5 house fires prompt warnings BY KIMBERLY SHELTON email@example.com
With the winter season at its peak and arctic air devastating the Crossroads, residents are doing anything and everything they can to stay warm. They are wearing protective layers, cranking up the heat and sip-
ping warm liquids, all in an attempt to ease cold weather symptoms. Over the past several weeks, Alcorn County has had at least five homes decimated by flames. At least one fireman was injured in the fires. “While fire is a cozy, pleas-
ant element, it can also be a destructive one,” warned Ricky Gibens, director of Alcorn County Emergency Services. “Be fire wise and remember that things that help you, could hurt you.” According to the Mississippi State Department of Health,
Mississippi has one of the highest fire mortality rates in the nation. “Older adults, young children and people in substandard housing or mobile homes are at the highest risk for fire-related deaths,” said MSDH. Safety tips from MSDH in-
clude: • Space heaters are convenient for heating up small areas, but they are also one of the leading causes of house fires. If a heater is old or has been it storage, it is always wise to Please see FIRES | A2

When water freezes, it expands. Some Alcorn County residents have been affected this week by frozen pipes as extremely cold temperatures stalled over the Crossroads. “I came home from lunch Tuesday and water was coming out from under my back door,” cried a stunned LeeAnn Howie. “I was heart broken.” Howie’s home on Geisler Lane was severely damaged by the water and a near total loss. “The house was built on a concrete slab and the water pipes run through the attic,” she said. “Everything was damaged ... the floors, walls and ceiling.” Howie immediately contacted her insurance agent, who called in a restoration emergency company and booked a hotel room for Howie and her eightyear-old daughter, Sydney. According to The Weather Channel, pipes normally freeze following a complete ice blockage. Continued freezing and expansion inside the pipe causes water pressure to increase between the ice blockage and the closed faucet. It’s this increase in pressure that leads to pipe failure. One way to try to prevent a possible pipe burst is letting a faucet drip during the extreme cold weather. Opening the faucet will provide relief from the excessive pressure that builds between the faucet and the ice blockage when freezing occurs. Howie’s home was the exception. “This wasn’t supposed to happen,” said Howie. “We did everything we were told ... left the water dripping and left our cabinet doors open.” Howie was one of many local residents who reported plumbing problems on Wednesday, the result of single-digit temperatures in the area. One Corinth area plumber wanted to clear up a misconception. “People don’t realize the cold and hot water needs to be left dripping,” advised Jason Roach, owner of Roach Plumbing and Electrical. “The hot water pipe will actually freeze faster then the cold water pipe.” In case anyone does have a pipe burst, Roach stressed the water should be turned off at the meter and all faucets should be turned on full blast. Local hardware and home improvement stores have seen an increase in traffic due to the weather.

The Crossroads Arena was been dealing with a stinky situation. Six skunks invaded the multipurpose facility this week before being evacuated from the premises Wednesday afternoon by a local trapper. “It was bad in there,” said trapper Ozzy Hendrix about a hour after removal of the animals. According to Hendrix, the skunks found a way into the building and were located in a 6-foot cavity of a wall. “They aren’t afraid of anything … they walked right into the cage,” said the trapper. Getting rid of skunks isn’t something new to Hendrix. “I catch them all the time,” he said. “I caught 26 under one house in the county a few years ago.” The smelly varmints were taken care of just in time. The Arena is set to host the Alcorn County Basketball Tournament for the 10th straight season beginning tonight and continuing through Saturday.
Two arrested for selling of prescriptions BY JEBB JOHNSTON firstname.lastname@example.org
The Alcorn Narcotics Unit arrested two people Friday in separate instances of alleged prescription pills sales. The unit arrested Felicia Walker, 49, of West Harris Circle, and charged her with two counts of sale of a controlled substance after an investigation into Walker selling her prescription medication. Narcotics Officer Darrell Hopkins said officers purchased drugs from Walker on two occasions. Her bond was set at $20,000. Also charged is Brittany Lynn Skinner, 20, of County Road 209, Burnsville. She turned herself in after Alcorn narcotics officers contacted her about selling her prescription pills. Officers previously made a purchase from Skinner and another female, Hopkins said. Bond was set at $10,000 for Skinner. The narcotics unit is seeing Please see ARRESTS | 2

Brooks rocks on despite weather BY KIMBERLY SHELTON email@example.com
Strong winds ravaged the city, and the streets of downtown Corinth were all but desolate save for a few brave souls who hesitantly ventured out to the coffee house. The bone chilling weather had no effect on Shane Brooks and not even the moist air could dampen his spirit. He arrived at KC’s Espresso dressed as if he’d stepped straight off the stage and into the crowd. Brooks described the electricity he feels on stage as “the greatest feeling in the whole world, other than being a parent.” The musician began playing guitar when he was 14 years old, but his love of music began much earlier. For him, it was an escape. A means of satisfying the yearning deep within. He’s all about the music ... rock music, to be exact. “I love rock music. My favorite song would

This week began the threemonth long Mississippi Legislative session and lawmakers face a long agenda. Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves and Gov. Phil Bryant placed emphasis on making sure money is spent well. Both seek to reduce the state’s use of “one-time money,” such as winnings from lawsuit settlements or federal grants, to pay for recurring expenses. “Eliminating money for recurring expenses is very important,” said District 4 Sen.

most certainly be “Sweet Child of Mine,” a song made famous by Guns N Roses. “Kiss” was revealed to be his all time favorite band with “Creed” and “Guns N Roses” trailing slightly behind. “I’d rather play music full-time than work,” admitted the musician as he lounged at a table near the window. A seasoned professional, he explained that stage fright is no longer an issue for him. “I get more excited than nervous,” said Brooks. The 41-year-old bassist opened up about his experiences while touring with the Kimberlie Helton band. When asked how he became involved with the band, he explained that his wife worked with Helton’s best friend, Teresa Walker of Henderson Tenn., and he had casually inquired to see if she was looking for anyone. “I contacted her through Facebook, sent a friend request and it just took off from there,”

check it for visible defects. If a cord is nicked or appears worn, replace it. Never plug in it. • Dryer fires are also quite common. It is essential to remember that merely cleaning out the lint filter is not enough. The vent at the back of the dryer should also be cleared at least every couple of months to ensure that it does not build up and become a hazard. • Never store flammable materials such as paint, paint thinner, or aerosol cans near a hot water heater. • Always call a licensed electrician to handle electrical problems. • Playing “handyman” without proper training could have devastating effects. • Small appliances should always be unplugged when not in use and never be left unattended. • Smoke detectors need to be checked regularly to ensure they are working properly and that the batteries don’t need replacing. Ten-year battery smoke detectors are rising in popularity. They can be purchased locally at Lowe’s and other hardware stores. • Fire places can also pose a threat. Dangerous creosote can build up in the chimney walls making it highly flammable. Hire a professional to clean it for you or invest in a chimney sweeping log, • If gas is used to heat the home, a carbon monoxide detector is a smart investment. Each year, the silent killer claims victims whose deaths could have been prevented. • Candles are pret-
ty. They set the mood and add ambiance to a home, but they also pose hidden dangers. As with heaters, never leave a candle unattended or near clothes, curtains, and other flammable material. Be sure that they are kept out of reach. Even if it doesn’t result in a fire, small children or pets could be badly burned by the candle’s wax. The darker the candle, the hotter the wax. • Electric blankets are warm and toasty, but they can also pose a potential fire or shock risk. It takes only seconds for a blanket to become fully engulfed. So, always check for worn areas and snags in the material. A sheet should be placed between the blanket and the sleeper. It should never come in direct contact with the skin. • If a smoke is spotted or anything looks suspicious, contact the fire department immediately. • Always have an escape plan. Never rush back into the house to retrieve items. The back of the hand should be used to determine if door knobs have turned into “fire pokers.” • If someone becomes burned, placed the wound under cool water for ten to fifteen minutes. The old adage still applies, if a person’s clothing catches fire ... they should stop, drop and roll. (For more information visit www.firesafetytips.com.

phone calls and e-mails from local teachers about this problem,” noted Parks. “It is personally my most important item.” Legislators also want to move forward to increase the pay for elementary and secondary teachers. “I highly support a teacher pay raise,” said District 1 Rep. Lester “Bubba” Carpenter (RAlcorn, Tishomingo). “It is long overdue and I believe we will see it happen during this session.” District 2 Rep. Nick Bain (D-Alcorn) agreed a pay raise should happen this year for educators. “I voted for it last year and it just didn’t have enough support,” noted Bain. “But I feel confident it will happen this year.” The state’s last blanket pay raise for school teachers in Mississippi came in 2007. Today the state’s average teacher salary is just over $41,000 and is $4,500 to $8,500 below the states surrounding Mississippi. Bain also highlighted some of the governor’s public safety agenda. “The focus this session is public safety — mostly in prison reform,” said Bain. “We’re at-
tempting to improve conditions inside some of our prisons and creating laws that should help keep the problem from growing.” Carpenter added the possible plan of allowing non-violent offenders to be placed on house arrest to help save on prison costs. Lawmakers are also considering creating college scholarships for people with financial need. The state currently puts some money into scholarships, but they’re not need-based. With tighter limits on federal Pell grants in the past couple of years, some lower-income students are having a harder time paying for college. They could argue about increasing the gasoline tax to pay for highway construction and maintenance. “I’m working on appropriating funds for the connecting of Highway 9 from Alcorn/Prentiss to Blue Springs,” noted Bain. “We will then have a direct path to the Toyota plant and hopefully an increase in jobs.” Legislators have an early April deadline to adopt a budget for fiscal 2015 which begins July 1.

Fans mark Presley’s birthday Associated Press
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Television and radio personality Wink Martindale remembers the day nearly 60 years ago when Elvis Presley’s first single, “That’s All Right,” played for the first time on the radio. It was July 8, 1954, and a freshfaced Martindale was working as a disc jockey at WHBQ in Memphis. He was at the studio when legendary producer Sam Phillips brought by an acetate copy of the song Presley cut at Phillips’ Sun Records. “It was almost like an out-of-body experience,” Martindale told Presley fans who came to Graceland on Wednesday to celebrate the late icon’s 79th birthday. “That was the beginning of Presley-mania.” Martindale and Jenna Bush Hager, daughter of former President George W. Bush, attended the annual birthday party at Presley’s longtime Memphis home. The event featured a cake cutting and the singing of “Happy Birthday” by 16-year-old Canadian David Thibault.

said Brooks. “The band was formed in 2009 and I joined it in April 2010.” He smiled as he reflected on time spent with his band members. “It’s something all the time. We have these behind the scene moments that are really funny,” said Brooks. A question was posed as to which band member was the biggest cut-up. The bass player instantly said, “It’s a toss-up between me and Kimberlie, but I would have to say she is because she talks
more than I do.” He laughed as if recalling a certain memory. “We never ever have practice,” Brooks disclosed. “We learn the songs separately and then magically it just all falls into place once we get together.” His favorite gig was when the group performed in Searcy, Ark. “We once had the opportunity to open for The Band Perry,” continued the musician with excitement. “It was amazing,” he gushed.
He added that while he didn’t get to hang out with them much after show, he found them to be downto-earth individuals. “We did get to have our pictures taken with them,” said Brooks. Every artist dreams of performing at theideal venue. For Brooks, it would be the Super Bowl. “I’d like to be the main event,” he acknowledged. While he was reared in Glen and Corinth, the musician currently lives in Bethel Springs, Tenn. Brooks is the father of three children, Ashton,
16, Alex, 15 and Alisha, 14. He has been married to Deanne Davidson Brooks since 2006. Shane works at Caraustar in Corinth, and Deanne is a Certified Pharmacy Technician at Dee’s Discount Drugs in Henderson, Tenn. January boasts a huge schedule for the Kimberlie Helton Band. They will be playing in Bath Springs, Lexington, Humboldt and Jackson, to name a few. Those who wish to follow the band’s progress are urged to send them a “like” on Facebook.

they are doing for a few extra dollars,” he said. “Pills such as morphine, Dilaudid, oxycodone and Adderall are just as bad as cocaine, meth and heroin when taken the wrong way.” Medications should be kept out of sight. “Alcorn is having bur-

Today is Thursday, Jan. 9, the ninth day of 2014. There are 356 days left in the year.
Today’s Highlight in History: On Jan. 9, 1914, the County of Los Angeles opened the country’s first public defender’s office, headed by Walton J. Wood.
On this date: In 1861, Mississippi became the second state to secede from the Union, the same day the Star of the West, a merchant vessel bringing reinforcements and supplies to Federal troops at Fort Sumter, S.C., retreated because of artillery fire.

In 1972, reclusive billionaire Howard Hughes, speaking by telephone from the Bahamas to reporters in Hollywood, said a purported autobiography of him by Clifford Irving was a fake. In 1987, the White House released a Jan. 1986 memorandum prepared for President Ronald Reagan by Lt. Col. Oliver L. North showing a link between U.S. arms sales to Iran and the release of American hostages in Lebanon. In 1997, a Comair commuter plane crashed 18 miles short of the Detroit Metropolitan Airport, killing all 29 people on board.
Ten years ago: Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge announced that the nation’s threat level had been lowered from orange (“high”) to yellow (“elevated”).
TVA grant will aid Prentiss development BY BRANT SAPPINGTON email@example.com
A major grant from the Tennessee Valley Authority will help the Prentiss County Development Association make a site in the West Prentiss County Industrial Park more attractive to potential new employers. PCDA will receive $175,000 from TVA to construct a level building pad on the site. The grant will be matched by $37,500 from PCDA and an equal amount from Prentiss County. PCDA Executive Director Leon Hays said the funds will allow the site, which currently has several major elevation changes, to be leveled off and made ready for immediate construction. The work will make the site much

more marketable to industrial developers who are often looking for ready to build sites, explained Hays. He said developers are usually on tight time schedules and a site that is level and ready to go is much easier to pitch for potential development. Hays said PCDA is grateful to TVA for its investment and for the partnership with the county in providing the matching funds for the grant. The work is part of ongoing efforts by PCDA to place the county in the best position possible to recruit new industry. He said it is regularly working with developers and showing them sites in the county and this type of preparation work can make a huge difference in bringing new jobs.

He said officials also applied for a grant from the Mississippi Development Authority whichwould provide funds for environmental studies on a parcel in the East Prentiss Industrial Park. These types of studies are a required part of any new development and having the study done and available to a developer makes a site a more attractive option for investment. Hays said PCDA is working daily to market the county to new industry and though much of that work is done outside of the public eye due to the desire for companies to keep their site selection processes secret, he wants the public to know PCDA is actively working to bring jobs to the county. He said personnel are excited about several opportunities on the horizon.

Obama vs. the Little Sisters It takes some doing to get embroiled in a court fight with nuns who provide hospice care for the indigent. Amazingly, the Obama administration has managed it. Its legal battle with the Little Sisters of the Poor is the logiRich cal consequence of Obamacare’s Lowery conscience-trampling contraception mandate. The requireNational Review ment went into effect Jan. 1, but Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor issued a New Year’s Eve injunction against enforcing it on the Little Sisters. They are Catholic nuns who follow the doctrinal teachings of the church and therefore oppose contraceptive and abortive drugs and sterilization, all of which Obamacare mandates that employers cover in their insurance plans. Given the ongoing delays, waivers and exemptions associated with the law, it would seem natural simply to let the Little Sisters go about their business of pouring out their hearts for the sick and dying. But this is a fight the administration won’t walk away from. For it, it is a matter of principle. And the principle is that the state trumps the convictions of people with deep-held religious beliefs. When the contraception mandate first caused an uproar, the administration contrived a socalled accommodation for religiously oriented groups (actual churches have always been exempt). But whoever crafted it had a sick sense of humor. The very same document by which a group registers its moral objection to contraceptives and abortifacients also authorizes the insurer to cover them for the group’s employees. What the accommodation gives with one hand, it takes away with the other. The Little Sisters refuse to sign such a document. They happen to be in an unusual situation because they get their insurance from another religiously affiliated organization opposed to contraceptives and abortifacients, so it may be that these drugs don’t get covered no matter what. But the Little Sisters can’t be sure of this -- the regulations are complicated and subject to change. Regardless, they don’t want to sign. They want no part in authorizing coverage of contraceptive or abortive drugs. Enthusiasts for the mandate scoff. What the nuns are objecting to, they insist, is just a piece of paper. Just a piece of paper? So is a mortgage. So is a wedding certificate. So is a will. How would the board of directors of NARAL react if the government forced them to sign a “piece of paper” tacitly condemning contraception or abortion? Would they shrug it off as a mere formality? The Little Sisters deserve deference. Their religious sensibility is different than -- and, one hazards to say, more finely tuned than -- that of the mandarins of President Barack Obama’s administrative state. In a dispute over what their conscience tells them to do or not to do, the Little Sisters are better positioned to know than anyone else. Besides, who is harmed if the Little Sisters don’t provide contraception coverage? They are a voluntary organization. They aren’t imposing their views on anyone. Who, for that matter, is harmed if a secular organization run by people with moral objections to contraceptives and abortifacients refuses to cover them? Employees are still free to go out on their own and get contraceptives, which are widely available. If this sounds like an outlandish imposition, it is what people managed to do throughout American history all the way up to last week. The contraception mandate has always had a strong ideological impetus. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius notoriously declared in 2011 that opponents of the mandate “want to roll back the last 50 years in progress women have made in comprehensive health care in America. We’ve come a long way in women’s health over the last few decades, but we are in a war.” By this bizarre way of thinking, a small congregation of nuns that cares for the most vulnerable is somehow complicit in a war on women’s health. Instead of respecting the moral views of the Little Sisters, the administration hopes to grind them under foot by force of law. For shame.

Prayer for today Gracious Father, if I am sorrowing over disappointment and am forgetful, grant that I may see the things thou hast made, for which I should be thankful. Help me to so live that I may have a right to claim a cheerful heart. Amen.
A verse to share “These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.” — Proverbs 6:16-19
Does Simpson-Bowles II represent American center? Back in 2010, the Simpson-Bowles Commission offered a radical solution to a complex problem facing this nation in a presentation made by the bipartisan presidential commission on the nation’s debt and deficits at the National Governors Association (NGA) meeting in Boston. They proposed solving the nation’s fiscal woes through both cutting spending and raising taxes. The co-chairmen of the commission – former Clinton administration White House chief of staff Erskine Bowles and former Wyoming Republican U.S. Sen. Alan Simpson of Wyoming – told the nation’s governors that current budgetary trends constituted “a cancer that will destroy the country from within” unless Congress and the White House takes action. The basic premise of the Bowles-Simpson presentation to NGA was that present federal revenue is consumed by the obligations of three federal entitlement programs: Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. “The rest of the federal government, including fighting two wars, home-
land security, education, art, culture, you name it, veterans – the whole rest of Sid Salter the discreColumnist tionary budget is being financed by China (through borrowing) and other countries,” Simpson said. “We can’t grow our way out of this,” Bowles said. “We could have decades of double-digit growth and not grow our way out of this enormous debt problem. We can’t tax our way out. The reality is we’ve got to do exactly what you all do every day as governors. We’ve got to cut spending or increase revenues or do some combination of that.” President Obama’s $3.8 trillion budget proposal for Fiscal Year 2011 only identified $2.57 trillion in revenue while running a $1.27 trillion deficit – continuing deficits begun in the Bush administration. Three years later, the “new” Simpson-Bowles proposal was put forth that sought a $2.5 trillion in deficit reductions using the
same broad methods of cutting spending and raising taxes. Again, the spending cuts sought rest heavily in cutting defense spending and Medicare spending. Regardless one’s political philosophy, large portions of the Simpson-Bowles plans make sense. The left likes the cuts in defense spending. The right likes the cuts in Medicare and Medicaid. But the right hates the increased taxes and the left hates the tough love the plan offers the future of Social Security. Clearly, Simpson-Bowles isn’t for the political faint of heart. It’s tough medicine for the “cancer” the pair diagnoses in American government. Their plan audaciously seeks to reduce the federal deficit by $4 trillion over 10 years, mainly by cutting Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and the military budget; raising taxes mostly on high earners; and curtailing popularbut-expensive tax breaks such as the one for home mortgage interest. For a wide spectrum of Americans, the plan is simply unpalatable. But the basic premise
remains - present federal revenue is consumed by the obligations of three federal entitlement programs: Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. Any long term plan that seeks to gradually bring the American economy into a fiscally sustainable arc without address entitlements is doomed to fail. But in the next round of elections, it will be again interesting to see if the “austerity economics” preached by Simpson and Bowles finds any new converts. Here in Mississippi, there has yet to be a successful congressional candidate who has succeeded on a platform of cutting entitlements and raising taxes today so that the national debt will be lower in a decade. Simpson-Bowles claims that’s the path to the new American center. Some 78 million American Baby Boomers on the cusp of collecting their own Social Security and Medicare benefits have yet to embrace that philosophy.

Flashback: The Red Sox and the White House In this Nov. 5, 2003 column, Kaul compared George W. Bush to a failed baseball team manager in terms of the way he dealt with Iraq. Boston Red Sox manager Grady Little’s team was on track to beat the New York Yankees in the American League baseball playoffs when he made the decision to stick with a faltering star pitcher rather than change strategy and call in relief help. Thus he became the former manager of the Boston Red Sox. Playing on a somewhat larger field, George W. Bush seems to be morphing into Grady Little. Bush had a wonderful plan: knock over Saddam Hussein like a cardboard cutout, install a friendly, somewhat democratic, government in oil-rich Iraq and send a message to our enemies — “Don’t mess with George Dubya.” The knocking over part went as planned, but not much else. In much of Iraq we find ourselves a hated occupier engulfed by a demoralizing guerrilla war. Each day brings grim news of fresh casualties, seemingly at an ever-escalating rate. The gross casualty numbers do not approach the level of Vietnam — yet —
circulation manager firstname.lastname@example.org
but more American men and women have been killed in the war since Bush Donald declared it Kaul over than had died beOther Words fore. And the number of seriously wounded, seldom mentioned by the administration (or by the press, for that matter) has reached appalling levels. A Washington Post reporter visited the Walter Reed military hospital recently and found a scene reminiscent of the Civil War when, because of primitive medical technology, battlefield injuries almost always resulted in amputation. Our kids are getting cut up over there. And through it all President Bush sits, like Grady Little, frozen at the controls, declaring that his plan is working. He even had the gall to declare that recent attacks on our troops are proof that we’re making progress. Shortly after he said it, guerrillas shot down a U.S. helicopter, killing 16 and wounding at least 21. Even Lyndon Johnson, Vietnam’s Dr. Pangloss, would have been hard-
pressed to see light at the end of that tunnel. I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised at Bush’s inability, or unwillingness, to face the facts of the mess in Iraq. He is, after all, a fundamentalist Christian. Fundamentalists are creatures of belief and for them beliefs trump facts, always. They don’t have to prove what they believe. What are mere facts, after all, compared to the Word of God. We are good, Saddam Hussein is evil. That’s all we know and that’s all we need to know. What that position gains in moral clarity, it more than loses in usefulness. So got we rid of Saddam. Good for us. Now what? It seems to me that our efforts in Iraq have been marked by an abysmal ignorance both of the region and of the pitfalls of trying to turn that country into Switzerland. We have ignored the counsel of people who have spent their lives studying the area in favor of advice from ideologues of questionable expertise. Bush makes no pretense of seeking out opinion he disagrees with. The other week, he told an interviewer that he almost never reads newspapers or watches the news on television. “The best way to get the news

is from objective sources,” Bush said. “And the most objective sources I have are people on my staff who tell me what’s happening in the world.” That rings true when you think about it. How else are we to explain his repeated declarations that Iraqi guerrillas and their foreign allies are attacking us because we are a freedomloving nation? His gang actually thinks that people are strapping explosives to their bodies and blowing themselves up because they hate freedom. The political campaigns have started and commentators are wondering whether any of the Democrats can beat President Bush in 2004. I don’t understand the question. What’s to beat? As a patriotic American, I am loathe to call the president of the United States an incompetent nincompoop. But I’ll say this: He’s giving a marvelous imitation of one. Jerry Springer should be able to beat him. Hell, Grady Little should be able to beat him. (Daily Corinthian and OtherWords.org columnist Donald Kaul lives in Ann Arbor, Mich.

Messages suggest traffic jam a payback TRENTON, N.J.â€” A political furor surrounding Gov. Chris Christie intensified Wednesday with the release of emails and text messages that suggest one of his top aides deliberately created traffic jams in a New Jersey town last September to punish its mayor. An â€œoutraged and deeply saddenedâ€? Christie said he was misled by his aide, and he denied any involvement in the apparent act of political payback. The messages were obtained by The Associated Press and other news organizations Wednesday amid a statehouse investigation into the whether the huge traffic backup was retribution against the mayor of Fort Lee for not endorsing Christie for reelection last fall. â€œTime for some traffic problems in Fort Lee,â€? Christie deputy chief of staff Bridget Anne Kelly wrote in August in a message to David Wildstein, a top Christie appointee on the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. â€œGot it,â€? Wildstein replied. A few weeks later, Wildstein closed two of three lanes connecting Fort Lee to the heavily traveled George Washington Bridge. Â
Obama to adjust spying on leaders WASHINGTONâ€” President Barack Obama is expected to tighten restrictions on U.S. spy-
ing on foreign leaders and also is considering changes in National Security Agency access to Americansâ€™ phone records, according to people familiar with a White House review of the nationâ€™s surveillance programs. Obama could unveil his highly anticipated decisions as early as next week. Ahead of that announcement, he is consulting with lawmakers, privacy advocates and intelligence officials who were invited to White House meetings Wednesday and Thursday. â€œHeâ€™s at that stage still where heâ€™s listening and discussing with a variety of stakeholders and appreciates very much the opinions and counsel heâ€™s getting on this matter,â€? White House spokesman Jay Carney said. Among the changes Obama is expected to announce is more oversight of the National Intelligence Priorities Framework, a classified document that ranks U.S. intelligence- gathering priorities and is used to make decisions on scrutiny of foreign leaders. A presidential review board recommended increasing the number of policy officials who help establish those priorities, and that could result in limits on surveillance of allies. Documents released by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden revealed that the U.S. was monitoring the communications of several friendly foreign leaders, including German Chancellor Angela

Merkel. The revelations outraged Merkel as well as other leaders, and U.S. officials say the disclosures have damaged Obamaâ€™s relations around the world. Â
Caledonia house fire blamed on heater CALEDONIA â€” Authorities in Lowndes County say a wall heater is suspected as the source of an early morning house fire on Tuesday. District 1 Volunteer Fire Chief Mark Spears tells WCBI-TV that the fire was reported at a house on Stanley Road at about 7:30 a.m. Spears says a wall caught fire and flames reached the attic. The homeâ€™s occupant escaped safely and no other injuries were reported, Spears says. Firefighters say the structure sustained moderate damage. Â
Some questioning if losses in vain SAN DIEGO â€” Shirley Parrello knows that her youngest boy believed in his mission in Iraq. But as she watches Iraqi government forces try to retake the hardwon city of Fallujah from al-Qaida-linked fighters, she canâ€™t help wondering if it was worth Marine Lance Cpl. Brian Parrelloâ€™s sacrifice. â€œIâ€™m starting to feel that his death was in vain,â€? the West Milford, N.J., woman said of her 19-year-old son, who died in an explosion there on Jan. 1, 2005. â€œIâ€™m hoping that Iâ€™m wrong. But things arenâ€™t looking good over there right now.â€? The 2004 image of two charred American bodies hanging from a bridge as a jubilant crowd pelted them with shoes seared the cityâ€™s name into the American psyche. The brutal house-to-house battle to tame the Iraqi insurgent stronghold west of Baghdad cemented its place in U.S. military history. But while many are disheartened at Fallujahâ€™s recent fall to Islamist forces, others try to place it in the context of Iraqâ€™s history of internal struggle since the ouster of dictator Saddam Hussein in 2003. And they donâ€™t see the reversal as permanent.
Businesses support Common Core JACKSON â€” The Mississippi Economic Council is redoubling its support for Common Core academic standards. Executive Director Blake Wilson says Wednesday that implementation of Common Core is one of MECâ€™s top issues for the 2014 Legislature, saying: â€œWe cannot turn away.â€? State Superintendent of Education Carey Wright says sheâ€™s committed to the standards, continuing her strong support. Common Core is meant to ensure American students learn the same things across states and to encourage more analytical thinking. Opponents are alarmed by federal support, saying the standards boil down to an intrusive federal takeover of Missis-
sippiâ€™s schools. About two dozen tea party-led opponents met Tuesday at the Capitol to demand lawmakers repeal Common Coreâ€™s adoption in Mississippi. Earlier, Republican Gov. Phil Bryant issued an executive order banning federal intrusion into state education. Â
Rifle stolen from police officerâ€™s car JACKSON â€” Police in Jackson are searching for the thief who took a rifle from an officerâ€™s car. Police spokeswoman Colendula Green tells WAPT-TV the car was parked at the officerâ€™s home in south Jackson at the time of the theft on Tuesday night. Green could not whether the car was the officerâ€™s personal vehicle or a patrol car. The weapon was described as a Heckler & Koch MP5 assault rifle. Police did not identify the officer and say they have no suspects.
Fisher leaving MBN for federal job JACKSONâ€” The director of the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics is stepping down at the end of January to take a federal job. Marshall Fisher says heâ€™s going to work for a federal task force that fights drug trafficking. Fisher tells The Associated Press on Wednesday that he will be working along the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Gov. Phil Bryant will appoint someone to succeed Fisher, who has been led MBN since June 2005. Fisher started the state job after retiring as the agent in charge of Mississippi for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. Bryant issued a statement thanking Fisher for his service, saying: â€œHis relentless pursuit of drug crimes has made Mississippi a safer place, and I know his valuable experience will continue to benefit our state and region.â€?

WASHINGTON — Rushing to curb political fallout, the White House pushed back Wednesday against harsh criticism in a new book by former Defense Secretary Robert Gates that questions President Barack Obama’s war leadership and rips in Vice President Joe Biden. The tell-all memoir from Gates has created a splash in Washington, casting a negative light on Obama’s national security operations by detailing a high level of discord among the small team that made key decisions about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. For two key participants — Biden and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton — the accusations could color how the two potential 2016 presidential candidates are viewed by voters. Initially caught off guard by the book’s accusations, Obama’s aides walked a fine line between publicly rebuking his former defense chief and allowing Gates’ claims to go unchallenged. Still, the White House hurried to Biden’s defense and said the president disagrees with Gates’ characterization.
Officials target use of courts by schools WASHINGTON — The Obama administration on Wednesday pressed the nation’s schools to abandon what it described as overly zealous discipline policies that send students to court instead of the principal’s office. Even before the announcement, school districts around the country
have been taking action to adjust the policies that disproportionately affect minority students. Attorney General Eric Holder said problems often stem from well intentioned “zero-tolerance” policies that can inject the criminal justice system into school matters. “A routine school disciplinary infraction should land a student in the principal’s office, not in a police precinct,” Holder said. But it’s about race, too, the government said in a letter accompanying the new guidelines it issued Wednesday. “In our investigations, we have found cases where African-American students were disciplined more harshly and more frequently because of their race than similarly situated white students,” the Justice Department and Education Department said in the letter to school districts. “In short, racial discrimination in school discipline is a real problem.”
House, lobbyists spar over immigration WASHINGTON— Conservatives and the nation’s biggest business lobby sparred Wednesday over immigration overhaul, with advocates vowing a renewed effort to get the House to act this year and opponents digging in against anything that shifts the political spotlight from President Barack Obama’s troubled health care law. The latest skirmish came as proponents raised expectations of congressional action on the contentious issue, seizing on any glimmer of positive developments. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, told
Funeral services for Wavane Walker, 84, of Corinth, are set for 1 p.m. Saturday at New Covenant Baptist Church with burial in Andy Dilworth Cemetery. Mrs. Walker died Saturday, January 4, 2014 at her residence. Born November 6, 1929, she was employed at Whitfield Nursing Home as a CNA for 29 years. Survivors include six sons, Billy Walker, W. Walker Cassius Walker, Edward Walker, Carey (Anita) Walker, J.C. Hill all of Corinth and Johnny Walker of Jackson; four daughters, Ruth Mayes, Sylvia Walker, Mansel Walker and Felecia Walker all of Corinth; 36 grandchildren; 40 great-grandchildren; and three great-great-grandchildren.

rank-and-file Republicans in a closed-door session that he would soon outline party principles on the issue, which could serve as a precursor to legislation. One of the GOP’s crucial backers on many policies, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, promised to “pull out all the stops” to get legislation done. “We’re determined to make 2014 the year that immigration reform is finally enacted,” Tom Donohue, president of the Chamber of Commerce, said in his State of American Business address. He said the organization would engage in grassroots lobbying, communications and partnership with unions, similar to what it did to secure a bipartisan bill in the Senate last year.
Mom, 58, serves as daughter’s surrogate PROVO, Utah — A 58-year-old Utah woman is set to give birth in a few weeks — to her first grandchild. Julia Navarro is serving as a gestational surrogate for her daughter and son-in-law after the couple struggled with fertility problems. Navarro’s daughter Lorena McKinnon said she began trying to have a baby with her husband, Micah McKinnon, three years ago. The 32-year-old Provo woman said she’s had about a dozen miscarriages, with the longest pregnancy lasting 10 weeks. After several tries, the couple began looking for a surrogate. McKinnon said a friend and sister both considered carrying her baby, but ultimately decided against it.
Musician Harrell loses DUI appeal BILOXI — 3 Doors Down bassist Robert Todd Harrell has lost an appeal of his 2013 driving impaired conviction. At a hearing Wednesday before Judge Robin Alfred Midcalf, the Sun Herald reports the 41-year-old Harrell was fined $1,000 and given a suspended two-day jail sentence. He also was ordered to enroll in impairment and victim impact programs within a month. Harrell was convicted of DUI after he crashed his Cadillac into the back of a pickup truck in D’Iberville in 2012. A D’Iberville police officer testified Harrell initially told police that he had taken a Xanaflex pill the night before. But after consenting to a blood test, he told the officer he had five different prescription pills in his system. Harrell’s attorney, Adam Miller of Pasgacoula, was not available for comment. A spokesman for the group did not immediately respond to an emailed request for comment.
Carjacked vehicle found in Jackson RIDGELAND — Authorities say a car taken Monday in a carjacking in Ridgeland has been found in Jackson. Ridgeland Police spokesman Lt. John Neal tells The ClarionLedger that a woman was pulling her 2007 Toyota Camry up to a business on Lake Harbour Drive around 8 p.m. Monday when a man dressed in a hoodie pointed a weapon at
her and ordered her to get out. He then drove off with the car. Neal says the carjacker acted alone, but police believe there may have been a second vehicle trailing the stolen car. The Camry was recovered Tuesday morning near Rebel Woods Drive in Jackson.
Shopping center brings $33.9 million OLIVE BRANCH — An Illinois-based real estate investment trust has purchased the Wedgewood Commons Shopping Center in Olive Branch from Stonecrest Investments LLC. The Memphis Daily News reports Inland Real Estate Income Trust Inc. bought the 159,258-square-foot retail center for $33.9 million. The property, at the corner of Goodman and Pleasant Hill roads, includes four buildings and an existing structure suitable for development of an additional 10,838 square feet of leasable space, increasing the center’s potential retail space to more than 170,000 square feet. Wedgewood Commons is fully leased. Tenants include TJ Maxx, HomeGoods, Michaels, Rack Room Shoes, AT&T, TCBY, GNC and Sport Clips. Stonecrest Investments CEO Bradley Smith says Stonecrest continues to pursue development opportunities in Olive Branch, Southaven and elsewhere in DeSoto County.
ington County will spend $15,000 for additional work on the local courthouse, but anything beyond that is at a standstill for now. Supervisors approved the extra money this week at the request of architect Tommy Mills. The Delta Democrat Times reports that Mills told supervisors the money will be spent to install marble countertops and new mirrors, toilets and faucets in the bathrooms near the judges’ conference room. Toilets and faucets also will be replaced in the bathroom next to the judge’s chamber. Mills says worn hinges and locks will be replaced, along with ceiling tile in the bathrooms. New carpet will be installed in two offices, a file room and an entryway. Supervisors said a request to update the courtroom will have to wait. Mills said the cost would be about $270,000. “At this time, we’ve spent $1.7 million already,” said Supervisor Mike Gordon. “To find another $200 (thousand) to $300,000, we need to ease up a little bit.” Other supervisors said the work needs to be done but that it shouldn’t come at additional cost to county taxpayers. Mills said he remains optimistic the work will be done, contingent on “the availability of grants and other funding.” Last year, the county received a $100,000 grant from Mississippi Department of Archives and History to refinish additional windows. Mills said he’s hoping to acquire more grant funds this year.

Giffords completes skydive on shooting anniversary Associated Press
TUCSON, Ariz. — In the three years since she was severely injured in a mass shooting at a political event, Gabrielle Giffords has made an impressive recovery, learned to walk again and founded a national political organization. On Wednesday, while others gathered for bell-ringing and flagraising ceremonies, she marked the anniversary by skydiving. The former Arizona congresswoman waved and blew kisses to a crowd at a skydiving site between Phoenix and Tucson after landing without injury. She described the jump as a wonderful experience. Giffords’ husband, former astronaut Mark Kelly, posted a picture of her landing on his Twitter account. “Happy she’s safe. So proud of her bravery,” he wrote. Jimmy Hatch, a former Navy SEAL who accompanied Giffords, said she was the least nervous person on the plane. Hatch said the group held hands and formed
People assemble on the lawn outside University of Arizona Medical Center during a ceremony on the third anniversary of the Tucson shootings Wednesday in Tucson, Ariz. Six people were killed and 13 wounded, including U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., in the shooting rampage at a community event hosted by Giffords. a circle shortly after exiting the aircraft and then made a line with Giffords in the middle. The entire skydive lasted about a minute, he said. He called Giffords a “rock star” for making the jump on such an emotional day. “It’s pretty incredible,” he said. “They did a little moment of silence at the drop zone. The emotion was really heavy. ... She’s a testimony to making the
best of what you have.” Vice-President Joe Biden called Giffords to wish her good luck on her jump, according to Biden’s office. The 2011 mass shooting in Tucson left six people dead and injured 13 others, including Giffords. About 100 residents of the city attended a ceremony on Wednesday outside the University of Arizona Medical Center, where the injured were treated.
A bell was rung once for each of the six people killed and the 12 wounded. A pastor also read a prayer and then a moment of silence followed at the event, one of several planned in the city. “The wounds are still there. Time helps, but it doesn’t heal all the wounds,” Mayor Jonathan Rothschild said. “I think the commemorations are, in large part, recognition of our com-
munity’s collective care and compassion and grit to go on.” A post on her Facebook page says Giffords has regained movement in her right arm but still struggles to speak and walk. She has become a leader of Americans for Responsible Solutions, a national organization she founded with her husband to rival the powerful pro-gun lobby. The group struggled to bring about any major changes at the federal and state level in its first year, but the couple is confident they laid the groundwork for success in future election cycles. “The legacy of any day where there’s a mass shooting and loss of life is, I think, a chance to reflect on who these people were and what they did, particularly the people who died,” Kelly said in an interview with The Associated Press on the eve of the anniversary. “But it’s also a chance to look forward and see how we can make changes and reduce the numbers of instances like this that we have.”
Skydiving experts say it’s relatively safe for someone with Giffords’ physical struggles to make a jump. Nancy Koreen, a spokeswoman for the United States Parachute Association said almost anyone — depending on the extent of their disability or injuries — can do a tandem or solo jump. Officials have announced plans for a permanent shooting memorial expected to be located downtown at the Old Pima County Courthouse and in an adjacent park. The sites would display some of the thousands of items, including letters, candles and flags that were placed in makeshift memorials after the shooting. Some of the items were on display Wednesday at libraries in Tucson. “Like any community that experiences a tragedy, the citizens want to be connected to it in some way to show their appreciation and understanding and sympathy,” said Stephen Brigham, president of the January 8 Memorial Foundation.
Markets improve for recyclables Hospitals switch to user-friendly Associated Press
JACKSON — One difficulty with making a recycling program work is finding adequate buyers for the recyclable materials who will turn those into a new product. But markets for recyclables are improving with China buying a lot from the U.S. and major retailers such as Wal-Mart requiring their suppliers to recycle more. “Wal-Mart has been a big player there,” said Mark Williams, administrator of the solid waste and recycling programs at the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality. “Wal-Mart has a scorecard that rates manufacturers on the recyclability of the product, and the amount of recycled content in the product. Coca-Cola is another large company that has done a lot towards recycling. It helps to create markets.” Waste reduction and recycling are also increasingly important to manufacturers. For example, Toyota has a zero-waste initiative with the intention of no waste from manufacturing being sent to landfills. PACCAR, which has a $400-million truck engine plant in Columbus, is another company with a major focus on recycling. “Manufacturers are really looking for recycled materials and ways to avoid putting any waste in landfills,” Williams said. “Our state has to provide those kinds of recycling services to our manufacturing groups to be able to attract them. They are looking for places that can provide those services. As a state we have to take advantage of that by increasing collections of recycled materials in the state and building the recycling infrastructure so we can grow economically and reap the benefits of that environmentally, as well.” The Southeast Recycling Development Council is focused on improving recycling opportunities for manufacturers. The council helps educate legislators about the importance
of the recycling industry. “We are seeing success in states that have really invested in growing the recycling industry,” Williams said. “We hope Mississippi can take advantage of opportunities like that, as well.” A major effort to grow the municipal recycling infrastructure in the state is the Mississippi Recycling Coalition, a group started in 1997 by the DEQ, Mississippi Beautiful, some of the larger recycling companies in the state, and the Mississippi Beverage Association. “Those groups got together to form this consortium to have an independent voice that focused on municipal recycling,” Williams said. “It is an all-volunteer group. Virtually all of the states in the Southeast have similar type organizations. The DEQ provides a lot of support to groups as part of the mission to promote recycling in the state.” The Mississippi Recycling Coalition held its annual conference at the end of October, attracting 130 participants to hear programs such as a “pay as you throw” presentation. Pay as you throw charges for garbage disposal, but recycling is free. “This is an incentive type program that can increase recycling,” Williams said. “The more you recycle, the less you pay. We don’t currently have a pay as you throw program in Mississippi, but we have had interest in the program and wanted communities to consider it as an option.” Markets for recycled materials are improving after the recession that began in 2008 sent markets down. Export markets are continuing to grow. China and India purchase a lot of recyclables from the U.S. and other countries, as well. “China has a growing economy, and we are going to continue to see it be a strong recycling market,” Williams said. “The use of plastics and plastic recycling is growing. The
largest HDPE plant in the world, KW Plastics, is in Troy, Ala. The amount of HDPE they get from Alabama is only enough to run the plant for two days a year. The bottom line is they need more plastics.” Williams said it makes no sense to bury things in a landfill that can have manufacturing uses. Materials should be used over and over again rather than only once and then buried in the ground. “We have to go out and collect that critical mass and help develop the recycling infrastructure in a state that has been very landfill based,” he said. To help encourage that, MDEQ has a program providing a regional recycling cooperative grant to encourage local governments to work together to have joint programs. Like any business activity, recycling succeeds on more volume and quality. “In Mississippi, that is difficult because the state is largely rural,” Williams said. “To get a critical mass of materials is difficult. We try to spur local governments to work together on cooperative type efforts where they collect materials together -- which provides better success for sustaining a recycling program.” The market for recycled glass in the U.S. is shrinking, and can make it difficult to find places to send glass for recycling. “Glass markets are not very good,” Williams said. “Glass has been a tough market to grow. A lot of things influence that. Many folks are turning away from glass to plastics and other types of cartons to sell products.”
electronic medical record-keeping Associated Press
SOUTHAVEN — Zach Chandler, a vice president in Baptist Memorial Healthcare’s corporate office, is plugged into a system that’s the latest, user-friendly face of interactive electronic medical recordkeeping. In days, it’ll be available in DeSoto County. Memphis-based Chandler can monitor the care of his mother in faraway Texas, which switched to the MyChart software system last year. Indeed, anytime she’s in the hospital, her son can “see” the record of her care. The Baptist system takes in 14 hospitals, including Baptist Memorial Hospital-DeSoto in Southaven, and four minor medical centers, with one in Olive Branch. It’s at the minor meds that a major e-event occurs Jan. 1 the phase one “go live” switchover to Baptist OneCare and the available MyChart for end users, meaning care-delivery staff, patients and the public. Baptist Medical Group has 520 medical providers at clinics. Beverly Jordan, BMH’s vice president/chief clinical transformation officer, is coordinating the massive electronic medical record switchover that, when complete in a year and a half, will link the system’s 15,000 staff and physicians with patients and their families.

The system will be fully compliant with all state and federal laws on access and security. It’s new, high-tech stuff, but also in sync with a 101-year tradition, Jordan said of the system’s partnering with the Wisconsin-based Epic software firm. “It’s all about improving patient care,” she said. “This is an extension of that mission, making sure we can tell the patient’s story wherever the patient is.” And doing it in a way that “improves the patient experience and one that contributes to a sustainable model of health care in this country,” she said. Using a computer or the free MyChart app, a patient can refill prescriptions, slate physician appointments, keep an up-to-date, always accessible record of allergies, immunizations and medications plus pay bills online. “It allows the clinical care and billing systems to be integrated, and that’s a first,” Jordan said. The access to information will be empowering for patients, she said, and vital for those in the public “who want to help their children make healthy lifestyle choices, or look after the care of their parents.” The switch has been in the works for months, with preparing of managerial “super users,” and there was a dress rehearsal for end-user
staff at the minor med in Cordova, Tenn., in mid-December. At the minor med center in Olive Branch, Janice Jackson, director of all four centers, and Janie Basford, compliance officer and nurse, conferred on the eve of the rollout. “It’s going really well; we’re excited about it,” said Jackson. At the triage room, Basford and center medical assistant Maria Salas viewed the MyChart “playground,” or teaching version. Basford noted that medical records will be available through the system on personal computers and smartphones for patients who choose so during the intake process. Codes and passwords are a central part. “Doctors will be able to send prescriptions through the Internet,” said Basford. “Have you ever seen a doctor’s handwriting? This new way eliminates the possibility of errors through misreading.” Overall, Salas said of Baptist OneCare and MyChart, “it’s easier, a better flow, more logical in the connections and just a safer atmosphere for everybody.” For the four minor meds, that means at least 60,000 patients per year, said Jackson. Salas doesn’t see any big problems with the move. It just flies with the flock. “We’re busy bees here,” she said.

The Dogs of 2014 has worked since 2010 – but the margin of outperformance has varied. The focus is on a stock’s dividend yield because often a high yield indicates that the stock’s price has fallen. The yield is the annual dividend divided by the price per share. A higher yield could indicate that you’re buying a blue chip that’s out of favor and may have room to rise. This year’s “Dogs” look a lot like the ones from 2013. But new to the kennel are Chevron, Microsoft and Cisco Systems.
The “Dogs of the Dow” beat the rest of the blue chips in 2013. A portfolio of the 10 “Dogs” climbed 33 percent, before dividends, compared with a 26.5 percent rise in the Dow Jones industrial average. The “Dogs” are the 10 highest-yielding stocks in the Dow. The annual investment strategy has investors kick off the year by buying the Dogs and holding them until the following January. The strategy has been relatively consistent – it
Will the “Dogs” run?
The majority of the Dogs of 2014 will take time to catch up to the Dow.

Manufacturing bellwether Alcoa’s latest quarterly earnings are expected to be about flat versus the same period a year earlier. The aluminum products maker’s business continues to be weighed down by low prices for the metal, which forced Alcoa to idle smelting plants last year.

Never too late to mend relationship
WIZARD OF ID
Dear Annie: I am writing to you with a heavy heart. I have been married to my second wife for 20 years. We dated for two years, and she became impatient with my reluctance to get married. We both wanted kids, but her timetable was different than mine. Even though I was old enough to know better (46), I married her because she got pregnant. I am positive that she did it intentionally. We are different. I am very clean and organized, and I work hard. She is messy to the point of dirty, stubborn, disorganized, lazy and vindictive. She has tried to sabotage my relationship with our two children who are now in their late teens. In spite of her efforts, I have created a good relationship with my son. But my younger daughter is another story. She is like her mother: a spoiled brat. I know I am partly responsible for the way she’s turned out. I would like to create a loving relationship before she goes to college in August. I know it’s late to fix this, but do you have any suggestions? — Getting This Off My Chest Dear Getting: It’s never too late to try to mend relationships. The first one should be with your wife. You are terribly resentful, and it’s obvious that you don’t actually like her. Although you may have good reason, your children undoubtedly see it and react accord-
Annie’s Mailbox ingly. It also fuels your wife’s desire to get back at you. And finally, how you relate to your wife affects how you relate to your daughter, who has a similar personality. She identifies with Mom and may believe you resent and dislike her, as well. Get counseling — alone, with your wife or with your daughter. Whatever you can arrange. Dear Annie: My 67-year-old mother is an alcoholic. Two years ago, she was diagnosed with dementia. Mom is now on medication for depression and high blood pressure and is living with my sister “Shannon.” I have seven siblings. When Shannon needs a break, my brothers and I take turns with Mom on the weekends. Mom wanders off during the day while Shannon is at work and catches a ride with strangers to get alcohol. Mom is capable of taking care of herself only when she is not drinking. Otherwise, she has outbursts and tantrums. Shannon has decided to place Mom in a facility. Mom is on a low fixed income. Where could she go? — Worried Sis Dear Worried: First, take your mother to her physician and have her evaluated to see whether
she can manage at an independent senior residence or requires an assisted-living facility. Then call the Eldercare Locator (eldercare.gov) at 1-800677-1116 for information about available places, and take the time to visit those that seem appropriate. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Drowning in Junk,” whose wife is a hoarder. He asked whether he could toss stuff while she is out of town. You were right to tell him not to do that. “Cleaning out” (throwing everything away without the hoarder’s involvement) can actually exacerbate the problem. Please ask “Drowning” to reach out to his local police, fire and health departments and ask whether there is a Hoarding Task Force in his area. Hoarding Task Forces are being organized nationwide. Often the task force will offer direct assistance or referrals to resources including cleaners, organizers and mental health organizations. We have a Hording Task Force here that consults all over the state. — Burlington, Vt. Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Coming Up In The Daily Corinthian Nine-year-old Emma Kate McGee wrote President Barack Obama a letter expressing her concern with the use of overfishing. A few weeks later the Corinth Elementary School third grader received a surprising personal reply from President Obama. Staff Writer/Photographer Zack Steen details her story coming up.
Eager grandmas must defer to wishes of new families DEAR ABBY: In response to the letter from “Family First in Florida” (Nov. 3), it’s no wonder her son and daughter-in-law want some peace and quiet when their new baby arrives. Grandma-to-be appears controlling, entitled and someone who will be more of an endurance test than a helping presence. They are right to set kind, yet firm, boundaries with her. I wanted privacy during and after childbirth, and I’m grateful my mom and MIL respected our wishes. I needed time to establish a nursing routine, heal and get to know my baby before I was ready to host overnight guests. My kids’ grandmas both have strong, loving relationships with their grandkids, so please remind “Family First” she’s not missing out on anything. She’ll still get to be a doting granny, but for now she should back off and remember the arrival of the child is not about HER. — EXPERIENCED MOM IN OMAHA DEAR MOM: I’m pleased everything worked out well for you. That woman’s letter hit a nerve with my readers. A sampling of their comments: DEAR ABBY: I had the same vision of being there when my grandkids were born. However, my kids have not involved me the way I imagined. “Family First’s” son is putting HIS family first, as he should. He and his wife have chosen what they feel will make the smoothest, least-stressful launch for their new family, and he is protecting that plan. If she doesn’t
respect her son’s right to make that decision, she risks jeopardizing her future relationship Abigail with him, his AND the Van Buren wife grandkids. The esDear Abby sence of a mother’s love is sacrifice. It’s time to put aside her dreams and help her son fulfill his. — SUZIE IN OLYMPIA, WASH. DEAR ABBY: The new parents are greatly misinformed about the importance of having grandparents around just before and immediately after the birth of a new baby. It helps to have a family member in the waiting room to update other family and well-wishers so Dad can devote full attention to the new mom and baby. My mother was a godsend, taking care of everything while we bonded with our child. She did the cooking, the chores, and gave us needed breaks during the day so we were able to tolerate night feedings. When our second child arrived, she helped with our older one. Childbirth is difficult. I don’t think this new mom realizes she won’t be able to do it all. — SHANA IN LOUISIANA DEAR ABBY: Has “Family First” considered that her daughter-in-law’s mother may be coming? Unfair as it may seem, in cultures around the
world, the role of the paternal grandmother is far different than that of the maternal grandmother. — KNOWS FOR SURE IN KENYA DEAR ABBY: My son and DIL told everyone, including the other grandparents, who live near them, they wanted NO visitors for at least six weeks. That sad grandma needs to brush up on her Skype and Facetime skills so she can see them frequently on her computer and phone. We do this with our kids. In the first year, the baby learned our voices and saw our faces often. When we met again, it was like we’d always been there. — COMPUTER GRANNY DEAR ABBY: While she isn’t invited to be there for the birth of her first grandchild, I’m sure her son and DIL will be begging her to come for the next one. After a week of no sleep, they are going to wish they had told her yes this time! — GRANNY IN ILLINOIS DEAR ABBY: When I declined my mother-in-law’s offer to help out when my son was born, she paid to have a catering service deliver daily three-course dinners for two weeks so I wouldn’t have to cook. It was the best gift I ever received, and I love her for it! — LISA IN NORTH CAROLINA (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). Good fortune will depend on how people react to your deeds. Ponder the best approach. If you’re bold, you’ll earn the public’s support. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Even those who don’t appear to hear the call of the wild will heed it. They may deny their animal nature, but that won’t make it go away. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Someone you’re trying to help is being difficult — a sign that he or she does not in fact need the help so desperately. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re not feeling completely enamored with a partnership, but it could still work out brilliantly, as many “marriages of convenience” do. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). In regard to sand castles and domino
mazes, futility is the whole point. Some games are made for destruction, and you have a more satisfying experience with them when you keep this in mind. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You can fake applause more easily than you can fake laughter, and you may have to do both to get through today’s little show. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The person who is being greedy is really afraid that people won’t think enough of him or her to provide for deep-seated needs. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll have fun doing away with the formalities. Start a conversation in the middle or, even better, about three-quarters of the way through. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your intention changes an interaction. Instead of being concerned with what you can get out of a relationship, you’ll
think only about enjoying the other person, who in turn will become most enjoyable. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll receive psychic information and know what a person is feeling or, more likely, hiding. This doesn’t mean you have to call the person out. The kind thing would be to quietly make note and keep it to yourself. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’re happy to help loved ones, but not when you’re doing about 20 other things at the same time. Maybe you need more help than the people who are asking for it! PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You don’t have to change a thing about what you’re doing; you just have to do it for a longer period of time. The resistance you are encountering eventually will wear down.

T.Y. HILTON, WR, COLTS Andrew Luck earned the first playoff win of his career, thanks in large part to his go-to wideout and 2012 draft classmate. Hilton ran wild, with 13 catches for 224 yards (17.2 ypc) and two TDs — including a 64-yard score — during an improbable 45–44 win over the Chiefs. Trailing 38–10 in the third quarter, Luck and Hilton led the Colts to the second-largest come-from-behind victory in playoff history, trailing only the Buffalo Bills’ 32-point comeback against the Houston Oilers in a 41–38 overtime thriller in January 1993. COLIN KAEPERNICK, QB, 49ERS Not quite déjà vu all over again, but not bad. Kaepernick improved his career record against the Packers to 3–0 following a 23–20 victory at Lambeau Field. The dual-threat signal-caller completed 16-of-30 passes for 227 yards, one scoring strike and one pick, while scrambling seven times for 98 yards (14.0 ypc). In three games against Green Bay, Kaepernick has now combined to pass for 902 yards, six TDs and two INTs, while rushing for 301 yards and two trips to the end zone. Playing in temperatures that felt like minus-10, Kaepernick stayed warm by torching the Pack through the air and on the ground.

Amazing statistics from Wild Card Weekend By BRADEN GALL Athlon Sports Editor
The most intriguing, important, historic and bizarre stats from the NFL’s Wild Card Weekend:
Second-largest playoff comeback in NFL history The four-touchdown comeback was the second largest in NFL history, trailing only the Bills’ miraculous and infamous comeback against Houston. Buffalo overcame a 32point deficit in the 1992 Wild Card game against the Oilers to win in overtime.
NFL-record consecutive playoff losses for Kansas City The Chiefs were leading 31–10 at halftime and pushed their lead to 38–10 early in the third quarter. Andrew Luck and the Colts then outscored Kansas City 35–6 over the final 27 minutes of play to win 45–44 in Lucas Oil Stadium. The loss for the Chiefs was an NFLrecord eighth consecutive playoff defeat dating back to a 1993 win over Houston in the AFC Divisional Round. The Lions have the secondlongest losing streak with seven losses in a row, while Cleveland, Dallas, Minnesota, Seattle and the New York Giants each have had a six-game playoff losing streak.
Athlon Board of Experts This Week’s Games & Experts’ Records Saints at Seahawks (Sat.) Colts at Patriots (Sat.) 49ers at Panthers Chargers at Broncos
Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck had an historic afternoon, with a 28-point come-from-behind win — his 11th career fourth-quarter or overtime comeback win.
Saints’ all-time road playoff wins Entering Wild Card weekend, New Orleans had never won a road playoff game in nearly 50 years of NFL football. The Saints had lost all five previous road postseason games before topping the Eagles 26–24 in Philadelphia.
12.1 Colin Kaepernick’s career playoff yards per carry vs. Green Bay Colin Kaepernick is 3–0 against the Packers in his short career, including two playoff wins in each of the last two seasons. His ability to make things happen with his legs has been the death of the Green Bay defense in each of the two playoff games. Kaepernick has rushed 23 times for 279 yards and two touchdowns at an astonishing 12.1-yard clip in two playoff wins over the Packers.
Wind chill temperature at kickoff in Lambeau Field The coldest game in NFL history was the “Ice Bowl” in 1967 between Green Bay and Dallas at minus-13 degrees at kickoff with minus-48 wind chill. The “Freezer Bowl” was the second-coldest in NFL history when the Bengals beat the Chargers in minus-9 temperatures in the face of an absurd minus-59 wind chill.
14–0 Chargers’ record when Philip Rivers attempts 21 or fewer passes The Chargers ran the ball 40 times for 196 yards to beat the Bengals. Rivers completed 12-of-16 passes in the game for 128 yards in the win. In 128 regular-season and eight career playoff starts, Rivers has thrown fewer than 16 passes three times and 21 or fewer just 14 times in a start, including two playoff victories.

SAINTS (12-5) AT SEAHAWKS (13-3) The last time Seattle hosted New Orleans in a playoff game, Marshawn Lynch set the tone with a now-iconic run that epitomized his nickname, “Beast Mode.” Lynch broke eight tackles over the course of 67 yards on his way to the end zone during a 41–36 Seahawks victory over the Saints. The run — known as the “Beast Quake” due to the amount of noise and reverberations caused by the “12th Man” fans at CenturyLink Field — registered 90 seconds of seismic activity and set the tone for the next several years of football in Seattle. The 2010 season marked the first for both Lynch and coach Pete Carroll, a duo that — along with quarterback Russell Wilson, cornerback Richard Sherman and several other notable Hawks — has changed the culture in the Pacific Northwest. Fans love Lynch so much, they’re rallying to raise $50,000 to pay for the fine he was levied for not speaking to the media in 2013. Lynch will likely let his play do the talking against New Orleans, a team that also lost in Seattle 34–7 in Week 13 this year. That game immediately followed the Seahawks’ bye week. So does this week’s matchup. COLTS (12-5) AT PATRIOTS (12-4) Tom Brady’s playoff resume is immaculate. Five Super Bowl appearances, three Super Bowl rings, a 17–7 postseason record and 11–3 mark at New England. Brady’s three home playoff losses came against eventual Super Bowl champion Baltimore (28–13) last season, against the division-rival Jets (28–21) following the 2010 season and to Baltimore after the 2009 campaign. In those three defeats, Brady has combined to throw five TDs and six INTs. Upon further review, however, Brady has been beatable since that first playoff loss in Foxborough, with a 3–4 playoff record since losing his air of invincibility at Robert Kraft’s house. Sure, Brady’s 17 playoff wins are the most all time. But 14 of those came before he suffered a season-ending knee injury in the 2008 opener. Further proof of Tom Terrific’s mortality comes with the news that he is carrying around a “little bit” of a cold this week. “But I’ll live,” he says. On the other side, Andrew Luck carries a 1–1 postseason record. But his one win was one for the ages, as the second-year stud led the Colts from a 28-point deficit to beat the Chiefs and earn the right to play Brady’s Patriots.
Wild, Wild Card
Andrew Luck’s fourth-quarter or overtime game-winning drives since 2012 Sunday marked Luck’s 11th comeback win since he was selected No. 1 in the 2012 NFL Draft. Tony Romo and Russell Wilson are tied for second behind Luck with nine fourth-quarter or overtime gamewinning drives since the start of the ’12 season. Joe Flacco and Matt Ryan each have eight such drives.
Saints quarterback DREW BREES seemingly has it all — a $100 million contract, Super Bowl ring (and MVP award), multiple national endorsement deals and a beautiful family (judging from his Tide commercials). But Brees is just like everyone else when it comes to playing in Seattle. In Week 13, Brees threw for a season-low 147 yards and one TD in a 34–7 loss, which was New Orleans’ worst defeat of the season. Brees will need to step up his game in front of the “12th Man” this weekend.

Consensus 169-90-1 Seahawks by 7 Patriots by 6 49ers by 2 Broncos by 5
49ERS (13-4) AT PANTHERS (12-4) Colin Kaepernick vs. Cam Newton. These two video game quarterbacks weigh in at 6'5", 245 and 6'4", 230, respectively. The duo combined to pass for 6,576 yards, 45 TDs and 21 INTs. They combined to scramble for 1,109 yards and 10 TDs. CK and Cam are changing the way the game is being played. When they get together the scoreboard will explode or at least catch fire from all the stats and points and long bombs and breakaway speed. Wait? They already played this year? And it was a 10–9 defensive struggle in which neither Kaepernick nor Newton found the end zone. Kaepernick threw for a season-low 91 yards with one INT and 16 rush yards in the Week 10 defeat. Newton didn’t do much better, passing for 169 yards with one INT and 15 rush yards in victory. The hero that day was kicker Graham Gano, who hit a 53-yard FG with 10:05 remaining to give the Cats a lead they would not relinquish. For the record, Niners kicker Phil Dawson also hit a 53-yarder that day. So expect long field goals when San Fran hits Charlotte this week. CHARGERS (10-7) AT BRONCOS (13-3) An AFC West division showdown pits the Bolts against the Broncos. The two rivals split the season series, with each team winning on the road. Denver won 28–20 at San Diego in Week 10, with Peyton Manning passing for 330 yards, four scores and zero INTs. The Chargers pulled off a 27–20 upset at Mile High in Week 15, the second of four-straight wins to close the season and vault San Diego into the playoffs. Last season, the Broncos swept the Bolts, winning 35–24 at San Diego in Week 6 and 30–23 at home in Week 11. For those living under a rock or far, far away from the Rockies, Manning has posted the greatest statistical season in NFL history en route to what will likely be his fifth MVP award — passing for a record 5,477 yards, a record 55 TDs and 10 INTs for a 115.1 passer rating. Although not quite Manningesque, Philip Rivers has been throwing lightning bolts during San Diego’s current five-game winning streak. The polarizing passer has completed an efficient 68.3 percent of his passes for 973 yards, 10 TDs and two INTs in wins over the Giants, Broncos, Raiders, Chiefs and Bengals. Plus, he’s been screaming a lot.
Allen to return for 3rd season as Raiders coach Associated Press
ALAMEDA, Calif. — Coach Dennis Allen will be part of the reconstruction of the Oakland Raiders after spending his first two years overseeing the deconstruction. Allen is scheduled to meet Wednesday with owner Mark Davis and general manager Reggie McKenzie to map out plans for how to rebuild the struggling franchise after consecutive four-win seasons to begin his tenure. Allen said after the season that he had been given an indication that he would be back for a third season but he still needed to talk with Davis. That meeting happened Tuesday night and now the Raiders can start planning for 2014. Oakland has gone 11 straight seasons without
a playoff berth or winning record and has an NFLworst 123 losses since the start of 2003. The team has had seven coaches in that span with Allen becoming the first to get the chance to coach three full seasons as Mark Davis is showing more patience than his demanding father, Al, did before his death in 2011. Allen is the eighth coach since the 1970 merger to be brought back for a third season after losing at least 24 games their first two years. The results of the seven previous are mixed. Bill Walsh won three Super Bowl titles in San Francisco and Jimmy Johnson won two in Dallas after being retained following two tough seasons. John McKay stayed with the expansion Tampa Bay Buccaneers and led them
to the NFC championship in his fourth year and two more playoff appearances. Jim Schwartz led Detroit to the playoffs in his third season. But not all the coaches were successful. Tom Flores got fired in Seattle and Steve Spagnuolo got let go in St. Louis after posting a third straight losing season. David Shula had two more losing seasons in Cincinnati before being fired midway through his fifth year with the Bengals. The only one of those seven coaches to be brought back despite showing no increase in win total in the second year was Shula. The situation Allen inherited in Oakland when he was hired by McKenzie after the 2011 season was difficult. Years of poor drafts and bad salary cap
management forced Oakland into a major two-year tear down that left only 13 players on the end-ofseason active roster who played with the team in 2011. Now Allen gets a chance to be part of building the team back up this offseason when Oakland has nearly a full complement of draft picks starting with the fifth selection overall and more than $60 million in salary cap room. Some of that money will likely be used to keep some of the 18 potential unrestricted free agents in Oakland before they can hit the open market in March. Among the key free agents the Raiders may look to keep are left tackle Jared Veldheer, defensive end Lamarr Houston, defensive backs Charles Woodson and Tracy Porter and running
back Rashad Jennings. With the coach in place, the biggest decision this offseason will be finding a starting quarterback after getting inconsistent play this season from Terrelle Pryor and Matt McGloin. With few desirable options available in free agency, the Raiders could use their first-round pick on a quarterback in a class that will likely include prospects like Teddy Bridgewater, Blake Bortles, Derek Carr and Johnny Manziel. While the Raiders showed no improvement in their win total in year two under Allen in part because of an improved division that featured three playoff teams, the product on the field was better despite being hampered by having more than 40 percent of the salary cap used on players no
longer on the team. The running game and red zone offense were vastly improved under first-year coordinator Greg Olson, while the defense had its best season against the run since 2002 and did a much better job rushing the passer. But the defense wilted late in the season and allowed the second most points per game (28.3) in franchise history. Allen, the former defensive coordinator in Denver, was expected to improve the defense, but has instead overseen two of the three highest scoring seasons in franchise history. It remains to be seen how many assistant coaches will be back next season. Most were in the final year of their contracts and could decide to leave or may not be brought back.

Rebels open SEC play sans Henderson Associated Press
Marshall Henderson’s poor behavior last season could come back to hurt Mississippi this week. The Rebels (9-4) will be without their leading scorer, who is averaging 18.8 points per game, during Thursday’s Southeastern Conference opener against Auburn (8-3) at Tad Smith Coliseum. Ole Miss knew this was coming. Henderson will miss the team’s first two SEC games as part of a school-imposed suspension announced in October. The 6-foot-2 senior was suspended a total of three games — the season opener
on Nov. 8 against Troy and the two upcoming SEC games — for on-and off-the-court issues during and following last season. By all accounts, Henderson hasn’t caused any problems this year, but that’s irrelevant as coach Andy Kennedy tries to develop a plan to beat Auburn. “Other people are going to have to fill (Henderson’s) void,” Kennedy said. “We’re going to have to do it by committee. I can’t ask one guy to step in and fill that role.” Henderson isn’t a particularly good defender, but his ability to score is undeniable. His numbers are down slight-
ly from last season, when he averaged more than 20 points per game, but he still leads the SEC with 53 3-pointers. “Yeah, we will have to change,” Kennedy said. “We’ll have to change the way we play on both sides. We will have a little more flexibility defensively. We won’t have to use so much smoke and mirrors. Offensively, obviously it’s going to be a challenge.” The Rebels will lean on junior Jarvis Summers, who has nearly doubled his scoring output from last season and scored a career-high 29 points against Dayton on Saturday. The 6-foot-3 guard is averaging 17.8 points per
game while shooting 55.2 percent from the field, including 54.5 percent from 3-point range. He also leads the team with more than three assists per game and is a good defender. “Jarvis is our best player,” Kennedy said. “He’s not our most hyped player, but he’s our best player and has been all season.” Ole Miss is trying to get back to the NCAA tournament after making it last season for the first time since 2002. But some close losses during non-conference play to Oregon, Mercer, Dayton Please see REBELS | 13
Northeast finds solace in Jones’ sweep BY BLAKE LONG NE Sports Information
BOONEVILLE — Cord Wright’s Northeast Mississippi Community College men’s basketball team accomplished something on Tuesday night that no other squad has done so far in the 2013-14 season. The Tigers held No. 15 Jones County Junior College below 80 total points for the first time this year, but the Bobcats held off the upset bid with a 58-48 win inside Bonner Arnold Coliseum. “I told our guys that they gave a phenomenal effort on both ends of the floor,” said Wright, Northeast’s headman. “We did a great job rebounding the ball and those guys just competed. If you play hard, you can build off of that.” Jones County has crossed the century mark on five occasions during this campaign and entered the matchup averaging 93.4 points per game, which is the highest mark among members of the Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges (MACJC). The Bobcats were the 14thbest team in the nation and tops in the league with a field goal percentage of 52.1, but Northeast held its guests to a season-low 37.9 percent from the floor. The previous low final score for Jones County (10-1) was 83 in a victory over Delgado (La.) Community College in November.

Northeast guard Dimario Jackson had a game-high 18 points, but the Tigers fell to the Jones County Bobcats 58-48. “I think every guy who stepped on that floor and played minutes did extremely well,” said Wright. “I tell you what, I can’t pinpoint one guy over any other. It was a complete team effort.” Point guard Dimario Jackson ran Wright’s offensive plan to perfection and also
led all scorers on the evening. The Brusly, La., product hit 8 of 16 field goal attempts for 18 points, his top effort since dropping 23 in a triumph at Gadsden State (Ala.) Community College on November 4. “If I don’t manage (the offense), then all my guys will be out of spot,” said Jackson. “We
knew that they wanted to play a fast paced game so we knew we had to slow it down in order for us to have a chance.” Northeast (3-9) trailed 31-23 at the break, but put together two furious second half rallies to come within one possession Please see TIGERS | 13
Maddux, Glavine, Thomas elected to Hall Associated Press
NEW YORK — Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas were elected to baseball’s Hall of Fame on Wednesday, while Craig Biggio fell two votes short and tainted stars of the Steroids Era remained a long way from Cooperstown. Maddux was picked on 555 of 571 ballots by senior members of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. His 97.2 percentage was the eighth-highest in the history of voting. Glavine, Maddux’s longtime teammate in the Atlanta rotation, appeared on 525 ballots and received 91.9 percent. Thomas, the first Hall of Famer who spent the majority of his
career as a designated hitter, was at 478 and 83.7 percent. Thomas said he accepts the view of many Hall of Famers that players whose accomplishments are muddied by accusations of steroid use, such as Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens, don’t belong in the Hall. “I’ve got to take the right stance, too. No, they shouldn’t get in,” he said. “There shouldn’t be cheating allowed to get into the Hall of Fame.” The trio will be inducted July 27 along with managers Bobby Cox, Joe Torre and Tony La Russa, elected last month by the expansion-era committee. Maddux and Glavine, who played under Cox for most of their careers, will become the
first pair of 300-game winners to be inducted in the same year. “It’s exciting for me to go in with my teammate,” Maddux said. The only other time three players were elected together in their first appearances was in 1999 with Nolan Ryan, George Brett and Robin Yount. Biggio received 427 votes and 74.8 percent, matching Nellie Fox in 1985 and Pie Traynor in 1947 for the smallest margin to just miss. Traynor made it the following year, and Fox was elected by the old Veterans Committee in 1997. Biggio, who spent his entire career with the Houston As-
tros, appeared on 388 ballots last year in his initial appearance — when writers failed to elect anyone — and appears to be on track to gain election next year. “Obviously, I’m disappointed to come that close,” he said in a statement. “I feel for my family, the organization and the fans. Hopefully, next year.” Mike Piazza was next with 62.2 percent, up from 57.8 last year. Jack Morris was 78 votes short at 61.5 percent in his 15th and final appearance on the writers’ ballot, a drop from 67.7 percent. Morris replaces Gil Hodges (63 percent in 1983) as the player with the highest-percentage of the vote not in the Hall.
Johnny NFL: Manziel leaving Texas A&M Associated Press
Johnny Football is heading to the NFL. Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel declared for the NFL draft on Wednesday following two spectacular seasons in which he became the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy and helped the Aggies make a splash in their first two years in the Southeastern Conference. “After long discussions with my family, friends, teammates, and coaches, I have decided to make myself available for the 2014 NFL draft,” Manziel said in a letter posted online by the university. “The decision was not an easy one, but we all felt this was the right time to
make the next step toward a professional career.” Some NFL draft analysts have Manziel ranked as high as the third overall pick in mock drafts. In a style befitting his record-setting career, Manziel led the Aggies to a 5248 come-from-behind win over Duke in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl on New Year’s Eve in his final college game. Texas A&M trailed 38-17 at halftime before Manziel guided them to the victory by finishing with 382 yards passing with four TD tosses and 73 yards rushing and another score. “In all of my years of coaching, Johnny Manziel is the most exciting football
player I have ever seen,” A&M coach Kevin Sumlin said. “We appreciate everything he has done for Texas A&M and Aggie football and wish him nothing but the best.” Manziel became the first freshman to win the Heisman in 2012 after setting numerous school and SEC records while leading Texas A&M to an 11-2 record and a victory over No. 1 Alabama in its first season in the SEC. His dynamic play created a frenzy and pushed him into a stratosphere of celebrity that few college athletes have reached. That began to cause problems since Manziel, who is from Kerrville, Texas, still had three years
of eligibility remaining. He followed his Heismanwinning season with a highprofile offseason of road trips to Las Vegas and the NBA Finals. Manziel met Heat star LeBron James and rapper Drake, and he posted some tweets that made headlines. One that brought the ire of Aggie fans was when he said he “couldn’t wait” to get out of College Station. His most embarrassing blunder came during the summer when he departed early from a quarterback camp for high school players run by the Manning family in Louisiana. Manziel said it was a mutual decision after he overslept and missed meetings and activities.

and Kansas State have put a dent in the Rebels’ resume. Getting off to a good start in conference play is crucial. Without Henderson, it will almost certainly be more difficult. Auburn has lost four straight games to Ole Miss in a streak that dates nearly two years. But the Tigers come into Thursday’s game on a fourgame winning streak, which includes victories over Clemson and Boston College. Junior K.T. Harrell leads the SEC with 19.4 points per game. Senior

TIGERS guard Chris Denson is right behind him with 19 points per game. Denson said he expects Ole Miss to be a difficult opponent despite Henderson’s absence. “They have Jarvis Summers and Derrick Millinghaus and are still a tough team,” Denson said. “It’s a plus that he’s not playing but we are still going in there with the same mentality and same attitude.” The Ole Miss-Auburn matchup is likely to be high scoring. The Rebels ranked third in the SEC with 79.8 points per game while Auburn is fourth at 76.9.

of the lead. A three-point basket from the corner by Cannon Edwards capped a 9-2 run out of halftime by the Tigers to cut Jones County’s advantage to 33-32 with 16:28 on the clock. Johnny Zuppardo knocked down seven quick points and the Bobcats scored 13 of the next 15 to take a seemingly comfortable 46-34 lead. The Tigers caught a second wind and again fought back into the contest. A fast six-point spurt with makes by Al Azulphar, Ladarius Waits and Jackson cut Northeast’s deficit to 49-46 in the waning minutes. However, the Bobcats were able to withstand the late comeback from the Tigers with late baskets from Leo Garrett and Bryce Jones. Jones County has four athletes that average double figures, but only two reached that feat on this night. Zuppardo topped the Bobcats with 17 while Thaddeus Hall added 11, down from his team-best mark of 16.4 per outing. Azulphar saw just 15 minutes for the Tigers in their opening contest of the spring semester, but still recorded a doubledouble, the first of his career, with 12 points and 11
rebounds. “Al’s continuing to get better,” said Wright. “He’s starting to turn the corner and get more aggressive. I see good things coming his way.” Northeast outrebounded their adversary 38-31, led by Azulphar’s effort and Dexter Stafford’s eight boards.
(W) Jones County 78, Northeast 69 The Lady Bobcats constantly gave Antionette Riddle an open path to the basket and the Tupelo native took advantage. She continued her impressive sophomore campaign by tying a career-high with 22 points in a close loss to Jones County. “When I drive into the lane of course I’m looking to score, but I’m also looking to bring in the defense,” she said. “I’m just looking to make my team better and look for options for them.” Northeast trailed by as many as 15 in the opening half after two free throws by Crystal Clay, but edged to within seven at the intermission thanks to makes from behind the arc by Jasmine Allen, Kiki Gwyn and Lexy Lindsey. Jones County (7-4) reestablished a double-digit advantage just over four minutes into the second after a Latisha McCullum

getting better, but it’s time to put it together,” said Lady Tigers head coach Brian Alexander. “Our team knows that. Even though some of those stats are good, we’ve got to look each other in the eyes and say they’re not quite good enough and we’ve got to figure out a way to get it done.” Both Northeast hoops squads face a short turnaround with Wallace State (Ala.)

The Lady Tigers did score 13 of the game’s final 18 points, with Teresa Mays and Riddle combining for nine in that stretch, but time ran out on the Northeast (4-7) come from behind push. Forwards Starla Daggans and Kaylan Hughes each scored 17 as Jones County tallied 46 points in the paint. Crystal Clay barely missed a doubledouble with 16 points and nine rebounds. The Lady Bobcats shot only 28.6 percent shooting from three-point land. It is the seventh time in 11 outings by Northeast that its opponent has been held below 30 percent in that category. Teresa Mays joined Riddle as one of the Lady Tigers’ top scorers with 10. A Wooddale High School product, it is Mays’ fifth straight contest to reach double figures. Aushiana Ivy and Daisha Williams both flirted with double-doubles. Ivy, from Tupelo, scored nine points and had 10 rebounds while Williams, a Columbus native, also had nine points with a careerbest eight boards. Northeast’s defense forced 24 turnovers and also brought in 10 steals, including three apiece from Ivy and Riddle. “I’m pleased with us
