Officials: Bin Laden involved in Europe terror plot

By Pamela Hitchins Friday, Mayor Paul Winfield’s reading materials weren’t legal and administrative but something a little different, and his audience was unusual, too. Seated in a rocking chair in the library at Sherman Avenue Elementary with about 50 kindergartners around him, the mayor opened the book, “There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Leaves,” by Lucille Colandro, and began to read aloud. “I’ve never read this book before,” Winfield told the kids. After the lady had swallowed leaves, a shirt and a pumpkin, he interrupted himself to say: “It’s exciting to turn from page to page. You don’t know what you’re going to find.” He had the kids chiming

in with a loud “a-choo!” on cue at the end of each page and giggling about each successive fall-related item the lady swallowed. Finally, after the surprise ending (read the book to find out) he was bowled over by a group hug. Winfield was one of a dozen or so community leaders who took time out to help Vicksburg Warren School District Superintendent Dr. Elizabeth Duran Swinford launch Real People Read, a literacy initiative to bring adults into the schools to read to and share stories with students of all ages. “We’re here today because we are celebrating something that’s important in your life,” Swinford told the kindergartners, whose teachers are Sally Owen and Cheryl Ricks. She told the students that she reads to her two grandchildren through video conferencing See Read, Page A7.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Osama bin Laden emerged Friday as a key figure in a European terror plot, raising speculation he may be flexing his muscles in a move to show a besieged al-Qaida remains strong and able to launch major attacks on Western targets. U.S. counterterrorism officials said they believe that senior al-Qaida leaders, Osama includbin Laden ing bin Laden, were involved in the plan to strike several European cities in a coordinated assault. If bin Laden had a direct hand in the planning, it would be the most active role he has played in a terror plot since the 9/11 attacks, according to U.S. officials and analysts. Counterterrorism officials said that they are now working under the assumption that bin Laden played a role in the plotting, but they would not detail what indications they’ve seen that led them in that direction. Still, some also believe that bin Laden’s orders may have been delivered by one of his top commanders, since the alQaida leader is known to avoid close contact with anyone except his closet confidants. While bin Laden’s name is still a powerful reminder of the World Trade Center’s twin towers and the Pentagon engulfed in flames, U.S. officials have for months asserted both in private and in hearings on Capitol Hill that his core alQaida group is weakened, struggling to raise money and attract recruits. “Clearly there is a great deal of pressure on alQaida to do something to show that it is still alive and kicking,” said Richard Barrett, the head of a U.N. group that monitors the threat posed by al-Qaida and the Taliban. “They need to show they’re strong, they’re a See Terror, Page A7.

Event effective The Douglas Park-Marcus Bottom Community Fund Committee wants to thank everyone who helped make our second annual festival a success. A number of churches gave money and other assistance. Also a number of businesses and others, including the faculty at Dana Road Elementary, AmeriCorps volunteers and the local affiliate of the National Association of Negro Business and Professional Women, donated products and time. We also thank the Vicksburg police and fire departments and the Warren County Sheriff’s Department for providing a safe environment and words of encouragement. Approximately 300 people came, and we supplied our youths with food, fun, school supplies, school uniforms

and information. If all communities held such an event on the same day, at the same time each year, there would be fewer children roaming the streets and more doing something positive and constructive. Pearline Williams Committee chairman

Care exceptional I am writing about the stay I had at the “River Region Hilton,” a trip I’ll likely not forget. My personal “dream team” — headed up by our very competent family physician, Dr. Lara Clement, enhanced by the expertise of Dr. V. Shenoy, my pleasant anesthesiologist, Dr. J. Adams, and complemented by the precise hands of surgeon Dr. E. Ferris — ended a painful journey. Other staffers who made every effort to keep me comfortable and pain free deserve to be commended. Kudos to nurses Mary Speights, Shelly Guilder, Barbara Wilkensen, Sherry Smith, Alisha Wilkes, Sonja Woods and Dana Peavey; PCTs Jacqueline, Natalie, Daphne, Brittany, Nicole and Kinesha; and Toni, our cheerful and compassionate transporter. Vicksburg should appreci-

ate the talented folks at River Region. May God continue to guide all your hands during the care you bestow, and bless your families as well. Darlene and Joe Lorinc Vicksburg

Vets generous The Vicksburg-Warren Humane Society would like to thank our local veterinarians for all they do for us. A very special thanks to Dr. Duhon of Vicksburg Animal Hospital who tested Annabelle for us. Thanks to her, we found out that she was not pregnant, just fat. She is now on a diet. A special thanks to Dr. Eddie Lipscomb and Dr. James Valentine who have helped us with 11 starving and abused horses rescued this year. Dr. Jones of Animal Medical Center has come to our rescue on two separate occasions — on his day off. Drs. Ruggles, Cordes, Loper and Betsy Lipscomb are also on the team that helps us as we struggle with the overwhelming magnitude of abused and unwanted pets that come through our door. From the heart, thank you. Georgia Lynn President Vicksburg-Warren Humane Society

Warren under burn ban Warren County joined several others on Friday by declaring an indefinite burn ban. Warren County Volunteer Fire Department Coordinator Kelly Worthy said with no rain in the extended forecast, it was the best option to join 15 other counties. “It’s dry, definitely dry,” Worthy said. The other counties with burn bans, so far, are: Attala, Chickasaw, Clay, DeSoto, Forrest, Grenada, Hinds, Kemper, Lauderdale, Lee, Monroe, Panola, Pontotoc, Rankin and Tate. Rankin County has had 45 grass or forest fires in less than two weeks. The National Weather Service has predicted the relative humidity values to range from 20 to 25 percent and expect wind gusts from 15 to 25 mph. Those condition are favorable for the rapid spread of fire, endangering surrounding land and buildings. Last month was the driest September since 1956. The Jackson metro area received 0.04 inches of rain.

Group gives Barbour ‘C’ on fiscal report card

School bus wreck sends 4 to hospital

JACKSON — A libertarian think tank is giving Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour a “C” for fiscal policy — a rare example of a small-government group criticizing the potential 2012 presidential candidate on money issues. “Gov. Barbour has a conservative reputation, but his tax and spending record over seven years as governor has not been very conservative,” the Cato Institute said in a national report released Thursday. The report gave high grades to governors who pushed for limited government the past two years, and lower grades to governors who signed tax increases. It criticized Barbour for signing laws increasing Mississippi’s hospital tax and cigarette tax. Barbour signed two cigarette tax increases in 2009. One added 50 cents a pack to all cigarettes. The other added 25 cents a pack to off-brand cigarettes. The governor pushed legislators in 2009 to revive and update a hospital tax that had been in place about a dozen years but had been blocked by the federal government in 2005. The hospital tax helps fund Medicaid, the government insurance program for the needy. Barbour spokesman Dan Turner said Friday that the Cato Institute erroneously thought the hospital tax in 2009 was new. “In fact, during Gov. Barbour’s term, the hospital taxes imposed have been $400 mil-

Three Warren County students and a school bus driver were taken to the hospital Friday afternoon after a wreck on Mississippi 27 near China Grove Road. Anna Marie Passman, 46, 200 Roy Young Road, was the driver of a Vicksburg Warren School District bus, which was carrying about a dozen students from Warren Central Junior High School, when the bus was rear-ended by a pickup driven by James D. Davis Jr., 105 Normandy Drive, Clinton, Trooper Wayne Smith of the Mississippi Highway Safety Patrol said. Smith said the wreck occurred when Davis was distracted from an object falling in the back seat of his truck and had hit the rear of the bus, which was stopped. Passman was taken to River Region Medical Center, along with students Maggie Emby, 12, Taliaferro Bass, 13, and Randy Kline, 13, Smith said. All were treated and released, hospital spokesman Allen Karel said. No citations were given.

Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour was given a “C” grade on fiscal responsibility from the Cato Institute. lion less than they would have been under existing law when he came into office,” Turner said. Hospitals’ cumulative tax payments were lower during Barbour’s term because the hospitals did not pay the tax for four years. Marvin King, a University of

Mississippi political scientist, said Friday that the Cato Institute “has a very limited view of what the public good is” and it sees most government spending as taking away people’s liberty. King said Medicaid, for example, is mandated by the federal government and states must find a way to pay a

portion of the expenses. “I think Cato is being unduly harsh and unduly idealistic in its ratings,” King said. “It grades governors based on a theory. But in the real world, choices have to be made and things have to be paid for. It’s not like Haley Barbour hasn’t cut (spending) a lot.”

City woman in jail on drug court charge A Vicksburg woman was in the Warren County Jail Friday night for violating a drug court sanction. Cheyenne Emery, 18, 316 Northridge Drive, was arrested at 3:30 p.m. by Warren County deputies and was being held without bond.

FBI building named for civil rights workers, agent JACKSON, Miss. — The new FBI headquarters in Mississippi will be named for three civil rights workers killed in the state in 1964 and a veteran FBI agent who led the investigation into their deaths. President Barack Obama signed a bill designating the “James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, Michael Schwerner and Roy K. Moore Federal Building” in Jackson. U.S. Rep. Bennie Thompson said Friday it’s a fitting tribute because the four men “committed their lives to fighting for justice and equality.” Chaney, Goodman and Schwerner were working to register black voters in Neshoba County when they were kidnapped and killed by Ku Klux Klansmen in the “Mississippi Burning” case. Moore established the first FBI field office in Mississippi after the three men disappeared. Moore also investigated other civil-rights era crimes.

Man charged in killing of sheriff gets time LUCEDALE, Miss. — One of two people charged in the hit-and-run death of George County Sheriff Garry Welford has been sentenced to 18 years in prison on two drug charges. Christopher Lee Baxter was sentenced Thursday by Circuit Judge Robert Krebs in Lucedale. Krebs said Baxter showed “contempt and disrespect for the court system” by skipping a July 19 sentencing hearing on the drug charges.

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS It was Baxter’s failure to appear in court that led to a pursuit in George County that ended with the 62-yearold sheriff being struck and killed by a pickup truck. Baxter and 19-year-old Brandy Nicole Williams are charged with capital murder.

Ala. town aims to block ‘Redneck Riviera’ show GULF SHORES, Ala. — An Alabama beach town doesn’t want to be the home of a Southern-fried version of MTV’s “Jersey Shore” reality show. The Gulf Shores City Council approved a statute this week that would require anyone filming a TV show in town to get a $250 permit, and city officials can refuse shows they don’t like. Mayor Robert Craft says the law isn’t aimed solely at a proposed show called “Redneck Riviera,” but he added that officials are aware of the possibility of the show landing in Gulf Shores. A production company has set up a website seeking auditions for the show, which

apparently would include lots of Confederate flags, pickup trucks and partying in an area known to many as the “Redneck Riviera.”

Mardi Gras float-makers at odds over co. control NEW ORLEANS — A power struggle has erupted in the family that has run one of this city’s oldest Mardi Gras institutions, a company that has made carnival floats for more than 50 years. Barry Kern, former president of Blaine Kern Artists Inc., filed a lawsuit Friday that seeks to oust his father, Blaine Sr., from the company that bears his name. The suit claims Blaine Kern Sr. of mismanaging the business, leaving it “technically insolvent.” Barry Kern also accuses his father’s fourth wife, Holly Brown, of manipulating her 83-yearold husband and dominating his business and personal relationships.

Miss. police arrest Ala. robbery suspect ATHENS, Ala. — Authorities say a man wanted in bank robberies in Alabama


has been arrested in a motel near a strip of casinos in Mississippi. Athens police Sgt. Dustin Lansford said 49-year-old Ronald Eugene Pollard of Florence was arrested Thursday in Tunica. After photos from a robbery in Alabama in September appeared in the media, police got tips about the robber’s identity. Using enhanced images from that robbery, police were able to identify the robber as the same person who robbed the bank in Athens in July.

Final pitches made for Louisiana elections BATON ROUGE, La. — Candidates made final pitches by mail and phone, on the radio and TV, and in person, trying to drum up votes for Saturday’s election for lieutenant governor and an array of local races. At the top of the ballot is an eight-person race to fill the remaining year of the lieutenant governor’s job left by Mitch Landrieu when he became mayor of New Orleans. In southeastern Louisiana, a nasty battle for

the Republican nomination in the 3rd District congressional race will be decided. Meanwhile, voters around the state face choices for local mayoral jobs, school board seats and judgeships. A contested seat for the Public Service Commission that regulates utilities around the state is on the ballot in several parishes from Baton Rouge to New Orleans, and more than 900 municipal posts and nearly 650 school board seats are up for grabs.

Prisons Epps on right track for reform From other Mississippi newspapers • Enterprise-Journal, McComb: For years, the cost of operating Mississippi’s prison system was one of the fastest growing expenditures of the state budget. In order to show they were tough on crime, state lawmakers pursued policies to lock up more offenders for longer stretches of time. That fueled a prison-building binge. In the process, the corrections budget more than tripled over a stretch of a decade and a half, taking money from other major state priorities such as education and health care. Under the leadership of Corrections Commissioner Chris Epps, Missis-

sippi has been slowly bringing common sense to the balancing act between public safety and taxpayer costs. Epps has helped persuade the Legislature to lighten up on the 1995 truthin-sentencing law, which required all inmates — violent or not, first offender or habitual criminal — to serve 85 percent of their sentences before becoming eligible for parole. He has won permission to allow some drug offenders to earn their way out of prison early. He has encouraged lawmakers to give judges more discretion to use penalties other than incarceration to deal with low-risk offenders. As a result, over the last year, Epps has been able to reduce the state’s inmate population by about 2,000, cut

staff and mothball some expensive prison cells. Recently, he told state legislative budget writers that he can make it through next year without any additional money from the general fund. In fact, he proposed a tiny cut. Although $5,000 out of a $335 million budget isn’t much, the gesture is significant. Most of the other state agencies are putting in requests for additional funding even with lawmakers anticipating a revenue loss next year of $400 million to $500 million. One thing good about the economic downturn of the past couple of years, it has forced lawmakers to think much more critically about who really should be behind bars. ...

Flood insurance extension not enough The Clarion-Ledger, Jackson: Congress has voted to grant a one-year extension of the National Flood Insurance Program, which is a reprieve, but not a solution, to insureds on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. The program is administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency and provides flood coverage through more than 90 private insurance companies that sell policies and collect premiums on the government’s behalf for a fee. National Flood Insurance Program premiums go to FEMA. More than 5 million homeowners use the program as their primary insurance against flooding. Without the congressional extension, the program would have expired in September.

The extension did not include U.S. Rep. Gene Taylor’s proposal to offer wind coverage, a program said to be $19 million in debt as a result of Katrina and 2008 floods. A National Flood Insurance Program reform package stalled in Congress last year in a fight over adding wind coverage. The Senate opposed Taylor’s proposal. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchinson (R-Texas) said that the one-year extension helps Gulf Coast communities and gave Congress “time to get serious about modernizing the program while continuing to allow those living in the flood plains access to flood insurance.” Opening insurance markets to those who choose to live in or near coastal flood plains has vexed federal and state

governments. The Mississippi Windstorm Underwriting Association Reinsurance Assistance Fund, or Windpool, is a state insurer of last resort for those who cannot obtain private insurance. Subsidizing coast insurance premiums was necessary after Katrina, but at some point the Windpool must stand on its own and those who utilize it must pay premiums that support the basic soundness of the program. From a federal and state standpoint, subsidized insurance cannot continue indefinitely, nor should it. But a oneyear extension of National Flood Insurance Program gives Congress time to get past the elections and engage in a serious examination of how to move forward with a long-term solution to a difficult, complex challenge.

Turn spotlight on overpriced consultant The Greenwood Commonwealth: Gov. Haley Barbour likes to say that the problem in government is not that the people are taxed too little but that the government spends too much. That truism could be applied to his administration’s own spending when it comes to doling out money to a highpriced consultant. In legislative budget hearings recently, Barbour’s head of economic development, Gray Swoope, was grilled over a cushy contract his agency negotiated with a former employee.

The Mississippi Development Authority has been paying Terri Hudson $240 an hour to help oversee spending of federal money for Hurricane Katrina recovery. That’s roughly four times more than her salary when she was working as MDA’s chief financial officer. Certainly, consultants — even in the private sector — usually make more than if they were on the payroll, since they have overhead to cover and receive no fringe benefits, such as health insurance or pensions, as inde-

pendent contractors. However, four times as much sounds grossly excessive. It’s not as if Fortune 500 companies have been competing for Hudson’s services. She’s teaching accounting at Millsaps College, a fine liberal arts school but not exactly the domain of high rollers. Barbour is awfully good — and usually accurate — about identifying waste in other parts of state government. He should turn, however, the spotlight sometimes on his own domain.

So many landmarks went out with the tidal surge that gave the world a proper name for natural disaster and manmade calamity: Katrina.

Gaps in the smile of the Gulf shoreline BILOXI — There is a frame around the Katrina high-water mark over the mantel inside Mary Mahoney’s, the venerable restaurant in an old French house that’s survived war, hurricanes, oil spills and casinos. As fresh fish is served up by candlelight to well-dressed, chattering denizens, you have to marvel at coastal survival. The Mississippi Coast revival is remarkable — that’s the general assessment, and a correct one. Still, as I walk the beachfront streets of old Biloxi, I miss things. I know I am being selfish, longing for old things instead of celebrating the new. But there are gaps in the smile of the shoreline. Some of my favorite places have been gone a lot longer than five years; a casino, not a hurricane, took out my alltime favorite restaurant, Fisherman’s Wharf. And I’m not even sure what happened to certain other cherished sights. Was it wind, water, progress or old age that wiped out the old house with the palm tree growing through its front RHETA steps? It’s gone. The gRIMSLEY park where my niece first saw the ocean. Gone. The shell shop with the tacky but wonderful souvenirs. Gone. So many landmarks went out with the tidal surge that gave the world a proper name for natural disaster and manmade calamity: Katrina. Such a musical name, forever tainted. I pass brick walks leading nowhere, chimneys standing alone, empty lots, more empty lots. There are more “For Sale” signs than I’ve ever seen, and high-rises where shaded single-family dwellings used to be, condos that look more like Florida than Mississippi. Some casinos have moved from the sea to the shore, an evolutionary crawl hastened by the storm. But the sand is whiter than usual. And you can get better views of the calm blue Sound. Considering the original devastation, the coast looks chastened but proud. The return was as sure as the tides. Waterfront is made to be used. We all are drawn to the shoreline. As Jacques Cousteau said, “The greatest resource of the ocean is not material but the boundless spring of inspiration and well-being we gain from her.” Some things deserve to be rebuilt again and again if necessary. In nearby Pass Christian, the Episcopal Church has risen to new heights — flood-proof ones. In Bay St. Louis, the library that temporarily moved to a trailer donated by Bill Gates is back in an improved permanent site. The children’s section alone is something for the books. A puppet theater is at one end. Over Jack’s beanstalk a giant hand reaches through clouds and the ceiling. In all the coastal towns there are more fresh paint jobs and new roofs than you can imagine. I consider myself optimistic by nature. I try to avoid dwelling in the past. I admire that Coast residents have regrouped and remained, and so many have. To someone who didn’t know it before, the necessary facelift would look charming and quite natural. And yet, looking at the Harvest Moon over Mississippi Sound is not as romantic as once it was to me. There is a sadness now, an association with loss and longing that this beach did not have before. I miss the way it was.

Rahm’s gone: New day, new tone for the White House Interim chief known as ‘problem-fixing, media-shy strategist’ WASHINGTON (AP) — Reshaping the tone and tenor of the White House, President Barack Obama on Friday replaced the colorful and caustic Rahm Emanuel with the private Pete Rouse as his chief of staff, shifting to a new phase of his presidency with a drastically different aide as trusted gatekeeper. Emanuel’s decision to quit the White House and run for Chicago mayor had been so well known that even Obama mocked the lack of suspense. But it still felt like the most important transition to date for the Obama operation, which has been fueled for nearly two years by Emanuel’s demands, drive and discipline. At an emotional farewell, Obama said, “We are all very excited for Rahm, but we’re

also losing an incomparable leader of our staff.” Emanuel choked up as he said his goodbye. Into the Pete breech steps Rouse Rouse, an Obama senior adviser known around the White House as a problem-fixing, media-shy strategist and organizer. Rouse is expected to serve as interim chief for several months and may eventually get the permanent job, as the White House is in the midst of reviewing a broader shake-up. Considered the most consuming and influential staff job in American politics, the chief of staff shapes nearly everything at the White

House — how the president spends his time, how he pursues his strategies on foreign and domestic policy, how he deals with a politically deadlocked Congress and a skeptical electorate. Distinctive, profane and combative in his approach, Emanuel was a bruising but successful manager often known simply as “Rahm.” The jarring contrast between the outgoing and incoming chiefs of staff was on full display as Obama spoke of both men in the grand East Room, which was packed with staff members. Emanuel waved to colleagues, whispered to his children in the first row and stood familiarly with his hands on hips, as if ready to get going. Rouse was quiet and stoic except for the occasional smile.

He almost seemed to shy away into the background even as Obama lauded his skills and his results. “It’s fair to say that we could not have accomplished what we’ve accomplished without Rahm’s leadership,” Obama said. The president singled out Emanuel’s work on signature health care and financial reform legislation, hugged him more than once and told his audience: “I will miss him dearly.” Emanuel choked up when his turn came. He spoke of his family’s immigrant background, the opportunities he’s been afforded, his pride in Obama. “I want to thank you for being the toughest leader any country could ask for,” Emanuel told his boss.

White House report trumpets N.Y. Fed:: More economic aid likely washington effectiveness of stimulus plan WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama’s $800 billion-plus economic stimulus law may not be earning good grades with the public, but the White House claims it’s on track to produce the promised 3.5 million jobs. Friday’s report says about two-thirds of the stimulus money has been spent via tax cuts or government spending and remarkably little of the money has gone out fraudulently. The stimulus bill was passed in February of last year to try to reverse the worst recession since the Great Depression. The White House and many economists credit it with giving the economy a needed jolt. But Republicans say it’s been ineffective, citing a nationwide unemployment rate still hovering near 10 percent. “We continue to show consistent progress on your commitment to create or save 3.5 million jobs by the end of calendar year 2010,” Vice President Joe Biden wrote in presenting the report to Obama. “In addition, over 95 percent of working families have seen their taxes lowered.” The idea driving the stimulus bill was to inject demand into the economy through federal spending and tax cuts. The report says about $300 billion in spending has gone out for programs such as jobless benefits, government projects, and grants to states to ease layoffs of workers. Another $243 billion has gone to businesses and individuals in tax cuts, including Obama’s signature “Making Work Pay” tax credit of $400 for individuals and $800 for couples. The White House points to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office in claiming the stimulus is delivering as promised. But CBO’s latest estimates say the legislation may have been responsible for as few as 1.4 million jobs. The administration points to a 3.3 million jobs figure at the high end of the wide range offered in CBO’s August report. The White House report also cites a study by noted economists Mark Zandi and Alan Blinder, who estimated that unemployment would have spiked to 11.6 percent by the end of this year had the stimulus measure not been passed.

The associated press

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs speaks about the stimulus program. Still, frustrated voters give the stimulus program low marks in opinion polls, such as a CBS News survey in July in which 56 percent of respondents said it had no impact, while 18 percent said it actually made the economy worse. Republicans say the measure is a leading example of wasteful spending by Washington Democrats. And they hammer a White House prediction that the measure would limit unemployment to 8 percent. “The administration predicted that unemployment wouldn’t rise above 8 percent if the trillion-dollar stimulus became law,” said Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. “We know how that turned out.” The White House counters that the stimulus program gave the economy a boost at a critical time and may have averted a catastrophe. “Sometimes doing what’s right with the economy doesn’t poll well,” said press secretary Robert Gibbs. “My hunch is it wouldn’t poll well if we were in a Great Depression.” The stimulus is winding down in many ways. The $400$800 tax credit expires at the end of the year, and there’s little talk on Capitol Hill of

renewing it as Obama wants. A small, but popular — even Mississippi GOP Gov. Haley Barbour salutes it — stimulus program that is credited with creating 250,000 subsidized jobs expired on Thursday, as Republicans blocked efforts to renew it. But other pieces, such as unemployment insurance for the long-term jobless and aid to state governments and local school boards, have been renewed this year after much wrangling in Congress. Some elements are still getting under way, such as high speed rail grants, federal building projects and billions to upgrade information technology for the health care sector. Republicans have promised to try to roll back the measure if they take control of Congress, but that effort is unlikely to succeed so long as Obama wields his veto pen. And there’s much less money available to rescind than the $260 billion or so Republicans claim, since contracts have been let on much of the unspent money. According to the report, just 0.2 percent of stimulus awards are under investigation for fraud, far less than is typical of other federal programs.

WASHINGTON — The Federal Reserve is likely to take additional action to rejuvenate the economy and lower unemployment, an influential member of the central bank’s policymaking group said Friday. William Dudley, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, said the pace of economic growth has William been disapDudley pointing. And he worries that if the economy doesn’t strengthen, the risk of an outbreak of deflation rises. Deflation is a dangerous and widespread decline in goods and services, wages and in the values of homes and stocks. The Fed is considering buying more government debt to force down rates on mortgages and other loans to entice Americans to spend more. Doing so would bolster the economy. In a speech in New York, Dudley laid out his strongest case for the Fed to take more action. Dudley’s remarks carry weight because he is a permanent voting member of Fed’s main policymaking group. The group’s power to influence interest rates affects Americans’ pocketbooks and shapes overall national economic activity.

cies in Ukraine, the Netherlands and Britain are tracking down international cyber criminals who stole $70 million by using malware that captured passwords and account numbers to log onto online bank accounts. Ukrainian authorities have detained five people thought to have participated in some of the thefts and Ukraine has executed eight search warrants in the ongoing investigation.

Kagan takes her place on high court bench WASHINGTON — Justice Elena Kagan took her seat at the Supreme Court for the first time Friday in front of a packed courtroom that included President Barack Obama. The court session was merely ceremonial. Kagan and the rest of the court will return Monday for the start of the new term. In August, the 50-yearold New Yorker became the third woman on the current court, and its fourth ever. She replaced Justice John Paul Stevens. Kagan took the oath again Friday in a ceremony by which the court formally welcomes its newest member. She wore a black robe she received as a gift from her former colleagues at Harvard Law School, where she served as dean, and a white scarf. It was Obama’s first appearance with the justices as a

group since he criticized the court’s campaign finance decision at his State of the Union speech in January.

Postal Service expects $6B loss this year WASHINGTON — The Postal Service expects to lose about $6 billion this year because of steep declines in mail volume. The announcement comes a day after regulators refused to allow the post office to raise the cost of mailing a letter by 2 cents. Postmaster General John Potter says the post office is still considering whether to appeal that decision or make a new rate hike request. The latest loss is a bit less than the $7 billion the post office had been expecting. But it’s on top of a $3.8 billion loss the year before.

Obama to apologize for U.S. role in experiments WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama plans to call Guatemalan President Alvaro Colom to personally apologize over a disclosure that American scientists deliberately infected Guatemalan prisoners with syphilis decades ago. White House press secretary Robert Gibbs told reporters Friday that the news was “shocking, it’s tragic, it’s reprehensible.” The 1946 experiment was unearthed by a Wellesley College medical historian. It apparently was conducted to test the effectiveness of penicillin.

DR. GEORGE AT WORK This is the second of two articles about how to express yourself briefly in an e-mail. DR. GEORGE R. Some more tips: • Watch couplings and triplings, especially when the words are similar in meaning. For instance, don’t describe someone as friendly and congenial. • Don’t smother verbs. Instead of “I provided help,” write “I helped.” • Use parallel structure. Instead of “He outlined, wrote and was constantly revising,” write “He out-


lined, wrote and constantly revised.” • Make your bottom line your top line. Get to the point. Don’t let the reader guess. In most cases, your first sentence should be your purpose statement. • Put all your e-mails on a diet. Some people get 100 a day. When they see an e-mail from a wordy writer, they cringe. So, try to keep your e-mails at three sentences or fewer. •

October brings rise to stock market NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks started off October on a positive note following mostly good news on the economy. Shares of big manufacturing companies like Boeing Co., General Electric Co. and 3M Co. rose Friday after the Institute for Supply Management said its manufacturing index showed that factory activity was still expanding in September, although not quite as fast as analysts had hoped and slightly slower than the month before. Stock indexes started the day higher but gave up some of their gains late in the day. The market is coming off a major surge that brought the Dow Jones industrial average up 10.4 percent in the third quarter, and its upward momentum may be waning. The Dow and the Standard & Poor’s 500 index both had their first down week after four weeks of gains.

and up 3.9 percent for the year. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 5.04, or 0.4 percent, to 1,146.24. It’s down 0.2 percent for the week and up 2.8 percent for the year. The S&P 500 again touched the 1,150 level in early trading Friday, but was unable to hold above that threshold as it remains somewhat range bound. It was the sixth straight day the S&P came within or breached 1,150, a level it has not closed above since early May. The Nasdaq composite rose 2.13, or 0.1 percent, to 2,370.75. The technology-heavy index is down 0.4 percent for the week and up 4.5 percent for the year, making it the best-performing major stock index for 2010. About two stocks rose for every one that fell on the New York Stock Exchange, where volume came to 1.1 billion shares.

One large trader led to May 6 market plunge WASHINGTON (AP) — A trading firm’s use of a computer sell order triggered the May 6 market plunge, which sent the Dow Jones industrial average plunging nearly 1,000 points in less than a halfhour, federal regulators said Friday. A report by the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission determined that the so-called “flash crash” occurred when the trading firm executed a computerized selling program in an already stressed market. The firm’s trade, worth $4.1 billion, led to a chain of events the ended with market players swiftly pulling their money

from stock market, the report said. The report does not name the trading firm. But only one trade that day fit the description in the report. The firm Waddell & Reed, based in Overland Park, Kan., has acknowledged making such a trade that day. The free-fall highlighted the complexity and perils of the fast-evolving securities markets. Electronic trading platforms now compete with the traditional exchanges. Stocks are traded on about 50 exchanges beyond the New York Stock Exchange and the Nasdaq Stock Market. Computers using mathematical formulas give so-called “high

frequency” traders a split-second edge. Electronic errors at high speeds can ripple through markets. The stock market was already stressed even before the plunge that day. Anxiety was mounting over the debt crisis in Europe. The Dow Jones had been down about 2.5 percent at 2:30 p.m., when the trader placed an enormous sell order on a futures index of the S&P’s index, called the E-Mini S&P 500. The trade was automated by a computer algorithm that was trying to hedge its risk from price declines. In that one trade, 75,000 contracts were sold within 20 minutes. It was the largest trade of that investment since the start

of the year. The firm’s previous transaction of that size took more than five hours, the report notes. The trade triggered aggressive selling of the futures contracts and that sent the index sinking about 3 percent in four minutes. The report said the design of the firm’s trading formula may have amplified the rush to sell. It said the formula ignored price changes and responded to the volume of trading. The automated program sped up the firm’s selling as other market players began trading the first block of futures contracts that flooded the market.

U.S. targets 62 mpg for new cars by 2025 WASHINGTON — Cars and trucks averaging 62 miles per gallon? Seems extraordinary now, but the government suggested Friday that automakers could be required to build new lineups by 2025 that make today’s high-mileage hybrids seem conventional and turn gas guzzlers into relics of the past. It’s all included in potential efficiency ranges the government is considering for new cars and trucks starting in 2017. By a decade and a half from now, in 2025, a carmaker’s fleet of new vehicles may need to meet a standard somewhere from 47 mpg to 62 mpg, the Transportation Department and Environmental Protection Agency said. Those mileage gains that would be the equivalent of an annual decrease in carbon dioxide emissions per mile of 3 to 6 percent. After little progress during the past three decades, rules adopted earlier this year will lift the new vehicle fleet average to 35.5 mpg by 2016, an increase of more than 40 percent over current standards.



Dudley succeeds Hayward as BP’s CEO NEW ORLEANS — Two of the faces best known to the public in the aftermath of the Gulf oil spill have stepped down from their jobs. The chief executive of BP PLC, Tony Hayward, is being succeeded by American Bob Dudley. Hayward was criticized for his handling of the crisis following the April 20 rig explosion and illconceived comments about wanting the disaster to be resolved so he could get his life back. Also Friday, Retired Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen stepped aside as head of the national incident command overseeing the government’s response to the oil spill. Rear Adm. Paul Zukunft succeeds him. Both moves had already been announced, but they became official on Friday. Allen has said the timing is a coincidence.


Financial council pledges openness WASHINGTON — The new council of top regulators charged with making the financial system safer is pledging to do as much of its work in the open as possible. The Financial Stability Oversight Council held an organizational session Friday and adopted a “transparency policy.” That policy says the council will only close its meetings when the discussions involve market-sensitive or confidential supervisory information. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, the chairman of the group, said he believes the new guidelines

Anti-American cleric vies for more power in Iraq BAGHDAD — A Muslim cleric who once used a militia to resist the American invasion positioned himself as a big winner in Iraq’s monthslong political deadlock Friday when his party threw its support behind the beleaguered prime minister. The hard-line Shiite group led by Muqtada al-Sadr called it the start of its ascent to nationwide power — a specter sure to spook the United States. Washington considers the cleric a threat to Iraq’s shaky security and has long refused to consider his movement a legitimate political entity. But Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki may be unable to govern without him. March elections failed to produce a clear winner and left the nation in turmoil — a power vacuum that U.S. mili-

JAKARTA, Indonesia — A train crash in central Indonesia killed at least 43 people and injured dozens Saturday, many suffering burns and broken bones, hospital officials and witnesses said. The accident occurred near a station in Petarukan, a city on the northern coast of Central Java province, at around 3 a.m. — 8 p.m. Central time Friday — as many passengers were sleeping, witnesses told TVOne.

7 jailed dissidents reject leaving Cuba HAVANA — At least seven dissidents due to be freed from Cuban jails under an agreement reached with the help of the Roman Catholic Church do not want to leave their homeland for exile in Spain, the island’s top cardinal said Friday. In July, Cuba’s government agreed that over a four-month period it would release 52 political prisoners jailed in a 2003 crackdown on dissent. Thirty-nine of them have been let out so far, and all have accepted asylum in Spain.

marine Murphy got them to promise to read over the weekend — Friday nights, Saturday mornings and Sunday nights — and local NAACP president John Shorter reminded them that writing letters is another fun way to improve reading skills. “You never stop learning,” Shorter said. “If you can read, you can do anything.”

Coming out in support were state Sen. Briggs Hopson III, Warren County District 1 Supervisor David McDonald, Chamber of Commerce executive director Christie Kilroy, insurance agents Robyn Lea and Kim Ferguson, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers public affairs officer Shirley Smith and school officials and principals. The program was recorded

for local cable channel 16, the district’s broadcast outlet, and Swinford included an appeal to adults to spend lots of time in the schools, sharing stories they love and letting the kids know how important reading has been and continues to be in their lives. “This is technically a fivemonth program but it should be a forever and ever, amen,

sort of program,” said Sherman Avenue principal Ray Hume. Those who would like to come in and read to students can call their neighborhood school — including junior high and high schools — to get set up with a classroom, Swinford said. Any amount of volunteer time would be appreciated, she said.

The multi-pronged scope of the emerging terror plan — which aimed to launch coordinated shooting rampages or attacks in Britain, France and Germany — is an alQaida hallmark. U.S. officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss intelligence mat-

ters, declined to reveal what evidence they have that bin Laden took a more prominent role in this plan. And one U.S. intelligence official cautioned that the details of how the plan was directed or coordinated by the group’s core leaders is not yet clear. The involvement of bin Laden and his devoted leaders, believed to be in hiding in Pakistan, underscores continuing U.S. concerns about that country’s role as a safe haven for al-Qaida and other Islamic extremists. And it reflects al-Qaida’s persistent effort — through video and online messages — to inspire its followers to wage attacks against the West. The threat to Europe

was highlighted when bin Laden issued a call to arms in March 2008 after a Danish newspaper printed controversial cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad. He warned Europeans in an audio message that there would be a “severe” reaction to come. Rep. Pete Hoekstra, R-Mich., the senior Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, said that bin Laden may simply be trying to re-exert himself. And his role in the European plot could suggest a lack of confidence by al-Qaida central in the ability of other affiliated groups in Yemen or Africa to carry out a successful attack on their own,

Hoekstra said. Over the past year, several terror attacks in the U.S. have either failed or been foiled, including the botched attempts to bring down a Detroit-bound airliner on Christmas Day and to set off a bomb in New York’s Time Square. A Pakistani intelligence official said Thursday that eight Germans and two British brothers are at the heart of the European terror plot, which is still in its early stages. One of the Britons was killed in a recent CIA missile strike, he said. Pakistan, Britain and Germany are tracking the suspects and intercepting their phone calls, the official told

The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to release the information to the media. U.S. officials have pressed Pakistan to increase its efforts to root out the militants hiding in the mountainous border region. The U.S. has dramatically stepped up its missile attacks in North Waziristan, and is believed to have launched at least 21 this month. The covert campaign is largely carried out by CIA drones and has led to the deaths of a number of top militant leaders.

Jury gets case of man charged in Conn. home invasion NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Two Connecticut men charged with killing a woman and her two daughters in a 2007 house invasion inflicted unimaginable terror on a model family that had enjoyed their final pleasant summer day together, prosecutors told a jury during closing arguments Friday. Prosecutor Gary Nicholson said it was impossible to recreate the fear the two girls, 11-year-old Michaela and Steven 17-year-old Hayes Hayley Petit, felt when the men tied them to their beds and poured gasoline on or around them before setting their Cheshire house on fire. “Hayley and Michaela Petit knew that the end was near,” Nicholson said. “They knew they were about to die.” The jury in New Haven will begin deliberating Monday in the trial of Steven Hayes, who along with Joshua Komisarjevsky is accused of killing the girls and their mother, Jennifer Hawke-Petit. The girls’ father, Dr. William Petit, was beaten with a baseball bat and tied up in the basement, but managed to escape and make it to a neighbor’s house to get help. If Hayes is convicted, the same jury will consider whether he should receive the death penalty in a separate penalty phase. Komisarjevsky will be tried next year. Tom Ullmann, Hayes’ attorney, said in his closing argument that it was Komisarjevsky who began the violence by attacking Dr. Petit with a baseball bat. “At every critical junction, when the plans changed it was because Joshua Komisarjevsky escalated the level of violence,” Ullmann said. Ullmann acknowledged Hayes sexually assaulted and killed Hawke-Petit, but he said Komisarjevsky was the one in control and had the motive to kill the girls because he had sexually assaulted one of them and had poured bleach on her clothes to try to eliminate his DNA. At one point, he described Hayes as a petty thief.

‘people’s minds will change’

American balloonists who plunged into Adriatic feared dead

The associated press

Rutgers University students sign condolence cards Friday for the family of fellow student Tyler Clementi. Below, Clementi plays the violin during a high school performance in 2008.

Student’s suicide resonates beyond campus NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) — “Things will get easier; people’s minds will change,” Ellen DeGeneres pleads in an Internet video, her voice breaking. “And you should be alive to see it.” Just as the murder of Matthew Shepard galvanized the gay community around hatecrime legislation more than a decade ago, the suicide of a Rutgers University student whose sex life was splashed on the Internet has activists rallying around their latest cause: telling tormented gay teens they just need to hang on for a while. Bullying and harassment of young gays and lesbians, and the suicides they have caused, have long been a major topic in gay publications and among activists. But celebrities and others have seized on Tyler Clementi’s shocking suicide to call attention to the issue. Prosecutors say Clementi’s roommate and another student used a webcam to broadcast on the Internet live images of the 18-year-old Rutgers University freshman having an intimate encounter with another man. Clementi jumped off the George Washington Bridge three days later. His body was identified Thursday. “To this poor kid, it’s better to be dead than to have people know he’s gay,” said JeanMarie Navetta, a spokesman

for Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays. “Therein lies the real tragedy here.” Clementi’s death was part of a string of suicides last month involving youngsters who were believed to have been victims of anti-gay bullying. Fifteen-year-old Billy Lucas hanged himself in a barn in Greensburg, Ind. Asher Brown, 13, shot himself in the head in Houston. And 13-yearold Seth Walsh of Tehachapi, Calif., hanged himself from a tree in his backyard.

The outpouring of emotion over Clementi’s death recalls the reaction to the killing of Shepard, a gay, 21-year-old student at the University of Wyoming. He was found beaten and tied to a lonely fence post in 1998. Two men were convicted in the slaying. Several states passed hate-crime laws in the aftermath of the crime. DeGeneres, one of the first Hollywood celebrities to come out of the closet, posted a video this week in response to Clementi’s suicide.

“My heart is breaking for their families, their friends and for our society that continues to let this happen,” the talk show host says in the video. “These kids needed us. We have an obligation to change this.” Last month, before Clementi’s suicide became known, syndicated sex columnist Dan Savage launched the It Gets Better Project, a series of online videos delivered by adult gays and lesbians designed to tell young people that they can survive harassment and have happy lives. The suicide has generated more attention for the project, as well as for a campaign started recently by Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays to persuade gay young people to report harassment. Two New Jersey lawmakers said they would introduce legislation to strengthen the state’s anti-bullying law, and another legislator called for stiffer penalties for invasion of privacy. Clementi’s roommate, Dharun Ravi of Plainsboro, N.J., and another student, Molly Wei of Princeton, N.J., both 18, are charged with invasion of privacy, with the most serious charges carrying up to five years in prison. Prosecutors said they are also looking into the possibility of filing bias charges.

BARI, Italy (AP) — Two missing American balloonists plunged toward the Adriatic Sea at 50 mph and likely didn’t survive, race organizers said Friday. Flight director Don Cameron said that high rate of descent, if confirmed, leads him to be “very pessimistic” about the fate of veteran pilots Richard Abruzzo and Carol Rymer Davis. Abruzzo, 47, of Albuquerque, N.M., and Davis, 65, of Denver, were participating in the 54th Gordon Bennett Gas Balloon Race when contact was lost Wednesday morning in rough weather over the Adriatic Sea. Race organizers said the balloon “appears to have suffered a sudden and unexpected failure.” “It’s very bad news,” Cameron said. Cameron said he received information Friday from Zagreb’s air Richard traffic control Abruzzo indicating the balloon was at 5,300 feet and descended slowly at first but then at a rate of 50 mph until 600 feet. “At this rate ... survival would be unlikely,” the race organizers said in a statement. Cameron stressed that the Croatian readings were from the outer limits of its radar zone, though, and said he hoped they were incorrect. The Italian coast guard, the U.S. Navy and Croatian coastal aircraft crews have been scouring the area around Croatia’s distant, uninhabited islet of Palagruza. Abruzzo works in a family business in Albuquerque that is involved in real estate and operations of the Sandia Peak tramway, Sandia Ski Area and Ski Santa Fe. Richard Abruzzo’s involvement focuses on ski area management. Davis is a radiologist. The Abruzzo name is synonymous with ballooning. Abruzzo is the son of famed balloonist Ben Abruzzo, who was in 1981 part of the first team to cross the Pacific Ocean by balloon, and who was killed in a small airplane crash in 1985.

Grand jury indicts accused Calif. kidnappers PLACERVILLE, Calif. — A grand jury on Friday indicted the couple accused of kidnapping and raping Jaycee Dugard, who was held for 18 years in California. Phillip and Nancy Garrido were each indicted on 18 counts plus multiple special allegations in a process that will eliminate the need for a preliminary hearing, where their alleged victim may have had to testify. District Attorney Vern Pierson said in court the indictment was sought to spare Dugard and her family from having to take the witness stand until the trial. The Garridos previously were charged with 29 counts each. The revised charges include kidnapping, forcible rape, lewd acts on a child and false imprisonment. Among the allegations in the indictment are that the couple produced child pornography with the victim.

Mich. mom who faked son’s cancer arraigned ROSEVILLE, Mich. — An unemployed Detroit-area mother accused of drugging and shaving her healthy 12-year-old son so he appeared to have cancer, then accepting


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS thousands of dollars in donations for his treatment, was arraigned Friday on charges of fraud and child abuse. A Roseville district court judge ordered Carol Lynn Schnuphase, 47, of Warren, held on $100,000 bond. A hospital has tested the boy and declared him cancer-free, although he was going through opiate withdrawal, Smith said. Authorities haven’t yet determined what drugs were in the boy’s system and are awaiting hospital test results. Court records indicate Schnuphase told her son he had leukemia.

Death toll rises as storms rip East LEVITTOWN, N.Y. — Flooding posed a threat around the Northeast on Friday on the heels of a pounding storm that submerged cars, cut power to thousands and forced scattered evacuations as it crept up the East Coast. The storm was blamed for five deaths in North Carolina on Thursday and a sixth in Pennsylvania on Friday — a woman who apparently drove her car into a

rain-swollen creek before daybreak.

Video game drops Taliban label WASHINGTON — The makers of a new video game based in Afghanistan said Friday they have removed the option for players to call themselves members of the Taliban when pretending to shoot at U.S. troops.

Electronic Arts, a major game developer based in Redwood City, Calif., said it has dropped the Taliban label from a version of its “Medal of Honor” video game after families of troops complained it was offensive. Military bases across the U.S. had banned the sale of the game in reaction to those family protests.

Woman questions future with older man Q: I have just entered into a relationship with a man I really love and care for. I have one small but nagging concern — I’m 22 and he’s almost 40. Will it be a problem in the future? Jim: There’s nothing inherently wrong with such an arrangement, but there are certainly some things you should consider. The first has to do with the basic difference in your life experiences. You’re barely beyond college age; he’s approaching midlife and has already spent considerable time in the adult world. He will have achieved a greater degree of maturity. Now, I’m not accusFOCUS ON ing you of being THE FAMILY “immature.” And it’s quite possible that he’s young at heart. But you should honestly consider whether FOCUS ON the difTHE FAMILY ference in your levels of life experience will impact your relationship before forging ahead. Some young women are attracted to older men because they’re really looking for a father figure. The men recognize this and end up controlling their younger girlfriends. Consider whether you view your boyfriend as a peer and partner, or if you’re seeking to meet an unmet father-need. If it’s the latter, you should put a halt to the relationship. Q: When I got engaged, I got a hostile reaction from my parents, especially my mom. She believes we’re too young, though we’re both in our mid-20s! Why? Juli: It’s fairly normal for parents to have some anxiety. You already see it will be difficult for your mom to let you go. Having said that, your parents might also have legitimate concerns about your engagement. Often they can see something that you can’t. For example, they may observe that your fiance is controlling. If they’re hitting on something that could be true, validate the concern. This attitude will assure your parents that you’re going into marriage with your eyes wide open. If they continue to harp on the same concerns, remind them that you’ve already talked about that. •

‘Testaments of the Heart’ Music from Holocaust captures culture of camps

Italian composer and pianist Francesco Lotoro leads musicians at Emory University in a rehearsal for “Testaments of the Heart,” a fundraiser to collect and preserve music produced by captives of Germany and other countries, including Japan, from 1933 to 1945.

By The Associated Press ATLANTA — Some songs are slow, emotional, almost weepy symphonies. Others are driving and angry pub songs. A few are sarcastic jazz numbers. Others are shockingly upbeat — happy almost — as if the music lifted the composers out of the Nazi prison camps where they lived, saved them for just a moment from their horrific, torturous existence. A handful of the countless songs written by victims of the Holocaust and other World War II prisoners made their world premiere at Emory University in Atlanta this week during “Testaments of the Heart,” a program to help raise money to collect and preserve more of the music produced by captives of Germany and other countries, including Japan, from 1933 to 1945. Already thousands of the songs have been collected by Italian pianist and conductor Francesco Lotoro — who was in Atlanta to play in the concert — in a 20-year effort to ensure the music is preserved for generations to come. And he plans to house that collection at Emory once he raises the money to transfer it to the private universi-

ty’s library. “We as the world are the ones who have all been denied this wealth,” Lotoro said through a translator. “There is a gaping hole in the musical history and culture of the world. This work has to continue to fill that hole and be the foundation for current and future musical culture.” With musicians from the Atlanta area, Lotoro presented — some for the first time — pieces that were scribbled in diaries, carved into wood and even written

on toilet paper. The music ranges from short songs to full operas and symphonies. The group played the last piece ever written by Austrian musician and conductor Viktor Ullmann, who studied under Arnold Schoenberg and who died at Auschwitz in 1944. The haunting piano melody is set to a poem by Rainer Maria Rilke about a warrior from the 17th century. Another piece was by British pianist William Hilsley, who was prolific during his time in various German

camps for British nationals and wrote sarcastically about his prison life. Before he died in 2003, he published his diary from his time in captivity as a book. “Numbers, that’s what we are now,” goes one song by Hilsley. “Not for thieving, nor deceiving, not for cheating nor wife beating are we locked in here.” Another piece called “Banner in the Sky” was written by Gordon Sage, an American prisoner of war in the Mukden prison camp in Manchuria and a survivor

of the Bataan Death March. It featured a full band and chorus and has strains of the National Anthem running through it. Another song is by Emile Goue, a French composer who died in 1946 from health problems developed while he was in a German POW camp. His dark string quartet piece was accompanied by a slideshow of family photographs of Holocaust victims before they were imprisoned, images found by photographer Ann Weiss at Auschwitz in the 1980s. Weiss’ photos are on exhibit at Emory until Nov. 12 with dozens of the images scattered in buildings across the campus. The music of the prisoners was preserved in many ways: passed on from person to person in camps until it was smuggled out, given to family members who were safe from the Nazis or simply found after the camps were liberated. Many of the songs were written in Theresienstadt, a Czech town used as a Nazi propaganda tool where prisoners could stage operas, concerts and cabaret shows. The camp saw many Jewish leaders and prominent artists from all over Europe. But See Holocaust, Page B4.

Americans don’t know much about religion, survey says By Rachel Zoll AP religion writer A new survey of Americans’ knowledge of religion found that atheists, agnostics, Jews and Mormons outperformed Protestants and Roman Catholics in answering questions about major religions, while many respondents could not correctly give the most basic tenets of their own faiths. Forty-five percent of Roman Catholics who participated in the study didn’t know that, according to church teaching, the bread and wine used

Atheists and agnostics scored highest, with an average of 21 correct answers, while Jews and Mormons followed with about 20 accurate responses. Protestants overall averaged 16 correct answers, while Catholics followed with a score of about 15. in Holy Communion is not just a symbol, but becomes the body and blood of Christ. More than half of Protestants could not identify Martin Luther as the person who inspired the Protestant Reformation. And about four in 10 Jews did not know that Maimonides, one of the greatest rabbis and intellectuals in history, was Jewish. The survey released this week by the Pew Forum on

Religion & Public Life aimed to test a broad range of religious knowledge, including understanding of the Bible, core teachings of different faiths and major figures in religious history. The U.S. is one of the most religious countries in the developed world, especially compared to largely secular Western Europe, but faith leaders have long lamented that Americans still know little

about religion. Respondents were asked 32 questions, including whether they could name the Islamic holy book and the first book of the Bible, or say what century the Mormon religion was founded. On average, participants in the survey answered correctly overall for half the questions. Atheists and agnostics scored highest, with an average of 21 correct answers,

while Jews and Mormons followed with about 20 accurate responses. Protestants overall averaged 16 correct answers, while Catholics followed with a score of 15. Not surprisingly, those who said they attended worship at least once a week and considered religion important often performed better on the overall survey. However, level of education was the best predictor of religious knowledge. The top-performing groups on the survey still came out ahead even when considering how much schooling they had completed.

devotion “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.” 1 Peter 2.9 • Christians are a kingdom of priests, so in order to understand what that means, let’s look at what someone had to do to become a priest in the Old Testament. • The first thing the priest did was bathe from head to toe. This symbolized that he was saved (see Titus 3:5). When we are saved, we are bathed from head to toe in Christ’s cleansing blood. After his bath, the priest received a linen garment, which symbolized the righteousness that is provided by our Lord. Then he was anointed with oil, which is symbolic of the Holy Spirit. • How encouraging to discover God’s Word flowing from the Old to the New Testament to describe such essential details of the believer.

Music Continued from Page B1. some songs are from prisoners who had never before written music but felt the urge to create something beautiful among their horrific surroundings. Lotoro has slowly been recording all the music on a set of 24 albums whenever he can cobble together the money and the musicians. Ultimately, he hopes to record all the 4,000 pieces he’s found so far and estimates there are likely only another 1,500 in existence — which he says pales in comparison to the music lost during the war. Lotoro began collecting the music in 1991 during a trip to Prague Alfred Schneider, a Holocaust survivor at Tuesday’s concert, said it’s “moving” that Lotoro would spend decades collecting these songs to be preserved. “I find it electrifying,” said Schneider, 83, a retired Georgia Tech professor who was spared from the German death camps by the mayor of his Austrian hometown, Czernowitz, which is now part of Ukraine. Lotoro’s ultimate goal has been to present the music the way the composers originally intended, which can be an odd combination of sounds. Many of the writers had few instruments available to them, so some music is written for a guitar, two flutes and a clarinet or a trombone, an alto sax and a clarinet.

Brendon de Jonge leads Viking Classic

MADISON (AP) — Brendon de Jonge used a fast early start to shoot his second straight 66 on Friday, then sat back and waited to see whether anyone could catch him. Bill Haas answered the challenge with another 66, joining de Jonge at 12 under after two rounds. Neither leader had a bogey during their second round at Annandale Golf Club. De Jonge, who made his 30th start this year at the Viking Classic, never held a second-round lead before, although he has finished in the Top 10 six times this year. “You never want to say it’s an easy round,” he said. “I felt like it could have been a couple better, but I’ll take 66 any time.” De Jonge, 36th on the PGA money list, is still looking for his first victory. “I’ve been there late on Sunday several times this year,” he said. “Obviously, I haven’t been able to close the deal, but I’ve definitely had some very good opportunities this year.” Haas, who shot back-toback bogey-free rounds, credited his putting for keeping him from bogeying.

Flawless victory for Eagles Marshall scores three TDs in romp of Russell Christian By Steve Wilson Porters Chapel didn’t even let the fans at Eagle Stadium get the seats warm before the scoreboard lit up. Chris Marshall took back the opening kickoff 71 yards for one touchdown and two plays later, took an interception return 25 yards to the house to ignite a 62-0 rout of Russell Christian. He also scored the final PCA touchdown on an 83-yard punt return. The win sets up a winnertake-all game in the regular season finale at Newton Academy for District 5-A’s final playoff spot. “A district win is a district win,” PCA coach John Weaver said. “We knew this one was important. This sets us up in a showdown at the end of the season. We saw a lot of bright spots tonight. A lot of young guys got playing time tonight. A good win.” The Eagles didn’t let off the gas after Marshall’s two scores. Matthew Warren recovered a muffed shotgun snap ant the Russell 18 and three plays later, Peter Harris rumbled into the end zone for the third score of the quarter. Jake Boyd capped the first-quarter onslaught with a 1-yard scoring run to put the Eagles up 27-0. In the second quarter, Chris Williams scored the first of two rushing TDs for him on the night and Jonah Masterson led the Eagles on their longest drive, a 12-play, 80-yard masterpiece capped by a 5-yard toss to Boyd to close out the first-half scoring.

By Jeff Byrd B.J. Smithhart felt the best chance for his St. Aloysius Flashes to hang with the speed of the Dexter Bulldogs was to go two tight ends and run the ball out of the powerI set. The plan worked well in the first and fourth quarters but Dexter’s balanced offense proved too much in a 28-7 victory that spoiled St. Al’s homecoming Friday at Balzli Field. The visiting Bulldogs got 147 yards passing and two touchdowns from quarterback Tyler Hart to overcome St. Al’s smashmouth attack. “They are just so fast that we wanted to go two tights and go right at them,” Smithhart said. “We had some bad things happen to us in the first half. We had a couple of turnovers, some penalties. We played hard to the end and I liked how we got after

Golf Wardrobe malfunction: US Ryder Cup golfers soaked NEWPORT, Wales — Call it Water(proof)gate. The dozen golfers on the U.S. Ryder Cup team got a soggy surprise on the opening day of competition when the rain gear they brought from the States didn’t work any better than it looked. Caught in a morning downpour at the Celtic Manor course that forced a seven-hour, 18-minute delay Friday, the players huddled in the clubhouse to dry off while PGA of America officials scrambled for a solution. Eventually, those officials tramped over to the merchandise tent and bought 20 new suits with Ryder Cup logos on them — tan for the players and red for the caddies, all of them indistinguishable from the gear any fan could buy. U.S. captain Corey Pavin was already on the defensive for a gaffe during Thursday’s opening ceremonies when he forgot to mention Stewart Cink during player introductions. A day later, he found himself in the embarrassing position of explaining his choice of outerwear that had several of his players and their caddies grousing. The U.S. team walked off the course when play was suspended down 3-1 in the four better-ball matches on the course. By the time play resumed in late afternoon, then was suspended a second time due to darkness, the Americans had surged to a 2-1 lead, with the fourth match tied.

NFL NFL fines Oher, Zbikowksi each $5,000 OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Baltimore Ravens offensive tackle Michael Oher and safety Tom Zbikowski have each been fined $5,000 by the NFL for their actions in Sunday’s game against Cleveland. The NFL announced the fines Friday. Oher’s fine stems from punching Browns defensive end Robaire Smith.

By David Brandt AP sports writer Mississippi State’s K.J. Wright has been a good linebacker for quite a while. But in an effort to get the 6-foot-4, 250-pound senior to take the next step into stardom, defensive coordinator Manny Diaz showed him film of Baltimore Ravens’ All-Pro linebacker Ray Lewis. Not just a great football player, Lewis is considered one of the NFL’s strongest leaders. At least for one game, Wright showed some of those qualities with a big game as Mississippi State beat Georgia last week for the first time since 1974. For the season, Wright leads MSU with 30 tackles, six pass breakups and six passes defended and three quarterback hurries. “Everybody can give a big Hollywood speech,” Diaz said. “But the way you lead is with your feet and with your shoulder pads. K.J. has done an amazing job of doing both.” Mississippi State (2-2) hosts Alcorn State (3-0), a team that

On TV 11 a.m. FSN Mississippi State hosts Alcorn State plays at the Football Championship Subdivision level, at 11 a.m. on Saturday in Starkville. Today’s game starts a stretch of winnable games that could determine whether the Bulldogs are able to earn bowl eligibility for the first time since 2007 and only the second time this decade. After the Alcorn State game, the Bulldogs travel to face Houston, a team severely diminished after star quarterback Case Keenum was lost to a season-ending knee

injury. They face a tough road game against Florida before returning to Starkville for home games against UAB and Kentucky. “We need to improve as a football team and get ready for that finishing stretch ... that’s going to be critical,” said coach Dan Mullen. Mississippi State’s final three games are against Alabama, Arkansas and an instate rivalry game against Mississippi. Alcorn State has won its three games this season by a combined score of 118-57. Led by second-year coach Earnest Collins, the Braves have gained 1,041 yards of total offense. It’s the first meeting between the two schools.

OXFORD — Just four games into the season, the Ole Miss defense is hurting. Defensive end Kentrell Lockett is out for the season, hobbling around on crutches after tearing his ACL. Safety Johnny Brown has a sore knee. Cornerback Jeremy McGee is recovering from a concussion. And that’s bad news for the Rebels, considering they were already having trouble stopping opponents before the rash of injuries. They’re giving up 32 points per game, which ranks last in the Southeastern Conference. Now with a patchwork defense, including several freshmen in the secondary, Ole Miss (2-2, 0-1 SEC) faces a Kentucky (3-1, 0-1) team known for explosive offensive playmakers Randall Cobb and Derrick Locke at 11:21 a.m. today at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt said his young players are physically capable, but their inexperience scares him. “Those guys have to keep absorbing, study, and keep getting better,” he said. “It’s not easy ... it takes time for them to really feel the speed of this league that we’re in. It’s not easy, but I have confidence in those guys. They have to get to practice and go to work.” Even the Ole Miss defensive players who aren’t hurt

On TV 11:20 a.m. WJTV Ole Miss hosts Kentucky have failed to live up to expectations. The veteran defensive line, which was supposed to be dominant, hasn’t been able to get much pressure on quarterbacks. With plenty of time to throw, opponents have picked apart the Ole Miss secondary. The Rebels are one of only three teams out of 120 in

the Football Bowl Subdivision with no interceptions. Now that Lockett, who was arguably the Rebels’ best pass rusher, can’t help on the field, others like junior college transfer Wayne Dorsey must improve quickly. At 6-foot-6 and 265 pounds, Dorsey was one of the most heavily recruited junior college players in the country last year, but hasn’t had the desired onfield affect with six tackles, including two for a loss and a sack through four games.

Blue Waves score win with 10 seconds to spare Golden Eagles shoot Prep Football

From staff reports The Blue Waves made it two straight road wins with a victory in their Region 7-4A opener at Columbia when Rodney Bee scored on a 10-yard pass from quarterback Silento Sayles with 10 seconds left in the game. Port Gibson improves to 5-2 overall. Tommy McAlpin got the Blue Waves’ other touchdown. Mitchell Hoskins paced the defense with 11 solo tackles.

runs of 30, 14, 52, 66, 30 and 10 yards. The last three came in the fourth quarter to turn a deficit into a 22-point win. Briarfield improved to 5-2 and 3-0 in district play. Neil Brown had two interceptions and a pair of twopoint conversions while Matt Dennis scored on a 48-yard run.

The War Dawgs scored first but couldn’t stop the Cobras as Wesson reeled off 45 straight points in the region opener. The loss drops Hinds AHS to 1-5 overall. The unbeaten Cobras improved to 6-0. Hinds got an opening touch-

down on an 11-yard pass from Aaron Terrell to Reginald Warnsley. DeAndre Selmon had 90 yards rushing and two scores on runs of 1 and 45 yards for the War Dawgs.

Central Hinds 40, Benton Academy 11 Hunter Farrior ran for two touchdowns and threw for another as the Cougars stepped out of district play to smash Benton Academy. Farrior opened the game with TD runs of 27 and 9 yards and added a two-point conversion as the Cougars (6-1) built a 15-0 lead. Benton got a 27-yard field goal but the Cougars came back with Lee Douglas catching a 38-yard TD pass and then

scored on a 20-yard run. Pate Demuth added a 39-yard field goal as Central Hinds led 32-3 at the half, Dallas Townsend completed Central’s scoring in the third quarter on a 2-yard run.

Tallulah Academy 34, Wilkinson Christian 32 The Trojans made a twopoint conversion in overtime to beat Wilkinson County Christian. Cody Landrem had 190 yards rushing and four TDs, including the game-tying score in OT. On the extra point, Hunter Windham picked up the bad snap and found Landon Reddick for a game-winning two-point conversion pass hookup.

Kurterrius Taylor rushed for 169 yards and four touchdowns, Terrence Brown added 95 yards and a score, and Northwest Rankin set a school record for points scored in a 76-42 victory over Vicksburg. The 76 points was also the most ever surrendered by a Vicksburg High team. Northwest Rankin (6-0, 2-0 Region 2-6A) did not punt, had just one play result in negative yardage, and only faced two third downs in the game. “It was the greatest feeling ever,” Taylor said of Northwest’s offensive proficiency. “We knew what we were going to do was push the ball down their throat.” For Vicksburg (0-6, 0-2),

Cameron Cooksey completed 34 of 50 passes for 372 yards and two touchdowns, and Milan Nasif caught a single-game county record 14 passes for 141 yards and a score. Namonta Gaines caught seven passes for 90 yards and a TD. Cooksey’s second consecutive 300-yard game made him only the second player in county history to have two 300-yard games in a career. Vicksburg and Northwest Rankin combined for 985 yards of offense in the game. In the last two games, Vicksburg has scored 87 points but allowed 131. “We’re in a zone on offense. We’ve just got to come together as one defense. You can’t win a ballgame on one side of the ball,” said VHS running back Kawayne Gaston, who ran for 82 yards and three touchdowns.

For all of the Gators’ offensive success, it was their first three drives that did them in. An interception and two fumbles — one of which was returned 38 yards for a score by Will Freeman — were turned into touchdowns by Northwest, giving the Cougars a 21-0 lead at the end of the first quarter. Gaston’s 1-yard touchdown run on the first play of the second quarter put the Gators on the board. They scored on five consecutive possessions at one point and actually outgained Northwest Rankin by 55 yards, but the early miscues continued to hang over them like a cloud. The closest Vicksburg got was 13 points, after Cooksey’s 10-yard TD pass to Gaines cut it to 55-42 with 8:01 left in the game. “It eats at you, because it‘s miscommunication and it

could’ve been avoided,” Nasif said of the early mistakes. “We just have to work on it in practice, I guess.” Although Vicksburg was never able to make a push for the lead, the game wasn’t sealed until the final minutes. Taylor’s 9-yard TD run — his fourth of the game — gave Northwest a 62-42 lead with 5:18 to play. Two plays later, Terrell Hodges returned a Cooksey interception 42 yards for a score to make it a four-touchdown game and finally put it on ice. “Fumbles, mental mistakes. You’re playing a team like Northwest Rankin and you can’t have many mistakes. You can’t have any mistakes,” Gaston said. “It’s frustrating. Everybody’s on the trail and sometimes you’re not on the trail. It’s all about how you overcome the situation.”

in the power set and on its second possession, grinded out a first down. Then a bad snap cost them 20 yards and it changed the complexion of the game. St. Al had to punt out of its own end zone and Dexter received good field position at the St. Al 34. It took two plays for the Bulldogs to score as Rasheen Robinson went in from 5 yards out. Chris Cooley added the kick for a 7-0 lead with 4:12 left in the first quarter. St. Al had a fumble and an

interception to thwart its possessions in the second quarter. Hart got the passing going in the second quarter and hit two completions for touchdowns to extend the lead to 20-0. The first TD toss went to Cooley for 28 yards to convert a fourth-and-16. The second score came with 47 seconds left in the half on a 20-yarder to Dante Butler. Dexter put the game away on its first possession of the second half, going 72 yards in 10 plays. Hart scored on

a 10-yard run and the twopoint conversion pass to Cooley made it 28-0. Hart finished the game 10-of-16 for 147 yards. The Bulldogs had 165 rushing. Carlton Campbell had an impressive game running the ball, finishing with 115 yards on 25 carries. Jones had 76 on 16 carries. The Flashes threw just four passes, completing one for seven yards.

The drive ended with Mac Jones falling on his fumble in the end zone for the touchdown. Blake Hudson added the PAT kick. The bad news for the Flashes was that when the drive began on the last play of the third quarter, they were down 28-0. Jones’ score and Hudson’s kick made it 28-7 with 2:47 left in the game. St. Al started the game

for finishing drives By David Brandt AP sports writer The Southern Miss offense has followed a troubling trend. The Golden Eagles get plenty of yards and first downs, but when it comes time to finish the drive with a touchdown, things become much more difficult. Southern Miss coach Larry Fedora says that has to change if Southern Miss (3-1) is going to beat Marshall (1-3) in the Conference USA opener for both teams. The Thundering Herd are off to a rough start this season, but had one of the best defenses in the league last year. “It’s been frustrating,” Southern Miss center Cameron Zipp said. “But we can’t be making all these excuses. We just have to finish, period. We work on it every day.” The Golden Eagles have scored on only 11 of 17 (65 percent) of their trips inside the 20-yard line, which ranks 114th out of 120 Football Bowl Subdivision teams. They’ve scored touchdowns on only 6 of 17 (35 percent) of those opportunities. Fedora said there’s been several plays this season that could have been touchdowns, but his team failed to make the final knockdown block that could spring a running back or receiver into the open. “We have to be more tenacious and finish our blocks,” Fedora said. “We cannot just

On TV 7 p.m. CBS College Sports Marshall at Southern Miss block them as long as we think we need to and then just let them go. We have to finish them. We have a lot of work to do in that area this week.” The Golden Eagles are trying to overcome several injuries to their offense. Starting right tackle Jason Weaver was lost for the season last week after suffering a knee injury. Several others, including star receiver DeAndre Brown, will be playing at less than full strength if they play at all. Even so, Marshall coach Doc Holliday said he expects Southern Miss to provide a challenge for his defense. “Where they get you is with their tempo,” Holliday said. “They do a great job of making it hard for you to substitute on defense.” Southern Miss has won three straight games, including a 13-12 road victory over Louisiana Tech last weekend. But the Golden Eagles felt they left several points on the field. They ran 92 plays, gained 425 yards and dominated time of possession, yet had to settle for just one touchdown and two field goals. “I expect them to bounce back and play at a very high level this week and do not see any reason why they won’t,” Fedora said.

WC Continued from Page C1. 30-yard line that the Viking offense came away with points. The Vikings had a shot early in the third quarter. Louis Carson came up with a leaping interception to put WC in position in Greenville territory. But Shon Jackson fumbled a few plays later to end the threat.

Warren Central had one last gasp on the Greenville 22-yard line, but quarterback Beau Wallace was sacked as time expired to end the threat. The road doesn’t get any easier for the Vikings, as they host undefeated region foe Madison Central next week.

Hilton’s life showing anew on Oxygen

Paris Hilton

Oxygen is putting Paris Hilton back on the air in another reality series documenting her life. The network said this week that the series is so far untitled and will be an all-encompassing look at the hotel heiress’ friends, family and relationships. The series has not yet begun production. No premiere date has been set. Her previous TV series have included “The Simple Life” and “My New BFF.”

Fox sports channels, MSG drop off Dish Satellite TV operator Dish Network Corp. said Friday that News Corp.’s Fox television unit cut its access to 19 regional sports networks, FX and the National Geographic Channel after Dish refused to pay for a rate increase of more than 50 percent. In a related development, Dish also stopped carrying MSG and MSG Plus, affecting New York-area sports fans, saying it refused to accept a “double digit” percentage rate hike proposal linked to carrying MSG sister channel Fuse, which it called a “low-rated music video channel.” Dish, controlled by billionaire Charlie Ergen, called Fox’s rate hike demand “unprecedented” and said it was driven by what Fox has paid for the right to exclusive TV coverage of sports in local markets. Their multiyear deal expired at midnight Thursday. The dispute means that a portion of Dish’s more than 14.3 million subscribers will be unable to watch early season hockey games while the fight continues. New York-area Dish subscribers of MSG and MSG Plus could also miss out on live hockey games of the Rangers, Islanders, Devils and Sabres starting next week.

Heigl: I don’t believe my own press Former “Grey’s Anatomy” star Katherine Heigl said she’s happy to make headlines, but stories about her in the media are often exaggerated. Heigl’s comments in the past have been known to make waves in the entertainment world. She called the 2007 comedy “Knocked Up,” in which she starred, “a little sexist.” Later, she refused to seek an Emmy nomination after saying “Grey’s” writers didn’t give her enough Katherine Heigl award-worthy material. Heigl said she doesn’t have “any major problem” with what’s written about her. But she adds that she tries to keep her perspective so she doesn’t believe her own press. The actress was speaking in New York at the world premiere of her latest dramedy, “Life as We Know It,” which opens nationwide next week.

Razor wire nearly strips inmate A Phoenix jail inmate was left wearing nothing but pink socks after scaling five fences in an escape attempt before he was captured. The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office said 24-year-old Clayton Thornburg suffered cuts on parts of his body since some of the Durango Jail’s fences are 15 feet high and topped with razor wire. Jail officials said the razor wire had stripped away Thornburg’s jail uniform and pink underwear by the time he reached the last fence Thursday morning. He was treated at the Maricopa County Medical Center. Authorities said Thornburg likely will face an additional felony charge of escape, which can add up to five years to an inmate’s sentence. They say Thornburg was in jail for an extensive number of property crime charges.

Prolific TV producer Cannell dies at 69 By The Associated Press Stephen J. Cannell, the voracious writer-producer of dozens of series that included TV favorites “The Rockford Files,” “The A-Team” and “The Commish,” has died at age 69. Cannell died at his home in Pasadena, Calif., on Thursday night from complications associated with melanoma, his family said in a statement Friday. During three decades as an independent producer, he distinguished himself as a rangy, outgoing chap with a trim beard who was generally identified with action dramas full of squealing tires and tough guys trading punches. But his range was greater than for which he was given credit. “Tenspeed and Brown Shoe” was a clever detec-

tive drama starring Ben Vereen and a thenunknown Jeff Goldblum in 1980. “Profit” was a shocking saga of a Stephen psycho busiJ. Cannell nessman that was unforgettable to the few viewers who saw it: Fox pulled the plug after just four episodes in 1996. With “Wiseguy” (198790), Cannell chilled viewers with a film-noir descent into the underworld that predated “The Sopranos” by more than a decade. “The Rockford Files,” of course, became an Emmy-winning TV classic following the misadventures of its hapless ex-con private eye played by James Garner.

“People say, ‘How can the guy who did “Wiseguy” do “The A-Team”?’ I don’t know,” said Cannell in an interview with The Associated Press in 1993. “But I do know it’s easier to think of me simply as the guy who wrote ‘The A-Team.’ So they do.” During his TV heyday, Cannell became familiar to viewers from the ID that followed each of his shows: He was seen in his office typing on his Selectric before blithely ripping a sheet of paper from the typewriter carriage, whereupon it morphed into the C-shaped logo of Cannell Entertainment Inc. That was all the idea of his wife, Marcia, he said, and it “appealed to my sense of hooey. ... I’m a ham.” He was also an occasional actor, most recently with a recurring role on ABC-TV’s

series, “Castle.” A third-generation Californian, Cannell got into television writing scripts for “It Takes a Thief,” “Ironside” and “Adam 12.” It was a remarkable career choice for someone who had suffered since childhood from severe dyslexia (he became an advocate for children and adults with learning disabilities). Cannell in recent years had focused his attention on writing books. His 16th novel, “The Prostitute’s Ball,” will be released this month. “I never thought of myself as being a brilliant writer, and still don’t,” he said in the AP interview. “I’m a populist. With ‘Rockford,’ we were never trying to be important. And as thoroughly hated as it was by critics, I loved ‘The A-Team.’ I thought it was really cool.”

‘Childrens Hospital’ twists the medical drama

Comedy Central planning 3rd season for comedy series By Christy Lemire AP entertainment writer LOS ANGELES — Sexy young doctors fall in and out of love with each other — when they’re not busy saving lives in the most impossible, dramatic ways. But we’re not talking about “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Private Practice” or “House.” This is “Childrens Hospital,” the best medical drama on television — and the funniest. The series, which comes from the twisted mind of Rob Corddry and airs on Cartoon Network’s late-night Adult Swim lineup, is a fast-paced, deadly serious parody of a genre that can be formulaic, melodramatic and — for millions of viewers — addictive. Patients and doctors alike die and come back to life. They smoke indoors and engage in random make-out sessions in the hallways. Sometimes they even operate on themselves. Corddry, the show’s creator, also stars as the clueless Dr. Blake Downs, who wears clown makeup and treats patients with the healing power of laughter (shades of Patch Adams). Among the talented ensemble cast are Ken Marino, Lake Bell, Malin Akerman, Erinn Hayes and Rob Huebel, with TV comedy veterans Henry Winkler and Megan Mullally respectively playing the hospital administrator and chief of staff. The show began life in 2008

On TV “Children’s Hospital” is on Cartoon Network Sundays at 11 p.m. as a series of five-minute webisodes on A year later, it won a Webby Award for best comedy series. Now on Adult Swim, it’s in its second season, which runs until November, and the network said it is planning a third season, which is scheduled to start showing in the second quarter of 2011. “Childrens Hospital” is on Sundays at midnight but draws about 1.3

million viewers each week. Corddry, the former “Daily Show” correspondent, got the idea for it when he and his wife had to take their daughter to Childrens Hospital Los Angeles with an injury. “It was just a horrible place — so obviously the worst place for beautiful doctors to have sex with each other,” he said. This was during the writers strike that shut down production for 100 days, when several series were being developed exclusively for the web. Some programs, such as “quarterlife,” made the transition to television with

little success. But Corddry never envisioned doing that with “Childrens Hospital” because “I just didn’t think this kind of humor could sustain itself for 22 minutes.” But Mike Lazzo, Adult Swim’s senior vice president of programming and production, had heard about the show and was intrigued. “I was obsessed with ‘St. Elsewhere’ in my 20s. I just checked it out and was astonished that it was not sweeping the world,” Lazzo said. “What I loved most about it is, you could tell they love television, they love poking fun at television.”

Soundgarden releases album through ‘Guitar Hero’ By Nekesa Mumbi Moody AP music writer NEW YORK — After a 13-year break, Soundgarden is releasing its new album through the “Guitar Hero” video game series — and its frontman believes it’s the perfect way to reintroduce the band to a new generation. “In the obvious way, it’s going to reach a certain amount of younger people that either may or may not know about Soundgarden,” frontman Chris Cornell said in a recent interview. “No matter what, I feel like releasing it this way is going to reach a lot of people who have not heard our music or have not heard a lot of it.” “Telephantasm” is a retrospective CD that features some of the grunge band’s biggest hits from its 1990s heyday, as well as unreleased cuts. It was released this week as part of “Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock.” It’s being touted as the first time a new album has been released in conjunction with a video game; it’s already been

the game and what it is. I think the musical arrangements lend itself so well to what the video game is,” the 46-year-old singer said.

Maintaining friendship just prolongs pain for ex-girlfriend Dear Abby: My boyfriend, “Jake,” dumped me two years ago. Since then, we have tried to remain friends. He texts or calls to check up on me, tells me he misses me, calls me pet names and recites lines from my favorite movies. Although I appreciate Jake’s efforts to stay friends, I’m confused because he was the one who broke off our relationship. He has said in the past that letting me go is something he will always regret, but he hasn’t made an attempt to get back together. Abby, I feel that Jake is



stringing me along. I enjoy our friendship, but in my heart I’ll always want more. I can’t shake the feeling that he still loves me. At what point should I just give up and let go? — Left Hanging in Houston Dear Left Hanging: How about right now? But before


BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION If tomorrow is your birthday: Your life is likely to be greatly improved upon in the next year, due to some kind of new involvement of yours. Whatever it is will not only affect your finances and career, but your kinfolk as well. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — The financial wherewithal required to get something you greatly desire will be there for you, if you’ll take advantage of it. Focus on whatever it takes to get what you want for yourself. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — You rarely fit comfortably in a subservient role, and today will be no different. When a clever manipulator tries to jockey you into this position, you’ll stand up for your rights. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Because you’re a rather selfassured individual who has good reason to assume others like you, you won’t hesitate to approach someone you admire who appeals to you. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Your popularity among your peer group is trending upward. This will be verified by all the positive comments being made by those within your circle of friends. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Something that offers you the greatest challenge and can appear to be extremely difficult to achieve is likely to be the very thing that will surprisingly be the easiest for you to knock down today. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — There is usually a big payoff for being observant, as now is likely to prove. By studying the modus operandi of another, you can learn something big that can be applied to your own circumstances. Aries (March 21-April 19) — When it comes to any action you have, whether it is social or business in nature, you’re likely to feel more comfortable having a partner than going it alone. Find that perfect person to do things with. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Harmony of purpose will prevail, because you’ll make it so. You’re smart enough to realize that when two minds are in agreement, desirable results always come to pass. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Treat all your tasks as labors of love and you’ll find that your productivity will be greatly improved. When you like what you’re doing, negativity doesn’t interfere. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Take care, because playful flirtation is likely to be taken seriously, so unless you mean business, don’t amuse yourself with any games of this nature. It could lead to trouble. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Doing for those you love will bring you the greatest personal satisfaction, especially if it is something the person wants but cannot do for him/herself. It’ll make for a very pleasant day. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Don’t hold back the loving feelings you have for someone, and that includes a member of your own family. Chances are this person is eager to know what s/he means to you.

TWEEN 12 & 20

BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: Recently, my girlfriend broke up with me because she said she needed her space. She thought I was “smothering” her. I love this girl very much and breaking up was hard on me. We are both in the 12th grade. Last week, I sent her a text telling her how I felt. And in it, I used death as an analogy for the pain I have. Well, she took it as a suicide note. I have no thought of doing such a thing. She texted back, saying she was sorry I was hurting and she prayed I wouldn’t commit suicide. She added that she no longer wanted to communicate with me by talking or texting. What should I do? I really love this girl and I want her back. Do you think she ever will come back? — Randy, Alameda, Calif. Randy: I doubt it. In fact, I would say there is absolute certainty that she won’t come back as long as you hold such intense feelings about her. That’s why she felt smothered in the first place. Let her go and get on with your life. Get involved. Join school clubs and activities that interest you. You might even want to consider volunteering to help others somewhere. The worst thing you can do is wonder what she is doing. You must come to realize that she is not thinking of you. Dr. Wallace: Theresa goes to my church. She is very pretty and all the guys my age (including me) are always staring at her. Last Sunday, she came up to me and asked if I would like to escort her to a formal dance sponsored by her mom’s club. I couldn’t believe my ears. I told her yes and then she gave me her telephone number. She told me to call her and she’d give me all the details. I was on cloud nine when I called her last night. She told me what to wear and that her father would drive us to and from the dance. Then I asked a dumb question — why she asked me to be her escort. After a long pause, she said because her mother (my Sunday school teacher) told her to ask me. After I hung up the telephone, I felt deflated and sort of nerdy. Who wants to go to a dance with a girl who was forced to ask you? I’m 14 and not very experienced with girls. What should I do — swallow my pride and escort her, or call her back and cancel the date? Please hurry. — Ethan, Kissimmee, Fla. Ethan: Don’t tempt fate! You have the opportunity to go to a dance with a beautiful young lady — take it! Her reason for asking you matters far less than how well the two of you get along when you go out. Plan to have a wonderful time and be a perfect escort. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service. E-mail him at rwallace@Copley News Service.

you do, tell Jake that this “friendship” has prolonged the pain of your breakup, that what you feel for him isn’t platonic — and you will always want more. If he does still love you, it will be his opening to declare himself. However, if he doesn’t, then for your sake, cut the cord, because you won’t be free to find someone else until you do. Dear Abby: After my wife’s funeral, many of our friends returned to the mortuary to collect the flowers they had sent. Some of them were very

rude, insisting that because they had sent them, the flowers belonged to them. This has upset our daughter, who was in charge of sending thank-you notes. Now she doesn’t know who sent what because we were too distracted to look at the cards on the flowers. Is this something new, or are those people just rude? — Widower in Livingston, Mont. Dear Widower: When flowers have been sent — whether for a birthday or for an occasion like a funeral — they are no longer the property of the

sender. They belong to whomever they were sent. What your “many friends” did was insensitive and rude. As to what your daughter should say in her thank-you notes, I suggest a short message to those who signed the memorial book at the funeral service: “Our family thanks you for attending Mother’s

funeral, and for your compassion during this sad time. Your thoughtfulness is deeply appreciated.”

Excess weight not always cause of type 2 diabetes Dear Dr. Gott: Can you please discuss lifestyle risks for diabetes other than weight? I have three friends who are thin and have all developed type 2 diabetes. Although they are not overweight, they have terrible eating habits. I went to the supermarket with one of them and watched as she loaded her cart with pancake mix, syrup, diet soda and several boxes of processed frozen dinners that were advertised as healthy but contained huge amounts of sodium. Her concession to the fact that she has diabetes was buying light syrup and some bananas. She did not have a single vegetable other than what was included in her frozen meals. She also leads a sedentary life. She is constantly complaining about her “bad genes.” When I suggested that her diabetes might be due to her eating and exercise habits, she explained that she is not obese and therefore did not cause herself to become diabetic. I don’t know what her doctor has told her regarding lifestyle, but in general it does seem to me that type 2 diabetes is looked upon as your fault if you are heavy but beyond your control and the result of “bad genes” if you are thin. I think this is a dangerous mentality and also quite untrue. Dear Reader: Absolutely. Type 2 is the most common form of diabetes. It is commonly associated with being overweight, but this does not mean that simply being overweight will cause you to develop diabetes. Rather, excess weight is simply a risk factor. Type 2 diabetes is caused when cells become resistant to insulin and the pancreas is unable to make enough insulin to overcome the resistance. When this occurs, the cells no longer take in sugar, causing it to build up in the bloodstream. The exact reason why this happens is unknown. Complications can arise from untreated or poorly managed diabetes. Short-term complications need to be addressed immediately because, if left untreated, they can lead to seizures and/or coma. Short-term issues include hyperglycemia (high blood sugar), hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) and increased ketones (potentially toxic acids) in the urine. Long-term complications develop gradually. If the diabetes is left untreated or poorly treated, these can become permanent or life-threatening. Long-term issues include cardiovascular disease, bone and joint problems, skin and mouth conditions, and nerve, eye or kidney damage. Type 2 diabetes is often preventable if proper steps are taken to manage risk factors. It is important to maintain a healthful diet and exercise routine. Remember to include plenty of fruits, vegetables and whole grains while reducing your intake of animal products and sweets. Simply substituting sugar-free products for normally sugar-laden treats is not helpful. Any excessive intake of simple or complex sugars (carbohydrates) can result in high blood-sugar levels. A registered dietician is an excellent resource in developing a meal plan.



In those who develop the condition regardless of lifestyle changes, treatment is available. These include medication to stimulate the pancreas to produce more insulin, inhibit the production and release of glucose causing cells to need less insulin to transport sugar, block the action of enzymes that break down carbohydrates, or make tissues more sensitive to insulin and insulin injections. As you can see, simply being overweight isn’t enough to cause diabetes. While your friends may be thin, they likely have risk factors for developing diabetes and have, thus far, failed to make the necessary changes. They are accountable for their health, and blaming “bad genes” is just an excuse.

Neil Young, left, and Daniel Lanois

Neil Young, Lanois work together on ‘Le Noise’ By Chris Talbott AP entertainment writer NASHVILLE — Some of your louder rock ’n’ roll bands can make the Ryman Auditorium floorboards rattle a little. Few, though, have shaken the pews like Neil Young with just his electric guitar. Young has been known to make a racket with a distinctive guitar sound that has influenced two generations of musicians. The low rumble he sent through the foundation at the Ryman in June, employing the technology he used on his new Daniel Lanois-produced album, “Le Noise,” was something very different, however. In the audience, the air seemed to vibrate — as well as the listener’s ribcage. “Even though it was shaking the building it wasn’t loud enough to hurt you,” Young said recently in a phone interview from California. It was that sound that drew Young to Lanois, whose all-star collaboration list includes U2, Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan and Peter Gabriel. Lanois has given over his Los Angeles mansion to the pursuit of new sounds: Many of the rooms are crammed with gear, set up to make something unique and new. Young was immediately intrigued when he plugged into the elaborate system built by Lanois and engineer Mark Howard. “The house is alive,” Young said. “The music was all through the house.” What emerged from those recording sessions is new, even for the everrestless Young. “Le Noise” is full of interesting sounds and experiments, on both acoustic and electric guitars. In a sense, it’s Young as he first emerged as a performer — alone with his guitar singing about things completely personal and wholly universal. But 45 years worth of technological advances make it a very different experience. Lanois’ setup allows Young to inhabit all the spaces that a band would — high guitar notes, low bass notes, the rhythm, the melody — simultaneously. “We might’ve just reinvented rock ’n’ roll to a degree, to have it just being one person and for the record to have all that power; it’s something, man,” Lanois said. “It’s the opposite to where other people are going. Most rock records now are just piling more stuff See Young, Page D3.

GardenMama full of practical advice for Southerners “Questions and Answers for Deep South Gardeners” by Nellie Neal is full of useful information and real questions Neal says she has gathered from her 15-plus years of doing a weekly radio program and writing and speaking with gardening groups across the Deep South. A double major in English and horticulture from Louisiana State University prepared her well for a career as Mississippi’s premier GardenMama, a title she wears proudly. In the book’s forward, Neal says her approach to gardening is simple — start with the dirt and stay with the program. Amend native soil



as needed to create good growing conditions, then make smart plant and site choices, water and fertilize as required and practice pest and disease prevention whenever possible. In “Questions and Answers,” Neal breaks the year into quarters and provides an introduction to the season and lists cul-

tural practices the gardener should address at that time of year. She also offers tidbits she has learned from her own growing experiences, words and definitions, and a series of gardeners’ questions. Novice to well-seasoned gardeners will like the lists scattered throughout, including: Perennials for Shady Gardens, Perennial Herbs for Fall Planting, Easiest Perennials to Grow and Unbeatable narcissi and daffodils.

Study: Kids with ADHD more likely to have missing DNA LONDON (AP) — Children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder are twice as likely to have missing or extra chromosomes than other children — the first evidence that the disorder is genetic, a new study says. British researchers compared the genomes of 366 white British children from 5 to 17 years old with attention deficit hyperactivity, or ADHD, to those of more than 1,000 similar children without the disorder. The scientists focused on a sequence of genes linked to brain development that has previously been connected to conditions like autism and schizophrenia. In children without ADHD, about 7 percent of them had deleted or doubled chromosomes in the analyzed gene sequence. But among children with the disorder, researchers discovered about 14 percent had such genetic alterations. Scientists also found that 36 percent of children with learning disabilities in the study had the chromosomal abnormalities. “This is the first time we’ve found that children with ADHD have chunks of DNA that are either duplicated or missing,” said Anita Thapar, a professor at the MRC Centre in Neuropsychiatric Genetics and Genomics at Cardiff University who was one of the study’s authors. She said the findings are too early to affect diagnosis or treatment and are only applicable to people of European Caucasian descent because

In children without ADHD, about 7 percent of them had deleted or doubled chromosomes in the analyzed gene sequence. But among children with the disorder, researchers discovered about 14 percent had such genetic alterations.

studies have not been done yet on other ethnicities. The condition is estimated to affect millions of children around the world, and scientists have long thought the disorder has a genetic component. U.S. experts estimate that ADHD affects from 3 percent to 5 percent of schoolage children in the United States. There are no figures for developing nations. The study was paid for by Action Research, Baily Thomas Charitable Trust, the Wellcome Trust, Britain’s Medical Research Council and the European Union. It was published online Wednesday in the medical journal Lancet. Peter Burbach, a professor of molecular neuroscience at University Medical Center Utrecht in the Netherlands, was surprised

some of the genetic defects found for ADHD were identical to ones for autism and schizophrenia. He was not connected to the Lancet research.

Neal has it covered in her Pruning All Year section. Winter pruning usually stifles growth, she says, while spring and summer pruning stimulate it. She warns against pruning within six weeks of the first expected frost, which generally occurs here around the middle of November. Neal lives in Jackson and has gardened in the South all her life.

Do your feet ever get sweaty? And stinky? Bacteria are the reason. They eat the dead skin cells on your feet. After eating the dead skin cells on your feet, the bacteria have to get rid of their waste. It’s the bacteria’s waste that smells bad. Yuck!

1. When you take a step, your weight falls first on your heel.

When these bacteria are in dark, damp places, like the insides of shoes, they start to multiply, eat more, and stink more! Socks help to keep feet a bit drier and can help keep the stink down.

2. Then your weight moves to the outside edge of your foot. 3. Then it moves to the ball of the foot. 4. Finally your weight moves to the big toe, which gives you a push forward.

Feet are full of action. In fact there are many verbs that describe what people can do with feet. Match these verbs with a picture showing that action. What other verbs can you think of that feet can do?

Continued from Page D1. points out, “It’s an angry world for the businessman and the fisherman,” perhaps shining a light on the fight over the oil spill. “Peaceful Valley Boulevard” is cast in the mold of classics like “Aurora Borealis” and “Cortez The Killer,” showing how mistakes made centuries ago grow and magnify over time until God cried tears that were a “pounding rain” and “a child was born and wondered why.” And then there’s the brittle and beautiful “Love and War,” on which Young lays down this shocking statement: “When I sing about love and war/I don’t really know what I’m saying.” Isn’t that a profoundly confusing statement from the artist who gave us “Ohio” and “Impeach the President”? Young chuckles before answering. “It’s such a deep subject and there’s really no one answer,” he said. “There’s nobody who really knows. It just seems to be a part of the human condition to get in wars over and over again for as long as human beings have been around. So I have opinions but I’m not so sure that they’re right.”

Two of the 64-yearold’s three most recent albums of new material have carried heavy messages about things like electric cars and energy consumption (“Fork in the Road”) and the Bush administration (“Living With War”). Young acknowledges “Le Noise” is much more personal than those albums, but he’s not going to label it. “I think it’s a — I don’t know — a spiritual record in some kind of ways,” Young said. “There’s a lot to do with love on the record. Love is in almost every song, and so it had a spiritual layer to it. It’s not trying to do anything. It’s just trying to be itself.” And on a handful of songs — “Walk With Me,” “Sign of Love” and “The Hitchhiker” — that description sounds about right. Other times, it feels like Young is as contrarian and relevant as ever. On “Angry World,” with its looped vocals working like the background noise that fills our lives these days, Young

He also thought scientists might eventually be able to reverse ADHD. “This is not a structural abnormality in the brain, it’s just the last phase of development that’s gone wrong,” he said. “It could be the brain just needs to be fine-tuned.” Philip Asherson, a professor of molecular psychiatry at the Institute of Psychiatry at King’s College London, said the study only dealt with a subset of people with ADHD and said the environment should still be considered a cause.
