Bryant, officials break ground BY ZACK STEEN

Hundreds of local residents and officials gathered on Monday to welcome Gov. Phil Bryant to Tishomingo County for the ground breaking of Mississippi Silicon. “I want to thank the team from Mississippi Silicon as they move forward with this facility,” Bryant said as he spoke to the large crowd of excited Mississippians. “Upon completion of this facility, Mississippi Silicon will join the long list of manufacturing companies who trust the state and our strong work force.” The silicon metal production company announced in December it would be locating the facility at the former site of New River Homes on Industrial Drive in Burnsville. The company will be investing $200 million in the area and says the new facility will create 200 jobs. “I feel like this is the first step in the right direction for Tishomingo and Alcorn counties,” said District 1 Rep. Lester “Bubba” Carpenter (R-Alcorn, Tishomingo). “Mississippi Silicon will become the anchor tenant on the Yellow CreekBurnsville site.” Carpenter said the site encompasses 900 acres of land set aside for manufactures like Mississippi Silicon. “This is a great location for new manufacturers and our combined work force from Tishomingo and Alcorn is unmatched,” added Carpenter. Tishomingo County Development Foundation Executive Director Gary Matthews agreed. “This is big for all of North Mississippi not just Tishomingo,” said Matthews. “The job creation will bring more and better jobs to our community and rejuvenate the local economy.” Mississippi Silicon is a strategic partnership between Rima Holdings USA, Inc., and

The Alcorn County Tournament set a record on the final night of the three-night basketball event. Saturday night’s championship round produced a singlenight record crowd of 1,957 paid customers at the Crossroads Arena. The previous high mark for a night was the 1,757 in attendance on championship night in 2005. “Saturday was packed,” said tournament director Jimmy Whitaker. “It was the largest crowd I have been around since the tournament was moved to the arena.” Corinth High School swept both varsity titles games along with taking home the gold in the junior varsity boys contest. CHS won the boys title for an eighth consecutive time and 40th overall. The Warriors downed Biggersville in overtime a second straight year, winning 40-38. The Lady Warriors, who knocked off top seed Kossuth on the first night, claimed their third ACT crown behind a 58-51 decision over Alcorn Central. Corinth took the JV title with a 51-41 victory over Central. In the first title game of the night, Kossuth defeated Biggersville 49-32. “All the games turned out to be competitive,” said Whitaker. “It was a fun three days … I think everyone enjoyed the tournament.” Saturday night was the ninth time a crowd of over a 1,000 attend the event since it moved to the multi-purpose facility in 2005. The only time championship night didn’t see at least 1,000 in the stands was in 2010 when the tourney was postponed two days because of snow.

Schools review proposed calendar changes Pickin’ on the Square BY JEBB JOHNSTON

A later start date for school next year will necessitate some other changes in the Corinth School District’s calendar. The board of trustees reviewed a draft of the proposed calendar Monday evening. It will be posted on the district’s website to give parents an opportunity to provide feedback before adoption of a final calendar. Teachers have already seen the pro-

posal. The proposed start date is Aug. 18 — the earliest allowed by law as the Mississippi Legislature mandated a later start date to the school year. It is 10 calendar days later than the current year began. That would put the last day of school on May 29, the Friday following Memorial Day. The calendar also has first semester exams falling after the Christmas break. “It’s kind of a tough situation, and

we’ve got to decide what we want,” said Superintendent Lee Childress. “There’s not much flexibility unless you take away some holidays.” As proposed, the calendar maintains the existing holidays and includes two snow days. Options include reducing the fall break during Thanksgiving week to two days or reducing the length of the Christmas break. Please see CALENDAR | 2

Intense cold blast seen as statistical rarity BY JEBB JOHNSTON

Last week’s cold blast was of an intensity that, statistically, local residents shouldn’t see again for a while. For locations east of the Mississippi River, the Jan. 5-8 event can be considered a 1 in 20-year to 30-year cold outbreak, according to Victor Murphy, climate focal point at the National Weather Service Southern Region Headquarters in Fort Worth, Texas. While Corinth broke the record low for the city on Monday, Jan. 6, it tied the record on Tuesday, Jan. 7, with a low of 5, matching the low temperature of Jan. 7, 1970, exactly 44 years earlier. It was the coldest low temperature in the city since also hitting 5 on Jan. 14, 2011. From 7 a.m. Monday to 7 a.m. Tuesday, the highest temperature

“Using the 7 a.m. to 7 a.m. time scale as measured in the coop world, this is the sixth coldest daily maximum temperature ever on record for Corinth and the coldest since December 1989.” Troy Kimmel Meteorologist, formerly of Corinth recorded by the cooperative observer was 17. “Using the 7 a.m. to 7 a.m. time scale as measured in the coop world, this is the sixth coldest daily maximum temperature ever on record for Corinth and the coldest since December 1989,” said meteorologist Troy Kimmel, formerly of Corinth. The extreme cold snap could have a benefit or two for agriculture.

Patrick Poindexter, ag and natural resources extension agent with the MSU Extension Center, said the three days of cold might help to curtail the population of detrimental insects such as fleas, tics and stink bugs. It could also help avert the mild winter scenarios in which dormancy ends too early and plants are bit by a late frost, he said.

relocates for winter BY KIMBERLY SHELTON

Every Thursday night from 7 to 9 p.m., Waldron Street is transformed as the sounds of bluegrass, gospel, folk, and country music waft through the courthouse square. Pickin’ on the Square was founded in August 2003 by Patricia Nachbar Harville as a way of showcasing the talent of local artists and entertaining the community. The free show has become a Corinth tradition with local musicians entertaining their neighbors and friends. One hometown musician and a regular at the weekly concert is Archie Harville who picks on a dulcimer that he himself handcrafted and makes in his spare time. Held year round, the musical stylings boast “old time” fun for audiences of all ages. This August, the bluegrass nights will celebrate ten years of “picking-and-grinning.” During the warmer months, spectators bring lawn chairs or stretch out on blankets while they experience the sights and sounds of days gone by. When the weather turns cold, the show is taken from the outside square and brought indoors. In the past, it has been relocated to either the Coliseum Civic Center at 404 Taylor St., or the auditorium of East Corinth High School. This year, Pickin’ on the square will be held at the back of the old Norman building with the entrance located just through the courtyard. Plans are currently in place to rename the building. No word yet on when the naming will be concluded. (For more information, contact Patricia Nachbar Haville at 662-287-1388 or 662-4150669.)

In support of the project, the Mississippi Development Authority provided assistance through the Mississippi Industry Incentive Financing Fund for construction and workforce training needs, as well as New Market Tax Credits. Tishomingo County and Tennessee Valley Authority provided assistance for the project, as well.

Gov. Phil Bryant joins with other state, regional and local officials for the ground-breaking of Mississippi Silicon in Burnsville. The manufacturer is slated to invest $200 million and create 200 jobs at the new Tishomingo County facility.Â


This calendar would, however, eliminate the concern about teacher pay in August. “This calendar, along with three professional development days in July, would allow us to pay them their full salary in August,� said Childress. He described the May 29 ending date as the “major downside� to the calendar. Per a recent change in law, Mississippi schools cannot open the year before the third Monday in August. The hot weather of August was one reason cited by supporters of the law. Childress said legislation could be a factor again — a bill has been introduced that would reduce the required number of student days from 180 to 175.


Overall, the ACT drew 3,531 over the three nights, making it the second largest attended tournament at the arena since the 3,804 in 2005. “I would say we had a good 5,000 people total counting those who had passes,� added the Crossroads Arena’s Cindy Davis.

Former Reagan spokesman Speakes dies BY EMILY WAGSTER PETTUS Associated Press

JACKSON — Larry Speakes, who spent six years as acting press secretary for President Ronald Reagan, died Friday in his native Mississippi. He was 74. Speakes died at home in Cleveland, Miss., where he had lived the past several years, said Bolivar County Coroner Nate Brown. Brown said Speakes had Alzheimer’s disease. “He died in his sleep and it was a natural death,� Brown said. Speakes was buried in North Cleveland Cemetery during a private service Friday morning, a few hours after dying, said Kenny Williams of Cleveland Funeral Home. Speakes became Reagan’s acting spokesman af-

ter Press Secretary James Brady was wounded during an assassination attempt on Reagan in 1981. In a statement issued from Los Angeles, former first lady Nancy Reagan said that she was “saddened to learn about Larry, who served Ronnie with great loyalty in one of the toughest jobs in the White House.� “He stepped up in very difficult circumstances and was an articulate and respected spokesman day in and day out, including some very historically significant moments,� Reagan said. “It is a source of special sadness to know he suffered from Alzheimer’s disease.� Ronald Reagan died in 2004 after a 10year battle with Alzheimer’s disease. Republican Haley Barbour, who served as Mis-

sissippi governor from 2004 to 2012, was political director of the Reagan White House when Speakes worked there. He said Friday that it wasn’t unusual to have tension between the political office and the press office, but he and Speakes had a good working relationship. Barbour said that within the Reagan administration, people generally admired Speakes’ handling of the press, although Speakes could be abrupt. “Sometimes, that meant reporters didn’t get everything they wanted, and sometimes it meant they didn’t get anything,� Barbour said Friday. “But, Larry knew who he worked for.� Peter Roussel, who worked with Speakes in the Ford and Reagan press offices, said Speakes con-

ducted more than 2,000 press briefings. “Larry set high performance standards for himself and for those who worked for him,� Roussel said. Dennis Brack, a photographer who has covered the White House for the Black Star photo agency since the 1960s, said Speakes had a good relationship with photographers during the years when Reagan, a former actor, was president. But when photographers took pictures of President Gerald Ford falling down the steps of Air Force One in Austria in 1976, Speakes complained that the press was determined to make the president “look like a klutz,� said Brack, author of “Presidential Picture Stories: Behind the Cameras at the White House,� published in December.

Today in history Today is Tuesday, Jan. 14, the 14th day of 2014. There are 351 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Jan. 14, 1964, former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy, in a brief televised address, thanked Americans for their condolences and messages of support following the assassination of her husband, President John F. Kennedy, nearly two months earlier.

On this date: In 1784, the United States ratified a peace treaty with England, ending the Revolutionary War. In 1814, the Treaty of Kiel ended hostilities between Denmark and Sweden, with Denmark agreeing to cede Norway to Sweden, something Norway refused to accept. In 1900, Puccini’s opera “Tosca” had its world premiere in Rome. In 1914, Ford Motor Co. greatly improved its assembly-line operation by employing an endless chain to pull each chassis along at its Highland Park plant. In 1943, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and French General Charles de Gaulle opened a wartime conference in Casablanca. In 1952, NBC’s “Today” show premiered, with Dave Garroway as the host, or “communicator.” In 1954, Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio were married at San Francisco City Hall. (The marriage, however, lasted only about nine months.) In 1963, George C. Wallace was sworn in as governor of Alabama with the pledge, “Segregation today, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever!” — a view Wallace later repudiated. Sylvia Plath’s novel “The Bell Jar” was published in London under the pen name “Victoria Lucas,” less than a month before Plath committed suicide. In 1969, 27 people aboard the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise, off Hawaii, were killed when a rocket warhead exploded, setting off a fire and additional explosions. In 1970, Diana Ross and the Supremes performed their last concert together, at the Frontier Hotel in Las Vegas. In 1989, President Ronald Reagan delivered his 331st and final weekly White House radio address, telling listeners, “Believe me, Saturdays will never seem the same. I’ll miss you.” In 1994, President Bill Clinton and Russian President Boris Yeltsin signed an accord to stop aiming missiles at any nation; the leaders joined Ukrainian President Leonid Kravchuk in signing an accord to dismantle the nuclear arsenal of Ukraine.

Ten years ago: Former Enron finance chief Andrew Fastow pleaded guilty to conspiracy as he accepted a ten-year prison sentence. (He was actually sentenced to six years and was released in Dec. 2011.)

‘Invention of Wings’ is year’s 1st great novel she’d be a seamstress like her mauma, but it wasn’t to be. After she was given to Miss Sarah, she was told that she was to sleep outside Miss Sarah’s bedroom, like a personal servant would do. But most nights, Handful crept away to Mauma, where she listened to stories of her granny-mauma, and laid beneath quilts that gave her dreams of flight. Though Sarah tried to give Handful her freedom, it wasn’t allowed by law so she did the next best thing: she taught Handful to read, which was also illegal. They would both be punished for it: Handful, by lash and Sarah, by banishment from her father’s library. It was the final straw for Sarah, who suddenly understood that she would never become a lawyer like her brothers.


Your best friend has been all a-flutter about something lately. You haven’t seen much of her, in fact. She’s been sticking close to her nest but that’s okay. Next time you get together, it’ll be just like you were never apart. That’s the way a longtime friendship is: no matter how much you don’t see one another, you know your friend is somewhere and, as in the new novel “The Invention of Wings” by Sue Monk Kidd, she’ll come flying when you need her. Eleven-year-old Sarah Grimké did not want to own a human. Already at that age, she understood that it was wrong to have slaves

but Mother insisted. The Grimkés were one of Charleston ’s finest families. It would be unseemly for a proper young lady to be without her own handmaid. So for Sarah’s birthday, Mother gave her Hetty, also known as Handful. For most of her nine years, Handful figured

No, society was where Sarah belonged, though she thought it dreadful. Once she entered a world of dances and parties, she rarely saw Handful. Sarah didn’t need a handmaid any more and Mother was happy to have Handful back. Handful had become quite the seamstress. But Handful had also found life outside the homestead walls, sneaking out as much as she could — though if caught, punishment would be swift and harsh but she wasn’t afraid. They could own her body. They would never own her mind. Sweeping, reaching, and maybe just a tad too long, “The Invention of Wings” is one of those books that pulls you into another world and makes

you believe. That’s because, as you’ll learn by reading the author’s notes, Sue Monk Kidd based a lot of this novel on reality. Yes, there really was a Sarah Grimke, about whom Kidd says she wanted to write a “thickly imagined story….” She succeeds at that endeavor by adding Handful and her mauma. The anger that bubbles just beneath these two characters’ lives, the hopes they harbor and the plotting they do makes this book what it is. And what it is, is nearperfect. For book clubs and Saturday afternoons, bedtime and lunchtime, if you’re looking for the years’ first great novel, here you go. “The Invention of Wings” absolutely soars.

Gunn: Teachers deserve salary hike are trying merit pay. The National Education Association, a teachers’ union, said that in 2011-12, Mississippi teachers were paid an average of $41,646, the second-lowest rate in the country. Even without an across-the-board pay raise, Mississippi has a salary schedule that gives teachers a “step” increase of $495 a year. Teachers with master’s, specialist or doctoral degrees earn more. Those with 35 years’ experience and a doctorate make at least $64,870, and many districts offer local pay supplements. House Appropriations Committee Chairman Herb Frierson, R-Poplarville, said last year it would cost at least $35 million to give a $1,000 pay raise to all certified school employees. That includes teachers, administrators, counselors and others.

by the Stennis Institute of Government and the Capitol press corps. Gov. Phil Bryant, a fellow Republican, has said repeatedly that he wants to base any teacher pay increases on test scores and job evaluations. Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves, a Republican who presides over the Senate, said he also prefers merit pay raises over acrossthe-board raises. Gunn said he believes most teachers are doing a good job and because it has been seven years since they’ve gotten a pay raise it is time to give them more money. “I think it will enhance the quality of education in Mississippi,” Gunn said. The last time Mississippi teachers received an across-the-board raise was in 2007, a state election year. Four districts — Clarksdale, Rankin County, Lamar County and Gulfport —

JACKSON — Mississippi House Speaker Philip Gunn on Monday repeated his support for an across-the-board teacher pay raise this year. But, the Republican said it will be weeks before lawmakers will know how much money is available to put into raises. Legislators have an early April deadline to adopt a budget for fiscal 2015, which begins July 1. The House and Senate would have to agree on a teacher pay plan before anything could go to the governor. Gunn said he likes the idea of merit pay but there is no effective way now to evaluate which teachers are good or bad. “I don’t want to pay bad teachers. I wish they would go do something else,” he told an audience of about 50 during a forum sponsored

Corinth, Miss.

Living life leashed to the electronic whipping post BY ROGER SIMON I woke up, fell out of bed and brought my iPhone to my head. I had to learn whom to hate today. In olden times, this was a laborious process. You had to go down to the village square to see who had been put in the stocks. Today the despised are far more numerous, but the Internet both creates and keeps track of them. MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry was a target recently for ridiculing Mitt Romney’s black grandchild. Romney, who has a Twitter account with more than 1.5 million followers, had tweeted a Christmas card with a family photo of him and his wife, Ann, surrounded by their 22 grandchildren. Harris-Perry assembled a panel on TV to make fun of the card, pointing out the one black Romney face in a sea of white Romney faces. This was kind of stupid and kind of cruel — which meant it was perfect. Twitter lit up like a pinball machine, with Harris-Perry as the ball. Harris-Perry apologized. On Sunday, Romney accepted Harris-Perry’s apology, a “news” item that led Google News and was one of the most read political stories in The Washington Post. Also at the electronic whipping post was Michael Scheuer — a former CIA intelligence officer, a TV talking head and an adjunct professor at Georgetown University — who wrote a blog that harshly attacked President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron. This led to a headline on Daily Kos, “Georgetown University Professor/Fox News Expert Calls For Obama’s Assassination,” and an article by David Frum on The Daily Beast that stated: “In the modern media environment, it’s pretty hard to go too far. Advocacy of murder, however, does cross one of the last remaining lines.” Actually, I would argue that in the modern media environment, it’s very easy to go too far. All you have to do is shoot your mouth off and wait for it to ricochet around the Web. Scheuer’s alleged threat amounts to his writing: “Messrs Obama and Cameron and their supporters in all parties would do well to read the words of the great 17th century English republican Algernon Sidney ... (who wrote), ‘every man might kill a tyrant; and no names are recorded in history with more honor, than of those who did it.’” Personally, I would imprison for life anybody who uses “Messrs” in his writing. Sidney was executed for treason, by the way, Dec. 7, 1683, which brings us, somehow, to Pearl Harbor and SpaghettiOs. On New Year’s Eve, NBC’s Carson Daly hosted a show from Times Square in which he attacked SpaghettiOs for weeks earlier tweeting a picture of a large SpaghettiO holding an American flag, with the caption, “Take a moment to remember #PearlHarbor with us.” “It offended a lot of people, corporations glomming onto, you know, sentimental American historic traditions,” Daly said. To which comedian Natasha Leggero replied, “I mean, it sucks that the only survivors of Pearl Harbor are being mocked by the only food they can still chew.” SpaghettiOs already had been forced to apologize for its unpatriotic use of pasta, but Leggero wrote on her Tumblr account: “I wish I could apologize, but do you really want another insincere apology that you know is just an attempt at damage control and not a real admission of guilt?” Well, yes, of course we do. We appreciate it when people fake sincerity. So I’d like to issue blanket and solemn regret for anything I might write in the future. The Koch brothers are the spawn of an ancient alien race sent from the cosmos to take over the Earth. My sincerest apologies. (Roger Simon is chief political columnist of, an award-winning journalist and a New York Times best selling author.)

Prayer for today Almighty God, help me to appreciate the sacredness of work while I have it to do. Grant that I may be spared the wretchedness that comes from working with fragments from idleness. May I do my part, even if it be in obscurity and the night overtakes me before it is done. Amen.

A verse to share “And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever. The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.” -- Exodus 14:13-14v

Alligator suit before state’s high court BY JACK ELLIOTT JR. JACKSON — State wildlife officials want the Mississippi Supreme Court to throw out a dispute between a Wilkinson County couple and ExxonMobil Corp. over an alleged alligator infestation. In a friend-of-the-court brief, the wildlife agency argues “because wild alligators are the property of the state, and not subject to private ownership, private landowners have no duty to prevent them from causing damage to the land of neighboring property owners.” Tom and Cassandra Christmas disagree. They will present their case to the Supreme Court in oral arguments scheduled for Feb. 4 in Jackson. The case began after the Christmases bought 35 acres between Centreville and Woodville in December 2003. Next door to their property was a refinery waste disposal site owned and maintained by ExxonMobil — a site that’s home to dozens of alligators. The Christmases say they didn’t know what was

across the fence until they cleared the property and moved there in 2007. The couple sued the oil company in August 2008, seeking damages for permanent depreciation of their land. A judge threw out the lawsuit in 2011. Exxon appealed a state Court of Appeals ruling in May that returned the case to Wilkinson County Circuit Court. The Christmases argue that jurors should determine whether the alligators are a nuisance. The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks says between 32,000 and 38,000 wild alligators live in Mississippi, with about 408,000 acres of habitat. In its brief, the department argues that the Legislature gave it domain over wild alligators and, contrary to what the Christmases say, wild alligators living in their natural habitat do not constitute a nuisance that should be abated. “Rather, the wild alligator is a protected species that needs to be managed and regulated by the depart-

ment, not private landowners,” the MDWFP said in court documents. The agency said allowing such broad private nuisance suits such as the Christmases’ creates a separation-ofpowers issue. “Private nuisance suits are incompatible with the department’s exclusive authority to determine whether a wild alligator constitutes a nuisance and to take the appropriate action when it makes such a finding. Allowing such suits to proceed would result in a transfer the department’s regulatory authority over ‘nuisance’ alligators to the courts, which lack the expertise to make these types of decisions,” the agency said. A company had shipped refinery waste from Louisiana to the Wilkinson County disposal site beginning in 1980. The site stopped taking waste in the 1990s. Exxon bought the property in July 2001. Alligators were allegedly introduced to the site from Louisiana as early as 1984 as “canaries” to warn of hazardous contamination in the retention ponds. Ex-

actly who put the reptiles there is a matter of dispute. ExxonMobil argues the Christmases’ real estate agent told the couple about the alligators as far back as 2003. Exxon says the couple waited too long to file a lawsuit claiming the gators robbed them of enjoyment of their land, and the threeyear statute of limitations has passed. Court records say state wildlife officials conducted an alligator census of the property in 2007 and counted about 84 alligators but officials said not all may have been counted. The Christmases said they had occasionally seen alligators after they bought the land, according to the court records. The couple said they first learned where the alligators were coming from in 2007, when Tom Christmas was allowed on the ExxonMobil property to search for a lost hunting dog.

The enemy of our enemy In the wars she has fought, America has often allied with regimes that represented the antithesis of the cause for which we were fighting. In our Revolutionary War for freedom and independence from the tyrant King of England, our indispensable ally was the King of France. In World War I, Woodrow Wilson said we were fighting to “make the world safe for democracy.” Yet our foremost allies were five avaricious empires: the British, French, Italian, Japanese and Russian. In World War II, the ally who did most of the fighting against Hitler was Josef Stalin. Enough said. In America’s wars, the enemy of our enemy has often been our ally, if not our friend. And that is the question of the hour in the Middle East. The region seems to be descending step by step into a war of all against all. And at its heart is the civil-sectarian war to overthrow the Syrian Alawite regime of Bashar Assad. Now that war has spilled over into Lebanon and Iraq. And in Syria and Iraq our principal enemies are the jihadists of the al-Nusra Front and ISIS, the Islamic State of Syria and the Levant. Implacably anti-Ameri-

can, these Islamist fighters control enclaves in northern Syria and appear to Pat have capBuchanan tured Fallujah and Columnist perhaps Ramadi, crucial cities of Iraq’s Anbar province for which hundreds of Americans died. And who are the foremost fighting foes of the Nusra Front and ISIS? In Syria it is Bashar al Assad, whom Obama said two years ago must leave, and a Syrian army, which Obama was about to attack in August, until the American people rose up to tell him to stay out. Who are Assad’s allies against the al Nusra Front and ISIS? Vladimir Putin’s Russia, Iran, and Hezbollah whose forces helped turn the tide back last year against the rebels. In Iraq and Syria, al-Qaida jihadists and Sunni terrorists, our enemies, are also the enemies of Iran, Hezbollah and Assad. Indeed, Iran has offered to join us in sending military assistance to Baghdad in its fight against the al-Qaida-backed rebellion in Anbar.

Yet, there are other vantage points from which this widening war is being seen, and one is Riyadh. While Saudi Arabia has come to recognize the menace of ISIS and sent aid to Syria, the larger and longerterm threat Riyadh sees is Tehran. And understandably so. Saudi Arabia is the Sunni and Arab power in the Persian Gulf. But Shia and Persian Iran is almost twice as populous and at the heart of a Shia Crescent of Iran, Iraq, Syria and Hezbollah. Moreover, Riyadh in 2013 saw her superpower patron, America, back away from an attack on Syria, negotiate in secret with Iran, and begin talks with the Ayatollah’s regime on limitations to its nuclear program — in return for a lifting of U.S. sanctions. To the Saudis, what appears to be an emerging detente between Tehran and Washington looms as a strategic disaster. From Israel’s vantage point, the overthrow of Assad would mean the isolation of Hezbollah, which would no longer receive weapons from a Syrian regime that Hezbollah had fought to keep out of power. But what about America’s point of view? “Sooner or later,” The

Washington Post writes, “the United States will have to face the threat to its vital interests emerging across the Levant.” But, with due respect, there are no U.S. “vital interests” in the Levant. The vital interest America has in that region is to keep the oil flowing out of the Gulf, upon which the global economy depends. The greatest threat to U.S. interests there is not autocrats, Sunni or Shia, interested in getting rich, but radicals with the mindset of suicide bombers taking over a state and spreading revolution down the Gulf. War is the clear and present danger, and peace the necessary condition of securing those interests. The defeat of ISIS in Anbar and Syria and peace in the region should be our primary goal. And if Iran is willing to assist Damascus and Baghdad in defeating al-Qaida, Iran should be treated as a temporary ally in a common cause. After all, FDR and Truman got on famously with “good old Joe” Stalin.

Older adults top health care signups WASHINGTONâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an older, costlier crowd thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signing up so far for health insurance under President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s law, according to government figures released Monday. Enrollments are lower for the healthy, younger Americans who will be needed to keep premiums from rising. Young adults from 18 to 34 are only 24 percent of total enrollment, the administration said in its first signup figures broken down for age, gender and other details. With the website now working, the figures cover the more than 2 million Americans who had signed up for government-subsidized private insurance through the end of December in new federal and state markets. Enrolling young and healthy people is important because they generally pay more into the system than they take out, subsidizing older adults. While 24 percent is not a bad start, say independent experts, it should be closer to 40 percent to help keep premiums down. Adults ages 55-64 were the most heavily represented in the signups, accounting for 33 percent of the total. Overall, the premiums paid by people in that demographic donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fully cover their medical expenses. Some are in the waiting room for Medicare; that coverage starts at age 65. Some questions re-

mained unanswered. Â

Facility flew under regulatory radar CHARLESTON, W.Va. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The facility whose chemical spill contaminated the water supply for 300,000 West Virginia residents was barely scrutinized, flying largely under the radar of government regulators who viewed it as a low-risk operation â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but in reality, a problem at a key holding wall went undetected and unreported at Freedom Industries Inc. The chemicals stored at Freedomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s facility near the Elk River are not considered hazardous enough by regulators to prompt routine inspections. As a result, the chemical storage terminal was a low priority for regulators, who must pick and choose how to allocate scarce manpower when enforcing environmental laws. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that the loophole that this facility fell into is because it was not a hazardous material, it flew under the radar,â&#x20AC;? said Randy Huffman, cabinet secretary of West Virginiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department of Environmental Protection, which enforces environmental laws. Freedomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s storage terminal holds millions of pounds of chemicals â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including some used in coal processing â&#x20AC;&#x201D; just a mile and a half upstream from pipes that take in water for a public drinking supply. The distance left little opportunity for chemicals to dilute in the event of a spill. And those chemicals

A state official says the president told regulators that Freedom had put $1 million into an escrow account to fix the wall that ultimately failed to hold Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spill, which resulted in a fiveday ban on tap water. The ban was lifted for some areas Monday. Â

2 arrested, booked in drug lab probe BOONEVILLE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Authorities in Prentiss County say two people were arrested Thursday in an investigation of a suspected drug lab. Deputies tell WTVA-TV it started when 51-yearold Stephen Hopkins was arrested at a roadside checkpoint for possession of methamphetamine. Investigators say they obtained a warrant and searched Hopkinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; home in New Site. There, they say they found a methamphetamine lab. Another suspect was arrested at the house and booked with manufacturing a controlled substance. Deputies identified her as 52-yearold Linda Morgan.

Court likely to limit appointments WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Just back from their own long break, Supreme Court justices set out Monday to resolve a politically charged fight over when the Senateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s absence gives the president the power to make temporary appointments to high-level positions without senatorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; approval. The legal battle is the outgrowth of partisan rancor over presidential appointees that has characterized Washington over the past 20 years, and especially since President Barack Obama took office in 2009. Recess appointments have divided Democrats and Republicans, with views changing depending on which party holds the White House. But during more than 90 minutes of arguments Monday, the Obama administration was hard pressed to find support for its stand in favor of recess appointments from justices named by Republicans and Democrats alike â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including Obama.

Court denies Killen rehearing appeal

Oxford adopts adult business ordinance

JACKSON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The U.S. Supreme Court has denied a rehearing request from Edgar Ray Killen, convicted in 2005 for the 1964 slayings of three civil rights workers in Mississippi. The justices issued the order Monday without comment. In November, the Supreme Court declined to review lower court rulings that Killenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rights were not violated during his trial in Mississippi. Killen, now 88, was convicted of manslaughter in the slayings of Michael Schwerner, James Chaney and Andrew Goodman. He is serving 60 years. On June 21, 1964, Schwerner, Chaney and Goodman disappeared in Neshoba County. The FBI found their bodies buried in an earthen dam on Aug. 4, 1964, in what became known as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mis-

OXFORD â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The city of Oxford has a new ordinance regulating adult businesses. The Oxford Eagle reports that the board of aldermen adopted the ordinance this past week. The ordinance that sets up two adult entertainment districts inside the city limits where clubs could operate. The city had an ordinance before 2004 that was less restrictive than the one the board passed. However, when the Land Development Code was revamped, it was inadvertently left out, leaving Oxford wide open for an adult business to come and open anywhere in the city. Legally, a city canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bar adult businesses from opening but it can regulate them and zone areas where they are limited to open.

Ex-TSA official convicted in death JACKSON — A former official of the federal Transportation Security Administration in Mississippi appealed his murder conviction in the 2011 death of a co-worker. The appeal from Ruben Orlando Benitez is among dozens the state Court of Appeals will consider during its January-February term. The court will not hear oral arguments in the case. A decision will come later. Benitez was convicted in Harrison County in 2013 for the fatal stabbing of Stacey Wright, who was killed in her home. He was sentenced to life in prison. Prosecutor says Benitez told authorities that he killed Wright after the two argued about her wanting to end their affair.

Arrest made in murder-for-hire plot MCCOMB — Bond has been set at $100,000 for a Pike County man accused for soliciting an undercover lawman to kill his wife and stepdaughter. Pike County sheriff’s investigator Bruce Fairburn tells The Enterprise-Journal that Paul Jerry Dion, 55, is charged with two counts of conspiracy to commit murder. Dion is expected to make an initial court appearance this week. Pike County Sheriff Mark Shepherd said lawmen used vehicles and a state agency’s helicopter to follow Dion after learning he was leaving Pike County. They then alerted deputies in Marion County to stop and arrest Dion, which they did Thursday. Dion reportedly solicited an undercover operative posing as a hitman to kill Dion’s wife and his 22-year-old stepdaughter and dispose of their bodies, Fairburn said. Fairburn said the undercover lawman recorded phone calls and face-to-face meetings with Dion regarding the murder-for-hire plot.

Administrator search to continue STARKVILLE — Oktibbeha County’s search for a new county administrator is expected to last through February as supervisors use an informal process to hone a list of more than 30 applicants to five or so preferred candidates.

Interviews are expected to be held with the remaining candidates in February. The board has yet to set a date for its next meeting, but supervisors usually meet either the third Monday or Thursday of the month at the county courthouse. The county’s chief administrative position became vacant when former administrator Don Posey retired in December.

‘Octomom’ accused of not reporting income

Chicken plant closes after cockroach cleanup LIVINGSTON, Calif. — A California chicken farm that reopened over the weekend after it was shut because of a cockroach infestation says it’s “voluntarily and temporarily” suspending operations again. Foster Farms said Sunday it was closing the plant in Livingston for several days so it can properly implement new food safety measures. The company said in a statement it is “exercising vigilance” and dedicating additional time to ensure its preventative plan is

realized. Work had resumed Saturday after Foster Farms announced it met the demands of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’ by performing a thorough cleanup and treatment of the plant. The company says no chicken product was affected. The USDA said in a statement that it lifted its suspension and officials will monitor the plant once it reopens. The plant closed Jan. 8 when inspectors found the cockroaches on five separate occasions in various parts of the plant over four months. That closure came three months after inspectors threatened a shutdown because of salmonella problems at the Livingston plant and two Foster Farms sites in Fresno. Those facilities stayed open as the company agreed to improve safeguards. It issued no recalls of products and instead advised consumers to handle chicken properly and to cook it thoroughly.

The company said in its statement Sunday that maintenance workers will remain on the job during the voluntary closure. Other workers will be called back once full operations resume. The company also said it has temporarily shifted production to its other plants in California’s Central Valley. Foster Farms spokeswoman Karmina Zafiro declined to elaborate on the statement.

Ford’s new F-150, could change pickup market DETROIT — Some call it a game-changer. Some just shake their heads. Either way, Ford’s new aluminum-clad F-150 is such a radical departure from past pickup trucks that it dominated talk at the opening of the Detroit auto show. Ford Motor Co. unveiled the 2015 F-150, whose body is 97-percent aluminum, on

Monday. The lighter material shaves as much as 700 pounds off the 5,000-pound truck, a revolutionary change for a vehicle known for its heft and an industry still reliant on steel. No other vehicle on the market contains this much aluminum. “It’s a landmark moment for the full-size pickup truck,” said Jack Nerad, editorial director for Kelley Blue Book. The change is Ford’s response to small-business owners’ desire for a more fuel-efficient and nimble truck — and stricter government requirements on fuel economy. It sprang from a challenge by Ford’s CEO to move beyond the traditional design for a fullsize pickup. “You’re either moving ahead and you’re improving and you’re making it more valuable and more useful to the customer or you’re not,” Chief Executive Alan Mulally told The Associated Press in a recent interview.

LOS ANGELES — Nadya Suleman, who gained fame as “Octomom” after giving birth to eight babies, has been charged with welfare fraud after failing to report $30,000 in earnings while she collected public assistance, authorities said Monday. Suleman, whose real name is Natalie Denise Suleman, was ordered to appear in court on Friday, the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office said in a statement. She was not immediately taken into custody. Suleman was charged Jan. 6 with one count of aid by misrepresentation and two counts of perjury by false application. If convicted, she could face up to five years and eight months in jail. Since their birth, the single mother has tried to support her huge family in a variety of

ways, including endorsing birth control for pets, making a pornographic video, posing for semi-nude photo shoots and participating in celebrity boxing matches. Last year she spent several weeks in a rehabilitation center for what her former publicist said was anxiety, exhaustion and stress.

Mississippi death row inmate seeks new trial Associated Press

JACKSON — Mississippi death row inmate Caleb Corrothers argues he deserves a new trial because a Lafayette County judge refused to allow an expert to testify about the reliability of eyewitness identification. Corrothers was convicted in 2011 of two counts of capital murder and one count of aggravated assault. The Mississippi Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the case Tuesday. Prosecutors said Corrothers shot and killed Taylor Clark and his father, Frank Clark, over drugs and money. Tonya Clark, Taylor’s mother and Frank’s wife, was shot in the neck, but recovered. The Clarks’ older

son, Josh, witnessed the killings but was not injured. Defense attorneys tried to convince a jury that Corrothers grew up in poverty and without a father figure, setting him on a bad path. Prosecutors told the jury Corrothers should be held responsible for his choices. In briefs filed with the Supreme Court, Corrothers’ attorney, Alison Steiner, said the trial judge erred by allowing the jury to hear testimony from eyewitnesses but not permitting an expert for the defense to testify on eyewitness reliability. “The claim here is that the trial court erred in failing to also allow the jury to consider the expert psychological testimony of Dr. Jeffrey Neuschatz to assist it in evaluating the reli-

ability of those identifications. The expert testimony would offer the jury information that it could bring to bear in making its independent assessment on the reliability of the identifications,” Steiner said. Court records show Josh Clark picked Corrothers out of a photo lineup. Josh Clark and Tonya Clark identified Corrothers from the stand during trial, but records also show Tonya Clark was unable to pick Corrothers out of a pre-trial photo lineup. The attorney general’s office, in a court brief, argued the judge properly ruled that Neuschatz’s testimony was unreliable and irrelevant. The attorney general’s office said the credibility of a witness is a fact

After spill, water ban lifted in portion of West Virginia Associated Press

CHARLESTON, W.Va.— Safe tap water gushed from faucets and shower heads in West Virginia on Monday, a welcome sight and sound for a small fraction of the 300,000 people who have not been able to use running water since a chemical spill five days ago. It could still be days before everyone in the Charleston metropolitan area is cleared to use the water, though officials said the water in certain designated areas was safe to drink and wash with as long as people flushed out their systems. They cautioned that the water may still have a slight licoricetype odor to it, raising the anxieties of some who believed it was still contaminated. “I’m not going to drink it. I’ll shower in it and do dishes in it. But I won’t drink it. I don’t think it’s (the chemical) all out,” said Angela Stone, who started the 30-minute or so process of flushing her system out soon after the ban was lifted. Officials were grateful to give the green light Monday to about 6,000 to 10,000 customers. Gov. Earl Tomblin made the announcement at a news conference. “We are finally at a point where the ‘do not use’ order has been lifted,” Tomblin said. The water crisis shuttered schools, restaurants and day-care centers and truckloads of water had to be brought in from out of state. People were told to use the water only to flush their toilets. “Finally,” said Stone’s husband, James Parker. “I can finally take a shower, do dishes and cook some regular meals.”

“I’m not going to drink it. I’ll shower in it and do dishes in it. But I won’t drink it. I don’t think it’s (the chemical) all out.” Angela Stone West Virigina resident Parker uses cane and his wife, Angela Stone, is paralyzed on one side. “We have mobility issues so it was hard going out and getting free water,” he said. Officials were lifting the ban in a strict, methodical manner to help ensure the water system was not overwhelmed by excessive demand, which could cause more water quality and service problems. An online map detailing what areas were cleared showed a very small portion in blue and a vast area across nine counties still in the ‘do not use’ red. Customers were credited with 1,000 gallons of water, which was likely more than enough to flush out a system. The average residential customer uses about 3,300 gallons per month. Some people said they weren’t worried about the odor. “It’s not going to bother me as long as we know it’s clean,” said Peter Triplett, a state library commission worker whose home is near the first area allowed to use water. “It’s been rough going.” The first area cleared was downtown Charleston, the state capital and its largest city. Hospitals were flushing out systems there and schools Superintendent James Phares said he hoped the largest two school systems could reopen Tuesday. The water crisis start-

ed Thursday when a chemical used in coal processing leaked from a Freedom Industries plant into the nearby Elk River. Complaints came in to West Virginia American Water about the odor and officials discovered the source was the chemical 4-methylcyclohexane methanol that spilled out of a 40,000 gallon tank. In all, state officials believe about 7,500 gallons leaked from the tank. Some of the chemical was contained before flowing into the river and it’s not clear exactly how much entered the water supply. Federal authorities, including the U.S. Chemical Safety Board, have opened an investigation. Over the past few days, tests have showed that levels were consistently below a toxic threshold, and in some samples, there was no trace of the chemical at all. Some people put plastic bags around faucets so that they were reminded not to use the water. Others have left town to take a shower and find an open restaurant. Steve Graham, who works at Union Mission in downtown Charleston, said they handed out more than 150 pallets of bottled water packs since the weekend. Graham said the water ban slipped his mind Monday night.

to be determined by a jury. The Mississippi Psychological Association in a friend-ofthe-court brief questioned the use of the photo lineup for Josh Clark, who suffered a brain injury in a 2009 accident. A qualified cognitive psychologist could have helped the jury in assessing use of the lineup, according to the brief. The association said judges, lawyers and jurors are largely unaware of factors that can affect the credibility of eyewitnesses. The attorney general’s office said Corrothers offered nothing to show that the science of eyewitness identification analysis has been generally accepted by the courts. Prosecutors said Neuschatz has told the court he

had testified in only five cases. “While questions regarding the credibility of a victim’s identification are for the jury, questions regarding the admissibility of a victim’s identification are questions of the law — they are reserved for the court,” Special Assistant Attorney General Melanie Thomas wrote in the state’s brief. Thomas said Neuschatz was trying to invade the province of the trial judge when he offered an opinion that the lineup was suggestive after the judge had already found the lineup admissible. The Corrothers’ case is among dozens the Supreme Court will consider during its January-February term. A decision is expected later.

Southwest pilots grounded after landing at wrong airport Associated Press

DALLAS — The pilots of a Southwest Airlines flight that mistakenly landed at the wrong Missouri airport were grounded Monday, less than a day after they touched down at a small airfield that gave them only half as much room as normal to stop the jet. After passengers were let off the plane Sunday evening, they noticed the airliner had come dangerously close to the end of the runway, where it could have tumbled down a steep embankment if it had left the pavement. “As soon as we touched down, the pilot applied the brake very hard and very forcibly,” said passenger Scott Schieffer, a Dallas attorney who was among the 124 passengers aboard Southwest Flight 4013 from Chicago’s Midway Airport to the Branson airport. “I was wearing a seatbelt, but I was lurched forward because of the heavy pressure of the brake. You could smell burnt rubber, a very distinct smell of burnt rubber as we were stopping.” Branson Airport has a runway that is more than 7,100 feet long — a typical size for commercial traffic. The longest runway at Taney County Airport is only slightly more than 3,700 feet because it is designed for small private planes. After the jet stopped, a flight attendant welcomed passengers to Branson, Schieffer said. Then, after a few moments, “the pilot came on and said, ‘Ladies and gentlemen, I’m sorry to tell you we landed at the wrong airport.’” Southwest spokesman Brandy King said grounding the pilots involved is common while the airline and federal aviation officials investigate the mistake. The captain is in his

“I was wearing a seatbelt, but I was lurched forward because of the heavy pressure of the brake. You could smell burnt rubber, a very distinct smell of burnt rubber as we were stopping.” Scott Schieffer Southwest passenger 15th year flying for Southwest, King said. At first, Schieffer said, he considered the mistake only an inconvenience. But once he got off the plane, someone pointed to the edge of the runway, which he estimated as about 100 feet away. “It was surreal when I realized we could have been in real danger and instead of an inconvenience, it could have been a real tragedy,” he said. Mark Parent, manager of the smaller airport also known as M. Graham Clark Downtown Airport, described the distance as closer to 300 feet. He said the runway is built partly on landfill. At the end there is a “significant drop-off,” with a ravine beneath it, then busy U.S. 65 on the other side. He said a Boeing 737 had never landed at the small airfield, which opened in 1970 and normally handles light jets, turboprops and small aircraft for the charter, corporate and tourism markets. No one was around at the airport when the Southwest flight landed. Airport staffers had gone home about an hour earlier but were called back after the unexpected arrival, Parent said. Brad Hawkins, a spokesman for Dallasbased Southwest, said everyone aboard the jet was safe. He did not know why the plane went to the wrong airport.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Tony Molinaro said the agency was investigating, but he declined to elaborate. Jeff Bourk, executive director of Branson Airport, said the Southwest pilot was in communication with the airport tower, which cleared him to land around 6 p.m. The plane touched down a few moments later at the other airport. Skies were clear at the time, with the temperature in the 50s, Bourk said. Passengers were loaded on buses for the 7-mile trip to Branson. Southwest brought in another plane for passengers flying on to Love Fiend in Dallas. That flight departed around 10 p.m., Bourke said. Hawkins said the aircraft involved in the mistaken landing should be able to take off from the smaller runway, though it was not clear when that would occur. The minimum runway length needed to take off varies depending on a plane’s weight, the temperature and other factors. Based on Boeing documents, a lightly loaded 737-700 can take off from a runway about the length of the M. Graham Clark airport. Parent said he had no doubts that the plane would be able to take off safely.

The Commerce Department is due to report retail sales figures for December today. Recent data from ShopperTrack suggest that a last-minute shopping surge helped sales in November and December wrap up better than expected, but stores had to discount heavily to lure in shoppers.

Pricier imports? Economists have forecast an uptick in the price paid by U.S. importers last month. Import prices fell in October and November as oil prices declined. Before that, the Labor Department’s import price index had recorded several small monthly increases. The government reports December import price data today.

Girlfriend hasn’t gotten over her ex WIZARD OF ID





Dear Annie: I have been in a committed relationship for a year. Admittedly, my girlfriend and I (we are lesbians) rushed into things. We moved in together quickly when she broke up with her girlfriend of five years. After the first month, “Dennie” cheated on me with her ex. I wrote it off, but a few months later, she cheated again. I have generalized anxiety disorder and started to associate going to work with Dennie’s cheating, which made my work life miserable. Shortly after all of this happened, I emotionally cheated with an ex of my own. I admitted this to Dennie. She was angry and sad, but I said she should give me a second chance because I’d already given her two. I deleted my ex’s phone number and blocked her in all forms of communication. I recently found out that Dennie visited her ex when she was briefly in the hospital. It wasn’t cheating, but we had agreed that one of the conditions of continuing our relationship is that all contact with the exes must be stopped. One month later, Dennie cheated on me again with this same girl -- in our home. It’s hard for me to look at Dennie the same way. My head keeps telling me to let her go, but my heart isn’t ready. I’ve asked Dennie to go with me for counseling,

Annie’s Mailbox but she says she wants us to work it out on our own. She says she isn’t the only one at fault. We’ve both made mistakes, but the difference is that I’ve learned from mine. I can’t continue unless we both can be faithful. What should I do? -- Cheated On Again Dear Cheated On: Dennie is not yet over her ex, and you seem well aware of it. You were her rebound. You desperately want Dennie to be someone she is not, and it isn’t working out. Unless you want your heart broken over and over, please let her go. Even if she doesn’t return to her ex, her next relationship might not be with you. If you can accept this outcome, you can move forward. Dear Annie: Growing up, I thought if I had siblings, I would have learned how to get along with others my own age. But now that I have reached the ripe old age of 70, I am grateful to have been an only child. Here’s why: There was enough money to send me to college. I have read countless letters in your column

complaining about siblings and have listened to the complaints of my friends about theirs. I knew it was totally on me to make decisions about my parents’ health as they became unable to do so, with no arguments from siblings. So for your readers out there who are thinking of stopping after one child, I say good idea. -- Only Child in Massachusetts Dear Child: We are glad you have embraced your status. But for every person who is happy to be an only child, you will find others who could not imagine their lives without their loving siblings. Granted, people complain about their relatives, and when it comes to advice columns, you are more likely to read about problems. We know that siblings can drive you crazy -- so can spouses and parents. But a good relationship with a brother or sister can be a source of comfort throughout life.

Coming Up In The Daily Corinthian The Daily Corinthian kicks off a new year of exciting magazines with Crossroads Magazine Lifestyles Plus coming Feb. 1.

Grandmother deserves to know about secret great-granddaughter DEAR ABBY: My family has been keeping a secret from my grandmother. I have a 17-monthold daughter that she doesn’t know exists. I wanted to tell my grandma from the start about her great-granddaughter (her first), but I am afraid to. My family thinks that telling her will cause too much stress on her. NO one in the family takes my feelings into consideration. I think my grandmother should know she’s a great-grandma. The problem is, I don’t know how to tell her. She’s 90 years old. I’m afraid if I say something now, it really MIGHT be too stressful for her. Also, I’m afraid that if I reveal this secret, it will start a family feud. I want a relationship with my grandma like I used to have. I cry every time I talk to her on the phone because I have to lie to her about my day-to-day life and why I can’t come to see her. I am really starting to resent my family. Please help. -- SECRET MOMMY IN NEVADA DEAR SECRET MOMMY: Your grandmother wasn’t born yesterday; she’s 90. I’m sure that in her decades of living she has seen plenty of life. While she will probably be shocked that she was kept in the dark this long, I agree she should know the truth. She should also know that you love her, which is why you are telling her the news.

She may or may not want to see her great-grandchild, but the choice should be hers. D E A R Abigail ABBY: I’m Van Buren in my 70s, married for 50 years. Dear Abby I worked outside the home for many years and earned retirement benefits. There have been many ups and downs in my life, for me personally as well as for members of my family. Of course, there have been good times, too. I feel blessed. All my life I have been the “goto girl” for my family as a daughter, sister, wife, mother and aunt for help or advice. I love them, but I’m tired. How do I retire my “crown” -- which has been overwhelming at times -- without hurting or alienating anyone? There seem to be so many problems and only one of me. Many times I have felt stretched too thin, but now my health and energy are no longer what they once were. I’m reasonably healthy, but I’m very tired. I value my Judeo/Christian belief of “doing unto others.” Am I being selfish? -- GO-TO GIRL IN NEW MEXICO DEAR GO-TO GIRL: Your mind

and body are trying to tell you something important. I hope you will pay attention before your health suffers because it could if you don’t start drawing the line. There is nothing selfish or wrong about saying: “I love you, but I can’t help you. I can’t because I’m at a point in my life where I can’t handle stress like I used to.” And if the person doesn’t get it, you should repeat it. DEAR ABBY: I have a dear friend who I have been friends with for years. However, there is one thing I can’t stand about her. It’s her vulgar language. Every sentence that comes out of her mouth includes the Fword. She’s not a soft-spoken individual, so others can hear her. It embarrasses me and makes me not want to be around her in public. How can I tell her she embarrasses me when she talks that way? -- SOFT-SPOKEN FRIEND DEAR FRIEND: Tell her in exactly the way you told me. It is kind, helpful and the truth. And please don’t feel bad about doing so because you’ll be doing your friend a favor. (Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.)

Horoscopes ARIES (March 21-April 19). Wherever you go today, send your imagination first. It is by wondering and making predictions that you get into the truly interesting bits of life that others haven’t dared to find out about. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You always respond well to the qualities of Venus, your ruling planet, and today holds more Venusian delights than usual. You can expect hours filled with pleasure, romance and creativity. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Of course you have to think of yourself and your own needs, or you won’t have anything to give others. This is so simple, and yet it’s very difficult for you these days when you see so much you can do to help others. CANCER (June 22-July 22). When the work is flowing well, don’t interrupt. Phone calls, distractions, even lunch can negatively impact the momentum you have going on this afternoon. Ride out the productive wave to

its natural end. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Letting go of the thing that’s bothering you could be a long, drawn-out process. Or you could just let it go. Once you do, what was hidden will be revealed, and what was lost will be found. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll be in a group of strangers. You might be surprised by who is worth getting to know. In order to figure out whether you like someone or not, you’ll have to let your defenses down. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Maybe those people who say no frequently have a good reason for doing so. Better to model them than overextend yourself. Beware: What seems like a passing suggestion may take hours to fulfill. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll get an example of how chemistry influences a person’s thought processes. Whether the chemical changes are caused by love, hormones or something

else, they will affect the afflicted person’s sense of reason. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). True, a new possession would distract you from what’s not working. Just remember that everything new becomes old with time. Your habit of fixing things will serve you well. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There is no reason to back off of your business, even though the circumstances will be unfamiliar. Ask questions that will help you pinpoint what the problem is. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The psychic vibrations are stronger in you now than they have been in a while. Make a prediction and write it down so you can later check the accuracy of your intuition. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You have the heart of a poet, and that’s what allows you to do something magical this evening. You’ll talk about what is true in an eloquent way and melt someone’s heart.

Grantham leaves Georgia for Louisville The Associated Press

ATLANTA — Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham has accepted a similar position on Bobby Petrino’s staff at Louisville. Georgia coach Mark Richt confirmed Sunday night that Grantham had accepted an offer from the Cardinals. Grantham was Georgia’s defensive coordinator for four years. Grantham, who was given the additional title of associate head coach in 2012, was earning $850,000 per year at Georgia. ESPN reported Grantham will earn $1 million per year in his five-year deal at Louisville. Grantham produced mixed results at Georgia. In 2011, the Bulldogs ranked fifth in the nation in total defense. His 2012 defense struggled at times despite having seven players selected in the 2013 NFL draft. The Bulldogs then ranked eighth in the Southeastern Conference in total defense and 78th in the nation in scoring defense in 2013. They finished 8-5 while giving up 29 points per game. The signature play of the 2013 season for Georgia and its defense came in the final minute of the Bulldogs’ 43-38 loss to Auburn. Nick Marshall’s 73-yard pass was deflected by Georgia defensive back Josh Harvey-Clemons and then caught by Ricardo Louis for the go-ahead touchdown with 25 seconds remaining. Richt said he already has heard from possible candidates to replace Grantham. “We are appreciative of all the contributions Todd has made to our program and wish him nothing but the best,” Richt said. “But at the same time the opportunity to work at Georgia is extremely attractive and there already is, and will be, interest from some very, very outstanding coaches. “We have a lot of defensive players coming back, as well as some outstanding defensive recruits, and there’s going to be plenty of interest in coaching them. I’m excited about the prospects of a great defensive coordinator being on board as quickly as possible.” Georgia expects to return 10 starters on defense. Grantham is the second defensive assistant to leave Richt’s staff. Secondary coach Scott Lakatos resigned on Thursday, citing undisclosed personal reasons.

Titans hire Whisenhunt The Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Tennessee Titans have wrapped up their coaching search by hiring San Diego offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt as their new head coach and 17th in franchise history. Titans president and CEO Tommy Smith called the hiring a big day in announcing the hiring Monday. “Ken is a well-respected coach in this league and I am looking forward to seeing his vision become reality for this team,” Smith said in a statement. “He has a history of building successful offenses and took Arizona to a Super Bowl as a head coach. We all share a common goal for this team and that is to build a consistent winner.” Whisenhunt, 51, will be introduced at a news conference Tuesday. The Titans flew to San Diego on Friday and interviewed

Whisenhunt, who started his coaching career in Nashville at Vanderbilt. He was the fourth person interviewed by the Titans, who fired Mike Munchak on Jan. 4. But the Titans had competition for Whisenhunt, who also interviewed with Detroit and Cleveland last week. The Tennessean reported the Titans interviewed Cincinnati defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer for a second time Monday in Houston before hiring Whisenhunt. Smith thanked general manager Ruston Webster for overseeing only the second coaching search by this franchise since moving to Tennessee in 1997. Webster said Whisenhunt’s intelligence, track record with quality offenses and success as a head coach stand out to him most. “I really enjoyed our meeting on Friday night in San Diego, and we share similar philosophies about the game,”

Webster said. “Additionally, we have several mutual colleagues that have spoken highly to me about Ken both as a coach and as a person. I am excited about Ken joining us and the future of the Titans.” Whisenhunt spent six years coaching Arizona and took the Cardinals to their lone Super Bowl in 2009. He was fired Dec. 31, 2012, with a record of 45-51 in the regular season and 4-2 in the playoffs. He interviewed with Cleveland twice last year before being hired as offensive coordinator in San Diego where he helped Philip Rivers and the Chargers to the playoffs. Chargers rookie head coach Mike McCoy said earlier Monday before the Titans hired Whisenhunt that he didn’t want to lose his coordinator but realized he might lose him after only a year. “Ken has done an outstanding job here this year,” McCoy

said. “He is a big reason of why we got as far as we did, not only on the field, but behind the scenes with things that he did to help me.” Tight end Antonio Gates said Whisenhunt did a phenomenal job implementing a new offense in San Diego that put them in the best position possible. “It was a privilege and a pleasure to be around a guy of that stature with the experience and winning Super Bowls, and then helping me grow as a player,” Gates said. Whisenhunt, a native of Augusta, Ga., played tight end at Georgia Tech and played 74 games in nine NFL seasons with Atlanta, Washington and the Jets. He started coaching in Nashville as an assistant at Vanderbilt and also was offensive coordinator for Pittsburgh between 2004 and 2006. He also has coached at Baltimore, the Jets and Cleveland.

No. 7 Florida rules out Prather again The Associated Press

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Casey Prather’s bruised right knee is improving — just not quickly enough to play Tuesday night. No. 7 Florida ruled out its leading scorer Monday, saying Prather won’t play against Georgia. The senior forward is still dealing with pain and swelling, and coach Billy Donovan has no timetable for his return.

“He still has issues,” Donovan said. “He’s getting better. He’s progressing. When he’ll be available to play, I don’t know.” Prather, who is averaging 17 points a game this season and leads the Southeastern Conference in shooting at 62.4 percent, sat out Saturday’s 84-82 overtime victory at Arkansas. Dorian FinneySmith started in his place and finished with 22 points and

15 rebounds. Finney-Smith likely will replace Prather in the starting lineup again. “It just means that other people need to step up,” guard Scottie Wilbekin said. “I know you guys have heard coach (Donovan) say all he needs is five guys to go out there, and we have the same mindset as a team. I wish he was going to be out there playing with us, but if he’s

not, then we’ve just got to go out with what we’ve got. And I’m confident that we can win without him.” The Gators (13-2, 2-0 SEC) have won 24 in a row at home, tying the school record set between March 2006 and November 2007. They have won 11 straight at home against the Bulldogs (8-6, 2-0). Please see PRATHER | 13

Omaha! Manning gives city game shout-outs The Associated Press

OMAHA, Neb. — Peyton Manning can’t stop shouting about Nebraska’s largest city. The Denver Broncos quarterback used the word “Omaha” loudly and often during Sunday’s playoff victory over the San Diego Chargers. According to an video montage, Manning barked “Omaha” before the ball was snapped 44 times

during the game. The reason for the word choice, if there is one, is known only to Manning and the Broncos. But it provided some unexpected publicity for the city of 427,000, perhaps best known as the home of both billionaire Warren Buffett and the Fortune 500 insurance company Mutual of Omaha (sponsor of the old

TV show “Wild Kingdom”). “I think it shows Peyton Manning really loves Omaha,” Mayor Jean Stothert said Monday. “I’ll personally take him on a tour. He has an official invitation now.” Omaha was a trending topic on Twitter during the game, and the Greater Omaha Convention and Visitors Bureau jumped aboard, tweeting: “We certainly ap-

preciate all the love from Peyton Manning :)” Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce President and CEO David Brown said he was watching the game, and he wondered how his agency could capitalize. Brown said he wants to explore the possibility of hiring Manning, one of the sporting Please see MANNING | 13

A-Rod sues MLB, union to overturn season-long ban The Associated Press

NEW YORK— Alex Rodriguez sued Major League Baseball and its players’ union Monday, seeking to overturn a season-long suspension imposed by an arbitrator who ruled there was “clear and convincing evidence” the New York Yankees star used three banned substances and twice tried to obstruct the sport’s drug investigation. As part of the complaint filed in federal court in Manhattan, Rodriguez’s lawyers made public Saturday’s 34page decision by arbitrator Fredric Horowitz, who shortened a penalty originally set at 211 games last August by baseball Commissioner Bud Selig for violations of the sport’s drug agreement and labor contract. Horowitz, a 65-yearold making his second decision as baseball’s independent arbitrator, trimmed the discipline to 162 games, plus all postseason games in 2014. “While this length of suspension may be unprecedented for a MLB player, so is the misconduct he committed,” Horowitz wrote. Horowitz concluded Rodriguez used testosterone, human growth hormone and Insulinlike growth factor-1 in 2010, 2011 and 2012 in violation of baseball’s Joint Drug Agreement. He relied on evidence provided by the founder of the now-closed Biogenesis of America antiaging clinic in Florida. “Direct evidence of those violations was supplied by the testimony of Anthony Bosch and corroborated with excerpts from Bosch’s personal composition notebooks, BBMs (Blackberry messages) exchanged between Bosch and Rodriguez, and reasonable inferences drawn from the entire record of evidence,” Horowitz wrote. “The testimony was direct, credible and squarely corroborated by excerpts from several of the hundreds of pages of his composition notebooks.” While the original notebooks were stolen, Horowitz allowed copies into evidence. Rodriguez’s suit accused the Major League Baseball Players Association of “bad faith,” said its representation during the hearing was “perfunctory at best” and accused it of failing to attack a civil suit filed by MLB in Florida state court as part of its Biogenesis investigation. His lawyers criticized Michael Weiner, the union head who died from a brain tumor in November, for saying last summer he recommended Rodriguez set-

tle for a lesser penalty if MLB were to offer an acceptable length. “His claim is completely without merit, and we will aggressively defend ourselves and our members from these baseless charges,” new union head Tony Clark said in a statement. “The players’ association has vigorously defended Mr. Rodriguez’s rights throughout the Biogenesis investigation, and indeed throughout his career. Mr. Rodriguez’s allegation that the association has failed to fairly represent him is outrageous, and his gratuitous attacks on our former executive director, Michael Weiner, are inexcusable.” The suit also claimed the MLB engaged in “ethically challenged behavior” and was the source of media leaks in violation of baseball’s confidentiality rules. Rodriguez’s lawyers said Horowitz acted “with evident partiality” and “refused to entertain evidence that was pertinent and material.” They faulted Horowitz for denying Rodriguez’s request to have a different arbitrator hear the case, for not ordering Selig to testify and for allowing Bosch to claim Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination in refusing to answer questions during cross-examination. They also said Horowitz let the league introduce “unauthenticated documents and hearsay evidence ... obtained by theft, coercion or payment,” wouldn’t allow them to examine Blackberry devices introduced by MLB and was fearful he would be fired if he didn’t side with management. Rodriguez asked the court to throw out Horowitz’s decision and find the league violated its agreements with the union and that the union breached its duty to represent him. The case was assigned to U.S. District Judge Edgardo Ramos. Supreme Court decisions have set narrow grounds for judges to vacate arbitration decisions, instances such as corruption or not following the rules agreed to by the parties. The three-time AL MVP admitted five years ago he used performance-enhancing substances while with Texas from 2001-03, but the third baseman has denied using them since. MLB’s Biogenesis investigation was sparked after the publication of documents last January by Miami New Times. Bosch agreed in June to cooperate with MLB and testified during the hearing, which ran from September until November.


Florida also has won seven straight and 12 of 13, the lone loss a buzzer-beater at then-No. 12 UConn in early December. The 6-foot-6 Prather has been a big reason for the team’s success. After averaging just 6.2 points a game last season, Prather has found a role as a slashing player who gets easy baskets in transition and gets to the free throw line on a

regular basis. He also is averaging 5.5 rebounds and 2.1 assists in nearly 30 minutes a game. And he’s one of the team’s better defenders. “For any player, it would be frustrating, but especially for him,” guard DeVon Walker said. “He’s had like an amazing season. He understands that it’s part of the process; you’re going to get hurt sometimes. But he’ll be back soon enough, so it’s good.”

UConn women end Baylor home streak The Associated Press

WACO, Texas — Connecticut coach Geno Auriemma was as anxious as anyone to see how his topranked Huskies would handle a close game. They responded in another streak-busting performance. Breanna Stewart made a short baseline jumper with 10½ minutes left, starting a game-ending 16-6 run after No. 7 Baylor had closed within one point, and the Huskies went on to a 66-55 victory Monday night to snap the Lady Bears’ national-best 69-game home winning streak. “There were certain possessions that we had to win those possessions, and we did,” Auriemma said. “Even though we were up the whole time, it never seemed liked it was going to get away from them. ... We were timely.” Stewart had 18 points

and 11 rebounds in a matchup of the last two national champions. Defending champ UConn (18-0) won its closest game this season, having beaten their first five ranked opponents by an average margin of 22 points, with the closest being 17 points. “I think it builds our confidence a lot. It was a tough game, and we really had to grind it out at times, and you want to be able to respond well when things aren’t going your way, and we did that,” said Bria Hartley, who finished with 17 points. “I think that’s a step in the right direction for us.” Baylor (14-2) hadn’t lost at home since a 7054 defeat to Texas in its regular-season home finale March 7, 2010. Senior starters Odyssey Sims, the national scoring leader, and Makenzie Robertson, the daughter

of coach Kim Mulkey, had never lost a game in the Ferrell Center. The Huskies have two of the five longest home winning streaks in women’s basketball, their record of 99 snapped two years ago and an earlier 69-game streak. They have ended the other three, previously ending Stanford’s 82game streak last season and winning at Tennessee after the Lady Volunteers had been the first team to win 69 straight at home 18 years ago. Moriah Jefferson had 13 points and Stefanie Dolson 10 for UConn, which has won 24 in a row overall. That matches the sixth-longest winning streak in school history, and is their second 24-game winning streak since their record 90 in a row ended in December 2010. Sims, who entered the contest with 31.8 points

per game, finished with 20 points on only 4-of-25 shooting. She made all 10 of her free throws, none after halftime. She didn’t score for the final 10:53 of the game. “I don’t think they’re worried about (their first home loss). I just think they’re competitors, and you hate losing. It’s not about a streak. You’ll relive the game,” Mulkey said of the two senior starters. “Odyssey will relive the game and think, ‘Wow, if I would have given us a little bit more, we might have won.’ Or Makenzie thinks, if I would have made a couple more free throws. That’s what competitors do. But they certainly are not worried about a streak.” Freshman Nina Davis had 11 points and 17 rebounds for Baylor. Robertson had 10 points including three 3-pointers.

ber of commerce has worked hard to woo corporations to locate to “the Big O,” as locals call it. Omaha is home to five Fortune 500 companies, including Union Pacific Railroad, and sells itself on, among other things, a reasonable cost of living and dependable workforce. A chamber-commissioned study last year found that 100 million people had been exposed to the “Omaha message” in the past decade and that the city is generally viewed positively,” Brown said. “But when people are asked why they feel that way, they can’t bring it to a single message,” he said. Quarterback Tom Brady of the New England Patriots has been

known to say “Omaha” during games and so has Peyton’s brother, New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning. “Sally,” ‘‘Alpha,” and “Kentucky” are among the many words that amount to gibberish to the typical fan, and sometimes they truly mean nothing. But the words often are a signal to the rest of the offense to change a play or scheme — and defenses sometimes try to crack the code. It was apparent that the Chargers associated “Omaha” with Manning’s snap count on Sunday because he lured five different San Diego players to jump offside, an unusually high number of penalties for the same infraction. For the city of Omaha,

the value of Manning’s shout-outs is impossible to calculate, Parrott said. Parrott noted, however, that air time for a 30-second Super Bowl ad is $4 million this year. If Manning leads the Broncos to the Super Bowl and yells “Omaha” as many times as he did Sunday, well, that’s lots of free exposure. “Commercials cost money to make, and you have to come up with the idea and hire a production company to make it. It could cost $4 million just for the production, and we get it for free,” Parrott said. “Everybody in Omaha really needs to root for Peyton to take down Tom Brady and the Patriots so we can hear ‘Omaha’ in the Super Bowl.”


world’s top pitchmen, to shoot a promotional ad for Omaha. “We’d be foolish not to,” Brown said, adding that he realizes Manning’s fee probably would be prohibitive. If anything, Omaha once conjured an image of a cow town on the banks of the Missouri River. But Doug Parrott, executive vice president for the Nebraska-based Bailey Lauerman public relations and advertising firm, said that has changed over the years because of the prominence of Buffett and national media coverage of events such as the College World Series and U.S. Olympic Swim Trials. Brown said the cham-
