World officially welcomes 7 billionth person By The Associated Press

The annual trick-ortreating in Vicksburg and Warren County will be from 6 until 8 tonight

WEATHER Tonight: clear, lows in the 30s Tuesday: clear, highs in the 70s

MANILA, Philippines — She came into the world at two minutes before midnight, a tiny, wrinkled girl born into a struggling Manila family. Today, she became a symbol of the world’s population reaching 7 billion people and all the worries that entails for the planet’s future.

Danica May Camacho, born in a crowded public hospital, was welcomed with a chocolate cake marked “7B Philippines” and a gift certificate for free shoes. There were bursts of photographers’ flashes, and speeches by local officials. The celebrations, though, reflected symbolism more than demography.

Amid the millions of births and deaths around the world each day, it is impossible to pinpoint the arrival of the globe’s 7 billionth occupant. But the U.N. chose today to mark the day with a string of festivities worldwide, and a series of symbolic 7-billionth babies being born. Danica weighed 5 pounds, 5 ounces at birth, and she

was a month premature in arriving. Demographers say it took until 1804 for the world to reach its first billion people, and a century more until it hit 2 billion in 1927. The twentieth century, though, saw things begin to cascade: 3 billion in 1959; 4 billion in 1974; 5 billion in 1987; 6 billion in 1998.

The Rev. Deacon Cathy Halford, left, and the Right Rev. Duncan Gray III pray over the new Magnolia Plaque and Alumni Center and Archives building at All Saints’ School.

All Saints’ dedicates alumni facility, plaque By Pamela Hitchins With songs and prayers, Scripture readings, holy water and the smiles and hugs of former classmates, a new alumni center and commemorative Magnolia Plaque were dedicated this weekend on the campus of the former All Saints’ Episcopal School. The Right Rev. Duncan Gray III, bishop of Mississippi, presided over a Eucharistic service in the All Saints’ chapel, upstairs from the new center. He then led guests outside for the dedication on the garden patio, which includes bricks inscribed with the names of graduates, and to the plaque mounted in front of the Confederate Avenue school’s signature white pillars and windowed facade. Since 2009 the All Saints’ campus has been home to the AmeriCorps NCCC Southern Region, and Gray noted the merging of past, present and future in his homily. In the alumni center, he said, “We are beginning to find the past and the present being brought together... and in the midst of training another group of young people in what

Five homicide cases, including two potential capital cases and another in which three teens are accused of murder, are expected to be reviewed by the grand jury this week in Warren County Circuit Court. The panel of 18 jurors was selected from a pool of about 200 residents summoned from voter rolls and sworn in earlier today by presiding Judge M. James Chaney. “We anticipate presenting 100-plus cases to the grand jury,” said District Attorney Ricky Smith. The list of cases was still being developed Friday, he said. Some investigations were awaiting the receipt of lab results and other evidence, but cases he anticipated presenting include: • Corey Thompson, 25, 4880 U.S. 80 — charged with armed robbery and capital murder in the May 1 death of Maurice Morris, 19, 2228 Grove St. Morris and Thompson are believed to have attempted to rob a Vicksburg man outside the Confederate Ridge Apartments at 780 U.S. 61 North. Instead, Morris was shot and killed by the victim. His body was discovered the following day. Mississippi statute allows a capital murder charge if a death occurs in the commission of another felony. • Rondell Galvin, 20, 209 Overlook Drive — accused of capital murder and robbery in the July 15 death of William Jones, 20, 280 Curry St. Jones was robbed of an undisclosed amount of cash and shot around 2:15 a.m. outside the home where See Jury, Page A2.

Emergency officials work to remove Timothy Culkin, 41, 302 Meadowvale Drive, from the cab of a Quality Trucking tanker that flipped onto its side as Culkin attempted to make a turn from Indiana Avenue onto North Frontage Road at 5:32 p.m. Sunday. The truck, registered in Magnolia, Ark., was carrying 5,000 gallons of caustic soda, which had to be transferred to another truck dispatched from Magnolia before the damaged truck could be righted and

JACKSON (AP) — Officials with Entergy Mississippi said they expect savings to customers of up to $284 million over a decade if an Indiana-based power grid operation takes over management of its high-voltage transmission lines. Entergy Mississippi officials discussed the proposal today in Jackson. Most customers in Warren County receive their electricity from Entergy. Entergy Corporation first announced in May that it was

Father accused in killing moved to mental facility HOUMA — A Louisiana man accused of bludgeoning, decapitating and dismembering his disabled 7-year-old son has been moved to a mental health facility north of Baton Rouge. Jeremiah Lee Wright, 30, was sent to the Eastern Louisiana State Mental Health System in Jackson from the Lafourche Parish Detention Center in Thibodaux on Friday. Wright was arrested Aug. 14, the day his son, Jori Lirette, was killed, and has been held on $5 million bond.


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Wright has been found not competent to stand trial. Judge John Leblanc committed Wright to the facility and ordered monthly reports. A status conference is Jan. 31.

2 stabbed at club in Shreveport SHREVEPORT — A Shreveport woman has been charged with stabbing two people inside of a downtown night club. The stabbing happened

about 4 a.m. Sunday at Kokopellist. Police said Yossila Tramiel was arguing with two women when the altercation turned violent. Twenty-one-year-old Precious Davis was stabbed twice in the lower left abdomen and 29-year-old Zyonobia Davis was cut on her arms. Both wwere treated at area hospitals. Police later arrested Tramiel, 28, and booked her into city jail for two counts of aggravated battery. It was not immediately known whether Tramiel has an attorney.

he lived with his parents. Galvin’s co-defendant, James Walker, 37, 33 Johnson St., was charged with being an accessory after the fact. • James Ransom, 19, and Michael Jackson, 19, both of 1717 Martha St., and Kendall Oliver, 14, 2200 Marshal St. — accused of murder in the May 31 shooting of Robert Banks, 20, 226 High Hill Drive, following a dice game. At the time of their arrest, police said Ransom was believed to have fired the shot that killed Banks, and Smith said the grand jury could indict Oliver and Jackson for murder or as accessories to the crime. • Daniel O’Neil Dodd — charged with culpable negligence manslaughter in the May 23 shooting death of Michael Justin Tornero, 26, of Houston, Texas. Dodd and Tornero were co-workers hired by Entergy Mississippi to provide security in certain areas affected by the 2011 Mississippi River Flood. Tornero died in a hotel room from a gunshot wound police said resulted from gunplay. • Annette Scott, 44, 2910 Arcadia Place — accused of the June 13 stabbing death of her live-in boyfriend, Michael Terrence Smith, 45. Warren County Coroner Doug Huskey said Smith died around 11:15 p.m. from multiple stab wounds, and Scott was arrested

at the scene. In addition to the homicides, the grand jury is expected to review cases including two Jackson teens accused of armed carjacking; a reportedly homeless woman charged with false pretense after scamming at least eight local residents of thousands of dollars; and other defendants accused of illegal possession of drugs and various property crimes, such as burglary and grand larceny. The grand jury meets with Smith and local law enforcement, reviewing evidence and issuing indictments where there is enough evidence to go to trial. If the evidence is insufficient, the grand jury “no bills” the case. Jurors can also reduce the charge to a misdemeanor. Those indicted will be arraigned — formally advised of the charges against them — and given a trial date Friday. In addition, jurors tour the Warren County Jail, the Youth Court and the Children’s Shelter; meet with judges and other county officials; and issue a report of recommendations to the Board of Supervisors based on their findings. The Warren County grand jury meets four times a year — in January, May, July and October.

cleared. No significant spills were reported, though a hazardous materials cleanup unit was called in from Jackson. Culkin, initially taken to River Region Medical Center, was later flown to University Medical Center in Jackson, where he was in stable condition this morning, UMC spokesman Peggy Wagner said. Vicksburg police were at the scene until 4:30 a.m., said Sgt. Jackie Johnson.

Culkin Water District has issued a boil water alert for its customers between 2425 and 4160 Oak Ridge Road. Residents are asked to boil cooking and drinking water for 2 minutes before consumption. The alert affects about 150 households until further notice.

Appeals Court 3 Ole Miss students from Madison killed to hold in wreck on Interstate 55 near Vaiden hearings at state BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MSU Nov. 15 By Jack Elliott Jr. The Associated Press JACKSON — The state Court of Appeals hits the road in November, heading to Mississippi State University on Nov. 15 to hold oral arguments in two cases. The Appeals Court periodically schedules oral arguments on college campuses — and occasionally at other locations — as a teaching tool for students. It is known as the “Court on the Road” program. Earlier this year, the Appeals Court heard oral arguments at University of Mississippi School of Law. A panel of three Appeals Court judges will answer questions from MSU students after the oral arguments, but will not talk about the cases which were argued. The two cases are among dozens the Appeals Court will take up during the NovemberDecember term. The first case before the court at 1:15 p.m. at the Henry Hunter Center on the Starkville campus is an appeal from John Daniel Rodgers. Rodgers was convicted in 2010 in Monroe County in a home invasion case. He was sentenced to 15 years for armed robbery and 15 years for burglary of a residence. The sentences are running concurrently. Prosecutors said an elderly Amory couple were severely beaten during the incident. The second case will be heard at 2:30 p.m. Third-year law school students from Ole Miss’ criminal appeals program will present arguments on behalf of Darrell Walker. Walker was sentenced to life in prison in 2010 for his role in the slaying of a home health nurse whose throat was slashed. Walker was convicted in Hinds County of accessory after the fact in the 2008 death of Juliet Lilly.

No winners in La. lottery BATON ROUGE (AP) — None of the tickets sold for Saturday night’s Powerball, Louisiana Lotto or Easy 5 games matched all the numbers necessary to win the big prizes. Players matching all five numbers and the Powerball would have won or shared the $203 million jackpot. The prize goes to an estimated $245 million for Wednesday. In the Lotto game, the $400,000 prize increases to an estimated $425,000 on Wednesday. The Easy 5 drawing rises to an estimated $210,000 after none of the tickets matched all five numbers drawn for Saturday’s $180,000 jackpot.

VAIDEN — Three students from the University of Mississippi died Sunday in a onevehicle crash on Interstate 55 near Vaiden, the Mississippi Highway Patrol said. State Trooper Tony Dunn said the accident occurred about 8:30 a.m. Sunday when the car in which the students were riding ran off the road into the median and between two overpasses which pass over Mississippi Highway 35. The vehicle continued off the embankment and overturned, landing upside down on its hood on Highway 35. The University of Mississippi and the patrol identified the students as 18-year-old Samuel Clayton Kelly, 19-yearold Charles Walker Kelly and 19-year-old Bryant Mason Wilbanks, all of Madison. All three were freshmen at Ole Miss. Dunn said all three were pronounced dead at the scene, and the accident is under investigation.

Jackson schools needs $176.2M for repairs JACKSON — Jackson Public Schools needs about $176.2 million for renovation, repair and modernization of classrooms, according to the Council of the Great City Schools, a coalition of U.S. urban school districts. The council recently released a report on infrastructure needs based on a survey of urban districts. The district also has $74.8 million in deferred maintenance, projects that have been post-

poned because of a lack of funds. Interim Superintendent Jayne Sargent said through a spokeswoman that Jackson schools have made significant improvements, but there is a need for more renovations and repairs.

Jackson man dies in house fire JACKSON — Authorities are investigating the cause of a fire that claimed the life of a 48-year-old Jackson man. Neighbors said Leroy Tyler, who died in Saturday night’s house fire was the kind of guy who always had a smile on his face. Hinds County Coroner Sharon Grisham-Stewart said that Tyler was pronounced dead after his side of a duplex caught fire sometime before 10:30 p.m. Jackson Fire Department Investigator Greg Travis said Tyler was in the home alone at the time of the fire, and no one else was injured. Grisham-Stewart said her preliminary report shows Tyler appears to have died of smoke inhalation. His body has been sent to the state medical examiner’s office for an autopsy.

High court returns murder case to trial JACKSON — The Mississippi Supreme Court has

returned the murder case against Rennie Gibbs, who is accused in the death of her unborn child, to Lowndes County for trial. A three-judge Supreme Court panel on June 17, 2010, gave Gibbs permission to file a challenge to a murder indictment. The full court heard oral arguments in May. However, in a 6-3 ruling this past week, the Supreme Court said it made a mistake. Presiding Justice George C. Carlson Jr., writing for the majority, said the issues raised by Gibbs could be addressed in a future appeal — if there is one. No trial date has been set. Justice Leslie King, joined by two other justices, said the Supreme Court had had the case for 498 days. King said the court should determine whether Gibbs’ claims were true — that prosecutors want to try Gibbs for a crime that does not exist and a crime that would be unconstitutional if it did exist. During the May hearing, Gibbs’ attorney, Robert McDuff of Jackson, said nowhere does state law make it a crime for a woman to smoke, drink, water ski or even take drugs while pregnant.

Leave job creation to the professionals The latest news from President Barack Obama’s Labor Department is that a federal grant doled out from the administration’s stimulus program to train and employ people in “green jobs” so far has spent $162 million but resulted in only 8,035 people getting jobs. That would be bad enough. But only 1,033 of them still were on the job after six months. If that fact alone weren’t irritating, a report from the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform says many of those “created” jobs weren’t new. Worse yet, they weren’t even “green.” Some of the jobs simply were relabeled as “green” by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. They rather creatively were identified as “green” although they were seemingly as colorless as government regulators working at the Environmental Protection Agency, university professors teaching ecology and Washington lobbyists seeking govern-

ment loan guarantees for clients. This is only the most recent installment of the Obama administration’s boast to create 5 million green jobs over the next decade. The growth of green jobs from 2003-10, even using such loose criteria, has been 3.4 percent a year, less than the national economy’s 4.2 percent, according to the Brookings Institution. Taxpayer outrage sometimes is limited to the most catastrophic failures of the green jobs movement, such as the recent bankruptcy of Fremont-based Solyndra, the solar panel manufacturer under federal investigation after it burned through more than $500 million in loan guarantees and laid off 1,100 workers this summer. But the flaws in government-forced green-job creation are more fundamental, and, we suspect, more widespread than high-profile bankruptcies that leave taxpayers on the hook. “We should be reviewing every one of these loan guarantee”

projects, says Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn. Here’s a better idea: It’s past time to recognize that redistributing taxpayer money to favored green companies that cannot raise enough capital on their own to stay in business makes job creation much more expensive, thanks to government regulations and middlemen, and therefore makes job creation more unlikely. That’s the conclusion of Matt Welch, editor of Reason Magazine. Despite the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act — the stimulus bill — and a spate of other similar governmentdevised, top-down schemes to spur job creation, Welch notes that “fewer able-bodied Americans are employed as a percentage of the potential work force than at any time since 1983.” In short, the more government helps, the more America hurts.

Women making strides in occupying statewide political office JACKSON — Mississippi is on track to have one woman in statewide elective office for the upcoming term, possibly two. Still, Mississippi’s track record of electing women to statewide office is dismal. Nellah Massey Bailey of Meridian, widow of former Gov. Thomas Bailey, was the first woman elected to statewide office, serving from 1947 to 1956 as state tax collector. The office was abolished by the Legislature in January 1964. Julia H. Kendrick (1968-1972) was the last statewide elected clerk of the Mississippi Supreme Court. The court now appoints the clerk. One woman, the late Evelyn Gandy of Hattiesburg, held three elective statewide offices: lieutenant governor (1976-1980), insurance commissioner (1972-1976), and state treasurer (1960-1964 and 1968-1972). She was a state representative (1948-1952). In 1997, Gandy, a Democrat, was honored by an American Bar Association group as a pioneer for women in the legal profession and political arena.

The state will certainly have a woman in the office of treasurer — the two major candidates are Democrat Connie Moran and Republican Lynn Fitch.

said that in her early campaigns she told voters, “I’m proud to be a woman and I hope no one will vote against me because I’m a woman. Likewise, I don’t seek votes on that basis.” “I do not think we have done a very good job in educating women about how far we have come,” Gandy said. “If they knew a bit more of the history of women’s rights perhaps they could be more motivated to take full advantage of their opportunities.” When Gandy left office in 1980, Mississippi returned to an all-male slate of statewide officials until 1999, when Amy Tuck, then a Dem-

ocrat, was elected lieutenant governor. Tuck switched parties in late 2002 and was re-elected in 2003 as a Republican. She was term-limited and left office in January 2008. Men have held all statewide offices the past four years. Mississippians fill eight statewide offices in the Nov. 8 general election, and new officials are inaugurated in January. The state will certainly have a woman in the office of treasurer — the two major candidates are Democrat Connie Moran and Republican Lynn Fitch. Tate Reeves, the two-term state treasurer, is the Republican nomi-

nee for lieutenant governor. Fitch is head of the state Personnel Board and has been deputy director at the state’s employment office. Moran is in her second term as mayor of Ocean Springs and once managed Mississippi’s trade office in Germany. They both pledge to guard the investment of state funds and the college savings program and, as a member of the state retirement board, protect the state pension for active and retired public employees. Fitch said her relationships in Jackson will help make an immediate impact in attracting businesses to the state and growing current Mississippi-based businesses. She said such continuity in state government gives companies confidence to locate in the state. Moran was elected mayor of Ocean Springs in 2005, only weeks before Hurricane Katrina — what she called “a trial by flood.” She said her experience in finance and economics helped her guide the city to recovery without any increase in taxes. Odds are that Republican Cindy

Hyde-Smith will be elected agriculture commissioner — the first time a woman will hold the job. The current commissioner, Republican Lester Spell, is retiring. Hyde-Smith, who’s in the livestock business with her husband, said she will get the agency involved in recruiting jobs in agricultural research, not something traditional economic developers think about. She said that with predictable growth in world populations, Mississippi must be a bigger player in helping feed the world. Her chief opponent, Democrat Joe Gill, said he’d like to institute a mentor or apprentice program to pair young farmers with senior farmers who lack heirs or family interests in continuing their operations. The Reform Party, which has no history of winning Mississippi elections, is running Shawn O’Hara for treasurer and Cathy L. Toole for agriculture commissioner. •

Obama to order FDA to help reduce drug shortages WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is directing the Food and Drug Administration to take steps to reduce drug shortages, an escalating problem that has endangered patients and raised the possibility of price gouging. Patient deaths have been blamed on the shortages, which tend to affect cancer drugs,

anesthetics, drugs used in emergency medicine, and electrolytes needed for intravenous feeding. Hospitals have been President Barack forced to buy Obama from second-

ary suppliers at huge markups. Surgeries and cancer treatments have been delayed. A White House official said Obama planned to sign an executive order today instructing the FDA to take action. The order would be the latest in the president’s campaign to move on initiatives that do not require congressional approval.

Obama also will announce his support for House and Senate legislation that would require drug-makers to notify the FDA six months ahead of a potential shortage, the official said. Under current regulations, drug manufactures are only required to notify the FDA if medically necessary drugs are being discontinued. Noti-

Cain team denies sexual harassment report WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain kept his Washington campaign schedule today even as his team accused “inside-the-Beltway media” of attacking him with allegations that he sexually harassed two women while he was the head of the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s. In a statement Sunday to The Associated Press, his campaign disputed a Politico report that said Cain had been accused of sexually suggestive behavior toward at least two women employees. The report said the women signed agreements with the

said was a review of documentation that described the allegations and the resolution. Cain’s campaign told the AP that the allegations were not true, and amounted to unfair attacks. “Inside-the-Beltway, media have begun to launch unsub-

Santorum tweets more than Perry, but Cain most likely to be retweeted By Beth Fouhy and Jack Gillum The Associated Press NEW YORK — Twitter is abuzz with presidential candidates this year, though not all in the Twittersphere are equal. Rick Santorum tweets a lot more than Rick Perry, Herman Cain is the Republican most likely to be retweeted, and their Twitter followers are dwarfed by President Barack Obama’s. That’s according to an Associated Press analysis of the presidential candidates’ use of Twitter that found widely different levels of engagement, despite the site’s emergence as a go-to hub for political communication. The Associated Press analyzed each candidate’s Twitter stream beginning the day he or she joined the presidential contest through Oct. 24. The data, available from Twitter’s website, highlights every message posted by candidates, as well as how many times their messages were “retweeted,” or reposted, by other users on the site. No one believes the campaign will be won or lost on Twitter — it’s just one slice of an enormous communication effort each campaign wages in cyber-

But with a well-timed 140 character blast, candidates can make news, respond to charges or reinforce talking points in a

matter of seconds. “Candidates are living in a new media ecology that rewards speed, and there is no faster way to distribute your message intact than over Twitter,” said Andrew Rasiej, the founder of Personal Democracy Media which tracks the intersection of media and politics. And unlike pricy television and Web advertising, tweeting is free. That’s one reason some of the financially struggling candidates have relied on Twitter as a way to promote themselves away from the media filter. To that end, the AP found the Newt Gingrich campaign, which trails many other rivals in fundraising and is more than $1 million in debt, to be one of the most active on Twitter. The former House speaker has Tweeted more than 470 times as of last Oct 24. Rick Santorum, the former Pennsylvania senator, had tweeted 326 times to more than 35,000 followers. Perry, the well-funded Texas governor, is at the other end of the Twitter spectrum. His campaign has sent 42 tweets to more than 99,000 followers under his Twitter handle, (at)GovernorPerry, since he launched his presidential campaign in August.

stantiated personal attacks on Cain,” spokesman J.D. Gordon said in a written statement. “Dredging up thinly sourced allegations stemming from Mr. Cain’s tenure as the Chief Executive Officer at the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s, political trade press are now casting aspersions on his character and spreading rumors that never stood up to the facts.” Asked if Cain’s campaign was denying the report, Gordon said, “Yes.” “These are baseless allegations,” Gordon said in a second interview later Sunday evening. “To my knowledge, this is not an accurate story.”

fication of shortages is strictly voluntary. The executive action is part of an overarching push by the White House to portray Obama, who is facing re-election, as an effective counterpoint to congressional Republicans blocking his jobs legislation. Last week, he issued an executive order to help homeowners refi-

nance at lower mortgage rates and to allow college graduates to simplify and lower their student loan payments. On Friday he directed government agencies to shorten the time it takes for federal research to turn into commercial products in the marketplace.

Continued from Page A1. ities. My strongest attribute is my ability to lead my staff through such a remarkable set of standards just as I was trained by Ms. Patricia Simrall in 1994. In conclusion, my staff and I would like to continue to serve in the Tax Collector’s office. Mekus: Checks and balances are essential for any position. In my past business experiences I have collected funds for major projects, developed and maintained balanced budgets while having a good work rapport with the public. I have over 22 years of experience in retail management, grant administration, fundraising, public relations and have successfully worked with government at the local, state and federal levels. I will

bring business knowledge, proven quality customer service and skills for budget management to the office of tax collector. 2. Technology has changed the way Warren County residents pay their taxes. Many renew car tags and pay property taxes online. What ways can the office maintain quality customer service for those who choose to pay in person at the courthouse? Jones: Since 1994, I have developed a personal relationship with the citizens of Warren County. This office will continue to provide fast and courteous service to everyone that enters the courthouse doors. I’ve done my best to maintain and keep

the Warren County Tax Collector’s Office up to the forefront in the great State of Mississippi. However, I still cherish the face-to-face interactions with our customers that can never be replaced with technology. My staff and I will always ensure and guarantee professional service to this great county. Mekus: I have a low tolerance for poor customer service. You have a choice in where you shop, but unfortunately, you don’t have a choice in paying your taxes. Prompt, friendly, knowledgeable service is the only acceptable response. Once in office, determining the areas of improvement will be one priority. Many things may be done right, but it certainly doesn’t mean they cannot be

done better. Business practices and ways to maintain quality customer service should be re-evaluated on a regular basis. 3. What personal qualities would you bring to the office that are most important for those who do business with the office in person? Jones: Personal qualities that my staff and I bring to the office would be our integrity. My personal motto and expectations of my staff are to always do what’s right even when nobody is looking. The citizens of Warren County can always trust that I will aggressively protect their money and their best interest as long as I’m granted the position of tax collector. In conclusion, my

staff and I would like to continue serving in the capacity as your tax collector. Mekus: In every position that I have held, from working in retail sales and retail management, public affairs for the City of Vicksburg, grant writing and fundraising, I have always set high standards for myself. I know the importance of treating every taxpayer with complete respect. I promise to maintain an equal balance between professionalism and compassion, and not to be selective. It is important to always remember that each taxpaying citizen pays the salaries of everyone in government and this must be conveyed to everyone working in the tax collector’s office. I promise to be prudent with every tax dollar.

Plaque Price, a member of the Class of 1972 and a former biology teacher at All Saints’, and her husband, Richard, a Vicksburg native and retired biologist with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Engineer Research and Development Center, live in the rectory as caretakers. “With something as significant as the alumni center here, the feeling of this place will live on,” Susan Price said. “Anyone who has passed through these doors has been touched by the spirit of this place. The friendships we’ve made have been lifelong.” “It means the world (to me),” said Anita Reynolds

Padgett, Class of ’56. “I was afraid it was all lost.” The Magnolia Plaque, given by the Mississippi Department of Archives and History, notes that All Saints’ was established as an Episcopal boarding school for girls in 1901. Offering a high school and two-year college curriculum, the school attracted about 200 students from the United States and abroad. In 1971, boys were admitted. “Aside from my family, the greatest blessing of my life was my four years here,” said Padgett, who came to Vicksburg as a 13-year-old boarder from Grayson, Ala. “The school’s motto was

‘home, church and school,’ and it was all three of these things — it was a family, with parenting from the headmaster and his wife, there was the religious education we received... and the academic preparation.” Padgett said the academics were rigorous, since All Saints’ teachers were qualified to teach at the junior college level. Susan Price said 150 alumni and their guests and former faculty members attended the weekend reunion, dedication and festivities. Since 2009, more than 300 AmeriCorps members have lived on the campus and given a year to commu-

nity service, including this year’s group of 80 volunteers, said Gary Turner, Southern regional director for AmeriCorps NCCC. Members are trained in service and leadership, embrace diversity and work to meet the unique needs of the Southern region, which this year have included cleaning up after the 2011 Mississippi River Flood, tornadoes in Arkansas and Alabama and wildfires in South Carolina. “The All Saints’ Episcopal School vision of excellence in education and training students for a lifetime of service lives on,” Turner said. “We hope we can continue to make you proud.”

Search back on for 3 thought dead in grain elevator blast ATCHISON, Kan. (AP) — Unstable concrete, hanging steel beams and other damage caused by a powerful explosion that ripped through a Kansas

grain elevator are complicating efforts to find three more people likely dead in the blast. Crews were hoping to stabilize the debris and resume

Snowy Northeast could spend week in dark HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Residents across the Northeast woke up to cold, dark homes and one of the earliest snow days in memory today. Officials in some states warned it could be days or even a week before residents have electricity again. Communities from Maryland to Maine that suffered through a tough winter last year followed by a series of floods and storms went into now-familiar emergency mode as schools and roads closed, shelters opened, regional transit was suspended or delayed, and local leaders urged caution. The storm’s lingering effects likely will outlast the snow. Temperatures are expected to begin rising today and the heavy, wet snow will start melting, the National Weather Service said.

One insurgent slammed an explosives-rigged pickup into a checkpoint and immediately afterward three insurgents rushed into the neighborhood, seizing control of at least one

Motorists hunted for open gas stations as power failures rendered pumps inoperable. At a 7-Eleven in Hartford, two dozen cars waited early today in a line that stretched into the street and disrupted traffic. “There’s no gas anywhere,” said Debra Palmisano, of Plainville, who spent most of the morning looking for gas around the capital city. “It’s like we’re in a war zone. It’s pretty scary, actually.” Some local officials canceled or postponed Halloween activities, fearful that young trickor-treaters could wander into areas with downed power lines or trees ready to topple over. “With so many wires down ... the sidewalks will not be safe for pedestrians (Monday) night,” Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton said.

Sidelines Stanford’s win helps it move up in BCS

Stanford’s first win of the season against a ranked team helped Andrew Luck and the Cardinal move up in the BCS standings. While LSU (8-0), Alabama (8-0) and Oklahoma State (8-0) remained locked into the top three spots in the standings released Sunday, Stanford moved up two places to fourth after beating Southern California 56-48 in triple overtime. Boise State (7-0) slipped a spot to fifth, while Clemson (8-1) fell from fifth to 11th after its first loss. LSU and Alabama will play Saturday in Tuscaloosa, Ala., for first place and the inside track to the BCS national championship game. Oklahoma State seems to be in position to win out and reach the title game in New Orleans on Jan. 9. The computer ratings have the Cowboys No. 1. The BCS standings use the Harris poll, the coaches’ poll and computer ratings to determine which teams play for the national championship. LSU is No. 1 in both polls and Alabama is No. 2 in each. The Tigers and Crimson Tide are tied for the second-best computer rating. Oklahoma State is No. 3 in the Harris poll and No. 4 in the coaches’ poll, and Stanford is No. 4 and No. 3. But the difference between the Cowboys (.9310 BCS average) and the Cardinal (.8615) is the computer ratings.

Flashes still looking for a complete effort By Jeff Byrd St. Aloysius had its best offensive game since beating Salem in late September. Unfortunately, as the Flashes (1-9, 1-7 Region 4-1A) head into their final game of the season at Mount Olive dealing with issues on defense and turnovers. The Flashes offense put up 21 points and 327 yards of offense in Friday’s loss to Bogue Chitto. It might have been more, but two fourthquarter turnovers inside the red zone denied the Flashes a chance to get closer in the fourth quarter. The defense was another

story. Bogue Chitto (8-2. 6-2) scored on five straight possessions and then added another touchdown after an interception of Carlisle Koestler at the Bogue Chitto 10-yard line. It added up to a 39-21 loss and spoiled the final home game for seniors Robert Arledge, Carlton Campbell, Scott Johnston and Zane Russell. St. Al coach B.J. Smithhart was thankful for the effort his seniors displayed. “I hate it for my seniors, because they did a great job tonight,” Smithhart said. “Carlton (Campbell) was outstanding.

Rams hammer listless Saints Manning’s TD pass hooks Dolphins

By The Associated Press ST. LOUIS — At the start of the day, the St. Louis Rams were a distant second as a downtown attraction. Strictly a warmup act before the Cardinals’ World Series parade. Fans who stayed away to establish early position on the parade route missed the Rams’ stunning 31-21 upset of the New Orleans Saints — and a pregame appearance by the crosstown champions. Chris Long swung an imaginary bat in tribute to the Cardinals after the first of his three sacks. “It just hit me. We’ve got Chris Carpenter in the building. I saw Molina and all those guys,” Long said. “I’m usually not one for celebration, but that was fun to do.” Steven Jackson scored two touchdowns in his first 100-yard game in three seasons and backup quarterback A.J. Feeley, starting for the second straight week in place of injured Sam Bradford, threw his first touchdown pass in four years. Drew Brees failed to take advantage of a beat-up secondary, throwing two interceptions and barely keeping alive his touchdown pass streak at 35 games on a meaningless score in the final seconds. A week earlier, he threw five touchdown passes in a 62-7 rout of the winless Indianapolis Colts. He thought the Saints came in uninspired.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The New York Giants did just enough against the winless Miami Dolphins so they can head into the tough part of their schedule feeling good, thanks in large part to Eli Manning. The 30-year-old quarterback capped his second straight near-flawless performance with a 25-yard touchdown pass to Victor Cruz with 5:58 to play to lead the Giants to a 20-17 victory over the frustrated Dolphins and embattled coach Tony Sparano on Sunday. The future is scary, though. The Giants (5-2) will face New England, San Francisco, Philadelphia, New Orleans and Green Bay over the next five weeks in a stretch that may well determine if they make the playoffs for the first time in three years. “We haven’t even thought about our schedule, honestly,” defensive end Osi Umenyiora said. “We just knew this team was going to come in hungry and we See Giants, Page B3.

La Russa calls it a career after World Series title ST. LOUIS (AP) — Tony La Russa retired as manager of the St. Louis Cardinals on Monday, three days after winning a dramatic, seven-game World Series against the Texas Rangers. The 67-year-old La Russa announced his retirement at a news conference at Busch Stadium. The World Series win over Texas was the third of La Russa’s 33-year career. The manager guided the Cardinals to the championship despite being 10 1 ⁄ 2 games behind

At l a n t a o n Aug. 25 for the final playoff spot in the National League. La Russa retires third on the all-time Tony wins list, 35 La Russa behind John McGraw. In addition to this season, he won championships in Oakland in 1989 and St. Louis in 2006. “Other than some of personal attachments, I feel good,” La

Russa said. “I feel good that this is the right decision and there’s something out there.” His retirement came a day after the city threw a parade to honor the World Series champion Cardinals. An official crowd estimate was not immediately available for the parade down the streets of St. Louis and the celebration at Busch Stadium, but city officials expected several hundred thousand, and it was clearly that, if not more. Pujols drew loud cheers along the parade route and

a long standing ovation at the stadium. When asked on the podium if he’d like to be back for another celebration next season, he smiled sheepishly and said, “Hey, why not?” Whether that happens remains to be seen. After 11 Hall of Fame seasons as a Cardinal, Pujols is a free agent for the first time and it isn’t clear if the mid-market Cardinals will be able or willing to give a long-term contract to a player who turns 32 before next season, despite his career .328 average and 455 homers.


Steelers chew up Pats for fourth straight win By The Associated Press The Pittsburgh Steelers spent two months listening to all the things they couldn’t do. They couldn’t run the ball effectively. They couldn’t stop the run. They couldn’t stop Tom Brady. They couldn’t protect Ben Roethlisberger. Done. Done. Done and done. Halfway through the season, the defending AFC champions are back in their usual spot atop the conference looking down at everyone else following a 25-17 win over New England. Roethlisberger passed for 365 yards and two scores and led a series of clock-consuming drives to lift Pittsburgh (6-2) to its fourth straight victory and beat Brady for the first time since 2004. “We showed that we can throw the ball so people can shut up and go about their business and stop saying whatever they want to say,” former Ole Miss wide receiver Mike Wallace said. And something for the Patriots (5-2) to work on. The NFL’s best offense mustered just 213 yards — less than half its usual total of 474 — mostly because the NFL’s worst defense couldn’t get off the field. The Steelers held the ball for more than 39 minutes, converted 10 of 16 third downs and ran 78 plays while the Patriots (5-2) snapped the ball just 50 times. Off this week were Green Bay, Tampa Bay, Chicago, Atlanta, Oakland and the New York Jets.

St. Al Continued from Page B1. for the season. “The coaches call the plays and I just run them,” Campbell said. “We cut down on a lot of the mistakes that have hurt us in the previous weeks.” St. Al, however, must address its defensive woes during the offseason and in spring practice. The Bobcats rushed for 286 yards and passed for another 150. Three of Bogue Chitto’s scores came off touchdown passes and another long throw set up a

fourth score. For Smithhart, the problem starts on the defensive line. “We’ve trying to fix things, but teams seem to find another gap to go through,” Smithhart said. “You have to credit them (Bogue Chitto). They made plays.” The good news for the Flashes is the that team’s top two tacklers, linebackers Sage Lewis and Elliott Bexley, will be back to provide senior leadership.

Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley sacks New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady Sunday.

Ravens 30, Cardinals 27 The Ravens staged their biggest comeback victory. Billy Cundiff kicked a 25-yard field goal as time expired after Ray Rice scored a career-high three touchdowns. Baltimore (5-2) went on a 24-point run and moved in front 27-24 when Rice scored his third touchdown on the opening play of the fourth quarter.

Texans 24, Jaguars 14 Arian Foster rushed for 112 yards and a touchdown, and Houston shut down the NFL’s worst offense.

Titans 27, Colts 10 Matt Hasselbeck threw for 224 yards and a touchdown, and Nate Washington scored twice. Rob Bironas kicked field goals of 51 and 50 yards, and Jason McCourty recovered a blocked punt in the end zone as the Titans (4-3) snapped a two-game skid.

Michael Vick threw two touchdown passes, LeSean McCoy had a career-best 185 yards rushing and two scores and Philadelphia routed Dallas.

Bills 23, Redskins 0 In their annual visit to Toronto for a home game,

the Bills got nine sacks and Ryan Fitzpatrick threw two touchdown passes to Scott Chandler. Fred Jackson had 120 rushing yards and 74 receiving in helping the Bills (5-2) get off to their first 4-0 start at “home” since 1995.

49ers 20, Browns 10 The Niners (6-1) won their fifth in a row as they continued to romp in the NFC West. Frank Gore ran for both 125plus yards and a touchdown in a fourth straight game and Michael Crabtree made his first TD reception of the season.

Lions 45, Broncos 10 The Lions (6-2) sacked Tim Tebow seven times and turned his two turnovers into touchdowns. Cornerback Chris Houston had the fourth 100yard interception return in team history and defensive end Cliff Avril got a sack, strip and scoop, rumbling 24

yards into the end zone with a fumble as part of Detroit’s 45-point run after the Broncos (2-5) had taken a 3-0 lead on their first drive.

Bengals 34, Seahawks 12 Rookie Andy Dalton threw a pair of first-half touchdown passes and Brandon Tate returned a punt 56 yards for a score as Cincinnati improved to 5-2. Dalton tossed TDs of 14 yards to Jerome Simpson and a 43-yarder to rookie A.J. Green.

Vikings 24, Panthers 21 Ryan Longwell made his field goal, a 31-yarder with 2:43 left, and Carolina’s Olindo Mare missed from the same distance with 26 seconds to go. In a matchup of rookie quarterbacks, Cam Newton put the host Panthers (2-6) in position with a 44-yard completion to Brandon LaFell on fourthand-15, but Mare failed.

fourth quarter, the team’s first defensive score in more than two seasons, and rookie Robert Quinn blocked a punt to set up one score and had a sack. The Saints were shut out in the first half for the first time since 2007, trailing 17-0 and never got closer than 10 points in the second half. Saints receivers were bottled up by a secondary missing its top three players, and the rushing game totaled just 56 yards on 20 carries.

had to find a way to win this game.” Manning found the way on a day the Giants’ running game was limited to 58 yards and the defense failed to show up for the first half. All the while, the Dolphins (0-7) could sense victory. They built a 14-3 lead after their first two possessions and were up seven heading into the fourth quarter before Manning rallied New York once again. Four of the Giants’ five wins have come

in the final quarter. “I’m starting to see gray hair,” said Giants defensive captain Justin Tuck, who returned to the lineup after missing the last three games with neck and groin injuries. “That’s a true thing. But we have the utmost confidence in Eli. They find a way to put us in a situation to win the ballgame. “We put ourselves in a position to have even more points, but I thought we controlled the game all day.”

“I don’t think anybody has ever passed Jimmie Johnson on the outside,” he said, crediting Grubb for making the right calls and adjustments all race long. “I don’t think we had the best race car today, by any means, but we had the most determined pit crew.” Johnson, for much of the day, looked like he might be the one making a huge gain

in the points race, especially as Edwards floundered in the mid-20s and wasn’t getting any better. The cautions, which slowed things for 108 laps, also a season high, allowed Johnson to weather a call by crew chief Chad Knaus to stay out when all the leaders behind him pitted for fresh tires with just over 40 laps to go. But he couldn’t hold on with Stewart

pressing him at the end. “I just could not get away from him on the restart,” he said, adding that he tried to be cognizant of Stewart’s better position in the championship battle. “I thought about going in there and leaning on him, move him up, but that is just not the right thing to do.” Stewart last won the championship in 2005.

The winning pass, to Johnson’s outside, surprised even him.

The Rams (1-6) totaled 11 sacks the first six games. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen that many points scored in an NFL game, but when people just assume it’s going to happen to you, you take it personal,” safety Quintin Mikell said.

Late cop accused of going 120 mph A Miami police officer is accused of driving 120 mph on a turnpike because he was late for his off-duty job working security at a school. The Florida Highway Patrol said officer Fausto Lopez was arrested at gunpoint after leading police on a brief high-speed chase. According to a police report, a trooper spotted a patrol car changing lanes in a dangerous manner earlier this month. The report said the patrol car ignored warnings to pull over and led a brief high-speed chase before stopping near Hollywood. Miami police spokesman Delrish Moss told The Associated Press on Saturday that any administrative action against Lopez will be taken after the outcome of the criminal case. Univision first reported the arrest.

Sins of wedding presents past shouldn’t tarnish future Dear Abby: I was recently invited to a second cousin’s wedding shower and wedding. To be honest, if I saw the bride-to-be on the street, I wouldn’t recognize her. Although I won’t be going to her shower, I am sending a gift. I plan on attending the wedding because I don’t see this side of the family often. What gift should I give the happy couple? When I got married, her parents gave me a pair of used vases. How could I tell they were used? Not only were they not in their original packaging, but they were dirty. Abby, there were dead flies in them! Being a well-mannered bride, I didn’t mention this to my parents, but to this day I still remember. — Wants To Do The Right Thing Dear Wants: Until I saw your signature, I was tempted to suggest you wash and polish the vases, then nicely wrap and send one to your cousin with a note of congratulations, closing with “... more to follow.” But knowing you want to do the “right” thing, I’m asking you to please not blame her for the actions of her parents, who may have been financially strapped at the time. Then find out where she is registered and send something that’s within your budget. Dear Abby: My husband and I have been married for eight



years and are amazed that most of our married friends are unable to separate for even a night. I was raised in a household where my parents took time for themselves — whether it was my dad’s high school reunion that Mom had no interest in, or my mom’s personal growth seminars that Dad was slow to accept. It worked for 48 years until Mom’s death. The wife of one couple we know refused to attend our high school reunion, so her husband didn’t go either — even though many of his close friends would be in attendance. He doesn’t make plans for himself because everything has to be run past his wife. Does our culture create insecurity? Have we lost our independence? -- Independent Thinker in Georgia Dear Independent: No. You have described a man who is passive and prefers to leave the social scheduling to his wife. I don’t think it has anything to do with our culture.

Many couples operate this way by mutual agreement, and you shouldn’t take it personally. Dear Abby: I’m a single, never-married, 50-year-old male. I have no children and was raised with strict, conservative Christian values that I have held all these years. I have never had any long-term relationships. I have met a single gal at work, and we enjoy each other’s company. Our backgrounds, however, are very different. She has been married twice and has two children. In addition, neither of her children was conceived from either of her marital unions. My question is, would our diverse backgrounds impede the fostering of a healthy relationship, or is this something worth pursuing? — Relationship-Challenged Dear Relationship-Challenged: It depends on whether the two of you can have a

meeting of the minds as well as a meeting of the hearts, and whether you are flexible enough to accept her just as she is and vice versa. •

Warm compress helps eyelid cysts drain, heal Dear Doctor K: I have small white bumps on my eyelids that drive me crazy. They don’t hurt, but they look awful. A doctor told me they are meibomian cysts. He said they are harmless, but if I want to get rid of them, I’ll need surgery. What do you think? Dear Reader: These little cysts are harmless in one respect: They are not a form of cancer. But I wouldn’t call them harmless if they bother you every time you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror. First, let’s be sure that you actually have meibomian cysts. Since I can’t look at your eyelids, I’m not sure if your bumps are large or small. Nor do I know exactly where they appear on your eyelids. Just as in real estate, location counts.

ASK DOCTOR K Dr. Anthony L.


Meibomian cysts are small, fluid-filled sacs that can develop along the edge of an eyelid. They take their name from the meibomian glands, which produce a mixture of oil and mucus to keep your skin and hair, including eyelashes, from drying out. The fluid is released through tiny openings called ducts peppered along the edge of the eyelid, just behind the eyelashes. When a duct gets blocked, fluid backs up into the gland.


BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — This could be one of those rare days when, without even trying, an abundance of good ideas pop in your head. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Lucky you, because there is a good chance that something profitable will develop that will be engineered by a good friend working on your behalf. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Ignore people who try to tell you that your expectations are unduly optimistic and infeasible. They’re wrong. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Many times we are more effective when we keep our intentions to ourselves, and this might be one of those days. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Although you aren’t likely to be expecting it, you could learn two valuable lessons about yourself from your past experiences. Aries (March 21-April 19) — This is one day when it really would behoove you to set goals and then go after them. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — You should discuss certain complicated issues that have been dumped in your lap with those whose thinking you respect. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — You might not be able to do the same for yourself, but you are likely to possess a special knack for helping others sort out their financial dilemmas. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — You have an innate sense of understanding that people, not things, make the world go around. You can use this knowledge to your and everybody else’s benefit. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Being able to select exactly what tasks or assignments you wish to perform will work in your favor, allowing you to pick a job that actually gives you a sense of accomplishment. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — If you have a choice, be selective regarding with whom you choose to socialize. If you don’t pick people who think as you do, the day could end up being a humdinger of a bummer. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — This could be a perfect day to go bargain hunting, especially if you are looking for a big-ticket item that is pertinent to your family’s needs. You may find it at a price you can afford.

This prompts inflammation and produces a cyst that grows toward the inner surface of the eyelid. The cyst is small and white, as you describe. Often, meibomian cysts disappear without any treatment at all. Failing this, I recommend putting a warm compress on the area. Apply it for 10 minutes to 20 minutes, three to four times a day. This gentle treatment encourages the cyst to drain and heal. If a cyst becomes infected, I generally prescribe an antibacterial ointment. Sometimes a cyst won’t respond to compresses or becomes very large. At this point, surgery may be needed. Ask your doctor to refer you to an eye specialist who specializes in eyelid surgery and can drain or remove the cyst.

Another possibility is that you have milia. Milia are tiny, white dome-shaped bumps. They form on the skin of the eyelid or around the eye. Milia are much smaller than meibomian cysts — about the size of pinheads. Finally, although it is rare, some types of skin cancer can start on the eyelids. Here are my “red flag” signs for eyelid bumps: Are the bumps red and painful? Are they growing larger? Do they have a brown or black color? If your eyelid bumps bother you, or if they show any of my red-flag warning signs, get them checked out.

TWEEN 12 & 20

BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: Michael and I have been dating for more than six months. My parents have seen him many times. They like him a lot, and I know he likes my parents because he tells me he does. When he first started picking me up for a date, he would come into the house and assure my parents he would bring me home before my 11:30 p.m. curfew. That happened for about the first two months. Then Michael decided that instead of coming in, he would simply honk his car horn. That didn’t last very long because my parents put an end to it. For the next four months, Michael faithfully parked his car, came inside and went through my parents drill: Where are you going? Who’s going to be there? Make sure you behave like a gentleman. Michael says he is tired of being asked the same old questions time after time. He wants to toot the horn again. He has never failed to bring me home before my curfew — and always safe and sound! Please give me your opinion. — Nameless, Hammond, La. Nameless: Surely a young man can walk from the curb to your front door without complaining. I agree with your

parents. If “Michael” wants to continue seeing you, he should show this courtesy. Dr. Wallace: I’m 15 years old and my mother is going to have a baby. Before she got pregnant, Mom smoked and drank, but not a lot. Now she has stopped drinking completely, but she still smokes. This worries me. Maybe if my mom sees something in print, it will make her stop smoking. — Nameless, Talladega, Ala. Nameless: Women who smoke while pregnant have a higher percentage of stillborn babies, miscarriages and premature deliveries than pregnant women who don’t smoke. Mothers-to-be who smoke are more likely to have low-birth-weight babies, who are at greater risk of having health problems after birth. Your mom has no choice but to give up her nasty habit after she reads your letter and my response. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service. E-mail him at rwallace@ Copley News Service.
