Ohio firm courting 3 states for Northrop Grumman By The Associated Press NEW ORLEANS — An Ohio company has written governors in three Southern states in a push to purchase the military shipbuilding division of Northrop Grumman Corp., pledging to keep a major Louisiana shipyard open. Cleveland Ship LLC sent letters this week through its Cleveland Shipbuilding Division to Govs. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, Haley Barbour of Mississippi and Bob McDonnell of Virginia. Northrop Grumman Corp. announced plans on July 13 to shutter the Avondale shipyard near New Orleans in early 2013 and consoli-

About 4,600 people now work at Avondale. Northrop also operates a shipbuilding facility at Tallulah, about 20 miles west of

They include Joseph Matthew Baggett, Bobby Elijah 18, 65 BagBunton gett Road, who was indicted on seven counts of vehicular burglary in Warren County; and Bobby Elijah Bunton, 18, Malcolm Ray 209 Demby Robinson Drive and Malcolm Ray Robinson, 19, 404 Zollinger Hill, who were indicted for burglaries and possession of burglar’s tools.

The company said it “continues to explore various alternatives for the potential separation of its shipbuilding business, including a spinoff or sale of the unit.” Cleveland Ship hasn’t said what it would be willing to pay for the military shipbuilding division, and Northrop Grumman has declined comment on the company’s interest.

New jail remains jurors’ priority By Pamela Hitchins One day after a Warren County supervisor renewed his call for a county jail to be built on industrial land in the eastern part of the county, the grand jury convening this week reminded authorities of the need for a new correctional facility. As other grand jurors have for more than four years, the group that met Monday through Thursday placed a new jail at the top of its list of recommendations, expressing concern with how long it is taking supervisors to correct conditions at the aging facility. Jurors tour the jail as See Jail, Page A7.

Vicksburg attorney wraps up tax evasion sentence By Danny Barrett Jr. Friday marked on paper the end of Vicksburg attorney Marshall Sanders’ federal prison sentence for not paying federal income taxes for four years. Sanders, 59, was physically released from a low-security federal prison in Yazoo City in August and “has been home a while now and

it has ended for him,” his wife, Deborah Sanders, said in an e-mail. Sanders was sentenced to 18 Marshall months on Sanders two misdemeanor counts following a March 2009 plea agreement that allowed him to avoid a

possible 15-year sentence on three felony counts for not paying taxes from 2000 to 2003. Also, he was ordered to pay $1,025,453 in restitution to the Internal Revenue Service. Since August, Sanders has been listed by the federal Bureau of Prisons in a prerelease, community corrections program run by the bureau’s regional office in Montgomery, Ala. Staff

assists those nearing the end of their sentence with various services such as employment, housing and mental health treatment. Sanders’ wife didn’t specify whether Sanders, still listed as an active attorney by the Mississippi Bar, had been placed in any employment as a result of the program. “The goal is to have them become a productive member of society,” said

Alvin Speights, community corrections manager at the bureau’s Residential Reentry Center in Montgomery. The state bar association has recommended Sanders’ law license be suspended for three years, based on rules of professional conduct it says Sanders violated. A threeperson panel appointed by the state Supreme Court has considered a case since August 2009.

thanks & appreciation The Vicksburg Post welcomes timely letters of thanks or salute that relate to a specific event or incident where the community was involved or invited. Letters must be original and signed with the author’s name. Letters may thank donors generally, but not include lists. Letters of more than 200 words will not be printed. The Vicksburg Post reserves the right to edit all letters. Submitted items, including letters published in this column, do not represent the views of the newspaper.

Time appreciated The Attic Gallery wants to thank all participants who gave time, effort and creativity to this past Sunday’s art car project that’s evolving into a community effort of folk art and, ultimately, recycling. The project is transforming gallery owner Lesley Silver’s formerly sedate 18-year-old station wagon into a rolling art exhibit. Attached to the car are Altoid tins turned into mini time capsules, social commentaries, tourist lures — call them what you will. Each tin holds homegrown inspirations of artists of varying ages and perspectives. Lesley and the gallery are

grateful to the Print Shop and The Home Depot for their support and for the time, effort and creative energy given by the artists. Lucile Hume Vicksburg

Response calming I want to say thank you to the first responders, especially bridge superintendent Herman Smith and paramedics Brian Charczenko and Demitreus Claiborne, who quickly and professionally came to my aide during the Oct. 9 Over the River Run. I have multiple sclerosis, and for the most part, my disease remains silent. But sometimes it rears its ugly head, and that day it did. Without the quick assistance of my nephew, Thomas McBride, and these wonderful first responders, my loss of control could have easily spread beyond my legs. However, their calming presence and immediate attention allowed me to relax. I would also like to thank the thousands and thousands of riders in our state and elsewhere who ride on behalf of MS. I have friends who

ride in my name each year, and I it warms my heart. Each of you are making a tremendous difference. Thank you for using the strength of your legs and arms, but mostly for using the passion of your heart. Whitney Doiron Vicksburg

OTR Run a success The Southern Cultural Heritage Foundation would like to thank the many organizations and individuals that encouraged, sponsored, volunteered, supported and participated in the 22nd Annual Over the River Run. This event was a huge success. We are so grateful for the financial sponsorships and in-kind contributions. Also, much cooperation was given by local officials and law enforcement. The volunteers consisted of representatives from across the community who worked the day of the event and many nights before bringing everything together. A big thanks to Richard McComas for the pre-event music and Slaphappy for making the after-party a rocking good

time for all. The event was absolutely wonderful, and we look forward to hosting the 23rd Over the River Run on Oct. 8, 2011. Annette Kirklin Executive Director

Support appreciated The grand opening of the Cricket Box was an amazing success. A special thank you goes to all our friends who brought and served refreshments, to the Chamber of Commerce for organizing the event and their ambassadors for supporting our new business. We thank Richard George, president of the county board of supervisors, for his encouraging words. We also thank the police officers who directed traffic and Richard McComas and Glenda Arrendondo for the wonderful entertainment. And of course a big thank you goes to our patrons, vendors and family members who have supported us from the beginning of this new adventure. Debbie Tate and Judy Wooley Owners

Warren County deputies are seeking a convicted sex offender whose last address was in Vicksburg. During a routine check of 520 Berryman Road, Lot 25, deputies didn’t find Johnathan Ezernack, 30, said Warren Johnathan Ezernack County Sheriff’s Department Investigator Stacy Rollison. But family members told deputies they hadn’t seen him in about three weeks and believe he is on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Ezernack was convicted of indecent behavior with juveniles in Natchitoches, La., in 2002. Over the summer, he was convicted in a Jan. 15 offense for failing to notify officials of an address change, a requirement for registered sex offenders. Ezernack served five months in jail, and is serving a three-year probation term on the failure-to-notify charge Anyone with information on Ezernack is asked to call the Warren County Sheriff’s Office at 601-636-1761 or Crime Stoppers at 888-8274637.

Judge OKs money for McNairs NASHVILLE (AP) — The widow of Steve McNair has won her request to get $2.5 million from the late NFL quarterback’s estate. Mechelle McNair, formerly of Vickburg, had asked a Nashville judge to free a portion of the estate so that she and Steve McNair’s four sons could each have $500,000 until the probate case is sorted out. She and McNair, a Mount Olive native, had two sons together, and two are from previous relationships. The estate of the former pro football player, who played with the Tennessee Titans and Baltimore Ravens, was valued at $19.6 million. The bulk of it has been frozen. McNair, 36, and his mistress were found shot to death in July 2009 in an apparent murder-suicide. The woman is believed to have shot him before killing herself.

Civil rights era rapes are forgotten part of history ATLANTA (AP) — Years before Rosa Parks fought for justice from her seat on a Montgomery bus, she fought for Recy Taylor. Parks was an NAACP activist crisscrossing Alabama in 1944 when she came across the case of Taylor, a 24-yearold wife and mother who was brutally gang raped and dumped on the side of a rural road. Taylor survived only to Rosa watch two allParks white, all-male grand juries decline to indict the six white men who admitted to authorities that they assaulted her. Taylor was one of many black women attacked by white men during an era in which sexual assault was used to informally enforce Jim Crow segregation. Their pain galvanized an antirape crusade that ultimately took a back seat to the push to dismantle officially sanctioned separation of the races, and slowly faded from the

The associated press

Recy Taylor, 90, a civil rights era rape victim, sits in her Winter Haven, Fla., home. headlines. Many of these rape victims never got justice and the desire for closure is still there, more than 60 years later — leaving some to wonder what, if anything, can be done. “I didn’t get nothing, ain’t nothing been done about it,� Taylor, now 90, said in a

phone interview from her central Florida home. The AP is revealing Taylor’s identity because she has publicly identified herself as a victim of sexual assault. “I was an honest person and living right,� Taylor said. “They shouldn’t have did that. I never give them no reason

to do it.� For 20 years after she was raped, Taylor and her family lived in the same Abbeville, Ala., community as the families of her attackers. She spent years living in fear, and says local whites continued to treat her badly, even after her assailants left town.

Evelyn Lowery, an activist whose husband, the Rev. Joseph Lowery, worked with Martin Luther King Jr., suggested that an apology from the government could be a start. “I certainly think it would be in order,� Lowery said. “For many years, they tried to say that women were the cause of this, that (black) women wanted sexual activity. ... It hasn’t been true, but the courts used that to justify not taking action on behalf of the women. It was very demoralizing to all of us.� Taylor is not inclined to pursue a civil case. She believes most, if not all, of her attackers are dead. But she does find the idea of an official apology appealing. “It would mean a whole lot to me,� Taylor said. “The people who done this to me ... they can’t do no apologizing. Most of them is gone.� Danielle McGuire, a history professor at Wayne State University who has documented the women’s advocacy and Taylor’s story in a new book, cites numerous instances

of black women enduring unwanted sexual encounters from white men in cities in Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Florida and Arkansas. Adding to the indignity, McGuire said, was the knowledge that black men — many of them innocent — were accused of and severely punished for the same or lesser crimes against white women. In some cases, they paid with their lives. “It tells us that there’s more to the movement than we think we know,� McGuire said. “When we listen to the voices of these women, we get a whole new perspective.� It’s unclear what closure may be available today for black women who were raped in the segregated South. In some states, like Alabama, there is no statute of limitations on rape. McGuire figures “you could make a case for reopening something� if there are living assailants and evidence that can be gathered. “An enterprising attorney could find a way to use that at least in a civil case,� McGuire said.

Federal judge eyes summer 2011 WHEELESS, SHAPPLEY, BAILESS & RECTOR, LLP Attorneys at Law for first Gulf Coast oil spill trial NEW ORLEANS — The first federal trial for damage claims by businesses and individuals complaining of financial losses from the Gulf Coast oil spill could be held in 2011, a judge said Friday. U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier, who presides over a batch of more than 300 consolidated lawsuits against energy giant BP PLC, said the first “test trial� for claims filed under the 1990 Oil Pollution Act could be held as early as June 2011. A BP lawyer objected to scheduling a trial that soon. But Barbier said that if he were to adopt the company’s proposed timetable, the first trial wouldn’t take place until 2013 or 2014. “That’s not feasible to me,� he said at a hearing Friday. Claims filed under the Oil Pollution Act include those filed by hotels and other tourism-driven businesses that say they lost revenue in the spill’s aftermath. The lawsuits arose after the April 20 explosion and sinking of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig, a disaster that killed 11 workers and triggered the spill of more than 200 million of gallons of crude oil before it was capped.

More Florida waters reopen to fishermen NEW ORLEANS — Com-

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says that’s about 29 percent of the area closed until Friday’s announcement, and about 8 percent of all closings from the 200-million-gallon oil spill. Scientists say the last sheen was July 13, and fish test clean of oil and safe to eat.

J&J ordered to pay Louisiana $258M OPELOUSAS, La. — A St. Landry Parish jury says health products maker Johnson & Johnson owes the state nearly $258 million for misleading Louisiana doctors about the possible side effects of one of its anti-psychotic medications. A company spokesman said it would appeal Thursday’s verdict in Opelousas. Attorney General Buddy Caldwell’s office had argued the New Brunswick, N.J.based company, through its subsidiary Janssen Pharmaceutica Inc., had violated a state law against misrepresentation and fraud. Caldwell’s office said John-

son & Johnson and Janssen sent letters to more than 7,500 doctors and made more than 27,000 phone calls that improperly claimed its schizophrenia drug Risperdal was safer than other competing medications and minimized Risperdal’s link to diabetes. Michael Heinley, a spokesman for Johnson & Johnson’s Ortho-McNeil Janssen Pharmaceuticals division, said the company will appeal.

Louisiana logs 29 in West Nile cases BATON ROUGE — Louisiana’s Department of Health and Hospitals says two more West Nile virus cases in the Baton Rouge area bring the year’s total to 29. It says an East Baton Rouge Parish resident has a dangerous illness threatening the brain or nervous system, and a West Baton Rouge Parish resident has one of flu-like West Nile fever. East Baton Rouge has 13 cases this year, including eight dangerous “neuorinvasive� infections and one of fever. The West Baton Rouge Parish diagnosis is that parish’s first. Fifteen of this year’s cases are neuroinvasive. Such cases accounted for 11 of 23 diagnoses last year, and 19 of 58 in 2008.

JACK VIX SAYS: Big TV football day ahead.


Comprehensive sex education It should be mandatory From other Mississippi newspapers: The Commercial Dispatch, Columbus: Mississippi leads the nation in teenage pregnancy. Our Legislature is also a leader — in keeping comprehensive sex education out of public schools. There seems to be a connection here. According to the nonprofit Kids Count Data Book, Mississippi had nearly 10,000 pregnancies among girls ages 15-19 in 2008, the last year records are available. Of course, it seems to be ever more common for girls under 15 to become pregnant — ask any middle school teacher. Even more teens contracted a sexually transmitted diseases. Yet, remarkably, the only sex edu-

cation in Mississippi schools is a unit in health class, either nonexistent or optional until ninth grade. And the focus is on abstinence, not prevention or — dare we say it — contraception. Frankly, many of the teens most at risk for pregnancy and disease are already having sex by ninth grade. A few have children. Educators we’ve spoken with in casual conversation say middle school isn’t early enough to begin educating children about what causes babies. Knowledge is power. Children are having children, in some cases, before they know what causes them. Legislation that would bolster sex education in Mississippi schools routinely dies in the Legislature each year. Some argue that sex education shouldn’t be taught in schools at all —

that this education belongs in the home. In principle that may be a good idea; in practice it’s simply not happening. Some argue that we should only teach abstinence. Let’s be realistic. The sad truth is that children are having sex at an age before they fully understand the consequences. We have a duty to protect them, in this case, through education. We need comprehensive sex education in Mississippi. It should be mandatory, and it needs to start in at least the seventh grade. This is an ethical problem, a health problem and an economic problem. Obviously, it’s a problem that’s not going to solve itself. It’s only going to get worse, until our legislators empower our educators to help reverse this debilitating trend.

Combatting illegal immigration The Clarion-Ledger, Jackson: Lt. Gov. Phil Bryant and state lawmakers expended no small amount of energy patting themselves on the back in 2008 after Mississippi adopted the Bryant-backed “E-Verify” law as a means of combatting illegal immigration. Bryant said in 2008 that such a law was appropriate: “You’ve got someone who has just crossed the border illegally, falsifying (identification). You’re committing an overt act ... using false identification to get a job.” The Legislature passed the Mississippi Employment Protection Act, also referred to as the E-Verify law, in 2008. It has taken effect in phases. Companies with more than 30 work-

ers have had to use the Internet-based E-Verify system since July 1 to check the legal status of potential employees. Those with fewer than 30 workers have another year to comply. A person who violates the law faces felony charges punishable by one to five years in prison, a fine ranging from $1,000 to $10,000, or both. Businesses that knowingly hire an illegal immigrant may lose their licenses for a year and/or lose eligibility to win public, government contracts for three years. The law was only on the books two months when a massive federal immigration enforcement raid on Howard Industries in Laurel on Aug. 25, 2008, resulted in nearly 600 suspected illegal immigrants being detained when fed-

eral agents blocked exits to the sprawling plant, which manufactures electrical transformers. And truck-wide holes in the E-Verify system remain today. ... If Bryant and lawmakers who are talking a good game on getting tough on illegal immigration are serious, then they must begin with putting some teeth in state laws that provide swift and harsh punishment for Mississippi businesses that hire illegal immigrants. To date, lobbyists have made sure that hasn’t happened. But before Mississippi attempts to pass an immigration law to address the supply side of illegal immigration, it must also adopt laws to address the demand for illegal immigrant labor among Mississippi businesses.

Just what the taxpayers need Enterprise-Journal, McComb: We read that Carroll County supervisors, up in North Mississippi, are considering hiring a former lawmaker to, among other duties, lobby the Legislature to increase what counties get for housing state inmates and to mandate the state put more of them in regional jails. That’s just what the taxpayers need: using their money to pay a lobbyist to

run up the taxpayers’ tab by locking up more offenders. Even if this is narrowly good for Carroll County, which has some empty cells in its regional jail, it’s generally bad as public policy for Mississippi. Tight finances have forced the state to try to rein in its corrections budget by reducing the number of nonviolent offenders behind bars. Not only are alternatives like house arrest less expensive, but they have a greater

chance of rehabilitating the offender. Mississippi erred by building or authorizing so many new prison and jail cells during the past couple of decades. That created a motivation to warehouse people, manifested in an incarceration rate that’s the second highest in the nation. Hiring a lobbyist to encourage more of the same is a waste of money all around.

We have known loss, which doesn’t make us losers, exactly.

Let the music play NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The country stars you thought were dead are still living, and the ones you thought were still living are dead. That’s true for at least some of the familiar names on the wall at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, a place I’ve always intended to visit but am only now getting around to. I walk through and marvel at the lives and music represented by plaques and guitars and sparkling Nudies suits and pointy-toed boots and other glamorous memorabilia. I resist the urge to genuflect at the likenesses of Johnny Cash and Hank Williams and Ernest Tubb and Loretta. Lovely tributes abound. But, I am sad to report, something’s amiss in this badly needed country music archives and beautiful fortress of memories. There’s not enough music. Every now and again along the museum tour you can duck into a kiosk and hear a classic record, and RHETA gRIMSLEY there is amazing footage of classic performances. But there’s no place to sit and drink and think about it all, and some other tourist is forever walking in front of you or poking his head into the music booth and interrupting your revelry. There’s a museum for everything in the world by now, including Pez candy dispensers, barbed wire and bad art. But I’m not so sure real country music can be as easily catalogued and showcased as, say, dinosaurs or Tupperware. It’s a challenge. Country music to ring true requires a Naugahyde-covered booth in the corner of a poorly lit roadhouse, air that smells of unfiltered Camels and last night’s beer, a barmaid whose heart is broken and mind is elsewhere, a jukebox holding up a cowboy who is half lit, a truck driver hoping to get lucky with the aforementioned barmaid -- an entire cast of characters sharing a camaraderie born of booze, hard luck and desperation. None of the above is the stuff of museums. I don’t know how to fix what’s wrong here, and sound presumptuous even complaining. If you could bottle heartbreak and mist it through a sprinkler system, you might get closer to the truth. If you could dim the lights and strew peanut shells and cigarette butts on the floor and get some tired old fool to tell you his life’s story, then you’d have a start. But you cannot. Since that’s impossible, I’d suggest pumping up the volume on the classic songs and letting them play in an endless soundtrack that permeates the building and gives all of us pilgrims the fix we need. Most of us who love true country music aren’t here so much because of facts and statistics or even to see Hank’s Pulitzer and Sara Carter’s autoharp. We’re here because of a feeling. We’re here because we’ve known a loss, had a tear in our beer, wanted something badly we weren’t ever going to get. We have known loss, which doesn’t make us losers, exactly. It makes us fans of this brand of country music, the true kind that doesn’t play on the radio anymore. So turn it on and up here, where our heroes rest in peace and our pulses quicken to be in such proximity to greatness.

Q: I am a teacher, and our school is trying to covert courses to online instruction. What do you think of replacDR. GEORGE R. ing teachers with computers? — Freaked Geek A: More schools are changing to the business model. For years, people came to stores and bought merchandise. Then the Internet came along, and suddenly you could buy anything without ever leaving your home. The same is happening with restaurants and many grocery stores, too. As in business, demand drives changes in schools. Online instruction has become especially important to the adult student who does not have time to drive to sit in a class. Of course, there’s noth-

ing like a masterful teacher, and many students I know take both online and traditional courses. Some teachers even prefer online instruction as it saves them time. I would not fret. Though the roles of teachers might change, schools cannot exist without them. There will be many jobs for the best teachers in a rapidly changing school environment. When I used to work at Hinds, we once had requests for a class starting at 4 a.m. for people to attend after their last work shift. We offered it. Now that was innovation — over 40 years ago. Embrace change without fear. •

Dow falls, but Google earnings boost Nasdaq NEW YORK (AP) — Google’s upbeat earnings report sent technology stocks higher Friday, while the rest of the stock market lagged on concerns about banks’ foreclosure problems. The tech-focused Nasdaq composite index rose more than 1 percent with a boost from Google Inc.’s 11 percent gain. While all three major market indexes rose for the week, the Nasdaq’s 2.7 percent jump more than doubled the performance of other measures. Stocks across the board initially rose after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke reiterated that the central bank is ready to do more to stimulate the economy. Bernanke’s comments were the latest confirmation the central bank is about to step up its purchase of Treasury bonds to spark growth. But that burst of optimism

U.S. deficit at near-record $1.3T WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration said Friday the federal deficit hit a near-record $1.3 trillion for the just-completed budget year. That means the government had to borrow 37 cents out of every dollar it spent as tax revenues continued to lag while spending on food stamps and unemployment benefits went up as joblessness neared doubledigit levels in a struggling economy. While expected, the eye-

popping deficit numbers provide Republican critics of President Barack Obama’s fiscal stewardship with fresh ammunition less than three weeks ahead of the midterm congressional elections. The deficit was $122 billion less than last year, a modest improvement. Voter anger over deficits and spending are a problem for Democrats this election year. Republicans are slamming Democrats for votes on Obama’s $814 billion economic stimulus last year.

couldn’t fully overcome worries about how banks like Bank of America Corp. and JPMorgan Chase & Co. handled the foreclosure process on mortgages. Both banks, along with General Electric Co., were the primary culprits

in sending the Dow Jones industrial average down more than 30 points. “The market is not going to continue to rally if financials accelerate to the downside,” said Maier Tarlow, a managing director at Raven Securi-

ties. “It’s a major roadblock.” A small drop in the University of Michigan/Reuters consumer sentiment survey countered reports of growth in retail sales and manufacturing activity in New York. Economists polled by Thomson Reuters expected the preliminary reading on October consumer sentiment to rise slightly. Retail sales climbed in September by more than economists had forecast. Manufacturing activity in New York surged in October and pointed to continued expansion. The Dow fell 31.79, or 0.3 percent, to 11,062.78. It had been up as much as 47 points shortly after the opening bell. It was up 0.5 percent for the week. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 2.38, or 0.2 percent, to 1,176.19. It was up 1 percent for the week. The Nasdaq jumped 33.39, or 1.4 percent, to 2,468.77. It was up 2.8 percent for the week.

uS FOR Dems vow to schedule vote halloween CaLL FaLL CLEaN up! pet Maintenance. aeration. on Social Security stimulus costumes Landscaping. Irrigation. WASHINGTON (AP) — Another year without an increase in Social Security retirement and disability benefits is creating a political backlash that has President Barack Obama and Democrats pushing to give a $250 bonus to each of the program’s 58 million recipients. The Social Security Administration said Friday inflation has been too low since the last increase in 2009 to warrant a raise for 2011. The announcement marks only the second year without an increase since automatic adjustments for inflation were adopted in 1975.

This year was the first. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi vowed to set a vote after the Nov. 2 election on a bill to provide one-time $250 payments to Social Security recipients. Obama endorsed the payment, which would be similar to one included in his economic recovery package last year. Obama had pushed for a second payment last fall, but the proposal failed in the Senate when a dozen Democrats joined Republicans on a procedural vote to block it. Annual cost-of-living adjustments are automatically set each year.

Continued from Page A1. for two counts of credit card fraud. The grand jury’s second day of arraignments occurred Friday in Warren County Circuit Court, with Judge Isadore Patrick presiding. Eighteen defendants were arraigned Thursday, and among those were three other teens accused in six vehicle burglaries in the city and county during the spring and summer. The 18-member grand jury was convened Monday and completed its work Thursday. They reviewed evidence against 98 defendants in 83 cases, returning indictments in 74 of the cases, reducing two to misdemeanors and issuing “no-bills” in seven. Indictments are not made public until defendants have been arraigned — formally advised of the charges against them — in open court. Additional indictments could be made public next week by District Attorney Ricky Smith’s office. Baggett’s charges resulted from two auto burglaries reported on Redwood Road July 29, and five on Boy Scout Road — two on Aug. 12 and one each on Aug. 13 and 24. More than $4,000 in electronics, guns and jewelry were reported stolen in the seven cases, court documents showed. Baggett was arrested by deputies Sept. 16 along with two others, 17-year-old Grady Bishop, 3365 U.S. 61 South, and 20-year-old Brittany Hunt, 30 Sherard Drive.

Bishop and Hunt have not been indicted. Bunton and Robinson are charged with a non-residential burglary on Glass Road, three counts of vehicle burglary and possession of burglar’s tools, all on July 30. Along with Wheatley, they were also indicted for two counts of credit card fraud after stolen cards were used to purchase about $470 in goods at Walmart and the Kangaroo store on U.S. 61 South, court documents show. Also among those whose indictments were made public Friday was Zenobia Smith, 30, 1415 High St. Smith is accused of two counts of arson from the July 1 blaze of a four-unit residence at 2232 Grove St. Smith’s codefendant in the case, John Ragsdale, 36, of the same residence as Smith, was arraigned Thursday. Others arraigned Friday or waiving arraignment in court were: • James Allen, 55, 1408 Grove St. — embezzlement, Aug. 19. • Richard Wayne Allen, 44, 525 Feld St. — sale of a controlled substance, June 16. • Brett Damon Bagley, 32, 8905 Countryscene Way, Las Vegas — attempted aggravated assault on a police officer-extreme indifference, fleeing or eluding a law enforcement officer and malicious mischief (two counts), all on June 25. • Robert Lee Curtis, 53, 1416 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.

missioners, who manage the Ceres industrial park, have disagreed, saying there is still hope the building will bring industrial tenants. Other recommendations in the grand jury report also echoed those made by past panels, including the addition of another circuit courtroom to the county’s judicial facilities to expedite cases. Warren County, one of three in Mississippi’s 9th Circuit Court district, has two judges, Isadore Patrick and M. James Chaney, who hear criminal and civil cases in one circuit courtroom at the courthouse across Grove Street from the jail. Cases occasionally are heard at an alternate site several blocks away on Clay Street. A consultant hired in August 2008 to study needed jail facilities and optimal sites said expediting criminal cases could relieve overcrowding at the jail, which was built in 1906 and renovated in the 1970s. It can house up to 128 inmates and is usually at capacity with

pre-trial detainees. City prisoners often are jailed at the Issaquena County Correctional Facility, increasing costs to cover housing and transportation. This week, grand jurors also met with judges, prosecutors and law enforcement and toured Youth Court and the Warren County Children’s Shelter. The group’s other recommendations: • Warren County residents should contact legislators to urge them “to become involved with juvenile justice issues and implement and support substantial reform of the juvenile justice system as a long-term solution toward reducing crime in our community.” • Supervisors should continue to fully fund the children’s shelter. • The city and county should fund a firing range for law enforcement qualification examinations. • Raises for law enforcement staff should be given a high priority.

Continued from Page A1. part of their service. “This grand jury feels strongly that this issue is of vital importance to our community as it relates to the working conditions of the Warren County Sheriff’s Department as well as the safety of the jailers and prisoners, and we feel that the time has come to begin setting aside funds dedicated to this future structure,” states the report, which was issued after the grand jury completed its review of pending felony cases. Wednesday, District 1 Supervisor David McDonald told a local civic group that the Ceres Research and Industrial Interplex, off Interstate 20 near Flowers, is the best spot for a new jail. A 64,000-square-foot “spec building,” constructed in 1995 to lure business to the park, could be outfitted to house a new jail, McDonald believes. Warren County Port Com-

The company said it is seeking federal authorization to build ships for the Navy called fleet oilers, which transport fuel and freight to ships at sea. Cleveland Ship also said it has been contacted by a wind energy company about joining in the production of offshore wind energy platforms that could be built at Avondale. Avondale is building two ships in the Navy’s series of amphibious assault vessels. Northrop Grumman said it will close the yard once work is complete. In the letter to Barbour, Cleveland Ship said the priority would be to finish contract negotiations for about $5 billion of work for the Navy and Coast Guard at the

WikiLeaks damage limited, Gates says WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; No U.S. intelligence sources or practices were compromised by the posting of secret Afghan war logs by the WikiLeaks website, the Pentagon has concluded, but the military thinks the leaks could still cause significant damage to U.S. security interests. The assessment, outlined in a letter obtained Friday by The Associated Press, suggests that some of the Robert Obama adminGates istrationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worst fears about the July disclosure of almost 77,000 secret U.S. war reports have so far failed to materialize. Defense Secretary Robert Gates reported these conclusions in an Aug. 16 letter to Sen. Carl Levin, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, who had requested a Pentagon assessment. Questions persist about whether the disclosure undermined U.S. officialsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ability to maintain the allegiance of allies and people from other countries who take risks to cooperate with the U.S. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The mere fact of the disclosure erodes confidence in the ability of the military to keep secrets,â&#x20AC;? said Steven Aftergood, whose Secrecy News blog tracks trends in government openness. WikiLeaks, a self-described whistle-blower website, is believed to be preparing to release an even larger set of classified Pentagon documents on the Iraq war as early as Sunday.

Swiss celebrate digging worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longest tunnel SEDRUN, Switzerland â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Workers hugged, cheered and set off fireworks as the huge drill broke through the last stretch of rock deep in the Swiss Alps. There was delight at the end of the tunnel â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longest â&#x20AC;&#x201D; when it was completed Friday.

The joy and pride felt throughout Switzerland over digging the Gotthard Base Tunnel reflected the one cause that unites the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wealthy city dwellers with those living in traditional villages: Protecting the beauty of the mountains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Together we risked a lot,â&#x20AC;? said Swiss Transport Minister Moritz Leuenberger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Together we achieved a lot.â&#x20AC;?

KABUL, Afghanistan â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Commanding Gen. David Petraeus confirmed Friday that coalition forces have allowed Taliban representatives to travel to Kabul for peace discussions with the Afghan government, but a Taliban spokesman said all such talk is only propaganda, designed to lower the morale of the movementâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fighters.


U.S., Afghan and Taliban sources all declined to give details of the contacts, if they are taking place at all. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There have been several very senior Taliban leaders who have reached out to the Afghan government at the highest levels, and also in some cases have reached out to other countries involved in

Afghanistan,â&#x20AC;? Petraeus told reporters in London. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These discussions can only be characterized as preliminary in nature,â&#x20AC;? Petraeus said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They certainly would not rise to the level of being called negotiations.â&#x20AC;?

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Defense Department on Friday warned gay troops that if they disclose their sexual orientation now, they could still get in trouble. In a new memo, the Pentagonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top personnel chief cited a â&#x20AC;&#x153;legally uncertain environmentâ&#x20AC;? facing service members during a court battle over the 1993 â&#x20AC;&#x153;donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tellâ&#x20AC;? law. The Obama administration is appealing a ruling by a federal judge in California on Tuesday that struck down the law, which bans openly gay service members. The Defense Department has said it will comply with the court order for now â&#x20AC;&#x201D; freezing any discharge proceedings and technically ending its decadeslong policy of discriminating against gays. But it is uncertain what would happen if the court grants the administrationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request for a temporary stay on the ruling.

Mother must protect kids from ex-husband Q: Years ago, my former husband was convicted of molesting our daughter (now age 9), and his parole will end soon. Our children (we also have a son, age 11) haven’t seen him since 2002 and neither remembers him. I’ve been told he’s in a good church and is doing well. I’m trying to decide if he should have any contact with our children — even letters and pictures. I’m not comfortable with this, and I don’t want to risk hurting my kids again after we’ve made so much progress. Juli: It sounds like you’ve had to walk through FOCUS ON a lot of pain. THE FAMILY I can understand your hesitancy to reconnect your children with their father, even in light of the healing and growth he appears to have expeFOCUS ON rienced. THE FAMILY The parent-child relationship is sensitive. A child is in a completely vulnerable position, trusting a parent to provide safety and love. When a parent violates that trust in such a harmful way by abusing or molesting his children, he rightfully forgoes the privilege of parenting. Q: After two years of marriage, my wife says she doesn’t love me anymore. This is devastating because I love her with all my heart. There’s no abuse or nasty habits, we attend church regularly and we’ve both been faithful. But this is not the first marriage for either of us. Until I was asked to move out several months ago, I seemed to have a great relationship with her and her two sons. She says she’s “not happy” and, unless her feelings change in 60 days, she’ll file for divorce. What can I do? Jim: It’s impossible to know for sure without more information, but your wife seems to believe that the marriage should end simply because she doesn’t feel “in love” with you any more. The strongest marriages grow out of a rocksolid commitment on the part of both spouses — a commitment that doesn’t waver with fluctuating emotions and feelings. In fact, it’s possible that if your wife could grasp the importance of the commitment she made to you when you got married, those feelings of love could return. Regardless, it’s imperative that you and your wife find a quality marriage counselor during this critical time — one that can help you both work through your feelings and find a way back to that bedrock of commitment. •

Redzo Sekic from Bosnia, second right, sits with other imams in a class room during their first day of advanced training at the university in Osnabrueck, western Germany.

German university launches imams training By The Associated Press OSNABRUECK, Germany — Ahmed Sami spoke only Arabic when he moved from Morocco to Germany eight years ago to work as an imam. During his Friday prayer services at a mosque in western Germany, he soon noticed that many of the listeners could not understand him. “The children and teenagers don’t speak a lot of Arabic anymore,” the 31-year-old imam said. “German is their native language.” Now Sami’s part of a pilot program at the University of Osnabrueck that started this week to train imams — not only in the German language but also to steer them to preach about Islam in a way consistent with Germany’s democratic values and religious tolerance. It comes at a time of growing concern about some young German Muslims becoming radicalized in extremist mosques and turning to terrorism. This month’s terror alert in Europe was sparked by information provided by a German radical of Afghan descent who had been captured by U.S. forces in Afghanistan. “We need imams who are socialized and at home in Germany,” said Rauf Ceylan, a professor for Islamic religious education and one of the founders of the new program in Osnabrueck, in northwestern Germany. “They influence the religious orientation of Muslims in Germany, they have a big impact on whether young Muslims will practice a tolerant, conservative or extremist version of Islam.”

A woman Islamic teacher listens during training. Other European countries have been taking new measures as well. In France, which has a Muslim population of at least 5 million, the Catholic University of Paris began courses to train French imams in 2008; several imams have been expelled in recent years for what was deemed dangerous teaching. Experts say the new German aca-

demic initiative is much needed. So far, more than 90 percent of the 2,000 or so imams in Germany barely speak any German. Most come from Turkey and only stay here for a couple of years before going back home. Due to the language barrier, these foreign-sent imams can’t interact with younger community members and they are not aware of the specific problems the 4.3 million Muslims in Germany deal with on an everyday basis. Imams hold key positions within the immigrant communities. Just like pastors or rabbis, they deliver religious guidance. They are also the first contact point for parents’ worries when the children don’t perform well in school;, they mediate in marital disputes; or get involved in cultural clashes with the Christian majority in Germany. The federal government was expected to announce the establishment of up to three new university departments for Islamic studies in Germany that will include several new professorships. The goal is to educate a new generation of imams and school teachers for Islamic religious instructions who believe and teach that western values and Islam are compatible. “We need mosques that are transparent, in order to create an atmosphere of trust,” among Germans and Muslim immigrants, the integration minister of Lower-Saxony, Aygul Ozkan, said at the opening ceremony in Osnabrueck earlier this week. Ozkan, a daughter of Turkish immigrants herself, said in order to create this transparency,

it was essential that more imams learn the language and also preach in German. For Sami, learning to preach in German is one of the main attractions of the state- and federallyfunded Osnabrueck program. While he has already started translating parts of his Arabic sermons into German, he still feels the need to improve his overall language skills. Sami, one of 30 students enrolled in the one-year, tuition-free program, said he also looked forward to classes about Germany’s political system. “It’s very important for us to understand the pluralistic, German society,” he said. “It’s very different from the political system in Morocco.” The curriculum includes a visit to the German parliament in Berlin, a meeting with a rabbi at a synagogue in Osnabrueck and several classes by Christian theologians. Avni Altiner, the head of the Shura in Lower Saxony, a Muslim association made up of 80 communities that supports the new program, also stressed the need for more Germanspeaking preachers at mosques in Germany. “We don’t want foreign, fundamentalist preachers in this country, we want German imams,” Altiner said. The Osnabrueck imam training will cost the public $418,000 to fund through 2013. Starting in 2012, the university is also going to offer a threeyear bachelor degree program for imams.

Mormon church denounces cruelty toward gays By The Associated Press SALT LAKE CITY — The Mormon Church has chided its members to consider whether their attitudes toward all people — including gays — followed Christian principles, responding to activists’ demand that a church leader withdraw antigay statements. The Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest gay civil rights organization, delivered a petition letter this week carrying 150,000 signatures to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day

On D1 Middle school tough time for gay youths Saints’ headquarters, asking leader Boyd K. Packer to retract his statements in an Oct. 3 sermon that same-sex relationships are unnatural and can be overcome. Packer, 86, is the secondhighest ranking Mormon church leader and the next in line for the presidency of the 13.5 million-member faith. Activists said such rheto-

ric is harmful, factually inaccurate and can result in the kind of bullying that leads some lesbian, gay, bisexual Boyd K. and transPacker gender youth to attempt suicide. At least four gay teens killed themselves last month across the country after reportedly experiencing anti-gay bullying and harassment. In an official church statement about an hour after

the activists delivered their petition, spokesman Michael Otterson called those deaths tragic. “We join our voice with others in unreserved condemnation of acts of cruelty, or attempts to belittle or mock any group or individual that is different — whether those difference arise from race, religion, mental challenge, social status, sexual orientation, or for any other reason,” Otterson said. “Such actions simply have no place in our society.” Otterson said church history is replete with examples

of discrimination against Mormons and that members should be “especially sensitive to the vulnerable in society,” including gays. The statement also reiterated the faith’s belief that all sexual relations outside of marriage are wrong and said the church defines marriage as being only between a man and a woman. Since the 1990s, the church has worked to prevent the passage of laws legalizing samesex marriage nationwide and helped generate millions to fund California’s Proposition 8 in 2008.

The Church of the Holy Trinity, Episcopal The 21st Sunday after

devotion “Thou hast also given me the shield of Thy salvation: and Thy right hand hath holden me up, and Thy gentleness hath made me great.” Psalm 18:35 • Do you know what our churches could use a little bit more of? Courtesy among the brethren — love in the little things, love that says “please” and “thank you,” love that steps back and gives the other person first place. • It never ceases to amaze me how people so quickly lose their religion when they leave church on Sunday morning. They go to their cars in the parking lot, then cut people off in traffic. And don’t ever take someone’s “regular” seat in church. You’re seen as stealing their “rightful place in the worship service! • May God cleanse our churches of self-rightousness and pride.

SIDELINES Yankees rally late, take lead in ALCS

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The New York Yankees are already making it look like the 1990s all over again for Texas. Alex Rodriguez scooted home soon after his tworun single that nearly was a double-play grounder, and the Yankees rallied for five runs in the eighth inning to beat the Rangers 6-5 Friday night in Game 1 of the AL championship series. The Rangers still have never won a postseason game at home — even after building a 5-0 lead against CC Sabathia. Robinson Cano hit a solo homer in the seventh to begin the Yankees’ comeback. Brett Gardner’s headfirst dive for an infield hit started the big rally the next inning against C.J. Wilson and four relievers. Texas threatened in the ninth against Mariano Rivera, putting a runner on second with one out. But Rivera struck out Michael Young and retired Josh Hamilton on a grounder. New York has won 10 consecutive postseason games against the Rangers, who were knocked out of the playoffs by the Yankees in their only three previous playoffs appearances (1996, 1998 and 1999). Texas is 0-7 in home playoff games, five of those losses to the Yankees. The Yankees became the first team to win a postseason game after trailing by at least four runs in the eighth since the 2005 Astros.

Cathedral foils St. Al in rivalry

Madison Central dismantles Gators

By Jeff Byrd

MADISON — It was over after just one quarter. Madison Central came out with all guns blazing, landing a 28-0 knockout blow before fannies got warm in the seats, and went on to a 70-12 romp over Vicksburg on Friday. In a span of just over four minutes in the first quarter, the Jaguars (7-0, 4-0 Region 2-6A) did the majority of their damage. “We had opportunities,” Vicksburg coach Alonzo Stevens said. “We just didn’t capitalize. We put in a yeoman effort at times, but we dropped too many passes. They were extremely physical up front and that’s where championships are won, in the trenches.” Madison Central marched methodically down the field on the opening drive, needing only eight plays to go 68

St. Aloysius played hard and physical, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the speed of Cathedral’s Carl Hammitte. The junior wide receiver caught touchdown passes of 93 and 79 yards from quarterback Caleb Upton to lift the second-ranked Green Wave past St. Al 13-8 on Friday Despite the loss, St. Al coach B.J. Smithhart was elated with his team’s physical effort. Ford Biedenharn led the team with 118 yards rushing, and the Flashes kept Cathedral’s high-powered offense in check for most of the night. “We left it all on the field,” Smithhart said. “They just hit the two big plays. No. 4 (Hammitte) is a good ballplayer. But I was really proud of the way we played. We’re

The Flashes got a safety when a snap went past Upton from his own 12 and he

Marshall shines for Porters Chapel in win By Ernest Bowker Chris Marshall caught a short pass around the 45-yard line, then did what he does. The Porters Chapel senior weaved through five defenders, stopped on a dime to juke another, then sprinted past a couple more as if they were standing still. When a Riverfield player finally, miraculously, got a hand on Marshall’s ankle and tripped him up, the receiver merely turned it into another juke move and a touchdown. In other words, it was a normal Friday night. Marshall caught four passes for 112 yards and two touchdowns, rushed for another 33 yards and intercepted three passes on defense. He even threw in a 20-yard completion out of the wildcat formation for good measure to spearhead PCA’s 35-12 win over Riverfield. “Another day at the office for that young man. That guy will make plays not only at this level, but at the next level,” PCA coach John Weaver said. “He didn’t break ankles out there. He broke hearts.” Marshall was the star of the game, but had plenty of support. Jonah Masterson completed 9 of 13 passes for 155 yards and two TDs, and added another score on the ground. Jake Boyd and Montana McDaniel each scored a rushing touchdown as well, as the Eagles (5-4) earned a win on senior night. Cole Mills rushed for 162 yards and a touchdown for Riverfield (4-5). “The game was all right. The interceptions were big,” Marshall said. “But the only thing on my mind was winning this game and sending our seniors out with a bang.” Marshall made a big bang by blowing up Riverfield on

Porters Chapel wide receiver Chris Marshall carries the ball during the first half of Friday’s game against Riverfield. Marshall caught two touchdown passes and intercepted three on defense to lead PCA to a 35-12 victory. both sides of the ball. He caught a 31-yard pass on PCA’s first drive to set up a 4-yard TD run by McDaniel, then had another reception in the red zone to set up an 11-yard scoring run by Boyd. In the second quarter, he took a short pass and turned it into a 51-yard touchdown with a series of starts, stops and jukes to give PCA a 21-6 halftime lead.

Marshall, playing cornerback, also ended Riverfield’s last three drives of the first half with interceptions. “He’s good,” Riverfield coach Joe Meeks said. “He caught that little pass and I saw five of ours laying on the ground.” In the third, Marshall added the dagger. See PCA, Page C3.

Desperate times for Warren Central called for a desperate measure. Down six points late in the fourth quarter, the Vikings reached into their bag of tricks. Beau Wallace threw a 64-yard touchdown pass to Malcolm Grant on a double-reverse pass, and WC went on to beat Murrah 14-13 on Friday night in Jackson. Grant was wide open on the play, which started with a handoff to Gevante Titus. He gave it to tight end Buddy Cook, who in turn flipped it back to Wallace. Wallace then heaved it deep to Grant, who caught it and strolled into the end zone. Devon Bell added the PAT to break the tie with just under three minutes remaining. “We were just trying to win the game,” WC coach Josh Morgan said. “We practice those plays every day, and the timing was right to call it. It’s a longdeveloping play and the guys did a good job protecting on it.” It was the second TD See WC, Page C3.

NFL Thomas out for Saints against Tampa Bay METAIRIE, La. — Saints leading rusher Pierre Thomas will miss his third straight game on Sunday in Tampa Bay while he continues to rehabilitate a left ankle sprain. Thomas said he still feels a little pain when he jogs or tries to make a lateral cut, but also is pleased that the swelling has gone down. Thomas accounted for 280 total yards from scrimmage and one touchdown rushing in the Saints’ first three games. His injury occurred as he was being tackled near the end of a game-tying drive late in the fourth quarter of an overtime loss to Atlanta in Week 3.

Favre questionable for game vs. Dallas EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — With an NFL-record streak of 289 regular-season starts on the line, Brett Favre is listed as questionable for Minnesota’s game Sunday against Dallas. Favre had only limited practice this week for the Vikings while trying to rest his right elbow, which has been bothered by tendinitis. Coach Brad Childress said Friday he would give his quarterback the 50-50 designation on the injury report and that a final decision on Favre’s status would be made before the Cowboys game. “It will be right up ’til then. You never know coming back. Of course he took a few more turns today. I can’t look into a crystal ball and see how he wakes up tomorrow,” Childress said.

Rodgers likely to start Sunday for Packers GREEN BAY, Wis. — Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers practiced for the second straight day and appears ready to start Sunday’s game against Miami. Rodgers went through the full workout Friday, a day after he was cleared to return to practice on a limited basis following a concussion last weekend. Coach Mike McCarthy said Rodgers is ready to go and he anticipates the Pro Bowl player to play Sunday. The team lists him as probable on the injury report. Linebacker Clay Matthews (hamstring) and right tackle Mark Tauscher (shoulder) are doubtful. Tight end Jermichael Finley (knee) and linebacker Brandon Chillar (shoulder) are out.

He ties an NFL record by scoring a touchdown in his 18th game and extends his record for most consecutive games with a rushing TD, also 18.

The Vicksburg Post

Bulldogsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; secondary faces test at Florida

Rebels are hard to figure

By David Brandt The Associated Press

By David Brandt AP Sports Writer OXFORD â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Through five games, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to know what to make of Ole Miss. The Rebels have suffered two embarrassing home losses â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one to Jacksonville State, a team from the Football Championship Subdivision, and another to Vanderbilt, which is usually a Southeastern Conference doormat. But thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also been two solid wins over Fresno State and Kentucky over the past three weeks. Though far from a storybook first half of the season, Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt said he was encouraged that the Rebels were headed in the right direction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wish we could start over today,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotten better. We got back to fundamentals and got back to doing the little things right. You can never take that for granted.â&#x20AC;? After an off week, Ole Miss (3-2, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) will get a better idea if its recent resurgence is for real tonight, when it travels to face No. 8 Alabama (5-1, 2-1). The Crimson Tide lost 35-21 to South Carolina last weekend â&#x20AC;&#x201D; ending their 19-game winning streak. The game starts a brutal three-game stretch, typical of the beat-â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em-up SEC. The Rebels travel to No. 12 Arkansas on Oct. 23 and return to host No. 7 Auburn on Oct. 30. Just a few days ago, Alabama was the unbeatable behemoth of college football, but todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two-touchdown loss to South Carolina changed things, dropping the Tide eight spots from No. 1. Ole Miss defensive tackle Jerrell Powe said the Tide â&#x20AC;&#x153;got exposed.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;They showed that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a one-dimensional team that

Powe said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think South Carolina did a good job of stopping the run and (Alabama) never got anything going.â&#x20AC;? Poweâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rhetoric might be accurate, but Ole Miss has had a hard time stopping anybody on defense so far this season, much less Alabamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s powerhouse backfield of defending Heisman winner Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson. The Rebels have the SECâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worst defense, giving up 32.6 points per game. Linebacker D.T. Shackelford said stopping Ingram and


game, including 55 and 42 in the back-to-back wins against Fresno State and Kentucky. Transfer quarterback Jeremiah Masoli has learned the Rebelsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; offense quickly, throwing for 823 yards and six touchdowns. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second-leading rusher, with 262 yards and three touchdowns. Alabama coach Nick Saban certainly wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t taking the Rebels for granted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Any time you play Ole Miss, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tough game,â&#x20AC;? Saban said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Any time you play a Houston Nutt-coached team itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tough game. They bounced back with two quality wins. As Masoli has gotten more comfortable with their offense they have been very, very productive and one of the leading teams in the country in terms of scoring points.â&#x20AC;?

second was a 10-yard pass to Singleton from Rowell with just 9 seconds left in the quarter that was set up by Vicksburgâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second turnover of the half, a fumble. Vicksburg (1-7, 1-4) finally got on the board with 6:18 left in the third, as Cameron Cooksey found a wide-open Alvin Stamps for a 75-yard TD. Kawayne Gaston scored on a 34-yard scamper late in the fourth quarter. Cooksey completed 22 of 42 passes for 300 yards and one score, but also threw three interceptions. Stamps caught four passes for 131 yards and one score.

Central Hinds 49, Tallulah Academy 21 Hunter Farrior scored four touchdowns, on runs of 67, 18, 35 and 29 yards, to lead Central Hinds to a victory over Tallulah. Farrior carried the ball only seven times, but accumulated 168 yards. Quarterbck Jordan Currie added 133 yards and a touchdown on only six carries. Central Hinds (8-1) led 35-7 at halftime and cruised home in the second half. Cody Landrem scored on a 4-yard run for Tallulah (4-5), while Hunter Windham threw a pair of touchdown passes in the second half. One of Windhamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s TD tosses covered 63 yards to Rafael Saldana, and the other went for 33 yards to Josh Huffman.

downed the ball in the end zone to make it 6-2 with 2:53 left in third quarter. Carlton Campbell ripped off a 25-yard return inside Cathedralâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 30 on the ensuing free kick, but the illegal block penalty wiped it out and St. Al had to start its next drive from its 43. It went three-and-out and Cathedral (7-1, 4-0) got the ball back at its own 20. After a 1-yard run by J.D. Ealey, Upton went long to a streaking Hammitte at midfield. The ball was underthrown, but Hammitte tapped it twice before finally securing it. Running the final 50 yards to complete the 79-yard score was a formality. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was all concentration,â&#x20AC;? said Hammitte, who finished with four catches for 194 yards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We practice those types of drills in practice. I made an adjustment on the ball and made the play.â&#x20AC;? The momentum-changing play put Cathedral up 13-2 after Brent Gaudeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kick with 39 seconds left in the third quarter. Hammitteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 93-yard catch in the second quarter accounted for the Green Waveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first score, and was Uptonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only completion of the first half. Upton finished the game

5-of-13 passing for 214 yards. St. Al responded with a 19-play, 69-yard drive to get it back to a single score at 13-8. The Flashes converted four fourth downs, the biggest a 6-yard pass on fourth-and-5 from backup quarterback Carlisle Koestler to Shelton Headley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought Carlisle did a great job coming in cold and hitting some big passes,â&#x20AC;? Smithhart said. Koestler added a 7-yard run to the 8-yard line. Mac Jones pounded it in from there, scoring on a 1-yard run with 5:14 left, but Koestlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s twopoint conversion pass fell incomplete. St. Alâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defense forced a punt with 3:43 to play, giving it one last chance to pull off the upset. On fourth-and-9 from his own 21, Smithhart called a double reverse pass that went nowhere. Barrett Teller was stopped for a 7-yard loss, Cathedral ran all but the last three seconds off the clock, and a desperation pass by Koestler was incomplete as time expired. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought St. Al had a great plan,â&#x20AC;? Cathedral coach Ron Rushing said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They whipped our tail. We felt we had an advantage with (Hammitte) and hit two passes to his side but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all we did.â&#x20AC;?

PCA Continued from Page C1. After a botched onside kick gave PCA the ball at the Riverfield 44 to open the second half, the Eagles quickly moved it to the 21-yard line. On third-and-3, Masterson lofted a fade toward Marshall, who caught it at the 2 with his back to the end zone, made a subtle juke move with his shoulder and then turned and took two steps across the goal line. The score put PCA ahead

STARKVILLE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; For Johnthan Banks, seeing Florida on the football field will bring back good memories. As a true freshman last season, the Mississippi State safety returned two interceptions for touchdowns against the No. 2 Gators, the first time in school history a player accomplished that feat. The two returns â&#x20AC;&#x201D; for 100 and 20 yards, respectively â&#x20AC;&#x201D; single-handedly kept the Bulldogs in the game, though they eventually lost 29-19. It was a turning point for Banksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; career and the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s development under coach Dan Mullen after playing a solid game against a powerhouse. One year later, a much-improved Mississippi State (4-2, 1-2 Southeastern Conference) team travels to No. 22 Florida (4-2, 2-2) tonight for a rematch in The Swamp. The Bulldogs havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t won in Gainesville since 1965 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a streak spanning 15 games. Banks said during last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game against Florida, he was feeding off raw emotion, but wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t particularly disciplined. He admits the huge day against the Gators was partly thanks to athleticism and partly due to blind luck. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what I was doing,â&#x20AC;? Banks said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was just out there because I was athletic. Now I know what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing. I can read people, read defenses and can figure out what the receivers are doing. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned the game and grown up a little.â&#x20AC;? The same could be said for the Bulldogs, who have won three straight over Georgia, Alcorn State and Houston. The teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strength has been its defense, which ranks fourth in the SEC, giving up just 17.5 points per game. Banks is part of a veteran secondary that returned three of four starters â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including

On TV 6 p.m. ESPNU Mississippi State at Florida cornerback Corey Broomfield and safety Charles Mitchell â&#x20AC;&#x201D; from last season. Banks has shifted from safety to cornerback, and at 6-foot-2 and 180 pounds is able to match up against taller receivers. The Bulldogs hope to force Florida quarterback John Brantley into a few crucial mistakes. Brantley, a junior, has been solid in his first season as the starter after taking over for Tim Tebow. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s completed about 62 percent of his passes for 1,056 yards, six touchdowns and four interceptions. But heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been knocked around the last couple of games in losses to Alabama and LSU. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be battling several nagging injuries during tonightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game, including problems with his ribs, shoulder and thumb. Even so, Mullen said it would be unwise for the Bulldogs to estimate his ability. Mullen was the offensive coordinator during Brantleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first year and a half at Florida. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You could just see his talent from day one,â&#x20AC;? Mullen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was probably the most gifted passer while I was at Florida. Great pocket presence. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a really quick release â&#x20AC;&#x201D; extremely accurate thrower.â&#x20AC;? Despite his injuries during the LSU game, Brantley led the offense on a 10-play, 80-yard touchdown drive late in the fourth quarter to briefly give the Gators a 29-26 lead. LSU went on to score the final touchdown and win 33-29. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wish it would have turned out the other way â&#x20AC;&#x201D; we all do,â&#x20AC;? Florida coach Urban Meyer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But that showed us all about who Johnny is and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really proud about the way he played that last drive.â&#x20AC;?

WC of the night for Grant on a trick play. He also scored on a 15-yard reverse in the third quarter, helping the Vikings rally from a 13-0 halftime deficit. The victory allowed Warren Central (2-6, 1-3 Region 2-6A) to keep its slim playoff hopes alive, while Murrah (0-8, 0-4) remained winless and lost its 10th straight game overall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a good shot in the arm for us,â&#x20AC;? Morgan said. Antwan Bulley rushed for two first-half touchdowns for Murrah, on runs of 35 and 1 yards. Warren Central controlled the clock for most of the second half, but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a lot to show for it. Two drives ended in the red zone without a point. The defense, though, kept Murrah off the board as well. It pitched a shutout in the second half, and forced a turnover on downs after the touchdown pass to Grant. Austin Roberts batted

Richardson would have to be a group effort. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just real good backs, real strong runners, and we just have to make sure we get people to the ball,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one thing I saw with South Carolina â&#x20AC;&#x201D; you always saw burgundy jerseys around the ball.â&#x20AC;? The off week gave Ole Miss some time to get back some of its injured defensive players â&#x20AC;&#x201D; especially in the secondary. Cornerbacks Charles Sawyer, Jeremy McGee and Marcus Temple are all dealing with the effects of recent concussions, but could play against the Tide. Safeties Brishen Mathews (concussion) and Johnny Brown (knee) have also practiced this week. If the defense can improve, the Ole Miss offense has shown the ability to pile up points in hurry, scoring a league-high 37.6 points per

Suit settled against Hilton over movie Lawyers for Paris Hilton and investors have settled a lawsuit in Miami that claimed she didn’t do enough to promote her 2006 movie “Pledge This!” Court papers filed indicate a settlement was reached last week. No terms were announced and final documents must be filed by Nov. 11. Hilton’s spokeswoman and an attorney for the investors had no comment Friday. The investors originally sued the 29-year-old Paris actress and celebrity socialite for $8.3 million. Hilton But after a trial, a federal judge ruled they could not collect that much. Earlier this year, the judge said Hilton could be liable for about $160,000. Hilton insisted in trial testimony that she did all she could to promote “Pledge This!” The sorority romp was a box-office flop.

Feldman reprises role in 3rd ‘Lost Boys’ Corey Feldman has returned to “The Lost Boys” vampire movie franchise for a third film and said fans also will feel the presence of the late Corey Haim, his co-star in the first one. “Lost Boys: The Thirst” has been released straight to DVD and Blu-ray and is now in stores. Feldman reprises his starring role as vampire hunter Edgar Frog and signed on as executive producer. The original movie, released in 1987, starred Haim, Feldman and Jason Patric. It is about Corey Feldman teens who take on a gang of vampires in their town, and it was a box office success. It took two decades for “The Lost Boys” to be revived. A straight-to-DVD film with Feldman called “Lost Boys: The Tribe” was released in 2008; Haim made a cameo. A big reason for the success of “The Lost Boys” was due to the chemistry between Feldman and Haim. They were given the moniker The Coreys, and both became teen idols and recurring co-stars. Haim died in March at age 38 of natural causes. He was never intended to appear in “The Thirst” and was alive when production started. Feldman said Haim was hoping to appear in a fourth movie if it was made.

Publisher is mind behind monster bestseller By Joann Loviglio The Associated Press PHILADELPHIA — The undead have created a whole new life for Quirk Books, the brains — or rather the BRAAAINS! — behind the monster best-seller “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.” Quirk, an independent publisher that started with a series of tongue-in-cheek guides for surviving highly unlikely misfortunes, has established the hybrid “mashup” genre bending of out-of-copyright classics and horror-fied kitsch. “It has in a way become kind of a modern, or a postmodern, classic,” said Quirk president and founder David Borgenicht, whose 15-person staff works in an inconspicuous building on a cobblestonepaved side street in Philadelphia’s Old City neighborhood. “That wasn’t at all our intent. It was simply too crazy not to publish.” Ever look at something and ask yourself why you didn’t think of it first? That’s one way Quirk comes up with its titles. “When we have an idea and say, ‘If this was a book, I’d buy it,”’ Borgenicht said, “that instinct is key.” It was creative director Jason Rekulak’s idea to add lumbering hordes of discourteous flesh-eaters to Jane Austen’s 19th-century comedy of manners, “Pride and Prejudice,” spawning a monstrous hit. “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,” Quirk’s first foray into fiction, debuted in April 2009 at No. 3 on The New York Times best-seller list. It since has sold more than a million copies, been translated into nearly two dozen languages, been made into a graphic novel and an iPhone game, and been optioned for the big screen. “Quirk has great quality to their books and an incredible design sense,” said University of Baltimore professor Arnold T. Blumberg, who teaches a class on zombies in popular culture. “It’s kind of heartening: You hear about how oldfashioned print is dying and here’s a company creating

The associated press

Quirk Books president and publisher David Borgenicht

‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,’ Quirk’s first foray into fiction, debuted in April 2009 at No. 3 on The New York Times bestseller list.

Books published by Quirk things that get widespread attention, good-looking books that stand out on the shelf, that you want to own.” The book’s success says as much about the iconic nature of “Pride and Prejudice” as it does about the popularity of zombies, he added. “Jane Austen, and that one book especially, has become a major cultural touchstone for so many people,” he said. The runaway success of “Zombies” established Quirk, a privately held company that does not release financial data, as creator of the mashup genre. It also launched a cottage industry of copycats from “Jayne Slayre” to “Little Vampire Women.” “To some extent it saturates

the market, but at the same time we know what made ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’ work wasn’t just the title,” Borgenicht said. “It’s a lot more thoughtful, hard work in order to create something that will be remembered and read, that goes beyond being just a gratuitous novelty.” When the blogosphere started buzzing months before the release of “Zombies,” Rekulak knew the company had a hit and wanted to capitalize on the momentum. He quickly came up with “Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters,” released just five months after its predecessor, which also became a bestseller with more than 375,000 copies in print.

“There are discussions and articles about the (mashup) trend, what it all means, where it came from. I can say undisputedly that it came from Jason at Quirk Books, directly from his head,” said “Sea Monsters” author Ben H. Winters. Winters, who also wrote sci-fi Tolstoy mashup “Android Karenina” for Quirk, said the company’s success lies in its “clearly defined aesthetic.” “It’s parody but it doesn’t feel cynical,” he said. “They’re laid back, funny, interesting people doing laid back, funny, interesting work.” Quirk recently left the Victorian era for space, the final frontier, with “Night of the Living Trekkies” and its heroes using their sciencenerd knowledge to battle zombies descending on the hallowed ground of a Star Trek convention. “All the Trekkie stuff checks out,” Rekulak said.

Jolie questions decision to deny her film permit SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) — Angelina Jolie has questioned Bosnia’s decision to withdraw her film permit, saying Friday it was based on false rumors that her movie will be a love story about a Bosniak woman and a Serb man who raped her during the country’s war. But the actress, and two members of her film crew in Sarajevo, declined to say what the plot of her directorial debut will be, and that could make it difficult to allay the concerns of the movie’s main opponents: Bosnia’s wartime rape victims. Jolie said in a written statement Friday that it will be a shame if “unfair pressure based on wrong information” prevents her crew from shooting her film in Bosnia.” It’s working title is “Untitled Love Story.” She offered to meet with wartime rape victims in Bosnia and to clarify misunderstandings that led Sarajevo’s culture minister, Gavrilo Grahovac, to deny the permit. “My hope is that people will hold judgment until they have seen the film,” Jolie said. The movie was supposed to be shot partly in Bosnia in November, but Grahovac revoked

the permit t h i s we e k under pressure from the Association of Women, Victims of War, which represents the Angelina several thouJolie sand mainly Muslim Bosniak women who were raped during Bosnia’s 1992-95 war. Grahovac was not available for comment Friday. Sarajevan Fedja Stukan, who plans to act in the movie, defended Jolie’s project, telling Bosnian media that “we are not making a movie about a crazy woman falling in love with her rapist. We are not sick and perverted.” Jolie’s Sarajevo producer, Edin Sarkic said Friday that the rumor about the rape victim falling in love with a rapist is “insane.” But he also said his contract with Jolie prevents him from disclosing details about the script. Instead, Sarkic said, he resubmitted the movie permit application to Grahovac on Wednesday, along with a full script, and expects the minister to grant a new permit.

Woman, 82, busted for driving 110 mph Oregon State Police gave an 82-year-old woman a ticket for driving 28 miles per hour over her age and twice the posted speed limit of 55 mph. A trooper spotted Marcia Brandon’s car going 110 mph Thursday on a highway west of Gresham. She said she was on her way to an appointment and wasn’t aware she was going that fast. Brandon was given a ticket for $1,103.

Bakira Hasecic, the leader of the Association of Women, Victims of War, told the AP that she has not read the script, but said: “From what I heard, it is about a victim in a rape camp falling in love with her rapist, and that’s not only impossible but the idea is insulting.” She said, “We, the victims, do

not want to be portrayed that way and we complained.” In the immediate aftermath of the war, the issue of mass rape of women during the conflict was a taboo topic in Bosnia. But the victims then came forward and formed the association that fights for their rights in the courts.

Boys with their funny expressions are persistent fact of life Dear Abby: I’m a 12-yearold girl with a big problem. My class recently learned about reproduction. All of the girls accepted it in a mature manner, but it’s another story with the boys. Now all the boys look at me funny when I walk through the hall. It makes me feel awkward. Should I ignore them, or should I say something? — Embarrassed in Michigan Dear Embarrassed: Right now, I suspect most of your classmates are feeling awkward. A frank discussion about reproduction has been known to make students older than you uncomfortable. It is, however, a part of life — and contrary to what some may think, ignorance isn’t bliss. Acting the way the boys are



is normal for their age. But if it continues, rather than saying anything to them — which might encourage more of the same — talk to a teacher about it. Dear Abby: Shortly before I started college, a relative introduced me to “Paul,” who would be attending the same school, and told us we were distant cousins. Paul and I became friends. We socialized together often and all our friends knew us as cousins.


BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION If tomorrow is your birthday: The desire to travel and acquire knowledge from personal experiences is something that’s always with you, and it’s likely to be even more prevalent in upcoming months. You’ll find the means and avenues to satisfy these urges. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — It behooves you to keep your day as unstructured as possible, because social happenings that aren’t prearranged are likely to turn out to be the most fun. Hang loose and see what happens. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Plan something to do with the family that you know everyone will enjoy, even if it is as simple as making some popcorn or inviting some friends over. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Don’t waste the fact that you are a fast thinker and that your ideas are likely to be ingenious. Be ready to apply your sharp mind to a number of productive uses. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — There are strong possibilities that the day could turn out to be a profitable one, which you will have little to do with bringing about. It could happen through a strange chain of events. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Strive to initiate some fun happenings instead of just hanging back in the rear ranks. You’ll have little trouble convincing your peers that you belong at the head of the pack. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — You can trust any judgment calls you have to make because they will be predicated upon your excellent deductive reasoning, as well as your intuitive perceptions. They’ll be right on the money. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Be careful when meeting new people, because you tend to be a bit more gullible than usual and could be subject to being taken in on someone’s latest deception or scheme. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Don’t give up too quickly on achieving something you want. Although things might not go as you had hoped, victory can be had even after a struggle. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — You might be the recipient of some unusual but heartwarming information. What you learn could actually fit into something that you’ve been hoping would happen. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Your attention may be drawn to some kind of hidden factor in your life, which will make you want to learn more about what makes you tick in certain instances. It’ll be worthy of further investigation. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — There’s a good chance that you could get an opportunity to make a new friend, one with whom you will be able to share many common interests. Be responsive to people you meet. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — An ingenious idea you come up with may be of great interest to someone whom you would like to impress. It’ll be your ticket to getting close to him/her.

TWEEN 12 & 20

BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: A student wrote to you saying that his principal wouldn’t allow him to start the school day with a short prayer over the intercom. He was told no because the school board said it would be a violation of the separation of church and state. Nowhere in the Constitution does it mention the separation of church and state. This boy had the constitutional right to say a prayer over the school intercom — those who didn’t want to hear it could plug their ears. I am surprised that you agreed the boy should not say a prayer over the intercom. In your opinion, why is this so terribly wrong? — Mom Mom: The Constitution forbids the establishment of a state religion — that is, government endorsement of one religion as superior to all others. The practical effect of this principle in a public high school setting is that if one religious group gets to use the PA system for a prayer, they all do. When I was a principal, I once had to make a decision on this issue. A Youth for Christ group asked me if we could start the day with a morning Christian prayer before daily announcements. I refused their request. I personally believe in Christian prayer, but I was paid to be a principal for all of the students at a tax-supported school, and some of the students were non-Christian. I could have given non-Christian students the same opportunity to say a morning prayer over the intercom. However, with over 3,000 students of diverse religious backgrounds, I felt it best to allow all students of various religious beliefs to meet for up to 15 minutes every Friday morning in various parts of the campus to worship. Only students of our high school could attend. Parents and clergy were banned. This program didn’t make everybody happy, but those who were serious about their religious beliefs were satisfied. Most of the students liked the program; it was some parents who protested. I told them that if they wanted their child to participate more fully in their religion at school, they should enroll their child in a parochial school or home school their child. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service. E-mail him at rwallace@Copley News Service.

It wasn’t until after graduation that our parents told us that while we have a relative in common, it is by marriage, and we are not related to each other. Paul and I have a lot in common, and he has expressed an interest in pursuing a relationship with me. Paul is a great guy, but I’m reluctant to date him because all our friends think we’re related. It almost feels like we are doing something wrong. Can you please share your opinion on this situation? — It’s All Relative Dear All Relative: There is nothing to stop you and Paul from becoming romantically involved if you’re both leaning in that direction. The way to deal with it would be to

tell your friends, before you start being seen together, how “amusing” it is that you were led to believe the two of you were related, when it turns out that you AREN’T. It was all a big mistake. (Ha-ha.) That should quell most of the gossip you’re concerned about. And if you’re asked directly, repeat what you told me. Dear Abby: I have been involved with a man, “Seth,” for more than two years. We share mutual interests and he makes me laugh. For the most part we’re happy, but I have one concern. I have yet to receive flowers from Seth, although he has mentioned many times that he had sent them to his ex while they were together.

Is it wrong for me to expect flowers, or should I just forget the idea and leave it alone? — Waiting for Roses in Houston Dear Waiting: Not knowing Seth, I can’t say whether his unwillingness to send you flowers is because after what happened with his ex he considers them a bad investment or whether he’s just cheap.

But because the absence of flowers is bothering you, ask HIM about the omission.

Boy, 12, should be tested for bedwetting problem Dear Dr. Gott: My son is 12 years old and had never wet the bed until recently. Now, all of a sudden, he has wet the bed for the past seven nights in a row. We have taken him to see a doctor, but thus far they have taken a urine sample that came back normal. Dear Reader: Bedwetting, also known as nighttime incontinence or nocturnal enuresis, is common in children up to age 6 or 7. This is because bladder control might not be fully established, meaning the bladder might not signal that it is full, causing the child not to know that he or she needs to urinate. Most children outgrow bedwetting. By age 5, 15 percent of children wet the bed, and this is further reduced to less than 5 percent between ages 8 and 11. It affects boy more than girls. ADHD and a family history of bedwetting increase the child’s risk. Most cases of bedwetting are simply due to a slow development of the central nervous system. It might also be the result of a small bladder, a hormone imbalance, urinarytract infection, diabetes, sleep apnea, chronic constipation, stress or a defect in the neurological or urinary system. It is never the result of the child being too lazy or unclean. His pediatrician or a pediatric urologist should examine him. You said your son had a urine sample taken but don’t mention for what he was tested. There are different types of urine tests with the most basic done in office with the aid of a small testing strip to determine if there are abnormal levels of protein, white blood cells, etc. This test is insufficient at detecting an infection; therefore, he should undergo a clean-catch urine test, which will then be sent to a laboratory to check for bacteria. If present, the lab will then determine which antibiotic will be most effective in eliminating the infection. It will also be important to notify the physician of any other symptoms he may be having, even if they seem to be unrelated. Treatment isn’t necessary in most cases but varies depending on the cause in those instances when it is. It is most important to be calm and understanding with the child. Moisture alarms are small, battery-operated devices available at most pharmacies that connect to a moisture-sensitive pad on the child’s bed or pajamas and go off in the presence of moisture. This may help a child wake up in time to stop the flow of urine and get to a toilet before completely emptying the bladder in bed. This can take up to 12 weeks, so it is important to be patient. Treating any underlying cause should also be beneficial in reducing or eliminating bedwetting. If time and retraining don’t help, medication may help. Desmopressin acetate can boost natural levels of antidiuretic hormone, which slows nighttime urine production. It does carry the serious side



effect of seizures so it’s not prescribed for minor cases of bedwetting if other remedies are appropriate. Another medication is a class of drugs known as anticholinergics, which calm the bladder and are often prescribed to treat overactive bladder. A final option is imipramine, which may change the child’s sleep/waking pattern and increase the amount of time that urine can be held or reduce the amount of urine produced. It might also be helpful to set up a routine for times when there are bedwetting accidents.

Singer-songwriter Austin Brown

Newest star of Jackson family is Austin Brown By Ryan Pearson AP entertainment writer LOS ANGELES — Over a decade ago, when Michael Jackson was working on what would become his final album, a young producer named Rodney Jerkins set up shop in the dance room of the singer’s Neverland Ranch. A youngster approached Jerkins with a bold swagger. “I’m going to work with you. We’re going to work together on my album,” Austin “Auggie” Brown told Jerkins, who flashed back to his own introduction to Jackson as a teenager. “I’m looking at this 13-year-old kid and I’m seeing all this ambition and it reminded me of myself the first time I met his uncle,” Jerkins recalls. “I believe that when you speak things into existence, it happens. ... I said, ‘I’ll be ready when you’re ready.”’ Brown — the son of Jackson’s older sister Maureen, known as Rebbie — is now 24, and has been working at Jerkins’ Los Angeles studio for months to create his debut album, “85.” He’s a serious and passionate student of music and dance, with handsome, distinctively angular facial features that recall his uncle in the “Thriller” period. Surrounded by musicians in his formative years, “I was a sponge,” he said. “My brother-in-law Rex, who taught me how to produce, he would show me how to play like a Janet song or something. And then I’d go to her and be like, ‘Watch this!”’ he said. “I wanted to learn and to learn the songs. Play the songs, and then get the reaction from playing it and show people. I wanted to figure out the music, not just be around the music.” Perhaps the only surprise is that Brown didn’t enter the family business sooner. “It was really important to me to develop,” Brown said in an interview alongside Jerkins, with his mother looking on quietly. “First and foremost, music is a privilege. It’s not an entitlement for me. So I wanted to get better and get to the point where I felt like I was ready. And I did it on my own. I wanted to write with my own people, meet people for myself. Really go through the grind that everyone has to go through.” See Brown, Page D3.

High-schooler Isaiah Baiseri and his parents, Russell and Yvette Baiseri, stand in their Glendora, Calif., home. Baiseri, who heads a gay-straight alliance at his school, said he began to realize he was gay when he was in sixth grade.

For gay youths, middle school can be toughest time By The Associated Press NEW YORK — By the time she was in eighth grade, Rory Mann was so aware of the differences between her and other students that she couldn’t bear to enter the cafeteria. Instead, she ate lunch alone on the cold, hard bathroom floor, propped against a wall. Sometimes Mann, who had known she was gay for about a year but dared not tell anyone, would cut herself on the arms with a razor blade. Her long sleeves hid the evidence of her misery from classmates and family. “Everyone’s trying to figure out who they are in middle school,” says Mann, now 18 and a high school senior in Newport, R.I. “They turn into vicious people. They are really insecure, and they exploit someone else’s differences so people won’t see who THEY are.” With recent stories of anti-

The associated press

Protesters stand outside Hamilton Middle School in Cypress, Texas, earlier this month to speak against anti-gay bullying. A Hamilgay bullying and tragic suicides of gay youth at the forefront of the national conversation, experts say they are increasingly seeing evidence that middle school is the toughest time for gay youths — a time of intense self-discovery, but also one

when bullying and intolerance is at its peak. Evidence collected over the past few years indicates it’s at this age — 11 to 13 or 14 — when many youngsters realize they are gay and consider coming out. Some take the plunge, and some don’t. Yet

it’s a difficult time for such identity struggles, because it’s an age when being different feels the most painful. “We know that kids are much more likely to be cruelhearted then,” says Michele Borba, an educational psychologist and frequent

commentator on parenting issues. “They’ll pick on anyone who is different. Peer pressure is huge. Kids desperately want to fit in and be included.” Indeed, the rates of violence against gay youths in middle school are almost twice as bad as in high school, says Eliza Byard, executive director of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network. She says 20 percent of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender high school students questioned in a 2007 school climate survey reported physical assault, while 39 percent of LGBT middle schoolers reported the same. And yet the answer is not to stay closeted, says Byard and others. Her group’s 2009 study found that coming out, while obviously making students a target for bullies, is also a hugely positive thing for See Gay, Page D3.

Nectar, host plants are best bets for attracting butterflies Culinary herbs such as parsley, dill, rosemary, garlic chives and thyme are garden favorites of Donna and Paul Ingram. The discovery of lots of little caterpillars munching on an overgrown dill plant several years ago sent Donna on a quest that resulted in the development of a small, but highly successful, butterfly garden visible from the large picture windows of their home office. Before they began construction, Donna read everything she could find related to butterfly gardening. She attended educational presentations and visited the display gardens during the Fall Flower and Garden Fest



in Crystal Springs. A sunny area adjacent to her rose garden seemed the best choice. Nearby hedges would provide shelter and a windbreak where the butterflies could rest after feeding or mating. Beds were developed and the heavy clay was replaced with soil enriched with organic material, and sand to assure good drainage. Butterfly favorites such as

Butterflies Paul Ingram has photographed in his and his wife’s garden. buddleia; asclepias, or butterfly weed; lantanas; asters, passion flower vine; Mexican heather; daylilies and bearded iris dominate the garden and provide both nectar and color. Goldenrod, a native that some find offensive in flower beds, is another nectar source the Ingrams allows to grow and

flower. Butterflies need a continuous source of nectar from early spring throughout the growing season. Azaleas, fruit tees, clover, thistle, violets, snapdragon, phlox, dianthus, dandelions and daisies are excellent choices. Azaleas, abundant in the enclosed front yard at the

Ingram home, bloom earlier than most of the butterfly garden plantings. Donna has learned the importance of host plants. Butterflies choose a host plant on which to lay their eggs so the tiny caterpillars that hatch will have an adeSee Garden, Page D3.

The problem, many say, is that middle schools are often woefully unprepared to combat the kind of harassment or bullying aimed at gay students, whether these students are out or not. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some teachers have mistakenly thought that if they address these issues in middle school that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re addressing sex, which would be inappropriate,â&#x20AC;? says Carolyn Laub, executive director of the GayStraight Alliance Network, a San Francisco-based group that helps students form gay rights groups at their schools. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People think, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talk about these issues in middle school.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; But that is so far from the truth.â&#x20AC;?

Executive director of the Gay-Straight Alliance Network stand the early signs of that sort of harassment, Laub adds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot if it targets students who are nongender conforming, for example boys who wear clothes considered stereotypically feminine,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s often not about sexual behavior at that age.â&#x20AC;? Isaiah Baiseri, a high school senior from Glendora, Calif., says he started to realize he was gay when he was 11, in the sixth grade. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I already had a girlfriend,

a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;kidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; girlfriend, but I felt uncomfortable at the thought of holding hands with her,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was trying to do the straight thing. It just wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t working out.â&#x20AC;? It took a gay-themed teen novel, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Geography Club,â&#x20AC;? to bring things home to Baiseri. Even then, it took four more years before he came out. His middle school years were particularly miserable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a really unhappy time. Middle school in general is unhappy,â&#x20AC;? he says. Peer

pressure was intense. In an environment where he always heard the dreaded expression, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s SO gay,â&#x20AC;? Baiseri felt he needed to keep his sexual orientation quiet to avoid being stereotyped. The worst part came at the start of ninth grade, when a group of girls he thought were his friends turned out to be mocking him on MySpace. He was crushed, and says that at the worst moments he considered suicide, though never to the point where he made specific plans. Then he threw himself into his studies. He finally came out the following year, and now heads a gay-straight alliance group at his school. Experts agree that kids are coming out sooner nationwide.

Trees such as oaks, fruit trees, sassafras, willow, dogwood, black cherry, tulip poplar, cottonwood and black locust serve as larval host to many of the most common butterflies. The Ingram home overlooks the Mississippi River, where many of these trees are quite plentiful. Herbs, daisies, clovers, grasses, verbena, snapdragon, violets, passion flower, members of the pea family, hibiscus and mallow are also preferred larval food sources. Donna continues to grow herbs, but have learned to plant enough for cooking and to share with the caterpillars. She tries to be as organic as possible, refraining from the use of pesticides, except on roses. Gardeners across the country are using fewer pesticides, and experts tell us

it is having a positive effect on the number of butterflies seen over the last decade. Butterflies are fascinating and beautiful creatures. And, butterfly-watching is a growing hobby in Mississippi, says â&#x20AC;&#x153;Butterflies of Mississippi,â&#x20AC;? a Field Checklist publication of the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science. Nearly 150 species are found in Mississippi, and the spicebush swallowtail, the official state butterfly, lives throughout the state. Establishing a butterfly garden as the Ingrams have done will give you and your family a much better chance to view, enjoy and possibly photograph these interesting creatures. â&#x20AC;˘

Brown Continued from Page D1. To be sure, Brown first hit a stage when he was 3 at one of his motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concerts in Japan. It was family connections that led him to talented dance coaches in Las Vegas and to Jerkins, and family connections that prompted interest from People magazine, Access Hollywood and MTV even before the release of his first song. But Brown makes it clear that he wants to succeed based on his own talent. Brown said his album will blend classic soul and 1980s pop sounds with contemporary dance beats. He cites as influences Billy Idol, George Michael, Prince and his uncle â&#x20AC;&#x201D; particularly when it comes

research group, found in a study of California families conducted between 2000 and 2005 that the coming-out age is now on average 13.4 years, as opposed to 14-16 in the late 1980s to mid-1990s and the 20s in 1970. Project director Caitlin Ryan says youngsters several decades ago may have sensed they were different but werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite able to label it. Now, she says, they are much savvier, thanks to the vast amount of information available on the Web, as well as TV shows such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Glee,â&#x20AC;? which features an openly gay character at high school and appeals to kids as young as 8 or 9. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Forty years ago there was no openly gay Oscar host like Ellen DeGeneres, or the Web, or â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Glee,â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; says Ryan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Forty years ago a kid might have made his discovery in the

Jerkins said.

Grab your fruits and vegetables and make a vehicle that goes the distance. A Lunch Box Derby is in the works! Apples, oranges, pineapples, limes strawberries, grapes, cherries, cucumbers, carrots, turnips, lemons mushrooms, black and green olives,

brussel sprouts and any other produce you can think of will no doubt be used by kids to create fruit and vegetable vehicles for a Lunch Box Derby!

WHOOPS! One of the Lunch Box Derby cars crashed into these words and scrambled them. Can you unscramble them to reveal the names of some fruits and veggies?

In a Lunch Box Derby competition, cars are rolled down a ramp to see which one goes the farthest. The idea is to show that eating five fruits and vegetables a day gives you energy to â&#x20AC;&#x153;go the distanceâ&#x20AC;? just as fuel powers a car. Create a healthy snack that has something from at least three of the five food groups. Write the names of the foods you selected from each of the three food groups. Then give your snack a name and write that in the center of the star.

A Lunch Box Derby car should have at least five different kinds of fruits or vegetables. You can use other materials, such as toothpicks, skewers and rubber bands.
