Four towns host elections this year BY JEBB JOHNSTON

Attention turns to cities and towns across Mississippi for elections in 2017. While Corinth is one of the handful of exceptions, the rest

of Alcorn County’s municipalities — Farmington, Rienzi, Glen and Kossuth — will elect mayors and aldermen this year. The candidate qualifying period for those offices opened last week and continues through

March 3. The municipal general election date is June 6, and party primaries, in cities that have races with party affiliation, will be held May 2. Dale Fortenberry, mayor of the county’s second-largest mu-

Four Corinth Fire Department units responded to the Tuesday night fire at Yamato Steak House of Japan on South Cass Street.

Firefighters snuff out blaze quickly BY ZACK STEEN

A minor fire at a busy Corinth restaurant caused some concern for emergency personnel on Tuesday night. Around 13 firefighters from four units of the Corinth Fire Department responded to the fire at Yamato Steak House of Japan around 8:20 p.m.

Training Officer Jerry Whirley said the fire, although small, did cause some issues for those who responded. “Any time there is a fire at a business, we’re all on high alert,” said Whirley. “This fire was electrical in nature and appears to have started inside a junction box on the roof.” When firefighters arrived,

flames were visible on the roof and smoke could be seen inside the restaurant at 602 South Cass Street. “Truck 1 did an excellent job getting on the scene quickly. They used a ladder truck to gain access to the roof of the business,” said Whirley.

People share ways to lift Winter spirits BY KIMBERLY SHELTON

With the winter season now in full swing, many Crossroads residents are searching for ways to lift their spirits during the most depressing time of year. From braving slick, ice-covered roads to piling on layers upon layers of clothing in an effort to try and stay warm, almost everyone seems to be falling into the winter doldrums. The sun’s rays are weakened and even the smallest of tasks seem like a chore, but there

“For example, one woman has four kids with two in junior high and two in high school. She’s at the gym three nights a week. She’s having to pay $5 each for her children to go to these ball games.” Daniel Cooper, District 3 board member

People of the Crossroads Jessica Pollard Jessica Pollard has been learning the ropes of municipal government since becoming the town clerk for Rienzi in July. “The community and the people have really welcomed me,” she said. “I really enjoy it.” She likes to work with the public and previously was employed for 10 years at Booneville’s Chevrolet dealership, Courtesy Automotive. “This is a whole different ballgame,” said Pollard. “There’s a lot to it.” A New Site High School graduate, she has an 8-yearold daughter, Maddie Grace, and her husband is Aaron Pollard.

Often accompanied by sadness, fatigue, hunger and trouble sleeping, Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), also known as the “Winter Blues” or “Winter Depression,” is a very real disorder which can affect even the most cheerful of dispositions. “Science says the ‘Winter Blues’ are real because we get less sunshine,” said Blue Mountain College Language and Literature Professor

Sherrell Settlemires. “My advice is to stay in well-lit rooms and get exercise which increases endorphins, a body hormone that elevates mood.” Farmington resident Tabitha Patience Duncan believes that the drastic shift in outlooks is due to being cooped up indoors. “I believe it’s more depressing because you can’t get out and its cold,” she said. Kroger employee Brandon Vanderford of Rienzi agrees. “It’s a real thing. There’s less sunshine, fewer outdoor activities and holiday stress. Plus, the kids are back in school and all that goes with that,” he said. “It’s definitely more stressful than

summer time for most.” Executive Director Crystal Sweeney of the Corinth Ballet recommends taking advantage of the sun’s benefits. “I get up at sunrise to combat them and get the much needed vitamin D,” said the Turning Pointe Dance Academy owner. Franklin Courtyard Owner Margaret Bradley agreed whole-heartedly saying that “sunshine provides a special vitamin for the soul.” Gift Bottom resident Keith Jones is just trying to stay busy and keep his mind occupied. “Having to stay inside makes me nervous and agitated,” he said. “I always make sure I have an inside project to work on. This year’s task is to rework one of the bathroom shower stalls.” “That should keep me busy,” he added. Author Robert Broughton expressed his senti-

ments when it comes to the seasons. “I mourn the winter and celebrate the spring,” he said. Booneville resident Joel Counce believes the shorter days and less vitamin D are definitely a factor. “I just try and do things I would do when I’m happy,” he said. “I hang out with people who make me laugh, watch something funny on TV or just go do something I’d normally do for fun.” Katie Rippy of Corinth suggests eating foods that are high in antioxidants. “Consuming fruits and vegetables such as blueberries and spinach will help keep your immune system working which is a huge plus with all the colds that spread this time of year.” Having lived up north for much of her life, Corinth resident Nora Kelly spent two years in

When my wife and I go out to eat, if there is good country ham available, that is her choice.

There were two reasons for going through that process, weren’t there? One was to preserve the meat; to keep it from spoiling. The second reason, which was really a bonus, is the wonderful flavor it brings to the meat. In our modern homes, virtually every conceivable convenience is available; for a price of course. One of the most used is electric lights. They are found in every room in our house; in the ceiling, in lamps on the floor, lamps on the tables, and under kitchen cabinets. All we have to do to chase away the darkness in any and every corner of our house is just flip a switch or two. Jesus used salt and light to illustrate the permeating influence that is found in the lives of his disciples. “You are the salt of the earth:” “you are the light of the world.”(Matthew 5:13, 14) Salt has a saving quality when applied to meats, and certain other things as well. Salt also has a purifying, or cleaning effect, so long as the salt is still “salty” or good. If not, it is “good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.” (Matthew 5:13) Light dispels darkness. “Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.” (Matthew 5:15) Light keeps us from stumbling, yet some choose to live in darkness because their deeds are evil. (John 3:19) “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”(Matthew 5:16) Is your salt still good, having that saving, cleansing influence in the lives of those about you. Do your friends and neighbors see Christ in your life, or have you been overcome by Satan and the world? Is your light burning brightly, showing the way to Jesus, or has it been snuffed out by sin in your life? We invite you to study and worship with us at the Danville church of Christ.

Fairbanks, Alaska while going to college. “The daylight hours only lasted for maybe five or six hours in the heart of winter and could get down in the -40s,” she said. “Getting daily vitamins, using full spectrum light bulbs and maintaining your routine go a long way in helping.” “Also, if weather permits, get out, visit with friends or take a walk,” she continued. “Stay busy and listen to upbeat music.” Surrounding ourselves with lighter, happier shades of color can also lift our mood. “I even made my husband, Casey paint our living room a lighter shade,” said Martin, Tennessee resident Michal Ortner. “I also open up the window blinds when it’s practical and not 10 degrees outside.” A former resident of Corinth, Photographer Dez Newcomb says there are a lot of things that can be done to banish the blues. “We use essential oils like Doterra’s “Cheer” in diffusers and humidifiers which seems to help,” she said. “UV light lamps are also a good investment since they mimic the sun’s rays.” “It is very important to spent at least 20 minutes per day in the sun which can be very hard for people who go to work and school,” she added. Katie Sexton of Horn Lake tries to make healthier choices in the winter. “I try to spend a little more time in the sun and eat better,” she said. “I also sometimes take a multi-vitamin.” Bolivar, Tenn., resident Greg Rivers believes a change of scenery is in order. “The best way to shake the blues is to get on a ship and take a cruise,” he said. “Head south to the warm air and blue sea.” For those unable to spend some time aboard a cruise, a short road trip, a visit to a loved one’s home or a peaceful stroll could be just the ticket. Dressing weather appropriately, getting adequate sleep and staying hydrated are a few other steps in the right direction.


Both customers and workers were inside the South Gate Shopping Center steak house when the fire occurred. Whirley said no injuries were reported. ACE Power responded to cut power and a Corinth Police Department officer was also on the scene handling traffic control. “Thankfully the fire caused them very little damage,” said Whirley. “They actually reopened for business as normal on Wednesday.”

Today in History Today is Thursday, Jan. 12, the 12th day of 2017. There are 353 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Jan. 12, 1910, at a White House dinner hosted by President William Howard Taft, Baroness Rosen, wife of the Russian ambassador, caused a stir by requesting and smoking a cigarette — it was, apparently, the first time a woman had smoked openly during a public function in the executive mansion. (Some of the other women present who had brought their own cigarettes began lighting up in turn.)

On this date: In 1959, Berry Gordy Jr. founded Motown Records (originally Tamla Records) in Detroit. In 1966, President Lyndon B. Johnson said in his State of the Union address that the U.S. military should stay in Vietnam until Communist aggression there was stopped. In 1987, Anglican Church envoy Terry Waite arrived in Lebanon on his latest mission to win the release of Western hostages. Waite ended up being taken captive himself, and wasn’t released until 1991. In 1998, Linda Tripp provided Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr’s office with taped conversations between herself and former White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

Corinth, Miss.

Resolving to unpack a ratty house When my mother died, her house sold quickly and we didn’t have the luxury of time to sort through her many possessions. I spent less than one week at the home place, deciding what to pack on the Rheta back of my old pickup truck. That was tough but probJohnson ably just as well. One could Columnist have made a second career of sorting my mother’s keepsakes. She collected things. She kept things. All things. There was a cabinet full of old florist vases. There were stacks high as Peruvian burial mounds of Christmas cards dating back 30 years, and letters much older than that. One thing I claimed was a sewing machine drawer full of postcards she’d filed through the years. You couldn’t have gotten a piece of dental floss between the cards. Whenever I’d visit, I liked going through that drawer, seeing who had been where, when. Many were cards she bought herself on our Florida vacation trips when I was small. Those brought back memories of an unair-conditioned Buick that took us to exotic places: Cypress Gardens, where women waterskied without getting their hair wet. Citrus Tower, from which you could see miles of orange groves, and with a souvenir shop that sold perfume in tiny bottles shaped like perfect oranges and subject to spill. Bok Tower, which we called the Singing Tower, where carillon recitals reverberated through the woods of a Central Florida before Disney. Mother loved calendars. I inherited that inability to throw away a beautiful calendar, though lately I’ve limited myself to the ones featuring French scenes. She kept them all. She loved dishes. I also got the genetic disposition to be suckered in by a primrose pattern. At Mother’s house, dishes were stored in cabinets, under beds, beneath the livingroom sofa, which turned out to be a trove of breakables, including gargantuan ashtrays, clean for decades. I’m the same way, except worse. I even like cracked dishes, sets missing the dinner plates, coffee cups without handles. My older sister wanted Mother’s fine china, but I took the oddball pieces she kept on the high shelves. They were more interesting. Mother kept careful mental inventory of everything she had. The older she got, the more it worried her not to see a certain something in its accustomed place. If you rearranged, it threw her into searching mode and made her sure someone had offed with a toothpick holder shaped like a skunk or a whiskey decanter like a duck. It was best to dust and put things back in their usual places, even if there wasn’t room for another single object on most tabletops, mantels and shelves. She knew where they belonged. And she knew their stories, which she shared. I have resolved not to leave as many possessions for my niece to sort. Because I don’t have what Mother had: four children. My poor niece will have to go it alone, and I envision her lean, athletic frame overcome by crazy objects that she does not even associate with a good story. She won’t know the doorstop rock came from Crazy Horse’s eyeball in South Dakota, or that the ornate level was my late husband’s carpenter grandfather’s. She doesn’t know I got the red coffeepot in France. With any luck, she’ll have a deadline to get rid of the weird contents of a old house packed with stories I’ve mostly told to myself. Rheta Grimsley Johnson’s most recent book is “Hank Hung the Moon ... And Warmed Our Cold, Cold Hearts.” Comments are welcomed at

Prayer for today Gracious Father, cause me to be critical of my life, that I may not be deceived in myself. Help me to look into my soul and see what thou dost find there; and with humility may I acknowledge what I am to thee, and seek thy wisdom and love. Amen.

A verse to share He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the LORD and put their trust in him. —Psalm 40:3

Alabama’s ‘Amazon’ tax a blueprint for state STARKVILLE — Here is a little trigger warning for readers tired of the issue – I’m writing about online sales taxes again. So what’s new? Well, at of the beginning of the new year in 2017, the 45 states and the District of Columbia – those that collect sales taxes – are still struggling to capture lost revenues from online sales. Why are they struggling? Well, Congress and the Supreme Court still have not provided an easy path around the court’s 1992 ruling in the Quill v. North Dakota case. The Quill case dictated that sellers must collect sales tax from out-ofstate customers only if they have a physical brick-andmortar presence in the customer’s state of residence. Yet a growing number of states are extending sales taxes to online retailers with in-state sales affiliates. Amazon, the online retail giant, now collects sales taxes in all but a dozen of the U.S. states that collect sales taxes – including Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas. In truth, the tax is technically a “use” tax levied on an item purchased without paying your home state’s

sales tax but that you bring back to your home to use. In other words, Sid Salter the law says you owe Columnist the tax but there is no one compelling you to pay it. The tax is owed under law, but paid on the – and I use this term loosely – the honor system. You owed the tax from the moment you hit “send” on the online order. Yet unlike the momand-pop bookstore or grocery or hardware emporium operated by your hometown friends and neighbors, nobody is ringing up that sales tax as part of the sale. But beginning Jan. 1, Amazon will now voluntarily be adding appropriate sales tax amounts to items they sell to customers in Louisiana. The company negotiated a similar agreement that began enforcement on Nov. 1, 2016 in Alabama. Louisiana offered Amazon a choice – document taxable purchases delivered to the customers or collect the applicable taxes. Amazon decided it was cheaper and easier to collect the

taxes. The majority of U.S. states are moving in the direction of either negotiated voluntary collection – as was the case in Alabama – or so-called “tattletale” laws like those adopted to get the taxes collected in Colorado. But after decades of watching sales and use tax revenue losses to thriving online sellers, state lawmakers across the country woke up and engaged on the issue. And despite the predictable wails from the “no-new-taxes-never-ever” crowd, it is the steady growth of online commerce that is bringing an air of inevitability to the passage of these collection laws. Lawmakers are beginning to admit that if America is making a sea change in how we shop, then state and local governments much adapt as well in how sales taxes are collected. False claims that either collecting these long-existing taxes (since 1932 in Mississippi) represents new taxes or “taxing the Internet” have also been pretty well exposed. President Obama signed the Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015 in 2016, otherwise known as H.R. 644. H.R.

644 specifically and permanently prohibits any tax on access to the Internet. The bill removed some previously existing tax levies on Internet access. The percentage of total tax revenue in Mississippi comprised of sales tax is nearly 40 percent, so declines in sales tax collections lost when revenue from growing online sales isn’t collected creates even more problems – and at a time when the state needs revenue for public education, transportation and infrastructure, public health care, and corrections. Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Tennessee and Texas legislators have all taken steps to level the playing field for their bricks-and-mortar retailers trying to compete with mega-online retailers. Mississippi lawmakers can and should follow suit. To do less is to subsidize Amazon and some of the most successful online retailers on the planet at the expense of Mississippi bricks-and-mortars retailers and employers.

Obama’s reset a spectacular failure President Barack Obama has finally had it with Russia. It only took eight years of cold reality -- topped off by the Russian interference in the November election -to make the outgoing president almost cleareyed about the Kremlin. Not that Obama is ready to admit error. Asked by George Stephanopoulos on Sunday if he underestimated Vladimir Putin, Obama said no, he had only missed how cyberhacking could be used to meddle in our electoral system -- in other words, it was a technical mistake, rather than a fundamental misassessment of a foreign adversary. Perhaps the president can be forgiven for not being more forthright, since it would require acknowledging how spectacularly his reset failed. President Obama began his term with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton presenting her Russian counterpart with a (mistranslated) reset button, and ended it watching the Kremlin target Hillary Clinton’s party and campaign team with no evident respect for U.S. sovereignty or fear of U.S. retaliation. The reset was premised on

willful naivete about Russia. It required forgiving and forgetting the Russian Rich i n v a s i o n Lowry of Georgia that had ocNational curred only Review in August of 2008, on the cusp of Obama’s election. It meant looking away from the poisoning of the former FSB agent Alexander Litvinenko in London, a crime that British authorities concluded in 2007 was an assassination carried out by Russian intelligence. It demanded believing that temporary Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, a supposed modernizer, was something other than a place holder for the real power in the Kremlin, Vladimir Putin. Obama thought that misunderstandings and ill will had undermined the U.S.Russian relationship under George W. Bush (who himself had an early soft spot for Putin), and his more deft, reassuring touch would make new memories. In 2010, the White House was

patting itself on the back for forging “win-win outcomes” with Russia. The touching emphasis on mutual interests and respect failed to understand Vladimir Putin’s motives. How he must have snickered when at a summit in 2012, Obama was caught on a hot mic telling Medvedev that he should relay to Putin to give him “space” because after the election he’d “have more flexibility.” The Russian leader cared only about power and honor (and riches for himself and his cronies), and was immune to Obama’s blandishments. Putin stole the 2011 Russian parliamentary elections anyway. He invaded Ukraine and annexed Crimea in 2014 anyway. He intervened in Syria in 2015 and bombed Aleppo to rubble anyway. The administration always made the minimal response, and actually welcomed Russia’s entry into Syria as part of a face-saving way out of Obama’s “red line” fiasco. It is only now, after the Russian meddling in the November election, that all the apologists for Obama’s reset have converted en masse to stalwart Russia hawks.

They almost sound ready to reconstitute the Cold Warera Committee for the Free World -- after years of accommodation of Moscow. Oh, how they mocked Mitt Romney when he said in 2012 that Russia was our foremost geopolitical rival. And resisted calls to arm Ukraine against the Russian invasion. And welcomed the faux chemical-weapons deal Russia forged in Syria, and took seriously, time and again, the utterly bootless attempts to cut cease-fire deals with Russia in Syria. Perhaps Russia’s hacking over the past year would have turned liberals against Moscow no matter what, but one gets the sense that, in their minds, Russia’s chief offense was taking the wrong side in the election. Now, with Obama’s reset in tatters, Donald Trump wants to pursue his own version. Vladimir Putin has a dark view of the United States, so it must be a mystery to him why every new American president is so convinced that he can get along with the Russian, despite all the evidence to the contrary. Trump should learn from Obama’s failure, and not replicate it.

Speaker pushes restrictions on Mississippi campaign spending BY JEFF AMY Associated Press

JACKSON — Speaker Philip Gunn took a campaign finance bill by the hand and escorted it through the Mississippi House Wednesday, a year after his top lieutenants mugged a similar measure. Representatives voted 102-13 to pass House Bill 479 and send it to the Senate for more work. It would impose restrictions on the nowlargely unregulated world of Mississippi campaign spending for all elected officials, aiming to block candidates from using campaign contributions to subsidize their lifestyle or build a retirement nest egg. The move comes after 2016 reports by The Associated Press and The Clarion-Ledger showed officials were spending money on clothes, cars and boots, with some withdrawing large sums at retirement for personal use. Last year House members defeated a bill proposing restrictions late in the session on an unrecorded voice vote. Gunn wrote the bill and assigned it to the Rules Committee. He made an unusual appearance in a committee meeting Wednesday, hours after the bill was introduced, to offer amendments. “This is an item I have taken a personal interest in,” Gunn, RClinton, told reporters after the committee advanced the bill. “The issue has been raised as to the integrity of legislators. I want us not

be difficult to start midyear. The House agreed to an amendment that allows lawmakers to keep donating campaign money to pay funeral expenses for constituents. The Ethics Commission would be assigned to enforce the act and could fine violators $1,000, plus an amount equal to misspent campaign money. The assessment above the fine would be deposited in the state pension system. The measure would also require political committees to file organization papers within 48 hours, not 10 days, and allow fines of up to $5,000 for violations. Opponents said they worry about the power being given to the Ethics Commission. “This frightens me,” said Rep. Omeria Scott, D-Laurel. Candidates closing campaign committees would be required to give the money to another political committee or candidate, to a nonprofit group or the state — or to return it to donors. An AP review found that of 99 elected officials who had left office in previous years, as many as 25 may have pocketed more than $1,000 when they closed campaign accounts. At least five cashed out more than $50,000, including former Lt. Gov. Amy Tuck, former Secretary of State Eric Clark and former Insurance Commissioner George Dale. Mississippi is one of five states where withdrawals are legal so long as state and federal income taxes are paid.

to do anything that appears to lack being truthful, being honest and lacking integrity.” Republican Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves welcomed the action, noting the Senate passed a bill last year. “I’m hopeful that today’s action improves the likelihood that a legislative compromise can be reached during this session,” Reeves said in a statement. Gunn’s proposal would ban spending, and require officials to itemize credit card bills instead of paying a lump sum. Officials could still use campaign money to cover campaign and official expenses, including travel to party conventions and association meetings, car rental and accommodations for lawmakers in Jackson. Gunn said the bill aims to allow lawmakers to pay expenses connected with legislative sessions that are in excess of what is covered by the $140-per-day expense payment they collect. “It allows them to use the money in every capacity that they are called upon to serve as a legislator,” Gunn said. Lawmakers would be allowed to pay a mortgage on a house or condominium in the Jackson area with campaign money. The bill would take effect Jan. 1, 2018. Lawmakers rejected an amendment to make it effective immediately. Gunn said that fits with the calendar year reporting requirements of the campaign finance system, saying it could

Trump concedes Russia’s role in hacking BY JULIE PACE AP White House Correspondent

NEW YORK — In a combative and freewheeling news conference, President-elect Donald Trump said for the first time Wednesday that he accepts Russia was behind the election year hacking of Democrats that roiled the White House race. Looking ahead, he urged Congress to move quickly to replace President Barack Obama’s signature health care law and insisted anew that Mexico will pay the cost of a border wall. The hour-long spectacle in the marbled lobby of Trump’s Manhattan skyscraper was his first news conference since winning the election in early November, and the famously unconventional politician demonstrated he had not been changed by the weight of his victory. He defiantly denied reports that Russia had collected compromising personal and financial information about him, lambasting the media for peddling “fake news” and shouting down a journalist from CNN, which reported on the matter. His family and advisers clapped and cheered him on throughout. Trump’s transition has been shadowed by U.S. intelligence assessments that Russia not only meddled in the election, but did so to help him defeat Democrat Hill-

Trump pick for top diplomat takes tough line on Moscow Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Barraged by questions about Russia, Donald Trump’s pick for secretary of state promised a far more muscular approach toward the Kremlin on Wednesday, abandoning much of the president-elect’s emphasis on improving ties between the Cold War foes. Instead, Rex Tillerson suggested the outgoing Obama administration responded too softly to

Moscow’s takeover of Ukrainian territory. The surprising shift in tone by Tillerson reflected the difficulty Trump will have in persuading Democrats and Republicans to broach a broad rapprochement with President Vladimir Putin’s government. Tillerson said he would keep U.S. sanctions in place and consider new penalties related to Russian meddling in the presidential election.

to announce that the presidentelect was relinquishing control of the Trump Organization to his adult sons and an executive, as well as putting his business assets in a trust. While new international business deals will be banned, the company will be allowed to start new projects in the U.S. The move appears to contradict a previous pledge by the presidentelect. In a tweet last month, Trump said that “no new deals” would be done while he was in office. With dramatic flair, Trump aides piled stacks of manila folders on a table next to the lectern - in front of 10 American flags - before the news conference began. Trump said the folders contained documents he had signed formalizing the new business arrangements, though journalists were not able to view and independently verify the materials. Some 250 journalists crammed into the Trump Tower lobby for the news conference, which was not only Trump’s first since the election, but his first since July. Journalists shouted for his attention. At times, he skipped past questions he appeared to not want to answer, including an inquiry about whether he would keep in place sanctions Obama slapped on Russia in retaliation for the election-related hacking.

ary Clinton. After spending weeks challenging that idea, Trump finally accepted at least part of the intelligence conclusions. “As far as hacking, I think it was Russia,” Trump said, quickly adding that “other countries and other people” also hack U.S. interests. Still, he kept needling the intelligence agencies, saying it would be a “tremendous blot” on their record if officials were leaking information from his classified briefings. One U.S. official told The Associated Press Tuesday night that intelligence people had informed Trump last week about an unsubstantiated report that Russia had compromising personal and financial information about him. Some media outlets reported on the document, which contains unproven information alleging close coordination between Trump’s inner circle and Russians, as well as unverified claims about unusual sexual activities by Trump. The AP has not authenticated any of the claims. Wednesday’s news conference was initially billed as a chance for Trump to answer questions about his plans for distancing himself from his sprawling, family-owned real estate and licensing business.

Relatives of slain churchgoers confront gunman for last time BY JEFFREY COLLINS Associated Press

CHARLESTON, S.C. — One by one, family members of nine slain black parishioners confronted Dylann Roof for the last time Wednesday, shouting at him, offering forgiveness and even offering to visit him in prison as he awaits execution for the slaughter. The 22-year-old avowed white supremacist refused to meet their gaze and simply stared ahead, his head tilted down slightly as it had been for much of his trial. “Dylann,” Janet Scott said quietly as she started speaking. “Dylann! DYLANN!” she said, her voice rising. Toward the end of her remarks, she said, “I wish you would look at me, boy.” Scott, an aunt of 26-year-old Tywanza Sanders, the youngest victim killed in the massacre, demanded that Roof look at her as she talked about her nephew’s “great big heart,” which could not be donated because of the police investigation. The final statements came a day after jurors sentenced an unrepen-

tant Roof to death. The gunman had one final opportunity to ask for mercy but instead told jurors he still “felt like I had to do it.” On Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Richard Gergel formally confirmed the sentence, saying “This hate, this viciousness, this moral depravity will not go unanswered.” Some family members already testified at Roof’s trial. The formal sentencing hearing gave 35 of them a chance to speak directly to him, without prosecutors or the judge interrupting or asking questions. Roof also had an opportunity to speak but declined to say anything. He is the first person ordered executed for a federal hate crime. Some of the relatives looked directly at Roof. Sheila Capers, the sister-in-law of Cynthia Hurd, said she prayed for Roof’s soul to be saved. “If at any point before you are sentenced and you’re in prison and you want me to come and pray with you, I will do that,” Capers said.


party affiliation and would hold its first party primary elections this year if there are enough candidates. All of those on the list thus far are running as Republicans. Rienzi also has a few candidates who have submitted papers. Walter Williams is seeking reelection for a third term as mayor, and incumbent aldermen David Massey and Dale Leonard are running again. A former alder-

woman, Melissa Morgan, is also seeking a seat on the board. The nonpartisan elections in Rienzi, Kossuth and Glen require candidates to gather the signatures of 15 qualified electors. To run as an independent in Farmington, 50 valid signatures are required. The next term of office for municipal officers will begin July 3. Corinth’s next election for mayor, aldermen and police chief will be in 2018.

Pound takes a pounding The British pound is weaker than it’s been in decades, and the currency’s troubles may not be behind it yet.

Turbulent quarter?

The federal purse

Wall Street predicts that Delta Air Lines’ fourth-quarter earnings declined from a year ago. The Atlanta-based airline has struggled with the impact of rising salaries and other costs, combined with lower airfares. Beyond earnings, investors will be listening today for an update on the airline’s plans to raise airfares this year.

The Treasury Department issues a report today on how much money Uncle Sam took in and paid out last month. The November report showed that the federal government's receipts and outlays translated into a deficit of $136.7 billion for the month. Economists predict December ended with a smaller shortfall, $24.6 billion. In December 2015, the government ended the month with a shortfall of $14.4 billion.

Coming Up In The Daily Corinthian Staff Writer/Photographer Zack Steen interviewed the Pratt family to share the story of Addie Paige, a teen-age cancer survivor. See the story coming in the Crossroads Magazine Healthy Living Edition on Sunday, Jan. 29.

Girl who shies away from gym can enjoy a good, long walk D E A R ABBY: My mom wants me to exercise more. Currently, I just walk a lot (in my house Abigail and around block). Van Buren the I know exercise is a Dear Abby good idea, but I’m really self-conscious about it. I never feel like I’m doing it right (because I know you can easily pull a muscle), and I feel like everyone else in the gym is judging me. Now that I’m 17, Mom expects me to be more mature about this. I don’t even feel comfortable swimming in public places anymore. I feel stressed about it, but Mom just thinks I’m being picky. Being in a gym makes me feel unhappy and judged. I wish there was a better way to exercise, but I don’t know what. How can I get my mom to understand how hard this is for me? -- WONDERING IN WICHITA DEAR WONDERING: Going to a gym can be fun if you do it with a buddy. Most of the people there are more concerned with what THEY are doing than what anyone else is. That said, going to the gym isn’t for everyone.

There are many forms of exercise. Tell your mother you would prefer to exercise on your own rather than go to a gym. Then put on your walking shoes, leave the house and walk for 20 to 30 minutes a day. It’s good for you. Listen to music when you’re doing it and it will make the time go quickly. And on days when you don’t want to go outside, put on some music and dance. It’s good for the circulation, and it’s also good for the soul. DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been married for 44 years. We eloped in high school and still feel like newlyweds. We built a successful business, ran it for 40 years and recently had an opportunity to sell it. The problem is my mother. We bought a second home in California, but kept our first home. Every time I call to ask how she and Dad are doing, she responds with, “You don’t care how we are. If you did, you would be here.” I love our new life. Our kids are grown, and we are enjoying ourselves to the fullest. We are both in excellent health, and still young at heart. How can we tell her that we have a life we love without her being so resentful? -- LOVING LIFE IN CALIFORNIA

DEAR LOVING: You can’t, because your mother feels you should be at her beck and call. She has had you close since you were a child, and now she may be feeling deserted. At this point, I don’t advise telling your mother that you “have a life you love” without her. Instead, I suggest that you phrase your greeting to her more carefully. Rather than ask how she and your dad are doing, say that you are “calling to check in.” Say that you were thinking about her. And if she starts in with “you don’t care,” tell her that you DO care or you wouldn’t be on the phone with her, but if she keeps giving you a guilt trip, she’ll be hearing from you less. DEAR ABBY: If you go to a party and bring something (chips, soda, etc.), what is the rule of etiquette about taking it home when you leave? -PRACTICAL IN IDAHO DEAR PRACTICAL: When someone brings food to a party, it could be considered a host/ hostess gift. Before taking any of it home, first ask your host or hostess if it would be all right. While some people wouldn’t mind, others may, so you shouldn’t assume that because you brought something that the leftovers are yours.

Horoscopes ARIES (March 21-April 19). You feel stalled in some respects, but it’s not your fault; it’s the destination. The goal is off. Change what you want from the situation, and you’ll find that the road is totally clear. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The people who you’d categorize as “fun” are the same ones who tend to find something new in a familiar situation. It’s one of the reasons that you’ll be looking for the novelty in something you do nearly every day. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If no one can give you self-confidence, then no one can take it away, either. There are, however, those who foster an atmosphere where such a thing can grow. They should be your first choice for company. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Everything doesn’t have to be big and spectacular to be pleasing to you. Simple pleasures will be even more satisfying now, as you effortlessly settle into them. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Making small talk is a ubiquitous feature of your professional

standing and your busy social life, though not one that you always feel prepared for. Pick your topics before you leave the house, and you’ll win at conversation. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’re interesting in so many ways. Don’t be in a rush to reveal them all up front. There’s an art to impressing people and getting them intrigued -- rather than impressing with the effect of making people jealous and resentful. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Absurdity is a tone that intellectuals, artists and humorists like you can pull off beautifully. By the way, if you don’t think of yourself in these terms, it’s about time you started to, because it’s definitely part of who you are. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You can go through the day’s challenges hoping not to crash, but you’ll only be shortchanging yourself. Instead, go into them anticipating the opportunity to take a running leap into the sky and soar.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Ask an OK question; have an OK time. Ask a better question; have a better time. Ask the question; hold on for a conversational loop-the-loop that no one was expecting and none will soon forget. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). So many instances prove that in life, it doesn’t matter how intelligent you are: What matters most is how prepared you are. That big brain of yours notwithstanding, get ready today and you’ll succeed tomorrow. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). When you love and are loved, it makes everything a little easier. You feel like you can choose what to get emotionally invested in. The perspective you come from is one of involved detachment. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You don’t always turn up your power to high voltage, because it’s not the level that’s needed much of the time, and you don’t want to exhibit bad taste. However, you can afford to amp it up somewhat today.

After my final “Pick With Kent,” where I didn’t fare so well picking the New Year’s Day Six college bowl games a few weeks ago, I did not intend to do any further picking this season. But this week’s slate of NFL playoff games — referred to as semifinal weekend — was just tempting. Kent too So here I am Mohundro once more, doSports Editor ing my best to pick the winners. I think I’ll pay a little more attention to the oddsmakers this time because it seems they have been getting it right much more than I have. Let’s take a look at what I believe will happen. I’m even gonna take it a step further this time and predict the final score of each game.

Seattle @ Atlanta In Saturday’s opening game, the high-flying Falcons will host the dangerous Seahawks in what I believe could be the second-best game of the weekend. The “dirty birds” are an early five-point favorite, and I tend to lean that way myself. With this contest being played in the Georgia Dome — where Atlanta has been nearly impossible to stop this season — it gives the Falcons a huge edge that might not be there if this tilt were being played on the West coast. Going by stats alone, most anyone would pick Atlanta to win this game. The Falcons rank first in the NFL this season in scoring offense (33.8), fifth in rushing yards (120.5), third in passing yards (295.3) and second in total yards per game (415.8). Matt Ryan has had an MVPcaliber season, passing for just short of 5,000 yards with 38 touchdowns against just seven interceptions. His 117.1 QB rat-

ing is among the tops in the league. Julio Jones has enjoyed another Pro Bowl-type season with 83 receptions for 1,409 yards and six touchdowns. If the Falcons have an achilles heal, it’s defense. They’ve had to outscore opponents several times but have had good success doing so. They give up 25.4 points per game, which ranks 25th in the NFL. If Seattle QB Russell Wilson can keep his team on the field and sustain drives then the Seahawks have a good chance to win. Kent’s Pick: Atlanta 35, Seattle 28

the NFL in total yards allowed per game (301.3). They’re also 11th in points allowed per game (20.5). The problem for Houston is that New England isn’t far behind them in each defensive category, but they rank far ahead of the Texans in every offensive category you can imagine. The visitors only chance of keeping this game from getting away early is to create some stops and possibly a turnover or two because their offense only averages 17.4 points per game, which ranks 28th in the NFL. Kent’s Pick: New England 38, Houston 21

Houston @ New England

Pittsburgh @ Kansas City

The Saturday nightcap will likely be a yawner as the Patriots open as a 15-point home favorite. And they simply do not lose playoff games at Gillette Stadium. If the Texans have one advantage in this contest, it’s their defense, which is No. 1 in

Rebels ranked No. 8 in preseason poll Ole Miss Sports Information

OXFORD — Coming off a 43win season in 2016 and hauling in the nation’s No. 1 recruiting class, expectations are high for the Ole Miss baseball team this season. Perfect Game ranked the Rebels No. 8 in its national preseason poll, released Wednesday morning. Ole Miss is one of five SEC schools ranked in Perfect Game’s Top 25. The No. 8 ranking is the Rebels’ highest

preseason position since 2009 when Baseball America ranked Ole Miss sixth heading into the season. Despite six players getting selected in the 2016 MLB Draft, the Rebels return five starters in their everyday lineup led by senior and Preseason All-American Colby Bortles. Second baseman Tate Blackman also returns for his junior season following a 2016 campaign in which he earned first team All-SEC honors. The two

Pro Picks not scared of that Foxborough spread The Associated Press

When the point spreads came out for the divisional playoff round, the line getting the most attention was for the game at Foxborough, the one projected blowout. While all four teams coming off byes are favored, the Patriots (14-2) opened as a 13½-point choice against the Texans (10-7). The money

started flowing in, and the line moved up to 15½. The players and coaches have no interest in such things, of course, reasoning that betting lines have no impact on what happens on the field Saturday night. They are right. Talent makes the difference, and there rarely has been such a mismatch in skill as in this one.

Not that the Texans, fresh off a rout of the injury-wrecked Raiders, will simply forfeit. They recognize the challenge and sound eager to face it. “You have to make sure that, No. 1, that you do your job,” Texans coach Bill O’Brien said. “That your players understand what their role in the game is and how they’re supposed to perform on every single play.

“They’re going to make their share of plays. I think one of the big things for us is we have to play good, sound, fundamental football. They’re the type of team that if you make too many mistakes, they’re going to bury you.” Let the romping begin. New England has won its Please see PRO | 9

the 2017 season. Back on the mound, David Parkinson had a breakout debut season as a Rebel last year; the southpaw posted a 2.78 ERA as the No. 2 pitcher in the weekend rotation. Junior Will Stokes tied a school record with 30 appearances a season ago, pitching 43.0 innings and adding seven saves to his résumé. Ole Miss also returns three 2016 Freshman All-American pitchers in Brady Feigl, James McArthur and Andy Pagnozzi. Joining the veterans will be 17 newcomers who make up the No. 1 nationally-ranked recruiting class, the first No. 1 recruiting class in Ole Miss Sports history.

stepped it up since early in the season and has cut his turnovers in half. The Kansas City offense hasn’t dominated but their defense has, allowing just 19.4 points per game, which ranks seventh in the league. The Steelers have the advantage of more recent playoff success and appearances, but the Chiefs are playing like a team on a mission and are loaded with confidence after displacing Denver as NFC West champs and holding off the Oakland Raiders for the division title. This is Sunday’s early afternoon contest and Kansas City is a narrow 1.5-point favorite right now. This one will likely come down to who has the ball last. Kent’s Pick: Kansas City 28, Pittsburgh 27

Green Bay @ Dallas By nature, I’m a New Orleans Saints fan, but I’m gonna be a Cowboys fan for the first time in my life late Sunday afternoon. Nothing personal against the Packers — goodness knows I was always a huge Brett Favre fan — but I’m on the Dakattack bandwagon until the wheels fall off. If that ever happens. This is what I believe will be the best game of the weekend. Dallas is an early 4.5-point favorite and have the best offensive line and second-best rushing game in the NFL.

But the way Green Bay has been playing since beginning the season, 4-6 lends itself to the idea that you shouldn’t pick against them. Aaron Rodgers has been here before. Dak Prescott has not. But don’t tell him he’s not a seasoned veteran now. Go ahead: tell him. He’ll just laugh and shrug off the comment and continue to play like a fourthyear player. He’s not your normal rookie QB. These are two of the best offenses in the NFL with the Packers fourth in points per game (27) and the Cowboys are right behind them (26.3). The difference will come on defense where Dallas has the No. 1 rushing defense in the league but rank way down at No. 26 in passing yards allowed (260). That’s Green Bay’s strength. The ‘Boys will need to limit the ‘Pack on offense with some three and outs and maybe a turnover. Then they’ll need to punch it in the end zone when they have the ball because field goals won’t beat Green Bay this Sunday. Kent’s Pick: Dallas 27, Green Bay 24 I hope I’ve picked better this time around, and good luck to all the teams in the NFL playoffs this weekend. I know we have fans of each team in our coverage area, and I hope your team does well. But remember: only four can win.

past four meetings with Houston at Gillette Stadium by a combined 150-49. It’s tempting to pick that score, but we’ll go with the average of those results. Best Bet: Patriots, 38-12

Pittsburgh (plus 2) at Kansas City, Sunday That boot being worn by Ben Roethlisberger after Pittsburgh’s win against Miami is very worrisome. But Roethlisberger tends to always show up in the playoffs and perform superbly much of the time. The Steelers eased past the Chiefs on Oct. 2, but that was in Pittsburgh. Kansas City is better now than it was back then, although so are the Steelers. If KC can get pressure on Big Ben and somewhat control Antonio Brown, the league’s most dangerous receiver (and non-quarterback), and RB Le’Veon Bell, it can use its relatively conservative offense to its advantage. But will Andy Reid turn the reins loose a bit when the Chiefs have the ball? A matchup we can’t wait

Seattle (plus 4½) at Atlanta, Saturday Experience, coaching and swagger — they all are on the side of the visitors. Seattle is as accomplished as any NFC playoff team, and many of the key contributors to its recent success remain on the scene: Russell Wilson, Bobby Wagner, Richard Sherman and Doug Baldwin. Now that Thomas Rawls seems healthy, there’s a running game to complement Wilson, Baldwin and tight end Jimmy Graham. But this is one of those prove-it games for Atlanta’s All-Pros, quarterback Matt Ryan and wideout Julio Jones. Which opponent to better prove that your offense, and an improving defense, are capable of a long postseason run than against the big kid on the

NFC block? Falcons coach Dan Quinn gets the better of his mentor, Seattle’s Pete Carroll, in a squeaker. Falcons, 27-26

Green Bay (plus 4) at Dallas, Sunday Who isn’t in awe of Aaron Rodgers, the league’s best quarterback over the past two months? Hey, the guy even connects regularly on desperation passes. The big issue here is the health of Jordy Nelson, who got a helmet to the ribs from the Giants in the wild-card game and was sidelined. It’s not likely he will be on the field Sunday, and even if he is, Nelson probably will be limited. Still, the Packers will play loose and A-Rod will be dynamic. They figure to do their share of scoring against a Dallas defense that ranked 26th against the pass. Then again, sensational rookies Zeke Elliott and Dak Prescott, operating behind the best line in the NFL and complemented by Jason Witten and Dez Bryant, also should supply points. In a shootout ... Packers, 37-33

Matt Ryan and the Falcons get another shot at the Seahwaks this weekend.

LETâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S TRY THIS AGAIN

After a not-so-wild start to the playoffs, four rematches show promise

OUTSIDE THE HUDDLE The Jacksonville Jaguars are making big changes to their football operation, but that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean there wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be familiar faces. On the same day the Jaguars announced that Doug Marrone would shed the interim title and take over as head coach heading into next season, they also revealed that Tom Coughlin was coming on board as vice president of football operations. Coughlin, who coached the Giants to two Super Bowl titles, served as head coach in Jacksonville for eight seasons (1995-2002) and led the Jags to the playoffs four times. General manager Dave Caldwell will report to Coughlin, but it was unclear who would have ďŹ nal say in personnel matters. ... After just one season on the job, Cleveland Browns coach Hue Jackson has changed defensive coordinators. Ray Horton, whose unit ranked 30th in points allowed and 31st in

total defense, is out, and former Rams defensive coordinator Gregg Williams is in. Los Angeles ranked ninth in total defense but 23rd in scoring defense this past season. ... The NFL has initiated a review of the concussion protocol after Miami quarterback Matt Moore took a vicious blow from Pittsburgh linebacker Bud Dupree last week. Just after releasing a pass while rolling to his right, Moore was hit in the jaw by Dupreeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s helmet, and the back of his head hit the turf as well. Despite staying down for several minutes and needing to be helped off, Moore missed only one play. He ended up completing 29-of-36 passes for 289 yards and a touchdown but also fumbled twice and threw an interception. The league said it will review the video, relevant documents and interview the involved parties to determine whether the protocol was properly followed.

Time to grow up? After Odell Beckham Jr. and other New York Giants receivers were photographed partying in Miami six days before their playoff game in Green Bay, critics were ready to pounce if things didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go the Giantsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; way. Sure enough, Beckham dropped three passes in the loss to the Packers, and even Beckham admitted the situation caused unwanted distractions after the media found out about the trip. A bigger concern for the Giants might be how Beckham deals with things that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go his way. He punched a hole in a Lambeau Field wall after the loss, and tirades after losses are not uncommon.

THE LAST TIME With all four games this weekend being rematches of regular-season meetings, we take a look back at what happened the ďŹ rst time these teams met this season: Week 6 at Seattle Seahawks 26, Falcons 24 What happened: Seattle jumped to a 17â&#x20AC;&#x201C;3 halftime lead, gave up three third-quarter touchdowns to fall behind, then rallied to take the lead thanks to a rare Matt Ryan interception. Falcons fans wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget the defensive pass interference call that never came that may have given Atlanta a shot at a winning ďŹ eld goal. What it means now: Despite the loss, it should give the Falcons conďŹ dence. They gave the Seahawks all they could handle in a tough environment, and the difference in the game was losing the turnover battle, 2â&#x20AC;&#x201C;0. It was the only game all season Atlanta turned it over more than once. Week 3 at New England Patriots 27, Texans 0 What happened: Down to rookie third-string quarterback Jacoby Brissett, the Patriots rushed for 185 yards and forced three turnovers. Brissett threw for just 103 yards, but he rushed for 48 and a touchdown, was sacked only once and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t turn the ball over. What it means now: Not much as Tom Brady will obviously be playing for the Pats. Jadeveon Clowney has become a playmaker for Houston, but will it be enough to stop Brady? Unlikely. Week 4 at Pittsburgh Steelers 43, Chiefs 14 What happened: Ben Roethlisberger threw ďŹ ve touchdown passes in the only game all season Kansas City allowed more than 28 points. The Chiefs gave the ball away twice early, and Pittsburgh led 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;0 after one quarter on three touchdown drives of 40 yards or fewer. What it means now: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unlikely the game will get away from the Chiefs like that at home, but if they turn the ball over again, the Steelers are certainly capable of taking advantage. Week 6 at Green Bay Cowboys 30, Packers 16 What happened: Dak Prescott threw three touchdown passes and Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 157 yards in a relatively easy Dallas win. The Packers hurt their cause with four turnovers, including three fumbles. What it means now: The Cowboys are at home this time, but the bigger differences are on the Green Bay side. The Packers have gone ďŹ ve games without a turnover while the defense has 15 takeaways, and Aaron Rodgers looks like his old self compared to the ďŹ rst half of the season.

Edwards makes private decision to leave NASCAR The Associated Press

HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Carl Edwards listed reason after reason for stepping away from fulltime NASCAR competition this season, less than two months removed from nearly winning his first Cup title. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s content with his career accomplishments. He wants to spend more time on his outside interests. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s healthy and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want that to change. Edwards, one of NASCARâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top stars and driver for a top organization, really seemed at peace with a personal decision he made right before Christmas. But for a brief moment, he had to turn his back to the audience and compose himself.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah, I just want to be a good person, you know?â&#x20AC;? he said, his bottom lip quivering. Edwards quickly recovered and returned to script. He has so many outside interests â&#x20AC;&#x201D; aviation, agriculture, a possible career in politics â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that he literally has no idea what will come next. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no life raft I am jumping on to, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just jumping,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a pure, simple, personal decision.â&#x20AC;? Edwards had one year remaining on his contract with Joe Gibbs Racing, and he came 10 laps away from winning his first Cup title two months ago. He informed Joe Gibbs in late December he did not want to race this season, and used about 40 minutes Wednesday at

team headquarters to explain his reasoning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was such a surprise,â&#x20AC;? Gibbs said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When he sat down in front of me and shared what he was thinking, I was totally surprised. I said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This is a huge decision, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s take some time with this.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Four days later, Edwards and Gibbs spoke on the telephone and the team owner knew the decision was made. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I could tell he was totally committed,â&#x20AC;? Gibbs said. Roughly 10 minutes after Edwards finished, Gibbs began a second news conference in which Mexican Daniel Suarez was introduced as the replacement for Edwardsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; No. 19 Toyota. Suarez is

the reigning Xfinity Series champion and the first foreign-born winner of a national series crown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since I moved to NASCAR when I was 16 years old, this has been something that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been dreaming about,â&#x20AC;? Suarez said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To be in this position is just something amazing.â&#x20AC;? Suarez will now be the fourth driver for the most dominant team in NASCAR. Edwards also had a diďŹ&#x192;cult path. He was a Midwest racer who filled in the financial shortfalls by substitute teaching. He handed out business cards at race tracks, placed ads in trade magazines, anything to get his big break. It paid oďŹ&#x20AC; with a job driving for Jack Roush that led to a Truck

Series championship and a rapid rise through NASCARâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ranks. Edwards twice came within moments of winning a Cup title. He lost to Tony Stewart in 2011 on a tie-breaker, then again in November when he was leading the season finale with 10 laps remaining when a debris caution set up a final restart. Edwards had to block Joey Logano on the restart and it triggered a crash that ended his title hopes. Despite that heartbreak, he said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s walking away content with his 28 career victories. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You guys know I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t race just for the trophies,â&#x20AC;? Edwards said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m rewarded by the challenges. I feel accomplished. I know sitting in that car, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the best I can be.â&#x20AC;?

Signs of an abusive streak are noticeable WIZARD OF ID





Dear Annie: I have a friend I’ve known for at least 15 years. A month ago, I invited her and her husband for dinner. When both of my kids told me they didn’t want her over, I couldn’t believe it. I asked why. I told them that she’s always been good to them and she’d love to see them, especially my son, who has been away at college. My son told me she isn’t really my friend, that she only pretends she is because she thinks I am an abusive parent and she feels sorry for my kids. Apparently, she has felt this way for years, ever since my daughter was having a birthday party and I wouldn’t let her have cake because she wouldn’t eat her dinner. He also relayed her thought that I am a horrible parent because I won’t play games with my kids. I have a really bad fear of playing games with people, which is no different from being scared of snakes or being claustrophobic. I asked my daughter whether this is the reason she doesn’t want this woman over, and she said yes. She said the only reason she did not tell me about this sooner was that she didn’t want to hurt my feelings. I asked myself and my kids, “Am I really abusive?” Both of my kids told me

Dear Annie that I am a little stricter than the average parent and have a tendency to scream a lot, but not more than most parents when they’re angry about what the kids did or did not do. I’m still going to have dinner with this woman. After dinner, the children will probably take off and go to their rooms, as they truly don’t want anything to do with her anymore. I thought I would confront her after dinner and give her a chance to explain why she has tried to turn my children against me. I really did think she was my friend for so many years. Do you think this is the right course of action? — Hurt and Confused in Kansas Dear Hurt: Yes, talk to your friend — but think of it as a conversation rather than a confrontation; otherwise, you’re setting yourself up for a hostile interaction. Give her a chance to explain herself. There’s a lot to be said for hearing it from the source. You might want to go for a walk or out for coffee, to be in a neutral space and away from the kids.

And I would suggest looking inward. Is it possible you do raise your voice too loudly and too often? I know we all lose our cool from time to time, but there are better ways to get one’s point across than yelling. Dear Annie: In response to “Grieving for Snoopy,” you printed “The Rainbow Bridge,” a poem by Steve and Diane Bodofsky. I know that the poem was written with good intentions, but it never did a thing for me. The best advice to give a grieving pet owner, in my opinion, is to suggest that when she’s ready, she should go find that special dog or cat waiting at a local animal shelter. It won’t be “the same,” but it will be an individual with a unique, lovable nature. I still miss my old dog from way back when, but I no longer grieve. Five years ago, we reluctantly took care of a kitten. It was “just for a while” because we didn’t want a cat. Now he’s the heart of our family, the mellowest of fellows. As Mark Twain said, a house is not a home without a cat. Or a dog. — Kay from New Paltz, N.Y. Send your questions for Annie Lane to
