Downtown’s Horizon casino being sold to S. Carolina group By Danny Barrett Jr. Vicksburg’s only downtown casino, Horizon, is being sold by its Las Vegas parent company to one in South Carolina, Horizon owner Tropicana Entertainment has announced. The 105 jobs at the 36,000square-foot casino on Mulberry Street at the Yazoo Diversion Canal are safe for now, interim general manager Stacy Walker said. “The only thing I can say right now is yes, they are

selling to Delta, and we still continue to operate,” he said. The sale of Horizon, Vicksburg’s second casino, to Delta Investments & Development LLC for $3.25 million in cash plus certain liabilities associated with the casino was announced by Tropicana Tuesday. Delta is incorporated in Nevada and is managed by gaming executive J. Michael Caldwell of Gateway Gaming in Piedmont, S.C. The deal is subject to approval by the Mississippi Gaming Commission.

Though 42 jobs were cut immediately before a corporate “re-positioning” began a year ago today, no jobs were cut this week and the casino remains open. Walking areas were recarpeted and table games were removed from the casino last December, in a scaledown Tropicana blamed on the recession. Food offerings at Josh’s also were changed, from fine dining to sandwiches. Horizon opened in NovemSee Horizon, Page A9.

Vicksburg police and firefighters clear debris from Interstate 20 after an 18-wheeler driven by Rolando Love, 40, 780 U.S. 61 North, Apt. 19A, rolled over while exiting onto U.S. 61 North from I-20 East Wednesday afternoon, spilling its load of logs onto the exit ramp and the westbound lanes of I-20. Love was taken to River Region Medical Center, where

spokesman Allen Karel said this morning he had been treated and released. Investigating officer Jonathan Tillman of the Vicksburg Police Department said Love was cited for speeding on the exit ramp. Traffic on I-20 West was backed up for less than an hour, but longer on the exit ramp while the truck was moved. No other injuries were reported.

City, county radios out, back after 2 days By Ben Mackin Vicksburg and Warren County emergency services’ radio system was up and running late Wednesday after being down for two days. “The backup system was able to service the community,” Vicksburg systems manager Bill Ford said, “and nobody was in any undue danger.” The problem, he said, was a broken piece of antenna 350 feet off the ground at the Prime Site tower. For safety reasons, officials declined to specify the site. The backup system, purchased in the late 1990s, is effec-

tive, Ford said, just not as efficient, as the primary system. “The backup is like using a typewriter as opposed to a laptop,” he said. “The typewriter will get the job done, but it would be a lot easier with a laptop.” A concern, though common, he said, is dead spots, or areas where radio signals do not reach. “There are actually areas that the backup system covered that the primary was unable to,” Ford said. City technicians teamed up with Entergy and Westower Communications to temporarily solve the radio malfunction around 5 p.m. Wednesday.

‘The backup is like using a typewriter as opposed to a laptop. The typewriter will get the job done, but it would be a lot easier with a laptop.’

Entergy is lending an antennae until the parts necessary to fix the problem arrive. “We were saved several days of troubleshooting,” Ford said, “When we built the system in 1996,” Ford said, “we wanted to keep it completely isolated, so we put it four miles away from the primary system towers, so that in the event of a tornado or other emergency we would be covered.” Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace said officers are aware of dead spots in radio coverage. “Also, most officers carry cell phones these days, so if they need to get in contact, they are able to do so,” he said.

City woman remains hospitalized after wreck ‘She’s doing better than she looks, but it’s going to be a marathon, not a sprint.’

By Pamela Hitchins A Vi c k s b u r g wo m a n remained in the surgical intensive care unit at University Medical Center in Jackson today following a wreck Saturday near her home on U.S. 61 South. Beth Breedlove, 71, 7095 U.S. 61 South, sustained multiple fractures when the 2001 Ford Ranger Edge in which she was a passenger was hit from behind by another pickup around noon, said her husband, Robert Breedlove. Beth Breedlove was in fair condition this morning, said UMC spokesman Peggy Wagner. The Breedloves had been to lunch in Vicksburg and were headed back to their home when the wreck occurred along an uphill stretch of the

Robert and Beth Breedlove, in a family photo highway just past Immanuel Baptist Church. Both were wearing seat belts and the top of the cab had to be cut to get them out of the truck, Robert Breedlove said. Deputies from the Warren County Sheriff’s Department responded immediately and then turned the investigation

over to the Mississippi Highway Safety Patrol, said Sheriff Martin Pace. MHSP spokesman John Kalahar could not provide information about the wreck this morning. The Breedloves were taken to River Region Medical Center before their transfers to UMC. Robert Breedlove said he suffered a concussion and was discharged from UMC late Monday afternoon. The other vehicle, a 2009 Chevrolet 2500 pickup was driven by Jody Kelly, age unavailable, 965 Louisiana 680, Winnsboro. He was not injured, but his passenger,

7-year-old Natalie Kelly of the same address, was treated and released, said spokesman Allen Karel. Kelly said today that he was not injured and he had no other passengers. Beth Breedlove’s injuries include a broken hip, right arm and left leg, a broken jaw and nose and a neck fracture, said her son-in-law, Tony Monk. She underwent surgery Monday and faces additional surgeries and procedures, he said. “She’s doing better than she looks,” Monk said, “but it’s going to be a marathon, not a sprint.”

Louisiana governor’s plan for layoffs rejected BATON ROUGE (AP) — The state Civil Service Commission refused Wednesday to approve part of a Jindal administration employee layoff plan because of how decisions would have been made on which employees would lose jobs. Commission members said layoff decisions need more transparency for the employees affected and so the public can know they are being done for the right reasons. The issue is how performance ratings are used in the employee layoff process, they said. The concern developed from a layoff plan affecting a handful of employees. It has implications for the 60,000-plus

rank-and-file state employees covered by Civil Service. Under curr e n t C iv i l Service rules, state agenGov. Bobby cies must lay Jindal off employees who have “poor” or “needs improvement” job performance ratings before any other consideration. But the administration wants to go further and lay off people who met job expectations, the next category. The plan would give preference to the top two levels, those who exceeded job expectations and those rated outstanding.

A freshman at Vicksburg High was in the Warren County Juvenile Detention Center this morning, charged with possession of a weapon on school property, police Lt. Bobby Stewart said. The 14-year-old was arrested at the school around 1:30 p.m. Wednesday after other students told a teacher from staff that the teen reports had a handgun in his backpack, Stewart said. The teen told police he was having trouble with other students and felt threatened. The teen was being held without bond pending an initial hearing. This is the third incident involving a weapon on VHS property in two months. On Oct. 29, a 16-year-old was arrested at Memorial Stadium, where crosstown rivals VHS and Warren Central were playing football, and charged with possession of a handgun. On Nov. 30, an 18-year-old student was arrested for carrying a pocketknife in the school off Drummond and Lee streets.

Later Wednesday, Commissioner of Administration Paul Rainwater said it may not be the last time Civil Service addresses the issue. Rainwater said the administration will “seriously consider” proposing a change to Civil Service rules that would expand the use of job performance ratings in deciding who gets laid off, using procedures similar to those proposed on who gets how much of a pay raise. The issue came up as the commission considered proposed layoff plans in the Division of Administration’s technology-related offices. The plans eliminate 21 positions 13 of them filled and requiring employee layoffs.

The commission rejected layoff plans affecting four employees who met job expectations but would lose jobs based on their job rating. The administration will now have to refile plans and explain why the specific employee is targeted. “Performance is important. That’s why we came up with the whole process,” commissioner David Duplantier said. “But ’meets the requirements’ is a good employee.” Employees are rated in different jobs, by different bosses and at different times, Duplantier said. And performance expectations vary for different jobs, he said. It’s hard to compare them, he said.

3 pounds of pot found; city man arrested A Vicksburg man was arrested around 6 p.m. Wednesday after police found more than 3 pounds of pot in his car, police Lt. Bobby Stewart said. Derrick Shorter, 29, was arrested after jumping from a vehicle being followed by police and running into his home at 1100 Grammar St. He was charged with possession with intent to sell. The bust came after complaints of drug activity in the area, Stewart said. The police officer had seen Shorter make a drug deal, Stewart said. Using a search warrant, police used dogs to search Shorter’s property and found a stash valued at $4,800 in a car parked in the driveway, Stewart said. Shorter posted a $30,000 bond to be released from Warren County Jail just after 10 p.m.

Computer, games missing on Berryman A burglary was reported at 9:30 p.m. Wednesday in the 200 block of Berryman Road. Reported missing from the home was a Hewlett Packard laptop valued at $700, a PlayStation 3 game system valued at $299, a Wii game system valued at $199, an iPod Touch valued at $150, and 15 PlayStation games valued at $30 apiece.

Ambassador Shankar


NEW DELHI (AP) — India’s foreign minister said today it was unacceptable that the country’s ambassador to the United States was patted down by a security agent at a Mississippi airport, and said he would complain to Washington. The ambassador, Meera Shankar, was returning from giving a speech at Mississippi State University last week when she was pulled out of line at the airport and given a pat-down by a female Transportation Security Administration agent. Shankar, who was wearing a sari, was told she was singled out for additional screening

because of her dress, according to reports. Foreign Minister S.M. Krishna said this was the second time the ambassador had been singled out for a pat-down in the past three months. “Let me be very frank that this is unacceptable to India,� he said. “We are going to take it up with the government of United States, and I hope that things could be resolved so that such unpleasant incidents do not recur.� A TSA spokesman said diplomats were not exempt from the searches, and that bulky clothing could prompt a pat down.

TSA reactive, not proactive The bottom-line justification for the new full-body X-ray scans and intimate pat-downs in airport security, from both passengers and government officials, is that they are worth the inconvenience and intrusion because they make it safer to fly. However, there is scant evidence that this is true. Passengers may feel safer, but that doesn’t mean the additional security measures are effective at identifying and stopping the next terrorist attack. That’s because, like most post-9/11 security policies, they are reacting to prior threats. Instead of being one step ahead of the bad guys, they are always one step behind. It’s like repeatedly fighting the last war, with the Transportation Security Administration erecting another Maginot Line that the terrorists can make an endrun around. While the current screening process might ferret out a shoe or underwear bomber, terrorists already have demonstrated they can quickly move on to devise new ways of attacking a commercial aircraft. The primary weaknesses in America’s airport security are 1) it focuses almost solely on objects as threats, when it should be eyeing people; and 2) it treats everyone

as a potential threat instead of screening for certain individuals. The problem with the former is that there is almost no end to human ingenuity in fashioning a weapon out of an otherwise common, harmless item — and in hiding it. That sets up the TSA as constantly having to tighten restrictions on what passengers can carry on aircraft, and it requires employees to conduct more invasive searches. The logical conclusion of this strategy is to force passengers to strip naked and inspect their body cavities. As former ambassador and counterterrorism expert Thomas E. McNamara recently wrote in the Los Angeles Times, right now the TSA is searching for needles in haystacks. To better find the needles, it needs to reduce the haystack. One way to thin the herd is to pre-screen certain classes of passengers. Frequent fliers, such as businessmen and women, could undergo background checks and be issued biometric ID cards. These “trusted” passengers would be expedited through security checkpoints, thus leaving more manpower available to check fewer passengers, resulting in shorter delays.

30 YEARS AGO: 1980

However, that still doesn’t address the misplaced focus on objects instead of actors. That would require an intelligent screening process, one that relies on the training and judgment of each screener rather than a drone who follows static, bureaucratic procedures. This is not the same as loosely defined “profiling,” which to many people means looking only at a passenger’s race, ethnicity or nationality, i.e., “Go after the Muslims!” Still, this is the direction the security debate should be taking. We’re reminded of how the “Millennium Bomber” plot to attack Los Angeles International Airport on New Year’s Eve 1999 was thwarted. A U.S. customs agent at the Canadian border noticed Ahmed Ressam was acting “hinky” and ordered a thorough search of his car, which was found to contain explosives. The current setup not only is misdirected, it is unsustainable. As a consultant for Israeli airline El-Al observed of U.S. airports shortly after 9/11, “You do not have an airline-security system, you have a passenger-harassment system.”

The blessings of living in America often overlooked One of my students, who seems to be mad at the world all the time, made a comment the other day that disturbed me: “I’m so thankful the holidays are almost here; I’m sick of school.” Asked if that was all he was thankful for at Christmastime, he quipped defiantly, “Yep ... what else should I be thankful for? And by the way, it isn’t called Christmastime; it is Winter Break.” When I mentioned the gift all mankind should be most thankful for — Jesus Christ’s birth — not only at this time of year but all year long, he scowled Scrooge-like, as if to say, “Bah, humbug!” As a teacher, I am dismayed that some young people not only seem to think that something really can be gotten for

nothing and that the world owes them everything, but also have no reverent thoughts about historical events in which victories at the cost of many lives bequeathed to them the opportunity to speak freely, worship freely, and most importantly, to live freely, in the greatest country the world has ever known. For instance, on Dec. 7, 1941, Japanese aircraft attacked Pearl Harbor, destroying or damaging countless warships and air-

planes, and killing or wounding almost 3,700 Americans. It was, as President Roosevelt said, “...a date which will live in infamy — America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of ... Japan.... With confidence in our armed forces, with the un-bounding determination of our people, we will gain the inevitable triumph, so help us God!” Eventually, the triumph was gained, but not without a long

fight and a huge loss of materiel and personnel. For that, all Americans must forever be thankful. But the liberty those brave men and women fought to preserve would not have existed if, 165 years before then, on Dec. 25, 1776, an army of 2,000 exhausted but determined, fearless men, clad in rags and some even barefoot, set out in rain, sleet and snow to make a dangerous river crossing, march about 10 miles, and gain a victory at Trenton, N.J., thereby setting the stage for independence from Great Britain. How can we Americans not be thankful for this spectacular feat of heroism? Thankfully, many Americans, including younger ones, know that when this great country is challenged it rises to the threat and overcomes it. They

are proud of their heritage and demonstrate that pride on special days set aside to honor the men and women who have served in the cause of freedom. I was reminded of this on Veterans Day when I walked into a classroom and all the students stood and applauded. There was no way this old veteran could stop the tears. As radio personality Garrison Keillor once said, “Thank You, God, for this good life and forgive us if we do not love it enough.” In America, we have ample opportunities to earn the good life, and for that we should always preserve an attitude of thankfulness. • Jimmy Reed is an Oxford-based newspaper columnist, author and college teacher.

Father of missing Alabama children charged with murder VANCLEAVE (AP) — High on sleeping pills and fearing he might get lost, John DeBlase carried his 3-year-old son’s lifeless body just 50 feet off a highway into the Mississippi woods, dumped him in the brush and covered the boy with twigs. Three months later, he discarded his dead 5-year-old daughter in rural Alabama, police said, then went on with his life.

John DeBlase

Heather Leavell-Keaton

Chase DeBlase

On Wednesday, authorities found the remains believed to be his son, Chase, and DeBlase

abuse and corpse abuse. “We believe at this point that he did in fact kill his son” and daughter, Mobile Police Officer Chris Levy said. DeBlase and the children’s stepmother were arrested last week, and authorities searched for the children’s remains in Alabama and Mississippi over the weekend. Neither child had been seen for months. An investigation into their

Natalie DeBlase

was charged with two counts of murder. He had been held for child

disappearance didn’t start until late last month after their stepmother, Heather LeavellKeaton, sought a protective order against DeBlase in Kentucky, Levy said. She said in the Nov. 18 filing that DeBlase “may have murdered his children,” and that she feared for her life. The couple just had a child together this summer. “I am afraid that he is going to do something to harm our daughter because of what he

has done to the other children,” she wrote. DeBlase has blamed her for his children’s deaths, and police said they’re both responsible. DeBlase, 27, has been assisting police in the search for the bodies. Remains of his daughter, Natalie, haven’t been found yet, but DeBlase told police he dumped her body in the woods north of Mobile in June.



Public Service chief switches to GOP JACKSON, Miss. — Central District Public Service Commissioner Lynn Posey switched from Democrat to Republican Wednesday, but said the Lynn Posey change will make no difference in how he votes on utility regulations. The move gives Republicans a 2-to-1 majority on the three-member commission that considers rate changes and other rules affecting electricity, telephone service and other utilities in Mississippi. Posey, 55, is seeking re-election next year. “We’re tickled today to welcome him home,” said Gov. Haley Barbour, a former Republican National Committee chairman. Posey is from Union Church and served in the state Senate 20 years, starting in January 1988, in a district stretching through Claiborne, Jefferson, Copiah, Hinds and Lincoln counties. He won an open seat on the Public Service Commission in November 2007.

La. lawmaker Ellington likely to switch to GOP MONROE, La. — State Rep. Noble Ellington of Winnsboro, a prominent Democrat for more than 20 years in the state House and Senate, said he is likely to switch to the GOP. “I’m 95 percent sure,” he said Wednesday. Two state senators — John Alario of Westwego and John Smith of Leesville — recently switched from the Democratic Party. Alario, a former two-time House speaker and a fixture in Democratic state politics for nearly four decades, said he made the change official last week. Ellington said he will probably make his final decision early next month.

Judge: Mayor, city can’t shut down club HATTIESBURG, Miss. — A judge has ruled the city of Hattiesburg cannot suspend the operating license of Remington’s Hunt Club, where three University of Southern Mississippi players were shot in November. Chancery Judge Sebe Dale on Wednesday said his ruling doesn’t prevent the city from seeking to shut down the club. He said it also doesn’t stop the city from adopting a procedure for handling similar issues in the future. Mayor Johnny DuPree had tried to temporarily shut down the club after the shooting. The three players have been released from the hospital, although one is paralyzed.

USM student attack under investigation HATTIESBURG, Miss. — Campus police at the University of Southern Mississippi are investigating a weekend incident that left a student hospitalized. USM Police Chief Bob Hopkins said the department was trying to determine the number of assailants involved.

smoking dangers

One cigarette is one too many, Surgeon General Benjamin says WASHINGTON (AP) — Think the occasional cigarette won’t hurt? Even a bit of social smoking — or inhaling someone else’s secondhand smoke — could be enough to block your arteries and trigger a heart attack, said the newest surgeon general’s report on the killer the nation just can’t kick. Lung cancer is what people usually fear from smoking, and yes, that can take years to strike. But today’s report says there’s no doubt that tobacco smoke begins poisoning immediately — as more than 7,000 chemicals in each puff rapidly spread through the body to cause cellular damage in

About 443,000 Americans die from tobacco-caused illnesses every year. While the smoking rate has dropped dramatically since 1964, when the first surgeon general’s report declared tobacco deadly, progress has stalled in the past decade. About 46 million adults — one in five — still smoke, and tens of millions more are regularly exposed to secondhand smoke. nearly every organ. “That one puff on that cigarette could be the one that causes your heart attack,” said Surgeon General Regina Benjamin. Or the one that triggers someone else’s: “I advise people to try to avoid being around smoking any way that you can,” she said. About 443,000 Americans die from tobacco-caused illnesses

every year. While the smoking rate has dropped dramatically since 1964, when the first surgeon general’s report declared tobacco deadly, progress has stalled in the past decade. About 46 million adults — one in five — still smoke, and tens of millions more are regularly exposed to secondhand smoke. The government had hoped to drop the smoking rate to 12 percent by this year, a goal

not only missed but that’s now been put off to 2020. Today’s report is the 30th issued by the nation’s surgeons general to warn the public about tobacco’s risks. “How many reports more does Congress need to have to say that cigarettes as a class of products ought to be banned?” asked well-known nicotine expert Dr. K. Michael Cummings of the Roswell Park

Cancer Institute, who helped to review the report. “Onethird of the patients who are in our hospital are here today because of cigarettes.” Still, this newest report is unusual because it devotes more than 700 pages to detail the biology of how cigarette smoke accomplishes its dirty deeds — including the latest genetic findings to help explain why some people become more addicted than others, and why some smokers develop tobacco-caused disease faster than others. There is no safe level of exposure to cigarette smoke, whether you deliberately inhale it or are a nonsmoker

who breathes in other people’s fumes, the report concludes. Nor is there evidence yet to tell if efforts to develop socalled safer cigarettes really will pan out. But more recently it’s become clear that some of the harms — especially those involving the heart — kick in right away, said Dr. Terry Pechacek of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That means social smoking, the occasional cigarette at a party, can be enough to trigger a heart attack in someone whose arteries already are silently clogged, he said.

After the spill

BP official: Effort to shut well late HOUSTON (AP) — Workers on the doomed Gulf of Mexico oil rig were distracted by multiple activities going on simultaneously and didn’t try to shut the well until 49 minutes after potentially explosive gas particles began flowing in, a BP vice president told a federal investigative panel Wednesday. Steve Robinson, who led the team that questioned the wellsite leaders as part of BP PLC’s internal probe, said at hearings in Houston that the actions were late. He said that by the time the crew reacted, the hydrocarbons were already in the riser. He said they couldn’t be contained, only diverted. An explosion occurred just minutes later, killing 11 workers and leading to more than 200 million gallons of oil spewing from BP’s well a mile beneath the sea, according to government estimates. The joint U.S. Coast GuardBureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement panel is nearing the final stretch in its quest to assign blame for the April 20 disaster. This is the panel’s sixth series of hearings, and at least one more is expected before the

The associated press

Steve Robinson, BP vice president of wells in Alaska, testifies in Houston. panel issues its report, which is due by March 27. The panel is still awaiting the results of forensic testing on a key piece of evidence — the blowout preventer that failed to stop the spill. Investigators are analyzing it at a NASA facility in New Orleans. BP has previously acknowledged that its engineers and employees of Transocean misinterpreted a pressure test of the well’s integrity before the explosion. It also previously blamed employees on the rig from both companies for failing to respond to other warning signs that the well was in

danger of blowing out. Investigators appear now to be trying to draw a link between the distractions on the rig, the time it took to respond and the consequences. Robinson, vice president of wells for BP’s Alaska business, told the panel he was asked on April 25 to join BP’s investigation team looking into the disaster. He participated in interviews, including the questioning of BP’s three wellsite leaders who were on the Deepwater Horizon at the time of the blast.

Amberjack fishing season extended BATON ROUGE (AP) — Fisheries experts said that — because the Gulf of Mexico oil spill kept anglers from getting offshore this year — they’re unlikely to hit the limit set to let greater amberjack recover

from overfishing. The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries said that means recreational fishing for greater amberjack can continue through the rest of the year. The 2011 season

smart money Q: I sold my house this year. I’m 70 years old and didn’t buy another one. Is there such a thing as forgiveness on your income tax if you did not buy another property? BRUCE I will have to pay a large amount on my income tax. I live on my Social Security and a small pension. My yearly income is around $15,000. — Evelyn, via e-mail



A: You said “I” rather than “we,” so I assume you are unmarried. In that case, the first $250,000 of profit on your home is totally tax-free (a married couple’s would be $500,000). Assuming that you were living in your home for more than three years, you will have a substantial tax deduction. By all means consult an accountant. I don’t think you have anything to concern yourself with unless the house sold for a lot more than the profit. •

WASHINGTON (AP) — American Indians and black farmers will be paid $4.6 billion to address claims of government mistreatment over many decades under landmark legislation President Barack Obama signed Wednesday. The legislation “closes a long and unfortunate chapter in our history,” Obama said. “It’s finally time to make things right.” At a signing ceremony at the White House the president declared that approval of the long-delayed legislation “isn’t simply a matter of making amends, it’s about reaffirming our values on which this nation was founded: the principles of fairness and equality and opportunity.” Obama promised during his campaign to work toward resolving disputes over the government’s past discrimination against minorities. The measure he signed settles a pair of long-standing class-action lawsuits. The measure also settles four long-standing disputes over Native American water rights in Arizona, New Mexico and Montana. Elouise Cobell, a member of the Blackfeet Tribe from Brown-

Spending faces strife in Senate WASHINGTON (AP) — The fate of House legislation to freeze the budgets of most Cabinet departments and fund the war in Afghanistan for another year is now in the hands of the Senate, where it faces uncertain prospects. The House passed the bill Wednesday evening by a 212-206 vote. It would cap the annual operating budgets of federal agencies at the $1.2 trillion approved for the recently finished budget year — a $46 billion cut of more than 3 percent from President Barack Obama’s request. It includes $159 billion to prosecute the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq next year and deals a blow to Obama’s efforts to close the Navy-run prison for terrorist suspects in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The 423-page measure, opposed by Republicans, conservative Democrats and some anti-war lawmakers, wraps a dozen unfinished spending bills into a single measure. Senate Democrats are working on a different approach that would provide slightly more money and would include thousands of pet projects sought by lawmakers. It’s unclear whether that measure can get enough support from GOP old-timers to survive a filibuster by party conservatives. The House bill is free of such “earmarks.”

The associated press

President Barack Obama signs legislation Wednesday that will pay $4.6 billion to American Indians and black farmers. ing, Mont., and the lead plaintiff in the Indian royalties case, called the signing ceremony “breathtaking,” adding that she did not expect it to happen in her lifetime. Cobell filed the suit nearly 15 years ago and led efforts to reach the $3.4 billion settlement a year ago and then push it through the House and Senate. At least 300,000 Native Americans say they were swindled out of royalties overseen by the Interior Department since 1887 for oil, gas, grazing and timber

rights. The plaintiffs will share the settlement. Cobell said she was driving her car in Montana when she learned the Senate had approved the measure last month. “I pulled over and I cried,” she said. Even with Obama’s signature, the settlement must still go through a gauntlet of court hearings, a media campaign to notify beneficiaries, waiting periods for comments and appeals. The first check is not expected to reach tribal plaintiffs until August.

Tax cuts bill probably will pass, Democrats reluctantly predict WASHINGTON (AP) — Slowly, painfully and reluctantly, congressional Democrats are slogging their way toward acceptance of President Barack Obama’s tax cut compromise, which would let rich and poor Americans keep Bush-era tax cuts that were scheduled to expire this month.

After Obama publicly defended the plan for a third day Wednesday, and Vice President Joe Biden met with Democratic lawmakers in the Capitol for a second day, several Democrats predicted the measure will pass, mainly because of extensive Republican support. Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., predicted the tax cut compro-

Immigration measure gains House approval The House passed legislation Wednesday to give hundreds of thousands of foreignborn youngsters brought to the country illegally a shot at legal status, a fleeting victory for an effort that appears doomed in the Senate. The so-called Dream Act, which passed the House 216198, has been viewed by Hispanic activists and immigrant advocates as a downpayment on what they had hoped would be broader action by President Barack Obama and the Democratic-controlled Congress to give the nation’s 10 million to 12 million undocumented immigrants a chance to gain legal status. Critics railed against the measure, calling it a backdoor grant of amnesty that would encourage more foreigners to sneak into the United States in hopes of being legalized eventually. The Senate was expected to vote today on whether to advance similar legislation, but it’s unlikely Democrats can muster the 60 votes needed to advance it past opposition.



Senate OKs extension of Medicare payments The Senate approved a measure Wednesday to avoid a steep cut in Medicare pay for doctors by shifting some money from President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul law. The deal by Senate leaders of both parties was approved by a voice vote and appeared headed for passage by the House, which would send the measure to Obama for his signature. The president had urged lawmakers to move quickly. When Democrats passed the health care law, they used Medicare cuts to pay much of the cost of providing insurance to millions who lack coverage. Now, lawmakers are reversing the money flow to stave off a scheduled 25 percent cut to doctors on Jan. 1, tapping financing for the health care overhaul to keep Medicare from breaking down.

Plan Continued from Page A1. by homeland security and closely with the city’s current plan, which designates Emergency Management Director Anna Booth as the city’s contact with MEMA. “It all depends on the agreements we work out,” South Ward Alderman Sid Beauman said Wednesday. “That was the problem we’ve had in the past.” In 2007, then-Mayor Laurence Leyens created an emergency management department after criticiz-


ing the county and the state for not having adequate response plans following Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The city’s emergency management department is run by Booth and resources are pulled from other departments, including information technology and public works. The drafting process included changes in language to reflect the county as the primary contact to MEMA with coordination from city resources. The plan called for modifications in 15 emergency support functions that include transportation, communication, public works and engi-

neering, firefighting, emergency management, mass care, housing and human services, resource support, public health and medical services, search and rescue, oil and hazardous material, animal agriculture and natural resources, Entergy, public safety and security, long term recovery and external affairs. Modifications include designating Warren County Emergency Management Director Gwen Coleman to serve as the coordinator for all response emergency plans, and the city will appoint liaisons to Coleman. Officials said they likely will be Fire Chief Charles Atkins

as primary and Booth as secondary. Booth, who declined to comment, also will serve in the administrative role in the new plan. “This is a coordinated effort,” said Coleman, who was appointed to the position in 2006. “We’re moving forward to work together, but there will be bumps in the road as time goes on.” MEMA Director Mike Womack said he is “happy” to see city and county work on a joint plan. “What we really hope for is that the city partner with the county and they develop a cooperative partnership,”

he said by phone from the Gulf Coast. “City and county working together is the most effective way of doing things.” The drafted plan will also include mutual-aid agreements between the city and county boards on funding. Currently, the city has allocated $108,498 of the current $31.3 million city budget to its emergency management department. Coleman estimated the county’s emergency spending at about $300,000 annually with partial funding from state and federal grants.

renamed it Horizon, call for the city to be paid $562,939.56 plus 1.5 percent of net revenues over 30 years until full purchase in 2033. Termination fees of $450,000 kick in if the casino ever closes. Details of the pending sale in regulatory filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission do not mention rents due on the Vicksburg property. Specified is an agreement indemnifying Delta against damages it may inherit from Tropicana’s local holding company leading up to a closing on the sale. Payments had reportedly

tapered off in recent years as Tropicana, formerly part of Columbia Sussex, emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy in May 2009. A previous attempt to sell the Vicksburg property for $35 million fell through in 2008 when prospective owners backed out. In January, billionaire Carl Icahn received regulatory approval to take control of nine Tropicana Entertainment LLC casinos in Nevada, Indiana, Louisiana and three in Mississippi — Horizon, Jubilee Casino and Lighthouse Casino, in Greenville. The nine were half of a company asset split approved by

the courts after bankruptcy. In November, CEO Scott Butera resigned and, a week later, was announced as chief executive of the tribal-run Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut. Net revenues for the firm’s South region of holdings — Horizon, Lighthouse, Jubilee and the Belle of Baton Rouge — fell 10.5 percent to $25.5 million during this year’s third quarter compared to last year, according to the company’s most recent quarterly report to the SEC. Decreases in Vicksburg were blamed on “the continuing economic slowdown and

reduced consumer discretionary spending” and low visitation, the report said. DiamondJacks, which opened as the Isle of Capri and was sold in 2006, was Vicksburg’s first casino, opening in August 1993. The Isle re-entered the Vicksburg market in May, purchasing Rainbow, off Warrenton Road. Ameristar has been the area’s largest and market share casino leader since it opened in 1994. Riverwalk Casino opened next door to Rainbow in 2008, becoming the city’s fifth casino.

WikiLeaks’ payment processor filing suit

That’s classified?

LONDON (AP) — WikiLeaks’ payment processor said today it was preparing to sue credit card companies Visa and MasterCard over their refusal to process donations to the secretspilling website. Andreas Fink, the CEO of Iceland’s DataCell ehf, said he would seek damages from the American financial companies over their decision to block WikiLeaks funds. “It’s difficult to believe that Julian such a large Assange company as Visa can make a political decision,” Fink said from Switzerland. In an earlier statement, his company had defended WikiLeaks, saying that “it is simply ridiculous to think WikiLeaks has done anything criminal.” WikiLeaks has been under intense pressure since it began publishing some 250,000 U.S. State Department cables, with attacks on its websites and threats against its founder, Julian Assange, who is now in a British jail fighting extradition to Sweden on sex crime allegations. A host of U.S. Internet and financial companies have severed their links to the controversial website, some citing terms of use violations. Earlier this week, Visa and MasterCard said they would stop processing payments to WikiLeaks.

Some leaked info not so top secret after all WASHINGTON (AP) — Wanna hear a secret? The U.S. and Canada are probably going to remain friends. And the conservative and liberal party leaders in England? They don’t like each other. But keep that under wraps. The U.S. doesn’t want that sort of sensitive information getting out for a decade or so. While the recent leak of government documents onto the website WikiLeaks has revealed government secrets on such topics as Iran, North Korea and Yemen, the disclosure also unmasked another closely guarded fact: Much of what the government says is classified isn’t much of a secret at all. Sometimes, classified documents contained little more than summaries of press reports. Political banter was treated as confidential government intelligence. Information that’s available to anyone with an Internet connection was ordered held under wraps for years. Days after President Barack Obama’s inauguration, the White House received a classified message from the U.S. Embassy in Ottawa. It was a primer for the president’s upcoming trip to Canada and it included this sensitive bit of information, marked

The associated press

National Security Archives director, from right, Thomas Blanton, senior fellow and CIA expert John Prados and NSA deputy director Malcolm Byrne examine documents released by the CIA in Washington in 2007. confidential: “No matter which political party forms the Canadian government during your Administration, Canada will remain one of our staunchest and most like-minded of allies, our largest trading and energy partner, and our most reliable neighbor and friend.” The document could not be made public until 2019, for national security reasons.

Such non-secrets have a cost. The more stuff the government classifies, the more money it takes to keep it all concealed. The government spent at least $9 billion keeping classified information under wraps last year, and that doesn’t include the CIA, Defense Intelligence Agency and others that keep their spending on classified information classified. Most Americans can do little

but take it on faith that those secrets are actually worth keeping. And advocates for open government say that when too much is classified, it makes it harder for the government to cry foul when legitimate secrets are leaked. “The problem is, we’ve got a system that keeps way too much that is secret, and as a result we can’t protect the real secrets nearly as well,” said

Thomas Blanton, the director of the National Security Archives, a private research institute at George Washington University. “And the stuff we really need to know is buried under a mass of trivia.” State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley would not discuss specific cables such as the one discussing Canada’s friendship. But generally, he said, “I haven’t seen any strong evidence there’s an abuse of the classification system in the cables I’ve seen.” The U.S. can classify documents if they “could reasonably be expected to cause identifiable or describable damage to the national security.” In March 2009, U.S. officials in England attended the spring political conference of the Liberal Democrats. The event was widely covered in the British media, but the U.S. Embassy’s summary, a combination of speech excerpts and hallway chatter, was labeled classified. Among the revelations: Liberal Democratic leader Nick Clegg and Conservative David Cameron “don’t get along.” Besides being politically obvious, this tidbit was available at any newsstand in England.

Meyer resigns at Florida

Favre unsure if he’ll play Sunday

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Brett Favre’s sprained throwing shoulder is making it difficult for him to put on a shirt or pull on his socks, so the 41-year-old is going to wait a few days before he decides about playing against the New York Giants on Sunday. Favre said Wednesday he is unsure if he will be able to extend his NFL record for consecutive games started. He has started 297 straight regular season games, a record he cherishes more than any other he has achieved over the past 20 seasons. But if that mark ends on Sunday, Favre insisted he is fine with that. “It really hasn’t crossed my mind this week that I’ve got to get out there to keep the streak going,” Favre said. “I think the most important streak right now is we’ve won two in a row.” The Vikings quarterback hopes a few more days of rest will provide some clarity for him to make a decision by Friday, but interim coach Leslie Frazier said he wouldn’t be surprised if it goes right up until game time.

Weekly results: B2

Meyer resigned Wednesday, stepping down for the second time in less than a year. His first attempt, which lasted just a day, was for health reasons. This time it’s “to focus on family and my other interests away from the sidelines,” he said. Meyer didn’t rule out coaching again, but in the meantime he intends to become a better husband and a better father to his three children, he said. “At the end of the day, I’m very convinced that you’re going to be judged on how you are as a husband and as a father and not on how many bowl games we won,” Meyer said. “I’ve not seen my two girls play high school sports.

They’re both very talented Division I-A volleyball players, so I missed those four years. ... I can’t get that time back.” Meyer will stick around and coach the Gators (7-5) in the Outback Bowl on New Year’s Day against Penn State and coach Joe Paterno, a matchup some thought would be the last for one of the guys in charge. Few figured it would be Meyer’s finale. Meyer initially considered stepping down last December after he was hospitalized with chest pain following Florida’s lopsided loss to Alabama in the SEC title game. Meyer resigned Dec. 26, See Meyer, Page B3.

Warriors rip Flashes By Steve Wilson On a bitterly cold Wednesday night at Balzli Field, St. Aloysius goalkeeper Michael Stuart was the busiest man on the pitch. He made spectacular save after save, but it wasn’t enough as St. Frederick (Monroe, La.) beat the Flashes 4-1 thanks to a hat trick by Caleb Williams. The key was Stuart’s work with a goalkeeper coach, which after one session appeared to be paying off. “His play has changed more than any goalkeeper I’ve ever coached,” St. Al coach Jason Hopkins said. “In the past two games, he’s been very consistent and we’re hoping he’ll continue to play at that level.” In the first half, the Warriors peppered the goalbox with shot after shot, outshooting the Flashes 5-1 in the half. Stuart made a sliding save on the first one. On another, he made his best yet by sliding right and corralling the ball with one arm before it could reach the back of the net. “It definitely helped me,” Stuart said. “He (the goalkeeper coach) told me no matter if I make the right decision or the wrong decision, I need to go for it. He showed me how to make some marks on the field so, with a quick glance, I know where I am and I don’t have to look back at the goal. I

one opportunity stick. On a breakaway, Blake Hudson boomed a pass down See Flashes, Page B3.

By Ernest Bowker Watching Nicole Hayward sprint up and down the soccer field, running past defenders and zipping the ball into the net, it’s easy to forget she’s only seven games into her high school career. It’s hard, though, to imagine what she’ll do over the next six years.

Hayward, a seventh-grader, has scored nine goals in St. Aloysius’ first seven games this season. Her touch, speed and playmaking ability have given the young Lady Flashes a big-time weapon as they’ve gotten off to a surprising 4-3 start heading into Tuesday’s game at archrival Cathedral. “She’s got a lot of tenacity See Hayward, Page B3.

Trick plays, like them or not, are a major part of football Americans claim to love fair play, winning within the rules, etc. But why is it that we love deception, especially in football? Drew Brees took advantage of a nervous Cincinnati defense with a ruse so clever that Chinese general and philosopher Sun Tzu would’ve approved. With the clocking ticking down and the Saints in range for a tying field goal that wouldd force overtime, Brees barked signals at his offensive linemen like he was checking the play to a new one. He made bird-like motions, frantic in their fluttering energy, with his arms. He engaged in a snap count longer than Tolstoy’s “War and Peace.” And one of the Bengals jumped into the neutral zone. Gotcha. Brees threw the win-



ning pass to Marques Colston on the next play for a 34-30 victory. It was another stitch in a fabric of deception that goes way back to the founding of modern football. There have been some great trick plays, known by distinctive monikers that forever live in football lore. The 2006 Fiesta Bowl had not one, but two of the all-time classics as Boise State emptied out the playbook. The Broncos used a hook and

lateral play to tie the game at 35 and used the infamous Statue of Liberty play — where the quarterback fakes a pass and hands off the ball to a runner behind him — on the winning two-point conversion in overtime. Trickeration gave Boise a chance to even the odds against a more talented foe. Trick plays are an equalizer, much like the 3-point shot was for mid-major basketball programs, that give the underdog a fighting chance. They can also shift the momentum like tectonic plates in a crucial game. Les Miles, who is fond of fake field goals and punts, used a fake field goal in 2007 against South Carolina, a blind lateral from holder Matt Flynn to kicker Colt David, to power the Tigers to a 28-16 victory. While most trick plays fall

within the rules, some skirt the gray areas of the rule book and are later regulated out of existence. The infamous “fumblerooski” used so famously by Nebraska in a 31-30 loss to Miami in the 1984 Orange Bowl was one that resulted in a rules change that banned deliberate fumbles. Another play banned by a change in the rules was former Oakland Raider quarterback Kenny Stabler’s “Holy Roller.” Stabler deliberately fumbled in a 1978 game against the San Diego Chargers and the ball rolled forward toward the goal line. It was batted and kicked into the end zone by tight end Dave Casper, who fell on it for the winning touchdown. There are many reasons for the love of trick plays. Maybe it’s because Americans love a longshot. Trick

plays usually have as much chance of success as the 300 Spartans at Thermopylae in resisting the Persian invasion force. They’re the equivalent of betting heavily into someone in poker with a pair of twos, trying to bluff them into thinking that you have a flush. Or maybe it’s the flawless execution required to execute a trick play perfectly. For every trick play that works beautifully and makes it on ESPN’s Sportscenter, there are three that result in a huge loss of yards or a turnover. Whatever the reason, trick plays are an indelible part of football — even if they aren’t exactly fair. •

Duke’s Krzyzewski earns 877th victory By The Associated Press Andre Dawkins scored a career-high 28 points in his first start to help top-ranked Duke beat Bradley 83-48 on Wednesday night, moving coach Mike Krzyzewski into sole possession of third place on the all-time wins list. The sophomore hit eight 3-pointers for the Blue Devils (9-0) in place of star freshman point guard Kyrie Irving, who is out indefinitely with a toe injury on his right foot. Kyle Singler added 17 points as Duke shook off a cold-shooting first half and blew the game open with a flurry of 3s after halftime for its 19th straight win. It was Krzyzewski’s 877th victory, moving him out of a tie with Kentucky’s Adolph Rupp and putting him just two behind North Carolina’s Dean Smith for second place behind Bobby Knight’s 902 wins.

Nebraska 78, Alcorn St. 57 Lance Jeter scored 16 points and Jorge Brian Diaz added 15 as Nebraska rolled to a victory over winless Alcorn State. Brandon Ubel added 14 points on 6-of-7 shooting, Andre Almeida had 11 points and Caleb Walker grabbed 12 rebounds for the Cornhuskers (7-2), who won their fifth straight. Marquiz Baker scored 32 points and was the only player to score in double figures for Alcorn State, which dropped to 0-8. Alcorn State shot just 18.8 percent (6-of-32) in the first half before finishing at 29.7 percent. “We had a horrific first half,” coach Larry Smith said. “We wanted to pack our bags and go after that. In the second half, the kids came out and competed. I can only be happy with that.”

Pitt 70, Delaware St. 42 Reserve Dante Taylor scored a career-high 14 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for his first career double-double for No. 3 Pittsburgh.

Continued from Page B1. then had a change of heart the next day. “Last year was a knee-jerk reaction,” Meyer said. “This year was just completely different.” Some point to Florida’s five losses and say the 46-yearold coach couldn’t handle the mounting pressure. Others believe Meyer didn’t have the desire to rebuild a program that slipped considerably in just a year. Meyer insists it’s all about family. His oldest daughter, Nicole, is a sophomore at Georgia Tech. His other daughter, Gigi, is a high school senior who plans to attend Florida Gulf Coast next fall. His youngest child, Nate, is 12 and playing baseball and football. “I made a commitment to them recently that I’m going to enjoy the rest of the years of their lives, and that’s right now,” Meyer said. Colleagues praised Meyer for having the conviction to walk away, even though most of them seemingly find ways to balance work and family. “The world of college football will miss Urban,” said former USC coach Pete Car-

roll, who left his job for the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks. “He had major personal issues and health issues a year ago, and I’m sure that he did everything he could to fight it off. Now he’s making decisions that are probably exactly what he needs to be doing.” Meyer called Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley on Saturday to tell him he was contemplating retirement. They met Tuesday to finalize the deal. Meyer, who earned nearly $18 million in six seasons at Florida, signed a six-year, $24 million extension in 2009. So he’s walking away from about $20 million guaranteed. But Foley agreed to pay a $1 million retention bonus the coach would have received had he been employed on Jan. 31, 2011. For Foley, that’s a small reward for everything Meyer gave the Gators. “He’s worked his tail off,” Foley said. “You think of what he’s rebuilt. He built one at Bowling Green, he built one at Utah, he built one here.”

Duke guard Andre Dawkins (20) passes as Bradley’s Andrew Warren, left, and Will Egolf defend Wednesday. Duke won 83-48. including seven in a key second-half stretch, for No. 12 Villanova.

San Diego St. 77, Cal 55 Kawhi Leonard had 20 points and D.J. Gay scored all 14 of his points in the second half to give No. 14 San Diego State its best start in its 90-year history.

Villanova 65, Penn 53 Senior guard Corey Stokes scored a career-high 34 points,

Marcus Denmon made a clinching three-point play off

his steal with 5.8 seconds to go for No. 15 Missouri. Denmon scored all but two of his 21 points after halftime for the Tigers (7-1), who won their 51st consecutive home game against non-conference opponents.

Illinois 74, Oakland 63 Demetri McCamey scored 30 points to lead No. 16 Illinois’ comeback in a sloppy game whose first seven-plus minutes were played with an undersized women’s basketball.

Hayward Continued from Page B1. ping in the rebound, giving St. Al a 4-2 halftime lead. The goal, Hayward’s ninth of the season, capped off her second big performance of the young season. She also had four goals in three games at the season-opening Tupelo tournament. Following the win over Philadelphia, she shrugged off her performance. “I’ve just been playing soccer for a while. It’s nothing special,” she said. Channell disagreed. She said Hayward’s scoring binge has helped open up the rest of the Lady Flashes’ offense. They had 24 shots on goal against Philadelphia. In a 1-0 loss to Brookhaven two weeks ago, they outshot the Class 5A Lady Panthers 14-6 and had numerous scoring chances. “She is the one that’s going to have that threat, so I’m

going to surround her with our best players,” Channell said. “Because she’s in the middle, it does allow us to spread the field and work on our angles.” Although it’s still early in the season — St. Al won’t even play a division game until Jan. 4 — the Lady Flashes are carving an identity as a team to reckon with. Nine seniors graduated from the squad that reached the Class 1A-2A-3A semifinals last season and were replaced with a roster that only has two juniors and no seniors. Despite that, the high-powered offense has them confident they’re heading in the right direction and, they hope, back to the playoffs. “As an individual and a team, especially being young, we’re doing a really good job,” Hayward said.

In the second half, a controversial play proved St. Al’s undoing. The referees ruled a ball that deflected off a St. Al defender’s foot and back to Stuart, who picked the ball up, was a handball. By rule, a keeper can not pick up a ball passed back to him. St. Frederick was granted an indirect kick, spotted just inside the goalbox, and Williams sneaked a shot just past the left post for a 3-1 lead.

Nick Lehigh added the other goal for the Warriors (5-4-1).

Flashes Continued from Page B1. the middle of the field for Brayden Banks, who expertly caught up to the ball and took advantage of a one-onone to give St. Al a 1-0 lead in the 16th minute. But the Warriors wasted little time tying the contest, as Williams booted in a rebound past Stuart in the 39th minute. They added another before the half ended, as Wiliams headed in a popup to put St. Frederick ahead 2-1 at the break.

and drive, and is not afraid,” St. Al coach Suzie Channell said. “She pressures you and makes you make mistakes. Then she’s fast enough to take advantage of them.” Hayward’s playmaking ability was on full display Friday night. She scored four goals — three of them in the first half — in a 6-2 win over Philadelphia. One goal came off a rebound, and two others were well-placed shots. Her third goal, however, was all effort and hustle. In the closing moments of the first half, Hayward won a ball along the right sideline, about 40 yards from the goal. She broke free from her defender and had several steps on any pursuers. After dribbling inside the box, Hayward put a shot on goal that was stopped by Philadelphia’s Taytana Fox. Hayward quickly followed up by tap-

Snooki to drop for New Year’s on MTV You know it’s New Year’s Eve when the Snooki drops — or at least you will this year. MTV says it plans to put “Jersey Shore” star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi inside a ball that drops in New York’s Times Square to ring in 2011 as part of its “MTV New Year’s Bash” special. The network says other stars from its hit reality show “Jersey Shore” will lead the crowd in a collective fist pump in hopes of breaking the Guinness world record.

Cousin: Franklin set for hospital release Aretha Franklin’s cousin says the ailing legendary singer is “doing better than doctors expected” and expects to be released from the hospital this weekend. Brenda Corbett said Franklin “has a long life in front of her and will be back in concert, on stage, late spring or early summer.” Franklin announced last week that she had undergone a surgical procedure. Neither she nor her publicist have said what is ailing the 68-year-old Queen of Soul.


Lt. Gov. Bryant shares real-world experience By Emily Wagster Pettus The Associated Press CLINTON — It’s a Monday night and the lieutenant governor of Mississippi is teaching nine college students about American government and politics. Pacing across the front of a small classroom at Mississippi College, where he has taught part time since 2001, Phil Bryant lectures with an easy confidence and without notes. He reviews the qualifications to run for president — a candidate must be a natural-born U.S. citizen, at least 35 years old and a resident of this country at least 14 years. “ Th at ’s why A r n o l d Schwarzenegger cannot be president of the United States, thank goodness. The Governator cannot be president because he is from Austria,” Bryant says, slipping into a brief impersonation of the actor-turnedCalifornia governor. A couple of the students chuckle. Bryant, who turns 56 today, is a Republican about to embark on his fourth year as lieutenant governor. It’s one of the worst kept secrets in Mississippi politics that he’s running for governor in 2011, though he hasn’t said when he’ll launch his campaign. Serving as lieutenant governor is a part-time job with a base pay of $60,000 a year. Bryant teaches at Mississippi College mostly in the summertime and at night in the autumn, when the Legislature is not normally in session. During the current eight-week term, he teaches Monday and Thursday nights. The students in his class, all women, are in their 30s or older. Most are juggling day

Lt. Gov. Phil Bryant speaks to his night class in American government at Mississippi College in Clinton. jobs and family responsibilities while earning their undergraduate degrees by taking night classes at the private, Baptist-affiliated college. On a recent evening, in addition to mentioning Schwarzenegger, Bryant discusses redistricting, polling, public opinion, candidates’ advertising and the influence of the media. “He’s laid-back, easygoing, makes us laugh. He makes politics fun,” says one of his current students, 32-year-old Rachael Rayner of Jackson. Rayner works as a counselor’s assistant for the Mississippi Department of Rehabilitation Services and is a sociology and prelaw major who plans to become a lawyer. Bryant has a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from the University of Southern Mississippi. After he was already married and a father, he earned a master’s degree in political science from Mississippi College.

During the night class in the fluorescent-lit room, Bryant wears blue jeans, a blue and white striped shirt and navy blue blazer, along with his usual black cowboy boots. A pin with tiny U.S. and Mississippi flags twinkles from his jacket lapel. He tosses out a couple of random one-liners. Talking about how Republican Meg Whitman, a former eBay chief executive, spent more than $140 million of her own money on her unsuccessful campaign for California governor, Bryant deadpans: “If I was single, I’d probably propose to her.” He mentions the way candidates use commercials to project positive images of themselves. “If you see that commercial and if they put their wife on there, and children — shamelessly, like I might do — you might decide, ‘Look, he has a wonderful wife and beautiful

children and I like that look,”’ Bryant says. “Now, if we want to change your opinion about another elected official, someone may put on a commercial that says, ‘Well, did you know that this guy once threw away a puppy?’ Or that ‘He doesn’t like kittycats?’ Whatever.” Waving his hands in mock disgust, Bryant adds: “‘Oh, my goodness, I like cats, and if he doesn’t like kittens, I’m not going to vote for him.”’ Again, a couple of chuckles. Bryant has spent most of his adult life in politics. He was a Hinds County deputy sheriff before representing Rankin County in the state House for five years. In 1996, thenGov. Kirk Fordice, a Republican, appointed Bryant as state auditor when Democrat Steve Patterson left the job. Bryant was elected auditor in 1999 and 2003, and lieutenant governor in 2007.

Winfrey: I’m ‘not even kind of a lesbian’ Oprah Winfrey says she’s not a lesbian, not even a little bit. Her longtime personal and professional connection with Gayle King has sparked rumors that they are gay, but Winfrey denies it in an ABC interview set to air at 8 tonight on “A Barbara Walters Special: Oprah, The Next Chapter.” “I’m not even kind of a lesbian,” Winfrey says. Persistent gossip to the contrary annoys her, she said, explaining that, if it were true, “Why would you want to hide it? That is not the way I run my life.” Asked to describe her relationship with King, Winfrey calls her “the mother I never had, the sister everybody would want. She is the friend that everybody deserves.” Winfrey’s eyes moisten and her voice chokes as she adds, “I don’t know a better person.”

Judges announced for Miss America “The View” co-host Joy Behar and actress Marilu Henner are among seven judges who will decide the next Miss America in January. Judges for the beauty pageant in its 90th year also include country singer Mark Wills, “Desperate Housewives” creator Marc Cherry and Miss America 1990 Debbye Turner Bell. “Dancing With the Stars” choreographer Tony Dovolani and shoe designer Taryn Rose are also on the panel. The pageant will be broadcast live Jan. 15 on ABC. It will mark the start of a three-year deal with the network. The pageant hasn’t been shown on network television since 2004, when ABC dropped it after record-low ratings. The judges were revealed during Wednesday’s episode of “The View.” Chris Harrison, host of ABC’s “The Bachelor,” and “Dancing with the Stars” co-host Brooke Burke will host the pageant. This year’s Miss America winner was Caressa Cameron of Fredericksburg, Va. Mississippi’s representative is Sara Beth James, who competed as Miss Metro Jackson in the state pageant.

Cat back home 5 years after Katrina Five years after wandering away in Hurricane Katrina’s aftermath, a gray and white cat named Scrub has been reunited with his Mississippi family. Scrub, 7, was identified by an implanted microchip, said The Humane Society of South Mis- Matthew Noble pets Scrub sissippi. He was brought to the in Gulfport. shelter by a Gulfport woman who’d fed him as a stray the past couple of months. Scrub’s owner, Jennifer Noble, said she was skeptical at first when she received a call from the shelter. But by the end of the first night back, Scrub had snuggled in bed with one of her boys.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — The Doors singer Jim Morrison will get a posthumous pardon for an indecent exposure conviction in Florida after Gov. Charlie Crist got a commitment for enough votes from other members of the state’s Board of Executive Clemency to approve it. Morrison was appealing the conviction when he was found dead in a Paris bathtub in 1971. The meeting today comes a day after the singer would have turned 67. Crist can’t issue a pardon on his own. He and the three-member Cabinet serve as the Clemency Board. Approval is Gov. Charlie required by Crist t h e g ove r nor and at least two other members. The did-he-or-didn’t-he debate over what happened at the Miami concert was revived by Crist’s interest in the case. The surviving band members say a drunken Morrison teased the crowd, but never exposed himself. “It never actually happened. It was mass hypnosis,” said Ray Manzarek, The Doors’ keyboard player. Manzarek and guitarist Robby Krieger said Morrison’s behavior was influenced by an acting troupe that disrobed during plays.

The 1963 arrest mug and record of singer Jim Morrison. “He was just doing a mind trip — as they would say — a mind trip on the audience and they totally fell for it,” Manzarek said. Manzarek said Morrison was far drunker than usual, to the point where they questioned whether he should go on stage. Crist began considering a pardon for Morrison in 2007 at the urging of a fan. He says he has doubts about whether Morrison actually exposed himself during the rowdy concert March 1, 1969. Morrison was convicted of public profanity and indecent exposure and sentenced to six months in jail

and a $500 fine. The case has become murkier with the passage of years. Morrison’s defense attorney said recently that the singer received a fair trial with credible witnesses on both sides, and fans who were at the show have differing recollections. Here’s what most people agree on: The Doors went on stage late, the Dinner Key Auditorium was oversold and wasn’t air conditioned. Morrison was drunk and stopped in the middle of songs with an anti-authority, profanity-riddled rant. A live lamb was brought on stage at one point, and Morri-

son also grabbed a police officer’s hat and threw it in the crowd. The singer took off his shirt and fiddled with his belt, and fans poured onto the stage. “There were 100 photos offered in evidence at the trial, photos of everything — Jim with the lamb, Jim with the hat, on the stage collapsing, riot in the audience. Not one photo of Jim’s magnificent member,” said Manzarek. A pardon won’t change Morrison’s image, but it will right a wrong, Manzarek and Krieger said.

Cops: Ex-con acted alone in publicist’s fatal shooting BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — A Hollywood publicist was gunned down by an ex-con on a bicycle in a robbery gone awry as she drove home from a movie premiere last month, police said they believed Wednesday after reviewing ballistics tests. The major break in the investigation came as tests linked the gun Harold Martin Smith used to commit suicide

with bullets that killed Ronni Chasen. It came a week after Smith killed himself in the lobby of a seedy apartment building as investigators acting on a tip tried to question him. “We believe that Mr. Smith acted alone. We don’t believe it was a professional hit,” said Beverly Hills Police Chief David Snowden.

Son’s gal pal eating up all mother’s goodwill Dear Abby: My son “Dennis” is divorcing for the third time. He has primary custody of his oldest two children and shared custody of the younger two. He is an excellent father. I have stayed with him in his large home to help with the kids. I supplement their groceries with things we enjoy. Dennis has a female friend he confides in. He insists they are platonic, but she has told me she hopes to win him over. This woman has a hard time making ends meet, but always has money for pedicures and out-of-town football games. She spends many days and nights with Dennis, showering there, eating his food and using his laundry facilities. I resent that she is eating or taking home the food I buy for the children. Am I being selfish? My husband and I live on a fixed income and must be careful with our money. Any suggestions? — Wary in Minnesota Dear Wary: I do have one. Because you resent the idea that your son’s lady friend may be helping herself to the goodies you are providing for



your son and grandchildren, and because it is causing you financial strain, STOP DOING IT. Or take with you only what you and the children can consume during your visit. Dear Abby: Thank you for publishing my letter (Oct. 27) about Mindy, the dying woman who was celebrating all occasions and holidays early. I would like to add a poignant postscript to the original story. During Mindy’s battle with cancer, she and her husband, Bill, were friendly with another couple who, sadly, were also battling cancer. In this case, it was the husband who had, at a young age, developed the disease. Near the end of her life, Mindy asked her adult daughter to try and create a relationship between Bill and Helen, the wife who had lost her

husband. A few months after Mindy passed, her daughter suggested to her father that he call Helen just to chat. He did, and after some time their friendship evolved into a serious relationship. They are being married in the next few months. Mindy must have instinctively known that the losses the remaining spouses had suffered would never be understood except by someone else who had experienced such pain. What a selfless person she was! — Rabbi Albert Slomovitz Dear Rabbi Slomovitz: Indeed she was. And I wish Bill and Helen a lifetime of happiness together. Dear Abby: My 27-year-old daughter and two grandsons (ages 5 and 6) moved in with me more than a year ago. “Lori” is a good mom, but it upsets me when I wake up at night and discover that she’s not home. She will leave a note saying she’s with this person or that and will be home by midnight or 1 a.m. It infuriates me when she leaves the boys alone with

me without informing me in advance. We argue constantly about this, but she continues to do it. I am ready to call the police or to file a report with DSS. Lori says I am home anyway, so what’s the harm? Please help me with this. — Home Alone with the Kids While Mom’s Out Partying Dear Home Alone: Your daughter’s behavior is extremely disrespectful to the mother who took her in. Nothing will change until you draw the line and tell her that the home she and her boys are living in is yours — not hers — and you expect her to live by your rules, the first of which is giving you the courtesy of asking whether YOU might like the evening out before she plans one for herself. You are both adults, and you deserve to be consulted. If she won’t comply, she should make other living arrangements.

Medication might be cause of muscle cramps Dear Dr. Gott: I have muscle cramps in my hands, fingers, legs, feet and toes — night and day. I take 25 milligrams of HydroDiuril and two 595-milligram doses of over-thecounter potassium gluconate. I drink several glasses of water a day plus water with meals. Help! Dear Reader: HydroDiuril is simply hydrochlorothiazide, commonly used to treat high blood pressure. It can cause muscle and joint pain and a reduction of potassium, which can cause cramping, but you are on supplements to avoid the common side effects. HCTZ can also cause a reduction in the amount of magnesium in your body. While studies suggest that most people may be deficient already, symptoms are not common.



If your low levels are further reduced by your medication, this can lead to symptoms of deficiency, which include cramping. Try adding a magnesium supplement to determine whether the cramping lessens. Speak to your doctor to determine how much you should take. If this doesn’t help, perhaps a change in medication is in order. Dear Dr. Gott: My 4 1/2-yearold son is developmentally delayed and was diagnosed

as having low muscle tone. With the help of therapy, he sat up at 1 year and walked at 2 1/2. He is also in speech therapy and isn’t completely potty trained. Emotionally and mentally, he is behind his pre-K peers and will be going into special education in kindergarten. He is ADD. My concern now is that he often has “oniony” breath and body odor, even when he hasn’t eaten any onions. Could this be a symptom of something that his doctors missed? Dear Reader: The simple answer is yes, it could be a symptom of an underlying condition; however, I don’t know whether it is likely. Certain medications can cause changes in the smell of body odor, breath, urine and even stool.


BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION If tomorrow is your birthday: A unique opportunity of major proportions is likely to develop for you next year, through a series of strange and wonderful events. However, it will be best to not discuss this with others. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — There is a chance that a big change in your affairs could take place that will make it possible for you to realize an improvement in your financial prospects. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — By focusing your thoughts on optimistic events, you’ll be able to create opportunities or conditions that will be the envy of everybody, especially your competitors. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — A major change for the better could occur in an area that has been producing sparse returns. This is likely to come about through some changes that you didn’t inaugurate or anticipate. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — It could be rather easy for you

to find someone who will operate on your wavelength to join a new endeavor. It’ll be a collective success. Aries (March 21-April 19) — You’re more capable of outstanding achievements than you realize. You have a choice of spending your time on accomplishing many small objectives, or running with the big dogs instead. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Involvements you have with a positive-minded individual, who isn’t afraid to take a chance, could bring you more success than you’ve had in a long time. Hang out with someone of this ilk. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — It isn’t all that often that you can cash in with a family member, but it might be one of those times, especially if it involves a special arrangement with a relative in which you have a vested interest. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — You might be required to make a meaningful decision that will have far-reaching ef-

fects. Do what you think is best as you envision it. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — You won’t be denied the fruits of your assertiveness if you go after something that’s meaningful with all the gusto that you’ve got. Have faith in your abilities to do what you believe to be right. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Friends with whom you come in contact could prove to be fortunate in several ways. Relax and just be yourself, and they will offer a bevy of good things. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Lady Luck might be a bit tardy initially, but she will make up for lost time in a hurry when something meaningful is at stake. Be hopeful regarding the outcome of events. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — It’s important not to lower your hopes and expectations just because of a few minor setbacks, should there be any. Your chart is a winning one, and its very likely that you’ll finish strong.

TWEEN 12 & 20

BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: Whenever I disagree with my mother, she screams at me to shut up and get out of her sight. I don’t think this is very nice, do you? — Becky, Sacramento, Calif. Becky: Teens need to feel loved and appreciated, especially at home. It is unwise for parents to adopt the “shut up” philosophy when dealing with their children. It’s detrimental to the young person’s development of a positive self-image. Communication between teens and parents is essential in building trust. Dr. Wallace: You said that one in five high school students smoke marijuana. I find this hard to believe. Please tell

me where you got this information. I’m 16 and don’t know anyone who is a pot smoker. — Margo, Columbia City, Ind. Margo: I wrote that about 20 percent of high school seniors had smoked marijuana at least once in the past 30 days. My source was the American Medical Association. Marijuana is the most popular illegal drug used by teens, says the AMA. The good news is that the percentage of teens who use pot regularly (at least once a week) is on the decline. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service.

First Birthday –

Chicobea T. Wilson Jr.

celebrates his first birthday today, December 9. Chicobea is the son of Chicobea T. Wilson & Cierra Flowers of Vicksburg, MS. Maternal grandparent is Sharon Flowers of New Jersey. Paternal grandparents are Archie Wilson of Edwards, MS and Barbara White of Vicksburg.

There are several online forums where these odors are discussed. Most parents seem to say the children outgrow it, or that their pediatricians say the malady is caused by early glandular development and is otherwise harmless. Some have determined it is caused by diet. Rarely, some were told it is the result of thyroid malfunctioning. Your son’s breath and body odor are probably not a sign of illness; however, to be on the safe side, take your son to his pediatrician. Perhaps a referral to an endocrinologist will be helpful. In the interim, try to manage the situation as best you can.
