Muralists Herb Roe, from front, Gregg Gowland and Benny Graeff wash a wall on Grove Street just east of Levee Street as they prepare it for a Run Thru History mural that will be painted on the spot just across the street from the 32 historical Riverfront Murals. The artists were working during the only rain Vicksburg has seen in a month. They said the quick downpour, however, was a help rather than a hindrance in their prep work for the mural they expect to have completed in about three weeks. “It’s the only thing out here we do that the rain would help,” said Roe. Tuesday’s rain is forecast to be followed by a week of sunny skies and cooler temperatures.

FREE AT LAST 15 of 33 miners out; rest are on their way By The Associated Press SAN JOSE MINE, Chile — One by one, the miners trapped for 69 days in a dungeon that could have been their tomb climbed into a rescue capsule this morning and made a smooth ascent to the surface, greeted by the embraces of loved ones, cheered by joyous Chileans and watched by a captivated world. The anxiety that had accompanied the careful final days of preparation broke at 12:11 a.m., when the

stoutest of the men, Florencio Avalos, emerged from the missile-like chamber and smiled broadly after his halfmile journey to fresh air. By midday, 15 men had been pulled from the mine in roughly 12 hours, including the oldest and youngest among the trapped. The effort was methodical and free of any significant problems, and on track to finish before sunrise Thursday.

Downtown Partners wants residents to offer ideas for change By Manivanh Chanprasith After forming in March and meeting monthly since, theDowntown Partners advisory panel voted Tuesday to host its first project, a campaign to increase foot traffic on Washington Street. “We’ve been meeting for about four or five months,” said Larry Gawronski, the VenuWorks employee who


serves as executive director of the Vicksburg Convention Center and Vicksburg Auditorium. “And I want to continue brainstorming while we focus some of those thoughts into processes or some action steps.” The project, called Picture Yourself Downtown, will ask residents to suggest ideas for downtown businesses. “Our group, as visionaries, comes up with a lot of ideas,”

Gawronski said. “I hope that this may be one that, not only we adopt formally, but is carried through for all of downtown. Maybe this Picture Yourself in Downtown might be something we can hang our hat on.” No date has been set for the campaign. “With hundreds of people who come down, perhaps, this will create some excitement with them about what’s

going on downtown,” said David Day, owner and operator of the Klondyke on Washington Street. Meanwhile, members agreed the panel should continue meetings with other economic development organizations to balance residential, commercial and entertainment interests along Washington Street.

The Pacific Region based in Sacramento, Calif., lists 320 Corps members; the Southwest Region based in Denver has 320; the Atlantic Region in Perry Point, Md., has 160; and the North Central Region in Vinton, Iowa, 160. North Central also is scheduled to expand, by 80 members, Roberts said. Corps members, between the ages of 18 and 24, participate in work related to disaster relief, environmental conservation, public safety, urban and rural development, energy conservation, infrastructure improvement, education and responses to other critical needs of a community. They are required to work 1,700 volunteer hours and 80 independent hours throughout their 10-month service. At the end of service, members receive a $5,350 Ameri-

With the influx of volunteers coming into Vicksburg, Roberts encourages local nonprofit agencies to apply for the next rounds of service projects set to begin in March and running through December. “We can only accept a number of projects for the number of teams,” she explained. “Since we’re expanding from 14 teams to nearly 40 teams, that gives us a lot more resources for service projects.” Agencies can apply by filling out a concept form by Friday for projects scheduled between March 30 and May 18. Deadlines are later for other work times. Once an application is submitted, NCCC program directors decide which projects get the green light.

Since forming, the group has persistently discussed the economic potential of the five-block Washington Street strip, but abandoned the idea of becoming a business improvement district, similar to one in Jackson, where a group operates on a budget and provides security and promotes downtown residency and economic development.

State set to hire first medical examiner since 1995 By Shelia Byrd The Associated Press JACKSON — Mississippi is expected to hire its first medical examiner in 15 years by Nov. 1, and Department of Public Safety Commissioner Steve Simpson said he’s hopeful at least two other associate pathologists will soon be on board to help handle the state’s autopsy cases.

“We have one doctor who has an engagement letter to come here Nov. 1. I’m interviewing another doctor this week in Houston (Texas), and a third has expressed an interest in coming here,” Simpson said Tuesday. Mississippi’s contract with a Tennessee-based company that had been performing autopsies for the state ends Friday. Simpson said Global

Forensics exercised an option to get out of the contract. “We’ve not had any problems with the quality of their work at all. The doctors commute from Tennessee to Mississippi. It has given the coroners some difficulty in having the line of communication they’re used to,” Simpson said. It’s been nearly two years since the state terminated its contract with Dr. Steven

Hayne, a pathologist who came under fire for his work in several criminal cases, including ones that resulted in the exoneration of two men who had been convicted of capital murder. Mississippi last had a medical examiner in 1995. The void had been filled by Hayne, who handled the majority of autopsies for the state’s criminal investigations.

The state’s forensic investigation system came under scrutiny for Hayne’s work. At the time, he didn’t have American Board of Pathology certification in forensic pathology. Gov. Haley Barbour signed into law a requirement that pathologists performing autopsies for the state must be board-certified. Simpson had previously said the state would pay $250,000

for a medical examiner. On Tuesday, he wouldn’t disclose the latest salary being discussed. Simpson said the University of Mississippi Medical Center will provide autopsy and medical services for the office. Simpson said the search for a medical examiner was hampered, in part, because there’s a shortage of board-certified physicians.

2 sentenced, fined $3.4M U.S. House hopefuls talk health care, jobs in embezzlement scheme On the campaign trail

By Emily Wagster Pettus The Associated Press

OXFORD — North Mississippi congressional candidates exchanged sharp words at a debate Tuesday night about how loyal each would be to his party’s leadership on Capitol Hill. U.S. Rep. Travis Childers, a Democrat, said he’s been an independent voice since being elected just over two years ago and has tried to work across the aisle with Republicans when he thinks they have good ideas. Republican challenger Alan Nunnelee said Childers has done too little to block legislation pushed by Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, including the massive federal health care overhaul that became law earlier this year. Childers voted against the health care bill, but Nunnelee said that wasn’t enough. “I think we need somebody there to hold that liberal agenda accountable,” Nunnelee said during a debate at the University of Mississippi. Childers, who was elected in 2008, said he thinks the health bill is too expensive and too broad. He said Republicans share some blame. “If his party had come to the table and worked on that bill, I think it could’ve been a better bill,” Childers said, gesturing

U.S. Rep. Travis Childers, left, and State Sen. Alan Nunnelee shake hands after their debate Tuesday in Oxford. toward Nunnelee. “Both parties love to jump to the extremes — one to the right, one to the left. And it leaves north Mississippi people like me out.” Nunnelee said that if elected, he’ll do “whatever is necessary to get that horrible bill off the books,” but he wants some changes in the health care system, including allowing people to buy health insurance across state lines and placing limits on medical malpractice lawsuits. Childers said the new law

has some strong features that need to stay in place, including provisions allowing people up to age 26 to stay on their parents’ health insurance and blocking insurance companies from denying coverage because of pre-existing conditions. The university-sponsored debate Tuesday night was the candidates’ only face-to-face exchange of the fall campaign. Seven independent or thirdparty candidates will also appear on the Nov. 2 ballot

in the 1st District, but they weren’t invited to participate in the debate. Nunnelee repeatedly said Democrats have taken the country in the wrong direction the past two years, and criticized the party for a rise in unemployment, the passage of economic stimulus packages and the increase in the federal debt. Childers said that Nunnelee, who is chairman of the state Senate Appropriations Committee, wouldn’t have been able to balance the state budget without federal stimulus funds. “He took the stimulus money that he’s so quick to criticize, hypocritically, I might add,” Childers said. “He’s so quick to criticize it, but yet he raked in $600 million to fill every hole in the state budget and left teachers on the sidelines, left classrooms overflowing when he could have done something about it and he didn’t.” Nunnelee characterized his own candidacy as “a crusade to save America.” “We can’t afford another 22,000 lost jobs in the 1st Congressional District. We can’t afford another $800 billion of debt,” Nunnelee said. “So tonight, we say, ‘No more.’ No more excessive spending. No more borrowing from our grandchildren and their grandchildren.”

GULFPORT (AP) — Two former Hancock Bank employees have each been sentenced to 8 1/2 years in prison and ordered to pay more than $3.4 million in restitution for their role in a multimillion-dollar scheme to defraud the bank. Margaret Migues and Doris Burney were sentenced Tuesday by U.S. District Court Judge Louis Guirola Jr. in Gulfport after pleading guilty earlier to embezzlement charges. Before sentencing each woman, Judge Louis Guirola Jr. said their crime “affected this community deeply.” Assistant U.S. Attorney Ruth Morgan said the embezzlement scheme started around 1982 when Migues and Burney started working side-by-side as bank tellers.

Morgan said the two women, along with two unnamed coconspirators, stole money from the accounts of elderly people they’d befriended. Prosecutors said the bank customers targeted in this embezzlement ranged in age from 71 to 102. Prosecutors have said a federal investigator first tipped off the bank to the embezzlement scheme after he realized $150,000 was missing from his then-73-year-old mother’s account. During the sentencing hearing, Guirola said the defendants admitted to choosing those customers based upon their age and the fact they did not thoroughly keep up with their accounts.

Ex-Natchez cop says guilty to taking group’s funds NATCHEZ, Miss. — A retired Natchez police officer has pleaded guilty to embezzling $421 from the Fraternal Order of Police. Gail Marie Frisby, 58, was arrested last week. She was sentenced by Justice Court Judge Charlie Vess to six months in county jail,

but the judge suspended the sentence. The embezzlement occurred while Frisby served as treasurer for the organization, authorities said. Frisby retired from the police department about three years ago after 28 years.

, BAILESS & RECTOR, LLP Two Jackson banks robbed in one day WHEELESS, SHAPPLEY Attorneys at Law JACKSON, Miss. — A would-be robber came out empty handed in an attempted heist before striking again a few hours later at a bank about a mile down the road, Jackson polie said Tuesday. The suspect had an accomplice the second time, police said, and two used handguns to steal an undisclosed amount of cash from a Trustmark National Bank branch. The first bank hit was State Bank & Trust Co. Investigators believe they know the name of one of the suspects, said Jackson police spokeswoman Colendula Green. Police spent nearly an hour searching a north Jackson apartment building. Jackson police have responded to at least nine bank holdups this year — five in the last five weeks.

Police: Man admits to 2005 bank robbery GULFPORT, Miss. — A 61-year-old Louisiana man walked into the Harrison County Adult Detention Center and confessed to a 2005 bank robbery, Gulfport police say. Dale Evans Mott of Jennings told police he turned himself in because of the guilt, Sgt. Chris Ryle said. Police had been unable to solve the Feb. 10, 2005, holdup at an AmSouth Bank branch until Monday. Mott is charged with armed robbery, and bond was set at $100,000.

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Anthony D. Oatis, 30, and Richard D. Long, 30, were charged Tuesday with firstdegree murder and conspiracy to commit first-degree murder. Walker is from Rayville; Oatis and Long are from Monroe. Alexander was shot when he answered a burglary call.

Arrest warrant put off for Greenville top cop GREENVILLE, Miss. — A Washington County judge has delayed a decision on whether to issue an arrest warrant for Greenville’s police chief amid allegations from three women that he threatened to shoot them. Circuit Judge Ashley Hines presided Tuesday over a hearing and took the issues under advisement. He did not say when he would rule. Chief Charles Patterson was suspended without pay in September after three women — Kela Miller, Ne’Cura Swilley and Kiara Richardson — signed affidavits that Patterson threatened them.

Man who killed six in Memphis gets death MEMPHIS — A man who killed six people in a bloody rampage in a Memphis home two years ago, including his brother and two young nephews, was sentenced to die by injection Tuesday by the same jury that convicted him of one of the city’s worst mass murders. The jury talked less than two hours before deciding six death sentences for Jessie Dotson, 35, an ex-convict. He showed little reaction as the sentence was delivered, but appeared to nod as Criminal Court Judge James Beasley imposed it. He also nodded

as officers led him out of the courtroom. Dotson was found guilty Monday of six counts of firstdegree murder in the shooting deaths of his brother, his brother’s girlfriend and two other adults, and the fatal stabbings of two nephews, ages 2 and 4.

Sentence delay sought in Katrina shootings NEW ORLEANS — Federal prosecutors have asked a judge to postpone a sentencing hearing for a former New Orleans police officer who pleaded guilty to helping cover up deadly shootings of unarmed residents on a bridge in Hurricane Katrina’s aftermath. The former officer, Michael Hunter, is to be sentenced Nov. 17, but prosecutors said they need more time to evaluate his cooperation. U.S. District Judge Sarah Vance didn’t rule on their request Tuesday. Hunter is one of five former officers who have pleaded guilty in the case. Six other officers also have been indicted in the shootings and cover-up. Police shot and killed two people and wounded four others on the Danziger Bridge after the 2005 storm.

Judicial write-in suit before state judge JACKSON, Miss. — A judge was to hear arguments today in a lawsuit filed by four circuit clerks who want to block a write-in election this November for a judicial post in Covington, Jasper, Simpson and Smith counties.

Masquerading as expression A number of Americans oppose the U.S. military presence in Iraq and Afghanistan. Some have taken to the streets in open protest. But do such protests cross a line when they interfere with the solemn funeral of a fallen soldier? The Supreme Court has agreed to weigh in on the matter. American military personnel have generally received the respect and gratitude that they deserve from the public. However, a group of people from a church in Topeka, Kan., have gone out of their way to do the opposite. The Westboro Baptist Church (most of its members are relatives of the pastor, Fred Phelps), have bounced around the country looking for attention by staging demonstrations at churches and military funerals. They shout and hold placards denouncing homosexuals, Catholics, Jews and other groups. Westboro members preach that U.S. military deaths are God’s punishment for laws that protect the civil rights of homosexuals. They held one such demonstration at the 2006 funeral of Marine

Matthew Snyder at a Catholic church in Westminster, Md. They carried signs that stated, “Thank God for dead soldiers,” “God Hates the USA/Thank God for 9/11,” and other incendiary statements. The protest, and counterprotests, forced the funeral procession to change its route to the cemetery. The group also posted a poem on its website accusing Mathew Snyder’s mother and father of being bad parents. The father sued, claiming harassment and intentional infliction of emotional distress. He was awarded $11 million in a lower court, which was later reduced to $5 million. A federal appeals court, however, reversed the judgment. Westboro filed a claim against Snyder’s father demanding $16,000 in court fees, which the court said he must pay. He has refused. The Westboro group’s tactics are distasteful, probably even to people who might agree with them. They are, however, criticisms of U.S. policy that must be protected under the First Amendment. Whether they have a right to target and harass inno-

cent Americans during a time of their greatest grief is something with which the high court must wrestle. But any decision that restricts a group’s ability to take a contrarian position is dangerous, since people will be quick to declare any unpleasantness as harassment. Past Supreme Court decisions have noted that the First Amendment was designed specifically for this kind of situation. After all, there’s no need to protect speech when everyone agrees with what someone is saying. Dissent must be protected, and protesters have no obligation to be nice. The First Amendment also gives groups like Westboro the right to assemble peaceably, although local law enforcement can restrict their movement and placement in the interest of public safety. Most cemeteries are private property. The best way to lessen the likelihood of such nuisances, of course, would be to stop being so quick to launch questionable military campaigns and ask questions later.

Bullying represents a lack of character Bullying is an issue on people’s minds right now. They want to know how to deal with it. From legislators to school administrators and teachers, everyone is trying to figure out the best way to deal with bullies. Lately, we’ve seen how pressure from bullying can be so great on its victims that some go to extreme lengths to make it stop. Seventh grade was the worst year of my life because of bullying. Like my peers, I left the security of my neighborhood elementary school and was thrust into junior high. The school was larger and all the kids from all the elementary schools were coming together to start a new era in our lives. Unfortunately, I was separated from my old friends and placed in a homeroom class of kids I didn’t know. That’s when the fun started. I was small, shy


Seventh grade was the worst year of my life because of bullying

Anderson and scared. A girl named, well I’ll just call her AH (for fear she’ll read this and come back and make good on a promise she made to me every day – to beat me up) threatened me, constantly. I told my parents. I don’t know exactly what they did with the information but I remember seeing my dad drive the periphery of my route as I walked home. He’d leave work in the middle of the afternoon to be my guardian angel, I suppose.

What a guy! He thought I didn’t see him and I don’t remember ever talking to him about it. AH never beat me up after school, but I had to live with her threats all the time. One day things reached a point of confrontation and I had to defend myself right in the middle of science class. She had pushed me to the brink and we both wound up in the vice principal’s office. She got a paddling. I didn’t. I can only presume that her reputation as a bully preceded her. Or,

maybe mine as a non-troublemaker had preceded me. Perhaps my parents had used the information I had given them, after all. I only know I never had any more problems after that. As a matter of fact, AH wanted to be my friend in eighth grade. Go figure. I don’t know exactly what happened, but I feel safe in concluding that adults were involved in solving my bully problem. Many kids deal with bullies and they need sensible adults with calm heads to help them. Bullying seems more popular now because violence and humiliation can be disgustingly displayed on YouTube. When all is said and done, bullying represents a lack of character development and home training. Someone has failed to instill the Golden Rule. Parents should not expect teachers,

administrators or legislators to do the job God gave them to do. Other folks can try, but can never replace the influence of parents. We could solve a lot of problems if we simply used a little commonsense, discipline, and actually spent time teaching and modeling godly behavior in our homes and communities. You don’t have to be a brain surgeon to understand this, but you do have to have a sense of right and wrong and responsibility based on the Word of God. If a child is a bully it is obvious that he doesn’t respect his parents either. Now how did that happen? • Debra Anderson, a Vicksburg native, is an economic planner employed by the state for 25 years who has worked as a volunteer with the Jackson Public Schools for 20 years.

Government: Move food labels to front WASHINGTON (AP) — Government health advisers say food manufacturers should cut the clutter on the front of food packages and focus on the nutrients that cause the most health problems: calories, saturated fat, trans fat and sodium. As most consumers can attest, a trip to the grocery store these days includes a confusing blast of messages on food labels. Many companies highlight a food’s beneficial ingredients — or lack of an unhealthy ingredient — on the front of the item and leave the bad news for the government-mandated nutrition label on the back. “As Americans grapple with increasing rates of serious health problems connected to their diets, it’s important that the nutritional information they receive is clear, consistent and well-grounded in nutrition science,� said Ellen Wartella, a psychology professor at Northwestern University who chaired the committee that prepared the Institute of Medicine study. The report was to be released today.

smart money Q: I have great credit. I’ve been able to pay all of my bills in a timely manner. The one thing that I did not do was save money for my son, who will be going away to college next year. What is the best approach to paying for college when one hasn’t prepared financially? I have the ability to take out a loan and make the monthly payments, as my job is very secure. — L.W., via e-mail A: Student loan markets, like all credittype markets, have been hit hard with today’s BRUCE economic woes and the credit crunch.

outstanding credit, you may very well be able to borrow against an asset such as a home. There are student-financing loans such as the PLUS (Parents Loan for Undergraduate Students). These loans are still available; however, payment must begin almost immediately upon entering school (in comparison with a traditional student loan, which defers payments until after graduation or schooling has ended). I would contact the financial aid office of the school or schools your son wants to attend and see what is the best deal that you can get. You also should have a chat with your local banker.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Deep water oil drills quieted by a six-month moratorium will again hum off the Gulf Coast, helping an industry that, despite its dangers, puts needed money in the pockets of thousands. What’s less certain is just how soon the jobs on hold because of the sixmonth ban will come back to a region trying to recover. Thirty-three deep water operations were halted by the moratorium imposed as the BP oil disaster unfolded. Meeting new federal safety requirements imposed since then will take time. “Those big rigs that left the Gulf, it’s going to take them a while to come back,” said Ronnie Kennier, an Empire, La., fisherman working in BP’s oil clean-up program. The Obama administration, under heavy pressure from the oil industry and Gulf states and with elections nearing, on Tuesday lifted the moratorium that it imposed in April. The ban had been scheduled to expire Nov. 30, but Interior Secretary Ken Salazar moved up the deadline, saying new rules have strengthened safety and reduced the risk of another catastrophic blowout that caused more than 200 million gallons of crude to spew from BP’s well a mile beneath the Gulf. A federal report said the prohibition likely caused a temporary loss of 8,000 to 12,000 jobs and drilling is unlikely

Tugs move deep water drilling rigs into port at Pascagoula in August. The rigs were moved because of the drilling moratorium. to resume for at least a few weeks. Todd Hornbeck, CEO of Covington, La.-based Hornbeck Offshore Services, said lifting the ban would still leave the industry in a “de facto moratorium stage” until the government fully explains how new drilling permits will be issued. “We’re still in the dark,” said Hornbeck, who heads one of the companies that sued to block the Interior’s initial moratorium. His company provides vessels and other services for the offshore industry. “Right now, I’m skeptical that it will be any time soon that permits will be issued,”

Stocks climb higher on upbeat earnings NEW YORK (AP) — Upbeat earnings from JPMorgan Chase, Intel and CSX helped drive stocks higher today. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 66 points in morning trading as each of the three companies’ earnings topped forecasts. Their results provided some reassurances that parts of the economy are showing signs of slight improvement, though growth remains sluggish. JPMorgan Chase & Co., the first big bank to report third-quarter results, said its profit jumped 23 percent as it was able to cut down on the amount of money it sets aside

to cover bad loans. Chipmaker Intel Corp. beat forecasts on both income and revenue. Results at CSX Corp. also topped forecasts, an encouraging sign that at least parts of the economy are growing. The Dow Jones rose 68.68, or 0.6 percent, to 11,089.08 in morning trading. The Standard & Poor’s 500 rose 7.25, or 0.6 percent, to 1,177.02, while the Nasdaq rose 16.06, or 0.7 percent, to 2,433.98. Bond prices dipped and interest rates rose slightly. The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note rose to 2.47 percent from 2.43 percent.

he said. On the Gulf, oil stands with fishing and tourism as economic linchpins. All three were hit hard by the spill that began when the oil rig Deepwater Horizon exploded on April 20, killing 11 workers about 50 miles off the Gulf Coast. It took three months to cap the well that was shut down for good last month. Fishing was severely curtailed, tourists stayed away and the safety of the oil industry was assailed. Republican Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said he was “glad they are beginning to reverse this job-killing policy.” Though the administration’s policy only addressed deep

water operations, “severe bottlenecks in the federal permit review process have resulted in a de facto moratorium for shallow water drilling,” he said. Jindal said since early June, only 12 new permits have been issued for shallow water wells, compared to the pre-deepwater-moratorium average of 10 to 14 a month. Mississppi’s Gov. Haley Barbour, also a Republican, said, “Having opposed the imposition of the moratorium, I am glad it has been lifted. I look forward to receiving the details.” Mississippi’s U.S. senators, both Republicans, expressed optimism and concern. “I am encouraged by the Interior Department’s decision to lift the deepwater moratorium,” said Sen. Thad Cochran, “but I know that additional actions are necessary to ensure a viable offshore energy sector.” Sen.. Roger Wicker said, “Although I am glad the president finally lifted the ban on offshore drilling, I remain concerned that bureaucratic red tape and administrative hurdles continue to increase uncertainty in the energy industry.” The decision to lift the ban comes just weeks before midterm elections in which Democrats face criticism for overextending government actions on the economy and the drilling moratorium.

Miners Continued from Page A1. surface. He hugged his wife, handed out souvenir rocks from the mine to laughing rescuers, bounded out and thrust a fist upward like a prizefighter. “I think I had extraordinary luck. I was with God and with the devil. And I reached out for God,” Sepulveda said as he awaited the air force helicopter ride to a nearby hospital where all the miners were to spend 48 hours under medical observation. No one in recorded history has survived as long trapped underground as the 33 men. For the first 17 days after 700,000 tons of rock collapsed around them Aug. 5, no one even knew whether they were alive. In the weeks that followed, the world was transfixed by their endurance and unity. As it traveled down and up, down and up, the capsule was not rotating as much inside the 2,041-foot escape shaft as officials expected, allowing for faster trips, Health Minister Jaime Manalich said. The rescues came as quickly as 36 minutes apart. Manalich told a news conference after eight miners were rescued that all of them were in good health, and none has required any special medication, not even the diabetic among them. Chile exploded in joy and relief at the first, breakthrough rescue just after midnight in the coastal Atacama desert. In the capital, Santiago, a cacophony of car horns sounded. In the nearby regional capital of Copiapo, from which 24 of the miners hail, the mayor canceled school so parents and children could “watch the rescue in the warmth of the home.” All-news channels from North America to Europe and the Middle East carried live coverage. Pope Benedict XVI said in Spanish that he “continues with hope to entrust to God’s goodness” the fate of the men. Iran’s state English-language Press TV followed events live until President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad touched down in Lebanon on his first state visit there. The images beamed world-

Glenn F. Boatman Glenn F. Boatman died Sunday, Oct. 10, 2010, at his home. He was 72. Mr. Boatman was born in Stewart. He was the founding member of the Boatman Family musical group and the owner of Boatman Trucking. He was a member of Bible Holiness Church of Vicksburg and Souls Haven Church in Tomnolen, Miss. He was preceded in death by his father, Gladys Boatman and his mother, Lorene Dodd Boatman; and one sister, Christine Campbell. Survivors include his wife, Doris Allen Boatman of Vicksburg; two sons, Glenn A. Boatman and Ray Boatman, both of Vicksburg; three daughters, Judy Crowley of Eupora and Rebecca Sanderson and Lisa Braswell, both of Vicksburg; two sisters, Dorothy Hines of Jackson and Ann Berry of Louisville, Miss.; two brothers, W.L. “Wesley” Dodd of Eupora and Dale Boatman of Stewart; and 10 grandchildren and seven greatgrandchildren. Services were today at 11 a.m. at Oliver Funeral Home in Eupora with the Revs. Doyce Armstrong, James Caffey and Steve Rowland officiating. Burial followed at Reeds Chapel Cemetery.

Margaret Wallace Christian MIDLOTHIAN, Va. — Mar-

wide were extraordinary: Grainy footage from beneath the earth showed each miner climbing into the 13-foot-tall capsule, then disappearing upward through an opening. Then a camera showed the pod steadily rising through the dark, smooth-walled tunnel. After the fifth miner made his ascent — 19-year-old Jimmy Sanchez, the youngest and the father of a months-old baby — the rescuers paused to lubricate the spring-loaded wheels that gave the capsule a smooth ride through the shaft, then resumed the rescues. The ninth, Mario Gomez, who at 63 is the oldest miner, dropped to his knees after he emerged, bowed his head in prayer and clutched the Chilean flag. His wife, Lilianette Ramirez, pulled him up from the ground and embraced him. Gomez is most experienced of the group, first entering a mine shaft to labor at age 12, and suffers from silicosis, a lung disease common to miners. He has been on antibiotics and bronchial inflammation medicine. Manalich said Gomez came up with a special oxygen mask. The lone foreigner among the miners, Carlos Mamani of Bolivia, was visited at a nearby clinic by Pinera and Bolivian President Evo Morales. The miner could be heard telling the Chilean president how nice it was to breathe fresh air and see the stars. The entire rescue operation was meticulously choreographed, with no expense spared in bringing in topflight drillers and equipment — and boring three separate holes into the copper and gold mine. Mining is Chile’s lifeblood, providing 40 percent of state earnings, and Pinera put his mining minister and the operations chief of stateowned Codelco, the country’s biggest company, in charge of the rescue. It went so well that its managers abandoned what a legion of journalists had deemed an ultraconservative plan for restricting images of the rescue. A huge Chilean flag that was to obscure the hole from view was moved aside so the hundreds of cameras perched on a hill above could record images

that state TV also fed live. That included the surreal moment when the capsule dropped for the first time into the chamber, where the bare-chested miners, most stripped down to shorts because of the subterranean swelter, mobbed the rescuer who emerged to serve as their guide to freedom. “This rescue operation has been so marvelous, so clean, so emotional that there was no reason not to allow the eyes of the world — which have been watching this operation so closely — to see it,” a beaming Pinera told a news conference after Avalos was brought to the surface. Avalos, the 31-year-old second-in-command of the miners, was chosen to be first out because he was in the best condition. When the capsule came out of the manhole-sized opening, Avalos stepped out as bystanders cheered, clapped and broke into a chant of the country’s name — “Chi! Chi! Chi! Le! Le! Le!” The next three men out, including Mamani of Bolivia, followed because they were deemed the fittest of body and mind. The 10 to follow included miners with health problems such as hypertension, diabetes and skin ulcers. The operation started just before midnight, when a Codelco rescuer made the sign of the cross and was lowered to the trapped men. A navy paramedic went down after Avalos came up — a surprise improvisation as officials had said the two would go down to oversee the miners’ ascent before the first went up. The last miner was slated to be shift foreman Luis Urzua, whose leadership was credited with helping the men endure the first two and a half weeks without outside contact. The men made 48 hours’ worth of rations last before rescuers reached them with a narrow bore hole to send down more food. Janette Marin, sister-in-law of miner Dario Segovia, said the order of rescue didn’t matter. “This won’t be a success unless they all get out,” she said. Chilean officials played down the risks of the rescue. Panic attacks during the ascent, they said, were

the biggest concern. The miners were not sedated — they needed to be alert in case something went awry. Manalich said rescuers could accelerate the capsule to its maximum speed of 3 meters per second if necessary. Rescue coordinator Andre Sougarett told The Associated Press beforehand that the worst technical problem would be the possibility that “a rock could fall” and jam the capsule in the shaft. But Davitt McAteer, who directed the U.S. Mine Safety and Health Administration during the Clinton administration, said there were many risks: A miner could get claustrophobic and somehow jam the capsule, the cable could get hung up, or the rig that pulls the cable could overheat. “You can be good and you can be lucky. And they’ve been good and lucky,” McAteer told the AP just before the operation commenced. “Knock on wood that this luck holds out for the next 33 hours.” The CEO of the Austrian company that made the capsule’s winch and pulley system said there was no danger of the motor overheating because the winch was not working under maximum capacity. Mining Minister Laurence Golborne, whose management of the crisis has made him a media star in Chile, insisted all risks had been considered. “There is no need to try to start guessing what could go wrong. We have done that job,” Golborne said. “We have hundreds of different contingencies.” McAteer said he gave “very high marks” to the Chileans for creating lowered expectations by saying that it might take until Christmas to rescue the men — and then consistently delivering results ahead of schedule. “Second, they have had very few technical problems,” he said. Rescuers finished reinforcing the top of the escape shaft Monday, and capsules descended flawlessly in tests. Three capsules were built by Chilean navy engineers, named Phoenix for the mythical bird that rises from ashes and painted in the white, blue and red of the national flag. Only one has

A7 been used in the rescue. The miners’ vital signs were closely monitored throughout the ride. They were given a high-calorie liquid diet donated by NASA, designed to prevent nausea from any rotation of the capsule as it travels through curves in the 28-inch-diameter escape hole. Engineers inserted steel piping at the top of the shaft, which is angled 11 degrees off vertical before plunging like a waterfall. Drillers had to curve the shaft to pass through “virgin” rock, narrowly avoiding collapsed areas and underground open spaces in the overexploited mine, which had operated since 1885. Protections for the men were extensive: A video camera watched each ascending miner for signs of panic. They had oxygen masks and two-way voice communication, and wore dark glasses to guard their eyes against the sudden exposure to light. They took aspirin and wore compression socks to prevent blood clotting, and donned sweaters for the change in climate — from about 90 degrees underground to near freezing on the surface after nightfall. At the regional hospital in Copiapo, two floors were prepared for the miners to be evaluated. U.S. President Barack Obama praised rescuers, including a team from Center Rock Inc. of Berlin, Pa., that built and managed the piston-driven hammers that pounded open the hole. Chile has promised that its care of the miners won’t end for six months at least — not until they can be sure that each miner has readjusted. Psychiatrists and other experts in surviving extreme situations predict their lives will be anything but normal. Since Aug. 22, when a narrow bore hole broke through to their refuge and the miners stunned the world with a note, scrawled in red ink, disclosing their survival, their families have been exposed in ways they never imagined. Miners had to describe their physical and mental health in detail with teams of doctors and psychologists before the rescue began.

Friends say missing North Carolina girlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stepmother was angry HICKORY, N.C. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; To relatives and former neighbors, Elisa Baker had a short fuse. In interviews and court documents, they portrayed her as nasty-tempered and willing to use a gun or her fists to settle an argument and say her disabled stepdaughter usually bore the brunt of her

rage. Investigators said Tuesday they believe someone killed 10-year-old Zahra Clare Baker, who was reported missing over the weekend. Baker was scheduled to appear in court today, accused of trying to throw off investigators with a fake ransom note.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was always beating her,â&#x20AC;? former neighbor Karen Yount said Tuesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I told her to stop but she wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t listen to anyone. That poor girl.â&#x20AC;? Police said the search for Zahra had shifted to a homicide investigation, canceling a missing child alert for the shy but upbeat girl who used

hearing aids and a prosthetic leg because of bone cancer. Elisa Baker is the only person accused in the case so far. Hickory Police Chief Tom Adkins said she was charged with felony obstruction of justice after admitting she wrote the note, which asked for $1 million. She had already been

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask, Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A federal judgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ruling that the military must stop its â&#x20AC;&#x153;donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tellâ&#x20AC;? policy comes amid conflicting concerns of gays who think the government is moving too slowly to let them serve openly and Pentagon officials who believe that moving too quickly might disrupt a military engaged in war. Gay rights groups have said they are disappointed that legislation to override the ban is likely to languish in Congress until next year, when Democrats could have fewer seats and less power to override Republican objections. Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mike Mullen, the militaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top uniformed officer, have supported lifting the ban on gays serving openly. But Gates and Mullen also have warned that they would prefer to move slowly. Meantime, despite a federal judgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ruling in San Diego Tuesday, the battle in the courts over gays in the military may be far from over. The Justice Departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first response might well be another trip to the courtroom of U.S. District Judge Virginia Phillips in San Diego to seek a stay, or temporary freeze, of her ruling. If Phillips turns down the request, the Justice Department will likely turn to the federal appeals court in California.

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Supreme Court is trying to sort out whether drug companies can be sued for claims of serious side effects from childhood vaccines without driving vaccine makers from the market and risking a public health crisis. The court heard arguments Tuesday in an appeal filed by Pittsburgh-area parents who want to sue drug maker Wyeth, which is owned by Pfizer Inc., for the health problems they say their 18-year-old daughter suffered from a vaccine she received in infancy. Several justices appeared sympathetic to the parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; plea to be allowed to make their case in court. Wyeth, backed by the Obama administration and many public health groups, argued that Congress shielded drug companies from most vaccine lawsuits when it created a special vaccine court 24 years ago to handle the claims. But if lawmakers wanted to prevent lawsuits like the one at issue Tuesday, â&#x20AC;&#x153;they could have said simply that no vaccine manufacturer may be held civilly liable if the vaccine is properly prepared and accompanied by proper directions and adequate warnings,â&#x20AC;? Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said. On the other hand, Chief Justice John Roberts said, it could be argued â&#x20AC;&#x153;that because they

set up a compensation scheme, that was a good sign that they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to allow state law claims.â&#x20AC;? In other Harold action, the Skinner court: â&#x20AC;˘ Is considering the case of a Texas death row inmate found with the blood of murder victims on his clothing. Hank Skinner is seeking help in getting access to other evidence for DNA testing that might implicate someone else. Skinner was convicted of pummeling his girlfriend with a pickax handle and stabbing her two sons on New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eve in 1993 in their Texas Panhandle home. DNA evidence at his trial showed that blood on his clothing was from at least two of the victims. â&#x20AC;˘ Turned down a request to lift Washington state limits on campaign contributions in the final weeks of ballot measure campaigns. The court said Tuesday that it will leave in place a decision from a federal appeals court that keeps a $5,000 limit in effect in the final three weeks of an initiative or referendum campaign. The action comes despite a federal judgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ruling that capping contributions is unconstitutional.

Officials in every state but Alabama launch investigation of foreclosures WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Officials in 49 states have launched a joint investigation into allegations that mortgage companies mishandled documents and broke laws in foreclosing on hundreds of thousands of homeowners. The officials, including attorneys general and bank regulators, will examine whether mortgage company employees made false statements or prepared documents improperly. Alabama was the only state not to join the investigation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This group has the backing of nearly every state in the nation to get to the bottom of this foreclosure mess,â&#x20AC;? said Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller, who is leading the probe. Four large lenders â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Ally Financial Inc.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s GMAC Mortgage Unit, Bank of America and JPMorgan Chase & Co. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; already have halted questionable foreclosures after evidence emerged that bank employees processed thousands of foreclosure documents without reading them.

Six NATO members killed in Afghan blasts KABUL, Afghanistan â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Four NATO service members were killed in a bomb attack in southern Afghanistan today, the military coalition said. The international alliance did not provide further details, in keeping with a policy of waiting for national authorities to announce the citizenship of victims and specifics of an incident. Two other NATO deaths had already been reported today, making a total of six service members killed for the day. One of those died in an insurgent attack in the east and the other in a bomb explosion in the south. This has been the deadliest year for international troops in the nine-year Afghan conflict, and the escalating toll has shaken the commitment of many NATO countries, with rising calls to start drawing down troops quickly.

‘Buzz’ helpful chronicle of mother-son pair with ADD By Rasha Madkour The Associated Press If you think having a child with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder can be exhausting, imagine what happens when the child’s parent has it, too. “I go back and forth from thinking I’m the best possible mother for Buzz, because I can so deeply empathize, to thinking I’m the worst, because we so often clash,” writes Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Katherine Ellison in her new book, “Buzz: A Year of Paying

Book Review Attention.” Ellison chronicles her quest to understand her son and their shared clinicalgrade distraction. (Buzz was 9 when he was diagnosed three years ago.) As she delves into the world of ADD, the nation’s most commonly diagnosed mental disorder in children, Ellison learns that “we’ve ended up with much more data than knowledge.” First comes the debate over the label — is it an excuse or an explanation? A character

or a syndrome? Then there are the countless contradictory therapies “running the gamut from medication to meditation,” as Ellison puts it. What follows is a smart, easy-to-understand explanation of the disorder and Ellison’s experience with various interventions, including neurofeedback, the prescription stimulant Concerta and supplements with names like Mind Power Rx and BrainSustain. Ellison also highlights schools and programs around the country that have

had great success with kids like Buzz. At one such high school, “the rule rather than the exception is that students are out of their seats, involved in hands-on projects and teamwork,” she writes. Teachers are required to advise small groups of students throughout their high school years: “Each student knows that there is at least one adult at the school who feels personally responsible for his or her success.” “Initially designed for marginalized children, these tactics end up helping all students, the advocates say.

Parents can take steps to prevent suicides, bullying NEW YORK (AP) — With bullying, teen suicides and harassment of gay teenagers making headlines, parents may be wondering what role they can play in discouraging kids from tormenting others whom they perceive as different. Homosexuality remains a controversial issue in some communities. But nobody wants to see their child victimized. And nobody wants their kid involved in an incident that might lead a peer to hurt himself or herself. So what should parents do or say if a teenager tells them he or she is gay? Should parents ask about a child’s sexual orientation if they’re wondering? How can adults create an environment that promotes tolerance and discourages bullying? And is there anything we can do to prevent teen suicides? Here’s some advice from experts. • Consider the language, jokes and comments your child may be hearing at home or from others. “One of the reasons kids are afraid to talk to parents is that they’ve heard parents say prejudicial things in the past. It’s amazing the effect offhand comments can make,” said John R. Cepek, national president of Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays, who describes himself as the “proud dad of a gay son. “ “You can create a culture of prejudice in the family. Kids pick up on that.” “We all need to be vigilant about our language,” agreed

The associated press

People participate in a candlelight vigil for Rutgers University freshman Tyler Clementi at Brower Commons on the Rutgers campus in New Brunswick, N.J. Clementi jumped off Michael LaSala, professor at the Rutgers University School of Social Work, whether it’s outright slurs like “faggot” or phrases like “that’s so gay.” “A lot of people who use those terms casually do not mean to put down gay people, but they need to understand that they are,” he said, comparing them to racist terms “like the N-word.” Parents should also teach kids from a young age not to castigate “a boy who acts in a feminine manner or a girl who acts masculine,” LaSala said. “The message should be that even though people are different, they’re worthy of respect and acceptance.” • If you think your child

might be gay, it’s not necessarily wise to confront him or her. On the other hand, LaSala said, “you can create an environment where it’s acceptable” so that kids don’t feel the need to lie. “They need to disclose when they are ready,” said LaSala, who interviewed 65 lesbian and gay youth and their families about the coming-out process for a book that was published in June called, “Coming Out, Coming Home: Helping Families Adjust to a Gay or Lesbian Child.” “Kids may have gotten the message from society, from their peers, that they need to hide it,” he said. “If a parent is too forward and too proac-

tive, they can feel exposed. So it’s tricky.” Parents might also be on the lookout for situations where kids seem to be inviting the question — for example, a teen might make little effort to hide a relationship with someone of the same gender. Cepek’s son came out to him and his wife when he was in college. He had a stack of Christmas presents for someone named George, so his mom simply said, “This George must be very important to you.” “Don’t you know I’m gay?” was the response. • It’s not enough to raise kids who aren’t bullies. Kids must be taught to speak up if they’re being victimized or

if they know someone else is being victimized. “Sometimes kids think, ’There’s nothing I can do,”’ said Vanessa Gomez, a counselor who works with teens at Moreno Valley Community Learning Center, about 65 miles east of Los Angeles. But kids can be taught a variety of responses to bullying, said Gomez, president of the California Association of School Counselors, First, of course, “if you see a student making fun of someone else, don’t join in,” she said. Beyond that, she said, options include “confronting and being assertive and saying, ’That’s not cool, leave him alone!’ or reporting that behavior to a trusted adult. Or going up to the victim and saying, ’I saw what that guy did over there. Let’s come up with a plan to help so this doesn’t continue.”’ Adults must also help kids change the “code of silence” that labels them snitches if they tell adults what’s going on. “We can help students recognize that it’s courageous to tell,” she said. Gomez’s school district also offers kids the option of anonymously filling out “concerned persons forms” if they’re worried about a peer. Guidance counselors follow up with the child in question by saying, “someone really cares about you,” then assessing what intervention might be needed. Cepek added that sometimes kids who are bullied “don’t think they’re worth the trouble to redress an intolerable

situation. Parents need to let them know there are terrible, bigoted people out there who may act in a deplorable manner and that action is not a reflection on the child’s own worth or value.” “It’s hard because no child wants to portray themselves as being a victim of bullying to their family,” said Ann Haas, director of prevention projects for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. “So how can we start sending the message to our children very early that this is an OK topic to bring up? It’s not your fault if you’re bullied.” • Be aware that depression is the most common warning sign of suicidal behavior in adolescents, and that “bullying in the context of depression seems to place youth most at risk,” Haas said. Haas also said that suicidal behavior is often preceded by a change in mood or threats of self-harm. “You might notice a change in behavior — a person used to be outgoing, now they’re withdrawn, isolated,” said Gomez. “Maybe a person is making statements that ’Life would be better off without me.’ You’d be surprised how often students say, ’I’m going to kill myself.”’ Haas said that while depression is the most common factor leading to teen suicide, specific events may trigger suicidal behavior, “whether it’s something going on with family or at school or a peer’s comments on Facebook. Any number of events can precipitate suicide in someone with an underlying vulnerability.”

‘In the Kitchen with a Good Appetite’

Finished product 90 percent in your head, author says By Michele Kayal The Associated Press The pork ribs arrived in the CSA box. A quick dig through the fridge turned up a withering green tomato. An orange and the usual garlic and herbs sat a bit further back. “The way dishes come together in my head, they come together 90 percent,” says Melissa Clark, whose new book “In the Kitchen with a Good Appetite” (Hyperion, 2010) encourages playing with your food until it tastes good to you. “You say, ‘This is what I have in the fridge, this is what I’m hungry for, this is what I bought.”’ A dash of this, a squeeze of that, a sprinkle and a grind later, and Clark had a delectable pork dinner (you can find the recipe on her blog, This is called improvisation, and it scares a lot of people. But Clark swears anyone can do it. “You have to take that last 10 percent and make it your own,” she says. Here’s how: • Focus on balance — Complexity comes from balancing sweet, salt, acid and pungent. Sweet can be sugar, honey, hoisin. Salt can be capers, pickles, anchovies. Acid equals vinegar or citrus. Pungent is your garlic and onions. Some ingredients do double duty, like Clark’s orange, which provided both sweet and acid. Make sure each is represented in your dish and it’s hard to screw up. • Play with your proteins — Recipe calls for chicken but you’ve eaten it all week? Use pork instead. Or turkey. Try

Figgy, Piggy Drumsticks and Thighs lamb in place of beef. • Grind, squeeze, dash — Cooking integrates flavors, but it also softens them. So be sure to re-season when the dish comes off the heat. That could mean a grind of salt; a squeeze of citrus or a smidge of zest; a dash of hot sauce, vinegar, vermouth; or another flavor you like to help brighten the dish. • Start slow — Can you scramble an egg? So scramble one — and add a little cheese. Or tarragon. Or chorizo. “Whatever you’re confident

making, make it and take it to the next level,” Clark says. Just don’t experiment 30 minutes before a dinner party. • Trust yourself — Your palate is as good as anyone else’s. Honest. If you like a flavor, use it. • Always have a Plan B — It’s true, you might screw up. But what’s so bad about breakfast cereal for dinner now and then? “My emergency food is tomato on toast,” Clark says. “My husband has peanut butter.”

Figgy, Piggy Drumsticks and Thighs Start to finish: 40 minutes Servings: 4 8 strips bacon (8 ounces), halved 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced 3 each of chicken legs, drumsticks and thighs (about 2 1/2 pounds total) 1 teaspoon kosher salt Ground black pepper 11 or 12 fresh figs, halved or quartered if large 12 sprigs fresh thyme 2 tablespoons vermouth

1 tablespoon lemon juice Heat the oven to 500. In a large ovenproof skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon until crisp. Transfer the bacon to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Don’t drain the fat from the skillet. Add the garlic to the skillet and saute for 1 minute or so, or until the slices are pale golden. Transfer the garlic to the plate along with the bacon. Season the chicken with the salt and pepper.

Increase the heat under the skillet to medium-high until the fat begins to smoke. Add the chicken and cook until browned, 5 to 6 minutes. Flip the chicken and brown the other side, about 3 minutes. Scatter the figs and thyme over the chicken and transfer the skillet to the oven. Roast until the chicken is cooked through, about 20 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a serving platter. Stir the vermouth and lemon juice into the skillet, scraping up any brown bits on the bottom (be careful when touching the skillet handle; it will be hot). Place the skillet over medium heat until the juices thicken, about 3 minutes. Pour the pan sauce over the chicken, then garnish with the bacon and garlic.

Sizzling teriyaki sirloin tops off a salad with flavor, substance By J.M. Hirsch AP food editor The goal here was a flavorjammed salad that was simple, speedy and so good you don’t even need a dressing. So I started out by marinating thinly sliced beef in a power-packed marinade of teriyaki sauce, hoisin, cider vinegar, sugar and hot sauce. I liked eye round roast for the beef, but feel free to use any steak or other cut that will handle being thinly sliced and briefly grilled. The beef can sit in the marinade for as little or as long as you like. Once you pull it out, it goes on and off the grill in about 2 minutes. Throw it over some chopped romaine and sprinkle with crumbled blue

cheese and you pretty much need nothing else. But if you want to add some crunch, some purchased croutons would be a nice addition.

Teriyaki Sirloin Salad Start to finish: 45 minutes (20 minutes active) Servings: 4 1/2 cup prepared teriyaki sauce or marinade 1/2 cup hoisin sauce 2 tablespoons cider vinegar 1 tablespoon sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons hot sauce 1 1/2 pounds eye round roast, trimmed of fat and cut into 1/4-inch slices 2 large hearts of romaine, roughly chopped 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese 1 cup halved cherry or grape

tomatoes In a medium bowl, whisk together the teriyaki, hoisin, vinegar, sugar and hot sauce. Add the steak, turning to coat well, then cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, arrange the lettuce on 4 serving plates. Heat the grill to high. Coat the grates with cooking spray. Use tongs to transfer the steak, leaving as much of the marinade clinging to it as possible, to the grill. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes per side. Divide the steak between the serving plates, heaping it over the lettuce. Sprinkle with blue cheese. Divide the tomato halves between the salads.

KICK OFF football season with round-the-clock coverage.

By Jim Romanoff The Associated Press It’s always nice when you can prepare a healthy meal. It’s even better when you can do it using only a couple pots and pans, making cleanup a breeze. This recipe for roasted pork chops and peaches from Real Simple magazine features a sweet and savory topping cooked in the same skillet as the meat.

Skillet Pork Chops and Peaches 10-ounce package couscous 1 tablespoon olive oil 4 bone-in pork chops (about 2 pounds total), trimmed of visible fat (each 3/4-inch thick) 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt (divided) 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper (divided) 2 peaches, pitted and cut into wedges (or use canned) 1 small red onion, cut into thin wedges 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, torn into pieces

Skillet Pork Chops and Peaches Heat the oven to 400. Cook the couscous according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large ovenproof skillet over mediumhigh, heat the oil. Season the pork with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper and cook until browned, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer pork to plate. Return the skillet to the heat and add the peaches, onion, vinegar and the remaining salt and pepper. Cook, tossing, for 1 minute. Return the pork to the skillet. Transfer the skillet to the oven and roast until the pork is cooked through and the peaches are tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle with basil; serve with couscous.

The Vicksburg Post


Woman trying to stop affair she started two years ago Dear Abby: How do I get out of an affair that has been going on for two years? I started it at a bad time in my life — fights with my husband, the pressure of having three young kids, and a business we co-owned that was in financial difficulty. I know what I did was wrong. My husband doesn’t know, and I don’t think he suspects. I’m afraid if I end the affair, I will get blackmailed or found out. My lover refuses to end it. He wants me and thinks he can treat me better than my husband. Any advice? — Stuck in Hot Texas Dear Stuck: Just this. A man who “refuses to end it” and implies that he would blackmail or betray you is not someone you would ever want to spend your life with. It’s time to tell your husband everything — that you deeply



regret what you have done, why it happened, that you want to heal your marriage and be free of this barnacle who refuses to let go. The longer you wait, the more difficult it will be. Do it now. Dear Abby: My wife, “Marissa,” and I are expecting our first child. My sister “Patti” has a little boy whom we all love and adore. When Patti learned that we’re having a girl, she said we don’t “deserve” to have one because she has always wanted a daughter. Then Marissa added fuel to the fire with a few well-


BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Your mate or counterpart could be luckier than you, so if there is a toss-up as to whose ideas should be used, opt for his/hers. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Be careful what you say when socializing with co-workers. One among them could be looking for something to hang on the rest of you, and is anxious to carry back tales to the boss. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — When shopping for a certain item, don’t settle for something that is close to, but not quite, what you want. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Pick the brains of close associates or friends when hunting for critical information. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Someone you went out of your way to help, never expecting your kindness to be repaid, might pleasantly surprise you. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Continue to believe in luck when all else is coming up short, and it will pan out. Aries (March 21-April 19) — There is no need to allow competitive situations to intimidate you. You have some aces in the hole that you could play anytime you choose. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — As long as you keep the faith, substantial results are likely, so no matter what you’re doing or with whom you’re doing it, you should come out OK. Your only enemy is yourself. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Being cooperative benefits you as much as it does those with whom you share common interests, so don’t think you’re doing anybody but yourself any favors. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — When negotiating an agreement, the smartest thing you could do is to take yourself out of the picture. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — The more heads there are figuring things out, the quicker you’ll get a solution, but be sure to listen to everyone’s ideas. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Stick to doing business with the firms or people you’ve used for a long time, and you won’t be disappointed.

TWEEN 12 & 20

BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: Our high school offers a class on the social and physical damage to drug and alcohol abusers. Yesterday in class, a guest speaker discussed things that drivers do and don’t do when they are alcohol-impaired. I thought this information was extremely important and would like to share it with your teen readers. Will you please make this info available to them? — Brianne, Seattle. Brianne: Thanks for sharing this useful information. Drinking and driving form a deadly duo, and in many crashes due to driving impaired, it’s those who are innocent that pay the supreme price. Most drivers under the influence aren’t aware that they: • Forget to put the headlights on or to dim them for oncoming cars. • Change speed more often and make frequent lane changes. • Overshoot stop signs and ignore yellow lights at intersections. • Drift onto shoulders or straddle the center line as they change stations on the radio. • Pay less and less attention to the driving environment. • Are less able to anticipate dangers ahead. Dr. Wallace: My cousin in California is being “home taught” by his mother. How can this happen? I thought kids had to go to a school to be taught by a teacher who had graduated from college. My aunt, the teacher, attended a community college, but she does not have a degree. Is it possible she’s breaking the law for not sending her daughter to a public or private school? — Alexi, Greenville, Miss. Alexi: Home schooling is legal, and the number of students being taught at home is growing rapidly for various reasons. According to the National Home Education Research Institute, up to 1.7 million U.S. students were home-educated last year. Each state has educational requirements that must be fulfilled by the home-school parent. The home teacher, usually a parent, is not required to have a degree. In fact, in a study of U.S. home-schooling, the University of Maryland monitored 20,760 home-schooled students in all 50 states. It found that the achievement levels of homeschooled students were just as high whether or not the parent had a college degree. Parents select home school for their children for two main reasons: First, religious instruction can be offered. Second, the fear of violence, gangs, drugs, etc., is eliminated. It takes a truly dedicated parent to be a home teacher; some take on this job with their children from first through 12th grade. And many home-school students are top achievers. They often place well in national science, history and other contests. After all, they get instruction tailored to their individual needs and interests. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service. E-mail him at rwallace@Copley News Service.

chosen remarks of her own that she shared with friends and neighbors. I just want all of this to stop and I don’t know how to accomplish it. I’m upset with Patti for her behavior, and sad that my wife and sister are at odds. This is hurting everyone in the family. What should I do? — Stressed-Out Dad-to-Be Dear Stressed Out: Everyone needs to just calm down. Your wife and sister need to apologize to each other. Patti may have been joking when she said you don’t deserve to have a baby girl. What she may have meant — and overstated — was that she was experiencing a twinge of jealousy. Suggest to Marissa that your sister shouldn’t have been taken literally, and that she apologize to Patti for “snapping.” Ditto for your sister for

her tactlessness. Then remind your sister that we don’t live in a country with a one-child policy. If she wants to try for a daughter, she is free to do so, and in the meantime, she’ll have a sweet little niece to spoil. Dear Abby: My family moved to a new state last year. While there have been ups and downs, one of the things I miss most is my pets. Before we moved, we had a dog, a cat and some goldfish. Now we’re in an apartment and can’t afford all the fees associated with having pets. Also the apartment is too cramped to accommodate them. My son “Toby” is 2. He loved each of the animals. He’d watch the dog run around, pet the cat and stare at the fish. The cat slept in Toby’s nursery, the dog guarded him in his stroller, and the fish loved

him because he fed them. How can I encourage my son’s natural love of animals? A few hours playing with a cat or dog would be fine. — Petless In Maryland Dear Petless: Buy your son more goldfish. Read him stories about animals, and take him to the zoo as often as you can manage. His love of

animals has already begun and this will continue it to develop.

Vitamin E beneficial to body in many ways Dear Dr. Gott: Many years ago, I suffered from frequent cramps in my legs and toes, mostly at night. At the suggestion of an older relative, I took a vitamin E capsule, which she said would relieve the pain. Much to my surprise, the pain was gone about five minutes after taking it. Twelve years ago, I had radial-nerve surgery, which was successful. I was able to use my arm and hand without any problems. However, if I engaged in an activity such as playing cards or knitting, where my hand was in the same position for any length of time, my hand cramped up and was painful. I tried the vitamin E capsule (400 IU) twice a day and very rarely have cramping anywhere in my body. If I do have a problem, I take an extra capsule immediately with the same result. During a recent physical examination, I discussed this “remedy” with my doctor, who also reads your columns, and he said he thought you might be interested in this remedy. He said he had no idea why it works but since it does, to continue with the regimen, as this relatively small dose will not harm me. Because it is a blood thinner, I have been advised to stop taking it seven to 10 days prior to any surgery. I am a 78-year-old Caucasian woman; however, I assume age and race have nothing to do with the results that I have had. I hope this will work as well for others. Dear Reader: Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin with antioxidant properties. It is used for the treatment and prevention of many health conditions. In fact, research remains ongoing regarding its value in treating heart conditions, Parkinson’s, diabetes, anemia, cancer and a host of other diseases and disorders. However, no conclusive studies are available for these and other conditions. The recommended longterm daily allowance of E is between 15 and 20 IU daily; however, many experts claim it is safe when consumed in larger amounts. Deficiency of E is rare with a proper diet that includes broccoli, spinach, kiwi, fortified cereals, whole grains, fruits, vegetables and vegetable oils, and also because it is stored in the body for extended periods of time. There is concern regarding the safety of E in high doses because of the potential for an increased risk of bleeding, particularly in patients on anticoagulants or with a vitamin K deficiency. Excesses have been known to also cause headache, fatigue, blurred vision, diarrhea, flatulence and bloating. If your physician thinks the 800 IU daily regimen is OK for you, stick with it, especially if it relieves your pain.



Other readers should consider a modification in their diet and a discussion with their primary-care physician before taking the supplement. Medications, even those available over the counter, can interact adversely. The safest bet is to get the go-ahead first rather than backtrack after the fact.

Blues marker to be dedicated in Jackson A Mississippi Blues Trail marker will be unveiled Thursday in downtown Jackson to honor what was one of the first businesses to offer professional recording technology. The marker will honor Scott Radio Service Company, which was used by Jackson-based Trumpet Record Label for its first sessions with blues artists from 1950 to 1952. The business closed in the 1970s. The company focused on radio repair and service, and later on television as technology changed, but its association with Trumpet Records earned owner Ivan M. Scott a niche in blues history. Although many recording studios were using tape in the early 1950’s, Scott recorded music on a disc-cutting machine for the Trumpet sessions.

‘The Situation’ sent packing on ‘Dancing’ Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is headed back to the Jersey shore. The reality star with the chiseled abs was eliminated from “Dancing With the Stars” Tuesday. He and professional partner Karina Smirnoff came into the show in last place after performing an Argentine tango Monday that one judge called “a terrible mess.” “It was consistent,” said head judge Len Goodman. “It was bad throughout.” Sorrentino said Tuesday that Mike “The Situation” Sorrenhe was committed to the con- tino Karina Smirnoff perform on “Dancing with the Stars.” test and had given it his all. “I told myself if I got eliminated today, I put it all on the floor last night,” he said. “So if it (happened), I’d bow out gracefully.” He also said he thought the judges’ scores were unfair. “The judges were so unpositive and didn’t even see the work I put in, didn’t even see the progress I made this week and you know what, you know what? I’m done with this,” a frustrated Sorrentino said in a clip shot Monday that was shown during Tuesday’s episode. Judges’ scores are combined with viewer votes to determine which couple is ousted each week. Sorrentino, 29, joins previously eliminated contestants David Hasselhoff, Michael Bolton and Margaret Cho.

Band arrested after blocking freeway A rock band will have to face the music after blocking a Los Angeles freeway and performing atop its trailer. California Highway Patrol spokesman Rick Quintero said a big box van decorated with the Imperial Stars’ logo stopped on the southbound U.S. 101 near Sunset Boulevard at about 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, blocking four of the five lanes. The driver took the keys and fled in another car, then three musicians climbed on top of the van and began to perform. Quintero said they were arrested and the truck was finally towed away around noon after causing a mile-long traffic jam. Quintero said the musicians could face charges of obstructing traffic. The group, whose credits include “Traffic Jam 101,” said on its website it is dedicated to helping homeless children.

Seinfeld finds himself directing on Broadway NEW YORK (AP) — One word seems to best describe Jerry Seinfeld’s role as a Broadway director: reluctant. The TV and stand-up star said he began helping comedian Colin Quinn develop material for what would become Quinn’s one-man stage show “Long Story Short” and then got roped into directing a work that traces global events from the caveman to the digital age in just 75 minutes. “There is very little performance comedy that works on his intellectual level. He’s one of these guys that can do it. It just needed a form,” Seinfeld said during a press event Tuesday to publicize the show. “I kind of challenged him to come up with a form and he did. And then once he did, I was kind of stuck getting involved with it.” In the show, Quinn — the former host of MTV’s late1980s game show “Remote Control” and a “Saturday Night Live” cast member — takes audiences through the history of the world, highlighting why empires always seem to fail. “This show is about how human nature just steps in every time and ruins everything,” he said. The show debuted off-Broadway this summer to generally good reviews and now goes on Broadway at the Helen Hayes

The associated press

Colin Quinn, left, and Jerry Seinfeld speak at a news conference in New York Tuesday. Theatre for an 11-week run starting Oct. 22. Seinfeld and Quinn, who met decades ago while working comedy clubs, said collaborating on this project was easy since they both know standup and have complementary talents. “I’m very smart about being funny and he’s very funny about being smart,” said Seinfeld. “He’s really a smart guy that figured out how to be funny, and I’m smart about

taking funny and figuring out how to pace it and organize it. So it was a good blend of skills.” Quinn has been testing slivers of the show’s material for years, but found comedy clubs weren’t the best venues for intellectual humor. “They’ll stay with you for about 30 minutes. Then they’re like, ‘All right, c’mon. Will somebody talk about the lower half of the body, please? We get it: You’re smart,”’ he said.

The one-man show is constantly being tweaked to add or remove topical elements. “We don’t want it to end. At some point, it’ll end. But it’s fun to keep playing with it. It’s like a car — you keep tuning it,” Seinfeld said. Asked how he knew what was funny on stage, Seinfeld deadpanned: “I had a sitcom in the ’90s,” he said.

‘Eyebrow Queen of the world’ returns to roots BUCHAREST, Romania (AP) — What do Brooke Shields, Catherine Deneuve, and David Beckham have in common? Eyebrows — plucked, waxed, and groomed by Anastasia Soare, the Romanian immigrant who rose from being an 14-hour-a day employee in a Los Angeles beauty parlor to “Eyebrow Queen of the World,” as she is known in Hollywood. Two decades after she arrived in the U.S., Soare is living the American dream. This week she came home to share a bit of that dream with Romanians — opening her first European salon in Bucharest. She has an empire of 800 outlets in the U.S. and 600 overseas, including brow salons in Japan, Thailand and Hong Kong. Perhaps the biggest measure of her stardom: she’s been on the Oprah Winfrey show. Soare’s interest in brows is in fact a passion for the living architecture of the face — plus a talent for spotting and exploiting a niche in the lucrative beauty business. The petite Romanian with flowing caramel locks grew up in the Black Sea port of Constanta during the grim communist era. The daughter of tailors, Soare left in the dying months of Nicolae Ceausescu’s regime to join her then husband,

Anastasia Soare a ship captain, who had defected to the West about three years earlier. In her spare time, she studied Leonardo Da Vinci to learn about facial anatomy and symmetry, and even went to Arizona to take classes with a forensic scientist who works in facial reconstruction. “Living in Constanta under communism, we did not have the ethnic diversity that I then encountered in America,” she said on Monday. Her first celebrity client was 1980s supermodel Cindy Crawford. Naomi Campbell, also a model, has entrusted her brows to Soare’s skilled hands for the past 18 years. When a reporter laments the fact that she does not have the sweeping brows of Romanian women, Soare explains it is

due to the width of the brow bone. Romanians tend to have wider brow bones, while women of north European origin tend to have narrower faces and therefore shorter brows. Signed magazine covers and photos adorn the newly opened salon in Bucharest’s swanky Radisson hotel. Madonna and her entourage stayed there during her Sticky and Sweet tour in 2009. Clients Winfrey, Claudia Schiffer, Jade Pinkett, a smiling Heidi Klum, Catherine Deneuve, and even a man with inch-thick bushy brows, gaze down at clients. “It’s like I have come a full circle; it’s 21 years since I left,” Soare says, sitting in the window seat of her small salon, called simply ‘Anastasia.’ “In 1990, there were no services catering for eyebrows in Hollywood,” she says, speaking rapidly in faintly accented American English. A tweeze, wax and groom doesn’t come cheap in recession-mired Romania where the average monthly wage is about $625. It’s $50 for women and $33 for men. Delicately packaged products, from eyebrow serum, a brow kit (containing stencils and tweezers and makeup), to eyebrow gels and scissors will set the consumer back even more.

Porn outlets halt production after HIV diagnosis LOS ANGELES (AP) — California’s multibillion-dollar adult entertainment industry has been left reeling after another positive HIV test for a porn actor. The revelation Tuesday led to two of the industry’s biggest companies shutting down production and a scramble to find partners who might have been exposed by the actor, whose identity and gender have not

been released. The actor was a patient of the Adult Industry Medical Healthcare Foundation, a San Fernando Valley clinic that caters to pornographic actors. Clinic spokeswoman Jennifer Miller said that efforts are under way to notify individuals who may have had sexual contact with the actor. Wicked Pictures and Vivid Entertainment said that they

stopped production as a precaution when the positive test was revealed. Los Angeles County public health officials and state occupational health officials have said the widespread lack of condom use on porn sets puts performers at risk for contracting HIV and other diseases.

Adult film producers say viewers find them to be a turnoff. Last year, a woman tested positive for HIV immediately after making an adult film, and in 2004, an HIV outbreak affecting several actors spread panic in the industry and briefly shut down productions at several California studios.

Sidelines USM’s Smith is done for the season

HATTIESBURG (AP) — Southern Miss linebacker Martez Smith is out for the season after tearing ligaments in his left knee during Saturday’s 44-43 loss to East Carolina. Smith, a 6-foot-0, 222-pound fifth-year senior, is fourth on the team with 27 tackles, including three for a loss. He injured the knee while making a tackle on special teams, and an MRI this week confirmed the ligament damage. Southern Miss (4-2, 1-1) travels to face Memphis (15, 0-3) on Saturday.

Just about every day for the past year when the weather was good, 10-yearold Karley Whittington got off the school bus and walked over to Clear Creek Golf Course in Bovina to work on her game. And she has got serious game. This weekend, she’ll join Warren County’s three better-known junior golfers — Parker Rutherford, Nick Mekus and Chris Ingram — at Madison’s Lake Caroline Golf Course for the Mississippi Junior Golf Organization’s Cup matches, an event better known as the Junior Ryder Cup. The matches will pit juniors in various age groups in teams of 12 against the Arnold Palmer team. For Rutherford, 16, this will be his fourth time to play on the Jack Nicklaus Cup team. For Mekus, 15, this will be his third time to play in the event while Ingram, 18, and Whittington will make their debuts. Rutherford says Whittington is the real deal. “She can out-putt any of us,” Rutherford said. The Bowmar Elementary fifth grader took up golf in the past year. She was a softball player for three years. “I quit softball. Golf is more fun,” Whittington said. Being able to play as an individual seems to suit her, even though she’ll be on the same Nicklaus team as Rutherford, Mekus and Ingram, albeit with 10 to 12year-old girls. “It’s fun to play by myself,” Whittington said. This summer, she played in 10 junior girls events and won the Randy Watkins Tournament in Jackson. “I came in second and third a lot,” Whittington said. According to the MGO’s youth rankings, Whittington finished No. 1 in points in her 10 to 12-year-olds age group. More distance off the tee has been a key, but Whittington likes the short game better. “Probably irons is what I like best,” she said. “I just

GOLF got some USGA kid series irons. I love my irons.” Clear Creek golf pro Kent Smith said Whittington is hitting the ball better. “She’s gone from hitting about 150-yard drives to now 175,” Smith said. Whittington also credits the three guys for her improvement. “They’ve been really nice,” she said. “They let me play with them in the putting contest. Chris Ingram has helped me a lot in practice and in the tournaments, too.” For Ingram, it was all about helping his game, as well. Two weeks ago, he, Rutherford and Mekus played in the junior pro-am at the Viking Classic at the Annandale Golf Course.

Golf course Tuesday. The four golfers will compete in the Junior Ryder Cup this weekend at Lake Caroline in Madison.

Though he ranked 13th and just outside the top 12 qualifying level, he got in because one of the 12 qualified in his 16-to-18 age division dropped out. Ingram will play again at the MGO’s Cup matches. “Who did you take out?” Rutherford quipped. Ingram could only smile. “I credit my hard work and determination,” Ingram answered. The three guys are no strangers to team golf. Mekus and Ingram are staples in the St. Aloysius golf program while Rutherford is the mainstay at Warren Central. All four players have played at Lake Caroline, but Rutherford and Mekus know it best. “It’s kind of long in spots, a couple of long par 4s,”

Rutherford said. Mekus said just the oppposite in that Lake Caroline has plenty of opportunities. “It has some short par 5s. No. 11 and 12 are really short,” Mekus said. Rutherford, who in July played in the Warren County Cup for the Vicksburg Country Club, has gotten a lot of experience playing in these Ryder Cup style events. “On Saturday, it’s a fourball, and on Sunday, it’s single play,” Rutherford said. “I still like the singles matches better.” Rutherford finished sixth this summer in the MGO’s 14 to 15-year-old boys standings. Like Whittington, he won the Randy Watkins Tournament in Jackson. Mekus was 10th in the 14-15s standings.

NEW ORLEANS — The New Orleans Saints decided they needed a new running back more than two field goal kickers. Hoping to boost a running game that ranks 31st in the NFL through five games, the Saints on Tuesday signed former Seattle running back Julius Jones and released 46-year-old kicker John Carney. Carney signed with the Saints in late September to fill in for struggling kicker Garrett Hartley — who was inacJulius tive the past Jones two weeks but now is poised to reclaim the job with Carney’s departure. Carney made five of six field goal attempts in two games, missing the final one — from 29 yards out — late in the third quarter of the Saints’ 30-20 loss at Arizona on Sunday. Jones was the Seahawks’ leading rusher the past two seasons, gaining 663 yards last season and 698 yards in 2008. The Saints are averaging only 75.6 yards rushing per game. They have played the last three games without Reggie Bush, who is recovering from a broken bone in his right leg, and the last two games without Pierre Thomas, who hurt his left ankle. Veteran Ladell Betts and undrafted rookie Chris Ivory have gotten all the work at running back the last two games, and Saints coach Sean Payton said as recently as Monday that he had no plans to look for another option at the position. “These are guys that we have a lot of confidence in,” Payton said Monday of Betts and Ivory.

Braves likely to replace Cox with Gonzalez MLB

By The Associated Press ATLANTA — Bobby Cox strolled into the Atlanta Braves clubhouse around lunchtime Tuesday with that familiar waddle, only this time he was wearing his new uniform: A blue golf shirt and slacks. The duds of retirement. “Are y’all still here?” he jokingly yelled toward the handful of players who had returned to clean out their lockers, not even 24 hours removed from a season-ending loss in the NL division series. On the first day of the rest of his life, Cox still had plenty of loose ends to tie up. First up was a meeting with general manager Frank Wren, probably to start graphing out his new consulting role with the organization. At some point, he’ll have to pack up his office to make room for the next guy. As strange as it seems, someone besides ol’ No. 6 will be occupying that spot next season — and all signs pointed to former Flor-

On D3 Texas advances to ALCS ida manager Fredi Gonzalez. “It’s still hard to believe he’s not going to be the manager come Fredi Gonzalez spring training,” Chipper Jones said of Cox. Wren made it clear he’s already got a timeframe in mind to name Cox’s successor. Gonzalez has seemed the most obvious choice since he was fired in June after 31⁄2 years as the Marlins manager, having posted a respectable record of 276-279 with one of baseball’s lowerpayroll teams but apparently running afoul of owner Jeffrey Loria for benching star shortstop Hanley Ramirez for a lack of hustle. Gonzalez was a minor

league manager in the Braves organization and did an apprenticeship as Cox’s third-base coach from 200306. He still lives in suburban Atlanta, remained tight with Cox and frequently turned up at Turner Field after being dumped by the Marlins. The Braves are likely to act quickly — Wren, after all, has known for more than a year that this would be Cox’s final season. Several media outlets reported that Atlanta will announce Gonzalez as its choice Thursday, one day after Cox holds a farewell news conference. The Braves had no comment on the reports, but Gonzalez would be a popular choice in the clubhouse and ensure a fairly smooth transition from a guy who’s been managing the team since 1990. Major League Baseball discourages major announcements from being made during the postseason, unless they are scheduled between rounds. The last See Braves, Page D3.

from staff & AP reports

NFL NFL reviewing catch rule CHICAGO — The NFL expects to review the catch rule that cost Lions receiver Calvin Johnson a potential winning touchdown in a season-opening loss to Chicago. The play was ruled a no-catch. After Johnson went to the turf with possession, he placed the ball on the ground as he ran to celebrate. It’s been one of the season’s most discussed — and dissed — calls. The competition committee will meet after the Super Bowl and then suggest any rules changes to team owners at the league’s spring meetings in March.

NBA Wade set to return from hamstring pull MIAMI — The first step of Dwyane Wade’s recovery from a strained right hamstring seems complete. Wade has resumed some light exercise and will likely begin what the Miami Heat call “extensive court work” in about a week. There is a chance Wade will return to play before the preseason ends. He pulled the hamstring very early in Miami’s preseason opener and has been rehabbing since. Miami’s preseason finale is Oct. 22 against Orlando. The Heat open the regular season in Boston on Oct. 26.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL Washington State suspends two after marijuana bust PULLMAN, Wash. — Washington State football coach Paul Wulff suspended two players who were arrested after Pullman police found 38 marijuana plants growing in the house the players and two other people rented. Jamal Atofau, a freshman backup linebacker, and Andre Barrington, a freshman who is academically ineligible this semester, were arrested along with the two others. Wulff said he is gathering facts and is not jumping to conclusions. Wulff said the suspensions do not necessarily mean the players will be kicked off the team. All four people arrested were booked and released from jail.

AUTO RACING Stewart gets new sponsor KANNAPOLIS, N.C. — Tony Stewart announced a partnership with ExxonMobil that fills the primary sponsorship holes on his race car for next season. The announcement was made two days after Stewart’s win at California, which cut his deficit in the title race to a manageable 107 points. There are six races remaining in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, and Stewart is seeking his third NASCAR title. The multiyear contract with ExxonMobil will put its Mobil 1 brand on the hood of Stewart’s No. 14 Chevrolet for 11 races as primary sponsor. It will share main sponsorship duties on the No. 14 Chevrolet with Office Depot.

Simms completes 40 passes with 29 for first downs, also an NFL record. 2001 — Georgia Southern fullback Adrian Peterson is held to 71 yards rushing, snapping his NCAA-record streak of 36 straight regular-season games with at least 100 yards.

Lee lifts Texas to ALCS ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The Texas Rangers mobbed Cliff Lee in front of the pitcher’s mound before trotting off to the clubhouse for a celebration 50 seasons in the making. Champagne was on ice, but first the AL West champions slipped on red t-shirts, fitted themselves with goggles and toasted the first playoff series victory in franchise history with plastic bottles of ginger ale. The bubbly flowed only after Josh Hamilton left the room. The major league batting champion, who overcame alcohol and drug problems to revive his career, appreciated the show of support. “I’m speechless. This is so unbelievable,” Hamilton said Tuesday night after the Rangers beat Tampa Bay 5-1 in the decisive Game 5 of the AL division series. “For my teammates to under-


stand why I can’t be part of the celebration, for them to adapt it, it’s amazing,” he added. “It shows a lot about them.” Cliff Lee added another impressive line to his sparkling October resume, striking out 11 in a six-hitter that stopped the Rays from finishing an improbable comeback in a series in which the road team won every game — a first in major league history. “It was a lot of fun, I know that much,” Lee said. “We had our back against the wall today and we came out and performed.” The Rangers will host the defending champion Yankees in the opener of the best-ofseven ALCS on Friday night. Texas’ three previous playoff appearances ended with firstround losses to New York, in 1996, ’98 and ’99. The teams split eight games

during the regular season, including Texas’ three-game sweep at home in September. Lee beat the Yankees twice in last year’s World Series for Philadelphia. “It’s something a lot of these guys have never been a part of, I’ve never been a part of, so it’s exciting,” Hamilton said. “We’ll be ready.” Ian Kinsler hit a two-run homer in the ninth inning for Texas, the only active major league franchise that hadn’t won a playoff series. Lee improved to 6-0 with a 1.44 ERA and three complete games in seven career postseason starts, striking out 54 and walking six in 561⁄3 innings. He had 21 strikeouts and no walks in 16 innings against Tampa Bay. “I don’t think you can ask any more of a guy,” Rangers manager Ron Washington said. The left-hander, acquired

from Seattle in July, allowed just two baserunners after working through a thirdinning jam and retired his final nine batters. “He was the Cliff Lee that everybody is used to seeing and he got the job done tonight,” said Rays outfielder Carl Crawford, who might have played his last game with Tampa Bay because he can become a free agent after the World Series. When B.J. Upton popped out to shortstop for the final out, Lee didn’t even watch the ball drop into Elvis Andrus’ glove. He simply walked toward catcher Bengie Molina and the two hugged as Rangers players poured onto the field to mob them. “It’s a dream come true,” said outfielder Jeff Francoeur, who was acquired in a trade from the New York Mets on Aug. 31.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A piece of debris clung to the grill of Jimmie Johnson’s car a mere 17 laps into the race at Auto Club Speedway, and for a bit, it appeared the four-time defending NASCAR champion was in some rare trouble. As the garbage flapped off the front of his Chevrolet, the temperatures climbed to levels high enough to cause concern for Johnson and his Hendrick Motorsports team. It also created some wishful thinking from the championship contenders eager to see Johnson suffer a stroke of bad luck. Alas, it wasn’t to be. A pit stop 21 laps later gave his crew a chance to clean the grill, and Johnson set sail for a third-place finish. Not so for many of his challengers, who one-by-one suffered through championship-crippling crisis during Sunday’s race. Now Johnson again sits atop the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship standings, and the list of drivers capable of dethroning him is dwindling. What was one of the tightest Chases in its seven year history at the start of the race — nine drivers were separated by 101 points — was blown open three hours later when the checkered flag fell. The unraveling began with a disastrous day for Roush-

Greg Biffle’s engine expired 40 laps into the race, and a week after using a win at Kansas to get back into the title hunt, his chances had blown up in a plume of white smoke. Th e n t e a m m at e Ca r l Edwards, the strongest of the three Roush contenders, had a problem with his ignition box that sent him to the garage for repairs. He finished 34th and dropped three spots in the standings to seventh. Matt Kenseth had a decent run most of Sunday, then his Roush engine had a late problem that sent him to a 30thplace finish. “That probably took all three of us out for a legitimate shot in one race, so that’s really disappointing,” Kenseth said. Jeff Gordon and Kevin Har-

vick were both flagged for speeding on pit road, drawing costly penalties that forced them to work doubletime for their top-10 finishes. Kyle Busch’s engine failed late in the race, causing him to declare his shot at the title over, and older brother, Kurt, was wrecked by David Ragan with seven laps remaining to wipe out his shot at a top-10 finish. When the carnage was over, the field had been widened to only three drivers within 85 points of Johnson. Tony Stewart, the winner, shaved 20 points off of his deficit but sits fifth in the standings, 107 points out. So why is it that Johnson is seemingly able to hit cruise control during the Chase and coast to title after title while his challengers suffer through a myriad of mistakes, mechanical failures and bad breaks? The answer is complex. To start, the 10 Chase tracks suit Johnson and his team. He’s won at nine of the 10 venues, and has a combined 30 career victories at Chase tracks. His crew chief, Chad Knaus, has the luxury of having a team so good that making the Chase is not a question. It gives Knaus the opportunity to spend much of the “regular season” fine-tuning for the final 10-race push. But most important, in

Jimmie Johnson celebrates after winning a race at Dover International Speedway earlier this season. racing, teams tend to make their own luck. Johnson is so often in a comfortable position that he and the No. 48 team can approach each race as business as usual. There’s no risk-taking, no need to get aggressive on the track, and no point in experimenting with new setups or equipment. He’s not often in position to be racing like a mad man for a strong finish, something that cost Kurt Busch in two Chase races so far this season. Johnson doesn’t have to try to stretch a final tank of fuel to the finish line, as Stewart failed to do in the opener at New Hampshire.

ist Peter Moylan and the bullpen looks in good hands. “It’s been the strength of our club,” Wren said. “Pitching is the hardest thing to get, and we have it.” Other than hiring a new manager, the top priority for the offseason is clear. The Braves desperately need a power-hitting outfielder — preferably right-handed — to bolster a lineup that was shaky at best and had no chance after season-ending injuries to Jones and All-Star infielder Martin Prado. Atlanta batted .175 and scored only nine runs in its four-game loss to San Francisco in the playoffs. Jones, who had considered retiring, changed his mind after going down with a knee injury. He hopes to be at close to full strength by the start of spring training and would presumably reclaim third base. That would send Prado back to second and free up Omar Infante, perhaps the team’s biggest surprise, to go wherever he’s needed. Infante wound up third in the NL in hitting (.321) and can play six positions. He even threw out the possibility of moving to center field, a weak spot for the Braves ever since they parted ways with Andruw Jones.

Braves pitcher Jair Jurrjens said he hopes the next manager is in the same mold as Cox, who didn’t ask much of his players beyond working hard and showing up on time. If they followed those two simple rules (and abided by a couple of other minor pet peeves: No loud music or using cell phones in the clubhouse), they knew Cox had their back. “When you come in here now, you know what kind of rules you have,” Jurrjens said. “You hope it’s not going to be different, just the same type of guy, someone who lets us do our thing and have fun. I don’t want a sergeant to come in here with a bunch of rules.” Cox’s successor will inherit a team that has one of baseball’s best pitching staffs. The rotation is in good hands with 17-game winner Tim Hudson, Derek Lowe, Tommy Hanson and Jurrjens. Even though closer Billy Wagner is retiring along with Cox, a trio of promising rookies emerged this season: Jonny Venters (1.95 ERA, 93 strikeouts in 83 innings), Craig Kimbrel (0.44 ERA, 40 Ks in 202⁄3 innings) and Mike Dunn (1.89 ERA).
