River Region’s CEO leaving after two years on job From staff reports Vance Reynolds, the chief executive officer of River Region Medical Center, announced this morning that he was resigning the post he has held for two years to take a similar position in his hometown of Sherman, Texas. “While this is an exciting pro-

fessional and personal opportunity,” Reynolds said in a statement, “it was a difficult decision because I have fully enjoyed working with River Region’s outstanding board, employees, physicians and volunteers.” Reynolds, who has been in health care management for 12 years, was hired by River Region

from Chesterfield General Hospital in Cheraw, S.C., in December 2008, to replace Phillip Clendenin. He is scheduled to leave Dec. 10. River Region is staffed by 1,600 employees. It has 372 licensed beds and 119 active physicians. The medical center operates most local medical care clinics and services.

She was arrested at 8:51 a.m. Tuesday during a traffic stop on Interstate 20, after a records check showed a warrant for her arrest. McCray was being held on $10,000 bond, Stewart said.

State college board mulls changes to wish-list method JACKSON (AP) — The state college board likely will change how it ranks campus improvement projects that appear on its annual legislative wish list. For years, the Board of Trustees of the State Institutions of Higher

Learning has submitted a systemwide ranking of facility needs based on a scale that emphasizes factors such as safety needs and legal obligations. But often the list has contradicted requests coming directly from cam-

puses through presidents and other lobbyists. The board will consider a proposal at its regular meeting next week to let universities’ opinions lead and ditch the priority scale. Board member Doug Rouse said he

feels the university presidents know best what their campuses need. The board is made up of 12 members, including a president and vice president, plus a commissioner. It helps govern and direct policy for the Mississippi’s eight public univer-

“Leadership and Crisis” by Gov. Bobby Jindal writes. A Brown University graduate and former Rhodes Scholar, Jindal describes himself as an evangelical Catholic and criticizes the “intellectual elite” who he says snub people with religious beliefs. But it’s the Obama administration’s response to the oil disaster that prompts Jindal’s harshest words. He writes that Obama was too trusting of BP, bureaucrats and socalled “experts” in dealing with the April 20 Deepwater Horizon disaster and didn’t react quickly enough. “You would think following the withering criticism of President Bush during Hurricane Katrina that the federal response this time would have been swift and sure. You would have thought that a White House so concerned about its image would have been all over this,” Jindal writes.

Among other points covered in Gov. Bobby Jindal’s book: • Jindal describes his first unsuccessful bid for governor in 2003, including a paltry fundraiser in which one person showed up. “To put it mildly, there were a few skeptics of my campaign. The son of Indian immigrants running for governor in the Deep South?” • Chiding what he calls federal intrusion into health care, Jindal describes the heart defect of his son Shaan, who had surgery in 2004. Jindal suggested that in a governmentrun system, a bureaucrat would have been able to keep the Jindals from the surgeon they wanted. Jindal says he believes health care is a right, but that expansion of coverage should be private sectordriven. • Jindal writes that Republicans have become “Democrats Lite,” supporting large spending because of fear they’ll be called uncaring of the needy. • Even as he says conservatives need to embrace green energy options, Jindal says fossil fuels will dominate the energy supply for the future.

BATON ROUGE (AP) — Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal calls the Obama administration “lackadaisical” in its Gulf oil spill response in his new book “Leadership and Crisis,” laying out his views on everything from health care to energy policy while keeping silent on whether he harbors presidential ambitions. Criticism of Democratic President Barack Obama for the federal disaster opens Jindal’s 311-page book set for nationwide release next week as speculation turns to those Republicans who might challenge Obama in 2012. Part autobiography, part conservative manifesto, the book charts the rise of the 39-yearold son of Indian immigrants to the Louisiana governorship but makes no hints whether he’ll run for the White House. But throughout the pages, Jindal — a Republican in the governor’s office since 2008 — describes his vision for the GOP on positions from federal spending to education and crisis management. Long seen as a conservative star, Jindal has tough words on immigration, saying all immigrants should learn English, the United States should continue construction of a border fence with Mexico and employers who hire illegal workers should be punished. “I have no problem imposing American values on people who want to become Americans. Freedom, hard work, self-reliance and rugged individualism are values all Americans should embrace,” Jindal

Victorious party must not overreach In November 2008, Illinois Sen. Barack Obama defeated Arizona Sen. John McCain to become the 44th president. Democrat Obama entered the general election campaign with vast advantages over his Republican rival. McCain’s career-long efforts to define himself as a maverick were either ignored or rejected by most voters, with polls showing he was considered a doppelganger of incumbent GOP President George W. Bush. Given Bush’s immense unpopularity, the collapse of the U.S. economy on his watch and the big influx of young voters excited about the prospect of electing an African-American as president, an Obama rout seemed possible. Instead, he won 52.9 percent of the popular vote — about nine of every 17 cast in the election. The 2008 presidential election was thus another affirmation of how closely divided Americans are when it comes to partisanship and ideology. The results were not a tub-thumping endorsement of one side or the other. Nevertheless, Obama and Demo-

cratic congressional leaders Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi chose to interpret the 2008 results as a broad mandate for an unprecedented increase in government spending and a sharp expansion of the government’s role in health care. However history judges this decision, the resulting trillion-dollar-plus annual deficits and the adoption of a huge overhaul of the U.S. healthcare system are broadly unpopular — a verdict confirmed by the Nov. 2 election results, in which Republicans took back control of the House with seats to spare and made gains in the Senate. Now GOP leaders must not make the same mistake as Obama, Reid and Pelosi by claiming a broad mandate for their ideological agenda. A re-examination of the healthcare overhaul is inevitable and makes sense, given its deep flaws. Concerns about heavy spending are absolutely justified, given that we are on course to spend 20 percent of the budget just to cover the interest on the national debt. These are moves that we believe most moderates

and many Democrats will welcome. But in the larger picture, incoming House Speaker John Boehner and Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell need to understand that America is fundamentally a centrist nation and that Americans will resist huge changes imposed without a supportive national consensus. They also need to internalize the fact that polls show Republican lawmakers are held in as low regard as Democratic lawmakers — and that they, too, could be turned out if they don’t have a constructive record over the next two years. Perhaps it is Pollyannaish to assume bipartisan problem-solving is possible in this bitterly divided era, but it is badly needed. The economy remains in terrible condition and joblessness is far too high. Changing this picture is the change that Americans are ready to believe in. We hope everyone in Washington understands this — starting with Obama and Boehner.

MODERATELY CONFUSED by Bill Stahler

Tea Partiers’ brew just old beliefs repackaged WASHINGTON — On Nov. 2, Rand Paul, Republican senatorelect from Kentucky, accepted rounds of congratulations, many of which came from establishment Republicans who had opposed his Tea Party-backed candidacy. In a rousing victory speech, he told his supporters that Tea Partiers had sent a message: “We’ve come to take our government back ... from the special interests who think that the federal government is their own ATM. ... This Tea Party movement is a message to Washington that we’re unhappy and that we want things done differently.” But by the time Paul claimed victory, he had already been co-opted by a business-backed GOP in service to several of the “special interests” that Paul denounced. The libertarian-leaning Paul — the one who had targeted foreign nationbuilding and military spending right along with welfare and entitlement programs — was long gone, replaced by a candidate much more in keeping with mainstream Republican interests. Will the Tea Partiers change the

GOP? Not in any way that matters. The confrontational, brookno-compromise activism of the Tea Party has pushed the GOP further to the right; the old guard, mindful of intraparty challenges, will court Tea Party activists with superficial policy changes and fiery rhetoric that pays tribute to a warped reading of the U.S. Constitution. There will be inevitable flare-ups between the clubby old guard and the Tea Party newcomers. But cable news chatter about those tensions will exaggerate their importance. It doesn’t mean much when Karl Rove is forced to backtrack on remarks dismissing Tea Partiers as less than “sophisticated.” Behind

the scenes, Rove is still working hand-in-glove with the establishment Republican Party to enact policies that look much the same as those in favor under George W. Bush: lower taxes and less regulation without any significant reduction in government spending. And Tea Party activists will embrace that agenda. For all the headlines generated by the Tea Party movement over the last year and a half, there is nothing new about its ideology. In April, The New York Times published a survey outlining the beliefs of the 18 percent of Americans who support the Tea Party, a group that tends to be middle-class, white and

older. They are mostly ultraconservative Republicans. They may be frustrated with the mainstream GOP, but they’ve aimed more of their fire at Democrats than Republicans. In Georgia, for example, it’s no surprise that Julianne Thompson, state coordinator for the Atlanta-based Tea Party Patriots, is a longtime activist in Republican politics. Even the extremism of some Tea Partiers is recycled, borrowed from the paranoid right of the 1950s, when John Birchers nearly took control of the Republican Party. In a recent New Yorker piece, Sean Wilentz traced much of the faux history disseminated by Glenn Beck, who provides the Tea Partiers with an intellectual framework, back to an obscure writer named Willard Cleon Skousen — so radically right-wing that even J. Edgar Hoover regarded him as a nut. While the Tea Party movement is a big tent sheltering a wide range of views, it still includes some who want to abolish the Federal Reserve, the Department of Education, Social Security and Medi-

care. In fact, Harry Reid’s opponent, Sharron Angle, endorsed much of that. But for all the supposed Tea Party anger about government spending, most of its supporters tend to favor entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare, according to The New York Times. And they don’t seem aggravated by the Pentagon’s budget, either. Why would they be? According to the Times, 57 percent of them hold a favorable opinion of George W. Bush, whose tax cuts, two unfunded wars and massive increase in entitlement spending — the Medicare prescription drug plan — wrecked the federal budget. Meanwhile, however, more than half the Tea Partiers told the Times that Obama’s policies — which they consider “socialist” — favor the poor. This really isn’t a new blend of tea, after all. It’s the same brew of ultraconservative ideology that’s been served on the right for decades. •

Feds: Woman illegally fired over Facebook remarks

The associated press

A Sea Hawk helicopter delivers pallets of supplies to the Carnival cruise ship Splendor off the coast of San Diego.

Thousands on cruise get Spam, a slow tow SAN DIEGO (AP) — The former fun seekers of the Carnival Splendor are cruising again — but just barely. In a scenario likely none of its more than 3,000 passengers pictured when they planned their seven-day jaunt on the Mexican Riviera, the disabled cruise liner was being towed to San Diego by tugboats. Instead of a lavish seafood buffet, passengers were subsisting on Spam. After two days adrift, the ship began moving again Tuesday when the first of several Mexican tugboats arrived. Rocking gently with the waves, the ship was pulled along slowly with a Coast Guard boat along one side and the USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier on the ship’s other side. There were no visible signs of damage.

After two days adrift, the ship began moving again Tuesday when the first of several Mexican tugboats arrived. Rocking gently with the waves, the ship was pulled along slowly with a Coast Guard boat along one side and the USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier on the ship’s other side. The 952-foot vessel was expected to arrive in San Diego on Thursday night, Miami-based Carnival Cruise Lines said in a statement. The ship was 200 miles south of San Diego and about 44 miles off shore when an engine room fire Monday morning killed its power and set it adrift. No one was hurt, but the nearly 4,500 passengers and crew were left without air conditioning, hot water, cell

phone or Internet service. The ship’s auxiliary power allowed for working toilets and cold water. U.S. Navy Seahawk helicopters were ferrying supplies, including Spam, crab meat, croissants and Pop Tarts to the ship from the USS Ronald Reagan, an aircraft carrier that reached the Splendor after it was diverted from training maneuvers to help. The Splendor only had enough food to last through

midday Tuesday because refrigerators on the ship stopped working after the power was knocked out, Navy Commander Greg Hicks said. But thousands of pounds of food were delivered by Tuesday night. The U.S. Coast Guard and Mexican Navy also sent resources to the ship. The tugboats were originally set to take the Splendor to Ensenada, Mexico, but the cruise line changed its plans and will attempt to have it towed to San Diego, where hotel and flight arrangements would await the passengers, Carnival said. If the process moves too slowly, it might still be taken to Ensenada, the statement said.

Feds propose graphic cigarette warning labels RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — The federal government hopes new larger, graphic warning labels for cigarettes that include images of corpses, cancer patients, and diseased lungs and teeth will help snuff out tobacco use. The images are part of a new push announced by the Food and Drug Administration and the Department of Health and Human Services today to reduce tobacco use, which is responsible for about 443,000 deaths per year. The number of Americans who smoke has fallen

dramatically over the past 40 years, but those declines have stalled recently. About 46 million adults in the U.S., or 20.6 percent, smoke cigarettes, along with 19.5 percent of high school students. The new prevention plan is part of the law passed in June 2009 giving the FDA authority to regulate tobacco, including marketing and labeling guidelines, banning certain products and limiting nicotine. The law doesn’t let the FDA ban nicotine or tobacco entirely. “Today, FDA takes a crucial

The FDA is proposing 36 labels for public comment, which include phrases like “smoking can kill you” and “cigarettes cause cancer,” but also feature graphic images to convey the dangers of tobacco use.

smart money Q: I am 66, single and retired with a $2,000-a-month pension, not Social Security qualified, Medicare A&B covered as well as health insurance. I have about $300,000 invested, age/ risk appropriate, and other than a little arthritis, I’m very healthy. I own my own home outright with about $2,000 in taxes. The home is valued anywhere from $150,000 to $190,000 in this small town. I have no debt of any kind and live well within my BRUCE means. My car is 2009, and I owe nothing on it. I covered my final expenses years ago and carry a very small life insurance policy fully paid up through my federal employment. I think I have my bases covered. My home is lovely: three bedrooms, 1,250 square feet and with a fairly large yard. It’s in a good neighborhood. I want a smaller singlelevel with a garage, preferably not a condo. A newer, smaller house would cost more than my current house even though some of the upkeep is less, and taxes and insurance would be the same. I think you can see the problem. I do not want to enter into a mortgage situation at my age and income. Is there something you can tell me that I can’t see? It basically comes to quality of life. I am not ready to rent or move to the senior facility, but I see the benefit of making a move before one has to. I really have no one to bounce this off of, so I hope you can read between the

lines and give me some ideas. My three children all live up to four hours away, and there is really not even a reason to stay in this town. I do not desire to live in close proximity to my children. I thank you in advance. — C.S., via e-mail A: Looks to me that you’re in pretty decent shape financially, but I wonder why you say “you are not ready to rent.” Why not? Renting in today’s world can have remarkable benefits. You mentioned you have somewhere between $150,000 and $190,000 in your home, which is fully paid for. Let us take the loan number of $150,000. That number, even in today’s world, just taking a modest risk in good, solid corporate instruments, should throw you somewhere around $7,000 a year. That $7,000 very likely would go a long way toward renting a smaller home, and you don’t have to worry about the major problems that home ownership can deliver. In my opinion, you would be far better off to do that. Now I do recognize that this is a lousy market to be selling your house in, and you may have to put that move off for a couple of years, but it doesn’t hurt to list it. If someone wants it badly, they will take it, and if nobody takes it, no blood. I wouldn’t even consider going into a new mortgage or putting the greatest portion of the asset of the home into another home. You take a look at the market. It won’t last forever, but then again, neither will you or I. But in my opinion, you should seriously consider first selling, then renting. •

WASHINGTON (AP) — It wasn’t just the botched technical decisions. BP and other companies’ management, communication and overconfidence in dealing with risk led to the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, investigators for the presidential commission said Tuesday. The commission’s chief engineer, Richard Sears, outlined seven managerial findings, including muddled lines of authority and a compounding cascade of small problems that ultimately caused 11 people to die and millions of gallons of oil to spill. “This is something that built over hours if not days, weeks, months. The companies involved each had data. They were each responsible for operations, and if data had been shared differently and operations had been carried out differently, I believe this disaster could have been prevented,” Sears said. “And for whatever reason...it didn’t happen that way, and it’s sad.” Investigators, experts and

Report finds White House altered drilling ban record WASHINGTON (AP) — An inspector general said the White House edited a report about the administration’s moratorium on offshore oil drilling to make it appear that scientists and experts supported the idea of a six-month ban on new drilling. The Interior Department’s inspector general says the panel members said Tuesday BP too often operated on the fly in the closing days of work on its doomed Gulf oil well. They said the company was hurried and made confusing, last-minute changes to plans that were unusual in the complex environment of deep water. They said BP could have operated more safely if the company took the time to get the

changes resulted “in the implication that the moratorium recommendation had been peer reviewed.” But it hadn’t been. Still, the report said the administration did not violate federal rules because it had offered a formal apology and already publicly clarified the nature of the expert review. necessary equipment. “We are aware of what appeared to be a rush to completion,” commission co-chairman William K. Reilly said. What is unclear, he said, is what drove people to determine they could not wait for equipment and materials to perform operations more safely. Lawyers investigating the April 20 disaster for the com-

mission said they would examine a series of steps where decisions saved time or money and could have increased risks. But the panel’s chief counsel, Fred H. Bartlit Jr. repeated that there was no evidence that anyone involved in drilling the well consciously chose cost cutting over safety. The panel’s leaders made clear Tuesday that the findings in sum exposed a lack of safety culture on the rig, with Reilly blasting all three companies — BP, Halliburton Co. and Transocean — as “laggards” in the industry and in “need of top-to-bottom reform.” The reforms suggested by the commission included improving communication between the operating company, in this case BP, and its contractors. The panel’s also said there needed to be clearer procedures for closing a well. “There didn’t seem to be a lot of rigor as to how these endof-well operations were managed,” said Sears, a 30-year veteran of Shell.

Oil companies increasingly eye natural gas NEW YORK (AP) — Pretty soon, Big Oil will be more like Big Gas. The major oil companies are increasingly betting their futures on natural gas, with older oil fields producing less crude and newer ones either hard to reach or controlled by unfriendly nations. They are focusing more than ever on natural gas because it burns cleaner than oil and is gaining traction as a fuel for transportation. The latest move came Tuesday, when Chevron made a $4.3 billion deal to buy up natural gas

fields in the Northeast. Earlier this year, Exxon Mobil bought XTO Energy to become America’s largest producer of natural gas. And Royal Dutch Shell expects natural gas to make up half its total global production in two years. “If you look at most of the big developments now, they’re not about oil, it’s gas,” said Oppenheimer & Co. analyst Fadel Gheit. The world will continue to run on crude oil for years to come, but even with new discoveries, oil production is

expected to flatten out during the next few decades, according to the latest estimates from the International Energy Association. Far down the road, Gheit believes, Exxon and Shell will lead the energy industry into a new era where oil companies devote most of their efforts to producing natural gas. The Energy Information Administration expects worldwide natural gas production to increase 46 percent from 2007 to 2035, compared with a 30 percent increase in world production of crude and natu-

More shell eggs added to Cal Maine’s recall JACKSON (AP) — CalMaine Foods Inc., the nation’s biggest egg seller and distributor, is adding another 120 dozen shell eggs to a voluntary recall announced Friday. The Jackson-based company said Tuesday that the eggs may possibly be contaminated with salmonella enteritidis. The recall announcement comes four days after CalMaine said it found out one of its suppliers had a sample test positive for salmonella enteritidis. Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and those with weakened immune systems. Symptoms can include fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. The eggs included in the updated recall announcement made Tuesday were sold under Pippin Loose Medium with a sell by/expiration date of Nov. 7. The plant number was 1457, with a Julian date of 282. Cal-Maine said individuals who believe they may have purchased eggs potentially affected by the recall should not eat them and bring

them back to the store they were purchased at for a full refund. Cal-Maine said Friday that it was informed by the Food & Drug Administration that supplier Ohio Fresh Eggs LLC of Croton, Ohio, had a routine environmental study sample that tested positive for salmonella enteritidis. The updated Tuesday announcement involves the same supplier. Cal-Maine said it had purchased about 24,000 dozen unprocessed eggs from Ohio Fresh that were processed and repackaged by its Green Forest, Ark., plant between Oct. 9 and 12. The eggs involved, which were not produced from CalMaine flocks, were distributed to food wholesalers and retailers in Arkansas, California, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas. There have been no confirmed salmonella enteritidis illnesses related to the purchased eggs, the company said. Shares of Cal-Maine Foods climbed $1.55, or 5.2 percent, to $31.15 in midday trading. Over the past year, the stock has traded between $25.90 and $38.88.

ral gas liquids. Gas is becoming more attractive to the oil companies because it’s more accessible. While OPEC controls most of the world’s oil reserves, it controls less than half of the natural gas reserves. In the U.S. and Europe, natural gas is primarily used to heat homes. About three in five American homes use it for heat. And more and more power plants are using it to generate power. Natural gas is used to generate 23 percent of electricity in the U.S., up from 16 percent a decade ago.

House veterans to newcomers: ‘Sweat the small stuff’ WASHINGTON (AP) — Be work horses, not show horses. Choose details over drama. The small stuff? Sweat it. And do it fast. Republicans retaking control of the House in January are getting lessons from veterans of the past two transitions of power on Capitol Hill — 1994, when the GOP last took control of Congress, and 2006, when Democrats grabbed it back. Lesson No. 1: They have a short window to convince the public they’re serious about changing the way Washington works. “If we look like we’re doing business as usual,” says Rep.elect Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., “then obviously the American people will say, ‘Well, what was that all about?”’ “It’s about making measurable progress in reasonable time,” said Rep.-elect Tim Scott, R-S.C. A 22-member Republican team is deliberating this week on how the new GOP majority will turn the populist cry to change Washington into operational policy on everything from rules to fiscal matters.

Republican Majority Transition Chairman Rep. Greg Walden, R-Ore., second from right, speaks on Capitol Hill Tuesday. With him are other members of the transition team, from Lesson No. 2: Details, even private ones, matter. “Sweat the small stuff,” retired House Budget Committee Chairman Jim Nussle, R-Iowa, told the team, which includes four incoming fresh-

men. The minutiae of budgetdrafting and the morass of billions and trillions of dollars at issue can get lost on constituents, he said. “But bouncing checks at the House bank? That con-

nects,” Nussle said, referring to various scandals that have shaken Democrats and Republicans alike. “Having an improper relationship with a page? That connects. Having a rent-controlled office? That

connects.” So do suppressing vendettas and establishing some good will — an exceedingly rare commodity on Capitol Hill in recent years, said another transition veteran. Rules, for example, that allow for amendments and debate. Or a committee chairman sharing staff and office space with the minority. Rep. Michael Capuano, D-Mass., who served as Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s transition chief in 2006, said a few members back then came to him suggesting that since the Republicans “did this, this and this to us, we should do that, that and that to them.” Take the long view, Capuano says he advised Rep. Greg Walden, R-Ore., the GOP’s transition chairman. “You start out on as high a plain as you can find,” Capuano said. “Because once the battle begins, it becomes tougher.” To hear some tell it, the moment Election Day was over the political battles pivoted from the 2010 midterms to the 2012 presidential cycle. Flush

with victory in the House and a gain of seats in the Senate, some in the GOP immediately declared that their party’s congressional mission was now to deny President Barack Obama a second term. By the end of the week Pelosi had stunned Washington by announcing she would continue to lead Democrats even in the minority because she had no intention of allowing Republicans to repeal the health care overhaul and other laws enacted during Democratic rule. So much for good will. In Republican circles, the populist cry to change the way Washington works spilled past Election Day. The man likely to be the next House speaker, Rep. John Boehner of Ohio, appointed veteran lawmakers to the transition team, such as Rep. David Dreier of California, who had served in both the House majority and minority, and four members of the freshman class who rode into office in part by campaigning against that very same establishment.

Cholera centers set up in Haiti’s capital School nutrition bill nation & world could be revived PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — Doctors and aid groups are rushing to set up cholera treatment centers across Haiti’s capital as officials warn that the disease’s encroachment into the overcrowded city will bring a surge in cases. Hundreds of people were already suspected of having cholera, suffering the disease’s symptoms of fever and diarrhea while lying in hospital beds or inside shacks lining the putrid waste canals of Cite Soleil, Martissant and other slums. Following Monday’s confirmation that a 3-year-old boy from a tent camp near Cite Soleil had contracted cholera before Oct. 31 without leaving the capital, the organization said the epidemic’s spread from river towns in the countryside to the nation’s primary urban center was a dangeorus development. Two more capital-originated cases were confirmed Tuesday at the same hospital where the boy was treated.

The administration is scrambling to get enough Senate Republican support to ratify the New START treaty before the Democrats’ majority shrinks by six in January. But Republicans have little incentive to give Obama a big political boost after their strong gains in last week’s congressional elections. Some Republicans argue that the treaty would limit U.S. missile defense options and does not provide adequate procedures to verify that Russia is living up to its terms. A failure to win passage

after the midterm elections — the bill would probably not fare as well when Republicans take over the House in January — appear to have softened opposition. DeLauro said Tuesday that she is willing to support the legislation, which would improve lunches in schools and expand feeding programs for low-income students, with the food stamp cuts because Democrats will have a better opportunity when Congress returns to use another piece of legislation to try to restore the money and increase access to programs for hungry kids. A spokesman for McGovern, Michael Mershon, said he was willing to support the bill because he had gotten “sufficient assurance” from the White House that it will work to restore food stamp cuts.

ATLANTA — Prosecutors in Georgia said they’re searching for more suspects in the killing of an 18-yearold who was stomped to death in a random act of violence at a house party. Douglas County District Attorney David McDade said today prosecutors are “sorting out the numerous varying versions of what took place” but says witnesses indicate others were involved in Bobby Tillman’s beating. Four men have been charged with murder in the killing. They are Quantez Devonta Mallory, 18; Horace Damon Coleman, 19; Emanuel Benjamin Boykins, 18; and Tracen Lamar Franklin, 19. Authorities said the brawl started when a female hit a man, who did not hit back — but vowed to beat up the next man who passed by. Police said the four beat Tillman to death when he wandered by next.

WASHINGTON (AP) — First lady Michelle Obama’s campaign for healthier school lunches could be revived in Congress after two key Democrats said they will drop opposition to using funding from food stamps to pay for it. Reps. Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut and Jim McGovern of Massachusetts have said they will support House passage of a $4.5 billion child nutrition bill that passed the Senate earlier this year. Backed by some anti-hunger groups, the two lawmakers led opposition to passage of that version before the election because it is partially paid for with $2.2 billion taken from future funding for food stamp programs. Since then, a push from the White House, which promised to help restore the food-stamp money, and political reality

Continued from Page A1. before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization — was up 133.9 percent for the year. At the time, Reynolds said the hospital had faced “significant economic challenges” and had made no profit or lost money until last year’s financial gains. A report on 2010 has not been made available. Also, between January and

May of this year, collections lawsuits filed by the hospital against clients unable or unwilling to pay spiked by 670 percent. The hospital attributed the increase to backed up and inefficiently processed “uncollectible accounts” in the health care network’s business office. Fewer suits have appeared in court records in the months since.

In this morning’s statement, marketing director Diane Gawronski said the hospital “has strengthened medical staff relations, recruited more physicians and services ... and inceased core measure scores to the 99th percentile” during Reynolds’ tenure. The chairman of the board of trustees of River Region Health System, the parent company of River Region,

thanked Reynolds for his work here. “We wish Vance much success in his new position,” said Hal Gage. River Region Health System is owned and operated by Community Health Systems of Tennessee, the nation’s largest publicly traded hospital firm. CHS purchased the hospital from Dallas-based Triad

in 2007, five years after the facility was opened on U.S. 61 North. Phone calls to CHS were not returned this morning, but the statement from River Region said the search for a new CEO is underway. River Region was created from the merger of ParkView Regional Medical Center and Vicksburg Medical Center.

Supply Management index that shows manufacturing activity has been expanding for the last 15 months. Still, Mississippi lost 74,700 jobs between February 2008 and September 2010. Webb said if the state maintained a 1.4 percent growth rate in employment over the next several years, it would be 2015 before all jobs lost would be recovered. “We’ve dug a very deep hole,” Webb said. Several of the state’s agencies are operating with bare-

bone budgets after the state has experienced declining revenue the past few years. Rep. Cecil Brown, D-Jackson, said revising the current year’s budget will free up money for agencies that might run deficits. He said the rest could carry forward. The slightly higher revenue estimate for next budget year isn’t expected to result in many agencies or programs receiving significant budget increases. Several were propped up this year with stimulus dollars — money

that won’t be available in fiscal year 2012. “I think it’s going to be tough,” said House Speaker Billy McCoy, D-Rienzi. “Priorities will take place. What will come out of the final process, I couldn’t tell you.” However, lawmakers will have an extra $55 million to work with during the 2011 session that starts in January. Barbour said the money will come from a disaster recovery fund created after Hurricane Katrina. The federal government

appropriated funds for the state’s Medicaid program, which freed up millions in state dollars, Brown said. Initially, the disaster fund was to be used as match money for federal funding. Barbour said Tuesday about $55 million won’t be needed for that purpose. The budget committee will continue meeting this week as it works on a spending proposal to present to the full Legislature. Barbour is expected to release his budget proposal in December.

Continued from Page A1. as China and Germany are complaining that the Federal Reserve’s action drives down the dollar’s value and gives U.S. goods an edge in world markets. Earlier today in Indonesia, the world’s most populous Muslim nation, Obama issued a strikingly personal appeal to the Muslim world to join the West in an unrelenting battle to defeat alQaida and violent extremism. “Let me begin with a simple statement: Indonesia is part of me,” he said in the language, cheering the audience of more than 6,000 mostly young people at the University of Indonesia. Obama had spent several years in the country as a boy. He acknowledged the fraying that remains in U.S.-Islamic relations despite his best efforts at repair. He urged both sides to look beyond “suspicion and mistrust” to forge common ground against terrorism. Obama praised this nation of islands for progress in rooting out terrorists and combating violent extremism, and he resurrected a

economy. “The United States will do its part to restore strong growth, reduce economic imbalances and calm markets,” he wrote. “A strong recovery that creates jobs, income and spending is the most important contribution the United States can make to the global recovery.” Obama outlined the work he had done to repair the nation’s financial system and enact reforms after the worst recession in decades. He implored the G-20 leaders to seize the opportunity to ensure a strong and durable recovery. The summit gets under way on Thursday. “When all nations do their part — emerging no less than advanced, surplus no less than deficit — we all benefit from higher growth,” Obama said in the letter.

theme he sounded last year during visits to Turkey and Egypt: “I have made it clear that America is not and never will be at war with Islam. ... Those who want to build must not cede ground to terrorists who seek to destroy.” In his university speech, Obama said he learned to appreciate the “humanity of all” people during the time he spent in Indonesia, with its thousands of islands, hundreds of languages and people from many different regions and ethnic groups. His brief but nostalgic visit lent an unusually personal touch to the speech, portions of which were devoted to his childhood. Obama reminisced about living in a small house with a mango

tree out front, and learning to love Indonesia while flying kites, running along paddies, catching dragonflies and buying food from street vendors. He also spoke of running in fields with water buffalo and goats, and of the birth of his half-Indonesian sister, Maya. Obama, a Christian who was born in Hawaii, moved to Indonesia as a 6-year-old and lived with his mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, and Indonesian stepfather, Lolo Soetoro. He attended public and Catholic schools while in Indonesia and returned to Hawaii when he was 10 to live with his grandparents. Obama took care in his remarks to note that he is Christian; back home in the U.S., he continues to fight

erroneous perceptions that he is Muslim. Obama occasionally studied the Quran and visited a local mosque when he lived in Indonesia. But he spent hardly any time in the speech discussing Islam or his religious background, except to describe Islam as a “great world religion.” Reaching out to the Islamic world, Obama said efforts to build trust and peace are showing promise but remain incomplete. He said both sides can choose to either “be defined by our differences and give in to a future of suspicion and mistrust” or “do the hard work of forging common ground and commit ourselves to the steady pursuit of progress.”

ing Huckabee’s visit to the Clinton campus. “We look forward to his remarks about America’s political scene and other timely topics.” In addition to his political career, Huckabee, 55, is an ordained Southern Baptist minister, a best-selling author, a musician, and the host of “Huckabee,” which

airs weekends on Fox News Channel, and “Huckabee Report,” his syndicated radio show. Huckabee was chairman of the National Governors Association and the Education Commission of the States. He and his wife, Janet, live in Florida, and they have three grown children.

As a minister, Huckabee led congregations in the Pine Bluff and Texarkana areas in the 1980s and early ’90s. At the age of 34, he became the youngest president of the Arkansas State Baptist Convention. Huckabee is a bassist who has played with the likes of Willie Nelson and the Charlie Daniels Band. He plays each week in the musical segment of his show with the Fox News house band, “The Little Rockers.” Huckabee’s books have covered youth violence and health and fitness. His most recent work, “A Simple Christmas,” contains 12 holiday stories.

The banquet during which Huckabee will speak is part of MC’s campaign to raise $80 million for scholarships, academic programs, endowments and capital improvements. Steve Forbes, editorin-chief of Forbes Magazine, spoke at last year’s banquet, which raised more than $312,000. MC, a private Christian university serving more than 5,000 students, is affiliated with the Mississippi Baptist Convention. Founded in 1826, MC is the oldest institution of higher learning in the state of Mississippi and second oldest Baptist university in the nation.

The defiant ones: Difficult teens need boundaries By Beth J. Harpaz The Associated Press NEW YORK — You make rules, they break them. You ask questions, they ignore you. You say, “Do this,” they say, “Make me!” Oppositional behavior is hard enough to cope with in toddlers, but when the defiant ones are 13 or 14, you can’t just put them down for a nap or bribe them with stickers. So how does a parent get through to a kid who is acting disrespectfully? Here’s advice from three experts. • Be consistent and put the rules in writing, advises Mary Muscari, who teaches at the Decker School of Nursing at Binghamton University in New York and is a coauthor of “The Everything Guide to Raising Adolescent Girls” and “The Everything Guide to Raising Adolescent Boys.” Muscari says you might make a list of rules to hang up in the house. If you’re looking to improve a specific behavior or meet a goal, write up a contract and have your child sign it. Muscari says adolescents do “a lot of testing. ‘How much can I get away with?’ But they don’t really want to get away with things; they just want to see how far they can push their parents.” She adds: “This is a normal thing other parents are going

through. You are not crazy! It’s annoying. It’s horrible. But it’s just like when they were 2 years old and they said, ‘Wow! Look what I can do!’ Only they’re 13. They might be saying, ‘I hate you! What do you know?’ But they’re thinking, ‘Thank God you’re putting these controls on me.”’ If foul language is an issue, you might try a 25-cent fine for each curse — and make sure grown-up violators pay, too. The money could be a reward for good behavior. Muscari says encouraging teens to volunteer can also give them some perspective. “You don’t want them to be totally wrapped up in themselves,” she said. “They like to have pity parties, but it helps to see what other people are going through.”

Kids this age are not always communicative, but Muscari says car rides can offer an opportunity for parental chitchat. “They’re a captive audience; they’re not going to jump out of the car. And there’s something about not having face-to-face contact that can make it more comfortable for them.” • Establish priorities, set standards, maintain family routines and stay connected, advises Gregory Ramey, a child psychologist at the Children’s Medical Center of Dayton, Ohio. “You’ve got to choose your battles. What are the important things that really matter to me? You can’t make everything important, because then nothing is important,” Ramey says.

One thing parents should set standards for, he says, is the way kids speak. “I would never let a child talk back to me or be disrespectful,” he said. “How do you correct it when it happens? If a child crosses the line by using language you feel is inappropriate, there has to be some reasonable consequence, perhaps taking away computers or cell phones.” Ramey hosts a program for teens and tells them at the outset that swearing and terms like “Shut up,” are not allowed. Involve kids in solving problems. “You might say, ‘I get annoyed with your tone of voice and certain words you use. Maybe you don’t mean it. But you need to come up with some way where you can better control your behavior.” Finally, he says, conflicts are “less likely to happen if you’re connected to your child.” Ramey says research that shows teens who eat with their parents four times a week or more fare better than those who don’t. He also urges parents to attend plays, sporting events and anything else kids take part in. “Parents have this idea that kids don’t want them around and that is so wrong. If a teen says, ‘I don’t want you to come to this,’ go anyway,” he said. Don’t sit in the front row or cheer louder than anyone

else, but “say something when you get back, like, ‘You did really well today.”’ • Consider how brain development affects adolescent behavior, advises Dr. Joseph Shrand, psychiatrist, father of four, and medical director of CASTLE (Clean and Sober Teens Living Empowered), a new intervention unit for at-risk teens at High Point Treatment Center, Brockton, Mass. The part of the brain that controls emotions, called the limbic system, which allows us to feel pleasure, anger and passion, works just fine in adolescents. But the prefrontal cortex, the part of the brain that helps us analyze information, make decisions and anticipate consequences, is not fully developed until the mid-20s. The prefrontal cortex also gives humans the ability to appreciate how others think and feel. At age 13, therefore, “how they perceive their parents is that you are like a piece of cardboard. This kid does not necessarily have a clue how they are making you feel,” Shrand said. So when a kid treats a parent disrespectfully, it’s tempting for the adult to respond with anger. Shrand says it’s basically one emotional, limbic brain provoking the other. What’s more effective, he says, is for adults to take the high road by using persuasion or respect.

Dear Amy: Does Mars or any other planet have life? — Kavya, Kumbakonam, India Dear Kavya: The only planet that we know has life is Earth, but that won't stop scientists from searching for signs of life elsewhere. One of the things they look for is water, because it is a source of oxygen, which is essential to life on Earth. In addition, water can provide protection from UV rays. Scientists also look at the climate or clues of the past climate on a planet, because life is able to survive only in a small window of temperature. A planet can't be too hot or too cold. Since the '70s, NASA has been searching Mars for signs of life. So far, there has been no evidence of life, but it's possible that life once existed there. Billions of years ago, the surface of Mars flowed with water and was much warmer. To learn more about the possibility of life on Mars, visit www.nasa.gov/audience/forstudents/post secondary/features/mars_life_feature_ 1015.html. There are other stars and planets in the universe, so it's possible that life exists somewhere else. Visit Hunt for Alien Worlds, www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/worlds, and decide for yourself whether aliens might exist.

Pressure Cooker Chili The Food Network offers this chili recipe to add some kick to your tailgaiting festivities. •

Pressure Cooker Chili 3 pounds stew meat (beef, pork, and/or lamb) 2 teaspoons peanut oil 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt 1 (12-ounce) bottle of beer, preferably a medium ale 1 (16-ounce) container salsa 30 tortilla chips 2 chipotle peppers canned in adobo sauce, chopped 1 tablespoon adobo sauce (from the chipotle peppers in adobo) 1 tablespoon tomato paste 1 tablespoon chili powder 1 teaspoon ground cumin Place the meat in a large mixing bowl and toss with the peanut oil and salt. Set aside. Heat a 6-quart heavybottomed pressure cooker over high heat until hot. Add the meat in three or four batches and brown on all sides, approximately 2 minutes per batch. Once each batch is browned, place the meat in a clean large bowl. Once all of the meat is browned, add the beer to the cooker to de-glaze the pot. Scrape the browned bits from the bottom of the pot. Add the meat back to the pressure cooker along with the salsa, tortilla chips, chipotle peppers, adobo sauce, tomato paste, chili powder, and ground cumin and stir to combine. Lock the lid in place according to the manufacturer’s instructions. When the steam begins to hiss out of the cooker, reduce the heat to low, just enough to maintain a very weak whistle. Cook 25 minutes. Remove from the heat and carefully release the steam. Serve immediately.

Potatoes au gratin with apples a fresh take on classic dish By Alison Ladman The Associated Press This new take on the traditional potato au gratin mixes things up by adding celeriac and apples to the creamy potato dish. Celeriac is the root of the celery plant and has a distinctive celery flavor with a carrot-like texture. It is important to make sure the slices of potato and celeriac are cut to the same thickness to ensure even cooking.

Potato, Celeriac, and apple au gratin Start to finish: 2 hours (1 hour active) Servings: 10 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 4 cups whole milk 4 teaspoons Dijon mustard 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese, divided 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided Salt and ground white pepper, to taste 2 large russet potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced 1 large celeriac root, peeled, quartered and thinly sliced 3 green apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Stir in the flour and cook for 2 minutes. A little at a time, whisk in the milk. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce

Potato, celeriac and apple au gratin to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and whisk in the mustard. Stir in 1 1/2 cups of the Monterey Jack cheese and 1 1/2 cups of the cheddar cheese, stirring until melted. Season the sauce with salt and white pepper. Fill a second large saucepan with the potatoes, then add

enough water to cover. Bring to a boil and cook for 5 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove the potatoes from the water and transfer to a plate. Add the celeriac slices to the water and cook for 5 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove the celeriac from the water and transfer to a plate Heat the oven to 350 F. In a large casserole dish,

arrange an even layer of potato slices over the bottom. Top the potatoes with several spoons of cheese sauce. Add a layer of celeriac, followed by a few spoons of cheese sauce. Finally add a layer of apples, followed by a bit more cheese sauce. Continue this layering until all the ingredients are used, ending with a final layer of

Baked potato toppings add pizzazz to mashed By J.M. Hirsch AP food editor Since the holiday season is no time for sacrifice, I decided to amplify the flavor — and, consequently, the fat — of one of the meal’s most critical sides. And so I took a basic mashed potato and added some of the most popular baked potato toppings, bacon and scallions. I also considered whipping a bit of sour cream into the mix, but feared it would be too, well, sour. So I opted for an 8-ounce block of cream cheese. The result is a delicious, creamy mashed potato with enough flavor to truly shine on an otherwise crowded table of sides. If you wanted to take the taters even further, consider sprinkling them with diced jalapeños, sliced black olives or even a bit of shredded cheddar cheese.

Creamy Bacon and Scallion Potatoes Start to finish: 30 minutes Servings: 10 5-pound bag Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunks 8 strips bacon, cut into 1-inch chunks 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Banish marshmallows from sweet potato dish By Alison Ladman The Associated Press Here’s a good excuse to banish marshmallows from your repertoire. We’ve partnered the richly sweet taste of mashed sweet potatoes with the savory, salty flavor of browned sausage and onions. The result is a savory and satisfying take on a dish that too often ends up cloying and heavy.

like ‘having an expert at your elbow’

In the digital age, kitchen help is just a tweet away By The Associated Press Need to talk turkey? Baffled by Brussels sprouts? Sure, you could go old school and call a 1-800 holiday helpline. But these days, cooks are finding inspiration, or salvation as the case may be, online. From smart phone apps that put together your grocery lists to Twitter sessions that answer your pressing pumpkin questions, traditional sources of holiday help are transforming to meet the demands of a digital age. “People are just going online more and more to get their... questions answered,” says Angela Moore, vice president of FoodNetwork.com. Traffic to that site’s Thanksgiving section has been growing annually, and this month marked the launch of Food Network’s In The Kitchen app, which features 45,000 recipes from the network’s chefs, including monthly seasonal menus, which for November, naturally, will be Thanksgivingcentric. The $1.99 app, available for iPhones, iPods and iPads, (www.foodnetwork.com/ mobile) includes shopping lists that can be shared via e-mail, Facebook and Twitter, a unit converter for accurate measurements and timers that can be set in-recipe. “Basically, it’s Thanksgiving at your fingertips,” says Moore. At Food & Wine magazine, editors are holding chats on Twitter and Facebook to give readers real-time help. A Twitter session in early November was “the fastest two hours we have ever spent,” says Dana Cowin, the magazine’s editor-in-chief. “Just so many questions about perfect side dishes, smoking a turkey. I love the people who ask the questions because they ask really great questions and they were really open to new ideas.” What’s nice about the online approach, says Cowin, is that

Pumpkin produces rich roll By The Associated Press Adding squash or pumpkin to a dinner roll produces a bread that is soft, slightly sweet and wonderfully rich. It also helps keep the rolls moist, making it easier to bake them ahead without worrying they will dry out. This recipe uses canned pumpkin for ease and pumpkin seeds (also called pepitas) for a nutty-toasty crunch. Canned squash also could be used. These rolls are just as delicious served at room temperature, but if you’d like to reheat them, cover the pan with foil and pop them in the oven for 10 minutes.

Double Pumpkin Dinner Rolls Start to finish: 3 1/2 hours (30 minutes active) Makes 24 rolls 1 cup whole or reduced-fat milk 2/3 cup sugar 1 cup canned pumpkin purée 1 egg 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, room temperature 1 tablespoon instant or quickrise yeast 2 teaspoons salt 5 1/2 cups bread flour 1/2 cup pepitas, toasted 4 tablespoons melted butter In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook, combine the milk, sugar, pumpkin purée, egg, butter, yeast, salt and flour. Mix on low speed until combined, then increase speed to mediumlow and mix for 5 minutes to knead. The dough should be soft, but pull away from the sides of the bowl. If it is too sticky, add a bit more flour. Add the pepitas and mix until incorporated throughout the dough. Cover the

Double Pumpkin Dinner Rolls bowl with plastic wrap and allow to rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Coat two 9-inch cake pans with cooking spray. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and divide in two. Divide each of the halves into 12 pieces and roll each piece into a ball. Arrange 12 balls in each cake pan (they can touch), then cover with plastic wrap. Allow to rise for another 45 minutes to an hour, or until puffy. After the rolls have risen for 30 minutes, heat the oven to 350. When the rolls have fin-

ished rising, brush their tops with half of the melted butter. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden and cooked through. After removing them from the oven, brush with the remaining butter.

and Nov. 18 on Facebook. Parisi, who moderates the Food & Wine sessions, “knows our database so well and she has such strong opinions about what really is the perfect Thanksgiving dish that you have never made before,” says Cowin, adding with a laugh, “”We’re like a dating service between the person who wants to make a new recipe and the recipe that’s right for them in our archive (or database).” Meanwhile, hot line stalwarts like Butterball, which has been saving cooks from making turkeys of themselves for 30 years, also are moving online. Butterball experts are answering questions from now through the holidays on Facebook (facebook.com 1/4butterball) and Twitter (twitter.com 1/4butterball).

‘Conan’ whips rivals in viewership TBS says Conan O’Brien was welcomed back to television by more than 4.1 million viewers. The former host of “The Tonight Show,” who left NBC eight months ago, returned to late night Monday with a new talk show, “Conan,” which premiered on basic-cable network TBS. In the 10 p.m. hour, O’Brien’s opening night throttled his direct rivals on Comedy Central. “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” was seen by 1.3 million viewers, followed by “The Colbert Report” with 1 million. Conan even beat Jay Leno, the host who reclaimed the “Tonight Show” chair from him. Starting at 10:35 p.m., “Tonight” attracted 3.5 million viewers, according to Nielsen Co. figures released on Tuesday.

Rod Stewart Its attorney, Vincent Green, said he could not comment on the dismissal or whether a settlement had been reached. Stewart had denied wrongdoing in court filings. The case was slated to go to trial in January. The firm’s client roster has also included architect Frank Gehry and former game show host Bob Barker.

Man seeking drugs calls cops by mistake A New York man looking to buy drugs misdialed and got the sheriff’s “Crime Stoppers” line instead. Erie County Sheriff’s Detective Alan Rozansky said he got a call around noon Monday and answered with his usual “Crime Stoppers.” The caller apparently didn’t hear that and told Rozansky he was looking “to score” drugs. Rozansky said that he was surprised but played along and arranged a meeting with undercover officers. The officers didn’t arrest the caller but used him as an informant to lead them to another transaction taking place down the road. There, police arrested a 35-year-old woman trying to sell her prescription painkillers to a Buffalo man. The careless caller is off the hook for now.

Tina Fey thanks Palin for her success WASHINGTON (AP) — Mark Twain paid a surprise visit to the Kennedy Center on Tuesday night to honor Tina Fey with the nation’s top humor prize that bears his name. A mustached Alec Baldwin playing Twain said he thought he would be remembered for being a tender lover and was surprised to learn the prize honors top comics. “Tina, well that’s a funny name for a man,” he said, shocked to hear it was a woman who had won because “their brains aren’t shaped right.” A hundred years after the author’s death, the woman famous for her Emmy Awardwinning impression of Sarah Palin on “Saturday Night Live,” accepted the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor — even though she feels her style is “so typically Austrian.” She thanked Palin for her success and said she has it on good authority that Sen. John McCain has a picture of Fey in his office and had been getting ideas long before he picked the former Alaska governor as his running mate. “I guess what I’m saying is, this whole thing might be my fault,” she said. She also thanked the Kennedy Center, which she said will soon be known as “the Tea Party bowling alley and rifle range.” “SNL” comics lined up to celebrate their colleague’s work over nine seasons. They played clips from her time anchoring “Weekend Update” and some of the commercials she wrote, including a spoof on “mom jeans.” Amy Poehler recalled meeting Fey back when they were both part of The Second City improv group in Chicago in the 1990s. “Our dreams were as big as our unshaped eyebrows,” Poehler said.

Producer, manager vouch for Jackson song NASHVILLE (AP) — Some of Michael Jackson’s family members are unhappy with the release of the posthumous single “Breaking News.” But the late legend’s longtime producer and manager say it is indeed Jackson’s voice on the newly released track. MIchael “When I Jackson heard these songs, my heart cried hearing Michael again in good spirits. The vocals sounded very polished, very on key and processed. I have no doubts that these are Michael’s vocals,” Jackson’s longtime producer, Teddy Riley, said today in a statement to The Associated Press. “Breaking News” is the first song off “MICHAEL,” due out Dec. 14. It’s the first album of unreleased Jackson material since Jackson’s death. Representatives for Epic Records, Jackson’s label, say Jackson not only co-wrote the song in 2007 but also co-produced it with Eddie Cascio and James Porte. But Jackson’s nephews, Taryll, Taj and TJ Jackson, tweeted this week that their uncle’s voice isn’t the one featured on the song. “I KNOW my Uncle’s voice and something’s seriously wrong when you have immediate FAMILY saying it’s not him,” wrote Taryll Jackson. “Don’t you have to wonder why? I have strong, undeniable points. They can’t give me answers, yet continue to move forward with lies and deception. Sounding like Michael Jackson and BEING Michael Jackson are two different things.”

Television producer Lorne Michaels applauds Tina Fey after she was awarded the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor at the Kennedy Center in Washington Tuesday. The humor prize honors those who define contemporary comedy. Last year, it went to Bill Cosby. Organizers said Fey made her mark as the first female head writer on “SNL,” not to mention her Palin impression and creating the NBC comedy series “30 Rock,” in which she stars with Baldwin. Tracy Morgan acted unimpressed — especially that Fey was the first woman to lead the writing team. “I was the first male cast member who tried to force an unwanted kiss on the first female head writer,” he said. At 40, Fey is the youngest to be honored with the award that was created in 1998. She’s also only the third woman to receive it after Lily Tomlin and Whoopi Goldberg. Earlier, when the prize was announced, Fey hinted she didn’t feel worthy, joking that she assumed Betty White was disqualified “for steroid use.” Not to be outdone, on the red carpet, the 88-year-old White praised Fey’s “intelligence and her sense of comedy.” Then she deadpanned, “Too bad she’s not good-looking.” White also took the stage

to honor Fey. They also performed together on “SNL” in

May for which White won rave reviews as host. Steve Martin, who also has taken home the award, said Fey’s win means he’s been demoted. He said he loves Fey’s parody of Palin, but even more, he said he loves to read her writing. “Isn’t it refreshing to find a comedian who is both really good and funny looking?” he said. On the big screen, Fey recently starred with Steve Carell in “Date Night” and is a featured voice in “Megamind,” which debuted at No. 1 at last weekend’s box office. Now she is working on her first book, a memoir due out next year. She lives in New York with her husband, Jeff Richmond, and their daughter.

•2101 Clay St Robert De Niro

De Niro wins DeMille lifetime honor at Globes LOS ANGELES (AP) — They’ll be talking to — and about — Robert De Niro at next year’s Golden Globe Awards, where the actor will be honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement. De Niro will receive the honor at the Golden Globes awards ceremony Jan. 16, actor Kevin Spacey announced at a news conference Tuesday. De Niro has been nominated for eight Golden Globe Awards in both the comedy and drama categories, winning once for “Raging Bull.” He also has won two Academy Awards (for “Raging Bull” and “The Godfather: Part II”) and the Kennedy Center Honor. Before announcing De Niro’s name, Spacey — who has a gift for impersonations — gave a little clue about the winner’s identity by imitating the bemused smirk that is De Niro’s trademark. Spacey described him as being “universally acknowledged as one of the greatest actors of all time.” De Niro is also being hailed for his contributions as a director, as a producer through his Tribeca Productions, and as a co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival, which was created to help revitalize lower Manhattan after the Sept. 11, 2001, World Trade Center attacks. Previous DeMille winners include Barbra Streisand, Al Pacino, Michael Douglas, Steven Spielberg and this past year’s recipient, De Niro’s longtime friend and director Martin Scorsese. Ricky Gervais will return as the ceremony’s host. Philip Berk, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which presents the Globes, also announced that the broadcast once again will be shown live coast-to-coast from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.

Boyfriend’s cell phone fantasy could become legal nightmare Dear Abby: My boyfriend is pressuring me to take his camera cell phone with me into the girls’ locker room and take pictures of the other girls with little or nothing on. He says it has always been a “fantasy” of his, and that if I really love him I’ll help him fulfill his fantasy. He promises to keep the pictures secret and says that what the other girls don’t know won’t hurt them. He offered to do the same for me and take pictures in the boys’ locker room, but I’m not interested. I know it would be wrong to do it, and I wouldn’t want someone secretly taking pictures of me. He hinted that if I refuse he will look for another girl who will. I’m scared of losing him because I’m not much to look at, and he’s the only boy who has ever shown any interest in me. I know you’re not going to tell me to go ahead and do this, so I’m not sure why I’m

TOMORROW’S HOROSCOPE

BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Brushing your responsibilities aside, thinking that you’ll take care of them later is likely to be a mistake. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Be complimentary if someone does something worthy of praise, even if this person never applauds anybody else’s work. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — This is one of those days when it will be much better to get straight to the point and down to the purpose at hand. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — You’re likely to be pegged as being a phony if you try to use flattery in order to gain acceptance. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Do your best to keep a nosy friend out of your affairs, even if you suspect that this time s/he is just trying to be helpful. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Instead of trying to make someone over into an image of your creation, either accept this person for who s/he is, or find a new pal. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Friends won’t take kindly to you trying to take total credit for something they collectively brought about. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Don’t let the behavior of one individual take all the fun out of an involvement with friends. Put plenty of space between you and this person, relax and have a good time. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Be careful not to allow yourself to change your mind in order to please someone, especially if you know your evaluation is based on experience while his/hers isn’t. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Do not treat small, insignificant details with distain when putting together a critical agreement with another. It’s usually these bits and pieces that become all important with time. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — If you’re smart, you’ll keep your mind on what is important and forgo wasting time on frivolous activities that are more likely to cost you money than make any. Work first, play later. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Relax, let your hair down and enjoy yourself in your spare time, but don’t do so at the expense of allowing overindulgence gain the upper hand. You’ll have a better time practicing moderation.

TWEEN 12 & 20

BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: You seem to be quite intelligent, so I wonder why you still encourage teens to use abstinence as a sure-fire way to avoid the problems associated with teenage sexual activity. Maybe only a few teens were sexually active when you were a teen in Gary, Ind. (I looked up where you went to high school on your biography on the Internet), but this is 2010, and a huge percentage of today’s teens are sexually active. Instead of encouraging teens to practice abstinence, you should be promoting a safe-sex program and encouraging junior and senior high schools to distribute free condoms to all students who are sexually active or are planning to start a sexual relationship soon. I’m sure many parents would back this program. Hear me out before you consider me to be a stupid kook. Condoms are protection against unwanted pregnancies and unwanted sexually transmitted diseases. Of course, condoms are not 100 percent perfect, but they are much better than no protection at all. I’m aware that you are a former high school teacher, basketball coach and principal, and you know a lot about working with teens. I commend you for earning a doctorate’s degree in education. I enjoy your column and I am in concert with about 90 percent of your views. Now let me get back to the “before you consider me a stupid kook” part. I, too, have a doctorate’s degree in education and teach in the education department at a university in Massachusetts. Is it possible that I can convince you to change your mind on teenage sexual behavior from abstinence to condom protection? First, I don’t think you will print my e-mail. And next, I don’t think I will change your mind. — Teacher, Massachusetts. Teacher: Many times, readers — especially those who are learned scholars — can convince me to change my view on various topics. You were wrong about printing your e-mail. I enjoyed reading it. And you were right when you didn’t think I would change my mind. I might have an antiquated philosophy by encouraging teens to avoid sexual activity, but I do agree that if they are going to be sexually active, proper protection is a must! No exceptions accepted. It’s not the high school’s role to be distributing free condoms to their students. If parents want their teens to use condoms and promote safe sex, have parents hand them out to their teens — at home, free of charge. Thanks for your stimulating e-mail. It provided me the opportunity to reconfirm my view on premarital teenage sex. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service. E-mail him at rwallace@Copley News Service.

do something that could get you into serious trouble. You could be accused of creating and distributing pornographic material, and there could be legal liability. The penalty you would pay isn’t worth the “interest” he’s showing in you. Run! Dear Abby: Two friends and I recently went on a trip together. While on the trip, one of them told me she knows how old I am because she looked it up online. My reply was that a friend would ask me for that kind of information, and if I didn’t want to reveal my age she would respect my wishes. Abby, I wonder about her reason for letting me know she was looking up information about me on the Internet. Am I wrong to be upset over it? Her response was that “everyone” does it, and because I was offended she will no longer speak to me. Did I overreact? — Ageless

Texan Dear Ageless Texan: (Or should I say “formerly” ageless?) If the subject of your age came up during the trip and you expressed reluctance to reveal yours, then what the woman did was one-up you. That she would then imply that you were “wrong” to feel invaded and to no longer speak to you is her attempt to blame you for your very normal reaction. That said, along with the “blessing” of the Internet has come the sobering reality that there are enormous amounts of information about all of us on it (some true, some not), and that anyone who is curious or nosy can mine it to his or her heart’s content — which is what happened to you. And no, you did not overreact. Dear Abby: My wife and I have had a long-standing disagreement. Her family leaves the price tags on all gifts. This has caused our children to

Getting two flu shots sometimes appropriate Dear Dr. Gott: We had the H1N1 flu shot at our doctor’s office earlier this year. Now we see H1N1 is in the flu shot for this coming season. Is it safe to take it again? Or should we try and get the single flu shot if possible? Dear Reader: To my knowledge, there is no single flu shot, so I believe it is appropriate for you to receive a seasonalflu injection. My reasoning is that seasonal flu covers different strains that you wouldn’t be immunized against if you didn’t have the 2010 injection. What you received earlier this year was specifically for H1N1. To be on the safe side and because I don’t know your age, allergies or health history, you should clear this with your primary-care physician before being immunized. The swine-flu pandemic began in April 2009 and took more than 18,000 lives worldwide, according to Fox News, which also reported the governments of North America and Europe dumped their vaccines after finding their shelves were full of unused serum and supplies that were about to expire. Conservative skeptics held back and simply didn’t get immunized. France also felt the threat of a pandemic was an overestimation. Germany ended up with 34 million doses of vaccine from manufacturers, with very little used. That said, the World Health Organization believes the 2009 H1N1 viruses will continue to spread in many parts of the world for years to come. The 2010 to 2011 seasonalinfluenza vaccine will protect against the H3N2 virus, influenza B virus and the 2009 H1N1 virus. Those who had H1N1 or the vaccine last year can safely receive the seasonal-flu vaccine this year. Dear Dr. Gott: It is definitely better for some vitamins and minerals to be taken with food at mealtimes, but other food supplements must be taken on an empty stomach. You can also take smaller amounts of some vitamins and minerals between meals, with water, and get a bigger punch from them. For me, it’s better to take mineral capsules, tablets or powders with lunch or supper than it is for breakfast, when my stomach enzymes aren’t strong enough to digest them well. The minerals give me a stomachache. Also, never take a multi-B vitamin before bedtime or you won’t get to sleep. See, it all depends! Dear Reader: You certainly appear to have done your homework. I could not find confirmation for some of your claims, such as multi-B at bedtime causing insomnia; however, each of us responds differently to medication, even over-the-counters. Remember that vitamins and minerals are essential nutrients, but the body typically only requires small amounts of them. Readers should speak with their

GOTT

physicians before beginning a regimen, because a well-balanced, nutritious diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables will likely be all that is required to maintain good health. Furthermore, read labels to determine whether a medication or supplement should be taken with food or without, or in the morning or at bedtime.

expect that I spend the same amount on them for Christmas and birthdays. I feel they have become materialistic and have lost the meaning behind the gifts. My family never left the price tags on, and I feel that doing so is tacky. What’s your opinion? — $$$ in Hammond, Ill. Dear $$$: I agree with you.

Leaving the price tag on a gift IS tacky.

Swinford sets letter jacket policy St. Aloysius soccer begins rebuilding By Ernest Bowker ebowker@vicksburgpost.com

Athletes at Vicksburg High and Warren Central will be allowed to wear their letterman’s jacket to functions at the opposing school under a new school district policy announced Tuesday. Vicksburg Warren School District superintendent Elizabeth Duran Swinford said the new policy, which replaces separate standards at each school, is intended to foster a spirit of unity among the two schools. “One of the things I’m trying to bring up is a strong sense of community. We are one school district, with one superintendent, one community. The fact we have two high schools doesn’t change

that,” Swinford said. “We have to allow family and friends to visit each other and celebrate with each other.” Dr. Elizabeth The issue Duran Swinford came to the forefront last week, when two Vicksburg High basketball players were turned away from Warren Central’s “Meet the Vikings” event. Swinford said the players were denied entry because they were wearing their VHS letterman’s jacket, which violates Warren Central’s dress code for school functions. Vicksburg High had a separate policy that allowed students from other schools

to wear their colors while attending its “Meet the Gators” pep rallies. Swinford said Warren Central’s policy was an old one originally intended to avoid confrontations between students at opposing schools. It had carried over through the years and rarely been broached. Warren Central’s policy did not extend to actual sporting events or public functions like plays and band competitions, just school-specific functions like “Meet the Vikings.” “It’s one of those unspoken rules that nobody realizes until it’s challenged,” Swinford said. On Tuesday, Swinford met

Warren Central’s Beau Wallace, right, tries to tackle Clinton’s Keonté Harper earlier this season. The Vikings finished 2-9 and were tied for last place with Murrah in the final Region 2-6A standings.

WC struggles don’t sit well By Jeff Byrd jbyrd@vicksburgpost.com GRENADA — It will be a long off-season for Warren Central’s first-year coach Josh Morgan. The Vikings wrapped up one of the most disappointing seasons in a generation with Friday’s 15-10 loss at Grenada. Warren Central finished 2-9 and 1-6 in Region 2-6A play, putting it in a tie for last place with Murrah, which won one game this season. WC’s lone region win came at Murrah, 14-13. The end result does not sit well with the younger Morgan, who grew up in the Warren Central program as his dad, Robert, led the Vikings to a pair of state titles in 1988 and 1994. Following the Grenada loss, Morgan knows two areas he must address when the Viking underclassmen met for the first time in the offseason. “The two things that stick out that we must address is toughness and spirit,” Morgan said. “We were just not physical enough.

prep football We lacked toughness. We also lacked a certain spirit at times — a lack of desire. From now until we start spring practice, we’re going to look at everything.” The bad news for the Vikings is that they will lose their two biggest playmakers, senior quarterback Beau Wallace and wide receiver Malcolm Grant. Grant came just two receptions from tying the Warren Central single-season receiving record of 43 catches held by Cordell Valentine, who just finished his sophomore season at Hinds Community College. Grant had four catches for 142 yards and one score against Grenada and finished the season with 40 catches for 766 yards and five touchdowns this season. Grant might have gotten the record, but tight coverage from Grenada’s Cedric Tillman didn’t allow it. “That No. 4 (Tillman) played some pretty good coverage,” Grant said. “He stuck

with me.” Grant’s last big moment in a Viking uniform came with three minutes left, when he broke out from a screen pass for a 65-yard touchdown that made it 15-10. “We ran a little pop screen,” Grant said. “It took a while to get some going.” The touchdown was Wallace’s sixth of the season. He finished with 1,223 yards passing, the highest singleseason total in six years. That is a problem considering Warren Central is known for its strong running game. Against Grenada, the

Vikings had anemic 50 yards on 24 carries. A lot of that was due to playing without fullback Austin Roberts, who was out with a high ankle sprain. Injuries plagued the Warren Central running game all season. Shon Jackson went down with a second knee injury in mid-season. The lack of a consistent running game is another area that Morgan must address. Even the pass-happy catching Grant, thinks so. “We need to be a more balanced offense,” Grant said. “I think our defense has a chance to be real good next year. We just need more balanced on offense.” Morgan says the offensive issues will be addressed. “We’re going to need to sit and take this one in,” Morgan said. “It’s been a disappointing season, to say the least. It seemed like we had missed opportunities all season. Tonight, we had two golden chances to start the game and instead turned it over twice in the red zone. That stuff has been contagious to us this year. We’ve got a lot to address.”

JACKSON — The jury is still out whether this will be the best defensive team in Gators coach Dellie C. Robinson’s 19-year tenure at Vicksburg High. On Tuesday night at Wingfield’s gym, the Gators (2-0) were quite good. They embarrassed the Falcons, who finished 30-1 last year and were ranked No. 1 for most of the regular season, 70-44. The Falcons (0-1) had no answers for the Gators’ suffocating, half-court man-to-man defense. “My team in 2003 was probably my best defensive team,” Robinson said of his state championship club led by D.J. Jones. “This group can be that good. There was no doubt, it was an outstanding defensive job for 28 minutes. We got tired at the end, but until then, it was super.” Wingfield trailed by 34 points going into the fourth quarter. Through three quarters, the Falcons made just 11 of 43 shots. And with every miss, the Gators were able to block out and get the rebound. The Gators’ front court of South Alabama signee Mychal Ammons and cat-quick forwards Josh Gaskin and Kienta Ross all had double-digit rebounding games. “We’ve made a lot of improvement on defense because we play well together,” said Ammons, who finished with 31 points, 11 rebounds and four blocked shots. “Kienta and Josh can cover so much ground it makes it easy for me to take chances.” That’s the plan, said Gaskin. “We want Mike to have an easy night,” Gaskin said. “The defense was good tonight. It’s not perSee Gators, Page D4.

Auburn quarterback Cameron Newton celebrates a 24-17 win over LSU earlier this season.

Chizik defends Newton AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — The Auburn Tigers found themselves defending quarterback Cam Newton for the second time in five days, this time adamantly sticking up for the Heisman hopeful in the wake of allegations of academic cheating when he was at Florida. More accusations surfaced Tuesday night when ESPN reported on its website that Newton and his father each had a phone conversation with a Mississippi State recruiter that acknowledged a payfor-play arrangement for the prized recruit. Hours before ESPN posted the story, Tigers coach Gene Chizik dismissed the academic cheating report as “pure garbage” in an emotional 4-minute, 25-second rant. “I’m standing up here on a very important week trying to defend something that’s garbage,” Chizik said. The second-ranked Tigers face rival Georgia on Saturday, and that’s where Newton insists his focus lies. Foxsports.com reported Monday that Newton was caught cheating three times and was to appear for a hearing in front of Florida’s Student Committee facing possible expulsion during the spring semester of 2009. According to the ESPN report, one of the recruiters said Cecil Newton told him before Cam Newton committed to Auburn that it would take “more than a scholarship” for his son to attend Mississippi State. An unidentified source told ESPN that another recruiter received a phone call from an emotional Cam Newton after he committed to the Tigers, when he said his father selected Auburn for him because “the money was too much.” ESPN, citing two other unidentified sources close to the football program, also reported Mississippi State compliance officials relayed the alleged conversations to Southeastern Conference com-

College Football pliance officials in January. Newton transferred from Florida to Blinn Junior College in Brenham, Texas, where he played last season. He declined to discuss the Foxsports.com report, which came on the heels of former Mississippi State quarterback John Bond saying someone claiming to represent the Newton family sought money during his recruitment by the school. “I’m not going to entertain something that took place not three months, not six months, not a year but two years ago,” Newton said. “I’m not going to sit up here and say anything about it, whether I did or did not do it, because I don’t want to beat a dead horse talking about it. It’s not going to affect me any way, shape or fashion.” It didn’t against FCS opponent Chattanooga last weekend, when he passed for four touchdowns and 317 yards, all in the first half. Georgia coach Mark Richt is expecting Newton’s best again. “All that stuff was swirling last week and it didn’t bother him,” Richt said. “Usually when a guy starts playing ball or even practicing ball, it doesn’t matter what’s going on away from the field. That’s a haven for an athlete. He gets a chance to be in his element and shut everything out, shut the world out, just go have fun and play some ball.” Newton has denied doing anything wrong in his recruitment. A person familiar with the situation has told The Associated Press that the university has received no letter of inquiry from the NCAA and that an internal review of phone and e-mail records showed no contact with Kenny Rogers, whom ESPN.com cited as the man who approached Bond. The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity

because he wasn’t authorized to publicly discuss the matter, said the university also found nothing improper in the personal and church bank records of Newton’s father, an Atlanta pastor. Minutes before Cam Newton addressed the media Tuesday, Chizik used his opening statement for a lengthy defense of his biggest star. He declined to answer questions about the academic situation. “I’m wasting my time addressing allegations that blow my mind that they’re even out there, because there’s federal privacy laws that dictate that these things don’t get out in public,” he said. Chizik described Newton as a “great human being that comes from a great family” and backed up his quarterback’s Heisman Trophy credentials as well as his character. “He’s one of the leaders in the Heisman race because he deserves it. That’s a fact,” Chizik said. Auburn athletic director Jay Jacobs also defended Newton from the latest accusation in a strongly worded statement. He reiterated that the quarterback is eligible. “These allegations and rumors about Cam Newton are unfortunate and sad because they seem intent on tearing down the reputation of a young man who has done everything we’ve asked him to do,” Jacobs said. “Cam has been and continues to be completely honest with us. Cam is, by all accounts, a great kid.” Foxsports.com reported that Newton turned in another student’s paper with his name on it and handed in another paper that was later found to have been purchased off the Internet. Jacobs said he couldn’t talk about Newton’s academic records because that would violate privacy laws. “We will not go down that path or stoop to that level as others have apparently done,” he said, adding “emphatically” that he remains eligible.

Concussion effects linger for Masoli By David Brandt The Associated Press OXFORD — As Ole Miss makes its final push to become bowl eligible for the third straight season, the Rebels are trying to determine who will start at quarterback against Tennessee on Saturday. Jeremiah Masoli, who suffered a concussion in a 43-21 victory over Louisiana-Lafayette last weekend, practiced some on Tuesday but hasn’t been cleared for contact. “You can tell he took a pretty good hit,” coach Houston Nutt said. “He had some pretty bad headaches on Sunday, threw up a little bit. You just like his attitude because you know he wants to be out there. But we’ve got to go by what the doctors say.” Masoli suffered the concussion late in the first quarter Saturday night, taking a hard hit on a 6-yard touchdown run. The senior actually played the next offensive series, throwing a 15-yard touchdown pass,

before trainers realized he had concussion symptoms and pulled him from the game. Masoli stayed after Jeremiah Tuesday’s Masoli practice for extra work with the receivers. He wasn’t made available for interviews. Nutt said he didn’t have a deadline for making a decision about who will start when Ole Miss (4-5, 1-4 Southeastern Conference) faces Tennessee (3-6, 0-5) on Saturday at Neyland Stadium. The Rebels must win at least three of their final four games to become bowl eligible. Ole Miss trainer Tim Mullins said Masoli would undergo a battery of tests each day this week, checking for headaches, nausea, sensitivity to light, irritability, sleeping patterns and balance. Tennessee coach Derek

Dooley said he’d be surprised if Masoli doesn’t play, and that his presence makes the Rebels’ offense difficult to defend because of his ability to run or pass. “Well, there’s no way you can cheat against them,” Dooley said. “When I say cheat, I mean a lot of teams, depending on their formation, the down and distance and their personnel, you have a pretty good feel for what they’re going to do. Doesn’t mean you’re going to stop it, but you can at least go out there with a plan. “Here, these guys run a bunch of formations. There’s no real continuity in their plays.” Sophomore Nathan Stanley subbed for Masoli against Louisiana-Lafayette, completing 6 of 14 passes for 108 yards. But the Rebels stuck mostly to the ground, and running backs Brandon Bolden and Enrique Davis combined for 254 yards rushing. “I felt like I could have been a lot better,” Stanley said. “I

felt really, I guess rusty is the word.” Stanley was the starter all through spring and summer workouts before Masoli transferred to Ole Miss in early August. The 6-foot-5 sophomore from Tahlequah, Okla., is more of a pro-style quarterback than Masoli, with a strong, accurate arm, but limited mobility in the pocket. Nutt said Stanley’s presence on the field creates a “drastic” difference in the offense, with the Rebels leaning on play-action passing instead of Masoli’s strength, which is the option and creating havoc with his ability to run. Nutt compared Stanley to the team’s quarterback the previous two seasons, Jevan Snead, who was almost strictly a pocket passer. “We went back to more play-action, more run game, up underneath the center a little more,” Nutt said. “So it’s just a little bit different type of pace.”

Reserves preserve Hornets’ perfection NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Jerryd Bayless nailed a 15-foot jumper, the Clippers called timeout and Chris Paul sprinted off the bench to give Bayless a soaring shoulder bump. After a shaky first few outings with New Orleans, Bayless was suddenly taking over a game in the fourth quarter, much like the three-time AllStar he backs up. Bayless had 15 points and nine assists, fellow reserve guard Willie Green scored 19 points, and the Hornets remained unbeaten with a 101-82 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday night. “It was just, like, finally,” said Bayless, a third-year pro acquired in a trade four days before the opener. Bayless, a former first-round pick, was shooting 29 percent and averaging 2.2 points coming in. “You could see the frustration in his face at times because he knows how to play and sometimes it’s not going as well as he’d like,” Paul said. “So I was just happy to see him smiling and playing well, because we’re going to need that all season long.”

nba With Paul on the bench, Bayless and Green took over in the fourth quarter, combining to score the Hornets’ first 19 points to put New Orleans up 89-69. Green had 15 points in the final period, while Bayless had 11. Their play allowed Paul to sit for the entire quarter. Together, Green and Bayless were 10 of 12 from the field in the final period and 5-of-5 from the free throw line for 26 points. Marco Belinelli had 11 points for the Hornets, who shot 50.6 percent overall and 50 percent (8-of-16) from 3-point range. New Orleans also continued to play solid defense, creating 25 turnovers that led to 35 points. Paul and West each had three steals. Paul had 13 points and eight assists for New Orleans, which is off to a franchise-best 7-0 start. Elsewhere in the NBA on Tuesday night, it was Indiana 144, Denver 113; Cleveland 93, new Jersey 91; Milwaukee 107, New York 80; Portland 100, Detroit 78; and the Los Angeles Lakers 99, Minnesota 94.

Millsap, Jazz hand Heat home loss MIAMI (AP) — Dwyane Wade had 39 points. LeBron James had a triple-double. The Miami Heat had a 22-point lead. The Utah Jazz were unimpressed on all counts. Paul Millsap scored a careerhigh 46 points — 11 coming in the final 28 seconds of regulation as Utah rallied from eight down — and the Jazz stunned the Heat 116-114 in overtime on Tuesday night. “I guess when it rains, it pours,” Millsap said. Utah never led by more than three points, which didn’t matter. The Jazz had more than enough at the end, and Francisco Elson’s free throws with 0.4 seconds left won it. “At some point in the year, unfortunately, we have to go through something like this,”

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. It’s still early, but Utah can make an argument for being the NBA’s comeback kings so far. The Jazz rallied from 18 points down to beat the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday night, and dug themselves an even bigger hole this time around, trailing by 22 in the second quarter and 51-32 at halftime while getting run out of Miami’s building. Deron Williams had 21 points and 14 assists before fouling out late in regulation, and Andrei Kirilenko scored 16 — including a 3-pointer with 1:50 remaining, after which the Jazz wouldn’t trail again. “It’s speechless, to be down like that to a team like this and to come out with a win,” Millsap said. “We clawed our

with athletic director Lum Wright, principals and assistant principals from both Vicksburg and Warren Central, as well as their respective junior high schools to come up with a standardized policy. Under the new rule, students from Vicksburg High will be allowed to attend future “Meet the Vikings” events at Warren Central — and vice versa — provided they adhere to a written code of conduct. Athletes participating in sports in the Mississippi High School Activities Association must already sign a form promising they will follow the code of conduct. Swinford said athletes in the Vicksburg Warren School District will sign another form when they receive their letterman’s jacket. “They already have to sign that. We think we should take that a little notch above,” Swinford said, adding that few behavior problems at sporting events had been atributed to athletes. “Our athletes are our lowest number of referrals. They already know they should be good examples.” Swinford also said athletes will have a more formal ceremony to receive their letterman’s jackets. It’s part of an effort to remind athletes what is expected of them, she said. The school district provides the jackets when an athlete has earned his or her varsity letter. “We’re just going to start creating an awareness that they’ll exhibit sportsmanship on and off the field,” Swinford said.

still has. “It’s trying, but I think I’m doing all right adjusting,” Channell said. “One of the biggest things is just going to practice not as a trainer, but having to conduct it. Then if somebody gets hurt I have to go back into trainer mode.” Despite a roster that includes no seniors, two juniors, and nearly a dozen seventh- and eighth-graders, Channell wasn’t shy about preparing her team for another playoff run. In addition to division foes Madison-St. Joe — which beat St. Al in the North State championship game last season — and GreenvilleSt. Joe, the Lady Flashes will play a pair of Class 5A schools, Brookhaven and Pearl, and perennial power St. Andrew’s.

way out of it. But this says a lot about our team.” Wade’s 39 came on 12-of23 shooting. James finished with 20 points, 14 assists and 11 rebounds for his 29th tripledouble, the seventh that came in a loss. Chris Bosh scored 17, James Jones added 11 and Carlos Arroyo had 10 for the Heat, who gave up a staggering 84 points after halftime. Miami still led 98-90 with a half-minute left before Millsap caught fire: He hit a trio of 3-pointers, then grabbed the rebound of CJ Miles’ miss from the left corner and scored at the end of regulation to give Utah another 5 minutes. Millsap, who finished 19 of 28 from the field, had been a 2-for-20 shooter from 3-point range in his career — then went 3 for 3 against Miami.

Tupelo tournament, St. Al will face Class 6A schools Tupelo and Starkville, then have a playoff rematch with Class 3A Corinth. Channell said the loaded schedule stemmed from a belief that her team, young as it is, can be a contender this season. “We are rebuilding, but at the same time I’m very competitive and the girls I have are very competitive. So I think we can compete now,” Channell said. “People think I’m crazy because I stacked the schedule in the fall to be ready for the playoffs.” While the Lady Flashes begin their rebuilding process, the boys team is looking to take the next step in theirs.

Utah Jazz forward Paul Millsap (24) drives past Miami’s Chris Bosh in the second half Tuesday. Millsap, a former Louisiana Tech star, scored 46 points as the Jazz defeated the Heat 116-114 in overtime.

the Flashes scored only a handful of goals in a winless 2009-10 season. Now, a year older, bigger and more experienced, some of the young players that took their lumps last season are thinking things can turn around this year. “Losing guys like Adam Thornton, Steven (Mazzanti) and Richard Cowart was hard. That was where all our goals came from. We didn’t have much skill. I think we’ll be a lot better this year,” said freshman midfielder Blake Hudson, who is entering his third varsity season. “We’ve made a lot of improvements on ball-handling and shooting. Hall (Banks) is a great goal keeper. I think we’ll be better all around.”

fect yet, we still have a lot of work to do. I’ve been able to improve my slide step and I’ve gotten better at help and recover. Me and Kienta do what they ask us to do.” Gaskin finished with 12 points, 10 rebounds and two blocks. Ross added 11 rebounds, four points and two assists. Wingfield was held scoreless for the first four minutes. The Gators took advantage by getting four free throws from Dominique Brown and Ammons, along with two baskets by Ross, to take a 16-6 lead after one quarter. Wingfield made just 3 of 14 shots in the second quarter and trailed 38-14 at the half. Wingfield still trailed by 34 with three minutes left when Robinson subbed out his starters. The Falcons managed some garbage time baskets late to cut it to the final

JACKSON (AP) — Three Murrah High School basketball players have sued their coach and the school system over alleged whippings. The lawsuit was filed Tuesday in federal court in Jackson by attorney Lisa Ross. Ross contends that a video clip shows a basketball player bent over as a man swings a belt, hitting him three times. The video was made available to Jackson media outlets. Ross said the man in the video, which was recorded on a cell phone, is Murrah basketball coach Marlon Dorsey. In the lawsuit, which gives only one side of the legal argument, the players contend they were physically and verbally abused by the coach. Dorsey, who has admitted to whipping players, has been on leave since late October. On Oct. 28, school and district officials met with about 30 parents about the matter, but there has been no official word from JPS on Dorsey’s status. Corporal punishment has been banned in Jackson Public Schools since 1991. District policy says violation of that rule is punishable by disciplinary action such as suspension without pay and termination. The lawsuit alleges a violation of the basketball players’ constitutional rights, and accuses the defendants of invasion of privacy and infliction of emotional distress. The lawsuit seeks unspecified compensatory and punitive damages. In a statement give The Clarion-Ledger earlier, Dorsey said, “I took it upon myself to save these young men from the destruction of self and what society has accepted and become silent to the issues our students are facing on a daily basis. I am deeply remorseful of my actions to help our students.”

Wingfield (1-0) took advantage by building an 18-point halftime lead and then swapped baskets with the Missy Gators in the second half. The closest Vicksburg got was 14 points. Shelly Griffith had a gamebest 18 points, 16 of which came in the first half and 12 coming off 3-pointers as the Missy Gators left plenty of open spaces for the Lady Falcons to shoot. D’Kirah Atkinson and Shequilla Morris had 10 points each to lead Wingfield.
