Park rolls out new website BY STEVE BEAVERS sbeavers@dailycorinthian.com

Tracy Revis (left) and Elizabeth Eubank with Howard+Revis Design Services listen as Shiloh National Military Park Chief Ranger Stacy Allen explains Corinth’s role in the Civil War as the consultants gathered information at the Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center.

Crossroads Regional Park is getting the word out in a different way. Since the middle of December, the park has been taking advantage of the internet in letting the public know what the facility has to offer. “The website is another tool for park users to be informed,” said park director Todd Witt. “All the feedback I have received has been good … it’s an exciting time for us at the

park.” Social media is also being used to promote happenings. “Facebook and Twitter will work hand-in-hand with the website in getting information to those in the community and those from out of town,” added the park director. Built by Zack Steen, the site covers all the facilities at Crossroads Regional Park and E.S. Bishop Memorial Park. Photos of the 1-mile paved walking

Consultants help revamp Verandah-Curlee House Kossuth celebrates BY JEBB JOHNSTON jjohnston@dailycorinthian.com

Consultants visited Corinth during the past week to get to know the look and story of the Verandah-Curlee House Museum as they begin work on plans for interpretation and interior design. The Siege and Battle of Corinth Commission has contracted with Howard+Revis Design Services of Washington, D.C., for interpretation, and subcontractor LCA Associates of Philadelphia will provide a master plan for the interior including colors, fabrics and furnishings for the 1857 to 1862 period in the home’s original

rooms. During several days in Corinth, representatives of both firms visited the 1857 home and met with the Siege & Battle of Corinth Commission, National Park Service, Corinth Area CVB and others closely associated with the home’s care. Tracy Revis, principal with Howard+Revis, said her firm will present several design alternatives. “I think it’s an incredible opportunity to give a different sort of interpretation of the Civil War than you get normally that’s really very humanoriented,” she said. “It can be a great complement to what you’ve already got. You’ve got

all of these battlefield sites where people can kind of put together the big picture, but then to have this opportunity to focus on the individual or the bystander that gets kind of swept up in historic events I think is very interesting.” Gail Winkler of LCA Associates described the historic structure as a “very, very handsome house.” “One of the things we are trying to do is to help the commission return the house to its appearance on the eve of the war,” she said. Although it is a small house,

KOSSUTH — Are you battling winter sniffles and hoarding tissues like its the apocalypse? Do you suspect that you or a loved one may have the flu? Well, you are not alone in your discomfort. With icy weather plaguing Northeast Mississippi, it is hard to find someone whose health hasn’t been affected by the weather.

Cold and flu sufferers now have a new rural location to visit for all their medicinal needs. Kossuth is proud to announce the opening of their new Faith Family Clinic. A recent ceremonial ribbon cutting was held to celebrate then opening. State Rep.

Lifetime love for animals develops into pet-sitting business BY ZACK STEEN zsteen@dailycorinthian.com

Danielle LeBert is content, relaxing in the living room of her east Corinth home. Lying beside her on the coach is her 7-month-old German Shepherd Lab mix puppy, Gretel. On the floor is Gretel’s brother, Shep. “They aren’t happy, unless they are both getting some loving,” LeBert says, as she pets the neck on each dog. “Meow,” LeBert’s 6-monthold “kitty cat”, Oliver, is heard in the distance. Oliver is keeping his eye on squirrels out the front window. LeBert is surrounded by pets ... the way she likes it. From a young age she can remember always being around animals. “As a kid, I had two cats who

were my best friends,” LeBert recalls, laughing. “I grew up on a farm and had a ton of animals. I had so much fun.” The farm was full of horses and cows, she remembers. “We had a bunch of dogs,” LeBert says. “My nickname was Ellie Mae, because I loved animals so much and wanted to keep them all to myself.” The 28-year-old Tupelo native is now the owner of Pet Palz, a Corinth based pet sitting business. “I’ve had my business for about five years and I love it,” LeBert says, as Oliver pushes his face up against her name. “All animals want is to be loved and petted, so I think this is the best job in the world - to provide something, pets can’t get enough of.”

She credits the idea of opening a pet sitting business to husband Scott’s aunt. “Aunt Jean worked for a pet sitter in Michigan,” LeBert recalls. “She helped me get started. She told me how things should be done and all the paperwork needed.” LeBert started out pet sitting animals around her neighborhood, before she advertised the business to the public. “I ran an ad in the newspaper,” she says with a smile. “The first day it ran, I got a phone call and it lead to my first client. A lot of my early business was from word-of-mouth.” LeBert prides herself with getting to know pets and their owners before taking a job.

Representative Nick Bain, the Town of Kossuth board of Alderman, Mayor Donald Pace, the Faith Family Clinic of Kossuth staff, and a host of friends recently celebrated the ribbon-cutting ceremony of Faith Family Clinic of Kossuth with co-owners Kelly Thornton and Brandi Lambert. They are both board certified family nurse practitioners. The clinic is located at 820 Hwy 2 and is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m. to noon Fridays and closed 12-1 for lunch.

CLINIC CONTINUED FROM 1A

Kelly Thornton and Brandi Lambert were all in attendance at the event. The owners are both board certified family nurse practitioners. People in the Kossuth area are excited about the opening of their new clinic and appreciate the fact they won’t have to travel far from home to get medical attention. “What makes it appealing is they accept

walk-ins,” said Randy Holt, director of the Alcorn Alternative Education Center. “A lot of folks don’t want to make an appointment or travel very far. We are glad to have them.” The clinic, located at 820 Hwy 2, is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Fridays. It will close daily for lunch from 12 to 1 p.m. Services available in-

clude primary care, acute care, well-child checks and immunizations, DOT physical and drug screens as well as sports physicals. They accept new patients, including new Medicare patients. The clinic is a provider for most insurances including, Medicaid, Blue Cross Blue Shield, United Healthcare, Cigna, Aetna, MS Magnolia Health and Chips. (For more information call 662-286-0909.)

“We tried to get everything pertaining to the park on there,” said Witt. News and events will be listed along with information dealing with youth and adults sports. “All kind of good information is available on the

site,” said Witt. “In the future, we hope to have all the standings and results available from park action.” (Individuals can view the site by going to www. corinthalcornparks. com.)

trails, soccer field, 10 tennis courts, six baseball/ softball fields, a nine-hole disc golf course and a trio of picnic pavilions around 38 acres are part of the design.

“I’ll go into the owner’s home and meet with them and their ‘fur-babies’,” she adds. “I play with them and love on them ... by the time I leave, the animals love me. That way when I come back by myself, they’ll be happy to see me.” LeBert provides pets fresh food and water, cleans up puppy pad or litter box areas and takes pets on daily walks while owners are out of town. Pets are allowed to follow their customary routine and diet. “I’m here to make it easier for people to leave their pets alone,” LeBert says. “Most people don’t like the idea of leaving their pet in a crate, so they can call me and leave their pet at home.” LeBert also offers to water plants, bring in mail, take out trash and adjust draperies while watching over her client’s pets. “I’ve recently started

This pet sitter doesn’t just watch over dogs and cats, though. “I’ve watched after some pretty bizarre animals - everything from birds and chickens to hedge hogs and ginny pigs,” remembers LeBert. “I once pet sit an exotic turtle named Jennifer.” The animal lover took

a new job in December at Vet Med. She says pet sitting is still her number one priority. “I feel like my job at the vet has helped me understand what animals need even more,” LeBert says. “The vet also allows me to still do my pet sitting whenever I have to, so it’s a perfect fit.” (For more information, contact 212-4884 or connect at facebook. com/petpalz1)

for some time as money is raised to complete the master plan. We will complete basic repairs for the lawn in the spring and hope to have a master landscape plan in the future as funding is available.” Howard+Revis is currently finishing work for the National Civil Rights Museum at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tenn. The firm has also worked on projects with the Sept. 11 Memorial Museum at the World Trace Center Historic Site, George Washington’s Ferry Farm Visitor’s Center,

and the African American Civil War Museum, among others. Winkler, with her husband, Roger Moss, has worked extensively as a consultant for the restoration, preservation and management of historic buildings in Pennsylvania and Maine. “We are excited to have such a well-qualified team on board,” said Williams, “and know that over a period of time, the Verandah House will be one of the most outstanding home museums of the Civil War period in Mississippi.”

she said, “It has all of the bells and whistles that a big house would have.” The Siege and Battle of Corinth Commission hopes to offer the public an opportunity to see the progress on the first weekend in April in conjunction with the annual homes tour. “The opening will be a one-time opportunity to view the progress,” said Commission Chair Rosemary Williams. “Regular hours will be decided at a later time.

Town hall meeting to address dropout rate BY ZACK STEEN zsteen@dailycorinthian.com

Alcorn School District parents are encouraged to attend a special town hall meeting on dropout preventive measures set for Tuesday at 6 p.m. at the Alcorn School District administration office located in the old Win Job Center on County Road 401. School administrators will share information and data on dropout rates district wide. “We plan on discussing the different programs we have in place to help prevent dropout in our schools,”

Five years ago: President Barack Obama’s choice for health secretary, Tom Daschle, apologized for failing to pay more than $120,000 in taxes. (Daschle ended up withdrawing his nomination.) One year ago: Former Navy SEAL and “American Sniper” author Chris Kyle was fatally shot along with a friend, Chad Littlefield, at a gun range west of Glen Rose, Texas.

said Alcorn School District Superintendent Gina Rogers Smith. “There are also some great achievements we will share.” The meeting will provide information and motivation as the district looks at different dropout prevention measures. “I want to figure out how we can prevent a student dropout from even ever occurring,” Smith added. “The knowledge and opinion of the parents is very important on this matter.”

Some light snow showers or flurries are expect Tuesday night into early Wednesday primarily north and west of the Interstate 40 corridor. The best chance for snow in Corinth might come at

the end of the week. “Finally, there is a third threat of wintry weather late Thursday into Friday and possibly even continuing longer across most of the Mid-South,” said NWS. “However, confidence is very low with this system.” None of the systems are expected to repeat the bitterly cold conditions of the last few weeks.

Corinth, Miss.

Passing stirs echoes of better days in Washington The obituary read “William Ephraim Cresswell” and relayed the story of the quiet death of a husband, father and grandfather who died in Springfield, Va., on Jan. 29 at age 87. Cresswell left a wife, three children, a grandson, a brother and a sister to mourn his passing. Those facts alone suggest a family tableau worthy of respect. But there is so much more to “Eph” Cresswell’s life story. For Mississippians of a certain age, “Eph” Cresswell was Sid Salter the gatekeeper, the confidante, Columnist the defender and the trusted sounding board of one of the most powerful men in Mississippi history. From 1958 to 1989, Cresswell was administrative assistant and chief of staff to U.S. Sen. John Cornelius Stennis – the legendary “conscience of the U.S. Senate.” Stennis served in the Mississippi House of Representatives from 1928 to 1932; as a district attorney from 1932 to 1937; as a Circuit Court judge, from 1937 to 1947; and as a U.S. senator from November 1947 to January 1989. He died April 23, 1995, at age 93. During his career, Stennis served as chairman of the Senate Appropriations and Armed Services committees and as President Pro Tempore of the Senate. In 1965, the Senate created the Select Committee on Standards and Conduct, the forerunner of the Senate Ethics Committee. Stennis was the committee’s inaugural chairman. He was a confidante of every U.S. president from Truman to Reagan. A U.S. Navy nuclear aircraft carrier bears his name — a testament to his status as the undisputed “father of the modern nuclear U.S. Navy.” Cresswell served Stennis – and the people of Mississippi and this nation – at the height of Stennis’s long and distinguished career. Cresswell was at the time of his retirement the longest serving Administrative Assistant in the history of the United States Senate. They were an interesting pair – Stennis, the most famous alumnus of Mississippi State University and Cresswell, the devoted Ole Miss law school graduate. Cresswell would tell fellow staffers that he never heard mention of the Egg Bowl from Sen. Stennis in the years Ole Miss won, but heard a lot about it when State won. A veteran of the U.S. Army Air Corps during World War II, Cresswell completed his studies at Ole Miss in 1948 and entered the practice of law in his native Durant. He was elected to the Mississippi House of Representatives in 1952, and he served there until he was appointed assistant attorney general of Mississippi in 1954. When then-Attorney General J.P. Coleman was elected governor of Mississippi in 1956, he appointed Cresswell as his executive assistant and chief of staff. Cresswell joined the senator’s staff in 1958. Rex Buffington, director of the Stennis Center for Public Service at MSU and a former Stennis staffer himself, said: “Eph loved to tell the story about going through the process of moving his young family to Washington to take the job for Sen. Stennis, and then having Sen. Stennis tell him after he arrived that they would ‘try it for a year.’ After a year, Eph told the senator that his family missed Mississippi and had decided to move back, only to have Sen. Stennis tell him that the one year trial was not applicable.” In 2012, the Stennis Center created an award for a top congressional staff member that bears Cresswell’s name. The William E. “Eph” Cresswell Congressional Staff Leadership Award honors a congressional staff member who has demonstrated the ideals of patriotism, integrity and leadership through public service that characterized Cresswell’s life and work. Few men have done more to help more Mississippians — and received less recognition and credit for that service — than did “Eph” Cresswell. Countless economic development, military and state infrastructure projects — plus the rebuilding of the Mississippi Gulf Coast after Hurricane Camille — were projects that he substantially helped Sen. Stennis accomplish down in the trenches. Stennis and Cresswell shared a common trait in addition to their patriotism – unwavering integrity. Sid Salter is a syndicated columnist.

Prayer for today Almighty God, I thank thee for the courage that comes with a great life. Help me to be brave, even if it is only that others may be blest. May I lay a careful foundation and plan to build the best that I can afford. Amen.

Solution to income inequality is opportunity BY BEN S. CARSON Columnist

There has been much discussion about income inequality recently. President Obama seems to think we can make significant progress in eliminating poverty by raising the minimum wage, as his State of the Union address highlighted. Many hope that through a simple declaration, the poor can be elevated to a higher social status. Such people fail to realize that pay is associated with value — otherwise, we could just pay everybody $1 million a year and let everybody be rich. In a capitalistic society, those individuals who produce the wherewithal to obtain income tend to be paid quite handsomely, while individuals who don’t generate significant income are paid accordingly. As in any situation that involves human beings, there will be some abuses, but generally speaking, this kind of system works by incentivizing individuals to do the things necessary to enhance their value in the marketplace. Many in the current administration and their sycophants in the news media are trying to persuade Americans that there is significant improvement in the general economy. But re-

cord numbers of people are enrolling in the food-stamp program and receiving various government subsidies. Common sense dictates that if the economy were improving, there would be an accompanying decline in the number of people depending on government supplements. As a child, I was eyewitness to people who preferred a sedentary, nonproductive life as long as they could collect public assistance. Others, including my mother, from the exact same environment, worked incessantly to try to improve their own lives and those of their children. My mother worked as a domestic in the homes of wealthy people who were generous to her because she was dependable, honest and hardworking. They also learned about my brother and me, because my mother would share our stellar report cards with them once we had conquered our academic doldrums. As a result, these successful people would send us significant monetary incentives to keep up the good work. One of them even loaned me his luxury convertible for a special occasion. I was never resentful of the wealthy; I was inspired by their achievements and wanted to achieve at the

highest possible levels so I could realize my potential and enjoy a pleasant lifestyle. Luxury and a comfortable lifestyle are no longer goals of mine; they are byproducts of making myself valuable to society. I recognized after many difficulties in early childhood that the person who has the most to do with what happens to me in life is me. Other people and the environment could not thwart me unless I permitted it. Only my attitude and acceptance of the victim mentality could get in the way. As an adult, the best thing I can do for young people is to give them hope and opportunity. We all need to realize that by showing them kindness and sharing with them, we can have a significant, positive impact on their lives. We must, however, go beyond rhetoric and put concrete plans into action to allow people to ascend from the lower socioeconomic levels to the apex of our society based on their hard work and creativity. We should be thinking about creative ways to fund schools in order to even out the distribution of resources between wealthy and impoverished neighborhoods. Corporations and busi-

nesses need to concentrate on mutually beneficial apprenticeships and internships for potential workers in their cities. Courses in basic finance and work ethics should be offered in places where such knowledge would not be redundant. These are constructive things that can be done by “we the people.” This does not mean the government doesn’t have an important role to play in promoting economic health. The following Jeffersonian quotation is an excellent definition of good government: “A wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.” In other words, protect people and get out of the way. Let’s use innovation to create opportunity, instead of using government to suppress it. Once we have a vibrant economy, entitlement reform will be a much easier discussion. Ben S. Carson is professor emeritus of neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins University.

A chastened, weary State of the Union Not as bad as expected. That’s my verdict on President Obama’s fifth State of the Union address. With his approval running well under 50 percent, Obama was not quite so confrontational as he has been in the past. He conceded that in the last four years, wages “have barely budged,” that inequality “has deepened” and upward mobility “has stalled.” No more blaming everything on George W. Bush. He noted obliquely that “last year the Voting Rights Act was weakened” without explicitly attacking the Supreme Court for its ruling that states could not be singled out for heightened scrutiny based on low voter turnout in the years from 1964 to 1972. He said he would work with states expanding prekindergarten schooling and limited his Republican bashing to the phrase “as Congress decides what it’s going to do.” He noted approvingly Republican Sen. Marco Rubio’s proposal to reshape the Earned Income Tax Credit. To be sure, many of his proposals were pretty small-ball. He recycled calls for corporate tax reform, port upgrades and hightech manufacturing hubs. He called for patent reform and savings bond investment accounts.

The remedies he Columnist proposed — raising the minimum wage and continuing 100-week unemployment benefits — do pathetically little to address it. Immigration and gun control got brief, vague paragraphs. His defensive paragraphs about Obamacare evoked as much laughter as applause. His proclamation of economic progress was necessarily tepid. His hailing of America’s approaching energy independence necessarily omitted the fact that his administration has done more to discourage than encourage the fracking revolution in oil and natural gas. On issues dear to the heart of Democratic core constituencies, he resorted to outright falsehoods. Women earn only 77 cents for each dollar men earn, he said. That’s a number that goes back to the 1970s. His own Labor Department’s survey says that when you take account of hours worked and type of work, the number is more like 95 cents. “Research shows that one

of the best investments we can make in a child’s life is high-quality early education,” he said. Actually, his own Health and Human Services study has found no lasting value in Head Start programs. “The debate is settled,” he said. “Climate change is a fact.” It is “already harming western communities suffering from drought and coastal cities dealing with floods.” Actually, temperatures have not increased over the last 15 years, as the global warming alarmists’ models predicted. Perhaps they will over the longer run. But most people who accept or reject global warming have the good sense to resist the temptation to claim that any recent unpleasant weather — drought, floods, whatever — confirms their view. Obama was unable to resist. The president spent more time on foreign policy than expected, tacitly acknowledging mistakes. He admitted al Qaeda’s “core leadership” is only on “a path to defeat” and its threat “has evolved” in Yemen, Somalia, Mali and Iraq. That’s an implicit admission that the failure to get an agreement to maintain some U.S. troops in Iraq has increased the threat — and Obama could only say he hopes for such an agreement in Afghanistan.

On Syria, Obama said he would “support the opposition that rejects the agenda of terrorist networks” and work with allies to give the Syrian people “a future free of dictatorship, terror and fear.” How? Iran, he said, was forced to the negotiating table by tough sanctions, but he would veto the bill to add sanctions if negotiations fail — but then would call for more himself. Huh? The best part was the end. Obama told of meeting Army Ranger Cory Remsburg at a D-Day anniversary and then again after he was seriously injured in Afghanistan — and how Remsburg is recovering and determined to serve again. “Men and women like Cory remind us that America has never come easy,” he said, in an eloquent paragraph recounting America’s achievements over 200-plus years that everyone in the audience could agree with. An excellent end to an overlong speech by an apparently chastened and weary president.

Court to rule on autopsy reports

COLUMBIA, S.C. — Are autopsies medical records or public records? South Carolina’s Supreme Court will begin grappling with that question Wednesday, when it hears a lawsuit by a Sumter County newspaper against the county’s coroner. The Item newspaper wants the high court to toss out a lower court’s ruling that said autopsies do not have to be made public because they do not fall under the state’s Freedom of Information Act. The coroner says autopsies should be considered medical records that are exempt from public view. The newspaper says autopsy reports are investigative tools, not medical

Farm bill does away with direct payments MINNEAPOLIS — Farm subsidies that have guided agriculture through record profits in recent years are going away in the five-year farm bill that could become law in the coming week. But new subsidies in the legislation could be just as generous, and farmers aren’t complaining. Gone are direct payments, a politically untenable system in which landowners got fixed amounts per acre, whether crop prices were high or low — or even if they didn’t plant at all. Those will be replaced by a choice of one of two different subsidy approaches that require producers to suffer

losses before they can get payouts. The bill also contains a new insurance-based program for cotton farmers. “We loved the old farm bill,” said Woody Anderson, who grows 3,500 acres of cotton in westcentral Texas near Colorado City. But farmers knew political support for direct payments was fading, he said. “We felt like this insurance type program was innovative. It was reform, if you will, and it was the best we could get in the time that we’re trying to operate in and get a new farm bill,” he said. The farm bill’s authors tout the changes as reform, particularly the elimination of direct payments, which cost $4.5 billion annually. The legislation also caps how much money an individual farmer can receive — $125,000 annually for all payments and loans.

Re-enactment set at Grenada Lake GRENADA — Civil War re-enactors plan a winter encampment and living history demonstrations Feb. 7-9 at Grenada Lake. The events are open to the public and will take place on Mississippi Highway 333. The re-enactors are history buffs from Mississippi and Tennessee and will portray members of the 27th Mississippi Infantry. They will camp and live as Confederate soldiers did in the winter of 1863. Organizers say there will be infantry drills, soldier lectures, bayonet drills, firing demonstrations and a dining area with authentic meals from the Civil War period. During the war, the Grenada area was the center of what was called the Yalobusha Line, a series of Confederate military encampments that stretched from Vicksburg on the Mississippi River northwestward into Alabama. In the Grenada area, fortifications protected

the Central Railroad that supplied the South and its armed forces. More information about the events is available by contacting Scott Garrett at 601-2592240.

Group to build lodge for cancer patients

JACKSON — The American Cancer Society plans to build a 32-room lodge offering free stays for cancer patients being treated at any Jacksonarea hospital or clinic. The Clarion-Ledger reports that the organization plans to break this summer on the $11 million project. It will be located on the University of Mississippi Medical Center campus and — like 31 similar centers around the country — called Hope Lodge. Southern cities with Hope Lodges include New Orleans; Birmingham, Ala.; and Memphis and Nashville, Tenn. University medical center professor emeritus Dr. Ralph Vance, a longtime cancer society volunteer and past president of the national organization, says it will let patients and their

records. Open records advocates say the Sumter County case is an example of government officials making it harder to get public documents. It’s a debate that is far from settled nationally. About 15 states across the U.S. allow the public release of an autopsy report. About a half-dozen other states allow the release of reports not being used as part of a criminal investigation. The rest severely restrict what’s released or don’t give any information from the reports, according to the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press. Keeping autopsy records secret closes off an important tool to make sure police agencies do the right thing when they investigate deaths, especially people shot and killed by officials or who die in

HATTIESBURG — Hattiesburg Zoo officials are looking for a name for the zoo’s newest resident — its second golden eagle. WDAM-TV reports that the male eagle joins “Nugget,” a male exhibited since late 2013. The golden eagle is the mascot of the University of Southern Mississippi’s sports teams. Both birds were injured in their native California, and were in the same rehabilitation facility before coming Hattiesburg. Zoo officials are taking name suggestions online at www.hattiesburgzoo. com or through Twitter using #NameHattiesBird. Online voting is scheduled Feb. 10 at www.hattiesburgzoo.com . Rick Taylor, executive director of the Hattiesburg Convention/Tourism Commissions, says the name will be announced Feb. 22 at USM’s home basketball game against Texas-El Paso.

VICKSBURG — Students in the Vicksburg Warren School District will be able to use tablets and smartphones for educational purposes, such as looking up words in dictionaries — though just when isn’t clear. The Vicksburg Post reports that the district’s Board of Trustees voted 5-0 Thursday night for what they call a “bring your own device” policy. They didn’t say when the new policy will start. Superintendent Chad Shealy says it will match those in some nearby districts. Rankin and Madison counties already allow such use. The board also authorized district athletic director Lum Wright Jr. to check prices for scoreboards for Vicksburg and Warren Central high schools. He says both are from the early to middle 1980s. Wright says there are no longer any spare parts for Warren Central’s scoreboard.

History

National cemetery key to Corinth’s story I’ve been with Shiloh for nearly fifteen years but not all of those have been as a ranger. When I signed on my position was Tractor Operator, and my primary duties were to care for the Shiloh National Cemetery as well as the five Confederate burial trenches. I am a Tom v e t e r a n Parson myself and it was an Park Ranger honor to tend those graves, both Union and Confederate. I have a lot of good memories from my work up at “The Big Park.” And one other thing; I never considered any of them “Yankees” or “Rebels,” and would not, and will not, tolerate anything disrespectful said about any of them. As far as I am concerned they are all American boys who fought for what they believed in, and as such every one of them deserves our undying respect. With that said… Most of you know that there is a National Cemetery here in Corinth but the history of those 20 acres may not be known to one and all. In many ways the story is similar to the Shiloh cemetery but there are a number of differences as well. After the Civil War our city was a vast graveyard. Men from both sides of the conflict were buried helter-skelter across the landscape. Many were buried where they fell in battle and those that died in the dozens of hospitals were interred close by. At no time was there an effort to bury the soldiers in one central location. This changed after the war. In 1866 the Corinth National Cemetery was established as a final resting place for Union soldiers, not just from Corinth but from a wide geographic area. Soldiers from Farmington, Iuka, Brice’s Crossroads, Holly Springs and a host of other sites

Submitted photos

In every national cemetery are plaques bearing the words to the poem “Bivouac of the Dead,” above. The lines were written by Confederate Theodore O’Hara, who once walked the streets of Corinth. This gate marks the entrance to Corinth National Cemetery, where thousands of soldiers are buried, right. were removed from their war time graves and carried into Corinth. Some came from Tennessee as well, and the dead from Parker’s Crossroads, Britton Lane, and Middleburg were given a final resting place in Mississippi. There was no “dog-tag” system back then, so if a grave was not very well marked it was impossible to identify the remains. That is why of the 5,688 Union burials, 3,996 of them are in graves marked “unknown.” All of those burials represent 273 individual regiments from 15 different states. Those are a lot of numbers and yet each grave is more than a number, each is a separate story. There is a man there, under the stone; a husband, a son, a grandson or a father. Perhaps he was someone’s nephew, uncle, cousin, neighbor or just a friend. So beyond all of the numbers they are people. If you drive into the cemetery and park by the flag pole you will find six headstones that are different; rather than a rounded top, each one of the six has a pointed top. These are Confederate headstones. The stones, however, are memorial stones and the men whose names are carved into the marble are still in their original graves

somewhere in Corinth. Take 4th Sergeant William McCullough of Company K, 4th Missouri Infantry, C.S.A. Bill was originally from Wilmington, Delaware but was farming in Marion County, Missouri when the war broke out. He started out as a captain in the 1st Regiment of Cavalry, a state guard unit, but left them to enlist in the 4th Infantry. He fought in the battles of Lexington (Mo.), Farmington, and Iuka. He was killed on the 3rd of October, 1862 in Corinth, probably just north of Shiloh Road between Fulton and Wenasoga. The 4th Missouri was in the heaviest of the fighting near the White House and since the Confederates held the field that night, his comrades most likely buried him where he fell. He wasn’t married and did not have any kids. Aside from a white stone within a brick walled cemetery, there is nothing left to remember him. He was 30 years old. On the far side of the same field of battle, wearing a blue uniform, was Captain David DeWolf, a 38 year-old native of Nova Scotia. David was a farmer in Stark County Illinois when he was commissioned into the 47th

Illinois Infantry. He was older than most of his men and he wrote his wife Matilda as often as he could. His brigade was rushed forward in the final action of October 3rd in a bid to halt what seemed to be an unstoppable Confederate attack. Minutes into the fight David was killed and two days later he was buried close to where he fell. He left behind his dear Matilda, two boys, and three girls, the youngest not quite three years old. Today he is resting in section E, grave No. 153. Somewhere among the unknown graves is Private Daniel Murray, a common laborer from Roscommon, Ireland. Daniel immigrated in the 1850’s and was working in New York City when he enlisted in the 1st U.S. Infantry, the regular army. Early in the war the 1st U.S. was given the job of heavy artillerists and they were trained on the big siege guns. Dan was a member of Company C and as such was assigned with the 25 men of his company inside the small fort known as Battery Robinett. Early on the morning of October 4, he and four others ran across the exposed three hundred yards dividing the armies and captured a 14 pound-

er bronze rifled cannon. A few hours later, during one of the three attacks on Robinett, Pvt. Murray was killed. We are unsure where he is buried, but the cannon that he helped capture is in the lobby here at the Interpretive Center. A particularly sad story is that of Pvt. James Katens of the 57th Illinois Infantry. James was also an Irish immigrant, a laborer living in an all Irish neighborhood in Ward 7 of Chicago. He shared his home with his wife Mary and their three small children. The 57th Illinois was part of the Corinth garrison force and they had fairly plush quarters at Camp Robinett. Spacious wooden barracks in long rows once stood on the green lawn just east of the visitor center. In 1863 Mary and one of the younger children came to visit James and stayed with him in one of the company buildings. In August they grew ill and on the 30th both Mary and the child passed away. When the soldiers graves were moved to the cemetery in 1866 Mrs. Katens and her child were placed together in grave No. 2001. In the graves directly behind them rest the children of two other soldiers. James Katens stayed in the army until

the end of the war and then disappeared into history. A few other seemingly average graves are anything but. Grave No. 2535 is filled with amputated limbs from an Iuka hospital and the one next to it, 2536, is filled with arms and legs from men operated on in Rienzi. Plots 4894 and 4895 are brothers but their names and unit are no longer known. Over in Section B is Private Thomas Pool, an 18 year-old runaway slave who was illiterate and had to sign his enlistment papers with an “X.” Thomas was accidently killed by a pistol shot to the head in July, 1865, several months after the war was effectively over. He had left his master’s farm in Cherokee County, Alabama and enlisted in the 1st Alabama Cavalry (US) in Rome, Georgia. Of particular note: the 1st Alabama Cavalry was a white regiment that had a number of black enlisted men openly serving in the ranks as privates. There are other men there as well, men who served in other wars, some of who fell in battle and others who did their time and died in peace. There are veterans within those walls who fought in the Belleau Wood, Normandy, Khe San, Kuwait City, and Fallujah. They served on land, air and sea and now they all rest in Corinth. The cemetery is decorated with flags each Memorial Day and a number of folks come out to hear the speeches, lay a few wreaths and listen to the rifle salute. For the other 364 days of the year the burial ground is pretty quiet. There are still burials and there is of course the sound of weeping. Yes, it is a melancholy place, but it is also a place of honor and inspiration. The gates are open every day and anyone can come inside to pay their respects to those men, and women, many of who placed themselves between you and harm. You should come and visit them.

New Civil War trail set to open Sale of cotton factory made Memphis news BY TERRI FERGUSON SMITH The Meridian Star

MERIDIAN — A Civil War Trail in Lauderdale County will be unveiled Feb. 14 on the 150th anniversary of Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman’s burning of Meridian. The county’s tourism department, Visit Meridian, will host a civil war symposium prior to the unveiling, according to assistant director Stephen Martin. “That is the day the burning began in 1864. So we thought how appropriate to unveil our trail and the markers on that day as a tie-in to its historical significance,” Martin said. The Civil War trail will include 10 markers throughout the area displaying the historical significance of the location, he said. The marker to be unveiled on the anniversary will be at Union Station. That area is of historical importance because of Meridian’s railroad system at the time of the Civil War, Martin said. At that time the population of Meridian was about 400, Martin said. The city, situated on the Alabama border and with a direct line to Jackson, was of strategic importance to the Union. With a cannon foundry in Selma, Ala., Sherman naturally wanted to disable Meridian’s three railroad systems, Martin said. The winter campaign served as a precursor to Sherman’s March to the Sea in Georgia.

The often-overlooked Mississippi campaign was the first attempt by the Union at total warfare, a strike aimed not just at military objectives but also at the will of the Southern people. After capturing Meridian, Sherman began to destroy the railroad and storage facilities. Sherman later wrote: “For five days, 10,000 men worked hard and with a will in that work of destruction... Meridian, with its depots, storehouses, arsenals, hospitals, offices, hotels, and cantonments no longer exists.” Martin said: “But just in 26 days, the city rebuilt. That’s just how resilient the community was.” The work to establish the trail has been a cooperative effort of local officials. In addition to preserving the area’s history, the focus of tourism officials is to create more something that visitors to Lauderdale County will want to see, according to Dede Mogollon, executive director of Visit Meridian. About half the bus tour inquiries coming into the state show an interest in either the Civil War or the Civil Rights Movement, Mogollon said. “Our musical legacy, Civil War, civil rights history and outdoor recreation are the four things we have significantly identified and promoted. We rolled out our musical legacy in the fall. We’re rolling out Civil War in February,” Mogollon said. “We are anticipating rolling outdoor recre-

ation pieces in April; and very shortly after, Civil Rights.” It’s just part of their goal to continue to promote Meridian and Lauderdale County, Martin said. “We are a product just like anything else,” Martin said. “We’re always trying to enhance that product and this is something that’s been needed for a long time.” Each marker will be equipped with a QR code, which will allow smartphone users to get much more information than is available on the marker itself, Mogollon said. One of the advantages of such a trail is that visitors do not have to take the tour during set hours. It’s a selfguided tour and those taking the tour can do it at their own pace, Mogollon said. In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the civil rights movement’s Freedom Summer, a civil rights trail will be unveiled in a few months, Mogollon said, which also will have markers with QR codes. It will likely be more extensive than the Civil War trail because they are making every effort to be certain that all of the information on the trails can be verified. “Everybody has a number of great stories to tell,” Martin said. “Being a stickler for historical accuracy, unless we can back it up and verify it — that’s why we’ve had to limit what we’ve done in terms of what we are putting out there.”

In the August 30th, 1870, issue of The Memphis Daily Appeal of Memphis, a Tishomingo County cotton factory was listed for sale. Touted as the finest water power in the South, the Bay Springs Cotton Mills was available for an exchange of city property or to be sold to the highest bidder. The newspaper noted RaNae that the factory’s Vaughn machinery was all new, and the Historically Speaking place of business was currently in operation successfully. The location of the property was situated in the southern portion of Tishomingo County, Miss., 25 miles south of Iuka on the stage road leading to Fulton and Aberdeen. The description of the property was as follows: 800 acres of land, covered with fine timber; one large frame factory house, 52 by 42 feet, 3 ½ stories, and 576 spindles; one large room storehouse, with good cellars; one large frame carpenter shop; one large blacksmith shop; one large cotton shed and wood carder; five double houses, for operatives, passage between; four single houses, with shed attached; four single houses, without sheds; one large mill house, with corn and wheat mill; one large gin house; one sawmill, with new circular saw; besides dwelling houses, sta-

bles, cribs, etc. A large, bold and never-failing stream of water passing through a natural rock canal—the left bank 30 feet and the right bank 25 feet high, of solid rock. The bed or bottom is also solid rock; in fact, it is a solid rock canal, with capacity to drive 4,000 to 10,000 spindles; in a health locality, with good road to Iuka; a splendid orchard of about 300 choice apple trees, and a fine peach orchard. The newspaper stated that it was a splendid opportunity for capitalists to invest in the finest water power in the South, with all necessary buildings already built on the premises and large enough for spinning or weaving, or both, if desired. Terms for purchase were liberal and negotiable and should be made to the Donoho, Joy & Co., Real Estate and Emigration Agency, 24 Madison Street, Memphis, Tenn.

Husband destroys wife’s trust trying to shore up business DEAR ABBY: During the past three years, my husband and I managed to save about $45,000 for a down payment on the purchase of a new home. (We each put in about half.) Early last month, I asked my husband if he liked one house we had just seen, and he confessed that he had taken all the money we had saved and put it into a struggling business he has had for 12 years and which I helped him run on weekends. I am devastated! It’s not just the money, which was for our future. The plan was to purchase an affordable home and pay it off quickly. But he lied to me, strung me along and stole from me, because half of that money was mine. There is no chance he can repay it. My trust in him and our marriage is broken. What are your thoughts? — CRUSHED IN PALM HARBOR, FLA. DEAR CRUSHED: Because the basis of any successful partnership -- and that includes marriage -- is trust, I think you have some serious thinking to do. And if you decide to remain married to your husband, you should have access to all documents connected to both your finances in the future. DEAR ABBY: I am blessed to have many friends who invite me to parties and gatherings. I met a guy at one of them and we had a nice conversation. A few days later he called me. He said he’d gotten my number from

our mutual friend. (I had given her permission to give it out to people who had been at the party.) We talked Abigail some more Van Buren and kept talking and Dear Abby exchanging emails over the course of a couple of months. Because it wasn’t every day or even every week, I thought we were just friends. At the next party he asked me out on a date -- a romantic date. This is a problem. I identify as an aromantic asexual. I do not feel the things he does. Having to explain my sexual orientation to people is embarrassing. Any advice on how to convey this without ruining the friendship we have developed? — EMBARRASSED IN INDIANA DEAR EMBARRASSED: Try saying it this way: “I’m flattered, but it would be better if we remain just friends. I think you’re terrific, but I am not a romantic or sexual person. It has nothing to do with you. It’s just the way I am and always have been.” DEAR ABBY: I am a strong and independent 18-year-old girl. I have been with my boyfriend, “Cash,” for four years and he has been an ever-present rock in my life. His 21st birthday

is soon, and I’m afraid it may alter our relationship because of things he will be able to do, such as drinking. I want some form of commitment from him before his birthday, so I can be sure he’s as serious about our relationship as I am. Cash says he doesn’t want to make a commitment now because he wants time to be young and stupid. I understand where he’s coming from, but it seems like he’s setting us up for disaster. Why can’t we be young and stupid together? I’m not asking for marriage now, but a long engagement would prove his devotion to me. Isn’t this a reasonable expectation? If it is, how do I tell him? — WANTS SOME COMMITMENT IN NEBRASKA DEAR WANTS: For a young woman who is strong and independent, you appear to be somewhat clingy and needy. Commitments such as the kind you’re looking for must be made voluntarily, not as a result of arm-twisting. The harder you try to rope Cash in, the more confined he’s going to feel, so my advice is to loosen up or you stand a good chance of driving him away.

Horoscopes ARIES (March 21-April 19). You may not be aware of all the people who are on your side, but you have more supporters than you think. Know that you are not alone and that your decisions affect many people. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You can never tell where your influence will stop. People will remember the little things you did, the way you made them feel and how their experience was better because of you. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’re in an uncharacteristically reserved mood. Maybe you didn’t say what you wanted to say, but it’s better this way. Your actions will bring results where your words would not. CANCER (June 22-July 22). People seem to expect you to entertain them. Today you’re wondering when it’s your turn to be entertained. This afternoon you’ll see evidence that others think like you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Circumstances this afternoon enhance the opinions you already have, and that makes you feel validated, correct and really smart. It’s true that you’ve learned well, and you’ll keep learning, too. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll be most effective when you can tell your story as dispassionately as you tell a story about a fictional character. Your lack of emotion will be an invitation for others to fill in the emotional blanks. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re attractive now, and someone may start forming an image of you as the perfect fit for a role they’ve been trying to fill. Don’t let them! Nip this in the bud. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Water doesn’t stop for trees and rocks in its path; it finds its way around. As you obey your watersign gift of intuition, you will flow with liquid ease to the best pos-

sible outcome. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your heart is good. You respect other people’s choices and their separate existence from you. That’s why you can legitimately wish someone well and yet not want to see that person again. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’re learning the rules and culture of a new group. Just because you feel like a beginner doesn’t mean you should keep quiet. Jump in and let the others know more about you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). When you express yourself, you’re vulnerable, but not as vulnerable as you are when you take action. That’s why the movers and shakers deserve the respect they command. You’re about to become one of them. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Something you’re doing seems much harder than it should be, but you’ll persevere anyway.

Wildcats endure Tigers on road Associated Press

COLUMBIA, Mo. — Kentucky’s back to having fun. One game after calling a players-only meeting to discuss the team’s issues away from home, the Wildcats kept their poise at Missouri on Saturday, escaping with an 84-79 win. “It was fun, actually,” Aaron Harrison said. “When we play together, we have a lot more fun.” Harrison scored 21 points and James Young added 20 to help Kentucky (165, 6-2 Southeastern Conference) improve to 2-3 on the road after losing 87-82 at LSU on Tuesday. Harrison’s 3-pointer just 1:42 into the game gave the team a lead it wouldn’t relinquish, but it wasn’t easy. Jabari Brown finished with a careerhigh 33 points and Jordan Clarkson scored 28 to keep Missouri (16-5, 4-4) in the game. Clarkson’s layup with 51.9 seconds remaining narrowed the Tigers’ deficit to 80-77, but Harrison answered with a layup 30 seconds later to end the threat. “We’re a talented team,” Clarkson said. “We weren’t going to let them just blow us out.” Despite the teams combining for 41 fouls and the lack of lead changes, the game carried a frenzied pace as Kentucky tried to pull away early in the second half but couldn’t bury Missouri. The Wildcats led 61-49 with 11:44 remaining before Missouri used a 10-2 run to get back into it. Please see SEC | 11A

Olivia Jones (seated) got a surprise when she showed up to bowl on Thursday at Plaza Lanes. Her Alley Kats teammates Shirley Marlar (from left), Judy Clement and Debra Eskridge turned the usual bowling time into a birthday party for Jones.

Avid weekly bowler turns 90 BY STEVE BEAVERS sbeavers@dailycorinthian.com

Olivia Jones doesn’t care for a lot of notoriety. That didn’t stop members from her bowling league surprising the soon-to-be 90-year-old with a prebirthday celebration at Plaza Lanes. Although her birthday isn’t until Feb. 3, “OJ” – as she is known by her bowling teammates – celebrated with numerous friends of the Thursday Morning Coffee League this week. “She fits all of our personalities … all of us are on the same level and a little ornery,” said bowling teammate Debra Eskridge with a smile. Jones, who took up bowling after 35 years at Ripley Industries, is the bowling alley’s oldest bowler, according to Plaza Lanes owner David Curry. “I don’t think about age … it’s the last thing I think about,” said the spry Jones. “Bowling is something I prepare for every Thursday.” “She is one of the sweetest

ladies I know,” added Curry. “I can’t wait to get a hug from her every Thursday.” An Iuka resident since 1969, Jones decided to try the game after watching it on television. “I wanted to see if I could do it,” she said of bowling. “I have been able to meet a lot friends through bowling.” After retiring in 1995, Jones has driven herself to the bowling alley on Shiloh Road each Thursday to bowl with her Alley Kats team which also includes Judy Clement, Shirley Marlar and Eskridge. “We just adopted her,” said Clement after a former teammate left to open a spot for Jones. “I’m here each Thursday,” added OJ. Jones even continued to bowl after having both knees replaced in 2000. “I was out six months and couldn’t wait to get back,” said the oldest member of Alley Kats. “Bowling helps me get the physical exercise that Please see JONES | 11A

Olivia Jones will turn 90 on Feb. 3, making her the oldest bowler at Plaza Lanes.

Different QB styles clash at Super Bowl BY BARRY WILNER Associated Press

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey — This Super Bowl has just about everything a fan, a player, a coach — and certainly a league — could ask for. Denver’s record-setting offense versus Seattle’s relentlessly stingy defense. Coaches who actually smile and think football should be fun. A wintry setting, and the best two teams in the NFL.

“It’s very special to be here,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said of today’s big game. “Look at this event that our players are having to take part of. The game, the matchup, the culmination of the season, all of this is just extraordinary.” This Super Bowl could also have a profound effect on the immediate future of pro football. It may be a referendum on whether the NFL’s showpiece event should ever again

be held outdoors in a coldweather city. But more likely is it being a strong indicator about the future of the quarterback position. The game will feature the classic pocket passer emblematic of the old guard — Denver’s veteran Peyton Manning, who has had an extraordinarily prolific season. Against him is Seattle’s quick-footed, quick-witted scrambler Russell Wilson, who represents the new guard

along with the likes of Robert Griffin III, Colin Kaepernick, Cam Newton, even Andrew Luck. Seattle’s miserly defense wants to force Manning into uncomfortable territory, which means anywhere outside the passing pocket. Denver’s defense will be intent on giving Wilson a taste of claustrophobia by keeping him hemmed in the pocket. Please see SUPER | 11A

Mississippi rolls to late win over Gamecocks Associated Press

OXFORD, Miss. — For about seven minutes, Mississippi played its best basketball of the season. It couldn’t have come at a better time. Minutes away from a crushing defeat, Ole Miss rallied for one of its biggest wins of the season, beating South Carolina 75-71 on Saturday after

erasing a 15-point deficit in the second half. “That was big-time basketball,” Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy said. “You’re down 15 against a team that’s playing well and you’re on your heels. Then you make everything happen. You make it happen defensively, you make timely shots, you execute, you come up with loose balls, you

make free throws. That was a tremendous effort.” Jarvis Summers was the catalyst in the comeback, making several clutch plays in the final minutes. He hit a 3-pointer with just under 4 minutes remaining that gave the Rebels a 67-66 lead — their first of the second half. Then the 6-foot-3 guard hit an 18-foot jumper and a la-

yup to keep the Rebels ahead in the tense final minutes. He also tipped away in the loose ball as the clock wound down, allowing Ole Miss to keep possession and hang on for the victory. He finished 6 of 11 from the field and had eight assists. Marshall Henderson led the Rebels with 21 points and also had four steals.

Odom scores 18, Vandy beats Mississippi St. Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn— Slow down the game by using up as much of the shot clock each possession as possible or playing zone on defense, the Vanderbilt Commodores are willing to do whatever it takes. Now they’re starting to

string together some victories. Rod Odom scored 18 points, and Vanderbilt beat Mississippi State 55-49 Saturday for their third straight win. “All the ones that we win are probably going to be just like this,” Vanderbilt coach Kevin Stallings said. “They’re

probably going to be dog fight, grind-it-out games where we’ve got to make some plays down the stretch and at the end. And I’m proud of our team because we’re getting better at doing that.” The Commodores (12-8, 4-4 Southeastern Conference) have to work harder

because they’re down to only seven scholarship players. Kyle Fuller added 14 points playing a full 40 minutes for his fourth game since league play started in January, and Dai-Jon Parker notched his sixth such game. Odom got a minute of rest in the first half that kept him from his fifth.

I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t normally get.â&#x20AC;? Her bowling friends marvel at Jones. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We all hope we are doing as well as her when we turn 90,â&#x20AC;? said Sharon Keen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I lost my mother last year when she was 90, now I think of Olivia as my mother,â&#x20AC;? added teammate Marlar. Jones, an avid quilter, said â&#x20AC;&#x153;she would like to bowl 200â&#x20AC;? this year after turning 90. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have never bowled 200 â&#x20AC;Ś I got close with a 196, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gone downhill since then,â&#x20AC;? she said with a smile. The Iuka transplant, as Jones refers to herself, will be celebrating today with her church, Oak Grove, in Moscow, Tenn. Then it will be back to bowling come Thursday â&#x20AC;&#x201C; something she isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t planning on giving up any time soon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My doctor told me I would probably live to be a 100, unless I get hit by a train,â&#x20AC;?said Jones with a straight face. Until then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to roll a ball every Thursday morning.

SUPER CONTINUED FROM 10A

Both QB approaches work for their offenses, or else these two teams wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t each be 15-3, top seeds in their conferences and facing off for the championship. The quarterback differences â&#x20AC;&#x201D; aside from age, time of service in the pros, or even their height â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Manning is about 15 centimeters (6 inches) taller than Wilson â&#x20AC;&#x201D; make this Super Bowl even more intriguing. There will always be a place in anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s starting lineup for a Peyton Manning, who deserves strong consideration in the debate about the greatest quarterback in history, regardless of whether he adds a second Super Bowl ring on Sunday. Teams construct their offense around a talent like that. Whether most teams will stick with convention or choose mobile, creative and elusive passers such as Wilson wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be decided by who wins at the Meadowlands. But it could play a significant role. Wilsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s multi-faceted abilities on the field might differ in method to Manningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, but Carroll sees many similarities off the playing field. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an incredible competitor in every way,â&#x20AC;? Carroll said of his quarterback, who at 25 is 12 years younger than Manning.

Wine enthusiast says train the palate BY ZACK STEEN zsteen@dailycorinthian.com

Jensen Curtis is quick to tell people he’s not a wine expert, but a wine enthusiast. The 26-year-old is a walking encyclopedia of wine information. The assistant manager at J.R.’s Wine & Spirits, Curtis loves to persuade his customers to try different wines. “We have folks come into the store and buy the same wine every time,” said Curtis. “From knowing what kind they’re used to drinking, I can better tell them what they should try next.” With Curtis’ help, in less then six months J.R.’s Wine & Spirits moved from 128th to 75th in overall total wine sales in Mississippi. “I have a passion for what I do,” he said. “I love telling people about different wines and teaching them it’s okay to try new stuff.” According to Curtis, it’s all about training the palate. “If a person normally drinks a sweet wine, then they should try a less sweet wine next, then the stronger flavored wines last,” Curtis said. “This will train their palate. I tell people to start with the light, white wines and slowly move into the heavier, red wines.” Curtis learned how to train his own palate while working at Colony Wine Market in Madison. His boss, Scott Jackson, was a trained certified sommelier, a title Curtis hopes to hold one day. A sommelier is a trained wine professional who specializes in all aspects of wine service, most importantly wine and food pairing. A person must pass four intense courses at The Court of Master Sommeliers, a specialty school in San Francisco, in order to become a master sommelier (a.k.a., wine expert). “While working for Scott, I learned tons about wine,” said Curtis. “I shadowed him for three years. He helped me understand wine better and emphasized wine etiquette.” Curtis said Jackson would invite staff to his home and open up a dozen or so bottles to allow his staff to taste test and smell the various wines. This helped his staff become more knowledgeable about the wines they were selling. “He would sometimes send these ‘education bottles’ home with me,” added Curtis. “That helped open my world up to so much self discovery.

I quickly found out the right wine can make food taste a hundred times better.” Curtis made notes about the many different wines he tried. Soon he was answering questions about wine with a lot more knowledge and confidence. “I started comparing my notes with what experts wrote about these different wines,” he added. “I was able to point out the same things as the experts. It was so much fun.” The MSU communication graduate had found his passion. “I had never enjoyed something so much,” he said. Originally from Clinton, Curtis was working in Madison when he met his girlfriend, Corinth native Jennifer Holder. A 2007 graduate of Alcorn Central High School, Holder was in the Jackson area completing school at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. When Holder graduated in 2012, she moved home. After months of driving from Madison to Corinth, Curtis decided to relocate to the Crossroads area. Curtis recently met with Russell Smith, owner and chef at Smith. restaurant about improving the downtown eatery’s wine selection and pairings. “My main focus is helping people try something new,” Curtis said. “I want folks to be able to go to a restaurant and have the confidence to order a certain type of wine.” Curtis wants the public to understand if the wrong wine is paired with the wrong food, it will cause the entire experience to be bad. “If you drink a wine that pairs perfectly with a particular dish, then it changes the entire experience,” he said. “It makes the wine pop, the food pop and makes the experience exciting.” Curtis, who also has a bar tenders license, advised Smith on which wines would pair best with some of his customers’ favorite menu items. The spinach salad found on the lunch menu would pair best with an Acrobat Oregon Pinot Gris white wine. “The granny smith apples on the salad will really bring out the crisp tones in the wine,” Curtis said. The popular Pasta Jambalaya on the dinner menu would pair best with the Cotes Du Rhone Vidal-Fleury red wine. “Light foods in flavor go best with light wines,

but it’s hard figuring out what goes best with certain food.” The servers at the restaurant have benefited as well. “Jensen has showed us how to properly serve wine. He has helped our servers be more confident when talking about wine to our customers,” he said. “If our severs know what they are talking about, then our custom-

on becoming a certified sommelier. Until then he’ll continue informing Corinthians about the thousands of different wine flavors available. “I promise, there’s a different wine for every tongue,” he added.

School boards could face voters under House plan Associated Press

JACKSON — Mississippi House members are trying again to pass legislation that would require school board members to be elected. But they’re willing to let voters decide on electing or appointing local school superintendents. The House Education Committee voted Thursday to require school board members to be elected starting in 2016. The panel also voted to require the roughly 60 districts with an elected superintendent to hold a referendum in November on switching to an appointed superintendent. Now, either some or all city school board members are appointed, typically by the mayor. House

members note boards can raise property taxes and say only elected officials should be able to do so. All members of county boards are currently elected, as are some representatives of city boards who live in areas outside the city limits. Senate Education Committee Chairman Gray Tollison, R-Oxford, said about 70 percent of school board members are currently appointed. Many mayors and some education groups oppose ending appointed boards in cities. “These bills will discourage school board service by professional, high quality candidates who are willing to serve but not willing to raise funds and wage a political

“We’ve always had an elected school superintendent and it’s always worked well. I think people in my district want to elect their superintendent.” Rep. Joe Warren State representative campaign,” the Parents Campaign, an education lobbying group, wrote to supporters Thursday. “The effect would likely be to diminish the quality of boards in municipal districts.” Rep. Brad Mayo, ROxford, who was shepherding House Bill 442 through committee, amended it to require that three members of each

board would be elected at the same time, while the president and two members would be elected two years later, when U.S. House members are elected. Mayo said that would ensure some continuity on boards, addressing one criticism. “You wouldn’t wipe out the whole board at one time,” Mayo said.

Reformers have long sought appointed superintendents throughout Mississippi, saying that school boards should be able to fire superintendents and saying that political conflict can develop in systems with elected boards and elected superintendents. “In my mind, that is the No. 1 education issue, changing from elected to appointed superintendents,” Tollison said. The House defeated a bill last year to appoint superintendents in some smaller districts. Instead, House members demanded that residents in all districts that now elect school chiefs hold a referendum on electing or appointing them, and that’s what House

Bill 825 would grant. Senators didn’t want to allow a vote unless a certain number of residents signed a petition, what’s called a reverse referendum in Mississippi. However, Rep. Joe Warren, D-Mount Olive, voted against even a referendum. “We’ve always had an elected school superintendent and it’s always worked well,” he said after the vote. “I think people in my district want to elect their superintendent.” Members of the committee from DeSoto County, who have opposed changing from an elected superintendent in Mississippi’s largest district, were not present at Thursday’s meeting.

Wedding

How to pull off a destination wedding wedding, couples would be wise to take a few things to heart. â&#x20AC;˘ Make it an affordable affair. Couples often fret about financing their weddings, and the same concerns might come up for those invited to a destination wedding. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t choose a destination that will require guests to spend a substantial amount of money for a single weekend. Doing so is unfair to your guests, and it might keep many of them from attending the wedding. â&#x20AC;˘ Get the word out early. A destination wedding is typically held in an idyllic locale, and such destinations are usually expensive to visit. Couples should keep this mind and get the word out as early as possible, sending out their save-the-date cards earlier than they would if they were having a more traditional wedding. The earlier you get the word out, the less ex-

McGraw â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Green Miss Erin Michelle McGraw and Dr. Walter Gilmore Green Jr. will exchange vows at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 1, 2014, at First Baptist Church in Yazoo City. The bride-elect is the daughter of Bill and Lori McGraw of Yazoo City. She is the granddaughter of Mrs. Ruby Fountain and the late Norman Fountain and the late Mr. and Mrs. Pat McGraw. The prospective groom is the son of Sherra Green and the late Walter Green. He is the grandson of the late Mr. and Mrs. Jimmy Northcutt and the late Mr. and Mrs. John Hillie Green. Miss McGraw is a 2004 graduate of Manchester

She is presently employed at Baptist Family Medicine in Byram. Dr. Green is a 2001 graduate of Corinth High School and a 2008 graduate of Mississippi State University where he received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree. He is presently employed at Randall Veterinary Hospital in Byram. All friends and relatives of the couple are invited to attend the ceremony and the reception which follows.

Sunday, February 2, 2014

Destination weddings are a great way for couples to commemorate their big days in an idyllic locale. According to the Association of Bridal Consultants, 5 to 7 percent of all weddings are destination weddings, indicating that couples no longer feel obligated to tie the knot in their hometowns. Though a destination wedding can create cherished memories for couples and their guests, couples must be realistic before they commit to walking down the aisle on a Caribbean beach or in a Scottish castle. For instance, couples who still hope their friends and family members can share in their special days must know that a destination wedding might drastically reduce the number of guests who can make it to the wedding. So when planning a destination

pensive and more flexible flights might be. â&#x20AC;˘ Seek discounts. Couples who choose traditional weddings are eligible for hotel discounts, wherein the hotel will reserve a block of rooms for the couple and their guests. This is also true for destination weddings. Many resorts now have wedding packages that discount rooms for all involved with the wedding. Vendors are often open to negotiation as well. â&#x20AC;˘ Hire a wedding planner. Couples who choose a more traditional wedding can usually get by without the help of a wedding planner. However, couples going the destination wedding route will almost certainly need a wedding planner, especially for those getting married in a foreign country where another language is spoken. â&#x20AC;˘ Stay calm. One of the best things about a destination wedding is that

they are typically devoid of the stress that comes with planning a more traditional wedding. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s especially true of island weddings, where vendors often move at a slower pace than mainland vendors. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more, options with respect to decor and cuisine might be more limited for island weddings, so couples wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to agonize over each and every decision. That said, couples need to adapt to this more laid back approach and make the most of it rather than stressing out over communication mishaps or other bumps in the road. â&#x20AC;˘ Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make your wedding day your first day there. While a Parisian wedding might sound like the stuff of fairytales, couples who have never before been to Paris should visit at least once prior to their big day, if not once before choosing the destination.

Tips for newlyweds about to merge finances ditures and spending habits as early as possible, as one of the biggest hurdles newly married couples must clear is coming to grips with one anotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial habits. â&#x20AC;˘ Pay off any debts. The cost of weddings has skyrocketed over the last several decades, and many newlyweds find themselves in a considerable amount of debt upon returning from their honeymoons. When merging finances, couples should prioritize paying down such debt, as debt is a significant source of stress for newlyweds and longmarried couples alike. â&#x20AC;˘ Make note of mutual expenses and open a joint account to pay for those expenses. Mutual expenses like mortgage payments, food and

For the Daily Corinthian

Newlyweds often have a lot on their plates upon returning from their honeymoons. One of the more critical issues newly married couples must address is their finances and how those finances will be combined going forward. Combining finances can be a touchy subject for many couples, but there are steps couples can take to make the process of merging finances go more smoothly. â&#x20AC;˘ Discuss finances early and often. Allowing finances to be the elephant in the room is a mistake, as couples do not want to begin their lives together treading lightly around an issue as significant as finances. Couples should discuss their expen-

utilities should be the responsibility of each partner, and a joint account should be established to handle such expenses. â&#x20AC;˘ Make concessions for one another. When merging finances, couples often discover that they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see eye-to-eye on how each person spends money. Couples who successfully merge their finances often note the importance of making concessions with regard to their partnersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; spending on certain hobbies or luxuries. As long as those hobbies are not putting couples in debt or jeopardizing their financial goals, couples can make concessions so their partners continue to be happy and enjoy their favorite activities.

Brands vie to stand out amid Super Bowl chatter BY BARBARA ORTUTAY AP Technology Writer

NEW YORK — If it’s on TV, it’s on Twitter, at least when it comes to blockbuster events such as the Super Bowl. Advertisers, in particular, are ready to capitalize. “What advertisers have realized is that Super Bowl advertising doesn’t just take place on TV, with your 30-second or 60-second spot that you paid millions of dollars for,” said Debra Aho Williamson, an analyst for research firm eMarketer. “You really need to have a broader presence.” Last year’s Super Bowl was interrupted by a 34-minute power outage — luckily, for one advertiser at least. Oreo seized on the opportunity and tweeted “you can still dunk in the dark.” It was retweeted and mentioned on Facebook thousands of times. Every brand wants to be this year’s Oreo. Brands are setting up social me-

dia “war rooms” so they can respond to memorable events as they happen — be it another blackout, a snow storm or a wardrobe malfunction — with clever, retweetable quips. Volkswagen has set up a studio in Los Angeles to create quick, catchy video responses, said Jennifer Clayton, media manager at the automaker. There will be about a dozen people in the room, from creative and production folks to community managers in charge of monitoring chatter on social media. Once a video is shot, it’ll be sent to Volkswagen’s lawyers for approval and, within 20 minutes, posted on Twitter. “We are taking advantage of all the conversations going on out there and making it even more impactful,” she said. “We’re taking a 30- (or) 60-second spot and turning it into a campaign that’s multiple days and multiple screens.” The game is a big day

Cryptoquip

for Twitter, too. The company will have its own employees in the “war rooms” of some advertisers, helping them identify what people are tweeting about the most and helping them develop quick, clever reactions. Beyond advertising, people will be conversing with fellow fans, using Twitter hashtags such as #Seahawks, #Hawks and #12s for the Seattle Seahawks and #Broncos, #Denver and #UnitedInDenver for the Denver Broncos. There will be #SB48 for the Super Bowl and #AdScrimmage to vote for your favorite Super Bowl ads. People have also created unofficial ones — such as #PotBowl — a reference to the fact that the teams hail from states that have legalized recreational marijuana. Advertising, though, is where a lot of money is at stake. For every Oreo, there are dozens, perhaps hundreds of tweets that fall

flat, even if they were conjured in a room full of social media experts and marketers. During last Sunday’s Grammys, “a lot of brands tried to do it but only one stood out,” Williamson said. That one was Arby’s. Singer Pharrell Williams showed up at the awards show wearing an oversized, puffy brown fedora. It quickly got its own parody Twitter account (with more than 18,000 followers), not to mention all the Twitter mentions. The fast-food chain known for its big cowboy hat logo quickly tweeted “Hey @ Pharrell, can we have our hat back? #GRAMMYs.” It went over well. Arby’s tweet got more than 83,000 retweets and a response from Williams himself: “Y’all tryna start a roast beef?” “Brands need to have the perfect storm of the right opportunity, the right message and most critically, a relationship between your brand and whatever it is that you are trying to connect about,” analyst Williamson said. “If it’s forced or if (it looks) planned, it’s going

to come across negatively.” Admitting that the right moment may never come up, some brands are taking a different approach. M&M’s marketers plan to use Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and the videosharing app Vine to distribute short animated videos made from peanut M&M’s. The clips will include commentary from the legendary retired quarterback Joe Montana. Seth Klugherz, senior director for Mars Inc.’s M&M’s brand, said in a statement that the brand is “not simply hoping to ‘win the night’ with a single post or tweet” but add to viewers’ experience throughout the night. Elsewhere in candy land, Butterfinger plans to riff off its brand name, which is slang for someone who tends to drop stuff — such as a football. “The idea of a Butterfinger moment, organically, the name of our brand will come up,” Butterfinger brand manager Jeremy Vandervoet said. “We can’t predict it but we’re going to be ready to respond. We don’t know

how it will happen.” Even without a blackout, Sunday’s game is likely to be the most tweeted, Facebooked and Instagrammed-about Super Bowl, simply because more people — and brands — are tweeting, Facebooking and Instagramming than a year ago. There were 2.8 million tweets about the 2011 Super Bowl. That grew to nearly 14 million in 2012 and more than 24 million in 2013. Not wanting to be left out when it comes to public chatter about big events, Facebook recently introduced its own take on trending topics. The feature is starting to come to users in the U.S., U.K. and elsewhere. It lets users see what topics others are talking about, whether that’s the Super Bowl or their favorite commercial. Still, Williamson said it’s still unproven how effective all this real-time marketing is. People might be tweeting about Oreo and Arby’s, but are they eating their cookies and roast beef sandwiches?

Bobby Vee braves Alzheimer’s to record just one more time BY JEFF BAENEN Associated Press

Crossword

ST. JOSEPH, Minn. — Bobby Vee still has the infectious smile, bright eyes and boyish good looks of his 1960s pop idol days, when he scored such hits as “Take Good Care of My Baby,” ‘‘Rubber Ball” and “The Night Has a Thousand Eyes.” Alzheimer’s disease forced Vee to stop performing in 2011, but the 70-year-old Vee — who helped a young Bob Dylan get his start — is now releasing what may be the capstone to his career. “The Adobe Sessions” is a loose jam session recorded with his family. It features some of Vee’s favorite songs from Townes Van Zandt, Gordon Lightfoot and Ricky Nelson. “There’s some songs I liked,” Vee told The Associated Press on a recent sunny winter day while at Rockhouse Productions, his and his sons’ recording studio in Minnesota. “I wanted to do some more music.” The album is set for release on Feb. 3, the 55th anniversary of the plane crash that killed rock ‘n’ roll pioneers Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J.P. “The Big Bopper” Richardson. The tragedy also launched Vee’s career. That night, as a 15-yearold named Robert Velline from Fargo, N.D., he stepped on stage at the Moorhead National Guard Armory to take Holly’s place. Within months the young singer and his band, The Shadows, which included his older brother Bill on lead guitar, recorded Vee’s “Suzie Baby” for Soma Records in Minneapolis. It was a regional hit, and Vee soon signed with Liberty Records. He went on to record 38 Top 100 hits from 1959 to 1970, hitting the top of the charts in 1961 with the Carole King-Gerry Goffin song “Take Care Good of My Baby” and reaching No. 2 with the follow-up, “Run to Him.” “I always wanted him to do well. He became like a little brother to me,” said producer Snuff Garrett, 75, who produced Vee’s early Liberty hits and went on to produce hits for Gary Lewis and the Playboys and Cher. “I thought I did good when I picked him up.” Vee kept recording into the 2000s. But a few years ago, while in England, he felt something strange. He said he couldn’t really

The album is set for release on Monday, the 55th anniversary of the plane crash that killed rock ‘n’ roll pioneers Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J.P. “The Big Bopper” Richardson.

Then in 2011, doctors diagnosed him with Alzheimer’s disease, a degenerative and incurable brain disorder that currently afflicts more than 5 million Americans, according to the Alzheimer’s Association. “The primary way it’s affected us is just pure sadness,” said Vee’s wife of 50 years, Karen. “Because he brings so much joy and music and fun.” Vee performed his last show that same year, billed as his retirement, during a community fundraiser that his family holds near their home in St. Joseph, about 65 miles northwest of Minneapolis. The annual event draws thousands of fans. But he didn’t announce his diagnosis until a year later on his website. Vee said he knew his abilities were diminishing and he didn’t want to put his family through a public decline. “It’s not getting any better, I can tell you that,” Vee said. “But I’m doing the best I can.” Family members said his memory hasn’t been affected so much as his speech. Vee gamely answers questions but becomes tongue-tied as he searches for the right word. But he is still a skilled rhythm guitarist. During his interview with AP, he broke into an impromptu jam session with his sons Jeff, 49, on drums and Tommy, 47, on upright bass. Vee has tried unconventional methods to alleviate his Alzheimer’s symptoms, from chiropractor visits to acupuncture, without success. He does daily exercises and speech therapy and has renewed his passion for painting. And of course, there is music.

Vee and his family didn’t plan to make an album when they set up drums and amps in Vee’s adobe garage north of Tucson, Ariz., after his diagnosis in 2011. They just wanted to make music. “Our mantra from that point forward has been, ‘Don’t turn down any parties.’ We’re going to make every day as good a day as it can be,” Jeff Vee said. His father described recording again as “a feelgood kind of thing.” For the 18-track album, Vee chose songs he would sing on family campouts while strumming a guitar: “Save the Last Dance for Me,” Gordon Lightfoot’s “Walls” and Townes Van Zandt’s “If I Needed You.” His three sons helped — Jeff on drums, Tommy on bass and Robby, a guitarist — and daughter Jennifer added some lyrics. The album also includes Vee’s cover of Bob Dylan’s “The Man in Me,” a nod to the folk-rock legend who got his start in Vee’s band in Fargo. Dylan grew up in Hibbing on northern Minnesota’s Iron Range. He was going by the name Elston Gunn when he hammered on the piano at a couple of The Shadows’ gigs. It also was Dylan who suggested Bobby Vee change his last name from Velline to Vee. And he didn’t forget his old bandmate. In his “Chronicles: Volume One” memoir, Dylan says Vee “had a metallic, edgy tone to his voice and it was as musical as a silver bell.” When Dylan performed in St. Paul last summer, he saluted Vee in the audience and performed “Suzie Baby.” Vee said he hopes that being open about his disease helps others coping with the same fate. Sometimes, he acknowledges, he wishes he could do the things that once came easily. “But I’m not going to cry about it,” he said. “God brought me home. And that’s the deal.”

Why brides need to have a wedding planner For the Daily Corinthian

Planning a wedding is often both fun and frustrating. While planning a party for friends and family can be fun, couples can easily be overwhelmed by the nuts and bolts of planning such a significant event. Interviewing vendors, negotiating prices and arranging for accommodations are just a few of the many tasks couples must complete before they can finally relax and tie the knot. The sheer volume of decisions couples must make when planning a wedding is one reason many men and women seek the services of wedding planners. The following are some

additional reasons couples might want to ease their burdens and hire wedding planners as they get ready for their big day. • Planners are familiar with vendors. Wedding planners work for couples, and while planners often recommend certain vendors, they typically work with whomever the couples ultimately choose. As a result, veteran wedding planners tend to have worked with every florist, caterer, deejay, and venue in their areas. That makes them an invaluable resource to couples who don’t know where to begin as they start planning their weddings. Wedding planners can

save couples time by suggesting couples avoid certain vendors, whether it’s because those vendors have poor service records or they simply don’t fit into a couple’s budget. Wedding planners also can make recommendations based on what couples want. For example, wedding planners may know which deejays are best for more raucous receptions and which ones are best suited for couples who want a more formal affair. • Planners know pricing. Wedding vendors often leave room for negotiation when making proposals to prospective customers. Seasoned wedding planners will know the going

rates for various services, helping couples get the best rates possible and doing so with minimal effort. In addition, planners might be able to negotiate directly with vendors they have worked with in the past, removing one of the biggest stressors of planning a wedding, the negotiation process, from the list of responsibilities couples must handle before tying the knot. • Planners remember the small details you’re likely to forget. Many couples who have large weddings are getting married for the first time, and there are bound to be details they overlook along the way. Seasoned wedding plan-

ners are far less likely to overlook even the tiniest of details, helping couples rest easy knowing that no stone has gone unturned as their big days draw closer and closer. • Planners keep you on course. The longer a couple’s engagement, the easier it becomes to put certain decisions off. But as the wedding day draws nearer, that procrastination often turns into panic, as couples realize their options dwindling and decisions need to be made as soon as possible. Wedding planners hired shortly after a couple gets engaged will be there to ensure couples stay on track, making decisions

as needed and not putting important decisions off until the last minute. • Planners make the wedding day less stressful. Despite all the planning and preparation that goes into their weddings, couples often find their wedding days to be whirlwind days that seem to fly by. Small problems on a couple’s wedding day have a tendency to be magnified, but a seasoned wedding planner can address such issues before the couple is even aware they existed. This makes the day much more enjoyable for the bride and groom and their investment in a wedding planner that much more worthwhile.

Another great idea: Do-it-yourself wedding can save money For the Daily Corinthian

Those thinking about tying the knot in the months to come may be discouraged by how expensive weddings can be. But with a little ingenuity and a hands-on approach, couples can have a wedding that is inexpensive and memorable at the same time. According to CostofWedding.com, on average, U.S. couples spend $26,542 for their weddings. These amounts do not include the cost for an engagement ring or wedding bands. With such a high price tag, some couples may wonder if they can afford their dream wedding or if there are ways to cut costs. Having a backyard, DIY wedding can be the answer. Although some may envision a backyard wedding with picnic benches and Dad at the grill, it

can be a much classier affair than that. Smart couples are realizing that the money they would normally spend on a big wedding at an outside venue can be put to better use, either through buying a new home or fixing up one they may already own. Furthermore, for couples who are picky about details, having a DIY event ensures that they can control the details and have them as personal as they would like.

start making lists of all the things you will need: • location • tables and chairs • linens • food • silverware and glassware • invitations • photography • music • officiant • music • centerpieces and other decor • cake or dessert • lighting • attire • flowers

Getting Started A DIY wedding is one that will take much more work than simply hiring vendors and leaving the details to them. But the money saved with sweat equity can be substantial. A well-planned wedding is the best start. Grab a notebook and

Work in Advance Many items necessary for a wedding can be bought in advance. Some couples find that purchasing low-cost items at discount stores turns out to be less expensive than renting. For example, inexpensive glasses and

When all your dreams come true, I can help find the perfect home for you

silverware can be bought at dollar stores or chains like Ikea. Later on these items can be kept, sold or even donated to shelters. Tablecloths don’t have to be the traditional kind. It may be less expensive to purchase pieces of fabric from a fabric store and dressing them up oneself. Candles can be stockpiled relatively easy and provide a very affordable means of ambient light. Plan out centerpiece ideas and figure out which components can be bought and stored. Then items can be assembled at leisure. Wedding stationery is one thing that will have to be bought well in advance so there will be time enough to printout savethe-dates, invitations and response cards, as well as mail them. An informal wedding may mean couples can

get simple attire. Buying off the rack may mean a smaller price tag for gowns. Gentleman may be able to fare with sportcoats and slacks. Purchase wardrobe essentials several months in advance to be sure there will be time for alterations, if necessary. Enlist the help of family and friends to get many of the tasks completed. Upon asking, many couples find there are members of the family who have skills in certain areas, which can be tapped for the wedding. There may be a gourmet chef, a disc jockey, a photographer or even someone who can officiate the vows. Having these people on board means a great reduction in costs.

Readying the Venue

be doing the work themselves, it’s best to start several days in advance of the wedding (weather permitting). Be sure the grounds are well groomed and landscaped. Ensure there are no tripping hazards and that there is a sturdy surface for placing tables or creating a dance floor. It may pay to ask an electrician or someone who dabbles in electric work to help string some lights to better illuminate the area, especially for when the sun goes down. Set up the tables and chairs to finalize placement the day before. Figure out where the ceremony will take place. A small arbor can mark the area and make a nice photo backdrop. Dress the tables with linens and settings the morning of

Explore unique cake flavor combinations For the Daily Corinthian

A wedding cake is the piece de resistance of the wedding ceremony. Guests anxiously await the unveiling of the cake near the end of the festivities. Modern cakes are showpieces grander in scale than in years past. As bakers and confectioners hone their skills with fondant, buttercream and gum paste even further, the results are often impressive, awe-inspiring cake designs. While the look of a wedding cake is certainly important, cakes should not only look good, but taste good as well. Vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream frosting was once the gold standard. But today’s couples are being more adventurous with their wedding cakes and winning rave reviews from guests along the way. The vast scope of wedding cake flavor choices available to brides and grooms is astonishing. Options may range from the traditional to something adventurous and daring. Keeping in mind that couples will need to please the masses, finding a compromise between plain vanilla and a mocha-chile-coconut surprise is essential. Otherwise, they risk an unpopular flavor and a lot of wasted, expensive cake. Some couples shy away from more adventurous cakes because they fear something chocolately or not white in color will not be well suited to a wedding reception. Such couples should keep in mind that any flavor of cake can be hidden beneath layers of pearly white fondant or royal icing. Therefore, the sky is the limit with regard to flavor combinations. Those who might want to veer from tradition can consider these clever cake combinations. • Lemon cake with vanilla buttercream: Lemons are tart, juicy and refreshing, helping to cleanse the palate after a rich meal. Lemon cake, with its summery feel, is tailor-made for summer weddings. The flavor is popular enough to appeal to many, but just a little differ-

Chocolate can be sweet and satisfying and a welcome change from the vanilla cakes commonly served. For traditionalists, the cake can be covered with a white chocolate ganache. Or couples can ask that the cake be adorned with white sugar roses for an eye-appealing contrast. Chocolate cakes covered with autumn

hued flowers go over well at fall weddings. • Red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting: Red velvet cake was once a regionally specific staple, but now has grown steadily in popularity across the country. Red velvet has quickly become the new classic, as its vibrant red coloring offers a shock of something different, while the flavor is mild for those who are not comfortable taking risks. The richness and creaminess of cream cheese is irresistible. • White cake with chocolate

mousse: Couples who want a bit of chocolate but do not want to be overwhelmed can select a white cake that is filled with light and rich chocolate mousse. It’s the perfect blend of vanilla and chocolate for guests who enjoy both. • Variety tiers: Those who cannot settle on just one flavor can have different flavors on each tier of their cakes. This gives guests some flavorful variety and enables them to pick their favorite flavor combination. Brides- and grooms-to-be

who have specific flavors in mind can ask their bakers to include two cupcakes with the wedding cake. Then the couple can enjoy their own mini cakes while the rest of the guests enjoy a more classic cake. In addition, an assortment of cupcakes in lieu of one cake can give guests the opportunity to sample several different flavors. Cakes are a part of many special events, but few cakes are fawned over as much as wedding cakes. Couples can spice things up by choosing a nontraditional flavor combination.

Roles of the best man and maid of honor For the Daily Corinthian

Being chosen as a best man or a maid of honor is a significant and meaningful honor. Those roles have evolved over the years, but these special participants must still perform some of the traditional duties of the past, including serving as the official witnesses to the ceremony. The following is a rundown of the various duties maids of honor and best men are now expected to handle once they’re chosen for these distinguished honors.

Prior to the wedding Before the wedding takes place, the maid of honor will closely assist the bride-to-be with many of the important decisions related to the look and the feel of the wedding. She typically accompanies the bride to dress shops to select gowns for the bride and bridesmaids. Much in the same manner, the best man will assist the groomto-be with choosing tuxedoes or suits and also with coordinating with the ushers to ensure they know when to go for fittings. Although the best man will serve as a sounding board for the groom, traditionally the bride and her bridesmaids have taken on the majority of the wedding planning, so the maid of honor can expect to play a larger role than the best man. The maid of honor may be asked to delegate certain assignments, such as helping to find wedding vendors or addressing invitations. She may go with the bride for makeup and hairstyle trials. Together with the bridesmaids, she will plan a bridal shower party and a bachelorette excursion. She may select a wedding

gift for the couple and present it on behalf of all the wedding attendants. The best man will coordinate the bachelor party and may be asked to assist the groom with selecting a honeymoon site or to come along to book the trip.

Wedding day On the day of the wedding, the maid of honor and the best man will act as a support system for

The maid of honor will help the bride get dressed and help iron out any miniemergencies that should crop up. The best man will help ensure all of the ushers are dressed and get the groom to the wedding on time. During the ceremony, the maid of honor will

hold the bride’s bouquet while she participates in the wedding. The best man will keep the rings safe until they are needed. The maid of honor also will help adjust the bride’s train and veil as she sits and stands during the ceremony. Both will sign the marriage certificate as witnesses.

At the reception, the best man is expected to give a toast and the maid of honor may share some words as well. She also may accompany the bride to the restroom and assist her with managing the gown.

After the wedding The best man will be in

charge of returning the tuxedoes to the rental shop, if necessary. He also may drive the newly married couple to the airport so they can depart on their honeymoon. The maid of honor will assist the bride in changing out of her gown and into her travel clothes. Oftentimes the maid of honor takes the gown to the cleaners in the days following the ceremony so the dress can be preserved.

What would a wedding day be without flowers? For the Daily Corinthian

The beauty and the aroma of fresh-cut flowers can create a welcoming atmosphere and complement the beauty and the style of a wedding wardrobe. Flowers are often the first things that guests see upon arriving for the ceremony, and they may even be something guests take home at the end of the night. Flowers create an air of romance, and most couples want to make flowers -- whether fresh or silk -- an integral part of their wedding day. As with any decision when planning a wedding, choosing the right flowers requires some research and a basic knowledge of which flowers will convey the message and the theme of your wedding. The number of colors, textures and combinations that can be created are so numerous that couples may feel the decision on the floral arrangements is best left to the florist. But it doesn’t take a lot of expertise to know what you want, and it is important for couples to convey their feelings to the florist. Consider these tips when choosing a florist and selecting flowers. • Experts advise that a couple start looking for a florist at least six months before the wedding, especially if the wedding will take place during the peak season of May through September. Get recommendations from friends as to which florist they used or find out if your wedding planner or banquet hall manager recommends a particular florist. Some catering halls have agreements with florists, and they work together.

• Browse magazines to get ideas of what you like. You also may be able to find a florist through an advertisement or if he or she has been featured in publications. Keep a scrapbook of the colors, types of flowers and arrangements and any other ideas that attract you so you will be able to present this information to the florist. • Establish your flower bud-

get prior to sitting down with the florist. You should expect to pay at least 8 percent of the total wedding cost on flowers. Get an estimate on the floral arrangement and then tweak your needs according to your budget. Many florists can modify arrangements and find a middle ground with regard to cost. Selecting flowers that are in-season will result in more af-

fordable rates than if you desire exotic or out-of-season blooms. • Once you’ve hired the florist, you can come up with a wedding flower worksheet that establishes all of your needs. The florist may ask for specific information, such as photos of the bride’s gown as well as the colors and styles that the wedding party will be wearing. A good florist knows that a bouquet should not overpower or detract from the beauty of the bride. The florist may want to mimic textures from the dress, such as beading, with smaller flowers or berries within the arrangement. The groom’s boutonniere is traditionally one of the flowers from the bride’s bouquet so that the look is cohesive. • Ceremony flowers may be traditional, and some houses of worship have strict guidelines as to what can and cannot be used. However, reception flowers can be where you show off your creativity and whimsy. After all, this is a party and it should be fun. You may want to give the florist more freedom of expression with regard to reception centerpieces and flowers that adorn other areas of the room. • Because receptions tend to take place in the evening hours and are often indoor affairs, experts say that added lighting may be needed to put emphasis on the floral centerpieces and help present them in their best light. You may want to think about hiring a lighting designer to spotlight some areas of the room or at the very least incorporate candlelight into your

centerpiece arrangements. • To give the impression that there are more flowers than there really are, use fragrance and filler as your tools. Fragrant flowers can fill up the room with a welcoming aroma. Look for frangipani, lilies, hyacinths, jasmine, and sweet peas for a big impact. Florists know how to stretch arrangements by using greenery and other filler to lend bulk without too much extra cost. • Experienced florists will know how long it takes certain buds to open and show off their maximum beauty. Therefore, expect a florist to be working on your floral arrangements as much as a week before the wedding date -- purchasing containers, cleaning flowers and waiting for certain ones to open fully. Minimize changes close to your wedding date as most things will already be started. • It is possible to make your own centerpieces or bouquets if you so desire. Simplicity will work best for the novice. Think about grouping similar-hued calla lilies together for a bridal bouquet. Hydrangea and peonies are larger flowers that can easily fill up a vessel on a table as a centerpiece. White flowers will coordinate with any color scheme and could be the easiest to mix and match. White blooms include sweet pea, rose, camellia, stephanotis, narcissus, gardenia, orchid, lily of the valley, jasmine, and gypsophila. Flowers are one component of the wedding that will help achieve the magic and beautiful atmosphere couples desire.

Tips for keeping energy high on your wedding day For the Daily Corinthian

A couple’s wedding day is the culmination of months and months of planning. For most, it is one of the most memorable, magical days of their lives, filled with fond moments of time spent with close friends and family. As enjoyable as a wedding can be, most brides and grooms who have already tied the knot can attest that a wedding is a long, often tiring day. It is very easy for energy levels to wane. To ensure you have enough energy to last through to the final goodbye of the evening, follow these suggestions to remain energized. • Recognize your wedding day is a very long day. It’s possible to rise quite early in the morning to begin prepping with makeup, hair styles, wardrobe and more. If the party is an evening reception, it could last until the wee hours of the morning. You may find yourself up for nearly 24 hours, when the cameras will be flashing and the video rolling throughout. Naturally, you’ll want to look your best throughout. • Get a good night’s sleep the night before. Get to bed early the night before so you will get ample sleep and look rested. It is understandable that nerves and excitement may get the best of you and make it difficult to fall asleep. If you often grow anxious and struggle to fall asleep before big events, talk to your doctor prior to the wedding to ask if you can be prescribed a one-timeonly sleeping pill that will ensure you get to sleep promptly. Do not take this medication with alcohol, and be sure to take it only if you can get a full 7 to 8 hours of sleep. Otherwise you may experience medicine hangover. • Enjoy a hearty breakfast. At breakfast on the morning of your wedding, consume a combination of carbohydrates and protein. The carbs will provide the initial burst of energy you need to get going, and the protein will keep you feeling full. A combination of whole wheat toast, fresh fruit and Greek yogurt makes for a filling start to the day. • Stay hydrated. Although drinking a lot of water can result in more frequent trips to the bathroom -- which can be cumbersome for brides wearing their gowns -- it is essential to stay hydrated. Dehydration can result in headaches, weakness and dizziness and may make you feel cranky. Be sure to consume water throughout the day. • Pack some snacks. The time between breakfast and the cocktail hour of a wedding may be significant. In your wedding “survival” kit, be sure to pack some easy snacks to eat. Trail mix can be nibbled for a boost of energy, and a banana can take the edge off of hunger pangs. Avoid anything messy that can drip onto clothing or get stuck in your teeth. Arrange to have snacks stowed in the limousine or another mode of transportation so that you can refuel on the way to the ceremony or in transit to the reception. • Don’t overdo it with caffeine. It may be tempting to lean on an energy drink or a super-size cup of coffee to give you the boost you need. But caffeine is only a temporary fix. After the effects of

the caffeine wear off, you could find yourself more tired than before and crash at an inopportune time during the day. Instead, a brisk walk outdoors may recharge your batteries. Afterward, time spent on the dance floor enjoying the reception will likely stimulate some adrenaline to keep you going. • Eat dinner. When family is beckoning and the photographer needs to get yet another pose, it is easy to skip dinner. Be firm with your decision to enjoy your meal. After all, you paid for it and it should not go to waste. Besides, sitting down to dinner enables you to rest and absorb the atmosphere of the wedding. • Continue to drink plenty of water throughout the night. Alcoholic beverages may be flowing, but too many spirits can compromise your energy levels. Be sure to balance the booze with hydrating fluids, such as water or juice. Weddings take up the entire day, and it can be easy to succumb to a lack of energy as the day progresses. But by heeding a few tips, it’s possible to remain in top form throughout the entire wedding day.
