More winter weather on the way BY BRANT SAPPINGTON

Travelers in the Crossroads area encountered few weatherrelated problems Saturday but forecasters warn a more serious blast of winter weather may be

just around the corner. Icy patches were reported on bridges and overpasses across Alcorn County early Saturday and a dusting of snow could be seen clinging to colder surfaces after a brief round of wintry

precipitation passed through the area Friday night into Saturday morning. Alcorn County Emergency Services Director Rickey Gibens said no weather-related crashes had been reported in the coun-

ty and the impact on motorists had been minimal early Saturday. “I think we were fortunate again. I’m still waiting on the big one. So far it’s been all around us,” he said.

The big one, or at least a smaller version of it, could arrive sometime tonight through Tuesday. “There is the potential for Please see WEATHER | 3A

Residents remember ice storm of 1994

A year of liquor


“I could not believe the damage in this town. It was like a bomb had went off,” said Kevin Thomas as he remembered 20 years ago. The morning of Feb. 11, 1994, came early for many North Mississippi residents as they heard popping and cracking sounds outside. The Crossroads was blanketed with ice from what would forever be known as ice storm ‘94. It would be almost three

weeks to the day before power would be restored to all Alcorn County residents. Power crews worked day and night to replace the poles and restring the lines pulled down by the frozen precipitation. Corinth resident Twila Bridges remembers the storm like it was yesterday. “It was like living in another time and place,” said Bridges. “We cooked outside on our gas grill and played board games, because we didn’t have the TV.” Please see STORM | 3A

Liquor sales returned to Corinth on Feb. 8, 2013, as the first package store in the city in 23 years opened for business.

Businesses see success in year since sales returned BY JEBB JOHNSTON

A year ago this weekend, the shelves quickly grew bare at the first store to sell liquor and wine in Corinth in 23 years. A frenzied opening the night before came as a bit of a shock to Corinth Wine & Spirits owners Allan and Kathryn Lee, who never expected the kind of mad

rush that would require someone to work the door, letting in a few people at a time. “We all left there that night and were like, ‘What in the world just happened,’” she recalled. A year later, eight different retailers are doing business in the city, compared to six at the time liquor was voted out in

1989. The first store’s opening came after Corinth voters gave 70 percent approval to liquor sales in a city-only vote made possible by a change in state law. “I think the vote that it passed by was a big part in why Please see LIQUOR | 3A

Corinth resident Sandra Gurley dug out her “I love the power” T-shirt for the 20th anniversary of the storm.

Passion for education drives Jones Third annual conference

shares dangers of tobacco


(This is the first of a four part series on African-Americans in the community.) Frankie Jones came to Corinth in 1951. More than 60 years later, the former teacher still calls the city her home. “I came to Corinth as a teacher and then I met my husband,” said Jones. The former Scale Street and Easom instructor raised eight children of her own – four boys and four girls – along with her husband, Robert “Bobby” Jones

Did you know that there are 7,000 chemical compounds found in cigarette smoke? What about the fact that lung disease from second hand smoke is the number two cause of death in infants? In 2011 alone, tobacco company’s spent a whopping $8.37 billion dollars on advertising. Around 200 students from Belmont, Baldwyn, Alcorn Central, Biggersville, Kossuth and Faulkner learned these frightening facts and more at the

2014 LEAD Conference. The conference was held for the third year at the Crossroads Arena as well as the Corinth MSU Extension Office on Friday. “The purpose is to teach them the facts and dangers of tobacco and how they can advocate and be role modes for the younger kids,” said Emily J.

Today in history Today is Sunday, Feb. 9, the 40th day of 2014. There are 325 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlights in History: On Feb. 9, 1964, The Beatles made their first live American television appearance on “The Ed Sullivan Show,” broadcast from New York on CBS. The G.I. Joe action figure was introduced at the American International Toy Fair in New York.

On this date: In 1825, the House of Representatives elected John Quincy Adams president after no candidate received a majority of electoral votes. In 1861, Jefferson Davis was elected provisional president of the Confederate States of America at a congress held in Montgomery, Ala. In 1870, the U.S. Weather Bureau was established. In 1933, the Oxford Union Society approved, 275-153, a motion “that this House will in no circumstances fight for its King and Country,” a stand that was widely denounced. (On this date in 1983, the Oxford Union Soci-


ety rejected, 416-187, a motion “that this House would not fight for Queen and Country.”) In 1942, the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff held its first formal meeting to coordinate military strategy during World War II. Daylight-saving “War Time” went into effect in the United States, with clocks turned one hour forward. In 1943, the World War II battle of Guadalcanal in the southwest Pacific ended with an Allied victory over Japanese forces. In 1950, in a speech in Wheeling, W.Va., Sen. Joseph McCarthy, R-Wis., charged the State Department was riddled with Communists. In 1963, the Boeing 727 went on its first-ever flight as it took off from Renton, Wash. In 1971, a magnitude 6.6 earthquake in California’s San Fernando Valley claimed 65 lives. The crew of Apollo 14 returned to Earth after man’s third landing on the moon. In 1984, Soviet leader Yuri V. Andropov, 69, died 15 months after succeeding Leonid Brezhnev; he was followed by Konstantin U. Chernenko. In 2002, Britain’s Princess Margaret, sister of Queen Elizabeth II, died in London at age 71.


Greg and Karen Cooley vividly recall the sounds of the falling ice at their home on Willow Street in Corinth. “That sound was so eerie,” he said. In the Midway community of Tishomingo County, Bob and Cindy Nelson were without power for 17 days. Denise Webb-Harrell remembers offering up her home to friends who didn’t have heat. “We had a house with two gas fireplaces and gas hot water heater, so we had a lot of friends staying with us,” she said. “We sat with our kids and played games by candle light.” Webb-Harrell was a teacher at Corinth Junior High School in 1994. “When we went back to school there was so many students that didn’t show up, because they had no heat or electricity at their home,” she said. Saving Abel guitar player Eric Taylor was 11-years-old at the time of the storm. “I believe we were without power in Michie for three weeks,” he said.

“Thank God we had a wood stove.” In downtown Corinth, Bill and Vickie Avery huddled together for warmth. “As I heard tree limbs landing on the roof, I remember thinking, there’s nothing I could do about it,” he said. “It was a scary feeling.” Theresa Cutshall was awoken by what she thought were gun shots outside of her Iuka home. “After looking outside, I was shocked to see so much ice packed on the trees and power lines,” she said. “My daughter and I survived by keeping two fire places burning. We slept on the floor in front of them” After the storm, she remembered almost everyone in her neighborhood had gas heat installed. Daily Corinthian Sports Editor H. Lee Smith II was getting ready to cover a basketball matchup when the storm hit. “I had just started working for the paper,” he said. “There was a Corinth High School basketball game against New Albany that was canceled and never made up.” Todd Hight was work-

ing as a machinist at Developmental Industries in Corinth. “I never missed a day of work during the ice storm,” he said. “It was fun getting to work. I remember power sliding down Harper Road at like 15 miles per hour.” Charlie and Beverly Gooch owned the Village Sandwich Shoppe in Corinth. “The first few days after the storm, we were one of the few restaurants open in town,” he said. “We didn’t have electricity, so we just fired up the gas grill and started cooking. Needless to say, we stayed longer than we wanted to. Every time we were going to close someone else would drive up and want to order something.” Weeks after ice storm ’94, local department stores stocked “I survived ice storm ’94” and “I love the power” t-shirts. Janice Knighton recalled buying one of the iconic shirts. “I wore it with pride,” she said. “So glad I survived that horrible event.”


while also educating numerous others through her profession as a 1st-5th grade teacher. Although she spent some 12-15 years in the teaching profession, nursing was her first love. “My desire was to become a nurse, but there were no schools for blacks during that time,” said the Jackson State University graduate. Plan B was teaching and it came from her principal, A.A. Alexander. “He took me to Jackson State and said ‘this is what you are going to do’ … he was an inspiration to me,” said the Elementary Education major. Jones also went on to attend Washington University in St. Louis, Mo. After seeing the last of her children start school, Jones went back to work. A volunteer with both 4-H and Girls Scouts until her children grew up, Jones took a job with the Tennessee Valley Regional Housing Authority. It was her organized way of doing things which garnered the job. “They felt I could help in that area,” she said. “I met a lot of good people in the Blue Mountain, Walnut and Ripley areas while working for TVRA.” Jones also helped young people in her role

Former police officer sentenced to 1 year SELMER — Christopher Eugene Reynolds, 39, a former police officer of the Selmer Police Department, was sentenced Wednesday by Chief U.S. District Judge J. Daniel Breen to serve one year and one day in prison following his conviction for violating the civil rights of an arrestee, announced United States Attorney Edward L. Stanton III. Reynolds pleaded guilty on Nov. 6, 2013. Judge Breen also sentenced Reynolds to a period of two years supervised release and a $100 special assessment. Reynolds admitted that on April 28, 2011, while using his authority as a SPD officer, he slammed a handcuffed arrestee to the floor of the McNairy Regional Hospital and struck him once in the face. According to information presented in court, Reynolds acknowledged that this assault was unreasonable, did not serve a legitimate law enforcement purpose and was not made by accident, mistake or inadvertence. “Law enforcement officers must abide by and adhere to the same laws they take an oath to enforce,” said U.S. Attorney Stanton. “Instead of serving and protecting the public, this officer used physical force to violate the civil rights of an individual and will now serve prison time, vividly

Museum where she still helps occasionally. “The first two years we had lots of people coming,” she said. “She started putting things in the museum that she had collected over the years,” added Miller, who works at the museum. “She wasn’t from Corinth, but she knew more about its history than anyone else … she can still tell you things from those days.” Today, the retiree spends most of her time working in her yard and tending to her dog, Bogie II. She also finds time to fish when the weather permits. “My children want me to come live with them,” said Jones, whose husband passed away three years ago. “I always said I would like to go back South where it’s warm, but it’s cold everywhere these days.” For now, the Mt. Pleasant church goer will keep on working in her yard, when the weather allows along with promoting education. “I want to see more people off the streets and staying in school,” she said. “The only way people can live is by getting an education.” Something her high school principal taught her over 60 years ago.

Fire department receives grant BOONEVILLE — Booneville firefighters will be a little safer on the job thanks to the recent approval of a federal grant. Fire Chief Jerry Wallace announced the approval of a $16,500 federal grant for the purchase of personal protective equipment for the department during Tuesday’s regular meeting of the Board of Aldermen. Wallace said they are currently completing the final paperwork to receive the funds which can be used to purchase protective gear including clothing, gloves, face shields, helmets or any other such equipment. He said the funds are much needed since the department has been in the process over the past several years of slowly replacing worn out and outdated equipment.

be moving or combining several voting precincts in the county. The changes will allow the county to consolidate voting operations and cut down on the considerable cost of running elections. In District 1, the Hubbard Salem precinct will move to building 1000 at the Tri-State Commerce Park. In District 2, West Burnsville and Burnsville precincts will be combined. Those voters will vote at the Burnsville Area Chamber of Commerce. In District 3, the West Iuka precinct will be consolidated with the East Iuka precinct. Those voters will vote at the National Guard Armory. The new precinct will be called East Iuka. In District 4, the Tishomingo precinct and West Tishomingo will be combined. The new precinct will be called Tishomingo and voters will vote at the Tishomingo Community Center. These changes will take effect prior to the US Senate and House primary elections in June.

tions for the coming days. “It could come in Sunday night or possibly late on Monday,” he said. The latest forecasts available Saturday called for a slight chance of rain overnight Sunday turning to freezing rain after 1 a.m. Monday and a 20 percent chance of freezing rain, sleet or snow through the day on Monday. Monday night brings a 50 percent chance of

snow, mostly after 7 p.m. and a low of around 24. The snow could continue into the early morning hours on Tuesday with accumulations of less than one inch possible. Chaskelson encourages residents to pay close attention to updated forecasts in the coming days as they firm up predictions and to be extremely cautious if traveling in areas of wintry weather.

momentum with business leaders in town and with things like the Wick Street project and restaurants like Smith. coming to town,” he said. “I think we were just kind of stagnant before liquor was voted in. I’m not saying liquor had everything to do with that, but it certainly didn’t hurt those projects getting started.” And Alderman Andrew Labas points to several existing restaurants that remodeled after the introduction of liquor. The package stores have picked up substantial business from neighboring communities. “We got a lot of business at first from places like Walnut and Ripley and other communities that are dry,” said Schnabl. “Now that other cities have gone wet under the new bill, that has calmed down a little bit.” The store gets good business from the Selmer and Pickwick areas. Allen Lee said he hears from customers that the pricing is better in Mississippi than in some of the Tennessee and Alabama locations. “I would daresay 40 percent of our business is from out of state,” he said. “It’s significant, especially in the seasonal months, with the Pickwick crowd.” One of their most loyal customers comes from Booneville each Friday to eat at a local restaurant and make his liquor pur-

chases. “He said, ‘You know what, I used to drive to Tupelo every Friday night to do this,’” said Lee. At J.R.’s Wine & Spirits, Rodney Manahan is seeing customers get acquainted with the broader selection available today. “One interesting thing about this business is there is a much larger variety of spirits that have come in since the last time it was here,” said Manahan, whose store opened in March. Public safety The statistics on DUIs and related offenses show a decrease in DUI cases during the last couple of years, while public drunk offenses increased in 2013. The city issued about 3,000 citations in total for all offenses in 2013, and 323 of those were alcohol related, according to Municipal Court Clerk Zane Elliott. The number of DUI offenses decreased from 188 in 2012 to 145 in 2013. Since 2010, the number has averaged 189. While public drunk offenses increased 26 percent from 105 in 2012 to 132 in 2013, the number has averaged 130 over the last four years. The number was 154 in 2010 and 127 in 2011. Elliott believes the city saw significantly more DUI activity in the 1980s when the city had more bar type establishments.

wintry precipitation over Northeast Mississippi,” said National Weather Service Meteorologist Cory Chaskelson. The Memphis, Tenn.based weather forecaster said the exact amount of precipitation and exactly when it may arrive remains uncertain with different forecast models predicting different condi-


at TVRA. The former Brookhaven resident convinced many to get back into school. “Most of them were too young to not be doing anything … I told them they needed to get an education,” added Jones. Education is still important to the mother of eight today. “In my time as a teacher, I watched a lot of students go to college,” said the former teacher. “I have met lots of children who have gone on to do well.” “She has always been interested in the total person,” said former student Frieda Miller. “She just didn’t come in and do her job … she wanted to know how you were doing in other areas.” Following her time at TVRA, the seventh in a family of 10 children spent time working with the Corinth Housing Authority. “I was a sticker for rules while working,” she said. “It’s the only way we can live in society … there is no control out there today.” It all starts with discipline, according to the JSU grad. “People can’t be taught unless they have discipline,” said Jones. After retiring, the Corinth woman was part of a group that helped start the Black History

illustrating that no one is above the law.” This case was investigated by FBI Special Agent Christopher Miller with the assistance of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. The case was prosecuted by Trial Attorney Ryan J. Murguía for the Civil Rights Division and Special Litigation Counsel Gerard V. Hogan.

so many stores have been willing to put that investment out there,” said Allan Lee. “They feel like it’s here to stay.” The huge margin was a factor in the Lees’ own decision. “Had it been a close vote, I don’t know that we would have gone through with it,” he said. “It’s just a big, big part of your life starting a new business, no matter what the business, and a huge financial investment.” Economic impact While the Mississippi Department of Revenue does not report a figure for liquor sales in its monthly reports, retailers are reporting good business. During the period since sales began, Corinth’s share of sales tax proceeds has increased by $90,746.10, or 2 percent, and the tourism tax on food and lodging has increased by $32,713.23, or 3.6 percent. Both are results that generally follow the trends of the last few years. The city government gets a portion of the annual licensing fee paid by retailers and restaurants, and those payments to the city total $19,275 thus far. Franz Schnabl of The Twisted Cork, the second store that opened, believes the return of liquor sales is helping the local economy. “I see lots of organic

Corinth, Miss.

Ask Dr. Politics! Ask Dr. Politics! You are fair, and we are unbalanced! Dear Dr. Politics: Will Hillary Clinton run for president in 2016? Answer: Yes. And not because of her enormous lead for the Democratic nomination in the early polls. And not because of her huge fundraising potential, her political skills or her grasp of the issues. Dr. Politics knows she is running for president because Roger she already is doing something Simon she almost never did in 2008: She is telling jokes. Columnist When she ran last time, The Wall Street Journal said she “has to prove she has normal human warmth.” Slate said, “Clinton can be easily portrayed as cold, calculating, and ruthless, and that’s not a problem that can be easily fixed.” But this time, the problem is being fixed. She sent out a tweet Sunday during the Super Bowl, saying, “It’s so much more fun to watch FOX when it’s someone else being blitzed & sacked!” Some in the media were so taken aback by Clinton’s being humorous that they didn’t get it. USA Today took her seriously in its first story and then had to run this advisory: “An earlier version of this report should have made clear that the former secretary of State was joking when referencing Fox.” The paper went on: “At first glance it was unclear as to the intention of Clinton’s tweet. But, Clinton’s press secretary Nick Merrill clarified in an e-mail that it was indeed a joke. ‘It was good-natured, light-hearted, and self-deprecating,’ Merrill said.” And you could see her campaign aides checking the boxes on their list: Good-natured? Yes! Lighthearted? Absolutely! Selfdeprecating? You bet! When she ran for president before, she failed to show the lighter side of her nature. But this time, she is going for the big yuks early. We will know this for sure when she comes out on a campaign stage and says, “Take my husband -- please!” Dear Dr. Politics: Rumors keep circulating that Mitt Romney is considering another run for the presidency. A new documentary has humanized him. A new poll shows he is leading the Republican pack in New Hampshire. And one website says that a lot of Republican donors are saying, “I think we need Mitt back.” Is this for real? Answer: I think 47 percent of former Republican contenders will run again in 2016. They are dependent upon government. They believe they are victims. They believe that the government has a responsibility to care for them and that they are entitled to health care, to food, to the White House, to you-name-it. Our job is to not worry about them. Dear Dr. Politics: Weren’t you outraged when Rep. Michael Grimm, R-N.Y., recently threatened to throw a reporter off a balcony and break him in half “like a boy”? Answer: No. Grimm is not a real tough guy. You know the first thing a real tough guy does when he’s going to throw you off a balcony? He throws you off a balcony. You know the first thing a real tough guy does when he is going to break you in half like a boy? He breaks you in half like a boy. I tell all beginning reporters the same thing: “Stand up to tough guys. Most of them are big sissies. And if they break both your legs, then you can come running to me.” Dear Dr. Politics: Is New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie washed up? And I’d like a serious answer, please. Answer: When Chris Christie goes through a buffet, they have to put down speed bumps. If Chris Christie ran for the nomination, his bellybutton would get there 30 minutes before him. Chris Christie doesn’t just show up on the political radar; he shows up on real radar. And don’t worry about his being convicted of anything. He didn’t say, “Close the bridge!” He said, “Close the fridge!” Thank you. I’ll be here all week. Try the veal. Roger Simon is Politico’s chief political columnist. His new e-book, “Reckoning: Campaign 2012 and the Fight for the Soul of America,” can be found on, and iTunes.

Prayer for today Gracious Father, help me to take of the wealth of my day, while it is in season, and accessible. May I not be ignorant of the abundance in which I live, and be found in overwhelming regret. Forgive me for all that I have missed in life, and make me more watchful of that which is to come. Amen.

A verse to share “But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against the LORD: and be sure your sin will find you out.” — Numbers 32:23

Americans learn best from failure America succeeds because Americans fail and forgive. That’s the intriguing message — or part of it — of Megan McArdle’s new book “The Up Side of Down: Why Failing Well Is the Key to Success.” McArdle, a Bloomberg blogger and columnist, stands out among economic writers, and not just because she’s the only woman among them who is 6 feet 2 inches. She combines a shrewd knowledge of economics and practical experience with a writing style that every so often segues into comedy monologue. Americans fail a lot, she argues. Most new businesses fail. Most predictions are wrong. And attempts to guard against failure can result in greater failures later on. Children prevented from roughhousing at recess may engage in riskier behavior later. Antibiotic overuse makes bacteria resistant to antibiotics, which then don’t work when you need them. But good judgment comes from experience. And experience comes from bad judgment — from failures. The key question is how you respond, whether you learn from failure and rebound. Drawing from pre-history, McArdle contrasts farmers and foragers, the hunter-gatherers who lived before the development of agriculture. Foragers tend to share success with neighbors, in the expectation that others

will share later. They see success as the result of luck -- the hunter who happens to spy a Michael particularly Barone v u l n e r a b l e mammoth. Columnist Farmers tend to share success only with family members. They see success — a plenteous harvest — as the result of their own families’ hard work and conscientiousness. Americans, in McArdle’s view, have values like those of farmers. Much more than Europeans, they believe that there is a connection between effort and reward. Those who have earned more deserve it. Europeans tend to believe that success comes mostly from luck. They enlist government to, in President Obama’s words to Joe the Plumber, “spread the wealth around.” But in some respects, Americans behave like foragers. They’re often ready to forgive failures. Hightech entrepreneurs like to hire people whose businesses failed because it shows a willingness to take chances. The U.S., McArdle points out, has the most accessible bankruptcy laws in the world. You can slough off your debts (except for student loans) relatively easily. In supposedly progressive Denmark, they hang over you for life.

The result is that, contrary to F. Scott Fitzgerald’s adage, there are many, many second acts in American life. Americans also, though McArdle doesn’t mention this, donate far more to charity than Europeans do. Great philanthropists have created beneficial institutions — Andrew Carnegie’s libraries, John D. Rockefeller’s research medical schools, many donors’ universities — which Europe can’t match. McArdle mostly ignores religion, but this blend of farmer property-owning and forager sharing is in line with Christian teaching. There is such a thing as sin, and it should be penalized. But there is also the possibility of forgiveness and redemption and a duty to share in your own way. Though not technically part of the millennial generation (those born after 1980), McArdle presents a Millennials’ view of the world. Sudden macroeconomic shifts can result in months of soul-deadening unemployment (she was working in IT just as the dot-com bubble burst). The future is wildly unpredictable, failure is frequent, success seemingly serendipitous (her freelance blogging got her a job blogging at the Economist). Her advice is to avoid enterprises that are in long-term decline, such as General Motors starting in the 1970s. In business and

public policy, try to learn from well-conducted experiments — but recognize that successful trials can’t always be replicated on a large scale. Don’t rush to conclude that disasters like the 2008 financial crash are the result of conspiracy or the errors of one easily identified group of malefactors. Bubbles happen in any free market economy and are hard to identify until they burst. “The world is an increasingly insecure place,” she writes, “and there is no way to make it less risky.” The best way ahead is to admit mistakes quickly, understand that you may well fail, but you can usually rebound and punish rulebreaking promptly and consistently but lightly. This book about people who fail is also a book about how a nation succeeds. The “American Bourgeois Synthesis,” McArdle writes, is good but not perfect, promoting entrepreneurship but over-penalizing some mistakes. Americans — and America — can succeed, but only if people learn from their failures.

Democrats are the party of less work The Democrats once styled themselves the party of workers. Now, they are the party of people who would have been workers, if it hadn’t been for Obamacare. The Congressional Budget Office released a new analysis of the economic effects of the health-care law that estimates that it will reduce the number of workers, in effect, by 2.5 million in 2024. This unleashed a torrent of arguments from the Democrats implicitly denigrating the value of work. The old jobs crisis was people not having jobs; the new jobs crisis is people having to work. The party devoted to combating inequality is now blithely unconcerned about a law discouraging people — especially people down the income scale — from earning more. White House press secretary Jay Carney declared the CBO report a validation of the law: “We noted that as part of this new day in health care, Americans would no longer be trapped in a job just to provide coverage for their families and would have the opportunity to

pursue their dreams. This CBO report bears that out.” If only the number of Rich people efLowry fectively dissuaded from National Review working were 5 million, or 7.5 million, the health-care law would be an even more stunning triumph of sound public policy and true American values. A few caveats are in order: We aren’t talking about jobs that are eliminated in the usual sense of discouraging employers from hiring, as some Republican talking points suggested. And the 2.5 million number isn’t for jobs per se, but for “fulltime equivalent” positions, i.e., the cumulative lost hours of millions of people deciding to work less. Nonetheless, the number is devastating. Democrats like Jay Carney want to pass it all off as ending the “job lock” that keeps people in a job only to preserve their health insurance. There is a little something to this, but

it isn’t the main problem. Obamacare has created a vast apparatus of subsidies, penalties and taxes that is effectively anti-work. The CBO explains that Obamacare’s subsidies, by giving people more resources, allow “some people to maintain the same standard of living while working less.” And the way they phase out creates another disincentive, as “subsidies decline with rising income (and increase as income falls), thus making work less attractive.” The penalties and taxes, meanwhile, “will ultimately induce some workers to supply less labor.” Democrats consider all this and pronounce themselves well-pleased. Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Wis., sees only upside in people working less: “What that means is instead they might be able to tuck their child in bed at night and read a bedtime story, or go to an activity, which means they’re better off.” Harry Reid found his inner libertarian: “We live in a country where we should be free agents. People can do what they want.” Obvious-

ly, if you are afraid to earn more because government will take away a subsidy, you aren’t a free agent. White House economic adviser Jason Furman made an inapt comparison. “Getting rid of Social Security and Medicare would cause more 95-year-olds to work,” he said. “You wouldn’t judge whether Social Security or Medicare are good or bad based on what they do to labor supply.” No, you wouldn’t — because they are programs for the elderly. Discouraging work among 95-year-olds is different than discouraging work among people in the prime of their lives. No one told us when the bill was being considered that Obamacare would have some of the same effects as a retirement program. The latest CBO numbers are part of the growing list of facts about Obamacare that, if they had been widely acknowledged before its passage, would have doomed it in Congress. But that debate seems so long ago. It was back when both political parties professed to be pro-work.

Nation Briefs Associated Press

Same-sex rights applied to courts WASHINGTON — In an assertion of samesex marriage rights, Attorney General Eric Holder is applying a landmark Supreme Court ruling to the Justice Department, announcing Saturday that same-sex spouses cannot be compelled to testify against each other, should be eligible to file for bankruptcy jointly and are entitled to the same rights and privileges as federal prison inmates in opposite-sex marriages. The Justice Department runs a number of benefits programs, and Holder says same-sex couples will qualify for them. They include the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund and benefits to surviving spouses of public safety officers who suffer catastrophic or fatal injuries in the line of duty. “In every courthouse, in every proceeding and in every place where a member of the Department of Justice stands on behalf of the United States, they will strive to ensure that samesex marriages receive the same privileges, protections and rights as opposite-sex marriages under federal law,” Holder said in prepared remarks to the Human Rights Campaign in New York. The advocacy group works on behalf of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equal rights. Just as in the civil rights struggles of the 1960s, the stakes in the current generation over same-sex marriage rights “could not be higher,” said Holder.

Reports: NSA gets fraction of call data WASHINGTON — The National Security Agency collects less than 30 percent of calling data from Americans despite the agency’s massive daily efforts to sweep up the bulk of U.S. phone records, two U.S. newspapers reported Friday. Citing anonymous officials and sources, The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal both said the NSA’s phone data collection has had a steep dropoff since 2006. According to the newspapers, the government has been unable to keep pace since then with a national surge in cellphone usage and dwindling landline use by American consumers. The Post said the NSA takes in less than 30 percent of all call data; the Journal said it is about or less than 20 percent. In either case, the figures are far below the amount of phone data collected in 2006, when the government extracted nearly all of U.S. calling records, both newspapers reported. NSA officials

intend to press for court authorization to broaden their coverage of cellphone providers to return the government to near-total coverage of Americans’ calling data, the newspapers said. The lowered estimates for the sweep of government surveillance would be significant because federal judges, members of government task forces and media accounts based on documents provided by NSA leaker Edward Snowden have all described the NSA’s bulk metadata collection as sweeping in millions of records from American phone users. Lowered estimates could be cited by officials to alleviate privacy and civil liberties fears, but they could also raise questions about the government’s rationale for the program — that the NSA’s use of all Americans’ phone records are critical in preventing potential terrorist plots.

Ohio parents fight girl’s forced chemo TOLEDO, Ohio — An Ohio couple in hiding with their daughter plan to pursue their legal arguments to make health care decisions for her even if judges allow a court-appointed guardian to withdraw from a campaign to put her through cancer treatments. Andy and Anna Hershberger are appealing a ruling that allowed the guardian to step in. The Amish couple says chemotherapy was killing 11-year-old Sarah, who has leukemia. Meanwhile, the guardian says she can’t contact the family and wants to withdraw from the case. The Hershbergers say assigning a guardian to have the final say robbed them of their constitutional rights. They’re appealing under the Ohio Health Care Freedom Amendment that voters approved. Their appeal marks the first time a court has been asked to determine the scope of the amendment.

Missing student vexes dad, cops CONCORD, N.H. — Ten years ago, Maura Murray packed her car, lied to professors about a death in the family and headed to New Hampshire. Then, the 21-year-old nursing student from Massachusetts vanished. She left a tormented family, vexed investigators and a case rife with rumor and innuendo. Investigators say there hasn’t been a single, credible sighting of her since minutes after her car spun into trees and a snowbank along Route 112 in North Haverhill the night of Feb. 9, 2004. It is one of the most intriguing among scores of New Hampshire cold cases.

Fred Murray believes his daughter is dead, the victim of a crime. But he wants to keep her case in the public eye in hopes of finally knowing what really happened that night.

New York heroin dealers blend in NEW YORK — A littlenoticed drug bust a week before actor Philip Seymour Hoffman died of an apparent heroin overdose shed more light on the well-oiled distribution network for the drug. Authorities say the network packages heroin supplied by Mexican cartels at mills run by Dominican immigrants and hidden in safe neighborhoods in New York City and the suburbs. Workers churn countless single-dose packets for a thriving market that includes mainstream customers like Hoffman. Dealers and users often connect on social media sites. Phone numbers are exchanged and meeting spots are arranged through texting. How Hoffman got his drugs remains uncertain. But evidence suggests he may have visited an unassuming lower Manhattan apartment building where a supplier lived.

Alleged kidnapper faked pregnancy TOWN OF BELOIT, Wis. — An hour after a woman reported her newborn son missing from a Wisconsin home, police were questioning her step-sister — found with a prosthetic pregnancy belly, baby clothes and a stroller, but no baby, according to court documents It was more than 24 hours after Kayden Powell went missing before authorities discovered the infant, less than a week old, in a plastic storage crate outside an Iowa gas station, miraculously alive and well despite frigid temperatures. Kristen Smith of Denver had pretended to be pregnant, went to Wisconsin and stole her step-sister’s baby from his bassinet as his parents slept, court documents say. Then, as police closed in on her, she allegedly abandoned the infant, who was swaddled in blankets. Federal prosecutors in Madison charged Smith with kidnapping Friday afternoon, hours after an Iowa police chief found Kayden.

Wilemoni in hospital following surgery JACKSON — A second state lawmaker from north Mississippi is hospitalized after undergoing gall bladder surgery. Democratic Sen. J.P. Wilemon of Belmont had surgery at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson. Hospital spokesman Jack Mazurak says Wilemon is in good condition Friday. Sen. Gary Jackson of French Camp announced to colleagues during the Senate session Friday that Wilemon had one surgery Thursday and another Friday. The 73-year-old Wilemon has been in the Senate since 2004, representing Itawamba, Prentiss and Tishomingo counties. State Rep. Steve Holland of Plantersville has remained hospitalized since having gall bladder surgery at UMMC two weeks ago.

State gets $5.6 million for schools JACKSON — Mississippi is getting $5.6 million in federal money to pay for efforts to improve poorly performing schools. The U.S. Department of Education announced Friday that Mississippi was getting the money along with five other states and the District of Columbia Mississippi Department of Education spokeswoman Patrice Guilfoyle says the state expects to be able to give multi-year grants to as many as eight of 33 eligible schools, with competitive applications due in March. No local match is required. The program has sent $33 million to help improve 10 schools or school districts since 2011. Most recipients have improved significantly, but some are still struggling. Under the program, applicants have four options ranging from hiring a new principal to closing a school and sending students to a better school.

Cantrell describes the work as serious enhancement. “Callaway is going to receive new paint, new furniture, sprinkler system, new water fountain and new awnings,” she said. The exteriors of Kincannon Hall and Jones Hall are also being painted. Over the next six years, each residence hall will be updated. The enhancements have been in the works for years, Cantrell said, with funding coming from an existing in-house budget. Of the 2,600 students enrolled at the university, about 540 live on campus.

Desegregation case before appeals court JACKSON — The federal government’s longrunning desegregation fight with the Cleveland, Miss., school system has made its way to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans. The government says a federal judge in Mississippi erred in ordering the Cleveland public schools to adopt a “freedom-of-choice” desegregation plan as a remedy for failing to desegregate formerly predominantly black schools. The government said the evidence shows the plan from U.S. District Judge Glen Davidson in Oxford will not effectively desegregate the schools. The desegregation case dates back to 1965 when plaintiffs sued the Bolivar County school system, including Cleveland. The school system has been under oversight of federal courts ever since.

Janus to change plea JACKSON — Former D’Iberville manager Michael Janus will change his plea on charges that he defrauded the city of $180,000 in grant money after admitting his guilt to FBI agents in an interview last year. A change-of-plea hearing will be held Monday before U.S. District Judge Keith Starrett in Hattiesburg, according to court documents filed Friday. Janus and former Ocean Springs mayoral candidate Scott Walker were indicted in November on five counts: conspiracy to defraud the federal government, fraud, bribery and two counts of money laundering. Lawyers for Janus and Walker did not immediately respond to requests for comment Friday. Janus is free on bond.

dents played games such as, Jeopardy and What’s in a Cigarette? They went on scavenger hunts and created a symbolic representation of how addiction effects different aspects of life. Taking clear plastic tubes, they first added sand. Next they added a tiny black pom-pom to show what happens to the brain. Torn money was inserted to represent the amount of money spent yearly on tobacco products. For most smokers, the amount is over $3,000 annually. A Popsicle stick was broken into pieces and the names of family members were etched on the remnants to show that once addiction tears up a family unit, it can never be fully put back together. All that remains are splinters and sharp edges. Next to be placed inside the tube was a small heart. The heart represented the harmful things that smoking does to a person’s body such as, lung cancer and emphysema. The last thing added was a jewel which represented an individuals hopes, goals and dreams. Students were instructed to shake the tubes and see what happened. As a result, the tube became more cloudy and the jewel was all but lost. “It was a good visual,” said McGrath. “It’s something they can

GULFPORT — Fred the K-9 didn’t cut it with the Gulfport Police Department but he may still find respectable employment elsewhere. The Sun Herald reports that Fred did fine on patrols and sniffing out drugs, but sometimes got distracted, stopping to play with a soda can he spied on a floor while searching a building, for example. US K-9 Unlimited in Kaplan, La., agreed to take Fred back, but the Harrison County Sheriff’s Office in Mississippi has expressed interest in him. K-9 Unlimited owner Roger Abshire says the 3-year-old Belgian Malinois he bought in the Netherlands was selected out of hundreds of dogs, so his talent is not an issue. Abshire says Fred’s first Gulfport handler took medical leave and Fred didn’t bond the quite same with the second partner.

The demonstration sought to prove how two seemingly harmless ingredients can become dangerous when combined. The conference is part of the Community Connections mentoring program and is held statewide. Melissa Nash, the Prentiss/ Tishomingo County project director of the MS Tobacco Free Coalition was in attendance as well as others who advocate smoking awareness. According to their website, The Mississippi Tobacco-Free Coalitions are grassroots groups covering all 82 Mississippi counties. The Coalitions work to reduce tobaccorelated disease and death by educating youth about the dangers of tobacco, encouraging communities to implement smoke-free ordinances and promoting tobacco cessation services. They are funded by a grant from the Mississippi State Department of Health. The Coalitions work with the Health Department to educate citizens on the dangers of tobacco use.

Telegram’s journey helped spark Shiloh BY TOM PARSON NPS Ranger

There are a number of walking programs we rangers periodically lead around Corinth, and I think this one is my favorite. My co-worker Rachel compares this program with a pin-ball machine; it bounces you all around the residential section of the historic district. The story begins at the end of March in 1862. General Albert Sidney Johnston was preparing to march his army north and attack Grant in his camp at Pittsburg Landing, Tennessee. The camps were close to a little country church called Shiloh. Johnston had already made up his mind he was going to attack, he just hadn’t decided on WHEN he was going to attack. Since another Federal army under General Buell was on the way to join Grant, Johnston wisely figured it was best to attack before Buell arrived. It’s just common sense that it’s easier to beat one army than two. Why was he waiting? He needed more information, what we military types call intelligence. Johnston had sent a division of troops about thirty miles north of Corinth to the community of Bethel and they were there to gather some of the badly needed information. There was a rumor of enemy troop movements on the west bank of the Tennessee near Crump’s Landing, so they went on a reconnaissance east toward Adamsville to see what was going on. As it turned out, the rumor was correct. Of course this alarmed the Union commander at Adamsville, Gen. Lew Wallace, who responded by lining up his own division for a fight. So there they were, two divisions, about 7,000 soldiers, with each commander thinking the other side was about to attack. It was late in the afternoon on April 2nd. The Confederate commander, Gen. Benjamin Franklin Cheatham, decided this show of force might be the beginning of a Union effort to break the Mobile & Ohio Railroad before heading south for Corinth. It wasn’t, but he

The Gen. R.H. Allen House was built with an identical floor-plan as that of the Verandah House. didn’t know that. At any rate he sent a telegram to his boss in Corinth to raise the alarm. The telegraph key began to chatter in the telegraph office by the depot. The operator took the time to decode the message and write it out on the proper form. The telegram was then sent off by courier to Cheatham’s superior officer, Major General Leonidas Polk. It was 10:00 p.m. Polk was relaxing in his headquarters at “Oak Home” on the east side of Fillmore Street between Bunch and Gloster. The home really belonged to Major William Kilpatrick who was away on duty in Pensacola, Florida. Prior to the war William was a respected Judge and captain of the Corinth Rifles, the local militia company. General Polk was a West Pointer who had resigned from the army to enter the clergy. When the war began he was the Episcopal Bishop of Louisiana. Polk recognized the importance of the telegram and immediately sent it by a messenger to his boss, General Pierre Gustave Toutant Beauregard. “Old Borey” was in his headquarters in the Fish Pond House on Kilpatrick Street when the messenger came up the four steps to the porch. It was the home of the Neeley family and they had been gracious enough to open their home for the man who was probably the most famous Confederate general of all, at least at

that time. General Beauregard didn’t seem too surprised by the contents of the telegram; in fact he believed the posturing by Wallace’s troops to be the opening moves of an all-out Federal advance. He decided the message needed to be sent to Gen. Johnston immediately, so he snatched a pencil and scribbled on the telegram, “Now is the moment to advance and strike the enemy at Pittsburg Landing.” He thought about it for a second and added, “Colonel Jordan had better carry this in person to General Johnston and explain the military situation. – G.T.B.” An aidede-camp hustled off in the night to take the telegram to Jordan. So if the message was so important, why didn’t Beauregard take the message to Johnston in person? A very good question with two good answers. Beauregard had been very ill with a chronic throat infection. He had suffered through surgery a few weeks earlier and he was still under the weather. Once the telegram had continued its journey, Beauregard went to bed and was not awakened until hours later. The other reason Beauregard didn’t take it was that it simply wasn’t his place to take it. Army protocol called for correspondence for the commanding general to be sent via the army’s newly appointed Adjutant General, Col. Thomas Jordan. The adjutant general, or A.G., is the equivalent of

a chief administrative officer. And just where did the telegram go? Jordan said his office was a quartermile away from Beauregard’s and since Corinth was still a pretty small town there were not a whole lot of choices at that distance. Since he was a senior member of Johnston’s staff logic dictates he had to be close to his boss. He was probably in the home of General Richard H. Allen, a retired officer from the Tennessee militia. The home, later to be known as the “Old Borrum House,” stood across Fillmore Street from Oak Home where the First United Methodist Church stands today. Other senior staff officers were using the home as their offices and quarters and it’s a safe bet Jordan was there too. Thomas Jordan was a career soldier who had graduated from West Point in 1840, ranked 41st in a class of 42. His roommate at the academy was William T. Sherman who ranked No.6. Since Beauregard’s comments called for Jordan to personally deliver the telegram, he walked the piece of paper across the street to the headquarters of General Johnston at the “Rose Cottage.” The home of William and Augusta Inge was south of Bunch Street from “Oak Home” and on the opposite corner across from Jordan’s quarters. The home was named “Rose Cottage” not only for the flowers in the gardens but

The Fish Pond House was so named for the feature on top of the house designed to catch rainwater and collect it in a tin container. the rose-colored paint as well. William Inge was a captain in the 12th Mississippi Infantry in Virginia. As luck would have it he was home on furlough during this critical time in Corinth and was more than willing to play host to General Johnston. William volunteered as an aide to his friend Gen. Charles Clark and his duties kept him in camp which meant Augusta served as hostess to their high ranking guest. Johnston took the telegram from Jordan, studied it for a moment or two while his staff looked on, and then headed for the door with Col. Jordan following in his wake. With the telegram grasped in his hand, Johnston walked across Fillmore and around the block to the Verandah House on Jackson Street. The home was owned by William Simonton, though it’s unclear if he was in residence at the time. At any rate, the stately house was the headquarters of General Braxton Bragg, who had retired for the evening. The general was not only one of Johnston’s corps commanders, he was also the chief-of-staff for the army and a trusted advisor. Jordan told how, “We found that General Bragg had already gone to bed, but he received us in dishabille.” Which is a Victorian

way of saying Bragg took the meeting in his night shirt. After a short discussion Johnston resolved to trust the “iron dice” of battle and he made the fateful decision that now was the time to attack Grant’s army in Tennessee. There you have it, the big decision that led to the Battle of Shiloh was made in Bragg’s bedroom in the Verandah House. “Thereupon, I turned to a table in General Bragg’s chamber,” wrote Jordan, “and wrote a circular order to the three corps commanders directing that each should hold his corps under arms by 6 A.M.” Each man was to have three days of rations in his haversack and a hundred rounds of ammunition issued. It was past 1 o’clock when Johnston approved the order and messengers scattered into the night with the news that would rouse the army and send the columns lurching north into Tennessee. Now that you’ve been bounced from point to point to point, do you see why Rachel compares the tour to a pin-ball machine? The walking tour is a lot of fun and I invite you to attend next time one of us rangers heads out on a program. Not only is it enlightening, it’s an excellent opportunity to get out and walk the streets of this fascinating city we call home.

Sherman brings ‘hard War’ to Jackson and Brandon BY TIM ISBELL Associated Press

In February 1864, William T. Sherman and the Union Army of Tennessee embarked on a new facet of warfare. This self-described “hard war” promised to take the conflict to noncombatants in order to break their will to support the Confederate war effort. This new tactic was used during Sherman’s Meridian campaign. Before Sherman reached Meridian, he tried his “hard war” approach at Jackson. This had not always been Sherman’s concept of war. Prior to the Civil War, Sherman had lived in the South serving as superintendent of what is now Louisiana State University. Many of Sherman’s friends were Southerners and he liked the Southern way of life. When the Civil War began, Sherman was protective of noncombatants and their property. As the war continued, Sherman’s views changed. Confederate guerilla raids convinced Sherman that citizens across the countryside were providing

supplies and support to the Confederates, as well as, arming themselves to harm Union soldiers. To rid Mississippi of the Confederate army, Sherman surmised that the state had to be made of no strategic value to the Confederate government. There was no other way to do that than to destroy the state. By taking the war to the Mississippi citizens, Sherman hoped to make them so sick of the conflict that they would give up the will to fight and support those who did fight. On the march from Vicksburg to Jackson, Sherman’s soldiers perfected their art of finding any valuables or food hidden from the Federal troops. Cured hams and other delectable items were often found hidden in the woods or swamps surrounding Southern homes and farms. During the march to Jackson, one Southern woman asked Sherman to place a guard over her meat house to keep soldiers from raiding it. Sherman’s response was to the point. He said his

soldiers needed the meat and since the Southerners “had brought the war on themselves, they must bear the consequences.” On Feb. 6, 1864, Sherman’s troops arrived in Jackson for the third time since May 1863. Hosea Rood of the 12th Wisconsin Infantry said of their time at the state capital, “We remained in Jackson long enough for the city to suffer on account of our presence. Just who set the fires none of us could tell. A building here and there would be seen with flames just bursting through windows or roof, and that’s all any of us knew about it.” James Jessee wrote in his journal, “Boys perfectly crazy setting the houses a fire.” Despite all the destruction the statehouse and courthouse were spared from the flames. Upon leaving Jackson and marching across a pontoon bridge over the Pearl River, Rood took one final glance toward Jackson. The town was still on fire and Rood noted that Jackson “presented a sorry appearance.” Southern women in

Brandon cast hateful looks at the blue-clad soldiers but mean expressions did little to stop their destruction. Sher-

man’s soldiers burned a recruiting office and a jail along with several stores and public buildings. Sherman’s hard war

had begun and a tattered Jackson and Brandon lay in their wake. Meanwhile, Sherman continued eastward toward Meridian.

Kimberly-Clark goes tobacco free For the Daily Corinthian

Effective Jan. 1, the Kimberly-Clark site went tobacco-free. This includes the grounds, parking lots, leased buildings and the facilities for both K-C Nonwovens and K-C Professional. Vince Overholt, K-C Nonwovens mill manager, stated, “It’s not an insignificant task to go tobacco-free.” The planning and developing of this process began about 10 months ago. During this time Kimberly-Clark has been communicating, educating and offering cessation services for its employees. “Since the Jan. 1 effective date, we haven’t had any complaints,” said Overholt. K-C leaders knew, for the employees that smoked or used tobacco, this was a big deal. “We realized that this was going to be difficult for them and the attitude has been great from our people,” stated Overholt. Leading up to the effective date of Jan. 1, Kimberly-Clark communicated regularly with its employees, vendors, and contract workers emphasizing its plan and the date that their policy would go into effect. During the transition, Kimberly-Clark Occupational Health nurses, Anna Bowden and Karen Vander Wielen, visited with employees to help

with the education and safety of employees at the two Corinth-based mills. Kimberly-Clark also worked closely with the local Mississippi Tobacco-Free Coalition of Alcorn & Tippah Counties. Project Director, Emily J. McGrath, was brought in to present general awareness information, as well as offer several free cessation services the employees could take advantage of if they were current tobacco users. The coalition also supplied informative brochures, Quit-

line signage, and other inspirational signage to remind employees of the health & financial benefits of quitting. Overholt excitedly told McGrath since the announcement of its plan to go tobacco-free, “We have had more than 10 employees quit using tobacco. That’s success in itself!” Overholt shared that the decision to become a tobacco-free facility is consistent with all other K-C Nonwovens mills across the U.S. On the other hand, this is the first

Kimberly-Clark Professional mill that has decided to become a tobaccofree facility. “We’re hoping that others will follow our lead,” stated Willie Gates, manager of mill services. If interested in learning more about becoming a “Smoke-free” or “Tobacco-Free” facility contact Emily J. McGrath at 662-284-8317. The Mississippi Tobacco-Free Coalition is sponsored by a grant from the Mississippi State Department of Health.

Daily Corinthian • Sunday, February 9, 2014 • 9A

Hosts feel slighted when left off their friends’ guest lists DEAR ABBY: My husband and I invite our friends for dinner quite often, and invitations are always accepted. Recently, I began to notice that we are never invited to some of their homes for dinner. I know entertaining isn’t for everyone, but they do entertain other people -- just not us. I’m not sure why this is. We would never go empty-handed. If we weren’t asked to bring a dessert or an appetizer, we would at least bring a bottle of wine to thank our hosts, and I’d help to clear the dishes and straighten the kitchen when the meal is over. Have you any thoughts as to why an invitation is never extended to us? -- NOT ON THE “A” LIST DEAR NOT: The problem may be that the couple is embarrassed that they can’t entertain you as lavishly as you have entertained them. Or, they may have never been taught that it is rude to accept people’s hospitality and not reciprocate in some way. Because they are friends, you should pose this question to them and ask for an honest answer. DEAR ABBY: I have been married for 19 years and this is the third time I have caught my wife cheating. I didn’t catch her “in

the act” because she disguised it behind “vacations with her girlfriends.” What happened was caught Abigail I sending Van Buren her some guy nude picDear Abby tures of herself and lying about having stayed at a friend’s house. (She had spent the night with a guy.) I have remained in this marriage because I wanted to raise all my kids before separating or divorcing. I am leaving eventually, but want to stay four more years to raise my last son. Is it immoral to lie and pretend like I want to work it out? I feel this is the best way not to damage my children. -- RESPONSIBLE DAD IN GEORGIA DEAR DAD: I don’t think you should lie. Instead, talk calmly with your wife and tell her that it’s clear to you that she isn’t satisfied in the marriage or she wouldn’t be doing what she has been doing. You might be able to accomplish what you want with your son through a joint custody arrangement -- or full custody, if your wife wishes.

That way, she could live her life as she apparently wants to, and so can you. DEAR ABBY: My next-door neighbor lets her two children, a 6-year-old boy and a 7-year-old girl, run around naked all the time. This includes playing in her front yard and in the street. I don’t want to seem like a prude or cause problems in the neighborhood, but let’s face it -there are perverts everywhere. At what age is it no longer acceptable for children to be nude in public? -- TAKEN ABACK IN MONTANA DEAR TAKEN ABACK: Children over the age of 3 should not be out in public with no clothes -- and no child should be playing outside that way without supervision. For that matter, clothed or not, for their own safety children should not play in the street. Your neighbor’s lack of attention is irresponsible and inappropriate. If you can’t make her see the light, then child protective services should be consulted. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Horoscopes ARIES (March 21-April 19). When you think of someone, it draws that person to you in the spirit of your thoughts. This principle will be clearly represented in today’s rather uncanny events. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You will become healthier and feel better, and not because of a magic pill or a wish granted, but because of hundreds of little decisions you’ll make in the days to come. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The best situations offer you a challenge. Let your natural optimism lead the way. You’ll sense you can somehow get on the inside, even though you can’t readily see the way. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Winston Churchill said, “Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.” Don’t give up. You’re close to winning this one. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Were you cut out for this job? Probably not. Most people are not

“cut out” for the modern world in general. But to be human is to adapt. Assume you have what it takes, and go for it. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Send your mind ahead of you by visualizing the top three priorities of the day. This exercise will help you stay focused on what’s important instead of being overly reactive to the stimulus of the moment. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Getting people to like you isn’t a problem you possess. Managing the people in your life -- that’s a skill you’d like to bone up on. Note: If your friends get along with one another, it will be easier. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You are who you choose to be. If your choice is aligned with your natural abilities, you’ll achieve success faster. But success is possible either way as long as you do consistent work and don’t give up. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Emotions are fleeting. That

doesn’t make them any less real, but when you take into account that they eventually will drift on by, it makes the bad ones bearable and the good ones all the more precious. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ve been so hard on yourself lately. What you call a mistake would actually be an acceptable outcome for others. You’ll achieve your own high standards once you relax. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The magic will happen soon enough. Until then, focus on building some momentum. It can be created through small, completed tasks. Five tasks ticked off the list, and life will start to lift you up. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your future happiness depends on nailing the specifics of an arrangement. Think through the deal you want now while you have the luxury of time. When the details pop to mind, write them down.

CHS group Ole Miss tops Missouri 91-88 earns grid accolades Associated Press


After compiling the program’s first unbeaten mark in Division 1-4A play and 14th straight playoff berth, three handfuls of Corinth Warriors were honored by division and Class 4A coaches as a whole. Three were tabbed Class 4A AllState by the Mississippi Association of coaches, highlighted by LB Kyoshi Agknew and P/K John Michael McFall as first-team selections Center J.R. Burns, the lone non-senior of the trio, was named to the second team. Corinth placed nine on the All-Division 1-4A first team and another seven on the second team after winning their first title and earning their third playoff appearance in their fifth year in the league. CHS was in 1-4A for the 1993 and 1994 seasons, before returning in 2011. Agnew, who starred at both linebacker and in the backfield, was named Most Valuable Player in the six-team conference. Other first-team selections included Kendrick Williams (RB), Bryce Spence (RB), Burns (C), Brandon Strickland (OL), record-setting sack artist Zantario Jacobs (DL), Jose Contreras (DB), Jay Jones (DB), and McFall, who tied the single-season team record with 12 field goals. Second-team honors went to firstyear QB Antares Gwyn, leading receiver Armad Wicks, offensive linemen Tairek Johnson and Luke Buffington; Bo Howell (DL), Deonte Keith (LB) and DB Quajae Fisher.

OXFORD, Miss. — Mississippi guard Marshall Henderson does not have the green light to take a 3-point shot. He has no light. “I heard some guy behind me in the front row telling me to shoot it,” said Henderson, who scored 29 points on eight 3-point shots in Saturday’s 91-88 win over Missouri. “That’s all I need to hear.” The Rebels (16-7, 7-3 Southeastern Conference) needed everything Henderson provided — 10 of 18 from the field, 8 of 15 from 3-point range and five assists — to record what Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy admitted, “a

Family affair The Dufour-Lapointe family swept the top two spots in the women’s moguls. Youngest sister Justine won gold and middle sister Chloe got the silver. Oldest sister Maxime also made it into the finals, where she finished 12th. The Canadians aren’t the first sisters to finish 1-2 at the Winter Olympics. Christine and Marielle Goitschel of France did it twice in Alpine skiing at the 1964 Innsbruck Games, and Doris and Angelika Neuner of Austria did it in luge at the 1992 Albertville Olympics.

Sochi’s first gold, slopestyle’s first games Sage Kotsenburg tamed the treacherous slopestyle course, getting the first gold medal of the Sochi Olympics. The American did it with a run that left the 20-year-old who talks like a surfer and rides like a purist momentarily stunned in disbelief. Staale Sandbech of Norway got silver while Canadian Mark McMorris, who nearly missed the finals because of a broken rib, surged to bronze as slopestyle made its Olympic debut.

“Huge. Just huge. It’s the only time we play them (Missouri) during the regular season,” Henderson said. “They’re a quality club with a high RPI and we needed it. I was able to get some good looks, but we had big games from everybody today.” Jarvis Summers and LaDarius White had 16 points apiece, while Anthony Perez added 11. The Rebels won the rebounding battle, 44-43, including game-high performances of 11 and 10 rebounds from Aaron Jones and Sebastian Saiz, respectively. Despite trailing by as many as 17 points in the first half and 50-35 at halftime, Mis-

souri put on a furious second half rally. Earnest Ross led the Tigers with 24 points, six rebounds and four assists and missed a 28-foot shot at the buzzer that could have forced overtime. Ross was complemented by Jordan Clarkson with 23 points, Jabari Brown with 20 and Ryan Rossburg with 11, all in the second half. “I thought the difference was our post players didn’t compete well in the first half and their press bothered us,” Missouri coach Frank Haith said. “In the second half, we took Please see OLE MISS | 11A

Huge rivalry game draws early tipoff BY H. LEE SMITH II

The third, final and rubber match of the 201314 season between the Biggersville and Corinth boys will get an early start on Tuesday. Due to what is expected to be an overflow crowd in the Lions’ Den, and the opportunity for WXRZ to cover the boys’ matchup between the defending Class 1A state champions and the eight-time defending Alcorn County Tournament champions, the schedule has been flip-flopped according to third-year Lion head coach Cliff Little. The boys’ game will start at 6, with the girls’ contest -- normally the lid-lifter in regular-season doubleheaders -- will follow. The Lions will enter play at 21-4 on the heels of their 41st straight regular-season 1-1A win. Corinth, which was idle Friday, stands at 20-4 having lost two of four -both to 1-1A foes. Those not being able to have a seat in the tight, but great atmosphere the Lions’ gymnasium, can tune in for the play-byplay provided by veteran commentator Jimmy Anderson. The girls’ contest will not be aired due to the station’s obligation to the Ole Miss basketball network. Please see TIPOFF | 11A

game we absolutely had to have. Marshall hits big shots.” Ole Miss enhanced their hopes for an NCAA Tournament bid with the win, with home dates remaining against Kentucky and Florida. The Rebels are 27-10 with a .729 winning percentage in SEC play since 2012, trailing only Florida for the league’s best mark. The Rebels remained alone in third place in the league standings and won for the third time in four meetings with Missouri (16-7, 4-6) over the past two seasons. The past two wins for the Rebels were turned on the game’s final possession.

STARKVILLE, Miss. — Frustrated with his talented young team, Kentucky coach John Calipari turned to a couple of rarely used veterans for a lift. Jon Hood and Jarrod Polson were more than happy to help. Julius Randle scored 16 points and fellow freshman James Young added 11 as No. 18 Kentucky beat Mississippi State 69-59 on Saturday. But it was Hood and Polson who were on the court when the Wildcats closed the first half on a 19-6 run that proved to be the game’s decisive stretch. Hood made a 3-pointer

during the rally — just his second of the season. Polson, a senior, had a couple of steals and rebounds. But more than that, Calipari said they brought energy to a team that sorely needed it. The veteran coach was both pleased and exasperated he had to go so deep on the bench to find that lift. “Today, the only time we could play hard was when I put Hood and Jarrod Polson in the game,” Calipari said. “I thought Dakari (Johnson) fought, but I thought the rest of us just went through the motions of playing. I just don’t get it. But that’s what happens when you’re a young

team.” Kentucky (18-5, 8-2 Southeastern Conference) has won three straight overall and seven in a row over Mississippi State. The Wildcats had an uneven game on offense but forced the Bulldogs into just 38.3 percent shooting (18 of 47) from the field. Calipari used an unorthodox lineup for much of the game because of ineffective play and foul trouble. Polson (30) and Hood (13) both had season highs in minutes played. Andrew Harrison fouled out after just 15 minutes in the game. The 6-foot-9 Randle was 8 of 13 from the field and

grabbed seven rebounds. Johnson started for the third time this season and added nine points and eight rebounds. Craig Sword had 12 points and grabbed five rebounds for Mississippi State (1310, 3-7), which has lost five straight. Gavin Ware and Trivante Bloodman added 12 points each while Roquez Johnson had 10. Mississippi State coach Rick Ray said Kentucky’s ability to grab offensive rebounds in the second half was a problem. “When we were able to get Please see KENTUCKY | 11A

No. 3 Florida tops Alabama 78-69 for 15th straight BY MARK LONG Associated Press

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — No. 3 Florida has won with defense most of the season. The Gators showed Saturday they can pull out games on the other end of the court, too. Scottie Wilbekin scored 16 points, leading all five starters in double figures, and Florida beat Alabama 78-69 for its 15th straight victory. The Gators handled the Tide for the second time in 16 days and extended a school record for consecutive home

wins to 29. “If you play defense the way we did tonight, you’re not going to win,” coach Billy Donovan said. “Thank God we had some offense today that helped us.” Florida (21-2, 10-0 Southeastern Conference) shot a blistering 62 percent from the field and finished with a season-high 22 assists. The Gators trailed by seven late in the first half before taking over the game in the paint and in transition. That opened things up on the pe-

rimeter for Wilbekin and Michael Frazier II. Wilbekin was 3-for-5 shooting from behind the arc, making all three in the second half. Frazier was 3 for 8 from the 3-point range. Frazier finished with 14 points, joining Wilbekin, Casey Prather (15), Will Yeguete (12) and Patric Young (11) in double figures. It was the first time all five of Florida’s starters topped 10 points since Nov. 21 against Middle Tennessee. “We have a balanced team,

and anyone can beat you on any given night,” Prather said. Prather, the team’s leading scorer, failed to reach double figures the last two games while dealing with a sprained left ankle. He returned to form against Alabama even though Donovan wasn’t sure he would play a few hours before the tip. Donovan gave Prather the option of playing or resting, and he chose to give it a go. “It’s got nothing to do with Please see FLORIDA | 11A

minister of his country cheering him on, Sven Kramer of the Netherlands set an Olympic record and defended his title in the men’s 5,000 meters in speeskating. The 27-year-old Dutchman flew around the big oval and won gold with a time of 6 minutes, 10.76 seconds. He easily beat the Olympic mark of 6:14.60 that he set in Vancouver. The powerful Dutch team swept the medals. Jan Blokhuijsen took the silver and Jorrit Bergsma got the bronze.


defensive rebounds, we were able to get out and do things in transition,” Ray said. “I think that’s where we’re the best.” For all of Kentucky’s obvious talent and NBA potential, the Wildcats haven’t been very good on the road this season, with a 3-5 record away from Rupp Arena before Saturday. They had another slow start against Mississippi State — even though the two-thirds full Humphrey Coliseum didn’t provide a particularly tough road environment. Kentucky scored the first six points, but the Bulldogs got going with a few penetration baskets by Bloodman. Sword’s two-handed dunk on a fast break gave Mississippi State an 11-9 lead. Kentucky methodically built a 32-23 lead by halftime. The Wildcats went on a 19-6 run to end the half, using the HoodPolson combination in the backcourt for most of it. “I’m always ready to play,” said Hood, a fifth-year senior. “I’m ready for the opportunity whenever it may come. I was able to make the most of it today.” The 6-5 Hood hit a 3-pointer from the corner — his first since Nov. 10 — to push the Wildcats ahead 30-21.

him not being a tough kid or he can’t play through pain,” Donovan said. “It gets more into the fact that he doesn’t feel confidence-wise that he’s capable of doing the things he knows he can do. When he gets to that place, he really gets mentally

taken out because he knows he can’t do certain things. “When he knows he can do things physically, it adds to his confidence. When he can’t move like he wants to move, I think he knows he’s putting our team in jeopardy, and that eats him alive and kills him.” Trevor Releford led the Tide

(9-14, 3-7) with 25 points on 7-for-10 shooting. He was 4 for 6 from behind the 3-point line and perfect on seven free throws. Releford scored 16 points in the first half, carrying Alabama for much of the afternoon. His 3-pointer put the Tide up 28-21, silencing the sold-out O’Connell Center.

Alabama shot 61 percent in the opening half and went 5 for 7 from behind the arc, giving the defensive-minded Donovan plenty to talk about at halftime. The Gators responded with an effective press, made 3-pointers and a heavy dose of post play that seemingly wore down the Tide.


The Rebels travel to Alabama for an 8 p.m. tip, and the CHS-BHS doubleheader was moved up to allow local coverage for the contest. Biggersville won the first meeting 55-53 at Corinth, defeating the Warriors’ on their home court for the first time since late in the

1999-2000 season. Corinth countered with a 40-38 overtime win en route to their record eighth straight, and 15 in 16 years, Alcorn County Tournament championship. The Lions last win at home against Corinth came in the 1998-99 season when they split two games, with CHS winning the first of a then-record

seven straight County Tournament. Both schools, who have qualified for the first round of the North Half Tournament on Feb. 25, close out regular-season play Friday. The Lions host Tishomingo County for senior night, while Corinth travels to Tupelo to continue its long-time rivalry with the Golden Wave.

portunity for Ross. “There were times I felt like we were just blowing them out by the way we were shooting,” Henderson said. “Then you’d look up and they were right there. Every game comes down to the wire for us. We embrace hard. We know it’s going to be that way.”

A dedication to innovation Developmental Industries marks 25 years BY ZACK STEEN

One of Corinth’s premier industries is turning 25 this year. Developmental Industries (DI) has grown from a small dilapidated building to a 64,000 square foot production facility located off US Highway 45. What DI does inside its walls isn’t a secret, no matter what some think. “People are constantly asking what we do,” said Marketing Coordinator Jonathan Rider whose grandfather, Lawrence, started the business in 1989. “I usually tell them, we’re just a big machine shop. Folks are normally happy with that answer.” But DI is much more than just a machine shop. The organization has become one of the leading regional tool and die facilities in the country working with worldwide industry leaders like 3M and Caterpillar. “Manufacturers come to us with a problem with a certain fixture or tool in their process,” said the 2001 Alcorn Central graduate. “We deliver a solution and figure out how to get the job done more efficiently. We have engineers and machinists that can come up with a better and faster way of getting that job done.” With 14 US Patents, DI has always been on the forefront of developing and inventing. Many of those patents are for the DI Roof Seamer. Rider’s father, Terry, and family created an idea for a new kind of roof seamer 25 years ago. A roof seamer is an electric self-propelled device widely used in the commercial construction business to attach a metal roof. “The roof seamer had been around for years,” said Rider. “Our success has been making it smaller, lighter and safer to use.” The rental of roof seamers has been big business for DI. “We have grown from around 25 to more than 300 seamers in rental,” added Rider. “We provide a good product and the best customer service in the industry.” A DI roof seamer has been used to put roofs on some important buildings including the US Mint in Denver and the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. “Last year, the US Open was hosted under one of

Todd Hight has worked for DI since 1993. He was hired as a machinist and is now the general manager. “I think our employees genuinely love working here,” said Hight. “We are more than acquaintances working in a common field. We are a family working towards common goals.” Hight says DI hires people who intend on retiring with the company. “Someone who comes to work for a paycheck gets exactly that,” said the Corinth native. “Our

employees come to work because they enjoy it and the paycheck just comes along with it.” CEO Terry Rider spends around a quarter of a million dollars each year on employee benefits. “He could easily put that money in his pockets, but he gives it back to the employees in benefits each year,” added Hight. Misty Kemp, who has worked as a die maker for two years, sums it up best. “DI takes care of us and we take care of DI,” she said. Donnie Vanderford of Corinth agreed. “I love working at DI,” he said. Kevin Thomas is the director of sales for DI Roof Seamers USA and Canada. He joined the DI

family three years ago after working in Sales Management for ITT/Cortelco for more than 25 years. “I’ve known Terry Rider for many years. He is a thinker and innovator and is always one step ahead of the market,” said the long time Corinthian. “When I started for DI, I found a company that truly cares about taking care of its employees.” Thomas says the workplace is quite unique. “DI is a great place to work and I think it shows in our productivity and

quality,” he said. “We are growing by leaps and bounds and the growth is driven by very dedicated and hard working employees.” Rick Hutcheson, who serves as the quality control supervisor, has driven from his home in Guntown every day for eight years. “Some of best people work at DI,” Hutcheson said. “No one ever says, ‘that isn’t my job.’ Everyone chips in and gets the job done.” Over the years, Terry Rider has shared some

of his success with the Crossroads. He often sponsors plays at Corinth Theatre-Arts and supports special projects at local schools. “He donated the land that the new north fire station sits on,” the youngest Rider said. “Biggersville Fire and Recuse now calls it home.” With happy customers and satisfied employees, DI can continue to move forward into the future. “Alcorn County will always be home for DI,” added Rider. “No matter what happens.”

Being a good wedding guest: Do’s and don’ts BY LISA A. FLAM Associated Press

Of Tiffany Schutt’s 250 wedding guests, one surely stood out. Not only was she not invited, but the young guest, a relative with whom the couple wasn’t particularly close, turned up in a white dress and a short and sexy one at that. In fact, she was one of five uninvited relatives whose names were added to invited guests’ response cards. Schutt, who married in Indianapolis, was flattered but also in disbelief that they so badly wanted to attend. “We are very laid-back, thankfully, so that day I took it in stride,” she said. “It just seemed not to be the best etiquette.” When it comes to manners, experts say wedding guests do well overall but are still causing headaches on a few fronts. “The No. 1 thing that I hear about from frustrated brides is guests not RSVPing, not RSVPing on time or RSVPing for more than one person,” said Anna Post, great-greatgranddaughter of Emily Post and co-author of the upcoming new edition of “Emily Post’s Wedding Etiquette.” “It’s all about the RSVP.” Blame it on the relaxed culture, busy lives or the hope of a better Saturday night offer, but some people just can’t get it together to mail the response

card back. And don’t get brides started on the guests who say they will attend, only to end up as no-shows. Brides and grooms might want to add a cushion of a week or so before they have to give a headcount to the caterer or venue so they can chase people down. New York wedding planner Marcy Blum suggests adding an enclosure with the invitation listing an email address people can use to RSVP or ask questions. Other do’s and don’ts for guests: ■ Dress: Don’t be too informal, and avoid wearing anything that’s too sexy, too over-the-top or too white. Blum notes a resurgence of women wearing white to weddings, and says brides don’t appreciate that on their big day in white. ■ Gifts: Some regional traditions may call for bringing the gift to the wedding, but in general they are best sent ahead of time, avoiding the possibility of theft and the hassle for the couple of hauling them home. ■ Behavior: Arrive early, and stay to dance, mingle and converse at dinner. “Being social and engaged is one of the best ways to be a good guest, along with not getting too drunk, or drunk period,” Post says.

After 22 years, Leno says goodnight to ‘Tonight’ BY FRAZIER MOORE AP Television Writer

NEW YORK — Make way for Jimmy Fallon. “Tonight Show” host Jay Leno ended a stellar if sometimes stormy run Thursday night with high emotion at concluding what he termed “the greatest 22 years of my life.” Calling himself “the luckiest guy in the world,” Leno went out on top, which was where he stayed for most of his stretch as the successor to “King of Late Night” Johnny Carson. His exit, not entirely by choice, now clears the deck for yet another chapter of the 60-year-old talk show, with Fallon taking over as “Tonight” moves back to New York from its longtime Los Angeles home on Feb. 17. “You’re very kind,” Leno told his audience at the start of his last monologue. “I don’t like goodbyes. NBC does. I don’t care for them.”

He had said goodbye to “The Tonight Show” before. His first departure came in 2009, when he was briefly replaced by Conan O’Brien but reclaimed the show after a messy transition and O’Brien’s lackluster ratings. In ‘09, he was moving to a prime-time show on NBC; this time he’s out the door, and has said he’ll focus on comedy clubs and his beloved car collection. “I don’t need to get fired three times,” he cracked. “I get the hint.” Looking sharp in a black suit and bright blue tie, Leno was greeted by a standing ovation from the VIP audience. The typically self-contained comic betrayed a bit of nervousness, stumbling over a few lines in his monologue as he looked back comically. “When I started hosting, Justin Bieber wasn’t even born yet,” Leno marveled. “That’s why we


called those ‘the good old days.’” The worst part of leaving NBC’s employ, he joked: “Now I’ll have to sign up for Obamacare.” But later Leno was serious, even choking up, when he shared that he’d lost his mother the first year he became “Tonight” host, his dad the second and then his brother. “And after that I was pretty much out of family. And the folks here became my family,” he said of the crew and staff of “Tonight.” The tender moments had a heightened effect on a show that was mostly aiming for laughs, with traditional monologue jokes, clips from old shows and a wild assortment of celebrities helping him close the book. Leno brought his show full circle with Billy Crystal, who was his first guest in May 1992 and his last guest Thursday. Crystal played ringmaster at one point, calling on Oprah

Winfrey, Jack Black, Kim Kardashian, Carol Burnett and others for a musical tribute to Jay with a “Sound of Music” song parody. “So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodbye. If Fallon tanks you’ll be back here next year,” sang Jack Black. “The Big Bang Theory” star Jim Parson’s contribution: “We’ve watched you when we’re weary. Your great success is called the big chin theory.” In a videotaped segment, celebrities offered career advice to Leno. “Why would I give a (expletive) about what he does? He’s a grown man,” said Mark Wahlberg. President Barack Obama, like other politicians a favorite target of Leno’s, struck back in his clip. “Jay, you’ve made a whole lot of jokes about me over the years, but do not worry, I’m not upset,” Obama said, adding that

Richard Nixon had resigned in the Watergate scandal. Leno’s appearance didn’t happen. “Making me the last guy screwed by Nixon,” Leno said. Garth Brooks performed his touching song “The Dance” before Leno’s likewise touching farewell remarks. “Now that I brought the room down,” Leno joked, he asked Brooks to lighten it up. Another Brooks song, “Friends in Low Places,” closed out the show. Leno, 63, has said he plans to continue playing comedy clubs, indulging his passion for cars and doing such TV work as comes his way — other than hosting on latenight. “I’m real excited for Jimmy Fallon,” Leno told his audience. “It’s kind of fun to be the old guy and sit back here and see where the next generation takes this great institution.”

Review: NBC’s Olympics online deserves silver medal BY ANICK JESDANUN AP Technology Writer


he was making Leno the U.S. ambassador to Antarctica. “Hope you have a warm coat, funnyman.” Crystal sang Leno’s praises during the show, saying the late-night host made America feel a little better at bedtime and invoking his predecessor, Johnny Carson. Leno’s “Tonight” tenure was second in length only to Carson’s 30 years. “You were handed the baton by one of the alltime greats. But once it was in your grasp, you ran the race,” Crystal said. He and Leno, longtime friends, reminisced about the old days, with Leno recalling how Crystal and other comedians visiting his town, Boston, stayed in Leno’s apartment. “You’re calling it an apartment. I’m calling it a bomb site,” Crystal joked. Leno told how he was poised to make his network debut on Dean Martin’s show in 1974 when news came that President

NEW YORK — NBC comes close to gold in delivering the Winter Olympics online from Sochi, Russia. Although NBC has scaled back on a few fronts compared with previous years —and still refuses to show the opening ceremonies live — things have improved considerably since 2000, when online “video” meant still images grabbed from NBC’s video feeds. Fast forward to the London Summer Games in 2012, when every single competition and medal ceremony was available live. NBC has extended that to the Sochi games, which began Thursday. Every sport is available live at and the NBC Sports Live Extra apps for Apple, Android and Windows Phone devices — the Windows version just arrived Tuesday. By contrast, during the previous Winter Games, NBC largely limited live video to curling and ice hockey. On Thursday, I was able to watch the short program in team figure skating shortly after 10:30 a.m. EST, or 7:30 p.m. in Sochi. NBC didn’t make me wait until its television broadcast in the evening. By then, I might have learned of results from Facebook or the multitude of websites offering non-video coverage. The day’s coverage actually began at 1 a.m. EST. with qualification rounds in men’s slopestyle. It’s a form of snowboarding in which skiers display technical skills and creativity as they maneuver down a slope peppered with jumps and rails they must slide across. I know that because NBC had a short video explaining the sport. Of course, I didn’t actually get up at 1 a.m. to watch the Olympics. That would be crazy. Instead, my alarm went off at 4 a.m. Less crazy. I didn’t make it out of bed until closer to 5 a.m.,

though, when qualification rounds for women’s slopestyle began. It’s unfortunate that NBC doesn’t allow me to watch from the beginning. I have to catch the live stream in progress. I also cannot rewind and pause video on the website, while capabilities vary on the apps. There was a lot of down time watching events on opening day. I had to wait more than an hour between the two groups of skiers in women’s slopestyle. The live video continued, but it was mostly a distant shot of the slope. It was like watching paint dry. I would have wanted to use that time to catch up on events I missed while sleeping. But NBC isn’t making replays available until about 2:30 p.m. CST each day. For some events, that’s more than half a day later. The exceptions will be in lower-profile sports such as curling and ice hockey. Another limitation: I’m able to watch just one video at a time. During the 2008 Summer Games in Beijing, I was able to watch four — one on the main screen, plus three in smaller windows to the side. Although there weren’t any overlapping events Thursday, that’s coming. The alternative is to watch a second feed on a phone or tablet. Live video and fullevent replays are limited to subscribers of pay TV services, such as Comcast, Verizon and DirecTV. If you’ve dropped cable to save money, you’re limited to 30 minutes of video on the first day you watch, and five minutes a day after that — enough to get a taste of what you’re missing. Without a subscription, you can still get highlights and other features for free. There are actually two Olympics-related apps from NBC. Live Extra gets you live video, while schedules, results and news stories are on a separate app, NBC Olympics Highlights and Re-

sults. NBC continues its practice of using a lot of video from world feeds produced for countries that don’t have their own broadcasters. These are broadcast-quality feeds, with graphics, commentary and replays chosen by the production crews. It’s nice to see nonAmericans compete, something that’s typically missing from NBC’s television broadcasts unless they are the top contenders. But it also feels as though NBC is just throwing these videos online. NBC will address this partly by expanding an online channel called “Gold Zone.” With multiple events going on, it can be difficult to keep track of what to watch. “Gold Zone” takes you to the best of what’s happening. NBC offered that in London, but “Gold Zone” will get more of a broadcast feel in Sochi with hosts and a studio. It won’t start until Saturday, though. In a sense, the online experience is beginning to replicate television, with more content made available to you. Consequently, the online features feel less interactive and more difficult to seek out. The events schedule now feels more like a television listing. Events are displayed chronologically, rather than as a grid that lets you jump around from day to day, sport to sport. Results are buried in the schedule, rather than collected in one place under a “results” tab. If you have a streaming device such as Roku or Chromecast, you’re largely out of luck. I managed to get video on the big-screen TV only by using an Apple TV to mirror the display on my Mac computer. That feature is disabled on iPhones and iPads. NBC wants the online experience to be like television, without replacing television. In doing so, it’s adding constraints that make online viewing a silver-medal effort at best.

Discovery to air wingsuit flight off Everest Associated Press

NEW YORK — Discovery Channel plans a live broadcast of the first wingsuit flight off the summit of Mount Everest. High-altitude climber Joby Ogwyn will make the attempt in May, and Discovery announced Wednesday that it will be there to cover it.

The network will air a live two-hour broadcast showing the California native as he battles conditions on the way to the summit of the world’s tallest mountain, then takes the plunge. His custom-made wingsuit will be equipped with cameras to capture the descent of more than 10,000 vertical feet at

speeds exceeding 150 mph. This main event will be preceded by shows about Ogwyn’s extensive training and preparation. Discovery and TLC Networks boss Eileen O’Neill called Ogwyn’s planned feat “history in the making.” No date has been specified for the broadcast.

There are five basic taste categories the taste buds perceive: Sweetness is recognized by the presence of sugar. It is very predominant in desserts, but also creates great contrast with salty and sour. Sourness can be added through a variety of acidic foods, such as vinegars and citrus fruits. Salt enhances flavor, intensifies sweetness and suppresses bitterness. Bitterness may be found in a variety of foods, including chocolate and coffee. When not in balance, bitter can be offensive, but in very small quantities it adds richness and depth. Umami is described as a savory, often mouthwatering taste perceived when eating meat, fish, cheeses like parmesan and bleu and certain vegetables such as asparagus.

Coffee Toffee Heath Cupcakes Makes about 24 cupcakes

•Coffee increases the bitterness of the chocolate for richer, deeper flavor •Toffee adds rich buttery notes and caramelized sugar flavors

Cupcakes 1 cup water 2 tablespoons instant coffee 1 package (16.2 ounces) Devil’s Food cake mix 3 eggs 1/3 cup vegetable oil Ganache 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream 2 tablespoons instant coffee 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips 1 package (8 ounces) English toffee bits Preheat oven to 350°F. Line muffin pan with baking cups. In a small bowl, combine water and instant coffee; stir to dissolve. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, coffee, eggs and oil. Beat with electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds, scraping bowl frequently. Then, beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Fill baking cups 2/3 full with batter. Bake 16 to 18 minutes or until toothpick, inserted into the center, comes out clean. Cool cupcakes in pan 5 minutes. Remove from pan and place on cooling grid to cool completely. For ganache, combine cream and instant coffee in small saucepan; stir to dissolve. Warm over medium heat until cream begins to steam; do not boil. Remove from heat and add chocolate chips; stir until smooth. Cool slightly. Place 1/2 cup ganache in disposable decorating bag. Using the handle of a wooden spoon, create a small hole in the center of each cupcake; pipe in ganache. Dip tops of cupcakes in remaining ganache; lightly shake off excess. Immediately dip cupcake in toffee bits.

Coffee Toffee Heath Cupcakes



essert is an indulgence, and when you delight in the taste, texture and aroma of a decadent sweet treat, you savor every bite. It is easy to get lost in the flavor and fragrance of rich chocolate or creamy caramel. But what happens when chocolate or caramel are paired with different flavors, like salty, sour or savory? Spurred by curiosity, the food scientists in the Wilton Test Kitchen dug deeper into unusual flavor pairings to enhance the taste experience. While the terms “taste” and “flavor” are often used interchangeably, there is a difference between the two. The taste of a food is what the taste buds perceive, while the flavor of a food is the combination of these tastes, plus the aroma and the other sensations. Treatology™ is the science of blending different flavors and tastes to create dishes that are an experience all on their own. Look for more taste, flavor and inspiration at

Sweet and Salty Caramel Cashew Brownies Makes 15 brownies
