Former Wurlitzer property to be revitalized BY JEBB JOHNSTON jjohnston@dailycorinthian.com

The city of Corinth is planning to revitalize a prime spot in the industrial park with hope of bringing new jobs to the city. The city-owned Wurlitzer property is the focus of the plan, which would include removal of the industrial building. Officials believe removing the dilapidated

City wants to use site to recruit new industry industrial building will improve the marketability of the site. “The Wurlitzer property is probably some of the best industrial property that I have seen in Corinth,” said Mayor Tommy Irwin. About six months ago, he met

with FCA, which occupied the Wurlitzer building, to discuss the possibility of FCA moving to the Gateway building. A manufacturer of wooden containers with Caterpillar as its largest customer, FCA agreed to make the move. The building formerly occu-

pied by the Gateway Corporation “was a great facility that was not being used,” said Irwin, “and it’s been a great match for the owners of Gateway, us and FCA.” He said the cleaned up Wurlitzer site will serve as “skin in the game” to help the city at-

tract industry. Environmental assessments of the property will be forthcoming, and the building would then be torn down. The city is looking at a brownfield grant to assist with the environmental process, but Irwin said the city can handle the other costs. Please see WURLITZER | 3A

Corinth Machinery comes down BY JEBB JOHNSTON jjohnston@dailycorinthian.com

With the hope of preservation now past, a portion of the Corinth Machinery building was taken down for safety reasons Saturday morning. Its profile, visible for many years from various points downtown, is now mostly gone. “There was so much collateral damage when the straight-line wind came in that there’s just no salvaging it,” said co-owner Trey Albright. The storm that brought severe winds in the early morning of Jan. 21 caused a large portion of the building to collapse. It suffered another collapse later in the week during heavy rains. “Another big section of the roof and side wall fell in,” he said. A track hoe was used early Saturday to take much of the building, including the front area where collapse appeared imminent, down to the first floor level. The back wall remains standing for now. It took only a gentle nudge from the heavy equipment to bring down the area that appeared most vulnerable. At this point, Albright said safety is the foremost concern.

Author takes nontraditional route to success BY BRANT SAPPINGTON bsappington@dailycorinthian.com

A new medium combined with a sharp wit and a touch of Southern charm have helped a Prentiss County native take a big bite out of the Big Apple’s publishing world with the publication of her debut novel. Stephanie McAfee’s “Diary of a Mad Fat Girl” quickly became a bestseller when she self-published it as an electronic book on Christmas Day 2010. By March of 2011, the book had landed on the New York Times Bestseller list for print and e-book fiction and remained there for two weeks. It held on for three months on the bestseller list for e-book fiction and was soon picked up by major publishing house Penguin Group. McAfee said it’s been a whirlwind since she took the leap of faith and published the novel online and she’s been over-

January is National GLAUCOMA Awareness Month

Dr. John Shipp, M.D.

Glaucoma is called "the sneak thief of sight" since there are no symptoms and once vision is lost, it's permanent. Vision loss begins with peripheral or side vision, so if you have glaucoma, you may not notice anything until significant vision is lost. The best way to protect your sight from glaucoma is to get a comprehensive eye examination. Then, if you have glaucoma, treatment is available to save your vision. Glaucoma can be hereditary. So if members of your family have glaucoma, you are at a much higher risk than the rest of the population. --- To schedule an appointment for you or your loved one please call, (662) 286-6068.

Work begins to remove portions of the historic Corinth Machinery building at about 6:45 a.m. Saturday, left. Most of the building was taken down to the ground floor level by about 8 a.m, right.

MACHINERY: Albright purchased the South Tate Street property with co-owner with hopes of improving it CONTINUED FROM 1A

The building has attracted numerous sightseers and people trying to get bricks, and it’s simply not safe for

people to approach the building, he said. The owner has asked the police department to keep a close watch on the property.

The Mississippi Department of Archives and History gave verbal approval for the owners to take steps to get the building safe and instructed Albright to send

a written request for the preservation easement to be lifted from the property. Although the fate of the building now appears certain, Albright is not sure

when the rest of it will come down. “It’s a sad day. I’m not enjoying this at all,” he said. Albright purchased the South Tate Street prop-

erty with co-owner Justin Shelton of Columbus with the hope of improving it. The neighboring woolen mill building is used for their export business.

AUTHOR: McAfee will celebrate publication of newly revised print edition with book launch party in Tupelo CONTINUED FROM 1A

whelmed by the response. She’ll celebrate the official publication of the newly revised print version of the novel with a book launch party at Reed’s Gum Tree bookstore in Tupelo from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 7. The novel, a fast-paced, humor-filled mystery centered on the small town of Bugtussle, Miss., was brewing in McAfee’s mind for a decade before she took the leap and focused on writing it. The author is a 1992 graduate of Booneville High School and went

on to earn degrees from Northeast Mississippi Community College, the University of Mississippi and the University of Alabama. She taught in Prentiss County for 5 years before moving to Colorado Springs, Colo., in 2007 when her husband was stationed there with the U.S. Army. In 2010 she decided to turn her focus to writing the novel she had been dreaming of for many years and over the course of the year, her heroine, Graciela “Ace” Jones came to life. A feisty high school teacher who finds herself caught up in a

tangle of small town mysteries and scandals, Jones will be familiar to anyone who has spent time in a small Southern town. The small-town native and former high school teacher said while the book is not autobiographical, there is a lot of her in the character. “I certainly know about being a fat girl,” she said. Her goal was to create a character that everyone could find common ground with. “Everybody says you should write what you know. I wanted it to be a character that’s really relatable,” she said.

2012

While the characters and setting of the novel may be familiar, McAfee’s path to success has been anything but traditional. McAfee self-published the original version of the book through Amazon’s Kindle Direct service, which allows independent authors to offer their books for sale through Amazon in an electronic form for use on e-readers and other devices. The book sold 2,000 copies in January 2011, and McAfee then listed it on Barnes & Noble’s site and others. In March it made the New York Times bestseller listing,

and McAfee’s life began to change. “That’s when it really just took off,” she said. She had shopped the novel around to traditional agents and publishers with little success, but the e-book format gave her an opportunity to get it out to the public in an inexpensive and easy to use manner and build up buzz that helped lead to the new revised edition making its debut in traditional book format. McAfee said technology has helped break down barriers for authors. “It makes it so much easier to get your work

out there,” she said. The former Prentiss Countian, who now makes her home in Florida, is excited about coming home for the launch of her new novel. She was given a choice about where to start her book tour and hold the launch party for the book, and there was no question in her mind what she wanted to do. “I need to start it where home is, with all my friends and family,” she said.

KING: Woman is only surviving original member of homemakers club CONTINUED FROM 1A

Year Pen and the ThreeRuby Pen for active service on the local level at the awards luncheon. She is a past winner of the club’s fashion revue and a regular contributor to its cultural arts exhibitions. King, an 84-year-old Corinth resident, is the only surviving original member of the Town and Country Homemakers Club, part of the MSU Ex-

tension Service. The club was founded in September 1962. “We still exist today — but we’re getting kind of gray around the temples,” said Birks. Upon its founding, the Homemakers Club specialized in homemakers’ skills such as cooking and canning. The club has sponsored activities which share its skills at past county fairs and continues to stay active with a vari-

ety of functions, including sewing pillows for a children’s home in Jackson. The Homemakers also maintain the garden at the intersection of Old U.S. Highway 45 and U.S. 72. The Town and Country Homemakers Club holds an annual awards banquet. The 2012 banquet will honor King and celebrate its first 50 years in existence. The banquet will be held at the MSU Ex-

tension Service behind Crossroads Arena. All past members are invited to attend. Women interested in joining the club should contact Birks for more information. “New members are always welcome,” Birks said. “All ages are always welcome.” For more information contact Joan Birks at 2872702 or the MSU Extension Service at 286-7755.

WURLITZER: Mayor estimates 700 to 800 worked at site during peak CONTINUED FROM 1A

Alliance President Gary Chandler believes the plan will be good for marketing the site. “The building as it stands now, in my opinion, is not very marketable,” he said. “The mayor’s plan to tear the building down and market it as a site is the way we need to go.” With environmental studies involved, he noted it will

not be an overnight process. Irwin estimated 700 to 800 worked at Wurlitzer during its peak. Known for organs, electronic pianos and jukeboxes, the Rudolph Wurlitzer Company entered an agreement with Corinth in 1955 to come to the city. The agreement entailed a bond issue and the city improving the land and constructing a factory building of about 100,000 square feet. The Gateway property

has been an industrial site since 1950. “I’m delighted that a great woodworking business with the great reputation that FCA has is able to continue using the property for its intended use,” said building owner Clayton Stanley. Alcorn County Board of Supervisors President Lowell Hinton said the county supports the city’s effort to redevelop the property. Ward 1 Alderman An-

drew Labas said the city has begun taking applications and qualifying statements from engineers for the environmental assessment. “I feel like it’s a great industrial site. However, the current condition is not really marketable,” he said. Alderman at Large Mike Hopkins said he also supports the plan. “I do think that when we get it ready it will be an asset for recruiting new industry,” he said.

Corinth, Miss.

Candidates serious about governing BY MICHAEL BARONE You know politicians are serious when they move from campaigning to governing. Something like that may be happening on the Republican campaign trail — but, unfortunately, not at the Obama White House. Campaigning clearly carried the day for Newt Gingrich in South Carolina, where he beat Mitt Romney. It’s generally agreed that Gingrich clinched the race when he reacted angrily to questions by Fox News’ Juan Williams and CNN’s John King. Both times Gingrich got standing ovations. But not for how he’d govern. His platform can be summed up in a bumper sticker a Washington lawyer printed to buck up George H.W. Bush’s hapless 1992 campaign: “Annoy the media — vote for Bush.” South Carolina Republicans got a charge out of imagining how Gingrich would rebuke Barack Obama in the Lincoln-Douglas debates he’s been proposing. Except of course Obama would never agree to that format. In the Monday debate at Tampa, Fla., Romney came back hard at Gingrich, saying that he had been ousted as speaker by his own party and that he had to resign “in disgrace.” What’s important here is that Romney went after Gingrich for the way he governed. Gingrich cites, with a little exaggeration, significant things he achieved as speaker — welfare reform, holding spending down, tax cuts. But his quibbling with Romney over the timeline of his ouster as speaker misses the point. Many former colleagues, including Rick Santorum in the last two debates, have criticized him as an erratic and unsteady leader. These conservatives are troubled by the way he governed. And Gingrich was not helped by the interchanges on his work for Freddie Mac, which along with Fannie Mae was heavily responsible for creating the housing bubble that dragged down the economy when it burst, or by the way he defended his advocacy of the Medicare prescription drug program. Romney’s critics have hit the former governor for not doing much to advance the conservative cause. They have something of a point. But Romney was able to cite a conservative fiscal record in Massachusetts despite an 85 percent Democratic legislature. And he might have pointed out that, if he is elected president, he will likely govern with a Republican Senate and Republican House. Romney is now burdened with an economic platform that has rightly been called timid, with only small tax cuts. But the fiscal plans of other candidates are subject to attack as leading to enormous budget deficits when scored by neutral arbiters. Romney’s vaguer call for broadening the tax base and lowering tax rates is something that could actually happen. He hasn’t been specific, but neither was Ronald Reagan in the election leading up to the 1986 law. I think Romney is thinking seriously about governing. Barack Obama isn’t, and that’s one thing Republican candidates might want to bring up in the next debates. Obama rejected the Bowles-Simpson recommendations out of hand, and he seems untroubled that the Democratic-majority Senate hasn’t produced a budget in 1,000 days. But this is a president who flouts one law after another. He made recess appointments when the Senate was not in recess as required by the Constitution, and to one position when a law he signed requires Senate confirmation for the appointee to act. He vetoed the Keystone XL pipeline on environmental grounds that the law says could not be considered. His policy on whether religious organizations can require employees to share their beliefs was swatted down by a 9-0 vote of the Supreme Court. What we see is a president in pure campaign mode and cavalier about the rule of law, with policies — higher taxes, environmental restrictions, more stimulus spending — poorly suited to current needs. The Republican candidates are struggling fiercely with each other. But a candidate who concentrates less on denunciation and more on governing could have an advantage in the fall over an incumbent who is doing more denouncing than governing himself.

That Bryant would emunions and for individual educators as well, the con- brace merit pay for teachcept is gaining momentum ers is not surprising. When

Bryant was a freshman state representative from Rankin County in 1996, the Democratic leadership in state government -- House Speaker Tim Ford, Lt. Gov. Ronnie Musgrove and House Appropriations Committee chairman Rep. Charlie Capps -- had an ambitious $52 million teacher pay hike plan on the agenda as the 1997 session took shape. One of the mightiest voices opposing that plan was then-Gov. Kirk Fordice. Fordice was a proponent of merit pay for teachers, writing in a 1997 veto message: “Philosophically, I do not believe that spending more money on public education will automatically result in higher student test scores. Even the most ardent promoters of increased education funding must admit that a district’s funding level is only one factor that influences the success of its students.” Fordice was Phil Bryant’s Republican political godfather. The merit pay concept is one that’s been a favorite of legislative conservatives for more than 20 years in Mississippi politics. Now,

Republicans control both houses of the Legislature and the Governor’s Mansion. Bryant’s proposed education reforms line up with reforms proposed by other GOP governors across the country. During the administration of former Gov. Ronnie Musgrove, the Legislature passed a six-year phased, $336 million comprehensive teacher pay hike. The Legislature loosely linked performance of the school districts to that pay hike bill. Back when Bryant was a freshman state legislator in the minority in the House, merit pay was little more than a throwaway line in Kirk Fordice’s veto messages -- vetoes that were routinely and almost summarily overridden. But the legislative numbers, an ailing state budget and public sentiment finely attuned to accountability make merit pay an issue that may well get traction during the 2012 session.

that is supposed to show that the Postal Service pays its own way and costs the taxpayers nothing. Politicians may be crooks but they are not fools. Easily observed direct subsidies can create a political problem. Far better to set up an arrangement that will allow government-sponsored enterprises — whether the Postal Service, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac or the Tennessee Valley Authority — to operate in such a way that they can claim to be selfsupporting and not costing the taxpayers anything, no matter how much indirect subsidy they get. As just one example, the Postal Service has a multibillion dollar line of credit at the U.S. Department of the Treasury. Hey, we could all use a few billions, every now and then, to get us over the rough spots. But we are not the Postal Service. Theoretically, the Postal Service is going to pay it all back some day, and that theoretical possibility keeps it from being called a direct subsidy. The Postal Service is also exempt from paying taxes, among other exemptions it has from costs that other businesses have to pay. Exemption from taxes, and from other requirements that apply to other

businesses, are also not called subsidies. For people who mistake words for realities, that is enough for them to buy the political line — and to get huffy with those who don’t. Loan guarantees are a favorite form of hidden subsidies for all sorts of special interests. At a given point in time, it can be said that these guarantees cost the taxpayers nothing. But when they suddenly do cost something — as with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac — they can cost billions. One of the reasons for so much presumptuous ignorance flourishing in our time may be the emphasis on “self-esteem” in our schools and colleges. Children not yet a decade old have been encouraged, or even required, to write letters to public figures, sounding off on issues ranging from taxes to nuclear missiles. Our schools begin promoting presumptuous ignorance early on. It is apparently one of the few things they teach well. The end result is people without much knowledge, but with a lot of brass.

Camel predicts Giants will win Super Bowl Associated Press

LACEY TOWNSHIP, N.J. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A New Jersey camel with an appetite for picking winning NFL teams has signaled the New York Giants will win the Super Bowl. Princess, the star of Popcorn Park Zoo, has correctly picked the winner of five of the last six Super Bowls. She went 14 and 6 predicting regular season games this year. The Bactrian camelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prognostica-

tion skills flow from her love of graham crackers. Zoo general manager John Bergmann places a cracker and writes the name of the competing teams on each hand. Whichever hand Princess nibbles from is her pick. Her only miscue in the big game was picking the Indianapolis Colts over the New Orleans Saints two years ago. Princess, who once belonged to heiress Doris Duke, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do point spreads.

In the era of big boxes, a day for the little guy simple.â&#x20AC;? The store, overlooking meandering Riverside Park and the Chagrin River in the middle of town, has been run by the Shutts family for the last 72 years. It passed from uncle to father to older brothers Rob and Kenny and the three youngest, Steve, Susie and Jack, who run the store today. Blackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s note was forwarded and forwarded and forwarded again. Calls started coming in from folks out of state who wanted to make a purchase over the phone. And when the day came, so did the shoppers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one by one, with dogs on leashes and children in tow, hour after hour until the hardware was teeming with customers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is small-town America,â&#x20AC;? said resident Martine Scheuermann, a bag of petsafe ice melt in her arms and her Springer Spaniels tapping their toes on the worn wooden floor at her feet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a special family business in a town where everybody knows you.â&#x20AC;? The store has seen its share of tough times. Road construction on Main Street at the storeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s front door some years back crippled business for a time. More recently, the weakened economy and the big boxes have stolen away customers.

BY AMY SANCETTA Associated Press

CHAGRIN FALLS, Ohio â&#x20AC;&#x201D; It began quietly, as an email to 40 friends. But when a steady stream of customers began coming through the door before the familyowned Chagrin Hardware had even opened for the day on Saturday, it was clear that it had turned into much more than that. The idea started with Jim Black, a resident of Chagrin Falls, a closeknit village in Clevelandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eastern suburbs that is part artist colony and part bedroom community. Black posted the email to a group of his friends. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show our support for one of our local businesses,â&#x20AC;? he wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I challenge everyone to spend AT LEAST $20 at the hardware on the 21st.â&#x20AC;? Although his email referred to the idea of a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cash Mobâ&#x20AC;? or the notion to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Occupy CF Hardware,â&#x20AC;? he really had no political agenda. And it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t meant as a protest against the bigbox stores that have created an ever-tightening circle around the community. It was just a way to thank Chagrin Hardwareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s owners for a beloved shop that has been a fixture in the village since 1857. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are good people who needed our support,â&#x20AC;? Black said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just that

On this day, though, those storylines were forgotten. By 10 a.m. the place was jammed. By 1:30 p.m., the credit card machine was overloaded and had to be reset. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is so cool,â&#x20AC;? said Steve Shutts, a mix of joy, wonder and happy exhaustion spread across his face. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen people today I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen in years.â&#x20AC;? The line at the checkout stretched in two directions as people with snow shovels and light bulbs and fireplace grates and vintage movie posters and horse shoe caulk â&#x20AC;&#x201D; yes, horse shoe caulk â&#x20AC;&#x201D; waited to pay. Chad Schron, 38, came with his 8-year-old son Robert. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have anything we had to get, but we found things we had to get,â&#x20AC;? he said. As he spoke, Robert clutched an Ohio State desk lamp and two flying monkey toys to his chest. When the final customer had finally left well after closing time with her fuzzy dice and floodlights, Schwind and Steve Shutts tallied the dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s receipts. Shutts shook his head at the wild and unexpected ride. He wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say how much the store made that day, but was clearly pleased with the outcome. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thanks to Jimmy Black,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thanks to everyone. Thanks to Chagrin Falls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What a place to live.â&#x20AC;?

Obama delays release of â&#x20AC;&#x2122;13 budget attempts at budget deals, election-year expectations are low that Obama and Congress will be able to make progress this year on deficits that required the government to borrow 36 cents of every dollar it spent last year. But House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., told reporters that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hopeful Congress and Obama will at least be able to agree upon enough budget savings to forestall across-the-board budget cuts. The cuts are required in the wake of last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s failure by a socalled deficit supercom-

BY ANDREW TAYLOR Associated Press

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The White House said Monday that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s delaying for one week the release of President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget for the 2013 fiscal year that starts Oct. 1. The budget is traditionally released on the first Monday in February â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which is Feb. 6 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but the administration has pushed the release to Feb. 13. An administration official said the later date was â&#x20AC;&#x153;determined based on the need to finalize decisions and technical details of the document.â&#x20AC;?

Obama is sure to preview new policy proposals in Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s State of the Union address, and the subsequent budget release typically fleshes in the details. Capitol Hill Republicans were quick to criticize the White House delay, saying it shows the White House isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t serious about tackling the deficit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I were advising President Obama, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d recommend less time campaigning and more time spent addressing the impending fiscal crisis,â&#x20AC;? said Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need a budget with a responsible spending restraint and pro-growth reforms and we need it now.â&#x20AC;?

American economy healing Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The American economy may not be truly healthy yet, but it’s healing. The 2.8 percent annual growth rate reported Friday for the fourth quarter was the fastest since spring 2010 and was the third straight quarter that growth has accelerated. Experts cautioned, however, that the pace was unlikely to last and that it’s not enough to sharply drive down the unemployment rate. Unemployment stands at 8.5 percent — its lowest level in nearly three years after a sixth straight month of solid hiring. And Friday’s Commerce Department report suggests more hiring gains ahead. For the final three months of 2011, Americans spent more on vehicles, and companies restocked their supplies at a robust pace. Still, overall growth last quarter — and for all of last year — was slowed by the sharpest cuts in annual government spending in four decades. And many people are reluctant to spend more or buy homes, and many employers remain hesitant to hire, even though job growth has strengthened. The outlook for 2012 is slightly better. The Federal Reserve has estimated economic growth of roughly 2.5 percent for the year, despite abundant risk factors: federal spending cuts, weak pay increases, cautious consumers and the risk of a European recession. Economists noted that most of the growth in the October-December quarter was due to companies restocking their supplies at the fastest rate in nearly two years. That pace is expected to slow. “The pickup in growth doesn’t look half as good when you realize that most of it was due to inventory accumulation,” said Paul Ashworth, an economist at Capital Economics. Ashworth expects annualized growth to slip below 2 percent in the current January-March quarter. Other economists have similar estimates. Stocks opened lower after the government reported the growth figures. The Dow Jones industrial average closed down

about 74 points. Broader indexes were mixed. In a normal economy, roughly 3 percent growth is a healthy figure. It’s enough to keep unemployment down — but not so much growth as to ignite inflation. But coming out of a recession, much stronger growth is needed. By some estimates, the economy would have to expand at least 5 percent for a full year to drive down the unemployment rate by 1 percentage point. In many ways, the economy did end 2011 on a strong note. Companies invested more in equipment and machinery in December. People are buying more cars, and consumer confidence has risen. Even the depressed housing market has shown enough incremental gains to lead some economists to detect the start of a turnaround. In the final three months of 2011, consumer spending grew at a 2 percent annual rate. That was up modestly from the JulySeptember quarter. Consumer spending is critical because it fuels about 70 percent of the economy. Much of the growth was powered by a 15 percent surge in sales of autos and other long-lasting manufactured goods.

Incomes, which have been weak because of stillhigh unemployment, grew ever so slightly, at a tepid 0.8 percent annual rate, following two straight quarterly declines. Unless pay picks up, consumers who have dipped into savings in recent months may pull back. “Consumers don’t have much income growth, and to even achieve a 2 percent growth rate in spending in the fourth quarter, they had to run down their saving rate,” said Nigel Gault, chief economist at IHS Global Insight. And government spending at all levels fell at an annual rate of 4.6 percent in the fourth quarter and 2.1 percent for the year — the sharpest drop since 1971. Defense cuts at the start and end of the year were a key factor. With Congress aiming to shrink budget deficits, the likelihood of further federal spending cuts could weigh on the economy. Economic growth is measured by the change in the gross domestic product, or GDP. The GDP reflects the value of all goods and services — from machinery to manicures to hotel bookings to jet fighters — produced in the United States. Friday’s estimate of GDP growth was the first

of three for the OctoberDecember quarter. The figure will be revised twice, in February and then in March. Ian Shepherdson, an economist at High Frequency Economics, is among the more optimistic analysts. He said he thought business investment in capital goods would be stronger and consumer spending higher this year. Many fear that a likely recession in Europe could cool demand for U.S. manufactured goods. Growth would slow. Without many more jobs and better pay, consumer spending could weaken. The Fed signaled this week that a full economic recovery could take at least three more years. Although things may not be good, they’re getting better. Gault predicts the economy will create an average of 150,000 jobs a month in 2012 based on his expectation that the year will be slightly stronger than 2011. Last year, the economy created an average 133,000 jobs a month. “We are starting to see improvements in the housing market, and consumers are working down their debt levels,” Gault said. “That is all good and will help us this year.”

There was no panic on the pitch. Staring right in the face of elimination, the Corinth Warriors advanced to the North Half championship game for the third straight year by edging out Florence 3-2 in overtime Saturday at Warrior Stadium II.

on Tuesday. “Florence was the real deal,” said CHS Head Coach Gregg Parker. “That just shows how tough and tenacious we are. You can’t simulate that kind of intensity in practice.” The Corinth girls saw their playoff run halted with an 9-1 setback to Florence in the first match of the day. The Lady Warriors (11-7) ended the shutout bid on a Mychaela Nixon goal off a Frances Bullard assist in the second half.

• Florence (14-5-3) scored with about 12 minutes remaining in the second-round contest to take a 2-1 advantage. With about one minute left in its season, Corinth (16-2-2) evened the score and forced overtime when John Mathis headed in a Josh Trest boot. “They never gave up,” said Parker. “They won’t quit until someone tells them its time to come home.” Riding the momentum shift, Albert Stanley pro-

vided the eventual game-winning goal midway of the first 10-minute overtime session on a direct kick from midfield. The long, high-arching boot left the Florence goalie red faced and with a red card following an outburst. A halftime talk proved beneficial in the game-changing goal on a sloppy playing surface. “Albert has a tendency to Please see CHS | 9A

Florida’s Scottie Wilbekin (5) puts the pressure on Mississippi State’s Dee Bost (3) with Mississippi State’s coach Rick Stamsbury, watching from the sidelines during the first second of an NCAA college basketball game in Gainesville, Florida on Saturday. Florida took the win from Mississippi State with a score of 69-57.

No. 18 MSU falters at No. 14 Florida Associated Press

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — In close games on the road against good teams, there are two things Mississippi State coach Rick Stansbury believes teams just can’t do. Commit turnovers and miss free throws. The No. 18 Bulldogs did both in a 69-57 loss at No. 14 Florida on Saturday. Arnett Moultrie and Dee

Bost scored 12 points apiece, but it wasn’t nearly enough to overcome 14 turnovers and six missed free throws. Stansbury gave Florida all the credit. But he also blamed his team for causing some its own woes. “When you’re on the road fighting against a real quality team like Florida, you have to take advantage of all those situations,” Stansbury said.

NASHVILLE, Tenn.— Vanderbilt coach Kevin Stallings warned his Commodores they would get Middle Tennessee’s best game Saturday. They proved to be up to the challenge in a game that had the feel of a first-round game at the NCAA tournament.

Saturday for its 10th win in 11 games in a game that was much tighter than the final score. “It took being ready, it took toughness, it took sustaining effort for 40 minutes for our team to win the game,” Stallings said. “And we knew that’s what we were going to have to do coming in because we knew this was their game.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Trevor Releford scored 18 points and Alabama snapped a four-game losing streak, beating Arkansas 72-66 on Saturday. JaMychal Green finished with 14 points and eight rebounds for Crimson Tide (14-7, 3-4 Southeastern Conference), who won their 500th game in Coleman Coliseum. Tony Mitchell and Andrew Steele each scored 11 points. Steele also had a career-high six assists and six rebounds. The four players who scored in double-digits were the most this season since Alabama put five players in double digits during an 82-45 victory over Alabama A&M on Nov. 23. Ricky Scott had 18 points for the Razorbacks

(15-6, 3-3) remain winless on the road. Mardracus Wade 12 points and BJ Young 11 points and six assists. After trailing by five points on four occasions, Alabama grabbed its first lead 28-26 at the 7:11 mark when Releford made a three-point shot from the corner. “The way we closed the first half with a seven point lead (enabled us) to have good momentum,” Alabama coach Anthony Grant said. The Crimson Tide stayed in front for the remainder of the half, extending their lead to 37-30 at halftime when Releford scored on a driving lay-up. The Razorbacks went on a 17-8 run to take a 47-45 lead on a score by Devonta Abron with 13:41

remaining, after Abron had tied the game on a dunk. Trailing 56-54 with 6:59 left to play, Alabama outscored Arkansas 18-10 down the stretch to secure the win. “I think we had better energy on the defensive end. We executed and made some plays down the stretch,” Releford said. “We played with a sense of urgency. We were on a four-game losing streak and I think just to get our confidence back we needed to win.” Steele said, “We made some tough stops when we needed to. I think we did a good job at the end of both halves of finishing.” Alabama connected on 25-of-50 shots from the field, marking the seventh time this season the Crimson Tide has shot 50 percent or better in a game.

Beal led the Gators with 19 points. Young finished with 12, many of them coming on crowdrousing plays in the second half.

Florida used pressing, trapping defense to dictate tempo and force the Bulldogs into all those turnovers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They had a lot to do with us not playing our best,â&#x20AC;? Stansbury said. Florida trapped Bost on every pick-and-roll play, often forcing the ball out of his hands and trying to wear him down. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were commu-

nicating with each other and were out there on defense talking amongst themselves,â&#x20AC;? Bost said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sign of a really good team.â&#x20AC;? The biggest difference came at the 3-point line. The Gators, who lead the nation in 3s, hit 11 of 24 from behind the arc. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It seemed like 21, but it was only 11,â&#x20AC;?

to Middle Tennesseeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 16 of 22. Middle Tennessee coach Kermit Davis feels good about a stiff test for his team from the Sun Belt Conference, which already had wins at UCLA and Mississippi in what may wind up as the Blue Raidersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; best season ever. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They could make a deep run in the NCAA tournament; you go on their home floor and play the way we played today, I think it re-emphasizes what we thought,â&#x20AC;? Davis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a really competitive team, and we can play with most teams in college basketball.â&#x20AC;? Festus Ezeli scored a season-high 21 points and sank a career-best 11 free throws for Vanderbilt. Taylor added 17 points and Lance Goulbourne had 11. LaRon Dendy led Middle Tennessee with a career-high 22 points. JT Sulton had 12 points before fouling out, and Bruce Massey and Marcos Knight each had 10. Both teams came in streaking, with Middle Tennesseeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s streak tied for third-longest in the nation. The Blue Raiders, whose campus is about 40 miles southeast of Nashville, have never won at Memorial Gym in a series Vandy now leads 294, but they certainly came close in this game. The teams swapped the lead eight times with

10 ties, and Vanderbilt was up 44-39 at halftime. Middle Tennessee led by as much as eight in the first half, taking advantage of a cold-shooting start by Vanderbilt, and the Commodores never led by more than six as the teams went back and forth most of the second half. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was just kind of stuck,â&#x20AC;?

What you need to know about side trolling across the lake is an impossible task. Any fishing boat can be used in side-trolling. However, a lightweight boat such as a 14-foot flat bottom or a boat specifically designed for side-trolling will perform better. They are easier to control and maneuver when trying to drift a specific area, such as a ledge for instance. To make control and maneuverability simple, the trolling motor should be mounted on the side in the vicinity of the driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seat so the boat will pull evenly in a sideways fashion. If the boat doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pull evenly once the motor is affixed, correct it by moving the mount one way or the other as needed. Practically, any kind of reel will work fine. Most fishermen use baits casting reels, but I do know others who prefer using spinning reels. It all comes down to individual preference.

got two sportsmen earning a portion of their income using it excluDavid sively on Green their guiding trips. Outdoors S i d e trolling is more effective than the traditional way of trolling long-ways because it allows the angler to fish deep or shallow and cover a wider span of water faster using several poles at a time rigged with multiple baits. That means all depths can be fished effectively with the likelihood of tangled lines being less, unproductive water can be eliminated quickly, and crappies can be found faster. Trolling long ways in deep water and keeping in contact with the bottom without stretching your lines out all the way

I had no intention of writing another column on side-trolling for crappie since Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve written on the subject numerous times in the past, but recently after running into a couple of people new to the area who expressed an interest in learning about crappie fishing on Pickwick, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve decided to give it another shot â&#x20AC;&#x201D; figuring if thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably several more. This time, however, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to try giving a better detailed description of how and where to use the technique plus the gear that will be needed. But before I get too carried away, I must give credit to where credit is due. Bill and Roger Gant of Corinth, crappie guides on Pickwick Lake, came up with the innovative and effective pulling technique to troll for crappie many, many years ago. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t argue with the effectiveness of the technique when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve

The type of rods and line size diameter used does matter, however. Sensitive light action rods with limber tips are essential for detecting light strikes and for noticing when baits bump into structure, and small diameter line outperforms heavier lines because it is less visible and creates a more realistic presentation. Six to eight pound test lines are good sizes to use. Most fishermen use one-eighth or one-quarter ounce hair jigs when trolling for crappie on Pickwick, but tube jigs in the right color at the right time will also work just as well. In side-trolling, anglers usually fish with three rods apiece rigged with two jigs of varying sizes and colors on each line tied about 18 inches apart. The baits are lowered to run next to the bottom just above cover, and then the rods are spaced two to three feet apart and placed

:KHUHWKHULYHUKROGV\RXUKHDUW :KHUHWKHULYHUKROGV\RXUKHDUW

in V-shaped rod holders. Rod holders and the number of rods used are optional. On windy days, however, rod holders are extremely helpful. When a crappie hits your offering, the rod tip will thump similar to the way a bass sucks in a plastic worm. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when you grab the rod, set the hook and, hopefully, reel him in. Good electronics is not an option. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a must. My partner and I had our LCR unit fixed midway on the side of the boat in front of us. That way both of us could take note of what depth the fish were being caught at, and make adjustments to our lines if we came up on a sudden depth change. This helps in establishing a pattern and avoiding unnecessary hang-ups. Pickwick and side-trolling for crappie are synonymous, but the tactic along with the same types of jigs and jig sizes also work well on other lakes. Dynamite

What you may not know is side-trolling can be used effectively to fish for catfish. When the current is weak, the motor can be used to help push you along. If the current is pushing you along too fast, it can be used to slow the drift so the bait can be bounced along more slowly across the bottom.

Man wants wife out of kitchen DEAR ABBY: I’m fortunate to be married to an amazing woman. There’s just one problem. She’s convinced that I’m going to burn down the house. She constantly nags me when I’m cooking, even when I’m literally standing over the pots. I find her tone — and the idea that I don’t know how to use a stove — insulting. She insists I have the burner on too high when I’m making spaghetti, and it will somehow result in a catastrophe far worse than a ruined meal. I find it extremely annoying because I am 30, served my country honorably in Iraq, have been making spaghetti since I was 12 and have never caused any sort of kitchen fire. My wife hasn’t cooked for me in more than a year. That doesn’t upset me because I know she works hard to earn money for our family. But if she doesn’t cook for me and I’m not allowed to cook for me, then how am I supposed to eat? Is there anything I can do to make my wife understand that I can be

trusted to make a simple meal on a simple stove? -PASTA Abigail GUY IN Van Buren PHILLY DEAR Dear Abby PASTA GUY: Probably not, if you haven’t been able to convey that message in more than a year. So insist that she stay out of the kitchen while you’re cooking, or prepare your meals after she has left for work. Or expand your repertoire beyond spaghetti and make a salad instead. DEAR ABBY: I’m a 15-year-old high school student with a wonderful life, but I’m not happy. I get good grades, have many great friends, a weekend job and an amazing boyfriend. The problem is I’m bored. I have had only one technical boyfriend besides the one I have now. I had two “flings” where I got involved with guys without an official or physical relationship.

I know most teenagers would kill for a boyfriend like mine who buys them things and tells them they’re beautiful. But I want a relationship with ups and downs — drama and fighting. Am I crazy to want to date other people, or is this normal? — LOST IN LOVE DEAR LOST IN LOVE: You’re not crazy. It is normal for some teenage girls to want variety. However, please don’t equate the kind of drama you see on TV and in films with what real life is supposed to be about. Relationships filled with drama and fighting do not have happy outcomes. They can lead to bruised hearts and sometimes violence. If you want to end the relationship with your boyfriend, by all means do so. But before you become involved in the kind of relationship you think would be exciting, please discuss it with your mother or another trusted adult, because a mature person with insight should share some of it with you. DEAR ABBY: My moth-

er gives gifts -- sometimes very generous ones -- but always with strings attached. She also keeps a record of which recipients have responded with appropriate gratitude (cards, phone calls) and those who have not. Those individuals on the “not” list are ridiculed behind their backs and slighted in other ways. My mother considers herself a “good Christian,” but I believe her actions are selfish, and I have conflicting emotions when I receive gifts from her. What do you think? — CONFLICTED IN WISCONSIN DEAR CONFLICTED: I think you should always thank your mother graciously and appropriately for her generosity when she gives you a gift, if only because it is considered good manners.

MISSISSIPPI STATE — Significant manpower is needed to operate state government, and four young Mississippians will have the opportunity to help meet that demand in the 2012 Mississippi legislative session.

Daniel Radcliffe dishes on post ‘Potter’ life BY ALICIA QUARLES Associated Press

NEW YORK — Daniel Radcliffe had to decide what his first starring film role would be after the “Harry Potter” franchise ended in 2011, and he didn’t make that decision lightly. Despite demonstrating his acting range by starring in “Equus” and “How to Succeed in Business” on Broadway, the pressure was on for Radcliffe to prove he could play more than Potter on the big screen. He chose “The Woman in Black,” a dark thriller about a recently widowed father who is haunted by his wife’s death. The movie will be in theaters

Feb. 3. “I never expected the first thing I did after ‘Potter’ to be a horror film or anything like that. That was one of the reasons it was intriguing to me as well because it was so unexpected,” Radcliffe said in a recent interview. He also talked about growing up fast, getting praise from actor Sean Connery, who starred in James Bond films, and why he isn’t ready to marry his longtime girlfriend. AP: You knew the world was watching to see what movie you picked after “Harry Potter” ended. Why did you decide on “The Woman in Black”? Radcliffe: This film is a film that has a great story

but it is driven by characters at the heart of it. It fit in perfectly. It was going to be filming when I was on break from finishing “Potter” and starring in “How to Succeed,” so it was perfectly timed out. Also, when I was reading the script, I was surprised to be enjoying a horror film because I have never gravitated towards that in my own life. AP: Did any former child stars, or people who have made the transition from doing iconic roles to having diverse careers give you advice about how to avoid being typecast? Radcliffe: Not particularly, but I did hear the other day from a friend of mine who is friends with

Sean Connery and apparently Sean Connery asked him to pass along to me how well he thought I was doing and how well I seem to be handling everything and making good choices. For me, that was great because he is a great actor. He had this amazing start to his career in Bond and managed to create a fantastic career for himself outside that, so to hear that from him was very flattering. AP: You play a father in this role. Did you feel that was a stretch? Radcliffe: It is very hard to create that chemistry with a 4-year-old boy who you have never met before and who is stepping onto a film set going,

“What in the hell is all of this?” That was one of the reasons that I suggested (director) James (Watkins) audition my real-life godson who auditioned and was great and is great in the film. At the time when we were filming, I was so obsessed with him having a good time and making sure he wasn’t cold or wasn’t freaking out that I didn’t really pay attention to the fact that he is actually quite a good little actor. AP: This movie is dark, but it is also about love. Did you think about the love you have for your longtime girlfriend, Rosanne Coker, for inspiration? Radcliffe: At the time

we had been filming this we had only been going out for a couple of months. There is actually one shot in the film where Rosie had to play the woman in black because we didn’t have a double for her that day so she is actually in one of the reveal shots in the film. She is going to kill me for telling you that. I don’t think I probably drew on things at that time, but I am sure now I will probably use — the fear of losing her will be a very good motivating tool. AP: Are you thinking of marriage? Radcliffe: Who knows. God, I am not even thinking about that for a long time.

Pickler gets personal on album McGraw’s ‘Traffic’ finally hits streets BY CAITLIN R. KING Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Kellie Pickler wants you to know she’s a traditional gal — and she’s making it very clear with her new album, “100 Proof.” The platinum blonde “American Idol” alum is pulling back from the pop-country tunes that once defined her, like “Red High Heels” and “Best Days Of Your Life,” and replacing them with ones that reflect her traditional country roots. The album was released this week. “I guess it’s been like three-and-a-half years since my last record came out. ... So a lot has happened in my life. I’m married. I’ve grown up a lot, because when I started this I was 19 and green when I did my first record, ‘Small Town Girl,’” said Pickler. “So much has

happened in my life. Most of it is on the record.” Pickler, 25, took cues from her musical heroes, the big wigs of women in country music. The opening track even name checks one of those legends in “Where’s Tammy Wynette.” “I love Tammy Wynette. She’s a big reason why I fell in love with country music. You wouldn’t know that if you listened to (my) past things,” Pickler said. “I love that sound, and I wanted to sprinkle a little bit of the people that influenced me to be here in the first place but make it my record.” Pickler wrote more on this album than in the past, penning six of the 11 songs. Two are very personal and reflect her separate, complicated relationships with her mother and father. As for the rest of the al-

bum, Pickler doesn’t lose her sassy personality. “There’s songs that are fun, upbeat. We’ve got ‘Unlock That Honky Tonk’ that’s rockin’. There’s a lot of banjo. There’s a lot of steel. There’s a lot of fiddle. There’s a lot of my favorite musical instruments,” she said. “Tough” was the first song released from “100 Proof.” A friend wrote it for Pickler based on a conversation they had about her life. “You think physically tough, but this song is about being emotionally tough. It’s about being a tough woman. It’s about letting the things and the obstacles and the speed bumps you hit in life; it doesn’t bring you down. It makes you strong. It doesn’t make you weak,” said Pickler. “Like it or love it, this is the way I am.”

Horoscopes Sunday, January 29, 2012 BY HOLIDAY MATHIS Creators Syndicate

The tension created by yesterday’s conflict between Mercury and Jupiter still hangs in the air. Economic matters are more complex and nuanced than they seem, and it’s not exactly the right moment to work out the details. Wait until things simmer down, and know that everything will eventually balance out -- it always does. ARIES (March 21-April 19). There are certain aspects of your life you used to find distressing that you now find merely interesting. The facts are what they are, and you have little emotional attachment to them. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You don’t like to admit when you’re wrong and being slow to do so will serve you well. You’re not the only one responsible for what has happened. Take a moment to review all sides. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The conventional wisdom suggests that the past cannot be changed, and yet, since it exists in your mind, it changes all of the time. The way you view your history will transform yet again today. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re more likely to believe what is entirely, outrageously incredible than buy into the boring truth. This is a good quality now, as a bit of strange fantasy will fuel your motivation. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You are not in the mood to compromise. You won’t sell out your own interests, and you feel the same way about the rest of your team. Your loyalty will be rewarded. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It’s

good to be charming and even better to be charming with your own means of transportation. Your smile will get you the invitation, but you’ll need a car to get to the party. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You value lively conversation. Sometimes, you have to work a little harder for it. The reading you do now will help future interactions. Also, take note of the best bits of your day to share with a trusted friend later. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). If you want to do something well, save yourself time and effort by going straight to the one who already has mastered the skill. Imitate the master for a while to learn the ropes. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When arrangements don’t go as anticipated, you won’t judge or complain. Instead, you’ll simply observe the interaction, taking note of how you might, when and if you feel like it, change your approach. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You want justice in a matter, not only for you but for all involved. You’re willing to fight for what is really right, even if it benefits others more than it does you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). If only tomorrow’s troubles could be drained away by worrying about them today. But it doesn’t work that way. The only thing that will be drained away by worry is your energy. Think positive and get in motion. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There’s a beautiful view on the horizon, but you may be the only one to notice at first. You’ll be challenged to draw the attention of others away from self-interest and toward something magnificent.

BY CHRIS TALBOTT Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Tim McGraw’s longdelayed album “Emotional Traffic” has the attention of Music Row this week as it finally hits the streets. The last album in the long, lucrative but contentious relationship between McGraw and Curb Records arrives more than a year late with a fascinating backstory and a little bit of buzz. McGraw isn’t actively promoting the album, but it kicks off what promises to be a high visibility year for the country star. He’s currently considering his next move after a judge granted his freedom from his record deal last November. What’s already on the schedule is the “Brothers of the Sun” stadium tour this summer with Kenny

Chesney and actively recording new songs. “Emotional Traffic” already indirectly produced a multi-week No. 1 song, “Felt Good on My Lips,” which was released against McGraw’s wishes on a hits package in 2010. McGraw has called the new album his “best ever” and fan interest is piqued. “There are a lot of possibilities with this record. It’s hard to say,” said Wade Jessen, who tracks country music and other charts for Billboard Magazine in Nashville. “I think at least in the public comments Tim has made about it, he’s very much a cheerleader for this music, and that may go a long way to making the most emotionally invested fans overlook the fact that it’s coming out on a record label Tim has had

some issues with. And we know how loyal country music fans are. They like for their artists to be treated fairly and with respect, and if there’s any perception otherwise it can guide their decisions.” With legal issues to resolve still, McGraw and Curb executives aren’t doing interviews to promote “Emotional Traffic.” But McGraw laid the groundwork for a promotional campaign in a few interviews last year. He also previewed a handful of cuts from the album on last year’s extremely popular “Emotional Traffic” tour. In an interview last April, McGraw said he couldn’t wait for fans to hear the new album. “The songs are just really fresh and cool. I’m excited.”

Celebrations Wedding

Tips to make your wedding unique

Null — Thompson The marriage of Lori Nicole Null and Jerry Todd Thompson took place Saturday, Oct. 15, 2011 in Nashville, Tenn. Minister Brian Stephens officiated at the ceremony on the lawn of historic Cedarwood. The bride’s attendants were Leigha Moltz, matron of honor, of Murfreesboro, Tenn.; Elizabeth Huddleston, cousin of the bride, of Birmingham, Ala.; Kathryn Smith of Decherd, Tenn.; Kara Mattox of Old Hickory, Tenn.; and Lona Dunn of Murfreesboro, Tenn. The ring bearer was Madden Moltz, and Peyton Namie served as the flower girl. The bride was given in marriage by her brother, Gabe Null. The bride is the daughter of Mrs. Gay Null and the late Mr. Bobby W. Null of Corinth. She is the granddaughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Harmon Rainey and the late Mrs. Dessie W. Null, all of Corinth. She is a 1998 honor graduate of Kossuth High School. She graduated summa cum laude in 2002 from David Lipscomb University where she holds a bachelor of science degree in exercise science/biology. She received her doctorate degree in physical therapy from Tennessee State University in 2008. She is employed at Magnolia Regional Health Center. The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Jerry

Special to the Daily Corinthian

(StatePoint) Your wedding day will likely be one of the most memorable days of your life. Unfortunately, many engaged couples get trapped planning a bland, formulaic party. But with some creative planning, your nuptials can be as unique as your relationship. Here are some top customization tips for couples tying the knot: ■ Pick a theme: A theme can really tie your affair together. Opt for one that is aesthetically appropriate for a wedding, and complementary to the venue. Your theme should inform your planning decisions on everything from food

to music. ■ Live music: Even if you can’t spring for a ten-piece band, live music is a great investment. A live musician will liven up the party by tailoring music on the fly, based on guests’ requests. ■ A great space: If possible, avoid the standard hotel conference room. Your photos are going to last a lifetime, so pick a beautiful space you will want to remember. ■ Delicious food: To provide food you know you and your guests will love, consider asking your favorite restaurant to cater your event. Having your favorite steak joint or Thai spot provide the eats will certainly be unique and tasty.

MISSISSIPPI STATE — A good wedding gift is appropriately generous, completely thoughtful and exactly right for the recipient, but finding that perfect gift can seem almost impossible. No one wants to be the one who gave the gift that raised eyebrows or left the new couple wondering if they have been insulted. Purchasing items on the couple’s gift registry can help them set up housekeeping and

results in fewer returns and duplicate items. However, some who wish them well want to make their gifts truly special. Susan Cosgrove, Mississippi State University Extension Service family resource management specialist in Newton County, said it helps to know as much about the couple as possible. “Will the couple be living in a house or an apartment, in the city or in the country?” Cosgrove said. “The answer

to these questions can determine a lot about what type of gifts are most appropriate.” Cosgrove said that even if a person chooses to find a gift not on the wedding registry, examining the registry can yield a lot of details about the new couple’s interests and tastes. Gift-givers who are not crafty or confident of their cooking abilities can put some thought into buying a collection of items to make up a gift basket.
