A scant turnout produced a victory for incumbent James E. Jefferson Jr. in Tuesday’s runoff election for justice court judge in Warren County’s central district. Unofficial returns from the polls and from ballots cast via absentee or affidavit showed Jefferson with 496 votes to former Vicksburg

police officer Rudolph Walker’s 309. Jefferson won seven of the district’s 10 precincts. Including one write-in vote there were 806 votes cast for a 2.65 percent turnout of the county’s 30,401 registered voters, with three precincts showing fewer than 10 votes cast overall. Nearly 40 percent turned out locally for the Nov. 2 gen-

Joblessness in Warren County remained level in October, following the statewide trend. Local unemployment was 9.9 percent for the month, the same as an adjusted figure for September, according to figures released Wednesday by the Mississippi Department of Employment Security. The local labor force grew by 60 people last month, to 22,700 from 22,640, while the number of unemployed stayed the same, at 2,250. Local unemployment had been in double digits from November 2009 through July. Unemployment statewide was 9.7 percent, the same as September and equal to the rate when adjusted for seasonal factors in the work force. The number of unemployed increased 1,200 over the month, while the employed total increased 6,000 from the month before, the agency said. Nationally, unemployment stood at 9 percent, down slightly from

‘It’s just as hard now as the day it happened’ By Pamela Hitchins phitchins@vicksburgpost.com Six years to the day after family members last saw Angela Schultz Shiers Barrentine alive, her mother questions whether anyone will ever be charged with her death, and authorities have no answers. “I gave up hope,” said Deborah Cummins, who believes her daughter’s death was a drug-related murder, though authorities have not proved that. “Until we have definite answers, we will not rule anything out, and we still have more questions than we have answers,” Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace said Tuesday. “We do have

some information that we are not going to release because it would be counterproductive to the investigation.” The reward for information leading to an arrest in the case has grown to $6,500, as Central Mississippi Crime Stoppers has increased its share to $2,500 to go along with $4,000 from family members who want desperately to know what happened to Barrentine, who is believed to have been killed on Thanksgiving Day 2004. “I prayed that God would just let me find her,” said Stacy Hartley, Barrentine’s sister, who knocked on doors, asked questions and searched until Barrentine’s See Answers, Page A9.

LD’s gets OK to add front sign By Manivanh Chanprasith mchan@vicksburgpost.com LD’s Kitchen in downtown Vicksburg will be allowed to paint a new sign on the front of its Mulberry Street building, the Vicksburg Board of Architectural Review decided Tuesday. Owner Larry Prentiss, who was represented by Reggie Taylor at the bi-monthly meeting, was given unanimous approval to paint a sign that reads “LD’s at Catfish Row,” which board members had agreed would comply with city guidelines that say buildings must be compatible with the district’s character. “I can’t think of anything more compatible with the park and the smoke stacks than this sign,” board See LD’s, Page A9.

Tim Cochran, an occupational therapist assistant at Shady Lawn Nursing Home, holds two of the giant sweet potatoes he grew in his home garden. The larger one weighed in at 20 pounds. Cochran said this was his first time to grow the spuds and, to his surprise, he pulled up about 10 large potatoes and a wheelbarrow of regular-sized ones. Cochran planned to share the giant potatoes with the nursing home’s residents.

Gibson. Sandifer was released on an $8,000 bond. Davis said most of those arrested were charged as spectators at a dogfight, a felony. The property owner, Bryan K. Eggleston, faces additional charges and was released on a $15,000 bond. The defendants, from Mississippi, Texas and Alabama, will each have a hearing on Dec. 9 in Claiborne County’s circuit court, Davis said. Claiborne deputies and a state game warden seized 13 dogs, an undisclosed amount

of cash, weapons and at least 30 vehicles in the raid that followed a tip. Davis said he expects more arrests as vehicle owners attempt to claim their seized vehicles. The dogs are being housed at the Vicksburg-Warren Humane Society on U.S. 61 South while awaiting an expected order by 22nd Circuit Court District Judge Lamar Pickard for euthanization. The Claiborne sheriff ’s department has not provided ages and addresses of defendants.

Guns, coins, jewelry missing in burglaries Two residential burglaries were reported in the city Tuesday, Vicksburg police Sgt. Sandra Williams said. At 12:35 p.m., a 30-30 Marlin rifle valued at $400 and a 12-gauge shotgun valued at $250 were reported missing from a home in the 2600 block of Security Street.

At 12:41 p.m., three gold chains valued at $200, a diamond tie pin valued at $200, a bag of coins valued at $30 and two handguns were reported missing from a home in the 2900 block of North Washington Street.

Stew on stove leads to fire A Vicksburg man was pulled out of his smoke-filled apartment around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday after a pot of stew was left on the stove too long, Vicksburg Fire Department Inspector Leslie Decareaux said. Eric Griffi, no age available, 4223 N. Frontage Road Apt. K17, was treated at the scene for smoke inhalation. “I could smell the smoke walking down to my truck,” said neighbor John Weaver, who, along with the complex manager and Vicksburg police officer Wes Miles, found the apartment and unlocked the door. “The smoke poured out of the door when we opened it, and the room was opaque with smoke,” Weaver said. Smoke from the fire could be seen more than a mile away. Miles went into the apartment and dragged Griffi, who had been lying on the couch, out of the apartment. No other injuries were reported, and no damage was reported to other apartments, Decareaux said.

Rail lines could increase business across Mississippi, experts say COLUMBUS (AP) — Restoration of the Columbus and Greenville Railway line could have far-reaching and longlasting results, not just for the areas it touches directly but also for the entire nation. “A lot of freight movers are trying to switch from truck to rail,” said Jody Holland, postdoctoral associate at Mississippi State University’s Geosystems Research Institute. And should a natural disaster or national emergency call for rerouting the rail system, the C&G corridor would be a natural alternative. Holland recently presented the findings of a study looking at the potential of reopening the railway at the Mississippi Association of Political Science’s annual convention, held at Mississippi University for Women. The study looked at three different aspects of reopening the rail, which closed 10 years ago because of poor conditions: transportation cost benefits, work force and economic impact, focusing on Washington, Sunflower, Leflore, Carroll, Montgomery, Webster, Oktibbeha, Clay and Lowndes counties. Researchers conducted interviews in the nine counties to

‘A lot of freight movers are trying to switch from truck to rail.’ Jody Holland

Postdoctoral associate at MSU find out how they would use the rail if it were restored. “Businesses want choices,” Holland said. “It hinders industrial development because industry won’t move in because they need (the rail).” Fifty-six businesses were surveyed throughout the nine counties. “All nine counties are classified as distressed counties,” Holland said, noting each county reported a decline in production operations, economic development and production jobs. A simulation showed particular benefits for the grain mills, biofuels, steel and automaker industries. Holland said Severstal Columbus and its onsite partners and the Toyota plant being built in Blue Springs are businesses with potential to benefit from restoration of the rail line. “Our farmers and industry who produce those raw materi-

als can’t get it to Atlanta to the refineries,” he said. Estimates show that, in the steel industry, restoring the rail would create 240 direct jobs, 450 indirect jobs, a $32 million increase in annual personal income and a $2 million increase in yearly state tax collections. A biofuels company has expressed interest in locating a $53 million facility in Winona, creating 20 direct jobs, 150 indirect jobs, an $8 million increase in annual personal income and $500,000 in yearly state tax collections.

Mississippi judge asks appeals court to restore immunity from being sued JACKSON, Miss. — A Mississippi judge is asking a federal appeals court to restore his immunity from being sued over claims that he knowingly made false claims to authorities. The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals scheduled arguments for Dec. 6 in New Orleans on the appeal filed by Hinds County Judge Houston Patton. In February, U.S. District Judge Tom Lee rejected Patton’s assertion that as a judge he could not be held liable. Patton has been a county court judge since 1990.

No new trial for man in $1.6M fraud case JACKSON, Miss. — A federal judge has refused to grant a new trial for a Madison County man convicted of taking a $1.6 million bank loan to buy a Florida condo and instead spending the money on other things, including a Bentley car. Seneca O. McField was convicted of bank fraud and money laundering in U.S. District Court on Nov. 4. He was accused of making false statements to Merchants and Farmers Bank in 2004 to secure the loan for a condo in Sarasota, Fla. Sentencing is set for Jan. 24.

Ex-medical examiner says guilty in Tenn. NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Former Tennessee Medical Examiner Bruce Levy pleaded guilty in Nashville Tuesday to official misconduct for taking marijuana from evidence lockers. Levy, 50, was arrested in Ridgeland in March 2010 after investigators found a package of pot with his name on it at a distribution center and more of the drug in his hotel room. Levy also did coroner work in Mississippi, but after the arrest both states suspended contracts with his businesses.

Harrah’s changes name to Caesars LAS VEGAS — The world’s largest casino company on Tuesday changed its name to Caesars Entertainment Corp., completing a move it first announced just as the industry began deep and prolonged economic struggles. The privately held company formerly known as Harrah’s Entertainment Inc. said Harrah’s would continue to be one of the company’s brands, along with Caesars, Horseshoe, Total Rewards and the World Series of Poker. The company operates 16 casinos around the country under the Harrah’s brand, and once operated one in Vicksburg, which is now Horizon Casino.

without parole. The Supreme Court had ordered a new sentencing hearing because the trial judge erred in disallowing testimony of a social worker called during the sentencing phase of Kristi Fulgham’s trial. The justices upheld her capital murder conviction in the shooting death of Joey Fulgham at the couple’s Longview community home in 2003 in Oktibbeha County. Kristi Fulgham was convicted and sentenced to death in 2006 in Oktibbeha County.

Protesters rally against ferry closure BATON ROUGE — About 50 people who use the Melville ferry that transports drivers from St. Landry to Pointe Coupee parishes rallied at the Louisiana Capitol on Tuesday to protest the ferry’s closure. The service across the Atchafalaya River is scheduled to end Dec. 31. Department of Transportation and Development officials said the Melville ferry is used less and is more expensive per vehicle than other state ferries.

Fulgham resentenced, gets life without parole Dozens of dead gators found in Louisiana STARKVILLE, Miss. — Kristi Fulgham, whose death sentence was tossed in October, has been resentenced to life without parole in the May 2003 slaying of her estranged husband. Fulgham was sentenced Tuesday by Circuit Judge Lee Howard. District Attorney Forrest Allgood told Howard that the family of Joey Fulgham did not want a second penalty hearing to determine a sentence. Under Mississippi law, only a jury can hand down a death sentence. That left Howard only with the option of sentencing Kristi Fulgham to life

GIBSON, La. — Wildlife agents are investigating dozens of alligator carcasses a Gibson man found on a walk near his house. Dana Jeffcoat said he was walking down an access road and trail that goes behind his trailer when he saw a pile of at least eight alligator carcasses. Jeffcoat also found three more carcass piles with about 35 more remains. He said most of the corpses were missing tails, which are cut off for the meat.

30 YEARS AGO: 1980

You want to do what? Federal officials need to conduct an early review of the screening methods to make sure they’re effective and not abusive. But, folks, security does have a price. The Transportation Security Administration’s recent steppedup screening of airline passengers and crews has created some backlash among flight personnel, consumer groups and privacy rights groups. We’re mostly for anything that will make the airways safer, but criticism that the new methods lend themselves to abuse needs to be addressed. At issue are two new measures, full-body screening machines and a new pat-down method that is much more intrusive into private areas of the body. The TSA needs to be very careful about how these methods are used and make sure that screeners are consistent in their use and don’t abuse passengers. It also needs to make sure that these methods are effective. Concerns of flight crews that the full-body scans pose a health risk need

to be addressed. The TSA and a panel of experts say the scanners are safe, but passengers and air crews deserve more assurance. The full-body scanners — which some liken to a virtual strip search — are intrusive but do provide an extra layer of security. And security remains paramount: Certainly, recent events have shown that there are still people interested in blowing up airplanes. Better to undergo an invasive search than to allow a terrorist on the plane. And better to go through a scanner than to participate in a boycott of such security measures, as an online campaign is urging travelers to do the day before Thanksgiving. Making a point isn’t worth risking the potential for added delay on that busy travel day. According to TSA policy, patdown searches will be used when a passenger sets off a metal detector, chooses not to go through the full-body scanner or when the machine detects something suspicious. The problem

is that the new pat-downs are much more invasive, with screeners using the front of their hands to search, including touching breasts and genitals. Passengers can ask for the search to be conducted in private — which will take more time — and the searches are supposed to be done by screeners of the same sex. That’s fine, but the patdowns are still open to abuse and will be at the very least uncomfortable and very possibly upsetting for many. The TSA’s job is to make sure passengers and air crews are safe. That’s difficult work, and it’s easy to criticize. But these new pat-downs will be going too far if they become indiscriminate and abusive. Passengers should immediately report any instances in which they feel this may be the case. And the TSA should conduct an early and thorough review of its new methods to make sure they work and aren’t too intrusive.

MODERATELY CONFUSED by Bill Stahler

Immigration reform could reduce our long-term deficit WASHINGTON — If you’ve spent any time pondering those dense reports on cutting the deficit, you know that there aren’t any painfree answers around. Any remedy will hurt, since it will have to include raising taxes and reducing benefits. Recommendations for taming the deficit include raising the retirement age, raising the federal gas tax and ending the mortgage interest deduction for homeowners. Ouch! But there is a palliative that would ease the pain: Put 11 million illegal immigrants on a path to legalization. And don’t touch birthright citizenship. Yes, you heard that right: Granting legal residency to illegal immigrants will eventually help sop up some of the federal budget’s red ink. I know that’s counterintuitive since so many citizens have come to believe that Mexican landscapers and Guatemalan maids are a drain on the treasury. But the fact is that their relative youth is just what the U.S. economy needs. The explosion of the long-term

Granting legal residency to illegal immigrants will eventually help sop up some of the federal budget’s red ink.

tucker deficit is largely the consequence of an aging population, with more retirees depending on taxes from fewer workers. While the recession, two unfunded wars and Bush-era tax cuts fueled the immediate deficit, a tsunami of long-term red ink will swamp the budget in about 10 years, as a massive wave of baby boomers leaves the workplace. So we need as many younger workers as we can find to help support the coming crush of senior citizens. The U.S. is lucky enough to have a higher birthrate than many other Westernized democracies, even among native-born women. Immigrants are an added demo-

graphic bonus. “When some people think of immigrants, they think of people coming in and immediately absorbing our resources,” said Emory University economist Jeffrey Rosensweig. “Most immigrants come here to work. They’re young workers, and they’re paying taxes.” Why not add all of them to the federal tax rolls? No economist claims that immigrants alone can solve the problem of paying for entitlements. But former President Bill Clinton, who left office with a balanced budget, has also noted the value of a growing pool of younger workers.

“I don’t think there’s any alternative but for us to increase immigration. ... Taxes will be lower if we’ve got more taxpayers. The pressures on Social Security and the changes we’ll have to make will be slightly less draconian if you have more people contributing into the system,” Clinton said in April, speaking at a fiscal policy summit. That will be a hard sell for the average American who has become convinced that illegal border-crossers are stealing jobs, burdening schools and running up the costs of health care. Until the economy improves, it will be difficult to persuade voters that providing those workers with a path to legal status is in everyone’s best interest. Meanwhile, is it asking too much to expect political leaders to stop their harsh demagoguery? Might they refrain from making matters worse? U.S. Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, upcoming chair of a House subcommittee on immigration, has already announced that he will make a priority of pushing for a vote to rescind birthright citizenship for

the children of illegal immigrants. “Many of these illegal aliens are giving birth to children in the United States so that they can have uninhibited access to taxpayerfunded benefits and to citizenship for as many family members as possible,” he insisted. Well, that’s just nonsense. A child born in the U.S. has to be 21 years old before he can petition for citizenship for his parents. Even then, many hurdles remain. King’s proposal — in the unlikely event it passes — would probably be ruled unconstitutional; it violates the 14th Amendment. But King and his allies are fueling the narrow-mindedness and nativism that have frustrated comprehensive immigration reform since the Bush administration. Climbing out of the deficit hole is going to be hard, no matter what. We need some new taxpayers who can help. •

smart money Q: I signed up to join a business, which I later found out was a scam. When the people there didn’t send me the information or a merchant license within the three days as promised, I immediately contacted my credit card company to BRUCE cancel the $10,000 purchase. While the credit card company is trying to help me get my money back, it claims I have no true legal action to get my money back because what I signed said “purchase is final” and “no refund or cancellation.” Do I have any way to get my money back? Especially since the company did not provide information or the merchant license it promised? — Fern, via e-mail

A: You start out saying you found out it’s a fraud. Is this a feeling on your part or because they didn’t meet the terms that you thought you were entitled to? There is a major difference. Ordinarily in credit card transactions, if the service or product is not delivered, the credit card company will intercede on your behalf. On the other side of that they probably paid the money and have no redress themselves and would far rather have you get stuck than themselves. I would insist that the credit card company give me a full credit while this matter is being contested. I would also make a complaint to the appropriate authorities because they did take your money and did not provide the service that was promised. This points out how important it is to investigate a business before parting with upfront money. •

CHICAGO (AP) — Holiday travelers dismayed by airport body scans planned protests at bustling airports today, while the head of the nation’s transport security agency urged passengers to comply with searches to reduce the possibility of delays on one of the busiest travel days of the year. A loosely organized effort dubbed National Opt-Out Day plans to use flyers, T-shirts and, in one case, a Scottish kilt to highlight what some call unnecessarily intrusive security screenings. Others feared holdups: More than 40 million people plan to travel over the Thanksgiving holiday, according to AAA, with just more than 1.6 million flying — a 3.5 percent increase in fliers from last year. Transportation Security Administration chief John Pistole said today that his agency is “fully staffed” to deal with problems, but that travelers should expect delays because of the planned protests at airports across the country. “I just feel bad for the traveling public that’s just trying to get home for the holidays,” Pistole said, noting that TSA screeners “just want to get you through.” No serious disruptions were reported at any major airports early today. Robert Shofkom wasn’t too worried about delayed flights, maybe just strong breezes. The 43-year-old from Georgetown, Texas, said he planned for weeks to wear a traditional kilt — sans skivvies — to display his outrage over body scanners and aggressive pat-downs while catching his flight today out of Austin. “If you give them an inch, they won’t just take in inch. Pretty soon you’re getting scanned to get into a football game,” the IT specialist said. Shofkom was momentarily disheartened when his wife

The associated press

Aryeh Fishman, 2, of New York, stands with father, David Fishman and mother, Shira Fishman, Tuesday at Newark Liberty International Airport in Newark, N.J. informed him Tuesday that the Austin airport doesn’t yet have body scans. But he decided to wear the kilt anyway, a show of solidarity with fellow protesters who have taken to Facebook and other websites to tout plans for similarly revealing travel outfits. One Internet-based protest group called We Won’t Fly said hundreds of activists would go to 27 U.S. airports today to pass out fliers with messages such as “You have the right to say, ‘No radiation strip search! No groping of genitals!’ Say, ‘I opt out.”’ “If 99 percent of people normally agree to go through scanners, we hope that falls to 95 percent,” said one organizer, George Donnelly, 39. “That would make it a success.” If enough people opt for a pat-down rather than a body scan, security-line delays could quickly cascade. Body scans for passengers chosen at random take as little as 10 seconds. New pat-down procedures, which involve a security worker touching travelers’ crotch and chest areas, can take 4 minutes or longer.

Pistole urged travelers to “be prepared” for the scanners, and reassured them that the images can’t be relayed elsewhere. “If you go through (a screener), it’s a blurred image seen by a security officer in another office. The images are not capable of being stored or transmitted,” Pistole said. The full-body scanners show

a traveler’s physical contours on a computer in a private room removed from security checkpoints. But critics say they amount to virtual strip searches. Jonathan Schaeffer was planning to head to the Baltimore airport, where he said he would hand out copies of the constitution and a pamphlet explaining how to opt out of the full-body search. “I think it should be emphasized that . the delays are because of the protocol that the TSA is refusing to revise,” he said. About 70 airports nationwide have more than 400 of the refrigerator-sized imaging units. Only around 20 percent of travelers are asked to go through them, but passengers cannot opt out of both the scan and the patdown once they have been randomly selected for the enhanced searches. Officials said the procedures are necessary to ward off terror attacks like the attempted bombing of a Detroit-bound plane last Christmas by a Nigerian man who stashed explosives in his underwear.

Obama pledges U.S. to defend its ally South Korea after attacks WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama on Tuesday pledged the United States would stand “shoulder to shoulder� with South Korea after what the White House branded a provocative, outrageous attack by North Korea on its neighbor. Its options limited, the U.S. sought a diplomatic

rather a military response to one of the most ominous clashes between the Koreas in decades. “South Korea is our ally. It has been since the Korean war,� Obama said in his first comments about the North Korean shelling of a South Korean island early Tuesday.

“And we strongly affirm our commitment to defend South Korea as part of that alliance,� he said. Working to head off any escalation, the U.S. did not reposition any of its 29,000 troops in the South or make other military moves after North Korea fired salvos of shells into the island, setting

off an artillery duel between the two sides. The president would not speculate when asked about military options. Obama called South Korean President Lee Myung-bak later Tuesday night, saying the U.S. would work with the international community to strongly condemn the attack

that killed the two South Koreans and injured many more, the White House said. The White House said the two presidents agreed to hold combined military exercises and enhanced training in the days ahead to continue the close security cooperation between the two countries. Obama assured Lee that

“the United States stands shoulder to shoulder with our close friend and ally, the Republic of Korea,� the White House statement said. Meanwhile, rescuers found the burned bodies today of two islanders killed in the attack.

Homeland proposing end to color-coded terror alerts WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Homeland Security Department is proposing to discontinue the color-coded terror alert system that became a symbol of the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s post9/11 jitters and the butt of latenight talk show jokes. The 8-year-old system, with its rainbow of five colors â&#x20AC;&#x201D; from green, signifying a low

threat, to red, meaning severe â&#x20AC;&#x201D; became a fixture in airports, government buildings and on newscasts. Over the past four years, millions of travelers have begun and ended their trips to the sound of airport recordings warning that the threat level is orange. The systemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s demise would not be the end of terror alerts;

instead, the alerts would become more descriptive and not as colorful. In the past two years, Obama administration officials have changed security protocols without changing the color of the threat, such as introducing new airport security measures after a terrorist tried to bring down a Detroitbound jetliner last Christmas.

By scrapping the colors, President Barack Obama would abandon a system that critics long have said was too vague to be useful and that Democrats criticized as a political scare tactic. And it would represent a formal undoing of one of the George W. Bush administrationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most visible legacies. Transportation Security

Administration chief John Pistole said on ABCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Good Morning Americaâ&#x20AC;? that he believes the aim of the administrationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan is to help people better understand concepts about danger that might be too vague when conveyed through the color-coded system. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that is under review to make it

meaningful and relevant to the American people,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just not sure how relevant it is.â&#x20AC;? He called Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitanoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s internal review â&#x20AC;&#x153;just a commonsense approachâ&#x20AC;? and said she should be credited with â&#x20AC;&#x153;making some judgments going forward.â&#x20AC;?

Probe: Bridge sway caused Cambodian stampede

Sherri and Bill Battles with a large Standard Bronze Tom Heritage turkey

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about taste: Farm breeding rare turkeys WESTPORT, Mass. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Bill and Sherri Battles know the best way to save their rare red, gray and brown turkeys is to eat them. Owners of a 25-acre farm in Westport, Mass., the Battles are among a small but growing number of farmers raising breeds of turkey with bloodlines that date back centuries yet are quite different â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in size, taste and price â&#x20AC;&#x201D; from the vast majority of birds sold at todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supermarkets. Known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;heritageâ&#x20AC;? turkeys, their survival may well hinge on Americansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; willingness to create a market for them by putting them on their Thanksgiving tables. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are breeds that in order to keep them from becoming extinct, farmers have to raise them and people have to be willing to try them,â&#x20AC;? said Sherri Battles, 44, as her husband placed a feed bucket in front of a gobbling gang of Narragansett, Bourbon Red, Chocolate and

other heritage turkeys on a recent November day. Domesticated breeds such as these were consumed for generations, but by the 1960s they began to be pushed aside in favor of the Broad Breasted White, a commercial breed developed to yield a meatier breast. The Broad Breasted White reaches maturity in half the time as older breeds, making it cheaper to raise, cheaper to sell and creating lucrative markets for deli meat, ground turkey and other byproducts. The National Agricultural Statistics Service estimates that nearly 242 million turkeys will be produced in the U.S. in 2010. Heritage birds make up only a tiny fraction. Few major supermarket chains sell heritage turkeys, so few Americans have actually tasted them. Those who have generally note the birds have more dark meat and a flavor distinct from commercial turkeys.

PHNOM PENH, Cambodia â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A swaying bridge loaded with thousands of people sparked mass panic and set off a raging stampede that killed more than 350 people in Cambodiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital, according to a government investigation. Crowds celebrating a water festival had flocked to an island for a free concert Monday and spilled onto a bridge to the mainland before the panic took hold. Bayon TV, which serves as a mouthpiece for the government, reported today that a committee found many people on the span were from the countryside and unaware it was normal for a suspension bridge to sway. In their fear it was collapsing, they tried to run off. Information Minister Khieu Kanharith said today the official death toll was 351 dead with 395 injured, though one government ministry said it could be more then 450.

The hearing lasted only 15 minutes, as the presid-

ing judge agreed to adjourn the case until Dec. 11, when the jury will hear a summary of the first trial and the requests for appeal. The 23-year-old Knox returned to the same coed courtroom where in December she burst into tears as she was handed the conviction for sexually assaulting and murdering Meredith Kercher, and a 26-year prison term. Escorted by a policewoman, a crowd of cameramen and photographers awaiting her, Knox walked across the courtroom and took her usual seat at a desk between her two lawyers. A policeman stood guard behind her.

PRECISION FORECAST

Continued from Page A1. submerged truck holding her remains was discovered in the Big Black River near the Bovina train bridge on Aug. 2, 2005. “But it wasn’t good enough. Now I want to know who, and why and how.” Pace, who has worked on the case with deputies, the Vicksburg Police Department, the Hinds County Sheriff’s Department and investigators from the FBI and the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation, would not say if suspects have been identified or discuss results of examinations performed on the remains. “As with any investigation, you never want to show all of your cards,” he said. Hinds County investigators, also on the case for six years, said today they have no leads and no new information. The family last saw Barrentine around 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 24, 2004. Her grandparents, Buster and Cissie Schultz, went to her Vicksburg home to make sure she would be at their home the next day for Thanksgiving dinner. Barrentine, then 27, the mother of a 9-year-old girl and recently remarried, was cooking dinner. She told the grandparents who helped raise her that she would be there. She never arrived. The next day, Hartley and Cummins reported her missing to Vicksburg police. Eventually, it was learned that Barrentine, who had struggled with drug addiction since her teen years, had gone to Edwards that Wednesday night, after the Schultzes’ visit, returned to her home to get money and drove back to Edwards. She never went back to her home. Witnesses in Edwards placed Barrentine at Belknap and Military roads driving her 1997 Ford F-150 pickup around 11:30 a.m. Thanksgiving Day. Many others were questioned, and some were subjected to polygraph and other tests, including Barrentine’s husband of about six weeks, Daniel. Then-VPD deputy chief Richard O’Bannon said at the time that Daniel Barrentine agreed to a voice stress test and the results indicated he was being honest with police. Over the years, new investigators have been put on the case to see it through fresh eyes but no one has been able to rule out the possibility of an accident. The area

Angela Schultz Shiers Barrentine’s sister, Stacy Hartley, left, and mother, Deborah Cummins, hold a Crime Stoppers poster near the site where Barrentine’s truck was found after she disappeared six years ago. where Barrentine’s truck is presumed to have entered the Big Black is a small parking area along a dirt portion of Warriors Trail, and the river was high and close to the road at the time she disappeared. But Hartley and Cummins believe Barrentine was on her way to the family dinner when she was either lured to the site at Warriors Trail and killed or killed first and driven to the river in the truck. Hartley said she would like to see the case reopened and investigated as if it happened yesterday. She has questions she won’t ask publicly for fear they’ll raise issues that would impede the investigation. Cummins agrees. “I just don’t believe this case was handled right from day one,” she said. Some of

the investigators seemed to believe Barrentine’s disappearance translated into one less drug addict they had to deal with rather than a mother, a daughter and a sister, she said. “She was an addict,” Hartley said. “She wasn’t a dealer. An addict has a problem. The dealer is the one who is out pushing it to kids, and users. The dealer’s one of the bad people, in my eyes.” Meanwhile, posters announcing the increased reward for information are being distributed, and the family goes on. Hartley and her husband are raising Barrentine’s daughter, now 15. “She asked me the other day, ‘Where do you think I would be today if my mama hadn’t been killed? I don’t think I’d be where I am today,’” Hartley said. And Barrentine’s grand-

mother, Cissie Schultz, died in May 2008. “My grandmother’s wish was to find out who did this before she died,” said Hartley, fighting back tears. “She didn’t get her wish. I tried. The one reason I didn’t stop was that I promised (Angela’s daughter) I wouldn’t stop until I found her mama.” Each Thanksgiving makes the memories harder. “It’s with me all the time but it gets worse during the holidays,” Cummins said. “The first few years I didn’t even go to Thanksgiving because that’s when it happened. But I had to remember, I have other kids and grandkids.” “It’s just as hard now as the day it happened,” Hartley said. “It does hurt me the case has gone cold.”

• Jason Allen Ashley, 31, has been missing since May 24. On June 11, 19 days after he was last seen and 16 days after he was reported missing, Ashley’s gray 2000 Jeep Cherokee was found in Issaquena County off Floweree Road — three miles from the Warren County home he shared with his mother and 6-year-old son — and showed no signs of a struggle. The search for Ashley has included air and foot patrols, all-terrain vehicles, horseback and partially draining an area of Mahannah Wildlife Management Area. • Benjamin Bearrick, 56, disappeared from his home on Warriors Trail in January 2009, two days after taking his tenant, Shawn Sponholz, to River Region Medical Center with a fatal stab wound,. Bearrick had been questioned about Sponholz’s death by sheriff’s department investigators and released. • The 1995 high-profile disappearance of Mary Jacqueline Levitz from her home at 15 Riverwood Circle also remains unsolved. Blood found at the home belonged to Levitz, who was heir to the fortune created by Levitz Furniture, a chain of retail stores. Torn false fingernails found scattered on the floor also belonged to the 62-yearold socialite. Her creamcolored Jaguar remained in the driveway. A door to the house was unlocked. Jackie Levitz only weeks earlier had moved to Vicksburg from Florida to be closer to family members near Oak Grove, La. Central Mississippi Crime Stoppers offers up to $2,500 for information leading to arrests. • In all three, Sheriff Martin Pace said, foul play is suspected because of the length of time since the people were last seen, though the cases remain classified as missing persons cases.

Election Continued from Page A1. eral election, which featured races for Congress and the school board. Jefferson, 51, the operator of Jefferson Funeral Association, was appointed to the post last year and now will serve the remainder of former judge Richard Bradford’s unexpired term. The seat comes up for election again next year during the county and state election cycle, highlighted statewide by races for governor and lieutenant governor and locally by legislative contests and those for county supervisor and sheriff.

Jefferson said as justice court judge and a member of a local justice system committee, he will continue to support a mental health court for justice court defendants and some type of community service to work off fines — not currently done outside the city. “I know there’s some idiosyncrasies to be worked out there, but they’ll be a good thing,” Jefferson said. Walker, 58, spoke easily with Jefferson after vote counts pointed the incumbent’s way, touting the two men’s friendship. Walker,

a former constable for the city-based district, predicted his health will be a factor in whether he’ll seek public office again next year. Judges in justice court hear small-claims cases of up to $3,500, misdemeanor criminal cases and traffic offenses occurring outside city limits. They also conduct bond hearings and preliminary hearings in felony criminal cases and have the authority to issue search warrants. Justice court judges are not required to possess a law degree, but they must complete state training.

Five judicial races decided across state JACKSON (AP) — Collins attorney David Shoemake defeated veteran Chancery Judge Larry Buffington on Tuesday in a runoff for a south Mississippi judgeship. Buffington had been on the bench for 16 years in the 13th Chancery District. Five judicial races were decided Tuesday. In south Mississippi, Sumrall attorney Dawn Beam defeated

Columbia attorney Scott Phillips to become a chancery judge in District 10. Beam succeeds Judge Sebe Dale Jr. of Columbia, who did not seek re-election after 32 years on the bench. In the 13th Circuit District, Eddie Bowen, who was appointed by Gov. Haley Barbour after the death of Circuit Judge Robert Evans in July, defeated Collins lawyer

Wilton McNair. In a northwest Mississippi, Hernando lawyer Gerald W. Chatham defeated Stan Little for a new judgeship in five counties. In north Mississippi, West Point attorney Lee S. Coleman defeated Nebra Porter to win in the 16th Circuit District. The four counties in the district are Lowndes, Clay, Oktibbeha and Noxubee.

JACKSON (AP) — Quarterback Jeremiah Masoli of Ole Miss leads the list of 10 nominees for the 2010 Cellular South Conerly Trophy, which honors Mississippi’s top college football player. The trophy will be presented Tuesday during a ceremony at the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame and Museum in Jackson. Masoli was one of seven quarterbacks among the 10 finalists, which are selected through voting by the state’s media. One finalist is selected from each of Mississippi’s 10 footballplaying colleges and universities. The other finalists are: quarterback Brandon Bridge, Alcorn State; quarterback Alex Williams, Belhaven; quarterback Micah Davis, Delta State; quarterback Casey Therriault, Jackson State; running back Shane Bowser, Millsaps; quarterback Tommy Reyer, Mississippi College; linebacker Chris White, Mississippi State; defensive back Markkus Davis, Mississippi Valley State; and Southern Miss quarterback Austin Davis. Mississippi State running back Anthony Dixon, now a rookie with the San Francisco 49ers, won the award last year.

LOTTERY La. Pick 3: 9-8-7 La. Pick 4: 2-3-4-1 Weekly results: B2

An incredible comeback by Warren Central went for naught Tuesday. After overcoming an eightpoint deficit in the final 45 seconds to tie Crystal Springs, the Vikings couldn’t come up with another miracle and lost 98-94 in double overtime. Crystal Springs (5-2) scored the first 10 points of the second overtime to take command. Warren Central coach Jesse Johnson said his young team learned a great lesson about how to come back in a dire situation, but must also learn to finish. “Our youth made us lose this game,” Johnson said. “What happened in the overtimes, was our youth. We have some great talent, we’re just young.” Kory Davis, a sophomore, had a game-high 30 points to go with six assists, five steals and six rebounds for WC (3-3). Yet, as Johnson pointed out, he could’ve easily scored more had some easy shots fallen. “Kory missed a ton of shots, but we need him to keep taking them,” Johnson said. “We are going to ride him all year.” WC’s Eric Howard was huge at the end of regulation and the overtimes. He finished with 18 points, 16 of which came in the final three minutes of the fourth quarter and overtime. Crystal Springs coach Bradrick Owens was just glad to escape with a win. “I applaud my guys for hanging in there and getting us a win,” Owens said. “Yeah, we didn’t do a very good job of closing it out there in regulation. But they gave great effort in the overtimes to win the game.” Two free throws by Roman Lofton, who led the Tigers with 25 points, made it 72-64 with 44.4 seconds left. Then the fun began. Howard made a quick layup and a steal at mid-court by Kory Davis led to a 3-pointer by Jeremy Harper that cut it to 72-69 with 21.9 seconds left. A steal by Cory Davis, the

Warren Central’s Jeremy Harper drives with the ball against Crystal Springs’ Kandarius Williams on Tuesday. Harper scored 19 points, but the Vikings lost 98-94. Vikings reserve point guard, was converted when Howard drained a 3-pointer from the right corner to tie the game at 72 with 9.9 seconds left. A second Kory Davis steal gave WC a chance to win at the horn, but his 10-foot runner missed. Howard kept up his hot hand with four straight points to begin the first overtime. WC went up 78-73, but needed a layup by Harper in the closing seconds to send it to a second overtime. The Tigers, who shot 65 percent from the field in regulation, made their first five

shots in the final overtime to take a 92-82 lead. WC rallied to get within three, at 92-89, before Lofton hit four free throws down the stretch to put it away.

(G) Warren Central 32, Crystal Springs 30 Michelle Jones’ free throw with 17 seconds left and a big defensive rebound by Elayne Robinson helped the Lady Vikes (1-5) earn their first win of the season. WC nearly let a 10-point third quarter lead go to

waste. The Lady Vikes went over six minutes without scoring in the fourth quarter and allowed Crystal Springs to take a 29-28 lead. A 12-foot jumper by Sh’qulla Neal put WC back ahead 31-30, and Jones’ free throw extended it to a two-point lead. The Lady Tigers tried for a tying basket but Robinson, who finished with 11 rebounds, came up with the clinching board. Jones finished with nine points and six rebounds to lead WC. Ladonna Moore had 11 points for Crystal Springs.

Big offensive day leaves Tigers smiling BATON ROUGE, La. — In the moments following LSU’s wild 43-36 victory over Ole Miss last week, there was some hand-wringing in the Rebels’ locker room about missed opportunities and griping about questionable calls. There was also some consolation, on a smaller scale, that none of it ultimately played a factor in the outcome. On a day when its normally staunch defense was shredded like wet tissue paper, LSU’s offense had one of its best days of the season. The Tigers amassed 470 yards and reached its highest point total against a Southeastern Conference opponent since scoring 48 in a triple-overtime loss to Arkansas in 2007. It was sweet redemption for a unit that has taken plenty of flak despite the team’s 10-1

record (6-1 in SEC play) and status as a contender for a slot in a BCS bowl heading into this Saturday’s game at No. 12 Arkansas (9-2, 5-2). “The whole year our defense has been helping us out. It was about time for the offense to come in here and help the defense out,” said tight end Deangelo Peterson, who caught three passes for 76 yards. “We knew that Ole Miss could come in here and run the same plays Auburn did. We had to help our defense as much as we could, and I think we did that.” LSU only punted twice and turned it over once in 14 offensive possessions. Quarterback Jordan Jefferson completed 13 of 17 passes for 254 yards and a score, and was also extremely effective in the option game. He finished with 45 yards and a touchdown on the ground, and ran in a two-point conversion. Even Jefferson’s TD pass

JACKSON — Last week’s Strikeforce/Challengers card in Jackson was a success not only at the gate, with 1,600 in attendance, but also for two Mississippi fighters. Vicksburg’s Jeremiah Riggs pulled out a unanimous decision over former training partner James Sharp of Biloxi, 29-28. Wes Shivers, a 6-foot-7, 280pound Brandon resident, rocked Tupelo’s Goldman Butler with a devastating first round knockout. Riggs, a former Porters Chapel Academy football player, earned his fourth straight win and improved his professional record to 7-5. Strikeforce/Challengers executive Shannon Knapp said Riggs still needs some seasoning, but was on their radar as a fighter to watch. “Riggs definitely kept his win streak going, which was important for us,” Knapp said. “We will keep him in mind when we do our matchmaking process. Until then, Jeremiah I think Riggs he needs another fight somewhere in the Southeast.” Riggs’ manager, Allen Sircy, said that’s the plan. “I think the Strikeforce folks liked what they saw out of Jeremiah tonight,” Sircy said. “Tonight, he got hit hard, it ticked him off and then he came back and pressed the action. He did what he needed to do and that was to win the fight. We’re probably going to get him a fight in the Nashville area soon.” Riggs was dropped in the first round by a crunching overhand right by Sharp, but bounced back. “I hit him with a good shot,” Sharp said. “I was hoping he wouldn’t get up but he recovered a lot quicker than I had hoped.” Riggs said he knew he couldn’t stay up and box Sharp. Riggs took him to the ground and nearly got a submission late in the second round. In the third, he got on top again and kept up the pressure to secure the decision. “I was really happy to get this win,” Riggs said. “Now, I can wait on the phone to ring. It was also big for me, personally, because my dad is in Afghanistan and I wanted to do this for him.” Shivers, a former Mississippi State football star, turned in the most impressive performance of the night. He rocked Butler with a devastating right hand for the knockout, and lifted his record to 8-1. “I would definitely say that Wes Shivers is someone we want in Strikeforce/Challenger,” Knapp said. “First, he is a big ol’ boy at 6-7. Secondly, he has a great story being a former football player and now is a deputy sheriff. He just has that presence about him that you look for.”

nascar Hendrick shuffles lineups for teams CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Hendrick Motorsports made sweeping changes to its organization Tuesday, shuffling the lineup for every team except five-time defending champion Jimmie Johnson. Dale Earnhardt Jr., who has just one win through three seasons with HMS, now will be paired with crew chief Steve Letarte. He will move into the building that Letarte shares with Johnson and crew chief Chad Knaus. Four-time NASCAR champion Jeff Gordon will move out of that shop to work with crew chief Alan Gustafson. That team will be partnered with crew chief Lance McGrew and Mark Martin. Johnson won six races this season, and his fifth straight Sprint Cup championship. But Hendrick’s other three drivers went winless, and only Gordon made the Chase.

MLB Braves set to part with Glaus, Lee ATLANTA — The Atlanta Braves are clearing the way for Freddie Freeman to win the job at first base by declining to offer salary arbitration to Troy Glaus, Derrek Lee and Eric Hinske. The Braves also said Tuesday they are not offering salary arbitration to outfielder Rick Ankiel and right-hander Kyle Farnsworth. Freeman hit only .167 with one homer in 24 at-bats late this past season, but is regarded as the team’s top power prospect. Glaus hit .240 with 16 homers and 71 RBIs. Lee hit .287 with three homers and 24 RBIs after he was traded to Atlanta from the Chicago Cubs on Aug. 18. Hinske played left field, first base and third base. Major league clubs faced a deadline of midnight Tuesday to decide whether to offer eligible players arbitration.

Narrow escapes keep adding up for LSU By Brett Martel The Associated Press BATON ROUGE, La. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; LSU linebacker Kelvin Sheppard is thinking about keepsakes he could collect when the fifth-ranked Tigers wrap up what â&#x20AC;&#x201D; surprisingly â&#x20AC;&#x201D; could go down as one of the finest seasons in the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 108 years. The Tigers were picked in the Southeastern Conferenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2010 preseason poll to finish fourth in the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Western Division. Since then, LSU (10-1, 6-1 SEC) has won six games by seven or fewer points, including one game in which they held on by breaking up a last-second pass in the end zone, and three games in which they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take their final lead until less than a minute remained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m definitely going to keep the poster of whatever we end up doing this season on the wall,â&#x20AC;? Sheppard said, referring to a promotional poster that has LSUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s schedule on it with a place to write in final scores. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You really got to look at the wins and how we won them and the environments we won them in, against all those Top 20 teams that we played. This is probably one of the biggest seasons ever in LSU history.â&#x20AC;? LSU has gone 4-1 against ranked opponents and has one regular season game left this Saturday in Little Rock, Ark., against high-scoring, 12thranked Arkansas (9-2, 5-2) and its prolific quarterback, Ryan Mallett. If the Tigers can pull out another victory in a rivalry that has had its share of last-minute drama in recent years, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll reach 11 wins for only the sixth time ever and the fourth time since coach Les Miles took over in 2005. It would also mark only the second time in school history that LSU finished a regular campaign at 11-1, with their BCS championship season of 2003 being the other. And such a finish would likely result in a BCS bowl bid. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like the position that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in,â&#x20AC;? Miles said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As we get to the back end of the season we have a lot to play for and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a wonderful thing.â&#x20AC;? Speaking before practice on Monday, several LSU players asserted that the chance to improve to 11-1 matters

The associated press

Below, LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson reacts after scoring a touchdown. regardless of whether that mark winds up being good enough for them to sneak into the BCS title game â&#x20AC;&#x201D; an unlikely possibility that could happen only if a couple of the four unbeaten teams ranked above the Tigers stumble. An 11-1 mark â&#x20AC;&#x153;would mean so much not only to me, but for coach Miles as well,â&#x20AC;? LSU star cornerback Patrick Peterson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taken a lot of heat. ... It was tough, but this team, we kept fighting.â&#x20AC;? Although Miles is 61-16 at LSU and has won four bowl games, including two BCS bowls and one national title, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been under a lot of scrutiny. LSU finished with fewer than 10 wins in 2008 and 2009 and lost key SEC games both years. Early this season, dissatisfaction with Miles raged on call-in shows after LSU nearly blew a big halftime lead and held on in the final seconds against a North Carolina team that sat out 13 players because of an NCAA investigation. Four weeks later, it got worse when LSU appeared to have

The sixth-ranked Tigers take on No. 12 Arkansas this Saturday in Little Rock, and will likely earn a bid to a BCS bowl with a victory.

lost to underdog Tennessee in Tiger Stadium on a botched, time-wasting final play near the Volunteers goal line. LSU got a reprieve when Tennessee had too many defenders on the field, allowing the Tigers to run one more play with no time left and escape with the win. The next week at Florida, Miles called a risky fake field goal to set up the winning TD with six seconds left. Against Alabama, a reverse toss play to a tight end on fourth-and-short proved pivotal in a 24-21 win over former coach Nick Saban. Then, last weekend, LSU didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take its final lead on upset-minded Ole Miss until 44 seconds remained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been showing up in fourth quarters this year; we seem to buckle down and throw it into overdrive,â&#x20AC;? offensive lineman T-Bob Hebert said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good feeling after some rough losses the last couple years ... A lot of games could have gone the other way, but I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a testament to this teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s will to win and just how hard we all fight.â&#x20AC;?

Injuries help Saints develop depth on roster METAIRIE, La. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; If Reggie Bush finally returns to action at Dallas on Thanksgiving, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll join a Saints squad that has rattled off four double-digit wins in its last five games without him. If 2009 All-Pro safety Darren Sharper returns, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll rejoin a defense that is second in the NFL against the pass, despite the fact that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s missed seven of the Saintsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 10 games. It turns out that injuries to an array of key regulars have given the defending champs a chance to see how deep they really are, and coach Sean Payton hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been disappointed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got good depth and I think for us itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been important with the injuries weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had,â&#x20AC;? Payton said after Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s practice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the things that happens when you have injuries is you begin to develop your depth ... maybe earlier than you normally would have planned. When you can do that and still win, then thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s encouraging because guys gain experience, they gain playing time and they gain confidence.â&#x20AC;? During a 34-19 victory over Seattle on Sunday, the Saints (7-3) were without Bush (fibula), running back Pierre Thomas (left ankle), tight end Jeremy Shockey (bruised ribs), Sharper (left hamstring), and defensive back Malcolm Jenkins (shoulder), who has started much of the season at free safety, but also filled in at cornerback a month ago

b e c au s e o f injuries to the two starters at that position, Jabari Greer and Tracy Porter. When the Saints can win Reggie handily withBush out a handful of regulars, Sharper said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You start to see when we get everyone back what type of team we can have, how explosive we can be, how dominating we can be.â&#x20AC;? Sharper hopes to return at Dallas and said he believes he could win his starting job back if heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s healthy, but also conceded that the defensive backfield has played well without him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got about eight deep that either have started for us this year and have played as well as a starter would be expected to,â&#x20AC;? Sharper said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It helps you because during the football season you know youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have guys go down.â&#x20AC;? Since Week 4, the Saints have been without any of the top four running backs with which they opened training camp. Reserves Lynell Hamilton and P.J. Hill went out for the year during the preseason, then Bush went out in Week 2 and Thomas in Week 3. New Orleans has filled the void with undrafted rookie Chris Ivory and a couple of free agents who were job-hunting after the regular season had

begun, Ladell Betts and Julius Jones. Betts and Jones have been effective in spurts, while Ivory has emerged as the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading rusher this season, gaining 481 yards in New Orleansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; last eight games. Ivory had 158 yards in a win at Tampa Bay and last weekend had 99 yards and a touchdown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We feel like thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tremendous amount of potential with this player and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re obviously excited to have found him after the draft,â&#x20AC;? Payton said. Bush, who practiced on Tuesday and is optimistic heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll return this week, said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been impressed by the rest of the running back corps, as well as reserves at other positions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They seem to just be stepping up and making plays and I think in the past few years thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of been an issue for us,â&#x20AC;? Bush said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had the guys or they havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had the experience to come in and play.â&#x20AC;? Shockey also returned to practice on a limited basis this week. He was hurt two games ago while making a touchdown catch at Carolina. His replacement, rookie Jimmy Graham, made his first career touchdown catch later that same game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sean and our coaching staff do a great job of putting guys in position to succeed at what they do well, and giving them opportunities,â&#x20AC;? Brees said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of nice to see some of these young guys who are emerging stars.â&#x20AC;? With Shockey still out against Seattle, Graham was one of the leading receivers with five catches for 72 yards, including a difficult fingertip grab of a ball by his knees as he was sprinting across the middle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of those guys that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m talking about, one of these young guys that obviously wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t here last year but is fitting in well,â&#x20AC;? Brees said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shockey goes down and he has to step up and plays a pretty key role and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a great addition. ... Opportunities should be coming to that guy.â&#x20AC;? On Tuesday, the Saints added another minor piece by signing rookie Justin Drescher as their third long snapper this season. Drescher played at Colorado in college and began his NFL career as an undrafted free agent with Atlanta last spring. He was waived by the Falcons in June. He replaces Jake Ingram, who was waived after playing only the one game against Seattle. The addition of Drescher means that the long snapper, holder and kicker on Saints field goals all went to the same high school in the Dallas area. Like Drescher, Saints kicker Garrett Hartley and backup quarterback Chase Daniel attended Southlake Carroll High School.

Tigers Continued from Page B1. ruled a pass 27 yards to the end zone to put LSU ahead 35-30 with 7:30 left in the game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was a point in time when I was 8-for-8 and I just felt like I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be stopped. I just had that hot hand,â&#x20AC;? Jefferson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With (offensive coordinator Gary Crowton) being aggressive and opening the playbook, that just kept me comfortable and very consistent throughout the game.â&#x20AC;? The Tigers also didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t panic late in the game, when Ole Miss had an answer for nearly everything the Tigers threw at it. Ole Miss scored to take the lead three times in the final 20 minutes, the last a 65-yard touchdown pass from Jeremiah Masoli to Markeith Summers with 4:57 remaining. Summers dove into the end zone, drawing a 15-yard celebration penalty that led to LSU getting the ball near midfield following a long return by Patrick Peterson on the ensuing kickoff. Whether LSU had the ball at the 50 or the 5, however, there seemed little doubt its red-hot offense would find a way to score. LSU rolled down the field, taking nine plays â&#x20AC;&#x201D; all rushes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to cover the 51 yards to the end zone. Only once did the Tigers face a third down. Stevan Ridley rushed for seven yards to the Ole Miss 7 to convert a thirdand-one, then ran it in for the touchdown on the next play to put LSU ahead 41-36 with 44 seconds left. Jefferson added the twopoint conversion run for a seven-point lead, and the Tigers breathed a sigh of relief as their hopes for a BCS bowl bid survived a major scare. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were very confident,â&#x20AC;? Jefferson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our main thing was to wind some time down on the clock because we knew we were going to get the first down. We just had some backs come in and run the ball like we needed to. Coach Crowton gave us some great plays to run in that drive, and we were just trying to make sure we were staying away from a repeat of last year.â&#x20AC;?

Colorado’s Alec Burks, right, puts up a shot over Alcorn State’s Ian Francis during the first half of Tuesday’s game. Colorado won, 91-51.

Colorado crushes Alcorn State College basketball

By The Associated Press First-year Colorado coach Tad Boyle was so intent on conveying the importance of defense and rebounding to his team that for the first time in their careers, the Buffaloes’ top two offensive stars began a game on the bench. Alec Burks and Cory Higgins got the message, coming off the bench to deliver on the defensive and offensive ends. Burks scored 22 points and Higgins had 16 in Colorado’s 91-51 victory over winless Alcorn State on Tuesday. “We didn’t play perfect, but you hold a team to 28 percent field-goal shooting and outrebound them by 14 as a team, those are the things we’re looking for,” Boyle said. Marcus Relphorde added 15 points for Colorado (2-2), which won its fifth in a row at home dating to last season. Marquiz Baker’s 13 points led Alcorn State (0-4). He was the only player to score in double figures for the Braves, who have been beaten by an average of 37 points. Alcorn took a 10-8 lead on Baker’s 3-pointer 5:33 into the game, but that was its highwater mark. Colorado went on a 20-0 run over the next five minutes. The Buffaloes finished with a season high in points, outshooting the Braves from the field 47.8 percent to 28.1 percent. Alcorn State fired up 3-pointers to try to get back in the game, but wound up making only 3 of 16. The Braves also were outrebounded 50-36. “We couldn’t stay in front of them,” Alcorn State coach Larry Smith said. “They’re a good team and they made their shots. We had open looks. We just couldn’t knock down our shots and they knocked down theirs.”

BYU 86, MVSU 36 Jimmer Fredette scored 16 points and Jackson Emery added 15 to help No. 23 BYU cruise over winless Mississippi Valley State in the second game of the South Padre Island Invitational. BYU (4-0) led 37-10 at halftime, matching its all-time record for fewest points allowed in the first half. Through the first eight minutes, BYU and Valley were a combined 4-of-20 shooting with 13 turnovers. The Cougars led just 6-5 and 12-7 before Fredette hit his first 3-pointer. From there, BYU never looked back as Valley (0-4) shot just 25 percent overall and committed 25 turnovers.

Duke 82, Kansas St. 68 Freshman guard Kyrie Irving and senior guard Nolan Smith both had 17 points and led No. 1 Duke’s (5-0) outstanding defensive effort on Kansas State’s Jacob Pullen, as the Blue Devils beat the fourthranked Wildcats to win the O’Reilly Auto Parts CBE Classic. The win was No. 800 at Duke for Mike Krzyzewski, making him the fifth coach to reach that figure at one school. The Blue Devils have won 27 straight games in November and under Krzyzewski are 107-10 in that month.

Connecticut 70, Michigan St. 67 Kemba Walker scored 30 points and hit a key jumper with less than a minute left, helping Connecticut (4-0) outlast No. 2 Michigan State (3-1)

in a physical Maui Invitational semifinal. Walker hit a fallaway jumper with 52 seconds left and Alex Oriakhi dominated inside for 15 points and 17 rebounds. Michigan State had three chances to tie in the final 20 seconds, but Draymond Green missed two free throws, Kalin Lucas threw a pass to no one and Green was just short on a halfcourt heave at the buzzer.

Kentucky 74, Washington 67 Terrence Jones had 16 points and 17 rebounds, and Brandon Knight scored 24 points to help No. 8 Kentucky hold off the 13th-ranked Huskies in the Maui Invitational semifinals. A 4.7 earthquake centered on the Big Island shook courtside tables and chairs with about 6 minutes left, but play continued and few people in the gym seemed to notice. They were too busy watching the back-and-forth action. Kentucky (4-0) had an abysmal night from 3-point range — 3-for-17 — but smothered Washington on the perimeter defensively. Isaiah Thomas had 13 points on 3-of-11 shooting and Justin Holiday added 11 for Washington (3-1), which shot 38 percent and was 3-for-13 on 3-pointers after hitting 17 the night before.

Brown leads Lakers past Bulls By The Associated Press

Knicks 110, Bobcats 107

Shannon Brown tried not to take it personally when his hometown team showed no real interest in him last summer during free agency. The Chicago Bulls probably wish they had picked up the phone after watching the Lakers’ dynamic backup step in front of Kobe Bryant to help beat them. Brown hit five 3-pointers and matched his season high with 21 points, and Bryant added 20 points in Los Angeles’ fifth straight victory, 98-91 over the Bulls on Tuesday night. The Lakers trailed early in the fourth quarter before a decisive 17-2 run led by Brown and fellow reserve Steve Blake, scoring 10 straight points to pull away. Brown scored just three points in the second half, but his aggression clearly set a tone against Chicago, which went more than 5 1/2 minutes between field goals late in its seventh straight loss to the Lakers. “I always want to play well against the place I came from,” said Brown, who is from Maywood, just west of Chicago. “I grew up watching the Bulls. I was a Bulls fan.” Brown found his groove early for the Lakers, hitting four 3-pointers in the first half when he wasn’t barreling toward the rim. Bryant and coach Phil Jackson remain grateful for Brown’s improvements during the summer, particularly in honing his steady jumper. “He’s got so much confidence right now,” Jackson said. “We’re encouraging him to (shoot) when it feels right. Otherwise, he’s got such a great drive, teams have to play back off him because of his speed.” Brown re-signed with the Lakers at less than his probable market value so he could chase a third championship ring, but he listened to other offers.

nba cago considered him to fill the gaping hole at shooting guard in its starting lineup, Brown pulled a face that indicated he’s still waiting for that call. “I don’t remember,” Brown said sarcastically. “I wasn’t surprised. Nothing surprises me about the business of the NBA.” Lamar Odom had 21 points and eight rebounds for Los Angeles, but the two-time defending NBA champions trailed early in the fourth quarter before Derrick Rose finally slowed down. Rose scored 30 points, but had just three in the final period — all on free throws. “They went small, and they made some tough shots,” Rose said. “A lot of their players stepped up their game. Shannon Brown is shooting the ball well this year. He’s got a lot of confidence, and he’s doing great for them. Everybody in the league knows that their bench is like a transition team. They get out in the open and shoot a lot of 3s, and they were hitting them tonight.”

Brook Lopez scored a seasonhigh 32 points and the Nets snapped a three-game losing streak by beating Atlanta in overtime. Devin Harris added 23 of his 27 points in the second half for the Nets, and Anthony Morrow had five of his 13 points in overtime.

Wizards 116, 76ers 114 Nick Young hit an open 3-pointer with 7.6 seconds left in overtime, and Washington capitalized on Jrue Holiday’s unwise foul in the final seconds of regulation to beat Philadelphia. Young finished with 19 points, but his winning shot wouldn’t have been possible if Holiday hadn’t fouled John Wall some 40 feet from the basket with 3.5 seconds left in regulation and the 76ers leading by three. Wall threw up the ball and got a shooting foul out of it, then made all three free throws to tie it at 106.

Mavericks 88, Pistons 84 Dirk Nowitzki had a season-high 42 points with 12 rebounds, carrying Dallas over Detroit. Jason Terry added 16 points for the Mavericks.

Pacers 100, Cavaliers 89 Danny Granger scored 24 points to lead the Pacers past Cleveland. Granger had 10 points in the second quarter as Indiana expanded an eight-point lead into a 62-37 margin at halftime.

Rangers’ Hamilton wins AL MVP award NEW YORK (AP) — Texas outfielder Josh Hamilton was a runaway winner of the American League’s Most Valuable Player award. Hamilton received 22 firstplace votes and 358 points in voting announced Tuesday by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. Hamilton, the No. 1 overall pick by the Tampa Bay Rays in the 1999 draft, nearly had his career derailed after becoming addicted to alcohol and cocaine a few years later. He made eight trips to rehab before getting a second chance in the majors and becoming an all-star. This season, he led the major leagues in batting average (.359) and slugging percentage (.633) and helped the Rangers reach their first World Series. He had 32 homers and 100 RBIs despite missing time with two broken ribs. “It’s awesome, everybody

mlb makes mistakes in their lives and everybody deserves a second chance,” Rangers teammate David Murphy said before voting was announced. “A lot of people don’t take advantage of that second chance. But he took it and he ran with it.” Detroit’s Miguel Cabrera was second with five first-place votes and 262 points after leading the AL with 126 RBIs and a .420 on-base percentage. The Yankees’ Robinson Cano was next with 229 points. Toronto’s Jose Bautista, who led the major leagues with 54 home runs, had the remaining first-place vote and 165 points. “There were other guys around the league who had great years, but seeing Josh, what he was able to do, it’s pretty impressive,” Texas second baseman Michael

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a boy for Travolta, Preston John Travolta and Kelly Preston will have a new guest at their Thanksgiving table. A publicist said the couple welcomed a baby boy Tuesday in Florida. They named their new son Benjamin. The 8-pound, 3-ounce boy was born at an undisclosed Florida hospital. Spokeswoman Samantha Mast said late Tuesday that the John Travolta and Kelly couple and their daughter, Ella Preston Bleu, â&#x20AC;&#x153;are ecstatic and very happy about the newest member of the family.â&#x20AC;? The statement says Preston and baby Benjamin â&#x20AC;&#x153;are healthy and doing beautifully.â&#x20AC;? This is the third child for Travolta and Preston, who were married in 1991. Their eldest child, son Jett, died last year at age 16.

A three-member panel of the Second District Court of Appeal refused to rule that plaintiff Sam Lutfi had such a tarnished image that he could not sue for defamation. Spearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mother, Lynne Spears, had asked the justices to become the first California court to adopt a â&#x20AC;&#x153;libel-proof doctrineâ&#x20AC;? that a person cannot sue for defamation if their reputation is so Lynne bad that it cannot be further damaged by poSpears tentially false statements. Lutfi sued Lynne Spears and her daughter for libel and defamation in February 2009, claiming he had been falsely accused of controlling the singer and grinding pills into her food during a turbulent period.

J-E-L-L-Uh-Oh: Gelatin, pudding cups spill Northern Iowa authorities said theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve cleaned up a slippery mess after a tipped semitrailer spilled Jell-O and pudding cups across a county road.

It took crews three hours to clean up the debris. The sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office said 39-year-old semitrailer driver Eric Young of Charleston, S.C., wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t able to make a turn and went into the ditch where the rig rolled onto its side.

Veterinarians learn how to investigate crimes GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; When federal investigators working the Michael Vick dogfighting case needed someone to dig up and analyze the remains of eight pit bulls buried on the football starâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Virginia property, they summoned Melinda Merck. The nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top forensic veterinarian, Merck was one of the few specialists trained in processing crime scenes involving animals. Her job at the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals involves helping prosecutors build court cases, and she saw there werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t nearly enough vets and other professionals with those skills. The 46-year-old Merck is trying to change that, co-founding a first-of-its-kind veterinary forensic science training program at the University of Florida. She and scientists from the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s renowned human forensics lab are sharing their expertise with animal-cruelty investigators, police and veterinarians who come from around the world. In a nod to the popular TV shows, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already being called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Animal CSI.â&#x20AC;? Demand for forensic veterinarians has been growing as many states have toughened their animal cruelty laws.

are usually no witnesses â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or reluctant witnesses â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and certainly the victims canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t testify, even if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re alive,â&#x20AC;? Merck said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re always evidence-based cases.â&#x20AC;? A partnership between the ASPCA and the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s William R.

Jennifer Grey, who consistently topped the judgesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; leaderboard throughout the season, took the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dancingâ&#x20AC;? title Tuesday, outscoring fellow finalists Kyle Massey and Bristol Jennifer Palin, who was Grey b u oye d fo r weeks by passionate voters and online efforts to support the single mom. Massey finished second. Palin was third. Grey, who overcame painful neck, back and knee injuries to earn three perfect scores in the run-up to Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finale, said her mind went blank in the moments before she was named the winner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was in a surrender moment of whatever happens will be great,â&#x20AC;? the 50-year-old actress said after the show, an ice pack tucked into the back of her fringe-covered costume as she spoke with reporters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The absolute destination for me was the journey. The journey was the gift.â&#x20AC;? Still, Grey was happy to have the mirrorball trophy: She turned her professional partner, Derek Hough, into the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first three-time winner, and gave a nod to her breakthrough film role in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dirty Dancing.â&#x20AC;?

is in the works. On a warm afternoon deep in a forest near Gainesville, teams of six are sifting through cordoned-off â&#x20AC;&#x153;crimes scenes,â&#x20AC;? seeking evidence of buried animal remains. Each group has a scenario â&#x20AC;&#x201D; for instance, one is investigating ritualistic animal sacrifice; others are looking into cases of animals being shot, strangled and stabbed by abusers. The students processed the carefully staged scenes, learning to build a criminal case that will stand up in court. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We all get abuse or suspected abuse cases,â&#x20AC;? says Cheryl Clark of San Diego, a veterinarian for more than three decades who took meticulous notes as her group unearthed shreds of potential evidence at their site. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At this point in my career, I want to get some more precise knowledge to help other professional veterinarians. I want to help animals on a more global scale, so I think the way to do it is prosecute abusers and try to get laws changed and improved.â&#x20AC;? Others sweating in the woods included ASPCA field investigators, American Humane Association disaster-response team members and animal docs like Clark. Coincidentally, the session was cut short for one team of ASPCA investigatorsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; they had to pick up and travel to a southern Pennsylvania farm where 925 pigs were found dead from suspected neglect.

The Vicksburg Post

Single woman has knack for dating e-mail exhibitionists Dear Abby: I am a 38-yearold woman with an outgoing personality. However, when I first meet a man, I move slowly. If I agree to a date, I meet him at a public place. After a few dates, I’ll share my e-mail address so we can communicate more easily. And, Abby, that’s when the trouble starts. Over the past few years, several men have e-mailed me nude photos of themselves after I gave them my contact information. I’m not a prude, but I feel it was disrespectful. I broke up with each of them and deleted their photos from my computer. Please lend me some advice and insight here. Until then, I’m considering remaining

single forever. — Seen It All in San Antonio Dear Seen It All: I’m surprised you didn’t sign yourself “Seen Too Much.” Where are you meeting these creepy individuals? Before the Internet, they used to be called “flashers.” Because this has happened to you more than once in the past few years, it’s time to ask yourself if somehow you may have given the impression that you would be receptive to this kind of contact.

TOMORROW’S HOROSCOPE

BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION If tomorrow is your birthday: A far more active social life could be in the making for you in the coming year, due in most part to a new membership in a club or organization that specializes in something that interests you. It’s going to make your life a lot fuller. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — An important matter that has caused you considerable concern is on track to be concluded to your satisfaction. Now is the time to show faith in those who are involved. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — You are likely to learn that several of your friends followed to the letter an example you recently set. There is no reason why you shouldn’t feel flattered — pat yourself on the back! Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Because financial trends are currently surging in your favor, if you take advantage of them and handle your affairs properly, your returns could be far greater than even you anticipate. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — The influence you presently wield is more than ample for achieving success with your latest plans. However, it will be up to you to utilize your advantage if you want things to come to pass. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Being able to work things out in a manner that benefits you and those with whom you’re involved in highly profitable ways is your forte right now. Take the reins and do your stuff. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Although you will be quite anxious to share some good news that you have just received, be very careful to whom you tell. A competitor who finds out might try to upset the applecart for you. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Two important opportunities might develop simultaneously for you. Instead of trying to choose between the two, try to utilize both of them, even if you have to solicit another person’s help. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Important knowledge that has come your way may be of equal importance to another. If s/he isn’t a competitor, try to strike a deal to share with this person in ways that would benefit you. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Imaginative measures could make a difference in a status-quo situation that is just now starting to show signs of deterioration. Use your creative abilities to get things going again. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Don’t doubt your intuitive perceptions when it comes to important dealings you have with another. Trust your hunch and go with it, especially if something of value is at stake. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — An opportunity is likely to arise that will enable you to acquire something of value that you want, through a contact you have seldom used. Don’t let that stop you; tap into this source. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Be absolutely certain that your judgment is impartial if you are called upon to mediate a sticky situation involving two friends. If you show any favoritism, you’re the one who will lose.

TWEEN 12 & 20

BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: I’m 19 and currently attending a local community college. I am a music education major and plan to be a highschool band teacher or marching band instructor. I have always wanted to be involved with music. Lately, some high schools are cutting back in the area of music because they lack the funds. My mom is totally convinced that once I graduate from college with a music teaching degree, there will not be openings for band teachers. Because she thinks this way, she wants me to change my major to pre-law. My problem is that I have no interest in law. Music is my life and I can’t imagine what my life would be like without it. Can you please give me some advice? — Valerie, Newport Beach, Calif. Valerie: Whenever school districts plead poverty, they discuss the possibility of cutting the athletic teams and music, but these programs are rarely eliminated. Continue to pursue a career as a high-school band instructor, but make sure you are also qualified to teach another subject (math and science are always excellent alternatives), just in case. Remember, there is only a maximum of one band instructor per high school. This limits the hiring to the very best candidates. Somehow, I think that will include you. Dr. Wallace: My parents are divorced and I live with my mother, but I’d really like to live with my father. My mother doesn’t want me to go, but I know I’d be a lot happier living with my father. Is there any law that says I can’t live with him? I am 15 years old. — Nameless, Brunswick, Ga. Nameless: When a husband and wife divorce, the court decides whom the children will live with. In most cases, the mother gets custody, but sometimes it’s the father. Occasionally, there is joint custody, which means the children live with each parent part of the time. It appears that your mother has custody of you. If that’s the case, you can live with your father only if your mother permits the move and your father agrees to it. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service.

words, think about the signals you may be sending after a few dates. Dear Abby: With the holidays coming, I know I’ll be spending time with my boyfriend’s family. Every time I see his father (who is a poor excuse for a dad) he asks when I’m going to give him grandbabies. This has gone on for five years. I am not even married to his son, and I don’t plan on having any children. He makes me feel like I don’t deserve his son if I don’t have children. (My boyfriend already has a son from a previous relationship.) I have tried to answer him nicely. I have even tried to be rude, but he just doesn’t get it! I would like to know how to

respond to him. I certainly do not want it to affect his family’s Christmas, but I feel I should stick up for myself. Please help. — Wants No Babies in New York Dear Wants No Babies: Smile and tell the nervy gentleman he can expect you to give him grandbabies after you start feeling maternal, and when you begin to feel maternal he’ll be the first to know. Do not pick a fight with him, and don’t spend much time with him. Apparently, your boyfriend got his brains from his mother. And now, Dear Readers, I am pleased to offer the traditional Thanksgiving Prayer that was penned by my dear mother, Pauline Phillips. No Thanksgiving would be complete for

Macular degeneration pain rules senior citizen’s life Dear Dr. Gott: My mom is 92 and has macular degeneration, so someone reads her your column every morning. It’s heartbreaking to see the horrendous pain that she is in. It’s extreme from her hip down to the foot on her right leg, and it travels, as well. She has severe arthritis — bone rubbing on bone in her hip because the cartilage is gone, and her sciatic nerve is being pinched. She has spinal stenosis and fibromyalgia as well, as far as we can tell. She’s tried things from your column from time to time. She’s been to pain doctors, had five shots, acupuncture, seen a chiropractor and has had physical therapy. We rub her down with different things. She sparingly takes pain medication, which doesn’t always work, applies ice for 20 minutes once or twice a day and still is in severe pain most of the time. She cannot walk due to it. I keep thinking surely there is something that can help other than surgery. She’s not interested in that option because of her age and her negative reactions to anesthesia and many drugs. Is there a noninvasive procedure that can help, a cream she can use, a specialist she can see or a pill she can take? I find it so hard to believe that in this day and age someone has to be in such severe pain. A once very active woman has been all but stopped. Dear Reader: As with any medical condition and possible options, a physician must look at the whole picture. The thing that stands out is her age. Most people don’t respond as well to surgery at 92 as they would when younger, recuperation is longer than in a younger person and, as you pointed out, she has had negative reactions to anesthesia. I cannot comment on her macular degeneration other than to recommend she see a top-notch ophthalmologist if she hasn’t already done so. Osteoarthritis, sciatica, spinal stenosis and fibromyalgia have one symptom in common — pain. There are options for relief. Initially, I might suggest massage by a therapist. You might check with her physician or your local hospital for recommendations. If you are fortunate enough to have a visiting nurse’s facility in your community, they will likely make house calls. Purchase a whirlpool insert for her bath tub or obtain a chair for the shower that will allow soothing water to help ease her pain. Instead of ice, consider a warming topical ointment such as Castiva or another over-the-counter product that has a castor oil base plus capsaicin to provide relief from the pain. If you can’t find any product at your local independent store, ask them to order it for you. Make an aromatherapy “hotpack” of sorts from an old pillowcase cut down to about 8 inches in height. Fill it with dry white rice and lavender

or chamomile. Stitch up the fourth side to prevent the contents from spilling out. At appropriate times, pop it into your microwave for about 30 seconds to warm. Wrap it around her neck. The scent may lessen her pain by providing soothing relief as she inhales. Speak with her physician about modifying her medication. Sometimes when one drug in a specific class isn’t adequate, another is. Also, be sure you run my rather benign suggestions past him or her before initiating them.
