Comcast responds to service complaint calls BY JEBB JOHNSTON jjohnston@dailycorinthian.com

Representatives of Comcast cable on Tuesday responded to the city of Corinth’s concerns about service complaints. The Board of Mayor and Aldermen had requested an audience with Comcast after receiving complaints following the cable service’s transition to an all-digital system on Nov. 15. Patricia Collins, senior director of government affairs, said

“I want you to know that we are committed to serving this community, doing right by our customers and making sure that we are providing the best quality of service for every single customer. I also want you to know that we have already addressed and resolved the customer issues that you have brought to our attention.” Patricia Collins Comcast senior director of government affairs Comcast invested $1 million in Corinth as it increased channel and on-demand offerings and boosted top Internet speeds.

“I want you to know that we are committed to serving this community, doing right by our customers and making sure

that we are providing the best quality of service for every single customer,” she said. “I also want you to know that we have

Former employees of ITT in Corinth are invited to the next ITT Breakfast starting at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 14, at Martha’s Menu in downtown Corinth. In its heyday, ITT was one of the biggest employers in the area — with over 3,000 employees at its Corinth facility. Now its past workers have established a tradition of meeting every three months for breakfast at Martha’s Menu in downtown Corinth. “To all of us, it was a family,” said Ginger Dillinger, who regularly attends the breakfasts. Dillinger hopes that more people will join their former co-workers at the ICC Breakfast events. “A lot of people who worked there do not know about these breakfasts,” she said. “I would like to see more ladies come to the breakfast. Out of 3,000 employees, I guess 85 percent were ladies.” Betty Hathcock, 72, worked on a transmitter and receiver line at ITT for 30 years — from 1958 to 1988. She is a regular participant at the ICC Breakfasts. “You get to visit and people get up and share things that happened back then,” Hathcock said. “It’s really interesting and fun to do. It’s just a good thing to get together with old friends and remember all the memories that were made there.” During the breakfasts the former coworkers recognize the ones who passed away since the last meeting three months before. “It’s usually a good many — it was a lot of people that worked there,” Hathcock said.

Raw eggs had to survive CO2 driven vehicle accidents BY STEVE BEAVERS sbeavers@dailycorinthian.com

Corinth students hit the wall on Wednesday. Actually it was their CO2 cars involved in crashes. The students — mostly seniors — were taking part in the project as part of a Physics study. Students had to construct their cars to hold a raw egg and

collide into a wall 24-feet away while traveling 55 mi/hr. The car had to withstand the collision without breaking itself or the egg. The miniature racing cars were rocket-powered by a carbon dioxide cartridge pierced to start the release of the gas. Two hooks linked to fishing line at the bottom of the car prevented the vehicles from losing control when

All students get tree seedling BY BOBBY J. SMITH bjsmith@dailycorinthian.com

In anticipation of Mississippi Arbor Day — designated as the second Friday in February — Toyota has donated tree seedlings to students of all of the state’s public, private and religious schools. Mississippi Forestry Commission personnel delivered the seedlings to all of the schools in Alcorn County on Wednesday. “This is a new thing from Toyota,” explained Mississippi Forestry Commission Service Forester Glen Mynatt, who was part of the team distributing the seedlings to Alcorn County schools. “Our regular annual tree giveaway is still ahead.”

The tree-planting effort is a joint venture of Toyota, the Governor’s office and the Mississippi Forestry Commission. During the November 2011 opening ceremonies for the Toyota plant in Blue Springs, former Gov. Haley Barbour designated Nov. 17 as Toyota Arbor Day — to celebrate the opening of the car manufacturer’s new plant and its commitment to the environment and Mississippi. The state and Toyota created Toyota Arbor Day to offset the loss of trees from the construction of the company’s manufacturing facility. Please see TREES | 3

Agency issues photo IDs BY JEFF YORK For the Daily Corinthian

The Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security announced recently that 12,571 photo IDs had been issued for voting purposes from July 1 through Jan. 30, 2011. The vast majority (11,896) of those issued were nonphoto driver licenses converted into photo driver licenses, while 675 were original photo identification cards. Effective Jan. 1, 2012, a new state law requires citizens to present a federal or state-issued photo ID to vote at the polls. The law also requires the

Department of Safety and Homeland Security to issue photo IDs for voting purposes at no charge. “We will only offer Saturday hours for the selected driver service centers twice more before the presidential primary in March,” Department of Safety and Homeland Security Commissioner Bill Gibbons said. “Citizens who need a photo ID for voting purposes are encouraged to utilize this special service, as well as our participating county clerk partners during the week.” The centers will be open normal business hours,

from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. To minimize the possibility of wait times, groups or organizations planning to make a group visit to a driver service center should schedule an appointment by calling Linda Cone at 731-2250924 or Wanda Adams at 615-251-5300. (For more information on the new voter photo ID law, including acceptable forms of photo identification and documents needed to obtain a photo ID for voting purposes, visit the Department of Safety and Homeland Security’s website at www. tn.gov/safety.)

Quit smoking for love this month There’s plenty of help available to kick the habit For the Daily Corinthian

Wondering what to give your Valentine this February? How about a promise to stay healthy and strong? If you’re a smoker, quitting would be the best gift this Valentine’s Day, according to Emily J. McGrath, director of the Mississippi TobaccoFree Coalition of Alcorn & Tippah Counties. Mississippi ranks number one in heart disease deaths. Every year in Mississippi, smoking accounts for an estimated 5,250 premature deaths. Smok-

ing can lead to sudden heart attacks or strokes, and can be a contributing factor in coronary artery disease. Smoking actually causes coronary heart disease, the leading cause of death in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). “There is plenty of help available for Mississippians who want to quit smoking,” said McGrath. “If you want to quit smoking, contact the Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) Quitline at

1-800-QUIT-NOW to receive free counseling and medications, such as a nicotine patch or gum. “February is American Heart Month,” said McGrath. “This is a great time for people to take the opportunity to protect themselves and their loved ones by quitting smoking.” (For more information on how you can quit smoking, contact the Tobacco-Free Coalition of Alcorn & Tippah County at 662-284-8317. You may also contact the MSDH Quitline at 1-800-784-8669 or visit www.quitlinems.com.)

pounds. Stennett Smith and Priestley Worsham went with the Eli Manning design for their entry. The pair made Eli out of a Dr

Pepper can, cotton balls and duct tape. It was painted blue with Manning’s signature number 10 on the side along with Giants. “We are the team to beat today,” boasted Wor-

sham after the car raced into the wall at a fast pace without breaking the egg. A total of nine cars took the crash test in efforts to demonstrate the mechanical principles such as mass, force, acceleration

and aerodynamics. “We were dreading the project and offered money to someone to do ours,” said Worsham with a laugh. “It turned out to not be as difficult as we thought

it would be,” added Smith. Cars of all shorts and colors were scheduled to take part in the experiment that ends today. The Pink Panther, The Black Hornet, Nash Car, A+ or Bust, Gladiator, and

even one that used a cast to hold the egg were just some of the cars tested. “The project was for a test grade,” said Nash. “They will be graded on such things as quality, creativity and appearance.”

have brought to our attention.” With the transition now almost three months past, service call volumes are returning to normal levels. Numerous customers reported trouble getting their service running with new digital boxes which became a requirement to

continue receiving service. Collins said 95 percent of television customers already had a digital box on their primary television, and it was the secondary sets that needed boxes. “To be prepared for this response, we kept our local office open late, and we placed more people on call to handle the additional volume,” said Collins.

Comcast distributed more than 8,000 boxes. “The majority of the calls we have taken were because customers did not have a digital box or an outside cable drop needed to be replaced or there was an issue with the digital box,” she said. Street Commissioner Jim Bynum said he called four different times re-

Collins acknowledged Comcast “had some challenges” but said the new technology will be better for customers in the long run. Don Richey, general manager for Comcast systems in the region, said the best bet for any customers who still have issues is to report them at the office on Cass Street rather than calling customer service. He said Comcast is working to improve service. “We track now the number of times a technician has a repeat call,” he said. “We track the number of times an installer

ported they were told by Comcast employees that the city made them pay more on the franchise fee. “Last year there was an audit performed of the franchise fee that comes to the city,” he said, “and it was found that there was an underpayment of that franchise fee from Comcast to the city … I want it to be clear that it was a franchise agreement signed 24 or 25 years ago that was in place.” Collins said the franchise fee issue resulted from “a difference in interpretation.” “To work with the city, we did agree to pay the audit findings,” she said. “However, that was a passthrough to the customer.” Comcast agreed to pay $51,632.71 for the years 2007 through 2009.

Hard workers, close-knit family Ginger Dillinger, now 58, was “one of the youngsters” when ITT was at its peak: Most of the women worked out in the plant. I was one of them. We would work very hard, but everyone cared about the other one and would help at any time. If anyone walked through our factory, they would be amazed and how clean and orderly everything was and how all the ladies looked as if they had an office job the way they were

dressed. We took pride in ourselves and the job we did and were proud to be employed there. It was not all work. Oh, no! We would have baby showers and bridal showers. Celebrating an event or someone’s birthday was never missed. We had a big picnic every year and at Christmas, oh how we loved to celebrate with food and presents. Anyone in need would get a special blessing from the employees with their generosity. Our managers really

seemed to appreciate the hard work we did and would tell us often. Most people were proud to say they worked at ITT. We were a family there. After the big layoffs at the plant, after the sell-out, the people who had worked at ITT were thought of to be the best of the best in work ethics and integrity, and a job was not hard to find, because you would be the first to be picked. It is amazing to see the people now that had “just a factory job” but went on

to get degrees and some of the top jobs after their employment at ITT. The strong bond that was made during our employment there is still going on today — sort of like the people you graduated with. We all know what a dollar is and what hard work is, and we learned that life is not always fair — but “what the heck” — what is? So just carry on and do your best. Life will still go on. That is what we learned from each other. —Ginger Dillinger

BREAKFAST: Corinth facility was part of merger of ITT Corinth, CGE CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

The old ITT facility now is the home of Cortelco. The factory traces its roots to the Kellogg Switchboard and Supply Company, which was founded in 1897 near Chicago, Ill. The Kellogg Switchboard and Supply Company saw great success as one of the pioneers

in the mass production of telecommunications equipment. It became a division of International Telephone and Telegraph (ITT) in 1952. The business name of the company changed several times during the 1960s and 1970s, but the changes had little impact on the day-to-day operations of the Corinth facili-

ty, according to Cortelco’s website. In the 1980s the Corinth facility was part of a merger of ITT Corporation and CGE, which transferred the ownership to the newly-formed Alcatel and resulted in the new name. “Cortelco” is an acronym for Corinth Telecommunications Corporation.

No matter what name the company was known by, its former employees enjoy spending time together and sharing their workplace experiences. “We get together and talk and laugh and it’s a really good time,” said Hathcock. For more information contact Ginger Dillinger at 662-808-5050.

Legislators examine education approaches Proposals to consolidate school districts get a lot of political talk, but when it comes to actually doing it, elected officials usually run and hide. School consolidation is politically tricky and can set off firestorms of controversy in local communities. Everything from race to sports to historic community rivalries come into play. But consolidation and the equally controversial “school choice” ideas got limited nods recently from Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves and state Superintendent of Education Tom Burnham. A lot of hot rhetoric has surrounded the issue. Some may see it as irony that Reeves is bringing it up after using the consolidation issue against his opponent last summer in the Republican primary. Reeves said, however, that he supports a specific consolidation plan that would combine the three school districts in Sunflower County into one. Whatever approach the state ultimately takes for consolidation statewide, this particular plan makes sense. The districts are small — three in one county — and they are not performing. All have been taken over by the state Department of Education for deficiencies. Reeves called for combining them and appointing an superintendent to run them. That clearly would be in the best interest of the taxpayers of the county, but more important for the schoolchildren. The plan had been recommended by a consulting firm, which studied consolidation. Former Gov. Haley Barbour had supported consolidation of some of the state’s 152 districts to save money. He had previously suggested cutting the districts to 100. State Superintendent of Education Tom Burnham told House Education Committee members that he and his staff plan to take to the Board of Education a policy recommendation on granting school choice when accreditation is withdrawn. Again, this limited “choice” plan would be targeted at failing districts. As of November, 13 districts were on probation, the last step before accreditation is withdrawn. Still, fully funding basic programs for K-12 schools under the Mississippi Adequate Education Program on a consistent basis should be the Legislature’s No. 1 priority. So far, that remains an unfulfilled promise to the state’s schoolchildren. — The Clarion-Ledger, Jackson

Finding alternatives to higher education Education reform is always a hot-button issue, but more so in an election year. The topic was front and center of President Obama’s recent State of the Union address. His plans included making higher education more affordable by forcing colleges to hold costs in check or lose federal dollars. Interestingly, his approach assumes something that might just be flawed logic. His assumption is that a traditional college education is not just a privilege for a few, but a prerequisite for all. The fact is that many, many smart young men and women do not find college a good fit, even when money isn’t the issue. A Harvard Graduate School report recently showed America has the highest college dropout rate of any industrialized nation. Alarmingly, despite our nation’s Herculean efforts in the past few years to push college onto everyone, only 40 percent of all 27-yearolds in America attain an associate’s degree or higher. That means 60 percent are stumbling into the job market ill equipped to be productive workers and ever have a shot at realizing the American Dream. Wouldn’t we be smarter to rethink our focus? Other developed nations use programs that provide high school students with career path options to learn marketable skills that do not require college degrees. Education is important, but creating wellequipped Americans to help build our country and their own livelihoods may be more important. — The Natchez Democrat

Prayer for today Almighty God, how grateful we are that you love us so much that we can find our home in your presence. Here we are; send us to speak and live your truth to the world. Amen.

Even in the most prosperous years of later times, the unemployment rate for black teenage males was some multiple of what it was even in the recession year of 1949. And now it was often double the unemployment rate for white males of the same ages. This was not the first or the last time that liberals did something that made them feel good about themselves, while leaving havoc in their wake, especially among the poor whom they were supposedly helping. For those for whom “racism” is the explanation of all racial differences, let me assure them, from personal experience, that there was not less racism in the 1940s. For those who want to check out the statistics — and I hope that would include Mitt Romney — they can be found detailed on pages 42 to 45 of “Race and

Economics” by Walter Williams. Nor are such consequences of minimum wage laws peculiar to blacks or to the United States. In Western European countries whose social policies liberals consider more “advanced” than our own, including more generous minimum wage laws and other employer-mandated benefits, it has been common in even prosperous years for unemployment rates among young people to be 20 percent or higher. The economic reason is not complicated. When you set minimum wage levels higher than many inexperienced young people are worth, they don’t get hired. It is not rocket science. Milton Friedman explained all this, half a century ago, in his popular little book for non-economists, “Capitalism and Freedom.” So have many other people. If a presidential candidate who calls himself “conservative” has still not heard of these facts, that simply shows that you can call yourself anything you want to.

it comes to issues such as abortion and same-sex marriage. The absence of any editorials in major newspapers critical of the president’s mixing of church and state and the virtual silence of activist groups like the ACLU and People for the American Way testifies to this point. Americans United for the Separation of Church and State criticized the prayer breakfast, but not the misinterpretation of Scripture, though it did say most of the president’s remarks were “election-season boilerplate.” The president claimed Muslims, Jews and even secular sources like Plato also admonish us to have “consideration for others.” True enough, but that isn’t a mandate for government to be our primary keeper so we “shall not want.” The verse the president quoted, in context, differs from the spin he placed on it. True charity has a purpose beyond the satisfaction of physical needs. Its objective is to change hearts so that whatever is making someone poor will help them become less so.

primary work of the church and individuals, not government, which changes no heart and does a poor job of making people self-sustaining. Government should be a last resort. The social gospel is not new to this president. It is largely a creation of 20thcentury Protestants who believed in applying “Christian principles” to rectify society’s problems. Deeds quickly supplanted faith, evolving into a “works salvation” theology, which says if you do enough good works, God will be pleased and let you into Heaven. This contradicts biblical teaching that it is by faith and not works that one is saved from judgment (Ephesians 2:8-9). Some verses teach works as an extension of faith, revealing its depth and seriousness, but they equally teach that works without faith in Jesus is not enough. This is traditional Christian theology. Accept it, or not, but the president is mistaken when he interprets Scripture to achieve his political goals. Readers may e-mail Cal Thomas at tmseditors@tribune.com.

State Pardons showdown represents high stakes BY HOLBROOK MOHR Associated Press

JACKSON — A month after former Gov. Haley Barbour ended two terms in office by pardoning nearly 200 people including convicted killers, Mississippi’s highest court will take up the issue of whether those pardons complied with the letter of the law. After weeks of namecalling, court filings and political posturing, the state Supreme Court will hear arguments in the case Thursday. The freedom of 10 current and former inmates, including four convicted killers who served as trusties at the Governor’s Mansion when Barbour served, is in jeopardy. Meanwhile dozens of former inmates who hope to have their records wiped clean and regain basic rights could watch their chances slip away. Depending on the Supreme Court’s ruling, some crime victims and their families may sleep better knowing convicted killers will stay behind bars. Or victims such as Randy Walker will have to learn to live with the fact that the man who shot him in the head and killed

his friend is as free as he. The implications, legal and otherwise, are more extensive. A handful of pardon recipients being kept in custody amid the legal battle could sue for wrongful detention if the court rules the pardons were valid, according to lawyers. There are also political reputations at stake. Attorney General Jim Hood is in his third term and the only Democrat to hold statewide office in a state run by Republicans. He has rebuked Barbour publicly for the pardons, and told Mississippians he would rectify the situation. Barbour, a Republican with national standing, said Hood is playing partisan politics. Hood contends that if the people who received pardons from Barbour didn’t run ads in daily papers every day for 30 days, or weekly newspapers once a week for five weeks, the pardons are invalid under the state constitution. Legal experts say it’s not that simple and the justices will look at the nuances. “Whichever way it goes, I’ve done my job,” Hood said. Barbour has said he’s

at peace with the pardons because his Christian faith teaches about redemption. “I believe in second chances and I try hard to be forgiving,” Barbour said. Legal experts say all states have some sort of pardon or clemency for people who violated state law. The U.S. president can pardon people charged under federal law. In Mississippi, the governor has ultimate authority to pardon, commute or suspend sentences. That’s not the case in every state. In neighboring Louisiana, for example, under the Constitution ratified in 1975, the governor has no authority to grant clemency without first getting a favorable recommendation from the Pardon Board. Mississippi’s custom of using convicted killers and others serving long sentences as workers at the Governor’s Mansion is somewhat unusual. For decades, it was the custom of governors to grant those workers some type of early release. New Gov. Phil Bryant, however, has stopped the program. As for the hearing

Thursday, the Supreme Court has set aside one hour for each side to argue its case. Matt Steffey, a constitutional law professor at Mississippi College in Clinton, believes Hood may lose his challenge because “the notification requirement is technical at best and trivial at worst.” He said the language about the 30-day notification was added to the state Constitution in 1890, and there’s no accompanying legislation. “Absent legislation giving meaning to this provision, the governor’s interpretations and actions are presumptively binding,” Steffey said. “In the absence of a statute, there is a serious question about whether this notification clause is enforceable.” Steffey said he understands why crime victims are angry at Barbour, but he said the reaction of some public officials has been disappointing. In at least one interview, Hood referred to Barbour as “Boss Hog,” the corrupt politician in the “Dukes of Hazzard” comedy TV show and movie. Steffey said such rhetoric tarnishes the office of the state’s top prosecutor.

“It seems a little unseemly that Mr. Hood expresses surprise about the maneuverings of ‘Boss Hog’ when the attorney general’s office was involved in the notifications in at least some way,” he said. Hood has said his attorneys’ advice about the pardons has been mischaracterized by Barbour and the lawyer representing four pardoned men, including three convicted killers, who were trusties at the Governor’s Mansion. For some crime victims and their families, the emotional toll is crushing. Just ask the victims of David Gatlin. Gatlin shot and killed his estranged wife, Tammy Ellis Gatlin, as she held their young child. Then he shot her longtime friend, Randy Walker. He survived. Gatlin was sentenced to life in prison in 1993. He eventually became a trusty at the Governor’s Mansion and was pardoned. Walker’s mother, Glenda Walker, said Gatlin should still be in prison. “I watch my son drip from the side of his face when he eats because of the bullet that went

through his head,” she said. “This is messing with our hearts, with our emotions.” Randy Walker said the Supreme Court should revoke the pardons. “It says in black and white that they have to publish for 30 days,” Walker said. “If that doesn’t matter, then obviously there are other things in the Constitution that don’t matter. So I want someone to explain to me what does matter and what doesn’t matter, and if there’s stuff in the Constitution that doesn’t matter, then let’s get it out.”

Buy wife flowers, take her to dinner Associated Press

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — A spat over forgetting to wish his wife a happy birthday landed a South Florida man in jail on domestic violence charges. When Judge “Jay” Hurley heard the cir-

cumstances that brought 47-year-old Joseph Bray to bond court Tuesday, he issued a unique ruling. Hurley ordered Bray to buy a birthday card and flowers for his wife before taking her to dinner at Red Lobster and bowling afterward. Hurley ruled

the couple should begin seeing a marriage counselor immediately. The South Florida Sun Sentinel reports Hurley felt this was a “better resolution” since the incident was minor and Bray had no prior arrests.

GOP leaders vow to reverse Obama birth control policy economy. Abortion, contraception and any of the requirements of Obama’s health care overhaul law have the potential to galvanize the Republicans’ conservative base, critical to voter turnout in the presidential and congressional races. Clearly sensing a political opening, Republicans ramped up the criticism. Shortly after Boehner spoke, GOP senators gathered on the other side of the Capitol to hammer the administration and insist that they will push ahead with legislation to undo the requirement. Sen. Kelly Ayotte, RN.H., called the new rule “an unprecedented affront to religious liberty. This is not a women’s rights issue. This is a religious liberty issue.” The issue is not contraception, said Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., but “whether the government of the United States should have the power to go in and tell a faith-based organization that they have to pay for something that they teach their members shouldn’t be done. It’s that simple. And if the answer is yes, then this government can reach all kinds of other absurd results.” Several Senate Democrats said they would challenge any effort to reverse the policy. Sen. Barbara Boxer, DCalif., pointed out that for about 15 percent of women, birth control pills are used to treat endometriosis and other conditions. “It’s medicine and women deserve their medicine,” she said. The White House, facing a public and political outcry, engaged in damage control, circulating letters and statements from outside groups defending its position. Administration officials had signaled on Tuesday

BY DONNA CASSATA Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Republicans vowed Wednesday to reverse President Barack Obama’s new policy on birth control, lambasting the rule that religious schools and hospitals provide employees with free contraceptives as an “unambiguous attack on religious freedom in our country.” The White House pushed back in the face of a political firestorm, arguing that Obama was sensitive to the objections and looking for a way to allay the concerns. Democratic women lawmakers put up a united front in defending the administration. “Women’s health care should not depend on who the boss is,” said Illinois Rep. Jan Schakowsky. The fight over the administration mandate escalated as House Speaker John Boehner accused the administration of violating First Amendment rights and undermining some of the country’s most vital institutions, such as Catholic charities, schools and hospitals. He demanded that Obama rescind the policy or else Congress will. “This attack by the federal government on religious freedom in our country cannot stand, and will not stand,” Boehner, a Catholic and Ohio Republican, said in a floor speech rare for the speaker. The contentious issue has roiled the presidential race and angered religious groups, especially Catholics, who say the requirement would force them to violate church teachings and long-held beliefs against contraception. It also has pushed social issues to the forefront in an election year that has been dominated by the

Paul admonished the Corinthians, “Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith ; prove your own selves... “(2 Cor 13:5). Teachers in the field of education, give tests to see whether students have mastered the materials taught. The Lord has Christians on the honor system to examine ourselves to see whether we are in ‘’the faith”. It must be possible to know whether we are in the faith or Paul would not have given the Corinthians this admonition. The expression ‘’the faith” appears forty-three times in the New Testament and refers to the only faith taught in the New Testament. Paul referred to the one faith when writing to the Ephesians. “One Lord, one faith, one baptism” (Eph 4:5). All who believe the Bible to be inspired of God should be willing to accept what the Bible teaches on any and all subjects. There is a way to determine whether one is in “the faith”. We live under a system of faith that is produced by the word of God. “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Rom 10: 17). When we obey the word of God, we are in ‘’the faith”. When we reject or refuse to accept what the Bible teaches, we are not in ‘’the faith”. Therefore, we must examine ourselves by comparing what we believe and do by what the Bible teaches. Paul reveals that all spiritual blessings are in Christ. “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ (Eph 1:3). Since all spiritual blessing are in Christ, we need to know how to get into Christ where all spiritual blessings are. Paul tells how we get into Christ in Romans 6:3, “Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death”? Those who have been baptized into Christ and into his death have access to all spiritual blessings and are in Christ and are also in “the faith”. It is necessary for one to become a Christian to be in “the faith” and continue to obey the word of God to continue in “the faith”. “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils” (1 Tim 4:1). When we do what the Bible teaches, are we in “the faith”?

that a compromise was possible and made clear Wednesday it was still looking for a way to deal with the issue. “The president is committed, as I’ve tried to make clear, to ensuring that this policy is implemented so that all American women have access to the same level of health care coverage and doing that in a way that hopefully allays some of the concerns that have been expressed,” said White House spokesman Jay Carney, who added, “We’re focused on trying to get the policy implementation done in the right way.” Options could include granting leeway for a church-affiliated employer not to cover birth control, provided it referred employees to an insurer who would provide the coverage. Another idea, previously rejected by the administration, calls for broadening the definition of a religious employer that would be exempt from the mandate beyond houses of worship and institutions whose primary purpose is to spread the faith. That broader approach would track a definition currently used by the IRS, bringing in schools, hospitals and social service agencies that deal with the general public. Republican White House hopefuls Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich have been relentless in assailing the administration, criticizing the president at campaign stops. Romney has accused Obama of an “assault on religion” and Gingrich called the rule an “attack on the Catholic Church.” But Romney has drawn criticism from his GOP rivals and the White House over policies when he was Massachusetts governor.

House approves line-item veto for president BY JIM ABRAMS Associated Press

WASHINGTON — House Republicans put aside their usual antipathy toward President Barack Obama on Wednesday to give the president, and his successors, the line-item veto, a constitutionally questionable power over the purse that long has been sought by presidents of both parties. A minority of Democrats joined in casting a 254-173 vote in favor of allowing the president to pick out specific items in spending bills for elimination. Currently, the chief executive must sign or veto spending bills in their entirety. The main opposition came from members of the Appropriations Committee, which is responsible for putting together the annual spending bills. They argued that the bill upsets the constitutional separation of powers balance in favor of the executive branch, and that recent efforts to curtail socalled earmarks in spending bills make the lineitem veto unnecessary. The bill now goes to the Senate, where its prospects are uncertain. In 1996, a Republicancontrolled Congress succeeded in giving line-item veto authority to another Democratic president, Bill Clinton. He exercised that authority 82 times, and although Congress overrode his veto in 38 instances, the moves saved the government almost $2 billion. But in 1998, on a 6-3 vote, the Supreme Court ruled that the law was unconstitutional, saying it violated the principle that Congress, and not the executive branch, holds the power of the purse.

Profit momentum at Pepsi? PepsiCo has been able to offset higher costs for ingredient costs and the effects of a shaky economy by raising prices and expanding overseas. Profits for the maker of Mountain Dew soda, Gatorade drinks and Lay's potato chips rose 4 percent to $2 billion in the third quarter. One problem area was Europe, where the slowing economy hurt revenue. Look for a similar performance when Pepsi releases fourth-quarter results today.

STARKVILLE — Mississippi State has a starting five that looks capable of a deep run into the NCAA Tournament come March. The bench? Not so much. With the grind of Southeastern Conference taking its toll on a talented but thin roster, coach Rick Stansbury is desperately searching for anybody capable of giving quality minutes as the 20thranked Bulldogs (18-5, 5-3 SEC) prepare to host Mississippi (14-8, 4-4) on Thursday night. That’s why sophomore Shaun Smith’s brief burst in Saturday’s win over Auburn was so encouraging. The 6-foot-6 guard has been stuck on the bench for most of his two seasons, bothered by hip and wrist inju-

ries, but he scored five points and grabbed a rebound in seven minutes against the Tigers. The production came at key moments — a 3-pointer when the game was tight in the first half and a pair of free throws in the final seconds as the Bulldogs sealed the win. “There’s no reason he can’t do that against everybody,” Stansbury said. “And if he hadn’t of been hurt I think we’d be way beyond that point, but just because of his situation that’s where we’re at right now.” Mississippi State has been limited to basically a sevenman rotation the past few games since backup point guard DeVille Smith was sidelined indefinitely with what Stansbury called headaches and dizziness. Stansbury hopes Smith can return

to the lineup soon, but no date has been set. That’s meant an even heavier load for the starters. Dee Bost, Rodney Hood and Arnett Moultrie rank one, two and three in the SEC in minutes played. All three average more than 34 minutes per game. Smith’s lengthy 6-foot-6 frame is beneficial on both ends of the floor when he’s healthy. He’s slowly worked his way back from injuries the past two months, trying to send a message to Stansbury with improved play during practice. “I’m still here and want to play,” Smith said. Stansbury is more than happy to put him on the floor as long as he contributes. Sophomore guard Jalen Steele said there’s little

doubt Smith has the talent when healthy. “Shaun will help us out on defense,” Steele said. “He’s just got to come out with the focus where he can play, be confident about his game, be confident about his defense, and everything will be good.” Mississippi State is trying to avoid getting swept by rival Ole Miss in the season series for the first time since 1998. The Rebels won the first game 75-68 in Oxford, with Reginald Buckner scoring a career high 19 points and grabbing 15 rebounds. “Offensive rebounding was a factor in that game,” Stansbury said. “We have to play better than we played the last time.” Ole Miss is coming off its Please see BULLDOGS | 9

ATLANTA — Former Falcons kicker Matt Bryant can still remember taking a hit during an elementary school football game. The sky turned yellow and he saw green dots. At 10 or 11, he didn’t recognize the incident as a possible concussion. Now a father of seven children, Bryant is pushing for legislation in Georgia that would help educate young players and their parents, coaches and others about the dangers of concussions and the need to protect student athletes from serious brain injury. “I’ve probably had concussions and didn’t know it,” Bryant told a panel of Georgia House representatives in a hearing Thursday. “The whole education part of this is important.” Lawmakers heard testimony from Bryant and former Falcons linebacker Buddy Curry in support of House Bill 673. The legislation is part of a national push by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and NCAA President Mark Emmert, who are urging 19 governors to support similar proposals across the country. Currently, 31 states already have such laws and another 14 are con-

sidering such legislation, which is modeled after Washington state’s 2009 “Zackery Lystedt Law,” named for a middle school football player who sustained brain damage after he suffered a concussion and returned to play. That law requires that a player who shows signs of a concussion be removed from a game or practice, and bars the player from competing again until being cleared by a licensed health care professional trained in concussion evaluation and management. The language for Georgia’s version of the bill is still being finalized as current and former lawmakers and doctors testified before the House Health and Human Services Committee for more than an hour. Curry, who played for the Falcons from 1980 to 1987 and led the team in tackles for years, told lawmakers that he suffered several concussions during his career. “I can remember coming off the field in a daze, trying to figure out which sideline was my own ... and knowing my team needed me back on the field,” Curry said. One or two plays later, he was putting his helmet back on and leaving the sidelines.

Memphis final piece for coast-to-coast Big East Associated Press

The Big East has acquired all the pieces needed to build a new coast-to-coast conference. Putting them all together, though, is going to take a while. The conference wanted to rebuild itself into a 12team football league that can hold a championship game, and Memphis officially became that 12th member on Wednesday when it accepted an invite it has long coveted. But the new Big East isn’t

scheduled to be fully functional until the 2015 football season. As for the next three years, what the Big East will look like is anybody’s guess. Memphis is the seventh school, and fourth from Conference USA, to sign up since December for future membership in the Big East. The Tigers will compete in the Big East in all sports. “It certainly is an historic day for us,” University of Memphis President Shirley Raines said during a telecon-

ference with Big East Commissioner John Marinatto and Memphis Athletic Director R.C. Johnson. Memphis has been trying to upgrade its conference affiliation for years, and the Big East was always the most likely landing spot. The Tigers were snubbed during the Big East’s last massive expansion in 2005 and lost a longtime rivalry with Louisville in the process. Now with the Big East in need replacements for West

Virginia, Pittsburgh and Syracuse, there was finally room for Memphis. Marinatto called Memphis a “perfect fit.” “There were a number of contributing factors for our membership in making the decision to invite Memphis, including among other reasons its geography in the heart of our future membership makeup, its Central time zone presence, its top-50 Please see MEMPHIS | 9

University sticks with Fighting Sioux nickname Associated Press

BISMARCK, N.D. — The University of North Dakota will resume using its contentious Fighting Sioux nickname despite threats from the NCAA, the school’s president said Wednesday, marking the latest twist in a protracted fight about a name that critics consider offensive. A state law requiring the university to use its longtime nickname and logo, which shows the profile of

an American Indian warrior, was repealed in November. The university has since been trying to retire the moniker, but nickname supporters filed petitions late Tuesday demanding that the issue be put to a statewide vote. University President Robert Kelley said the school decided to resume using the name and logo to respect the state’s referendum process, which requires the pro-nickname law be in effect while the secretary of state reviews

the petition signatures over the next month. “As soon as that petition was filed last night, the law reverts,” Kelley told The Associated Press. “I don’t want to violate the law.” The NCAA has told the university that continued use of the nickname and logo would expose the school to sanctions. The school could not host postseason tournaments, and its athletes could not wear uniforms with the logo or nickname in post-

season play. Emails and phone messages left with the NCAA were not immediately returned Wednesday. The university and leaders in Grand Forks, where the school is located, had opposed the law. Kelley said the men’s and women’s hockey teams and the women’s basketball team have a chance for postseason play in the coming months, and it was unclear how the teams would be affected.

Slive: Changes to BCS at least two years away Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The man who helped propose the plus-one plan to find a national champion in football says actual change remains a couple years away even if everyone can agree on changes to the Bowl Championship Series. Southeastern Conference commissioner Mike Slive said Wednesday a decision could be made later this year but cautioned itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s premature to speculate on what changes might be made. He says they need time to sit down and analyze plans with discussions needed among the conferences. Slive also says they need to look at any change very carefully considering the tradition of bowl games. The Big Ten helped stop the proposal back in 2008 and now is interested in changes. Slive says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gratifying to see others willing to embrace the proposal.

second double-overtime loss of the season, a 69-67 setback to Alabama. The Rebels still have NCAA Tournament hopes, and two wins over the Bulldogs would certainly help their atlarge profile. It wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be easy. Mississippi State has a 12-game home winning streak against all opponents and won 24 of its past 27 home games against Ole Miss. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a handful of possessions away from sitting here at 7-1 (in the SEC),â&#x20AC;? Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you dwell on that, it can drive you crazy. The reality is thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing we can do about the first eight. All we control is the next eight, starting Thursday night. For us, it shows me our attention to detail needs to improve.â&#x20AC;? Kennedy said that starts with improving the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s free-throw percentage and turnover margin, which both rank last in the league. Ole Miss had just five turnovers against Mississippi State in the first meeting, which was easily one of the Rebelsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; best games of the season in that category.

SALT LAKE CITY â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Utah officials on Wednesday announced the formation of an exploratory committee to consider whether the state should pursue a bid for the 2022 Winter Olympic Games. Gov. Gary Herbert made the announcement Wednesday â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the 10th anniversary of the Opening Ceremonies of the 2002 Winter Games in Salt Lake City. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ten years ago Utah â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Lit the Fire Within,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and today that flame still burns bright,â&#x20AC;? Herbert said in a news release. The announcement comes hours before Herbert and a gathering of former Olympians will kick off a series of anniversary events with the re-lighting of the Olympic cauldron on the University of Utah campus. Lt. Gov. Greg Bell and Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker will co-chair the 13-member committee, which includes Steve Price, cochairman of the Utah Sports Commission, and Olympic

USOC is not considering any bids for Olympic Games or Olympic Winter Games,â&#x20AC;? Patrick Sandusky, the USOCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief communications officer said in an email to The Associated Press. Run by 2012 GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, Utahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2002 Games were considered successful, generating $876 million in corporate sponsorships and $100 million in overall profits. But the bidding process for the Utah games was rocked by scandal, with bid leaders accused of securing the games through $1 million in bribes of cash, gifts, medical care and other favors to International Olympic Committee members. Federal prosecutors brought criminal charges against bid leaders Tom Welch and Dave Johnson, but both were acquitted of charges by a judge halfway through a federal trial. Two other men pleaded guilty to tax fraud, tax evasion and conspiracy charges, but were sentenced only to probation and fines.

MARCUS DENMON, MISSOURI Denmon averaged 27 points as Missouri picked up two wins in a three-day period. On Saturday night, the senior scored 29, including the final 11 of the game, as the Tigers rallied for a 74–71 win over Kansas in an epic Border War showdown. Then, on Monday night, he poured in 25 points in Mizzou’s 71–68 win over Oklahoma in Norman.

REGGIE JOHNSON, MIAMI Miami beat Duke for the first time ever at Cameron Indoor Stadium thanks to a huge effort from their 6'10", 284-pound center. Johnson scored a career-high 27 points, including five in overtime, in the Hurricanes’ 78–74 win on Super Bowl Sunday. TRAY WOODALL, PITTSBURGH It’s no surprise that Pitt is playing its best basketball of the season with a healthy Woodall back in the lineup. The senior point guard averaged 26.5 points, 5.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists as Pitt swept games at West Virginia and at home vs. Villanova last week. The Panthers have won four straight after opening the Big East schedule with seven straight losses. PAT CONNAUGHTON, NOTRE DAME Connaughton, a freshman guard who had scored a total of 36 points in Big East play this season, erupted for 23 points (on 5-of-8 from 3-point range) and grabbed a career-high 11 rebounds in the Fighting Irish’s 76–59 win over Marquette in South Bend. JARED SULLINGER, OHIO STATE The Buckeyes’ big man recorded a doubledouble with 24 points and 10 rebounds as Ohio State snapped a nine-game losing streak to Wisconsin in Madison with a 58–52 win at the Kohl Center. CHRIS UDOFIA, DENVER Playing a home game on ESPN for the first time in school history, Denver handed Middle Tennessee its first loss in the Sun Belt, 75–60, thanks to 27 points (a career high), nine rebounds and four blocks from Udofia, a sophomore swingman from Irving, Texas. KENDALL MARSHALL, NORTH CAROLINA North Carolina’s sophomore point guard set a Comcast Center record and tied a career high with 16 assists in the Tar Heels’ 83–74 win at Maryland. Marshall, who added nine points and three rebounds, has had 10 or more assists 10 times this season. ANTHONY JAMES, NORTHERN IOWA James nailed a 3-pointer as time expired to give Northern Iowa a 65–62 win over nationally ranked Creighton. A junior guard, James hit 3-of-4 from beyond the arc for the game and ended up with a team-high 16 points. ANTHONY DAVIS, KENTUCKY Davis did a little bit of everything in Kentucky’s easy 86–52 win over South Carolina in Columbia. The freshman big man had 22 points, eight rebounds and eight blocks to lift Kentucky to its 15th-straight win. JAMYCHAL GREEN, ALABAMA Alabama picked up a much-needed win in SEC play, edging Ole Miss 69–67 in double-overtime. Green, a senior forward, led the Tide with 16 points and 12 rebounds, just his second double-double in league play this season. REGGIE HAMILTON, OAKLAND The nation’s third-leading scorer hit the 40-point mark for the second time this season, leading Oakland to a 74–70 double-overtime win over Western Illinois. A 5'11" senior guard from Chicago, Hamilton hit 13-of-24 from the field, including 9-of-14 from 3-point range en route to his 40-point, four-rebound, four-assist game. DRAYMOND GREEN, MICHIGAN STATE Green bounced back from a badly sprained ankle earlier in the week to score 14 points and grab 16 rebounds in Michigan State’s 64–54 win over Michigan. Green, a native of Saginaw, Mich., had guaranteed the Spartans would snap their three-game losing streak against the Wolverines.

TRUCK BRYANT, WEST VIRGINIA Bryant poured in a season-high 32 points and hit the decisive 3-pointer with just over a second left in overtime to give West Virginia an 87–84 win at Providence. Bryant converted 11of-22 field goals and all five of his free throws.

Anthony Davis could be National Player of the Year. Fab Melo’s return strengthens the Orange front line. Buckeyes break through with a rare win at Wisconsin. Tigers survive in Norman two days after Border War. Jayhawks let one slip away in Columbia. Bears picked up road wins at Texas A&M, O-State. Roy Williams’ club has the pieces to win it all. Spartans end their skid vs. Michigan. Hoyas take care of business at home. When the guards shoot well, Gators can beat anyone. The Seminoles are a legitimate threat to win the ACC. Devils go 0-of-6 from the line in OT vs. Miami. Dogs getting a monster season from Arnett Moultrie. IU breaks through with quality win on the road (Purdue). Rebs haven’t been playing well on the road. Bluejays lose a heartbreaker at Northern Iowa. Wolverines had no answer for Draymond Green. MU falls two games behind Big East-leading Syracuse. Aztecs struggle to beat two bad teams at home. Gaels are solid but lack quality wins. Badgers have lost four games at home. Racers will be tested by Saint Mary’s. Cavs’ ACC title hopes take a big hit with a loss at FSU. Mike Brey is working wonders in South Bend. Clones are playing way into the NCAA Tournament. *Records and rankings are as of Feb. 6

Temple could surprise in March Pick a team that was not in last week's top 25 that you think could possibly make a run to the Final Four. Mitch Light: Temple is undervalued nationally. The Owls improved to 17–5 overall and 6–2 in the A-10 with a 73–56 win at Rhode Island on Saturday. They have wins over Wichita State, Villanova, Maryland and Duke in non-conference action and have emerged as the team to beat in what has become a deep A-10. Fran Dunphy’s club is led by a trio of veteran guards (Ramone Moore, Khalif Wyatt and Juan Fernandez) who played a key role on last year’s NCAA Tournament team. Temple doesn’t get a lot of scoring from its front line but has some big bodies who play well defensively and get after it on the glass. With the right matchups, Temple is capable of winning several games — maybe even four — in the NCAAs.

FRIDAY, FEB. 10 HARVARD AT PENN This figures to be Harvard’s biggest test as it strives for perfection in the Ivy League. The Quakers are 12–10 overall but 4–1 in the conference. SATURDAY, FEB. 11 LOUISVILLE AT WEST VIRGINIA Louisville takes a five-game winning streak into Morgantown to face a West Virginia team that has struggled of late. The Mountaineers will need another big game from Kevin Jones. CONNECTICUT AT SYRACUSE These were supposed to be the two best teams in the Big East. Syracuse has lived up to the hype, but Connecticut has been one of the nation’s most disappointing teams. VIRGINIA AT NORTH CAROLINA The Cavaliers are much-improved, but Tony Bennett’s club lacks the offensive firepower to keep pace with the Tar Heels in Chapel Hill. MIAMI (FLA.) AT FLORIDA STATE It’s a battle between two ACC teams that have won at Duke this season. Florida State cannot afford to lose at home if it plans on staying in the league title chase. BAYLOR AT MISSOURI Missouri out-toughed Baylor in a win in Waco last month. The Bears have to the talent to return the favor, but will Scott Drew’s team show enough fight? KANSAS STATE AT TEXAS Kansas State’s NCAA Tournament résumé is solid, but a win in Austin wouldn’t hurt. The Wildcats are 2–3 on the road in league play. Texas, currently 5–6, needs to get to .500 in the Big 12. CINCINNATI AT MARQUETTE Cincinnati’s once-solid profile is in need of some quality wins. Marquette hit a speed bump in South Bend, but the Golden Eagles have emerged as one of the top teams in the league. TENNESSEE AT FLORIDA Tennessee knocked off Florida in Knoxville — without Jarnell Stokes in the lineup — but the Vols have struggled on the road in league play. CALIFORNIA AT UCLA The Golden Bears are in the thick of the Pac-12 title chase. UCLA’s record isn’t impressive, but the Bruins have some talent, most notably Josh Smith in the middle. TEXAS A&M AT IOWA STATE Iowa State has played its way into the NCAA Tournament picture by protecting its home court. This is a game the Cyclones must win. MARYLAND AT DUKE The Blue Devils have lost two straight ACC games at home — and neither team was named North Carolina. Duke will need another big game from Mason Plumlee, who scored 23 points vs. the Terps in College Park. SAN DIEGO STATE AT UNLV The Aztecs won at the buzzer when these two Mountain West bullies met in San Diego. UNLV will be eager to return the favor. UCF AT SOUTHERN MISS The C-USA-leading Golden Eagles will be tested this week, with a trip to UAB on Wednesday followed by a home date vs. the talented Knights from UCF. WICHITA STATE AT CREIGHTON These two clubs are tied atop the Valley standings. Creighton won the first game, at Wichita State. The rematch will be fun to watch. MICHIGAN STATE AT OHIO STATE The Buckeyes are the clear favorites in the Big Ten, but the Spartans are lurking. Tom Izzo’s club must find a way to limit Jared Sullinger’s touches around the basket. ALABAMA AT LSU Alabama must forge ahead without talented forward Tony Mitchell (indefinite suspension). LSU has been a tough out in Baton Rouge, but this is a game that Alabama needs to win. XAVIER AT TEMPLE The Musketeers blew a 10-point second half lead at Memphis last week. They could really use a good win away from home. KENTUCKY AT VANDERBILT The Commodores have won five of the past six vs. Kentucky in Nashville. The ESPN GameDay crew will be in town for what figures to be one of the top games in the SEC this season. SUNDAY, FEB. 12 ILLINOIS AT MICHIGAN The Illini have been one of the most inconsistent teams in the Big Ten. Michigan has been very good at home, but Illinois is talented enough to win this game. WASHINGTON AT OREGON STATE The surging Huskies are in first place in the Pac-12, but they still need some good wins to pad their NCAA Tournament profile. PITTSBURGH AT SETON HALL Pittsburgh is attempting the improbable climb from 0–7 in the league to the NCAA Tournament. This is a winnable game for the Panthers. NORTHWESTERN AT PURDUE This is a huge bubble game for two teams battling for survival in the Big Ten. Northwestern is 2–5 on the road this season.

Connecticut wants to impose its own penalties Associated Press

HARTFORD, Conn. — The University of Connecticut has proposed reducing the number of games it will play next season if the NCAA grants a waiver to allow the Huskies to play in the 2013 men’s basketball tournament. The school currently would be barred from the NCAA tournament, a penalty for years of belowstandard academic results, but it requested a waiver last month.

That document, obtained this week by The Associated Press under a Freedom of Information request, outlines proposed self-imposed penalties to be instituted if the request is granted. Those include forfeiting the revenue awarded to the Big East for participating in the 2013 tournament, reducing the number of regular-season games played in the 2012-13 season from 27 to 23 and barring coach Jim Calhoun from meeting

off-campus with prospective recruits during the fall 2012 contact period. “Collectively, the university’s proposal will clearly send the message that the institution fully accepts the responsibility for past failings,” the school writes in its waiver request. “It will result in the economic equivalent of a postseason ban without harming the very students the NCAA is trying to protect.” The Big East conference, which would lose rev-

enue under the proposal, declined to comment on whether it supports the proposal. The schedule changes also would include eliminating exhibition games next season, but would not impact the team’s play at the in-season Paradise Jam tournament in the Virgin Islands. So the actual number of games played would be 26 rather than 30. The school said all hours that would have been spent in competition will instead

transfer to study hall, tutor sessions or meetings with advisers. The school said Calhoun will bring a current or former NBA player to innercity schools for at least five educational sessions on the importance of academic achievement. “We believe that we have made a very compelling case to the NCAA and will be deeply disappointed if our request for a waiver from the 2013 men’s basketball postseason ban

is denied,” UConn President Susan Herbst said in a statement. “Our team’s academic performance improved tremendously in 2010-11, and in the fall 2011 semester. We developed a new long-term academic plan for our team, and it has already shown positive results.” A school must have a two-year average score of 930 or a four-year average of 900 on the NCAA’s annual Academic Progress Rate.

BY HOLIDAY MATHIS The transits came fast and furious during Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s full moon. The sun and Mercury aligned to present a technological carnival of wonders. Saturn went retrograde to test our discipline. Venus entered Aries to turn up the passion. And weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still in the cosmic whirl, trying to regain equilibrium. The grounded Virgo moon comes to the rescue. ARIES (March 21-April 19). You think you are explaining yourself well. What you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t account for is the level of distraction that others encounter inside their own heads. Your patience will be required. TAURUS (April 20May 20). Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do all you can to maintain an appealing atmosphere. You wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let anyone encroach on your space, freedom and peace, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll protect those you love from invasion, as well. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Movement is essential to your growth process. As you physically move through your environment, you mentally move through obstacles, troubles, fear and anything else holding you back. CANCER (June 22July 22). The one who catches you off guard also

captures your interest, attention and affection. You may find yourself thinking of this person well into the evening. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Life is like rock climbing. When you know you have a strong measure of security in your connection with the rock, it is easier for you to swing out and savor an adventurous piece of sky. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You have a gift for making people cooperate, even when they think the task at hand is tedious. You help everyone see the benefit to living in an orderly, cheerful and efficient manner. LIBRA (Sept. 23Oct. 23). Anyone whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s achieved greatness knows that a lot of effort, forethought, insight, planning and practice go into turning the ordinary into the extraordinary. SCORPIO (Oct. 24Nov. 21). You can stroke a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ego without doing what the person is asking you to do. You have a clever way of dealing with the one who is notoriously hard to manage. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll wonder at the curious turnarounds of the day. For instance, enjoyment turns out to be more work than working. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re determined to make the best

awarded masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s or specialistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degrees. Degrees were conferred by FHU President Joe Wiley. The universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office of Alumni Relations hosted a reception for graduates and their families following commencement exercises. Renee Holcomb of Iuka received a master of science degree in counseling.

of things, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be in the mood to initiate the action. Small wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t count. Sweeping, grand gestures will go over well, if only because not many people have the guts to make such a strong statement. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18). You love it when an idea comes together, and right now youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working on one that could transform your world. That stated, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the practical moves you make now that will bring you the most satisfaction. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Arguments will shake up the day, and the future will seem uncertain. Your powers of empathy will be tested, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll come through with flying colors. If anyone can find a compromise, you can! TODAYâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 9). You have a killer instinct for business. In the next six weeks, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll make more money for doing the same amount of work. A turn of events in March may be hard to assimilate at first, but ultimately itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what allows your heart to be most fulfilled. You love a mystery, and the one in your own family tree will be riveting this summer. Aries and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 25,

2, 15 and 30. COUNTDOWN TO V-DAY: The Valentines will be flying next Tuesday, and if you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t already figured out how youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to express your heart, you still have enough time to come up with something good. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re an earth sign â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn â&#x20AC;&#x201D; youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be wise to focus on the senses, both yours and your loved oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. You truly have a gift for homing in on just the scent or taste that will most capture the attention and imagination of your love. Of course, your highly tuned eye and your musical ears will also play a part, but none so important as your sense of touch. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the assuring pats, loving nudges and soft caresses that bond you with your loved ones. As you deliver your notes or gifts, remember that the warmth of your hug and kiss will make the difference between a nice gesture and a truly memorable encounter. Ideas for gifts: dinner and music, a night on the town, gourmet food, body lotions and scents, pajamas or sheets.

I feel extremely violated because her hand should not be anywhere near that region. My husband says I misinterpreted what she did, but he has no explanation. I think her behavior was incestuous!

Senate votes to merge 3 Sunflower school districts BY EMILY WAGSTER PETTUS Associated Press

JACKSON — The Mississippi Senate passed a bill Wednesday that would merge Sunflower County’s three school districts into one, easing into the politically sensitive topic of consolidation by focusing on a single area in the impoverished Delta. Mississippi has 152 school districts in 82 counties. Previous proposals for widespread consolidations fizzled amid local resistance from officials who didn’t want to merge high-performing districts with lower-performing ones nearby. The bill passed 43-4 and moves to the House for more work. The senator who represents Sunflower County, Democrat Willie Simmons, did not vote. “I’m torn,” Simmons told his colleagues. Simmons said parents in Sunflower County want their children to receive the best education possible, but many aren’t convinced consolidation will improve the quality of instruction. Sunflower County is in of the poorest parts of the state. Its three school districts — Sunflower County, Indianola and Drew — are all under state conservatorship for a variety of reasons, including low academic performance. A study by a legislative watchdog group shows consolidation of the three Sunflower districts would save state and local taxpayers $1.2 million a year in administrative costs, said Senate Education Chairman Gray Tollison, R-Oxford. Tollison said the local school board could decide whether to spend the savings in the classrooms

or reduce local property taxes. The bill would require a new school board and an appointed superintendent. It does not address whether individual schools would be closed or consolidated. Republican Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves said decisions about keeping or closing schools should be left up to the new local board and superintendent. Consolidation has been discussed for years, but there’s been little political will to force mergers. Many local superintendents are elected and have a wide network of political connections. Some people also worry that consolidating districts will diminish small communities’ identities by causing mergers of schools with longstanding sports rivalries. Former Gov. Haley Barbour, a Republican, said in 2009 that he wanted to reduce the total to 100 districts, but legislators never acted on his proposal. The consolidation bill that passed Wednesday applies only to Sunflower County. During more than an hour of debate, no one attempted to add any other mergers to the bill. However, some lawmakers expressed concerns. Sen. Hob Bryan, DAmory, said he hopes not to be surprised one day by any attempt to force the merger of the Aberdeen and Amory school districts in his home base. Sunflower County had a 16.2 percent unemployment rate in December compared to 9.9 percent for the state and 8.3 percent for the nation. Sen. Kenny Wayne Jones, DCanton, said Sunflower County’s economy could suffer if school administrators lose their jobs.

State Corrections Commissioner Chris Epps (right), Dillworth Ricks, director of victim services (second from right), and Adam Lee, with the state Department of Corrections (left), listen as Roy Curry, the brother of Everett Curry, one of two men killed by death row inmate Edwin Hart Turner, reads a statement. It was on behalf of his family following the execution by lethal injection of Turner on Wednesday at the Mississippi State Penitentiary at Parchman.

Mississippi executes inmate for 1995 killings Associated Press

PARCHMAN — Mississippi inmate Edwin Hart Turner was put to death Wednesday evening for killing two men in a 1995 robbery spree after the courts declined to stop the execution based on arguments that he was mentally ill. Turner, 38, was administered a lethal injection and died at 6:21 p.m. at the Mississippi State Penitentiary at Parchman, authorities said. The inmate was convicted of killing the two men while robbing gas stations with a friend, Paul Murrell Stewart, in a spree that netted about $400. Stewart, 17 at the time, testified against Turner and was sentenced to life in prison. Turner was strapped on a gurney wearing white shoes and one of the red prison jumpsuits issued to death row inmates. When a microphone was lowered to his mouth, he said, “No” when asked if he had a final statement. Then the chemicals

began flowing through tubes into his body. He closed his eyes, took a deep breath and had the appearance of falling asleep. Turner was convicted of capital murder in the deaths of Eddie Brooks and Everett Curry. Brooks was shot to death while working at Mims Turkey Village Truck Stop in Carroll County. Curry was shot to death while pumping gas at the nearby Mims One Stop. The sister and a cousin of victim Eddie Brooks watched the execution. The brother and son of his other victim, Everett Curry, also witnessed it. One of Curry’s other brothers read a statement for the family afterward. “I don’t think we will ever have complete closure because a void will always exist in our hearts,” said Roy Curry, who did not watch the execution. “At least we will have some consolation in knowing that the person who committed this cowardly and senseless act is finally gone.” Turner had requested

that none of his family watch the execution, though his attorney and a pastor were present. There was little dispute that Turner killed two men while robbing gas stations, then went home and had a meal of shrimp and cinnamon rolls before going to sleep before deputies arrived .But his lawyers had tried to block the execution in various state and federal courts based on the argument that he was mentally ill. They had hoped the U.S. Supreme Court would outlaw executions of the mentally ill as it has done with people considered mentally retarded. The nation’s highest court allowed the execution to go forward Wednesday when it rejected petitions to stop it. Earlier in the day, Gov. Phil Bryant had refused to grant a reprieve, saying after a review of the case, “I have decided not to grant clemency for his violent acts.” Turner’s lawyers had argued in the petition to the U.S. Supreme Court that he inherited a seri-

ous mental illness. They argued that his father is thought to have committed suicide by shooting a gun into a shed filled with dynamite and his grandmother and greatgrandmother both spent time in the state mental hospital. Turner’s attorneys say he was severely disfigured during a suicide attempt at 18 by putting a rifle in his mouth and pulling the trigger. He had been released from a mental hospital just weeks before killing the two men, his lawyers said. Turner’s lawyers had objected to the pace of events in the scheduling of the execution. “Execution was set in this case with only 13 days’ notice — a procedure that would be illegal in most other states. Mississippi has created a time crunch and forced both the courts and the Governor to respond to this most serious of cases with inadequate time and consideration,” said Richard Bourke, director of the Louisiana Capital Assistance Center.
