Factory Connection closes doors in West Point
Suspect involved in 2011 assault case still at large
BY JUSTIN MINYARD news@dailytimesleader.com West Point Police Department investigators always keep their ears to the ground for new leads in old cases. At about 2:28 a.m. June 5, 2011, officers responded to a call made by a patient at the West Point North Mississippi Medical Center, who told officers that he was the victim of an assault. The victim, according to West Point Chief of Investigations Albert Lee, told police that he was assaulted at the American Legion Post No. 212 Hutt. According to the incident report, the victim told police that a neighbor took him to the hospital for treatment. Lee said the victim, possibly due to the injuries suffered in the alleged assault, was unable to give thorough information on the attacker. The victim, according to Lee, had “multiple fractures to the face” from the alleged attack. It is unknown whether anything was stolen from the victim. At about 3:48 p.m. two days later, WPPD officers were dispatched to S&W Mini-Storage located at 224 Bugg St. The owner of one of the storage units, Lee said, reported to responding officers that her unit had been broken into. Lee said the unit owner reported stolen a 42-inch television (model and brand unknown), a chair as well as assorted clothing, pots and pans. The television, according to the unit owner, was valued at approximately $550 and the chair’s estimated worth was about $200. The value of the other items stolen was not available. Lee said the alleged burglar forced the lock off the storage unit for entry. “Somebody just came in and cleaned her out,” Lee said.

West Point man arrested for dog theft
Special to Daily Times Leader Oktibbeha County Sheriff’s Department investigators in conjunction with Clay County Sheriff’s Department arrested a West Point man after they found two stolen dogs in his home. Investigators arrested 20-yearold James N. Brown III Friday on suspicion of dog theft at his West Point home after a search reportedly led them to two stolen pit bulls. OCSD Commander Brett Watson said the department received a report on Feb. 11 from an Oktibbeha County resident that the dogs were missing. An investigation led to a search warrant of Brown’s home, where investigators made the arrest. Dog theft, according to an OCSD press release, is a felony punishable by up to two years in prison. Investigators booked Brown into Oktibbeha County Jail. He has since been released after posting $20,000 bond. Watson said investigation into the theft is ongoing, but no further arrests are likely in the matter.

Airbus Helicopters production coming to Columbus area
Associated Press COLUMBUS — American Eurocopter has changed its name to Airbus Helicopters Inc. and will begin manufacturing a new commercial helicopter in Columbus. The announcement came Tuesday in Columbus and France. The plant in Columbus has manufactured the Lakota used primarily by the military. Officials say the plant will now produce up to 60 AStar helicopters per year. The AStar is used by the military, various law enforcement and rescue organizations around the country and commercial businesses. "The plant here in Columbus has been in charge of Lakota. Our next step, which has been decided, is the production of the AStar; the very successful, helicopter AStar here in Columbus, Miss. We will produce up to 60 helicopters per year in the plant here and this is a major decision for the group," said Guillaume Faury, Airbus president and CEO. Production on the AStar could begin as early as September. There are currently 280 employees at the Columbus plant. "It's pretty clear that Airbus helicopters, since we arrived, has led the way on much of the economic growth that's taken place. When we came here originally in 2001, there was nothing out at this airport. Today, you look around. There's Severstal, there's PACCAR, Stark Aerospace, Aurora. We led the way. We had some insight on what this place could mean, what it could give us and what it could provide and the quality of the labor force. And I think that's proven itself," said Sam Adcock, general manager of Mississippi Airbus Helicopters.

Facebook nixes posts for gun sales
BY MICHAEL VIRTANEN Associated Press ALBANY, N.Y. — Under pressure from gun control advocates, Facebook agreed Wednesday to delete posts from users selling illegal guns or offering weapons for sale without background checks. A similar policy will apply to Instagram, the company's photosharing network, Facebook said. The policies announced Wednesday will be implemented over the next few weeks. "We will remove reported posts that explicitly indicate a specific attempt to evade or help others evade the law," the company said in a statement Wednesday. "For example, we will remove reported posts where the potential buyer or seller indicates they will not conduct a background check or are willing to sell across state lines without a licensed firearms dealer." New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and gun control groups have been asking Facebook to implement such restrictions. New York requires a federal background check for private gun sales and prohibits sales of some popular firearms, such as the AR15. His office collected evidence that some website users were willing to sell guns without background checks or otherwise violate the sales restrictions of states with tougher gun control laws. Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the group backed by former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and Moms Demand Action have been pressuring Facebook to address the issue. Petitions from Moms Demand Action calling on Facebook to prohibit illegal gun sales had more than 230,000 signatures. "Responsible social media sites know that it is in no one's interest for their sites to become the 21st century black market in dangerous and illegal goods that place our families and communities at risk," Schneiderman said. "I congratulate Facebook and Instagram for taking these simple, common sense steps to protect the safety and security of their users, and encourage other social media sites to follow their lead."

A silhouetted coaxial cable is photographed with the Comcast Corp. logo in the background July 30, 2008, in Philadelphia. Comcast Corp. announced in February 2014 that it is buying Time Warner Cable Inc. American companies are buying up the competition at levels not seen since the dotcom bubble.
US companies spend heavily on 2014 mergers
BY KEN SWEET Associated Press NEW YORK — So far, 2014 is looking like the year of the big deal. Flush with cash and high stock prices, companies are buying up the competition at levels not seen since the dotcom bubble. And with Washington providing more clarity on government spending plans, CEOs are more confident their expansion hopes will pan out — especially if the economy keeps growing. Many of the acquisitions involve American businesses doing the buying or getting bought by overseas rivals. Global deals are up as well. In the last month, Comcast has offered to buy Time Warner Cable for $45 billion. Pharmaceutical giant Actavis is buying Forest Laboratories for $25 billion. And Facebook shocked the technology world by offering $19 billion for tiny WhatsApp. Merger-and-acquisition executives say they have expected a pickup in deal activity for a couple of years, given the bull market and economic recovery. But what prevented the really big transactions was uncertainty about the federal budget, the debt ceiling and the fate of President Obama’s Affordable Care Act. With those issues resolved — at least for now — the way has opened up for bigger, more complex deals. “The deals we have seen in the last couple of weeks are that tipping point that we’ve been waiting for,” said Mark Walsh, who heads up the M&A practice at Deloitte, one of the world’s largest accounting and consulting firms. “There’s so much pent-up demand to do a deal now.” U.S. companies announced $336.13 billion in deals in January and February, according to Dealogic. That’s up 31 percent from $256.21 billion during the same period last year. It’s the largest amount spent during the first two months of the year since 2000. Companies worldwide have announced $569 billion in deals so far this year, the highest level since before the financial crisis. American companies announced 1,550 deals in the first two months of 2014, according to Dealogic. While that is down from the last two years, the average transaction size is more than double what it was a year ago. The high prices reflect companies going on the offensive to boost their earnings. The economy, while growing, still isn’t booming. Since the end of the recession, companies have had to act defensively — protecting profits by cutting costs through layoffs or benefit reductions or by moving manufacturing elsewhere. In an effort to lift earnings and please shareholders, S&P 500 companies have also announced plans for nearly $1 trillion in buybacks over the next several years, and more than four-fifths of them now issue a dividend, the highest proportion since 1998. With their tool box nearly depleted, corporations “are looking for that extra bump” in sales now, Walsh said. A lot of Deloitte’s M&A business has been with companies “looking to expand their product lines or expand geographies.” Buying Time Warner Cable gives Comcast roughly 30 million customers in markets such as New York City. For Facebook, WhatsApp is an opportunity to buy a fast-growing message service that is popular in emerging markets and Europe. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has said he expects WhatsApp, which currently has 400 million users, to grow to 1 billion users in the near future. Ireland-based Actavis gains both a broader variety of drugs to sell and a larger sales presence in the U.S. with its acquisition of Forest Labs.

Another example is Japanese liquor company Suntory Holdings, which in January said it would buy Beam Inc., the maker of Jim Beam and Maker’s Mark, for $14 billion. The deals will “allow us to achieve further global growth,” said Nobutada Saji, president and chairman of Suntory. Getting into the whiskey business is next to impossible, said Thomas Mullarkey, an equity analyst at Morningstar. The popular liquor needs to be aged in barrels for years. While Suntory has a good niche market selling Japanese whiskey to the Japanese, it could never replicate or grow that business in the U.S.

ine. It was a cool, sunny March day with a slight breeze in the air. The game was competitive and exciting. While I’ve eaten a lot of ball game hot dogs, this was my very first time to watch a ball game while seated next to the guy whose company made the hot dog I was enjoying. To be accurate, this was not exactly a hot dog, but a smoked sausage dog with a little relish and a lot of mustard. Seated beside me at the game was state Sen. John Polk, R-Oak Grove, the chairman and retired CEO of Polk’s Meat Products – a Mississippi company employing over 100 workers with 10 brands and a varied product line that includes multiple ham, sausage, salami and souse offerings for retail and institutional customers. The company is Mississippi’s largest smoked meat processor and has developed a national distribution chain. But while Polk is proud of the third-generation family business that his parents founded and that he built before “getting out of the way and letting my daughter grow the company,” Polk talked most about the lessons he’d learned in the state Senate after winning the District 44 seat in the 2011 election. “I didn’t get into politics because I needed a job,” Polk said bluntly, as he says most everything. “I looked around at the shape the state and the country were in and thought ‘maybe I can help make things better’.” Polk ran a campaign in which he talked about “making a payroll every week since 1974” in his business and also said that “my wife accuses me of being a little bit tight with money.” He promised District 44 voters that he’d be just as tight with their money in Jackson. The veteran businessman told me that there had been a learning curve of sorts since arriving at the state Senate. “In my business, change moved a lot faster than it does in the Senate, but I’ve come to appreciate and respect every single member down these,” Polk said. “I still want to change the status quo, but I’ve learned a lot about really listening to where the other senators are coming from.” Polk is still as “picky” about his beliefs and values as he was before he left a highly successful business behind for a job he really didn’t need and he’s still not what one would call an easy compromiser. “Picky” is part of Polk’s longtime advertising slo-
Talking politics, sausage, baseball with Polk
Over a lifetime, I’ve seen a lot of ball games and eaten a lot of hot dogs and talked a lot of politics with friends old and new. As a young sportswriter, I was always thrilled about the fact that my fellow scribes and I got paid to go to the ball games. It seemed a fantastic proposition to me both then and now. But in later years, ball games also offered the opportunity as grand venues in which to engage in another well-loved hobby – talking politics. Only the Neshoba County Fair with horse races as the backdrop from cabin porches has ever seemed a finer place to follow a sporting event and mix in a political gossip. If someone was cooking something tasty on the grill at the same time, all the better.

This weekend, I had a chance to watch a NCAA baseball game between the Mississippi State University Bulldogs and the Eastern Illinois University Panthers in one of the Diamond Classic Tournament games at Dudy Noble Field on the MSU campus. It was as fine an afternoon for baseball as one could imag-
gan. But in a place where folks talk about the legislative process in terms of people “not liking to see how the sausage is made” in subcommittee and committee process, in the avalanche of pressure from lobbyists and special interests, and in the final analysis when some compromises actually prove necessary, Polk seems to shrug his shoulders and say “bring it on.” Seems this ardent University of Southern Mississippi alum is one senator who saw a lot of sausage made before he arrived at the Capitol and isn’t averse to getting elbow deep in it again when necessary in the legislative process.

Obama budget tries to have it both ways
BY DAVID ESPO Associated Press WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is trying to have it both ways with an election-year budget that pays faint lip service to reducing federal deficits while piling on about $1 trillion in tax increases and hundreds of billions in higher spending designed to appeal to economically squeezed voters rather than congressional foes of red ink. Few, if any, of the proposals Obama sent to Congress on Tuesday are likely to be enacted into law before next fall's elections. But that's not the point. The objective is political rather than legislative — a book-length compendium of proposals meant to give Democratic congressional candidates a campaign platform at a time when economic disparity is a major concern for millions trying to dig out from the worst recession in decades. Last year's deficit-cutting proposals "remain on the table," says the budget, referring ever so gingerly to recommended cuts in the growth of Social Security benefits. Asserting the "Republicans' unwillingness to negotiate a balanced long-term deficit reduction deal," it adds the president is now turning toward "the best path to create growth and opportunity for all Americans." Shifting priorities means a budget that never balances at any point in the next decade, lays waste to the spending caps that the White House and Congress agreed to late last year and imposes higher taxes on the wealthy to pay for more spending on programs that benefit those further down the income ladder. Education, job training, child care, transportation, tax breaks for lower-income millions of Americans and more would receive increased funding. The White House refers to this approach — including raising the minimum wage — as "the best path to create growth and opportunity for all Americans." Not surprisingly, Republicans call it something different. Sen. Mitch McConnell, the Senate Republican leader, said Obama "has once again opted for the political stunt — for a budget that's more about firing up the president's base in an election year than about solving the nation's biggest and most persistent long-term challenges." By that, he means the growth of benefit programs and federal deficits. Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said House Republicans will offer an alternative "that balances, promotes opportunity, reforms our tax code, saves our critical safety net programs and places a priority on creating jobs, not more government." Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., the chairman of the House Budget Committee, has already let it be known he is looking at changes to the welfare system. Coincidentally or not, that was the area on which congressional Republicans and former President Bill Clinton ultimately reached a major compromise almost two decades ago. For now, Democrats are no doubt ready to pounce on whatever budget Republicans produce. The theory is that if the GOP indeed comes up with a serious no-tax-increase attack on deficits, the inescapable result must be cuts in social programs. Cue the campaign ads.
Health law provides no guarantees of access to midwives, birthing centers
BY MiCHELLE ANDrEWS Kaiser Health News Insurance coverage for maternity care is required in most individual and small group plans under the federal health law, extending such coverage to plans where it used to be rare. But for women who are interested in services provided by midwives and birthing centers, there are no coverage guarantees, despite the law’s provisions that prohibit insurers from discriminating against licensed medical providers. Most women give birth in hospitals and are attended by obstetricians, but a growing number choose to deliver their babies at birth centers. The centers, typically staffed by midwives, offer women who are at low risk for complications an alternative to traditional hospital labor and delivery, eschewing common medical interventions such as drugs to induce labor and electronic fetal monitors, among other things. In 2012, 53,635 births in the United States took place outside the hospital, or 1.36 percent of all births, according to a study released Tuesday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Twenty-nine percent--15,577 births--occurred at freestanding birth centers. (The rest were primarily home births.) Although still a tiny percentage of the nation’s total, the percentage of births at these centers increased 70 percent between 2004 and 2012, the CDC report found. Under the health law, Medicaid programs are required to cover the services of licensed freestanding birth centers. Coverage of midwifery services had earlier been mandated by federal law. Birth centers and certified nurse-midwives have a good record of safety and patient satisfaction and birth outcomes,” says Cynthia Pellegrini, senior vice president for public policy and government affairs at the March of Dimes. Birth centers are also significantly less expensive than hospitals. The average hospital charge for a vaginal birth without complications was $10,166 in 2010, compared to $2,277 for a birth center, according to data from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality and the American Association of Birth Centers. Some advocates predict that coverage of birth centers in private insurance plans will become routine now that Medicaid, which pays for roughly 50 percent of all births in the United States, has embraced their use. But at this time, coverage for birth centers and for midwives, who work in a variety of settings, including hospitals, is less predictable in private insurance plans. When Stephanie and Sean Taylor learned they were pregnant last July, Stephanie, 30, initially planned to use an ob/gyn and deliver in a hospital near the couple’s home in Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif. But after visiting her doctor a few times she began to have misgivings about the practice’s routine use of ultrasounds, among other things, during her visits. “I wondered, is this really necessary?” says Stephanie. “I’m a really healthy person, and I’m not high risk. I started to question all of this.” The couple’s Blue Shield of California HMO plan, which they have through her job as an executive assistant at a credit union, doesn’t have midwives or birth centers available in the couple’s network. When Stephanie asked her ob/gyn to approve a request for her to use a non-network nurse midwife, he declined, as did Blue Shield. In its denial letter, Blue Shield said her plan allows for the coverage of midwife services. But it noted that since there are none available in her medical group, she was limited to using any participating obstetrician. “If someone can get better, less expensive care, why are their hands tied?” says Stephanie. “People should have the right to choose what’s best for them.” She and her husband decided to pay the $5,500 charge for the midwife and birth center on their own. Their baby is due in April. Blue Shield of California declined to dis-

cuss the details of Stephanie Taylor’s case. In an email response, the company said that generally people insured through an employer-provided HMO “must access medical services from providers within the plan network in order to be covered. While some exceptions exist, going outside the plan network is rarely authorized when providers within the network are able to offer maternity care." Under the health law, maternity and newborn care is one of the 10 essential health benefits that must be covered in individual and small group plans unless they have grandfathered status. But the law doesn’t require that specific types of providers be covered, says Dania Palanker, senior counsel at the National Women’s Law Center. Starting this year health plans are prohibited from discriminating against licensed or certified health care providers who want to participate in their networks. However, the law says, insurers aren’t required to contract with any particular provider. Midwifery and birth center advocates say they’re uncertain how the nondiscrimination provisions will be applied or enforced, and the Department of Labor says it’s not issuing any further guidance. “It leaves us in the dark,” says Jesse Bushman, director of advocacy and government affairs at the American College of NurseMidwives. It can be difficult to learn whether a health plan covers a particular service or provider, particularly on the health insurance exchanges, say advocates. Kim Dau, chair of the policy committee at ACNM’s California affiliate, has been trying to learn the extent to which nurse-midwives are included in plans on the California health insurance marketplace. Sometimes certified nurse-midwives are incorporated into physician directories and hard to find in a search, she says. For consumers, if having access to a midwife or birth center is important, the best and perhaps only remedy is to call the plan directly and ask about coverage.

For Daily Times Leader It is time for the second poster release for the "I Only Tried It Once" campaign. This month’s poster emphasizes the deadly prescription drug epidemic. Nonmedical use of prescription drugs has been identified as a growing public health concern and an increasingly common cause of accidental death. Drug overdoses now kill more people than motor vehicle crashes in the U.S. The death rate from drug overdose in the U.S. has tripled since 1991, and prescription drugs are cited as the primary cause of this increase. Of particular concern are opioid pain relievers such as oxycodone, methadone and hydrocodone. There are now more overdose deaths due to opioid pain relievers than heroin and cocaine combined. In 2011, 232 deaths in Mississippi were classified as resulting from unintentional poisoning by drugs. Among those who died, 53 percent had a prescription to pain killers. Caucasian men and women ages 35-44 represent the largest group of unintentional overdose deaths. However, this is a problem teens are dealing with as well. More than 7 percent of Mississippi teens in grades 6-12 abuse prescription medication, and more

relievers in 2011 were prescribed to them by a doctor. The top five controlled substances prescribed in Mississippi in 2012 were Hydroco-
done, Alprazolam, Tramadol, Oxycodone, and Zolpidem Tartrate; all of which can be highly addictive and/or deadly in large amounts. Thankfully, Mississippi is working to curb this growing epidemic in the state. With the development and implementation of the Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) and the Mississippi “Doctor Shopping” Law, the numbers are slowly but surely on the decline. The Lowndes County community should do its part as well. Community Counseling Services campaign posters will help emphasize the dangerousness of these prescription drugs to our youth and young adults. CCS is asking for residents to help distribute these posters throughout the community, as well as encourage friends and family to monitor their medicine cabinets and safely dispose of unused medications.

MsU hosting C-SPAN TVA announces campground season start ‘American Presidents: Life Portraits’ exhibit
For Daily Times Leader For Daily Times Leader STARKVILLE — A traveling C-SPAN exhibition titled "American Presidents: Life Portraits" is being co-sponsored at Mississippi State by the University Libraries and Ulysses S. Grant Presidential Library. Taking place through April 30 in the third-floor John Grisham Room of Mitchell Memorial Library, the 9 a.m.-4 p.m. weekday exhibition is free and open to all. Covering the lives and contributions of men holding the nation's highest elected office--along with those of their First Ladies--the collection includes paintings, photographs, prints and audio recordings. Oil portraits by artist Chris Fagan, historic front pages from American newspapers announcing presidential election results, and audio recordings of 18 recent chief executives are among items on display. "This exhibit represents a tremendous opportunity for our students, faculty and staff to enjoy a truly significant presentation on the American presidency," said Jerry Gilbert, MSU's provost and executive vice president.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — The Tennessee Valley Authority’s seasonal campgrounds will be opening for the 2014 recreation season on Friday, March 14. “TVA provides recreation opportunities across the Tennessee Valley region as part of our mission,” said Rebecca Tolene, TVA vice president of Natural Resources and Real Property Services. “Regional tourism spending by visitors to TVA-managed recreation facilities and the hundreds of campgrounds and marinas run by commercial and public operators contribute significantly to local economies.” TVA operates more than 80 public recreation areas, including campgrounds, dayuse areas and boat ramps. The six campgrounds operated by TVA alone hosted about 45,000 overnight stays in 2013. TVA-managed campgrounds that will open on March 14 and will remain open until Nov. 17 are: Cherokee Dam - Cherokee Reservoir in Jefferson City, Tenn. Douglas Dam Headwater - Douglas Reservoir near Sevierville, Tenn. Douglas Dam Tailwater - Douglas Reservoir near Sevierville, Tenn. Melton Hill Dam - Melton Hill Reservoir near Oak Ridge, Tenn. Pickwick Dam Tailwater - Pickwick Reservoir near Savannah, Tenn. Watauga Dam Tailwater Watauga Reservoir near Elizabethton, Tenn. The six TVA-operated campgrounds have a total of 355 campsites, all capable of accommodating tents, popup trailers and recreational vehicles. Each campground provides restrooms, potable water, showers, grills, picnic tables, dump stations, and nearby boating and fishing access. Most campsites have electrical service, except for a few tent-only campsites. Campground opening times and additional information including fees and passes are available by calling 800882-5263 or visiting www. tva.com/river/recreation. Cherokee campground, located adjacent to Cherokee Dam in East Tennessee, is the only TVA-operated campground with long-term campsites available. There are a limited number of campsites, and they will be selected by a lottery at the campground at 8 a.m. on March 14. Camping with campfires is a traditional way of enjoying the outdoors. However, imported firewood can intro-
duce insects that kill trees. To prevent the spread of these destructive pests, TVA recommends buying firewood that is cut locally, preferably within the same county where it will be burned. The Tennessee Valley Authority is a corporate agency of the United States that provides electricity for business customers and local power distributors serving 9 million people in parts of seven southeastern states. TVA receives no taxpayer funding, deriving virtually all of its revenues from sales of electricity. In addition to operating and investing its revenues in its electric system, TVA provides flood control, navigation and land management for the Tennessee River system and assists local power companies and state and local governments with economic development and job creation.
ANALYSIS
From page 4
The budget maneuvering is unfolding eight months before the midterm elections, which historically favor the party not in control of the White House, and as the GOP looks confidently to renewing its House majority and hopes to seize control of the Senate, as well. Members of Obama's party must do something to shake up the trend lines. Enter the budget — and the contrast Democrats hope to set up with a Republican alternative. That would be far better, in their view, than an election that is a referendum on the slow recovery from the deepest recession in decades, Obama's general stewardship across five years in office, the health care law and whatever else is contributing to the curdled national mood. The polling is instructive on that point. The most recent soundings of the public mood include a two-week-old CBS-New York Times poll that reported only 32 percent of those polled believe the country is headed in the right direction, compared with 63 percent who said it is in the wrong track. Those findings were consistent with a 28-63 finding by NBC News/ Wall Street Journal poll about a month earlier and a 35-64 result when an AP-GfK survey asked the question in mid-January. Obama's approval ratings have risen somewhat since a fall several months ago that coincided with the catastrophic unveiling of the website for the health care law that goes by his name. The AP-GfK poll showed that 45 percent of those polled approved of his performance and 53 percent disapproved. The CBS/New York Times polls had it 43-51, and an ABC-Washington Post poll returned a finding of 46 percent favorable and 50 percent unfavorable. Anna Greenberg, who served as New York Mayor Bill de Blasio's pollster in his recent winning campaign, said in an interview that the disgruntlement many individuals feel is centered on the view that "the people on the top have recovered in the way people in the middle and at the bottom have not."
Even those who have found a job are likely to be making less or forced to take two jobs instead of one, as before, she said. Obama's budget is an all-out appeal for them to vote Democratic this fall.
ASSAULT
From page 1
Most storage units have some level of surveillance equipment, according to Lee. He added that it is unknown whether S&W had such security measures installed when the incident occurred. West Point Public Works (WPPW) was also the victim of an alleged burglary, as well, according to Lee. At about 5:30 a.m. June 9, 2011, WPPD officers were dispatched to the WPPW headquarters located at 423 Illinois St. in reference to a possible burglary. Lee said a WPPW phoned in the call for police after
noticing a file cabinet in the building had been broken into. According to the employee, the file cabinet reportedly housed cash, among other things. Lee said the employee reported between $300-$400 had been stolen from the filing cabinet. The point of entry, Lee added, was apparently on a side door, which looked to have been pried open. Anyone with information regarding these, or any other crimes, may contact the WPPD at 494-1244 or the Golden Triangle Crime Stoppers at 1-800-530-7151.
KROGER
From page 1
Habel did not comment on whether there was validity to the rumor, citing concerns that her employ under Kroger would possibly be under fire. However, Habel said that were the local business under the spotlight for closure, the district manager would make a trip to West Point to inform Kroger employees. Afterward, she added, the local business would make a public service announcement to inform the general public that closure was in the works. Manager of Marketing and Public Affairs for the Kroger Delta Division Joel Bell confirmed the latter statement. Kroger, Bell said, is a unionized operation. And with that, closure of a Kroger branch is no light matter. “Based on our contract, our agreement is before we make any announcement, we’ll notify our union and the respective location 30 days ahead of time,” Bell said. “Until we notify them, you’re not going to get a whole lot of comments from too many folks.” Bell declined to comment on the validity of the rumor, citing the aforementioned contractual obligation. But rumors of closure, Bell said, are detrimental to the Kroger staff’s morale. “The biggest problem is our own associates that work in those stores, a lot of them have a lot of tenure and they’ve been with Kroger for a long time, and we value our associates a lot,” Bell said. “The morale in the store is never good when rumors like that start.” The respective Kroger branch would not necessarily be in the loop if closure was on the table, either, Bell said. However, he did add that although a store manager might have access to that knowledge, it’s “doubtful” that they would. “Those decisions are made at a different spot in the company in a different area by different people,” Bell said. “Until the decision (of closure) has been made, it’s rare that store management or anyone on a local basis will know ahead of time. “We don’t ever want to close a store,” Bell added. “There’s got to be some really solid business reasons to even think about closing a store. You’ve really got to not be performing in the store the way you’d like to and don’t see at any point in the near future you can turn that around.” Bell said that if Kroger executives feel that a “viable operation” can be churned out from dwindling performance, that’s the route they’ll go down. Bell said a “hard and fast business decision” would be required. “We’ll try to do everything we can to make that a profitable, viable business entity before we close it,” Bell said. “ ... You’re affecting a lot of peoples’ lives (when you close a business), and that’s not taken lightly.” Bell declined to comment whether the West Point branch was in danger of closing.
CIVITANS
From page 1
“Everyone in our Civitan clubs are valuable,” said Longmire. “There is always a purge at the beginning of the year of people who haven’t paid their dues, or simply stopped attending meetings altogether. We lose members that way, but it encourages us to recruit new members who will be enthusiastic about joining a service club. That’s the kind of members we need.” To encourage recruitment, Civitan International is hold-
ing a contest through March 31. Everyone recruiting four new members will have a chance to win a free cruise to Jamaica and the Cayman Islands, Longmire said. April 19 is the North Mississippi district meeting in Booneville, said Longmire. May is the month for new officer elections and then leadership training in August.

FBI joins search for Camden 2-year-old gone since Saturday
Associated Press
CAMDEN — The FBI has joined the search for a missing Madison County toddler, and authorities say they're still not sure what happened to her. Police began looking for 2-year-old Myra Lewis on Saturday afternoon after family members realized she was missing. She may have been gone from her rural Camden home for hours by that time. An Amber alert was issued Sunday, and family members said Monday they believed she was kidnapped. But Madison County Sheriff Randy Tucker said Tuesday at a news conference that authorities aren't sure. "Until we can prove or disprove one or the other, we've still got to consider every possibility. She may have wandered off or been abducted, we just don't know what (happened) at this point," he said. Tucker said authorities have searched 4 square miles around the family home, using dogs, aircraft and more than 300 people. "The Sheriff's Department and multiple agencies, including the FBI and Mississippi Highway Patrol. you name it, they've all been here for us," Tucker said. "We have not given up." The sheriff urges people to contact authorities with tips "no matter how insignificant." Since Lewis disappeared, temperatures overnight have dropped into the 20s, and have hovered in the 30s and low 40s during the day. "We fully expect a positive outcome," Tucker said. "We need to get Myra home, and again we want to stress to everyone we need your help, the family needs your help and we appreciate your calls." On Tuesday, FBI agents carried brown paper bags of evidence out of the family's home.

A reveler calls to the crowd during the Krewe of Diamonds Mardi Gras Parade Tuesday in Bay St. Louis. Few people came out to watch the parade because of cold and rainy weather. Four parades rolled in South Mississippi on Fat Tuesday, the final day of the Carnival season.
Rain doesn’t dampen Fat Tuesday
Associated Press BILOXI — Skies were gray, temperatures were chilly, and there was some rain. But it was still Mardi Gras, with thousands flocking to parades, capping off the Carnival season along Mississippi's coast. Mardi Gras lovers bundled up and set up tents for shelter, not allowing cold weather and drizzle to stop the downtown Biloxi parade. "Everyone knew the rain was coming," said Bill Holmes, parade captain for the Gulf Coast Carnival Association, the region's oldest parading society. "They've covered up their floats. They've covered up their speaker systems, and they're all here. We're probably only missing about four or five floats out of 120." What kept the spirits of members from being dampened by the weather? "If you've ever ridden through the parade and seen the people's faces, you would understand what's so wonderful about it," said Nancy Rogers, an organizer. Danielle Kuper of Alaska makes her way south every year for Mardi Gras, and chose to celebrate Fat Tuesday on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. "This is my first Mardi Gras in the rain," she said of her fifth year celebrating Carnival season. "But it's still so fun." Kuper said she and seven others made the trek from Alaska to visit New Orleans and South Mississippi, and the weather couldn't stop them.

Not everyone got to partake in the fun, though. The 7,000 students in the Pascagoula school district had to attend class Tuesday to make up time lost during a February ice storm. Students wore their favorite Mardi Gras beads to class at Jackson Elementary School to learn reading, writing and arithmetic. Teacher Latoya Fortenberry was pleased all of her second graders showed up for class. "Absolutely, and it is a lot warmer in my classroom than it is outside, so I think they are having fun," Fortenberry said. Mardi Gras wasn't totally forgotten about at Jackson Elementary. The fourth graders hosted an afternoon parade after they finished their school work.
Board names Rankins as Alcorn State president State lawmakers honor Freedom Summer veterans
BY JEFF AMY Associated Press JACKSON — Alfred Rankins Jr. was named the next president of Alcorn State University Tuesday by the Mississippi College Board, which chose an insider following an abbreviated search that became necessary after its former president resigned over a purchasing scandal. The only person interviewed for the job, replaces M. Christopher Brown II, who stepped down in December as the board moved to suspend him during an investigation. Meeting in Lorman, board members unanimously voted for their 42-year-old deputy commissioner of academic affairs to take the reins at the 4,000-student university. "I'm just ready to come back home and get to work," said Rankins, a Greenville native who earned his undergraduate degree from Alcorn. Rankins served for a year as interim president of Mississippi Valley State University. Board members said they believe Rankins proved he could lead during that time. "After five years of working with him, I know he loves this university and he loves this state," said Higher Education Chancellor Hank Bounds. Rankins said he wasn't sure when he would start, but didn't foresee a "long delay." Records reviewed by The Associated Press show Alcorn spent almost $89,000 on furniture and renovations at the president's house without seeking bids as required under state law. Documents also show Alcorn paid $85,000 in fees to a concert production company associated with a Brown aide, possibly violating state ethics laws. And an auditor says the school spent more than $67,000 in bond money on projects not allowed in the lending agreement. Norris Edney has been serving as acting president since Brown resigned. Usually, the board appoints a search committee, hires a search firm to look for a new president and interviews multiple candidates, a process that takes months. However, last year, the board changed the rules governing presidential choices to allow it to speed up the process. No search firm was hired for Alcornam, and the board search committee named Jan. 24 chose Rankins barely a month later. Rankins met Thursday with faculty, staff, students and alumni on both the Natchez and Alcorn campuses. The school has a third branch campus in Vicksburg. "My ultimate vision for Alcorn is for Alcorn State to be the model university, not in BY EMILY WAGSTER PETTUS Associated Press

If confirmed, Rankins will become the next leader of the 4,000-student university. the state of Mississippi, but nationally," he said repeatedly. To students, he pledged an effort to make the university work smoothly for them. "I know what it is like to be a student at Alcorn. I know the good, I know the bad. I want you to know that if I am president, I will listen to the concerns of the students." Rankins has said wants to wait for the state auditor and Ethics Commission to finish their investigations before proposing changes. But he repeatedly made clear that he didn't want to repeat Brown's mistakes. "We can't do anything about the past, but we can make sure past mistakes don't happen again," he said. "I know how to get things done and I can do things the right way." A number of College Board members were unable to attend Tuesday's session in Lorman after a plane that was supposed to carry them was unable to be de-iced, Bounds said.
JACKSON — Mississippi lawmakers are honoring civil rights activists as the 50th anniversary of Freedom Summer approaches. Hundreds of college students from across the nation converged on the state in 1964 to help local people challenge what was then a strictly segregated society. They registered black voters, established schools and did other projects to help people who were struggling with generations of poverty and racial oppression. Some of the volunteers were threatened or beaten. Three of them — Michael Schwerner, James Chaney and Andrew Goodman — were killed in what became known as the "Mississippi Burning" case. Large-scale integration of Mississippi public schools started in 1970. While civil-rights activists say they still see challenges such as a voter-identification law that takes effect this year, Mississippi has seen a dramatic increase in black voter participation since passage of the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965. The state now has a large number of black elected officials, including mayors, sheriffs and legislators. Lawmakers this week adopted a resolution commending Freedom Summer participants, who are holding events June 25-29 to mark the anniversary. "Life got better in Mississippi, not just for African-Americans but for everybody," Sen. John Horhn, D-Jackson, said Wednesday as several Freedom Summer participants were honored in the Senate. Senators a standing ovation to the group, including Hollis Watkins, a Mississippi native who was among the Freedom Summer leaders. "It's truly an honor for me to come before you today in this house, which is a house that I was not welcome to several years back," Watkins told senators. "But to come and to see resolution and know this joy, it shows that, as Sen. Horhn said, we've come a long way but we still have a long way to go."

Hebron defeats Calhoun
DTL staff
PHEBA — Behind a positive performance on the mound, Hebron Christian Eagles (20; 1-0 District 3-A) grabbed a 9-5 decision over the Calhoun Cougars in a MAIS District 3-A baseball game at Hebron Christian School. The Eagles outhit the Cougars (11-1) and kept the base path busy, scoring at least one run during five of the seven innings of play. Hebron’s pitching staff held Calhoun to only one hit in seven innings. “I guess 11 hits on a cold, damp night is OK this early in the season — most were real good shots,” Hebron Coach Cass Tapley said. “We still had a few too many at bats that just weren’t good. It is early and our hitting will get better.” Sophomore Channing Tapley and junior Drew Myatt combined for five innings of hitless baseball to hold Calhoun to only three runs. Payton Griffin closed the game out with two innings of work, giving the Cougars two runs and their lone hit. “Our pitchers didn’t find the plate as well as in the first game, but the weather may have had a little to do with that,” Tapley said. The Eagle pitching staff has only allowed one hit in the first 12 innings of competition. Hebron opened the season with an 18-0 win over Starkville Christian in five innings last Thursday. The Eagles play game two against Starkville at 4 p.m. today at Hebron Christian in Pheba.

Local U10 soccer team wins division
For Daily Times Leader The West Point Soccer Club’s U10 boys team won its division at the Tupelo March Madness Tournament last weekend by outscoring opponents 23-6 over the span of four games. However, after the tournament, the boys on the team talked about the one goal that put them through to the championship game. “The Sunday morning game against Oxford was a real test,” Coach Thomas Easterling said. “It was back and forth the whole time, and we had to beat or tie them to advance to the championship.” Oxford scored first on a chip shot over Jack Ketchum. West Point’s Jack Easterling scored twice on corner kicks to give West Point a 2-1 halftime lead. After that, West Point missed on several opportunities. “It was almost like the goal had a force field around it,” Thomas Easterling said. “We had some great chances that we just couldn’t tap in.” Unfortunately for West Point, Oxford kept scoring. Oxford scored with five minutes to play to go up by a goal. At that point, West Point coaches directed all their players but the keeper and a sweeper to focus on offense. Without a goal, their run in the tournament would be over. Although West Point came close twice, they could not get the ball into the back of the net. Then, with less than a minute left, an Oxford defender committed a handball just a few yards from the middle of the field. Alex Harper lofted the ball in front of the goal, where it shimmied through the Oxford defense before it found the right foot of Collins Trolio, who blasted it into the back of the net. “Before the play, our goalie

I kicked it and it went in. We all went crazy.” “Collins was in the best spot,” Harper said. “I tried my best to get the ball to him.” The tournament final against Tupelo lacked the suspense of the previous game. West Point scored soon after the opening whistle when Jack Easterling worked the ball up the right side of the field, held it up to wait for a teammate to make a run, and made a beautiful pass to Trolio, who finished with poise. “Both of Tupelo’s defenders came at me,” Easterling said. “Once I got the pass through, I knew Collins would score it.” The score was one of several assists Easterling made during the weekend. He also scored five times over the course of the tournament. Although West Point didn’t score again until the second half, once it did, the floodgates opened. Easterling tallied the game’s final goal on a penalty kick with under a minute to go. Trolio, Antonio Facella, and Wells Williams scored before that. Williams said that the team’s biggest advantage was no mystery. “Passing skills gave us an edge,” he said. The coaches agreed. Wing players John Ross Craven, Connor Freeman, Ben Harrell, and Hamp Judson made great decisions regarding when the push the ball to the outside of the field, and when to push it up.
According to Coach Dave Ketchum, one of the best things about the U10 team is that the boys aren’t just turning into better soccer players — they’re becoming better people, too. Because tournaments often require Sunday games, the players decided to do a Fellowship of Christian Athletes style devotional on Sundays. One player, Hamp Judson, said that Sunday’s lesson from 1 Corinthians was one of his favorite moments from the weekend. The coaches also stress good sportsmanship, and have made sure that every player on the team gets quality minutes during every game. “West Point has come such a long way since we began playing spring soccer four years ago,” Thomas Easterling said. “There have been lean years, but the town has really supported the team. West Point has great athletes, and they can hang with anybody. We proved that this weekend by winning games against teams from Oxford, Tupelo, and Collierville, Tennessee.” For more information about the West Point Soccer Club, go to the club's Facebook page or call the Parks and Rec Department at 4943214.

Starkville fast pitch waits late to defeat West Point
DTL staff
The total, combined runs scored by the Starkville Lady Jackets and West Point Lady Wave matched the cold, wintery temperatures.
One team was warm with the feeling of victory. While the other was left cold by a loss in this highly contested Golden
Triangle Area rivalry.
The Lady Jackets rallied 10 runs in the final three innings to surpass the Lady Wave, 18-15, in a MHSAA non-
district fast-pitch softball game Tuesday at West Point High School. West Point pushed across one run in
the final three innings.
The Lady Jackets trailed after five innings, 14-8, but answered at the plate with their final nine outs as the Lady Wave struggled in the field with multiple errors and walks. Starkville scored four runs in the fifth inning and added six more in the seventh inning, overtaking West Point for a four-run advantage before the bottom of the seventh, 18-14. Starkville opened with one run in the first inning, but West Point immediately answered with sophomore Qiayon Bailey’s two-RBI double. Bailey later scored on Tytianna Anderson’s single for a 3-1 lead. The Lady Jackets answered with three runs, but again West Point added three
more to remain ahead after two complete
innings, 6-4. The Lady Wave expanded their lead to four points with two runs on Ta’China Starks and Tori Boatner singles in the bottom of the third inning, 8-4. Starkville finally answered the four straight Lady Wave runs in the top of the fourth with four runs on one hit, tying the game. The Lady Jackets’ gametying half sparked West Point into a six-run fourth, which included three singles, 14-8. West Point takes on the Caledonia Lady Confederates at 6:30 p.m. today at West Point High School’s fast-pitch softball diamond.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You could be discouraged by someone else’s resentment of you. Your frustration could come to the surface. Consider how to express your feelings without judging the other party. Postpone a friendly chat until tomorrow, if possible. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You’ll dominate to an unusual extent, partially because someone refuses to discuss the issue at hand. Communication easily could get messed up and cause a misunderstanding. Make your choices your own. Let others know where you are coming from. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Pretend that you are not in the room. Just listen and take in information. The results will be far better for you, as well as for others. Keep your opinions to yourself, as they could change rapidly in the next few days. CANCER (June 21-July 22) You naturally will shine in a meeting. On some level, you’ll like what you hear or see, even if a disagreement dominates the moment. You might want to see how you can move past this problem -- perhaps not today, but in the near future. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You could be in the midst of some tension that you would like to forget about. Consider eliminating this pressure, and try to resolve the problem soon. Use the late afternoon for meetings and other interpersonal matters. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) If no one is talking or one party is closed down, resolving a misunderstanding could be close to impossible. If you are the party who is closed down, it would better to talk. If it’s the other person, keep reaching out. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You might want to come to an understanding with a loved one before everyone has gotten too involved with a particular issue. Refuse to get stuck. A special friend will try to lighten your mood. Before you know it, you could be laughing. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Your moods could have a bigger impact than you might realize. Be more forthright if you want a problem resolved. You could be vested in this present mental stance as well. Let a partner air out his or her ideas without becoming judgmental. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Go with the moment, and know what you desire. You might have kept a lot of your thoughts to yourself, despite your gregarious personality. Others could be stunned by how sensitive you can be. Stay on top of calls and emails. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Upon hearing certain conversations, your mind could jump to better ideas and new ways of handling a personal matter. Follow through on these thoughts more often. Do not feed into a communication issue. Stay open. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You might opt to stay close to home. You could find others in a strange mood, which will make it difficult to deal with them. A conversation with someone at a distance might make you feel uneasy. Try not to let this get to you.

HOUSE APPROVES BILL TO RESTORE DEATH PENALTY FOR SOME CRIMES
A measure to reinstate the death penalty as punishment for certain crimes won overwhelming approval Tuesday in the Mississippi House after insertion of amendments to include multiple slayings and the murder of elected officials. The bill was a revised version of a measure passed several weeks ago by the Senate, and now must return to the upper chamber for concurrence in House changes. It was guided to 105-10 passage by Reps. Ed Perry of Oxford and Marby Penton of Ocean Springs. Perry recalled that a proposal to restore the death penalty was vetoed by Gov. Bill Waller following the 1973 legislative session. But he said Waller was “favorable” to the latest proposal. Rep. Stone Barefield of Hattiesburg gained adoption of a floor amendment, however, which sponsors of the legislation warned may bring about another veto. The amendment would require that any person convicted of crimes which carry a maximum sentence of life imprisonment to serve at least 20 years of one-half of the sentence, whichever is less. Barefield said existing laws provide that a person sentenced to life may become eligible for parole in 10 years. Perry noted that the 1973 legislation contained sections dealing with parole eligibility and this was one of the reasons for the governor’s veto. Penton predicted another veto if the amendment stays in the new bill. “I don’t believe the governor’s got the courage to veto this bill again,” replied Barefield. “The people of this state are up in arms of that veto last year.” Originally, the measure provided a mandatory death penalty for anyone convicted of aircraft piracy, rape of a child of 12 and under, and certain types of murder spelled out in the legislation. These included: • Killing of a peace officer or fireman while acting in their official capacity; • Murder by use of a bomb or explosive device • Murder of anyone who has been offered or received anything of value for the killing; • Murder when done by any person engaged in the commission of the crime of rape, burglary, kidnapping, arson or robbery.

Here’s How It Works:
To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Take an overview. Conversations will be about the story, not the real issues below the surface. A close associate, friend or loved one could be more than difficult. At present, he or she might seem more fiery than you have witnessed in a while.

Ukraine premier: Crimea will remain in Ukraine
BY MARIA DANILOVA Associated Press
KIEV, Ukraine — In his first interview since taking office, Ukraine's new prime minister vigorously defended the legality of his government against attacks coming from Russia, but said Wednesday that Ukraine would be willing to consider granting more autonomy to the Crimea region to assuage the concerns of the province's pro-Russian population. Speaking to The Associated Press, Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk denied reports that Ukraine is seeking military assistance from the United States. Since last weekend, Russian troops have taken control of much of the Crimea, a peninsula in the Black Sea where Russian speakers are in the majority. Yatsenyuk, who took office last week, blamed Russian President Vladimir Putin for causing one of the sharpest international crises in Europe since the end of the Cold War — and expressed fears about further possible Russian incursions. Asked by AP if he was afraid that Russia might send troops to occupy other Russian-speaking areas of Ukraine, Yatsenyuk said: "Let me put it bluntly: yes, it's still a concern and Russia is to realize its responsibility and Russia is to stick to its international obligation, to stop the invasion. "Mr. President (Putin), stop this mess," said Yatsenyuk. The prime minister, approved by parliament on Feb. 27, also denied a report that cashstrapped Ukraine was negotiating with the United States for deployment of U.S. missile defenses in exchange for financial help. "This is not true," Yatsenyuk told the AP. "We have no talks with the government of the United States of America on any kind of deployment of — Associated Press any military forces.

Carnival, passengers in court over disabled ship Doctors hoping for
BY CURT ANDERSON Associated Press MIAMI — About three dozen passengers who sailed on the ill-fated Carnival Triumph cruise ship that drifted at sea for days are hoping to collect thousands of dollars apiece as a result of lingering medical and mental problems they say were caused by their nightmarish experience. Their lawsuit, the first to go to trial since the February 2013 cruise, is being vigorously defended by Miami-based Carnival Corp., which contends the passengers cannot show such problems as kidney stones, posttraumatic stress disorder and scratchy throats are linked to unsanitary conditions or the fire that disabled the engine. At stake is perhaps millions of dollars, as well as the industry's restrictive policy — printed on each ticket — that governs the kinds of lawsuits passengers can file. Passenger Debra Oubre, of Friendswood, Texas, who said she has worked in cruise line shore operations and has enjoyed a dozen cruises, said she joined the suit to hold someone accountable. "Many of us, if not all of us, were physically or emotionally hurt," she said. "I just want the truth to be told." Again and again during the three-week trial, Triumph passengers have told their story to Senior U.S. District Judge Donald Graham, who is hearing the case without a jury. Testimony is expected to wrap up this week, and Graham could decide whether the passengers deserve any damages at any time. Some Triumph passengers testified on Carnival's behalf Wednesday, including James Ede, of Houston, who said the crew kept them well-informed and provided plenty of water. "I got almost a little tired of people saying, 'How can I help you?'" Ede said of the crew. According to Carnival, at least nine othBY MARILYNN MARCHIONE Associated Press
cure in second baby born with HIV
A second baby born with the AIDS virus may have had her infection put into remission and possibly cured by very early treatment — in this instance, four hours after birth. Doctors revealed the case Wednesday at an AIDS conference in Boston. The girl was born in suburban Los Angeles last April, a month after researchers announced the first case from Mississippi. That case was a medical first that led doctors worldwide to rethink how fast and hard to treat infants born with HIV. The California doctors followed that example. The Mississippi baby is now 3 1/2 and seems HIV-free despite no treatment for about two years. The Los Angeles baby is still getting AIDS medicines, so the status of her infection is not as clear. A host of sophisticated tests at multiple times suggest the LA baby has completely cleared the virus, said Dr. Deborah Persaud, a Johns Hopkins University physician who led the testing. The baby's signs are different from what doctors see in patients whose infections are merely suppressed by successful treatment, she said.

Passengers sit with makeshift tents on the the deck of the Carnival Triumph cruise ship at sea Feb. 10, 2013, in the Gulf of Mexico. About three dozen passengers aboard the illfated cruise liner have filed a lawsuit in Miami hoping to collect thousands of dollars as a result of lingering medical and mental issues they claim were caused by their nightmarish experience. er Triumph lawsuits are pending in South Florida federal court, including a proposed class-action that seeks to represent all of the roughly 3,000 passengers aboard the ship. Attorneys involved in the current trial say its outcome could affect what happens in these other cases, although the legal claims are somewhat different. Carnival tickets require lawsuits against the world's largest cruise line to be filed only in South Florida federal court. The tickets also state that passengers agree they can't bring a class-action lawsuit, but some lawyers are challenging that based on negligence claims. The 893-foot Triumph left Galveston, Texas on Feb. 7, 2013, for a four-day cruise highlighted by a stop in Cozumel, Mexico. After departing Cozumel, a fire broke out at about 5 a.m. in the ship's engine room Feb. 10. It left the ship without engine power and most of its electricity, forcing passengers to endure human waste running down hallways, limited water supplies, noxious odors and extreme heat. After about five days in the Gulf of Mexico, the ship was finally towed to Mobile, Ala., and the weary, bedraggled passengers disembarked Feb. 14. Carnival sought to make amends by offering each passenger a $500 check, a voucher for a future cruise, refunds of most on-board expenses and reimbursement for transportation, parking and so forth.
"We don't know if the baby is in remission ... but it looks like that," said Dr. Yvonne Bryson, an infectious disease specialist at Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA who consulted on the girl's care. Doctors are cautious about suggesting she has been cured, "but that's obviously our hope," Bryson said. Most HIV-infected moms in the U.S. get AIDS medicines during pregnancy, which greatly cuts the chances they will pass the virus to their babies. The Mississippi baby's mom received no prenatal care and her HIV was discovered during labor. So doctors knew that infant was at high risk and started her on treatment 30 hours after birth, even before tests could determine whether she was infected. The LA baby was born at Miller Children's Hospital Long Beach, and "we knew this mother from a previous pregnancy" and that she was not taking her HIV medicines, said Dr. Audra Deveikis, a pediatric infectious disease specialist at the hospital. The mom was given AIDS drugs during labor to try to prevent transmission of the virus, and Deveikis started the baby on them a few hours after birth. Tests later confirmed she had been infected, but does not appear to be now, nearly a year later.
