About 250 register to vote here on Nov. 8


De erioration

By Pamela Hitchins and Danny Barrett Jr.

Voter registration for the Nov. 8 general election ended at noon Saturday with Warren County rolls swelling by about 250 since the August primary, Circuit Clerk Shelly Ashley-Palmertree said. Ashley-Palmertree’s office was open from 8 until noon Saturday to accept last-minute registrations, and she said about a dozen voters came in during those hours, adding to perhaps 50 or more who registered Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. “We were slammed with registrations this week, and we’ll have some come in the mail Monday,” Ashley-Palmertree said. The exact number of registered voters will not be available for several See Vote, Page A9. SAM ANDREWS•The Vicksburg Post

Catholic Church seeking help for restoration By Pamela Hitchins

PORT GIBSON — The windows in the old Catholic church here cast a cobalt blue light on the pews and hand-carved altar, but it’s green that’s on the minds of parishioners of St. Josephs. The church, built in 1849, needs a restoration expected to cost $170,000. The congregation has tried for more than a decade to remedy structural problems by making piecemeal repairs, but a permanent fix is going to require more than small change. “We’ve been fighting it for years and years and years,” said Shirley McFatter Daigle, a longtime church member involved in the current fundraising campaign. “We’ve been trying to patch it up... but none of it worked for very long, and then we’d be back to another leak again. We asked the diocese for help, and they said no, we needed to do a total restoration or we’d just constantly be facing this.” St. Joseph’s bell tower leaks and paint on interior walls is

The Rev. Faustin Misakao says Mass Wednesday in the parish hall.

Church Continued from Page A1. Society contributed $10,000, and said if the church could raise about $33,000 more, the Society would triple it — meaning an additional $99,000 — to bring in the full $170,000. So far, the parish has about $18,300, Daigle said. For the work, the diocese referred parishioners to The Durable Restoration Company, an awardwinning national firm with main offices in Columbus, Ohio. The company’s credits include many church, museum and institutional buildings including the Cathedral of St. Peter the Apostle in Jackson and St. James Episcopal Church in Baton Rouge. McLemore said his stopgap repairs have included restoring doors after they were improperly painted and installing a rubber roof membrane inside the bell tower. The tower’s needs, however, include complete external scraping and prep work, priming, caulking and painting. Repairs to the base of the steeple, 117 feet above the sidewalk, also are needed, McLemore said. The roof — replaced about 20 years ago at the cost of the building’s original parapet walls — needs gutters and diverters to channel water away from the building’s masonry and

mortar, which wick moisture up into the walls, damaging interior surfaces, he said. The oldest church building in the city, St. Joseph Catholic Church is popular with tourists, and the head of the Chamber of Commerce has a key — “so if there is a bus tour, she can let people in,” Daigle said. The carved Stations of the Cross and cross-topped blue windows aren’t original to the building but contribute to its appeal. “That is what impressed me the first time I came here,” said the Rev. Faustin Misakao, of the order of the Norbertines, who has been pastor of St. Josephs since 2007. “You see things differently. You feel a change.” Misakao, 61, a native of Congo, said he has been a priest for 31 years in Africa, France and the United States and loves being in the small Port Gibson congregation, which is as close as “a family.” The parish, originally known as Bowie’s Parish, was recognized by the Diocese of Natchez in 1849. The prime mover in getting the church built was Elvie Bowie Moore, the daughter of Resin and Margaret Bowie and niece of Jim Bowie, who developed the large knife named for him.

Elvie Moore wanted a church where landowners as well as the slaves on the Moore’s plantations, Fairview and Woodlawn, could worship, and began raising money. Church lore has it that Elvie’s husband finally told her he would build her a church if she’d just stop asking their friends for money, Daigle said.

St. Josephs is an example of 19th Century Gothic Revival style. Daniel Foley, the 16-yearold son of the architect, Michael Foley of St. Louis, carved from solid walnut the Communion rail and its seven panels. The youth also is known in Port Gibson for carving the original hand atop the Presbyterian Church.

St. Joseph’s parish has until Aug. 15 to qualify for matching funds. All of the $33,000 must be raised; none can be taken out of the parish’s savings, the diocese said. “We are trying to get it all raised before the winter rains set in,” said Daigle. “The longer we have to wait, it’s just going to get worse.”

Perry open to changes in Social Security

The associated press

Ron Paul in Washington Saturday

Ron Paul wins straw poll WASHINGTON (AP) — Rep. Ron Paul of Texas is the top presidential pick of the thousands of social conservatives who are meeting this weekend, winning 37 percent in a non-binding straw poll. Georgia businessman Herman Cain came in second at the Values Voters Summit in Washington with 23 percent and former Sen. Rick Santorum placed third with 16 percent in Saturday’s straw poll among the Republicans’ White House

contenders. Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota and Gov. Rick Perry of Texas tied with 8 percent. Paul, making his second run at the GOP nomination, regularly fares well in such straw polls because his fervent supporters flock to the events to give him wins. Yet Paul trails other better known candidates such as Perry and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney in traditional polls.

Romney: Blast at faiths ‘poisonous language’ WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney on Saturday denounced “poisonous language” against faiths as he grappled with a flare-up over religion sparked by a prominent supporter of Texas Gov. Rick Perry, his rival. Perry steered well clear of that simmering issue. Romney, in remarks to the Values Voters Summit, a gathering of cultural conservatives in Washington, did not directly confront the words of a prominent Perry supporter who called Romney’s Mormon faith a “cult.” Indeed, Romney was criticizing another speaker at the meeting who is known for anti-Mormon and anti-Muslim rhetoric, and who followed him on stage.

But his words served as notice that attacks on faiths should, in his view, be off the table. He appealed for support of the presidential candidate who has the best record on the economy. Until now, Romney’s Mormon faith and Perry’s evangelical Christianity were secondary to a GOP primary focused on who can best fix the country’s economy. Questions about his faith plagued Romney’s 2008 presidential run, but he had been able to keep them at bay so far this time. That changed when a pastor who introduced Perry to cultural conservatives called Mormonism a “cult” and said Romney is “not a Christian,” forcing Perry to distance himself and Romney to respond.

SPENCER CITY, Iowa (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry stepped more deeply into the tricky issue of Social Security on Saturday, saying he is open to raising the age for receiving benefits and limiting them for upper-income people. The Texas governor told an Iowa audience that “it makes sense” to increase the eligibility age because Americans are living longer. The age for full benefits is now 65 to 67, depending on a person’s date of birth. He also said it may be time to limit payments for higherincome people, a process known as means-testing. “I’ don’t have a problem with that concept,” Perry said in Sioux City, Iowa. And he raised the possibility of creating “private accounts” for Americans who want to opt out of the Social Security program, a notion that Democrats typically have strongly opposed. All Social Security tax collections now go toward benefits for current retirees or other government programs. Private accounts would require tax payments to somehow be invested, presumably along lines chosen by

the payer. The governor offered no details, but said any changes to the program would not apply to people now on Social Security or within a few years of eligibility. Perry previously has said a higher eligibility age and means-testing should be considered. But he seemed more supportive of these ideas Saturday when responding to questions in Sioux City and Spencer. Perry pointed to projections that Social Security cannot fully pay benefits in future years unless its funding is increased. He has likened the system to a “Ponzi scheme,” saying younger Americans should be made aware that their payroll tax payments are not set aside but are distributed to current retirees. In his book, “Fed Up,” Perry suggested Social Security was unconstitutional. Democrats and many Republicans have criticized Perry’s remarks on Social Security. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, another top competitor for the GOP nomination, has said Perry’s comments may render him unelectable.

So the white majority in Neshoba County was racist on rejecting a black Democrat president, but not racist on electing a black Democrat mayor?

Mississippi’s racial politics distorted again by lazy reporting OUR OPINION

Drugs and fraud A growing national scourge

Nearly 30 years ago, then-first lady Nancy Reagan launched her “Say No To Drugs” campaign. The federal government declared a war on illegal drugs. Has it worked? Or are we still facing a scourge on society that tears apart families and communities? In the 1990s, cocaine and crack dominated the drug landscape. Through the first decade of this century, crystal methamphetamine reared its ugly head. Now, the fight against illegal drugs is facing an epidemic with prescription drug abuse. A federal report released Monday showed abuse in the Medicare system to the tune of $148 million in prescription frauds. The most common of these coveted pills are oxycodone, Vicodin and Lorcet. In one case in Georgia, the federal report showed a Medicare recipient received 3,655 oxycontin pills — more than a four-year supply — from 58 different prescribers. The problem is not isolated to certain states. It hits communities, including our own. On Sept. 29, a Tallulah physician and his live-in girlfriend in Vicksburg were charged with 300 counts each of prescription fraud. Authori-

ties believe the couple obtained nearly 14,000 pills and tablets through fraudulent prescription drug activity. The two are out of jail on $100,000 bonds and their guilt or innocence will be decided in a courtroom. But if what police are saying is true, 14,000 pills is a bit much for personal use. For each person taken off the streets, though, someone will fill in the void. As long as demand is high — and demand for these pills is very high — and money can be made, nefarious people will find a way to “work” the system to their advantage. Diagnosing the problem is fairly simple. Crafting a solution is far from it. This past week, Nobel prizes were awarded to scientists, to physicists, to physicians. Brilliant minds exist in this world. And it will take a brilliant mind to stop the national scourge of prescription drug abuse. The tightrope between people wary of over-government interference and those who would do anything to stop this problem will have to be walked. When crystal meth was a growing problem in Mississippi, the Legislature in 2010 passed a law regulating the sale

of pseudoephedrine, the key ingredient in the drug. Meth lab seizures since the law passed have dropped by about 70 percent, a Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics report showed. But stop the crystal meth production, and dealers will move onto other drugs. The key will be to devise a system, maybe a fingerprint analysis, connected to a national database that regulates every time someone tries to obtain narcotics. There are many positive, legal uses for these drugs and there might be inconvenience to lawabiding citizens. But what is the alternative? Massive Medicare — think taxpayer — fraud? More addictions to horribly addictive drugs? More front page stories about area doctors? It’s great to honor the scientist who discovered quasicrystals — the theory that atoms in a crystal could be packed in a pattern that could not be repeated — but it does not help a serious problem facing us right now. Brilliant minds with focus and determination are the answers to America’s most current scourge.

Local war hero receives overdue recognition Wading ashore under relentless fire from entrenched German positions overlooking the beaches at Normandy, Vicksburg’s Jack Hearn completed his mission. As a member of the 81st Chemical Batallion, Hearn moved mortars and equipment across the beaches. Hearn eventually made it to Paris and the German defensive positions. He survived it all, and on Sept. 29, 2011, he received an honor long overdue. The Legion of Honor medal is the most prestigious award presented by France. Since 1802, the medal has recognized people for personal merit and service to the French Republic. Hearn was joined by James Williams and the widow of Louis K. Brown in receiving honors at the University of Southern Mississippi.

Pride is so associated with veterans of past wars, but most especially World War II. There is an elevated sense of awe and sacrifice for those fighting men. The numbers of living World War II veterans is decreasing daily. Consider an American boy, 18 years old who entered the war in 1945 — the year of Allied victory. He would be in his mid-80s today. People just like him are dying every day. The time to honor their living memories is fleeting. Hearn, 90, stormed the beaches at Normandy more than 67 years ago. The time elapsed has made it even more special. “This has been a long time coming,” said Pam Antoine, Hearn’s granddaughter. “People don’t remember or think about things like this anymore.

It’s something you see on the movies. This wasn’t a movie for him.” Recipients of the award are named by the French president. Hearn, an active member of the Military Order of the Purple Heart, was told of his honor about a month ago. It was presented to him by Keltoum Rowland, Honorary Consul of France in Hattiesburg. Veterans from all foreign wars deserve recognition. Yet, in some cases, the actions, bravery and valor stand out so much that special recognition is needed. Jack Hearn earned that medal from France. He certainly deserves a thank-you and congratulations from those at home. So, Mr. Hearn, we thank you and honor you.

Ceres is a great home for chain-maker It is heartening to see activity at the Ceres Research and Industrial Interplex off Interstate 20 in Flowers. The announcement Sunday that a chainmaker plans to move to the industrial park is welcome news in an otherwise down economy. Laclede Chain Manufacturing Company LLC of Missouri will move into the former Yorozu Automotive Mississippi facility, which has been shuttered since Yorozu left in 2008. The chain-maker is expected to employ 42 people at Ceres and will manufacture chains for car, truck and bus tires, as well as accessories such as rope clips and grab hooks.

It also will mark the first major industry to move into the Ceres site since Yorozu left. Company CEO Jim Riley said the move was not prompted by tax breaks or financial incentives, but the facility’s location. The Ceres plantation site has direct access to the main east-west interstate thoroughfare between Dallas and Atlanta. The company already has a facility in Missouri and Washington state, but Riley said this addition will allow manufacturing closer to his customer base in the Southeast. Ceres has been considered by Warren County supervisors as the site of a new

county jail, though no physical movement on a jail has been completed. However, talks within the city and county are ongoing. The future of Ceres is still in limbo. Having companies choose that site, without financial incentives from the taxpayers, shows the logistical advantages and expansion possibilities of Ceres. Positive financial news is rare as the country struggles with a housing crisis and high unemployment. The move to Ceres is positive, hopefully for all parties involved.

STARKVILLE — What an incredibly convenient story. New York Times reporter Campbell Robinson dropped into Mississippi to write about the current political anemia of the Democratic Party in the South with the 2011 governor’s race in this state as the backdrop. After what I’m sure was an exhaustive examination, Robinson concluded, as the headline on his story trumpeted: “For politics in the South, race divide is defining.” The gist of the story, like so many before it, is that the Republican “Southern Strategy” worked and that whites in the South won’t vote for Democrats because of race. In what I’m certain was a matter of sheer coincidence, the Times reporter went to my hometown of Philadelphia to follow Democratic nominee Johnny DuPree’s campaign. On the day in question, DuPree was speaking to the local Rotary Club. That coincidence laid the groundwork for the reporter to mention that the Ku Klux Klan murdered civil rights workers Andrew Goodman, Michael Schwerner and James Chaney in Neshoba County in 1964 and that Republican Ronald Reagan kicked off his successful 1980 campaign for president at the Neshoba County Fair. Citation of those events is an opportunity to illustrate what the Times through various writers has argued since 1980 — that Reagan’s speech at Neshoba represented some type of philosophical handoff of the baton of racism from the old racist Democrats of SID the 1960s to the new racist Republicans in 1980 and beyond. That argument fails on any number of levels. First and foremost is the size and scope of the Democratic Party’s political turf in Mississippi against a GOP that couldn’t elect a governor in Mississippi until 1991. Democrats control the Mississippi House, are within striking distance in the state Senate, and control the majority of municipal and county governments statewide. To his credit, the visiting reporter admitted that a 92 percent white majority in Alcorn County elected Eric Powell as their state senator in 2007, but found a source who said that wouldn’t survive the GOP’s political onslaught. By contrast, Republicans dominate the state’s congressional delegation and statewide offices. No arguments there, but that fact begs the question of why and once again the Times lays the blame or credit — depending on one’s political allegiance — for that fact at the feet of racism. So let me understand this: Mississippians will elect Democrats in local and county politics and in state legislative politics, but not at the highest levels. Racism in Mississippi apparently gets stronger when we get to the political level of agriculture commissioner than it does for mayor or sheriff or even state senator. A more rational assessment might be that in local, county, even state legislative politics, social issues aren’t part of the political debate. In Mississippi, for good or ill, there remains a rather wide chasm between Democratic Party philosophies on issues like gun rights, abortion, and the priorities for which the nation taxes and spends. In local politics, it’s character and competence. Party matters less. In choosing Philadelphia, Mississippi, as the backdrop for the story alleging that race is the great divide between Democrats and Republicans and whites and blacks, the Times reporter ignored one inconvenient truth — the fact that Philadelphia has an African-American Democrat mayor elected by a white majority that votes Republican in presidential elections. So the white majority in Neshoba County was racist on rejecting a black Democrat president, but not racist on electing a black Democrat mayor? And they are meant to be the examples of why the Democratic Party can’t win statewide in Mississippi and in the South? The logic of that conclusion by the nation’s newspaper of record eludes me — but it sticks to a consistent script. •

The Vicksburg Post

WEEK IN Vicksburg Autumn weather was in full effect in Vicksburg as temperatures ranged from the mid-70s to low 80s during the day, and the mid-40s and mid-50s during the overnight hours. The evening temperatures were in the mid-50s at weeks end. No rain was recorded. The Mississippi River on the local gauge saw rises and falls throughout the week, with the low level at 13.2 feet and a high level of 15.5 feet. Forecasters predicted a reading of 14.1 feet today. A portion of the Georgia Memorial at the Vicksburg National Military Park was damaged during the moving of the 18-foot-tall granite structure. The top section was sent to Georgia for repairs. Thousands of revelers packed downtown last weekend for the second annual Bricks and Spokes event, the 29th annual Old Court House Museum Flea Market and the 17th annual downtown fall festival. John P. Lee, 61, died on Sunday morning in a motorcycle accident on Eagle Lake Shore Road. State troopers said Lee lost control of his Kawasaki and struck an embankment. Jack Gillis showed off some of the models of a coal company and shotgun houses he built. Gillis is planning on donating the models to the Vicksburg Battlefield Museum, to one day be housed in the Vicksburg Transportation Museum. A West Monroe, La., woman died after she jumped from the Interstate 20 bridge into the Mississippi River. The body of Pamela Weems Mitchell, 45, was found about six miles south of the bridge near the Baxter Wilson Steam Electric Plant. Vicksburg High wide receiver A.J. Stamps and quarterback Cameron Cooksey were recognized after obliterating county high school football records in a loss to Northwest Rankin High School. Cooksey threw for a county-record 589 yards, and Stamps caught 19 passes for 285 yards and five touchdowns. The Vicksburg Warren School District will begin surveying sixth-graders on what their future career plans will be in an effort to determine the classes those students will take in the future. The Pathways to Success program is sponsored by the Mississippi Department of Education. Stanley Hearon, 55, of Vicksburg was arrested and charged in the city with armed robbery, possession of a Schedule II narcotic and kidnapping, and also faces false reporting and arson charges in the county. Hearon is accused of calling in a bomb threat to River Region Medical Center before robbing Battlefield Drug Store on Indiana Avenue. The death of a former Vicksburg resident living in Hattiesburg was ruled “likely accidental” after first being treated as a homicide. Lance Logan, 24, a St. Aloysius graduate, died from a single gunshot wound to the head on July 14. The repair and replacement of a bridge over railroad tracks at Washington and Clark streets, already more than three months behind initial completion dates, will not result in late penalty payments to the city. Kansas City Southern Railway, which is contracting out the replacement bridge, received another extension through February 2012 to complete the project. In addition to Lee, local deaths during the week were M.C. Dulaney, Melvin C. Tyler, Jerry Wayne Clark, Guy L. Tucker and Tola Aldy Lewis.


Passing Voter ID won’t thwart election cheats OXFORD — Word is that voter ID will pass on Nov. 8. Fine. No problem requiring people to show a picture of themselves before they vote. Calling it “intimidation” in 2011 is nonsense. But it’s worse nonsense to think that placing a voter ID requirement in the Mississippi Constitution will, of itself, add integrity and trustworthiness to the electoral process. It won’t. Cheaters will still cheat — until or unless enough of them are sent to prison for making a mockery of the one-person, one-vote precept that is foundational to self-rule. Put an ID requirement in the vaunted position of the state’s organic law, but remember that it’s the people in the trenches — local polling places — who choose whether to cheat. “Gimmick solutions” are everywhere in our culture. For example, there’s the notion that providing more money to education will, all by itself, make students more attentive. It won’t. The recipe for learning is a competent teacher and a motivated student. A lot of other factors can be helpful. Better pay is likely, on average, to attract more competent teachers. But the worst teacher in the world can’t keep an eager student from learning. And the best teacher in the world would be hard-pressed to entice a student who sees no point in gaining knowledge or skills. There’s also the gimmick that



On any given day, we hear politicians and regular folks, too, offer single-shot solutions. Some sound pretty good, but the best are patches and the worst are deceptive.

“taxing the rich” will provide a workable, long-term solution for America’s budget. It won’t. No amount of additional income will help as long as Congress spends more and more every year regardless of the cash flow situation. Term limits. Starting more than 20 years ago, states (not including Mississippi, where voters declined to jump on the bandwagon) decided that career politicians were the problem and capping their service was an ideal fix. So, many states now have term limits. And there’s no indication the limits have served any purpose other than to let a calendar on the wall replace the judgment of voters in deciding who should stay and who should go. On any given day, we hear politicians and regular folks, too, offer single-shot solutions. Some sound pretty good, but the best are patches and the worst are deceptive. Voter ID has for many years served as such a foil in Mississippi. The subtext is, “If only we had it,

government would improve, be more responsive.” While there are pockets where cheating is accepted, there is no widespread epidemic of fraudulent elections in Mississippi. Further, as Democratic gubernatorial nominee Johnny DuPree points out, the treachery that takes place is outside the realm of an ID requirement. Dupree, who has won three mayoral elections in Hattiesburg, correctly says the real areas of abuse are vote-buying and absentee ballots. To his credit, Republican gubernatorial nominee Phil Bryant hasn’t been heard to say adding a voter ID requirement in Mississippi, which he supports, is a cureall for election problems. The Mississippi officials on the front line of voter-related matters are the secretary of state and the attorney general. The state has been fortunate. Former Secretary of State Eric Clark and current Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann have had some success cleaning up local poll books and trying to set higher standards for local elections offi-

cials and elections reporting. Clark initiated the effort to compile a statewide voter list and end the madness of more than a dozen Mississippi counties with more registered voters than living residents. Failing to keep voter rolls up to date is an open invitation to the type of cheating most often seen — people voting absentee in the names of people who are dead or who moved away long ago. But policing is an ongoing process and requires the best efforts of local elections officials who work in obscurity. Most of these folks are exemplary of civic virtue. A smattering are snakes. To ferret them out, there has been an increasing number of prosecutions initiated by Hosemann and taken to court by Attorney General Jim Hood and local court officials who refuse to look the other way. In April, a woman named Lessadolla Sowers actually got a five-year prison sentence from Circuit Judge Charles Webster in Tunica County after being accused of voting 31 times. So pass voter ID, one of three proposed changes on the ballot. It won’t hurt anything. But remember that the integrity and trustworthiness of an election depends almost entirely on the standards a community sets for itself when it selects people to administer voting. The cheaters will look at voter ID as just one more law to ignore. •

Kansas City Southern should stick to railroading This letter was prompted by the letter from “The” Kansas City Southern Railway in Sunday’s newspaper by Doniele Carlson of the railroad’s community affairs office. Please contradict or correct any misstatements that may follow: • For many years, the railroad has frequently ignored or altered the per car fee payments submitted by Warren County for use of the Old U.S. 80 bridge over the Mississippi River. I have never heard an acceptable reason for this being allowed to continue. • It is my understanding that the contractor for the replacement of the Washington Street bridge is a subsidiary of the railroad — an interesting situation. • If the “difficult geological problem” has been “felt for years,” and was the reason for the closure of the bridge, one would assume this information would have been reflected in the cost and completion time of the contract. Both, however, seem to have been, and are being, missed by large margins. • The railroad states that they agreed to “manage this difficult project effectively at a fixed rate even though the primary beneficiary will be Vicksburg’s motorists.” When will the “effective management” begin? Completion of the bridge would surely benefit the people on the other end of the “utilities left hanging in the air” these past years. If you are, as you say, “making every effort to fix this difficult problem and complete it as quickly and responsibly as possible,” perhaps you should stick to railroading and give up bridge building.

Vote for Amendment 26 I urge fellow Mississippians to vote “for” Amendment 26, the Personhood Amendment, on Nov. 8. Its passage would expand legal protection to living human beings not yet born. I advocate this position because surgical and chemical abortion kills human beings and is abusive to pregnant mothers physically, emotionally and spiritually. In addition to my knowledge of basic biology/embryology and the historical Christian ethic of the sacredness of all human life, I speak as one who was adopted from an orphanage in 1943 after having been abandoned soon after birth. I speak, also, from the unique perspective of a veteran “sidewalk

I have dedicated about 10 hours per week for more than 25 years to this ministry. It has been an experience. I have been overjoyed at the thousands of times I have seen mothers let their unborn babies continue to live, often with the help and support of the pro-life community. However, I have shed many tears with mothers and their companions who chose death as a “solution” to their crisis pregnancies. What I have NOT seen is a mother gleefully exiting the center after undergoing an abortion appearing “emancipated.” We know the devastation that will follow. What is the purpose of government? The first purpose of civil government is to protect its innocent citizens, especially those in the dawn and dusk of life. Who is more innocent and helpless than today’s unborn babies? In order to give God a reason to hear our prayers and heal our land, the killing of the holy innocents must end! Mississippians, we are better than this. C. Roy McMillan Jackson

Vote NO on Amendment 26 As Nov. 8 draws near, I am growing increasingly concerned about the unintended medical, legal, and financial consequences of Mississippi Amendment 26. Also known as the “Personhood Amendment,” this change to the Mississippi State Constitution will allow for unprecedented government intrusion into the lives of Mississippi families. I am hopeful that Pro-Life Mississippians will fully examine Amend-

ment 26 and conclude that they can be both passionately pro-life and vehemently opposed to this broadsweeping and dangerous initiative. As Amendment 26 is written, the initiative would: • Limit access or outlaw many commonly used forms of birth control, including pills and IUDs. • Harm fertility research and access to fertility treatments. • Make criminalizing miscarriages an easier task, as 26 does not distinguish between spontaneous miscarriage and murder. • Criminalize life-saving measures for women suffering ectopic or tubal pregnancies. • Drive up the costs of Medicaid, Medicare, health insurance, medical malpractice insurance. • Violate patient-doctor confidentiality. • Allow the government — not doctor and patient — to make important, private health decisions. As residents of Mississippi, we are the keepers of liberty and our laws MUST reflect our belief in justice. Yes, Amendment 26 will ban abortion in Mississippi, but at too great a cost. Vote NO on 26 on Nov. 8 if you trust Mississippi women to make responsible health care choices. Betsy Chapman Oxford

Park looks fantastic Kudos to the groundskeepers and landscaping crew of our beautiful Vicksburg National Military Park. It looks even more stunning thanks to the hard work and care of the crews who worked through the heat and drought of the summer. Not only do I get to enjoy God’s beautiful creation, but man’s excellent stewardship of his creation. I am reminded of my favorite quote by Dr. Martin Luther King: Jr. “If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he must sweep streets as Michelangelo painted, as Beethoven composed and as Shakespeare wrote poetry. He must sweep streets so well that when he is gone, all the hosts of heaven will pause and say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper.’” Thank you for blessing our community with your example of paying homage to the past as well as your example of excellence to the present and future.

Don’t close post offices According to Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe, the Postal Ser-

vice will have to shut down entirely this winter unless Congress acts to cover the $9.2 billion deficit expected at the end of the year. How on earth did the Postal Service get in such a dire financial situation? Perhaps there are a number of reasons but the No. 1 reason is the fault of the Postal Service itself. For decades it has been making contractual agreements with its workers, including no layoff clauses, which steadily increased the post offices’ cost. Labor (wages) represent 80 percent of the postal agencies expenses compared with 53 percent at UPS and only 32 percent at FedEx. Obviously this is the one big reason the Postal Service is in such a mess — one of its own making. However, perhaps to mislead the American people, the Postal Service is trying to blame its problems on having too many post offices. Thus it proposes closing 3,653 small, rural post offices across America — as many as 65 of which will be in Mississippi. The total savings, according to the Postal Services figures, would be a miniscule about one-third of one percent of its $67 billion budget. Those of us who need our little post offices are adamantly opposed to sacrificing them in order to help the Postal Service get out of this irresponsible mess that it got itself into. The Postal Service has stirred up a hornet’s nest and its going to take a long time to calm us hornets down. We should all let our senators and representatives in Washington know how we feel. Sen. Malcolm Mabry Jr. Dublin, Miss.

History of statistics: If baby girl was taken, she’s likely still alive KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Decades of statistics on infant abductions in the U.S. suggest one of the least likely scenarios in this week’s disappearance of a Kansas City baby is that a stranger broke into her home and quietly snatched her from her crib. But the numbers also lead national experts to believe that if 10-month-old Lisa Irwin were taken by an intruder in the middle of the night, as her parents told investigators, she is likely still alive. Strangers who kidnap infants or young children, though rare, often do so because they want a child of their own, not because they intend to hurt or kill the child, said David Finkelhor, director of the Crimes Against Children Research Center at the University of New Hampshire. “The recovery rate for infants is very, very high. There is real hope here,” added Ernie Allen, president of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in Arlington, Va. But the experts acknowledge that investigators often focus on close relatives when a baby goes missing, in part because statistics show that far more infants and young children

Lisa Irwin are killed by a parent than a stranger. “Suspicion almost always falls heavily on the parents, especially when it’s young kids,” Finkelhor said. “Fifteen hundred parents kill their kids every year, and that’s heavily focused on the under 1 year of age category.” Allen said his organization has handled 278 infant abduction cases during his nearly three decades with the group. Only 13 cases involved a stranger coming into a home and taking a baby, and all but one of those children were recovered unharmed.

Lisa’s parents, Jeremy Irwin and Deborah Bradley, reported their daughter missing early Tuesday. Their relationship with investigators chilled late Thursday, when police announced the parents were no longer talking to detectives. The parents quickly insisted they only needed a break from incessant police questioning. On Saturday, police spoke with the couple, Kansas City police spokesman Capt. Steve Young said. A day earlier, Bradley told The AP that police had accused her of being involved in her daughter’s disappearance, which she vehemently denies, and told her she failed a lie detector test. The family announced Saturday they were organizing a reward, hoping it would lead to new information. Allen and Finkelhor said that with little to go on, it’s natural for investigators to turn their focus to Bradley, who was the last person to see her little girl before she went missing. Finkelhor noted that in some cases, parents have concocted stories about a kidnapping after accidentally killing their child instead of facing the tragedy.

At least, the hellos aren’t empty Dad loves to tell the story of his first extended visit to Mississippi. It was an early Saturday morning in Hattiesburg — a football weekend. Dad visited an ATM on Hardy Street and, while standing at the machine, heard someone behind him. “Good morning,” the voice said. Dad froze. “In New York,” he later would say, “if someone said that at an ATM, the first thing you would do is reach for your wallet.” The man didn’t want the wallet. He was just being friendly. It probably never crossed his mind that the person on the receiving end would think to reach for the wallet. It’s one of the charms of living here, routinely overshadowed by our negatives. One place where we always will be neighbors is riding the side roads. In this state there are countless side roads and side roads off of side roads. Two lanes wide, winding through farmland or country neighborhoods, riding them is a peaceful endeavor. I am reminded of a Robert Hitt Neill piece that ran in this newspaper years ago. Neill wrote of the power of the two-finger greeting — as opposed to the New York one-finger style. When cruising down the country road with left hand atop the steering wheel, when a car passes, lift the index and middle finger — together — off the wheel. You’ll be amazed at the number of two-finger replies follow. Driving through rural Hinds County last Saturday with co-pilot Cali the Dog, each two-finger hello was returned by similar drivers. Never once did I worry about causing road rage or setting off someone’s buttons. On two-lane roads, we can rest assured that we are neighbors. I check often, to make sure the hellos continue. The day country road unspoken hellos cease, we are in deep trouble. Try it out on a Saturday morning. Believe me, there is no shortage of side roads around these parts. Load the family and the dog and go for a drive. Get out and breathe the fresh air. Worried about getting lost? Forget it. Just drive west long enough and soon a fairly substantial body of water will appear. Practice the two-finger hello on passing motorists and check for a return. My dad’s Mississippi is what I love about Mississippi. Good mornings at ATMs, two-finger passing hellos and being nice to one another. And if you see me at an ATM, say hello. I won’t reach for my wallet. It most certainly will be empty. •

N.O. chef backs program to help farms By Mary Foster The Associated Press PROGRESS, Miss. — It looks like the perfect, bucolic life — neat barns and a rustic store, cows grazing peacefully under the trees beside a pond, a sprawling house just across the road, and the third and fourth generation of dairy farmers working together. But the life Kenny and Jamie Mauthe planned was almost wiped out by Hurricane Katrina. Now they are slowly rebuilding their business in Pike County, about 100 miles north of New Orleans, with the help of a $20,000 loan set up by chef John Besh. The Mississippi native and host of the public television show “Chef John Besh’s New Orleans” is working through his namesake foundation to provide capital for small farms by way of low-interest loans. The Mauthes have had a long recovery since the 2005 storm: They once owned 350 acres but had to sell all but 50. They had to sell most of their 120 cows, too — now they have just 14. “The only damage we had here was to the roof of the barn. But it wiped out our market,” Kenny Mauthe said. “We mostly sold to New Orleans, and that was gone.” The family is once again selling pasteurized, but not homogenized milk, in oldfashioned glass bottles, and

Two would-be victims fought back in Vicksburg this weekend, one stopping an attempted armed robbery at a convenience store and the other seeing friends track a man who was arrested as a purse thief. The clerk at the Super Quick, 2700 Mission 66 at Alcorn Drive, told police that two men wearing dark clothing and masks entered the store around 10:30 Friday night. One waved a handgun and the other attempted to pull the cash register off the counter, Vicksburg police Lt. Bobby Stewart said Saturday. “The clerk physically pushed him away and out the door, and both suspects fled on foot toward Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard,” said Stewart. No one was injured and nothing was taken in the attack, and police are continuing to investigate, he said. At 6:30 a.m. Saturday, a woman reported that her Coach purse had been grabbed outside the McDonald’s at 2400 Clay St., Stewart said. The victim and some friends, all passengers on a tour bus from Alabama that had stopped in Vicksburg, were eating outside the restaurant when a man approached and asked for a cigarette. While smoking, he grabbed the woman’s purse and ran east on Clay Street, Stewart said. While police were called, one of the victim’s friends chased the man, keeping him in sight until officers arrived and arrested him, said the lieutenant Madricus Funches, 23, 1199 Brushy Creek Road, Georgetown, was in the Warren County Jail. Bond was set at $25,000, Stewart said. See Criminals, Page A8.

They are slowly rebuilding their business, but needed more capital to take it further — something a small farming operation is unlikely to find from traditional sources. That’s where Besh came in. “I know how difficult capital is to come by these days,” Besh said. “We’ve been successful with the restaurants, but finding the money I need can be difficult at times. This is a way to make an

impactful change and generate more small farmers.” Besh’s foundation has set up a program that guarantees low-interest loans — ranging from $1,000 to $20,000. It is not limited to Katrina victims. “There has been a huge resurgence in small and urban farming,” Besh said. “It’s where we get so much of our wonderful product today. But much of it is struggling. The issue a lot of times for these folks has been that they have not been able to find traditional funding.” Mauthes’ Progress Dairy Farm, which is now selling its products in farmers markets, some retail stores and to restaurants — Besh uses

them — was the first recipient of a Besh loan, receiving the maximum $20,000. Besh said others are in the application process. “We want to earn enough money to support ourselves and for our daughters to support themselves,” Jamie Mauthe said. “And I would like to get a new cheese maker so we can expand our product.” Kenny Mauthe and one of his daughters now work outside jobs as well as on the farm. The loans are available to farmers within a 200mile radius of New Orleans — including portions of Louisiana, Mississippi and See Farms, Page A8.

BRANDON — A Mississippi Highway Patrol trooper is suspended without pay after being indicted on three felony counts of prescription forgery. Rankin County District Attorney Michael Guest said Steve Barber was indicted early last month, but records were sealed until Friday. Barber is part of Troop C, based in Pearl. Barber waived arraignment and posted a $10,000 bond. His case is set for trial in March. The indictment accuses Barber of fraudulently obtaining the controlled substances oxycodone and hydrocodone July 15. He’s also charged with fraudulently obtaining oxycodone Aug. 3. Prosecutors had no record of whether Barber has an attorney. If convicted, he faces up to five years in prison and $1,000 for each count. Department of Public Safety spokesman Jon Kalahar says suspension without pay is standard procedure.

Police shoot man carrying knife at newspaper office SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (AP) — A man who showed up at the offices of a newspaper in a dazed state was shot and wounded by two police officers Saturday after he charged at them with a knife. The shooting happened just past 4 p.m. at the offices of the Daily Gazette after a quiet news day in Schenectady, a city of more than 60,000 just outside the state capital of Albany. The newspaper said in a story posted on its website that the man appeared weak and possibly medicated when he arrived. He talked his way into the locked building by asking a security guard for a drink of water. Then, he refused to leave and began wandering the halls. The man, who wasn’t immediately identified by either the

newspaper’s general manager called 911 when he saw that

the intruder was carrying a knife and bleeding from his

hand. The Gazette said the two officers who responded tried repeatedly to get the man to drop the weapon. “For 5 minutes they asked him to put the knife down,” said Linda Eldeen, a friend of general manager Daniel Beck’s who was at the office at the time. “He did start going at them. He looked like he was going to charge them.” Witnesses said the officers fired about five times when the man lurched at them from just a few feet away, still carrying the weapon. He was still breathing when emergency responders carried him away on a stretcher, the Gazette reported. Schenectady police Sgt. Matthew Dearing said police were still gathering information on what happened.

George W. Bush says he misses visits with veterans DALLAS (AP) — George W. Bush says that after eight years in the White House, he’s happy to be back home in Texas and out of the spotlight. But the former commanderin-chief tells The Associated Press there’s one aspect of his presidency he still misses: interaction with U.S. troops. And Bush, who sent them to wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, says that despite his desire to remain largely out of the public eye, he wants to make sure veterans and military members know they still have his support. “I was a little concerned that our veterans don’t think that I still respect them and care for them a lot,” Bush told the AP. He added later, “There’s nothing as courageous in my judgment as someone who had a leg blown off in combat overcoming the difficulties.”

Bush is hosting next week’s Warrior Open golf tournament in suburban Dallas, an event featuring memGeorge W. bers of the U.S. Bush Armed Forces wounded while serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, including those who lost limbs and suffered brain injuries. Bush joined more than a dozen wounded military members in the Warrior 100 — a 62-mile mountain bike ride he hosted in West Texas last spring. These public appearances are the exception to the lifestyle Bush has led in his postpresidency. After leaving office two years ago, Bush and former first lady Laura Bush bought a house in Dallas and started work on the

George W. Bush Presidential Center, slated to open in 2013. He has attended select events relating to the center, as well as a ceremony with President Barack Obama marking the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. But he has largely remained out of the public eye. Bush said he doesn’t want veterans to mistake his private nature with a lack of appreciation for what they’ve done on the battlefield. “They hadn’t seen me and they hadn’t seen me with the troops,” he said. “So therefore I am using mountain biking and golf to stay connected with the military, people who served during my presidency.” Military members and veterans groups have generally held Bush in high regard, despite the nationwide protests and international controversy that grew more fer-

vent as the American death toll grew in Afghanistan and Iraq under his command. More than 1,680 military members have died in Afghanistan since the U.S. began bombing there in October 2001, while more than 4,470 military members have died in Iraq since the war began there in March 2003. Another 46,000 have been wounded in both campaigns. “What I’m concerned about is that Americans forget the sacrifice,” Bush said. “I don’t think they are right now, but one of my objectives is to make sure they never do.” Bush, who since leaving office also has made appearances at events for organizations that benefit troops, said he gets inspiration from meeting members of the military who have overcome serious injuries. He said there’s not much he misses about

the presidency, but added he does miss being commander-in-chief because he has “great respect for those men and women who wear the uniform.” Brian “Ski” Donarski, 43, is among the veterans Bush has invited to the two-day golf tournament that starts Monday. The Army first lieutenant was seriously wounded when a mine blew up in Iraq in 2006 and spent 13 months rehabilitating from a traumatic brain injury, a fracture in his neck, bulged disks in his back and undergoing shoulder surgery. Though Bush has spent most of the past couple of years out of the limelight, Donarski never doubted the former president’s commitment to the troops. “I know he didn’t forget us,” he said.

A report run Tuesday showed 30,771 registered voters, Ashley-Palmertree said, an increase of 179 over the 30,592 on the rolls heading into the Aug. 2 party primaries. That increase plus last week’s stragglers stand to boost Warren County rolls about .8 percent for the general election, and nearly 1.5 percent more than the 30,401 on the rolls for last year’s general election for Congress. Local voter rolls have decreased since the 2008 presidential election and the 2007 state and county election, primarily because of routine purging during each election cycle to remove names deemed inactive, most commonly because they have either moved or died. In 2008, Warren County had 36,957 registered voters and in 2007, 35,550. Statewide, voter registration totals about 1.8 million. In just under a month, Warren County voters will elect all five seats on the Board of Supervisors. In addition, five of seven countywide offices are contested. • In the race for District 1 supervisor, Republican John Arnold, 57, faces independents Reed Birdsong, 51, the county’s building permit officer, and Jerry Briggs, 34, chief of the Culkin Volunteer Fire Department. Arnold ousted three-term incumbent David McDonald in the pri-

Libyans claim gains in Gadhafi hometown

Egyptian women chant slogans as they attend a demonstration in Tahrir Square in Cairo.

Christians feel pressure in Egypt CAIRO (AP) — On her first day to school, 15-year-old Christian student Ferial Habib was stopped at the doorstep of her new high school with clear instructions: either put on a headscarf or no school this year. Habib refused. While most Muslim women in Egypt wear the headscarf, Christians do not, and the move by administrators to force a Christian student to don it was unprecedented. For the next two weeks, Habib reported to school in the southern Egyptian village of Sheik Fadl every day in her uniform, without the head covering, only to be turned back by teachers. One day, Habib heard the school loudspeakers echoing her name and teachers with megaphones leading a number of students in chants of, “We don’t want Ferial here,” the teenager told The Associated Press. Habib was allowed last week to attend without the scarf, and civil rights advocates say her case stokes the fears of Egypt’s significant Christian minority that they will become the victims as Islamists grow more assertive after the Feb.

It also illustrates how amid the country’s political turmoil, with little sense of who is in charge and government control weakened, Islamic conservatives in lowlevel posts can step in and try to unilaterally enforce their own decisions. Wagdi Halfa, one of Habib’s lawyers, said the root problem is a lack of the rule of law. “We don’t want more laws but we want to activate the laws already in place,” he said. “We are in a dark tunnel in terms of sectarian tension. Even if you have the majority who are moderate Muslims, a minority of extremists can make big impact on them and

poison their minds.” In the past weeks, riots have broken out at two churches in southern Egypt, prompted by Muslim crowds angered by church construction. One riot broke out, near the city of Aswan, even after church officials agreed to a demand by local ultraconservative Muslims, called Salafis, that a cross and bells be removed from the building. The violence is particularly frustrating for Christians because soon after Mubarak’s fall the new government promised to review and lift heavy Mubarak-era restrictions on building or renovating churches. The promise raised hopes among Christians that the government would establish a clear legal right to build, resolving an issue that in recent years has increasingly sparked riots. But the review never came, and Salafi clerics have increased their rhetoric against Christians, including accusing them of seeking to spread their faith with new churches. The demand that all students wear the higab was a decision by administrators and teachers at the high school.

SIRTE, Libya — Libyan revolutionary forces claimed to have captured parts of a sprawling convention center that loyalists of Moammar Gadhafi have used as their main base in the ousted leader’s hometown and were shelling the city to try to rout snipers from rooftops in their offensive aimed at crushing this key bastion of the old regime. The inability to take Sirte, the most important remaining stronghold of Gadhafi supporters, more than six weeks after the capital fell has stalled efforts by Libya’s new leaders to set a timeline for elections and move forward toward democracy. Gadhafi supporters also hold the enclave of Bani Walid, where revolutionary forces have been stymied by a challenging terrain. But the transitional leadership has said it will declare liberation after Sirte’s capture.

10 more found dead in Mexico’s Veracruz VERACRUZ, Mexico — Mexican officials say 10 more bodies have been found in what appears to be more bloodshed in the battle between rival cartels for control of drug trafficking in the port city of Veracruz. The discoveries raise the number of deaths since Sept. 20 to at least 75 as the relatively new Jalisco New Generation gang claims to be attacking members of the Zetas cartel. A statement Saturday from the Veracruz state prosecutor’s office says seven dead were found piled in a pickup truck late Friday. Three more dead were found on roadsides in two other locations earlier in the day. Police found 32 bodies left in three houses in Veracruz on Thursday.

Sidelines Phillies’ Howard has torn Achilles

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard might miss the start of spring training and possibly part of the regular season after tearing an Achilles tendon. The power-hitting first baseman was injured on the final play of Philadelphia’s season-ending loss to St. Louis in Game 5 of the NL division series Friday night, falling as he ran out of the batter’s box on his groundout. The team said Saturday night an MRI revealed a rupture of Howard’s left Achilles tendon. Injuries of that type usually require at least six months of recuperation. Howard, the 2006 NL MVP, batted .253 with a team-high 33 homers and 116 RBIs this season.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — The Mississippi State Bulldogs avoided the controversy that would have ensued had they lost to winless AlabamaBirmingham. But in the process, they might have created a quarterback controversy. Backup quarterback Tyler Russell replaced an ineffective Chris Relf to start the second half and threw three touchdowns to help Mississippi State overcome a poor first half and defeat UAB 21-3 on Saturday. With Relf at quarterback, the Bulldogs (3-3) had 118 yards in total offense in the first half and punted five times. They trailed 3-0 at halftime. After the change was made to Russell, who had played in only two of the first five games this season, MSU gained 298 yards and punted only once. “It wasn’t that Chris was playing poorly. I just felt we needed a spark,” MSU coach Dan Mullen said. “I guess putting Tyler in was the best thing I could do to try to create a spark. He came in and played exceptionally well. He had a lot of energy.” On his second possession, Russell led the Bulldogs on a seven-play, 89-yard touchdown drive. The score came on an 18-yard pass to Marcus Green, who outjumped UAB linebacker Lamanski Ware for the ball at the 4-yard line and ran in for the touchdown. Russell followed that with fourth-quarter touchdown passes of 57 yards to Chad Bumphis and 20 yards to Malcolm Johnson. He finished with 166 yards on 11-of-13 passing, including a stretch of eight consecutive completions. “He (Mullen) just said

Mississippi State quarterback Tyler Russell looks for a receiver during the second half of Saturday’s game against UAB. Russell completed 11 of 13 passes for 166 yards and three touchdowns as Mississippi State won 21-3. he was going to give me a shot to start the second half,” Russell said. “Once I got that first completion, I calmed down and just played football.” Mullen decided to make the change after watching the Bulldogs get shut out in the first half by a UAB team that had allowed an average of 35 points per game this season. MSU’s only scoring threat in the half ended when Relf was sacked for an

11-yard loss, and then Derek Depasquale missed a 32-yard field-goal attempt. After that, UAB (0-5) held the Bulldogs to a total of 59 yards on their next five possessions of the half. “We were a little flat in the first half,” Mullen said. “Everyone was looking around for somebody else to make the play.” Relf, who had only 46 yards passing in the first half, did not complain about the

switch to Russell, though he said the offensive gameplan seemed to open up more in the second half. “I just think we need to throw the ball down the field more. I didn’t have that chance and Tyler did,” Russell said. “He made the big throws. I’m just happy with the win.” Five of MSU’s first seven plays to start the second half See Bulldogs, Page B3.

PASCAGOULA — Carlton Campbell’s punt attempt in the end zone ricocheted off Elliott Bexley’s helmet and back into Campbell’s hands. The stunned St. Aloysius punter and running back scampered for 34 yards, the team’s second-longest play from scrimmage. It was that kind of night for the Flashes on Saturday against Resurrection, which demolished the Flashes 39-7 in a disappointing dismemberment. Everything that could’ve gone wrong, did for St. Forest Logue Al (1-7, 1-5 Region 4-1A). Four mishandled snaps by three different quarterbacks. Two interceptions. Four sacks.

Irvine, Hall take first at Over the River Run By Jeff Byrd A beautiful day helped create a record crowd for the 23rd annual Over the River Run on Saturday morning on the old Mississippi River Bridge. More than 600 runners, walkers and fun run participants competed in the annual fall event. Tim Irvine, 43, of Meridian was the overall 5-mile road race winner with a time of 29 minutes, 31 seconds. Irvine, who was competing in the race for the first time, said the sunny day made it ideal to get out and run across the Mississippi River. “It was a good day to run and I was able to get out to a lead and make them come get me,” Irvine said. “It’s a pretty hard race, even though it is straight.” Jerry White of Brandon was second in 30:36, and served as Irvine’s main competition.

White said Irvine is tough to beat when he gets a lead. “He’s real good when he’s running out front and he was able to keep it up,” White said. “It was much tougher coming back because the wind and sun was in your face. It was real nice going out.” The race also was a fun one for Vicksburg’s Kristi Hall, who returned to the winner’s circle in the women’s race. She posted a winning time of 33:56. “For all those tough runners out there, thank you for not beating me today,” Hall said with a laugh. “You know, I’m 33, and with every race, it See Run, Page B5.

Golf Baird in position to end winless streak SAN MARTIN, Calif. — Briny Baird drove the 17th green and made a 15-foot eagle putt for a 7-under 64 to take a two-shot lead Saturday at the Open and give him a chance to finally win a PGA Tour event. Baird has gone 347 tournaments over 12 years on tour without hoisting a trophy. But he has been around long enough to know that anything can happen in the final round, especially with Ernie Els and Paul Casey in the last group with him at CordeValle. Baird doesn’t see his lack of closing experience as a big disadvantage. “It’s got to be good,” Baird said. “I’ll ask them what they’re thinking on every hole. I’d get some really good answers, and it would probably drive them insane.” Els failed to make up any ground on the easier back nine and had a 67. Casey saved par from a hazard on the final hole to salvage a 68. Tiger Woods, in his first event in nearly two months, shot a 68 and was nine shots behind.

College football Big 12 director hopes Missouri sticks around STILLWATER, Okla. — Oklahoma State president Burns Hargis, the new chairman of the Big 12’s board of directors, expressed hope Saturday that Missouri will stay in the conference. But right now, it’s nothing more than hope. “I really think after all’s said and done and everything is considered, I think they’ll stay. I hope they’ll stay,” Hargis said during Oklahoma State’s game against Kansas. “It’s a great school and great people and great rivalries. I think it would just be a real loss to the conference for them to leave.” Missouri was the lone Big 12 member to abstain from the league’s votes this week to invite TCU as a new member and to give the money from their top two levels of televised games to the league for the next six years.

Southern Miss torpedoes Navy ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Halfway to its first 10-win season in 23 years, Southern Miss made Navy pay for its early inability to score, then poured it on for its fourth straight victory. With a bye week ahead before a stretch of six Conference USA games, the Golden Eagles will have plenty of time to savor a most satisfying triumph. Austin Davis passed for 283 yards and three touchdowns, and Southern Miss beat Navy 63-35 on Saturday. “Since I’ve been there, I think this is as good as we’ve executed from the start to the finish,” said Davis, who engineered nine touchdown drives in 13 attempts. “I thought we didn’t let up in the second half. We played just as well in the second half as we did in the first.” Jeremy Hester rushed for 118 yards and a score and Tracy Lampley ran for two touchdowns for the Golden Eagles (5-1). Davis completed 21 of 23 passes and added 75 rushing yards and a touchdown on 12 carries. Though Southern Miss couldn’t completely corral Navy’s vaunted running attack, the Golden Eagles didn’t let the Midshipmen grind out so much yardage that they were playing from behind early on. “I knew they could score,” Southern Miss coach Larry Fedora said. “But I thought we could make them snap it and score and eat some clock. They were getting too many big plays and when they are doing that offensively, you have to answer.” Navy (2-3) rallied for 28 second-half points but lost a third consecutive game for the first time in four seasons under coach Ken Niumatalolo, surrendering a season high in points. “It’s been a long time since we got our butts whipped like that,” Niumatalolo said. “And that starts with me. It was a thorough beating.” The Midshipmen played without fullback Alexander Teich, their leading rusher, who was held out for disciplinary reasons. Navy’s Delvin Diggs ran for two touchdowns, and Proctor added 123 rushing yards. It was the most points allowed by Navy since a 65-19 home loss to North Carolina State on Sept. 7, 2002. Southern Miss, meanwhile, topped 50 points for the second time in four games and is averaging 48 points a game during its winning streak.

JSU cruises past Arkansas-Pine Bluff From staff reports Casey Therriault threw a pair of touchdown passes and ran for another score, as Jackson State used a big second half to pull away from Arkansas-Pine Bluff and claim a 48-10 victory on Saturday. Therriault completed 17 of 22 passes for 263 yards. He threw a 77-yard touchdown pass to Rico Richardson in the first quarter and a 45-yarder to Richardson in the second, but Jackson State led just 14-10 at halftime. Early in the third quarter, Arlane McCree returned a blocked punt for a touchdown and the Tigers started rolling. B.J. Lee scored on an 8-yard run with 5 1/2 minutes to go in the quarter and JSU tacked on three more scores in the fourth to turn the game into a rout. Richardson finished with

five receptions for 174 yards for Jackson State, and Tommy Gooden rushed for 107 yards on only 12 carries.

Millsaps 33, Austin 27

Belhaven 45, Faulkner 27

Quarterback Alex Williams threw for one touchdown and ran for two more scores to lead Belhaven over Faulkner University. Justin Gaines rushed for 250 yards and two touchdowns for Belhaven. Both scores came in the fourth quarter, after Faulkner had rallied from an early 14-point deficit to take a 27-24 lead.

were passes. And though the Bulldogs ran the ball more often once they gained the lead, with Vick Ballard finishing with 101 yards rushing, the initial change in strategy was noticeable to the Blazers. “It seemed they opened up their playbook a little more when they put (Russell) in,” UAB cornerback Cornelius Richards said. “He threw the ball a little more than (Relf).” As for the Blazers, they gained a total of 340 yards but managed only a 37-yard field goal by Ty Long. UAB committed two turnovers in Mississippi State territory in the second half, and quarterback Jonathan Perry overthrew several receivers who were open for potentially big gains. “You have to hit those downfield throws, and we did not get that done,” UAB coach Neil Callaway said, “We made too many mistakes that cost us certain plays. We are not the kind of team that can withstand mistakes like that.” Mississippi State will return to Southeastern Conference play next week when it hosts South Carolina.

hopes it once harbored have been replaced by a desire to merely win another game before the clock runs out on the season. The Flashes host Stringer on Friday night, then have a bye week before finishing the schedule at home against first-place Bogue Chitto and on the road at Mount Olive. “We didn’t get off the bus,” St. Al coach B.J. Smithhart said. “We’ve got to fix a lot of problems. We’ve got to get a lot better.” In the early going Saturday, it looked like St. Al came ready to fight. On the third play from scrimmage, Carlisle Koestler hit Zane Russell on a slant that Russell turned into a 56-yard catch and run. But from there, the Flashes went backward and Blake Hudson pushed a field goal attempt wide left. It never seemed to get better after that. After St. Al’s defense forced a three-and-out, Smithhart sent Forest Logue in at quarterback for a change of pace.

Millsaps (3-3, 2-1 Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference) rolled up 507 yards of total offense and held off a late charge by Austin College. Konner Joplin was 24-of37 passing for 328 yards and two touchdowns for Millsaps. Jason O’Rear caught nine passes for 167 yards and a TD.

Darius Wilson rushed for 138 yards, LiDarral Bailey ran for two touchdowns, and Mary Hardin-Baylor beat Mississippi College. Steven Knight rushed for 118 yards and a touchdown for Mississippi College, which gave up two defensive touchdowns and another on special teams.

up Alonzo Peavy’s 16-yard touchdown run. Resurrection forced a three-and-out after sacking Koestler on third down, then went to work with a power running game. Jared Shannon finished the drive on the first play of the second quarter with a 5-yard TD run to put Resurrection up 14-0 after Parker Williams’ PAT. St. Al finally got a drive going, as a pass interference penalty on a Shannon interception gave the Flashes a big first down. Logue took the handoff out of the gun 30 yards to paydirt to cut the deficit to 14-7 after Hudson’s extra point. As the Eagles did all night, they responded. Shannon’s second touchdown, an 18-yard run with under three minutes remaining in the half, capped a nine-play, 74-yard drive. St. Al’s final drive of the second quarter stalled, as Koestler was sacked twice. Campbell’s punt was taken by Shannon, who returned it 35 yards to the St. Al 42. On the next play, freshman quarterback Larry Sisson heaved a toss to Shannon, who beat Campbell and

another St. Al defender for a jump ball at the 20. Shannon slipped out of the grasp of the two St. Al defenders and scored a back-breaking TD with just 14 seconds left in the half to put Resurrection up 27-7. The Flashes left the field at the half stunned and surprised. “Maybe it was playing on Saturday. Maybe it was the long bus ride,” Senior center Robert Arledge said about St. Al’s poor performance. “I just don’t know.” In the second half, it was more of the same. Resurrection scored on its first drive on a 33-yard run by Peavy and went to their air on its final drive, as Sisson hit four straight completions and capped the scoring with a 20-yard TD hookup with Irving Spikes. “We knew it was hard to click on all cylinders after a four-game losing streak,” Resurrection coach Rocky Gaudin said. “In the past four weeks, we played four of the top teams in the state of Mississippi and we had chances to win all four of those games. So I’m proud of our kids for bouncing back.”

Experience at quarterback wasn’t the only advantage top-ranked LSU held over reeling Florida. Spencer Ware rushed for 109 yards and two scores, each of LSU’s senior quarterbacks passed for touchdowns, and the Tigers comfortably defeated 17th-ranked Florida 41-11 on Saturday. Jarrett Lee gave the Tigers (6-0, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) the lead for good on their second offensive play, hitting Rueben Randle deep over the middle for a 46-yard touchdown. Jordan Jefferson used a jump pass to Mitch Joseph for another score. LSU’s fast, fierce defense was too much for Florida (4-2, 2-2), which started freshman Jacoby Brissett at quarterback because of injuries to senior John Brantley and freshman Jeff Driskel. Brissett was intercepted twice on deep throws, once each by safety Brandon Taylor and star cornerback Tyrann Mathieu. LSU led 17-0 after its first three possessions and was never threatened in what became the sixth double-digit victory in as many games for the Tigers, who have trailed for only 6:33 all season. The Tigers more than doubled the Gators in total yards, 453213. LSU had 238 yards rushing alone.

down in his fifth straight 100yard effort for the Crimson Tide (6-0, 3-0 SEC). The Commodores (3-2, 1-2) trailed by only seven points until the final minute of the opening half, then Alabama took over with four straight touchdown drives.

Celebrating 25 years of columns This month marks 25 years that I have been writing a weekly syndicated newspaper column. It started off by accident, really. I went to Ole Miss out of high school to play football, but I scored high enough on the ACT that they put me in Writer’s English, which was a graduate course, although I only got regular freshman credit for it. Dr. Tom Truss made us write for four years, but he pretty much let us write about what we wanted to, which I think is a key to writing. If he had wanted me to turn out four years of romance short stories, I’d never have written another line, because even after 47 years of marriage, I still don’t understand women. Anyway, I wrote a lot, made good grades and continued to write after graduation. At first, lots of love letters back to Betsy while I was deployed and in combat. After I got back home, I became a closet writer. I was farming, so was getting up early. Betsy doesn’t like to get up early, and doesn’t care for me to bother her when I get up early, so I’d slip out of bed, make coffee, and write for an hour before going to the fields. Fill up a legal pad, stick it in a drawer, and get out another. Whatever I wanted to write: short stories, essays, memories, started a couple of novels. Did that for 20 years. Then Betsy was having coffee one afternoon with the wife of the editor of the local paper, and Virginia


Keselowski takes race at Kansas

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Brad Keselowski dominated the Nationwide Series race Saturday at Kansas Speedway, leading 173 of 200 laps on the 1.5-mile tri-oval. Keselowski, the Sprint Cup winner at the track in June, fell behind Carl Edwards after a late caution, but pulled ahead with 11 laps to go and beat Edwards by 2.795 seconds. “I wish I could take this car to tomorrow,” Keselowski said about the Cup race today. Elliott Sadler was third, followed by Paul Menard, points leader Ricky Stenhouse Jr., and Kevin Harvick. Keselowski, a four-time winner in the Nationwide Series this year, only lost the lead twice over the course of the race, each time regaining it within 10 laps. With the third-place finish, Sadler narrowed Stenhouse’s lead in the standings to 20 points with four races to go. Reed Sorenson, who lost his ride with Turner Motorsports earlier this week despite sitting third in the standings, finished 26th in MacDonald Motorsports’ second car and fell 70 points behind Stenhouse. Edwards’ second-place finish in Roush Fenway’s No. 60 Ford narrowed the owner’s points standings as well. The No. 60 now trails Joe Gibbs Racing’s No. 18 Toyota by seven points, after coming into the race down by 13.

asked where was Bob? Betsy replied that I was of course hunting, that I had showed her in the Bible before we married where it says that all Southern Christian men must deer hunt between Thanksgiving and New Year’s. To which Virginia lamented, “Oh, I wish Mac did something besides play golf! Everyone else hunts or fishes, and we really need something outdoorsy for the paper.” And Betsy pulled some legal pads out of a drawer and handed them to her, saying, “See if you like these stories. Bob wrote them.” They didn’t even tell me! Anyhoo, within 10 months I had enough feedback to think I had a shot at book publishing, and my first, “The Flaming Turkey,” was a small press best seller, mainly because we got the crop out early that fall and I hit the road, walking into every little bookstore in every town within 250 miles. After getting an order, I’d walk into the newspaper office to give an interview with a local boy with his first book, then offer the paper a dozen columns, free, from those stories on the legal pads in the drawer. “If your readers like them, I’ll bill you after the first of the year for next year’s weekly

columns,” I’d tell them. Sixty-six papers paid me for “The Brownspur Bugle” column in January 1987, but I started it with freebies in October 1986, 25 years ago this month. A few years later, Mercury Syndications picked me up and took “Bugle” nationwide with over 100 papers. Sadly, a decade later, Mercury went broke, but I self-syndicated with several dozen Southern papers who continued to pay faithfully and I have never missed a deadline, usually staying a week ahead. I decided early on that I’d just write the country-living outdoorsy feel-good stuff, the warm and fuzzy. There are enough writers doing the nasty whiney stuff. My only aim has been that the reader feels better post-Neill than pre-Neill. The one thing that I laid out to my papers was, “Look, we are called The Bible Belt down heah. I ain’t selling my brand of religion, but God is a friend of mine, so if it bothers you for me to occasionally mention God or Jesus, let’s walk away from this right now.” Not one editor disageed. Some now ask for prayers. All you readers, editors, and publishers have been wonderful to me for these past 25 years. Thank you for all the feedback and your friendship, the opportunities to speak, all the book and CD sales. You’ve been a teetotal Blessing!

Run Continued from Page B1. could be the last one for me. I had no idea what I’d do today, because I was in a lot better shape earlier this year.” Eclecius Franklin, a 15-year-old runner from Murrah High School in Jackson, was third overall in 30:51 and Collin Johnson, 36, of Terry was fourth in 31:16. Brian Gilbert of Hattiesburg rounded out the top five and Shannon Carson of Pearl was second in the women’s race. Steve Sullivan, 56, of Vicksburg won the 5-mile walk for the first time. “I haven’t done this in a long time,” Sullivan said. “Over the last 11 years of the race, I’ve been in the run six or seven times, but it’s the first time for the walk. It’s pretty simple, straight out and straight back.”

Elizabeth Joyner of Vicksburg won the Run Thru History women’s walk in March. On Saturday she added a first-place trophy from the Over the River Run. “This is my first win in this race,” Joyner said. “I felt my time (56:02) was slow.” Charlie Thornton, 10, of Brandon won the one-mile fun run. Margaret Case, 12, of Cloudland, Ga. was the girls’ fun run winner. Race director Annette Kirklin said the sunny weather played a big part in delivering a record crowd. “This was the biggest turnout since we took over the race,” Kirklin said. “The weather was a big help, but the race itself is gaining in popularity.”

Carolina rookie Newton takes aim at the Saints CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Cam Newton is learning how much he hates losing. He doesn’t like it, either. Carolina’s rookie quarterback sat stewing in front of his locker at Soldier Field following last Sunday’s 34-29 loss to Chicago. When a teammate tried to approach him to offer encouragement, Newton shrugged him off and went back to his slow burn. The Panthers (1-3) have fallen short in three of their first four games, leaving Newton and many of his teammates aggravated over their inability to close games out. When asked if he’s sought help from anyone in dealing with the losing part of the NFL, Newton gave an odd look and said, “I don’t think anybody could. Unless it’s coming from a world-class loser — like ‘Let me tell you how to lose.”’ He won’t be looking for answers from New Orleans today. Carolina’s three losses have been by seven points or less, and the Panthers will try to turn things around when they go against Drew Brees and the Saints in what could be a highscoring game. The Saints (3-1) are second in the league in passing, averaging 335 yards per game. The Panthers are right behind, ranked third at 334.8 yards per game. Brees and Newton, along with four others, are on pace to break Dan Marino’s singleseason passing record of 5,084 yards set in 1984. Newton will face a Saints defense that blitzed more than any team in the league last season under coordinator Gregg Williams. “It’s a big pressure team and they try to confuse your

They bring it, simple and plain. We just have to stay one step ahead of them.” The good news for the Panthers is Newton has thrived off the blitz. He threw for a franchise-record 432 yards in a loss against Super Bowl champion Green Bay. He’s accounted for all nine Carolina touchdowns — five passing and four rushing. Along with averaging more than 40 passes a game, Newton has become the team’s primary option on goal-line rushing plays and in short-yardage situations. “One thing he does really well is when he feels pressure he kind of steps to it, makes a guy freeze, then he just uses his athleticism there and makes a play,” said Saints safety Roman Harper. “It almost seems like high school or college.”

Raiders’ owner Davis dead at age 82 OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Al Davis was a rebel with a cause — “Just win, baby” he exhorted his beloved Oakland Raiders. And as the NFL well knows, he was also a rebel with a subpoena. Davis, who bucked league authority time and again and won three Super Bowl titles during his half-century in professional football, died Saturday. He was 82. The Hall of Famer died at his home in Oakland, the team said. The cause of death was not immediately disclosed. Davis was one of the most important figures in pro football history from his role in the development of the AFL, the merger with the NFL and the success he built on the field with the Raiders. “Al Davis’s passion for football and his influence on the game were extraordinary,” Commissioner Roger Goodell said. “He defined the Raiders and contributed to pro football at every level. The respect he commanded was evident in the way that people listened carefully every time he spoke. He is a true legend of the game whose impact and legacy will forever be part of the NFL.” Davis was also a litigious gadfly. That was most evident during the 1980s when he went to court — and won — for the right to move his team from Oakland to Los Ange-

The associated press

Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis gives a thumbs-up to fans prior to a game in 1998. The team announced that Davis died Saturday at the age of 82. les. Even after he moved the Raiders back to the Bay Area in 1995, he sued for $1.2 billion to establish that he still owned the rights to the L.A. market. Before that, though, he was a pivotal figure in hastening the merger between the AFL — where he served as commissioner — and the more established NFL. Davis was not initially in favor of a merger, but his aggressive pursuit of NFL players for his fledgling league and team helped bring

about the eventual 1970 combination of the two leagues into what is now the most popular sport in the country. “Al Davis was a good man, and we were friendly rivals,” Steelers chairman emeritus Dan Rooney said in a statement released by the Steelers. “He was a football man and did a lot for the game of football. I had a lot of respect for him, and he will be missed throughout the entire NFL.” Elected in 1992 to the Pro

Football Hall of Fame, Davis was a trailblazer during his half-century in professional football. He hired the first black head coach of the modern era — Art Shell in 1988. He hired the first Latino coach, Tom Flores; and the first woman CEO, Amy Trask. And he was infallibly loyal to his players and officials: to be a Raider was to be a Raider for life. Coach Hue Jackson told the team of Davis’ death at a meeting in Houston on Saturday morning. Fans dressed in Raiders jerseys, meanwhile, quickly made their way to team headquarters in Alameda, where a black flag with the team logo flew at half-staff and a makeshift memorial formed at the base of the flag pole. Davis is survived by his wife, Carol, and son Mark, who Davis had said would run the team after his death. “Definitely shocking news for us,” Raiders quarterback Jason Campbell said. “We got here last night and then you wake up this morning and hear we lost our owner, the man who built this team for many, many years, it’s tough to take in as a team. We understand what he meant to this organization. He loved his players, and that didn’t matter if you were here now, or if you played for him 30 years ago. He still loved all his players.”

peopLE Michael Jackson’s family pays tribute Three generations of Michael Jackson’s family — with a few notable absentees — joined an eclectic roster of entertainers Saturday to pay tribute to the King of Pop, a celebration of the late star’s life overshadowed by the Los Angeles manslaughter trial of his doctor. On a Cardiff, Wales, stage shaped like a giant glove, participants performed songs from across Jackson’s career — from his childhood with the Jackson 5 through monster solo albums like “Thriller” and “Bad.” Participants urged fans to ignore the criticism and planning glitches that marked preparations for the show in Wales, and to revel in the celebration of Jackson’s musical legacy. “It’s not about the controversy,” said R&B star Ne-Yo, who kicked off the show with a rendition of “Billie Jean,” complete with some passable moonwalking. “It’s not about the trial. It’s not about his death. It’s about celebrating his life. It’s about celebrating his music.” The crowd at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium did just that, roaring with approval as Jackson’s brothers Marlon, Tito and Jackie — three-fifths of the original Jackson 5 — took the stage to perform “Blame It On the Boogie” with British boyband JLS. The lineup for the “Michael Forever” show included Christina Aguilera, Smokey Robinson, Gladys Knight, Leona Lewis, Jennifer Hudson, Cee Lo Green — and, via video, Beyonce. The concert has divided the King of Pop’s family and followers.

ANd one more Man sues in-laws over injury This Thanksgiving could be a little uncomfortable for one Michigan family after a Detroit-area man hurt in a hunt for a Christmas wreath sued his in-laws. A Michigan appeals court has overruled a trial court judge and said the lawsuit filed by Christopher Karim should go to a jury. Karim had left work early to help with Christmas decorations at the West Bloomfield home of his in-laws, Salman and Regina Konja. He was in the attic looking for a wreath when he stepped on drywall instead of plywood and fell to the garage floor. The appeals court’s decision says Karim’s mother-in-law had just said, “No, don’t step there.” The decision doesn’t describe Karim’s injuries.


BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — People can be a bit touchy, so tactful handling of all your important one-on-one relationships is essential. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Co-workers or helpmates could unintentionally cause problems for you. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — It’s always important to be extremely selective in whom you place your trust, but it is especially vital that you plan wisely when finances are involved. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Stifle any disagreement that pops up between you and your mate as promptly as possible.

Famed pianist Roger Williams dies at 87 LOS ANGELES (AP) — Roger Williams, the virtuoso pianist who topped the Billboard pop chart in the 1950s and played for nine U.S. presidents during a long career, died Saturday. He was 87. Williams died at his home in Los Angeles of complications from pancreatic cancer, according to his former publicist Rob Wilcox. Known as an electrifying stage performer and an adept improviser, Williams effortlessly switched between musical styles. “Roger was one of the greatest pianists in the world and could play anything to classical music to jazz. He was one of the greatest personalities I’ve ever known,” said Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, a longtime friend of Williams and himself a musician. “He could touch any audience, from teenagers to senior citizens.” Williams’ 1955 hit “Autumn Leaves” was the only piano instrumental to reach No. 1 on the Billboard pop charts. It remains the best-selling piano record of all time, with more than 2 million sold. Nicknamed the “pianist to the presidents,” Williams played for every commander in chief from Harry Truman to George H.W. Bush. His last trip to the White House was in 2008, when he performed at a luncheon for then-First Lady Laura Bush. Williams was good friends with Jimmy Carter, with whom he shared a birthday. When the two men turned 80, Williams played a 12-hour marathon at the Jimmy Carter Library and Museum in Atlanta, with the former president in attendance. Born Louis Wertz in Nebraska, he started playing piano at age 3. By age 9 he was prolific with several instruments and could play anything by ear. “I had a piano teacher growing up who would never play a song for me, she would make me play it from sheet music so I could learn to read music,”

Roger Williams plays during his 83rd birthday celebration in 2007. Williams said, according to biographical information of the musician provided by Wilcox. As a teenager, he was given his own 15-minute radio show on KRNT-AM, which was broadcast live from a Des Moines, Iowa, department store. Later he hosted a program on WHO-AM, where he first met the station’s young sports announcer, Ronald “Dutch” Reagan. The two men started a friendship which lasted over 60 years. Williams moved to New York to study jazz at the Juilliard School of Music. He won performing contests on the popular radio shows “Arthur Godfrey’s Talent Scouts” and Dennis James’ “Chance of a Lifetime.” Soon after, Williams was signed to Kapp Records, where founder Dave Kapp

was determined to find a hit for the young prodigy. Producers decided on a shortened arrangement of “Autumn Leaves,” which Williams recalled first clocked in at three minutes and three seconds. “In those days the disc jockeys would not play a record over three minutes long. So Kapp asked if I could play the thirds a little faster. I did and it came in at two minutes and 59 seconds,” Williams said, according to Wilcox. It was an instant hit and catapulted Williams to national renown. He followed it up with a string of hits including “Born Free,” “The Impossible Dream,” “Theme From Somewhere In Time,” and “Lara’s Theme from Dr. Zhivago.” Williams became a popular guest on the top television shows of the time including

“The Ed Sullivan Show,” “The Perry Como Show, and “The Steve Allen Show.” He is the first pianist to be honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He also received the Lifetime Achievement Award from Steinway & Sons. On his 75th birthday, Williams played a 12-hour marathon at Steinway Hall in New York City, a stunt he repeated several time in the following years. I n M a r c h , Wi l l i a m s announced on his website that he had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. A few days later he played his last concert, in Palm Desert, California. Williams is survived by his daughters, Laura Fisher and Alice Jung, and five grandchildren. Funeral services are pending.

Granddaughter too young to withstand harsh criticism Dear Abby: My mother watches my two children before and after school and during the breaks. She is a caring person, but she is also very critical of my daughter. (She’s fine with my son.) Mom constantly tells my daughter she needs to lose weight or exercise more, or her hair looks stringy, or she isn’t dressed properly. My daughter is only 9. My mother did this to me when I was younger, and it made me feel I could never live up to her standards. How should I approach her about this? I don’t want my daughter to feel inadequate. She’s a beautiful, intelligent little girl. — Frustrated in Missouri Dear Frustrated: Deal with this firmly, before your mother erodes your daughter’s selfesteem as she did yours. Tell her how her constant criticism made you feel, that you don’t want the same thing to happen to your little girl, and that anytime she’s tempted to make a negative comment, she should substitute a POSITIVE one instead. Be direct with her, and if she isn’t able to comply, make other arrangements for your daughter. Dear Abby: My siblings have noticed my distant, odd behavior toward one of my brothers. This sibling and I have



a history of incest. He raped me repeatedly for years, and I want nothing to do with him. When the family gathers, one or the other of us declines the invitation if the other one is going to be present. I have told one sibling, “We just don’t get along — old stuff, ya’ know!” and left it at that. I want to keep the reason to myself. I feel I might be pushed for a better answer. Shouldn’t “old stuff” be enough of a reason? Should I tell or not? — Should I or Shouldn’t I? Dear Should I?: A person who repeatedly rapes someone “for years” is a predator. This wasn’t two kids “experimenting”; it was sexual assault. How do you know he didn’t prey on other siblings or cousins? You should have sought counseling about this years ago, and it’s still not too late. Once you do, I’m sure you’ll find the strength to stand up for yourself and speak out. Dear Abby: Seven years ago, when I was 25, I quit a good job before I had a new one. Hard

times ultimately led to my husband and me divorcing. I went back to school and am now starting a new career. But I can’t help but feel that if I had not quit my job years back, I’d be established in a career by now and still be married. I never listened to anyone back then, although I was polite and quiet. I have grown from the experience, but my heart aches for what I lost. I don’t drink or do drugs, so there is no numbing this pain. How do I get over my regrets and heal? — Looking Back in Illinois Dear Looking Back: You can’t change the past. You can only concentrate on and build

a future. Do that by making a conscious effort to STAY IN THE PRESENT. When you feel yourself slipping backward and reliving the pain, pull yourself into the here and now. Then thank your higher power for your health, your job, and the chance to rebuild your emotional and financial future. Regret is the cancer of life. Dwell on it, and it will keep you from progressing.

new on the shelves The Warren County-Vicksburg Public Library reports on new books regularly. • “Undisp u t e d ” by Chris Jericho tells how he became the world champion in 1,372 easy steps. Jericho takes Chris us from ChiJericho cago to Tokyo, New Delhi to Kuala Lumpur, Winnipeg to Madison Square Garden, as he details his classic rivalries with The Rock, Steve Austin, HHH, Shawn Michaels and John Cena, along with all the politics and backstage machinations he faced outside the ring. He also describes his unique relationship with Vince McMahon and the long road they traveled to find respect for each other. But it was only after Jericho became the first Undisputed World champion in the history of the wrestling business that he became disenchanted with the WWE and decided to walk away after 15 years to further his other lifelong dream of being a rock star. His band, Fozzy, proceeded to tour the world playing everywhere from the smallest sports bars in Pennsylvania to the biggest festivals in England. All the while experiencing the same kinds of glorifying highs and embarrassing lows he faced while building his wrestling career a decade earlier. • “Revelations” by Mason Betha is his story. Mason “Mase” Betha’s meteoric rise to fame is one of rap’s great success stories. But just as he was posed to sign a multimillion-dollar deal with Bad Boy, Mase walked away. He is now a pastor, life-changing inspirational speaker, and founder of a nondenominational movement called S.A.N.E. (Saving a Nation Endangered) Ministries. Having turned his back on superstardom, he reveals in this fascinating memoir the

rhyme and reason behind his choice to leave a glamorous life of extraordinary wealth and influence to become a pastor with a powerful message for America’s youth. • “Untied” by Meredith Baxter is her memoir of family, fame, and floundering. Meredith Baxter is a beloved and Meredith iconic televiBaxter sion actress. Her warmth, humor and brilliant smile made her one of the most popular women on television, with millions of viewers following her on the small screen each week. Yet her success masked a tumultuous personal story and a harrowing private life. For the first time, Baxter is ready to share her incredible highs (working with Robert Redford, Doris Day, Lana Turner, and the cast of Family Ties) and lows (a thorny relationship with her mother, a difficult marriage to David Birney, and a bout with breast cancer), finally revealing the women behind the image. • “Roseannearchy” by Roseanne Barr offers dispatches from the nut farm. Barr is a force of nature. Whether Roseanne taking the Barr sitcom world by storm, challenging accepted social norms or battling the wild pigs inhabiting her nut farm in Hawaii, she is not to be trifled with. In this return to the printed page, Roseanne unleashes her razor-sharp observations on hypocrisy, hubris and self-perpetuating institutions of questionable value — as well as menopause, pharmaceuticals and her grandkids. And she’s as controversial, original and

funny as ever. • “Every Day by the Sun” by Dean Faulkner Wells is a memoir of the Faulkners of Mississippi. Their legacy includes pioneers, noble and ignoble, war veterans, three never-convicted murderers, the builder of the first railroad in north Mississippi, the founding president of a bank, an FBI agent, four pilots (all brothers) and a Nobel Prize winner. She also reveals wonderfully entertaining and intimate stories and anecdotes about her family — in particular her uncle William, or “Pappy,” with whom she shared colorful, sometimes utterly frank, sometimes whimsical conversations and experiences. • “Ice” by Ice-T and Douglas Century is a memoir of gangster life and redemption — from South Central to Hollywood. Told in his own words, Ice is raw, uncensored, and unafraid to speak his mind. He tells it like it is about his orphan upbringing on the gang-infested streets of South Central Los Angeles; about his four-year stint in the U.S. Army’s famed “Tropic Lightning” outfit; about his successful career as a hustler and thief; the car crash that nearly killed him; and his fateful decision to turn away from a life of crime and forge his own path to international entertainment stardom. • “In the Blink of an Eye” by Michael Waltrip discusses Dale, Daytona and the day that changed everything.

Exchange student in murder case wants to take time in mulling how to tell story By Gene Johnson TheAssociated Press SEATTLE — Advised to “go dark” as she reconnects with family and freedom, Amanda Knox wants to take her time before deciding how to tell her story. There will be no shortage of offers, which were already coming in last week. The former American exchange student could get a book deal that easily reaches seven figures — and help pay back her family the money they spent to overturn her murder conviction in the death of her roommate in Italy. Speaking fees could earn her $50,000. Plus there are the movie rights. And with all the money comes the chance to counter the lingering suspicion of some people around the world that she might have had something to do with Meredith Kercher’s death. It was a sentiment expressed Wednesday by an Italian judge who voted to overturn her conviction. Her supporters, naturally, feel differently. “The importance of her telling her story is to give a picture of hope to people, but also to correct the misperceptions of her, the mischaracterizations of her, of who she is as a person,” said Dave Marriott, a publicist hired by the family in 2007. “For her to tell her story will help people understand what a wonderful young woman she is,” Marriott said. “She has a very heartfelt story to tell.” And that story so far has been fodder for the tabloids. In Europe, she was dubbed “Foxy Knoxy.” In the U.S., she became a cause celebre. In the countless hours of TV footage and hundreds of stories, there’s a lot of material that she will need to counter. Knox, 24, returned to her hometown of Seattle Tuesday, a

She had been in custody since 2007, when the couple and another man were accused of killing Kercher, her British roommate, as part of a bizarre sex game. Her conviction was overturned after an independent review discredited DNA evidence presented in her first trial. Despite that and what some saw as a far-fetched theory by prosecutors, suspicions remain in some quarters about how much she knew about the crime. Hundreds of young Italians jeered the acquittals outside the courtroom, yelling “Shame! Shame!” And on Wednesday night, one of judges who served on

the appeals court jury, Claudio Pratillo Hellmann, stressed on state TV that the acquittals “resulted from the truth that was created in the trial.” “But the real truth could be different,” he added. “They could also be responsible, but the proof isn’t there.” Questions remained about some of Knox’s behavior after her arrest. She reportedly turned cartwheels and did splits as she waited for police questioning. Investigators said she sat on Sollecito’s lap, making faces and kissing him. Knox confessed to having been at the apartment, covering her ears to drown out Kercher’s screams, and later changed her story to say she was at Sollecito’s apartment.

Waltrip couldn’t stop thinking about all the times he’s struggled to stay ahead — and the 462 NASCAR Cup races he’d competed in without a single win. He’s been a race car driver all his adult life, following in the footsteps of his brother Darrell, a three-time NASCAR champion. And his losing streak was getting more painful with every race. But this day, he knew could be different. He was driving for Dale Earnhardt now, racing as a team with his close friend and mentor. Yet as his car roared toward the finish line, ending that losing streak once and for all, Waltrip had no clue that the greatest triumph of his life would get mired in terrible tragedy. • “Born Wild” by Tony Fitzjohn is the extraordinary story of one man’s passion for Africa. Tony Fitzjohn, part missionary, part madman, has been called “one of the world’s most endangered creatures.” An internationally renowned field expert on African wildlife, he is best known for the 18 years he spent helping Born Free’s George Adamson return more than 40 leopards and lions — including the celebrated Christian — to the wild in central Kenya. A notoriously rowdy person given to scrapes with bandits, evil policeman, and wicked politicians, who has been shot at by poachers and chewed up by lions, Fitzjohn is also a wonderful raconteur. Shenanigans aside, he belongs to that rare species of humans who have sought refuge and meaning in a life truly dedicated to the restoration of the animal kingdom.

Vicksburg jeans-maker keeping it local Pants are designed, assembled in the United States By Danny Barrett Jr. Remember when your clothes were made in the USA? Kim and Steve Koppman do. The husband-and-wife duo who moved their Grand River Clothing jeans company to Eagle Lake from New Orleans a few years ago have taken the “Made in the USA” label to another level with a line of blue jeans patterned and assembled from waist to cuff in the U.S. “It’s a big step out because it’s expensive to do it,” Kim Koppman said during

New iPhone to tote better camera, processor By The Associated Press NEW YORK — Apple unveiled a new iPhone Tuesday, but it is not the iPhone 5 some were expecting. Instead, it’s a more modest upgrade, the iPhone 4S. Here are some facts to help you decide if it’s time to make the plunge. The unveiling came a day before the death of Apple co-creator Steve Jobs, 56, Wednesday. The phone will make its debut in stores Friday. • If you own an iPhone 4: The new phone will have a faster processor and a sharper, more responsive camera. Otherwise, it’s pretty much the same. It will come with improved software, but you’ll get that as a

Apple’s Phil Schiller talks about the iPhone at Apple headquarters in Cupertino, Calif. free update on your iPhone 4, too. As an iPhone 4 owner, you should consider the 4S only

if you absolutely must have the latest and greatest, or if your old phone is broken. Since the 4S is less than two

years old, your carrier will probably make you pay more than the $199 base price if you upgrade, because you haven’t “paid off” the subsidized price of your old phone yet. There’s speculation that the more significant iPhone 5 upgrade might be less than a year away, and it could add important new features that are worth waiting for. • If you own an older iPhone: Apple’s new software, iOS 5, will work on the iPhone 3GS, but not the original iPhone or 3G. Take the launch of the iPhone 4S as a good opportunity to upgrade to a faster, more responsive phone, with a sharper screen. The big cost of owning an iPhone isn’t in the purchase

price, it’s in your monthly service fees. Upgrading your phone every two years is a minor cost compared to paying your monthly bill over the same period. So take advantage of your carrier’s phone subsidy and let it treat you to a new iPhone. Because Apple charges about $600 for a phone that costs $199 in the store, it’s the phone company that eats most of the upfront cost of the phone. • If you don’t have a smartphone: iPhones are still the kings of the smartphone world, with unsurpassed access to high-quality applications. But they’re also expensive. That might not be immediately obvious in the cell phone store, where See Apple, Page B10.

She said the jeans will retail for about five times that amount at outlets away from Vicksburg. Orders should take about six to eight weeks. “It takes a while to get it going,” she said. “But we do one thing — and we really do it well. It’ll be a far superior product.”

land transfers The following commercial land transfer was recorded in the Chancery Clerk’s Office for the week ending Oct. 7, 2011:

sales tax revenue The City of Vicksburg receives 18.5 percent of all sales taxes collected by businesses in the city limits. Revenues to the city lag actu-

al sales tax collections by two months, that is, receipts for April reflect sales taxes collected on sales in February. Here are the latest monthly receipts:

July 2011.......................$615,497 Fiscal year 2010-11 to date... $5,987,831

July 2010.......................$608,681 2009-10 fiscal year to date..... $6,075,822

casino tax revenue Vicksburg’s five casinos pay a 3.2 percent revenue tax to the State of Mississippi that is divided — with 10 percent going to schools, 25 percent to Warren County and 65 percent to the city. A second revenue tax is a 0.8 percent share of the state’s 8.8 percent revenue

tax. It is split based on population proportions between Vicksburg and Warren County. Each casino is also required to pay $150 for each gaming device annually to the city. To date, two casinos have paid the gaming device fee. These are the latest receipts:

August 2011 City...................................$467,765 County............................$230,127 Schools..............................$60,686

County........................ $2,596,319 Schools...........................$704,905

Fiscal year 2010-11 to date City............................... $5,876,516 County........................ $2,443,377 Schools...........................$661,322 August 2010 City...................................$495,541 County............................$233,145 Schools..............................$63,364 Fiscal year 2009-10 to date City............................... $6,193,286

their $199 price tag (or, in the case of the iPhone 3GS, $0 price tag) looks comparable to many other phones. Carriers require contracts when selling iPhones at that price, and the available plans aren’t cheap, in part because you’ll need a data plan. In effect, you’ll be paying off that expensive phone over two years, through your monthly bill. If you want a smartphone for less, look at getting a handset that runs Google Inc.’s Android software from a no-contract carrier like Virgin Mobile, MetroPCS or Cricket. You’ll be paying $149 and up for the phone, but the monthly cost will be lower. The biggest weakness of Android phones is that there are fewer good third-party applications available for them, but you’ll get roughly 80 percent of the functionality of an iPhone for 50 percent of the cost. • If you’re a Sprint subscriber: If you’ve nursed a longing for an iPhone but

haven’t yet moved over to AT&T or Verizon, now’s your chance ... probably. Sprint hasn’t yet said what kind of plans will be available for the iPhone. It’s also not clear if Sprint will sell only the 4S or also the cheaper 4. But it’s a fair bet that Sprint will keep its unlimited data plans as a way to lure subscribers from Verizon and AT&T, which cap monthly data usage on smartphones. It’s worth noting that the iPhone won’t support “Sprint 4G,” which is what Sprint calls Clearwire Corp.’s highspeed data network. Sprint sells a number of other smartphones that can access this network for faster Web browsing, downloads and uploads, for no additional cost. On the other hand, the Sprint iPhone 4S will most likely be able to roam internationally, a very rare feature on Sprint smartphones. • If you’re an AT&T subscriber: The Big Orange was the first carrier to place

caps on the monthly data consumption of its iPhone subscribers, to keep them from overloading its network. The addition of Sprint to the stable of iPhone carriers will probably give you the option to jump ship and get an unlimited data plan, but Sprint hasn’t confirmed this yet. On the other hand, Sprint’s data speeds are lower than AT&T’s, and it doesn’t have the network of Wi-Fi hotspots that AT&T does. AT&T will still be the only U.S. carrier to sell the iPhone 3GS, a two-year old model. The price will be cut to nothing, from $49. But AT&T still won’t sell the phone for use on prepaid plans, which could yield substantial savings. • If you’re a Verizon subscriber: One thing that’s missing from the iPhone 4S is the ability to tap into Verizon’s latest high-speed data networks, which uses the so-called “LTE” technology. That feature might arrive in

the next iPhone, which presumably will be the iPhone 5. There’s speculation that we might not have to wait until next summer to see that model. Apple is usually conservative about adding new wireless technology to its phones, but Verizon has been selling LTE phones for half a year already.

Boo at Jackson Zoo will run two weekends

‘You need art to breathe,’ says artist, gallery owner It was art on parade. Or, more aptly said, art on the move. And it was a sight never before seen on the streets of Vicksburg, something that really did stop traffic as about 75 people bearing various works of art began moving contents of the Attic Gallery three blocks to a new location in a 19th century building at Washington and Grove. Leading the throng was the late Rev. David Christian, an Episcopal minister, and beside him was Lesley Silver, proprietor of the gallery. Crossing the street, they ascended to the second floor. It was the summer solstice, the longest and possibly the hottest day of the year. The next day, friends returned with pickups and moved everything. On Monday morning, Lesley Silver opened for business in the new location. That was 15 years ago when the Attic Gallery was 25. Now it’s 40, the oldest art gallery in Mississippi. It’s time for a celebration. •



There’s “a lot” of everything” in the building, Lesley said, but she never had a vision, never thought of owning a gallery. That changed in 1971 when she and husband Mike Silver were on a trip to California and wanted to buy a piece of art for friends back home. Lesley wanted “something that lasts, something that means something.” They found a shop that had the right feeling, and they were soon engrossed in conversation with the owner. They ended the evening as guests in her home, then at dinner. When she found that Mike ran a jewelry store and a bridal shop, the conversation turned to wedding gifts. Californians, she said, often gave money for art for brides rather than

Silver, friends to mark gallery’s 40th The Attic Gallery, Lesley Silver’s business at Washington and Grove streets, will mark its 40th anniversary Friday. A celebration will be from 7 to 9 p.m. Forty artists’ works will be on display at the home

of Silver and her husband, Daniel Boone, on the third floor of the gallery. The first floor houses the Highway 61 Coffeehouse; the second, the Attic Gallery. “To give a theme to the show,” Silver said, “ the artists were assigned a number

SCHC’s Classics in the Courtyard kicks off fourth year Friday By Terri Cowart Frazier The Southern Cultural Heritage Center’s fall outdoor concert series is back for a fourth year. The program kicks off Friday with Celtic folk music by Nick and Julia Blake and food by Southern Sisters Cafe. “It’s very laid back,” said Maggie Nasif, who attended

last year. “People sit at picnic tables or on blankets. There are young mothers with children and grandparents with grandchildren.” And the food is good, too, she said. “There is absolutely nothing I don’t like about it,” said attendee Dee Hyland. “I think it is a wonderful idea, and it’s so much fun to see people and listen to the music. There aren’t enough adjectives to

describe how much I enjoy going.” So far, 35 people have signed up for Friday’s concert, said SCHC executive director Annette Kirklin, at which “we will be making a big, surprise announcement.” Last year, attendance for all four concerts was around 800, she said. Participants may listen to the concerts for free, but lunch is $9.

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Long before the success of Fleetwood Mac, when band founder Mick Fleetwood was a kid in the U.K. learning how to play the drums, he dreamed of having his own restaurant. His parents entrusted the then 9-year-old with the stable of the old farmhouse they lived in, and young Fleetwood turned it into something of a children’s speakeasy that he called Club Keller. Instead of booze, he poured Coca-Cola. “I used to serve up Smith’s crisps and fish and chips and stuff for other children to come round,” the bearded rocker recalled during a recent interview, his eyes twinkling at the memory. “I had my radiogram and my drums in there and it was my world.” Now, 5 1/2 decades later, Fleetwood is creating a new world for himself and his music: He’s opening a restaurant in his adopted hometown of Lahaina on the Hawaiian island of Maui. Fleetwood’s on Front St. is set to open early next year, and its namesake sees it as the next professional chapter in his life: A place where he can indulge his taste for

Musician Mick Fleetwood

and exciting and fulfilling, because... if you keep focused, and it’s a corny thing, but if you visualize and visualize and visualize, a lot of stuff really does come to you.” Developing the restaurant is dominating Fleetwood’s time. He helped choose the site (a historic building dating back to 1916 — the year his mother was born), select the décor and create the menu, but he insists “it’s not a shrine to Mick Fleetwood.” “You’ll know that it’s my place but it will be very tastefully done,” the 64-year-old said. “It’s not a museum for Mick Fleetwood. This is a real working restaurant.” “All of this is a responsibility to do it properly, and selfishly a responsibility to something that’s very precious to me, which is everything I’ve done with Fleetwood Mac and my partners and the music,” he said. The restaurant has taken him away from music a bit, and he expects that to continue, but that’s fine with him: “Now I will have a place to play when I want to or need to.” Besides Fleetwood Mac, the musician has two other bands, the Mick Fleetwood Blues Band and Mick Fleetwood’s Island Rumours Band.

Besides Fleetwood Mac, the musician has two other bands, the Mick Fleetwood Blues Band and Mick Fleetwood’s Island Rumours Band. fine food and drink (including his own Mick Fleetwood Private Cellar wines), perform with his friends and run the whole show. He plans to showcase local musicians and artists and invite the occasional famous rock star. The new establishment is essentially a

large-scale, souped-up version of his old Club Keller. “I’ve always wanted to do this,” Fleetwood said on a visit to his manager’s office in Beverly Hills. “I’m like one of those weird Chinese creatures where you see something 30 years ahead. It’s petrifying

Tupelo singer Wood to release new album TUPELO (AP) — Jake Wood’s music is uplifting, and he should know. All of his songs were written to get him out of his own slump. “I wrote (the songs) at a very low point in my life. I was really lost,” he said. “The phrase someday soon kept popping into my mind. Someday soon, everything’s gonna

be all right. It’s all I would do to make myself feel better.” “Someday Soon” came out of those feelings, and soon came the other songs that would make up his debut album, Live Life. Wood, 25, from Tupelo, has released an EP and spent the past several years performing in the area, but he said Live

Life feels like the true start of his music career. “It’s exciting. It’s me, it’s Jake Wood. Every artist has a beginning, and for me, this is it,” he said. Wood ‘s influences are singer-songwriters like Neil Young, Tom Petty and Bob Seger, but he also loves punk bands like The Clash. His

music is more acoustic singersongwriter than punk, but if he is punk, he’s the happiest punk on the planet. “I really like the old Latin phrase, Carpe diem, seize the day,” he said, and he found his album title in that.

Her mother was very good, Lesley said, “so I avoided art as much as I could,” but in college she decided to tackle Art 101. She had a terrible instructor who “put his chin into his palm and stared out the window, put on some music and left the room.” He did set up some still-lifes and when she took a painting home her grandfather took one look and said, “It’s terrible.” And he was right, she said. Then she tried again, taking a class from Malcolm Norwood, an excellent instructor who later chaired the department at Delta State. She didn’t continue her studies because she got married. Lesley reconnected with art in 1978 when she was given a camera, an item she loved and took everywhere. “It was my entry into art,” she said of the 35 mm. “It became a part of me. You use a camera to see things and to give people a gift of seeing what you’re seeing.” A real break in the learning process came in 1984 when she went to Penland School in North Carolina, and she said, “It changed me. It altered the way I looked at photography.” She saw photography in a different light, often as others viewed things, and she spent a lot of time in the darkroom experimenting, “not knowing that other people way ahead of you have done it in a superb and successful manner.” She began playing with photogra-

phy, hand-coloring it, blocking out areas with rubber cement, spray-painting. “If you don’t have an art background,” she said, “you’re given permission to do anything because you don’t know what is right and what is wrong. She loved mixed media, and her work always told stories — “little microcosms of life.” She printed a lot because, “Who would want to sleep when you have a dark room?” She doesn’t do colorful things, she said. “I’m pretty drab, but I like to punch things up with colors. Now that I’m older I’m allowed to start liking red some, but I wasn’t a red fan when I was younger. I found out that I’m not a blue person. I tend to gravitate toward the drab, the olive greens.... I’m always telling stories and letting my art lead me. It might start with something, and I think I’m going some place, but it may lead somewhere else.” She doesn’t do light or flowers and finds people the most difficult. If you wait until the mood strikes you before you start painting, Lesley said, “You’re copping out. Life is so limited,” so one should utilize each moment. She isn’t one to judge another’s art, and the gallery provides a place for artists to display their works and also a place for the public to buy original, local art. The clientele isn’t just local — they come from as far away as Seattle. The Attic Gallery has

been featured in publications from as distant as The Netherlands, Germany and Japan. • By actual count or in a ballpark guess, how many artists does Lesley think have been featured in the gallery? “How about neither?” she said. “I haven’t a clue. I never refuse to look at people’s art. We are accessible. I will show it and promote it if I possibly can.” She especially enjoys connecting with young artists and giving them an opportunity to really look at art. She’s won honors for her art including Best in Show and has been invited to show in several very selective juried events, but her special shows have been a mother-daughter one in Biloxi and then one with her daughter and her mother. There have been many theme shows at the Attic Gallery, but an upcoming event is the first since she and hus-

band Daniel Boone moved into the top floor of the building. Forty artists have been invited to exhibit one painting eachm and the public is invited. For Lesley Silver, “Art is something that makes me feel. It activates the emotions....It just changes me.” • There’s a large octagonal table in the Attic Gallery on which some art is displayed but also where friends sit and visit, enjoying conversation and coffee. The table came from the original gallery where it served the same purpose, helping to provide a comforting, nurturing atmosphere. The move wasn’t just a physical one, for the spirit of the Attic Gallery continues. •

Continued from Page C1. silver or china. If the Silvers were ever interested in something like that, just let her know. A question provoked some thought: Where was the nearest art gallery to Vicksburg? In New Orleans. On the way home from the Jackson airport, Mike had the idea of sending the lady $500 and she would send them selections of art to sell. “Sounds great to me,” Lesley concurred. On June 8, 1971, while she was having a birthday party for her 5-year-old, a box filled with art arrived. Mothers of the children at the party were excited. Most items sold for $25, the most expensive being $40, and to Lesley it was amazing “because I was making 20 percent off of $15.” They placed a second order, putting the items in their house, “but what eventually happened was we got too much stuff for our living room. We ran out of chairs, out of floor space, and one day Mike said, ‘Whv don’t you go to Versil’s (a gift and bridal shop) and up those stairs that nobody ever went up.” With flashlight in hand, she explored the cluttered second floor. Friends came to her aid, cleaning and fixing it, and the gallery she never thought of “just happened. It was a natural,” and so was the name. The Attic Gallery opened on Oct. 6, 1971. Good things she didn’t plan or never thought of seem to happen to Lesley. That’s how she got to Vicksburg. She was a college student at the University of Alabama when she met and married Mike Silver who promised, “We’ll never live in Vicksburg. So I married him.” And with a smile, she added, “Now you notice Mike isn’t here, but I am,” as they divorced years ago. Why they came here has been pretty much a secret until now. Mike’s father owned a jewelry store, and in October 1963 his help quit — just before the Christmas season. Mike’s mother called: Could he come home for a while to help his dad? And, by the way, Mr. Silver was never, never to know the

behind-the-scenes maneuvering. And he never did. So they came to Vicksburg. The months passed. Christmas was over — “Had been for a while. I guess you sort of fall into a rhythm of living,” so they built a house in Marion Park and in later years moved into one on Cherry Street. Lesley was born in New York and lived there as a child, then at age 6 “my parents put me in the car and drove south. That’s how we ended up in Birmingham.” They moved so her father could help his father “who was opening a furrier business in the South. I think you know the end of that story.” Her mother was a working artist, her aunt a sculptor and her grandfather painted. You don’t have to get into DNA to see why Lesley believes, “You’ re born with some of the love of art...I think there’s a propensity or something that ends up in you and maybe goes down into your very being, because I feel you need art to breathe.” She also believes that, if one exposes himself to art and the variety of art, that understanding and desire can be developed, can be changed, can be expanded beyond a narrow view. When Lesley was about 8 or 9, her mother, Klara Koock, set up a still life and supplied some oil paints because “they were the thing. I think I was born before acrylics were invented.” Lesley remembers that the still life included bananas and, “as the days progressed, so did the bananas. I remember that distinctly. They got to the pudding stage.” She sat and looked out the window at other children playing and yearned to go out, but “Mother told me I had to finish this because you know you start and you end something. I haven’t learned that yet. I start and I start and I restart....” She did finish the painting, but claims “I was a disaster with oils.” After that, she turned to pencil drawings in the privacy of her room, never showing them to anyone.

The Vicksburg Post


Focus on the future

Snapshot of an icon’s fall is seen in Kodak’s financial troubles ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) — Buffeted by fierce foreign competition, then blindsided by a digital revolution, photography icon Eastman Kodak Co. is teetering on a financial precipice after a quarter-century of failed efforts to find its focus. The 131-year-old company that turned picture-taking into a hobby for the masses and became singularly synonymous with capturing memories has tried to bat down sudden talk of bankruptcy. But concern about its grim prospects has hit fever pitch after it enlisted a legal adviser to explore ways to revive its sagging fortunes. The collapse of such a legendary brand would not only reverberate through American business, but would also have a profound cultural effect on generations worldwide who took their first snapshots with film cameras bearing the unmistakable yellow-and-red K logo. “You could look up and see that yellow sign all over the world — no matter where you went, people depended on that for their memory-recording,” said photography writer John Larish, who worked for Kodak in the 1980s as a senior marketintelligence analyst. “With the advent of digital or even cell-phone cameras, Kodak wasn’t in the game,” he said. “I see the company now as something we will write about in history books.” Already jittery shareholders were rattled Sept. 30 when word leaked out that Kodak has hired Jones Day, a law firm that dispenses advice on bankruptcies and other restructuring options. Its stock, which topped $94 in 1997, skidded to an alltime low of 78 cents a share. After markets closed, Kodak insisted in a statement that it had no intention of filing for bankruptcy protection and described Jones Day as one of several advisers helping its management close out a stumbling, decade-long drive to

printed on a Kodak inkjet photo printer at Eastman Kodak Co., in Rochester, N.Y.

Eastman Kodak Co. founder George Eastman, left, and Thomas Edison with their inventions in a photograph taken in the late 1920s recast itself as a digital photography and printing powerhouse. Its stock rebounded this week to $1.12. But investor alarm about whether it has the financial wherewithal to complete its turnaround is raising the seemingly inescapable specter of job cuts — and the threat of extinc-

tion. Kodak has already sliced its global payroll to 18,800 from a peak of 145,300 in 1988, and its hometown rolls to 7,100 from 60,400 in 1982. Employees say they’re even more scared than usual that the latest crisis could sink careers that somehow dodged decades of cutbacks. Chemist Kenny Baptiste says

The collapse of such a legendary brand would not only reverberate through American business, but would also have a profound cultural effect on generations worldwide who took their first snapshots with film cameras bearing the unmistakable yellow-andred K logo. something other than talent and hard work has kept him in his job for 19 years. “I call it luck — I’m not going to sugar-coat it at all,” said Baptiste, 43, who joined Kodak’s research division out of college and has two young children. “I always say, I don’t believe I’m better than some of the people that have gone.”

Along with a rich portfolio of 11,000 patents, “we have some very innovative product ideas in the pipeline,” Baptiste said. “It’s not fair to think of us as finished. I don’t think we’re down for the count, I really don’t.” The transition to a world without film occurred at lightning speed, and Kodak is still playing catch-up in securing a firm foothold in the amorphous realm of electronic media. “It’s shocking how quickly Kodak has gone to no longer being a (familiar) name in nearly every household in Western culture,” said Robert Burley, a photography professor at Ryerson University in Toronto. While Kodak invented the world’s first digital camera in 1975, a reluctance to ease its heavy reliance on high-profit film allowed Japanese rivals like Canon and Sony to rush largely unhindered into the fast-emerging digital arena in the late 1990s. Finally launching a fouryear digital makeover in 2004 — the year it got ejected from the 30-stock Dow Jones club — Kodak closed aged factories, chopped and changed busi-

nesses and eliminated tens of thousands of jobs. It closed 2007 on a high note with net income of $676 million, then ran smack into the recession. Kodak’s meteoric rise to bluechip status in the 20th century was emblematic of what American business is capable of, but technological innovation doesn’t “stand still,” said Mark Zupan, dean of the University of Rochester’s Simon Graduate School of Business Administration. “Of the companies in the original Dow Jones index 100, only one survives — General Electric,” Zupan said. “With the challenges companies face, it’s incredibly hard to sustain being at the top of the world. We’ve seen Hewlett-Packard go through this, IBM was on the point of death for a while, Goodyear was near Chapter 11 and turned around, but it doesn’t always work out.” Rochester was a prosperous shoe, clothing and horticulture hub of 90,000 back in 1880 when George Eastman, engrossed in an arcane art called photography, quit his bank clerk job to perfect a set of home experiments that rapidly transformed a hobby into a mass commodity. In place of heavy glass plates, Eastman devised a flexible cellulose film that he sold preloaded in box cameras. He made up the name Kodak because he liked the letter K — “strong and incisive.” Framed in yellow, it became one of the most recognizable brand names on earth. In 1900, Eastman came out with a $1 Brownie, turning point-and-shoot photography into an overnight craze. By 1927, Kodak held a virtual monopoly of the U.S. photographic industry. And in the 1960s, its easyload Instamatic 126 became one of most popular cameras ever, practically replacing old box cameras.

Browned Butter

Everyone knows butter can burn easily, but getting it one step before burned—to just browned—brings out a nutty flavor that’s perfect for hearty fall foods. Here’s how: Melt butter in a light-colored skillet so you can gauge the color. Swirl 4 minutes or until butter smells nutty and is golden brown. Toss with pasta, winter squash or vegetables, use in our cornbread recipe on page 24, or in our Browned Butter White Chocolate Blondies at 3

Sweet As Molasses Molasses may be “slower in January,” but the fall makes us crave this thick, intensely flavored syrup. Think beyond molasses cookies—this pantry staple brings a dose of sweetness and a hint of warmth to lots of dishes, from barbecue sauce to gingerbread to baked beans. Molasses is derived from sugar cane juice. The first boiling makes a light syrup that’s perfect for pouring over pancakes and waffles—or with the addition of live yeast and a little age—for making rum. But it’s the second boiling we love—a darker, thicker, slightly less sweet syrup with a signature flavor that’s ideal for baked goods, glazes and marinades.

Lemon-Dijon Glaze

Molasses Cream Pie

Brush pork, chicken or lamb with a mixture of lemon juice, molasses, Dijon mustard and garlic.

For a quick-and-easy dessert, whisk 2 tablespoons molasses with 1/2 cup canned pumpkin pie filling and a pint of softened vanilla bean ice cream or frozen yogurt. Spoon into a cookie or graham-cracker pie crust (gingerbread would be especially tasty), refreeze and serve garnished with whipped cream and warm caramel sauce.

Molasses-Soy Marinade Combine molasses, soy sauce, garlic, ginger and a drizzle of sesame oil for a marinade for pork and salmon.

Wicked Good Dinner

Orange and Black Olive Salad

cup extra-virgin olive oil garlic cloves, lightly smashed (1 x 3-inch) strips orange rind, sliced lengthwise into thin julienned strips sprigs fresh thyme cup pitted kalamata or canned black olives large or 8 small navel oranges teaspoon salt Freshly ground black pepper

1. Combine olive oil, garlic, orange rind and thyme in a small bowl. Add olives, toss gently to combine, and set aside, covered, overnight. 2. Cut the peel and pith from oranges, and slice into ¼-inch rounds. Arrange slices on a serving platter, and spoon olives and dressing over the top. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Serves 8.

hether this year’s brood includes a mermaid, a monster or The Monopoly Man (my little guy), one thing’s for certain: Everyone needs to eat. And a wicked good dinner will make you a hero—superman, maybe? Fire-roasted tomatoes add depth and smoke to a steaming cauldron of chili. Make it ahead and refrigerate for up to three days, or freeze for up to a month, then warm it gently and serve it up (in a hollowed-out pumpkin, if the spirit moves you) with an array of toppings. Break out your cast-iron skillet for a luscious sour cream cornbread to serve alongside. It, too, can be made ahead and frozen, then thawed and warmed in the oven—you can even slide it back into the skillet for serving. And marinated black olives work their black magic overnight, making speedy work of a salad with MENU: fresh oranges, its Orange and Black Olive Salad jolt of bright flavor as welcome as its Beef and Black Bean Chili pitch perfect color. Brown Butter and Sour Cream Dessert on Cornbread Halloween should be a felony, but Caramel-Peanut Sundaes since it isn’t, go for a make-ahead caramel sauce that turns ice cream into what just might be the treat of the day. Top each serving with a shower of salted peanuts, or grab a fistful of the Butterfingers you have waiting by the front door, let the kids smash them with their light sabers, and sprinkle those over the top. Happy Halloween.

y sister, Joanne Gusweiler, is a pastry chef, and like a lot of chefs, she can be a bit temperamental. She once owned a bakery called CocoLuxe in Peapack, N.J. It wasn’t an American bakery, but more a French patisserie where she made chocolates, croissants from scratch, tortes and cookies. She use to rant about customers requesting “white” cake—“don’t they know that white is not a flavor?” She eventually sold CocoLuxe, but not before she perfected her Coca-Cola® Cake. She had lived in Atlanta for a short time and had fallen in love with the rich chocolate cake that calls for the city’s famous soda. Marshmallows and soda pop may seem like odd ingredients for a pastry chef to use, but in the South, they’re the real thing. —Jill Melton

1. Preheat oven to 325F. 2. To prepare cake, melt butter in saucepan. Add marshmallows; stir

until melted. Add chocolate; stir over low heat until melted. Add CocaCola, then set aside to cool for 10 minutes. 3. Sift flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

salad is a must for the hearty soups, stews and chilis the fall brings. And who doesn’t like a good Caesar? What passes today for Caesar Salad, though, bears little resemblance to what Chef Caesar Cardini created at his small hotel in Tijuana in 1924. He never mixed the dressing ahead of time, and nothing was measured, so the salad took on the qualities of a spontaneous work of art. Garlicky olive oil, lemon juice, eggs and Parmesan cheese were, and still are, the basis of a good Caesar Salad. No anchovies, you ask? Caesar never added anchovies to the salad—only a bit of Worcestershire sauce, which contains a small amount of those salty little fish. By Greg Patent, a food writer in Missoula, Mont.

Salad bars aside, how do you use kale? Let us know at

KING KALE Get to know this cheap, nutritious and versatile green.


hen I worked in catering during college, kale was the curly stuff we used to garnish trays of Jell-O and cheese. No one ever really thought of eating it. But today we love kale for its toothsome bite and because it stands up to heat much better than its more delicate cousins, spinach or arugula. This makes kale an excellent choice for cooking, but not so much for eating raw in salads. But a long bake in a hearty pasta dish or a slow simmer in a pot of soup? For these iterations, kale is perfect. Recently, on a chilly overcast day, I found myself craving something warm and comforting. With wild rice in the pantry and kale in the crisper, I had the beginnings of our Wild Rice Chowder. I love the kale in this creamy chowder—it’s a chewy match for the rice. A friend came over, I toasted some Irish soda bread and roasted some cauliflower, and we had dinner. —Jill Melton

Creamy Fresh Greens Pasta Bake With some fresh spinach and kale from the farmers’ market, this pasta bake stars a creamy béchamel sauce, pasta and cheese. Delicious. It would be great with ham for dinner.

health FOOD

Kale is one of the healthiest foods you can add to your diet. It’s an excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin C and potassium. It’s also high in calcium, iron, folate and phytochemicals.

Wild Rice Chowder with Greens We like kale in this soup because it’s hearty and chewy and stands up to the firm textured wild rice, but you can use any kind of green— especially collard, mustard or turnip greens. Whole milk is the perfect addition here. Combining it with flour stabilizes it and thickens the soup. This is a great main-dish soup. Just add bread and a salad. 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 2 ounces country ham, chopped 1 onion, chopped

This Story Could Change Your Life! This family has discovered something so amazing it has benefitted tens of thousands of peoples’ lives! A SHARED PASSION! Almost 30 years ago, as a young boy, I watched my Mom, Madeline Balletta, struggle with her energy level, as she tried to keep up with the demands of a busy life. It was hard for me and my sister Lori, because we wanted a mom like everyone else had, fun and energetic! Slowly but surely, she began acting more like her old self, with renewed energy and vitality. Lori and I were so excited and had no idea what was making this change in her, but we didn’t care. All we knew was that our Mom was fun again. Years later, Mom told us that she had been taking a natural substance from the beehive called Royal Jelly, and it was a new awakening for her. She began to feel renewed energy and vitality like never before! That’s when she began to learn about the importance of a healthy diet and good nutrition…and became our greatest teacher.

Today, as President of BeeAlive, the company my Mom started over 25 years ago, I work every day to help people feel their absolute best. And thank God Mom taught me what she did. I now have a wife and baby triplets, who keep us busy “round the clock”. Boy, do we need to be energetic and healthy! If we didn’t have Royal Jelly, I don’t know what we would do. I don’t miss a beat, running BeeAlive and being the Dad to triplets! My wife, Rose, feels great! She is able to do it all and continue to run her own business, thanks to Royal Jelly! WHAT IS ROYAL JELLY? Found in nature, Royal Jelly is one of God’s most precious substances. It’s not honey or pollen, but the exclusive food of the Queen Bee. On a Royal Jelly diet, she lives about six years, while worker bees, eating only honey and pollen, live about six weeks! The only difference between the two is the Queen’s Royal Jelly diet. This rare and nutritious substance is precious and can only be found in nature.

NEED MORE ENERGY? Whether you’re a grandmother, like Madeline, wanting to keep up with your grandkids, a dad, like Jason, trying to burn the candle at both ends, or a mom, like Rose, trying to survive the challenges of a new baby or a career, BeeAlive Royal Jelly is the answer. It’s been helping people feel more energetic for over 25 years.

Tennessee’s Pride See why city slickers are clamoring for this old-fashioned country ham. k For 10 ways to cook with country ham, go to relish. com/countryham.

HamBob’s Angel Biscuits One of The Hamery’s most popular items is ham biscuits—bite-sized Southern angel biscuits filled with cooked shaved ham. To cut the biscuits, Bob uses a “rigged up muffler tailpipe” (from the car parts store across the street), which he says is the perfect size.

Bob “HamBob” Woods


e’re out of ham this year. Call back next year.” This was the nonchalant recording you’d get from Bob “HamBob” Woods, owner of The Hamery, just a couple years ago when you called to order a holiday ham. The Hamery was started in 1969 in Murfreesboro, Tenn., by Bob’s uncle, veterinarian Sam Woods or “Little Doc” as he was known, and his cousin, Tom Givan. They missed the rich, salty flavor of county ham from the old days—when “Old Doc,” Sam’s father, cured his own hams. Ten years later, The Hamery was passed on to Old Doc’s grandson Bob, who still cures ham according to Old Doc’s 68-year-old recipe that hangs on the wall (along with blue ribbons from the Tennessee State Fair). Bob salts and sugars the hams and cools them in January. By mid-February they’re washed and hung in nets to dry. A few weeks later, the hams are moved to the smoking room, where they hang over a smoldering fire of apple and hickory woods until late October. Although The Hamery cures and smokes the old-fashioned way, Bob has recently gotten with the times. Due in part to the To order HamBob’s country efforts of Jaymie Perry, the CEO (or “head ham, go to or ham,” as Bob calls her), The Hamery now call (615) 893-9712. ships hams to chefs across the country and has bumped up production. The company even makes “Tennshootoe,” Bob’s Tennessee version of the paper-thin sliced Italian ham, prosciutto.

cup buttermilk teaspoon baking soda tablespoon (or 1 envelope) active dry yeast tablespoon sugar teaspoon salt cup warm water (100F-110F) to 3 ¼ cups all-purpose flour cup shortening

EDITORS’ NOTE: Angel biscuits are a cross between a biscuit and a yeast roll. It’s said that they’re easier to make than traditional biscuits and more foolproof due to the two types of leavening: baking soda and yeast. HamBob makes his Ham Biscuits bite-sized. If you want bigger biscuits, roll them out 1/2-inch-thick, as we did to the left. Placing them close together on the baking sheet makes them rise more.

Taste of Brazil Born in a poor mining village in Brazil, Rosalia Monroe worked for a slice of the American dream and serves it up daily at her Brazilian café in Little Rock.


t Bossa Nova, an easygoing Brazilian café improbably located in Little Rock, Ark., everything is good. But, as my friend Louise says, “I love the black beans so much it’s hard for me to order anything else.” Although feijoada, Brazil’s most famous dish, is typically ultra-meaty (“In Brazil, we put everything in but the squeal,” says owner Rosalia), we usually end up ordering the vegetarian arroz con feijao (rice with beans), perfected by an herbal slaw-salsa of tomato, onions and cucumber (Vinagrete), with a sprightly collard green salad, and, on the side, devilish little red malagueta peppers in oil. You can find trim and chic Rosalia at the front of the cafe, but she is happiest in the kitchen, where, in apron and hairnet, she works side by side with the mostly Latino personnel. Bossa Nova hums along tri-lingually: in English, Spanish and her native Portuguese. Story by Crescent Dragonwagon, a food writer in Saxton’s River, Vt.

To serve: Salad greens, spinach, spring mix, or 8 whole romaine lettuce leaves 1 ripe avocado, peeled and coarsely chopped 1. To prepare vinaigrette, combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Whisk well. 2. To prepare salad, combining all ingredients in a medium bowl. Pour vinaigrette over top and toss well. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour. 3. To serve, place greens on 8 individual salad plates. Spoon heart of palm mixture on top. (If using romaine, place a spoonful of salad at the end of each leaf and serve one leaf per person.) Garnish with avocado. Serves 8. Per serving: 210 calories, 14g fat, 0mg chol., 5g prot., 20g carbs., 8g fiber, 660mg sodium.

pound dried black beans, picked over and well-rinsed bay leaves cup olive oil large yellow onion, finely chopped cup chopped garlic green onions, finely chopped cup chopped cilantro teaspoons sea salt teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Chef Robert Snortland and owner Rosalia Monroe

Marinated Hearts of Palm Vinaigrette: ⅓ cup extra-virgin olive oil Finely grated rind of 1 lemon, 1 lime and 1 orange Juice of 1 lemon, 1 lime and 1 orange ½ teaspoon coarse salt Freshly ground black pepper Salad: 2 (14-ounce) cans hearts of palm, rinsed, drained, blotted dry, and sliced into ⅓-inch-thick rings 2 green onions, cut into ¼-inch slices 4 celery stalks, cut into ¼-inch slices 1 orange, sectioned and diced 1 grapefruit, sectioned and chopped 3 tablespoons diced pimiento-stuffed green olives

1. Place beans in a slow cooker set on high. Add boiling water to cover beans by at least 3 or 4 inches, and add bay leaves. Cook, covered, about 1 hour and 15 minutes, then reduce heat to low. Cook, covered, until beans are very soft, about 2 hours, stirring occasionally and adding more water if needed. Reserve both cooked beans and their liquid in the slow cooker.

EdenPURE ranked #1 in North America ®

Save $192 - biggest savings ever Never be cold again

How it works:

Bob Vila, America’s Favorite Home Improvement Expert, Canton, Ohio

I know why millions of Americans are saving on their heating bills with the EdenPURE ® Infrared Portable Heater. And now you can save up to $192, our lowest prices ever on the new 2012 EdenPURE ® Personal Heater, the finest portable heater in the world. For over 30 years as your home improvement television host, I have reviewed and experienced thousands of products. I have an EdenPURE ® in my Massachusetts home and found it to be a very safe and reliable source of portable heat. This is one of those few comfort investments I can recommend for your home that will truly pay dividends. We all know heating costs are expected to remain at record levels. The cost of heating our homes will continue to be a significant burden on the family budget. The EdenPURE® can cut your heating bills, pay for itself in a matter of weeks, and then start putting a great deal of extra money in your pocket after that. With over one million satisfied customers around the world, the new EdenPURE ® heats better, faster, saves more on heating bills, and runs almost silent. A major cause of residential fires in the United States is portable heaters. The choice of fire and safety professionals everywhere, the EdenPURE® has no exposed heating elements that can cause a fire. The outside of the EdenPURE® only gets warm to the touch so that it will not burn children or pets. And your pet may be just like my dog who has reserved a favorite spot near the EdenPURE®. Accept no imitations. The EdenPURE® can also help you feel better. Unlike EdenPURE® imitators, it will not reduce humidity or oxygen in the room. These imitators use ce-

Heats floor to the same temperature as ceiling.


1. Electricity ignites powerful SYLVANIA infrared lamps. 2. The quartz infrared lamp gently warms the patented copper heating chambers.

3. The soft heat “rides” the humidity in the room and provides even, moist, soft heat ceiling to floor and wall to wall without reducing oxygen and humidity.

ramic plates instead of our patented copper. Cheap ceramic plates reduce humidity, dry out your sinuses and make your skin dry. With other heating sources, you'll notice that you get sleepy when the heat comes on because they are burning up oxygen. The advanced space-age EdenPURE ® also heats the room evenly, wall to wall and floor to ceiling. Other heating sources heat rooms unevenly with most of the heat concentrated high and to the center of the room. And as you know, portable heaters only heat an area a few feet around the heater. With the EdenPURE®, the temperature will not vary in any part of the room. How can a person cut their heating bill with the EdenPURE®? First, the EdenPURE® uses less energy to create heat than many other sources, but that is just part of why it will cut a person’s heating bill. The EdenPURE® will heat a room in minutes. You will immediately notice the difference! Therefore, you can turn the heat down in your

house to as low as 50 degrees, but the room you are occupying, which has the EdenPURE ® , will be warm and comfortable. Your EdenPURE ® easily moves from room to room. Using zone heating keeps you comfortable and reduces your heating bills. This can drasti-

cally cut heating bills; in some instances, the savings may be substantial. The EdenPURE® will pay for itself in weeks. It will keep a great deal of extra money in a user’s pocket. Because of today’s spiraling gas, oil, propane, and other energy costs, the EdenPURE® will provide even greater savings as time goes by. The EdenPURE® Personal Heater comes with a comprehensive three year warranty and a 60-day, no questions asked, satisfaction guarantee – EdenPURE® will even pay for

the return shipping. There is absolutely no risk. And EdenPURE ® is the only portable heater with a National Service Network. How to order: During this special 10 day offer we can deliver to your home our Personal Heater which comfortably covers an area up to 350 square feet. During our special, you are eligible for a $175 DISCOUNT PLUS FREE SHIPPING AND HANDLING FOR A TOTAL SAVINGS OF UP TO $192 on the EdenPURE ® Personal Heater. Our largest

In 1933, to celebrate the repeal of Prohibition, August A. Busch Jr. presented a very special gift to his father: a turn-of-the-century beer wagon hitched to a magnificent team of Clydesdales. Since then, the horses have come to symbolize the longstanding traditions of a true American original: Budweiser®. Now a classic eight-horse hitch steps lively once more, filling the nearly two-foot long expanse of a first-ever stained-glass panorama that lights from within at the touch of a switch, and features a sculpted, classic Budweiser® bow-tie logo on the front.

Your character is pretty rebellious. Were you like that growing up? I didn’t do the things she does, but I would wear short shorts and show off my midriff, which was big at the time.

while, Hugh Jackman gets the urge to make use of his college journalism courses. “Each time I’m at the Today show, I ask Matt Lauer, ‘When are you hanging it up? When do I start?’ ” he says with a laugh. “And I know Regis Philbin is leaving, so next time I’m on that show, they may never get me out of the chair.” For now, though, the 42-yearold actor—currently starring in the robotboxing movie Real Steel— tells Mary Margaret he’s sticking with his day job.

he other night as i was getting

ready for bed, I turned off my phone and put it on the dresser. My 17-year-old daughter stared at me in disbelief. “But, Mom,” she exclaimed, “it’s so far away!” For today’s youth, technology isn’t just a handy way to keep in touch or organize your calendar; it’s as integral as eating and breathing—and seems to come just as naturally. Between smartphones, iPods, video games, and the Internet, being wired is a way of life. The average teen sends more than 50 texts a day; younger children spend over 10 hours a week playing video games; and the amount of time all kids spend online daily has tripled in the past 10 years. We are just beginning to assess how this nonstop connectivity is affecting our kids’ social and intellectual development. It is increasingly clear that it’s changing the nature of children’s relationships to each other, to their families, and to the world around them. The latest research suggests it may even be rewiring their brains. In a world where sexting is on the nightly news, plagiarism is just a Wikipedia click away, and people have hundreds of online friends

they’ve never met, helping your kids make smart choices has never been more crucial. But there are few rules of the road, as any parent who has watched his or her child fall down the Facebook hole for hours can tell you. In part this is because technology is changing so rapidly that it can be hard to keep up. Just a few years ago, a 10-year-old with a cell phone could do little with it beyond placing a call. Now, handing her one is giving her the ability to text, go online, and send and receive photos. Are kids ready for that? Are you? The notion that parents need to get involved in their children’s digital lives as actively as they do in academic or sports activities is still new. “The digital landscape is a positive place for kids,” says Dr. Gwenn O’Keeffe, lead author of the American Academy of Pediatrics 2011 report on the impact of social media on children, adolescents, WHAT KIND OF and families. “It promotes a lot INTERNET PARENT of healthy habits like socializaARE YOU? tion and a sense of connectedness to the greater world and to TAKE OUR QUIZ AT causes.” But, she says, children need guidance.

some of the thorniest issues and how parents can navigate them.

Do You Know How Many Facebook Friends Your Kids Have? Fifty-one percent of American teens log on to a social network site more than once a day, and 22 percent log on more than 10 times a day, according to a recent poll by Common Sense Media. You have to be 13 to join Facebook, but children should learn before then not to share personal information. “Pre-teenagers are very rule focused, so you can tell them, ‘Don’t do this,’ and they’re going to follow it,” Dr. O’Keeffe says. Unfortunately, even the smartest kids can forget what they’ve been taught when they enter their teen

years and the desire to be popular overcomes common sense. Facebook can be like a high school cafeteria on steroids. For some kids, it’s a positive experience, strengthening friendships and communication. Others, though, may feel left out, obsessively comparing themselves to peers and seeing the fun others are having—or at least posting about. Social media sites like Facebook, as well as texting, can also lead to cyber-bullying; it’s easier to target someone for abuse when you don’t have to face them. If your child is avoiding his phone or seems depressed after going online, these could be warning signs. In the notso-distant past, if your kid seemed lethargic, you might have asked if she had a stomachache. Now it also pays to inquire if anything upsetting happened recently online.

MB: I’ve got two daughters, 13 and 15, and this has been the bane of my existence. We had rules: no computer in the room; only a half hour a day online. They always ended up getting broken. We felt like terrible parents. I can’t tell you the Facebook pages I’ve found that have been a horror show. Now the doors have to be open and you have to be able to see the screen. We’re constantly popping in to see what’s going on. I will take my daughter’s computer and immediately look at the history, before she has time to do anything. And let’s just say it hasn’t always been perfect. JS: Are you getting push-back? MB: It’s the battle of our lifetime. JS: I’ve got two older boys, 23 and 20, and two younger children, an 8-year-old girl and a 3-yearold boy. I was a very permissive father with my older boys. My attitude with my younger children is that anytime they are in front of a computer or an iPhone, I am losing the war. I have become almost hyper in getting them outside kicking the soccer ball, riding a bike. We have a hard-and-fast rule: Don’t even think about bringing an iPod Touch or an iPad to the table. The more I teach my children

It is becoming an obsession with me. MB: My husband has taken the BlackBerry and thrown it out the window, or at least wanted to, a couple times.

older teens, it’s closer to two hours. If that sounds like an addiction, in some instances it may be. “When you get an unexpected text, the dopamine cells in the brain fire up,” says Dr. Nora Volkow, director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Dopamine, which plays a role in many addictive behaviors, is a neurotransmitter associated with feelings of pleasure. Sherry Turkle, director of MIT’s Initiative on Technology and Self and author of Alone Together, has spent years studying the psychological effects of this rampant texting on teens. “Kids have told me that they almost don’t know what they are feeling until they put it in a text.” One danger is that children may never learn how to be content spending time on their own, which is crucial for continued on page 12

fortunately, technology is short-circuiting our children’s imagination. Nobody does what I did in the summer in high school: just sit inside your room, live inside your mind, and create. MB: But you can’t shun technology. You can’t escape it. It’s part of our kids' curriculum, the way they communicate. You should learn how to chat, how to Facebook, how to text. You should know how to do everything that they know how to do on the computer so you can follow their tracks. JS: I will say this as a man that has been through this before. Here is the No. 1 rule: You can never back down. If you draw a line in the sand on technology and you back down one time, you’re going to be backing down every time. MB: You can tell he’s been dealing only with boys. He has a lot to learn. JS: I’m 6-foot-4, I’ve got a deep voice, and I’m not getting a lot of push-back.

An important correction from BONIVA for women with postmenopausal osteoporosis You may have seen an ad about BONIVA for the treatment and prevention of postmenopausal osteoporosis that may have given you the wrong impression. Our ads stated that “After one year on BONIVA, 9 out of 10 women stopped and reversed their bone loss.” The FDA has found that there is not enough evidence to support this statement and wants us to clear up any misunderstanding you may have had about these ads and make sure you have the correct information about BONIVA. BONIVA has not been proven to stop and reverse bone loss in 9 out of 10 women and is not a cure for postmenopausal osteoporosis. BONIVA has been shown to help increase bone mass and help reduce the chance of having a spinal fracture (break). We encourage all patients to discuss their treatment with their healthcare provider. Only your doctor can determine if BONIVA is right for you. What is BONIVA?

calcium, cannot sit or stand for at least 60 minutes, or are allergic to BONIVA or any of its ingredients. BONIVA can cause serious side effects including problems with the esophagus; low blood calcium; bone, joint, or muscle pain; severe jaw bone problems; and unusual thigh bone fractures. Before starting BONIVA, tell your doctor if you have problems with swallowing, stomach or digestive problems, have low blood calcium, plan to have dental surgery or teeth removed, or have kidney problems. Stop taking BONIVA and tell your doctor right away if you have pain or trouble swallowing, chest pain, or severe or continuing heartburn, as these may be signs of serious upper digestive problems. Call your doctor immediately if jaw problems or hip, groin, or thigh pain develops; or if you have symptoms of low blood calcium such as spasms, twitching, cramps in your muscles, or numbness or tingling in your fingers, toes, or around your mouth. Follow the dosing instructions for once-monthly BONIVA carefully. The most common side effects are back pain, heartburn, stomach area pain, pain in your arms and legs, diarrhea, headache, muscle pain, and flu-like symptoms.

BONIVA is a prescription medicine used to treat or prevent osteoporosis in women after menopause. BONIVA helps increase bone mass and helps reduce the chance of having a spinal fracture (break).

You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA at medwatch or by calling 1-800-FDA-1088.

It is not known how long BONIVA works for the treatment and prevention of osteoporosis. You should see your doctor regularly to determine if BONIVA is still right for you.

healthy psychological development. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Technology encourages this fantasy that adolescents grow up with that they will never have to be alone, that they will never have to separate from parents and peers. But if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t learn to be alone, you will only know how to be lonely.â&#x20AC;? Parents who constantly text their children compound the problem. Though kids treat their cell phones like appendages, getting them to talk on the phone can be nearly impossible. Experts worry that this fundamental change in how kids communicate is endangering the development of an important set of skills theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need later on: how to converse, read cues from vocal intonations, and even negotiate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big difference between an apology that involves looking in somebodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eyes and seeing that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hurt, and typing â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sorryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and hitting send,â&#x20AC;? Turkle points out. Parents need to insist that their children actually talk to them rather than just text. Turkle also favors setting up non-texting zones, including the kitchen and dining room. And, she advises: â&#x20AC;&#x153;No texting in the car on the way to school. That was always one of the most important times for parents to talk to children. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give it up.â&#x20AC;? The minute you hand a child a cell phone, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also opening up the entire online world to them, including sexting. Dr. Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Keeffe recommends that you talk about the dangers from day one. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel ready to have that conversation, hold off giving them a phone.

Less Than The Competition

video games, that little pleasure chemical dopamine also kicks in. The intermittent reinforcement that games provide—you win a little, you want to play more—is similar to gambling, and for some kids, just as addictive. Ninety-two percent of kids ages 8 to 18 play video games, and 8.5 percent can be classified as addicted, meaning their play interferes with the rest of their lives. According to Douglas Gentile of Iowa State University, lead author of a 2011 study on video game addiction, 12 percent of boys and 3 percent of girls who play will get addicted. Parents are right to worry about the violent content of some games, but they should be just as concerned about the amount of time kids spend playing even benign offerings. “Increased game play is related to poorer school performance as well as higher rates of obesity,” Gentile says. “For every hour children are spending on games, they are not doing homework, exercising, or exploring.” There is no clear-cut way to predict which kids will become hooked, but those who have poor impulse control or are socially awkward and have difficulty fitting in at school are at higher risk. Watch for these telltale signs of addiction: a drop in grades, a



change in sleep patterns, and increased anxiety. Gentile recommends that parents limit video game play to one hour per day and monitor the content. And you should pick out games with your kids rather than letting them choose their own. Though the ratings on video games may not tell you everything you need to know, they can help you make decisions about whether content is age-appropriate.

Should Teachers Use Twitter in the Classroom? There is near-universal agreement that schools must play a role in getting kids to be cybersmart, but teachers have struggled as much as parents to catch up. A 2011 survey by the National Cyber Security Alliance found that only 51 percent of K–12 teachers felt that their districts were doing an adequate job of preparing students for online safety, security, and ethics. Only 15 percent had taught lessons involving online hate speech, and just 26 percent had addressed cyber-bullying. Most teachers have little or no training in these areas. Still, a growing number are adapting their methods to better reach kids used to constant digital stimulation. “We find that you have to switch activity or delivery method continued on page 23

Q: Should I get a personal health record?

A personal health record (PHR) lets you store all of your medical information online; you may be able to set one up through your employer, your insurer, or an independent site like WebMD or HealthVault. From a medical standpoint, itโ€™s a good idea to have one, especially if you suffer from a complex condition. PHRs aggregate all of your health history, making critical information available to every doctor whoโ€™s treating you. Talk to your physician and your insurance company about whether they can feed your data into a PHR. To help avoid security breaches, choose a strong password, and donโ€™t share it with others. โ€”Dr. Glen Stream, president of the American Academy of Family Physicians


Fighting for Women How a breast ultrasound saved her life Two months after receiving a

normal mammogram result in 2003, Nancy M. Cappello was diagnosed with Stage 3c breast cancer after her physician detected an abnormality during a routine exam. Cappello was stunnedโ€”sheโ€™d had 11 years of clear screenings, yet her breast surgeon estimated that the cancer had been growing for four to five years. The surgeon said that it had likely been missed because she had dense breast tissue, which made tumors hard to detect. Cappello learned that while 40 percent of women have dense breasts, fewer than one in 10 are aware of it. For women with dense breast tissue, the risk of developing cancer is four to

six times greater, yet digital mammograms are only 60 percent accurate in detecting tumors in these patients. But โ€œwhen women with dense breasts supplement their yearly mammogram with an ultrasound, the combined





screenings detect cancer 97 percent of the time,โ€ says Cappello. โ€œI did everything I was told but had a coin toss chance of finding cancer.โ€ Determined to put the word out, Cappello launched a nonprofit, Are You DENSE (, to educate women about breast density. She and her husband, Joe, also worked to initiate state legislation requiring doctors to make sure patients are informed of their breast density risk. So far, laws have been passed in Connecticut and Texas, and at press time bills are pending in California and New York. A federal bill is in the draft phase. โ€œNancy is the first person to make this issue known,โ€ says Dr. Thomas Kolb, a New York radiologist who has pioneered research on breast density. โ€œThese women deserve to be told that they are at increased risk, and that they can do something about it.โ€ โ€”Dana Hudepohl

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT CRESTOR ® (ROSUVASTATIN CALCIUM) Please read this summary carefully and then ask your health care professional about CRESTOR. No advertisement can provide all the information needed to determine if a drug is right for you. This advertisement does not take the place of careful discussions with your health care professional. Only your health care professional has the training to help weigh the risks and benefits of a prescription drug.

WHAT IS CRESTOR? CRESTOR is a prescription medicine that belongs to a group of cholesterol-lowering medicines called statins. Along with diet, CRESTOR lowers “bad” cholesterol (LDL-C) and increases “good” cholesterol (HDL-C). If bad cholesterol levels are left untreated, fatty deposits (plaque) can build in the walls of the blood vessels. This plaque buildup, over time, can lead to narrowing of these vessels. This is one of the most common causes of heart disease. By lowering bad cholesterol in your blood, CRESTOR can slow this plaque buildup in the walls of blood vessels. CRESTOR has been proven to reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes in people without known heart disease, but who are at increased risk based on age (men 50 years and older, women 60 years and older), elevated blood levels of hsCRP (a marker of inflammation that can be associated with increased risk of cardiovascular events, such as heart attack and stroke), plus at least one additional risk factor (such as high blood pressure, low HDL “good” cholesterol, smoking, or family history of early heart disease).

WHAT IS CHOLESTEROL? Cholesterol is a fatty substance, also called a lipid, normally found in your bloodstream. Your body needs a certain amount of cholesterol to function properly. But high cholesterol can lead to health problems. LDL-C is called bad cholesterol because if you have too much in your bloodstream, it can become a danger to your health and can lead to potentially serious conditions. HDL-C is known as good cholesterol because it may help remove excess cholesterol. Common health factors such as diabetes, high blood pressure, smoking, obesity, family history of early heart disease, and age can make controlling your cholesterol even more important.

WHAT IS ATHEROSCLEROSIS? Atherosclerosis is the progressive buildup of plaque in the arteries over time. One major cause is high levels of LDL-C. Other health factors, such as family history, diabetes, high blood pressure, or if you smoke or are overweight, may also play a role in the formation of plaque in arteries. Often this plaque starts building up in arteries in early adulthood and gets worse over time.

HOW DOES CRESTOR WORK? Most of the cholesterol in your blood is made in the liver. CRESTOR works by reducing cholesterol in two ways: CRESTOR blocks an enzyme in the liver causing the liver to make less cholesterol, and CRESTOR increases the uptake and breakdown by the liver of cholesterol already in the blood.

WHO SHOULD NOT TAKE CRESTOR? Do not take CRESTOR if you ■ are pregnant or think you may be pregnant, or are planning to become pregnant. CRESTOR may harm your unborn baby. If you become pregnant, stop taking CRESTOR and call your health care professional right away ■ are breast-feeding.

■ have had an allergic reaction to CRESTOR or are allergic to any of its ingredients. The active ingredient is rosuvastatin calcium. The inactive ingredients are microcrystalline cellulose, lactose monohydrate, tribasic calcium phosphate, crospovidone, magnesium stearate, hypromellose, triacetin, titanium dioxide, yellow ferric oxide, and red ferric oxide The safety and effectiveness of CRESTOR have not been established in children under the age of 10.

HOW SHOULD I TAKE CRESTOR? ■ Take CRESTOR exactly as prescribed by your health care professional. Do not change your dose or stop CRESTOR without talking to your health care professional, even if you are feeling well ■ Your health care professional may do blood tests to check your cholesterol levels before and during your treatment with CRESTOR. Your dose of CRESTOR may be changed based on these blood test results ■ CRESTOR can be taken at any time of day, with or without food ■ Swallow the tablets whole ■ Your health care professional should start you on a cholesterol-lowering diet before giving you CRESTOR. Stay on this diet when you take CRESTOR ■ Wait at least 2 hours after taking CRESTOR to take an antacid that contains a combination of aluminum and magnesium hydroxide ■ If you miss a dose of CRESTOR, take it as soon as you remember. However, do not take 2 doses of CRESTOR within 12 hours of each other ■ If you take too much CRESTOR or overdose, call your health care professional or Poison Control Center right away or go to the nearest emergency room

WHAT SHOULD I TELL MY HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONAL BEFORE TAKING CRESTOR? Tell your health care professional if you ■ have a history of muscle pain or weakness ■ are pregnant or think you may be pregnant, or are planning to become pregnant ■ are breast-feeding ■ drink more than 2 glasses of alcohol daily ■ have liver problems ■ have kidney problems ■ have thyroid problems ■ are Asian or of Asian descent Tell your health care professional about all medicines you take or plan to take, including prescription and nonprescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.

Keep a list of your medicines with you to show your health care professional. If you need to go to the hospital or have surgery, tell all of your health care professionals about all medicines that you are taking.

Call your health care professional right away if you experience unexplained muscle pain, tenderness, or weakness, especially with fever. This may be an early sign of a rare muscle problem that could lead to serious kidney problems. The risk of muscle problems is greater in people who are 65 years of age or older, or who already have thyroid or kidney problems. The chance of muscle problems may be increased if you are taking certain other medicines with CRESTOR. Liver problems. Your health care professional should do blood tests before you start taking CRESTOR and during treatment to check for signs of possible liver problems.

Ask Marilyn By Marilyn vos Savant


To see a star in the night sky, I need to look a few degrees to the left or right of it. Why can’t I see the star when I look directly at it? —William Sexton, Virginia Beach, Va.

Readers often ask about this visual phenomenon, which evidences itself in so many ways. Human eyes have two kinds of photosensitive cells—cones and rods. Cones are used for seeing when it’s light; rods are used when it’s relatively dark. (No animals, not even owls, can see in total darkness.) The center of your eye contains only cones; the perimeter is dense with rods. So when you look directly at a star, it disappears because the cones can’t “see” it. But when you look nearby, the star reappears because the rods can see it. This is the reason observers so often feel that they’re never looking in quite the right place during a meteor shower. They’re right! Mostly we see the shooting stars only in our peripheral vision. You may notice the effect when you walk down stairs at night. If you look directly at the next step, you’ll feel less secure than if you look higher. Chickens have nearly all cones, so they can barely see at night. Rats are the opposite. Their eyes have nearly all rods, which is why they dislike daylight so much. Visit us at PARADE.COM

When I’m working, my trailer is my home, and I bring my own lunch, usually something simple like a salad. But when I’m not working, I love to cook. I like making homey, cozy food. In my family, we’re very spoiled in the food department. My dad’s side of the family is Jewish, and my great-grandmother made amazing matzo ball soup, noodle kugel, and mandelbrot. My mom’s side of the family is Italian, and when we have dinner for a large crowd, it’s usually ravioli or eggplant Parmesan. When I was learning to cook, I wanted to make something different from the usual Italian fare. So I consulted with my aunt Carol, my mother’s sister, who often cooked for big dinner parties. She suggested Chicken Sputnik, a recipe that at was handed down through ough generations. In the 1950s, onee dinner guest who h ate Aunt Carol’ss chicken declared itt “out of this world,”” and said, “ Thiss must be Chicken n Sputnik.” So now w that’s what my fammily calls it.

She is at the forefront of educators who believe that embracing technology rather than merely policing it will enhance learning. She has been active, for example, in using programs like PhotoBooth to help kids create interactive school reports.
