Daily Corinthian Vol. 118, No. 36

BY ZACK STEEN Chilling memories of ice storm 1994 filled the minds of Crossroads residents this past weekend as the National Weather Service issued a winter weather watch. The storm was predicted to dump more than 3 inches of snow and ice on the area today. The NWS recalled the watch early Monday, issuing a new statement calling for only a slight chance of frozen precipitation. John Moore III, a meteo-

rologist with the NWS, said a strong arctic cold front combined with an upper level disturbance might produce a dusting for North Mississippi, but new models showed the heaviest precipitation chances would be much further south. “Central Mississippi will see the greatest chance,” Moore said. Today’s local forecast calls for a 20 percent slight chance of snow with a high of 34. Tonight could see snow or sleet. A 40 percent chance is possible with a low of 27.

Wednesday’s forecast calls for a 30 percent chance of sleet or freezing rain with highs in the high 30s and lows in the 20s. This week marks the 20-year anniversary of ice storm ’94, the major ice storm that crippled North Mississippi in February 1994. The ice storm was very unusual in size and the amount of precipitation that fell. It was the result of an abnormally large “overrunning” of moisture that moved into cold air ahead of a front, according to

Preliminary pageants headed for catwalk BY KIMBERLY SHELTON

Actress Marilyn Monroe once said that a smile is the best makeup any girl can wear. So, start perfecting your walk and flash those pearly whites. The Miss Mississippi Preliminary pageants are quickly approaching. The Miss Alcorn County and Outstanding Teen Alcorn County and the Miss Historic Crossroads and Outstanding Teen Historic Crossroads Pageants, all preliminaries to the Miss Mississippi Scholarship Pageant will be held on Feb. 15 at the Corinth Coliseum Civic Center. Corinth has held the preliminary pageants for the past 29 years and is excitedly awaiting this year’s pageants. “It’s a fairytale for any girl,” said coordinating assistant, Joyce White. “They have a wonderful year of traveling and learning ahead.” Up until 5 years ago, contestants were between 17 to 24 years old. However, Miss America started an Outstanding Teen Pageant making it possible for girls 13 to 17 years old to participate in the scholarship program, which raises money for The Children’s Miracle Network. “We are all volunteers,” said White. “Everyone from the coordinators to the people who help get the girls ready.” “Regardless of whether they

The heaviest amounts of precipitation was reported in North Mississippi, as the storm dumped close to 6 inches of ice on the Crossroads.

win, every girl on stage is my girl,” she added. “This is something that runs in our blood. I get all excited.” Contestants usually travel from Vicksburg to Orlando, Fla., but this year, the pageant is returning home to the Atlantic City boardwalk. “Mississippi is very much welcomed because we are one of the top leaders in scholarship money,” said White. “We give money to our non-finalists as well.” Interviews will begin on Saturday at 1 p.m. Each girl will be given a time to meet with the judges for a short presentation in which each contestant will share her platform, community service work and show how much she knows about the city and state that she is to represent. There is a $100 sponsor fee for all girls who enter the preliminary pageants. The fee goes straight into the scholarship funds. Doors will open two hours before the show which will begin at 7:00 p.m. Tickets will be $10 for adults and $5 for students. There is no charge for pre-schoolers. “It is such a wonderful experience for the girls and young women, said Director, Margaret Henry. “We invite everyone to come out and be a part of it.” (If interested, contact: Margaret Henry-662-396-1667 or Joyce White-662-287-2293.)

Where love and faith cross paths with murder is the point you will find local author Pat Trainum. “Shadows of the Past” – penned under the writer’s maiden name of Patricia Bradley – takes readers on a journey of characters Taylor Martin and Nick Sinclair. Set in Logan Point, Miss., Taylor is a psychology professor and criminal profiler who prides herself on being able to solve any crime. “The one crime she desperately wants to solve is what happened to her father,” said Trainum of her debut novel. “He disappeared and she wants to know why, but as she stalks the truth of the past, someone is stalking her.” Nick, who pens mystery novels for a living, is also dealing with a search of his own. Following the death of his wife, a tragedy he believes he could have prevented, Nick sets out to find the only family he has left.

“Nick realizes he can’t protect his family,” said Trainum. “He has to trust God to do that.” When the two characters cross paths, Nick only seems to find trouble. “God is watching over us even when it doesn’t feel like it,” said the Corinth writer in explaining what she wants readers to take from the publication. “Our self worth comes from him.” “Shadows of the Past” has garnered several awards. The novel won the 2008 Maggie in the Inspirational category. It also took home first place in the 2012 Touched By Love and Daphne du Maurier contests. “Shadows of the Past” was a 2012 Genesis award finalist and was bronzed in the Frasier contest. “Each book teaches me something,” said the former abstinence educator whose second book in the series – “A Promise to Protect” – is due for release in October. “It’s about taking characters to different levels so readers can relate … if readers do not care about the character, they will put the book down.” “Shadows of the Past” has re-

ceived a good review from USA Today. “Fans of Dee Henderson and Brandilyn Collins will find a kindred voice in newcomer Patricia Bradley’s well-crafted romantic suspense debut and should watch for what crime comes next to Logan Point,” said the review. Trainum has also been named an “author to watch” along with getting several four and five star ratings. “Writing is the hardest work I have ever done,” said the 69-year-old author. “To me, writing is watching a movie in my head.” Several of 34-year writing veteran’s short stories have also been published in Woman’s World. Trainum will have a book signing on Saturday at BooksA-Million in Corinth. The event is set for 2-4 p.m. Books are available at Books-A-Million, Walmart, Amazon, Barnes & Noble and LifeWay. “I have always loved suspense and finding out who did it,” she said. “My advice is to learn the craft in whatever you want to do then trust God … honoring Him through my writing is my top priority.”

ex-trooper abuse case The Associated Press

ABERDEEN — The state of Mississippi is asking to be dismissed defendant in the federal civil lawsuit that alleges former Highway Patrol Trooper Christopher Hughes used excessive force while on duty as a law enforcement officer. John Hawn of Saltillo argues in the civil lawsuit that Hughes beat him after he failed to stop at a roadblock Hughes was conducting. Attorney General Jim Hood argued in the motion filed Wednesday that Mississippi Commissioner of Public Safety Albert Santa Cruz is protected from the lawsuit by sovereign immunity. Trial is set for Oct. 6 in Aberdeen. Hughes is currently serving a 33-month federal sentence after he pleaded guilty in 2013 to depriving a woman of her civil rights by beating her in the Lee County jail.

without water. Roads were impassable. The fearful sound of cracking and crashing could be heard as strong winds pushed ice-laden trees and limbs to the ground. A state of emergency was declared and the area experienced gasoline and food shortages. Businesses and schools were shutdown for up to two weeks. Parts of Alcorn County would not see electricity restored for up to three weeks.

The storm only lasted around 36 hours, but caused catastrophic damage that took the area months to recover. Signs of damage were still visible one year later. Mississippi reported $1.3 million in urban tree loss and $500 million in utility damage. More than $3 million in damage was caused in the five states effected, nine people were killed and more than two million customers were without power at the height of the storm.

that history of consistent musical longevity. “Dr. Lyman Mitchell really had a passion for bigband swing,” he noted, “and his legacy is this outstanding organization. He really meant a lot to the members – and to UNA – and we are proud to have been associated with him.” A highlight of the concert promises to be Jones’ arrangement of “The Story of Jazz,” a musical history of the jazz form and its many genres, including New Orleans Dixieland, ragtime, Chicago Dixieland, boogiewoogie, swing, bebop, cool jazz, funk, fusion, Latin jazz and even third-stream Jazz. “ ‘The Story of Jazz’ is a real treat for the students and the audience alike,” Jones explained. “We’ll take a single melody, which is based on the blues, and perform it in various styles to demonstrate how jazz music has changed through the years. All the contrasting styles are still around today and have influenced virtually every form of popular contemporary music and even classical music. It is amazing to hear how the approach to jazz changed from region to region throughout the United States during the 20th century.” The concert program will also include a salute to swing master Benny Goodman, the music of Glenn Miller, Artie Shaw, Chuck Mangione, Gordon Goodwin, Harry James, Count Basie, Duke Ellington and more. “We have a very talented group of student performers this year,” Jones concluded. “Many will be featured as soloists during various portions of the concert. Additionally, our vocalist, Miss Kayla Flannagan of Athens, will be featured on several outstanding arrangements by Dave Roberson, including Billy Joel’s ‘Just the Way You Are.’ “ Admission is $15, $5 for students (must show I.D.) and free for military and children under the age of 10. Tickets can be purchased online at www. (service fee will apply), at Kennedy-Douglass Center for the Arts in downtown Florence, or at the door.

FLORENCE, Ala. — The University of North Alabama Studio Jazz Band will celebrate the music of love and the romantic spirit of Valentine’s Day with a special public performance at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 13, at Norton Auditorium on the UNA campus. The Shoals Area Big Band will join the UNA Ensemble as special guests for “Love and All That Jazz,” an evening of love songs and popular swing-music standards. Founded by the late Dr. Lyman Mitchell in 1979, the Big Band includes UNA professors, former UNA band members, local business owners, studio musicians, music educators and several first-class musicians from outside the Shoals. “The Shoals Area Big Band is a special group of musicians like none other,” according to Dr. Lloyd Jones, an associate professor of music and UNA’s director of bands. “The members enjoy coming together and entertaining audiences with the uniquely American art form – jazz, and more specifically, big-band swing.” Throughout its history, the Big Band has raised more than $80,000 in scholarship funds for the UNA band program. The group includes three original members: Dr. Jimmy Simpson (lead alto saxophone and clarinet), former chair of the UNA music department; Dr. Edd Jones (trumpet and arranger), former director of UNA’s band program; and UNA graduate Edsel Holden (trumpet and vocals). Many other current members joined the Big Band soon after its formation, including Mitch Rigel (drums), Terry Ownby (lead trumpet), Rick Burks (saxophone) and Dr. Lloyd Jones (saxophone and current leader). “Still other members have joined by filling in as substitutes during rehearsals,” Lloyd Jones explained, “and as positions became available, they gained membership as regular performers. The more seasoned players have helped the younger players become strong performers through the years, and that tradition has lasted for 35 years.” Jones added that he knows of no other big band in the region with

Guest Columnist

Reflections of ice from 20 years ago BY WILLIAM MCCULLIN Guest Columnist

The ice storm of 1994 was one of the most beautiful sights I had ever seen. Every tree branch, every telephone wire, every bench and birdbath was covered in a beautiful layer of ice. I was fascinated by the ice until the next day when I heard the first breaking limb. It sounded like a small cannon had fired in the distance. The hushed silence that a layer of ice and snow had created was broken by the sound of limbs breaking off and falling to the ground. The limbs fell on the wires and then the wires fell. That peaceful silence became ominous when there was no radio, television, or telephone service due to the fallen wires. I felt isolated. Several older people at church told the story of a previous ice storm with much the same effect that lasted for over a week. In the olden days, they said, they would take a horse’s curry comb and cut the bristles down, fasten those to the bottom of their shoes, and use them to walk on the ice. We, of course, had no curry combs in 1994, so we had to walk the best that we could. Many people fell on the ice and broke their arms, legs, or collarbones. Everyone knew that salt was the way to melt ice on concrete. What we didn’t know was that table salt was not the right kind to use, because table salt will dissolve concrete. Several sidewalks and steps were permanently pitted when people put table salt on the ice. Because of the damage to the power lines, there were many people who lost electrical power for heating. Even fire place inserts use electricity for the blowers. Fortunately, I heat with propane and the house stayed warm during that time, but other people who used electricity were facing a very cold prospect. Many had to move in with friends to stay warm. Portable kerosene heaters were in great demand at hardware stores. Of course, that also meant a search for a source of kerosene. As the week wore on, the food in refrigerators and freezers started to spoil, so people had to begin cleaning them out. Long lasting damage to the trees became evident after the ice began to melt. As people cleared the debris of fallen tree limbs, many realized that the tops of trees had also broken out completely. A lot of these “topped” trees died during the next year or two. Twenty years later you can still see a tree here and there that was deformed by the ice storm of 1994. As the weather warmed, pipes that had not been heated started breaking. Houses were flooded when water pipes broke. Floors and ceilings were ruined. Plumbers worked overtime. Hardware stores did a booming business. Insurance agents were swamped with claims. The beauty of the ice storm was transformed into a dangerous and complicated disaster that took many years to repair. (Corinth resident William McMullin is Northeast Regional Library system director.)

Prayer for today Gracious Father, thou knowest what I am and the condition of my life. May I seek thy will for me. Grant that I may never struggle for consolation through indulgence and indolence, but in my sorrow and failure may I reach out for thy enduring comfort. Amen.

A verse to share “And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.” -- Deuteronomy 6:6-7

House seeks to end self-destruct switch JACKSON — A figurative self-destruct switch is turned on at many state agencies in Mississippi. No time bombs are ticking in the office buildings that overlook the Capitol. But laws that authorize many agencies specify a date that the law will be repealed and the agency will cease to exist. Those repealers are traditionally one of the ways that the state’s powerful Legislature has kept departments and commissions on a short leash. Because agencies must return every few years to have their operating authority renewed by the Legislature, lawmakers get a guaranteed chance to make changes in an agency’s mission or pressure agency heads to operate differently. The power of the repealer was illustrated in 2013 when Democratic lawmakers used an effort to renew the state Medicaid agency to push Republicans to expand the Medicaid program and add another 300,000 low-income people to its rolls. The additional coverage is an option under the federal health overhaul

that President Barack O b a m a signed in 2010. Unable to get the votes Jeff Amy in the House to renew Columnist Medicaid during the regular session, Gov. Phil Bryant was forced to call a special session to renew Medicaid authorization. Lawmakers voted to renew the program only in June, two days before the program would have run out. During the special session, House Republican leaders tried to remove the repealer from Medicaid, but Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves and the Senate put it back in. They’ll be debating Medicaid again this year, because the agency is supposed to dissolve on July 1. Precedent suggests a court could keep the agency alive, at least for a short time, if necessary. But, burned by the Medicaid experience, House Republican leaders have decided to turn off the selfdestruct sequence at some agencies. They’ve proposed

removing repealers on various agencies and laws, as well as some reverters — measures that take away authority to spend or borrow money. “It was a policy decision on the agencies that were going to be here,” said House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Jeff Smith, RColumbus, explaining that House Republican leaders no longer see the need for routine repealers on parts of state government that have existed forever. “This is very innocuous,” Smith argued. But if the overall effort is successful, such a move would be a significant — and voluntary — surrender of power from Mississippi’s traditionally strong Legislature to its traditionally weak executive branch. House Democrats see it as another effort to run over the minority. With repealers, any member gets a chance to offer an amendment on the floor to alter an agency or add a new responsibility. But without the repealer, they would have to rely on the goodwill of a committee chairman to

bring forward a bill to do what the member wants. “The only reason we get to address the needs in other areas is because there was a reverter or there was a repealer,” said Rep. Bo Eaton, D-Taylorsville, argued last Wednesday before the House. “These repealers are for you, so you can address issues that affect your people.” Arguments by Eaton and other Democrats successfully defeated an effort to remove the reverter from the Emerging Crops Fund, which makes low-interest loans to farmers to build chicken houses. House Bill 381, which contained the language, was held for further action by the House. Some other bills removing repealers have passed the House, though. They likely face a hard road in the Senate, where Reeves likes to keep a close eye on state agencies. Until he changes his mind, lawmakers will leave the self-destruct switches on.

‘Alone Yet Not Alone’ vs. Academy’s ‘ethics’ In a world where Woody Allen can get a lifetime achievement award at the Golden Globes at the same time his adopted daughter accuses him of sexually abusing her when she was a child (Allen has repeatedly denied it), and where a film “The Wolf of Wall Street” sets a record for use of the F-word, it is a wonderment that an obscure, low-budget film called “Alone Yet Not Alone” has had its Best Original Song Oscar nomination withdrawn for allegedly violating ethical rules. The Los Angeles Times writes that Cheryl Boone Isaacs, president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, “told The Times that the ‘key point’ in the academy’s nullification of (songwriter Bruce) Broughton’s nomination was its violation of Rule 5.3, requiring that the credits of composer and lyricist be removed from the DVD of eligible songs sent to members of the music branch. “‘The idea,’ Isaacs says, ‘is that people are voting solely for the song and not who wrote it.’ By emailing branch members, Broughton, a former academy governor and current member of the music branch’s executive committee, violated that anonymity.” Big-budget films spend large amounts of money

campaigning for Oscars with full-page ads in Variety and other trade pubCal l i c a t i o n s , Thomas as well as glitzy parties Columnist for Academy members. Studios send DVDs “for your consideration” to members of the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA). Is any of that campaigning anonymous? How does a low-budget film with far fewer resources get noticed, if not by campaigning? Why does emailing voters, even if a technicality was breached, violate the rules when splashy ads, parties and the mailing of DVDs to Academy members do not? One clue may be in the visceral reaction to the film itself from the secular-progressive left. It is a movie made by a Christian group. Despite a record of large profits and high TV ratings for films with a Christian message, they continue to embarrass some filmmakers, who apparently think Americans spend their days swearing at one another, having promiscuous sex, shooting people, blowing

up stuff and driving fast. In a smarmy article on The Daily Beast website titled “Bible Thumpers’ Oscar Fail,” the film is characterized as having been made by an independent group headed by a “sugar daddy of the religious right” and members of “the right-wing evangelical filmmaking world.” Maybe the film should be rated “W” for wholesomeness and its message about God not abandoning people in distress. Does the secular left fear such a film might lead some people to rely on a power higher than the federal government? It’s doubtful any of the film’s critics have seen the movie as it had only a oneweek run last September in selected cities to qualify for Oscar consideration. A wider release is scheduled for this summer, but the secular left only has to hear “evangelical,” “conservative” and above all “Christian” to set them attacking like rabid dogs. If anyone cares about the film’s plot at this point, the website Yahoo! Movies describes it as “ alleged true-life tale from 1755 of two young sisters kidnapped by Native Americans after a raid on their family farm.” The girls maintain their faith, which helps them endure and overcome their

circumstances. The production company, Enthuse Entertainment, based in San Antonio, Texas, describes itself as making “God-honoring, faith-based, family-friendly films that inspire the human spirit to seek and know God.” Given this parentage, it’s a miracle the song was nominated. The title song is sung by painter, author and speaker Joni Earackson Tada, a quadriplegic, who is known and respected among many evangelicals. Whether “Alone Yet Not Alone” deserves an Oscar should be up to the voters, not the Academy hierarchy. Whatever its merits, the title sounds more appealing than the 2005 Best Original Song winner, “It’s Hard Out Here for a Pimp.” Maybe the only bad publicity is no publicity. The controversy over this song has lifted the film from obscurity. Regardless, the Academy should restore the song’s nomination because of the clear advantage in money, promotion -- and, yes, campaigning -- that other nominated songs have enjoyed.

Nation Briefs Associated Press

Congress reports no big breakthroughs WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Little more than a week after Groundhog Day, the evidence is mounting that lawmakers have all but wrapped up their most consequential work of 2014, at least until the results of the fall elections are known. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a lot of things on our plate,â&#x20AC;? House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said recently when asked what Congress will be busy with this year, but he predicted no breakthrough accomplishments on immigration, taxes or any other area. Immigration legislation is hardly the only area where inaction is the likeliest outcome. A Senate-passed bill has fallen into the congressional equivalent of a black hole in the House, where conservative critics cite a changing series of reasons for not wanting to take action. Initially, they said they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to vote on a bill because they oppose amnesty for immigrants living in the country illegally. Then they observed it would be a political mistake to shift focus away from their own opposition to the health care law, which unites them, and turn it onto an issue that divides them. Most recently, Boehner, who has said repeatedly he wants to pass an immigration bill, has joined others in citing a lack of trust with Obama as a reason for inaction.

If immigration legislation is moribund in the House, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, DNev., has made it clear he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t intend to seek passage of a second Obama priority, this one a bill to facilitate passage of trade deals with Europe and Asia. The legislation is opposed by large segments of organized labor, the very unions that Democrats will be counting on to pour money and manpower into their bid to hold control of the Senate in the November election. Republicans need to gain six seats to win a majority. They say they increasingly are bullish about their prospects, what with the country generally pessimistic about the future, Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favorability ratings well below the levels of his re-election campaign and controversies afflicting the presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health law.

Parachute accident kills Utah woman A Utah woman attempting a parachute jump near Zion National Park died when her parachute failed to open, park officials said. Amber Bellows fell about 2,000 feet to the ground Saturday afternoon. The 28-year-old had been attempting the jump from Mount Kinesava, in the southern part of the park famous for its soaring red rock formations. Bellows hiked to the top of the mountain Saturday morning with her husband, 29-year-old

Clayton Butler. The Salt Lake City couple had married just two weeks before. Bellows jumped first, around 4 p.m., but her parachute did not open. Her husband jumped after her but could not reach her body. It took him two hours to hike down the mountain and notify park officials. Officials began a helicopter search on Sunday morning and found Bellowsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; body by 10 a.m. Park officials said Bellows had been an experienced BASE jumper. BASE stands for Building, Antenna, Span, Earth â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the different platforms used by jumpers. BASE jumping is banned in Zion, and this is the first time a jumper has died. Â

First West Nile virus case in Mississippi JACKSON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Mississippi State Department of Health is reporting the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first human case of West Nile virus for 2014. The reported case is in Hinds County. The state health department only reports laboratory-confirmed cases to the public. In 2013, Mississippi had 45 West Nile cases and five deaths. State Epidemiologist Dr. Thomas Dobbs says while it seems surprising for a case to be reported given all the winter weather the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had this season, it serves as a good reminder that the virus can occur yearround.

Boston-area hotels fill fast for marathon

Trial date pending in Grenada death

BOSTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Hotels in the Boston area already are almost booked to capacity more than two months before the first Boston Marathon since two explosions at the finish line last year, tourism officials say. About 36,000 runners are expected to compete in the April 21 race, 9,000 more than last year. That includes about 4,500 who were stopped by officials before completing the race after the pressure cooker bombs went off, killing three people and injuring more than 260. Interest from families, fans and the media also is expected to be high, putting additional strain on hotels.

GRENADA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Grenada County Circuit Court records show one of the men facing a capital murder charge in the death of Grenada Police Capt. John Wayne Haddock has been competent to stand trial. Documents filed this past week show Kyle David Wendt was examined by a forensic psychologist at the Mississippi State Hospital in Whitfield and found competent. A trial date is pending. Authorities say Wendt was driving the vehicle that struck Haddock as the officer attempted to lay spikes across Highway 8 West to stop a high-speed chase, on Oct. 7, 2011.

Also facing a capital murder charge is Thomas Leland Lee of West Monroe, La. Wendt is from Colorado Springs, Colo. Both are being held without bond in the county jail. Â

Cold weather taxes natural gas system OLIVE BRANCH â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The extremely cold weather this winter has put people in Olive Branch on notice that the pressure capability of the natural gas system needs improvement. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been about a month since the first severe cold snap, when a smattering of homes and businesses began to experience low pressure, and less heat. With everyone using more heat, the system was taxed. Demand was too great at some points, particularly on the edges of the system. There also was concern about the future, as the growing community results in more homes

and businesses on the gas system. The Commercial Appeal reports Mayor Scott Phillips has city workers examining the system at critical points. Â

Exhibit dedication set at Camp Shelby HATTIESBURG â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A new exhibit at the Mississippi Armed Forces Museum at Camp Shelby will be dedicated Thursday to the late Air Force Reserve Lt. Col. David Anthony Williams. Williams worked with Mississippi Power Company from 1966-2004. Williams served as a reconnaissance pilot with the Mississippi Air National Guardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 186th Aerial Reconnaissance Group in Meridian from 1964-1974. He transferred to the Air Force Reserve in 1974 and retired in 1991. Williams was killed in an aviation accident in 2012. The materials for the exhibit were provided by his widow, Carol Williams.Â

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Officials say a Honolulubound Alaska Airlines flight was forced to return to San Jose, Calif., after a power problem. Alaska Airlines spokeswoman Bobbie Egan says Flight 837 touched down safely at Mineta San Jose International Airport around 9:40 a.m. Monday, a little less than two hours after it took off. It was able to taxi to a gate under its own power. There were no reports of injuries. Egan says the flight was carrying 132 passengers and six crew members, who will be put on another plane slated to leave San Jose at 10:45 a.m. She says the power problem was temporary and affected a redundant navigation system, but the captain decided to turn around out of an abundance of caution.

Kraft Singles to lose artificial ingredients NEW YORK — Kraft is removing artificial preservatives from its most popular individually wrapped cheese slices, in the latest sign that companies are tweaking their recipes as food labels come under greater scrutiny. The change affects the company’s Kraft Singles in the full-fat American and White American varieties, which Kraft says account for the majority of brand’s sales. Sorbic acid is being replaced by natamycin, which Kraft says is a “natural mold inhibitor.” Kraft’s decision comes as a growing number of Americans try to stick to diets they feel are natural. That has prompted a number of food makers to change their recipes. The new Kraft packages come stamped with a red circle noting they have no artificial preservatives or flavors.

Mississippi State University honors alumni Mississippi State recognized 1964 physical education graduate and Delta businessman Michael W. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mikeâ&#x20AC;? Sanders of Cleveland as its national alumnus of the year during the MSU Alumni Association 2014 awards banquet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are proud to salute Mike Sanders on behalf of Mississippi State University for his success as an entrepreneur and for his loyal lifelong connection with his alma mater,â&#x20AC;? said Jeff Davis, executive director of the MSU Alumni Association. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of our nearly 128,000 living alumni, Mike is a distinguished selection for Alumnus of the Year.â&#x20AC;? Sanders is the former longtime president and CEO of Jimmy Sanders Inc., one of the MidSouthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest agricultural input supply and distribution businesses. He is now semi-retired following a 55-year career in various capacities with the company. Since its 2012 sale to Pinnacle Agriculture Holdings, he now serves as a consultant for the company and is a member of Pinnacleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board of directors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is with pleasure that I accept this great honor bestowed upon me by Mississippi State University,â&#x20AC;? said Sanders. â&#x20AC;&#x153;MSU taught me life lessons I

have carried with me, and I am forever grateful for my association.â&#x20AC;? Since 1969, Mike has been married to the former Nan Long, a Delta State University English graduate and an artist. He has three children, Michael W. Sanders and Amanda Sanders Turner, both of Cleveland, and Ellen Sanders Voelkel of Baltimore, Md., and six grandchildren. The Sandersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; philanthropy extends to the arts, the community, and their universities. At Mississippi State, Sanders has served on the boards for the Alumni Foundation, the MSU Foundation and the Bulldog Club. Since graduation, he has been a member of the MSU Alumni Association and affiliated with the Bolivar County Alumni Chapter. Sanders attended Mississippi State on a dual scholarship for football and track. Although his football career ended due to injuries early in his college days, Mike ran track and sprinted for most of his time at MSU. In his sophomore year, he and fellow members of the MSU track team competed to win the 1962 SEC championship. Over his lifetime, Sanders has generously supported MSU athletics and

Stocks end slightly US suspect may be targeted for drone strike higher on quiet day The Associated Press

BY KEN SWEET Associated Press

NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The stock market ended up more or less where it began Monday in a quiet day for investors who had little economic data or company earnings to react to. Analysts said the market is likely to remain in a holding pattern until traders hear from Janet Yellen in her first testimony before Congress since becoming head of the Federal Reserve. After spending most of the day lower, the Dow Jones Industrial average turned slightly higher in late trading and closed up 7.71 points, or 0.1 percent, at 15,801.79. The Standard & Poorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 500 index rose 2.82 points, or 0.2 percent, to 1,799.84 and the Nasdaq composite rose 22.31 points, or 0.5 percent, to 4,148.17. The tech-heavy Nasdaq was pushed higher by Apple, which rose $9.31, or 2 percent, to $528.99. Apple rose after the activist investor Carl Icahn said he has dropped his shareholder proposal to force Apple to increase its stock buybacks. Apple recently disclosed it had bought $14 billion of its own stock. Yellen, who started her term as head of the central bank this month, is scheduled to testify before Congress on Tuesday and Wednesday. Yellenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comments will be closely watched, especially after recent disappointing economic news and the Fedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to further reduce on its monthly bond purchases. Despite recent volatility in the market, investors believe that Yellen will likely continue her predecessorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan to continue winding down the Fedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic stimulus program. Last week, the Fed cut its bond purchases to $65 billion a month. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We should expect more volatility as the Fed transitions away from its (economic stimulus plan),â&#x20AC;? said Doug Cote, chief investment strategist at ING Investment Management. Investors got a respite

from a recent deluge of earnings and economic reports. Wall Street remains in the middle of earnings season, when the bulk of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s publicly traded companies report their quarterly results. Only two out of the 55 companies announcing this week reported their results Monday: the toy maker Hasbro and the industrial conglomerate Loews Corp. Hasbro rose $2.27, or 5 percent, to $52.36. Hasbroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s said its fourthquarter profits fell from a year ago, due to a slow holiday season, but it also boosted its dividend and issued a bright outlook for 2014. Loews, which owns a variety of businesses including insurance, oil drilling and hotels and resorts, fell $1.92, or 4 percent, to $43.26. The company reported a loss of 51 cents a share, due to some one-time charges tied to its ownership of insurance company CNA Financial. So far this quarter, 344 members of the S&P 500 index have reported their results. While the earnings results have been solid â&#x20AC;&#x201D; up 8.1 percent from a year ago, according to FactSet â&#x20AC;&#x201D; many companies have been lowering their forecasts for 2014. Fifty-seven companies have cut their forecasts for 2014, while only 14 have raised them, according to Factset. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The guidance for the upcoming quarters has not been good at all,â&#x20AC;? said Sam Stovall, chief equity strategist with S&P Capital IQ.

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; An American citizen who is a member of al-Qaida is actively planning attacks against Americans overseas, U.S. officials say, and the Obama administration is wrestling with whether to kill him with a drone strike and how to do so legally under its new stricter targeting policy issued last year. The CIA drones watching him cannot strike because heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a U.S. citizen and the Justice Department must build a case against him, a task it hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t completed. Four U.S. officials said the American suspected terrorist is in a country that refuses U.S. military action on its soil and that has proved unable to go after him. And President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new policy says American suspected terrorists overseas can only be killed by the military, not the CIA, creating a policy conundrum for the White House. Two of the officials described the man as an alQaida facilitator who has been directly responsible for deadly attacks against U.S. citizens overseas and who continues to plan attacks against them that would use improvised explosive devices. But one U.S. official said the Defense Department was divided over whether the man is dangerous enough to merit the potential domestic fallout of killing an American without charging him with a crime or trying him, and the potential international fallout of such an operation in a country that has been resistant to U.S. action. Another of the U.S. officials said the Pentagon did ultimately decide to

recommend lethal action. The officials said the suspected terrorist is well-guarded and in a fairly remote location, so any unilateral attempt by U.S. troops to capture him would be risky and even more politically explosive than a missile strike. Under new guidelines Obama addressed in a speech last year to calm anger overseas at the extent of the U.S. drone campaign, lethal force must only be used â&#x20AC;&#x153;to prevent or stop attacks against U.S. persons, and even then, only when capture is not feasible and no other reasonable alternatives exist to address the threat effectively.â&#x20AC;? The target must also pose â&#x20AC;&#x153;a continuing, imminent threat to U.S. personsâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the legal definition of catching someone in the act of plotting a lethal attack. The Associated Press has agreed to the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request to withhold the name of the country where the suspected terrorist is believed to be because officials said publishing it could interrupt ongoing counterterror operations. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the classified drone targeting program publicly. House Intelligence

committee chairman Mike Rogers, R-Mich., complained last week that a number of terrorist suspects were all but out of reach under the administrationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new rules that limit drone strikes based on the targetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nationality or location. Two of the U.S. officials said the Justice Department review of the American suspected terrorist started last fall. The senior administration official confirmed that the Justice Department was working to build a case for the president to review and decide the manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fate. The official said, however, the legal procedure being followed is the same as when the U.S. killed militant cleric and former Virginia resident Anwar al-Awlaki by drone in Yemen in 2011. The official said the president could make an exception to his policy and authorize the CIA to strike on a onetime basis or authorize the Pentagon to act despite the possible objections of the country in question. The Justice Department, the Pentagon and the CIA declined to comment. If the target is an American citizen, the Justice Department is required to show that killing the person through military

action is â&#x20AC;&#x153;legal and constitutionalâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in this case, that the Pentagon can take action against the American, as the administration has ruled him an enemy combatant under the Authorization for Use of Military Force, a resolution Congress passed a week after the 9/11 attacks to target al-Qaida. Mary Ellen Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connell, a professor of international law at the University of Notre Dame, said there is a school of thought that the Obama administrationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drone policy is â&#x20AC;&#x153;lawless.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why should the Justice Department issue the execution warrant for anyone abroad? The fact that they give extra scrutiny only because heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an American exacerbates this negative impression,â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connell said. U.S. drones have killed four Americans since 2009, including al-Awlaki, who the administration said was actively plotting to kill U.S. citizens. U.S. officials said both Senate and House appropriators have blocked funding to transfer the CIAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stealth RQ-170 drone fleet to the Pentagon. Lawmakers have also objected to the shift, arguing that the CIA has more experience flying drones.

Lawmakers: UAW threatens VW incentives Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Republican lawmakers in Tennessee on Monday threatened that the state could turn off the spigot of incentives for Volkswagen if workers at the German automaker’s plant decide this week to approve union representation. State Senate Speaker Pro Tem Bo Watson in a news conference in Chattanooga called the United Auto Workers campaign at the plant “un-American.” “Should the workers at Volkswagen choose to be represented by the United Auto Workers, any additional incentives from the citizens of the state of Tennessee for expansion or otherwise will have a very tough time

passing the Tennessee Senate,” he said. About 1,500 out of the 2,500 employees at the plant are eligible to vote in the three-day union election that begins Wednesday. Volkswagen announced earlier this year that a new SUV model will be built either in Chattanooga or in Mexico. Gov. Bill Haslam’s office did not immediately respond to requests for comment. The Republican governor last year insisted that state incentives are not contingent on the union being rejected at the plant. But state House Speaker Beth Harwell, a Nashville Republican and close Haslam ally, told The Associated Press on Mon-

day that she shares concerns about a UAW victory at the plant. “It would definitely put those (incentives) in jeopardy,” she said. “That would jeopardize a very good arrangement for Volkswagen to locate here.” “And I hate that, because I want Volkswagen here, we’re so proud and honored to have them here,” she said. “But unionization is a huge setback for our state economically.” Volkswagen received a more than $500 million incentive package as part of its decision to build the plant in Chattanooga in 2008. The UAW vote would be the first step toward creating a German-style “works council”

at the plant, which would represent both blue and white collar employees on issues such as working conditions and plant efficiency, but not wages or benefits. Under Tennessee law, workers would not have to join the union to be represented. German law gives labor representatives half the seats on the Volkswagen’s supervisory board, where some powerful members have raised concerns about the Chattanooga plant being alone among the company’s large factories without formal labor representation. The UAW vote would be the first step toward creating a German-style “works council” at the plant which represents both

blue and white collar employees on issues such as working conditions and plant efficiency, but not wages or benefits. Under Tennessee law, workers would not have to join the union to be represented. U.S. Sen. Bob Corker, who last year said Volkswagen would become a “laughingstock” for entering negations with the UAW, had announced last week that he would curtail public commentary on the process while the election was underway. But in response to what he called the UAW’s attempts to use his position to try to silence other critics, the former Chattanooga mayor said he will hold a news conference Tuesday to “ensure my position is clear.”

Yellen’s words to be studied for policy clues Potential cost Associated Press

WASHINGTON — When Janet Yellen makes her first public remarks Tuesday since succeeding Ben Bernanke as Federal Reserve chair, her every word will come under scrutiny. Will she embrace all of Bernanke’s policies? When will the Fed raise short-term interest rates? Is she worried about the economy or the stock market? Don’t expect many direct answers when Yellen addresses a House Financial Services Committee hearing. Her replies will most likely boil down to a single overarching point: The Fed will keep all its options open depending on how the economy evolves. Even so, anticipation of Yellen’s testimony is running high, given concerns about the economy and the job market, turmoil in global markets and uncertainty about her direction at the Fed. After a rocky 2014 so far, nervous investors will be paying particularly close attention. They want to know whether Yellen might deviate from the message the Bernanke Fed sent late last year: That Fed officials think the economy’s outlook is bright enough to withstand a slight pullback in their stimulus but that rates should stay low to fuel a still-subpar economy. The occasion is the Fed’s twice-ayear report to Congress on interestrate policy and the economy. After Tuesday’s House hearing, Yellen will address the Senate Banking Committee on Thursday. Next month, she’ll preside over her first Fed

meeting and hold her first news conference. Yellen, 67, the first woman to lead the Fed in its 100 years, was sworn in Feb. 3 for a four-year term. As vice chair for three years and long a leading economist, she has given speeches and addressed congressional committees. But as Fed chair, considered the world’s most powerful economist post, the spotlight will burn much brighter. “A new Fed chair’s first testimony is always a testing period,” said Diane Swonk, chief economist at Mesirow Financial. Below are issues Yellen will likely be pressed on this week. For each issue, here is what investors would like to hear and what Yellen is likely to say.

Outlook for economy ■ Investors: The Dow Jones industrial average has sunk nearly 5 percent this year in part because sectors of the economy like manufacturing have shown signs of weakening. Investors worry that 2014 may not be the breakout year for the economy that many had foreseen. They hope Yellen will signal that she expects a more robust economy in 2014 after 4? sluggish years of recovery from the Great Recession. ■ Yellen: She won’t likely disappoint. It’s the nature of Fed leaders to err on the side of optimism. A downbeat message could derail confidence and potentially send markets tumbling. Yellen will probably

refer to what the Fed said in a policy statement last month: Encouraging trends in consumer spending and business investment suggest that growth was picking up — at least before 2014 began. Yellen will surely be asked about the January jobs report, which showed lackluster hiring for a second straight month. She may stress the solid hiring in sectors like manufacturing and construction.

Emerging markets ■ Investors: Investors have yanked money from emerging economies from Turkey to Argentina. They’ve done so in part because they fear that a pullback in the Fed’s stimulus will send U.S. interest rates up and draw investor money from overseas in search of higher returns. Currency and stock values in emerging markets have dropped. The Fed made no mention of this development in its most recent policy statement, leaving investors unsure how concerned Yellen and the Fed might be. ■ Yellen: She may point out that some developing nations have moved to support their currencies by boosting rates and pursuing economic reforms. She may also note a sometimes-forgotten fact: That the Fed’s mandate is to maximize employment and keep prices stable in the United States, not the rest of the world. But Yellen will likely assure investors that the Fed is monitoring emerging markets for any signs that turbulence there might be harming the U.S. economy.

Economy may be stuck in slow lane for long run Associated Press

WASHINGTON — In the 41⁄2 years since the Great Recession ended, millions of Americans who have gone without jobs or raises have found themselves wondering something about the economic recovery: Is this as good as it gets? It increasingly looks that way. Two straight weak job reports have raised doubts about economists’ predictions of breakout growth in 2014. The global economy is showing signs of slowing — again. Manufacturing has slumped. Fewer people are signing contracts to buy homes. Global stock markets have sunk as anx-

iety has gripped developing nations. Some long-term trends are equally dispiriting. The Congressional Budget Office foresees growth picking up through 2016, only to weaken starting in 2017. By the CBO’s reckoning, the economy will soon slam into a demographic wall: The vast baby boom generation will retire. Their exodus will shrink the share of Americans who are working, which will hamper the economy’s ability to accelerate. At the same time, the government may have to borrow more, raise taxes or cut spending to support Social Security and Medicare for those retirees.

Only a few weeks ago, at least the short-term view looked brighter. Entering 2014, many economists predicted growth would top 3 percent for the first time since 2005. That pace would bring the U.S. economy near its average post-World War II annual growth rate. Some of the expected improvement would come from the government exerting less drag on the economy this year after having slashed spending and raised taxes in 2013. In addition, steady job gains dating back to 2010 should unleash more consumer spending. Each of the 7.8 million jobs that have been added pro-

vided income to someone who previously had little or none. It amounts to “adrenaline” for the economy, said Carl Tannenbaum, chief economist for Northern Trust. And since 70 percent of the economy flows from consumers, their increased spending would be expected to drive stronger hiring and growth. “There is a dividing line between a slow-growth economy that is not satisfactory and above-trend growth with a tide strong enough to lift all the boats and put people back to work,” said Chris Rupkey, chief financial economist at Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi. “That number is 3 percent.”

of tourism tax rebates balloons Associated Press

JACKSON — Developers are rushing to stake a claim to Mississippi’s tourism tax development incentives, even as lawmakers must decide whether to extend the tax credits. The Mississippi Development Agency has now awarded up to $155 million in potential subsidies for three malls since the sales tax rebate program was widened last year to include “cultural retail attractions.” Under the terms of the law, which was expanded to cover shopping centers in 2013, the state will return 80 percent of sales taxes collected at a development over 10 years, until the total collected reaches 30 percent of the construction price. If lawmakers don’t act to extend the tax credits, they will run out on July 1. House Bill 1233, sponsored by Rep. Rita Martinson, R-Madison, would extend the program by three more years. After a lawmaker questioned the bill last week, it was moved to the bottom of the House calendar. Thursday’s deadline for House consideration could pass before lawmakers get to it. Martinson said she thinks incentives have been helpful, but said there’s some sentiment to let the lures run out. “We might even think about letting it go,” she said. “It might be at the point to sit back and see what we’ve done.” Many economists voice doubts about subsidizing retail development. Good Jobs First, a nonprofit group that is skeptical of business subsidies, is particularly critical of giving money to retailers, saying they don’t pay well or create spinoff jobs. The first retail development to qualify for the widened incentives was Pearl’s Outlets of Mississippi, where Spectrum Capital could get up to $24 million of its $80 million investment back. That mall opened in November. Since then, Memphis developers have won certification for the proposed Outlet Shops of the Mid-South in Southaven, which could get $34 million of its $113 million construction cost. Now, the third and largest development has been certified. CBL & Associates has been approved for up to $96.3 million of a projected $321 million investment for the Gulf Coast Galleria, which it hopes to build in D’Iberville. MDA has also certified developers of a proposed Westin hotel in downtown Jackson to collect up to $15.7 million from their proposed $52.3 million investment. Hotels, museums and other tourist attractions were already eligible for the rebates before last year, but may not reach the 30 percent ceiling. Jackson’s King Edward Hotel had only collected $1 million of up to $19.5 million by the middle of 2013. Through mid-2013, the program had paid out only $20.8 million. Of that, almost 75 percent went to another stage of the Pearl development including a Bass Pro Shops store and the Trustmark Park baseball stadium.

What’s for dinner? The farm bill has big impact Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Look no further than your dinner plate to understand how the new farm bill affects you. About 15 percent of the money in the legislation signed into law Friday by President Barack Obama will go to farmers to help them grow the food you eat. Most of the rest of the money in the almost $100 billion-ayear law will go to food stamps that help people buy groceries. Five ways the farm law affects what is on your plate: ■ Where you shop: The law includes incentives for farmers markets and makes it easier for food stamp recipients to shop there. ■ The main course: Most of the subsidy money benefits producers of the main row crops — corn,

soybeans, wheat, cotton and rice. Most corn and soybeans in the U.S. are grown for animal feed, so those subsidies keep costs down for the farmers and the livestock producers who buy feed for their beef cattle, hogs and chickens. Corn is an ingredient in hundreds if not thousands of processed foods you buy in the grocery store. ■ Fruits and veggies: Most fruits and vegetables don’t get generous subsidies like the staple crops do. But starting in the 2008 farm law, fruit and vegetable producers began getting more of the share, including block grants, research money and help with pest and disease mitigation. Money for these “specialty crops” was expanded in the new law. ■ Milk: It’s unclear if the price

of a gallon of milk will be affected by the law. Unlike the rest of agriculture, dairy farmers have had more of a rough go in recent times, facing price collapses and shuttering dairies in the past five years. To prevent that from happening again, the bill gets rid of current subsidies for dairy and creates a type of insurance that pays out when the gap between the price farmers receive for milk and their feed costs narrows. ■ Dessert: The law leaves intact the government’s sugar program, which supports prices and protects growers from foreign competition. Candy makers and other food and beverage companies have said government protections for sugar farmers artificially restrict supplies.

Husband has right to be suspicious WIZARD OF ID





Dear Annie: A few years ago, my wife went out of town for a conference. A month after she returned, I was on our computer and noticed that she hadn’t logged out of her email. My curiosity got the best of me, and I saw that she had traded emails with an old boyfriend. I then discovered that the two of them had met while she was at the conference. One of her last emails to him said, “I still have feelings for you.” On the advice of a marriage counselor, I was direct with her about it. She claimed nothing happened and that they only met for dinner and said she would never contact him again. She also was angry that I had invaded her privacy. Last year, my wife and I hit a rough patch. I got suspicious of her behavior and checked her cellphone. I saw that she had exchanged multiple texts with this same guy. Again, she claims nothing happened, the texts were innocent and I had no right to snoop. My wife knows the password to my email, and I never lock my cellphone. All of my communication is an open book. Meanwhile, she now locks her phone and has multiple email accounts. I understand the need for a little privacy, but I don’t believe you should be hiding things in a com-

Annie’s Mailbox mitted relationship. My wife is angry that I don’t trust her, and I’m having trouble dealing with this. Any advice? -- Broken Up Dear Broken: We don’t trust your wife, either. She promised not to contact this man again and then did so and hid it from you. She locks her phone and has multiple email accounts to which you apparently do not have the passwords. Worse, to deflect blame, she accuses you of snooping. There may not have been a sexual affair, but it definitely sounds like an emotional attachment. Please go back to your counselor and ask your wife to come with you. The two of you need a refresher course on how to make your marriage work and regain trust. Dear Annie: I own a small casual restaurant in a small town. People order at the counter and then take their food to a table to eat. In the past couple of years, I’ve noticed more people bringing in food from other establishments and eating at our place. I don’t understand

why people think it’s OK to take advantage of an eating establishment like this. Don’t they realize that the owner is paying for the incidental items they use, such as napkins? Don’t they see that they are taking up space that could be used by people who are actually helping to pay the bills incurred by the restaurant? Am I looking at the situation in the wrong way? -- No Free Lunch Dear No: We suspect most people have no clue that this is an inconvenience to you. There are some establishments that allow people to sit for extended lengths of time without ordering, but we know of none that encourage you to bring your own food.

Best friend’s past abuse haunts family gatherings DEAR ABBY: My best friend of 20 years, “Claire,” has suffered bouts of depression ever since I have known her. She recently confided to me that her brother had repeatedly sexually abused her as a child. When she went to her mother for help, her mother told her she needed to “thank God that it was happening because it would make her a stronger person.” Her mother is dead now, but her father is still alive. I am furious at him for allowing the abuse to happen under his roof. Abby, the family acts like it never happened! Claire invites her dad to events we plan together like birthdays. How do I attend knowing what I know? I don’t want to sit across a table from him. My husband is an abuse survivor and feels even more strongly than I do. It has made get-togethers miserable for us. Should we just smile and pretend we don’t know because we can’t fight my best friend’s fight for her? How do we get over the anger? -- CONFUSED IN OKLAHOMA DEAR CONFUSED: Years ago, someone explained to me that depression is anger turned inward. Your friend is enduring these bouts of depression because she was never allowed to express her anger where it belonged -- at her brother and her mother. Whether the mother ever

told her husband what was going on, or whether it was the continuation of a long family tradition Abigail of sexual is Van Buren abuse, something we don’t Dear Abby know. But if you haven’t suggested to Claire that she could benefit from counseling, you should. As to you and your husband participating in these family gatherings, my advice is to stop doing it. Celebrate special occasions with your friend right before or after these occasions; many people have pre- or postbirthday get-togethers, and that’s what I recommend in a case like this. DEAR ABBY: I recently became involved with a longtime female friend of mine when she was in town. I have always loved “Miranda” as a friend, but now I also feel attracted to her as a potential perfect match. The problem is she lives far away. We keep in touch almost daily. I love that, but it makes me miss her, and I end up thinking about her all day, which doesn’t help. She says she has feelings for me, too, but “the timing isn’t

in our favor.” What can I do to go about my day without letting thoughts of Miranda rule my brain? I am 27 and haven’t felt like this about anyone before. We’ll see each other in a couple of months and the time couldn’t be crawling by any slower. Abby, are long-distance relationships even worth trying? -ANXIOUS IN COLORADO DEAR ANXIOUS: Of course they are. As the saying goes, “nothing ventured, nothing gained.” Years ago, couples who were separated by distances courted via the mail. In fact, some of them wrote beautiful poetry and love letters that are classics. (Check out the letters of Victorian writers Elizabeth Barrett and Robert Browning.) Couples separated by war before the invention of the Internet also managed to nurture relationships that led to marriage. So consider yourself lucky that you and Miranda can be in touch every day, even though at this point it’s frustrating. As to the problem of her dominating your thoughts all day, a way to deal with it is to STAY BUSY. (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). You’re not afraid of working hard. You’ve done it before, and you know that it’s worse in your mind than it is in reality. Yes, the idea of hard work is scarier than the work itself. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It feels strange to be praised for something you did so long ago that you can hardly identify with it anymore. And yet, you can’t expect everyone to be up-to-theminute with your life, so you’ll gladly accept the good will. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The most important task of the day looms large in your mind, and yet there’s something you’d rather be doing. Well, who said it was the most important, anyway? If it wasn’t you, your resistance may be warranted. CANCER (June 22-July 22). True, planning will be key to the final execution of your project. But too much planning is a danger, too, as the plan takes up so much energy that there’s little left to take action.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Love is distracting, especially if it’s new and unexplored. Your heart, body and mind are eager for discovery. How far to take this and when to rein it in will be the main questions of the day. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You can work solo for hours and hours and never get lonely. In fact, you prefer to work alone now. A deep and abiding respect and love for yourself will carry you through. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The role you play in a person’s life will be greatly amplified if that person happens to be a child. The young, inexperienced and impressionable need a positive example, and today you’re it. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The fearlessness you show through your physical body is experienced in your emotional body as excitement and flow. You’ll make several decisions very quickly. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The job on the table is

mysterious; it involves unknown elements and a different skill set from the one you currently possess. Don’t let that stop you, and don’t wait until you know what it’s about to get started. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). What’s the use of doing good work if nobody sees it? You don’t like to promote yourself, but now you’ll be doing the world a real disservice if you don’t show people what you’ve been doing. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). People only lie when they are afraid. There’s someone who isn’t being totally truthful with you. Think about what this person is afraid of. If you can address that fear and reduce it, you’ll get the truth. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Are the lines in the road rules or guidelines? Your opinion on this matter is reflected in the way you navigate the road of a relationship. Under what circumstances would you dare to cross the lines?

Van Horn: Flatter ball seams aren’t sufficient Associated Press

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arkansas coach Dave Van Horn has reservations about the new baseball the college game plans to use beginning in 2015. Speaking at the Razorbacks’ media day, Van Horn said the new ball — which features flatter seams — is only a start on the path toward using the same baseball the professionals use. “I think it’s going to be the same ball with flat seams,” Van Horn said. “We need to use a flat-seamed ball that’s a little harder.” The NCAA Division I baseball committee voted unanimously in November to allow conferences to adopt the new ball for regular-season play next year. The ball, shown by researchers to fly farther, will be used during the NCAA baseball tournament in 2015. A raised-seam ball is now used in the college game. Dialed-back bats were put into play in 2011, leading to a drop in offense to levels not seen since the wooden-bat era before 1974. An American Baseball Coaches Association survey last fall found that 87 percent of coaches who responded wanted to make the change in balls. “We’re not using the rock baseball that they use in the big leagues, or in the minor leagues,” Van Horn said.

Pistons try to stay focused after firing Associated Press

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — Chauncey Billups is nearing the end of a distinguished career and he has seen enough to realize that change can come at any time in the NBA. Still, when the Detroit Pistons fired Maurice Cheeks after only 50 games as coach, he was surprised. “I think, first of all, everybody was a little caught off guard,” Billups said. “It’s the NBA. You never know what’s going to happen.” That’s especially true when it comes to Detroit coaches, who have been coming and going with alarming frequency. It’s been a decade since Billups led the Pistons to the 2004 NBA title. They haven’t made the playoffs Please see PISTONS | 13

Olympic highlights: German doubles up Associated Press

For the second Winter Olympics in a row, Maria Hoefl-Riesch of Germany won the gold in the women’s super-combined, which consists of both the downhill and the slalom. Nicole Hosp of Austria got the silver and Julia Mancuso of the United States got the bronze for her fourth career Olympic medal in Alpine skiing, twice as many as any other U.S. woman.

Short-track results Canada got its first gold medal of the games as veteran short-track speedskater

Charles Hamelin won the 1,500 meters for his third different Olympic title. Russia got its first short-track medal ever, thanks to Viktor Ahn, who captured the bronze for his adopted country. He won three golds for his native South Korea, but after missing the Vancouver Olympics, he changed his name and moved to Russia.

NYET for Bjoerndalen Norway’s Ole Einar Bjoerndalen just missed what would have been a record 13th Winter Olympic medal, finishing fourth in the men’s biathlon 12.5-kilometer pursuit. The

event was won by Martin Fourcade, giving France its first gold. His teammate, Jean Guillaume Beatrix, picked up the bronze. Bjoerndalen has several more shots in Sochi to win the medal that would put him one ahead of crosscountry skiing great Bjoern Daehlie.

The brothers not Karamazov Michel Mulder edged his teammate Jan Smeekens by 12-thousanths of a second in the men’s 500, and Mulder’s twin brother Ronald got the bronze as the Dutch scored another speedskating sweep.

The Netherlands also went 1-2-3 in the men’s 5,000 and took the top spot in the women’s 3,000 at the Sochi Games.

40-year hoops reunion Northeast to recognize 1973-74 Tigerettes BY BLAKE D. LONG NEMCC Sports Information

BOONEVILLE — Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame inductee Bonner Arnold made a bold statement in 1973 when women’s basketball was reborn at then-Northeast Mississippi Junior College. “I feel like it will grow stronger and in future years I think it will contribute to Northeast,” Arnold said while serving as Northeast’s athletic director. The legendary hoops coach could not have been more right. The Lady Tigers have claimed the school’s only national championship, three National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Region 23 titles, 10 Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges (MACJC) State Tournament crowns and are 16-time North Division champs. Now, the team that started what has become one of the Magnolia State’s most decorated programs on the hardwood is getting back together. The 1973-74 edition of the

Lady Tigers will hold a 40year reunion on Monday, February 17 on the Booneville campus. Ingomar’s Shirley White, one of 13 members of that squad, felt the time was perfect to bring a group of ladies that she described as being great teammates together again. “It’s important to me that we renew those friendships,” she said. “We were sisters and

because of that camaraderie we developed over that year with us being the first team and us setting that standard we became a close knit family.” Women’s basketball as an intercollegiate sport was abolished by each of the state’s two-year colleges following the 1954-55 season. Arnold resurrected the program that he had led as coach in the late 1940s and early

1950s and tabbed Millard Lothenore as the new headman of the Lady Tigers, or Tigerettes as they were called then. Lothenore constructed a roster for that campaign comprised solely of individuals from Northeast’s local fivecounty district.

7 more Vols cited on alcohol-related charges Associated Press

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Seven more Tennessee football players have received citations in connection with a party that led to the arrests of two current players and one former Volunteer. A police report filed by the Knox County Sheriff’s Office states that linebackers Curt Maggitt, Jakob Johnson and Jalen Reeves-Maybin were cited for providing alcohol to underage people. Offensive lineman Dontavius Blair, defensive lineman Malik Brown, cornerback Justin Coleman and defensive end Dimarya Mixon were cited for underage consumption. Linebacker A.J. Johnson and former linebacker Dontavis Sapp were arrested on charges of purchasing alcohol for a person underage

and resisting arrest. Nose tackle Danny O’Brien was charged with criminal impersonation, resisting arrest and underage consumption of alcohol. Johnson and Sapp are 22 years old. O’Brien is 20. The arrests of Johnson, Sapp and O’Brien were announced Sunday morning. The citations of the other players were revealed when the police report was released late Sunday evening. Knox County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Hillary Coward said that people who receive citations are given a later booking date rather than being taken into custody immediately. Officers say they received a call about a loud party at a Knoxville apartment and responded at about 12:02 a.m. Sunday. Sapp said he’d quiet

the party down, but officers someone turned the music up as they were leaving. Officers also said they later heard about a fight in the area. The report by Officer John Sharp stated that Sapp tried to pull away as they attempted to secure him. Sharp said Johnson also grabbed him by the shoulder in an attempt to keep Sapp from being detained. Sharp said he pulled Johnson to the ground as Officer Keith McFarland took control of Sapp, but Johnson “continued to resist arrest by pulling away and rolling around.” The report also states Sapp and Johnson provided alcohol and marijuana to numerous underage individuals, including at least one minor. Officers said they observed marijuana residue in a pipe,

but “the pipe was destroyed by the residents of the apartment as the ownership of the apparent drug paraphernalia could not be determined.” Officers say O’Brien provided identification indicating he was over the age of 21, but further investigation showed he was actually 20. The report said O’Brien “had a very strong odor of alcohol on his breath and became combative” as officers took him into custody. Sapp, Johnson and O’Brien have all been released. “We are aware of the situation and are still in the preliminary stages of gathering all facts and information,” Tennessee coach Butch Jones said in a statement released by the university Sunday.

Jeter: Yankees have to move on without A-Rod Associated Press

TAMPA, Fla. — Derek Jeter says the New York Yankees have no choice but to move forward now that Alex Rodriguez has accepted his suspension for the 2014 season. Rodriguez ended his extended and acrimonious fight with Major League Baseball on Friday, withdrawing a pair of lawsuits that were filed in an attempt to overturn a season-long ban for his involvement in the Biogenesis scandal — the longest penalty in the sport’s history related to performance-enhancing drugs. Jeter spoke Monday at the Yankees’ minor league complex. He said he has texted

with A-Rod since the lawsuits were dropped. Rodriguez was given a 211game ban last year by baseball Commissioner Bud Selig that was reduced to 162 plus the 2014 postseason by arbitrator Fredric Horowitz. ARod sued MLB and the union in federal court in Manhattan, claiming the arbitration process was flawed. Rodriguez’s lawyers filed notices of dismissal in both cases. “He’s not here for this season, so we’re going to have to find ways to win with the team that we have,” Jeter said Monday at the Yankees’ minor league complex. “It’s a complicated situation, but it’s pretty much played out.

That’s what has happened.” Rodriguez was given a 211game ban last year by baseball Commissioner Bud Selig that was reduced to 162 plus the 2014 postseason by arbitrator Fredric Horowitz. ARod sued MLB and the union in federal court in Manhattan, claiming the arbitration process was flawed. Rodriguez’s lawyers filed notices of dismissal in both cases. Jeter has texted with Rodriguez since the decision to end the lawsuits came about. “You’d have to ask him how he feels about it, if he’s glad that it’s over with,” Jeter said. “It’s a situation that he has to deal with. Now it’s over and it’s done with, and

we’ll move on from there. But you’d have to ask him how he feels about that.” Rodriguez will be 39 when eligible to return in a year. The Yankees owe him $21 million in 2015 and $20 million in each of the final two seasons of a record $275 million, 10-year deal. NOTES: Jeter, limited to 17-games last season after breaking his ankle during the 2012 AL Championship Series, started his fourth week of on-field work. ...

“The bats aren’t too bad, to be honest with you. That ball’s the issue. “If we used the big league ball, we’d be fine. Because it’s a little golf ball is what it is, or a big golf ball.” At last year’s College World Series, there were three home runs hit in 14 games — the fewest since there were two in 1966. The .234 CWS batting average was the lowest since it was .227 in 1974, the year metal bats replaced wood. Van Horn said his primary concern about the lack of offense is that the recent surge in the game’s popularity will be affected by dwindling scoring. “I just don’t want fans running off because the game’s getting boring,” Van Horn said. “I love bunting and defense and small ball, but I don’t want people leaving in the seventh inning when you’re down three because they think you can’t hit a three-run homer anymore. “That’s a little bit of my fear for the future of the game.”


since 2009 and are now changing coaches for the fourth time since then. Cheeks was fired Sunday, a move that was unexpected despite Detroit’s continuing struggles. The Pistons were 21-29 entering Monday night’s home game against San Antonio. They were only a halfgame out of a playoff spot — thanks to the glut of mediocre teams in the Eastern Conference — when Cheeks was let go. “It was definitely a surprise to me,” forward Greg Monroe said. “You never want to see anybody lose their job.” Monroe has seen plenty of that since the Pistons drafted him in 2010. His rookie season was the second and final year of John Kuester’s tumultuous coaching tenure, then Detroit gave Lawrence Frank two years as well before firing him. Cheeks didn’t even get half that — a sign that ownership and the front office may feel it’s time for this team to make the transition from rebuilding to winning. “Ownership’s message was really — they want to give us the best opportunity to be successful, which is respectable from our perspective,” said the 37-yearold Billups, who has played in only 19 games for Detroit this season. “They want us to know that they believe in us, and they expect a certain degree of commitment.”
