County approves Riverwalk tax refund By Danny Barrett Jr. dbarrett@vicksburgpost.com

Chamber ekes out with closest score There were no perfect scores this week but seven people missed only one game. Terrance Chambers of Vicksburg came closest to the total in the highscoring Alabama-Duke game and is the latest winner. Others who missed only one game were John W. Turner Jr., Tina Swilley, Harold Rowan, Gordon E. Cordes, Jeff White and Catherine Pittman. The Vicksburg Post’s annual Pick the Winner contest continues this week with the games and an entry blank for this week’s showdowns appearing on Page B3.

Riverwalk Casino stands to be refunded more than $110,000 from taxes paid on its local holdings if legal advisers agree to a settlement OK’d Monday by Warren County supervisors. Values on the Warrenton Road facility’s land and inventory will hit the books at $50,401,990 — more than 35 percent less than originally rec-

ommended by the Tax Assessor’s Office. In its appeal, the company argued for a $30.7 million total value and claimed the county didn’t follow state-set criteria for gaming venues of comparable size. The lower valuation translates into a tax liability of $926,968.20, an amount Tax Assessor Richard Holland said was determined on the basis of the casino’s smaller size compared to neighboring Rainbow Casino and DiamondJacks Casino

farther upriver and Riverwalk’s parking garage and hotel. “We feel the true value is equitable compared to those properties,” Holland said. Riverwalk paid $1,037,504.32 in real and personal property taxes for 2009, plus another $12,813.99 in penalties, all based on the higher tax assessment. The casino expects the resulting $110,536.12 overpayment to be

By the numbers • Original true value calculation: $78,172,733 • True value calculation agreed upon by supervisors: $50,401,990 • Taxes paid based on initial calculation: $1,037,504.32 • Tax liability based on $926,968.20

Body in Edwards ID’d as Clinton woman From staff and AP reports

The numbers are in line with other research and aren’t surprising, said Dr. Kevin Schulman, a professor of medicine and health economist at Duke University who wasn’t involved in the new report. Two-thirds of Americans are either overweight or obese, and childhood obesity has tripled in the past three decades. Nearly 18 percent of adolescents now are obese, facing a future of diabetes, heart disease and other ailments. Looking at the price tag may help policymakers weigh the value of spending

The body of a woman discovered Friday on a farm near Edwards has been identified as Ethel Winstead Simpson of Clinton, Hinds County Coroner Sharon Grisham-Stewart said. Simpson, who was 81, died from blows to her head and neck, an autopsy revealed. Ethel Winstead Simpson Her body was dumped near a hog farm on Mississippi 22 and partially covered by a large plastic container where James Cobb it was Hutto III found by Edwards police after being alerted by the farm’s owner. Simpson’s dental records were used to confirm the identity of the body Monday, a week after she had last been seen with a convicted sex offender, James Cobb Hutto III, 39, of Alabama. Simpson befriended Hutto on the walking track at Baptist Healthplex in Clinton. Hinds County Sheriff Malcolm McMillin said Hutto was a predator looking for a vulnerable victim and told Simpson he was battling cancer and had no family. “He may have heard her in conversation,” McMillin said. “He may have observed her in the past and said that might be a sympathetic ear to a story he was to tell.” Later on that Monday, Simpson and Hutto drove together to Vicksburg, where security cameras at Riverwalk Casino recorded them leaving at 11:40 p.m. Hutto was arrested Friday on an unrelated charge in Lee County, Ala., where he is accused of attempted murder and robbery. He was driving Simpson’s Mercedes-Benz when stopped. McMillin said he will send investigators to the Lee County Detention Center to speak with

The first official day of autumn this year is Sept,. 23, Thursday.

Municipal court fees, fines expected to increase By Steve Sanoski ssanoski@vicksburgpost.com Municipal Court Judge Nancy Thomas and her staff likely will increase court fees and some fines in the coming weeks, following approval Monday by the Vicksburg Board of Mayor and Aldermen. Thomas said the current ordinance that lists municipal court costs is outdated and includes only a $1 court fee for misdemeanor convictions other than traffic violations, public drunkenness,

‘We’re just going to have to sit down to decide what is fair and realistic. I don’t know how long it will take.’ Nancy thomas Municipal judge

illegal drug and alcohol possession. The new list of court fees will include specific charges for additional crimes and court requests. “We’re just going to have to sit down to decide what is fair and realistic,” said Thomas, a former city attor-

ney who was appointed to the bench by the Board of Mayor and Aldermen last year. “I don’t know how long it will take.” In Mayor Paul Winfield’s absence, North Ward Aldermen Michael Mayfield and South Ward Alderman Sid

Beauman approved a change to the city ordinance that formerly spelled out court fees. The ordinance now will allow the judge to change fees by a court order instead of an ordinance change, and it will require local fees are in accordance with state statutes. City Attorney Lee Davis Thames Jr. said all of the court’s fees are likely to be raised. “(Our) figures are less than what is allowable by state See City, Page A7.

THE PRICE OF OBESITY

Women pay more than men for extra pounds By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Obesity puts a drag on the wallet as well as health, especially for women. Doctors have long known that medical bills are higher for the obese, but that’s only a portion of the real-life costs. George Washington University researchers added in things like employee sick days, lost productivity, even the need for extra gasoline — and found the annual cost of being obese is $4,879 for a woman and $2,646 for a man. That’s far more than the cost of being merely overweight — $524 for women

The annual cost of being obese is $4,879 for a woman and $2,646 for a man. and $432 for men, concluded the report being released Tuesday, which analyzed previously published studies to come up with a total. Why the difference between the sexes? Studies suggest larger women earn less than skinnier women, while wages don’t differ when men pack on the pounds. That was a big surprise, said study co-author and health policy professor Christine Ferguson.

Researchers had expected everybody’s wages to suffer with obesity, but “this indicates you’re not that disadvantaged as a guy, from a wage perspective,” said Ferguson, who plans to study why. Then consider that obesity is linked to earlier death. While that’s not something people usually consider a pocketbook issue, the report did average in the economic value of lost life. That brought women’s annual obesity costs up to $8,365, and men’s to $6,518. The report was financed by one of the manufacturers of gastric banding, a type of obesity surgery.

NEW FALL TOMS!

www.riveroutfitters.net

JACKSON (AP) — A man who pleaded guilty to threatening to assassinate Barack Obama in 2009 has asked a federal appeals court to overturn his sentence. The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has arguments scheduled for Nov. 2 in New Orleans on the appeal from Steven Joseph Christopher. Christopher admitted to threatening Obama on the Internet on Jan. 11 and 15, 2009, on the website www. alien-earth.org. Christopher, however, contends he was just trying to get word out about the apocalypse. Christopher was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Henry Wingate last November on one count to 33 months in prison and two years of supervised release. Christopher has asked the 5th Circuit for a new sentencing hearing. At his sentencing, Christopher told Wingate that he made the threats to draw attention to himself to get out his message that he is the messiah, the second coming of Christ and that the world will be destroyed in 2012, except for Australia. Prosecutors said Christopher made the threats in a chat forum. He was arrested in Brookhaven. In his appeal, Christopher argued the judge did not follow federal sentencing guidelines and his sentence was more harsh for that reason. Christopher said Wingate found he had made multiple threats although Christopher only pleaded guilty to one, and the judge took into consideration comments Christopher posted on the Internet for which he was not indicted. Prosecutors countered that the court was not prohibited from considering subsequent threats made by the defendant after he was indicted.

MDOC not seeking budget increase Corps going forward with plans Commissioner says population has stopped increasing By Shelia Byrd The Associated Press JACKSON — Mississippi’s prisons chief said the state’s inmate population has quit increasing, and he’s not seeking a boost in state general funding next fiscal year. Mississippi Department of Corrections Commissioner Chris Epps told the Joint Legislative Budget Committee on Monday that the state currently has about 20,000 inmates in custody. “We’ve leveled off. We’re taking in as many as coming off,” said Epps, who made his presentation during the first day of budget hearings.

‘We’ve leveled off. We’re taking in as many as coming off.’ Chris Epps

MDOC commissioner Epps requested about $5,000 less in general funding for the budget year that begins next July 1. He only asked lawmakers to increase his authority to spend an additional $3 million that will be generated from fees associated with supervising inmates once they’re released from prison. Epps’ budget request was $335.2 million. Several agencies made the

annual pitch to the committee, including the state Personnel Board, the Attorney General’s Office and the Department of Insurance. Lt. Gov. Phil Bryant said most of the agencies made modest budget requests. Lawmakers said that wasn’t surprising, given the state’s sluggish economy in recent years. Last fiscal year, Gov. Haley Barbour had to cut to slash more than $400 million from the state’s budget because revenue collections failed to meet projections. The hearings are the first step in drafting a spending plan for the next budget year.

Insurance chief Chaney rejects Allstate hike JACKSON (AP) — State Insurance Commissioner Mike Chaney has rejected Allstate Property and Casualty Insurance Co.’s request for a statewide rate hike of 44 percent. Chaney said the company failed to justify its rate request and has filed requests for high increases since Katrina in 2005, possibly as a way to price itself out of the Mississippi market. Allstate requested the rate

hike in March, after Chaney had rejected the company’s request for a 65 percent increase. “We have worked very hard, very diligently, very openly and very honestly with Allstate on this rate increase,” Chaney said Monday. “However, I will not approve a 44 percent rate increase for Allstate without a court order.” Allstate spokeswoman April Eaton said the company is

“disappointed” by Chaney’s decision. Allstate has 30 days, until Oct. 20, to request a hearing challenging the Department’s denial of the rate increase. Chaney had been reviewing Allstate’s rate request since April. The company asked for an average statewide increase of 44.4 percent several months after Chaney rejected a 65 percent hike.

Martin Case, BC-HIS, ACA Board Certified, Hearing Instrument Specialist Nu-Way Hearing Service How long does the battery last on a hearing aid?

Answer: The batteries come in different sizes as do the strengths of the hearing aids. Sometimes a bad pack of batteries may give shorter life between changes or a buildup on the contact points inside the hearing aid can do the same. If you feel you are using too many batteries, call our office for a complimentary hearing aid checkup and FREE batteries to know for sure. Our number is 601-636-2269.

William E. Johnston, M.D. Family Medicine - General Practice Mission Primary Care Clinic What should I do if I think my child has ADHD

Answer: Talk with your child's doctor. A diagnosis of ADHD can be made only by getting information about your child's behavior from several people who know your child. Your doctor will ask you questions and may want to get information from your child's teachers or anyone else who is familiar with your child's behavior. Your doctor may have forms or checklists that you and your child's teacher can fill out. This will help you and your doctor compare your child's behavior with other children's behavior. Your doctor will do vision and hearing tests if these tests haven't been done recently.

Dr. Paul D. Murry Chiropractic Physician River City Chiropractic Clinic, LLC Do chiropractors treat headaches? Answer: Yes. Most headaches are occasional and fleeting, but over 45 million Americans experience chronic, recurring headaches. About nine out of ten headaches can be classified as tension headaches, which are usually characterized by a dull, squeezing or pressure kind of pain around the whole head. Tension headaches may be episodic or chronic (occurring 15 or more days a month). It is believed that tension headaches are linked to muscle contraction, and that tightness in the neck or shoulders (resulting from stress or bad posture) radiates to the head to cause the pain. Chiropractic can help to treat these causative factors, resulting in headache relief. A thorough examination should be performed to determine the cause of your headaches to rule out other serious conditions before treatment begins.

I’ve been taking a medication for two weeks, and it doesn’t seem to be working. Can I stop taking it?

How often should I replace my toothbrush?

My child recently had an ear infection, what about fluid that stays in the middle ear?

Answer: It’s important to keep in mind that different medications take different amounts of time to produce results. Some medications may produce immediate results, while others produce their effects more gradually. For example, many antidepressants may take up to 12 weeks to produce noticeable results. Certain medications may be working even though you do not “feel” any different. For instance, high blood pressure has no symptoms; it is a “silent” disease. Therefore, people can’t tell if the blood pressure-lowering medication has improved their condition. The only way to evaluate how the medication is working is by having a blood pressure reading done by a health care professional. With some medications, a blood test may be necessary to see if the medicine is doing its job. Do not stop any medications without first consulting your physician. And do contact your doctor or pharmacist with any questions about your medication.

Answer: You should replace your toothbrush every three or four months, or sooner if the bristles become frayed. Select a toothbrush that is comfortable in your mouth and use it twice a day. You may want to try a powered toothbrush. It may be more effective and easier to use especially for people with dexterity limitation.

Answer: Your child's hearing may be affected if fluid stays in the middle ear after an infection. This is called otitis media with effusion. (Effusion is another word for fluid buildup.) Usually the fluid goes away in two to three months, and hearing returns to normal. Your doctor may want to check your child again at this time to see if fluid is still present. If the fluid stays for more than a few months, your doctor may want to check your child's hearing. Your doctor may recommend ear tubes (also called tympanostomy tubes) to drain the fluid. Ear tubes may also decrease the number of ear infections your child gets.

OUR OPINION

30 YEARS AGO: 1980

Stimulus

Warren Central Future Farmers of America members establish the Billy Wayne Armond FFA Scholarship Fund in memory of their 15-year-old friend who drowned. • Fannie Peeples is honored by members of the Green Hills Garden Club who dedicate their 1980-81 yearbook to her. • Joy Traxler celebrates her fifth birthday.

Reduce taxes, spending and regulations

Residents of Cary, population 428, pitch in to make street signs since the city can’t afford to buy them. • If Congress does not approve a continuing resolution on the federal budget, two Corps of Engineers operations in Vicksburg will have to send more than 2,000 employees home. • French policeman Jean-Marc Guidoni comes here to study how police in a small town are fighting drugs.

The stimulus proposals that President Obama announced this week are a curious stew. It’s possible the administration finally realizes that taxes have economic consequences. But the proposals may be too little to stimulate reticent businesses, which are wary of expanding because of tax landmines that lie ahead and because they’re afraid of unknown costs buried in health reform and other legislation. Then there’s this: Obama’s proposed fixes are unlikely to be passed by Congress because it will adjourn within weeks so politicians can hit the campaign trail. Enactment could be months away, if ever. One of Obama’s proposals would allow businesses to more quickly write off 100 percent of new investments in plants and equipment through 2011. In theory, that would spur business

spending. The administration estimates accelerated tax write-offs will cut taxes by almost $200 billion. But will they spur the desired economic activity? Businesses already have access to loans at nearly record-low interest rates but aren’t borrowing for new expansion. Banks are flush with cash but aren’t making many loans. The prime culprit is the uncertainty the Obama administration has introduced into a sagging economy. Should the Bush tax cuts expire in January, for example, the so-called “wealthy” will be hit with a $921 billion cumulative tax hike. Many of those taxpayers own profitable small businesses. Unless Congress extends the Bush tax cuts, those businesses will be squeezed — and expansion and investment won’t be high on their to-do lists.

20 YEARS AGO: 1990

The president’s other proposals would expand research and experimentation tax credits and spend another $50 billion on building roads, railways and runways. The tax credits are long overdue, but are not our favorite way to treat taxpayers. Rather than temporarily bribing them by letting them keep some of what they pay the government, taxes on businesses should be eliminated across the board. As for the $50 billion in infrastructure spending, we doubt it will have much impact. The previous $814 billion stimulus package certainly didn’t. What the administration and Congress should do is reduce taxes, reduce government spending and ease off costly regulations that impede economic recovery.

10 YEARS AGO: 2000 Bryant Lamont Williams Jr. celebrates his first birthday. • Robin Lumbley is elected president of the Student Council at Porters Chapel Academy. • A series of wrecks on the Mississippi River bridge here send nine people to the hospital.

MODERATELY CONFUSED by Bill Stahler

Tea party gives GOP mixed outlook for November WASHINGTON — Following the primary season, the position of the Republican Party is strong but precarious, like a bodybuilder on a tightrope. Republicans benefit from tea party momentum. They suffer from tea party victories. As part of a political coalition, the tea party movement empowers. As the dominant actor, it alienates. The problem for Republicans: They have no idea at what level the influence of the tea party movement will crest. Delaware’s Republican Senate primary defined one possible future. Voters elevated ideological purity above every other political value, including probity, relevant experience and electability. In the process, Republicans wasted an unusual opportunity to win a Senate seat in a heavily Democratic state. One poll reports that just 31 percent of Delaware voters believe Republican nominee Christine O’Donnell is fit to hold public office. But the primary season told other stories. Sen. John McCain’s trouncing of J.D. Hayworth showed that the tea party label does not guarantee suc-

cess for buffoonish candidates. In a number of states, mainstream conservatives turned aside tea party challenges and are now propelled by political winds that once threatened to capsize their candidacies. One tea party hero — Marco Rubio — has turned out to be a strong candidate and likely Republican star. So the picture is mixed. Who would have thought, on election night 2008, that within two years the most potent force in American politics would be a grass-roots conservative movement that is likely to help return Republican control of the House of Representatives? But particularly in smaller Republican electorates — Delaware’s 60,000 Republican primary voters or

the few thousand Republican delegates who sent Utah Sen. Bob Bennett into retirement — intensity can overwhelm judgment. As a rule, the smaller the Republican electorate, the larger the tea party influence. The larger the electorate, the more off-putting that influence becomes. Republican Senate prospects illustrate the challenge. Without the broad backlash to the Obama agenda channeled by the tea party, Republican control of the Senate would be inconceivable. Without the primary victories of tea party candidates in Nevada and Delaware, that control would be more likely. And some tea party activists seem content with this state of affairs, arguing that an

unspoiled minority is preferable to a majority held hostage to its most liberal members. But this is not the way parties gain influence. Imposing the same ideological standards for all Republican candidates — in Delaware as in South Carolina — would assure losses in whole regions of the country. It is also dawning on Republicans that presidential caucuses and primaries — small electorates sending outsized messages — are well-suited to tea party intensity. If Sarah Palin were to run for president, she would likely win Iowa and South Carolina. No other prospect can make that claim. And though many Republicans remain in denial, this makes Sarah Palin the Republican front-runner. Some intellectual conservatives believe that the tea party populism will be domesticated by governing. Says one: “The movement doesn’t last through 2012 in anything like its current form. It will carry a Republican House and less Democratic Senate, but its energy will inevitably dissipate as national politics becomes more complicated with divided government

and the economy improves some. That’s why I think the policy wonks are important — people proposing real ideas, how smaller government should mean a more robust civil society, while making sure there is a safety net for the poor. The new House might listen to these ideas more than the protesters themselves.” But it is also possible that the tea party will define the hated “establishment,” not just as moderate Republicans such as Mike Castle of Delaware but as moderate conservatives of every stripe. Many tea party activists espouse a “constitutionalism” that amounts to an extreme libertarianism. Their goal is not just deficit reduction but the dismantling of the modern state. And they may prove harder to tame than some imagine. A Republican Party propelled by tea party enthusiasm is headed toward victory. A Republican Party dominated by tea party ideology would be pure, disturbing — and small. • Michael Gerson writes for the Washington Post Writers Group.

WILLIAMS

WASHINGTON (AP) — It’s John McCain versus Lady Gaga today as the Senate takes up the emotional issue of repealing the ban on gays serving openly in the military. Senate Democrats have attached a repeal of the 17-year-old “don’t ask, don’t tell� law to a bill authorizing $726 billion in military spending next year. The fate of the move appears uncertain, but whichever way the votes go,

repeal seems destined to become a major issue in this fall’s midterm elections. The law is already under siege. A federal judge in California recently ruled the ban on gays was unconstitutional, polls suggest a majority of Americans oppose it and Lady Gaga has challenged it in a YouTube video. Repeal advocates say the law deprives the military of capable soldiers and violates civil rights.

— Reader, via e-mail A: Credit card debt is a very expensive way to borrow money. I know many people do it, but all the same you are paying a lot more over the years for that hamburger you thought only cost you $4. If I were you, the first thing I would attack is that credit card debt using your bonus after taxes. I would use it all on your debt. Figure out what you can use from your current income to finish it off and get rid of it as fast as possible. You have the resources to take care of this debt — all it takes now is the discipline. Get to it! •

Bruce Williams writes for Newspaper Enterprise Association. E-mail him at bruce@brucewilliams.com.

But McCain of Arizona and other prominent Republicans are fighting to keep the law in place, at least until the Pentagon completes a survey later this year on repeal’s likely effect on troops. GOP critics say lifting the ban at a time when troops are fighting two wars would undermine morale. “I regret to see that the longrespected and revered Senate Armed Services Committee has evolved into a forum for a

social agenda of the liberal left of the Senate,� McCain said last week on the Senate floor. An estimated 13,000 people have been discharged under the law since its inception in 1993. Top defense leaders, including Secretary Robert Gates and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. Mike Mullen, have said they support a repeal but want to move slowly to ensure changes won’t hurt morale.

Recession ended last summer, panel finds WASHINGTON (AP) — It turns out the recession ended more than a year ago. The National Bureau of Economic Research, the panel that determines the timing of recessions, concluded Monday that this one ended — techni-

cally, anyway — in June 2009, and lasted 18 months. The duration makes it the longest since World War II. It might be over, but you won’t be hearing any cheers from the millions of Americans who are struggling to

find a job. Or are worried about the ones they have. Or have lost their homes. “Every single one of the individuals who wrote the report needs a serious reality check,� said Bob Johnson of Queens, 46, who has been looking for a

KABUL, Afghanistan — A NATO helicopter crashed today in southern Afghanistan, killing nine international troops in a region where forces are ramping up pressure on Taliban insurgents. It was the deadliest chopper crash for the coalition in four years. The cause was not immediately clear. The Taliban claimed to have shot down the helicopter, but NATO said there were no reports of hostile fire.

Proposal bans texting by haz-mat truckers

Stocks set for rise on housing news

WASHINGTON — Targeting distractions behind the wheel, the Obama administration proposed today to bar truck drivers from sending text messages while hauling hazardous materials. The requirements would complement separate rules being finalized by the Transportation Department that prohibit commercial bus and truck drivers from sending text messages on the job and restrict train operators from using cell phones and mobile devices on duty.

NEW YORK — Stock futures rose modestly today after a big jump in new home construction added more optimism that the economy will not fall back into recession. The move in futures was modest, though, as investors waited to see if the Federal Reserve might take new actions to further stimulate the economy. While home construction and other indicators in recent weeks have

Q: Like many other young couples, we lived from paycheck to paycheck. Now we don’t have to do that anymore, as I am finally making a decent income. We BRUCE used our credit cards to keep afloat and I now have several major creditors to which we owe $30,000. I earn $85,000 a year. Despite the bad economy, I will still be getting my yearly bonus, which should be in the ballpark of $15,000 before taxes. How do I go about attacking my debt?

Igor brushes Bermuda, pelts Canada with rain ST. JOHN’S, Newfoundland (AP) — Hurricane Igor pelted eastern Canada with strong winds and heavy rain today, flooding communities, washing out roads and stranding some residents in their homes. In the Pacific, a mild tropical storm formed and was expected to cross the Mexican resort area of Baja California later in the day. Forecasters issued a tropical storm warning and a hurricane watch for Igor on the coast of Newfoundland, on Canada’s eastern coast. “This is not your normal heavy rainfall flooding. It’s having a major impact,” said Chris Fogarty, of the Canadian Hurricane Centre. He said more than 8 inches of rain had already fallen in some regions. Dennis Shea of the province’s Emergency and Fire Services office said several communities have been cut off by high water and in some cases boats have been used to rescue people from their own homes. No injuries or fatalities have been reported. The Pacific tropical storm, Georgette, had maximum sustained winds near 40 mph, but weakening was expected once it moves inland over the Baja California peninsula later today. It was located about 60 miles south-southeast of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, this morn-

A man walks by an excursion boat that was pushed ashore by Hurricane Igor in St. George, Bermuda, Monday. ing and was moving northnorthwest near 9 mph. A tropical storm warning was issued for southern Baja California. Along eastern Canada, Igor was transforming to a posttropical storm, which has a different structure from a hurricane but still packs the same punch, Fogarty said. Royal Canadian Mounted Police Sgt. Wayne Edgecombe said heavy rains that flooded a key bridge in southern Newfoundland have left the Burin Peninsula’s 20,000 residents

cut off from the rest of the province. Edgecombe said roads all over the peninsula have been washed out or submerged, but so far there have been no major crises. Igor doggedly stayed just above hurricane strength, with maximum sustained winds of 80 mph. Today, the storm center was about 155 miles south-southwest of Cape Race in Newfoundland and moving to the northeast near 40 mph, the Canadian Hurricane Centre said.

Schools have been closed and some flights at the St. John’s International Airport have been delayed or canceled. The Canadian company Husky Energy evacuated workers from two semi-submersible drilling rigs working the White Rose offshore oil field, spokeswoman Colleen McConnell said. “We’re as ready as we possibly can be ready,” said Dennis O’Keefe, the mayor of St. John’s, Newfoundland. Igor left behind power out-

ages, grounded boats and downed trees in Bermuda and kicked up dangerous surf on the U.S. Atlantic coast. After brushing past Bermuda, which escaped major damage, Igor veered away from the United States, but forecasters said it could still cause high surf along U.S. beaches. Meanwhile in the Atlantic, Tropical Storm Lisa formed with winds near 40 mph. The storm was about 530 miles west-northwest of the Cape Verde Islands off Africa.

Thomas said some fines may be revised, too. “The fines have not been increased in a very long time, and we may increase some of

those as well,” she said. Beauman said he feels the increases are necessary. “There’s still no way it will cover our court costs,” he

said. Reached after the meeting, Winfield said he was in Hattiesburg on personal business Monday and would

be back in Vicksburg today. Winfield was in Washington, D.C., for a conference on community service Wednesday through Saturday.

On the agenda Meeting Monday, supervisors: • Approved Emergency Management Director Gwen Coleman to accept for a Local Emergency Planning Committee a $1,150 donation from Jimmy G. Gouras Urban Planning Consultants Inc. to match a grant for hazardous materials incident management. • Warren County was awarded $5,750 a year ago to upgrade the LEPC website and analyze Vicksburg and Warren County’s vulnerabilities on hazardous materials. Only $250 was spent. • Approved a Point of Delivery site security plan in the event of an outbreak of influenza, in keeping with a directives of programs administered by the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency. • Approved picking up the cost of sandwiches, chips, cookies and beverages for emergency response workers and volunteer fire personnel who attended required radiological training on Sept. 9 and 16 in preparation for the 2011 Grand Gulf Nuclear Station Ingestion Pathway Exercise. • Approved a $135,305 grant to the Vicksburg Tallulah Regional Airport adviso-

in when supervisors adopted a final version Sept. 7. A $188,140.56 drop in expected property tax revenue has now turned into a $140,333.27 gain compared to a year ago, including taxes due to the city and school district, County Administrator John Smith said. The county’s $14.8 million budget for the year starting Oct. 1 was balanced between spending and revenue. The pending settlement would cap off one of two filed by casinos last year against Warren County. In August, county officials settled a

tax dispute with Ameristar Casino that resulted in a $3.3 million property tax bill on its 21 parcels of property in Vicksburg, which essentially split the difference between Ameristar’s tax liability before its expensive renovation completed in 2008 and what the Tax Assessor’s Office originally calculated. Through its attorneys, Ameristar has said it won’t press for a refund of personal property taxes, estimated by county officials at $198,600, but would consider taking the refund as a credit for 2010 to pay in February 2011.

No local match is needed. • Took no public comments following a brief hearing on a final round of GO Zone bonds being issued for International Paper. • Supervisors authorized execution of a contract to issue $40 million in the Katrina-inspired improvement bonds so upgrades at the Mississippi 3 plant continue. Local governments have acted as conduits on $145 million in GO Zone bond issues for IP since 2006. • Approved transferring $83,163 from the Cops Technology Grant fund and the Justice Assistance Grant fund to the general fund. • Took under advisement an order from County Court Judge Johnny Price Jr. outlining a $634.50 debt owed by George M. Ferris. • County officials said during the meeting the debt concerned a justice court case involving driving with no insurance and no inspection sticker. Upon advice of board counsel, supervisors sought more information on the matter because it ordered a dispersal of funds from the justice court clerk.

• Took under advisement five bids to replace lighting and air conditioning with more energy-efficient fixtures and units at the Warren County-Vicksburg Public Library and at supervisors’ offices on Jackson Street. Financing for both comes from a $212,800 allocation of stimulus money from the Department of Energy. • Base bids were: $176,000 by Bolton-based Metro Mechanical; $178,650 by Greenwood-based Upchurch Plumbing; $226,700 by Jackson-based Buford Plumbing Co.; $240,000 by McClain Plumbing; and $264,000 by Ridgelandbased Ivey Mechanical. • Took under advisement a bid from Jackson-based Custom Products for road and street signs. • Purchasing Agent Tonga Vinson said the prices already reflect increases for federally-mandated, highintensity highway signage, using a $6.57 jump in the price of a 36-inch stop sign as an example. • Took under advisement two bids on waste tire collection. • Took under advisement an offer to subscribe to an edition of law books from West Publishing for the law library at Justice Court.

Broncos’ McKinley found dead at home

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Denver Broncos wide receiver Kenny McKinley was found dead in his home Monday in an apparent suicide. Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson said authorities were called to McKinley’s home in Centennial at 3:35 p.m. local time and found McKinley’s body in the second-floor master bedroom. He said detectives believe McKinley, 23, was killed by a selfinflicted gunshot wound. Robinson said authorities were called by a female friend of McKinley’s who discovered the body after returning from an errand with his child. The sheriff declined to say if authorities found a suicide note. “It’s still part of our investigation and probably nothing we’ll talk about right now,” he said. McKinley, a fifth-round draft choice out of South Carolina in 2009, was on injured reserve after hurting his left knee in August for the second time in eight months.

Gators show improvement despite another loss By Jeff Byrd jbyrd@vicksburgpost.com MONTICELLO — In at least two phases of the game, Vicksburg High made some strides Friday night. Vicksburg’s special teams executed three successful onside kicks to get back in the game against Lawrence County. The offense came alive in the second half by converting two of the recoveries into touchdowns, then answered a Lawrence County score with a 65-yard TD pass from quarterback Cameron Cooksey to Alvin Stamps. Still, the end result was a 46-21 loss that dropped the Gators to 0-4. A leaky defense that allowed Lawrence County to rush for 445 yards and six touchdowns continued to

prep football hinder the Gators, who have now lost 14 of their last 15 games as they head into this Friday’s Region 2-6A opener Cameron at MemoCooksey rial Stadium against Grenada (0-4). Cooksey agreed with his coach, Alonzo Stevens, that their team is not that far away from being a consistent contender in games. “We’re definitely getting better,” Cooksey said. “We keep trying. We’re doing some good things.” One of those things is the passing game. Cooksey has thrown for over 100 yards

in all four contests. Against Lawrence County, he was 10-of-27 for 179 yards and one touchdown. For the season, he has completed 39 of 101 passes for 594 yards and five touchdowns. Stamps has become a bigplay target with three touchdown receptions of over 50 yards. He had an 80-yarder in the season-opening loss to seventh-ranked Gulfport in the Red Carpet Bowl. “We’ve shown we can be explosive on offense,” Stevens said. “The offense stepped up again. We got three second-half touchdowns. Our special teams had a great game with two onside kicks to begin the half and then get another one in the fourth quarter.” Gators kicker Travis Haas executed the kicks, two coming via the pooch variety.

He was also 3-for-3 on extra points. The defense, however, remained a problem. After watching the special teams and offense combine to trim a 20-0 halftime deficit to 20-14, the Gators’ defense held Lawrence County to gains of three yards or less on eight of the first nine plays from scrimmage in the third quarter. Vicksburg, however, could not overcome a 12 men on the field penalty that gave the Cougars an automatic first down at the VHS 40. On three more occasions the Gators forced a fourth down, but allowed Lawrence County to convert. One of those was a 16-yard gain by Laquan Hillaird, which led to a 2-yard TD run by Alexander Montgomery later in the drive. Montgomery’s score

gave Lawrence County a 26-14 lead. The Cougars converted another fourth down play on their next drive to set up Hillaird’s 18-yard touchdown run that made it 33-14. Cooksey’s hookup with Stamps brought VHS back to 33-21 and then they got the onside kick with four minutes to play. Cooksey, however, completed just one of four passes on the ensuing series for one yard. The Cougars capitalized, wearing out a tired Gator defense for two more touchdowns to put the game away. Cooksey feels the cure for the Gators is pretty simple. “We need to find that desire to win,” Cooksey said. “That’s what makes it easy to play hard on every down.”

Last-second field goal saves Saints Eagles

trying to find answers

By The Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO — For nearly 59 minutes, coach Mike Singletary’s bold proclamation that San Francisco would stop Drew Brees and the high-powered New Orleans Saints looked prophetic. Then with one late drive worthy of the Super Bowl champions, Brees eked out another victory for the Saints. Garrett Hartley’s deflected 37-yard field goal fluttered over the cross bar after time expired to cap the winning drive that gave the Saints a 25-22 victory over the 49ers on Monday night. “We won the game and that’s all that counts,” Brees said. “There were definitely things you wish you would have done a little bit differently but the fact of the matter is we found a way to win at the end.” The Saints (2-0) took advantage of four turnovers, an errant shotgun snap that gave them a safety and a kick that barely made it through the uprights to spoil the home opener for San Francisco (0-2). In a testy television interview last week, Singletary bristled at a question about how the Niners would try to stop Brees. “We will not try to stop Drew Brees,” he told KPIXTV. “We will stop Drew Brees. Next question.” The Niners held Brees and the Saints to 231 yards of offense until the final drive. The game appeared headed to overtime when Frank Gore scored on a 7-yard run with 1:19 remaining and Alex Smith completed a 2-point conversion to Vernon Davis that needed

Thomas to move the ball into San Francisco territory and a 30-yarder to Marques Colston to get into field goal range. “We’ve been here before,” Brees said. “We knew exactly what we had to

do, just find a way to win. We’ve shown that we can win in a lot of ways. To be battle tested like this, just in the first two weeks of the season, is going to serve us See Saints, Page B2.

Bush banged up in victory By The Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO — New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush had to leave Monday night’s 25-22 victory over San Francisco in the fourth quarter with an injured right leg. ESPN and the New Orleans Times-Picayune reported this morning that Bush broke his right fibula and will miss at least six weeks. The Saints were not scheduled to meet with the media today, so an official announcement about Bush’s status isn’t likely to come until Wednesday.

Bush had an ice bag wrapped around his right leg in the locker room Monday night and was using crutches to get around. “I’m just trying not to think the worst and just try to stay as positive as I can in this situation,” Bush said. Bush said he would likely get X-rays after the team returned to New Orleans. Bush hurt himself after recovering his muffed punt with 6:58 remaining. He had trouble catching the ball at windy Candlestick Park and was hurt diving to cover up the loose ball. “Last second it kind of shifted a little bit, just

enough for me to drop it,” he said. “I tried to recover it and somebody took my leg out. I don’t know who it was, what happened or how it happened. I just know my leg got taken out. That’s it.” He was tended to by trainers and then tried to walk off the field favoring his right leg. He fell back to the turf and was worked on again before being helped off. Bush finished with 4 yards on five carries. He also had 30 yards and a touchdown on four receptions. The Saints also lost cornerback Randall Gay to a concussion late in the first quarter.

Saints running back Reggie Bush is carried off the field after injuring his leg in the fourth quarter of Monday’s game against San Francisco.

At the traditional postgame handshake, long-time coaching friends John Weaver and David King wished each other luck after Friday’s 47-7 win by Trinity over Porters Chapel. King told Weaver that his PCA team had his Saints on the ropes for much of the first half. It’s just a shame that the Eagles (2-3) let the Saints (5-0) off the ropes to later land a knockout blow. Now PCA will have to regroup — again — following its third consecutive loss. Weaver is glad that the three-game stretch of playing some of the best teams the MAIS has to offer is finally over. He hoped for the Eagles to win at least one of those games, but he feels the experience was a good one for his team moving forward. “We’re 2-3, we played Jake three tough Boyd teams, but I’m really confident our guys are going to bounce back,” Weaver said. The biggest issue for the Eagles was an inability to move the ball. Or, when they did, they couldn’t capitalize. Three of their turnovers killed scoring drives in Trinity territory. After their first turnover, a fumble, set up Trinity with a short field to take a 14-7 lead in the first quarter, the Eagles marched down the field with short, underneath passes and strong running by Jake Boyd. But the Eagles let two chances slip away. Quarterback Jonah Masterson threw a pick at the Trinity 5 and the Eagles recovered a fumble on the return. But another interception took away the second chance at the Trinity 23. Boyd had 125 yards of total offense, divided between two catches for 45 yards and 80 yards rushing in place of Montana McDaniel at running back. McDaniel suffered a separated shoulder and Weaver See PCA, Page B2.

said his injury is a minor one. He’ll likely miss this week’s game against Prentiss, but should return in time to face division foe Russell Christian next week. In addiion to Boyd, Peter Harris and freshman Chris Williams will see time in the backfield this week against Prentiss Christian. Williams has impressed on the scout team and Weaver told him after the Trinity loss he’d be “pulling the redshirt” off of him. “Jake’s come a long way for us,” Weaver said. “He’s going to get the nod for us at running back Friday. We’ve got three or four guys who can tote the load for us. And that’s a good problem to have.”

very well as we go forward.” After another short pass to Jeremy Shockey and a false start penalty, Hartley came on with 2 seconds left for his first game-winning attempt since winning the NFC championship with a 40-yarder in overtime against Minnesota in January. That kick sailed easily through the uprights. This one had a much more treacherous route. Ray McDonald got a hand on the ball but it still managed to make it over the cross bar for the win. “I got half the ball but I didn’t get enough,” McDonald said. The near blocked kick typified the night for the Niners. They turned

baseball Wellman dismissed as M-Braves’ manager The Mississippi Braves have cut ties with manager Phillip Wellman after five seasons with the team. Kurt Kemp, the Atlanta Braves’ director of player development, said Monday that Wellman’s contract was not renewed. He said there was no timetable for naming a replacement, but does expect one to be in place within two months. “It was an organizational decision not to retain him,” Kemp told the Clarion-Ledger. Wellman, 47, was the M-Braves’ hitting coach in 2005 and ‘06 before becoming manager in 2007. He led the M-Braves to the 2008 Southern League title and was named the league’s manager of the year. Under Wellman, the M-Braves also made the playoffs in 2007. They finished 63-74 this season.

Franklinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son severely beaten in Detroit Singing legend Aretha Franklinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son has been severely beaten at a gas station in Detroit, a spokeswoman said. Gwendolyn Quinn said in a statement that Eddie Franklin was attacked Monday night and was undergoing surgery at a Detroit-area hospital. The statement said three people may have been involved in the beating. Quinn said she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any additional inAretha Franklin formation beyond the statement. A message was left this morning with Detroit police. The Queen of Soul is one of the most honored musicians in American history, having won numerous Grammys; the National Medal of Arts; the Presidential Medal of Freedom and induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Warrant issued for Lohan; jail possible A judge issued an arrest warrant Monday for Lindsay Lohan after the actress acknowledged failing a drug test less than a month after she was released from inpatient rehab. Superior Court Judge Elden Fox also revoked Lohanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probation in her three-year-old drug case while issuing the bench warrant in Beverly Hills. However, the warrant was stayed, and Lohan was allowed to remain free pending a hearing Friday to determine if she violated her probation. Fox previously threatened the actress with 30 days in jail for each violation. He must now decide whether to send her back to jail or into treatment. Lohan must attend the hearing. A message left with her attorney Shawn Chapman Holley was not immediately returned.

Hilton pleads in Vegas arrest, avoids jail Just a few years ago, Paris Hilton claimed her lawless days were behind her after she served 23 days in jail for violating probation. These days, however, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unclear exactly what the celebrity socialite learned from her time behind bars. Hilton, whose partying brought her worldwide notoriety, acknowledged in a court appearance Monday that she stashed cocaine in her purse and lied to police during her arrest last month at a Las Vegas resort. Paris Under the terms of a plea deal, the 29-yearHilton old Hilton pleaded guilty to drug possession and obstructing an officer, both misdemeanors. She must serve a year of probation, complete a drug program, pay a $2,000 fine and serve 200 hours of community service. If she violates her probation, she could get a year in jail. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Treat this very seriously,â&#x20AC;? Justice of the Peace Joe M. Bonaventure cautioned Hilton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Clark County Detention Center is not the Waldorf-Astoria.â&#x20AC;? Hiltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attorney David Chesnoff said she would attend an outpatient substance abuse treatment program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know Ms. Hilton is contrite and accepts the responsibility for her actions,â&#x20AC;? Chesnoff said. It was Hiltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest encounter with the law since 2006, when she was arrested in Los Angeles on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Guitar shows up on eBay after 8 years The owner of a vintage Gibson Les Paul Special stolen eight years ago has found the guitar after it finally resurfaced on eBay. Doug Duncan never gave up looking for the 1957 guitar after it was stolen in rural Minnesota. The 57-year-old musician had years ago signed up to get e-mail notifications from the auction site whenever similar guitars went on sale. The site sent him an alert last month saying a similar guitar had been listed by a seller in Mill Valley, Calif. Duncan realized from the serial number that it was his guitar. Even the duct tape heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d put on the case was still there. Investigators reached the seller, who was a collector with no idea it was stolen. Duncan hopes the person who sold the guitar to the collector can be identified so he can also recover his childhood guitar stolen along with the Les Paul.

EVERY SATURDAY IN SEPTEMBER AND OCTOBER!! â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Biggest Loserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; premieres KIDS 10 AND UNDER EAT FREE!!! tonight with city contestant

One free kids meal from the children's menu with the purchase of each adult meal OR One order of cheese sticks or fried dill pickles per table with the purchase of any adult meal. Dine-In only.

From staff reports Tonight is the season kickoff of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Biggest Loser,â&#x20AC;? featuring a contestant from Vicksburg, Patrick House. Physical trainers travel to seven U.S. cities to motivate the communities and find contestants to compete at the California ranch at losing weight for the grand prize of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Biggest Loserâ&#x20AC;? title and $250,000. House, 28, a native of Brandon who lives in the River City with his wife, Bradley, and two sons, ages 2 and 4, was chosen in May as one of 21 challengers. Since much of the show is filmed far ahead of its broadcast date, House and his family have been sworn to secrecy about his progress. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being in California, away from my family for three months, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been pretty tough. But coming back to this â&#x20AC;&#x201D; I know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been worth

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Biggest Loserâ&#x20AC;? season premiere is at 7 tonight on NBC. it,â&#x20AC;? House said while in Vicksburg in August. At the ranch, House has worked with trainers Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper. Now he returns home to continue the work in a second phase of competition. How much House weighed at the beginning of the process is also hush-hush, but the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website describes him as â&#x20AC;&#x153;a former college football player who continued to consume large quantities of food long after an injury forced him to stop playing.â&#x20AC;? The theme for the 10th season of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Biggest Loserâ&#x20AC;? is Pay It Forward. House was a sales representative for a food service firm, but was recently laid off.

Next generation might give new life to baby set Dear Abby: My mother passed away two years ago, and her first great-grandchild will be born in less than two months. I had hoped when I was still in my 30s to have a child of my own, so I had Mom crochet me a baby set — sweater, booties, cap and blanket. Sadly, motherhood for me was not to be. Do you think this baby set should go to the firstborn great-grandchild, or to Mom’s favorite grandchild’s children? The color is gender-neutral. Should I perhaps “loan” it to each of the great-grandchildren when they arrive to ensure that it will be maintained as a family heirloom? I paid for all the materials and Mom’s time in creating these items. I feel it would be selfish not to share them. — Soon-toBe-Great-Aunt Dear Soon-To-Be-GreatAunt: If you wish to establish that the baby set will become a family heirloom, stipulate that it is your intention that it be shared among the family members as more children come along. I do not recom-

mend playing favorites with it, because to do so could create resentment. However, it is important that you understand that once the baby set is given, it will be out of your control. There are no guarantees that it won’t be damaged or hoarded. So unless you are ready to let go of it emotionally, don’t give it away. Dear Abby: I am writing about a random act of kindness. Last night my husband and I went out to dinner with our two small children. He’s in the Army and wore his uniform because he had gotten off late and he didn’t want to keep the kids from eating while he changed. While we waited for our meal to be served, our waiter came to us and said it was

TOMORROW’S HOROSCOPE

BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION If tomorrow is your birthday: Material opportunities of all kinds are likely to be offered to you in the year ahead, by more than one promoter. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — A friend who has been beneficial for you previously is likely to be so again. This person may be the one who initiates things for you, but you’ll play the key role in the end. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Devote all your effort to your most important project, because whatever you do is likely to go more smoothly, and will come out better than expected. The bigger your endeavor, the luckier you are. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Friends you chill with are likely to be luckier for you than usual. At least one among them will do something for you that you’ll find to be extremely kind. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Try to go the full distance, because your luck could turn out to be in proportion to your staying power. Even if you’re doing something you never did before, stick with it like nougat on the roof of your mouth. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Focus solely on the positive aspects of what faces you, and it will turn out to be extremely rewarding. Your success is predicated mostly on your attitude, so never stop believing to achieve. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — You could be quite fortunate where material things are concerned, so focus your efforts on what you want and/or on sizeable opportunities. There might be more than one prize. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Friends, associates and family will offer to assist you in situations in which they see you are trying hard to T.C.O.B. Ironically, your self-reliance is what will be attracting supporters. Aries (March 21-April 19) — This could be payback time for you, with more than one person finding a way to repay you in some kind of equitable way. What you receive in return could be far grander than that which you gave. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Undercurrents are stirring that will help you transform some kind of major hope into a tasty reality. You’ll get the first inkling today that this is happening. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — It’s time to stop settling for second-best and elevate your sights a bit higher. Put forth that extra effort or contact that person who can help you achieve what your heart desires. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Instead of merely being concerned about what is going on in your life at the moment, begin putting forth whatever it takes to reach that brass ring. This is a good day to get new things rolling. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — If something you’re contemplating could be far easier to execute with the support of others, this is the day to gather the support you need. Talk to those whom you feel would be an asset.

TWEEN 12 & 20

BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: I’m 16 and so is my best friend. This might be unusual because I’m female and he’s a male. We have been great friends for over two years. We became close when we were biology lab partners. He helped me to dissect my frog. We talk to each other almost every day at school or at home on the phone or by text. We have never gone out together, but lately I’d like to be more than just a friend. I’d like to be his girlfriend. What should I do to get him to ask me out? I’ll be grateful to you forever if your advice turns friendship into romance! — Nameless, Sacramento, Calif. Nameless: The time has come for you to be assertive. The next time he calls, tell him you’d like to talk to him at school over lunch break. When you see him, inform him that it’s time to go out on a date and suggest the following Friday or Saturday night. That way he has to make a choice. I’m positive he’ll be happy you took the initiative to get the dating process moving. You know he truly cares for you or he wouldn’t be calling you every school night. Dr. Wallace: I baby-sit for a lady who lives down the street. She is nice and provides snacks for me, but she never pays what she owes me. If I earn $10, she will give me $5 and say, “I’ll catch you later.” I have kept a record, and she owes me $72. I really could use the money. I realize she struggles with paying bills because she is a single mom. What can I do to get my money without causing a scene? — Ginger, Elizabethtown, Ky. Ginger: This woman is cheating you. You shouldn’t work for her again until she starts paying up. The next time she needs your services, tell her you’ll only baby-sit if she pays you in full for that day’s work, plus at least $5 on her growing debt. Show her your records, so she can’t quibble about what she owes. If she doesn’t cooperate, ask a parent to talk to her. • Write to Dr. Peter Gott in care of United Media, P.O. Box 167, Wickliffe, OH 440920167.

our “lucky night.” The couple seated next to us was paying for the entire meal. Things like this have happened to my husband before — with small lunches or drinks — but never something as large as dinner for four. The gesture was touching and thoughtful, and made more special by the fact that it was the woman’s birthday. That she thought of someone else on “her” day made me smile. We only got the gentleman’s name — it was Russell, like our son’s — but not hers. We want to express our gratitude to her. And we hope her birthday was as delightful as our evening was, thanks to her. — Touched by Her Kindness in Fort Huachuca, Ariz. Dear Touched: I’m sure it was. Happy people like to spread the joy around. And thank you for reminding me and my readers how much an expression of gratitude to our members of the military can mean to those who receive one. Dear Abby: I have a beautiful 2-month-old daughter,

and I like to dress her in little pants and shirts rather than dresses. Often these clothes are in gender-neutral colors — yellow, green and, yes, sometimes blue. Whenever she’s wearing something other than pink, people assume she’s a boy and say things like, “Oh, what a handsome little guy,” or, “Hi, big boy!” How would you suggest I respond to these people? Should I ignore them and go on with my errands or correct them? I hope that by reading this people will think before they assume a baby’s gender based on the color of his/ her clothing. — Annoyed in Pennsylvania Dear Annoyed: They may or may not. The next time it happens, smile at the person and say, “It’s a girl!”

Meds or alternatives for hand tremors? Dear Dr. Gott: Can you tell me if there is a safe and effective home remedy for hand tremors? My father is 69 years old and has stopped going to his doctor for his monthly B12 shots, which were given to reduce his hand tremors. I advised him to try drinking six to eight ounces of warm sage tea up to three times a day, but can you recommend something else that will work for him? Dear Reader: While there is a genetic tendency, no one knows why tremors exist; however, they represent an abnormal communication between specific areas of the brain. Causes can include Parkinson’s disease; stroke; low bloodsugar levels; thyroid abnormalities; some medications, such as those for cardiac issues; tricyclic antidepressants; decongestants; and breathing issues. Drinks that contain caffeine are also known to cause tremor, as is stress, anxiety and fatigue. Essential and familiar tremors can be suppressed by consuming alcoholic beverages, but this is not a desirable remedy. Symptoms of essential tremor begin gradually, can be aggravated by emotional stress and temperature extremes, and differ from Parkinson’s because they happen when a person’s hands, head and voice are being used. Parkinson’s tremor, in contrast, tends to occur when the hands are at rest, without involvement of the head or voice. If treatment is required — and it isn’t in all cases — tranquilizers, antiseizure medications, beta blockers ordinarily prescribed for hypertension and Botox injections might be prescribed. Alternative treatment includes massage, hypnosis, acupuncture and relaxation techniques, such as tai chi or yoga. One consideration is 100 milligrams of grape-seed extract and 50 micrograms of vitamin B50. B12 fights anemia and nerve damage, and is said to reverse the symptoms of Bell’s palsy. If it helped your father’s tremor, he might consider the monthly injection once again. I would suggest that you speak with his physician to determine whether his tremor is benign or has an underlying cause. Dear Dr. Gott: I have a friend who takes medicine that causes him to be constipated. One of my co-workers said she saw an article in one of your columns for a cocktail for this problem, but she could not remember the ingredients. Her husband used it at one point and had good results. It’s odd that I write because I have an ileostomy and have exactly the opposite problem. I take tincture of opium, which slows my bowels down and lessens the amount of fluids I lose. Our bodies are amazing, and it’s good to educate ourselves about them with as much knowledge as we can.

ASK THE DOCTOR Dr. PETER

GOTT

Dear Reader: My colon cocktail consists of equal portions of unprocessed bran, applesauce and prune juice. Mix the three ingredients together, and place them in your refrigerator for at least an hour to blend. Then take 1 to 2 tablespoons daily, more if necessary, for relief. The remedy may take up to two weeks to be fully effective.
