Mack Mitchell with Mitchell Farms checks over the young triplets born on the farm earlier in the week.

Over 50 indicted in Tish Co. BY STEVE BEAVERS

Rare Delivery: Hereford has triplets on Kossuth farm BY STEVE BEAVERS

KOSSUTH — Doug Mitchell had never seen it before. Neither have a lot of cattle farmers. One of Mitchell Farms registered Hereford cows gave birth to triplets a day after Valentine’s Day. It was a feat that happens once in every 106,000 times. “It’s extremely rare,” said Mitchell. “Four years ago, we had 14 sets of twins but I have never heard of a set of triplets.” The fact that the 7-year-old mama cow had triplets is quite an

accomplishment in itself, but that she delivered the calves without any assistance is another extraordinary act. “We didn’t do anything to help with the birth,” said the cattle farmer. “I knew she was big when I checked her the night before ... I thought she might have twins.” The cow, who has birthed young ones since the age of 2, had a bull and two heifers for the three total. “Most of the time when a cow has twins, she will have the first one then walk off and have the other one,” said Mitchell. “The reason some twins don’t live is the cow

forgets about the first one. The odd thing is she has accepted all three of these calves.” The registered Hereford — naturally bred — carried the calves nine months just like humans do with their babes. The calves weighed 60, 50 and 40 pounds each. “They are smaller than a normal calf,” added Mitchell. The mother and the calves — 73Z1, 73Z2 and 73Z3 — have all been moved to a barn so the mother can be fed well and produce enough milk to nurse. “If they can make it a week, they will be fine,” said Mitchell.

An Easter season tradition of spiritual renewal and lunchtime fellowship on Wednesdays soon returns to the Crossroads area. The 32nd Anniversary Lenten Luncheons begin Ash Wednesday on Feb. 22 at First United Methodist Church for the first of seven weeks of good speakers, food and fellowship. Lunch serving begins at 11:45 a.m. with a speaker and music every Wednesday in the church fellowship hall. Cost is $5 with proceeds to support local and state mission projects. A special feature awaits those attending as the church has a newly renovated kitchen and dining area. “The kitchen is ready, the United Methodist Women (UMW) group is ready and the entire church is ready for anyone to share and participate in the Lenten Luncheon Easter season tradition,” said Brenda Childs, one of the many UMW volunteers who contribute their time for the annual event. The luncheons are planned so people who work can attend, eat, listen to the messages and get back to work within an hour, noted Childs. Assorted cakes, tea and coffee will be served with each meal. The date, speaker and menu includes: Feb. 22 — Dr. Randy Bostick of Oakland Baptist Church; chicken spaghetti and salad; Feb. 29 — Rev.

Suspects waive preliminary hearing Next grand jury scheduled during July The Associated Press

HOLLY SPRINGS — Two of three suspects in the Christmas Day shoot-

ing death of a 16-yearold Memphis, Tenn., girl have waived their preliminary hearing in Marshall County Justice Court. Cory Albright, 33, and a 16-year-old juvenile waived their hearings before Justice Court Judge Earnest Cunningham.

Cunningham would otherwise have examined evidence to determine whether the case was worthy of being presented to a grand jury. A third suspect, Rico Fleming, 22, who arrested by U.S. marshals in St. Louis, Mo., more than

two weeks after the killing, had appeared earlier in circuit court. The three are each charged with one count of murder and multiple counts of drive-by shooting. All three are being held without bond. The drive-by shooting

It’s not as glitzy as New Orleans, but it’s not as frenzied either, and the throws are generous and vary widely. But when it comes to a great place for families to celebrate Mardi Gras, residents of the Mississippi Gulf Coast feel they have a treasure. Mostly staged just for locals in the past, the coast’s celebration has become better known

over the years and now draws revelers from long distances. Taryn Sammons, spokeswoman for the coast’s tourism industry, said hotels have been filling up, making for the likelihood of a busy Fat Tuesday for restaurants, casinos and other businesses. There will be parades on the weekend. Then on Fat Tuesday, three cities will have parades. “Our parades aren’t

like the New Orleans ones,” said Betsy Glendenning, president of the Gemini krewe in Gulfport. “But we have great floats, plenty of throws, and it is definitely a parade worth seeing.” Glendenning and others describe Mardi Gras on the Gulf Coast as safe and without the fleshflashing the New Orleans French Quarter has become known for at Carnival time. “We have Boy Scouts

burglary among charges in court

marching with us, a community college bands. And our crowds are nice size, but you don’t get as jammed together as you do in New Orleans,” Glendenning said. The krewe has a weekend parade, then marches again on Mari Gras evening. Gemini will have 60 floats in its parade, including two from Pensacola, Fla. The Krewe of Lafitte will bring pirates to the gathering on its floats.

Members of the United Methodist Women (UMW) have been busy getting things in order for the 32nd Anniversary Lenten Luncheons which begin on Wednesday. Those decorating the church on Friday were (from left) Peggy Collins, Brenda Childs, Ann Chappelle, Phyllis Johnson, Vonceil Smith and Barbara Wayne.

The official 2012 Tennessee Transportation Map is now available to assist travelers in their planning efforts. This year’s map contains a Quick Response code (QR code) that will allow users to scan and link to TDOT’s mobile web application, TDOT SmartWay Mobile.

“The state map is an important tool for travelers and this new feature will provide an added convenience by allowing motorists to quickly access realtime traffic information using their smartphones,” said TDOT Commissioner John Schroer. “The map is free and is also available at welcome centers and rest areas across the state.”

The 2012 state map can also be downloaded from the TDOT web site at www. Pre-printed maps may be ordered from TDOT online at tdot/MapOrder/maporder.htm or by mailing a request to: Tennessee Department of Transportation, Map Sales Office, 505 Deaderick Street, James K. Polk Building,

Suite 300, Nashville, Tennessee 37243-034. Individuals may request up to five free maps. Organizations and schools may order up to one hundred maps for their use. The Official 2012 Tennessee Transportation Map is a joint effort between TDOT and the Tennessee Department of Tourist Development.

More public schools dish up 3 meals a day BY HEATHER HOLLINGSWORTH The Associated Press

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Too often it is after the fact that teachers discover their students are worrying less about math and reading and more about where the next meal comes from. So Doug White, principal of Garfield Elementary School in inner-city Kansas City, was relieved when his school, like many across the country, began offering dinner to students enrolled in after-school child-care or tutoring programs. With breakfast and lunch already provided for poor students, many children now are getting all their meals at school. “When you know about those situations those kids are bringing into the school and we are asking them to sit down and concentrate and do their work, and they might be hungry and we haven’t been made aware of it yet — we definitely want

to do everything we can to help the kids,” White said. The Healthy, HungerFree Kids Act, signed into law by President Barack Obama in December 2010, provides federal funds for the after-school dinner program in areas where at least half the students qualify for free or reduced price lunches. Before the change, the program was limited to 13 states and the District of Columbia. Most states had provided money for only after-school snacks. Since the change, districts have started rolling out dinner programs both in states newly able to offer them and states like Missouri where funding was available previously but districts didn’t always know about it. The Congressional Budget Office estimates there will be almost 21 million additional suppers served by 2015 and that number will rise to 29 million by 2020. The added spending would

total about $641 million from 2011 to 2020. Advocates for the poor praise the program, but there have been complaints from conservatives who question whether the schools should be feeding kids three meals a day. Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh asked on-air in November, “Why even send the kids home?” Dinners are funded through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Child and Adult Care Food Program, which also helps feed people enrolled in child and adult day care programs and emergency shelters. The number of dinners served through the program has grown over the past decade, although the USDA doesn’t currently break out how many meals are served through after-school programs specifically. “The USDA has done a lot to streamline the requirements and made it easier for people to

apply and participate,” said Crystal FitzSimons, who researches and advocates for after-school meals for the antihunger nonprofit Food Research and Action Center. “Before, we did outreach in the states that allowed it. There were programs participating. But I think it has gained a lot of momentum and a lot of visibility because it has been expanded nationwide.” In California, the Oakland Unified School District started a pilot program in October, dishing up dinner in 11 of its 101 schools. The district plans to expand the program in 19 more schools by the end of the school year. “There are some of these kids who you know just don’t eat when they go home,” said Jennifer LeBarre, nutrition services director for the district, where about 70 percent of its 38,000 students qualify for subsidized meals.

Tupelo targets properties for redevelopment The Associated Press

TUPELO — The city plans to buy three downtown properties in a $376,000 investment it hopes will result in a park or residential development. The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports the properties have been magnets for crime and other prob-

lems. One originally was the Tupelo Military Institute but city officials say it more recently has been used by homeless people and drug users. The City Council voted this past week to buy the properties, capping months of behind-thescenes negotiations with their owners.

“This is taking one of the most difficult places in town to raise a family and trying to do something good with it,” said Mayor Jack Reed Jr. Only Councilman Jim Newell voted against the plan, saying the city shouldn’t spend taxpayer dollars it doesn’t have to get into the real estate business.

However, city officials said money for the purchases will come from a recently passed bond issue for capital projects, including a new neighborhood-improvement program. The program will be funded with $600,000 annually for 5 years and targets improvements in Tupelo’s older neighborhoods.

Corinth, Miss.

Reversing Obama’s ‘soft despotism’ requires a focus BY MICHAEL BARONE Many Republican House members, and the bloggers and tea partiers who cheered their victory in gaining a majority in November 2010, seem to be seething with discontent and eager for confrontation. They believe, reasonably, that that victory represented a repudiation of the vast expansion of government by the Obama Democrats. They want to see those policies reversed, and pronto. And if the dilatory Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and the allcampaign-no-governance President Obama want a confrontation, so much the better. Such impatience is unbecoming in those who call themselves “constitutional conservatives.” It is James Madison’s Constitution that prevents the winners of one election from directing the course of public policy as unilaterally as, to take one example, the British Labor Party marched Britain into a socialist welfare state on the basis of one election victory in 1945. We have a House of Representatives 100 percent of whose members were elected in a historic Republican year, a president elected in a historic Democratic year, and a Senate two-thirds of whose members were elected in historic Democratic years and one-third in a historic Republican year. It should not be surprising that they cannot agree on policy. Most of the high-minded folk who decry “gridlock” would like the Republican House to say uncle. The Republicans bemoaning their leaders’ lack of boldness imagine that if they force confrontation they can somehow prevail. Neither can succeed in the framework the Framers gave us -- not until another election. The Republicans who seek changes in policy need to exercise prudence in framing issues in order to gain a favorable verdict from voters in the election coming up this fall. Speaker John Boehner -- who started off as a rebel himself and served as a leader when Newt Gingrich sometimes adroitly, sometimes maladroitly, moved policy in a Republican direction -- is as well positioned as anyone could be to make judgments on when prudence should override principle. But say this for the impatient Republicans: They have a worthy goal. They want to turn back the Obama Democrats’ advance into what Alexis de Tocqueville, the author (according to Harvard’s Harvey Mansfield) of “the best book ever written on democracy and the best book ever written on America,” characterized as soft despotism. Tocqueville, after describing in “Democracy in America” how Americans avoided the perils of equality by forming voluntary associations, engaging in local government and believing in religions that disciplined their pursuit of self-interest into a pursuit of virtue, painted the picture of a darker future. Above a democratic populace, he writes, “an immense tutelary power is elevated, which alone takes charge of assuring their enjoyments and watching over their fate. It is absolute, detailed, rigid, far-seeing and mild. It would resemble paternal power if, like that, it had for its object to prepare men for manhood; but on the contrary, it seeks only to keep them fixed irrevocably in childhood; it likes citizens to enjoy themselves. It willingly works for their happiness; but it wants to be the unique agent and sole arbiter of that.” Thus Tocqueville, writing in the 1830s, foresees Obamacare and the crony capitalism that produces a Super Bowl commercial from a government- and union-controlled company that seeks Obama’s re-election. It is worth quoting more from a political thinker as far elevated above almost any other as Mozart was above almost all other composers. “Thus, taking each individual by turns in its powerful hands and kneading him as it likes, the sovereign extends its arms over society as a whole; it covers its surface with a network of small, complicated, painstaking, uniform rules through which the most original minds and the most vigorous souls cannot clear a way to surpass the crowd; it does not break wills, but it softens them, bends them and directs them; it rarely forces one to act, but it constantly opposes itself to one’s acting; it does not destroy, it prevents things from being born; it does not tyrannize, it hinders, compromises, enervates, extinguishes, dazes and finally reduces each nation to being nothing more than a herd of timid and industrial animals of which the government is the shepherd.” That is what House Republicans are fighting to reverse. With their presidential candidates at odds, with mainstream media disparaging them at every turn, they need to exercise prudence and not give in to passion that could defeat their purpose.

Book sheds light on modern politics’ dark side STARKVILLE — When I was a little boy, my father took me for a haircut every other Saturday from a small town barber who had a love for children and an irascible wit. The barber loved gags, tricks and novelties that would make a kid laugh. Joy buzzers? Yes. “Whoopee” cushions? Always. And for the very young, there was always the “pull the quarter from behind the ear” bit. I always loved that, because I got to keep the quarter and a quarter would buy a lot in 1964. For those in journalism whose lot it falls to cover politics at any significant level, there come moments of searing clarity, brutal insight and stunning disappointment that can only be compared to learning the secret of a magician’s sleight-of-hand. Much of modern politics reminds me of my childhood barber, who taught me the value of paying attention to small details so as not to buy into the notion that my left ear really dispensed quarters. In their intriguing and entertaining new book

“We’re With Nobody: Two Insiders Reveal the Dark Side of American Politics” (William M o r r o w , Sid Salter 191 pages, Columnist $15.99), former Mississippi journalists and current political research firm partners Alan Huffman and Michael Rejebian reveal the predictably sordid but reliably comic processes and strategies used to determine which candidates win elections in this country. The pair will be signing their new book at Lemuria Books in Jackson on Feb. 21. Huffman is a former environmental researcher and aide to both former Mississippi Attorney General Mike Moore and former Mississippi governor and current Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus. Rejebian is a former communications director and advisor for both the Jackson mayor’s office and to the state attorney general’s office. Both were talented new reporters for The Clarion-Ledger be-

fore leaving the newspaper business. The authors focus on their trade -- political opposition research or “oppo” -- which is best defined as seeking, finding, documenting, vetting, and ultimately packaging political dirt on opposing candidates or potential candidates for use by the politicians they challenge. But what is key to understanding the world that Huffman and Rejebian work in and that we as voters exercise our franchise in is that this “oppo” isn’t the creation of fertile minds in ad agencies. This research is factual information contained in public records or available to be verified by doing what both journalists and detectives do best -- identifying and interviewing sources, digging through records, and taking the occasional risks inherent in obtaining such information. The “truth” obtained in the quest for political opposition research can run the gamut from prior arrests to medical secrets to pre- or post-marital indiscretions. And, it is also refreshing to

learn, Huffman and Rejebian have also been forced to confront another kind of truth -- the fact that there are still some honorable politicians out there with absolutely no skeletons in their closets. “We’re With Nobody” has the frenetic pace and energy of a John Grisham novel and is a truly compelling read, but it’s a cautionary tale as well. Business Week’s Bret Berk offered this review: “Whatever the case, a clean memoir of a filthy business is a welcome perspective shift: It illuminates without slaking our blood thirst. The argument that their research into the sex lives or undisclosed dealings of politicians -- and the unscrupulous Swiftboating that can result from it -- is beneficial to democracy is debatable. The authors contribute something more valuable by exposing the mechanics behind their profession. Voters who read this compelling book may be less likely to vote under the influence of the kind of dirt Huffman and Rejebian spent their careers digging up.”

Kulturkampf comes disguised as public health About a month ago, people who thought religious institutions shouldn’t be forced to pay for things they morally oppose were unremarkable, boring even. Now, they are waging a heinous War on Women. Through the twisted logic of statism run amok, opposition to a new Health and Human Services mandate forcing employers to buy insurance covering contraceptives becomes opposition to access to contraceptives altogether. White House spokesman Jay Carney calls a Senate bill to allow employers to forgo buying coverage for services they oppose -- as they have throughout the nation’s entire history up to this point -- “dangerous and wrong.” Three Democratic women senators, Jeanne Shaheen (New Hampshire), Barbara Boxer (California) and Patty Murray (Washington), wrote in The Wall Street Journal that critics of the mandate “are trying to force their politics on women’s personal healthcare decisions.” How are they proposing to do that exactly? The Catholic bishops are merely fighting to keep institutions affiliated with their church from getting coerced into participating in what they consider a

moral wrong. They are the agents of a status quo that the day before yesterday wasn’t Rich considered Lowery objectionable, let alone National an assault Review on women’s health. Supporters of the mandate like the three senators cite the statistic from the Guttmacher Institute that 99 percent of women who have been sexually active in the U.S. have used birth control. This doesn’t sound like a country facing a crisis of contraception. But prescription contraceptives are expensive, the senators argue, costing as much as $600 a year. (Or, looked at another way, less than $60 a month.) Never mind that a vast government apparatus exists to provide poor women access to contraceptives, from Medicaid and community health centers to Title X. There are roughly 4,500 Title X-funded clinics around the country. They are required to provide free birth control to the poor and subsidized birth control to people with incomes between 100 percent and 250

percent of poverty. They serve about 5 million people a year. By any reasonable standard, we are one of the most lavishly contracepted society in the history of the planet. Whoever wrote the Kahun Gynecological Papyrus circa 1800 B.C., with its references to crude contraceptives, would be shocked and awed at the bright, cheery display of condoms at the average drugstore. At, a pedestrian pack of 12 goes for about $10, with no stigma attached. A Centers for Disease Control report this year found that among teen mothers who had unintended pregnancies, only 13 percent said they had trouble getting access to birth control. Robert Rector of The Heritage Foundation, an expert on out-of-wedlock births, says the category of unplanned pregnancies is more ambiguous than it sounds. It includes women who weren’t planning a pregnancy right away but were still thinking about getting pregnant so weren’t zealous in their use of contraception. Of all the causes of the explosion in illegitimate births, limited access to contraception can’t be high

on the list. At the same time that we have seen a profusion of contraceptives that are dazzling in their variety, impressive in their efficacy and democratic in their widespread accessibility, out-of-wedlock births have gone from 10 percent in 1970 to 42 percent today (largely among poor women with access to governmentprovided contraceptives). In its extension to religious institutions, the HHS mandate can only reach a very narrow slice of the population. Women who aren’t poor enough to get government assistance, yet aren’t well off enough to afford their own contraception, can’t get any other help, and have no alternative but to work for an objecting religious institution. On behalf of this vanishingly small number of women, the Obama administration is willing to risk a political backlash and a rebuke in the courts. If the mandate were only about extending contraception coverage, exempting religious institutions would be obvious. But it’s more than that. It is about bringing institutions thought to be retrograde to heel, and discrediting their morality. It is kulturkampf disguised as public health.

Local Milk and cheeses cater to a faithful flock BY TIM DOHERTY Hattiesburg American

POPLARVILLE — It started as a way to, hopefully, make ends meet and keep a rural Pearl River County enterprise in operation by tweaking the business model. In less than two years, its products can be found in the coolers of farmers’ markets and the dairy sections of stores stretching from the Gulf Coast into the Pine Belt. And while Country Girl’s Creamery may not quite be a household brand name yet, its milk

and cheeses cater to a faithful flock. “The milk, it’s a wonderful seller, and we cannot keep it on the shelves,” said Angie Gipson, who works at Lil’ Butcher Shoppe in Hattiesburg. “We have a lot of converts, and we have people upset when we’re out. It’s the best thing we’ve had (to retail) in a long time.” And it’s worked out well for the Smith family, who crossed their fingers and took a chance that there might be a market for their non-homogenized

offerings. “We didn’t really know,” said Butch Smith, who along with younger brother, Michael, and their father, Kiahnell, began processing their own milk in March 2010 at the 100-acre dairy farm off Mississippi Highway 26 between Poplarville and Wiggins. “We don’t really solicit our product. We deliver to about (40) places, and most of them have contacted us.” “There’s three reasons people drink it,” Michael Smith said. “We’ve got

the customers who drink it because that’s what they grew up on. We’ve got the customers, the health people, who drink it because it’s natural, no antibiotics, no hormones or anything. “Then, you’ve got everybody else who drinks it because it’s good. So, I mean, what other customer base are you looking for?” Dairy farming and the Smiths have a history. In fact, the name of the creamery pays homage not only to Butch Smith’s

three daughters, but also to one of the former customers of the family business. “My great-grandfather was a dairy farmer also,” Butch Smith said. “He had a milk route in addition to being a dairy farmer, and he delivered to a plant in Picayune called ‘Country Girl.’ So, we kind of put it all together and that’s how we came up with (the name).” Both brothers grew up around the farm run by their father, who left the business in 1990 when

prices dropped and expenses rose. “Dad’d been milking since the 1970s, and I always loved it,” Michael Smith said. “He got out but then, in 2000, he said he wanted to get back into (it) ... so for two years, I milked in the morning and evening, while he worked.” Butch Smith, who has spent 17 years at Forrest General Hospital as a nurse, said he used to pitch in around the farm, but got more immersed as his daughters grew older.

Lincoln’s Cottage in DC tackles modern slavery BY BRETT ZONGKER The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The house where President Abraham Lincoln drafted the Emancipation Proclamation some 150 years ago is confronting the reality that more people are held in modern-day slavery than at the height of the trans-Atlantic slave trade. A 2005 United Nations report based on reported cases of forced labor found at least 12 million people worldwide, including people in the U.S., are held in modern slavery and sex trafficking. The U.S. State Department has put the number even higher in its 2011 Trafficking in Persons report, saying as many as 27 million men, women and children are living in such bondage. In an exhibit titled ‘Can You Walk Away?” opening Friday, President Lincoln’s Cottage in the nation’s capital tells the stories of women working as domestic servants without pay, of women forced to work as prostitutes and of men held in servitude through debt contracts and other coercion. It will remain on view in a small gallery at the site through August 2013. Curators partnered with the nonprofit Polaris

Project, which operates a national human trafficking tip line to mobilize efforts with the FBI and other law enforcement agencies to stop such crimes, to create the exhibit. The centerpiece is a series of filmed interviews with people who escaped modern slavery and with FBI agents who told their stories to mtvU’s “Against Our Will” campaign and for the documentary “Not My Life.” Lincoln’s Cottage developed the project to mark the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation and to further examine the presentday issue of slavery, said museum director Erin Carlson Mast. Many visitors come to the site to learn about Lincoln’s ideas on slavery. “Plenty of Americans see slavery as an issue that was resolved during the Civil War or by the 13th Amendment in the war’s aftermath, not as a growing humanitarian crisis in our own country,” she said. “But fundamentally, the same issue is at stake: People’s right to freedom.” One victim named Debra who is portrayed in the exhibit had signed a contract with a family in Falls Church, Va., to work as a domestic servant and to care for chil-

dren in the home. But she wasn’t being paid. She was rarely allowed to leave but was able to talk to an FBI agent on Sundays while walking a child to church. A handful of similar cases have arisen in Washington’s suburbs in Maryland and Virginia in recent years with some servants being threatened with deportation if they try to leave. Another woman in the exhibit named Angie tells how she ran away from home as a teenager in Wichita, Kan., and was picked up by a pimp with other girls and was forced into prostitution. “I just wanted to die,” she said. The Associated Press generally does not identify victims of sexual abuse. The exhibit presents only their first names to protect their identities, and a disclaimer at the entrance warns visitors of its adult content. Lincoln’s thoughts on slavery also are interwoven throughout the exhibit. “Slavery is founded in the selfishness of man’s nature — opposition to it, in his love of justice,” he said in an 1854 speech in Peoria, Ill. In his 1862 State of the Union address he said, “In giving freedom to the slave, we assure freedom to the free.”

California shooting latest woe for immigration agency BY ALICIA A. CALDWELL Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The deadly office shooting in California involving a federal immigrations supervisor and a special agent is the latest mark against U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the law enforcement agency created after the 2001 terror attacks. Its officers and agents have themselves been arrested for crimes, accused of improper relationships with informants, convicted in embezzlement cases, and more. Insiders said ICE,

which operates under the Department of Homeland Security, struggles to overcome internal friction and competing cultures among employees who worked at the different federal agencies that were combined nine years ago to form ICE: the former Customs Service in the Treasury Department and the Justice Department’s Immigration and Naturalization Service. “It was more like a hostile takeover and Customs clearly had the upper hand,” said T.J. Bonner, a retired Border Patrol agent who has worked

with ICE. He described the agency’s formation as “an unfriendly merger.” Investigators were piecing together details of Thursday’s chaotic scene at the ICE office in Long Beach. They said a supervisory agent, Ezequiel Garcia, shot Kevin Kozak, the agency’s second in command, at least six times. Another agent, whose name was being withheld, fatally shot Garcia. A federal official with knowledge of the investigation told The Associated Press that Kozak had denied a request for an in-

ternal transfer by Garcia. Kozak formerly worked at the Customs Service; Garcia worked for the nowdefunct Immigration and Naturalization Service and was promoted in 2004 to be a supervisor within ICE. Beyond organizational squabbles among its employees, ICE has suffered public embarrassments: —Frank Johnston, a former assistant special agent in charge in the Los Angeles area, was convicted in December of obstruction of justice and making false statements for lying about an

informant helping with an organized crime and human smuggling investigation. Johnston and his wife, Taryn, are also facing charges that they schemed to have her paid for a job with ICE that she didn’t actually work. Prosecutors have accused the couple of illegally obtaining $582,000 in salary and benefits over several years. Both have denied wrongdoing. —A former ICE intelligence analyst in El Paso, Texas, was sentenced last month to one year in prison in an alleged embezzlement scheme. A sec-

ond former analyst and a former agency contractor have pleaded guilty to related charges. The thenICE deputy director of intelligence in Washington, James M. Woosley, was suspended last year as part of the investigation. —Federal agents searched the Los Angeles office of assistant special agent in charge George Guzman in 2009 to help determine whether he lied on his resume about his education. Guzman did not immediately respond to a request for comment sent to his DHS email address Friday.

Authorities: Terror suspect planned suicide bombing at the Capitol BY ERIC TUCKER Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The Moroccan man accused of plotting to carry out what he thought would be a suicide bombing at the U.S. Capitol told acquaintances that America’s war on terrorism was a war on Muslims and that they needed to be ready for battle, according to authorities. Then the 29-year-old unemployed man started preparations of his own and believed he was working with an al-Qaida oper-

ative on the plot, according to court documents and an affidavit. A man brought him an automatic weapon. He got a suicide vest, scouted out targets and practiced setting off explosives, the documents say. On Friday, Amine El Khalifi’s goal to detonate the vest at the Capitol ended with his arrest in an FBI sting, said U.S. authorities who had been monitoring him for nearly a year. Undercover operatives — not an al-

Qaida representative as he believed — gave him a gun and explosives that didn’t work, according to an affidavit. He had those items with him when he was taken into custody at a parking garage near the Capitol, a counterterrorism official said. He was charged in a criminal complaint with knowingly and unlawfully attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction against property that is owned and used by the United States. He made a

Grisham Insurance

brief appearance Friday afternoon in federal court in Alexandria, Va., where a judge set a bail hearing for Wednesday. El Khalifi, who is not believed to be associated with al-Qaida, expressed interest in killing at least 30 people, officials said. Two people briefed on the matter told The Associated Press the FBI has had him under surveillance around the clock for several weeks. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly.

He came to the U.S. when he was 16 years old and overstayed his visitor visa, which expired in 1999, making him in the country illegally, according to court documents. Before settling on a suicide bombing plot, he considered targeting an office building in Alexandria, where military officials worked and a restaurant in Washington to target military officials who gathered there. He even purchased nails for the operation, according to the affidavit.

But he settled on the Capitol after canvassing that area a couple of times, the counterterrorism official said. He met with an undercover law enforcement officer, who gave him an automatic weapon that didn’t work. El Khalifi carried the firearm around the room, practiced pulling the trigger and looking at himself in the mirror. He later asked his associates for more explosives that could be detonated by dialing a cellphone number.

Most often I recomuse in deciding how much mend that people fertilize to use is to measure the their pecan trees in Febtrunk of the tree about ruary.

When fertilizing your pecan trees, the recommended method is to bore or punch holes in the soil area beneath and slightly beyond the spread of the branches of the tree in question. You need to move out from the base of the tree about eight to 10 feet before you start boring holes. Keep in mind that the root spread of the tree is usually one to two times that of the branches. Use a soil auger or spade shovel to dig a series of well-distributed holes in which to place the fertilizer. Dig the holes to a depth of anywhere from eight to 12 inches. Then you need to fill the holes with the fertilizer to within three to four inches of the surface. Then refill the holes with the soil that is left over. If you apply the fertilizer during the dry times of the year, it might be a good idea to water the area around the tree thoroughly. You can also spread the fertilizer under the tree on top of the ground instead of digging the holes. Both will

benefit the tree although if you spread it on top of the ground you will also encourage grass growth underneath the tree. Something else that needs to be done at this time is to cleanup underneath the pecan trees. You need to remove any and all the old twigs and branches as well as old pecans and shells from underneath the tree. Move all of this to another area away from the tree. This will help reduce the incidence of diseases such as pecan scab which is the most predominant fungal disease of pecan trees in this area. Also, if there are any damaged limbs or limbs that look like they are rotting, it is a good idea to remove them from not only a safety standpoint but also for the health of the tree. (For more information about fertilizing your pecan trees or other fertilizer questions, call county director Patrick Poindexter at the Alcorn County Extension Office at 2867755 or visit the website at

BIGGERSVILLE — Two nights of late-game drama was enough for the Biggersville Lions. Biggersville hung 32 points on Coldwater in the final quarter and rolled to its first North State Tournament title since 1996 with a 79-61 win on Saturday. The Lions needed lastsecond heroics by Darrien Williams on Thursday and Daniel Simmons on Friday to get into Saturday’s championship round. Biggersville (27-7) will face off with South runner-up Durant at 2:30 p.m. Saturday in

the Mississippi Coliseum. The Tigers (24-6) edged the Lions 70-68 at the Premier Printing Shootout at North Pontotoc on Jan. 14. Dexter and Coldwater comprise the four-team bracket. The 1A championship will be played on Friday, March 2 at 2:30. Coldwater (26-6) led by as many as 10 in the first half and took a 33-31 lead into the break. Biggersville knotted things at 47 in the third before the Cougars reclaimed a 49-47 lead after three. Dexter Stafford took over for the Lions in the fourth. The senior accounted for half his club’s points in the final

eight minutes, scoring 16 of his game-high 24 points in crunch time. While Stafford was getting it done in the paint, the Lion defense was doing work on the other end. Biggersville held Coldwater scoreless in the fourth quarter until the midway point. Tevin Watson and Williams added 12 points each. Watson hit back-to-back three-pointers during an 8-0 run at the start of the third quarter. Jaylon Gaines tallied 11 and Simmons chipped in 10 as five Lions scored in double figures. Biggersville followed up its

1996 North State title with its first and only state championship.

Richardson helped stake Corinth to a 14-2 lead with a trio of extra-point buckets. Weeks added six in the second as the Warriors took a 36-28 lead at recess. Elzy used a half-court trap to force four turnovers early in the third. That helped spur the Panthers on an 11-2 advantage and their first lead at 39-38. Corinth trailed the rest of the quarter — by as many as six twice — but pulled to within 54-52 after three.

Auburn upsets Mississippi State Associated Press

AUBURN, Ala. — The Auburn players gathered on the court and vowed not to let this game slip away. Frankie Sullivan scored 16 points and Kenny Gabriel added 15 points and nine rebounds to help Auburn hold off a Mississippi State comeback attempt in a 65-55 victory on Saturday night Gabriel also hit a basket and free throw with 3:13 to play and most of the Tigers’ double-digit lead gone. The five players on the court convened a second huddle during the subsequent timeout. “We just said that we weren’t going to lose this game because we had lost too many games in the last three minutes,” Gabriel said. “I made the free throw, and we were real confident with the stops and fouls, and we did it.” The Tigers (14-12, 4-8 Southeastern Conference) snapped a three-game losing streak. The Bulldogs (19-8, 6-6) have lost three in a row, including a pair of two-point overtime defeats, and cut an 11-point halftime deficit down to three before getting turned back by Auburn.

Ole Miss on wrong end of Wildcats’ win streak Associated Press

LEXINGTON, Ky. — When Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy was getting his team ready to hit the road against No. 1 Kentucky, he figured he had enough to talk about before mentioning the Wildcats’ home win streak. Well, the Wildcats’ streak reached 50, after No. 1 Kentucky beat the Rebels 77-62 on Saturday. “We talked about a lot of things, and that wasn’t one of them,” Kennedy said. “I didn’t want to bring that to our guys’ attention. For us, it was really about competing. They have done such a tremendous job.” Terrence Jones had 15 points and 11 rebounds to lead No. 1 Kentucky to a 77-62 victory over Mississippi on Saturday, the Wildcats’ 50th consecutive win at home. The Wildcats (26-1, 11-0

Southeastern Conference) are 49-0 at home under head coach John Calipari as part of the nation’s longest active home winning streak. Instead of stopping Ole Miss (15-11, 5-7), Anthony Davis picked up two fouls early and was forced to

the bench for much of the first half. Without Davis looming, who leads the country with 4.9 blocks per game, forwards Terrance Henry and Murphy Holloway took it to the rim while Kentucky forced up 3-pointers on the other end.

Consider special diets at wedding reception BY SUSAN COLLINS-SMITH MSU Ag Communications

MISSISSIPPI STATE — A wedding reception revolves around food, whether it is a formal, sit-down dinner for 150 guests or a come-and-go affair for 75 guests. With the prevalence of food allergies and other medical conditions, couples might want to consider serving a few foods that guests with special diets can enjoy safely. “While it’s difficult to consider every individual diet, it’s always good to think about your guests,” said Brent Fountain, Mississippi State University’s Extension Service human nutrition specialist. “Sugar-free foods are a good option to consider, especially if you are going to serve a lot of sweet foods. Gluten-free items are a little more difficult to have on the menu because most flour-based items, like cake and quiche, are going to include gluten.” It is especially important to include tailored options at events associated with the wedding if a member of the wedding party has special dietary needs. “If organizers know that a key member of the wedding party has Celiac disease, for instance, it would be very good for them to include gluten-free items that they can eat,” Fountain said. “Someone like a bridesmaid, groomsman, grandparent or the bride or groom themselves, is going to be involved in several activities that revolve around the wedding, such as the rehearsal dinner, showers, and

bridal luncheons.” Common food allergies, including those to fish, shellfish, wheat, soy, eggs, dairy, tree nuts and peanuts, can cause severe problems for reception guests. “Nuts are of great concern because of the severity of the reaction for some people,” Fountain said. “There is such a wide divide in the degree of the reaction for each individual. For some people it takes only a small amount to cause a serious, lifethreatening reaction.” The best advice, Fountain said, is for couples to make their caterer aware of any special dietary needs and to clearly mark foods so people know if they include a known allergen. “We always try to identify our dishes,” said Dianne Morgan of Dianne Morgan Catering in Hattiesburg. “We really have to be concerned about seafood and nuts.” Morgan said she takes precautions to avoid common allergens. “I read labels on everything,” Morgan said. “Nothing I use is already prepared. I do not use anything that includes MSG, and I am careful with nuts and seafood. Someone with a really severe nut allergy could have a reaction if I were to use a product that did not contain nuts but was processed in a plant that also processes nuts.” Taking such precautions usually doesn’t increase the cost, Fountain said, but couples should make their caterer aware of any special diet needs at the first consultation.

Students engage in social debate BY JIMMY REED At the beginning of each semester, I instruct college freshmen to write a composition titled “My Game Plan.” I use it to diagnose writing strengths and weaknesses and to learn about students’ plans for the future. When I explained the assignment to a class recently, a young man raised his hand. “I want to be a Wall Street Occupier — I’m for the 99 percent, and hate the greedy, wealthy 1 percent. Is that an acceptable topic?” With long, stringy, unwashed hair, scraggly beard, sallow complexion, and tattered clothing, he certainly looked the part. “If you want to be an ‘Occupier,’ why are you attending college?” I asked. “Education’s purpose is to provide a foundation for a successful, productive life. That is anathema to the Wall Street rabble, who

cling to the immoral notion that those who have gained wealth through hard work should be responsible for their wants and needs.” “It is not immoral — it is social justice!” he responded, citing Marxian madness. To my surprise, other students began raising their hands. Some agreed with the would-be occupier while others disagreed. I’ve always felt the number-one asset students gain in college is the ability to communicate confidently, efficiently and effectively, so I assumed the role of mediator and let this societal microcosm engage in mock class warfare. “I call the brave efforts of the Wall Street warriors a battle for the betterment of humanity,” a girl said. “While this country’s rich just keep getting richer because of the crookedness of

capitalism, the poor fall deeper into poverty. The homeless population is exploding and millions of children in this country have little, if anything, to eat. In effect, there is a caste system in this socalled democracy.” Rebutting her comment, another student said, “You’re just arguing in favor of cradle-tograve welfare. That is socialism and no socialistic society has ever survived for long. If you don’t agree, just take a look at Europe. Socialism has brought it to the brink of collapse.” A student who had returned to college after a tour in the military and whose attitude reflected more maturity than that of the other students remarked, “Peaceful assembly is a right, and if conducted in a civil manner, it stands a chance of bringing about worthy reforms, but get real -the Wall Street Occupiers

are acting like animals. They relieve themselves in the streets and even perform sex acts publicly. Daily, they show up unbathed and the stench is repulsive. There is no notion of hygiene. How can that kind of conduct lead to sound solutions?” Class time was winding down, so I ended the debate, but the youngster who wanted to be a Wall Street Occupier insisted on asking me a question: “How do you justify your stance on this issue?” The answer came easily. I quoted one of Mama’s favorite Bible verses (II Thessalonians 3:10), which was always her response to my complaints about chores: “If any would not work, neither should he eat.” (Oxford resident Jimmy Reed,, is a newspaper columnist, author and college teacher.)

Telltale burns prove smoker hasn’t quit DEAR ABBY: “Dwayne,” my boyfriend of eight years, insists on smoking in his bedroom. In our last apartment he’d fall asleep with a lit cigarette and ended up burning holes in our couch, numerous blankets and pillows as well as the carpet. When we moved, Dwayne assured me he had stopped, but a month ago I noticed his blanket and mattress have burn holes and so does the carpet by his bed. We live together with our 6-year-old son and, needless to say, I’m scared to death Dwayne will burn this place down. I have talked to him about it numerous times. All he does is yell and say it won’t happen because cigarettes are “safer now.” I have discussed this with our landlord to no avail. I thought about calling social services, but I don’t want to get him in trouble. I could really use some good advice. -- SCARED FOR

MY LIFE IN MILWAUKEE DEAR SCARED: Because Dwayne Abigail is unwillVan Buren ing to be more reDear Abby sponsible, it’s time to consider your son’s safety and your own. Your boyfriend is not only addicted to tobacco, he is also misguided. If cigarettes were “safer now” there wouldn’t be burn holes in his bedding and the area surrounding where he sleeps. If moving isn’t feasible, at least make sure there are working smoke detectors in your apartment and an extra one outside Dwayne’s bedroom door. Frankly, it would be healthier for you and the boy if Dwayne didn’t smoke at all in your apartment because the Environmental Protection Agency has classified secondhand smoke as a Group A carcinogen. To

verify this, and get further information, contact the American Cancer Society (800-227-2345) or the American Heart Association (800-2428721). DEAR ABBY: My husband died 13 years ago. Since then I have pretty much lost everything, except the grief. Recently it occurred to me that I have some photographs his siblings and nieces might like copies of. I don’t want them to know where I live because I’m ashamed. They are all well-to-do and never seemed to like me. No one has spoken to me since my husband’s death. I don’t want it to seem like I’m expecting anything in return because I’m not, nor do I want to see them socially. I’d just like to do something nice since we all loved him. From experience I think they’ll find some way to misinterpret or misunderstand the gesture. I’ll be hurt and, added to the depression and grief, I

don’t think I could handle it. What do you advise? — MISSING MY MAN IN CALIFORNIA DEAR MISSING YOUR MAN: Please accept my sympathy for the loss of your husband. You have given me four valid reasons not to reach out to your husband’s family, the most important of which is that if you get another round of rejection from them it will crush you. That’s why I advise against it. Because they haven’t spoken to you or included you in 13 years, on top of the fact you never felt accepted in the first place (your words) -- the healthy thing for you to do is to keep your distance. However, because in all this time you have been unable to finish your grieving process, I urge you to consider grief counseling. DEAR ABBY: We recently celebrated the milestone birthday of a dear friend with a party. In honor of the occasion we presented her with a

very nice bracelet with various fabricated gemstones set in a nice silver setting. As she was identifying the names of the stones, I blurted out that they “weren’t real” because I didn’t want her thinking we were trying to pass them off as the real thing. Now I’m afraid I might have cheapened our gift — although believe me, her bracelet was not cheap. I feel like an idiot. Should I try to fix this? -- FOOT IN MOUTH IN THE SOUTHWEST DEAR FOOT IN MOUTH: I think enough has already been said. Whether the stones in the bracelet were natural or man-made, the thought behind the gift was genuine.

Setting up wireless Internet at home can be easy BY MARIAH SMITH MSU Computer Applications and Services

Setting up wireless Internet access for your home or home office may sound daunting, but with careful attention to detail and a little patience, it can be done in an afternoon. First, decide whether wireless Internet access is right for your home. There are several benefits to wireless access. For example, it can allow you to use the Internet from anywhere in the house without being tied to a cable. It also allows you to connect mul-

tiple devices to the network. However, wireless has some disadvantages as well. Some of these include setup and children’s access to the Internet without adult supervision. To set up wireless access, you will first need a high-speed or broadband Internet connection. High-speed Internet access is probably available through your local telephone company, cable company or satellite provider. If high-speed Internet access is not available in your area, contact your e-beat representative (

Once you have your wireless router, plug the highspeed Internet, or Ethernet, cable coming from the modem into the first port on the back of the wireless router. This first port is labeled “Internet” or “data” on most routers. Leave the remaining ports empty. At this point, it is important to follow the instructions that came with the router.

instructions for setup, be sure to configure the wireless router. When configuring the wireless router, give the wireless network a unique name that others in your household can remember. Next you will need to enable the WPA. By protecting your wireless router with an encryption key, you ensure that other people will not be able to access your wireless network. Wireless networks are flexible, but they must be used carefully. Be sure to decide how wireless will be used in your home before introducing it.

5 favorite Reese Witherspoon performances BY CHRISTY LEMIRE Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — “This Means War” may not be Reese Witherspoon’s finest hour — it’s a glossy, noisy, love-triangle-slashspy-romp — but it’s fun and it allows her once again to demonstrate her radiant likability. It also allows us the opportunity to look back at her career and ponder five of her best performances: ■ “Election” (1999): No matter what she does, no matter how many major roles she takes on or Oscars she wins over her career, Witherspoon will always be Tracy Flick to me. And I say that with great affection. The balance she finds here is so delicate and difficult. She’s playing an essentially unlik-

able character: a prim, scheming know-it-all who will do whatever it takes to be voted president of her high school’s student government. Adorable and annoying at once, she always seems to be trying too hard to please. But Witherspoon finds the loneliness and vulnerability in Tracy, and makes us ultimately sympathize with her. ■ “Walk the Line” (2005): In theory this is Joaquin Phoenix’s movie, because he’s the one playing Johnny Cash. Then along comes Witherspoon as Cash’s lifelong love, June Carter, and she pretty much steals the movie right out from underneath him. This isn’t a knock on Phoenix, who’s extraordinary in captur-

ing the energy and essence of a towering American cultural figure. Witherspoon, though, just takes over the entire screen, and when she’s gone, you want her to come back. This was the first truly grown-up, womanly role she’d played at this point, and she got to be not just an engaging on-stage performer (she also sang and played the harpsichord) but also a wife, mother, caretaker and no-nonsense family backbone. Oh, and the performance earned her the Academy Award for best actress. ■ “Legally Blonde” (2001): As a perky blonde sorority girl myself, I initially mistook this for a documentary. That’s how convincing Witherspoon is as the ebullient

Elle Woods, a pampered campus princess who finds her true voice in the unlikeliest of places: Harvard Law School. She is just irresistible here in the classic ditzy-blonde mode, a perfectly coifed, pink-clad force of nature, and her charm and conviction make the fish-outof-water antics work. As the saying goes, you have to be pretty smart to play dumb. In that regard, Witherspoon proved she must be brilliant. (Everyone involved should have quit while they were ahead, though, and said no to “Legally Blonde 2: Red White & Blonde.”) ■ “Freeway” (1996): Witherspoon did some of her most challenging work in her youth, and this darkly funny,

twisted take on the “Little Red Riding Hood” fairy tale is a prime example. She stars as Vanessa, a trashy teenager who ends up hitching a ride with a youth counselor named Bob (Kiefer Sutherland) in hopes of finding her grandmother. She opens up to him but eventually realizes he’s a serial killer. High-spirited and foulmouthed, she ultimately turns the tables on him, and the sight of Witherspoon pistol-whipping and berating Sutherland in her girlish Southern twang is a hoot. ■ “Pleasantville” (1998): In a large and esteemed ensemble cast that features Tobey Maguire, William H. Macy and Joan Allen, Witherspoon just shines. She

uses her comic timing to great effect here as a sassy and subversive teenager who gets unwittingly sucked into the television set with her twin brother (Maguire) and finds herself in the idyllic, fictional 1950s town of Pleasantville. Gary Ross’ high-concept directorial debut finds its characters transforming and literally becoming more colorful, more complicated, and a lot of that has to do with Witherspoon’s character’s inability to keep her mouth shut. Everyone’s better for it — especially the audience. Think of any other examples? Share them with AP Movie Critic Christy Lemire through Twitter:

Mardi Gras means fat business for Gulf Coast states BY MELISSA NELSON Associated Press

FAIRHOPE, Ala. — Mardi Gras. It brings to mind beads, parties and fancy floats in New Orleans as people cram in all the fun they can before Lent begins. In reality, Mardi Gras has long been celebrated in coastal towns from Texas to Florida. And it means big business. “It is more of a regional thing, Mardi Gras is, from Texas down to Gasparilla (pirate festival) down in the Tampa area,” said Stephen Toomey, whose family started a chain of Mobile, Ala.-based Mardi Gras party supply stores. “It means a way of life for people who live in these communities, but the bottom line is that it creates a lot of jobs.”

Tourism leaders estimate more than 1 million visitors pour into the Mobile area each Mardi Gras season to watch the festivities. The city claims to be the place where the Fat Tuesday celebration originated in the U.S. back in the early 1700s. New Orleans and Mobile have long disputed where the tradition that dates to their French founders really began. Visitors to Mobile spend money at hotels, restaurants and stores during the celebration that can stretch weeks and includes dozens of parades, balls and other events. A 2004 study commissioned by the city of Mobile estimated Mardi Gras had a $225 million economic impact for the

area and tourism leaders say that has grown as the festivities become more popular. “I would say tens of thousands of dollars are spent on the different beads and throws and things that are thrown off the floats. It really benefits every kind of retailer and the tourism industry,” said David Randel, president of the Mobile Bay Convention and Visitors Bureau. “From a convention and visitors bureau standpoint, you hope people come for Mardi Gras, fall in love with the area and come back to visit again when the weather is better.” In smaller towns like Fairhope, population 17,000, Mardi Gras is a big help.

Horoscopes Sunday, February 19, 2012 BY HOLIDAY MATHIS Creators Syndicate

This week the sun and Neptune are exploring the early degrees of Pisces, the sign of faith, spirituality and deeply held beliefs. A conjunction of these dreamy influences will inspire contemplation and new insight regarding belief systems. Soul searching is favored. Good fortune comes when the subconscious becomes conscious. ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your social talents shine. You have a knack for summarizing and coming up with an action plan. Other talents of yours include bringing things full circle and helping people move on. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There is tremendous happiness in making others happy. You’ll strive for this and love the challenge of it. It’s about being tuned in to the very specific things that make a person smile. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Financial matters need to be spelled out. It would be risky to assume others are on the same page as you if you never read aloud said “page.” Spell out the terms in a non-emotional way. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your energy comes from enjoying your life. When you feel tired, it’s because you haven’t made “fun” a high enough priority. Decide what would bring more humor and levity into your world, and take action. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You have the gift of gab over the next three days. You’ll use your words to entertain and enlighten others. Your ability to actualize your ideas depends on how well you can express them.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You can be under-confident at times. You are so focused on what you need to improve that you forget to give yourself credit for all you have accomplished. Cultivate a healthy regard for yourself and your powers. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Because you have an active, curious mind, you are likely to follow distractions a bit longer than is good for keeping to your schedule. However, when it’s time to get down to business, you do what needs to be done. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your first priority will be to get along with people. It is from this intention that all good things will come to you. You genuinely care about what’s best for those around you just as much as you care about what’s good for you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You will be inspired by the prospect of getting an award. Tangible evidence of your talents will motivate you to continue to strive for excellence. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll enjoy a bit of cosmic mathematical justice, which doesn’t always follow a logical path. For instance, shared grief is half the sorrow, but happiness, when shared, is doubled. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There is nothing to be gained from unfair self-criticism. It is very difficult, if not impossible, to be confident of yourself if you are habitually hard on yourself. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). One way to deal with tense situations is to avoid them altogether. You correctly will sense when to make a speedy exit. Follow-through is key. You’ll depart the scene in as friendly a manner as possible.


Heavenly Creations Bakery sold 1,500 Mardi Gras king cakes in 2011. Owner Robyn Yoder hopes to beat that this year. The colorful cakes go for $9.99 for a small and $19.99 for a large. “Mardi Gras is good for everyone. I think it brings more people downtown and it brings more people in. It’s a boost in sales and it does a lot for all of us, more tips for the girls who work, it’s good,” she said. Rosie Miller has sold Mardi Gras ball gowns to the women of the Gulf Coast for 30 years. She has thousands of gowns, most for under $300. “Poufy Gowns this year are really in,” Miller said as she pulled a gown from one the dozens of racks at her Mobile store on a recent morning.

Miller said Mardi Gras gowns are usually overthe-top and are more fun than traditional formal. The store has vanloads of women from small towns all over the region who come to shop. Some buy five or six gowns for the various balls they attend during the season. “Mardi Gras has grown and grown and brings millions of dollars into our economy,” she said, although she didn’t have specific figures. People who might go to New Orleans for Mardi Gras sometimes drive east and include a beach trip to Pensacola, Fla., said Valeria Lento, spokeswoman for Visit Pensacola. Lento said Mardi Gras drives up the town’s tourism numbers during its

traditional pre-spring break down time. And the city offers lots of Mardi Gras activities to bring in tourists. Small towns all over the Gulf Coast have parades, balls and other festivities during Carnival Season. Pensacola Beach’s 2012 Mardi Gras’ Schedule includes 16 events from Jan. 7 to Feb. 21. Among them are a Moon Pie party, a red beans and rice lunch, a “Kids and Kritters” parade and a shoe box float contest. “Oh yeah, Mardi is a ball, absolutely, it’s fun,” said Jill Jones, who dressed her Afghan hound up in a headband, jester collar and cape and wore a matching costume during the beach’s pet parade this month.

Top 10 Reasons For Reading A Newspaper: 1. My newspaper has never crashed, gone down or flashed animated ads at me. 2. Anywhere I travel, my newspaper goes with me. I don’t need a laptop or a wireless connection or a PDA. 3. I can read my newspaper while standing, while eating, while riding a bus, but not while driving my car, which is just as well since I should be paying attention to the road. 4. If I read a story I like, I can tear it out and save it, and not have to pay to read it 30 days later. 5. I don’t have to sign in or customize or register or remember passwords to read my newspaper. And I often enjoy articles in my newspaper on topics I wouldn’t normally think I’d be interested in. 6. My newspaper has high-resolution pictures and type on large pages that load almost instantly, making it easy to browse and enjoy. 7. My newspaper is cheap, disposable and easy to replace. If it’s lost or stolen, it’s no big deal. 8. My newspaper is not made of unrecyclable toxic materials. 9. If my newspaper makes a mistake, the correction is posted with an explanation. It’s not sneaky applied to the original story after I’ve read it. 10. I can read my newspaper sitting outside on a nice day in the sun, even if a breeze is blowing, because I know how to fold a newspaper.
