Annual tree giveaway tops 3,000, mainly pines email@example.com
Warmer weather has the area in a planting mood. Forestry agencies provided over 3,000 seedlings Friday to help those who are ready to get the growing season started. The annual tree giveaway of the Alcorn County Extension Service, Forestry Commission and the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service saw a slow start in distributing the free seedlings. “A lot of folks called in asking about the trees, but I think the weather earlier this week has
thrown their schedules off,” said Patrick Poindexter, County Director with the Mississippi State Extension Service. Representatives with the three agencies arrived early to hand out the trees on Valentine’s Day. “I have been advising men to not give the trees as a Valentine’s gift,” said Poindexter with a smile. Around 3,000 of the seedlings were pines with another couple hundred being of the hardwood variety. “The trees don’t have to be planted right after getting

them,” said Poindexter. “If people get them planted the next couple of days, they will be fine … the main thing is to keep them outside and not let them dry out. If the trees dry out they will be no good.” National Arbor Day is the last Friday in April, but most southern states celebrate the event in other months. Mississippi’s Arbor Day celebration is always scheduled for the second Friday in February. This year marked the second time the local event was held at the extension service instead of the Alcorn County Courthouse.

Several agencies assisted in quickly capturing the two. The agencies involved included the Alcorn County Sheriff’s Department, Corinth Police Department, Farmington Police Department and Alcorn County Constables.
8th member of ring sentenced to prison BY JEBB JOHNSTON firstname.lastname@example.org
An eighth individual accused of being part of a north Mississippi drug ring has been sentenced to prison time. U.S. District Court Judge Sharion Aycock sentenced Marty Lambert of Booneville to serve seven years and four months in custody of the U.S. Bureau of Prisons on a plea of guilty following his indictment for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine and marijuana. He must also serve three years of probation following his release. Aycock handed down the sentence in a hearing Thursday in Aberdeen.
Lambert was part of a group of 10 accused of arranging the purchase and shipment of drugs into the region, storing the drugs in stash houses and distributing them to local buyers. The indictment covers a period from Oct. 1, 2011, to May 31, 2012. Lambert was 43 at the time the arrests were announced. The group included five Corinthians. Among them are the last two individuals awaiting sentencing following prior guilty pleas — Jay Hill and Kenneth Scales. The charge carries a maximum penalty of up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $1 million.
Local extras Burns back in saddle included in for 100th birthday Brown biopic BY STEVE BEAVERS
BY STEVE BEAVERS email@example.com
An Iuka mother and her son got the feelin’. Sherry Brown and her 17-yearold son, Jagger, took part in a oneday shooting of the film “Get On Up” in early January at the Mississippi Coliseum in Jackson. The biopic of funk music legend James Brown was shot in Natchez and Jackson. The Browns served as extras during a scene about the “Godfather of Soul” on Jan. 7. “It was fun and we had a great time,” said Sherry. The mother and son were part of around 100 extras used in a scene from a Brown 1971 concert in Paris. Brown, who is supervisor at the Alcorn County Welcome Center, decided to give it a shot because of Jagger. “He wants to get into the business and I found a casting notice Please see BROWN | 2
Just like old times. It crossed Freddie “Freddie Boy” Burns mind as he took a couple of laps around the Crossroads Arena on a horse named Boots. All eyes were fixed on the 100-year-old cowboy as he climbed into the saddle for the first time since 1957. “It felt natural,” said Burns after dismounting a horse named Boots with the help of friends. “I grew up riding bareback mules in Prentiss County and use to ride with my band at the Central Riding Academy in Memphis, Tenn.” Burns’ wish was to get back on a horse when he turned 100. Members of the 4-H Showdeo Club made it possible Saturday morning. “He wanted to be back on a horse when he was 100 and have his picture taken,” said Hal Cooper, who attends
Danville Church of Christ with Burns. “Fred told us we could put ‘he is back in the saddle again’ under the picture.” “It was a honor to let him ride,” said Lee Bo Wilhite, who is over the Showdeo Club. “As he was getting on the horse, he got to telling us about the old days.” The old days for Burns, a former Corinth resident, included a radio and television broadcast career with the band Freddie Burns and His Ranch Boys. “We were a real county and western Band,” said Burns, who celebrated his 100th birthday on Feb. 1. The band was offered a chance to be regulars at the Grand Ole Opry and to make movies with Gene Autry. Both invitations were declined, according to Freddie Boy. “We weren’t after all of

SCAM Be advised that computer firms such as Microsoft will never make unsolicited phone calls to consumers to report computer glitches or viruses, nor will they offer to diagnose and fix issues over the phone. “We want consumers to be aware of who they are doing business with before they grant permission to access their computer,” said O’Hara. “BBB is here to assist consumers in finding trustworthy companies to do business with.” According to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), they’ve been cracking down on these scams and continue to diligently investigate and prosecute them. Customers who paid for bogus tech support services with a credit card are urged to to call their bank or credit card company immediately to dispute charges. “It is definitely a scam,” said Kevin Roberts at
AVS Internet Computers in Corinth. “Microsoft has no reason to call and request money or notify you that your PC is infected.” The only company who would ever call about such issues would be the customer’s internet provider, said Roberts. Several AVS customers have received calls, including Roberts’ wife. “Luckily, she realized it was a scam and hung up,” said Roberts. The following advice is given to those who receive a so-called “Tech Support” call: ■ Don’t trust cold calls. Never provide your credit card or financial information to anyone over the phone that you don’t know. ■ Take the caller’s information and report it to local law enforcement authorities and the FTC. ■ Install virus detection to help protect your computer against viruses. ■ Find a computer repair company you can trust.

Phil Bryant, says the state could provide rebates of up to $10 million per project for nationally distributed feature films, documentaries and television shows. James Brown died in 2006 at the age of 73. Top hits included “I Got You,” “I Got the Feelin’,” “Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag” and “Get Up.” “Get On Up” is slated to hit theaters Aug. 1.

Once the mother talked with the casting director, he asked if she would be interested in being an extra herself. “I always try to make sure Jagger goes for his dreams,” said the mother about her son. “We found out the more scenes he is in, the more notoriety he gets.” “I would have done it for free,” added Jagger. “The upscale is we got

Today in history Today is Tuesday, Feb. 18, the 49th day of 2014. There are 316 days left in the year.
Today’s Highlight in History: On Feb. 18, 1564, artist Michelangelo Buonarroti died in Rome, just weeks before his 89th birthday.
On this date: In 1861, Jefferson Davis was sworn in as provisional president of the Confederate States of America in Montgomery, Ala. In 1885, Mark Twain’s “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” was published in the U.S. for the first time. In 1913, Mexican President Francisco I. Madero and Vice President Jose Maria Pino Suarez were arrested during a military coup (both were shot to death on Feb. 22). In 1930, photographic evidence of Pluto (now designated a “dwarf planet”) was discovered by Clyde W. Tombaugh at Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Ariz. In 1939, the Golden Gate International Exposition opened on Treasure Island in San Francisco. In 1943, Madame Chiang Kai-shek, the wife of the Chinese leader, addressed members of the Senate and then the House, becoming the first Chinese national to address both houses of the U.S. Congress. In 1953, “Bwana Devil,” the movie that heralded the 3D fad of the 1950s, had its New York opening. In 1970, the “Chicago Seven” defendants were found not guilty of conspiring to incite riots at the 1968 Democratic national convention; five were convicted of violating the AntiRiot Act of 1968 (those convictions were later reversed). In 1984, Italy and the Vatican signed an accord under which Roman Catholicism ceased to be the state religion of Italy. In 1994, at the Winter Olympic Games in Norway, U.S. speedskater Dan Jansen finally won a gold medal, breaking the world record in the 1,000 meters. In 2001, auto racing star Dale Earnhardt Sr. died in a crash at the Daytona 500; he was 49.

UNA Faculty Grand Recital brings audience on stage BY HANNAH MASK UNA Student Writer
FLORENCE, Ala. — Eight faculty members from the University of North Alabama’s Department of Music and Theatre will perform in concert tonight in order to raise funds for UNA music scholarships. The 2014 Faculty Grand Recital, which begins at 7:30 p.m. in Norton Auditorium, has been tailored to intensify the experience of audience members, said Carole Maynard, the department’s event coordinator. “The set-up will be different this year to provide a more intimate, salon-style performance,” Maynard said. “The audience will sit in chairs on the Norton stage with the performers.” Because of the new set-up, a limited number of tickets (approximately 150-200) will be sold.
Tickets are $15 and can be purchased in advance at the Kennedy-Douglass Center for the Arts in downtown Florence, or online at www.una.edu/ music-theatre. Tickets will also be available at the door on a first-come, first-served basis. All proceeds will go toward creating music scholarships at the university. Dr. David McCullough, chair of the music and theatre department, said that while the faculty recital is a fairly new event, it’s one that has been in the works for years. “Hopefully, it’s an entertaining event and one people can enjoy on an artistic level,” he said. “It’s also an event people may enjoy because it so directly benefits our music students.” The 2013 faculty recital raised $1,000 in scholarship funds, McCullough added.
“This recital is a way to highlight the program and to show that the faculty supports their students,” said McCullough, who will play horn in the ensemble. Performers include Meghan Merciers, clarinet; Whitney O’Neal, flute; Eddie Elsey, trombone; Yi-Min Cai, piano; and Viljar Weimann, violin. Tiffany Bostic-Brown will sing soprano, and Terrance Brown will sing baritone. “We make opportunities available for people to contribute to the program at any time, and those who can’t attend may decide to contribute in honor of the recital,” McCullough said. “Some have decided to do that, and we are certainly happy to accept those contributions.” For more information, contact the UNA Department of Music and Theatre by calling 256-7655122.

Briefs Headstart evacuated PISGAH — A hot running refrigerator led to the evacuation of Pisgah Headstart Monday after staff members reported a smell of smoke filling the building. Approximately 16 students were evacuated from the building as firefighters traced the source of the smell to a malfunctioning motor in the refrigerator, said Pisgah Volunteer Fire Department Chief Gary Yancey. Headstart staff members called 911 around 8:20 a.m. and firefighters were on the scene within eight minutes. Yancey said they initially thought the strong smell was coming from wiring in the attic but then discovered the issue with the refrigerator. The appliance was removed from the building and fans were used to help get the smell out. Yancey said classes were canceled for the day and were to resume as normal Tuesday. There was no damage to the building. Yancey said the school’s electrician and employees with the Prentiss County Electric Power Association helped trace the source of the problem and confirm the
building’s electrical system was safe. Yancey and six firefighters from the Pisgah department responded to the fire along with the county fire truck based at the Booneville Fire Department.
Phone theft brings shoplifting charge BOONEVILLE — A Booneville man dialed up a felony charge after allegedly stealing nearly a dozen cell phones from a local retailer. James Stanley Arnold, also known as Jimmy Arnold, 45, of 904 Jim Drewry Drive in Booneville, has been arrested and charged with one count of felony shoplifting. BPD Chief Michael Ramey said Arnold is accused of taking 10 cell phones from the Wal-Mart Supercenter in Booneville. Bond for Arnold was set at $7,500. In a separate, unrelated arrest, Tasha Marie McVey, 36, of 211 Elder Lake Road, Booneville, has been charged with felony bad check. Ramey said McVey is accused of passing a check to an individual in the amount of $300 that was returned by the bank for insufficient funds. Her bond was set at $1,000.

Silver Airways cuts select one-way fares The Associated Press
TUPELO — Silver Airways will offer one-way tickets between Tupelo and Atlanta for $48, plus tax, beginning by the end of the month. Such tickets currently cost between $55 and $166, depending on the day of departure. The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports the fare reduction comes on the heels of Silver’s decision to reduce the number of weekly flights from 36 to 24, starting March 3.
Tupelo officials had asked the Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based airline to reduce the number of flights in hopes of improving Silver’s performance, which has been fraught with cancellations and delays since its service began 16 months ago. Passenger boardings have plummeted since Silver began service in October 2012. Boardings fell to 5,331 last year, a 31 percent drop from a year earlier and the lowest total in some three decades.

McCain continues fight for Vietnam’s catfish industry One of the interesting side notes of the fight on Capitol Hill over the 2014 Farm Bill was the continued battle by U.S. Sen. John McCain to protect the Vietnamese catfish industry. An ABC News reported reSid Salter cently estimated that more Columnist than 80 percent of American seafood is now imported from China, Vietnam and other countries in the region. In 2011, McCain said: “Vietnamese catfish remain popular with American consumers because it’s more affordable and cheaper to produce than domestic catfish grown in aquaculture ponds.” Over the last decade, U.S. catfish production has declined by more than 50 percent. Undaunted, McCain issued the following floor statement in the wake of the Farm Bill’s impending passage: “Another bizarre handout in this Farm Bill is the creation of a Catfish Office inside the U.S. Department of Agriculture. At a cost of $15 million a year, USDA will hire inspectors to visually inspect catfish in seafood facilities and only catfish. “(Democratic New Hampshire U.S. Sen. Jeanne) Shaheen and I (and 11 other senators) have sponsored legislation to kill this catfish program. In 2012, our legislation was adopted in the Senate by voice vote. Last year, the House Agriculture Committee passed a bipartisan amendment to repeal it in the Farm Bill. Despite all of this opposition, the unpopular Catfish Office resiliently survived conference! “Americans do not need a new USDA catfish inspection program. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) already tests catfish along with all other seafood. But certain Farm Bill conferees are insisting on creating a Catfish Office because catfish farmers in southern states don’t want to compete against foreign catfish importers. Its true purpose is trade protectionism at the taxpayer’s expense. Under this Farm Bill, there will be a virtual ban on catfish imports for several years while foreign inspectors switch from FDA’s inspection procedures to USDA’s catfish procedures. “American consumers should also be concerned about the trade implications of this program. Some nations, including Vietnam, have threatened WTO retaliation against American agriculture exports, like beef and soybeans. Trade experts warn that this catfish gimmick is the kind of protectionism that harms our efforts to win concessions under trade agreement negotiations like the Trans Pacific Partnership, which could reduce tariffs on American products sold to Asian trading partners. “Again, Sen. Shaheen and I tried to eliminate the Catfish Office in the Senate’s Farm Bill, but the managers blocked a vote on our amendment. The House Agriculture Committee did the right thing and passed a Farm Bill amendment to eliminate it. Unfortunately when this bill went to conference, several Senate conferees blocked a vote in conference to repeal it and actually rewrote the law to fortify it.” McCain has tried to blame Mississippi U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran as the sole defender of the catfish inspection legislation, but the fact is that a host of Southern lawmakers are in that fight. Sessions recently said: “The reasons for implementing this program are just as real and present as they were when Congress rightly authorized the inspection program in 2008. FDA currently inspects U.S. catfish facilities. However, FDA inspects less than 2 percent of imported seafood, and government (reports) and independent analysis continue to show banned drugs and chemicals in fish imported from Vietnam and China, placing American consumers at risk.” McCain’s fight on behalf of producers the fish native to Vietnam is noteworthy on two fronts. First, it puts McCain in the position of defending the business interests of the country that held him as a prisoner-of-war during the Vietnam War. Second, it puts McCain in the forefront of a policy debate that ultimately benefits China more than Vietnam – to say nothing of the impact on the U.S. pond-raised catfish industry.

Voters may enshrine right to hunt, fish BY JACK ELLIOTT JR. JACKSON — Mississippi voters will decide in November whether to amend the state constitution to guarantee the right to hunt and fish. The Legislature decided 2012 to put the issue before voters, but kept it off the ballot until 2014. The 2012 ballot already had heavy constitutional and polarizing proposals — the abortion-related “personhood” amendment, which failed, and new eminent domain restrictions, which passed. The guarantee of the right to hunt and fish needs majority support from voters in November to become enshrined in the Mississippi Constitution. “There are some states where it is considered a privilege to hunt and fish; other states it is a right. This is a little layer of protection ... making hunting and fishing steadfast against those who may want to infringe on those rights,” said Jim Walker, spokesman for the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks, which supported the authorizing legislation, House Concurrent Resolution 30. Adding the language to state constitutions makes
it harder to change, since doing so typically requires legislative action followed by approval of voters. Mississippi is the latest in a string of states that have passed or are considering right-to-hunt measures to head off feared attacks on the pastime. “We’re hoping to send a message to the rest of the country that we are passionate about our hunting and fishing. We don’t want anybody dabbling with our sportsmen’s way of life,” said Rep. Lester “Bubba” Carpenter, R-Burnsville, lead sponsor of the resolution. According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, 17 states guarantee the right to hunt and fish in their constitutions. Vermont’s language dates back to 1777, while the remainder — in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming — have been adopted since 1996. California and Rhode Island have language in their constitutions guaranteeing the right to fish, but not to hunt.
Supporters are motivated by concerns over animal rights groups that have challenged hunting rights elsewhere. They say the amendments would deter new limits on hunting seasons, restrictions on hunting weapons or further protections for prey other than those mandated under endangered species laws. Opponents say such provisions clutter a constitution and overstate the threat to sportsmen’s activities. Officials of one animal rights group, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, have called such proposals a solution in search of a problem. Other skeptics say they can’t envision a scenario in which lawmakers would try to ban hunting or fishing. There doesn’t appear to be any group organizing to advocate for or against the Mississippi measure. However, right-to-hunt amendments, which generally give citizens “the right to hunt, fish and harvest wildlife” subject to existing laws and regulations, are backed by a loose nationwide alliance of hunting and gun advocacy groups. Mississippi House Wildlife Committee Chairman Scott Bounds, R-Phila-
delphia, said the proposal passed both houses overwhelmingly. Bounds, one of 34 cosponsors on HCR 30, said the Legislature is asking voters “to protect, treasure and enjoy these traditions for future generations of Mississippi sportsmen for many years to come.” The proposal won’t change the Mississippi wildlife commission’s ability to regulate hunting and fishing or the Legislature’s ability pass hunting and fishing laws. The measure also won’t affect laws regarding trespass, property rights, maintenance of levees or regulation of commercial activities. Walker, of Mississippi’s wildlife and fisheries agency, said people spend lots of money on hunting and fishing: “From the guy who sells you that four-wheel drive truck to the guy who hands you that sausage and biscuit in the morning at the local coffee shop as you head out to hunt ... all of that represents millions of dollars in the economy.” (Daily Corinthian columnist Jack Elliott Jr. covers Mississippi politics and legal affairs for The Associated Press based in Jackson.)
Is the Tea Party’s dream an illusion? “There is no education in the second kick of a mule,” said Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. With some such thought in mind, Speaker John Boehner strode to the floor of the House to offer a “clean” debt ceiling bill and relied on Nancy Pelosi’s Democrats to pass it. They did. “Surrender” and “betrayal,” are among the epithets coming the Speaker’s way. Yet Boehner was holding a losing hand. Had he added a GOP wish-list bill to the debt ceiling, Harry Reid’s Senate would have rejected it. President Obama would have denounced it as putting at risk the full faith and credit of the United States. Big Media would have piled on. The markets would have been rattled. Corporate America, cash cow of the Republican Party, would have begun to howl. A clamor to pass a clean debt ceiling bill or risk a new recession would have arisen. And the House Republicans would have caved, as they finally had to cave on the budget bill last fall.

Rather than play Lord Raglan and lead his cavalry in another Charge of Pat the Light BriBuchanan gade, Boehner chose to Columnist withdraw to fight another day on another field. Yet, the Tea Party has a right to feel cheated. When does the Republican Party, put in power by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance? If the Tea Party is in some despair, is it not understandable? For while there are countless proposals and plans to cut back on federal spending, from Simpson-Bowles on, it is impossible today to see in either party the political will to do the surgery. Consider what would be needed to roll back Big Government. First, the major entitlement programs Medicare and Social Security would have to be peeled back. But
any effort to raise the age of eligibility, or reduce the benefits, or trim cost-ofliving adjustments, would meet with ferocious resistance, led by the AARP. Indeed, many Tea Party members are themselves among those enjoying, or about to enjoy, the benefits of these programs. Would they back cuts in either one? Democrats say these programs must be expanded, and they will resist any cuts as fiercely as the Republicans would resist any increase in payroll or income taxes. Social Security and Medicare recipients number in the scores of millions. Four million Baby Boomers reach eligibility every year now. That is more then 10,000 every day. Is any party, even a GOP that controls the White House and Congress, going to take on this army? Consider that other entitlement, Medicaid. Thanks to Obamacare, the number of beneficiaries of Medicaid is soaring. And even should the GOP capture the Senate in 2016, a Democratic minority would filibuster to death any bill to

cut Medicaid. As for interest on the debt, another major element in the budget, it has only one way to go, up. For the Fed freeze that has held interest rates near zero for five years must some day end. Defense is the other big item in the budget. But while the wind-down of our trillion-dollar wars in Iraq and Afghanistan has made cuts possible here, most of these have already been made. Can it be that the Tea Party’s dream of a balanced budget, and of a government that ceases to eat up ever more of the GDP, is simply an act of self-delusion? Have the beneficiaries of Big Government become so powerful that any champion of the national interest who challenges them in fixed battle invites almost certain defeat? For today, America appears to be maintaining speed, or even accelerating, toward that cliff that they all warn us is out there. Patrick J. Buchanan is the author of “Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?”

Mother charged with babyâ€™s murder MEMPHIS, Tenn. â€” A body discovered in a ditch over the weekend is that of a 7-week-old baby who went missing more than five weeks ago, and the infantâ€™s mother has been charged with first-degree murder, Memphis Police said Monday. The physical description and clothing on the body discovered Sunday in Millington, about a half-hour north of Memphis, matched that of Aniston Walker, who was reported missing Jan. 9, police said in a news release. Police did not say how the baby died. An autopsy was being conducted Monday. The babyâ€™s mother, Andrea Walker, told police that Aniston disappeared after she left the baby at home with her 3-year-old child while taking her 5-yearold child to school. Police said Walker called the childâ€™s father, who does not live at the same address, and he reported the baby missing. Walker then left the house again â€” leaving the 3-year-old alone in the house for an hour â€” as she traveled to several locations around the city. Police Director Toney Armstrong said at the time that Walker was not as forthcoming with investigators as they could have wished. Before Anistonâ€™s body was discovered, Walker had pleaded not guilty to charges of aggravated child abuse or ne-
glect. She was free on $250,000 bond before she turned herself in on Monday. Â
GOP looks ahead after union defeat CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. â€” Republicans fighting a yearslong unionization effort at the Volkswagen plant in Tennessee painted a grim picture in the days leading up to last weekâ€™s vote. They said if Chattanooga employees joined the United Auto Workers, jobs would go elsewhere and incentives for the company would disappear. Now that workers have rejected the UAW in a close vote, attention turns to whether the GOP can fulfill its promises that keeping the union out means more jobs will come rolling in, the next great chapter in the flourishing of foreign auto makers in the South. Regardless of what political consequences, if any, Republicans would face if that fails to happen, the Volkswagen vote established a playbook for denying the UAW its goal of expanding into foreignowned plants in the region, which the union itself has called the key to its long-term future. On the first of three days of voting at the Chattanooga plant, U.S. Sen. Bob Corker all but guaranteed the German automaker would announce within two weeks of a union rejection that it would build a new midsized sport utility vehicle at its only U.S. factory instead of sending the work to

Mexico. â€œWhat they wanted me to know, unsolicited, that if the vote goes negative, theyâ€™re going to announce immediately that theyâ€™re going to build a second line,â€? Corker told The Associated Press of his conversations with unnamed Volkswagen officials. Â
Sentencing set for counterfeiter OXFORD â€” A Baldwyn woman who pleaded guilty in a counterfeit money case is scheduled for sentencing Feb. 28. Wendy Nicole Vick was charged in August with two counts of creating and passing counterfeit currency. She pleaded guilty in October in U. S. District Court in Aberdeen to one count of making fake money. The indictment said she made and used the fake bills in June 2010. Her sentencing is to take place in federal court in Oxford. Â
Snow in Midwest disrupts air travel Travelers suffered through another difficult day Monday as winterâ€™s icy grip caused airlines to delay and cancel more flights. By late afternoon Monday, nearly 1,200 flights in the U.S. had been canceled and an additional 3,000 had been delayed, according to tracking service FlightAware.com. Chicago was hit hardest, as the area was caught in a storm that was expected to drop up to 8 inches of snow by Monday night before moving into the MidAtlantic and Northeast on Tuesday. Nearly 500 departures were canceled Monday at Chicagoâ€™s two big airports, Oâ€™Hare and Midway, and many flights headed to the city were also scrubbed, FlightAware said. The Chicago department of aviation said most of the cancellations were proactive â€” announced ahead of the storm. American Eagle, the regional affiliate of American Airlines, and Southwest, which has a big operation at Midway, had canceled more than 200 flights each. Â

Hattiesburg museum to begin expansion HATTIESBURG â€” A planned expansion of the Mississippi Armed Forces Museum at Camp Shelby will add 6,000 square feet of multi-use space, allowing the facility to host bigger traveling exhibits. It will also create more space for meetings and events. Museum director Chad Daniels tells WDAM-TV of Laurel/Hattiesburg that other work will involve enclosing a central courtyard and overhauling existing exhibit areas. Daniels says the state has provided $2 million and the museum hopes to raise another $1 million from private donations. Daniels says the museum has had to turn away some traveling exhibits from the Smithsonian and the Japanese-American Historical Society because space wasnâ€™t available. He says the new meet-
ing area will be able to handle up to 400 people. Â
Job fair planned in Philadelphia PHILADELPHIA â€” More than 25 companies, some seeking forklift operators, accounting clerks, sales representatives and various other employees, will be part of the Mid-Mississippi Area Job Fair on Feb. 27. The Neshoba Democrat reports Loweâ€™s Home Improvement hopes to fill nine positions, mostly customer service associates for such departments as tools and hardware, paint, building material, inside and outside lawn and garden and plumbing. Representatives from Hardy Manufacturing Co. seek to fill production line positions while Citizens Bank will also seek employees for various positions. Tyson Foods says it has 25 positions to fill.

Jimmy Ray Pyle
IUKA — Funeral services for Jimmy Ray Pyle, 70, are set for 1 p.m. today at Magnolia Funeral Home Chapel of Memories with burial in Hebron Cemetery in Iuka. Mr. Pyle died Saturday, February 15, 2014 at North Mississippi Medical Center. Born October 24, 1943, he was a Christian. Jimmy Ray Pyle was a true revolutionary, he engaged in all aspects of his life with great passion. As such he lived out his dreams through his family, friends and the work he believed in. Most people knew Jimmy be- Pyle cause of music which was one of the things he loved the most. He learned to play the guitar at age 5 and was dedicated to the music industry his entire life. He was a performer, musician, song writer, studio owner, producer and radio station owner. He was involved in countless bands throughout his life and he was a mentor to many artist who were just starting out such as Daryl Worley and Billy Lawson. Son of Grand Old Opry star Pete Pyle, he began Country Fox Studios, Pyle Publishing and was actively involved in the Pyle-Roser Music Group. He was a self-made businessman, he created an automation system for radio stations and brought the first local TV station to Red Bay, Ala. He started three carpet stores and was also a carpenter who built houses. He was an inventor who had a natural understanding of complex subjects. He enjoyed working with technology and was always innovative in his approach. Jimmy was also a pilot and really loved to fly. Despite the fact that he always stayed busy with his various endeavors, he would never hesitate to help someone who needed him. This is certainly evident by his work in the American Red Cross and by his deep devotion to the ones he loved. To sum up the life of Jimmy Pyle is to say that he was immersed in his passions to which he was a visionary. He never gave up seeking out what he loved in life and he always wanted those who he shared his life with to prosper along side him.

Pastor dies from rattlesnake bite MIDDLESBORO, Ky. — Jamie Coots, a snakehandling Kentucky pastor who appeared on the National Geographic television reality show “Snake Salvation,” died Saturday after being bitten by a snake. Coots was handling a rattlesnake during a Saturday night service at his Full Gospel Tabernacle in Jesus Name Church in Middlesboro when he was bit, another preacher, Cody Winn, told WBIR-TV. “Jamie went across the floor. He had one of the rattlers in his hand, he came over and he was standing beside me. It was plain view, it just turned its head and bit him in the back of the hand ... within a second,” Winn said. When an ambulance arrived at the church at 8:30 p.m., they were told Coots had gone home, the Middlesboro Police Department said in a news release. Contacted at his house, Coots refused medical treatment. Emergency workers left about 9:10 p.m. When they returned about an hour later, Coots was dead from a venomous snake bite, police said. In January 2013, Coots was caught transporting three rattlesnakes and two copperheads through Knoxville, Tenn. Wildlife officials confiscated the snakes, and Coots pleaded guilty to illegally wildlife possession. He was given one year of unsupervised probation. Coots said then he needed the snakes for religious reasons, citing a Bible passage in the book of Mark that reads, in part: “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new
tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.” After he was bitten Saturday night, Coots dropped the snakes, but then picked them back up and continued on. Within minutes, Winn said Coots headed to the bathroom. His son, Cody, told the television station his dad had been bit eight times before, but never had such a severe reaction. Cody Coots said he thought the bite would be just like all the others. In 1995, 28-year-old Melinda Brown, of Parrottsville, Tenn., died after being bitten at Coot’s church by a 4-foot-long timber rattlesnake. Her relatives disputed accounts that the mother of five had been holding the snake that bit her and disagreed with witnesses who said she refused medical treatment as she suffered the effects of the venom for two days at Coots’ home. The Bell County attorney at the time wanted to prosecute under a 1942 state law that made it illegal to handle or display snakes during religious services. But the judge refused to sign the criminal complaint.

PASCAGOULA — An Ocean Springs man is going to trial Feb. 24 on charges of allegedly dousing his girlfriend in gasoline and setting her on fire. The Sun Herald reports that 28-year-old Richard Lee Luss II will stand trial for aggravated domestic violence. Gautier police say authorities responded Nov. 27, 2011, to a fire at the home Luss shared with the victim, a 22-year-old
woman. They found the woman suffering from burns over more than 85 percent of her body. Police say they arrested Luss on Mach 26, 2012, after the woman was able to tell authorities what happened. Luss has been held without bond at the Jackson County jail since his arrest. If convicted, Luss faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.

Barron named Penn State president STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Eric Barron, a former professor and dean at Penn State University and president of Florida State University, was chosen Monday to lead Pennsylvania’s largest university as it continues grappling with fallout from the Jerry Sandusky scandal. He’ll bring with him the experience of managing a major state university known as much for its for storied athletic program as its academic mission, as well as the fallout from a sex-abuse scandal with ties to big-time college football. Penn State trustees unanimously approved the selection at a special meeting in State College after a 15-month search process in which university officials had kept the new president’s identity secret, refusing to confirm whether Barron was even being considered until the meeting began. Barron, who worked at Penn State for 20 years, including four as dean of its College of Earth and Mineral Sciences, will succeed President Rodney Erickson, who plans to retire when his contract expires in June. Barron is getting a five-year contract worth $1 million a year and will start in May, if not sooner.

in Biloxi. Police say 36-year-old Toyoka Malone was arrested Saturday after she entered a Winn-Dixie grocery store and used a stolen credit card to buy eight re-loadable Visa cards worth $400 each for a total of $3,200. The Sun-Herald reports an employee noticed Malone and another woman — each wearing disguises — buying the cards. Police say the employee recognized the women from a December news report in which the suspects wore similar disguises. The employee confronted the women, who fled. The employee and another person followed Malone until officers arrived. The second suspect remains at large. Officers seized a rental car and 11 re-loadable Visa cards. Malone was booked into the Harrison County Jail. Bond was set at $50,000.

Internet - Good or Bad As technology gets more complicated, so do the problems that arise along with it. Viruses, worms, spyware, trojan horses abound in the world known as the internet and the only way to protect oneself from such is to have security programs to defeat these computer corrupters. To make matters worse, not only has the internet aided in destroying hard drives and stealing personal information - credit card numbers - social security numbers, and much more, but it has also aided in destroying man’s soul. Fortunately, we have God’s internet security. Unlike the best internet security that man can buy today which is outdated on the morrow. God’s internet security never needs an update. However, in order for it to work it must be downloaded properly and maintained in our life. The technical deﬁnition for downloading is this: “the transferring of data from one device to the memory of another device.” Therefore, when downloading God’s internet security we are taking the data from His Word and putting it into our memory - the heart. It is the same process today as it was when the Psalmist said, “Thy Word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee” - Psalm 119:11. So, what are the instructions for transferring this data into out lives to safeguard our interest usage? Set your affection on things above - Col. 3:1-3. The internet is ﬁlled with earthly things that are sensual and devilish - James 3:15 - and these things are easily accessed at the click of a button. Gone are the days when men must go outside the home to view pornographic material, hit the slots, chat with a prospective lover or even join a gang or cults. These things are now piped into our home. Electronic sin is on the rage, yet this ﬁrst step will help ensure our soul’s security online. Interesting ourselves or exercising our minds with godliness is the only way to refrain our feet from every evil way - Psalms 119:101. Perhaps the best advice when using the internet is to get in, get out, and get off the “Net” before our affection is caught in a web of sin. It is Satan that causes men to turn aside by his great temptation on the internet and in the world. When one becomes a friend of the world, he has caused himself to become the enemy of God. The message of God can be read - the message of Satan can be read on the internet - which do we choose?

If you know who you want to talk to and what you want to say, you can be much more precise.”

By comparison, he visited the real Camp David, the official mountaintop presidential retreat in Maryland, three times last year. He most recently took family and friends to the secluded mountain compound in August to celebrate his 52nd birthday but has yet to visit this year. Obama is the eighth American president since the mid-1960s to enjoy the 200-acre Sunnylands property, which includes the Annenberg’s 25,000-square-foot home, a nine-hole golf course, tennis court, 11 lakes, a swimming pool and a mausoleum where the Annenbergs are interred. The property also has many walking paths, reflecting pools and multiple varieties of wildlife and arid-landscape plants.

Family not supportive after assault
excuse for attacking another person. You will not get the support you deserve from your family. Either accept what they offer or don’t. But please make sure your daughter is dealing with this in a healthy way. Contact RAINN (rainn.org) for information and help. Dear Annie: My in-laws, whom I adore, do not have soap in their bathrooms. My husband and I take soap when we go to visit, but that doesn’t change the fact that no one else washes their hands after using the restroom. They then proceed to prepare meals that we are supposed to eat. We have tried sending decorative soap dispensers and asking “Where’s the soap?” but nothing changes. — Clean Freak Dear Clean: Everyone should wash with soap and water after using the bathroom and especially before preparing food. It helps prevent the spread of germs, some of which can be quite harmful. Have you asked your inlaws why they don’t wash properly? If nothing changes, send them this letter and tell them that Annie says they need to use soap before someone gets sick, fer cryin’ out loud.
although it isn’t what we want. My parents and siblings have told me that this is the “new normal” and that my family should be grateful for the times they see us instead of focusing on the times when we aren’t included. It feels as if we are being punished because my daughter’s assault was “not that bad” and she wasn’t willing to shove it under the rug for the rest of her life. — Open for Input Dear Open: We understand that your parents and siblings don’t want to lose contact with your sister by openly supporting you. They know she would cut all of them off. Instead, this is the accommodation they have made in order to have a relationship with everyone. The real problem is that your sister and her husband refuse to address the assault, never apologized or tried to make amends, and blamed you and your daughter for bringing it up. We also don’t know whether her husband has ever dealt with his drinking, which is no

WIZARD OF ID
Dear Annie: My sister’s husband sexually assaulted my 18-year-old daughter while she slept on their sofa. We kept this a secret for three years, and then it finally came out. When my sister heard, she decided to protect her children from the truth about their father by “divorcing” my family so we would not reveal the secret. She claimed her husband was “blacked-out drunk” and therefore not responsible for the assault. Because there was no intent (presumably), he wasn’t at fault. That was four years ago. My sister’s sons are the same age as mine, and they used to spend many nights together. To add salt to our wounds, the rest of my family supports her decision. They no longer take my kids to her house or to her children’s birthday parties. They never tell us when my sister is at their home. They celebrate holidays with her family before visiting us. My kids and I are completely torn up over all of this and so deeply wounded, not only by the loss of my sister’s family, but also by the lack of support from the rest of them. I don’t understand how my parents and my other siblings could possibly support her decision. Are we wrong to feel betrayed and abandoned? We are about ready to wash our hands of the lot of them,

Dad who defers to son sends wrong message to daughter DEAR ABBY: You were wrong to advise “Starting Anew in Ohio” (Nov. 7), the mother of a 10-year-old girl who wanted the bigger bedroom in their new house, to have her kids draw straws. When the girl made the request, her older brother said he didn’t care. The time to have drawn straws was when the girl first made the request, not two months afterward. The girl is at an age when children can be particularly sensitive about trust issues, and the boy is old enough to know that words have consequences. If the parents reverse course now, the girl will learn that her parents’ promises mean nothing, and the boy will learn that he doesn’t have to worry about what he says because he can change it later. These are not good lessons to teach children. That the father would bow to the boy’s request made the situation worse. Maybe he’d think twice if he realized his daughter will now always doubt his word. -- JUDY IN OHIO DEAR JUDY: You are not the only reader who told me my answer wasn’t up to my usual standards. In fact, not a single person who wrote to comment agreed with me, and their points were valid. Their comments: DEAR ABBY: Your solution won’t keep the peace in that household; it will end it. The daughter will learn her parents can’t be trusted to keep a prom-
ise; the son will think he can take anything he wants from his sister because, as the male, he gets Abigail his way. No, Abby, a Van Buren promise is a promise. And Dear Abby if there’s any lesson more important to teach our children, I can’t imagine what it is. -- HOLLY IN PENNSYLVANIA DEAR ABBY: This is the time to teach that 12-year-old “young man” to be a man of his word. He made the decision that his sister could have the room. The daughter had the guts to ask for what she wanted. Good for her for asking for what she wants. Now they should draw straws to determine the outcome? The message this sends to the children is, “If you’re older, you can get what you want. If you make a promise, you can break it.” The daughter should not lose out on what she was promised. -- DANIELLE IN WISCONSIN DEAR ABBY: May I offer a suggestion? The children should be told that each year around the anniversary of their moving to the new house that they will change rooms. It may take some effort and energy, but the benefit would be that both brother
and sister get to experience the larger bedroom. It will teach them to compromise. -- TAMI IN COLORADO DEAR ABBY: Having been through this type of situation as a child, I can tell you it destroyed my trust in my mother. Believe me, this will have far-reaching and unintended repercussions in that little girl’s life. A promise is a promise! -- CANDACE IN THE ROCKIES DEAR ABBY: Whatever happened to respect for your elders? None of my six nieces and nephews has ever called me “Uncle Sam,” nor have any of their children called me “Mr. B.” When the 5-year-old called me “Sammy,” a name I loathe, I nearly snapped. Am I out of line? -- SAM IN SHEFFIELD, MASS. DEAR SAM: If “Uncle Sam” is what you prefer to be called, you should have made that clear to your siblings when the nieces and nephews were little. Children are imitative. If their parents call you and refer to you as just plain Sam, don’t blame the children for doing the same. I don’t know how old the kids are now, but it may be a little late for you to start complaining about this. (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 www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.)
Horoscopes ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you like your work quite a bit, increased responsibility and longer hours will bring more enjoyment to your life. Before you take on anything new, consider how much you are enjoying what you already do. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). An informal approach to a formal situation will prove a mistake and could be taken as a sign of disrespect. Whereas, a formal approach to an informal situation will be seen as an interesting stylistic choice. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Start by choosing your focus. Family, work, relationships or finance are all favored focuses, but you have to choose only one. That’s the right number to get settled into a groove and move quickly forward. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Holding too many negative thoughts in your mind is like too much water in a boat: It will sink you. Start bailing out some of
the less than buoyant ideas and replacing them with hope. Hope floats! LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Friends make bad situations bearable and good situations even better. Whether your plan is for work or play, you stand to make it better by getting friends in on the action. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’re changing, and your social needs will change right along with the transformation. No matter how many friends you already have, it’s worthwhile to seek good company. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Since you can’t discover who you are while living out someone else’s idea of who you need to be, you will spend the day doing your own thing. Listen for the little voice inside that tells you what that “thing” is. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Strangers will find you intriguing, attractive and perhaps even “cool.” You may decide to make it difficult for them to get to know
you, and this strategy will serve to make them even more eager to do so. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Consider reading about a famous person who has had similar ambitions to your own. You’ll learn much from the triumphs and errors of public personalities. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your appreciation for and care of nature is a highly attractive quality. As a lover of animals, they will gravitate to you now, and you could even find yourself taking responsibility for a stray. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Those who assume they are doing you a favor by instructing you will get a surprise. You don’t like to be told what to do unless you asked for the advice. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Money is a form of communication, and those dollars and cents will need no translation today. Everyone will be on the same page about how much things are worth.

Challenge, opportunity await Ole Miss BY DAVID BRANDT AP Sports Writer
Two straight road losses have sent Ole Miss tumbling down the Southeastern Conference standings. A chance for redemption comes this week. The Rebels (16-9, 7-5 Southeastern Conference) will host No. 18 Kentucky (19-6, 9-3) tonight and then must take on No. 2 Florida on Saturday. Ole Miss is usually very good at Tad Smith Coliseum — with a 110-22 record under eighth-year coach Andy Kennedy — but that dominance will be tested by the league’s best teams. “It’s two tremendous chal-
lenges for our group,” Kennedy said. “But also two tremendous opportunities.” The stakes are certainly high. The Rebels probably have to sweep both games to have any serious hope at earning an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament. Ole Miss fell to No. 69 in the NCAA’s RPI rankings after back-to-back road losses to Alabama and Georgia last week. The Rebels have received consistent production from a backcourt that includes Marshall Henderson and Jarvis Summers. Henderson is once again one of the league’s top scorers — averaging 19.5
points and making more than four 3-pointers per game — while Summers scores 16.8 points and dishes nearly four assists per game. But the team’s young frontcourt hasn’t been nearly as consistent. Sophomore Anthony Perez and freshman Sebastian Saiz have been the most unpredictable, with moments that range from awesome to awful. Kennedy says both have been much more assertive at home — a trend he hopes will continue against the Wildcats’ big frontcourt that includes Julius Randle, Willie Cauley-Stein and Dakari Johnson.
Cauley-Stein had arguably the best game of his career when the two teams met at Rupp Arena earlier this season. The 7-foot sophomore had 18 points, 11 rebounds and six blocks, leading Kentucky to an 80-64 victory on Feb. 4. Kentucky coach John Calipari said it was a close game until the final few minutes. Kennedy said Calipari was just being diplomatic. “We stayed around for a while,” Kennedy said. “... But we couldn’t get a rebound which is kind of a broken record for us.” Please see REBELS | 11
ICC softball sweeps home opener with 25 hits BY ADAM GORE LetsGoICC.com
FULTON — The two-time defending MACJC North Division Champion ICC softball team cranked out 25 hits to sweep Hinds Community College in its 2014 home debut on Sunday. “I was really proud of the girls being able to bounce back so quickly after going to Co-Lin on Saturday,” said Coach Andy Kirk. “Typically pitching dominates the early part of the season, but I feel like all that extra time in our indoor hitting facility really paid off with the way we were hitting the ball.” The Lady Indians (3-1, 0-0 MACJC North) won a 10-7 shootout in Game 1 highlighted by a pair of two-run home runs from sophomores Kory Watterson (Nesbit) and Emilee Henderson (Burnsville). “There were a handful of errors that helped them get some runs early in the game, but hopefully we can get some dry and warm weather to get out on the field to be able to correct those type of mistakes,” said Kirk. “Overall I was really pleased with the way the girls battled and never gave up after falling behind in the fourth.” Henderson finished the game with 4 RBI while Haley Moore (Booneville) and Cat Carver (Hernando) each had

Highlights from the Sochi Winter Olympics Soup was the special on the Olympic menu. Thick, soupy fog in the mountains rolled in to Krasnaya Polyana on Sunday night, stuck around on Monday and knocked out a bunch of events. A men’s biathlon race and a snowboard event were both postponed until Tuesday. “Mother Nature doesn’t always cooperate,” American snowboardcross rider Nate Holland said.
The police say no such thing happened. Vladimir Luxuria, a former Italian parliament lawmaker who has become a prominent transgender rights crusader and television personality, told The Associated Press she was stopped while carrying a rainbow flag that read in Russian: “Gay is OK.” She added that the issue was not the flag but the message. “They asked me not to show things like that anymore.”
PROTEST & POLITICS
LET’S SHAKE IT
An Italian gay-rights activist says she was detained for several hours by police.
Meryl Davis and Charlie White won the first Olympic title in the ice dancing for
the United States. The silver medalists from four years ago scored 116.63 points in the free dance to beat their Canadian training partners, Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir. Davis and White started skating together in 1997, and on the biggest day of their career, they were nearly flawless. “That in itself justified 17 years of hard work,” White said.
AND IT’S GOT ME MOVING Rivals compare her to a dancer because she skis with rhythm. She also wins plenty of gold. Darya Domracheva
became the first female to win three gold medals in biathlon at the same Olympics when she won the 12.5-kilometer mass start race, missing only one target. Gabriela Soukalova of Czech Republic was second and Tiril Eckhoff of Norway finished third.

All-Star MVP Irving sets sights on playoffs Associated Press
INDEPENDENCE, Ohio — Now that Kyrie Irving has added NBA All-Star MVP honors to his list of accomplishments, he and the rest of the Cleveland Cavaliers are focused on a push toward the Eastern Conference playoffs. On a stage of stars Sunday night in New Orleans, Irving captured the biggest prize. He scored 31 points and had 14 assists to help the East squad overcome an 18-point deficit for a 163-155 victory over the West. He was 14 of 17 from the field, and scored 15 points in the fourth quarter. Irving returned from his whirlwind weekend and took part in practice with the Cavaliers on Monday night before the team left for Tuesday’s game in Philadelphia.
The Cavaliers, who rolled into the break with a fourgame winning streak, are 11th in the East with a 20-33 record, three games out of the final playoff spot. While it didn’t seem realistic a couple of weeks ago, a postseason berth for Cleveland is now a possibility. “We’re taking it one game at a time,” Irving said. “It’s a goal in the back of our mind, but at this point we’re just trying to compete on a consistent basis every single night and come out with wins. We want to have a winning record in the second half of the season. Hopefully something amazing happens. Anything is possible.” The Cavaliers hit rock bottom with an embarrassing home loss to the injury-deci-
mated Los Angeles Lakers on Feb. 5. The Lakers finished the game with a player who had already fouled out but was forced to stay on the floor because they had run out of bodies. Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert fired general manager Chris Grant the following day, and Cleveland hasn’t lost since. The somber atmosphere that hung over the team has been lifted, and the Cavaliers are finally looking like the club many predicted to be a playoff contender when the season began. “Honestly, those wins don’t really mean anything right now,” Irving said of the winning streak. “We’re focused on getting this next game.” Irving joked that he was going to get 14 hours of sleep
Monday night following his long weekend. While in New Orleans, he also participated in the 3-point shooting contest. He was eliminated in the first round during a bid to defend the title he won last year. “It’s a tiring weekend,” Irving said. “I’m glad it’s over. Now we can move on and get the second half of the season started.” Irving said he gave the MVP trophy to his father, Drederick, who attended the game. “It was an extension of our organization, my teammates and my coaching staff,” Irving said. “I definitely wouldn’t be there without them and their support.” Cavaliers coach Mike Brown enjoyed watching Irving’s performance.

Calipari said the Rebels’ frontcourt is capable and athletic, but like most coaches across the league, he’s more worried about Henderson’s ability to change a game with a quick barrage of 3-pointers. “Henderson at any time can make five straight shots,” Calipari said. “Can you keep your head about you?” While Ole Miss might be the most desperate team at the Tad Pad on Tuesday night, Kentucky probably won’t be far behind. The Wildcats fell 69-59 at home to Florida on Saturday and haven’t played particularly well on the road this season.

Seven medal events are on tap, including the women’s giant slalom and the men’s 10,000 meters in speedskating.
But Calipari was upbeat about the Florida loss. There’s certainly no shame in losing to the veteran Gators, who are on a 17-game winning streak and haven’t lost in more than two months. “I’m happy with my team,” Calipari said. “That game showed me we’re as good as anybody in the country. Now we’ve got to shore up a few things.” Beating Ole Miss on the road would be a sign things are going in the right direction. “They’ll try to prove something against us,” Kentucky guard Aaron Harrison said. “But we’re trying to prove something against them as well.”
