WASHINGTON — More people signed up for Medicaid last year than at any time since the program’s inception, as the recession wiped out jobs and workplace health coverage. A report released today by the nonprofit Kaiser Family Foundation found that enrollment in the lowincome medical insurance program jumped to more than 48 million. With the
Nearly 6 million people have signed up for Medicaid since the start of the recession in December 2007, according to Kaiser.

New rules for offshore drillers set for release By The Associated Press
1791: Mozart’s opera “The Magic Flute” premieres in Vienna, Austria. 1938: After co-signing the Munich Agreement allowing Nazi annexation of Czechoslovakia’s Sudetenland, British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain praises the accord on his return home, saying, “I believe it is peace for our time.” 1954: The first nuclearpowered submarine, the USS Nautilus, is commissioned by the Navy. 1955: Actor James Dean, 24, is killed in a two-car collision near Cholame, Calif. 1960: “The Flintstones,” network television’s first animated prime-time series, debuts on ABC. 1962: Black student James Meredith is escorted by federal marshals to the campus of the University of Mississippi, where he enrolls for classes the next day.

Kim Hopkins, executive director of Vicksburg Main Street, sets out decorations along Washington Street Wednesday, in preparation for this weekend’s fall festivities.
Friday night tunes will kick off weekend By Manivanh Chanprasith firstname.lastname@example.org This week’s taste of cooler temperatures is just in time for annual downtown fall festivities, set to kick off Friday night with live music on Washington Street. Clear skies are expected, with highs in the mid-80s and lows in the 50s. This year will feature two new offerings — a free concert Friday
night downtown and a cycling event called Bricks and Spokes on Saturday. “We’re really excited to have it,” said Vicksburg Main Street Executive Director Kim Hopkins. “The turnout has been really good — especially since we’re going to have nice weather.” So far, 51 cyclists have signed for three routes — 50, 30 and 10 miles — that will span the city and county beginning on Washing-
ton Street and ending at Gordon’s Valley near Horizon Casino’s parking garage. “For our first year, that’s pretty good,” Hopkins said. “We’ve gotten a great mix of people from all over.” Cyclists can register the day of the race, from 7 to 8 a.m. “The response and support from Vicksburg have been really good,” See Fall, Page A9.
WASHINGTON — The Obama administration was set today to release new rules for offshore oil drillers as it prepares to lift a ban on deepwater drilling. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar was announcing the new rules, including some that address workplace safety, at a speech today. Interior Secretary The rules Ken Salazar are likely to include many of the recommendations made in a report Salazar released in May, including requirements that rigs certify that they have working blowout preventers and standards for cementing wells. The well and blowout preventer failed in the massive BP spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Salazar has said new rules must be in place before the Interior Department lifts its temporary ban on exploratory drilling. The ban will expire Nov. 30. Meanwhile, a company that owns and operates offshore drilling rigs asked a federal judge on Wednesday to throw out the moratorium. U.S. District Judge Martin Feldman didn’t rule after hearing arguments on Ensco Offshore’s bid to overturn the six-month drilling ban imposed July 12 by the Interior Department. The department issued an earlier moratorium, on May 28. It issued a second moratorium after Feldman overturned its initial May directive to halt approval of new deep water permits and suspend drilling on 33 exploratory wells.
Justice committee mulls ways to track jail numbers By Danny Barrett Jr. email@example.com Tracking the jail population in Warren County could become the job of a deputy jail administrator if the position is restored to the sheriff’s department’s budget, Sheriff Martin Pace said Wednesday.

tive, 16-month study of building a new jail and other systemic changes wrapped up in April. Super-
visors funded it up to $50,000 in the department’s budget for the 2010-11 fiscal year that starts Friday. An aggressive
search for land and financing for a new jail has been put off at least a year due to cost. Adding the function to a deputy jail administrator’s duties of managing shifts and other issues with the inmates makes the most sense if the job function falls under his department, Pace said at the conclusion of the third meeting of a local justice system committee of elected officials, judges and court personnel. Currently, the jail has a single administrator while the
deputy post was taken out of the staffing structure within the past decade, Pace said. Whether someone is hired to fill the job or if it’s folded into current staff responsibilities hasn’t been determined. Ideal dimensions of a new jail dictate a 350-bed facility on a 20- to 50-acre site, with capacity expandable to 650 beds in the future, according to the study conducted by Voorhis/Robertson Jus-

New judge assigned in Angola Five case ST. FRANCISVILLE, La. (AP) — A new judge has been assigned to preside over the trials of five inmates accused of killing a security officer during an escape attempt in December 1999, West Feliciana Parish officials said. An order signed earlier this week by state Supreme Court Chief Justice Catherine D. Kimball names retired Orleans Parish Judge Jerome M. Winsberg to hear the cases, West Feliciana Clerk of Court Felicia Hendl said. The order also terminates the appointment of retired Judge Dennis J. Waldron to hear the cases. Waldron held pretrial hearings involving all five defen-
An order signed earlier this week by state Supreme Court Chief Justice Catherine D. Kimball names retired Orleans Parish Judge Jerome M.

Waldron to hear the cases. dants this year and was presiding over the first-degree murder trial of Jeffrey Cameron Clark in St. Francisville when it ended in a mistrial in July. Waldron announced at an Aug. 13 hearing that he was asking the high court to relieve him of his appointment because of a family medical matter.
Clark, 50, and inmates David Mathis, 34; Robert G. Carley, 42; Barry S. Edge, 50; and David Brown, 37, are accused of firstdegree murder in the stabbing and beating death of security Capt. David C. Knapps, 49, in the educational building of Angola’s Camp D. The state is seeking the death penalty against the five. The Supreme Court last
year ordered that juries be chosen in St. Tammany Parish for trials in West Feliciana Parish. Assistant district attorneys from Jefferson and Caddo parishes are prosecuting the case. The inmates are defended by attorneys from New Orleans and the Baton Rouge area. Winsberg has a home in The Bluffs on Thompson Creek in West Feliciana Parish. He presided over the 2007 St. Francisville trial of St. Bernard Parish nursing home operators Salvador and Mabel Mangano, who were acquitted of negligent homicide and other charges in the deaths of 35 patients in Hurricane Katrina’s flooding.
A burglary was reported at 5 p.m. Wednesday in the 2900 block of Park Avenue, said Vicksburg police Lt. Bobby Stewart. A 42-inch RCA flat screen television valued at $900 was reported missing.

cut its social service block grant funding to the Mississippi Department of Mental Health by $3.3 million for fiscal year 2011. The agency serving Warren and Yazoo counties — one of 15 regional mental health centers in the state — absorbed $160,000 of the cut. Roark said WYMH was not cut as severely as other mental health centers because it only serves two counties, while others serve as many as a dozen. In
Warren County, the agency operates a group home on Wisconsin Avenue, where it also provides a variety of mental health and chemical dependency services to children and adults. A 17-unit apartment complex for adults with mental illnesses built last year about a half mile from its headquarters is nearly full and operating successfully, said WYMH Warren County Director Don Brown. Social service block grant
funding has been dwindling for the past three years, and Roark said he expects budget cuts to continue in the coming years. “To be in administration in mental health you’ve got to be an economist, too, and try to predict what your funding will be like years in advance,” he said. “All indications are that revenues will continue to decrease, possibly all the way to 2015. So, we expect there’s going to be more challenges ahead.”

Anti-immigration effort Ole Miss mascot options narrowed to three 1 suspect in custody the south ‘hysteria,’ attorney says in child’s death By Shelia Byrd The Associated Press JACKSON — Critics of a proposed anti-illegal immigration law in Mississippi called it an unfunded mandate for law enforcement and urged the state to avoid rushing to adopt a measure akin to one facing legal challenges in Arizona. One attorney for an immigrant advocacy group also called attempted moves toward an Arizona-styled anti-illegal immigration law a form of “hysteria” by those seeking scapegoats in an economic downturn marked by high joblessness. Patricia Ice, legal project director for the Mississippi Immigrants Rights Alliance, told a state Senate panel on Wednesday that illegal immigrants aren’t a drain on state finances. Ice said some of the state’s illegal immigrants pay income tax and all pay sales taxes. She said she’s helped some immigrants get tax iden-
tification numbers that can be used to pay income taxes. “We’re seeing a form of hysteria about immigrants. Because of the poor economy here, many of us have to blame someone,” Ice said during a hearing before the Senate Judiciary A Committee. The committee held hearings this week to examine a proposal similar to the law passed in Arizona that requires police while enforcing other laws to check the status of people if there is reason to suspect they are in the country illegally. Mississippi is among several states considering immigration-enforcement proposals modeled after Arizona’s. Senate Judiciary A Committee Chairman Joey Fillingane said the hearings were held before the session starts in January so more time could be devoted to the issue. He said the topic could be lost as lawmakers begin work on a state spending plan.
OXFORD, Miss. — The choices for a new on-field mascot to replace Colonel Rebel at the University of Mississippi have been whittled down to three. On Oct. 6, the mascot committee will release a poll including artists’ depictions of the Rebel Bear, Rebel Land Shark and Hotty Toddy. The old mascot, a caricature of an Old South gentleman, was retired from the sidelines in 2003, and its licensing as a university trademark ended this summer. Alumni, students, faculty, staff and season ticket-holders will be asked for their opinions on the concepts. The poll website will be www.mascot.olemiss.edu.

voters to the secretary of state’s office today in hopes of forcing a statewide vote on eminent domain. The measure is designed to let voters decide on a proposal to prevent the taking of private property to give to private developers. Opponents warn it could stifle some economic projects. The federation had faced an Oct. 6 deadline to submit at least 89,285 certified signatures to get the issue on the November 2011 ballot. In 2009, the Legislature by an overwhelming margin passed a bill similar to the Farm Bureau’s initiative. Republican Gov. Haley Barbour vetoed it, saying it could hurt the effort to recruit major manufacturers.

in the death of a Colorado woman whose body was found hanging from a tree on Saturday, Philadelphia police said. Police Chief Dickie Sistrunk said an autopsy report shows the death of 34-year-old Donna Giao Dao of Colorado Springs, Colo., was “consistent with suicide.” The body was spotted about 6:30 a.m. Saturday by a passing motorist. “Her body was hanging over the ditch about 20 feet up in the tree on a nylon rope,” Sistrunk said. Sistrunk said that Dao had apparently come to Neshoba County from Tuscaloosa, Ala., where she had been working in a nail salon, to gamble at Pearl River Resort. Sistrunk says he was contacted by her employer who had heard about her death in news media reports. Sistrunk said members of Dao’s family in Colorado told investigators that they had not seen Dao in more than three months.
NEW ORLEANS — New Orleans police have arrested one of two men wanted in the shooting death of 2-year-old Jeremy Galmon. Police said Galmon was shot in the head as he sat in a parked car on Sunday. Jamiron Pollard, 28, was arrested at a home in eastern New Orleans Wednesday afternoon. He was booked with one count of first-degree murder, because the victim was younger than 12. His cousin, 21-year-old Bernell Pollard, remains at large. He is also facing a count of first-degree murder. Police said the toddler was sitting in a car with his grandmother when someone opened fire on another car nearby. Galmon was hit by a stray bullet and died later at a local hospital.

Why ‘tax the rich’ gets no support What came over U.S. Rep. John Boehner of Ohio? The House minority leader suggested a compromise with Democrats on taxes. Within a matter of seconds, it seemed, the knives were out. His own party ripped him, and the White House fell back on that tired political cliche about “the failed policies that got us into this mess.” For a scary moment, it sounded like a rerun from the 2008 campaign — Dems and Repubs unwilling to budge. Nobody in this impasse can claim the high road on fiscal responsibility. Over the last decade, Republicans and Democrats alike have gleefully spent trillions of dollars they never had. Best course for now? Extend the tax cuts by one year — all the tax cuts. Then, strike a grand bargain based on the recommendations of President Obama’s deficit commission, due out shortly after the Nov. 2 election. With any luck, a wake-up
call at the ballot box will bring financial discipline back into style on Capitol Hill. If Obama’s finding his “tax the rich” rhetoric going nowhere, it’s because nobody, rich or poor, trusts Washington taxaholics to find a responsible use for any additional revenues they might obtain. Example: The president is still talking about more stimulus spending. He should know by now that taxpayers are sick of being treated like ATMs. Moreover, Americans understand that higher taxes involve unhappy economic consequences, cutting into job creation and consumer demand. Business is reluctant to hire and invest for many reasons, but not least is a deep wariness about the federal government’s unsustainable borrowing and spending. Bring on the deficit commission. Established by executive order and formally known as the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform, this public-private group is charged
with plotting a course to a balanced budget by 2015. It’s also supposed to figure out how to close the gap between projected revenues and entitlement obligations such as Medicare and Social Security. Assuming at least 14 of the commission’s 18 members agree, congressional leaders have pledged to bring their recommendations to a vote. It’s not a given, however, that the deficit commission will be able to reach agreement. But if it does, after an election where voters loudly demand a new direction, Washington will have the catalyst this nation badly needs for a deal to attack the crippling federal debt. Fiddling with tax policy right now risks further disruptions for employers already buffeted by Washington. After the Nov. 2 election, and after the commission finally speaks, fixes to taxation and federal spending could give Americans a long-range solution to what seems like insurmountable burdens.

MODERATELY CONFUSED by Bill Stahler
The American dream is still alive, but in peril There’s a lot of rage out there in the electorate, as everybody knows, but I think some of it is displaced fear that working hard doesn’t guarantee prosperity anymore. This was expressed to President Barack Obama’s face in his televised town hall by a recent law school graduate who told him: “Like a lot of people, I was really impressed by your campaign and message ... That inspiration is dying away. It feels like the American dream is not attainable to a lot of us.” Most media outlets reporting on the U.S. Census incomes report last week focused on the deplorable fact that one in seven Americans — 43 million — lived below the poverty line in 2009. But the Wall Street Journal had the right headline to explain the generalized experience of average Americans: “Lost Decade for Family Income.” The median income of American families in 2009 was $49,777, below what it was in 1997. The story of America is that, except during recessions, incomes rise. The median family income was $40,108 in 1967. It was $43,758 in
Instead of figuring out together what to do, politicians would rather blame each other and stick to their ideologies.
KONDRACKE 1977; $47,071 in 1987 and $49,309 in 1997. It got up to $52,338 in 1999. It’s been falling back ever since. A Pew Research Center poll this year found that 64 percent of Americans pronounced themselves optimistic about their family’s life, 61 percent about America’s future and 56 percent about the U.S. economy over the next 40 years. But those numbers are down from 81 percent, 70 percent and 64 percent in 1999. Short-term attitudes are much more downbeat. A Gallup poll this month showed that 84 percent think we’re still in a recession and 47 percent think it’s not improving. Instead of figuring out together what to do, politicians would rather
blame each other and stick to their ideologies. Democrats want more government-funded stimulus packages and continued tax cuts for the middle class even though the national debt is nearing 100 percent of GDP, the highest since World War II. Republicans want to extend tax cuts for everyone — especially the wealthy — even though the census numbers show that income disparities are as great as they’ve been since the 1920s, and growing. Cutting domestic spending would add to the woes of those at the bottom. So what to do? There ought to be both long-term and short-term solu-
tions. One (relatively) short-term step might be creation of a national infrastructure bank that would use its lending authority to encourage private investment in roads, railways, air traffic control and waterways. The American Society of Civil Engineers estimates that the country needs to spend $2 trillion to bring its infrastructure up to acceptable standards. Governments can’t afford such outlays, but well-structured bank loans might unleash the trillions that private companies are sitting on — and reduce the unemployment rate. For the long-term future, the only certain answer is to vastly improve U.S. education so that Americans can compete with foreigners who work for lower wages. The College Board’s just-issued “Education Pays” report showed that the median income for Americans with bachelor’s degrees in 2008 was $55,700; for those with associate degrees, $42,000; for high school graduates, $33,800; and for those without a high school degree, $24,300, a mere $2,000 above the U.S. poverty line. The Obama administration, fol-
lowing the lead of the George W. Bush administration, has made dramatic strides toward reforming elementary and secondary education, with nearly 40 states signed on to the administration’s challenge to raise standards in a “race to the top.” Obama has tried to make college more affordable, but his $12 billion “race to the top” proposal for higher education was converted by Congress to a $2 billion program to help workers dislocated by trade. Forty-seven nations have joined a program known as the Bologna Process to implement common standards for what university graduates should learn. Nothing like that exists in the United States. If Americans are beginning to think hard work doesn’t guarantee prosperity anymore, the only answer is more hard work to invest in both physical and human resources — and a government that isn’t caught up in partisan paralysis.

The Labor Department said today that first-time claims for unemployment benefits fell more than economists had predicted last week. Applications are still at levels that indicate employers aren’t necessarily ramping up hiring, but at least the pace of firings seems to be slowing. The Dow jumped 78.94, or 0.7 percent, to 10,913.99 in morning trading. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 9.27, or 0.8 percent, to 1,154.00, while the Nasdaq composite rose 15.03, of 0.6 percent, to 2,391.59.

NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks are ending a strong September with more gains today after new reports on unemployment claims, economic growth and manufacturing topped expectations. Major indexes have been surging all month on signs of incremental improvement in the economy, which have reduced worries the country will fall back into recession. The Dow Jones industrial average rose nearly 80 points in morning trading. It has risen 9 percent this month, which puts it in line for its best September performance since 1939.

Q: My girlfriend and I have been living together for 15 years and do not want to get married. I have a simple question regarding this BRUCE and wills. We have a cohabitation contract.

WASHINGTON — The independent commission that oversees the Postal Service is preparing to deliver its verdict on a request for a 2-cent increase — to 46 cents — in the cost of mailing a letter. The Postal Regulatory Commission plans to reveal its decision on requested rate increases at a news conference today. In July the Postal Service proposed raising first-class postage from 44 cents to 46 cents as part of a strategy for dealing with a deepening financial crisis. The Postal Service lost $3.8 billion last year and is on track to lose $7 billion this year and next. With mail volume continuing to decline in the Internet age and the economic meltdown reducing advertising mail, the Postal Service is seeking other

in Seattle A: There have been many court cases having to do with palimony. The best advice I can give you is to get a competent attorney. Whether one could give a right to assets by contract and then take them away with a will is something that I would not consider trying to find a solution for. Don’t assume that your “contract” will suffice. You should have a legal opinion. If necessary, update your arrangement with your girlfriend. •

cranes. It’s part of a series of contracts Gulf Coast shipbuilders are receiving for Katrina repairs. Funds from the program go to yards that held Navy contracts at the time of the storm. The work at Halter Marine in Pascagoula is expected to be complete by July 2012. Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding secured a $12.2 million contract add-on for upgrades to its Pascagoula, Gulfport and New Orleans yards. Officials said the upgrades should result in cost reductions in current and future Navy shipbuilding contracts and improve the ability of the shipbuilders to withstand damage from potential hurricanes or other natural disasters.
AIG reaches deal to repay government NEW YORK — AIG, which became a lightning rod for criticism over government bailouts, said it reached a deal to repay billions of dollars it received during the credit crisis. The plan announced today could return a profit to taxpayers who footed the bill for AIG’s near collapse in September 2008. The announcement provides a clearer strategy to repay AIG’s debt to the government. Until this point, AIG was primarily repaying the government as it took in money from asset sales, but there was no timeline for repayment.

Secret video of sexual encounter linked to Rutgers student’s suicide PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) — The death of a Rutgers University freshman stirred outrage and remorse on campus from classmates who wished they could have stopped the teen from jumping off a bridge last week after a recording of him having a sexual encounter with a man was broadcast online. “Had he been in bed with a woman, this would not have happened,” said Lauren Felton, 21, of Warren. “He wouldn’t have been outed via an online broadcast and his privacy would have been respected and he might still have his life.” Gay rights groups say Tyler Clementi’s suicide makes him a national example of a problem they are increasingly working to combat: young people who kill themselves after being tormented over their sexuality. A lawyer for Clementi’s family confirmed Wednesday that he had jumped off the George Washington Bridge last week. Police recovered a man’s body Wednesday afternoon in the Hudson River just north of the bridge, and authorities were trying to determine if it was Clementi’s. The lawyer has not responded to requests for comment on whether Clementi was open about his sexual orientation. Clementi’s roommate, Dhraun Ravi, and fellow Rutgers freshman Molly Wei, both 18, have been charged with invading Clementi’s privacy. Middlesex County prosecutors say the pair used a webcam to surreptitiously transmit a live image of Clementi having sex on Sept. 19 and that Ravi tried to webcast a second encounter on Sept. 21, the day before Clementi’s suicide. A lawyer for Ravi, of Plainsboro, did not immediately return a message seeking comment. It was unclear whether Wei, of Princeton, had retained a lawyer. Collecting or viewing sexual images without consent is a fourth-degree crime. Transmitting them is a third-degree crime with a maximum prison term of five years. ABC News and The Star-

Acquaintances at a loss over UT gunman’s motive AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — He was the son of a veterinarian, the product of a middle-class neighborhood where families tend to their yards and keep to themselves. That has left some who knew him at a loss about why Colton Joshua Tooley, three months past his 19th birthday, tried to shoot up the University of Texas campus.

A day after Tooley opened fire with an AK-47 at the sprawling campus and ultimately used it to kill himself, some friends and acquaintances said he showed no signs that would have predicted such violence. “He never seemed weird or like he would end up doing that,” said Devon Sepeda, a UT student who graduated from Austin’s Crockett High

Continued from Page A1. Hopkins added. “We’re hoping this will turn out to be a big fundraiser for Main Street.” The weekend will begin at 7 Friday night at Riverstage Plaza, at Crawford and Washington streets, as variety group Rewind and bluesman Big Joe Shelton crank
out tunes. Admission is free. Children’s activities will be available for a small fee. Festivities will continue Saturday at 8 a.m., when the 28th annual Old Court House Flea Market begins at the Old Court House Museum on Cherry Street. Activities along Washington Street
start at 10. “It’s going to be a beautiful day,” said museum director Bubba Bolm. “This year, we have about 140 (crafts) booths and 15 food booths. Organizations like Paws Rescue will be moving animals for adoption. The Boy Scouts will be selling funnel
cakes. Local churches and schools will be out selling to raise money for their organizations.” Last year, the event attracted about 3,000 people from all over the country, Bolm said. On Washington Street, downtown merchants will
display their wares. “We’re letting our merchants and our restaurants be our vendors,” Hopkins said. “We’ll have a good crowd this year.”
Jail caps of $700 on attorney fees on such cases. About 10.5 percent of the inmates in Warren County Jail this week have been incarcerated six months or more, including two for violating probation. The percentage is down from a list generated during the committee’s July meeting, when 22 percent had spent at least six months waiting to be tried. No money appeared in the city’s budget for helping pay
for a jail, though Mayor Paul Winfield made an initial overture, saying, “the door is open” for the two local governments to finance it. Winfield, an attorney, also said the judges were ultimately responsible for speeding up criminal cases. “Judges run the dockets,” Winfield said. “They have the ultimate say.” Municipal Court Judge Nancy Thomas, making a first appearance at a justice
committee meeting along with Winfield, said a “culture of deterrence” needs to be built throughout the entire criminal justice system in Vicksburg and Warren County. A change last week to city ordinances governing municipal court fines is expected to bring about higher fees, with a new list of fees expected to tack on specific charges for additional crimes and court requests. The justice system commit-
tee is set to meet again Oct. 26. Warren County’s five supervisors attended Wednesday’s session, as did Circuit Judge Jim Chaney, Kenya Burks, the city’s chief of staff, District Attorney Ricky Smith, County Administrator John Smith, Youth Court Administrator Rachel Hardy and Warren Yazoo Mental Health executive director Don Brown.

It’s also been assigned a major role under the new health care law, which expands the program to cover an estimated 18 million additional low-income adults starting in 2014. For now, states are cutting Medicaid to try to curb costs. Nearly every state — 48 in
all — took some action to limit Medicaid spending last year, and most plan more cuts next year. Although they didn’t reduce eligibility, Kaiser found that states took steps to restrict the scope of coverage: • A record 20 states placed restrictions on benefits, and 14 plan new restrictions next year.

More than 10M tricycles, high chairs, toys being recalled by Fisher-Price WASHINGTON — FisherPrice is recalling more than 10 million tricycles, toys and high chairs over safety concerns. The Consumer Product Safety Commission said today that two of the products being recalled involved injuries. In the recall of about 7 million Fisher-Price Trikes and Tough Trikes toddler tricycles, the agency is aware of 10 reports of children being hurt. Six of them required medical attention. The trikes — some of which which feature popular characters like Dora the Explorer and Barbie — have a protruding plastic ignition key near the seat that children can strike, sit on or fall on, leading to injuries that the commission said can include genital bleeding. Fisher-Price is also recalling more than 1 million Healthy Care, Easy Clean and Close to Me High Chairs, after 14 reports of problems. Seven children required stitches, the commission said. The pegs on the back of the high chairs can be used to store the tray, but children can fall on them, resulting in cuts and other injuries.

VWSD fined $250 for ineligible player
The Vicksburg Warren athletic department was fined $250, and hit with several other penalties, because of Vicksburg High’s use of an ineligible player in four games this season. The penalties handed down Tuesday include a reprimand from the MHSAA for VHS head coach Alonzo Stevens, probation for Vicksburg’s football team for the rest of the season, and the forfeiture of all games the player participated in. Since Vicksburg lost all four of the games the player participated in, its win-loss record will not be affected by the forfeitures. The losses included the Red Carpet Bowl against Gulfport, a home game against Richwood, La., and road games at Tylertown and Lawrence County. The fine was originally $1,000, but Vicksburg Warren athletic director Lum Wright Jr. said it was reduced on appeal. Wright said the smaller fine was paid Wednesday. “They reduced it from $1,000 to $250 because we’ve been accreditable in the past,” Wright said. Stevens self-reported the violation when it was discovered last week.

Vikings face must-win scenario Gators prep football
By Ernest Bowker firstname.lastname@example.org
In the muddled and dangerous world of Region 2-6A, nothing is safe. Playoff hopes can be dashed by Week 3 of the region schedule, and most games count double. Five teams are tightly clustered behind region frontrunner Madison Central, all fighting for four playoff berths. As the season progresses and they beat up on each other, head-tohead tiebreakers become vital in deciding those spots. That makes Friday night’s matchup between Warren Central (1-4, 0-1 Region 2-6A) and Greenville-Weston (3-2, 1-0) a must-win for both
On the air Friday, 7 p.m. 105.5 FM WC at Greenville-Weston teams. “What Greenville has done is put themselves in that bracket to push for the playoffs, and they’re a legitimate contender,” WC coach Josh Morgan said. “It’s a spot we’re both after. It’s very important that you win that head-to-head matchup.” It’s not just important for WC, it’s essential. The Vikings lost last
week to Northwest Rankin, another of the five teams clustered in the middle of the pack, and have a date with Madison Central looming next week. Although the schedule eases up a bit after they face Madison, a loss to Greenville would put the Vikings in a deep hole. “If we want to make a push for the playoffs, this is a must-win for us. They’re a good team and playing well,” Morgan said. A key for Warren Central will be finding some sort of spark on offense. The defense forced five turnovers against Northwest, but the offense only turned one of them into points. Three drives that started in Cougar territory failed
to net a single first down. Two others ended on downs when the Vikings failed to convert on fourth-and-1 around the Northwest 35-yard line. Part of the reason for the slump was the absence of running back Shon Jackson. The senior had more than 400 yards in WC’s first four games, but tore his ACL against Natchez. Morgan said Jackson planned to practice with a knee brace this week and there’s a slim chance he could play Friday night. “On offense, we’re still looking for an identity. It’s very important we put a complete effort together, and we haven’t done that by any means,” Morgan said.
Slocum pays visit to Vicksburg PGA pro returns to home course for nine holes By Steve Wilson email@example.com Heath Slocum had been in this same situation, this same location, many times on No. 9 at Vicksburg Country Club. He put just the right amount of air under his chip and the ball went true, glancing off the flagstick and barely lipping out. All he could do was smile and acknowledge the cheers for a near-stellar shot. The PGA pro, who spent much of his upbringing at the course where his father Jack Slocum was the longtime club professional, made his annual Vicksburg visit as he’s in town in nearby Madison for the Viking Classic, which starts today. “It’s a lot of fun to come back and see old friends, meet some new ones and have a good time,” Slocum said. “This is one of the stops I look forward to every single year. I had a blast.” The course is still as he remembered it: tough as nails and as unforgiving as any. “I think the greens get smaller and smaller every year,” Slocum said. “It’s definitely tight, the greens are tiny, but it’s nice to get out and have a nice round.” Slocum comes into the final stretch of the PGA season ranked 49th in the FedEx Cup standings, with winnings of $1,644,865. He has one top three finish this year and four top 10s, just a slight downtick from last year, when he won the biggest tournament of his career, The Barclays, in New
to battle Cougars By Ernest Bowker firstname.lastname@example.org Last week against Grenada, Vicksburg High had its best offensive performance in nearly two seasons. Unfortunately, it also endured the latest in a long line of shoddy defensive games. The winless Gators (0-5, 0-1 Region 2-6A) will try to find a happy medium when they hit the road Friday night to play undefeated Northwest Rankin (5-0, 1-0). Vicksburg is coming off a 54-45 loss to Grenada in which quarterback Cameron Cooksey threw for Friday, 7 p.m. 370 yards 1490 AM and four Vicksburg at touchdowns and NW Rankin receiver Alvin Stamps caught five passes for 207 yards and two scores. The yardage totals for Cooksey and Stamps were both the third-highest in Warren County history in their respective categories, and helped the Gators score more than 40 points for the first time since beating Ridgeland 42-0 on Halloween night 2008. The defense, though, continued to struggle. Grenada shredded it for nearly 500 yards and became the eighth opponent to score more than 40 points against Vicksburg in the last two seasons. “We play in spurts, and it seems like at times we have a mental lapse,” VHS coach Alonzo Stevens said. “The coaching staff has done a great job. We have yet to be surprised by anything anyone has tried. At a crucial point in the game you’re going to have to rise and fight or accept that you’re going to lose. Right now, we haven’t arrived at that point where we’re going to fight.” Despite the disparity in wins between Vicksburg and Northwest Rankin, the teams might be closer than they appear. Three of Northwest’s wins have been by a touchdown or less, and last week’s 24-13 win over Warren Central was sealed by an interception return for a touchdown late in the fourth.

golf Jersey to put him in the thick of the chase for the FedEx Cup. “Obviously, it could always be better or it could be worse,” Slocum said. “But it’s been overall a good season. I’ve had some chances to win some golf
tournaments and I’ve got some tournaments still left.” As for the Viking Classic, Slocum knows the recipe that will determine his success in front of local fans. Never a longball specialist off the tee, Slocum knows he just needs to keep drives in the fairways of Annandale Golf Course and use his
superior short game on a course playing fast and firm. “I’m obviously going to have to drive it straight, which is something I do well,” Slocum said. “But it all comes down to putts. All of the tournaments I’ve ever won, I was making putts, and that goes without saying for everyone.”
Peterson is deserving of college football’s highest award LSU junior cornerback Patrick Peterson is a lot of things. He is: • A shutdown corner who takes away whatever half of the field he lines up on. • A punt returner with gamebreaking speed and an extra gear in the open field that allowed him to take two returns to the house already this season. • A gigantic reason why the Tigers, despite having no identity on offense and thrashing about like a wildebeest in quicksand, are still undefeated. He’s the best draft-eligible defensive back prospect and will likely be one of the five top picks in this year’s NFL draft. But best college football player in the country?
POST SPORTS EDITOR
He just might be deserving of the Heisman Trophy and be the second defensive player to win it since Charles Woodson in 1997. Just imagine LSU without Peterson. We’ll just say it wouldn’t be too pretty. Despite having one of the best defenses in the SEC, the Tiger offense has sputtered more than a 1970 Chevrolet Vega running on fumes.
Quarterback Jordan Jefferson has gone three consecutive games without eclipsing the century mark in passing, something that Arkansas signal-caller Ryan Mallett did after one quarter against defending national champion Alabama. While Jefferson’s receivers, who have more drops than a cell network in the Gobi Desert, and his offensive line share the blame, the junior hasn’t exactly set the world on fire with his decision making or touch. Enter Peterson. As he showed in a win over Mississippi State, taking a step on his island is a deadly business. Quarterback Chris Relf threw a pass too late and too short to his target, Arceto Clark. Peterson positioned
himself perfectly and kept tipping the ball to himself until he could rein it in and go 60 yards to set up an LSU score. Or the 60-yard punt return for a score against West Virginia. Peterson showed that given a chance to make people miss in the open field, he’s a big-play guy who take it to the house. But let’s be frank with what the Heisman Trophy is: the best quarterback or running back in the nation award. The last wide receiver to win the award was Desmond Howard in 1991. With more spread offenses popping up, few wide receivers are going to have a shot at the trophy with teams distributing the ball in the passing game amongst four or five wide receivers. Defensive players
face an even steeper uphill climb. Just ask Ndamukong Suh. So Peterson will definitely be running into the wind when it comes to the stiffarming trophy. What Peterson does, taking away half of the field, doesn’t show up on any stat sheets. He’ll have to hope for a couple more big returns and need his team to beat SEC rivals Alabama and Florida for him to have a chance. But if the award is intended for the best player in college football, why not Peterson? •

MLB Lowe leads Braves past Marlins, 5-1 ATLANTA — Bobby Cox wants to make sure the attention being paid to his final regular-season games as Atlanta’s manager takes a back seat to the Braves’ pursuit of their first playoff berth since 2005. Cox deflected questions about his retirement after the Braves beat the Florida Marlins 5-1 on Wednesday to complete a threegame sweep behind Derek Lowe’s fifth win of the month and Brooks Conrad’s three-run homer. Atlanta moved two games ahead of San Diego in the NL wild-card race. The Padres hosted Chicago on Wednesday night. Atlanta closes at home against NL East champion Philadelphia with a three-game series starting Friday night. Pitching on three days’ rest, Lowe (16-12) gave up one run and seven hits in 52⁄3 innings and struck out nine. He is 5-0 with a 1.17 ERA this month with 29 strikeouts and three walks in 302⁄3 innings. His 16 wins matched Tim Hudson for the team high. “His last four starts or so have been dominating,” Cox said, adding the short rest “didn’t affect him at all. He was fired up.” Peter Moylan, Mike Dunn, Craig Kimbrel and Wagner combined for 31⁄3 scoreless innings.
NFL Collins said he should’ve walked away spat with fan GREEN BAY, Wis. — Green Bay Packers safety Nick Collins said he should have just walked away from a confrontation with a fan after Monday night’s loss at Chicago’s Soldier Field. Collins got into a shouting match with a fan as he left the field and threw his mouthpiece into the stands. Milwaukee’s WITI-TV captured video of the incident, reporting that the fan spit on Collins and used a racial slur. Collins’ teammates are bothered by the incident, and receiver Donald Driver and quarterback Aaron Rodgers said fans are going too far when their taunts turn personal.

Two of the safeties are on blocked punts in the end zone. 1995 — Prairie View A&M sets the college football record for consecutive losses with a 64-0 loss to Grambling State. It is the team’s 51st straight defeat, an NCAA record for any level. 2007 — Detroit scores an NFLrecord 34 points in the fourth quarter of a 37-27 victory over Chicago. The Lions combine with the Bears to score 48 points in the quarter — also a league record.

Petty, teammates make Trojans’ kicking game special By Ernest Bowker firstname.lastname@example.org
Cody Petty is putting the “special” in special teams for Tallulah Academy. The senior has three kick returns for touchdowns in the last three games, narrowly missed a fourth, and shredded Claiborne Academy for 261 return yards and two scores in last week’s 56-33 loss. Petty is averaging 37.4 yards on nine kickoff and two punt returns heading into Friday night’s game against Wilkinson County Christian. Most of the damage has been done in the last four weeks, after he missed a Week 2 game against St. Aloysius because of a sprained ankle. “It’s good blocking, but Cody has good athleticism and quickness,” Tallulah coach Nick Evans said. “Ever since that ankle healed, he’s done a real nice job.” Petty hasn’t been the only bright spot on special teams. Five different players have returned kicks and combined for a 24.2-yard average. Defensive lineman Tyler Jobe even returned a pooch kick 55 yards for a touchdown against Baton Rouge Christian. Evans said the strong performance is the result of getting returnable kicks. “The last few weeks, people have been kicking to us. Before that, they hadn’t kicked to us. Now they’re probably going to stop kicking to us again,” Evans said with a laugh.
clinch a playoff berth with a win over Columbia Academy next week, coupled with a loss by Columbia against Amite Cody this Friday. Petty First up, though, is a game at Benton Academy (3-3). Wins this week and next would give CHA back-to-back sevenwin seasons, and they have a shot to win eight games for the first time since 2007. Coach Todd Montgomery, though, felt the Cougars could do even better. “We have a good opportunity to do something that hasn’t been done at this school in a while, and that’s win 10 games,” Montgomery said. “We’re in a stretch now where we just have to play ball and things should go our way.”
Central Hinds at Benton Having successfully navigated a tough September stretch, Central Hinds can now turn its attention to locking down a playoff berth and finishing off one of the best regular seasons in school history. Central Hinds (5-1) can
Winona Christian at SIA Sharkey-Issaquena, losers of three straight, host Winona Christian (4-1) Friday in a non-district game. Despite its recent struggles and a 1-5 record, SIA has scored in three of its last four games after being shut out six consecutive times over two seasons.
8-man football Briarfield at Rebul Briarfield (4-2, 2-0 South Division) takes on Rebul (4-2, 2-1) in what amounts to a playoff game for both teams. Each has a few contests left on the schedule, but the winner will be in the driver’s seat for one of the division’s two playoff berths with a victory. “This is a huge game,” Briarfield coach Ben Durham
said. “We know if we win, we feel pretty confident we’re going to make the playoffs. And if we lose, our backs are against the wall.” Briarfield has scored 144 points in its last two games. Fuad Ahmed has rushed for more than 700 yards and 13 touchdowns in that span, but both he and Matt Dennis are averaging more than 11 yards per carry.
MHSAA Hinds AHS at Wesson Hinds AHS gets its stiffest test of the season so far when it takes on undefeated Wesson (5-0) in the Region 6-2A opener for both teams. Despite a 1-4 record, Hinds has scored first in all five of its games and led at halftime in three of them. Coach Michael Fields said it’s encouraging to see his young team jump on opponents early, but disappointing to have them come up short at the end. “We can’t finish. It proves we’re getting better, because
we’re competitive, but they just have to learn to finish,” Fields said. “What’s going to have to happen is we’re going to have to play a little harder early and get a bigger lead.”
Leflore County at South Delta South Delta hosts Leflore County in a key game to open the Region 3-4A schedule. Both Leflore County (4-1) and South Delta (4-2) established themselves as the top contenders in non-region play, and tonight’s game will go a long way toward determining playoff seeding and the region championship.
Columbia at Port Gibson After its best start in nearly 20 years, Port Gibson (4-2) turns its attention toward a playoff push when it starts the Region 7-4A slate at home against Columbia (2-4). Port Gibson won four nonregion games for the first time since 1992 by beating Hazlehurst 17-7 last week.

Mantell, 94, died Wednesday at the Providence Tarzana Medical Center in Tarzana, Calif., according to a statement from his son, Dr. Robert Mantell. The statement said the death followed a long illness, but it did not elaborate. Joe Mantell was a character actor with more than Mantell 70 film and TV credits who received an Academy Award nomination in 1956 for his performance as Angie, the best friend of Ernest Borgnine in “Marty.” His oft-repeated line to his sad-sack friend — “Well, what do you feel like doin’ tonight?” — was one of the beloved film’s most memorable lines. He again became a part of movie lore in 1974’s “Chinatown,” in which he played the partner of Jack Nicholson’s detective character, Jack Gittes. Mantell spoke the film’s famous last line: “Forget it, Jake. It’s Chinatown.” Ed Wiley Jr. — A jazz and blues saxophonist who recorded the 1950 hit “Cry, Cry Baby” and is considered an early influence in rock ’n’ roll, has died in North Carolina. He was 80. Ed Wiley III said Wednesday his father was leaving church in Garner on Sunday when he fell and struck his head. The elder Wiley slipped into a coma and died the next day at a Raleigh hospital.
‘Star Wars’ films to be rereleased in 3-D May the force be in 3-D. Lucasfilm announced Wednesday that the “Star Wars” films will be converted into 3-D and rereleased theatrically. All six films of the saga, beginning with episode one, “The Phantom Menace,” and concluding with episode six, “Return of the Jedi,” are expected to be released in theaters in 2012. Lucasfilm and distributor Twentieth Century Fox have not yet set a release date. Industrial Light & Magic is supervising the conversion process, which it promises will be “cutting edge.” Many previous conversions of films shot in 2-D, such as “Clash of the Titans,” have drawn criticism for cheapening 3-D. John Knoll, visual effects supervisor for Industrial Light & Magic said a proper conversion to 3-D “is a matter of taking the time and getting it right.”
Some Anna Nicole charges dismissed Anna Nicole Smith’s boyfriend has been acquitted of two charges of obtaining drugs for her by fraud and deceit, including use of false names. Superior Court Judge Robert Perry also dismissed part of a conspiracy count against Howard Stern and Dr. Sandeep Kapoor, ruling there was insufficient proof that the two men conspired to obtain controlled drugs through fraud Anna Nicole Smith and deceit. But in his ruling Wednesday, Perry allowed the balance of that conspiracy charge to stand and said the bulk of the 11-count complaint would go to the jury for verdicts. Attorneys were scheduled for closing arguments on Monday. Stern, Kapoor and Dr. Khristine Eroshevich have pleaded not guilty to conspiring to prescribe, administer and dispense a controlled substance to an addict. They are not charged in Smith’s 2007 overdose death. Perry accepted arguments by the defense that because Stern is not a doctor, he would not have known if there were problems with the legality of prescriptions written by Kapoor. Defense lawyers had hoped for more dismissals based on the judge’s critical comments regarding the prosecution’s case through the trial.
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Tony Curtis, the Bronx tailor’s son who became a 1950s movie heartthrob and then a respected actor with such films as “Sweet Smell of Success,” “The Defiant Ones” and “Some Like It Hot,” has died. He was 85. The actor died about 11:25 p.m. Wednesday at his Las Vegas area home of a cardiac arrest, Clark County Coroner Mike Murphy said today. After a series of frivolous movies that exploited his handsome physique and appealing personality, Curtis moved to more substantial roles, starting in 1957 in the harrowing show business tale “Sweet Smell of Success.” In 1958, “The Defiant Ones” brought him an Academy Award nomination as best actor for his portrayal of a white racist escaped convict handcuffed to a black escapee, Sidney Poitier. The following year, he donned women’s clothing and sparred with Marilyn Monroe in one of the most acclaimed film comedies ever, Billy Wilder’s “Some Like It Hot.” His first wife was actress Janet Leigh of “Psycho” fame; actress Jamie Leigh Curtis is their daughter. In later years, he returned to film and television as a character actor after battling drug and alcohol abuse. His brash optimism returned, and he allowed his once-shiny black hair to turn silver. “I’m not ready to settle down like an elderly Jewish gentleman, sitting on a bench and leaning on a cane,” he said at 60. “I’ve got a helluva lot of living to do.” He also became a painter whose canvases sold for as much as $20,000. Curtis perfected his craft in forgettable films such as “Francis,” “I Was a Shoplifter,” “No Room for the Groom” and “Son of Ali Baba.” He first attracted critical notice as Sidney Falco, the press agent seeking favor with a sadistic columnist, played by Burt Lancaster, in the 1957 classic “Sweet Smell of Success.” In her book “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang,” Pauline Kael wrote that in the film, “Curtis grew up into an actor and gave the best performance of his career.” Other prestigious films followed: Stanley Kubrick’s “Spartacus,” “Captain Newman, M.D.,” “The Vikings,” “Kings Go Forth,” “Operation Petti-

Curtis — famously imitating Cary Grant’s accent — and Jack Lemmon play jazz musicians who dress up as women to escape retribution after witnessing a gangland massacre. Monroe was their co-star, and he and Lemmon were repeatedly kept waiting as Monroe lingered in her dressing room out of fear and insecurity. Curtis fumed over her unpro-
One role during that era of struggle did bring him an Emmy nomination: his portrayal of David O. Selznick in the TV movie “The Scarlett O’Hara War,” in 1980. His health remained vigorous, though he did get heart bypass surgery in 1994. Curtis took a fatherly pride in daughter Jamie Leigh’s success. They were estranged for a long period, then reconciled. “I understand him better now,” she said, “perhaps not as a father but as a man.” He also had five other children. Daughters Kelly, also with Leigh, and Allegra, with second wife Christine Kaufmann, also became actresses. His other wives were Leslie Allen, Lisa Deutsch and Jill VandenBerg, whom he married in 1998. He had married Janet Leigh in 1951, when they were both rising young stars; they divorced in 1963. Curtis was born Bernard Schwartz in the Bronx in 1925, the son of Hungarian Jews who had emigrated to the United States after World War I. His father, Manny Schwartz, had yearned to be an actor, but work was hard to find with his heavy accent. He settled for tailoring jobs, moving the family repeatedly as he sought work. His sidewalk histrionics helped avoid beatings and led to acting in plays at a settlement house. He also grew to love movies. “My whole culture as a boy was movies,” he said.
‘Bonnie and Clyde’ director Penn dies at 88 NEW YORK (AP) — Director Arthur Penn, a mythmaker and myth-breaker who in such classics as “Bonnie and Clyde” and “Little Big Man” refashioned movie and American history and sealed a generation’s affinity for outsiders, died Tuesday night, a day after his 88th birthday. Daughter Molly Penn said her father died at his home, in Manhattan, of congestive heart failure. Longtime friend and business manager Evan Bell said Wednesday that Penn had been ill for about a year and that a memorial service will be held before the end of the year. Penn’s older brother was photographer Irving Penn, who died in October 2009. After first making his name on Broadway as director of the Tony Award-winning plays “The Miracle Worker” and “All the Way Home,” Penn rose as a film director in the 1960s,
h i s wo r k inspired by the decade’s political and social upheaval, and Americans’ interest in their past Arthur and present. Penn “Bonnie and Clyde,” with its mix of humor and mayhem, encouraged moviegoers to sympathize with the lawbreaking couple from the 1930s, while “Little Big Man” told the tale of the conquest of the West with the Indians as the good guys. “A society would be wise to pay attention to the people who do not belong if it wants to find out ... where it’s failing,” Penn once said. Penn’s other films included his adaptation of “The Miracle Worker,” featuring an Oscar-winning performance by Anne Bancroft; “The Mis-
ANd one more
souri Breaks,” an outlaw tale starring Marlon Brando and Jack Nicholson; “Night Moves,” a Los Angeles thriller featuring Gene Hackman; and “Alice’s Restaurant,” based on the wry Arlo Guthrie song about being turned down for the draft because he had once been fined for littering. Penn was most identified with “Bonnie and Clyde,” although it wasn’t a project he initiated or, at first, wanted. Beatty, who earlier starred in Penn’s “Mickey One” and produced “Bonnie and Clyde,” had to persuade him to take on the film, written by Robert
Benton and David Newman and inspired by the movies of the French New Wave. (Francois Truffaut and Jean LucGodard each turned down offers to direct the film). Penn was in his 40s when he made “Bonnie and Clyde,” but his heart was very much with the gorgeous stars, played by Beatty and Faye Dunaway, and with the story, as liberal in its politics as it was with the facts — a celebration of individual freedom and an expose of the banks that had ruined farmers’ lives.

Firemen battle flames, fleeing bedbugs Denver firefighters ran into more than the normal hazards at a house fire. Crews responding to the blaze Wednesday also had to battle bedbugs, the bloodsucking insects quickly becoming the scourge of households and businesses across the country. Lt. Phil Champagne of the Denver Fire Department said that firefighters had to be decontaminated after going into an attic where items were infested with bedbugs. The bugs scurried away from the flames and latched on to firefighters’ equipment and gear. Some of the gear had to bagged so the bugs wouldn’t get a free ride to the firehouse. There were no injuries, but the home was declared uninhabitable.
fessionalism. When someone remarked that it must be thrilling to kiss Monroe in the film’s love scenes, the actor snapped, “It’s like kissing Hitler.” In later years, his opinion of Monroe softened, and in interviews he praised her unique talent. In 2002, Curtis toured in “Some Like It Hot” — a revised and retitled version of the 1972 Broadway musical “Sugar,” which was based on the film. In the touring show, the actor graduated to the role of Osgood Fielding III, the part played in the movie by Joe E. Brown. After his star faded in the late 1960s, Curtis shifted to lesser roles. With jobs harder to find, he fell into drug and alcohol addiction. “From 22 to about 37, I was lucky,” Curtis told Interview magazine in the 1980s, “but by the middle ’60s, I wasn’t getting the kind of parts I wanted, and it kind of soured me. ... But I had to go through the drug inundation before I was able to come to grips with it and realize that it had nothing to do with me, that people weren’t picking on me.” He recovered in the early ’80s after a 30-day treatment at the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage. “Mine was a textbook case,” he said in a 1985 interview. “My life had become unmanageable because of booze and dope. Work became a strain and a struggle. Because I didn’t want to face the challenge, I simply made myself unavailable.”

Friend doesn’t want to choose sides in couple’s breakup Dear Abby: My 3-year-old goddaughter, “Tammy,” is one of the most important people in my life. So are her parents, “Sophie” and “Zack.” I was friendly with them separately before they got together. As a couple, they selected me to be godmother. They have since split up. Zack is understanding about my staying neutral and continuing to be friendly with him and his ex. But Sophie gets mad and won’t talk to me for weeks if she hears I went to see Tammy on a weekend she’s with her daddy. Even though I am closer to Sophie, Zack is a great father and a good friend. I don’t think it’s fair that Sophie expects me to take her side. I feel their issues are theirs alone, and my main focus is that my goddaughter has my support regardless of which parent she happens to be with.
DEAR ABBY ABIGAIL
Am I doing something wrong? If not, how do I handle Sophie? — Honored in Omaha Dear Honored: You are doing nothing wrong. However, viewed from Sophie’s perspective, it may appear that you have “chosen” her ex over her. A way to handle this would be to tell Sophie that you are not visiting Tammy when she’s with Zack because you prefer his company over Sophie’s. It’s that you want your goddaughter to have continuity, and if Sophie is upset with Zack, she shouldn’t dis-
BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION If tomorrow is your birthday: Many opportunities might come your way in the next solar cycle, but most of them are likely to be fleeting. Thus, if you’re interested in one, you must be prepared to act quickly. Indifference on your part could end badly. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — In order to expedite getting something you want, you might promise things you can’t produce at this time. Be extremely careful, because you will be taken at your word and asked to deliver. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — If you’re going to take a gamble on anybody, it had better be on yourself. Don’t believe people who say they can do something without first verifying their ability. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Confidential information should not be discussed in front of an outsider whom you think won’t understand what you’re talking about. S/he might be a snake in the grass. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Nobody is expected to know everything, so don’t think you’re someone who should. Don’t play any games and do not try to bluff your way through a matter you don’t comprehend. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — A joint endeavor in which you’re involved needs to be monitored extremely carefully. If you don’t get a handle on it, the only money that comes in might be out of your pocket. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Keep an open mind, even if some suggestions issue from companions who have never been in your position but want to be helpful. They actually might have some ideas that could work. Aries (March 21-April 19) — When gabbing with friends, let everybody else put in their two cents’ worth before you have your say. You’ll better know what will be acceptable. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Carry along your own life jacket, because if you get in hot water way over your head, your pals aren’t likely to rescue you. Be prepared to sink or swim all on your own. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Gird thyself: your well-meaning in-laws will soon poke their noses in your affairs. Unless you cut them off at the pass, unfortunately, their good intentions could create a lot of unnecessary static. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Even if your friends are piling it on rather thick, don’t attempt to follow suit and embellish your stories. You’ll be the one who will have to verify your tales. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Resist any temptations to spend your future material blessings before they have a chance to become realities. If your checkbook can’t cover what you want to buy, be patient and wait until it can. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Don’t buckle under to a big mouth who always has all the answers and knows better than everybody else. If you don’t trust yourself, you’ll be influenced by others.
TWEEN 12 & 20
BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: I’m a high school junior and would like to see my high school confidential records. I asked my counselor and she said, “No way.” Why can’t I see my own records? After all, they’re mine. Who is allowed to see my records? Can future employers see my confidential records? — Clyde, Ontario, Calif. Clyde: Your counselor was mistaken. You, with your parents or legal guardians have the right to see your confidential records. Have a parent call the school principal and ask that you and the parent be allowed to see your file. Permission will be granted. These rights become exclusively yours on your 18th birthday, upon graduation, or when you marry or enter military service, whichever comes first. Other than you and your parents, only school officials are ever allowed to view your confidential file. Of course, future employers can request to see a transcript of your grades, and the school will send it to them. That’s one reason to do your very best academically! Dr. Wallace: I’m in my second year at university and can’t believe the cheating that takes place on campus. I work my tail off just to get a B, but some jerk sitting next to me cheats and gets an A. It just isn’t fair. It almost makes me feel like cheating myself just to keep up. Why do people in college cheat so much? Why don’t they just study and learn something? — Phil, Champaign, Ill. Phil: Students cheat for a number of reasons. Often, the major causes are parental pressure to get good grades and the desire to socialize instead of studying. Of course, some students are just plain lazy and think they can get something for nothing. Many students have watched their parents cheat on their income tax returns and misuse company money and supplies for so long that they have accepted the notion that it is OK to cheat as long as you don’t get caught. They forget that it is morally wrong. But wrong it is. Hang in there with your hard-earned, honest B’s. You will be the winner in the long run. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service.

place her anger onto you because it’s not fair to you or her daughter. And further, if this continues, Sophie will drive a caring friend (you) away. Dear Abby: In this age of electronic devices, how appropriate is it to take photos at the table in a restaurant? I suppose it depends on the establishment — probably not a problem in a casual buffet environment. My boyfriend and I like to go to fancy restaurants (on our own and with friends), and we enjoy taking pictures of each other, our friends and the food. How do we handle this? Do other patrons care how many times we “flash” our cameras? — Snap-Happy in Bloomington, Ind. Dear Snap-Happy: When making reservations at an expensive restaurant, ask whether it would be disrup-
tive to take pictures. While some diners might not object, I can think of several reasons why some would find it intrusive. Because some “foodies” enjoy snapping photos of their table and the various dishes as they’re presented, it may be possible to be seated in a location where the flash will not be a nuisance. However, the restaurant staff should be warned in advance. Dear Abby: I volunteer at a hospital and help with mail sorting for the patients. I know it is important for patients to receive their mail — even if they are no longer being treated at the hospital. Abby, please advise your readers that when they send Get Well cards, to always use the person’s OWN name — like, “Betty Jones” instead of “Mrs. John Jones.” Also, when sending a card or note to someone in the hospital, to
always put the patient’s home address as the return address on the envelope — not their own. If your readers do this, the person is sure to receive it, even after he or she has been discharged from the hospital. — Judy in Lorain, Ohio Dear Judy: Thank you for two perfectly logical suggestions — which I’m sure
the majority of people don’t always consider when they’re sending their good wishes. Readers, take heed.

Information is plentiful on Behcet’s disease Dear Dr. Gott: My 46-yearold daughter has been diagnosed with Behcet’s disease after several years and after seeing several doctors. She usually has outbreaks in her mouth twice a year, sometimes more often if she has a stressful situation occur. There don’t appear to be any doctors in the Memphis, Tenn., area who are familiar with this disease. Is there a teaching hospital in the United States that specializes in, or is doing research on, the topic? Dear Reader: I wrote a rather extensive column regarding Behcet’s disease that can be reviewed by logging on to my website at www.AskDrGottMD.com. Go to the search bar, and type in Behcet’s disease to review the column. Beyond that, you can go online to the American Behcet’s Disease Association at www.behcets.com; the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke at www.ninds.nih.gov; or numerous other sites for indepth information. Beyond that, the National Institutes of Health is sponsoring a new study on Behcet’s and is looking for people with the disease for their work. Education and patient awareness are vital so patients can know what to expect when diagnosed with a specific condition. Dear Dr. Gott: How much vitamin D should I take? I hear everything from 400 IU to 10,000 IU. I’m currently taking 5,000 IU. Should I take it every other day? I’m a 59-year-old female. Please advise. Dear Reader: Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin essential for the growth and development of teeth and bones and for the absorption of calcium and phosphorous from the intestines. Without sufficient vitamin D, bones can become thin, brittle and misshapen. It prevents softening of bones in children, a condition known as rickets. When combined with calcium, it helps protect older adults from osteoporosis. As research unfolds and theories are validated, it is thought to be linked to thyroid disorders, hypertension, stroke, diabetes, heart failure, colon, prostate and breast cancer, multiple sclerosis, chronic pain, infection and other disorders. The average vitamin D intake of American adults is about 230 IU daily. Some researchers are recommending that the dose be increased to between 1,500 and 2,000 IU daily, while others believe 5,000 is appropriate. According to the Office of Dietary Supplements, a division of the National Institutes of Health, people between infancy and 50 should take 200 IU; between 51 and 70, 400 IU; 71 and over, 600 IU. Research remains ongoing, and new studies were to have been completed in May
ASK THE DOCTOR Dr. PETER
2010 and reported later this fall that may modify these recommendations. Vitamin D comes from three sources — supplements, exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays that penetrate the skin and foods such as fatty fish, fortified milk products, egg yolks and butter. It is said that 20 minutes in the sun at solar noon provides 200 times more vitamin D than one glass of milk.
