Sign-ups open for Coke run Business caught up

in zoning quandary


Runners finally have some encouraging weather to hit the pavement. With temps rising to the 70s many running enthusiasts are getting ready for the 33rd Annual Corinth Coca-Cola Classic 10K. The annual run through downtown Corinth hits the streets at 8:30 a.m. on May 3. “We are a little behind because of the weather,” said race co-coordinator Amy Smith of registration. “It should get better this week with the forecast calling for plenty of sunshine.” As of Tuesday morning, 383 have signed up for the annual race. Last year’s edition was a historic one for organizers. For the first time in the history of the race, a cap was placed on the family-friendly event. Registration was closed almost two days prior to the race after it reached the 1,500 mark. Please see 10K | 5A

FARMINGTON — The City of Farmington is sharing facts residents need to be aware of in regards to their sewer bills. It is important to remember sewer bills are separate from water bills.

Sewer bill totals are based on water reading data provided by the Farmington Water Association which is why the sewer bill comes one month after the water bill. To illustrate, here is a sample Please see SEWER | 3A

Walk for Life supports Oasis Medical Center BY KIMBERLY SHELTON

It was a sunny yet chilly day as participants gathered at Crossroads Regional Park to walk for a cause. Oasis Medical Center’s 20th Annual Walk for Life proved to be quite successful as both local and out-of-town walkers showed up to support the center’s efforts. “If they can’t be here today, they walk wherever they are,” said Executive Director Martha Jobe. “We even have a group walking for us in South Carolina.” Since 1995, OMC’s second largest annual fundraiser has drawn approximately 200 volunteers each year. Some walk as individuals while others choose to walk in teams of 2 to 8 people. They are sponsored by local churches, youth groups, civic clubs, and

businesses. The money from the charity event will help the Oasis Center provide medical services for a six-county area. Registration for the event began at 8:30 a.m. with walkers lining up to turn in sponsor ads. Those who earned $200 or more in sponsors were given the choice of a free “respect for life” t-shirt, sporty water bottle or bistro mug. Jobe welcomed everyone to the event, thanking them for all their hard work and contributions. She also gave thanks to the man upstairs. “I just want to praise God for every life and every soul that has been saved through Oasis,” she said as a gusty wind blew through the pavilion scattering papers and writing utensils. Joe and Pam Kushner spoke

about what the center has done for them and how much it has impacted their lives. “Moving to Corinth was such a blessing,” said Joe as he and his wife embraced their three children, Jake, Karson and little Bella. “Local medical doctors were able to help us with our fertility issues and we had Karson ... and thanks to the Oasis Medical Center, Bella’s birth mom chose life.” Pam approached the podium, reciting John 15:5. “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” “Bella is the fruit of what Oasis has done,” said Pam as she held her three-year-old daughter. I had the opportunity to visit with

Today in history Today is Sunday, April 6, the 96th day of 2014. There are 269 days left in the year. Â

Today’s Highlight in History: On April 6, 1994, the Hutu president of Rwanda, Juvenal Habyarimana, was killed along with the president of Burundi, Cyprien Ntaryamira, when their plane was apparently shot down near the Rwandan capital of Kigali; what followed was a 100-day genocide in Rwanda during which more than 500,000 minority Tutsis and moderate members of the Hutu majority were killed by Hutu extremists. Â

On this date: In 1830, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was organized by Joseph Smith in Fayette, N.Y.

In 1896, the first modern Olympic games formally opened in Athens, Greece. In 1909, American explorers Robert E. Peary and Matthew A. Henson and four Inuits became the first men to reach the North Pole. In 1917, Congress approved a declaration of war against Germany. In 1943, “Le Petit Prince� (The Little Prince) by Antoine de Saint-Exupery was first published by Reynal & Hitchcock of New York. In 1954, a month after being criticized by newsman Edward R. Murrow on CBS’ “See It Now,� Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy, R-Wis., given the chance to respond on the program, charged that Murrow had, in the past, “engaged in propaganda for Communist causes.� In 1963, the United States signed an agreement to sell the Polaris missile system to Britain. In 1974, Swedish pop group ABBA won the Eurovision Song Contest held in Brighton, England, with a performance of the song “Waterloo.� In 1988, Tirza Porat, a 15-year-old Israeli girl, was killed in a West Bank melee.

Silent auction Peggy Howie and Fran Howie Seago look over paintings up for bid Saturday during the silent auction benefiting the Corinth Artist Guild Gallery. The auction was held in the garage of the home of Charlie and Beverly Gooch as part of the sixth annual Corinth Home and Garden Tour, which drew a big crowd of residents and visitors out to get a look at several unique local residences.


scenario: January 1 – A customer paid their sewer deposit and moved into a new residence. They will use water the entire month of January. February – The water meter will be read by Farmington Water and the customer will receive their first water bill. The readings will then be transferred to the City of Farmington. March – Customers receive their first sewer bill. The sewer bill they receive in March reflects January’s responsibility.

The Farmington sewer was installed in 2004. Sewer bills are mailed out by the 5th of the month. There is only one billing cycle. So, customers who rely on a monthly check should keep that in mind and make necessary preparations. A payment drop box is located at City Hall next to the front doors. For convenience, bank draft is also available. All returned checks and bank drafts will result in a $40 serve charge. After a third returned item, cash, money order, or cashier’s check will only be accepted for one year

after. “If you move, please notify Farmington City Hall of your new address. Your deposit will be applied to your final bill once the final meter reading is received from Farmington Water Association. Any remaining deposit will be refunded to you and mailed to the forwarding address given,� said Mayor of Farmington Dale Fortendale. Residents should note rates and polices are set by the Farmington Board of Alderman and are subject to change at any time.

Our View

Salute our unsung heroes this week They are our unsung heroes. These people are nameless. They have no face. The men and women are a voice on the other end of the phone. Hanging in the balance is a life or death situation. It’s one of the most important jobs in our community. They all deserve our thanks and a pat on the back. They are the dispatchers for Alcorn County E911. “We are the hidden heroes,” Alcorn County E911 Director Kim McCreless recently told the Daily Corinthian. “A dispatcher has to be very caring and make a lot of sacrifices.” So true. 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 Telecommunications Week is set for today through Saturday around the country to honor those in the emergency communications field. Close to 70 local businesses have stepped up to make the week a special one for the 11 local full-time and four part-time dispatchers. The department also has a full-time and part-time secretary. 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 when originally introduced in Congress in 1991 was National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week. The Congressional resolution also stated there were more than “500,000 telecommunications specialists,” although other estimates put the number of dispatchers at just over 200,000. We thank Kim McCreless for her 19 years of dedication to E911 and the people they serve. We also thank all our local dispatchers for the job they do. This is a week they should be in our thoughts -- without having an emergency to reach out to them. Daily Corinthian

Medicaid decision hurts hospitals Mississippi’s decision to opt out of the Medicaid expansion is hurting the state’s hospitals the most in the medical community. The state’s physicians, at least those not employed by hospitals, are not all that moved since many of them are not too keen on Medicaid due to its low reimbursement rate. According to a recent survey conducted by Mississippi State University, 53 percent of the state’s primary care physicians are not accepting new Medicaid patients. The number is a bit better with specialists, but still high: About 40 percent of obstetricians and pediatricians are not taking new Medicaid patients. Observers say they don’t blame the doctors, since the government insurance program doesn’t pay what it costs to treat the patient, imposes lots of red tape and is slow to cut reimbursement checks. Hospitals, though, don’t have the discretion that physicians do. The hospitals by federal law have to treat everyone who walks into their doors, including those who can’t pay for the services. For the hospitals, it’s a lot better to get a Medicaid reimbursement, even below cost, than nothing. According to the American Hospital Association, on average a U.S. hospital receives 89 cents in reimbursement from Medicaid for every dollar of treatment. Although an 11 percent loss is not ideal, it’s better than a 100 percent loss. In the past, hospitals with a large amount of uncompensated care would receive subsidies from the federal government to partially offset it. These subsidies, though, are being slashed to help pay for the Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare. Thus, Mississippi hospitals — if the Republican leadership continues to stubbornly oppose extending coverage to the working poor — are being hit with a double whammy: fewer subsidies and no additional Medicaid dollars. If something doesn’t give, the smaller, more rural hospitals in Mississippi may not be able to keep their doors open, and every hospital in this state will be pinched. So far, Gov. Phil Bryant and GOP legislative leaders are less worried about that than they are about getting crosswise with the tea party faction that’s against anything and everything associated with President Barack Obama. The Greenwood Commonwealth

Thompson’s kingmaker role familiar STARKVILLE — At first, it was only black Democratic Party candidates in the Delta who sought the favor of Mississippi’s first legitimate African-American political kingmaker. Then, as his stranglehold on his congressional seat grew and strengthened, black politicians across Mississippi sought his support. Today, any Democrat who wants to run credible statewide race not only wants his support, they need it. And during President Barack Obama’s two terms in the White House, the federal patronage path in Mississippi increasingly ran through his office. Second District U.S. Rep. Bennie Thompson, DBolton, the senior Democratic official in the state’s congressional delegation – and in recent years, the only one – has emerged as a political kingmaker the likes of which hasn’t been seen since the days of the late “Big Jim” Eastland. Back in 2008, political science scholar Marty Wiseman and I were on a panel together in Jackson and the

question of Thompson’s growing influence came up. Wiseman said then: “I hesitate to call him the Sid Salter ‘Jim Eastland Columnist of the New Millennium,’ but he is definitely a presence in the Delta when it comes to electoral politics. It says a lot about Thompson’s emergence as a power-broker and a leader in the Democratic Party.” Six years later, Thompson’s endorsement is sought by Democrats not merely in federal elections or statewide elections, but in local races as well. Thompson is a shrewd and disciplined politician. He is also not afraid to play hardball with white Democrats who court the state’s African-American vote but then fail to reciprocate that support when AfricanAmerican candidates are standing for election. And if Thompson engages Mississippi Democrats in a significant way, what about

the state’s Republicans? Few politicians are a more reliable political lightning rod for conservatives than Thompson. He is an unapologetic liberal who is pro-labor in a “right-towork” state and who is a proud national Democrat in a state where many in his party hide behind the label of “Mississippi Democrats.” Thompson supports abortion rights in a state when that stance will beat most every other politician in a state of federal election. It’s interesting that Thompson can generate so much passionate opposition for playing the game of politics in 2014 much the way Eastland played it in the 1960s and 1970s in the same political party. But more than that is the fact that state Republicans know that Thompson is unintentionally a strategic help to the current 3-1 split the GOP maintains in the state’s four U.S. House districts. Thompson has fought to keep black voting age population or BVAP high in the Second District to protect his political base. The de-

mographic shifts necessary to make that political math work conversely serves to protect the conservative Republican majorities enjoyed by Republican U.S. Reps. Alan Nunnelee, Gregg Harper and Steven Palazzo in their districts. Suffice to say that Congressman Thompson’s 2014 election night stress level will be somewhere south of that of the vaunted Maytag repair man. He has marginal, unfunded opposition in the Democratic Primary and faces two unfunded unknown candidates in the general election. With $1.346 million in his campaign coffers, Thompson is going to win re-election handily. A key test of Thompson’s political reach will come in the special election in Jackson to choose a successor to Lumumba. Thompson is supporting Jackson City Councilman Melvin Priester Jr., the son of one of the congressman’s closest political allies. Sid Salter is a syndicated columnist. Contact him at 601-507-8004 or

Purveyors of dependency must be stopped Divide and conquer is an age-old strategy, effectively used by many in positions of power to ensure that they retain their wealth and authority. During the dark days of slavery in America, there were many geographic areas where the number of slaves significantly surpassed the number of whites and slave owners. This occasioned appropriate anxiety for the owners, who cleverly sowed seeds of discord among the different groups of slaves in an attempt to effectively destroy unity. For example, field slaves were told that the house slaves thought of themselves as superior. This worked in most cases, although there were notable instances of secret cooperation between the slaves to accomplish various goals. It required real wisdom and insight to avoid easy manipulation by the slave owners, who usually used slaves loyal to them to accomplish their nefarious objectives. In today’s culture, there are political forces that see the descendants of slaves as useful objects for maintain-

ing their positions of wealth and power. By promising to care for their every need, they create dependency. Frightening those dependents into thinking Ben they will be Carson abandoned if others are in Columnist control, they create loyalty that is undeserved but fierce, loyalty that translates into the real goal: votes. Anything or anyone that threatens this paradigm of victim and protector must be destroyed, lest the victims recognize the deceitfulness of their manipulators and revolt. The most dangerous people to the modern manipulators are people who have freed themselves from the plantation mentality. They eschew the propaganda of victimhood and advocate for personal responsibility. They see the value found in the true compassion of a hand up rather than a handout. Those who spew ven-

om at black conservatives would do well to read about the lives and philosophies of such luminaries as Booker T. Washington, George Washington Carver, Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman and many others who refused to subscribe to the victim mentality. They should make an attempt to understand what it takes to ascend from the lifestyle of Southern sharecroppers to the office of secretary of state of the United States of America. Perhaps then they would rally to the side of Condoleezza Rice, who achieved this and much more including becoming a concert pianist. When the black community tolerates a group of liberal Rutgers professors who succeeded in disinviting Rice to their commencement because she is a black conservative, they embolden the controlling elites and dramatically minimize accomplishments that any ethnic group should be proud of. We must fight for the precious hearts and souls of all of our young people. We have to give them the “can-

do” attitude that characterized the rapid ascension of America. We must defang the dividers by thinking for ourselves. I wish the haters and manipulators would take a moment to examine their hearts and motives. I hope they will think about using their intellectual talents for good. Let us all give honor to the concepts of hard work, integrity, kindness, compassion, personal responsibility, family values, and faith in and obedience to God. Many people from all backgrounds gave up their freedom, their blood and even their lives to provide a life of liberty and dignity for those trapped by the chains of legal discrimination and hatred. We must not allow their sacrifice to become meaningless by allowing “do-gooders” to substitute the chains of overt racism with the chains of dependency, low expectations, victimhood and misdirected anger. Ben S. Carson is professor emeritus of neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins University.

Car flips into Queens creek, killing four NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A car heading down a darkened dead-end street in a desolate industrial area hit a curb and flipped into a creek, killing four passengers, police said Saturday. The driver escaped serious injury and told officers at the scene in the Astoria section of Queens

that the four were trapped in the submerged car. Police said the 2009 Honda Accord tumbled into Steinway Creek, an inlet off the East River, just after 10:30 p.m. Friday.

Some victims of the slide that killed at least 30 people northeast of Seattle last month said they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know about the danger and are interested in suing. Such cases can be tough to win. Generally, municipalities in Washington state are not liable for landslide damages except in narrow circumstances.

Fort Hood victim leaves hospital MCCOMB â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A Mississippi soldier who was shot at Fort Hood is under home care at the Texas base. Renee Westbrook says her husband, 32-year-old Sgt. Jonathan Westbrook, was shot several times. She and members of Westbrookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family say he was released earlier this week. Westbrookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father, Theodis Westbrook, says his son was among the first people shot by a gunman who killed three people and wounded 16 before killing himself on Wednesday. Lt. Gen. Mark Milley, Fort Hoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commander, says an argument sparked the attacks. He wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say what it was about but says investigators donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think Lopez targeted individual soldiers. Chris Grey is a spokesman for the Armyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Criminal Investiga-

Man to serve time for insurance fraud

GREENWOOD â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Longtime Circuit Judge Betty Sanders will not seek a sixth term in November. Sanders has sent on the bench in the Fourth Circuit District comprise of Sunflower, Leflore and Washington counties for 25 years. Sunflower County Public Defender Carol L. White-Richard announced this week her intention to seek election to the post being vacated by Sanders. The candidate qualifying deadline is May 9. Sandersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first five years on the bench were as a special magistrate judge, a position she held until being elected circuit judge in 1994. Sanders was one of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pioneers in establishing drug courts as an alternative to incarceration.

JACKSON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood says a 28-year-old Pontotoc County man will serve at least a year in prison after filing an insurance claim for a nonexistent four-wheeler accident. He says in a news release that Eric Long of Randolph pleaded guilty Friday to one count of insurance fraud. Hood says Judge James Robert suspended a three-year prison term for Long, who filed the bogus claim while on probation in an unrelated case. Hood says the judge revoked one year of that probation, so Long will spend a year in prison. The judge also ordered Long to pay a $1,000 fine plus

106 West College Street, Booneville, MS

banquet type facility next to her photography studio at 2103 Highway 72 East. It would host receptions and activities in conjunction with the photography business, and the facility would require a commercial sprinkler. But the property is serviced by the Alcorn Water Association, and the rural system does not provide adequate water pressure for the operation of a commercial sprinkler. It is â&#x20AC;&#x153;a unique problem that is not of her own making,â&#x20AC;? said attorney Bill Davis, addressing the city board on behalf of Bradley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She finds herself in the position of being a city taxpayer inside the city limits under the auspices of having the building code apply to her but unable to comply with the code for the reason that the tools necessary to comply havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been given to her,â&#x20AC;? he said. Davis quoted from the annexation ordinance adopted in 1993, which said the city would make certain improvements in the annexed areas within five years. The ordinance said the city would â&#x20AC;&#x153;acquire, interconnect and upgrade certificated water utility systems now serving annexed customers as necessary, legally possible and financially feasible; develop, extend and expand the municipal water utility systems as warranted by development of the area served so as to provide an adequate water supply for fire fighting purposes â&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;? The building code â&#x20AC;&#x153;presupposes city waterâ&#x20AC;? is available, he said. The attorney said the intent is not to point fingers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure there are legitimate reasons for notâ&#x20AC;? extending water to this property, said Davis, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but it does lay the groundwork for what her predicament is â&#x20AC;Ś If the city had extended the water lines as it was said in the ordinance that it was going to do, we wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be here.â&#x20AC;? He suggested the board either exempt Bradley from the sprinkler requirement, allow her to instead install a residential-grade sprinkler or extend city water to the property. The latter would require the Alcorn Water Association to relinquish its service rights to the property â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which Bradley said the association is willing to do â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but she said Corinth Gas & Water has indicated they could not service the property because of the expense and other reasons. Davis said there are obstacles in getting to the property including a creek and the Kimberly Clark Parkway. A different route to the property would require boring under the highway. The issue previously led to a lengthy discussion before the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board of adjustment/ planning commission. Lee Thurner, a member of that advisory body, said he reluctantly made the motion to recommend denial of the variance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It seems to me that the city here is derelict,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It annexed the property 20 years ago with the promise that city utilities would be extended to this property, and they never have.â&#x20AC;? He suggested de-annexing the property, thus taking it out from under the city building code requirements, might be the best solution. Davis said Bradley is open to that possibility. City Attorney Wendell Trapp said the city is providing fire protection to the property, and a couple of board members indicated they are not inclined to make a zoning exception on a safety matter. However, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ms. Bradley should have the same opportunities in a zoned areas as anyone else has,â&#x20AC;? said Ward 3 Alderman Chip Wood. The board tabled the discussion with plans to get input from Corinth Gas & Water.

Skinner named employee of the month TUPELO — Shawn Skinner, cardiology registry assistant/data analyst at the Heart Institute, was named Employee of the Month for February at North Mississippi Medical Center. Skinner joined NMMC in September 2004. He is a graduate of McNairy Central High School in Selmer, Tenn. Skinner has held multiple jobs at the Heart Institute including monitor tech, unit coordinator and cardiovascular/cardiac case manager assistant. Coworkers complimented Skinner’s demeanor and work ethic.

Skinner “Shawn is very smart and goes beyond his duty,” a coworker wrote in her nomination. “(Shawn) is a family oriented person; he makes

himself available for neighbors and others in his community that need help. He is a very compassionate person.” “As someone who has worked with Shawn since he came from the nursing floor, I have seen him grow into his position by leaps and bounds,” another coworker wrote. “(Shawn) took the role of a secretary of Heart Institute Registry Department, learned the ins and outs, and created his own position into what it is today - Cardiology Registry Assistant. His work speaks for itself.” Skinner praised his co-

workers at the Heart Institute when listing the things he likes most about his job. “The best part of my job is getting to work with some great people who care about the patients, their care and wellbeing,” Skinner said. “My thanks to Alice McAnally for giving me a chance when she hired me as a monitor tech. As I look back on the nine plus years, it’s amazing how many people have touched me, not only with their knowledge, but friendship as well.” Skinner is a native of Corinth.

Better weather may have lifted job growth in March BY CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Hiring went into a deep freeze this winter as harsh weather slowed the economy. A warmer March has raised a key question for Friday’s monthly jobs report: Did hiring rebound in March along with the temperatures? Most economists think it did. But some of the pickup in hiring will likely reflect a temporary bounceback from the cold winter months. It may not be

immediately clear how much of the job growth will endure. Analysts forecast that employers added 195,000 jobs last month, according to a survey by FactSet. That would be the highest total in four months and up from 175,000 in February. The unemployment rate is predicted to fall to 6.6 percent from 6.7 percent in February. Low temperatures and heavy snowstorms this winter closed factories, interrupted work at construction sites and kept consumers away from

shopping malls. Hiring fell to an average of 129,000 jobs a month from December through February. That was sharply lower than the average of 225,000 in the previous three months. Some economists project that a much larger job gain took place last month. That’s largely because they think some hiring was delayed until March by the cold weather in January and February, thereby boosting March’s job growth. Drew Matus, an economist at UBS, predicts that employers added 250,000 jobs last month, though he thinks 50,000 to 75,000 of that total will reflect delayed hiring from previous months. “There’s more uncertainty around this number than usual,” Matus said. Leaving aside the weather effect, economists generally expect hiring to average about 200,000

Most recent economic data suggest that the economy is picking up from the winter freeze. Auto sales jumped 6 percent last month to 1.5 million, the most since November. That was a sign that Americans remain willing to spend on big purchases. And surveys by the Institute for Supply Management, a group of purchasing managers, showed that both manufacturing and service companies expanded at a faster pace in March. Factories cranked out more goods and received slightly more orders, a good sign for future production. Manufacturers added jobs, the ISM found, though at a slower pace than in February. But service firms, including hotels, restaurants, retailers and financial companies, sharply ramped up hiring in March. That mostly reversed a steep fall the previous month. The number of Americans seeking unemployment aid rose last week but remained close to pre-recession levels. The four-week average of applications, a less volatile measure, stayed near a six-month low.

Wife is hurt over being ignored by husband’s dad DEAR ABBY: I have been married to my wonderful husband for 10 years. My fatheri n - l a w, “John,” has always been a man of extremely few words with me. He mostly just ignores Abigail me when Van Buren I’m around. I have mentioned it to Dear Abby my husband and motherin-law over the years, and they say he’s just “weird.” Last year, my brother-inlaw married a nice woman, “Donna.” It turns out that John talks just fine with her. He’s not overly chatty, but he’s friendly and polite. They had a 20-minute conversation on Christmas Eve, and I don’t remember ever exchanging more than three sentences with the man. I’m naturally sociable and easygoing, and I don’t know why John would treat me so rudely for so long. Of course, I’m jealous. I would trade the father-in-law I have had for the one Donna has in a heartbeat. I’m so hurt and angry that I find it difficult

to be in the same room with him now. I am seeing a therapist, which helps, but I’m still not sure how to get over this or how to proceed. Can you offer me some advice? — LIKE I’M NOT HERE DEAR LIKE: I’ll try. There could be any number of reasons why your father-in-law has been unable to connect with you, and I can think of at least one that might have nothing to do with you. Has it occurred to you that this may have something to do with the way he feels about your husband? Sometimes the negative feelings a parent has toward a child can spill over onto the spouse. That might explain his warmer attitude toward your sister-in-law. However, if that’s not the case, then you will have to accept that people don’t always have the same level of chemistry with everyone — and your father-in-law isn’t being intentionally hurtful. I have experienced this, and if you think about it, I’m sure you probably have, too. I’m glad you’re seeing a therapist, although I hope the reason isn’t your father-in-law. If being around him is uncomfortable for you, then limit the time you spend with your in-

laws. That’s what I’d do. DEAR ABBY: Over the past 35 years I have saved all the cards, letters and photographs sent to me by friends. I thought it would be fun to make them into scrapbooks and give them back to those friends one day. Now that I finally have the time to organize them all, I’m not so sure. They are preFacebook. There are lots of letters about their pregnancies, birth announcements, child-rearing experiences and holiday letters. Can you ask your readers if they would welcome something like this or should I toss them all? It’s time to clean house. — UNSURE IN THE WEST DEAR UNSURE: I’ll put the question out there, but the people who really should answer are the friends for whom you’re thinking of creating those scrapbooks. Speaking for myself, I think they would be priceless gifts, but I can’t answer for everyone. (Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.)

Horoscopes ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll have the realization that someone you admire is not very different from you, and in fact, you may have more talent and ability in a certain area than this person does. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). However refined your tastes may become, there is still a rabble-rouser inside you who will emerge among kindred spirits. Expect that you’ll get caught up in the riotous fun, and plan for that. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You will be in the mood to argue, but not necessarily to argue your own side. You appreciate the game of making a case for different points of view and will learn through this kind of play. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re not a natural self-promoter, but when you sense that people really need what only you can offer, telling them seems like the only kind thing to do. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll get an opportunity to

spend time with someone you ideally would like to see more often. Restraint will be key. If you want a second meeting, don’t bring everything you have to the first one. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Of course you are more likely to be taken by surprise when you are engaged in a task with which you have very little experience. You’ll rather enjoy the excitement, so seeking new endeavors is favored. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Someone you mentor is growing up fast and making you very proud in the process. Tonight, ask for what you need. Being direct is not only effective; it’s also the only thing that will work. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Use kind, gentle words, but speak them firmly and with confidence. It is more powerful to be calm, gentle and clear than it is to be passionate and unclear. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You officially have analyzed a situation

to death, and the only thing left to do is follow your gut. You don’t need a reason why now, because “why not?” is the best reason there is now. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). Love has many incarnations, and you experience a wide range of them within one relationship. There is much to be gained from an easy-going attitude. Love and freedom go handin-hand now. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your influence will be strongest when it is wordless. Leading silently and by example has real power. It takes a confident person to do this. Note: Experience is one way to gain confidence, but it’s not the only way. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The person who is not saying “yes” is saying “no.” This is hard for some people to understand because they equate “no” with rejection. You wisely translate “no” into “my winning path lies elsewhere.”

Stewart leads pack for AP’s top player BY DOUG FEINBERG AP Basketball Writer

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Breanna Stewart picked up right where she left off as a freshman with a stellar sophomore year. UConn’s 6-foot-4 sensational star earned The Associated Press Player of the Year award Saturday, becoming just the third sophomore to achieve the honor. Notre Dame’s Muffet McGraw was selected coach of the year for the second straight season. Stewart, a unanimous All-American, got 20 votes from the 36-member national media panel that selects the weekly Top 25. Stanford’s Chiney Ogwumike received eight votes while Baylor’s Odyssey Sims had six. Kayla McBride of Notre Dame received the other two votes. Stewart joined former UConn star Maya Moore and Oklahoma’s Courtney Paris as the only sophomores to win the award. Steward helped the Huskies win the national championship as a freshman and has been a major reason why the Huskies are undefeated this season. Like UConn, McGraw’s Irish squad hasn’t lost either, winning their first 36 games this season. “I just think she grew up,” UConn coach Geno Auriemma said of his young star. “She’s a year older it’s not easy to be that good when you’re that young and haven’t played a lot of college basketball. She has year’s more experience as to what it takes to go through a college basketball season and knowing her, I think she is going to get better and better each day each week and each month. I’m really happy for her.” McGraw is only the second coach ever to win the award in consecutive years, joining Auriemma. West Virginia’s Mike Carey was second with eight votes. Auriemma was third and South Carolina’s Dawn Staley was fourth. McGraw also was honored with the award in 2001. “She has been the consistent piece at Notre Dame,” McBride said, “and is a big reason why we are where we are.” Even McGraw, who is in her 27th season at the school, was surprised at the success her team has had this season. Joining a new conference and graduating Skylar Diggins left a few questions for Notre Dame. With McGraw at the helm, they answered every one of them. “Going undefeated was not on the top of our goals for the season with what we lost,” said the 58-year-old McGraw. “We had a lot of good pieces back, but we lost Skylar. It wasn’t until we had the road wins over Tennessee, Maryland and Duke that I thought, wow we could have something really special here.” With four starters back, including Stewart, UConn was a heavy preseason favorite to defend its title.

Kentucky edges Wisconsin BY DAVE SKRETTA Associated Press

ARLINGTON, Texas — Kentucky’s James Young kept his fellow freshmen in the game, his grit on defense only overshadowed by his scoring spurts that answered every salvo from Wisconsin. Turns out that Kentucky coach John Calipari wants even more from the often overshadowed Young. After scoring a game-high 17 points in the Wildcats’ 74-73 victory Saturday night and sending Big Blue Nation through to a national title showdown with Connecticut, Young could only force a tight smile when Calipari made the boldest of forecasts. “James Young has had 25-point games, which I’ll

predict he’ll have in this Monday night’s game,” Calipari said, tilting his head and gazing down the long table at his young forward. “You listening to me?” Calipari asked. “I’m putting a positive seed in your mind right now.” The headlines will go to those unflappable Harrison twins, Andrew who passed to his brother Aaron for the 3-pointer with 5.7 seconds left that proved to be the difference. But both of them owe Young a considerable debt of gratitude for giving them that chance. He scored nine of his points in the first half of the semifinal, when nothing seemed to be going right, and then jumpstarted the second-half

run that forced the game down to the wire. And gave those Harrisons a chance to win it. “Aaron hit another big shot for us,” Young said. “He saw his man play off him a little bit, and he just took it. He’s been taking all our big shots for us.” When the Badgers’ Traevon Jackson missed a jumper at the buzzer, and the Wildcats’ Marcus Lee corralled the ball off the backboard, it was Young who led the charge to engulf Aaron Harrison at midcourt. He was right in the midst of a happy scrum that made a team full of teenagers — Young is one of five freshman starters — look like giddy schoolchildren. “Really, I was just trying to

bring a lot of energy to the defense end,” Young said with a smile, “slapping the ground and trying to pick us up.” Eighth-seeded Kentucky (29-10), which caught fire during the SEC tournament and has kept up the run throughout March Madness, will play seventh-seeded UConn in a surprising title game. The Huskies beat overall No. 1 seed Florida 63-53 earlier in the night. Now they’ll face the preseason No. 1 Wildcats, who fell out of the rankings later in the year, but have saved their best play for the postseason. “We play seven freshmen, folks,” Calipari said, “and Please see WILDCATS | 11A

UConn ends Florida’s 30-game run BY JIM O’CONNELL Associated Press

ARLINGTON, Texas — Shabazz Napier looked up toward the Connecticut fans in the crowd at AT&T Stadium and held up one finger. The Huskies had just beaten overall No. 1 seed Florida 63-53 on Saturday in the Final Four. But Napier’s gesture had another meaning. “One more to go,” the firstteam All-American said. The victory got them into Monday night’s title game against Kentucky and it was as good an effort as any team

came up with this season against the Gators, who came in having won 30 straight games, a streak that started after a loss to the Huskies four months ago. “We have been in a lot of dog fights,” Napier said. “We are just an experienced group. We believe in each other and continue to believe in each other. ... We are going to win. That is what we do.” Especially against Florida. The Gators lost only three times this season — once to Wisconsin in the second game of the season and twice

to the Huskies. The first time was on Dec. 2 when a foulline jumper at the buzzer by Napier gave U Conn a 65-64 victory. They didn’t have to wait that long to know they had this one. The Huskies, the seventh seed in the East Regional, will meet Kentucky, the eighth seed in the Midwest, on Monday night. There have only been two No. 8 seeds to reach the championship game since the field expanded in 1985 — Villanova in 1985 and Butler in 2011. Connecticut is the

first No. 7 seed to reach the title game. This will be the first time since 1966 that two teams that weren’t in the tournament the year before meet for the title. The teams that year were Texas Western and Kentucky. Connecticut was ineligible last season because of academic issues and Kentucky played in the NIT. Napier helped seal this game with about 2 minutes to play when he made two free throws for a 59-47 lead. That Please see HUSKIES | 11A

Maryland tries to ruin Irish’s 36-0 season BY DOUG FEINBERG AP Basketball Writer

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Brenda Frese and her Maryland Terrapins feel like uninvited guests at the Final Four. And that’s fine with the Terrapins coach. Back in the national semifinals for the first time since winning the championship in 2006, Maryland will try to spoil an unprecedented title game when the Terrapins face undefeated Notre Dame on Sunday night. Stanford plays unbeaten UConn in the other semifinal. “Maryland and Stanford are the extras at the Miss USA pageant,” Frese quipped. “Our job is to be able to crash the party.” While fourth-seeded Maryland (28-6) surprised many by reaching the Final Four, Notre Dame has been on a roll all season. The Irish are two wins away from the first undefeated season in school history and a second national

championship. Coach Muffet McGraw said her team tries to focus on the next game and not making history, which has helped them remain perfect this season. “It’s been easy,” McGraw said of keeping her team focused. “The easiest thing that we’ve had to do this year. Take it one game at a time. the seniors have done a great job, making sure nobody is looking ahead. We’ve been here before and we know we have a lot of work to do. “You can’t get to a national championship till you win the first game.” The Irish (36-0) are still dealing with the loss of senior leader Natalie Achonwa, who suffered a torn ACL in the regional final victory over Baylor on Monday night. Achonwa said the team dealt with her injury well and is concentrating on the upcoming game. “I think that we’re just focusing on playing Maryland. We’re focusing on what

are we going to do offensively and defensively right now it happened,” she said. “I tore my ACL. It happened and I think we’re looking beyond that, and what we’re going to do to win tomorrow.” Achonwa was on the sidelines during the team’s open practice leaning on her crutches. She was shouting encouraging words to her teammates and talking to freshman Taya Reimer, who will replace her in the starting lineup. “Only advice I can give her is be Taya Reimer,” Achonwa said. “She doesn’t have to be me. At the end of the day, she came to Notre Dame for a reason. Coach McGraw recruited her because she’s a great basketball player and a great person. She just needs to go out and do that.” Even without their senior leader, the Irish have an experience advantage over the Terrapins having advanced to the Final Four the last four

years. They are still looking for their first title since 2001. “And I think for us, you know, it’s more of a business trip,” McGraw said. “And we’re enjoying it and I think we’ve enjoyed all the moments that we’ve had this year, but I think there’s so many distractions today especially with the open practice, autograph signings and all those things, that you need to make sure you’re focused on the task at hand.” The two teams met back in January with the Irish coming away with an 87-83 victory. Notre Dame had a 22-point lead in that game before the Terrapins rallied to take the lead in the second half before falling. Both sides feel that the game becoming tight could benefit them. “It really does,” McGraw said. “Watching film, you get to see them at their best. That’s what you need. Going into a game like this, you want to see what they do well.

seven years. Stanford has two titles to its credit, though the Cardinal have been shut out in eight previous Final Four berths over the past 20 years. Compare that to UConn, which has won all its titles on 13 trips in that same span. Auriemma said every team here can win a national title, which is the beauty of the Final Four. “All you got to do is play really well two nights, and you can win a national championship,” Auriemma said. “And all four teams that are here are capable of doing that because they’ve already done that. So I don’t think they should feel like they’re a JV team. I don’t think they should anybody should feel like they’re the extras at the Miss America pageant.” Stanford coach Tara VanDerveer credits the media wanting the story of two undefeated teams playing for a title, and she makes no apologies for wanting to muck that up. “If we’re going to be someone’s hors d’oeuvre, we’re not going to get swallowed easily,” VanDerveer said. “We’re

going to work really hard to play the best game we can, and we definitely talk about it.” The Huskies have won six of the past seven against Stanford, including the last tournament meeting in the 2010 title game. They also won Nov. 11 in Storrs by 19. The defending national champion has won 44 straight overall, and UConn sophomore Breanna Stewart was named The Associated Press’ player of the year Saturday. Stewart is scoring a teamhigh 19.4 points a game and much more confident in her second Final Four. “I’ve been here before, but I still want to accomplish the same task,” Stewart said. All five starters score in double figures, and the Huskies play defense just as well. They hold opponents to 47.3 points a game and 30.7 percent shooting. Junior Kiah Stokes said Auriemma boosts their confidence by putting them in can’t win situations like playing five on nine. Then there’s that crucial experience as a program with

this their seventh straight Final Four. “It’s even harder now because people don’t want us to win again,” Stokes said. “It’s exciting for us, and we’re looking forward to it. It takes a lot of work. We know it will take even more work than last year.” Stanford last upset UConn in the NCAA tournament in the 2008 national semifinal, a game VanDerveer has mentioned to her players noting those Huskies had the likes of Tina Charles and Maya Moore. “They have a very talented team this year, but we just have to play well,” VanDerveer said. Stanford (33-3) has won four straight since a loss in the Pac-12 tournament. All-American Chiney Ogwumike has much more help during the NCAA tournament than in that early loss at UConn. Point guard Amber Orrange, freshman guard Lili Thompson and Mikaela Ruef have kept opposing defenses from collapsing around the senior forward.

Rutgers wins women’s NIT over UTEP Stanford looks to end UConn’s run at perfection Associated Press

EL PASO, Texas — Tyler Scaife went coast-to-coast and scores with 2 seconds left to give Rutgers the Women’s National Invitation Tournament championship with a 56-54 win over UTEP on Saturday. Rutgers (28-9), which led 30-16 at the half, withstood a furious secondhalf rally by UTEP (29-8), which tied it at 54 with 7 seconds to play on a putback by Chrishauna Parker. Scaife took the inbounds pass and raced downcourt to score the winning points to quiet UTEP’s home sellout crowd of 12,222. “I just knew we had to get down the floor and score,” said Scaife, a freshman who was named the tournament MVP. “I’m happy it went in. “I’m just happy we finished the season off like this.” Rutgers Hall of Fame coach C. Vivian Stringer, who won her 929th game, said her team did well to win in a tough environment -- and for the third straight time on the road. Rutgers was led by Kahleah Cooper and Scaife, who each finished with 18 points, and Briyona Canty with 12. UTEP got 16 points from Kristine Vitola and 11 from Jenzel Nash. UTEP trailed by 18 points early in the second half before runs of 8-2 and 12-2 helped it cut the Rutgers lead .


NASHVILLE, Tenn. — All the talk of Stanford feeling like a junior varsity team crashing the Final Four or being an extra at the beauty pageant is just rhetoric to UConn coach Geno Auriemma. Motivational chatter he says no team here needs since each has won a championship. Auriemma noted Saturday he’s never won any pageant. Nope, he and his Connecticut Huskies just win titles — and they’re back chasing perfection again. They are two wins from making history: The first program in the women’s game with nine national titles. “I think this team thinks they can win anywhere, anytime against anybody,” Auriemma said. Before UConn (38-0) can think of a possible undefeated showdown with Notre Dame in the title game, however, the Huskies must get past Stanford Sunday night in one national semifinal. Stanford is back at the Final Four for the sixth time in

they’re all performing, in that stage, under those lights, which is an amazing story.” Including Young, who is too often relegated to supporting actor in favor of bruising forward Julius Randle and the Harrison twins. But perhaps it was inevitable that when things were falling apart for Kentucky, it was Young who kept holding his team together. Praised by his teammates for his laid-back demeanor, Young scored two baskets on a single trip down floor that put a charge in his scuffling team. He first scored on a driving layup while getting fouled, and then after missing the free throw, wound up with the ball in his hands again. Young calmly knocked down a jump shot from the

wing, drawing Kentucky within striking distance and sending its fans into a tizzy. Young added two free throws to cap the 15-0 surge that gave Kentucky the lead. From that point on, the game turned into the kind of back-and-forth classic that has become a hallmark of this topsyturvy NCAA tournament. Young’s basket with just under 8 minutes to go got Kentucky within 64-62, and his defense down the stretch helped the Wildcats hang on when Wisconsin threatened to pull ahead. When the final buzzer sounded, and the raucous celebration began, Young was right in the middle of it, just as he’d been in the middle of things all night long. “We just had to pick it up,” Young said. “We just have the will to win.”


margin was the deficit the Huskies (31-8) faced in the opening minutes after a cold shooting start. “I knew we was going to get back in the game. They knew we was going to get back in the game,” second-year coach Kevin Ollie said. “We live and die on defense and hopefully everybody understands that.” With Ollie in a defensive stance himself most of the game, the Huskies sidetracked the Florida offense by shutting down point guard Scottie Wilbekin and 3-point specialist Michael Frazier II, who scored a combined seven points. “UConn was very good with their pressure on our guards and we didn’t convert points,” Florida coach Billy Donovan said. “They scored a lot on as well. So all the credit goes to them.” The Huskies were impressive on offense, shooting 55.8 percent (24 of 43) from the field against a team that allowed opponents to shoot 39.9 percent this season. “Whomever I put in the game, it was positive and they were productive,” Ollie said. DeAndre Daniels had 20 points and 10 rebounds for Connecticut, and it was his two 3-pointers in a span of 1:43 that helped ignite the Huskies after they had fallen behind 16-4. “DeAndre was huge for us,” Ollie said. “He stepped up and really rebounded for us and was pretty much unstoppable.”

Napier, who leads the team in almost every category, finished with 12 points and six assists. He definitely got the better of Wilbekin in a matchup of senior point guards, both conference players of the year. Napier had two key second-half steals on Wilbekin, both of which led to UConn baskets. Wilbekin was bothered by cramps throughout the game. “It was right when the second half started. I was getting a little cramp, it wasn’t too bad,” Wilbekin said. “I got out of the game and got some ice and it wasn’t really a problem from then on.” The Connecticut guards were. Florida had 11 turnovers and a season-low three assists. “That’s crazy, that’s not usually what we do,” Wilbekin said. “All credit goes to them and their guards and the way they were denying and putting pressure on us.” Patric Young had 19 points for Florida (363), which had won all of its NCAA tournament games by at least 10 points. The Gators shot just 38.8 percent from the field (19 of 49), well off their 46.1 percent average. “Once they got their defense set, I thought we had a hard time dealing with their pressure up top,” Donovan said. The Huskies used 3 pointers to open things up inside, hitting 5 of 12 from long range. They had such an easy time scoring inside that they had only one basket outside the paint in the final 20 minutes, shooting 63.6 percent (14 of 22).

Special dance needs right song Wedding tradtionalists know there will be a number of required dances at the reception to keep them on their toes. From spotlight dances to special requests, the night is sure to be filled with memorable moments on the dance floor. While it may be tempting to leave musical selections entirely up to a band or disc jockey, couples should choose the songs they dance to during specialized dances. A bride’s dance with her father and a groom’s dance with his mother are special moments during a wedding reception that can evoke strong emotions and a few tears. Part of what makes these moments so memorable are the songs themselves. Choosing the right songs can be difficult, but there are ways to make the decision-making process go more smoothly. Start out by making a list of the songs that you like and believe convey feelings that you want to share with others. Ask your father or mother to make a similar list. These lists can be compared and then a common element may become ap-

parent. Many brides and grooms will happily defer the choice to their parents, which can give parents a role in the wedding planning and make them feel like they have had an important hand in the festivities -- rather than just signing a check or showing up for the fun. When considering songs, select among songs that have a special meaning or represent the bond between parent and child. There may be a song from your youth that you enjoy or one that you sang to a parent at a school performance that is particularly memorable. Consider songs that are a favorite of your parent. Songs that seem to transcend time often work best for these spotlight dances, rather than something that is too trendy. When choosing a song, it helps to consider a song that has some sort of back beat. This can make it easier for novice dancers to follow along and still move gracefully. Do not feel the song has to be extremely slow. If your dancing partner and you are confident on the dance floor, there are many differ-

ent songs that can be fitting, from country to soft rock to jazz. Timing of the song is also important. Father-daughter and motherson dances are not the times for lengthy songs. While these certainly may be good choices for when the DJ needs to take a bathroom break, their length could leave you on the dance floor too long and bore your guests as a result. Keep spotlight songs short and to the point. After all, the goal is to have guests up dancing and enjoying themselves. If you and your parent are not the sentimental types, then by all means select a song that’s less traditional. Rock to heavy metal or show your culture with a song that calls to mind your heritage. In some cases the spotlight dance can be even more poignant when a parent is no longer living and is attending the wedding in spirit only. You may opt to have a few special words said with a particular song that reflects a parent’s personality. Otherwise, you can dance with another person in your mother or father’s stead.

Welcome bags make wedding guests feel special Welcome bags are a wedding tradition that allow couples to show their appreciation to their guests for being there for their big day. Welcome bags often await guests when they check into their hotels, providing them with an instant token of appreciation.

Couples should keep in mind a few things when creating them for their guests. •Include an item that can be tied into your wedding. Bottle openers, coffee mugs or keychains with the name of the locale on them make good additions to a welcome bag.

•Choose nonperishable foods. Many hotels ask for the welcome bags a few days in advance, so perishable items are sure to spoil before guests arrive at the hotel. •Include directions to the wedding venue and a schedule of the weekend’s activities.

Letterman’s departure will reshape late-night TV BY DAVID BAUDER AP Television Writer

NEW YORK — Jimmy Fallon’s fast start replacing Jay Leno on the “Tonight” show the past two months had a secondary effect: David Letterman suddenly seemed old. The Top 10 list, the ironic detachment, even the set at the Ed Sullivan Theater. Time doesn’t stop for comedy legends, or superstars of any sort. Letterman, who announced Thursday that he will retire from late-night television sometime in 2015, had to feel it. CBS now faces the challenge of moving on in a reordered late-night world at a time the two Jimmys — NBC’s Fallon and ABC’s Kimmel — have a significant head start. When Jay Leno left in February, Letterman lost his foil — the man whose victory in the competition to replace Johnny Carson two decades ago he never let go. Leno was someone who spoke his language,

though, a generational compadre, and when he left, Letterman was alone. Fallon and Kimmel have a different style, more good-natured and less mocking of the entire concept of a talk show. It’s hard to know what role the new competition played in Letterman’s decision. His last contract extension, signed before Fallon took over, was for one year. The first time Leno left late-night, Letterman ascended to the throne. Not this time. Since Fallon began at “Tonight,” his show has averaged 5.2 million viewers, while Letterman has averaged 2.7 million and Kimmel 2.65 million, the Nielsen company said. Last year Letterman averaged 2.9 million and Kimmel 2.5 million, so the direction was clear. Much of late-night now is about making an impression in social media, or in highlight clips that people can watch on their devices and spread


around the next day. Fallon and Kimmel have excelled in spreading their comedy beyond their time slots; Letterman has barely bothered. Late-night television is a far different world than when Letterman and Leno began their competition. There are more entertainment shows to choose from, with personalities like O’Brien, Arsenio Hall, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert and Chelsea Handler working every night. CBS will first have to decide whether or not to continue with an entertainment program in that time slot. It’s not the money-maker it once was, but chances are the network will continue in that direction. The first in-house candidate would be Craig Ferguson of “The Late Late Show,” which currently airs at 11:35 p.m. Eastern on CBS and is produced by Letterman. But Ferguson’s star has dimmed, his show quickly passed by in

the ratings by Seth Meyers on NBC, and he is considered an unlikely choice. A month ago, Kimmel was asked by TV Guide magazine whether he would be interested in succeeding Letterman, and he didn’t shoot down the idea. “I’d definitely consider it,” Kimmel said. “I am loyal to ABC and grateful to them for giving me a shot. I was a guy from ‘The Man Show’ when they put me on. I’m not looking to flee. But just getting a call from Dave would be big for me. So it’s definitely something I would listen to.’” Could Leno come back? He’s not the retiring type, but he would hardly be considered a play for the next generation. Handler has let it be known that she’s ready to end her show on the E! network. A broadcast network gig again would be a step up for O’Brien. Colbert and Stewart both are considered major talents

encouraging him to relocate “Late Show” to LA. Wherever they’re located, Letterman’s replacement will face a real challenge with Fallon and Kimmel, who seem to have set up a bicoastal rivalry for years to come. Fallon is now king of the East Coast, and Kimmel currently rules out West. Besides the Top Ten lists, the monologue and occasional wild visit from Bill Murray, one facet of Letterman’s show that will be most sorely missed is his ability to do sharp, even hard-hitting interviews with people in the news. His first show after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks was memorable for his reaction. It’s hard to think of anyone who has the gravitas or ability to fill the role that Letterman fills. CBS Corp. and Moonves will have time to think of that over the next year, much of which will be spent celebrating Letterman’s legacy.

Two legendary stars portray ‘Game of Thrones’ in-laws BY FRAZIER MOORE AP Television Writer


and CBS would be much more high-profile than Comedy Central. John Oliver is about to start a new late-night show on HBO. The question is whether those personalities would have too narrow an appeal for CBS, which is the broadest of the broadcast networks and would likely be looking for someone with wide appeal. Remember, many in TV considered O’Brien’s “Tonight” show a failure because his appeal was too limited. Another possibility could be Drew Carey, a hit on CBS daytime with “The Price is Right” who recently traded jobs for a day with Ferguson. Another possible decision for CBS is whether to move the New York-based “Late Show” to Los Angeles, now that “Tonight” has moved back to New York after decades on the West Coast. Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti wasted no time on Thursday in firing off an open letter to CBS boss Leslie Moonves,

NEW YORK — Like every “Game of Thrones” fan, Charles Dance was gobsmacked by last season’s next-to-last installment. That episode floored viewers with its ritualistic “red wedding,” a massacre staged by Lord Walder Frey, the bride’s father, who meant to settle a score with his hall of guests, and did. “I got quite a shock!” says Dance, speaking for everyone who saw it. “It was bloody in the extreme!” The fact that Dance was caught off-guard is notable, since he’s a star of the show. Indeed, the character he plays, Lord Tywin Lannister, had a hand in the bloodshed. But he didn’t actually appear in that episode, “and when I’m not in it, to be honest with you, I don’t read the script,” Dance says. “I catch up on what’s happening when the episode airs.” “Game of Thrones,” which returns Sunday at 8 p.m. CDT on HBO, will pack its next punch soon enough in the new season. Such is the nature of this epic fantasy, set on a make-believe continent called Westeros, chockfull of warring kingdoms, rugged landscapes, lots of sex and swordplay, and, of course, fire-breathing dragons. If the scale of the series is vast, the source material is no less sprawling: the five-and-counting novels by George R.R. Martin in the “A Song of Ice and Fire” series. “I still have not read the books,” says Dance. “They frighten me, books that thick. And, anyway, we’re dealing with an adaptation. I think it’s counterproductive for actors to come to the set with wellthumbed copies of the book their film is adapted from.” Dance’s despotic Lord Tywin is the grandfather of King Joffrey, an infantile tyrant whose betrothed is the granddaughter of Olenna Tyrell.

“I loved the idea of playing this naughty old bag. It’s my idea of heaven.” Diana Rigg Actress Lady Olenna is played by Diana Rigg. On-screen soon-to-be in-laws, Rigg and Dance have known and worked together for decades, including a 1997 British TV adaptation of “Rebecca.” Little wonder they get on famously as they meet with a reporter at a Manhattan hotel. Rigg says she hasn’t read the “Game of Thrones” books either. “I rely upon the directors to fill me in before a shot,” she confides. “They’re very good with reminders.” The show’s dozens of cast members include Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Jack Gleeson, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Emilia Clarke. Asked what drew him into this elite community, Dance smiles and answers, “The writing was good, the costumes are great and, eventually, the location catering was fantastic.” “I loved the idea of playing this naughty old bag,” Rigg says, offering her own explanation. “It’s my idea of heaven.” Now 75, Rigg has had a rich and varied career in theater, both in her native Britain and as a Tony Award winner on Broadway, as well as films including the James Bond caper “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” and even an NBC sitcom. But her breakout role was in 1965 in the British TV thriller “The Avengers,” where she played the catsuit-clad karate queen Emma Peel. “It put me on the map,” she says, “which a lifetime of Shakespeare wouldn’t have done.” Tall and imperial, Dance, 67, grew up work-

ing-class in England and overcame a teenage stammer to devote himself to theater. His breakout project was the 1984 British TV hit “The Jewel in the Crown,” which he followed with such films as “Michael Collins” and “Gosford Park” and the British miniseries “Bleak House,” as well as lots of theater. His first job: working as a dresser in the original West End production of “Fiddler on the Roof.” Then he landed a spot in a London repertory company with a crushing regime: “It was 16 plays in 16 weeks. ‘What’s my motivation?’ ‘Your weekly paycheck. Just learn the lines and don’t bump into the furniture.’” Learning the lines wasn’t always possible, as when Dance’s mind went blank during a performance of “Charley’s Aunt.” But he was rescued. “A co-star came onstage with a tray. ‘Letter for you, sir.’ And on the tray was the page I needed from the script.” Likewise, Rigg paid her dues in repertory. Besides dashing onstage to say her lines, she was charged with such production chores as handling recorded sound effects and background music. “Once, when the curtain was coming down, I was supposed to play ‘Ride of the Valkyries,’” she says. Instead, she mistakenly cued up a polka. “The looks I got from the rest of the cast at our curtain call!” Rigg and Dance are cracking up at their shared memories of starting out so long ago. But both are caught short by this inquiry: When did you know you had finally made it? “When I could book a holiday,” Dance replies after a bit of thought, “and know there was a job to come back to.” As for Rigg, “It was when I found money in a handbag I didn’t know I had: ‘How did THAT get in there and how did I not notice it? I must be on my way!’”

Jon Cryer working on ‘candid’ memoir Associated Press

NEW YORK — Jon Cryer, an actor who knows a thing or two about Charlie Sheen and Demi Moore among others, is working on a “candid” memoir. The Emmy-winning star of “Two and a Half Men” has a deal with New American Library, an imprint of Penguin Random

House. The publisher announced Wednesday that the book, currently untitled, is scheduled to be released next spring. According to the New American Library, Cryer will share “candid” and “fascinating” stories about his 30-year career. He debuted on film opposite Moore in “No

Small Affair” and became known to millions as “Duckie,” Molly Ringwald’s pal in “Pretty in Pink.” In a statement released Wednesday, Cryer joked that he would write about stamp collecting, monetary policy and maybe Sheen, his former “Two and a Half Men” co-star.
