Nader had courted Reform Party leaders since March. Six other lesser-known candidates sought the party's nod. The leading contender, Tylertown businessman Ted Weill, threw his support to Nader on Monday. Nader spokesman Kevin Zeese said the candidate welcomes the party's support but plans to continue running as an independent. He said Nader would decide on a case-by-case basis whether to accept the Reform Party's ballot lines in each state, or try to gain ballot access through other means. In an interview with Associat ed Press Radio, Nader said he is counting on Reform Party members to help him get on the ballot in other states. "We'll get a greater get-out-the-vote drive there are tens of thousands of Reform Party people in California alone," he said. Nader won the Reform Party endorsement shortly after midnight Tuesday, when more than two-thirds of its national and executive committee members who participated in the vote chose the consumer advocate, said party chairman Shawn O'Hara, who called Nader "a man of peace." The prospect of Nader appearing on Florida's ballot is certain to incense many Democrats, who blame Nader for pulling votes from Democrat AI Gore in 2000. Gore lost Florida and the presidency to Republican George W. Bush by fewer than 600 votes, while Nader garnered nearly 100,000 votes there as the Green Party's nominee. Other states in which the Reform Party has already secured ballot access for its nominee are Colorado, Kansas, Mississippi, Montana and South Carolina. The Reform Party said it also had ballot access in Wisconsin, but Kevin Kennedy, executive director for the state's elections board, said the party has not yet qualified for the 2004 presidential race. Nader is not yet on the ballot in any state. Democrats have almost universally urged Nader not to run again, saying his presence will only help President Bush win reelection. "Our position on Ralph Nader has not changed," Democratic National Committee spokesman Jano Cabrera said. "Unless Ralph Nader wants his legacy to be that of simply a political spoiler, our hope is that between now and November, he will urge his supporters to vote for and work for the election of John Kerry." David Wade, a spokesman for Kerry, praised Nader's accomplishments but urged his support- Court to hear Tylertown man's malpractice suit JACKSON (AP) The dismissal of Edward Keszenheimer's legal malpractice lawsuit filed against his attorney but dismissed by a Hinds County judge will be considered by the Mississippi Court of Appeals. The case is among dozens the Appeals Court will consider this term using written briefs submitted by attorneys rather than hearing oral arguments.

Entergy turns on cable beneath Mississippi River NEW ORLEANS (AP) Entergy Corp. has activated high-voltage power lines buried under the Mississippi River to replace one that forced a regular cruise ship to move for several months to Gulf-port. The new lines, buried 100 feet below the river, went into service recently, Entergy announced Tuesday. Entergy said they are housed in duct systems nearly 4.000 feet long and weighing more than 400 tons. gal malpractice after he partially won his case. Circuit Judge Swan Yerger tossed out the suit in 2002 and assessed Keszenheimer court costs. Yerger said Keszenheimer failed to prove his claim for legal malpractice against attorneys. USAA Life Insurance Co. had sued Keszenheimer over a disability claim. The company sought to recoup the $133,200 the company had paid over three years in disability claims to Keszen heimer. Keszenheimer counter i sued. A federal court jury ruled in 2001 that Keszenheimer was 70 percent disabled during the three-year period. It ordered him to reimburse 30 percent to the insurance company, or $39,960. The jury also said Keszenheimer, at the time of its verdict, was only 20 percent disabled. Keszenheimer alleged his attorneys didn't do their job and they padded their bill so he sued them. f? Beacham Memorial Hospital is sponsoring a Healt " J.

"There's a sense of urgency among Americans about the power of their vote and Floridians who were cheated in 2000 know that best," Wade said. "We're confident that in the end, we believe Americans will elect John Kerry because he has the vision, leadership and judgment to put America back on track. " Nader has struggled to win ballot access in some early states, such as Texas, where a deadline passed Monday without him collecting enough signatures to appear on the ballot. Nader filed a federal lawsuit Monday challenging the signature requirement in Texas. Nader also missed an early opportunity to get on Oregon's ballot, although he has time to try again. The Reform Party claims more than 1 million active members, but has been plagued by infighting and lost membership since it was founded by billionaire Ross Perot in 1992.
