Inmate died of multidrug overdose BY STEVE BEAVERS email@example.com
An autospy report has revealed an inmate on a weekend pass died from a multi-drug overdose. William “Danny” Whitaker, 56, was found dead at his mother’s home on Oct. 26 while on pass from jail. Whitaker, a Mississippi Department of Corrections inmate
County Sheriff Charles Rinehart. Rinehart was admonished by the commissioner for granting Whitaker and five other inmates leave. Rinehart’s repeated violations of the Offender Leave Program forced Epps to discontinue housing state inmates at the jail in November. The MDOC resumed sending inmates to the correctional facility on Dec. 17 after Epps
being housed at the Alcorn County Regional Correctional Facility, was found to have several drugs in his body, according to Alcorn County Coroner Jay Jones. Whitaker was serving a jail sentence for robbery, burglary and aggravated assault and was not eligible for leave, according to MDOC Commissioner Christopher Epps in a letter to Alcorn
received a detailed plan by the sheriff stating unauthorized passes were discontinued. On Dec. 2, the Alcorn County Board of Supervisors approved a two-year agreement with Mississippi Correctional Management, Inc. to operate, manage and maintain the facility. The board’s action resulted in Epps deciding to resume sending inmates to the facility.
Rinehart previously told the Daily Corinthian that Whitaker and the others were given passes because they were not considered dangerous. Whitaker was given a pass to spend time with his sick mother when he died, according to the sheriff. “If I felt there was any danger, I wouldn’t have done it,” said Rinehart on Nov. 13 in reaction to Epps’ letter.

sentences include prison time
BY STEVE BEAVERS firstname.lastname@example.org
A New Year’s Day wreck sent a pair of women to the hospital. Two black females were transported to Magnolia Regional Health Center following a two-car crash at the corner of Crater and Dunlap around 3:10 p.m. Wednesday. According to a witness at the scene, the driver of a blue Ford Mustang was traveling west on Dunlap when it ran a stop sign and hit a black Grand Prix which was headed south on Crater Street. The Grand Prix suffered heavy damage to its front as parts of the vehicle and glass littered the street. Cause of the crash is being investigated by the Corinth Staff photo by Steve Beavers Police Department. Two women were transported via ambulance following a two-car crash on New Year’s Day.

A judge handed down two more sentences of jail time for individuals involved in what prosecutors describe as a north Mississippi drug trafficking operation. In a sentencing hearing Dec. 17 for Qavis Deron Green of Corinth, U.S. District Court Judge Sharion Aycock sentenced him to five years and 10 months in custody of the U.S. Bureau of Prisons on an indictment for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine and marijuana, according to court records. He must also serve three years probation upon release. The judge also recommends Green participate in the Residential Drug Abuse Treatment Program and GED Program. On the same date, Aycock also sentenced Brandon Demario Wells, whose address at the time of indictment was given as Decatur, Ill. On an indictment for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine and marijuana, Aycock sentenced Wells to two years in custody followed by three years probation. The two were among a group of 10 indicted in December 2012 for allegedly arranging the purchase and shipment of drugs into the region between October 2011 and May 2012. Several more await sentencing. Green was 25 at the time of indictment, and Wells was 23.
Air Evac flight nurse likes to inspire others BY KIMBERLY SHELTON firstname.lastname@example.org
Bloody and exhausted, Gail Hudson stumbled through the front door of the medi-vac trailer. She had just returned from cleaning and disinfecting the team helicopter. The roof of the air craft had been splattered crimson as the 46-yearold flight nurse and her fellow teammates worked diligently to save the life of their patient. For many, this ghastly scene would turn their stomachs, but for Hudson it’s just another day on the job. The veteran nurse is not squeamish when it comes to carnage. Over the years, she has seen it all. An angel to her patients, the Chicago born RN, CEN has treated close to 2,300 souls since she arrived at the Corinth base. This April will mark her 13th year as a member of the Air Evac Life-team. After completing the academy, Hudson herself went under the knife for a hysterectomy on Dec. 28, 2000. “I was hired to work at the base in Cullman, Ala.,” said Hudson. “I went home New Year’s Eve, but woke up New Year’s Day in pain.” On Jan. 2, 2001, the nurse was back in the hospital and her family was called in to break the news. Septic shock had set in and infection was spreading rapidly through her body. “They told my family I was going to die,” she explained with a shudder. “Something dirty was used during my ini-

Eleven months later, she was back to work at the emergency room in Muscle Shoals, Ala. Hudson joined the Air Evac Life-team in April 2002. “Air Evac was just great. The battle made it that much
sweeter when I finally did it,” proclaimed Hudson. Reared in Iuka, she has known many of the people she’s treated. Hudson has been married to her husband Larry for 27 years. The couple have two children, Beth, 23 and Jon, 19. “Every time we get a call from Iuka, I worry for kids,” said the mother of two. She is a graduate of Northeast Mississippi Community College, where she earned her

Today is Thursday, Jan. 2, the second day of 2014. There are 363 days left in the year. Â
Todayâ€™s Highlights in History: On Jan. 2, 1974, President Richard Nixon signed legislation requiring states to limit highway speeds to 55 miles an hour as a way of conserving gasoline in the face of an OPEC oil embargo. (The 55 mph limit was effectively phased out in 1987; federal speed limits were abolished in 1995.) â€œSinging cowboyâ€? star Tex Ritter died in Nashville at age 68. Â

A high-tech tool school district leaders say will revolutionize education in Booneville will soon be in the hands of students. The Booneville School District will begin distributing Chromebook notebook computers to students in grades 9-12 with the start of the new semester in January. The computers will eventually be rolled out to all students in the district as part of a $1.2 million state-funded pilot program looking at ways digital devices can enhance education. The project was funded by the Mississippi legislature during the last legislative session and requires no district funds. Superintendent Todd English said the computers will be issued to high school students in a meeting set for 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 7 in the high school commons. The superintendent is excited about the possibilities for the program and said harnessing technology to improve learning is vital in the 21st century. â€œOur kids are growing up in a technological world and if we donâ€™t embrace that new world weâ€™re doing all our students an injustice,â€? he said. The devices will come preloaded with all of the studentsâ€™ textbooks in e-book format along with the Chrome web browser which will give them access to
County adds 3 markers at Civil War sites Associated Press
COLUMBIA, Tenn. â€” A central Tennessee County is adding historical markers at a trio of Civil War sites. Maury Countyâ€™s Convention and Visitors Bureau wants new markers up by the spring at a gun and knife fight, a home and a soldierâ€™s grave. Bureau Executive Director Brenda Pierce told The Daily Herald the markers give Civil War buffs another reason to visit. The new markers commemorate the old Nelson Hotel, the Elm Springs home the grave of author Sam Watkins at the Zion Cemetery. Maury County Archives Director Bob Duncan is working on the Nelson Hotel signâ€™s description. A large part of the former hotelâ€™s significance lies in what is known as â€œThe â€œForrest-Gould Affair.â€? The old hotel is where Confederate Lt. Andrew Wills Gould died after a confrontation with Confederate Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest in summer 1863. A downtown Columbia Masonic Hall was the setting where Gould faced Forest, challenging the general about being blamed for losing some artillery pieces. â€œGould confronted Forrest in the hall,â€? Duncan said. â€œNow, confronting Forrest took nerves of steel to start with.â€? An argument ensued, and Gould shot Forrest in his abdomen. Forrest retaliated and stabbed Gould in his side. The young lieutenant was eventually taken to the Nelson Hotel for medical treatment. Forrest recovered, but Gould died from infection. Union troops nearly burned down Elm Springs, the International Headquarters of The Sons of Confederate Veterans in Columbia.
the Internet along with programs for word processing and other functions and Googleâ€™s Drive software which will allow documents to be saved, collaborated on, shared and submitted to teachers. English noted the e-books and the Google software will be available at all times on the devices, even when not connected to the Internet so students without Internet access at home will still be able to complete their assignments. Students will also be given a list of local places where free wireless Internet is available if they donâ€™t have home access. Januaryâ€™s rollout is the first phase of the project which will put the devices in the hands of all students in grades 2-12. Students in kindergarten and first grade will be issued iPad mini tablet computers which will be kept at the school. English said the use of e-books to replace traditional textbooks is both cost effective and a boost to learning. The average reading book used in the district costs $115 compared to $10 per student per year for an e-book version, he explained. The electronic versions can also be updated much more often, providing students with latest information and tools for learning. The superintendent said traditional text books provide a fixed source of knowledge that sim-
ply canâ€™t keep up with the rapid changes happening in the world. He said this is especially true in areas such as social studies and science. Access to Internet-based resources will also allow students and teachers to go beyond whatâ€™s contained in the books to take advantage of an entire world of resources, said English. He said the possibilities of the new devices are endless and heâ€™s excited to see how teachers will integrate them into the classroom and the creative ways theyâ€™ll be used. He noted the rollout of the devices is just the start of the program and he expects it to grow and be a powerful tool for learning in the district that will become more integrated into everything students do in the classroom in the coming years. English said Booneville is blessed to be part of the pilot program and while he knows there will be some challenges as the technology is rolled out theyâ€™re looking forward to working out the initial bugs and creating a powerful and sustainable program unlike anything else in the state. As a pilot program, the state department of education will be monitoring Booneville closely to see what works and what doesnâ€™t to create a model program for similar districts in the state to follow. â€œThis has never been done at
a school district of our size with our limited resources,â€? he said. Beginning the 2014-15 school year, each student will pay a $50 per year technology fee which will go into a fund to support the regular upgrading of the devices. Students will also be responsible for the cost of replacement or repair of devices are damaged. English noted this is the same policy that currently applies to textbooks issued to students. District Technology Coordinator Dustin Pounders said the new devices are designed to hold up to student use and give him a wide range of options for managing and securing the technology. He noted federal law requires all Internet access done on any device owned by the school district must go through the districtâ€™s content filters to ensure students do not access any improper or illegal sites. No matter where the Chromebooks issued by the district are used any Internet use will go through the districtâ€™s filters and all activity will be logged to make sure they are used properly. He said he will also have the ability to remotely manage the devices to perform upgrades or change settings as needed. The web-based nature of Googleâ€™s operating system also makes it easy for students to share information or access their data from other devices if necessary.

Martin, 59, ran onto the field immediately following Texas A&Mâ€™s 52-48 win over Duke and took photos of Aggies coach Kevin Sumlin being doused with a water bucket by his players. Martin continued to take celebration shots before collapsing. Martin suffered an apparent heart attack and was administered CPR on the field, according to a statement from the Georgia Dome.

Cures to help a holiday hangover BY ROGER SIMON WASHINGTON — As usual, I am presenting my list of holiday hangover cures. I do not know why. When you need this, you probably won’t even be able to read it. Your eyes will be two pink dots, your teeth will itch, and your mouth will feel as if an army has marched through it. Actually, I have no sympathy for people who awake with crushing hangovers. A hangover is God’s way of telling you that you are still alive. But I know you expect aid and comfort from me, so I will once again share with you my collection of expert cures for this hangover season: 1) DR. PHILIP THOREK, a surgeon with an interest in nutrition and drinking: “Boy, alcohol really knocks the hell out of your liver. And the liver is a marvelous organ. But what do we do to it? We go out and kill off a fifth and turn into bibulous slobs. “The only real cure for a hangover is what I call the Tincture of Time. You have to wait hours and hours for your body to metabolize and destroy the alcohol. And it is not just the alcohol, but the impurities. The fusel oils! The congeners! The aldehydes! “A hangover is a form of poisoning. There is no doubt about this. Now, eating fatty foods, bread or cheese will help absorb some of the alcohol. But this doesn’t mean you can go and drink more. That’s crazy. Moderation, moderation. This is what we must learn. “A glass of wine is a good tranquilizer. But you must remember temperance. Not abstinence, but temperance. But what do we do? We go out and drink triple martinis, wake up with a terrible hangover and blame the olives!” 2) ROBERTO SURO, famous journalist: “Here is what they do in South America. One takes the rawest of fish. The fish is placed in lemon juice and raw onions. Hot sauce is added. The fish is then soaked for two days. No less. This is eaten with popcorn and beer. Yes, they have popcorn in South America. “This cure is known as tratamiento de choque. In North America, you would know it as the ‘shock treatment.’ “I also hear that among unsavory elements at some American places of higher education, a certain type of cigarette is smoked immediately upon awakening to remove all sense of pain. It is my understanding that this is not strictly legal, and therefore, I have never tried this myself. Also, I hear Valium is good. 3) THE GUILT CURE: Look in the mirror and read this in the voice of your spouse: “You slob. You absolute pig. Look at yourself. I can’t stand the sight of you. You do this every year. I hope you’re pleased with yourself. You look awful. If you ever do this again, I’m throwing you out of this house. You make me sick. You ought to be ashamed.” 4) THE TRADITIONAL CURE: Chicken soup cures anything. You can drink it. You can soak your head in it. You can wash your face in it. You can take the spots out of your tie with it. You can even mix it with white wine and soda and make a chicken soup spritzer. Even if it doesn’t help your hangover, it will remind you of your mother. 5) LORD BYRON’S CURE: “Let us have wine and women, mirth and laughter/Sermons and soda water the day after.” 6) ANOTHER MEDICAL CURE: Drinking causes dehydration and the contraction of the blood vessels. To cure this, drink water or fruit juices and take aspirin. 7) ZAY SMITH, newsman and former bartender: “People would come into the tavern in very bad shape and ask me for something to stop the pain. The only think I knew about was Worcestershire sauce on a lemon wedge. “You just close your eyes and bite the lemon wedge. It helps if you are standing up while doing this. Actually, this is not a cure for hangovers. It is a cure for hiccups. But these guys were so drunk, they didn’t know the difference. “I’d ask them if they felt better, and they’d say: ‘Huh? Where am I?’ “So I guess it works.” (Daily Corinthian columnist Roger Simon is Politico’s chief political columnist.

Prayer for today Gracious Father, my heart burns with shame when I think how much I claim, and how little I am. I pray that my body may not cast a shadow to-day, and cloud the light of my life to-morrow. Cleanse the windows of my soul that I may take in thy glory. Amen.

Medicaid will remain a live political grenade The absolute nightmare that has been the Obama administration’s rollout of the Affordable Care Act has provided additional ammunition – both from a political and policy standpoint – to Mississippi Republicans opposed to Medicaid expansion in Mississippi through the ACA or “Obamacare.” And while the Democratic minority in the Mississippi Legislature will continue to try to force the state to “opt-in” to ACA’s Medicaid expansion, they have neither the votes nor the clout to move the needle on that issue at this time. The HealthCare.gov. Web site intended to empower President Barack Obama’s signature legislation - developed at a cost of more than $634 million – simply didn’t work, but that wasn’t the worst of it. When the web site was eventually accessed, it gave inaccurate, misleading information to the people the program was purported to be helping. The web site glitch alone isn’t the only problem with the ACA rollout and it’s a gross over-simplification to suggest that it is. But the confusion generated by that glitch was enough to make Southern governors like Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant feel justified in their decision to reject Medicaid expansion.
The promise of the ACA is almost intoxicating. Reduce the shameful Sid Salter number of uninsured Columnist with the federal government paying the freight for the lion’s share of the public health care coverage. But the fiscal reality is more complicated. First, the more the Medicaid program expands, the larger the total state appropriation necessary to fund the state’s portion of the expanded Medicaid program. Second, the nation’s fiscal house isn’t in order to take on yet another open-ended entitlement program for which no dedicated funding mechanism has been put in place. Finally, there’s the uniquely Mississippi quandary over Medicaid: What to we do 15 years down the road if Congress changes their mind about the ACA’s funding formula and we’ve expanded Medicaid in Mississippi by another 300,000 patients? State lawmakers know from hard experience the political consequences of changing the Medicaid program. And from those experiences, they see the political impossibilities of taking expanded Medicaid cover-
age away a decade or two down the road if Congress increases the required state match to a level that’s unsustainable in Mississippi. The fact is that 1 in 7 or some 476,000 Mississippians don’t have health insurance. Expanding Medicaid as provided for in the ACA could put between 1 in 4 and 1 in 3 Mississippians on Medicaid. At the current match rates in ACA, the state looks foolish to forego Medicaid expansion. Yet if Congress changes those Medicaid match rates in the future, the view changes. Mississippi Republicans will hold sway on the Medicaid issue for the foreseeable future. Another card in the hands of the GOP leadership in state government is a slowly improving economy. State tax revenues are improving and beating the revenue estimate most months – and some months the surplus has been impressive. But all of those positives for the GOP on the Medicaid expansion issue don’t trump that fact that Mississippi remains the poorest state in the union. Public budgeting in Mississippi for decades has centered on financing public education and public health care first, then every other function of state government with what’s left. Political rhetoric to the
contrary aside, Mississippi’s dependence on federal funds isn’t likely to change dramatically in the near term. More than half the state’s total budget comes from the federal government. As the Democrats did while they ran the show and as the GOP has done since they wrested control of Mississippi’s government away from the Dems, Mississippi will continue to accept federal Medicaid dollars not directly related to the ACA. What Democrats will do at every opportunity for the next few years is repeat to all who will listen among the state’s uninsured or underinsured that it was a state government decision to deny expansion of the Medicaid program in Mississippi and that the GOP now runs state government. The GOP won’t dispute that. But the numbers to watch in the Medicaid expansion debate from the long view in Mississippi is that of the rising cost of uncompensated care – which taxpayers and health insurance ratepayers also subsidize. In the final analysis, only that number will determine whether or not the state expands Medicaid under ACA. (Daily Corinthian columnist Sid Salter is syndicated across the state.

Not getting what we pay for In real life when you find yourself paying more and getting less, you usually search for another product or service. With the federal government, it isn’t possible to take your business elsewhere unless you are prepared to give up your citizenship, as some have done. Such a drastic step is rejected by most of us because we still believe in the ideal that once was America, though not in the direction in which the country is currently headed. At the end of the year comes a letter from the person who prepares my taxes. He wants me to know about changes in the tax law associated with Obamacare. It is written in a way that only people with a gift for foreign languages can understand. Here are some excerpts. “Taxpayers Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI) exceeds $200,000 ($250,000 for couples filing jointly). “(i) Subject to a Medicare payroll tax increase of .9 percent on earned income (e.g., wages and net self-employment income) above these

amounts. Employers will pay 1.45 percent and employees will pay 1.45 percent Cal on the first Thomas $ 2 0 0 , 0 0 0 and 2.35 Columnist percent (1.45 percent + .9 percent) on the amount over $200,000 (withheld by the employer). Some of this may be returned if the employee files jointly because the threshold on a joint return is $250,000. Self-employed will pay 2.9 percent on the first $200,000 of net income and 3.8 percent on the amount over $200,000 (or $250,000 if filing jointly).” Are you still with me, or have you turned to the sports section? There’s more. “(ii) Subject to the new Medicare surtax of 3.8 percent on the lower of (a) your net investment income or (b) the amount that MAGI exceeds the $200,000/$250,000 amounts. Example: Steve and Alice file jointly: MAGI is $390,000 ($330,000
is wages and $60,000 is net investment income). Their wages exceed the $250,000 threshold by $80,000 and their MAGI exceeds $250,000 threshold by $140,000. They are subject to the Medicare payroll tax increase in the amount of $720 (.9 percent x $80,000). They are also subject to the Medicare surtax in the amount of $2,280 (3.8 percent x $60,000); note $60,000 is the lower of ‘excess’ MAGI ($140,000) and net investment income ($60,000).” There’s a second page of this, but why torture readers any further? Even some people at the IRS have been notoriously unhelpful in answering questions about this foreign language known as the U.S. tax code, but if taxpayers get something wrong, they must still pay for their mistakes. There are many hidden and not-so-hidden taxes in Obamacare and elsewhere. Here’s one part of my tax attorney’s letter I do understand: “The top tax bracket is now 39.6 percent (up from 35 percent) [and] the capital

gains rate and dividend rate may be increased to 20 percent (from 15 percent) plus the additional 3.8 percent Medicare surtax discussed above.” At least the guy has a sense of humor. He concludes in bold letters: “Just another simplification of the Internal Revenue Code.” Here’s my own attempt at dark humor. In our just concluded Christmas season, we recalled a different kind of Magi: wise men who came to worship and bring gifts to the Christ child. Now MAGI stands for Modified Adjusted Gross Income. How appropriate with a president who was called a messiah figure by some and to whom we are being forced to bring “gifts” in increasing amounts to be misspent on bloated and dysfunctional government. There’s only one way to fix this and it comes in the next two elections. (Cal Thomas is the host of “After Hours with Cal Thomas” on the FOX News Channel.

Good, bad news, for health overhaul WASHINGTON â€” This could be the year that things finally turn around for President Barack Obamaâ€™s health care law. Yet it could start with another round of glitches that vex consumers and leave Republicans crowing, â€œWe told you so.â€? The lawâ€™s major benefits take effect with the new year, along with an unpopular insurance mandate and the risk of more nerve-racking coverage disruptions. Big improvements are in store for some, including Howard Kraft of Lincolnton, N.C. A painful spinal problem left him unable to work as a hotel bellman. But heâ€™s got coverage because federal law now forbids insurers from turning away people with health problems. â€œI am not one of these people getting a policy because Iâ€™m being made to,â€? Kraft said. â€œI need one to stay alive.â€? Â
Celebrations ring in 2014 NEW YORKâ€” A world-wide wave of celebrations rang in 2014 with a dazzling 30-minute fireworks show in Dubai, a deluge of confetti in London that tasted as good as it looked and a lavish, boozy music-filled party throughout the streets of Las Vegas. In freezing New York Cityâ€™s Times Square, a sea of horn-tooting, hat-wearing revelers
cheered and some even smooched as the famed crystal ball dropped at midnight. Bronx-born U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor led the 60-second countdown and pushed the button that unleashed the shimmering orb with 2,688 crystals, a role usually filled by the New York City mayor. Mayor Michael Bloomberg, on his last day in office, sat out the celebration after 12 years on the job, while newly elected Mayor Bill de Blasio took the oath of office just after midnight at his Brooklyn home. Â
NYCâ€™s 109th mayor, is movementâ€™s face NEW YORKâ€” Twelve years ago, Bill de Blasio attended New York City Mayor Michael Bloombergâ€™s inauguration as a newly-minted city councilman, unknown to most outside his Brooklyn district and a small circle of political operatives. He is now Bloombergâ€™s successor, elected by a record margin, supported by a former â€”and perhaps a future â€” U. S. president, and hailed as the face of a progressive movement that pledges a significant realignment of the nationâ€™s largest city. De Blasioâ€™s improbable climb, which included a stint in an obscure public watchdog post and a stunning political comeback last summer, will reach its pinnacle at noon on a cold New Yearâ€™s Day when he is sworn in by former Pres-
Thursday, January 2, 2014
ident Bill Clinton. When de Blasioâ€™s completes the oath, the second heâ€™ll have taken in 12 hours, he will become the first Democratic mayor of New York since 1993 and be poised to enact sweeping changes to a city that became safer and cleaner than ever yet more economically divided during Bloombergâ€™s 12 years in office. Â
Prison uproar injures some inmates, guard WALNUT GROVE â€” Officials with a prison management company and the Mississippi Department of Corrections are investigating a disturbance at a facility in the Walnut Grove in Leake County. Issa Arnita, corporate communications director for Management and Training Corporation, says a fight broke out about 7 p.m. Tuesday in one of the housing units. Arnita says one correctional officer suffered minor injuries as did several inmates. The number of inmates injured was not released but at least four were taken to the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson. No other details were released. Arnita says the prison is on lockdown. Arnita says the incident may be gangrelated. Walnut Grove has a housing capacity of 1,461 inmates. Â
Nations scramble for position in Arctic WASHINGTON â€” The U.S. is racing to keep pace with stepped-up activity in the once sleepy Arctic frontier, but it is far from being in the lead. Nations across the world are hurrying to stake claims to the Arcticâ€™s resources, which might be home to 13 percent of the worldâ€™s undiscovered oil and 30 percent of its untapped natural gas. There are emerging fisheries and hidden minerals. Cruise liners filled with tourists are sailing the Arcticâ€™s frigid waters in increasing numbers. Cargo traffic along the Northern Sea Route, one of two shortcuts across the top of the Earth in summer, is on the rise. The U.S., which takes over the two-year rotating chairmanship of the eight-nation Arctic Council in 2015, has not ignored the Arctic, but critics say the U.S. is lagging behind the other seven: Russia, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Canada and Denmark, through the semiautonomous territory of Greenland.
sents about 43 percent of the VFDâ€™s budget. Belden Fire Chief Willie Payne said the money had been set aside to make payments on a fire truck, purchased six years ago for about $200,000. He said the Belden VFD will have to dip into its rainy day fund and also explore other options to make up for the difference. Volunteer fire departments are supported by a tax on each household in their coverage area. But now, the city of Tupelo will provide services to its newly annexed areas, meaning fewer homes for Belden to cover. Also, Belden, along with six other VFDs affected by the annexation, agreed to relinquish taxes from newly annexed residents, ending the prospect of double taxation. It all means there are fewer dollars now for regular maintenance, not to mention unexpected repairs for equipment. Payne said the fire
department is hoping for some help from the city of Tupelo. Tupelo Mayor Jason Shelton says he is open to continuing talks with Belden VFD reps to try and come up with some solution to their budget shortfall. Â
Columbus to pay more for liability insurance COLUMBUS â€” What the city of Columbus pays for liability insurance will increase 15 percent in 2014. Insurance consultant Eddie Mauck told officials this week that three or four major police claims combined with some others in the last three or four years have caught up with the city of Columbus. Mauck says a tightening insurance market contributed to the increase. The city paid about $260,000 this year to cover everything from weed eaters throwing rocks to fires destroying city buildings.
VFD losing money after annexation BELDEN â€” The city of Tupeloâ€™s annexation of 26 square miles over the past 18 months has reduced the coverage area of the Belden Volunteer Fire Department. It also meant a loss of dollars. â€œThe new annex is affecting us about $26,600,â€? Rex Haygood, president of the Belden VFDâ€™s board of commissioners, said. â€œIt throws up a red flag,â€? he said.

Bryant pushes welfare drug tests Associated Press
JACKSON — Republican Phil Bryant is starting his third year as Mississippi governor, and he says he wants to make public safety the top focus of the 2014 legislative session, which begins at noon Tuesday. He wants to train more state troopers and create “strike force” groups to help local law enforcement officers in areas where mayors or county supervisors say there are problems with gangs, drugs or violent crime. During an interview with The Associated Press, Bryant also said he remains firmly opposed to Medicaid expansion, which is an option under the federal health overhaul that President Barack Obama signed into law. He said he wants to expand community health centers as a way to provide primary care and deter people from going to emergency rooms for routine medical services. Bryant also said he wants to require drug testing for recipients of Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, or TANF, a government program that provides money to low-income families with children up to age 18. Similar proposals have gained little traction in recent years. Utah started a drug-testing program for welfare recipients in 2012. A state agency found that the state spent $30,000 the first year and found 12 people who tested positive for drug use. Bryant said he believes Mississippi would run a program for a similar amount of money. The Mississippi Department of Human Services annual report says that for the 2013 budget year, which ended June 30, the average monthly payment to a family receiving TANF was $140, while the average payment to an individual
was $67. The report said that in June, 9,563 families received TANF payments. Here are excerpts from the interview, which took place in the governor’s Capitol office: AP: Your plan to expand community health centers could help provide more primary care coverage, but it wouldn’t cover hospitalization. Expanding Medicaid could help cover hospital expenses for some people who are currently uninsured. Bryant: “For us to enter into an expansion program would be a fool’s errand. I mean, here we would be saying to 300,000 Mississippians, ‘We’re going to provide Medicaid coverage to you,’ and then the federal government through Congress or through the Senate, would do away with or alter the Affordable Care Act, and then we have no way to pay that. We have no way to continue the coverage.” AP: Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, who’s also a Republican, used to oppose Medicaid expansion but ended up pushing it through the Legislature there by saying that rejecting expansion would cause financial harm to hospitals and others who give uncompensated care. Have you thought about changing your mind here? Bryant: “I don’t question Jan Brewer’s logic. She can do what she wants to do in Arizona. But I don’t believe you ever turn that back. I think she is going to bear the burden of those costs if that does occur. I wish her well with that. We just disagree on that.” AP: You mentioned drug testing for TANF recipients. Is there some reason to believe people on the program are disproportionately troubled by drug problems, compared with the rest of the population? Bryant: “I don’t have evidence

Library putting yearbooks on disc CLARKSDALE — The Clarksdale Public Library is launching a project to digitize local school yearbooks. Library director Sarah Ruskey told The Clarksdale Press Register that she is collecting the yearbooks. She said the transfer to disc is being handled by the Oklahoma Correctional Industries. “We’re digitizing our yearbooks so they’ll be searchable by key word. They’ll be searchable on site and, hopefully, on day, remotely too,” Ruskey said. She said people can donate yearbooks to the program. “But we understand if they don’t want to part with their memories,” she said. Ruskey said she hopes to get the books Oklahoma by the end of January. She OCI contacted the library about doing the project. “We couldn’t afford it if we had to pay a traditional company,” she said. “They (prisoners) do it for free as part of their rehabilitation efforts.” OCI employs about 1,500 inmates. The program operates at prisons across Oklahoma.
Ruskey said collecting of yearbooks is not limited to high schools. “Any local schools, elementary through higher education that exist, or did exist.” She said the books will be returned to their owners, undamaged. “They have a special machine that’s designed to protect the books as they are scanned. It’s not like a flatbed scanner that you have at home, it’s a professional grade scanner,” she said.
New technology on order for Neshoba County EOC PHILADELPHIA — Neshoba County will spend $213,227 on digital technology systems for its new emergency operations center. Emergency Management Director Jeff Mayo tells The Neshoba Democrat that the equipment will enable people to text to 911 when the service becomes available from carriers. The $1.6 million EOC is nearing completion. It partially funded with a $976,800 grant from the Mississippi Office of Homeland Security. The county received a $233,267 federal grant to harden

the exterior wall, roof, windows and doors. The grants require a 25 percent match by the county. The construction phase of the EOC is expected to be completed by Feb. 1. The EOC is now located in the county jail. Mayo said the Next Generation-911 System is an enhanced and more modern system than what is being used now. He said the county also bought the Orion Aries CAD System which is an updated dispatch software than what is currently in use. Mayo said when the EOC facility is operational it will receive and dispatch 911 calls not only from Neshoba County, but also for Kemper County. Discussions are also ongoing about adding the city of Philadelphia. “We are currently working on getting set up with the 911 dispatch,” Philadelphia Mayor James Young said. “We are waiting to see what the new chief wants and how he wants it done.” Neshoba County supervisors signed a memorandum of understanding earlier this year to provide the services to Kemper County, including its sheriff and police departments, volunteer fire protection districts and ambulance services, among others.

to indicate that that population would be more likely. What I do have is a great concern that single mothers are not abusing drugs or other substances and try to maintain a family.” AP: If the public policy concern is to make sure children are being raised in homes where people aren’t addicted to drugs, why not test all parents? Bryant: “I’m not responsible for an individual or his actions unless he violates the law and then we will certainly put into effect the responsibility that we have to enforce the law for substance abuse. But when someone is taking tax dollars I think we have the right to determine whether or not that individual is abusing a substance and then how we go about treating them.” AP: Why not test corporate leaders whose companies get state tax money? Or why not test public employees, like yourself? Bryant: “If I was receiving any federal or state benefits to help raise my family, I’d be glad to take a drug test. I think that would be something that would be acceptable to me if I was receiving tax benefits. I work hard for my money. The federal government or the state government has a right, I think, to merely ask people who are receiving benefits through TANF to submit to a drug test so that we can identify if you’re abusing a substance and then how we go about treating you for that.” AP: TANF has a work requirement. Would you concede that some TANF recipients are, in fact, working hard? Bryant: “Oh, absolutely, and we’re trying to encourage more of that.... I don’t think that they can do a very good job of working at that job or do a very good job at that job if they’re abusing an illegal substance.”

Family feuding over child of sister facing time in jail DEAR ABBY: My sister “Nicole” faked several pregnancies to keep her boyfriends around until they wised up. She is now really pregnant by a married man. Nicole has a long criminal history and has been in and out of jail for various offenses. She’s now facing drug charges that could land her in jail for the next 10 or 15 years. If she’s found guilty, my mother will get custody of the baby so it won’t have to stay in foster care. My parents are in their late 50s and financially capable, but they’re not in the best of health. Mom plans to raise the child until Nicole gets out of prison because my sister “always wanted to be a mom.” My husband and I have been discussing adopting a child and would love to adopt Nicole’s baby. If we did, we’d get a child and could provide the love, safety and security my sister cannot. And the child would get a stable home. Mom feels Nicole “deserves” to be a mom, despite the fact that she’s going to jail and flits from man to man searching for someone to love her. How can I get my mother to see that the needs of this baby HAVE to come first? She should be more concerned with this innocent baby than her drugged-out daughter. Am I wrong to feel hurt and think my mother is choosing her over me? -- HEARTBROKEN
IN ALABAMA D E A R HEARTBROKEN: Stop personalizing this as a choice your mother is Abigail making beyou Van Buren tween and your sister. Try Dear Abby instead to make her understand how traumatic it will be to a child who could be as old as 10 or 15 to be handed over to a virtual stranger who has no job, no money and a long uphill climb to try and build a future. Your sister may have always dreamed of motherhood, but the most important part of being a parent -- aside from loving a child -- is being PRESENT. If your sister is found guilty, she will be absent long after her child’s primary attachments will have formed. If this doesn’t convince your mother to change her mind, you will have no choice but to accept her decision and consider adopting another child. P.S. Perhaps your father will understand that what you’re proposing makes sense and will speak on your behalf. DEAR ABBY: I’m in my late 20s, single and have no children. I have lived on my own since I was 18. I own my home, my car and have no credit card debt, but my mother refuses to acknowl-
edge me as an adult. When I do simple chores or cook meals, she acts surprised. She constantly pleads with me to move back home because she insists I can’t take care of myself and refuses to discuss it any further than belittling me. My friends say what she’s doing constitutes abuse. I’m not sure I agree, but I do think it is rude and manipulative. How can I deal with her condescending attitude when I’m with her? -- AT MY WIT’S END DEAR WIT’S END: Most parents strive to make their children independent. Your mother may want you home not because you can’t take care of yourself but because she doesn’t want to live alone. I wouldn’t call that abuse but I do consider it to be selfish and self-serving. You should not sacrifice your lifestyle to live with someone as manipulative as your mother. When she attacks, laugh and deflect her with humor. Assure her that as incompetent as she thinks you are, you’re “muddling through.” And if she persists, point out that if she doesn’t ease up, she’ll be seeing less of you. (Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.)
Horoscopes ARIES (March 21-April 19). If one person in your household is working less diligently than the others, it will cause tension. If you live alone, the tension might be caused by a loved one you sometimes compare yourself to. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’re careful not to waste time, especially not the time of a total stranger. When dealing with the public, you’ll be even more organized, purposeful and efficient than usual. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You will be rooting for someone who perhaps isn’t capable of doing the thing that needs to be done, but your hope and encouragement will lift this person to new levels of accomplishment. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Everybody wants something. Start with the people who want something small and easy to accommodate, like a glass of water. It will feel good to satisfy such needs, and this will prepare you
for a bigger game. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). People will reveal their character to you; you just have to know what to listen for. Something you hear won’t sit right with you. You may not know why, but your feeling is correct. Act on it. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You don’t want to push the ones you love into uncomfortable areas, but you have to. Who is going to help them find out what they are made of if you don’t? LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Be careful not to waste time wishing things were different than they are. Instead, note that you might prefer something different, and then get to work creating it. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). What you do today you do specifically to please one person, and that’s what makes your actions so interesting and meaningful. So what if that one person happens to be you? You deserve it! SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec.
21). Smart people may point out the inaccuracies they witness or argue fine points, but wise people know what to overlook. You are both smart and wise, so you make internal notes, not public remarks. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Things go well until it is time to say goodbye. People seem to hate leaving you, but you have a schedule to keep, too, so don’t let the goodbyes drag on. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Afraid of their own judgment, many people will work hard to avoid being alone. You, on the other hand, rather enjoy the self-reflection that comes when there is no one else to reflect off of. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll smooth things over socially. You sense what people long to hear and will express it beautifully. You don’t mind at all, especially since today it happens also to be the truth.

LEGARRETTE BLOUNT, RB, PATRIOTS New England’s newfound workhorse runner had 24 carries for 189 yards (7.9 ypc) and two trips to the end zone during a 34–20 victory over the Bills. Prior to the Week 17 outburst, Blount had recorded just three games with 60plus rushing yards and only one contest with at least 15 carries. The 6'0", 250-pounder has been consistent for the Pats, with 11 games of 40 or more yards on the ground, along with 772 yards (5.0 ypc) and seven TDs this year. GREG HARDY, DE, PANTHERS One week after recording a hat-trick in a win over the Saints, Hardy set a new team record with four sacks during a 21–20 victory on the road against the Falcons. But Hardy wasn’t the only Panther getting in on the action. Charles Johnson, Star Lotulelei, Frank Alexander and Mike Mitchell joined Hardy to notch a Carolina team-record nine sacks. Hardy ends the year with 15 sacks, which couldn’t have come at a better time for the soon-to-be free agent. CHRIS JOHNSON, RB, TITANS CJ1K joined LaDainian Tomlinson, Corey Dillon, Curtis Martin, Barry Sanders and Eric Dickerson as only the sixth running back in NFL history to top the 1,000-yard mark in each of his first six seasons. Johnson had 27 carries for 127 yards and one TD in a 16–10 win over the Texans. Due $8 million next season, Johnson may have played his last game in Tennessee following his second-worst rushing season (1,077 yards). AARON RODGERS, QB, PACKERS In Week 9, Mr. Discount Doublecheck suffered a collarbone injury in a 27–20 loss to the rival Bears. Title Town was 5–2 when Rodgers went down before staggering to a 2–5–1 record without their Super Bowl MVP signal-caller. So it was only fitting that Rodgers made his comeback at Chicago in Week 17 during a winnertake-all heavyweight fight for the NFC North crown and a trip to the playoffs. Rodgers completed 25-of-39 passes for 318 yards, two TDs and two INTs in a 33–28 victory. Even his mistakes worked out in Green Bay’s favor, as a second-quarter forward fumble was recovered by Jarrett Boykin for a surreal 15-yard TD.

Clinch NFC’s top seed, NFL’s toughest division. Peyton Manning ends year with 5,477 yards, 55 TDs. Gaining ground on the ground as playoffs approach. Carolina headed to playoffs for first time since 2008. Phil Dawson matches career long with 56-yard FG. Drew Brees tops 5,000 yards for record fourth time. Have not won a game in postseason since 1990. Andrew Luck first with 8,000 yards in first two years. Rest starters, lose five of last seven after 9–0 start. Soar from 1–3 to hosting a Wild Card playoff game. Seven men on one side of center penalty uncalled. Aaron Rodgers returns to lead Pack to postseason. “Ten wins and you’re in,” not the case for Arizona. Was Jay Cutler’s final INT his final pass in Chicago? No Romo, no problem; Orton tosses late INT in loss. 15th reigning champ to miss playoffs following year. Rally around Rex Ryan, save coach’s job with win.

While playoff tickets are being punched on the final Sunday of the NFL regular season, just as many pink slips are being prepared for the following day — known as “Black Monday” in head coaching circles. This season was no different, as five coaches were fired by their respective teams. Here’s a look at the coaches who comprise this year’s “Black Monday” class. They likely will not be the only coaches fired, but they are the first. Cleveland Browns Rob Chudzinski, 45 Record: 4–12 The biggest surprise of this year’s axed coaches, “Chud” was a lifelong Browns fan from Toledo, Ohio, who had worked with the organization twice — as tight ends coach in 2004 and offensive coordinator in ’07-08 — before taking over the top spot this offseason. The Browns are on the verge of hiring their seventh coach since returning to the NFL as an expansion team in 1999. The next Cleveland coach will follow the distinguished headsets of Chris Palmer (5–27 record with Browns), Butch Davis (24–34), Romeo Crennel (24–40), Eric Mangini (10–22), Pat Shurmur (9–23) and Chudzinski.
For many, fantasy football is over. But for those diehards out there, fantasy playoff football is just starting. In the typical rotisserie-league structure — where teams accumulate points throughout the playoffs — drafting players in Wild Card matchups is a gamble worth taking. Bengals wideout A.J. GREEN should be near the top of every draft board this week. Cincinnati is a perfect 8–0 at home this season and Green is fresh off of a 98-catch, 1,426-yard, 11-TD Pro Bowl campaign.

Minnesota Vikings Leslie Frazier, 54 Record: 21–32–1 (0–1 playoffs) Frazier went out in style, winning the finale at the Metrodome and then shaking the hand and/or hugging each of his players as they entered the locker room. After going 10–6 and losing in the Wild Card Round of the playoffs last season, Frazier’s Vikings struggled to a 5–10–1 record this year and finished last in the NFC North division standings for the second time in three full seasons.

The volatile Jim Schwartz had only one winning season with the Detroit Lions, going 10–6 in 2011 and leading Detroit to its first playoff appearance since 1999.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Greg Schiano, 47 Record: 11–21 After posting a 68–67 record at Rutgers, Schiano gave it the ol’ college try in the NFL. But his rah-rah style resulted in two last-place NFC South finishes and a pair of miniscandals. Schiano was scrutinized for rushing the Giants while in “Victory Formation” and for playing Darrelle Revis in zone coverage. Detroit Lions Jim Schwartz, 47 Record: 29–51 (0–1 playoffs) Speaking of mini-scandals, Schwartz is most known for his postgame handshake hysterics with 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh. Schwartz inherited an 0–16 Lions team and had them in the playoffs three years later. But it was all down hill in the Motor City after that.

Washington Redskins Mike Shanahan, 61 Record: 24–40 (0–1 playoffs) Shanahan was a flashy hire for owner Dan Snyder back in 2010. A two-time Super Bowl winner with the Broncos, Shanahan had a 138–86 record with John Elway as his quarterback. In Washington, Shanahan’s legacy will be forever tied to Robert Griffin III. The Redskins traded their first-round picks in 2012 (No. 6 overall), 2013 (No. 2) and 2014, along with their 2012 secondrounder (No. 39) to select RG3. The deal looked to be a brilliant move, as the Skins went 10–6 and earned a playoff berth in RG3’s rookie year. But an RG3 knee injury — that many blamed on Shanahan — suffered in a Wild Card loss to Seattle was followed by an ugly 3–13 year in which Snyder, Shanahan and RG3 had a public power struggle.

CHIEFS (11-5) AT COLTS (11-5) This is a rematch of two weeks ago, when Indy stampeded Kansas City, 23–7, at Arrowhead. The Colts forced four turnovers to clinch their fifth win in their last six meetings with the Chiefs. Kansas City sat its notable starters in the season finale at San Diego, meaning the loss to Indianapolis was the last on-field action seen by the faces of K.C.’s franchise. Alex Smith, in particular, struggled with a season-worst three turnovers, second-lowest passer rating (57.6), second-most sacks (five) and third-fewest passing yards (153) of the year. Expect a heavy dose of Jamaal Charles — who had 1,980 yards from scrimmage and 19 total TDs this season — against Indy’s 26th-ranked rushing defense. SAINTS (11-5) AT EAGLES (10-6) New Orleans has lost five of its last six games on the road and has a 3–5 record away from home this season, with wins at Tampa Bay, Chicago and Atlanta — teams with a combined record of 16–32. Drew Brees has thrown 12 TDs and nine INTs away from the Superdome, compared to 27 TDs and three INTs in the Big Easy. But Brees does carry a 5–4 playoff record and a Super Bowl MVP into this matchup with Philly’s first-time playoff starter Nick Foles, whose split stats are impressive from any vantage point. Foles led the NFL with a 119.2 passer rating, thanks to 27 TDs and just two INTs in place of the injured Mike Vick. The league’s leading rusher also lines up in first-year coach Chip Kelly’s potent offense, as LeSean McCoy rushed for 1,607 yards and nine TDs this season. CHARGERS (9-7) AT BENGALS (11-5) Cincinnati has made the playoffs in three straight seasons for the first time in franchise history. Now the Bengals will attempt to win a playoff game for the first time since 1990. Cincy’s previous two postseason defeats have come on the road in Houston. This time around, Marvin Lewis, Andy Dalton and Co. will kick off at Paul Brown Stadium, where the Bengals have a perfect 8–0 record this season. Cincinnati has successfully defended the Jungle against playoff teams New England (13–6), Indianapolis (42–28) and Green Bay (34–30). San Diego will be no easy out, however. The Chargers won five of their last six games to rally from a 4–6 playoff pretender to a 9–7 AFC Wild Card contender. 49ERS (12-4) AT PACKERS (8-7-1) San Francisco’s Colin Kaepernick has been nearly unstoppable in two career starts against Green Bay. The dual-threat playmaker has passed for a combined 675 yards, five TDs and one INT, while tucking the ball to scramble for 203 yards and two TDs in a 45–31 Divisional Round playoff win last year and 34–28 Week 1 victory to start this season. Neither of those games was played at Lambeau Field, however. But the conference’s defending champions have been solid gold, regardless of the venue this year. The 49ers are currently riding a six-game winning streak and their only losses all season have all been against playoff-bound squads — at Seattle, Indianapolis, Carolina and at New Orleans. But Title Town has its mojo back following the hero’s return of Aaron Rodgers, a Super Bowl MVP winner in his own right.
Upon review, Manning’s passing record stands Associated Press
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Peyton Manning’s spectacular season was every bit the record-breaking sensation it appeared. The NFL said Tuesday that Manning’s singleseason mark of 5,477 yards passing will stand. Elias Sports Bureau, the league’s official statistician, reviewed a 7-yard pass from Manning to wide receiver Eric Decker and determined it will remain a forward pass and not a lateral, which would have made it a 7-yard run. That would have subtracted 7 yards from Manning’s total, leaving him with 5,470 yards, six shy of Drew Brees’ 2011 record. “The stats crew at the game scored this play as a forward pass. During the course of a season, there
are many similar plays which could be reviewed by the Elias,” NFL spokesman Michael Signora said. “In this case, the determination of Elias is that the fairest resolution is for the ruling of the on-site stats crew to stand.” The play in question occurred with just over a minute remaining in the first quarter of Denver’s 34-14 win at Oakland on Sunday. Remember that camera angles can be deceiving, depending on where the camera is located. But there were two angles that would back up whichever argument one wants to make. Manning’s pass clearly looks like a lateral in one camera angle. Another angle, from above, however, appears to show
Decker gathering in the ball at the Denver 48yard line with Manning about a foot deeper than that. Manning finished with 266 yards passing before sitting out the second half, and his final throw was a 6-yard TD toss to Demaryius Thomas which gave him 5,477 yards for the season and also 55 TD passes, five more than Tom Brady’s record set in 2007, considered a much more significant achievement that the single-season yardage mark. With Denver safely ahead 31-0 at halftime and the home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs secured, Manning watched backup Brock Osweiler play the entire second half in his place.
Elias routinely reviews plays and often tweaks totals in the days following games, then notifies teams of corrections to totals such as yardage or sack numbers. Manning broke the TD record two weeks ago at Houston and was all smiles afterward, crediting his coaches and teammates and saying it was a significant mark that meant a lot to him because it came in the midst of a successful season. The Broncos (13-3) are the AFC’s top seed in the playoffs for the second straight season. They have a bye this weekend and will host a divisional round game Jan. 12. He was much more nonchalant about the yardage record. Had the play in ques-
tion originally been ruled a lateral, Manning would have finished the first half six yards shy of Brees’ record of 5,476 yards, and that might have prompted the Broncos to send him out to start the third quarter even with the big lead and the playoffs looming. Then again, maybe not. Coach John Fox demurred when asked Monday if he would have considered sending Manning out for another series after halftime if he hadn’t already broken Brees’ mark. “That’s hard to say. ... What was very positive was I thought we played, if not our best, one of our better halves of football that put us in a position where we could do different things,” Fox said.
“No. 1, all those things are great, those individual accomplishments, team accomplishments, but not at the risk of putting a player at risk. So I don’t know if I’ve answered your question, I’m just kind of telling you what would go through our minds in that situation.” After breaking Brady’s TD record, Manning said he expected Brady to break the mark again soon, adding that all sorts of marks will fall like dominoes if NFL owners get their way and expand the regular season from 16 to 18 games. Had Elias’ ruling gone the other way, his yardage record wouldn’t have even lasted 48 hours. Now, it’ll stand for at least a year and maybe much longer.

Fried Rice: MSU rolls in Liberty Bowl Associated Press
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Dak Prescott delivered a performance that would have made his mother proud. Prescott threw three touchdown passes and ran for two more scores Tuesday as Mississippi State trounced Rice 44-7 in the most one-sided Liberty Bowl victory in the game’s 55-year history. The sophomore quarterback delivered arguably the finest performance of his career less than two months after his mother, Peggy, died of cancer. “It’s really just been about Mississippi State University and this football team comforting me, being there for
me and just helping me and making what I would say is the hardest thing in my life easier,” Prescott said. Mississippi State (7-6) wrapped up its fourth straight winning season and prevented Rice (10-4) from winning bowl games in back-to-back years for the first time. All of Mississippi State’s losses this season came against teams currently in the Top 25: No. 13 Oklahoma State, No. 2 Auburn, No. 14 LSU, No. 8 South Carolina, No. 20 Texas A&M and No. 3 Alabama. The Bulldogs became bowl eligible by closing the regular season with consecutive overtime victories over Arkansas and Ole Miss. This marks

Texas A&M edges Duke in shootout ATLANTA — Even by Johnny Manziel’s Heisman-winning standards, his lead role in Texas A&M’s comeback was one to remember. It could prove to be a perfect ending to Manziel’s college career. Manziel threw four touchdown passes, and Toney Hurd Jr. returned an interception 55 yards for the late go-ahead touchdown in Texas A&M’s 52-48 victory over Duke on Tuesday night in the Chick-fil-A Bowl. Led by Manziel, the Aggies rallied after trailing 38-17 at halftime. It was the highest-scoring game in the bowl’s history. Manziel, playing in what might be his final college game, completed 30 of 38 passes for 382 yards and ran for 73 yards and a touchdown. “I was in a zone I haven’t been in before,” Manziel said. “Ever. I just wanted this game.” Hurd’s interception return gave the No. 20 Aggies (9-4) their first lead with 3:33 remaining. No. 22 Duke (10-4) took a 41-31 lead into the fourth quarter. The Blue Devils couldn’t hold off the comeback and are still looking for their first bowl win since beating Arkansas 7-6 in the 1961 Cotton Bowl. Hurd stepped in front of receiver Johnell Barnes for the interception, the first turnover for either team. Texas A&M linebacker Nate Askew ended Duke’s next possession with another interception. Duke’s Anthony Boone passed for 427 yards and three touchdowns but was left to regret the two interceptions, especially Hurd’s. “It hurt,” Boone said. “It was a very unfortunate play on my part.” Manziel, a third-year sophomore who won the Heisman Trophy as a freshman last season, is widely projected as a first-round pick if he decides to enter the NFL draft. He wasn’t ready to talk about his decision after the game. “I can’t even talk about anything other than this game,” Manziel said. “This was unreal. ... I haven’t made (the decision) yet. I’m in the moment right now.” Asked if this would be a perfect way to cap his college career, Manziel said: “I don’t know. It’s an unreal feeling, I know that. The way these guys fought, it was unreal. I’m proud of them.” Texas A&M’s defense opened the second half with its first stop of the game. The Blue Devils, successful on two fourth-down calls in the first half, were stopped on fourth down from the Texas A&M 35. That set the stage for Manziel’s magic. The elusive quarterback had runs of 12 and 14 yards before his highlight play of the game. On second down from the Duke 17, Manziel danced and shuffled in traffic be-

No. 23 Georgia blows chances, loses in Gator Associated Press
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — No. 23 Georgia was near the end zone all day. Seven times to be exact. The Bulldogs scored just one touchdown in seven trips inside the 21-yard line, their biggest downfall in a 24-19 loss to Nebraska in the rain-soaked Gator Bowl on Wednesday. Georgia (8-5) failed repeatedly to take advantage of opportunities, settling for four short field goals and dropping two fourth-down passes in the red zone in the closing minutes. Rantavious Wooten dropped a fourth-and-2 pass around the 10-yard line with 4:42 to play. The Bulldogs got the ball back and marched toward the end zone, but Arthur Lynch dropped a fourthand-3 pass that would have moved the chains with about 25 seconds remaining. “That (stinks),” said run-
ning back Todd Gurley, who finished with 183 total yards. “To go all the way down there like that, and on fourth down you just give it to them, that’s a bad feeling right there.” No one felt worse than Lynch, a senior and team captain. “I think I turned my head at the last second and was thinking end zone,” Lynch said. “It’s one of those situations. It’s not so much I dropped the pass. It’s that I let my team down. At the end of the day, it’s one of those things that you can never forget, brush off your shoulders. “It’s a win or a loss, and we lost. But I will never able to forget this one. If I run that play 49 more times, I make the catch.” Lynch finished with six catches for 69 yards. Gurley had seven receptions for 97 yards, including a 25-yard score on the first play of the
fourth quarter that cut Nebraska’s lead to 24-19. But the Bulldogs couldn’t finish. The dropped passes were huge. And so were turnovers. Reggie Davis muffed a punt deep in Georgia territory in the second quarter and Nebraska (9-4) scored two plays later. The Huskers also turned Hutson Mason’s lone interception into a touchdown. Mason, making his second straight start in place of injured starter Aaron Murray, completed 21 of 39 passes for 320 yards, with a touchdown and an interception. “I don’t think anybody wants to go out there and slosh around,” Georgia coach Mark Richt said, blaming some of his team’s issues on wet footballs and sloppy field conditions. “It makes it tougher to execute in the passing game, obviously. But
I thought Hutson, as time went on and got used to the elements, did a really good job. Hutson’s a great football player, a great person, a great leader for our team. Got a lot of faith how he’ll do in the future as well.” Mason believes starting the final two games will pay dividends next season. “It’s been a big blessing,” he said. “By no means am I happy that Aaron got hurt. It’s been a great opportunity to get two games under my belt. It’s huge for next season when you talk about, ‘Do guys believe in you?’ For my career here, I’ve been known as a practice player. For guys to see me perform in two games, I believe that they believe in me. “It’s big going into the offseason. Guys believing in you, buying in, knowing you’re the leader of this team, knowing you’re in charge, it’s huge.”

OUTBACK CONTINUED FROM 10
and, finally 37 yards for his second touchdown. He also scored on a 14yard run in the second quarter. Iowa was back in a bowl after staying at home with a 4-8 record in 2012. The Hawkeyes’ four regularseason losses came to nationally ranked Michigan State, Ohio State, Wisconsin and Northern Illinois, teams that took a combined record of 45-6 into the Rose, Orange, Capital One and Poinsettia bowls. LSU’s first trip to Tampa since 1989, when the Outback was known as the Hall of Fame Bowl, capped another successful season under Les Miles, but one that fell short of expectations for a program accustomed to contending for national titles. Besides a three-touchdown loss to Alabama,
the Tigers dropped threepoint decisions to SEC rivals Georgia and Mississippi, while also displaying their potential by being the only team to defeat No. 2 Auburn during the regular season. Jennings came off the bench in the closing minutes to finish a comeback victory over Arkansas in the regular-season finale, leading a 99-yard gamewinning drive that he finished with a 49-yard TD pass to Travin Dural. Miles expected Jennings to play well, citing poise as one of the 19-year-old’s strongest assets. Iowa didn’t have much film to study of the young quarterback, but Hawkeyes coach Kirk Ferentz said any newcomer who entered a program such as LSU’s and rose to No. 2 on the depth chart as a true freshman figured to have the makings of a star.

Subdivision teams. Rice gained only 61 yards rushing — 179 below its season average — on 32 carries against Mississippi State. Charles Ross, who entered the day having rushed for 1,252 yards and 14 touchdowns this season, was held to 28 yards on 10 carries. “We knew coming into this game we were going to have to play our best to win it,” Rice coach David Bailiff said. “We didn’t.” Rice took an early lead on Ross’ 1-yard touchdown run, but Mississippi State took control
by reaching the end zone on six of its next seven possessions. Prescott threw first-half touchdown passes to LaDarius Perkins, Malcolm Johnson and Artimus Samuel before running for two scores in the third quarter. The Liberty Bowl is about a three-hour drive from Mississippi State’s campus, and the proximity created a home-game atmosphere for the Bulldogs. At least 90 percent of the fans appeared to be wearing Mississippi State maroon.

Nobody faced more adversity than Prescott, who set a Liberty Bowl record by accounting for five touchdowns. Prescott was 17 of 28 for 283 yards passing and also ran for 78 yards on 14 carries. Prescott’s performance delighted a partisan crowd of 57,846 and capped a triumphant lateseason performance amid personal tragedy for the sophomore quarterback. Prescott came off the bench in the fourth quarter to lead Mississippi
State to a 17-10 overtime victory over Ole Miss last month that earned the Bulldogs a bowl bid. . Although Prescott and senior Tyler Russell had shared quarterback duties throughout the regular season, Prescott had the job to himself in the Liberty Bowl while Russell recovered from surgery to repair a torn labrum in his throwing shoulder. Prescott responded better than anyone could have reasonably imagined. Prescott thanked his teammates, Mississippi State coach Dan Mul-
len, university President Mark Keenum and the entire Mississippi State community for sticking with him and helping him persevere. “It just allows me to go out there and just play football in peace and be at ease,” Prescott said. Prescott wasn’t Mississippi State’s only star on a night when the Bulldogs outgained Rice 533-145 and scored the game’s final 44 points. Mississippi State’s Jameon Lewis caught nine passes for 220 yards to break the Liberty Bowl
receiving record held by Houston’s Vincent Marshall, who had 201 yards in a 44-36 loss to South Carolina in 2006. Lewis also set the school singlegame record. “When he has the ball in his hands, he’s special,” Mullen said. The Bulldogs also played dominant defense. Rice had won the Conference USA title — its first outright league championship of any kind since 1957 — by relying on a rushing attack that was ranked 16th among all Football Bowl

fore vaulting a defender and dumping a short pass to Travis Labhart, who scored easily for his third touchdown of the game. “It looked like we had him down three times,” Duke coach David Cutcliffe said. “He’s just strong, so strong.” Josh Snead ran and caught passes for touchdowns and blocked a punt to set up a scoring run by Boone as Duke dominated the first half. Snead capped Duke’s opening drive with an 11yard touchdown catch. He had 17 carries for 104 yards and a touchdown and three catches for 21
yards and a touchdown. Juwan Thompson added 92 yards rushing for the Blue Devils and Jamison Crowder had 12 receptions for 163 yards and a touchdown. All the pregame focus on Manziel and his possible farewell game failed to address the Aggies’ weakness that made the 2013 season a disappointment. Texas A&M ranked last in the Southeastern Conference and 105th in the nation in total defense and 88th in the nation in scoring defense. Duke’s offense, led by Boone, ripped through the vulnerable Texas A&M defense. The Blue
Devils gained 365 yards with no punts in the first half while building the three-touchdown lead. Manziel and the Aggies couldn’t match Duke’s relentless attack. Mistakes hurt the Aggies, including an unsportsmanlike conduct call against receiver Mike Evans which helped to stall their first possession. Evans drew a second personal foul call later in the first quarter and then had to hear about it on the sideline
from Manziel. Duke attacked with gofor-broke play-calling. The Blue Devils were successful on two fourand-1 plays in a secondquarter drive that ended with Snead’s 25-yard touchdown run. Duke then added even more pressure by recovering an onside kick following the touchdown. The recovery at midfield set up Ross Martin’s 18-yard field goal on the final play of the half.
