Blaze hits downtown Crystal Springs

Trick-or-treating in Vicksburg and Warren County will be from 5:30 until 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 31.

From staff and AP reports At least three buildings in downtown Crystal Springs were destroyed in a fire early this morning, which cut power to a section of town and closed four schools. Police said the fire began at 1 a.m. at Big D’s Restaurant on South Jackson Street and spread to other buildings. Broadcast reports said one structure damaged by flames, the Trinity Cafe, dates to about 1927. No injuries were reported. Crystal Springs elementary, middle and high schools, plus Brushy Creek Headstart, were closed today while electricity was being restored. Entergy is “in the process of restoring service to every customer that can take power,” Kenny Goza, a customer account manager based in Brookhaven whose office covers Crystal Springs, said this morning. Goza didn’t have an exact number of customers affected, saying it was mostly businesses. He said Entergy crews had been working since 1 a.m., and hoped to have power restored to buildings not destroyed in the blaze by midmorning.

Peggy Napoli, left, sits in the shade Saturday as customers browse her wares.

Crystal Springs woman’s work keeps her going By Manivanh Chanprasith Peggy Napoli has never let anything stop her from doing what she loves, not even a wheelchair. The 58-year-old Crystal Springs woman got into the business of creating life-size yard sculptures and fountains more than 16 years ago. Eleven years ago, Napoli was injured in a

four-wheeler accident that left her paralyzed from the waist down. “My son and I were riding on my property,” she said, “and as we went up a hill, one of them flipped on me. It slid backward, turned sideways and rolled. It messed up my spinal cord.” Her son, now 29, was also injured, but without major complications. Napoli said she never

questioned whether or not she would continue with her business, Four Seasons Garden Art, which she purchased from a Jackson couple who started it some 60 years ago. “The couple did their own sculpting, their own molds, their own paintings and casting,” she said Saturday as she and her husband, Gene Sills, displayed their wares at the 32nd annual Fall Flower & Garden Fest in Crystal Springs.

“They stayed and taught me how to do all of that when I bought the business from them. I learned to do a lot of the artwork myself.” Before the accident, Napoli said she was involved in every aspect of the business and, for the most part, that hasn’t changed. “You do have limitations,” she said. “But I’m in all phases of the business. We do a lot of custom work for people and a lot of fountains

Warren deputy named Rolling Fork police chief By Manivanh Chanprasith A Warren County sheriff’s deputy and former Rolling Fork police officer has been named chief of the Rolling Fork Police Department. The five-member city board of aldermen agreed unanimously Thursday to hire Robert Taylor, a 16-year law enforcement veteran. “We need him to correct the concerns we have,” Alderman Charles Russell said. “We feel like he is a strong

person on policies and procedures,” added Rolling Fork Mayor James Denson, who did not have a vote in appointing Taylor. “He’ll bring lots of discipline and organization to the police department.” Taylor, 45, was chosen from 18 applicants from across the state. He will supervise a department of seven officers and safeguard the town of around 2,500 people. “I’ll be bringing back the standard before I left,” he See Taylor, Page A7.

Two teens charged in Rosedown burglary Two Vicksburg teens were arrested Sunday in a residential burglary reported two days earlier. Charles Harris, 19, 819 Walnut St., and a 16-year-old were arrested at their homes Sunday. The two are accused in a Friday night burglary of a home in the 1500 block of Rosedown Street, said Vicksburg police Lt. Bobby Stewart. Reported missing were a Nintendo Wii game system valued at $300, an Xbox game system valued at $375 and a PSP portable game system valued at $200. The game consoles were found at the homes of both suspects, Stewart said. Harris was in the Warren County Jail without bond, awaiting a court hearing this morning.

Retooled Elvis song hits air waves, marks new take on King MEMPHIS (AP) — A restyled version of the Elvis Presley hit “Suspicious Minds” hit radio stations today, part of an album being released later this year featuring newer, more contemporary takes on many of his hits. “Suspicious Minds” is the first single off “Viva Elvis-The Album,” set for mass release Nov. 9. The 12-track compilation is a companion piece to the Las Vegas show “Viva Elvis” by Cirque du Soleil, which began in February. The new “Suspicious Minds” and the other reworked songs on the album could strike a dissonant chord with Elvis’ older fans. But the minds behind the new album said the new tracks won’t lose the qualities that made them hits in the 1950s and ’60s. “I can understand why the purist may be cautious and hesitant, but the new album is a unique way to bring Elvis’ music to a whole new younger audience,” said Tom Cording, vice president of media relations for Legacy Recordings, Sony Music Entertainment’s

Elvis Presley catalog division. The Elvis machine is relying on fans who never saw him in person to keep revenue pouring in. Last year, Elvis generated more than $60 million in revenue from royalties, licensing and Graceland’s operations, according to Securities and Exchange Commission filings by CKx Inc., which owns Elvis Presley Enterprises. Erich van Tourneau produced and arranged the new songs, fusing thousands of samples of Elvis’ music and voice with more modern

styles like punk, garage rock and hip-hop. Other tracks feature voice-overs and sound effects. For instance, “Suspicious Minds” opens with Elvis’ soulful, echoing voice and prominent piano notes, then shifts into a guitar intro that evokes memories of U2’s classic anthem “Bad.” The song has a strong drum and guitar component without losing the sing-along quality of the original. Other songs on the new album include “King Creole,” “Burning Love,” and “Love Me Tender,” many sounding like they were released after Elvis died in August 1977. The danceable and energetic “Blue Suede Shoes” has elements of Kenny Loggins’ 1984 hit “Footloose,” and it features a blues harmonica. “That’s All Right,” meanwhile, possesses the more frenetic style of Jet’s 2003 rock ’n’ roll anthem “Are You Gonna Be My Girl.” “Heartbreak Hotel” has traditional blues elements while incorporating rock guitar and a solid contribution from the

horn section. And Elvis sounds fine on “Love Me Tender,” but female singer Dea Norberg’s presence seems out of place. Still, Elvis’ talents and the original material are the foundation for the new releases, even if some of them seem overwrought or overproduced. The album’s reception seems to be mixed. For instance, Miami oldies station WMXJFM plans to play the new version of “Suspicious Minds.” “That still has great legs,” WMXJ program director Bill Stedman said of the song. “It wasn’t an accident that they chose it as their first release.” But Jerry Dean, operations manager for Entercom Memphis’ five radio stations, said he probably won’t play it. Elvis — a native of Tupelo, Miss. — lived in Memphis and is still the city’s most well-known figure. “Elvis is so beloved that when you start changing his original music, then the die-hard fans don’t like it,” Dean said. “Some things just shouldn’t be remade.”

State high court won’t hear appeal in crash that killed MC three By Jack Elliott Jr. The Associated Press JACKSON — The Mississippi Supreme Court is now saying it won’t hear appeals in two cases, including a high-profile felony DUI case from Harrison County involving the traffic deaths of three college students. The Supreme Court reversed a decision on Thursday to hear an appeal from Ray Thomas Gore, who was given a life sentence in Scott County for the 2008 slaying of a Forest woman. Two weeks earlier, the justices in a 4-3 order reversed a decision to hear the appeal of Krystal Marie Teston

in the DUI case. The decision came after the court heard oral arguments in the case in July. In both instances, the court said its decisions to review the cases were “improvidently granted,” meaning the cases should not have come to the justices in the first place. Gore was convicted of murder in the shooting death of Jacqueline Ford at a Forest apartment complex. Prosecutors said the shooting occurred during an argument between the two. On appeal, Gore contended jurors should have been told they could have considered a conviction for manslaughter instead of murder.

Manslaughter carries a maximum 20-year sentence. The state Court of Appeals, in upholding the conviction last year, said Gore confessed to the crime in a statement to police and testimony at the trial did not support a manslaughter instruction to the jury. In a 7-2 ruling, the Supreme Court dismissed Gore’s appeal, which allowed his conviction to stand. However, Justice Jim Kitchens had concerns that Gore’s jury did not get to hear Gore’s side of the case. Kitchens said Gore contended the shooting was an accident and that option was not presented to the jury. Kitchens said while the defense

didn’t ask for the jury to be given an accident instruction, the evidence was such that the trial judge should have stepped in and done so. “It is neither for us nor the trial court to speculate whether Gore’s claim of an accidental discharge was truthful, or even whether it was reasonable,” Kitchens wrote. “It is, however, as a matter of due process or law, incumbent on the judiciary to ensure that each and every party’s theory of a case is properly laid before the jury for its decision.” In the Harrison County case, Teston was convicted of four counts of felony DUI in 2007. She was sentenced to 60 years in prison with 30 years sus-

Two sought in Jackson Walmart shooting JACKSON, Miss. — Police have issued capital murder warrants for the two men wanted in connection with a fatal shooting in a Walmart parking lot near Mississippi 18 in Jackson. Capital murder warrants were issued late Saturday for 21-year-old Alan Palmer and 19-year-old Lee Corentin. They’re accused of shooting Bruce Davis Jr. on Friday about 10 a.m. Davis was shot in the chest and died about 30 minutes later at a local hospital.

Man gets 5 years for sexual assault LAKE CHARLES, La. — A Ragley man has been sentenced to five years in prison on a sexual assault charge involving a girl who was 3 years old when the alleged abuse began. Robert Williams Bell, 42, may have escaped a much longer sentence due to the way the legal statute dealing with aggravated rape was worded at the time of some of the alleged abuse. Bell had been charged with sexual battery and aggravated rape, though he was convicted on a lesser count

Peavey to expand Meridian operations MERIDIAN, Miss. — Meridian-based Peavey Electronics Corp. says it will add 25 new jobs locally to accommodate a new line of guitars.

He says Peavey is moving the company’s equipment to Meridian where Peavey will manufacture the high-end guitars.

Barq’s family suing Coca-Cola NEW ORLEANS — The great-grandchildren of the founder of Barq’s root beer

are suing the Coca-Cola Company, claiming Coca-Cola doesn’t legally own their share of Barq’s. The suit, filed in U.S. District Court in Louisiana, outlines the long and complicated history of the Barq’s family in Louisiana and Mississippi dating back more than a century. The suit seeks an unspecified amount. The estate of Arthur Louis Robinson filed the suit. Robinson’s children claim CocaCola didn’t have the legal right to purchase a certain one-third share of the Barq’s company when its acquisition was made in 1995, despite signed contracts to the contrary. Coca-Cola purchased Barq’s for $91 million. The suit ultimately seeks to overturn an agreement Robinson signed in 1971 giving over his portion of the company to his sisters.

Third suspect arrested in Bolton man’s death BOLTON, Miss. — A third person has been arrested in the shooting death of a 23-year-old Bolton man. Lt. Jeffery Scott of the

Hinds County Sheriff’s Department said Christopher Smith of Bolton was arrested Sunday and charged with accessory to murder. Scott said Smith is alleged to have been involved in the Aug. 2 death of Robert Hill. Scott said two bothers, 18-year-old James Atkinson and 21-year-old Lipatrick Atkinson, were charged with murder in August. He said robbery is believed to be the motive.

Five teens charged with Alcorn vandalism CORINTH, Miss. — Alcorn County authorities have charged five teenagers with felony malicious mischief stemming from vandalism at Alcorn Central High School. The Oct. 7 vandalism leading to the arrests occurred when fluorescent orange paint was used to write obscene words and pictures on the school field house, driveway, football field and some senior picture advertisements. Authorities said that school officials will consider installing surveillance cameras.

New Miss. State lab to be energy efficient STARKVILLE (AP) — Construction soon will begin on a new $1.3 million research facility near the edge of the Mississippi State University campus. When complete, scientists will use the 6,635-square-foot structure, planned behind the USDA Forest Service’s Southern Research Station, to conduct research on products used to control termites, beetles and other wood-destroying insects. Construction is scheduled to be to completed by April 2011. The Wood Products Insect Research Unit within the Forest Service’s Southern Research Station will work in the facility’s four new laboratories, growth room and supporting space. Scientists with the unit now work in laboratories at Mississippi State. The new facility will provide some much-needed work space for researchers partici-

pended. The Appeals Court upheld her conviction in 2008. Prosecutors claimed she was on drugs at the time of a 2004 traffic accident on Interstate 10 that killed three Mississippi College students and injured two others. Teston’s attorneys contended Teston was so distraught because of the crash that she took the pain medication Lorcet, or hydrocodone, after the accident to calm her nerves. That’s why, they said, the medication was in her blood when checked by authorities three hours later. The Supreme Court, in a 4-3 order, reversed a decision to hear the case.

There are never enough labs on university campuses. We’ve been very grateful to the university

Stop in to see or ask questions about our Compounding Center

for allowing us to use some of their labs ... but we’ve been working on trying to get new facilities up here for the unit for a very long time.” Corporations send termiticides to the Forest Service, where they are tested for possible impacts on human health, the environment and the insects they are designed

to combat. Researchers who conduct the termiticide testing program then provide data on those products to the Environmental Protection Agency and state regulators, who decide whether to register or reject the products. Ten employees will work in the new facility.

IRS should crack down

40 YEARS AGO: 1970

What do Americans for Prosperity and Civic Action have in common? Not political leanings, that’s for sure. AFP is hard right; MoveOn is hard left. Both are registered with the Internal Revenue Service as 501(c)4 organizations. There are 26 categories of Section 501(c) organizations, all of them exempt, at least in part, from paying income taxes. Under IRS regulations, 501(c)4 organizations “must be operated exclusively to promote social welfare.” Such organizations “must operate primarily to further the common good and general welfare of the people of the community (such as by bringing about social improvements),” the regulations say. That “promote social welfare” language leaves a lot of wiggle room, and, increasingly, groups all along the political spectrum — though particularly those on the right — have formed 501(c)4s for blatantly partisan purposes. Donations to 501(c)4s aren’t tax deductible, but the names of donors don’t have to be disclosed, and there’s no limit on how much donors can give. Thus, a few wealthy individuals, corporations or labor unions can have a huge influence on political campaigns and issues without

being accountable to the public. Recently, Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, asked the IRS to investigate whether 501(c)4s are violating the rules for tax-exempt organizations. Because Baucus’ committee has oversight of the IRS, his “request” carries considerable weight. “With hundreds of millions of dollars being spent in election contests by tax-exempt entities, it is time to take a fresh look at current practices,” Baucus wrote to IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman. The senator noted that law forbids political activity from being the “primary purpose” of such tax-exempt organizations. “These rules prevent private individuals or groups from using tax-exempt organizations to benefit their private interests or to profit from the tax-exempt organization’s activities,” Baucus wrote. Oil and energy lobbyists and trade groups for example, have formed dozens of 501(c)4s to oppose the Obama administration’s cap-and-trade bill, which would raise their costs.

into the partisan activities of 501(c)4s run by environmental groups. He argued that donors who wanted their money to support environmental causes had no way to know whether their money was going instead to partisan political causes. But that was in 2008, before a Democrat was elected to the White House. Conservatives like Inhofe no longer are as concerned with 501(c)4s. After the 2002 McCain-Feingold campaign finance law limited direct contributions (hard money) to political parties, political activists developed the concept of “soft money.” Democrats led the way, using so-called “527 corporations” (after a provision in the tax code) to raise money for independent political expenditures. Republicans quickly caught up. But for those who prefer operating in the shadows, 527s had a problem: Donors’ names must be disclosed. It has been said that money in politics is like water — it always finds a crack to trickle through. But using tax-exempt organizations to hide the identities of donors too cowardly to acknowledge their beliefs must end. We trust Baucus will hold the IRS to enforcing not only the letter of the law, but also its spirit.

Hosemann educating voters on write-in candidates Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann is on a crusade to ensure the write-in balloting for two judicial posts works as smoothly as possible in the Nov. 2 general election. Hosemann and his staff have been fanning out across south Mississippi this month to hold public meetings and explain the process. The write-in ballots were made necessary when District 13 Circuit Judge Robert Evans, who was running unopposed, died in July; and District 10 Chancery Judge James Thomas Jr., who also was unopposed, died Oct. 1. “This is historic. This has never happened in Mississippi since 1817 that we could find,” Hosemann told a public meeting in Hattiesburg. Circuit District 13 is comprised of Covington, Jasper, Simpson and Smith counties. Chancery District 10 includes Forrest, Lamar, Marion, Pearl River and Perry counties. The District 13 write-in ballot was upheld this past week by Special



This is historic. This has never happened in Mississippi since 1817 that we could find, Hosemann told a public meeting in Hattiesburg.

Circuit Judge Henry Lackey. The attorney general’s office said no legal challenge has been filed in the District 10 election. The state Board of Election Commissioners decided that a write-in election was required in each race. Assistant Attorney General Harold Pizzetta told Lackey during the hearing that a key point to consider was that the Nov. 2 election in District 13 isn’t a special election to serve out Evans’ term. It is the regularly scheduled election for a new

four-year term. Pizzetta said write-in options are available in all Mississippi elections. He said local poll managers and election commission members should be trained to help voters. Hosemann said the District 13 circuit court ballot is blank, but Thomas’ name remains on the District 10 chancery court ballot because it had already been printed and sent to the affected counties. In Hattiesburg, Hosemann said if Thomas receives the most votes,

the governor will appoint a judge for one year, and the position will go up for election again in 2011. If no candidate receives a majority, a runoff will be held Nov. 23. Hosemann said the Election Commission has sent letters to all qualified attorneys in the counties affected. He said his office will issue a news release when a candidate files the affidavit required to run a campaign committee raising more than $200. He said the state Election Commission plans to appoint a resolution board to determine the will of the voter in cases of misspellings and other confusion. Hosemann’s office has also disseminated information about how the write-in ballots would be handled on electronic voting machines — one of the issues raised by plaintiffs in the District 13 lawsuit. According to the secretary of state’s office, a voter will choose “Write-In” on the electronic

machine, a touch pad will prompt the voter to type the name of a candidate. On affidavit or absentee ballots, a voter will use pencil and paper for the write-in portion. Hosemann said he hopes voters will take the process seriously. “Voting for a ‘Donald Duck’ or a ‘Mickey Mouse’ is not funny; it’s a mockery of our democracy,” Hosemann said in a written statement. “Our servicemen and women fight and die for your right to cast a ballot.” Lackey expressed some reservations about the write-in election as he — with some apparent reluctance — upheld its legality. Lackey said he was concerned about “the consequences” of holding an election where the qualifications of a candidate, especially a judicial candidate, would not be verified. •

Making the switch


Chandra Levy trial begins 9 years after intern’s slaying WASHINGTON (AP) — If one person is associated with the mysterious slaying of Washington intern Chandra Levy, it isn’t the man who will soon be tried on charges he murdered her. It’s former California congressman Gary Condit, whose political career imploded after he was romantically linked to the woman and became the No. 1 suspect. Ingmar Guandique, an illegal immigrant from El Salvador, goes on trial today for Levy’s 2001 killing. However, he’s not even a blip on the national consciousness of the case, which dominated news coverage until the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks rendered

WASHINGTON (AP) — The enthusiasm gap between Democrats and Republicans in the first midterm elections of President Barack Obama’s presidency is no myth — and his party might suffer hugely in two weeks because of it. Just half of those who voted for Obama in 2008 say they will definitely show up Nov. 2 while two-thirds of those who voted for Republican presidential nominee John McCain in the last election say they’re certain to vote next month, according to an Associated Press-Knowledge Networks poll. The difference in the excitement level between the two parties is buoying Republicans, who are poised for big electoral gains, and worrying Democrats, who are seeking to hang onto majorities in Congress as well as among governors. Obama’s party hopes its superior get-outthe-vote operation, updated from his groundbreaking campaign, can overcome Republicans’ energized supporters to mitigate expected losses across the board. Nearly two years after putting Obama in the White

Nearly two years after putting President Barack Obama in the White House, the survey also found that onequarter of those who voted for the Democrat are defecting to the GOP or considering voting against the party in power in November. House, the survey also found that one-quarter of those who voted for the Democrat are defecting to the GOP or considering voting against the party in power in November. Yet in a reflection of broad dissatisfaction with politics, just as many people who backed McCain are either supporting Democrats now or still considering how to vote. To find out how the electorate’s political views have changed since the 2008 election, the AP and Knowledge Networks re-interviewed the same 1,254 people who were part of a random sample of Americans surveyed up to 11 times throughout the 2008 campaign by the two organizations and Yahoo News. While no president can be expected to fully rally his supporters when he’s not on the ballot, the survey illustrates the wide scope of Obama voters’ disappoint-

ment with the president and his policies almost halfway through his first term — and two years before he’s likely to seek their backing again. “He’s not listening to the majority of the people who elected him. It’s like he’s ignoring his base,” said SaraSue Crawford of Jacksonville, Fla., who points to Obama’s health care overhaul law. She’s deciding whether to support Republicans in the hopes of “shaking up the status quo” and restoring a balance of power in Washington. She says she might back Obama in 2012 — if he changes course by listening more. Disillusionment with Obama was evident in the survey. In a reversal from 2008, it found that Obama backers who expected change in Washington — 63 percent — now think nothing ever will happen. Just 36 percent still think Obama can do it, while

a majority of McCain supporters now say things can change if the right person is elected. “I was hoping we’d get some more civility up in government. That was implicit in his promise, along with some change. It turns out that he was driving more toward the changes rather than civility,” said Gerry D. Kramer, 70, of Georgetown, Texas. He’s among the Obama voters who are likely to vote Republican. Still, he’s not hot on the GOP either, or politics. Such pessimism among Obama’s supporters is deep elsewhere. On the dominant issue of the 2010 campaign, just 40 percent of Obama supporters who are fleeing Democrats say he’ll be able to improve the economy over the next two years. Those who are sticking with Democrats are more optimistic: 70 percent say Obama’s policies will help the nation recover from the recession. Seventy-three percent of Obama voters now approve of how he’s doing his job, 13 percent don’t approve and 13 percent have mixed feelings.

it an afterthought. While police no longer believe Condit had anything to do with Levy’s death, his presence will continue to hang over the trial. Condit’s spokesman, Bert Fields, said Condit expects to be called as a witness at Guandique’s trial, though he has not been subpoenaed.

Nidal Hasan will stand trial.

made by Col. Morgan Lamb, a Fort Hood brigade commander appointed to oversee judicial matters in Hasan’s case. It’s unusual to have so many witnesses at such a hearing, but “it’s a big case and (the

investigating officer) is trying to be thorough,” said Richard Stevens, an attorney who defends military cases but is not involved in the Hasan case. That officer, Col. James L. Pohl, said earlier this year that he wanted to hear from the more than three dozen people who were wounded in the worst attack on an American military base. The proceeding is unique to the military in that Pohl, along with prosecutors and defense attorneys, can call witnesses. Ten witnesses who testified last week were not wounded. Along with more soldiers, upcoming witnesses are expected to include the two Fort Hood police officers credited with taking the gunman down.

French oil workers balk at government’s demands PARIS (AP) — French oil workers defied the government’s demand today to get back to work and end fuel shortages, stepping up the fight against President Nicolas Sarkozy’s retirement reforms. Youths and truckers joined in, facing off against riot police and creating chaos on the roads. Strikers have blockaded a dozen French refineries and numerous oil depots in the last week as part of widespread protests over Sarkozy’s plan to raise the retirement age to

62, a reform the French Senate is voting on Wednesday. Workers are angry because they consider retiring at 60 a pillar of France’s hard-won social contract — and fear this is just the first step in eroding their often-envied quality of life. Critics say Sarkozy wants to adopt an “American-style capitalist” system and claim the government could find pension savings elsewhere, such as by raising contributions from employers. Sarkozy’s conservative government points out that 62 is

among the lowest retirement ages in Europe, the French are living much longer and the pension system is losing money already. The strike by oil workers has been the most disruptive tactic yet — and in response, the Interior Ministry opened a crisis coordination center today to focus on the conflict. Youths, meanwhile, burned tires and cars, set up blockades and clashed with riot police today outside some high schools in Paris and nearby suburbs.

the mayor declined details. “It was said that he didn’t go through the proper channels in the purchasing of tires,” for nearly $500 for a police cruiser, said Russell, the only alderman who chose not to vote on Williams’ termination. Assistant Police Chief Michael Myles, who applied

for the chief position, has been interim chief since June 1. Myles’ position will be determined by Taylor’s recommendation, Denson said. Taylor began his law enforcement career in 1994 as a patrol officer with the Rolling Fork police. He joined the Warren County Sheriff’s Office as a deputy in 2004.

“Robert came to us with experience,” Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace said. “We saw him grow in the time that he was here. He’s always been dedicated. He was one who never minded long hours and shift work. I’m very proud of Robert.” Taylor said he will tackle drug activity and burglaries

He will be confirmed at Tuesday’s city board meeting, set for 4 p.m. at City Hall, and will be sworn in before he begins his duties Nov. 4. Taylor’s salary will be between $37,000 and $40,000, Russell said. Taylor is married with children.

Another aspect of the business she enjoys is meeting people. At Saturday’s show, wheeling around in her chair, Napoli greeted everyone she saw and answered every question that was asked, even the ones about her accident.

giving shifted to smaller, local groups and because people gave less to arts and cultural groups, Palmer said. Plus, even though the recession has officially ended, unemployment remains high at nearly 10 percent nationally and the economy continues to sputter. The Salvation Army, based in Alexandria, Va., maintained its No. 2 ranking after the United Way, with $1.7 billion in contributions, despite a decline of 8.4 percent. “The only caveat is our Christmas was extraordinary,” said Maj. George Hood, the Salvation Army’s head of community relations. The group’s red kettle campaign raised a record $130 million in 2008 and surpassed that in 2009 to raise $139 million.

“The American public really dug deep during the holiday season, and in the balance of the year really cut back in what they gave to charity,” he said. The Salvation Army also is grappling with how to lure younger donors and is ramping up its digital video marketing and social networking strategies, as it has previously relied on an older demographic that lived through World War I and World War II. Last week, the Salvation Army signed its first agreement to receive donations by text message, which it will roll out this Christmas season, Hood said. Text donations have risen in popularity in the past year for groups like the Red Cross, which encouraged such donations

after the earthquake that devastated Haiti in January. Officials have also looked at creating avatars or online games to engage younger donors. “It’s so far out for a Victorian-era conservative organization like us ... kinda freaky,” Hood said. “But if we can find a way to cost effectively leverage technology, we’re game.” Only four charities in the top 10 reported increased contributions over last year, including Alexandria, Va.based Catholic Charities USA, which reported a 66 percent jump. For many, that growth has been driven by donated goods rather than cash. For instance, the Stamford, Conn.-based AmeriCares Foundation grew the fastest in 20 years to be

ranked No. 4, up from 86th in 1991. Its contributions were mostly food, medicine and other goods, not money. Feed the Children, based in Oklahoma City, and Food for the Poor, based in Coconut Creek, Fla., also grew dramatically in the past two decades. Atlanta-based Habitat for Humanity had some of the largest growth in cash donations over that time.

Charity Continued from Page A1. nate the ranking, despite the 2009 declines. The survey accounts for $68.6 billion in charitable contributions. An earlier report by the Giving USA Foundation found overall charitable giving declined 3.6 percent last year. That report included giving to private foundations and to smaller charities, while the Chronicle’s survey only includes top charities raising money from the public. “It shows that charities are really having a tough time, and this is some of the most successful charities in the United States,” Chronicle Editor Stacy Palmer said. “Usually bigger charities are more resilient, so that’s the part that is still surprising.” The top charities might have taken such a hit as

High court will hear appeal of ex-AG seeking to stop lawsuit WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court will consider an appeal by former Attorney General John Ashcroft to throw out a lawsuit seeking to hold him personally responsible for improperly arresting a Muslim U.S. citizen after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The justices today stepped into a dispute that, at its roots, concerns the Bush administration’s aggressive moves against Muslims and Arabs in the United States following the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

Abdullah al-Kidd was one of at least 70 people detained under a law aimed at insuring that witnesses would John be available to Ashcroft appear in court and testify at trial, according to a study by civil liberties groups. Like many others, al-Kidd was never called to testify before a grand jury or in open court and

was not charged with a crime. He sued Ashcroft, asserting that his arrest in 2003 stemmed from a policy announced by the then-attorney general less than two months after 9/11. At that time, Ashcroft touted the use of material witness warrants to detain suspected terrorists when the government did not have sufficient evidence to hold them on criminal charges. The suit has not gone to trial and Ashcroft, represented by the Obama administration, said he should be shielded from

lawsuits concerning his official duties. Civil liberties lawyers say no attorney general has ever been held personally liable for official actions. Other federal officials, particularly at a lower level, have been held personally liable for their actions. It is, however, exceptionally rare. Supreme Court rulings allow high-ranking officials to be held liable but set a high bar: An official must be tied directly to a violation of constitutional rights and must have clearly

understood the action crossed that line. The federal appeals court in San Francisco held that alKidd’s case met the high court’s standards. Rejecting Ashcroft’s bid for immunity, Judge Milan D. Smith Jr. strongly criticized the use of material witness warrants for national security. “We find this to be repugnant to the Constitution,” Smith said in a 2-1 decision. Smith, appointed by Bush, was joined in the majority by a Ronald Reagan

appointee. The Kansas-born Al-Kidd is a one-time University of Idaho football star who converted to Islam while in college. He was arrested at Dulles International Airport in suburban Washington, D.C., preparing to board a flight to Saudi Arabia. The FBI persuaded a judge to issue a warrant for al-Kidd’s arrest by claiming that he had paid $5,000 for a one-way ticket. Al-Kidd’s lawyers say that was untrue; al-Kidd had a much cheaper, round-trip ticket.

NATO says it’s choking Coast Guard admiral asks for resources insurgents’ supplies Arctic changes

More U.S. presence needed for increased shipping activity A B OV E N O RT H ER N ALASKA (AP) — The icechoked reaches of the northern Arctic Ocean aren’t widely perceived as an international shipping route. But global warming is bringing vast change, and Russia, for one, is making an aggressive push to establish top of the world sea lanes. This year, a Russian ship carrying up to 90,000 metric tons of gas Christopher C. Colvin condensate sailed across the Arctic and through the Bering Strait to the Far East. Last year, a Russian ship went the other way, leaving from South Korea with industrial parts. Russia plans up to eight such trips next year, using oiltype tankers with reinforced hulls to break through the ice. All of which calls for more U.S. Coast Guard facilities and equipment in the far north to secure U.S. claims and prepare for increased human activity, according to Rear Admiral Christopher C. Colvin, who is in charge of all Coast Guard operations in Alaska and surrounding waters. “We have to have presence up there to protect our claims for the future, sovereignty claims, extended continental shelf claims,” Colvin said aboard a C-130 on a lumbering flight to the Arctic Ocean. The advent of Russian shipping across the Arctic is of particular concern to Alaska and the U.S. because “there’s one way in and out of the Arctic Ocean for over half the world, and that’s the Bering Strait,” Colvin said.

The associated press

Coast Guard Petty Officers Matthew Deason, left, and Bill Lounsbery prepare a buoy for deployment into the Arctic Ocean. The 56-mile wide strait lies between northwestern Alaska and Siberia, separating the North American and Asian continents and connecting the Bering Sea to the Arctic Ocean. “The Bering Strait will end up becoming a significant marine highway in the future, and we’re seeing it with Russia, the way they are promoting this maritime transportation route above Russia right now, today.” Warming has facilitated such travel. The National Snow and Ice Data Center at the University of Colorado reported last month that Arctic sea ice coverage was recorded at a summer low of 1.84 million square miles. It said sea ice melted to the third-lowest level since satellite monitoring began in 1979. More open water is something Colvin’s veteran icebreaker captains confirm. They’re also concerned about

the state of their fleet. The Coast Guard has three icebreakers, of which only one — the Healy — is operational. The two other icebreakers, the Polar Sea and the Polar Star — “are broken right now,” Colvin said. Both are docked in Seattle, with the Polar Sea expected back in service next June. The Polar Star isn’t expected back until 2013. Help could be on the way. A bill that awaits President Obama’s signature would have the government conduct a 90-day review of the icebreaker fleet, looking at possibly renovating the current fleet and building new icebreakers. Colvin said it’s imperative the Coast Guard has icebreakers operating in the Arctic, and not only to have a presence there to protect U.S. claims. “We need to have U.S. vessels with U.S. scientists operating in the U.S. Arctic, conducting research,” he said.

Such research was the basis for last week’s flight to the Arctic Ocean, deploying two buoys to collect information from both ice floes and the open ocean. However, the buoys in the University of Washington project failed. The first was not deployed after a malfunction aboard the C-130, and the other did not transmit data after it was dropped out the back of the plane and fluttered to the open water via a parachute. Icebreakers aren’t the only need for the Coast Guard. It also needs operations in northern Alaska since the closest base is in Kodiak, about 1,000 miles to the south. “What I’d like to see someday is a hangar in Barrow,” he said of the nation’s northernmost city. It would have to be large enough to house a Coast Guard C-130 and perhaps H60 helicopters.

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — The NATO coalition said today that Afghan and international forces have choked insurgent supply routes in some parts of Afghanistan, prompting militants to extort money from citizens to keep their operations sufficiently supplied. “We are seeing instances where insurgents are receiving faulty ammunition and weapons through their supply channels,” said German Brigadier Gen. Josef Blotz, a spokesman for the NATO command in Kabul. “We have even seen instances where Taliban spokesmen attempt to blame this phenomenon on the coalition.” Insurgents, however, are adapting, according to the coalition, which has been

Typhoon Megi kills at least 3 in Philippines CAUAYAN, Philippines — The strongest cyclone in years to crash into the Philippines killed at least three people today, leaving a wasteland of fallen trees and power poles and sending thousands scampering to safety in near-zero visibility. A retired general said bracing for the onslaught was like preparing for war. Super Typhoon Megi, blowing across the northern Philippines, was forecast next to head toward China and Vietnam, where recent floods unrelated the storm have caused 30 deaths. Today, strong currents on Vietnam’s flooded main highway swept away a bus and 20 of its passengers, including a boy pulled from his mother’s grasp. In China, authorities evacuated 140,000 people from a coastal province ahead of the typhoon. Megi packed sustained winds of 140 miles per hour and gusts of 162 mph as it made landfall midday today at Palanan Bay in Isabela province, felling trees and utility poles and cutting off power, phone and Internet services.

highlighting indications of progress in the war in the run-up to President Barack Obama’s December review of the U.S. strategy in Afghanistan. NATO military officials claim the buildup of tens of thousands of international troops is taking its toll on the insurgents, yet they acknowledge fierce fighting against resilient militants, especially in the south. “One way insurgents are coping with deficiencies is by expanding illicit taxation on Afghans in villages around the country,” he said, adding that insurgents were levying illegal taxes on farmers in Kunduz province in the north. “Money extracted from farmers is reportedly being used to fund further insurgent violence.”

Rebels’ Clair out with chipped bone

OXFORD, (AP) — Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt says starting right guard Logan Clair will miss “five or six weeks” because of a chipped bone in his ankle suffered during the team’s 23-10 loss to No. 8 Alabama on Saturday. Clair, a 6-foot-5, 315-pound junior, was promoted to the starting lineup early in the season after moving from tackle to guard. Nutt said Clair’s strength was an asset, particularly in the Rebels’ running game. The Rebels’ depth at offensive line is getting thinner by the day. Clair’s possible replacements include three freshmen — A.J. Hawkins, Jared Duke and Emmanuel McCray. Ole Miss (3-3, 1-2 Southeastern Conference) travels to face No. 21 Arkansas (42, 1-2) on Saturday.

Bulldogs Ivory, Brees plunder Tampa Bay’s defense earn spot in AP poll By The Associated Press

TAMPA, Fla. — Drew Brees had another big day passing, yet the New Orleans Saints got back on track because of Chris Ivory. The Super Bowl champions rolled to a 31-6 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, with Brees throwing for 263 yards and three touchdowns and Ivory, a little-known rookie running back filling in because of injuries, providing some much-needed balance on offense with 158 yards rushing. “It feels good. I worked for it,” Ivory said Sunday after stepping up in the absence of Reggie Bush and Pierre Thomas, whose injuries have contributed to the problems the Saints have had running the ball. “You always want to take advantage of the opportunities you get, and that’s what I try to do.” Brees threw touchdown passes of 41 yards to Lance Moore, 42 yards to Robert Meachem and 4 yards to Heath Evans for New Orleans (4-2) which rebounded from a mistake-filled loss to Arizona to climb back into a tie for first place in the NFC South with Atlanta, which lost at Philadelphia. Surprising Tampa Bay (3-2) lost for the second time in three games. Although the Bucs already have matched their win total from last season with victories over Cleveland, Carolina and Cincinnati, they’ve been outscored 69-19 in setbacks to the strongest teams they faced: Pittsburgh and New Orleans. “You play heavyweights, you go out there and compete and you find out where you are,” Bucs coach Raheem Morris said. “It humbles you. It gets you in the right state of mind, gets your guys back into the laboratory ... and gets them to focus a little more.” New Orleans gained a season-high 475 yards of total offense and was only forced

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS to punt once — with 12 minutes remaining in the game. Ivory, an undrafted free agent out of Division II Tiffin College, was a big part of that. He averaged 10.5 yards per carry on 15 attempts, including a long of 33 yards, joining Ladell Betts and Julius Jones in filling in for Bush and Thomas. The Saints finished with a season-best 212 yards on the ground. “This is special,” said Ivory, who because of injury

appeared in just five games at Tiffin after transferring to the Ohio school from Washington State. “There were times where I felt like I didn’t want to do it no more, but deep down inside I knew I wanted to do it, so I kept working hard, kept my faith and stayed dedicated to it.” The strong performance came less than a week after a prosecutor in the state of Washington said Ivory has been charged with seconddegree assault stemming from an alleged July 2009 altercation in which the player is accused of hitting


another man in the head with a bottle. Ivory denies he committed the alleged crime, which could carry jail time of three to nine months if convicted. Saints coach Sean Payton called Ivory a work in progress. “He does some good things, and there’s some things he’s got to work on to get better,” Payton said. “But I thought he ran hard.” New Orleans committed four turnovers, including three interceptions, in a 30-20

When Mississippi State arrived back on campus a little after 1 a.m. Sunday morning, a throng of fans awaited to celebrate the Bulldogs’ 10-7 victory over No. 22 Florida in The Swamp. Coach Dan Mullen said the “wild scene” was a great experience and a first during his time with the Bulldogs. By Sunday afternoon, Mullen saw something else he hasn’t experienced during his two-year tenure: a national ranking next to his program’s name. On the strength of a four-game winning streak, including Saturday’s first road win over a ranked opponent since 2007, the Bulldogs (5-2, 2-2 SEC) entered the rankings at No. 24. It’s the first time they’ve been ranked since Sept. 21, 2001, when they were No. 21. “We’re going to enjoy this win, but we need to be a much better football team,” Mullen said. “There’s no secret about it. We didn’t cross the finish line with a win over Florida. But maybe this was the second jolt of energy to keep us going.” Mullen’s charge is to make sure his team keeps a level head, but he’s also quick to say the Bulldogs’ victory over Florida was no fluke. The Bulldogs won in The Swamp for the first time since 1965, breaking a 16-game losing streak. “It shouldn’t have been as close as it was,” Mullen said. “We made mistakes early and we made

Soccer FIFA member acknowledges mistake about selling vote ZURICH — FIFA executive committee member Reynald Temarii acknowledged Sunday that he made a mistake talking with undercover reporters about deals for his World Cup hosting vote, but defended his integrity. Temarii told The Associated Press he met FIFA president Sepp Blatter earlier in the day to ask him to launch an ethics investigation, after the London Sunday Times filmed him saying he wanted $2.3 million to fund a soccer academy in Auckland, New Zealand. FIFA’s independent ethics panel is scheduled to discuss his case on Wednesday, the Oceania Football Confederation president said. Blatter has promised an “in-depth investigation” into allegations that Temarii, from Tahiti, and Nigerian FIFA executive member Amos Adamu offered to sell their support for the Dec. 2 vote to decide which countries will host the World Cup in 2018 and 2022. In an open latter to his colleagues on FIFA’s 24-man executive panel, Blatter said the Sunday Times’ allegation is a “very unpleasant situation” for soccer’s governing body.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL LeGrand paralyzed from the neck down Rutgers defensive tackle Eric LeGrand was paralyzed below the neck after making a tackle during a game against Army, and he will remain hospitalized for the near future. Coach Greg Schiano said Sunday that LeGrand was resting in the intensive care unit at Hackensack University Medical Center. He had emergency surgery overnight to stabilize the spine after making the tackle during Saturday’s game at the New Meadowlands Stadium. Schiano, who had tears in his eyes during his press conference following Rutgers’ 23-20 overtime win, talked to his team about LeGrand around noon on Sunday. LeGrand was hurt with 5:10 to play in the fourth quarter against Army, making a violent tackle on Malcolm Brown on the kickoff return after Rutgers tied the game at 17. The Avenel resident who played at Colonia High School — just 15 minutes from Rutgers Stadium in Piscataway — appeared to duck his head while making the hit. The junior lay on the turf for at least 5 minutes while medical and emergency personnel treated him and players on both teams took a knee and watched. Army coach Rich Ellerson walked on the field at one point and put his hand on Schiano’s shoulder to comfort him.

It’s the first tie at the top in 51 years and the third since the poll started in 1936. 1992 — Philadelphia’s Randall Cunningham sets an NFL career rushing mark for quarterbacks, surpassing Fran Tarkenton in the Eagles’ 16-12 loss to the Washington Redskins. Cunningham gains 39 yards to move his career total to 3,683, nine better than Tarkenton’s previous mark. 2002 — New Zealand’s Michael Campbell wins the longest match (43 holes) in World Match Play history in the morning, then defeats Ian Woosnam later in the day to reach the semifinals. Campbell’s 10-foot birdie putt at the seventh sudden-death hole beats Nick Faldo, the longest match in the event’s 39-year history by three holes.

The Vicksburg Post

Phillies grab victory, momentum PHILADELPHIA — Roy Oswalt was an ace on the mound, pesky at the plate and daring on the bases. Call that a complete game — sort of. Oswalt pitched eight dominant innings, Jimmy Rollins drove in four runs and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the San Francisco Giants 6-1 Sunday night to even the NL championship series at one game apiece. “I think the biggest thing is it’s momentum,” Oswalt said. A day after Tim Lincecum outdueled Roy Halladay in a marquee matchup of aces, Oswalt beat Jonathan Sanchez. The series shifts to San Francisco for Game 3 on Tuesday afternoon. Matt Cain faces Philadelphia’s Cole Hamels, the 2008 World Series MVP. Oswalt allowed one run and three hits, striking out nine. He also singled using one of Rollins’ bats and scored a run after racing through a coach’s stop sign in the seventh. Instead of his pitching, everyone wanted to know what he was thinking on the bases. “First thing in my mind was score,” Oswalt said. “When I got halfway, I saw the stop sign. I said it’s too late now. No turning back.” Rollins kidded Oswalt about it. “It was a nice slide,” he said. “That was something I would do. Actually, I probably wouldn’t have needed to slide.” Cody Ross hit his third solo homer in two games for the Giants, who struck out 10 times. Rollins busted out of a 1-for15 postseason slump, going 2 for 3 with a bases-loaded walk and a bases-clearing double. “I knew it was just a matter of time,” Rollins said. Halladay followed up his nohitter against the Reds in the

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS division series with a subpar performance in Game 1. He gave up four runs in seven innings. But Oswalt showed why the two-time NL champions got him from Houston before the trade deadline, shutting down the Giants in a crucial spot. “You can’t get caught up in the moment of trying to get momentum back on your side,” Oswalt said. “You have to pitch your game.” Sanchez gave up three runs — two earned — and five hits in six-plus innings. The tough lefty had dominated the Phillies in his five previous starts against them, not allowing more than four hits in any outing. “It’s 1-1, you know? It’s tied. We’ve got to go out there and start winning,” Sanchez said. Oswalt chased Sanchez with a line-drive single leading off the bottom of the seventh. He advanced to second on Shane Victorino’s sacrifice off Ramon

Ramirez. After Chase Utley was intentionally walked, Placido Polanco lined a single to center. Oswalt ran through third-base coach Sam Perlozzo’s stop sign and slid safely ahead of the relay throw to give the Phillies a 3-1 lead. “That was comical,” Rollins said. “Roy’s got those stiff hips and he looked like he was cardboard running down the line but he got it done tonight.” Jeremy Affeldt came in and struck out Ryan Howard after a double steal. Jayson Werth was intentionally walked before Santiago Casilla entered to face Rollins. The former NL MVP, dropped from leadoff to sixth in the batting order since the playoffs started, hit a drive off the right-center field fence to put the Phillies up 6-1. An appreciative crowd chanted “J-Roll! J-Roll!” with a smiling Rollins standing on second. “I got a lot of faith in him,” manager Charlie Manuel said. “I know how much he wants to be up there.” Oswalt didn’t allow a hit

until Ross connected with one out in the fifth to tie it at 1. He ripped a 1-0 pitch into the leftcenter field seats — nearly the same spot both of his homers off Halladay landed. But the Phillies played smallball — a rarity for this lineup filled with inconsistent sluggers — to take a 2-1 lead in the bottom half. Victorino, one of the few Phillies with success off Sanchez, lined a double down the left-field line. He advanced to third on Utley’s fly out to right and scored on Polanco’s sacrifice fly to center, which drew a loud ovation. The Phillies took advantage of Sanchez’s wildness and third baseman Mike Fontenot’s throwing error to score an unearned run without getting a hit in the first. Rollins walked to force in a run. Acquired from Houston on July 29, Oswalt went 7-1 with a 1.74 ERA in 13 games with the Phillies.

Lee aims for his seventh playoff win NEW YORK (AP) — Cliff Lee’s left arm has been the most dominant force in baseball during the past two postseasons. Now, all that October success has earned him another matchup with the New York Yankees. “They’re basically an AllStar team. From top to bottom, they have threats everywhere,” Lee said. “I’m not going to get intimidated.” With the best-of-seven AL championship series tied at one apiece, the scene shifts to Yankee Stadium for Game 3 tonight, when a pair of pressure-proven pitchers will be

On TV 7 p.m. TBS Texas at N.Y. Yankees back in the spotlight. Lee is a spectacular 6-0 with a 1.44 ERA and three complete games in seven postseason starts the last two years. He gets the ball for the Texas Rangers against Andy Pettitte, who has an outstanding October resume of his own. The longtime Yankees lefty is going for his 20th postseason win. “Obviously, it’s a great

matchup,” New York manager Joe Girardi said Sunday, when the Yankees and Rangers worked out under blue skies in the Bronx. “Before we played Game 1, all the talk was about Game 3.” Coming off the first home playoff win in the franchise’s 50-season history, the Rangers are back on the road — where they’re unbeaten in these playoffs. Texas won all three first-round games at AL East champion Tampa Bay, including a pair of masterpieces by Lee. Next, he’ll try to join Orlando Hernandez and Orel Hershiser as the only pitchers to win

their first seven postseason decisions. Hernandez opened 8-0 for the Yankees from 19982000, while Hershiser went 7-0 with the Los Angeles Dodgers and Cleveland Indians from 1985-95. “Regardless of what’s happened in the past or what other people expect of me, I expect as much out of myself or more,” Lee said. “So I don’t look at it any different than I would any other game. I expect to be successful.” Because of his overwhelming brilliance, most of the buzz leading up to this matchup has revolved around Lee, nearly acquired by the Yankees.

Kahne gets ill over another brake failure CHARLOTTE, N.C — Hours after he was too ill to get back in his wounded race car, Kasey Kahne ran a Sunday morning 5k for his charity in a shade over 22 minutes. “That was the slowest I ever ran a 5K,” he said. “I’m definitely feeling the effects.” Yes, Kahne was physically sick Saturday night, and said he vomited once after his accident 124 laps into the race at Charlotte Motor Speedway. He was also sick of his race car, frustrated with running poorly and disgusted that his brakes had failed for the third time this season, and second time in three races. Had he not gotten sick, Kahne said Sunday he might have gotten back in the car after his Richard Petty Motorsports crew repaired some of the damage. By that time, though, he was 100 laps down. He was queasy, annoyed with the brakes and angry at criticism from an unnamed RPM employee. So he said no, he couldn’t continue, and the team grabbed J.J. Yeley to finish the race. “I was told that I needed to start doing my part, (that) is what one guy told me last night after the race,” Kahne said at the NASCAR Hall of Fame, at the finish line of the


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Kasey Kahne Foundation 5-kilometer run. “I’m not going to say names, but I was told that I need to start Kasey doing my part. Kahne I can’t control the issues I’ve had this year. I don’t know how many parts I’ve broke,” he said. “If I really thought about it, I could come up with all kinds of stuff. “You can’t control that as a driver. I’m doing my part. I just need the car. I work as hard as anybody out there.” Kahne’s disappearing act was a mere sideshow to Jamie McMurray’s victory and yet another improbable comeback for Jimmie Johnson. The four-time defending NASCAR champion spun early, dropped to 37th in the field, and rallied to finish second and widen his lead in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship standings. Johnson was up early Sunday to join fellow NASCAR driver Joey Logano in running Kahne’s charity “5Kahne.” The inaugural run drew 302 runners and raised $30,000 for his

foundation. It was a nice show of support from Johnson to his future teammate. Kahne signed to join Hendrick Motorsports in 2012 this spring, and will move to Red Bull Racing next year as a one-season holding spot before he makes his eventual move to HMS. Kahne confirmed Sunday that crew chief Kenny Francis will move to Red Bull with him, and that Francis will have the option of staying at Red Bull or moving to Hendrick in 2012. At the rate things are going, it would be surprising if Kahne doesn’t try to move to Red Bull sometime over the final five races of this year. He’s miserable at RPM, where a year after making the Chase, he’s winless, ranked 21st in the standings and has just nine top-10 finishes. The final straw seemed to be Saturday night, when Kahne said he had never been so mad in a race car. “I lost it,” he said. “I was just mad. I came into the race thinking we had a shot to win, thinking we had a good car in practice, we had a good shot. It went green. We were a little bit tight, but still actually passed cars and really felt good and then boom, my

brakes are gone. “It’s not like you have halfbrakes, like you can pump them. Your foot goes to the floor. It bottoms out. It’s a joke.” Kahne thinks the problem is the brake fluid RPM is using, adding that Francis wanted to change to a different brand but was overruled because Kahne is the only one of eight teams using the fluid having a problem. “Basically we run stuff that’s not very good compared to some of the other teams,” Kahne said. “So once you lose your brakes, you can’t get them back. With that fluid, you can’t get them back. There are other fluids that you can, but with ours you can’t. Their point is that we have eight teams and I’m the only one that’s had this issue, and that’s a good point. “But I’ve never had any issues in my past six years,” he said. “If you look at brakes after a race, my brake pads are better than any one of the other seven or the same as the best ones that don’t use much brake. So it’s just a mess, really.” The brakes went, Kahne said, about 30 laps into the race and that’s what caused his wreck.

Chas Henry’s 42-yard try sailed wide right, and the celebration began. Though Mullen has always been optimistic about the Bulldogs’ ability to compete in the SEC, he admits his young team was a little slow to join him. But now, they’re oozing confidence and only expect to improve. “With all these young guys,” said sophomore cornerback Johnthan Banks, “the future could be scary for people.” Banks grabbed an interception during Saturday’s win, leading a Bulldogs’ defense that held Florida to just 361 total yards and forced two crucial turnovers. Linebacker Chris White made 11 tackles, including 41⁄2 for a loss with

21⁄2 sacks. The Bulldogs led 10-0 at halftime, providing just enough cushion for the defense. “The second half we knew they were going to come out swinging but we had to come out swinging back,” White said. The Bulldogs’ offense wasn’t as effective. As the game progressed, Mullen’s play-calling became conservative. Even on third-andlong, the Bulldogs stayed almost exclusively grounded. They passed only nine times out of 58 plays, and those attempts weren’t particularly effective. Quarterback Chris Relf completed 4 of 9 passes for 33 yards. But there was enough success on the ground to chew up the clock and keep Florida’s offense on the sideline. Vick Ballard rushed for a team-high 98 yards while Relf added 82 yards and a touchdown.

Big Ben looms large in return It was a big return for Big Ben, who looked as though he barely missed a beat. Ben Roethlisberger, cheered loudly during his first game in 9 1/2 months, threw three touchdown passes in his return from his four-game suspension and led the Pittsburgh Steelers to a 28-10 victory over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. “One thing about him: When you look into his eyes, you always know you have a chance to win ballgames,” said Hines Ward, whose 8-yard TD catch ended a 96-yard drive that put Pittsburgh up 14-3 late in the third quarter. “And everybody just follows.” Roethlisberger’s first regular-season game since last season clearly excited Steelers fans, who filled Heinz Field beyond its capacity. It was a special game for the quarterback, too, as he realized while traveling to the stadium. The Steelers (4-1), beating Cleveland for the 13th time in 14 games, moved into first place in the AFC North as Baltimore (4-2) lost to New England 23-20 in overtime. Cleveland’s Colt McCoy (23 of 33, 281 yards, five sacks) didn’t look overwhelmed in his first NFL start, but he played with a depleted cast after hits by James Harrison sidelined wide receivers Joshua Cribbs and Mohamed Massaquoi with head injuries during the second quarter. Deion Branch had a happy return to New England, sparking a comeback from a 10-point deficit to a 23-20 overtime win over the Ravens. He capped that with two key catches that set up Stephen Gostkowski’s 35-yard field goal with 1:56 left in overtime. When Randy Moss was traded to Minnesota on Oct. 6, fans worried that the Patriots would struggle without their only deep threat. But Branch gave them plenty of reasons to forget those concerns and the team’s embarrassing 33-14 playoff loss to the Ravens in the first round last season. Branch was MVP of the 2005 Super Bowl when he caught 11 passes for 133 yards. His nine catches in this one matched Moss’ total in his four games with New England (4-1) this season. The Patriots (4-1) won their eighth straight game after a bye. The Ravens’ three-game winning streak ended.

Eagles 31, Falcons 17 Jeremy Maclin and DeSean Jackson each scored two touchdowns and Philadelphia snapped Atlanta’s four-game winning streak. Philadelphia (4-2) ensured it would stay atop the NFC East, while the Falcons fell to 4-2.

Jets 24, Broncos 20 LaDainian Tomlinson scored his second touchdown from 2 yards out with 73 seconds left after a pass interference flag helped New York rally and earn the NFL’s best record at 5-1.

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS off return for a touchdown gave Minnesota a spark to start the second half, and the Vikings overcame another uneven game by Brett Favre in a victory over Dallas. Playing with a bad elbow and the specter of a scandal hovering over him, Favre took a bunch of big hits and finished 14 for 19 for 118 yards, one TD and one turnover. The Vikings (2-3) won this matchup of preseason NFC favorites, though even in defeat the Cowboys (1-4) are not out of contention in the mediocre conference.

Giants 28, Lions 20 Eli Manning threw two touchdown passes and the New York Giants sent error-prone Detroit to an NFL record-tying 24th straight road loss. Safety Deon Grant preserved the third straight win for the Giants (4-2) by forcing and recovering a fumble by Lions receiver Nate Burleson at the Giants 42 with about five minutes to go and New York ahead by four points.

Rams 20, Chargers 17 James Hall, Chris Long and Larry Grant had two sacks apiece and the Rams stuffed the NFL’s top offense for its third straight win at home. Sam Bradford threw a 38-yard touchdown pass to fellow rookie Danario Alexander, making his NFL debut, to help build a 14-point cushion in the first half. Steven Jackson, who finished with 109 yards, also scored and had several key late carries for the Rams (3-3).

the website Deadspin accusing the married Favre of pursuing Jenn Sterger with voicemails, text messages and lewd photos. Sterger has not commented and the website acknowledges there is a possibility that the messages may not be from Favre. Favre has not commented directly on the allegations, instead steering any questions about it back to the field, where the Vikings (2-3) squeezed out a much-needed win. They head to Lambeau Field next weekend to face NFC North division rival Green Bay Packers, the team Favre spent 16 seasons starring for before leaving in 2008. “I’m a little bit reluctant to say I’m excited to go back to Green Bay,” said Favre, referencing what is expected to be a difficult game. “It’s a chal-

Continued from Page B1. from his wide receiver spot, then lined up as the quarterback in the wildcat formation on several drives and added 33 yard rushing and 20 passing. “It was very fun,” Marshall said of his quarterback cameo. “The first play we ran, I was kind of nervous because that was my first time doing it in a game situation.” Marshall also ended three consecutive Riverfield drives late in the first half with interceptions and had a 20-yard punt return in the third quarter. His overall effort not only sparked the Eagles, it reflected their entire night. PCA (5-4) led 21-6 at halftime, then essentially put the game away two minutes into the third quarter when Marshall caught a 21-yard touchdown pass from Jonah Masterson. The defense forced five turnovers, two of which led to touchdowns, and held the Raiders in check for most of the night. Cole Mills rushed for 162 yards and a score on 16 carries for Riverfield (4-5), but the bulk of his yardage came on three long runs of 42, 47 and 37 yards. Weaver

said the big plays were a combination of good execution by Riverfield and some youthful mistakes by PCA’s young defensive substitutes. “(Mills) had x-amount of yards. But the first touchdown they had, we overpursued and he cut back. We just got overly aggressive,” Weaver said. “The others were sweeps to the outside. Young kids got sucked in too far. Any time you get that, it’s three blockers on a cornerback and I’ll take the blockers every time in that matchup.” One of the few blemishes on the night for PCA was an injury to senior running back and linebacker Jake Boyd. The team’s leading rusher and tackler suffered what’s believed to be a high ankle sprain at the end of a short run in the fourth quarter. Boyd will undergo further examination this week, but Weaver has already ruled him out for Friday’s game at Central Hinds. Weaver said holding Boyd out was a precaution, and to rest him for next week’s game at District 5-A rival Newton Academy that will determine a playoff spot.

New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, center, goes up against Baltimore Ravens safety Ken Hamlin, top left, and cornerback Lardarius Webb for a Hail Mary pass from Patriots quarterback Tom Brady into the end zone at the end of the fourth quarter. The Patriots won 23-20 in overtime.

Texans 35, Chiefs 31 Matt Schaub threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Andre Johnson with 28 seconds left to give the Texans a stunning fourth-quarter comeback victory. The Texans (4-2) trailed 31-21 with just over 7 minutes left after Thomas Jones’ 11-yard TD run.

Dolphins 23, Packers 20 Dan Carpenter kicked a 44-yard field goal with 9:01 left in overtime to lift Miami. It was the second straight overtime loss for the injuryriddled Packers (3-3), who lost at Washington last week. And it was a special teams-driven victory for the Dolphins (3-2), who had a bye week to think about a loss to New England. Aaron Rodgers started for Green Bay one week after sustaining a concussion, and scored on a sneak with 13 sec-

onds left in regulation.

Seahawks 23, Bears 20 Matt Hasselbeck threw for a season-best 242 yards and a touchdown and Seattle’s defense sacked Jay Cutler six times. Cutler was in trouble much of the game, and completed just 17 of 39 for 290 yards against the Seahawks (3-2). He missed last week’s game with a concussion after being sacked nine times by the Giants the previous week.

49ers 17, Raiders 9 Alex Smith threw secondhalf touchdown passes to Michael Crabtree and Vernon Davis and the 49ers finally won their first game, beating Oakland in a sloppy, penaltyfilled game. Smith overcame a slow start against Oakland (2-4) to go 16 of 33 for 196 yards in his first turnover-free game of 2010.

Favre not worried about meeting with NFL MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Brett Favre took quite a pounding in Minnesota’s 24-21 victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. The 41-year-old quarterback will face another tough test in just a few days. Favre will meet with NFL security officials on Tuesday to discuss allegations that he sent inappropriate messages to a game day hostess while both worked for the Jets in 2008. “I don’t expect anything. ... I’m concerned about the next game,” Favre said after throwing for 118 yards and a touchdown against the Cowboys. “I’ll let that take its course.” Commissioner Roger Goodell said on Saturday that Favre will meet with a member of the league’s security team this week. At issue are allegations made in a report by



Colts 27, Redskins 24 Peyton Manning threw for 307 yards, including scoring throws of 57 yards to Pierre Garcon and 5 yards to Austin Collie in Indianapolis’ victory over Washington. Joseph Addai ran for 128 yards and a touchdown for the Colts before leaving with a shoulder injury. Indianapolis amassed 469 total yards as it improved to 4-2 to maintain a share of the lead atop the AFC South.

The Vicksburg Post

lenge that hopefully we’ll live up to, and I’ll let that other stuff take care of itself.” Despite being listed as questionable with elbow tendinitis, Favre started his 290th straight game. Everyone expected the NFL’s iron man to extend his record starts streak, even after watching him clutch his right elbow in pain against the Jets last week and miss two days of practice leading up to a needed win against the Cowboys. He received a cortisone shot early in the week to help with the pain and inflammation in his elbow, then said he felt great after resting on Wednesday and Thursday. Favre completed 14 of 19 passes against the Cowboys, including a 10-yard touchdown to Greg Camarillo in the first quarter. But he also was hit on eight of his first 10 dropbacks

and sacked three times in a first half in which the Vikings gained just 60 yards. Favre appeared to hold the ball a little too long on several occasions and the offense delivered another disjointed performance with just 188 total yards. He was crunched by Igor Olshansky early in the third quarter and got up grabbing his ribs. As usual though, the old man stayed in the game and played every snap. Favre said he just got the wind knocked out of him and coach Brad Childress said the punishment he took was nothing extraordinary. “We’re paying him enough every game,” Childress said. Favre’s teammates say that they haven’t sensed any lack of focus from their leader since the controversy first started swirling about 10 days ago.

Northwest Rankin on Friday put the Arrows into second place via a head-to-head advantage over the Cougars. Clinton, though, is just 5-3 overall, giving hope to this week’s opponent Warren Central that it is not invincible. WC (2-6, 1-3) kept its playoff hopes alive by pulling out a 14-13 victory over Murrah on Friday. The win allowed the Vikings to remain in control of their own destiny. If they beat Clinton, Vicksburg and Grenada — three teams currently ahead of them in the standings — they’ll secure the fourth and final playoff berth. Vicksburg (1-7, 1-3) is in the same boat. Although they suffered an embarrassing 70-12 loss to Madison Central on Friday, the Gators play Murrah, Warren Central and Clinton in the final three games. Running the table could put Vicksburg as high as third place, since it owns

a tiebreaker over GreenvilleWeston (4-4, 2-2). “We’ve got to win out and we can,” Vicksburg coach Alonzo Stevens said. “The teams we’re playing (next) are not the powerhouse that Madison Central is.” Greenville is currently in fifth place, tied with Grenada at 2-2 in region play but behind the Chargers after Grenada won their head-tohead meeting 27-9 on Friday. Even Murrah, which is more concerned with snapping a 10-game losing streak than making a late-season push, has a role to play in the region race. It can be a major spoiler as it plays Vicksburg, Grenada and Northwest Rankin over the last three weeks. The Mustangs nearly ruined Warren Central’s dreams, until Malcolm Grant caught a 64-yard TD pass from Beau Wallace with under three minutes remaining Friday.

Saints Continued from Page B1. loss to the Arizona Cardinals last week. Brees was much sharper this time, completing eight of his first nine attempts for 141 yards and two TDs. He threw his touchdown pass to Evans in the third quarter and had another TD pass nullified by an offensive pass interfer-

ence penalty against Jimmy Graham. “Any time you have a game like Arizona where you feel like it’s definitely a game you should win and nobody plays well, you squander opportunities, it’s frustrating and disappointing.”

Plain was 95. Plain’s daughter, Barbara, said the author died in her sleep Tuesday at her home in New Jersey. A cause of death was not disclosed. Plain, known for epic novels of family and forgiveness, never owned a computer and wrote her novels longhand on a yellow pad. And while she had written short fiction for women’s magazines in her younger days, Plain put her pen on hold and instead focused on raising her three children. She didn’t start writing novels until after she became a grandmother. Her first novel, “Evergreen,� was published in 1978. It follows the saga of a young girl who trades the desperate squalor of rural Poland for the teeming slums of New York, where she is torn between the love and ambitions of two men. It went on to spend more than 40 weeks on The New York Times best-seller list and was developed into a TV miniseries.


Teen guest’s mom sues Tyra Banks A Georgia woman is suing Tyra Banks for $3 million after she said her 15-year-old daughter appeared without her permission on an episode of Banks’ talk show about teen sex addicts. In a lawsuit filed Oct. 8 in federal court in Atlanta, Beverly McClendon claims the show contacted the teen on her cell phone after she responded to a request on the show’s website seeking “sex addicts.� The girl was then picked up from her home in Georgia in a limo and flown to New York, where she was put up in a hotel, all without her mother’s knowledge, the lawsuit says. McClendon filed a missing person report with local police when she realized her daughter was gone. The teen has never been diagnosed as a sex addict, the lawsuit says. The lawsuit also names Warner Bros. Entertainment and the executive producers of the show Tyra as defendants. Banks McClendon says her daughter suffered damages because the 2009 show “was undoubtedly watched by sexual deviants, perverts and pedophiles.� The lawsuit seeks a jury trial and asks for $1 million in compensatory damages and $2 million in punitive damages. It also asks the court to bar the episode from ever being aired again on television or online. Banks’ publicist, agent and lawyer did not return calls Sunday seeking comment. The show violated McClendon’s right to privacy by putting her daughter, who was a minor, on television without McClendon’s permission, the lawsuit claims. The lawsuit also claims negligence, saying the teen was paid for her appearance but that the show didn’t get permission from the labor commissioner to employ her and didn’t get McClendon’s permission before paying the girl to fly to New York, stay in a hotel alone and appear on the show.

Scream 2010 delivers big stars, horror galore LOS ANGELES (AP) — There were superheroes and vampires, Ghostbusters, rockers and zombies — and that was just in the audience. Even more outrageous characters graced the Greek Theater stage at Spike TV’s annual Scream Awards on Saturday night — a tribute to horror, scifi, comics and fantasy. The fanfueled awards show/TV special welcomed scores of stars and hundreds of costumed fans. On a spectacular stage that looked like a warped Metropolis flanked by two gargoylerimmed platforms, Halle Berry, Megan Fox, Don Cheadle, Kelly Osbourne, Mickey Rourke and dozens of other famous faces from some of TV and film’s most popular properties treated the crowd to hours of pop-culture indulgence. Sigourney Weaver emerged from a giant brain-shaped pod to accept “Heroine� honors from James Cameron. Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd got a standing ovation as they reunited with a DeLorean car to celebrate the 25th anniversary of “Back to the Future.� Jimmy Kimmel honored the cast of “Lost� with a special farewell in front of a flaming piece of fuselage. “This whole thing was a lot more fun than the Emmys,� cast member Henry Ian Cusick said after the tribute. The cast of HBO’s “True Blood� — including Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Alexander Skarsgard, Sam Trammell and creator Alan Ball — appeared together to claim several awards. Kristen Stewart, Nikki Reed and Jackson Rathbone of “Twilight� joined to accept the prize for best fantasy film, and Bill Murray appeared in full “Ghostbusters� gear to claim an award for “Zombieland.�

Bill Murray accepts the best horror movie award for “Zombieland.� Not to overlook the writers, Aaron Eckhart presented Ray Bradbury with the ComicCon Icon award for his dedication to the annual pop-culture festival.

“He’s attended every single Comic-Con since its inception, which makes him the ultimate fanboy,� Eckhart said. “At 90 years old, Ray Bradbury continues to prove that the human imagination knows no bounds.� Fans voted online for awards in 30 categories, including best villain and most memorable mutilation. Not all 30 prizes were presented during Satur-

day’s show. Rapper M.I.A., who arrived in a burqa, added a musical touch to the program. Perhaps hinting at next year’s winners were exclusive previews of a new crop of horror and fantasy films. Wes Craven, Neve Campbell, Emma Roberts and David Arquette presented footage from “Scream 4.� The stars of “Paranormal Activity� and “The Walking Dead� also presented never-beforeseen clips. Sir Anthony Hopkins introduced a look at “The Rite.� There was also a peek at the latest “Harry Potter� film.

‘Jackass’ gang pulls biggest stunt with $50M debut at box office LOS ANGELES (AP) — Johnny Knoxville and his “Jackass� gang are even bigger hits in three dimensions. “Jackass 3D,� their latest big-screen collection of crazy stunts and antics, opened with a whopping $50 million, soaring past the debuts of their first two movies, according to studio estimates Sunday. It was the third-straight No. 1 opening for Paramount’s franchise, which launched with a $22.8 million opening for 2002’s “Jackass: The Movie� and continued with a $29 million debut for 2006’s “Jackass Number Two.� This was the first 3-D outing for Knoxville and his pals, and it was a natural for “what they do. They don’t use it as a gimmick. It’s seamless in their stunts,� said Don Harris, Paramount executive vice president for distribution. “When some guy gets hit in the crotch with a baseball in 2-D, it’s one thing, but when he’s kind of up in your face and it happens, it’s another experience.� “Jackass 3D� set a record for biggest October debut, topping the $48.1 million opening weekend for “Scary Movie 3� in 2003. “Scary Movie 3� sold more tickets than “Jackass 3D,� though, factoring in ticketprice inflation and the premium charge for 3-D screenings, which cost a few dollars more than 2-D movies.

Top 10 1. “Jackass 3D,� $50 million. 2. “Red,� $22.5 million. 3. “The Social Network,� $11 million. 4. “Secretariat,� $9.5 million. 5. “Life as We Know It,� $9.2 million. 6. “Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole,� $4.2 million. 7. “The Town,� $4 million. 8. “My Soul to Take,� $3.2 million. 9. “Easy A,� $2.7 million. 10. “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps,� $2.4 million.

said Richie Fay, head of distribution for Summit. “What was amazing about this cast was the chemistry and the obvious fun they had making the movie. Older guys and women are really capable of doing things more than sitting in rocking chairs and pushing the remote control.� Despite the huge opening for “Jackass 3D,� Hollywood was unable to pull out of a boxoffice slide that has persisted this fall. Overall revenues totaled $133 million, down 4 percent from the same weekend last year.

Husband’s dinner time is bedtime for his sleepy wife Dear Abby: My hardworking husband of four years, “Brian,” loves to eat out three or four nights a week. It’s nice not to have to cook, and I have become spoiled. He loves treating. We take along friends, family members or business associates. The problem is, Brian wants to sit for two or three hours, have drinks and talk before he eats. He insists that I wait until he is ready to eat. Sometimes it becomes as late as 10 p.m. I have a sensitive stomach and I need to eat early. I have eaten dinner early my entire life. If I eat late, my stomach goes into knots, and by the time we get home it’s time for bed because I’m sleepy. Brian can sleep on a full stomach with no problem. I get acid



reflux. Brian expects our guests to adhere to his routine. Even when we have cookouts, everyone must wait for the entree. He says, “Well, they’ll just have to wait. I don’t want anyone to eat and run.” I put out appetizers, but it’s not enough to hold them. If we don’t wait, he gets angry and threatens not to have another cookout. I have explained that not everyone can eat so late. Abby, what’s your perspective on this? Who’s right here?

BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: Two days ago, my boyfriend and I had a huge argument and we haven’t talked to each other since. It all started over something insignificant and wound up with both of us yelling at each other. Deep down in my heart, I know my boyfriend was wrong by blowing what I said out of proportion. I said I thought his sister didn’t want us to be together. It ended when he said my mother is a nosey busybody who should mind her own business. I know my boyfriend very well. He thinks I’m wrong and he won’t talk to me until I apologize. Should I call him and say I’m sorry and make him feel like it was my fault? Or should I sit and wait until I hear from him? Eventually he’ll call. — Sarah, Las Vegas. Sarah: I’m sure many readers will disagree with me, but I think it’s more important to have a good relationship with your boyfriend than to sit and wait for him to mend his bruised ego. Call him and apologize for saying his sister didn’t want you two together. That should “break the ice.” He should, if he is a gentleman, follow up by apologizing to you for his “hurtful” words about your mom. But if he doesn’t, at least you two are a couple again. But since you know your boyfriend “very well,” it’s obvious that arguments occur frequently. This must end. If a heart-to-heart conversation with you doesn’t change his attitude, dump him! Dr. Wallace: I’m 16 and my brother is 17, and we both date regularly. I have an 11:30 curfew, except for special occasions, while my brother’s curfew is midnight. When I ask my parents why the 30-minute difference, all they say is, “because we said so.” If they’d say, “your brother is a year older so he can stay out later,” I’d accept that. But I can’t accept “because we said so.” I think they’re making me come home earlier because I’m a female. When it comes to chores, we both have equal work. When it comes to allowance, we both get $10 a week. So, why isn’t it equal when it comes to curfew? Nameless: I don’t want to second-guess your parents about their early curfew for you, but I believe their reason is that you are younger. However, I think they should tell you the reason. An answer of “because I said so” in response to their child’s question simply doesn’t cut it. It only leads to anger, resentment and misperception. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service. E-mail him at rwallace@Copley News Service.

— Hungry in Arizona Dear Hungry: You are. It appears you married a hardworking, self-centered drinker with a need to control everyone around him. A generous host takes the needs and wishes of his guests into consideration. A selfish one behaves like your husband does. Frankly, I’m surprised that anyone who didn’t have to would accept more than two dinner or cookout invitations. You should eat something before going to dinner with him and do the same at home whenever you need to. If you don’t, it could have a serious, negative impact on your health. Dear Abby: Two years ago I made a horrible mistake. I broke the law and was convicted of three misdemean-

ors. I live in a small town, so the news became very public. I lost my job, many friends and my reputation. I am still working to rebuild my life and find some sense of normalcy for myself and my family. I have been in therapy since the event and have learned a lot from this experience. My problem is, my brother will not forgive me. He holds it over my head and refuses to support me in my efforts. He said I deserve whatever I get. I love my brother and am close to my other siblings. I don’t want our relationship to be estranged, but I can’t take his judgmental attitude anymore. What can I do? — Southern California Sib Dear Sib: Because you are in therapy, discuss this with

Co-worker claims to have sleep apnea Dear Dr. Gott: A person I work with says he has partial sleep apnea. He has never fainted in front of anyone; he just says he needs to sit down and sleep for 15 minutes to an hour. Can this be true? Other people have to pick up his slack. Dear Reader: I have never heard of partial sleep apnea, but that does not mean that it isn’t a legitimate diagnosis. However, I have some doubts about your co-worker’s story. Sleep apnea is a condition in which the sufferer experiences episodes of not breathing while sleeping. This can occur up to several hundreds of times a night and last for a minute or more each time. As a result, the individual may not wake rested and may experience extreme daytime sleepiness, which can lead to falling asleep at inappropriate times. Other symptoms include nightmares, waking gasping for breath, heart problems and more. Sleep apnea does not cause fainting, however. A related condition, known as narcolepsy, can cause episodes of inappropriate sleep that can occur anywhere, anytime and might resemble fainting because of a loss of muscle control. This complex condition causes severe daytime sleepiness, hallucinations, sudden loss of muscle tone (also known as cataplexy) and sleep paralysis. Sufferers may also have sleep apnea, restless-legs syndrome and even insomnia. Unless your co-worker is willing to share his medical records, there is no way you will be able to determine whether he is being truthful about his condition or whether he is simply trying to get out of working. If he is indeed being truthful, he likely had to provide his superior with a medical note from a physician, because the condition would necessitate special work considerations. Bring your concerns to your boss. Be sure that he or she is aware of the situation. If the boss doesn’t know, it will then be up to him or her to confront the employee and determine whether the situation is valid. Dear Dr. Gott: I have an unusual problem. When I got my last haircut two months ago, the stylist accidentally got dozens and dozens of fine hairs in my eyes. I have dry, sensitive eyes, and this certainly didn’t help. I have been to the emergency room and to my eye specialist, but neither can find anything wrong. I am in sheer agony every day and don’t know what else to do. I even bought an eye-rinse kit that didn’t provide any relief at all. I get about a dozen hairs from each eye every day, and some are still left. Can you please help me? Dear Reader: I am not sure how I can help if after examination, there doesn’t seem to be a problem. I am baffled as



to how the physicians could not find a problem when you can clearly see the hairs. Because you do not say what type of eye specialist you saw, I suggest that you visit an ophthalmologist, who can use specialized equipment to view your eyes. If you have already done this, perhaps a second opinion from another is in order. In the meantime, avoid rubbing your eyes and use over-the-counter moisturizing eyedrops or artificial tears.

your therapist. I assume that having been convicted, you have paid — or are repaying — your debt to society. You are working to rebuild your life; you are doing all you can right now to get back on track. You are close with your other siblings, so work with that. Do not measure your worth through your brother’s eyes.

He may not be capable of forgiveness. And if that’s the case, it’s a reflection of who he is — not who you are.
