Community Center McDonald gives to host MLK banquet speech on unity BY KIMBERLY SHELTON

In honor of the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., The Easom Community Center Foundation will hold its annual MLK Unity Celebration banquet. The event will take place at the community center, located at 700 South Crater Street on Saturday at 6:00 p.m. Entertainment will be provided by Kingdom Christian

Center International and the youth of Project Attention. Tickets are $20 and may be purchased from any board member of Minority Volunteers or at Project Attention. “We’re trying to keep the dream alive and instill in our youth a passion for African American history and heritage,” said Mary Dilworth. Dr. King is remembered as a remarkable orator, an advocate

of civil rights, and a devoted pastor. He received the Nobel Peace Prize on Oct. 14, 1964, and was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Honor and the Congressional Gold medal. His birthday, a federal holiday, is marked and celebrated on the third Monday in January. (For more information, call (662) 603-4229 or (662) 2875200.)


Like minds came together as individuals united over a common goal – the goal of bridging the gap which divides and eradicating racism within the community. In his presentation for Mission Mississippi, Sam McDonald spoke about his time in Malawi, Africa. He compared Malawi to

Mississippi calling it the “Mississippi of Africa”. “No one knows it’s there, but they are very friendly,” said McDonald. “The people are phenomenally welcoming.” In a land of poverty where witchcraft, hatred and Colonial racism flourish, McDonald discovered we are all united in diversity.

Blueprint Mississippi Business, community leaders gather BY ZACK STEEN

More than 90 Corinth area business and community leaders gathered on Thursday as the Mississippi Economic Council presented their 2014 road show, “Blueprint Mississippi Pathway to Progress”. The MEC has been the voice of Mississippi business since 1949 and deals with broad issues that relate to businesses through advocacy, research, resources and leadership. The local civic group chapters of Rotary, Kiwanis and Civilians hosted MEC’s 8th stop on the 19-city tour at Shiloh Ridge Athletic Club. Following the opening remarks by Rotary president Rob Skelton, MEC President and CEO Blake Wilson took the mic. “People keep asking, are you still talking about blueprint ... yes we are,” said Wilson. “Blueprint Mississippi is a long term program and we have made some huge improvements since releasing it in 2004.” MEC’s Blueprint Mississippi program provides a road map in developing improved incentives for existing businesses, streamlining workforce development and creating a more competitive business climate. MEC is funded by member dues.

“The blueprint program has brought an extraordinary focus to health care as an economic driver and has been a major help with educational and health care reforms,” Wilson said. The main focus of the program pointed to the abundance of opportunities the state currently has. “Our business climate is better than ever,” said Wilson. “Looking at what we have done so far, we’re doing pretty good here in Mississippi.” Wilson shared some key numbers with the audience. The Magnolia State is ranked 9th as the top states for successful businesses, ranked 2nd for competitive business utility costs and is in the top five for overall cost of doing business. “Mississippi may be ranked low in overall education, but our accountability model is rated A+ and is ranked in the top five in the nation,” he said. “Our workforce training is unmatched, as well.” Mississippi is ranked third for competitive labor costs. From on-the-job training to standard and customized shortterm training to college courses developed with and for certain industries, Mississippi has ensured employees are prepared

“New this year to blueprint, is the Mississippi Tech Master Scholars where we encourage students to pursue tech-prep course of study,” said Wilison. “It’s still in pilot this year, but in 2015 it will be available to every county in the state.” Wilson shared another good piece of news with the crowd. “MEC’s Leadership Mississippi group travels to four dif-

ferent communities each year,” he said. “In 2014, we’re coming to Corinth.” The tour will bring 53 state and regional leaders into Corinth for a multiple day conference. The team will hold classes and provide information to the business owners and community leaders. (For more information, visit

Local gardeners are getting a chance to gain horticultural expertise courtesy of the Mississippi State Extension Service. Ten weeks of the Master Gardener program is slated to begin Feb. 11 at the Alcorn County Extension Office for those aiming to become certified. “In order to be a Master Gardener, individuals are required attend every class and pass a test,” said Patrick Poindexter, County Director with the Mississippi State Extension Service. Potential Master Gardeners are also required to return 40 hours of community service to the extension office in exchange for the 40 hours of educational training.

The class will meet each Tuesday and Thursday from 1-5 p.m. at the extension office. Classes will be done through interactive video. The program will conclude with a test on March 18. “By doing interactive video it allows us to take advantage of 10 different speakers who would be hard to get together otherwise,” said Poindexter. Cost of the training is $85 and is due at the first class meeting. Deadline to sign up for the course is Jan. 31. Most certified Master Gardeners serve five to seven years. The Master Gardener approach helps the local extension office reach a broader audience than is possible with only one or two agents. It also provides the local Please see GARDENER | 2A

COLUMBUS — There has been a ban on billboards in the city of Columbus since 2000 even though there are some along U.S. Highway 45. Now, the city is considering lifting the ban to allow billboard advertising in the city limits and charge advertisers fees to generate more revenue. The Commercial Dispatch reports that the ban enacted in 2000 prohibited billboards from that point forward in the city limits. Billboards already in place at that time were allowed to remain. The city’s chief operations officer, David Armstrong, said discussions have been preliminary. He said research on sizes that other area municipalities allow has been done. Meridian and Starkville each limit the height signs can be to 45 feet, while Tupelo allows up to 35-foot boards. Billboards in Tupelo can

be 400 square feet in size and 600 square feet in Meridian, but only 288 square feet per sign is allowed in Starkville. Signs must be at least 500 feet apart in Tupelo and Meridian. In Starkville, there must be at least 2,640 feet between billboards. Armstrong will use that information to draft a proposed ordinance. A committee was formed last month to look at the billboard ordinance. Councilman Bill Gavin has proposed keeping the ban in some areas of the city. “In the end, there’re pros and cons in lifting it and not lifting it. I think a lot of it is going to be where those signs go. We certainly don’t want to put them in residential areas or downtown. “I don’t really want to put any more down (Highway) 45. I’m trying to get away from that,” Gavin said.

Blood donations McNairy Book club kicks off new year critically needed As the community blood provider, United Blood Services is making a critical appeal for all blood types. High patient usage and a lack of blood donations have caused an on-going urgent and critical need for blood. This year’s severe flu outbreak is having a negative effect on blood donations, keeping the local blood supply critically low. Local hospitals are experiencing a high increase in blood usage and United Blood Services is down to a less than one day supply to service all local hospitals. If you are healthy, your blood donation is needed immediately. AB negative and AB positive donors are also need-

ed for plasma donations. United Blood Services’ center is located at 4326 South Eason Blvd, Tupelo - Monday & Wednesday 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.; Tuesday & Thursday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Friday & Saturday 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. Call 662-842-8871 ext. 3009 or visit http://www. for more information about qualifying to donate blood, or to schedule an appointment.

JESUS WILL NOT SIT ON AN EARTHLY THRONE As I closed last week’s column I promised to show you a passage that teaches that Jesus (by His own law) cannot sit upon the earthly throne of David. That passage is found in Jeremiah 22:28-30, where the Lord places a curse upon a wicked king named Coniah. Coniah was next to the last king of Judah reigning at Jerusalem 3 months and 10 days around 600 B.C. (II Chronicles 36:9) His given name was Jehoiachin, but he was called Coniah 3 times and Jeconiah 7 times. His father (Jehoiakim) hated the Word of God so much he cut up and burned the prophecies of Jeremiah (36:32). Sadly, Coniah followed in the steps of his father and “did that which was evil in the sight of Jehovah according to all that his father had done” (II Kings 24:9). As part of his punishment, the Lord said that not only would Coniah not “prosper in his days” as king, but “none of his descendants shall prosper, sitting on the throne of David and ruling anymore in Judah” (Jeremiah 22:30). The genealogy of Matthew (1:11-12) clearly brings Jesus into the world through the fleshly lineage of Coniah (Jeconiah). Summarizing these facts, Foy E. Wallace, Jr. writes: “Now since Christ is the seed of Coniah, and no man of his seed can sit on David’s throne and rule any more in Judah, it follows that Jesus Christ cannot occupy the throne of David on earth. But the prophets said that Jesus Christ the son of David, should occupy David’s throne. Since it cannot be done on the earth, it follows that Jesus Christ would occupy David’s throne not on earth, but in heaven. And that is exactly what Peter affirms in Acts 2:30.11 Let no one deceive you--the kingdom of Jesus Christ came in the first century and He reigns from His throne in heaven right now. CLEAR CREEK CHURCH OF CHRIST Minister: Duane Ellis email:


His eight years in Africa reinforced his belief that racism is not exclusive to the United States or the American South. “Ethnic and racial discord transcend geography and even skin-tone,” said the speaker. Bobby Capps, executive director of Crosswind Ministries reminded the audience we are all “learners” in life. He challenged the community to sojourn not

the desire of the committee and regular attendees that more people come and enjoy the meetings. Monthly meetings include an informal group discussion of the month’s selected book led by a club volunteer. The Book Club is a social group and involves no fees, dues or officers. Light refreshments are often served. “This year, we hope to enhance some of our meetings by showing movie versions of books when time and space at the Latta Building is available. We’re also excited that Horse People author Cary Holladay has agreed to join us for the discussion of her book in April. Plus we’re making plans for a field trip

to Carnton Plantation in Franklin, the setting of our September selection Widow of the South by Robert Hicks,” said Robinson. The AiM Book Club reading list has been shared with the Jack McConnico Library in Selmer and the Irving Meek Jr. Library in Adamsville; many of the titles will be available for checkout. Plus, a new service now offered by both libraries is READS (Regional EBook and Audiobook Download System) that allows library card holders to download popular digital books to their ereaders/smart phones/ computers/tablets for a period of two weeks free of charge.

Today in history

Lawmakers to restore Voting Rights Act The Associated Press

Today is Friday, Jan. 17, the 17th day of 2014. There are 348 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Jan. 17, 1994, the 6.7 magnitude Northridge earthquake struck Southern California, killing at least 60 people, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

On this date: In 1893 Hawaii’s monarchy was overthrown as a group of businessmen and sugar planters forced Queen Lili’uokalani to abdicate. In 1917, the United States paid Denmark $25 million for the Virgin Islands. In 1929, the cartoon character Popeye the Sailor made his debut in the “Thimble Theatre” comic strip. In 1945, Soviet and Polish forces liberated Warsaw during World War II; Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg, credited with saving tens of thousands of Jews, disappeared in Hungary while in Soviet custody. In 1950, the Great Brink’s Robbery took place as seven masked men held up a Brink’s garage in Boston, stealing $1.2 million in cash and $1.5 million in checks and money orders. In 1961, President Dwight D. Eisenhower delivered his farewell address in which he warned against “the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex.” In 1984, the U.S. Supreme Court, in Sony Corp. of America v. Universal City Studios, Inc., ruled 5-4 that the use of home video cassette recorders to tape television programs for private viewing did not violate federal copyright laws. In 1989, five children were shot to death at the Cleveland Elementary School in Stockton, Calif., by a drifter, Patrick Purdy, who then killed himself.

WASHINGTON — Four states — Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas — would again have to get approval from the Justice Department before making any changes in the way they hold elections under a bipartisan bill introduced Thursday to restore parts of the Voting Rights Act that the Supreme Court struck down as unconstitutional. Supporters said the bill would modernize and improve the 1965 civil rights legislation by updating a formula used to require certain states with a history of discrimination to get federal approval before changing election laws and practices. The Supreme Court ruled last June that the existing formula that had become the government’s primary tool in enforcing the law relied on four-decade-old data that didn’t reflect racial progress and other changes in society. “What we were facing was both a constitutional as well as a political chal-

lenge,” said Rep. James Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., who helped write the bill along with Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy, D-Vt. “I think we have threaded that needle.” The new bill redraws from scratch the formula used to determine which states are required to seek federal approval before changing their voting practices. It requires clearance only from states where there have been at least five Voting Rights Acts violations — with at least one committed by the state itself. Supporters said only Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas fall into that category. After 10 years, states could seek a “bailout” from the clearance requirement. Counties and municipalities would be covered in the new formula if found to have committed three Voting Rights Act violations in the most recent 15 years. One violation would suffice if the violation occurred in an area with a “persistent

and extremely low minority voter turnout.” The provision knocked down by the Supreme Court required federal clearance by the states of Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas and Virginia as well certain counties in California, Florida, New York, North Carolina and South Dakota, and some local jurisdictions in Michigan. Lawmakers said they introduced the bill to coincide with Monday’s holiday commemorating Martin Luther King Jr.’s birth. They were joined by Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., who had been a leader in the civil rights movement. “It is amazing to me, almost unreal, that we were able to come together so quickly,” Lewis said. Leahy will take the lead on the bill in the Senate. The legislation, he said, would ensure that any state that committed continued violations in the future could face clearance requirements and “protect against discrimination in every state, all 50.”

dith Browne Dianis, codirector of the Advancement Project. The bill also would set new standards for states to meet in publishing changes to election laws and procedures. It would give federal courts more leeway to determine violations, allowing judges to cite not just intentional violations but also those that effectively result in discrimination even if that was not the intent. The bill also would make it easier to obtain injunctions to stop changes in voting laws. In a bid to secure GOP support, the bill includes an exemption for voter identification laws. Under the bill, states would be allowed to pursue laws requiring voters to show identification. If such a law were struck down, it would not count against states’ tally of voting rights violations. Sensenbrenner said the result was a package designed to win passage in both houses. “This is a good compromise,” he said. “Patrick Leahy is about as liberal as I am conservative.”

Leahy said he was optimistic about the bill’s path in the Democraticcontrolled Senate but acknowledged he hasn’t secured a Republican co-sponsor. He said he’d spoken to several Republicans who support the measure and would vote for it on the Senate floor. The path for the bill in the GOP-led House is less certain. Sensenbrenner said he had spoken with some Southern members of the House Republican caucus who expressed support and may sign on as co-sponsors. When asked if House GOP leaders support the bill, Sensenbrenner replied, “They cogitate and think.” He added: “I’m here to say this is the right thing to do.” Voting rights groups generally praised the attempt to forge a compromise. But some said the law should be made even stronger. “While the start of a critical debate on voting, the bill represents a floor, and not a ceiling, for ensuring that elections are free, fair and accessible to all Americans,” said Ju-

MSU Rhodes Scholar to speak at MLK breakfast The Associated Press

STARKVILLE — Character, commitment and leadership defined Martin Luther King Jr. as a civil rights trailblazer, and Mississippi State’s 2013 MLK Jr. Unity Breakfast will feature a student recognized for demonstrating those same qualities. Senior Donald M. “Field” Brown of Vicksburg, the university’s recently named Rhodes Scholar, will be keynote speaker Monday for the 20th annual local celebration of MLK’s life and achievements. The day also is a national holiday established in 1983 by Congress as a memorial to the Baptist minister, humanitarian and activist who was assassinat-

ed in 1968 in Memphis, Tenn. Free and open to all, the MSU program begins at 7 a.m. in Colvard Student Union’s Bill Foster Ballroom. The meal will be followed by the formal program at 8 a.m., and all activities should conclude by 9 a.m. Also scheduled are remarks by MSU President Mark E. Keenum, announcement of local high school MLK essay contest winners and a performance by the campus Black Voices Choir. Brown, an English and philosophy double-major, is one of 32 U.S. residents selected this year for the prestigious international scholarship. As a 2010 Vicksburg High School graduate and the

son of Willie and Cynthia Brown, he was the Magnolia State’s only Rhodes Scholar selection for 2013. Scholars are chosen based on a demonstrated commitment to others and the common good, as well as their scholarly achievements and leadership potential. Brown has credited his time at MSU with giving him the best possible undergraduate experience. “I couldn’t be in a better position if I had gone anywhere else; that’s all you can ask from a college education,” he said. After graduation, Brown will be pursuing a graduate degree at Oxford University in England. He said he considers the opportunity to walk the halls of one of the world’s

top institutions of higher learning to be both a thrilling and life-changing experience. Brown plans to study both American literature and modern English literature, particularly how McCarthyism and Cold War scare tactics affected which books of the period were promoted -- particularly post-World War II African-American literature. In a senior thesis at MSU focusing on AfricanAmerican writer Ralph Ellison (1914-94), Brown is exploring how a politically radical novelist like Ellison was forced to mute his political ideas to become visible and respected. After graduating third in his class at Vicksburg High School, Brown enrolled in

MSU’s Shackouls Honors College. While a student, he has co-founded “The Streetcar,” the first and only creative arts journal on campus, and served as president of the Philosophy and Religion Club. He also has been a member of the Roadrunners student recruiting team and a participant in intramural sports activities. Following conclusion of this year’s unity breakfast, the university’s Maroon Volunteer Center will sponsor an MLK Day of Service. Participants will be working between 1:455 p.m. to complete a service project at the AdatonSelf Creek Volunteer Fire Department, a unit of the Oktibbeha County volunteer fire service located at 1688 County Lake Rd.

Mr. Speaker’s crocodile tears BY ERICK ERICKSON It is an odd fight. Such a weird little battle over meaningless and known outcomes. Conservatives, aware because of press reports and congressional leaks, knew what would be in the Paul Ryan-drafted budget plan. The conservative groups released statements in opposition to the plan based on what they had been told. But there was never any doubt about the Ryan plan passing. After the plan was publicly unveiled by the Republicans at 6 o’clock on a Tuesday night, conservative fears were realized. Those things they knew would be in the plan were, in fact, in the plan. The plan funded Obamacare. The plan raised taxes. The plan broke the sequestration spending limits that, only a month before, Republican leaders had said would never be broken. Speaker Boehner then did something curious. He held two press conferences wherein he lashed out at conservative groups. He denounced them for making up their minds before the plan was publicly unveiled. Never mind that everyone knew what would be in the plan. Never mind that he only gave the public 36 hours to explore the text of the plan — a violation of a campaign promise to give at least 72 hours of examination. Speaker Boehner’s statement sounded like former Speaker Pelosi claiming we had to pass the Ryan plan to find out what was in the Ryan plan. Superficially, it is a very odd fight. But Speaker Boehner’s crocodile tears in his attacks and cries against the conservative movement are really about the next fight. Speaker Boehner intends to pursue immigration reform, with an amnesty component. Before he gets there, he needs to shape battle lines. There are a number of fence sitters on the right. Speaker Boehner needs them on his team. By castigating the conservative movement now and making them the unpopular crowd, the Speaker and Republican leaders intend to draw the fence sitters to them. Once they have done so, they can move on to a primary season where they can fight against the unpopular crowd intent on driving some incumbents from office. Then the real fight will begin — immigration reform. The Speaker assumes he can marginalize conservatives through primary season, make conservatives unpopular, then push through an amnesty-based immigration reform plan, daring his tenuous coalition to move over to the unpopular kids’ table. While conservatives and much of the rest of the country are scratching their heads over Speaker John Boehner’s temper tantrums, the Speaker is laying the ground work for his legacy — he will be the man who gets immigration reform through the House of Representatives. He is already staffing up on this front. Rebecca Tallent is the Speaker’s new immigration policy director. Until last week, Ms. Tallent served as the director of immigration policy at the Bipartisan Policy Center. Before that, she worked for Senator John McCain as his Chief of Staff. Ms. Tallent helped Senators McCain and Kennedy formulate their amnesty-based immigration plan in 2007. Before that, she worked for former Representative Jim Kolbe, an Arizona Republican, helping him with plans to overhaul the American immigration system. It would be very unusual for Speaker Boehner to bring on Ms. Tallent, given her background, unless he was ready to go forward with immigration reform. Likewise, it would be unusual, given her background for Ms. Tallent to go work for someone not interested in comprehensive immigration reform. Speaker Boehner, for all his faults, has been skillfully maneuvering pieces on the chessboard getting ready for this fight. Many have speculated this will be his last congressional session as Speaker. He denies it, but given the fractious nature of his Speakership, it would not be surprising. Any Speaker would want to go out with a legacy heralded by the media. Immigration would do that for John Boehner. Fence sitters in the Republican Party should be careful, lest they wind up working against their own goals in the next fight.

Prayer for today My Father, help me to understand the power of nature, that I may be willing to obey her laws. I pray that I may so live that my life will proclaim itself without need of boasting or deception. Forbid that I should spend my life in perfecting trifles, and have no leisure to enjoy thy great gifts. Amen.

A blank check for war on Iran As we approach the centennial of World War I, we will read much of the blunders that produced that tragedy of Western civilization. Among them will be the “blank check” Kaiser Wilhelm II gave to Vienna after the assassination by a Serb terrorist of the Austrian Archduke Francis Ferdinand. If you decide to punish the Serbs, said the Kaiser, we are with you. After dithering for weeks, Austria shelled Belgrade. Within a week, Germany and Austria were at war with Russia, France and Great Britain. Today the Senate is about to vote Israel a virtual blank check — for war on Iran. Reads Senate bill S.1881: If Israel is “compelled to take military action in legitimate self-defense against Iran’s nuclear weapons program,” the United States “should stand with Israel and provide ... diplomatic, military and economic support to the Government of Israel in the defense of its territory, people and existence.” Inserted in that call for U.S. military action to support an Israeli strike on Iran, S.1881 says that, in doing so, we should follow our laws and constitutional procedures.

Nevertheless, this bill virtually hands over the decision on war to Bibi NetanPat yahu who Buchanan is on record saying: “This Columnist is 1938. Iran is Germany.” Is this the man we want deciding whether America fights her fifth war in a generation in the Mideast? Do we really want to outsource the decision on war in the Persian Gulf, the gas station of the world, to a Likud regime whose leaders routinely compare Iran to Nazi Germany? The bill repeatedly asserts that Iran has a “nuclear weapons program.” Yet in both 2007 and 2011, U.S. intelligence declared “with high confidence” that Iran does not have a nuclear weapons program. Where is the Senate’s evidence for its claim? Why has Director of National Intelligence James Clapper not been called to testify as to whether Tehran has made the decision to go for a bomb? Why are the American people being kept in the dark? The bill says that in a final deal Iran must give up

all enrichment of uranium. However, we have already been put on notice by President Hassan Rouhani that this is an ultimatum Iran cannot accept. Even the reformers of Iran’s Green Revolution of 2009 back their country’s right to a peaceful nuclear program including enrichment. Senate bill S.1881 imposes new sanctions if Iran fails to live up to the interim agreement or fails to come to a final agreement in six months. Yet the Senate knows that Iran has warned that if new sanctions are voted during negotiations, they will walk away from the table. Why is the Senate risking, or even inviting, a blowup in these talks? When the interim agreement was reached, it was denounced by neocons as “worse than Munich.” Now the War Party piously contends this Senate bill is simply an “insurance policy” to ensure that the terms of the deal are met and a final deal reached. Last weekend, the Obama National Security Council finally belled the cat with a blunt statement by spokesperson Bernadette Meehan: “If certain members of Congress want the United States to take military ac-

tion [against Iran], they should be up front with the American public and say so.” Exactly. For whether or not all these senators understand what they are doing, this is where their bill points — to a scuttling of the Geneva talks and a return to the sanctions road, at the end of which lies a U.S. war with Iran. A majority of Democratic senators have thus far bravely bucked AIPAC and declined to co-sponsor S.1881. However, all but two Republican senators have signed on. If, after Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya, the GOP has once again caught the war fever, the party should be quarantined from the White House for another four years. Obama should order U.S. intelligence to tell us the truth. Is Iran truly hell-bent on acquiring a nuclear bomb? Does Iran have a nuclear bomb program? If so, when did Tehran make that decision? Or are we being lied into war again? (Daily Corinthian columnist Pat Buchanan is an American conservative political commentator, author, syndicated columnist, politician and broadcaster.)

Christie claims ignorance, wants bliss BY ROGER SIMON Just because something is true does not mean it is believable. Which is Chris Christie’s real problem. His “see no evil; hear no evil; my staff is evil, but I’m not” defense for the closing of bridge lanes in Fort Lee, N.J., allegedly because the mayor there refused to endorse his re-election may be true. But who is going to believe it? “(Christie’s) the kind of leader ... who says, ‘It’s my way, or I shut down your highway,’” as Stephen Colbert put it the other night. Christie wants to be the Republican nominee and win the presidency in 2016. Once again, the Republicans have a pretty weak field, and Christie leads the early (meaningless) polls for the nomination. But what has he shown the nation in recent weeks? First, he surrounds himself with bullies and goons. Richard Nixon never was convicted of anything, but even if you believe he is not a crook, how do you explain all the crooks he surrounded himself with? How do you explain Haldeman, Ehrlichman, Mitchell, Liddy,

Hunt and all the others who were convicted of crimes? Nixon assembled enough lawbreakers to staff several prison baseball teams. New Jersey Assemblyman John Wisniewski, a Democrat, is heading the legislative investigation of the George Washington Bridge scandal. He says: “It strains credibility to say that somebody in as high a position as a deputy chief of staff, somebody in as high a position as the governor’s principal press spokesperson, somebody in as high a position as his campaign manager ... did not ever communicate this to the governor.” But even if we do believe it, who assembled that team? Chris Christie, wasn’t it? Second, the current accusations against Christie fall on fertile ground. He says he is not a bully. But he has been captured on videotape bullying people, including ordinary citizens. Third, ignorance is not much of an excuse in presidential politics. Generally speaking, voters don’t elect chief executives who admit to being clueless. “I don’t know what makes a legitimate traffic study,” Chris-

tie said in his long mea culpa last week. “I probably wouldn’t know a traffic study if I tripped over it.” But we know what a traffic study is not: It is not setting up orange traffic cones in the predawn darkness and shutting down two of three lanes to the busiest bridge in the world. We don’t need a traffic study to know what happens when you do that. Nobody now believes this was a legitimate traffic study. Except Chris Christie. Christie, like the rest of America, has seen the email from his deputy chief of staff saying, “Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee.” Christie’s longtime pal at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey responded to that email: “Got it.” The lane shutdowns followed. Fourth, Christie claims he did not even know the mayor of Fort Lee. “If he walked in the room, I wouldn’t have been able to pick him out,” he said. That surprises me. Smart pols know and remember people. That’s what pols do. True, Fort Lee has only about 35,700 people. But there are only four munici-

World Wide Web: To Sound Off: E-mail: email: Circulation 287-6111 Classified Adv. 287-6147

palities in New Jersey with populations in six figures, and geographically, New Jersey is the fourth-smallest state in the union. So it’s not as if you have to drive very far to find a mayor. But Christie wants us to believe he couldn’t have picked the mayor of Fort Lee out of a lineup? On the other hand, Christie does remember people who do favors for him. As The Wall Street Journal reported recently, “after the November election, Mr. Christie invited his Democratic supporters to a breakfast at Drumthwacket (the governor’s official residence). He encouraged them to call if they needed help cutting state bureaucracy or navigating agencies, said a Democrat who attended.” So Chris Christie appears to be a guy who rewards his friends and punishes his enemies. Which is how he makes sure people want to be his friends.

Spending bill nears final vote WASHINGTON — A $1.1 trillion bill easing the harshest effects of last year’s automatic spending cuts neared final congressional approval Thursday with wide-scale bipartisan support after tea party critics chastened by last October’s government shutdown mounted only a faint protest. A Senate vote Thursday evening on funding the government through next September was the only step remaining to getting the bill to the White House for President Barack Obama’s signature before a midnight Saturday deadline, when a temporary funding measure expires. The House passed the bill Wednesday with an overwhelming 359-67, bipartisan majority. The huge bill funds the operations of virtually every agency of government, pairing increases for NASA and Army Corps of Engineers construction projects with cuts to the Internal Revenue Service and foreign aid. It cements a tight lid on government spending demanded by Republicans while paying for the implementation of Obama’s health care law and tighter regulations on financial markets, but at levels lower than the president wanted. The compromise-laden legislation reflects the realities of divided power in Washington and a desire by both Democrats and Republicans for an electionyear respite after three years of budget wars that had Congress and the White House lurching from crisis to crisis. Both parties looked upon the measure as a way to ease automatic spending cuts that both the Pentagon and domestic agencies had to begin absorbing last year. Shortly before the final vote, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, delivered a slashing attack on Senate Democrats, accusing them of ignoring the problems caused by the health care law. “It is abundantly clear that millions of Americans are being harmed right now by this failed law,� Cruz said.

For Obama, review is quest to win trust WASHINGTON — Faced with Edward Snowden’s first leaks about the government’s sweeping surveillance apparatus, President Barack Obama’s message to Americans boiled down to this: trust me. “I think on balance, we have established a

process and a procedure that the American people should feel comfortable about,� Obama said in June, days after the initial disclosure about the National Security Agency’s bulk collection of telephone data from millions of people. But the leaks kept coming. They painted a picture of a clandestine spy program that indiscriminately scooped up phone and Internet records, while also secretly keeping tabs on the communications of friendly foreign leaders, like Germany’s Angela Merkel. On Friday, Obama will unveil a muchanticipated blueprint on the future of those endeavors. His changes appear to be an implicit acknowledgement that the trust he thought Americans would have in the spy operations is shaky at best. His focus is expected to be on steps that increase oversight and transparency while largely leaving the framework of the programs in place.

Oscar front-runner status elusive In a hydra-headed Oscar race, “American Hustle,� ‘‘12 Years a Slave� and “Gravity� all have legitimate claims to favorite status. And that’s a good thing. Even if a front-runner emerges from the much-nominated trio over the six weeks leading up to the 86th Academy Awards on March 2, the credentials of each film should be plenty to heighten nerves and add to the drama on Oscar night. “It’s an extremely competitive year,� said David O. Russell, whose “American Hustle� landed 10 nods, tied for most with “Gravity,� in nominations announced Thursday from Beverly Hills, Calif. “It could go any which way.� Steve McQueen’s “12 Years a Slave,� an unflinching depiction of 19th century American slavery, trailed close behind with nine nominations, including nods for McQueen, lead actor Chiwetel Ejiofor and supporting players Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong’o. Since its festival debut, it’s been seen by many as the movie to beat, a film bearing heavy historical gravitas that the lighter “American Hustle� and the literally weightless “Gravity� can’t match. But Russell’s wild Abscam comedy, thick in 1970s style, has ridden a wave of enthusiasm for its manic performances. It’s three in a row for Russell, too, who may be due for bigger Oscar wins than his much-nominated

New Common Core courses approved JACKSON — The details of Mississippi’s transition to Common Core are becoming clearer. The state Board of Education is likely Friday to approve new course high school descriptions, a transition plan for standardized tests and new textbook lists, after discussion Thursday. Mississippi public schools are switching to the new standards even as detractors try to build support in the Legislature to get Mississippi to pull out of Common Core, which has been adopted by 45 states. Mississippi Department of Education officials are warning the changeover in high school math could be particularly challenging, with more difficult material pushed into lower grades. The board plans to eliminate math and English courses based on Mississippi’s old standards. But old math courses are likely to remain in the 2014-2015 school year to ease the transition.

Flying costs climb: Fares rise 12 percent NEW YORK — The price to board an airliner in the United States has risen for the fourth straight year, making it increasingly expensive to fly almost anywhere. The average domestic roundtrip ticket, including tax, reached $363.42 last year, up more than $7 from the prior year, according to an Associated Press analysis of travel data collected from millions of flights throughout the country. The 2 percent increase outpaced inflation, which stood at 1.5 percent. Airfares have risen nearly 12 percent since their low in the depths of the Great Recession in 2009, when adjusted for inflation, the analysis showed.

Circuit clerks issue voter ID cards

Clash: Can police search cellphone?

JACKSON — Circuit clerks have started issuing voter identification cards in Mississippi. Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann says Thursday that clerks in about 15 of the 82 counties have issued the cards. Starting in the June 3 federal primaries, each Mississippi voter will have to show one of 10 specific forms of photo identification at the polls. The first nine are a driver’s license; an ID issued by any branch of Mississippi state government; a U.S. passport; a government employee ID card; a gun license; a student ID from an accredited public or private college; a U.S. military ID; a tribal photo ID; or any other photo ID issued by any branch of the federal government. Anyone lacking one of those can get a free photo ID at a circuit clerk’s office.

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court decided 40 years ago that police don’t need a search warrant to look through anything a person is carrying when arrested. But that was long before smartphones gave people the ability to take with them the equivalent of millions of pages of documents or thousands of photographs. In a new clash over technology and privacy, the court is being asked to resolve divisions among federal and state courts over whether the old rules should still apply in the digital age. The justices could say as early as Friday whether they will hear appeals involving warrantless cellphone searches that led to criminal convictions and lengthy prison terms. There are parallels to other cases making their way through the federal courts, including the much-publicized ones that challenge the massive collection without warrants of telephone records by the National Security Agency. Cellphones are now everywhere. More than 90 percent of Americans own at least one.

Group: Teach kids good health habits JACKSON — The president of the Mississippi State Medical Association says teaching children about exercise and proper nutrition could help reverse some of the state’s terrible health trends. Dr. James A. Rish of

Tupelo released the state’s annual public health report card Thursday at the Capitol. It shows Mississippi is worst in the nation for heart disease and for low birth-weight babies. The state also has the second-highest rates of diabetes, obesity, cancer deaths and teen births. Rish says he’d like to see more Mississippians covered by health insurance, but the association is not taking a position on whether lawmakers should expand Medicaid, the government health insurance program for the needy. Gov. Phil Bryant and fellow Republicans who lead the state House and Senate oppose expansion, while many Democrats favor it.

No foul play found in teenager’s death MADISON — A Madison County grand jury has concluded that a 17-year-old girl’s death was a suicide by prescription medication overdose. Few details had been released surrounding Abigail Bonner’s death after her body was discovered along a road less than a mile from her home on Aug. 14. District Attorney Michael Guest was given the Madison County Police Department’s investigatory notes in December in preparation for a grand jury hearing this week on the case. Bonner was first reported missing on Saturday, Aug. 3, 2013. Police later reclassified her case to a runaway after chasing possible

leads that she had left and traveled to New York City. Her body was found 10 days later in a wooded area about a mile east of her family’s home near Madison Avenue Upper Elementary School.

Attorney files motion to suppress evidence JACKSON — An attorney has filed a motion to suppress evidence against a Mexican man arrested by a U.S. Marshals Service task force searching for a murder suspect in Jackson. A Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics agent assigned to the force was grazed by a bullet during the Dec. 3 search of a home for a suspect who wasn’t there. Authorities say it appears the officer was shot by another agent. Arturo Fomperosa Rodriguez, who was at the house, was charged with illegally possessing a gun. Prosecutors say Rodriguez is in the U.S. on a temporary visa and can’t have a gun. Rodriguez’s lawyer, Lisa Ross, argues in Wednesday’s motion that authorities didn’t have a search warrant for the house. She also says the warrant for the murder suspect listed a different address. Rodriguez was initially charged with assaulting an officer after being accused of pointing the gun at task force agents, but he wasn’t indicted for that. Authorities say Rodriguez pointed a gun at the officers who pursued him into the house so they opened fire.

Anti-gay laws, attitudes remain entrenched While gay-rights activists celebrate gains in much of the world, their setbacks have been equally farflung, and often sweeping in scope. In Russia, a new law against “gay propaganda” has left gays and lesbians unsure of what public actions they can take without risking arrest. In India, gay-rights supporters were stunned by a recent high court ruling re-criminalizing gay sex. A newly signed law in Nigeria sets 10-year prison terms for joining or promoting any gay organization, while a pending bill in Uganda would impose life sentences for some types of gay sex. In such countries, repression of gays is depicted by political leaders as a defense of traditional values. The measures often have broad support from religious leaders and the public, limiting the impact of criticism from outsiders. The upshot: A world likely to be bitterly divided over gay rights for years to come. Globally, the contrasts are striking. Sixteen countries have legalized same-sex marriage nationwide, including Canada, South Africa, Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil and New Zealand as well as 10 European nations, and gay marriage is legal in parts of the United States and Mexico. Yet at least 76 countries retain laws criminalizing gay sex, including five where it’s punishable by death. TEAM DRIVERS - We Need 10 Teams ASAP! Expanding Business!! Exciting Times!!

Court overturns murder conviction JACKSON — The Mississippi Supreme Court has ordered a new trial for a Holmes County man related to a fatal shooting in Jackson. Christopher Harrell was sentenced to life in prison without parole for capital murder in 2010 in Hinds County. Prosecutors say Harrell shot Frank Damico in Jackson in 2008 and dumped Damico’s body in rural Holmes County. They say Harrell stole Damico’s car. The state Court of Appeals upheld Harrell’s conviction in 2012. On Thursday, the Supreme Court ruled the trial judge failed to instruct the jury on the crime of robbery, which was used to support the capital murder charge. In Mississippi, capital murder is defined as murder committed along with another crime, called an underlying felony. In this case, it is robbery.

Robbery, shooting bond set at $10 million GREENVILLE — Bond has been set at $10 million for a Greenville man accused of involvement in a string of armed robberies that ended in a shootout. Police Chief Freddie Cannon tells the Delta Democrat Times that Damien Williams was arrested after officers were called Jan. 8 to an attempted armed robbery and shooting at the Exxon station on Mississippi Highway 1. Cannon says Williams is charged with one count of attempted armed robbery, one count of attempted murder and six counts of armed robbery. William is being held in the Washington County jail. Cannon says the robberies occurred in Greenville between Dec. 7 and Jan 8. Cannon says during a shootout at the Exxon station, a security guard was shot. He has since been released from the hospital.

WastePro lowers amount owed by city NATCHEZ — Waste Pro USA has revised downward what it says the city of Natchez owes for underpayments since July. Waste Pro Division Manager Doug Atkins told The Natchez Democrat ( on Wednesday that the $126,000 figure includes $63,000 for underpayments, and the rest is this month’s bill for service. The city awarded Waste Pro for waste collection in November 2012. Waste Management, which was also vying for the contract, sued the city. Waste Pro began service for the city while the lawsuit was pending. A judge voided the contract and Waste Pro won a second round of bids. When the new contract began in July, the city did not adjust its payment schedule for the new contract. The city says it didn’t receive invoices for the new amount from Waste Pro.

Stahl pleads guilty to charges, gets 3 years

PepsiCo discontinues ‘natural’ Gatorade NEW YORK— PepsiCo has discontinued a line of Gatorade it marketed as “natural,” even as people increasingly look for foods and drinks that are positioned as such. The Purchase, N.Y. company said in a statement that through “engagement with athletes on their fueling needs, we found that Gatorade Naturals and G2 Naturals did not resonate with this core consumer.” On its website, the company said the drinks provided the benefits of regular Gatorade while using ingredients like sea salt. The line had limited distribution in select Whole Foods and Kroger locations. It’s not clear why PepsiCo didn’t invest more heavily in marketing Gatorade Naturals. Americans in recent years have shifted toward foods they feel are natural, with a growing number shunning processed foods that contain chemicals they don’t recognize. Last year, for example, PepsiCo said it would stop using a chemical linked to a flame retardant in its regular Gatorade in response to consumer feedback. Separately, however, PepsiCo has also faced legal challenges over its use of the word “natural.” Last year, it agreed to settle a lawsuit by removing “all natural” from its Naked juice drinks. A lawsuit had challenged the description, saying the drinks contained a synthetic fiber made by Archer Midland Daniels. A lawsuit filed in California in 2012 also questioned the use of the word “natural” to describe some of Frito-Lay’s chips. This past October, PepsiCo revamped its “Simply Natural” line to be called “Simply,” without “Natural.” A spokesman said the change was part of its updated marketing. A spokesman for PepsiCo noted that Gatorade Natural was not the subject of any litigation. He confirmed that the Gatorade Naturals were discontinued this past November. Missi Nadeau, a health psychologist who lives in Ann Arbor, Mich., said she has been buying the natural Gatorade for at least the past three years for her son, to prevent allergic reactions to artificial dyes and preservatives.

PASCAGOULA — John Mark Stahl, the man former Sheriff Mike Byrd admitted attacking after his arrest in 2012 for stealing a Jackson County patrol car, will serve three years in prison as a result of a plea deal formalized in Jackson County Circuit Court Wednesday. Stahl pleaded guilty to charges of taking away a motor vehicle and felony fleeing. Byrd in December admitted to twice kicking Stahl in the groin after he was handcuffed and “unresisting” at the scene of his arrest. Byrd resigned in December after pleading guilty to felonies in federal court in Alabama and Mississippi court in Jackson County. His sentencing in both courts is in March. Circuit Court Judge Kathy King Jackson sentenced Stahl, 51, to 10 years on the motor vehicle theft charge and 5 years on the fleeing law enforcement. Seven years were suspended on the first charge, two years on the second. The sentences will run concurrent, so Stahl will serve three years. Stahl also will serve five years’ postrelease supervision.

Man gets 1 year for human trafficking JACKSON — A man arrested as part of a kidnapping and human trafficking investigation was sentenced Thursday to one year in prison for transporting a woman across state lines for prostitution. Ruperto Moncillo Flores was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Hattiesburg on one count of a violating of the federal Mann Act. The sentence is to be followed by three years supervised release, court officials say. Flores and another man were arrested June 27 after a woman walked into the Hattiesburg, Miss., Police Department and said she’d been abducted in Panama City Beach, Fla. Authorities have said Flores had no knowledge of the abduction, but was asked to transport the woman to Louisiana for prostitution. Authorities say Flores, of Lawrenceville, Ga., was arrested in Mississippi when his van broke down before picking up the kidnapping victim.

Rude inlaws usurp family time WIZARD OF ID





Dear Annie: My husband’s family came to town for a week over the holidays. We made plans to be with them every evening except one. My parents were in the final stages of a job relocation and were leaving town that same weekend. We gave my family the one evening, Sunday, that was not delegated to my inlaws. My husband’s parents asked us twice to go out to dinner with them and their friends on that same evening. We politely declined both times, explaining that we had plans. That Sunday morning, we found out that my in-laws had made dinner reservations for us anyway. Somehow, to my husband, this meant we had to reconsider our options. I thought it was extremely rude. After several hours of arguing, my husband and I compromised by saying we would go to dinner with his parents, eat quickly and then spend the rest of the evening with my parents. Well, dinner was a disaster. One couple was an hour late, and my in-laws insisted on waiting for them. Then, my husband and I, along with his brother, were put at the “children’s” table with three kids under the age of 13. After we finally managed to leave, we ran to my parents’ house only to find everyone else had

Annie’s Mailbox gone. My husband considers this a successful outcome, but I do not. My family was deeply offended by my in-laws’ usurping our only evening together. Am I crazy to think he should have honored the original plans? -- Still Angry Dear Still: Your husband is wrong to think your plans should be changed because someone else rearranged them without your knowledge or permission. He obviously wanted to spend time with his family and not yours, which was unfair under the circumstances. When you agreed to attend his family’s dinner, you also should have set a time to leave and done so, regardless of where you were in the meal. A better compromise would have been for him to have dinner with his folks while you spent the time with yours. While not ideal, it would have been better than anger, resentment and an argument. Now let it go. You’ll do better next time. Dear Annie: My grand-

ma died six months ago, and I miss her more than anything. Life just isn’t the same without her. I’m only 13 years old, and this confuses me. I’m mad at God for taking my grandma from me. My friends say I haven’t been the same, that I’m gloomy and moody and have a short temper. My sister shows hardly any emotion, but I can’t think about my grandma without crying. I feel like I’m taking too long in my grieving process. Am I? Do you have any suggestions? -- Crying Granddaughter Dear Crying: We are so sorry to hear about your grandma. Obviously, you were close to her and miss her terribly. There is no set timetable for grieving, and some people take longer than others. However, if you haven’t managed to move beyond your initial depressed state for six months, please ask your parents to make an appointment for you to see your doctor and a grief counselor, and perhaps discuss this with your clergyperson to understand how God could take your grandma from you. Talking to others who are trained to discuss your grief can help enormously.

Season of discontent The holiday shopping season wasn’t so merry and bright for many retailers. More than two dozen have slashed their fiscal fourth-quarter profit forecast. At first blush the results didn’t look so bad. Holiday sales rose 3.8 percent from last year, according to the National Retail Federation. That’s better than the 3.3 percent average for the past 10 years, but sales came at the expense of profits. Retailers had to discount aggressively to stay competitive and encourage shoppers to buy in an economy that

is still challenging for many. Bad weather and a shorter shopping season also weighed on results. Retailers’ fiscal year typically ends in late January or early February to include the pre-Christmas and post-Christmas season. Ken Perkins, president of RetailMetrics, a market research firm, said that fourth-quarter earnings growth for the 120 stores he tracks are expected to fall 0.7 percent, the first decline since the 6.7 percent drop in the second quarter of 2009 when the economy was just coming out of the recession.

These stocks have struggled after the retailers lowered their earnings guidance.

Strong finish? Throughout 2013, General Electric suggested earnings growth would be strongest late in the year. Investors expect to see that strength when GE reports its fourth quarter earnings today. GE is in the midst of a transformation to simpler, narrower industrial company that makes and services complex industrial equipment. Investors will be listening for hints as to how GE plans to keep up its earnings growth as its transformation continues.

Kids who skipped dad’s funeral happy to claim his belongings DEAR ABBY: When my husband died, he didn’t have a lot of possessions. He died without a will, so what little he had is now with me. My problem is my mother-in-law keeps asking that I return things she gave him. I wouldn’t mind if she has them, but she has been giving them to his children, who hated him and were rude and disrespectful. They neither called nor came to see him during his long illness. They didn’t even bother to come to his funeral. I feel they want his things only because they think they might be of some value, not out of any respect or affection. My kids showed him more respect and love than his own did, and I’d rather they have his things. Should I be honest and tell my mother-in-law why I won’t give her any more of his possessions? I just don’t know what to do. -OKLAHOMA WIDOW DEAR WIDOW: It’s sad that your stepchildren ignored their father during his illness and chose to skip his funeral. Be sure to point that out when you tell your former mother-in-law you have other plans for the items. She may not like hearing it, but once a gift is given, it belongs to the recipient. And because her son died without a will, the recipient is you, his widow.

D E A R ABBY: I recently started a new job. One of the management individuals has taken a Abigail strong interin me. He Van Buren est keeps doing favors for me Dear Abby that benefit me financially and I appreciate it. (I have never asked him to do this.) I have always been courteous and took his gestures as a sign of kindness. But now he has started complimenting me and talking about things that go way beyond conversation. It’s making me uncomfortable. We have gone out on two friendly lunches before, and he is a genuine, kind, educated, wonderful man. He would be a great catch, but the problem is he is extremely overweight. I am emotionally attracted to him, but physically repelled. I can’t wait years for him to lose the weight, but he is taking my kindness as a possible show of interest. Have you any advice that could help end his attraction, but continue the business advice he provides for me? -- IN A SPOT IN TAMPA

DEAR IN A SPOT: When the man compliments you about anything that isn’t work-connected, tell him that when he does it, it makes you uncomfortable. And when he raises topics that aren’t business-related, steer the conversation right back where it belongs. He may be a wonderful person, but if he persists, it could be considered harassment. DEAR ABBY: I am part of a group of neighbors who often go out to dinner together. However, one woman often talks loudly on her cellphone at the dinner table, and it makes the rest of us feel uncomfortable and insignificant. It has gotten so bad we have stopped inviting her. I feel sorry for her and wonder if I should explain the reason she’s being excluded. What is the best way to handle this? -- FRIEND IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD DEAR FRIEND: If done discreetly and kindly, it might benefit the woman to know why she’s no longer included. Frankly, you’d be doing her a favor because her behavior was rude. (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). Be more careful with your belongings, cash or partners’ funds. You might expand your clientele base. If you are in love, today you are capable of both heroic acts and silly things. One thing is clear, though, that your efforts will earn the attention they deserve. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You can try some new activity and even fast become quite successful in it. You might be inspired to do so by someone else’s example. However, stay true to your old values: your habits don’t change in a blink of an eye. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Female Gemini won’t get taken aback by any emergency and be able to become an informal leader. At the same time, the risk of becoming victimized by a noble idea will increase today. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Don’t deprive youself of spontaneous creativity. Start by setting up the safety rules. On placing some hay, you won’t be trembling at the very thought of falling down. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your

spirit and the sanctity of values that you still profess will be far more important. If you stay true to yourself, you won’t be alone: your old friends and former patrons will be on your side. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). This is a perfect time for those of you who haven’t been courageous enough to change a typical scenario no matter what sphere of life. Keep in mind, though, today is not the day for prolonged experiments. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Interaction with children and friends as well as with a well-coordinated team will be smooth. However, your close relationship is fraught with sudden disagreements. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Don’t focus on your own problems only. You will enjoy supporting others today. Lending a helping hand to an animal shelter or an orphanage will give you energy and optimism. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Some financial issue may hinder you from achieving their goal. An amazing discovery or a great idea might be worth-

less if you don’t have any funds to make your dream come true. Take life easy and don’t get hung up on the material side of things. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Objectivity isn’t your strongest point today – make peace with it. It’ll be difficult for you to stay balanced, make the right choice and spend money wisely. You might have disputes with the female part of your family; some household discomfort is probable, too. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Socialize more with your neighbors, close relatives, travel companions, fellow-students and fellow-hobbyists. This will be the day for quick unconventional deals given your input, too. Teachers today will be surrounded by knowledge-starved students. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’re simply moving your own speed. You may not be a leader, but this doesn’t mean you are a loser, either. The environment is changing way too fast for you; on the bright side, you’re bound to make fewer mistakes than others.

MLB approves expanded replay The Associated Press

PARADISE VALLEY, Ariz. — Ever since the game was invented, before television or even radio existed, baseball counted on the eyes and ears of umpires on the field. Starting this season, many key decisions will be made in a studio far away. Major League Baseball vaulted into the 21st century of technology on Thursday, approving a huge expansion of instant replay in hopes of eliminating blown calls that riled up players, managers and fans. “I think it’s great,” San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. “It’s about getting it right.” Acknowledging the human

An Arkansas State football player and his stepfather were shot to death during a home invasion robbery in Jackson, Tenn., with the athlete apparently trying to protect his parents from their attackers, police said Thursday. Markel Owens, a 21-year-old junior defensive lineman for the Red Wolves, was fatally shot along with Johnny Shivers, 36, during the robbery at a duplex on Wednesday night. Shivers died at the scene, while Owens was pronounced dead after being taken to Jackson-Madison County General Hospital. A 37-year-old woman, who was Shivers’ wife and Owens’ mother, was also shot. She was treated and released from the hospital. Her name was not released, but Owens’ mother is listed as Chermaine Owens in the Arkansas State media guide. “I think you can conclude that he was protecting his mother and stepfather,” Jackson police spokesman Tyreece Miller said of Owens. Jerry Scott, the school’s sports information director, called it a sad day for the Red Wolves. “We’re deeply saddened and our utPlease see ASU | 11A

element had been overtaken in an era when everyone except the umps could see several views over and over in slow-motion, owners and players and umpires OKed the new system. Now each manager will be allowed to challenge at least one call per game. If he’s right, he gets another challenge. After the seventh inning, a crew chief can request a review on his own if the manager has used his challenges. “I tell you the fans will love it,” baseball Commissioner Bud Selig said after owners met and voted their unanimous approval. “It’s another in a long list of changes that will make this sport better than it already is.”

Baseball was the last major pro sport in North America to institute replay when it began late in the 2008 season. Even then, it was only used for close calls on home runs. The NFL, NBA, NHL, some NCAA sports and major tennis tournaments all use a form of replay, and even FIFA and the English Premier League have adopted goal-line technology for soccer. Not that managers won’t still occasionally bolt from the dugout, their veins bulging. The so-called “neighborhood play” at second base on double plays cannot be challenged. Many had safety concerns for middle infielders being wiped out by hard-charging runners if the

phantom force was subject to review. Ball-and-strike calls can’t be contested. Neither can check-swings and foul tips. Nor can obstruction and interference rulings — those are up to the umpires’ judgment, like the one at third base in Game 3 of the World Series last October that sent St. Louis over Boston. All reviews will be done by current MLB umpires at a replay center in’s New York office. To create a large enough staff, MLB agreed to hire six new big league umpires and call up two minor league umps for the entire season. A seventh Please see REPLAY | 11A

Ole Miss defeats LSU in overtime The Associated Press

OXFORD — Marshall Henderson curled around a screen a few feet behind the 3-point line with two LSU defenders draped all over him. The Mississippi guard was not open. Not even close. But he leapt into the air and let one fly anyway. It splashed through the net as he was fouled and Tad Smith Coliseum exploded with cheers. The Rebels’ noconscience shooter was back and he poured in 25 points to lead Ole Miss to an 88-74 victory over LSU on Wednesday night. “You know what’s sick? I expect them to go in,” Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy said. “That’s sick. Of course,

I’m the one that lets him shoot them all.” Henderson started slowly, but scored 19 points after halftime. He made a crucial 3-pointer midway through overtime that gave the Rebels (11-5, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) a 76-69 lead. Ole Miss went on an 11-0 run to start overtime for an

insurmountable 80-69 lead. Freshman Sebastian Saiz added a career-high 20 points on 8-of-11 shooting from the field. Aaron Jones had 13 points, 13 rebounds and two blocks. Jarvis Summers scored 20 for the Rebels, including a 15foot jumper with 30 seconds remaining in regulation to tie the game at 69. LSU’s Anthony Hickey missed a jumper with 4 seconds left in regulation that would have won the game. “It was a good shot, I got what I wanted,” Hickey said. “I just wasn’t able to make it. They hit the tough shots when they were down.” Andre Stringer scored 23 points for LSU (10-5, 1-2). He

led a Tigers bench that combined for 40 points. Shavon Coleman added 15 points and Jarell Martin 14. Ole Miss has won six of the last seven against LSU. Henderson missed the Auburn and Mississippi State games because of a suspension announced in October for poor on- and off-the-court behavior stemming from last season. He was excellent in his return, making 6 of 12 shots from 3-point range and adding a career-high seven assists. “Watching those (Auburn and Mississippi State) games — I was just pulling my hair out,” Henderson said. “I was Please see REBELS | 11A

Alabama rolls over Mississippi State The Associated Press

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Mississippi State couldn’t execute its plan for containing Trevor Releford, and the Alabama star took full advantage. Releford scored 28 points, nailed six 3-pointers and led the Crimson Tide to an 8061 win over the Bulldogs on Wednesday night. “When you don’t carry out scouting assignments against a good player, he’s going to have some success,” Bulldogs coach Rick Ray said. “We wanted to make sure we took away some opportunities from Releford, and we didn’t do that.”

Releford was 10-of-13 shooting for the Tide (8-8, 2-1 Southeastern Conference), which has won a league-high 14 consecutive SEC home games. Shannon Hale added 12 points for Alabama, Retin Obasohan had 11 and Rodney Cooper 10.

Releford was 6 of 9 from 3-point range and is averaging 22 points over the last five games. Obasohan also had four blocked shots and three steals. “Offensively the second half we really got into a flow,” Alabama coach Anthony Grant said. “Trevor was tremendous tonight, and not just with the points. I thought he really led our team with the way he played. “It’s great to see the ball go in and these guys have success.” Gavin Ware’s 18 points on 7-of-8 shooting led Mississippi

State (11-5, 1-2), which was held within three points of its season-low in scoring. Craig Sword scored 12 points. The Bulldogs had managed 58 in an early win over Jackson State and 63 against Kentucky a week ago. They were coming off a win over rival Mississippi but couldn’t sustain that play. Ray said he didn’t like what he saw even in the pre-game shootaround. “We’ve got to find a way for our guys to learn how to deal with success,” he said. “We haven’t had a lot of success Please see BULLDOGS | 11A

Spurrier gets extension, $700,000 raise The Associated Press

ASU player shot, killed in robbery

Friday, January 17, 2014

COLUMBIA, S.C. — South Carolina’s Steve Spurrier has received a one-year contract extension and a raise that will pay the coach $4 million annually. The university board of trustees approved a $700,000 raise and the extension Thursday. The deal ties Spurrier to the school through 2018. If the 68-yearold coach decides to retire, the trustees voted for a contract clause that would make Spurrier a special assistant to

university President Harris Pastides and athletic director Ray Tanner. With the raise, Spurrier becomes one of the top 10 highest-paid college football coaches in the country. Spurrier’s nine assistant coaches also received raises that put their combined compensation at $3.3 million, up from the $2.7 the group earned this past season. All assistants were given new two-year contract agreements except for defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward,

who received a three-year deal. Also earning a raise was quarterbacks coach G.A. Mangus, whose salary was frozen for a year after his arrest for urinating in public. Mangus’ salary increased $100,000 to $275,000. Ward will be the highestpaid assistant at $750,000, a $100,000 raise. The biggest boost came for offensive line coach Shawn Elliott, who saw his compensation rise from $305,000 to $430,000 next fall. Spurrier thanked Pastides,

Tanner and the board for the new contracts and raises. “We all hope to coach here many more years and we still have some goals that have not been accomplished yet,” he said. Spurrier led the Gamecocks to a third-straight 11-2 season. Before he arrived in 2004, South Carolina had only one 10-win season in history. “It was a fun year. I tell you what, our players found a way to win all these games,” Spurrier said. “We didn’t clobber a lot of people.”

Odom scores 24 as Vanderbilt beats Missouri The Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Rod Odom scored a career-high 24 points, hitting six 3-pointers, and the short-handed Vanderbilt Commodores beat Missouri 78-75 Thursday night in the Tigers’ first visit to Memorial Gym as a member of the Southeastern Conference. Vanderbilt (9-6, 1-2) snapped a two-game skid by avoiding foul trouble and hitting a season-high 12 3-pointers. The Commodores are down to seven scholarship players after leading scorer Eric McClellan first was suspended from the university, then kicked off the team for good last week. They lost

their first two games without McClellan. Missouri (13-3, 1-2) now has lost two of three. The Tigers were looking for their third road win this season trying to work their way back into the Top 25. Kyle Fuller added 22 points for Vanderbilt. Dai-Jon Parker had 11, and Damian Jones added 10. Jabari Brown scored 22 points for Missouri, while Jordan Clarkson had 18 and Ross 11. The Tigers opened the second half by scoring the first eight points in taking their first lead since the opening bucket on a layup by Williams at 40-39. The teams swapped

the lead back and forth before Fuller finished off a fast-break with a layup for Vanderbilt putting the Commodores back ahead 45-44 with 13:30 to go. That started a 10-2 spurt featuring a pair of 3s from Odom, the second giving Vandy a 53-46 lead with 10:52 remaining. Misssouri pulled within 60-57 on a jumper by Brown with 4:17 left. First Fuller hit a 3-pointer, then Odom added his sixth 3 to push the lead to 66-59 with 2:00 left. The Tigers couldn’t get closer than the final score on a 3-pointer by Clarkson with 2 seconds left as Vanderbilt went 6 of 7 at the free throw line in the final 40 seconds with Fuller

hitting all six of attempts at the line to seal the win. These are two of the SEC’s best shooting teams and the league’s best defending against the 3-pointer with Vanderbilt (27.8 percent) just ahead of Missouri (28.6 percent). The Commodores shredded Missouri’s defense as they knocked down 3 after 3 and finished 12 of 32 (37.5 percent) — both season-highs allowed by the Tigers. That more than made up for Missouri outrebounding Vanderbilt 45-35 and the Tigers’ 3616 scoring edge in the paint. Missouri opened the game with a 3 by Brown for the Tigers’ biggest lead of the game.

Ole Miss led 35-32 at halftime. The 6-foot-9, 233-pound Saiz was dominant in the first half, playing his best basketball of the season. He was 6 of 7 for 12 points, finishing on an array of dunks and smooth moves by the rim. LSU countered with Stringer, who scored 10 points in the first half. Then the 5-foot-10 guard â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a Jackson, Miss., native â&#x20AC;&#x201D; single-handedly helped the Tigers leap past the Rebels early in the second half by making three 3-pointers in less than 2 minutes. The only thing that could stop Stringer was foul trouble. He picked up his fourth with 13 minutes remaining in the game and had to go to the bench. The game stayed tight throughout the entire second half. LSU had a slim lead most of the time.

here, but when we do our guys get so wrapped up in that success and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t carry it over to the next game and know who we are as a team.â&#x20AC;? Alabama shot 52.6 percent (30 of 57) from the floor and made 10 3-pointers. It was a dominant performance for the Tide, which led by 12 at halftime after scoring just 58 points in a road loss to Georgia. The Tide has won the last four meetings and six straight over the Bulldogs at Coleman Coliseum. Releford hit two 3-pointers in a 36-second span and Hale hit a third to give Alabama a 56-37 lead with 12:19 left. The quick surge came after Releford was called for a technical foul for jawing after making a basket and the Bulldogs followed with five straight points. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was very hyped up,â&#x20AC;? Releford said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just a lot of energy. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a senior. I shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get that technical. I should be smarter than that.â&#x20AC;? Releford didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do much wrong the rest of the night, dishing out four assists against one turnover. Alabamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead ballooned to 23 points on another Releford 3-pointer and a drive by Randolph and Mississippi State

most sympathies go out to his family, teammates and classmates,â&#x20AC;? Arkansas State athletic director Terry Mohajir said in a statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Please join me in prayer for so many people who are being impacted by the loss of Markel.â&#x20AC;? Investigators say Shivers was arriving home when he was rushed by two masked men and forced inside the apartment, where Owens and his mother were. The suspects demanded

money and a struggle began, with Owens attempting to help Shivers by fighting one of the men, police said. Shivers and Owens were both shot during the struggle and one of the gunmen then shot the woman. The suspects got away with a large amount of cash, police said. Investigators say they believe Shivers was specifically targeted and police also discovered a large amount of marijuana inside the apartment. While the motive remains under investi-

gation, police believe the robbers knew that drugs, money or both were in the apartment. Owens played in 11 games for the Red Wolves last season, helping Arkansas State (8-5) to at least a share of its third straight Sun Belt Conference title and a second straight win in the GoDaddy Bowl. The 6-foot2, 303-pound native of Jackson, Tenn., would have been a senior next season. Former North Carolina offensive coordinator Blake Anderson was named the new

Anderson is the Red Wolvesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fifth head coach in as many seasons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Markel was a part of our Red Wolves family, and it is obvious he was a well-liked and respected member of our team who will be missed,â&#x20AC;?

Now Open! couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get it much closer. The Tide closed the first half on a 9-1 run to take a 38-26 lead and only heated up after that.

Mississippi State came in averaging a league-best 9.6 steals and had only three, forcing 11 turnovers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Their defense, like we try to do, creates offense

Execution takes 25 minutes Wildfire burns homes, forces evacuations in California The Associated Press

LUCASVILLE, Ohio — A condemned man appeared to gasp several times and took an unusually long time to die — more than 20 minutes — in an execution carried out Thursday with a combination of drugs never before tried in the U.S. Dennis McGuire’s attorney Allen Bohnert called the convicted killer’s death “a failed, agonizing experiment” and added: “The people of the state of Ohio should be appalled at what was done here today in their names.” McGuire’s lawyers had attempted last week to block his execution, arguing that the untried method could lead to a medical phenomenon known as “air hunger” and cause him to suffer “agony and terror” while struggling to catch his breath. McGuire, 53, made loud snorting noises during one of the longest execu-

tions since Ohio resumed capital punishment in 1999. Nearly 25 minutes passed between the time the lethal drugs began flowing and McGuire was pronounced dead at 10:53 a.m. Executions under the old method were typically much shorter and did not cause the kind of sounds McGuire made. Ohio prisons spokeswoman JoEllen Smith had no comment on how the execution went but said a review will be conducted as usual. Prison officials gave intravenous doses of two drugs, the sedative midazolam and the painkiller hydromorphone, to put McGuire to death for the 1989 rape and fatal stabbing of a pregnant newlywed, Joy Stewart. The method was adopted after supplies of a previously used drug dried up because the manufacturer declared it off limits

for capital punishment. The execution is certain to launch a new round of federal lawsuits over Ohio’s injection procedure. The state has five more executions scheduled this year, with the next one to come on Feb. 19. What was particularly unusual Thursday was the five minutes or so that McGuire lay motionless on the gurney after the drugs began flowing, followed by a sudden snort and then more than 10 minutes of irregular breathing and gasping. Normally, movement comes at the beginning and is followed by inactivity. In pressing for the execution to go ahead, Assistant Ohio Attorney General Thomas Madden had argued that while the U.S. Constitution bans cruel and unusual punishment, “you’re not entitled to a pain-free execution.”

The Associated Press

GLENDORA, Calif. — Nearly 2,000 residents were evacuated and two homes burned in a wildfire that started early Thursday when three people tossed paper into a campfire in the dangerously dry and windy foothills of Southern California’s San Gabriel Mountains, authorities said. Embers from the fire fanned by gusty Santa Ana winds quickly spread into neighborhoods below where residents were awakened in the pre-dawn darkness and ordered to leave. The three suspects, all men in their 20s, were arrested on charges of recklessly starting the fire that spread smoke across the Los Angeles basin and cast an eerie cloud all the way to the

coast. One resident suffered minor burns in the neighborhood abutting Angeles National Forest, just north of the San Gabriel Valley community of Glendora, according to Los Angeles County Fire Chief Daryl L. Osby. Hundreds of homes were saved because of firefighters’ preparations, he said. At least 2 square miles of dry brush were charred in the wilderness area about 25 miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles. Ash rained down on the city, said Jonathan Lambert, 31, general manager of Classic Coffee. “We’re underneath a giant cloud of smoke,” he said. “It’s throwing quite the eerie shadow over a lot of Glendora.” Police said the three suspects were detained near Colby Trail, where

the fire was believed to have started. At least one was homeless, Glendora Police Chief Tim Staab said. Police identified the suspects as Robert Aguirre, 21, of Los Angeles; Jonathan Carl Jarrell, 23, of Irwindale; and Clifford Eugene Henry, Jr., 22, of Glendora. A resident spotted “a couple of suspicious fellows moving down from the hill into the wash” and called police, Mayor Joseph A. Santoro said. Glendora officers picked up two of them, and a Forest Service officer detained the third, he said. Because of the conditions the national forest was under “very high” fire danger restrictions, posted on numerous signs, which bar campfires anywhere except in camp fire rings in designated campgrounds.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Nashvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; TV show fans will love real Music City The Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Being a little bit more rockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;roll than country, I had never considered putting a country-fried city like Nashville on my travel bucket list. Yet here I was, standing in a strip mall parking lot in Music City on a chilly Sunday afternoon, outside The Bluebird Cafe. In a half-hour period, four cars had pulled up so a passenger could snap a photo of the trademark blue awning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s closed? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand. I thought they filmed here,â&#x20AC;? said one young woman before getting a picture and driving away. The Bluebird is an often-used setting in ABCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nashvilleâ&#x20AC;? drama. Although the show films in a replica on a soundstage, that hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stopped fans from visiting the real space. The Bluebird is one of several places that has gotten a Hollywood bump from the show, which stars Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere as country music superstars.

As I became addicted to the show, I began to notice how much of a star the city was. So, I followed my inner fan-girl and decided to see Music City for myself. A tour company offers a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nashvilleâ&#x20AC;?-centric bus tour. But I opted to use a list from the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tourism website to go at my own pace.

Ryman Auditorium The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mother Church of Country Musicâ&#x20AC;? was built in 1892 in what would become downtown Nashville by businessman Thomas G. Ryman as a venue for evangelist Sam Jones. From 19431974, it was the home of the Grand Ole Opry, the long-running, weekly radio showcase made up of a variety of big-name and smaller country acts. A National Historic Landmark, the Ryman is open for tours. Costumes, programs and other memorabilia tied to performers such as Hank Williams, Minnie Pearl

and Roy Acuff are prominently displayed on the first and second floors. The Ryman is also where Rayna (Britton) and Juliette (Panettiere) did the duet â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wrong Songâ&#x20AC;? in the first season. Today, the Ryman only hosts the Grand Ole Opry between November and January. With the acoustics and the crescent arc to the pew seating, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to find a bad seat. Depending on whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playing, tickets are sometimes available the day of the show. And you never know who will be playing. In a happy coincidence, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nashvilleâ&#x20AC;? actor Jonathan Jackson, who plays musician Avery Barkley, was on the line-up the day I went. In fact, most of the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cast has performed with the Opry since becoming part of the Nashville scene.

Honky Tonk Highway Tourists and locals flock to the row of bars and clubs, or â&#x20AC;&#x153;honky tonks,â&#x20AC;? on Broadway in

downtown Nashville. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a buffet of bars that continuously hums with live music. Sidewalk musicians whose bread and butter is singing for tips are out there all day. The signage on the entire row is lit up in neon at night, an often-used exterior shot on the show. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nashvilleâ&#x20AC;? has also filmed inside some of the bars, including Laylaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bluegrass Inn and Tootsieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Orchid Lounge. Established in 1960, Tootsieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is the crown jewel of Honky Tonk Highway. Country artists such as Kris Kristofferson and Willie Nelson played there early in their careers. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not clear on TVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nashvilleâ&#x20AC;? that these clubs are actually on the same block. The incredible access to so much live music packed into just a few blocks is not a phenomenon found in every city. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth walking up and down the street, which on weekend nights can be as chaotic as New Orleansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Bourbon Street â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but minus the beads.

Bluebird Cafe A cultural institution in the country music industry, The Bluebird Cafeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s location close to a McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s will probably take â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nashvilleâ&#x20AC;? viewers by surprise. For songwriters and singers, playing for the 100-seat room is a rite of passage. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tight squeeze but the feeling of intimacy is one of the cafĂŠâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main draws. Nestled at a table in the real Bluebird, I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help but expect that someone from the show would walk in and break into song. That feeling is a testament to how well the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nashvilleâ&#x20AC;? set designers copied every detail. Reservations for shows are only available online a few days in advance and sell out quickly. Some shows are free (with the purchase of drinks or food) on a first-come-firstserve basis. According to staffers, the television exposure has sometimes led to as many as 300 people in line. They recommend showing up as early as

two hours prior to ensure entry.

East Nashville To further enhance my â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nashvilleâ&#x20AC;? experience, I crossed the Cumberland River to the hipster-haven of East Nashville. The east side is a vibrant hodgepodge of families, artists and musicians. The show has also filmed around this part of town â&#x20AC;&#x201D; with good reason. There are numerous restaurants, coffeehouses and clubs worth patronizing. The 5 Spot, a laid-back club where â&#x20AC;&#x153;Monday is still the new Friday,â&#x20AC;? draws guys in T-shirts and baseball caps as well as guys with fedoras. Country isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only musical genre that can be heard here. Some nights are oldies and soulthemed. Visiting musicians run the gamut as well. Note that The 5 Spot permits guests to smoke cigarettes, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot smokier and more dimly lit than on TV.

Ending to sitcom â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;How I Met Your Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; filmed 8 years ago The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Producers filmed the climactic scene of CBSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;How I Met Your Motherâ&#x20AC;? finale eight years ago, fearing the actors involved would become unrecognizable, and have kept it under wraps ever since. The Monday-night comedy concludes after nine seasons on March 31 with a one-hour episode. The comedyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s central conceit is that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a story told by actor Josh Radnorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s character, Ted, to his teenage children about how their mom and dad met. The children, played by David

Henrie and Lyndsy Fonseca, were depicted in the seriesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; early days sitting on a couch, shifting uncomfortably in boredom as their dad narrated the long-winded story. Although the mother, played by actress Cristin Milioti, was introduced in last seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final episode, the details of how they met still havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been revealed. Series co-creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas knew from the beginning exactly how that question would be answered, and always planned it for the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final episode. And the kids on the couch

would be a key component of that ending. Yet in 2006, with the series in its second season and the possibility existing that it could be on for several more years, Bays and Thomas realized theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d better film that final scene right away. After all, the actors were growing up, would soon look different and wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even be able to fit in the clothes they wear while sitting on the couch. So one day Bays and Thomas brought the young actors in, closed the set to all but one camera operator, and filmed the two-minute

scene that will bring the series to a close. Henrie and Fonseca signed nondisclosure agreements. So intent on keeping the secret, Fonseca put it out of her mind and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even remember what they filmed, Thomas said on Wednesday. Through all the seasons that have come since, there hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been any reason to change it, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been the plan all along,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What you see on March 31 has been the plan. We leave the series with a certain message that we wanted to convey.â&#x20AC;? Producers filmed some

extra scenes with Henrie and Fonseca to give themselves some flexibility with writing the final episode, but the central idea is the same, said Pamela Fryman, the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director and executive producer. The rest of the actors are scheduled to film the final episode on Feb. 28. Milioti may not have had her job if the series hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lasted as long, however. Bays said producers had contingency plans for another mother â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the baker character Victoria that Ted met during the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first season â&#x20AC;&#x201D; if CBS canceled the se-

ries. It was touch-and-go for the first few seasons until â&#x20AC;&#x153;How I Met Your Motherâ&#x20AC;? built a consistent following. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We really did have an eight-year plan,â&#x20AC;? Bays said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It turned out to be nine years.â&#x20AC;? Not all of the current cast members know how their show will end, although Harris said he cornered the producers at an office party recently and compelled them to tell the story. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more complicated than you would assume,â&#x20AC;? Harris said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and for all of our fans, they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be disappointed.â&#x20AC;?

Will you pray for America? President Ronald Reagan once said, “If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.” How true this is! And, it seems that America is headed in that direction. Since prayer was taken out of schools in 1962 it seems that America has taken a downward turn. With our new government in place it seems that we are going further and further down the road and turning away from God in most every instance. How much longer are we, as Christian Americans, going to let this happen? Most Americans will tell you they believe in prayer. Most Americans will tell you that that there is a God, however, most Americans are letting this country go down the tube because we are not standing on the

promises that God gave to us. We are the same as the IsGary r a e l i t e s the Andrews of old testaDevotionals ment in 2 Chronicles 7:1122. This passage tells us of the Lord appearing to Solomon and giving him explicit instructions for himself and Israel. Could this story apply to America of today also? We have gotten away from what truths built this country. We have gotten away from the integrity and hard work of Godly people who worshiped the Lord and called on Him in times of trouble. People, we are in times of trouble in America. Many of our systems

are failing and we, as a worldly congregation are trying to fix it without calling on the name of the Lord, our creator and sustainer. Pay careful attention to verses 21 and 22. “... Why has the Lord done such a thing to this land and to this temple? People will answer, “Because they have forsaken the Lord, the God of their fathers,...” All of us need to pray for ourselves and pray for our country. We need to look at 2 Chronicles 7:14 and do as this verse tells us. “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” Prayer: Lord, thank you for being a patient God. I pray that I will be

in your will in all that I do and Lord, I pray for America. We are in a time of great need and You are the only one that can bring us out of this peril. Amen.

Vatican under criticism for sex abuse The Associated Press

GENEVA — The Vatican came under blistering criticism from a U.N. committee Thursday for its handling of the global priest sex abuse scandal, facing its most intense public grilling to date over allegations that it protected pedophile priests at the expense of victims. The Vatican insisted it had little jurisdiction to sanction pedophile priests around the globe, saying it was for local law enforcement to do so. But officials conceded that more needs to be done and promised to build on progress already made to become a model for others, given the scale of the problem and the role the Holy See plays in the international community. “The Holy See gets it,” Monsignor Charles Scicluna, the Vatican’s former sex crimes prosecutor, told the committee. “Let’s not say too late or not. But there are certain things that need to be done differently.” He was responding to a grilling by the U.N. committee over the Holy See’s failure to abide by terms of the U.N. Convention on the Rights of

the Child which, among other things, calls for signatories to take all appropriate measures to keep children from harm. Critics allege the church enabled the rape of thousands of children by encouraging a culture of cover-up to defend its reputation. Groups representing victims of clerical abuse, who have been active in civil litigation against the church, gave the U.N. committee hundreds of pages of documents that informed the questioning. The groups have welcomed the hearing as the first time the Vatican has had to publicly defend its record in what amounted to a courtroom crossexamination where no limits were placed on the questioning. But Barbara Blaine, president of the Survivors’ Network of those Abused by Priests, or SNAP, said Thursday that the Vatican’s responses seem like “more of the same.” The scene inside the conference room at U.N. headquarters in Geneva was remarkable by U.N. standards, with committee members themselves marveling at how such a

powerful institution as the Holy See could be hauled before a relatively obscure U.N. human rights committee. While insisting on legal separation, though, the Vatican did respond to questions about cases even where it had no jurisdiction or involvement. “I’m with you when you say, ‘All these nice words will not mean anything ... if there is not more transparency and accountability on the local level,’” Scicluna told committee member Benyam Mezmur, an Ethiopian academic who asked what it would take for the Holy See to sanction bishops who fail to report pedophiles to police. Scicluna has been credited even by victims with helping bring the Vatican around over the past decade, overhauling its internal norms to make it easier to defrock abusers and calling for greater accountability by bishops who allowed priests to roam free. He said local criminal prosecutors must go after anyone — “whoever these people are” — who obstructs justice. The committee’s main

human rights investigator, Sara de Jesus Oviedo Fierro, was particularly tough on the Vatican delegation, asking repeated and informed follow-up questions and refusing to let the Vatican duck the answers. Oviedo pressed the Vatican delegation on the frequent ways abusive priests were transferred rather than turned in to police. Given the church’s “zero tolerance” policy, she asked, why were there “efforts to cover up and obscure these types of cases?” Committee members repeatedly asked the Holy See to provide data about the scale of the problem, but the Vatican deferred, saying it would consider the request. They also asked what Pope Francis intends to do with a new commission announced last month to find best practices to protect children from abuse and help victims heal. In addition, the members sought information about accusations that the Vatican’s own ambassador to the Dominican Republic had sexually abused teenage boys.

Religion Briefs Associated Press

Protests at clinics return to court agenda WASHINGTON— The regulation of protests outside abortion clinics returned to the Supreme Court for the first time since 2000. The state of Massachusetts is defending a law that prohibits abortion protests any closer than 35 feet from the entrance to clinics. Abortion opponents hoping to dissuade women from ending their pregnancies filed suit, saying the law limits their ability to encounter patients arriving for care. But federal courts in Massachusetts have upheld the law as a reasonable imposition on protesters’ rights. In 2000, the Supreme Court voted 6-3 to uphold a different buffer zone in Colorado. State officials and clinic employees say the buffer zones make patients and staff feel safer and find it easier to enter abortion clinics. The Rev. Harry Knox, president of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, says the law protects women from harassment as they exercise their rights. But the Rev. Patrick Mahoney, director of the Christian Defense Coalition, says he prays the Supreme Court will find that the law unconstitutionally suppresses free speech.

Kerry visits diplomat to talk Mideast peace VATICAN CITY — Intrigued by signals of an invigorated papal diplomacy, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has enlisted a new ally in his push for Mideast peace. In a brief visit to the Vatican Tuesday, Kerry did not meet with Pope Francis but said he had wide-ranging discussions with the pope’s chief diplomat. Kerry is the first American Roman Catholic secretary of state to visit the Vatican since Edmund Muskie more than 30 years ago. He told reporters, “As an altar boy as a young kid, I would never have imagined that I would have been crossing the threshold of the Vatican to meet, as Secretary of State, with the Secretary of State of the Holy See.” Noting that the pope plans to visit the Holy Land in May, Kerry vowed to keep Francis informed on “what progress there may be in the peace process.”

ACLU raises questions about official KCC email TOPEKA, Kan. — The American Civil Liberties Union says an official email sent by a Kansas Corporation Commission employee discussing his religious beliefs may have opened the KCC to legal liability. Jared Bowes, a KCC media specialist, tried to put a veiled reference to Jesus into the com-

mission’s December newsletter, but it was edited out. Bowes then used his state-issued email address to send a message to his colleagues saying “King Jesus” is “the reason for the season.” Doug Bonney, legal director for the ACLU Foundation of Kansas, says while state employees have free speech rights, problems arise when religious statements are made using the state email system.  

Rodman apologizes for not helping missionary BEIJING — Former basketball star Dennis Rodman has apologized for not being able to help an American missionary detained in North Korea during his trip there to play in a game to celebrate the birthday of leader Kim Jong Un. Rodman told media that he “couldn’t do anything” as he arrived at Beijing airport on Monday. He said it wasn’t his fault and just wanted “to do some good stuff.” Rodman apologized last week for comments he made about Kenneth Bae, who has been detained for more than a year for what North Korea calls “antistate crimes.” He had implied that Bae was at fault in a CNN interview. Rodman led a squad of retired NBA players to North Korea for an exhibition game marking Kim’s birthday.
