MHP driver’s services offer options Office is located inside the Northeast at Corinth facility BY BOBBY J. SMITH bjsmith@dailycorinthian.com

The Mississippi Highway Pa-

trol Driver’s Services office in Corinth offers a variety of options for people who want to obtain or renew a driver’s license. The office is located inside the Northeast at Corinth facility at 2759 South Harper Road. MHP personnel are on hand from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Driving tests and permit tests are given five days a week, from 8

until 11 a.m. and 1 until 4 p.m. The Driver’s Service Office now offers 8-year regular licenses — in addition to the standard 4-year licenses. The fee for the 8-year licenses is $43. The 8-year option is not available for CDL or Class-D licenses. The facility is home to one of the state’s approximately 30 automated license renewal kiosks. Similar in appearance

to an ATM machine, the kiosk allows drivers to renew their regular licenses completely unassisted. All it takes is a debit or credit card. The kiosk does not accept cash. Examiner Nancy Brown said the machine is good for people who can’t make it to the Driver’s Service Office during regular hours. The easy-to-use kiosk features a touch-screen interface

and provides video to help users through the renewal process. After a few simple steps, the machine prints out a temporary driver’s license that is good for 14 days after it is issued. The actual license comes in the mail within three to five days. The cost of using the kiosk is $26.50, slightly higher than the regular renewal fee because of the addPlease see DRIVERS | 2

Course teaches self-defense tactics BY STEVE BEAVERS sbeavers@dailycorinthian.com

Women are learning how to think quickly. Through a self-defense workshop. A pair of courses are being taught at Northeast Mississippi Community College and the Corinth Sportsplex. Both are designed to help women know how to react in escaping an attack and how to use the element of surprise as part of the defense. “Most people think the course is about learning to fight,” said instructor Greg Bullard. “The class teaches you methods of escape. The best way to avoid a dangerous situation is to not be there.” Bullard, a 3rd Degree Black Belt in Taekwondo, says the two keys in selfdefense is awareness and avoidance. “If a situation doesn’t feel right, you need to avoid it so you won’t have to

IUKA — J.P. Coleman State Park hopes to attract larger boats to its marina with new boat slips to be constructed partly with federal grant dollars. The U.S. Department of the Interior announced a Boating Infrastructure Grant Program award of $802,560 towards a project to add 20 transient boating slips at the Coleman park marina. It is one of 11 projects across the U.S. to receive funds. “Right now, the state park just has the smaller docks,” said Gary Matthews, director of the Tishomingo County Development Foundation. “These are designed for the much bigger boats that we’re seeing on Pickwick Lake. Most of these people are making the great circuit from the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico. It’s something that should bring more visitors to the area.” He said the project might reach the bid phase by springtime. The total project is $1.254 million, with the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks, Tishomingo County, the development foundation and Tombigbee River Valley Water Management District all contributing. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service grants targeted transient boats — those staying 10 days or less — that are at least 26 feet in length and used for recreation. Please see GRANT | 2

Drug unit makes new meth arrests BY JEBB JOHNSTON jjohnston@dailycorinthian.com

Greg Bullard Course instructor defend yourself,” said Bullard. “Proper awareness and the right attitude may be all it takes sometimes to keep you from harm.” Most attackers are looking for individuals who are weak according to Bullard. Bullard urges women to be aware of their surroundings if they find themselves in an unwanted situation. “Everyone needs some level of selfdefense capabilities to be safe,” said the 54 year old. “If you show your are

not going to be a target, a lot of situations will not happen.” Having that frame of mind takes time. “Knowing technique is not as important as doing it,” he said. “Once you practice it over time it becomes easy.” Those interested in attending the self-defense course at the Sportsplex should show up today at 5:30 p.m. For more information about the Northeast course call 662-720-7296. Cost for each course is $35.

‘Descendants’ delivers, Streep gives iron-clad performance els most of the time and has become emotionally uninvolved with her and his two Terry daughters, Burns Alexandra (Shailene Movie Critic Woodley) and Scottie (Amara Miller). When she has a boating accident, Matt returns home to look after the teenage Alexandra and the younger Scottie. Alexandra is rebellious and outspoken. Scottie is on the way to being like her older sister. Elizabeth is in a coma and Matt has to deal with his wife’s situation, his daughter’s rebellious attitude and the trust account. To top it all off, he discovers his wife has been cheating on him. As the plot becomes more complicated, it is obvious Matt has a lot of issues that must be dealt with. The acting and performances in “The Descendants” are outstanding in this excellent look at a heartbreaking tragedy with skeletons emerging from the closet.

an Oscar as Best Actor. The movie is based on a book by Kaui Hart Hemmings. I recommend “The Descendants” for an excellent original story packed with interesting characters and outstanding acting. The final scene is absolutely terrific. The Iron Lady, PG13, *** Meryl Streep, Jim Broaddent, Alexandra Roach, Harry Lloyd, Olivia Colman; The Weinstein Company; Director Phylllda Lloyd Meryl Streep has been nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Actress and

an Oscar for Best Actress for her portrayal in “The Iron Lady.” As in her other stellar performances, she inhabits the character of Margaret Thatcher, prime minister of the United Kingdom from 1979 to 1990. The film moves from time period to time period. Though Streep is an excellent actress, the script does not clearly visualize Thatcher’s persona. We know Thatcher was one tough lady, but moving from one decade to the other without giving audiences enough information, leaves viewers a little confused about her

contributions. There is no doubt Thatcher was a strong leader during the Falkland Islands conflict, however, what was really accomplished other than saying Great Britain won? Undeniably, she was also a stubborn driving force in Great Britain, believing it was her way or the highway. The Russian’s nickname for her, “Iron Lady,” was appropriate. “Iron Lady” lingers on Thatcher’s days after she had to leave politics. The movie would have been more interesting if it had shown more of her accom-

plishments, failures and legacy. Still, it is worth watching because of the excellent performance given by Meryl Streep.

GOP debates make Obama look good BY ROGER SIMON The Republican field debated for the 19th time Thursday night, and once again, the media promised us it was going to be a “make or break” event. Don’t believe the media. The media say the debates have been the most critical factor in the nominating race so far because the media have been forced to watch them all. And take notes. And write stories. And we want someone to share our pain: Someone like you. These debates are making the Obama staffers in Chicago so giddy that after each one they are tearing off their clothes, running through Millennium Park and howling at the moon. And why shouldn’t they? The American people, after being treated to hour upon hour of Republican candidates being allowed to say pretty much whatever they want, are slowly discovering something: Barack Obama doesn’t look that bad anymore. An NBC News/Wall Street Journal Poll released Wednesday said that “for the first time in six months, more people approve of the job the president is doing than disapprove.” Sure, the president’s approval/disapproval figure is only 48-46, but he has achieved that after six months of solid Republican debating. After six months of attack. After six months of being told that the American economy is doomed without a steady Republican hand on the tiller of state. So what else does the poll show? “More people said they believe the economy will get better (37 percent) in the next year rather than worse (17 percent). That’s the highest level in more than a year and a seven-point jump over last month.” Oh, my. This is not what the Republicans had in mind. The debates were supposed to winnow the field and leave the strongest Republican standing. True, the number of lecterns on the stage has been winnowed from nine to four, but what have the “fittest” Republicans been telling America about their agenda? Well, Thursday night, we had a good, long talk about America’s moon colony. What moon colony? Fair question. America currently lacks a moon colony. But Newt Gingrich would like a moon colony, and it won’t even cost a lot if we offer a “prize” to people to build one.” Newt says we have to have a moon colony because, if we don’t, the Chinese will have a moon colony, and if that happens, well, it will be bad. But Mitt Romney said a moon colony could cost $1 trillion. So how big would the prize have to be to get people to compete for building the moon colony? More than $1 trillion, I would guess. And where would the U.S. government get that kind of money? We would have to borrow it from the Chinese. Who could just hold onto it and build their own moon colony. Do you see now why Obama is doing better in the polls? Not that we are supposed to spend our time worrying about the substance of these debates. That is for professional fact-checkers. Instead, the media decide who wins and who loses, who gets made and who gets broken. Looking for the little things help me decide. Which is why my notes begin: “National Anthem. All put hands on hearts. Santorum and Mitt sing. Newt and Ron Paul don’t. Why?” Further notes: “When asked by Santorum if people in Massachusetts must buy health care, Mitt replies, ‘First of all, it’s not worth getting angry about.’ Presidency pays only $400,000 a year. So why would Romney get emotional about it?” “Debate supposed to be Newt’s best opportunity to win Florida, but at one point he says, ‘Gov. Romney is exactly right’ and at another he says, ‘I agree with Gov. Romney.’ Newt appears to be lacking in mindless aggression. This is no way to win a debate.” The debate wandered back and forth and finally ended up with CNN moderator Wolf Blitzer asking the candidates, “Why are you the one person on this stage most likely to beat Barack Obama?” My notes say that Ron Paul cited his “freedom message,” that Santorum said he could win Reagan Democrats and that Romney said America needs “dramatic, fundamental, extraordinary” change. Newt, I note, said, “This is a big choice election.” But he didn’t say the choice was standing on the stage.

Prayer for today Dear Lord, fill us with your love and peace so those we meet will want to know you because of what they see in us. Amen.

But try to impose those values on nations of the Muslim and Third Worlds, where homosexuality is a moral outrage and even a capital offense, and our ambassadors will find themselves in peril. Does McFaul believe democracy is a universally superior system of government? Yet our own founding fathers detested oneman, one-vote democracy. Democracy does not even get a mention in the Constitution, the Bill of Rights or the Federalist Papers. The author of the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson, believed society should be ruled by a “natural aristocracy” of “virtue and talent.” If the promotion of democracy is a mission of our diplomats, are we to subvert the monarchies of Morocco, Jordan, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia? When we see how democracy empowered the Muslim Brotherhood and Salafis in Egypt, Hamas in Gaza and Hezbollah in Lebanon, does it even make sense to insist that it be embraced by nations where the populations are pervasively antiAmerican? What is the universally right stand on capital punishment — the Rick Perry position in Texas or the Andrew Cuomo position in New York? In the United States, all

religions are to be treated equally and all kept out of the public square and the pubic schools. In a Muslim world that contains a fifth of mankind, Islam is the one true faith. Rival faiths have few or no rights. Are we going to push the Islamic world to treat all religions equally? We celebrate religious, racial and ethnic diversity. The Chinese, who persecute Uighurs, Tibetans, Christians and Falun Gong, detest that diversity and fear it will tear their country apart. We believe in freedom of speech and the press. Yet, in France, if you deny the Turks committed genocide against the Armenians in 1915, you are guilty of a crime, while in Turkey if you affirm that the Turks committed genocide, you have committed a crime. Should U.S. diplomats battle for repeal of both laws? Or mind our own business? If America wishes to lead the world, let us do it by example, as we once did, not by hectoring every nation on earth to adopt the American way, which as of now, does not seem to be working all that well for Americans. McFaul should stick to his diplomatic duties. Jefferson had it right, “We wish not to meddle with the internal affairs of any country.” Patrick J. Buchanan is the author of “Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?”

“courtesy,” obviously an offense he takes seriously. Whenever he resorts to trash talk — at one debate he promised to take President Barack Obama’s attack on his wealth and “stuff it down his throat” — it feels awkward. It is as if the Marquess of Queensberry briefly strayed into a mixed martial arts octagon. It’s not that Romney won’t fight. His Super PAC filleted Gingrich in Iowa, and his entire campaign apparatus is now working to crush the former House speaker in Florida. Yet, Romney himself has no relish for the task. In the first Florida debate, he worked early on to hit Gingrich with his entire opposition research file. Rushed and uncomfortable, he seemed to enjoy it as little as Gingrich did. When he got off the attack, he shifted back into his accustomed measured and unflappable mode. Gingrich is unburdened by any inner guardrails. He loves combat. As a campaigner, he can be loudmouthed, unscrupulous and angry. It’s a style that fits the public mood, and it has been validated through the decades in our culture. We’ve been taught to trust a let-it-all-hang-out spirit

over an ethos of emotional restraint. Unfortunately for Romney, if there were a yearbook for presidential candidates, he would be deemed “Least Likely to Weep in Public.” It’s an irony of Romney’s candidacy that his genuine reserve is taken as confirmation of his inauthenticity. If Romney doesn’t wear his emotions on his sleeve, he doesn’t wear his riches there, either. He seems uncomfortable with his own success, a classic WASP trait. When he says he makes no apologies for his wealth, he clearly would rather not be talking about his wealth at all. Donald Trump surely would advise him to mention his net worth, and inflate it, in every interview. But he lacks the brassiness of the natural braggart. If Romney seems alien, it’s not his Mormonism or bank account so much as his adherence to a code of conduct that was overthrown long ago, and now feels quaint and odd. His is the plight of the last WASP. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. He can be reached via e-mail: comments.lowry@nationalreview.com.

State AG: Killer pardoned by Barbour located in Wyoming BY HOLBROOK MOHR Associated Press

JACKSON — A convicted killer pardoned by former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour was in Wyoming with his fianci and tried to flee when he was found Sunday by investigators who served him with a court summons, authorities said Monday. Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood said Joseph Ozment tried to flee when investigators tracked him to a hotel in Laramie, Wyo. There wasn’t a warrant for Ozment’s arrest, but the summons will require him to show up for court hearings and check in every 24 hours with the Mississippi Department of Corrections. Hood wants to invalidate dozens of the 198 pardons that Barbour handed out before his term ended Jan. 10. A Hinds County, Miss., judge scheduled a hearing

on the matter for Friday. However, an attorney representing four former prisoners filed a motion Monday that seeks to block the judge from issuing a ruling that could send them back to prison. Hood said Ozment tried to flee the hotel in a Mercedes and the vehicle bumped one of the investigators. Ozment returned later on foot and was served with court papers. Hood said his investigator was standing behind the car when the vehicle hit him and he decided not to press charges. Ozment and four other inmates who were pardoned, including three other convicted killers, had worked as inmate trusties at the Governor’s Mansion. A judge had ordered them to check in after Hood requested a temporary restraining order. Ozment missed a court hearing last week, but the judge said she could not issue an arrest warrant

because he hadn’t been served a summons. During a news conference in his office, Hood handed out copies of a wedding announcement for Ozment and his fianci, LaChina Tillman, who Hood described as an engineer for a national defense contractor. Hood said the pictures that accompanied the announcement were taken at the Governor’s Mansion. He said the woman visited Ozment at the mansion 15 times. “It was very unusual circumstances, for murders, as to the freedoms they had” at the Governor’s Mansion, Hood said. As part of a tradition that went back decades, the most trusted prisoners in Mississippi were given jobs at the Governor’s Mansion. Governors usually gave them some type of early release when their terms ended. According to material provided by Hood, Oz-

ment and his fianci had been planning a sunset, beach wedding in the Florida Panhandle in March. A subsequent notice said the couple would have a small, private wedding at an undisclosed location due “to personal circumstances.” Hood, a Democrat, said he had a hard time finding Ozment and announced last week that his office was willing to pay confidential informants for information. Hood said the fact that there was no warrant for Ozment’s arrest made it harder to find him because friends and relatives were not legally compelled to cooperate and couldn’t face charges for harboring him. “A good citizen of Laramie, Wyo., gave us a good tip,” Hood said. The attorney general said he hasn’t decided how much to pay the tipster. Hood is challenging the legality of dozens of Barbour’s pardons. Hood

said about 170 people who got them did not meet the Mississippi Constitution’s requirement that a notice be published in a local newspaper for 30 days. Ten of the pardons went to people who were incarcerated. An attorney for four of the former trusties filed a motion Monday asking the Mississippi Supreme Court to issue a stay that would prevent the Hinds County Circuit Court from holding Friday’s hearing or ordering the men back to prison. The ruling could affect five other people who are being held in prison because of Hood’s restraining order. Most of the people whom Barbour pardoned had already served their sentences and had been out of prison for years. Some were convicted of drug charges or other comparatively minor crimes as far back as the 1960s and 1970s.

Some published notices for four weeks in weekly newspapers. Hood said four weeks is only 28 days, not the 30 days specified in the constitution, and that they should have published for five weeks. Others were published in daily newspapers but the ads didn’t run for a full 30 days before the pardon was signed. Hood has said about two dozen people published the proper notice. Barbour, a Republican who considered running for president in 2012 before backing out, has accused Hood of partisan politics. Hood is the only Democrat in statewide office. Hood said Thursday that the issue has nothing to do with politics and that’s it’s a matter of the law. Ozment was sentenced to life in prison in 1994 for the slaying of Ricky Montgomery during a robbery at a store in Desoto County.

Police: Dad of missing Maine tot not telling all Associated Press

WATERVILLE, Maine — Unable to find any evidence missing toddler Ayla Reynolds was abducted, police on Monday pressed the three adults who were home with her on the night she disappeared to provide a full account of what happened. State and local detectives believe Justin DiPietro, the girl’s father, and two other adults know more than they’ve told investigators so far, said Steve McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety. The notion that someone slipped into the small house and took Ayla without awakening anyone “doesn’t pass the straightface test,” McCausland said. “We’ve followed every conceivable piece of evidence that would follow their version of events, and we have found not one piece of evidence that supports an abduction,” he told The Associated Press. Police confirmed Sunday night that Ayla’s blood was found in the partially finished basement that DiPietro used as his bedroom. Relatives reported on a family-run website that they were told the blood was “more than a small cut would produce,” but police declined to say

“We’ve followed every conceivable piece of evidence that would follow their version of events, and we have found not one piece of evidence that supports an abduction.” Steve McCausland Maine Department of Public safety how much blood was discovered. DiPietro reported Ayla missing on Dec. 17, telling police he’d put his 20-month-old daughter to bed the night before and she wasn’t there the next morning. On the night Ayla was last seen, DiPietro was in the home with his girlfriend, Courtney Roberts, and they slept with Roberts’ child in the basement, McCausland said. DiPietro’s sister was with her young child on the main level of the one-story home, and Ayla was in a bedroom by herself, also on the main level, McCausland said Monday. DiPietro’s mother was not home that night. McCausland said detectives weren’t singling out any of the three adults, but “we think they know more than they’re telling us,” he said. Justin DiPietro declined to comment Monday, brushing past an Associated Press reporter out-

side his house without addressing questions before going inside and emphatically closing the door. The AP couldn’t find phone numbers for his girlfriend or his sister. Ayla was placed in her father’s care while her mother, Trista Reynolds, was in a substance abuse rehabilitation program in Lewiston. When she disappeared, the blond, blue-eyed toddler was wearing green pajamas with the words “Daddy’s Princess” on the front. One of her arms was in a soft cast after being broken in what police said was an accident. In Portland, Ayla’s maternal grandfather, Ronald Reynolds, said he took the day off from work on Monday because he couldn’t concentrate after incessant news reports. He said that he tries to stay positive but that negative thoughts sometimes creep into his thinking. Every night, he said, he gazes at Ayla’s photo before going to bed.

I-75 reopens after Detroit hit man says kid is innocent chain crashes kill 10 Associated Press

Associated Press

GAINESVILLE, Fla.— Fog and brushfire smoke cleared enough Monday to reopen all lanes of a Florida interstate where 10 people died in a mass pileup that tossed wreckage across the asphalt and left rescuers to search for survivors in the dark by listening for their screams. Another 18 people were hospitalized after a long line of cars and trucks collided early Sunday on a stretch of Interstate 75 south of Gainesville. Steven R. Camps and some friends were driving home hours before dawn Sunday when they were drawn into the massive wreck. “You could hear cars hitting each other. People were crying. People were screaming. It was crazy,” the Gainesville man said hours later. “If I could give you an idea of what it looked like, I would say it looked like the end of the world.” The interstate had been closed for a time before the accidents because of a mixture of fog and heavy smoke from a brush fire that may have been intentionally set. The decision to reopen it early Sunday will certainly be a focus of investigators, as will the question of how the fire may have started. The National Transportation Safety Board is among the agencies that have sent investigators to the scene. The NTSB said it is assessing whether it wants to formally join the probe, which is being led by the Florida Highway Patrol. The pileups happened around 3:45 a.m. Sunday on both sides of I-75. When rescuers first arrived, they could only listen for screams and moans because the poor visibility made it difficult to find victims in wreckage that was strewn for nearly a mile. At least a dozen cars and six tractor-trailers were involved, and some burst into flames. Hours later, twisted, burned-out vehicles were scattered across the pavement, with smoke still rising from the wreckage. Cars appeared to have

“You could hear cars hitting each other. People were crying. People were screaming. It was crazy.” Steven Camps Accident Witness smashed into the big rigs and, in one case, a motor home. Some cars were crushed beneath the heavier trucks. Reporters who were allowed to view the site saw bodies still inside a burnedout Grand Prix. One tractortrailer was burned down to its skeleton, charred pages of books and magazines in its cargo area. And the tires of every vehicle had burned away, leaving only steel belts. Before Camps hit the fog bank, a friend who was driving ahead of him in a separate vehicle called to warn of the road conditions. The friend said he had just seen an accident and urged Camps to be careful as he approached the Paynes Prairie area, just south of Gainesville. A short time later, Camps said, traffic stopped along the northbound lanes. “You couldn’t see anything. People were pulling off the road,” he said. Camps said he began talking about the road conditions to a man in the car stopped next to him when another vehicle hit that man’s car. The man’s vehicle was crushed under a semi-truck stopped in front of them. Camps said his car was hit twice, but he and another friend were able to jump out. They took cover in the grass on the shoulder of the road. All around them, cars and trucks were on fire, and they could hear explosions as the vehicles burned. “It was happening on both sides of the road, so there was nowhere to go. It blew my mind,” he said, explaining that the scene “looked like someone was picking up cars and throwing them.”

IONIA, Mich. — A Detroit hit man in prison for eight murders said he’s willing to publicly take responsibility for four more to help clear a young man who claims he’s innocent of the slayings and confessed at age 14 only to satisfy police. Vincent Smothers’ testimony would be the most crucial evidence yet to try to persuade a judge to throw out Davontae Sanford’s guilty plea and free him from a nearly 40-year prison sentence. In an interview with The Associated Press, Smothers declared: “He’s not guilty. He didn’t do it.” Smothers said he never used a 14-year-old accomplice — blind in one eye and learning disabled — to carry out his paid hits, mostly victims tied to Detroit’s drug trade. Ironically, there’s no dispute that Smothers confessed to the so-called Runyon Street slayings when he was captured in 2008, but prosecutors have never charged him and never explained why. “I understand what prison life is like; it’s miserable. To be here and be innocent — I don’t know

what it’s like,” Smothers said of Sanford, who is now 19. “He’s a kid, Smothers and I hate for him to do the kind of time they’re giving him.” Told about the AP interview, Sanford’s attorney said she soon would ask a judge to bring Smothers to court. “If we can get Mr. Smothers up on the stand, it would be awesome for Davontae,” Kim McGinnis said Monday. Smothers, 30, spoke over a phone Saturday at the Michigan Reformatory with a glass window separating him from an AP reporter. He’s 130 miles west of Detroit where he unflinchingly killed people on streets, inside homes and even while he talked on a cell phone. He finally was arrested in an alley in 2008 while holding his daughter. Smothers quickly confessed to a series of murders, including the execution-style shooting of a Detroit officer’s estranged

wife for $50. He says he was paid $60,000 over a two-year period. He eventually pleaded guilty to eight slayings and was sentenced to at least 52 years in prison. Sanford, meanwhile, has been fighting to get out of prison. A Wayne County judge soon is expected to decide whether to throw out his guilty plea to four killings on Runyon Street in 2007. McGinnis has worked to discredit the police investigation. She discovered major holes, including Smothers’ confession and the fact that a gun used in the murders was found at the home of an accomplice who, like Smothers, hasn’t been charged. Prosecutors, however, have refused to back away from Sanford’s guilty plea. At times, they have acknowledged that Smothers may have been involved but they won’t rule out a role for the younger man. “There is no link between me and him,” Smothers told the AP. “I never knew him.” McGinnis has been desperate to get Smothers on the witness stand. He invoked his right against selfincrimination last year but was willing to allow his at-

torney, Gabi Silver, to testify about what he told her about Runyon Street. The prosecutor, however, objected and courts said no. “I’ll testify if possible and answer all questions truthfully. Anything I will say will be the truth,” Smothers told the AP. “I don’t lie.” The prosecutor’s office had no comment Monday about Smothers’ willingness to testify. Silver said Smothers has “always wanted to right this wrong.” “It’s too bad that a kid who didn’t have anything to do with this crime is sitting in prison. That to me is a tragedy,” Silver said. With short hair, clear face and a thin build, Smothers looks much younger than his 30 years. He smiled often during the interview and expressed dry humor, especially when he described odd jobs — drywall, plumbing, roofing — while a student at Detroit’s Kettering High School and later a factory job in Warren. “You sound surprised,” Smothers said of his resume. He declined to talk about why he became a hit man but said, “I understand people think I’m a monster.”

Tech companies team up to combat email scams Associated Press

NEW YORK — Google, Facebook and other big tech companies are jointly designing a system for combating email scams known as phishing. Such scams try to trick people into giving away passwords and other personal information by sending emails that look as if they come from a legitimate bank, retailer or other business. When Bank of America customers see emails that appear to come from the bank, they might click on a link that takes them to a fake site mimicking the real Bank of America’s. There, they might enter personal details, which scam artists can capture and use for fraud. To combat that, 15 major technology and financial companies have formed an organization to design a system for authenticating emails from

legitimate senders and weeding out fakes. The new system is called DMARC — short for Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting and Conformance. DMARC builds upon existing techniques used to combat spam. Those techniques are designed to verify that an email actually came from the sender in question. The problem is there are multiple approaches for doing that and no standard way of dealing with emails believed to be fake. The new system addresses that by asking email senders and the companies that provide email services to share information about the email messages they send and receive. In addition to authenticating their legitimate emails using the existing systems, companies can receive alerts from email providers every time their domain name is used

in a fake message. They can then ask the email providers to move such messages to spam folder or block them outright. According to Google, about 15 percent of nonspam messages in Gmail come from domains that are protected by DMARC. This means Gmail users “don’t need to worry about spoofed messages from these senders,” Adam Dawes, a product manager at Google, said in a blog post. “With DMARC, large email senders can ensure that the email they send is being recognized by mail providers like Gmail as legitimate, as well as set policies so that mail providers can reject messages that try to spoof the senders’ addresses,” Dawes wrote. Work on DMARC started about 18 months ago. Beginning Monday, other companies can sign up with the organization,

whether they send emails or provide email services. For email users, the group hopes DMARC will mean fewer fraudulent messages and scams reaching their inbox. The group’s founders are email providers Microsoft Corp., Yahoo Inc., AOL Inc. and Google Inc.; financial service providers Bank of America Corp., Fidelity Investments and eBay Inc.’s PayPal; online service companies Facebook, LinkedIn Corp. and American Greetings Corp. and security companies Agari, Cloudmark, eCert, Return Path and the Trusted Domain Project. Google uses it already, both in its email sender and email provider capacities. The heft of the companies that have already signed on to the project certainly helps, and its founders are hoping it will be more broadly adopted to become an industry standard.

Buy low on natural gas? The price of natural gas is at its lowest level in 10 years. It closed at $2.71 per 1,000 cubic feet Monday after falling to $2.32 earlier this month. That has hurt stocks of natural gas drillers. And utilities, because the price of gas is used to set the price of electricity in many markets. But this could be a good time to buy companies that will benefit if demand for gas grows and sends its price higher. Gas is replacing coal in some power plants. Manufacturers that depend on gas are expanding U.S. operations. More trucks and buses are using gas. Investors should be patient because the price of gas may stay low for some time or even fall. One way to reduce the risk: Buy small amounts of stock periodically. Here are three stocks that financial analysts recommend. We rank them on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 the riskiest. Royal Dutch Shell (RDS-A) Risk level: 2 Monday close: $70.92 52 week range: $57.97-$77.97 PE ratio: 7 A relatively safe way to bet on gas is a huge company that’s not dependent only on gas and that pays a good dividend. Shell is benefiting from high oil prices while also increasing gas production. Starting this

year, it will produce more natural gas than oil. And, with a dividend yield of 4 percent, “you get paid to wait (for higher natural gas prices),” says Phil Weiss of Argus Research. NRG Energy (NRG) Risk level: 3 Monday close: $16.80 52 week range: $16.06$25.66 PE ratio: 15 NRG’s businesses include power production in 11 states. For every 50-cent gain in the long-term gas price, the stock could add $6.50, according to Morgan Stanley. Besides its potential for higher earnings if the price of gas rises, analysts like its big operations in the strong Texas electricity market and its solar farms. Devon Energy (DVN) Risk level: 4 Monday close: $64.61 52 week range: $50.74-$93.56 PE ratio: 6 Analysts like the fact that this driller has a strong balance sheet and a growing portfolio of fields that have a high concentration of oil. Also, Devon has protected its income by hedging about a third of its gas production for this year. That means it has bought financial contracts intended to help protect it from price swings.

Gauging consumers’ confidence

Consumer confidence index est. The Conference Board releases 68 its index of consumer confidence 70 for January, and economists expect an improved reading. Unemployment has edged lower and the stock market has recovered from a turbulent summer and fall. That may have consumers feeling more optimistic. Forecasts are for the index to rise to 68. That’s still well short of the 90 or better reading that reflects a healthy economy.

BIGGERSVILLE — Jazz Garner has taken it up a notch in Corinth’s late-season run. The junior busted out for a career-high 23 points, including a 10-of-13 showing from the line, as Corinth took the rubber match with Biggersville by a 75-65 count. Garner has been the Warriors’ leading scorer twice in Corinth’s three games in four days stretch. The guard tallied a then-career-best 18 in Saturday’s win at Adamsville, Tenn., and chipped in

15 against rival Alcorn Central last Friday. Corinth (22-3) completes its four games in five days trek tonight against Shannon on Senior Night. The Warriors can claim the Division 1-4A regular-season title with a victory of nine points or more. The Lions, which have wrapped up the 1-1A title, travel to Thrasher. Biggersville (19-7) took a 31-29 lead at intermission. The two rivals went backand-forth in the final period, until Eric Richardson put the visitors up for good with a

pair of free throws with 4:40 remaining. Richardson closed strong, scoring 14 of his 18 points in the final period. Corinth scored 31 points in the fourth, the bulk coming from the stripe. After attempting just five free throws through three quarters, the Warriors attempted 24 in the final period, the bulk coming the final 1:58 as Biggersville tried to rally from a sevenpoint deficit. The Warriors were 18-of24 from the line in the fourth, including a 9-of-12 showing by Garner.

Deione Weeks also shouldered the scoring load early, scoring eight in the first en route to a 19-point night. Dexter Stafford paced the Lions with 25. His 12 — including a slam — in the second helped BHS erase a fourpoint deficit and take a 31-29 lead into the break. Darrien Williams added 17, 13 coming in the even quarters.

New Astros’ owner won’t change name Associated Press

HOUSTON — New Houston Astros owner Jim Crane says he won’t change the team’s name. Crane said last week he was considering a switch. But he emailed a video message to season-ticket holders on Monday saying, “one thing that we are not going to change is the name.” He says he made the decision after receiving “strong feedback and consensus among season-ticket holders and many fans.” He then added that “the Houston Astros are here to stay.” The team was established in 1962 as the Colt .45s and has been called the Astros since 1965 when the name was changed to coincide with the move to the Astrodome. Crane and his staff have been looking for ways to improve the team.

INDEPENDENCE. Ohio — Cavaliers guard Daniel Gibson remained hospitalized in Boston for more tests on a neck infection. Gibson was at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, where he was being treated with antibiotics for what the team said has been diagnosed as a soft tissue infection in his neck. The team said Monday night that Gibson would stay in the hospital for additional treatment and tests. Gibson, who has been with the Cavs since 2006, did not play in Sunday night’s win over the Celtics because of a sore neck. He stayed behind after the team returned to Cleveland following the game. Both Gibson and starting guard Anthony Parker will miss Tuesday’s home game against Boston, and Cavs coach Byron Scott doesn’t know how long he’ll be without the two players. Parker has been bothered by a sore lower back, which limited him to 14 minutes in Sunday’s win over the Celtics. Parker sat out Monday’s practice as the team prepared for their second game in three days with the Celtics. Scott said Parker was hurting early in the game at Boston. “I just remember him going up and down the floor a couple times and he was kind of grimacing,” Scott said. “Then he gave me the sign to take him out. I don’t think it had to do with playing 10 minutes in the first quarter.” Please see GIBSON | 9

Winless on road, UT travels to No. 1 UK Associated Press

KNOXVILLE, Tenn.— Coach Cuonzo Martin says his Tennessee Volunteers are better now than when they nearly upset Kentucky in Knoxville. He also knows there’s no reason for people to believe it just yet. “Are we a better team? Yes, we’re a better team, but I

think you have to go on the road in a hostile environment and prove it,” Martin said Monday. Tennessee (10-11, 2-4 Southeastern Conference) hasn’t proven it yet, and it will be a tough thing to do this week. The Vols travel to Lexington to face the topranked Wildcats (20-1, 7-0),

who have the nation’s longest home winning streak at 47, including a 46-0 mark under coach John Calipari at Rupp Arena. Tennessee hasn’t won a true road game, and its most recent road trip resulted in a 65-47 loss at Vanderbilt. The Vols nearly pulled out wins at Mississippi State and

Georgia but couldn’t close out either game. Calipari thinks Tennessee has improved since Kentucky’s 65-62 win in Knoxville on Jan. 14. “They’re a good team,” he said. “The only team that really got them was Vandy. EvPlease see VOLS | 9

No gimmick Giants arrive at Super Bowl Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS — Unlike four years ago when they dressed in black suits as a symbol of unity before facing the undefeated Patriots, the Giants returned to the Super Bowl this time with no sartorial gimmicks. Touching down in India-

napolis for their rematch with New England on Sunday, the Giants are simply a confident team. They believe in themselves as much as they did in 2008 when they ruined the Patriots’ perfect season with a stunning 17-14 victory in Arizona. “We had no doubt,” guard

Chris Snee said Monday, referring to the Giants’ feelings four years ago. “You have to be a confident team when you get on the plane. You reach this game for a reason. It’s not by chance. You have to be confident coming out here.” The Giants tried to demonstrate that four years ago with

GIBSON: Not many replacements CONTINUED FROM 8

Parker, who is averaging 6 points and 23 minutes, sat out one game last week because of his back. The Cavs don’t have many options to replace Parker or Gibson, who started the game Parker sat out. Rookie Mychel Thompson played the entire fourth quarter on Sunday against the Celtics. Also, 6-foot-6 Alonzo Gee, who has been playing small forward, could move into the backcourt as he has done at times this season. There’s also a chance the team could recall Manny Harris from their Canton affiliate in the NBA Development League. Harris was named the D-League’s player of the week after averaging 25 points and 7.3 rebounds in three games.

VOLS: One of the better SEC defenses CONTINUED FROM 8

ery other game they could have won I’m glad (our rematch) is at home, I can tell you.” Wildcats sophomore forward Terrence Jones doesn’t take his team’s dominance at home for granted. “Every game in the SEC for us is we get the best of every team,” he said. “We really have to respect each team in the SEC.” The Vols have become one of the better defensive teams in the SEC, thanks especially to how they’ve played at home. They rank third in the SEC in conference play in points allowed per game (59), second in field goal defense (38.1 percent) and second in rebounds per game (38.1). But on the road, Tennessee has struggled to hit its shots and take care of the ball. The Vols rank 10th in conference play in scoring (58.5 points per game) and last in turnovers (17.2 per game). Kentucky could feast off those marks. The Wildcats are second in the nation in defensive field goal percentage at 36.4 percent and in blocked shots with 204, including 101 by 6-foot-10 freshman Anthony Davis. The Vols’ only win away from Knoxville came in the Maui Invitational? against host Chaminade in what was technically a neutral site game, and they haven’t won in Lexington since a 75-67 victory on Feb. 7, 2006. “I think it’s more mental than anything,” Martin said. “I think our preparation is there. It’s just a matter of carrying out assignments, being ready to play, having fun and embracing the atmosphere more than anything. I just think it’s more mental right now, the mental toughness part of it.” Kentucky has six players averaging 9.9 points or more. Davis is averaging a double-double with 13.3 points and 10.3 rebounds per game, while the Wildcats’ sixth man, senior guard Darius Miller is hitting 63 percent of his shots over the last four games.

GIANTS: ‘I mean we wouldn’t have boarded the plane if we didn’t expect to win,’ said Rolle CONTINUED FROM 8

about them. If they win, no one will be surprised. They beat the Patriots in the regular season and they come to Indianapolis with almost as much momentum as New England, which won 10 in a row. The streak for Eli Manning and company is only five, but the Giants seem to be getting better each week. Tuck insisted that teams don’t get to this point in the season without believing in themselves. “It can be misunderstood for cockiness, and whatever else,” Tuck said. “But at the

end of the day, when we step on that football field, we believe we are going to win that football game. If you ask any athlete and he tells you anything different, then there is something wrong.” Safety Antrel Rolle was his usual self when asked about being confident. “I mean, we wouldn’t have boarded the plane if we didn’t expect to win,” said Rolle, who lost a Super Bowl in February, 2009 while playing for Arizona against the Steelers. “I think that is the bottom line. We have come here for one thing and one thing only which is to win. We are expect-

ing to win this game come Sunday.” The Patriots (15-3) certainly understand how the Giants feel. They feel the same way. “Listen, this is the last game of the season. I’m pretty sure that the Giants want to win and we want to win, point blank,” defensive tackle Vince WIlfork said. “You have two good football teams who don’t want to walk away with an ‘L’. Both sides are going to have to play really good football and not give up anything cheap. Trust me, we’re not the only ones that feel that we want to win this ballgame. They’re sitting over there saying the same thing. This

is the last game, and the biggest game of your career. This is what you play for.” The Giants (12-7) had a much different send off than the Patriots, who arrived Sunday after attending a rally in Foxborough, Mass., that drew 25,000 people. Coach Tom Coughlin’s Giants left from team headquarters in the Meadowlands around 11:30 a.m. There was no rally and only a few extra fans showed up to wave goodbye. Before leaving, the team held what is a normal Saturday walkthrough and left at the same time they would

normally leave for a road game. The short flight was uneventful. It was quiet and the players either watched a movie or slept, Snee said. “You get off and you know you are at the Super Bowl,” Snee said. “The media is there and there is a small red carpet. It’s exciting.” Manning said the rest of the week is a time to focus. “When you feel you have a good team or players and an opportunity to go win a championship, you don’t want to let those slip away,” said Manning, the Super Bowl MVP of the Giant’s win over the Patriots four years ago.

Miami Heat overcome slow start aginst New Orleans Associated Press

MIAMI — LeBron James and Dwyane Wade each scored 22 points, Mike Miller added 14 off the bench and the Miami Heat shook off a slow start to run away from the New Orleans Hornets 109-95 on Monday night. James added 11 rebounds and eight assists for Miami, which won for the eighth time in nine games and ended up with six players in double figures. Chris Bosh and Norris Cole each scored 12 for the Heat, and Mario Chalmers added 11. Miami was down 45-33 midway through the second quarter, then outscored New Orleans 76-

50 the rest of the way. Jarrett Jack and Carl Landry each scored 14 for New Orleans, which lost for the 17th time in 19 games after a 2-0 start. The Hornets

managed 25 rebounds — the lowest total in the NBA this season. BULLS 98, WIZARDS 88 Derrick Rose scored a

season-high 35 points, Carlos Boozer had 18 and Kyle Korver added 17 to lead Chicago over Washington. One day after a four-point loss in Miami, the Bulls re-

bounded to improve their Eastern Conference-leading record to 18-5. They had dropped two of three. Meanwhile, the Wizards have lost 16 of 20.

Photo of mom offers reason to limit visitors DEAR ABBY: Recently my 80-year-old mother was admitted to the hospital, gravely ill. She had been undergoing chemotherapy and caught double pneumonia. My 36-yearold niece went to visit Mama, took pictures of her lying in her hospital bed and emailed the photos to everyone. It was shocking and upsetting seeing my mother this way. Many of the people who received the photos had not been able to visit her. Abby, what’s your opinion on this, and how should it have been handled? – SINCERELY UPSET IN FLORIDA DEAR SINCERELY UPSET: I don’t blame you for being upset. What your niece did was a gross invasion of privacy. Is this how your

mother would have wanted people to see her? If the answer no, your Abigail is niece owes Van Buren your mother Dear Abby an apology. If your mother is still hospitalized, talk to the nurse in charge of the unit she’s in and give her a list of visitors who should have access to her. Explain why you want visitation restricted, and in the future your mother’s privacy will be assured. DEAR ABBY: My sister’s husband died suddenly three years ago. “Pamela” now says she’s in love with a 60-yearold man I’ll call “Mickey,” whose company is doing construction work on her home. She has put on a

new roof, siding and added a deck, and the jobs are not ending. Next on the schedule is a shed and a new coat of paint for the inside of the house. Friends and family are concerned that Pamela is scheduling more jobs as a way to see Mickey. When I pointed out that he hasn’t even invited her out for coffee, she claimed they have a “relationship” because he hugged her, kissed her on the cheek and told her, “You’re my girlfriend.” Pamela has invited Mickey to family dinners and events, but he turns her down because “he’s visiting relatives out of town.” He has never invited her to go anywhere. My sister should be ready to date now, but no one lives up to this man. None of us have met him, and we’re worried she is

just imagining there’s a relationship. What can we do before Pamela goes broke or crashes emotionally? – SOMETHING’S MISSING IN NEW JERSEY DEAR SOMETHING’S MISSING: Do you know the name of Mickey’s company? Start checking him out. Does he have a contractor’s license? A Facebook page? Does anybody in the lumber or paint business know him? Something does seem fishy. Mickey may be married and your sister may be grasping at straws. But when all is said and done, it is her money. DEAR ABBY: I am a 12-year-old girl who needs your advice. My friend and I went shopping a while back and she lent me money to buy a few things. However, later that day she lost the bag that had

my stuff in it at the mall. One day she brought up that I have not paid her back, but I said I don’t think I should have to pay her back since she lost the stuff she bought for me. Who do you think is right? – NEEDS ADVICE IN OAKLAND, CALIF. DEAR NEEDS ADVICE: You are. She’s out the money; you’re out the “goods.” You’re even. However, from now on when you buy something, take responsibility for it and keep it in your possession. That way, if something is lost, you will have no one to blame but yourself.

Horoscopes by Holiday BY HOLIDAY MATHIS The Saturn-Uranus opposition will be exact today, and the effects will spread like contrails in the sky through the spring and summer. This is a global aspect, but it still has to do with you personally. The things that happen at the societal level are the result of someone’s personal choice -- and another person’s and another person’s. You count. ARIES (March 21-April 19). Judgmental thinking hurts you. Whatever you think about the other person, chances are you’re even harder on yourself.

Negativity chips away at your personal power. Find something to like about everyone you meet. TAURUS (April 20May 20). You don’t have to go out of your way to do something original -- just do what comes naturally. You cannot help but make a unique imprint on the world. Being different isn’t bad or good. It’s just different. GEMINI (May 21June 21). Take the high road. As you respect another person’s rights and help him or her succeed, you are helping yourself, too. Your reward may not come for another two weeks, but it’s still coming. CANCER (June 22July 22). You’ll find out what a person’s expectation is and cater to that desire. Instead of treating people how you want to be treated, you treat them how they want to be treated -- a most effective choice. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll be meeting with people for an extended time and will

benefit from a little preparation. Think about your subjects. What about them piques your curiosity? Ask excellent questions and take interest in the answers. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Nothing good ever comes from lies. You’ll hear something that doesn’t seem true. It’s not necessary to call out the dishonesty, but do take note of it. Avoid future contact with untruthful people. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re going to be busy over the next few days, and your schedule will change often. It is better not to promise anything -- you’ll be comfortable later if you keep your plans as loose as possible now. SCORPIO (Oct. 24Nov. 21). You’ll be a coach to someone in an area of life that has nothing to do with fitness or sports. Socrates was a coach, too, you know! You’ll tap into ancient wisdom as you encourage someone toward greatness. SAGITTARIUS (Nov.

Making This World a Better Place The inspired writer declared in Proverbs 14:34, “Righteousness exalts a nation.” The desperation of our nation in areas of morality is apparent to any citizen. Fortunately, the Bible gives us many positive teachings that will help any government and people on this earth today. First of all, we who are Christians should pray for the rulers of the world, 1 Timothy 2:2. We must “render to Caesar then things which are Caesar’s,” Matthew 22:21 in paying our taxes; obeying the law of the land and honoring our rulers, Romans 13:1, 1 Peter 2:17. It is only when earthly powers try to force us to go against God’s will that we should resist: “We ought to obey God rather than men,” Acts 5:29. We should never be afraid to speak of heaven’s way - even before kings, Psalm 119:46. Secondly, we must contribute pure, godly lives of influence before our neighbors in order to improve society. We must have the attributes found in Philippians four: “joy and happiness,” v.4; “gratitude,” v.6; “moderation,” v.5; “contentment,” v.7; “peace,” v.7; and “pure and noble thinking,” v.8. These traits will bless any community for as the Bible says, “Against such things there is no law,” Galations 5:23. Thirdly, we can improve our nation by obeying the words of Chirst found in Matthew 22. In this passage we are taught the three fundamental issues for success: “love God supremely” (v. 37), “love your neighbor sincerely” (v. 39) and “love ourselves properly (v. 39). Getting these priorities straight will make a balanced journey possible in this evil, godless world. It will help everyone see his own worth and the worth of others and to fit this into the pattern designed by God. We could never have the typical “welfare state” because each one would be unselfishly working to help others. Everyone would remember the command of 2 Thessalonians 3:10, “If a man will not work, neither let him eat.” Laziness would die out and all would follow Galatians 6:9, “let us not grow weary in doing good, for in due season we will reap if we faint not.” Finally, every nation on earth would be enriched by people who, as 1 Thessalonians 5:18 says, “In everything give thanks.” We are not to murmur or complain, but rather we are to count our many blessings, Philippians 2:14. The question of Jesus still haunts us today, “Where are the nine?” Luke 17:17. Unfortunately, only one of the ten lepers returned to give thanks to Jesus; the sad fact is the ratio is about the same today! If members of the church were happy and thankful as the Bible tells to be, we could abolish much of the bad news the world feeds on now. We could “turn the world upside down,” Acts 17:6, with the sunlight of God’s love beaming in our souls. How deeply this world needs to see the joy of our salvation in the Lord! If anyone has the right to be happy, the Christian does, Psalm 144:15. Let us be a blessing to our nation by practicing the precepts of righteousness, beginning where we are today, Romans 14:7.

Authorities: US ill-prepared for oil spill off Cuba Associated Press

MIAMI — The U.S. is not ready to handle an oil spill if drilling off the Cuban coast goes awry but can be better prepared with monitoring systems and other basic steps, experts told government officials Monday. The comments at a congressional subcommittee hearing in the Miami Beach suburb of Sunny Isles come more than a week after a huge oil rig arrived in Cuban waters to begin drilling a deepwater exploratory well. Similar development is expected off the Bahamas next year, but decades of tense relations between the U.S. and Cuba makes cooperation in protecting the Florida Straits particularly tricky. With memories of the Deepwater Horizon spill in the Gulf of Mexico still fresh, state and federal officials fear even the perception of oil flowing toward Florida beaches could devastate an economy that claims

about $57 billion from tourism. Florida International University Professor John Proni told officials to be proactive. He is leading a consortium of researchers on U.S. readiness to handle a spill. “For the last few years, my colleagues and I have been visiting Washington to say the best time to start preparing for an oil spell is before it happens,” Proni told leaders of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, in a hotel-turnedhearing room overlooking the turquoise waters the group convened to protect. Proni said he has seen little action from officials in Washington, though they responded positively. U.S. officials have turned their attention to preventing future spills since the Deepwater Horizon rig leased by BP blew up in April 2010, causing the well to blow out and unleashing millions of

gallons of oil in the Gulf of Mexico. Crude washed up on pristine shoreline, soiled wildlife and left a region dependent on tourist dollars scrambling to rebuild its image. Coast Guard officials said Monday they did not know if Cuba had started drilling. Experts testified current estimates have surface oil from a spill moving as quickly as 3 miles an hour due to the Gulfstream, but that the fast-moving current would make it difficult for the oil to quickly cross the Florida Straits. Rear Adm. William Baumgartner, commander of the Coast Guard region that covers the Florida Straits, said a likely scenario would have the oil spreading and reaching U.S. waters in six to 10 days. Proni said that lack of specificity is the problem. He wants a system that can monitor changes in underwater sounds to immediately alert U.S. of-

ficials to a spill or other unusual activity. He also wants the U.S. to invest in developing better computer models to predict oil movement and to do an assessment of the existing ecosystem and the type of oil Cuba possesses. That way, experts can better pinpoint any damage and find out if it came from Cuban wells. Proni said the fastmoving water would make it difficult to burn the oil or strain it, as was done to halt the spread of the Deepwater Horizon spill. He added that more research is needed on the risks of using chemicals that break down the oil into tiny droplets. Baumgartner said his agency has been working to develop a response plan. The Coast Guard and private response teams have been granted the required visas under the U.S. embargo to work with the Cuban government and its partners should a problem arise.

Since March 2011, the agency has been working with Repsol RDF, the Spanish company leasing the rig off Cuba, and inspected the rig earlier this month. The rig was given a good bill of health. Asked Monday about the rig’s readiness, though, Baumgartner said inspectors found some minor problems with the safety systems that would have kept the ship from being allowed to drill in U.S. waters. He said it was unclear whether the required repairs had been made. U.S. Rep. Mario DiazBalart, one of three South Florida Cuban-American lawmakers who attended the hearing, said he hopes the Obama administration will quickly respond to the consortium’s concerns. He added that Proni’s proposals could be applied to the Gulf of Mexico, where many more rigs are already drilling for oil in U.S. waters.

Meanwhile, U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, has authored a bill that would sanction those who help Cuba develop its oil reserves. “We can’t stop Repsol from drilling now, but we can act to deter future leaders to avoid the Castro brothers becoming the oil tycoons of the Caribbean,” she told the committee. Fellow South Floridian U.S. Rep. David Rivera is proposing to expand the 1990 Oil Pollution Act to fully cover companies operating outside U.S. waters, in the event oil reaches U.S. territory. The 1990 law requires oil companies to repay government agencies for any cleanup costs for spills; it also requires that companies have plans for preventing and cleaning up spills. But Chairman John Micah, R-Fla., questioned whether the U.S. could enforce any law outside its own waters.

Pythons apparently wiping out mammals in Everglades Associated Press

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — A burgeoning population of huge pythons — many of them pets that were turned loose by their owners when they got too big — appears to be wiping out large numbers of raccoons, opossums, bobcats and other mammals in the Everglades, a study says. The study, published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, found that sightings of mediumsize mammals are down dramatically — as much as 99 percent, in some cases — in areas where pythons and other large, non-native constrictor snakes are known to be lurking.

Scientists fear the pythons could disrupt the food chain and upset the Everglades’ environmental balance in ways difficult to predict. “The effects of declining mammal populations on the overall Everglades ecosystem, which extends well beyond the national park boundaries, are likely profound,” said John Willson, a research scientist at Virginia Tech University and co-author of the study. Tens of thousands of Burmese pythons, which are native to Southeast Asia, are believed to be living in the Everglades, where they thrive in the warm, humid climate.

While many were apparently released by their owners, others may have escaped from pet shops during Hurricane Andrew in 1992 and have been reproducing ever since. Burmese pythons can grow to be 26 feet long and more than 200 pounds, and they have been known to swallow animals as large as alligators. They and other constrictor snakes kill their prey by coiling around it and suffocating it. The National Park Service has counted 1,825 Burmese pythons that have been caught in and around Everglades National Park since 2000. Among the largest so far

was a 156-pound, 16.4foot one captured earlier this month. For the study, researchers drove 39,000 miles along Everglades-area roads from 2003 through 2011, counting wildlife spotted along the way and comparing the results with surveys conducted on the same routes in 1996 and 1997. The researchers found staggering declines in animal sightings: a drop of 99.3 percent among raccoons, 98.9 percent for opossums, 94.1 percent for white-tailed deer and 87.5 percent for bobcats. Along roads where python populations are believed to be smaller, declines

were lower but still notable. Rabbits and foxes, which were commonly spotted in 1996 and 1997, were not seen at all in the later counts. Researchers noted slight increases in coyotes, Florida panthers, rodents and other mammals, but discounted that finding because so few were spotted overall. “The magnitude of these declines underscores the apparent incredible density of pythons in Everglades National Park,” said Michael Dorcas, a professor at Davidson College in North Carolina and lead author of the study. Although scientists cannot definitively say the

pythons are killing off the mammals, the snakes are the prime suspect. The increase in pythons coincides with the mammals’ decrease, and the decline appears to grow in magnitude with the size of the snakes’ population in an area. A single disease appears unlikely to be the cause since several species were affected. The report says the effect on the overall ecosystem is hard to predict. Declines among bobcats and foxes, which eat rabbits, could be linked to pythons’ feasting on rabbits. On the flip side, declines among raccoons, which eat eggs, may help some turtles, crocodiles and birds.
