Employees at Ameristar Casino spent 16 days on edge last spring — from the moment the Mississippi River was projected to hit a new record height in Vicksburg until it crested May 19 a few hairs below that mark. “We had a lot of sleepless nights in here,” said George Stadler, the Washington Street casino’s senior vice president and general manger. If a new barrier under construction holds any water, Stadler is confident the facility’s workers and supervisors should sleep more comfortably. “I think we’re in pretty good shape,” he said. A mountain of gravel and dirt visible on the main casino’s river side will become part of a 4-foot steel-andconcrete addition to Ameristar’s flood wall — left intact but severely tested by the river’s 57.1-foot crest in Vicksburg. An earthen levee topped with sandbags and a concrete block wall was built in the weeks before the river crested. The previous wall protected the casino only to the 1927 flood mark, which was surpassed by ninetenths of a foot. “When Ameristar was built in 1993, it was built to the 100-year flood plain level. Obviously, as we’ve seen, it went well beyond that,” Stadler said. The main casino was placed on a concrete foundation in 2007. Crews with Hayward Baker Inc. should complete the higher wall in six months, which will not affect parking for the gen-

Two say not guilty in kidnap, slaying By Holbrook Mohr The Associated Press

Workers at Ameristar Casino build up flood protection on the river side of the Casino this morning. eral public, Stadler said, adding some of the leftover material from the temporary wall will be used to build the new one. Ameristar and Riverwalk casino, which was built

slightly higher than this year’s new benchmark flood, remained open during the river’s rise. DiamondJacks Casino closed for 36 days before it reopened June 15. Rainbow Casino reopened

May 27 after a two-week closure. The former Horizon Casino was closed for renovations between midMarch and June 2, when it reopened as Grand Station Casino.

JACKSON — Two Louisiana inmates pleaded not guilty Wednesday to federal charges that they kidnapped and killed an Ohio man in Mississippi after they escaped from a prison work program. Ricky Wedgeworth, 36, and Darian “Drake” Pierce, 34, could face the death penalty if convicted. They were indicted Sept. 8 on charges of kidnapping resulting in death, carjacking, conspiracy and transporting a stolen vehicle related to the abduction and death of David Cupps, 53, of Sunbury, Ohio, near Columbus. Authorities have said Cupps was staying at a Vicksburg hotel while working in Claiborne County to inspect Grand Gulf nuclear power plant. Officials have said the two attacked Cupps in a parking lot on Pemberton Square Boulevard so they could take his rental car. The two men are charged with kidnapping Cupps and dumping his body in Bessemer, Ala. Cupps was beaten and strangled. There was an intense search for the inmates in several SouthSee Inmates, Page A9.

COMMISSION DECISION

Walkboards to old bridge will be covered By Danny Barrett Jr. dbarrett@vicksburgpost.com New walkboards along the east-west rail line on the old U.S. 80 bridge will be covered, the Vicksburg Bridge Commission decided Wednesday. The five-member panel held back $27,864 from a

$660,712 repair bill for 1,500 new crossties, boards and smaller parts along the rails, citing Kansas City Southern had billed and showed up with improperly sized boards that were metal and not timber. Removable boards with metal gratings that fit between the rail and the

old roadbed were installed, but it wasn’t reflected in the bill until this month, superintendent Herman Smith said. “It matches what we have now,” he said. Commissioners took the vote in closed session after See Bridge, Page A9.

Congressmen seek probe over debit-card fees By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Members of Congress are asking the Justice Department to investigate whether Bank of America and other major banks improperly worked together to charge customers new monthly fees for using their debit cards.

Rep. Peter Welch, D-Vt., and four other Democrats said they’ve asked Attorney General Eric Holder to open a probe into possible collusion by the banks. Bank of America said last month that it would charge its customers $5 a month if they use their debit cards for purchases, a move that

sparked public outrage. The nation’s largest bank said it instituted the monthly charge because the government capped the fees it can charge merchants for swiping the debit cards. Chase and Wells Fargo are testing $3 monthly debitcard fees in select markets.

A Vicksburg man was taken to University Medical Center in Jackson after being struck with a golf club by a juvenile acquaintance around 7:20 p.m Wednesday, Lt. Bobby Stewart said. Louis Taylor, 24, 2958 Valley St., told police he was visiting in the 200 block of Pearl Street when he argued with his girlfriend over the telephone. After Taylor walked outside a short time later, the 15- to16-year-old boy came around the corner, swung a golf club and hit him above his left eye, causing a 3-inch cut, Stewart said. Taylor gave police the juvenile’s name, but police had not yet located the teen, who was expected to be charged with aggravated assault, Stewart said. Stewart said it was unclear if there was a connection between Taylor’s girlfriend and the youth. Taylor refused medical treatment at the scene but later went to River Region Medical Center and was transferred to UMC, Stewart said. Hospital spokes-

Earl Rodney Jones, 26, 1900 Baldwin Ferry Road, Apt. 12B, was driving his 1997 Buick Regal when he was stopped by deputies at 10 p.m. for a traffic violation at U.S. 80 and Buck Drive, Pace said. A search of the vehicle turned up a paper bag containing about 2 ounces of marijuana, the sheriff said. A passenger was turned over to city authorities for an outstanding misdemeanor warrant, and Jones was being held without bond pending an initial hearing today, said Pace.

The Vicksburg Post

on the campaign trail

Poll finds Gov. Jindal has overwhelming lead BATON ROUGE (AP) — Gov. Bobby Jindal is poised to win an easy victory in the Oct. 22 election, according to a new poll released Wednesday. It shows the governor with 57 percent support from the voters surveyed, compared to 15 percent for all nine of his opponents combined. The poll was conducted by Washington-based Clarus Research Group for WWL-TV in New Orleans. The closest candidate to the Republican governor was middle school teacher Tara Hollis, who picked up support from 5 percent of those surveyed. Hollis, from the north Louisiana town of Haynesville, has been campaigning for five months. But she’s an outsider to the political establishment and has been unable to drum up the cash needed to challenge a sitting governor with a multimillion dollar campaign account. “Jindal will win a significant victory,” said pollster Ron Faucheux, president of Clarus Research Group. “I think there’s a good chance that he’ll have the largest gubernatorial election since the open elections system was put into place.” When Jindal wasn’t placed against a list of other candidates, 53 percent of respon-

dents said they would vote to re-elect him to a second term, and only 29 percent said they were looking for someone else to support. He had strong support from white voters, but 61 percent of black voters said they intended to vote for someone besides Jindal. Jindal said he’ll be thrilled if he receives 50 percent of the vote next weekend, plus one — the margin needed to avoid a November runoff. But he said he’s not taking the outcome for granted. “I’m obviously going to fight and work for every vote between now and Election Day. We’re not going to stop working,” the governor said. The poll of 602 likely voters across Louisiana was conducted from Oct. 5 through Friday. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points. It was paid for by WWL-TV, KLFY in Lafayette and KNOE in Monroe. Sixty-three percent of the voters surveyed said they approve of Jindal’s performance, with his highest marks coming for strong leadership and his economic development efforts. Jindal’s lowest mark came when voters were asked if they thought the governor was improving public education; only 45 percent of those polled said yes.

Bilingual voting ballots ordered for 10 counties in Mississippi WASHINGTON — In the run-up to the 2012 elections, the federal government is ordering that 248 counties, including 10 in Mississippi, and other political jurisdictions provide bilingual ballots to Hispanics and other minorities who speak little or no English. That number is down from a decade ago following the 2000 census, which covered 296 counties in 30 states. The requirements are mandated under the Voting Rights Act. Effective this week, more American Indian tribal languages will be made available in many parts of Alaska, Arizona and Mississippi, while Vietnamese and Taiwanese will get their own voting assistance in several new areas, including parts of Washington state, Texas, Massachusetts and California. Asian Bangladeshi must be provided for the first time in Hamtramck, Mich, which neighbors Detroit. The counties affected in Mississippi are Attala, Jackson, Jones, Kemper, Leake, Neshoba, Newton, Noxubee, Scott and Winston. Hispanics who don’t speak English proficiently will be entitled to Spanish-language election material in urban areas of political battleground states including Pennsylvania, Virginia, Wisconsin and Utah, as well as the entire states of California, Florida and Texas. For the first time, people from India will get election material in their native language, in voting precincts in Los Angeles, Chicago and New York, due to their fast population growth. The Voting Rights Act provision, first approved by Congress in 1975, requires states, counties and political subdivisions to supply versions of ballots and election materials in other languages.

Obama raises $70M for White House run WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama’s campaign raised more than $70 million combined for his reelection and the Democratic party during the summer, an amount that gives him a clear advantage over his Republican rivals but is less than his initial fundraising

politics

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS effort. The fundraising total announced today exceeds a goal set by the campaign of $55 million combined for the July-Sep- President Barack Obama tember fundraising period but is about $16 million less than Obama raised during the April-June quarter. Obama campaign manager Jim Messina said in an e-mail to supporters that more than 600,000 people donated to the campaign in the most recent quarter, more than the previous three months. He said more than 980,000 people have given money to the campaign, and in the most recent quarter, 98 percent of the donors gave $250 or less, with an average donation of $56.

Cochran endorses Romney for president JACKSON, Miss. — Thad Cochran, Mississippi’s senior U.S. senator, is endorsing fellow Republican Mitt Romney for president, as he did in 2008. The Romney campaign

announced Cochran’s support Wednesday. Cochran is the highestranking Republican on the Senate Appropriations Committee. He was first elected to the Senate in 1978, after having served six years in the U.S. House. Cochran said the U.S. “cannot afford another four years” of President Barack Obama’s policies.”

Candidate cuts check from wrong account SHREVEPORT — A state Senate candidate in northwestern Louisiana said he reached for the wrong checkbook when he made a contribution to a fellow Republican in another legislative race. Troy Terrell, who is challenging incumbent state Sen. Sherri Smith Cheek in this month’s election, made the contribution to State Rep. Alan Seabaugh of Shreveport, who is running for reelection to his House seat. The check was from Harvest Outreach Ministries, a nonprofit group that Terrell heads, which isn’t supposed to make political contributions. Seabaugh and Terrell say the money has been sent back and that Terrell wrote a personal check for $500 to Seabaugh’s campaign.

BP, Transocean, Halliburton cited for safety violations NEW ORLEANS — Federal regulators on Wednesday cited oil company BP PLC and two other companies — Transocean Ltd. and Halliburton — for safety and environmental violations stemming from last year’s rig explosion and massive Gulf oil spill. The companies have 60 days to appeal the citations issued by the Interior Department’s Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement. The bureau said the regulatory violations could result in civil penalties once the appeal period has ended. These initial citations are the product of a federal government probe of the Deepwater Horizon blast, which killed 11 workers and hastened the nation’s worst offshore oil spill. “To ensure the safe and environmentally responsible conduct of offshore operations, companies that violate federal regulations must be held accountable,”

after the spill BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BSEE Director Michael R. Bromwich said in a statement. “The joint investigation clearly revealed the violation of numerous federal regulations designed to protect the integrity of offshore operations.”

Prosecutors: Rig owner is ignoring subpoenas HOUSTON — Federal prosecutors on Wednesday filed a civil complaint against the owner of the rig that exploded last year in the Gulf of Mexico and led to a massive oil spill, accusing the company of refusing to honor subpoenas from a federal board investigating the accident. But the owner of the rig, Transocean Ltd., said the U.S. Chemical Safety Board, which issued the subpoenas, doesn’t have jurisdiction. The complaint, filed by the U.S. attorney’s office on

behalf of the safety board, alleges that Transocean has not fully complied with five subpoenas issued by the board from Nov. 24, 2010, to April 7. “Transocean has provided no response or an insufficient response to a total of thirty-eight specific demands for documents or answers to interrogatories. Some of these demands are more than 10 months old,” according to the complaint, which was filed in federal court in Houston. “Transocean’s ongoing failure to provide information has impeded and delayed the CSB’s investigation.” The board is one of several agencies investigating the April 20, 2010, explosion, which killed 11 workers. It also led to more than 200 million gallons of oil being released from BP’s undersea well, according to government estimates. Transocean contends the board does not have standing to ask for the documents.

Children’s group denied request to join lawsuit JACKSON (AP) — A federal judge has denied an advocacy group’s request to join in a lawsuit that accuses Mississippi of subjecting mentally ill children to needless institutionalization. U.S. District Judge Henry Wingate recently denied New York-based Children’s Rights

Inc.’s efforts to intervene in the lawsuit. The lawsuit claims, among other things, that Mississippi relies too heavily on restrictive institutions. The Mississippi Department of Mental Health has denied allegations made in the lawsuit.

It was filed by Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law in Washington, D.C., and the Mississippi Youth Justice Project, part of the Southern Poverty Law Center. Wingate has not ruled on the state’s motion to dismiss the lawsuit. A hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.

Debate highlights new competition in banking There is good news in the $5 monthly fee Bank of America plans to start charging debit-card users next year: Consumers can decide whether or not to pay it. U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., however, suggests that consumers find another bank. Durbin sponsored the amendment to the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform bill that Bank of America says caused it to seek its new form of revenue. The amendment limited the amount of money big banks could charge retailers for “swipe fees” every time they processed a debit-card transaction. Before Durbin’s amendment took effect on Saturday, big banks were charging about 44 cents per swipe ­— more than 1,000 percent what the Fed has estimated it costs to process such transactions. Now, big banks are limited to making in the range of 400 percent profit per swipe. Pity those poor profiteers who have been stockpiling cash while the nation bleeds jobs.

“Vote with your feet,” Durbin urged Bank of America customers from the floor of the Senate on Monday. “Get the heck out of that bank.” We’ll leave such decisions to the consumers, but we will point out that among the reasons we have supported Durbin’s amendment is that it does, indeed, give consumers a choice. Before the new law went into effect, consumers were forced to pay the ridiculously high swipe fees passed on by retail establishments. The fees hit the poor particularly hard, as they tend to spend more of their cash at convenience stores and Walmarts and retail businesses that have had no choice but to pass on the fee in higher prices. The new law reduces the pricing pressures on those retail businesses, and it has brought a new level of competition to the banking industry by exempting small banks from the new rules. It would be naive to believe that all retail businesses will pass

any savings on to consumers, but in the highly competitive industry where Lowe’s and The Home Depot are competing for the same business, it’s possible that over time, consumers will see savings. More important, the banking industry now will have more competition. While Bank of America plans a new $5 debit-card fee, other big banks such as Wells Fargo and JPMorgan Chase are discussing smaller fees. Citibank hasn’t announced any such fees. Further, some smaller banks and credit unions, which worked against the swipe-fee amendment, now are trumpeting the change in law as a way for them to compete with the big boys. According to the Federal Reserve, there are 14,821 banks not affected at all by the new swipe-fee law. Bank of America’s actions might have put some of those banks in line for some new business. Cha-ching.

MODERATELY CONFUSED by Jeff Stahler

Mississippi’s ‘energy state’ status must include alternative fuels STARKVILLE – Before U.S. Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus arrived here Oct. 6 for the Mississippi State University Biofuels Conference, oil industry critics were already slamming the former Mississippi governor’s message that biofuels and other alternative energies need to be part of the mix for use in the national defense apparatus. In August, President Barack Obama said in a speech in Minnesota that he wanted to see the military weaned off dependence on fossil fuels. “The Department of Defense uses a lot of fuel, so the question is, can we get trucks and jeeps and, in some cases, even fighter jets running on alternative fuels, which is important for our national security but also could provide an incredible boost to communities all across Minnesota, all across the country?” Obama said.

What’s good for the environment may not be good for the economy. What’s good for the economy may not be good for the environment.

The same week, the administration announced that $510 million had been set aside to help businesses to begin producing plant waste-based fuels for the Navy. The Navy secretary set a 2020 goal of half of all Navy fuels coming from plant material. The president’s Minnesota announcement brought a swift criticism from Minnesota U.S. Rep. Collin Peterson, who said the proposals threaten his state’s existing 21 ethanol plants and will require costly further processing.

The pro-industry Oil & Gas Journal pronounced the Navy’s efforts a “boondoggle.” Meanwhile, back in Mississippi, Gov. Haley Barbour said a day before Mabus spoke at MSU that he believes the state is an important source of energy and that he would welcome additional nuclear power plants. That echoed a statement he made in January at the groundbreaking for the Kemper County coal gasification plant when he said: “As long as I’m governor, Mississippi will have an energy

policy, and that policy is more energy.” Lt. Gov. Phil Bryant, the Republican seeking to succeed Barbour as governor, has been a proponent of carbon sequestration, which is the injecting of carbon dioxide as a way to extract oil and gas from once dormant oil fields. If Mississippi is to be the force in energy production and development that Barbour and Bryant have suggested, it will be with a mix of traditional fossil fuels and new alternative energy technologies. MSU’s Energy Institute and other campus researchers are already developing “drop in” biofuels that can be added to gas, diesel and jet fuel, according to Glenn Steele, director of the institute. But as was seen in Minnesota and will be seen in Mississippi, at the intersection of fossil fuels and alternative fuels lies

the political rub. What’s good for the environment may not be good for the economy. What’s good for the economy may not be good for the environment. The federal government will pay for research, but where and by whom? One state wins, another state loses. One economic sector wins, another loses. But the argument made by Mabus is undeniable: “We simply buy too much fossil fuels from actually and potentially volatile places on Earth. We would never allow some of these countries we buy fuel from to build our ships, to build our aircraft, to build our ground vehicles, but we give them a say in whether our ships sail, our aircraft fly or our ground vehicles operate.” • Sid Salter is a syndicated columnist.

8 killed when gunman opens fire in California salon SEAL BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Every hair-dressing station was full at Salon Meritage when a gunman burst through the door and began shooting, sending terrified customers diving for cover in the upscale salon tucked just blocks from the beach in this quaint seaside town. The shooter then stepped outside, shot a man sitting in a truck in the parking lot and sped off. By the time it was all over Wednesday, eight people were dead and another in critical condition in one of the deadliest shooting rampages in Orange County and the most violent crime in memory in Seal Beach, a town so calm the police spokesman couldn’t even recall when the last homicide occurred when asked. “There was like a ‘pop pop’ ... and my receptionist screamed out, ‘He just shot that man’ and we all went into the bathroom and called 911,” said Kimberly Criswell, who owns a salon two doors away and knew many hairstylists at Salon Meritage. “I’m sure I’ve lost some friends today.” Police arrested 42-year-old

Women stand near the Salon Meritage Wednesday in Seal Beach, Calif. Scott Dekraai about a halfmile from the scene but did not release a motive or any other details. In all, one man and five women died at the salon, one man and one woman died after being transported to a nearby hospital, and one woman remained in critical condition. Their names have not been

released. Friends of the salon owner and other employees said Dekraai was the ex-husband of a stylist who worked there. One of the licensed cosmetologists at the salon was listed as Michelle Dekraai. Sgt. Steve Bowles would only say, “There might be something to the motive as to a relationship with

Survey: 80 percent of boys use condoms first time CHICAGO (AP) — A surprising 80 percent of teenage boys say they are using condoms the first time they have sex, a government survey found in a powerful sign that decades of efforts to change young people’s sexual behavior are taking hold. But another promising trend — a drop since the 1980s in the number of teenagers having sex — has leveled off. Boys’ condom use may mean they are taking more responsibility for contraception or they are protecting themselves from sexually transmitted diseases, experts say. Or, as one young man said, girls may be drawing the line. “I’m not sure how much of this is guys thinking they need to use a condom or girls insisting they use a condom,” said 17-year-old Olivier Vanasse of Princeton, N.J. “I’d be hesitant

The survey suggests that condom use continues. Asked if they used a condom the last time they had sex in the previous three months, 75 percent said they did, an increase from 71 percent in 2002. to give guys credit for coming up with this on their own.” The study, released Wednesday, is based on interviews with about 4,700 teenagers, ages 15 to 19, conducted from 2006 through 2010. It shows the percentage of boys who said they used condoms the first time they had sex climbed from 71 percent in 2002 to 80 percent in the new survey. In 1988, 55 percent of boys said they used a condom during their first sexual intercourse.

“It comes as a general surprise to people that teenagers in general and teen boys in particular can behave responsibly when it comes to making decisions about sex,” said Bill Albert, spokesman for the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy. “I think it is surprising.” The survey suggests that condom use continues. Asked if they used a condom the last time they had sex in the previous three months, 75 percent said they did, an increase from 71 percent in 2002. “We don’t think it’s a stupid thing to do anymore,” said Vanasse, a high school senior and staff writer for www. sexetc.org, a project of Rutgers University’s Answer, a national sex education organization.

somebody in the salon, that is our assumption.” He declined to elaborate later. Glenn Zachman, who owns a video news-gathering service, said he arrived at the scene of the arrest shortly after police and saw they had placed plastic bags over the man’s hands to preserve possible gunshot residue. He also saw a bul-

letproof vest on the back of a patrol car but didn’t know if the man, dressed in a buttondown shirt and pants, had been wearing it. The man, in handcuffs, was placed in a patrol car and taken away about 2 1/2 hours after the shooting. A new white pickup that was believed to be his was parked on the modest residential street with its doors open. The man was cooperative when officers, working from a description of the shooter, stopped him near the salon, Bowles said. Shortly after he was arrested, police arrived at a house on Melody Lane in nearby Huntington Beach and escorted two women to a white car and then roped off the house with crime scene tape. The house is registered to Scott Dekraai. Kari Salveson of Los Alamitos, who attended a service for the victims at SeaCoast Grace Church in Seal Beach, said she had known Michelle Dekraai for more than 10 years and was aware that she and her ex-husband were involved in a custody dispute over their son.

Sheriff launches new effort to identify Gacy victims CHICAGO (AP) — More than 30 years after a collection of skeletal remains was found beneath John Wayne Gacy’s house, detectives have secretly exhumed bones of eight young men who were never identified in hopes of answering a final question: Who were they? The Cook County Sheriff’s Department said DNA testing could solve the last mystery associated with one of the nation’s worst serial killers, and authorities Wednesday asked for the public’s help in determining the victims’ names. Investigators are urging relatives of anyone who disappeared between 1970 and Gacy’s 1978 arrest — and who is still unaccounted for — to undergo saliva tests to compare their DNA with that of the skeletal remains. Detectives believe the pas-

sage of time might actually work in their favor. Some families who never reported the victims missing and never John Wayne searched for Gacy them could be willing to do so now, a generation after Gacy’s homosexuality and pattern of preying on vulnerable teens were splashed across newspapers all over the world. Gacy was convicted of murdering 33 young men. He stabbed one and strangled the others between 1972 and 1978. Most were buried in a crawl space under his home. Four others were dumped in a river. He was executed in 1994.

U.S. missiles kill militant ‘coordinator’ in Pakistan PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) — American drone-fired missiles killed a ranking member of the militant Haqqani network today in northwestern Pakistan, striking a group that Washington claims is the No. 1 threat in Afghanistan and is supported by Pakistani security forces, local intelligence officials said. The strike came as U.S. special envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan Marc Grossman arrived in Pakistan to improve ties between Washington and Islamabad that have been severely strained by stepped-up American claims of Pakistan assistance to the Haqqanis. Two other militants were killed in the attack in the Haqqani stronghold of North Waziristan, the group’s main sanctuary along the Afghan border, said the Pakistani officials in the region. They identified the Haqqani member as Jalil and said he was a “coordinator” for the group. The men were walking down a street when the two missiles hit, the officials said. One said Jalil was related to Sirajuddin Haqqani, the leader of the network. The missiles hit close to Dande Darpa Khel village, which is home to a large seminary with links to the Haqqanis. Later today, another pair of drone-fired missiles hit a militant position on hills close to the frontier in South Waziristan, killing six people, intelligence officials said. They said the militants were firing rockets and mortars across the border at an American base in Machadad Kot. U.S. officials do not talk about the CIA-led drone program. The al-Qaida-allied Haqqani network is one of the most organized insurgent factions fighting the U.S. presence in Afghanistan, and it has been blamed for high-profile assaults against Western and Afghan targets in the Afghan capital, Kabul.

WILLIAMS

WASHINGTON (AP) — Warren Buffett is bringing his fight to raise taxes on the super-wealthy to Congress’ deficit-reduction supercommittee. In an exchange of letters between the billionaire investor and a Republican congressman that Buffett sent the committee this week, Buffett is offering to release his federal tax returns — with a condition. “If you could get other ultrarich Americans to publish their returns along with mine, that would be very useful to the tax dialogue and intelligent reform,” Buffett wrote. The letters, obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press, were among several sent in recent days to the special bipartisan panel created this summer to find ways to reduce the mushrooming national debt by at least $1.2 trillion over the coming decade. The same law that produced the supercommittee gave Congress’ regular committees

some very definite disadvantages — to waiting until after being married to do a short sale. The chief disadvantage is that once you are married (even though your finances may be separate), it’s possible that negotiating a short sale can reflect on your credit as well as your fiancee’s. If your credit is already down the drain, I suppose it doesn’t matter much. I would get it done before the nuptials.

30-year fixed mortgage rate jumps to 4.1% WASHINGTON (AP) — The average rate on the 30-year fixed mortgage rose sharply this week after falling below 4 percent for the first time in history. Freddie Mac said today that the rate on the 30-year fixed loan rose to 4.12 percent. That’s up from 3.94 percent last week, the lowest rate ever according to the National Bureau of Economic Research. The average rate on the 15-year fixed mortgage, a popular refinancing option, increased to 3.37 percent from 3.26 percent, also a record. July to September quarter increased 14 percent compared to the second quarter, RealtyTrac said today.

That increase signals banks are moving more aggressively now against borrowers who have fallen behind on their mortgage payments than they have since industrywide foreclosure processing problems emerged last fall. Those problems resulted in a sharp drop in foreclosure activity this year. The surge in default notices means homeowners who haven’t kept up their mortgage payments could now end up on the foreclosure path sooner. Initial default notices are the first step in the process that can eventually lead to a home being taken back by a lender. A pickup in foreclosure activity also means a potentially faster turnaround for the U.S. housing market. Experts say a revival isn’t likely to occur as long as there remains a glut of potential foreclosures hovering over the market. The third-quarter increase in initial defaults was largely a product of a spike in August.

Slump in bank cash brings Dow down NEW YORK (AP) — Banks led the stock market lower today after JPMorgan Chase’s income fell in the third quarter because of weakness in its investment banking division. The Dow fell 100 points, or 0.9 percent, to 11,421 at 9 a.m. JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s income fell 4 percent in the July-September period. Fees from investment banking dropped 31 percent because of severe turbulence in financial markets this summer. The stock fell 4.8 percent, the most of the 30 companies in the Dow. Other banks also fell. Citigroup dropped 5.2 percent, Morgan Stanley 4.9 percent and Bank of America Corp. 4.5 percent. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 12, or 1 percent, to 1,196. Financial stocks fell 3 percent, the most of the 10 company groups that make up the index. The Nasdaq composite fell 9, or 0.4 percent, to 2,596. The number of people seeking unemployment benefits in the U.S. also barely changed last week.

JACKSON (AP) — Just under 600 Mississippi homeowners reached the end of the line during the third quarter, losing their homes to foreclosure. According to Irvine, Calif.based RealtyTrac, which tracks foreclosure actions nationwide, 1,069 properties were targeted for some sort of foreclosure action from July through September. Of those, lending institutions took back 583 and the other 486 received a final notice of sale. Those actions affected one in every 1,199 housing units in the state, ranking Mississippi 44th in the RealtyTrac count. Foreclosure actions in Mississippi rose 27 percent from the second quarter of 2011, but were down 25.4 percent from the third quarter of 2010. More homes across the nation are entering the foreclosure process, but they’re taking ever longer to get sold or repossessed by lenders.

until Friday to submit t h e i r ow n suggestions for erasing red ink. Some of those that have trickled in so far Warren indicate that Buffett rather than offering dramatic new ideas for savings, many lawmakers are championing longtime favorite proposals and urging the panel to avoid cutting certain programs. In his letter to the panel, Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, who heads the Senate Health and

Education Committee, asked the panel to take “bold and immediate action to create jobs” while embracing deficit reduction that would take effect after the unemployment rate drops. The leaders of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, Chairman Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., and Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., combined on a letter asking the supercommittee to “not neglect America’s transportation needs.” In Buffett’s letter sent Tuesday to Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Kan., Buffett did reveal new information about his own earnings last year. He

wrote that his adjusted gross income, which can exclude some income and expenses, was $62,855,038. His taxable income was $39,814,784. In a New York Times opinion piece this summer in which he said tax rates on the wealthiest Americans were too low, Buffett disclosed that he paid $6,938,744 in federal taxes last year, or 17.4 percent of his taxable income. Taxable income is lower than adjusted gross income because it subtracts exemptions and itemized deductions such as charitable contributions and state and local taxes.

Panetta asking Congress to make cuts in military spending WASHINGTON (AP) — Defense Secretary Leon Panetta is urging Congress to work with him on deficitreduction-driven cuts in military spending, a task he says is made more difficult as the armed forces try to rebuild from a decade of war. Rising deficits and deep debt have forced the federal government to slash spending — even at the Pentagon, whose budget nearly doubled to some $700 billion in the 10 years since the Sept. 11 ter-

rorist attacks. “We have a strong military, but one that has been stressed by a decade of fighting, squeezed by rising personnel costs, and is in need of modernization given the focus of the past decade,” Panetta said this morning. It was a reference to the heavy focus on fighting insurgencies and terrorists in Iraq and Afghanistan, rather than on the skills and equipment needed to fight traditional armies, navies

and air forces. Meanwhile, international security issues have grown more complex, Panetta said, noting the United States must be prepared to continue dealing with violent extremism as well as the nuclear ambitions of Iran and North Korea, the prospects of cyber attackers who may target American infrastructure, and other threats. “Our challenge is taking a force that has been involved in a decade of war and ensur-

Bridge

ing that we build the military we need to defend our country for the next decade even at a time of fiscal austerity,” Panetta said in a statement prepared for a House Armed Services Committee hearing. Also testifying before the panel was Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, making his first appearance on Capitol Hill since taking over as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on Oct. 1. The possibility of a residual U.S. force remaining in Iraq

after the end of the year, the drawdown in Afghanistan and the fight against terrorism also were likely topics for Panetta, who was CIA director before taking over the Defense Department. Earlier this week, Panetta said that lawmakers need to collaborate on cuts, warning that some lawmakers’ favored programs could be on the chopping block. “This must be a partnership, Republican and Democrat alike,” Panetta said.

Pierce, who wears a goatee and has a tattoo on the back of his neck, said he completed 30 hours of college and once had construction jobs working with iron and

asphalt. He told the judge he was treated for mental problems as a young teenager, but didn’t elaborate. The judge scheduled a hearing next week on a government motion to waive the federal speedy trial rules. That step would give attorneys more time to prepare because of the complex nature of the case. The Louisiana Department

of Public Safety uses about 160 inmate workers, known as trusties, for various jobs at the State Police compound. Wedgeworth and Pierce had been working as groundskeepers there and were able to get keys to a van and drive off, authorities said. Wedgeworth was serving time for armed robbery, and Pierce for attempted seconddegree murder. Before they

escaped, Wedgeworth was set to be released in 2023 and Pierce in 2024. Authorities said the men were caught after crashing a pickup truck in Memphis.

Saints use all their aerial options By Brett Martel The Associated Press METAIRIE, La. — Saints players know by now that with Drew Brees at quarterback, one doesn’t have to play receiver to rack up a lot of receptions. So far in 2011, Brees has completed more passes to second-year tight end Jimmy Graham (32) and running back Darren Sproles (31) than anyone else. In their victory over Carolina on Sunday, the Saints reminded future opponents that they are just as likely to throw to running backs when they need a key first down or a touchdown. Of Brees’ two touchdown passes in the game, the first went to

fullback Jed Collins and the second went to running back Pierre Thomas, who also happens to rank fifth on the squad in receptions with 14, ahead of Devery Henderson and Marques Colston. “That’s been the nature of our offense ever since we’ve been here,” Brees said. “You see it every game where there are nine or 10 guys catching balls. Rarely do we have a guy who’s up in the 10-plus range. We have a lot of guys who are six, seven, eight catches, very productive. Every guy contributing on third down and the red zone — that’s what we do. It keeps defenses off balance when they try to game plan for us” Of Brees’ 12 scoring passes

this season, only half have gone to receivers. Three have gone to the 6-foot-6, 260pound Graham, and one each has gone to Sproles, Thomas and Collins. Fortunately for the Saints, none of their receivers have the outspoken, “Diva” persona that seems to be common at their position league-wide. “In this offense, if you’re going to be selfish you’re not going to be here anyway,” said Robert Meachem, who has 22 catches to rank third on the team and first among New Orleans receivers. “Being a playmaker, you always want the ball. Don’t get me wrong. But in See Saints, Page B3.

Vicksburg native helping Chad Jones with his miraculous recovery St. Aloysius graduate and strength and flexibility coach Carter Stamm has seen plenty of ACL tears and Achilles tendons injuries at the Final Fitness rehabilitation center he runs in Harahan, La., just outside New Orleans. He’s made a living — after getting a cup of coffee with the New Orleans Saints in 1982 — helping athletes recover their strength and flexibility after possibly career-threatening injuries. Partnering with Southern Orthopedic Specialists, Stamm and speed coach Derrick Joseph have helped plenty of athletes return to the playing field or the court after serious injuries. But nothing could have prepared them for the predicament of former LSU safety Chad Jones. The promising young star, who was a thirdround draft pick of the New York Giants and had shut down the Texas batting order in the 2009 College World Series, was lucky to be alive

after a horrific car crash in New Orleans in 2010. His left leg was shattered and damaged in a way that defies description. Jones was in a hospital bed for a year after enduring 11 surgeries. Just the first surgery alone to merely stabilize the damaged appendenge took seven of the nation’s best surgeons six hours. “If it would’ve been 20 years ago, they would’ve just gone ahead and amputated it,” Stamm said. “It’s that bad. It’s so bad, I can’t even give the injury an accurate description.” Doctors told Jones that

he’d be lucky to walk, much less run again. The NFL? No chance, they said. He didn’t take no for answer. With the help of Stamm and Joseph and physical therapist John Moran, Jones set a goal of returning to the NFL. Last week, Jones proved that his journey back is for real. Jones, on his 23rd birthday and 10 months into his rehab, got on a track at his alma mater, St. Martin (La.) and ran a consistent 4.83-second 40-yard dash. Stamm said Jones has run 10-yard splits at a faster time than he did in the 2010 NFL combine, an amazing achievement. “We like to set short-term goals,” Stamm said. “I told him that he was going run on his 23rd birthday, so he better get to work. I was absolutely ecstatic. I was just hoping that he could run under a 5-second time.” But it hasn’t been an easy road to that shining milestone.

When Jones came to Stamm’s facility, Jones had to learn to walk again without a limp. He had to then learn how to run again with the help of Joseph, a former Tulane track athlete. Every week, Stamm had to figure out a way to put together a workout program that got Jones the results he needed and not cause him excruciating pain. “My wife said it was like putting together a puzzle,” Stamm said. “Dr. Finney said that we were in uncharted territory. He’s got so much scar tissue, a year’s worth, and we don’t know how his nerves and tissues and the screws and hardware in his leg will handle it. It’s going to require a stroke of luck and the help of God.” Stamm put him through a grueling routine of weight training and a flexibility regime that isn’t for the weak of heart. It’d be a chore for the able-bodied, much less someone coming back from

a catastrophic injury like Jones’. Stamm pushed hard with his program, week after week, and Jones kept improving. During an assessment of Jones, Dr. (Tim) Finney, an orthopedic specialist who is one of the New Orleans Saints’ doctors, told Stamm that he was “blown away” by the amazing progress. But the road, while half done, has still more challenges ahead. And Stamm feels Jones is up to the task. “He’s a great kid and I’ve grown quite fond of him. He’s humble, nice, pleasant and an incredibly gifted athlete,” Stamm said. “I don’t care about fame or money or anything like that. Getting him back to the NFL would be a home run for me.” Sounds like a movie just waiting to be made. •

GOLF Hot dog thrower wanted to be ‘epic’ PETALUMA, Calif. — A California man arrested for throwing a hot dog at Tiger Woods during a tournament said he wanted to do something “courageous and epic.” Brandon Kelly of Petaluma told the Santa Rosa Press Democrat on Tuesday that he’s a fan of Woods and got the idea after watching the movie “Drive.” “As soon as the movie ended,” Kelly said, “I thought to myself, ‘I have to do something courageous and epic. I have to throw a hot dog on the green in front of Tiger.”’ Kelly was arrested for disturbing the peace Sunday during the Frys. com Open in San Martin.

ATHLETICS Marathon cheater confesses bus ride LONDON — Rob Sloan boasted he’d completed an “unbelievably tough” marathon near Newcastle after crossing the finish line in third place with a personal-best time.. Sloan dropped out 20 miles into the race, hitched a ride on a spectator shuttle bus and emerged from the woods near the finish line to make the podium. After initially describing as “laughable” claims he cheated in the Kielder Marathon on Sunday, Sloan admitted his transgression following an investigation.

MHSAA Region 4-1A: Hinds AHS at University Christian 7 p.m. Friday Records: Hinds AHS (3-5, 2-4); University Christian (3-3, 3-2) Hinds AHS: The War Dawgs kept their slim playoff hopes alive by beating Salem last week, and now face another must-win game this Friday against University Christian. Hinds and UCS are two of six teams within a game of each other for the fourth and final playoff spot in Region 4-1A, which makes Friday’s matchup crucial for both sides. University Christian: The Flames, in their first season in the MHSAA since moving over from the Mississippi Association of Independent Schools, control their own destiny in their pursuit of a playoff berth. Three of their last four games are against teams in competition for fourth place in the region, and UCS already owns a half-game lead. Coach’s quote: “We knew from here on out every game is a playoff game. If we win out, we’ve got a pretty good chance.” — Hinds AHS coach Michael Fields

MHSAA Region 6-4A: Port Gibson at Magee 7 p.m. Friday Records: Port Gibson (6-2, 2-2): Magee (4-3, 3-0) Port Gibson: The Blue Waves were without seven defensive starters in last week’s 33-26 loss at Florence. The departures were evident in the second half as Florence rallied from a 20-8 deficit. The Blue Waves will get back Mississippi State commit Adarius Barnes along with two of their top defensive linemen, Darius Moore and Isaiah Anderson, following their one-game suspension for an on-field brawl two weeks ago against Raymond. Magee: The Trojans bounced back from a 1-3 start with three straight wins in region play. The biggest was a 43-14 win against Florence. The Trojans held Florence to just 67 yards rushing and picked off Sam Vincent twice. Magee uses a spread the wealth philosophy on offense. They use two quarterbacks, Brian Mills and Marquez McNair. The pair have accounted for 640 yards passing and 613 rushing. Five other running backs have gained over 200 yards this season and all had carries against Florence.

MAIS District 3-A: Tallulah Academy at Wilkinson Christian

7 p.m. Friday Records: Tallulah Academy (0-8, 0-5); Wilkinson Christian (7-1, 4-0) Tallulah Academy: The Trojans, who were shut out by Prentiss Christian last week, have not scored more than 14 points in a game since the season opener. Even so, coach Chris Busby said a strong offensive performance would be key if Tallulah is to upset first-place Wilkinson. Wilkinson Christian: Wilkinson has asserted itself as the team to beat in District 3-A thanks to a punishing defense. It has only given up 57 points all season, with 36 of those coming in a loss to Centreville Academy. The Rams have posted four shutouts, a total that does not include last week’s forfeit victory over Union Christian. Coach’s quote: “We’ve got to keep the ball out of their hands. Try some high-percentage runs, some short throws, just keep their offense off of the field.” — Tallulah Academy coach Chris Busby

MAIS: Central Hinds at Canton Academy 7 p.m. Friday Records: Central Hinds (3-5); Canton Academy (3-5) Central Hinds: After an 0-4 start, Central Hinds has won three of its last four and is on a roll heading into the homestretch. The Cougars can win the District 3-AA championship by winning their last two games against River Oaks and Prairie View, or clinch a playoff berth by winning one of the two. Canton Academy: Canton has followed up two straight wins with back-to-back losses. Its three wins this season have come against teams with a combined record of 2-21, while only one of its five losses has been to a team with a losing record. Coach’s quote: “After we played Simpson, our goal was to win five straight. We’re 2-0 in the second half of the season and getting to 3-0 heading to (River Oaks) would be huge.” — Central Hinds coach Todd Montgomery

Continued from Page B1. type of offense that you have to show discipline on defense. You can’t worry about where the ball is, you have to play your assignment.” Madison Central (5-2, 3-0 Region 2-6A) averages 296.6 yards per game on the ground with its midline option game. Quarterback Drew Rowell is the triggerman. He has rushed for 641 yards and 12 touchdowns this season. His best outing was a 171-yard performance in a 35-26 win over Clinton. He has thrown 355 yards as the Jaguars prefer to run behind a stable of backs. Hugh Warren adds 492 yards while Brandon Moore has 455 and three TDs, but it was Daniel Goodspeed who had the big game last week against Warren Central. Goodspeed rushed for 175 yards as the Jaguars broke open a close game through three quarters to beat the Vikings 42-14. The good news for the Gators (3-4, 1-2) is Madison Central is no longer the dominant defensive power it once was.

St. Al Continued from Page B1. now is to build for next season. The Flashes expect to return 22 of their 26 players. A talented 8th grade class will join the team next week following the conclusion of their season on Monday. “We want to finish the season by getting better,” Smithhart said. “We want our seniors to continue to play hard, but at the same time, we’re building for the future. Our junior high guys have one more game against Madison St. Joe and then we’ll bring them up.” Until then, the Flashes must find a way to slow down the Stringer ground game. Stringer averages 414.6 yards per game on the ground.

“It’s not the same Madison Central of old,” Stevens said. “They lost their defensive coordinator to the new school (Germantown) and some players went with him. I still think they are the class of the conference, but as Murrah showed when they beat Clinton last week, everybody can play this year. It all depends on who gets a hot hand.” Stevens hopes Cooksey remains hot. He threw for a state-best 569 yards vs. Northwest Rankin on 48 completions, a national high. He added 231 yards and three TDs last week against Greenville-Weston. He has thrown for 2,269 yards and 27 touchdowns. Two more TD passes and 271 yards and Cooksey can add the single-season touchdown and yardage marks to his growing list of Warren County records. Last week’s game-winning, 26-yard TD toss to Lamar Anthony, broke the career touchdown pass mark of 50 set by Earnest Moore from 1971-73. Moore played at North Vicksburg and Vicksburg High. One more reception by Stamps will eclipse the single-season record of 53 held currently by Bunkie Perkins, a former VHS star from 1997. Moore is the catalyst with 930 yards and 14 touchdowns. His top game came in a 36-33 loss to Cathedral, when he had 235 yards on 22 carries. “They can really run it and run it well,” Smithhart said. “It’s a combination of having a good line and good backs.” Senior Carlton Campbell had his string of 100-yard games snapped at Resurrection when he finished with 73 yards on 11 carries. Campbell enters the Stringer game with 887 yards, just 113 shy of a 1,000-yard season. Smithhart said the one bright spot from the Resurrection game was the running game. “We are still running the ball pretty decently,” Smithhart said. “I thought Forrest Logue had a pretty good game.”

Rangers take Tigers to the brink By The Associated Press Nelson Cruz made a rocket throw to keep the score tied, then hit a crushing three-run homer in the 11th inning off Jose Valverde that helped send the Texas Rangers over the Detroit Tigers 7-3 Wednesday night for a 3-1 lead in the AL championship series. Cruz, whose grand slam in the 11th inning won Game 2, once again starred for the Rangers in a game delayed at the start for more than two hours by rain. With Detroit runners at the corners in the eighth and the score 3-all, Cruz caught Delmon Young’s fly ball to right field and made a strong peg to catcher Mike Napoli to nail Miguel Cabrera. Napoli blooped a go-ahead single in the 11th and Cruz soon added his second home run of the ALCS. Cruz became the first player in major league history to hit a pair of extrainning homers in the same postseason series. Texas tries for its second

daring the rest of the struggling Detroit lineup to beat them. Victor Martinez, who hurt his ribcage on a home run swing in Game 3, followed with a single to right and Cabrera lumbered around to third. Young, another Tigers starter who has been banged up lately, managed to lift the ball to medium right. Cruz caught it and made a perfect, one-hop throw to the plate that beat Cabrera by several feet.

Cardinals 4, Brewers 3 The associated press

Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera is tagged out by Texas Rangers catcher Mike Napoli at home plate during the eighth inning Wednesday. consecutive AL pennant today, sending C.J. Wilson to the mound to face Detroit ace Justin Verlander. The ALCS has marked quite a turnaround for Cruz. After going just 1 for 15 in the firstround playoff win over Tampa Bay, he’s 5 for 14 with 9 RBIs in only four games against the Tigers — and seven of those

RBIs have come in the 11th inning alone. Brandon Inge hit a solo home run in the Detroit seventh that tied it. The Tigers wasted a terrific chance an inning later following some risky Texas strategy. With one out and nobody on, the Rangers intentionally walked Cabrera, practically

matchups each play. While that has often meant throwing to Colston in past years, the 6-foot-4 receiver has been limited this season by a fractured collar bone that caused him to miss two of New Orleans’ first five games. With only 12 receptions so far, he is bound to become more involved as the season progresses, but the Saints

still won twice without him and are second in the NFL in passing with 336.6 yards per game. Tampa Bay coach Rahim Morris has mixed feelings about what he sees when he breaks down video of the Saints’ offense. As a football fan, he said, “It’s an unbelievable offense to watch.” As the next opponent on the sched-

Albert Pujols hit an RBI double during a four-run first inning and the St. Louis bullpen bailed out Chris Carpenter as the Cardinals beat the Milwaukee Brewers for a 2-1 edge in the NL championship series. In a matchup of aces, neither Carpenter nor 17-game Yovani Gallardo made it past the fifth. The one-run lead Carpenter handed over was just enough, as four relievers combined for four perfect innings.

Saints Continued from Page B1. this offense you know pretty much, ‘Hey, be patient. It’s going to happen.”’ The Saints haven’t relied too heavily on any one player in the passing game since coach Sean Payton began calling the plays and Brees began executing them back in 2006. Generally, Brees simply seeks out the most favorable

ule, it’s a concern. “I can’t say enough about Drew Brees. What Jimmy Graham’s been able to do this year has been unbelievable. He’s physical, fast, and violent. It will open it up for the receivers down the stretch here,” Morris said. “It’s just an explosive offense that gets the ball around to everybody and uses their talents well.”

Police: Woman looks for pot on Craigslist A New Mexico woman faces charges after police say she put an ad on Craigslist looking to buy drugs. Roswell police arrested Anamicka Dave, 29, this week after officers posing as sellers arranged to meet her through text messages. Dave’s ad on Craigslist’s “casual encounters” section said she was new to town and “looking for Mary Jane.” Roswell Police Sgt. Ty Sharpe said the ad was so blatant, he had to make sure it wasn’t posted by another undercover officer. “I was really surprised that someone would actually put on there they were looking for weed — an actually illegal product — to the fact that I called my boss to make sure it wasn’t one of our guys trying to do a reverse sting,” Sharpe told the station. Police met the Albuquerque woman in a parking lot and then arrested her. It was unclear if Dave had an attorney, and a message left at a phone listing for her wasn’t returned Wednesday.

‘operation Hackerazzi’

Florida man charged with hacking into celebrity e-mail accounts LOS ANGELES (AP) — A Florida man was charged with hacking into celebrity e-mail accounts in a computer invasion scheme that led to the posting of private and revealing information, including nude photos of actress Scarlett Johansson, on the Internet, federal authorities said Wednesday. Christopher Chaney, 35, of Jacksonville, was arrested without incident as part of a yearlong investigation of celebrity hacking that authorities dubbed “Operation Hackerazzi.” There were more than 50 victims in the case, including Mila Kunis, Christina Aguilera and actress Renee Olstead, authorities said. Others were named only by initials and investigators wouldn’t disclose if they were famous, but said victims named in the indictment agreed to have their identities made public. “It helps get out the message that cyber-hacking is a real threat,” U.S. Attorney Andre Birotte said of the case, describing those who engage in such activity as “scum.” Chaney made his initial court appearance in a Florida courtroom Wednesday and was released on $10,000 bond. He was charged with 26 counts of identity theft, unau-

In Britain, publisher Rupert Murdoch closed d ow n t h e News of the World this year after Christina contentions Aguilera that the tabloid routinely hacked into people’s phones in the hunt for exclusive stories. Authorities said Chaney was responsible for stealing nude photos taken by Johansson herself and were later posted on the Internet. Representatives for Johansson, Kunis and Aguilera did not respond to calls and e-mails seeking comment.

Experts focus on Murray’s missteps LOS ANGELES (AP) — Experts repeatedly told jurors that Michael Jackson’s doctor acted with “gross negligence” throughout his treatment of the pop superstar, a theme that will likely be repeated as prosecutors near the end of their involuntary manslaughter case against the physician. The conclusion of the pros-

ecution’s case, which might comet o d ay b u t more likely will extend into next week, brings defense Dr. Conrad attorneys a Murray step closer to revealing how they will coun-

Rachael Ray food mag being sold NEW YORK (AP) — Rachael Ray’s magazine Every Day with Rachael Ray is being sold by the parent company of Reader’s Digest to Meredith Corp., publisher of Better Homes and Gardens, Family Circle, Parents and Fitness. The January issue will be the magazine’s first under Meredith. Readers will not see an interruption in their subscriptions. Ray, in an e-mail, called the change “a very happy transition.” “We couldn’t be more excited to be partnering with Meredith,” she said. “We are confident, with their focus on growth, Every Day with Rachael Ray will continue to evolve, expand and provide its loyal readers and subscribers with the award-winning content they love in print, digital, and lots of future opportunities.” The magazine is being sold by Reader’s Digest Association as part of a larger realignment by that company.

Reader’s Digest magazine, a fixture in many American h o m e s fo r decades, has struggled to reinvent itself Rachael in the digital Ray age. It hasn’t seen the same precipitous declines in advertising that other magazines and newspapers have suffered, but its circulation has fallen. Still, it remains one of the world’s most-read magazines, with an average circulation of 5.7 million in the first six months of this year, though that’s a decline of 8 percent from a year earlier. Reader’s Digest Association sought bankruptcy protection in 2009 and emerged early last year after shedding some debt. Every Day with Rachael Ray had a circulation of 1.7 million in the first half of 2011, an increase of 2 percent from the

same period the year before. Meredith National Media Group president Tom Harty said the acquisition of Every Day with Rachael Ray would extend the company’s reach “in providing women with best-in-class food content.”

Liz Claiborne to sell several of its brands, change name NEW YORK (AP) — Talk about a fashion makeover. Financially struggling Liz Claiborne Inc. said Wednesday that it is selling its namesake brand and several others to concentrate on its Juicy Couture, Lucky Brand and kate spade fashion plates, which appeal to well-heeled shoppers. The company, which hasn’t had an annual profit since 2006, said it will change its name to reflect that emphasis. Liz Claiborne is the latest company to adjust its business as the U.S. consumer market bifurcates into the high and low ends, essentially squeezing out the middle. Companies ranging from Procter & Gamble to Wendy’s are doing everything from tweaking their product mix to changing the way they advertise and display their goods in order to appeal to American consumers on opposite ends of the spectrum. Liz Claiborne hopes that a more high-end focus will help it turn around its business, where annual revenue has been cut in half from 2006 through last year. Lucky Brand jeans mostly sell for $99 or more, for instance, and kate spade handbags typically start at over than $100. The move follows several attempts by the company to revive its Liz Claiborne brand, which had its heyday in the 1970s and 1980s when Liz Claiborne herself gave working women a stylish-yet-functional wardrobe for the office that focused on full ensembles of tops, trousers, dresses and handbags. To add cache and excitement to the label, the company hired Tim Gunn as chief creative officer in 2007, the year that Claiborne died. And then Isaac Mizrahi was hired in 2008 as creative director. Both hires created buzz, but that didn’t translate into sales. “Over the past few years, we have worked diligently to turn this into a more efficient, dynamic, brand-centric, retail-based company,” CEO William McComb said. “Today marks the culmination of these efforts.”

Youngster’s kidney disease should be open for discussion Dear Abby: I have two sons, 19 and 12. My younger boy has a rare form of kidney disease. His kidney function is currently normal, but his doctor says that in the future he may need a new kidney. At that point, his brother would be high on the list for compatibility and availability. I, sadly, would not. How does one mention the possibility of being a donor to his older brother? Is it even fair to ask? If he doesn’t offer, would I always resent it? Should we wait until there is a real need before asking? — Planning Ahead in California Dear Planning Ahead: All families are different, and it’s a credit to yours that you’re thinking ahead regarding some of the difficult aspects related to donation.

TOMORROW’S HOROSCOPE

BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Don’t waste your time dealing with a subordinate instead of the head honcho, because you must know you’re not going to get anywhere. Go directly to the head of the class. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Once you have thought an important decision through, act in accordance with the way you have reasoned things out. Don’t yield to an impulsive reaction. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — An imaginative product of your ingenuity may actually have profitable possibilities. If you follow your plans, you have a chance for good results. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Two separate situations in which you’re involved might have a chance of fusing together very nicely. It’ll be to your advantage to tie them together to see what you can do. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Both your instincts and logic will be operating at full force, so see if you can link them together in order to more greatly enhance your possibilities for success. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — There is a strong possibility that a chance remark made by someone who works in a place where big things are happening will put you onto something substantial. Keep your ears open. Aries (March 21-April 19) — If you’re doing reasonably well with your work and seem to be on a roll, don’t be too eager to call it a day. Get things done while everything is going your way. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Don’t count your social involvements as wasted hours. You need some interaction with fun people as a break from the harshness of the working world. Make time for them, because they’ll lift your spirits. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Play it cool for best results. Don’t disclose the hand you’re holding until your counterpart reveals his or hers. Chances are you’ll be the one who is holding a trump. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — It might fall to you to mediate a sticky situation between two close friends. Don’t back off from this unwanted responsibility if you know you can resolve things. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Don’t delay going after an important objective if you believe the favorable conditions you’re now experiencing may only be temporary. Strike while the iron is smoking. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — If you think you have a solution that would resolve a misunderstanding between two close friends, speak up. It’s important you do so while both parties are in a forgiving mood.

TWEEN 12 & 20

BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: I’m a 16-year-old girl who gets A’s and B’s, and I am involved in lots of school activities including volleyball, basketball and student government. I have many friends who are over 18. When my parents found out about my older friends, they became very upset and got involved in my social life. Now my parents refuse to allow me to see my older friends. This has caused me to become very depressed. I now cry a lot, and I have even thought of committing suicide, but I don’t want to hurt my friends who would feel that they were the ones to blame. My suicide would also hurt my parents, and even though they are causing me so much emotional pain, I love them very much. Help! Please take my letter seriously. — Nameless, Ontario, Calif. Nameless: Any time a teen has a notion that suicide is the solution to a problem, it’s a very serious matter. It’s important that your parents and you discuss the situation with a professional counselor. If things cannot be worked out at the conference, ask the counselor to recommend a professional family therapist who can work to bring back family harmony. Dr. Wallace: I’m 17 and lately have been having a lot of nightmares. This really bothers me because I’ve been told that dreams can predict the future. If that’s true, then I’ve got a very bleak future. Is there anything I can do to end these nightmares? — Nameless, Moncton, New Brunswick. Nameless: Dreams don’t predict the future, in the sense of conveying literal images of coming events, so don’t worry that you have a bleak future! Everyone has nightmares from time to time, according to Dr. Anthony Kales, director of the Sleep Research and Treatment Center at Pennsylvania State University. However, our dreams — including scary ones — do help keep us in psychological balance. Nightmares are simply the normal dreaming process intensified, as we work out unresolved stresses, conflicts and fears. In the case of teens, these might be the result of moving to a new neighborhood, facing the tensions of exam time or simply negotiating the uncharted waters of puberty. You may be able to reduce the occurrence of nightmares by relaxing before bedtime by listening to music, taking a warm bath, etc. Using drugs or alcohol can also induce nightmares, so be sure to avoid such substances. And needless to say, lay off the midnight snacks and those spooky late movies on television. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service. E-mail him at rwallace@Copley News Service.

This provides a chance for better education about the condition as well as the process, and reduces fear. The decision to be a living donor is a voluntary one and should be entered into free of pressure. Some people may not want to take the risk — and their rights should be respected. The evaluation process is very thorough. It’s designed to minimize risk and also can uncover unexpected conditions in the potential donor that are important.

Tremors aren’t always sign of Parkinson’s Dear Doctor K: My mother’s hands are shaking more than usual lately. She has made an appointment with her doctor, but in the meantime, can you tell me if shaking is always a sign of something serious like Parkinson’s disease? Dear Reader: The shaking in your mother’s hands is called a tremor. Tremors can affect the hands, limbs, head or voice. The actress Katherine Hepburn developed tremors of her head and voice in her later years. A person can’t control a tremor. Most of us can get temporary tremors as a normal reaction to fear, anger, or when we are simply too tired or worn out. Too much caffeine or nicotine (in heavy smokers) can cause a tremor. So can withdrawal from an addictive substance (powerful painkillers or alcohol). Many commonly prescribed drugs also can cause a tremor. Examples include drugs used to treat depression such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), tricyclics and lithium; the asthma drugs terbutaline and theophylline; and potent anti-inflammatory drugs such as prednisone. Lowering the dose of these medicines might reduce the tremor. One fairly common disease, hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) can cause tremor. A patient of mine who came for an annual checkup said her hands had started shaking. She also had a rapid heart rate, even at rest. I ordered blood tests that confirmed she had hyperthyroidism. Treatment fixed her thyroid, and her tremor. Two other common kinds of tremor are essential tremor and Parkinsonism. Like you, many of my patients with a tremor worry that they have Parkinson’s disease, but essential tremor is much more common. It is usually easy to tell the difference. Essential tremor is most noticeable when a person is in action. It can come on when someone is doing everyday things like writing a note or pouring a glass of iced tea. It’s the opposite with the tremors of Parkinson’s disease. The tremors occur at rest, as when a person is sitting still with her hands in her lap. But when she reaches out to grab or hold something, the shaking stops. There are other symptoms that help to tell the difference. With Parkinson’s, it is more common for the tremors to start on one side of the body. Also, it is more common for tremors to involve the legs and to make walking difficult. Finally, people with Parkinson’s lose facial expression: They don’t smile much, or show much emotion in the face. One thing that has helped me diagnose essential tremor in the past might sound a bit odd. The fact is that an alcoholic drink can stop the tremor for an hour or so. So if this works, it might be essential tremor. No, I am not recommending a drink per

hour as treatment of essential tremor! Instead, there are two medications that can help control essential tremor: propranolol and primidone, which produce chemical reactions similar to those caused by alcohol. Only your mother’s doctor can correctly diagnose the cause of her tremors. Fortunately, most tremors are not caused by Parkinson’s disease and can be successfully treated.

Minneapolis Dear Well-Intentioned: Summon up the courage to tell Tammy that although you care about her, you can no longer listen to her problems because it’s distracting you from your responsibilities at work. Explain again that these are issues she should be sharing with a trained profes-

sional. If she persists in bringing her personal problems to you, THEN ask your manager to put a stop to it.
