Jobless situation ‘a national crisis’ Claims for benefits fall By The Associated Press

BILL MONROE ON THEIR MINDS

WASHINGTON — Hours after the chairman of the Federal Reserve said longterm unemployment is a “national crisis,” the Labor Department said the number of people seeking unemployment benefits fell sharply last week, an encouraging sign that layoffs are easing. “This is unheard of,” Ben Bernanke said in Cleveland Wednesday as he talked about unemployed workers. “This has never happened in the post-war period in the United States. They are losing the skills they had, they are losing their connections, their attachment to the labor force. Responding to a question, Bernanke said long-term unemployment, budgetary discipline and housing policy were the three most impor-

Technology changing spin on today’s law and order By Pamela Hitchins phitchins@vicksburgpost.com These are not your daddy’s cops and robbers. Technology is changing how criminals work and how law enforcement officers catch them and prosecutors put them in prison, said Warren County District Attorney Ricky Smith. “The use of computers and cell phones is so prevalent now, even when the crime is not computer-related, there is still a lot of evidence that can be accessed through them or through a cell phone,” said Smith. Smith attended the Southeastern Prosecutors Summit staged by the National Computer Forensics Institute in Hoover, Ala., this week.

‘It’s getting easier and easier to steal information from people.’ Ricky Smith District attorney Retrieving information from a suspect’s computer and cell phone were just two of the topics covered.

Oakley escapee found near Vicksburg home A call about a suspicious vehicle on Shady Lane led to the arrest of a 17-yearold male juvenile who had escaped Sept. 21 from Oakley Training Center in Hinds County, Vicksburg police Lt. Bobby Stewart said. Stewart said officers responding to calls from residents about two juveniles sitting in a car parked in the 300 block of Shady Lane, in Enchanted Hills subdivision, arrived to find an empty 1995 Buick Regal that had been reported stolen about the time of the escape from a home in Hinds County in the area around Oakley. When officers went to the teen’s mother’s house in the same block to talk with her, he fled out the back door and into a wooded area behind

crime

from staff reports the house. He was later captured by a police officer and a police dog. He was returned to Hinds County, where he will be charged with burglary and auto theft, Stewart said. He said the other teen in the car was a white male who escaped with the 17-year-old and remains at-large. His age was unavailable.

Five car break-ins reported in minutes Money, CDs and audio equipment were among the items reported stolen today in a series of early morning car burglaries in the Rolling Acres housing complex off

Mission 66, Vicksburg police Lt. Bobby Stewart said. Stewart said 10 CDs valued at $100 were reported stolen at 3:30 a.m. from a 2007 Ford Explorer parked in the 100 block of Elizabeth Circle. Four minutes later, he said, $40 was reported stolen from a 1998 Mercury Marquis in the 100 block of Athens Street. At the same time, a wallet valued at $10 and containing $10 was reported stolen from a 2000 Oldsmobile parked in the 100 block of Elizabeth Circle. At 3:38 a.m., an AM/FM/ CD player valued at $200 was reported stolen from a 2001 Jeep Laredo in the 100 block of Elizabeth Circle, and a 1987 Ford Mustang parked in the same block was reported ransacked, but nothing

missing. Stewart said officers responding to the call about the 2007 Explorer discovered the other break-ins while investigating the Explorer burglary and notified the owners. He said all of the cars were entered by breaking the driver’s side windows. He said police believe the break-ins are related and the work of either one person or several people.

Computer is missing from county home A Dell laptop valued at $250 was reported stolen about 8:32 a.m. Wednesday from a home in the 100 block of North Drive, Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace said.

Mississippi native seeks help for film A Meridian native will host an event Saturday at the Old Southern Tea Room to raise money for a film that features Vicksburg. T.J. Harper, who now lives in Greenville, N.C., is hoping to raise enough funds to produce a movie based on “Mississippi Blues,” a book by Cassandra Darden Bell that uses Vicksburg as the backdrop. “I have people lined up to tell interested investors about the story,” Harper said. Harper, whose company is POPSFilm, will be the movie’s director and screenplay writer. The free event will run from 5 to 7 p.m., and anyone who attends will receive a signed poster and the novel on which the film is based. The Old Southern Tea Room is inside The Vicksburg on Clay Street. For more information, call 601-880-9427 or e-mail paintapictureproductions@gmail. com.

Clinton school bus driver, ex-choir teacher face sexual abuse charges JACKSON, Miss. — A Clinton school bus driver and a former Clinton choir teacher are both accused of sexual abuse. Hinds County Sheriff’s Department Capt. Henry Glaze said 69-year-old Shepard Ray Havens of Bolton was arrested Wednesday. Havens was being held in the county jail pending an initial court appearance. Glaze said the girl is a fifth-grader at Eastside Elementary School. The incident occurred on Havens’ bus Friday. Glaze said the girl told her parents who contacted

Havens had been employed by the district for about three years. The former Clinton High School choir teacher has been indicted on eight felony counts of gratification of lust in Hinds County, prosecutors said. Hinds County Assis-

Chopper-maker says it Barbour honors 11 for distinguished careers did not hide crash report Medal of Service

By Emily Wagster Pettus The Associated Press JACKSON — Gov. Haley Barbour on Wednesday honored 11 people with the Mississippi Medal of Service, saying their work in business, education, entertainment, politics and the judiciary has made the state a better place to live. “Every one of them, in a very important way, has made a difference for our state,” Barbour said during a ceremony at the Woolfolk state office building in downtown Jackson. Some of the honorees, including retired state Court of Appeals Judge Mary Libby Payne, come from families who have lived in Mississippi for generations. One of them, former state Board of Education member Lucimarian Roberts of Pass Christian, grew up in Ohio and moved to Mississippi in 1975, when she was 45. Her family was transferred to the state for her husband’s military career. Roberts was the first black woman to chair the Mississippi Board of Education and to become president of the Mississippi Coast Coliseum Commission. Payne was among the first group of judges — and the first woman — on the Court of Appeals. She served from January 1995 through July 2001. Payne said she comes from a

Covington schools rape suit re-examined JACKSON (AP) — A federal appeals court in New Orleans will hear oral arguments in a lawsuit that claims a 9-yearold girl was checked out of a south Mississippi school six times by an unauthorized man who then raped her. The lawsuit filed in 2008 by the girl’s father and paternal grandmother said a Covington County elementary school failed to verify Tommy Keyes’ identity when he took the girl from campus in 2007 and 2008. The school district denies the accusation. A federal judge in Mississippi dismissed the lawsuit. Then, in August, a three-judge panel of the 5th U.S. Court of Appeals reinstated it.

These reports came from Benoit, Boyle and the Stanton subdivision within Cleveland.

and released Wednesday, the full 5th Circuit Court agreed to hear the school district’s appeal of the reinstatement. The court said oral arguments will be scheduled later. The lawsuit said the 6-foot2-inch Keyes allegedly signed the check-out sheet on one occasion as the girl’s mother but usually signed her father’s name. The lawsuit said Keyes “brutally and viciously raped, sodomized and molested” the girl each time he checked her out of school. Keyes brought the girl back to school and checked her in after the attacks, the lawsuit said. The girl is listed as Jane Doe in court records. The Associated Press, which generally

does not identify victims of sexual crimes, is not reporting her relatives’ names to protect the identity of the child. Keyes, 37, was convicted of sexual battery in the assaults and has been serving a 10-year prison sentence since 2009, according to the Mississippi Department of Corrections website. U.S. District Judge Keith Starrett dismissed the lawsuit in 2009, basing his ruling on the legal reasoning that the girl had no constitutional guarantee of protection at the school under the circumstances in this case. He also ruled that the education officials named as individual defendants in the lawsuit had immunity.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The manufacturer of a helicopter that crashed in Louisiana in 2009, killing eight people on the fatal trip to an oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico, defended itself Wednesday against accusations that it hid a damning internal report to conceal its liability. The owner of the helicopter, PHI Inc., wants U.S. Magistrate Karen Wells Roby to sanction Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. for hiding a report by one of its engineers that concluded that Sikorsky’s faulty design caused its helicopter to crash near Morgan City. Lawyers for PHI and the sole survivor in the crash allege that the report only came to light in March during a deposition of a company official, more than a year after

the report was completed in October 2009 and disseminated internally at Sikorsky. Those lawyers say Sikorsky should have handed over the report earlier and now should be sanctioned for not telling plaintiffs about the report. During a court hearing Wednesday, Sikorsky lawyers acknowledged making mistakes during the court proceedings but said there was no attempt to hide the report. “Right, wrong or otherwise, we have produced documents,” said Kevin Tully, a lawyer for Sikorsky. “We are doing our level best.” Roby took the case under advisement, saying the charges were serious and that she would not make a hasty ruling.

Retired N.O. archbishop dies at 98 NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Former Archbishop Philip Matthew Hannan, a paratroop chaplain during three World War II campaigns and head of the Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans from 1965 until 1988, has died at the age of 98 after a long illness. The archdiocese said Hannan died peacefully shortly after 3 this morning. Hannan was assigned to

New Orleans from Washington, where he had been auxiliary bishop since 1956. Two of his saddest duties were delivering eulogies for his friends the Kennedys — President John F. Kennedy, killed by a sniper in Dallas in 1963, and Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, shot in Los Angeles during his 1968 campaign for president.

The ignored group in fight for jobs Ten years after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and just less than a month after President Barack Obama’s big jobs speech to Congress, you’d think it would inspire unanimous support for at least one of the president’s proposals: to create big tax credits for companies that hire military veterans. Not so much. When it comes to our obligation, in Lincoln’s phrase, “to care for him who shall have borne the battle,” too often the line stops at the unemployment office. The White House says that as of June, the unemployment rate for post-9/11 veterans was 13.3 percent, 4.2 percent higher than the current national rate. The Obama administration’s Veterans Hiring Initiative would address that by giving employers a $2,400 tax credit for hiring an unemployed vet, and double that if the vet has been out of work for six months or more. In addition, firms that hire veterans with service-related disabilities would be eligible for a $4,800 tax credit, and double that

if the “wounded warrior” has been out of work for six months. Congress managed to contain its enthusiasm for the proposal. Republicans are leery of any program that would be paid for with higher taxes on the wealthy. Democrats are leery of any program that can be hung around their necks as “stimulus spending.” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., did say that the Senate would take up the bill, but he wasn’t saying when. Aside from political and budget considerations, there are other obstacles to getting more veterans into the civilian work force. Foremost is that there aren’t many jobs available for anyone, with 4 1/2 unemployed workers now available for every vacant job. And while it’s true that the military teaches leadership, teamwork and discipline, many of the jobless veterans fall into a demographic category that is having a tough time finding work. Having enlisted out of high school — sometimes because they couldn’t find a decent job in a changing

economy — they come out of the military at 22 or 23, often with combat experience but not work experience. In pre-recession, pre-globalization America, they could have expected to move into the construction trades or a manufacturing job. Not these days — not often, anyway. Some 125,000 of these young veterans have military-related disabilities. Some have lost limbs. Others struggle, to a greater or lesser degree, with post-traumatic stress disorder or traumatic brain injury, the “signature wound” of wars in which roadside bombs are the enemy’s weapon of choice. But here’s the thing: America didn’t go to war after 9/11. These Americans did. Yes, there’s the new GI bill that pays for college tuition. But what of those who can’t make it in college? What of the 10,000 post9/11 vets who are homeless? Talk about a national debt. This should be the deal: If you fight a war for us, we’ve got a job for you.

MODERATELY CONFUSED by Jeff Stahler

Lawmakers unlikely to make substantial PERS changes STARKVILLE — When Gov. Haley Barbour and Treasurer Tate Reeves first talked publicly in 2010 about concerns about the state’s Public Employee Retirement System in the wake of a critical study citing unfunded liabilities, state legislators in essence turned a deaf ear to discussions of reforming PERS. That after the two GOP state officials simply had the temerity to point out that over the last decade, the Mississippi Legislature raised state employee retirement benefits without providing a funding mechanism while simultaneously failing to set aside funds to meet future retiree health care benefits. Those actions cast some financial shadows over the state’s once-pristine retirement system. There was a reason legislators balked. Lawmakers simply don’t want the increased scrutiny that any discussion of PERS reform will have on the Legislature’s own enhanced retirement benefits. Since 1989, Mississippi’s 174 legislators and the lieutenant gover-

nor have enjoyed a preferential state retirement system that is 1 1/2 times more lucrative than that provided “regular” state employees like school teachers or highway workers. In a story this week, USA Today claimed that “Mississippi legislators get two pensions that on average add up to 165 percent of their salary.” The special legislative system — called the Supplemental Legislative Retirement Plan (SLRP) — allows legislators to pay into the Public Employees’ Retirement System at a rate 50 percent higher than for regular employees. At the same time,

the state contributes to the SLRP at a rate 50 percent higher for legislators than it does for regular state employees. “Regular” state employees are only members of PERS while legislators are members of both PERS and SLRP. The acronym SLRP — referred to as “slurp” by some aware of the dual system — has since its inception drawn criticism as a legislative perk that is unfair to regular state employees and other elected officials. In the 2000 session, lawmakers attempted to increase their retirement benefits from 1 1/2 times

better to more than 2 times better than PERS benefits. The provision, slipped into a bill in a conference committee, set off a firestorm of public criticism after it was revealed by the media. The Legislature was forced under intense public pressure to reverse itself in a special session and forgo the increased benefits. In the wake of that political nightmare, lawmakers avoided the subject of retirement during the 2001 session. But during the 2002 session, one provision of the 2000 legislative retirement improvement package came back to life in the form of House Bill 1148. On Page 56 of the voluminous bill, a simple deletion was made from Section 25-11-309 of the Mississippi Code: “However, in no case shall the aggregate amount of the retirement allowance from the Supplemental Legislative Retirement Plan and the Public Employees’ Retirement Plan on legislative service or service as President of the Senate (the lieutenant governor) exceed 100 percent of the average compensation.” In

other words, the law was amended to allow longtime legislators with 33 1/2 years of qualified PERS service to draw retirement benefits in excess of 100 percent of their average salaries. A 2010 Pew Center on the States study declared “serious concerns” about Mississippi’s management of the state’s long-term pension liabilities and says the state needs to improve how it handles state retiree health insurance and other benefit obligations — citing an unfunded state pension liability of $8 billion and an unfunded health insurance liability of $570 million. Some PERS reforms, primarily for new state hires, are necessary. But it’s unlikely in 2012 that state lawmakers will want to tackle major PERS reform any more than they did a decade ago because to do so puts a huge spotlight back on the politically gangrenous SLRP. •

CINCINNATI (AP) — Tyson Fresh Meats Inc. is recalling about 131,300 pounds of ground beef because a family in Ohio fell ill after eating meat produced by the company that was contaminated with E. coli, the U.S. Department of Agriculture reported Wednesday. The recall involves beef sold as Kroger brands at Kroger Co. supermarkets; Butcher’s Beef at Food Lion supermar-

kets; and generic beef sold to SAV-A-LOT, Spectrum Foods, Supervalu and the Defense Commissary Agency, company spokesman Gary Mickelson told The Associated Press. Tyson produced the affected meat at its plant in Emporia, Kan., on Aug. 23, the USDA said in a news release. Four children became ill after eating the meat with their family in Butler County, Ohio,

in the second week of September, said Butler County Health Department director Pat Burg. A 9-year-old child was hospitalized for about 10 days with severe diarrhea, said Burg, who declined to release the family’s name. Ground beef from the family’s home tested positive for the bacteria. No other cases have been reported in the southwest Ohio county, Burg said.

smart money Q: A few years ago I messed up my credit by not paying my credit cards bills on time, and sometimes not at all. I was having a tough time getting by financially, and I didn’t realize how it would affect my future. All day long I receive phone calls from different collection agencies harassing me about my credit BRUCE card balances. My question is, what can I do to stop these phone calls? — Jim, via e-mail A: There is no secret here. They are calling because you

still owe the credit card companies money. They gave you the merchandise on an agreement that you would pay the minimum monthly balance and you didn’t. The original credit card company wrote off the debt as a loss and sold the debt to other collection agencies. You can ask the collection agency that is trying to recover the debt if you can make smaller payments. Tell them the situation and that you can afford to pay only a smaller amount. Most of the time they will work with you, but the fact is you are still obligated to pay this debt.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel casts her vote on the eurozone bailout fund at the German parliament in Berlin today.

German lawmakers approve Euro fund in effort to stop spreading debt crisis BERLIN (AP) — German lawmakers today overwhelmingly approved expanding the powers of the eurozone bailout fund, a major step toward tackling the sprawling debt crisis, in a vote that also helped strengthen Chancellor Angela Merkel’s coalition government. The measure had been largely expected to pass the lower house of parliament, but a lively debate ahead of the vote reflected how divided Germans remain over their role as Europe’s economic power. Of 611 lawmakers present, 523 voted in favor, while 85 voted against it. Only three lawmakers abstained, meaning that Germany in the future will be guaranteeing loans to the bailout fund, the so-called European Financial Stability Facility, or EFSF, of up to (euro) 211 billion, rather than (euro) 123 billion so far. The vote had highlighted ten-

sions in Merkel’s center-right coalition that was strained by threats of dissent from many members who balked at the cost of propping up the eurozone’s strugglers. Opposition leaders had said going in that if Merkel’s coalition has to rely on their votes, it would be a sign that her strifeprone and increasingly unpopular government is finished. Yet after a night of intense lobbying, a majority of coalition members — 315 — voted in favor of the measure, enough to have ensured its passage even without opposition support. “This shows the clear determination of the coalition on this issue,” Rainer Bruederle, parliamentary leader of Merkel’s junior partner, the Free Democrats, told n-tv broadcaster after the vote. “We have made an important decision for Europe.” Yet Frank Schaeffler, also of

the Free Democrats, argued that bailout measures have worsened Greece’s economic situation. “Despite all arguments, the first bailout did not make the situation for Greece better, but worse,” Schaeffler said. The lawmakers — under close scrutiny from jittery markets — were voting on European leaders’ decision in July to increase the effective lending capacity of the fund to $595 billion and give it new powers, such as buying the bonds of shaky countries or lending money to governments before they get into a full-blown crisis.

NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks soared today after applications for unemployment benefits fell to a fivemonth low and the government raised its estimate of how fast the U.S. economy grew this spring. Germany also voted to expand the powers of Europe’s bailout fund, reassuring investors that lawmakers were working to get that region’s debt crisis under control. Bank, which would have the most to lose if Greece were to default, rose more than the rest of the market. JPMorgan Chase & Co. jumped 4.3 percent, the most of any stock in the Dow Jones industrial average. The Dow shot up 215 points in early trading. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index and the Nasdaq were also sharply higher. Several strong reports on the U.S. economy encouraged investors to buy stocks. First-time applications for unemployment benefits fell last week to 391,000. That’s the lowest level since April 2 and also the first time applications have fallen below 400,000 since Aug. 6. The big drop suggests that layoffs are decreasing. The government also increased its estimate of economic growth in the April-June period.

And Smith said some socalled “smart phones” are equipped with a device that allows them to “read” and steal credit card information from others, he said. “It’s getting easier and easier to steal information from people.”

On the flip side, prosecutors and criminal investigators can use information logged on cell phones to track the movements of a suspect. The phone just has to be “on”; it does not actually have to be used for phone or text message, he said. “We tell police and deputies, confiscate the cell phone when you arrest somebody,” Smith said. The Computer Forensics

Institute is a training site for judges, prosecutors and others in law enforcement to learn how to recover evidence from computers and computer systems. Prosecutors and district attorneys from Mississippi, Louisiana, Georgia, Tennessee and Alabama attended this week’s summit and hope to develop a closer working basis, said Smith, who was elected vice president of

the Mississippi Prosecutor’s Association earlier this year and is in line to be president in 2012. “Computer-related crimes cover broad areas and are often multi-jurisdictional,” he said. “We are looking to create an association that meets regularly, fosters cooperation with other prosecutors in computer-related crimes and helps us educate ourselves, as we try

to become more computer savvy.” Smith said he hopes also to develop a more comprehensive and user-friendly website for his office that would include a “10 most wanted” feature to publicize suspects in Warren County who have not shown up for scheduled court appearances. “I’d like to get that information out there,” he said.

Social Continued from Page A1. to their tweets, the 140-character-or-less messages sent to those who follow Twitter accounts. It can be a significant audience. Three-quarters of Americans 18 to 29 use social media, and one-third go online to connect with government officials, according to a survey by The Pew Internet and American Life Project. In Congress, 433 members of the House and Senate, or 81 percent, use Twitter, a recent survey of members found. Eighty-three percent, or 441 members, use Facebook. When it comes to tweeting, Republicans have an edge over Democrats in both chambers. In the House, 86 percent of Republicans tweet compared with 75 percent of Democrats. Forty-one of the 47 Republicans in the Senate tweet, as do 41 of the 51 Senate Democrats and both independents. Youth advocacy group leaders urge lawmakers to use social media for more than dry policy statements and talking points.

“We want to know how you’re feeling,” says Angela Peoples of Campus Progress, who advises members of Congress to be “genuine” in their social media usage. “If you’re frustrated with the process, share that with your social media tools.” Heather Smith, president of Rock the Vote, also pushes for authenticity. “Have a real conversation. Talk about the issues and engage them in authentic ways,” she says. “Be yourself, use the technology and people will write back.” For Emily Bartone, an 18-year-old student at George Mason University in suburban Washington, personalizing the message is key to connecting. “I want it to be something that’s going to be valid to me as an 18-year-old, as a new voter,” Bartone says. “They can talk and talk and talk about whatever their agenda is, but if they don’t personalize it to their viewers and their audience, then they’re not going to get anywhere with it.” Social media should be a catalyst for political dialogue,

Foxwell says. “It’s what I call a 360-degree conversation,” he says. “The ultimate you could have is that somebody gets an e-mail or e-newsletter from their representative. Then, they start following that representative on Facebook or Twitter, they ask a question and the representative responds back. Then you’re having a real experience, with a person.” Like other media, it can be misused. Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., was forced to resign in June after sending sexually explicit messages and photos to women who were following him on Twitter. The 2008 presidential election showed tangible benefits for a candidate who could engage young voters via social media. According to The Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement, 51 percent of eligible voters ages 18-29 cast ballots, up 2 percentage points from 2004, and most voted for Barack Obama, whose campaign used social media extensively.

Three years later, some millennials say lawmakers who have yet to become social media-savvy are missing an opportunity to connect with their generation. “We’re a very underappreciated group of voters, but the thing is, when we’re passionate, we’re a very powerful group of voters,” Bartone said. “When you’re not using social media to contact us, to really get to us, you’re really neglecting an entire group of voters that could really do well for you.” Sarah Richard, a 22-yearold graduate student at Clark University in Worcester, Mass., said members of Congress who aren’t using social media well are viewed as minor players, if not insignificant. “If you’re looking for the youth vote for any election coming up, you need to have social media on your side,” Richard says. Experts say lawmakers should develop specific strategies for targeting young people. Peter Levine, the director of The Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engage-

ment, says lawmakers should hire millennials from their own congressional district or state to contribute their own content as a way to connect with others like them. “If a staffer is writing the tweets for a member of Congress, say so,” Levine says. He also suggests that lawmakers or their representatives invite comments and responses and then reply to them to make the conversation interactive. Lack of a social media presence is a sign of being out of touch, says Matthew Segal, 25, the co-founder and president of Our Time, an organization created to bolster the voice of young Americans. The more out of touch the lawmakers seem, he says, the more millennials feel removed from the political process. “Members of Congress have an obligation to stay on top of new emerging trends and culture because they represent the American people,” Segal says, “and that’s what the American people are using and consuming every single day.”

This morning, Freddie Mac said fixed mortgage rates had fallen to historic new lows for a fourth straight week. The average on a 30-year fixed mortgage fell to 4.01 percent, the lowest since the mortgage-buyer began keeping recordes in 1971. The last time long-term rates were lower was in 1951, when most long-term home loans lasted just 20 to 25 years. On the unemployment scene, weekly applications for jobless benefits dropped 37,000 to a seasonally adjusted 391,000, the Labor Department said. That’s the lowest level since April 2 and the first time applications have fallen below 400,000 since Aug. 6. Some of the improvement was due to technical factors related to the seasonal adjustment of the data, a Labor Department spokes-

man said. The spokesman also said some states reported higher applications in previous weeks due to Hurricane Irene. As a result, the drop “may not be as encouraging as it looks,” said Paul Dales, an economist at Capital Economics. “Further falls will be needed before we can conclude a downward trend is under way.” Applications typically need to fall below 375,000 to signal substantial job growth. They haven’t been that low since February. The four-week average, a less volatile measure, fell to 417,000, the first drop in six weeks. Most recent evidence shows the job market is sluggish and the economy is weak. The economy expanded only 1.3 percent in the AprilJune quarter, the Commerce Department said in a separate report today. That’s a mild improvement from last month’s estimate of 1 percent growth. Most economists expect

Mrs. Davis had lived for the past 84 years in Vicksburg, where she was a homemaker and co-owner of Maw-Maws Resale Shop on Locust Street with her sister and mother for 30 years. She was devoted to her family and friends. She was of the Catholic faith. She was preceded in death by her husband, Simmons Davis; her parents, Joe and Frances Addie Sandifer Stevens; sisters, Tiny Hile and Dot Pogue; and a brother, Leonard “Red” Stevens. Survivors include her daughter, Veronica “Jeepy” (Alex) Shiers of Vicksburg; her son, Gordon “Rusty” (Yvonne) Haydel of Jackson; her brother, Gordon Stevens of Vicksburg; her sister, Dora

Templeton of Vicksburg; her granddaughter, Dean (Chuck) Anderson of Vicksburg; her great-grandchildren, Veronica Boyd, J. Boyd and Landen Anderson. Services will be at 11 a.m. Friday in the chapel of Glenwood Funeral Home with the Rev. Patrick Farrell officiating. Interment will follow in the Greenlawn Gardens Cemetery. Visitation will be Friday from 9 a.m. until the service at the funeral home. Pallbearers will be Jim Moore, Joe Stevens, J. Boyd, Sammy Smith, Butch Hile and Chuck Anderson. Honorary pallbearers will be Dr. Bob Ford, Dr. David Halinski, Artis Williams, Sherry Burse and employees of the Hometown Medical Group. Memorials are requested to St. Paul Catholic Church or Vicksburg Catholic School.

growth will pick up a bit in the second half of this year, but not enough to lower the unemployment rate. A forecasting panel for the National Association for Business Economics predicts total growth for 2011 will be just 1.7 percent. Consumers are reluctant to spend, with unemployment high, wages stagnant, and gas prices at about $3.50 a gallon. Consumer confidence plunged in August to recessionary levels, after lawmakers battled over raising the government’s borrowing limit and Standard & Poor’s cut its rating on long-term U.S. debt. That sent the stock market sharply lower, which hurts consumers’ ability to spend. Retail sales were flat in August, a sign the turmoil caused consumers to pull back. Anemic growth has prompted many businesses to slow hiring. Employers added no net jobs in August,

the worst showing in almost a year. The unemployment rate was stuck at 9.1 percent for the second month. Investors also worried last week that Europe won’t be able to prevent Greece from defaulting and worsening the region’s debt crisis. That sent the U.S. stock market down 6.4 percent, its biggest weekly loss since October 2008, in the midst of the financial crisis. If Greece defaults, that could destabilize other indebted countries, such as Portugal, Ireland and Italy. If European banks hoard cash to make up for their losses and stop lending to their U.S. counterparts, that could restrict credit in the United States and slow the economy. And a financial crisis in Europe would reduce U.S. companies’ exports and sales to the region. The slow growth and tur-

moil have raised fears that the U.S. economy could enter another recession. Some economists put the odds as high as 40 percent. The latest sign of a weak job market came Wednesday, when the Conference Board said its index of online helpwanted ads fell by 1.1 percent to 3.95 million. Openings have fallen by about 500,000 in the past six months, the group said, after jumping by more than 750,000 in the first three months of the year. Instead of hiring, companies are spending on new equipment.

Feds: Massachusetts man planned to blow up Pentagon, U.S. Capitol BOSTON — A Massachusetts man with a degree in physics was charged Wednesday with plotting to blow up the Pentagon and the U.S. Capitol using remote-controlled airplanes filled with explosives. Rezwan Ferdaus, 26, was arrested in Framingham after undercover federal agents delivered materials he had requested, including grenades, six machine guns and what he believed was 24 pounds of C-4 explosive. Federal officials said the public was never in danger from the explosives, which it said were always under control and closely monitored.

4 GOP senators travel to post-Gadhafi Libya WASHINGTON — Four Republican senators traveled to Libya today to meet with the nation’s new rulers, the highest-profile American delegation to visit the country since the ouster of longtime leader Moammar Gadhafi. The four lawmakers — John McCain of Arizona, Mark Kirk of Illinois, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Marco Rubio of Florida — planned to meet with members of the National Transitional Council, which is now governing Libya after the rebels forced Gadhafi from power. Gadhafi’s whereabouts remain unknown, but the new leaders suspect he is hiding in the southern desert of the North African nation.

Burns noted at the end of Wednesday’s hearing that Loughner had, for once, paid attention to the proceedings. “There’s reason to be optimistic he will recover and be able to assist in his case,” the judge said. “The court finds that measurable progress has been made.”

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — According to a new book, Chicago Bears star Walter Payton abused painkillers in retirement and became suicidal. In “Sweetness: The Enigmatic Life of Walter Payton,” author Jeff Pearlman says the Hall of Fame running back used a cocktail of Tylenol and Vicodin in retirement, kept tanks of nitrous oxide in his garage and even obtained Ritalin from a friend. Pearlman writes that Payton drew the suspicion of pharmacists and a warning from the police after visiting several drugstores to have a dentist’s prescription for morphine filled. Payton’s longtime agent, Bud Holmes, is quoted as saying “Walter was pounding his body with medication.”

Atlanta Braves left fielder Martin Prado sits on the bench after the Braves lost 4-3 in 13 innings Wednesday.

ATLANTA — Nearly an hour after one more loss in a historic collapse, Freddie Freeman walked through the Braves clubhouse still wearing his No. 5 uniform, as if he couldn’t believe he’d be taking it off for the final time this year. Indeed, the season is over. It’s going to take a long time to get over this one. With a September swoon that ranked right up there with all those playoff flops in the 1990s and 2000s, Atlanta frittered away a wild card that seemed a certainly just a few weeks ago. Instead, it’s St. Louis heading to the playoffs, while the Braves have all winter to figure out what went wrong. Was it that blown lead in St. Louis, which opened the door for a Cardinals sweep

Was it that potentially game-ending grounder Chipper Jones somehow lost in the lights at Florida, quickly followed by a homer that handed the Braves another excruciating loss? Was it the injury-plagued starters? The young bullpen that seemed to wear down? The punchless offense that totally disappeared in the final days? Whatever the reasons, it officially ended Wednesday night with closer Craig Kimbrel blowing a lead in the ninth inning and Hunter Pence coming through with a

two-out, broken-bat single in the 13th that gave the Philadelphia Phillies a 4-3 victory. But the collapse began long before the regular season finale. The Braves were a dismal 9-18 in September and ended with a five-game losing streak to finish a game behind the Cardinals. “We had our chances,” center fielder Michael Bourn said. “Not just this game. You can go weeks before.” The Braves were 101⁄2 games ahead of St. Louis before play on Aug. 26. They were still up by 81⁄2 games on the morning of Sept. 6. Instead of popping champagne for a second straight trip to the playoffs, they became the first team in major league history to squander a lead of at least eight games for a playoff spot See Braves, Page B3.

Flashes face undefeated Cathedral Eagles

brace for 5-0 Rebels

By Ernest Bowker ebowker@vicksburgpost.com This might be the perfect week for St. Aloysius to take on Cathedral. Stuck in a losing streak and needing to snap back into focus after a lopsided loss last Friday, playing their archrival might be the perfect remedy for what ails the Flashes. On the other hand, maybe it’s the worst week. St. Al gave up 163 yards and four touchdowns through the air six days ago against University Christian, and will certainly see more of the same on Friday. However, the Flashes respond to the challenge, Cathedral is coming. It’s up to them to find a way to slow down the Green Wave that’s fast approaching. “You sure hope it gives you focus. If we don’t play much better, they’re better than the last two teams we’ve played. So you hope they show up better,” St. Al coach B.J. Smithhart said. “If you can’t get up for this one, you can’t get up at all.” The teams enter Friday’s rivalry game in Natchez on opposite ends of the football spectrum. St. Al (1-5, 1-3 Region 4-1A) has lost two straight and been outscored 65-10 in those two games. The bottom fell out last week against University Christian,

Banged-up and reeling from their worst outing of the season, Porters Chapel might have liked to have seen a cupcake on the schedule this week to straighten things out. That’s not what’s on the schedule. PCA will head to Flora on Friday night to face Tri-County. The Rebels, who lost in the MAIS Class A championship game last season, are 5-0 this year and riding a streak of four consecutive shutouts. In that span, they’ve outscored their opponents 160-0. “They’re ranked No. 1 in single-A, played in the championship game last year and have a lot of those guys back. They’re ranked No. 1 for a reason,” PCA coach Wade Patrick said. “It’s going to be a big test for us. We’ve got to be ready. If not, it’s going to get ugly quick.” See PCA, Page B3.

‘Moneyball’ translates well to the big screen Sports movies are often a tough sell to studios. They don’t make a lot of money and just don’t look realistic enough. Besides, watching the real thing in high definition beats a sports movie anyway. Too often, they lapse into clichés and predictable emotionalism. Finally, there’s one that doesn’t. Brad Pitt’s “Moneyball” is an enjoyable cinematic diversion and a great movie made out of a book that definitely doesn’t lend itself to film like Buzz Bissinger’s “Friday Night Lights” did. In the Michael Lewis book and the film, Oakland Athletics general manager Billy Beane, portrayed ably by Pitt, totally junks the way that talent is evaluated and embraced the sabermetric principles of Bill James, who used mathematical and

statistical analysis analyze baseball stats. The film has its Hollywood touches. Beane’s family life isn’t dealt with much in the book, whereas in the film, it adds some humanity to his character. A composite character stands in for Paul dePodesta, who didn’t want his likeness or name used in the film and several other Beane deputies. Jonah Hill does a great job conveying the discomfort of an Ivy League economics guy amongst hard-

ened baseball folks. Manager Art Howe does not come off well in the film because audiences need some antagonist-protagonist back and forth. He’s depicted as adversarial, insubordinate and dismissive of Beane’s ideas. But the biggest disservice to the film’s subject material is that the viewer does not know why the A’s were able to win more games than they did in 2001, the year after Johnny Damon (Boston Red Sox), Jason Isringhausen (St. Louis Cardinals) and Jeremy Giambi (New York Yankees) departed in free agency. There were three reasons for Oakland’s success and all of them were in the starting pitching rotation. Guys named Barry Zito (now with the San Francisco Giants), Tim Hudson (Atlanta Braves) and Mark Mulder (retired).

Hudson was mentioned, but not the other two. Considering in 2002 that they were the best three pitchers in baseball and the Oakland rotation has not enjoyed that level of talent since, it’s little wonder the A’s have been unable to duplicate their success. While the movie makes the viewer think the team was nothing but a bunch of stiffs, shortstop Miguel Tejada won the 2002 AL MVP award. But those are minor quibbles. It’s hard to cram everything into a two-hour movie. The primary theme of the film is that league had one paradigm. The more you spend, the more you win. Beane’s way of evaluating talent seeped into the thinking of every franchise. The Boston Red Sox hired James as a special adviser and tried to hire Beane away from the A’s, whose small pay-

roll forced the team to tackle talent evaluation from an unconventional perspective. In the end, Beane changed the game. Every team has a math wizard crunching numbers now. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. But as the film vividly shows at the end when Scott Hatteberg’s walk-off home run that gave the A’s the American League consecutive wins record, ultimately, there are some things in sports that can’t be quantified on a spreadsheet. It’s something the film distills nicely into an entertaining two hours. •

Prep softball Warren Central crushes Germantown

Alexis Patterson went 3-for-4 with a home run, a double and a single to pace Warren Central to a 15-2 rout of Germantown on Thursday. Lawren Boolos had two singles and three RBIs. Karley Henson doubled, singled and added four RBIs.

College football LSU reinstates Jordan Jefferson BATON ROUGE, La. — A grand jury reduced charges against Jordan Jefferson to a misdemeanor for his involvement in a bar fight and the LSU quarterback’s suspension from the top-ranked Tigers was lifted soon after Wednesday night. Jefferson, who testified before the grand jury, is now charged with simple battery and faces maximum penalties, if convicted, of up to six months in jail and fines up to $500. His attorney, Lewis Unglesby, said his client “will never be convicted” if the case goes to trial. “There’s no evidence beyond a reasonable doubt to even think about it,” Unglesby said. “The grand jury’s standard is much lower than a reasonable doubt, so I guess they thought they met that standard by virtue of an accusation. That’s a sad thing.” Jefferson and reserve linebacker Josh Johns were initially booked with felony second-degree battery in the Aug. 19 fight. The grand jury decided Wednesday there was not enough evidence to bring any charges against Johns. Four men sought treatment at hospitals after the brawl. LSU coach Les Miles said both players would be welcomed back at practice Thursday, but that he was unsure if Jefferson would be ready to play Saturday. Miles stressed that Jarrett Lee, who has started in LSU’s first four games — all double-digit victories — will remain the starter for the foreseeable future. However, the coach added that he envisions Jefferson seeing action in most of the remaining games because of his ability to scramble and run the option.

Area Games MHSAA Region 6-4A: Raymond at Port Gibson 7:30 p.m. Friday

Records: Raymond (3-3, 1-1); Port Gibson (5-1, 1-1) Port Gibson: The Blue Waves seek to rebound after suffering their first loss of the season, 20-9 to Mendenhall last week in Port Gibson. Quarterback Silento Sayles paces the Blue Wave offense. He had 940 yards passing and 11 touchdowns going into the Mendenhall contest. Linebacker Tyler Doss averages 14.4 tackles per game to lead the Port Gibson defense. Raymond: The Chargers have been potent on offense, averaging 27.5 points per game. They opened the season, beating Hinds AHS 36-28 and bounced back last week to crush Richland 48-13 after dropping the previous two games to Crystal Springs (43-21) and Magee (38-14). Defensively, the Chargers have struggled, allowing 168 points in six contests.

MHSAA Region 4-1A: Hinds AHS at Dexter 7:30 p.m. Friday

Records: Hinds AHS (2-4, 1-3); Dexter (2-3, 2-1) Hinds AHS: After a brief two-game winning streak, Hinds AHS has dropped three in a row. Despite the slump, the War Dawgs are not out of the playoff picture in Region 4-1A — but they can’t afford another slip-up, either. Seven teams are within two games of each other in the standings. Hinds will also get a boost from the return of quarterback Ledarion Robinson, who missed one game and was limited last week by a knee injury. Dexter: The Bulldogs have won two in a row after an 0-3 start to pull into the top half of the region standings. The game with Hinds finishes a three-game stretch against teams in the bottom half, and a win is crucial to their playoff hopes. Quarterback Clifford Fernandez leads Dexter with 666 passing yards and six touchdowns, and has also rushed for 207 yards and two TDs. Coach’s quote: “If we can win three in a row — and we’re capable of doing it — we control our own destiny.” — Hinds AHS coach Michael Fields

MAIS District 3-A: Glenbrook at Tallulah Academy 7 p.m. friday

Records: Glenbrook (2-4, 1-3); Tallulah Academy (0-6, 0-4) Tallulah: The Trojans lost their sixth straight game last week, 35-14 to Amite, and have seen their goals change dramatically. After entering the season with playoff aspirations, Tallulah is now hoping for a strong stretch run to finish on a positive note. Glenbrook: Glenbrook built up a reputation as one of the MAIS’ top programs by winning the 2007 Class A championship and reaching the title game the following year. It has fallen off a bit since then, going 5-5 last season and now limping into Friday night’s game at Tallulah with a 2-4 record. The Apaches have lost four of their last five, including a pair of shutouts against Wilkinson Christian and River Oaks. Coach’s quote: “Our morale is not dead. The want-to is still there. Our team is one that’s waiting to beat somebody. Our team is a very good team when they decide to be. “ — Tallulah Academy coach Chris Busby

St. Al Continued from Page B1. last. Cathedral’s Caleb Upton has thrown for 1,411 yards and 17 touchdowns. In three seasons, the last two as a starter, Upton has 4,101 yards passing, 41 touchdowns and only 13 interceptions in 399 attempts. Thanks largely to its potent passing attack, Cathedral (5-0, 3-0) has scored at least 36 points in every game this season. One of the few times it’s been slowed down, oddly enough, was by St. Al. Last season, the Flashes played Cathedral tough in a 13-8 loss. It’s the fewest

points the Green Wave has scored in the last two seasons. In 2009, St. Al held Cathedral to just one touchdown and won 10-7 in overtime. Smithhart shrugged off that fact, however, saying that as good as Cathedral was last season — it won the Region 4-1A championship before losing in the second round of the playoffs — it is even better this year. “I think they’re more comfortable,” Smithhart said. “They’re undefeated. They seem to be getting all the breaks and they lead the

district. They’re a confident group, and they probably should be.” For St. Al to have a chance, it will not only have to cover Cathedral’s receivers, but also control both sides of the line of scrimmage. St. Al’s best offensive weapon so far has been running back Carlton Campbell, who has 569 yards and five touchdowns rushing. That’s good news for the Flashes. If they can get Campbell going, it will allow them to control the clock and keep Cathedral’s high-powered offense off the field.

On the flip side, the same linemen that are opening holes for the running game need to put pressure on Upton, force him into quick throws and help out the secondary. “It’s going to be key for the offensive line and defensive line to play well,” said St. Al’s Robert Arledge, who plays center and nose tackle. “Our defensive line is going to have to put pressure on the quarterback on every play. With the offensive line, the game is won or lost on us.”

Eagles, the game doesn’t mean anything in the grand scheme of things. Only district games count toward the playoffs, and PCA doesn’t play another one of those until Oct. 14 against Heidelberg. PCA is also pretty much assured of a playoff spot regardless of what happens down the stretch. The top four teams in each district qualify, and PCA has already beaten fifth-place Park Place and sixth-place Ben’s Ford. That has given Patrick some breathing room to heal an injured team. Two linemen who started the season opener either missed the

game against Benton or were playing hurt. That contributed to some of the protection problems and snap issues. “Guys are playing hurt. That hurts your mobility. You have to move guys around to positions they’re uncomfortable with. Then, when you have small numbers to begin with, it only makes it worse. We only have six linemen,” Patrick said. “Those guys are banged up, and that’s the bad part. Nobody’s coming in to spell them.” Although there’s bigger games ahead, and a slump behind, Patrick was quick to add that he wasn’t mailing

this one in. The chance to knock off a top-ranked team and make a statement — especially when there’s a history between the programs — is too good to pass up. PCA and Tri-County have frequently been in the same district over the years, but Tri-County has usually gotten the upper hand. The Rebels have won 17 of the 21 meetings between the schools since 1977. “This should be a fun game for our guys,” Patrick said. “You just go out, have fun and play hard. If you win, it would be the highlight of your career.”

knees near second base. In the Braves’ dugout, everyone else just stared at the field in disbelief. The Braves had this one. And they blew it. “I can’t fathom it,” Freeman said. Riding a strong showing by starter Tim Hudson and a two-run homer by Uggla, Atlanta went to the ninth with a 3-2 lead and its record-setting closer on the mound. Kimbrel already had 46 saves, more than any rookie closer in baseball history, and he needed just three more outs to ensure the Braves would head to St. Louis for a one-game playoff Thursday. But the hard-throwing Kim-

brel was all over the place, walking three. He also surrendered a hit and Chase Utley’s sacrifice fly. The stocky right-hander couldn’t even finish the inning, giving way to Kris Medlen. “My mind was rushing,” Kimbrel said. “Things started moving too fast. My head started moving too fast. My brain. I didn’t put it together. It was just too late.” Medlen had pitched only one game in the big leagues all year after coming back from Tommy John surgery, but he got the third out in the ninth and breezed through the 10th as well. Unheralded relievers Anthony Varvaro and Cristhian Martinez also pitched scoreless innings,

but the Braves’ hitters just couldn’t produce another run in time. Atlanta scored only seven runs in its last five games. In the 13th, Scott Linebrink (4-4) got himself in trouble with a one-out walk to Brian Schneider, a .176 hitter. Jimmy Rollins flied out to center, but Utley grounded a 3-2 pitch into right field to keep the inning going. Pence followed with a blooper to right off the fists, the weakly hit ball landing between first baseman Freeman and second baseman Uggla and barely making it to the outfield grass. But it was in just the right spot. Uggla slid out to get it but had no play anywhere.

PCA Continued from Page B1. The Eagles did not seem ready in last week’s 25-10 loss to Benton. They committed eight penalties, missed two field goals, allowed four sacks and had three bad snaps from center. It all added up to PCA’s second loss in three games. “The last couple games, it’s just been a lack of focus.

Rays celebrate wild card berth ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — A startling comeback on the final day of the regular season carried the Tampa Bay Rays back to the playoffs. Their chances of claiming the AL wild card in jeopardy, the Rays rallied Wednesday night from a late seven-run deficit to beat the New York Yankees 8-7 on Evan Longoria’s 12th-inning homer. Throughout an improbable run for a third postseason berth in four years, manager Joe Maddon and his players talked about the unwavering faith they had in themselves and the prospect of making up nine games on Boston in the wild card standings. They caught the Red Sox on Tuesday and remained tied heading into the regular season finale. Trailing 7-0 in the eighth inning, though, Matt Joyce conceded some doubt crept into his mind. “It’s hard to say no. For a little bit there, there was,” Joyce said. “But at the same time, you still have to go out there. And we’re still playing hard, we’re still playing to win, and you never know what’s going to happen in the game of baseball. ... What an unbelievable story this is. Unbelievable.” Evan Longoria capped the comeback by hitting his second home run of the game, hooking a drive barely inside the left-field foul pole in the 12th inning. Pinch-hitter Dan Johnson saved the Rays with a twoout, two-strike solo home run down the right field line in the ninth that made it 7-all. “At no point was I thinking, ’Oh, man, I have to hit this ball over the fence.’ It’s just one of those things that it

mlb just happened. I was up there trying to get on base,” Johnson said. “It was actually a pretty good pitch. It’s just, you know, the stars were aligned. I was able to get the barrel on it and keep it fair.” Longoria connected shortly after midnight, four minutes after Boston blew a ninth-inning lead and lost at Baltimore 4-3. If the Red Sox had held on, a one-game tiebreaker would have been played at Tropicana Field on Thursday. “It’s a good feeling knowing that one put us into the playoffs and not into a playoff game,” Longoria said. “So I’m just thinking about, ‘Wow, did this just really happen?’ ... Man, when I saw it clear the fence it didn’t seem real.”

Red Sox complete historical collapse Move over, Bucky Dent. Step aside, Bill Buckner. Make room, incredibly, for Jonathan Papelbon. The star closer is the stunned symbol of the latest Red Sox collapse. This one lasted a month and finally ended when there were no more games left to lose. “This is just maybe the worst situation that I ever have been involved in my whole career,” designated hitter David Ortiz said. “It’s going to stay in a lot of people’s minds for a while.” No team has blown a bigger lead in September — a ninegame margin through Sept. 3 — and missed the playoffs. Boston went 6-18 after that and did not win consecutive games at any point in the month.

Braves Continued from Page B1. in September. They had company a short time later when Boston did the same in the AL, but that was of little consolation in Atlanta. “This is tough,” All-Star catcher Brian McCann said. “This is one of the worst feelings I’ve ever had coming off a baseball field.” More than an hour after St. Louis routed Houston 8-0 to claim at least a share of the wild card, the Cardinals got it outright when Freeman hit into a season-ending double play. Freeman buckled over down the right-field line, burying his head in his hands. Dan Uggla, who was on base, crawled on his

Bluegrass world marks Monroe centennial NASHVILLE (AP) — Ricky Skaggs can imagine the look his old friend Bill Monroe might have had on his face if he were alive today to see the bluegrass world celebrate his legacy. “He would get out of the car and have that back straight as an arrow, and he’d have that hat on, and he’d be pulling it off and thanking people,” Skaggs said. “He’d really be happy about people celebrating his life.” As members of the International Bluegrass Music Association gather for their annual awards and conference in Nashville this week, Monroe and the message of his music are foremost on their minds. Monroe, the architect of bluegrass and a patron saint of country music, would have turned 100 on Sept. 13. He died in 1996 at the age of 84. Monroe is being honored with concerts in his memory and historical discussions this week, and he’ll play a prominent role during the Bluegrass Awards today as well. He left behind a legacy that’s more vital and thriving than ever and a diaspora of former players and acolytes who continue to spread his music today. Bluegrass, developed from roots deep in the soil of his native Kentucky, has spread around the world. It’s evolved with each generation that’s passed since that mythic “birth of bluegrass” concert in December 1945 at The Ryman Auditorium that featured the debut of pioneer-

Tech students take ’T’ on campus signs This college prank is brought to you by the letter ‘T’ and the students at Georgia Tech. The letter ‘T’ is disappearing from signs all over campus, costing the school more than $100,000 in repairs. Officials at the school in Atlanta are asking students to knock it off. Undergraduate President Elle Creel said the tradition of stealing the ‘T’ off Tech Tower began in the 1960s. But this new ritual involves taking a ‘T’ from everything from stadium signs to book return bins in front of the campus library. Student Katie Simmons said many buildings have been defaced, and a ‘T’ has already been stolen off a new building.

Testimony in Murray trial to focus on scene in Jackson’s bedroom LOS ANGELES (AP) — Prosecutors are calling a key witness today in an attempt to show jurors that Michael Jackson’s doctor delayed calling authorities on the day the King of Pop was found lifeless and was intent on concealing indications that he had been giving the singer doses of a surgical anesthetic. As the involuntary manslaughter trial of Dr. Conrad Murray enters its third day, testimony will keep jurors focused on events in Jackson’s bedroom during the frantic moments when efforts were made to revive the unresponsive pop superstar. The panel has already gotten a glimpse into the entertainer’s inner sanctum through photos and testimony, but today will hear from the first bodyguard to reach the room after Murray summoned for help. In testimony during a preliminary hearing earlier this year, Alberto Alvarez said Murray ordered him to stash away vials of medicine and an IV bag before calling 911. Jackson, his eyes open and mouth open, appeared to be dead, he said. The bodyguard’s testimony is crucial to prosecutors’ contentions that Murray delayed call-

ing 911 and was intent on covering up evidence that he had given Jackson propofol in his bedroom, a far cozier enviDr. Conrad ronment than Murray the surgical settings where it is normally administered. Alvarez’s testimony will likely be challenged by Murray’s defense attorneys, who Wednesday questioned Jackson’s head of security and the singer’s personal assistant about why they didn’t reveal certain details about the day Jackson died to police for at least two months. Defense lawyer Ed Chernoff asked Faheem Muhammad and Michael Amir Williams about whether they conferred with Alvarez before their interviews with detectives. Williams, who was Jackson’s personal assistant, said his interview with detectives had been delayed. He testified Wednesday that he received an urgent phone call from Murray on the day of Jackson’s death but wasn’t told to call 911. He called Muhammad, who then dispatched Alvarez to Jackson’s

After starting with a joke about an unpaid golf debt, Gill extended an invitation to join the Opry. The men had tears in their eyes and the crowd gave them a standing ovation. They will be formally inducted Oct. 8. Rascal Flatts is the top-selling country group of the last decade.

Constant correcting wears down wife’s happiness Dear Abby: My husband, “Will,” and I have been married three years. It’s a good marriage on most levels, but what causes most of our problems is the way he treats me. Will always assumes his way is correct. When I do something around the house, he comes up behind me and redoes it — including refolding the clothes. He even corrects the way I speak and pronounce words. It has gotten to the point that I have shut down. I don’t do much of anything around the house anymore because I figure it’s a waste of my time. Will gets angry and makes

TOMORROW’S HOROSCOPE

BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION If tomorrow is your birthday: Your earning potential continues to look encouraging in the next year, provided you don’t make any needless vocational alterations. You could lose out by making a careless switch. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Go out with friends and enjoy yourself socially, but don’t waste your money on frivolous pursuits. You’ll have a far better time getting value from what you spend. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Be careful not to take on more than you can comfortably complete. If you start a bunch of projects and finish none, there could be problems for a long time to come. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Maintaining a positive attitude not only boosts your disposition, it helps you be accepted by your peers. Harboring doubts or being moody causes you to worry about things that’ll never happen. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Find a way to nicely wiggle out of lending some money to a friend who has never repaid you for previous floaters. Your pocketbook could use the breather. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Hoping to impress someone by affecting pretentious mannerisms will only make you look phony. Relax and let your wonderful personality prevail. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Having an indiscreet conversation with a friend about things that should remain confidential could turn your secrets into common knowledge. Keep your own counsel. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Watch yourself so that you don’t snub someone or treat a person rudely just because you are envious of his or her achievements. You’ll get your chance to shine soon. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Strive to be decisive instead of wishy-washy or condescending, which only makes you look weak. A failure to take a firm position could both confuse and annoy your listeners. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — First seek out the proper instructions from an expert before using any unfamiliar tools or materials. You could get in trouble very quickly if you simply start throwing switches. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — If you have to associate with someone whom you know from experience is deceitful and underhanded, keep your guard up. People don’t easily change. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — So that you’re not construed as being rude and thoughtless, be mindful of any promises or appointments you’ve made. Oversights on your part will not easily be forgiven or forgotten. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — You’ve heard it before: “Unless you have something nice and complimentary to say about a co-worker, don’t say anything at all.” This never gets old, unlike rude or nasty behavior.

TWEEN 12 & 20

BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: I’m 13 and attend a private school. I’m here because my parents think that I’m safer here because there is much more violence in public schools. School started the day after Labor Day, and already I hate this school. I’m considered small for my age because both of my parents are not too tall. On the first day of school, a big guy cut in line in front of me during lunch break. The next day, he saw me and said, “Hey, shrimp, bring me a dollar tomorrow, or I’ll kick your tail.” Now every time he sees me, he threatens to physically harm me if I don’t do what he wants me to do. I talked with our principal. She told me to ignore him, and he will stop pestering me. I don’t like that answer. What should I do? I haven’t told my parents, because I don’t want them to fight my battles. — Nameless, Chicago, Ill. Nameless: Your principal is obviously not aware of the emotional pain that can be caused to a student by a bully. No student should ever be bullied, and any principal who doesn’t eliminate this problem immediately should be assigned to another position or perhaps even be removed from education. It doesn’t matter if the school is private or public. It is imperative that you discuss your concern with being bullied and insist that a parent/principal meeting be arranged immediately. Please contact me again after the meeting, and let me know how things are progressing. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service. E-mail him at rwallace@Copley News Service.

“good.” In fact, the way Will is treating you could be considered a form of abuse. By constantly belittling and correcting you, he is trying to assert control and shake your confidence in yourself. A husband who pouts and makes you feel bad when you tell him he’s making you miserable is a poor life partner. He may be insecure, overbearing or have OCD. Or he could be a potential abuser. Insist on marriage counseling to find out which, or get out of there while you still can. Dear Abby: Today I asked my wife of many years, “Do you still love me?” Her answer

was, “At our age, there is friendship at most.” I think that love has no age limit. Who is right? — Leon in Marco Island, Fla. Dear Leon: You are. There is no age limit on love. Love is love, whether you’re a teenager or an octogenarian, and if you’re lucky, even older than that.

Gas problem has everything to do with foods consumed Dear Doctor K: I pass a lot of gas. It’s bad enough when I’m alone, but it’s absolutely mortifying when I have to pass gas in public. What can I do? Dear Reader: It’s normal to have air in the digestive tract. Some gets there when you swallow it and some is produced during digestion. Your body normally produces up to two quarts of gas a day. This air moves in your digestive tract along with food and waste products. Eventually it needs to be expelled to prevent painful stretching of the stomach and intestine. Passing gas (flatulence) is normal and natural. But that doesn’t make it any less embarrassing when it happens in public — especially if the release of gas is accompanied by noise, a foul smell or both. There’s nothing you can do to prevent flatulence completely. But here are some tips to help you reduce the amount of gas you pass. The first step is to figure out which foods make you gassy and avoid them. Foods that are more likely to cause gas include: • beans, cabbage, brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower and peas; • oat bran and other highfiber foods; • carbonated beverages; • foods containing sorbitol (an artificial sweetener); • fructose, a natural sugar present in many fruits (including prunes, pears, grapes, dates and figs) and in many sweeteners; • fried and fatty foods, because they cause the stomach to empty more slowly, allowing gas to build up. Certain medicines also slow down the stomach and can cause more problems with gas. Common examples are antihistamines and calcium channel blockers. A drastic reduction in dietary sugars and some cutback in refined starches and wheat flour might also help. Make sure to eat and drink slowly — speed-eating makes you swallow more air. Eating more slowly can help with being overweight, as well. When you start eating a meal, your gut starts sending signals to your brain saying, “I’m getting full.” It takes about 20 minutes for these gut signals to register with your brain and for your appetite to wane. Let’s say you have a big plate with 3,000 calories of food — meat, potatoes and gravy. Your body might need only 1,000 calories, but if you eat all 3,000 in 20 minutes or less, you won’t feel full. Eating slower

makes it possible to be satisfied with smaller portion sizes. A product called Beano might help metabolize difficult-to-digest complex carbohydrates when taken before meals. And over-the-counter preparations containing the enzymes lipase, trypsin and amylase might reduce gassy emissions. Activated charcoal absorbs gas and might help cut down on your gassiness. Occasional use is not harmful. Additionally, Pepto-Bismol might reduce the odor of your gas. Prescription medications can also help. Talk to your doctor if you want to try one.
