died Wednesday, but declined to release other details. Waller died at St. Dominic Hospital in Jackson, William where he had Waller Sr. been admitted Tuesday night. His family later said he died of heart
failure after a short illness. Funeral services will be at 2 p.m. Saturday at First Baptist Church in Jackson. The Mississippi Supreme Court said Waller’s body will lie in state from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at the state Capitol in Jackson. Gov. Haley Barbour’s office said the governor ordered flags on state buildings to be flown at half-staff starting
Wednesday. Waller, a Democrat, served from 1972-76 — a time when Mississippi governors were limited to one term. Waller also served as district attorney in Hinds County in the 1960s and twice tried to get a conviction against Byron De La Beckwith for Evers’ assassination. In 1994, prosecutor Bobby DeLaughter was able to
Local legislative wish list warms up By Danny Barrett Jr. email@example.com Higher sales taxes at hotels, restaurants and bars in Vicksburg to fund another attempt at a new sports complex were part of talks Wednesday over what the upcoming legislative session has in store for Vicksburg and Warren County. Mayor Paul Winfield pitched a plan to raise to 2 percent the sales tax on hotels and motels and 1.5 percent on restaurant and bar tabs to finance more sports facilities as one of “the hottest projects” the city has on its plate heading into next year. The current sales tax of 1 percent on both funds tourism promotion. “We know it’s feasible, we’ve done enough studies,” Winfield said of the latest push to build a sports complex to essentially replace Halls Ferry Park. Winfield said the taxes amount to “luxury taxes” that “would pay for themselves” because property taxes aren’t part of the plan and, echoing past attempts to modernize youth sports facilities that would lure more tourist traffic. “It’s going to increase our hotel stays that much more, our restaurants are going to benefit and our kids and our community will benefit,” he said. A local option referendum would be called if such a bill passed. Tax proposals geared to tourism are usually filed in the House Local and Private Legislation Committee. Rate hikes passed last year for the cities of Brandon and Southaven and in Washington County, where a 2 percent hotel/motel tax to fund a sports complex for youth passed with nearly 71 percent of the vote Nov. 8. In 2008, efforts to build a

Among officials meeting Wednesday about the local legislative agenda are, from left, Dr. Elizabeth Swinford, superintendent of the Vicksburg Warren School District; state Rep. Alex Monsour; and Warren County District 1 Supervisor-elect John Arnold.
‘We don’t stage-teach. Many persons who you represent do not have children in the school district. So, they have to listen at the Warren County grapevine, if you will allow me, please. And sometimes, it’s not extremely accurate.’
Zelmarine Murphy VWSD board president
$25 million complex of new baseball fields, indoor soccer fields and lodging areas on 66 acres over the existing Halls Ferry Park were derailed by the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality when the agency said it was too risky to disturb soil atop a former city landfill. A chase for $250,000 to be refunded the city by Jacksonville, Fla.based USA Sports Alliance
continues in circuit court. Earlier this year, the city essentially gave up trying to develop about 200 acres off Fisher Ferry Road for softball fields when it offered the land to the county to build a new jail. State Rep. Alex Monsour, R-Vicksburg, the lone legislator present for Wednesday’s lunch — which Winfield said
he paid for and catered by convention center caterer Palmertree Catering — said after the meeting he supported the idea in principle though the size of the hike isn’t set in stone. State Rep. George Flaggs skipped the meeting due to a scheduling conflict. State Sen. Briggs Hopson III was out of town and asked to meet again next month. In October, the city hired Vicksburg-based Bottin Consulting Group to appraise a site for another complex. Winfield indicated the acreage is privately owned but didn’t specify the size or location. He said a committee of “sports-minded persons” would be put together at some point. Combining Vicksburg’s recreation department with Warren County’s gained traction at least in talking points, mainly from District 3 SuperSee Complex, Page A7.
A longtime Vicksburg Warren School District bus driver who had just dropped off students died on his way home this morning after suffering an apparent heart attack, Warren County Coroner Doug Huskey said. Thomas “Tommy” Gordon Jr., 70, was headed home from his morning bus route at 8:10 a.m. when his bus left the road in the 6400 block of Halls Ferry Road and slid into a ditch, hitting a mailbox along the way, Huskey said. “There was no indication that the wreck caused the death,” Sheriff Martin Pace said. The bus “eased off” the right side of the road at a slow speed and bumped a mailbox, authorities said. Gordon was a 1958 graduate of St. Aloysius High School, who worked for years in his family automotive repair shop on Grove Street. He worked as the school district’s assistant transportation supervisor from 1990 to 2003, then began driving school buses, said Shannon Daniels, secretary for Superintendent Dr. Elizabeth Duran Swinford, who was in meetings this morning. “He was a sweet man,” Daniels said, “just a very sweet man.” No one was available at the schools’ transportation office to say which school Gordon had just left. Gordon is survived by two sons and his wife, Rosemary. Fisher Funeral Home has charge of arrangements, Huskey said.
NRoute ridership increases with new fiscal year By John Surratt firstname.lastname@example.org
Ridership on NRoute’s buses for the first two months of the new fiscal year were up over the same period for fiscal 2011, NRoute Transportation Commission members were told Wednesday. NRoute’s statistics are
based on its fiscal year, which runs from Oct. 1 to Sept. 30. NRoute executive director Evelyn Bumpers said ridership numbers for October and November totaled 6,393, 175 more than the previous October and November. Fares also were up by $598, $7,137, compared with $6,539 for the same period in 2011.
The news came during a discussion of ridership during fiscal 2011, which fell by about 29 percent from fiscal 2010. According to the transportation system’s statistics, 35,242 people rode buses during fiscal 2011, 14,370 less than the 49,612 people who used NRoute during the previous fiscal year. Bumpers added
that fares were also down about $13,615 from 2010. She credited some of the early fiscal 2012 ridership increase to recent changes in NRoute’s bus routes, which the commission approved in late October. The new routes went into effect on Nov. 1. The route changes dropped several stops and added new
ones, including the Warren County Health Department on Monroe Street, four stops on Clay Street, including a stop at the MEA medical clinic, and stops at medical clinics on Mission 66 and South Frontage Road and Warren-Yazoo Mental Health See NRoute, Page A7.

State officials remember Bill Waller JACKSON (AP) — Reaction to the death of former Mississippi Gov. William Waller Sr.: • Former Gov. Ronnie Musgrove, Democrat who served from January 2000 to January 2004: “Gov. Waller’s great family is a testament to the kind of person he was — strong, principled and devoted.” • U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran, R-Miss.: “Our state has lost one of its finest leaders. Bill Waller was a superb lawyer, determined prosecutor, and courageous political leader. We will miss having the benefit of his wise counsel and friendship.” • Rickey Cole, chairman of the Mississippi Democratic Party: “Mississippi is much the poorer today for having lost one of our most distinguished citizens. During his tenure as governor, Bill Waller was a visionary leader with a passion for progress. He was the first governor to begin to recognize the importance of diversity in Mississippi politics and government. He saw clearly that quality public education is essential to the improvement of quality of life for all our people. He knew that Mississippi had to have a reliable, efficient and modern infrastructure in order to compete in the then-emerging global market. He was ahead of his time.” • U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss.: “Bill Waller was a courageous prosecutor, a good

As Governor, he was an innovative and forward-thinking advocate for economic development and higher education. I am fortunate to have known him. Our state has lost a classic.” • Republican Gov.-elect Phil Bryant: “Gov. Waller devoted his career to public service and making Mississippi a better state. His legacy and visionary accomplishments
will continue to benefit Mississippians for years to come.” • Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann, Republican: “Gov. Bill Waller was a true statesman, leader, and friend. He took on the ‘Capitol Street Gang’ and most everything else he believed was not in the best interest of the state of Mississippi and its citizens. All of us are better today because of his presence among us.”
lied against the “Capitol Street” gang that was supporting his opponent. Waller, a Democrat, went on to win the general election over Charles Evers. Former Gov. William Winter, who was the lieutenant governor during Waller’s administration, said he was saddened to hear a longtime contemporary had died. “Bill Waller was forthright. He was frank, candid,” Winter said. “He spoke his opinions in a way that didn’t always please people, but he called it just like he saw it.” Barbour said in a statement that “Mississippians have lost a great leader who launched an era of change that continues to this day.” Barbour presented Waller with the Mississippi Medal of Service in 2009. “He deserved it and more,” Barbour said Wednesday. Waller grew up outside Oxford in a farming family and hitchhiked to Memphis to get his college education. He earned a law degree back home at the University of Mississippi, married his sweetheart, Carroll, and set up law practice in Jackson. He returned to that law
practice once his term as governor ended — interrupting it to run for the U.S. Senate in 1978 and again for governor in 1987. The 1971 Democratic primary for governor had a crowded field, with Lt. Gov. Charlie Sullivan as the prohibitive favorite. Waller ran as an outsider and surprised pundits by capturing the nomination. In 1973, Waller vetoed funding for a segregationist watchdog agency, the Mississippi Sovereignty Commission, putting it out of business. Waller appointed the first black member of the state College Board, Dr. Robert Walker Harrison. During Waller’s administration, Mississippi’s three historically black colleges — Jackson State, Alcorn State and Mississippi Valley State — were elevated to university status. Two smaller, predominantly white schools, Delta State College and Mississippi State College for Women, got the same boost. Waller is survived by his wife of 61 years, Carroll Overton Waller; four sons and 14 grandchildren.

Waller sonable doubt, to a moral certainty, and a lot of jurors interpret that as eyewitness, direct proof.” Charles Evers, the brother of Medgar Evers, said it’s unlikely Beckwith would have been convicted some 30 years later if it weren’t for Waller laying the foundation with the two trials in the 1960s. “He was a true devoted Mississippian who believed in law and order. He believed that if you committed a crime you paid the price. He tried Byron De La Beckwith twice, which was unheard of in those days to prosecute a white man for doing anything to a black man. “He did everything he could. He just couldn’t get a conviction,” Evers said. Bill Waller Jr., chief justice of the Mississippi Supreme Court, said his father’s prosecution of Beckwith inspired him to pursue a legal career. “That prosecution made an indelible impression on me and led me to consider law as a career,” he said. Waller ran an unsuccessful campaign for governor in 1967 but turned things around in 1971, when he ral-

Suspect faced felony charge at time of shooting Preferred candidate By Pamela Hitchens firstname.lastname@example.org
A Vicksburg man accused of shooting a Glen Allan native in the chest at a local gas station Monday afternoon had completed a parole term about five months earlier, but was not sent back to prison when he committed another felony while on parole, Mississippi Department of Corrections records show. Charlie Stamps III, 25, 309 Meadowvale Drive, was released from parole July 1, meaning he had completed his sentence in accordance with MDOC requirements, said
Tara Booth, spokesman with the MDOC. Stamps had been sentenced March 5, 2007, to two concurrent six-year prison terms following his conviction on two counts of possession of cocaine. He was paroled Nov. 13, 2008, records showed. On April 19, Stamps was charged with grand larceny in the theft of brass tire stems valued at $600 to $800. Court records show Stamps posted a $15,000 bond and was released from jail on that charge June 4.
It was not clear why his parole was not revoked with the new charge. Officials with the Mississippi Parole Charlie Board did not Stamps III respond to a phone message Wednesday. Booth and Warren County District Attorney Ricky Smith said only the parole board has the jurisdiction over parolees and is responsible for revocation decisions. Stamps is accused of shooting Jason Johnson, 38, about
3:15 p.m. Monday outside the convenience store at the BP gas station, 2700 Alcorn Drive at Mission 66. He remained in the Warren County Jail this morning. Johnson was taken by ambulance to River Region Medical Center and later flown to University Medical Center in Jackson, where he remained in good condition Wednesday, hospital spokesman Peggy Wagner said. Johnson is a former resident of the Washington County town. Police have declined to release his current address.
Bond set at $90,000 for suspect in computer-sale scam Bond was set at $90,000 Wednesday for a Jackson man accused of offering bogus computer equipment for sale out of his car, police Capt. Bobby Stewart said. Conelle Latroy Davis, 32, 224 Keener St., was arrested about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Iowa Boulevard and U.S. 61 South. Inside Davis’ black, latemodel Dodge Charger, police found seven fake Apple iPads, one fake Apple laptop computer and three broken,
repackaged computers that Davis is believed to have been offering for sale. Davis initially was charged with felony false pretense. Officials added eight counts of trademark violation after consulting with the Mississippi Attorney General’s Office Wednesday morning, Police Capt. Bobby Stewart said. Police received a phone tip Tuesday that an iPad had been offered for sale for $300. No one in Warren County
has come forward to say he purchased any of the fake equipment, but investigators are asking anyone who purchased what appeared to be an iPad notebook or laptop from a seller operating out of his car to contact the police department at 601-636-2511. Actual sales would result in additional charges against Davis, Stewart said. A man in Jackson called Stewart to say he had purchased a fake computer there from Davis,
which could result in charges being filed in Hinds County against him, the captain said this morning. Each charge of trademark violation charge is punishable by up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine, said District Attorney Ricky Smith, and the false pretense charge carries a possible 10-year, $10,000 sentence. Davis remained in the Warren County Jail this morning.
Woman wins suit that claimed botched abortion By Holbrook Mohr The Associated Press JACKSON — A state judge has entered a default judgment in a lawsuit that claimed a woman nearly died from a failed abortion in Mississippi that left her in a coma for a week. Daschica Thomas and her husband filed the lawsuit in 2005 in Hinds County Circuit Court against Dr. Joseph Booker, the National Women’s Health Organization of Jackson and others. The suit claimed Thomas went into the coma because of a blood infection brought on by a botched abortion in 2003. Circuit Judge William Gowan entered the default judgment Tuesday in Thomas’ favor after the defendants didn’t show up for trial. The ruling didn’t mention damages, and
it wasn’t immediately clear when that would be decided. The ruling came less than a month after Mississippi voters rejected a constitutional amendment that would have effectively banned abortions in the state. Thomas’ attorney had no comment Wednesday. Mark Wann, who once represented Booker in the case, said he’s no longer involved in the litigation and wouldn’t comment. Wann said he doesn’t know where to find Booker. A phone number for Booker wasn’t immediately available. The state Department of Health said Mississippi had two licensed abortion clinics in 2003, and the state has only one now. The current clinic is on the same Jackson site as the former clinic, but under different ownership. Shannon Brewer is director
of All Women’s Healthcare of Jackson, which is currently the only abortion clinic in Mississippi. She said the National Women’s Health Organization no longer owns the Mississippi clinic and Booker doesn’t work at the clinic now. Brewer said she doesn’t know where he is. The suit claims Booker wasn’t the doctor originally to perform the abortion, but the other doctor was out. When Booker was performing the abortion, he allegedly stopped abruptly, said he couldn’t finish it and told Thomas to come back so it could be completed by the other doctor. The lawsuit claims a “reasonably prudent” physician would have treated Thomas with antibiotics because of her diabetes, but Booker didn’t. Thomas allegedly came down with a blood infection, went
Ex-Wisconsin governor launching Senate race MADISON, Wis. — Former Wisconsin governor and U.S. Cabinet secretary Tommy Thompson was to formally launch his U.S. Senate bid with a rally today, 13 years since he last appeared on a ballot. Thompson has found himself under criticism from Democrats and Republicans alike over his shifting position Tommy on PresiThompson dent Barack Obama’s health care reform law. And conservatives in his party say his record as governor and as President George W. Bush’s first health and human services secretary was far too moderate. The seat, which has been in Democratic hands since 1957, is opening due to Herb Kohl’s retirement. A victory in Wisconsin would be a major pickup for Republicans looking to regain control of the Senate. One of those challenging Thompson is Jeff Fitzgerald, the conservative speaker of the Wisconsin state Assembly, who helped shepherd through the Legislature Gov. Scott Walker’s proposal attacking union rights. The other is former U.S. Rep. Mark Neumann, who has the support of both the Club for Growth and U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint, a South Carolina Republican who is a favorite among Tea Party conservatives. The only Democrat running is U.S. Rep. Tammy Baldwin, a liberal from Madison.

Cain: Talk with wife will determine future MANCHESTER, N.H. — He’s still plotting an aggressive campaign schedule across several states, but Herman Cain also has begun to outline a possible exit strategy from the race for the Republican presidential nomination. The former Herman business execCain utive, facing a woman’s allegation of a 13-year extramarital affair, says a heavy emotional toll on his family — particularly his Gloria Cain wife, Gloria, whom he has not seen since the charge surfaced — could force him to call it quits. The shift comes as a growing chorus of would-be allies suggests he is no longer a viable presidential contender and Cain himself says fundraising has suffered. Cain, a top-tier candidate just weeks ago, says he’ll decide in the next “few days” whether to abandon his White House bid, but not before he meets with his wife. “Since I’ve been campaigning all week, I haven’t had an opportunity to sit down with her and walk through this with my wife and my
family. I will do that when I get back home on Friday,” Cain told reporters gathered at his New Hampshire campaign headquarters Wednesday night. “I am not going to make a decision until after we talk face to face.”
Romney jumps in with Iowa TV ads COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa — Shifting his Iowa campaign into a more aggressive final phase, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is launching his first TV ads in the state with a spot in which he declares, “I’ve learned someMitt thing about Romney how it is that economies grow.” “The right answer for America is to stop the growth of the federal government and to start the growth of the private sector,” Romney says in the 30-second spot set to run Friday. The former Massachusetts governor’s decision to start spending money on paid advertising in Iowa five weeks before the Jan. 3 caucuses signals a belief that he can fare well in Iowa even though the state tripped up his 2008 bid. The move comes as former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has emerged as the chief GOP challenger to Romney nationally and in Iowa. In the spot, which is also set to run in New Hampshire, Romney emphasizes his private-sector experience.
into a coma and needed blood transfusions. The lawsuit also claims, among other things, that Thomas couldn’t have children after the abortion and that her husband lost his job for missing work while caring for her. Booker performed abortions in Mississippi for years and found himself in controversial situations before. In December 1999, three dozen bags of aborted fetuses and other remains were found buried in a shallow grave behind a business in the Gulf Coast city of Ocean Springs. An investigation revealed that the fetuses came from a storage room Booker had rented in nearby Gulfport, where he had performed abortions. Booker had pleaded guilty in July 1999 to tax evasion and was sentenced to five months in federal prison.
takes MUW’s top job COLUMBUS (AP) — Jim Borsig will take over in January as president of Mississippi University for Women. The state College Board offered him the job Wednesday. Borsig spent several hours meeting with students, faculty and other groups on campus. The job pays $218,000 a year, with about $25,000 of that coming from the MUW Foundation. “Dr. Borsig understands the most critical issues facing higher education today and has the experience and skills necessary to ensure that every student receives an excellent education. He will also ensure that the university is an essential partner for economic development in the region,” said board member Christy Pickering, who headed the MUW presidential search committee. Borsig is the associate commissioner for external relations and public policy at the College Board. He holds degrees from the University of Southern Mississippi and Mississippi State University. The board announced Nov. 17 that Borsig was its preferred candidate. Claudia Limbert was MUW president from April 2002 until May. Allegra Brigham has been interim president since Lim-
bert retired. “Mississippi University for Women has a rich history of strong academic programs in liberal arts and Dr. Jim professional Borsig education,” Borsig said. “I look forward to working with all members of the MUW family to build on this tradition of excellence and provide opportunities for all students. I also look forward to working with the Columbus community to help both the university and the region to grow and thrive.” In meetings Wednesday, Borsig said the university was not going to close or merge. He also said MUW, which has also enrolled men since 1982, won’t abandon its historic mission of educating women. “The women’s mission is important, but it doesn’t have to be our only mission,” Borsig said. In August 2009, the MUW administration proposed changing the school’s name to Reneau University to honor Sallie Eola Reneau, an alumna who more than 150 years ago urged the governor to establish the first state-funded college for women in the United States.

Congress mulling Internet mischief Sometimes you wonder if Congress lives in the real world. With such Internet companies as Apple, Google, Facebook and Microsoft driving what little economic recovery we’re enjoying, Congress could short-circuit the whole Internet — literally. The legislation at issue is HR3261, referred to as SOPA — the Stop Online Piracy Act. It is sponsored by Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas, and was introduced on Oct. 26. Say, wasn’t a Republican majority put back in charge of the House of Representatives a year ago to reduce government’s interference in our lives? SOPA is being supported by many content manufacturers worried about copyright infringements on the Internet. These companies include Macmillan Publishers, Netflix and Viacom; other supporters include such trade groups as the Motion Picture Association of America and the Recording Industry Association of America. If you play around enough on the Internet, you come into contact with pirated movies, books and recordings. According to the bill’s supporters, this means losses of jobs in these industries
because, instead of buying the music legally, people rip it off the Net. The SOPA scheme, in the congressional summary, “would establish a system for taking down websites that the Justice Department determines to be dedicated to copyright infringement. The [Department of Justice] or the copyright owner would be able to commence a legal action against any site they deem to have ‘only limited purpose or use other than infringement,’ and the DOJ would be allowed to demand that search engines, social networking sites and domain-name services block access to the targeted site.” So, let’s say you put up a copyrighted picture of Rep. Smith on your blog and criticize his policies. Under current copyright law, if he asks you to take down the picture, you would have to, but your blog stays up. Under SOPA, the government could just shut your blog down. “We’ve built a vibrant Internet that’s a trusted system,” said Corynne McSherry, director of intellectual property at the Electronic Frontier Foundation. “SOPA would balkanize the Inter-
net.” She pointed out that not just the government, but private information companies could shut down allegedly offending sites. So, you could end up with several Internets, depending on who approved what — basically defeating the benefit of the whole world being interconnected. SOPA also could slam small businesses, McSherry warned, which don’t have the large legal departments of big companies. Even a minor copyright violation means small firms “could be hit with economic penalties that would choke them off.” Worse, Internet service providers, such as Verizon or AT&T, would have to monitor everything people put on the web, or even in e-mails, to make sure no violations occurred. This would be a major violation of privacy. We believe that, however imperfect, existing laws are adequate to protect copyright holders. We’ve noticed, for example, that when copyrighted material is uploaded to YouTube, it often is taken down quickly. Congress should skip this new attack on our liberties and get back to its real job of cutting the budget deficit and the national debt.

MODERATELY CONFUSED by Jeff Stahler
‘Supercommittee’ failure indicative of broader failures on Capitol Hill STARKVILLE — The failure of the so-called congressional “Supercommittee” to forge a deficit reduction deal is indicative of far broader problems on Capitol Hill. The painful automatic budget cuts set to take place in 2013 are but the tip of the fiscal iceberg unless Congress retreats from gridlock and acts. The leadership of the bipartisan special joint committee said in admitting that political gridlock had blinded the Supercommittee from the broader problems facing the country in a statement that: “After months of hard work and intense deliberations, we have come to the conclusion today that it will not be possible to make any bipartisan agreement available to the public before the committee’s deadline.” Both parties blamed the other on Capitol Hill and there was political sniping between the U.S. Senate and U.S. House as well. Lots of politicians issued statements
The failure of the Supercommittee mocks the fiscal realities facing the country. Sid
citing their personal “disappointment” over the failure of the committee to reach agreements. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, said members of his Democratic Party “were prepared to strike a grand bargain that would make painful cuts while asking millionaires to pay their fair share, and we put our willingness on paper,” but that Republicans across the political aisle “never came close to meeting us halfway.” But his Republican counterpart,
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, argued that an agreement “proved impossible not because Republicans were unwilling to compromise, but because Democrats would not accept any proposal that did not expand the size and scope of government or punish job creators.” There was even sniping among the 2012 field of Republican presidential contenders and between them and Democratic President Barack Obama. GOP candidates said that Obama had failed to dis-
play the leadership necessary to forge an agreement, an accusation rejected by the White House. The failure of the Supercommittee mocks the fiscal realities facing the country. Over the next decade, the Obama administration has proposed some $45.8 trillion of spending with some $20 trillion of that to be spent on Social Security (retirement pensions), Medicaid (health care for the poor, the blind, disabled and children), and Medicare (health care for senior citizens). The trouble with that plan is that the government only anticipates revenues of some $37.3 trillion. That leaves a projected deficit over the next decade of $8.5 trillion. Not only is Social Security upside down in terms of benefits paid versus payroll deductions received in 2010, but the Social Security trust fund has been reduced by $2.5 trillion worth of congressional borrowing. What
retirees and baby boomers really have in terms of that “nest egg” they thought they had when FICA was being deducted from their payroll checks is in reality a pile of IOUs in a filing cabinet in Parkersburg, W. Va. The 2.5 trillion owed to Social Security is part of the $14 trillion national debt. And, oh, by the way, Social Security has a total unfunded liability of well over $8 trillion. The truth is that the nation’s debt and deficit situation would have been tenuous even if the Supercommittee’s work had succeeded on every front. Once again, the committee was little more than a sideshow that diverted attention from the more complex problems — like having Congress explain what happened to the Social Security trust fund. • Sid Salter is a syndicated columnist.

smart money Q: My wife and I are planning on setting up a will or living trust but are undecided on what would be better. We own our home and some other real estate. Stocks and mutual funds have transfer-on death beneficiaries on the accounts. Can a legal assistant create wills and living trusts legally under Florida law? — J.W., via e-mail A: You can write your own will, and as long as a legal assistant or some other person doesn’t hold themselves out to be an attorney, they can help BRUCE you draw a will or a trust. You can even buy forms in office-supply stores. That said, I think the only intelligent thing to do is to have your will set up by an attorney. In the event there are no other things to be considered — real estate, personal items, cash, etc. — the will need not be filed. Whether you are better off with some combination of trusts and a will is another matter. If your estate is sub-
stantial, you really should sit down with a qualified planner who can tell you some of the peculiarities of the law and how you can best arrange for the least painful way to transfer those things you have acquired in life. A lot of people seem to fear probating a will. This is not a painful process. Trusts, however, can offer a couple of benefits. One is privacy, as a will is a public document. Second, if the trust has been set up properly with a professional, it’s possible that expenses that might otherwise be charged to probate the will would exceed the costs of setting up the trust. You should make sure that (in most cases) the trusts are fully revocable, which means you can cancel them as long as you are alive and competent, change beneficiaries or eliminate them altogether if you so choose. If you set up a trust and that person predeceases you, there is a question as to whether his or her beneficiaries would benefit from the trust or it would simply cease to exist and go back into your general estate. Obviously, this can get rather complicated. •

JACKSON (AP) — Jackson, Miss.-based Trustmark Corp. said it is acquiring Bay Bank & Trust Co. of Panama City, Fla., for $22 million in cash and stock. The definitive merger agreement is expected to be com-
pleted during the first quarter of 2012 and is subject to approval by Bay Bank’s shareholders and regulatory authorities. Under the terms of the agreement, Trustmark will pay $10 million in cash and $12 mil-

Stocks slip a day after biggest rally in 2 years NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks edged lower in morning trading today, a day after the market had its best day in two and a half years. Bank stocks and materials makers fell the most. Another rise in applications for weekly unemployment benefits set a negative tone for the markets. The Labor Department said initial applications rose to 402,000 last week. The increase means that layoffs are rising slightly. The government’s monthly labor report comes out Friday. Economists forecast that the unemployment rate will remain at 9 percent. Traders got little encouragement from a report from

Indian drugmaker OK’d to launch generic Lipitor TRENTON, N.J. — India’s largest maker of generic drugs won approval late Wednesday to sell a generic version of cholesterol blockbuster Lipitor. The world’s top-selling drug ever lost U.S. patent protection earlier in the day. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said it granted Ranbaxy Laboratories Ltd. approval to sell a generic verson of Pfizer Inc.’s Lipitor, called atorvastatin calcium. The last-minute decision ended widespread speculation over the outcome of a delay caused by long-standing manufacturing issues at some Ranbaxy factories.
Bank chief hints at more euro support BRUSSELS — European Central Bank chief Mario Draghi hinted the bank is prepared to play a bigger, yet limited role in the resolution of Europe’s debt crisis — but only after the 17 countries that use the euro tether their economies more tightly. Speculation is mounting that EU leaders will align their spending policies more closely to bring government debt levels under control in the future. This must happen, Draghi told the European Parliament today, before the ECB or other institutions could take more aggressive steps to help prevent the continent’s current debt overload from ripping apart the

Machinists, Boeing reach tentative deal SEATTLE — As Boeing executive Jim Albaugh spoke to an aerospace conference in New York, recent strikes by the company’s workers in Washington state weren’t far from his mind. “We’ve had strikes three out of the last four times that we’ve gone to the table with the union,” he noted Wednesday morning. “To me it was a lose-lose for both of us.” But he gave no indication of the blockbuster deal that would be announced by the company’s Machinists union just two hours later: that in exchange for keeping work on Boeing’s modernized 737 in the Puget Sound region, the union had agreed to drop a federal complaint over the company’s decision to open a new $750 million, nonunion plant in South Carolina.

Billy Graham hospitalized with fever, congestion ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) — The Rev. Billy Graham is in a North Carolina hospital, awaiting word from doctors on whether he has pneumonia. Graham, who is 93, was admitted to Mission Hospitals in Asheville late Wednesday morning suffering from congestion, a cough and a slight fever. Spokesman A. Larry Ross
Rev. Billy Graham
said Graham was in good spirits Wednesday night after a full afternoon of medical tests. Ross said Graham’s daughter, Gigi, vis-
ited her father.
Dr. Lucian Rice, who is Graham’s personal physician, said he was in stable condition. As the two watched television in the hospital room, Ross said they found a replay of Graham’s 1973 crusade in St. Louis. For six decades, Graham led a worldwide crusade-based ministry that packed stadiums with believers and allowed him
to counsel every U.S. president since Harry Truman. His most recent book, “Nearing Home,” was published last month. In recent years, age-related conditions such as macular degeneration and hearing loss have kept Graham at his home in Montreat, about 20 miles east of Asheville. He was last hospitalized in May, when he spent five
days at the same hospital for pneumonia. In October 2008, Graham was hospitalized after he tripped and fell over one of his dogs. Earlier that same year, he had elective surgery on a shunt that controls excess fluid on his brain. The shunt was first installed in 2000 and drains fluid through a small tube, relieving excess pressure.
Development Authority. On other topics, Monsour said his support for fewer school districts in Mississippi will continue. The state has 152 districts, with some counties having as many as six. “It’s ridiculous,” he said. “And I get up and ask the chairman of Education why we can’t do something about that. And they say, ‘It’s a local deal.’” Privatizing a new jail came up in passing, as has been the case in 13 months of intermittent meetings between local government and school officials, usually over breakfast. Trends in private jails tend to favor “x
number” of beds guaranteed, Monsour said. Eight offers of land for a jail have gone untouched since supervisors accepted them in May. State Sen. Philip Gunn, R-Clinton, is a top choice of state House Republicans to be the next speaker. The GOP will control the chamber for the first time since Reconstruction. Gunn’s district includes parts of northeast Warren County. The takeover clinched in the November elections represented “big changes” in the way the majority will view state agencies’ funding next year, Monsour said. Vicksburg Warren School
District superintendent Dr. Elizabeth Duran Swinford told officials she planned to release, then rehire a Vicksburg Intermediate School math teacher as a tutor after the teacher failed to pass a writing portion of the Praxis test required for certification. That and the replacement of an uncertified teacher at Warren Central Junior High caused the district to slip a category in the state’s 2011 Children First annual rating of school systems. School trustees Zelmarine Murphy, Joe Loviza and Jim Stirgus Jr. attended the session. Murphy, the board chairman, said what the
system needs most is positive vibes. “I encourage you and your constituents to visit our schools,” Murphy said. “We don’t stage-teach. Many persons who you represent do not have children in the school district. So, they have to listen at the Warren County grapevine, if you will allow me, please. And sometimes, it’s not extremely accurate. There’s a lot of positive things going on. I encourage you to encourage your friends to stop speaking negative about the Vicksburg-Warren schools. I am a public school militant!”

GOP: Cuts must cover payroll tax relief WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican congressional leaders stressed a willingness Wednesday to extend a Social Security payroll tax cut due to expire Dec. 31, setting up a year-end clash with Democrats over how to pay for a provision at the heart of President Barack Obama’s jobs program. “We just think we shouldn’t be punishing job creators to pay for it,” said Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell, scorning a Democratic proposal to raise taxes on milliondollar income earners. Instead, Senate Republicans called for a gradual reduction in the size of the federal bureaucracy, as well as steps to make sure that million-dollar earners don’t benefit from unemployment benefits or food stamps. They also recommended raising Medicare premiums for individuals with incomes over $750,000 a year. House Speaker John Boehner said flatly that any tax cut extension will be offset by cuts elsewhere in the budget to avoid raising federal deficits. Republican officials noted that Obama had said the same thing was true of the plan he unveiled in September. The events in Congress, coupled with Obama’s fresh appeal for renewal of the payroll tax cut while speaking Wednesday in Scranton, Pa., indicated leaders in both parties want to seek a compromise less than a week after Congress’ highprofile supercommittee failed to find common ground on a related economic issue, a plan to reduce deficits. Yet nearly a full year before the 2012 elections, it also appeared that both parties are eager to compete for the political high ground before any compromise can be struck on the payroll tax or an extension of unemployment benefits that Republicans also said they might approve.

world AIDS day
South African film aims to educate JOHANNESBURG (AP) — A film opening on World AIDS Day today that mixes live action and animation is taking viewers inside a soccer player’s body, showing how he becomes infected with HIV and spreads the virus. The cast and characters are Kenyan, Nigerian and South African — which producers hope will help the movie travel across the continent hardest hit by the disease. The pull of soccer, which has a unique power to unite Africans, also should help. Harriet Gavshon, a producer who worked on “Inside Story: The Science of HIV/AIDS,” said the “toxic combination” of death and sex still makes it difficult for people to discuss AIDS. “You have to constantly find new ways of trying to talk about it,” she said. The 90-minute film, aimed at viewers from their midteens and up, is a co-production of Johannesburg’s Curious Pictures and an international development program sponsored by the U.S. reality and educational TV company Discovery. Today’s premiere at a Johannesburg multiplex will be followed by a U.S. debut in January in Washington and one in Nigeria later next year. Aric Noboa, president of Dis-

A nurse, left, speaks with a patient at the Hillcrest Aids Center in Durban, South Africa. covery Channel Global Education Partnership, said it hopes to broadcast the film and distribute DVDS, along with booklets to help guide community leaders in conducting post-film discussions. Films, TV and radio shows, newspaper ads and billboards can get conversations started. But experts at loveLife, a group that has pioneered a range of programs to teach young South Africans about
AIDS, say changing behavior requires keeping the dialogue going long enough for lifesaving messages to sink in. It appears, though, that messages are getting across in South Africa, at least to young people targeted by projects like “Inside Story.” Results released this week from a South African health ministry survey found that infections among 15-year-olds to 24-year-olds had dropped from 23.1 percent in
2001 to 21.8 percent in 2010. But across all age groups, infections are creeping up, and this country of 50 million has more people — at least 5.5 million — living with HIV than in any other country. The focus on prevention might be becoming even more important. The cost of treatment is increasing as more people test and go on drugs, and efforts to find a cure or vaccine are advancing slowly.
Clinton calls on Myanmar to continue with reforms YANGON, Myanmar (AP) — U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton today challenged the leaders of Myanmar to continue and expand upon recent reforms, calling for the release of all political prisoners, an end to violent campaigns against ethnic minorities and a breaking of military ties with North Korea. “We believe that any political prisoner anywhere should be released,” Clinton told reporters d u r i n g t h e Hillary Rodham Clinton first visit to this long-isolated nation by the top U.S. diplomat in more than 50 years. “One political prisoner is one too many in our view.” Clinton made her comments ahead of a meeting with the most famous political prisoner of all, opposition leader and Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, who was released last year after two decades of onand-off imprisonment and has said she will run in upcoming elections. Clinton and Suu Kyi had a private dinner today and were to meet Friday.

Sidelines Lady Bulldogs’coach earns 600th victory
Mississippi State women’s basketball coach Sharon Fanning-Otis joined some elite company Wednesday night. Fanning-Otis recorded career victory No. 600 as the Lady Bulldogs won their third straight with a 63-47 victory over South Alabama at Humphrey Coliseum. “Any milestone is always special,” FanningOtis said. “It is a reflection of the young ladies, the staff and the fans. I haven’t scored a point in my coaching career. It is a credit to the players for the way they have represented this program. “Still, it is only one win and I want it to carry over to the next one.” Fanning-Otis becomes one of 14 active Division I coaches with 600 or more victories. A former head coach at both Tennessee-Chattanooga and Kentucky, FanningOtis is now 600-445 in 36 seasons.

A pair of former St. Aloysius and Hinds Community College baseball standouts signed with four-year colleges. Ryno Martin-Nez signed with Louisiana Tech and Pierson Waring signed with Mississippi State during the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) early signing period on Tuesday. Martin-Nez, a sophomore
infielder, hit .280 in his debut season with three doubles, one home run and 10 RBIs. The everyday third baseman also scored 18 runs and stole four bases in five attempts.
Waring, a sophomore infielder and former Vicksburg Post Player of the Year was named to the MACJC All-State second team in 2011. He hit .363 with five doubles, one home run and a team-best four triples as a freshman. The pair won two state titles with St. Al in 2008 and 2009. Five other Hinds players signed with four-year schools. The Division I signees are Alex Gunn of Clinton, who will head to
Memphis, and Carey Taylor of Brandon, who will play at Louisiana-Monroe. Tyler Akins of Madison, Daniel Gilbert of Ridgeland and Andrew Gunn of Clinton are headed to NAIA power Belhaven. “This is another great day for our baseball program,” Hinds baseball coach Sam Temple said in a team release. “All of them are quality young men and have great character, along with being successful baseball players.”
Alcorn State puts scare into Aggies By The Associated Press COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Alcorn State arrived at Reed Arena on Wednesday night with a solid defensive plan — force No. 25 Texas A&M to beat the Braves’ zone. “We didn’t want to give them a good look at the basket,” Alcorn State coach Luther Riley said following the Aggies’ 56-44 victory. “We wanted to take some of their points away by contesting the kick-out pass. It was just a bad shooting night for them, and we were in zone for that reason.” The Aggies (5-1) finished 0-for-17 from 3-point range, and had to rely on big men Ray Turner, who had 16 points, and David Loubeau, who had 14, to save the day on the inside. “We knew the Aggies wanted to play inside-out with Loubeau and Turner there in the paint,” Riley said. “Unfortunately for us following their (outside) misses, there were situations where we gave up some second and third shots.” Freshman KeDorian Sullivan led the Braves (1-6) with 11 points and eight rebounds. Riley said that after Sullivan and his fellow underclassmen settled down in a Big 12 environment, the Braves gave A&M a game, outscoring the Aggies 27-26 in the second half. “Our effort was OK, but we gave up too many offensive rebounds,” Riley said. A&M outrebounded Alcorn State 19-10 on the
against the zone, it’s going to be difficult to look good offensively.” Alcorn led 9-8 with 11:33 remaining in the first half before a layup by Jamal Branch gave the Aggies the lead for good. A&M shot only 40.3 percent (25 of 62), while Alcorn was even worse at 32.7 percent (18 of 55). Texas A&M, which has won three straight, is still without its top player, guard Khris Middleton, who is expected back in less than two weeks after recovering from knee surgery. Alcorn State, which lost its sixth consecutive game, outscored A&M 30-16 off the bench.

Alcorn State guard Xavian Rimmer is fouled by Texas A&M guard Naji Hibbert Wednesday. Texas A&M won 56-44. offensive end and 49-32 overall. Still, the Aggies were upset with their overall showing — and especially their shooting. “Everyone is disappointed because of this game,” Turner said. “Even though we got the win, it wasn’t good enough.” Naji Hibbert had eight rebounds for the Aggies, who won their 64th consecutive nonconference home
game. “The zone has given us problems this year,” Loubeau said of A&M’s terrible night of shooting. Alcorn State was only 3-of11 from beyond the arc. “We’re obviously disappointed we didn’t make a shot from the perimeter against their zone,” Aggies coach Billy Kennedy said. “Bottom line is if you go 0-for-17 from the 3-point line
Mardracus Wade scored a career-high 20 points to lead Arkansas to a victory over Mississippi Valley State. The Razorbacks (5-1) led the whole way, making 59.3 percent of their field goal attempts, including 11-of-23 from beyond the arc. Wade made four 3-pointers. The sophomore scored 15 points by intermission, giving Arkansas a 47-30 halftime lead. Terrence Joyner and Cor-J Cox each scored 15 points to lead Mississippi Valley State (1-6). “I knew Arkansas liked to play a fast pace and we like to play a fast pace, too,” Mississippi Valley State coach Sean Woods said. “I thought they did a good job of keeping the pedal down and making us play hard and fast, and use a lot of energy.”
Cougars hire Leach By The Associated Press SPOKANE, Wash. — Mike Leach is bringing his highpowered passing offense — and swashbuckling style — to long-dormant Washington State. The school said Wednesday that the pirate-loving former Texas Tech coach agreed in principle to a five-year conMike tract. He will Leach be introduced today at a news conference in Pullman. Leach will be paid a base annual salary of $2 million, with supplemental income of $250,000 a year, plus performance incentives, athletic director Bill Moos said. The 50-year-old Leach was 84-43 at Texas Tech, leading the Red Raiders to 10 bowl appearances in 10 seasons. He was fired in 2009 amid allegations he mistreated a player with a concussion. He replaces Paul Wulff, who was fired Tuesday after four losing seasons. “I have always admired the tradition of Washington State,” Leach said in a statement. “It’s a university on the move that is experiencing growth. I’m excited about what they are doing with the facilities and it’s a team that has battled through some hard times and shows great promise in the future. “I’m proud to be a part of this team.” Moos said he has been talking with Leach since midNovember, and offered him the job Monday. “A lot of schools wanted him. He wanted us,” Moos said. This is the first time that Washington State has been able to hire a man with head coaching experience at a BCS-level school, he said. Washington State could not have afforded Leach without revenue from the new Pac-12 television contract that will eventually pay each school up to $20 million per year, Moos said. Leach was at the top of Moos’ list of candidates, in part because Moos wants a high-powered offense.
Nutt’s reign will affect next coach at Ole Miss Boy Scouts are taught to leave each campsite “better than you found it.” Houston Nutt didn’t have that approach at Ole Miss. Just look at the depth chart. But the aftershocks of his misrule will hurt worse than the $5 million still owed the former coach. It’s likely that his era will keep the Rebels from getting the coach they need to turn things around. Just look at the names being thrown out there. None of them is a name with any cachet. Hugh Freeze, the Arkansas State coach, has made somewhat of a silk purse out of a sow’s ear in Jonesboro, but the SEC isn’t the Sun Belt. Mark Hudspeth, who has turned Louisiana-Lafayette into something more than a laughing stock, has done the same, but is tainted with Mississippi State ties and has bowed out of the race. Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby
POST SPORTS EDITOR
Smart is paid handsomely to play Robin to Nick Saban’s Batman and Smart could be in line for even more lucrative jobs in the future. His salary ($750,000 per season after a 2010 raise) is more than Hudspeth and Freeze make combined, and they’re head coaches. Gus Malzhan, the Auburn offensive coordinator, gets $1.3 million a year and the Rebels would likely have to double that just to get him to listen. Other candidates, like Southern Miss coach Larry Fedora and Houston coach
Kevin Sumlin, are likely to be the subject of a bidding war with plenty of higher-profile suitors like Penn State, North Carolina, Arizona State and Kansas in the mix. The Rebels missed the boat on two big candidates, as Rich Rodriguez (Arizona) and Mike Leach (Washington State) have resurfaced in the Pac 12. But Ole Miss, paying Nutt not to coach, probably couldn’t have afforded their asking prices. In Bruce Feldman’s insightful 2007 book, “Meat Market,” he details the ugly details of college recruiting and unknowingly recorded the building of a team that former Ole Miss coach Ed Orgeron would never get to coach. Enter Nutt, who was hired in November 2007 and vultured Orgeron’s recruiting riches into two Cotton Bowl wins. But as the saying goes,
recruiting is like shaving, when you take a day off, people notice. Nutt didn’t recruit particularly well when the Rebels had momentum from two 9-4 seasons. In the book, when talking about assistant coaches and their hauls, Orgeron said over and over again, “You can always tell a trapper by his furs.” The problem was, he could get the furs, but he didn’t know how to make a coat of them when they got to Ole Miss. Well, Nutt wasn’t much a trapper and wasn’t much of a coatmaker either. The quarterback situation, since Jevan Snead left, is still a mess. For all of the hype, Randall Mackey is not a SECcaliber quarterback. Neither is Zack Stoudt or Barry Brunetti. Hyped prospect Raymond Cotton and former starter Nathan Stanley transferred. The Jeremiah Masoli farce
last season was a black eye for Ole Miss and he wasn’t a SEC quarterback either. The running back situation is even worse. In three years, Nutt has recruited just one bonafide SEC-caliber tailback, Enrique Davis, who made an impact. The rest of the depth chart is littered with tiny-mite speedsters who can’t run between the tackles. When Nutt took over Ole Miss, he arrived with a cupboard stocked with talent. It was a great job, loaded with talent and great facilities. Now that he’s gone, the cupboard is down to dust, a few cobwebs and a few gems. Fortunately, those great facilities are still here. Hope that’s enough. •

College football Jackson State’s Comegy receives 2-year extension JACKSON — Jackson State coach Rick Comegy was given a two-year contract extension after leading the Tigers to a 9-2 record this season. The 59-year-old Comegy just finished his sixth season at Jackson State, where he has a 41-26 record and won the 2007 Southwestern Athletic Conference championship. His new contract runs through the 2013 season, and will pay $191,580 per year, which is a three percent increase over his previous contract.
NFL Suh appeal hearing to be held today NEW YORK — Ndamukong Suh will get his appeals hearing right away. This afternoon, Suh will present his appeal of his two-game suspension for stomping Packers guard Evan Dietrich-Smith to Art Shell. The league handed out the suspension Tuesday, but Suh immediately appealed. Shell is a joint appointee of the NFL and the players’ association for such cases. Suh stomped on Dietrich-Smith during Detroit’s Thanksgiving Day loss to the Packers and was ejected. Should he lose the appeal, he will miss Sunday’s game at New Orleans and the Lions’ Dec. 11 home game against Minnesota. Usually, a hearing is held within 10 days of the filing of an appeal. But the league has expedited Suh’s high-profile case to give the Lions and the second-year player an answer before the Saints game. If Suh, the 2010 Defensive Rookie of the Year and an All-Pro, loses the appeal, he can return to the Lions on Dec. 12 before a road game against Oakland. He is barred from practice and the team’s facility while suspended.

McCready takes son from her father’s home Pregnant singer says she won’t be able to make court date ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Country singer Mindy McCready said Wednesday she will probably not be able to bring her 5-year-old son back to Florida to fulfill a judge’s order by this afternoon— because she is nearly 7 months pregnant with twins. By not returning as ordered, she risks arrest. Speaking exclusively to The Associated Press, McCready said that she and her mother have had a long custody battle in Florida over Zander. Her mother was awarded guardianship in 2007.
THIS WEEK’S LINEUP
The battle became more public this week, when the Florida Department of Children and Families said a missing Mindy person report McCready was filed with police after McCready took Zander from her father’s home. McCready was able to visit with the boy there under a court order and the 36-year-old singer said she had spent much of the past
month with her son at the home. Her mother and father are divorced. McCready alleges that her son suffered abuse while living at her mother’s home and that is one of the reasons why she left with the boy last week. “I’m a mom first,” said McCready from Nashville, Tenn. “No matter what happens, I’m going to protect my kid. If I have to go to jail, so be it.” When reached at her Lee County home Wednesday night, McCready’s mother, Gayle Inge, said the abuse
allegations are “absolutely not true.” During the interview with the AP, a tearful McCready recounted a messy and confusing tale of court custody battles and family fights. McCready is suing her mother and a tabloid newspaper for libel in a Palm Beach County court. On Tuesday, DCF discovered that McCready and the boy were not at her father’s home and a judge ruled she must return him voluntarily by 5 p.m. today or risk an arrest warrant.

McGraw can record with another label Country music superstar Tim McGraw won a court ruling Wednesday allowing him to keep recording while a lawsuit against him by Curb Records makes its way through the courts. Chancellor Russell Perkins ruled Wednesday after a fourhour hearing that McGraw can sign with another record label Tim McGraw and Faith Hill and record new music. Curb Records sought to prevent McGraw from recording or signing with another label until he fulfilled what Curb believed was his obligation for a fifth album. McGraw is accused of breach of contract, with a trial scheduled for July. The performer known for his black cowboy hat was in a suit and tie in court Wednesday and his wife, singer Faith Hill, watched from the public seating. McGraw did not testify and after the ruling, shook his attorneys’ hands and embraced his wife, saying he was “just very happy.”
Rapper gets 8 years for prison drug plot A Baton Rouge rapper known as “Lil Boosie” was sentenced Tuesday to eight years in prison following his guilty plea to drug charges. The rapper, whose real name is Torrence Hatch, pleaded guilty to conspiring to smuggle codeine, marijuana and ecstasy into two state prisons, the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola and Dixon Correctional Institute in Jackson, Torrence La. Hatch Dana Cummings, an East Baton Rouge Parish prosecutor, said Hatch was serving a prison term for a separate conviction for marijuana possession when he smuggled the drugs with help from a prison guard. Cummings said the guard, Joshua Wilson, also is charged in the case and awaits a trial. State District Judge Mike Erwin sentenced Hatch to the new prison term. Jason Williams, one of Hatch’s attorneys, said his client tried to smuggle the drugs into prison for his personal use. Williams said Hatch has asked for drug treatment while he’s in prison. “There are a lot of musicians who suffer from (drug) abuse issues. He is one of them,” Williams said. “This is the first step toward dealing with that addiction problem.” Hatch also faces a first-degree murder charge in the October 2009 death of Terry Boyd. The trial is scheduled to start April 30. Prosecutors say Hatch hired Michael Louding to kill Terry Boyd, who was shot through a window of his home.

Flying squirrel invades emergency room Firefighters were needed stat after a flying squirrel went nuts in a New Jersey hospital’s emergency room. The squirrel kept launching itself from an 8-foot-high wallmounted lamp into a glass wall after becoming trapped in a trauma room at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in Rahway Tuesday night. Fire Department spokesman Capt. Ted Padavano said it would climb up on a light and would jump off and glide. A pair of firefighters threw a blanket over the squirrel and released it into a wooded area outside the hospital. Padavano believes there might be a nest in the building because it’s the second time in two weeks that a flying squirrel got in the ER.

Kanye gets 7 nominations; Adele, Mars get 6 By The Associated Press It was Adele’s year, and when the Grammy Awards are revealed in February, it very well might be her night. But on Wednesday night, the British songstress shared in the Grammy nominations glory. While she was nominated for six trophies, including album of the year for “21” and record and song of the year for her bitter groove “Rolling in the Deep,” Bruno Mars and the Foo Fighters also received six, and it was Kanye West who was the night’s top leader, with seven nominations. West was nominated for song of the year for his allstar anthem “All of the Lights,” which featured everyone from Rihanna to Elton John. But even though the album from which it came, “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy,” heralded an epic album by critics when it was released last year, it was not featured in the best album category (so far, no obligatory West rant has surfaced in response). Bon Iver, the folky indie rock act that was a key part of “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” and received a popularity boost from its association with Kanye, was one of the night’s big winners, receiving four nominations, including for best artist, and song and record of the year for “Holo-
cene.” And last year’s critical darlings, Mumford & Sons, were once again nominated for song and record of the year for “The Cave.” Other multiple nominees were Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, Radiohead, and dubstep artist Skrillex, who landed a bid for best new artist among his surprising five nominations. Among the evening’s biggest eye-openers were the artists not mentioned in certain categories. Taylor Swift, who won best album in 2010 for “Fearless” and was considered to be a key favorite for her multiplatinum “Speak Now,” only got her three nominations in the country fields, and Tony Bennett, who had a feel-good story as his “Duets II” album made him the oldest act to debut an album at No. 1 at age 85, was not nominated for album of the year, as some critics had predicted. West’s joint album with Jay-Z, “Watch the Throne,” was also ignored for best
album. Mars, who like Adele was nominated in all the top three categories — record, album and song of the Bruno year — was Mars estatic about his night. He was nominated for song and record of the year for “Grenade,” album for “DooWops & Hooligans,” and best pop solo performance, among other bids. “It feels incredible. Me and these guys, we locked ourselves in the studio not too far from here and worked on this album, especially ‘Grenade.’ That’s the song we worked the hardest on. That’s like our trophy right there. Of all the songs we’ve been fortunate enough to be a part of this year, we were most proud of that one,” Mars said after the nominations, some of which were announced in Los Angeles at the Nokia Theatre as part of the Recording Academy’s hour long concert nominations special. Mars, who was part of the CBS special, along with Rihanna, Lady Gaga, The Band Perry and others, also got key nominations last year. But he said of awards: “I’m trying to get used to it. It’s hard for me, because Adele is incredible.
Kanye West is incredible. All these people are just incredible and they all offer something different, so the fact that this album got recognized and is being categorized alongside these acts, that’s the craziest part, because I’m a fan of all of this music.” The academy seemed to be fans of a wide variety of music as well. The top categories honored rap, pop, indie music, folk and dance. Adele’s “21” is the year’s top-selling album with more than 4.5 million albums sold, and the singer-songwriter’s mournful post-breakup album produced smash hits like the torch ballad “Someone Like You.”

Children often learn from parents’ bad example Dear Abby: I want you to know how much I agree with your answer to “Paying for My Popcorn in Oregon” (Sept. 15), who complained about her niece sneaking food into the theater. I used to teach a parenting class to parents who had kids in trouble with the law. I started out by asking, “How many of you teach your children to lie, cheat or steal?” Of course nobody admitted he did. I then had about 20 items I’d list, the movie food issue being one, driving over the speed limit, and so on. At least one of the 20 applied to everybody. Then I’d say: “You taught your kids that it was OK to lie, cheat and steal — it’s only getting caught that’s bad. That’s why you are in my class today.” This is what that niece is teaching her children. — Paul in Denver Dear Paul: Thank you for agreeing. However, I’m sorry to say that many readers thought the issue was more about the cost and selection of snacks than that of cheating the theater owners.

four to see a movie and get a drink and popcorn or candy costs about $80. This is highway robbery. The cost of a drink is about 5 or 10 cents to the theater, and they charge a whopping $5. The same goes for popcorn. Let’s be serious. How much does popcorn cost? A tub of popcorn at a theater is $7.50. My children want the whole theater experience, which includes a snack. How can a family afford to go to the movies at these prices? Theater owners should be able to make a reasonable profit on the snacks, but this is ridiculous. Sorry, I will continue to bring my snacks in. — Kim in California Dear Abby: While I agree that it is the theater operators’ prerogative to set policy and make money, I have done what the niece is doing, but for different reasons.

BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION If tomorrow is your birthday: In the year ahead, you could become involved in a new enterprise that might be huge, but is nevertheless quite promising. Even if early signals are a bit discouraging, if you stay with it, you will eventually succeed. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Before starting another project, be sure to first finish what you’ve already begun. Focus and follow-through become difficult when you have too many things going on at the same time. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Be extremely selective regarding whose counsel you follow. Going with the wrong advice could cause minor complications to turn into very serious ones. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Warning signs are all over your chart, telling you that going to the wrong adviser could cause complications that would turn into grave impediments. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Subdue any kind of inclinations that invite distraction. Chances are they would cause you to waver in your pursuit of an objective, when you should be giving your full attention. Aries (March 21-April 19) — By pretending you know a lot about something when in reality you know little, you could get yourself in an embarrassing position when asked to explain it to others. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — If a friend of yours attempts to pry some confidential information out of you, hold firm in keeping mum. If this particular info morsel were to be circulated, you’d be blamed. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — All being difficult will get you is a loss of support from your friends. Don’t be your own worst enemy; build bridges, don’t burn them. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Take it slowly when engaged in something important that could produce many future rewards, and make sure you do everything right. Patience will get you where you want to go much quicker than haste. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — When caught up in something that is not directly under your control, it behooves you to be on guard. You could easily be blamed for another’s mistake and be forced to rectify it. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Don’t get caught up in airing a disagreement with your spouse in front of others. Having an audience would only make matters worse as each of you tries to look like the blameless party. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Conditions are such where a gadget, tool, material or a method could easily cause you to run amok if you’re not totally familiar with its intricacies. Get quality instructions first. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Impulsiveness on your part could cause you to purchase an expensive piece of merchandise for which you currently have little use but hope one day to have.
TWEEN 12 & 20
BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: I’m 19 and my boyfriend is 20. We have been dating for two years but we are on shaky ground now. When we first started dating, I treated him like dirt. I went out on him behind his back many times. I always told him and he forgave me. Now I am deeply in love with the guy, and I would never think of going out on him again. I would like to marry him. Well, last week, I found out that he has been going out on me. When I asked him about it, he admitted it. Now I’m really confused and hurt. Please advise me what to do and please don’t tell me “turnabout is fair play.” I don’t want to hear that. — Nameless, Moline, Ill. Nameless: The time has come to take a break — from each other. Tell your boyfriend that it would be best if he continues seeing other girls until he gets it out of his system. If and when this happens, tell him that you will be happy to see him again, that is if you are not seeing someone else. Marriage at this time is out of the question. Dr. Wallace: My boyfriend and I recently broke up, and I was devastated. Last week, I was reading your column when I read the letter from Susan of Santa Rosa, Calif., who was heartbroken and didn’t know what to do since her boyfriend left her. After reading your advice to her, I also took it, and it totally changed my outlook on life. I no longer get depressed or mope around the house all day. I am now enjoying life, and I’m able to hold a conversation with my “ex” without wanting to die. I want to thank you for being such a tremendous help to me! — Amy, Lake Charles, La. Amy: It’s a wonderful feeling to receive e-mails such as yours. Thanks for taking the time to let me know. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service.

dren and I are allergic to corn products as well as artificial colors and flavorings — ingredients in every product commonly sold at movie concession stands. Recently my family has made a different choice. We either eat before we go, or we wait for the DVD and stay home. I would like companies to know that when they exclude outside food, they also exclude my family. — Allergic in New York Dear Abby: By teaching children that it’s OK to cheat on this particular issue, they will generalize that it’s OK to cheat ANYTIME, if they don’t agree with whoever sets the rules. Thus it might become OK to cheat in school because “he makes the tests too hard,” or to engage in underage drinking because “the law is stupid, and besides, everyone does it.” Just wait until they decide it’s OK to sneak out of the house when Mom says “no” because “her reasons are lame!” That mother had better be careful when she justifies, because what parents teach their kids will affect them sooner or later. — Susie in Olympia,
Wash. Dear Abby: “Paying” could search for activities to help them see another way of looking at the world. Instead of going to a movie, I suggest that the aunt arrange to take the children (with or without her niece) to an outing such as craft time at a library, a visit to a museum, or gather in the kitchen to share a family recipe and donate the food to a local shelter. They could spend an afternoon helping at the local food pantry, which would provide an opportunity for her to discuss values and priorities. In this way she could interact with her niece and the children and build lasting memories. They could even go to the grocery store and make a game out of seeing how much food they could buy for the amount they would have spent at the movie. — An Awesome Aunt in Hebron, Ohio

Scratch test reveals triggers for allergies Dear Doctor K: Over the past year I’ve suddenly developed allergies. The problem is, I don’t know what I’m allergic to. My doctor wants to do a scratch test. What can I expect? Dear Reader: Scratch tests are often done in cases like yours, when allergy symptoms have no clear trigger. The tests usually are done by allergy specialists. A scratch test checks for a skin reaction to substances that often cause allergies. These might include foods, molds, dust, plants or animal proteins. Your doctor will decide what allergies to test for, possibly up to a few dozen at one visit. You should be asked not to take antihistamines, which can interfere with the test results, for three days before the test. If the doctor does not tell you that, call his or her office and check. Here’s what happens in the test: First, your doctor will drip drops of fluid in rows across the skin of your forearm. (In children the test is done on the upper back.) Each drop contains one substance, such as cat dander, that you might be allergic to. Your doctor will note where each drop of fluid is placed. Then the doctor will make small, light scratches with a needle in the skin under each drop. This helps the substance you might be allergic to, to get under the surface of the skin. That’s where the immune system can “see” it, and produce an allergic reaction against it. That’s it. It’s all over, except for the waiting. And this can be difficult. You have to stay still for about 20 minutes. Some of the scratches are going to start itching, but you won’t be allowed to scratch. At the end of the waiting time, your doctor will examine each needle scratch for redness or swelling. Your doctor can tell you right away which substances caused a reaction. A serious allergic reaction during a scratch test is extremely unlikely. It’s never happened to any patient of mine that I have sent to an allergy doctor. Serious reactions include a drop in blood pressure, shortness of breath and other symptoms. To be safe, tell your doctor if you have ever had a life-threatening allergic reaction or a serious reaction to a previous allergy test. The doctor might not want to test for that particular allergy, or might want to have special treatments all ready to go if you do start to have a serious reaction. We have a lot more information on allergies in our Special Health Report called “What to Do About Allergies.” You can find out more about it at my website. Knowing what you are allergic

to can help in at least two ways. First, you know what to avoid. Second, for some allergic substances, there are special shots — desensitization treatments — that can greatly reduce your allergic symptoms.
