City OKs $31.3M budget; NRoute funds pending By Steve Sanoski email@example.com

WEATHER Today: Chance of rain; high of 95 Tonight: Partly cloudy; low of 70
The City of Vicksburg’s $31.3 million budget for the new fiscal year beginning Oct. 1 was approved by a 2-1 vote Friday, with South Ward Alderman Sid Beauman voting against the spending plan because of a $135,000 allocation to the NRoute public transit system. “We’ve discussed this sev-
eral times, and I think we stated that we would not fund NRoute until they furnish us with an audit,” Beauman said. “I’ve checked into it, and this does not prohibit me from voting on budgetary items over the next year.” Fiscal year budgets must be approved by Wednesday, according to state law. Earlier this week, the Warren County Board of Supervisors approved its $14.8 mil-
lion spending plan, which includes a $30,100 contribution to NRoute. City Accountant Doug Whittington said the NRoute allocation is in the budget pending an independent audit is presented to the mayor and aldermen. Mayor Paul Winfield said he’s not wavering on the city’s audit request, and added NRotue operations need to be See Budget, Page A7.

TODAY IN HISTORY 1941: Groundbreaking takes place for the Pentagon, now headquarters of the U.S. Department of Defense. 1970: Ford Motor Co. introduces the Pinto, a compact that would become caught up in controversy over the safety of its gas tank. (The Pinto was discontinued in 1980.) 2000: A report released by the Federal Trade Commission says the movie, video game and music industries aggressively marketed to underage youths violent products that carried adult ratings, a finding rejected by entertainment producers. 2001: Nearly 3,000 people are killed on America’s worst day of terrorism. Hijackers seize four jetliners, two of which smash into New York’s World Trade Center, causing the twin towers to fall; one jetliner plows into the Pentagon; and the fourth crashes into a field in western Pennsylvania.
NEW YORK — They will read the names, of course, the names of every victim who died in the Sept. 11 attacks. The bells will ring. And then that moment of unity will give way to division • Security as activtight as Musists hoist lims end Rasigns and madan/A8 march, • Islamic colsome for lege opens and some against a doors amid planned furor/B1 mosque two blocks from ground zero. This 9/11 is more political and contentious than the eight before it, with grievRev. Terry ing family Jones members on opposite sides of the mosque battle. The debate became so heated that President Barack Obama felt the need to remind Americans: “We are not at war against Islam.” Still, there were signs Friday that religious tensions were abating, and that hushed tones would replace the harsh rhetoric that threatened to overshadow the commemoration of the terrorist attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people in New York, Washington and Shanksville, Pa. The son of an anti-Muslim pastor in Florida confirmed that his father would not — at least for now — burn copies of the Quran, a plan that inflamed much of the Muslim world and drew a stern rebuke from Obama. Activists in New York insisted their intentions were peaceful. “It’s a rally of remembrance for tens of thousands who lost loved ones that day,” said Pamela Geller, a conservative blogger and host of the anti-mosque demonstration. “It’s not a political event, it’s a human rights event.” The site of the proposed mosque and Islamic center is already used for services,

court report from court records
Continued from Page A1. but it was padlocked Friday, closed until Sunday. Police guarded the block, and worshippers were redirected to a different prayer room 10 blocks away. Some supporters planned a vigil near the proposed Islamic center’s site Friday evening instead of today, saying they wanted to avoid entangling the mosque controversy and the Sept. 11 observance. Organizers “believe that tomorrow is a day for mourning and remembrance,” Jennifer Carnig, a spokeswoman for the New York Civil Liberties Union, one of the vigil’s sponsors, said Friday. For Terry Jones, pastor of a 50-member Pentecostal church in Florida, it was to be a day to burn the Quran. He backed off that threat after drawing angry protests across the Muslim world, a call from the secretary of defense and impassioned pleas to call it off from religious and political leaders and his own daughter. “There will be no Quran burning tomorrow,” Jones’ 29-year old son, Luke Jones, told reporters outside his father’s Gainesville church Friday. He added that he could not predict what might happen in the future. Terry Jones had previously said he would cancel his plan if the leader of the planned New York Islamic center, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, would agree to move the project to another location. Jones claimed Thursday that an imam in Florida had told him the mosque would be moved. That imam later said Jones was mistaken, that he had only arranged a meeting with Rauf in New York today. Rauf, however, said that wasn’t true, either, that he had no plans to meet with Jones, though he added in a statement Friday that he is open to seeing anyone “seriously committed to pursuing peace.” The carefully worded text seemed to leave open the possibility of a meeting, but only if Jones proved himself to be a serious peacemaker. With that caveat, it would seem unlikely that the imam would meet with a man whose threat to desecrate the Muslim holy book stirred anger and protest and even some bloodshed in the Islamic world.

Luke Jones, son of the Rev. Terry Jones, speaks to reporters Friday in Gainesville, Fla. were injured Friday in scattered protests of Jones’ plan. Only a few thousand people attended those rallies and no large-scale demonstrations were reported elsewhere. In Indonesia, the world’s most populous Muslim country, cleric Rusli Hasbi told 1,000 worshippers at Friday prayers that whether or not Jones burns the Quran, he has already “hurt the heart of the Muslim world.” As on other 9/11 anniversaries, official ceremonies were planned at the three locations where the terrorists struck. Obama will be at the Pentagon, Vice President Joe Biden will go to New York, and first lady Michelle Obama and former first lady Laura Bush will travel to Shanksville. Obama told a White House news conference that Sept. 11 would be “an excellent time” for the country to reflect on the fact that there are millions of Muslims who are American citizens, that they also are fighting in U.S. uniforms in Afghanistan, and “we don’t differentiate between ‘them’ and ‘us.’ It’s just ‘us.”’ Biden will attend the largest commemoration, at a park near ground zero, where 2,752 people were killed when Muslim extremists flew planes into the twin towers of the World Trade Center. Houses of worship in
the city will toll bells at 8:46 a.m., when the first plane struck the north tower, and three more times to mark the moment the second plane hit the south tower and to observe the times each tower fell. Activists are organizing a pair of rallies — one against the planned Islamic center, one supporting it — to follow the official ceremony. Sally Regenhard, who lost her firefighter son, Christian Regenhard, planned to attend the morning ceremony and the anti-mosque protest. “The purpose is to speak out and express our feelings that this mosque, the location of it, is a grievous offense to the sensitivity of 9/11 families,” Regenhard said. “There’s nothing political about people who want to speak out against something they think is so wrong, so hurtful and so devastating.” But Donna Marsh O’Connor, whose pregnant daughter, Vanessa, was killed in the attacks, supports the mosque. She said she strongly opposes the antimosque rally and the political motivations behind it. “It’s more of the same hatemongering and fear-mongering that’s been going on for years,” O’Connor said. “People have a right to free speech. But if they’re talking about sensitivities to 9/11
families, why are they rallying and doing events on a day we should spend thinking about those we lost?” John Bolton, who was U.S. ambassador to the United Nations under President George W. Bush, was expected to send a videotaped message of support to the anti-mosque rally, as was conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart. Anti-Islam Dutch politician Geert Wilders, who advocates banning the Quran and taxing Muslim women who wear head scarves, plans to address the crowd in person, as do a handful of Republican congressional candidates who have made opposition to the mosque a centerpiece of their campaigns. Also today, former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin was expected to observe the anniversary in Alaska with Fox News TV host Glenn Beck. New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan spoke out Friday against today’s planned New York protests, saying Sept. 11 “has become a holy day in our community and our nation.” “We must never allow Sept. 11th to become a time for protest and division,” he added. “Instead, this day must remain a time for promoting peace and mutual respect.”
In Warren County Circuit Court for the week ending Friday: • Joseph Stevens Smith, 40, 3805 Hollywood Ave., Jackson, pleaded guilty to possession of cocaine and possession of methamphetamine and was sentenced by Judge M. James Chaney to eight years in prison followed by five years of probation, plus a $5,000 fine and $622.50 in costs. Smith was arrested March 1, 2009. • Lonia Alonzo Wright, 28, 2630 Ken Karyl Ave., pleaded guilty to statutory rape and was sentenced by Chaney to one year in prison followed by five years of probation, plus a $2,000 fine and $322.50 in costs. Wright was arrested Oct. 29, 2008. In Sharkey County Circuit Court: • Jimmy Moore Huff Jr., 28, 4236 Spanish Fort Road, Holly Bluff, was found guilty of violating probation and sentenced by Judge Isadore Patrick to complete the Harbor House drug and alcohol treatment program at his own expense, followed by two years in the Mississippi Department of Corrections Intensive Supervision Program (house arrest), then by up to five years of probation. Huff was arrested Dec. 6, 2006, for grand larceny.

Feds: Lift on drilling moratorium up to the industry BILOXI (AP) â€” A key U.S. government official said Friday the moratorium on deepwater oil drilling likely wonâ€™t be extended past Nov. 30, but whether it is cut short will be entirely up to the industry. Michael Bromwich, director of the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement, said during a break in a public forum in coastal Mississippi that the industry must comply with current and soon-to-beimposed safety regulations. He said the government is
Michael Bromwich, director of the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, hopes to report to Interior Secretary Ken Salazar in coming weeks and possibly make recommendations on the scope and duration of the moratorium. mindful of the impact the moratorium has had on communities that rely on offshore drilling. But it must also be concerned about the impact from the April 20 Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico that killed 11 workers and led to 206 million gallons of oil spewing from BP PLCâ€™s undersea well.
Bromwich hopes to report to Interior Secretary Ken Salazar in coming weeks and possibly make recommendations on the scope and duration of the moratorium. He said that among the options the government could consider would be lifting the moratorium early or lifting it with conditions. â€œThere really
havenâ€™t been any discussions about lengthening it,â€? Bromwich said. Meanwhile, BP is inching closer to plugging its well for good. The so-called bottom kill operation in which mud and cement will be pumped in through a relief well to seal the busted well from the bottom was initially supposed to

Consultants hired by the commission on Barbourâ€™s advice recommended the consolidation of about 20 districts instead of the 50 proposed by the governor.
The commission recommended that consolidation continue to be voluntary with the state providing some incentives to entice mergers. The final report recommends that school districts
within a county merge some administrative functions, such as the purchase of supplies. The commission also said the Legislature should provide some financial incentives to districts to consolidate. The panel, headed by Tupelo banker Aubrey Patterson, said school districts that do consolidate should not be penalized for low achievement scores, and should be exempt from such standards for a while. The state Department of Education also would provide technical assistance to any newly consolidated districts.

Ex-La. senator dead of cancer METAIRIE, La. (AP) â€” Former state Sen. Ken Hollis, who worked to keep the Saints in New Orleans, bring legalized gambling to Louisiana and establish state-sponsored property insurance, has died. He was 68. He died Friday morning of cancer at Ochsner Medical Center, his family said. A funeral service will be held at Lake Lawn Metairie Funeral Home on Monday. A memorial service is planned for Tuesday at 11 a.m. at the Old State Capitol in Baton Rouge. The Metairie Republican worked in the state Senate for 26 years, chairing the Senate Commerce Committee, before term limits forced him out in 2007.
The defendants contended it would be difficult to answer the suit filed by the Southern Poverty Law Center on behalf of Cirila Cruz because details involving Youth Court proceedings remain under seal. â€œNo meaningful discovery can be conducted as long as large amounts of what plain-
tiffs deem as relevant facts are not open for discussion,â€? they said in the motion. U.S. Magistrate Linda Anderson granted the request, extending the deadline from Sept. 17 to Oct. 26. Attorney Roy C. Williams, who represented the hospital and Abigail Medina, didnâ€™t
return a call Friday. The suit also names MDHS; Vicki Hayes, an MDHS social worker and her supervisor, Ralph Mathews, as defendants. Jan Schaefer, a spokeswoman for the state Attorney Generalâ€™s Office, said a response for MDHS would be filed in a few weeks.

Judge grants extra time in immigrant motherâ€™s suit JACKSON (AP) â€” A judge has given Singing River Hospital and one of its employees more time to respond to a federal lawsuit accusing them of conspiring with the Mississippi Department of Human Services to take a Mexican immigrantâ€™s child so a white family could adopt the girl.
Deputy Meghan Russell said both were killed with a shotgun, and their son was arrested. The suspect was taken into custody Friday at West Ouachita High School about 10 miles from the familyâ€™s house. The boy was being held in juvenile detention. It was unclear if he had an attorney.

More talks needed regarding federal dollars From other Mississippi newspapers: • Northeast Daily Journal, Tupelo: Additional discussions are needed about whether to spend or save between $127 million and $130 million in enhanced Medicaid funding Mississippi seems likely to receive for fiscal year 2011 after Gov. Haley Barbour formally requests the funds recently provided by congressional action. In the same appropriations bill, Congress also provided almost $98 million for Mississippi’s local school districts to help them offset teachers lost to funding cuts in the recession-related state revenue squeeze. Medicaid funds play into the school funding situation because extra federal money for the state’s Medicaid health care program for the needy would free some stategenerated tax funds for public schools,
universities, mental health care and other needs. The two appropriations are part of a $26 billion federal bill passed in August providing Medicaid funds nationwide and school funds for every state usually described as a partial extension of the economic stimulus. States like Mississippi, despite protests by some politicians who ended up spending and making recommendations for spending the stimulus, desperately needed the federal assistance to maintain a reasonable level of state services and commitments. Barbour’s spokesman, Dan Turner, said Sept. 1 that the governor would write the required letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sibelius requesting the Medicaid money. Barbour has no direct control over
the nearly $98 million for local schools, but he can urge districts not to spend it until the 2012 budget cycle. Despite declarations by House and Senate leaders and Barbour that the Medicaid portion of the extra funds will be saved for the 2012 budget cycle, some legislators, some school leaders and school advocates want more latitude with the funds than setting the whole amount aside. Rep. Steve Holland, D-Plantersville, suggests a reasonable and appropriate forum for further discussions: Legislative Budget Committee hearings begin around the middle of September, centering on the 2012 budget, which will be dealt with in the 2011 legislative session. Holland said he hopes for a “meeting of minds” on the issue, and we believe that is a reasonable goal.
Feds should drop drilling moratorium now The Clarion-Ledger, Jackson: Less than a week after Labor Day, there is a sizable segment of the economy of the Gulf states that has very little to celebrate. President Barack Obama’s offshore drilling moratorium in reaction to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill has put many of those employed in the offshore drilling industry among the 11.5 percent of Mississippians who are unemployed. During a meeting of the Southern Governors’ Association recently in Alabama, Gov. Haley Barbour likened the moratorium to “pouring salt in a wound.” Barbour told fellow governors that the
offshore drilling moratorium had deepened the impact of the Gulf oil spill in all Gulf states and was resulting in oil companies leaving the Gulf to pursue drilling opportunities elsewhere. Alabama Gov. Bob Riley said states that allow offshore drilling should share in more of the federal revenue because the BP oil spill was a wakeup call about what can happen to the states’ economies. North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue told the officials that her state would oppose drilling off its coast unless it gets a share of the revenue and is convinced the drilling is safe, according to The Associated Press.
The federal government received $5.4 billion from royalties from all of the leases in the Gulf in 2009, $14.5 billion in 2008, $6.4 billion in 2007, and $6.9 billion in 2006, according to numbers from Riley’s office. Gulf states that take the risks for the rest of the nation should receive a higher percentage of the royalties. The offshore drilling moratorium seemed a logical reaction to the oil spill, but now has become an overreaction. The administration should drop the moratorium while pursuing investigations to ensure the safety technology works as it should and that regulations are strictly enforced.
Drop talk of state immigration reform The Sun Herald, Biloxi, Gulfport: Perhaps because the Coast has always been home to the most diverse population in Mississippi, the influx of people who speak or eat or dress a little differently is taken as just one more ingredient in our vibrant society. And so it is with the Hispanics among us. Or at least it should be. But there is a disturbing suggestion being tossed around that the Mississippi Legislature should emulate lawmakers in Arizona and wade into a distinctly federal jurisdiction: immigration. While we do not doubt that many of the newly arrived immigrants among us came here without going through the legal process, Mississippi is hardly confronting the same situation as states along the border with Mexico. In fact,
to get here, immigrants had to pass through or stop short of much more lucrative locales, because Lord knows Mississippi offers fewer subsidies than most states. On the Coast, we have seen a great number of new faces because after Hurricane Katrina there was work here for anyone willing to do it. The new arrivals roofed, cleared debris and were instrumental in speeding up the pace of our recovery. Many made homes here. Now, as the work has slowed and some tax-paying workers and contractors struggle to compete with underthe-radar workers who can undercut their bids, the welcome mat is being yanked back. Unfortunately, many people assume that every Hispanic face they see is
here illegally, and that’s not true. We already have laws that prohibit employers from choosing an illegal vs. a legal resident simply because they can pay them less, off the books, and not pay Social Security and other taxes. What we need is those laws enforced. To try to reduce the number of illegal immigrants tempting employers, the Obama administration is sending additional National Guard members to patrol the Mexican-American border. It is there, in the Southwest, not here in the Southeast that more action is needed to stem the flow of illegal immigration. As Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss., recently put it while visiting the Sun Herald, “We don’t have the crisis Arizona has.” Nor are we likely to.

There is something about being in a college town on a game day, especially the first game day of the year, especially in a town full of earnest Davids in a state of greedy Goliaths.
Christmas Eve in Auburn with a ‘War Eagle’ AUBURN, Ala. — I am in one of those fancy grocery stores with organic-this and organic-that and prices that make you stagger to the checkout with just a few items, hungrier than you were before. Beware a grocery with “earth” or “fresh” in its name. It is Christmas Eve here, or the night before the first football game of the season, a time when even the most flintyeyed veteran of losing seasons believes. Anything is possible. Oh, yes. This just could be the year. Santa Claus is coming, and in his big bag is a Heisman quarterback. I’ve been good. Please, let this be the year. There is something RHETA about being in a colgRIMSLEY lege town on a game day, especially the first game day of the year, especially in a town full of earnest Davids in a state of greedy Goliaths. I had forgotten the palatable excitement; the way grown men pass one another in a grocery aisle and say “War Eagle!” with straight faces and meaning. I am not here for the game, having “graduated” years ago to a preference for watching them on television, but I do enjoy the foreplay. I imagine that every bag of baked and organic potato chips at the checkout counter is going to be served on a tailgate, or in an orange-andblue den, in front of televisions the size of the old “Debbie Does Dallas” drive-in movie screens. The first time I went to a game my freshman year, I debated for a week what to wear, then chose the obvious: purple velveteen hot pants with a matching tunic top. And, yes, high heels and hose. It must have been 95 degrees in the shade, but I didn’t mind. You do your part for the cause. Once you have grown up an Auburn fan, listening to Bear Bryant’s mumbled, almost incoherent recapitulation of a slaughter on Sunday television, you are ready for life — its disappointments, lopsided advantages, relentlessness and rare, sweet moments. You are ready to do battle with the devil. And here I am, the age of those embarrassing alums who used to show up for games wearing orange and blue for god’s sake, feeling a stirring because it’s the night before the season begins and this year could be different. So what if our cross-state nemesis is the reigning No. 1 team in the nation, picked by pollsters to remain No. 1 until the End of Time, when the Bear will call his son Nick Saban home? Experts could be wrong. Yes, I’m disgusted by the money spent on coaches while libraries languish and professors are underpaid, you betcha. And I think it’s obscene that the stadiums dominate both physically and emotionally entire campuses like the one here on East Alabama’s plains. Darn tootin’. But the night before the first game of the season I might as well be 18, rummaging through the closet for the 10th time, trying to decide if I can climb stadium steps in 4-inch clogs and how to wear my hair so that it won’t interfere with a chrysanthemum corsage. I am definitely part of the problem. As I turn a corner between the Cheese of Holland and an olive bar, an apparent student in a ripped T-shirt of the right colors wings me on the right and says, “excuse me.” And I inexplicably say, “War Eagle!” the way some old coot would. The kid has the graciousness to smile.

Obama: Politics hampering economy fix WA S H I N GT O N ( A P ) — Facing big Democratic losses in November, President Barack Obama blamed Republicans and election-year politics Friday for thwarting his efforts to do more to spur a listless national economy. He challenged Congress to quit squabbling and quickly approve “what we all agree on” — a reprieve for expiring tax cuts for the middle class. “Let’s work on that. Let’s do it,” he told a nationally broadcast White House news conference, his first since last May. Obama said his economic programs were helping, but “the hole the recession left was huge and progress has been painfully slow.” Noting the stubbornly high jobless rate, Obama acknowledged that many voters in the Nov. 2 midterm elections probably will blame him for economic hard times and could take it out on congressional Democrats. He said that “since I’m the
James Jr. said: “It gladdens my heart when someone tells me that I helped make their loss easier to bear.” I asked about the costs of a funeral many years ago. It was about $3, he said. Sometimes people would bring produce instead of money to pay for the funeral: “This was during the Great Depression.” The funeral home has often donated funerals during times of disaster, such as the tornado of 1953. “There was also a hurricane in Cary during the ’60s,” James Jr. said. “My dad and his brothers went to Cary to pick up bodies to bring them to Vicksburg because there were no funeral facilities in Cary. During such disasters, we charged nothing.” Asked about the future, James Jr. said, “ We will continue to carry on this tradition.” The funeral home is also operated by Ronald C. Regan. •

get us back into a mess, then I think the Democrats will do very well.” Polls suggest large-scale Republican victories and Democratic losses in the midterm races. Obama pressed his case for Congress to renew most of the tax breaks enacted in 2001 and 2003 under President George W. Bush that are set to expire at the end of this year. But the president and Democratic congressional leaders want to end the cuts for the nation’s wealthiest — households earning over $250,000 a year, or over $200,000 for single filers. Republicans want all the cuts extended, saying the economy is too fragile to be raising taxes for anyone, and some Democrats have suggested a compromise — extending all the cuts but just for a year or two. Obama suggested he might be open to “further conversation” down the road with Republicans.

Stocks continue to climb on investor confidence NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks edged higher Friday, extending a rally that began nearly two weeks ago, as investors held on to their newfound optimism about the economy. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 47 points in very light trading. It was the seventh day of gains out of the past eight for the index. Treasury prices eased as traders
became more willing to take on risk. Stocks have escaped their August doldrums and moved steadily higher in September thanks to a series of encouraging signals on the economy. The latest came Friday morning with a report that wholesale inventories shot up in July, a sign of confidence that retail sales will eventu-
ally pick up. “It’s becoming more evident that confidence by consumers and the labor market is improving,” said Tim Speiss, chairman of EisnerAmper’s Personal Wealth Advisors practice. “It’s tepid; It’s weak; But it’s progress.” The Dow rose 47.53, or 0.5 percent, to close at 10,462.77. That’s the highest close since
Aug. 10. But it’s still only up 0.3 percent this year. Broader indexes also rose. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 5.37, or 0.5 percent, to 1,109.55, while the Nasdaq composite index rose 6.28, or 0.3 percent, to 2,242.48. Bond prices dipped. Oil rose $2.20, or 3 percent, to $76.45 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.
Wall Street pay czar Rain Boots steps down from post Adults & Children WASHINGTON — The Obama administration has chosen a Treasury Department lawyer to replace pay czar Kenneth Feinberg, who stepped down Friday, ending a contentious 14-month tenure. Feinberg was accused of failing to act aggressively enough to recoup excessive pay for Wall Street bankers. He said in a final report that he thought his work had helped reform compensation policies. The administration says Feinberg will be replaced by Patricia Geoghegan. She will be responsible for setting pay guidelines for top executives at the four companies still getting exceptional assistance from the government’s $700 billion bailout fund. Those companies are American International Group, General Motors, Chrysler and Ally Financial Inc., the financing arm for GM and Chrysler.

James Jefferson Jr. told me his great-uncle W.H. Jefferson and great-aunt Lucy Jefferson were founders. They passed the business on to their nephews — W.H. Jefferson Sr., James Jefferson Sr. and George Lee Jefferson Sr. The Jefferson family has been in Vicksburg for 117 years. “I grew up in this business,” James Jr. said. “We have always lived right next to the funeral home.” He remembers a conversation with his uncle W.H. Jefferson, who said: “Times will be good, and times will be bad. But remember you are here to serve. If you focus on service first, your business will always be successful. This is a timeless principle.” Asked about his calling in life,

What we’ve asked for, we haven’t gotten,” he said of the audit request. “We just can’t — and we will not continue to operate the way that we’ve been operating over there.” NRoute announced in late August it would be cutting Saturday service and two of its nine routes in an attempt to shore up an operating deficit before the end of the fiscal year. It operated as a city department at its outset in the summer of 2006, but has been operating independently since February 2007. NRoute Executive Director Evelyn Bumpers and the five-member NRoute Transportation Commission — whose members are appointed by the mayor and aldermen — oversee the transit system’s spending. The majority of its operating budget, which annually totals about $780,000, comes from the Federal Transit Authority via the Mississippi Department of Transportation. Shortly after the city’s budget was ratified by a split vote, Beauman also cast the lone dissenting vote against 2011 fiscal year budget for the VicksburgTallulah Regional Airport at Mound, La., because it represented an increase in city spending on the airport — which it equally funds with Warren County, Tallulah and Madison Parish. “You just can’t continue to spend money that you don’t have,” Beauman said of his vote against the VTR budget — which calls for each owner to contribute $46,478.50 toward operations in the coming year. “It’s just like with NRoute.” Earlier this week, Beauman also voted against jacking up spending on VTR in this year’s budget to $54,889.79, up $25,000 from the $29,889.79 the VTR board of directors had originally requested. Winfield and North Ward Alderman Michael Mayfield both said additional oversight of VTR is needed to keep costs from escalating year after year. The four municipal owners had each spent about $30,000 in operational costs since the airport opened in 1993 — until last year, that is, when the board of directors also asked for an additional $25,000 from each to pay bills near the end of the

On the agenda Meeting Friday, the Vicksburg Board of Mayor and Aldermen: • OK’d the property tax levy for fiscal year 2011, which begins Oct. 1. Millage rates will remain at 33.88 mills, with 22.79 going toward the general fund, 9.59 toward municipal bond repayments and 3.5 toward police and fire retirement funds. The rate has been unchanged since 1999. On a home valued at $100,000, taxes paid would be $358.80 at the rate. • Heard about upcoming events at the Southern Cultural Heritage Center from executive director Annette Kirklin. • OK’d naming a road, off the 2800 block of U.S. 61 South, Fog Drive, as requested by the VicksburgWarren County E-911 Commission. • OK’d a notice to proceed on Levee Street Depot renovations, with the project to begin no later than Sept. 27, and OK’d signing final contractor estimates for the work. The depot will be renovated to include a transportation museum and office spaces via a $1.9 million federal grant. A ribbon cutting is planned for 10 a.m. Sept. 22. • Gave the Combs Foundation the OK to draft and administer a Staffing and Adequate Fire and Emergency Response federal grant via the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Representing Combs Foundation, Elvin Parker said the city will seek “in excess of $1 million” for fire department salaries and equipment. The grant would require no matching funds, and the Combs Foundation will be paid a 5 percent administration fee if the grant is approved. • OK’d a change order with Arrowhead Enterprises LLC of Vicksburg for a National Resource Conserfiscal year. “The City of Vicksburg is committed to this airport... but we have got to get a better grip on its operations. We have got to be more directly involved,” the mayor said. At a glance The city’s spending plan approved Friday included some variations in department spending compared
vation Service project on North Frontage Road near the Travel Inn, reflecting a reduction in the project cost by $15,910, to $232,587. • Took under advisement a request from Neil Williams of The Pour House, 614 Clay St., to support his application for resort status from the Mississippi Alcohol Beverage Control.

Continued from Page A1. aldermen OK’d the final agreement with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to accept the funding. “Something would really have to go wrong for this not to happen now.” Once the Corps, which is administering the funds via an infrastructure program known as Section 592, inks the agreement, the funding will be officially approved, Rainer said. He said the agreement would be sent to the Corps on Friday, and expects them to sign it in the coming week. “This is a very, very big deal,” Mayor Paul Winfield said after signing the agreement Friday. “We have very aged infrastructure that needs to be improved... and this is millions of dollars that we don’t have to pay to do it.” The city must match the Section 592 funding with $841,821, and plans to use charges from its water service to do so. Once the funding is in place, Rainer said the project will need to be designed and put to bid. He estimated that to take five to six months, with the nine-month installation to begin shortly thereafter. The project would see a 30-inch main installed from the plant on Haining Road east to North Washington Street, where it would head south toward downtown before running east up the steep banks near the historic Fort Nogales site. It would then be routed south beneath Fort Hill Drive and eventually tie into existing lines downtown. In total, 14,000 feet of 30-inch pipe would be installed. Meanwhile, an easement from the National Park Service is also needed, as part of the planned water line crosses through the Vicksburg National Military Park. Rainer said city officials have met with VNMP officials and that the chances of getting the easement “look good,” but stressed the NPS will have the final say. If the easement is not granted, Rainer said another route will be identified, which could delay the project. Though the city has roughly 10,000 water customers it serves directly, Rainer noted the existing main actually serves about 45,000 customers when outlying water districts that draw from the system are factored in. A second feed from the water treatment plant would prevent future disruptions in water service to the city if the current, single main is compromised. That happened in 2006 and was nearly experienced earlier this year. A land shift March 26 near the MV Mississippi at Jackson and Washington streets threw a 36-inch water main into jeopardy and nearly shut off water service to 90 percent the city’s customers. The Corps funded a $1.36 million rerouting of the line around the shift site via Main, Walnut and Jackson streets.

Iowa soldier to make history with top medal DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A 25-year-old soldier from Iowa who exposed himself to enemy gunfire to try to save two fellow soldiers will become the first living service member from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq to receive the Medal of Honor, the White House said Friday. President Barack Obama phoned Army Staff Sgt. Salvatore Giunta, on Thursday at the base in Italy where he’s stationed to tell him he’d be receiving Staff Sgt. the nation’s Salvatore Giunta highest military honor, Giunta’s father said. He will become the eighth service member to receive the Medal of Honor during operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. The seven previous medals were awarded posthumously. “It’s bittersweet for us,” said Steven Giunta, of Hiawatha. “We’re very proud of Sal. We can’t mention that enough, but in this event, two other soldiers were killed and that weighs heavy on us.” Giunta was serving as a rifle team leader with Company B 2nd Battalion, 503rd Infantry Regiment when an insurgent ambush split his squad into two groups on Oct. 25, 2007, in the Korengal Valley in Afghanistan, the White House said. Giunta exposed himself to enemy fire to pull a fellow soldier back to cover. He engaged the enemy again when he saw two insurgents carrying away a wounded soldier, 22-year-old Sgt. Joshua C. Brennan, of McFarland, Wis. Giunta killed one insurgent and wounded another before tending to Brennan, who died the next day. Giunta was previously awarded a Bronze Star and Purple Heart, among other medals. Giunta will be awarded his medal at a White House ceremony at a date yet to be determined. The president will also present the Medal of Honor posthumously to Staff Sgt. Robert Miller in a White House ceremony on Oct. 6.

Security tight as Muslims mark holy month’s end CAIRO (AP) — Far from the din and controversy roiling interfaith relations in the West, Muslims worldwide thronged mosques, cafes and parks Friday in a solemn and joyful end to the fasting month of Ramadan. Authorities increased security in some countries due to fears that violence could intrude on the celebrations, but for most Muslims it was a day of peace, family — and most important food. Friends and relatives feasted on spicy lamb, kebabs and saffron rice, while smokers happily puffed on cigarettes in broad daylight as the threeday Eid al-Fitr festival got under way across the Muslim world. During Ramadan, the faithful are supposed to abstain from food, drink, smoking and sex in a dawn-to-dusk period of self-sacrifice to commemorate the revelation of the Quran to the Prophet Muhammad.

A boy touches the head of a praying man Friday as Muslims in Lleida, Spain, mark the end of Ramadan. “It’s nice to be eating, drinking and smoking during the daytime,” said Jordanian banker Mutaz Kurdi, 37, as he walked his two children in an Amman park. “Fasting was difficult this year because of the summer heat.” Business was brisk for ice cream vendors in Baghdad, where children decked out
in holiday finery rode Ferris wheels at amusement parks and raced horse-drawn carts on traffic-free streets. Some boys battled each other with plastic guns, ignoring a ban on toy weapons imposed so children would not be mistaken for militants. Still, soldiers guarded playgrounds and public parks, and
additional military and police checkpoints were erected across the Iraqi capital — a reminder the country still faces near-daily bombings and shootings despite a dramatic drop in attacks. Ali Issa, a 41-year-old father of four from the Shiite slum of Sadr City, said Iraqis have little to look forward to this
holiday season, with prices on the rise and continuing political bickering. “The security situation is deteriorating and so is the economy,” Issa said. “This year, I only bought new dresses for my two girls while I asked the two boys to use their old clothes because I cannot afford new clothes for everybody.” In Yemen, authorities warned people to pray inside mosques and deployed heavy security after posters signed by alQaida threatened attacks. No outdoor prayers were held in two southern provinces after officials urged people to avoid large gatherings. War-weary Afghans marked the holiday with prayers for peace in mosques as well as family gatherings in homes. President Hamid Karzai urged the Taliban to lay down their arms and join peace talks — a theme so far unheeded by significant numbers of Taliban.
Iraq to pay $400M to Americans in Saddam-era settlements BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraq has agreed to pay $400 million to Americans who say they were abused by Saddam Hussein’s regime, U.S. and Iraqi officials said Friday. The agreement, recently signed by U.S. and Iraqi officials, represents a significant step forward for Iraq and could bring an end to years
of legal battles by Americans who claim to have been tortured or traumatized under Saddam’s regime. But the deal is likely to anger Iraqis who consider themselves the victims’ of both Saddam and the 2003 U.S. invasion, and wonder why they should pay money for wrongs committed by the
ousted dictator. The American Embassy spokesman in Iraq, David Ranz, said the agreement “to settle claims of American victims of the Saddam Hussein regime,” was signed Sept. 2. He gave no details of the agreement, including who the specific claimants are or the dollar amount involved.
A senior Iraqi government official confirmed the deal has been signed, and said Iraq agreed to pay about $400 million. He said the money would be given to Americans who were affected by the Iraqi invasion of neighboring Kuwait in 1990. Saddam’s government held hundreds of Americans hos-
tage during the run-up to the Gulf War, using them as human shields in hopes of staving off an attack by the U.S. and its allies. Many of the Americans pursued lawsuits for years against Saddam’s government. The Americans kept up their legal fight after Saddam was overthrown in 2003.
New rules would cut pilots’ hours WASHINGTON (AP) — Work hours would be shortened for pilots who fly at night while some pilots who fly during the day could spend more time in the cockpit under a government proposal to help prevent dangerous fatigue. The Federal Aviation Administration plan, which the agency has spent 15 months drafting, is an attempt to overhaul pilot work rules to reflect current scientific understanding of how fatigue impacts human performance and prevent errors that cause accidents. The rules were last updated over two decades ago and most date back to the 1940s. The proposal released Friday would bar airlines from scheduling pilots to be on duty — a combination of being at work ready to fly or in the cockpit flying — longer than 13 hours in a 24-hour period, three hours less than current regulations. At night, that limit could slide to as few as nine hours. However, airlines would be allowed to schedule pilots who start their work day between 7 a.m. and 1 p.m. for as much as 10 hours of actual flying time — two more hours than currently allowed. Airlines would also have to allow pilots nine hours of rest between work days, an increase of an hour. The proposed work rules would apply to all airlines, including cargo carriers and charter airlines.

Grandparents must respect parents’ boundaries
Q: I don’t like the way my son and his wife are raising their kids. I don’t want to interfere, but shouldn’t I have a say in what’s good for my own grandchildren? Juli: There is an excellent chance that your son and daughter-in-law know that you have some concerns about how they’re raising your grandFOCUS ON kids. THE FAMILY Young parents harbor a lot of doubts of their own and quickly pick up the vibe when a close friend FOCUS ON or relaTHE FAMILY tive disapproves of their parenting. Your son and his wife are likely to be more defensive and withdrawn from you the more they pick up on your concerns. Whether or not you realize it, you potentially have a fair amount of influence in their parenting. They may even welcome your perspective and opinion — but only if they feel safe with you. Influence is a tricky thing. When you overreach with it, you lose it. A lot of parents and in-laws are too forceful with their opinions and unsolicited advice. This causes a young couple to distance themselves in order to ward off potential criticism. Your greatest influence is your presence with your son, his wife and children. Even if you never mention your concerns or offer advice, the way you carry yourself, show unconditional love, and the character you model will leave a tremendous impression. My encouragement to you is to build a trusting relationship, particularly with your daughter-inlaw. Find ways that you can genuinely compliment her as a wife and mother, remembering that motherhood can, at times, be an exhausting marathon. Show her that you care about her as a person, and as difficult as it may be, let go of your concerns for now. The day will come when she is desperate for a word of advice or wisdom. She’s far more likely to seek you out if you have built a trusting relationship than if she feels threatened by your disapproval. •

St. Mary’s Episcopal Church at Bolton
Church at Bolton set for Sunday reopening By Rebecca Blackwell Drake For The Vicksburg Post
On Sunday afternoon, the Holy Eucharist will be celebrated at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in Bolton. The Rev. Billie Abraham, rector of St. Alban’s Episcopal Church at Bovina, will officiate. The service will be the first at St. Mary’s since it closed a decade and a half ago. In preparation for the reopening of the historic church, members of St. Alban’s designated two work-days. Participants of all faiths came to help with the cleanup. Among those attending the first workday were Carolyn and Marty Mellon, former members of St. Mary’s, and Dan and Brenda Mashburn. Dan, a longtime member of the Bolton Methodist Church, recalled growing up in Bolton and going to school in St. Mary’s parish hall. “The Methodist, Baptist and Episcopal churches were like families in the community,” he said. Even after St. Mary’s closed its doors, Dan
If you go A service celebrating the reopening of St. Mary’s Episcopal Church at Bolton will be at 4 p.m. Sunday. The Rev. Billie Abraham, rector of St. Alban’s Episcopal Church at Bovina, will made sure that the lights on the cross above the entrance remained illuminated. “Only once did the lights on the cross go out, and that was when Katrina hit.” Abraham commented on the efforts of St. Alban’s and the Episcopal Diocese to reopen St. Mary’s: “Duncan Gray, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Mississippi, visited St. Alban’s several weeks ago and was not at all surprised that St. Alban’s had come forward with an offer to help revitalize St. Mary’s. The common denominator was an appreciation for history. “St. Alban’s is preparing to celebrate its 153rd anniversary on the last weekend of October,” Abraham continued. “St. Mary’s also has a long history, but it does
officiate. To reach St. Mary’s, take the Bolton exit off Interstate 20, and travel to the fourway stop. Take a left, and the church is on the left, next to the Methodist church.
not have an active congregation at this time. That is changing.” In response to St. Alban’s desire to help revive St. Mary’s, the diocese gave Abraham permission to reopen the church and celebrate the Holy Eucharist once a quarter. Assisting her will be Harvey Smith, a lay worship leader from St. Alban’s who will lead evening prayer once a month. “Terry and Charlie Brantley, members of St. Alban’s church and residents of Edwards, were responsible for getting the two churches together,” Abraham said. St. Mary’s, located in the heart of Bolton, is one of the oldest Episcopal churches in Hinds County. As early as 1855, Bishop William Mercer Green, the first bishop of
Mississippi, celebrated the Holy Eucharist in Bolton. Following the service, Green wrote in his journal, “The day was pleasant and I found, on my arrival, a large congregation of blacks as well as whites comfortably seated under the cotton shed. The crude extemporary seats were covered with clean cotton bagging and set on a triple tier of bales.” The cotton-shed service, even in its primitive setting, compelled local villagers to work for the establishment of an Episcopal church in Bolton. On April 8, 1872, members of the vestry signed articles related to the organization of St. Mary’s Church. Four years later, the church was built and the first service in the new sanctuary was held April 10, 1876, with
Green officiating. The Collect for the occasion proclaimed, “O most glorious God, whom the heaven of heavens cannot contain; Graciously accept the Dedication of this place to thy service; and grant that all who shall call upon thee here may worship thee in spirit and in truth, and may their lives show forth thy praise; through Jesus Christ our Lord Amen.” Green later made note in his journal: “Preached at Bolton in their new and beautiful church, which, though in an unfinished state, may claim, both in design and workmanship, to be an ornament to the Diocese, and a monument in praise of the taste and labor of the builders.” For over a century, St. Mary’s remained active as a church family and played an important role in the community. It was a sad day when the church closed. So, mark 4 p.m. Sunday on your calendar, and plan to attend the reopening of St. Mary’s Church.
Islamic college opens doors amid 9/11, Quran furor Zaytuna aiming to be first fully accredited Muslim school in U.S. By The Associated Press BERKELEY, Calif — Amid the uproar over the proposed mosque near ground zero in New York, a new Islamic college has opened its doors in California with plans to educate a new generation of Muslim-American leaders. Founded by three prominent Islamic scholars, Zaytuna College in Berkeley is a small school with five faculty members and 15 students in its inaugural freshman class. The school wants to become the country’s first fully accredited Muslim academic institution. Zaytuna College is opening at a time when fierce opposition to the proposed Islamic community center and mosque near the former World Trade Center has left many American Muslims
feeling under siege. Many mosques have boosted security ahead of today’s 9/11 terrorist attacks anniversary that some fear could bring trouble to Muslim communities. And the leader of a small Florida church that espouses antiIslam philosophy had threatened to burn copies of the Quran this evening. Zaytuna has generated little controversy in this famously liberal college town, but some conservatives question the founders’ motives. Frank Gaffney, president of the Center for Security Policy, a conservative think tank, accuses the school of seeking to indoctrinate students and spread Islam in America. “This is stealth jihad in the sense that it is about promoting in the United States
incubators for sharia,” the religious law of Islam, said Gaffney, who served as deputy assistant secretary of defense in the Reagan administration. Zaytuna’s founders dismiss such criticism, saying it represents the views of a small minority of Americans who don’t understand Islam. “I think Zaytuna College over time can help contribute to a healthier understanding of Islam by removing ignorance,” said co-founder Zaid Shakir, an Air Force veteran and California native. The college is seeking to “prepare morally committed human beings that can go out and make a difference in the world as Muslims.” Zaytuna, which means “olive tree” in Arabic, offers See College, Page B4.

devotion “Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for He hath visited and redeemed His people.” Luke 1:68 • Fanny Crosby wrote, “Redeemed, how I love to proclaim it! Redeemed by the blood of the Lamb; Redeemed through His infinite mercy. His child and forever I am.” Do you love to proclaim it? Oh, how I pray you do. • Issac Watts wrote, “Were the whole realm of nature mine, That were a present far too small: Love so amazing, so divine, Demands my soul, my life, my all.” Have you given your soul, your life, your all to this Amazing Love? • Jesus did not bathe this planet with His blood to have you serve the world, the flesh, and the devil. He died to make you holy. You are not your own. First Corinthians 6:20 says, “For ye are bought with a price; therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.” Devotion written by Dr. Adrian Rogers in conjunction with Love Worth Finding Ministries.

College Continued from Page B1. an education that combines training in Arabic language and Islamic scholarship with courses in the humanities and social sciences. There have been other attempts to start Muslim colleges in the U.S., but those schools have closed or remained obscure. Zaytuna is housed in rented classrooms at the American Baptist Seminary of the West, just a few blocks from the UC Berkeley campus. “Religion is the main part of my life. I have religion and then everything else comes around that,” said Sumaya Mehai, 21. The college is working toward earning accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, one of six regional accrediting associations in the U.S., a process that is expected to take four to eight years. The three founders of the school are all leading Islamic scholars. Hatem Bazian is a Palestinian-Ameircan who teaches Islamic studies at the University of California, Berkeley. Shakir and Hamza Yusuf are American converts who spent years studying Islam overseas before becoming scholars in the U.S.

SIDELINES Zvonareva reaches U.S. Open finals
NEW YORK (AP) — Vera Zvonareva reached her second straight Grand Slam final, beating topseeded Caroline Wozniacki 6-4, 6-3 in the U.S. Open on Friday. The 20-year-old Wozniacki made her first major final at Flushing Meadows in 2009 and had been dominant in her run this year. She lost just 17 games in advancing to the semifinals, the fewest since Serena Williams dropped 14 in 2002. But Zvonareva knocked Wozniacki off rhythm with powerful serves and assertive play, as the wind again made for difficult play at Arthur Ashe Stadium. The seventh-seeded Russian had five aces, and she won 70 percent of points on her first serve and 13 of 17 points at the net.

Warren Central linebacker Given Breckinridge wraps up Natchez running back Joe Bruce Friday. Natchez won 29-10.
Bulldogs bulldoze Vikings By Steve Wilson firstname.lastname@example.org Football is a game about imposition of will. Coaches love to talk about it. Natchez did exactly that on Friday night, dominating the third quarter with two long drives to earn a 29-10 victory over Warren Central on Friday. The third quarter was the turning point, as quarterback Javon Washington and the offense, clinging to a 14-7 lead, took command thanks to domination at the point of attack. “We’ve had instances of where we’re able to do that and we’re proud of our guys up front,” Natchez coach Lance Reed said. “Our guys were able to be physical up
prep football Natchez 29, Warren Central 10 Records: Natchez (4-0), Warren Central (1-3) The skinny: Natchez took command with two long drives in the third quarter Up next: Bye week for Warren Central front and take charge.” The Bulldogs (4-0) took advantage of a shanked punt at the WC 49. Washington hit Damion Williams for a 39-yard gain, Kevin Bailey took a handoff eight yards and Washington capped the drive with a 10-yard option keeper off a zone read. WC punter Devon Bell
ripped a 40-yard punt that rolled out of bounds at the Natchez 18. But the Bulldog offense went to work, as Washington hit 3-of-4 passes on the drive and Bailey piled up carry after carry on an 11-play, 82-yard march. Williams took the jet sweep handoff 11 yards to paydirt to give Natchez a commanding 26-7 lead with 1:27 remaining in the third quarter. “This is very disappointing,” first-year Warren Central coach Josh Morgan said. “This was a game we felt we could win and we had our opportunities. We just didn’t take advantage.” It was a career night for Natchez’s four-year starter at quarterback. Washington completed 14-of-23 passes for 208 yards
and one touchdown, a 5-yard bubble screen to Trevon Chatman in the first quarter. On the ground, the senior quarterback rushed eight times for 119 yards and two scores. “He’s the top prospect in the state and that’s why,” Morgan said about Washington. A costly loss for the Vikings going forward could be the loss of running back Shonn Jackson, who left in the first series of the third quarter after hearing a pop in his left knee. Jackson finished with 83 yards on nine carries with one score, a 43-yard carry in the second quarter. “We’re hoping for good news for him, his family and our football team,” Morgan said.

With only three teams in District 5-A, PCA must now beat Russell Christian on Oct. 1 and Newton County Academy in the season finale on Oct. 29 to reach the postseason for the seventh consecutive season. “It’s very frustrating,” PCA coach John Weaver said. “We had a good gameplan. I thought we had a really good shot at this one. I thought we could take one from them and it backfired.” University Christian’s linemen manhandled PCA (2-2, 0-1 District 5-A) on both sides of the ball.

Two interceptions prove costly for St. Al Gators By Jeff Byrd email@example.com MADISON — Two interception returns for touchdowns within a 16-second span cost the St. Aloysius Flashes the Strauss-Stallings trophy in its annual game with Madison-St. Joe, 21-6. The Flashes (2-2) were down just 7-6 with two minutes to play and had just picked up a first down on a fourth-down play at its own 41. Flashes coach B.J. Smithhart brought in reserve quarterback Carlisle Koestler in a bid to pace the offense in the two-minute drill after grinding out on first down. But Koestler’s first pass went too long and St. Joseph’s Jonathan Willis intercepted it at the 40 and returned it 60 yards for a touchdown with
Madison St. Joe 21, St. Al 6 Records: St. Al (2-2), Madison St. Joe (2-2) Skinny: Two interception returns for scores in a 16-second span cost St. Al in the Strauss-Stallings trophy game Next: St. Al has an open date 1:35 left in the game. Sixteen seconds later, Ford Biedenharn had his pass picked off at the St. Al 25 by Brett Burgess and he too, returned it for a score to cap the Bruins’ 21-6 win. St. Joe quarterback Peyton Willoughby said the win was huge for the Bruins. “This may be a bigger rivalry for us than St. Andrews is,” Willoughby
said. “We really wanted to get the trophy back. It was struggle. St. Al played really tough on defense. It was hard to get going.” Turnovers were the story. There were 10 in all. St. Al had six. Three passes were intercepted by the Bruins and there were three lost fumbles. St. Joe lost two fumbles and Willoughby was picked off twice. “I thought our defense played hard,” Smithhart said. “We just had those pick sixes in that one minute late in the game and that cost us. We’re just going through growing pains right now.” St. Al’s score came on the last play of the third quarter when Carlton Campbell busted through for a 51-yard touchdown run. The tying PAT, however, was blocked to
leave the score at 7-6. The St. Al defense stopped the Bruins on a third-and-one with three minutes to play to get one last chance. John Austin Jones came up with the two-yard loss to force the punt. But the two interceptions thwarted any comeback plans. Madison St. Joe scored in the second quarter on a 3-yard run by David Lemoine to cap a 59-yard drive. Blaine Jones had the PAT kick for a 7-0 lead with 6:37 left in the second quarter. Ford Biedenharn and Campbell each finished with 91 yards each to lead St. Al’s attack. Koestler was 5-of-9 passing for 77 yards. Willoughby was 7-of-18 for 77 yards as the Bruins were outgained 277 to 204.

NASCAR Harvick wins Nationwide race RICHMOND, Va. — Kevin Harvick passed Brad Keselowski for the lead with just over 50 laps to go Friday night and won the NASCAR Nationwide Series race for his third victory of the season and 37th overall. Keselowski fell just short in an otherwise remarkable performance. The series points leader went two laps down after a pit road problem before the midpoint of the 250-lap event at Richmond International Raceway. But he was back up to third when a caution flag came out with 46 laps to go. He was still third after the leaders all pitted, but spent the last 10 laps within a few car lengths of the leader. “We just weren’t good enough to beat Kevin legit tonight,” he said. Harvick slapped the wall at one point with Keselowski right behind him, but held on. “The way the lapped traffic fell just wasn’t real good for us, and then I got a little aggressive with the throttle and got the thing sideways,” he said of his contact with the safer barrier. “You can’t hardly tell the thing hit the wall, and hit it pretty hard.” Keselowski said he saved his tires for one final late push, but was still pleased. “To come back and get to the front and have a chance for the win, that’s the sign of a really strong team,” he said after padding his lead over Carl Edwards to 373 points with eight races remaining in the season. Kyle Busch is third, now 583 points behind.
BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Sept. 11 1985 — Pete Rose of the Cincinnati Reds becomes the all-time hit leader with his 4,192nd hit, breaking Ty Cobb’s record. Rose lines a 2-1 pitch off San Diego pitcher Eric Show to left-center field for a single in the first inning. It’s the 57th anniversary of Ty Cobb’s last game in the majors. 1994 — Andre Agassi wins the U.S. Open with a three-set victory over Michael Stich and becomes the first unseeded player to beat five seeded players in a Grand Slam and the first unseeded champion since Fred Stolle in 1966. 2001 — Sports come to a standstill in the wake of terrorist attacks in New York and Washington, with major league baseball postponing a full schedule of regular-season games for the first time since D-Day in 1944. 2005 — Drew Bledsoe becomes the 10th player in NFL history to throw for 40,000 yards in a career, leading Dallas to a 28-24 win over San Diego in his debut with the team.

Ole Miss defense aims for redemption By David Brandt AP sports writer JACKSON — It’s not even the middle of September, yet Ole Miss defensive tackle Jerrell Powe has already heard some people say the Rebels’ football season is already over. Such is the fallout after Saturday’s 49-48 double overtime loss to Jacksonville State, which will go down as one of the most embarrassing moments in program history. Powe admits it hasn’t been a fun week knowing his team has been a national punchline. But he’s been impressed by the resiliency of his teammates as they prepare to face Tulane today in New Orleans. “You can’t control what people on the outside think, but the guys on this team are still excited,” Powe said. “We’ve got a great team and this woke us up. The good thing about this is it happened early.” The biggest concern is patching up a defense that allowed Jacksonville State to score on its final six possessions on Saturday. The veteran group — which returned six starters from last season — was supposed to be the team’s strength. “We didn’t play with a reckless attitude,” Powe said. “We got lackadaisical and just didn’t finish. There hasn’t been any finger pointing. We all lost so there’s no reason to do that.” Ole Miss should get a lift from the return of senior defensive end Kentrell Lockett. The 6-foot-5, 260-pound team captain missed the opener because of a heart ailment, but was cleared to return to the field on Wednesday. He made 10 tackles for a loss and five sacks last season. “It’s going to be a big difference,” Powe said. “We’re glad to have him back. He knows the game and he’s a big part of what we do.” Senior safety Fon Ingram also returns after minor knee surgery three weeks ago. His experience should help fortify a pass defense that surrendered several big plays to

learning experience. Painful, but a tremendous learning experience.” The Rebels’ shocking loss has often been compared to when Appalachian State beat Michigan in 2007. That’s fine with Powe, who is quick to remind everyone that the Wolverines’ season wasn’t destroyed by one embarrassing loss. “People don’t talk about what happened afterwards with Michigan,” Powe said. “They went on to the Capital One Bowl and beat the mess out of Florida and Tim Tebow.”
Tulane coach Bob Toledo said he expects to encounter a very emotional Ole Miss team today. “They’re going to be upset and I know Houston will get his guys ready to play,” Toledo said. Powe said Nutt has stressed throughout the week that despite the embarrassment, all of the team’s postseason and conference goals are still intact. But the Rebels have to improve quickly. “The only good thing about this is it happened to us early,” Powe said.
Edwards takes pole for Richmond race RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Jeff Burton is one of five title contenders yet to visit Victory Lane this season. With one event remaining in NASCAR’s “regular season,” he has a clear game plan for tonight’s race at Richmond International Raceway. “I don’t believe that it is in your best interest to turn it off this weekend because in theory (the race) doesn’t count,” Burton said Friday. “I believe it is in our best interest to turn it up and be on kill when this race starts.” There were several strategies emerging Friday among the 10 drivers already locked into the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship field. With nothing to lose before the titledeciding format begins next weekend at New Hampshire, drivers have the rare opportunity to go for broke Satur-
On TV 6:30 p.m. ABC Air Guard 400 day night. Should a championship-contender end the night on top, he’ll pocket the final 10 bonus points available to be used in seeding the Chase field. For Jimmie Johnson and Denny Hamlin, the series leaders with five wins each, a victory would break the tie and make one of them the definitive top seed. Series points leader Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch, three-time winners this season, could cut their deficit to only 10 points. Everyone else could simply gain ground on the two leaders as they roll into the 10-race Chase. Like Burton, Jeff Gordon is
winless this season. Although he’s second in the standings, he’ll drop down to a tie for last with Burton, Carl Edwards, Matt Kenseth and, assuming he locks down the 12th playoff position, Clint Bowyer at the start of the Chase. Mired in a career-worst 54-race winless streak, Gordon wants that win Saturday night. “We’re just trying to get that all-important momentum and those bonus points going into the Chase,” Gordon said. “We’re sitting here with a great year so far, but definitely eager to get that win and trying to be patient about it.” For the first time since the 2004 inception of the Chase, there’s very little drama surrounding the 26th and final qualifying race. Only the final two positions remain
unclaimed, and Biffle needs only to finish 42nd to lock down his spot. Bowyer has more work to do, but can clinch the final spot by finishing 28th or better. Considering it’s a great track for Bowyer — his career-worst finish at Richmond was 18th in May, 2009 — he doesn’t have much to worry about Saturday night. He has a 117-point lead over 13th-place driver Ryan Newman. That lack of suspense surrounding the Chase field has raised speculation that Saturday night could shape up as a classic race. The “boys, have at it,” policy has already spurred aggressive racing this season, and the lack of consequences for 10 drivers could inspire a go-for-broke attitude. Harvick doesn’t subscribe to that theory.
PCA Continued from Page C1. Cody Grogan had 50 yards and a score. Four of the Flames’ five touchdowns were on runs of more than 40 yards, and they rolled up 336 yards total. Brinson scored on runs of 16, 71 and 45 yards, and he was barely touched on any of them. “My first touchdown run was all the offensive line. There was a hole you could drive a car through,” Brinson said. “I knew if we kept that up it was going to be a big night for us.” Defensively, the Flames (3-1, 1-0) often hit PCA’s ball carriers in the backfield and got into the face of quarterback Jonah Masterson as soon as he set up to throw.
PCA managed 51 yards of offense in the first half — just six of them on the ground. “We just got whupped up front. Every other play, we got whupped,” Weaver said. “We’ve just got to find some motivation.” PCA did get some things clicking in the second half. Peter Harris scored on a 1-yard run to cap a 14-play, six-minute drive at the start of the third quarter. Late in the fourth and deep in desperation mode, quarterback Jonah Masterson connected with his receivers on a series of screen passes to lead a pair of quick touchdown drives that kept hope alive. Masterson completed 19 of
30 passes for 196 yards and two touchdowns in the game. Chris Marshall caught eight balls for 88 yards, and Montana McDaniel rushed for 86 yards. McDaniel also caught three passes for 29 yards and a TD. For every good thing that happened, however, something went wrong. Masterson threw three interceptions, including one in the red zone when PCA trailed 23-7 late in the third quarter. After McDaniel took a swing pass 15 yards for a score to make it 30-13 with 2:06 to play in the fourth, the extra point was blocked. And, of course, University Christian kept pounding
away. Grogan broke a 42-yard TD run to put University Christian up 30-7 with 4:42 left, and Brinson added the clincher with his 45-yarder with 1:38 to go. PCA’s Steven Moore scored on a 22-yard TD pass two plays later — the teams combined for four touchdowns in the last five minutes — but the Flames recovered the onside kick and took a knee to end it. “I saw some people that had heart tonight. We have playmakers,” Weaver said. “But we have to have a team. We have to hold the fort instead of getting blitzkrieged.”
JACKSON — At first glance, Southern Miss didn’t appear to have much going for it during a 41-13 loss to South Carolina in the season opener. But after dissecting the game film from the lopsided loss, Golden Eagles quarterback Austin Davis said the team’s point total could skyrocket on Saturday when Southern Miss (0-1) hosts Prairie View (1-0) in Hattiesburg. The key is simple: Improving productivity in the red zone. “We moved the ball pretty well against South Carolina, but then we’d get to the red zone and things would bog down,” Davis said. “When you get close to the goal line, you have to pay attention to the details. But we’d make a mistake here or have a penalty there and then come away without anything.” The statistics from the South Carolina loss support Davis’ argument. Southern Miss gained a respectable 404 total yards against the Gamecocks, including 337 passing yards, but scored on only two of six trips inside South Carolina’s 20-yard line. “Our playmakers did not make plays, we turned the ball over and we didn’t do anything special in the special teams,” USM coach Larry
On the air 6 p.m. 103.3 FM Prairie View A&M at Southern Miss Fedora said. The Golden Eagles are also hoping for a better performance from star receiver DeAndre Brown. He caught four passes for 65 yards and a touchdown against South Carolina, but all of that production came late in the game after the Gamecocks had already built an insurmountable lead. During the game, Brown was visibly pouting on the field and on the sidelines. In Monday’s press conference, Fedora openly criticized Brown, saying the 6-foot-6, 239pound junior took plays off against South Carolina and wasn’t getting the most out of his ability. Even so, Davis says he doesn’t expect Brown to be a distraction. “There’s no question how good of a player DeAndre can be,” Davis said. “And I know he’s going to be that player. It’s not something that worries me at all.” Prairie View, which plays at the Football Championship Subdivision level, beat Texas Southern 16-14 in its season opener.
Trojans roll in first victory of the season From staff reports Running back Cody Landrem led Tallulah Academy with 235 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 28 carries in a 46-39 victory over Baton Rouge Christian. His first score was from a 2-yard run, and the second was from a 54-yard rush. Quarterback Hunter Windham contributed 126 rushing yards on 12 carries. He also threw for two touchdowns; one was 29-yard pass to Rafael Soldana, and the other was 20-yard pass to Josh Huffman. Both touchdown passes were thrown in the second quarter. In total, TA rushed for 303 yards.
Hinds AHS 22, Raymond 17 Running back Ledarion Robinson earned HAHS two touchdowns, both off of quick dashes. Javonte Robinson scored HAHS’s only other touchdown after catching a kick-off-return and running 85 yards to the end-zone.
prep football Central Hinds 42, Bowling Green 0 Hunter Farrior opened the game for Central Hinds with a 76-yard touchdown rush. In total, he rushed for 119 yards on 9 carries. Defensively, he had 13 solo tackles. Running back Jordan Currie ran for two touchdowns — one being a 71-yard rush, and the other a 9-yard rush. He also threw a 26-yard touchdown pass to Cody Parkman, and 16-yard touchdown pass to Pate DeMuth. Currie rushed five times for 91 yards.

Judge grants protection for DiCaprio A judge has granted Leonardo DiCaprio a three-year restraining order from a woman who he said claims to be his wife and carrying his baby. A Los Angeles judge granted the actor court protection from Livia Bistriceanu after a brief hearing Friday. Court filings state Bistriceanu traveled from Chicago to Los Angeles and acted Leonardo aggressively when she showed up at DiCaprio’s DiCaprio home and business offices recently. Bistriceanu, who has been twice placed on psychiatric hold, was notified of a temporary restraining order but did not appear in court. The Academy Award-nominated actor did not attend Friday’s hearing either. DiCaprio stated in court filings that he was frightened of the 41-year-old woman and that she presented a threat to his personal safety.
Ex-coach is instant ‘Survivor’ celebrity Jimmy Johnson has become a “Survivor” celebrity, even though he has yet to appear on the show.

Could you send her an autographed picture? Because she’s a huge “Survivor” fan.’ “That’s the typical response I’m getting.” The premiere is Wednesday, and the 67-year-old Johnson’s involvement has already received considerable attention since taping concluded this summer.

La. man angling for catfish lands shark A man fishing for catfish wound up landing a shark on the bank of Bayou Teche. Brian Yeller, 33, of Charenton, said that crabs had taken all but his last piece of bait, but that one got a strong tug. He said he realized it wasn’t a catfish when he saw a fin swirling in the water near the bank. Paul Cook, manager with the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries marine fisheries division, said sharks can handle low-salinity water, and it’s not uncommon for them to move up into the Teche this time of year. Yeller said he plans to mount the 25-pound bull shark.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Don’t expect a duet between Kanye West and Taylor Swift at the MTV Video Music Awards. Jesse Ignjatovic, the executive producer of Sunday’s show, flatly declared there’s no chance of the pair reuniting in song a year after West interrupted Swift’s acceptance speech for best female video to proclaim that Beyonce should have instead won the prize. Ignjatovic hopes that West, who’s slated to perform, won’t be interrupting anyone this time. “The beautiful thing about Kanye is he’s not one to repeat himself,” said Ignjatovic. The outspoken rapper took to his Twitter account last week to again apologize for last year’s on-air fiasco, acknowledging that he was wrong for lunging on stage at Radio City Music Hall and grabbing the microphone away from then-teen country crooner Swift, who’s again nominated for best female video but isn’t confirmed to attend this year’s show. “I am getting the feeling from him and his tweets over the last couple of days that he wants to get rid of that,” said bawdy late-night host Chelsea Handler, who is hosting the ceremony for the first time. “That is a good place for him to be. He should move on, so he can have something else to talk about.” West, who is readying his next album, has kept a lower profile since the incident and subsequent public backlash. His moment in the spotlight Sunday could provide the perfect opportunity to seek redemption from MTV viewers. In his series of tweets last week, he revealed that he wrote a song for Swift, and “if she won’t take it, then I’ll perform it for her.”
On TV The 2010 MTV Video Music Awards will be at 8 Sunday night on MTV.

Rapper Eminem will open Sunday’s Video Music Awards ceremony at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. “I hope that we move on from it,” said Ignjatovic. “It feels like it’s time. It was a year ago.” Producers have made no accommodations for a potential West ambush with this year’s stage, a space-age paradise inspired by mid-century modern architecture that’s almost completely open to the crowd. The sweeping stage design, dreamed up by German designer Florian Wieder, required about 2,000 orchestra seats to be removed from the Nokia Theatre. “It’s very accessible,” said Ignjatovic while peering at the set from the audience. Videos of nominees will blast on two giant screens envel-
oping the theater, as well as a massive rotating billboard rising up from a smaller oval stage. Deadmau5, the show’s house disc jockey, will perform from his trademark cube booth hoisted above the crowd. He’ll be joined by the likes of Robyn, Travie McCoy and Jason Derulo on a nearby curvy catwalk. “When the audience sees it for the first time, it’s going to look like no other show they’ve ever seen,” said MTV general manager Stephen Friedman. “I promise you that. Our team has transformed it. I’ve never seen a set quite like this in the history of the VMAs. The way that it’s configured enabled us to mold it to exactly the way
we wanted it.” Lady Gaga leads this year’s nominees with 13 nods behind the eight nominations for Eminem, who will open the ceremony. Other acts scheduled to perform include Drake, Mary J. Blige, Swizz Beatz, Bruno Mars, Florence and the Machine, Usher, Paramore, Linkin Park, B.o.B. and Justin Bieber, the teen sensation who is set to take his routine outside the theater. Ultimately, as with all VMAs, spectacle trumps substance. This is the show where Madonna swapped spit with Britney Spears, and Eminem fought a puppet. Whether an invitation to attend this year’s festivities is accepted by Swift or not, all eyes will certainly be on West. If he’s on his best behavior, what will everyone be talking about the next day? “In a million years, we couldn’t have predicted it last year,” said Friedman. “I think this year’s the same. We’ll have the guys from ‘Jackass,’ the cast from ‘Glee’ and some of the ‘True Blood’ cast there. I don’t know. What we try to do is bring the most entertaining talent and artists together, and that brew always creates fascinating moments for us.”
Yoko Ono installation seeks healing amid violence BERLIN (AP) — At the center of Yoko Ono’s new installation is a perfectly round bullet hole shot through a large pane of glass that John Lennon’s widow says challenges viewers to confront “incredible violence and abuse” in the world today. Titled “Das Gift” — a play on the word’s meaning in English, a present, and German, poison — the exhibit opened in Berlin Friday. The 77-yearold artist told The Associated Press she hoped it would force viewers to confront violence without losing hope. “I want all of us to understand what is going on in the world now, which is incredible violence and abuse,” Ono said. “Instead of just putting that reality under the rug and just forget about it, we have to face it.” The centerpiece of the installation is called simply “The Hole,” the oversized bullet hole in the window that Ono said she made with the idea of the violence that takes place daily around the world. “There are many, many holes in many, many windows in our world. And I was thinking about that,” Ono said. But it then took on a larger, more personal meaning as a tribute to her late

seven overcoats that were worn by people who were shot at point-blank range, and a wall where viewers’ shadows are projected and intermingle. There is also a series of German army helmets suspended from the ceiling and filled with pale-blue puzzle pieces — pieces of “sky” that viewers can take home with them. In an upstairs room, people are invited to smile into a computer fitted with a camera, allowing their happy images to be added to hundreds of others that Ono has collected in a database — some of which are flashed onto an adjacent wall. Ono said she wanted to show the installation in Berlin, where it runs at the Haunch of Venison gallery until Nov. 13, because the city’s turbulent history paralleled the turmoil that touched her own life. “I felt all the time that I was making this that people in Berlin would understand me,” Ono said. She said her ultimate aim is to spread a message of hope and peace. “There’s a dream of hope, and I think that this century that just started now, started very badly, but it is going to be very beautiful,” Ono said.
Study finds many not impressed with 3-D TV sets NEW YORK (AP) — A study about consumer attitudes toward 3-D television found many who were less interested in the technology after they actually experienced it. Still, 52 percent of consumers who tried out 3-D televisions said it was a better experience than they had expected, according to a study conducted by The Nielsen Co. for the Cable & Telecommunications Association for Marketing. The study was released Thursday. “There is a lot of interest in 3-D TV but there are barriers that you have to overcome to make it a successful experience,” said Char Beales, president and CEO of the association.

Fifty-seven percent of people surveyed cited the glasses as a reason they were not likely to buy a set. Nearly nine in 10 people worry that it will constrain them from multitasking while the TV is on, the survey said. It suggests that the true breakthrough for the technology won’t come until sets are developed that allow 3-D viewing without the glasses, Beales said. The percentage of people who said they were interested in buying a 3-D set during the
next year went down when these willing consumers were brought in to see how it worked, Nielsen said. People are also concerned there is not enough 3-D programming available yet to make a purchase worthwhile. More than three-quarters of people surveyed said 3-D viewing is best-suited to special events like sports or movies than regular TV viewing, the survey said. Seven in 10 regular gamers expressed interest in playing games in 3-D, Nielsen said. Nielsen conducted focus groups and a survey of 425

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — You’re likely to be happiest spending your time on arrangements or projects you personally direct. Instead of waiting for someone to tell you what to do, take control yourself. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Wait until the other guy makes the first move when it comes to negotiating something. You’ll know right away where things stand, and you will better comprehend what you’re dealing with. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — It doesn’t have to be just a so-so day. Plan something serene and special to do with someone who means a lot to you, and you can turn it into a memorable time. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — There is little need to be fearful of challenging conditions. In fact, they could bring out the smarts you didn’t know you possessed, to overcome opposition and/or remove impediments. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Even though you might not be aware of it, you could have more than a few admirers observing you. This favorable impression will occur from just simply being yourself. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — In situations where you are more motivated to achieve something than others might be, you’ll easily come out the winner. Be single-minded and keep your eyes focused on the target. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Your successes can be considerably enhanced simply by treating others as you would wish to be treated. It’s an old method, but it always works out to be an advantage. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Don’t think you have to live with something that has been unproductive for far too long. Use your smarts and ingenuity to make whatever changes are called for to improve matters. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — If you care enough to be an astute observer, you can learn something about handling abrasive issues. Once you see how easy it is to be a diplomat, you’ll never resort to a negative response again. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Even though this might be a day of rest, you won’t be content with failing to utilize your time and talents productively. Plan to tackle a project or to be of service to someone who needs help. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Even if you have to take it upon yourself to make plans for the entire family, do it. Others are looking to have some fun and to do something different, but they don’t have the imagination to come up with the ideas. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — The bargains are out there if you’re inclined to go shopping, and you should be able to make some good buys. If nothing more, hitting the retail outlets could prove to be fun.
TWEEN 12 & 20
BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: I know this is not too smart of a question, but I sure would like to know the answer. What is the difference between a cold and the flu? And what are the symptoms of each? I’d also like to know any other difference between the two. And why can a person get a flu shot to combat catching the flu, yet no shots are available to ward off a cold? — Emma, Porterville, Calif. Emma: You ask very intelligent questions, but I have no answers for most of them. But I did contact the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta, which sent me plenty of information on colds and the flu. Colds are caused by five groups of viruses and there could be dozens of strains within each group. That is the reason researchers can’t discover a vaccine to keep you from catching a cold. Colds are transmitted by direct contact. It is extremely important to wash your hands after touching someone who has a cold or anything a cold sufferer has touched. It is also imperative to keep your hands away from your eyes and nose. Cold symptoms develop one to three days after the virus enters the body, and the cold lasts about a week. Symptoms include runny or stuffed-up nose, sneezing, cough and scratchy throat. Flu is caused by a type A, B or C virus. By watching carefully what strains emerge in other parts of the world, scientists can predict which types and subtypes will predominate here each year, and then concoct a vaccine accordingly. That’s why a flu shot can be effective. The flu viruses spread through the air, most often when a flu victim speaks, coughs or sneezes. Flu symptoms usually come on quickly and can last a week or more. Symptoms include chills, fever of 101 degrees or higher, aching muscles, headache, sore throat and cough. The better physical condition a person is in, the less the chance of catching either a cold or flu. But once a person gets the bug, nothing but time will get rid of it. Many over-the-counter and prescription drugs can make you feel better, but at best they’ll only shorten your period of misery. They will not “cure” the illness. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service. E-mail him at rwallace@Copley News Service.
pay for your own cell phone. Dear Abby: My father went to prison when I was 2 months old. My mother and maternal grandparents made sure I had a relationship with him through phone calls and letters. They told me early on what he did, and I have worked through it. After 22 years and eight parole hearings, my father has been granted a parole. He will be home with my paternal grandparents in October. I’m happy and excited, but he’s trying to make up for lost time. He has a son who wants nothing to do with any of us, so it’s all left to me. He said, “Your mother had you for the first 22 holidays. I get the next 22,” and he expects
me to spend the entire first week he’s home at my grandparents’ house with him. I am very close to my mom and younger siblings. I love our holiday traditions and don’t want to give any of that up. Furthermore, I’m not comfortable staying at my grandparents’ home. I don’t know them well, and I don’t sleep well in strange places. I work full time, go to school and have my own house with my fiance. I think my father wants more than I am ready to give right now. What do I do? — Feeling Anxious in Michigan Dear Anxious: Your father is starved for family, which is understandable, but he has overlooked the fact that
rebuilding a relationship can’t be done on a seven-day timetable. What you need to do is tell him that he is demanding more than you are ready, able and comfortable giving — and you would prefer to get to know him at your own pace. And stand by that, or he may devour you as he tries to make up for all the years
he has wasted because of his mistakes. Frankly, I think his demand is presumptuous, and I’m glad you wrote.

Cluster-headache sufferer offers medicine advice Dear Dr. Gott: I am 80 years old and have spent some 40 years in radiology as an X-ray technologist. Now that I’m retired, living in Pennsylvania, I write adult and children’s books. When I was 19 years old, I developed cluster headaches that, at times, became unbearable. I presented all the classic symptoms. Our radiology office was located in a professional building, along with 40 other specialists. At the time, I became a guinea pig. I had everything from Novocain injections into my cervical nerve to histamine injections in my arm, all to no avail. I tried all the known remedies available at the time. My agony lasted until I was about 33 years old. My episodes were predictable. Every day, they lasted from one minute to several hours, for over a period of six months. Then, just as rapidly as they appeared, they vanished for six months. Then, as luck would have it, while reading a medical magazine, I spotted an ad from a pharmaceutical company advertising a brand-new drug called Sansert, which I believe is now off the market. I asked the radiologist I worked for if he would please contact the company and ask for samples, which he did, knowing that everything else I had tried had failed. Already in the throes of a cycle, I took the pills according to directions without success. After a period of calm between cycles, I was prepared to make another attempt. Typically, the cycle of pain would ensue and build in crescendo, until reaching its pinnacle, after which it would act in just the opposite manner until I was pain-free; usually all within a minute. Only this time, as soon as the pain started, I popped a pill and did so for one full week, after which I began to notice that the excruciating pain began to abort and then lessen, finally disappearing completely. Then I skipped a cycle, only to become disappointed when it once again returned. After a period of remission, the pain returned. I immediately began taking the Sansert again with success. After that last bout, at age 33, until this day, I have not had another recurrence. Dear Reader: To my understanding, Sansert is no longer available in the United States but is still available in other countries. It carries some serious side effects, and this is likely why the United States chose to remove it from the market. Sansert is chemically similar to lysergic acid diethylamide, a well-known, potent hallucinogenic that has been purported to relieve the pain of cluster headaches and migraines. To my knowledge, no legitimate research has been done on this subject. I discourage everyone from trying LSD as a treatment because it is an illegal substance that carries stiff legal penalties, not to mention the potentially serious side effects that may last for years in some people.
ASK THE DOCTOR Dr. PETER
I bring the similarities of these two substances up only because Sansert carries the side effects of mood changes, hallucinations, delusions and more that are also associated with LSD. While I am happy to hear that you have success with this drug, there are safer options available. Unfortunately, Sansert has too many strikes against it for me to feel comfortable recommending it to others. I suggest anyone suffering from cluster headaches be under the care of a neurologist familiar with the condition.

Beautiful Bride event will mimic real wedding day By Manivanh Chanprasith email@example.com The annual Beautiful Bride expo at the Vicksburg Convention Center is back for an eighth year — with a twist. “We’re doing a different approach,” said VCC special events coordinator Sue Bagby. “Rather than have a typical bridal show, we’re going to have brides come in and be escorted to a wedding
If you go Beautiful Bride will be from 5 to 8 p.m. Sept. 18 at the Vicksburg Convention Center. Admission is free for brides and $15 for guests. Brides can register by calling Sue Bagby at 601630-2929 or visiting www.vccmeet.com. ceremony and a reception.” She said the event, set for next Saturday, Sept. 18., will give brides a firsthand look into how their wedding day could look. The convention
center will be decorated to mimic a wedding ceremony, followed by a reception with all the trimmings, Bagby said. However, the new concept,
Bagby said, will cut the variety of vendors. “There won’t be as many vendors as last year, but there will be local vendors on hand to meet and greet with guests,” she said. Local vendors include Uptown Florist, To Friends invitation printing company, Body Shop, King of Hearts, Lasting Impressions, Joyful Design, Angelic Creations, Bella la Vita photography
City native wins Emmy for MPB program
Stones again at their peak in rerelease
By Manivanh Chanprasith firstname.lastname@example.org
By Chris LeHourites The Associated Press LONDON — The Rolling Stones have hit their peak again in 2010, this time in the form of a rarely seen rereleased movie of a 1972 concert. “Ladies and Gentlemen ... The Rolling Stones” was originally released in late 1973 in Britain, but the film was not widely shown. The digitally remastered version, which made its global premiere on Tuesday in London, shows the Stones at their best, belting out classics like “Brown Sugar,” “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” and “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” along with “new” songs like “Tumbling Dice,” Sweet Virginia” and “Rip This Joint.” The latter songs were all on the 1972 album “Exile on Main St.,” which was also remastered and rereleased this year to great acclaim. None of the current Rolling Stones members that are in the movie — Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Charlie Watts — made it for the premiere, but former bassist Bill Wyman was in attendance. Wyman was with the band for 30 years but quit in 1992 to explore other musical opportunities. Although Jagger wasn’t there, a short interview with the lead singer was played on screen before the movie began. “Everyone’s very together and on,” Jagger said in the interview, which was recorded about six weeks ago in London. “I can remember the Rolling Stones being a very, kind of, lackadaisical, very sloppy band on stage. But this was obviously not the case on this day.” The 1972 tour was the Stones at their peak, or at least at the tail end of it. The five-year period leading up to that year is generally regarded as the band’s prime. From “Beggars Banquet” in 1968 through “Let It Bleed” in ’69 and “Sticky Fingers” in ’71, the Stones were the ultimate rock ’n’ roll band, playing hard and partying harder. The movie, pieced together from several different concerts played in Texas, was digitally See Stones, Page D3.
and Palmertree Catering, as well as the convention center, which is available for weddings and receptions. “I’m hoping this will be better for the brides, as well as for the vendors,” Bagby said. Beautiful Bride will run from 5 to 8 p.m. Admission is free for brides, and registration can be conducted at www.vccmeet.com. Others must pay $15 per person.
the Oxford campus. Writers and photographers get paid, but not much, Bonner said. He said the other national blues magazine is Blues Revue which, according to its website, this month began celebrating its 20th year in business. Blues historian Jim O’Neal, one of Living Blues’ founders, said he and a few others borrowed $300 from Bob Koester, owner of Chicago’s Jazz Record Mart, to get started. The record store was an information center for blues lovers. The concept was to publicize music that had been popular in Chicago nightclubs in black communities, said Bruce Iglauer, another magazine founder who is also founder and president of Alligator Records. Iglauer had just moved from Wisconsin to Chicago to be near the blues scene and he worked at Jazz Record Mart. “The first meetings were at my little apartment,” Iglauer said. “We had this passion for blues and we were frustrated because there were British blues magazines and
A Vicksburg native has been honored for his role in a Mississippi Public Broadcasting documentary. John Lanford, MPB’s chief of videography, and his team of five won a 2010 Southeast Regional Emmy for “The Gulf Islands: Mississippi’s Wilderness Shore,” broadcast in 2009. “It’s nice to have this recognition,” said Lanford, 45, the documentary’s co-producer and photographer. “It’s affirming of your work.” The documentary won the Outstanding Achievement in Television Crafts Achievement Excellence award in the category of Photographer-Program (Non-News)/Short Form, and was nominated for the Outstanding Achievement in Television Programming Excellence award in John the catLanford egory of Documentary-Historical. Winners were recognized at a June 26 gala in Atlanta. “MPB is thrilled to have been recognized with these nominations and win, and will continue the same high quality of programming,” MPB Executive Director Judy Lewis said in a statement. “I am very proud of our staff that works so hard and truly deserves this high honor.” Filmed and aired nationwide last year, the documentary focused on Mississippi’s barrier islands, which are part of the Gulf Islands National Seashore that spans more than 160 miles to Okaloosa Island near Fort Walton, Fla. The barrier islands in Mississippi are Cat, East and West Ship, Horn and Petit Bois, plus the Davis Bayou area in Ocean Springs. The documentary, available online at www. mpbonline.org, was used as a supplement to Ken Burns’ “The National Parks: America’s Best Idea,” also aired in 2009, Lanford said. Lanford, a 1983 graduate of Warren Central High School, studied radio, TV and film at the University of Southern Mississippi.

Living Blues editor Brett Bonner stands next to a Blues Trail Marker at the University of Mississippi.
Ole Miss-based magazine still beltin’it out By Shelia Byrd The Associated Press OXFORD — As the Vietnam War raged and rock ’n’ roll reeled from the breakup of the Beatles, a ragtag group of enthusiasts put out the first edition of what they hoped would become a showcase magazine for the blues music they loved. The 1970 debut issue of Living Blues was peddled at a popular Chicago record store, at nightclubs and from the trunks of cars. Living Blues, now owned by the University of Mississippi, is the country’s oldest magazine dedicated to the genre. Its current 40th anniversary issue features images from more than 90 past covers, including some of the biggest names in the business. The magazine, published every two months, has an international distribution and circulation of more than 25,000. Many fans are hardcore traditionalists who like their blues tinged with the grit born of the Delta region. Brett Bonner, the magazine’s fifth editor in four decades, attributes its longevity to a formula from which it rarely strays: allowing the artists to describe how their culture drives the music.

tive newcomer like Marquise Knox. “We’re far more interested in telling the life story of a musician, the culture that created him, than we are in telling the kind of guitar that he plays or the strings that he uses,” Bonner said. “People who don’t live in Mississippi are fascinated with the culture.” Blues music arose under the South’s plantation system, fueled by the pov-
erty-plagued existence of many of the early black artists who sang about their condition. In the magazine’s first quarterly issue in 1970, Howlin’ Wolf said he chose to play the music because, “I never could make no money on nothin’ but the blues.” Bonner and the writers travel across the country and abroad, but it’s a skeletal crew.

The DVD and Blu-ray versions are set to be released in October, according to Eagle Rock Entertainment chief operating officer Geoff Kempin. The Stones also released “Stones in Exile” this year, a documentary about the making of “Exile on Main St.” “(Jagger is) very strategic about where and when he wants stuff released,” Kempin said. The movie opens with a black screen and some background noise. Soon, though, the lights come on and Watts starts banging on his drums as the band breaks into “Brown Sugar.” Throughout the movie, the clothes change as the concert footage switches from show to show, but the music remains crisp and tight. Before they start playing “Midnight Rambler,” Jagger personifies the attitude of the band at the time by taking a couple of swigs from a
big bottle of Jack Daniel’s whiskey. The footage also harkens back to the days when playing concerts was more intimate for the band because the stage was so small, especially compared to later tours when Jagger would constantly be on the move, sometimes even running through the crowd with security guards all around him. “We were really close together, super close together,” Jagger said. And with no additional vocals and only some keyboards and percussion in support, the sound was more raw. “I haven’t heard the Stones singing without backing vocals for years,” said Mike Griffiths, a 59-year-old television director and longtime fan. “It took me back.” The movie features 15 songs without interruption, finishing off with “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” and “Street Fighting Man.” “It was,” Jagger said, “a good choice of songs.”
Blues Continued from Page D1. French and Swedish magazines, and here in the home of the blues, there was no magazine.” O’Neal recalled that Iglauer once told him, “In five years, we would have published all the information people would need to know about blues and that would be it.” Four decades later finances are still an issue, said Bonner, but that hasn’t stopped the presses. Ever since the magazine was acquired by the university in 1983 for $1 from O’Neal and his then-wife, Amy, it’s been classified a not-for-profit entity. O’Neal, who lives in Kansas City, said he decided to transfer the magazine to the university after talking with Vicksburg native Bill Ferris, who was director of the university’s Center for the Study of Southern Culture. O’Neal said he recognized the potential of the magazine at Ole Miss. But there was another motivation: The magazine would be housed on a campus where a landmark civil rights battle was fought when the first black student, James Meredith, enrolled in 1962. “Just because of the history of racial tension at Ole Miss, I thought that it would be an important statement if the university could publish a magazine about African-American music and show how much things were changing in Mississippi,”
O’Neal said. For many blues artists, who often live from hand-tomouth waiting on the next gig, being on the cover on Living Blues is like a rock star’s dream of being on the cover of Rolling Stone. Singer Bobby Rush said Living Blues was the first to support him as he tried to cross over to white audiences. “Living Blues was one of the few that embraced me as a blues legend. Many men like myself had to cut records for white people, and then cut another kind for black people. I didn’t do that,” Rush said. Charlie Musselwhite, a Sonoma County, Calif., bluesman who was born in Kosciusko, Miss., said he’s never been on the cover of Living Blues, but doesn’t feel slighted. Musselwhite, who is white, said the publication dubs itself “the magazine of the African-American blues tradition.” Musselwhite, 66, said he’s collected every issue. “I’ve got them in boxes. I just can’t seem to throw them away,” Musselwhite said. “I’m just real happy for them that they’ve stayed in business all these years. Other blues magazines have folded. It’s preserving an important history of an American art form. You can’t find that information hardly anywhere else.”

MATTHEWS, N.C. (AP) — For 17-year-old Lizzie Guest, the TV show “Glee” was a lifechanger, so when she heard about a summer camp based off the hit, she just had to enroll. And given a chance for an encore, she signed up again. The Charlotte Academy of Music’s first Glee Camp in June sparked so much interest from students eager to replicate what they saw on TV, the academy added a second camp, plus created a Glee Club that started practicing last week. The camp was among a handful across the country that rode the wave of “Glee” popularity to create a show choir comeback. At the Charlotte-area camp, 12- to 17-year-olds spent their days in an orange room with brown curtains that blocked the sunshine, learning to sing, twirl and march in sync. “It was just the most fun
“Glee,” Fox’s hit freshman musical-dramedy, scored 19 Emmy nominations, the most of any series this year. in the world,” said Guest, of Huntersville. “When I was younger, it was uncool to be in choir and show choir and all that kind of stuff, but now they see these people who are doing this, and they’re sounding amazing. ... It’s making people think that this is actually acceptable, and it’s not just acceptable, it’s awesome. People who are talented are now cool.” “Glee,” Fox’s hit freshman musical-dramedy, scored 19 Emmy nominations, the most of any series this year. It won four, including best supporting actress and directing for a comedy series. “We’re riding that wave right now,” said Regina Ziliani, director of the 2-year-old academy, which offers private music and voice lessons,
partly to fill in musical gaps in schools. “Everybody is just obsessed with ‘Glee.’” But its popularity comes as budget cuts prompt schools to further shrink their musical offerings for students. Nonprofit community arts providers, many of which partner with local schools, also have been forced to reduce their offerings, cut staff and offer less financial aid amid the recession, according to the National Guild for Community Arts Education’s May 2009 survey of its members. “With shows like ‘Glee’ returning this fall, kids are going back to school with a greater desire to make music,” said Scott Robertson, spokesman for California-based National Association of Music Merchants. “Many schools
across the country continue to reduce music and arts education or cut music programs altogether. Yet, according to our latest research, kids want more than ever to learn how to play instruments, join the glee club, or perform in school musicals.” That’s fueled not only by “Glee,” he said, but also other music-making TV shows such as “iCarly,” ‘’Big Time Rush” and the “Camp Rock” movies. It’s difficult to measure the current popularity of glee camps and clubs, with officials at national music and camp organizations saying they haven’t tracked it. But the number of accredited performing arts camps was already on the rise before the first season of “Glee” aired a year ago, from 527 in 2001 to 804 in 2007, according to the Indiana-based American Camp Association.
