Officials against elected boards BY JEBB JOHNSTON

Local officials are again pushing back against an effort to have all school board members chosen by popular vote in Mississippi. While county school boards are elected, many munici-

pal school boards, including Corinth, are not, and the Board of Aldermen wants to keep it that way. The board recently passed a resolution opposing any bills in the 2014 Legislature that would mandate elected school boards. “We’ve got a system that has

worked well for us and, as I see it, will continue to work well,” said Ward 1 Alderman Andrew Labas. At least one bill that would mandate elected school boards in every district is pending in the new session. A similar effort in the 2013 session did not suc-

ceed. House Bill 443, which would require the election of all school board members and establish a term of office of four years for all school board members, is pending before the House Education Committee. District 2 Rep. Nick Bain (D—Corinth)

said he has two amendments prepared — one that would specifically exempt Corinth from the law and another that would make the elected system optional in top-rated school districts. Please see BOARD | 2A

Initiative unveiled at summit BY JEBB JOHNSTON

A new spin on education continues to emerge in the Corinth School District. In a time in which the electronic task of “copy and paste” is considered an essential skill to know by third grade, a nottoo-distant future may see every student using a tablet or laptop as they explore new avenues of learning — possibly including the study of multiple languages. In an education summit on Thursday, the district unveiled its “eMerge” initiative — a range of programs including the recently announced early learning collaborative, a literacy initiative, curriculum enhancements and personalized learning, among others. “We’re rolling in what has worked in the past with what is working now and what we think education needs to look like in the future,” said Superintendent Lee Childress. Some of the initiatives are already happening in the classroom and some will roll out in

the next school year. He expects the changes to help motivate students. “If you personalize that learning,” the superintendent said, “if you blend that learning and you put that technology component in, it will create a sense of excitement, a sense of motivation. And while I might have before said, ‘I cant do this,’ I will now say, ‘Wow, I can do it.’ And that’s exactly what we have seen with the Excellence for All program.” The overall approach moves beyond merely acquiring knowledge and choosing an answer on a multiple-choice exam to actively applying what the student has learned. “If I have a great deal of knowledge but can’t apply it, it really doesn’t matter,” said Childress. The technology component that the district is considering would give every student an electronic device, either iPad or laptop, that can be used in the classroom with take-home opportunities for students in grades five through 12. Tablets

would go to the lower grades, including prekindergarten. Funding, as always, will be part of the equation. “We think we can do most of what we are talking about and not raise taxes,” he said, but a fund may be established to help provide some expanded opportunities for teachers. Curriculum changes in the works include launching Cambridge Primary for children ages five to 11, information communication and technology starter skills infused throughout pre-K through 12th grade, and increased access to world language enrichment programs. The latter would expose young children to other languages with a goal of having them master not only English but two other languages by the time they reach eighth grade. In a competitive world, “Look at how marketable that person will be,” said Childress. Corinth’s former superintendent, O. Wayne Gann, now chairman of the Mississippi Please see SUMMIT | 2A

The top kart drivers in the country will be getting down and dirty at the Crossroads Arena. Chase’n Race’n PRO Kart Tour is coming to the multipurpose facility for the first time on Jan. 31 and Feb. 1. The tour’s Rebel Shootout will see over 300 racers from 15 different states take part in two days of racing on a dirt track inside the building. “It’s going to be a fun event and we want to get as many people as we can because the tour wants to come back again,” said general manager Tammy Genovese during Wednesday’s monthly meeting of the arena board. “This is going to bring in a lot of out of town people,” added board chairman Dr. Hardwick Kay. Genovese informed the seven-person board dirt will be added to the facility on Monday and Tuesday with the track builder coming in on Wednes-

day. “It’s not a spectator sport, but the push for kids is Disney characters like Lightning McQueen will be here for photos and autographs,” said the general manager. There will be no charge for attendees to take photos of the characters. “This will be the tour’s first indoor event and we want people to come out and have a good time,” added Genovese. Tickets are $10 and $5. In other board business, the general manager told the board the facility got off to a solid start in 2014 with January being a good month. “There is going to be a down month here and there, but we are holding our own and aren’t digging into our reserves to survive,” she said. “We are staying above water without the city and county operating money … that’s a good sign,” added board member Penn Majors. Board member Thom Rogers was absent from the meeting.

VFW reaches out to needy Vietnam vet BY STEVE BEAVERS

WENASOGA — A veteran was in need. The Veterans of Foreign Wars stepped up to help. Vietnam veteran James Patey faced a tough situation. Storm damage had left his home with a leaky roof and complications from knee replacement surgery had landed the Purple Heart recipient in the nursing home. “Upon hearing the disaster of a VFW post member, we jumped in to help,” said VFW District Commander Jim Gay.

“It’s something we take very serious.” Following the encouragement of Mac Gilmore and donations by several veterans, the team of VFW members set out to replace the leaky roof. “District 9 Vice Commander Ben Baker worked diligently with all VFW Post and Military Order of the Purple Heart (MOPH) to acquire the much needed donations for the project,” said Gay.

Local 3rd graders decorate mailing boxes to send to soldiers BY KIMBERLY SHELTON

Imagination was in full bloom Wednesday as third graders from Biggersville and Rienzi elementary schools participated in one of LINK’s (Lead, Inspire and Nurture Kids) annual art projects. Markers, stickers, boxes and stencils littered the tables of the Rienzi Elementary School library as students collaborated in an effort to honor and encourage Mississippi soldiers. Using their art to communicate the gratitude in their hearts, the students decorated mailing boxes which will later be filled with personal items and shipped to our troops. Each year, local artists, High School art teachers and their pupils are commissioned to

work with students in area schools as part of the “Artists In the Schools” program. The project is funded through grants by the T.J. Pierce Foundation, C.A.R.E., Mississippi Arts Commission and Toyota. Contributing artists encourage the youth by helping them to realize their artistic visions and potential. Artist, Tony Bullard did his project at Glendale and Kossuth Elementary Schools and has worked with six different classrooms of third graders. Jennifer LeGoff (H.S. art teacher at Corinth) will be visiting Corinth Elementary School later this month to assist in their project. Crystal Bryde (H.S. art teacher for Alcorn County Schools) will be working with the 3rd

graders at Alcorn Central Elementary School at a later date. “We always do art projects, but this time, I thought we’d do something for someone else,” said Judith Lowery as she studied the colorful drawings and messages. “Stay safe and come home soon,” read one of the boxes. Hearts and rainbows were painted on another to remind those serving of brighter days ahead. Lowery revealed that she gained inspiration from a news article she read about people sending shoe boxes to soldiers serving overseas. She supervised the children as they added their own decorations and stylings to the packages, often stopping to admire their handiwork and

Crew fights New Albany fire JACKSON — A fire at a north Mississippi biofuels plant had died down enough by Thursday afternoon for a crew to get close and try to extinguish the remaining flames, authorities said. The fire has been burning since early Wednesday at the plant near New Albany, but no injuries were reported. There were also at least three explosions at JNS Biofuels, formerly known as North Mississippi Biodiesel. Mississippi Emergency Management Agency spokesman Brett Carr said in a telephone interview that firefighters hoped to extinguish the fire with foam. But, he cautioned, firefighters could be pushed back if the flames strengthen. He said it’s

not clear how long it will take to put it out. Plant manager Carl Harlin said that by Thursday afternoon the fire was limited to one site on the property. He estimates the damage could be in the millions. Classes were canceled Thursday as a precaution at schools in nearby New Albany, a town of about 8,000 people. There also was a voluntary evacuation order for about 50 homes. Carr said the fire began with an explosion Wednesday morning at the plant. He said there was a second explosion Wednesday afternoon and a third Thursday morning. Carr said the plant makes poultry-based biofuel, and officials believe chicken fat and glycerol

were burning. The cause of the initial explosion is not known. Carr said teams are in place to monitor the air for hazardous chemicals, but none had been detected. The voluntary evacuation order was issued because of smoke in the area. Authorities also said the fire shut down part of Highway 15, and an explosion damaged a power substation that temporarily knocked out electricity to parts of Tippah County on Wednesday. Two industrial businesses nearby were evacuated. North Mississippi Biodiesel was founded in 2005, according to records filed with the Mississippi Secretary of State’s office. JNS Biofuels was incorporated in 2011, the records show.

remedial college classes that do not earn credits; and the 2014 Education Week Quality Counts report rated the state an “F” on both K-12 student achievement and spending on education. “I believe we can do better … What I don’t want to forget is that our students

can achieve greatness,” said Wright. “They are no less smart than any other student in any other state. What they need are teachers and school leaders who are well prepared for instruction and who hold our students accountable for learning.” The summit is planned

to be an annual event to bring community members together for a discussion of where the district stands and where it is headed. (Editor’s note: Additional coverage of the summit will follow in future editions of the Daily Corinthian.)

bly dilute the diversity of the board. The bill also seeks to require all school districts with elected superintendents to hold an election on the question of switching from an elected to an appointed superintendent. The city board’s resolu-

tion, which was forwarded to the local legislative delegation, the lieutenant governor and the speaker of the house, asks for Corinth to be grandfathered from any such law or for the city board to have the option to call for a vote on opting out of the mandated election system.

Students Duke Peebles and Tucker Fields in Mrs. Susan Holt’s eighth grade English class at Alcorn Central Middle School practice their reenactment of a scene from “Jefferson’s Sons” by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley. The students are completing their final independent projects to finish the unit on this historical fiction book. Students were encouraged to develop their own ideas to conclude the book. Choices ranged from reenactment of scenes from the book to recreating the setting of the story, Monticello, in the popular game Minecraft.

Today’s Highlight in History:

On Jan. 24, 1942, the Roberts Commission placed much of the blame for America’s lack of preparedness for Imperial Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor on Rear Adm. Husband E. Kimmel and Lt. Gen. Walter C. Short, the Navy and Army commanders.

On this date:

In 1742, Charles VII was elected Holy Roman Emperor during the War of the Austrian Succession. In 1848, James W. Marshall discovered a gold nugget at Sutter’s Mill in northern California, a discovery that led to the gold rush of ‘49. In 1908, the Boy Scouts movement began in England under the aegis of Robert Baden-Powell. In 1924, the Russian city of Petrograd (formerly St. Petersburg) was renamed Leningrad in honor of the late revolutionary leader. (However, it has since been renamed St. Petersburg.) In 1943, President Franklin D. Roosevelt and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill concluded a wartime conference in Casablanca, Morocco. In 1963, a U.S. Air Force B-52 on a training mission crashed into Elephant Mountain in Maine after encountering turbulence and losing its vertical stabilizer; seven of the nine crew members were killed. In 1978, a nuclearpowered Soviet satellite, Cosmos 954, plunged through Earth’s atmosphere and disintegrated, scattering radioactive debris over parts of northern Canada. In 1984, Apple Computer began selling its first Macintosh model, which boasted a builtin 9-inch monochrome display, a clock rate of 8 megahertz and 128k of RAM. In 1989, confessed serial killer Theodore Bundy was executed in Florida’s electric chair.

Smith recalls time as Agri-Center director BY ANGELA STOREY

Buddy Smith is looking forward to having more leisure time on his hands as he retires later this month as director of the Prentiss County AgriCenter. After 12 years serving as Agri-Center director, he knows he’s going to miss the people he’s worked with and the many folks he’s come to know during the various events hosted at the AgriCenter along with the challenges of a job he’s thoroughly enjoyed. “But it’s time to go home,” he says, noting someone once told him he would know when the right time came for retirement — and the time feels right. As he looks back over the past 12 years he knows the Agri-Center has grown. Chancery Clerk Bubba Pounds stated that this was the best year financially in the history of the Agri-Center, he said. Take the 2013 Prentiss County Fair for example. The weather cooperated making for perfect ‘fair weather.’ The year 2013 also marked changing the fair from five days to three days and it proved to be a winning idea as last year’s fair attendance was the biggest crowd ever. Fair-goers appeared to embrace the idea of hav-

ing the carnival, tractor pull, go cart race and rodeo going on at the same time, offering something for everyone. “And the 2013 Farmers Markets was the best one we’ve had,” Smith said. “When the Farmers Market was first started at the Agri-Center I was told it would take several years to catch on.” Now the Farmers Market has apparently caught on because “It was a wonderful year,” Smith said, noting he has appreciated so much those who have faithfully sold their homegrown items and those who shop there to make the Farmers Market what it has become. Another successful event was the Master’s Quartet Homecoming held in November which saw its largest crowd ever. Some may not realize it, but many of the events held at the Agri-Center draw people from beyond Prentiss County and the great state of Mississippi. For instance, the gocart race had people in attendance from 10 different states. As a speaker at local civic club meetings, Smith has always tried to stress how important such events are not only to the Agri-Center but to Booneville and Prentiss County as well. The folks from out-of-state (even as far away as Omaha, Neb.) who come to these events

also spend money shopping, eating and buying gas. One downtown business owner shared with Smith that during one of the big events at the AgriCenter two couples visited her business and when they left they had spent over $1,000. And one local restaurant owner told Smith the biggest crowd the restaurant ever had was during another event held at the Agri-Center because many of those attending the event also ate at the restaurant. Another always popular event is Senior Citizens Day sponsored by Renasant Bank and held during the Prentiss County Fair. Over 300 people attended last year. Other events such as horse shows and Show and Trail 4-H Club shows have been crowd pleasers. As time went on during fair time, Smith and his wife, Josie, learned it was easier to take their camper and spend the week at the Agri-Center because the days’ work wasn’t completed till the wee hours of the morning and by then it was almost time to start again for the next day. And speaking of Smith’s wife, Josie, she has been his right hand during his Agri-Center endeavors. “I couldn’t have done it without her,” he says. Josie retired as a teacher at Hills Chapel at the

The Associated Press

JACKSON — The Mississippi House Thursday passed a bill meant to ensure teachers get a full paycheck in August, but school board leaders say they don’t believe the proposal is legal. The dispute is wrapped up in an effort by school boards and superintendents to roll back a 2012 legislative mandate that classes can’t start before the third Monday in August. Those who want schools free to start earlier have been using the paycheck problem to push lawmakers for repeal. House Bill 71, passed on a 120-0 vote, directs school districts to pay all employees in equal monthly installments. It’s meant to end problems created by a recent attorney general’s opinion saying that full August paychecks would violate the state Constitution’s ban on paying employees for work not yet performed. An amendment to the bill Thursday on the floor of the House also attempts to guarantee equal monthly paychecks for non-licensed employees including custodians, bus drivers and assistant teachers. But even

“You still pay people for time unworked and that’s a violation of the Constitution. Constitution trumps state law.”

making the Agri-Center a success and all the behind-the-scenes work it takes to pull off the events, not to mention the trouble shooting necessary to make sure the events run as smoothly as possible while underway. One of the best compliments he ever received was the time a guest at the Agri-Center inquired during a banquet about the red “concrete” floor. The floor the guest was referring to was actually red clay dirt in the arena — which Smith has spent a great amount of time readying to perfection for such events. Smith’s official retirement date is Jan. 31 and after that he and Josie have travel plans in their future. Taking a top spot on his list of priorities will be Josie’s ‘honey do’ list that sometimes got placed on the back burner due to work demands at the Agri-Center. He is looking forward to simply being at home in the Hobo Station community, seeing after their farm and spending time with family that includes their two daughters and sons-in-law, Lori and Rob Rogers and Molly and Joey Clark, and their three grandchildren. He wishes his successor, Johnny Cole, all the best because Smith hopes to see the Prentiss County Agri-Center continue to thrive in the coming years.

“If they don’t want to pay their school teachers, that’s their problem. The Legislature is saying they can.”

Mike Waldrop

John Moore

Executive director of the Mississippi School Boards Association House Education Committee Chairman John Moore, R-Brandon, said that amendment may not be legal. Non-licensed employees are treated as hourly employees, creating legal complications in trying to spread out their pay in equal installments. Typically, a teacher’s yearly contract begins Aug. 1, and they get their pay in 12 equal monthly checks, even though they don’t work during the summer. For a 187day contract, that works out to 16 days of work each month. But in 2014, schools can start Aug. 18. With 10 days of school and maybe three days of preparation, a teacher likely won’t have done 16 days of work. That would mean less than a full paycheck in August, although the remainder of the pay would be made up in following months. Last year, superintendents said they were

worried that employees could see a cash crunch. Mike Waldrop, executive director of the Mississippi School Boards Association, said Wednesday the group believes the proposed law can’t overcome the constitutional prohibition. “You still pay people for time unworked and that’s a violation of the Constitution,” he said. “Constitution trumps state law.” Moore said school boards and superintendents are trying to nitpick the proposed solution. He said Attorney General Jim Hood’s office has advised him that the proposal would solve the problem. “If the attorney general says it fixes it, it fixes it in my opinion,” Moore said. He said districts are trying to pressure lawmakers on the school start date. “At this point, they want the school start date back where it was,” Moore

One of the things she had looked forward to about retirement was no longer working in the school concession stand ... and then as life turned out she helped her husband in the concession stand at the Agri-Center. Josie’s work has included doing inventory and ordering concession supplies for every AgriCenter event, and much more. Smith notes all those who have worked at the Agri-Center during his tenure have helped with the success of the AgriCenter, and while he is reticent to name names for fear of omitting someone, he can’t help but mention Shelba Walker and Betty McVey who have been wonderful through the years. They have worked during fair time since the first fair was held at the Agri-Center in 1998. He also expressed thanks to Carolyn McCombs who has worked in concessions since 2003, and Junior Burns who has spent untold hours coordinating and working to make the go-cart races such successful events.

said. “If they don’t want to pay their school teachers, that’s their problem. The Legislature is saying they can.” Waldrop said districts are only trying to follow the law. “We want to see the teachers get paid,” he said. Even if the solution is legal, non-licensed employees may not get monthly installments.

Waldrop said that even before the legal opinion, his association advised districts that it’s only legal to pay those workers over the summer if the district withholds money from earlier paychecks, like a savings plan. Moore said lawmakers want a solution for non-licensed employees, but said Thursday’s amendment may not pass muster.

EMPHASIS ALWAYS ON THE SPIRITUAL I have recently written numerous articles on the spiritual nature of the kingdom of God. I make no apologies for this. It was (and is) my hope and prayer that students of the Word will cease to accept dramatic babblings of pseudo-events allegedly leading to the establishment of a physical kingdom on earth, but rather look back to the cross of Christ and accept the long standing terms of entrance into the already-established spiritual kingdom of God. (review Mark 9:1, Matthew 16:19, Acts 2:14-47) The Lord Himself did not emphasize the physical, and neither should we. Once He was told His mother and brothers were outside waiting to see Him. “But He answered and said to the one who told Him, ‘Who is my mother and who are my brothers?’ And He stretched out His hand toward His disciples and said, ‘Here are My mother and My brothers! For whoever does the will of My Father is My brother and sister and mother’ ” (Matthew 12:46-50) Again, He said, “You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.” (John 15:14) Along the same lines, Paul said, “For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh; but he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, not in the letter; whose praise is not from men but from God.” (Romans 2:28-29, and compare John 8:31-44) Again, Paul said, “For they are not all Israel who are of Israel, nor are they all children because they are of the seed of Abraham.” (Romans 9:67) Clearly obedience to the will of the Father is the foundation of a strong spiritual relationship. If we are “of faith” we are the children of Abraham. (Galatians 3:7) If we belong to Christ, we are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. (Galatians 3:26-29) And, yes, if we have obeyed Christ, we are in His kingdom over which He NOW reigns.

Corinth, Miss.

Chris Christie is more nimble than you think BY ROGER SIMON Chris Christie’s master plan is working. By making himself totally intolerable to Democrats, he is making himself somewhat acceptable to Republicans. A variety of Democratic mayors in New Jersey are now howling at Christie for being a bully and a creep. This is music to his ears. Christie, the Republican governor of New Jersey, wants to be the Republican nominee for president in 2016. But in the past, he has cooperated with Democrats and even rubbed shoulders with Barack Obama. This has helped Christie in the very early, largely worthless public opinion polls, but it has hurt him with influential Republicans. Republican fat cats wonder why they should bundle big dollars for Christie. Once elected, he could squander their tax dollars on things like feeding the hungry and housing the homeless. And ideological “movement” Republicans are tired of nominating candidates who slide to the left in order to get elected but then don’t get elected. This time, they want a far-right fire breather who will, at the very least, feed their sense of martyrdom. Christie has found a solution: He will get Democrats to hate him. He will get liberal talk show hosts to hate him. Then he will go to the Republican big shots and say, “Hey, if these goons hate me, how bad could I be?” The only flaw in his plan is that it is difficult to campaign for president from prison. Or while under indictment. Or even while under serious investigation. So Christie must be nimble. No, not physically. Physically, he is about as nimble as a Macy’s Thanksgiving float. He must be nimble politically. Which, actually, he is. Take his performance Sunday at the posh seaside abode of Home Depot co-founder Kenneth Langone, at what was billed as a “meet-and-greet with party donors” in North Palm Beach, Fla. Christie was asked when his current controversies might subside, and according to Politico, he replied, “I don’t know.” He also was asked by the deep-pocket crowd whether Social Security and other entitlement programs need to be means-tested. Millionaires and billionaires worry a great deal that middle-class Americans will get a dollar of Social Security they don’t really need and will waste it on a thing like their retirement or birthday cards for their grandchildren. According to Langone, Christie said he is “absolutely” for means-testing. OK, so that was two boxes checked; Democrats may continue to hound him, but he will stay loyal to his principles and, for example, pander to wealthy donors. But what if his current problems deepen and he has to occupy his time with depositions and testimony and producing years of records? Well, that was his best answer of all. Christie claimed that all 65,000 state government workers in New Jersey have “access to the governor’s stationery,” so there always has been the risk that somebody could do something “stupid.” How is Christie supposed to know? He is only the governor, not the state’s chief executive. Well, actually, he is the state’s chief executive. But now he’s got all this stationery to keep track of. Even if each state employee were issued just one ream, that would mean Christie would have to keep his eye on 32.5 million sheets of paper. It’s unfair. “In a government of 65,000 people, there are going to be times when mistakes are made,” Christie said in his news conference. “Mistakes were made.” Bridges were blocked. Traffic studies were faked. Reputations were ruined. But Christie was doing his job battling for the people of New Jersey, just as he will battle for the people of the United States if he is nominated and elected president. And if he is elected, some people may not get their Social Security and other entitlements. But he can absolutely guarantee they will get his stationery.

Prayer for today My Father, may I be careful of getting weary and missing the best through the need of rest. Intensify my desire for the songs and glorious ways, that I may not settle into dullness and slumber, while others pass on in the light. I pray for a keener sense of the possessions made possible by the deeds and cares of noble men and women. Amen.

State’s press to ‘roast’ Filbert, uh, Delbert Hosemann Far be it for a man whose birth certificate reads “Sidney Leo” to make fun of anyone’s name, but one has to admit that “Delbert Hosemann” is quite the moniker. Despite a stellar career as primarily a tax lawyer and a man with a truly impressive resume of civic and charitable work, Delbert Hosemann wasn’t exactly a household name. When he decided to seek the office of secretary of state in 2007, the New Orleans native who spent most of his childhood in Vicksburg was faced with the daunting task of building name identification for a name that was a little hard to say and a little difficult to remember. Enter a little lady named Dorothy Deavers sitting on a park bench who over the course of multiple TV commercials called Hosemann Filbert, Wilbert, Engelbert, Dilbert, Gilbert, and Eggbert - basically anything but Delbert – and the rest was history. “Ma’am, it’s Delbert” was Hosemann’s line and he delivered it repeatedly and well. Produced by Scott Howell & Company, the Hosemann TV ads were literally some

of the most memorable in Mississippi’s storied political history. For many, Sid Salter the ad introduced them Columnist to a serious man who didn’t take himself too seriously. Let’s hope Hosemann has held onto his sense of humor. Hosemann will be the main course during the 24th annual Mississippi Press Association Education Foundation Celebrity Roast on Feb. 7 at the Jackson Hilton. Hosemann was elected as secretary of state in 2007. He earned his undergraduate degree from Notre Dame, a law degree from Ole Miss, and a Masters of Laws in Taxation from New York University. He is a former partner of Phelps Dunbar. Hosemann also served in the U.S. Army Reserves. He has served as chairman of the board of Mississippi Blood Services and treasurer of the Jackson Medical Mall Association. He also served on the board of directors for Jackson

State University Development Foundation. Hosemann is an avid hunter and marathoner. He belongs to the National Rifle Association, Delta Wildlife Foundation, Ducks Unlimited, and the Mississippi Wildlife Federation. He has completed both the New York Marathon and the Boston Marathon and represented Mississippi in the Senior Olympics. The annual event is held under the auspices of the MPA Education Foundation, which was established in 1983 to provide internships and scholarships for aspiring journalists and grants for instructional programs at in-state universities and colleges. Over the last two-plus decades, the event has raised thousands of dollars to benefit the scholarship, internship and grant programs of MPAEF. Prior honorees during the three-decade history of the MPA roast have included Sen. Thad Cochran, former Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott, former Gov. Haley Barbour, Gov. Phil Bryant, Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves, Mississippi State University president Mark Keenum, former Lt. Gov.

Amy Tuck, the late U.S. Rep. Sonny Montgomery, Tupelo banker and College Board president Aubrey Patterson, former Mississippi Supreme Court Justice Reuben Anderson, journalists W.C. Shoemaker, Rick Cleveland and Bill Minor, the late Choctaw Chief Phillip Martin and the late entertainer Jerry Clower. “Roasters” include: Clarion-Ledger political writer Geoff Pender; State Rep. Steve Holland, D-Tupelo; Hosemann’s former campaign manager Casey Phillips; friend David Russell; and Pulitzer Prize-nominated Clarion-Ledger editorial cartoonist Marshall Ramsey. The 24th annual Roast to benefit the MPA Education Foundation will be held Jan. 30 at the Jackson Marriott Downtown. A reception will be held at 6 p.m.; dinner begins at 7 p.m. Tickets are $80 each or a table of eight is available for $600. For more information, access www.mspress. org or call 601-981-3060.

Fact-free liberals: Part IV One of the things that attracted me to the political left, as a young man, was a belief that leftists were for “the people.” Fortunately, I was also very interested in the history of ideas — and years of research in that field repeatedly brought out the inescapable fact that many leading thinkers on the left had only contempt for “the people.” That has been true from the 18th century to the present moment. Even more surprising, I discovered over the years that leading thinkers on the opposite side of the ideological spectrum had more respect for ordinary people than people on the left who spoke in their name. Leftists like Rousseau, Condorcet or William Godwin in the 18th century, Karl Marx in the 19th century or Fabian socialists like George Bernard Shaw in England and American Progressives in the 20th century saw the people in a role much like that of sheep, and saw themselves as their shepherds. Another disturbing pattern turned up that is also with us to the present moment. From the 18th century to today, many leading thinkers on the left have regarded those who disagree

with them as being not merely factually wrong but morally repugnant. And again, Thomas this pattern is Sowell far less often found among Columnist those on the opposite side of the ideological spectrum. The visceral hostility toward Sarah Palin by present day liberals, and the gutter level to which some descend in expressing it, is just one sign of a mindset on the left that goes back more than two centuries. T.R. Malthus was the target of such hostility in the 18th and early 19th centuries. When replying to his critics, Malthus said, “I cannot doubt the talents of such men as Godwin and Condorcet. I am unwilling to doubt their candor.” But William Godwin’s vision of Malthus was very different. He called Malthus “malignant,” questioned “the humanity of the man,” and said “I profess myself at a loss to conceive of what earth the man was made.” This asymmetry in responses to people with different opinions has been too persistent, for too many years, to be just a matter of

individual personality differences. Although Charles Murray has been a major critic of the welfare state and of the assumptions behind it, he recalled that before writing his landmark book, “Losing Ground,” he had been “working for years with people who ran social programs at street level, and knew the overwhelming majority of them to be good people trying hard to help.” Can you think of anyone on the left who has described Charles Murray as “a good person trying hard to help”? He has been repeatedly denounced as virtually the devil incarnate — far more often than anyone has tried seriously to refute his facts. Such treatment is not reserved solely for Murray. Liberal writer Andrew Hacker spoke more sweepingly when he said, “conservatives don’t really care whether black Americans are happy or unhappy.” Even in the midst of an election campaign against the British Labour Party, when Winston Churchill said that there would be dire consequences if his opponents won, he said that this was because “they do not see where their theories are leading them.” But, in an earlier cam-

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

paign, Churchill’s opponent said that he looked upon Churchill “as such a personal force for evil that I would take up the fight against him with a whole heart.” Examples of this asymmetry between those on opposite sides of the ideological divide could be multiplied almost without limit. It is not solely a matter of personality differences. The vision of the left is not just a vision of the world. For many, it is also a vision of themselves — a very flattering vision of people trying to save the planet, rescue the exploited, create “social justice” and otherwise be on the side of the angels. This is an exalting vision that few are ready to give up, or to risk on a roll of the dice, which is what submitting it to the test of factual evidence amounts to. Maybe that is why there are so many fact-free arguments on the left, whether on gun control, minimum wages, or innumerable other issues — and why they react so viscerally to those who challenge their vision.

Hagel orders review of nuclear force WASHINGTON — With public trust and safety at stake, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel ordered immediate actions Thursday to define the depth of trouble inside the nation’s nuclear force, which has been rocked by disclosures about security lapses, poor discipline, weak morale and other problems that raise questions about nuclear security. It amounted to the most significant expression of high-level Pentagon concern about the nuclear force since 2008, when then-Defense Secretary Robert Gates fired the top uniformed and civilian officials in the Air Force following a series of mistakes that included an unauthorized flight of nuclear-armed cruise missiles across the country. Hagel had said he was considering what may lay behind problems in the nuclear Air Force but his chief spokesman said Thursday that the defense secretary concluded urgent remedies were needed. “To the degree there are systemic problems in the training and professional standards of the nuclear career field, the secretary wants them solved,” the spokesman, Navy Rear Adm. John Kirby said. “To the degree there are gaps in our understanding or implementation of those standards, he wants them closed. And to the degree leaders have failed in their duties, he wants them

held to account.” Hagel summoned top military officials to a Pentagon conference, to be held within two weeks, to “raise and address” any personnel problems infesting the nuclear force, and he ordered an “action plan” be written within 60 days to explore nuclear force personnel issues, identify remedies, and put those fixes into place quickly.

Oversight panel: halt illegal collecting WASHINGTON — A government review panel warned Thursday that the National Security Agency’s daily collection of Americans’ phone records is illegal and recommended that President Barack Obama abandon the program and destroy the hundreds of millions of phone records it has already collected. The recommendations by the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board go further than Obama is willing to accept and increase pressure on Congress to make changes. The panel’s 234-page report included dissents from two of the board’s five members — former Bush administration national security lawyers who recommended that the government keep collecting the phone records. The board described key parts of its report to Obama this month before he announced his plans last week to change the government’s surveillance activities. In that speech,

Obama said the bulk phone collection program would continue for the time being. He directed the Justice Department and intelligence officials to find ways to end the government’s control over the phone data. He also insisting on close supervision by a secretive federal intelligence court and reducing the breadth of phone records the NSA can investigate. Phone companies have said they do not want to take responsibility for overseeing the data under standards set by the NSA.

Virginia AG joins marriage ban fight RICHMOND, Va. — Gay marriage moved closer to gaining its first foothold in the South when Virginia’s attorney general said Thursday that the state’s ban on same-sex matrimony is unconstitutional and he will join the fight to get it struck down. “It’s time for the commonwealth to be on the right side of history and the right side of the law,” newly elected Democrat Mark R. Herring said in a state that fiercely resisted school integration and interracial marriage in the 1950s and ‘60s. Republicans accused Herring of shirking his duty to defend the state’s laws after less than two weeks on the job, while gay rights activists exulted over the latest in a string of victories — this one in a conservative and usually hostile region of the country.

Man loses appeal of murder conviction JACKSON— The Mississippi Supreme Court refused Thursday to hear an appeal from a Lucedale man sentenced to life in prison without parole in the death of his wife. Julius Wesley Kiker was convicted in 2012 in a second trial for the shooting death of his wife, Renee Kiker, at their Lucedale home in 2002. Prosecutors say Kiker killed his wife during an argument. Authorities say Kiker was found standing over the woman’s covered body and holding a gun. Kiker said the couple had argued and he left to allow his wife to calm down. When he returned, Kiker said his wife had the gun, threatened to kill him and was shot herself during a struggle for the gun.

Craft brewers want to sell beer

“Our current structure puts local Mississippi breweries at a competitive disadvantage,” Quinby Chunn, owner of Southern Prohibition brewery in Hattiesburg, told a House Ways and Means subcommittee Thursday at the Capitol. Craft brewers are seeking a change in state law to allow the sale of canned or bottled beer at the breweries, but distributors say the current system works fine. Some of the companies distribute beer for the craft breweries as well as for big, out-ofstate corporations. Ann Magruder told lawmakers that her family’s distribution company on the Gulf Coast spends thousands of dollars on marketing for its craft brewing clients. For 80 years, Mississippi has had a “three-tier system” for getting beer from brewers to customers. The first tier is the brewery, the second is the distributor and the third is the store or restau-

rant that sells the beer. Magruder said that before Prohibition, there were only breweries and retailers, and retailers were often subject to intimidation. She said the three tiers help ensure a variety of beer is available. Brian Drennan of Capital City Beverages said his company distributes in 18 counties and its client list includes four Mississippi breweries along with larger ones from out of state. Drennan said the distributor spends “a disproportionate amount of resources” on the small breweries to help them put their products into more stores and restaurants. “We want them to be successful and want them to grow,” said Drennan, who also advocates keeping the three-tier system. Mississippi law also allows brewpubs to operate, but they can only sell their beer at the restaurant. Brewpubs cannot bottle or can their beer and sell it in stores.

JACKSON — Mississippi lawmakers are considering whether to take sides in a beer battle that pits small breweries against big distributors. The state’s eight craft breweries — seven that are already open and one set to open this summer — want permission to sell some of their beer where it’s made. Under current state law, craft brewers can provide samples on-site after people take brewery tours, but they can’t sell cans or bottles of their beer there. The products can only be sold in restaurants or stores.

Huckabee: Democrats seek female votes WASHINGTON — Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee told fellow Republicans on Thursday that rival Democrats were trying to win over female voters by promising them birth control and telling them “they cannot control their libido or their reproductive system without the help of the government.” Huckabee made the comment as he was making a pitch that the GOP needs to broaden its appeal and end its internal divisiveness. Huckabee, a favorite of Christian conservatives and a Fox News personality, told the Republican Party’s leaders and activists that purity tests within the party only shrink the ranks. His speech about expanding the appeal of the GOP, designed to whet the 168-member Republican National Committee’s appetite for a Huckabee 2016 campaign, won a quick rebuke from the White House over contraception. Asked about Huckabee’s comments, press secretary Jay Carney told reporters at the White House that it “sounds offensive to me and to women.” In private meetings and public speeches Huckabee has been offering a prescription for Republicans to expand their reach after losing back-to-back presidential contests. Chief among his recommendations is for the GOP to end the Republican-on-Republican fighting that has sometimes hurt his own political fortunes.

Notorious Lufthansa heist nets new arrest NEW YORK— More than 30 years after hooded gunmen pulled a $6 million airport heist dramatized in the hit Martin Scorsese movie “Goodfellas,” an elderly reputed mobster was arrested at his New York City home on Thursday and charged in the robbery and a 1969 murder. Vincent Asaro, 78, was named along with his son, Jerome, and three other defendants in wide-ranging indictment alleging murder, robbery, extortion, arson and other crimes from the late 1960s through last year. The Asaros, both identified as captains in the Bonanno organized crime family, pleaded not guilty through their attorneys and were ordered held without bail at a brief appearance in federal court in Brooklyn. The elder Asaro’s attorney, Gerald McMahon, told reporters outside court that his client was framed by shady turncoat gangsters, including former Bonanno boss Joseph Massino — the highest-ranking member of the city’s five organized crime families to break the mob’s vow of silence. Massino “is one of the worst witnesses I’ve ever seen,” McMahon said. He added that Asaro had given him “marching orders” that “there will be no plea and he will walk out the door a free man.” A lawyer for Jerome Asaro declined comment.

Bill would restructure marine resources JACKSON — Gulf Coast lawmakers have filed a bill to reorganize the Mississippi Department of Marine Resources. The agency was shaken by financial problems that led to the January 2013 firing of Bill Walker, who’d been executive director since 2002. Walker, two other former department employees and Walker’s son were indicted in November on federal corruption charges involving hundreds of thousands of dollars in public money. Sen. Brice Wiggins of Pascagoula, chief sponsor of the reorganization proposal, said Thursday that Senate Bill 2579 would mandate some changes already started by the current MDMR director, Jamie Miller. The bill would require the department to perform a yearly audit. It would set education and work experience requirements for

those hired in top administrative jobs. It also would give lawmakers some oversight of the department.

Horn Lake leaders look at ‘waver’ advertising HORN LAKE — A Horn Lake tax preparation business operator wants the city to suspend its ban on “waver” advertising for the tax season.

Usually temporary employees are hired to dress up and promote the business to passers-by. In Liberty Tax’s case, the “wavers” are dressed as the Statue of Liberty, in keeping with the business’ name. Horn Lake requires a permit for live advertising, with a maximum of four times a year, eight hours per occurrence, with a $20 fee each time. The ordinance also requires activity be no closer than

Efficiency spending depresses Hancock profit

Governor seeks 50,000 work visas

GULFPORT — Regional bank Hancock Holding Co. says profit in 2013’s fourth quarter fell 26 percent as it spent $17.1 million to improve efficiency. Hancock, which operates Hancock Bank in Mississippi, Alabama and Florida, and Whitney Bank in Louisiana and Texas, posted quarterly profit Thursday of $34.7 million, or 41 cents per share. That’s down from $47 million, or 54 cents per share, in 2012’s fourth quarter. Analysts polled by FactSet had estimated 56 cents per share, on average, excluding one-time efficiency costs. Hancock says it would have earned 55 cents per share, or $45.8 million, on that basis.

DETROIT — Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder asked the federal government Thursday to set aside thousands of work visas for bankrupt Detroit, a bid to revive the decaying city by attracting talented immigrants who are willing to move there and stay for five years. The Republican governor has routinely touted immigration as a powerful potential force for growing Detroit’s economy, saying immigrant entrepreneurs start many small businesses and file patents at twice the rate of U.S.-born citizens. “Let’s send a message to the entire world: Detroit, Michigan, is open to the world,” Snyder said at a news conference. The proposal involves EB-2 visas, which are offered every year to legal immigrants who have advanced degrees or show exceptional ability in certain fields.

LOS ANGELES — A second woman has come forward to claim that a California educator sexually abused her, saying she decided to speak out after watching a YouTube video by a woman who made similar accusations. Police in Riverside are investigating the allegations from both women, who say former middle school teacher and administrator Andrea Cardosa abused them while they were students in Riverside County. The second woman’s attorney said Thursday he filed claims, a precursor to lawsuits, against two school districts where Cardosa worked. The investigation and claims come days after a video was posted on YouTube showing the first woman confronting over the phone someone who identifies herself as Cardosa. Since then, Cardosa has resigned her job as an assistant principal and the video — which the woman sent to Cardosa’s employer — has been viewed nearly 1 million times.

Man should leave if he is unhappy






Dear Annie: I was married for 21 years, until my wife decided to call it quits. It’s been four years since the divorce. She is now dating someone from work. I suspect this coworker is the reason she left me, but I truly do not care anymore and have moved on with my life. For the past two years, I have been dating “Lois.” We don’t live together. We both have teenage children and don’t think living together is a good idea. But, Annie, every morning I ask myself: Should I stay, or should I go? I am 49 and Lois is 42. We often argue about stupid things. She quickly gets over these spats, but I don’t. So, tell me: How do I know whether it’s love or just companionship? — Need Advice Dear Need: If every morning you question whether you should stick around, the answer is no, you shouldn’t. You don’t mention that you love Lois or even enjoy her company. You seem to fight often in ways that disturb you. Being with someone who doesn’t make you happy is not the solution to loneliness. Dear Annie: My parents divorced after 15 years of marriage. My father remarried and passed away in 2004. My mother married a man and divorced him after 18 years. He,

Annie’s Mailbox too, has passed away. My mother believes that my aunts, uncles and cousins on my father’s side are still her relatives because they are related to me. She says she is still the aunt to my cousins on that side of the family. My brother adds to this dilemma by bringing Mom to some of these family gatherings where my paternal aunts ignore her and my cousins ask why she is there. She seems hurt by this. So is Mom still a part of my dad’s family? She has nieces from her second marriage, but she has never included me in those gatherings, and I don’t even know them. Are these unknown cousins relatives to me? — Child in the Middle Dear Child: Your mother is related only insofar as the relatives want her to be. If she was “aunt” to your cousins for 15 years, they may still think of her this way. However, it sounds as if they are not interested in being related any longer, in which case, they don’t have to be. The same goes for your stepcousins. Unless you are suddenly interested in getting to know them better,

you do not need to consider yourself related. Dear Annie: I’m writing in response to “Heart Full of Joy in Pennsylvania,” who divorced her cheating husband after 35 years and finally found happiness. I’ve been married for 36 years, and my husband has lived a secret life the entire time. I’ve known about it, but turned my head and kept up a good front so the children could have a happy childhood. Now the kids are grown, and I’ve decided I cannot live the lie anymore. I told the children that their dad has been unfaithful, but I didn’t disclose the details that he has been living “on the down low,” having casual sex with men at public parks and going to swingers clubs. My kids are hurt, and feel that their happy childhood was a lie. I often wonder if I am being selfish. After all, the marriage isn’t horrible, but it isn’t a true marriage. My counselor says the kids will come around eventually and will realize that I am much happier now that I’m out of my dysfunctional marriage. I just want to say that “Heart Full of Joy” has given me hope. Though I’m not interested in finding someone else right now, perhaps there is a man out there who will cherish me, honor me and truly love me. — Tired of Living the Lie

Not asking for bride’s hand is poor first step for groom DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend, “Chad,” proposed two months ago, but he didn’t ask my parents for my hand in marriage. My parents are upset about it. When I realized that Chad hadn’t gone to them, I asked him why. He said he was following what his father had done -- proposing first and then speaking to the parents. But Chad still hasn’t done it. In fact, he has yet to be around them at all. How do I get my boyfriend to speak to my parents? They are no longer as angry as they were, but they still would like to talk to him. I spend lots of time with Chad’s family, but I can’t get him to even go to lunch with mine. Dad said that if Chad doesn’t clear the air with him, he may not bother showing up at our wedding! What do I do, Abby? -- FIANCEE IN A FIX DEAR FIANCEE: You appear to be quite young. If I were you, I would take a step backward and see this from your parents’ point of view. It appears that Chad wasn’t entirely honest with you when he gave his reason for not talking to them. Could he be intimidated? When a daughter marries, most parents want to know something about the young man -- not only where he has been, but also what are his plans for the future, including where the two of you will be living and whether

he has a job. That Chad is hiding from them isn’t a good sign. When most couples become enAbigail gaged, the of Van Buren parents the bride and groom usualDear Abby ly get together and start to form a relationship. If your father hasn’t met your fiancé, it makes it harder for your parents to reach out to his. When the inlaws are friendly, it makes for a more harmonious marriage. As it stands, it appears Chad is not interested in having any relationship with your family. Frankly, I can’t blame your father for being upset about it. DEAR ABBY: My wife and I disagree on whether to tell our kids and friends how we met. When my wife and I met, she was underage. She was 16 and I was 21. We fell in love. We have been together for 24 years. We have two beautiful children and have made a wonderful life together. I love her as much today as the first time I met her. How should we answer people when they ask about how we met and fell in love? I know it was wrong and against the law. -- MIKE IN CALIFORNIA.

DEAR MIKE: You do not have to quote chapter and verse when someone asks a question. In a case like yours, you could say that you met when you were both quite young without going into the specifics. For a 21-year-old to SEE a 16-year-old girl is not against the law, as long as her parents approve and they are not having sex. The laws regarding statutory rape were enacted to prevent predators from preying on minors. DEAR ABBY: When I buy a sweater I usually get an extra button in a little clear baggie attached to the garment. Today, I bought a sweater with a piece of matching thread in the tiny plastic bag. Why do manufacturers insist on adding something to every article of clothing even if it is just a piece of thread? -- INQUISITIVE IN ILLINOIS DEAR INQUISITIVE: The thread is provided in case the garment needs to be rewoven in the event you get a hole in it or a tear. It’s a courtesy to the customer, so stop looking a gift horse in the mouth. (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). It is a well-known fact of human nature that if you make something difficult to obtain, most people will want it more. You are not “most people” and can see through trumped-up scarcity marketing ploys. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Stay confident in yourself and your abilities. It all works best when you stand with your head held high today. Don’t fold your cards. Whether you think they are good or bad, play them. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’re onto something big, and you can’t do it alone. Unfortunately, the right people are not paying attention. If you want to make a difference, you’ll have to wake someone up first. CANCER (June 22-July 22). A difference of sensibilities will come into play, especially between generations. What you consider to be common knowledge, someone else considers to be radical free thought.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It’s like you’re working in a void. You need a brainstorming group. You might not take any of their advice, and their opinions may not be so valid, either, but you’ll be better for hearing all of it. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may dream of creating something that catches on, becoming wildly popular in your demographic of choice. Just be warned: This will be a mixed blessing. It will put you in the position of having to re-create on demand. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll express a complex meaning with ease. It may feel as though you were always meant to deliver this message. And yet, don’t be surprised if you can’t say it the same way twice. It was a message of the moment. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). A central relationship will improve when you stop worrying about it so much. Worry delivers a bad energy to the subject of your concern. This is a time to let it go.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Usually, wanting to impress is a setup for disappointment. But right now it’s different. You want to impress someone, and then that person is really impressed by you -- a rare dynamic, indeed. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The trick is sharing in another person’s dream without sacrificing your own. Warning: It’s nearly but not totally impossible. If you’re going to attempt it, just make sure the other person isn’t a narcissist. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You stand to gain recognition, earn money and, best of all, make a difference in the lives of others. So what are you waiting for? Act on your vision. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Conservatism is a behavior of those who have a lot to lose. In an area in which you don’t have much at stake, don’t play it so safe. You can afford to be experimental, loose and free.

Browns name Pettine coach The Associated Press

CLEVELAND — After nearly a month of twists, turns and talk, the Browns found their man. Mike Pettine is Cleveland’s new coach. Buffalo’s defensive coordinator, who met with team officials for the first time just a week ago, finalized a five-year contract Thursday to become the Browns’ seventh full-time coach since 1999. The team fired Rob Chudzinski on Dec. 29 following one season and embarked on a winding search that ended with Pettine. “We wanted to be thorough

from the start,” CEO Joe Banner said, “and we interviewed as many people as we could. From that group, we hired the best individual for this job. Our players and fans are going to really enjoy Mike Pettine and his leadership style.” The 47-year-old Pettine, the son of a legendary Pennsylvania high school coach, spent one year with the Bills after four as Rex Ryan’s defensive coordinator with the New York Jets. With his clean-shaven head and no-nonsense approach, Pettine, who also was an assistant coach with Baltimore, is popular with players. He’ll

inherit a Cleveland team that went 4-12 this season after losing its last seven games. “To compete in the AFC North, you have to be willing to bloody your nose a little bit,” Pettine said. “That’s the mentality we’re going to take here. This is team is going to be built on toughness.” Pettine emerged as the favorite to become Cleveland’s fourth coach in six years as the Browns eliminated candidates and Denver offensive coordinator Adam Gase, considered the front-runner when the search started, told the team to move on without him.

His hiring ends a 25-day odyssey for the Browns. It was a search filled with rumors, denials, withdrawals and far too much drama for a franchise seeking stability. On Wednesday night, reports of a “mystery” candidate sent some Browns into a social-media frenzy, jamming Twitter timelines with all types of theories. Browns owner Jimmy Haslam said the team spoke with 10 candidates in person and spoke “many more” on the phone before zeroing in on Pettine, whom Cleveland considered for its defensive coordinator opening last year.

Marshall key as Ole Miss beats Vanderbilt The Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Marshall Henderson struggled with Vanderbilt’s sticky defense trying to keep the Mississippi guard under control. As usual, he hit the biggest shots of the night helping the Rebels pull out another key win. Henderson hit back-toback 3-pointers in an 11-point spurt where Mississippi took

control of a 63-52 win over Vanderbilt on Wednesday night after blowing a 13-point lead in the second half. “People think there’s no way he’s going to shoot that, but that’s what he does,” Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy said of Henderson. “He went and knocked down one and came back and hit another, and I think that’s what ultimately took the wind out of

their sails.” Vanderbilt coach Kevin Stallings certainly agrees after keeping his best defender, Dai-Jon Parker, on Henderson most of the night. “Dai-Jon did as good a job as you could do ... and the kid probably makes the two biggest baskets of the game,” Stallings said of Henderson. Henderson, who was 1 of 8 in the first half, finished with

11 points on 4-of-15 shooting for Ole Miss. Jarvis Summers had a team-high 16 points, Anthony Perez added 13 and Ladarius White 11. “He’s going to make shots so we keep giving it to him,” Summers said of Henderson.

4 first-timers MSU continues Hump dominance versus Auburn voted to start All-Star game The Associated Press

The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Stephen Curry, Kevin Love, Paul George and Kyrie Irving were voted NBA All-Stars Thursday, putting four first-time starters in the Feb. 16 game in New Orleans. Kobe Bryant was elected by fans to his 16th All-Star game, second-most in NBA history, but this one is shaping up as a kids’ game. Curry, perhaps the biggest snub last season, will join him in the Western Conference backcourt. Love passed Dwight Howard in the final days of voting and will start in the frontcourt along with Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant and the Clippers’ Blake Griffin. LeBron James was the leading vote-getter with 1.4 million and Miami teammate Dwyane Wade also was voted in Thursday. George, who has led Indiana to the league’s best record, and New York’s Carmelo Anthony are the other East forwards, and Irving will start at guard.

STARKVILLE — After more than 30 minutes sitting on the bench, Mississippi State’s Tyson Cunningham had every reason to come into the game cold and tentative. Instead, the senior guard made three huge plays that helped the Bulldogs hang on for an 82-74 victory over Auburn on Wednesday night. Mississippi State (13-5, 3-2 Southeastern Conference) led by 10 points midway through

the second half before Auburn rallied and Chris Denson’s layup cut it to 59-58 with 4:35 remaining. But the little-used Cunningham scored the next five points — and then took a charge on the other end — to help the Bulldogs hold on for the victory. “It speaks volumes about Tyson as a person and being prepared,” Mississippi State coach Rick Ray said. “He’s the one guy on our team who

is always in the gym working on his shot, working on his game. So when you work like that, you’re able to come into a pressurized situation and have success.” Roquez Johnson led the Bulldogs with 18 points while Colin Borchert added 17. Johnson made 4 of 7 shots from the field, but did most of his work on free throws, hitting 10 of 16 Cunningham’s five minutes on the court were argu-

ably the most important. The former walk-on is averaging just 1.5 points per game, but he made two free throws and then nailed a 3-pointer from the corner to push the lead back to 64-58. A few seconds later, he stood his ground when Auburn’s KT Harrell slashed toward the basket, drawing the charge. Auburn never threatened again. Please see MSU | 11A

Senior Bowl a perk for those players who stick around The Associated Press

MOBILE, Ala. — Being a senior NFL prospect does have some perks. While many of the likely top picks are underclassmen, their slightly older counterparts get an expenses-paid week at the Senior Bowl to showcase their talents before

a few hundred NFL coaches, executives and scouts plus the chances to make a good impression in face-to-face meetings. Saturday’s game won’t feature three top-5 picks like 2012, when Eric Fisher, Lane Johnson and Ziggy Ansah catapulted into that rarefied

air. The weeklong audition could make some prospects extra money when the draft comes around in May. “I do think you’re going to see some players maybe that were second- or third-rounders that could elevate into the first round, because they’re seniors and that reliability

and the willingness to compete and those sorts of things are going to be an easier sell,” said Phil Savage, the game’s executive director and a former general manager of the Cleveland Browns. Please see

â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are going to know these players better than the junior who just declared, who theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to figure out in the next three months.â&#x20AC;? The game has opened its doors the past two years to juniors who have graduated like Alabama linebacker Adrian Hubbard. Potential No. 1 pick Jadeveon Clowney and North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron even took in a Tuesday practice. Clowney was among the record 102 underclassmen who declared for the draft. He, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, Clemson receiver Sammy Watkins and Auburn left tackle Greg Robinson are among the potential Top-5 selections in that group. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get plenty of chances to impress NFL teams before the draft, including the combine. They just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get to do it in Senior Bowl practices with the bleachers and sidelines packed with potential employers watching matchups like Baylor guard Cyril Richardson going against Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We concern ourselves with the guys on our list that come out to compete,â&#x20AC;? said Jacksonville Jaguars coach Gus Bradley, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading the South team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With the juniors coming out now, it places much more emphasis on this opportunity there. There are so many evaluations that take place that you can come here and see a lot of guys in a three-day period. That partâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great.â&#x20AC;? The Senior Bowl has averaged 10 first-rounders over the past nine drafts. The NFC Championship game between San Francisco and Seattle featured quarterback alums Colin Kaepernick and Russell Wilson.

Auburn (8-8, 0-5) has lost five straight. Harrell led the Tigers with 24 points and Tahj Shamsid-Deen added 17. Mississippi State has beaten Auburn 13 out of the last 14 times at Humphrey Coliseum. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been an agonizing three weeks of basketball for Auburn, which has lost all five of its SEC games. All of them have been competitive. The Tigers jumped out to an 8-0 lead and led for most of the first half before things fell apart. Mississippi State went on a 20-4 run to turn a 21-14 deficit into a 34-25 advantage by halftime. Craig Swordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s steal and dunk with just three seconds left in the half finalized the impressive rally. Borchert had 11 first-half points, including three 3-pointers, which were critical in helping the Bulldogs pull out of the early hole. Borchert and Johnson helped Mississippi State shrug off a tough offensive night for Sword and Gavin Ware, the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top two scorers.

Aaron Jones hit a jumper putting the Rebels ahead to stay with 5:48 to go the first of 11 straight points. Henderson fed a pass to Perez for a layup. Then Odom lost the ball on the sideline leading to a scramble that ended with Henderson hitting a 3-pointer. Henderson then hit a second consecutive 3, pushing the lead to 55-46 with 3:57 left, and celebrated with a big fist pump in front of the Vanderbilt student section that had been booing him all night long when he touched the ball. The Rebels easily finished off the win. Hendersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back-to-back 3-pointers were the highlight of the night for the senior guard who came in as the SECâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best 3-point shooter

and was named the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s player of the week on Monday. He forced overtime here last season from about 30 feet out had trouble connecting Wednesday night. Henderson also missed a shot just after he crossed mid-court that bounced off the rim before the halftime buzzer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He hit some big shots at some crucial moments in the game that definitely gave them the momentum they needed to win,â&#x20AC;? Odom said. The first half was sluggish and ugly with Ole Miss failing to take advantage of a 4-minute scoring drought by Vanderbilt and plenty of sloppy turnovers by the Commodores. The poor play continued into the second half as both teams combined to hit only 3 of their first 12 shots.

College basketball Monday menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s games

OLE MISS Fuller had nearly as many turnovers (four) as he had points (five), and Parker finished with two more turnovers than points (two). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not a good enough team to survive that,â&#x20AC;? said Stallings, who has no other options at guard with only seven scholarship players. The Rebels took a 29-20 lead into halftime and went up 33-20 in the opening minutes of the second half. But after a first half when Vanderbilt shot 29.2 percent, the Commodores hit nine of their first 17 in the second half. When James Siakam scored underneath with 6:10 left, that gave Vanderbilt its first lead since 3-0 at 46-45. But then the Commodores went cold as Jones missed a pair of free throws.


overall and leave Memorial Gym with back-to-back wins in a place where they had won in only six of their first 55 visits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you hold a Vanderbilt team to 52 points in this building, I think we did a pretty good job of executing the scouting report, staying attached to their shooters,â&#x20AC;? Kennedy said. Vanderbilt (9-8, 1-4) just couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t overcome the Rebelsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 44-40 edge on the boards for a 15-8 edge in secondchance points, and Ole Miss turned the Commodoresâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 17 turnovers into 16 points. Rod Odom scored a gamehigh 18 points for Vanderbilt. Damian Jones had 14 and 10 rebounds. Point guard Kyle


Maddux began his big league career with the Chicago Cubs from 198692, winning the first of his four Cy Young Awards in his final season at Wrigley Field. He was with the Braves from 1993-03, winning Cy Youngs in his first three seasons in Atlanta, then returned to the Cubs from 2004-06. He also played for the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres from 200608. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel good about it, I spent half my career in Chicago and half of my career in Atlanta,â&#x20AC;? Maddux said during a news conference in Arlington, Texas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love both places. Obviously, I feel like I had more success as a Brave. We did get a World Series there, but I kind of came up a Cub. For me, I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pick. I really couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. ... So Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to go in neutral, I guess.â&#x20AC;? Hall President Jeff Idelson said a logo makes sense for those â&#x20AC;&#x153;whose most compelling contributions clearly took place with one teamâ&#x20AC;? and not having a team logo is â&#x20AC;&#x153;equally acceptableâ&#x20AC;? for those whose careers were

built significantly among multiple teams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Regardless of the selection, a Hall of Famer belong to every team for which he played or managed, as well as every fan who followed his career,â&#x20AC;? Idelson said. La Russa managed the Chicago White Sox (197986), Oakland (1986-95)

and St. Louis (1996-11), winning World Series titles in 1989, 2006 and 2011. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Chicago White Sox gave me my start in the game as a big league manager for my first eight seasons in my 33-year managerial career,â&#x20AC;? La Russa said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In Oakland, we recorded four first-

place finishes in 10 years, winning three pennants and a World Series. And in St. Louis, our clubs won three pennants and two titles in 16 years. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the totality of the success of each of those three teams that led me to Cooperstown, so I am choosing to not feature a logo so that fans of all clubs

can celebrate this honor with me.â&#x20AC;? Torre managed the Yankees from 1996-07, winning Series titles in 1996 and from 1998-00. He also managed the New York Mets (1997-81), Atlanta (1982-84), St. Louis (1990-95) and the Dodgers (2008-10). â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I became the

manager of the New York Yankees, it was an opportunity to realize my lifelong dream of winning the World Series,â&#x20AC;? Torre said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were fortunate enough to succeed in our first season in 1996, and in the years that followed, we wrote some great new chapters in Yankee history.â&#x20AC;?

Some pioneers of digital spying have misgivings The Associated Press

SAN JOSE, Calif. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Former federal prosecutor Eric Friedberg conducted the first courtapproved email wiretap nearly 20 years ago while investigating an international conspiracy to sell fraudulent cellphones. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was entirely novel. Even email was new,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;CompuServe, the provider, had no way to comply. They had to build a new port.â&#x20AC;? But today, Friedberg, an Internet intelligence pioneer who describes himself as â&#x20AC;&#x153;extremely pro-law enforcement,â&#x20AC;? is among a growing number of former national security and law enforcement officials who are questioning the current scope of the National Security Agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s data-gathering programs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a legitimate public policy debate about whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth a societal cost of having a permanent record of every personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s telephone

calls for a long time in a single place,â&#x20AC;? says Friedberg, who grapples with this. Sometimes, he says, peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s freedom â&#x20AC;&#x153;is protected by the difficulty that law enforcement has in obtaining records. If they can look at anything at the push of a button, abuses are more possible.â&#x20AC;? Last June, a series of news reports based on classified documents provided by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden began documenting government surveillance programs that included spying on friendly foreign leaders, analyzing email and Internet use, and gathering phone records of millions of Americans. The disclosures triggered protests, congressional hearings and dozens of recommendations to limit broad sweeps of data. Last week, President Barack Obama adopted some of those, calling for an end to gov-

ernment control over vast amounts of phone data. Instead, Obama said, the telephone service providers or a third party should keep the bulk records, â&#x20AC;&#x153;with government accessing information as needed.â&#x20AC;? But he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go nearly as far as a consortium of former NSA staffers and intelligence agents had recommended in their own January letter to Obama asking him to dramatically limit government surveillance. One of those former staffers, Thomas Drake, says it is a â&#x20AC;&#x153;heavy burdenâ&#x20AC;? to have broken new ground with digital-surveillance software and techniques decades ago only to see those tools now being used to collect email, Internet use, credit card and cellphone data from innocent Americans as part of a system he considers unconstitutional. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wake up at night in a cold sweat just thinking about whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been un-

leashed,â&#x20AC;? he says. Drake was part of a team in the late 1990s that developed a system to collect and analyze billions of electronic records to identify potential terrorist plots. But unlike current practices, he says, the system created back then would have kept U.S. citizensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; data private through encryption that could be unscrambled only with a judicial order. The system was never used, he says. Instead, the NSA adopted a more invasive intelligencegathering program, much of which became public knowledge through Snowdenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leaks. In their recommendations, the former spooks urge the administration to have the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, which oversees the NSAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s secret surveillance programs, make all its rulings public. They also want to outlaw secret searches and see effective whistle-blower protec-



tions for national security employees. Obama said that some FISA rulings are being declassified and that some additional restrictions will be imposed on what can be searched. With regard to whistle-blowers, however, Obama said individuals who publicly disclose classified information may endanger the nation. Drake, who started working for the NSA as a contractor in 1989 and a staffer 2001, disclosed an electronic espionage program that he saw as invasive in 2002. He was indicted under the Espionage Act, but the felony charges were dropped before trial. He was found guilty in 2011 on a lesser charge and sentenced to a year of probation and community service.

vances at the agency. He blames officials for overstepping the bounds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel bad about it,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The technology side was something I had to work on in order to solve foreign threats. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like saying you would never have invented the pistol because it might be used to kill people.â&#x20AC;? By no means are all former intelligence agents troubled â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or taken aback â&#x20AC;&#x201D; by the recent disclosures. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anything that surprised me? No, not really,â&#x20AC;? Tim Sample, a former CIA analyst who worked on Capitol Hill with the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, says with a laugh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am very confident and comfortable with the fact that everything has been done within a legal framework that was approved by the executive branch, the legislative branch and the judicial branch.â&#x20AC;?

SAN ANTONIO â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Rep. Paul Ryan on Thursday told Texas business leaders eager for changes to immigration laws that House Republicans will tackle reform in pieces and ruled out negotiations with the Senate on its comprehensive measure. The Wisconsin Republican didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t offer a timetable ahead of next weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s GOP House caucus annual retreat, where Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, has said immigration will top the agenda. Supporters of an immigration overhaul are renewing hopes that 2014 could bring the first sweeping changes in decades. Ryan expressed optimism at a luncheon hosted by the San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce but reiterated an insistence among GOP lawmakers that reforms happen piecemeal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just say itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eight bills â&#x20AC;&#x201D; I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know. These will represent a smart approach,â&#x20AC;? Ryan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to get into a situation where we end up with some big 1,000page bill. But we do realize there are things that have to be sequenced.â&#x20AC;? The Senate last year passed a comprehensive,

bipartisan bill that addressed border security, provided enforcement measures and offered a path to citizenship for the estimated 11 million immigrants living in the United States illegally. Ryan made it clear that if the Republican-led House passes a handful of immigration bills, it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enter talks with the Democratic-led Senate on its legislation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to enter into a process that entertains the idea of taking the Senate bill. So we wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t what we call â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;conferenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; with the Senate bill. So weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to do it our own way,â&#x20AC;? he said. President Barack Obama has signaled heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s open to a piecemeal approach but has said all the components must be done in the end. Ryan said Boehner will lay out principles that will include border security and enforcement of immigration laws â&#x20AC;&#x201D; an area where Ryan says Republicans â&#x20AC;&#x153;have a hard time trustingâ&#x20AC;? Obama. Ryan, who heads the House Budget Committee, favors a way for immigrants living in the country illegally to â&#x20AC;&#x153;come out of the shadowsâ&#x20AC;? without granting amnesty.

Pray for wisdom, understanding UConn professor Living in a town where there are two prison locations gives me the opportunity of meeting and working with some of the inmates. Having the opportunity of judging Christmas Decorations at the federal site gives me a new understanding of how brilliant some of these people are. They can take almost nothing and make something beautiful out of it. Their ingenuity and talents are well above many living on the outside of those walls. In one instance I was able to work with a state inmate in preparing for our annual Christmas Parade. I asked him a little about himself and what he did to serve prison time. His answer, “I was very,

very stupid. I have a masters degree in education and had a great Gary t e a c h Andrews ing situation until Devotionals s o m e o n e convinced me I could sell drugs and become rich. Like a fool I tried it one time and got caught and now I can never again teach in any school system anywhere.” There are so many people behind prison walls in this same type situation. They were looking for instant gratification and quick riches but instead find a lifetime of misery and are serving time for stupid mistakes. Is this what the world

is telling you today? Are you looking for quick fixes of problems and all of us know very well that our society has plenty of them to share? All the answers to our problems are found in the Bible if we would look for them. In Proverbs 16:16 it says, “How much better to get wisdom than gold, to choose understanding rather than silver!” Good opportunities and bad opportunities present themselves to us each and everyday. We are to be wise and choose accordingly to the way the Lord would have us to go. In everything, present your needs to the Lord through prayer and He will answer. Talk to Him on a daily basis, and stay away from the quick fixes and the get rich schemes that

will land you behind bars and take away all of your freedoms. Prayer: Lord God, thank you for a new day. I pray that you will lead me in the direction that You want me to go and help me get the world behind me. Amen. (Suggested daily Bible readings: Sunday - 1 Corinthians 2:6-8; Monday - Proverbs 3:13-26; Tuesday - Galatians 3:10-14; Wednesday - Isaiah 1:1620; Thursday - 1 John 3:4-10; Friday - Ephesians 6:10-18; Saturday Psalm 33:17-22.)

Egypt’s Christian minority rallies behind charter The Associated Press

AZIYAH, Egypt — Hymns echoing from the new church in this village in Egypt’s southern heartland could be heard well after sundown, a reminder of the jubilant mood as Aziyah’s Christian residents voted on a new constitution. Outside in the dusty streets, volunteers hurriedly arranged for buses to transport voters to polling stations before they closed on Wednesday night. In past elections, Islamists used fear or intimidation to stop Christians from voting against them. This time around, Aziyah’s Christians faced no obstacles on their way to the ballot box. “I cast my ballot as I pleased. I am not afraid of anybody,” said Heba Girgis, a Christian resident of the nearby village of Sanabu, who said she was harassed and prevented from casting a vote against the 2012 Islamist-backed constitution. “Last time I wanted to say no. I waited in line for two hours before the judge closed the station.” “This time we said ‘yes’ and our opinion matters,” Girgis added as she walked home with a friend after casting her vote. “This is for our children, for all those who died and suffered. Our word now carries weight.” The busy winding alleys of Aziyah and other villages with large Christian populations in the southern province of Assiut were in sharp contrast to

the dimmed streets and deserted polling stations of neighboring hamlets, mostly populated by supporters of ousted Islamist President Mohammed Morsi — a testimony to a boycott organized by the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist groups against the military-supported constitution. In Assiut, the birthplace of most of Egypt’s Islamist groups, and neighboring Minya, the campaign was particularly strong against the charter, a heavily amended version of a constitution written by Morsi’s Islamist allies and ratified in 2012. The new document would ban political parties based on religion, give women equal rights and protect the status of minority Christians. It also gives the military special powers to name its own candidate as defense minister for the next eight years and bring civilians before military tribunals. Christians number nearly 2 million of the 5 million voters in the southern provinces of Assiut and Minya, almost four times the national average. In Aziyah, which prides itself as the “capital” of Coptic Christians in the south, getting out the vote in support of the constitution was a serious enterprise. “For the Copts, the responsibility these days doesn’t permit for any apathy,” said Muntassir Malek, one of Aziyah’s most ardent get-outthe-vote mobilizers and founder of its new threestory church, a rarity in

Egypt, where easier access to permits for building churches is at the heart of the Christian minority’s demands. During the two-day referendum, security and army troops deployed heavily in the south, where daily protests by Morsi supporters were particular violent. More than 15,000 troops fanned out across the two provinces, and sandbags were erected outside a number of polling stations. There were frequent helicopter runs and flyovers by F-16 jets. As helicopters hovered over the heads of voters Wednesday in the Christian village of Kunbuah, a loud cheer went up. “Thank you, el-Sissi!” the crowd shouted, referring to the country’s increasingly popular military chief, Gen. Abdel-Fattah elSissi. The majority of the voting in Assiut and Minya has been driven by Christians, election monitors said. “Christians are the No. 1 voters,” said monitor Ezzat Ibrahim, adding that turnout overall has been far lower in the south, where support for Morsi was strongest during his presidential bid — a reflection of the Islamist boycott. Tensions, not new between Islamists and Christians, took a turn for the worse after the Islamists’ rise to political prominence following the ouster of longtime autocrat Hosni Mubarak. Determined to institute Islamic laws in legisla-

tion and way of life, the Islamists have alienated Christians — and deepened suspicions that a more Islamic state would only aggravate Christians’ longstanding complaint that they are treated as second-class citizens. “This is a referendum that will restore Egypt to the Egyptians,” said Eva Habil, the 59-year old former mayor of Kunbuah. “Today, because the state provided me with security and protection, I can go out and cast my vote without fear. You will find all are out. This is my army ... protecting me. “ In Kunbuah’s tiny church, Father Philemon exhorted a group of female parishioners to vote in the referendum, calling it a “sacred duty.” Primarily, Christians are demanding a law that enshrines their right to build churches without the restrictions that have long forced them to build make-shift houses of worship, many of which have been torched by proMorsi protesters as part of the backlash against his removal from office. In Aziyah, sandwiched between two strongholds of Islamists, there are five churches built without permits, community organizer Malek said. The new constitution provides that such a law be drafted within a year, Malek said. In addition, Christians have also received reassurances that their longstanding complaints that they are denied high posts in government and the military would be addressed.

delves into daily life and spirituality The Associated Press

NEW HAVEN, Conn. — University of Connecticut Professor Bradley Wright has all types of questions for his research: Did you pray in the last 24 hours? To what extent are you feeling nurtured or angry with God? Do you feel a sense of purpose right now? And he’d like the answers in real time, launching a website that sends texts to smartphones that it’s time for participants to take the twice-daily survey. It’s part of an ambitious look by Wright and other researchers into the role of spirituality in the daily lives of Americans and its links to well-being. Wright is hoping the effort will shed light on a wide range of issues: Do people feel closer to God or more distant after they’re on Facebook? How did attending church service affect them? Does spirituality help with social isolation? Does amount of sleep affect spiritual awareness? “In general I think that over the coming years this will produce a number of findings that I think will help redefine how we understand day-to-day spirituality,” Wright said. Wright, an associate professor of sociology, is overseeing to gather data for researchers to study. Participants fill out brief questionnaires for two weeks, answering a range of questions on health to volunteer work at church or a charity. “It just opens a whole new category of data about spirituality, personal growth, personal characteristics that people value,” Wright said. “We’re giving people a chance to take a twoweek snapshot of their life. This is just an interesting way for people to learn about themselves.” Kyndria Brown, a 50-year-old bookkeeper from Madison, Conn., who participated in the study, said she learned that she thought more about God when she was alone and feeling sad. “But when I was with other people I tended to not think in a spiritual way,” she said. Brown, who is Episcopalian, said participating

in the project prompted deeper questions about her spirituality, admitting that is scary but ultimately rewarding. “It makes you question the very premise of why you’ve chosen to be spiritual,” she said. “It’s forcing me to face myself and I appreciate that kind of a challenge. This program was pivotal in making me explore that concept.” Many studies have been conducted of Americans’ religious and spiritual beliefs and their effects on health and other matters, but Wright said they mainly rely on one-time surveys and personal observations. He said SoulPulse is the first to use to use cellphones to measure spirituality as it unfolds over time in natural settings. People are often categorized as believing in God or not, or being spiritual or not, “but it could be that people’s spiritual attitudes and beliefs vary from day to day,” Wright said. Participants are recruited through social media, news sites and word of mouth. They don’t need to be religious and for sampling purposes, atheists and agnostics are actively recruited, Wright said. Researchers will have access to the data but names are removed and responses are confidential. The results so far from about 250 people are showing people feel much more spiritual when they’re walking, out in nature and at a religious service and the least spiritual when they’re watching television or on the computer, he said. The real-time nature of the approach quickly became apparent. One of the lowest scores for spiritual awareness came from a parent watching the trouncing of her son’s soccer team Keith Anderson, a video assistant at UConn, was feeling especially grateful to God when he received a text for the survey as he waited in line to meet President Obama after UConn women won the national basketball championship last year. “I just thought that was really amusing,” Anderson said.

Catholic students join anti-abortion march WASHINGTON — Thousands of high school and college students from Catholic schools around the country are in Washington to demonstrate against abortion on this 41st anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision. March for Life President Jeanne Monahan says many of them traveled hundreds of miles on buses and slept overnight on gym floors to march from the Washington Mall to the Supreme Court on one of the coldest days of the year. Wednesday’s march follows a Catholic youth rally and Mass celebrated by Washington Cardinal Donald Wuerl. The Archdiocese of Washington says it’s meant “to encourage the youth participating in the national March for Life in their witness as disciples of Christ and promoters of the Gospel of Life.” Monahan says the young

marchers’ enthusiasm inspires her to lead them through what was forecast to be snow and sub-zero wind chills.  

Baptists to pay $12.5 million in abuse ruling ORLANDO, Fla. — A Florida jury has awarded $12.5 million in damages to a young man who was sexually abused by a Baptist minister when he was a child. But an attorney for the Florida Baptist Convention said on Tuesday that the organization would appeal the ruling from a jury in Lake County, northwest of Orlando. Attorney Gary Yeldell says the convention is confident that an appellate court will overturn the ruling. He says the minister was an independent pastor and not supervised by the convention. The jury verdict was returned on Saturday. An attorney for the man, who is remaining anonymous, says the jury understood the “devastating” impact of the

abuse. The young man is now in his 20s and attending college.

Chicago archdiocese hid decades of sex abuse CHICAGO — Internal documents reveal how the Archdiocese of Chicago tried for decades to contain a mounting scandal over child sexual abuse by priests. That includes moving accused priests from parish to parish and assigning others to watch them around children. Many went on to abuse again. Former Cardinals John Cody and Joseph Bernardin often approved the reassignments. The documents were turned over to victims’ attorneys and were posted online Tuesday. They cover only 30 of the at least 65 clergy for whom the archdiocese says it has substantiated claims of child abuse. Victim attorneys say they show that the archdiocese concealed the abuse for decades.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will meet with Pope Francis at the Vatican as part of a European trip scheduled for March. The White House says Obama “looks forward to discussing with Pope Francis their shared commitment to fighting poverty and growing inequality” during their meeting. Obama had an audience with the previous pope, Benedict XVI, in 2009. At that time, the Vatican underscored the deep disagreement between them on abortion. The March 27 meeting with Francis will follow a nuclear security summit hosted by the Netherlands and an economic summit in Belgium.
