The Board of Aldermen is asking MDOT to consider closing a short connector between Highway 72 and South Tate Street.

City considers street closure BY JEBB JOHNSTON jjohnston@dailycorinthian.com

Corinth officials are asking the Mississippi Department of Transportation to consider closing a short street that connects U.S. Highway 72 with South Tate Street. The Board of Aldermen on Tuesday voted to petition MDOT to consider closing the one-tenth of a mile strip along the grassy area on the southeast side of the highway intersection. Mayor Tommy Irwin said he has heard from a number of citizens over the last few years who are concerned about the road posing a safety hazard. It is often used as a cutthrough to avoid the busy highway intersection, but most people don’t know its name. It is not indicated on any street sign, but it is on the books as

“Government Street.” Decades ago, it accessed a weigh station, and it remains MDOT property. The road meets the highway at an angle at the same point where Sawyer Road meets the highway, creating an awkward intersection. Rodney Manahan, who works at Automatic Machine Products on Sawyer Road, believes it is dangerous. “I’ve been working there for 31 years, and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve almost been hit there because people use that road as a speed cut-through,” he said. When making a right turn from the highway onto Sawyer Road, “A lot of times they’re blocking the road where you can’t even turn in because they’ve used it like a right-ofway yield instead of an actual road itself,” said Manahan.

“There’s a lot of hazard in that area.” The only business on Government Street is Quick Way in a former bank branch. It also has access from Sawyer Road. In other business before the board this week: ■ Aldermen tabled the Margaret Bradley variance request. ■ The board set a public hearing for the May 6 meeting on cleanup of the Anderson property in Magnolia Drive subdivision. ■ Aldermen approved the purchase of a detective car for the police department at the state contract price of $16,775 and a replacement mower for the street department at the state contract price of $9,239. ■ The board approved an off-premises beer license for Corinth Discount Tobacco on U.S. 72.

Following are the remainder of sentences handed down during the March-April term of Alcorn County Circuit Court: ■ Willie Mayes, 57, burglary and larceny of a dwelling — 15 years in custody of the Mississippi Department of Corrections with 13 years and 10 months suspended, leaving 14 months to serve; five years probation; $500 fine ■ Charssla Roberson, 26,

uttering a forgery — Suspended 10-year sentence; five years probation; $1,000 fine; pay restitution of $423.12 to Roger’s Supermarket and $323.12 to Rich’s Discout Tobacco. The sentence is concurrent with a suspended sentence out of Prentiss County which includes restitution of $391.48 to Food Giant in Baldwyn. ■ Mark Anthony Mathis, 40, sale of cocaine from a TishoPlease see SENTENCES | 2

Narcotics unit makes 2 arrests Staff reports

Iuka library art show features artist’s works BY KIMBERLY SHELTON kshelton@dailycorinthian.com

IUKA — Beauty and intrigue collide at the Iuka Public Library as Stanley Robinson captivates with his abstract and surreal pieces. The artist was recognized in 1995 by the Mississippi Arts Commission when he won an Art Fellowship Award. He has done shows in the Municipal Art Gallery as well as volunteered in area schools and mental health facilities. His work will be featured in a special art show from now through the entire month of April. “I think everyone is really going to enjoy it,” said Robinson. The show is part of National Library Week. This year’s theme is “lives change at your library,” fitting since this show could very well change lives. Art enthusiasts will gain a glimpse at history as they get the opportunity to view two crazy quilts, each dated at over 100 years old. “A long time ago, people would take scraps of relatives clothing who had died or pieces of material which had significance to them and sew

Since then he has overseen Ole Miss athletics perform in more than just football. “Our Ole Miss Rebels are ranked in the top-25 in tennis, track and field, soccer and baseball,” Bjork said. “We have seen huge improvements in our basketball programs and what Coach Freeze has done for Rebel football is amazing.” In the last two years, Freeze has led his Rebels to 15 wins, two bowl games and the win over LSU, one fans won’t soon forget. “People ask me when Ole Miss is going to start a billboard war with Mississippi State,” said Bjork. “I always say – never. Billboards don’t win championships, people do.” Bjork said his main objective continues to be about changing the culture at Ole Miss. “We must define ourselves by who we should be and not what other people think we should be,” he said. Ole Miss is defining itself by improving on facilities and encouraging fans. “We are building $100 million worth of facilities right now with another $50 million in renovations coming this fall,” he said. “When football fans arrive on campus this fall, they’ll have an additional 600 parking spots to chose form ... and that’s just the start.” The A.D. said the best is yet to come. “We will build new facilities.

The only thing Ole Miss and Boise State have equal right now is time. My question to my players is, what are they doing with that time.” Freeze said its about being faithful and committed to being the very best, all the time. “It doesn’t matter what happened yesterday and tomorrow’s not here yet and we may not even have it,” he added. “It’s all about today - win the day.” When Freeze was hired in 2011, he was the university’s top choice to return championships to Ole Miss football.

“We can’t give our critics power,” he said. “If we start worrying about what everyone else is saying, we’ll lose focus on what really matters.” Freeze ended the night by thanking the crowd for helping make his dream come true. “I love being your coach – Hotty Toddy, go Rebels,” he said. The event helped raise much needed funds for the Tri-State Rebel Club. “All the money raised tonight from ticket sales, shirt sales and donations goes back into the club’s scholarship fund,” said Kenny Carson, club president. “With those funds, we will be able to send three students to Ole Miss this year.” Since 2010, the club has paid out more than $9,000 in scholarships to send students to Ole

Miss from one of the eight counties the club covers. The club offers free membership to not just alumni, but also friends and fans of Ole Miss who live in Alcorn, Prentiss and Tishomingo counties in Mississippi, McNairy and Hardin counties in Tennessee and Colbert, Lauderdale and Franklin counties in Alabama. “The road trip was a huge success. I couldn’t of done it without the other board members, volunteers and the great staff at Ole Miss,” Carson said. “Knowing these coaches want to come visit clubs and fans makes me even happier to be a Rebel.” (To join the Tri-State Rebel Club or for more information, connect at tristaterebelclub. com, facebook.com/ tristaterebels or twitter. com/tristate_rebel)

Today in history

Former Parchman inmate will speak BY JEFF YORK For the Daily Corinthian

Today is Thursday, April 17, the 107th day of 2014. There are 258 days left in the year.  

Today’s Highlights in History: On April 17, 1964, Geraldine “Jerrie” Mock became the first woman to complete a solo airplane trip around the world, returning to Columbus, Ohio, after 29 1/2 days and 21 stopovers in her Cessna 180. Ford Motor Co. unveiled its new Mustang model at the New York World’s Fair, five days before the fair’s official opening. The first game was played at New York’s Shea Stadium; the Pittsburgh Pirates defeated the Mets, 4-3.  

On this date: In 1492, a contract was signed by Christopher Columbus and a representative of Spain’s King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella, giving Columbus a commission to seek a westward ocean passage to Asia. In 1521, Martin Luther went before the Diet of Worms (vohrms) to face charges stemming from his religious writings. (He was later declared an outlaw by Holy Roman Emperor Charles V.) In 1861, the Virginia State Convention voted to secede from the Union. In 1924, the motion picture studio MetroGoldwyn-Mayer was founded, the result of a merger of Metro Pictures, Goldwyn Pictures, and the Louis B. Mayer Co. In 1937, the animated cartoon character Daffy Duck made his debut in the Warner Bros. cartoon “Porky’s Duck Hunt,” directed by Tex Avery. In 1941, Yugoslavia surrendered to Germany during World War II. In 1961, some 1,500 CIA-trained Cuban exiles launched the disastrous Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba in an attempt to topple Fidel Castro, whose forces crushed the incursion by the third day. In 1969, a jury in Los Angeles convicted Sirhan Sirhan of assassinating Sen. Robert F. Kennedy. The First Secretary of Czechoslovakia’s Communist Party, Alexander Dubcek, was deposed. In 1970, Apollo 13 astronauts James A. Lovell, Fred W. Haise and Jack Swigert splashed down safely in the Pacific, four days after a ruptured oxygen tank crippled their spacecraft while en route to the moon. In 1984, an 11-day police siege began at Libya’s embassy in London when an unidentified shooter inside the building fired on a crowd of protesters, killing police officer Yvonne Fletcher. (The Libyans in the embassy were eventually allowed to leave the country as Britain and Libya severed relations.) In 1993, a federal jury in Los Angeles convicted two former police officers of violating the civil rights of beaten motorist Rodney King; two other officers were acquitted. Turkish President Turgut Ozal died at age 66.  

Ten years ago: Searchers found the body of missing North Dakota college student Dru Sjodin. (Alfonso Rodriguez Jr. is under federal sentence of death for kidnapping and killing Sjodin.) Israel assassinated Hamas leader Abdel Aziz Rantisi with a missile strike on his car.

P.O. Box 1800 Corinth, MS 38835

Former Parchman Penitentiary resident Eddie Spencer will be coming to Corinth soon to speak at Living Free Ministries and the Lighthouse Foundation. Spencer has a powerful testimony of how it has transformed his life and has allowed him to help others along the way. Spencer will speak at the Lighthouse Foundation on Wednesday, April 30 and at the Living Free Ministries’ Celebartion Night on Thursday, May 1. While he is in Alcorn County, Spencer will visit three schools to talk with students. “We are excited to bring Eddie back to Corinth,” said Tommy Wilson, founder of Living Free. “He was here two years ago and he is an outstanding speaker. Eddie will get real during his talks and he gets your attention in a good way.” Inmate 46857 sat on his prison cot at Parchman Penitentiary in 1982 fingering his homemade knife and contemplating murdering two fellow inmates just to strengthen his tough reputation. As the nineteen-yearold convict visualized himself stabbing his intended victims, God intervened and provided deliverance. The encounter took only a moment, but getting there had taken a lifetime, according to Spencer. Instantly,

Inmate 46857 turns his life around. all the years of anger and rejection flashed before

his eyes. Coming from a poor

family in Southern Mississippi helped fuel his

anger and led him to a young life filled with crime. He recalled one incident of being taunted for having to wear girls’ shoes to school because they were the only shoes he had at the time. As memories flooded back, Inmate 46857 felt the pain and poverty of his childhood. He pictured himself the morning his only pair of shoes had fallen apart and his mother sent him to school wearing his sister’s shoes. As Eddie stepped into his first grade classroom, his classmates taunted him, “Look at Eddie Spencer. He’s got littlegirl shoes on!” Humiliation and revenge gripped his young mind, launching him on a journey of crime and violence in the streets of the Mississippi Delta. Finally, Eddie recalled the night he slipped into a house, pointed a gun at a sleeping man’s face and demanded, “Give me all your money!” His victim handed over the cash, but he also spoke some amazing words that Eddie would never forget. The victim witnessed to Eddie about Jesus and that pivotal moment helped change his life forever. As the words replayed in his head, Inmate 46857 knew exactly what he must do. He put away his “shank” and made the choice that forever changed his heart.

Death row inmate challenges 1994 conviction BY JACK ELLIOTT JR. Associated Press

JACKSON — The Mississippi Supreme Court has set out a timetable for attorneys for a death row inmate to file briefs by late May supporting his appeal of a 1994 rape conviction. In refusing to set an execution date for Charles Ray Crawford in March, the Supreme Court said it would resolve the appeal of prior rape conviction first. That conviction was cited as an aggravating factor by prosecutors in justifying the death sentence Crawford received

in 1994 for the slaying of a junior college student. The Supreme Court filed an order Monday setting out the briefing scheduled. Prosecutors will have 30 days after Crawford’s lawyers file his arguments to file a response. If the Supreme Court upholds Crawford’s conviction in the earlier case, Attorney General Jim Hood could again petition the court to set an execution date. Crawford’s attorneys have argued in court documents that if the rape conviction is reversed,

the jury would have considered “an invalid aggravator in imposing the death sentence.” They argued reversal would mean Crawford would have the right to have his death sentence thrown out and a new sentencing hearing scheduled in Tippah County. Prosecutors have said a reversal of the earlier rape conviction would be a harmless error because of the abundance of evidence supporting the death penalty in the capital murder case. They said Crawford was also convicted of aggravated

assault in the early trial, another aggravating factor used to justify the death penalty. Few details of the prior rape and aggravated assault convictions are discussed in the earlier briefs in the death penalty case. Crawford, now 43, was sentenced to death for the murder of Northeast Mississippi Community College student Kristy Ray in rural Tippah County. In 1993, Crawford was out on bond awaiting trial on charges of aggravated assault and rape. Four

days before his trial, the 20-year-old Ray was abducted from her parents’ home in Chalybeate. After his family and attorney notified police that they feared Crawford was committing another crime, he was arrested. Crawford told authorities he did not remember the incident but later led them to the body buried in leaves in a wooded area. Crawford later was tried and convicted on the original charges in the rape and aggravated assault case and sentenced to 66 years in prison.

Some workers are exempt from minimum wage BY ALAN FRAM Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Some low-paid workers won’t benefit even if a long-shot Democratic proposal to raise the federal minimum wage becomes law. More than a dozen categories of jobs are exempt from the minimum, currently $7.25 an hour. Those exclusions, rooted in labor law history, run from some workers with disabilities to crews on fishing ships to casual baby sitters. Legislation sponsored by Sen. Tom Harkin, DIowa, would gradually raise the minimum to $10.10 by 2016. The Congressional Budget Office estimates it would mean higher earnings for 16.5 million workers — but also would cost 500,000 others their jobs. Harkin’s measure wouldn’t eliminate exemptions, including for live-in companions for the elderly, staffs of state and local elected officials and jobs at summer camps and seasonal amusement parks. The federal Bureau of Labor Statistics says

nearly 1.8 million hourly workers were paid below $7.25 last year — about 2 percent of the 76 million Americans earning hourly wages. An additional 1.5 million earned exactly $7.25. Some earning under that amount are covered by lower requirements. In one major category, wages for tipped employees such as waiters can be as low as $2.13 hourly, as long as their pay reaches the overall federal minimum when tips are included. Harkin’s measure would gradually raise the minimum for tipped workers to 70 percent of the minimum for most workers. Asked why he wasn’t eliminating more exemptions, Harkin said, “I’m having a hard enough time getting votes for the minimum wage” by itself. According to the statistics bureau, most people earning under $7.25 — nearly 1.1 million — work in food services and drinking establishments. The bureau and the Labor Department’s Wage and Hour Division said they had no figures on

how many workers were illegally paid less than $7.25. Though Democrats say higher-paid workers would help the economy by spending more, Republicans point to projections that an increase in the minimum wage could cost some workers their jobs. That negative prediction is based on the idea that higher wages would bring higher prices and therefore hurt the economy and employment — and also on an assumption that a minimum wage increase would lead some businesses to trim the number of low-paid workers. Harkin, whose bill is slated for Senate debate this month, said there has been “no push” from most exempted groups for minimum wage coverage. Of the excluded groups, the loudest objections have probably come from those representing the disabled. Employers receiving government certification can employ disabled people at below the minimum wage, paying whatever they determine reflects a worker’s pro-

ductivity. Most of these employees are mentally impaired and work in special workshops run by organizations like Goodwill and Easter Seals. The Labor Department’s Wage and Hour Division says 229,000 workers were certified for such wages last year. Groups representing disabled people say the figure is over 400,000. Either way, they are a small portion of the roughly 15 million disabled working-age Americans. Advocates for the disabled say the system, originally meant to encourage employers to hire such workers, is being abused by some organizations that underpay and inadequately train them. “This is a system that lives on the perception that these people cannot be productive,” said Anil Lewis, a top official with the National Federation of the Blind, which wants to repeal the special wages. But ending that program would mean many disabled workers “would not have the dignity, purpose and pride of a paycheck,” said Terry

Farmer, CEO of ACCSES, the trade group representing Goodwill and other groups employing disabled people. A long-time advocate for the disabled, Harkin said he is trying separate legislation to require employers who pay disabled workers below the minimum wage to provide better training for higher-salaried jobs. The federal minimum wage was created by the Fair Labor Standards Act in 1938. That New Deal measure also limited the work week — to 44 hours initially — and curbed child labor. When President Franklin Roosevelt signed the bill into law, the minimum was set at 25 cents an hour, mainly covering industrial jobs. To win crucial votes from Southern Democrats in Congress, Roosevelt agreed to exclude occupations like farm laborers and domestic workers, who were largely black. Also exempted were some other low-paying jobs that employed many women, including retail and many clerical workers.

Dems destroying Electoral College BY DICK MORRIS Columnist

A plan, now stealthily making its way through state legislatures with astonishing speed, would junk the Electoral College and award the presidency to the winner of the popular vote. The plan involves an interstate compact where states would commit to select electors pledged to vote for the national popular vote winner regardless of how their own state voted. When enough states pass this law – sufficient to cast 270 votes, a majority of the Electoral College, it will take effect. The Electoral College will become a vestigial anachronism. So far, nine states and D.C. have joined, casting 136 electoral votes – halfway to the 270 needed to put the compact into effect. The ratifying states are: Maryland, New Jersey, Illinois, Hawaii, Washington, Massachusetts, DC, Vermont, California and Rhode Island. Both houses in New York have passed it, and its on Governor Cuomo’s desk. It has already passed one house in: Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Michigan, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina and Oregon. These states, plus New York, represent 107 votes. Combined with the others, they are up to 243 votes. Who is pushing this? All of the ratifying states voted for President Obama, as did eight of the 10 one-house states. The movement is funded, in part, by the Center for Voting and Democracy, a George Soros-funded election group. Essentially, it is an end run around the regular constitutional amending process. Rather than get a two-thirds majority of each house of Congress and three-quarters of the states, this proposal would take effect when a simple majority approve it. Why are Democrats pushing this plan? Democrats usually see a smaller percentage of their people go to the polls than Republicans do. Under the electoral vote system, they figure why beat the drums to get a high turnout in New York City when the state will go Democrat anyway? But, if it’s the popular vote that matters, the big city machines can do their thing – with devastating impact. But are Democrats planning to go further and let noncitizens vote? If the National Popular Vote movement succeeds, there will be nothing to stop them. The U.S. Constitution does not require that the franchise be limited to citizens. It’s up to the states. If the popular vote is all that matters, won’t many blue states bulk up their popular vote totals by letting noncitizens vote? Historically, several states have let noncitizens to vote. The last to do so, Arkansas, repealed its law in 1926. The Harvard Political Review reminds us that noncitizen voting was once commonly accepted in the United States. California and other states have been moving to obliterate the difference between citizens and noncitizens, even voting to allow illegal immigrants serve on juries or become lawyers. Republicans need to kill this proposal, and they better move fast. Some small states are backing it because they are tired of all the attention being focused on swing states. But Republicans must stand firm and not yield to the temptation to support it. How can we stop the Democrats from ravaging our political system? The key battles are coming up in Arkansas and North Carolina. In both states, one house has passed the compact. We need to stand firm in these two red states and block the compact from taking effect. Republicans in Minnesota and Wisconsin, both blue states, need to stop ratification in their states. And, Republicans should focus on stopping the second house from ratification in those states where only one house has acted. Our democracy depends on it.

Prayer for today My Father, may I not miss my work through indifference and feel it is thy neglect of me. May I be reminded that the enrichment of life comes through persistency and being consistent, and may not be found on the idle paths of extravagant ways. Help me to take up my work with a willing spirit and give my best to it. Amen.

A verse to share “A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.” -- Proverbs 18:24

Cochran exudes determination, confidence STARKVILLE — The keynote speaker at the Golden Triangle’s premier annual fundraising event for the Boys Scouts of America never once mentioned the fact that he was engaged in a contested re-election campaign that is drawing national attention. Prior to the speech, Republican U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran was patient with old friends and well-wishers alike who interrupted his meal for a handshake or a bit of personal conversation. He posed good-naturedly with Scouts who wanted cell phone camera shots with the veteran senator. At the table during the meal, Cochran listened with genuine interest as friends talked about their children’s latest baseball exploits and observed at one point that dinner really quite good for banquet food -- and this from a man who has eaten a lot of banquet food over the course of his public service career. Cochran’s speech centered on the contributions the Scouting program has made in his own life. He spoke of a rare failure in pursuit of a merit badge as a boy. The lesson -- to always be fully prepared when one is engaging in a competition -- is one Cochran said has

stuck with him for life. He recounted earning his Eagle Scout rank in a Sid Salter troop at Byram - a fact Columnist still contained in his official Senate biography -and spoke of his belief the Scouting program remains a vibrant laboratory for helping young people build character. Cochran carried notes to the podium, but didn’t consult them. He spoke from heart. Cochran encouraged the Scouts to continue on their path, congratulated the adult volunteer Scouters, and thanked the donors to the BSA. Then he took his seat. No mention of a campaign, no mention of the stakes of his re-election bid and no corny or veiled appeal to those in the room who were very much attuned to the political realities of the 2014 election in Mississippi. Reporters attending the event engaged him about the campaign before and after the event, but what the Scouts and Scouters experienced was a laid back evening with a fellow traveler -- a salute to the Scouting program was

someone who had shared their experiences. The “ifs” of the Senate race in Mississippi in 2014 are momentous. If Cochran wins the race he’s favored to win and if the Republicans retake control of the U.S. Senate nationally, Cochran will once again be chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee. Given those facts, it would seem Cochran would be justified in at least a small amount of urgency, a bit of tension if not downright worry. But the fact is Cochran’s demeanor at the Scouting fundraiser to which he lent his name to benefit 1,300 Scouts in Calhoun, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Clay, Lowndes, Monroe, Noxubee, Oktibbeha, Webster and Winston counties was that of quiet determination and confidence. As part of the evening’s festivities after Cochran’s speech, the Pushmataha Area Council honored a number of military veterans, including the late Herbert Lamar Ellis, the late John E. Reed Sr., the late Thomas E. “Tommy” Tomlinson, modern era servicemen Jonathan Sappington and Andrew Rendon, and World War II veterans Bradford Freeman and V.J. Robinson, and Vietnam vet-

eran Gene Smith. Pvt. Bradford “Hickory Nut” Freeman of Caledonia is one of two surviving members of Company E (Easy Company) in 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, the outfit known as the “Band of Brothers.” They called him “Hickory Nut” because he was just that tough, so the story goes. Freeman, now 90 years young, walked proudly past a standing, applauding Cochran to receive an award from the Scouts along with the rest of the veterans. In a season increasingly dominated by scorched-earth politics, it was enjoyable to a man comfortable enough in his own political skin not to merely share a spotlight with old soldiers and young people, but to aggressively push the light toward them. Cochran, like his fellow veterans and his fellow Scouts, has more than a passing acquaintance with seeing what he believes to be his duty and rising to it. Those who suggest Cochran isnít prepared for the primary sprint simply arenít paying attention. (Daily Corinthian columnist Sid Salter is a syndicated statewide.

Rand Paul, situation room or dorm room? The oil-services company Halliburton is an old obsession of the anti-Bush left, and evidently of Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul. The libertarian standardbearer and almost-certain Republican presidential candidate suggested to audiences a few years ago that Vice President Dick Cheney’s views on the Iraq War were influenced by his time as CEO at Halliburton. Cheney had opposed going into Iraq during the Persian Gulf War under the first President George Bush; then, after a stint at Halliburton, he supported going into Iraq under the second President Bush. Q.E.D. Asked about the Halliburton charge on ABC’s “This Week With George Stephanopoulos,” Paul softened his accusation by saying he wasn’t questioning Cheney’s motives, but he didn’t recant. In his dark suspicions about Cheney, Paul is effectively to the left of most mainstream Democrats, who may disagree with and even hate the former vice president, but don’t think he supported a major war as a favor to his erstwhile company. Paul’s belief that the Iraq War may have been

about padding a corporate bottom line echoes charges of “war profiteering” that Rich have been a Lowry staple of the left. National Rand Paul Review is a goodnatured, thoughtful and creative politician, and the GOP benefits from having such a high-profile figure who doesn’t look or feel like a typical Republican. But he will soon be running for an office where your view of the world matters profoundly, and his instincts sometimes seem more appropriate to a dorm-room bull session than the Situation Room. There is no doubt that the Paulite persuasion on foreign policy has made extraordinary inroads in the Republican Party. Rand’s father, Ron Paul, was a reliable punching bag on nationalsecurity issues during presidential debates in 2008. He got a more respectful hearing in 2012. Now, his son’s noninterventionism is closer to the GOP norm that would have seemed possible in,

say, 2004. But there are limits to how far Rand Paul can push it. The default position of the GOP is still toward strength, and the party will instinctively recoil from the distorted view of America implicit in some of Paul’s more impolitic statements. If we launched the Iraq War for corporate profits, we have a poisonously corrupt government that is a threat to world peace. If we caused Japan to react angrily with ill-considered sanctions prior to Pearl Harbor, as Paul said in 2012, perhaps we were reaping what we sowed in what is usually regarded as one of the most notorious sneak attacks of all time. If we are guilty of tweaking Russia while it secures a traditional sphere of influence, as Paul said when the Crimea crisis first broke out, it’s no wonder that Vladimir Putin lashes out. You can hear in all this a note of the blame-America-first libertarianism embraced by some Paulite thinkers and writers. Rand Paul himself is more circumspect. After the Japan comments surfaced, one of Paul’s advisers put out a statement in support of

World War II, which usually goes without saying. Paul quickly toughened up his rhetoric on Russia as Putin’s Crimea invasion unfolded. Paul likes to calls his foreign policy “realism,” but his record on Russia suggests the label is inapt. Last year, he thought what was wrong with President Barack Obama’s Syria policy was that we weren’t engaging the Russians enough. Earlier this year, he held out the Syria chemical-weapons deal as a model for future diplomacy. He thought the Russians were a partner for peace, right on the cusp of them launching a war. You don’t have to be a war profiteer to consider this dewy-eyed foolishness. Barack Obama’s can’t-weall-get-along naivete didn’t hurt him in his primary fight in 2008, but he was running in the other party. Rand Paul is running in a party that, while chastened on foreign policy, still has a hawkish reflex – and not because it is beholden to Halliburton.

Stocks close higher for third straight day Investors drove stock prices to their highest level in a week Wednesday, encouraged by a crop of corporate earnings and reassuring U.S. and Chinese economic data. Major U.S. stock indexes notched their third day of gains in a row. Yahoo and Delta Air Lines were among the companies posting big gains. The gains were broad; for every stock that declined, nearly four rose. The market is coming back from a steep drop at the end of last week led by Internet and biotechnology stocks. That move away from some of the riskier, highpriced stocks that drove down the market is nearly, if not completely done now, said Jim Russell, senior equity strategist at U.S. Bank Wealth Management. “We did think that last week’s downside volatility would be limited, and we’re very heartened to see a rebound for the first three days this week,� he said. Stocks started climbing from the opening bell on Wednesday as investors cheered the latest quarterly earnings report from Yahoo. The Web pioneer reported late Tuesday that it is making most of its money from its stakes in two Asian Internet companies: China’s Alibaba Group and Yahoo Japan. The market also welcomed a Chinese gov-

ernment report showing that the world’s secondlargest economy grew 7.4 percent from a year earlier in the JanuaryMarch quarter.  

Defense: Suspect’s family key to case BOSTON — Lawyers for Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev said Wednesday that understanding Tsarnaev’s family is key to their case, offering a glimpse of the defense strategy as they prepare to defend him against charges that carry the possibility of the death penalty. Tsarnaev’s lawyers have previously indicated that they are planning to argue that he was influenced by his 26-year-old brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who authorities say was his co-conspirator. On Wednesday, the defense suggested that they will delve deeper into the dynamic of the Tsarnaev family, including the relationships the brothers had with their two sisters and their parents. Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed in a shootout with police several days after the April 15, 2013, bombing. Dzhokhar is awaiting trial on 30 federal charges. Attorney David Bruck focused on Tsarnaev’s family while asking a judge to lift special restrictions on Tsarnaev in prison, including FBI monitoring when his two sisters visit him. “I don’t think there is anybody that has seen

what has unfolded in the last year and a day who doesn’t understand that if the government’s indictment is true — this is about a family — and the search for an understanding of what happened is in large measure a story of this family and the relationships between people in it,� Bruck said.  

Detroit still needs $350M from state DETROIT — Pressure was building Wednesday for Michigan lawmakers to commit $350 million to Detroit pensions, a day after the city reached tentative agreements with pension funds and a retiree group to reduce payouts. The city has an $816 million pledge from foundations, philanthropists and Gov. Rick Snyder to shore up pension funds and prevent the sale of city-owned art as part of Detroit’s strategy for exiting the largest public bankruptcy in U.S. history. But the state’s share still hasn’t been nailed down, and some in the Republican-controlled Legislature aren’t sold yet. “It’s not going to be easy because it’s so easily demagogued,� said House Speaker Jase Bolger, R-Marshall, who supports the plan. “There will be an important balance between ensuring Detroit’s success on the positive side and ensuring Detroit doesn’t lapse back into trouble on the cautionary side.�

Biloxi’s White House Hotel set to reopen BILOXI — The historic beachfront White House Hotel in Biloxi is scheduled to reopen in July. Barrington Development LLC of Ridgeland bought the property in 2013 from White House Properties, held by the Love family for decades. The landmark hotel had sat vacant and dilapidated on the beach front for 24 years, and ended up on the city’s blighted properties list. It also was severely damaged in Hurricane Katrina in 2005. It is located along U.S. Highway 90 near Keesler Air Force Base. The Sun Herald reports Jerry Creel, community development director, told the city council that the developer is already talking about an expansion. The restoration plan included renovating the exterior of the building, using as much of the salvaged materials as possible; landscaping the property, including preserving the oak trees; and installing a fence around the site that will match the time period. The White House Hotel was named after long-time owner Walter A. White, a Mississippi lawyer who moved to the Gulf Coast in 1890 and would later become a judge. The White family opened the property as a boarding house in 1899. Additions to the original structure were built in 1927 and 1929. The hotel’s main property was originally the site of the successful

Gorenflo Oyster Company, which was destroyed in an 1893 hurricane.  

Silver Airways to stay in Greenville for now GREENVILLE — The U.S. Department of Transportation won’t let Silver Airways abandon air service to Greenville until a replacement airline is found. The Delta Democrat Times reports the government notified the city of Greenville about its decision Tuesday. Silver Airways began service at Greenville MidDelta Airport in October 2012, following Delta Air Lines’ decision to end flights into and out of Greenville. Silver Airways on April 9 announced it had informed the Department of Transportation that it would be discontinuing service in Greenville, Hattiesburg, Meridian and Tupelo as well as in Muscle Shoals, Ala. The airline is receiving a $7 million annual sub-

sidy through the federal Essential Air Service program to serve the five cities.  

Oxford planners urge hospital sound plan OXFORD — The Oxford Planning Commission is asking officials with the city and Baptist Memorial Hospital to meet with residents at the nearby Bickerstaff Condominiums about noise from construction of a new medical center. The commission told hospital officials a wood fence will not reduce the noise from the construction of the new Baptist Memorial Hospital-North Mississippi and a road extension. The Oxford Eagle reports Baptist CEO Bill Henning has proposed adding storm windows to the second story windows on the back and on the sides of each condo unit and erecting a double-sided wood fence with an interior layer of mass loaded vinyl.

Dress codes: What are the limits? BY MARTHA IRVINE AP National Writer

EVANSTON, Ill. — They’re called leggings — popular fashion items that are tight-fitting pants to some, and glorified tights to others. Younger girls often wear them as pants with little fuss. But as those same girls approach middle school, leggings have become a clothing accessory that’s increasingly controversial — and seemingly, the favorite new target of the school dress code. Some schools have banned leggings outright. Others have set limits. Haven Middle School in Evanston, just north of Chicago, took what turned out to be a contentious stand: If you wear leggings, you need to have a shirt or skirt over them that reaches at least down to your fingertips. In other words, girls need to cover their behinds. It might seem a reasonable enough request at a time when school dress codes — and even school uniforms — are common and often supported by teachers and administrators who frequently complain about students who push the limits of good taste, and the parents who let them (and may even push those limits themselves). But how far is too far? And do schools sometimes go too far in pushing back? Judges have tended to side with schools when safety is a concern. For example, a federal court agreed with a school district in Morgan Hill, Calif., after some high school students were told not to wear American flag Tshirts on the Mexican holiday of Cinco de Mayo in 2010. The worry was that the shirts would incite conflict with the school’s many Hispanic students. When safety isn’t at is-

“It puts everyone on the same playing field when they’re at school.” Kitty Rotella Principal of St. Mark’s Episcopal School sue, says Perry Zirkel, a professor of education and law at Lehigh University in Pennsylvania, the courts tend to throw the cases back to the schools and parents, so they can come up with solutions together. It’s not always easy, since many people have a different notion of what’s appropriate and what’s not — and what’s distracting, and what’s not. At Haven Middle School, there has been a lot of confusion. Just a few weeks ago, the school’s own website said leggings were banned, when apparently they were not, school officials now say. Then there was the matter of yoga pants, which are tight like leggings, but flared at the bottom. Did the fingertip rule also apply to those types of pants, especially when no one could tell the difference if they were tucked into boots, which is also a popular style among teens? The discussions at school meetings have sometimes bordered on silly. But few disagree that there are serious issues at hand here — among them, whether girls are being shamed and unnecessarily embarrassed at a time when they’re already starting to feel more aware of their changing bodies. Clearly frustrated with the debate, Haven Middle School teachers posted this statement on the school’s website to explain the reasoning behind the leggings policy: “We believe, through years of experience and professionalism, that it is

essential to our school’s climate that we set a standard of expectation and decorum.” They denied that they acted because leggings distract boys, as has been alleged by some parents. “The notion that girls’ clothing affects the way boys learn is not, and never will be, our message,” the statement said. However, parents who’ve attended school meetings, and students who dislike the policy, seem most troubled by an inconsistency in enforcement. They claim that some girls are “dresscoded” more than others, perhaps because they are more physically developed. They say, for example, that they have heard comments like, “If you were smaller, you could wear this and it would be fine.” “I’ve also seen skinny, smaller girls walking around in leggings every week and never, ever getting caught for it,” says Kate Green, a seventhgrader at Haven who concedes that she probably fits that category herself. She’s had warnings, she said, but never more than that, when other girls have had to put their gym shorts over their outfits if they’re in dress code violation. Parents Kevin and Juliet Bond wrote an open letter to the district after their 13-year-old daughter Lilly sensed unfairness and asked them to address it. “It’s not like these girls are dressing up like street corner gals, right? I mean, it’s sweatshirts and comfy pants,” says Juliet Bond,

an author and professor of women’s studies at a Chicago liberal arts college. Members of the advisory board say the dress code policy will be reviewed for the next school year. The key, school board member Suni Kartha said, would be to come up with a clear, consistent policy with as little “judgment” as possible. “I don’t think anybody ever had the intention for the policy to ever shame any of the students, but I understand that that’s the effect,” Kartha said. There are those who argue that the best way to handle the dress code dilemma is to mandate uniforms, such as the blue pants and white shirts worn by Chicago Public Schools students. “It puts everyone on the same playing field when they’re at school,” says Kitty Rotella, principal of St. Mark’s Episcopal School, a private school for preschool through eighth grade in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. When her students have the occasional out-ofuniform day, she says, she feels like they’re more distracted, even if there’s no attire she deems inappropriate. But others question the value of any strict codes. “We were always pro dress code. Now I think, ‘Is it really that important?’” says Jamie Renfro. She’s the mother of thirdgrader Kamryn Renfro, who recently gained national attention when she decided to shave her head to support her 11-year-old friend Delaney Clements, who has cancer and lost her hair after chemotherapy. After she shaved her head, 9-year-old Kamryn was suspended from her public charter school in Grand Junction, Colo. — though the school’s board quickly reversed the decision.

End of Muslim surveillance program applauded BY JAKE PEARSON AND TOM HAYS Associated Press

NEW YORK — Muslim groups and civil liberties advocates applauded the decision by New York Police Department officials to disband a controversial unit that tracked the daily lives of Muslims as part of efforts to detect terrorism threats, but they said there were concerns about whether other problematic practices remained in place. The Demographics Unit, conceived with the help of a CIA agent working with the NYPD, assembled databases on where Muslims lived, shopped, worked and prayed. Plainclothes officers infiltrated Muslim student groups, put informants in mosques, monitored sermons and catalogued Muslims in New York who adopted new, Americanized surnames. NYPD spokesman Stephen Davis confirmed Tuesday that detectives assigned to the unit had been transferred to other duties within the department’s Intelligence Division. Linda Sarsour, the executive director of the

“This was definitely a part of the big puzzle that we’re trying to get dismantled.” Linda Sarsour Executive director of the Arab American Association of New York Arab American Association of New York, said she was among a group of advocates at a private meeting last week with police at which the department’s new intelligence chief, John Miller, first indicated the unit — renamed the Zone Assessment Unit — wasn’t viable. She applauded the decision but said there’s still concern about the police use of informants to infiltrate mosques without specific evidence of crime. “This was definitely a part of the big puzzle that we’re trying to get dismantled,” Sarsour said. But, she added, “This doesn’t necessarily prove to us yet that these very problematic practices are going to end.” Another person at the meeting, Fahd Ahmed, legal and policy director of Desis Rising Up and

Moving, called the decision “a small step.” He questioned what had happened to the information gathered by the unit. “The concern wasn’t just about the fact that this data was being collected secretly — it was about the fact that this data was being collected at all,” he said. The NYPD’s decision to disband the unit was first reported by The New York Times. An ongoing review of the division by new Police Commissioner William Bratton found that the same information collected by the unit could be better collected through direct contact with community groups, officials said. In a statement, Mayor Bill de Blasio, a Democrat, called the move “a critical step forward in easing tensions between the police and the communities they serve, so that our cops and our citizens can help one another go after the real bad guys.” Since taking office, de Blasio has taken other steps toward changing how the police department operates, like ending the city’s appeal of a judge’s ruling ordering major reforms to the department’s implementation of a controversial street stop policy including the implementation of the first-ever inspector general for the NYPD. After a series of stories by The Associated Press

detailing the extent of the NYPD’s surveillance of Muslims, two civil rights lawsuits were filed challenging the activities as unconstitutional because they focused on people’s religion, national origin and race. Former Police Commissioner Ray Kelly had defended the surveillance tactics, saying officers observed legal guidelines while attempting to create an early warning system for terrorism. But in a deposition made public in 2012, an NYPD chief testified that the unit’s work had never generated a lead or triggered a terrorism investigation in the previous six years. In Washington, 34 members of Congress had demanded a federal investigation into the NYPD’s actions. Attorney General Eric Holder said he was disturbed by reports about the operations, and the Department of Justice said it was reviewing complaints received from Muslims and their supporters. The AP’s reporting also prompted an investigation by the CIA’s inspector general. That internal inquiry concluded that the CIA, which is prohibited from domestic spying, hadn’t broken any laws, but it criticized the agency for allowing an officer assigned to the NYPD to operate without sufficient supervision. The Center for Constitutional Rights in New York and the California-based Muslim Advocates, which represented eight Muslims in a 2012 lawsuit challenging the spying program, welcomed the unit’s dismantling but expressed concern it wouldn’t stop the surveillance in Muslim communities.

Students experience a taste in real world budgeting

Students at Alcorn Central High School learned about budgeting and personal finance through a real world budgeting simulation led by Mary Linda Moore from the Mississippi State University Extension Service.

“Act your wage!” Students of ACHS had the opportunity to attempt just that on April 1. Mary Linda Moore, family resource management specialist from the MSU Extension Service, presented the Real World budgeting simulation to the students of Mrs. Bridges, Mrs. Burgess, Mr. Derrick, Mrs. Lambert and Mrs. Weaver. The participants were given a hypothetical family situation with a monthly income and were then required to make spending decisions related to housing, transportation, groceries, clothing, medical care, entertainment, savings and other expenses. If an individual ran out of money, he/ she would have to choose less expensive options or get a second job. Integrating financial literacy across the curriculum is essential when considering these statistics from Jumpstart Coalition for Financial Literacy: • Young people usually determine

their attitudes about handling money by the time they finish 5th grade. • People in the 18-24 age bracket spend over 30 percent of their monthly income on debt repayment. • The fastest growing group declaring bankruptcy is young adults, ages 20-24. • Almost 10 percent of college students drop out of school because of debt and/or financial pressures. When asked what they had learned from this activity, students offered the following quotes: “It’s not what you earn; it’s what you spend,” said Makayla. “A budget would tell my money where to go instead of where it went,” added Brooklyn. A student who chose to remain anonymous said, “I found out what it’s like to be my parents.” This simulation helped the young adults understand how personal behaviors and decisions affect a person’s finances and quality of life.

Supreme Court plans to weigh challenge to ban on campaign lies BY HOPE YEN & SAM HANANEL Associated Press

WASHINGTON — As political campaigns begin to heat up, the Supreme Court is deciding whether false accusations and mudslinging made during an election can be punished as a crime. Addressing an issue of negative campaigning that now may be a fact of life in American politics, justices will consider a challenge to an Ohio law that bars false statements about political candidates. The case being heard next week has attracted national attention, with least 15 other states having similar laws. Groups across the political spectrum are criticizing the law as a restriction on the First Amendment right to free speech. Even Ohio’s attorney general, Republican Mike DeWine, says he has serious concerns about the law. His office filed two briefs in the case, one from staff lawyers obligated to defend the state and another expressing DeWine’s personal view that the law “may chill constitutionally protected political speech.” “The thing we see time and time again in political campaigns is that candidates use the law to game the system by filing a complaint,” DeWine said in an interview with The

Associated Press. In an attempt at humor, satirist P.J. O’Rourke and the libertarian Cato Institute filed a widely circulated brief ridiculing the law and defending political smear tactics as a cornerstone of American democracy. O’Rourke’s brief celebrates a history of dubious campaign remarks including President Richard Nixon’s “I am not a crook,” President George H.W. Bush’s “Read my lips: no new taxes!” and President Barack Obama’s “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it.” The Ohio law makes it illegal to knowingly or recklessly make false statements about a candidate during an election. The high court is not expected to rule directly on the constitutional issue, instead focusing on the narrower question of whether the law can be challenged before it is actually enforced. The case began during the 2010 election, when the Susan B. Anthony List, an anti-abortion group, planned to launch a billboard campaign accusing then-Democratic Rep. Steven Driehaus of supporting taxpayerfunded abortion because he backed President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul. Driehaus urged the Ohio Elections Commis-

the law, creating a chilling effect on speech that gives the groups a right to challenge the law without waiting for a ruling from the election commission. This election season, the anti-abortion group says it’s moving ahead with plans to purchase billboards in opposition to Democratic U.S. senators in Arkansas, Louisiana and North Carolina; those states have similar laws banning false campaign speech. But the Susan B. Anthony List is declining to run billboard ads in Ohio until the case is resolved. “The risks quite frankly are too high,” said the group’s president, Marjorie Dannenfelser. The Obama administration backs that argument,

sion to block the ads, arguing that the proposed billboard was false under Ohio law. Given the threat of legal action, the billboard owner declined to run the ad. Driehaus eventually lost his re-election bid and withdrew his complaint before it could be fully heard. The Susan B. Anthony List then challenged the state law as unconstitutional, but a federal judge ruled against the group, saying it hadn’t suffered any harm in the case and thus didn’t have standing to sue. The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati agreed. The Susan B. Anthony List argues that it continues to face the threat of prosecution under

even though White House officials have steadfastly denied the proposition that the health care law allows abortions funded by taxpayer dollars. The administration says a “credible threat of prosecution” will chill the Susan B. Anthony List from engaging in “the very type of speech to which the First Amendment has its fullest and most urgent application.” Driehaus said the work of the Ohio elections commission is needed “to call people into account when spreading malicious lies.” “Not every candidate has millions of dollars to

spend on TV ads, and it’s difficult to get the truth out, especially when constituents are bombarded with messages,” Driehaus said from Swaziland, where he is a Peace Corps director. Lawyers for the state of Ohio assert there is no “credible threat of prosecution” in the case because it never went beyond the very preliminary stages of review before it was dismissed. The fact that the Susan B. Anthony List might use the same language again is too vague to give the group standing to challenge the law, the state argues.

The Biblical Measure of Obedience

By Mike Swims As a parent of a two year old toddler who is coming into a personality of his own, I am learning that there is a difference between obedience and agreeability. I’ve learned the hard way that my son’s obedience isn’t measured by the number of commands he obeys willingly. Instead I see this as the measure of his agreeability. Rather, his daily obedience is measured by the decisions he makes when what he wants differs from what his mother or I want him to do. Agreeability is when he does what we ask immediately without a fuss, yet obedience is when he does what we ask though he may not like—or understand—why we ask it of him. This is also how God measures obedience in us. I think that one of the reasons God insists on baptism by immersion (Acts 2:38) is because it accurately represents His love and forgiveness toward us--It’s overwhelming! Sprinkling won’t do because He doesn’t sprinkle a little bit of forgiveness on us—It’s a deluge of forgiveness (Acts 22:16). And ignoring baptism would be like ignoring God’s love. We are baptized by immersion because it’s at the very moment the water envelops us that God’s love and forgiveness overwhelms us (1 Peter 3:21). “Or do you not know that as many of us as were _____ into Christ ___________ were _______________ into His _______________? Therefore we were ____________ with Him through __________________ into ____________, that just as Christ was _______________ from the dead by the _______________ of the Father, even so _____________ also should ______________ in ____________of _____________.”-Romans 6:3-4

Big APPetite Hungry customers don’t want to wait in long lines to pay their bill. Restaurants are coming up with ways so they don’t have to. Credit Suisse analyst Karen Holthouse says 2014 is on track to be “the year of the app,” as more restaurants test or launch mobile payment and ordering options. Although they all won’t benefit to the same degree, she says they all risk losing millennial customers if they fail to invest in a digital strategy. Starbucks is an early leader. Its customers can use the Starbucks smartphone app to pay for orders, and leave a tip for their barista, at all of its U.S. locations. The coffee chain says more than 14 percent of all U.S. purchases are made using a mobile device. Why does that matter? Starbucks executives say customers who sign up for the app tend to visit more often.

Mobile money A variety of food chains from Starbucks to Chipotle are rolling out mobile services for their customers.

Eye on GE Wall Street anticipates that General Electric’s earnings and revenue fell slightly in the first quarter. The company, due to report its latest quarterly results today, benefited in the same quarter last year from the sale of NBC Universal and sales of aircraft engines and transportation equipment.

Dear Annie: Several years ago, I went to a massage parlor and paid a woman for sex. This same woman recently got a job in the office where I work. This is an unbelievable coincidence. We get along pretty well as co-workers and are respectful toward each other. But it’s awkward when we bump into each other in the narrow hallways or for the occasional elevator ride. I have been carrying around a letter in my pocket for a long time. It is not a love letter. The woman is married, and I am not interested in her. The message in the letter is simply to reassure her that I have never gossiped about her to anyone, especially our co-workers. I want to put her mind at ease. I’d give her this letter, but I’m afraid of her reaction. Should I just leave things alone? — Sleepless Dear Sleepless: Yes. Please. In time, she will realize that you can be trusted not to ruin her work reputation, and she will relax. Her concerns in the meantime are not your business, and we doubt she would appreciate a reminder of your encounter. Behave around her as you would any other co-worker. Your awkwardness only adds to her discomfort.

Annie’s Mailbox Dear Annie: I belong to a small group of friends who gather often at one another’s homes. One of our friends recently moved into a larger “dream home” and now wants gatherings at her place more often. The trouble is, they have two cats and for some odd reason have placed the litter box directly in front of the toilet. Most of the time, the box is not clean. It smells and can be downright nasty. Since they live a good distance from town, it’s difficult for us not to use her bathroom before we leave. We were recently invited to another gathering there. We turned it down. Should we address this head on or ignore it and hold our breath? We can’t refuse all celebrations at their home. — Not a Party Pooper Dear Party: Here’s what you say: “We love the gatherings in your lovely home, but there is a problem with the litter box being placed in front of the commode. None of us is comfortable using your bathroom. We don’t want to hurt

your feelings, but we thought you would want to know.” Dear Annie: I totally agree with your advice to “Omaha, Neb.,” who wants to grow old with his wife, who is 100 pounds overweight. Three years ago, I weighed 280 pounds, was Type II diabetic and had high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I walked into an Overeaters Anonymous meeting and found loving support and people I could relate to. A month later, I joined Weight Watchers because I liked the diet, and a year after that, I added a structured exercise program. Today, I am 90 pounds lighter, my numbers for diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol are all in the normal range. I still have some weight to lose, but I know that with the help of OA and the other changes I’ve made in my life, I will reach my goal. I no longer hide my feelings about my weight, and I have the support I need to keep myself strong and healthy. I hope that “Omaha’s” wife realizes what a caring and concerned husband she has and accepts the support he offers. I also hope she finds her own way back to a healthy lifestyle. There is help out there, but she needs to seek it out. — Thankful in Florida

Coming Up In The Daily Corinthian Developers of the new SoCo District in downtown Corinth recently held a well-attended public meeting to discuss their intentions. See the story coming Sunday.

D E A R ABBY: I am a 34-yearold wife and mother of four. I’m concerned about my Abigail husband. He is 44 Van Buren and drinks at home evDear Abby ery evening after work. I don’t mind him having a few cans of beer, but he drinks between six and 12 a day. He refuses to see a doctor for checkups or when he is sick. I am worried about his health. The drinking could have an impact, and I would like him to have a physical exam to put my mind at ease. I tell my husband I want him to take care of himself to live longer for our children’s sake (our youngest is 4). At times, we argue about it, and I’m tired of fighting over his drinking. His response is, “At least I do it at home and not at the bar.” I think he is being selfish and thinking only of himself. He talks about “pride.” How can I get him to cut down on his drinking or see a doctor as needed? -- WORRIED WIFE IN GUAM DEAR WIFE: Your husband is an alcoholic. He may not want to see a doctor because he knows what the doctor will tell him. It is

important that you understand you cannot control another person’s behavior, and the only person who can “get” your husband to stop drinking or cut down is him. For your own emotional wellbeing, I’m advising you to contact Al-Anon. Al-Anon is a fellowship of family members and friends of alcoholics, and it was created to help people just like you. Visit Al-AnonFamilyGroups. org, call 888-4AL-ANON or email wso@al-anon.org. You may also want to contact your department of mental health services for guidance. I can’t guarantee that it will help with your husband’s illness -- because alcoholism is one -- but it will help you to cope.   DEAR ABBY: I’m 13 and in middle school. We have a program called an iPad Pilot Program in which students are given an iPad for a year to use in daily classroom activities. I’m a responsible honor student, yet somehow some scratches appeared on it one day. My parents are really tight with money. I’m afraid if I tell them, I’ll get in trouble. I have some video games I don’t play anymore that I can sell to fix the scratches, but if I do, my parents will find out. I guess I don’t want them to be upset or think I’m irresponsible. Please tell me what to do. -- IN A BIND DEAR IN A BIND: Some wear

and tear on items that are issued to students is to be expected. Stop stalling and tell your parents what happened. They are going to find out eventually, and it is better that they hear it from you.   DEAR ABBY: I recently moved into a lovely house located not far from a funeral home. From time to time, funeral processions pass by my house. Is there a way for an outsider to quietly pay respects without making the people in the procession uncomfortable? I feel bad ignoring them and just going about my business. I don’t wear hats, or I’d remove it. I’m also not Catholic, so the sign of the cross doesn’t seem appropriate. Any ideas? -- RESPECTFUL IN NEW JERSEY DEAR RESPECTFUL: While no gesture is required, if you happen to be outside when a funeral procession passes by, pause from what you’re doing and place your right hand over your heart to acknowledge the mourners’ grief. I’m sure your thoughtfulness will be appreciated. (Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.)

Horoscopes ARIES (March 21-April 19). You want to be the best, and you will make every effort to occupy the top position. If you don’t get there today, call it a noble effort regardless of how you place. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Today’s project is complicated, with many moving parts. You make it look easy. Your ability to balance several things at once makes you an invaluable asset to your group. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There are those who think you should suffer for your art or work. But if you’ve already suffered through your adolescence, consider that you’ve done enough suffering for a lifetime and take it easy on yourself. CANCER (June 22-July 22). As you ponder your next move, remember that the investment of education is one that no one can take away from you. Choose your area of study very carefully, and you’ll never regret learning. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It will

serve you to believe unreasonable things that most people wouldn’t consider to be true. By your thinking, if they haven’t been proved false, the possibilities remain. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll be dealing in your material assets. Your choice will be between spending, saving or giving of what you have. Keep in mind that each of these choices ends in loss; it’s just a matter of timing. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Someone has knocked themselves out for you. If you haven’t properly shown appreciation for this, do so now, and your personal life becomes instantly stable and fulfilling. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When people make decisions together, there’s a chance the result will be a compromise that suits no one. If there’s a better way, you’ll think of it this afternoon.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Maybe you can judge a book by its cover and a movie by its poster. But you can’t judge a book by its movie. You’ll have the choice of a long journey or the shortcut that gives a mere taste of the whole experience. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You can’t lose when you sacrifice in the name of love. A sacrifice for love makes you a richer person regardless of whether you ever get back what was sacrificed. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Support your mind by giving it the conditions it needs to work best. Sleep, nutrition, fresh air and sunshine will be involved. Also required: distance from a certain tedious experience. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The future holds surprises. Treat everyone fairly. Everyone. Over time, friends have a way of becoming enemies, and enemies have been known to join forces as true friends.

• The Indians’ Asdrubal Cabrera should expect to see a steady diet of right-handed relievers this season. At least until he proves that he can adjust to righties. The shortstop is batting a respectable .292 in 24 at-bats against left-handed pitching, but an anemic .083 vs. righthanders. • Texas manager Ron Washington has called on journeyman infielder Josh Wilson to make seven starts this season, five at second base, two at third. Four of those seven starts have come against left-handed pitching, and there are sure to be more opportunities. Wilson, who carries a .227 career batting average over seven seasons with eight different franchises, is 7-for-10 off lefties so far this season. He’s yet to find a hit in 11 at-bats off of righties in 2014. • Most early reviews of MLB’s instant replay system are less than positive. Two plays last Saturday in key divisional games appeared to have been missed, even after the replay review. The Nats’ Nate McLouth appeared to be safe on a close play at first as MASN, who broadcasts the Nats’ games had what most would consider a conclusive view of the play. Evidently, the same view wasn’t available at the New York MLB umpire center where plays are reviewed. In the Boston-New York game at Yankee Stadium, Boston infielder Xander Bogaerts held a tag on runner Dean Anna after his slide into second base. As he popped up out of his slide, Anna’s foot came off the base and was caught on camera by Fox. Again, evidently, the folks in New York didn’t see that replay and allowed Anna to remain on second. While many MLB officials refer to this as a “three-year rollout” fans are getting a tad impatient as they watch definitive replays in their living rooms, but the hi-tech MLB system can’t get it right.

Carlos Beltran, New York One of the newest Yankees, Beltran introduced himself to Yankee fans with a .423 batting average last week and 1.387 OPS. He drove in six runs and scored seven. Among his seven extra-base hits were three homers. Beltran’s first experience in the Boston-New York rivalry yielded six hits over the four games, including five on Saturday and Sunday with a homer and double in each of the final two games, both New York wins.

Brew Crew off to best start in more than 20 years. 5-0 vs. Diamondbacks; 4-4 against everyone else. Bullpen by committee? Three saves by three different pitchers. Steady Redbirds yet to win or lose three in a row. Took two of three at Cincy but were outscored by Reds 13-7. Tigers and opponents batting .253. Won 30 of last 40 against the Nats. Tim Hudson has been a huge boost to San Fran’s pitching. Should Nats admit that Braves are their daddy? Outhomered by opponents 10-5. Dropped three tight ones at Milwaukee. Fill-in closer Shawn Kelley saves two of three wins over Boston. Scored just 15 runs in six games vs. A’s. Anxiously awaiting prognosis of Dustin Pedroia’s wrist injury. Garrett Richards and Tyler Skaggs are a combined 3-0. Starting pitchers have 1.60 WHIP and 5.19 ERA. DP combo of Utley and Rollins own 39% of Phils’ RBIs. Pitchers holding opponents to .208 average. 22 extra-base hits fewest in majors. Outhit by opp. .267-.240 and outslugged .437-.373. Pitchers are clutch with RISP and two outs; BAA: .068. Lead majors in runs, but only Arizona has allowed more. Batting average of .207 is last in NL, 4.97 ERA ranks 13th. Opponents clobber it at a .352 clip with RISP and two outs. Melky Cabrera leads team with 36 total bases, but yet to walk. Last in majors with a -32 run differential. Batting just .155 with runners in scoring position. Only team stuck below Mendoza Line with .189 average. Anthony Rizzo and Starling Castro solid building blocks. After a quick start, Fish have dropped last seven.

St. Louis at Washington The two teams met in the 2012 NLDS and the Nationals were one out away from advancing to the NLCS. A dramatic comeback allowed the Redbirds to advance. The two teams are among the leading contenders in the NL again this season. Both clubs have excellent starting pitching, but their offenses have gotten off to sluggish starts in 2014. The four-game set begins on Thursday. Washington ace Stephen Strasburg will face the Cardinals’ Shelby Miller in the finale on Sunday. Los Angeles Angels at Detroit The Angels and Tigers began the years believing they could play in the World Series this fall. The Angels have disappointed fans the past two seasons, but seemed poised to break through this summer. Former MVP Josh Hamilton was off to a torrid start before injuring his thumb sliding into first base. He’ll likely miss a couple of months. The Tigers will have the edge in the bullpen with closer Joe Nathan off to a nice start. New York Yankees at Tampa Bay The AL East rivalry doesn’t have the same intensity that the New York-Boston matchup carries, but don’t tell the Rays this isn’t a huge rivalry. Most experts believe the AL East will be settled by fewer than three games among four teams this season with both the Rays and Yankees in the thick of the race. The pitching matchups are not necessarily marquee names, but expect close, low-scoring affairs.

It’s Our Time to Shine It’s difficult to predict which rookies will emerge this summer and enjoy consistent success throughout the season. Many superior talents — such as Archie Bradley of the Diamondbacks and George Springer of Houston — are still toiling in the minor leagues, waiting for the call from the big club that will most certainly come some time this summer. Here are our projections for the best rookie seasons in 2014.

Catcher The Angels’ pitching has not been too stingy so far this season, but Wilson was terrific last week. In 15 innings he allowed just three runs, 10 hits and four walks. He struck out 16 and earned a couple of wins. He induced 21 ground-outs.

Josmil Pinto, Minnesota The native of Venezuela showed enough last season that the Twins were willing to move All-Star catcher Joe Mauer to first base permanently. Pinto ended the week with seven home runs in 102 major league at-bats. Travis d’Arnaud, New York Mets

First Base

Justin Upton, Atlanta Reminiscent of 2013, Upton is off to a fast start this month for the Braves. Last week, the left fielder batted .591 with four homers, eight RBIs and eight runs. The Nationals certainly felt his presence. In the three-game sweep over Washington, Upton was 8-for-10 with five RBIs and six runs.

Jose Abreu, Chicago White Sox While it seemed a bit odd that the Sox would add another first base/DH type, Abreu, a native of Cuba, has been a run producer early this season. He’s currently tied for the RBI leadership. Jonathan Singleton, Houston

Second Base Aaron Harang, Atlanta The righthander continues to be a pleasant surprise for Atlanta fans this season. In two starts last week, Harang allowed just two runs, one in each outing. His offense let him down in a 4-0 loss against the Mets in which he allowed just two hits over six innings. But the bats responded well for his next outing against Washington. Again, Harang allowed a lone run over six innings. For the week, Harang struck out 14 and allowed seven hits and five walks.

Mark Appel, SP, Houston The No. 1 pick in 2013, Appel features an upper-90s fastball, sharp slider and changeup with impressive command at this stage of his career. Look for him in Houston in 2015.

Kolten Wong, St. Louis Since St. Louis drafted him in the first round in 2011, he has been ticketed for second base this season. His speed brings an element to the Cardinals’ offense that’s been lacking in recent years. The club believes the humbling pickoff that ended Game 4 of the World Series last year and his stand-up response will serve him well in the future. Javier Baez, Chicago Cubs Jonathan Schoop, Baltimore Marcus Semien, Chicago White Sox

Third Base Nick Castellanos, Detroit Castellanos’ development made the decision to trade Prince Fielder an easy

one. He’s reached base safely at least once in all but one start this season. Mike Olt, Chicago Cubs

Shortstop Xander Bogaerts, Boston Yes, he’s technically still a rookie. Bogaerts played a huge role in Boston’s championship run last season, starting all six World Series games at third base. Chris Owings, Arizona

Outfield George Springer, Houston The Astros will certainly be monitoring the service time clock, but there’s no other reason that Springer shouldn’t join Singleton in the Houston lineup this season. Oscar Taveras, St. Louis He’s been “the guy” for a few years now and has yet to turn the major league corner. His delay is primarily due to an injured ankle that required surgery last season. The Cardinals still believe he will be a star, but his coming out party (scheduled for this summer) may not happen until 2015.

Jackie Bradley Jr., Boston The Red Sox handed him the position last season, and he didn’t respond very well. He still has rookie status, and another year of maturity seems to have Bradley back on track. Billy Hamilton, Cincinnati Michael Choice, Texas Abraham Almonte, Seattle

Starting Pitcher Archie Bradley, Arizona With the Diamondbacks’ rotation in a shambles, it’s all about the service time clock starting with Bradley. He dominated the Southern League last season in 21 starts, and has been even better thus far at Triple-A this season. Taijuan Walker, Seattle The athletic Walker spent most of his high school days focusing on basketball and shortstop. Slowed by an injury this spring, the Mariners expect him to help during a pennant drive this summer. Masahiro Tanaka, New York Yankees Any pitcher that goes 24-0 for a championship team deserves attention, no matter what league. The Yankees

don’t expect a 24-0 season, but they do expect ace material from the Japanese import. Kevin Gausman, Baltimore He’s in Triple-A now, but not for long. The Orioles have a governor on his work load, but he’ll contribute as a starter this summer in Baltimore. Jake Odorizzi, Tampa Bay With a number of injuries to Tampa Bay starters, Odorizzi finally gets an opportunity for a regular turn. His first two starts have yielded a gem of six shutout innings over a tough Texas lineup, and seven earned runs in five innings to a Kansas City lineup that has been struggling to score. Go figure. Andrew Heaney, Miami Robbie Ray, Philadelphia Noah Syndergaard, New York Mets

Reliever Maikel Cleto, Chicago White Sox Twice waived in the past 14 months, Cleto seems to have harnessed his impressive talent, and the Chicago bullpen can use the help. Aaron Barrett, Washington

ERA for Toronto Blue Jays’ veteran lefthander Mark Buehrle. After three starts, Buehrle has three wins and has allowed just two runs. In addition to the miniscule ERA, he has a 0.905 WHIP. Entering this season, Buehrle carried a career ERA of 3.84 and WHIP of 1.278.

Can you name the active pitcher with the most career wins as of Sunday, April 13?

Batting average for the Phillies’ Chase Utley through April 13, which leads the majors. Lowest batting average for any player among the 197 with enough plate appearances to qualify this season. The low mark is shared by Jhonny Peralta of the Cardinals, Kansas City’s Mike Moustakas and Josh Reddick of Oakland. Basestealers caught by Robinson Chirinos this season. In 48 innings behind the plate, only four would-be basestealers have attempted a stolen base on the Texas backstop. He’s nabbed all four. Pitches per plate appearance for Minnesota’s Jason Kubel, the highest average in the majors. Kubel is batting a robust .385. Pitches per plate appearance for Cleveland’s Carlos Santana, the second-highest average in the majors. Santana is batting a paltry .186, proving that patience doesn’t necessarily translate to a high batting average.

TRIVIA ANSWER: Both Tim Hudson of the Giants and CC Sabathia of the Yankees entered this season with 205 wins. Hudson has added a pair to his total and leads Sabathia by one, 207 to 206.

Wintry weather postpones Jays-Twins; twinbill scheduled The Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS — The Toronto Blue Jays and the Minnesota Twins were given an unexpected day off because of the weather. They sure needed the extra time to warm back up from the night before. The Blue Jays-Twins game Wednesday was postponed more than seven hours before it was scheduled to begin, due to the unseasonable cold causing a spring storm to produce blowing snow all afternoon with some ac-

cumulation predicted at night. Since this week is Toronto’s only trip to Minnesota, the teams will play a day-night doubleheader Thursday. The forecast was calling for a high temperature of about 42 degrees Thursday but clear and dry conditions. The Blue Jays beat the Twins 9-3 Tuesday without precipitation problems, but the first-pitch temperature was 35 degrees. “We’ve got a roof up

there in Toronto, so we don’t get exposed to it that much. You’ve just got to be mentally tough,” Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said after the game. Blue Jays starter Brandon Morrow had trouble gripping the ball and didn’t finish the fourth inning. He escaped with only two runs allowed. “I didn’t feel helpless. I was still trying on every pitch. But nothing was working,” Morrow said. Third baseman Brett Lawrie didn’t let the cold stop him from hitting a

grand slam in the ninth inning, but he still felt it. “It just kind of hits you. It takes a little bit of getting used to,” Lawrie said, adding: “Get your cold gear on and man up.” One potential casualty of the cold was designated hitter Adam Lind’s back. He left the game Tuesday with tightness and has a history of back trouble. The Blue Jays held out center fielder Colby Rasmus Tuesday because of hamstring tightness that forced him out Sunday at Baltimore.

The cold could also work against R.A. Dickey’s knuckleball, which thrives in humid, hot conditions. The Blue Jays switched their rotation to start Dickey in the matinee Thursday and use Dustin McGowan for the rescheduled game, which will start six hours after the first one. The Twins kept Kyle Gibson as their starter for the afternoon game, meaning Mike Pelfrey will take the mound Thursday night after having this turn bumped back.

Pelfrey will try to bounce back from two rough appearances to start the season. Another pitcher in need of a rebound is reliever Jared Burton, the primary setup man. After posting a 2.18 ERA in 64 appearances in 2012, Burton had his ERA rise to 3.82 in 71 appearances last year. He was charged with nine losses. This season, he has allowed six hits, eight runs and three walks in five innings, including Lawrie’s grand slam Tuesday.

Warriors win 3rd straight 1-4A title BY H. LEE SMITH II lsmith@dailycorinthian.com

Three years back in Class 4A and three Division Tournament titles. Corinth claimed its third consecutive Division 1-4A title on Wednesday, carding a 323 at Shiloh Ridge Athletic Club. The Warriors and Amory, which finished 10 strokes back, both earned berths in the Class 4A State Tournament. Pontotoc’s Denver Rus-

sell also qualified again after earning medalist honors with a 70. In addition, Corinth’s Courtney Craven fired a 92 in the girls’ tournament to punch her ticket to the Girls’ State Tournament. CHS didn’t have the required two golfers that make up a team effort. Corinth beat Amory by 24 strokes at last year’s match at Shiloh Falls. Curtis Dillinger, who led the team with a 78 last season, paved the way

this time around with a 76. Noah McQueen was second with a 79, matching his total and place among the Warrior five last season. Corinth finished tied for fourth at the 2013 Class 4A State Tournament.

Texas A&M QB Joeckel will transfer The Associated Press

COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Texas A&M quarterback Matt Joeckel will leave the school to try and use his final year of eligibility elsewhere. Joeckel has graduated from A&M and won’t have to sit out before playing elsewhere. He appeared in five games last season and started A&M’s opener when Johnny Manziel was suspended for the first half against Rice. Joeckel threw for 293 yards and two touchdowns in 2013. The move leaves the Aggies with freshman Kyle Allen, who was rated the top quarterback prospect in the nation, and sophomore Kenny Hill.

Ole Miss adds two MSU Bulldogs add basketball signees 6-foot-9 JC forward The Associated Press

OXFORD — Mississippi has added junior college standout Roderick Lawrence and Tennessee-Martin transfer Terrence Smith to its recruiting class. The 6-foot-4 Lawrence averaged 13.1 points and 6.1 rebounds last season at South Plains (Texas) College. Smith is a 6-foot-4 guard who has played for Tennessee-Martin the past three seasons and

led the team with 14.6 points per game as a junior. The university announced that both players had signed on Wednesday. Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy is trying to rework his roster after a disappointing 19-14 season ended without a postseason trip. Lawrence and Smith join J.T. Escobar, Marcanvis Hymon, Stefan Moody and Rauno Nurger, who all signed in the fall.

The Associated Press

STARKVILLE — Mississippi State has signed 6-foot9 forward Johnny Zuppardo in an effort to add talent and depth in its frontcourt. The Kiln, Miss., native recently finished his sophomore season at Jones County Junior College, where he helped the Bobcats to a national title. He averaged 15.2 points and 6.9 rebounds per game. The university announced

Zuppardo’s signing on Wednesday. Zuppardo signed with Arkansas State out of high school, where he averaged 1.3 points and 1.0 rebound in 24 games. He also spent one season at Southern Mississippi, where he redshirted, before transferring to Jones County. Zuppardo should add depth next season behind veterans Gavin Ware and Roquez Johnson.

Hart: Tennessee hoops job still ‘attractive’ The Associated Press

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee athletic director Dave Hart believes the criticism former men’s basketball coach Cuonzo Martin encountered this season won’t hinder the Volunteers’ search for a successor. Martin led Tennessee to an NCAA regional semifinal during a season in which disgruntled fans circulated a petition calling for the return of former coach Bruce Pearl, now at Auburn. Martin left Tuesday to take over California’s program. Hart acknowledged Martin faced plenty of “distractions” this season. “I think this is an extremely attractive job,” Hart said. “We

have history. We have tradition. We have one of the finest venues in the country to play college basketball. No, I’m not concerned about that.” Martin downplayed the impact the petition had on his departure and said it “just woke up a sleeping bear.” He didn’t know how it might impact Tennessee’s coaching search. “I’m not sure about that,” Martin said. “I want those players to be successful because those are good guys and they’ve done a tremendous job in the classroom.” Martin went 63-41 in three years at Tennessee, including a 24-13 mark this season before the Vols lost to Michigan

in the Midwest regional semifinal. Hart isn’t alone in thinking the adversity Martin encountered won’t limit Tennessee’s ability to find a quality replacement. ESPN analyst Jay Bilas called Tennessee a top30 job and said “that’s probably being conservative.’ “It’s got good facilities, good support,” Bilas said. “It’s in a great league, and they’ve won there. It’s got all positives. It’s certainly not a positive the way that Cuonzo was treated last season by a portion of the fan base, but it’s not something that would cause a good candidate to say no. That’s not enough.” CBS Sports analyst Doug

Gottlieb noted that Martin’s successor also will have the advantage of arriving at a time when the Southeastern Conference isn’t particularly deep. The SEC has produced only three NCAA tournament teams each of the last two years. “I think this gives Tennessee a chance for a fresh start,” Gottlieb said. “Obviously, it gives Cuonzo a chance for a fresh start. And it gives whoever gets the opportunity to coach in Knoxville a chance to take over an arena that was redone not long ago, a program that was just in the Sweet Sixteen and an adminPlease see VOLS | 13

Ricketts: Cubs not interested in leaving Wrigley The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Chicago Cubs owner Tom Ricketts thinks a move to the suburbs might be lucrative but says his team remains committed to refurbishing century-old Wrigley Field. The Cubs won approval from Chicago’s City Council last July for a $500 million renovation that would include installation of a 5,700-square-foot video scoreboard at Wrigley, which

turns 100 on April 23. The team also wants to erect a 650-square-foot sign in right field with a guarantee neighboring rooftop owners won’t slow construction with a lawsuit. A member of the audience Tuesday at the MLB Diversity Business Summit asked a panel that included Ricketts about the Atlanta Braves’ planned move in 2017 from downtown to a suburban Cobb County and how the

team could maintain a connection with the community near Turner Field. Ricketts said the Cubs have been trying to avoid such an issue. “We’ve been approached by several suburban sites and alternatives to move the Cubs to a new ballpark,” Ricketts said, “and although I haven’t studied it thoroughly, I imagine that’s probably an attractive proposition for us. “But we’ve made it our pri-

ority to try to stay where we’re at,” he continued, “try to stay in the city because of what it does mean to the neighbors and what it does mean to the city, both economically and just from the standpoint of quality of life in general.” The Cubs have seen attendance drop reach year since 2008, from 3.3 million to 2.6 million, and the team has lost 91 games or more in Please see CUBS | 13

istration that will likely do whatever it takes to make whoever is new feel welcome.” Hart said he’d look for the same qualities he sought during his 2012 football coaching search that resulted in the hiring of Butch Jones from Cincinnati. Hart emphasized finding a proven winner with a “significant track record,” but didn’t rule out the possibility of selecting a “rising star.” Tennessee traditionally hires an up-and-coming coach from the mid-major ranks. Martin came from Missouri State. Pearl arrived at Tennessee after leading Wisconsin-Milwaukee to a regional semifinal. Pearl succeeded Buzz Peterson, who came to Tennessee after guiding Tulsa to a NIT championship. “You look for somebody that can recruit,” Hart said. “Our lifeblood is recruiting in all of our sports. When you go into

a process like this, you want to be sure that the person you’re hiring is an outstanding recruiter. “You also want a person that brings a lot of energy and enthusiasm. Transitions aren’t easy, regardless of the circumstances that may have brought you into a transition. They’re difficult. You want somebody with knowledge of the game and you want somebody that can attract a very high-quality staff.” The timing of Martin’s departure leaves Hart with a late start, but this isn’t the first time he’s faced such circumstances. While he was Florida State’s athletic director in 1997, DePaul hired away Pat Kennedy in mid-June, forcing a summer search that led to the selection of Tulsa’s Steve Robinson. “It makes it harder,” Hart said. “It makes it tougher, but the timing is what it is and you deal with it and you move forward.”

CUBS CONTINUED FROM 12

three straight seasons. Ricketts maintained the attendance drop provide opportunities. “There are just way too many people in Chicago that have never been to a Cubs game,” he said. “We’ve worked really hard to get out to people, particularly on the South Side, and say, hey, bring your church, bring your school, just bring a group and we’ll take care of you. I just want more people to at least come into Wrigley and experience it. And we have this opportunity right now

where we do have a few seats open from time to time. “We can bring people in and give them the Wrigley experience. And as we get better those opportunities will be harder to come by.” Ricketts also said the Cubs have to better educate the young players at their complex in the Dominican Republic and told a story from his visit there in 2010. Ricketts recalled when he “put my ear to the wall of the English class and I heard an English teacher say: ‘My curveball is not breaking.’”

Manning still feeling Super Bowl heartache BY ARNIE STAPLETON Associated Press

DENVER — Broncos fans may want to move on from Denver’s Super Bowl debacle. Not Peyton Manning. He’s holding on to the heartache to stoke his competitive fire. In his first public comments since the highestscoring team in NFL history was destroyed by Seattle from the opening snap two months ago, Manning said the Broncos’ 43-8 loss will serve as motivation in 2014. “I don’t really have a word for it. Obviously it

was disappointing and we’ll use that to fuel us this offseason and hopefully it’ll make us better,” Manning said Wednesday prior to giving the keynote address at the Boy Scouts of America Sports Breakfast in Denver. “I know the front office has addressed some offseason needs in free agency and of course the draft’s coming up and now it’s up to the players to put in the hard work in the weight room, the film room and on the practice field to try to be a better team this year and that all starts Monday.”

Georgia’s QB Murray hopes workout eases NFL concerns The Associated Press

ATHENS, Ga. — Quarterback Aaron Murray still has some convincing to do after undergoing reconstructive knee surgery in late November. Even so, Murray believes he alleviated many potential concerns about his health after working out in front of 23 NFL teams at Georgia’s pro day Wednesday. Murray said he felt “no limitations” despite wearing a brace on his left knee. Murray hopes that some scouts will recommend him as a secondround draft pick after his scripted workout that included 54 passes to several receivers on a windy, chilly morning. “We did a lot of throws on the run, left and right, to demonstrate my ability to cut off my leg and show everyone that I’m healthy,” he said. “That way these teams don’t have to worry about if they draft me that I’m going to have to sit out or

anything like that.” Murray likewise understands that he could be the ninth quarterback taken and could fall into the fourth or fifth round. But Murray says that NFL teams are impressed with his resume at Georgia — 52 starts and Southeastern Conference career passing records for yards and touchdowns. In conversations with former Georgia stars A.J. Green, a Pro Bowl receiver with Cincinnati, and Matthew Stafford, the Detroit Lions’ quarterback, Murray has been reassured that NFL teams value a successful career in the SEC. “Obviously it’s not the NFL, but it’s the closest thing to it when it comes to college football,” Murray said. “That helps us after playing against these top (opponents) week in and week out, gets us ready for the NFL.” Green, among a couple hundred onlookers at the

Bulldogs’ practice fields, thought his former teammate appeared sharp, particularly given the severity of his injury and how soon he’s returned to the field. “He’s doing everything you’d hope to see from an NFL quarterback,” Green said. “He’s going to have a lot of success in the league.” Tight end Arthur Lynch, who ran a variety of routes for Murray, thought his longtime roommate and close friend “was on the money with all of his throws” even though the session included three drops, two balls caught out of bounds and an incompletion. “For a guy that had surgery four months ago, he showed that he was strong and didn’t lose any athleticism,” said Lynch, a potential mid-round pick. “If anything he probably got stronger.” Personal quarterback coach Terry Shea, who directed the workout,

has been putting Murray through the same drills for a few weeks. Every standard passing route was on display. “Deep outs, comebacks, digs, being able to put the ball (in the right spot) on the posts, the corners, downfield balls,” Murray said. “All the throws you need to compete at the next level.” Murray returned to Athens two weeks ago to practice the script and get ready. Before that, he was training in Pensacola, Fla., at a facility associated with sports orthopedist James Andrews. “He’s gotten better with a lot of throws, his consistency, getting the ball up, following through, getting it on time, all those things,” said former Georgia teammate Rantavious Wooten, one of his receivers Wednesday. “He came out and did the same thing that he’s been doing for two weeks.” The workout also held

plenty of significance for Lynch, who like Murray was invited to the NFL scouting combine two months ago in Indianapolis. Lynch hopes that teams will respect that he played a variety of roles — fullback, wide receiver and special teams — in four years with the Bulldogs. “I’m not the guy who wows you, but I’m defi-

nitely that does things consistently and does everything fairly well,” Lynch said. “More and more tight ends are getting drafted than ever in this history of the draft. Whether I go in the seventh round or the second round, these teams know what they’re going to get, and I think I’ll be able to make a long career in the NFL.”
