Fitch addresses civic clubs BY JEBB JOHNSTON

Lynn Fitch is excited to be Mississippi’s number-cruncher. “I believe in saving dollars wherever we can,” said the state treasurer as she addressed members of Kiwanis, Rotary and Civitans during a Corinth visit on Tuesday. The treasurer’s office runs the state bank, conducting more than $26 billion in transactions in a year’s time. “Your bank is doing very well,” said Fitch, a Republican who took office in January 2012. One of her first initiatives was a review of the state’s bonding authority. The office refinanced about $4 billion in bonds right away. “When we did that, we saved about $33 million for the taxpayers,” said Fitch. “We moved a lot of variable rates into fixed rates because it’s a good time to do that.” The office renegotiated fees, trimming another $600,000 annually. Last year, the office invited the bond rating agencies to Mississippi as it sought to retain a favorable rating. Mississippi has had the “AA” rating for some time.

The office also determined each Mississippian’s share of the state’s debt to be $1,790, a number that Fitch hopes to reduce. Fitch also touted the return of the college savings plan known

Horse owners in McNairy County have been warned about an outbreak equine infectious anemia by the state Veterinarian’s Office after six cases of the EIA virus were found in two places in the county. The state declined to name the locations of the horses other than to say they were in McNairy County at different places. The six horses are now quarantined and are being monitored by the state. Tennessee’s Vet’s Office has a rule that all horses must be tested every year to see if they have the EIA. The horses that go to rodeos, saddle shoes or are comingled with other horses are more subject to getting the disease, said Dr. Charlie Hatcher, of the state office. Dr. Hatcher said that if the horses show later that they have EIA the horse owner will

Sam Kemp chats with State Auditor Lynn Fitch at Shiloh Ridge Tuesday following her talk before a joint meeting of Rotary, Kiwanis and Civitans. “They had not been in Mississippi in quite a while,” she said. “It’s important to get them here to see all of us, see what we have going on in the state of Mississippi, to talk about jobs and see the community involvement.” Out of that also came a debt affordability study, which was

released in January. “It’s strictly statistics and numbers — how much could we do, what are the needs of the three largest agencies and the universities and the community colleges and so forth — what do they need for the next five years,” said Fitch.

School district still Telecommunicators to be honored debating free lunches BY STEVE BEAVERS


Alcorn School District board member Carroll Morton wants all students at the districts 11 schools to have free lunch every day. Discussion began this week on how the district can make that happen with or without federal assistance. Bill Urban, food service supervisor with the Mississippi Department of Education, met with board members about the options offered from the state. “The program most districts have been hearing about is brand new. It is called the Community Eligibility Program,” said Urban. “The



USDA governs the program that can provide free lunch to any school district in the nation that meets certain criteria.” A monthly report is generPlease see LUNCHES | 6A

There aren’t many thanks for those calm voices at the other end of the phone. The job of a dispatcher often goes unnoticed until an emergency. “We are the hidden heroes,” said Alcorn County E911 Director Kim McCreless. “A dispatcher has to be very caring and make a lot of sacrifices.” A week in April has been set aside to honor individuals who have the role of being the initial first responders during an emergency situation. National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week is set for April 13-19 around the country to honor those in the Emergency Communications field. “Over the last few years we

of education outreach by having the younger generation perform at the concert series,” said club reporter Bobbi Campbell. “One of our main goals is to support music in schools.” Corinth’s choir and ensemble will perform such songs as The Star-Spangled Banner, The Battle Hymn of the Republic, Dream of Martin Luther King, We Shall Overcome, America, Goober Peas, Lorena, What Shall We Do With the Drunken Sailor, Hush My Babe, The Turtle Dove and Sing Praise,

Alleluia. “Some of the songs will tie in with Black History Month and the Civil War period,” said Campbell. Selections from the Dr. Martin Luther King protest era along with gospel pieces will also be included in the short program which is free and open to the public. The Corinth Music Club is a member of the Mississippi Federation of Music Clubs. Organized in 1922, the club is celebrating its 92nd season.

and four part-time dispatchers. The department also employs a full-time and part-time secretary. “We have a great group of people,” said McCreless, who has been a part of E911 for 19 years. “The job is something that gets in your blood.” Each year, the second full week of April is dedicated to the men and women who serve as public safety telecommunicators. The official name of the week was originally introduced in Congress in 1991. The Congressional resolution stated there were more than “500,000 telecommunications specialists,” although other

estimates put the number of dispatchers at just over 200,000. “We just don’t answer the phone,” said 11-year veteran dispatcher Murry Bragg. “Each day we strive to make Alcorn County safer and better.” McCreless said her department has set aside a day when all the employees will get together for a meal and celebrate the week. “It will be a special night that we can’t normally do because we are all working different shifts,” said the director. “It’s just a big family along with firemen and police.” A desire to help has led local dispatchers to the profession. “This is a calling for

me,” said dispatcher Selina Hastings. “I felt a need to help people and I like knowing what I do benefits others.” “Knowing I made a difference to help others keeps me coming back every day,” added Bragg. Emergency Communications is not a job, according to Hastings. “It is a personal commitment of our minds and talents to benefit the people we serve,” she said. “It is a higher calling for us with tremendous responsibility that demands personal sacrifice, not for self-interest, but for the common good of all people,” added McCreless. “The calling isn’t suited for everyone, but we have chosen it as ours.”

Man sentenced in tobacco scheme The Associated Press

ABERDEEN — A North Carolina man has been sentenced to 40 months in prison and $5.1 million in restitution payments for his involvement in a multistate scheme to avoid taxes and fees on tobacco sales. Calvin Phelps, who operated four tobacco sales businesses in Mocksville, N.C., pleaded guilty to three counts of wire

fraud, contraband cigarette trafficking and money laundering in 2012. The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports Phelps was sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court in Aberdeen, Miss. Phelps was accused of bilking the U.S., Mississippi and some other states out of more than $4 million. In his plea agreement,

he admitted reporting that certain brands of cigarettes were to be exported and consumed outside the U.S., when, in fact, they were to be sold domestically. The plea document states that from 2007 into 2009, Phelps sold some 16,022 cases of these cigarettes for $3.19 million through G-Corp and evaded nearly $5 million in fees and taxes.

Across The Region School district OKs technology upgrade BOONEVILLE — Prentiss County schools will see a boost in Internet access beginning with the next school year. The school board recently heard from district Technology Coordinator Luke Ledbetter who received approval to enter into a contract with AT&T for districtwide Internet service beginning with the start of the new fiscal year on July 1. Ledbetter said the new service will bring up to 100 mbps service to all of the district’s campuses and the central office at a total cost of $500 per site per month. Ledbetter said the move will greatly improve Internet access

throughout the district by addressing a lack of bandwidth districtwide. New school and district websites are also on the way with the approval of a contract with School In Sites. The approximately $2,000 per year contract will provide for the creation and maintenance of new sites for each school in the district and the overall district.

Corinth, Miss.

Notes from a corner FISHTRAP HOLLOW — I work in a corner of my bedroom. My desk is an old, dark wicker one, about three feet wide and two feet deep. Its small size keeps mess at a minimum. There is a window to my Rheta right, and I try not to look out Johnson when I’m supposed to be writing. When I part the curtains Columnist to stare, I see yellow daffodils on a drab March landscape, yellow butter on dry toast. On the wall in front of me are things to admire. There is a pastel drawing of my niece Chelsey when she was about 8, all shiny hair and bright eyes, a small gap between her two front teeth. That photo helps me remember to write well. Someday she might read these words. There are two cards of French buttons held by thumbtacks to the flowered-y wallpaper. One says “Boutons de Paris” and the other “LaMode, since 1877.” They are the pastel of Easter eggs, far too pretty to put in a drawer. Also from a French flea market, I have a cardboard wheel that conjugates a single French verb, “rougir,” which means “to blush.” I bought it for the illustration, a French boy in a big hat kissing a shy girl in an apron. For some reason, I have lots of signs that people have given me. One, a gift from friend Terry, says, “Well-behaved women rarely make history.” How true. Another, from Barbara, says “Write your own life story” and has a photograph of an old manual typewriter. I write my own life story daily -- on the installment plan. Can’t wait to see how it ends. One of my favorites is a greeting card from cousin Marilyn who lives in New Mexico. It has a photograph of a sheep standing behind a picket fence with a sign that says “Beware of the Sheep.” It features a Mark Twain quote: “Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it’s time to reform.” Whenever you hear a brilliant saying, it usually was uttered by Benjamin Franklin, Mark Twain or Willie Nelson. Besides the drawing of Chelsey, I have two more originals -- a framed copy of an Arlo and Janis comic strip, my favorite, and a Joanne Camp watercolor of the little red house in the hayfield. I have a postcard from Villedieu in Provence, a village I stumbled upon after seeing its glory in a painting in a fancy gallery earlier the same day. I sat in an outdoor cafe in the center of the small village, marveling at coincidence and watching French farmers on tractors pulling open hampers of grapes to the wineries. It was harvest season. After I returned home, I contacted the gallery and bought the watercolor to surprise my husband. It did. On my desk itself I have a laptop computer, a Toshiba entering its seventh year of service. I dread changing computers, and I’ve had fewer in a long career than Elizabeth Taylor did husbands. I also keep Strunk and White’s “The Elements of Style,” third edition, with its 85 pages of indispensable advice. “Very. Use this word sparingly. Where emphasis is necessary, use words strong in themselves.” Now that everyone with a computer fancies himself a writer, I think “The Elements” should be required reading. A daily devotional of “don’ts.” Now you have “seen” where I write, or don’t, as the case may be, two dogs on mats at my feet.

Prayer for today Loving Father, I thank thee that thou art the same yesterday, to-day, and forever; and I am glad I cannot receive from thee the slights and wounds that I may give or receive from my friends. May I be considerate and more forgiving, and by my sincerity be worthy of the purpose which I pursue. Amen.

Hillary won’t have an easy ride to presidency Will Hillary Clinton be elected America’s next president? The polls suggest she will. Recent polls compiled by Real Clear Politics show her winning 67 percent of the vote in Democratic primaries, with no other candidate above 11 percent. General election polling shows Clinton with an average lead over various possible Republican nominees of 51 to 39 percent. But an election isn’t over until it is over, and this one hasn’t started. For one thing, no one is sure whether Clinton will actually run. She turns 69 in 2016 (the same age as Ronald Reagan when he was first elected in 1980) and she may consider that her achievements in eight years as first lady and U.S. senator, and four years as secretary of state are enough for one lifetime. Her achievements in that last office may look less impressive than they did in the first Obama term when majorities expressed approval of the president’s foreign policy. Clinton’s proudly proclaimed “reset” with Russia suddenly looks less like a triumph than a misfire. She’s also had health scares: a blood clot behind her right knee in 1998 and another in her skull in December 2012. The 2016 election will

be only the fourth in the last 40 years in which the incumbent president wasn’t runMichael ning. In Barone the previous three -Columnist 1988, 2000, 2008 -- the candidate of the president’s party ran roughly in line with the incumbent’s job approval. That produced a 53 percent to 46 percent victory for George H. W. Bush, a popular vote plurality for Al Gore and a 53-46 defeat for John McCain. The odd thing about 2016 polling is that Hillary Clinton runs far above Barack Obama’s current job approval while in the few polls pitting Vice President Joe Biden and others against Republicans, those Democrats run far behind. That’s odd, because we’re in a period of straight-ticket voting, and in recent Senate and House elections, Democratic candidates have won percentages highly correlated with Obama’s job approval. One reason Clinton may be running ahead of the president’s approval is the high retrospective approval of Bill Clinton’s presidency. The 1990s are remembered, largely but not entirely ac-

curately, as a time of booming job growth, technological progress, peace and American primacy abroad. The last six years of Clinton’s presidency, when Republicans had majorities in both houses of Congress, are seen as times of bipartisan cooperation and reform. Back in 2008, Obama said he wanted to be a transformative president like Ronald Reagan, rather than an accommodating president like Bill Clinton. Obama has operated that way, declining Clinton-style triangulating between his party’s liberals and the other party’s conservatives. Today’s low Obama approval rating and Clinton’s higher percentages suggest that many independent voters prefer the Clinton model. But if Bill Clinton is a political asset for his wife’s candidacy, he could also prove to be a liability. He has continued to be more politically active than just about any other former president except Andrew Jackson and Theodore Roosevelt. Two other family members of presidents have been elected president while those former presidents were alive, but both forebears were politically inactive. George H. W. Bush withdrew from politics after he lost in 1992, and John Adams was 89 years old when John Quincy Adams

took the oath in 1825. A case can be made that many voters would be pleased to see an experienced, somewhat mellowed and undoubtedly brainy Bill Clinton as an adviser always on call to a second President Clinton. But personal feelings toward Bill Clinton were decidedly negative after the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke, and a case can be made that many voters have little appetite for having such shenanigans touch the White House again. On balance I suspect that Bill Clinton would be more of an asset than a liability to a Hillary Clinton candidacy. But I’m not sure whether voters have sorted out their conflicting feelings about the 42nd president. And I’m not sure whether Hillary Clinton’s poll numbers represent anything more than a preference for a familiar and widely respected figure over passels of little-known Democrats (and a much-derided vice president) and Republicans. We’ll see -- if she runs.

Republicans and the black vote Recently former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice added her voice to those who have long been urging the Republican Party to reach out to black voters. Not only is that long overdue, what is also long overdue is putting some time -and, above all, some serious thought -- into how to go about doing it. Too many Republicans seem to think that the way to “reach out” is to offer blacks and other minorities what the Democrats are offering them. Some have even suggested that the channels to use are organizations like the NAACP and black “leaders” like Jesse Jackson -- that is, people tied irrevocably to the Democrats. Voters who want what the Democrats offer can get it from the Democrats. Why should they vote for Republicans who act like makebelieve Democrats? Yet there are issues where Republicans have a big advantage over Democrats -if they will use that advantage. But an advantage that you don’t use might as well

not exist. The issue on which Democrats are most vulnerable, and have the Thomas least room Sowell to maneuver, is school Columnist c h o i c e . Democrats are heavily in hock to the teachers’ unions, who see public schools as places to guarantee jobs for teachers, regardless of what that means for the education of students. Because teachers’ unions oppose charter schools, most Democrats oppose them, including black Democrats up to and including President Barack Obama. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio’s recent cutback on funding for charter schools, and creating other obstacles for them, showed a calloused disregard for black youngsters, for whom a decent education is their one shot at a better life. But did you hear any Republican say anything about it?

Minimum wage laws are another government-created disaster for minority young people. Many people today would be surprised to learn that there were once years when the unemployment rate for black 16-year-olds and 17-year-olds was under 10 percent. But their unemployment rates have not been under 20 percent in more than half a century. Why such great differences between earlier and later times? In the late 1940s, inflation had rendered meaningless the minimum wage set in 1938. Without that encumbrance, black teenagers found it a lot easier to get jobs than after minimum wage escalations that began in the 1950s. Republicans have failed to explain why the minimum wage laws that Democrats support are counterproductive for blacks. Worse yet, during the 2012 election campaign Mitt Romney advocated indexing the minimum wage for inflation, which would not only guarantee its bad effects, but put an end to discussing those

bad effects. Are issues like these going to switch the black vote as a whole over into the Republican column at the next election? Of course not. Nor will embracing the Democrats’ racial agenda. But, if Republicans can reduce the 90 percent of the black vote that goes to Democrats to 80 percent, that can be enough to swing a couple of close Congressional elections -- as a start. Even to achieve that, however, will require targeting those particular segments of the black population that are not irrevocably committed to the Democrats. Parents who want their children to get a decent education are one obvious example. But first Republicans have got to want to learn, and to be willing to do some thinking, in order to get their message across.

Speed caused actor Walker’s car crash LOS ANGELES -- The Porsche carrying “Fast & Furious� star Paul Walker was traveling about 90 mph when it went out of control on a suburban street and crashed, killing the actor and his friend, according to an investigation by law enforcement agencies into the November accident. The sports car driven by Roger Rodas slammed into a light pole that had a 45 mph speed limit sign, and it burst into flames. Walker and Rodas died at the scene. Investigators concluded that unsafe driving, not mechanical problems, caused the crash, according to a person who has reviewed a report by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and California Highway Patrol. Investigators calculated that Rodas was driving between 81 mph and 94 mph when his 2005 Porsche Carrera GT began to drift after coming out of a curve. “The vehicle had no mechanical failure and the damage that oc-

curred to the vehicle was from the collision,â€? accident reconstruction specialists with the Highway Patrol wrote. Â

Emergency system failed to stop train CHICAGO -- An emergency track-side braking system activated but failed to stop a Chicago commuter train from jumping the tracks and barreling to the top of an escalator at O’Hare International Airport, a federal investigator said Tuesday. The events that led to Monday’s accident, which occurred around 3 a.m. and injured more than 30 passengers, might have begun with the train operator dozing off toward the end of her shift, according the union representing transit workers. But Tuesday’s announcement that a piece of emergency safety equipment might have failed was the first indication the accident could have been caused by human error and mechanical failure. National Transportation Safety Board investigator Ted Turpin said a preliminary review showed the train was

Expert warned of mudslide danger ARLINGTON, Wash. -- A scientist working for the government had warned 15 years ago about the potential for a catastrophic landslide in the fishing village where the collapse of a rain-soaked hillside over the weekend killed at least 14 people and left scores missing. As rescue workers slogged through the muck and rain in search of victims Tuesday, word of the 1999 report raised questions about why residents were allowed to build homes on the hill and whether officials had taken proper precautions. “I knew it would fail catastrophically in a large magnitude event,� though not when it would happen, said Daniel Miller, a geomorphologist who was hired by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to do the study. “I was not surprised.�

Education members await confirmation JACKSON -- Two members of the state Board of Education await confirmation in the Mississippi Senate. Former Clinton Mayor Rosemary Aultman is nominated to serve through June 2022. Richard Morrison, an assistant superintendent of Rankin County schools, is nominated to serve through June 2023. Aultman was nominated to the nine-member state board by House Speaker Philip Gunn, while Morrison was nominated by Gov. Phil Bryant. They have both been serving while awaiting Senate confirmation. The Senate Education Committee on Tuesday endorsed both of the board members. The committee also endorsed Todd Ivey of Madison as director of the state Department of Education’s office of educational accountability. He was nominated by the Board of Education.Â

Transportation says several phases of the Interstate 269 construction project are more than halfway complete. Northern District Transportation Commissioner Mike Tagert said construction on the more than $640 million interstate project began in 2011 and is scheduled for completion in the fall of 2015. I-269 in Mississippi is composed of seven individual projects that total approximately 25 miles of four-lane highway in Desoto and Marshall counties. Once completed, I-269

will form a 30-mile loop around Memphis through Mississippi and Tennessee. In Mississippi, I-269 will begin at the I-55/I-69 intersection north of Hernando, cross Highway 78 near Byhalia and continue northeast to the Tennessee state line. Tagert said the bypass will relieve traffic pressure on the I-55/I-69 corridor and connect I-40 and I-55 in North Mississippi. I-40 is a major cross-country freight route, and I-69 will be an international connector between Canada and Mexico.

as the Mississippi Prepaid Affordable College Tuition program, one of two run by the treasurer’s office. The return of MPACT was announced on Monday. “We came in and looked at this program, we looked at the sustainability and viability, and we said we have to pause,” she said. “We can’t afford to put any more burden on any of the taxpayers until we know this fund is sustainable.” The program began in a time of double-digit interest earnings and, in the 15 years since, many states have closed similar plans, she said. The shortfall of $82 million will be reduced but not erased by re-

opening the program, she expects. In the realm of education, Fitch is also pushing for efforts to improve financial literacy among youth. “We’re throwing them out into the world, throwing them into college, and they don’t have a clue about how to pay their car note, how does a mortgage work, compounded interest — it’s all new and foreign to them,” she said. “So we’ve done it a disservice.” The office is developing an online financial literacy class geared toward youth with hope that the business community will support the effort with incentives. Fitch, who grew up in Holly Springs, made several other stops while visiting Corinth.


have to either euthanize the horse or quarantine the horse for life. The horses have yet to show a clinical sign they have the deadly virus. The doctor said that horses can get the disease from biting flies that are normally tough on the horses at this time of the year. He recommended the only real way an owner could protect his horses would be to use insect repellent to battle horse flies that plague the horses in the summer. Dr. Hatcher said the symptoms of a horse with EIA would be anemia and getting lethar-

gic that becomes easily apparent to the owner of the horse. He said that some people call the disease “Swamp Fever.” According to the UT Ag officials, there is no vaccination or cure for the disease, which only affects horses. Veterinarians have said the state takes equine infectious anemia, also called Coggins, very seriously. Two separate tests are run by the State Veterinarian’s Office. If the horse tests positive the second time, it either has to be euthanized on the premises, slaughtered or has to be quarantined 200 yards from any other horses. Equine Infectious Anemia is a viral horse disease trans-

mitted primarily by biting flies such as the horse fly and deer fly. Tennessee animal health regulations require annual testing of all horses that change ownership or are commingled with horses of multiple ownership. A fact sheet on Equine Infectious Anemia can be found at the following link, http:// equine_infectious_anemia. pdf. Questions related to the regulation of Equine Infectious Anemia can be directed to the State Veterinarian’s office at 615-837-5120 or to

this district eligible right now is Glendale Elementary with 49.6 percent. Bottom line is, the school district is not a candidate for this program.” Morton explained his stance on free lunches. “We have tax payers in this county who are willing to accept the burden of the costs associated with offering every stu-

dent free lunch,” Morton said. “If we are willing to pay the difference, is there someway we could continue getting funded from the state?” According to Urban, the state doesn’t offer a program that would continue reimbursing the district if they choose this route. “It’s rare for a school district to be willing to take on the cost of free lunches with state reimbursement,” added Urban. “Only 75 percent of the kids in this district currently receiving the benefit of reduced lunches are actually eating. We need to figure out how to fix this before moving forward on a district wide free lunch program.” Urban said he has been working closely with the

school district’s food service director, Peggie Bundy. “I’m going to help Mrs. Bundy with some aggressive letters that we can get sent to the households of students who are currently on the reduced lunch program,” said Urban. “We want to make sure these households are aware that their child is receiving the benefit of reduced lunch and aren’t using it.” Urban said the district’s participation numbers are “pretty darn good,” when compared across the state. “In January, the district feed 1,860 kids reduced lunch and in February that number jumped to 2,147,” Urban said. “Other districts have been do-

from the state for a percentage of lunches provided. “If the district’s revenues are not greater than the expenses, the school district will have to pay the difference,” Urban added. “That could be more than $200,000.” Former board president and district one representative Russ Nash requested preliminary figures be prepared and presented to the board that details the amount that the board might have to incur. “It’s like we’re going into a dark corner with this,” said Nash. “I think we all would really like to know just how much money we may have to cover if we went with Provision Two.” Urban agreed to compile a best case and worst case scenario for the district. The information will be presented at the April 14 board meeting.

It’s a requirement that students must get a lunch in order to get a smoothie.” Urban shared another program with the board. “Provision Two is a program I would not advise in this district, but it might help accomplish what Mr. Morton is wanting to do,” added Urban. “It is a four-year program where the district will have to accept applications for free or reduced lunch the first year. Those first year applications numbers will determine the amount of money the district receives for the next three years.” Urban said Provision Two would cost the district money, but would allow the district to offer free lunch district wide and still be reimbursed

FLOWERS — Nasturtium flowers and their foliage are edible and can make a nice appetizer that pleases the eyes and the palate, left. NASTURTIUM — Nasturtium Night and Day is an elegant combination of bright, clear cream and darkmahogany flowers, above.

Nasturtium is beautiful, tasty addition to gardens Shopping in a garden center in the spring confronts visitors with an almost dizzying array of new plants with flower colors that seem to go beyond our imagination. But today, I’m not writing about any of those plants. I want you to consider an old-time Gary g a r d e n Bachman staple that many garSouthern deners forGardening get about -- the nasturtium. I’ve been growing nasturtiums in my garden and landscape for the past couple of years and couldn’t be happier with the results. Nasturtiums are a good choice for the garden because they are beautiful and so easy to grow. In addition to requiring very little attention, nasturtiums are versatile and edible. That’s the trifecta for plants in my garden. Their variety of flower colors is amazing. The warm yellow, red and orange flower colors shout out for attention when planted in the full sun. There also are bicolors with dark eyes and double flower selections. Each flower has a long spur on the back that contains sweet nectar. The flowers are held on long stems

FOLIAGE — The Alaska nasturtium has greenand-white variegated foliage. It has a mounding growth habit and yellow, crimson, salmon and cherry flowers.

and seem to float above the dark-green, pepperytasting foliage. I’m growing at least four varieties this year. Alaska has green-andwhite variegated foliage, along with flowers of yellow, crimson, salmon and cherry. It has a mounding growth habit. Empress of India is an heirloom that dates back to the Victorian era. Its dark-green foliage acts as the perfect background for the dramatic scarlet-red flowers. Night and Day is an elegant combination of bright, clear cream and dark-mahogany flowers. Jewel Mix is my favorite. It has red, orange and yellow single and double flowers. Nasturtiums are annual plants, and now is the

perfect time in Mississippi to sow the seeds right where you want them in the garden. The seeds are large and resemble a convoluted pea. They will germinate quicker if you soak them overnight. Set the seed about an inch deep, spaced 8 to 10 inches apart. With direct seeding, there’s always the possibility of “accidental weeding,� but the leaves are unique and easy to recognize. You can always start in small pots and transplant them to the garden when they get bigger. It takes about 50 days after sowing for the plants to start flowering. Nasturtiums tolerate less-than-perfect soil, as long as it is well drained. These plants like to be

filled. Arrange the stuffed flowers on a bed of nasturtium foliage. This is best served at room temperature so the floral notes of the nasturtium flowers can be enjoyed. So choose nasturtiums for your garden this summer, and you can enjoy them in the landscape and on the table.

I like to grow them in containers so I can move the plants around my landscape. Keep the plant dense by pruning the vining stem tips. Pinch off the faded flowers to promote more flowers, but since the flowers are edible, you shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any fading flowers to pinch off. Whenever nasturtiums are in season, a crowdpleasing appetizer around the Bachman household is stuffed nasturtium flowers. Gently wash a bunch of flowers and foliage. Mix whipped cream cheese with finely chopped fresh herbs (we like fresh basil), and put the mixture into a piping bag. A zip-top bag with a corner cut off works well. Gently pipe the mixture into the nasturtium flower until the center is

Surge in IPOs The IPO market is heating up this week. A range of companies plan to make their debuts, along with King Digital Entertainment, the maker of the popular mobile game “Candy Crush Saga.” It will add to the 53 companies that have priced their initial public stock offerings this year. That’s 76.7 percent higher than the total over the same period in 2013. This strong first quarter reflects the momentum the IPO market gained last year when 222 companies began trading for the first time, the highest total since 2000. Castlight Health (CSLT), (COUP), and Paylocity Holding (PCTY), are among the companies that tapped the public market for financing this month. All three saw their shares climb on their first day of trading, but each has since fallen below its first-day closing price. On the horizon? Chinese social media company Weibo has filed plans for a potential offering in the U.S. And on Tuesday, the online storage provider Box – which has more than 25 million users – said will seek to raise $250 million through an IPO.

U.S.-E.U. summit

Manufacturing bellwether

President Barack Obama is due to meet with European allies in Brussels today. The U.S.-European Union summit is part of Obama’s weeklong trip to Europe and comes as the U.S. and its allies try to step up pressure on Russian President Vladimir Putin over Moscow’s annexation of Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula and prevent the crisis from escalating.

Demand for durable goods, items expected to last at least three years, has slowed in recent months. Durable goods orders declined 1 percent in January and 5.3 percent in December. A steep decline in orders for commercial aircraft contributed to drop in durable goods orders for both months. Economists expect demand for durable goods rebounded last month. The February figures are due out today.

A harsh winter has dampened home sales this year and also led to banks receiving fewer requests for home loans. Five of the last six weekly surveys by the Mortgage Bankers Association have shown a decline in new residential mortgage applications. Did the trend continue last week? Find out today, when the MBA releases its latest survey of home loan applications.

Coming Up In The Daily Corinthian The Daily Corinthian’s collection of magazines puts the focus on families this month with Crossroads Magazine Family Edition, coming Saturday, March 29, in the Daily Corinthian.

Husband can’t erase wife’s journal writing about affair DEAR ABBY: I have been married almost 20 years. Eight years ago my wife began an emotional affair with a co-worker. It lasted a year, until he left the company. Although they never had sex, they did have some physical contact that most people would consider inappropriate, and my wife considered ending our marriage because of the feelings she had for him. She now says the episode was a huge mistake and she loves me more than ever. The problem is, she wrote many entries about him in a journal. I know she kept writing about him several years after they lost contact, including saying that she loved him more than a year after he’d left. I want my wife to remove the portions of the journal pertaining to this guy. She doesn’t want to. I’m still hurting from this and am considering counseling, but for now, what do you think? Should she get rid of the journal? -- CONSIDERING COUNSELING DEAR CONSIDERING COUNSELING: Because you are still hurting seven years after the fact, stop “considering” counseling and get it NOW. If your wife is a serious journal writer -- and many people are -that she would want her writings to remain intact in spite of the

fact they reflect her emotional affair is not unusual. If that’s the case, instead of insisting she edit or Abigail destroy her my Van Buren journal, advice is to stop reading Dear Abby it. D E A R ABBY: I’m a 47-year-old man who was single until seven years ago. Then I met “Maggie,” the most wonderful woman I had ever known. She wasn’t the hotsy-totsy one-nighter type I was used to. She was a real woman who fulfilled everything I had ever dreamed of (including bringing a wonderful 4-year-old little girl into my life). The biological father is out of the picture. Maggie had wrestled with some health issues -- nothing serious until last April, when she had surgery. Complications set in, and I lost the only person who ever mattered, aside from our little girl. My question is, since we were never married, how do I refer to Maggie when relating what happened? I am in the process of adopting her daughter and explanations to strangers are tough.

(”Wow, you’re taking on a child when you don’t HAVE to?”) How do I respond to these remarks? I know this is a multi-part question, but I have so many unanswered questions lately, I figured I’d ask you for an opinion. -- GRIEVING IN MISSOURI DEAR GRIEVING: Although you and Maggie weren’t legally married, you were a couple for some time. I’m very sorry for your loss. It would be accurate to refer to her as your late significant other, your partner or longtime girlfriend. I would like to compliment you for stepping up to care for the girl when her biological father did not. And I do have suggestions for how to respond to anyone insensitive enough to ask why you would “take on” a child you didn’t “have to.” The first would be to ignore the question. The second would be to avoid such a person in the future, and the third would be to reply, “I love her like a daughter, want to make sure she’s secure and provided for, and THAT’S why I’m doing it.” (Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.)

Horoscopes ARIES (March 21-April 19). The day’s events include pressures that you are not used to. Take your time. Solutions spring from a relaxed frame of mind. Also, many an excellent idea has been born in a hot shower. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). As for the thing you keep trying and failing to accomplish, you’re close to a breakthrough. A winning method will be presented to you, and it’s something you can stick to. This is going to work! GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Getting yourself to focus on what you’re supposed to be doing may be difficult, especially when you have the freedom that comes with a few hours to yourself. Anyway, there’s something good that comes of veering off course. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Justice will be delivered — but you’ll wonder whether it’s really justice. You know a wrong was committed and that punishment was inevitable, but you’ll question whether it fits the crime. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). In the

natural world, those who are high on the food chain usually have the best chance at survival. This order will be mimicked in the workplace, and your mind will be busy figuring out how to elevate your status. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It’s as though you found the perfect cleaning product for your mind’s eye. With every swipe of your towel, you move toward clarity, and with clarity comes a handsome reward. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If you have a problem that is temporarily affecting your ability to interact the way you normally would, don’t be afraid to tell the others involved. You’ll find people to be most understanding where you are concerned. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll feel an incredibly strong bond with someone without an apparent reason why. Your limited interaction with this person shouldn’t warrant such a fervent connection, and yet you feel the way you do.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It’s likely that the idea of handling your responsibilities before allowing yourself any fun won’t appeal to you one bit. But if you stick to the rules, you’ll be proud of yourself when the day is done. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Tranquility can only be achieved in the now moment. A memory of tranquility is only a hollow reminder, and hopes for tranquility are inherently laced with unrest. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). As marathoners know, it takes careful conservation of personal energy to run a long, slow race. The first step toward your success is realizing that this indeed is a long race, and there won’t be a prize within the first few miles. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).

The recently completed NASCAR weekend at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif., wound up being the Kyle and Kyle show, with Kyle Busch beating Kyle Larson to win Sunday’s 400-mile Sprint Cup race, and Larson beating Busch to win Saturday’s Nationwide Series 300-miler. It was Busch’s 29th career Cup victory and his 11th overall at Auto Club. Larson’s second-place finish on Sunday was the best of his nine-race career, and his win on Saturday was his first in Nationwide and his second major NASCAR victory ever. His first came in a Camping World Truck Series race at Rockingham, N.C., last year. Both events boiled down to late-race duels between Larson and Busch. On Sunday, neither Busch nor Larson appeared to be in position to win, but a series of flat tires by their competitors set up a green-white-checkered-flag run to the finish that both were able to capitalize on. As the laps wound down, Jimmie Johnson was cruising out front, but blew a tire. Jeff Gordon inherited the lead and was just seconds away from taking the white flag, which would have essentially sealed the win for him, when Clint Bowyer blew a tire, spun and brought out the caution. The leaders all headed to pit road for fresh tires, with some taking two and others taking four. On the restart, Busch surged forward from fifth place, while Larson was on the move from ninth. The two Kyles — both riding on four fresh tires — motored past Kurt Busch and Tony Stewart, each of whom took only two tires, with Busch besting Larson over the final lap. Gordon, who appeared to be in the best position to win before the caution flag, dropped to 13th at the finish. Busch’s victory, given his trademark aggressiveness on restarts, was no real surprise, but the run by Larson was an eye-opener. He’s been touted as one of the sport’s next big stars, but few expected such strong early results because the 21-year-old sprint car standout came to the Cup series with little experience in NASCAR-type vehicles. “It’s been a really good weekend,” Larson said after

Sunday’s 400-miler. “I guess you couldn’t ask for more, but I was surprised to get up there late in the race. We were probably a 12th-place car for most of the day.” He said the crew of his No. 42 Chevrolet kept adjusting his car and got it in shape to make a short, strong run at the end. “I was surprised,” he said of his run from ninth place to second over the final two laps. “I just watched it on TV, and it was pretty wild. I might have a shot at Kyle, depending on where he’d go into Turn Three, but he was good enough to keep it on the bottom and stay ahead of me. “But we’ll take a second. I’ll take it and head back to North Carolina with a smile on my face.” Busch said he wasn’t surprised to see Larson in his rearview mirror at the end. He said the youngster’s experience racing Cup veterans in the Nationwide Series gives him a big advantage. “It’s amazing what Nationwide racing will do for you when you’re racing against Cup guys,” Busch said. “It’s no surprise Larson is good. He gets the experience there of racing against us, racing against me, Kevin [Harvick], racing against guys like Matt Kenseth, whoever else the Cup guys are that race Nationwide. “Once he got [to Cup] he was more ready. Now that he’s a Cup guy and performing well on Sundays, it gives him the confidence and the belief in himself and his team that he can do it Saturday and Sunday both.” In Saturday’s 300, Larson, from Elk Grove, Calif., got his first Series victory in his 38th start. In his previous 37 races, he’d finished second five times, including a runner-up run the week prior at Bristol Motor Speedway. But at his home-state track, he would not be denied, as he held off Busch and Harvick for the victory. “It was amazing,” Larson told reporters after that race. “Those last 11 or 12 laps were the longest laps of my life. It was pretty cool to beat those guys.”

Little consensus over cause of multiple blown tires in Auto Club 400 There were more than a dozen blown tires in Sunday’s Auto Club 400, but there was little agreement about the cause. Some drivers and crew chiefs, and NASCAR Vice President Robin Pemberton, attributed the failures to teams taking risks running low air pressures. Teams run low air pressure to give the tire more grip, which makes the car run faster, but the risk is a tire failure. Pemberton said the teams and NASCAR officials have asked Goodyear — the exclusive tire supplier for NASCAR’s top three divisions — to provide a tire that can be managed to get more speed, even if that speed brings about the risk of a blown tire. “We have asked — the competitors have asked — to bring more aggressive tires, to bring tires that they need to manage … how they use them and how they get the most out of them,” he said. “At this point in time, I think Goodyear — it’s the same tire that we’ve run on in the past. Just the car is a little bit different.” The 2014 cars have more downforce than earlier models, and that could lead to more load on the tires. Pemberton said teams were running left-side tires with cold pressures as low as 14 pounds per square inch, whereas the Goodyear recommended minimum is 22 psi.



Kyle Busch’s crew chief, Dave Rogers, said he decided not to lower air pressure on his car, even though it would have produced more speed. “It just wasn’t worth it,” he said. “It wasn’t worth putting the car in jeopardy — putting Kyle in jeopardy — so we played it conservative, and today just worked out for us.” Dale Earnhardt Jr., one of the blown-tire victims, blamed the failures on the roughness of the race track, particularly the backstretch. “The back straightaway is very rough, and I think the tire can’t handle the load that it goes through on that back straightaway,” he said. “It’s just tearing the tire up where the sidewall and tread are put together. “There ain’t another race track on the circuit besides Kentucky that has bumps like that. They’re incredible, huge, huge bumps. And I think that plays a big role in it, because the tire must see astronomical loads through that section of the race track that it never sees any other time at any other circuit.” He suggested repaving that portion of the track. “They don’t need to pave the race track; just pave the back straightaway,” he said. “Not very cheap, but I’ll bet you won’t have any tire problems anymore.”

Casey Roderick kicks off 2014 comeback with Late Model victory in Alabama On the same afternoon that Kyle Larson was beating Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick to win the Nationwide Series race at Auto Club Speedway in California, another 21-year-old driver was kicking off his racing comeback with a win in the Rattler 250 Late Model race at South Alabama Speedway. Casey Roderick, who once looked to be a surefire bet to advance up the NASCAR ladder, had been mostly on the sidelines since the July 2012 Nationwide Series race at Daytona International Speedway. In that event, Roderick, driving an unheralded Toyota, pushed Danica Patrick into the lead and was able to run with the leaders until Patrick changed lanes and left him with no drafting partner. “I dropped back, and Clint Bowyer clipped me and sent me into the wall,” he said. With no sponsorship dollars to bring to the table to continue his career, the Lawrenceville, Ga., native and former Legends racing standout had to make other plans. “I moved to Michigan and worked with my girlfriend’s father, moving people with Atlas Van Lines,” he said. Then he got a call from back home. The Graham family — father Dennis and son D.J. — were looking for a driver for their Late Model team. Roderick returned to Georgia, and the team built a new car for the 38th annual Rattler, one of the South’s showcase short-track events and a race that gets its name from its link to the Rattlesnake Rodeo in nearby Opp, Ala. The team was hampered by a skipping engine all through practice before discovering several damaged spark plug wires. “I knew we had a good-handling car,” Roderick said. “But we really struggled trying to figure out what was wrong with the motor.” Once the race started on the worn, abrasive track, Roderick gradually worked his way to the front and held off Anderson Bowen and Harrison Burton, son of Sprint Cup driver Jeff Burton, to get the victory. “We didn’t have the best car, but it’s all about being there at the end,” Roderick said. It was his first race victory in nearly four years, since he won an ARCA race at New Jersey Motorsports Park in 2010 driving a car fielded by Bill Elliott and longtime NASCAR owner James Finch. Roderick said he’d like to think that his latest win might lead to a return to the top levels of NASCAR, but he said he’s not interested unless it’s in a quality ride. “It’s good experience just to get to run those races, but unless you’re in a good car, I’m not sure it helps in the long run,” he said.

Hamlin misses Auto Club 400

Denny Hamlin missed Sunday’s Auto Club 400 after a sinus condition affected his vision, according to J.D. Gibbs, president of the Joe Gibbs Racing team that employs Hamlin. Gibbs said doctors did not clear Hamlin to race, and he left the track to be checked out at a local hospital. He is expected to be further evaluated this week. Sam Hornish Jr. drove Hamlin’s No. 11 Toyota and finished 17th.

Sprint Cup Series races once were tests of both man and machine. Races on the bigger superspeedways were 500 miles in length, and it was common in the early days for relief drivers to take over for drivers exhausted from wrestling heavy cars without power steering for hours on end. And many a top car fell by the wayside due to blown engines and other parts that failed under the strain of running 500 miles, or even 500 laps on shorter tracks. But it’s a different sport today. Most drivers are in excellent physical condition and appear no worse for the wear after climbing from their cars after a 400- or 500-mile run. The cars are more durable as well. Blown engines are rare, and drivers have the advantage of power steering, better seats and even devices that cool their fire suits during a race. And the world has changed since the glory years of the 1960s, when 500-mile races were a major attraction for race fans. In today’s fast-paced society, many become bored with events that stretch for hours on end without major breaks. NASCAR has begun to respond, cutting the distance of some of its longer races from 500 miles to 400. Sunday’s race at Auto Club Speedway, a 400-miler, was the fifth at that distance since 100 miles were cut from the race after the 2010 running.

Ryan Newman says shorter races build excitement sooner

Sprint Cup driver Ryan Newman says shorter races are better than longer ones. Pocono Raceway’s 500-milers were shortened to 400 miles beginning in 2012. Driver Ryan Newman is among those who say that shorter is better. “Shortening the length of our races

would be great for our sport and great for the fans,” he said. “It would build the excitement sooner. And I don’t think it would necessarily change the outcome. I think it would just intensify our sport.” Denny Hamlin agreed. “Everything is long,” he said. “Our season is long. It’s a very tough schedule. Besides that, [with] these races, sometimes it’s tough to keep your audience for four and a half hours, which is what a 500-mile race around [Auto Club Speedway] would be. “You’re going to find out after 400 or 500, really, what’s the difference? You’ve had a lot of time to work on your race car to get it better. I think some of the 500mile races we have are extremely long, and obviously I’m open to shortening just about anything.” Carl Edwards emphatically disagreed. “No,” he said. “Longer is better. My opinion is that it is supposed to be a test of man and machine. “People pay good money for the tickets and ought to make an afternoon out of it. I guess some people might be jaded that come to the race track every week and only think about going home, but for me — racing, to finish a 500-miler somewhere — that is special. “That is what NASCAR is about to me. It is supposed to take a whole afternoon.”

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — The do-or-die nature of the NCAA tournament is nothing new to Tennessee. The Volunteers (2412) have been playing with virtually no margin for error since late February, after they split their first 14 Southeastern Conference games. That made them primed for the postseason by the time they were awarded an NCAA bid. The 11th-seeded Vols are streaking into Friday’s Midwest Regional semifinal against No. 2 seed Michigan (27-8) with eight wins in their last nine games. After beating Iowa in the First Four, Tennessee ousted No. 6 seed Massachusetts and No. 14

seed Mercer. “I think it did a good job of just putting us on edge every day,” Tennessee guard Josh Richardson said. “I think we kind of had an advantage going into the Iowa game because we’d been playing the do-or-die games for a couple of weeks at that point.” The Vols dismiss the notion that their rise from the First Four to the regional semifinals is a Cinderella story, but they’ve enjoyed responding to the skepticism that surrounded them much of the season. “I wouldn’t call us a Cinderella because we have guys who were highly recruited out of high school, and we have veterans,” Ten-

nessee forward Jarnell Stokes said. “I wouldn’t call us a Cinderella, but it’s definitely motivation that people have doubted us. We’ve been in so many close games this year, and we just haven’t found a way to win up until now. This is the right time to be winning.” One month ago, Tennessee was 16-11 and in danger of missing the NCAA tournament. Critics of Tennessee coach Cuonzo Martin had even started an online petition to bring back former coach Bruce Pearl, who has since been hired at Auburn. The Vols used that talk as motivation. “We’re just fighting for each other, fighting for our coach through all this,” Tennessee

guard Jordan McRae said. “We just make sure we stay together as a family throughout this.” Tennessee now looks like a completely different team. The Vols’ last eight wins have been decided by an average margin of 20.9 points. In their tournament opener, the Vols trailed Iowa most of the way before rallying for a 78-65 overtime victory that ended their season-long habit of losing close games. Tennessee followed that up with an 86-67 trouncing of Massachusetts and an 83-63 blowout of Mercer. Stokes has averaged 20.3 points and 15 rebounds in three tournament games. Richardson has scored

19.3 points per game in the tournament after averaging 9.2 points per game beforehand. Senior point guard Antonio Barton hasn’t committed a turnover in the tournament. Tennessee has outrebounded tournament foes by an average of 11 boards per game. “I do think it was nerves the first 10 minutes of that (Iowa) game, just (thinking), ‘Man, we are in the NCAA tournament,’” Martin said. “We didn’t flow right defensively. We lost assignments, and then once we settled down and especially got that thing in overtime, we started to play well, and we’ve been playing well ever Please see VOLS | 13A

NFL office can help refs with replays The Associated Press

ORLANDO, Fla.— The NFL officiating department will help referees rule on instant replay reviews starting next season. League owners passed a rule Tuesday allowing referees to consult with director of officiating Dean Blandino and his staff to help determine whether a call should be upheld or overturned. NFL officials said the change should speed up the process. Blandino and other staff will be monitoring the games from league offices in New York, and they will immedi-

ately begin reviewing challenges before the referee even gets to his monitor. They can make recommendations on what replays to look at, but the referee still will make the final decision. Rich McKay, Falcons president and co-chairman of the influential competition committee, called it “kind of a proof of concept to see how this works. We feel pretty comfortable with it, though.” “What we do like is we take the true experts in replay, those in New York, to be able to communicate with the referees who have the ultimate

decision,” McKay said. “We just think we get a more consistent decision-making process.” Blandino said the new process will be faster and make more eyes available to help in the reviews. “We’ll be reviewing all the angles the network is providing, in essence finding what is the best reviewable aspect, and getting a baseline for the referee,” he said. “Then we will begin the communication process with the referee once he is done speaking to the coach and announcing the challenge.

“Consistency is what we are striving for in officiating and this will definitely help us in that area.” One coach, Cincinnati’s Marvin Lewis, a member of the competition committee, believes the entire procedure has been upgraded. “By consulting with New York, they can speed up the review process while they talk to the referee,” Lewis said. “They can tell the referee: ‘Here are the shots all set for you to look at.’” Blandino wasn’t sure this Please see NFL | 13A

MLB hopes for new drug deal this week The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Baseball players and management hope to reach a new drug agreement this week that would increase initial penalties for muscle-building steroids and decrease suspensions for some positive tests caused by unintentional use, people familiar with the negotiations told The Associ-

ated Press. For future suspensions, the deal also would eliminate the loophole allowing Alex Rodriguez to earn almost $4 million during his season-long ban, the people said. They spoke on condition of anonymity in recent days because talks are ongoing. The sides hope to reach an agreement by Sunday, when

the Los Angeles Dodgers open the U.S. portion of the major league schedule at the San Diego Padres. While the lengths have not been finalized, the sides are discussing a 100-game ban for an initial testing violation and a season-long ban for a second, one of the people said. “It will be a significant de-

terrent because players will know they’re not going to just easily walk back into a lineup,” Travis Tygart, chief executive officer of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, said in a telephone interview Tuesday. “It probably is the best policy in professional sports.” For inadvertent use, the Please see MLB | 13A

Buffalo’s longtime owner Wilson dies at 95 The Associated Press

BUFFALO, N.Y. — During his 95 years, Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson went from fan to “Foolish Club” member to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, enjoying every step along the way. The NFL lost the person regarded as the league’s “conscience” on Tuesday, when Wilson died at his home around 1:40 p.m. Bills president Russ Brandon an-

nounced Wilson’s death at the NFL owners meetings in Orlando, Fla. His death resonated among the owners — from old to new. Wilson played an integral role in establishing the modern game, and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2009. In 1959, Wilson founded the Bills in helping establish the upstart American Football League, whose owners were dubbed “The Foolish Club”

for having the chutzpah to challenge the NFL. Some five years later, Wilson played an influential role in the framework for the merger of the leagues. “Ralph Wilson was a driving force in developing pro football into America’s most popular sport,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said. “Ralph always brought a principled and common-sense approach to issues.”

Patriots owner Robert Kraft released a statement saying how grateful he was for how Wilson welcomed him to the NFL, adding: “I will miss him.” So will Bills Hall of Fame coach Marv Levy, whom Wilson lured out of retirement to serve as the team’s general manager from 2005-06. “He wasn’t my boss, he was my friend,” Levy said. “Deeply saddened to hear about his passing.”

since.” The change in Tennessee’s fortunes has introduced a different side of Martin. For much of the season, fans grumbled on talk radio and message boards that Martin didn’t show enough emotion, particularly in comparison to the gregarious Pearl. But he’s let a little more of his personality show lately. Late in the regular season, Martin sang a few bars of “One Shining

Moment” while talking to reporters about how he played that song for his team to remind them the NCAA tournament remained within reach. And as Tennessee celebrated its victory over Mercer, Martin captured the moment by taking a selfie of the team and putting it on Twitter. Martin claimed he had never taken a selfie before someone brought up the idea Sunday night. “My daughter has taken 1,000 of them,” Martin said, “but not me.”


change would lead to more challenges, noting that coaches will still lose a timeout for an incorrect challenge. Players no longer will be allowed to dunk the football over the crossbar of the goalposts in celebration. Blandino said the NFL is making a clarification of the rules for mutual respect and sportsmanship. “We put a rule in several years ago about not using props on the football field: the football, the pylon,” he said. “This is just expanding upon that rule to include the crossbar of the goalpost. We had the situation with (Saints tight end) Jimmy Graham knocking the uprights off kilter last season and it delayed the game. “We have a potential rule change where we could raise the uprights, so you may have more issues with that if guys are dunking.” The owners also banned roll-up blocks to

the side of a player. In the past, the rule only barred such blocks from behind. “We saw some plays on tape that we just felt like we needed to expand that protection,” McKay said. Commissioner Roger Goodell believes small changes like that one, along with other recent rule changes, have made the game safer. “We went through that (data) in greater detail with the outside firm that’s been tracking that for us and it’s very clear that the rule changes we have made had the positive impact that we intended,” Goodell said Monday. “While there are some that say it has had a negative (impact) — as an example, ACL injuries being up — that’s not the case. What we’ve seen is that players have adjusted to the rules and they are finding that target zone and it is a safer, better game because of it.” A dozen other proposals for rules or bylaw changes were being considered by the owners.

penalty for a first testing violation would be cut in half to 25 games. “What we’re all here for it to rid sports of the intentional cheats, those who are intending to defraud both the fans and their fellow teammates, the integrity of competition,” Tygart said. “You want to have provisions in place that allow for whether there’s an inadvertent or a truly non-intentional situation which may arise.” Since the 2006 season, the Major League Baseball’s drug agreement has called for a 50-game suspension for a first positive steroids test, a 100game ban for a second and a lifetime penalty for a third. Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig called for tougher penalties last March, and then-union

head Michael Weiner said players would consider them for 2014. Weiner died in November and was succeeded by former All-Star Tony Clark, who has led the negotiations. Major League Baseball’s investigation of the Biogenesis of America anti-aging clinic led to 14 suspensions last summer, including a 65-game penalty for former NL MVP Ryan Braun of Milwaukee and a 211-game ban for Rodriguez, which was reduced to 162 games in January by an arbitrator. The section covering violations not related to positive tests, which was used by Selig in the Biogenesis case, will be clarified but still will allow discipline for “just cause.” Many players have advocated stiffer penalties as a deterrent.

Single mom experiences dating woes WIZARD OF ID





Dear Annie: I am a young single mom. The father and I are not together. I am lonely at times without a man in my life, but I don’t know how to approach men and have no idea how to bring up the fact that I have a son. I promised myself that I would not bring a guy into my son’s life until I’ve been seeing him for at least a year and the relationship is serious. In the meantime, I feel awkward about the situation and don’t know how to behave. Any suggestions? — S. Dear S.: You are smart not to bring random men into your child’s life, but please don’t be in a hurry to get attached. It’s more important that you devote some time to yourself, figuring out what you need and want in life. Let your friends and family members know you are interested in meeting people. Get involved in activities that will allow you to become friendly with others in pressure-free circumstances — through work, church, community projects, volunteer work, choirs, theater groups, civic organizations, political groups, etc. Also, consider join-

Annie’s Mailbox ing Parents Without Partners (parentswithoutpartners. org). Doing interesting things will make you more interesting to be around. Female friends can introduce you to their single male friends or relatives. And, as you get to know others, the fact that you have a child will come up naturally. Dear Annie: I am frequently amazed by how many people fail to realize the unnecessary but real danger they put themselves in by not knowing a simple rule that I clearly remember learning in third grade: If you ride a bicycle on a road, stay on the right side to flow with traffic. If you are walking on a road, stay on the left side, facing traffic. This week, I saw two women walking on the right side of a two-lane highway with their backs to speeding traffic. I pulled over and explained to them that they were one distracted driver away from a coroner. They never would have seen it coming. I once saw three women with baby carriages walking abreast

the same way. If they are facing traffic, they can move over if a driver doesn’t seem to be giving them enough room. And they should get off the road anyway. Likewise, bicyclists coming directly at oncoming traffic leave a driver no opportunity to slow down until it is safe to go around. If you print this, I believe a lot of people will recognize themselves and make this simple lifesaving adjustment. — Concerned for the Clueless in N.Y. Dear N.Y.: Bicyclists must obey all traffic laws, which means they need to face the same direction as the traffic. Pedestrians should face the opposite way so they can see what’s coming toward them and get out of the way. Needless to say, no one should walk on a roadway unless absolutely necessary. Let’s hope your simple reminder saves a life or two. Thank you. Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Obama expresses concern for Russiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ukraine advance The Associated Press

THE HAGUE, Netherlands â&#x20AC;&#x201D; With no sign of Russia abandoning the Crimean Peninsula, President Barack Obama said Tuesday heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concerned that Moscow will move deeper into Ukraine and warned Russian President Vladimir Putin that the international community is prepared to impose punishing sanctions against his countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy. Obama stood fast on his insistence that Crimea remains a part of Ukraine, even as the fledgling Ukrainian government in Kiev ordered its troops to pull back from the disputed territory. He dismissed Russia as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;regional powerâ&#x20AC;? that was acting from a position of weakness. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not recognizing what is happening in Crimea,â&#x20AC;? Obama said at his first news conference since Russia annexed Crimea after a referendum 10 days ago. Obama rejected â&#x20AC;&#x153;the notion that a referendum sloppily organized over the course of two weeksâ&#x20AC;? would â&#x20AC;&#x153;somehow be a valid process.â&#x20AC;? Obama said that while Russiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s military controls Crimea, its acquisition of the Black Sea peninsula is â&#x20AC;&#x153;not a done dealâ&#x20AC;? without international recognition. But he also said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would be dishonest to suggest there is a simple solution to what has already taken place in Crimea.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We also are concerned about further encroachment by Russia into Ukraine,â&#x20AC;? Obama said, as he took questions in a joint appearance with his host, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that will be a bad choice for President Putin to make,â&#x20AC;? Obama said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But ultimately he is the president of Russia,

and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the one whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be making that decision.â&#x20AC;? Obama was pursuing efforts to pressure Russia out of its aggressive pose as world leaders met for an international Nuclear Security Summit. But to the east, the Russian annexation of Crimea was beginning to take root and Moscow shrugged off Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drive to leave Putin in the cold. Rutte said he could not envision the crisis over Ukraine ending in a military conflict. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think that is likely. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think anybody wants it,â&#x20AC;? the Dutch prime minister said as he stood next to Obama. Rutte added that the West retains the option to impose more sanctions on Russia if the standoff escalates, and he said â&#x20AC;&#x153;these sanctions would hit Russia very badly.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;And obviously, you can never guarantee that the people in Europe, in Canada, in the U.S. would not be hurt,â&#x20AC;? the prime minister said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But obviously, we will make sure that we will design these sanctions in such a way that they will have maximum impact on the Russian economy and not on the European, the Canadian, the Japanese or the American economy.â&#x20AC;? Obama also said he was concerned about Russiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s troop build-up along the Ukrainian border. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We oppose what appears to be an effort at intimidation,â&#x20AC;? Obama said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But Russia has a right legally to have its troops on its own soil.â&#x20AC;? Asked whether in hindsight he agrees with Republican presidential challenger Mitt Romneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assessment that Russia is the United Statesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; top geopolitical foe, Obama

said he is more concerned about a nuclear bomb in Manhattan than he is about Russiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actions threatening national security. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a whole lot of challenges,â&#x20AC;? Obama said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Russia is a regional power that is threatening some of its immediate neighbors, not out of strength but out of weakness.â&#x20AC;? The U.S. and some of its closest allies cut Russia out indefinitely from an exclusive coalition of leading industrial nations and canceled a summer summit Russia was to host in its Olympic village of Sochi. Obama also sought to win backing from other foreign leaders in hopes of ostracizing or even shaming Putin into reversing his acquisition of Crimea and backing away from any designs he might have on other territory in Eastern Europe. In a strongly worded joint statement, the United States, France, Canada, Britain, Germany, Italy and Japan denounced the referendum in Crimea to secede from Ukraine and Russiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ensuing annexation. In so doing, the seven leaders also effectively excluded Russia from what had been a two-decade-old coalition known as the Group of Eight. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This clear violation of international law is a serious challenge to the rule of law around the world and should be a concern for all nations,â&#x20AC;? the declaration said. Still, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov shrugged off the international gestures. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The G-8 is an informal club,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has no membership tickets, and it canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t purge anyone by definition.â&#x20AC;?
