‘No mo’: Tax service shuts Corinth office

Getting close to the goal


The Corinth branch of a tax preparation service has apparently closed its doors, leaving some customers wondering when or if they will get their income tax refunds. Police Chief David Lancaster said his department began to get complaints about Mo Money Taxes on South Harper Road last week. “These are people who filed their tax returns with Mo Money and then didn’t get their refund checks,” he said. Detective Capt. Ralph Dance said people have also complained about exorbitant fees. He has taken eight to 10 complaints about the business. “They would tell people their check was coming back in so many days, but people were not getting their checks,” said

Dance. The business was apparently open as recently as late last week but, by Monday, there was a note on the door saying the business was closed for the season. Meredith Key, a customer of the Corinth branch of Mo Money Taxes, said her tax refund is in limbo and it is causing a hardship because her husband was laid off and her work hours have been cut. “The IRS is telling me there is nothing they can do because they’ve deposited the money into their account,” she said. “Now I don’t know if I’m ever going to get it.” She said she and some other customers waited for someone to show up at the business Saturday from the morning until 2 Please see TAX | 3

Pizza Inn owner Steve Henson shows Ruby and Christopher Patterson how the pizzas are cut at the business. A fundraiser to help transport local special-needs children to Disney World will be held tonight at Pizza Inn from 5-8 p.m. Organizer Havis Hurley says the children will receive 15 percent of what is taken in during 5-8 p.m. and all tips. Thus far, $19,200 has been raised to take around 40 children and adults to Disney on May 26.

The Corinth School District is beginning to move toward a new round of building projects focused on improvements at the high school and middle school campuses. The district’s board of trustees agreed on Monday to apply to the Mississippi Department of Education for qualified school construction bond funding that remains available from the federal stimulus programs. Board members planned to tour facilities this week to get a look at possible projects as they prepare

to formulate a priority list. The district seeks up to $5 million and has a list of projects totaling an estimated $6.2 million. “We have the ability to repay it without any type of tax increase,” said Superintendent Lee Childress. “It’s definitely something I think we should consider.” Board members received a list of possible projects to consider, and Childress emphasized that probably not every item on the list would be completed.

Legislator connects Cook-off looking for some local chili favorites with people through Internet, Facebook BY MARK BOEHLER


A new legislator is taking advantage of technology to better connect with his constituents. District 3 State Rep. Tracy Arnold has established himself on the Internet with a website and a Facebook page that allow him to communicate and share information with the people of the district. The website, at, contains a variety of information about his background and his positions on the issues. It also includes a link to e-mail him with questions and concerns.

A local group of volunteers hopes this year’s Easter holiday weekend traditions around the dinner table will include a Southwestern flair. The fifth annual Crossroads Chili Cook-Off, which crowns official International Chili Society sanctioned Mississippi state champions in several categories, will be held Easter weekend this year. The popular event will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 7 at the Corinth Depot in downtown Corinth in conjunction with the Green Market’s fourth season. “This won’t happen every year,” said cook-off organizer Steve Knight about the event being held on Easter weekend. “We won’t face the situation for several more years.” The Green Market is traditionally held the first Saturday each month outside of cold winter months. When its event committee decided to not change the

Arnold said he’s particularly proud of the Facebook page, which can be found by logging into the popular social networking site and searching for William Tracy Arnold. The page allows him to share information and photos and to receive messages from those in the district who may have questions or concerns. “It’s just a better way to hear the voice of the people in District 3,” he said. Arnold represents most of Prentiss County and south Alcorn County, including the Rienzi area. Arnold said it’s important to him to understand what Please see ARNOLD | 2

However, because he has so many people trying to kill him, Frost decides to walk into the American embassy in Cape Town and turn himself in. At this point Weston receives a call from Washington, D.C., where several agents are monitoring the progress of Frost. Weston is ordered to take Frost in as a house guest at the safe house.

The best part for participants in the local favorite — the chili can be made ahead of time, noted Knight. “It’s simple for people to get involved,” added Knight. “Just prepare chili ahead of time and keep it warm.” People’s Choice is one of the most fun parts of the chili cook-off. For a small fee to a charity, people get to sample chili and pick their favorite. The winner gets a trophy. “People’s Choice has been a huge success,” said Knight, as 13 teams competed last year. “People enjoy sampling the chili.” The cook-off committee is encouraging churches, school groups, civic clubs and businesses — especially restaurants — to get involved and enter in local favorites.

Also, it is always refreshing to observe great actors performing in movies with substance and style. Most movies are made for the 25-andunder age group which are mostly recycled with very little plot or creativity. At least “Safe House” gives originality some semblance of reality.

FAITH AND WORKS Extreme positions are taken by people across the religious world regarding faith and works. Some believe that one is saved by works while others believe that one is saved by faith only. The Bible does not teach either of these extreme doctrines. The New Testament teaches that we are justiďŹ ed by both faith and works. “Therefore being justiďŹ ed by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christâ€? (Rom 5: I). “Ye see then how that by works a man is justiďŹ ed, and not by faith onlyâ€? (James 2:24). There is no conict between the writings of Paul and James when we properly understand the passages. Paul was teaching justiďŹ cation by faith rather than works of the law. James was teaching that works must accompany our faith. The New Testament teaches both faith and works are necessary in order for one to be saved. After hearing Peter’s sermon on the day of Pentecost the Jews believed and asked, “ ... Men and brethren, what shall we doâ€? (Acts 2:37)?â€? Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghostâ€? (Acts 2:38). After hearing and believing Peter’s message, Peter instructed them to save themselves. “And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generationâ€? (Acts 2:40). They heard the message, believed and obeyed and the Lord added them to His church. “Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.â€? (Acts 2:47). They believed, obeyed and were saved. The key to faith or works is supplied by both Paul and James. Paul says our faith must work by love. “For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth anything, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by loveâ€? (Gal 5:6). James says that we show our faith by our works. “Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my worksâ€? (Jam 2: 18). One is not saved by faith only or works only, but by a working faith. “But wilt thou know, 0 vain man, that faith without works is deadâ€? (Jam 2:20)? We are not saved by faith or works, but by faith and works.

Considering consolidation About the only way that school consolidation in any scope will occur in Mississippi is if it’s initiated by the state Legislature. As has been demonstrated in Leflore County and elsewhere, consolidation talks on the local level usually get nowhere because the people involved are more concerned about preserving jobs or power than doing what’s best for the students and the taxpayers. The Legislature, after rejecting in 2011 then-Gov. Haley Barbour’s proposal to reduce the number of school districts from 152 to 100, looks like it’s poised to at least experiment with the idea. Recently, the Senate passed a bill that would merge the three Sunflower County school districts into one. The measure awaits action in the House. Sunflower County is an easy target with which to start. All three of its school districts — Sunflower County, Indianola and Drew — are under state control because of chronically low academic performance and other problems. That doesn’t leave them with much leverage to argue in favor of the status quo. And because none of them does well, none of them can object to assuming someone else’s headaches. All three are beset with them. Under the bill, a new countywide school board would be elected to run the consolidated district. That school board — with oversight from state education officials — would hire the new superintendent. None of the three existing superintendents would be eligible for the job. Proponents of the bill claim that consolidation would save $1.2 million a year in administrative costs. They don’t offer a calculation of how much better the education might be, but it couldn’t be a whole lot worse. It’s definitely worth trying. If it works, then it could be the opening volley for doing the same in other parts of the state where the districts are too small or their performance too substandard or both.

Letter to the Editor To the editor: In his FY 2013 Budget Recommendation, Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant stated that libraries are not an “appropriate government function” and are a “non-core area.” Consistent with these beliefs, the Republican budget calls for a 15 percent cut to Mississippi’s public libraries. This proposed cut would be particularly painful to our local libraries as the Mississippi Library Commission has been cut by more than $3.4 million or 24 percent over the last three years. In a letter to Bryant dated Feb. 3, Ms. Sharman Bridges Smith, the Executive Director of the Mississippi Library Commission, expressed an understanding of the difficult challenges facing budget writers: “Librarians understand that these are difficult times and we expect to take cuts along with all other public entities.” Even so, Ms. Smith noted, “These cuts have and continue to severely impact citizen access to the very priorities of your administrationjobs, early childhood literacy, and reading.” To illustrate her point, Ms. Smith listed several services provided by Mississippi’s public libraries including: ■ More than 37 percent of 2.7 million people using computers in public libraries each year are doing job searches or completing employment applications; ■ Many local public libraries serve as WIN Job Centers; and ■ More than 400,000 Mississippi children participate in 13,000 children’s programs each year Our local libraries help connect Mississippians to jobs, introduce children to books and encourage adults to continue learning long after their classroom days are over. These essential services are worth protecting and deserve more credit than the Republican Budget allows. Brandon Jones, Executive Director Mississippi Democratic Trust

a company has, the more it pays) and then in some cases the “widget” is also subject to standard 7 percent sales tax. Those valid arguments are good, solid business arguments to reduce or eliminate the inventory tax. But the issue isn’t that simple. A recent analysis by the John C. Stennis Institute of Government at Mississippi State University requested by the Mississippi Association of Supervisors, Miss. Municipal League, Miss. Assn. of School Superintendents and the Miss. Assn. of School Boards projected that cities, counties and local school districts would lose approximately $162 million in county, municipal and school revenues if they inventory tax is eliminated. The Stennis study forecast that counties would lose $56 million, cities would lose $33 million and that schools would lose $71.9 million. The state’s community colleges also derive a lesser amount of revenue from inventory taxes as well.

Schools, county governments and municipal governments are severely limited in their abilities to make up the loss of $162 million in revenues. If the inventory tax is eliminated, county and municipal governments and public school districts will be forced to make up $162 million in lost revenue from other taxpayers. What’s the most likely source? Higher property taxes and those higher taxes will likely come in the form of higher real estate taxes, higher car tags, and the like. Eliminating the state’s inventory is a tax cut if and only if the Legislature makes provisions to hold county and municipal governments and school districts harmless from the impact of this businessfriendly legislation. Otherwise, this isn’t a tax cut — it’s a tax swap from corporate taxpayers to individual taxpayers. Sid Salter is a syndicated columnist. Contact him at 601-507-8004 or

While spending grows overall, defense gets cut back. It is the area that the Obama administration considers most deserving of a dose of Greek-style austerity.

a peace dividend and of a ruthlessly efficient team of bureaucratic masters for Medicare, the debt picture is still bleak. On its own terms, the Obama budget would add another $11 trillion in gross debt, taking us to an astonishing $26 trillion. And that’s if nothing goes wrong. This budget won’t be passed by Congress or even the Democratic-held Senate, because Democrats got out of that business. President Obama inveighs against a do-nothing Congress even though his own party hasn’t passed a budget in the Senate, as required by law, in more than 1,000 days. His chief of staff, Jack Lew, asserted the other day that Democrats can’t do it because Republicans won’t let them get 60 votes — when all they need is 51. Given how much worse he looks whenever he puts something down on paper, the president should himself take the next logical step and stop offering budgets altogether.

State Legislature adopts new House passes bill to limit budgeting rule change the attorney general’s power BY EMILY WAGSTER PETTUS Associated Press

JACKSON — Mississippi legislators have set a new budget-writing rule, but only after arguing about whether it increases accountability or limits most lawmakers’ power to boost spending on education and other programs. Senators voted 32-16 Wednesday to adopt the Legislature’s joint operating rules for the fouryear term that started last month. The House approved the rules 72-48 Monday. Republicans now control both chambers, and Republican leaders pushed the budget-writing change. Before this term, Republicans controlled the Senate and Democrats controlled the House.

During rocky economic times the past few years, House and Senate leaders were frequently at odds over how much money to spend and how much to leave in various accounts that make up the state’s financial reserves. Republicans often accused Democrats of wanting to deplete the savings accounts, while Democrats often accused Republicans of underfunding education, health care and other state services. Under the new budget rule, any legislator who wants to add money to a state program must say specifically which other agency’s budget they’d cut to find the extra cash. The legislator could not request that additional money be pulled from financial reserves, even if there are hundreds of

millions in reserve. Mississippi was already required to have a balanced budget each year. Supporters of the new rule say it will bring more accountability by requiring lawmakers to keep numbers in balance throughout the budget-writing process, not only at the end. “The vote today was about fiscal responsibility,” Republican Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves said Wednesday. Writing a state budget takes months, and the numbers often change before a fiscal year begins each July 1. Depending on the condition of the economy, budget writers can increase or decrease the estimate for the amount of money that can be spent.

JACKSON — The Republican-led Mississippi House voted 59-55 Wednesday to pass a bill limiting the powers of the Democratic attorney general. Proponents say agency heads need to be able to hire outside lawyers without Attorney General Jim Hood’s approval when they have conflicts with Hood. The bill would also require all outside legal contracts be filed with a state board, and require the board to approve contracts worth more than $100,000. It’s the second time in a week that the House has debated the proposal. The bill considered last week failed because it violated parliamentary rules. House Judiciary A

Chairman Mark Baker, R-Brandon, said the bill keeps Hood from imposing his views on other agencies. He and other Republicans cited Hood’s failure to sue over the federal health care law as one motivation, although Republicans have long complained that Hood gives legal work to Democraticleaning lawyers who support Hood. “The fact that Jim Hood elected to dictate the policy of the state of Mississippi by doing so is going to be fixed by this bill,” Baker said. Hood contends the bill is an unconstitutional dilution of his power as the state’s chief legal officer and has threatened to sue. “Our office has a 100 percent approval rating among state agencies we represent,” Hood said in a statement after the

vote. “Obviously, this is not about the quality of our lawyers. It is an unconstitutional attempt by the Republican leaders in the House to use state agencies to intervene and try to stop our office from pursuing claims against big drug companies, Wall Street bankers and BP.” Democrats largely supported Hood, although a few crossed party lines to vote with Republicans or sat out votes. “Everybody knows this bill is here to gut the authority of the attorney general,” said Rep. Willie Bailey, D-Greenville. “They want this bill to destroy the attorney general.” Baker denied any personal motive. “I would not have brought you a bill just to poke a stick in someone’s eye,” he said.

House leaders praise payroll tax cut deal BY ALAN FRAM Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Congressional leaders of both parties praised an emerging deal Wednesday to extend a payroll tax cut and extra jobless benefits through 2012, but cautioned that bargainers still had to nail down final details. The rare, bipartisan consensus reflected a desire by both parties to put the long-running drama over the issue to rest and a shared sense that their tentative agreement was probably the best deal they could get. The pact came together after House Republicans conceded that the roughly $100 billion payroll tax cut would not have to be paid for with spending cuts. “I do expect, if the agreement comes together like I expect it will, the House should vote this week,” House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, told reporters. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said Democrats were pleased that the package will extend the payroll tax cut and extra jobless benefits and block a 27 percent cut in doctors’ Medicare reimbursements. Without action, the tax cut, added unemployment benefits and current rate of Medicare benefits would otherwise expire March 1. “We’re way down the road from where we were just a few days ago,” she said in a brief interview. Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont., one of the bargainers on the legislation, said there were “just a couple of little wrinkles” left that he be-

lieved would be resolved on Wednesday. “I think a lot of people realize Congress is not enjoying a great reputation,” he told reporters. “Both sides recognized the need to get this done.” Lawmakers said among the unresolved items were details of the savings to be used to pay for about $50 billion of the roughly $150 billion package. Once finalized, the measure would be an election-year victory for President Barack Obama, who made the payroll tax cut a keystone of his largely ignored jobs creation plan in September. On Tuesday, House Republicans emerging from a closed-door meeting said reaction to the package was generally positive, with some saying it reflected a desire to avoid spending months debating an issue that cost them dearly last year. In December, the House GOP initially opposed a two-month extension of the tax cut and other benefits that were about to lapse, only to retreat under pressure from outside party leaders and conservatives. “We’ve got to move onto another issue,” said Rep. Dennis Ross, R-Fla. “I think that’s what the mood is.” Republicans were determined that Obama not be able to claim that the GOP was standing in the way of a middleclass tax cut. They would rather spend the months leading up to the November presidential and congressional elections focused on GOP themes of opposing tax increases, higher spending and

Obama administration regulations that they say stifle job creation. The tentative compromise would extend through December the current 2 percentagepoint cut in the usual 6.2 percent Social Security payroll tax deducted from workers’ paychecks. That reduction, which saves $1,000 a year for families earning $50,000, would affect 160 million workers and would otherwise expire on March 1. Excluded, aides said, was a collection of expiring tax breaks, largely for businesses buying equipment and other corporate expenses that had been sought by some lawmakers of both parties. Participants said the Medicare payments to doctors would be paid for by reducing Medicare reimbursements to hospitals and by cutting about $5 billion from an $8 billion program under Obama’s health care overhaul aimed at battling obesity and smoking. The unemployment benefits would be financed with a collection of savings that include government sales of parts of the broadcast airwaves to wireless companies and from boosting federal workers’ contributions to their pensions. In private, some Democrats called it a victory, pointing to the payroll tax cut and unemployment benefit extensions while heading off the GOP’s earlier demand that the entire measure be financed with spending cuts and other savings. Others complained that the jobless benefit extensions were not generous enough.

A read on the job market The job market has shown signs of strengthening, and another good report is expected today from the Labor Department.

If we have consistent readings under that number, we could see a significant drop in unemployment and gains in hiring.

Big profit for GM? General Motors is expected to report its best full-year earnings in its 103-year history. Financial analysts expect GM to say its profit climbed to around $8 billion. A big turnaround given that the company is less than three years past the government-funded bankruptcy protection that saved it from collapse. But GM does have some struggles — its European operations have likely been hurt by the weak economy in the region.

Vandy opens Ole Miss crucial stretch The Associated Press

OXFORD — Mississippi is about to embark on its most crucial — and brutal — stretch of the season. In less than 48 hours, the Rebels (15-9 overall, 5-5 Southeastern Conference) will host Vanderbilt (17-8, 6-4) tonight before travelling to face No. 1 Kentucky at Rupp Arena on Saturday. Junior Murphy Holloway said his team isn’t moaning about the quick turn against two of the SEC’s elite teams, and instead is relishing the

challenge. “You might as well,” Holloway said. “Because you can’t run from it.” To stay in the conversation for an NCAA Tournament atlarge berth, Ole Miss probably needs at least a split. The Rebels have had an up-anddown February, but are fresh off a come-from-behind victory over Auburn on Saturday. Holloway was the catalyst in that win, scoring 20 points and grabbing 11 rebounds. And his wide 6-foot-7 frame

will be needed against both the Commodores and Wildcats, who have some of the biggest and most talented teams in the SEC. Like Holloway, Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy said he wasn’t going to complain about the difficult schedule. “I try not to get too far ahead,” Kennedy said. “When you get into the grind of the season, it’s just getting to the next day. That’s been our approach. That’s what I want our kids to do so I try to live it myself. Vanderbilt’s

outstanding — just like Kentucky, there are not a lot of holes in their game.” Mississippi has proven to be a feisty — if flawed — team that depends on outstanding rebound and defense to offset poor outside shooting and a tendency to commit too many turnovers. After the Auburn win, Kennedy joked that he occasionally checks the waiver wire for new players, but none are available. Please see REBELS | 9

4 TCU players arrested BY NOMAAN MERCHANT The Associated Press

FORT WORTH, Texas — Authorities arrested 17 students in a sweeping drug sting at Texas Christian University on Wednesday, a bust that included four members of the Horned Frogs football team. Police said those arrested were caught making “hand-to-hand” sales of marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy and prescription drugs to undercover officers. They said the bust followed a six-month investigation prompted by complaints from students, parents and others. “There is no doubt,” TCU Police Chief Steve McGee said at a morning news conference. Police said they had not determined whether any of the players were selling to other athletes. Chancellor Victor Boschini suggested the four players’ Please see TCU | 9

Withey comes out of ‘left field’ for Kansas BY DAVE SKRETTA The Associated Press

LAWRENCE, Kan. — Jeff Withey knew he was in trouble when he failed to track down a rebound and Kansas coach Bill Self immediately brought practice to a screeching halt. Withey was coming off a miserable performance at Missouri, held scoreless in a game against the fourthranked Jayhawks’ stiffest challenger for Big 12 supremacy, and Self was so annoyed by the 7-footer’s lack of hustle that he told him to start running the stairs in Allen Fieldhouse. There are somewhere in

the neighborhood of 900 steps inside the historic arena. Withey touched just about every one of them. “He was disgusted, so he told me to touch all the stairs. I couldn’t blame him,” Withey said. “I think he was trying to light a fire under me.” It’s been ablaze ever since. Withey poured in a careerbest 25 points in a victory at No. 9 Baylor, and followed it up with 18 points and a career-high 20 rebounds against Oklahoma State. His performance against rival Kansas State on Monday night — 18 points, 11 rebounds and nine blocked

shots — was pivotal as the Jayhawks avoided a secondhalf collapse in a 59-53 victory. Not bad for a guy who could barely get on the court last season. “For someone who kind of came out of left field, I don’t remember anyone as dominant,” said Self, who has tutored his share of NBA big men during his coaching career. “How do you win without him?” Self asked. It’s a good question. The Jayhawks (21-5, 11-2 Big 12) struggled early in the season against teams with length, such as top-ranked

Kentucky and No. 5 Duke. But with Withey providing a complement for player of the year candidate Thomas Robinson in the paint, Kansas is playing its best ball in quite some time. Since an upset loss to Davidson in December, its lone losses have come on the road against Iowa State and Missouri — the latter a turning point for Withey’s season. Perhaps his entire career. “He’s awesome. As a coach, I root for guys to get better,” Kansas State coach Frank Martin said. “As a fan of the game, as a guy who tries to Please see WITHEY | 9

Top-ranked Kentucky opens doors on practice BY COLIN FLY The Associated Press

LEXINGTON, Ky. — Kentucky opened its practice on Wednesday, allowing students, faculty, staff and a national television audience to watch the top-ranked Wildcats’ workout and scrimmage. “I want the students into it, I want the players alert and focused through the week,” coach John Calipari said. “Our practices are pretty consistent in how we go about it, then it turns into ... ‘Why don’t we call ESPN?’ Then it was like, ‘I bet it rates higher than games.’ It’s Kentucky. That’s the Kentucky Effect.” The Wildcats are trying to become the first team since 2003 to finish the Southeast-

ern Conference undefeated. Next up for Kentucky (25-1, 11-0) is Mississippi (15-9, 5-5) on Saturday. They also have games remaining at Mississippi State, home versus Vanderbilt and Georgia and the regularseason finale at Florida on March 4. The Wildcats’ rotation includes highly touted freshmen Anthony Davis, Marquis Teague, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Kyle Wiltjer to go with sophomores Doron Lamb and Terrence Jones and senior Darius Miller. “The way we’re playing, I’m happy, but I’m not satisfied. I’m just not satisfied because I want to make sure we’re getting better and I’m looking for areas: where can

we grow,” Calipari said. “I guess we could be more perfect, but the reality is: I’m happy how we’re playing, but I’m not satisfied. I want us to improve on that.” Calipari decided to open practice after what happened in the days leading up to Kentucky’s only loss. The Wildcats beat North Carolina by a point on Dec. 3, but fell at Indiana on Christian Watford’s buzzer beating 3-pointer exactly one week later after he gave the team two days off. He also downplayed that any team would gain an advantage watching the practice on television. “You say, ‘Well what if this doesn’t work?’ I know the other doesn’t work, because I lived it,” Calipari said. “The

other thing we did absolutely didn’t work after North Carolina. So I’m trying something different. Maybe it won’t work, but we’ll see. “We’re really not changing anything.” The afternoon practice drew about 2,000 people to the 8,000-seat Memorial Coliseum who received free tickets as students, faculty or staff at the university. The Wildcats wanted to make it open to the public, but parking around the campus while school was in session proved to be too logistically complicated to solve on short notice. Calipari was also unsure if they’ll be able to do a similar event in the future or if Please see UK | 9


TCU: Arrested players

NBA standings


involvement was not a sign of a larger issue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a football problem,â&#x20AC;? Boschini said. Still, the arrests stunned the campus community, coming just one day after a thrilling overtime victory by the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball team and less than 24 hours after TCU released its football schedule for next season, its first in the Big 12 Conference. TCU has an enrollment of about 9,500 students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are days people want to be a head football coach, but today is not one of those days,â&#x20AC;? coach Gary Patterson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As I heard the news this morning, I was first shocked, then hurt and now Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m mad.â&#x20AC;? Three key defensive players on the team were arrested: Linebacker Tanner Brock, the leading tackler two seasons ago, defensive tackle D.J. Yendrey and cornerback Devin Johnson. The other player is offensive lineman Ty Horn. Officials said the students had been â&#x20AC;&#x153;separated from TCU,â&#x20AC;? but it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t clear if the players had been kicked off the team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I expect our student-athletes to serve as ambassadors for the university and will not tolerate behavior that reflects poorly on TCU, the athletics department, our teams or other student-athletes within the department,â&#x20AC;? athletic director Chris Del Conte said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our student-athletes are a microcosm of society and unfortunately that means some of our players reflect a culture that glorifies drugs and drug use. That mindset is not reflected by TCU nor will it be allowed within athletics.â&#x20AC;?

REBELS: Kennedy hopes to finish strong CONTINUED FROM 8

Though the Rebels do have their warts, the sixth-year coach said his players are also starting to understand their strengths and limitations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re kind of who we are,â&#x20AC;? Kennedy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We continue to compete, we continue to try to win the effort areas. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to be good on the glass, make timely shots and try to value the ball better. Most games weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve competed and put ourselves in a position if we make the necessary plays, than we have a chance. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to change. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s who we are. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My hope is we finish strong.â&#x20AC;? Vanderbilt has gone through its own tough stretch, losing three of four games, including Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 69-63 home loss to Kentucky. But those struggles appear more schedule-related than an indictment on the Commodoresâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; talent. They have a veteran team led by wing players John Jenkins and Jeffery Taylor, who are both among the SECâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top 3-point shooters. Jenkins averages a teamhigh 19.5 points per game while Taylor is right behind him at 17.6. Stallings said the close loss to Kentucky was disappointing, but also a sign that his team is capable of playing well against anyone in the country. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we proved to ourselves â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not that we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know this â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but it showed that if we can get it where it needs to be consistently enough than we can probably play with anyone in the country,â&#x20AC;? Stallings said.

Now heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dominating games.â&#x20AC;? Withey didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to have much of a presence as a sophomore last season, when the Morris twins patrolled the interior and a bunch of veterans were holding the reins during a 35-3 season. Markieff and Marcus both headed off to the NBA early, though. So did Josh Selby, and much of the leadership from that team graduated. Even the imposing Robinson was a role player last season, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taken on an expanded role as Kansas pursues its eighth straight Big 12 title. Self knew that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d need someone else to step up, especially after two high-profile

recruits were deemed partial academic qualifiers. He never expected Withey to become that guy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big guy in the country who plays like he does,â&#x20AC;? Martin said.

JACK COOLEY, NOTRE DAME Cooley continues to work his magic in the paint for the surging Irish. The junior big man averaged 21.5 points (on 17-of-21 shooting) and 13.0 rebounds to lead Notre Dame to wins at West Virginia and at home vs. DePaul.

CHRIS JOHNSON, DAYTON Johnson had season-highs in points (22) and rebounds (13) as Dayton avoided a bad loss by beating Fordham, 72–70, in overtime. Johnson, a senior swingman, scored the Flyers’ first five points in overtime.

B.J. YOUNG, ARKANSAS The Razorbacks remained undefeated at home (17–0) thanks to an SEC season-high 27 points from Young, a freshman guard from St. Louis. Arkansas is 5–0 at home and 0–5 on the road in the SEC under first-year coach Mike Anderson. ALEXIS WANGMENE, TEXAS Wangmene, a senior forward, recorded his first career double-double with 15 points and 13 boards to help Texas rally to a 75–64 win over Kansas State in Austin. The Horns, now 16–9 overall and 6–6 in the Big 12, have played their way back into the NCAA Tournament picture. CHRIS ALLEN, IOWA STATE Allen, a senior transfer from Michigan State, scored a season-high 25 points to lead Iowa State past Texas A&M, 69–46, in Ames. Allen was the only player in the game to score more than 10 points. JEFF WITHEY, KANSAS Withey, a 7'0" center who began his career at Arizona, scored 18 points and pulled down a career-high 20 rebounds in Kansas’ win vs. Oklahoma State, and then had 18 points, 11 boards and nine blocks in a KU victory at Kansas State on Monday night. JOE RAGLAND, WICHITA STATE The Shockers took control of the Missouri Valley race with a surprisingly easy 89–68 win at Creighton. Ragland, a former junior college transfer, led the way with 24 points (on 9-of12 shooting), four rebounds and six assists. IAN HUMMER, PRINCETON Princeton handed Harvard its first loss in Ivy League play, knocking off the Crimson 70–62 at Jadwin Gym. Hummer led the way for the Tigers with 20 points, nine rebounds and six assists — just one night after going 0-of-11 from the field in a 59–47 win over Dartmouth. ANTHONY DAVIS, KENTUCKY Davis continued his push for National Player of the Year honors with another stellar performance on the road in SEC play. The freshman scored 15 points, grabbed eight boards and blocked seven shots as the Wildcats outlasted Vanderbilt, 69–63, at Memorial Gym. ROB JONES, SAINT MARY’S The Gaels bounced back from a lopsided loss at West Coast Conference rival Gonzaga on Thursday night by routing Santa Clara, 82–67, on Saturday. Jones, a forward who began his career at the University of San Diego, led the way with 25 points and 12 rebounds. RAMON MOORE, TEMPLE The Owls remained in first place in the A-10 with an 85–72 win over Xavier. Moore, a senior guard, poured in 30 points to lead three double-figure scorers. Michael Eric had his first double-double (11 points, 16 boards) since returning from an injury in late January. HERB POPE, SETON HALL Pope was dominant inside Sunday afternoon, with 19 points and 14 rebounds to lead the Pirates to a 73–66 win over Pittsburgh in Newark. Seton Hall has rebounded from a six-game losing streak with two straight wins. ROBBIE HUMMEL, PURDUE He’s not quite the same player as he was preACL injuries, but Hummel is still capable of taking over a game. On Sunday, the fifth-year senior scored a season-high 27 points and added nine boards to lead the Boilermakers to a much-needed 87–77 win over Northwestern.

Bruce Schwartzman

TIM FRAZIER, PENN STATE Frazier, one of the most underrated point guards in the nation, missed a triple-double by one assist in Penn State’s 67–51 win over Nebraska. Frazier scored 23 points (on 7-of-9 shooting), grabbed 10 rebounds and handed out nine assists to help the Nittany Lions snap a five-game losing streak.

Cats pass a big test with six-point win at Vanderbilt. Orange’s only concern right now is rebounding. Tigers looking like a No. 1 seed in the NCAAs. Spartans make a statement with win in Columbus. Jeff Withey emerging in the paint for KU. Buckeyes loss at home to MSU could be costly. Devils’ win at North Carolina was a classic. Bears are too talented to have four losses in Big 12. Tar Heels will have trouble getting over Duke loss. Hoyas’ schedule sets up nicely down the stretch. Mike Moser has been terrific for the Runnin’ Rebels. Eagles rally from 18–4 deficit and surge past Cincy. Hoosiers have four of final six in Bloomington. Wolverines very much alive in Big Ten title race. Fighting Irish getting contributions from everyone. Late turnovers too much to overcome vs. Syracuse. Badgers have won seven of their last eight games. Gators put up little fight in home loss vs. Tennessee. Noles salvage tough week by beating Miami. Aztecs unable to close the deal in Vegas. Cavaliers just playing for NCAA seed at this point. Gaels control their own destiny in the WCC. State stunned at home in OT loss vs. Georgia. Shockers are the class of the Missouri Valley. Tennessee State hands Murray State its first loss.

Davis does it all for Kentucky Who is your choice, at this point of the season, for National Player of the Year? Mitch Light: I love what Thomas Robinson is doing for Kansas, but I’ve got to go with Kentucky freshman Anthony Davis. The big man from Chicago is dominating games on the defensive end like a young Patrick Ewing did for Georgetown in the 1980s. And like with most great shot-blockers, you can’t just look at the number of shots Davis blocks — 4.9 per game, the most in the nation — but you also have to take into account the amount of shots he alters and the times his presence in the lane deters players from driving toward the basket.

SATURDAY, FEB. 18 MARQUETTE AT CONNECTICUT It might not be a stretch to call this a must win for Connecticut. The defending national champs are trending in the wrong direction. WICHITA STATE AT DAVIDSON The Shockers are riding high after a big win at Creighton. They step out of Missouri Valley action to play a Davidson team that has a win over Kansas on its résumé. FLORIDA STATE AT NC STATE The Wolfpack have been feasting on the bottom of the ACC of late. This week, State heads to Duke for a Thursday night showdown before this home date with Florida State. UNLV AT NEW MEXICO UNLV and San Diego State get more national pub, but New Mexico is also in the thick of the Mountain West title chase. The Lobos must protect their home court this weekend. TENNESSEE AT ALABAMA The Vols broke through with their first SEC road win of the season last week, knocking off Florida with ease. Can they make it two straight against an Alabama team in turmoil? KANSAS STATE AT BAYLOR Kansas State remains on solid ground to earn an at-large invite to the NCAA Tournament, but the Wildcats haven’t been playing their best basketball of late. ARIZONA AT WASHINGTON The Huskies have the talent to win the Pac-12 regular-season title but need to prove it on the court. This team has been wildly inconsistent. SETON HALL AT CINCINNATI It’s a huge Big East bubble matchup in the Queen City. Cincinnati is in position to make a late-season move with four of its final six regular-season games at home. TEXAS AT OKLAHOMA STATE O-State has been tough at home of late, with wins over Missouri and Iowa State sandwiched around a four-point loss to Baylor. This is a huge opportunity for Texas — but it won’t be easy. NEVADA AT IONA It’s an intriguing East vs. West matchup in the BracketBusters. Iona’s Sam Machado is one of the elite point guards in the nation. SAINT MARY’S AT MURRAY STATE Murray State’s run at perfection ended last week, but this is still a huge intersectional showdown. Top-flight guards Matthew Dellavedova (Saint Mary’s) and Isaiah Canaan (Murray State) will be on display. FLORIDA AT ARKANSAS Arkansas has been terrific at home in SEC play, with a perfect 5–0 mark. Florida will have to shoot well to win at Bud Walton Arena. MINNESOTA AT NORTHWESTERN Once again, Northwestern will be playing for its NCAA Tournament life. Minnesota, too, finds itself on the bubble. The pressure is on both teams to get a win. DAYTON AT XAVIER Xavier is two games behind Temple in the loss column in the A-10 standings, while Dayton has slipped to .500 in the league. Both teams need a win in a big way. NOTRE DAME AT VILLANOVA It’s amazing that Notre Dame is still in the running for a No. 2 seed in the Big East Tournament. The Fighting Irish are one of five teams with either three or four losses. OHIO STATE AT MICHIGAN This is the most anticipated Ohio State-Michigan basketball game in many years. Both teams are still in the hunt for the regular-season Big Ten crown. LONG BEACH STATE AT CREIGHTON Creighton’s Doug McDermott is more wellknown nationally, but Long Beach State guard Casper Ware (17.1 ppg) is one of the elite midmajor players in the nation. SUNDAY, FEB. 19 MICHIGAN STATE AT PURDUE This is a game the Spartans need to win if they want to hang another Big Ten banner at the Breslin Center. SYRACUSE AT RUTGERS Syracuse is obviously the better team, but the Scarlet Knights have some nice wins at home this season. This isn’t a gimme for the Orange. INDIANA AT IOWA The Hoosiers’ spot in the NCAA Tournament is secure, but IU can improve its seed by adding some road wins to its résumé. The Hawkeyes have won three of the past four at home. OREGON AT STANFORD The Ducks are hanging around in the Pac-12, but they have three of their final five on the road. A split in the Bay Area would be huge. VANDERBILT AT GEORGIA This is the back-end of a tricky two-game road trip for Vanderbilt that begins with a Thursday night game at Ole Miss. If the Commodores shoot well, they should win in Athens. SOUTH FLORIDA AT PITTSBURGH This is not a misprint: South Florida is five games up on Pittsburgh in the loss column with three weeks to play in the regular season. The Panthers’ NCAA hopes are fading.

Arkansas’ Mitchell transitions from QB to hoops BY KURT VOIGT Associated Press

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Brandon Mitchell is accustomed to filling in when needed at Arkansas. A sophomore guard, Mitchell is also a backup quarterback for the Razorbacks. He joined the basketball team following the football team’s Cotton Bowl win over Kansas State on Jan. 6. It’s the second time he has taken to the hard court at Arkansas, following a brief

stint as a freshman two years ago. Similar to the first time when he saw action in four games, Mitchell’s impact appeared as though it would be limited this go-around. The 6-foot4 Mitchell was a standout basketball player in high school in Louisiana, resulting in a scholarship offer from LSU, but his game had evolved through football workouts and he is now more suited to interior play

after bulking up to 230 pounds. Still, Arkansas coach Mike Anderson saw an opportunity for Mitchell to contribute to a roster depleted by injuries. What Anderson saw, after Mitchell worked himself into basketball shape, was more than just another practice body. Anderson saw a natural leader. “In practice, he’s been doing some things that will catch your eye,” An-

derson said. “He has a good feel for the game. I think for a guy that plays the quarterback (position), he’s been in that leadership role. He talks to these guys and they listen.” Over the weekend, he did more than talk. Following a shoulder injury to starting forward Michael Sanchez, Arkansas (17-8, 5-5 Southeastern Conference) entered the South Carolina game Saturday with just eight

healthy scholarship players. And making matters worse, forward Hunter Mickelson was saddled with two quick first-half fouls. Enter Mitchell, who had played four minutes in three previous games. The quarterback looked every bit like a natural to SEC basketball, finishing with career highs in points (eight), rebounds (four) and minutes (16). Mitchell was particularly effective in the first half

with Mickelson on the bench, scoring six points and grabbing four rebounds as the Razorbacks began to pull away and improved to 17-0 in Bud Walton Arena this season with a 76-65 win. “It was great,” Mitchell said. “I hope it continues. I want to do whatever I can to help the team win. ... I feel very comfortable. It’s a lot easier than when I first started. I’m obviously in basketball shape and it feels a lot better.”

Horoscopes by Holiday BY HOLIDAY MATHIS For an instant lift, count your blessings in all areas of life. The expansive Sagittarius moon helps you get a perspective that’s as optimistic as it is broad. The Aquarian solar transit is wrapping up this week, and there’s pressure to get as much good as possible accomplished before the spiritual Pisces sun takes us in a new direction. ARIES (March 21-April 19). Whoever said there are two sides to every story was thinking incredibly small. Without too much effort, you can think of a dozen sides to today’s story, and you’ll choose the most positive version for your own records. TAURUS (April 20May 20). You’ll be caught between wanting things to occur in a predictable manner and knowing that would be a sure recipe for mind-numbing boredom. Liberate yourself. Let go of the controls. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You love a quirky old friend better than you could ever love any idealized version of friendship. You find the flaws endearing. In fact, they just might be the glue that holds this relationship together. CANCER (June 22July 22). Being well rested will make a great difference in your attitude. When your body feels strong, there is a crisp freshness to your general experience of life. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Go for excellence, not perfection. The first

Come Have Fun While Learning Godly Values & Mannerisms

will motivate you to be your best self. The second will drive you crazy, make everything take too long and cause much to go unfinished. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Don’t be afraid of being an outsider. Such a position could give you a distinct advantage now. You see all kinds of things from the outside that you could never see if you were in the thick of it. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). What would you do if you knew you were protected by a supernatural insurance policy that kept you from any physical, emotional or financial harm or liability? Go for it. SCORPIO (Oct. 24Nov. 21). You’ll have to sleuth a bit in order to understand the dynamics that affect your social life. Sometimes it’s what a person doesn’t say that says the most. Listen between the lines, and you’ll hear the real story. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll make sure your loved ones stay out of trouble. It’s a noble pursuit that may not seem to be working at first, although time will prove your efforts most effective. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). Generous souls abound. Mostly, they come out of the woodwork ready to give because they recognize you as one of their own. It will feel good to be seen for who you really are. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18). You’ll be the steady torchbearer, bringing light to a situation that has been in darkness for a

long, long while. Don’t be surprised if no one knows what to do next. For now, it’s enough to take it all in. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). In order for an organization to function, the work can never be fully completed. So don’t worry too much about the unfinished edges. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 16). This year is a real mix-up to your routine, and your life brightens with the challenges that come with the unexpected twists and turns. Over the next 10 weeks, you’ll concern yourself with the well-being of others and will blossom personally. You’ll manage your money well and fund a June adventure. Aries and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 2, 33, 49 and 18. FRIENDSHIP TIPS FROM THE STARS: Keep your relationship skills sharp and your friendships strong with these tips from the stars. GEMINI: Solo Up. Groups are typically your thing. You excel in a pack of like minds and diverse talents. While a lively gathering is usually

a blast, the intimacy that keeps friendship alive can get lost in the crowd. Fortify your friendships with solo time devoted exclusively to each person in your group. CANCER: Be You. Your nurturing nature sometimes prevents you from showing your true feelings, especially if you’re feeling blue. You never want to bring others down. Just remember that it’s OK to be honest with the people who love you, even when your true feelings are not pretty. If you always try to hide emotions such as sadness and anger, you’ll miss an opportunity for healthy bonding. Keep it real. LEO: Open Ears, Shut Mouth. Your diverse and colorful life has brought you so much experience that it’s rare that you ever hear a story you can’t relate to. Usually, you’ve either “been there” or been somewhere very much like there. Nonetheless, relating the story isn’t always necessary. So close the mouth, open the ears (and heart), and resist the need to share your every anecdote.

State senator proposes anti-abortion amendment BY EMILY WAGSTER PETTUS Associated Press

JACKSON — A Mississippi senator is proposing an anti-abortion constitutional amendment similar to one rejected by voters last November. Under the plan by Sen. Joey Fillingane, R-Sumrall, it would be the policy of Mississippi to “protect the life of every unborn child from conception to birth, to the extent permitted by the federal Constitution.” The “personhood” amendment that was rejected by 58 percent of Mississippi voters last year would have defined life as beginning at fertilization. Opponents worried it would restrict in-vitro fertilization, endanger women with ectopic pregnancies or outlaw some types of birth control. Fillingane told The Associated Press on Tuesday that he doesn’t expect his amendment to even get on the ballot this fall. He said he filed it Monday as a place-holder, in case some lawmakers want to move forward with it at some point during the fourmonth session that ends in early May. Thursday is the deadline for lawmakers to request the drafting of general bills or constitutional amendments to be considered this session. “I personally think more than likely what you will see with the Legislature is there are a whole number of bills dealing with regulations of the doctors who perform abortions and admitting privileges and all those kinds of things,” Fillingane said. His proposed amendment also says no public money could be used to pay for abortion, except to save the life of the pregnant woman. Mississippi law already

bans insurance coverage for abortions under any state-sponsored health exchange created under the 2009 federal health care overhaul. State law also prohibits public school nurses from providing abortion counseling to any student or referring any student to an abortion clinic. Fillingane said if his amendment goes on the ballot and is approved, abortion would still be legal in Mississippi as long as Roe v. Wade has not been overturned. The 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision established a right to abortion. Atlee Breland of Brandon is spokeswoman for Parents Against Personhood, a group that formed last year to fight the ballot initiative. She was at the Capitol Tuesday, asking senators to defeat Fillingane’s amendment. The life-at-fertilization amendment last year, Initiative 26, was decided the same day voters chose the current statewide officials and legislators. “We voted on it very clearly and unambiguously,” Breland said of the initiative. “We had the chance to consider both sides’ arguments. There were months and months of very aggressive campaigning from both sides, and the voters had a chance to think through how we wanted to vote. And we did that. I’m sorry that we’re going to have to do it again. Frankly, I’m very saddened by that. I think a lot of Mississippians are.” Les Riley of Pontotoc, who led the signaturegathering effort to put the “personhood” amendment on the 2011 ballot, was also at the Capitol Tuesday. He said he was aware of Fillingane’s proposal Tuesday but hadn’t had time to study it.

Davis talks about business dealings BY YOLANDA JONES The Commercial Appeal

SOUTHAVEN — Southaven Mayor Greg Davis, speaking publicly for the first time about business dealings that benefited friends and associates, said he believes he did nothing wrong because the city’s aldermen approved all transactions. Davis spoke Monday with The Commercial Appeal about deals involving a Florida condominium he co-owns with a developer who has received more than $3.4 million through real estate dealings with the city since 2008, a fire station that could cost taxpayers up to $4 million because of an unusual no-bid contract negotiated by Davis, and other recently reported transactions. The mayor, absent from city business on a 30-day leave for medical treatment when most of the dealings were uncovered, addressed the topics during a lengthy interview. Davis, who is under criminal investigation for misuse of city funds after being ordered by the state auditor to repay about $170,000, said he couldn’t do anything without approval from the board of aldermen. “What I think people need to realize is I don’t sign contracts without board authority,” said Davis, 45. “I don’t approve payments, so I don’t see how there could be any correlation between me returning favors for anyone because I am not the decision-maker. My job is to implement the policies approved by the board.” One alderman responded to Davis’ comments by saying again

“I was elected to do a job. Have I been perfect? No, no one is perfect, but I done my best to do what is in the best interest of the citizens.” Greg Davis Southhaven Mayor that the mayor kept them in the dark about much of what he was doing. “He would bring us the deals that we trusted him to present honestly and ethically but would give us half the story,” Alderman Ronnie Hale said. “He is speaking out to the media now because he is in this blame game, trying to take the heat off himself so he will look better. But we are not playing games with him. We are here to do what is in the best interest of the citizens.” Davis said he’s also trying to do what’s best for the citizens. “I can say that the decisions made out of my office are not based on any friendships,” he said. “There have been several times that it would have been easy for me to lead the board in a direction on a deal, but I have not done that. “I was elected to do a job. Have I been perfect? No, no one is perfect, but I done my best to do what is in the best interest of the citizens.” A groundswell of opposition to Davis in the wake of revelations about his spending and dealings has led to calls for his resignation and moves by aldermen, also under fire for perceived lack of oversight, to correct problems that allowed much of the spending to occur. Aldermen are looking into having an independent audit of city finances. But Davis, who has

vowed not to resign, pointed to some of the deals reported over the past month as examples of how he was trying to do what he thought was in the city’s best interest. About the 2008 fire station deal, in which the city chose to lease property for a station, Davis said he was given the go-ahead by the board to enter the lease deal at $30,000 a month in rent. Davis said he believed leasing the fire station was a good deal because at the time, the city’s sales tax collections were down. “I think the city made the right decision to lease the fire station because at the time the city was headed into a recession,” he said. He added that he believes the seven-member board of aldermen reacted to public pressure when they voted recently to issue bonds to buy the fire station for $3.2 million rather than continuing to rent it for $5.5 million under the 15-year lease. “In my opinion, it is still not the best time to buy that station,” Davis said. “I think the city should look at every alternative before making the final decision to purchase that property.” Businessmen David Gary Murphy and Stephen M. Gross, who built and own the fire station, contributed thousands to Davis’ unsuccessful 2008 congressional campaign in the months leading up to the lease signing.

The city also is covering the developers’ property taxes for the site at $12,000 a year. Davis said friends and associates such as Chuck Roberts and Jamie Harris were given business with the city because he wanted to keep city business in the city. Regarding a 20-acre site where Roberts’ firm, RH Holdings, pocketed $45,000 for a single day’s work, Davis said he didn’t know how much his friend made from the transaction. “I was not there when he closed on the deal,” Davis said. “I can’t emphasize enough that a mayor in a co-chartered city, by law, doesn’t enter into land deals or authorize payments on these deals.” Davis also said that the Florida condo he owns with Roberts was a bad decision, but that it was a personal one. He said he and Roberts are trying to sell the property quickly. “We are upside down on that property,” he said. “It was a bad investment made with my personal money. I did not disclose it to the board that I owned a condo with Mr. Roberts because it was a personal issue that had nothing to do with the city.” An investigation by The Commercial Appeal found that Roberts has received more than $3.4 million through real estate deals with the city since 2008. About credit card reimbursements that led to the repayment order from the state auditor, Davis said he could not discuss it because of the ongoing state and federal investigation. “I just want the public to be patient and wait because all the facts will come out,” Davis said.
