Candidates and audience members are seen through the windows on the doors of the Warren County Circuit Courtroom Thursday evening.

Answers, intros short at second forum By Danny Barrett Jr. Short introductions and even shorter answers to a hot-and-cold list of questions marked Thursday night’s forum of candidates running for state and local offices Nov. 8 in Warren County, the second of three events planned before Election Day. For 23 of 30 in local races for supervisor and two court clerk offices who showed up at the circuit courtroom, it was about job creation, improving housing, qualifications and accountability. “We have opportunity right here in Vicksburg,” said Democrat Casey Fisher, making his first bid for public office in the District 4 supervisor race, delivering among the sharpest of introductions of 10 hopefuls and incumbents in the room.

“I’m sick of hearVoter ID initiaing tive draws lines about Madison. I’m sick of hearing about Clinton, even Magee, when Vicksburg has more opportunities. We have more corridors than anyone in this state. I blame it on leadership.” Fisher, 45, a minister and retired postal worker, is opposed by incumbent Bill Lauderdale, 64, seeking his sixth, nonconsecutive term. In response to a housing question, Fisher didn’t rule out “establishing more ordinances” to make living in Warren County more attractive. “I think we need to put things in place to make people do what they’re supposed to do, when it comes to parking on the grass and

pit bulls in the front yard and everything else,” he said to applause from about 45 to 50 people jammed into the courtroom for the session, organized by Vicksburg Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta, Blacks in Government and the Warren County chapter of the NAACP. Lauderdale said the county’s subdivision ordinance enacted in 2004 to bring development in line with drainage and road condition standards takes cooperation to remain relevant. “By working with developers, by working with the city, by working with each other, is the only way we’re going to improve,” he said. “I can’t improve anything by myself. I’ve got to have help from other officials, contractors, developers. And that’s the only way I know to do it.”

Candidates were limited to 2-minute introductions and 1-minute responses to questions from the audience. Questions for circuit clerk candidates dealt with fees, accessibility and whether the staff would be retained. Questions posed to District 2 supervisor candidate Deborah “De” Reul about her desire to eliminate the Parks and Recreation Commission, plans to bring a votech college to Vicksburg and about her residency and vehicle registration sparked another brief buzz. Reul, 61, a transplant from Missouri, said she was working to redevelop Culkin Academy for her votech idea. The building is owned by the school district. She said one of her vehicles has a South Dakota license See Forum, Page A9.

4 in race for county supervisor in District 5 Four candidates are seeking to represent District 5 on the Warren County Board of Supervisors. All independents, they are J.W. Carroll, 64; incumbent Richard George, 62; Ellis Tillotson, 56; and Joe Wooley, 68. Wooley did not return the questionnaire. 1. What is the best course of action Warren County can take in the next four years to build a modernized jail and justice system facility? Carroll: Remodel the existing jail and finish the third floor. The third floor has enough room for over 100 prisoners. Buy the lot next door for adding on. Remodeling will cut down

on spending. This county is almost in a depression. George: In view of the uncertain future in the overall economy, the construction, staffing and operation of the detention facility recommended in the Voorhis/ Robertson Justice Services Inc. planning reports is unlikely to be completed in the next four years. While the construction can be financed through the issuance of general obligation bonds, funds to cover the additional staffing and operations costs of such a facility must come from the county’s general fund. Now is not the time to begin raising taxes in amounts See Election, Page A9.

Vicksburg native killed in Jackson group home By Pamela Hitchins A Jackson man was denied bond in his initial court appearance Thursday after being charged with murder in the death of a Vicksburg native, a Jackson police spokesman said. Donavon Brown, 37, a resident of a group home at 251 Mikell St., appeared in Jackson Municipal Court, said public information officer Colendula Green.

He is accused o f st r i k i n g Johnny Brown, 24, in the head following an argument Monday at the home, Green said. Donavon Hinds Brown County Coroner Sharon Grisham-Stewart said Johnny Brown, no relation to the accused, died of blunt force trauma to the head around 7 p.m. An autopsy con-

firmed the finding, GrishamStewart said. “He was a fun, loving and special person,” said Mary Turner, Johnny Brown’s mother. “He was truly an angel.” Turner said her son had suffered brain damage as a baby when he contracted spinal meningitis. He had attended Vicksburg High School and also a special needs program in Brookhaven, she said. Johnny Brown moved to another facility in Jackson last

year, and then to the Mikell Street group home following brain surgery in May. Turner said investigators told her that her son had intervened when Donavon Brown threatened the caretaker at the home and was struck a few minutes later in the back of his head with a heavy glass mug. “He just hated it when someone would do something to a hurt a lady or a child,” Turner said. Before moving to Jackson,

VCVB expects rise in revenue with move By John Surratt A 3 percent increase in food and lodging tax revenue is expected to come with the Vicksburg Convention and Visitors Bureau’s move to the old Levee Street Depot, the Board of Directors said Thursday in approving a $1.13 million budget for fiscal 2012. The budget goes into effect Jan. 1 with the VCVB’s new fiscal year. The budget projects $1.07 million in revenue from the VCVB’s 1 percent share of the state food and lodging tax. That projection is based on current revenues of $1.017 million in tax revenue, about 10 percent more than the $997,500 budgeted for fiscal 2011. Food and lodging tax money comprise 94 percent of the VCVB’s

revenues. The VCVB’s largest expense is advertising and promotions, which totals $534,250. Radio and TV advertising make up 18.4 percent of that total, $209,100. Salaries and benefits are the next major expense at $405,700, with administrative expenses totaling $81,200. In a related matter, the board approved raises for the VCVB’s salaried employees after a 40-minute executive session. Amounts will be determined by Seratt. When the VCVB moves into the Depot — the date for which has not been determined — it will pay the city $500 monthly in rent. Additionally, the city has agreed to pay $150,000 toward the city’s match of a $1.65 million Mississippi Department of Transportation grant to renovate

the building. The payments are part of a 2010 letter of agreement among the city, the VCVB and Vicksburg Main Street. Under the agreement, VCVB and Main Street will sign 20-year leases for space in the Depot. The convention and visitors bureau will share the second floor with the twofloor transportation museum. The third floor will include Main Street offices and a conference room shared by Main Street and VCVB. Seratt said the $150,000 payment is money made from the sale of the VCVB’s old building at Washington and Clay streets. He said there are still some unknown costs associated with the move. He said the $150,000 for the city and an additional $70,000

to help VCVB operations will be moved to the budget from the organization’s $400,000 money market account, leaving a $180,000 balance. In other action, the board: • Approved the September financial reports. • Approved the executive director’s and department reports. Seratt said traffic at the visitors center was down from September 2010, with 12,298 people registering compared to 12,710 during Sept. 2010. He said foreign visitors were up, with 449 international registrations during September compared with 350 in September 2010. He said the largest number of foreign visitors were from the Netherlands, 39, and Germany, with 32.

Common sense or intimidation?

Voter ID initiative dividing state voters By Emily Wagster Pettus The Associated Press KOSCIUSKO — Mary Ikerd has lived in Kosciusko 17 years, and said she sees the same poll workers every election day. Because of that, she said she believes there’s no pressing need to prove her own identity before she votes. “In little towns, everybody knows you,” Ikerd said in Crown Antiques, the shop she runs on the square in Kosciusko, a town of 7,400 in Attala County. Still, come Nov. 8, Ikerd said she will vote for Initiative 27, a proposed constitutional amendment that would require every person voting in Mississippi to show a driver’s license or other governmentissued photo ID at the polls. Ikerd said she would have no problem showing her ID and she believes that in larger cities such as Jackson and Tupelo, where people move in or out more frequently, some might try to pass themselves off as others to cast a ballot. In those cases, she said ID would be a good deterrent. Supporters say the voter ID initiative is a commonsense proposal to help protect the integrity of elections by preventing people from casting ballots in others’ names, or even from voting in the names of dead people. Opponents say that in Mississippi, where black citizens were violently blocked from voting decades ago, requiring ID is tantamount to setting a poll tax that could diminish minority turnout and disenfranchise the poor. The National Conference of State Legislatures says 30 states require all voters to show ID at the polls — many of them in the Deep South. Fourteen of the 30 require photo ID. Nsombi Lambright, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Mississippi, said that in poor, rural

The associated press

James Wise, 38, says he believes provisions should be made to exempt older people from the voter ID requirement.

Amanda Dean, owner of Josephineís Fine Gifts in Kosciusko, says the voter ID initiative makes sense. areas, many people might lack any form of governmentissued photo ID. She also worries a voter ID law would be applied unevenly, and perhaps unfairly, by poll workers who might not be well trained. Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann, a Republican who is Mississippi’s top elections official, said he supports the voter ID ballot initiative. “We in Mississippi need to step away from where we were 50 years ago. We’ve made a

great deal of progress,” Hosemann said. “A commonsense voter ID to enforce the integrity of the voting for every Mississippian makes sense.” Mississippi law says that if any initiative passes, it would take effect 30 days later. But the process could take longer for voter ID, and there’s no guarantee it would ever be implemented. Because of Mississippi’s history of racial discrimination, the U.S. Justice Depart-

ment must approve any changes to the state’s election laws to ensure the changes don’t dilute minority voting strength. Officials say they can’t predict whether the Justice Department would approve a voter ID requirement in Mississippi. Hosemann said he has been talking to Georgia officials about how that state implemented its voter ID law, which was enacted in 2006 and has been upheld in court decisions. Georgia requires a photo ID, and Hosemann said the state provided free IDs to about 25,000 voters who lacked acceptable identification. He said he’d like to take similar steps in Mississippi. Kosciusko resident James Wise, 38, who is black, said he would have no qualms about showing ID to vote. Wise said he believes there’s a generational divide about voter ID. He said he thinks younger people, regardless of race, would be less hesitant about showing identification than older people. He said older people should be exempt from the requirement.


Miss. oyster season shuts down BILOXI (AP) — The Mississippi Department of Marine Resources, which opened state waters to a limited oyster season Monday, is shutting down the season until further notice. All areas and reefs will close at 3 p.m. Saturday. Scott Gordon, DMR shell-

fish bureau director, says the action is being taken in order to better conserve the oyster resource. He said the surge of fresh water from the Mississippi River flooding in the spring and warm water temperatures resulted in a significant amount of oyster deaths.

A martyr without a cause Say this for Moammar Gadhafi: He vowed to go down fighting, and he did. At any point in the last eight months, he could have bailed out of Libya for a comfortable exile — in Saudi Arabia, perhaps, or some other state unlikely to turn him over to the International Criminal Court. Instead, he had holed up in Sirte, his hometown and the last remaining stronghold of his dwindling band of supporters. On Oct. 20, Gadhafi was captured and — video aired on Libya’s AlAhrar network indicates — summarily executed. When the uprising against him began in February, Gadhafi had vowed to die as a martyr. But martyrs need a cause and followers, and it’s not clear that Gadhafi will qualify. Thus was the ignoble end of one of the strangest and most vicious national leaders in modern history. It came as no surprise. Since mid-March, when NATO forces enlisted on the side of the rebels, slowly escalating their involvement from enforcing a no-fly

zone to providing air support and covert tactical advice, Gadhafi’s days had been numbered. Libya now must grope its way from a revolutionary state to a functional state. The insurgency is a badly organized collection of individual interests, all of whom now are heavily armed, so that could take some time. And there’s little to build upon. During his 42-year rule, Gadhafi systematically destroyed every civil institution in the country. Still, Libya has the ninth-largest oil reserves in the world. The nation will have no shortage of friends willing to help. Already, the interim government has restored production to 350,000 barrels a day, and the new chairman of the state-owned oil company says production will return to pre-revolution levels of 1.6 million barrels a day by late next year. Cash is mounting up at $35 million a day in internationally administered government accounts. Schools and shops are reopening. Now required is a gov-

ernment to decide how to spend that money fairly. In Syria, demonstrators again took to the streets to warn President Bashar al-Assad that his turn was coming. The United Nations estimates that 2,700 demonstrators have been killed since this spring. But civil war in this deeply sectarian nation would be particularly vicious, mitigating against international intervention. A better bet to fall next might be President Ali Abdullah Saleh of Yemen, who faces not only an anti-government insurgency but also a possible U.N. Security Council resolution demanding a change of government. These insurgencies are a double-edged sword for the United States. We support the right of people to live free from tyranny, but we had learned to live with most Arab governments, however horrible. What will come after them is by no means guaranteed to be more in our interests.

GOP contenders need to stop playing game of ethnic politics WASHINGTON — What is it about the immigration issue that brings out the worst in politicians? Neither Mitt Romney nor Rick Perry has a history of being an immigration hard-liner. Romney supported George W. Bush’s attempt at comprehensive immigration reform in 2005, which included a (difficult) path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. When I attended a dinner with Perry during his 2010 campaign for reelection as Texas governor, he was particularly passionate about the need for Republican outreach to Hispanics. Yet Romney has attacked Perry for allowing educational benefits in Texas for the children of undocumented immigrants — calling this policy “a magnet to draw illegals into the state.” Perry has responded that Romney’s Massachusetts health care reform permitted the medical treatment of undocumented immigrants, which a Perry campaign spokesman calls an “illegal immigration magnet.” In this exchange, both campaigns have managed — extending the metaphor — to be repellant. It is one thing to debate techniques of enforcement along America’s southern border. Most of the



Immigrants generally do not come to America for the pleasures of its emergency rooms, or expecting to need future cancer treatment, but in pursuit of economic opportunity.

Republican candidates seem to prefer construction of a physical wall — a public-works program of questionable utility that would make the great pyramids seem a minor, shovel-ready project in comparison. Herman Cain wants the barrier electrified. Michele Bachmann proposes two walls, just in case. Perry, who knows something about the vastness of Texas, seems flummoxed by the absurdity of the whole idea. But a wall, at least, is a defensive measure. Building it would be wasteful instead of vicious. It is another matter to attack the provision of health and education benefits. This approach to immigration policy imposes penalties on the sick and injured, or on students who have often violated no law them-

selves. In most ethical systems, both groups would merit particular sympathy. At the very least, neither group deserves to be placed high on the enforcement target list. Apart from moral considerations, the denial of basic public benefits to undocumented immigrants and their children raises a number of practical questions: How does it benefit America to purposely limit the educational and life prospects of a whole category of students? Isn’t it more costly to provide health care in emergency rooms — where universal access is federally mandated — than to permit treatment in public programs? Isn’t public health broadly undermined by untreated disease, whatever the legal status of those who suffer from it?

Supporters of harsh restrictions argue that these measures are necessary to end incentives for illegal immigration. But the whole magnet theory is questionable. There is not much correlation between the level of illegal immigration to a state and the breadth of its health and education benefits. Immigrants generally do not come to America for the pleasures of its emergency rooms, or expecting to need future cancer treatment, but in pursuit of economic opportunity. In recent years, the dynamic Texas economy has attracted a considerable number of illegal immigrants; the anemic California economy has attracted fewer. The offer of in-state college tuition rates for the children of undocumented workers has little to do with it. Romney, Perry and the others are, unfortunately, reflecting current Republican sentiments. Legitimate concerns — including overwhelmed public services in some communities — and high unemployment have combined to heighten resentment against illegal immigration. But it is the responsibility of political leaders to address this issue without inflaming it. The cynical accommodation of anger encourages serious division in a perma-

nently diverse country. It is primarily the fault of politicians when the immigration debate turns ugly. Republicans have a direct interest in avoiding ugliness. Hispanic political influence is not only increasing but concentrated in competitive states — a key to electoral success in places such as Nevada, Colorado and Arizona. The recent past offers encouragement to the GOP. In the 2004 election, Bush won more than 40 percent of the Hispanic vote. And President Obama has left a political opening. Hispanic unemployment exceeds 11 percent and the administration has consistently discovered legislative priorities higher than immigration reform. On issues of Hispanic concern, Obama’s lip service has been deafening. To gain a respectable level of Hispanic support, Republicans don’t need to play a sophisticated game of ethnic politics. They need to offer the realistic hope of job creation and economic mobility. And one more thing. They need to stop targeting the sick and aspiring. •

Wall Street protesters prepare for harsh weather NATO declares end to Libyan campaign PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Anti-Wall Street protesters around the country who are vowing to stand their ground against the police and politicians are also digging in against a different kind of adversary: cold weather. With the temperature dropping, they are stockpiling donated coats, blankets and scarves, trying to secure cots and military-grade tents, and getting survival tips from the homeless people who have joined their encampments. “Everyone’s been calling it our Valley Forge moment,” said Michael McCarthy, a former Navy medic in Providence. “Everybody thought that George Washington couldn’t possibly survive in the Northeast.” More than a month and a half into the movement, Occupy Wall Street activists from New York to Colorado have pledged to tough out the snow, sleet and cold as they protest economic inequality and what they call corporate greed. But the dangers of staying outdoors in some of the country’s harsher climes are already becoming apparent: In Denver, two protesters were hospitalized with hypothermia this week during a storm that brought several inches of snow. The activists also know full well that the number of demonstrators is likely to drop as the weather gets colder. Some movements are scouting locations indoors, including vacant buildings or other unused properties, possibly even foreclosed homes, though some question the wisdom of holding a protest outside the public eye. Lighting campfires is probably out of the question in most places because of safety regulations.

BRUSSELS — NATO will end its air campaign over Libya on Monday, following the decision of the U.N. Security Council to lift the no-fly zone and end military action to protect civilians. NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said on Friday that the operation was “one of the most successful in NATO history,” one which was able to wind down quickly following the death of former Libyan leader, Moammar Gadhafi. NATO’s 26,000 sorties, including 9,600 strike missions, destroyed about 5,900 military targets since they started on March 31.

An unidentified woman sleeps in a canopy that is part of the Occupy Providence protesters tent city in Burnside Park in downtown Providence, R.I. Boston’s Occupy movement, which has roughly 300 overnight participants and could face some of the most brutal weather of any city with a major encampment, has set up a winterization committee that will try to obtain superinsulated sleeping bags and other winter survival gear. Activists from the movement’s flagship encampment, consisting of hundreds of people in New York City’s Zuccotti Park, are sorting through packages arriving daily that include coats and jackets. In Providence, where city officials are threatening to go to court to evict hundreds of campers from a park across

from City Hall, a core group said it will remain through the winter months — if not there, somewhere else. Rhode Island’s capital has an average low temperature in the 20s from December through February and recorded nearly 3 1/2 feet of snow last year. Many of the more than 100 tents are not built to withstand harsh conditions. Temperatures were expected to drop into the 30s across much of the Northeast by Friday morning, and forecasters said snow is possible in some places over the weekend. Boston got its first dusting late Thursday night. In Denver, as protesters pre-

pared for this week’s snow, a few dozen sympathizers stopped by to drop off blankets, gloves, chili and hot chocolate. Police refused to let activists erect a tent. That left some sleeping on the wet ground, covered by snowy tarps. “I welcome the challenge of this cold weather,” said Dwayne Hudson, a landscaper who has been living at the Occupy Denver site for nearly two weeks. “This is like war. You know, soldiers do it when they occupy a place. I’m sure the mountains of Afghanistan get pretty cold.”

7 dead after semi-truck slams Indiana minivan BRISTOL, Ind. (AP) — A tractor-trailer slammed into the back of a packed minivan in northern Indiana late Thursday, killing at least seven people and sending four others to hospitals, authorities said. The minivan was carrying 10 people when it was hit along the Indiana Toll Road near Bristol, just south of the Michigan border, according to Indiana State Police. Witness accounts suggest that the minivan may have hit a deer,

then slowed or stopped in the eastbound lanes before it was hit from behind by the tractortrailer, police said. Seven of the minivan’s occupants died at the scene and the other three were taken to hospitals, including two who were airlifted. The driver of the tractor-trailer also was hospitalized. None of the victims’ names has been released. The conditions of those who survived also haven’t been released.

ERCIS, Turkey — A 13-year-old boy, trapped for five days inside fallen debris, used a rock in a desperate attempt to dig a hole and free himself from a building that collapsed in a massive earthquake that struck eastern Turkey, his uncle said today. Rescuers from Azerbaijan pulled Ferhat Tokay out of the debris of a multistory building early today, the latest survivor to emerge from the devastation of the 7-2-magnitude quake that leveled buildings and killed at least 570 people. Some 2,500 were injured in the temblor that brought down about 2,000 buildings and left thousands homeless.

Death toll in Iraq bombings rises to 32 BAGHDAD — The death toll of a twin bombing in a Shiite neighborhood in Baghdad rose today to 32


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS — the worst violence to hit Iraq since President Barack Obama last week said all American forces would leave the country by the end of this year. The two blasts, which took place Thursday evening at a music store, wounded 71 other people, police and health officials said. First one bomb went off and then, minutes later, another bomb exploded, targeting rescue workers and onlookers who had arrived after the first blast. The officials said the death toll rose overnight after some of the more seriously wounded died. The wounded had been taken to different hospitals, they said, and so it took time for officials to get an accurate death toll.

Weakening Rina hits Mexican coast PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Mexico — Tropical Storm Rina battered Mexico’s Caribbean coast and the island of Cozumel with winds and rain this morning, and the navy forcibly evacuated some residents who refused to leave a low-lying island in the path of the storm. Rina was a far cry from the Category 3 hurricane that some had feared would hit the resort-studded region and many tourists abandoned Cancun and the Riviera Maya ahead of its arrival. The storm was weakening further early Friday, with maximum sustained winds of near 45 mph, down from 110 mph at its peak.

smart money Q: In 2004, my husband and I purchased a home in Arizona for $160,000. Its value has dropped to $80,000. We are self-employed, and our original plan was to keep this home for 30 years as a rental for our retirement. We thought our plan was solid. However, the home is not rented, and we are paying a 7 percent interest rate. We can no BRUCE longer afford to make the monthly payment. We do not want to walk away, because we believe that would be immoral. We would love to refinance at today’s going rate. We believe that would be fair and affordable. But because of the home’s current value, we are unable to do this. I am sure we are among thousands in this situation. What do we do? Again, we would hate to dump our problem into someone else’s lap, but we can no



longer afford to make payments. — C.M., via e-mail A: You are caught between a rock and a hard spot, and you are certainly not the only people there. The reality is that it’s unlikely in the far foreseeable future that this building will be worth as much as you owe on it. That said, I don’t think trying to refinance at a lower interest rate for a longer period is the answer. Because this is used as a rental, not your primary home, you or an attorney acting on your behalf should be contacting the lender. Give them the numbers and tell them you would like them to entertain the idea of a short sale, which simply means the home could be sold. They will accept far less than what’s owed on it to get this off their books, and, while you would no longer have the “asset,” clearly this house doesn’t meet the definition of that term. You would be out of an impossible situation. •

WASHINGTON (AP) — Americans spent in September at three times the pace of the previous month, even though their incomes barely budged. They financed their spending binges by saving at the lowest level since the start of the Great Recession. Consumer spending rose 0.6 percent last month, the Commerce Department said today. The gain was driven by a big rise in purchases of durable goods, such as autos. Consumers earned only 0.1 percent more after their income fell by the same amount in August. And after adjusting for inflation, their after-tax incomes fell 0.1 percent last month — the third

straight monthly decline. As a result, they saved less. The savings rate fell to 3.6 percent, the lowest level since December 2007. Expectations were high after the government said Thursday that consumer spending helped fuel annual growth of 2.5 percent in the July-September quarter, the best quarterly expansion in a year. Consumer spending is closely watched because it accounts for 70 percent of economic activity. It grew at an annual rate of 2.4 percent in the third quarter. That’s more than triple the growth in the April-June quarter. The economy would have to grow at nearly double the

U.S. stocks open lower after Thursday’s rally NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks edged lower in early trading today after appliance maker Whirlpool Corp. said it will cut 5,000 jobs, citing weak demand and higher costs for materials. Whirlpool slumped 11 percent, the most in the Standard & Poor’s 500 index. The modest decline followed a surge Thursday that put the Dow Jones industrial average on track for its best month since 1987. Investors were reacting Thursday to a plan announced in Europe to defuse the Greek debt crisis. European leaders agreed to expand a regional bailout fund and will force banks to keep bigger cash buffers to protect against future losses. Banks agreed to for-

give half of Greece’s debt. The Dow fell 31 points, or 0.3 percent, to 12,177 just before 10 a.m. Eastern time. The S&P 500 lost 7, or 0.6 percent, to 1,278. The Nasdaq composite index slipped 13, or 0.5 percent, to 2,726. Hopes for Europe’s crisis plan propelled the Dow Jones industrial average up 340 points on Thursday, its biggest jump since Aug. 11. The Dow is up 11.8 percent this month, the S&P 13 percent. Both indexes are on pace to have their best month since January 1987. In less than four weeks, the Dow has risen 14.6 percent from its 2011 low, reached on Oct. 3. The S&P has gained 16.9 percent in that time.

Whirlpool to cut 5,000 jobs NEW YORK — Appliance maker Whirlpool Corp. plans to cut 5,000 jobs, about 10 percent of its work force in North America and Europe, as it faces soft demand and higher costs for materials. The world’s biggest appliance maker also today cut its 2011 earnings outlook drastically and reported thirdquarter results that missed expectations, hurt by higher costs and a slowdown in emerging markets. Shares fell 12 percent in premarket trading. The company, whose brands include Maytag and KitchenAid, has been squeezed by soft demand since the recession and rising costs for materials such as steel and copper.

Chevron 3Q profit more than doubles Chevron Corp.’s quarterly profit more than doubled as a jump in oil prices made up for declining production. The oil company said net income totaled $7.83 billion, or $3.92 per share, for the third quarter. That compared with $3.77 billion, or $1.87 per share, a year earlier. Revenue rose 26 percent to $61.3 billion.

Goodyear posts profit, revenue up 22 percent CLEVELAND — The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. posted a profit for the third quarter on a 22 percent rise


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS in revenue as it pursued its strategy of promoting highend tires. The Akron, Ohio-based company, the biggest U.S. tire maker and third largest globally, said its sales were the best for any quarter in its history. Its shares climbed almost 10 percent to $15.69 in premarket trading. Goodyear said revenue rose to $6.1 billion. Analysts expected $6.26 billion.

Fitch: Greek rating likely to stay ‘junk’ LONDON — Greece’s credit grade will remain low, probably still in “junk” status, even after its debt load is cut as part of a European plan to fight the financial crisis, Fitch ratings agency said today. The EU plan asks Greece’s private creditors to take losses of 50 percent on their holdings of the country’s bonds. Along with new loans and other measures, that is meant to bring Greece’s debt down to 120 percent of economic output by 2020. Fitch welcomed the broad outline of the plan, but said it would likely still leave the country’s rating in the ’B’ category, only a few notches up from its current CCC grade. Most B ratings are in socalled “junk” status, meaning non-investment grade.

third-quarter pace to make a dent in the unemployment rate, which has stayed near 9 percent since the recession officially ended more than two years ago. Economists doubt consumers can keep spending like they did this summer without earning more. Many are struggling with higher prices for food and gas. For spending gains to be sustained, employers need to step up hiring. In recent months, job growth has stagnated. Employers have added an average of only 72,000 jobs per month in the past five months. That’s far below the 100,000 per month needed to keep up with popu-

lation growth. And it’s down from an average of 180,000 in the first four months of this year. Employers added only 103,000 jobs in September, and the unemployment rate remained 9.1 percent for a third straight month. The government releases the October employment report on Nov. 4. And spending could tumble next year if Congress fails to extend a Social Security tax cut, which gave most Americans an extra $1,000 to $2,000 this year, or long-term unemployment benefits. Both expire at the end of the year.

Election Continued from Page A1. sufficient to cover both debt service and significant additional operations costs. Tillotson: We must first define the root problems within the existing judicial system by discussing with the judges and prosecutors changes to better facilitate moving prisoners through the system. For instance, additional prosecutors and more courtroom space in the courthouse could lead to more efficiency. With additional courtroom space and prosecutors we would move detainees through the system and those found guilty turned over to the state prison system, reducing the number of prisoners in our jail. Raising taxes is not an option to operate and build a new jail. Privatization is another option that needs to be considered. 2. If you had to write a comprehensive plan for residential and commercial development in Warren County, what would it say? Carroll: Any contractor working in Warren County, whether it be residential or commercial, needs to have a license and the county needs inspectors for all trades to verify that the construction is done correctly. George: A comprehensive plan should have four elements in order to be effective. These elements are long-range goals, a land-use plan, a transportation plan and a public-facilities plan. • Long-range goals prepare for residential, commercial and industrial development. • Land-use plan proposes review of projected population and economic growth to formulate a guide for proper planning of future private development projects. • A transportation plan would identify and classify all existing or proposed roadways throughout the county. • A public facilities plan would address future needs in parks and recreation, public buildings and drainage basin improvements. Tillotson: An effective long-term plan is the end result of a comprehensive review process. To be beneficial and develop a workable comprehensive plan you first include all of the county,

city and community leadership in the process. Many other communities and counties have a record of success in recruiting new business and industries. Additional research of successful communities in order to arrive at a plan that is best for our community should be conducted. It will take all of us working together to improve our hometown and therefore our plan should be reflective in what is best for all the citizens. 3. What criteria do you/ would you use in voting for tax breaks or other inducements for new or expanding employers? Carroll: To help all unemployed citizens to be re-employed. George: Most business operations have varied needs regarding numbers of employees, equipment, utility consumption and transportation. I believe one must carefully review all the aspects of each exemption request and decide if an exemption is necessary and warranted for the economic stability and growth of this community. Tillotson: When considering tax breaks and inducements, the following criteria should be initially considered: Business Plan, Product/service offered and company historical information, benefit vs. cost to the county, number of new jobs — construction and permanent, revenue for local suppliers and vendors. Depending on the magnitude of the venture, further clarifications and information may need to be obtained. Most businesses that receive tax breaks and inducements are from outside our area. I think we should explore the idea of incentives and/or inducements for locals who start or expand businesses and who also meet certain criteria. 4. What is the best use of the old U.S. 80 bridge to remain a viable countyowned asset? Carroll: Reopen it for traffic to drive back and forth. The citizens of Louisiana wouldn’t have to drive four times farther to come shopping in Vicksburg or for medical treatment. Put up a gate to close traffic when trains have to cross. That way, when the I-20 bridge is closed, people would not have to go to Natchez or

Greenville to cross the river. George: Considering the age and condition of the U.S. 80 bridge, the future appears to present a very expensive maintenance project. Due to the lease with the railroad, the rail revenue covers the cost of maintaining the structure in a presentable and functional condition. The county taxpayer receives no revenue from the bridge, nor do they incur any expense from the bridge. Tillotson: The U.S. 80 bridge is a viable asset to the railroad, but not necessarily to Warren County. Under the current lease agreement with the railroad, the county virtually receives no income and our citizens have very limited use of the bridge. Based on information as I know it, the railroad essentially pays for maintenance of the bridge. In order for our county to have a viable asset, the current railroad lease agreement should be renegotiated whereby the county actually receives residual income. Other options would include a sale of the bridge. 5. Why do you seek the office of county supervisor? Carroll: To stop raising taxes and stop spending money that is not beneficial to the taxpayers. I will be a full-time supervisor and work to serve the citizens any and every way a supervisor should. George: I have enjoyed serving the public during my four terms of office. I believe the citizens are entitled to an official who has proved his willingness to devote the time and effort necessary to deliver prompt, accurate and courteous responses to their concerns, and, also, one who will be on duty and actively monitor county governmental operations. Tillotson: The biggest reason for my decision to run for supervisor is I believe our community has the things it takes to be successful. Our county offers excellent industrial transportation: river, interstate highway and rail. Even still, over the last 10 years we have lost citizens, jobs and tax base, while during this same period of time, Northeast and East Central Mississippi continue to grow, adding jobs and tax base. My hope is to ensure a future for our children and grandchildren.

Forum Continued from Page A1. plate because it’s registered to a corporation there. State law mandates residents to purchase a Mississippi tag within 30 days. Reul owns three homes in Vicksburg. She and Republican Trey Smith, 31, are challenging Democratic incumbent William Banks, 61. Of 14 candidates for supervisor, three were no-shows — Jerry Briggs and Reed Birdsong in District 1 and Joe Wooley in District 5, all independents. James Stirgus Jr., District 3’s school board member and challenger for its county board seat, arrived about 30 minutes before the forum ended, after supervisor candidates were finished. Stirgus had been at a school board meeting. Tax assessor candidates Angela Brown and Mike Caruthers and tax collector hopeful Patty Mekus also didn’t show; all three cited prior commitments, said Gertrude Young of Delta Sigma Theta. Brown is a Democrat; Caruthers and Mekus are Republicans. Tax assessor candidates Ben Luckett, 39, and Doug Tanner, 53, both independents, agreed foreclosures can bring down property values. Tax Collector Antonia Flaggs Jones, 40, leaned on her experience under former tax collector Patricia Simrall, for whom she worked for 15 years, as her chief qualification. The question of a new jail was put to Sheriff Martin Pace and challenger Bubba Comans, a former deputy. Pace, 53, again said his office continually will update supervisors on the jail, built mostly in 1907 and last renovated in the 1970s. Comans, 56, contended the structure’s third floor, essentially an empty parapet roof, could fit “70 to 80 more beds” if renovated. The notion has been cast aside as too costly by the current county board. Circuit Clerk Shelly Ashley-Palmertree — under fire most of this year due to a state auditor’s investigation into fee accounting practices — used her experience as a plus when talk among four candidates turned to qualifications. “There are some fine candidates running for this

A9 office,” she said. “What separates me from them is that I already know day-to-day operations for this office.” Challenger Jan Hyland Daigre, 49, an independent, kept up an aggressive tone. “Management of the circuit clerk’s office is broken,” she said. Republican David Sharp, 29, stuck to his “big man for a big job” mantra, while Robert Terry, 55, an independent, said he’d dedicate all collections above state-set caps to go to a nonprofit to help children. Republican Donna Farris Hardy, 57, one of four chancery clerk candidates, leaned on her 31 years in administrative roles at Warren Yazoo Mental Health Services. Hardy is opposed by Vicksburg City Clerk Walter Osborne, a Democrat, and independents Alecia Ashley, 36, a legal assistant, and Gene Thompson, 70, a retired forester. Osborne, 52, city clerk since 1999, touted himself as “the only candidate with over 15 years working in the chancery clerk’s office.” Statewide candidates faced questions about health care reform. “Obamacare is a way to create access and affordable health care,” state Rep. George Flaggs, D-Vicksburg, in opening remarks. Flaggs, 58, the area’s senior legislator, seeks a seventh term in Jackson against Republican Sam Smith, whom Flaggs beat to win the seat in 1987. Smith, a restaurant employee, described he and Flaggs as “friends,” but said the national health care law — outside the purview of the state House — would add to the state’s Medicaid roll, which numbers 600,000. Also attending were Democrats Louis Fondren, a former state representative from Gautier challenging Insurance Commissioner Mike Chaney, public service commission candidate Addie Green, of Bolton, and Pickens Mayor Joel Gill, who faces state Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith in the race to succeed retiring agriculture and commerce commissioner Lester Spell. The third and final forum slated before the Nov. 8 general election will be Tuesday at 6 p.m. at LeTourneau Volunteer Fire Department, 1720 Redbone Road. All countywide candidates and those for District 4 supervisor have been invited.

are still aggressively pursuing this.” “That plane definitely did not come from one of the local airports,” Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace said. At issue for the FAA are two alleged violations of FAA airspace regulations and for the sheriff’s office, criminal misdemeanor charges of disturbing the peace and littering. “Again, we have to substantiate the alleged activity with evidence, but the concerns for us would be the minimum safety altitude of 1,000 feet for a plane in a congested area and in an area where there was an assembly of people,” Bergen said. “The second was the dropping of objects from the plane.” As for the FAA, violations of its regulations can result in certification action, which means a pilot can have his pilot’s license suspended or revoked, and in some cases, a civil penalty. A member of WC’s Lady Vikes soccer team said the plane flew in at between 100 and 200 feet. “It seemed like I could just jump up and touch it, it was that close,” said Lady Vike junior Hannah Miller. “It went right over the school sign. After the leaflets were dropped, I could tell the football coaches were pretty mad.”

other administrators last week visited the Aldine and Alief independent school districts in Houston. Both have been judged high-performing Title 1 districts, which means they qualified for federal funding based on high level of poverty. The purpose of the visit was to see how school districts that face obstacles such as high poverty and a high number of minorities whose second language is English become successful, Superintendent Dr. Elizabeth Duran Swinford said. Those two districts were chosen because of their similarities to the VWSD, she said. At VWSD, which receives Title 1 federal funds, the free and reduced meal program enrolled 74 percent of its 9,000-student population last year and about the same this year. Two-thirds of the students are minority. Aldine, in northeast Houston, has 62,055 students in 73 schools. Of those students, 67 percent are Hispanic and 28 percent are black, according to its website. The district was labeled by the Texas Education Agency under the Distinguished Progress Schools in Texas category in the 2009-10 academic year as Academically Acceptable, the best of four ratings, its website said. Alief, in west Houston, has 45,000 students in 45 schools. It was “Recognized” in the Distinguished Performance

Schools in Texas category, its website said. That means at least 80 percent of the tested students passed each of the subject tests. The only other standards, with “Exemplary” being the better one and meaning 90 percent passed in every subject. Race information for Alief was unavailable. The 15 local principals visited three schools in each Houston district, and the same schools will be visited on the second trip, which has not been scheduled. Reed said he noted one strategy that he will try to implement.

The river crested at Vicksburg May 19 at a historic 57.1 feet, 14.1 feet above flood stage and 1.3 foot above the Great Flood of 1927. The site, which sits on the west side of Washington Street between Jackson and China streets, did not flood, but the area to the west did, hindering work by contractors who used the area for equipment. Another part of the downtown attraction is the old Levee Street Depot, in which restorations are slated to be

complete this month. The 104-year-old building flooded this spring and was used as a backdrop by national media. The depot will house a transportation museum and office space for Vicksburg Main Street Program and Vicksburg Convention and Visitors Bureau. The concept of building an interpretive museum began in 1992, when the City of Vicksburg purchased the retired MV Mississippi IV for $1. The title was returned to the Corps in 2007. Groundbreaking for the museum came in November 2009. The museum’s opening remains on target for August 2012, Renacker said.

On the agenda Meeting Thursday, the Vicksburg Warren School District Board of Trustees: • Approved minutes from Sept. 22. • Accepted the following donations: $295 from Robert Morrisson III to purchase graduation stoles for the National Technical Honor Society of the Class of 2012 at Vicksburg High; $247.45 from McDonald’s for student activities at Dana Road Elementary; $150 from Dr. Kimberly Winters for the girl’s basketball team at Vicksburg Junior High; and $50 from Outlets of Vicksburg for cheerleaders at Warren Central Junior High.

The high costs would have included removing the lead paint and bringing it up to environmental standards, dismantling the bridge and re-fabricating certain pieces and moving the pieces to downtown Vicksburg. “It would be cheaper to build a replicate,” Renacker said. The bridge, about 200 feet long and 15 feet wide, was built in 1868 in Dubuque, Iowa, as a means for trains to travel. It was dismantled and erected in Vicksburg in 1895 when there was no more use for it in Iowa. During that time, the bridge served as a throughway for horses and buggies to travel over the railroad tracks to the river. It has been closed to traffic for about 20 years. The portion of the site where the bridge would have gone will be left open in hopes of filling it with an alternative attraction, Renacker said. “There still may be some options down the road,” he said. “I’m going to leave the area open.” The bridge would have been part of the attraction that includes an interpretive center and the drydocked MV Mississippi IV in downtown Vicksburg. The interpretive center will include interactive

“Elsik High School has a faculty member whose job is to track incoming ninth-graders until they have successfully exited their schools,” he said. “This was an ah-ha moment for me as this would be a perfect way for us to increase our graduation rate

Gators drive for fifth straight win vs. WC By Ernest Bowker Once upon a time, in a rivalry far, far away, the Vicksburg Gators were routinely beaten and humiliated by their bigger, meaner crosstown cousins, the Warren Central Vikings. No matter how big a lead they had, no matter how hard they tried, there was nothing the Gators could do that was enough to convince everyone that they would ever stack up to the Vikings. Then, one magical November night, something remarkable happened — the Gators won. Then they won again. And they kept on winning until, heading into the 31st annual showdown with Warren Central tonight, it finally seems like they have the upper hand. Vicksburg has won four in a row in the series. It’s been a Cinderella-like turnaround

in a rivalry where Warren Central won 20 of the first 21 meetings. “I feel that the confidence is a positive thing for us. Right now, they’re trying to get back to where they were. It has to be mentally troublesome when you’re playing a team with more confidence,” said Vicksburg coach Alonzo Stevens, who is the only one of the four Gator head coaches who have faced WC to have a winning record against it. Stevens is 6-4

Ask any Warren Central player about the four-game losing streak to archrival Vicksburg and you get the same answer. It’s just a number. But how does that number impact the mental state of a team that has endured a very inconsistent season? It’s been a point of motivation for WC’s small senior class, which has yet to enjoy a win over its archrival. “All of these seniors haven’t beaten them in varsity and that’s something we’ve talked about a lot,” WC senior safety Bill McRight said. “It’s a goal for us.” Not much, if you ask Josh Morgan, who is in his second year as Warren Central’s head coach. Warren Central hosts Vicksburg tonight in the newly-named River City Classic. “Preparation is key here,” Morgan said. “It’s a new year and a new team. We’re going to get our kids ready to play. It’s the biggest game of the year for both of these teams.” Once, it was Vicksburg that struggled to make plays. It was Vicksburg that waited

for adversity to strike and an air of inevitability to descend like a fog. Now the rivalry has come full circle. In last year’s game, the Vikings dominated the first half defensively, stopping the Gators’ potent offense on three straight possessions. Beau Wallace scored on a quarterback keeper and WC took a 12-6 lead. But down the stretch, the Gators came up with big plays on both sides of the ball and took a 22-12 victory. The key problem for WC is another number, 19. That is the total amount of points scored in the four losses to Vicksburg. WC’s offense this season has been plagued by inconsistent play and no component can be singled out for blame. One game, the rushing attack breaks through and the passing game stalls. Another, the passing game heats up, but the run game is stymied. On deep routes, catches are made on some nights and big drops happen on others. The whys have bedeviled offensive coordinator Rob Morgan. See WC, Page B4.

Flashes eye elusive team championship at state meet By Jeff Byrd Ever since the Mississippi High School Activities Association sanctioned swimming as a state championship event, the St. Aloysius Flashes have found themselves in a big pool with plenty of big fish. With the continued growth of high school swimming in Mississippi, the MHSAA this year divided its state meet into two divisions — one for Class 5A and 6A schools, the other for Class 4A and lower. St. Al, a Class 1A school, falls into the latter category. The change has set up a potential state title run for

the boys team Saturday at the MHSAA state meet at Delta State University in Cleveland. Longtime Flashes coach Bruce Ebersole, who has coached plenty of individual state champions, said this is his team’s best chance to claim a team title. “We’ve still got to make the

swims,” Ebersole said. “But, I feel we’ve got a good chance to do it. When the MHSAA divided the schools into two divisions, we are now competing with schools closer to our size, instead of the schools like Biloxi, Tupelo and Madison Central.” A big reason for the Flashes’ optimism has been previous performances against their main competition, Madison-St. Joseph and St. Andrew’s. “Earlier this season, our boys won the meet at St. Joe and we also won the meet at St. Andrew’s,” Ebersole said. “We also won our own meet, a tri-meet with us, Vicksburg and Warren Central, and

lastly, the South State meet in Laurel.” A key this season has been the team’s improved depth. Eleven boys and six girls will compete for St. Al at the state meet. Among the boys are five seniors, including sprinter Morgan Stone. Stone has the top qualifying time in the 100-yard backstroke, and is seeded fourth in the 50-yard freestyle. He said the two-division format has given the Flashes some extra motivation. “It’s fair now,” Stone said. “We have a lot of older guys who have worked hard for this for several years. We’re very excited about this chance.”

St. Al’s other seniors are Chris Luke, Andy Bell, John Phillips and Winston Hayes. The team’s standout swimmer, however, is sophomore Wally Wibowo. Wibowo will be a medalist favorite in the 50- and 100yard freestyle and the team’s anchor in two freestyle relays. Wibowo’s 100-yard time at the South State meet two weeks ago was more than two seconds better than anyone else in the field for the state meet. “I felt like I peaked a bit when I was 14, but just recently, I broke through with a personal best in the 50 free and that was a good sign,” Wibowo said.

College sports NCAA approves scholarship reforms

INDIANAPOLIS — The scandalplagued NCAA is moving swiftly to clean up its image. On Thursday, the Division I Board of Directors approved a package of sweeping reforms that gives conferences the option of adding more money to scholarship offers, schools the opportunity to award scholarships for multiple years, imposes tougher academic standards on recruits and changes the summer basketball recruiting model. The board approved a measure allowing conferences to vote on providing up to $2,000 in spending money, or what the NCAA calls the full cost-of-attendance. The board also approved a measure that will give individual schools the authority to award scholarships on a multiple-year basis. Under the current model, those scholarships are renewed annually and can be revoked for any reason. If adopted, schools could guarantee scholarships for the player’s entire career and would be unable to revoke it based solely on athletic performance. Scholarships could still be pulled for reasons such as poor grades, academic misconduct or other forms of improper behavior.

College football Keenum tosses 9 TD passes as Houston rolls over Rice HOUSTON — Houston’s Case Keenum threw nine touchdown passes to set the Football Bowl Subdivision record for career TD tosses as the 18th-ranked Cougars overcame a slow start in a 73-34 win over Rice on a rain soaked Thursday night. Keenum threw an interception and had a fumble returned for a touchdown in the first quarter in heavy rain as Rice built a 17-7 lead. The rain subsided and Keenum and the Cougars got going after that. They outscored Rice 45-3 to take a 52-20 lead by early in the third quarter and cruised to the easy victory to remain undefeated. Keenum was 24-of-37 for 534 yards before he was replaced by backup Cotton Turner with eight minutes remaining. Patrick Edwards had seven receptions for 318 yards and five touchdowns for Houston (8-0, 4-0 Conference USA).

Key Matchup

Players to watch

Playoff possibilities

Warren Central secondary vs. Vicksburg wide receivers Vicksburg quarterback Cameron Cooksey (197 completions on 365 attempts for 2,821 yards, 34 TDs and 10 interceptions) has a number of big-time targets to spread the ball to, including A.J. Stamps (65 receptions, 1,109 yards, 16 touchdowns), Lamar Anthony (41 receptions, 837 yards, 11 touchdowns) and Clyde Kendrick (49 receptions, 566 yards). The WC secondary of Bill McRight, Curtis Ross, Trey Prentiss, Snoop Washington and Kourey Davis will have to tackle well in space and keep the yards after catch to a minimum.

Jeremy Hill, Vicksburg, right tackle Hill has been a solid rock for the Gators opposite left tackle Norman Price. Given Breckenridge, WC, fullback Breckenridge is WC’s Swiss Army knife, both as a lead blocker and as a playmaker in the passing game.

Both teams are still entertaining hopes of making the postseason as the fourth seed out of Region 2-6A. Here’s what will have to happen for either of the two teams to make it: Vicksburg is in if...

Best win in the series:

Vicksburg: 27-12 win in 2002. Vicksburg won for just the second time and ignited a 6-3 stretch against Warren Central. Warren Central: 35-23 win in 1996. The Vikings rallied from a 23-0 halftime deficit to pull off the victory.

It wins its last two games, against WC and Clinton. Nothing more. Can also get in despite a loss tonight, if Greenville-Weston beats Clinton and then the Gators beat Clinton next week. Warren Central is in if...

It wins its last two games and Clinton loses both (Clinton owns the tiebreaker over WC).


Cards stun Texas in a true fall classic St. Louis rallies twice to force Game 7 tonight ST. LOUIS (AP) — Hours after David Freese’s home run plunked down on the grass patch beyond the center field wall, long after the ballpark emptied, a message still burned bright on the scoreboard: “See you TOMORROW NIGHT for Game 7 of the World Series!” Whatever happens, whether the St. Louis Cardinals or Texas Rangers win, they’ll have a hard time topping Thursday night. “You had to be here to believe it,” St. Louis manager Tony La Russa said. In one of the greatest thrillers in baseball history, the Cardinals twice rallied when they were down to their last strike of the season. First, Freese saved them with a tworun triple in the ninth, then Lance Berkman delivered a tying single in the 10th. And when Freese led off the bottom of the 11th with his shot to beat Texas 10-9 and stomped on the plate, this Game 6 had already been stamped forever. “Turned out to be one for the ages,” said Daniel Descalso, who keyed a Cardinals comeback. A Series that was dismissed by many around the country before it began for lacking glamour teams suddenly has turned into must-see TV. And fans can savor the prospect of the first World Series to reach Game 7 since 2002, when the Angels beat the Giants. After it was over, La Russa wasn’t willing to announce his starter — many believe it will be ace Chris Carpenter on three days’ rest for only the second time in his career. “I learned what my body’s going to feel like, what my stuff’s going to be like,” Carpenter said. “You go out there and you make pitches. We’ll see what happens.” Matt Harrison is set to start for Texas. Derek Holland, who pitched shutout ball into the ninth inning in Game 4, could’ve been ready on regular rest after Wednesday’s rainout. Instead, Texas manager Ron Washington used him in relief. Home teams have won the last eight Game 7s in the World Series, a streak that started with the Cardinals beating the Milwaukee Brewers in 1982. Oh, and this: By far, the Cardinals have won the most Game 7s in Series history,

The St. Louis Cardinals’ David Freese connects for a game-winning home run in the 11th inning of Game 6 of the World Series on Thursday. The hit gave the Cardinals a 10-9 win and forced a decisive Game 7 tonight at Busch Stadium.

On TV 7 p.m. Fox Texas at St. Louis, World Series Game 7 going 7-3. “There is tomorrow, now, for us,” Cardinals star Albert Pujols said. A sloppy game that made for terrible viewing turned terrific in the late innings. Freese added to the lore created by the Carlton Fisk homer in Game 6 of the 1975 Series and Bill Buckner’s error in Game 6 of the 1986 Series. “A ridiculous game, weird game,” Texas second baseman Ian Kinsler said. “But I bet it was fun for the fans. We just came out on the wrong end.” To Freese, who was raised in the St. Louis area and was MVP of the NL championship series, it all reminded him of a game-ending home run Jim Edmonds hit in the 2004 playoffs. “Growing up or whatever, and you see stuff like that happen, those become memories,” said Freese, who immediately donated his bat and jersey to the Hall of Fame. Tremendous theater, that is, except for Texas. The Rang-

ers were that close to winning their first championship. “I understand it’s not over till you get that last out,” Washington said. “I was just sitting there praying we got that last out. We didn’t get it.” This was just the third time that a team one out from elimination in the World Series came back to win the game, according to STATS LLC. The New York Mets did it with Buckner’s mistake and wound up winning the championship. In 1911, the New York Giants rallied past the Philadelphia A’s in Game 5, but lost the next game. Freese’s tying triple off the wall and just over right fielder Nelson Cruz came on a 1-2 pitch from closer Neftali Feliz. In the 10th, after Josh Hamilton had homered to give Texas a two-run lead, Berkman’s two-strike, two-out single made it 9-all. “Initially I was like ‘Are you kidding me? My first AB off Feliz in this situation ever,”’ Freese said. “I just beared down, got a pitch to hit. Initially I thought I hit it pretty good, I thought (Cruz) was going to grab it, so just a lot of emotions on that one.” Berkman came through on a 2-2 pitch from Scott Feldman, finishing off a two-run rally in

the 10th. “I was one strike away,” Feldman said. “That pitch there, I didn’t quite get it in enough and he was able to get enough of the bat on it to knock it into center field.” Busch Stadium was still in frenzy when Freese opened the 11th with his homer off Mark Lowe. Freese thrust his arm in the air as he rounded first base, and the crowd was delirious. “Just an incredible feeling, seeing all my teammates at the dish waiting for me,” said Freese, whose shirt was torn off during the celebration. Texas trudged off the field as Freese circled the bases, having been so close to that elusive title. Much earlier, team president Nolan Ryan was high-fiving friends in the stands as Adrian Beltre and Cruz opened the seventh with home runs that helped Texas take a 7-4 lead. “I’m not going to lose any sleep over it,” Hamilton said. “We’re just going to do everything we can to prepare. Guys are already talking about it. We’re ready for Game 7. Shake it off and come back tomorrow. That’s just our mentality. But it goes both ways. Seems like they had that mentality. too.”

VHS Continued from Page B1. yards for the game’s only score as the Gators won 7-0. The following year, Vicksburg used a goal line stand in the final minute to win by the same score. • In 2009, Vicksburg’s only win of the season came over WC. The 13-7 overtime victory was played in a driving rainstorm in front of only a few hundred fans. • Last season, Warren Central dropped a sure touchdown pass, missed two field goals and an extra point, and came away empty on three trips deep into VHS territory in the fourth quarter. The miscues allowed Vicksburg to hang on for a 22-12 win. The winning streak has given the Gators something they never had room for in the early years of the series — swagger. “We’ve just got to keep winning so we can beat them 20 in a row like they beat us,” VHS offensive lineman Norman Price said with a smile. The Gators (3-6, 1-4 Region 2-6A) don’t need to keep winning just for hometown bragging rights, though. They

WC Continued from Page B1. “Consistency has been our problem all year,” Rob Morgan said. “Every game, we’ve done some things OK on offense. We’ll break a big run or have a good pass play, but then we’ll have a busted assignment on the exact same play where we gained 25 yards early in the game. If we could ever get where we could take that to heart, being consistent, we could be a good offensive team.” The good news is that Vicksburg’s defense has struggled to keep opponents in check and prevent the big play. In only one game, a 37-14 win over Lawrence County, has the Gator defense held its opponent under 21 points. WC will need its best offensive performance yet to keep pace with a Vicksburg offense that has averaged 28.3 points per game. The Vikings are young up front, starting three sophomores and one junior. While the line has shown flashes of excellence at times, a consistent pass rush with the front four and maintaining gap discipline against elusive running back Darius Youngblood will be key for WC’s hopes. If the Vikings can apply a healthy dollop of pressure to quarterback Cameron Cooksey with the front four, they can avoid having to blitz continually and expose their secondary to one-on-one matchups down the field with the dangerous Vicksburg trio of A.J. Stamps, Lamar Anthony and Clyde Kendrick. “You can’t sit back and let him pick you apart, but yet, you can’t blitz him and let him throw it up against single coverage,” Josh Morgan said. “We’re going to move some people around to try to give our defense a chance to pressure the quarterback, yet give ourselves the ability to cover their receivers. It’s going to be a fun game. Not only do they throw it just around, they throw it around and are very successful.” The rewards for winning will be big. The Vikings would still be alive for a playoff berth, needing another win and two losses by Clinton to earn a playoff berth for the first time in two seasons. But there’s something more tangible at stake. Besides the name change, the two teams will contend for a traveling trophy, an idea that Josh Morgan enjoys. The winning school will get the trophy for a year and it’s a prize the Vikings would love to keep at their school. “Trophies are fun for the kids, gives them something to play for,” Josh Morgan said. “A lot of pride will be contained in that trophy and I think it’ll add to a great rivalry here. It would mean a lot. It’s a great chance for us to get something positive going.”

can still make the playoffs by winning their last two games, against Warren Central and then Clinton next week. Vicksburg’s reward for all that work would be a firstround matchup with topranked Olive Branch. “We win this game, then we beat Clinton and we’re in the playoffs. We’ll be a No. 4 seed, but that’s better than no seed,” Vicksburg quarter-

back Cameron Cooksey said. Warren Central (1-8, 1-4) also is still alive, but needs help. The Vikings need to beat Vicksburg and Jim Hill in the season finale, then have Clinton lose its last two games — which would, ironically, turn the Vikings into big Vicksburg fans next Friday night. Slim as those chances are, it’s still a chance and

gives the Vikings something to play for. And that, Stevens said, should make a fun rivalry game even more enjoyable. “It always brings more to the table when it means something, because that’s how it should be,” Stevens said. “It’s a great game even with nothing on the line, but it’s even better when something’s on the table.”

The veteran journalist tells the syndicated TV news show “Extra” that he and his wife got money back from the Madoff estate and from the government for taxes they paid on stock they never had. Madoff never made investments but used money from new investors to pay previous ones. He pleaded guilty to fraud and is imprisoned. His wife says in a CBS “60 Minutes” interview that they tried to kill themselves after he confessed. King told “Extra” on Thursday that he thinks Ruth Madoff came forward to help her daughter-in-law’s new book about her husband, Mark Madoff.

Wayward pooch, owner reunited Petey the wayward Jack Russell terrier is home. After three months and hundreds of miles, the dog was reunited Thursday with owner Jim Arrighi in Erin, Tenn. Arrighi’s daughter, Tyanne Morrison, said Petey arrived in the care of a Michigan Humane Society volunteer who set out Wednesday from suburban Detroit. Morrison said her 73-year-old father “actually just cried” when he got the dog back. Arrighi left Petey in his backyard in July and the dog was gone when he returned home. A homeowner in Rochester Hills, about 20 miles north of Detroit, saw Petey last week in his backyard and took him to a Humane Society animal care center. Arrighi was identified as the owner when the dog was scanned for an implanted microchip.

Charlie Sheen’s new sitcom airing on FX in 2012 LOS ANGELES (AP) — Fired “Two and a Half Men” star Charlie Sheen will try to return to a winning TV sitcom next summer in FX’s new “Anger Management.” The cable channel said Thursday it has acquired the series loosely based on the 2003 Adam Sandler-Jack Nicholson movie of the same name, about a troubled therapist who disrupts his patients’ lives. FX ordered an initial 10 episodes of “Anger Management” starring Sheen, with production set to begin early next year. The series was announced in July by Lionsgate subsidiary Debmar-Mercury, which had shopped it to various broadcast and cable networks.

If the comedy c at c h e s o n with viewers, FX will pick up an additional 90 episodes that will air first on the channel and Charlie then in broadSheen cast syndication starting in fall 2014. The same model was used by Debmar-Mercury on the Ice Cube comedy series “Are We There Yet?” and on “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne” and “Meet the Browns,” all of which air on TBS. FX Networks head John Landgraf called “Anger Management” a “wonderful, hilarious vehicle for Charlie’s acting

talents.” Sheen’s new show will air on the same cable home as his old one: “Two and a Half Men” has been in returns on FX for more than a year. The actor was fired from CBS’ top-rated comedy by studio Warner Bros. Television because of his erratic personal life and public ridicule of the show’s producer. On the new series, he will be answering in part to himself. He will have a significant ownership stake in the series, FX said. Sheen noted in July that he will also gain “a certain amount of creative control.” Sheen’s new producer, Revolution Studios founder Joe Roth, has worked successfully with him before, and the

pair are expected to have cordial relations. Their feature films together include “Major League,” “Young Guns” and “Three Musketeers.” The producers and distributors would be a key selling point for the new series, TV analyst Bill Carroll of media buyer Katz media said in July. “I have to assume what you’re really buying is Joe Roth’s ability to produce and deliver a show with Charlie Sheen ... and Lionsgate’s track record and the ability of them and Debmar-Mercury to deliver shows. Whoever picks up the show is making a deal with them, not Sheen,” Carroll said.

Propofol expert to testify in Jackson doc’s defense LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jurors hearing the involuntary manslaughter case against Michael Jackson’s doctor will hear an alternate version today of what may have occurred in the singer’s bedroom in the hours before his death. Dr. Paul White, an expert in the anesthetic propofol, will finally lay out his rationale for the defense theory that Jackson somehow gave himself a fatal dose of the drug when his doctor left the room. White’s testimony will likely be vigorously challenged by prosecutors, who spent four weeks laying out their case that Dr. Conrad Murray is a greedy, inept and reckless doctor who was giving Jackson propofol as a sleep aid. But cross-examination of White will be delayed until Monday to give prosecutors more time to review a new analysis prepared by the defense based on recently-conducted tests on samples taken during Jackson’s autopsy. “This is the entire crux of the defense case,” Deputy District Attorney David Walgren said in arguing for a delay. The judge hearing the case, which ends its fifth week today, reluctantly agreed to delay the cross examination and said he is concerned about losing jurors.

Dr. Paul White, anesthesiologist and propofol expert, gives testimony during Dr. Conrad Murray’s involuntary manslaughter trial in Los Angeles on Thursday. Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor however noted that the panel of has remained rapt throughout the trial. “Every single member of that jury and all the alternates are paying extraordinary attention to every witness,” Pastor said. Murray has pleaded not guilty. White’s opinions will challenge those of the prosecution’s main expert, Dr. Steven

Peter Jackson trying to aid ex-death row inmate Echols WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — Director Peter Jackson said today that he was working with a high-profile former American death row inmate in hopes of getting the man a complete pardon. Jackson, best known for his “Lord of the Rings” trilogy, said he received an exemption to New Zealand law to allow Damien Echols to visit him. Echols was part of a group known as the West Memphis Th r e e wh o were convicted Damien of killing three Echols boys in the U.S. state of Arkansas in 1993. He and the other two men were released in August after pleading guilty to lesser charges and insist they are innocent. At a news conference Friday in which Jackson stood alongside New Zealand Prime Minister John Key at the North Island set where Jackson is

filming a two-part version of “The Hobbit,” the director said he’d gone through the same process open to everyone in applying for an exemption to immigration laws. “There are all sorts of emotive headlines about Damien Echols, killer, coming to New Zealand, but the reality is that Damien Echols is an innocent man who has spent 18 years incarcerated in a tiny cell,” Jackson said. The director said he and partner Fran Walsh had worked for seven or eight years to try and help free Echols. “He’s come here to work with us on a couple of things,” Jackson said. “We’re doing investigative work, we’re doing forensic work ... with the purpose of getting a complete pardon.” Echols is one of the highestprofile death row inmates to be released in the U.S. Three HBO documentaries about his case brought national attention and sparked the involvement of several celebrities, including Pearl Jam front man Eddie Vedder.

Shafer, who testified that the only scenario he believes explains Jackson’s death is that Murray placed Jackson on an IV drip and left the room after he thought the singer was sleeping peacefully. Murray told police he left Jackson’s bedside, but claims he only gave the singer a small dose of propofol the morning of Jackson’s death. He said he left the room and returned after two minutes to find the

pop superstar unresponsive. Murray’s defense attorneys have repeatedly claimed that Jackson somehow gave himself the fatal dose, but it will be up to White to explain how that would be possible. Defense attorney J. Michael Flanagan said that the new models White will show jurors on Friday will offer different simulations about the drugs propofol and sedative lorazepam. They are based on a new computer program and updated test results. Flanagan did not reveal what conclusions White drew from the new models, or whether they would change his testimony. White is a retired researcher and professor who performed clinical studies of propofol for years before it was approved for usage by the Food and Drug Administration in 1989. He said he was initially reluctant to become involved in the case, but after reading through more than a dozen expert reports, he couldn’t figure out how others came to the conclusion that Murray would have had to leave Jackson on a propofol IV drip for the singer to have died with the anesthetic still coursing through his body.

Uncle’s ashes ‘temporarily’ housed in mom’s mausoleum Dear Abby: My 87-year-old mother recently discovered that the mausoleum site she had reserved for herself next to my father’s grave — and paid for when he died — was occupied by my uncle’s ashes and headstone. Mom had moved away 20 years ago and had not visited the cemetery in all that time. My cousin’s explanation, when confronted by my tearful mom, was that it was a “temporary solution” as the mausoleum was full at the time of my uncle’s death. They were planning to move him. Apparently, it has taken 14 years for them to get around to it. Mom had to send a notarized letter to the cemetery asking that my uncle’s remains be



removed. My cousins, who are wealthy and successful people, saved $800 by using my mother’s prepaid site. Should Mom charge them rent? — Bewildered in California Dear Bewildered: I don’t think your mother should ask your cousins for “rent,” but I do think your mother should contact the owners of the cemetery and ask what they plan to do to compensate her for her distress. Frankly, I don’t

understand how they could have allowed your uncle’s ashes to be placed in her reserved site. The ball will then be in their court. Dear Abby: My daughter “Joy” is 19. She attended a small school with 40 students in her grade. She never had a boyfriend — or even a date — until the first week of college a year ago. The boy was a high school classmate of hers. They became engaged before he went off to boot camp. My husband and I are extremely concerned because of Joy’s age and inexperience. Her fiance is OK, but we feel they are not for each other. We’re positive she could find someone more compatible, but who’s going to approach her

with that ring on her finger? I How do we make Joy see that she’s too young and inexperienced to make such an important decision? — Mama Knows Better in Ohio Dear Mama Knows Better: You can’t. As well-meaning a mother as you are, if you try to tell your daughter what you have in mind you will only make her defensive. Instead, encourage her to wait until her fiance returns home and she either has her college degree or is close to it before they tie the knot. Dear Abby: It’s almost Halloween and parents need to teach their children that if a house does not have its porch light on, it means the resident will not be handing out candy

Dull sense of taste takes away reader’s life’s pleasure Dear Doctor K: I’ve recently noticed a dulling of my sense of taste. What’s worse, my ability to taste sweetness seems to be the most affected. Is it possible that I’ve damaged the part of my tongue that detects sweetness? Dear Reader: We don’t give much thought to our sense of taste until it isn’t there. I’m sure your recent taste troubles have made you realize how much you rely on this sense. You’ve actually touched on a medical myth about our sense of taste. It’s a common misconception that the taste buds for each type of taste are grouped together in a particular part of the tongue — sweet taste in one part, sour taste in another, and so on. That’s not true. To understand why, here’s how we taste things. Our tongues can identify five tastes: sweet, sour, bitter,

salty and savory (also called umami). Savory can be a tough taste to describe, but chicken broth is a good example. We have five different types of taste buds, one for each of the five tastes. The five different taste buds don’t look very different, but they are “wired” differently: They each send a different signal to the brain. These five different types of taste buds are scattered around the tongue. So damage to one area of your tongue would not explain why you would lose an entire category of taste.

A reduced ability to taste is fairly common; I see it occasionally in my patients. It has many causes. Aging reduces the ability to taste in some people. Infections of the nose, throat and sinuses can too, until they go away or are cured. That’s mainly because smell contributes to taste. Have you ever noticed how, when you get a bad cold, things don’t taste as good? Nothing’s wrong with your taste buds. It’s just your sense of smell that is temporarily reduced. If none of the less serious explanations can be applied, it would be a red flag telling me to consider more serious diagnoses. Diabetes can injure the nerves from taste buds to the brain. So can liver disease, kidney disease, Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. A bad injury to the head, or surgery around the ear, can

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — It’s nice of you to do a favor for someone, but make sure you don’t do so in a manner that leaves the person feeling tremendously obligated to you. Let him or her know that there are no strings attached. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — An acquaintance who isn’t particularly popular with your peer group could use some reassurance.

TWEEN 12 & 20

BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: I’m a 15-year-old girl, and I have lots of friends, both male and female. My best male friend is Kyle. We have been close friends ever since we met in fifth grade. We have never been on a “real” date together. Oh yes, we’ve had a snack together at a restaurant, but that’s it. Kyle and I can discuss everything. He is intelligent, humorous and very loyal. When we have a class together, we often study together. He has helped me immensely in several classes, especially history and algebra. Kyle started dating a girl about a month ago. She attends our school and is quite popular. Kyle likes this girl and has told me that she really likes him. Kyle is a very good-looking guy and has a super personality, so it’s no surprise that popular girls go after him, but this is the first one he really likes. Kyle has told this girl that he and I are good friends, but not romantically involved. This must bother her because last week she talked to me at school about my friendship with him. I told her that Kyle and I have been nothing more than very good friends for the past six years. And then she started asking me questions like, “Do you have the hots for Kyle?”“Did Kyle and you ever kiss?” and “What do you two do when you are alone?” This really shocked

me, and I just walked away from her without giving her an answer. Last night she called me and told me that as long as she was interested in Kyle, she would appreciate it if I stopped spending time with him. I told her I didn’t want to discuss Kyle with her, and I hung up. Now I don’t know what to do. Should I stop being friends with Kyle? Should I tell Kyle what his girlfriend has said to me, or should I just do nothing and pretend the girlfriend didn’t contact me? — Nameless, Lake Charles, La. Nameless: This girl has chosen to manufacture a reason for jealousy out of thin air. This is her problem, not yours. If she confronts you again, tell her clearly and directly that you and Kyle are long-time friends, period. That should be sufficient. If this upsets her, she needs to bring it up with Kyle, not you. Dating tends to bring out people’s insecurities. Learning how to control one’s jealousy — especially irrational jealousy — might take a long time. But obviously, for her, the learning process is under way. Never end the friendship shared by Kyle and you. Good friendships can last forever! • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service.

It sounds like this change in your sense of taste has lasted more than a day or so. If this is true, talk with your doctor about it. While there may be a simple explanation, it’s important to get it checked out. As anyone with taste problems will tell you, it’s not something we should take for granted. Eating is one of life’s necessities. That’s why nature made it one of life’s great pleasures.
