Severe storm cleanup begins Weather service says microburst of 70-80 mph caused extensive damage BY STEVE BEAVERS

BETHEL SPRINGS, Tenn. — Cleanup continued for a second day from a destructive storm that hit a small town and other parts of McNairy County. Some roads remained closed as Pickwick Electric worked to restore power to homes and businesses harmed in the storm. No injuries were report-

ed from the storm that hit the West Tennessee county. “All of our assets are in place. We just have to get the utilities somewhat up before we begin the cleanup,” said emergency management director Rudy Moore. Moore said a preliminary assessment found $1.2 million of damage to structures alone. “That was from a windshield

assessment,” said the director. “We counted 85 homes and another 15-20 mobile homes with major or minor damage.” A spokesperson with the National Weather Service in Memphis said Thursday afternoon the destruction was caused by “a microburst with winds peaking from 70-80 mph.” A microburst is a very lo-

calized column of sinking air, producing damaging divergent and straight-line winds at the surface that are similar to, but distinguishable from, tornadoes, which generally have convergent damage. A microburst often has high winds that can knock over grown trees and usually last for a couple of seconds to several minutes. In some cases, a microburst can

cause more damage than a tornado. “To me, wind is wind,” said Moore. According to the emergency management director, the storm's path began near the county line on U.S. Highway 64 West, causing damage in places such as Rose Creek, Sandy Flat, Please see STORM | 2A

Huge prom proposal gets girl’s attention BY BOBBY J. SMITH

When Zack Marcinek decided to ask his girlfriend to the Kossuth High School prom, he knew he really wanted to get creative. The idea Zack would use came to him while working in The Corner Cafe, a restaurant on the corner of Polk Street and Shiloh Road owned by Zack’s mother, Debbie Childers. The restaurant just happens to have some really big windows. “I just looked out the window and it kind of came to me,” the KHS senior recalled. Zack put his plan into action Monday. Using blue window paint, Zack wrote out his question — “Prom Y or N?” — in bold blue letters taller than most people. “These were the perfect windows for it,” he pointed out. The recipient of the question was Zack’s girlfriend, Scarlett Helms, an 18-year-old nursing student at Northeast. Before he could get an answer, Zack had to figure out just the right way to get Scarlett to see the question. “He tricked me,” said Scarlett. “He said, ‘Come get me at the restaurant,’ and then when I saw it, my jaw dropped. It was amazing!” The sky was blue, the weather was nice — and Scarlett said, “Yes.” After dating for six months, the young couple will be going to the prom together.

Kossuth High School senior Zack Marcinek asked his girlfriend Scarlett Helms to the prom by creatively utilizing the windows of his mom’s restaurant. She approved of the unique proposal and said yes. “It was perfect,” Scarlett said. Now Zack and Scarlett have some time to sort out the de-

tails. The KHS prom is scheduled for March 29. If the way Zack asked Scarlett

to be his prom date is any indication, it is likely they will find a unique way of going in style.

“I’m thinking about getting a tractor to drive up there,” said Zack, smiling.

Alcorn County 4-Hers win top livestock awards For the Daily Corinthian

The National Weather Service said damage to Bethel Springs was caused by a microburst, not a tornado.


Bethel and Beauty Hill. “The most damage was from Rose Creek up through Bethel Springs,” said Moore. First Baptist Church in Bethel Springs was being used as a relief center for those left homeless due to the storm. The church along with Bethel Springs Church of God also provided meals for workers and those in need Thursday. “The Red Cross and Jesus Cares program put

some people up Wednesday night, and we also have the Selmer Community Center available for those in need of a place,” added Moore. A state of emergency was declared by Gov. Bill Haslam after damaging winds and possible tornadoes hit the state Wednesday. The storm, which hit McNairy County close to 2 a.m., damaged an elementary school, businesses and several homes, destroyed storage buildings and mobile

homes, and downed numerous trees and power lines in Bethel Springs, a town of 1,000 residents just north of the county seat of Selmer. McNairy County schools will be closed for a third straight day as work continues on repairs at Bethel Springs Elementary School. The school suffered close to $50,000 in damage to the roof with central units and gas lines being damaged. Three classrooms also suffered significant water damage.

concludes the first wave of speakers with a speech on High Blood Pressure. “The event is free and open to the public,” said McDonald. “All we are asking them to do is register because seating is limited.” Individuals can register by calling MRHC at 662293-1200 or by going online at Last year, the event drew 450. McDonald expects around 500 for the 10th annual conference. Following a 30-minute intermission, local physician Dr. Fred Corder will resume the speaking portion with a talk about Gas-

tro Intestinal and Chest Pain. Dr. David V. Pizzimenti, D.O., F.A.C.O.I. wraps up the talks with a segment on General Health Maintenance in Women. A complimentary breakfast will be provided along with plenty of door prizes and giveaways. Something new this year will be a fashion show to end the conference. Models for the show will consist of patients with past heart ailments. “The fashion show is our way of putting a new spin on things,” added McDonald.

MSU promotes conservation success MSU Ag Communications

Today is Friday, Feb. 1, the 32nd day of 2013. There are 333 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Feb. 1, 2003, the space shuttle Columbia broke up during re-entry, killing all seven of its crew members.

On this date: In 1790, the U.S. Supreme Court convened for the first time in New York. (However, since only three of the six justices were present, the court recessed until the next day.) In 1861, Texas voted to leave the Union at a Secession Convention in Austin. In 1862, “The Battle Hymn of the Republic,” a poem by Julia Ward Howe, was published in the Atlantic Monthly. In 1922, in one of Hollywood’s most enduring mysteries, movie director William Desmond Taylor was shot to death in his Los Angeles home; the killing has never been solved. In 1942, the Voice of America broadcast its first program to Europe, relaying it through the facilities of the British Broadcasting Corp. in London. In 1943, one of America’s most highly decorated military units, the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, made up almost exclusively of Japanese-Americans, was authorized. In 1946, Norwegian statesman Trygve Lie was chosen to be the first secretary-general of the United Nations.  In 1960, four black college students began a sit-in protest at a Woolworth’s lunch counter in Greensboro, N.C., where they’d been refused service. In 1968, during the Vietnam War, South Vietnam’s police chief (Nguyen Ngoc Loan) executed a Viet Cong officer with a pistol shot to the head. Richard M. Nixon announced his bid for the Republican presidential nomination. In 1979, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini received a tumultuous welcome in Tehran as he ended nearly 15 years of exile. In 1991, 34 people were killed when an arriving USAir jetliner crashed atop a commuter plane on a runway at Los Angeles International Airport. In 1993, Gary Bettman took office as the NHL’s first commissioner.

Ten years ago: At least 50 people were killed in a Zimbabwe train collision. Former Agriculture Secretary Richard Lyng died in Modesto, Calif., at age 84.

Five years ago: Exxon Mobil posted the largest annual profit by a U.S. company — $40.6 billion — and the biggest quarterly profit to that time, breaking its own records. Microsoft announced an unsolicited bid for Yahoo, which later rejected it. Remotecontrolled explosives strapped to two women killed at least 100 people in Baghdad.

STARKVILLE — Ronnie Crawford’s 300-acre pasture and forage operation in Prentiss County is the kind of conservation success a Mississippi State University initiative is trying to encourage across the state. Crawford is part of MSU’s Research and Education to Advance Conservation and Habitat, or REACH, initiative. This effort is spearheaded by Robbie Kroger, assistant professor of aquatic sciences in the MSU Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Aquaculture. REACH is a collaboration of MSU’s Extension Service, the Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, and the Forest and Wildlife Research Center. “Our goal with REACH is to create a network of cooperative farms with different types of agricultural practices that will showcase conservation practices, demonstrate how well they work for agriculture and the environment, and serve as models for sustainable methods,” Kroger said. Kroger said REACH experts share scientifically researched best practices with producers and landowners. Crawford’s land is mostly in pasture, but he has some acreage in forage production and some in the Conservation Reserve Program. He joined the REACH initiative to team up with MSU experts to create the most profitable combination of soil improvement practices and land management for wildlife in his pasture and forage operation. “I’m interested in experimenting with a variety of things, such as applying fertilizer versus no fertilizer and taking soil samples each year to see how the soil is improving,” Crawford said. “I’m looking for ideas from

Ronnie Crawford examines cattle on his 300-acre pasture and forage operation in Prentiss County. The Mississippi State University REACH initiative is trying to encourage similar conservation practices across the state. them on different variables we can inject into what we’ve got on our land.” Crawford has been using soil and water conservation practices on his farm for years and planted a 50-acre pasture in native grasses three years ago. “I had initially gotten interested in native grasses due to wildlife interests, specifically Bobwhite quail,” Crawford said. “It seems that the native grasses served several purposes, among them being wildlife, conservation of the soil, production of a forage crop and something that would improve the quality of the environment.” He said using native grasses as an alternative crop has some applications for cattlemen and forage producers who are interested in environmental issues. John Gruchy, private

lands habitat coordinator with the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks, said the REACH program helps tie together landowners’ interests in soil preservation, wildlife habitat and profitability. “This practice of using native grass forages for hay and grazing is an innovative practice but something we’ve needed for a long time,” Gruchy said. He said landowners in the eastern United States are using a lot of improved grass forages, such as Bermudagrass and fescue, that work really well for livestock but are not ideal for creating wildlife habitat. “We were looking for something that we could use to interject some wildlife habitat in small places on a production livestock operation,” Gruchy said. “This would distribute the habitat

through the farm and the landscape so we can get maximum benefit for wildlife.” Crawford is growing native big blue stem and Indian grass on this REACH acreage. Native grasses such as these are not only great for wildlife, but also profitable to producers because they require fewer inputs, Gruchy said. “Wildlife may be one of the primary reasons landowners are drawn to native grass forages, but what a lot of them are really looking for are ways to decrease inputs,” Gruchy said. “These native grass forages have very low input costs in terms of fertility requirements, and they’re also extremely drought-hardy.” Native grasses provide a financial benefit over some of the nonnative forages frequently grown in the state. Native grass-

es are typically cut twice a year, maybe three times on rare occasions. “You can get comparable production on two cuttings of native grasses than you maybe can on three cuttings of Bermudagrass,” Gruchy said. “It just makes more tonnage per haying operation in addition to improving the wildlife habitat of the area.” To date, nearly 30 farmers are enrolled in REACH, and the program impacts management practices on 96,000 Mississippi acres. “These farmers have a conservation mindset, and they want to be a part of REACH to get access to expertise across the MSU campus and from the many collaborating agencies,” Kroger said. “They get scientifically defensible data from us, and they get to tell the story of what they’re doing on their land.”

State-funded preschool plan gathers support BY JEFF AMY Associated Press

JACKSON — Top Mississippi leaders are endorsing a plan that would have the state government fund voluntary 4-year-old preschool. Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves and House Speaker Philip Gunn held a news conference Wednesday to promote the plan. Gov. Phil Bryant released a statement endorsing it. All three are Republicans. “I think it’s going to make a huge difference long-term in improving the overall educational performance of our citizens,” Reeves said. It’s another in a series of attempts to offer state-funded preschool in Mississippi, which trails most other southern states in offering a program. In 1990, under Gov. Ray Mabus, the Legislature passed a pilot program but never funded it. The idea is that early education will reduce school dropouts and teen pregnancy. Mississippi’s high school dropout rate exceeds the national average, and its teen pregnancy rate is among the nation’s highest. Sen. Brice Wiggins, RPascagoula, said he became interested in pre-

school in part because of his experience as a youth court prosecutor. “I got tired of seeing children going to prison for crimes, and the big thing was their lack of education,” he said. Bills in the House and Senate call for creating local groups including public school districts, Head Start programs and private child care facilities. The groups would apply to the state Department of Education for money to pay for teaching 4-year-olds in schools meeting certain standards. The state would put up half the money, and local groups would raise the rest. The state would spend $8 million the first year, N



serving 3,500 children, under Senate Bill 2395. That would expand in phases by 2016 to $32 million a year, enough to serve 15,000 4-year-olds, or about 30 percent of all children that age in Mississippi, said Rachel Canter, the executive director of Mississippi First. Her group, which advocates for educational changes, proposed last year that Mississippi fund such local consortiums and helped draft the bills. As many as 90 percent of Mississippi 4-year-olds already attend preschools or day care centers. Local groups’ contribution to the funding scheme could come from federal education money that some public school

districts already use to teach prekindergarten classes. Private donors to local groups could get dollar-for-dollar tax breaks off their state income tax, up to $1 million per donor. The total amount of tax credits would be capped at the same amount as state funding each year. For the first time, the state Department of Education would get a leading role in state-run preschool efforts. It would regulate local groups, requiring them to teach a curriculum proven to get children ready for kindergarten. Local groups would employ teachers with at least a bachelor’s degree and assistant teachers with at least an

Bryant had called for the state to fund the Mississippi Building Blocks program, where mentors help teachers improve, as well as directly teach language and literacy skills. On Wednesday, he endorsed Wiggins’ preschool plan but continued his support for Building Blocks. “The Mississippi Building Blocks model, in combination with the Pre-K collaborative model, will provide more opportunities to support school readiness in young children and further my push for literacy improvements,” Bryant said in a statement.

Corinth, Miss.

Obama’s ‘Battle Hymn of the Republic’ I don’t think President Barack Obama gave a good inaugural address this time. I think it was a great one. He began with the principles of freedom and equality that inform our founding document, the Declaration of Independence, and followed our journey through the many struggles we’ve undertaken to make those principles manifest — Seneca Falls, Selma, Stonewall. Obama made glancing refDonald Kaul erence to Abraham Lincoln’s second inaugural address, as Other Words well as Martin Luther King’s speech on the other end of the Mall more than 40 years ago, and echoed John F. Kennedy’s words of resolve. He embraced Franklin D. Roosevelt’s idea of government as an engine of progress and paid homage to the women’s movement and its continuing fight for equal treatment. He sounded determined to do something about climate change, the growing divide between the very rich and the rest of us, reforming our broken immigration system, and reinforcing voting rights. And he tied it together under one phrase: “Preserving our individual freedom ultimately requires collective action.” After three decades of being fed the lie that government isn’t the solution but rather the problem, it was a gust of fresh air to hear a president sound like an unapologetic liberal. That theme was struck immediately when the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir started things off with a rousing rendition of “Battle Hymn of the Republic,” the anthem of the Union forces during the Civil War. I can only imagine how that sounded to the southern Republicans, who have done their best to thwart Obama’s leadership at every turn. It was as if he said: “We not only won the damn election, we won the damn war. It’s about time you got used to it.” Was it a conciliatory speech? Of course not. He tried that once, remember? All he got for it from the Republicans was implacable hostility, unyielding obstructionism, and insults. This speech, elegant in its phrasing and majestic in its arc, planted Obama’s battle flag on the Capitol steps. Up until now, the Republicans haven’t shown much respect for our president. They have made it clear that they think he’s a pushover. They might be having second thoughts. Some have said that this marks the end of the era of Ronald Reagan. God, I hope so. Conservatives have raised Reagan to mythical status, endowing him with virtues he would not have claimed for himself. I was in Washington during the first Reagan inauguration and it was quite a spectacle. Every limousine up and down the East Coast was commandeered for the event. You saw them everywhere, disgorging ladies in fur coats and men in formalwear. I felt as though I were witnessing a coronation in a foreign country. For all his posturing, it was Reagan who sold the Republicans on the idea that it was OK to have a big government, so long as you didn’t pay for it. Since then, they seem to have realized that you can only work that scam for so long, so conservatives now want to cut government, particularly as it pertains to the poor, the young, and the old, all the while maintaining the privileges granted to the rich and powerful. They’re having a tough time selling that formula. That’s what the election was about. We’ll see whether Obama can make good on the implicit promises of his speech or whether the congressional proxies of the oligarchs who own our society can hold him off. The election in 2014 will help answer that question. As for myself, I had a great time hearing Obama’s speech. It made me proud to be an American. I love this country. For all of its flaws and warts and unfulfilled promises, I wouldn’t be a citizen of any other. (Daily Corinthian and OtherWords columnist Donald Kaul lives in Ann Arbor, Mich.

Senate’s 900-pound immigration gorilla BY ROGER SIMON A lot can get done if you don’t care who gets the credit. That’s an old saying. But not one Chuck Schumer has ever heard of. And the White House is not happy about it. Chuck Schumer is a Democratic senator from New York. He is not without honor. He does not stab people in the back. He stabs them in the front. Schumer and seven other senators known as the Gang of Eight have been working on a bipartisan immigration reform bill for some time. But Congress has been diddling around on such a bill for a dozen years without any success. Times have changed, however, and both Democrats and Republicans need to woo Hispanics to win elections. Barack Obama pledged during his last campaign to bring up immigration reform immediately after his inauguration. But the Gang of Eight recently informed the White House that it was still some weeks away from any kind of agreement. So last Friday, the White House announced Obama would go to Las Vegas on Tuesday to talk about immigration and release a set of proposals. Lo and behold, on Sunday Schumer reportedly called

the White House and said the Gang of Eight was pushing ahead with its own statement Monday. This would upstage the president by a full day and establish the Senate and not the White House as taking the lead on immigration reform. Some in the White House were furious, but others saw it as Schumer just being Schumer. “Schumer wants to get a bill and be in the lead; he wants some credit,” a Democratic source familiar with White House thinking told me. And while on Tuesday Obama wryly praised the senators for coming up with proposals “very much in line with principles I proposed and campaigned on for the last two years,” he also threatened them. “If Congress is unable to move forward in a timely fashion,” Obama said, “I will send up a bill based on my proposal and insist that they vote on it right away. But even if the House were to embrace the Senate proposals, there would still be a hitch. “There is a 900-pound gorilla in the Senate plan,” my source warned me. “And it could be a huge problem.” Both the Senate plan and the Obama plan offer a way for the 11 million undocumented workers already in America to earn their citi-

zenship. But in order to get the Republicans on board, the Senate Democrats had to agree to a “commission” to determine if our border with Mexico is “truly secure.” If the commission says it is secure, the pathway to citizenship for the 11 million is open. But if the commission says it is not secure, the pathway may be blocked for years or forever. Some Democrats want to believe the commission, to be made up of “governors, attorneys general, and community leaders living along the Southwest border,” is just an olive branch to conservatives and has no true power. Some Republicans, however, want to believe the commission will have veto power over citizenship until the border is “secure,” though nobody knows what “secure” actually means or even whether such a commission is constitutional. No commission is mentioned in the president’s proposal, and Democratic sources tell me that the White House wants no part of it. The Republicans will push for this, but the Democrats have no real reason to give in. As I wrote in a column in November, the White House views immi-

gration reform as a win-win situation. If it passes, then the White House, Chuck Schumer and the Democratic Party will get most of the credit with Hispanic voters. If it fails, the Republicans will get most of the blame. So either way, the Democrats win. Which has finally occurred to Chuck Schumer. “This will be the year Congress finally gets it done,” Schumer said Monday. “There’s more political risk in opposing immigration reform than supporting it.” On Tuesday, President Obama said that undocumented immigrants are “woven into the fabric of our lives,” but he also said “immigration has always been an issue that enflames passions.’’ “It’s easy sometimes for the discussion to take on a feeling of ‘us’ versus ‘them,’ “ he continued. “And when that happens, a lot of folks forget that most of ‘us’ used to be ‘them.’” There are 11 million people among us who want to be us, and Obama is determined this year that is going to happen. No matter who gets the credit. (Daily Corinthian columnist Roger Simon is chief political columnist of, an award-winning journalist and a New York Times best selling author.)

GOP: R.I.P. or behave like Democrats? Some political commentators are dancing on what they believe to be the grave of the Republican Party, claiming that the only way the GOP can have a viable future is for them to behave like Democrats. Last weekend, National Review magazine sponsored a “conservative summit” in Washington. They should have held it elsewhere. Prior to speaking at that event, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal addressed the Republican National Committee’s annual winter meeting in Charlotte, N.C., where he proposed a strategy for Republicans and conservatives that begins, not in Washington, but at the state level. Jindal said the Republican Party loses when it plays on the liberal Democrats’ turf, allowing them to set the agenda. He maintained Republicans have wasted too much time trying to manage bloated government and too little time growing the private sector. The media and Democrats, he added, treat any serious proposal to restrain government growth as “not serious” when the truth is, “...nothing serious is deemed serious in Washington.”

Then in a face-slapping moment, Jindal added, “If this election taught us anything Cal — it is that Thomas we will not win elections Columnist by simply pointing out the failures of the other side. We must boldly paint the picture of what America can be, of just how incredibly bright America’s future can be.” The real action is occurring away from Washington. Republican governors, a majority of state chief executives, are lowering or eliminating state incomes taxes, cutting wasteful spending, balancing budgets, or creating surpluses, and in the case of Indiana, sending rebate checks to taxpayers. Here are three Jindalisms the public can understand: “Government spending still does not grow our economy. ... American weakness on the world stage still does not lead to peace. ... Higher taxes still do not create prosperity for all.” Poverty should not be the final verdict on any life. Republicans need to have “testimony time” during

which people once addicted to government tell how they broke free and are now earning a paycheck because they embraced conservative principles. Republicans should be seen as friends of the poor instead of friends of the wealthy. Republicans should also partner with churches. Stop arguing about the evils of welfare dependency and start helping people live a life of self-sufficiency. That begins with a change in attitude and a transformation of outlook. What better institution to address these internal qualities than the church? If Republicans want to do something about the future, they should back a growing movement to pull children out of underperforming public schools where often their views, values, understanding of history and even faith are undermined. Home-schooling is an option. The public school system, seemingly a “hot house” for growing new generations of secular liberals, is a failure on many levels. Private school is also an option. Negativity doesn’t inspire. Criticizing Democrats might make the base feel good, but it solves nothing.

Republicans should adopt the optimism and vision of Ronald Reagan, whose main gift to this country was to persuade Americans to believe in themselves. His optimism became our optimism. In the end, “we, the people” must realize they have the power, not Washington. Gov. Jindal stated his vision in Charlotte: “... free individuals, taking risks, building businesses, inventing things from thin air, and passing immutable values from one generation to the next ... that is the root of America’s greatness.” Are party members listening and willing to change, not their principles, but their approach to promoting those principles? We will know soon enough, but predictions of the party’s demise are as premature as they were for Democrats during the Reagan-Bush electoral successes of 1980, ’84 and ’88. Republicans aren’t dead yet, but changes are essential for the GOP to get off life support. They can start by reading Gov. Jindal’s speech.

Congress sends bill averting default WASHINGTON — Congress sent President Barack Obama dramafree legislation on Thursday raising the debt ceiling, averting a government default and putting off the next tax-andspending clash between the White House and Republicans until later in the year. The measure cleared the Senate on a vote of 64-34 after winning House approval late last week. It permits the Treasury to borrow above the current $16.4 trillion debt limit through May 18. The White House has said Obama will sign it. “Failure to pass this bill will set off an unpredictable financial panic that would plunge not only the United States but much of the world back into recession,” Sen. Max Baucus, DMont., said before the vote. “Every single American would feel the economic impact.” But Republican leader Mitch McConnell said in remarks on the Senate floor that “government spending is completely out of control - and it’s projected to get much worse in years to come.” His office issued a statement shortly after the vote saying he had opposed the legislation after Democrats torpedoed several GOP attempts to rein in spending before final passage. The legislation reflects a switch in strategy by Republicans, whose insistence on deep spending cuts as a trade-off for a higher debt limit more than a year ago pushed the government to the brink of an unprecedented default. With polls showing their public support lagging, they now look ahead to a new season of potential showdowns, with a reshuffled batting order that moves the threat of a default to the back of a line that includes March 1 across-the-board spending cuts and the March 27 expiration of funding for most federal agencies. The debt limit measure came with only one string attached by House Republicans, a provision that would temporarily withhold the pay of lawmakers in either house that failed to produce a budget this year. That was designed as a prod to the Senate, where majority Democrats have failed to bring a budget to a vote in any of the past three years. This year, they say they will. Republicans say they are eager for a comparison of plans, rather than a long year spent defending one of their own. Already, the next conflict over budget priorities is taking shape, in an environment includes a fresh report that the economy unexpectedly declined in the last quarter, and the emergence of a warning from the Pentagon’s top uniformed officers that pending defense cuts could lead to a “hollow force.”

Republicans hammer defense nominee Hagel WASHINGTON — Republican senators hammered former GOP Sen. Chuck Hagel at his confirmation hearing Thursday on issues ranging from Israel and Iran to his support for a group that advocates the elimination of nuclear weapons. But with most Dem-

ocrats in his corner, an unflustered Hagel seems headed for approval as defense secretary. Hagel, a former twoterm senator from Nebraska, described his views as mainstream and closely aligned with those of President Barack Obama, the Democrat who nominated him. But several GOP members of the Armed Services Committee sought to portray him as radical and unsteady. Sen. Deb Fischer, RNeb., called his ideas “extreme” and “far to the left” of Obama. Hagel said he believes America “must engage — not retreat — in the world,” and insisted that his record is consistent on that point. He pointed to Iran and its nuclear ambitions as an example of an urgent national security threat that should be addressed first by attempting to establish dialogue with Iranian rulers, although he said he would not rule out using military force. “I think we’re always on higher ground in every way — international law, domestic law, people of the world, people of the region to be with us on this — if we have ... gone through every possibility to resolve this in a responsible, peaceful way, rather than going to war,” he said. He pushed back on the notion — first raised by one of his harshest Republican critics, Sen. James Inhofe of Oklahoma — that he favors a policy of appeasement. “I think engagement is clearly in our interest,” Hagel told Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., who denounced the idea of negotiating with a “terrorist state.” “That’s not negotiation,” Hagel said. “Engagement is not appeasement. Engagement is not surrender.” His fiercest exchange came with Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., a fellow Vietnam veteran, onetime close friend and a vote that could carry considerable sway. Politics and Hagel’s evolving opposition to the Iraq war caused a split between the two men that was on full display. McCain suggested that Hagel and his critics were not quibbling over small matters.

Senate group focuses on border security WASHINGTON — A bipartisan group of senators working to craft immigration legislation is focusing on how to define when the border is secure, one of several contentious issues that could cause the whole deal to collapse, a key Senate negotiator said Thursday. Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., pointed to “serious challenges ahead” as the lawmakers delve into the nitty gritty of border security, how to define a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants, and other issues such as a guest worker program — something business wants and organized labor has concerns about. “Make no mistake about it, these are difficult and thorny issues, and all three of us have seen any one of these issues bring previous immigration bills down,” Schumer said at a news conference with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill. Schumer, Durbin and the other six senators who proposed an immigration bill blueprint this week want assurances on border security before a path to citizenship can begin.

President Barack Obama does not endorse such a linkage in his own immigration proposal, and the White House argues that the border is more secure now than it ever has been. But Republicans in the Senate group, including John McCain of Arizona and Marco Rubio of Florida, say they can’t support an immigration bill that doesn’t make a pathway to citizenship conditional on a secure border. But just how to define a secure border remains to be determined, and the issue is front and center as the Senate group meets to draft legislative language. Schumer and Durbin said they envision specific metrics that would need to be met. They didn’t provide examples, but such measures could include crime statistics, arrests at the border, and the number of border agents deployed along the border. “If we made the path to citizenship contingent on a safe and secure border, and just used that phrase, then it’s in the eye of the beholder. It will always be subjective,” Durbin said. “The idea behind a metric is to have something measurable, measurable, and we believe we can achieve that.” Rubio has said that “operational security” of the 2,000-mile border should be achieved before illegal immigrants can begin to achieve citizenship. He’s defined that as law enforcement having a very high probability of being able to prevent somebody from illegally crossing the border or apprehending them if they do. A Government Accountability Office report in 2011 said that of the nine southwestern border sectors, only the Yuma, Ariz., sector had reported full operational security. Rubio also wants a better system of tracking people here on visas and whether they’ve overstayed their visas. McCain said Thursday that “we have to have control to the level we have on the Yuma sector today, and we can achieve it and it’s doable, so we’ll do it.”

Bill would merge city, county schools JACKSON — Some House members want to merge the Starkville and Oktibbeha County school districts. The House Education Committee on Thursday advanced House Bill 716, which would combine the two districts on July 1, 2015. It goes to the House for more debate. Rep. Toby Barker, a Hattiesburg Republican sponsoring the proposal, says students in the Oktibbeha district, recently taken over by the state for a second time, would be better served by the Starkville district. The bill doesn’t mandate school closings. The Oktibbeha district runs two elementary schools and two high schools. Barker’s bill creates a school board with three members appointed by the city, one elected by voters outside the city but in the current Starkville district, and one member from the current Oktibbeha district appointed by county supervisors.

that 37-year-old Chad E. Cruz has been charged with two counts of residential burglary and one count of grand larceny. Cruz is being held on a $14,000 cash bond. Saucier said the investigation began with two residential burglaries in the past month. He says investigators found similarities in the two burglaries — including the types of items stolen, mostly jewelry, and the method of entry. The investigation in Pearl River County and St. Tammany Parish, La., pawn shops showed the stolen jewelry apparently had been sold by Cruz to a scrap gold business in St. Tammany Parish, Saucier said. Also, an industrial paint sprayer was sold by Cruz to a pawn shop in the neighboring parish, Saucier said. The paint sprayer allegedly had been stolen from one of Cruz’ former employers, Saucier said. The theft of the paint

sprayer led to the grand larceny charge, Saucier said. Saucier said investigators learned Cruz had established friendships with the victims through a local church. He says Cruz allegedly would wait until he knew the victims were attending church on Sundays before breaking into their homes.

Menendez says he reimbursed donor WASHINGTON — Sen. Robert Menendez’s office says he reimbursed a prominent Florida political donor $58,500 on Jan. 4 of this year for the full cost of two of three trips Menendez took on the donor’s plane to the Dominican Republic in 2010. More details about the New Jersey senator’s trips emerged as his office said unsubstantiated allegations that the senator engaged in sex with prostitutes in the Dominican Republic are false. There had been no public disclosure of the two trips until now. “The senator paid for the two trips out of his personal account and no reporting requirements apply,” Menendez spokeswoman Tricia Enright said Wednesday night. The FBI searched the West Palm Beach, Fla., office of the donor — eye doctor Salomon Melgen — on Tuesday night and early Wednesday, but it was unclear if the raid was related to Menendez, a New Jersey Democrat. A third trip by Menendez aboard Melgen’s plane — a campaign fundraising journey to the donor’s residence in the Dominican Republic — took place in May 2010. That trip was reported to the Federal Election Commission as a $5,400 expenditure by the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, which Menendez chaired.

Lawmakers endorse Bryant proposals BY JEFF AMY Associated Press

JACKSON — The House Education Committee endorsed two bills that contain key parts of Republican Gov. Phil Bryant’s education agenda Wednesday. House Bill 906 would create tax credits for people who donate scholarships to students who attend private schools. Though critics have described the measure as a back-door way to create school vouchers, it attracted little Democratic opposition in committee. The other measure, House Bill 890, would take a number of steps, including setting up stronger reading standards for students in kindergarten through third grade, raising requirements to major in education at state universities and setting up a pilot teacher merit-pay program. Lawmakers stripped out provisions that would have allowed students to transfer to other districts or other schools in their home district. “I think this should be a stand-alone issue,” Rep. Brad Mayo, R-Oxford, who steered the bill through committee, said

of the open enrollment plan. The biggest part of House Bill 890, which Bryant has called Education Works, aims to improve reading and math achievement. It would require third-graders to read at a certain standard before moving to fourth grade. To help them get there, the measure calls for intensive reading instruction for children who fall behind in grades K-3. Bryant wants to spend $15 million on reading-intervention trainers. House members amended the bill to say it would take effect only if the money was included in the state budget. The measure would also: ■ Allow seventh-graders to move to eighth grade only if they meet certain standards in reading and math. ■ Require high schools with graduation rates below 80 percent to submit plans to increase graduation rates. ■ Require students to have a 3.0 grade point average and a 21 on the ACT college test to enter college schools of education. ■ Offer education scholarships to students with high grades and

ACT scores to become teachers in Mississippi. ■ Create a pilot program to allow four districts to pay high-performing teachers above the current state salary schedule. Tuesday, the Mississippi Association of School Superintendents endorsed Bryant’s Education Works, saying school leaders “look forward to working with him in implementing a quality reading and math experience for every student we serve.” Outside groups were quick to attack the scholarship program. “It’s fewer resources available for children already in low-performing public schools,” said Sara Welker, an analyst for the Mississippi Economic Policy Center. The measure allows up to $10 million in dollarfor-dollar tax credits for people or companies that donate to a scholarship fund benefiting students whose families have incomes below 250 percent of the federal poverty level and students zoned for D- and F-rated schools. Those students could take the money and attend any private school in the state that met cer-

tain standards. Administration officials estimate $10 million would create close to 2,200 scholarships. The administration says more than 100,000 of Mississippi’s 490,000 public school students would qualify. Welker said 250 percent of poverty, which equals a yearly income of $57,625 for a family of four, is too high of a cap, and the state could end up paying for children whose families would send them to private schools anyway. Administration officials expect a legal challenge if the bill passes. When Mississippi’s constitution was rewritten in 1890, it banned state aid to religious schools. Such bans, aimed at subsidies to Catholic schools, exist today in 38 state charters, according to the U.S. Civil Rights Commission. Such provisions have been a legal obstacle to vouchers, but proponents of public money for private schools have evaded them elsewhere by offering tax credits. Bryant administration officials have said they believe a previous court case allows Mississippi to aid students who attend private schools.

related to a cocaine and money laundering scheme. The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports that court records identify the defendants as Derek “St. Louis” Miller, Yulande Scott, Brakeia Pannell, Jervis G. Moore, Serrell Perkins, Frederick “Ricky” Douglas and Heather Smith, all of Tupelo; and Shonta Grice of West Point; and Demetrius Babbit, no address given. The federal indictment alleges they were involved in a conspiracy to distribute large amounts of powder cocaine and crack cocaine in North Mississippi. The alleged conspiracy began about Feb. 1, 2009 and continued through Aug. 5, 2012, according to court documents. Miller and Smith are accused of instigating the conspiracy. The others are accused of the illegal sale of cocaine.

Cockfighting has been illegal in Mississippi since 1880 but it is classified as a misdemeanor and the maximum fine is $100. “As a result we have a lot of cockfighters who have come here to take advantage of the weak penalties,” said Goodwin. “So basically, Mississippi is attracting crime by having a weak penalty for cockfighting.” Several bills have been filed in 2013 legislative session. One would increase the maximum fine to $500 and another would make cockfighting a felony on the second offense. Mississippi is one of ten states without a felony provision. Sen. Deborah Dawkins, D-Pass Christian, is behind the felony bill and said it’s because current penalties aren’t enough. “People who engage in these activities do not seem to be taking them (penalties) seriously,” said Dawkins. Dawkins would like to see a felony after the first offense but says the change has to move slowly.

him. Evans was convicted in 2009 of murdering his father, Darold Lee Evans, who prosecutors said was fatally shot in his sleep. The teen was sentenced to life in prison. Prosecutors said Evans had moved to Biloxi to live with his father in a FEMA trailer park but decided to kill him because he was too strict. Defense attorneys had sought an “imperfect self-defense” instruction to the jury. Prosecutors said — and the trial judge agreed — that a defense that the teen had an honest but unreasonable belief of danger was properly kept from the jury because there was no evidence to support it. Justice David Anthony Chandler, writing Thursday, said Evans was entitled to an adequate expert to assist his defense. Evans also claimed he suffered from posttraumatic stress disorder brought on by his father’s abuse of him and his mother. Court records showed Evans was hospitalized for depression in 2001 and was diagnosed with PTSD. In oral arguments last fall, Evans’ attorney argued the defense was denied expert testimony about what ongoing abuse would do to a child. That evidence, he said, would have raised a question about the mental condition of the defendant. Prosecutors said the most important fact in this case was that the victim was asleep when he was shot in the head. They said the Supreme Court had never been asked to determine if a sleeping victim could have been posing a threat.


documents, the government contends Marietta Harris, Ladonna Cooper, Tony Jones, Nikki Thomas, Shekeila Jones and S’Ade Tyler stole the inmates’ identities. They allegedly created and filed federal income tax returns and had tax refunds deposited into their bank accounts. Nearly $40,000 was deposited into bank accounts the six allegedly controlled in January 2009, according to court documents. Prosecutors said the refunds were electronically transferred to accounts at four banks. Prosecutors said there were 42 such transactions. There was nothing in court records to indicate that the current or former inmates knew about the scheme. Court documents show a trial date of April 8 has been set for the six defendants in U.S. District Court in Jackson. Records show Cooper was at one time employed at the Central Mississippi Correctional Facility in Rankin County and had access through a computer system to the Social Security numbers, dates of birth of current and former inmates and visitors to the prison. Records show Harris and Thomas are each charged with 24 counts; Shekeila Jones is charged with 22 counts; Cooper and Tony Jones are each charged with one count; and Tyler is charged with eight counts.

Cockfighting felony bills filed JACKSON — Cockfighting is big business because Mississippi has the second weakest cockfighting law in the nation, according to Humane Society of the United States. John Goodwin, HSUS’ director of animal cruelty policy, said Mississippi lawmakers should make the illegal, underground sport a felony. “This cruel blood sport is wide and pervasive in various nooks and crannies around the state ... that attracts people from all over the country, even though it’s a felony to cross state lines for an animal fighting venture,” Goodwin said. Cockfighting is outlawed in all 50 states, with 40 prosecuting the sport as a felony.

A Book Review

Work remains priceless supplement to Hannah’s legacy BY BOBBY J. SMITH

Review of “A Short Ride: Remembering Barry Hannah” Published by Vox Press. Edited by Louis Bourgeois, Adam Young and J.W. Young. Forward by Neil White. 223 pages. Back in 1969, Johnny Cash wrote these words in the liner notes to a Bob Dylan album: “Knowing that to imitate the living is mockery and to imitate the dead is robbery, there are those who are beings complete unto themselves.” The late Mississippiborn writer Barry Hannah was another of those rare beings complete unto themselves – a brilliant and original artist who now occupies a high place in American letters complete unto himself. The new book “A Short Ride: Remembering Barry Hannah” is a collection of essays, interviews and poetry that pays a fine tribute to the greatest literary genius Mississippi has produced since the Nobel-sainted William Faulkner. The main thing about Hannah, they say, was the man’s way with sentences. Wild, crazy, often startling and always humming with an unpredictable energy, they are violently beautiful and still seem as inevitable as any of the best writing. “You never knew the source of the next word,” wrote Richard Ford, another Mississippi native, in one of the new tribute book’s essays. “But he seemed to command the short story form and the novel form and make those forms up newly for himself.” Elsewhere, the late great Harry Crews had this to say: “Curiously enough, I think Barry Hannah has the most

“But I’d say now, having been close or on the deathbed briefly, THAT WE’RE ALL BUSY DYING. Cut the crap, get to work. But not unless you love writing deeply, feel the angst of vacuum without it.” Author Barry Hannah (His reply after a book editor asked him what would be his deathbed advice to young writers.) distinctive voice maybe in the whole damn country. He does things with sentences that I look at them and try to see what the hell he did with them to make them sound so memorable, so uniquely his own. I never can see. So I like his work a lot.” Any devotee of Hannah could fill pages with a selection of their favorite passages. Instead of me filling valuable space with examples you should just pick any Barry Hannah book and start reading. A good place to start is the posthumously published “Long Last Happy,” a kind of greatest hits package of some of Hannah’s best short fiction from across the years. The great writer’s memory is done justice by “A Short Ride.” The book was published by Vox Press, an Oxford-based nonprofit literary organization that takes pride in supporting writers on the cutting edge. For an added local connection, my dear Corinthians, Vox Press was co-founded by J.E. Pitts, a Corinth boy whose creative drive was like a force of nature – in writing, painting and making music – until death came much too early in 2010. Pitts’ name was also listed on the masthead for the award-winning “Oxford American” until the magazine’s ugly and mean-spirited takeover last year. But let’s get back to “A Short Ride.” The essays in this

book show many sides of a complex figure who called Oxford home and taught creative writing to graduate students at Ole Miss for decades. In the forward, Oxford bankerturned-convict-turnedwriter Neil White shares personal stories of Hannah – beginning with the drunken, egomaniacal devil from days gone by, and ending with the sober, charitable angel Hannah became. Artist Glenray Tutor writes of Hannah’s days as an alcoholic hellraiser (including the tale of Hannah’s and Tutor’s quest to resurrect an abandoned boat from a kudzu-choked ravine). Far from a chronicle of bad behavior by a gifted man, the book offers many examples of Hannah’s devotion to his writing students. Essayist and Hannah student J.W. Young tells her story of how a teacher’s kindness gave an insecure grad student the confidence to press on. “A Short Ride” also includes examples of more traditional literary criticism, like Neil Conway’s “Econ 101 With Barry Hannah,” which accomplishes the mission of good criticism by opening up the story “Nicodemus Bluff” to show new meanings and layers for its readers to ponder. The essay “Thrill Me: Barry Hannah in Memorium” by William Giraldi is a brilliant exploration of violence in Hannah’s work framed in a narrative about going on a fish-

ing trip with the author. “Barry, Scandalized” by Humphreys McGee muses on the ways Hannah’s later fiction was shaped by the author’s hospital bed vision of Christ and subsequent embrace of Christianity that followed a near-fatal bout with cancer. The book is also a tale of cities: Tuscaloosa, where Hannah taught during his wilder years, and the author’s beloved Oxford, where he lived and taught and wrote until the end of his life. Tuscaloosa brought out the worst in Hannah. Bad Barry stories abound from that era. It’s pretty well established that he drank heavily while conducting his classes – and he very well may have even waved a loaded handcannon at his students to teach them a little something about fear. He may also have shot a flaming arrow through the window of a college administrator’s house. (Or was it his ex-wife’s window? Or did they both inhabit the targeted dwelling?) Hannah’s Tuscaloosa spree was such that local newspaper writers were still sniping at him in 2007, roughly 30 years after he had quit Alabama for Oxford. Barry in Oxford was a story with a different tone. It was there he found his real home and sense of community, his place in the world. It was in Oxford’s legendary Hoka Theater – now a casualty to Oxford’s gal-

lop toward yuppiedom – where he met the woman who would be his wife until his death. The Oxford essays in “A Short Ride” tell the story of Hannah’s time there, more settled down, but still a wild man on the page, a gentler soul devoted to his craft, his students and helping God’s unfortunates at the local animal shelter. The book is a fine story of a writer, how a brilliant scribbler grappled with his own talent (as well as his demons) and how he influenced the lives and art of his writing students. This book will be of most value to anybody who wants to write. It’s as striking a picture as any of what that life entails, what it means to be a writer. It’s also one of those rare books that are genuinely inspiring. Reading it gave me a bit of the old rush that came with starting down a writer’s path. A couple of my favorite passages in the book come from an interview with Hannah conducted by Louis Bourgeois, the cofounder of Vox Press and one of the book’s three editors. It’s Hannah’s reply after Bourgeois asks him what would be his deathbed advice to young writers. “Please,” replied Hannah. “But I’d say now, having been close or on the deathbed briefly, THAT WE’RE ALL BUSY DYING. Cut the crap, get to work. But not unless you love writing deeply, feel the angst of vacuum without it.” Strong medicine – but I love it. My other favorite from the interview is just flatout inspiring. Right after reading it, I copied the passage and tacked it up over my typewriter. Bourgeois asks Han-

nah what he thinks the future holds for fiction writing and about the future of literature “in this age of advanced technology.” Hannah’s reply has the wild music and unexpected syntax of his most characteristic writing – and is an aptly tilted beacon of hope for those of us who live by and for the written word in an age when the rest of the world wants to zoom off in any other direction and could care less. “Remains the same weight and crypto magic of a gem,” Hannah begins. “The line of black and white, performed naturally and with great acumen is a joy, silent, that launches into space the techno’s celebrants can’t match. It is the soul, the prayer that might even have souls.” While “A Short Ride” speaks most clearly to writers and those who knew Hannah, it’s really a book for anyone who cares about good writing or is interested in a singular writer or the writing life in general. For Mississippians, it is a many-angled portrait of a gifted native son who left a permanent mark on American literature. Barry Hannah didn’t need “A Short Ride” to prop up his legacy, but the book is a priceless supplement to a body of work that will be read and marveled at as long as the world has readers.

They’re back: Struggling chain J.C. Penney bringing back sales BY ANNE D’INNOCENZIO Associated Press

NEW YORK — J.C. Penney is bringing back sales. The struggling department store chain this week will begin adding back some of the hundreds of sales it ditched last year in hopes of luring shoppers who were turned off when the discounts disappeared, CEO Ron Johnson told The Associated Press. Penney also plans to add price tags or signs for more than half of its merchandise to show customers how much they’re saving by shopping at the chain — a strategy used by a few other retailers. For store-branded items such as Arizona, Penney will show comparison prices from competitors. The reversal comes on the eve of the one-year anniversary of its original vow to almost completely get rid of the sales that Americans covet but that cut into a store’s profits. The idea was to offer everyday low prices that customers could count on rather than the nearly 600 fleeting discounts, coupons and sales it once offered. The bold plan has been closely watched by others in the retail industry, which commonly offers deep discounts to draw shoppers. But so far the experiment has served as a cautionary tale of how difficult it is to change shoppers’ habits: Penney next month is expected to report its fourth consecutive quarter of big sales drops and net losses. After losing more than half of its value, Penney’s stock is trading at about $19. And the company’s credit ratings are in junk status.

Johnson, who rolled out the pricing plan shortly after taking the top job in November 2011, told The Associated Press the latest moves are not a “deviation” from his strategy but rather an “evolution.” “Our sales have gone backward a little more than we expected, but that doesn’t change the vision or the strategy,” said Johnson, who previously masterminded Apple Inc.’s retail stores and Target Corp.’s cheap chic fashion strategy. “We made changes and we learned an incredible amount. That is what’s informing our tactics as we go forward.” But critics say Johnson is backpedaling. Walter Loeb, a New York-based

retail consultant, said Johnson “is now realizing that he has to be more promotional to attract shoppers.” The pricing strategy has been a key part of Johnson’s plan to reinvent Penney, which had failed to change with the times as its competitors updated their stores to make them cool places to shop. The plan includes adding hip new brands such as Joe Fresh and replacing racks of clothing with small shops-within-stores by 2015. But this isn’t the first time the pricing strategy has been tweaked. When it was rolled out in February 2012, the plan entailed permanently slashing prices on everything in the store by

40 percent. Penney decided to have just 12 monthlong sales events on some merchandise. And there would be periodic clearance events throughout the year. But the new pricing plan wasn’t well received on Wall Street or Main Street, so six months after launching it, Johnson ditched the monthlong sales, saying that they were too confusing to shoppers. Johnson said Penney has learned that people don’t shop on a monthly basis, but rather they buy when they need something for say, backto-school or during the winter holidays. And during those times, he said, they’re looking for even more value.

“I still believe that the customer knows the right price, but they want help,” he said. Penney declined to say how many sales events it will offer going forward, citing competitive reasons. But the company said the figure will still be well below the nearly 600 it used to offer. The company said the discounts will vary depending on the sale. From Feb. 1 through Feb. 14, for instance, shoppers will get 20 percent off some jewelry for Valentine’s Day. One example: half-carat diamond heart pendants on sale for $96, below Penny’s everyday price of $120. Penney said the decision to add tags or signs on much of its merchan-

dise that shows the “manufacturer’s suggested retail price” alongside Penney’s “everyday” price was a result of his realization that shoppers want a reference price to consider. National brands were also asking Penney to show the suggested price to shoppers, he said. Penney began showing the suggested manufacturer’s price on Izod men’s merchandise last fall and was encouraged by the response. Burt Flickinger, a retail consultant, said the move could help Penney because manufacturers’ suggested retail prices can be as much as 40 percent higher than what retailers wind up charging.

Overseas premium Chevron is expected to post higher net income for the fourth quarter on increased production of oil and gas. The bulk of Chevron’s production is oil sold abroad, where prices have remained high. Meanwhile, its competitors have been earning less selling oil and natural gas priced in the U.S., where natural gas prices have stayed low as newfound reserves have led to plentiful supplies.

Breakup bruises romantic’s heart DEAR ABBY: A great man once said, “A life without love is no life at all.” So many people find love in so many ways, either through arranged marriages or at social events, school or college. I have always been a hopeless romantic, but since the end of my eight-year relationship, my heart no longer feels the same. I feel as though love will never find me. I know people say when it happens you will know, but my question is: How do you really know? And when that time does ever come, how do you prepare your heart for love after a tragic loss? — TRYING TO GO ON DEAR TRYING: I’m sorry for your loss and heartache. But unless your lover was wrenched from you by death, you should do what people of both sexes must when a romance ends — ask yourself why and what you have learned from it. The failure of a romance doesn’t mean that love will never happen again. You will know you have found love when you meet someone who makes you feel strong instead of dependent, who appreciates you for the person you are and isn’t threatened by your successes, who supports you when you’re down, takes pride in your accomplishments, and will hug you even after a difficult day. And it shouldn’t

take “preparation,” just a willingness to risk putting yourself out there and a little good luck. D E A R Abigail My Van Buren ABBY: husband and I live more Dear Abby than 1,000 miles away from our family. When our relatives fly out to visit us, should we feel obligated to let them use one of our cars to travel/tour while they are here? (Money is not an issue.) In most cases, they may be on the other side of the state for several days, leaving my husband and me to share a car. It is an inconvenience because my husband and I leave for work at different times. Will insurance cover our car if they have an accident in it? When we visit them, we drive their car within city limits only, and when it’s convenient for them. Please reply ASAP because they’re coming here soon. — STRESSED OUT IN COLORADO DEAR STRESSED OUT: Because money is not an issue, I assume that your relatives can afford to rent a car during their visit. The same rules should apply to them that apply to you in a

similar situation. Your car should be for your own convenience, since you and your husband need transportation to work. As to the insurance liability should someone have an accident while driving your vehicle, the person to ask is your insurance broker. DEAR ABBY: I have a dear friend who recently remarried. He has always said that what he and his late wife worked for should go to their children. However, I have just learned that his prenup wasn’t signed until after their marriage. Also, it was drawn up by an accountant, not a lawyer. I always thought that a prenup was an agreement to specific conditions before a marriage. Am I right, and is a prenup valid if it is signed after the wedding? — CURIOUS IN KANSAS CITY DEAR CURIOUS: A document like the one you have described is called a postnuptial agreement. It should have been drafted by your friend’s attorney, then reviewed by an attorney representing the wife to be sure she fully understood what she was signing. (Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.)

Horoscopes BY HOLIDAY MATHIS There is something innately disturbing about water that’s on fire. After all, what could cause such a thing? Pollution, natural disaster, war...? Almost nothing it could signify means good news. Perhaps that’s why the water sign of Pisces is considered a difficult placement for fiery Mars. But stay tuned for the distinct bright side of this transit! ARIES (March 21-April 19). As your guiding planet slips into a water sign, you may feel as though the ideas you spark are being quickly extinguished. That’s why you need to surround yourself with similarly bright and hopeful creative people. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Is consistency too much to ask from people? You’re so rock solid when it comes to keeping your commitments that you can’t wrap your head around the flakey way some people live. Just know that they have their reasons. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your popularity secret is simple: You’re usually looking for ways to add value to what others are doing. And you take just enough to let others know that you’re

participating in appreciation. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re usually most comfortable in your own space. So when you feel very much yourself in a place outside your home, it will get the wheels of your mind turning. Can you bring elements of this place into your abode? LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There’s no such thing as too much loveliness, and you’ll quest to fill your senses with the beauty you know is out there. But where is it? You’ll have to branch out to find it. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). As you traverse new territory, you’ll be wise to bring a machete. Whacking through weeds and brush will be hard work, but only once. Next time your way will be clear. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The moon in your highly aesthetic sign gives a silver glow to all you do. Don’t be surprised if people want to take your picture, scribble notes when they talk to you or document your presence in other ways. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Sometimes it feels as though if you don’t get the privacy you need, you’ll go bonkers. The hu-

man animal can be as territorial as a bear, and it’s only natural to fight for your space. Just try not to eat anyone. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Tom Jones insisted, “It’s not unusual to be loved by anyone...” And yet, if your nearest and dearest enjoys amorous attention that’s not coming from you, it’s also not unusual to become seriously annoyed. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It’s not like you to unthinkingly jump into speech, but an unusual environment can inspire you to make that leap. Likely, it will feel as though there’s no time to sort things out; you just have to act. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your life’s work doesn’t culminate in a day. The projects you’ll be known for will happen over the course of months or years. So forget about the long term, and settle into what you must accomplish today. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Someone likes the way you laugh at jokes, forward conversations in interesting directions and add to collaborations in unpredictable ways. Do you know who your fan is?

Corinth plays host for 4A boys BY H. LEE SMITH II

The Corinth Warriors will play host to sixth North Half Basketball Tournament .. provided they qualify. Following the submission of bids and voting by the Mississippi Activities Association, Corinth has the first shot at hosting the eight-team, three-day event that begins on Feb. 21. The only catch is the Warriors have to win the Tuesday night qualifier, which is played at the home site of the higher seed. Finishing among the top two in Division 1-4A earned CHS a bye in that tournament and an automatic berth in the

Tuesday put-out contest. MHSAA officials used to lock in North Half sites, but changed the format after the 1991-92 season when schools whose teams weren’t playing in the later rounds weren’t as good a host for the other teams. Shannon, Houston and New Albany -- in that order -- are next in line should Corinth fall in the Tuesday play-in game. Shannon hosted the event last year and was eliminated in the semifinals by eventual state champion Amanda Elzy. Other top sites for the North Half Boys’ Tournaments are Ingomar (1A), Baldwyn (2A),

Mooreville (3A), Provine (5A) and Madison Central (6A). Biggersville (1A) and Booneville (3A) have the third shot at hosting their tournaments. Some of the reasoning is both hosted the event last years. The first shot on the girls tournaments are H.W. Byers (1A), New Site (2A), Ripley (3A), New Albany (4A), Center Hill (5A) and Horn Lake (6A). Corinth has thrived in host the North Half Tournaments, reaching the state event the other four times. The Warriors claimed the North title as a host team in 1992-1993, 2001-2002 and 2008-09.

The Warriors gained the host roll just prior to the 2001-2002 tournament after all the teams on the list were eliminated by the time the weekend tournament arrived. The Warriors finished third in 1999-2000, but beat the team (Hollandale-Simmons) that dropped them in the semifinal contest. Corinth finished second in the 2010-2011 event, falling to rival Booneville on a last second shot. The Warriors won the event last season at Shannon, marking Corinth’s first title not won in the friendly confines since a host team was involved in the process.

Shorts Tennis Camp Tupelo Park and Recreation and the Tupelo Tennis Association will host a 2013 Spring Camp at Rob Leake City Park from March 18-April 22.

UT women stay perfect vs. MSU The Associated Press

KNOXVILLE, Tenn.— Mississippi State has struggled away from home all season, so the last thing the Bulldogs needed was a trip to No. 9 Tennessee. The Bulldogs trailed the entire way Thursday night and fell 88-45 to Tennessee to remain winless away from Humphrey Coliseum. Mississippi State (9-12, 1-7 SEC) is 0-5 in true road games and 0-3 at neutral sites. “We have a very young, very immature team, and we play a lot better at home than we do on the road,” Mississippi State coach Vic Schaefer said. “That’s been the case all year long. Our energy level seems to be a little bit less on the road than it does at home.” Mississippi State’s last two games tell the story in that regard. Kendra Grant and Katia May teamed up to shoot 14 of 25 and score 35 points Sunday at home as Mississippi State snapped a six-game losing streak with a 72-57 victory over Mississippi. Grant and May combined to shoot 6 of 32 and score 15 points against Tennessee, which has never lost to Mississippi State in 34 attempts. Mississippi State needs Grant and sophomore center Martha Alwal at the top of their games to have a chance against quality SEC teams. Alwal did her part Thursday by scoring 16 points and grabbing nine rebounds. Grant, who entered the night averaging a team-high 12.6 points per game, had 10 points and shot 4 of 19. “For Kendra, we really need her to be our scorer and be that go-to player for us, but everyone’s going to have an off night,” Alwal said. “When she has an off night, we’re going to need someone else to step up. It can’t be just me and Kendra all the time. Someone’s going to have to step up for us, and as soon as we have more people step up, then (opponents) can worry about Please see UT | 13

Biggersville Coach Eric Little talks to his team during a game against Wheeler. The Lions remain undefeated in Division 1-1A and wrapped up the regular season division title with a 109-72 win over Jumpertown on Thursday.

Lions keep streak alive over Jumpertown BY DONICA PHIFER 

JUMPERTOWN — The Biggersville Lions rode their winning streak into Jumpertown, defeating the Cardinals in both matches of the Thursday night double-header. The Lady Lions edged out the Lady Cardinals in a 65-60 game, while the boys rolled over Jumpertown in a 109-72 defeat. Both wins place Biggersville in prime position for the division 1-1A tournament on February 11 with the Lady Lions sitting in third place with a 7-3 district record. The Lions continued their undefeated run in 1-1A, improving to 10-0. With the de-

feat of the Caridinals, Biggersville wraps up their campaign for first place with two more division games scheduled against the Falkner Eagles and another match against Jumpertown. Tyler Shelley wrapped up her night with 28 points for the Lady Lions, as teammate Jade Tubbs earned 24. The Lady Lions began with their strongest first quarter showing for the season, scoring 19 points in the opening minutes and leading the Cardinals into the half. The women capped off their win with a 20-point run in the fourth quarter. Six Lions earned double digits in the second game,

with Slater Huggins leading with 20 points - a first for the junior. Daniel Simmons followed Huggins with 17, Jaylon Gaines at 16 and Emmanuel Simmons for 12. Tyran Davis and Darian Barnett rounded out the sextet with 11 points each. The team racked up 60 of their 109 points in the first half, owning a 31-point lead during the break. The win marks the second game in which Biggersville has passed the 100-point mark, with the first a 101-81 defeat of the New Albany Bulldogs during the final game of the Biggersville Christmas Classic Tournament.

The Lions will hit the court again tonight at 6 p.m. when they host Falkner in the penultimate Division 1-1A contest of regular season play.

Wednesday SEC: A&M tops MSU in OT The Associated Press

STARKVILLE — Elston Turner’s first half consisted of zero points, four turnovers and a whole lot of frustration. But Texas A&M’s leading scorer was able to turn it around after the break, helping the Aggies end a frustrating four-game losing streak. Fabyon Harris scored 17 points, Turner added all 11 of his points after halftime and Texas A&M rallied past Mississippi State for a 55-49 overtime win on Wednesday

night. “I was frustrated,” Turner said. “I had missed a few shots. But I couldn’t let my team down, so I challenged myself to pick it up.” Turner hit a fadeaway jumper with 30 seconds left that gave Texas A&M (13-7, 3-4 Southeastern Conference) an insurmountable 53-49 lead. The 6-foot-5, 209-pound senior turned to the bench and pumped his fist after the crucial bucket, and the Aggies got their first

road win since a stunning 8371 victory over Kentucky on Jan. 12. Turner had his marquee moment in that game, scoring 40 points at famed Rupp Arena. This performance wasn’t as pretty, but it might have been nearly as important. Texas A&M rallied from a 3117 deficit early in the second half and moved back into the middle of the SEC pack as the halfway mark in conference play approaches. “It was an ugly game,” Tex-

as A&M coach Billy Kennedy said. “But I was proud of the way our guys fought back. I thought our small lineup really sped up the game in the second half.” Harris made 8 of 13 shots from the field. J’Mychal Reese scored 10 points, including four in overtime. Mississippi State’s Craig Sword banked in a 3-pointer with 5.9 seconds left to tie the game at 47 and send it Please see MSU | 13

Winter X Games snowmobiler dies from injuries The Associated Press

DENVER — Caleb Moore was a Texas kid drawn to the snow, rehearsing complicated tricks on a snowmobile into a foam pit back home until they became second nature and ready for the mountains. With his younger brother following along and constantly pushing him, Moore became a rising talent in action sports.

The innovative freestyle snowmobile rider, who was hurt in a crash at the Winter X Games in Colorado, died Thursday morning. He was 25. Moore had been undergoing care at a hospital in Grand Junction since the Jan. 24 crash. Family spokeswoman Chelsea Lawson confirmed his death, the first in the 18year history of the X Games.

“He lived his life to the fullest. He was an inspiration,” Lawson said. A former all-terrain vehicle racer, Moore switched over to snowmobiles as a teenager and quickly rose to the top of the sport. He won four Winter X Games medals, including a bronze last season when his younger brother, Colten, captured gold. Caleb Moore was attempt-

ing a backflip in the freestyle event in Aspen last week when the skis on his 450-pound snowmobile caught the lip of the landing area, sending him flying over the handlebars. Moore landed face first into the snow with his snowmobile rolling over him. Moore stayed down for quite some time, before walkPlease see MOORE | 13

into overtime. Gavin Ware led the Bulldogs (7-12, 2-5) with 14 points while Colin Borchert added 10. The Bulldogs have lost five straight. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were two things in the game that absolutely killed us,â&#x20AC;? Mississippi State coach Rick Ray said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One is the turnovers. Not just the turnovers, but the turnovers out (in the backcourt) where the other team just goes and lays it in. I told our guys that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no defense for that. â&#x20AC;? Texas A&M started the SEC schedule with impressive backto-back wins over Arkansas and Kentucky, but since then the offense has disappeared. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much better against the Bulldogs, but some big shots by Reese and Turner in overtime were enough to give the Aggies the win. Ray has preached a deliberate approach during his first season â&#x20AC;&#x201D; especially because the roster has just seven healthy scholarship players â&#x20AC;&#x201D; so the Bulldogsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 29-17 halftime advantage was nearly perfection. Mississippi State was very efficient on offense, making 10 of 15 (66.7 percent) shots from the field, including 4 of 7 from 3-point range, and the defense forced 13 Texas A&M turnovers. But the Bulldogs had trouble taking care of the ball in the second half with 14 turnovers. Texas A&M turned many of those into easy buckets and owned a 14-0 advantage in fast-break points. The Bulldogs pushed their lead to 31-17 early in the second half but Texas A&M then started a methodical comeback, which resulted in a 16-2 run that tied the game at 33 with 13:30 remaining. The teams traded blows until Texas A&M was finally able to create some separation when Turner hit back-to-back baskets to push the Aggies ahead 45-42 with 3:54 remaining. But Mississippi State had one more run remaining and Swordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stunning 3-pointer off the glass tied it at 47. Borchertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jumper pushed the Bulldogs ahead 4947 at the start of overtime, but they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t score another point.

The family later said that Moore, of Krum, Texas, also had a complication involving his brain. Colten Moore was injured in a separate crash that same night. He suffered a separated pelvis in the spill. The family said in a statement they were grateful for all the prayers and support they have received from people around the world.

Negotiators talking Do penalties for smokers make sense? to captor through pipe “If I’m obese, the health care costs are not totally BY MIKE STOBBE Associated Press

BY PHILLIP RAWLS Associated Press

MIDLAND CITY, Ala. — Speaking into a 4-inch-wide ventilation pipe, hostage negotiators tried Thursday to talk a man into releasing a kindergartener and ending a standoff in an underground bunker that stretched into its third day. The man identified by multiple neighbors and witnesses as 65-yearold retired truck driver Jimmy Lee Dykes was accused of pulling the boy from a school bus on Tuesday and killing the driver. The pair was holed up in a small room on his property that authorities compared to tornado shelters common in the area. James Arrington, police chief of the neighboring town of Pinckard, said the shelter was about 4 feet underground, with about 6-by-8 feet of floor space and a PVC pipe that negotiators were speaking through. There were signs that the standoff could continue for some time: A state legislator said the shelter has electricity, food and TV. The police chief said the captor has been sleeping and told negotiators that he has spent long periods in the shelter before. “He will have to give up sooner or later because (authorities) are not leaving,” Arrington said. “It’s pretty small, but he’s been known to stay in there eight days.” Midland City Mayor Virgil Skipper said he has been briefed by law enforcement and visited with the boy’s parents. “He’s crying for his parents,” he said. “They are holding up good. They are praying and asking all of us to pray with them.” Republican Rep. Steve Clouse, who represents the Midland City area, said he visited the boy’s mother Thursday and that she is “hanging on by a thread.” “Everybody is praying with her for the boy,” he said. Clouse said the mother told him that the boy has Asperger’s syndrome, an autism-like disorder, as well as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD. Police have been delivering medication to him through the pipe, he said. The normally quiet red clay road leading to the bunker was teeming Thursday with more than a dozen police cars and trucks, a fire truck, a helicopter, officers from

multiple agencies, news media and at least one ambulance near Midland City, population 2,300. As night fell and temperatures dipped into the low 40s, police and other emergency workers wore heavy coats outside a small church being used as a command post. Neighbors said Dykes had a small heater in the bunker. Overhead, a small aircraft with blinking lights flew wide circles high above the man’s property. An ambulance remained parked on the side of the dirt road leading to Dykes’ home. Dykes was known around the neighborhood as a menacing figure who neighbors said once beat a dog to death with a lead pipe, threatened to shoot children for setting foot on his property and patrolled his yard at night with a flashlight and a firearm. The chief confirmed that Dykes held antigovernment views, as described by multiple neighbors: “He’s against the government — starting with Obama on down.” “He doesn’t like law enforcement or the government telling him what to do,” he said. “He’s just a loner.” Authorities say the gunman boarded a stopped school bus Tuesday afternoon and demanded two boys between 6 and 8 years old. When the driver tried to block his way, the gunman shot him several times and took a 5-yearold boy off the bus. The bus driver, Charles Albert Poland Jr., 66, was hailed by locals as a hero who gave his life to protect the 21 students aboard the bus. No motive has been discussed by investigators, but the police chief said the FBI had evidence suggesting it could be considered a hate crime. Federal authorities have not released any details about the standoff or the investigation. The mayor said he hasn’t seen anything tying together Dykes’ anti-government views and the allegations against him. Dykes had been scheduled to appear in court Wednesday to answer charges he shot at his neighbors in a dispute last month over a speed bump. Neighbor Claudia Davis said he yelled and fired shots at her, her son and her baby grandson over damage Dykes claimed their pickup truck did to a makeshift speed bump in the dirt road. No one was hurt.

NEW YORK — Faced with the high cost of caring for smokers and overeaters, experts say society must grapple with a blunt question: Instead of trying to penalize them and change their ways, why not just let these health sinners die? Annual health care costs are roughly $96 billion for smokers and $147 billion for the obese, the government says. These costs accompany sometimes heroic attempts to prolong lives, including surgery, chemotherapy and other measures. But despite these rescue attempts, smokers tend to die 10 years earlier on average, and the obese die five to 12 years prematurely, according to various researchers’ estimates. And attempts to curb smoking and unhealthy eating frequently lead to backlash: Witness the current legal tussle over New York City’s first-ofits-kind limits on the size of sugary beverages and the vicious fight last year in California over a ballot proposal to add a $1-perpack cigarette tax, which was ultimately defeated. “This is my life. I should be able to do what I want,” said Sebastian Lopez, a college student from Queens, speaking last September when the New York City Board of Health approved the soda size rules. Critics also contend that tobacco- and calorie-control measures place a disproportionately heavy burden on poor people. That’s because they: ■ Smoke more than the rich, and have higher obesity rates. ■ Have less money so sales taxes hit them harder. One study last year found poor, nicotine-dependent smokers in New York — a state with very high cigarette taxes — spent as much as a quarter of their entire income on smokes. ■ Are less likely to have a car to shop elsewhere if the corner bodega or convenience store stops stocking their vices. Critics call these approaches unfair, and believe they have only a marginal effect. “Ultimately these things are weak tea,” said Dr. Scott Gottlieb, a physician and fellow at the rightof-center think tank, the American Enterprise Institute. Gottlieb’s view is debatable. There are plenty of public health researchers that can show smoking control mea-

borne by me. They’re borne by other people in my health insurance plan and — when I’m older — by Medicare.” John Cawley Health economist, Cornell University

sures have brought down smoking rates and who will argue that smoking taxes are not regressive so long as money is earmarked for programs that help poor people quit smoking. And debate they will. There always seems to be a fight whenever this kind of public health legislation comes up. And it’s a fight that can go in all sorts of directions. For example, some studies even suggest that because smokers and obese people die sooner, they may actually cost society less than healthy people who live much longer and develop chronic conditions like Alzheimer’s disease. So let’s return to the original question: Why provoke a backlash? If 1 in 5 U.S. adults smoke, and 1 in 3 are obese, why not just get off their backs and let them go on with their (probably shortened) lives? Because it’s not just about them, say some health economists, bioethicists and public health researchers. “Your freedom is likely to be someone else’s harm,” said Daniel Callahan, senior research scholar at a bioethics think-tank, the Hastings Center. Smoking has the most obvious impact. Studies have increasingly shown harm to nonsmokers who are unlucky enough to work or live around heavy smokers. And several studies have shown heart attacks and asthma attack rates

fell in counties or cities that adopted big smoking bans. “When you ban smoking in public places, you’re protecting everyone’s health, including and especially the nonsmoker,” said S. Jay Olshansky, a professor at the University of IllinoisChicago’s School of Public Health. It can be harder to make the same argument about soda-size restrictions or other legislative attempts to discourage excessive calorie consumption, Olshansky added. “When you eat yourself to death, you’re pretty much just harming yourself,” he said. But that viewpoint doesn’t factor in the burden to everyone else of paying for the diabetes care, heart surgeries and other medical expenses incurred by obese people, noted John Cawley, a health economist at Cornell University. “If I’m obese, the health care costs are not totally borne by me. They’re borne by other people in my health insurance plan and — when I’m older — by Medicare,” Cawley said. From an economist’s perspective, there would be less reason to grouse about unhealthy behaviors by smokers, obese people, motorcycle riders who eschew helmets and other health sinners if they agreed to pay the financial price for their choices. That’s the rationale for a provision in the Afford-

able Care Act — “Obamacare” to its detractors — that starting next year allows health insurers to charge smokers buying individual policies up to 50 percent higher premiums. A 60-yearold could wind up paying nearly $5,100 on top of premiums. The new law doesn’t allow insurers to charge more for people who are overweight, however. It’s tricky to play the insurance game with overweight people, because science is still sorting things out. While obesity is clearly linked with serious health problems and early death, the evidence is not as clear about people who are just overweight. That said, public health officials shouldn’t shy away from tough anti-obesity efforts, said Callahan, the bioethicist. Callahan caused a public stir this week with a paper that called for a more aggressive public health campaign that tries to shame and stigmatize overeaters the way past public health campaigns have shamed and stigmatized smokers. National obesity rates are essentially static, and public health campaigns that gently try to educate people about the benefits of exercise and healthy eating just aren’t working, Callahan argued. We need to get obese people to change their behavior. If they are angry or hurt by it, so be it, he said. “Emotions are what really count in this world,” he said.

Although there are sev- Mama’s expressionless eral types of dementia, face haunted me because each one tends to rob I didn’t know what was

going on behind it. To make myself feel better, I finally decided that my mother’s ability to communicate with me was gone, but maybe — just maybe — she really did know who I was and really did know what was going on but just couldn’t express that to me. I decided her spirit had found peace with God’s spirit and that’s how she held on as long as she did. In fact, one day she told me the Lord was sitting in a chair near hers. When I read Julie Orr’s book, I felt I had hit pay dirt. Ms. Orr talks about many of the times she has spent with hospice patients who have lost their verbal communication skills. She touches on how one’s spirit is connected to the Spirit of God and that scriptures remind us several times that He is often not found in the earthquake or the fire, but only in the still small voice down deep in our hearts. That’s where He does His work so maybe those with dementia still have that deep relationship with God — much more perfect than when they were consumed with everyday

trials and responsibilities in the human realm. Julie asks the question: If the body and mind get Alzheimer’s, what happens to the spirit? Then she answers by saying she believes the mind can fail, the heart can grow weary, and the body can die, but the love and the spirit of that person stays strong forever. She says that, as most of us know, when a dementia patient forgets her own name, she still knows who God is and relies on Him. And since His other name is Love, He will never leave or turn away from His child. Julie suggests that at the end of our lives, when we may be wrapped in a cocoon of silence and forgetfulness, maybe our spirit is walking with God in the cool of the day like Adam and Eve before the fall and we are being slowly changed into that beautiful thing that will emerge like a beautiful butterfly at our “home going.” Then our caressed spirit will be forever free, perfect, and pure. When our spirit has walked with God through the dark days and has become too big for our tired bodies, then the cocoon

bursts open and our spirit stretches forth wings and takes flight to forever be in the garden of the Lord. Julie gives hope for the sufferer — whether patient or caregiver — that a God who is powerful enough to create the universe and loves enough to send His Son to live among us and redeem us, will not allow any ailment or disease to say how our story ends. He is too perfect to give the enemy that pleasure. The enemy may bring the body down, but he has no power over the spirit; only God has the say-so there. … And He says He is preparing a place for us where He is. In that place there is no dementia, no cancer, no ugliness of any kind. “Don’t forget, I love you” are words we need to hear over and over and remember throughout all our struggles in life. A better day will come where there is perfect love, peace and joy, and we will no longer say we don’t understand. (Daily Corinthian columnist Lora Ann Huff is a Wenasoga resident.

Bills authored by local legislators concerning Mississippi student religious liberties have been filed in the Senate and House of Representatives. The “Mississippi Student Religious Liberties Act of 2013” was introduced by 17 senators and referred last week to the State Senate Education

Committee. Senate Bill 2633 is designed “to provide for voluntary student expression of religious viewpoints in public schools; to provide that public school districts shall allow religious expression in class assignments; to provide that public school districts shall provide students with the freedom to organize religious groups and

activities; to provide that public school districts shall provide a limited public forum for student speakers at non-graduation and graduation events; (and) to provide a model policy for voluntary religious expression in public schools.” Sen. Chris McDaniel, R-Ellisville, was the principal author. Sen. Melanie Sojourner, RNatchez, was among co-

authors. All but one of the Senators are Republican. On Jan. 24, the Pike County Board of Supervisors adopted a resolution supporting the bill and voted to send a letter to all county boards of supervisors in the state asking them to do the same. And on Jan. 25, District 97 Rep. Sam Mims V, RMcComb, introduced the similarly named House Bill 721, co-authored by

Rep. Bill Pigott, R-Tylertown. The bill has been referred to the House Education Committee. If passed, the legislation would take effect July 13. The House bill contains language similar to the Senate bill. The full text of both bills is available on the Mississippi Legislature’s web site, www.

Who do you see in the mirror? When you wake up each morning and thank God for another day, who do you see when looking into the mirror? It’s sad, but so true, that when we begin our mornings with an attitude about the day, it will very much turn out to be the way expectGary you ed. Should Andrews you think Devotionals the day is going to be great and you are not going to let the little things annoy you, then it most likely will be a good day. If your grumpy self looks and sees a person that has to face the world with all of its problems, then it is going to be a hard day to overcome. Attitude is so important and it will definitely affect your surroundings. Gene Brown once said, “The bridges you cross before you come to them are over rivers that aren’t there.” What a great quote! If we would all overcome our fear of the world and the worry of what time will bring us we would be much better off. Worry never accomplished anything; it only hurts you. When we look in the mirror are we seeing someone that is going to have a positive influence on those around us? Are we seeing someone that will stand up for God and Godly principles? So many of us say we will however we allow the world to beat us down and let Satan control our thinking. It is so easy in this day and time to be mislead by worldly actions in situations where we do not belong. Look at our country today. We are being led down a path of destruction and we, Christians, don’t seem to care. It is time for us to stand up, speak out and keep the good news of Jesus in front of everyone. In whatever you do, wherever you go, or whatever you say, be a Christian first and allow the world to see that your focus is on God, who is ultimately in control. Yes, we will catch criticisms but we will overcome. Remember what Paul told the Romans in chapter 8, verse 31: “If God is with us, who can be against us?” When you look into a mirror again, ask yourself, “Am I going to be the Christian I should be or am I going to allow the world to dictate what I need to be?” Prayer: Father, thank you for this day of life and all of the opportunities that you send my way. You are a gracious God and I pray that I will serve you in the best manner possible. Amen.
