State budget writers’ plan would tap reserves By Emily Wagster Pettus The Associated Press JACKSON — Mississippi could deplete a big portion of its financial reserves during the budget year that begins

July 1. Legislative leaders agreed Wednesday on a preliminary estimate of how much the state might spend. The $5.4 billion budget estimate includes nearly $88 mil-

lion from the state’s rainy day fund and $56.2 million from a health care trust fund. That’s about half the balance for each of those two funds. Even as they continue to draw on financial reserves,

budget writers say they’re still likely to cut funding for many state services because revenue remains anemic as the economy slowly recovers. Democratic Rep. Steve Holland of Plantersville said

taking millions of dollars from the rainy day fund and the health care trust fund will help mitigate the cuts. “It totally reminds me of

The conviction of a former Warren County deputy after a recent jury trial has rendered a number of criminal cases in which he was the lead investigator “unprosecutable,” court documents show. London Williams, 40, 4425 Nailor Road, was found guilty of incest Nov. 2 after a London two-day Williams trial in Warren County Circuit Court. Williams had been an investigator with the sheriff’s department from January 2008 until June, his second stint with the department, and had held other local law enforcement positions going back to 2003. “Unfortunately, due to the nature of the conviction and the information we have about the results of his polygraph, we can’t put London Williams on the stand as a credible witness,” said Assistant District Attorney Dewey Arthur. “The credibility of law enforcement is critical to these cases. We have no choice.” Arthur said numerous cases will be affected. But prosecutors, with a heavy trial schedule in recent weeks, do not yet have an exact number. In court Nov. 9, Circuit Judge Isadore Patrick granted motions from the district attorney to drop prosecution of two Vicksburg men accused of armed robbery and conspiracy to commit a felony.

Bond at $1.5M each for Southern Miss shootings suspects HATTIESBURG (AP) — Bond has been set at $1.5 million each for two people arrested as accessories in the shooting of three University of Southern Mississippi football players outside a Hattiesburg nightclub early Sunday. Cleothus Wilkerson, 25, and Patricia L. Brown, 49, both of Bassfield, appeared Wednesday in Forrest County Justice Court. Judge George Schmidt set their bond at $500,000 on each of three counts of accessory after the fact to aggravated assault — for a total of $1.5 million bond for each. The two were returned to the Forrest County jail after the brief hearing. No trial date has been set. Court officials said they

did not know if the two had attorneys. Authorities were still looking for Travis Brown, originally of Prentiss but listing a Purvis address, who is wanted on three counts of aggravated assault. He is Patricia Brown’s son, reports have said. Meanwhile, Hattiesburg Mayor Johnny DuPree said Tuesday the city is suspending the operating license of Remington’s Hunt Club. Martez Smith, 22, of Canton, Tim Green, 21, of Columbia, S.C., and Deddrick Jones, 23, of Bastrop, La., were shot in the parking lot after the club closed. The three players remain hospitalized. Hattiesburg police have said officers were called to the club 129 times between January

and September of this year. No arrests were made as a result of those calls. DuPree said the license suspension will be in effect for 30 days. It will not affect other businesses in the area. The club’s owner has 10 days to appeal and request a hearing with the city council. “Martez (Smith) is paralyzed right now from the waist down,” football coach Larry Fedora said Tuesday. “We are hopeful that that may change one day in the future.” A person speaking to the AP on the condition of anonymity Tuesday said that Smith’s spinal cord is severed, and that Green was shot in the neck and Jones in the chest.

Landrieu won’t budge on White House pick Journalist: Cops ordered U.S. senator says new rules needed for offshore drilling no photos of burned body NEW ORLEANS (AP) — U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu said Wednesday the Obama administration needs to make new rules for offshore drilling in the Gulf of Mexico more clear before she will stop blocking the nomination of the White House’s federal budget director. In September, Landrieu, D-La., blocked the nomination of Jacob Lew to head the Office of Management and Budget to protest the administration’s six-month moratorium on deepwater oil and gas drilling in the Gulf. Even though the moratorium was lifted Oct. 12, Landrieu said she remained displeased with new rules for drilling operations. The new drilling rules are meant to prevent another catastrophic blowout like the April 20 explosion at a BP oil well off the Louisiana coast that led to the release of more than 200 million gallons of crude. The new rules focus on making sure blowout preventers work properly. In the case of the BP explosion, the blowout preventer failed to shut off the leaking well as it was designed to. Also, the new rules require companies to

‘I understand that it is important for this country to have a budget director, but this industry is probably the most important, and the most important economic driver, in all of Louisiana.’

Melissa Schwartz, an agency spokeswoman, said the government had received only one deepwater drilling permit application for a new well since Oct. 12. “We are approving permits as expeditiously as is safely possible,” Schwartz said. Lew, who also served as OMB chief during the Clinton administration, was approved by the Senate Budget Committee and had appeared headed for easy confirmation by the full Senate. President Barack Obama nominated him in July after former OMB director Peter Orszag resigned. But under Senate rules, one senator can object to a nominee or a bill advancing to the Senate floor. It takes 60 votes to overcome such an objection. Kenneth Baer, an OMB spokesman, said he expected Lew’s nomination would reach the Senate floor soon. He declined to offer details. “Senators from both parties and across the political spectrum voted overwhelmingly for Lew in two different Senate committees, he is eminently qualified for the job,” Baer said.

Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La. be prepared for worst-case oil spill scenarios. But Landrieu said she would continue to block Lew’s nomination until the Interior Department fixes “the regulatory nightmare” hindering deepwater drilling. She said companies were struggling to interpret what the new rules required. “I’m not asking to be easy on the oil and gas companies, I’m not asking to give blanket permits, I’m asking for clarity of the new regulatory regime,” Landrieu said during a teleconference with reporters upon her return from a trip to the Netherlands, where she looked for lessons to take home to Louisiana from the Dutch model of living below sea level. “I understand that it is

important for this country to have a budget director, but this industry is probably the most important, and the most important economic driver, in all of Louisiana,” Landrieu said. “We are asking for clarity, transparency and a statement of support for this industry,” Landrieu said of the Obama administration. “So far that hasn’t been completely delivered.” Since the moratorium was lifted, the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement has not approved a single permit for a new deepwater well. But since June 8, the agency has approved 14 new permits to drill in shallower waters. Shallower water wells also must comply with new regulations.

Louisiana abortion clinics sue over state law BATON ROUGE (AP) — A third challenge to Louisiana’s new abortion-clinic laws was filed Wednesday in Baton Rouge federal court. Five abortion clinics in Baton Rouge, New Orleans, Metairie and Bossier City allege in their civil suit that state regulatory officials now can shut them down for any alleged violation before they can appeal that decision. “Unlike a hospital and some other licensed medical facilities, an outpatient abortion facility no longer has the right to a suspensive appeal,” the plaintiffs claim in their lawsuit assigned to U.S. District Judge James J. Brady. “Thus, if the outpatient abortion facility files an administrative appeal, it will still be deprived of its license, cannot operate, and cannot generate

who do not perform abortions, the clinics allege in that pending suit. The clinics also allege in that suit that another new law unconstitutionally requires women about to undergo abortions to have ultrasound examinations and receive notice that they are entitled to photographs of those images. Chief U.S. District Judge Ralph E. Tyson initially granted a temporary restraining order against enforcement of those two new laws. But Tyson dissolved that order a week later after both sides agreed that state officials must provide the affected women with a list of facilities that provide free ultrasound services. Both sides also agreed the women cannot be compelled to receive an ultrasound image.

Attorneys for the clinics said in the suit the new law violates the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution ‘by treating outpatient abortion facilities differently than all other medical facilities.’ revenue to avoid bankruptcy during the pendency of the appeal,” the plaintiffs alleged. Attorneys for the clinics said in the suit the new law violates the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution “by treating outpatient abortion facilities differently than all other medical facilities.” The suit was filed by Delta Clinic of Baton Rouge; Choice Inc. of Texas, doing business as Causeway Medical Clinic in Metairie; Bossier City Medical Suite Inc. in Bossier City; and

two New Orleans clinics, Midtown Medical LLC and Women’s Health Care Center Inc. A sixth plaintiff is a physician identified only as John Doe, M.D. The same clinics and a sixth in Shreveport, Hope Medical Group for Women, sued the state in August over two other alleged unconstitutional elements of Louisiana’s new abortion laws. One of those laws bans abortion doctors from participation in a state-run medical malpractice fund available to physicians

Sherman, Blue Springs to annex near Toyota plant SHERMAN (AP) — Two northeast Mississippi towns are hoping to expand their city limits to make the most of their proximity to Toyota. Officials with the towns of Sherman and Blue Springs said in Tupelo that they are taking steps to secure separate parcels of land near the Toyota plant. Sherman Mayor Ben Logan said his city wants to annex 1,500 acres or roughly two square miles in portions of

Lee, Union and Pontotoc Counties. Logan said it would be ideal for residential, commercial and industrial development. “It will take one large development either at the Highway 9 and Highway 78 intersection or anywhere else or a residential type development that will cause the flood gates to open,” Logan said. Logan hopes to adopt an annexation ordinance by January and get public hearings

held. He said the annexation is important because it will enable the city to zone the areas for appropriate construction projects. Neighboring Blue Springs is working on its own proposal. “The city’s plans are in the very preliminary stages but, we need to protect this land because we might need to use it in the future,” Blue Springs Town Clerk Jan Musgrove said.

Musgrove said while discussions continue, the town would want to have land close to the Toyota plant among other areas. The Toyota plant at Blue Springs is scheduled to open in the fall of 2011 to build Corolla sedans. Toyota has said the plant will have about 2,000 employees once it hits full operation in 2012.

The pain remains “I think anyone who tries to commit suicide comes to a wall where they tried everything else and they don’t believe anything will work and they’re just done,” said John Tingley, Iraq and Afghanistan war veteran, in the short film, “A Simple Question.” The war in Afghanistan began in 2001. The second gulf war in Iraq began in 2003. The number of U.S. casualties in those wars is easily attainable. What is less attainable is the number of veterans whose scars and hurts, less visible, lead them to thoughts of suicide. The death toll on the field continues as these wars slog on. Perhaps what we can remember is that for some combat veterans, the war never ends. And the country has a continuing obligation that must be met where they are concerned. Between 2005 and 2009, 1,100 U.S. servicemen and women

killed themselves. In fiscal year 2009, there were 1,621 suicide attempts by men and 247 by women who served in Iraq or Afghanistan, with 94 men and four women dying. Another stat we’ve come across has about 18 veteran suicides a day, though veterans who seek help through the Department of Veterans Affairs are less likely to be among these. And this is a figure that simply says that the VA and other organizations must redouble their efforts to reach all such veterans. We know the VA and others are already doing much. The Zablocki Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Milwaukee, for instance, has Iraq and Afghan veteran outreach teams that make a real effort to connect veterans the help they need. The Army in July 2009 launched a $50 million study of suicide and mental health of about 500,000

service members, which can have implications for veterans. But in October, the Army began what we believe is an even more important study to determine which suicide prevention programs work and which don’t. Getting this answer is crucial. It is crucial for veterans like Tingley and others depicted in a short film that should be required viewing. Produced by the Greater Los Angeles VA Suicide Prevention Program, “A Simple Question” takes a look, in two parts, at three Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans who have attempted suicide. They are from Los Angeles, but we’re guessing their stories could be told just about anywhere combat veterans reside. Here’s our simple question: Will this country pull out all the stops to help veterans like these? The answer must be yes.

Democrat Gov. Bredesen offers way past health care war Instead of waging nonstop war over Obamacare, Republicans and Democrats should fix it — and a Democratic governor has ideas about how to do it. Phil Bredesen, a former health care executive who’s finishing eight years as governor of Tennessee, saved his state from Medicaidinduced bankruptcy and emerged as a critic of the health care reform bill that his party and president pushed through Congress this year. He’s written a book, “Fresh Medicine: How to Fix Reform and Build a Sustainable Health Care System,” that could form the basis of a bipartisan rewrite of Obamacare. As matters now stand, Republicans plan to try to repeal the 2010 health reform law, which President Barack Obama will veto. Then, the GOP will try to defund or otherwise block aspects of its implementation, creating more of the uncertainty that Republicans say the plan has caused for struggling businesses. And the battle is likely to go on into and through the 2012 elections — possibly with no resolution even then. Bredesen’s plan has aspects that



Instead of wrangling incessantly over the GOP demands to “repeal and replace” Obamacare and Obama’s offer to merely “tweak” it, Congress ought to reform the reform.

should appeal to both parties. For Democrats, it’s universal and comprehensive, guaranteeing basic health care for everyone, financed through a trust fund akin to Social Security. For Republicans, it includes vouchers, offers free choice of health care plans, replaces Medicare and Medicaid, and limits medical malpractice awards. And, for both parties (and the country), it saves lots and lots of money — $4 trillion in the year that the plan is fully in place and $25 trillion over a 15-year implementation period, assuming health care spending is reduced from the present 17 percent of gross domestic product and capped at 14 percent.

There are controversial elements to it, for sure — a legislated ceiling on how much the plan can cost and a steeply progressive set of taxes to pay for it, including a 20 percent payroll tax up to $500,000 of income and a 10 percent income tax surcharge. Moreover, the government would have to borrow $6 trillion to $7 trillion over 15 years to provide seed capital for the trust fund. But Bredesen contends that, for average Americans, the taxes would cost less than they pay in lost wages for health insurance. The borrowed money would be paid back — and the system would keep the country from going broke paying for health care.

Bredesen agrees with many Republicans that “the fundamental problem with our health care system is that we have systematically removed the tension between buyer and seller that makes economics work.” That is, it’s not a true market system. Patients with insurance have no idea what any procedure costs. Providers can jack up fees to the limit of an insurer’s willingness to pay. And insurers fundamentally are just intermediaries, passing costs on to employers. In the meantime, the per capita cost of health care in the United States is double that of any other industrialized country, about 20 million people will remain uncovered even when Obama’s new law takes effect and the United States ranks 28th among developed countries in infant mortality and 16th in female life expectancy. Bredesen wants to base reform on rigorously researching best practices, raising quality, measuring performance, telling consumers how providers rate and letting them choose which provider group they want to sign up with. He envisions the creation of “sys-

tems of care” — the Mayo Clinic is a model — which would offer all standard plan services and take responsibility for keeping patients healthy, not just performing (and charging for) individual procedures. Key to the program, he told me, is to “create a world of limited resources” for health care — the only way to put market forces into play in a field where costs are now “open-ended.” Bredesen thinks it will take 15 years to get his plan fully up and running — perhaps from 2016 to 2030 — but at the end of the process, “the result is the health care system we’ve been seeking — universal, fair, high quality, reasonable in its cost, honestly paid for, uniquely American.” Instead of wrangling incessantly over the GOP demands to “repeal and replace” Obamacare and Obama’s offer to merely “tweak” it, Congress ought to reform the reform — and call Bredesen in to help. •

smart money Q: We purchased a house last May. We really could not afford the payments at $1,300 a month. This is my first home, and a lot of mistakes were made. After a year of making payments, we received a letter saying that we will fall short on escrow, to pay for insurance, taxes, etc., even though the house has been devalued and BRUCE taxes were supposedly dropped. We don’t care much, as we are in our 50s and plan on living here until we die. How can the payments go up $288? Can we do anything? — Liz, via e-mail A: You are in a position many have found themselves in. The escrow account that has been established by your bank was set up so that, in theory, there will be enough money at the end of next year when your insurance, taxes, etc., come due. You say your house has been “devalued,” but the tax rate very possibly has gone up. We all know that all over



the country, homeowners insurance, which includes your fire, liability, etc., has increased. It may very well be that when you bought the house in May, whoever set up the escrow account underestimated what these costs would be. I doubt seriously that the $288 increase you have discussed is a permanent proposition. That may be how much is short in your account, or they may have come up with that number for a few months to bring it up to speed. First of all, find out how much your escrow account payment was from May until now. How much was put into escrow at closing? You can call your insurance agent and find out what your insurance is. It may be that you want to shop for insurance. I am wondering whether you were represented when you purchased this house. I ask that because your attorney should have had a heads up to what those expenses would have been. The $288 is probably a temporary charge to make your escrow account healthy. •

DETROIT (AP) — General Motors is returning to life as a public company today with a stock offering worth potentially $23 billion, ending the U.S. government’s role as majority shareholder and closing a remarkable chapter in American corporate history. The U.S. government should make about $13.6 billion as GM shares start trading on the New York Stock Exchange. The federal Treasury is unloading more than 400 million shares of GM, reducing its stake in the company from 61 percent to about 33 percent. The initial public offering could wind up as the largest in history. GM set a price of $33 per common share Wednesday, a day after it raised the number of shares it will offer to satisfy investor demand. When the U.S. government and other owners sell their shares, they’ll raise $18.2 billion. GM will raise another $5 billion by selling 100 million preferred shares at $50 each. Together, the sale of common and preferred stock will bring the deal’s value to a record $23.2 billion. Dan Akerson, GM’s fourth CEO in less than two years, will ring the opening bell to start the day’s trading, and they’ll honk the horn of a new Chevrolet Camaro SS muscle car at the same time. For Mark Reuss, GM’s North American president, the first day of trading represents a rare second chance for the company, courtesy of a $50 billion bailout from U.S. taxpayers. It’s a chance that GM is ready to capitalize on as a new company with a focus on building cars and trucks that people want to buy, Reuss said in an interview today from the floor

GM CEO Dan Akerson is applauded after ringing the opening bell today at the New York Stock Exchange. of the exchange. “We’ve all taken that as the No. 1 priority, to make everybody proud of us,” he said. “There’s a lot of work to do, but today is the beginning of the new company.” The stock offering is the latest in a series of head-spinning developments over the past two years for an American corporate icon. In September 2008, to mark its 100th birthday, the automaker celebrated in the grand three-story atrium on the ground floor of its Detroit headquarters. Two months later, then-CEO Rick Wagoner found himself in front of members of Congress, begging for money to keep GM alive. Four months after that,

he was ousted by President Barack Obama. By June 2009, GM had filed for bankruptcy. It emerged relieved of most of its debt but mostly owned by the government and saddled with a damaging nickname: “Government Motors.” The value of its old stock was wiped out, along with $27 billion in bond value. Now GM will become a publicly traded company again and revive the stock symbol “GM.” Obama on Wednesday said GM’s IPO marks a major milestone not only in the turnaround of the company, but of the U.S. auto industry as a whole. “Supporting the American auto industry required tough decisions and shared sacri-

fices, but it helped save jobs, rescue an industry at the heart of America’s manufacturing sector, and make it more competitive for the future,” Akerson said. Most of the new stock will go to institutional investors, not to everyday investors, following a Wall Street system that rewards investment banks’ big customers. GM will set aside 5 percent of its new stock for employees, retirees and car dealers to buy at the offering price. Early today, GM’s main joint venture partner in China, SAIC Motor Corp., said it has bought a nearly 1 percent stake in GM, buying shares being offered in the IPO at a total cost of nearly $500 million.

ing Wednesday at the district office on Mission 66. They included school principals; heads of finance, transportation, security and other departments; and special education and instructional support staff. After collecting their ideas, Swinford asked them to canvass teachers, assistants and all staff members, collect their responses and turn them in to her by Dec. 3. The superintendent hopes to have a strategic plan developed, approved and in force by July 1. “We need to do it now, as soon as possible, and it’s a lengthy process,” she said. Suggestions gleaned from the community meetings included math and reading intervention, more funds for classroom supplies and more technology, including “Smart boards” and laptop computers for students. The district has an existing strategic plan, but it was adopted in 1997. “It’s just a document we have out there, sitting,” Swinford said.

The superintendent, as others have before her, meets monthly with administration and leadership to pass along information from school board meetings, develop procedures, discuss policies and share ideas. Wednesday’s discussions also involved improving the reading abilities of students. Swinford handed out data collected from the most recent round of state testing in April which shows 21 percent of students in the district scoring in the Minimal category on tests of reading or English skills. Another 39 percent scored Basic, 35 percent Proficient and 5 percent Advanced. “Obviously, we want to increase the number of Advanced and decrease the number of Minimal,” she said, as well as move Basic readers to Proficient and beyond. “Reading has to be one of the things we pay the most attention to. If the kids can’t read, they can’t do science, social studies or even math.”

Working in groups with the same facilitators who led community groups, administrators shared methods used at their schools, including a focus on vocabulary, staff development and the use of videotaped lessons for students assigned to in-school suspension. Other topics discussed Wednesday included suggestions for raising the district’s public profile; the need to review and change, if necessary, the professional dress code for employees as well as the elementary school supply lists; the district’s new bullying policy recently adopted by the board; proposals for upcoming teacher work days; and policies with regard to test instructions and school visits from the Department of Human Services. The new bullying policy, adopted Nov. 11, requires adults who work in the schools to report instances of bullying or face disciplinary action.

“Now is the time,” said Vicki Webster, spokesman for Save the Delta Queen 2010. “She (the Delta Queen) is the last remaining living connection to the past.” Ambassadors International spokesman Vanessa Bloy said the company has been reviewing offers from potential buyers, but declined to say how many. The boat is listed at $4.75 million, she said. The Delta Queen and its sister vessel, the Mississippi Queen, were taken out of service from 2007 to 2008. The Delta lost its exemption under the 1966 Safety of Life at Seas Act to sail with a wooden superstructure. The Mississippi was sold for scrap earlier this year to an undisclosed buyer by its owner, Windstar Cruises, part of Ambassadors International. A third steamer, the American Queen, has sat idle in Beaumont, Texas, since 2007. The Delta’s route brought it through Vicksburg often.



“We benefited greatly from the boat stops,” said Vicksburg Convention and Visitors Bureau Executive Director Bill Seratt. “They visited our museums, our restaurants and our shops. Literally, we lost hundreds, if not thousands, of visitors when it stopped operating. The Delta Queen is an American icon.” The Delta was built in 1926, and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1970 and designated a National Historic Landmark in 1989. Other companies have announced plans for river cruises. In September, Guilford, Conn.-based American Cruise Lines said it would start offering by 2012 overnight excursions with stops in Vicksburg. Also, in June, Seattle-based Cruise West said it will restart trips on the Mississippi and its tributaries in March 2011 aboard its Spirit of America.

other cases, and is currently serving an eight year sentence. Jackson, Jones, Stowers and Calvary had been arrested following a Dec. 26 robbery at another apartment at the Apple Orchard complex on Blossom Lane. Williams faces up to 10 years in prison. He remains out of jail on a $25,000 bond,

but is scheduled for sentencing Friday in circuit court by Judge M. James Chaney. Williams was arrested following his indictment in July on sexual battery and incest charges. The complaint against him was made May 6 by an adult victim to the Vicksburg Police Department, where Williams was a patrolman in 2003 and 2004

and for about 10 months in 2007. An investigation by the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation ensued after the detective arm of the state police was contacted by the Warren County Sheriff’s Department, which was brought into the case after it was determined the crime happened outside city limits.

When Williams was indicted, officials did not say whether he quit or was fired. He had been placed on medical leave from the department in April after he was injured in a wreck. In addition to his law enforcement career, Williams ran unsuccessfully for sheriff of Issaquena County in November 2007.

Uneasy House Democrats keep Pelosi as leader WASHINGTON — House Democrats gambled Wednesday they can return to power under the same leaders who just oversaw a 61-seat election loss, choosing Nancy Pelosi to remain their party chief when they become Rep. Nancy the minority Pelosi in January. Moderate Democrats pleaded for a change to show voters they understand the anger and unrest regRep. John Boehner istered two weeks earlier on Election Day. And Pelosi didn’t retain her leadership without a fight, defeating Rep. Heath Shuler of North Carolina, 150-43, in secret balloting in a lengthy closeddoor gathering on Capitol Hill. In a contrast befitting the Nov. 2 election results, House Republicans kept Rep. John Boehner of Ohio as their leader without opposition, and he will become speaker in the new Congress. Eric Cantor of Virginia will retain the second-ranking party position, which will be majority leader, and Kevin McCarthy of California will be the party whip. Boehner, who turned 61 Wednesday, told his colleagues they will usher in “the dawn of a new majority,” which he said will be “humbler, wiser and more focused than its predecessors on the priorities of the people.”

Obama enlists big guns to save nuke treaty WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama summoned a number of former defense secretaries and secretaries of state of both parties to the White House to rally support for an imperiled nuclear weapons treaty


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS with Russia. Those invited to the Roosevelt Room meeting today included Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry, Sen. Richard Lugar and former Sen. Sam Nunn, plus former secretaries of state Madeleine Albright, James Baker and Henry Kissinger. Former defense secretaries William Cohen and William Perry and former National Security Adviser Brent Scowcroft also were included. The White House said Obama wanted to discuss why it is in the national interest that the Senate approve the treaty this year, a move that a key Senate Republican says would be premature.

Murkowski wins Alaska Senate seat WASHINGTON — An exultant Sen. Lisa Murkowski is celebrating her write-in victory over Sarah Palin’s favored candidate in Alaska, saying the “most phenomenal coalition” of Republicans, Democrats and independents re-elected her against long


odds. Murkowski acknowledges in nationally broadcast television interviews that ballots Sen. Lisa remain to be Murkowski counted in the state, but said, “The fact of the matter is, the numbers are there and they are what they are.” Murkowski said today that her triumph was “Alaskans coming together. ... It was a challenge for Alaskans, but they met it.”

Medicare panel backs costly cancer drug WASHINGTON — Medicare advisers on Wednesday supported the effectiveness of the prostate cancer drug Provenge, an innovative therapy that has prompted questions about the cost of medical care and the government’s role in paying for it. The vote by a 14-member panel of outside experts amounts to a recommendation that Medicare pay for Provenge, which costs $93,000 per patient and extends life an average of four months.

sidelines Favre: Shoulder is OK, team still has hope

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — This week will likely be the last of Brett Favre’s four grudge games against Green Bay since he shook up the sports world by signing with former rival Minnesota more than a year ago. If Favre and the Vikings (3-6) aren’t victorious on Sunday, well, the NFC playoffs will probably take place without any purple. This season has been so strange, though, and so frustrating for Favre and his teammates that the rematch against the Packers (6-3) appears to offer far less drama than all the other subplots surrounding the 41-yearold quarterback and his underperforming team. The NFL, after all, at some point will announce the findings of its investigation into allegations that Favre sent texts and lewd photos to a female Jets employee two years ago. Favre threw 24 interceptions in 1993, 23 each in 1998 and 1999 and 29 in 2005, so he’s endured these turnover rashes before. But he said he doesn’t typically alter his approach in such stretches.

OXFORD — Murray State’s plan to stop Ole Miss guard Chris Warren worked nearly perfectly. The only problem for the Racers is it left Zach Graham and Nick Williams open all night. Graham scored 22 points and Williams added 21 as Ole Miss cruised to a 77-61 victory over Murray State on Wednesday night. Both totals were career-highs as the Rebels overcame a slow start to finish an impressive victory over a program that’s considered one of the best mid-majors in the country. “We were patient,” Williams said. “We ran our offense, found some open shots and then knocked them down.” Graham, a 6-foot-6 senior, made 6-of-11 shots from the field, including 3-of-4 from 3-point range. He was also 7 of 7 from the free-throw line. Williams, a transfer from Indiana playing just his second game with the Rebels, made 7 of 10 from the field. The 6-foot-4 sophomore added six rebounds and two assists. Ole Miss (2-0) made 22 of 23 free throws (95.7 percent) and led by as many as 23 late in the second half. “I thought we really took a step forward today,” Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy

Golden Eagles romp over South Alabama By The Associated Press HATTIESBURG — R.L. Horton scored 25 points, Josimar Ayarza added 17 and Southern Miss blew past South Alabama 93-58 on Wednesday night. The Golden Eagles (2-0) put together an early 16-0 run and led 38-20 at the break before putting away the Jaguars (1-1) with a 26-5 run to start the second half. Southern Miss won without forward Gary Flowers, last year’s leading scorer, who missed the game with what coach Larry Eustachy called “flu-like symptoms.” Flowers led Southern Miss with 15 points in a 60-53 win over South Florida on Friday, but Horton was 10-of-20 from the field, including 5-for--7

from the 3-point line. Torye Pelham and Ahyaro Phillips shared Flowers’ power forward role, and scored 15 and seven points, respectively. “I thought we beat a really good team,” Southern Miss coach Larry Eustachy said. “I’m shocked at how easy we got them. We did it without our best player, and also with the newcomers not playing as well as I know they will. We put it into their heads that they needed to step up without (Gary) Flowers, and they did. It was good for our guys to be able to do that. I know they feel real good about themselves.” Tim Williams led the Jaguars with 17 points. See USM, Page B3.

By a razor-thin margin, Vicksburg High kept its place among the big boys. Vicksburg ranked 31st in enrollment among Mississippi’s high schools, allowing it to remain in Class 6A under the Mississippi High School Activities Association’s bi-annual reclassification plan. Vicksburg had 1,086 students. Natchez, at No. 32, had 1,085 and Starkville was 33rd with 1,079. The 32 largest high schools in the state are placed in Class 6A, while the next 32 make up Class 5A. Vicksburg football coach Alonzo Stevens was hopeful the school would drop down a class, giving it an edge on some competitors. Instead, he’ll hit the field in 2011 with a team made up from one of the smallest student bodies in Class 6A. “You’ve got to play the hand they dealt you. Coming off being the biggest 4A (in 2006) and now being the smallest 6A, it’s going to be a challenge,” Stevens said. “Just being that small, it creates a double challenge. We’re up for it. We’ve just got to compete.” Warren Central remained solidly in Class 6A. Although it ranked 27th in enrollment, WC had 1,165 students when the final count was taken in October. St. Aloysius will also remain in Class 1A. It ranked 18th out of 52 schools grouped into the state’s smallest classification with 160 students. The largest Class 1A school, H.W. Byers, had 196. Although Vicksburg’s three MHSAA members — as well as Class 4A Port Gibson — will stay put, others in the surrounding area will be on the move: • South Delta, located in Rolling Fork, will drop See Class, Page B3.

Southern Miss guard Maurice Bolden goes for a layup in front of South Alabama center Augustine Rubit on Wednesday.

Big-time college football is all about the dollars The recent accusations about Auburn quarterback Cam Newton’s recruitment are damning. The best player in the country is now in the spotlight for something other than his stellar play. But are they anything new? Are they symptomatic of a broken system where an incompetent NCAA struggles to find and punish offenders? No, they’re not anything new. Money and big-time college football and basketball have gone together like a horse and carriage for decades. Oklahoma’s pay-for-play scandals under Barry Switzer, Southern Methodist’s death penalty for egregious violations, Alabama’s Albert Means case and the USC



Reggie Bush debacle are all part of a fabric of scandal that stretches back to the 1950s, when the “hundred-dollar handshake” became shady booster de riguer. With the massive revenue generated by college football, thanks to gigantic TV deals, the stakes for securing better talent have only increased. The best way to view the FBS (Football Bowl Subdivision) is that it is a high-

dollar, minor-league feeder system for the NFL. All of the NCAA’s blather about “student-athletes” and new regulations just make it harder, not impossible, and ensure that only the wealthiest and prestigious football and basketball programs can compete on the big stage. These modern athletes are ones who just happen to go to school and, thanks to the Academic Progress Rate regulation, will graduate in a useless major like underwater basket weaving. They’re athletes first, students second. Not all of them fit that template, but looking at the majors during a telecast draws snickers. Remember “urban studies?” Like you can get a job in the real world with that on your diploma.

Not all big-time college football is like that, but the exceptions stand out like a Yamaha at a Harley-Davidson motorcycle rally. If you want to see true student athletes playing for the love of the game, the FCS, Division II and Division III (no athletic scholarships) are the last vestiges of the old system where students played football for enjoyment and school pride, not dollars and cents. Colleges have attached themselves to this beast of big-money football and receive millions of dollars in exchange for a Faustian deal with the devil. If anything comes of the Newton allegations, Cam and his father, Cecil, will pay the price. Auburn will go on pro-

bation if the coaching staff played him despite eligibility questions. They’ll likely have to vacate all of the wins this season, but in the grand scheme of things, it’ll be a slap on the wrist. To the fans in the stands and the boosters in the skyboxes and the school administration who enriched their school coffers, it won’t matter that the exciting season will be blanked from the record book like it didn’t happen. Resign yourself to the fact that you’re watching unofficial pro football. It just happens to be played on a college campus near you. •

SOCCER Warren Central blasts Greenville-St. Joe, 9-1 Erik Chappell scored three goals to pace Warren Central to a 9-1 victory over visiting Greenville-St. Joe on Tuesday.

NFL Schaub spends night in hospital HOUSTON — Texans quarterback Matt Schaub spent the night in the hospital and missed practice with a bursa sac injury in his right knee. Houston coach Gary Kubiak said the injury will not require surgery. He expects Schaub to return to practice today and be ready when the Texans (4-5) play at the New York Jets (7-2) on Sunday.

NBA Oden will miss another season PORTLAND, Ore. — Trail Blazers center Greg Oden, the former No. 1 draft pick whose short career has been marred by injuries, will have microfracture surgery on his left knee and will not play this season. Oden hasn’t played since last December because he needed surgery to repair a fractured left patella. The Blazers say this operation, scheduled for Friday in Vail, Colo., will repair damaged cartilage and is unrelated to the patella injury. Oden, the first name announced in the 2007 NBA draft, missed his rookie season because of microfracture surgery on his right knee. The procedure stimulates cartilage growth.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL Fairley, Peterson are finalists for Nagurski DALLAS — Auburn defensive tackle Nick Fairley was among five finalists for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy announced by the Football Writers Association of America and the Charlotte Touchdown Club. The other finalists are Clemson defensive end Da’Quan Bowers, Georgia linebacker Justin Houston, Boston College linebacker Luke Kuechly and LSU cornerback Patrick Peterson. The Nagurski Trophy is given to the nation’s top defensive player regardless of position. It will be presented Dec. 6 in Charlotte, N.C.


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Nov. 18 1970 — Joe Frazier knocks out Bob Foster in the second round to retain the world heavyweight title in Detroit. 1995 — Alex Van Dyke sets an NCAA record for most receiving yards in a season, catching 13 passes for 314 yards as Nevada beats San Jose State 45-28. Van Dyke raises his total to 1,874 yards, surpassing the record of 1,779 set in 1965 by Howard Twilley of Tulsa. 2000 — Indiana’s Antwaan Randle El becomes the second player in NCAA Division I-A history to rush for 200 points and pass for 200 points in a career in a 41-13 loss to Purdue. 2007 — Jimmie Johnson becomes the first driver to win consecutive Nextel Cup championships since Jeff Gordon in 1997 and ’98, wrapping up the title by finishing a trouble-free seventh in the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Capital City Classic seeks fan support By Jeff Byrd

Purdue’s JaJuan Johnson, left, dunks over Alcorn State forward Michael Martin Wednesday.

Purdue blasts Alcorn State By The Associated Press Purdue’s pressure against Alcorn State was so good that coach Matt Painter couldn’t tell how well his team’s defense performed overall. The 14th-ranked Boilermakers forced 28 turnovers in a 103-48 win over the Braves on Wednesday night, limiting the chances for Painter to assess his team’s halfcourt defense. “When somebody can’t get into their offense, it’s not a real gauge on what your defense can do,” Painter said. “Our pressure knocked them off, they couldn’t get into their offense. Sometimes, it’s fool’s gold.” Not necessarily. When the Braves got past the pressure, Purdue held them to 29 percent shooting. Purdue led 59-17 at halftime, and by 62 points with 9:41 to play. Purdue held Howard to 25 percent shooting three days earlier. The offense was effective for the second straight game. A day after star forward Robbie Hummel had ACL surgery, E’Twaun Moore had 19 points, seven assists and six rebounds, John Hart scored a careerhigh 16 points and made 4 of 6 3-pointers, Sandi Marcius had 12 points and eight rebounds and JaJuan Johnson added 12 points for the Boilermakers (2-0), who shot 52 percent from the field. Hart, a reserve, has made 8 of 11 3-pointers this season.

Villanova 82, Boston U. 66 Antonio Pena scored 17 points and Corey Fisher had 16 to lead No. 6 Villanova to an 82-66 victory over Boston University in the second round of the NIT Season Tip-Off on Wednesday night.

Memphis 94, Northwestern St. 79 Wesley Witherspoon had 24 points and a career-high 12 rebounds, while Will Barton added 22 points to key a second-half rally to help No. 19 Memphis beat Northwestern State. Witherspoon was 5-of-7 from the field and converted all but one of his 14 free throws as Memphis (3-0) survived a second-half burst by the Demons, who held the lead with just over 13 minutes left.

Tennessee 60, Missouri St. 56 Trae Golden, playing in place of an injured Melvin Goins, hit a pair of free throws with 7.2 seconds left and No. 24 Tennessee beat Missouri State in the second round of the NIT Season Tip-Off.

JACKSON — Attendance at last year’s Capital City Classic was just over 16,000. That was enough to send red flags up to the administrations at Jackson State and Alcorn State. On Wednesday at the University Club in downtown Jackson, it was the key subject in a breakfast press conference hosted by former New Orleans Saints running back Deuce McAllister. While McAllister played at Ole Miss and has no ties to either Jackson State or Alcorn, he is a big promoter for the city of Jackson with several business ventures and knows the importance of the contest, now in its 18th year. “We feel a need to restore the Capital City Classic,” McAllister said. “It is very important for both schools financially that this game is a success and a successful Capital City Classic is good for the city of Jackson. What we need is for people to buy tickets and come to the game.” Alcorn State athletic director Brenda Square said efforts by McAllister and the Jackson business community are helping. “We are experiencing a revitalization of this game,” Square said. “Both of our institutions are in a financial crisis and we need to get the crowds back to where they were when we had 40,000. We want folks to embrace the heritage of these two schools.” At least in this year’s meet-

It will be the largest 2A school, missing the cut for 3A by just four students. • Hinds AHS will drop from Class 2A to 1A and could end up in a division with St. Al when those are announced in early December. Hinds was the sixth largest Class 1A school with 186 students. Football coach Michael Fields said the drop came as no surprise. “I kind of expected that. The only bad part is that when you’re dropping numbers, you’re dropping athletes,” Fields said, adding that he wasn’t necessarily sure the drop in class would benefit his team. “It’s hard to say, because if we’re in that district it doesn’t matter. Those teams are as good as the teams we’re playing.” The biggest remaining question when it comes to reclassification is the divisional alignment. Hinds AHS

slide capped by a 39-35 loss on ESPNU to Arkansas-PineBluff in Lorman. Since then, the Braves have gone 2-1 and a win against the Tigers would make Collins 2-0 against JSU and give the Braves a winning season. “Very important game,” Collins said. “We will use this as a building block.”

could join St. Al and University Christian, a newcomer from the MAIS, in a vastly reconstituted Region 4-1A. Meanwhile, in Class 6A, a shakeup in the southern half of the state could bring a radical change to the lineup. Three schools — Starkville, Wingfield and Pascagoula — dropped from 6A to 5A. Moving up to replace them are Forest Hill, St. Martin and D’Iberville. Starkville’s drop will likely shift either Grenada or GreenvilleWeston from Region 2-6A to 1-6A, which covers the northern half of the state. Region 2-6A, which includes Vicksburg, Warren Central and a smattering of schools located along I-20, will likely add Natchez, Brandon, Terry or Forest Hill to its roster. All of those schools except Forest Hill are currently in Region 3-6A, which covers a huge swath of southern Mississippi.

He missed all four of his attempts from beyond the arc — including one in the final seconds as the crowd groaned. “I hate that (the streak is) broken,” Andy Kennedy said. “But I give Murray State credit. They were really pressing up on him and forcing him to drive ... That was their gameplan and it was a smart one.” Murray State (1-1), which returned three starters from a team that made the second round of the NCAA Tournament last season, shot just

ing, fans will see two teams that can finish with winning records and have two of Mississippi’s best quarterbacks at any level. Jackson State’s Casey Therriault, a junior from Michigan, has cut a swath through Southwestern Athletic Conference defenses this season and is a prime candidate for the Conerly Trophy at the end of the month. In leading the Tigers to a 7-3 record, Therriault has completed 229 of 405 passes for 3,228 yards and 29 touchdowns. He has seven 300-yard games and has thrown for five touchdowns twice, including last week’s win over Arkansas Pine-Bluff. “He’s just had a fantastic year,” said Jackson State coach Rick Comegy. “He’s been a great leader for us.” On the other side, Alcorn State (5-5, 3-4 SWC) is led by Toronto native Brandon Bridge, who has thrown for 2,016 yards and 18 touchdowns while running for an additional 570 yards and eight scores. “He’s an excellant quarterback who can hurt you with his arm or his feet,” Jackson State defensive end Sam Washington said.

Alcorn State coach Earnest Collins knows how important Bridge’s play has been for his team. “He’s had an amazing year,” Collins said. “He’s just a freshman, but he is a really mature freshman.” The Braves got off to a 3-0 start behind Bridge. Then came a loss to Mississippi State that started a four-game

30.2 percent from the field (16-of-53) and trailed 34-23 at halftime. Biloxi native Isaiah Canaan led the Racers with 15 points. Donte Poole added 12 and Jeffrey McClain scored 11. Murray State’s strength is its quick guard play, but a taller and stronger Ole Miss defense kept them off balance all night. “We missed a lot of layups around the basket,” Murray State coach Billy Kennedy said. “Their size was a factor.” The Racers jumped out to an early six-point lead, but fought foul trouble throughout the game. Ole Miss went on an 11-0 run midway through the first half to take

a 21-14 lead and the Rebels never trailed again. Graham and Williams scored a combined seven points during that crucial run. Andy Kennedy credited Warren and Graham for keeping the team composed during the early dry stretch. “If seniors can’t be composed, you’ve got issues,” Andy Kennedy said. “They’ve got to steady the ship.” Ole Miss is now 39-1 at home in non-conference games under fifth-year coach Andy Kennedy. The Rebels are 19-5 all-time against teams from the Ohio Valley Conference.

‘Housewives’ star to divorce NBA hubby Less than four years after a storybook wedding in Paris, Eva Longoria filed court papers Wednesday to divorce basketball star Tony Parker, citing irreconcilable differences. Parker, a three-time NBA All-Star with the San Antonio Spurs, made no hint as to what caused the split between him and the star of TV’s “Desperate Housewives” during a brief meeting with a throng of reporters outside his team’s lock- Eva Longoria Parker and er room about an hour before Tony Parker a game. “It’s a difficult time right now for me and Eva,” Parker said. “We got a joint statement and everything else is our private life.” Asked about speculation that Parker might have been involved with the wife of a former Spurs teammate, Parker replied: “That’s my private life.” Parker spoke to the media for less than a minute before a team official ended the interview. Longoria and Parker were married in a civil ceremony in France on July 6, 2007. The next day, a priest married them in a church across from the Louvre Museum, followed by an exclusive bash at a storied French chateau.

Boyle breaking records with new album Singing sensation Susan Boyle has a No. 1 album in the United States and the U.K. simultaneously for the second time in a year — a feat not achieved for more than 40 years.

Boyle said she has “never felt happier” than seeing “The Gift,” match her first record’s successful debut. “The Gift” reached No. 1 in the Susan U.K. on Sunday and topped the U.S. charts Boyle Wednesday. The eccentric Scot shot to international fame after her audition for the TV show “Britain’s Got Talent” received more than 120 million views on YouTube.

Ferrigno, best known for his starring role in “The Incredible Hulk” television series, lives in California. He says the Arizona posse volunteers can help protect the country against drug and immigrant smugglers. “I must warn you that we are in for a rude awakening, because this country right now is in a lot of danger,” Ferrigno said at the ceremony Wednesday. The sheriff said action-film star Steven Seagal and actor Peter Lupus of TV’s “Mission: Impossible” fame also are members of the posse group, though they weren’t sworn in at the ceremony.

Burglary suspect found asleep on floor Police didn’t have a hard time finding a burglary suspect they said broke into a central Florida home. He was asleep on the bedroom floor. The homeowner said his home had been targeted several times in the past few days. It’s unclear what, if anything, was stolen. Authorities found a side door forced open and a 17-year-old sleeping on the floor Wednesday. He was charged with burglary and taken to a juvenile detention center. His name is being withheld because of his age.

Singer Newton wants to open house to world Las Vegas mansion is filled with celebrity memorabilia LAS VEGAS (AP) — Wayne Newton’s Las Vegas estate is a lavish wonderland complete with South African penguins, sweeping crystal staircases and a memorabilia collection to make a celebrity junkie salivate: a Frank Sinatra champagne glass, Nat King Cole’s watch, Steve McQueen’s RollsRoyce and a Johnny Cash guitar. The estate is so resplendent, Newton said, that he plans to open his gated home to the public and turn it into a tourist attraction. The project some have dubbed “Graceland West” won initial approval from a local government board Wednesday, paving the way for Newton to open his tours in late 2011 as planned. The attraction has caused friction between the entertainer and neighbors opposed to noisy tour buses, unyielding traffic and inane gift shops flooding their affluent neighborhood of ranches and mansions just six miles from the Las Vegas Strip. At the Clark County Commission meeting Wednesday, critics went on for more than three hours, begging the board to postpone approving the stillevolving project, to no avail. “This has been incredibly heavy-handed,” said neighbor Terry Manley. “It’s arrogance. What’s the hurry?” In Newton’s vision, visitors to Casa de Shenandoah will tour select parts of his 10,000-squarefoot home adorned with plush white carpets, gold-trimmed

The keepsakes are a reflection of some of the mentors and friends who helped make Newton famous, including Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Bobby Darin and Jack Benny.

Man accused of shooting TV over ‘Dancing with the Stars’ MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A rural Wisconsin man apparently enraged by Bristol Palin’s “Dancing with the Stars” routine blasted his television with a shotgun, leading to an all-night standoff with a SWAT team, investigators said. Steven Cowan, 67, was arrested Tuesday morning after officers coaxed him out of his house in Vermont, a rural community near Madison. Cowan, who is accused of threatening his wife with the gun after destroying the television, appeared in a Madison courtroom Wednesday on a charge of second-degree reckless endangerment. His bail was set at $1,500. Cowan’s attorney at the hearing, Jonas Bednarek, declined to comment. Cowan’s wife, Janice Cowan, told investigators that her husband suffers from bipolar disorder and had threatened her life in the past. According to court documents, Janice Cowan said her husband came home Monday from the bar and had a beer with dinner before they settled down to watch “Dancing with the Stars.” When Palin, the 20-year-old daughter of Tea Party favorite Sarah Palin, began her routine, Cowan jumped up and began swearing, saying something like “The (expletive) politics.” His wife said he was upset that a political figure’s daughter was dancing on TV even though he felt she didn’t have talent. Janice Cowan told investigators her husband left the living room and reappeared 20 minutes later with his shotgun, “raging” with his face bright red, and blasted the TV. She said he then pointed the gun at her and told her to go fetch his

It did not elaborate. “He scared the bejebees out of me,” she told detectives. Janice Cowan fled the home and went to an attorney’s office, where she phoned police. She told officers that about 15 years ago her husband had threatened her with a machete when he couldn’t find some ammunition and has threatened to shoot one of their cows. She added he was under stress because of financial reasons, saying a doctor helping him with his mental health problems had suggested he temporarily turn over control of properties he rents out to the family’s attorney.

“This is ‘The Dove,”’ Newton, 68, informed visitors on a recent morning, plucking a beat-up guitar case from a row of instruments near his desk. “Elvis gave it to me at Graceland four months before he died.” An adjacent theater would show a documentary about Newton’s public life, and, on some nights, Newton himself would take the stage to belt out the songs that made his highpitched voice famous — “Daddy Don’t You Walk So Fast,” which peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard charts in 1972; his 1965 version of “Red Roses for a Blue Lady,”

and his signature hit, “Danke Schoen.” Newton said he and his wife decided to share their home because they love the 40-acre estate so much. The attraction will be both a tribute to Las Vegas performers and a peaceful haven in a city of neon lights and 24-hour casinos, he said. “The last thing I have ever done is infringe on my neighbors,” he said. “I’ve heard people say that we are building a monument to myself. Get serious. I’m not that important.” The attraction could employ more than 400 people while creating a new cash cow after years of financial troubles. Newton filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in 1992 to reorganize an estimated $20 million in debts, including a $341,000 Internal Revenue Service lien for back taxes.

Naming former spouses sets record straight in obituaries Dear Abby: “Surviving Son in California” (Sept. 20) sought your advice regarding proper protocol in mentioning all surviving relatives when parents had been divorced. You said, “After a couple divorces and one of them dies, the name of the former spouse is usually not mentioned in the obituary.” I think your response needs a little tweaking. My siblings and I faced this same scenario after my father passed away. My parents divorced when I was in grade school, and each parent had remarried by my freshman year in high school. Although their divorce was painful, they remained on friendly terms throughout their lives. I was adamant that my biological mother be listed in my father’s obituary for two reasons: First, the obituary serves as a historical document. Second, I did not want people reading the obituary to think my sib-



lings and I were children from my father’s second marriage. An obituary should serve as a historical account of our loved one’s life — not a battlefield. — Leslie in Port Angeles, Wash.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — That protective nature of yours won’t hesitate to go to bat for someone who is near and dear to you, when you see s/he is in trouble and could use your help. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — It might not be obvious to you, but your strength of character and determination come into play the moment you believe you or someone you love is in trouble. This may happen today. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — That wonderful optimism of yours, with its positive expectations, is what contributes to your successes. When it is coupled with practicality, as it is likely to be today, its power is awesome. Aries (March 21-April 19) — It is best not to see yourself as the underdog when negotiating an important deal, because it could cause you to get in a begging mode instead of acting from a strong position. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Friends who need a lot of pats on the back could be difficult for many to handle, but not you. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Everyone gets a day when people treat them in the same manner they have treated others, and today could be yours. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Lots of fun happenings shared with good co-workers, friends and associates are likely to make up most of your day. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Any barriers or obstacles shouldn’t bar you one bit from doing what you want. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Although you won’t deliberately seek out competitive situations in either your business or social affairs, they could serve to encourage you to achieve what you want. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Provided you don’t leave anything up to chance, there are strong indications that you will collect what is owed you, even if that means calling in a marker on something that is long overdue.

TWEEN 12 & 20

BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: My best friend and I are upset with each other. We are not talking because she said I was spending too much time with my boyfriend and almost ignoring her. I want this “rift” to end, and the sooner the better. I don’t want this disagreement to ever happen again. Can you help me? — Nameless, Ontario, Calif. Nameless: It can be healthy for friends to express anger just as long as there’s a speedy resolution. According to Community Psychiatric Centers in Santa Ana, Calif., the following “Fix It” Strategies should get your best friend and you back together: • Act sooner, not later. The longer you wait, the more bitter you may feel toward each other, and the harder it will be to make up. • Be willing to be the icebreaker. You’d make up with her in a minute — if she would just ask you to. But maybe she feels the same way. Somebody’s got to be willing to swallow her pride and make the first move toward reconciliation, and it may as well be you. • Establish some ground rules. Like where to meet, who goes first, etc. The goal is that by practicing negotiations on smaller issues, you’ll go on to settle the larger ones as well! • Hear each other out. Let your friend state her case without any interruptions by you or others. • Avoid placing blame. “It’s your fault!” Such statements only put the other person on the defensive, and she will strike back. Try using “When you ... I feel” statements instead: “When you promised to go to the movies with me and then ended up going out with your boyfriend, I felt rejected.” See how much less threatening that sounds? • Focus on problems, not personalities. Rule out remarks like, “You always get your way because you’re spoiled,” or “You’re just jealous of me because I scored better on the math test than you did.” • Recall happy times. When disagreements between friends pop up, it helps to remind one another of fun times you had together in the past. The message is that there can be more good times in the future — you just have to work at bringing back the old, close feelings. • Bite your tongue. There are some things that should never be said, even in the heat of an argument, because they inflict lasting pain. You cannot take such words back. Insisting afterward that you really didn’t mean it won’t undo the damage. Your friend will have a hard time forgetting, and the trust between you could be destroyed. The spat is officially over when you and your best friend end it with a hug. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service. E-mail him at rwallace@Copley News Service.

is becoming more common to see “So-and-so” was the former wife and good friend of “the deceased,” which is a nice development. It is the right of the surviving family to decide the contents of the obituary. Because some people even include pets among survivors, you would think an ex-spouse would receive the same consideration. — Name Withheld in Connecticut Dear Abby: Genealogy researchers often use obituaries to find the parents or children of families. Here in Iowa, it is common for the obituary to show that a couple married, had children and were divorced. I understand how some children might decide to omit a parent if the divorce wasn’t a friendly one. I was left out of my first husband’s obituary, but I got over it. — Two Sides to a Story Dear Abby: There is a difference between an obituary and

a death notice. A death notice is a paid announcement, usually in small type and generally placed by the funeral director. It can include, or exclude, anything the family wishes. An obituary is an objective news story written by a bylined reporter, and it contains the good, the bad and the ugly — including the names of former spouses, whether separated by death or divorce. — Former Copy Editor in Philadelphia Dear Abby: Here in the South, an ex-spouse is often listed this way: “Jane Doe of Memphis, Tenn., is the mother of his children.” The primary reason is so the children feel their surviving parent, and the years their parents spent together, are acknowledged. — Nancy in Conway, Ark. Dear Abby: You can’t erase the years spent together as a family even though a divorce

Diet low in fiber leads to diverticulitis Dear Dr. Gott: In November 2006, I was diagnosed with diverticular disease. In October 2009, I had surgery, and the diseased portion of my intestines was removed. Two abscesses were drained, one ovary was removed and a fistula was repaired. I’ve been pain free since. My question is, could this happen again? I try to consume the recommended amount of fiber, and I drink plenty of water. Your thoughts, please. Dear Reader: Diverticula are small sacs or pockets in one or more areas of the colon, more commonly in the sigmoid colon. People with diverticula present are diagnosed with diverticulosis. Should bacteria or waste get trapped in these pouches, inflammation and infection can result. When this occurs, the condition is then known as diverticulitis. Both conditions together make up diverticular disease. A diet low in fiber appears to be the main cause of diverticular disease, which can lead to constipation and strain during evacuation. It’s the straining that could cause diverticula to form in the colon. Even though you had surgical repair, you could conceivably get diverticulitis again had you not taken positive steps. By modifying your diet to include more fiber, you have gone a long way toward eliminating the problems you had in the past. Whole grains such as found in multigrain or whole wheat breads, fresh fruits such as apples, pears and peaches and vegetables such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts, squash, potatoes and legumes should provide adequate fiber. Between 20 and 35 grams of fiber per day are recommended for a healthful diet. Avoid constipation. Maintain good bowel habits. Drink adequate liquids. Exercise regularly. Obtain adequate sleep. Diverticulosis is common as a person ages. By the time a person reaches the age of 60, it will occur in almost 50 percent of the population. People without symptoms will probably not require treatment; however, they should be on a high-fiber diet to ensure they are taking all possible precautions. When symptoms do present (constipation, diarrhea, fever, chills), diagnosis can be made through X-ray, CT, ultrasound, sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy. Complications of diverticulitis can include intestinal blockage, abscesses and peritonitis (infection of the abdominal cavity). You appear to have presented with a classic case. Abscesses were discovered and drained. Surgery removed the damaged portion of the colon. You formed a fistula that was surgically removed. And you’re pain free.



Dear Dr. Gott: I recently heard that taking ginger tablets will relieve aching joints. Is there any validity to this advice? Dear Reader: I am unaware of any scientific studies to support its use; however, I’d defy anyone to go up against what the Roman Empire began using almost 2,000 years ago as a healing herb for countless maladies.

has occurred. I had been married for 30 years at the time of my divorce, and it is important for me to be listed when my ex passes away — and vice versa. My ex and I discussed this and agreed that the obituary would be written this way: “Also survived by the mother/ father of his/her children ...” In my mind, divorced or not,

you will always be family. — An Ex Who is Still Part of the Family

Thereupon William Banks offered and moved the adoption of the following resolution: RESOLUTION DECLARING THE INTENTION OF THE WARREN COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS OF WARREN COUNTY, MISSISSIPPI, TO AUTHORIZE AND APPROVE A LOAN ON BEHALF OF THE GOVERNMENT ENTITY FROM THE MISSISSIPPI DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY IN A MAXIMUM PRINCIPAL AMOUNT NOT TO EXCEED ONE HUNDRED EIGHTEEN THOUSAND, ONE HUNDRED THIRTY DOLLARS ($118,130) FOR THE PURPOSE OF PURCHASING AND INSTALLING ENERGY CONVERSION MEASURES TO PROMOTE ENERGY EFFICIENCY AND ECONOMIC GROWTH. WHEREAS, THE WARREN COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS, WARREN COUNTY, MISSISSIPPI (the "Governing Body"), does hereby find, determine, adjudicate and declare as follows: 1. The Mississippi Energy Investment Act, constituting Section 57-39-39, Mississippi Code of 1972, as amended (the "Act"), was enacted for the purpose of providing financial assistance to entities interested in making energy efficiency capital improvements or in designing and installing new processes to improve energy efficiency and productivity in the state of Mississippi (the "State"). 2.

Pursuant to the Act and guidelines adopted by MDA, the Government Entity will file an application with MDA for a loan to be used for the development of the Project in the amount of ONE HUNDRED EIGHTEEN THOUSAND, ONE HUNDRED THIRTY DOLLARS ($118,130) (the "Loan"). 5. The Government Entity and MDA will enter into a Loan Agreement (the Agreement") wherein the Government Entity agrees to borrow the proceeds of the Loan subject to and upon the terms and conditions of the Agreement. 6. In order to secure the Loan, the Government Entity will execute and deliver to MDA a Promissory Note (the "Note") and will enter into any and all other documents necessary to secure the Loan. Failure of the Government Entity to meet its repayment obligations shall result in the forfeiture of: Real and Personal Tax Collections Description of Pledge of Revenue Securing the Debt in an amount sufficient to repay obligations due pursuant to Section 57-39-39 of the Act. NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE GOVERNING BODY OF THE GOVERNMENT ENTITY, AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. The Governing Body of the Government Entity does hereby declare its intention to authorize and approve a loan from MDA in the principal amount not to exceed ONE HUNDRED EIGHTEEN THOUSAND, ONE HUNDRED THIRTY Dollars ($118,130) for the purpose of purchasing and installing energy conversion measures to promote energy efficiency and economic growth. Section 2. The Loan will be secured by a Note and all other documents necessary to secure the loan executed and delivered by the Government Entity to MDA. Pursuant to Section 57-39-39 of the Act, failure of the Government Entity to meet its repayment obligations shall result in the forfeiture of: Real and Personal Tax Collections Description of Pledge of Revenue Securing the Debt in an amount sufficient to repay obligations due pursuant to Section 57-39-39 of the Act.

If ten percent (10%) or twenty percent (20%) whichever is applicable to the Government Entity shall file a written protest with the Clerk of the Government Entity against the authorization and approval of the Loan on or before the aforesaid date and hour, then the Loan shall not be entered into unless authorized at an election on the question or authorizing and approving the Loan. Such election shall be called and held by law.
