City eyes street equipment BY JEBB JOHNSTON

Corinth is considering the purchase of an asphalt recycler in order to do better fixes on small-scale street repairs. The Board of Aldermen on Tuesday gave approval for Street Commissioner Philip Verdung to travel to Albany, N.Y., to inspect a used Bagela

asphalt recycler that would cost $43,500. The limited availability of hot mix from the asphalt plant is one reason. “This year, we were able to get hot mix for about two months out of the year,� he said. “The rest of the time, we either had to use cold mix or we had to wait. This will give us the ability

to keep asphalt on our yard and use it as we need it.� Old chunks of asphalt from millings can be reconditioned and reused. It will eliminate the need for temporary cold mix fixes. “This will allow us to do a permanent job the first time, every time, at a significant cost savings,� said Verdung.

In his report, he also told the board that the new leaf vacuum is currently out of commission, awaiting parts from the manufacturer to get it back out and making the rounds. Other departments got approval for vehicle purchases. The police department is getting two Ford Explorers — one at $24,000 without equipment

Fiber ACT X @ Crossroads Arena push gearing back up BY JEBB JOHNSTON

With the holidays past, the campaign for fiber Internet service is renewing its push to get Corinth residents signed up. Fiber advocates gathered Tuesday to work on the game plan moving forward to secure gigabit per second Internet service. The team is looking to develop a list of frequently asked questions and plans to spur signups by working public events, planning neighborhood gatherings and designating “fiberhood champions� who will distribute information in their neighborhoods. Another video is likely to be produced, as well. The group will have a booth at the Alcorn County Basketball Tournament at the arena on Thursday, when Corinth has three games. A big push at community events is one of the ways Kansas City, Kansas, got people signed up for Google Fiber. The group is planning a neighborhood meeting as a test run to see if the approach will be successful. The hosts will present information about the benefits of C Spire Fiber to the Home and give their neighbors an opportunity to sign up. The three “fiberhoods� have a long way to go to reach their target signup rates of 45 percent in the northern block and 35 percent in the central and southern blocks for C Spire to deploy the service. The northern block is currently at 5 percent, central is at 2 percent and southern is at 1 percent. Among the other eight competing cities, Quitman, a city of about 2,300, has reached 13 percent, while Please see FIBER | 2A

and one at $28,827 with equipment. Both are demo vehicles being sold below the state contract price. The sewer department will buy two F-150 pickups from Long Lewis at $23,591. In other business, the board gave a 60-day extension on the Wren property cleanup on Droke Road.

Wintry mix makes for hazardous traveling BY ZACK STEEN

The Crossroads area will get another chance for a wintry mix tonight into Thursday as a weak upper level disturbance moves across the area. The National Weather Service in Memphis says a mix of snow, freezing rain and sleet will all be possible starting late tonight. Temperatures will likely be in the upper 20s to lows 30s tonight through noon on Thursday. By noon the area should be above freezing with precipitation changing over to all rain. Even though precipitation amounts are forecasted to be light, the roadways in Corinth and Alcorn County could be hazardous by Thursday morning. “We have our trucks ready and full of salt to lay down,� said Ricky Gibens, Alcorn County director of emergency services. “If needed, we’ll cover the bridges with salt early.� Precipitation percentage totals are 20 percent of freezing rain and a light mix tonight, with a 40 percent chance of the same for Thursday morning.

Learning to waltz, tango and foxtrot Cities, county tackle Associated Press

HATTIESBURG — By day, he’s a university dean. By night, he’s a master of the foxtrot. Or something like that. Truth be told, University of Southern Mississippi College of Health Dean Michael Forster, 62, has found the perfect nighttime hobby to shake off his day job and go incognito. That’s because the spot where he and his wife, Sylvia, land each Thursday to learn to waltz, tango and foxtrot — the Grand Ballroom in downtown Hattiesburg — attracts folks from all walks of life, from insurance agents to stayat-home moms. And the lessons, taught by USM graduate Rebecca Chandler, focus more on learning the right steps than on social chitchat. “Everybody is kind of at

the same level. It’s almost like no respecter of persons,� said Forster, of his amateur dancing peers. “There’s no business dealings. Nobody cares if you’re a Baptist. That sort of thing.� “It’s basically, ‘You like to tango? Let’s dance,’� said fellow dancer Karen Adams, a purchasing manager at Hattiesburg Clinic and president of the Hattiesburg chapter of USA Dance. The local chapter of USA Dance, which sponsors classes and a monthly social dance at the Jackie Dole Sherrill Community Center in downtown Hattiesburg, boasts 56 members now — up from 18 when it started two years ago. “We’ve grown a lot,� said Adams, crediting a couple of successful membership drives. The growth parallels

the recent surge of interest in ballroom dancing nationwide, thanks, in part, to the TV show “Dancing with the Stars,� which first began airing in 2005. “I think it’s had less of an impact now than the first couple of years that it was on,� Adams said. “But, no doubt, I think it drove a lot of people to say, ‘Hey, I can do that.’� That’s a good thing, said Forster, who can testify that formal dance is a great way for mind and body to stay robust together. He is, after all, a senior health administrator. “There’s a lot of scientific evidence that’s been repeatedly researched that dance is one of the best ways to join physical challenges and cognitive challenges,� said Forster, who became dean of USM’s College of Health in 2009.

“I’ve been doing this for over a year and a half,� he explained. “And every time there’s a new dance step, I can feel a few brain cells moving around trying to grasp it the same time as the body does.� It wasn’t just the health benefits that attracted Forster, who hails from New Orleans, to ballroom dancing. He says it all started with his admiration for the ability of his parents’ generation to glide along the dance floor, during a time when the Viennese Waltz wasn’t exactly in fashion. “I grew up in the 1960s,� he laughs. “There was not a whole lot of organized anything.� A “Dancing with the Deans� USM Foundation fundraiser in February 2012 really ignited his interests. He’s been memorizing steps ever since.

arena in 2004. The first tourney was held the following year with a record

3,804 attending. During the three days of the 2013 tournament,

3,380 people attended. The 3,380 in attendance was the second highest turnout during the nine years at the Arena. The record for attendance remains the initial ACT at the Arena. Each of the three days in 2005 saw over a 1,000 attend each session. “The positive side about the tournament being out here is a person doesn’t have to worry about parking and finding a seat,� said Whitaker.

road congestion relief Associated Press

HERNANDO — DeSoto County has agreed to participate in a major $9.5 million traffic congestion-mitigation project. The Commercial Appeal reports that the roadway project aims largely at busy Goodman Road (Mississippi Highway 302), Interstate 55 and U.S. Highway 51 affecting Horn Lake, Southaven and Olive Branch and Hernando. Projects include installation of 37 miles of buried fiber-optic cable to aid county-city communications, 47 connected or synchronized traffic signals, 48 trafficsurveillance cameras, 63 traffic-data collectors

and five overhead interstate dynamic message signs to alert drivers of hazards or detours. The Mississippi Department of Transportation estimates that synchronized traffic signal timing alone can result in travel time reductions of 7 percent to 25 percent. Meanwhile, integrating traveler information with incidentmanagement systems can increase peak-period speeds by 8 percent to 13 percent, to further trim travel time, said board of supervisors’ president Lee Caldwell. “And having those cameras will help,� she said. “At Christmastime we’ll be able to see where the traffic is building up, and steer clear.�

to receive free telephone and online counseling. “Smokers may also be eligible to receive free nicotine replacement therapies, such as the patch or gum,� she said. Getting professional help can make a difference for those trying to kick the habit of smoking. “Nicotine is an incredibly addictive drug and the cravings and withdrawal symptoms can overpower

even the strongest will,� said Roy Hart, Director of the Office of Tobacco Control at the Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH). “Those who seek and receive professional help are twice as likely to quit for good.� Nearly 540,000 adults in the state smoke cigarettes and 2,700 Mississippi kids under the age of 18 become smokers each year. About 4,700 Mississippi adults die from smoking each year and 69,000 Mississippi kids under the age of 18 will die prematurely from smoking. “The New Year is a great time to plan to quit and people can succeed by understanding quitting isn’t easy, making a plan to quit and getting professional help,� said McGrath. Mississippians can call 1-800–QUITNOW or visit to take advantage of the services offered by the Mississippi Tobacco Quitline.

Today in history Today is Wednesday, Jan. 8, the eighth day of 2014. There are 357 days left in the year. Â

Today’s Highlight in History: On Jan. 8, 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson, in his State of the Union address, declared an “unconditional war on poverty in America.â€? Â

On this date: In 1790, President George Washington delivered his first State of the Union address to Congress in New York. In 1815, U.S. forces led by Gen. Andrew Jackson defeated the British in the Battle of New Orleans — the closing engagement of the War of 1812. In 1912, the African National Congress was founded in Bloemfontein, South Africa. In 1918, President Woodrow Wilson outlined his Fourteen Points for lasting peace after World War I. Mississippi became the first state to ratify the 18th Amendment to the Constitution, which established Prohibition. In 1935, rock-and-roll legend Elvis Presley was born in Tupelo, Miss. In 1959, Charles de Gaulle was inaugurated as president of France’s Fifth Republic. In 1973, the Paris peace talks between the United States and North Vietnam resumed. In 1982, American Telephone and Telegraph settled the Justice Department’s antitrust lawsuit against it by agreeing to divest itself of the 22 Bell System companies. In 1989, 47 people were killed when a British Midland Boeing 737400 carrying 126 people crashed in central England. In 1994, Tonya Harding won the ladies’ U.S. Figure Skating Championship in Detroit, a day after Nancy Kerrigan dropped out because of the clubbing attack that had injured her right knee. (The U.S. Figure Skating Association later stripped Harding of the title.) In 2003, a commuter plane crashed after takeoff from CharlotteDouglas International Airport in North Carolina, killing all 21 people on board. A Turkish Airlines jet crashed in Turkey, killing 75 people (five passengers survived). In 2011, U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., was shot and critically wounded when a gunman opened fire as the congresswoman met with constituents in Tucson; six other people were killed, 12 others also injured. (Gunman Jared Lee Loughner was sentenced in Nov. 2012 to seven consecutive life sentences, plus 140 years, after pleading guilty to 19 federal charges in the case.) Â

Ten years ago A U.S. Black Hawk medivac helicopter crashed near Fallujah, Iraq, killing all nine soldiers aboard. Libya agreed to compensate family members of victims of a 1989 bombing of a French passenger plane over the Niger desert that killed 170 people.

Lawmakers must balance TVA says peak spending and demands power was second Associated Press

JACKSON — Mississippi lawmakers gaveled their 2014 session to order at noon Tuesday. They have a busy three months ahead, but they're getting off to a slow start. “We'll meet and greet today and fight tomorrow,� joked Rep. Preston Sullivan, D-Okolona. No bills were posted to the legislative website before the session, so it wasn't possible for the public to read the specific proposals that will be debated. More than 100 bills appeared on the site shortly after the session started, but many more are expected before the Jan. 20 bill filing deadline. In most sessions, at least 2,000 bills are filed, though only a small fraction of them become law. Leaders say they'll look for ways to reduce spending on prisons. They could argue over Medicaid expansion, though it's not expected to pass. Republican Gov. Phil Bryant says he wants to start drug testing for welfare recipients.

Lawmakers face an early April deadline to finish a state budget, and the new fiscal year starts July 1. “Since we have a bit more money than we've had the past few years, you'll have a lot of people with their hands out,� Sen. Dean Kirby, R-Pearl, said Tuesday. “We just need to make sure we fund what's needed and no more.� Even as revenues continue to rise, some leaders are emphasizing holding down new spending and getting away from using “one-time money,� such as winnings from lawsuit settlements, to pay for ongoing state expenses. Bryant issued a report Monday calling for more efforts to make sure government spending produces results. He listed several goals, including reducing the state's unemployment rate to 7.5 percent by 2017. It was 8.6 percent in November, the most recent number available. Bryant also said he wants to expand teachers' merit pay to 70 percent of school districts

by 2018. Only four of the 151 school districts, or 2.6 percent, use it now. For several months in 2013, judges, prosecutors, lawmakers and other elected officials met to discuss ways to make the prison system less expensive and more efficient. The 21-member group made several recommendations, including guarantying that nonviolent offenders serve at least 25 percent and violent offenders serve at least 50 percent of their sentences and expanding the use of drug courts, where offenders are often ordered into a treatment program rather than prison. Two House committees will start examining some of the recommendations Wednesday. Sen. Brice Wiggins, R-Pascagoula, who served on the study group, said he's optimistic that lawmakers will enact many of them. “I've spoken to prosecutors, judges and citizens and I think they want us to do it,� Wiggins said Tuesday. “It's about good, efficient government and also public safety.�

The utility had asked local power companies to try to reduce power usage, but by late morning, demand was decreasing. A TVA spokesman said the utility is was no longer requesting conservation measures from customers. However, TVA was continuing in-house conservation measures. TVA is the nation’s largest public utility, supplying power to about 9 million people in Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Kentucky, Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia.

Associated Press

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — The Tennessee Valley Authority preliminary figures show demand for power at 9 a.m. EST on Tuesday reached the second highest winter peak in TVA history. According to the utility, preliminary power demand reached 32,460 megawatts as temperatures averaged 4 degrees across the TVA region. That is 112 megawatts less than the record winter demand set on Jan. 16, 2009, when temperatures averaged 9 degrees.

Corinth, Miss.

Ideology vs. reality French President Francois Hollande has been confronted by the glaring light of reality -sort of. On New Year’s Day, as his massive tax increases began taking effect, Hollande, a Cal member of the Socialist Party, Thomas admitted that taxes in France have become “too heavy, much Columnist too heavy.” Indeed, as of Jan. 1, French households now must contend with a new value added tax on many goods and services and, writes International Business Times, “French companies will be required to pay 50 percent tax on all employee salaries in excess of 1 million euros. ... The effective tax rate will amount to 75 percent.” Unemployment, which Hollande promised to reduce, has risen to nearly 11 percent. Some companies and wealthy people have left France in search of businessfriendly environments. More will surely follow unless Hollande’s rhetoric is followed by actual tax reductions. Hollande’s head-on collision with reality is reminiscent of President Bill Clinton’s remarks in 1995 at a campaign fundraiser in Houston: “Probably there are people in this room still mad at me ... because you think I raised your taxes too much. It might surprise you to know that I think I raised them too much, too.” Neither Hollande (so far), nor Clinton, followed up on their remarks by cutting taxes. Like many other politicians, these men tried to have it both ways. The next political leader who will be forced to adjust his left-wing ideology to reality is the new mayor of New York City, Bill de Blasio, who has proposed a tax on the wealthy to fund universal pre-K education. He, too, thinks raising taxes on the successful is the way to prosperity for the poor. He should pick up the phone and ask Hollande how that is working for him, as Hollande’s approval ratings are sinking faster than President Obama’s. Even better, he might recall Calvin Coolidge’s remark: “Don’t expect to build up the weak by pulling down the strong.” Penalize success and prosperity and you get less of it. Subsidize bad decision-making by giving taxpayer money to the poor, and you may well undermine initiative and responsibility and create new generations of poor. The left in America and France have gained political power by appealing to voters’ emotions, but when they achieve power their ideology harms the very people who voted for them when these programs prove unworkable. This presents conservatives and Republicans with an opportunity, as well as risks. Liberals are allowed to be as ideological as they wish, and the major media and too many among the unfocused public will mostly support them. The left is never told they must compromise their ideology when reality proves them wrong, or “work with Republicans and conservatives” to achieve common goals. That is the trap liberals set for conservatives, who are repeatedly told they must compromise their principles if they hope to win elections, but whose squishy politics then become as unappealing as cold oatmeal. Here is the path Republicans and conservatives must take if they not only want to win, but bring positive change to the country. Instead of debating feelings and ideology with the left (territory on which they almost always lose -- recall “compassionate conservative”), conservatives should hold their opponents accountable. Are their policies producing the results they claim? Is the record debt good for the country? Are agencies performing as their charter demands, and should their budgets be reduced or the agency eliminated if it can’t show results? Every government agency and program should be regularly required to justify, not only its budget, but its very existence. Americans typically hate waste. It is why as children most of us were told to clean our plates because somewhere in the world there were hungry people. Requiring the left to prove their programs and policies are producing outcomes at reasonable cost would shift the debate from ideology and good intentions to reality. This is where conservatives have a distinct advantage if they will embrace it. (Cal Thomas is the host of “After Hours with Cal Thomas” on the FOX News Channel. Readers may e-mail him at

Prayer for today Almighty God, help me to understand that peace does not come in rebellion or grieving, but is obtained through the calm of the soul. Grant that if I may be perplexed or worried to-day, I may have the power to control myself and wait in thy strength. Amen.

A verse to share “These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.” -- 1 John 5:13

Is America going to pot? Smoking Marlboros is now forbidden in Irish bars in New York City. But buying, selling, and smoking marijuana is legal in Colorado. It doesn’t take a weatherman to know which way the wind is blowing. But where are we going? One certain result of the legalization of marijuana is that there are going to be more potheads, more dropouts, and more deaths on highways from those high or stoned -- and more rehab centers. Scores of thousands of Coloradans may relish the freedom they have voted for themselves. But the costs will be borne by society and the families of future victims of potheads behind the wheel. So it has been with alcohol. All of us can recall classmates injured and dead in auto accidents, jobs lost by friends, lives destroyed, and families smashed because of booze. Just as beer opens the door for the young to bourbon, scotch, gin and vodka, marijuana is the gateway drug, the escalator drug, to cocaine and heroin. And if marijuana sales bring in the revenue Colorado envisions, other states will follow suit, and some state will become the first to decriminalize cocaine.

It was half a century ago that pot first began to replace alcohol as the drug of choice for Pat baby boomBuchanan ers arriving on campuses Columnist in 1964. Yet not until the boomers began moving onto Social Security rolls did the first state legalize marijuana for personal enjoyment. Yet, as with same-sex marriage, now legal in 16 or 17 states, the legalization of marijuana appears to be an idea whose time has come. What does this tell us about our country? America is not only diversifying racially, ethnically and religiously as a result of continuous mass immigration, legal and illegal. We are disuniting morally, culturally, and politically. Not so very long ago, the U.S. government enforced Prohibition, pronounced smoking a menace to the national health, punished gambling as organized crime, and declared a war on drugs. Now the government has shouldered aside organized crime to take over, tax, and regulate the rackets. At federal, state and local levels, the government rakes off vast revenues from taxes on booze, bars, cigarettes, casi-

nos and, coming soon, online poker. In the 1965 decision Griswold v. Connecticut, the Warren Court discovered a constitutional right to privacy and overturned a state law prohibiting the sale of contraceptives. Contraceptives are now handed out to high schoolers and a right to contraception has been written into Obamacare. Abortion and homosexuality used to be scandalous. Now they are constitutional rights and popular social causes, and same-sex marriage is the civil rights cause of the 21st century. As Justice Antonin Scalia noted, if tradition, religious beliefs, or a community animus against conduct is insufficient to restrict private behavior, upon what legal ground do we stand upon to outlaw polygamy, adult incest, or prostitution? Yet traditional America is not rolling over and playing dead. “Abortion rights” face new restrictions in state after state, as a new generation appears more pro-life than its parents. And as the A&E network discovered when it sought to suspend “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson for his biblical reflections, the silent majority remains faithful to the traditional

morality. And while a libertarianism of the left appears ascendant, there is also a rising and militant libertarianism of the right. We have seen it manifest in the “stand your ground” and concealed-carry laws, opposition to background checks for gun owners, and ferocious resistance to the outlawing of assault rifles and 30-round magazines. In that Colorado where pot is now legal, state senators have been recalled for insufficient devotion to Second Amendment rights. And there are bubbling secessionist movements in states like Colorado, of folks who would like to separate themselves from places like Denver. Undeniably, the claims of the individual to maximum autonomy and freedom appear triumphant over the claims of community. The clamor of me is prevailing over the claims of us. But in yielding, America has not only tossed overboard the moral compass that guided us for two centuries. We no longer even agree on what is “True North” anymore. (Daily Corinthian columnist Pat Buchanan is an American conservative political commentator, author, syndicated columnist, politician and broadcaster.)

Right and left of the Hispanic vote It is widely accepted that Hispanics will become a larger share of the American electorate in the years to come. This is a matter of simple arithmetic. Less than onetenth of adults counted in the 2010 Census classified themselves as “Hispanic.” But one-quarter of children were similarly classified. Many of them the offspring of illegal aliens, were born in the U.S. and thus entitled to citizenship. It’s true that Hispanics may not be as large a share of voters as is sometimes projected. There has been zero net migration from Mexico to this country since 2007, and, given advances in Mexico, immigration at the 1982-2007 levels may never resume. In any case, Hispanics are bound to form some larger percentage of the electorate than the 10 percent recorded in the 2012 exit poll, and one that inevitably will be targeted by both parties and many candidates. Which is why it may be helpful to expose two myths about Hispanic voters advanced by both the political

right and the political left over the past few years. One, advanced hopefully by the Michael right, is that Barone H i s p a n i c s are highly Columnist religious and family oriented, and as a result are cultural conservatives. The picture these analysts paint looks much like 1950s Irish-American Catholics, regular Mass attenders with large families. But in fact, Hispanic rates of divorce, unmarried motherhood and single-parent families are significantly higher than among whites. Recent polling shows that Hispanics are as accepting of same-sex marriage as most Americans and that opposition to abortion among Hispanics is higher than average only among immigrants and not among their children and grandchildren. “Family value” themes may resonate among the one-sixth of Hispanics who are evangelical Protestants, but not so much among oth-

ers. A second myth about Hispanic voters, advanced by many on the left, but also ruefully by some on the right, is that they are big government liberals. This finds backing in surveys where Hispanics are more likely than average to say that they favor a bigger government providing more services and less likely to favor a smaller government providing fewer services. In the 2012 campaign, this translated into support for Obamacare. Obama campaign strategists noted that the law was unpopular among voters generally, but evoked very positive responses from Hispanics. The numbers look different now. Since the Obamacare rollout, Gallup’s numbers show that the president’s job approval has declined more among Hispanics -- 23 percent -- than any other demographic group. Hispanics with roots in societies where government is crony-ridden and corrupt may have expected government that would be trustworthy and efficient in the United States. Hey, who

doesn’t want free stuff from such a government? But practice proved different. The Obamacare rollout has not produced the favorable results they may have expected. People tend to form their political attitudes over the years as they experience how political parties’ policies work out in practice. People who have been voting for many years tend to have fixed attitudes because they already have plenty of experience, and one new episode doesn’t usually make much difference. Most Hispanic voters, in contrast, don’t have years of experience voting in the United States. They may be more susceptible to revising their attitudes in light of recent events. Which is to say, the Hispanic vote is up for grabs.

Air Force helicopter crashes, killing four LONDON — A U.S. Air Force Pave Hawk helicopter crashed in a coastal area of eastern England during a training mission on Tuesday night, killing all four crew members aboard, officials said. Lt. Keenan Kunst at the Royal Air Force station in Lakenheath, Suffolk County, which hosts U.S. Air force units and personnel, said in a telephone interview that the helicopter went down in the coastal village of Cley, near the base. He said the aircraft was based there and on a training mission. In Washington, a U.S. defense official said the accident killed the four U.S. Air Force crew members aboard. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the crash publicly. Police in Norfolk County cordoned off the area where the crash occurred, and several vehicles from the fire brigade, coast guard and police are at the scene. Pave Hawks are often used for combat search and rescue missions, mainly to recover downed air crew members or other personnel.

Finishing touches put on spending bill WASHINGTON — Funding for implementing the new health care law and other sticking points remain, but ne-

gotiators reported significant progress Tuesday on a $1.1 trillion spending bill to fund the government through September. “We are looking at narrowing the differences, looking at ... how we can compromise without capitulation on both sides,” said Senate Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Barbara Mikulski, D-Md. After a meeting of the four principal negotiators — the top Democrats and Republicans on the House and Senate Appropriations committees — Mikulski was cautiously optimistic of reaching agreement on the massive bill later this week in hopes of a vote next week. “Our subcommittee chairmen have really done 90 percent of the work. We are now at 10 percent, but this last 10 percent, like in any negotiation, is the toughest,” Mikulski said. A top aide accompanying Mikulski back

to her office told reporters that the budgets for the Pentagon and the Commerce, Justice, Agriculture, Housing and Urban Development, Veterans Affairs and Transportation departments are “virtually wrapped up.” But the two sides remain at odds over funding to implement so-called Obamacare and a 2010 overhaul of financial regulations, and they’re still sorting through more than 130 policy items known as “riders” in Washingtonspeak, many of which are backed by conservatives seeking to derail Obama administration environmental and labor regulations. Among the differences is giving the administration flexibility to certify that Egypt qualifies for U.S. military aid despite a law that bans such assistance after coups, said Sen. Lindsey Graham, the top Republican on the foreign aid panel.

State sees record temps, few problems

OXFORD — The Oxford School District is investigating how a student was left on a bus after morning drop-offs on Tuesday. School district spokesman Kelly Graeber says in a news release that the student, whose age and school were not released, appeared to be unharmed when found on the bus. Graeber says the student’s parents were notified immediately. Graeber says the district is reviewing safety procedures with all school bus drivers Tuesday.

JACKSON — There were record low temperatures in many parts of Mississippi on Tuesday morning, but officials say there have been few reports of major weather-related problems. Joanne Culin is a meteorologist with the Jackson office of the National Weather Service, which covers central Mississippi. She says all the reporting cites in that coverage area broke daily low temperature records Tuesday morning, but the frigid temperatures didn’t break records for the month of January. The lowest temperature

Ex superintendent reports to prison JACKSON — Former Greenville Public School District superintendent Harvey Franklin has reported to prison to begin serving more than six years in a federal bribery case related to a $1.4 million reading program for children. Federal Bureau of Prisons spokesman Chris Burke says the 57-yearold Franklin arrived Monday at a minimum security prison in Montgomery, Ala. Franklin pleaded guilty in August 2012. He was sentenced to 76 months on Nov. 13 for taking more than $270,000 in bribes to influence the school board to use the program. He also was ordered to pay $1.2 million in restitution. Franklin’s lawyer, Julie Ann Epps, filed a notice on Dec. 6 that they are appealing the case to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans.

Fire destroys church in Choctaw County MATHISTON — Authorities in Choctaw County say fire destroyed a church early Tuesday.

Legislature asked to OK road dedication PASCAGOULA — Jackson County supervisors will ask the state Legislature to name a portion of Mississippi Highway 63 after a Wade man who was killed in the Vietnam War. Supervisor Barry Cumbest tells The Mississippi Press that a one-mile stretch of the highway would be named in honor of Army Sgt. John E. Wells. Wells died June 4, 1970, in the Quang Ngai province of Vietnam. He was 20 years old when he died. According to the Vietnam Veteran Memorial Fund website, Wells was killed while alerting another soldier about the start of a mortar attack. The stretch of highway to be named in his honor to begin at Freeman

Road and stretch about one mile south, near where Wells lived.

Rolling Fork mayor indicted for fraud JACKSON — The mayor of a small town in the Mississippi Delta has been indicted on false pretense and mail fraud charges related to invoices for grants to rehabilitate houses. A Sharkey County grand jury charged Rolling Fork Mayor Eldridge “Butch” Walker in two separate indictments Monday, each containing two counts. He did not immediately respond to phone messages on Tuesday. It wasn’t immediately clear if he has a lawyer. The indictments say Walker sent two fraudulent $500 invoices related to two properties to Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas, which was issuing grants to rehabilitate houses. He was doing business as Walker Construction Walker served as mayor in the past, but was unseated in 2009. He was elected again in June. Rolling Fork is a town of about 2,100 people.

Recipe for roads goes beyond salt BUFFALO, N.Y. — A splash of beet juice, a dollop of molasses, a squeeze of cheese brine. In the coldest weather, the recipe for safer roads often goes beyond the usual sprinkling of salt. Across the nation’s snow belt, transportation officials are in the market for cheap and environmentally friendly ways to make rock salt work better by keeping it on the roads longer and melting ice at lower temperatures. Plain salt is largely ineffective below 16 degrees. Additives can keep it working in temperatures as low as minus 25. “This winter, it’s been a godsend to be able to do that,” said Leland Smithson, the ice and snow expert at the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials. “It’s been

so cold.” In Milwaukee, road crews are experimenting with plentiful cheese brine, a leftover from cheesemaking. New York and Pennsylvania are among states trying sugar beet juice, while molasses and potato juice are flavoring roads elsewhere.

Senate sends benefits bill past first hurdle WASHINGTON — Election-year legislation to revive expired federal jobless benefits unexpectedly cleared an early hurdle on Tuesday, offering a hint of bipartisan compromise in Congress and a glimmer of hope to the long-term jobless and their families. “Let’s get this done,” implored President Barack Obama at the White House, shortly after six Republicans sided with Democrats on a 6037 Senate vote to keep the measure alive. Even so, the fate of the three-month reinstatement remained un-

certain in an atmosphere of intense partisanship at the dawn of an election year. The two parties have made it clear they intend to battle for the support of millions of voters who have suffered economically through the worst recession in decades and the slow, plodding recovery that has followed. The often-cited phrase is “income disparity” — the gap between the rich and the economically squeezed. Democrats are expected to follow the effort on jobless benefits with another pocketbook measure, a proposal to increase the federal minimum wage.

Burst of al-Qaida strength tests Obama WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is confronted with a recent burst of strength by alQaida that is chipping away at the remains of Mideast stability, testing his hands-off approach to conflicts in Iraq and Syria at the same time he pushes to keep thousands of U.S. forces in Afghanistan. Al-Qaida-backed fighters have fought hard

against other rebel groups in Syria, in a sideshow to the battle to unseat President Bashar Assad. Across the border in Iraq, they led a surprisingly strong campaign to take two of the cities that U.S. forces suffered heavy losses to protect. This invigorated front highlights the tension between two of Obama’s top foreign policy tenets: to end American involvement in Mideast wars and to eradicate insurgent extremists — specifically al-Qaida. It also raises questions about the future U.S. role in the region if militants overtake American gains made during more than a decade of war. In Afghanistan, Obama already has decided to continue the fight against extremists, as long as Afghan President Hamid Karzai signs off on a joint security agreement. Obama seeks to leave as many as 10,000 troops there beyond December, extending what already has become the longest U.S. war. But officials say he would be willing to withdraw completely at the end of this year if the security agreement cannot be finalized.

Check out these warning signs of potential abusers DEAR ABBY: When my daughter was 20, she met a guy who one minute showered her with roses and the next would beat her up. She stayed with him thinking she could change him, and became pregnant. On her 21st birthday, she tried to get away from him. He chased her and went to punch her in the stomach. The blow landed, hitting the baby in the head and killed the child. Abby, once a beater, always a beater. I hope all women in abusive relationships will see this. My daughter is fine now, married and expecting. I pray for the women and girls out there who are going through what she once had to. -- PENNSYLVANIA MOM DEAR PENNSYLVANIA MOM: I’m glad you wrote, because your letter reminds me that it has been some time since I printed the warning signs of an abuser. Here they are: (1) PUSHES FOR QUICK INVOLVEMENT: Comes on strong, claiming, “I’ve never felt loved like this by anyone.” An abuser pressures the new partner for an exclusive commitment almost immediately. (2) JEALOUS: Excessively possessive; calls constantly or visits unexpectedly; prevents you from going to work because “you might meet someone”; checks the mileage on your car. (3) CONTROLLING: If you are late, interrogates you intensively

about whom you talked to and where you were; keeps all the money; insists you ask permission Abigail to go anyor do Van Buren where anything. (4) UNREDear Abby ALISTIC EXPECTATIONS: Expects you to be the perfect mate and meet his or her every need. (5) ISOLATION: Tries to isolate you from family and friends; accuses people who are your supporters of “causing trouble.” The abuser may deprive you of a phone or car, or try to prevent you from holding a job. (6) BLAMES OTHERS FOR PROBLEMS OR MISTAKES: It’s always someone else’s fault if something goes wrong. (7) MAKES OTHERS RESPONSIBLE FOR HIS OR HER FEELINGS: The abuser says, “You make me angry” instead of “I am angry.” (8) HYPERSENSITIVITY: Is easily insulted, claiming hurt feelings when he or she is really mad. Rants about the injustice of things that are just a part of life. (9) CRUELTY TO ANIMALS OR CHILDREN: Kills or punishes animals brutally. Also may expect children to do things that are far

beyond their ability or may tease them until they cry. Sixty-five percent of abusers who beat their partners will also abuse children. (10) “PLAYFUL” USE OF FORCE DURING SEX: Enjoys throwing you down or holding you down against your will during sex; finds the idea of rape exciting. (11) VERBAL ABUSE: Constantly criticizes or says blatantly cruel things; degrades, curses, calls you ugly names. This may also involve sleep deprivation, waking you with relentless verbal abuse. (12) RIGID GENDER ROLES: Expects you to serve, obey, remain at home. (13) SUDDEN MOOD SWINGS: Switches from sweet to violent in minutes. (14) PAST BATTERING: Admits to hitting a mate in the past, but says the person “made” him (or her) do it. (15) THREATS OF VIOLENCE: Says things like, “I’ll break your neck” or “I’ll kill you,” and then dismisses them with “I didn’t really mean it.” Readers, if you feel you are at risk, contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 800799-7233 or www.thehotline. org. (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 or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.)

Horoscopes ARIES (March 21-April 19). Rest assured, you don’t have to go to the expense of traveling far and wide to find excitement. New people bring even more adventures than do new places. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your heart is so big that you love people who haven’t even been born yet. Metaphorically, you’ll be planting trees that never will be big enough to shade you in your lifetime, but generations to come will benefit. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your tendency to overestimate the talents of those you admire goes hand in hand with the bad habit of underestimating your own talent. Stop analyzing, put your head down and work. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Love isn’t an idea; it’s a feeling that produces ideas. If it were an idea, you could think it and fall in love with anyone. But you can’t force yourself to love someone any more than you can force someone to love you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It’s not that you’re so limited in what you can and can’t do today, but your preferences narrow down your choices. This is a good thing. It’s what gives you your style. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). “Perfection paralysis” won’t immobilize you willy-nilly. It only freezes you out of doing certain tasks: the ones you think you’re supposed to do perfectly because you believe it matters bigtime. It doesn’t. Be free. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re in a private mood, and you don’t want people to know what time you woke up, who your friends are and what you did last Friday night. They’ll ask anyway unless you lead the conversation. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll influence the feelings of others by refusing to tell them how to feel. You respect every person’s right to his or her own reaction, and you look forward to being surprised at what that reaction might be.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Fighting ideas is like fighting clouds. You can punch and kick, but what difference will it make? The way to impact the world is by tackling the tangible items. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You are part of a large and diverse group, but you also are uniquely yourself. You may spend the better part of the day acting toward the purposes of the collective. First, you should take the time to address your individual needs. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You actually may try to be boring on purpose to throw someone off the trail of who you really are. You just don’t want the attention now, and that’s healthy. No one should need all of the attention all of the time. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll be trying to get something important done, and this involves others. Too bad. It would be easier and faster if it didn’t, or if you could control the others.

The Federal Reserve is expected to report that consumers eased back on borrowing in November. Consumers increased their borrowing in October by $18.2 billion to $3.08 trillion, driven by growth in auto and student loans, as well as the biggest rise in credit card debt in five months. Economists anticipate the Fed will report today that consumer borrowing declined in November from the previous month.

Following the meeting, the Fed announced it will cut its monthly bond purchases to $75 billion from $85 billion starting this month. The central bank also suggested that the purchases could end by late 2014, evidence that the policymakers think the job market and economy will continue to improve with less help from the Fed.

Fireball Roberts

racers the best he could, and tried not to let it affect him on the track. “I always tried to put it out of my mind,” he said. “I tried not to think about the sad part of it.” He said that during that time, as often happens in motorsports, the speed of the cars outran the safety features of the day. “If you look at safety in the cars now and safety in the cars back then … holy cow,” White said. “I never even Ned Jarrett wore a shoulder harness until 1963, and the only reason I had a shoulder harness then was I got a car that already had one in it. “We ran regular gas tanks with fiberglass around them so rocks wouldn’t knock holes in them. A fuel cell like they run today would have saved Fireball Roberts’ life.” But, he doesn’t blame anyBilly Wade one for the safety issues of 1964. “NASCAR goes through learning periods,” he said. “Things happen, and they learn from them and make racing safer. “They’ve come so far, and they’ve done it by looking at cars and determining what broke and what broke first.” As for White and his 1964 season — the longtime Chevrolet driver found himself without a ride as Chevrolet scaled back its support of NASCAR teams like his. “Nothing developed at all,” he said. “I had no place to go.” But he soon landed a ride in select races in one of Bud Moore’s Mercuries. White had several good finishes in Moore’s Mercury, including a third-place run at Charlotte Motor Speedway and a fifth in what turned out to be his final Cup start, at Atlanta. He was leading with 27 laps to go when he drove down pit road for his final pit stop. But when the crew jacked up the car, the engine died. A lap was lost, and he was unable to make it up. “It might have been partly my fault,” he said. “The crew was signaling me to come in for fuel, but I stayed out several more laps thinking I might get a caution and ran it low on fuel.” Ford executives decided to put Darel Deringer in the No. 16, and White never raced in Cup again. He did campaign a Sportsman car in 1965. He ran 32 races, winning 20, finishing second 10 times and falling out of two. But Sportsman races weren’t as lucrative as Cup, and by the end of 1965, the money to race just wasn’t there. Then White got an offer from Atlanta car dealer Bob Maddox to be service manager for his new dealership. White had a steady income — more than some years he raced — and quickly put racing in his rearview mirror. “I never went back around any races,” he said. “I just got away from it.” For more than 20 years, White stayed away from the tracks and his fellow racers. But once he returned — for an event at Atlanta in 1989 — he’s been a regular sight since. Now he’s back in the company of people like Richard Petty, who he knew well back in the day. White said he never envisioned anyone winning 200 NASCAR races, but wasn’t too surprised when Petty did it. “He was learning when I raced against him,” White said. “And he was still learning 10 years after I quit,” White said.

Three important names in racing die

Wendell Scott

NASCAR archives

With 2014 underway, we mark the 50th year since the 1964 NASCAR season — one of the most significant in the history of the sport. It was a season of triumph and tragedy, a changing of the guard and the start of some serious work on racing safety. The milestone events of the 1964 season actually began in the fall of 1963 — at that time, the NASCAR seasons didn’t line Rex White up with the calendar. In the third race of the ’64 season, at Jacksonville, Fla., on Dec. 1, 1963, Wendell Scott took the victory to become the first — and so far, only — African-American driver to win in NASCAR’s elite division. The second race of ’64 — a 417-mile run at the road course at Augusta, Ga. — proved to be much more significant than anyone realized at the time. The sport’s most popular driver at that time, Fireball Roberts, took the win, but it would be his last. All told, before the circuit returned to Augusta again, five of the top six finishers — including Roberts — would die of injuries suffered in racing crashes. They included runnerup Dave MacDonald, third-finishing Billy Wade, Joe Weatherly fourth-place Joe Weatherly and sixth-place Jimmy Pardue. Only fifth-finishing Ned Jarrett survived to race in 1965. Weatherly was the sport’s two-time and defending champion when he died in a crash at Riverside, Calif., and Wade was the 1963 Rookie of the Year when he perished in a crash during tire testing at Daytona in January 1964. In addition, two of the sport’s all-time greats, Glen Wood and Rex White, left the sport in the prime of their careers in ’64, with Wood choosing to put other drivers in his No. 21 Fords, and White taking a job as service manager of a Chrysler-Plymouth dealership in Atlanta. Both nearly won their final drives in the series now known as Sprint Cup, as Wood started on the pole and finished second at Starkey Speedway in Virginia, and White led until his car ran out of fuel on pit road on his final pit stop at Atlanta. It was also in 1964 that Richard Petty emerged as a dominant driver. He got his first superspeedway victory in the 1964 Daytona 500, his first of a record seven wins in the Great American Race. He also got the first of his seven championships that year, a record he still shares with the late Dale Earnhardt. Petty hasn’t raced since the 1992 season, but still holds the alltime record for wins at 200, poles at 123, wins in a season (27), consecutive wins (10) and starts (1,185). White, now 84, had a relatively brief Cup career. He ran just 233 races, but had 28 wins, 36 poles, 110 top-5 finishes and won the 1960 championship. In a recent interview, he talked about the drivers who lost their lives 50 years ago, and about his own decision to leave the sport after just nine seasons. White said he counted the lost heroes, especially Weatherly and Roberts, among his best friends away from racing and among his strongest competitors on the track. He said Weatherly, who was known as the “Clown Prince” of the NASCAR circuit, was just that. “He was a big clown all the time,” White said. “There was always something going on with him, and he liked to razz you a lot.” White said there was a fun side to Roberts as well. “I liked him,” he said. “You could aggravate him, but he was a smart guy; had a good education. “He used his head and guided himself into good rides and good equipment.” White said he visited Roberts, who was badly burned in a fiery crash at Charlotte Motor Speedway, several weeks afterward. “I went to see him in Presbyterian Hospital,” White said. “I was almost sure he was going to be all right. He was in pretty good spirits, and then two weeks later, he passed away.” Roberts died from burns, pneumonia and blood poisoning. White was also close to Billy Wade, who died in a tire test at Daytona the first week of 1965, and knew Jimmy Pardue, who died in a tire test at Charlotte, and Dave MacDonald, who perished in a fiery wreck in the 1964 Indianapolis 500. White said he dealt with the deaths of his friends and fellow

Rex White remembers fellow NASCAR drivers on 50th anniversary of season of triumph and tragedy

Three people who played important roles in NASCAR racing died this past week. Andy Granatelli, the former CEO of STP motor oil company, died Dec. 29 at age 90. Besides being a famed driver, car owner and sponsor of races at every level up to the Indianapolis 500, Granatelli signed one of the most visible sponsorship deals ever in NASCAR. His company sponsored the cars driven by Richard Petty, and the deal brought it great publicity, paving the way for future sponsorships of all NASCAR drivers and teams. “Andy was one of the best at public relations and marketing in all of motorsports,” Richard Petty said in a statement. “He was ahead of his time and set the standard for selling his products. We still enjoy our relationship with STP today, and it was our meetings with Andy that started it all. He was really determined about how he wanted to market his product, and he never stopped wanting to get his way, but that’s what made him successful, too.” Dennis Wood, the man credited with saving Phoenix International Raceway, died Dec. 26 at age 75. He purchased the track in 1976 and built up the facility before selling it in 1985 to Buddy Jobe. PIR President Bryan Sperber said Wood was a huge influence on racing in the Valley. “Dennis was an icon in motor racing and played a critical role in PIR’s history,” Sperber told the Arizona Republic. “Racing lost a great one, whose impact will live on.” George Tet, who real name was Tetsuo Fuchigami, died Dec. 31 at age 90. He was the first Japanese racer to drive in the series now known as Sprint Cup. He ran at Charlotte Motor Speedway in 1960 and in the Daytona 500 in 1961. He was also known for racing Modifieds in the Northeast, and won races at tracks like Roosevelt Stadium in Jersey City, N.J., and Dexter Park in Queens, N.Y.

Harvick is moving to the No. 4 Chevrolet at StewartHaas Racing. He’ll be joined there by Kurt Busch, who will run a No. 41 Chevrolet. Busch’s old ride, the No. 78 Chevrolet at Furniture Row Racing, is now held by Martin Truex Jr., who lost his ride in the No. 56 Toyota at Michael Waltrip Racing after the team was found to have manipulated the finishing order of the regular-season finale at Richmond International Raceway. Ryan Newman has left the No. 39 Chevrolet at Stewart-Haas Racing and will take over the No. 31 Chevrolet at Richard Childress Racing. That car’s previous driver, Jeff Burton, plans to run a limited schedule for Michael Waltrip Racing in a No. 66 Toyota while also preparing for a full-time role as commentator for NBC, which is returning to the NASCAR scene in 2015.

Brian Vickers is set to become the full-time driver of the No. 55 Toyota at Michael Waltrip Racing, after that ride was shared by Vickers, Mark Martin and Waltrip in recent seasons. Michael Annett, along with sponsor Flying J, is taking over the No. 7 Chevrolet at Tommy Baldwin Racing, leaving Dave Blaney apparently without a ride. Kyle Larson will drive the No. 42 Toyota for owner Chip Ganassi, as the previous driver, Juan Pablo Montoya, moves to an IndyCar ride with Roger Penske’s team. And Justin Allgaier and crew chief, Steve Addington, appear to be teaming up on the No. 51 Chevrolet team, which was purchased last season by Harry Scott Jr., from longtime owner James Finch, who plans to run the Daytona 500 and several more races with Bobby Labonte as his driver.

Two of NASCAR’s most famous families and one of the sport’s longtime sponsors are teaming up to compete for the Nationwide Series championship. Chase Elliott, the 18-year-old son of former Sprint Cup champion Bill Elliott, has been hired to drive a No. 9 Chevrolet for JR Motorsports, co-owned by Dale Earnhardt Jr. Atlanta-based NAPA Auto Parts will be the team’s sponsor. For those who remember the days when Bill Elliott and the late Dale Earnhardt tangled on the race track, the pairing might seem odd, but Elliott said that putting his son in an Earnhardt car is a perfect match. “It’s a great opportunity for Chase and for JR Motorsports, and it’s good for NASCAR as a whole,” Elliott said, adding that any differences he may have had with the late Earnhardt over the years were only in the heat of battle. “I didn’t always agree with his tactics on the race track, but off the track there were no problems. We both came up in the sport having to work for what we got. I couldn’t be happier.” Chase Elliott, who has been racing under a driver development contract with Rick Hendrick, who is a part owner of JR Motorsports, will take his first drive in the No. 9 during a test session at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday. For NAPA, the sponsorship of a driver from the company’s home state brings the auto parts giant back into NASCAR after a brief exit following the race-fixing scandal at Richmond International Raceway that involved the sponsor’s former team, Michael Waltrip Racing and driver Martin Truex Jr. And the deal with Elliott and JR Motorsports positions the company for a long-term relationship with Elliott, who is expected by many to be ready for Sprint Cup competition in a few years. Elliott isn’t the only driver showing up for Daytona testing in a new environment. Reigning Nationwide Series champion Austin Dillon is moving up to Sprint Cup to drive the No. 3

No. 14 Wildcats open SEC vs MSU Associated Press

LEXINGTON, Ky. — Kentucky coach John Calipari made sure his young Wildcats spent a lot of time together over Christmas break improving weaknesses on offense and defense, while becoming more cohesive. Calipari’s hope is that the No. 14 Wildcats (10-3) are so tired of seeing him and each other in practice that they take out their aggression on Mississippi State (10-3) in Wednesday night’s Southeastern Conference opener for both teams. “I’m ready to see some new faces on the court,” Kentucky freshman guard Andrew Harrison said Tuesday. “I wouldn’t say I’m sick of (practice) and it’s not over, but it’s going to be fun to get out there and play against some new competition.” Kentucky hasn’t played since beating No. 12 Louisville 73-66 on Dec. 28. The Wildcats now want to apply what they learned about passing, setting picks and defensive stances to the most important part of the season against a conference determined to humble their talented roster.

First up are the Bulldogs, who have won five of six and have matched last year’s win total. “It was really good for us as a team on the court and off the court to learn about each other spend more time together,” Harrison’s twin brother, Aaron, said. “I’m excited to get league play started. (The) SEC is great basketball, so I’m ready just to get everything going.” Calipari has consistently said that one of his biggest challenges with this highly praised freshmen class has been breaking bad habits from high school, particularly with their mental and physi-

cal approach to defense. An ongoing process on offense is getting them to pass first instead of shoot when they have the ball and figuring how to create shots as they look for passes. “It flips (the script) on them how they’ve always played,” Calipari said. “The way they’ve played, and this is every high school player, is ‘I am going to score this ball and if I can’t score it, I’m going to throw it to you. But before I do, I’m going to take one more look to see if I can score this thing.’ “The other way is, ‘I have it, I’m a passer and when I don’t have it, I’m down ready to

score now.’ ... They’re making strides. It’s just getting them to think different.” To that end the coach used team bonding off the court with the goal of team building on it. The Wildcats’ extended break included regular team meals and outings around practice twice a day. Calipari has seen players grow closer and communicate more little by little, glimpses of which appeared down the stretch against Louisville. Despite playing most of the second half without leading scorer Julius Randle (leg cramps), Kentucky stayed together and held off the Cardinals for their first win over a top-25 team in four tries. Calipari has been trying to get the Wildcats to remember everything they did to seal that game and carry it over to SEC play. “The Louisville game definitely opened our eyes that everyone has to play hard, play together and buy in to win,” Aaron Harrison said. “That really helped our team confidence and all around.” Kentucky’s next step is enPlease see MSU | 11A

No. 1 Florida State beats No. 2 Auburn BY RALPH D. RUSSO AP College Football Writer

PASADENA, Calif. — For all Jameis Winston had done as a redshirt freshman for Florida State, he never had to pull the Seminoles from the brink of defeat. In the biggest game of the year, down by four with 79 seconds left, the Heisman Trophy winner put together the drive of his life, and the Seminoles proved they could take a punch to win a championship. Winston threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Kelvin Benjamin with 13 seconds left and No. 1 Florida State beat No. 2 Auburn 34-31 to win the BCS national title game on Monday night. “There’s a lot of heart and guts down in Tallahassee, too,” coach Jimbo Fisher said. The Bowl Championship Series went out with a bang, with one of the best title games in its 16-year history. It will be replaced by a four-

team playoff next season. And the Southeastern Conference’s seven-year winning streak in college football’s biggest game was snapped by the Atlantic Coast Conference school that played in the first three BCS title games but hadn’t been back since. Florida State was voted a unanimous No. 1 in the final AP Top 25. Auburn finished second. Winston struggled much of the night but was near perfect when the Seminoles (14-0) needed it most, going 6 for 7 for 77 yards on the game-winning 80-yard drive. “It was the best football game he’s played all year,” Fisher said, “and I’ll tell you why, because for three quarters he was up and down and he fought. “And to pull it out in the atmosphere and environment and with what was on the line tonight, to me if that’s not a great player, I don’t know who is.”

Winston was 20 for 35 for 237 yards and two fourthquarter touchdown passes. He zipped the Seminoles down the field on the final drive, with a 49-yard catch and run from Rashad Greene. Florida State also got help from Auburn, too. A pass interference penalty on Chris Davis on third-and-8 from the 10 gave Florida State a first down at the 2. “Thought it was great defense. That’s all I can say,” Davis said, adding, the officials “should have just let us play.” On the next play Winston flipped high to the 6-foot-5 Benjamin for the touchdown. “Once the ball is in the air on that post route, I’ve got to go get it, and I did,” Benjamin said. “Simple as that.” There was no miracle finish this time for the turnaround Tigers, who went from 3-9 to SEC champions in their first season under coach Gus Malzahn. They tossed the ball around on one final play, but

it ended with Florida State jumping on a fumble, and the Seminoles sprinting onto the field under a storm of garnet and gold confetti. Florida State scored 21 points in the fourth quarter, and the teams combined for 24 in a breathtaking last 4:42. “It felt storybook again,” Auburn defensive tackle Gabe Wright said. “It really felt like we were going to bring it out again. We’re just on the other end of the stick. It’s usually us going out on the field and celebrating. It’s been a long time since we had an ‘L’ in this locker room.” Auburn won nine straight to get here after starting the season unranked. Tre Mason gave Auburn (12-2) a 31-27 lead with a 37yard touchdown run with 1:19 left after Kermit Whitfield had put Florida State in the lead for the first time since the first quarter with a 100-yard kickPlease see BCS | 11A

Auburn leaves season with high hopes Associated Press

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. — The Auburn Tigers know there’s only one way to top this season. The Tigers came within 13 seconds of completing the biggest turnaround in college football history, winning a national championship and slapping a triumphant ending on a fairytale season. Instead, they were left with a 34-31 defeat to Florida State and contemplating next season’s mission. “To finish it off,” tailback Tre Mason said. “Do whatever it takes to finish. We made it all the way here and we let up off the gas pedal. Next time we need to crank it up to another

gear and finish this thing off right.” It remains to be seen if the Heisman Trophy finalist and near-hero of the title game will be around to help bring that to fruition. Mason is considering joining All-Southeastern Conference left tackle Greg Robinson in leaving early to enter the NFL draft. Robinson announced his decision on Tuesday. Even if Mason turns pro, the Tigers (12-2) won’t be sneaking up on anybody after finishing with a No. 2 ranking. With quarterback Nick Marshall leading the way, Auburn could well be regarded as an SEC and national title

contender again. Certainly, Gus Malzahn’s team raised the bar back to its perch from that 2010 national championship in his first season “We’re going up,” Malzahn said. “The experience that we had and we’ve got most of our guys coming back, recruiting is going great. Our goal is to get back here, and I really believe we’ll do it.” His uptempo offense set school marks for total and rushing yards and became the first SEC team to lead the nation in rushing. The Tigers matched the 2000 Hawaii team for the biggest rebound after going 3-9 in 2012.

Jameis Winston dashed the Tigers’ title hopes with an 80yard drive and 2-yard touchdown pass to Kelvin Benjamin with 13 seconds left. Top receiver Sammie Coates, center Reese Dismukes and leading tackler linebacker Cassanova McKinzy and defensive tackle Gabe Wright are returning. So are promising freshman defensive linemen Carl Lawson and Montravius Adams, and projected defensive starters Jeff Whitaker and Justin Garrett are back after missing the season with injuries. For the first time in Malzahn’s college career, he could

their former manager, Bobby Cox, who was picked for the Hall last month in a separate vote. “They’re the guys that got me this far, that’s for sure,” Cox said. “I’ve got my fingers crossed for both of them.” While Maddux is likely a shoe-in, having won 355 games and four Cy Young awards during his career, Glavine might have a tougher time getting in the first time around despite 305 victories. At some point both should have their names etched at Cooperstown. The only eligible 300-game winner not in the Hall is Roger Clemens, who was passed over in 2012 because of

doping allegations and figures to be left off plenty of ballots this year, as well. Maddux and Glavine never had Clemens’ type of dominating stuff. Instead, they relied on pinpoint control and changing speeds to keep hitters off balance. Laid back and always up for a vulgar joke away from the field, Maddux was a fierce competitor — hence, the nickname — who would often scream obscenities when a pitch didn’t go exactly where he wanted. He approached his craft like an artist, aware that a subtle stroke could wind up being the mark of genius. Maddux spent untold hours

working on his mechanics in the bullpen, constantly seeking the perfect windup, the perfect delivery, the perfect followthrough. “If you do everything mechanically correct, it’s impossible for the ball not to go where you want it,” he once said. “It really is. It’s just like a golf swing. If you make the absolute perfect golf swing, the ball is going to go where you’re aiming it. Pitching is no different.” Maddux won four straight NL Cy Young awards from 1992-95 — Randy Johnson is the only other pitcher to capture four in a row — and produced two of the greatest years ever at the end of that run.

Auburn’s LT Robinson opts for NFL draft Maddux, Glavine look to enter Hall together Associated Press Associated Press

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. — Auburn left tackle Greg Robinson says he’s leaving for the NFL draft. Robinson posted on his Twitter page on Tuesday that he is turning pro. Coach Gus Malzahn says Robinson “played a big part in our success this season and I appreciate everything he did as an Auburn Tiger during his career.” The coach says Robinson has a bright future. The 6-foot-5, 320-pound Robinson is a third-year sophomore. Robinson is projected as a possible first-round pick after starting every game for the Tigers, who lost to Florida State Monday night in the BCS championship game.

ATLANTA — There were a lot of guys who threw harder than Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine. No one knew more about pitching. Mad Dog and Glav were stalwarts in the Atlanta Braves rotation, a potent 1-2 punch for an entire decade on a team that made the playoffs year after year. Now, they have a chance to come together again for the highest honor of their careers — membership in the Baseball Hall of Fame. Maddux and Glavine are both eligible for the first time, with the inductees to be announced Wednesday. They hope to join

MSU offseason. “Nick hasn’t even been in the system for a year. Having him coming back is going to be amazing. The players that we have coming back, they’re going to be difference makers. We’re going to have to have a really good offseason and get back to this place.” Mason broke Bo Jackson’s single-season Auburn rushing mark with 1,816 yards, including a tackle-breaking 37-yard touchdown with 1:19 left to give Auburn a 31-27 lead. Mason said leaving would be tough, but he plans to talk with his family before making a decision.

which is nothing like last year’s surprise team that reached the NCAA tournament round of 16 yet was significant for an MSU squad with just eight scholarship players. Five players scored in double figures in that game with sophomore guard Craig Sword (14.3 points per game, 57 per-

cent field goal shooting) leading the way. The Bulldogs are coming off Thursday’s 77-63 victory over Maryland Eastern Shore, highlighted by a career-best 16 rebounds from sophomore forward Gavin Ware (11.2 points, 8.9 rebounds). Ray believes his team will have to work harder

on the boards against Kentucky’s taller lineup, saying, “you can get a stop, but it’s not a stop unless you get the rebound.” Sword went even further, adding, “we’re just going to have to buckle down and play defense. We’ve got to compete on every possession.”

ston’s biggest problem this season came off the field. Winston was investigated for a year-old sexual assault complaint in November, but after three weeks the Florida state attorney’s office determined it did not have enough evidence to charge him. Winston, who turned 20 Monday, told his teammates before the final drive: “‘Guys, we didn’t come here for no reason.’ I said ‘Y’all, this is ours, man.’” The Seminoles were down 21-3 in the first half, and wobbling, but

never fell over. And now Florida State is national champion for the first time since 1999, the first team to win the BCS title game after being down at halftime. Winston was jumpy against a strong Auburn pass rush, led by Dee Ford. Winston was sacked four times. The Seminoles cut it to 21-10 with a late touchdown in the second quarter, following a faked punt and a tough 21-yard run by Winston, and chipped into Auburn’s lead with a 41-yard field goal by Roberto Aguayo

with 6:05 left in the third. Meanwhile, Florida State had found some answers to Auburn’s spread offense. A holding penalty that wiped out a long pass also helped keep the Tigers scoreless in the third quarter, and the Seminoles began the fourth with P.J. Williams intercepting Marshall’s pass and setting up Florida State at its 38.

Diane Cordeau of KaiKai Farm in Indiantown, Fla., about 90 miles north of Miami, had to pick her squash and tomatoes Monday to beat the freeze but said her leafy vegetables, such as kale, will be sweeter and taste better because of the cold. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the queen of lettuce around here, so the colder the better,â&#x20AC;? said Cordeau, whose farm serves highend restaurants that request specific produce or organic vegetables.

Sister needs to be assertive with twin






Dear Annie: I’m an identical twin and will be turning 56 in February, but my sister behaves more like my daughter than my sister. Annie, I’m sick of it! My twin sister turned her back on me in believing ridiculous lies told by my youngest brother. Several years later, she showed up out of the blue needing a place to live, knowing “Old Sis” would take her in. She lived with me for eight years until she got a job transfer. She still calls wanting money. I’ve learned how to make excuses, but I want it to stop. I need help being upfront with this mooch of a sister, but I’ve never confronted anyone before in my entire life. Any advice? -- Sister of a Mooch Dear Sister: You don’t need to be confrontational. You need to be assertive. Your sister takes advantage of you because you permit it. The easiest way to stop permitting it is to learn to say no. So when she asks for money, tell her, “I’m sorry, but not this time.” If she asks why not, reply, “I have loaned you enough.” Practice saying it in front of a mirror until it comes naturally. Write it down on a piece of paper and tape it next to your phone so it is on hand when she calls. You are under no obligation to give her excuses, evasions or explanations. Be polite, but just say no. Dear Annie: I have been widowed for 19

Annie’s Mailbox years and belong to a support group of women who go out to lunch once a month. Before I married my late husband, I was an independent businesswoman, cared for an elderly parent, paid my own bills, pumped my own gas, bought my own cars, etc. I was surprised to learn how few of the women in my group know how to do any of these things. They have no clue what their family finances are. One of them had to learn how to drive when her husband died. Please, please, please tell wives (and husbands) to take responsibility for themselves while their spouses are still living and learn what their financial obligations are, when their bills are due, how to pump gas and all the other things you will need to know in order to be independent. It is hard enough to transition from married life to widowhood without having to learn basic life skills at the same time. -- Been There, Knew How To Do That in Kentucky Dear Kentucky: Thank you for the knock on the head. Along with financial matters and pumping gas, both men and women should know how to cook a simple meal, sew on a button,

iron a shirt, load the dishwasher and do the laundry. These are skills that everyone needs, and it is shortsighted to assume that someone else will handle them for you for the rest of your life. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Uncomfortable,” whose new mother-in-law wants her to call her “Mom.” I had a similar problem when my son married his wife. I love her dearly. One day, I wrote her an email and signed it, “Love, Your ‘Other’ Mom.” She responded to me in that same way. Now, after several years, she is able to call me “Mom.” When my own mother passed away, I found it difficult to think of another person as my mom. Now, I have friends whose mothers are still living, and I often refer to a few of them as “my other mother.” One of these special moms phones me every now and then and refers to me as her “other daughter.” I can’t tell you how much this means to me. I hope this helps “Uncomfortable” refer to her mother-in-law in a less awkward way. -- Been There Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Avoid the seven deadly sins of gardening Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face it; it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take much effort for our gardening minds to wander down imaginary garden paths. Alfred Austin summed up the enjoyment we receive from gardening -- â&#x20AC;&#x153;The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a Gary garden is Bachman to feed not just the Southern body, but Gardening the soul.â&#x20AC;? So while youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re kicked back in the warmth of the house, I want to remind you of some gardening sins -seven to be exact -- to avoid. But donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t panic, as these arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t real sins and nothing really bad is going to happen if you slip up from time to time.

1. Cabin Fever Gardeners come down with cabin fever right about the first warm weekend. Garden centers offer over-the-counter remedies of beautiful blooming annuals, as well as tomato and pepper plants. But donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give in to temptation. Wait until the last frost date, which varies from late March on the coast to late April in north Mississippi. Planting before this date may give you a jump on the neighbors, but you run the risk of having frost send you back to the garden center.

2. Gardening Fever Closely related to cabin fever is gardening fever, which is brought on by

Planting before (the last frost) may give you a jump on the neighbors, but you run the risk of having frost send you back to the garden center. endless garden catalogs and landscape shows on television. By the time spring really arrives, our heads are full of ideas weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve spent months planning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Southern Gardening TVâ&#x20AC;? is worth watching, as we do our best to relieve the symptoms of gardening fever but not feed them.

3. Not dialing 411 After five months spent planning the new landscape, you still have some questions. This is not the time to follow that independent streak most humans (to be honest, mostly men) have and try to figure it out yourself. Ask questions. Your neighbors, garden clubs, Extension office, newspapers and Saturday radio shows are great resources. Gardeners like to share their experiences, so ask.

4. Planting and not repeating Consider planting in sequences and then repeating. For the vegetable garden, this means planting cool-season crops like carrots and salad greens in the spring, followed by warm-season tomatoes, peppers and okra in the summer. Finish the year with more cool-season plants like broccoli and cauliflower. Sequence in the flower garden with spring bulbs like tulips, daffodils and crocus, followed by summer annuals and later fall pansies,

ornamental cabbage and kale.

5. Remembering Whatever you do in the garden, write it down. Keep a pad of paper with your garden tools, use a calendar, take notes or photos with your phone, or for the really ambitious gardener, create a garden blog. One method not used nearly enough in home gardens is to simply place plastic tags in the ground by each plant. Old Venetian blind slats work well for this. Just cut them in pieces about 6 inches long and use a permanent marker. But trust me: You wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember everything unless you write it down.

7. Forgetting the fun Our fast-paced lives need to reconnect with the natural world. Tending a garden brings peace and serenity. Although gardening is physical, a garden should not be a job. Patience is rewarded, and you learn the ways of Mother Nature through trial and error. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry if a plant doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t survive. Simply take it as an opportunity to plant and learn about something else. (Daily Corinthian columnist Dr. Gary Bachman is an associate Extension research professor of horticulture at the Coastal Research and Extension Center in Biloxi.)

6. Fences Fences are a must for most vegetable and flower gardens. Wherever you live, there are varmints that want to share the garden. If you have a large garden and are willing to share, this might not be a problem. Rabbits and their ilk feed on our most prized â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and usually most expensive â&#x20AC;&#x201C; plants and enjoy the fruits of our labors. Building fences is the only reliable deterrent to save your salvias, and they can be an attractive element in the garden. A white picket fence is an active garden participant, while a green wire fence seems to dissolve into the foliage.
