County jury fails to reach verdict in rapist’s trial

Vicksburg resident

is BIGGEST Loser

By Pamela Hitchins phitchins@vicksburgpost.com Jurors in the case of a convicted child rapist accused of molesting a 3-year-old girl last year were unable to reach a unanimous decision in Warren County Circuit Court Tuesday, and the case will be retried in 2011. Thomas Tubbs, 56, 906 National St., will remain out of jail on a Thomas $100,000 bond, and attorneys will Tubbs confer to set a new trial date, presiding Judge Isadore Patrick said. The jury of six men and six women began their deliberations around 5:35 p.m. Tuesday and returned to the courtroom at 7:30, saying there was no hope of coming to a unanimous decision. A note they sent to Patrick, which was placed in See Tubbs, Page A9.

City’s bond rating placed on watchlist David Jackson•The Vicksburg Post

Friends of Patrick House, from left, Gloria Sullivan, Joseph Wicker, Jesslynn Wicker, Jennifer Coulter, Lynenette Smith, Kari Dupree and her son, Kyle, cheer as they watch Patrick win the grand prize Tuesday night.

‘What a ride it’s been,’ House says after skinny victory By Ben Mackin bmackin@vicksburgpost.com A 219-pound Vicksburg resident won the title of the “The Biggest Loser” Tuesday night, taking a $250,000 prize and swinging into a whirlwind tour of talk shows and appearances. “What a ride it’s been!” Patrick House said after the live finale of NBC’s “The Biggest Loser” in Los Angeles Tuesday night. “It still hasn’t sunk in yet.” House, 28, who lives in Vicksburg with his wife, Bradley, and two young sons, won the cash and a one-year contract with the television broadcasting giant after losing 181 pounds since June, including

Online www.biggestloserpatrick. com three months spent at The Biggest Loser Ranch in California. Since September, he has been seen in Vicksburg, visiting with friends and mostly working out at local gyms. “I’m so proud of him. He looks amazing,” Bradley House said this morning on NBC’s “Today Show” as she watched her husband being interviewed by host Al Roker. In the final moments of the two-hour show Tuesday night, House weighed in, showing he had lost 45.3 percent of his

weight, less than a percentage point more than Frado Dinten, 43, of New York, who had lost 44.1 percent. San Francisco resident Ada Wong, 27, lost 99 pounds, or 39.37 percent of her body weight. House said getting this far was almost unimaginable. “When I first got to the ranch,” House said, “Bob (his trainer) told me that I had what it took to win, and that really helped me get through.” Back in Vicksburg on Tuesday night, 13 of House’s friends and co-workers gathered in Dennis and Jennifer Coulter’s den to watch the show. As House stepped on the scale, the group inhaled simultaneously. Then, all at once, the

room exploded with screams of joy as they celebrated Patrick’s success. “It could not have happened to sweeter, more deserving people,” Jennifer Coulter said. House said throughout the training he was fighting to have a better quality of life for himself and his family and also wanted to give Mississippi something to celebrate. “It feels great to be able to win this for Mississippi, a state that comes in last in so many things,” House said. Just an hour after being declared the winner, House was on a flight to New York so he could appear on “The Today See House, Page A9.

David Jackson•The Vicksburg Post

By Danny Barrett Jr. dbarrett@vicksburgpost.com Vicksburg’s credit rating was placed on review Tuesday by an investment firm that cited a lack of current financial and operating information. Moody’s Investors Service, a New York-based credit ratings provider of credit ratings and risk analysis, said the city’s Aa3 rating, the agency’s fourth-highest investment grade, is on a “direction uncertain” watchlist review and affects $32.9 million in outstanding debt. If the information is not supplied within 60 days, the city could face either a lower rating or withdrawal of the rating. For public and private entities, either action can mean a higher cost in borrowing money. Reached this morning, Mayor Paul Winfield said he suspects the warning from Moody’s was prompted by incomplete city audits for 2008 and 2009 — both of which have been predicted to be See City, Page A9.

War’s sesquicentennial to begin with flag change By Pamela Hitchins phitchins@vicksburgpost.com The U.S. flag is coming down in Vicksburg. No, it’s not a new rebellion, but a symbol of what Vicksburg National Military Park interpretive ranger Tim Kavanaugh calls “the most traumatic event to ever befall our nation, that forever changed us as a people and a country, and whose issues continue to affect us to the present day.” Mimicking events of 150 years ago, the Stars and Stripes will be lowered from the flag pole at Vicksburg’s Old Court House Museum the morning of Jan. 8, and Mississippi’s old “Bonnie Blue Flag” of independence raised. The flag exchange, jointly sponsored by the Vicksburg National Military Park and the Old Court House Museum, will mark the beginning of the four-year sesquicentennial observance of the Civil War in Vicksburg. “The sight of our National Colors being taken down is a provocative and disturbing sight to us today,” Kavanaugh, supervisor of the park’s Interpretive Ranger Division, said in a prepared

A $24,539.30 payment to Entergy Tuesday has settled the past due utility balance for the City of Port Gibson, but city street lights turned off last month as a result of the unpaid balance will be kept off, officials said. “We’ve paid the remainder of that balance,” Port Gibson Mayor Fred Reeves said. “We have got to get a handle on things.” Before the payment, Port Gibson had paid $30,000 in November and $10,000 in October toward the city’s balance of $66,000 to $70,000, Port Gibson City Clerk Vanessa Shaifer said. The balance was about six months in arrears, Reeves said. Talks between Port Gibson and Entergy, the city’s electricity supplier, to reduce the bill, which ran about $8,000 per month, resulted in a decision to shut off nearly three-fourths of the city street lights. So far, 123 of 423 lights have been turned off, and Reeves said he is planning to have more turned off. The shut-offs have angered

Other cities members said they would like to visit are Memphis, Shreveport and Tupelo, which Vicksburg Main Street Program Executive Director Kim Hopkins visited this year. In other business, the panel discussed the idea of creating a museum in honor of the late bluesman Willie Dixon, a Vicksburg native who spent most of his entertainment years in the Chicago area. “The Willie Dixon museum is a good idea, but we need to find a place to put it,” said Mark Doyle, panel member and owner of Burger Village on Washington Street. Other suggestions included a craft store, a bakery, restaurants and a shop for locally made products. The group of downtown residents and business owners has met monthly since its creation, but has made little progress in charting a course.

An advisory panel created to help boost downtown Vicksburg is hoping a trip up the Blues Trail will aid in finding a direction for the group. Members of Downtown Partners, a panel created in March by Mayor Paul Winfield, voted Tuesday to visit the downtown areas of Clarksdale and Greenwood, towns similar in size to Vicksburg, to find ways to boost Vicksburg’s downtown area. “We wanted to see other places,” said David Day, panel member and owner of the Klondyke on Washington Street. “Clarksdale has Ground Zero, Morgan Freeman’s restaurant. It’s a phenomenon. It’s attracted a lot of people to that area.” Members have said before that seeing operations of small towns with thriving downtowns will give the panel a sense of direction in fostering more foot traffic along Washington Street. They plan to meet with an economic development agency in each town. The panel hopes to visit

residents, Reeves said. “The elderly are saying they’re afraid,” Reeves said after a work session for the city’s Board of Aldermen Monday. “They said it’s too dark.” Police Chief Calvin Jackson said the city has seen a small increase in the number of burglaries reported in affected areas since the lights were dimmed. “We’ve had six or seven in different areas of this city,” he said, “and that’s more than normal.” Port Gibson, about 30 miles south of Vicksburg, has a population of about 1,800. Reeves, who was voted into office in 2008, said the city is not producing enough revenue to cover its expenses. A

large portion of the city’s revenue comes from taxes paid by Entergy’s Grand Gulf Nuclear Station. “We’re trying to reduce our expenses,” Reeves said. The city this year stopped paying for cell phones for the six aldermen. Entergy’s customer service manager Don Arnold said his company has evaluated Port Gibson’s street light situation to help reduce the utility bill by half. “We did an audit for them of where the street lights were,” he said. “We found that there were three street lights on in one street with only one house.” Arnold said reducing wattage in certain light bulbs also will help with energy usage. The city has been struggling for a couple of years to pay for its operations, Reeves said, but a $250,000 tax anticipation loan from a $700,000 annual payment from Grand Gulf Nuclear Station last month has the city secure in funding for the time. “We usually have problems again in March or April,” he said. In June, the city borrowed $250,000 to help pay for operations.

Removal of train cars begins north of city By Ben Mackin bmackin@vicksburgpost.com

the westbound train pulling 30 freight cars carrying rolls of paper derailed around 2:30 p.m. Sunday. The cargo and bridge were reported on fire about two hours later and continued to burn until about 4 a.m. Monday. The track and trestle, which are maintained by Vicksburg Southern, are part of a short line off a Kansas City Southern track. It is used only for transport between International Paper and KCS’ main line. The investigation into the derailment and fire is being led by Federal Railroad Administration, Mississippi Department of Transportation and Mississippi Emergency Management Agency. International Paper resumed deliveries Tuesday, using 18-wheelers to transport materials, spokesman Amy Sawyer said. “We have done it effectively in the past,� she said, “when we have not been able to use trains due to weather or some other restraint.� She said IP is still trying to

Vicksburg Southern Railroad has begun lifting freight cars from a bayou where a bridge caught fire Sunday after a derailment from a track leading to International Paper’s Vicksburg mill. “We have started the process of re-railing the affected railcars, and expect all the cars to be re-railed by Thursday afternoon,� VSR general manager Alex King said. “At this point, we will start bridge construction Thursday.� This morning, a crane capable of raising the box cars sat near the site as officials continued to fight hot spots from the fire. King said an estimate on how long it will take to rebuild the bridge that crosses Skillikalia Bayou near U.S. 61 North and Mississippi 3 will not be available until the wreckage is cleared.

Lawmakers give citizens relief President Barack Obama and congressional Republicans played Let’s Make a Deal on taxes, and the bargain they struck will spare all taxpayers from a nasty New Year’s Day shock to their household budgets. But it also sets up an unwelcome rematch in two years. The president summed up the need for compromise perfectly in saying that not extending the Bush-era tax cuts would cost the economy 1 million jobs and the typical household $3,000 a year. If that’s true, then not extending the tax cuts for those Americans who pay most of the taxes — the high-income earners Obama and Democrats in Congress wanted to hit with a higher tax bill — would cost a good many jobs the economy can ill afford to lose. The extension of the entire tax cut package should provide some short-term certainty for investors who have been holding back. A permanent extension would have had a much stronger impact on investor confidence.

Included in the deal is the alternative minimum tax fix that Congress has been delaying all year. Like the case with the tax cuts, a permanent fix of the AMT would prevent this drama year after year and lift the worry of punitive taxes from 22 million mostly middle-class families. Again quoting the president, there is something in this deal for everyone not to like. Liberals have been hellbent on killing the tax cuts for high earners, even though those rate reductions actually generated more tax revenue because they encouraged more investment. What’s too often ignored is that the Bush tax cuts kept the national economy growing through two wars, a terrorist attack and an unprecedented national disaster. We are less than enthusiastic about the failure to keep the death tax at zero. The deal allows it to rise to 35 percent and exempts the first $5 million of an estate. That’s better than the 55

percent rate that was scheduled to kick in Jan. 1, but it is still an unwarranted confiscation of the assets of those who work and save for their families. It’s also pointless to lower the employee share of payroll taxes for one year to 4.2 percent from 6.4 percent, particularly because Social Security is already underfunded. Such short-term tax rebates do little to stimulate the economy and will result in what will look very much like a tax hike next January. Finally, though we support an extension of unemployment benefits in an economy that is not producing private-sector jobs, it would have been more responsible to fund it with real dollars instead of adding it to the deficit. On the whole, however, it is a very good deal considering that Republicans don’t yet control a single branch of government. GOP lawmakers used their limited leverage very effectively on behalf of taxpayers and the struggling economy.

MODERATELY CONFUSED by Bill Stahler

Defeating the Dream Act would be a truly stupid move WASHINGTON — Are we really that sort of country? Are we really a nation so narrowminded and nativist that we would deny citizenship to bright and talented young adults with the brains to become surgeons, engineers or astronauts? Are we so grimly determined to punish illegal border-crossings that we would deport young men and women who want to fight for the United States in Afghanistan? Surely, we are a more generous people than that. Surely, we are a smarter people than that. Yet, we are foreclosing an opportunity to welcome a group of young people with the promise of becoming stellar citizens. The Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act — a bill that would grant “green cards” to, in all likelihood, no more than 1 million of the nation’s 11 million illegal immigrants — is in trouble. It narrowly passed the House last week, but its prospects in the Senate are poor. An irrational hard line on illegal immigration has come to be one of the most important principles of the

An irrational hard line on illegal immigration has come to be one of the most important principles of the Republican Party, a position that its elected officials dare not flout.

Republican Party, a position that its elected officials dare not flout. Only eight Republicans voted for the DREAM Act in the House, and Senate Republicans who used to support it have run away from it. Those include Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, who was chief sponsor of the original DREAM Act when it was introduced in 2001. Now, he fears a Tea Party challenge of the sort that claimed his Republican colleague from Utah, Sen. Bob Bennett, and he wants nothing to do with the bill. There is something scarily shortsighted about this. Even as President Barack Obama has stressed

that our economy’s fortunes depend on increasing the number of college graduates, our elected representatives would reject this young Harvard student, who wrote anonymously of her plight in an online publication, The Daily Beast: “I’m a senior at Harvard and I’m undocumented. ... I was the valedictorian of my high school class and got full scholarships to the country’s best schools. It is important that I point out I have been published in some of the top magazines and am currently working on a book, an excerpt of which has already been published.” We’d give the boot to Jessica

Colotl, who has come close to completing her degree at metro Atlanta’s Kennesaw State University. We’d kick out Marco (he didn’t want his last name used), who studied engineering at Georgia Tech after earning a perfect score on the math portion of his SAT. And we’d reject countless other strivers who have heeded a familiar strain in American culture: Study, stay in school, work hard. That’s the ticket to success. Sen. Jeff Sessions. R-Ala., has called the bill a “reckless proposal for mass amnesty.” It is nothing of the sort. It’s a narrowly tailored measure that would apply only to people under the age of 30, who came to the United States before they were 16, and who’ve lived here at least five years. The vast majority of them were brought to this country by their parents when they were too young to know anything about immigration laws. The legislation requires them to complete two years of college or military service and to abide by other laws to be eligible for a 10-year conditional residency.

Because of its requirements, immigration experts think that about 800,000 illegal immigrants would ultimately be eligible. After 10 years, DREAM Act beneficiaries could apply for permanent residency. After five years of permanent residency, they could apply for citizenship. That series of steps — at least 15 years before citizenship from DREAM Act provisions — gives the lie to the claim that beneficiaries could become immediate sponsors to their undocumented family members. They couldn’t. Besides, any family member who came here illegally has to go back to his country for 10 years. Still, I suppose it’s possible there might be 13-year-olds in Guatemala or Columbia who’d hire a coyote to cross the border illegally in order to get the opportunity to join the U.S. armed forces when they’re 18 years old. If so, let them come.

I am not talking about these people that run advertisements that scream that the credit card companies are giving billions and billions and now it’s your turn. Companies like Consumer Credit Counseling Service would be your best shot. Further, you mentioned that you have four children and the first one going to college. With all due respect to kids, I believe that they have to find their own way. You cannot afford to pay for college. I believe you have to give your kids roots, wings and standards, and then they should be on their own. I wouldn’t consider raiding my retirement account to help with college expenses. You didn’t indicate, but community college should be very seriously considered by families with limited income, such as yours. •

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate is moving to pass a package that would spare taxpayers at every income level from a significant tax increase on Jan. 1. The package will then go to the House, where Democrats are fuming over extended tax breaks for the wealthy that President Barack Obama negotiated with Senate Republicans. House Democrats are considering possible changes, perhaps holding a vote to enact a higher estate tax than Obama negotiated. But even critics of the package say they expect it to pass as is. “There’s a political reality here,” said Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr., D-N.J. “We can jump up and down all we want about the higher-end estate taxes, and I don’t think anything’s going to change because the

At a glance Some of the things the package extends: • Lower tax rates for taxpayers at every income level. The top rate, on taxable income above $379,150, would stay at 35 percent, instead of increasing to 39.6 percent. The bottom rate, on taxable income below $8,500 for individuals and $17,000 for married couples, would stay at 10 percent, instead of increasing to 15 percent. Cost: $186.8 billion. • More generous itemized deductions for high-income households. Cost: $20.7 billion. • Marriage penalty relief, increasing the standard deduction for married couples. Cost: $18 billion. • A more generous Earned Income Tax Credit for low-income families. Cost: $15.7 billion. Senate isn’t going to change it.” Rep. Louise Slaughter, D-N.Y., chairwoman of the House Rules Committee, said the House could take up the bill today or Thursday. The Senate has scheduled

a midday vote on the bill. It is expected to easily pass the Senate with broad bipartisan support after clearing a procedural vote Monday, 83-15. “I think the Senate is going to pass this measure ensuring that no one’s taxes go up

by a very significant margin, and I hope that our friends in the House will understand that that’s the best way to go forward — simply pass the Senate bill, get it down to a president who supports the understanding,” said Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. McConnell warned House Democrats that any changes could derail the package. “This agreement is not subject to being reopened.” The bill would extend expiring tax cuts at every income level that were enacted under President George W. Bush. It also would renew jobless benefits for the long-term unemployed that is due to lapse, and enact a one-year cut in Social Security taxes. The bill’s cost, $858 billion, would be added to the deficit.

Mississippi Capitol nativity display draws fire from Wisconsin-based group JACKSON, Miss. — A privately funded nativity scene is on display this year inside the Mississippi Capitol. Justin Barnard, chairman of the Mississippi-based 9/11 Remembrance Foundation, said Republican Lt. Gov. Phil Bryant asked if his group would sponsor the display. It features a barn that’s about 4 feet tall, with figures of Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus. The scene is displayed on the first floor rotunda at the center of the Capitol, where a wide variety of groups — from arts promoters to health care providers — set up booths during legislative sessions to advocate for their causes. Annie Laurie Gaylor, cochair of the Freedom From Religion Foundation, said that her Wisconsin-based group wants to erect a sign near the display in Mississippi that says, among other things, “Religion is but myth and superstition.”

$1.5M Shell donation to build artificial reefs BATON ROUGE — Shell Oil Company has donated $1.5 million to the Coastal Conservation Association for marine habitat conservation, and the first $250,000 will be used on Louisiana’s Independence Island. The island, in Barataria Bay near Grand Isle, will get two new limestone reefs that will provide a new fishing spot for anglers in Grand Isle. The reefs will help reverse some

Extend review time for drilling, Senate says

of the coastal erosion and subsidence that had sunk much of Independence Island and ended its viability as a fisheries habitat.

WASHINGTON — A bill moving toward approval in the Senate would increase by 60 days the amount of time the Interior Department has to conduct environmental and safety reviews of offshore drilling projects. The bill would extend the review period for offshore exploration plans from 30 days to 90 days. The Obama administration has said an extension is necessary to ensure projects are adequately reviewed. The agency responsible for offshore drilling was widely criticized after the Gulf oil spill for rushing through BP’s permit for a deepwater well without sufficient environmental review.

MDOT tries new system for truck inspections FULTON, Miss. — The Mississippi Department of Transportation is trying new technology that allows enforcement officers to check commercial vehicles while the trucks are still rolling. MDOT is using the so-called Smart Roadside System, funded by a $3.5 million federal grant. The system allows on-the-go checks for license plate numbers, weight loads, brakes and exhaust.

Park

If you go The Vicksburg National Military Park in partnership with the Old Court House Museum will kick off the 150th anniversary of the Civil War with a re-enactment of Mississippiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s secession and the â&#x20AC;&#x153;First Guns in the Westâ&#x20AC;? on Jan. 8. â&#x20AC;˘ At the Old Court House Museum, the Articles of Secession will be read and the U.S. flag will be replaced with the Confederate â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bonnie Blue Flag,â&#x20AC;? at 10 a.m., followed by a historical program inside the museum. â&#x20AC;˘ At Fort Hill, a re-enactment of Vicksburgâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s firing on the riverboat A.O. Tyler will be at 2 p.m. Admission to both events is free, but the normal $8 per vehicle charge to enter VNMP for tours will remain in effect. For more information, call VNMP at 601-636-0583.

Mississippi seceded from the Union on Jan. 9, 1861, and the Bonnie Blue flag was raised over the Capitol in Jackson. South Carolina had seceded Dec. 20, 1860. Januaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s observance will begin at 10 a.m., on the east portico of the Old Court House, where Mississippiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ordinance of Secession will be read along with â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Declaration of the Immediate Causes, which Induce and Justify the Secession of the State of Mississippi from

the Federal Unionâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a list of grievances against the federal government, which has been called Mississippiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Declaration of Independence â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and the flags will be changed to the accompaniment of an artillery salute from a riverside battery of cannon. Directly after the chang-

ing of the flag, a program in the upstairs courtroom will include an introduction to the Civil War, by Kavanaugh, and a lecture

on the attitude of Vicksburg toward secession and its effects on the city, by Jeff Giambrone, a Bolton native who worked as a historian at the Old Court House Museum from 1996 to 2005 and has authored several books on Vicksburg and the Civil War. At 2 p.m., an artillery battery atop Fort Hill in the military park will re-enact what Kavanaugh called the â&#x20AC;&#x153;first guns in the westâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the firing on the riverboat A.O. Tyler. In addition to the demonstration, park staff will present an interpretive program describing the actual event and the facts surrounding it, he said. Reviewing the events of

that January 150 years ago, Kavanaugh pointed out that the same day Mississippi seceded, South Carolina fired from Morris Island in Charleston Harbor at the steamship Star of the West, carrying food and supplies for the federal garrison in Fort Sumter. Vicksburgâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s firing on the Tyler took place four days later, on Jan. 13, 1861. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Civil War, a struggle that would claim over 625,000 American lives during the next four years, had begun,â&#x20AC;?

City

had the rating downgraded in 2008. Bonds from the 2007 issue were being repaid to Memphis-based Duncan Williams Inc. at a 4.13 percent annual interest over 10 years, with final payment due in September 2017. Final payment on the 2001 bond issue that went toward sprucing up downtown will be April 1, 2011. City accountant Doug Whittington said recent payments have reduced the city’s true outstanding debt on the 2001 and 2007 infrastructure-related bond issues to $18.4 million, and was confident the service wouldn’t lower the city’s credit rating. “The watchlist was placed because (the audits) are being done,” Whittington said. “I would hope they don’t lower it over something that has nothing to do with our creditworthiness.”

Continued from Page A1. completed within a year, but more than 60 days. “When I came in, we were four years behind,” said Winfield, who took office in July 2009. “Now we’re two years behind.” He said he was unaware of Tuesday’s opinion from Moody’s. “We will work diligently to get the ’08 and ’09 audits done.” Vicksburg received its rating in May, when Moody’s recalibrated it from the A2 rating assigned to the city’s $16.9 million in general obligation bonds for road paving, recreation upgrades and the bridge at Washington and Clark streets. In May 2009, that rating was given as a correction to reflect the city’s higher rating compared to bond insurer AMBAC, a firm that

Robbery Continued from Page A1. Britton & Koontz Bank at 2059 U.S. 61 North, where he threatened a teller with violence in his demand for money, Pace said. After being given the money, Collins left the bank on foot, Pace said. A witness told deputies a white van left the area minutes after the robbery, and a vehicle fitting the description was spotted eight minutes later on Mount Alban Road. The van’s driver ignored sirens and lights and continued east on Scott Road then north on Mississippi 27 where deputies threw down spike strips that flattened two of the van’s tires. The van continued, to Warriors Trail, where it ran into an investigator’s car. Collins was arrested and no weapon was found, Pace said. Collins was in the Warren

A9

County Jail this morning without bond pending a court hearing planned for this afternoon. The arrest is not Collins’ first brush with the law. Records show he was convicted in 1995 of bank robbery, burglary and uttering a forgery in Harrison County. He was sentenced to seven years in prison and was released after serving five. In Vicksburg, Collins was charged twice with embezzlement from Waffle House, once a felony and once a misdemeanor, Vicksburg police Lt. Bobby Stewart said this morning. After Collins paid restitution on the felony theft of $3,125 in 2008, Stewart said, the charges were dropped. The Vicksburg Police Department had four misdemeanor warrants for traffic violations against Collins when he was arrested Tuesday, Stewart said. Although dates of service

could not be confirmed, Collins reportedly served in the U.S. military and was employed by a police department on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. In Vicksburg, Collins has been a part-time coach at PCA for about a year. Headmaster Doug Branning issued a written statement this morning, but declined to answer questions. “We are saddened and shocked by the actions of Mr. Derrick Collins,” the statement said. “Mr. Collins has been well respected by the students, parents and faculty at Porters Chapel Academy. Mr. Collins is not a classroom teacher at PCA. However, he is a part-time coach in football and basketball.” Collins also has been listed for a year as a coach for a youth league football team, the Vicksburg Eagles, which plays at the Vicksburg Junior High School field on Baldwin Ferry Road near Mission 66. The league is for ages 6 to 12.

Tubbs

House

Continued from Page A1. the court file, indicated they were split 10-2 to convict. Tubbs pleaded guilty in 1993 to raping a 10-yearold girl and served about 10 years of a 25-year sentence. The previous conviction was allowed into evidence in this week’s trial only to show motive, intent or challenge Tubbs’ defense that his contact with the child had been the result of “mistake or accident.” A jury spokesman said jurors had considered all the evidence and three separate votes had been taken, but no progress toward a unanimous decision had been made in the last hour of their deliberations. “It happens that different minds see things differently,” Patrick said, and thanked them for their service. District Attorney Ricky

Continued from Page A1. Smith said the family of the child, who testified Monday that Tubbs had molested her, would be very disappointed the child would have to go through another trial. “It’s very unfortunate the jury could not reach a decision,” said Smith. “But we definitely intend to retry the defendant.” “It’s hard to say what the motivating factor is with juries,” said Louis Field, Tubbs’ attorney. “People sometimes just don’t see eye to eye.” He spoke briefly with Tubbs after the jury was dismissed. Tubbs was arrested Dec. 21 and charged with molesting the child after she told her mother several days earlier that he had touched her, and pointed to her private parts when asked where on her body. The mother took the child to the hospital,

where an examination revealed no physical marks of molestation. A later DNA test showed, however, that a sample from Tubbs was an identical match to DNA found in the child’s underwear. Earlier Tuesday, Kathryn Moyse, an expert witness in the field of forensic DNA analysis who works for Scales Biological Laboratory in Brandon, told the court that so much male DNA had been found in the child’s underwear, it had to be diluted 10 times to properly conduct the test. The DNA found was an identical match to a sample taken from Tubbs, but could also be a match with certain male relatives, Moyse said. In addition, it matched one individual in a randomly created database of about 8,000 people.

She said the quantity of DNA found was not consistent with casual contact or transfer from one item of clothing to another, or from random skin cells or hair, but would have had to come from some body fluid. Field, however, raised questions about how the child’s articles of clothing had been stored, as well as how the underwear and Tubbs’ DNA swab were packaged before being sent for testing. Several defense witnesses also testified that they were present in the home where the molestation was reported to have occurred and saw nothing unusual. Smith countered that none of them said they were in the room with Tubbs and the child, and that Tubbs’ statements to police had been inconsistent and implausible.

On Friday, House, his wife and their two sons will head to the Cayman Islands for a vacation. They will then return to the state for the holidays before House begins fulfilling his contractual obligation to NBC by speaking about healthy living and losing weight. “It’s a lifestyle change,” House told Roker this morning, “not a diet anymore.” Before being picked to participate in “The Biggest Loser,” House was without a job, having lost his position as a grocery store sales representative. Now, he has accepted a position with a South Carolina high school called Mindstream Academy, which is for overweight teens committed to getting healthy. He is also set to launch a blog, at www.biggestloserpatrick.com, where he will give tips for eating healthy through the holidays, he said in the NBC interview this morning. But, he told Roker, “The first thing I’m going to do (with the $250,000) is go back to my parents and in-laws and pay them back the money I’ve borrowed this year.”

South Korea stages drill on tensions with North SEOUL, South Korea — South Koreans stopped their cars, donned gas masks and ducked into underground shelters today in the country’s biggest-ever evacuation drill — a government attempt to prepare traditionally indifferent citizens for possible new attacks by North Korea. Fears of war on the divided Korean peninsula have intensified since the rivals fired artillery shells at each other last month across their tense western sea border. Four South Koreans on a front-line island were killed; the North’s casualties are unknown.

Man shows no AIDS after blood transplant A very unusual blood transplant appears to have cured an American man living in Berlin of infection with the AIDS virus, but doctors say the approach is not practical for wide use. The man, who is in his 40s, had a blood stem cell transplant in 2007 to treat leukemia. His donor not only was a good blood match but also had a gene mutation that confers natural resistance to HIV. Now, three years later, the recipient shows no signs of leukemia or HIV infection, according to a report in the journal Blood.

Jobless woes keep Fed with bond plan WASHINGTON — The Federal Reserve said Tuesday it will maintain the pace of its $600 billion Treasury bond-buying program because the economy is still too weak to bring down high unemployment. The Fed’s bond purchases

Wiki founder awaits bond appeal hearing LONDON — WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange will spend at least one more night in a British prison, after court officials said today that an appeal against the Julian decision to Assange grant him bail would not be heard for at least 24 hours. Officials at the High Court in London said the appeal by Swedish authorities would be heard Thursday. The court said further details were to be confirmed later today. On Tuesday, a judge ordered Assange released on $316,000 bail, but Swedish prosecutors challenged the decision. Assange has spent a week

in prison following his surrender to British police over a Swedish sex-crimes warrant. He denies any wrongdoing but has refused to voluntarily surrender to Sweden’s request to extradite him for questioning.

Rioters in Athens rage over economy ATHENS, Greece — Protesters clashed with riot police across Athens today, torching cars, hurling gasoline bombs and sending Christmas shoppers fleeing in panic during a general strike against the government’s latest frugality measures. Police fired tear gas and flash grenades as the violence escalated outside parliament and spread to other parts of the capital.

At least 38 killed in blasts in Iran TEHRAN, Iran — Two suicide bombers blew themselves up near a mosque in southeastern Iran today, killing at least 38 people at a Shiite mourning ceremony, state media reported. The attack took place outside the Imam Hussein Mosque in the port city of Chahbahar, near the border with Pakistan, the official IRNA news agency said.

Vicksburg Junior’s Robotics team takes first place prize From staff reports Vicksburg Junior High School’s first Robotics team, Gator Bait, has bagged a first-place trophy in the First Lego League Mississippi Championship. The trophy — made of Legos — was awarded in the Project Presentation category, “‘Rappin’ Up Prosthetics.” The all-day event, held Dec. 4 in Hattiesburg, consisted of 38 teams from across the state competing in three areas — Core Values Teamwork Challenge, Robot Game

and Project Presentation. Gator Bait’s winning entry, focused on the theme of finding biomedical engineering solutions to today’s scientific problems for the human body, involved alleviating wounds caused by prosthetic devices. Team members designed and illustrated a tri-fold board presentation on their solution of medicated disposable pads, and choreographed movements and lyrics for the oral presentation, a rap written by team member Charity Lockridge, seventh grade, the daughter

of Christopher Lockridge and Khelli Lockridge. The team worked after school for several months building, designing and programming their robot, named RoboGator, that successfully completed many obstacles during event challenges. In addition to the trophy, each team member received medallions. Other team members are Bill Cohen, seventh grade, the son of William and Julie Cohen; Bristol Emerson, eighth grade, the son of Kevin and Jennie Emer-

son; Angelo Hernandez, seventh grade, the son of Erika Maldonado; Ashley Moore, seventh grade, the daughter of Cliff and Donna Moore; KeAndrea Ringold, seventh grade, the daughter of Victoria Parker; KeShonda Smith, seventh grade, the daughter of Belinda Willis; and Joshua Wilson, seventh grade, the son of Shellon Wilson. Coaches are Chris Bates and Marilyn Jones, with volunteer mentors Tommy Carr, Chuck Dickerson, Eddie Melton and Andrew Simmons of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Engineer

Research and Development Center. Local sponsors are Rick Tillotson and Dr. Peggy Wright of ERDC and Auto 1 Stop. Parent chaperones were Julie Cohen and Jennifer Emerson. The team raised money for the trip to Hattiesburg by hosting a game show called “Are You Smarter than an Eighth Grader” on Nov. 19. To prepare for the season, many club members went to the FLL Kickoff Event on Sept. 18 at Stennis Space Center in Hancock County.

Parents looking to party on New Year’s should snag sitter now By The Associated Press Parents, give yourselves the gift of an early resolution: Snag a sitter pronto for New Year’s Eve and expect to open those wallets wide. The hunt for child care on the year’s most lucrative night for sitters began in June for some parents, though the more usual approach is to wait until the last minute, panic and shell out top dollar. “Most people will book the week before New Year’s Eve. We’re still a society of procrastinators, for sure,” said Melissa Marchwick, a spokeswoman in Chicago for the caregiver match service Sittercity.com. Hourly rates for the big night can more than double, she said. Some sitters are looking for extra incentives like fatter

tips, festive food and safe, costfree passage home amid the craziness. “The parents who start looking earlier have more of their pick and there’s less competition,” Marchwick said. “They can get those sitters at a more normal rate.” Marchwick’s site, which charges membership fees but offers a free, seven-day trial, has about a million caregivers available nationwide. The site helps parents check references, conduct interviews and use free access to background checks. The race for New Year’s Eve kid care is fierce because many sitters like to celebrate, too. College kids are on break from classes — living la vida loca — and fewer high-schoolers baby-sit at all, consumed by

lives of academics, sports and extracurriculars. “We’re seeing an older and older sitter,” Marchwick said. “The average now is 27 years old, much more experienced.” Want a sitter but can’t afford double time? Pay for two or three hours and add a flat $100 to spend the night. If that’s too much, share a sitter with friends and try to negotiate, but don’t forget the tip. “I kind of think New Year’s is overrated,” said Samantha Haviser, a 24-year-old volunteer coordinator for a nonprofit in Washington, D.C. She plans to baby-sit the night away. Haviser is asking for $25 to $30 an hour. Use Sittercity’s calculator — www.sittercity. com/rates — to get a read on the rule of thumb in your Zip code, then double it or more for

the holiday. The tool factors in the age of a sitter, experience level and number of children involved. Mom Laura Ceriello, 41, in New York City, said making merry en masse like the Times Square scene means the night belongs mostly to amateurs. She and her husband had two party invitations, one that included kids and one for adults only. They chose to take their 5-year-old daughter along. “Maybe I’m just too old,” she said. Tracy Ferry’s feeling frisky in suburban D.C. She usually spends $12 to $15 an hour for a sitter. She and her husband are throwing a party for New Year’s and she found care for the children of friends when she booked her own help at an hourly rate of $30.

this week’s recipes

The Food Network is offering holiday cookie ideas. Samples from Giada De Laurentiis and Claire Robinson: •

Lemon Ricotta Cookies with Lemon Glaze For the cookies: 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon salt 1 stick unsalted butter, softened 2 cups sugar 2 eggs 1 (15-ounce) container whole milk ricotta cheese 3 tablespoons lemon juice 1 lemon, zested For the glaze: 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar 3 tablespoons lemon juice 1 lemon, zested Preheat the oven to 375. For the cookies: In a medium bowl combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside. In a large bowl, combine the butter and the sugar. Using an electric mixer beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about three minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating until incorporated. Add the ricotta cheese, lemon juice and lemon zest. Beat to combine. Stir in the dry ingredients. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Spoon the dough (about 2 tablespoons for each cookie) onto the baking sheets. Bake for 15 minutes, until slightly golden at the edges. Remove from the oven and let the cookies rest on the baking sheet for 20 minutes. For the glaze: Combine the powdered sugar, lemon juice and lemon zest in a small bowl and stir until smooth. Spoon about 1/2 teaspoon onto each cookie and use the back of the spoon to gently spread. Let the glaze harden for about two hours. Pack the cookies into a decorative container. •

Turtle Graham Bars Approximately 14 graham crackers (if each graham cracker is 5” x 2.5”) 1 cup (two sticks) unsalted butter 1 cup packed dark brown sugar 1 cup chopped pecans Kosher salt, to taste 12 ounces dark chocolate, finely chopped Preheat the oven to 350. Line a rimmed baking sheet with a silicone mat. Arrange the graham crackers in a single layer on the lined baking sheet. Put the butter, brown sugar, pecans and a pinch of salt in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil for a couple of minutes, stirring constantly. Pour the butter mixture evenly over the graham crackers and bake for 15 minutes. Remove and set aside. Melt the chocolate in a glass bowl placed over simmering water. Pour the chocolate over the toffee-covered graham crackers and spread evenly. Chill in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes. Cut into bars.

Regional recipes spice up the sip By The Associated Press Fancy some eggnog? How about some posset? A soupcon of syllabub? Or maybe a wee spot of biersuppe? They’re all variations on the eggs-sugar-milk-booze creation that seems to have as many incarnations as jolly old Santa Claus/Kris Kringle/ Joulupukki himself. Take coquito, a Puerto Rican tradition that combines eggs, cream of coconut, rum and spices for ultra-rich seasonal sipping. Daisy Martinez remembers grating Daisy coconut by Martinez the hour with her sister for her mother’s special version of this drink. These days, there’s canned cream of coconut to be had in abundance — “It’s just as good and really time- and labor-friendly,” points out Martinez, who hosts “Viva Daisy” on the Cooking Channel and has written several cookbooks, including the recent, “Daisy’s Holiday Cooking.” Then again, you could try a “Yard of Flannel,” a recipe from colonial times included in Holly Arnold Kinney’s cookbook, “Shinin’ Times at the Fort,” a collection of recipes from the family’s landmark restaurant near Denver. Flannel relies on beer, not liquor, for its punch and, in fact, that’s how the drink was initially made, says Kinney, noting that “nog” is an old English word for strong beer (noggin, meanwhile, was a small wooden cup used in taverns). Kinney’s recipe calls for blending hot ale with other

ingredients gently (so the eggs don’t curdle) resulting in a mixture that is silky, or as “soft as flannel.” Coachmen would drive up to a tavern and call for a “yard of flannel,” the drink served in a long, skinny glass. Handed up to the coachman as he sat on his tall seat, it was a drink that would refresh and “warm the cockles of his heart,” says Kinney. Over time, bourbon or rum, which were cheap and available, replaced beer. Kinney’s Southern-born mother used to make syllabub, a variation that uses wine. But she likes the idea of drinking something that harkens back to colonial days. “It’s delicious,” she says. However you like your eggnog, it’s likely you’ve already picked up a carton or two. Dairies across the country have been producing eggnog since early November. “Over the years, it’s moved up,” says Neal Glaeser, president of Denali Ingredients in New Berlin, Wis., which makes eggnog base for dairies. “It’s really become a winter drink, not

A glass of Coquito

necessarily a holiday drink.” And even with the mass produced eggnogs, tastes vary from region to region,

with dairies on the East Coast looking for spicier blends while those in the Midwest seem bigger on rum flavoring.

Television cooking show host and author Paula Deen, a native of Albany, Ga., has her own family recipe, “Mama’s Eggnog,” which combines bourbon, cream and other delicious things. “In the Hiers family household, we didn’t celebrate a Christmas without Mama’s Eggnog!” says Deen. “The See Eggnog, Page C3.

Yummy drink adds smoothness to holiday batter By Jim Romanoff The Associated Press The trouble with eggnog is that it seems destined for our hips. And other than simply abstaining, there’s not a lot we can do about that. What we can do is offer some interesting ways of getting it from the carton to your waistline. For example, a splash of eggnog can add an almost otherworldly creaminess to just about any smoothie or milkshake. It also makes an excellent substitute for milk or cream in puddings and French toast batter. And don’t forget the baked goods. This golden eggnog loaf is similar to pound cake and is delicious served on

More ways to use booze

Shot of rum adds extra punch to holiday raisin bars By The Associated Press What’s better than eating or drinking? Eating while drinking. “The best stew I ever had someone made with Scotch,” says Patricia Helding, founder of New York’s Fat Witch Bakery, who likes to frost brownies with Champagne icing. “It just gives it a little fizz and that lovely Champagney flavor.” We all know booze adds body to stews and roasts, but Helding says it also imparts aroma and sweetness to baked goods. It makes a classic brownie festive — think Kentucky bourbon balls — and far-out confections like rum raisin bars as playful as ice cream. But remember that friends don’t let friends bake drunk. “More is not better,” says Helding, whose cookbook “Fat Witch Brownies” (Rodale, 2010) features a few boozy bars. “You don’t want the dough to get too runny.” And if your finished product needs more punch? “You can add liquor to any buttercream icing,” she says. It’s nearly impossible to get drunk on cake, but Helding suggests you warn your guests about the alcohol in case they have religious or other restrictions. A simple, elegant sign that says “Whiskey Brownies” or “Rum Cake” will do. And let’s say you do eat too many pickled pecan bars and find yourself with an unsavory resolution: like losing 10 pounds. Sweets can help!

sugar 2 large eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon salt

The associated press

Rum Raisin Bars “To try and deprive yourself completely, it just fuels the desire,” Helding says. Instead, enjoy small servings of very rich, ultra-satisfying desserts, items made with real butter and real cream. Add nuts and cranberries and chocolate chips, anything that makes

the cookie or brownie the best one possible. “It’s all about portions,” she says. “A lot of people say, ‘Once a week I have a cookie and it’s the best tasting cookie I’ve ever had.’ Thin people are always like that.” The lesson here? Take a bite

(one), take a swig, and have a happy new year.

Rum Raisin Bars Recipe from Patricia Helding’s “Fat Witch Brownies” Start to finish: 45 minutes (plus overnight soaking of raisins)

Yield: 16 bars 1/2 cup light rum 1 3/4 cups raisins (mixture of dark and golden) 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature, plus extra for coating the pan 1 1/2 cups packed light brown

In a medium bowl, combine the rum and the raisins. Cover and let soak for at least 6 hours, or overnight. Heat the oven to 350. Coat a 9-by-9-inch baking pan with baking spray. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to cream the butter and brown sugar. Beat in the eggs and vanilla, then continue mixing until the batter is well combined. Measure the flour and salt and sift together directly into the batter. Mix the batter gently until no trace of the dry ingredients remains. Strain the rum-soaked raisins and mix them in using a wooden spoon. Using a silicone spatula, spread the batter evenly into the prepared baking pan. You may have to use your fingers (lightly flour them first), as this batter is very sticky. Bake for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted at the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and cool on a rack for 1 hour. Cut just before serving.

Get in the Christmas spirit with seasonal take on classic mojito By The Associated Press Time to get into the holiday spirit. Or spirits as the case may be. And should you need assistance, bartenders coast-tocoast are figuring out new ways to capture festive in a glass. Apples and spices say seasonal sipping to mixologist Jose Torrella, who’s come up with a holiday mojito that uses cider and Calvados to add a nuance of noel. The best cocktail presentation is like painting a portrait, says Torrella, barman at the Barclay Bar &Grill at the InterContinental New York Barclay. Bringing out a festive theme requires “spirits, cordials, fresh ingredients always — juices, herbs, spices, vegetables and fruits,” he says. “Though multiple elements may seem confusing, in the end the joy is in the simplicity from the abundance.” And don’t forget the special glasses. A quick way to take a drink from ho-hum to holiday is to rim the glass with colored sugar.

Scott Beattie, bartender at Spoonbar in Healdsburg, Calif., and author of “Artisanal Cocktails,” has a couple of holiday go-to items —St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram, a rum liqueur, and angostura bitters. Take something like a simple hot toddy made of brandy, lemon juice and honey or sugar, add a dash of bitters and stir with a cinnamon stick and — voila! John Cooper, developer of Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur, keeps his holiday drinks simple. He makes a drink called autumn spice that is equal parts ginger liqueur and apple cider with one-half part of lemon juice for sprightliness. He introduced the liqueur in 2008 after spending a good deal of time experimenting with the ingredients, which include a maceration of fresh ginger to which aged cognac, honey and other ingredients are added. And if you need more inspiration you might take a page from Christmas champion Charles Dickens himself. After Scrooge’s holiday

mood goes from humbug to humdinger following a night spent with spirits, he celebrates by wishing his putupon clerk, Bob Cratchit, a merry Christmas, promising him a raise and making plans for the two of them to discuss the Cratchit family future over a bowl of smoking bishop, a type of mulled wine made with oranges or lemons. That’s an economic stimulus package to cheer about.

Holiday Mojito Recipe adapted from Jose Torrella at the Barclay Bar &Grill at the InterContinental New York Barclay Start to finish: 40 minutes (10 minutes active, plus cooling) Servings: 4 For the Calvados base: 1 cup apple cider 1/3 cup Calvados 2 cinnamon sticks 2 star anise 1 apple, cut into chunks For the mojitos: 20 fresh mint leaves 6 ounces (3/4 cup) light rum 4 ounces (1/2 cup) simple

Actor Rip Torn says guilty in break-in Actor Rip Torn has pleaded guilty to charges stemming from allegations he broke into a Connecticut bank while drunk and armed, prosecutors said. The star of movies including “Men in Black” and “The Beastmaster” was arrested in January after police found him inside the Litchfield Bancorp with a loaded revolver. State’s attorney David Shepack said the Emmy Award-winning actor pleaded guilty Tuesday to reckless endangerment, criminal trespass, criminal mischief and the illegal carrying of a Rip firearm. Torn The 79-year-old actor was given a 2 1/2-year suspended sentence and three years of probation. Conditions include a ban on firearm possession and random drug and alcohol tests.

Chef planned killing of wife for love It was a story even too bizarre for Hollywood script writers. Juan-Carlos Cruz, the star of the cooking show “Calorie Commando,” plotted a murder-for-hire of the woman who had been his high school sweetheart and devoted wife for 17 years. And he told police he did it for love — to spare her the pain and despair of not being able to conceive a child after a decade of fertility treatments. “His wife was brokenhearted and lamenting over the treatments. The defendant then said that this was a ’merciful’ way to end her suffering,” according to a probation report on Cruz released Tuesday. Cruz was sentenced Monday to nine years in prison after pleading no contest to trying to hire two homeless men to slash the throat of his wife, Jennifer Campbell.

Johansson, Reynolds end marriage Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds are breaking up. “After long and careful consideration on both our parts, we’ve decided to end our marriage,” the two entertainers said Tuesday through their publicist, Meredith O’Sullivan. “We entered our relationship Ryan Scarlett with love, and it’s with love and Reynolds Johansson kindness we leave it. While privacy isn’t expected, it’s certainly appreciated,” they said. The 26-year-old actress and 34-year-old actor were engaged in May 2008 and married that September. The couple kept their courtship and nuptials private, releasing few details about their wedding and rarely appearing in public together.

Postman arrested for naked delivery A Wisconsin postal carrier said he simply wanted to cheer up a woman on his rounds who seemed “stressed out” when he decided to deliver mail in the buff. But upon further review, the worker told police that delivering mail while completely naked probably wasn’t a good idea. A police report said the 52-year-old man told the woman he would deliver the mail in the nude to her office in Whitefish Bay to make her laugh. The report said that on Dec. 4 he brought the mail wearing only a smile. The mail carrier was arrested for lewd and lascivious behavior several days later.

Facebook founder named Time’s ‘Person of Year’ NEW YORK (AP) — Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been named Time magazine’s “Person of the Year” for 2010. At 26, Zuckerberg has put himself on the map not only as one of the world’s youngest billionaires, but also as a prominent newcomer to the world of philanthropy. Earlier this year, he pledged $100 million over five years to the Newark, N.J., school system. Now, he’s in the company of media titans Carl Icahn, 74, Barry Diller, 68, and others who have joined Giving Pledge, an effort led by Microsoft founder Bill Gates and investor Warren Buffett to commit the country’s wealthiest people to step up their charitable donations. Zuckerberg owns about a

quarter of Facebook’s shares. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke received the honor last Mark year. The 2008 Zuckerberg winner was then-President-elect Barack Obama. The 2007 winner was Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin. Other previous winners have included Bono, President George W. Bush, and Amazon. com CEO and founder Jeff Bezos. Time’s “Person of the Year” is the person or thing that has most influenced the culture and the news during the past year for good or for ill.

Cooper, Dr. John, Diamond inducted in Rock Hall of Fame NEW YORK (AP) — Neil Diamond had been eligible for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for several years but never got a nomination to join music’s prestigious club. But he was never really worried about it. “I thought about it occasionally, but I kind of figured they’d get around to me at some point,” he said in a phone interview. That point came on Tuesday, as the 2011 class for the Cleveland hall was revealed. Diamond, whose hits include “Sweet Caroline,” made the list, along with the Alice Cooper Band, New Orleans musician Dr. John, Darlene Love and singer-songwriter Tom Waits. Piano man Leon Russell was honored with a musical excellence award, previously the sideman category. Executives Jac Holzman and Art Rupe were given the Ahmet Ertegun Awards. It took three tries before Love, best known for hits such as “(Today I Met) The Boy I’m Gonna Marry” and her work with producer Phil Spector and the Blossoms, was approved for the hall. When reached on Tuesday, an enthusiastic Love said: “I can actually breathe.” The excitement will have to wait for some: Bon Jovi, nominated for the first time, was turned away from the hall, as was LL Cool J, the J. Geils Band, the Beastie Boys, Donna Summer and more. Alice Cooper’s name had been mentioned in conjunction with the Rock Hall for years, but the shock rocker hadn’t been nominated until this year. Like Diamond, Cooper said he wasn’t anxiously waiting. “You know it crosses your mind, but then you think of all the guys who aren’t in there, some of them before you, and you go, ‘Wow.’ ... You realize that it’s a waiting game,” he said. “I don’t think you sit around holding your breath on it.” Cooper, a heavy metal rocker best known for his dark horror themes, said his band was responsible for bringing show business into rock ’n’ roll. Diamond was on the other end of the spectrum, a singersongwriter whose first hit came in the form of a song he wrote for the Monkees, “I’m a Believer.” His early hits in the 1960s included “Girl, You’ll Be A Woman Soon” and “Cherry Cherry.” “The music I was doing was not in vogue. ... I was like a lone voice out there with a guitar, and it was different than what

AIDS fear haunts future for woman with past Dear Abby: I am a 34-yearold woman who finally beat a 13-year battle with drugs. I now have a job, a car, a place of my own and a bank account. My problem is, while I was on drugs I prostituted myself in order to support my habit. Now I’m terrified I have AIDS, and afraid I’ll be told I don’t have long to live. I’m not dating right now, but I’ve had a couple of boyfriends since getting sober. I’m scared for them, but so afraid of getting a death sentence that I’ve never mentioned my fears to anyone. I know I’m being selfish with these guys’ lives, but I’m paralyzed by my fear. What am I going to do? — Terrified in the U.S.A. Dear Terrified: What you are going to do is get yourself tested! Please understand that the fear you are dealing with is the same that anyone who has had multiple sex partners has had to face. You must realize that being exposed to HIV and having AIDS are not the same. If you have been exposed to HIV — and therefore test “positive”

— you need to know it ASAP so you can be prescribed antiviral medications that can PREVENT you from getting AIDS. Getting on those meds can save your life. And you can save the lives of your former boyfriends, too, if you are HIV positive, by telling them to get tested. Dear Abby: I have known my husband for eight years and have been married to him for three. He is a unique and funny man, but he does have a few annoying quirks. The biggest one, and the reason I’m writing to you, is his need to have music blaring in our car. It’s not just when we’re driving, but also when we’re going through drive-thru restaurants, banks and gas stations. Gas stations are the

TOMORROW’S HOROSCOPE

BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION If tomorrow is your birthday: Take care not to neglect old friends just because you’ve met some new ones in the upcoming year. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Optimism is wonderful when realistically applied, but it can be just the opposite when based on false premises. Don’t set goals or targets for yourself that are totally unreasonable. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — When in discussions with friends, you should try to do more listening than talking. There is always plenty of information that you can get from them. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — All you’ll be doing is asking for trouble if you get financially involved in a venture or enterprise that’s promoted by another and about which you know little. Operate within your wheelhouse. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Subdue your impulses to enter a venture of a competitive nature, especially if it’s something outside your bailiwick. Your judgment might be more hopeful than realistic. Aries (March 21-April 19) — An indifferent attitude toward your work will be reflected in your performance, and, regrettably, could cause you to be careless, apathetic and totally unconcerned about the outcome. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Putting unnecessary stress on yourself to get things done a certain way is asking for misery if you can’t pull it off. Relax and do what you can. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Putting pressure on yourself to be the first one out of the starting blocks may result in not pacing yourself properly and faltering before you can get near the finish line. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — If the old ways are working just fine where your work is concerned, don’t experiment with some new procedures that are totally unnecessary. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — You’ll remain in fine shape where your finances are concerned, as long as you don’t lend any money to someone who isn’t likely to pay it back in a timely fashion. Don’t be a sap. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Leave your spouse adequate space to supply his/her input instead of insisting that everything must go your way. All you’ll accomplish is to put him/her in a bad mood. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — If you don’t take control of yourself, your mood could wildly swing between buoyant optimism and crippling doubt. No one will know how to please you today. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Don’t be a patsy and let someone get more deeply indebted to you than this person already is. If you keep falling for his/her sob story, you’ll deserve to be taken for a ride.

TWEEN 12 & 20

BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: I am writing regarding the 13-year-old boy, who is 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighs 220 pounds, and who hit his younger sister because she called him fatty — I protest your answer. You told him that he was a bully and that he should lose weight. I’m a 13-year-old girl who also weighs over 200 pounds, and I beat the tar out of my 10-year-old brother because he called me a “blimp.” What do you have to say about that? — Nameless, Springfield, Ohio. Nameless: I think your little brother was cruel and inconsiderate when he called you a blimp, but I also feel that you are a bully and should get on a well-balanced diet prescribed by a professional nutritionist. Dr. Wallace: As a physician and a father of two teens, I read your column to find out what teens are thinking these days. I was interested in the young lady who felt that she was doing her part for “safe sex” by insisting that her boyfriend wear a latex condom whenever they have sex. As a medical doctor, I have seen surgical gloves fresh out of the wrapper with many cuts or holes in them. The same company that makes the surgical gloves is also the manufacturer of condoms. That’s why condoms are only 90 percent effective for preventing pregnancy and the transmission of diseases. The only safe way for unmarried teens to avoid pregnancy and disease is to abstain from sexual contact. On several occasions, patients of mine were found to be infected with a sexually transmitted disease, but all of their sexual contacts were performed with the benefit of a condom. — Dr. Bob, Miami. Dr. Bob: Thanks for your important information. The more our teen readers learn about the pitfalls of sexual contact, the better equipped they’ll be to make wise choices. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service. E-mail him at rwallace@Copley News Service.

worst because he turns the volume up even louder so he can hear it outside. Not only is it painful to my ears, but it’s embarrassing. I have asked him a number of times to turn it down, but it just leads to arguments. Can you help me talk to him before I lose my hearing? — Bleeding Ears in Spring Valley, Calif. Dear Bleeding Ears: Could it be that your husband suffers from hearing loss (probably from listening to too-loud music), which is why he needs the volume turned up so high? Arguing with him won’t help. He should be checked by an audiologist — a hearing specialist — so that he doesn’t damage his hearing further, and yours won’t be affected. Protecting your hearing is important. That’s why you should consider using ear plugs when you ride with him. P.S. And when you get to the gas station, offer to pump the gas for him. If he refuses, then leave the car with him. Dear Abby: My husband is 7 feet tall and we recently

became parents of a beautiful baby girl. Everywhere we go, people make comments about my husband’s height. He is used to being the target of stares and comments, having experienced it his whole life. Our daughter may grow up to be tall; how would you handle this? — Angela in Bethlehem, Pa. Dear Angela: I would teach my daughter — regardless of her height — to be proud of who she is. If your daughter turns out to be tall, she’ll have plenty of company, because each generation seems to be growing taller than the last one. A woman’s height does not have to be a disadvantage unless she views it that way. If you stress the qualities you feel are important, chances are that’s the person she’ll grow up to be.

Natural detox better, safer than foot pads Dear Dr. Gott: I read your column every day in our newspaper. I enjoy the column very much and have learned a lot from your advice. I have a question about foot detox. Does it really remove toxins from your body? I’ve been doing it for about two years and would like to know if it is a waste of time. Dear Reader: I will touch on the detoxification process before offering my opinion. The manufacturers of detox foot pads say toxins will be drawn from the body while a person sleeps. The instructions indicate a person should stick what looks like a large gauze pad to the bottom of both feet for 30 days in row. The pads are removed in the morning or at the end of a sleep period and are replaced daily. “Evidence” of their success is through the discoloration present on the pads. After the initial process, follow-up maintenance is recommended every few weeks. The ingredients in the pads are purported to give off infrared energy to draw out toxins such as lead and arsenic. They contain plants and herbs, the mineral tourmaline and a mix of wood vinegar. Tourmaline is a hard, colored crystalline borosilicate mineral commonly used in gems, optics and electronics. Wood vinegar is a liquid, brownish red in color. Hmmm, how interesting that when a clean white pad is introduced to the bottom of the foot, it can turn brown. Arsenic is a natural element that behaves like heavy metal. It can be measured through a variety of laboratory methods. Due to naturally occurring geological contamination, high levels can be found in drinking water from deep-drilled wells and in air, water and soil because of mining, coal-fired power plants and smelting. Natural dietary detox without experimenting with foot pads includes eating sulfurrich foods such as eggs, garlic, legumes, fish and onions. Fiber such as fruits and vegetables also help the body detoxify. I should note that foot reflexology has been practiced in China for thousands of years and remains a popular therapy in most of Asia. Believers feel toxins accumulate from the food we eat and the air we breathe. A method of clearing this buildup is through fasting, dieting, sweating, colon cleansing and physical exercise. Thus, people who practice foot reflexology believe the patches are a painless and trouble-free means of addressing the problem. There are no published scientific studies that confirm whether the pads work, or even whether they are safe. I am aware the Federal Trade Commission has approached some distributors because of

deceptive advertising. While the jury is out on this one, my recommendation is that you eat a well-balanced diet, exercise, save your money and soak your feet in warm water to which table salt or Epsom salt has been added.

Designs from the William Rast for Target collection

Timberlake label takes aim at hipsters at Target NEW YORK (AP) — After the highly organized, salehungry holiday shoppers have come and gone, the crowd roaming the aisles at Target is largely made up of hip teenagers and 20-somethings padded with gift cards, looking for someJustin thing cool to Timberlake wear out that very night. That’s where the new collaborative collection from William Rast — aka Justin Timberlake’s fashion label Trace — fits in. Ayala Denim and leather jackets traditionally sell well in the December-January time frame, says Trish Adams, senior vice president of apparel and accessories, and that put William Rast at the top of the retailer’s list for a limited-edition program. For William Rast, Target brings exposure to a wider audience, including some people who have no idea what to expect — and that’s appealing, explains co-founder Trace Ayala, Timberlake’s childhood friend and design partner. “For us, at the end of the day, when a company like Target comes to you, and you’re a brand like ours in an economy like it is, it’s a no-brainer,” Ayala says. The look of this line is 100 percent the bohemian American traveler, the same DNA as the more upscale collection, he says. Yes, you might notice a difference in construction, but you’ll also notice the price tag, which has women’s fauxleather shorts for $39.99 and men’s jeans with oil stains for $49.99. Ayala’s been wearing the jeans and the flannel shirts, which he says are better for his outdoor sports hobbies than the stuff William Rast shows on the runway. Men’s likely interest in the brand was a key part of the deal, says Target’s Adams. “We really wanted to find something that could sell across genders — that’s something hard to find.” The fact that Timberlake’s name isn’t on the label, however, wasn’t a factor. “We think some customers will know the name, but for every garment you sell with people lining out the door to get something from Justin Timberlake or William Rast, there’s customers doing their weekly shopping and see something they like and discover the designer from the hangtag.”

Bulldogs thrash visiting Alabama State By The Associated Press

All America SEC champions Auburn puts two players, Cam Newton and Nick Fairley, on the AP All-America first team. Team list/D2

Schedule PREP SOCCER Vicksburg at WC Friday, 4 p.m.

STARKVILLE — Elgin Bailey scored 13 points and Brian Bryant and Riley Benock added 11 each to lead Mississippi State to a 67-46 victory over Alabama State on Tuesday night. The Bulldogs (7-2) shot 43.9 percent from the field (25-of57) and overcame 17 turnovers to win their third game in three days. “This was all about finding a way to get a win,” MSU coach Rick Stansbury said. “It is the fourth game, but really fatigue is usually more in your mind than in your body. The key to this was playing gritty and making some plays. We had several

players who played gritty and made some key plays in the second half.” Alabama State (1-8) shot just 29 percent from the field (18-of-62) and hit only 6 of 27 3-pointers. Ravern Johnson, Mississippi State’s leading scorer, was suspended for the game for violating the school’s

class attendance policy. The Bulldogs opened the game on a 15-6 run but trailed 28-26 at the half. Mississippi State recovered early in the second half and controlled the game from there. Bailey was 4-of-8 from the field and 5-of-8 from the freethrow line. He also had seven rebounds. Bryant hit 4 of 7 shots from the field, and Benock hit 4-of-7 — including three 3-pointers — and had six rebounds. Kenderek Washington paced the Hornets with nine points. “The key was the zone defense,” Stansbury said. “They really didn’t get the ball into the paint very often.

From the outside, they didn’t shoot a good percentage. Defensively, we played really well in the second half.” Renardo Sidney and Dee Bost, two projected starters for the Bulldogs, did not play because of NCAA suspensions. Sidney is eligible to return Saturday against Virginia Tech, and Bost will be eligible for the start of Southeastern Conference play in January. Both will play in tonight’s exhibition game against Belhaven in Jackson.

sidelines Favre is hopeful to start next game

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Brett Favre’s career isn’t quite over yet. The Minnesota Vikings have been eliminated from playoff contention, but they still need someone to play quarterback for their final three games. Interim coach Leslie Frazier said the 41-year-old Favre is his choice — and he may be back in time for Monday night’s game against Chicago. Favre was feeling better Tuesday, according to Frazier, after his NFLrecord streak of starting 297 straight regularseason games ended Monday with him on the sideline at Ford Field in Detroit during Minnesota’s loss to the Giants. He is nursing a sprained throwing shoulder and a numb hand, but an ultrasound on Favre’s neck and shoulder revealed no nerve damage, Frazier said. For now, the Vikings won’t end Favre’s season, and perhaps his storied career, by putting him on injured reserve. “I don’t see that as being part of the equation at this point,” Frazier said. “It looks like there’s a chance that we’re going to be able to get him back at some point. Hopefully this week.”

points as Jackson State routed Spring Hill. The Tigers (3-7) took their third win in five games after starting the season 0-5. Jackson State shut down the Badgers (4-4) in the second half, allowing only 10 points. Spring Hill, an NAIA school, shot 2-for-21 from the field (9.5 percent) in the second half and 0-for-8 from long range. For the game, the Badgers shot 9 for 42 from the field (21.4 percent), including 1 of 13 from 3-point range. Bush was 9-of-16 from the floor in 24 minutes. Tyrone Hanson added 12 points and The Tigers were 29-for-64 from the field for the game and hit 8 of 23 3-pointers.

New Orleans Saints running back Pierre Thomas runs past St. Louis Rams linebacker David Vobora in the second half Sunday. The Saints defeated the Rams 31-13.

Saints regain their stride By The Associated Press METAIRIE, La. — The streaking New Orleans Saints know the road to the Super Bowl probably won’t go through the Louisiana Superdome. They also believe they can win anywhere as they try to become the first back-to-back NFL champion since the New England Patriots in 2005. Despite winning its sixth in a row against St. Louis on Sunday, New Orleans (10-3) remained a game behind Atlanta in the NFC South. Even if the Saints sweep their last three, including a victory at Atlanta on Dec. 27, the Falcons will clinch the division title if they beat Seattle (6-7) and Carolina (1-12). Without a division championship, the Saints would be a No. 5 seed at best in the NFC playoffs, regardless of their record. “We’re not even worried about that,” linebacker Jonathan Vilma said. “We just

keep focusing on winning each game and keeping the momentum going. Just get us to the playoffs. We’ll worry about the rest later.” The Saints took care of most of coach Sean Payton’s concerns going into the St. Louis game. After converting only one of eight third downs in a sloppy 34-30 win at Cincinnati a week earlier, they converted 11 of 16 against the Rams, retaking the NFL lead with a 49.7 percent success rate for the year. After struggling to get a consistent pass rush in recent weeks, they sacked rookie quarterback Sam Bradford three times, pressured him into two interceptions and caused an intentional grounding penalty. They scored on touchdown drives of 13 and 12 plays the first two times they had the ball while forcing Steven Jackson’s fumble on the Rams’ first possession. Unlike the past two games, when they blew 17-

and 14-point leads and had to rally late in the fourth quarter, they were up by at least 15 the entire second half. “How we’re playing now, it doesn’t matter who we’re playing or where we’re playing,” safety Darren Sharper said. “We’re peaking at the right time.” The next two weeks will provide a good test for Sharper’s theory. New Orleans travels to AFC contender Baltimore on Sunday before playing Atlanta in the Georgia Dome eight days later. With a win at either place, the Saints would have more ammunition for a potential playoff run on the road. With losses, they might not even make the postseason in the top-heavy NFC, where seven teams have eight or more wins. “It’s a competitive stretch,” Payton said. “Clearly, Baltimore is an elite team. It’s another real good challenge for us.” The Saints’ health has

them even more confident. For the first time in Payton’s five-year tenure, they have almost no significant injuries in December on either side of the ball. For the first time since September, every key playmaker was available on offense against St. Louis. Running back Pierre Thomas played Sunday after missing nine games with a left ankle sprain. Running back Reggie Bush returned two weeks earlier after missing eight games with a broken leg. The duo combined for 129 yards from scrimmage, easing the loss of rookie Chris Ivory, who tweaked a hamstring after gaining 47 yards on seven carries in the first quarter. Payton said Ivory would be evaluated at practice today, but the injury did not appear serious. “People around the league now understand the Saints aren’t a soft team,” Bush said. “We can play physical, we can play fast, we can play finesse, we can do it all.”

CINCINNATI — Receiver Terrell Owens says the Cincinnati Bengals’ lousy season is the result of underachieving “from the top down,” and he particularly points a finger at the coaches. Teammate Chad Ochocinco asked Owens during “The T.Ocho Show” on Versus cable network Tuesday night why he thinks the team is 2-11. “I think there’s underachieving from the top down,” Owens said. “You start with the owner, you start with the coaches. And obviously we as players, we are a product of what the coaches are coaching us throughout the Terrell course of Owens the week. “Of course, we have to go out there and play the game. But in order for us to do what we’re allowed to do at the best of our abilities, the coaches have to put the players in the best position.” Owens has been diplomatic for most of the season, which quickly spiraled out of control. He had only one catch for 22 yards during a 23-7 defeat in Pittsburgh on Sunday that was Cincinnati’s 10th straight, matching the franchise record for consecutive losses in a season. In the past couple of weeks, Owens has implied that the Bengals are getting out-coached and not making very good adjustments to opposing defenses. His comments on Tuesday were his most pointed yet. Wearing a T-shirt that said “I (heart) Keeping It Real,” Owens noted that he signed a one-year deal with Cincinnati to improve its passing game and help the defending AFC North champions go deeper into the playoffs.

The 41-year-old closer receives $15 million in each of the next two seasons, with $1.5 million each year deferred with no interest. The deferred money will be paid in $1 million annual installments starting in 2013. Rivera was 3-3 with a 1.80 ERA and 33 saves in 38 chances this year. The Yankees also reached a preliminary agreement with catcher Russell Martin and agreed to a minor league contract with righthander Mark Prior.

NFL Union medical director warns about longer schedule WASHINGTON — The medical director for the NFL players’ union said there could be about 250,000 additional plays — and therefore extra collisions and injuries — in the regular season if the league moves to an 18-game schedule. The league has made increasing the schedule from 16 games to 18 a centerpiece of its negotiations with the union for a new collective bargaining agreement. The current CBA expires in March, and the union has said it expects the owners to lock out the players.

Vikings move game to Minnesota’s stadium MINNEAPOLIS — The Minnesota Vikings are getting ready for a frigid night of football after officials said Tuesday that the Metrodome’s torn roof won’t be ready for Monday night’s matchup against the Chicago Bears, forcing the game to move to University of Minnesota’s TCF Bank Stadium. Inspectors found that damage from the weekend snowstorm that dumped more than 17 inches in Minneapolis and busted through the Metrodome’s Teflon roof was worse than initially thought, according to the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission. Officials decided the roof couldn’t be repaired in six days, but could not immediately estimate how long the process would take. Commission president Roy Terwilliger said they hoped to know more in two to three days. The Vikings immediately turned their “full attention to the University of Minnesota’s TCF Bank Stadium,” the team said in a statement. Vice president for public affairs Lester Bagley told The Associated Press that the NFL has agreed to allow the game to be played at the roofless Gophers’ football stadium.

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Dec. 15 1964 — San Francisco’s Wilt Chamberlain scores 58 points, including nine in overtime, to give the Warriors a 134-132 victory over the New York Knicks. 1973 — Tennessee beats Temple 11-6 in the lowest scoring NCAA basketball game since 1938. With 11:44 left in the first half and Tennessee leading 7-5, Temple holds onto the ball without a shot. Tennessee doesn’t take a shot in the second half, but manages four free throws by John Snow. 1974 — Oakland’s Jim “Catfish” Hunter is ruled a free agent by arbitrator Peter Seitz when A’s owner Charles O. Finley fails to live up to the terms of Hunter’s contract. 1995 — The Vancouver Grizzlies avoid tying the NBA record for consecutive losses in a season by snapping a 19-game losing streak with a 104-100 overtime victory over Portland.

In their fourth game against a Top 25 team, they finally got their upset. Keith Benson, last season’s Summit League player of the year, had 26 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Golden Grizzlies to an 89-82 victory over No. 7 Tennessee on Tuesday night. They took lessons from games in which they played Illinois and Purdue, both ranked teams from the Big Ten, close but not for a full 40 minutes. They almost beat then-No. 7 Michigan State, also of the Big Ten, on Saturday but lost by a point after they failed to make free throws down the stretch. “We’re not scared of anybody,” Kampe said. “We weren’t intimidated by the No. 7 team in the country because we had just played Michigan State, and we should have won that game. We had just played Illinois, and we could have won that game. I think those are big and can help us.” Oakland (6-5) put together a tough schedule this season to prepare them to make another run at winning the Summit League and an NCAA tournament appearance. The win over the Vols was just the Grizzlies’ second against a Top 25 opponent in 27 tries since joining Division I in 1998, and they still have a Dec. 23 date with No. 2 Ohio State. It was only the second time Tennessee (7-1) has lost on its home court to a non-conference opponent in coach Bruce Pearl’s six seasons. The loss came one day after the Vols climbed into the Top 10 and grabbed the No. 1 RPI after beating then-No. 3 Pittsburgh. “This was a combination of running into a good basketball team and not being able to handle success despite our best efforts to get our team excited about playing,” Pearl said. Oakland was in a similar situation against Tennessee as it had been against its previous three ranked opponents. The Grizzlies came out shooting well and played the Vols close throughout the first half, with three lead changes and five ties. The Grizzlies were shooting 70.6 percent with seven minutes to go in the first half — thanks in part to Benson’s 20 points — but the Vols used a 14-2 run to counter the shooting and had a 50-39 halftime lead. But instead of falling apart, Oakland dialed things up in the second half with 57.1 percent shooting to the Vols’ 34.4

percent. The Vols held a 76-68 lead with 7:18 left, then went cold for over five minutes. They tried to regain control with physical play in the paint, but it backfired as they got called for foul after foul while failing to come away with points or rebounds.

Drexel 52, Louisville 46 Rick Pitino didn’t buy into the hype, even as No. 20 Louisville ripped off eight straight wins to open the season. The coach refused to say whether the Cardinals were “legit” following a victory over UNLV last weekend, believing all the 22nd-ranked Runnin’ Rebels did was expose his team’s weaknesses — even if he refused to say what they were. There’s no need for him to expand now, not after Drexel methodically dismantled the Cardinals, ending Louisville’s unbeaten run at its new downtown arena. The Dragons (7-1) slowed the tempo and made the Cardinals (8-1) work while never

backing down to post their first win over a ranked team in four years. “It’s big for our program, it’s big for our confidence,” Drexel coach Bruiser Flint said. “You can’t come in here and lay down.” Drexel hardly did that, dominating the Cardinals on the glass while maintaining a glacial pace to end Louisville’s best start since 1996.
