March becomes warmest month on record BY JEBB JOHNSTON email@example.com
The National Weather Service has combed through the records and found no warmer March or first three months across north Mississippi and west Tennessee. Mild temperatures allowed residents to save on winter heating costs and to get an early start on gardening. The Corinth Gas & Water Department is among those that has seen the impact of a balmy winter. “We normally come out of winter with [natural gas] storage at least under 40 percent,” said Gas & Water Manager John Rhodes. “This year, here we are out of the winter months, and our storage is about 80 percent.” Similar circumstances can be found across much of the country, including the northern states, he said. According to the National Weather Service Memphis Forecast Office, March was the warmest on record, with an average temperature of 63.8 in Tupelo, 9.8 degrees above normal, and 64.8 in Memphis, 10.8 de-
grees above normal. March had 19 days with temperatures at least 10 degrees above normal in Tupelo. Corinth had 16 days in March with high temperatures of at least 75 degrees, according to Corinthweather. net. The lowest temperature recorded in March was a low of 31 on March 4. The weather service said the warm March resulted from a lack of strong cold fronts moving through and a strong ridge of high pressure over the eastern U.S. It is also the warmest year to date through March 31, with an average temperature of 53.8 in Tupelo, 6.6 degrees above the normal, and 54 in Memphis, 6.8 degrees above the normal. The warm weather and lack of a late cold snap present the area with a “tremendous opportunity” for fruit and vegetable production, said Patrick Poindexter, county director for the Mississippi State University Extension Service. “I’m seeing a good deal of excitement generated by this warm weather,” he said. “Everybody is really busy right now as far as planting and
preparations.” He shares in the enthusiasm. “My blueberry bushes are loaded down, as well as my apple tree,” said Poindexter. The critical test is getting past the threat of last freeze around April 15. “If we can get past that and not have a freeze, we should have a bumper crop of fruit and a tremendous vegetable year,” he said. Disease and insect pressures could be concerns, however, as well as adequate summer rain. And the temperature does not have to go below freezing to cause problems. “Especially with these fruit trees, the temperature even bordering on freezing can cause a stresser, and the first thing they are going to do is shed their fruit,” said Poindexter. Although the chances of avoiding a late freeze are getting better each day, he said he remembers snow on April 21 just a few years ago. The weather service says the outlook for April through June calls for warmer than normal temperatures in northeast Mississippi and across the Mid-South.

Van Hedges collects Civil War treasures, especially anything with Corinth interest BY BOBBY J. SMITH firstname.lastname@example.org
In the second-floor office of a downtown Corinth business is an treasure of information for historians and students of the Civil War. The collection belongs to Van Hedges, president of Southern Insurance Consulting on Waldron Street. Hedges is a collector of any document that originated in or depicts Corinth during the American Civil War. The most numerous items in Hedges’ collection are the soldiers’ letters. “Over 300,000 soldiers were in Corinth during the course of the war,” Hedges said. “As you can imagine, that created a lot of paper.” Other documents include telegraphs, passes granting soldiers permission to go on leave or travel, parole papers and much. One document is an invitation to a New Year’s Eve officers’ banquet. A wide variety of life during the Civil War is represented in the collection of paperwork. Hedges’ collection of soldiers’ portraits is extensive as well. With two photog-
raphers’ studios in Corinth during the war, soldiers stationed in the town had ample opportunities to sit for a portrait photo. Many of the soldiers’ portraits are called carte de vistas, a small type of photograph that was popular in the mid 19th century. “Basically they were the baseball cards of the day. Soldiers would send them home and trade them with others from their unit,” Hedges said. While letters and carte de vistas are among the more numerous items in Hedges collection, “you will find a little bit of everything,” he said. One poignant item is a small, palm-sized New Testament that was found in the hand of a dead Confederate soldier after the Battle of Corinth. Inside the front cover is a message from the soldier addressed to his “dear” sister. “I’m on my way to Glory,” wrote the dying soldier. The most valuable item in the collection is the order by Gen. P.G.T. Beauregard for Please see HEDGES | 3

Church service, egg hunt move to stadium BY STEVE BEAVERS firstname.lastname@example.org

SELMER, Tenn. — First Baptist Church is going on the road to reach the lost. The church will move its annual Easter service to McNairy Central’s Don Whitaker Stadium on Sunday morning in hopes of bringing out more of the unchurched. “Our vision team was talking about things we could do and we came up with this outside the box way to reach people,” said church pastor Bro. Mark Thompson. “Lost people need Jesus and Easter is for them.” The outside service is replacing the church’s normal two-service time, which sees around 800 attend on Easter Sunday. “Easter with First Baptist” is set to begin at 9 a.m. with a meet and greet time with coffee,

juice and doughnuts. A community Easter Egg hunt will begin at 9:30 with over 6,000 eggs to be gathered by youngsters. “Out of the concept of having services at the stadium, the eggs became the draw,” said minister of music Bryan Essary. “With the exception of Judgment House, this is the biggest thing we have done.” First Baptist has set an attendance goal of 1,200. The church easily surpassed its target of 5,000 eggs filled with candy. From flyers, to in-house videos, and plastic coffee cups, the church has pooled all its assets to promote the unique service. “We want people to see that First Baptist Church wants to serve Jesus,” said Thompson. “We are praying for 1,200 people and that a number of them will be saved on Sunday.” The church’s outside the box
effort has created an excitement within the congregation, according to their pastor. “People are enthused and asking what they can do to help,” said Thompson. “When this was brought up it was suppose to be a thing to get everyone involved in church,” added Essary. “I haven’t heard anything negative, it has all been positive.” First Baptist will begin the 10 a.m. worship service with 20 minutes of music led by the worship choir, praise team, soloists and orchestra. “We will be hitting all gamuts with much more upbeat music followed by traditional hymns,” said Essary. Thompson’s message will be, “Why Three Crosses?” A nursery will be provided for newborn age through two years old.

What government owes us: Students speak to persuade I’ve been preparing my students for their last big assignment of the semester: a 5-7 minute persuasive speech. Of course, selecting topics is the first and most important hurdle because topics affect every aspect of preparation and delivery including research, fact-finding and audience analysis. We spend about a week discussing topics in class and I encourage students to survey their classmates regarding attitudes and beliefs on various topics. We’ve discussed everything from gun control to legalizing marijuana and prostitution, to keeping fine arts and physical education in high school. During one spirited classroom discussion some of my business majors began asking questions about Social Security Danny and entitlements. Someone Gardner said something about our soaring deficits and debt. And then Columnist a student said he didn’t believe we even had a debt, that his family had discussed all the press about the national debt and had concluded all the talk was made up. At this point the classroom exploded with protests and laughter. I enjoy teaching college students because I learn so much from them and what they have been taught. Last semester a student said Europe was in much better shape than the U.S. in terms of the economy. Really? We’re certainly heading in that direction but fortunately we’re not seeing austerity measures and street riots that have become so common across the pond. A while back FOX News featured an interview with a professor from Valencia College in Florida in which the professor shared answers his students gave to his question: “What is your American Dream and how can the federal government help you achieve it?” Answers included free healthcare, free college education, guaranteed jobs with good pay, down payment on a house, etc. Out of curiosity I asked my students a similar question (”What does the government owe you?”) and told them not to write their names on the paper. After they turned in their papers, we discussed the question in class as a means to stimulate thought about persuasive speech topics. About half the class responded the government owed us protection from attack (foreign and domestic), transportation (infrastructure), and truth in governing. I was impressed! Several students wanted more money and lower taxes from the government … literally. Yes, I know that begs the question of where the government gets money in the first place, but these students apparently believe the government has plenty of money without us having to give it more through taxes. Some surprising answers: free gas for cars; no taxes; provide more money; give higher tax refund checks; a better job and more and free college. And, the winner: “What the government owe me! More money for college, just more money in general.” Remember, these students, mostly freshmen and sophomores, will vote for the first time in November. Scarier than that, consider how these students developed these expectations of government. Their answers reflect not only what they’ve learned in their families, but also what they’ve learned in school about how our government works. Since the New Deal of the 1930s and through the Great Society and the War on Poverty of the 1960s, we’ve literally taught generations of families who are nearly if not totally dependent on Uncle Sam for their livelihoods that government’s role is to provide a long list of benefits and services (see lists above) including “money.” If I were among these generations of government-dependent families, I would certainly vote early and often for candidates who offered “free” benefits, services and money at the expense of “rich folks.” Because, after all, it’s only “fair.” (Daniel L. Gardner is a former resident of Corinth who now lives and teaches in Starkville. He may be contacted at Daniel@ DanLGardner.com.)

Reminder of the true meaning of redemption For the first time in 34 years, Chuck Colson won’t be in a prison for Easter. The famous Watergate figure and Christian convert usually spends the day ministering to prisoners, but is recovering from surgery to remove a blood clot on his brain. Colson, 80, is a giant of our time. He is a reminder of the true meaning of redemption, a concept that has been debased in our Tilt-a-Whirl media culture that can’t distinguish between notoriety and fame. In contemporary America, redemption begins sometime between the first check-in into rehab and the first cable-TV interview, and reaches completion when everyone gets distracted by someone else’s attentiongrabbing disgrace. Colson’s personal redemption was wrenchingly sincere, a shattering experience that brought him through that great narrative arc of conversion: worldly success, crushing humiliation and then victory in terms he never would have imagined when he was at the pinnacle of power by the side of the leader of the free world. Colson was known, in the words of a Wall Street Jour-
nal headline that stuck with him, as Nixon’s “hatchet man.” He helped build Rich the sinews Lowery of the Silent Majority with National outreach to Review constituencies like labor, and was an all-around fixer. Nixon loved his ruthlessness. Colson had every reason to feel proud of his status. He was in the swim of events, a big man, a tough guy, talked about, respected and feared. But pride is the great villain in Colson’s classic autobiography, “Born Again.” When he gave the valedictory at his high school in Cambridge, Mass., he emphasized pride. When he turned down a full scholarship to Harvard, he did it out of pride — to stick it to all the swells. In the Nixon White House, he served a man drunk on pride. Colson left government after Nixon’s re-election, feeling exhausted and empty. As the furor over Watergate grew, he visited a friend one night, a successful businessman who had converted to Christianity. The friend
read a passage from C.S. Lewis: “Pride always means enmity — it is enmity. And not only enmity between man and man, but enmity to God.” Later, Colson sat in his car outside the house weeping alone in the darkness, not tears of sadness nor of joy, but “of relief.” When he realized that the exigencies of his legal defense were inconsistent with the forthrightness entailed by his new faith, he pleaded guilty and became Prisoner 23226 at Maxwell Federal Prison Camp in Alabama, stripped of “power, prestige, freedom, even my identity.” Critics doubted and mocked Colson’s conversion. His Nixon administration adversary, former Attorney General John Mitchell, gibed that if Colson were a Christian, “I’ll take my chances with the lions.” Colson was forced, as he told James Rosen of Fox News a few years ago, to see “the world through the eyes of people who were disadvantaged and marginalized and rejected, the outcasts in society, the untouchables in American life.” Although in prison less than a year, he never quite left. He started his group Prison Fellowship, which is now active in most American prisons,
running Bible studies, sponsoring pen pals and providing gifts to the children of inmates. A devotee of the great English reformer and abolitionist William Wilberforce, Colson is one of the nation’s foremost voices for checking the excesses of America’s prison-industrial complex. He long ago came full circle from the enforcer of a “law and order” administration to an advocate of mercy and restraint. He doesn’t mind telling uncomfortable truths. He stirred up some of his fellow evangelicals when, in the 1990s, he promoted reconciliation with Catholics. He maddens the left with his unbending social conservatism. What seemed to be Chuck Colson’s fall from grace in the mid-1970s was really the opposite. It was the first step on an ascension to true courage and service. His life is a testament to how redemption, so often debased and abused in a 24/7 news cycle obsessed with celebrity and scandal, can be astonishingly powerful and real.

Please pass the $4 a piece shrimp Say goodbye to Martha Johnson. This week, she was forced to resign as chief of the General Services Administration, the federal agency that manages real estate for the government. Somehow Johnson managed to spend an incredible $820,000 for a conference outside of Las Vegas. Among the expenditures she okayed: $31,000 for a “networking reception,” $146,000 for catered food and drinks, as well as $130,000 in expenses to “scout” the conference’s hotel location. Apparently, Johnson’s advance team had to travel to Vegas six times to get a handle on where best to discuss GSA business. Somebody had to do it. In her resignation letter, Johnson acknowledged “a significant misstep.” Thanks.

President Obama’s chief of staff, Jacob Lew, says Obama “was outraged by the Bill e x c e s s i v e O’Reilly spending.” Oh, yeah? The O’Reilly Has he seen Factor the federal budget lately? This all ties in together. Federal bureaucrats know that tax dollars roll in no matter what. It’s the law. If you don’t want to wind up in the penitentiary like Wesley Snipes, you pay what the feds tell you to pay. And Johnson gets a taste. After all, what’s the big deal? The Obama administration is the biggest spending outfit in the history of the country. Why shouldn’t federal employees eat shrimp at $4 a piece at a cocktail
party? If the rich guys would only pay their fair share in taxes, they could swallow even more shellfish. I love the shrimp deal. A quick check with ShopRite confirms that one shrimp in that grocery chain sells for 30 cents. Peeled. But at the GSA bash, the shrimp was on a platter, so there’s that. By the way, the cheese display at that party cost $19 per person, and the sushi station was another $7,000. And just in case the federal employees were hungry the next morning, breakfast was $44 per person. Egg McMuffins, anyone? In case you haven’t noticed, Obama is fighting hard against cutting federal spending. He is now calling Congressman Paul Ryan’s austere budget proposal “Darwinism.” Obama contends that if the feds don’t continue to fund the money

train, some folks will be denied the American Dream. Like eating $4 shrimp. But my dreams have turned to nightmares with folks working for the federal government purloining my wallet and running wild in Vegas. This causes me to toss and turn because I have worked very hard for the money they are wasting. Yet the president still tells me that I am not paying my fair share. So, how about this tradeoff, Mr. President? I’ll stop whining about taxes if you order all future federal “conferences” to be held at a ShopRite. Fair?

State State near deal in lawsuit over beef plant BY JEFF AMY Associated Press
JACKSON — Mississippi could soon settle its 2007 lawsuit against the firms that built the financially disastrous beef plant in the Yalobusha County town of Oakland. Jan Schaefer, a spokeswoman for Attorney General Jim Hood, said the state and Georgia’s Facility Group, which was hired to oversee construction of the plant, have reached agreement although a settlement has yet to be submitted to Hinds County Circuit Judge Winston Kidd. “We have agreed on all
material terms but the formal written agreement is still being finalized,” Schaefer wrote in an email. Schaefer declined to release further details. Phil Abernethy, a lawyer for Facility Group, said Hood is still reviewing the document, but says it could be filed next week. The state’s lawsuit alleges that Facility Construction Management Inc., a subsidiary of the Smyrna, Ga., Facility Group, kept the project going even after executives knew it was doomed, so the company could keep bilking the state out

of money. Mississippi Beef Processors LLC closed three months after it opened in 2004, laying off 400 people and sticking taxpayers with $55 million in statebacked loans. Federal, state and local subsidies for the project totaled more than $71 million. There has been some payoff, as frozenfoods firm Windsor Quality Foods bought the plant in 2007 and now employs
300 people there. A trial had been scheduled to begin March 19 before Kidd, but never took place. The last public action in the case was lawyers arguing motions before Kidd in February. The Facility Group had asked Kidd to rule in such a way that it would have gutted the state’s case, while the state had been seeking to obtain 2004 federal grand jury testimony from the criminal
investigation of the plant. Six people went to jail in that case, including three leaders of the Facility Group — Robert L. Moultrie, Nixon E. Cawood and Charles K. Moorehead. Their company took over after Richard Hall, a Tennessee businessman who originally led the effort, ran into trouble. Hall, whose company collected a $5 million state grant in addition to loan guarantees,
was sentenced to eight years in prison after admitting he kept $751,000 in public and corporate funds for himself. Facility Group leaders said they gave illegal campaign contributions to Ronnie Musgrove, a Democrat who was governor from 1999 to 2003. Musgrove had only indirect influence over the project, said he did nothing wrong, and never faced criminal charges.

Waitress reclaims $12,000 tip MOORHEAD, Minn. — Associated Press
Authorities have decided to return a $12,000 tip to a Minnesota waitress that police believed was drug money. Stacy Knutson of Moorhead says a customer told her she could keep a
takeout container she left behind at the Fryn’ Pan restaurant. The box turned out to contain $12,000 in bills in various denominations. Police initially told her she could keep the money if no one claimed it, but later said it was part of a
drug investigation. On Thursday, after the case drew national attention, Assistant Clay County Attorney Michelle Lawson told reporters the money could not be tied to a criminal investigation, and that Knutson would get a check.
Job market takes spring break after winter hiring BY PAUL WISEMAN Associated Press
WASHINGTON — The U.S. job market took a breather in March after its best hiring stretch since the Great Recession. Employers added 120,000 jobs last month — half the DecemberFebruary pace and well short of the 210,000 economists were expecting. The unemployment rate fell from 8.3 percent in February to 8.2 percent, the lowest since January 2009, but that was largely because many Americans stopped looking for work. Still, few economists expect hiring to fizzle in spring and summer, as it did the past two years. And they blamed seasonal factors for much of Friday’s disappointing report from the Labor Department. “We don’t think this is the start of another spring dip in labor market conditions,” said Paul Ashworth, chief U.S. economist with Capital Economics. The report was also closely watched in political circles. If employers retreat on hiring, consumers could lose confidence in the economy and potentially dim President Barack Obama’s re-election hopes. Ashworth and other economists cited the weather for the latest jobs report. A warm January and February allowed companies to hire workers for outdoor jobs a few weeks earlier than usual, effectively stealing jobs from March. It partially explains a 34,000-job drop in retail hiring and a 7,000 drop in construction jobs. “Our winter didn’t really exist,” said Alan Amdahl, who runs his own construction company in Sioux Falls, S.D. “It’s just incredible. People didn’t hibernate.”
Economists also say the numbers can bounce around from month to month. Consistently creating 200,000 jobs a month is tough. The economy hasn’t put together four straight months of 200,000 or more new jobs since early 2000. Economists are still encouraged by the recent hiring trend: The economy has generated an average 212,000 jobs a month from January through March. Anthony Chan, chief economist at JP Morgan Wealth Management, noted strong growth among businesses that are especially sensitive to the economy’s health. Hotels and restaurants hired 39,000 workers. Manufacturers added 37,000. The factory hiring is especially welcome. Expanding factories create more jobs at the mines that produce raw materials, in warehouses and at trucking companies and at utilities that generate power. Government jobs, which declined by an average 22,000 a month last year, fell just 1,000 in March. An improving economy is generating tax revenue and easing budget problems at city halls and statehouses across the country. The March slowdown brings back painful memories of what happened in mid-2010 and 2011, when the economy lost momentum and job growth sputtered. The job market had been on a recent roll. From December through February, the country added 734,000 jobs. The only three-month stretch that was better since the recession ended was March through May 2010, when the government was hiring tens of

thousands of temporary workers for the census. Companies across the country are hiring: ■ Nimble Storage, a young information technology company in San Jose, Calif., is rapidly adding staff to keep up with demand for its data storage devices. Anup Singh, the company’s chief financial officer, says the explosive growth of data and the need for companies to store, analyze and deliver it is driving rapid expansion. Nimble Storage has added 30 employees so far this year, bringing its workforce to 175. It expects to hire 70 more by the end of the year. They are hiring engineers, sales people and customer support staff. ■ Landry & Kling Cruise Event Services in Miami, which arranges events on cruise ships, has added two workers this year and plans to hire two more. Sales are strong. “It’s like the floodgates are opening,” says CEO and co-founder Joyce Kling. “There’s an energy to our day now. We see a lot of leads floating through.” ■ IdeaPaint, a company that makes washable paint that people can use erasable markers on, has hired seven workers in the last three months. Sales have risen sharply and are expected to keep rising. So the Ashland, Mass.-based company has more plans to hire — it has 31 employees now and expects to have 40 at the end of the year. “We just had a board meeting yesterday and agreed to become more aggressive with our hiring, with our advertising, with our investment spending. We’re very confident,” CEO Bob Munroe said. The unemployment rate has dropped from 9.1 percent last August to 8.2 percent last month, the lowest since Obama’s first month in the White House. Each month, the government does one survey to learn how many jobs were created and another survey to determine the unemployment rate. Those surveys can produce results that sometimes seem to conflict. One is called the payroll survey. It asks mostly large companies and government agencies how many people they employed during the month. This survey produces the number of jobs gained or lost. The other is the household survey. Government workers ask whether the adults in a household have a job. Those who don’t are asked whether they’re looking for one. If they are, they’re considered unemployed. If they aren’t, they’re not considered in the work force and aren’t counted as unemployed. The household survey produces each month’s unemployment rate.

Virginia Beach firefighters work the scene of a jet crash Friday in Virginia Beach, Va. Two Navy pilots ejected from a fighter jet, sending the unmanned plane careening into a Virginia Beach apartment complex and tearing the roof off at least one building that was engulfed in flames, officials said. Six people, including both pilots, were taken to hospitals, officials said. The Navy said both aviators on board the jet ejected before it crashed around noon and were being taken to hospitals for observation.

MSU’s new offense needs work Associated Press
STARKVILLE — Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen wasn’t quite sure if his defense was that good or his offense was that bad. Regardless, he did know one thing after Friday’s first full scrimmage of spring workouts: There’s still a lot of work to do. “I don’t know that I ever get to really be happy after a scrimmage,” Mullen said. It wasn’t all bad for Mullen’s revamped offense that includes new starting quar-
terback Tyler Russell and new feature running backs LaDarius Perkins and Nick Griffin. There were a few encouraging signs — like Russell’s two touchdown passes and no turnovers during the nearly 150-play scrimmage — but there were also dropped passes, bad reads and ineffective stretches that plagued the marathon 21⁄2 hour scrimmage. In other words, the kind of things that won’t allow Mississippi State to win in the ultra-competitive Southeastern
Conference Western Division that includes Alabama, Auburn, LSU and Arkansas. “I want to see cleanness and consistency ... I think only four of our 13 drives had more than one first down and you can’t have that,” Mullen said. “That’s not moving the ball. That’s not playing the field position the game. Obviously, the defense really dominated.” Russell unofficially completed 22 of 44 passes for 218 yards and two touchdowns during Friday’s scrimmage. The 6-foot-5 junior from Me-
ridian, Miss., played quite a bit last season while splitting time with senior Chris Relf, but now that Relf is gone, Russell will play a much more prominent role. Backup Dak Prescott completed 17 of 32 passes for 226 yards and two touchdowns. Russell started out with a crisp first drive on Friday, completing 5 of 7 passes for 65 yards, including a 14-yard touchdown pass to Chris Smith. Please see BULLDOGS | 11

Petrino didn’t want 911 call Associated Press
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.— Moments after their motorcycle accident, Bobby Petrino and a female employee told a passer-by not to call 911, then got a ride back to Fayetteville where the Arkansas football coach was met by a state trooper who provides his personal security during the season. New details of the immediate aftermath of Petrino’s crash were in a 911 call released Friday by the state police. The passer-by, Larry Hendren, describes coming upon the accident scene Sunday evening just after Petrino and Jessica Dorrell “were getting up out of the ditch.” He said Petrino was “walking, but it looked like his face was bleeding quite a lot.” “The rider and the passenger of the motorcycle declined us to call 911,” Hendren told a dispatcher. “They got into a vehicle and headed toward the hospital.” Petrino was taken to a Fayetteville intersection by another passer-by. There, Dorrell left in her own car while Petrino was met by Capt. Lance King, his personal security guard during the season. King took Petrino to a hospital, where he was treated for broken ribs and a cracked neck vertebra. State police said Friday they planned to question the trooper, looking for “any information Captain King may have learned about the crash” during conversations with Petrino. Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long is considered the future of the football coach, whose salary averages more than $3.5 million.

But then the Bulldogs bogged down. It wasn’t all the fault of the offense. Mississippi State’s veteran defense had something to say about it too. Senior linebacker Cameron Lawrence discussed the defense’s good day as the offense ran sprints in the background — which was punishment for losing. “We had a chip on our shoulder,” Lawrence said. “We didn’t want to be doing what they’re doing right now.” The Bulldogs are replacing a few key starters on defense, but still return veterans like defensive tackle Josh Boyd, cornerbacks Johnthan Banks and Corey Broomfield and Lawrence. It’s a group that’s played together for four years, so it’s not particularly surprising they were usually a step ahead of the younger offense.

Couples, Dufner lead Masters Associated Press
AUGUSTA, Ga. — Freddie Couples turned back the clock at the Masters on Friday — back to 1992 — during a seven-birdie second round that coaxed a fist pump from the California-cool 52-year-old and put him in a tie for the lead with Jason Dufner at Augusta National. “Can I win?” Couples said, repeating the question that so many are asking now. “Yeah, I believe I can. Yes.” He shot 5-under 67, the same score he posted 20 years ago during the second round of what turned out to be one of the most popular wins in
the history of the tournament. Were it not for the gray hair beneath his cap, this might have been confused for a replay of that ’92 win instead of the second round in 2012. “Standing out there, I said, ‘What the hell,’ a lot. What do I have to lose here?” Couples said. Meantime, Phil Mickelson made six birdies during a round of 4-under 68 to pull to 2 under for the tournament. Tiger Woods shot 3-over 75 and was at 3 over for the tournament, closer to the cut line of 5 over than the lead.

He is usually withdrawn from the rest of the Abigail family, and I strongly Van Buren suspect it's Dear Abby because he cares more about his online fantasies than he does about his life with my brothers, my mother and me. I don't know what to do. I can no longer look him
in the eye. I don't respect him; I pity him. I'm afraid to tell anyone in my family because of the drama it will cause, and don't want to tell him because I know it will change our relationship. Still, I don't think I can keep this to myself. I have considered seeing a therapist, but I don't know how I can do that without giving my parents an explanation about why I'm going. What do you think I should do? â€” CONFLICTED TEEN IN NEW YORK DEAR CONFLICTED: You have been exposed to a large dose of information you shouldn't have, and for that you have my sympathy. If you
feel you need to discuss this with a therapist, then you definitely should. As I see it, you have several options. The first would be to talk to a counselor at school and ask if counseling is available that way. If it isn't, then tell your father you need it, and why. And if he refuses, tell your mother everything. DEAR ABBY: I'm a 23-year-old college junior, double-majoring in English and education. Although I am pretty advanced in my degree field, I'm having second thoughts about my decision. Every day it seems as if I invest all my time and energy into something I don't even want to
be a part of. I have a very adventurous spirit. I want to constantly be doing, going and discovering. Part of me says I'm an adult and I should ignore the explorer part of me. But it's hard to say that change isn't possible because we're talking the rest of my life. How can I connect passion with occupation â€” especially at this stage of the game? â€” GYPSY SOUL DEAR GYPSY SOUL: By thinking out of the box. There are various options in the field of education, and one of them is teaching English in foreign countries. Start looking for opportunities in that area, and you may
be able to also fulfill your urge for adventure. Another option that comes to mind would be joining the Peace Corps or Teach for America. Please consider what I am suggesting and do some research on your own. DEAR ABBY: Is it ever proper to wear your napkin tucked into your shirt collar when dining out, instead of placing it on your lap? Traditionally, a napkin is placed on the lap to prevent soiling of the clothing, I would guess. But some plussized folks and women with large bustlines don't usually have food reach their laps, just their shirts. So what do you think?â€”
JUST WONDERING IN NEW JERSEY DEAR JUST WONDERING: Your napkin belongs in your lap when dining out, regardless of what size you are. According to Emily Post, â€œan exception can be made for the elderly or infirm.â€? So if you are neither of those, consider carrying a stain remover â€œpenâ€? with you in case there is a slip twixt the fork and the lip. (Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.)
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (April 7). This year turns up your creativity and drive. By April's end, a new project consumes your energy and gives back tenfold. You'll have the attention of major players in
May. In June, friends lead you to different work. A trip in October helps financial prospects. The most romantic months will be July and December. Gemini and Sagittarius people adore you.
Horoscopes by Holiday BY HOLIDAY MATHIS If you still haven't mastered the art of doing nothing, the day after the full moon is a fine time to start figuring it out. Fifteen minutes of absolute nothingness could bring a deeper sense of relaxation than you'd get from a whole weekend of fun and games. But it has to be truly nothing. No television or Internet. Just sitting in the sanctuary of silence. ARIES (March 21-April 19). Sometimes it's lonely at the top, but you don't really mind because there is so much that's enjoyable there. Besides, you've worked so hard to get where you are. You can always remedy the situation by reaching out to friends. TAURUS (April 20May 20). You can handle the truth -- almost any truth -- when it's presented in a non-emotional manner. It's the feelings
that make facts difficult to process sometimes. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You're getting a certain reputation with yourself. What you think about you is the only opinion that really matters today, as any other opinions aren't likely to affect you. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Center yourself. If you don't know how, it's worth learning, because there's much to gain from being in a solid place internally. For starters, you'll be able to correctly assess your situation and make a winning play. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You like money because it buys you the freedom to arrange your life the way you want it. Without funding, less is possible. Seek financial aid to broaden your horizons. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You feel ready to take things to the next level.
Don't try to convince another person to feel the same. Act like they already do feel the same, and it will just happen naturally. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You'll feel better for getting something off of your chest. Whether it should go in your diary or you should actually tell the other person, well, that depends on what you're trying to accomplish. Which way is most selfless? SCORPIO (Oct. 24Nov. 21). Whatever you do, your instinct is to do it with style. This may take more money, time and effort than you originally wanted to give. However, you'll go forward anyway and later be glad you did. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Beware of trying to manage your feelings. Trying to feel what you think you should feel isn't going to work. When you let your true feelings
flow and accept them, other impulses such as grace and love will emerge. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). Your heart is not exactly overrun with joy, but it is pretty full, and you have much love to give. Certainly you're better off than most. And you'll be in just the generous mood to try to even things out by contributing all you can. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18). You may feel guilty for seeking happiness when there is so much need and pain in the world. But you owe it to the ones who are suffering to experience all the joy you possibly can. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It's been said that laugher is a form of exercise for your insides â€” like jogging. Your sense of humor will be going strong, so share it. Everyone around you needs this kind of â€œworkout.â€?
