Panel considers Old Town concerns BY JEBB JOHNSTON

Much has changed since the Old Town District zoning regulations went on the books in the 1960s. The city’s planning commission began on Monday to discuss whether the district as it

exists today needs a stricter set of rules. A 90-day moratorium is in effect in the district on the construction of anything that is not single-family residential until the city reaches a decision. Multi-family units such as apartment duplexes are a big part of the discussion.

“Property owners have looked around the city and seen what has been built in other parts of the city and are saying, ‘I don’t want that in my neighborhood because it’s going to affect my property values.’ That’s the issue,” said David Huwe, director of community development

and planning. Including streets such as Linden, Gloster, Bunch and Kilpatrick, it is a transitional district between the C-3 central business district and residential zones. It can accommodate offices, homes and apartments with no limits on the number of

units, although structures are limited to 35 feet in height. The district requires a minimum lot size of 6,000 square feet, and “that’s pretty small compared to most of our other residential areas,” said Huwe. Please see OLD TOWN | 6A

Kiwanis hosting breakfast ACE Power sends

help to Lee County


Members of the Corinth Kiwanis Club have their aprons and spatulas ready. When runners invade the city for the 33rd Annual Corinth Coca-Cola Classic 10K on May 3, the local civic club will be supplying the fuel needed to cover the 6.2-mile course. The annual Pancake Breakfast of the club is slated for 7-11 a.m. on race day. A hearty breakfast of pancakes, sausage, juice and coffee will be available in the fellowship hall of First United Methodist Church. Cost is $5 for the all you eat pancake breakfast. Children 10 and under, who must be accompanied by an adult, eat free. “The Pancake Breakfast is a great event and a great fundraiser for the club,” said Kiwanis President Ken Weeden. “We enjoy putting it on and complimenting the Coke run.” Close to 400-500 pancakes are excepted to be prepared for hungry race followers. “The church is a great place to come enjoy a meal then go out front and watch the race,” said pancake breakfast chairman Jason Grisham.

33rd annual race nearing capacity BY STEVE BEAVERS

Miles of Smiles. Runners and walkers in the 33rd Annual Corinth CocaCola Classic 10K are getting 6.2 miles worth when the gun starts the annual event in downtown Saturday. Organizers of the race were getting closer to filling the field as of Tuesday afternoon. Only 44 spots remained in the popular event. The cap number for race officials is 1,500. “This time last year we only had 1,220 registered,” said race co-coordinator Mona Lisa Grady. “At close Monday, we were at 1,410.” The number quickly jumped to 1,460 by Tuesday afternoon. This year’s running puts the race over 1,000 registered for a fourth straight time. From 1989 to 1995, the race put together a seven-year streak with at least 1,000 signed up for the 6.2mile event.

The race is only 40 away from reaching the 1,500 mark for a second straight year. “It looks like we will fill up at any time,” said race co-coordinator Amy Smith. Cost to enter the 10K is $25. Deadline to enter is May 2 or until all spots have been taken. Registration closes at 7 p.m. May 2. Sign up is available by going to Several runners stopped by Coke to pick up packets Tuesday. Becky Digby was there to collect a packet for her son, Kaleb, who is just completing Army basic training in Fort Benning, Georgia. “He runs it every year,” said the mother of the Calvary Scout. “Since he is in such good shape, I am expecting a good time this year.” Church of the Crossroads has 70 members singed up for the 8:30 a.m. run. “That’s a great idea for

churches who want to train together next year,” said Grady.

ager Jason Grisham. Clean-up continues in north Tupelo and other portions of the county after a dangerous storm system ignited a chain of deadly tornadoes over a threeday period. The streets near Gloster and Green were unrecognizable as volunteers surveyed the damage and dug through the debris in hopes of finding something salvageable. Shortly after 2:40 p.m., Monday a powerful storm producing a wedge-shaped twister was spotted near Barnes Crossing. The ominous cyclone continued its path of destruction, traveling northeast at 50 mph. Power lines were snapped and trees were uprooted as ravenous winds ripped through

downtown Tupelo, piling vehicles on top of each other at King Kars and smacking down the sign at Goodwill. Hammer’s Hot Wings, Vanelli’s, Outback Steak House, Steak Escape, Comfort Suites, Sleep Inn, La Quinta, Sprint Mart and others were the unfortunate casualties. An estimated 2,000 homes and 100 businesses were damaged or completely destroyed, according to the latest damage reports. Numerous injuries were recorded and one casualty was attributed to the storm in Lee County. The devastating events come just one day after an outbreak of 60 tornadoes claimed the lives of 250 people in Alabama on April 27, 2011. (The Associated Press contributed to this story.)

Today in history


National Day of Prayer observed Thursday BY KIMBERLY SHELTON

Today is Wednesday, April 30, the 120th day of 2014. There are 245 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On April 30, 1789, George Washington took the oath of office in New York as the first president of the United States.

On this date: In A.D. 311, shortly before his death, Roman Emperor Galerius issued his Edict of Toleration ending persecution of Christians. In 1803, the United States purchased the Louisiana Territory from France for 60 million francs, the equivalent of about $15 million. In 1945, as Russian troops approached his Berlin bunker, Adolf Hitler committed suicide along with his wife of one day, Eva Braun. In 1958, the American Association of Retired Persons (later simply AARP) was founded in Washington, D.C., by Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus. In 1968, New York City police forcibly removed student demonstrators occupying five buildings at Columbia University. In 1973, President Richard Nixon announced the resignations of top aides H.R. Haldeman and John Ehrlichman, Attorney General Richard G. Kleindienst and White House counsel John Dean, who was actually fired. In 1988, Gen. Manuel Noriega, waving a machete, vowed at a rally to keep fighting U.S. efforts to oust him as Panama’s military ruler. In 1993, top-ranked women’s tennis player Monica Seles was stabbed in the back during a match in Germany, by a man who described himself as a fan.

Wednesday, April 30, 2014

Faithful servants will gather at the Alcorn County Courthouse on Thursday as First Presbyterian Church leads in the observance of the 63rd Annual National Day of Prayer. The event will focus on the scripture verse, Romans 15:6 “... so that with one heart and voice you may glorify the God and

Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” This year’s theme, “One voice united in prayer”, urges everyone to unite in prayer and worship. “As in previous years, Christians in the Corinth/ Alcorn County Community will gather at the south front steps of the Courthouse starting at 11:45 a.m.,” said National Day of Prayer Coordinator for First Presbyterian

Church Becky Stewart. “Please join us in our efforts to call the nation to prayer.” The event, according to Stewart, is usually well attended. “We typically have around 300 to 400 people come out to pray with us,” said the coordinator. “It looks like we are going to have a pretty day for it.” Corinth Mayor Tommy Irwin will give a welcome


up, “City streets will not be an option,” he said. “However, we are going to try to work with any additional organizers to find them another suitable location — maybe a local track or somewhere that won’t involve the closure of our streets.” One new request is currently on the table. The events put de-

mands on the street department and police department and often arise with little notice. Last year, the city learned of a couple of events when the plans were published in the newspaper. Accountability for damage to city infrastructure is another concern. The city plans to review its ordinances and review the practices of some other cities to consider whether some

changes should be made regarding permits, insurance and requirements “so we can get the adequate notice when these events come in and protect our infrastructure and resources,” said Verdung. Carnivals and fairs may also be part of that review. The issue was discussed in Friday’s special meeting of the Board of Aldermen.

brook and Jackson’s Rod Simmons were part of the first class of Gold Bearer Standard winners. Holbrook is being honored again this year in a different fashion. The Memphis runner is slated to be the grand marshal on Saturday. Co-sponsored by Magnolia Regional Health Center, the Classic 10K is called “one of the 100 great short races” by Running Times. More than $6,000 in cash prizes will be awarded on

race day. Prizes money will be awarded to the top three places in eight different divisions and in age groups 25 and over. “Race day is looking ideal,” said Grady. “We should be able to start set up and be ahead of schedule as much as possible.”


In effort to collect shoes for Soles 4 Souls, race organizers are hoping to collect 1,000 pairs of gently worn shoes to fight the human tragedy of global poverty. Shoes can be dropped off on race day or when entrants pick up their race packet. Drop off locations also include Austin’s Shoes, Magnolia Regional Health Center and Cooley & Labas Financial Advisors. For a second straight year, Coke 10K officials are honoring Gold Standard Bearers. The honorees, recognizable by a bright yellow shirt, will be honored during the awards ceremony after the race for their significant contribution to physical fitness.

Tornadoes’ death toll reaches 35 in South The Associated Press

LOUISVILLE — Ruth Bennett died clutching the last child left at her day care center as a tornado wiped the building off its foundation. A firefighter who came upon the body gently pulled the toddler from her arms. “It makes you just take a breath now,” said nextdoor neighbor Kenneth Billingsley, who witnessed the scene at what was left of Ruth’s Child Care Center in this logging town of 6,600. “It makes you pay attention to life.” Bennett, 53, was among at least 35 people killed in a two-day outbreak of twisters and other violent weather that pulverized homes from the Midwest to the Deep South. The child, whose name was

not released, was taken to a hospital. Her condition was not known. As crews in Mississippi and Alabama turned from search-and-rescue efforts to cleanup, the South braced for a third round of potentially deadly weather on Tuesday. Tornadoes usually strike in the late afternoon and evening. One of the hardest-hit areas in Monday evening’s barrage of twisters was Tupelo, where a gas station looked as if it had been stepped on by a giant. By the government’s preliminary count, 11 tornadoes struck the nation’s midsection on Sunday, and at least 25 ravaged the South on Monday, the National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center said.

Politics vs. education Of all the cynical frauds of the Obama administration, few are so despicable as sacrificing the education of poor and minority children to the interests of the teachers’ unions. Attorney General Eric HoldSid Salter er’s attempt to suppress the Columnist spread of charter schools in Louisiana was just one of the signs of that cynicism. His nationwide threats of legal action against schools that discipline more black students than he thinks they should are at least as damaging. Charter schools are hated by teachers’ unions and by much of the educational establishment in general. They seem to be especially hated when they succeed in educating minority children whom the educational establishment says cannot be educated. Apparently it can be done when you don’t have to hire unionized teachers with iron-clad tenure, and when you don’t have to follow the dogmas in vogue in the educational establishment. Last year, there was an attempt to shut down the American Indian Model Schools in Oakland, California -- schools that had been ranked among the top schools in the nation, schools with the top test scores in their district and the fourth highest scores in the entire state of California. The reason given was that the former -- repeat, FORMER -- head of these schools was accused of financial irregularities. Since there are courts of law to determine the guilt or innocence of individuals, why should school children be punished by having their schools shut down, immediately and permanently, before any court even held a trial? Fortunately, a court order prevented this planned vindictive closing of this highly successful charter school with minority students. But the attempt shows the animus and the cynical disregard of the education of children who have few other places to get a comparable education. Attorney General Holder’s threats of legal action against schools where minority students are disciplined more often than he wants are a much more sweeping and damaging blow to the education of poor and minority students across the country. The idea that Eric Holder, or anybody else, can sit in Washington and determine how many disciplinary actions against individual students are warranted in schools across the length and breadth of this country would be laughable if it were not so tragic. Relying on racial statistics tells you nothing, unless you believe that black male students cannot possibly be more disruptive than Asian female students, or that students in crime-ridden neighborhoods cannot possibly require disciplinary actions more often than children in the most staid, middle-class neighborhoods. Attorney General Holder is not fool enough to believe either of those things. Why then is he pursuing this numbers game? The most obvious answer is politics. Anything that promotes a sense of grievance from charges of racial discrimination offers hope of energizing the black vote to turn out to vote for Democrats, which is especially needed when support from other voters is weakening in the wake of Obama administration fiascoes. Eric Holder’s other big racial crusade, against requiring identification for voting, is the same political game. And it is carried out with the same cynical promotion of fears, with orchestrated hysteria from other Democrats -- as if having to show identification to vote is like a revival of the Ku Klux Klan. Blacks, whites and everybody else can be asked for identification these days, whether cashing a check or using a credit card at a local store or going to an airport -- or even getting into some political meetings called to protest voter ID laws. But to sacrifice the education of children, especially children for whom education may be their only ticket out of poverty, is truly a new low. As someone once said to Senator Joe McCarthy, “Have you no sense of decency, sir?” (Daily Corinthian columnist Thomas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305. His website is

Prayer for today My Father, I pray that I may not be indifferent to the call of my soul. May I not seek to serve the disappearing and neglect to make life worthy. Acquaint me with the permanent values of life. Make clear the way of strength, that I may not be misled by ease and carried to weakness. May my life be ennobled by the power of my possessions. Amen.

A verse to share “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.” -- Hebrews 13:5-6

Is America still a serious country? Well, it looks like Donald Sterling will not be getting that NAACP lifetime achievement award he was set to receive at the civil rights organization’s 100th anniversary celebration in Los Angeles in May. Allegedly, Sterling’s 30-something girlfriend, a model who goes by the name of V. Stiviano, whom Sterling’s wife of 50 years is suing, taped these remarks of the 80-year-old owner of the L.A. Clippers: “You can sleep with [black people]. You can bring them in, you can do whatever you want. The little I ask you is not to promote it ... and not to bring them to my games. “ ... Don’t put him [Magic Johnson] on an Instagram for the world to have to see ... and don’t bring him to my games.” This rant of the octogenarian owner swept the canonization of Popes John XXIII and John Paul II right off of page one of the New York Times, whose headline blared: “Amid Uproar, Clippers Silently Display Solidarity.” The Times story told of how Clippers’ players turned their warm-up sweatshirts inside out and donned black socks and black wristbands in protest of Sterling’s remarks. Not exactly John Lewis at Selma Bridge. And, still, the Clippers got waxed in the playoff game against the Golden State Warriors. But the Times was not nearly done with this mon-

strous moral outrage, which even elicited the indignation of President Obama in Pat M a l a y s i a . Buchanan The banner across the Columnist entire sports section of the Times read: “Vortex of Outrage Trails Clippers Owner.” A photo of the team standing solemnly in their red warm-up suits covered half the page, and two Times’ columnists decried the horror. Wrote Michael Powell of Sterling: He stands “exposed as a gargoyle, disgorging racial and sexual animosities so atavistic as to take the breath away.” But how could Sterling be the Bull Connor of California when he has a girlfriend who describes herself as black and Mexican, hired a black coach for his Clippers, Doc Rivers, and pays his players, mostly black, millions of dollars a year? If memory serves, Bull Connor was into using fire hoses, billy clubs and German Shepherds on civil rights demonstrators in his hometown of Birmingham. Sterling regularly sits courtside to cheer on the predominantly black team he has proudly owned for 33 years. His rant sounds rather like an old guy mortified and humiliated at seeing his girlfriend, half his age, on

TV and the Internet, making a fool of him, with black men -- in public. As for the girlfriend, or ex-girlfriend now, she allegedly taped the conversation without his knowledge, a violation of state law. But there is apparently much more to this story than the rant, as the Times’ Billy Witz relates: “In 2009, Sterling paid a $2.725 million settlement in a lawsuit brought by the Justice Department accusing him of systematically driving African-Americans, Latinos and families with children out of apartment buildings he owned.” Why did the league not deal with Sterling then for an offense far more grievous than a phone call to his girlfriend to stop making a fool of him with Magic Johnson. Former NBA great Elgin Baylor, his former general manager, charged Sterling in a lawsuit with running a “Southern plantation-type structure” as boss of the Clippers. And Sally Jenkins of the Washington Post reports on far nastier remarks, as she writes that Sterling said of blacks in 2002 that they “smell and aren’t clean.” “That quote,” says Jenkins, “comes from sworn testimony in a 2002 slumlording case against Sterling for discriminating against tenants, not just blacks but also Hispanics, whom he called lazy drunks, and Koreans, whom he deemed too

powerless to complain, according to statements compiled by” “Sterling’s wormy mind,” writes Jenkins, has been “common knowledge among NBA owners and executives for years, as far back as 1983 when he allegedly called his own players the N-word during a job interview with Rollie Massimino conducted while drinking champagne.” “There is no room for Donald Sterling in our league,” says LeBron James. But that was this weekend. Which brings us to the unanswered questions. How did Donald Sterling get away with behavior, in a professional sports league dominated by black players, which would get a college kid kicked out of school and scarred for life? How was Donald Sterling voted that lifetime achievement award by the NAACP? The answer to all likely lies in the adage: Follow the money. Nevertheless, when nonsense like stupid racial remarks by Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and Clippers boss Donald Sterling can consume the nation’s conversation for a full week, it does raise a far more disturbing question: Is America still a serious country? (Daily Corinthian columnist Pat Buchanan is an American conservative political commentator, author, syndicated columnist, politician and broadcaster.)

Love is a burning thing DECKERS, Colo. — Driving through the Hayman burn area, I think of the old Jim Reeves song: Today I burned your old love letters/ Burned them gently one by one/Before I’d light the flame I’d read it/To try and find the wrong I’ve done. It was a fire named for the mining ghost town of Hayman, but, unfortunately, there were more than 5,000 real people, not ghosts, forced to evacuate when it burned. The cause: arson. A fire ranger said she’d been burning a letter from her estranged husband in a campfire ring when the blaze got out of control. Her story, later roundly disputed, gave a soap opera dimension to a blaze that was anything but fiction. Today, in a national forest that is part of the 100,000acre Hayman burn area, it looks as if the fire could have happened yesterday, not nearly 14 years ago.

It’s a forest of stumps and skeletal, blackened pines, with little new growth visRheta ible. Johnson I keep looking for young Columnist pines, or opportunist aspens, grasses or bushes, but the moonscape doesn’t offer much but dirt and rock and mile after mile of charred carcasses. Experts say that because of the Pike’s Peak granite in the soil, it may be a thousand years in some areas before there are trees or significant flora again. The fire was lit June 8, 2002. For a month and 10 days firefighters from all over the West battled to stop it, but not before it became Colorado’s largest wildfire ever, causing one death, burning 133 homes and costing nearly $40 mil-

lion to fight. Five firefighters died in a traffic accident en route to the Hayman fire from Oregon. Those deaths are a fatal footnote. There are homes here again, most of them built in the past 14 years, with porches and decks that have grim views of barren hills. Two years ago, at the 10th anniversary of the fire, many residents in this area told reporters they remain bitter about how the forest fire started. Forest ranger Terry Barton was convicted of setting the fire in a campfire ring during a total burn ban. She was sentenced to six years in federal prison and served five. She also was sentenced to community service, part of which she did incognito in the Hayman Fire burn area. She is paying millions she owes in state and federal restitution at the rate of $75 a month. Authorities never found

evidence to support Barton’s claim about a letter. Not that it mattered much why she struck a match. She admitted to starting the fire and lying to investigators. Once a plea arrangement was made, her motive made little difference to the prosecution. That didn’t stop the public debate. Some think she might have wanted to be a hero, starting the fire just to put it out and say she saved a forest. Either way, actions have consequences. The match she struck burned $40 million worth of private property, burned 138,000 acres in four counties, killed people and changed a landscape. It’s not something that can be undone -- at least not for a thousand years. (To find out more about Daily Corinthian columnist Rheta Grimsley Johnson and her books, visit www.

Kerry backs off ‘apartheid’ remark WASHINGTON -- Secretary of State John Kerry says he chose the wrong word in describing Israel’s potential future after coming under withering criticism for saying the Jewish state could become an “apartheid state� if it doesn’t reach a peace deal with the Palestinians. In a statement released by the State Department Monday, Kerry lashed out against “partisan political� attacks against him, but acknowledged his comments last week to a closed international forum could have been misinterpreted. While he pointedly did not apologize for the remarks, he stressed he was, and is, a strong supporter of Israel, which he called a “vibrant democracy.� He said his remarks were only an expression of his firm belief that a two-state resolution

is the only viable way to end the long-running conflict. Â

Justices wary of cellphone searches WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court seemed wary Tuesday of allowing police unbridled freedom to search through cellphones of people they arrest, taking on a new issue of privacy in the face of rapidly changing technology. The justices appeared ready to reject the Obama administration’s argument that police should be able to make such searches without first getting warrants. A key question in two cases argued Tuesday is whether Americans’ cellphones, with vast quantities of sensitive records, photographs and communications, are a private realm much like their homes. Â

Right conditions brewed tornadoes WASHINGTON --

Wednesday, April 30, 2014

Across The State

Weather from nearly all parts of the country combined to brew this week’s killer tornadoes. To get tornadoes — especially the big deadly kind — everything has to come together in just the right way and it hadn’t been doing that lately, said meteorologist Greg Carbin at the Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Okla. Until the weekend, there had been relatively few significant twisters this year across the United States — just 20 and no deaths. But the conditions were right on Sunday in the central U.S. Dry, cool air swooped off California’s Sierra Madre and southern Rocky mountains. That sat on top warm, moist air from the Gulf of Mexico, creating thunderstorms. And the jet stream brought in wind shear, which helps provide rotation. Cook that all with daytime heating and it makes a tornado outbreak, meteorologists say.

450-pound alligator caught on beach PASS CHRISTIAN -- An alligator drew quite a crowd to the beach in Pass Christian before being trapped and hauled off by the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks. Pass Christian police said the call came in around 7:30 a.m. Monday of a gator on the beach just west of Jackson Colony. The state wildlife department responded along with the Department of Marine Resources and police. The alligator weighed in at 450 pounds and almost 11 feet long. “He was pretty big,� said Deputy Chief Michael Lally of the Pass Christian Police Department. “I think he’s the biggest I personally have helped deal with.� Lally said the responders were on the beach for about an hour trapping the alligator, adding that it’s not the first time Pass Christian police have responded to a call

Shooting suspect released on bond

HATTIESBURG -- Hattiesburg will continue its biweekly pickup of residents’ garbage and yard debris and officials are looking to upgrade its trucks. The city had flirted with bidding out its garbage service but officials didn’t the price wasn’t right. Mayor Johnny DuPree says only two companies expressed any interest in bidding for the service. The Hattiesburg American reports the five-year lease on the current trucks will expire this summer. The bids for the new, automated truck bodies are scheduled to be opened May 8. DuPree says by keeping the service in-house, the city would be able to maintain control over operations. The Hattiesburg American reports a five-year lease on the current trucks will expire this summer. The bids for the new, automated truck bodies will to be opened

HATTIESBURG -- Authorities say an apartment complex courtesy officer charged with murder in the shooting death of a 38-year-old Hattiesburg man is no longer in jail. The Hattiesburg American reports 45-year-old Ray Allen Thompson, who was arrested Sunday night in connection with the death of Oliver Griffin at the Pinehaven Apartments, was released from jail Monday afternoon after posting a bond of $50,000. Police spokesman Lt. Jon Traxler says officers responded to a call of shots fired and found Griffin on the ground suffering from at least one gunshot wound. Forrest County Deputy Coroner Lisa Klem said Griffin dead at the scene. His body was sent to the state Crime Lab in Jackson for autopsy to determine an official cause of death.

FedEx Employee kills self after shooting six The Associated Press

KENNESAW, Ga. — A FedEx employee wearing ammunition draped across his chest “like Rambo” opened fire Tuesday at a package-sorting center outside Atlanta, wounding six people before committing suicide, police and witnesses said. In addition to a shotgun, the gunman also had an undisclosed number of Molotov cocktails, but he did not use them in the attack, police said. The shooter, who was not publicly identified, was found dead inside. He worked as a package handler at the sprawling facility, Cobb County police Sgt. Dana Pierce

said. Investigators have an idea of what his motive may have been, but they were not prepared to disclose it yet, Pierce said. Three of the wounded were hospitalized in critical condition, including two who were in surgery with life-threatening injuries. The gunman first shot a security guard at a shack outside the building before heading inside, Pierce said. David Titus, a FedEx truck driver, said he was just coming to work around 6 a.m. when he saw a security guard get shot in the abdomen. He said he heard more gun-

fire later from inside the building. “It was chaos,” Titus said. “Everyone was running, ducking and hiding, trying to get out of there.” FedEx clerk Liza Aiken said she was working when she heard something drop, looked to her left and saw the gunman. “He had bullets strapped across his chest like Rambo” and held a knife, Aiken said at the entrance to a parking lot where employees had gathered after the attack. Before she could continue, a woman wearing a FedEx jacket told Aiken to stop talking and led her away. The two people in surgery were a 28-year-old man and a 52-year-old woman. The third critical victim was a 22-year-old man, said Dr. Michael Nitzken of Wellstar Kennestone Hospital. Another man, 38, remained at the hospital but was stable. Two other victims — a 42-year-old woman and a 19-year-old man — were treated and released.

Woman faces murder charge in baby deaths The Associated Press

PROVO, Utah — A Utah woman was charged Monday with six counts of first-degree murder in the killing of her six babies over a decade, but she cannot face the death penalty if convicted, prosecutors said. Defendant Megan Huntsman, 39, is accused of killing the babies between 1996 and 2006, before Utah law was changed in 2007 to make murder a capital offense if a victim was younger than 14, Utah County Attorney Jeff Buhman said outside court after a hearing in the case. Until the law was passed, killing a child was not considered one of the aggravating factors that can make someone eligible for the death penalty. Such factors also include the victim being a police officer, the killing occurring while another crime, such as rape, was committed, or if the defendant has already been convicted of another murder. Killing more than one person also is considered a capital offense but only if they die in the same incident. Authorities say Huntsman was the mother of the babies and they were awaiting DNA testing to confirm that along with the sex of the children. Their causes of death also remain uncertain. No labs in Utah can analyze the type of DNA that has been taken from the small corpses, so the FBI has been brought in to help, police said.

Building Inspector Greg Tyson said an apartment duplex could be built in an R-2 zone on no less than a 13,000-square-foot lot that would also accommodate off-street parking. Huwe said the commission may want to look at parking requirements. In addition to the lot size concerns, there is a sense that the current regulations do not protect the character of the neighborhood. “It’s a neighborhood of old houses — a good many historic old houses that are well over 100 years old — and you just don’t want to plop down” a cheap rental property, said commission member Lee Thurner. However, “With respect to property values,” he said, “you can build a singlefamily house that’s pretty tacky. Just restricting it to single-family is not going to get it done.” He raised the possibility of requiring an architectural review process for compatibility with the neighborhood but acknowledged that can be controversial. The commission, which is an advisory panel to the Board of Mayor and Aldermen, took no action and will continue the discussion at another meeting. Questions about what is allowed in the district arose following a fire that destroyed a structure at Linden and Polk several months ago. It was originally a single-family home that had been a duplex for some time and was being converted back to single family at the time of the fire, the building inspector said. In other business, the board agreed to recommend approval of a zoning variance to allow First Presbyterian Church to use an acquired residential property on Eighth Street across from the church for church purposes.

Trustmark announces first quarter financial results million to represent 28.4% of total deposits Loans held for investment totaled $5.9 billion at March 31, 2014, an increase of $124.9 million, or 2.2% (8.8% annualized), from the prior quarter and $392.0 million, or 7.1%, from one year earlier. During the first quarter, commercial and industrial loans increased $49.8 million as growth in Trustmark’s Mississippi, Alabama and Florida markets more than offset declines in Texas and Tennessee. Trustmark’s singlefamily mortgage portfolio increased $48.2 million, as growth in Mississippi, Alabama and Florida was offset in part by declines in Tennessee and Texas. Commercial real estate loans increased $46.8 million, reflecting growth throughout Trustmark’s five-state franchise. Trustmark’s construction and consumer lending portfolios remained relatively flat. Other loans declined $14.4 million as growth in Alabama was more than offset by reductions in Trustmark’s other geographic markets. Acquired loans totaled $746.3 million at March 31, 2014, down $57.9 million from the prior quarter. Collectively, loans held for investment and acquired loans totaled $6.7 billion at March 31, 2014, up $67.0 million from the prior quarter. Net interest income (FTE) in the first quarter totaled $98.7 million, resulting in a net interest margin of 3.92%. Relative to the prior quarter, interest income (FTE) declined $7.4 million due principally to a $5.5 million decline in recoveries on acquired loans. The yield on acquired loans totaled 8.67% and included recoveries on loan pay-offs of $3.8 million, which represented approximately 1.97% of the total acquired annualized loan yield in

For Daily Corinthian

JACKSON — Trustmark Corporation (NASDAQ:TRMK) reported net income of $29.0 million in the first quarter of 2014, which represented diluted earnings per share of $0.43, an increase of 2.4% from the prior quarter and 13.2% compared to one year earlier. Trustmark’s performance during the first three months of 2014 produced a return on average tangible equity of 12.93% and a return on average assets of 0.99%. Trustmark’s Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.23 per share payable June 15, 2014, to shareholders of record on June 1, 2014. Gerard R. Host, President and CEO, said, “Trustmark continued to achieve solid financial results in the first quarter, reflecting the fourth consecutive quarter of growth in our legacy loan portfolio as well as continued improvement in credit quality. Expansion of our net interest margin excluding acquired loans coupled with solid growth in noninterest income and disciplined expense management was a great way to begin the year. Thanks to our associates, solid profitability and strong capital base, Trustmark remains well-positioned to continue meeting the needs of our customers and creating value for our shareholders as we enter our 125th year.”

Balance Sheet Management • Loans held for investment increased at an annualized rate of 8.8% in the first quarter • Net interest margin (FTE) was 3.92%; excluding acquired loans, net interest margin (FTE) expanded 4 basis points to 3.52% in the first quarter • Noninterest-bearing deposits increased $215.8

the first quarter. Excluding acquired loans, the net interest margin in the first quarter totaled 3.52% compared to 3.48% in the prior quarter. Trustmark’s solid capital position reflects the consistent profitability of its diversified financial services businesses as well as prudent balance sheet management. At March 31, 2014, Trustmark’s tangible equity to tangible assets ratio was 8.31% while the total risk-based capital ratio was 14.34%, significantly exceeding the 10.00% benchmark to be classified as “wellcapitalized.” Trustmark’s solid capital base provides the opportunity to support organic loan growth in an improving economy and enhance long-term shareholder value.

Credit Quality • Significant reduction in classified and criticized loan balances • Nonperforming loans declined 1.9% during the quarter • Improved credit quality reflected in net recoveries and negative provisioning in the first quarter Nonperforming loans totaled $64.0 million at March 31, 2014, a decline of 1.9% from the prior quarter and 23.2% from the prior year. Foreclosed other real estate totaled $111.5 million, an increase of $5.0 million, or 4.7%, from the prior quarter. Relative to levels one year earlier, other real estate decreased $6.9 million. Net recoveries during the first quarter of 2014 totaled $1.9 million and represented -0.13% of average loans. This compares favorably to net charge-offs in the prior quarter of $201 thousand, or 0.01% of average loans, and to net recoveries in the prior year of $1.1 million, or -0.08% of average loans. The provision for

loan losses for loans held for investment was a negative $805 thousand in the first quarter of 2014, reflecting the net recovery position and improved credit quality. During the first quarter, Trustmark experienced a decline of $7.0 million, or 3.2%, in classified loans and a decline of $7.1 million, or 2.8%, in criticized loans relative to the prior quarter. Relative to the prior year, classified loan balances decreased $20.2 million, or 8.6%, while criticized loan balances decreased $63.2 million, or 20.2%. Allocation of Trustmark’s $67.5 million allowance for loan losses represented 1.33% of commercial loans and 0.65% of consumer and home mortgage loans, resulting in an allowance to total loans held for investment of 1.14% at March 31, 2014, which represents a level management considers commensurate with the inherent risk in the loan portfolio. The allowance for loan losses represented 180.86% of nonperforming loans, excluding impaired loans. All of the above credit metrics exclude acquired loans and other real estate covered by FDIC lossshare agreement.

Noninterest Income • Noninterest income totaled $44.1 million, up 14.0% from the prior quarter • Insurance revenue expanded to $8.1 million, an increase of 10.3% from the prior quarter • Mortgage banking revenue increased to $6.8 million Noninterest income totaled $44.1 million in the first quarter, an increase of $5.4 million from the prior quarter. This improvement resulted in part from a decrease in partnership amortization of $2.6 million related to

tax credit investments as well as a decrease of $1.7 million in the net reduction of the FDIC indemnification asset primarily resulting from the re-estimation of cash flows and loan payoffs. Each of these items was included in other noninterest income. Service charges on deposit accounts totaled $11.6 million in the first quarter, a decrease of $1.5 million, or 11.8%, from the prior quarter primarily resulting from a seasonal reduction in NSF and overdraft fees. Bank card and other fees totaled $9.1 million in the first quarter, down $499 thousand from the prior quarter, reflecting a seasonal decline in interchange income as well as reduced commercial credit-related fee income. Mortgage loan production in the first quarter totaled $230.3 million, down 16.6% from the prior quarter, reflecting the decline in refinance activity following an extended low interest rate environment. Despite the decline in production, mortgage banking revenue increased $1.6 million in the first quarter to total $6.8 million due principally to increased positive mortgage serving hedge ineffectiveness. As a result of increased group health and commercial property and casualty business, insurance revenue in the first quarter totaled $8.1 million, an increase of 10.3% from the prior quarter. Wealth management revenue remained stable during the quarter at $8.1 million.

Noninterest Expense • Noninterest expense totaled $101.6 million, down 3.1% from the prior quarter • Routine noninterest expense remained wellcontrolled Noninterest expense totaled $101.6 million in the first quarter; exclud-

ing ORE and intangible amortization of $5.6 million, noninterest expense during the first quarter totaled $96.0 million, a decrease of $3.4 million from comparable expenses in the prior quarter. Salaries and benefits expense remained well-controlled and totaled $56.7 million in the first quarter, unchanged from the prior quarter. Services and fees decreased $1.3 million principally due to lower legal and professional service fees. Other expense decreased $2.2 million relative to the prior quarter, reflecting in part lower mortgage loan and miscellaneous expenses. At the close of business on December 31, 2013, Trustmark consolidated its wholly owned subsidiary, Somerville Bank & Trust Company, into Trustmark National Bank. This consolidation will enhance productivity and efficiency with the elimination of duplicate functions and operating systems as well as support revenue growth with the addition of a broader product line. Trustmark is committed to investments to support profitable revenue growth as well as reengineering and efficiency opportunities to enhance shareholder value.

State works to build awareness of drug dependent newborns For Pickwick Profiles

In 2013, 921 newborns in Tennessee experienced withdrawal from drugs their mothers used while pregnant. Many people across Tennessee, including a group of state Fruit

leaders, are working to reduce that number and in the past year launched several efforts to help prevent the suffering and expenses associated with the condition known as Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome, or NAS.

Bye winter doldrums business picked up as the weather improved. That means analysts are forecasting much stronger earnings growth for the second quarter than the first. That would bring profit growth back to where it was at the end of 2013. Goldman Sachs strategists recently compiled a list of companies that have cited how better weather has helped them. Among them:

Maybe it really was just the weather. At the start of this year, shoppers were avoiding stores, employers were limiting hiring and companies were projecting minimal profit growth for the first quarter. Analysts questioned whether the weak outlook was tied to the harsh winter or if the economy itself was sliding backward. It looks like the former. A growing number of companies have said that

• American Express, financial services “We were encouraged to see that U.S. billings growth increased over the second half of the quarter as the weather improved.” — Chief Financial Officer Jeffrey Campbell • Kimberly-Clark, consumer products “There are some impacts from the severe weather that we had in the U.S. in January and February, and conditions in that business have improved more recently, and we’re expecting better performance as we roll forward into the year.” — CEO Thomas Falk

• Robert Half International, staffing “January and February were clearly revenue weather impacted. We would estimate that the weather reduced our growth rates on the temp side by about 1 percent. We then look at March. March was…very solid.” — CFO Keith Waddell

S&P 500 growth, earnings per share

Parting clouds This earnings reporting season has been a dud, but analysts expect growth to re-accelerate as the weather improves.

Bond-buying update

Yahoo-Yelp deal details?

The Federal Reserve has taken steps to reduce its monthly bond purchases as signs point to stronger economic growth. Since December, the central bank has announced three $10 billion reductions in the monthly purchases, which were aimed at keeping long-term interest rates low. Fed officials wrap up a two-day meeting today. Wall Street will be watching to see whether the Fed will announce another reduction.

Yelp’s latest quarterly earnings could provide insight into a pact between the company and Yahoo. Reviews from the online review provider began to appear in Yahoo’s search engine results earlier this year. The companies didn’t immediately disclose financial terms of the partnership. Wall Street will want to see what kind of lift the pact may have given Yelp’s bottom line in the first quarter. The company reports financial results for the January-March period today.

Boyfriend’s ‘other woman’ is permanently attached DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend and I have been dating for Abigail two years. live Van Buren We together, and his Dear Abby child from another woman lives with us. I love my boyfriend and his child, but one thing prevents me from imagining us being married: He has his child’s mother’s name tattooed on his body. He says he doesn’t want to get rid of it. When the topic comes up, we argue. Am I unreasonable for wanting him to get rid of the tattoo? -- IN A STINK OVER INK DEAR IN A STINK: You’re asking the wrong person. Only your boyfriend can answer that. He may not want to go to the expense, or to experience the pain of having more artwork

done. Or he may not like the idea that you are telling him what to do. However, if he has been living with you for two years, I doubt it’s because he’s still carrying a torch for someone else. If you love him and the two of you want to get married, my advice is to accept him warts, artwork and all, because regardless of any romance in his past, YOU have habeas corpus. (That’s Latin for “you have the body.”) DEAR ABBY: I consider myself a social person and enjoy talking to friends on the phone. My problem is, when I talk to one of them, she will never let me get off the phone. Sometimes we’ll talk for several hours, but eventually I have other obligations and have to go. When I tell her that, she often ignores me and keeps right on talking.

I don’t want to be rude, but sometimes I have to say goodbye four and five times before she finally acknowledges that I must end the call. It irritates me. I like talking to her, but I can’t go on and on forever. How can I make her let me off the phone without hanging up on her or upsetting her? -MR. NICE GUY DEAR MR. NICE GUY: The person you’re describing obviously has less going on in her life than you do. She may also be a compulsive talker. The next time you talk to her, make the conversation faceto-face and tell her that as much as you like her, you don’t have the amount of time to spend on the phone that she does. Explain that when you tell her you must end the conversation, if she doesn’t stop talking within five minutes, you will have to hang up. And then do it.

Short-track tempers explode at Richmond; NASCAR reviewing the situation


Getty Images for NASCAR

Saturday’s Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond produced some typical shorttrack temper tantrums, with one incident between Marcos Ambrose and Casey Mears escalating to some rare fisticuffs between Cup drivers. FOX cameras showed Mears shoving Ambrose, with Ambrose responding with a hard right-hand punch to Mears’ left eye. Crew members soon broke up the scuffle, but it was not readily apparent what led to the altercation. Ambrose finished 18th, one spot ahead of Mears. NASCAR officials told reporters at the track that they were looking into the matter. Brad Keselowski was mad at Matt Kenseth for blocking him late in the 400 as the two raced for the top spot, saying Kenseth’s blocking tactics Marcos Ambrose Casey Mears were “mind-boggling.” Kenseth said he was only doing what one is expected to do in the final laps. “[Keselowski] was mad because I ran into him a little bit getting into [Turn] Three, but we’re going for the win,” he said. “I ran him up to the third groove or so, but I’ve witnessed him racing that way a lot — like I think he did to Jimmie [Johnson] at Texas a few years ago. “I thought once we got to the straightaway I left him enough room … I guess he’s upset about that. We were all going for the win — that’s what we’re supposed to be doing.”

Chase Elliott’s success in Nationwide reminds car owner of Chase’s cousin, the late Casey Elliott

and is among those who are reminded of Casey every time Chase enjoys success on the track. “I always wonder what he could have been,” Voyles said. “The kid had everything. He had good looks, a great personality, great driving ability, and he had the Elliott name.” Casey Elliott Driving Voyles’ cars, Elliott won big all over the Southeast, and in his final race, he held off a pack of veteran drivers to win the Budweiser 300 at Lanier Raceway, one of the premier races and premier tracks of that era. Voyles, who has fielded cars for numerous drivers at all levels of the sport over the years, said Casey Elliott always expressed his appreciation. “I never heard him do an interview that he didn’t thank me,” Voyles said. “A lot of drivers don’t do that, but Casey was a first-class person.” Today, Voyles, now 65, is fielding Late Model cars for his grandson, Adam Smith, who started his career racing at some of the same short tracks as Chase Elliott. Smith races a bright red No. 14. Another one of Voyles’ cars, the No. 94 Ford that Elliott drove, is on display at the Georgia Auto Racing Hall of Fame in Dawsonville. “It’s where it ought to be,” Voyles said of that car. “We need to do all we can to keep Casey’s memory alive.”

Chase Elliott continues to make headlines in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, with back-to-back wins at Texas Motor Speedway and Darlington Raceway and a strong second-place finish behind Kevin Harvick at Richmond International Raceway last Friday night. He’s atop the points standings heading into this weekend’s Aaron’s 312 at Talladega Superspeedway, 19 points ahead of his JR Motorsports teammate Regan Smith. Back home in Dawsonville, Ga., the fan base that his father Bill Elliott built has been re-energized. A new generation has come to enjoy the sounding of the siren atop the Dawsonville Pool Room, where young Chase once worked washing dishes and preparing salads, every time he wins a race. But there are some who hear the good news about Chase and are reminded of another young Elliott and what might have been. In the early 1990s, Casey Elliott — the son of Ernie and Sheila Elliott and nephew of Bill Elliott — came charging through the ranks of the local Late Model drivers on his way to a career in the series now known as Nationwide. He ran two Nationwide races in 1993, at Michigan International Speedway and Charlotte Motor Speedway. He qualified eighth at Michigan and fourth at Charlotte, and every indication was that the 19-yearold driver was poised to follow in his famous uncle’s tire tracks. But before he ever raced again, Casey Elliott was stricken with cancer. He died on Jan. 14, 1996. Had he lived, he would be 40 years old this year. Gerald Voyles of Carnesville, Ga., was Elliott’s car owner in Late Model racing

Richard Petty — NASCAR’s King — was back at the track at Richmond International Raceway last weekend for the first time since his wife Lynda’s death on March 25. Trent Owens, the crew chief of the No. 43 Ford and a nephew of Petty’s, said on last week’s NASCAR teleconference that his uncle had been coping as well as possible. “When something like that happens, you kind of want to hide for a little bit and just get your feelings straight,” said Owens, whose late father, Randy, was Lynda Petty’s brother. “But he’s been by the shop and been in good spirits, and I think he’s doing very well, considering.”

Maybe that “Sliced Bread” nickname that Joey Logano’s backers hung on him several years ago wasn’t as bad an idea as it once looked. In the first seasons of his NASCAR career, Logano struggled to live up to a nickname that indicated he was the best thing since sliced bread. He did get a win at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in his rookie season, but it came on a pit strategy ploy in a rainshortened race and got him a win he didn’t really earn. His career at Joe Gibbs Racing saw him grow into a confident, winning Nationwide Series driver, but he couldn’t duplicate that success on the Sprint Cup side. But since moving to Team Penske last year and hooking up with Crew Chief Todd Gordon, the potential he showed as a teenager is coming to fruition. His win this past Saturday night at Richmond International Raceway — one in which he raced past three former Cup champions in the closing nine laps — was his second of the season, and puts him in the position of making the Chase for the Sprint Cup no matter what happens the rest of the year. He and Kevin Harvick are the only Cup drivers with multiple wins this season, as Logano also won at Texas, while Harvick has wins at Darlington and Phoenix. “Having a couple wins this early in the season and in two completely different race tracks makes you very confident for the rest of the season,” Logano said. “At this point, we really have nothing to lose. It’s all about going for wins and having fun out there and making sure we’re ready for when the Chase starts. “We’ve put ourselves in a good position this early in the season, and we’re going to have some fun.” Logano said his success this season is in large part a product of the experience he and Gordon have had in the past two seasons — the knowledge they’ve gained from their good and bad runs together. “I think you’ve got a notebook now,

He led 173 of 400 laps at Richmond and was in contention for the victory up until the end. “It was a great night,” he said. “We were having fun. Gosh, what great race cars we’re bringing to the race track; great pit stops. It’s frustrating to not win, but also each time we run this good, it builds more confidence and momentum that we’re going to get that win soon.” Gordon, who has been a part of several exciting finishes this season, attributed some of the good racing on the track to the tire compounds Goodyear is providing. Although some have complained about tire failures, he said there’s more to the story than that. “As much as we’re beating up on Goodyear right now, I think that’s also contributed to some great races,” he said. “More cautions and more double-file restarts and 10-lap, eight-lap runs to the finish — those are all things that make for great racing. “I think we seem to be at our best on the tracks where finesse is a little bit more important, tire management, things like that — California, Texas, [Richmond], Martinsville, and that’s where we’re really shining right

Sterling banned for life by the NBA The Associated Press

NEW YORK — NBA Commissioner Adam Silver delivered the swiftest, strongest penalty he could, then called on NBA owners to force Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling to sell the team for making racist comments that hurt the league. Almost unanimously, owners supported the commissioner Tuesday, as he handed down one of the harshest penalties in the history of U.S. sports. “We stand together in condemning Mr. Sterling’s views. They simply have no place in the NBA,” Silver said at a news conference. Sterling, 80, is banned for life from any association with

the league or the Clippers, and was fined $2.5 million — the maximum allowable under the NBA constitution. If three-fourths of the other 29 owners agree to Silver’s recommendation, Sterling will be forced to sell the team he has owned since 1981. A message left seeking comment at Sterling’s business office hadn’t been returned Tuesday afternoon. Team spokesman Seth Burton said in an email that the Clippers had no plans to issue a statement from Sterling on Tuesday. Players and others cheered Silver’s quick action, with union officials saying that if the league’s punishment hadn’t included a mandate

for Sterling to sell the team, players were considering boycotting playoff games, including Tuesday’s Golden State Warriors-Clippers matchup, the team’s first home game since the scandal erupted. “We wanted to be a part of this decision, and we wanted Adam Silver to know where we stood. And we were very clear that anything other than Sterling selling his team was not going to be enough for us,” said Roger Mason Jr., the first vice president of the players’ union. Chris Paul, the Clippers’ All-Star point guard and the president of the players’ union, issued a brief statement before leading Los

Angeles against the Warriors in Game 5 of their tied playoff series. “In response to today’s ruling by the NBA and Commissioner Adam Silver, my teammates and I are in agreement with his decision,” Paul said. “We appreciate the strong leadership from Commissioner Silver and he has our full support.” Sterling’s comments — which were recorded by his girlfriend and released by TMZ on Saturday — harmed the league, Silver said. Sponsors were threatening to abandon the NBA, and criticism was coming from fans on social media and even the White House.

Attorneys for Vandy player seek dismissal The Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Defense attorneys for a former Vanderbilt player alleged to be involved in the gang rape of a woman in a campus dorm last June are accusing prosecutors of destroying or not preserving evidence. The allegations were contained in a motion filed Tuesday asking for the case against Brandon Vandenburg to be dismissed. The attorneys say the woman told police that then-Vanderbilt Coach James Franklin and his strength coach contacted her after the alleged assault, telling her they cared because she helped with recruiting. The filings didn’t elaborate. They say the woman also told police that Franklin also had asked for help getting 15 “pretty girls together and form a team to assist with the recruiting.”

Committee won’t dictate conference games BY RALPH D. RUSSO AP College Football Writer

IRVING, Texas — The College Football Playoff selection committee does not want to dictate how many conference games leagues play. Playoff executive director Bill Hancock and the FBS conference commissioners are meeting this week at the Four Seasons Hotel outside of Dallas to work out remaining details of the four-team play-

off that will replace the Bowl Championship Series this season. The first championship game in the new postseason format will be played at AT&T Stadium in Arlington. The Southeastern Conference recently announced it will stay with an eight-game league schedule instead of going to nine games. The Pac-12 and Big 12 currently play nine games and the Big

Ten is moving to a nine-game conference slate. The Atlantic Coast Conference plays eight league games, plus five of its teams will play Notre Dame each season. “The (selection) committee will not be in the business of dictating to conferences their scheduling,” Hancock said. Hancock said the “totality” of a team’s schedule will be evaluated by the selection committee for its difficulty.

“Every game that everybody plays will be taking into consideration,” Hancock said. “To the committee it won’t matter whether you played an eight- or nine-game conference schedule. But it will matter who you played for your 12 or 13 games. And, of course, how you did against them.” Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby said he has been Please see DICTATE | 13A

New Missouri coach, Anderson, gets ‘dream job’ The Associated Press

COLUMBIA, Mo. — No sales pitch was necessary for Kim Anderson. The new Missouri coach has wanted this for a long time. Anderson welled up a few times and paused to collect himself at his introductory news conference Tuesday, a day after the school hired him to replace Frank Haith.

“This is my dream job,” Anderson said. “You all probably figured that out a long time ago. I’m Mizzou through and through.” Anderson will be 59 next month. He was ready, with good humor, for the questions about his age, about the last dozen years he’s been coaching in Division II, about his ability to woo top-tier re-

cruits. Since getting the job, he’s heard it all. “Apparently, I’m old. I really had no idea of that until yesterday, and I’ve got to tell you it devastated me,” Anderson said, drawing laughter. “Hey, I’m not playing, guys. Old ballplayers coach, that’s what we do.” The ability to connect with kids, Anderson said, was just

as important at Central Missouri as it’ll be in the SEC. “We recruited at a high level because people trusted us with their sons and their players,” Anderson said. “We recruited and signed Division I-caliber players at the University of Central Missouri because of relationships and Please see DREAM | 13A

talking to athletic directors and coaches in his conference about how best to schedule if the school has playoff aspirations â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and knows similar conversations are going on in the other leagues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to play a murdererâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s row (out of conference),â&#x20AC;? Bowlsby said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to play three top-20 teams. But you also, if you want to be able to have the tiebreaker between being fifth and being fourth in the playoff selection, you want to have played a representative nonconference schedule.â&#x20AC;? Hancock also said how a conference determines its champion will not influence the committee. The Big 12, with 10 teams, is the only one of the five power conferences that does not have a championship game. NCAA rules state a conference must have 12 teams to hold a football championship game, but the Big 12 and the Atlantic Coast Conference are in the process of petitioning the NCAA to deregulate how conferences de-

cide a football champion. Bowlsby said the conference still has no plans to hold a championship game, but would like to at least have the option down the road. The ACC is interested in eliminating the NCAAmandated divisional format for conferences that play a championship game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whether you won your conference championship by championship game or throughout regular season play is not going to matter significantly to the committee,â&#x20AC;? Hancock said. The differences in the conference schedules will present a hurdle for the selection committee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ideally, we would all run the race on similar course,â&#x20AC;? Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott said. Hancock said the commissioners would like to set a date on when the first in-season ranking will be released by the selection committee and how often the rankings are released. He said around Halloween has been talked about as the date for the first rankings release.

connections.â&#x20AC;? Athletic director Mike Alden said Anderson got a five-year contract with a base salary of $1.1 million and the total package worth more than $2 million per year. With about 200 media and fans in attendance, Alden said he got the right man for the job. A man right under the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nose all along when it opted for Quin Snyder to succeed Norm Stewart in 1999, then chose Mike Anderson and Frank Haith. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had to have someone who was a proven winner,â&#x20AC;? Alden said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How about a person thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Missouri-made?â&#x20AC;? Alden used a search firm to help identify candidates for a job that might prove challenging especially at the outset. Haith left for Tulsa after Missouri settled for the NIT last season and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good chance only two starters will be back, neither of whom averaged in double figures.

Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interviewed for the job before and this time got the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attention by winning a Division II title at Central Missouri this past season, and got an endorsement on Twitter from his old athletic director. Anderson was biking on the Katy Trail in rural Missouri when he got a telephone call from the search firm, and had to go to a high school parking lot to get cell service. He was interviewed by Alden at his home in Warrensburg, Mo., last Thursday then met with school Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin. On the drive to the Columbia campus to meet the team, he telephoned Stewart, whose name is on the court at Mizzou.

Wizards eliminate Bulls with 75-69 victory The Associated Press

CHICAGO â&#x20AC;&#x201D; John Wall finished with 24 points, Nene scored 20, and the Washington Wizards beat the Chicago Bulls 75-69 on Tuesday night to clinch their first-round series in five games. Bradley Beal scored 17 points, and the fifth-seeded Wizards advanced in

the postseason for just the third time since the 1970s. They will meet Indiana or Atlanta in the Eastern Conference semifinals. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge step for a franchise that hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been to the postseason since 2008, but with Wall and Beal leading the way, they won 44 games during the regular season.

The Wizards turned a halftime tie into a ninepoint lead heading into the fourth quarter and hung on down the stretch. Chicagoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comeback chances took a big hit early in the final quarter when Taj Gibson crumbled to the court clutching his left ankle after he tried to block a layup by

Wall with the Wizards up by six points. He had to be helped off the court and did not return. The Bulls cut it to 7067 on a jumper by Carlos Boozer with 3:32 left. Wall then poked the ball away from Boozer and nailed a jumper at the shot-clock buzzer. Chicago hit two free throws

with 2:18 remaining to cut it back down to three, but the Wizards grabbed three offensive rebounds while whittling more than a minute off the clock before Beal threw the ball away with a minute left in the game. Boozer missed on a drive, but the Bulls had another chance after a shot-clock violation

by Washington with 22.4 seconds left. Chicagoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jimmy Butler missed on a layup off the inbounds, and the Wizards caught a break after Andre Miller missed two free throws. Beal tracked down the loose ball and hit the first free throw to make it 7369 with 14.6 seconds left before missing the second.

Bourbon-glazed salmon great for a crowd BY ELIZABETH KARMEL Associated Press


Maple-bourbon glazed salmon Want to feed more people? Buy a larger fillet. A 4-pound fillet will take roughly 30 minutes on the grill, and will feed


Associated Press

Maple-boubon glazed salmon is a great dish to feed a large number of guests. The glaze adds a complexity that brightens up the meaty fish.

Buying and cooking salmon I prefer wild salmon to farm-raised, but there are some good sustainable farmraised options, too. The trick is to smell the fish. If it smells briny and clean, it is fresh. If it has any â&#x20AC;&#x153;fishyâ&#x20AC;? or ammonia smell, do not buy it. I once bought a piece of fish that had a slight odor when raw and as I cooked it, it turned my whole backyard into a stink bomb! The moral of the story is that you should not cook fish that is past its prime. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; ELIZABETH KARMEL

Man refuses to give wife allowance WIZARD OF ID





Dear Annie: I’m a 59-year-old non-working female who has been married for 20 years. I thought my husband was a wonderful man, but 10 years ago, he removed my name from our joint bank accounts. I worked for 30 years. I now find myself with no money and no job. I have to depend on my husband for everything. He doesn’t give me money unless I beg for it. Is there anything I can do legally to persuade him to give me an allowance? He says he pays all of our bills, so I don’t need any money. Our three children agree with him. For health reasons, I cannot return to work. What can I do? — Confused Dear Confused: Because your husband and your children all believe you should not handle money, we have to ask whether there is a reason. Do you gamble? Do you overspend? Even so, you still should be allotted a small amount of money for personal use. The other possibility is financial abuse. Many people think abuse is predominantly about physical harm, but it comes in many guises, one of which is controlling

Annie’s Mailbox all the money in a relationship, making one partner completely dependent on the other. If this is what is happening in your marriage, please contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline ( at 1-800-799-SAFE. Dear Annie: Our daughter and her husband are extremely poor housekeepers. They are successful in education and at their jobs, but utterly fail when it comes to cleaning. They never invite people to their house. The mess embarrasses our two young grandchildren, who make unsolicited comments about the condition of their home when they stay with us. We once mentioned the state of their house years ago and were told to butt out. When my son-in-law was hospitalized, the family performed a cleaning intervention. Unfortunately, it didn’t last, and things are back to the usual. We don’t know how to encourage cleanliness without creating a conflict. Any suggestions?

— Concerned Grandparents Dear Concerned: How messy? If it is clutter (not hoarding), leave it alone. A messy house is no reason to create ill will with your daughter. Not everyone’s standards of cleanliness will be up to yours, and while they may not want company, it is not dangerous. However, if there is old food getting moldy on the carpet, bugs crawling all over the floor and rats in the closets, it is a health hazard to the children and should be reported. We suggest you tell them that you understand how terribly busy they are and ask whether you can gift them with a professional cleaning service as your birthday, anniversary and Christmas presents. (Feel free to add Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Labor Day if you can afford it.) Don’t make negative remarks about their lack of housekeeping skills. If they refuse your kind offer, invite the kids over more often and leave the rest alone.

Tomato gardening tips for spring planting season Gardening is a pastime many people in the Alcorn County enjoy. Daylight hours are gradually getting longer during this time of year and this affords individuals more time in the evening to get out and work in the garden. Based upon early warm weather and several producers already having plants in the ground (especially tomatoes), I wanted to touch on some tips that would hopefully help ensure a successful growing season. First and foremost, if you haven’t already done it, you need to get a soil sample of where you have your garden planted. I realize I mention this in just about all of my news articles, but it is a very important issue. One of the most common garden problems is a pH level that is too low. This can be remedied with pelletized or agricultural lime but knowing how much to put out will require a soil sample.

management tool that you as a homeowner can utilize in order to insure the proper growing conditions for your garden. With rainy weather followed by warm temperatures, we typically will experience an increase in fungal type infections as well as diseases associated with tomatoes in the garden. There are several ways to decrease the occurrence of these issues. Incidence of diseases such as early blight, Septoria leaf spot, and buckeye fruit rot, all of which are more severe following rainy weather, can be reduced with the following tips: The first involves the use of plant stakes or support cages. Gardeners need to make sure the leaves of the plant don’t come in contact with the soil within the first few weeks of setting out transplants as the first line of defense for tomato leaf diseases and fruit rots. This control technique is effective since the fungi

S o i l samples are $6 each but it is still one of the cheapest Patrick m a n a g e Poindexter ment tools available Ag Lines to help in plant growth, especially with the cost of fertilizer this year. Adjustments made based on your soil report can have a tremendous impact on how well your garden grows. Above all, if you are not sure as to how much fertilizer you will need in a particular area, the best way to find out is to soil test. You can bring these samples along with a check or money order to the Alcorn County Extension Service and we will mail them to the lab for you. Usually results will be returned to you in 7 to 10 days. This is the cheapest

With rainy weather followed by warm temperatures, we typically will experience an increase in fungal type infections as well as diseases associated with tomatoes in the garden. which cause these diseases live in the soil. Tomato foliage and fruit in contact with the soil surface quickly become disease targets when rain splashes soil particles containing blight and fruit rot fungi onto lower parts of the plant. So, if you stake, trellis, or cage your plants, this will cut down on disease development in the lower part of the plants. In turn, disease movement up the plant will be slowed. Along with staking of tomato plants, it’s a good idea to use mulch to further reduce the amount of soil splash onto fruit. Mulching is a good idea not only for tomato production but for other vegetable crops as well.

Mulching will help with pod rot (anthracnose) of lima beans, belly rot of cucumbers and cantaloupes, and fruit rot of bell peppers. Early-season mulching with plastic, newspaper, pine straw, wheat straw and similar materials will mean extra work, but the technique works and will allow you to reduce losses from wet weather diseases. Staking and mulching will help, but it’s important to realize that other practices such as a good fungicide application program will also need to be carried out to further cut down on vegetable disease losses. There are several fungicides that are on the

market that can be used in your garden. Be mindful of withdrawal times and always follow the label directions. If you are not sure if a particular fungicide or insecticide can be used on the vegetable in question, then don’t use it. Additional information on garden diseases and insect control are covered in the extension publication “Garden Tabloid”. These are available at the Alcorn County Extension Office free of charge. If you have questions concerning plant diseases and garden clean-up practices, please call the Alcorn County Extension office at 286-7755 or go to the web at

Soil preparation remains crucial to success in the garden BY MSU EXTENSION SERVICE Preparing the soil is one of the most important steps in gardening. If erosion is not a problem, plow or spade clay soils and grassy areas in the fall. Limestone is most effective when applied in the fall. On new garden sites that were lawn areas or were heavily infested with weeds, consider using an approved chemical to kill existing plants before turning the soil. Plow or turn soil to a depth of 7

soil in a new garden site. Starting in early spring, disc or rake the soil several times at regular intervals to keep down weeds and to give a smooth, clod-free planting bed. If you did not plow or spade the garden site in the fall, turn the soil in spring as soon as it is dry enough to work. A good test to determine if the soil can be worked is to mold a handful of soil into a ball. If the ball is not sticky but crumbles readily when pressed with your thumb, the soil is in

good condition. If you did not apply recommended lime to the garden site in the fall, apply both lime and recommended fertilizer in the spring. Plow or spade the soil, spread the lime and fertilizer, and mix it in with a disc, harrow, or rototiller. Pulverize the soil and get a smooth, level surface by raking as soon as possible after turning. This helps to firm the soil, break up clods, and leave a smooth surface for seeding. Soil left in rough

condition for several days after turning in the spring may dry out and form hard clods, making it much more difficult to prepare a good seedbed. Prepare a small garden plot for planting by using a spade, shovel, or spading fork to turn the soil. Use a small tractor or garden tiller for a larger garden. Completely cover all plant material on top of the ground and work it into the soil when the soil is turned. Where the soil is clay and level and likely to stay wet, use a hoe, rake, or

tiller to pull the soil into raised rows that are 10 to 12 inches across on the tops. Let the sides slope gently to the walkways to provide good surface drainage. Conventional row spacing is 36 to 40 inches apart, but spacing depends on a number of factors: equipment, garden size, and vegetables being grown. Rows for vigorously vining vegetables like watermelons, cantaloupes, pumpkins, and winter squash are usually 6 to 8 feet apart.

Accessorize with spring bulbs in flowerbeds Spring is one of my favorite times in the garden as the transition begins from a long, cold winter to gardens full of flowers in summertime. Mississippi has many plant species that bloom very early in the year when the temperatures are still fairly cool. Tulips, daffodils, crocus and hyacinth color the garden when there are few other flowers. However, the downside to these wonderful spring-flowering plants is the foliage begins to look ratty after the flowers are spent. I’m frequently being asked these days when gardeners should remove leaves from daffodils and other bulb species after flowering. My response generally elicits a gasp of horror from the concerned homeowner when I reply, “Don’t touch those daffodil leaves.” The foliage, no matter how ratty it looks, is vital

Pansies are interplanted here with tulips, providing color and camouflage. for flowering next year. There are advocates who say cutting off half the foliage or folding it in half and securing it with rubber bands will not affect

subsequent years’ flowering. I tend to be a purist regarding daffodil foliage and advise that foliage be left alone. Once a week, gently tug

on the foliage; if it readily comes loose, it is time to remove it. Those leaves are gathering sunlight from the ever-lengthening days, and through the

miracle of photosynthesis, converting light energy into sugars used to replenish and increase the size of the bulb. To completely replenish the bulb, the leaves must remain intact for at least six weeks. Deadheading, the removal of spent flower heads, is important for maximizing the stored sugars in the bulb. Deadhead hyacinths, daffodils and tulips to avoid energy being wasted on seed production. So now you know why I give homeowners this bad news, but what are you supposed to do about it? To borrow an idea from the apparel industry, we need to accessorize our spring-flowering bulbs. A neat trick I learned while visiting the Missouri Botanic Garden in St. Louis is to interplant bulbs with early spring annuals. At MGB, they plant pansies once their tulips and daffodils have

begun to emerge. By waiting for these plants to peek out of the soil, the garden staff does not damage any of the tulips or daffodils. The pansies provide cover and color before the tulips flower, and then help hide the foliage as it begins its decline. You could also interplant your bulbs with flowering perennials that would hide the declining foliage of the bulbs. Perennials require less work in the garden than planting annuals each year. Remember that gardening should be fun. The garden is a place to try new plants and different plant combinations. Accessorizing your spring-flowering bulbs gives you the opportunity to try different plant combinations. The worst thing that can happen is you do not like the combination you created. The remedy is very easy -- try something else next year.

Canning benefits: Preserve garden foods for eating year-round BY BONNIE COBLENTZ MSU Ag Communications

One of the best things about Mississippi summers is the delicious food provided by fresh garden vegetables, a goodness people can enjoy yearround with preserved vegetables. Brent Fountain, human nutrition specialist with the Mississippi State University Extension Service, said fresh may be best, but it isn’t the only option. Freezing or canning fruits and vegetables will extend the time in which garden produce can be eaten. “There really is not a lot of change in nutritional value after blanching

fruit and vegetables and freezing them or when canning them,” Fountain said. “You do lose texture and you should expect the product to be much softer when it is thawed, but their nutritional content generally holds up well.” Canning was once the preferred way to preserve foods at home, but freezing has become a more popular way to prolong the garden’s bounty. “Canning continues to be an acceptable way to preserve foods, but it is important to follow the specific directions for different vegetables and fruits to prevent foodborne illness,” Fountain

said. “Commercial canning typically requires a lot of sodium. While the nutritional content of the food will remain essentially the same, it will have a higher sodium content, which could be an issue for those attempting to limit their sodium intake.” Freezing garden fruits and vegetables is a fairly simple preservation method. Fountain recommended blanching all vegetables and most fruits before putting them in the freezer. “Wash the vegetables first to remove dirt or fertilizer residue, and peel those that you want to preserve without the skin.

Immerse the product in boiling water for 10-15 seconds, then put it directly into ice-cold water to prevent them from continuing to cook,” Fountain said. Blanching deactivates the spoilage enzymes in fruits and vegetables and kills any surface organisms on the fruits or vegetables. Fountain said blanching also preserves the food at a higher quality than when freezing without blanching. While preserved vegetables are good for the body, science does not fully understand why fresh vegetables are still best. The secret appears to be in the

phytonutrients. “Fresh fruits and vegetables contain literally thousands of phytonutrients, and we’ve only studied hundreds of these,” Fountain said. “In addition to protecting the plant, phytonutrients appear to provide some benefit to humans as we consume them.” David Nagel, Extension vegetable specialist, had some tips on growing vegetables to be preserved for later consumption. “If you’re going to grow vegetables to preserve, grow determinate varieties that will have a concentrated harvest so you can get most of them off

the plants in a very short time,” Nagel said. “This allows you to put the food up in quantity rather than in small amounts throughout the growing season.” When planting a garden, select the variety and quantity of plants according to how and when the produce will be used. Mississippi’s climate provides the opportunity for gardening nearly every month of the year. A wealth of information on vegetable production is available from the MSU Extension Service’s Garden Tabloid. Ask for publication P1091 at your local county Extension office.

Tips on adding fresh color to kitchen cabinets For Daily Corinthian

Many homeowners dream of giving their kitchens a full-scale remodel. Though such a project can give a kitchen an entirely new look, that look does not come cheap. According to Remodeling magazine’s 2013 “Cost vs. Value Report,” homeowners can expect to spend more than $53,000 on a major kitchen remodel and recoup just below 70 percent of that cost at resale. So while the idea of a full-scale kitchen remodel might be a dream project, the cost of such an undertaking is beyond many homeowners’ budgets. But homeowners who cannot afford a full remodel can still give their kitchens a new look and can do so for relatively little money. Painting kitchen cabinets a new color or simply giving fading cabinets a fresh coat of paint can instantly add life to a kitchen, giving the room an entirely different feel without breaking the bank. The following are a few tips for homeowners planning to paint their kitchen cabinets. • Assess your existing cabinets. Some cabinet materials, including wood and metal, can be repainted without much of a fuss. But other materials, including plastic laminate, are not so amenable to repainting, and will likely require specialty paints. Homeowners with plastic laminate cabinets should first paint a spot or two with a sample paint, being careful to choose a spot that’s concealed. If the paint bonds well to the plastic laminate, then you can go forward and buy enough paint to redo all of the cabinets. If the paint does not take, consult a professional to find a paint that’s likely to be a better fit. Expect this process to be one of trial and error. • Plan for ornate cabinets to take a little longer. Painting projects will go faster when cabinets have flat fronts, but they can take considerably longer when cabinets are unique and more detailed. If your cabinets are ornate, then factor this extra time into your

Freshly painted cabinets can give a kitchen an entirely new and fresh look at a fraction of the cost of a full-scale kitchen remodel. schedule. • Remove the doors and hardware. When painting cabinets, it’s best to essentially disassemble them, removing the doors, handles, knobs, latches, and any additional hardware. When removing hardware, be sure to set them aside in clearly marked plastic bags so it’s easier to reassemble the cabinets once the fresh coat of paint has dried. As doors are removed, number each door and its corresponding location, much like products that require assembly are numbered at the factory. This makes it easier to reassemble and ensures the cabinets and their hinges will align properly once you have finished painting. • Don’t paint dirty surfaces. Cabinet surfaces have likely collected their share of dirt,

grease and grime over the years, so you want to clean these surfaces thoroughly before painting. Once surfaces have been cleaned, rinse them off and give them ample time to dry. • Sand the surfaces. Once the surfaces have been cleaned and are completely dry, it’s time to start sanding them. Lightly sand the doors using a wood sanding block, working to create a firm base to which fresh paint can easily adhere. Areas that are most exposed to wear and tear may require some extra elbow grease, and some areas may be especially flaky. When old paint is flaking off, this means the previous finish did not adhere very well to the surface, which is not necessarily uncommon in kitchens, where moisture and grease residue can make it harder for paint to

adhere to the surface. In such instances, sand the flaky areas to the bare wood before spotpriming with a primer or sealer designed for areas with heavy staining. After all of the sanding is complete, vacuum the surfaces to ensure there is no leftover sanding dust before painting. • Apply primer-sealer. Primer-sealer ensures the fresh paint will bond well to the surfaces, preventing conditions like flaking in the future. • Paint the cabinets. After the primer-sealer has been applied, it’s time to paint the cabinets. Begin with the inside edges and openings of the face frames, followed by the outer cabinet sides and then the front of the frames. Then move on to the cabinet doors and any drawer fronts you might be painting as well. Cabinets with more elaborate

designs require closer attention to detail than flat cabinets. When painting, opt for thin coats, which dry more quickly and also create fewer visible brushstrokes. When applying multiple coats, allow the paint ample time to dry between coats. Four hours between coats is a good rule of thumb, and lightly resand all surfaces before applying the second and final coat of paint. • Reassemble the cabinets. Once the final coat of paint has fully dried, carefully reassemble your cabinets and then enjoy the fresh and inexpensive new look that your freshly painted cabinets have created. Freshly painted cabinets can give a kitchen an entirely new and fresh look at a fraction of the cost of a full-scale kitchen remodel.

Get a head start on potential pond weed problems BY WES NEAL Associate Extension Professor, Fisheries MSU Extension Service

The birds are singing, the flowers are blooming, and yes, the weeds are starting to grow in your fishing pond. Don’t let them get out of hand. Start your weed management program early, before the problem becomes too difficult to treat. Prevention is the best way to avoid weed problems. Shallow areas where light reaches the pond bottom are ideal for the growth of rooted aquatic weeds. Deepening pond edges so that the water depth quickly reaches 3 feet helps reduce weeds. For safety, make the slope 3:1, or one foot deeper for every three feet farther from shore. Another way to prevent rooted weeds from growing is by fertilizing the water to stimulate the production of microscopic plants that shade the pond bottom. Ponds with existing weed problems should not be fertilized, as this will only stimulate the growth of the weeds. Fertilization is not a good option for stock watering ponds. To help prevent weeds from becoming established, stock triploid grass carp at about five fish per acre in new or weedfree ponds. Too many or too few nutrients can lead to weed growth. Excess nutrients from livestock or other sources can run off into a pond and lead to weed problems, especially algae. Duckweed and watermeal also thrive in nutrient-rich waters, especially in dry winters when ponds are not flushed out by rainwater. Prevention is the best approach, but if weeds do become a problem, the first step in weed control is to identify the problem weed. The most effective control measures vary with the kind of plant, so be sure to identify the plant accurately. Your local MSU Extension Service office can help with identification, and there are several good online resources available. Once you know the weed,

Prevention is the best way to control pond weeds, such as this American pondweed growing in Clay County in 2008, but physical, mechanical, biological and chemical control measures can be used once weeds become established. so disturbing these plants may make matters worse. Floating weeds often are blown into a corner of the pond, where they can be scooped out with a fine mesh net. Biological control, such as adding grass carp, is effective for some types of aquatic weeds. Grass carp prefer tender, succulent vegetation submerged in the water, such as hydrilla, pondweed and naiad. They will not control tough, fibrous plants that grow up out of the water, such as alligatorweed and cattails. Other types of weeds may or may not be eaten by grass carp, depending on how hungry the fish become, and results may not be predictable. Chemical control of aquatic

there are four forms of weed control: physical, mechanical, biological, and chemical. These control measures are usually most effective when combined. Physical control may include using pond dyes to shade out plants, adding liners to prevent rooting, or deepening the pond edges. Pond dyes are often not effective, and liners can be prohibitively expensive. Pond deepening, however, is a good, long-term solution to many weed problems. Mechanical control includes cutting or pulling plants. It is possible for small ponds or isolated patches of weeds, but weeds that are cut often grow back and have to be cut again. Also, some plants can form new plants from small fragments,

weeds is the last resort in weed management. Spot treatments of weedy areas usually can be accomplished without problems, but when whole-pond treatments are required, accurate measurement of the pond area is important. Visually estimating the area of a pond is quite difficult, even for “experts,” but it is necessary to get an accurate estimate so that herbicide dosage can be calculated correctly. The best time to treat aquatic weeds with herbicide is during the spring when the plants are growing rapidly and water temperatures are cooler, around 70 to 80 degrees. Decomposition of weeds killed by herbicides removes oxygen from the water and can

even result in a fish kill, especially in the summer months. When using a fast-acting herbicide, treating only a section at a time will reduce the chances of oxygen problems. Unless the herbicide is intended for whole pond application, treating only a portion of the weeds at a time allows affected weeds to decompose before the next application. Mississippi State Extension publication 1532, “Weed control guidelines for Mississippi – 2014,” provides the latest information on approved herbicides and which plant species they control, as well as use restrictions and other valuable information.

Tips on weed control, taking care of lawn Spring has arrived in Alcorn County and yards are starting to green-up across the Crossroads area. I have received several calls and have made several home visits concerning different lawn weeds thus far this year. Most of the common weeds I have seen include henbit (has a nice purple flower), chickweed, wild garlic and onions, Carolina geranium and several species of dock and plantain. Most of these are what we term broadleaves. To control broadleaves you can use herbicides that contain 2,4-D. This is a very common broadleaf weed killer. It is found in a variety of different commercial mixes, you just have to check the label. You must be particularly careful when using not only this herbicide but others as well. As the weather gets hotter, the ac-

tivity of 2,4-D will increase. Be sure to always follow the label directions for mixing and always make sure that the wind is not blowing and that you are wearing protective garments if you have a sensitivity to herbicides. Remember that the label is the law. Also keep in mind that off target drift can be a real problem especially if you are spraying around flower beds, trees, etc. so be mindful of where you are spraying. If your yard is like my yard you have several areas that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have grass in them at all.

In my case I had several areas to die last year due to the erosion. To deal with this type of problem you may be looking at a replanting type situation. I would first recommend getting a soil test to make sure you have the needed nutrients in the soil to sustain growth of the grass. These soil samples cost just $6 each to have them analyzed, but they can save you money in the long run. Soil samples kits can be picked up at the Alcorn County Extension Service office free of charge. Below, I have enclosed a

chart that lists the planting rates of the most common types of grasses that are used in the home lawn. Planting dates for most of the grasses listed below will range from April until the end of June. Also remember that traditionally we will have a cold snap sometime in April. This isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always the case but it is a good idea to keep this in mind and not get in too big of a hurry when it comes to planting. Keep in mind that you can also sow sprigs of bermudagrass, centipede, and zoysiagrass. If you have trouble figuring out just how much of a 1,000 square foot area you have you can use the following formula. Multiply the length in feet by the width in feet, if the area is a square or rectangle. If your area is smaller than 1,000 square feet, then divide the actual area by 1,000. Then

multiply that decimal figure by the recommended lime and fertilizer rates. For example: If you have a plot that measures 16â&#x20AC;&#x2122; by 24â&#x20AC;&#x2122;, the area will equal 384 square feet (16x24=384). 384 divided by 1000 = .384. Next multiply .384 by your fertilizer rate. If 3 pounds of 8-8-8 are recommended per 1,000 square feet, you would multiply .384 by 3 and get 1.15 pounds of 8-8-8 for this plot that measures 16â&#x20AC;&#x2122;x24â&#x20AC;&#x2122;. As always if you have not soil tested you need to do this immediately. Based upon soil recommendations you will need to go ahead and add lime to your lawn at this time. If you have questions concerning any of the above information, call the Alcorn County Extension Service at 286-7755. You can also look up this topic on the worldwide web at web address:

Prepare lawn equipment before first use in the spring BY BONNIE COBLENTZ MSU Extension Service

Before preparing the yard for springâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arrival, homeowners should make sure their lawn-care equipment is safe and up to the challenge. Herb Willcutt, safety specialist with the Mississippi State University Extension Service, said homeowners can handle most lawn and garden equipment maintenance if they take a little time to study the operatorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; manual and know the basics of simple 2- and 4-cycle engines. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Consult the operatorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manual for troubleshooting, and proper servicing and regular maintenance schedules,â&#x20AC;? Willcutt said. When bringing equipment out of winter storage, start by checking all

oil reservoirs for proper levels. Fill the fuel tank with clean, properly mixed fuel for 2-cycle engines, and clean gasoline or diesel for other engines. Donny Sanders, president of Martin Truck and Tractor in Columbus, urged homeowners to change the oil in their equipment before even starting the engine. Check the air pressure in tires, and check the air filter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My personal recommendation is to change the filter every year in a lawn mower because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in a very dusty environment,â&#x20AC;? Sanders said. If the equipment has a hydraulic system, check and probably change this systemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s filter. If the equipment has a battery, check the fluid levels in the battery, refilling with

Willcutt said to make sure battery cable connections are corrosion-free, and clean these with a wire brush and a mixture of water and baking soda if they are not. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the engine will turn with the starter, start the engine. If not, test the battery further by charging it for a period of time with a portable charger or by boosting it with an auto-

mobile battery,â&#x20AC;? Willcutt said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once the engine starts, operate it for a few minutes before stopping it and again checking all fluid levels.â&#x20AC;? Engines that do not turn when cranked may need professional servicing. Sharpen cutting blades on all pieces of equipment before their first use in the spring. Make sure they are firmly reattached

with the proper bolts and hardware. On lawnmowers, check that the discharge chute is in place and directs grass clippings and debris down into the ground rather than allowing them to be thrown out the side. Check any belts for wear, including nicks or tears. Remove the shields around them and clear any debris. Replace worn belts, adjust tension as needed, and lubricate spindle bearings according to instructions in the operatorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manual. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Replace shields and guards and inspect to be sure they are in place and functioning properly,â&#x20AC;? Willcutt said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Belt guards not only prevent fingers and other body parts from being injured, but they also keep debris

from collecting around the belts, which can prematurely wear them and could cause a fire when the belt rubs dry material.â&#x20AC;? Do all service work with safety in mind. Remove the spark plug wire before working on a mower, and use blocks to support equipment that has been raised up for work. Proper maintenance in the spring and any time the equipment is in use will prolong its life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The need to replace equipment is dependent on the type of use the unit receives and its care and maintenance,â&#x20AC;?

Ideas to help restore secondhand furniture For the Daily Corinthian

Men and women furnish their homes and apartments in various ways. For some, home furnishings are an extension of their personalities, while others prioritize budget over style when furnishing their domiciles. Secondhand furniture has long been used to furnish homes and apartments. While young people working with tight budgets and living in their first apartments might be the most likely to rely on secondhand furniture, such items are not exclusive to recent college graduates and young professionals. Homeowners with a love of antiques or those who simply canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t resist thrift store bargains also are likely to lean on secondhand furniture. Used furnishings range from expensive highend antiques to bargain bin chairs and couches

found in thrift stores or purchased online. Pricey antiques often come fully restored, but that still leaves legions of shoppers who need to bring their secondhand furnishings back to life. The following are a few ways to do just that. â&#x20AC;˘ Embrace your inner Picasso. A fresh coat of paint can go a long way toward stylizing secondhand furniture. Items that have been through a lot before making it to your home may benefit from some sanding before receiving a fresh coat of paint. Once items have been sanded, smoothed and cleaned, apply some primer before dusting off your paintbrush. Primer makes it easier for the fresh coat of paint to bond to the furniture, making it less likely that the new coat will chip or crack in the months to come. After applying

primer, the painting can commence. Two to three coats should be sufficient to give the item a fresh new look. Allow the item to dry for several hours before showing it off and putting it to good use. â&#x20AC;˘ Upgrade old upholstery. Old chairs and couches tend to have ample wear and tear. But such items are still useful as long as their bones are still sturdy, even if cushions have flattened out and fabric is suffering from tears or stains. Reupholstering old furniture can turn inexpensive but worn down older items into seemingly brand new pieces at a fraction of the cost of new furniture. According to Better Homes and Gardens magazine, the following supplies are necessary to successfully reupholster furniture: - needle-nose pliers - camera or notepaper

and pencil - marking pen - scissors - staple gun and staples, 3â &#x201E;8- or 5â &#x201E;16-inch - 1â &#x201E;2-inch batting - upholstery fabric (chairs typically require 5 yards) - straight pins - 5â &#x201E;32-inch welt cord - sewing machine upholstery-weight thread - tack strips - fabric glue, optional - upholstery tacks or nailhead trim, optional - black breathable fabric for the underside of furniture Reupholstering furniture can be a tedious process, and one novices might want to leave to the professionals. The cost of reupholstering secondhand furniture bought at a garage sale, thrift store or private seller online is likely still less expensive than buying a new piece, so you might still make

out in the long run. If reupholstering proves too expensive but the furniture still has ample and comfortable cushioning, consider employing a slip cover to hide stained or torn upholstery. Slip covers are typically inexpensive, and they can be purchased in various colors. â&#x20AC;˘ Wash away years of wear and tear. Restoring secondhand furniture can sometimes be as easy as washing away years of wear and tear. Old chests of drawers, dressers or armoires might just need a good scrubbing to look as good as new. Before cleaning older furniture, remove the old wax with a stripper bought at a hardware store. Old coats of wax can prevent cleaners from reaching the surface of the furniture, so they must be removed for cleaning products to be effective. When cleaning old fur-

niture, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good idea to solicit advice from antique dealers, who can help you avoid damaging the piece even further. A small amount of dishwashing liquid mixed with warm water can be used to gently clean old wax off of furniture. When applying such a mixture, be careful to avoid soaking the item or letting the mixture pool on its surface. Work slowly, gradually cleaning small areas one by one and wiping them down with a damp cloth to ensure wax and other residue has vanished completely. Once the item has been thoroughly cleaned and been given ample time to dry, you can apply a new coat of wax. Older furniture can be both practical and chic, and there are many ways to bring such items back to life without breaking the bank.

Helpful tips on how to repair and replace window screens For the Daily Corinthian

Window screens can let fresh air into a home while preventing insects and outdoor critters from making their way inside. But screens are far less effective at keeping critters out of a home when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re damaged. Addressing such damage is typically an easy do-it-yourself project, one that begins with gathering the right materials, including: â&#x20AC;˘ new screening, either synthetic or aluminum â&#x20AC;˘ a rubber spline â&#x20AC;˘ a screen rolling tool â&#x20AC;˘ a razor knife or sharp scissor

â&#x20AC;˘ measuring tape â&#x20AC;˘ masking tape â&#x20AC;˘ a screwdriver or an awl Once those materials have been gathered, the process of replacing or repairing damaged screens is rather simple. 1. Measure the area of the window to determine how much replacement screening you will need. Remember to leave extra room in your measurements so you have slack to make the new screen fit taut. The measurement will also help you determine how much spline you will need. 2. Remove the screen

from the window frame. Some windows do not have removable screen frames, and you will have to work on the screen in its upright position. 3. Use the screwdriver or awl to pry the edge of the existing spline that holds the screening material in the frame. Pull out the old spline and remove the damaged screening. 4. Measure the new screening from a replacement roll. Lay the screening down on the frame, ensuring there is overhang on all sides. If necessary, use masking tape to temporarily secure the screening to the frame

edge of the frame, pulling the new screening taut as you go. This helps to keep it free of wrinkles. 7. Once you have inserted the spline all the way around, cut it off from the spline spool and push in the edge. 8. Use a razor knife or sharp scissor to cut off the excess screening, being careful not to dislodge it from behind the spline when cutting. 9. Replace the screen in the window. In the case of small tears in a screen, a complete replacement may not be necessary. Home improvement stores sell

screen patch kits. Some work by cutting out a piece of patch that is attached to an adhesive backing and sticking it over the hole. Other patches are small, woven wires that can be threaded through the hole in the screen. A really small hole can be mended with a drop of clear-drying glue. The same method of screen replacement can be used to replace screens on screened-in porches, aluminum doors or sliding patio doors. Just be sure to purchase replacement screening that will fit the dimensions.

while freeing up your hands. This also works if you must replace screening vertically and cannot remove the window frame and make repairs on a flat surface. 5. Take a new piece of rubber spline and push it into the edge of the screen frame, securing a corner of the new screening to the frame. Continue to press the spline around the perimeter of the screen frame firmly into the groove with the screen rolling tool, which looks like a small pizza cutter. This effectively secures the screen into the frame. 6. Continue around the

Family remodels second floor of historic house BY ZACK STEEN

The spacious Greek Revival home at the corner of Main and Fillmore Streets in downtown Corinth was the first in the city to boast indoor plumbing when it was built in 1888. More than 125 years later, the home and its current occupants have been experiencing major plumbing issues. In fact, for the past several years Robert and Sallie Kate Williams and their three children have used the same bathroom in the nearly 4,000 square feet home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The kids had to stop using the upstairs bathrooms, because of the old cast iron drain pipes had corroded,â&#x20AC;? said Robert. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been very tough on all of us using one bathroom for five people, especially as the kids get older.â&#x20AC;? The family decided in January to start phase two of a remodel that originally started when the newly married couple first moved into the home in 1999. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We renovated the kitchen, master bathroom and bedroom downstairs,â&#x20AC;? said the home owner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We put in central heat and air and rewired the lower level.â&#x20AC;? Now the Williamses are focusing on the upstairs by remodeling two bathrooms and adding one new bathroom and closet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All the improvements weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re been working on this year has been for our kids,â&#x20AC;? said Sallie Kate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to modernize this old home a little for them.â&#x20AC;? The two original bathrooms upstairs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; one connected to 10-year-old Mimiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s room and the other connected to 4-yearold Kate Walkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s room â&#x20AC;&#x201C; were completely gutted. The family hired Mary

Katherine Butler to help with layout and design. Chris Tays was then hired to head up the construction work which included removing old plaster from the walls, removing out dated wiring, tearing out old cast iron pipes and floor tile. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The last update those

bathrooms saw had to of been in the 1950s,â&#x20AC;? said Robert, who found the date 1951 stamped on the bottom of a tile removed from the floor during the demotion process. A room that had acted as Mimiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s art and play space was transformed into 7-year-old Treyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

bathroom, which now features a walk-in shower. New elegant wood porcelain tile is highlighted on the walls of the shower, while the floor features a natural pebble tile. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I got the idea for Treyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shower from Pintrest,â&#x20AC;? said Sallie Kate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love the way the wood tile looks.â&#x20AC;? The family also closed in what was an exterior porch in Mimiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bedroom near the back of the house. The old porch was enclosed and turned into a walk-in closet for the familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oldest daughter. According to Robert, around half a dozen doors

were removed from the upstairs area. In the late 1800s, homes in the Deep South were built with multiple doors to help with air flow. In the process of the remodel, the Williamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; learned a few things about what their home used to look like. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The room where Treyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bathroom was apparently an exterior porch at one time,â&#x20AC;? added Robert. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Underneath the flooring we found fish scale siding that matches what was on the outside of the home. Stuff like this, we had no clue about prior to the remodel.â&#x20AC;?

The couple are quick to admit remodeling an old home takes much longer than intended to complete. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has taken so long time on phase two,â&#x20AC;? said Robert. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A person just never knows what they are getting into with these older homes.â&#x20AC;? As summer approaches and the remodel creeps into month number five, the family finally sees light at the end of tunnel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the contractors have about one week left of work to do,â&#x20AC;? added Robert. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our job to start cleaning up and moving everything back into place.â&#x20AC;?

Remodeling project turns up pieces of history BY ZACK STEEN

Joel Garrison signed his name to the back of the window casing 126 years ago. Garrison noted the date as Saturday, May 12, 1888.

About a dozen hand crafted, rare, square top nails. Robert Williams and his daughter, Kate Walker, look over the window casing found inside the house.

A recent afternoon of upstairs remodeling quickly turned into a treasure hunt for Robert and Sallie Kate Williams. As carpenters continued working on one of three new bathrooms being added onto the second floor of the historic Greek Revival home at the corner of Main and Fillmore Streets in Corinth, the couple stayed busy studying their findings. Robert and Sallie Kate moved into the home in 1999 and have since started their own family. Their oldest daughter Mimi is 10 years old, their only son, Trey, is 7 years old, and their youngest daughter, Kate Walker, is 4. “An old magazine and a jar of pomade hair gel from the 1950s was found in the wall of the bedroom where my dad and uncle grew up,” said Robert. “It’s pretty amazing to find something like this. Rather daddy can remember it or not, it still gives me goose bumps.” Robert was referring to Bailey Williams as the home has remained in the Williams family for four generations. The amazing finds didn’t stop there. Workers later discovered about a dozen rare handcrafted square top nails inside a wall. According to Robert, the best discover came when workers pried from the wall an old window casing in one of the bathrooms. On the back handwritten in pencil was the date the window casing was originally installed and the wood worker’s name. Joel Garrison signed his name to the back of the window casing 126 years ago. Garrison noted the date as Saturday, May 12,

Robert Williams shows the letter written to family by his great-grandfather about the purchase of the home in 1934.

“It’s so amazing to find a connection like this.” Robert Williams Homeowner 1888. “It’s as if it was written yesterday,” said Robert. “It’s so amazing to find a connection like this.” Robert plans to shadow box the findings to hang next to another piece of Williams’ history. “My great-grandfather first purchased this home in 1934 for my grandfather, Fayette Williams, and my grandmother,” said Robert. “I have the letter my great-grandfather mailed to family regarding the house purchase.” The home’s previous owner was J.E. Gift, a banker for the Corinth Bank & Trust Co. for whom the Gift community in Alcorn County is named. According to Robert, Gift lost the house during the 1930s Depression at which time his greatgrandfather purchased the nearly 4,000 square feet home for just $500.

Growing basil remains perfect for home gardens BY MSU EXTENSION SERVICE Of all the herbs that can be grown successfully in Mississippi gardens, basil is likely the most versatile. Basil can be used as a showy ornamental, it’s fragrance and flowers are great in fresh flower bouquets and, of course, there are some very delicious culinary creations enhanced by the awesome taste of this easily grown garden herb. Gardeners who are experienced at growing herbs know that there are quite a few choices of basil that could easily fill up the garden and the landscape. There are four delightful groups of basil to choose from that include sweet green basil, dwarf green basil, purple-leaved basil and scented leaf basil. It’s easy to get caught up in basil-mania once you start to explore all the possible cultivars and their attractive characteristics.

Basil is a versatile, easy-grow herb addition to any home garden. Sweet basil usually grows to about 24 inches. The leaves of sweet basil are 2 - 3 inches long and it produces white flower spikes. Genovese ba-

sil and spicy Thai basil, ‘Siam Queen’ (AAS 1997 winner) are part of this group. Dwarf basil grows to about 12 inches tall with


inch leaves and white flowers. ‘Spicy Globe’ and ‘Green Bouquet’ are two well known dwarf varieties. Scented-leaf basil

brings additional aroma to the garden. One of these, lemon basil, actually has a very distinct lemon flavor. Lemon basil ‘Sweet Dani’ is a 1998 AAS winner. The leaves are grayish green and the flowers are white. Two others to consider are cinnamon basil and anise basil. Cinnamon basil has a spicy cinnamon flavor and pink flowers with purple bracts. Anise basil is licorice-flavored and purple-flowered. Purple-leaved basils are considered very ornamental but are also quite edible. The purple leaves are ruffled, frilled or deeply cut and flower spikes produce showy deep pink to lavender-purple flowers. Some of the more popular varieties have names like ‘Purple Ruffles’, ‘Red Rubin’ and ‘Dark Opal’. ‘Purple Ruffles’ is a 1987 AAS winner and is a 1994 Mississippi Medallion recipient. Basil can easily be sown directly in warm garden

soil after nighttime temperatures are 55 degrees consistently. Select a sunny, well-drained site. Add a little organic matter if the soil is very sandy. Seeds should sprout quickly. When plants are about 4 inches tall, give them their first pinch to increase branching. For dwarf basils, thin seedlings to about 12 inches apart. For the larger growing varieties, thin to about 30 inches apart. When harvesting basil for the kitchen, cut entire stems. What isn’t used fresh is easily dried and will store all winter. For best flavor, harvest before flowering begins. However, basil makes an excellent cut flower by itself, with other basils or with a mixed bouquet from the flower garden. As you are planning this year’s garden consider adding one or several basils. The easy-to-grow basils add beauty and flavor to Mississippi gardens.

Proper cleanup can reduce garden pests and other problems BY SUSAN COLLINSSMITH MSU Ag Communications

Gardeners can keep insects and diseases under control and make spring planting easier with a little bit of cleanup right now. “Good sanitation is one of the easiest and most economical methods of insect and disease control in the vegetable garden,” said Rebecca Bates, Mississippi State University Extension Service Lincoln County coordinator. In vegetable gardens, plants should be removed as soon as production stops. Any live plant material will continue to provide food for insect pests

and allow them to mature and multiply. “As soon as the plant has produced the last ear of corn or other vegetable, it is a good idea to go ahead and pull it up,” said Blake Layton, Extension entomology specialist. “If you remove the plant, any immature insects that are present will not be able to mature.” Bates recommends composting non-diseased plant debris. However, disease-affected plants should be burned or bagged and disposed of in the trash. Plants affected by insects can be safely composted. “Once the plants are removed from the ground,

they will die, and insects won’t live long after the plant is removed from the ground,” Layton said. The same diseases that hibernate in remaining plant debris can also overwinter in stakes and on other reusable equipment, then reemerge in the spring garden. Bates said a thorough cleaning with a mixture of one part bleach to nine parts water should be enough to remove any lingering disease particles. “A lot of people don’t think about washing their stakes,” she said. “But it is an important step in helping keep next year’s garden free of insects and disease, espe-

cially if wooden stakes are used. Diseases can get into the wood fibers and live there until next year.” After removing plants and stakes, take a soil sample and then spread mulch or plant a cover crop. Mulch and cover crops, such as vetch or clover, reduce weeds and help conserve moisture in the soil. Both options will improve the soil’s organic matter, and a cover crop will provide nitrogen, she said. A soil test measures the soil’s available nutrients and determines what types and amounts of fertilizer are needed. “This is an ideal time

to take a soil sample and submit it for testing if it’s been more than three years since one was done,” Bates said. “If limestone is needed, it is best to apply it in the fall because it has time to react with the soil and is more beneficial to spring plants.” Those who keep a written garden plan each year can reduce work and increase yields. “No matter how large or small a garden is, it is a good idea to plan what will be planted where,” Bates said. “Plants spaced too closely together do not get enough air flow or sunlight, which can cause insect and disease problems. Plans can be kept

to reflect on to see what worked and what didn’t and to help keep track of plant rotation.” Garden tools stored for the winter months should be thoroughly cleaned first, Bates said. “I use my tools every month of the year, but it is important to clean them if you will be storing them for the winter months,” she said. “Removing the soil and applying a coat of oil, such as motor oil, will keep the tools from rusting.” For more information, visit the local Extension office or download The Garden Tabloid, P1091, and Soil Testing for the Homeowner, IS1294.

Beekeeping can be fun and profitable BY MARINA D’ABREAU DENNY Natural Resource Enterprises MSU Extension Service

If thoughts of keeping bees have been buzzing in your head, you’re not alone. “Beekeeping can be a fascinating hobby, a profitable sideline, or a fulltime occupation,” said Jeffrey Harris, beekeeping specialist with the Mississippi State University Extension Service. Mississippi is home to approximately 12 fulltime commercial beekeepers, 35 part-time honey producers, and several hundred hobbyists. The state ranks twenty-eighth in the nation in honey production, with about 2.25 million pounds of honey produced each year. Mississippi beekeepers tend about 16,000 colonies of bees, compared to 932,000 colonies in the nation’s top-producing states. However, the magnolia state leads the country in yield -- a whopping 98 pounds of honey per colony. You can start a colony

Beekeeping is a popular activity in Mississippi. The state has 12 full-time commercial beekeepers, 35 part-time honey producers and several hundred hobbyists. pretty much any time of year in the South, but spring is ideal because it gives the colony enough time to get established. Additionally, you’ll have better opportunities in the spring and summer to observe your bees and learn their behaviors. There are several op-

tions for getting started in the bee business, whether for fun or profit: • buying package bees; • purchasing a nucleus colony, or nuc; • buying established colonies; • collecting swarms; and • taking bees out of

trees and walls. Most novice beekeepers will start with either a package or nuc. The downside to purchasing a nuc or an established colony is that you also might be buying another beekeeper’s problems, such as disease. The last two options are not rec-

ommended for novice beekeepers. You’ll want to start with at least two colonies of bees, just in case something goes wrong with the queen in one of the hives. A frame of eggs and young larvae from the second hive can be given to the queen-less unit so they can raise a new queen. At a minimum, you’ll need a veil, hive tool and bee smoker. The veil keeps bees away from your head because stings on the head can be quite painful. You can purchase a special hat to hold the veil, but a well-fitting wide brimmed hat will do as well. The bee smoker keeps the bees from becoming agitated, allowing the beekeeper to work in peace. Optional accessories include a bee suit, bee gloves, and high top boots. Combined with a veil and hat, a beekeeper can be well-protected from bee stings during normal beekeeping operations. You can build a beehive from new materials, but it is better to purchase

a hive that has had bees in it for at least a year to lessen the risk of stressing out the bees and reducing your potential honey crop. The best time to buy bees is in the spring, to ensure that you get a viable hive with a good laying queen. To harvest your honey crop, you’ll first need to separate the combs of honey from the bees, which is called pulling the honey. Once you pull the honey, you can extract it yourself or ask an experienced beekeeper to extract it for you. Extracted honey needs to be strained through cheesecloth or nylon and then stored in a warm place in a tall container. This allows the fine impurities to rise to the top. The ideal storage container will have an outlet at the bottom so the clean, warm honey can be drawn from the bottom directly into the honey containers. (For more information about beekeeping for fun or for profit, contact Jeffrey Harris, MSU Extension beekeeping specialist at 662-325-2976.)

Home improvement tips learned the hard way For the Daily Corinthian

‘Tis the season for home improvement projects, and weekend warriors will soon be visiting home supply retailers to buy everything from paint to plywood. There are many advantages to making home improvements on your own, including the opportunity to test your mettle at projects big and small. Many a novice DIYer has learned the ups and downs of home improvement through trial and error. But the following are a handful of lessons firsttimers can heed before beginning their maiden voyages into the world of DIY home improvements. • Measure twice, cut once. Perhaps this is the best-

known mantra of home improvement, yet many still ignore it. Whether you’re anxious to get started or simply because you still cannot convert metric to standard formula, you must take the time to measure twice before cutting. Learning that you’re a hair too short later will be prove frustrating and time-consuming and often necessitates a lastminute run to the store for more materials. Always measure multiple times before making cuts. • Enlist a helper. Having a partner helping with the work is the most efficient way to tackle a project. This person can assist you with heavy lifting or moving things or by holding the ladder or simply passing tools

your way. He or she also can manage work while you make another run to the home center for more supplies. Having a helper around also provides companionship during tedious projects. • Lighten the load. You run the risk of injury, both to yourself and your belongings, if you attempt to move heavy items on your own. When moving heavy items, take steps to lighten your load. For example, empty or remove drawers from desks and dressers before moving them. Rely on sliding pads when moving furniture so items can be slid into place instead of lifted. Always ask a buddy to help move especially heavy items. • Prime before painting.

Painting can be a timeconsuming task. In an effort to save time, some people will look for painting shortcuts, and these may include skipping the priming portion of painting. Priming helps to cover existing paint color and prevent bleed-through of stains or darker hues to the next coat of paint. Failure to use a primer could mean having to paint coat after coat, which can become costly and take up a significant amount of time. Always rely on a priming product, or look for a paint that blends a primer within to achieve better coverage. And while you are ensuring a proper paint job, remember to use painter’s tape or an edging product to help keep paint off of moldings

and trim. • Use the right tools. The right tools make work safer and easier. Think about how much faster you can cut through a tree trunk with a chainsaw rather than a handsaw. Improvising or using the wrong tools for the job can cost you time and increase your risk of injury. • Turn electricity off at the panel box. Be especially cautious when working with electricity, turning off the current. This means shutting down the power on the breaker box. A live wire can provide a minor shock or lead to serious injury. Take the extra time to ensure the power is off before working with any exposed wiring. • Expect the unexpect-

ed. Although many renovation projects go off without a hitch, you never know what you might uncover when you embark on repairs or remodels. Homeowners have come across all sorts of hidden problems when doing seemingly minor repairs. Removal of drywall may uncover insect damage in beams or indications of water infiltration. Some people take down old paneling, only to discover it was covering heavily damaged walls beneath. One repair project can run into another when home improvements are being made. Always leave breathing room in your budget and schedule extra time for unforeseen tasks as well.
