Uncle held on charges related to ’09 Cary killings By Pamela Hitchins phitchins@vicksburgpost.com

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

The uncle of a Cary woman found stabbed to death in her home 13 months ago was arrested in Vicksburg Tuesday on charges related to her death. Tony Stamps, age and address unavailable, was charged with obstruction of justice and tampering with

Karitha Carroll

Jamaya Carroll

evidence in the Sept. 23, 2009, double homicide of Karitha

Carroll, 31, and her 3-year-old daughter, Jamaya Carroll. Authorities said Stamps discovered their bodies at Karitha Carroll’s home on U.S. 61, when he went to find out why his niece hadn’t reported for work or responded to calls and text messages from family and co-workers. Karitha Carroll was found on a bedroom floor with

multiple stab wounds to her chest, and Jamaya was found in the bed with multiple slash wounds to her neck. Sharkey County Sheriff Lindsey Adams said today he could not discuss the charges against Stamps because the investigation was ongoing. He would not rule out the possibility of additional charges being filed against Stamps, who turned himself

in to Sharkey County investigators after they contacted him by phone and arranged to pick him up in Vicksburg. Stamps was being held in Rankin County, Adams said, but was expected to be returned to Sharkey County today for an initial hearing, at which time a judge would set a bond amount.

‘Don’t ask, don’t tell’ stands, court says

‘LIKE “CHEERS” — WITH BOOKS’

By The Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO — A federal appeals court has frozen a judge’s order halting the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy, even as the Pentagon said it would work to come up with new guidelines regarding gays in the military. A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday temporarily granted the U.S. government’s request for a freeze on the judge’s order. The appellate court had instructed lawyers for the gay rights group that brought the lawsuit successfully challenging the policy to file arguments in response by Monday. The judges would then decide whether to extend the temporary stay while it considers the government’s appeal of U.S. District Judge Virginia Phillips’ ruling that the policy was unconstitutional. The 1993 “don’t ask, don’t tell” rule says gays may serve but only if they keep secret their sexual orientation. President Barack Obama said last week that the Clinton-era law “will end on my watch” but added that “It has to be done in a way that is orderly, because we are involved in a war right now.” He said he supports repeal of the policy, but only after careful review and an act of Congress. A new CBS News Poll says a majority of respondents supports allowing gays and lesbians to serve openly in the military. The survey conducted Oct. 6-8, found 56 percent of those questioned were in favor of open service, compared with 31 percent in opposition. CBS said that result was similar to a February poll on the same topic which found 58 percent favored and 28 percent opposed. It was unclear what

New group to target economy, education in the Delta By Shelia Byrd The Associated Press JACKSON — Dickie Stevens, president of a catfish processing company in the Delta, knows there are already several groups

attempting to bolster the poverty-stricken region, but he believes there’s room for one more. Stevens is a member of the executive board of the Mississippi Delta Strategic Compact, which was given

its formal charge this week. The compact was created on the recommendation of a legislative task force that spent more than two years studying ways to improve the region. The 18-county Delta, which

JACKSON (AP) — The mayor of Mississippi’s largest city wants a strip club to remove billboards around Jackson. The billboards for Danny’s Downtown show a woman in a bikini holding a stripper pole and the caption: “Strippers love to climb our pole.” Mayor Harvey Johnson wrote a letter earlier this week asking a company to remove the signs because of “public outcry” over their “explicit nature.” City spokesman Christopher Mims said today the letter was sent to the wrong company. Mims said a letter is being sent to the proper parties. Mims also said city officials discussed the situation with Danny’s attorneys Wednesday, though no agreement was reached. No one answered the phone at Danny’s today.

Vicksburg man held on stolen check charge A Vicksburg man was in the Issaquena County Jail this morning, charged with uttering a forgery, said Vicksburg police Lt. Bobby Stewart. DeWayne Jackson, 52, 1802 South St., was arrested on a warrant at his home just after 6 p.m. Wednesday, Stewart said. He is accused of passing a stolen check for $750 at the Trustmark Bank on Halls Ferry Road. Jackson was being held on

Government lawyers argue that striking down the policy and ordering the Pentagon to immediately allow openly gay service members could harm troop morale and unit cohesion.

Drilling safety rules improperly issued, judge rules NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A federal judge has ruled that the Interior Department improperly issued new safety rules after it imposed a moratorium on deep water drilling in the aftermath of the Gulf oil spill. In his ruling Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Martin Feldman says the rules imposed in a June 8 notice to offshore operators can’t be enforced because the government issued them without soliciting public comment. “Notice and comment were required by law,� Feldman wrote. “The government did not comply, and the (June 8 notice) is of no lawful force or effect.� Last month, the Interior Department announced it was replacing the June 8 safety rules with new guidelines. Feldman struck down the Interior Department’s first moratorium on deep water drilling in June, saying the

Boehner to rally for Nunnelee in northern Miss. By Emily Wagster Pettus The Associated Press JACKSON — U.S. House Republican leader John Boehner will campaign for congressional candidate Alan Nunnelee in northern Mississippi today, signaling the GOP’s intense effort to win back a seat it lost in 2008. Boehner and U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker of Mississippi will join Nunnelee at 11:30 a.m. at a Republican campaign office in Southaven. Nunnelee, of Tupelo, is challenging Democrat Travis Childers of Booneville, who has held Mississippi’s 1st District seat since a May 2008 special election. Childers won a full, two-year term that November. Republicans have targeted Childers as a potentially vulnerable Democrat this year, and both major national parties are pouring money into the district.

Former President Bill Clinton campaigned at the University of Mississippi last week for Childers. In campaign appearances Rep. John and TV ads, Boehner Nunnelee says it’s a mistake for Childers to be aligned with Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California. “Join me in taking back our country. This is not a campaign of a man for an office. This is a crusade to save America,� Nunnelee said during a debate at Ole Miss last week. Childers is a fiscally conservative Blue Dog Democrat who often votes against his own party’s leadership on issues such as the massive health care overhaul that became law earlier this year. Childers is not saying who

he’ll support fo r H o u s e speaker, only that he’d like somebody “more conservative� than Pelosi. He said in an interAlan view last week Nunnelee that Boehner “stirs up divisiveness� in Washington. “To work across the aisle, you have to have somebody who’s willing. I can’t shake hands with you if you don’t offer your hand. Neither side is offering that right now,� Childers said. Boehner, of Ohio, is campaigning for several Republican candidates across the nation leading into the Nov. 2 election. In a news release Wednesday from the Nunnelee campaign, Boehner said Republicans “have the chance to stop the jobs-killing agenda being rammed through Congress� by Pelosi, Senate

Majority Leader Harry Reid and President Barack Obama. “But we need to elect conservative Republicans like Alan Nunnelee if we want to make it happen,� Boehner said. Mississippi’s 1st District encompasses all of 22 counties and parts of two others on the northern end of the state. It stretches from the Memphis, Tenn., suburbs of DeSoto County — where Boehner will appear — down to Columbus, near the Alabama state line. It’s an area where many Democrats still hold local and county offices, but Republican John McCain carried the district in the 2008 presidential race. Wicker won the 1st District seat in November 1994. Before that, the area was represented for 53 years by Democrat Jamie Whitten, who chaired the powerful Appropriations Committee in the final years of his career.

Mississippi man dies after hit-and-run following football game in Alabama TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — A Mississippi man has died of injuries he sustained in a hit-and-run accident in Tuscaloosa.

Loyd Baker said that Smith was struck by a Nissan Altima Saturday morning while crossing a street. Investigators found a broken car mirror at the scene and traced it back to an Altima driven by 23-yearold Michael Kahlolokula, a student at the University of Alabama. He’s charged with leaving the scene of an accident with injuries.

A spokeswoman for the Interior Department declined to comment on Feldman’s ruling. A lawyer for Ensco didn’t immediately return a call for comment. The Shallow Water Energy Security Coalition, which advocates for companies that drill and service platforms in shallow waters, said the ruling highlighted the Obama administration’s haphazard approach to regulating drilling. “This ruling reaffirms that the federal government cannot rule by reactionary fiat and edict,� coalition executive director Jim Noe said. “Instead, the Obama administration should adopt a measured response that is informed by sound science and industry best practices.�

NEW YORK (AP) — Chevron Corp. might be one of the first companies to ask permission to drill new wells in the Gulf of Mexico since the moratorium was lifted. The San Ramon, Calif., oil giant said today it plans to file an application for drilling permits in the next several days for various deepwater projects in the Gulf. The government said it hasn’t received any new applications for drilling permits since the Interior Department lifted the ban earlier this month. A Chevron spokesman didn’t specify which projects would be included. But the company said in a separate announcement that it will devote $7.5 billion toward two new fields in about 7,000 feet of water off the Louisiana coast.

Time to roll up your sleeves It’s time for our annual flu vaccination, but if this year is like most others, too many minorities and young people will not be immunized. Doctors in urban areas say that there are many reasons for the immunization disparity. Some minorities are leery of doctors and too many young people believe they won’t catch the flu. Both of these ideas are wrong. Unless you’re living in a plastic bubble, you can get sick. More than 36,000 people die each year in the United States from influenza. And for those who worry about the shot, the rewards surely outweigh the risks. Last year, during the height of the H1N1 scare, health organizations and doctors working in urban areas joined forces to get people immunized. The collaboration worked. We encourage

them to join forces again. We can’t stress enough how important it is for children, the elderly and those with compromised immune systems to get vaccinated. The health department says people in these groups are at a higher risk than the rest of the population. According to a report from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance system, blacks and Hispanics are less likely than whites to get vaccinated because they have concerns about the safety of the vaccination or they have tried to get the vaccination but could not. Another report showed that more young people are skipping the vaccination because they simply think they are too healthy to get sick. Ironically, these tend to be young people who don’t have medical insurance so when they

20 YEARS AGO: 1990

do get sick, they tend to end up in the emergency room or they refuse to seek any medical treatment at all because they can’t afford it. Health professionals are not predicting a worldwide flu pandemic this year. While the H1N1 “swine flu” is still around, doctors say it lacks the punch it had last year. While last year’s flu season hit pregnant women and children the hardest, this season is expected to be tougher for seniors. Drug makers have created a stronger vaccine for them, but it won’t work unless people get vaccinated. No shortages of vaccine are expected, so it will be easier than ever to get vaccinated. For your own health and that of people around you, please, roll up your sleeves and get vaccinated.

MODERATELY CONFUSED by Bill Stahler

Obama boosts nation’s infrastructure, but too late One of the smartest policy thinkers I know, the Brookings Institution’s Bill Galston, praises President Barack Obama’s proposal to develop a National Infrastructure Bank as “win, win, win,” but he fears the president is advancing it too late. So do I. Sadly, the politics of winningthrough-infrastructure is turning terrible, with public investment of all kinds increasingly dismissed as mere “spending” or “pork.” The NIB is a piece of Obama’s plan — unveiled on Labor Day and bolstered with a White House conference this week — to build or repair 150,000 miles of roads, 4,000 miles of rail tracks and 150 miles of airport runways over a six-year period. First-year costs would be $50 billion — doubling federal transportation funding — with declining (but unspecified) outlays over the following five years. Details will be in next year’s budget. It’s not clear how much money the NIB would get as seed capital, but the idea is that the independent entity would choose projects of major significance on a nonpolitical basis, then leverage public money to attract private investment. Galston, a top domestic policy

adviser in Bill Clinton’s White House, says win No. 1 is that the bank “would mobilize large amounts of private capital that is currently sitting on the sidelines.” It’s estimated that as much as $3 trillion is being held in cash or Treasury bills by banks, corporations and institutional investors, and is not being put to work. Republicans and Democrats fight over why — “uncertainty” about taxes and regulation versus lack of demand for goods — but properly structured user-fee infrastructure programs clearly could give investors better returns than 0.25 percent for T-bills. Win No. 2, Galston says, is that a large-scale infrastructure program would “create good jobs that can’t possibly be outsourced,” especially in the construction industry, where the unemployment rate is 15

percent. The White House calculates $1 billion in infrastructure spending would create 10,000 jobs. The Federal Highway Administration says $1 billion in federal outlays, plus a 20 percent state match, creates nearly 35,000 jobs. Win No. 3, Galston says, is that “this is a way to deal with an infrastructure problem that is truly massive — trillions of dollars in deferred maintenance, which we are paying for in lost efficiency and, sometimes, reduced safety. This is work that needs to be done.” As one example of America’s falling behind, a White House economic analysis this week noted that China has already built a rail line that covers 600 miles in three hours — the time it takes Amtrak’s “high-speed” Acela to cover 200 miles from Washington, D.C., to

New York. According to a Texas study, Americans in 439 urban areas spent some 4.2 billion hours sitting in congested traffic in 2007, the equivalent of a full workweek for the average commuter — and wasted about $87 billion in fuel. According to the Mineta-Skinner report, the U.S. spends just 0.6 percent of gross domestic product on transportation infrastructure versus 1.85 percent spent by Western Europe. Actually, as Galston notes, there’s a win No. 4 to be had in creating an NIB: Governments — federal, state and local — can’t afford huge building programs. Private capital, which now represents a small fraction of infrastructure investment, needs to be deployed, and the bank is the way to do it. But for all these potential wins, Galston thinks — and so do I — that Obama is a year or 18 months too late, possibly diverted by his eagerness to pass health care reform. It now smacks of more “stimulus spending,” even though transportation projects accounted for only 7 percent of Obama’s $787 billion stimulus package. All infrastructure, including broadband deployment and smarter electric grids, accounted

for less than a third. The infrastructure bank — if it’s truly independent and replaces current Congressional formulas and earmarks for transportation projects — has support from Republican-leaning groups such as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the National Association of Manufacturers. But even some pro-infrastructure Republicans, such as former Congressional Budget Office Director Douglas Holtz-Eakin, say federal programs need to be reformed and the budget deficit dealt with before there are major new outlays. Congressional Republicans, in their “Pledge to America,” contend that jobs can be created by keeping taxes low, cutting spending and eliminating regulation. There is no mention of public investment. And then we have the tea party, which thinks “public” means “socialist.” Obama could have — should have — based his economic recovery strategy on making U.S. infrastructure world class. Alas, he didn’t. •

Brake, fuel pump problems lead to latest Toyota recall TOKYO (AP) — Toyota is recalling 1.53 million Lexus, Avalon and other models, mostly in the U.S. and Japan, for brake fluid and fuel pump problems, the latest in a string of quality problems for the world’s No. 1 automaker. Toyota Motor Corp. said today it will call back for repairs about 740,000 cars in the U.S. and 599,000 in Japan. The remainder are in Europe and other markets around

the world. Over the past year, Toyota has recalled more than 10 million cars and trucks worldwide for a variety of problems, from faulty gas pedals and floor mats that can trap accelerators, to braking problems in its Prius hybrid. In August, Toyota called back 1.33 million Corolla sedans and Matrix hatchbacks in the U.S. and Canada because their engines may stall.

The majority of vehicles this time around need to be fixed for a problem with the brake master cylinder, which could lead to weaker braking power, said spokesman Paul Nolasco in Tokyo. Some models in Japan and elsewhere — but not in North America — have an electrical problem with the fuel pump, which could lead the engine to stall, Nolasco said. No accidents have been

reported from the two defects, he said. Ryuichi Saito, auto analyst with Mizuho Investors Securities in Tokyo, said Toyota may have learned a lesson from earlier this year when it faced harsh criticism, particularly in the U.S., for dragging its feet on safety problems and recalls. American regulators hit Toyota with a $16.4 million fine for failing to promptly

Fort Hood rampage

Prosecutors near end in Hasan hearing FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — Lt. Col. James Pohl briefly examined the contents of a stack of folders, quietly read the name and rank of each person on the paperwork and assigned a number. Thirteen red folders, one for each person killed in last year’s shooting rampage at Fort Hood. The folders, each containing an autopsy report, are now in evidence at a military hearing for Maj. Nidal Hasan, who is charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder. Pohl will consider those files, testimony from the dozens of soldiers wounded during the attack and other evidence before recommending whether the Army psychiatrist should stand trial for the worst mass shooting at an American military base. Defense lawyers haven’t said whether they plan to call witnesses, but military prosecutors have called 53 — including several soldiers testifying by live video link from Afghanistan — since the Article 32 hearing began last week. Prosecutors are expected to wrap up their case today, a day after witnesses detailed the end of the 10-minute rampage. “I heard several shots, echoes of shots,” recalled Sgt. Mark Todd, one of the first two Fort Hood police officers

Nidal Hasan, right, sits with his attorney, John Galligan, Wednesday in court. who responded. “He fired at me and I fired at him.” Todd wounded Hasan in an exchange of gunfire, leaving him lying on the grass, according to testimony. After Hasan was down, Todd kicked away his semiautomatic gun and put him in handcuffs. Todd, who was not injured, said he emptied the gunman’s pockets and found a second weapon — a revolver — and clips of ammunition. Other witnesses Wednesday answered, for the first time, several lingering questions about the shootings. Investigators testified that

Hasan had 177 unfired rounds either in his weapons or in several extra magazines, some of the clips extended versions to hold up to 30 bullets. All the slugs recovered from the dead and wounded came from a semiautomatic weapon, according to Kelly Jameson, an Army investigator. Jameson said 146 shell casings were found inside the building where witnesses have said the gunman, wearing an Army combat uniform, shouted “Allahu Akbar!” — “God is great!” in Arabic — then opened fire in a crowded waiting area.

He kept firing rapidly, pausing only to reload, and shot people as they hid under tables or curled up in chairs — even shooting soldiers after they fled outside, where investigators found another 68 shell casings. Hasan remains jailed. The military justice system does not have bail. Pohl, the investigating officer in the case, will at some point after the hearing recommend whether Hasan should go to trial, though the decision will ultimately be made by Fort Hood’s commanding general.

Report: FBI computers years late, over budget WASHINGTON (AP) — After years of costly delays, a long-awaited computerized system for managing the FBI’s caseload remains far from completion and risks coming so late that it will be obsolete on arrival, a Justice Department report warned Wednesday. The Sentinel system was designed as a user-friendly paperless way to manage cases that would be ready in December 2009 at a cost of

The Sentinel system was designed as a user-friendly paperless way to manage cases that would be ready in December 2009 at a cost of $425 million. $425 million. It replaced an earlier $170 million computer program that was scrapped after consultants deemed it outdated and riddled with problems. The program’s funding was raised to $451 million in 2008 but the Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector Gen-

eral said the project is now $100 million over budget and nowhere near finished. It warned that the longer Sentinel takes to complete, “the more likely it is that already implemented hardware and software features will become obsolete.” The report recommended

that the FBI reassess the program’s requirements — including one that it integrate millions of records from the largely paper-based system now being used — and to focus on requirements that most affect agents and analysts. FBI Associate Deputy Director Thomas J. Harrington criticized the report, saying it relied on outdated cost estimates and didn’t give the FBI enough credit for making changes to the program.

tell the government about its car defects. “Toyota’s image suffered because it was slow and so it is trying to be quick with its response,” Saito said. The automaker has been working to overhaul its quality controls and respond more aggressively to customer complaints in the fallout from its recall crisis. The models affected by the latest recall in the U.S. include

the 2005 and 2006 Avalon, 2004 through 2006 non-hybrid Highlander and Lexus RX330, and 2006 Lexus GS300, IS250, and IS350 vehicles, the company said in a release from its U.S. headquarters in Torrance, California. From January through August, Toyota sold 5.6 million vehicles globally, up 13 percent from a year earlier.

Judge increases bond in missing N.C. girl case NEWTON, N.C. (AP) — A judge deemed the stepmother of a missing 10-year-old girl a flight risk and raised her bond Wednesday after the woman’s grown daughter testfied that she’s carrying on an online relationship with a man in England who was sending her thousands of dollars. While the bond hearing unfolded, dozens of investigators searched a nearby North Carolina landfill for key evidence in the disappearance of Zahra Clare Baker, but police said they don’t expect to find the girl’s body there. Catawba County District Judge Robert Mullinax Jr. increased Elisa Baker’s bond from $40,000 to $65,000. Investigators said Baker wrote a bogus ransom note found Oct. 9, the day she and her husband reported Zahra missing. Police have said they think someone killed the girl who used hearing aids and a prosthetic leg because of bone cancer, but have not found her body and haven’t charged anyone with killing her.

Testimony from one of Baker’s adult children, Amber Fairchild, helped convince the judge that the woman is a flight risk. Fairchild said that her mother rarely worked and had been sent $10,000 over the last year by a man in England with whom she had an online relationship, despite her marriage to Zahra’s father. She said Baker told her she wanted to leave North Carolina the day before she was arrested. Elisa Baker had also met Zahra’s father, Adam Baker, online. Fairchild testified that her mother visited Adam Baker in early 2008 and when she returned from Australia later that year, they were married.

Accused Calif. city looters set for court never too hot or too cold! 2 Piece Bonded leather Sofa & loveSeat LOS ANGELES (AP) — Eight current and former officials accused of looting millions of dollars from the small California community of Bell are headed to court, a day after the state Controller’s Office accused the city of illegally diverting more than $1 million, partly to pay officials’ inflated salaries. The mayor, vice mayor, former city manager, former assistant city manager and other officials were expected to enter pleas Thursday to multiple counts of misappropriation of public funds. Prosecutors say they looted more than $5.5 million from a city where one in six people live in poverty. The scandal has provoked national outrage and calls for more transparency in government. When the eight were arrested last month prosecutors said ousted City Manager Robert Rizzo was at the center of a scam that went unchecked for years while he allegedly lent city money to himself, his assistant, City Council members, members of the police force and an array of others. The scheme endured as long

as it did, prosecutors said, because anyone who could have blown the whistle was in on it. Authorities have said Rizzo made $4.3 million by paying himself through different employment contracts that were not approved by the City

Council. Meanwhile, council members allegedly paid themselves a combined $1.25 million for what prosecutors have said were “phantom meetings” of various city boards and agencies.

ments, etc. I would be very leery to get involved with such companies, and there are side effects — damaged credit and so forth. You didn’t mention how much you owe. If you are in debt so far there is no way to get out, that’s another matter. I am very reluctant to mention bankruptcy and I don’t know what your assets are, so it’s difficult to speculate about that. I am not a fan of bankruptcy unless it’s absolutely necessary. That observed, if you would like to drop me a note giving me brief specifics about how much you owe, interest rates, etc., perhaps I can shed a little more light on a direction to head in. •

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama’s top housing official said Wednesday that lenders are within their rights to resume foreclosures despite allegations that they erred in processing documents. But he said the banks could face fines if found to have broken the law. “They’ve made a business decision,” Shaun Donovan, the secretary of housing and urban development, said in an interview at the White House. Two big lenders — Bank of America Corp. and Ally Financial Inc.’s GMAC Mortgage unit — are restarting fore-

closures after halting them temporarily. They had frozen those cases amid allegations that employees signed but didn’t read foreclosure documents that may have contained errors. The companies say they’re fixing the problems in the documents. Donovan noted that several federal agencies, including his department and the Federal Trade Commission, have authority to penalize mortgage companies if they’re found to have violated the law. “We are going to hold them accountable,” he said. The housing secretary dis-

cussed the foreclosure document mess earlier in the day with officials from 11 federal agencies that are reviewing the issue. He said the government is also in contact with 50 state attorneys general who have launched their own inquiry. Donovan said the government has found no evidence that the system used to handle foreclosures is flawed, even though some banks may not have followed proper procedures. A federal law enforcement official told the Associated Press on Tuesday that the FBI is trying to determine whether

the financial industry broke criminal laws in the mortgage foreclosure crisis. The government has authority to fine lenders that fail to comply with guidelines of the Federal Housing Administration, which guarantees some home loans. Some lawmakers have called for a national halt to foreclosures. The Obama administration opposes such a move. It says doing so could hurt the housing market by making it harder for buyers of foreclosed homes to complete their transactions.

Stocks rise after upbeat earnings NEW YORK (AP) — Another batch of strong earnings has pushed the Dow Jones industrial average close to its highest level of the year. The upbeat reports today overshadowed mixed news on jobs and signs that growth in China slowed modestly during the third quarter. The Dow rose 90 points in morning trading after index components Caterpillar Inc., Travelers Cos. and McDonald’s Corp. all beat expectations and AT&T Inc. matched forecasts. Mining and construction equipment maker Caterpillar and insurer Travelers raised their earnings outlooks for the year after the strong results. Investors have been focused on corporate outlooks because they build confidence that the sluggish economy will pick up.

Outside of the Dow, the Nasdaq composite index got a lift after online marketplace operator eBay Inc. and video subscription service provider Netflix Inc. reported upbeat quarterly results following the closing bell Wednesday. United Parcel Service Inc.’s profit rose and it raised its fullyear outlook as operating profit at its U.S. units improved. Xerox Corp. doubled its profit on surging demand for its copying equipment. Drug maker Eli Lilly & Co.’s profit jumped 38 percent, but concerns remain about expiring patents in the coming years. JetBlue Airways Corp. continued a run of positive airlines earnings, saying its profit nearly quadrupled. The Dow rose 90.21, or 0.8 percent, to 11,198.11 in morning trading. After a strong September, stocks are again

Eli Lilly profits up in 3rd quarter NEW YORK (AP) — Eli Lilly said today its third-quarter profit jumped 38 percent from last year, but its sales were little changed and concerns about patent expirations continued to loom over the company. A year ago, the company’s results were hurt by almost $550 million in one-time charges. The Indianapolis company

said it earned $1.3 billion, or $1.18 per share, in the three months that ended Sept. 30. That’s up from the $941.8 million, or 86 cents per share, in the same period last year. Excluding charges, adjusted profit in this year’s third quarter was $1.21 per share. Revenue for the past three months was up 2 percent to $5.65 billion.

proving to be resilient, able to quickly bounce back after any signs of economic uncertainty. The Dow is up 3.8 percent so far this month and is approaching its highest levels of the year.

Sales are booming for clinical strength diet pill Participants in clinical study lost an average of 5 times more weight without additional exercise or diets; 48-hour time limit now in place By K. Tedeschi

Universal Media Syndicate

(UMS) – Over 10 million doses have been shipped to dieters so far, and sales continue to climb every day for the diet supplement called Apatrim®. “We knew we had a great product, but it’s even exceeded our expectations,” said Ken Geis, Manager of Call Center Operations for PatentHEALTH the company that developed the clinically tested weight loss supplement. “People just keep placing orders, it’s been pretty amazing,” he said. But a closer look at this weight loss sensation suggests that maybe the company shouldn’t have been caught off guard by its success. There are some very good reasons for Apatrim’s surging popularity. To begin with, the clinical test results were very impressive. Participants taking Apatrim’s active ingredient as directed lost an average of 400% more weight than those taking a placebo during the 4-week U.S. clinical study. These remarkable results were achieved without additional exercise or diets.1* Apatrim comes from a natural edible plant source. It’s safe, as well as easy to use. This weight loss supplement can actually begin working the very first day. And since researchers believe Apatrim works to suppress appetite, most people can eat what they want and still lose weight.* “By suppressing their appetite, most people will consume fewer calories which can lead to weight loss,” said Dr. Joseph Dietz, Director of Health Science, Research & Development for PatentHEALTH. “Consumers should always keep in mind that there is no substitute for proper diet and exercise when it comes to losing weight.”* Impressive clinical results Apatrim’s active ingredient has a known ability to help control hunger pangs. This allows people to eat the foods they want and always seem to be craving because they’ll just want to eat less.* The U.S. clinical study was conducted in Los Angeles. The study included healthy, overweight individuals between the ages of 31 and 73. The caloric intake and level of exercise was not disclosed. The participants were instructed not to change the food they were eating and not to add any exercise. Specifically, no changes to their daily routine; just take the recommended dosage 30 minutes before lunch and dinner. While we all know that no diet pill works for everyone, a remark-

able 100% of the participants taking Apatrim as directed either lost weight or inches off of their waistline during the 4 week clinical study. Those losing weight lost an average of 5 times more than study participants who were taking the placebo pills.2* Some participants experienced fabulous results, losing as much as 8 lbs and up to 2 inches off their waistline. These amazing results were achieved without changes in lifestyle. All they did was take the pills as instructed.2* Professional support Industry trends along with professional’s support in the weight loss and fitness industries indicate that Apatrim is the real thing. This amazing pill is being recommended to companies and clients across the country. Mark Loy, a personal trainer has had some of his clients use Apatrim with great success.3 “When I’m working with my clients I can control what they’re eating,” said Loy. “But when they leave they’re on their own and that’s when the tendency to cheat comes into play,” he continued. “I heard about Apatrim so I checked out the facts then decided to try it as a part of my training program,” Loy said. “It’s really helped some of my clients to control their eating. I’ve watched people get some amazing results while taking Apatrim,” said

Loy. “Sign me up, I’m a believer.”2 Dr. Joseph Dietz was impressed with the quality of the clinical trials as well as the U.S. patent (#7,060,308). This patent protects the proprietary method of extracting the active ingredient. This process is what the developing scientists believe is the key to the active ingredient’s effectiveness. “When I read the clinical results, the U.S. patent and all of the other scientific support I immediately knew we needed to use this weight loss compound,” said Dietz. “The results are real; Apatrim is

The report found almost 18 percent of the adult population has less than a ninthgrade education. The latest figures put unemployment in Warren County at 9.2 percent; Sharkey at 10.4 and Issaquena at 7.5. “It’s tough up here in the Delta,” said Stevens, who owns Consolidated Catfish in Isola and is president of the Humphreys County Board of Supervisors. “There are an awful lot of organizations

The organization is gathering its board members, which will include two representatives from each Delta county. in the Delta and everybody has real good objectives, but everybody running in a lot of different directions.” Stevens said it’s too soon to talk about strategies. The organization is still gathering its board members, which will include two representatives from each Delta county. Rep. John Hines, D-Greenville, who was a member of the task force, said the compact’s mission will be to initi-

ate policies addressing education, health care and job creation. He said the compact will pull all the other groups in the Delta together. “There’s going to be a cohesiveness in place to deal with issues that haven’t been dealt with in the past,” Hines said. Gary Anderson, a consultant working with the compact, said the organization will model itself after the CREATE Foundation, the

oldest and largest community foundation in Mississippi, which is located in an area that will be home to a Toyota manufacturing plant. The CREATE Foundation, based in Tupelo, has a commission that has worked for years on leadership development, racial reconciliation, improved broadband access, highway development and educational attainment in a 16-county region, said Lewis Whitfield, the group’s senior vice president. “We helped build regional harmony, cooperation and unity. Within that spirit, it was easier to put together

an alliance of three counties that worked to recruit Toyota,” Whitfield said. The Toyota plant is in Blue Springs in Union County. Anderson said one goal of the compact is to identify an area of the Delta that could be marketed as a supersite to industries. The region has hundreds of acres of fertile soil that’s grown everything from cotton to soybeans to corn. It also produces a significant portion of the nation’s catfish crop. But some of those agricultural sectors have seen decline in recent years.

Slaying death, Adams said. He had returned to Mississippi for a visit and was preparing to return to Arizona when he was informed of the charges against him. Warren County officials were not involved in the arrest, Adams said. In the early stages of the investigation, Sharkey County Coroner Angela Eason said the mother and

daughter had been dead about 12 hours when Stamps found their bodies. Wounds indicated that Karitha Carroll had fought with her attacker, but it is believed she knew the person because her body was found in the bedroom and there were few signs of a struggle in the living room. Carroll had multiple stab wounds to her chest, defen-

sive wounds on her arms and slash wounds to her throat. “All of her wounds were in the front,” Eason said. “Either she was fighting or trying to stop someone from cutting her.” The toddler died of slash wounds to her throat, and was slashed on her right arm, Eason said. DNA from family members, friends and others, including

an inmate in the Washington County jail, was tested, and a U.S. Marshals fugitive, 45-year-old Robert Lee King, was a potential suspect, but no arrests have been made. Karitha Carroll was survived by a teen son and daughter. Besides her brother and sister, Jamaya was survived by her father, Archie Sanders III of Vicksburg.

‘It’s shameful’

150th Celebration The associated press

Women protest in front of Gov. David Paterson’s office in New York, asking him to sign the Anti-Shackling Bill in 2009.

Report faults prisons’ treatment of mothers serving time in jail By The Associated Press The number of women in America’s state prisons has reached a record high, yet many states have inadequate policies for dealing with the large portion of them who have children or are pregnant, according to a new 50-state survey. The report, released today by the National Women’s Law Center and the Rebecca Project for Human Rights, analyzes policies in three areas — prenatal care, shackling of pregnant women during childbirth, and community-based alternatives to incarceration enabling mothers to be with their children. Only one state, Pennsylvania, received an A. Mississippi’s corrections department said all incarcerated pregnant women in its custody receive prenatal care from qualified physicians. Anne Cybulski-Sandlian, health services program manager for Wyoming’s corrections department, said the private company running the state prison for women was required to meet national standards for its medical program, including prenatal care. A grade for Mississippi was not provided.

Mississippi’s corrections department said all incarcerated pregnant women in its custody receive prenatal care from qualified physicians. “It’s shameful that so many states fail to have laws and policies to protect this vulnerable population of unseen and largely forgotten women,” said Jill Morrison, a co-author of the report and senior counsel at the law center. As a backdrop to its findings, the report noted the number of women in prison — more than 115,000 as of 2009 — has risen at a higher rate than that of men since the introduction of mandatory sentencing policies for many drug offenses. It said most of the women are nonviolent, first-time offenders, and about two-thirds have at least one child under 18. According to the report, pregnant women entering prison often have high-risk pregnancies, yet many states lack comprehensive policies to ensure they receive essential prenatal care. The report said a majority of states do not require medical

examinations as a component of prenatal care, and do not offer pregnant women screening for HIV/AIDS. The report also said most states have failed to implement strict limits on the use of shackles or other restraints on mothers during labor and delivery. Morrison said the actual use of shackles during childbirth has likely declined in recent years, but she complained that many states lacked firm, clearcut regulations governing the practice. The report also urged continued expansion of community-based alternative sentencing programs, including drug-treatment programs, for women who have children and were convicted of nonviolent offenses. “These treatment programs permit mothers and children to heal together in communitybased facilities and consistently show successful outcomes for children’s health and stability,” the report said. Some of the states that received low grades in the survey disagreed with how they were characterized — notably in regard to F’s given for prenatal care.

John Edwards sex tape dispute returns to North Carolina court HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. — The legal battle over a purported sex tape involving two-time presidential candidate John Edwards is returning to a North Carolina courtroom. A hearing was scheduled for today John Edwards in the dispute between former Edwards aide Andrew Young and Edwards’ mistress Rielle Hunter. She is suing to reclaim the video she made and thinks the tape was taken from a box of her personal belongings. Young’s attorneys have been pressing a judge for help in getting a deposition of Edwards for the case. Judge Carl Fox said in a July hearing he would order Edwards to appear for a deposition if the former senator didn’t come in for testimony soon.

Octomom’s doc testifies to save license LOS ANGELES — Years before she became known as “Octomom,” Nadya Suleman vowed to have 10 children, according to testimony from the fertility doctor whose in vitro treatments helped produce her octuplets.

him she had been trying to become pregnant for four years and had suffered a miscarriage. “‘I’m going to have 10 kids, I just want to have a large family,”’ Kamrava recounted Suleman saying. He testified on his treatment of the mother of 14 during his Medical Board of California’s licensing hearing in downtown Los Angeles. The state licensing agency alleges that Kamrava was negligent in the treatment of Suleman and two other patients, and is seeking to revoke or suspend his license. The Beverly Hills fertility doctor helped Suleman have octuplets and six other children through in vitro fertilization. Today, Kamrava is expected to detail the in vitro treatments that resulted in her octuplets.

killed in Pakistan

PARACHINAR, Pakistan — A roadside bomb killed six Taliban militants, including a prominent local commander, in northwestern Pakistan today, an attack that could have been motivated by tensions between different insurgent groups. The bomb was detonated by remote control as Hakim Khan and five lower ranking militants were driving through the town of Marindy in the Kurram tribal region, said Jamil Khan, a local administrator. The commander who was killed was suspected of attacking Pakistani troops and kidnapping people for ransom, he said. It was unclear who carried out the attack, but rivalries between different groups of fighters in northwestern Pakistan sometimes escalate into violence.

Vicksburg High basketball star Mychal Ammons made his college choice on Wednesday. But he had to play a little joke first. He called South Alabama coach Ronnie Arrow and deadpanned that he was signing elsewhere before reversing field and telling him that he’d be joining the Jaguars. “When I told him that I was going elsewhere, he got real, real quiet,” Ammons said. “Then I told him I was just playing and that I was headed there to join him.” Arrow could finally laugh as he secured the commitment of one of Mississippi’s best players in the class of 2011.

college basketball The senior small forward picked South Alabama over South Carolina, UTEP, Florida, Missouri, Georgetown and Mississippi State and will sign with the Jaguars on Nov. 10. Ammons had a raft of reasons why he decided on the Jaguars. “The style of play, the good business program and the good people,” Ammons said. “That’s what it’s all about. It’s not about big schools, but who you feel comfortable with. I feel South Alabama is the place to take me to the next level, on and off the court.” He’ll join his older sister, Taylor, who transferred to South Alabama from Paris

(Texas) Junior College this spring. That played a role in his decision as well. Ammons said that a close relationship with South Alabama assistant coach Mike Brown also provided an assist and that the Jaguars stuck with him despite a broken foot, which cost him much of the 2008-2009 season. “When I got hurt, some of the big-time schools backed off me,” Ammons said. “I still heard from them, but they (the Jags) told me they didn’t think they could get me.” Ammons, who shared the 2010 Vicksburg Post Player of the Year award with Kelsey Howard and averaged 19 points and 9.4 rebounds per game, is glad the recruiting process is over and is See Ammons, Page B3.

Saints place Gay on injured reserve

METAIRIE, La. (AP) — The Saints have placed reserve veteran cornerback and former LSU player Randall Gay on injured reserve because of lingering effects from a concussion that occurred during a Week 2 victory at San Francisco. The move, announced by coach Sean Payton on Wednesday, means Gay will be out for the rest of the season. New Orleans also added a cornerback to the roster, signing Quincy Butler. Butler has been in the NFL off and on since 2006, when he appeared in a game with Dallas. He spent the past two seasons in St. Louis.

Superintendent Elizabeth Duran Swinford said Wednesday that the Vicksburg Warren School District will comply with a licensing company’s request to stop using the University of Florida’s logo in connection with Vicksburg High’s athletic teams, but there are no plans to change the high school’s nickname or alter other existing logos. “Our identity is not going to change. Vicksburg High School will always be the Gators,” Swinford said. “We have different gators. We use different gators. We have a stand up gator, a full body gator. We’ll use one of those.” Vicksburg High, which has used the “Gators” nickname since it opened in 1973, has long used logos bearing similarities to those used by Florida. As far back as the 1970s, VHS has featured on its football helmets the script “Gators” that Florida uses. Other high schools around Mississippi — and the country in general — follow the same pattern of copying NFL and college logos and uniform motifs. Brookhaven, for example, dresses like Ole Miss, right down to a script “Ole Brook” on its helmets. Hattiesburg, as well as several south Louisiana high schools, follow LSU’s uniform pattern with only the high school’s initials substituted for “LSU” on the

helmet. The logo that is now causing problems for Vicksburg High is called the “gator head.” It features a fierce cartoon alligator head bursting out of an oval frame. VHS features it on its football helmets, and also had it displayed on banners and signs around campus. The gator head logo is trademarked by Florida. College Licensing Company, which handles marketing and licensing for Florida and nearly 200 other colleges and universities, sent a cease and desist letter to VHS principal Derrick Reed. “Your school’s use of a mark that is nearly identical to the gator head design mark may cause consumers to erroneously believe that the University has authorized Vicksburg High School to use its marks,” reads the letter, dated Sept. 15. “Additionally, it will dilute the distinctiveness of the mark that

Vicksburg’s Gator logo, above, resembles the University of Florida’s logo a little too much for the licensing firm charged with guarding the trademark.

the public associates with the University’s ability to effectively market and license the use of the Marks in the marketplace.” The letter goes on to request that VHS stop using the gator head “in connection with its academic, athletic programs and alumni programs.” Swinford said the school has complied with the request. The logo was most prominently displayed on a

series of banners along Gator Drive, the short access road that leads to the high school on Drummond Street. Those banners have been removed. It is still displayed on several signs — one of them hand-painted — near the football fieldhouse. The football team also incorporates the gator head logo into its black uniforms with small patches on the See Logo, Page B3.

Win out or stay home, that’s the position St. Aloysius finds itself in going into Friday’s Region 4-1A game at Mound Olive. The Flashes (3-5, 1-2) seem up to the challenge. They are coming off one of their best overall games, even though it was a loss to archrival Cathedral, last week at Balzli Field. Flashes coach B.J. Smithhart said his team rebounded mentally on Tuesday. “It was tough on them Monday, but after film study, they were ready to get after it,” Smithhart said. “They want to play football and they are going to play hard.” St. Al senior linebacker/ running back Mac Jones knows what is at stake at Mount Olive, which cracked the Associated Press Class 1A poll despite a 4-4 record. “We’ve got to win out if we want to make the playoffs,” said Jones, who scored St. Al’s lone touchdown in the 13-8 loss to Cathedral. The St. Al defense came up with a safety for the team’s other score. Friday’s matchup with the Pirates has the makings of See Flashes, Page B3.

Vicksburg Logogate smacks of Florida bullying Sometimes, imitation isn’t the sincerest form of flattery. When Vicksburg High coach Alonzo Stevens got the news that the University of Florida had sent a letter ordering the team stop using the Gator head in an oval logo, he was incredulous. The letter said Vicksburg High’s use of the logo infringed upon Florida’s intellectual property and its ability to market merchandise. Vicksburg High has already disposed some of the offending logos displayed in different locations at the school. “To me, as a coach of 30-something years, it’s the most petty thing I’ve seen in my coaching career,” Stevens said. “In my experience, high schools emulate colleges. Vicksburg High and the others aren’t going

to cut into the University of Florida’s money. You’ve got two national championships in basketball, two BCS titles...c’mon!” The logo letter was as humorless and unfriendly as Urban Meyer. Lots of high schools borrow colors, logos — heck, even whole uniforms from colleges — and it’s something that’s happened for years. Kids grow up wanting to wear those

colors (and logos). Madison Central looks just like Clemson, down to the tiger paw (in Madison’s case, a jaguar paw) on the orange helmet. Wayne County’s War Eagle uniforms look just like the ones Cam Newton and the boys wear down in the Loveliest Village on the Plains, Auburn. Hattiesburg High’s uniforms, like several other schools in Louisiana, look just like the denizens of Death Valley, LSU. Yet no nastygram couched in legalese from those institutions has arrived in the mailbox. Florida, however, had a problem with Vicksburg and several other schools, including Florida’s Palm Beach Gardens and Glades Day, using the oval Gator head logo. Lawyers from their licensing firm, Atlanta-based Collegiate

Licensing Company, intervened. Florida isn’t the only one, as Florida State, Missouri and Pittsburgh have also gone after high schools to protect their trademarked logos. It’s entirely understandable that the logo, designed for UF, is the intellectual property of the school and is a brand that needs legal protection. If Florida loses its logo to the public domain, the school would forfeit any rights to make money off of it, forcing them to design another one — which the school will do in a few years anyway. But what isn’t understandable is how Vicksburg or Palm Beach Gardens or any other high school is threatening that brand with a few oncourt logos or on high school T-shirts. It smacks of bullying, especially considering

that Florida’s athletic program raked in more than $90 million dollars in 2009. In contrast, the NFL has no problem with high school and youth teams using their logos, which makes the trademark issues inherent in the use of college logos by high schools seem rather weak. “If that’s all you’ve got to do, c’mon,” Stevens said. “This is not for a profitable gain. We’re not in the moneymaking business.” So what’s next for UF’s legal brigade, The Swamp? Guess Vicksburg might need a new name for its field as well. •

NFL Brees, wife pick name for newest addition NEW ORLEANS — New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees says he and his wife Brittany have agreed on a name for their second son, and it’s Bowen Christopher Brees. The reigning Super Bowl MVP announced the name on his Twitter account Wednesday, one day after the baby was born saying, “Brit finally gave in.”

Colts suspend swimming punter McAfee for one game INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts suspended punter Pat McAfee for one game, a little more than 12 hours after the 23-year-old was arrested for public intoxication. Police said McAfee took a predawn swim in a city canal and told them “I am drunk” as he tried to explain why he was sopping wet in the Broad Ripple neighborhood, a trendy area known for its nightlife. Officers say the second-year player from West Virginia had a blood-alcohol content of 0.15 percent, nearly twice the legal limit for driving in Indiana. He was released from custody just before noon, about six hours after his arrest.

BASEBALL Harper has impressive fall league debut SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Bryce Harper put together an impressive Arizona Fall League debut, hitting a two-run double in his final at-bat that was almost a grand slam. The No. 1 overall draft pick by the Washington Nationals, Harper finished 1-for-4 for the Scottsdale Scorpions. He hit hard shots that went right to fielders twice before lifting his two-run double to left in the seventh inning.

Brett Swenson kicks the winning 28-yard field goal with 13 seconds left following an interception by Travis Key. 2007 — Rob Bironas kicks an NFL-record eight field goals, the last a 29-yarder with no time left to give Tennessee a 38-36 win over Houston. Bironas adds two extra points to set the NFL record for most points by a kicker, with 26. The Texans, trailing 32-7, survive backup quarterback Sage Rosenfels’ four touchdown passes in the fourth quarter. Rosenfels’ fourth touchdown pass, a 53-yarder to Andre’ Davis to put Houston up 36-35 with 57 seconds to play, ties an NFL record.

Uribe’s sac-fly lifts Giants to 3-1 lead By The Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO — The San Francisco Giants keep showing that building a loaded, All-Star lineup isn’t the only way to make a deep October run. The second-chance players and homegrown talent can pay big dividends this time of year, too. A club of castoffs and postseason newcomers is now just one win away from the World Series. Juan Uribe, sore left wrist and all, hit a sacrifice fly off Roy Oswalt with one out in the ninth inning Wednesday night, sending the Giants past the Philadelphia Phillies 6-5 for a 3-1 lead in the NL championship series. “We’ve got some characters on this club,” manager Bruce Bochy said. “In my mind, they’re like the Dirty Dozen, the castoffs and the misfits.” Boosted by yet another big hit from late-season pickup Cody Ross, four hits and two RBIs from rookie Buster Posey and a timely double from struggling Pablo Sandoval, the Giants pushed the two-time defending NL champion Phillies to the brink of elimination. Philadelphia will send Roy Halladay to the mound against

one out in the ninth and took third when Posey singled for his fourth hit of the game. Uribe hit a medium-deep fly, leaving left fielder Ben Francisco with no chance to get the sliding Huff with his throw. Going to Oswalt — slated to start Game 6, if it’s necessary — to begin the ninth backed up manager Charlie Manuel’s words that this was his club’s biggest game yet this year. Now, it will be today.

Yankees 7, Rangers 2

San Francisco Giants’ Aubrey Huff (17) celebrates with teammates Andres Torres, center, Pablo Sandoval, and Freddy Sanchez, back left, after scoring the winning run against the Philadelphia Phillies Wednesday. The Giants won to 6-5 to take a 3-1 lead in the NLCS.

mlb Tim Lincecum in Game 5 on tonight. It’s a rematch of aces that Lincecum won in the opener. “Two of the best arms in the game,” Posey said. “We’re in a good position. But at the same

time, we know anything can happen in baseball.” A champion with the White Sox in 2005, Uribe made his mark on this NLCS in a matter of moments — a great play with his glove, then one swing to win it. Aubrey Huff singled with

Texas has two more chances to reach the World Series for the first time. First, Colby Lewis gets a chance to win the pennant. If he can’t finish the job, Cliff Lee would face the New York Yankees in Game 7. “There’s no frustration or feeling like we didn’t accomplish what we wanted to do,” Rangers third baseman Michael Young said after Wednesday’s loss in Game 5. “We’ll just go home and try to finish it off.” Nick Swisher and Robinson Cano hit consecutive homers to build an early cushion, and CC Sabathia made the lead stand up as the Yankees closed to 3-2 in the AL championship series.

Blue Waves aim to lock up second seed From staff reports PORT GIBSON — Shoot for a two. That’s the goal for Port Gibson when they head to South Pike in a key Region 7-4A game Friday night. The Blue Waves clinched a playoff berth last week by routing Crystal Springs 54-14. It was also their sixth win to move them to 6-3 overall. Coach Lynn Lang, however, wants more, specifically a No. 2 seed that would mean a home playoff game in the first round. “We’re going for a two,” Lang said of the two-seed. “We’ve guaranteed ourselves a playoff berth but what we really want is that home game.” To get it, the Blue Waves must beat South Pike and then do the same to Lawrence County in the regular season finale in Port Gibson. South Pike’s new coach Willie Brown is familiar to the Blue Waves. He coached Port Gibson for two years before Lang replaced him. Brown won just one game in his time at Port Gibson. Lang is 10-9. “Our kids will be up for him,” Lang said of Brown’s Eagles. “He’s running the same style offense he ran here and at Hazlehurst.” Port Gibson will counter with an offense led by sophomore quarterback Silento Sayles and a stable of backs and receivers. Sayles has passed for 1,106 yards and 12 touchdowns, and rushed for another 477 yards. “I keep saying, Silento keeps showing some shades of (Steve) McNair,” Lang said of his former Alcorn State teammate and Tennessee Titans quarterback. “He shows so much poise and he’s still just

Prep Football a 10th grader.” Another young player that is making waves is freshman defensive end Darrius Moore. “Already 6-foot-4 and 250 pounds and he has 11 sacks this season,” Lang said. “He’s going to be good one.”

Puckett at Hinds AHS It’s not hard for Hinds AHS coach Michael Fields to pinpoint the reason for his team’s recent struggles. “Turnovers are killing us,” he said. “The last two ball games we’re in double figures in turnovers.” For the season, Hinds (1-7, 0-3 Region 6-2A) has committed 30 turnovers and forced only 10. It was able to overcome the mistakes early in the season, when it was at least competitive for most of its games. The last two weeks, however, the War Dawgs have been outscored 74-16. This week, Puckett (6-2, 2-1) comes to town in a game that’s crucial to its Region 6-2A championship hopes. Puckett is in third place in the region after losing to Madison-St. Joe two weeks ago, but rebounded to beat Loyd Star 48-0 last Friday. “They got a loss to St. Joe and it’s kind of like a bunch of bees jumping around,” Fields said with a laugh. “I saw the film from the Loyd Star game and I’m hoping they took it all out on them.”

South Delta at Bailey Now with a firm grip on the No. 2 seed in Region 4-3A, the South Delta Bulldogs (6-3, 2-1) head to North Jackson Field to face winless Bailey Magnet

Flashes

(0-8, 0-3). Bailey has given up 368 points in eight games while scoring just 62. South Delta is coming off its best performance of the season with a 45-0 rout of Riverside. South Delta is led by sophomore running back Hakeem Johnson who went over 1,000 yards after last week’s Riverside game. He now has 1,019 yards and seven scores. Wide receiver Brandon Smith has 26 receptions for 512 yards.

MAIS Trinity at Tallulah After watching Trinity (9-0) steamroll everything in its path this season, Tallulah coach Nick Evans joked about how his Trojans (4-5) could upset the Saints on Friday night. “Their bus breaks down on the way here?” he said with a chuckle. “I really don’t know. And I’m sure there’s seven or eight other teams that would like an answer to that.” Trinity’s resumé is wellestablished. Among its eight wins are victories over Class AA powers River Oaks and Brookhaven Academy, and Class AAA East Rankin. Tonight’s game is for the District 6-A championship, although both teams have clinched playoff berths since they’re the only two in the district. Evans said trying to con-

Another week, another playoff-bound opponent for Sharkey-Issaquena. Last week, SIA (1-8) had to face unbeaten and third-ranked Tri-County at home. They lost 45-8, but at least quarterback Caleb Joiner was able to toss another touchdown pass. This week SIA heads to Deer Creek, which is leading District 2-A. The Warriors are 4-4 overall, but lost last week to Winona Christian 41-14.

LHSAA Madison Parish at Caldwell Parish Madison Parish may have a good chance at its second win when its travels to face winless Caldwell Parish in Columbia, La. Caldwell Parish is 0-7 this season while Madison (1-6) at least has one win. The Jaguars lost 54-0 to Carroll last week.

He has played at a consistent level.” The Flashes will also get some added help this week as Smithhart has brought up some players from the Flashes’ successful junior high team. “We’ve moved up seven or eight,” he said. “It’s still an adjustment for them and they won’t play this week, but probably get in next week and the week after that.”

Ammons Continued from Page B1. focused on bringing home Vicksburg’s first state title since 2003. Last year, Vicksburg finished 25-4 and fell to Starkville 84-67 in the Class 6A playoffs. “It’s a big weight off my

shoulders,” Ammons said. “It helps clear my mind and focus on the season. We’re going to get to the Big House or die trying. We’re not going to lose like last year. I’ve got that much confidence in my team.”

Logo Continued from Page B1. hip and sleeve. A different green uniform combination has a more realistic-looking alligator on the sleeve. The baseball team also uses the gator head logo on some of its uniforms. Swinford said the gator head logo would be phased out, but there are no plans to cover it up immediately. “In five years, when we buy new uniforms, we’ll use a different logo,” Swinford said. “We’re going to phase it out. Immediate is too strong of a word. They asked for a timeline, and we do need a timeline because it does get expensive. We just bought those uniforms.” Although Swinford plans to comply with the cease and desist letter, neither she nor Vicksburg football coach Alonzo Stevens were happy about it. Stevens called it “a compliment” that his school wanted to emulate a successful Florida program. “I take it as a compliment. Vicksburg High and the others aren’t going to cut into the University of Florida’s money. You’ve got two national championships in basketball, two BCS titles ... c’mon!” Stevens said. “We got through playing Madison Central, they look just like Clemson. If that’s all you’ve got to do, c’mon. This is not for a profitable gain. We’re not in the money-making business. To me, as a coach of 30-something years, it’s the most petty thing I’ve seen in my coaching career.” In recent months, CLC has cracked down on high schools using unlicensed trademarks. Several schools in Florida that use the Gator nickname and logos have received the same cease and desist letter Vicksburg High got. Other schools that use logos similar to those used by Florida State, Missouri and Pittsburgh have also gotten warnings. A phone call to a CLC spokesperson from The

Vicksburg Post was not returned. In a story published last week in the Sun Sentinel of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., University of Florida spokeswoman Janine Sikes said the crackdown was less about the logo’s use and more about the sale of unlicensed merchandise. “We have an obligation to protect our trademark or we can lose it to the public domain,” Sikes told the Sun Sentinel. “That was one of the big issues. When the schools are using the merchandise, we lose quality control and all kinds of control on how that logo is used or produced.” Swinford worried about running afoul of trademarks in the future. She noted the large number of high schools whose uniforms emulate college programs, and said part of the blame lies with thirdparty vendors who showcase the logos. “When we go to buy our uniforms, the vendors show us some clip art they have to select from. We did not download this mark from Florida’s web site,” Swinford said. Swinford was also concerned about how far a school’s ability to trademark something can go. “There are only so many mascots. We were kind of appalled by it,” Swinford said. “What if they try to trademark the word ‘Gators?’ There’s not a lot of mascots you can use. If you look at the animals out there, you have the monkeys, the armadillos or the ants.” For now, though, Swinford was confident that Florida was only coming after Vicksburg’s logo and not its nickname. “To the best of my research, the only thing they’ve trademarked is that mark,” Swinford said. “They can take away our gator mark, but they can’t take away our Gators. We’ll fight for that identity.”

Mount Olive blanked Bogue Chitto 14-0 to climb into a tie for second in the region. “They’re fast and they played good defense,” Smithhart said of the Flashes. “They have a good team.” The Pirates are led by Rueben Duckworth, who has rushed for 1,525 yards this season. In a 22-21 loss to Cathedral, Duckworth ran for 326 yards. He had 307 yards in a 28-14 win over Dexter. “Good player, been there for three years,” Smithhart said of Duckworth.

Cage calls for united fight against crime Oscar-winning actor Nicolas Cage, the frequent star of gangster thrillers, is calling for a united fight against organized crime. Cage, a United Nations goodwill ambassador for global justice, says the threat posed by criminal networks is too big for communities or states to confront on their own and that countries must work together to battle it. Nicolas He warns that regions weakened by conflict, Cage lawlessness and extreme poverty are especially susceptible to “the deadly infection that preys on human beings.” Cage won the Academy Award for Best Actor for his role in “Leaving Las Vegas” in 1995. He spoke today at a conference aimed at boosting support for a U.N. convention to curb organized crime.

Ex-Playmate accused of shooting man A former Playboy Playmate of the Year who appeared in the horror movie “Rosemary’s Baby” has been charged with shooting her boyfriend at their Hollywood apartment. The district attorney’s office says 66-year-old Victoria Rathgeb pleaded not guilty to attempted murder Tuesday. She remains jailed Wednesday on $1.5 million bail and could face up to life in prison if convicted. Police said that she shot her boyfriend during a domestic dispute Saturday evening. Los Angeles police spokeswoman Norma Eisenman says the man, whose identity wasn’t released, remains in critical condition. Rathgeb was 1968’s Playmate of the Year under the name of Angela Dorian. She had TV and movie roles in the 1960s and 1970s and played a recovering heroin addict in the 1968 hit “Rosemary’s Baby.”

She said it Rihanna will “merge all of her businesses, including music, film, fragrance fashion and book ventures.” Jay-Z signed Rihanna to Def Jam in 2005. The two won a Grammy in 2008 for the hit song “Umbrella.” Earlier this year, the pair picked up two Grammys for the rap song “Run This Town,” which also featured Kanye West. She’s released four albums and plans to release her fifth CD, “Loud,” on Nov. 16.

Man with coke asks cop for ride, nabbed A 19-year-old Northern California man was arrested after he asked a police officer for a ride, agreed to be searched and was found to have cocaine in his pocket, authorities said. Ongley Raymond Ocon III was charged with felony possession of cocaine. San Mateo County prosecutors said Ocon left a party in San Carlos early Sunday morning, walked up to a Redwood City police patrol car and asked for a ride home to Danville. The officer asked Ocon whether he was carrying anything illegal. Chief Deputy District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said Ocon initially responded “yes” before pausing and saying “no.” Wagstaffe said Ocon then agreed to be searched, and the officer discovered the cocaine.

Penthouse magazine founder dies at 79 DALLAS (AP) — Bob Guccione tried the seminary and spent years trying to make it as an artist before he found the niche that Hugh Hefner left for him in the late 1960s. Where Hefner’s Playboy magazine strove to surround its pinups with an upscale image, Guccione aimed for something a little more direct with Penthouse. More explicit nudes. Sensational stories. Even more sensational letters that began, “Dear Penthouse, I never thought I’d be writing you...” It worked for decades for Guccione, who died Wednesday in Texas at the age of 79. He estimated that Penthouse earned $4 billion during his reign as publisher. He was listed in the Forbes 400 ranking of wealthiest people with a net worth of about $400 million in 1982. In 1984 it was the magazine that took down Miss America, publishing nude pictures of Vanessa Williams, the first black woman to hold the title. Williams, who went on to fame as a singer and actress, was forced to relinquish her crown after the release of the issue, which sold nearly 6 million copies and reportedly made $14 million. But Guccione’s empire fell apart thanks to several bad investments and changes in the pornography industry, which became flooded with competition as it migrated from print to video and the Internet. His company, his world-class art collection, his huge Manhattan mansion — all of it, sold off. Guccione’s family said in a statement that he died at Plano Specialty Hospital in Plano. His wife, April Dawn Warren Guccione, had said he had battled lung cancer for several years. Guccione started Penthouse in 1965 in England to subsidize his art career and was the magazine’s first photographer. He introduced the magazine to the American public in 1969 at the height of the feminist movement and the sexual revolution. Penthouse quickly posed a challenge to Playboy by offering a mix of tabloid journalism with provocative photos of nude women. The centerfolds were dubbed Penthouse

He added that he attained a stylized eroticism in his photography by posing his models looking away from the camera. “To see her as if she doesn’t know she’s being seen,” he said. “That was the sexy part. That was the part that none of our competition understood.” Guccione built a corpo-

New Zealand might lose ‘Hobbit’ over actor dispute WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — New Zealand may lose the filming of “The Hobbit” movies because of an actors’ pay dispute, with financial backers Warner Bros. making arrangements to shift the production elsewhere, director Peter Jackson warned today. The “Lord of the Rings” film trilogy based on the J.R.R. Tolkien novels relied heavily on the rugged landscape of New Zealand, which in turn received a tourism boost after becoming associated with Tolkien’s Middle Earth fantasy world inhabited by hairyfooted little people and a host of other colorful beings. But the $500 million, twomovie prequel, “The Hobbit,” may end up shooting somewhere else, Jackson’s Wingnut Films said. The New Zealand union, Actors Equity, insisted the dispute was being resolved and that it had lifted its work bans on the project, while foreign counterparts, including the powerful U.S. Screen Actors Guild that had backed the boycott, said its members were now free to work on the films. But senior producers in Jack-

son’s company said it may be too late to save the production in New Zealand. Fran Walsh, Jackson’s Peter partner and Jackson co-producer, said Warner Bros. already had an executive in England scoping locations and assessing the studio used for shooting the Harry Potter series to relocate “The Hobbit” movies. Jackson’s company, Wingnut Films, said that Warner Bros. representatives were coming to New Zealand next week “to make arrangements to move the production offshore” because “they are now, quite rightly, very concerned about the security of their investment.” Farmer Jim’s PumPkin Patch & corn maze

rate empire under the General Media Inc. umbrella that included book publishing and merchandising divisions and Viva, a magazine featuring male nudes aimed at a female audience. He also created Penthouse Forum, the pocketsize magazine that played off the success of the racy letters to the editor. Guccione and longtime business collaborator Kathy Keeton, who later became his third wife, also published more mainstream fare, such as Omni magazine, which focused on science and science fiction, and Longevity, a health advice magazine. Keeton died of cancer in 1997 following surgery, but Guccione continued to list her on the Penthouse masthead as president. Guccione lost much of his personal fortune on bad investments and risky ventures. Probably his best-known business failure was a $17.5 million investment in the 1979 production of the X-rated film “Caligula.” Malcolm McDowell was cast as the decadent emperor of the title, and the supporting cast included Helen Mirren, John Gielgud and Peter O’Toole.

Distributors shunned the film, with its graphic scenes of lesbianism and incest. However, it eventually became General Media’s most popular DVD. Guccione also lost millions on a proposed Atlantic City casino. He never received a gambling license and construction of the casino stalled. Legal fees further eroded his fortune. Among those who sued were televangelist Jerry Falwell, a California resort, a former Miss Wyoming and a Penthouse Pet who accused Guccione of forcing her to perform sexual favors for business colleagues. In 1985, Guccione had to pay $45 million in delinquent taxes. The next year, U.S. Attorney General Edwin Meese’s Commission on Pornography issued a report attacking the adult entertainment industry. Guccione called the report “disgraceful” and doubted it would have any impact, but newsstands and convenience stores responded by pulling Penthouse from their magazine racks. Sales dropped after the Meese commission report and years later took another hit with the proliferation of X-rated videos and Web sites. According to the Audit Bureau of Circulations, Penthouse’s circulation dipped below 1 million in the late 1990s and fell to about 463,000 in 2003, the year General Media Inc. filed for bankruptcy. Over the first six months of 2010, Penthouse reported circulation of barely 178,000. “The future has definitely migrated to electronic media,” Guccione acknowledged in a 2002 New York Times interview. In 2004, a private-equity investor from Florida acquired Penthouse in a bankruptcy sale. Penthouse and related properties are now owned by FriendFinder Networks Inc., a Boca Raton, Fla.-based company that offers social networking and online adult entertainment, including some with the Penthouse brand. FriendFinder made a bid this year for Playboy, which now outsells Penthouse roughly 10 to one, but Hefner has rejected it.

The Vicksburg Post

Measure of a man doesn’t always depend on how tall he is Dear Abby: Regarding the letter from “Lost in the Land of Aloha” (Sept. 1) and whether short men are considered less desirable — height is relative. I am 5’3” and dated taller men, usually 6 feet and over, because those were the guys who just were around and seemed to be attracted to me. Then I met my husband. He’s 5 feet 6 inches and absolutely wonderful. Before me, he dated much taller women. He’s kind, loving, showers me with affection, offers me understanding, is a fantastic father and a complete kid-magnet. He cooks, washes dishes, does laundry, changes diapers and actually picks things up off the floor instead of vacuuming around them. I am the luckiest woman on this planet, and I know it. Never pass up a short guy. They’re not short — they’re fun-sized! — Very, Very Happy Wife in Texas

DEAR ABBY ABIGAIL

VAN BUREN

Dear Wife: I received a tsunami of responses to my question, “Does height really matter?” And it shows there’s no “shortage” of support for men like “Kal” (“Aloha’s” friend) and your honey of a husband. Read on: Dear Abby: My husband and I are both 5 feet 6 inches. In the past I was concerned that we didn’t fit the stereotype of the man being taller than the woman, but it has actually worked out great. We can switch cars without having to adjust the seats and mirrors. Our lips line up exactly when we kiss. I never have to stand on my toes! On our

TOMORROW’S HOROSCOPE

BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Even though you and your mate may have a common objective, if you aren’t being supportive of one another, each could go about handling it in a manner that would undermine the entire effort. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Enjoy yourself and have a good time, but be extra mindful of common health concerns. Be careful not to eat or drink more than you should, and don’t overtax your physical stamina. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — If you behave too flamboyantly, members of the opposite gender might not see you as being charismatic as you would like or as wonderful as you envision yourself to be. Hang on to your ego. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ­— If you attempt to throw your weight around in areas that you have no business trying to control, you will quickly be pegged for trespassing. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Without realizing it, you could be extremely intolerant of anybody who isn’t in complete agreement with your ideas. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — This could turn out to be one of those rainy days for which you should have been saving your pennies, but, sadly, when you check your wallet, you might find it holding nothing but faded photographs. Aries (March 21-April 19) — On the whole, others will enjoy working alongside you unless your assertiveness becomes overwhelming. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — You’ve heard of the old saying “What goes around comes around.” This is nice if you’ve done something good, but it’ll be a different story for you if the opposite is true. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — A tip given to you by a well-intentioned friend could be of little substance, so before you gamble on it, be sure to thoroughly check out all the sources that you can find. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Strive to be cognizant of the feelings of your family members when dealing with them. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — A particular philosophy that works well for you doesn’t necessarily do so for a friend, so don’t impose your ideas on him/her. Instead of helping, it could weaken the relationship. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Although you might be enjoying a slight edge in a commercial arrangement, keep in mind that it could be extremely thin. You’ll quickly discover its fragility if you try to push things too far.

TWEEN 12 & 20

BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: I am 16, a good student, and I enjoy very much being alone. I do have good friends and don’t suffer from depression. It’s just that I enjoy my private moments — when I read, listen to music, study or just think. My grandmother, who lives with us, thinks that it is unhealthy to spend a lot of time alone when I could be “socializing.” Do you find my being a “semi-loner” a cause for concern? I’m sure your answer will be no, but I want my parents and grandmother to read it. — Brandy, Rockford, Ill. Brandy: Several years ago, the University of Chicago researched teen solitude and concluded that being alone can be of great benefit to a young person. Solitude helped the majority of studied teens in three important ways: • Their concentration is keener when they spend time alone. Schoolwork and hobby projects done in solitude prove to be of higher quality. • Many teens report feeling more cheerful, alert and friendly after spending time by themselves. • Regular solitude gives teens the opportunity for reflection and introspection, helping them solve problems and think through life issues. The study gives the following suggestions for teens to determine when, where and how to maximize the benefits of time away from the daily hubbub while minimizing feelings of loneliness: • If you have your own room at home, make it an enjoyable environment, conducive to entertaining yourself. Make your room a haven from the outside world with books, posters, wallpaper and a few favorite things unique to your tastes. • Take a few private moments every day to check in with yourself. Try to schedule this quiet period when you can benefit most from solitude. • Try to discipline yourself to spend some time working on constructive projects. If you are active when you’re alone, you’ll find that you are less likely to slip into the trap of loneliness. So, close the door on the world for a while and spend time reading, exercising or planning your life. Make sure grandmother is aware that being a loner or a semiloner is not unhealthy behavior when the person is not depressed and enjoys solitude. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service.

wedding day, I wore gorgeous ballet flats. “Kal” will eventually find a woman who appreciates him for the breadth of his heart and not the length of his body. — Seeing Eye to Eye in Illinois Dear Abby: It’s all a matter of personal preference. I need to think the man I’m with will be able to protect me if need be. I don’t have that feeling with a short guy. And it doesn’t matter how muscular he is — it’s the height that counts in my mind. — Likes Looking Up at the Guy Dear Abby: You bet a man being tall makes a difference. I’m an average-sized bachelor who works around many attractive women. I get plenty of flirting and interest, but every time I meet one of my co-workers’ husbands, he’s a tall athletic stud. That’s just the way it goes. — The Short of It in Longmont, Colo. Dear Abby: This may seem

shallow, but height does matter to me. I’m a tall woman, and when I date men who are shorter than I am, I feel even bigger. It makes me uncomfortable, which does not make for a good date. — Tall Drink of Water in Eugene, Ore. Dear Abby: Aren’t you aware that the vast majority of females prefer taller men? “Heightism” is a rampant and virulent prejudice. Even if a guy is an inch or two taller than the woman, he will be considered too short if he isn’t taller than she is when she’s wearing heels. Women go gaga over the really tall guys. I can’t count the number of times I’ve heard them brag about how tall their man happens to be. I have never heard a female boast, “My boyfriend’s only 5 feet 6, but he really is all man.” — Roland in Maine Dear Abby: Does height matter? Not a whit! I’m a

Woman wants to stop losing weight, but can’t Dear Dr. Gott: I am a 50-ish African-American woman with a problem most think I am lucky to have. I can’t stop losing weight. My cholesterol is on the high side, so I can’t eat most high-calorie foods because they also contain a lot of fat. I am also a vegetarian, don’t like sweets very much, and work out at a gym daily. I don’t want to put on much weight. My normal weight is around 100 pounds, and I’m mentally comfortable with that. My doctors have looked at the obvious: They have checked my thyroid and for any digestive disorders. I love food and eat a lot of pasta with veggies sautéed in olive oil. I also love cheese but don’t want to raise my cholesterol levels higher. Other than the weight loss, I’m in excellent shape. Can you give me any suggestions? Dear Reader: There are a number of common causes for weight loss, but you don’t appear to fit the norm. They include malnutrition, depression, chronic diarrhea, drug use, cancer, excessive alcohol consumption, eating disorders and loss of appetite. One thing that might be an issue is a dental problem or mouth ulcers. Should you have ill-fitting dentures or canker sores, this might be addressed. If you faint or feel lightheaded, sweat excessively, have increased thirst, palpitations, have hair loss are on laxatives or diuretics, these issues, too, might be considered. They may lead to an underlying cause that your physician has not addressed. You might consider speaking with your doctor regarding a nutritional assessment and making sure that you have had complete laboratory analysis. A vegetarian diet is commonly a healthful one and far better than consuming fast foods on a regular basis. You might choose to speak with a dietician at your local hospital for some fine-tuning that will allow your weight to stabilize. You apparently are burning more calories than you are consuming. A way around this is to supplement your meals with snacks throughout the day. Granola bars, fruit and raw vegetables would be good choices. I don’t know what your breakfast consists of, but you might consider making your own cereal with a variety of nuts, cranberries, honey and raisins. Top it with skim milk, and have a glass of orange juice and tea or black coffee. There are countless ways of incorporating good foods into your diet without packing on the pounds, but it may take a little preparation on your part to make this happen.

Working for warmth

Firewood the preferred winter fuel for some By David Hopper newsreleases@vicksburgpost.com For the past 30 years, Vicksburg resident Don McAuley has cut firewood on his property. “Cutting and splitting the firewood is probably one of my favorite things to do,” said the 53-year-old. “It gives you a lot of exercise and makes you feel good. Like the old adage says, ‘Firewood warms you twice.’” McAuley burns wood during the winter on a cast-iron free-standing heater, warming his entire home. It’s a lot cheaper than using electric heat and it warms his home much quicker, he said. He prefers to cut wood in February or March when it’s not so hot and the trees don’t have as much sap, but late summer is a good time, too, because they aren’t soaking up as much water as in the spring. Though McAuley will cut up any tree that falls on his property and use it for firewood, he said oak is best. “It’s a harder and heavier wood,” he said. “A lot of times it’s one of the easier ones to split, especially if you got a nice clean tree. It just does good all around.” Of all the trees on his land, he said, oak yields the most BTUs, a unit of measurement for thermal energy. Jamie Emfinger, a retired millwright who owns Firewood City in Vicksburg, also said that oak, particularly red oak, burns best of all the trees in Warren County. Emfinger delivers oak firewood by the half cord for $90, “but it’s way over that, it’s about three-quarters of a cord when I put it in the truck,” he said. A full cord, the standard unit of measurement for firewood, measures 4 feet high by 4 feet wide by 8 feet long when the wood is tightly stacked. The 54-year-old, who has been cutting and selling firewood since 1971, first started to cut wood because he was tired of buying gas to heat his home. “It was eatin’ me up,” he said. “I decided if I was gonna buy the stuff, I might as well do it myself and make a few dollars on it.” He said the main reason he cuts and delivers wood is to help the elderly, who make up the majority of his customers. “I get a reward seeing the smile when I pull up to their house,” he said. All firewood contains moisture, and freshly cut wood can be up to 45 percent water. Well-seasoned firewood, which has about 20-25 percent moisture content, is easier to start, produces more heat and burns cleaner.

David Jackson•The Vicksburg Post

Jamie Emfinger cuts a red oak log into chunks to be used for firewood. Emfinger said he usually seasons his wood for about four months. McAuley said he stores his wood in a barn for sometimes more than a year. The Chimney Safety Institute of America, a nonprofit, educational organization, recommends examining firewood before buying it. Well-seasoned wood generally has darkened ends with visible cracks, is relatively lightweight, and makes a “clunk” when pieces are knocked together. On the

other hand, unseasoned, or “green” wood, is much heavier, the ends look fresher, and it tends to make a dull “thud.” However, the CSIA says the best way to ensure it’s good is to buy it in the spring, before burning it, and store it a dry place, preferably off the ground. It’s also important to buy locally because foreign pests can be transported by firewood, said Tommy Walker, a Mississippi Forestry Commission service forester for

Warren County. For example, the emerald ash borer, a beetle native to Asia that destroys ash trees, has been discovered in 14 states and was spotted in Tennessee. “If it ever gets in the area, it’s going to be a big problem because there’s a lot of ash in Warren County,” Walker said. “Ash is a desirable species, too. It’s a real pretty wood.”

Do your homework before planting trees By The Associated Press When Lynne and Kemper Smith moved to Golden, Colo., from Florida six years ago, they bought a new house and planted trees — fruit trees out back and a cache of aspen near the front door. Very Colorado, those aspen. Unfortunately, it was the wrong part of Colorado. “I was a Florida boy and didn’t know what I was doing,” Kemper Smith says. “I didn’t know they’d get this big.” Planting the wrong tree in the wrong place is common, according to arborists around the country. Homebuilders and homeowners often plant trees too close to houses, power lines or roads because they don’t consider how the trees will look 20 or 30 years down the road. And, they choose trees that aren’t necessarily suited to the soil and region. Short-term aesthetics win out over longerterm attractiveness and care. “I think that a lot of it is lack of education,” says Jon Elliott, an arborist for Denver-area Swingle Lawn, Tree & Landscape Care. Fall is a good time for planting trees and shrubs, but homeowners need to do their homework. Learn about your area’s cli-

Homework Continued from Page 3. the expert, the location and the kind of tree. Linda Eremita, staff arborist at TreePeople, a Los Angeles-area environmental nonprofit, suggests this rule: Plant trees that can grow large — 60 feet or taller — at least 10 to 15 feet from the house. Plant trees not expected to grow as tall at least 10 feet from the house. Depending on the species, a tree planted within a few feet of a house can pose a fire hazard. Its branches may graze a home or its windows. An older, sick or soft-wood tree can crash into the home during a storm. Underground, other dangers lurk: The root system may search out cracks in the foundation or in aging sewer pipes. “Roots are opportunistic,” says Eremita. While they won’t break into an intact pipe, she said, a broken, seeping pipe is a different story. Tree roots thrive on the extra water and can wind their way into cracks, enlarging them. “(The roots) get bigger and they get really happy, then they grow into the pipe,” Eremita says. Check with utility companies to find out where electrical, gas, water and sewer lines enter your house, and plant trees at least 6 feet away from them, says

On Page 7 Now’s the time to break out the shovel Eremita. Also, check with your city for how near the street trees may be planted. Eremita plants trees at least 5 feet from fences, walkways and driveways. Again, she says, it depends on the type of tree. Experts also recommend plants native to a region. For example, while the Smiths’ aspens do grow well in the Colorado mountains, they become susceptible to fungus, disease and insect infestation at lower altitudes, including Golden. The river birch, which looks similar, is the better suburban yard tree there, says Elliott. When consulting with arborists and landscapers, learn if they are certified. “Don’t be afraid to ask for references,” says Elliott. With a landscape designer, contractor or architect, “Ask for a portfolio.” Cooperative extension services, often housed at state universities, have experts who can help homeowners. Websites also provide tree shopping and care tips.

Don’t let the bedbugs bite

EPA web database takes aim at pests From staff reports With cases of bedbug infestations increasing, many people are turning to pesticides. To help people find an appropriate pesticide, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has created a new database listing all pesticides registered for this purpose. The new search tool will allow consumers to choose an EPA-registered bedbug product that meets their needs and is safe. “This new database will help Americans select a safe, EPA-approved pesticide to help rid their home of bedbugs,” said Steve Owens, assistant administrator for EPA’s Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention. “While this tool ensures a safer way of dealing with bedbugs, chemical pesticides are most effective when used properly and in conjunction with practical steps like reducing clutter, covering mattresses, vacuuming and other methods.”

Online • Bedbug pesticides database — www.epa.gov/bedbugs/productsearch • Tips on preventing bedbug infestations — www.epa.gov/bedbugs

Pesticides are one of many tools that can be used in combating bedbug infestations. When used in a comprehensive approach that combines vigilance in monitoring, integrated pest management techniques and other non-chemical control methods, registered pesticide products can work. More than 300 different anti-bedbug products are registered by the EPA. When selecting a pesticide, it is important to choose one that is appropriate for the situation, and always follow the instructions on the label.

Grab your shovel and get to plantin’ now By The Associated Press Fall planting of trees and shrubs might go against your grain. Fall is when you probably feel like closing down the garden, gathering the final harvests and snuggling plants in for the cold months ahead. Spring is when the urge to plant becomes irresistible, when most of us want to contribute to the symphony of colors and scents of the season. In fact, though, fall is in many ways a better time for planting from the point of view of a tree or shrub. Many nurseries dig bare root plants in the fall, then sell some and store the remainder through winter. Such plants are, obviously, fresher in the fall. Perhaps most important, fall planting allows trees and shrubs time to establish themselves before winter cold settles into the soil. Roots begin growing as soon as they touch moist earth, and continue to do so as long as the soil temperature stays above about 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Not so for stems. Short days and nippy temperatures at the end of the growing season bring stem growth to a halt, and growth can’t begin again until lengthening days or a sufficient duration of cold signals

The associated press

A plum tree is ready to be planted in New Paltz, N.Y. to dormant buds that winter is truly over. Growth is then ready to begin as soon as temperatures warm.

Any fall-planted tree or shrub is already in place, its roots growing in the soil, when the first warm breaths of spring

coax stems to begin growing. If you plant in spring, though, root growth is only just beginning when stems begin growing. Or worse. Stems sometimes begin growing before the plant is even in the ground — a real problem with bare root nursery stock. Even the ground is usually in better condition for digging in fall than in spring. Summer’s warmth still lingers in the soil, long enough to keep it moist — not sodden — and crumbly for much of the time, just right for digging planting holes. Contrast this with the slurpy, cold condition of the soil in spring. Digging a soil that is sodden ruins its structure, driving out the air, so one frustration of spring planting is waiting for the soil to dry out somewhat, all the while watching plant buds beginning to expand and grow. Frustration doubles when, after waiting for the soil to dry enough to plant, you have to immediately begin a regimen of weekly watering. One thorough soaking is usually all that fall-planted trees and shrubs need; winter rain and snow take care of the rest until later in spring. A few precautions are needed with fall See Plantin’, Page 8.

Typography hits the right key in home decor By The Associated Press Numbers and letters are hot off the press this season in decorative items, dishware and soft furnishings. Typographic decor spans a variety of styles, from vintage — in the form of letterpress or old correspondence imagery — to clean-lined modern graphics, often using bold text or individual symbols. Before designing dinnerware, Christopher Jagmin was a graphic designer. “I love and appreciate the art of typography,” he says. “We’re all surrounded by it every day. We type on computers, we’re aware

of it on advertising, billboards, magazines and on television.” His numbered plates are creating a lot of buzz — there’s something really artsy about these symbols on a crisp white ceramic plate. Jagmin agrees: “I think that breaking down words to the simplicity of a letter or a number, we see the true beauty and art of a font, and its basic elements.” San Francisco designer Rae Dunn stamps clay cups and plaques with the sparest of phrases; the result is both charming and evocative. “Tres Bien” and “Oui,” say sweet little cups. “C’est la vie,” shrugs a plate. And the homespun phrase “Home

Sweet Home” becomes something special when pressed into creamy clay and embellished with a little bee. Textual decor can add a touch of drama. John Derian was given an envelope of correspondence between two former lovers; throughout the letters, written in 1919, a young lady is trying to recover some personal items. She becomes more impatient with each missive: “Sorry to appear insistent. But I must have my trinkets back.” Derian has decoupaged several of the letters onto beautiful glass trays for a collection he calls “Relationships.”

Special touches can create a beautiful bathroom By The Associated Press

Burnham often makes medicine cabinets for clients. It’s surprisingly simple: “The contractor or builder creates a box for me, and I pick a wonderful frame at my framer and have a mirror made. We use a big hinge on the side that opens 180 degrees.” “In a bathroom, you want to use every bit of space you have for storage,” she says. “So it’s a great way to have an original piece over your sink” and also create ample shelf space. Rather than buying a complete sink and vanity, Flynn suggests choosing a cabinet or dresser at a flea market and then having a sink fitted into the top. Choose a cabinet with legs if you want the illusion of more floor space. You’ll just need a carpenter to cut holes in the top and back. Then a plumber can attach the sink and install the whole thing.

A wooden bathroom floor is also a possibility. The wood can be treated to resist moisture and can be painted any color. What about wallpaper? It’s hugely popular right now, though it’s more common See Bathrooms, Page 12.

HALLS FERRY RD.

Five years ago, the ideal master bathroom was supposed to be large and lavish, with a huge Jacuzzi tub and a mile-long marble vanity. Times have changed, of course, and so have budgets. “Everyone’s scaling down in every single room,” says Sabrina Soto, a real estate agent and host of HGTV’s “Real Estate Intervention” and “Get It Sold.” And yet, Soto says, people still want their bathroom to be something special. It’s where their day begins and ends, “so it’s really a destination for them within their homes.” How can you create a fabulous bathroom without overspending? Soto, decordemon.com founder Brian Patrick Flynn and Los Angeles-based interior designer Betsy Burnham weigh in on the best ways to create an extraordinary, truly personalized bathroom:

Bathrooms Continued from Page 11. in small powder rooms than in master baths. “Can you do wallpaper in a bath you use daily? Yes,” says Burnham. “My wallpaper guy told me about this wonderful finish-coat that your painter can paint over the wallpaper” to protect it from moisture over time. If you don’t want to commit to an entire room of wallpaper, Soto suggests papering one wall in a large, bold pattern.

Choosing hues Like Burnham, Flynn favors baths done in all white or black and white. These choices “never get old,” he says, “and then any single color you mix in will go great.” Flynn also likes white in contrast with charcoal or black/brown (which he describes as “basically a mix of super-dark brown and charcoal, richer than black and not as harsh”). You can bring in a bold accent color by painting one wall, or just through towels and accessories. In choosing accent colors, Soto says, pick something that works well with the decor of the master bedroom.

If you want a tub, consider a freestanding model. They are modern versions of old clawfoot tubs, but with a base that goes all the way to the floor. They feel more like a distinctive piece of furniture than a built-in part of the bathroom. Also, Flynn says, consider how a given color makes you look in the bathroom light. This is a place where “you spend a lot of time looking at yourself,” he says, and if the walls give off a greenish hue you may not feel very attractive first thing in the morning. Another color tip, this one from Soto: Use darker shades of grout, because they’re easier to keep looking clean.

ing model. They are modern versions of old clawfoot tubs, but with a base that goes all the way to the floor. They feel more like a distinctive piece of furniture than a built-in part of the

bathroom. Heated floors are a splurge that some people consider well worth it. Heated towel racks, which are less expensive, offer some of the same luxury. And some of Burnham’s clients say they must have a TV in the bathrooom for watching news in the morning. One last fabulous touch? Flynn loves using a chandelier in place of a basic ceiling light.

Popular splurges “Instead of a big Jacuzzi tub, people want a soaking tub. Or they’re getting rid of the tub altogether,” says Soto. “People would rather have a huge shower that maybe has two showerheads, or do the steamroom shower.” Rain and waterfall showerheads come in many styles, and some units have sprays that run head-to-toe. If you want a tub, consider a freestand-

Get your act together •HARDWARE •PLUMBING before cleaning gutters AND ELECTRICAL From staff reports

Fall is the time of year to get your house in order before winter sets in. For most homeowners, this means it is once again time for a good, old-fashioned gutter cleaning. According to Robert Lenney, a guttercleaning expert whose company has cleaned more than 5 million feet of gutter since 1996, it’s the semi-annual project that strikes fear into the heart of all urban and suburban warriors who face that dreaded request, “Honey, it’s time to clean out the gutters!” “At its best, gutter cleaning is a tedious and disgusting task,” Lenney said. “At worst, it can be scary and downright dangerous. One slight misstep and you are heading to the hospital with a broken bone and bruised ego.” Always let someone know you will be using a ladder to work on your roof or gutters. Use a safe and sturdy ladder, preferably with a small shelf strong enough to hold a five-gallon bucket to collect gutter debris. Make sure to secure the bucket with a lanyard. We recommend a four-legged step ladder

Some tips

• Always let someone know you are cleaning your gutters. • Use a ladder with a shelf and a plywood platform for stabilization. • Clean off the roof first. • Wear rubber-soled shoes or Korkers (shoes with grip spikes) for stability when walking on the roof. • Use a small plastic spade or gutter scoop. • Use gloves and proper eye wear. • Unclog downspouts with a garden hose that has an adjustable spray. • Install a downspout chain to eliminate annoying rain-dripping sounds. • Watch out for hazardous power lines. • Clean gutters twice a year. Source: Robert Lenney, www.gutterglove.com for a single story home, and an extension ladder for a two-story home. An orchard ladder is not recommended because there are only three legs for support and they can become unbalanced.
