Curtis seeks damages in ricin case BY JEBB JOHNSTON jjohnston@dailycorinthian.com

The Corinth man framed for sending ricin-laced letters to the president, a congressman and a Mississippi judge recently filed a new lawsuit seeking damages for the ordeal. The new suit filed in U.S. District Court by Paul Kevin Curtis seeks damages from the U.S. Government, including the FBI, Department of Justice, and Homeland Security, for violation of civil rights.

While this suit generated new headlines in the provocative story of bad blood between two men, another suit filed in Alcorn County Circuit Court remains open. In 2013, he sued James Everett Dutschke, the Tupelo man who was eventually indicted for the crimes, seeking damages for defamation of character, intentional infliction of emotional distress and intentional interference with a business relationship. That case has seen no filings

since 2014, according to court records. The new lawsuit says the government “by and through the full force of its law enforcement agencies, destroyed the life of Kevin Curtis.” As did the previous suit, it details the events he went through during the arrest outside his Corinth home on April 17, 2013, and in the following days until his release. “In the blink of an eye he was literally swarmed by countless

men in SWAT gear with automatic weapons drawn,” the suit states. “The swarm yelled at him, barked orders and cursed him as they cuffed and shackled him. Kevin was in a state of shock, as was Moo Cow, who ran away in the melee. Kevin asked multiple times for someone to help with his dog but his requests were unheeded. The army of men began interrogating Kevin on the spot.” Upon his eventual release, “Kevin Curtis was released to a

different world from the one he was taken from a week before,” the suit argues. “He was suddenly cast into the national and global media as a terrorist. His home was destroyed, his possessions were ransacked and taken. He was placed on the ‘no fly’ list and was subjected to humiliating delays and searches at the airport.” The letters were sent to President Barack Obama, Sen. Roger Wicker and Lee County Justice Court Judge Sadie Holland.

Five deserving local girls will be given the “Cinderella” treatment thanks to the generosity of Junior Auxiliary of Corinth. The non-profit service organization is currently accepting letters from little girls in grades 2nd through 4th who wish to attend the 6th Annual Kiwanis Father-Daughter Ball, but in the past haven’t been able to go for one reason or another. “Each year, we are struck by the number of girls we learn were unable to attend the ball,” said Sara Beth Green who is the chair of the project. “So, this year we decided to do something about that. We may not be able to help everyone as much as we would like to, but at least we can make a difference for these five.” In order to qualify, each young lady must pen a letter in 100 words or less to the ladies of J.A. describing the reasons why they feel they and a father figure should go to the ball. The letters titled “Why I deserve a special night out with the father figure in my life” should be sent to J.A. of Corinth. They must be received no later than Friday, Jan. 27, to be considered.

“Whether they haven’t attended in the past due to a lack of funds or because they don’t have a father figure to escort them, we don’t want them to continue to feel left out.” Sara Beth Green Project chair Applicants should note that their escort can be any father figure in their life whether it be a grandfather, uncle, cousin, older brother, family friend or other male role model. The fundraising event is not limited strictly to fathers and their daughters as the name would suggest. “At $40 per pair and $10 for each additional daughter, attending the ball can be expensive, especially when you add in the cost of a gown, pictures and accessories,” said Green. “Whether they haven’t attendPlease see DREAMS | 2A

Artist finds truths via ghostly images BY JEBB JOHNSTON jjohnston@dailycorinthian.com

Nick D’Acquisto likes to capture the perfect nobody. The Ramer resident and college instructor of digital photography erases the human subjects from his photos, leaving behind only their clothing and surroundings. “The important thing is for you to look at it and try to fill in the void,” said D’aCquisto. “I’ve eliminated some of the subject matter by removing the identity, thus giving the viewer more control of the piece.” The series, titled “NoBodies,” is the featured January exhibit at the Corinth Artist Guild Gal-

“I’ve eliminated some of the subject matter by removing the identity, thus giving the viewer more control of the piece.” Nick D’Acquisto College instructor lery, where an opening reception with the artist is set for 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday. An instructor at the University of Tennessee at Martin Selmer Center, he enjoys hear-

ing different interpretations of the unusual images. “That’s the beauty of it is the fact that the image never changes, but for different people, they see completely different things by removing the face,” said D’Acquisto. The works are digital collage, consisting of multiple digital images in order to properly fill the space that would otherwise be occupied by a face, an arm or a leg. The series began in 2013, and he has aimed to refine it over time, focusing on the finer details, like seeing the hint of the inside of a sock.

Kelly to serve double duty Associated Press

Washington, D.C. — U.S. Representative Trent Kelly, R-Miss. recently announced he will serve on two committees during the 115th Congress: the House Armed Services Committee and the House Committee on Agriculture. Subcommittee assignments will be released later this month. Rep. Kelly has served for over 30 years in the Mississippi Army National Guard where he is currently a Colonel. Mobilized in 1990 for Desert Storm, and deploying to Iraq in 2005 and again in 2009-2010 with the 155th Brigade Combat Team, through his experience leading and successfully bringing home troops, Kelly brings firsthand experience of what it means to serve. Prior to his current role with the Joint Force Headquarters for the state of Mississippi, he was the Brigade Commander of the 168th Engineer Brigade leading 1,400 soldiers from the 223rd Engineer Battalion, the 890th Engineer Battalion, and multiple Engineer Specialty Companies from throughout Mississippi. “Providing for the common defense of this nation is the most important duty we have as elected officials and citizens,” Kelly said. “It is important that all branches of our military are successful. I am humbled by this opportunity to work with Chairman Thornberry and my colleagues providing our military with the tools they need, renewing morale among the troops, and working to keep the focus on our most impor-

tant duty - defending this nation.” “The Armed Services Committee has a unique and solemn role in Congress’ first responsibility, which is defending the country,” said Chairman Thornberry. “Trent’s service as a Mississippi Army National Guard Colonel will be an asset to this committee. I am grateful Trent is willing to dedicate his talents to rebuilding and reforming America’s Military.” Kelly will continue his role as a member of the House Committee on Agriculture. Agriculture is a top industry in Mississippi, contributing $7.4 billion to the state economy and employing approximately 260,000 Mississippians. “In order for our nation to be secure, we must be able to feed and defend ourselves,” Kelly said. “Similar to the population of men and women currently serving in the military, a small percentage of people in this nation are farmers. I am proud to continue to serve with Chairman Conaway and colleagues on the committee. I will continue to work to forward policies that encourage rural development and make the agriculture industry successful.” “Trent was a great addition to the Agriculture Committee last Congress, and we benefited from his global perspective having served as a Colonel in the Mississippi Army National Guard. He is a strong advocate for Mississippi agriculture, and I look forward to continuing our important work together.”

Customers to see electric rates rise BY JEFF AMY Associated Press

JACKSON — Some power company customers in Mississippi will see higher bills in February as two private electric utilities pass along rebounding natural gas costs. The Mississippi Public Service Commission voted Thursday to approve higher fuel costs for both Entergy Mississippi and Mississippi Power Co. Residential customers of Entergy who use 1,000

kilowatt hours monthly will see bills rise by $7 to $99.28. The rate increase is expected to raise revenues of the unit of New Orleans-based Entergy by $90 million over what it collected in 2016, Entergy attorney Shelly Mott Bass said. Typical residential bills for Mississippi Power Co. customers will rise $6.45 per month to about $131. The U.S. Energy Information Administration reports the average

residential customer paid $125.70 a month for 1,000 kwh of electricity in the first 10 months of 2016. Mississippi regulators typically look at fuel cost projections at the beginning of each year, making estimates for the upcoming year and adjusting rates to account for missed estimates from the previous year. Utilities get to pass the cost of fuel to customers, but aren’t supposed to make a profit.

Today in History Today is Friday, Jan. 13, the 13th day of 2017. There are 352 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Jan. 13, 1967, the Rolling Stones’ double-A sided single “Let’s Spend the Night Together” and “Ruby Tuesday” was released in the United Kingdom by Decca Records. (It was released the following day in the United States on the London label).

On this date: In 1733, James Oglethorpe and some 120 English colonists arrived at Charleston, South Carolina, while en route to settle in present-day Georgia. In 1794, President George Washington approved a measure adding two stars and two stripes to the American flag, following the admission of Vermont and Kentucky to the Union. (The number of stripes was later reduced to the original 13.) In 1898, Emile Zola’s famous defense of Capt. Alfred Dreyfus, “J’accuse,” was published in Paris. In 1915, a magnitude-7 earthquake centered in Avezzano, Italy, claimed some 30,000 lives. In 1941, a new law went into effect granting Puerto Ricans U.S. birthright citizenship. Novelist and poet James Joyce died in Zurich, Switzerland, less than a month before his 59th birthday. In 1962, comedian Ernie Kovacs died in a car crash in west Los Angeles 10 days before his 43rd birthday. In 1978, former Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey died in Waverly, Minnesota, at age 66. In 1982, an Air Florida 737 crashed into Washington, D.C.’s 14th Street Bridge and fell into the Potomac River while trying to take off during a snowstorm, killing a total of 78 people; four passengers and a flight attendant survived. In 1987, West German police arrested Mohammed Ali Hamadi, a suspect in the 1985 hijacking of a TWA jetliner.(Although convicted and sentenced to life, Hamadi was paroled by Germany in Dec. 2005; he is on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists list.)

Across the Region Booneville School district earns elite honor for AP work BOONEVILLE — The Booneville School District has earned an elite honor for encouraging students to take more rigorous coursework. The district was one of only 433 across the US and Canada to be selected for the College Board’s annual AP District Honor Roll. The distinction recognizes districts for significant increases in the number of students taking Advanced Placement courses while also increasing the number of students scoring well on the AP exams. Booneville Superintendent Dr. Todd English said they’re grateful for the recognition which he said highlights the district’s continued emphasis on pushing students toward higher achievement. “I believe wholeheartedly in raising expectations,” he said. English noted all high school students who earn their diplomas as honor graduates are required to take either AP courses or dual enrollment college courses. The Booneville district received the highest score in the state for the portion of the state’s school accountability model tracking participating in AP and dual enrollment programs. English said it’s all about preparing students to compete for the best jobs in today’s highly competitive global economy. “We want our kids to be be able to compete with kids around the world,” he said. Booneville was among three districts in the state to be recognized on the college board list. The DeSoto County School District and Stone County School District were also included. “The leaders and teachers in DeSoto, Booneville and Stone County school districts are to be commended for expanding student access to AP courses,” said Dr. Carey Wright, state superintendent of education. “AP classes expose students to college-level material and help them understand what is expected to be successful in college.”  

Tishomingo Co. School to issue students iPads TISHOMINGO COUNTY – Students at Tishomingo County Schools will be issued iPads in

2017, according to Superintedent of Education Christy Holly. Holly said students in grades 9-12 at Belmont and Tishomingo County high schools will use the iPads for research, testing and preloaded textbooks. Details of how the program will work, she said, will be announced in the coming months.  

Ripley Power outage effects 600 residents RIPLEY – Approximately 600 Tippah and Union County residents were without power for 10 hours recently due to a break in one of Tippah Electric Power Association’s major distribution poles, according to the Southern-Sentinel. Around 4:30 a.m. on Jan. 6, an 18-wheeler hit the lower hanging cable lines and Tippah Electric’s neutral wire at the intersection of MS 4 and MS 370 (Dumas Road). The pressure from the truck pulling the wires caused the distribution pole to snap. Customers were without power from 10 a.m. to 8:15 p.m. as workers rerouted the lines to new utility poles. The outage affected areas on MS 4 east of the intersection to TEPA’s East Ripley Substation and areas south of the intersection on MS 370. It also affected the Town of Dumas and areas south of County Road 701 into Union County. Twenty-two TEPA workers spent the day clearing and replacing the pole and lines as well as redirecting traffic through the Chevron station parking lot at the intersection.  

Tupelo Shelton campaign fund grows TUPELO – Tupelo Mayor Jason Shelton begins his re-election bid with about $60,000 in cash on hand, though Shelton has loaned nearly a third of that amount to his own campaign. According to The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal, Shelton formally qualified for re-election last week, but his intent to seek a second term has been no secret. He hosted a fundraiser late last year. Campaign finance reports detailing any campaign donations or spending from 2016 are due by the end of this month. Shelton released those reports Wednesday. So far, one candidate, Candice Knowles, has qualified to challenge Shelton in the Demo-

cratic primary. When reached earlier this week for comment, Knowles said she was unavailable to discuss her candidacy. According to his campaign finance reports, Shelton raised almost $40,000 in campaign contributions and loaned his own campaign $20,000 during 2016. Shelton’s donors include former Republican mayor Jack Reed Jr. In the last municipal election cycle, Reed endorsed Shelton’s Republican opponent, Fred Pitts. Both Shelton and Pitts ran to replace Reed, who decided not to run again after serving a single term. Campaign finance returns show Shelton also received a contribution from Morgan and Associates. This political consulting firm is led by Morgan Baldwin, known for his work with Republican candidates like the late congressman Alan Nunnelee and current congressman Trent Kelly. Upon his election, Shelton became the first Democratic candidate elected to the mayor’s office in decades. Throughout the 2013 campaign, Shelton styled himself a fiscally conservative leader. In order to win a second term, Shelton will almost certainly need to retain some crossover support from local Republican voters and leaders. No Republican candidate has yet qualified to challenge Shelton. Primary races for municipal posts will happen May 2 with the general election scheduled for June 6. Candidates can qualify to run until March 3.

Selmer Fire department offers free smoke alarms SELMER, Tenn. — The State Fire Marshal’s Office recently presented the Selmer Fire Department with a supply of smoke alarms to be installed in homes within the community at high risk of fire. The department personnel attended an information session and training course on the new alarms, which were purchased with FEMA grant funds and utilize a lithium battery with a 10-year lifespan also we now have Safe A Wake Alarms for the Hearing Impaired who may have a hard time hearing conventional Smoke Alarms. This statewide, months-long distribution of smoke alarms is

all part of the State Fire Marshal’s effort to both educate and equip Tennesseans to incorporate fire safety into their daily lives. “We want residents to make sure they have functional smoke alarms in their homes, as well as a rehearsed fireescape plan. These are tools proven to save lives – because even one fire death is one too many,” says State Fire Marshal Julie Mix McPeak. The alarms are free, but must be installed by the fire department or a partnering organization that has received the training course. Because supplies are limited, the fire department may need to give first preference to those who are not able to otherwise afford smoke alarms. “We are excited to be able to partner with the State Fire Marshal’s Office in providing these smoke alarms for the citizens here in The Town of Selmer and McNairy County said Chief Anthony Carr of the Selmer Fire Department. “Fire can spread through a home in a matter of minutes and smoke alarms can give residents the warning needed to get out safely.” To request an installation, call 731-646-1788 and provide your name, address, and phone number. A fire department representative will then contact you to schedule a time for the installation. In addition to having working smoke alarms, follow these other important tips to make sure your home is fire-safe: Always stay in the kitchen when frying, grilling, or broiling food. Check to see that matches and lighters are kept up high in a cabinet with a childproof lock. Develop a home fire escape plan with two ways out of every room and an outside meeting place. Share and practice the plan with every member of the household. Keep portable space heaters and candles 3 feet away from anything that can burn, including people, furniture, and pets. Always turn off portable space heaters when you leave the room or go to bed. Have the chimney cleaned and checked regularly. Do not smoke in bed. Make sure that all matches and ashes are cool before being thrown away. Make sure that extension cords are in good condition and are used to power small items only – never major appliances.

Corinth, Miss.

New legislative session begins At noon last Tuesday, Speaker Gunn swung the gavel to open the 2017 Regular Session. As with any opening week, there was very little official business, particularly with inclement winter Jody weather on the way. Following the first day of Steverson session, Speaker Gunn and State Lt. Governor Reeves gathRepresentative ered in the Rotunda to commemorate 2017 as Mississippi’s Bicentennial. 200 years ago this year, the first Legislature convened in a church house in Washington, Mississippi. Gunn reminded the crowd that even though Mississippi had seen its share of tough times, the state’s contributions to the nation’s literature, music and history should be celebrated. The Mississippi Department of Archives and History even brought the original 1817 Constitution for visitors to see. This year’s Bicentennial year promises to be an enjoyable experience. You can follow all the statewide and community events by visiting ms200.org. The House took up one bill. HB 32 made a technical change to the appointed superintendent law. As you may recall, the Legislature passed a law last year to mandate that all school district superintendents be appointed after January 1, 2019. The problem with last year’s legislation is that it did not make provisions for situations when school district superintendents leave office early. We have a situation in Webster County where the elected superintendent has vacated the position, and the school district is looking at $60,000 to hold an election for a superintendent with less than three years in the term. HB 32 fixes this problem by saying that any superintendent position vacated between now and 2019 shall be filled by appointment and not an election. It passed 116-4. The Education Committee heard a report from the Mississippi Department of Education on the early outcomes of many of the Legislature’s education reform efforts. And while Mississippi traditionally assumes a position at the bottom of most indicators in national academic performance, there is reason to be optimistic. Since 2011, the state’s high school graduation rate has jumped to 80.8 percent (from 73.7 percent). In a year or two, Mississippi should meet or exceed the national average. Mississippi also ranks fourth in National Board Certified Teachers. Furthermore, our state was the only state in the nation with a significant increase in scores for fourth-grade reading and math. With good leadership and forward thinking policy, I believe our state will continue to turn the corner in educational achievement. This week, activity should be picking up as members face their first legislative deadline. Wednesday was the final day that members can request legislation for drafting. Please pray for me and the other legislators as we make decisions that will affect all Mississippians. Please contact me if I can help you, or if you have a question/comment concerning any legislation. You may email me at jsteverson@house.ms.gov, call me at 662.837.0194, 601.359.3457 or message me on Twitter and Facebook. I thank you for allowing me the honor to represent you in the Mississippi House of Representatives. Jody Steverson (R-Ripley) is State Representative for House District 4, representing Tippah and Alcorn counties. He serves as Vice Chairman of the House Public Utilities Committee and is also a member of the Ways & Means, Energy, Insurance, Transportation, Constitution and University & Colleges committees.

Prayer for today Creator of all, help me to see what there is for me to do; and help me to know that I cannot be productive if I am hovering in the choice of my work. May I learn from thy great works of heaven and earth the ways of selection and steadfastness. Give me the desire to work and the confidence that is needed to carry on my work. Amen.

Russian hacking and glass houses Many top U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded that Russian President Vladimir Putin directed a secret intelligence operation for the purpose of discrediting Hillary Clinton, thereby helping Donald Trump win the presidential election. Hillary Clinton has done more to discredit herself, going back to her time as first lady of Arkansas, than the Russians could ever do. According to an April 2015 Quinnipiac University poll, a majority of U.S. voters, 54 percent, found Hillary Clinton to be dishonest and untrustworthy. As Election Day approached, an ABC News/Washington Post poll found 46 percent of respondents thought Trump more trustworthy. Granted, this last poll followed emails and documents the intelligence agencies claim Russia hacked from the Democratic National Committee and the posting of “fake news” on social media. Even so, if Hillary Clinton had consistently displayed good character, it would have been difficult for anyone to smear her. While Democrats and some Republicans are blasting Russia, they should recall dubious actions by the United States. Presidents from both parties have a long history of lying and at-

tempting to dictate who should rule other nations. The John F. Kennedy Cal Presidential Thomas Library and Museum Columnist website reminds: “... on November 1, 1963, the South Vietnamese government was overthrown. The coup had the tacit approval of the Kennedy administration. President Diem was assassinated, after refusing an American offer of safety if he agreed to resign.” In 1973, Henry Kissinger urged President Richard Nixon to overthrow the democratically elected government in Chile because Kissinger believed President Salvador Allende’s “model effect can be insidious,” according to now unclassified documents from the National Security Archive. President George W. Bush launched Operation Iraqi Freedom in an effort to rid the world of Iraq’s tyrannical dictator Saddam Hussein on the pretense that he had, or was developing, weapons of mass destruction, which were never found. President Obama undermined the government of Egyptian President Hosni

Mubarak, which led to the election of President Mohamed Morsi, a leader in the radical Muslim Brotherhood. He was replaced by the current government, installed by Egyptians displeased with the radicals, despite opposition from the Obama administration. President Obama and Hillary Clinton advocated for the overthrow of Libyan dictator Muammar el-Qaddafi, which created a vacuum filled by terrorists who murdered the U.S. ambassador and two other Americans in Benghazi. The flipside of wrongheaded action is wrongheaded inaction. In Iran, during the 2009 peaceful protests by those who claimed that President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had stolen the presidential election from Mir Hussein Moussavi, the Obama administration offered condemnation, but little else, when action might have had a positive influence. Peaceful protestors were shot in the streets, arrested, tortured and imprisoned without trial, and the Ayatollahs tightened their grip. Iran is now on a course that will likely end with the development of nuclear weapons. President Obama also urged Britons to vote against Brexit and remain with the

European Union. Is any of this morally different from what Putin allegedly orchestrated to influence the American election? “Officials from the United States Central Command altered intelligence reports to portray a more optimistic picture of the war against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria,” writes The New York Times. And as The New York Post reported in September 2015, “An open revolt is underway within the U.S. intelligence establishment, with more than 50 veteran analysts charging their reports on ISIS were systematically changed to reflect the White House line.” Any Russian involvement in the November election appears to have uncovered information that Democrats were trying to hide and that reporters missed or ignored. What’s worse, the deeds or the way the deeds were discovered? Given America’s record of meddling in other countries and of leaders who have lied to us, we shouldn’t throw stones from glass houses.

Christian persecution continues in America Actress Meryl Streep’s political diatribe at the Golden Globes awards isn’t the only surprise attention-getting provocation from the event. Nominee film “Hidden Figures,” a box-office hit about the true story of three black women mathematicians who played important roles at NASA in the early days of the space program, is also generating unexpected controversy. The controversy surrounds Kim Burrell, the black gospel singer whose song “I See A Victory” appears on the soundtrack of the film. Burrell, in addition to being a gospel singer, is a pastor, and, with the release of “Hidden Figures,” a video emerged on the internet of her preaching in her church against homosexuality. Burrell was scheduled, as part of the film’s promotion, to appear and perform, along with the film’s soundtrack producer, Pharrell Williams, on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” But DeGeneres, an open lesbian, canceled Burrell’s appearance as a result of the video. Next, Burrell’s radio show, which is produced at Texas Southern University, was

canceled. Then she was disinvited from the BMI Trailblazers of Gospel MuStar sic Awards, Parker where she was a coColumnist honoree. Williams, appearing on DeGeneres’s show, said Burrell is a “fantastic singer,” but “there’s no room for any kind of prejudice in 2017.” Wait a second. It’s prejudice when a pastor condemns, in her church, behavior that the Bible, as understood by hundreds of millions of Christians around the world, prohibits, yet it’s not prejudice when others make every effort to purge that person from the public space because of her faith? As far as I know, Burrell just intended to sing on the DeGeneres show. I don’t think she planned to preach a sermon about homosexuality. DeGeneres, and the many sympathetic to her point of view, believe it is just fine to crush Burrell and destroy her career because of

her beliefs, but they are all for using the law to force a Christian baker to make a cake for a same-sex wedding or to force a Christian photographer to work at one. It should be clear that what motivates the pro-homosexual movement is not advancing a free and tolerant society. It is promoting a society that legitimizes their point of view and punishes those that reject it. This is fascism, not freedom. It behooves us to point out that rejection of homosexual behavior does not come from some crank that woke up in the night and decided it’s not OK. We are talking about Biblical scripture that has been guiding Christians for a few thousand years. Religion, of course, is about faith, not about science. It is about what is true and false, right and wrong, and how to live our lives. But if we want to bring science into the picture, data supports, in a powerful way, the importance of these traditional values. A 2015 study, for instance, published by the American Enterprise Institute and the Institute for Family Studies, showed that states with higher percent-

ages of children living with their biological parents in a traditional family have the highest median incomes, the fastest income growth, the lowest rates of child poverty and the greatest upward mobility. We can bring to bear all the beauty and power of the Christian faith, and the data and research showing that following these truths lead, in the long run, to healthier and wealthier lives. But we can’t make anyone follow the faith. That’s what freedom is about. Letting people choose. But what we’re experiencing now is growing religious persecution in our country. Those with anti-Christian values have considerable power through the media and are using it to eradicate Christian values and presence. This cannot be tolerated. But how do we solve the problem? Do we have to go back to the bizarre state of “separate but equal” we experienced with race? Star Parker is an author and president of CURE, the Center for Urban Renewal and Education.

The Maine-born artist moved to Mississippi at the age of 10, and spent a lot of his youth exploring the woods and drawing what he found within, reported The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal. “My interest and emphasis in semi-strange pen and ink drawings has not dissipated since I began drawing as a young child,” MacGown said. “I have always had the ability to see strange creatures and shapes in other things, much like finding shapes in clouds or bark.” MacGown is a scientific illustrator and assistant curator of the Mississippi State University Entomological Museum. That’s where he met GumTree Museum of Art ex-

ecutive director Belle Naugher. Now, MacGown’s artwork will be on display for all to see at the Tupelo museum beginning next week. “I love his depth and high detail,” Naugher said. “He toys with reality in a way that really comes to life in his art.” MacGown will have roughly 30 pieces on display at the museum through the end of March. A reception welcoming him and his art will be at the museum Wednesday, Jan. 25 at 5:30 p.m. Prints of MacGown’s work will also be available for sale throughout the exhibit’s duration, which ends March 24.

Bryant sets $51M more in cuts BY JEFF AMY Associated Press

JACKSON — Gov. Phil Bryant on Thursday ordered another $51 million in cuts from Mississippi’s $6.4 billion budget, as state revenues continue to lag. “It has become clear that revenue is not adequate to support budgeted expenses for the current fiscal year,” the Republican wrote in a letter to Department of Finance and Administration Executive Director Laura Jackson, ordering the cuts. In September, Bryant sliced $57 million to make up for an accounting error during legislative budget writing. Funding for most programs will be cut just under 1.5 percent, pushing

cuts for the year above 3 percent. Some programs are exempt, including Mississippi’s K-12 school funding formula, courts and prosecutors, parts of the Department of Public Safety and college financial aid. Bryant is also transferring $4 million from Mississippi’s $313 million rainy day fund, for a total budget change of $55 million. Bryant wrote in his letter to Jackson that he hopes Thursday’s action “will be enough to get state government through the current fiscal year, however, additional cuts of transfers from our rainy day fund may be required later.” The governor can take another $46 million from

the rainy day fund without legislative action, meaning he might be able to cushion further budget cuts. Late-year budget cuts are harder for agencies to absorb because they have less time to spread them out. Last year, Bryant had to call a special session to seek additional authority to withdraw rainy day funds after cutting the budget twice. Mississippi’s economy has lagged since the end of the recession, shrinking overall since 2008. State revenues recovered better but have been flat in recent years. Total revenue through the end of December is $44 million more than during the same six months of 2015, but $2 million below es-

timates. Recurring revenues — taxes, fines and fees — are running more than $50 million below last year, and nearly $100 million below projections. Revenue weakness likely means smaller budgets next year. Lawmakers recommend cutting 3 percent , or $195 million, although some of that could be made up with one-time revenue including lawsuit settlements. Bryant recommends spending $29 million less in the year starting July 1. Democrats blame the downturn on hundreds of millions of dollars in tax cuts enacted by Republicans since 2012. Republicans blame a weak economy, but many seek to shrink the size of government.

The index rose 0.4 in November, reflecting retailers’ higher profit margins and more expensive food. Economists forecast that the producer price index gained another 0.3 percent last month.

High school friend turned enemy continues her attacks D E A R ABBY: I need your help in dealing with an old “frenemy.” “Jenny” and I were Abigail friends in school, Van Buren high but she constantly beDear Abby rated me and accused me of taking advantage of her. She would make herself feel better by putting me down. After she went away to college, she got pregnant by a non-boyfriend. When she had an abortion, she swore me to secrecy because she didn’t tell the father. Shortly thereafter, he came to me and tricked me into telling him. To this day, Jenny still blames me and says I was out to get her and ruin her life. Jenny spread rumors about me around our group of friends, on the internet, and told my mom horrible lies about me. She even threatened a lawsuit. Ten years later, she still pops up out of the blue to attack me. A year ago, she sent me a message saying she wished I had died in a tornado that struck my area. She sends taunts about an old boyfriend of mine who got married and had a kid. I never respond because that’s what she wants. She pops up at

the worst times and makes me feel worse. How should I deal with her? -- AT A BOILING POINT IN TENNESSEE DEAR BOILING: Continue to ignore this troubled woman. Block her anywhere you can, and delete any messages that leak through so you won’t have to see them. If you have mutual friends who don’t know the whole story, you should have enlightened them years ago -- and the same goes for your mother. Jenny appears to have serious issues. She isn’t a “frenemy.” She is strictly bad news, so recognize it and move on. DEAR ABBY: While preparing a letter at work, I noticed that it was going to be mailed to a married lesbian couple. Typically, the correct way to address an envelope to a woman would be to Ms., Miss or Mrs. and to a male it’s either Mr. or Master, depending upon his age. What’s the proper way to address a gay couple? Is M/M still used in place of Mr. and Mr. and Mrs. and Mrs.? -- PROPER IN ILLINOIS DEAR PROPER: According to Steven Petrow’s “Complete Gay and Lesbian Manners,” the correct way to address the envelopes of married gay and lesbian couples should be (in alphabetical order): Mr. Bradley Burch and Mr. Mark Foster

Ms. Cecelia Carter and Ms. Diane Grant Or, if the couple shares the same last name: Mr. Bradley and Mr. Mark Burch Ms. Cecelia and Ms. Diane Carter DEAR ABBY: Now that I’m older, I often find it hard to remember all the names and amounts of my prescriptions when I visit my various doctors. To help myself, I now carry in my wallet a small copy of a spreadsheet listing all my medication information. That way, I can give accurate details to the physician. I’d like to pass my solution on to other readers who may have the same need to be precise and up-to-date when visiting the doctor. -- IN GOOD HEALTH IN AUSTIN DEAR IN GOOD HEALTH: That’s a suggestion worth sharing. And while you are at it, you should also list for your doctor any vitamins, supplements and over-the-counter meds you take on a regular basis. This information can also be stored in your smartphone, if you have one. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

Horoscopes ARIES (March 21-April 19). Who has time to judge other people? Judges. Well, they’re getting paid for it. Anyone who judges but isn’t getting paid for it simply doesn’t have enough excitement to draw the focus elsewhere. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). No opportunity can be written off today. Big and small, seize them all! Be on the lookout for opportunities that don’t really seem like they are. Those are the ones to catch. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The current problems are not interrupting your joy; in fact, they are a nice big slice of your joy. Somewhere in you, you know that you can overcome this, and overcome it you will. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You might know what the expectation would typically be in a given situation, but since there are individuals involved whose minds you can’t read, you don’t know what the expectation actually is. So, you may as well suit

yourself. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The one with the biggest picture wins every time. Today’s win: The side benefits will outweigh the real ones. This will happen because you’re playing a larger game than the one at the table you’re sitting around. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Everyone on the earth’s face wants to feel better, but each will go about it in different ways. Today, your tolerance for another person’s methods will make both of your lives easier. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Just as there are spaces in your home that you don’t use, there are spaces in your psyche that go untouched -- that is, until certain people come along. You’ll enjoy how the related emotional dynamic plays out today. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Better to take one piece of good advice and apply it to your life than to listen to 60 adages and apply none. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec.

21). Bottom line: If you are worried about rejection, then your fear is stronger than your desire. It’s not a good place to come from in business, and it’s a disastrous position if pleasure is your aim. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your mind can be crueler to you than any person has ever been. Do not let negative thinking keep you from taking an exciting risk. If you desire it, you can break your mental chains. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Remember when you went from one serious relationship straight into another and missed out on all that fun? What you learned from that will inform your weekend. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). People like the idea of winging things spontaneously, because that feels fun in the mind. But when it translates to real life, well, it could go a lot of ways. And it will. It can’t hurt to also have a plan in your back pocket.

ACT a success despite weather BY KENT MOHUNDRO kmohundro@dailycorinthian.com

The 68th annual Alcorn County Tournament is now history and enjoyed decent sized crowds despite the weather and displacement of games. To recap the championship round the Kossuth JV girls, Alcorn Central JV boys, Kossuth varsity girls, and Corinth varsity boys won gold balls. It was the first county championship title for former Alcorn Central player and now head Golden Bear JV coach Trae Bain. It was also the first ever varsity girls title for second-year Kossuth

head coach Chris Byrd. Despite the snow that altered the ACT schedule last Friday, total attendance was almost identical to last year as 2,518 paid attendees enjoyed the exciting action over three days. “I thought the entire event came off very well considering the weather,” said Crossroads Arena manager Tammy Genovese.”And considering how cold it got and having to move games we came out about the same in attendance as last year.” Genovese also pointed out another positive that came from moving the Friday night

games to Saturday afternoon. “That really helped the local economy because it freed up a lot of people to go out and eat and do other things after the games ended. We went to a local Mexican restaurant after the last game on Saturday and the place was packed.” Another positive result from the tournament was that all four county schools were represented during each session. That meant fans of Alcorn Central, Biggersville, Corinth and Kossuth were all in attendance for all three days of the yearly event. “That was also a good

thing that came out of the tournament,” Genovese continued.”Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, brothers, and sisters were all able to be there each time. That really helped boost our final numbers in spite of how the weather turned out.” The Crossroads Arena purchased a new floor for AAU ball a couple of years ago and, according to Genovese, they had planned on using that floor for this years ACT. However, when the arena crew brought the floor out of storage they discovered some Please see SUCCESS | 9A

Ole Miss men’s yennis shuts out Hawaii Associated Press

HONOLULU — The Ole Miss men’s tennis team not only enjoyed the beautiful beaches of Hawaii, but also racked up 23 wins in doubles and singles this week, including a 7-0 win over Hawaii on Wednesday in their first dual match of the 2017 season. After competing against players from LSU and Duke as part of the Rainbow Warrior Classic Monday and Tuesday, the Rebels took

on the host team Wednesday and needed less than two hours to take care of the Rainbow Warriors. The Rebels swept the doubles, only dropping six games total in three matches to go up 1-0. In singles, Zvonimir Babic was first off the court at six, followed by Grey Hamilton at five and then Ricardo Jorge clinched it at four. All three won in straight sets. Fabian Fallert and Gustav Hansson added straight set

wins as well and then freshman Tim Sandkaulen finished off his opponent in a super tiebreaker to close out the sweep and a 2-0 day in his first dual match.

Atlanta Falcons still chasing first championship The Associated Press

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. — The Atlanta Falcons practiced under blue skies Thursday, the temperature climbing toward 70 degrees. A rare sight, indeed, for this time of year — and not just because of the unseasonable winter weather. For only the eighth time in the franchise’s 51-season history, the Falcons are among

the final eight teams in the NFL playoffs. Of course, they have never won a Super Bowl title, an unachieved goal that looms in front of this highscoring team heading into Saturday’s divisional round game against the Seattle Seahawks. “It would be a huge,” said defensive lineman Jonathan Babineaux, the team’s longest-tenured player. “The

Todd Grantham was recently named defensive coordinator for Mississippi State. ally in either scoring or total defense in five of his seven seasons as a college defensive coordinator, including all three years at Louisville. “Todd has proven to be one of the best defensive coor-

dinators in the country this decade,” MSU head coach Dan Mullen said. “He understands what it takes to build a physical and aggressive defense at the highest of levels. We are excited to welcome he and his family to Starkville.” “When the opportunity to be part of Dan Mullen’s staff presented itself it was something my family and I became very excited about,” Grantham said. “Coach Mullen has built a winning program in the most challenging conference in the country. Along with our staff, I look forward to re-establishing the Bulldog defense as one of the top defenses in the coun-

try and making the fans of Mississippi State proud.” Grantham’s commitment to an aggressive and physical style was evident in Louisville’s run defense, which finished top-15 nationally in all three of his seasons. The Cardinals were 12th against the run in 2016 (115.2 ypg), 14th in 2015 (120.2 ypg) and No. 10 in 2014 (108.9 ypg).

the AAU floor almost smoothed out enough to use but decided to take the safe route and not take a chance with that floor not being quite ready.” There was also a heating issue on the main floor and the concourse with the temperatures dropping from the seventies to the teens overnight. There were additional industrial heaters brought out for the main concourse and also for the main floor to keep the basketball court at the proper temperature, which otherwise would have been a player safety issue. “Player and fan safety is our top priority. We strive to help each person that walks through these doors have a safe and enjoyable experience.” The 69th annual Alcorn County Tournament is scheduled for the first weekend of 2018: Thursday-Saturday, January 4-6.

They decided to put the warmers to it and attempt to smooth the floor out before the first practice, but when the Saturday before tournament week arrived Genovese said there wasn’t enough improvement to risk using the floor. That would have created safety issues. So they used the Crossroads Arena court one last time with plans to use the AAU court next year. The AAU court has a tera flex floor and is more flexible and forgiving. It will be used for the upcoming AAU tournament scheduled for the second weekend of April. “We have the AAU floor stored correctly now so we shouldn’t have any more issues with it,” she said.”There was a problem with the storage (Kent Mohundro directions originally and that’s what caused the is the sports editor problem for the county for the Daily Corintournament.

ranked in the Top 25 with the Rebels receiving votes. Thoughts from head coach Toby Hansson… “I am extremely happy with how fired up the guys were in doubles,” said Rebel head coach Toby Hansson.”We had done a great job all week, and they didn’t let up today. We kept the momentum going in singles and it was great to see everyone come out on top.

I love how we competed from top to bottom.” “It was good to see Tim help his team come out on top with a doubles and singles win in his first dual match and for Devin to record his first win as a coach. This is just the beginning of long and successful careers as a player and coach.” Up next… The Rebels will be back in action Jan. 28-29 at the ITA Kickoff in College Station, Texas.

get it off.” The Falcons made their only Super Bowl appearance during the 1998 season with a team that was known as the “Dirty Birds.” Despite going 14-2 during the regular season, still the best mark in team history, Atlanta was a huge underdog in the NFC championship game at Minnesota, facing a Vikings team that had lost only once and set what was then a record for most points in a season. But the Falcons rallied from 10 points down in the fourth quarter, catching a huge break when Gary Anderson botched a 38-yard field goal attempt in the closing minutes — his only miss of the season.

Atlanta won in overtime, 30-27, on Morten Andersen’s field goal. The magic of that inspiring victory did not carry over to the Super Bowl. Team leader Eugene Robinson was arrested the night before the game, and the Falcons lost to the Denver Broncos 34-19 in John Elway’s finale. Second-year coach Dan Quinn was Seattle’s defensive coordinator when the Seahawks won their first Super Bowl title three seasons ago. Looking to keep the focus firmly on this week’s game, he doesn’t want the Falcons thinking about the big picture. Not yet anyway. “That would be a great topic for a few weeks from now,” Quinn said with a smile.

ranks second nationally in yards per carry defense (3.3) behind only Alabama (2.6). Grantham’s unit finished No. 14 nationally in total defense in 2016 (322.2 ypg), No. 18 in 2015 (332.8 ypg) and No. 6 in 2014 (308.5). His 2014 squad led the nation in interceptions with 26, while the Cardinals have posted a three-year total of 58, which is tops nationally during that span. Grantham, a native of Pulaski, Va., saw seven players drafted into the NFL during his tenure at Louisville. He tutored Devonte’ Fields, who led the country in tackles for loss per game (1.73) in

2015 and was voted firstteam All-ACC in 2016. Fields is considered one of the top pass rushing prospects in the upcoming 2017 NFL Draft. Graham developed outside linebacker Lorenzo Mauldin into a first-team All-ACC selection in 2014 and a third round 2015 NFL Draft selection of the New York Jets. The Cardinals’ other starting linebacker that season, Deiontrez Mount was a sixth-round pick of the Tennessee Titans. Grantham joined the Louisville staff after four seasons as Georgia’s defensive coordinator (2010-13), including two seasons as the associate head coach under Mark Richt.

LA Rams hire Sean McVay as head coach The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Rams have made Sean McVay the youngest head coach in NFL history. The Rams on Thursday hired McVay, who turns 31 years old on Jan. 24. McVay spent the past three seasons as the Washington Redskins’ offensive coordinator. He has been an assistant since 2010 in Washington, where he worked with head coach Jay Gruden to build a prolific offense led by quarterback Kirk Cousins. “Really happy for Sean McVay!” Cousins tweeted. McVay replaces Jeff Fisher, who was fired 13 games into the Rams’ homecoming season in Los Angeles, and interim head coach John Fassel. The Rams finished 4-12 in their 13th consecutive non-winning season. The Rams made the eye-catching move on the same day that the Chargers announced their relocation to Los Angeles to share the Rams’ $2.6 billion stadium. The Chargers are still without

a coach, but the Rams grabbed headlines with one of the most interesting names on the coaching market. McVay wowed the Rams’ top brass during two recent interviews, but he is an unorthodox choice for the franchise, which hasn’t taken many extraordinary risks during owner Stan Kroenke’s tenure. While McVay is respected as an up-andcoming NFL mind, he has understandably meager experience, including none as a head coach. But perhaps risks are in order to snap the Rams out of their 12-year playoff drought. They’ve made the playoffs just four times in the last 27 years, all during a five-year span in St. Louis from 1999-2003, and they haven’t had a winning record in Los Angeles since 1989. Los Angeles has a young roster, but McVay is still younger than two of the Rams’ players, defensive linemen William Hayes and Eugene Sims. “He’s brought a lot to this football team, as far

as offensively, and done a good job calling plays and utilizing the people that we have,” Gruden said recently. Lane Kiffin was 31 years old when the Oakland Raiders hired him in January 2007. That hire didn’t go well, and McVay faces plenty of difficult work in his new job. The Rams’ offense has finished last in the NFL for two consecutive seasons. Quarterback Jared Goff was the No. 1 overall pick in last year’s draft, but he struggled in his half-season as their starter, while top running back Todd Gurley had a dismal second NFL season behind the same struggling offensive line. McVay could be wellequipped for the job of tutoring Goff: In Cousins’ two seasons under McVay as the Redskins’ starting quarterback, he twice broke the venerable franchise’s records for yards passing and completions. Washington averaged 403 yards per game this season, while the Rams didn’t have a 400-yard

offensive game all year long. Although McVay is a coaching youngster, he comes from a football family. His grandfather, John, spent 21 seasons in the San Francisco 49ers’ front office as a top executive involved in building several outstanding teams. McVay is widely expected to assemble a veteran staff around him. The Rams have repeatedly been linked to Wade Phillips, the respected defensive coordinator and former head coach. He is out of contract after the 69-year-old veteran led the Denver Broncos’ Super Bowl-winning unit last season. Phillips’ son, Wes, has been McVay’s tight ends coach in Washington. McVay held that job before becoming Gruden’s offensive coordinator in 2014. The Redskins are left looking for two new coordinators on Gruden’s staff after McVay’s departure and defensive coordinator Joe Barry’s firing a week ago.

Week marks loss of memorable English teachers This week has not been an easy one for some of us in the Crossroads area who hold fond memories of our former English teachers. For those of us who were inspired by those individuals and later became English teachers ourselves, the loss has been especially poignant. I did not know former Corinth High School English and typing teacher Ruth Sharp, although I met her once at Corinth TheatreArts while on the board. I had volunteered to work one Sunday Stacy afternoon in the Jones box office before a play, and a peThe Downtowner tite woman came to the box office window and announced in a determined voice, “Tickets for R. Sharp.” I had heard about Ruth Sharp, having had many friends who knew her and learned much from her in both English and typing classes at Corinth High School. Inferring that this were her standing in front of me, I fingered nervously through the tickets and found hers, wishing that I had spoken to her more at length that day. For those of us who are slightly younger and graduated from nearby McNairy Central High

As a teacher myself, I know that the way I have seen Ms. Sharp and Ms. Barclay remembered on social media this week is how all teachers want to be remembered: tough and serious but caring and loved by so many former students because they truly inspired them. School, we also lost a gem of an English teacher this week. Ms. Sarah Barclay taught English at MCHS for many years, and although she, too, was a slight woman, no one could miss her in the crowd. Ms. Barclay’s husband Bruce was a veteran of the Air Force, and they returned to McNairy County in the early 1970s, after which she began teaching English and drama at MCHS and their daughter Karen finished high school. Karen later taught art, psychology, and sociology at MCHS, before she and her mother moved to Tupelo where they had condominiums in The Belfry. Their condos were peppered with all manner of collectible glasswork and Karen’s artwork, mementoes of their life experiences. Ms. Barclay was a bohemian soul, a free spirit who, sporting her multi-colored high-top Ree-

bok tennis shoes, championed creativity and individuality. As one of my former assistant principals, Dr. Martha Glover, recalled, Ms. Barclay “would show off her new sneakers every year and took a lot of pride in them. She would get up on a table at our first faculty meeting and lead us in a Bobcat cheer to get our school year started off on a good note.” Dr. Glover once asked why she loved wearing so many different colorful shoes. Ms. Barclay told her that as a child, her family was poor, and she had one pair of shoes that were to be worn only for special occasions, so for much of the time she went barefoot. My ninth grade honors English teacher at MCHS, Ms. Barclay forged my more comprehensive introduction to English grammar and writing beyond elementary school, and I probably wouldn’t be as adept at

comma usage today without having known her. I wrote short stories while in her class, and she encouraged me, a shy freshman, to continue; she even gave me extra credit on some of my assignments for submitting my stories. No one had to ask Ms. Barclay her opinion of anything because she would inform you, whether it regarded behavior as her student or illogical political ideologies, no matter one’s age. However, she was tactful and poised. One of her former students, Leah Stanfield Charlton, who had Ms. Barclay for both junior and senior high school English, said, Whenever she had to leave the room, she would say, ‘Act with decorum.’” She added, “I’ll remember that, and her, forever.” For several years after I graduated, I kept up with Ms. Barclay’s annual milestones because at some point, perhaps after college, I managed to get on her annual Christmas letter list. I so enjoyed reading about her and Karen’s “escapades” each December when I received the letter, handwritten and photocopied onto stationery, in the mail. I read about her trips to Alaska, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Ireland — and of the latter, she said sardonically, “I’d say they have a drinking and

smoking problem.” She also espoused her mottoes about life. In a 2001 letter, she said, “ My philosophy of life is ‘you might as well laugh as cry, as you are going to die, so spend it, as you can take it with you.’” In 2007, she wrote, “I look forward to the New Year with gusto and plan to enjoy it. Life is too short to do otherwise.” To me, Ms. Barclay was ageless, and I never thought I’d see the day when we would lose her. I think of her now, that wide smile and impish laugh, as if she were determined to be a little mischievous—a commonly mispronounced word for which she taught me the proper pronunciation and which I will always remember, along with so much else about her. As a teacher myself, I know that the way I have seen Ms. Sharp and Ms. Barclay remembered on social media this week is how all teachers want to be remembered: tough and serious but caring and loved by so many former students because they truly inspired them.

A cheerful heart is always the best medicine Recently our five-yearold granddaughter Rilee Bea hurried into her mother’s room and declared, “Mama, I just blessyoued and the most disgusting Lora Ann stuff came Huff out!” Hollie Back Porch thought for a second to translate the language and realized her little red-head had sneezed and probably needed her nose wiped. Not many days before, Rilee Bea had ex-

plained that the dry stuff in the corner of her eyes was from “sleep crying.” When her mother asked what she was talking about, she said, “You know – when you have a dream that you are crying, that’s sleep crying.” I hadn’t heard that term before – and was reminded of when Art Linkletter had the TV show “Kids Say the Darndest Things.” He never knew what was going to come out of the kids’ mouths. Mr. Linkletter asked a little boy what’s the first thing a fireman does when he receives a fire call. The child immediately said, “He pulls up his

pants.” I guess that makes sense. He asked a little girl what she would do if elected president. Her reply was, “Keep my mouth shut.” That’s hard to believe, judging by a lot of little girls I know. I read about little Janey who came home from school and told her mother, “Today in class we learned how to make babies!” Trying to remain calm and not seem shocked, the mother answered, “That’s interesting, honey. How do you do that?” Janey proudly said, “Change the ‘y’ to ‘i’ and

add ‘es.’” At the bank, a woman stood in line about ten minutes before it was her turn at the teller’s counter. “I’m sorry about your wait, ma’am,” the teller said. Taken aback, the woman replied indignantly, “Well I declare, you’re not exactly Miss Skinny yourself!” And did you hear about the guy who swallowed a spoon? Afterwards he tried really hard not to stir! A husband and wife ended their evening with an argument and were so mad they vowed not speak to each other.

However, the husband was supposed to leave on a business trip the next morning so he left a note on his wife’s pillow, “Please wake me at 5 a.m.” When he awoke the next morning at 7 a.m., he knew he had missed his flight and started to give his wife a real going-over. Suddenly his gaze fell on a note on the edge of his pillow, “It’s 5 a.m. Get up!” I read that a good laugh is like manure to a farmer – it does no good until you spread it around, so I thought I would share a laugh or two today. I pass these “funnies” along in honor of two friends –

Steen Dalton and Billy Glidewell, who may need some material for their next social gathering. It’s true that a verse in Proverbs says a cheerful heart is good medicine but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.…So Steen and Billy will never have dry bones - they always have a cheerful heart and continually share the medicine with the rest of us.

Crossing over dead end tracks in life can lead to various realizations passed over them. When I realized what has happened to our smaller towns, and even to our railroad companies, I also realized that our lives are a lot like this. When, at one time, we valued our time and experiences to the service of God and country, we have become accustomed to living as the people around us. Satan has gotten a firm grip on our country and the hearts of many good people have been changed because of this. We have allowed the prince of the air into our schools, government, and now, our churches. We, as Christians and God fearing people, have sat back and watched as the values and pleasures of the world has taken over what we once relished. If you talk to the older generation, especially the ones that were part of the 40s, 50s, and 60s, they will tell you of the good old days and how everyone

As this world becomes more modern and electronically oriented we are going to find smaller towns and cities which once flourished with activity, on Gary a very slow Andrews scale of prosperity Devotionals and many e m p t y buildings. As I traveled to a city to work not long ago, I went through one of these towns. As I crossed over the railroad tracks, which at one time were very busy bringing products and people into this town, I noticed how weeds had grown up in the middle of the tracks. These were what we call dead tracks because they aren’t used anymore. They were actually an eyesore for the citizens and any visitors that

Some of the best things we ever had are passing away and many of the people in the world don’t realize it.

Suggested daily Bible readings: Sunday – Lamentations 1:1-7; Monday – Philippians 3:12-14; Tuesday – Psalm 77:1-6; Wednesday – Matthew 6:25-34; Thursday – Isaiah 43:18-19; Friday – Romans 12:1-2; Saturday – Ecclesiastes 2:10-11. went to town on Saturday. You would visit with your neighbors and friends face to face and really get to know who they were. Families ate together, went to church and worshipped together. Family Bible reading was a respected part of the day, especially at night and on Sunday. Elders were respected and listened to. Their wisdom was revered and, now that they are gone, and will be

lost forever. Several years ago there was a song produced by The Judds called “Grandpa tell me ’bout the good old days.” The first verse says “Grandpa, tell me ’bout the good old days, sometimes it feels like this world’s gone crazy. Grandpa, take me back to yesterday when the line between right and wrong didn’t seem to be hazy.” Many of us loved the good old days and haven’t really accepted all of the social media of today. The fast pace that we are in now, the many advantages

of electronics, computers, cell phones, and other devices, have replaced face to face business and friendships. Even though things are faster and we receive products quicker, our town, and the world, have suffered because we don’t even know our neighbors anymore. Youngsters of today will sit across the room and text each other instead of talking to each other. I am not saying this is not good because it is. I am saying we have let the faster, quicker advantages of the world get in the way of verbal communication and common friendships. Some of the best things we ever had are passing away and many of the people in the world don’t realize it. The hustle and bustle of the small towns and communities are fast becoming extinct and soon the many streets, as some of the railroad tracks, will become dead

end streets. However, all of us need to realize God gave us wisdom to move forward and whether we want to or not, He is going to put us where we need to be. Remember what it says in Ecclesiastes 7:10; “Do not say, “Why is it that the former days were better than these?” For it is not from wisdom that you ask about this.” All we have to remember is that God is in control and we are in His time not ours. Yes, I miss the good old days as many of you do but we need to realize God has a plan for all of us. Prayer: Father God again I thank you for this time on earth. I pray that I will serve you in the way you want to be served. Amen (Gary Andrews is the author of Encouraging Words: 30-days in God’s Word.

Making friends can combat loneliness WIZARD OF ID

PICKLES

Dear Annie: I am in my mid-60s. I live in a small town, where I know lots of people but have only one friend I can count on. Another really good friend had to move out of state for her job. And another friend, along with her husband, I have known for 35 years, but I get absolutely nothing in return. We only get together if I reach out to her. I’d like to cut her off, but I have no one to take her place. My extended family members are not too far away, but they are too busy to make a phone call or send an email. I’m friendly with my husband’s family members, who all live close by, but they never call or make any effort to keep us informed of family news. My husband has never helped in that regard because he doesn’t keep in touch with them, either. He also makes no effort to get together with friends. I have a happy marriage but need more than my husband to keep me company. I need more than one friend, as well. Having no friends is a problem I have had my whole life. My family of origin was rather dysfunctional, with a brother who was troubled and made it difficult for all of us. My parents were preoccupied with him and expected the rest of us kids to take care of ourselves, and be-

Dear Annie cause there were no other kids in the neighborhood to befriend, I feel that I was unprepared to make friends. Looking back now, I could have been a better friend to people as I became an adult but didn’t really get it at the time and was very frivolous with friendships. I get along fairly well socially now, but there is no one I can call and say, “Hey, let’s do something.” I also worry about what would happen if my husband or I got sick, which I’m seeing more with people in our age group. Whom would I call for support? Facebook makes me sad because it appears that others my age are still enjoying a very active social life. Has our culture created an atmosphere in which no one cares, or is it just me? — Nobody Calls Dear Nobody Calls: First off, there aren’t any people who are having as good a time as they seem to be on Facebook. If looking at those posts is bringing you down, log off for a while. Second, the best way to get somebody to call is to call her first. I know; you have tried reach-

ing out to some people. But keep trying. Check out Meetup, a website designed to bring people together in real life over common interests. There’s a group for everyone — amateur quantum physicists, alcoholfree adventurers, beer-drinking bookclubbers, puzzle enthusiasts, bridge players; I could go on all day. The point is that you need to get out and try new things. Friends are yours for the making. Dear Annie: Your advice to “Broken Living Room,” in my opinion, missed the mark and may cause the breakup of a long-standing friendship. Chairs are engineered and constructed to withstand years of holding up under the strain of overweight bottoms. If this friend was capable of getting to “Broken Living Room’s” house and getting herself seated, her weight was not the cause of the chair’s failure. “Broken Living Room” should replace the chair with a quality chair, or she should find a place to put her fragile chair where heavy friends won’t use it. Then she should forget the incident and nurture her friendship. She shouldn’t blame the friend. — Overweight Chair-User
