Is that a plane?

Pre-game fly-over surprises some after prank By Pamela Hitchins Planes flew over Warren Central High School’s Viking Stadium Friday night — but this time it was planned. The fly-over — before the start of the River City Classic, a high-rivalry game between the Vicksburg Gators

and Warren Central Vikings — came two days after the drop of thousands of “Gator Bait” leaflets at the stadium from a low-flying plane. “We organized this one,” said Vicksburg Warren School District Superintendent Dr. Elizabeth Swinford from the sidelines Friday night. “It was announced before the game,

before the playing of the National Anthem.” Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace said his phone lit up with calls from concerned parents and residents during and immediately after the flyover. Deputies directing traffic and See Plane, Page A7.

By Pamela Hitchins At least $2,500 is being offered for information that will help Vicksburg police arrest the man who raped a 55-year-old disabled woman in the city Wednesday morning. “Crime Stoppers has offered $2,500, but the amount of the reward is not limited to that,” said police Lt. Bobby Stewart. “The police department will probably kick in more money for information leading to the arrest of the suspect.” The rape was reported around 7 a.m. in the 2200 block of Drummond Street.

One arraigned in arson at dry cleaners A Vicksburg man was arraigned this week in Warren County Circuit Court on arson charges, following a secret indictment issued by the July panel of the grand jury. Harvey Gillespie, 59, 103 Newitt Vick Drive, is accused of causing the Sept. 19, 2010, fire at Turning Heads dry cleaners, 1514 Cherry St. Gillespie had not been arrested but evidence was presented to the grand jury, which in turn handed down the indictment. Indictments are not made public until after a suspect has been arraigned. District Attorney Ricky Smith said there was a delay in serving Gillespie with

court report from court records

notice to appear in court, but after he was given notice he appeared Tuesday, as required, before Circuit Judge Isadore Patrick. Gillespie has been released on a $2,500 bond, Smith said. His trial was set for March 5. Also in Warren County Circuit Court for the week ending Friday: • Calvin L. Brewer, 26, 328 Woodham Road, pleaded guilty to possession of precursor substances and was sentenced by Patrick to the Ninth Circuit Court Drug Court Program for a period not to exceed five years, plus

a $1,000 fine and $1,297.50 in costs and fees. Brewer was arrested Oct. 9, 2009. • William A. Crossman, 27, 6314 Long Island Court, Atlanta, Ga., pleaded guilty to possession of a controlled substance and was sentenced by Patrick to three years of probation, plus a $5,000 fine and $672.50 in costs and fees. Crossman was arrested Sept. 6, 2010. • Michael D. Davis, 34, 2503 Franklin St., Apt. A, pleaded guilty to sale of marijuana and was sentenced by Patrick to one year in prison, plus $322.50 in costs. Davis was arrested June 29. Patrick also found Davis guilty of violating probation and sentenced him to eight years

in prison with credit for time served, plus $1,822.50 in fines and fees associated with his initial sentencing for an arrest June 19, 2009, for possession of cocaine. The prison terms are to be served consecutively. • Willie Peoples Jr., 35, 901 Wabash Ave., pleaded guilty to retaliation of a witness and was sentenced by Circuit Judge M. James Chaney to time served followed by 18 months of probation, plus a $1,000 fine and $322.50 in costs. Peoples, who was arrested April 14, had also been charged with rape at the same time. That charge was not prosecuted.

Senators push appeal of $80M grant loss BATON ROUGE (AP) — Gov. Bobby Jindal’s administration should appeal a federal government decision to rescind an $80 million grant to expand broadband Internet connections to rural and poor areas of Louisiana, lawmakers

friend from jail. This week, the video was posted on YouTube with a link on the Cottonmouth political blog. Hood campaign manager Jonathan Compretta said, “Rather than worry about how a public record became public, Steve Simpson should explain to...battered women... why he used his position as public safety commissioner to get a friend out of jail.” Hood and Simpson will face each other on Nov. 8 ballots.

appeal? They can’t deny that we need it.” Jindal’s Commissioner of Administration Paul Rainwater said he’ll talk to the Commerce Department to determine if the state can attempt to regain the money.

Race to the Top Funds would aid Mississippi pre-K education From otherMississippi newspapers: • NE Miss. Daily Journal, Tupelo: Mississippi’s application for $50 million in early childhood education funds through the federal Race to the Top Program could open the door to substantially enhanced pre-k education progress statewide through an array of existing programs. The $50 million proposal was sent to the Department of Education recently, and an answer is expected before the end of 2011. The $50 million request is the maximum allowed in a category of states in which Mississippi is placed. It would be paid over four years, and it cannot be used to start new programs. The proposal, which was developed

by the advisory council that consists of educators and professionals in business outside education, plus the governor’s education adviser, is directly responsive to President Barack Obama’s and the Department of Education’s emphases on early childhood learning. Mississippi is the only state in the South that does not have a state-funded pre-kindergarten, and prospects for winning approval of a state-funded universal program are economically dim, even though it remains a valid choice. Every licensed child care provider in Mississippi would be required to participate in the Mississippi Child Care Quality Ratings system if the state’s application is successful. That detailed system measures those centers and the quality of education they provide. Par-

ticipation is currently optional, and a mandatory system would significantly ratchet up the overall standards. The ranking system is based on multiple standards, and providers are rated on a scale from 1 to 5. The initiative allowing parents of children in centers with a high-quality rating to participate in a college savings program would tie into the state’s existing MPACT college savings plan, a successful venture, and it could provide matching funds for some low-income participants. Mississippi’s application calls for cross-training of medical professionals to help them “read” children’s developmental progression and to speak with parents about things they should be doing to help promote development.

Action needed on state’s nursing shortage The Clarion-Ledger, Jackson: Mississippi hasn’t escaped the nation’s nursing shortage, recent statistics show, underscoring the need for action. A June report by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing showed employers and staffing agencies posted more than 121,000 new job ads for registered nurses in May, an increase of 46 percent from a year earlier. Yet, not enough nurses are being trained. And, as Ricki Garrett, executive director of the Mississippi Nurses Association notes, “as the 76 million baby boomers age and as we see more people because of chronic health condi-

tions needing health care, the shortage is going to get significantly worse.” The problem is not a lack of people wanting to go into nursing, but a shortage in qualified instructors. According to AACN, almost twothirds of nursing schools noted faculty shortages as a reason for not accepting all qualified applicants into their programs. The Mississippi Nurses Association’s Saving Nurses Saves Lives campaign led to the 2007 Legislature giving a $12,000 pay raise for faculty nurses. But that may not be enough to meet the needs. The average salary difference

between a nurse practitioner and an associate professor in nursing is more than $11,000. Compounding this finding is the fact that a doctor shortage also plagues the state, especially in rural areas, and nurse practitioners are increasingly filling the gap. In recent years, the Legislature has been pumping money into the Rural Physician Scholars Program that rewards with scholarships medical students who have agreed to practice in rural areas that need doctors. It’s a good program and wise investment.

The credit-card bill woke me briefly, but soon I slipped right back into ennui. Life is too short to sweat such details.

Getting back to normal life daydreaming of French grandeur FISHTRAP HOLLOW, Miss. — The first week home, I blamed it on jet lag. The second week home, I blamed it on the change of seasons. I’m running out of excuses for my lazy ways. I haven’t hit a lick at a stick since returning from France and all its enchantment. I need to clean up brush piles and sloppy paragraphs, but, instead, I keep looking at old photographs and sighing deep, romantic sighs. The credit-card bill woke me briefly, but soon I slipped right back into ennui. Life is too short to sweat such details. Politics bore me. World events are as repetitious as CNN trailers. College football isn’t going my way. Friends are tired of hearing how on the superior French interstate systems cars do not pass on the right and other cultural trivia. My new tractor is in the shop. In a desperate attempt to resuscitate myself, I drove to Jackson, Tenn., to see RHETA my friend Cornelia. An gRIMSLEY octogenarian, Cornelia has more energy and passion than most teenagers. She gardens, entertains, counsels women in the local jail and studies Shakespeare. Once she gave a luncheon three days after being bitten by a copperhead. I had a wonderful time, but came home, dialed Edith Piaff on the iPod and made onion soup. Cornelia merely reminded me how beautiful and energetic French women are. French women don’t get fat; they don’t even sweat. Cornelia could pass as French. I went to see the folks who are used to my post-Paris blues and whiney ways. They sweetly listened to my rhapsodic pitch for a foreign land for about five minutes, and then they began their routine reports about local events and prescription costs. They live, after all, in Alabama and the real world. Nobody, it seems, wants to be transported magically to France by my oh-so recent recollections. Nobody, but nobody, is standing by the side of the road thumbing a ride, hoping to join my magical mystery tour. Would that there was an AA group for recovering Francophiles. I would attend and admit to an addiction to overwhelming beauty and confounding small appliances. I, at least, would have an audience that had been to the mountaintop of cultural nirvana. Empathetic souls would tell me to call if I felt myself again succumbing, needing a fix of lavender fields or sneaking a meringue. I would be with My People. Call me silly, I’ve been called worse. Call me unpatriotic, but remember no less than Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson shared my opinion. Franklin was mourned by the French when he died; they loved his intelligence and wit, and thought his abiding interest in beautiful women quite natural. But enough is enough. I think I’ll spend today putting my obsession to bed. For the last time, I’ll go through the stack of images: LaLa the neighbor dog in Provence, the Vaison street market, sunset over the grape harvest. Next time you hear from me I’ll be back in the U.S., body and mind, feet on the ground, reporting on Herman Cain science and Wall Street greed. •


State should brace itself for defense spending cuts The Greenwood Commonwealth: When it comes to cutting federal spending, almost every pot of money under consideration for shrinking has a constituency that says “not me.” One of the more vocal and powerful recipients of federal dollars is the military. It not only has defense contractors lobbying in its corner, but also every state with a military installation or defense-related manufacturer. With more than 60,000 people working on military bases or for defense contractors in Mississippi, this state is particularly sensitive to talks in Washington about cuts to defense. If the federal budget is going to be

trimmed anywhere, however, defense has to be one of the prime targets. Not only does it consume a large slice of discretionary spending, but it’s also one of the less effective ways to stimulate job creation. According to University of Massachusetts at Amherst research, a billion dollars spent on defense translates into 11,600 jobs. That same amount, however, spent on education creates 29,100 jobs; on health care, 19,600; on clean energy, more than 17,000. In fact, tax cuts will generate 28 percent more jobs than will defense spending of an equivalent amount, the study found.

Mississippi, with its heavy dependence on military expenditures, might not like to hear that, but those are the types of comparisons Congress and its special deficit-reduction commission will be looking at as they try to figure out how to pare $1.5 trillion in spending without pushing the nation’s unemployment rate back into the double digits. According to the terms of the debtceiling compromise painstakingly forged earlier this year, Congress is committed to cut at least $350 billion in defense spending over the next 10 years. It could be as much as $600 billion. Mississippi had better prepare for it.

Royal rules 2 wounded in terror attack redone to at U.S. Embassy in Bosnia give girls equal shot LONDON (AP) — If Will and Kate’s first child is a girl, it’s now clear that she’ll probably become queen one day — and not even getting a little brother can mess that up. The Commonwealth countries agreed Friday to change centuries-old rules of succession that put sons on the throne ahead of any older sisters. So that hypothetical daughter of Prince William and Kate Middleton — now known as Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge — would have a prime place in history: the first princess to beat out any younger brothers and accede to the throne. Had these rules been in place in the 1500s, Henry VIII would have just been a rather large historical footnote. The move is a baby step: Before taking effect, the changes still must be approved by the legislatures of the 16 nations where Queen Elizabeth II is head of state. Still, the agreement, which was reached at a meeting of Commonwealth nations in Perth, Australia, represents a triumph over outdated, sexist practices. Nations including Sweden, Belgium, the Netherlands and Norway have already taken similiar steps. Will and Kate’s lavish April wedding renewed a decadeslong debate over succession. Middleton told a well-wisher in Canada this summer that she hopes to start a family. William has said the same. Once their honeymoon was over, baby talk started, adding urgency to the dialogue, although officials insist that talk of a pregnancy is premature. The new rules would only apply to future heirs and would have no impact on the current line of succession. William is second in line to the throne after his father, Prince Charles, who is the queen’s firstborn child. Charles’ sister, Anne, is lower in the line of succession than her younger brothers Andrew and Edward by virtue of their male gender. Charles had only sons, William and Prince Harry, so the issue of gender was never raised.

SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina — A man armed with hand grenades and an automatic weapon opened fire outside the U.S. Embassy in Bosnia Friday in what authorities called a terrorist attack. A policeman and the gunman were wounded, but the embassy said none of its employees was hurt. Sarajevo Mayor Alija Behmen said the gunman “got off a tram with a Kalashnikov and started shooting at the American Embassy.” Witnesses told Bosnian television that the man urged pedestrians to move away, saying he was targeting only the embassy. He wore a beard and was dressed in an outfit with short pants that reveal his ankles — typical for followers of the conservative Wahhabi branch of Islam. State Prosecutor Dubravko Campara identified the shooter as Mevlid Jasarevic, from Novi Pazar, the administrative capital of the southern Serbian region of Sandzak, who was tried in Austria for robbery in 2005.

New citizens mark Liberty’s 125th NEW YORK — Scores of immigrants waved tiny flags after taking the oath of U.S. citizenship at the foot of the Statue of Liberty on Friday, 125 years after the iconic American symbol and beacon welcoming visitors and immigrants was

The new Americans, 125 immigrants from 46 countries, pledged to renounce foreign power, then posed for photos with their citizenship certificates. A similar ceremony was held at the Vicksburg National Military Park a week ago.

Anthrax vaccine trials for kids put on hold WASHINGTON — Should the anthrax vaccine be tested in children? It will be a while

longer before the government decides. An advisory board said Friday that ethical issues need to be resolved — but if that can be accomplished the vaccine can be tested in children to be sure it’s safe and to learn the proper dose in case it’s needed in a terrorist attack. Because of concerns that terrorists might use the potentially deadly bacteria, the government has stockpiled the vaccine. It has been widely tested on adults but never on children.

smart money Q: I have read several letters that were written to you about receiving Social Security from a former husband. I was married nearly 40 years when he decided to have another fling. This time I decided it was not worth trying to save the marriage. I took your advice from a letter BRUCE awhile back and got in touch with the Social Security office. I set up an appointment to talk to someone about it. First question out of her mouth: Is he dead? I told her no. She said he would have to be deceased. I have also read articles stating you could receive benefits if he was living. Now, can you please tell me, what are the regulations? I don’t seem to be able to get the information straight. — J.H., via e-mail A: I don’t know with whom you spoke or how you phrased your question. I assume it was your only former husband,


since you were married almost four decades. That being the case, you will first be obliged to file under your own Social Security account. After that is completed, if a filing under his account number will yield you a greater benefit, then you are allowed to do so. The only condition is that you be married more than 10 years, and that requirement is more than satisfied. You may have worded your question differently from the way I put it, but I believe the way it should be asked is, “I wish to file or I already filed under Social Security, and I have my former husband’s account number, etc. I would like to have it researched as to whether my benefit would be increased filing under his number.” The fact that she said he has to be deceased is clearly an error. Once again, the way you phrased the question may have resulted in this answer. I would go back and talk to someone else and be very clear with the question you are asking. •

Stocks sober up after big rally By The Associated Press A quiet day on Wall Street ended Friday with major stock indexes little changed after a big rally the day before. The Dow Jones industrial average closed out its fifth week of gains, its longest winning streak since January. The Dow edged up 23 points, or 0.2 percent, to finish at 12,231.11. Stock indexes jumped more than 3 percent Thursday after European leaders unveiled a plan to expand their regional bailout fund and take other steps to contain the debt crisis in Greece. Optimism ebbed on Friday as analysts raised questions about the plan, which left out many key details about how the fund would work. European markets mostly fell, and the euro declined against the dollar. “It’s a kind of sobering-up after a day of partying,” said Jerry Webman, chief economist with Oppenheimer Funds in New York. “We got back to what’s more of a square position, closer to where we want to be, and now we’re going to take a couple of deep breaths and re-assess what this really means.” There are still plenty of obstacles to overcome before

Muffin wasn’t $16, after all WASHINGTON (AP) — Remember the $16 muffin, a sign of government spending out of control? It turns out all the criticism was half-baked. The Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General is apologizing for erroneously concluding that a hotel charged the government $16 apiece for breakfast muffins. The muffins were actually part of a modified continental breakfast priced at $16.80 and consisting of items such as pastries, fruit, coffee, tea and juice.

the crisis is resolved. One troubling sign: Borrowing costs for Italy and Spain increased, signaling that traders remain worried about their finances. The S&P 500 rose less than a point to 1,285.09. The Nasdaq composite fell 1.48, or 0.1 percent, to 2,737.15. In less than four weeks, the Dow has risen 14.8 percent from its 2011 low, reached on Oct. 3. The S&P has gained 17 percent. However, the Dow remains 4.5 percent below this year’s high, reached on April 29. The S&P is 5.8 percent below its high. The Dow surged 3.6 percent for the week; the S&P and Nasdaq each gained 3.8 percent. Both indexes are on pace to have their best month since January 1987. Thursday’s stock rally led to a sell-off in Treasurys, which traders hold to protect their money when other investments are falling. Demand for Treasurys increased sharply Friday, pushing the yield on the 10-year Treasury down to 2.33 percent from 2.39 percent late Thursday. Markets have been roiled by fears about the impact of Europe’s debt crisis. Greece couldn’t afford to repay its lenders, and banks holding Greek bonds faced losses.

assistance of local builder and pilot Dan Fordice, said Swinford. Fordice arranged a similar display just prior to the St. Aloysius-Bogue Chitto game at Farrell Stadium-Balzi Field on Grove Street. “We were just a little off there, though, with it being so dark,” he said. “We missed the stadium by about half a mile.” Fordice said a formation training clinic is being held this weekend at the Vicksburg-Tallulah Regional Airport, and he provided both fly-overs free to give the pilots some extra practice. The planes flew over the stadium five feet away from each other, at up to 130 mph. When asked how low they flew, Fordice said, “We did

not get below 1,000 feet” — the minimum altitude required by the Federal Aviation Administration. FAA officials are continuing to investigate Wednesday’s prank, in which a private plane is believed to have flown as low as 100 or 200 feet while dropping the leaflets. Violations of FAA regulations can result in a pilot having his license suspended or revoked and, in some cases, a civil penalty. “We have had fly-overs before,” Swinford said. “We never notify law enforcement. But in the aftermath of what happened Wednesday, I can see how people would get a little nervous.” •

Chase, Wells Fargo ditch debit card fees NEW YORK (AP) — Chase and Wells Fargo are joining the list of banks that won’t be charging customers to use their debit cards, as the backlash over Bank of America’s planned $5 monthly fee continues. The retail banking arm of JPMorgan Chase & Co. will stop charging $3-per-month fees for using debit cards when its current pilot in Wisconsin and Georgia is completed in November, a source with knowledge of the bank’s plans told The Associated Press. The individual asked not to be identified because the bank has not officially announced the program will not go forward. Chase, which operates in 23 states, began its test in

February. And it’s not alone in rethinking its actions. Wells Fargo & Co. began a similar pilot in five states on Oct. 14, testing a flat $3 fee for using debit for purchases. On Friday it also announced that it is cancelling its test program. Other banks already have more widespread fee policies. SunTrust Banks charges $5 a month for debit cards used to make purchases, and Regions Financial Corp. charges $4. But it was Bank of America Corp.’s plan to start charging $5 per month that lit the issue on fire. The Charlotte, N.C.based bank last month said it will begin the fee in 2012. Banks say the fees are to recoup revenue lost to new regulations.

Trial Stewart. “But I understand the complexity of the case and the need for extra time.” The two men are charged with attacking Cupps outside a Pemberton Square Boulevard motel and kidnapping him in his rental car before dumping his body in Bessemer. Cupps was beaten and

strangled. The Louisiana Department of Public Safety uses about 160 inmate workers, known as trusties, for various jobs at the State Police compound. Wedgeworth and Pierce had been working as groundskeepers there and were able to get keys to a van and drive

off, authorities said. Wedgeworth was serving time for armed robbery, and Pierce for attempted seconddegree murder. Before they escaped, Wedgeworth was set to be released in 2023 and Pierce in 2024. Authorities said the men

were caught after crashing a pickup in Memphis, Tenn. Police said that before their capture, the men tied up a county park worker in Jackson, Tenn., and stole a government truck with markings for the Madison County, Tenn., parks department.

The victim told police she was able to exit the residence and summon a neighbor for help. She was taken to River Region Medical Center, where she was treated and released, a hospital spokesman said Friday.

Williams described the suspect as a black man about 5-feet, 11-inches tall and weighing about 160 pounds, with a slender build and facial hair, possibly a goatee. He was last seen wearing a black hooded type jacket and dark pants. Police went door to door, seeking information, in residential areas near the victim’s home Thursday during

the day and evening and Friday morning, Stewart said. “There have been no other rapes reported in the neighborhood, so we do believe it was an isolated case,” Stewart said. Anyone with information is urged to call Vicksburg police at 601-636-2511 or Central Mississippi Crime Stoppers at 888-827-4637.

At least two rape cases in Vicksburg remain unsolved, Stewart said. Both involved elderly victims, 91 and 86 years old, who lived in the same neighborhood off Halls Ferry Road, north of Waterways Experiment Station, and took place in 2005 and 2007.

Election Continued from Page A1. ing with health care, then we can meet the mandate that is spelled out in the health care reform passed by Congress in 2009. Smith: Hard decisions will have to be made by Mississippi in the next few years. Currently there are roughly 600,000 people in this state on Medicaid. Next year that number will increase to 1,000,000. We have to understand that this increase is federally mandated. In Mississippi 25 cents out of every dollar goes to Medicaid. Without a doubt certain services and programs will have to be cut unless we raise

taxes. I’m against raising taxes. Washington created this problem with “Obamacare.” Washington needs to help solve it. 2. State lawmakers passed a $5.5 billion budget for the current fiscal year. In it, elementary and secondary education were funded at about the same amount as last year. State income taxes rates remained level, as did state employees’ salaries. Do you agree or disagree with the way funds were arranged? Flaggs: No, I disagree with the way the funding was

arranged for elementary and secondary education in the previous years. In those years the State of Mississippi did not keep its commitment to meeting the education needs of the state by not adequately funding education. Smith: I personally feel that the Mississippi budget is in line. I do not think that any cuts should be made to education. Education is the key to our state’s economic future. Industry will not be attracted to our state if we have an uneducated work force. If anything, we should increase spending in education and make sure it’s going

where it is needed, the classroom and not to overpaid administrators. One thing I must say, we need to move from an entitlement society to an opportunity society. 3. Elections in Mississippi’s 122 House districts and 54 Senate districts will take place along current district lines, as directed by a federal court order when joint committees in each chamber failed to agree on new maps that would comply with population shifts measured in the 2010 census. What must the Legislature do to ensure maps are

drawn this year? Flaggs: The Mississippi Legislature should set redistricting for the House and Senate as a priority and have it approved within the first days of the 2012 legislative session. We should always legislate rather than litigate. Smith: The Mississippi Legislature doesn’t have much choice. Either the legislators get the job done and run in districts created by their fellow members or they allow the federal courts to do so. Mississippi needs to decide its own destiny without depending on the federal courts.

Boys who view porn can’t escape consequences Q: My neighbor’s son has been caught viewing pornography on their computer, and he almost has her convinced that it’s just another form of entertainment. How can I convince them that this is a serious issue? Jim: This is one of the most critical problems facing families, because pornography is so easily accessible. Every day at Focus on the Family, we hear from people torn apart by porn. I’d encourage your neighbor and her son to seek help from a FOCUS ON counTHE FAMILY selor or pastor. There is a wide range of sociological evidence pointing to the destructive FOCUS ON influTHE FAMILY ence of porn. Time magazine said: “In recent years, a number of psychologists and sociologists have joined the chorus of religious and political opponents in warning about the impact of pervasive pornography. They argue that porn is transforming sexuality and relationships — for the worse.” A 2003 study by the Matrimonial Lawyers Association found that 56 percent of divorce cases involve one partner with an obsessive interest in porn. Marriage may be the last thing on your neighbor’s son’s mind at this point, but he’s fooling himself if he thinks he’ll be able to ditch his habit. Q: My husband lies about little things. He’ll tell me that he had to work late when he went to see a movie with friends. He’s otherwise moral. Juli: Perhaps he’s behaving this way to avoid conflict or asserting independence. Your husband may feel he doesn’t have the freedom to make decisions like going out with his friends. He may have learned as a child to respond to feeling controlled by being “passiveaggressive.” Rather than call and explain to you he wants to go out to a movie, he avoids the conversation and potential conflict. Although the “issues” at hand are small, they represent larger problems in your marriage that need to be discussed. •

Pastor of Word Church named bishop By Manivanh Chanprasith

A Vicksburg pastor has been promoted to a regional leadership position. Dr. Oscar L. Davis, 47, who lives in Natchez but is pastor of The Word Church of Vicksburg, has been named regional bishop by the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church and the International Fellowship of Inde-

pendent Christian Churches and Ministries, both based in Alabama. Davis will help lead about 4,000 churches in Mississippi, Arkansas and Louisiana and will help advise their pastors. “He’s a hard-working man who strives to do the work,” said the most Rev. Dr. Henry Roberts II, archbishop of the IFICCM and pastor of The Word of Life Church in Whistler, Ala.

Davis founded The Word, an interdenominational church, a year ago. It began as a Bible class in a small conference room at the Vicksburg Convention Center with about six participants, but has grown to a congregation of about 205 members who meet at the church on Grove Street. “I built that church from the ground up,” said Davis, also founder of Greater Faith Tabernacle in Natchez.

Davis said he has been a preacher for nearly 25 years. His late father, Bennie Davis, was also a preacher. Davis received in 2001 an honorary doctorate of divinity degree from Grace International Seminary in Dallas. He operates First Class Limo Service in Natchez. The Word Church will mark its one-year anniversary with events on Nov. 14.

Cardinal Velasio De Paolis, papal delegate for the Legion of Christ

Catholic order crumbles in wake of sex abuse By The Associated Press VATICAN CITY — When Pope Benedict XVI took over the disgraced Legion of Christ religious order last year, expectations were high that heads would roll over one of the greatest scandals of the 20th century Roman Catholic Church. One year later, none of the Legion’s superiors has been held to account for facilitating the crimes of late founder Rev. Marcial Maciel, a drug addict who sexually abused his seminarians, fathered three children and created a cult-like movement within the church that damaged some of its members spiritually and emotionally. An Associated Press tally shows that disillusioned members are leaving the movement in droves as they lose faith that the Vatican will push through the changes needed. The collapse of the order, once one of the most influential in the church, has broader implications for Cathol-

One year later, none of the Legion of Christ’s superiors has been held to account for facilitating the crimes of late founder Rev. Marcial Maciel, a drug addict who sexually abused his seminarians, fathered three children and created a cult-like movement within the church that damaged some of its members spiritually and emotionally. icism, which is shedding members in some places because the hierarchy covered up widespread sexual abuse by priests. In an exclusive interview, the man tapped by Benedict to turn the Legion around insisted that the pope tasked him only with guiding the Legion and helping rewrite its norms — not “decapitating” its leadership or avenging wrongdoing. Cardinal Velasio De Paolis ruled out any further investigation into the crimes of Maciel, who as a favorite of Pope John Paul II had been held up as a living saint despite

well-founded allegations — later proven — that he was a pedophile. “I don’t see what good would be served” by further inquiry into a coverup, the Italian cardinal said. “Rather, we would run the risk of finding ourselves in an intrigue with no end. Because these are things that are too private for me to go investigating.” The Holy See knew of the pedophile accusations, yet for years ignored his victims — as well as complaints about his cult-like sect — because he attracted men and money to the priesthood. As it is,

John Paul’s legacy was marred by his close association with Maciel; Benedict’s legacy, already tarnished by the sex abuse scandal, may well rest in part on his action concerning Maciel, who died in 2008. Critics, including some Vatican officials, contend De Paolis has an obligation to uncover the truth and take more radical action, given that the Vatican itself found Maciel created a twisted, abusive order to cater to his double life. The Vatican also determined that for the Legion to survive it must be “purified” of the influence of Maciel since its very structure and culture had been so contaminated by his obsession with obedience and secrecy. Members were forbidden from criticizing their superiors, were isolated from their families, and told how to do everything from praying to eating an orange. In the absence of radical change, See Legion, Page B4.

Psalm34:4 • The times that will most strengthen and enrich your life are those times when you go barehanded, armed with only the Spirit of God against the red lion of hell and prevail. Like Samson, who killed a lion with his bare hands, then ate honey out of its carcass (see Judges 14:6-9). • Whatever is hounding and threatening your life right now, you must hold fast to the Word of God that promises deliverance and hope, power and strength, wisdom and guidance. Look beyond the physical evidence to the spiritual promise of God. Problems are opportunities for God’s power to be manifest in your life. • Devotion written by Dr. Adrian Rogers in conjunction with Love Worth Finding Ministries. Web site:

The Rev. Richard Gill, a prominent U.S. Legion priest until he left the congregation in 2010 after 29 years, has openly criticized De Paolis’ efforts, particularly his refusal to remove compromised superiors, saying “dismissals will be needed to restore some measure of confidence in the Legion.” Claudia Madero left the movement in August after living like a nun for 35 years,

citing the refusal of her Mexican superiors and De Paolis to embrace change. Benedict, however, gave De Paolis an unofficial vote of confidence last month when he kept him on as his Legion envoy while letting the 76-year-old Italian retire as head of the Vatican’s economics office. Benedict’s spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, declined to say if the pope

Legion Continued from Page B1. the movement has seen a dramatic decline in membership since the scandal was revealed in 2009. An estimated 70 of the 890 Legion priests and upwards of a third of the movement’s 900 consecrated women have left or are taking time away to ponder their future. Seminarians have fled — 232 last year alone, an unusually high 16 percent dropout rate for one year. New recruits

are expected to number fewer than 100 this year, half what they averaged before the scandal. The AP compiled the figures based on interviews with more than a dozen current and former members. In August, about 20 current and former Legion priests met secretly for a week in Cordoba, Spain, to discuss forming an association to support Legion priests who

leave the order, participants told the AP. The move could encourage more to leave. And earlier this month, the six editors of the Legion-affiliated Catholic news agency Zenit quit en masse, following the resignation of Zenit’s founder. He had cited differences in editorial vision and a loss of trust with the Legion’s superiors over the way they covered up Maciel’s crimes.

thought De Paolis’ mandate should be changed given the exodus, saying the cardinal speaks for himself. Legion spokesman the Rev. Andreas Schoeggl, meanwhile, gave De Paolis a thumbs up, saying his work had been “great,” with all Legion priests helping rewrite the order’s constitutions — a shift from the past when decisions were made only at the top.

screen to put the Gators back in front by 12 points. “We had all of the momentum on our side when we got that safety. We had our chances offensively. We just couldn’t convert,” WC coach Josh Morgan said. Stamps’ third touchdown catch of the night was a big blow, but not a fatal one for the Vikings. They got back within a single score when Aaron Stamps pushed his way into the end zone for a 3-yard touchdown run to make it 28-23 with 3:44 remaining. And then, as so often happens in this rivalry, things took a dramatic turn. WC elected to kick the ball deep and rely on its defense to stop Vicksburg’s potent

In Friday night’s River City Classic, one offense managed to do just enough. The other did not. Vicksburg’s offense made the plays when it needed them and Warren Central’s struggled mightily in a 28-23 VHS victory at Viking Stadium. When the Viking defense got a third-quarter safety and Curtis Ross scored to cap the ensuing drive and cut the lead to 21-16, the excitement on the WC bench was palpable. “We had all of the momentum on our side when we got that safety,” WC coach Josh Morgan said. “We had our chances offensively. We just couldn’t convert. We were handcuffed offensively. We ran the ball, but not consistently. We couldn’t put together the long drives we needed.” Despite getting a solid game out of Aaron Stamps, who rushed 22 times for 180 yards and two touchdowns, the passing game withered. Senior WC quarterback Chase Ladd completed only 2 of 10 passes for six yards and one interception. That pick gave Vicksburg a short field that it cashed in on. Senior tailbck Darius Youngblood scored on a 2-yard run to give Vicksburg a 21-7 advantage. In the first half, the Vikings were hit with seven penalties and managed only one first down. "We shot ourselves in the foot with penalties,” senior tight end Patrick Varnado said. “In the second half, we finally got it together, but it was too late. This is very

Gators make it five straight

Vicksburg defeats WC to take home inaugural River City Classic trophy By Ernest Bowker Like most of the recent editions of the Vicksburg-Warren Central rivalry, Friday night’s game came down to the final frantic moments. And, like most of the recent editions, it had the same result. A.J. Stamps caught three touchdown passes, Darius Youngblood rushed for 155 yards and a score, and Vicksburg claimed its fifth consecutive win over Warren Central, 28-23. Since losing 22 of the first 24 meetings in the rivalry, Vicksburg has won five of the last six. Four of the last five games have been decided by a touchdown or less. The eventual winning score on Friday night came

Vicksburg 28, Warren Central 23 Records: VHS (4-6, 2-4 in REgion 2-6A); WC (1-9, 1-5) The skinny: Gators beat WC for fifth straight time to keep playoff hopes alive Up next: VHS hosts Clinton; WC hosts Jim Hill midway through the fourth quarter, and Vicksburg fended off a last-ditch drive by WC to hang on. “It was a great game. Every year we’ve played them it’s been a great game,” said Vicksburg quarterback Cameron Cooksey, who completed 15 of 27 passes for 185 yards, with three touchdowns and one interception. “It seems like it doesn’t matter what the record is between us. It’s always a

good game. We come ready to play and we want it on both sides.” The win also kept Vicksburg’s playoff hopes alive. The Gators (4-6, 2-4 Region 2-6A) can reach the postseason for the first time since 2008 by beating Clinton in next week’s season finale. Warren Central (1-9, 1-5), meanwhile, was eliminated from the race and will miss the playoffs for the second straight year. It’ll wrap up the season next week at home against Jim Hill. WC twice cut a two-touchdown deficit to five against Vicksburg, but couldn’t get closer. After using a safety and a 10-yard TD run by Curtis Ross to make it 21-16 in the third quarter, Cooksey tossed a 12-yard TD pass to Stamps on a wide receiver

Flashes bitten by Bogue Chitto

Eagles can’t finish at Prentiss Christian

By Jeff Byrd

The little mistakes are costing Porters Chapel dearly. Despite 180 rushing yards and three touchdowns from senior running back Kawayne Gaston, the Eagles lost their regular season finale, 24-20, at Prentiss Christian on Friday night. It was the second loss in a row for the Eagles, who have already locked up a playoff berth. The Eagles (5-6, 2-3 District 4-A) led as late as two minutes left, 20-17, but the defense allowed the Saints (5-5, 3-2) to score the winning TD with 1:12 remaining. “It was a good, close ballgame. We controlled the ball, but we couldn’t make a big stop,” PCA coach Wade Patrick said. “It’s a matter of the small mistakes biting us and we’re not good enough to over-

St. Aloysius had its best offensive game since its last win, but two fourth-quarter turnovers stopped the Flashes’ rally against Bogue Chitto. The visiting Bobcats got two touchdown passes and two runs from Brock Roberts to pace a 39-21 win Friday night at Balzli Field. Bogue Chitto improved to 6-2 in Region 4-1A play to stay in third place and is now 8-2 overall. St. Al (1-9, 1-7) ends its season next week at Mount Olive. The loss spoiled an excellent game from Flashes senior Carlton Campbell in his final game at home. Campbell rushed for 100 yards and a touchdown and

caught four passes for 67 yards. Still, it wasn’t enough. “We finally got out there and tried to play,” Campbell said. “We ran more of a two tight-end set and that gave us more blocking up front. We passed the ball a little more and Carlisle (Koestler) did great. The one interception there late wasn’t his fault.” The pick, though, did end St. Al’s hopes of a victory for Campbell and his three fellow seniors, Scott Johnston, Robert Arledge and Zane Russell. Trailing 33-21 early in the fourth quarter, the Flashes defense finally stopped the Bobcat offense, which had scored on five straight possessions. A 23-yard punt gave St. Al the ball at it own 48 See Flashes, Page C3.

College sports West Virginia bolts Big East for Big 12 The Big 12 on Friday invited West Virginia to join the league next season, giving the conference a replacement for Missouri and dealing another setback to the beleaguered Big East. The league announced the move in a news release that also said it expects to have 10 schools for the 2012-13 season, listing West Virginia but not Missouri. Missouri has been rumored for several weeks to be close to a move to the Southeastern Conference, but has not yet made an official announcement. Late Thursday night, the SEC inadvertently posted on its website that Missouri was joining the league. The conference said no agreement has been reached with the school, but it was yet another sign that it’s just a matter of time that the Tigers will follow Texas A&M and leave the Big 12 for the SEC. The web page, dated an unspecified “Monday,” even included details on Missouri-SEC connections, the university’s athletic history and natural geographic fit. “Culturally, Missouri is as well known for its barbecue, country music, history and rich tradition as the majority of the current states of the SEC,” the announcement said, then noted a detail Missouri is particularly proud of. “Missouri is one of only 35 public U.S. universities invited to membership in the prestigious Association of American Universities (AAU).” SEC spokesman Charles Bloom posted on Twitter that a Web vendor made a mistake and that the league and Missouri do not have an agreement. The announcement was pulled from the site. Meanwhile, West Virginia’s departure dealt another blow to the Big East. Of the eight original members for the conference’s football league, only Rutgers remains. The Big East is trying to reconfigure itself as a 12-team football league and has been courting six schools, including Boise State, to join. Now it will need seven to get to 12. While the Big 12’s statement said West Virginia will begin competing in the 2012-13 athletic season, Big East Commissioner John Marinatto said that the Mountaineers will be staying in the Big East for two more seasons.

Cardinals win 11th World Series title

The associated press

St. Louis Cardinals relief pitcher Jason Motte reacts after the Cardinals defeated the Texas Rangers, 6-2, to win the World Series Friday.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Pushed to the brink, the St. Louis Cardinals saved themselves. A frantic rush to reach the postseason on the final day. A nifty pair of comebacks in the playoffs. Two desperate rallies in Game 6. Turns out these Cardinals were merely gearing up for a gigantic celebration. The Cardinals won a remarkable World Series they weren’t even supposed to reach, beating the Texas Rangers 6-2 in Game 7 on Friday night with another key hit by hometown star David Freese and six gutty innings from Chris Carpenter. A day after an epic Game 6 that saw them twice within one strike of elimination before winning 10-9 in the 11th inning, the Cardinals captured their 11th World Series crown. And following a whole fall on the edge, including a surge from 101⁄2 games down in the wild-card race, Tony La Russa’s team didn’t dare mess

with Texas, or any more drama in baseball’s first World Series Game 7 since the Angels beat the Giants in 2002. Freese, the MVP of the NLCS, was the Series MVP as well. “This whole ride, this team deserves this. This organization is top notch. ... This is definitely a dream come true,” Freese said. “This is why you keep battling.” Freese’s two-run double tied it in the first and goodluck charm Allen Craig hit a go-ahead homer in the third. Picked by La Russa earlier in the day to start on short rest, Carpenter and the tireless St. Louis bullpen closed it out. “I wish everybody in the country could get to know these guys,” Craig said. “It’s unbelievable. I’m just glad to be a part of it.” No Rally Squirrel needed on this night, either. Fireworks and confetti rang out at Busch Stadium when Jason Motte retired David Murphy on a fly ball to end it.

The Cardinals were loose from the very beginning. “We were all in the clubhouse and we were a loose bunch of guys,” Motte said. “We were in there hanging out, dancing around, had music playing. We were all like that’s the way we win and that’s how we play the best and we came out we were able to do it today.” This marked the ninth straight time the home team had won Game 7 in the World Series. The wild-card Cardinals held that advantage over the AL West champions because the NL won the All-Star game — Texas could blame that on their own pitcher, C.J. Wilson, who took the loss in July. The Rangers, meanwhile, will spend the whole winter wondering how it all got away. Texas might dwell on it forever, in fact, at least until Nolan Ryan & Co. can reverse a World Series slide that started with last year’s five-game wipeout against San Francisco.

Texas had not lost consecutive games since last August. These two defeats at Busch Stadium cost manager Ron Washington and the Rangers a chance to win their first title in the franchise’s 51-year history. A year full of inspiring rallies and epic collapses was encapsulated in Game 6. Freese was the star, with a tying triple in the ninth and a winning home run in the 11th. His two RBIs in the clincher gave him a postseason record 21. The Cardinals won their first championship since 2006, and gave La Russa his third World Series title. They got there by beating Philadelphia in the first round of the NL playoffs, capped by Carpenter outdueling Roy Halladay 1-0 in the deciding Game 5, and then topping Milwaukee in the NL championship series. Albert Pujols went 0-for-2, walked and was hit by a pitch in what could have been his last game with the Cardinals.

Gators Continued from Page C1. offense. The tactic worked, and the Vikings got the ball back at their own 28 with 1:47 left on the clock. Aaron Stamps — who finished with 180 yards and two touchdowns on 22 carries — ran for 10 yards on first down, but then the Vikings stalled. Quarterback Chase Ladd missed on a deep pass


Continued from Page C1. with 8:55 to play. Koestler, who threw for a season high 144 yards on 11-of-18 passing, hit two first down passes to the Bogue Chitto 21. On second down, he tried to hit an out route but the pass was picked off by Dennis Rodgers at the 10-yard line and returned 32 yards. Bogue Chitto got a 38-yard run by Brandon Wells to set up Roberts’ second TD pass of the night, a 9-yard toss to Germie Martin to ice the game at 39-21 with 4:40 left. St. Al moved 61 yards on its final drive, but Campbell was stripped of the ball at the Bogue Chitto 1 to prevent a closing score. St. Al opened the game with an impressive 64-yard drive in nine plays. Koestler hit Zane Russell for 22-yard TD pass. It was Russell’s first score of the season.

Cathedral 55, Hinds AHS 34 Hinds AHS returned two interceptions of Cathedral quarterback Caleb Upton for touchdowns but Upton rallied Cathedral with four touchdown passes over the next quarter and a half for the blowout win. Cathedral remained in a first-place tie in Region 4-1A. Hinds AHS slips to 2-8, 2-6 in region play. Shaquille Stamps and Jarvis Thomas had interception return for scores that gave Hinds a 22-12 lead.

on second down, a short pass on third down was stopped for a 1-yard gain, and Ladd’s fourth-down pass was knocked away from the receiver. Moments later, the Gators hoisted the brand-new River City Classic trophy for the first time and celebrated yet another victory over WC.

“It feels good, but this ain’t the one we want,” said A.J. Stamps, who caught seven passes for 104 yards . “We ‘re trying to get to the playoffs. We want that state trophy, not this little one. This is just a step. A step to the next step.”

disappointing for us.” On the other side of the coin, the Gators made the plays when it counted. Senior quarterback Cameron Cooksey was under heavy duress all night, but still managed to complete 15 of 27 passes for 185 yards and three touchdowns. The difference was the play of Vicksburg’s ground game, which ground down the clock and moved the chains when the Gators needed it. Youngblood had a season-high 31 carries for 155 yards and a touchdown. “We told them we were going to run it down their throat. We practiced it all week,” Youngblood said. “The middle was wide open.”

Stuart wants museum in hometown Country music star Marty Stuart is tossing around plans for a museum in Philadelphia to house his memorabilia. Stuart, a Philadelphia native, and his wife have talked with the Mississippi Country Music Commission about the project. The center would be constructed with private, local and state funds. No cost estimate has been released. Marty Stuart Stuart’s proposal calls for the center to be constructed in the style of a cabin or house on Stuart’s property in northern Neshoba County about 15 miles from downtown Philadelphia. Stuart envisions a combination of a museum, theater and classroom.

Actresses exiting ‘Spider-Man’ stage There’s about to be some turnover at Broadway’s “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.” Producers said Friday that original stars Jennifer Damiano and T.V. Carpio will end their run with the Broadway show next month. Damiano, who plays Mary Jane, will be replaced by Rebecca Faulkenberry, who was in “Rock of Ages.” Carpio, who plays Arachne, will be replaced by Christina Sajous, who starred in “Baby, It’s You!” Reeve Carney, who plays Peter Parker, and Patrick Page, who is the Green Goblin, are sticking with the $75 million show, which after a diffcult birth, has become a top Broadway earner. Carpio’s last performance will be Nov. 13. Damiano’s will be Nov. 6.

Hacking suspect had history of stalking A Florida man charged with hacking into the e-mail accounts of Christina Aguilera and Scarlett Johansson may have stalked a woman for the past 12 years, according to an unsealed search warrant obtained by The Associated Press on Friday. The warrant served on a hard drive belonging to Christopher Chaney, 35, showed that it was used to conduct Internet searches as recently as last November for a Connecticut woman who had complained to police that Chaney had been chatting with her online since she was 13 years old. Chaney has been indicted in California on 26 counts, including unauthorized computer access and wiretapping, and faces up to 121 years in prison if convicted. He is scheduled to appear in a Los Angeles courtroom Tuesday.

Suspect swipes sandwich, flees on forklift A pilfered Reuben sandwich and a stolen forklift have a Pittsburgh man in quite a pickle. Ross Township police say 38-year-old Sean Faulkner ordered the sandwich from a bar, then ran out without paying and climbed on a forklift for his getaway. Faulkner is accused of stealing the forklift from a construction site on Sunday, then driving it two miles to Sieb’s Pub. Bartender Karie Donatelli said Faulkner ordered the sandwich then bolted after his food arrived. Investigators said Faulkner was still in the parking lot when officers arrived. Police said he couldn’t get the forklift to go into reverse.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — An anesthesia expert testifying for the doctor charged in Michael Jackson’s death told jurors Friday he believes the pop superstar gave himself a fatal injection of an anesthetic. Dr. Paul White said the selfinjection theory is the only one supported by the physician’s statement to police and by evidence found at Jackson’s rented mansion. White said he saw no evidence supporting the prosecution theory that Jackson’s doctor was infusing the singer with propofol using an IV. The researcher said the evidence recovered in Jackson’s bedroom was more consistent with the singer receiving the powerful anesthetic through an injection. A prosecution expert had told jurors he believed Jackson’s doctor used an IV drip of propofol and said that was the only way to explain the high levels in the singer’s body. White noted there were no IV bags or lines found in Jack-

son’s bedroom that showed propofol residue. He also said the propofol found in Jackson’s urine did not support the IV theory. Jackson’s doctor, Conrad Murray, has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter. White’s testimony was expected to end Murray’s defense case after 16 witnesses. It likely will be vigorously challenged by prosecutors, who spent four

weeks laying out their case that Murray is a greedy, inept and reckless doctor who was giving Jackson propofol as a sleep aid. Propofol is not intended as a sleep aid and, medical groups

Editor, agent tapped to lead NEA’s book arm NEW YORK (AP) — Longtime book agent and editor Ira Silverberg has been named director of literature for the National Endowment for the Arts. The NEA announced Friday that Silverberg will begin the job Dec. 5. His responsibilities will include overseeing the awarding of grants and fellowships to people and institutions and coordinating the NEA’s nationwide reading programs.

Cross-examination of White has been delayed until Monday to give prosecutors more time to review a new analysis prepared by the defense based on recently conducted tests of samples taken during Jackson’s autopsy. The judge hearing the case, which ends its fifth week Friday, reluctantly agreed to delay the cross examination and said he is concerned about losing jurors. Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor, however, noted the panel 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.

Bride’s plan for adults-only reception irks older sister Dear Abby: My younger sister is getting married next month and has requested that no kids be brought to the reception. My “kids” are teenagers and I feel that at least children of the immediate family should be allowed to attend. Incidentally, Sis and her fiance have a little girl and boy who will serve as a flower girl and ring bearer. The children will participate in the wedding party introductions, then will be carted off. Finally, she wants my 15-year-old to baby-sit the young cousins. Because we don’t think it’s right, we have decided that we will attend the wedding ceremony but not the reception. It is not my intention not to share her moment, but I’m afraid my teenagers won’t understand why they can’t celebrate their aunt’s special day. Am I making too much of this? — RSVP Undecided in North Carolina Dear Undecided: Your sister’s reason for excluding “children” could be budgetary — or fear that young chil-



dren could be disruptive. By saying “no children” she is trying to be fair to all the parents. However, if she wants your daughter to baby-sit, she should make the arrangements with your daughter — including offering to pay her for her time — especially if there will be more children than the flower girl and ring bearer in her care. Dear Abby: My boyfriend, “Adam,” and I have been together for three years, and hopefully will be for many more to come. One of the core values he feels strongly about is not drinking, and not associating with others when they drink. I have never gotten drunk, but I do have one or two drinks a month with friends. When I mentioned it


BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION If tomorrow is your birthday: In the year ahead, you are likely to find yourself in a prolonged cycle where you’ll be able to further your material aspirations with relative ease. However, once you start a new endeavor, you must stick with it until it is completed. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Sometimes your ability to make a fast calculation can be a real asset. Don’t dismiss what comes easily, because your initial perceptions are apt to be right on the money. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Something opportune could develop where your personal interests are concerned. Be prepared to act immediately; he who hesitates is lost. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Don’t treat a creative idea lightly just because it suddenly flashed in your head from out of nowhere. Sometimes the brainstorms are the ones that have the best prospects. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — It is persistence that is the real secret to success. Thus, don’t throw in the towel prematurely if things don’t get rolling your way immediately. Give time for events to reverse themselves. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Your role could be one of a catalyst, bringing everyone together for a common cause. In fact, you are likely to be quite lucky yourself in terms of joint efforts. Aries (March 21-April 19) — If you think you have a solution for something that has given you fits, give it a try. Even if it isn’t the perfect answer, chances are it’ll prove you’re on the right track. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Don’t hesitate to play a more prominent role in your involvements with friends, if you’re asked to do so. What you do now may set the stage for something important later. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Even if you don’t have as much control over an important development as you’d like, you still should be able to put your imprint on things that are important. Don’t give up so easily. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Don’t be intimidated by size or clout, because the grander or larger something is, the easier it is to get your teeth into. Bigger projects are just more to chew. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — You’re smart to fear known knowns, but it’s what you can’t see that should be the most dreaded. Don’t let your guard down. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Optimism enhances your chances for success. Adopting a positive attitude will considerably improve conditions in general, allowing you to operate at maximum potential. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — If someone with a good track record talks to you about a good investment or business deal, listen attentively. You might want to look into it to see if it has real merit.

TWEEN 12 & 20

BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: I am in a children’s home as a ward of the state because I couldn’t stand all the fighting that was going on between my parents and my brothers and sisters. I’m 15 and have been here for nine months. I go home and visit on weekends, and things seem to be better. My social worker has told me that I could return home full time on a trial basis, or I could remain here. I love my family very much, but while at this home I have acquired a boyfriend. It’s my first one, and I would hate to leave him. He said if we part now that we will never get back together. I’m really torn. Please don’t print my city or state. — Nameless. Nameless: After much thought, I think you should return home to your family. It’s important for a family to be together, if they can work in harmony. You need your family, and your family needs you. See if your parents can arrange for you to meet with your boyfriend occasionally. Leaving him doesn’t mean that you will never see one another again. Dr. Wallace: My parents were divorced about two years ago. Though I love my father very much, I admit that most of the blame belonged to him. I was sort of glad to see him leave. Now I wish he was back. He’s better than Mom’s new husband. Eddie is a lazy bum. Mom has a full-time job; he rarrely works. All he does is sit at home watching sports and sucking on a beer bottle. He has a filthy vocabulary and treats Mom terribly. Last week, I told my mother that when I graduate in 2012, I’m going to leave home if Eddie is still around. All she said was, “I’ll be sorry to see you leave.” Now I’ve backed myself into a corner. I said I’d leave, but I have nowhere to go. — Angie, Evansville, Ind. Angie: A lot of things can happen in a year. Wait until you graduate before you make a decision about leaving home. A mother’s love is far greater than a daughter’s “ultimatum.” I’m sure Mom will be happy to have you remain at home after you graduate, if that is your choice. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service. E-mail him at rwallace@Copley News Service.

to Adam, he became extremely frustrated. Now things have become rocky between us. I feel like I have done something devastatingly wrong, even though I know I haven’t. I can’t promise Adam I’ll never drink again, but I respect his values enough to keep to the couple of drinks per month and no more. I feel he doesn’t trust me now. What should I do? I love Adam and want to make things right, but I won’t make a promise I know I can’t keep. — Hardly a Drunk in Seattle Dear Hardly a Drunk: I wish you had told me why your boyfriend is so against being involved with someone who has an occasional drink. Were his parents alcoholics? Is he in recovery? Was he upset because it took three years for you to tell him you have a drink or two a month with your friends, and that’s why he “doesn’t trust you”? While you and I might think your boyfriend’s attitude is unreasonable, it’s clear to me that if you want him, you will

have to take “the pledge.” And if you can’t do that, Adam is not The One for you. Dear Abby: My husband and I own a business in a rural community and have two additional employees. We all work together five days a week. It’s a small, intimate office and nothing is private. Would it be considered unprofessional if my husband or I greeted each other with a kiss (a peck) when arriving or leaving the office in front of our staff but when no clients are present? I think it’s OK, but he doesn’t. — Showing Affection in Missouri Dear Showing: I think it’s OK, too. But if your husband isn’t comfortable with demonstrations of affection in front of the staff, respect HIS feelings on the matter and do not force it.

Losing weight might help in preventing kidney stones Harvard Medical School staff members answer questions for Dr. Komaraoff on Saturdays. •

Q: I’m a 30-year-old man. I’ve gained weight since college, and I have read that being overweight can lead to kidney stones. A friend who just had kidney stones told me that passing them was incredibly painful. I’d like to lose weight, but until I do, is there anything I can do to prevent kidney stones? A: When it comes to illnesses, there are worse things than kidney stones. But when it comes to pain, the passing of a stone is near the top of the list. Kidney stones are excruciatingly painful when they travel through the ureters, the tubes that connect the kidneys to the bladder. Kidney stones are hard, chemical and mineral deposits. Tiny stones may pass out of the body in urine without causing any discomfort. In fact, about nine out of 10 kidney stones will pass on their own. However, a deposit can grow to be the size of a pea, marble or larger. These large stones may irritate the narrow ureter, causing pain and bleeding. Stones greater than onefifth of an inch might have difficulty passing through the narrow ureter. Even worse, a stone may become lodged in the ureter, blocking the passage of urine and threatening to damage the kidney itself. Your focus on prevention is a good one because once you get kidney stones, the chance of getting them again is high. Here are a few pointers: • Keep your fluid intake up. Kidney stones form when certain chemicals and minerals concentrate in the urine and form crystals. Drink plenty of fluids — water is the safest bet. This will increase the amount of water in your urine, so those mineral concentrations don’t get too high. • Eat calcium-rich foods. Calcium is a major component in about 85 percent of kidney stones, so it seems logical to avoid calcium in your diet, not seek it out. But most stones are composed of calcium combined with a substance called oxalate. If there is plenty of calcium in your diet, the calcium binds to oxalate in your intestines, keeping oxalate out of your bloodstream — and urine. Less oxalate in the urine means fewer opportunities for calcium oxalate to form — and fewer kidney stones. • Reconsider calcium supplements. This recommendation pertains mostly to women, who are often encouraged to take daily calcium supplements to promote bone strength, but the advice applies to men as well. Results from the Harvard-based Nurses’ Health Study showed that postmenopausal women who took calcium supplements were 20 percent more likely to develop

kidney stones. • Moderate your sodium intake. • Moderate your protein intake. It can increase calcium and oxalate excretion, raising the probability of stone formation. High-protein diets may also reduce the levels of stoneinhibiting substances in the urine.

‘Super broccoli’

Organic doesn’t mean it’s bulletproof By The Associated Press

Kelly Clarkson

Clarkson is ‘Stronger’ on new CD By Ryan Pearson AP entertainment writer LOS ANGELES — It may have taken some time, but Kelly Clarkson seems to finally be releasing an album without any drama on the side. “Everything is good, everything is happy,” she said, laughing brightly during a recent interview to promote “Stronger,” released this week. It’s a different scenario than her last two albums: She went through public disputes with legendary executive and mogul Clive Davis over her third album and with OneRepublic singer-songwriter Ryan Tedder after her last album was released. They were typical of the bold stances she’s taken that proved her to be more than the passive, malleable product of a hit TV competition, establishing her as an artist instead of just a voice. “I’ve been a fighter since I started walking,” she said, adding casually and genuinely a line that could be lifted from one of her inspirational songs: “We get one life. You want to make sure that you’re living it how you want to live it.” Since Clarkson became the first “American Idol” a decade ago, she’s established herself as one of pop’s most formidable, and successful singers. She’s sold over 20 million albums worldwide and landed seven singles in the Billboard Hot 100 top 10, including “Breakaway,” “My Life Would Suck Without You,” “Miss Independent,” and perhaps her biggest hit, “Since U Been Gone.” Clarkson has maintained creative control of her music and career since her “Idol” days, and has written on all of her albums. But her determination to chart her own course has not come without a few battles. In 2007, Davis became concerned over the less commercial sound of Clarkson’s third album, “My December,” which Clarkson revealed publicly after rumors of a rift; Clarkson later mended fences and called the tension overblown. Then in 2009, Clarkson called out Tedder for musical similarities between “Already Gone,” which he wrote for Clarkson, and Beyonce’s “Halo,” which he also wrote. Clarkson calls her new collection of 13 songs “the easiest record that I’ve made with my label.” But she makes clear that’s See Clarkson, Page D3.

Beneforte “super broccoli” sits on a shelf at a grocery store in London.

British scientists sprout souped-up veggie Food boasts triple dose of nutrient believed to prevent heart disease By Maria Cheng AP medical writer LONDON — Popeye might want to consider switching to broccoli. British scientists have unveiled a new breed of the vegetable that experts say packs a big nutritional punch. The new broccoli was specially grown to contain two to three times the normal amount of glucoraphanin, a nutrient believed to help ward off heart disease. “Vegetables are a medicine cabinet already,” said Richard Mithen, who led the team of scientists at the Institute for Food Research in Norwich, England, that developed the new broccoli. “When you eat this broccoli ... you get a reduction in cholesterol in your blood stream,” he told Associated Press Television. An AP reporter who tasted the new broccoli found it to be the same as the regular broccoli. Scientists, however, said it should taste slightly sweeter because it contains less sulphur. Glucoraphanin works by breaking fat down in the body, preventing it from clogging the arteries. It is only found in broccoli in signifi-

cant amounts. ‘Vegetables To create the vegetable, sold as are a medicine “super broccoli,” cabinet already,’ Mithen and colleagues cross-bred said Richard a traditional British Mithen, who broccoli with a wild, bitter Sicilian variled the team of scientists at the ety that has no flowInstitute for Food Research in ery head, and a big dose of glucorapha- Norwich, England, that developed nin. After 14 years, the new broccoli. ‘When you the enhanced hybrid was produced, which eat this broccoli ... you get a has been granted reduction in cholesterol in your a patent by European authorities. No blood stream.’ genetic modification was used. It’s been on sale as rolled out across the U.S. Beneforte in select stores The super vegetable is in California and Texas for part of an increasing tenthe last year, and hit Britdency among producers to ish shelves this month. Later inject extra nutrients into this fall, the broccoli will be foods, ranging from cal-

cium-enriched orange juice to fortified sugary cereals and milk with added omega 3 fatty acids. In Britain, the new broccoli is sold as part of a line of vegetables that includes mushrooms with extra vitamin D, and tomatoes and potatoes with added selenium. Not enough data exists to know if anyone could overdose on glucoraphanin, but vitamin D and selenium in very high quantities can be toxic. Mithen and colleagues are conducting human trials comparing the heart health of people eating the super broccoli to those who eat regular broccoli or no broccoli. They plan to submit the data to the European Food Safety Agency next year so they can claim in advertisements the broccoli has proven health benefits. “There’s a lot of circumstantial evidence that points to (glucoraphanin and related compounds) as the most important preventive agents for (heart attacks) and certain cancers, so it’s a reasonable thing to do,” said Lars Ove Dragsted, a professor in the department of See Broccoli, Page D3.

WASHINGTON — Shoppers nervous about foodborne illnesses may turn to foods produced at smaller farms or labeled “local,” “organic” or “natural” in the hopes that such products are safer. But a small outbreak of salmonella in organic eggs from Minnesota shows that no food is immune to contamination. While sales for food produced on smaller operations have exploded, partially fueled by a consumer backlash to food produced by larger companies, a new set of food safety challenges has emerged. And small farm operations have been exempted from food safety laws as conservatives, farmers and foodlovers have worried about too much government intervention and regulators have struggled with tight budgets. The government has traditionally focused on safety at large food operations — including farms, processing plants, and retailers — because they reach the most people. Recent outbreaks in cantaloupe, ground turkey, eggs and peanuts have started at large farms or plants and sickened thousands of people across the country. “While it’s critical that food processors be regularly inspected, there is no way the Food and Drug Administration would ever have the resources to check every farm in the country, nor are we calling for that,” says Erik Olson, a food safety advocate at the Pew Health Group. “Unfortunately, there are regulatory gaps, with some producers being completely exempt from FDA safeguards.” The FDA, which oversees the safety of most of the U.S. food supply, often must focus on companies that have the greatest reach. A sweeping new egg rule enacted last year would require most egg producers to do more testing for pathogens. Though the rule will eventually cover more than 99 percent of the country’s See Food, Page D3.

Get back to basics with native plants and shrubs Mississippi’s early landscape was once a quilt-like mixture of grasslands, woodlands and wetlands, says Timothy Schauwecker, an associate professor of landscape architecture/landscape contracting at Mississippi State University. The grassland and its soil resource was an important reason settlers were drawn to the state back in the early 1830s. Much of the prairie habitat and the native plants have been lost. This is happening all across this country. Wildflowers, native trees and shrubs are threatened as a result of our ever-sprawling urban development. Also, invasive species are crowding out the native species, and climate change and other fac-



tors are making an impact, says the Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center in Austin, Texas, one of the leading research facilities on the subject. One in every three plant species in the United States and one in eight around the world are facing extinction, the center says. Gardeners can make a difference. One way is by incorporating more native plants and trees into home landscapes. “Gardening with Native

If you go The Native Plant Society’s annual Fall Plant Sale will run from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. today at the Clinton Nature Center, 617 Dunton Road. Offered for sale the first time, in limited numbers, will be perennial wildflowers — Swamp Sunflower, White False Indigo, Joe-Pye-Weed, Stokes Aster, Swamp Milkweed, Butterfly Milkweed, Lanceleaf Tickseed, Eastern Purple Coneflower, Blue Flag Iris, Copper Iris, Cardinal Flower, Monarda, Cut-leaf Coneflower and Maypop — plus native plants and shrubs.

Plants of the South” by Sally Wasowski is a good resource. Gardeners are discovering that native plants are better suited to their landscapes and, therefore, are easier to grow and maintain, she said. Gardeners can remove invasive plants from home

landscapes and adjoining wooded areas and waterways. Glossy green Chinese privet is one of the worst invasives in our area because it produces seeds thatgerminate easily and are spread by bird droppings. Some of the worst Mississippi inva-

sive species include Japanese honeysuckle, johnsongrass, kudzu, cogongrass, alligatorweed, Chinese tallow tree, callery pear, waterhyacinth, hydrilla, Eurasian watermill and parrotfeather. Most came into our state as landscape plants or by accident over the last 100 years and have met few constraints. A considerable amount of our tax dollars are being used to combat their disruptive spread, but homeowners and landowners need to join the fight. Gardeners can incorporate more wildflowers into their landscapes, and there are some beautiful species that do well. Fall bloomers such as asters, ageratum, swamp See Garden, Page D3.

That farm issued a recall after six cases of salmonella poisoning were linked to the farm’s eggs. A new food safety law President Barack Obama signed earlier this year exempts some small farms as a result of farmers and local food advocates complaining that creating costly food safety

plans could cause some small businesses to go bankrupt. The exemption covers farms of a certain size that sell within a limited distance of their operation. Food safety advocates unsuccessfully lobbied against the provision, as did the organic industry. Christine Bushway of the Organic Trade Association, which represents large and small producers, says food safety

Clarkson Continued from Page D1. because the suits bent to her will — not the other way around. “I think people project on you like the formula that has worked in the past. And then they get to know you,” she said. “(Now) they know me better as an artist, they know me better as a person. They know what I’m going to do and what I don’t like, and it just really works.”

In person, Clarkson is bubbly and quick to laugh, sharing that in her time off, she picked up the violin and started learning Italian with Rosetta Stone. “I’m horrible at it so far,” she laments lightly. But she never comes close to revealing the subject of “Stronger’s” multiple scornful breakup and kiss-off songs.

Broccoli Continued from Page D1. human nutrition at the University of Copenhagen. He previously sat on panels at the International Agency for Research on Cancer examining the link between vegetables and cancer. Dragsted said glucoraphanin is a mildly toxic compound used by plants to fight insects. In humans, glucoraphanin may stimulate our bodies’ natural chemical defenses, potentially making the body stronger at removing dangerous compounds. Other experts said eating foods packed with extra nutrients would probably

only have a minimal impact compared with other lifestyle choices, like not smoking and exercising. “Eating this new broccoli is not going to counteract your bad habits,” said Glenys Jones, a nutritionist at Britain’s Medical Research Council. She doubted whether adding the nutrients in broccoli to more popular foods would work to improve people’s overall health. “If you added this to a burger, people might think it’s then a healthy food and eat more burgers,” Jones said.

Garden Continued from Page D1. sunflowers and goldenrod can be seen in gardens and along roadsides now. Fall is the ideal time to sow wildflower seeds or plant transplants, according to the MSU publication “Wildflowers for Mississippi Meadows and Gardens,” available at Other tips are: refrain from disturbing the soil too much when planting wildflowers to avoid future weed problems, and make sure that seed/soil contact is achieved by using a rake to tamp down the seed, which should be mixed with sand before the seed is planted. Complicated mixes with 12 or more species are not as successful as sowing only one species at a time or your own mix of two or three known performers for our area. A light mulch of pine needles or straw will prevent the soil from crusting, and water them if needed. Invasive weeds and grass

should be removed the following spring or summer, and wildflower areas need to be mowed or stalks cut back only after seeds have had time to mature on the plant. Seeds for some of the most disease and insect resistant species can be purchased from The Mississippi Wildflower Conservation Program at wildflower. Other source is Wildseed Farms in Fredericksburg, Texas. Also, seeds from the MSWCC are cultivated at the USDA Jamie Whitten Plant Materials Center near Coffeeville and are planted along the Natchez Trace. But limited amounts may be purchased by the general public. •

comes down to proper operation of a farm or food company, not its scale. “How is the farm managed? How much effort is put into food safety?” she asks. “If you don’t have really good management, it doesn’t matter.” Smaller farms do have some obvious food safety advantages. Owners have more control over what they are producing and often do

not ship as far, lessening the chances for contamination in transport. If the farm is organic, an inspector will have to visit the property to certify it is organic and may report to authorities if they see food being produced in an unsafe way. Customers may also be familiar with an operation if it is nearby. But those checks aren’t failsafe. The FDA has reported at least 20 recalls due to

pathogens in organic food in the last two years, while the Agriculture Department, which oversees meat safety, issued a recall of more than 34,000 pounds of organic beef last December due to possible E.coli contamination. Egg safety is equally ambiguous. While many like to buy cage-free eggs, those chickens may be exposed to bacteria on the grounds. So what can a consumer

do? Experts say to follow the traditional rules, no matter what the variety of food. Cook foods like eggs and meat, and scrub fruit and cleaning your kitchen well. Do your part, and hope for the best, the experts say. “Labels like organic or local don’t translate into necessarily safer products,” says Caroline Smith DeWaal of the Center for Science in the Public Interest.
