Over 1,200 register for 10K BY STEVE BEAVERS

The Corinth Coca-Cola Classic 10K is getting better with age. The 31st running of the event is set for 8:30 a.m. Saturday and over 1,240 have registered as of Thursday morning. In last year’s 30th running, a total of 1,289 registered. The high-water mark for the event is 1,326 set in 1991. Co-sponsored by Magnolia Regional Health Center, the 10K has surpassed the 1,096 registration mark of last year. Runners and walkers have until 7 p.m. tonight to register because there is no race day registration for the 31st running in downtown Corinth. “Everyone seems to like the new setup,” said race co-coordinator Amy Smith. “We have not suffered because we aren’t having race day registration,” added race founder Kenneth Williams. “People appreciate the fact that this way eliminates problems.” Organizers decided to do away with the Saturday registration since most of its over 1,200 participants registered online last year. Those who have already registered can pick up their race packets at the Coke Package Pickup building next to the finish line from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. today or on race day from 7-8 a.m. “I am overwhelmed with the

Linda Holt and Sparks were indicted on murder charges by a grand jury after a lengthy police investigation by the Tishomingo Sheriff’s Department, Please see PLEA | 2A

The City of Corinth is wrapping up a drainage improvement project on Alcorn Drive, and others are in the works for several flood-prone spots in the city. The street department has performed the work on the Alcorn Drive project, which is intended to alleviate some of the office flooding that has occurred south of the hospital. The work included installation of a 30inch drainage pipe to divert water to the ditch behind Medical Plaza, as well as the installation of several storm drains. Street Commissioner Jim Bynum said water in recent years has begun to flow across Alcorn Drive during heavy rains, and the project should alleviate the flooding. With its engineering firm, the city is studying several more projects, including the use of underground detention tanks in the area where Hickory Road

person from the seven other churches represented prayed for the government, military, media, business, education, church and family. “The world needs to see unity in God’s people,” said Tate Baptist pastor Mickey Trammel. “We need unity because we represent Jesus Christ in this lost and sinful world.” The local Day of Prayer — in its 20th year is part of the national movement held the first Thursday in May. More than 35,000 prayer gatherings were conducted

by around 40,000 volunteers across the United States. “We have to stay in prayer with each other,” Central Grove Missionary Baptist Church pastor Kelvin Cummings told those gathered. “Families should exist outside the walls of our homes into the community and we should all be a family that prays for one another.” “We are all connected with one another and depend on one another,” added St. Mark Missionary Baptist Church preacher Kim Ratliff as talked about the business world. This year’s theme, “One Nation Under God”, is based on Psalm 33:12 which says “blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.”

Booneville leaders pass smoking ban ordinance BY BRANT SAPPINGTON bsappington@dailycorinthian. com

Smoking will be prohibited in all enclosed public places within the city limits of Booneville under a new ordinance approved this week in a split vote by the board of aldermen. The board voted 3-2 to approve the new ordinance which expands the city’s existing smoking law to restrict smoking in all enclosed public places within the city including any business or other facility open to the public. The law also restricts smoking within 20 feet outside entrances of any enclosed area where smoking is prohibited under the rule and in any outdoor arena or sporting facility. The ordinance was proposed by Ward 4 Alderman David Bolen who said it comes down to an issue of public health and safety. He noted 52 cities in the state currently have comprehensive smoking ordinances similar to this one and he has seen first hand the damage smoking can cause to smokers and to those around them.

“There’s no doubt that it’s unhealthy for you,” said Bolen. Ward 1 Alderman Wilda Pounds, Ward 2 Alderman Jeff Williams joined Bolen in voting in favor of the expanded ordinance. Ward 3 Alderman Mark McCoy and Alderman-atLarge Harold Eaton were opposed. The move comes just over a month after a similar proposal was made by Bolen and rejected by the board on a 3-2 vote with Bolen and Pounds voting in favor and Williams, McCoy and Eaton opposed at that time. Eaton, who introduced the city’s current smoking ordinance which was passed in July 2010 and prohibits smoking only in restaurants and food establishments, said he is opposed to the expanded ordinance because he doesn’t think it can be enforced and the existing rule provides sufficient protection. “I don’t like smoking and I know it is a health hazard,” he said. However, he said he sees no way the expanded ordinance can be fairly enforced in private businesses.

“It can’t be enforced and if you can’t enforce the ordinance why do you want it passed,” he asked. McCoy said he believes it’s unfair for the city to profit from cigarette taxes but pass an ordinance restricting their use. “We want the tax revenue off cigarettes, but don’t want to let people smoke,” he said. He also said he opposes regulating what someone can do inside their own business. “It’s not our place to tell them how to run their business,” said McCoy. The expanded ordinance will go into effect 30 days after it is officially published in the legal notices of the newspaper, said City Attorney Daniel Tucker. It will be enforced by the police department, which will have the authority write citations, and by the public who will be able to swear out an affidavit in municipal court alleging a violation. Penalties will begin at $100 for the first violation, followed by $200 for a second violation and $500 for third and subsequent violations.

We Americans are all Laodiceans now We’re all the 1 percent. Everyone born and raised in America should thank God he or she was placed here in this country. Before complaining about how bad things are here, or pitting the so-called 99 percent against the 1 percent, one should open his eyes to reality in our world today. Americans are materialistically rich and morally bankrupt. Did you know the poorest 5 percent of Americans are Danny richer than nearly 70 percent Gardner of the rest of the world? Did you get that? The poorest 5 Columnist percent among us have more wealth than nearly 70 percent of everybody else living on planet Earth. Comparing America with India, for example, the poorest 5 percent among us are richer than the richest 5 percent of Indians. The median income in the world is the halfway marker of all incomes worldwide, i.e. half of the people in the world have incomes higher or lower than the median, which is around $1,700 per year. Would you like to know how rich you are? Go to this website and type in your income: We Americans are so myopic living in the lap of luxury compared with the rest of the world. A friend in Russia recently told me about taking care of her ailing 61-year old mother-in-law in her small apartment. She and her husband both work regular jobs and are trying to start a small business selling printing and art supplies. She’s also caring for her 60-year old father who cannot work any more, as well as her 63-year old mother who she says works too much. They can’t afford to buy a larger apartment, but hope to rent one soon. Their large car was wrecked before Christmas and they could only afford a very small car for all their family and business needs. As we exchange emails, I feel almost greedy with all the blessings my family enjoys. We have given liberally to those in need both here and abroad, but not nearly liberally enough in comparison with needs around the globe. That’s one reason why when I hear campaigns about spreading the wealth or pitting “us” against “rich folks,” I become nauseated. Do people really want the government to take money from “rich folks” and give more money to “the rest of us” for whatever? We live in the most prosperous nation in the history of the world. America has offered more opportunities and seen more successes of citizens moving from lower classes to the highest classes, and we’re quibbling over the government taking money from the richest people in the word to give to … the richest people in the world. These are Americans who have more opportunities to get richer than any other people on the planet. In the book of Revelation, Jesus told John to write a letter to the “rich folks” in the church at Laodicea telling them “you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked.” We’re all Laodiceans now! I don’t need a president who has taken 17 extravagant family vacations in three years of office, who plays golf weekly, and who parties regularly with A-list celebrities in the White House on my tax dollar telling me what he wants to do with my money. That goes for all the other nincompoops in DC who can’t seem to figure out how to stop spending more than a trillion dollars every year over our revenue. They are the 1 percent of the 1 percent, and they have become emperors and legends in their own minds. They are the epitome of graft in America. (Daniel L.

Is Europe sailing on the Titanic? U.S. growth in the first quarter fell to 2.2 percent, a disappointment. But in Europe, that news would have caused general rejoicing. For consider the gathering crisis on the old continent. With negative growth now for six months, Britain has fallen back into recession. “I don’t think we’re anywhere near halfway through the eurozone crisis,” said Prime Minister David Cameron this weekend. Romania’s government fell last week. The Czech government barely survived a vote of no confidence. In the capital cities of both countries, tens of thousands have angrily protested the new austerity. The Dutch government also fell last week, when the Freedom Party of rightwing populist Geert Wilders abandoned the governing coalition. Wilders refuses to support spending cuts and new taxes needed to meet the hard deficit target of 3 percent of gross domestic product set by the European Union for 2013. The Rome government of Silvio Berlusconi is history. New Prime Minister Mario

Monti says Italy cannot sustain the austerity being imposed upon her. In Spain, Pat u n e m p l o y Buchanan ment has hit 24.4 percent. Columnist Half her young are jobless. “Spain is undergoing a crisis of enormous proportions,” says Foreign Minister Jose Manuel Garcia-Margallo. He compares the EU to the Titanic. French elections are Sunday. Most observers believe they will end the career of President Nicolas Sarkozy and install in the Elysee Palace a socialist, Francois Hollande, who has pledged to impose a 75 percent tax on incomes above 1 million euros. With a few days to go, the French campaign calls to mind the 1930s. Sarkozy, says The New York Times, is focusing on “patriotism, protectionism, French values,” attacking immigrants who do not assimilate. “I do not want to let France be diluted by globalization,” Sarkozy de-

clared Sunday. “Europe has given in too much to free trade and deregulation. ... I do not want France to be isolated in the world, but I want frontiers respected. ... France expects a Europe that protects the European people.” The far-left candidate, Jean-Luc Melanchon, defeated in the first round, is charging Sarkozy with using the language of Pierre Laval and Marshal Philippe Petain, both convicted of collaborating with the Nazis. “To be treated as a fascist by a communist is a compliment,” says Sarkozy. “In 2012, the issue is borders, and I will put them at the center of the debate,” Sarkozy said Sunday in Toulouse, where an Islamist fanatic recently murdered four Jews, including three children, and three French soldiers. “Without borders, there is no nation, there is no Republic, there is no civilization,” he told 10,000 cheering supporters. “We are not superior to others, but we are different.” Sarkozy is on “a mad path,” says Hollande. “The

issue in France and in Europe is the fight against extremism.” Greek elections are also scheduled for Sunday, with the center-left Pasok Party and center-right New Democracy having lost half of their support since 2009. Ireland votes May 31 on the eurozone fiscal pact that calls for austerity among Europe’s most indebted nations. Polls are predicting a yes vote. But Sinn Fein’s Gerry Adams has ridden a rising tide against the pact to make his party the secondmost-popular in Ireland. “The rise in political extremism in Europe,” writes Financial Times columnist Wolfgang Munchau, “is in part the consequence of stubbornness and stupidity among centrist elites.” Where is Europe going? Larry Summers is probably right, “Again Europe and the global economy approach the brink.” With the demonstrations, riots, and governments falling like dominoes, Europe’s ruling elites are losing the confidence of the people and its ruling parties are bleeding support to the more militant left and right.

The Left’s favorite bad statistic ignores reality Archimedes didn’t say, “Give me a bad statistic, and I will move the Earth.” But that was only because the ancient Greek mathematician wasn’t familiar with the ways of Washington. An entire movement has grown up around the factoid that American women make about 80 percent of the pay of men. It is a reliable talking point of Democrats who insist the country is racked by a “War on Women.” A raft of proposed legislation purports to remedy the discrimination exposed by the damning number. It is the only bad statistic with a day devoted to it, “Equal Pay Day,” which falls in April to signify how much longer women have to work into the new year to make what men earned in the previous year. Tradition says that the day must be marked with wailing and gnashing of teeth, and lots of press releases from advocacy organizations. MSNBC host Rachel Maddow recently wielded the statistic on “Meet the Press,” and reacted with shocked disbelief that anyone would question such a cold, hard fact, as if it were as incontestable as the

circumference of the Earth. N e v e r mind that the figure is crude and misleadRich ing. The latest Lowery data from the Labor DeNational partment say Review that women made 82.2 percent of what men made in the first quarter of 2012. That’s a considerable gap, but comparing all women versus all men is not particularly telling when all sorts of variables — occupation, levels of experience, education, hours worked — are in play. “Women gravitate,” Carrie Lukas of the Independent Women’s Forum writes, “toward jobs with fewer risks, more comfortable conditions, regular hours, more personal fulfillment and greater flexibility. Simply put, many women — not all, but enough to have a big impact on statistics — trade higher pay for other desirable job characteristics.” The Institute for Women’s Policy Research, a feminist

outfit obsessed with the wage gap, published a study noting that twice as many women as men work in jobs with median earnings below the federal poverty line for a family of four. Unless all these women — some 5.5 million — were coerced into these positions, this fact alone shows how occupational choice influences the wage gap. The slogan that invariably accompanies the 80 percent statistic is “equal pay for equal work.” But men and women get paid differently for different work. Warren Farrell points out in his book “Why Men Earn More” that the 25 worst jobs in terms of stress and physical demands — occupations like sheet-metal worker and firefighter — are more than 90 percent male. In general, men who are employed full time work more hours a day than women employed full time (8.2 hours compared with 7.8, according to the Labor Department), and women are much more likely to interrupt their careers to have children, affecting their earning power over time. All that notwithstanding, it

is a strange time in history for self-appointed advocates for women to feel oppressed on their behalf. They must have missed the growing literature on “The End of Men” and similar themes. Women earn about 60 percent of bachelor’s and master’s degrees, and are reaching parity with men in medical and law schools. Their attitudes to work are changing. In a historic reversal, more young women ages 18 to 34 (66 percent) than young men (59 percent) say high-paying work is one of the most important things or very important, according to a new Pew survey. In light of all this, it stands to reason that the wage gap will narrow, even if it doesn’t disappear. A study by a research organization called Reach Advisors shows that single women in their 20s make 105 percent of single men in their 20s in urban areas, and 120 percent “in certain cities with a heavily knowledge-driven employment base.” These women must not realize that they will never make their way in the workplace without Congress somehow acting to ensure “equal pay.”

State Briefs Stone County named state’s mural county WIGGINS (AP) — Stone County is now the “Mural County of Mississippi.” Twenty-three murals — some painted, some made of mosaic tile — are located around the county and tell the stories of the area’s ecosystem, people, notable landmarks and industries. Senate Concurrent Resolution 643 was passed by the Senate and House in April. Local officials are planning a mural celebration in June. “(The murals) are the way to tell the story when the storytellers are not there,” Sandra Cassibry, an art instructor at the Perkinston campus of Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, tells the Sun Herald. The project was launched about eight years ago. Cassibry, along with her students and coast artist Elizabeth Veglia, helped create the six mosaic tile murals at Blaylock Park, which depict the longleaf pine, Red Creek, the pickle industry, the timber industry, the train depot and the county courthouse. The courthouse mural, completed in April, is the county’s latest piece and the last to be displayed in Blaylock Park. More than a dozen of the painted murals, including those in the school, libraries and welcome center, were created by Hattiesburg artist Kym Garraway. Grants are pending for two future mural projects, said Kathryn Lewis, director of the Telling Trees Project, an organization focused on documenting and celebrating

the county’s history. Lewis said the designation may help bring more grant dollars for future projects and increased tourist attention to Stone County.

Legislature ends its 2012 session JACKSON (AP) — The Mississippi Legislature has ended its four-month 2012 session. The House and Senate adjourned Thursday afternoon. During their final hours at the Capitol, senators confirmed several people to serve on state boards and House members approved a Senate redistricting plan. It was a busy session. Legislators wrote a $5.6 billion state budget for the year that begins July 1, but they didn’t agree on a bond package to provide long-term financing for economic incentives or repairs of public buildings. Legislators put new limits on the state’s only abortion clinic, made changes to the workers compensation system and approved consolidation of a few school districts. They discussed, but never agreed on, bills to expand charter schools and to strengthen immigration enforcement.

Former education leader dead at 86 LAKE (AP) — E.E. “Tad” Thrash, who led Mississippi’s higher education system for 19 years as it struggled with desegregation issues related to historic black colleges, died Tuesday. He was 86. Officials with Wright and Ferguson Funeral Home said Thursday that funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. Friday at Raymond United Methodist Church. Burial will be in Pine Ridge Cemetery in Lake. Details of his death were not released. A native of Lake, Thrash attended Hinds Community College and Louisiana State University, where he ultimately earned his doctorate. While at LSU, Thrash won the NCAA boxing championships in 1949 and 1950. He was inducted to the LSU Athletic Hall of Fame in 1950. In 1968, Thrash was named executive secretary of the state College Board. The position is presently called commissioner of higher education. It was during his tenure that the university system struggled with ongoing issues of desegregation. A lawsuit filed by the late Jake Ayers Sr. in 1975 challenged the inequities


of funding for the historic black colleges and led to a settlement three decades later that provided $503.2 million for the benefit of Jackson State, Alcorn State and Mississippi Valley, including new programs and infrastructure. After retiring in 1987, he continued working as a professor at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. Survivors include his wife, Jessie; a daughter and a son, six grandchildren and four great grandchildren.

Canton will not annex Nissan plant CANTON (AP) — The city of Canton’s efforts to annex the nearby Nissan manufacturing plant have failed. The Clarion-Ledger reports the city’s lawsuit seeking the right to annex the plant was dismissed Tuesday by U.S. District Court Judge

Carlton Reeves. City attorney Barbara Blackmon said the city will not appeal the decision. Canton officials had alleged the law that prohibited the city from annexing the plant for 30 years without the automaker’s written consent violates the equal protection clauses of the U.S. and state constitutions. That law protects the plant from annexation through 2030. “It may be that the city of Canton, as it is constituted in 2012, wishes that its predecessors had made a better deal, but that is not the question at hand,” Reeves said in the order of dismissal. “The question is whether the agreement is so onesided as to be illegally oppressive, and that question can be answered only in the negative.” Reeves ruled in Nissan’s favor after Nissan filed motions seeking that the suit be dis-

missed. A jury trial was scheduled for this summer. Reeves dismissed the suit with prejudice, meaning Canton will not be allowed to file another suit with the same claims. “The city was trying to determine what its rights were under the terms of the agreement,” Blackmon said. “And since the court answered the questions, the city is ready and prepared to move on.” H. Mitchell Cowan of Jackson, the attorney for Nissan, said he couldn’t comment “since it’s a matter that’s still technically in litigation.”

Snake blamed for power outage OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Officials say a snake slithered into an Oklahoma City electric substation and knocked out power to about 10,000 customers overnight.

Oklahoma Gas and Electric Co. says the power outage affected customers in northwest Oklahoma City at about 2 a.m. Thursday. A spokesman tells Oklahoma City televi-

sion station KWTV that workers found a snake in the transformer at the Lone Oak substation. OG&E says power was restored to all customers by 3 a.m.

US uses bin Laden letters to degrade WASHINGTON (AP) — Letters from Osama bin Laden’s last hideaway, released by U.S. officials intent on discrediting his terror organization, portray a network weak, inept and under siege — and its leader seemingly near wit’s end about the passing of his global jihad’s glory days. The documents, published online Thursday, are a small sample of those seized during the U.S. raid on bin Laden’s Pakistan compound in which he was killed a year ago. By no accident, they show al-Qaida at its worst. The raid has become the signature national security moment of Barack Obama’s presidency and one he is eager to emphasize in his re-election campaign. Those ends are served in the 17 documents chosen by U.S. officials for the world to see — not to mention American voters. The Obama administration has refused to release a fuller record of its bin Laden collection, making it difficult to glean any larger truths about the state of the terrorist organization. What is clear from the documents released so far is that al-Qaida’s leaders are constantly on the run from unmanned U.S. aircraft and trying to evade detection by CIA spies and National Security Agency eavesdroppers. In one letter, either bin Laden himself or his senior deputy tells the leader of Yemen’s al-Qaida offshoot that, in the face of U.S. power, it is futile to try to establish a government that will offer it safe haven. “Even though we were able to militarily and economically exhaust and weaken our greatest enemy before and after the eleventh,” the letter says, referring to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, “the enemy continues to possess the ability to topple any state we establish.” Again and again in the letters, bin Laden and his inner circle struggle to keep the focus of Islamic terrorism on killing Americans and tamp down attacks by al-Qaida affiliates on Muslim innocents. The documents describe the U.S. as “a malicious tree with a huge trunk,” and its allies as mere branches not worth al-Qaida’s time. From his redoubt in Pakistan, bin Laden was keenly aware that his organization’s standing with Muslim populations was crumbling. “I plan to release a statement that we are starting a new phase to correct (the mistakes) we made,” bin Laden wrote in 2010. “In doing so, we shall reclaim, God willing, the trust of a large seg-

ment of those who lost their trust in the jihadis.” Such passages offer a glimpse into the terrorist’s mindset. They also fit into the U.S. government’s public relations fight with al-Qaida. The U.S. has repeatedly sought to diminish the group’s standing in the Muslim world. Yet the administration has refused requests by The Associated Press to review U.S. government records — including helicopter maintenance logs and reports about the performance of military gear used in the raid — that could provide insights into how bin Laden died, how the U.S. verified his identity and how it decided to bury him at sea. Obama’s re-election campaign distributed a video questioning whether Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney would have ordered the raid on bin Laden’s compound. Romney snapped back that “of course” he would have. White House spokesman Jay Carney said the new documents came out after a long process of declassification and analysis, and the timing was driven in part by interest surrounding the anniversary of bin Laden’s death.

Medicare disruptions seen if health law nixed WASHINGTON (AP) — Medicare’s payment system, the unseen but vital network that handles 100 million monthly claims, could freeze up if President Barack Obama’s health care law is summarily overturned, the administration has quietly informed the courts. Although Obama’s overhaul made significant cuts to providers and improved prescription and preventive benefits, Medicare was overlooked in Supreme Court arguments that focused on the law’s controversial requirement that individuals carry health insurance. Yet havoc for Medicare could have repercussions as both parties avidly court seniors in this election year and as hospitals and doctors increasingly complain the program doesn’t pay enough. In papers filed with the Supreme Court, administration lawyers have warned of “extraordinary disruption” if Medicare is forced to unwind countless transactions that are based on payment changes required by more than 20 separate sections of the Affordable Care Act. Opponents say the whole law must go. The administration counters that even if it strikes down the insurance mandate, the court should preserve most of the rest of the legislation. That would leave in place its changes to Medicare as

well as a major expansion of Medicaid coverage. Last year, in a lower court filing on the case, Justice Department lawyers said reversing the Medicare payment changes “would impose staggering administrative burdens” on the government and “could cause major delays and errors” in claims payment. Former program administrators disagree on the potential for major disruptions, while some private industry executives predict an avalanche of litigation unless Congress intervenes. AARP says it’s concerned. If doctors became embroiled in a legal battle over payments, then “a general concern would be that physicians would cease to take on new Medicare patients, as well as potentially have issues seeing their current patients,” said Ariel Gonzalez, top health care lobbyist for the organization.

Facebook sets $28 to $35 price range NEW YORK (AP) — Facebook has set a price range of $28 to $35 for its initial public offering of stock. At the high end, this could raise as much as $11.8 billion. If the underwriters sell the extra stock reserved for overallotments, the IPO will value Facebook at $79.3 billion at the high end of the price range. That’s much higher than any other Internet IPO in the past, even Google Inc. in 2004, which raised $1.9 billion. The range came in a regulatory filing Thursday. After that, Facebook will go on an “IPO roadshow,” where executives talk to potential investors about why they should invest in the stock. If all goes well, Facebook’s stock is expected to price on May 17 and make its public debut on May 18. Facebook’s IPO has been highly anticipated, not just because of how much money it will raise but because Facebook itself is so popular. The world’s largest online social network has more than 900 million users worldwide. CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who turns 28 this month, has emerged as a wunderkind leader who’s led Facebook through unprecedented growth from its scrappy start as a hangout for Harvard students. Zuckerberg will keep tight control over the company even after the IPO. He will control about 58 percent of the company’s voting power, through stocks he owns or because other shareholders have promised to vote his way through shares that they own. This means he will have final say over the biggest decisions facing the company even after it goes public.

Prosecutors opt for hazing charges ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — There was no single blow, stomp or strike to Robert Champion’s bruised and battered body that killed him as he was pummeled by fellow Florida A&M University marching band members during a hazing ritual aboard a charter bus last fall. Instead, his death was caused by multiple blows from many individuals. That inability to pinpoint which blow ultimately caused the 26-year-old drum major’s death led authorities to charge 13 defendants Wednesday with hazing rather than more serious counts like manslaughter or seconddegree murder. “His death is not linked to one sole strike but it is attributed to multiple blows,” said State Attorney Lawson Lamar at a news conference announcing the charges.

Berkshire Hathawayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1Q

Duke Energyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1Q

Warren Buffettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Berkshire Hathaway is expected to show an improved proďŹ t today when it reports ďŹ rst-quarter results. In last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ rst quarter, the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s earnings were weighted down by major disaster losses at its insurance units. Berkshire also has since completed its $9 billion purchase of specialty chemical maker Lubrizol and several smaller acquisitions over the past year that should boost proďŹ ts.

Unusually warm winter weather this year reduced the heating needs of people and businesses. As a result, utilities across the country have reported lower revenue and earnings in the ďŹ rst three months of the year. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good bet Duke Energyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ rst-quarter results out today will reďŹ&#x201A;ect the same trend. Cost overruns at the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new coal plant in Indiana are also expected to factor in sharply lower results for the quarter.

Jobless rate report

Unemployment Rate

The U.S. economy created an average of 246,000 jobs per month from December through February. On Friday, the government is expected to report that employers added 163,000 jobs in April. That would be an improvement from March, when job growth slowed to just 120,000. Even so, economists expect that the nation's jobless rate didn't budge in April from the 8.2 percent rate recorded in March.

SEC has several MLB prospects The Associated Press

The Southeastern Conference is no stranger to producing talented players who can help almost immediately in Major League Baseball — especially on the mound. And another crop of talented players has emerged this season. More than a half-dozen players — including Florida catcher Mike Zunino, LSU

pitcher Kevin Gausman and Mississippi State pitcher Chris Stratton — are drawing plenty of attention from major league scouts as June’s amateur draft quickly approaches. LSU coach Paul Mainieri said the SEC’s ability to attract top talent, combined with the popularity of the sport in the south, make it a fertile area to find prospects who can help

professional teams quickly. “These are guys who play in high-pressure situations in front of big crowds on a weekly basis,” Mainieri said. “They deal with the media all the time. The expectations are huge. So once they get into professional baseball, there’s not much reason to stay in the minors if they’ve got the talent. These guys are ready.” Recent history proves

Mainieri’s point. Former Vanderbilt pitchers David Price (Tampa Bay Rays) and Mike Minor (Atlanta Braves) have quickly established themselves at the major league level. Former Mississippi pitcher Lance Lynn was an important piece of the St. Louis Cardinals’ bullpen during their run to Please see SEC | 9A

Medical examiner: Seau’s death a suicide The Associated Press

SAN DIEGO — Junior Seau’s death has been ruled a suicide by the San Diego County medical examiner’s office. An autopsy Thursday confirmed that the former NFL linebacker died of a gunshot wound to the chest, the medical examiner’s office said. The office said further details would be released in a final investigative report,

which may take up to 90 days to complete. Officials said they were awaiting a decision by the family on whether to turn over Seau’s brain to unidentified outside researchers for study. Seau died Wednesday in his home in suburban Oceanside. Police Chief Frank McCoy said Seau’s girlfriend reported finding him unconscious with a gunshot

wound to the chest and lifesaving efforts were unsuccessful. A gun was found near him, McCoy said. Police said no suicide note was found and they didn’t immediately know who the gun was registered to. Seau’s ex-wife, Gina, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that Seau sustained concussions during his 20-year career. She said she didn’t know if

the effects of concussions contributed to Seau’s death. Seau starred with his hometown San Diego Chargers for 13 years before playing with the Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots. Seau’s death follows the suicide last year of former Chicago Bears player Dave Duerson, who also shot Please see SEAU | 9A

who throw very hard. Gausmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top end velocity is especially impressive â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Mainieri said his fastball has topped out at 99 miles per hour this season. Gausman (7-1, 3.12 ERA) is one of the major reasons LSU has bounced back from a subpar season in 2011. He credited the Tigersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; new pitching coach Alan Dunn â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who worked for more than two decades in professional baseball â&#x20AC;&#x201D; with helping him become more of a complete pitcher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Something heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really helped me with is my secondary stuff,â&#x20AC;? Gausman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a very polished pitcher last season. I was just a thrower. But now weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working on some of my breaking pitches,

really trying to refine them.â&#x20AC;? Both Gausman and Stratton (8-0, 2.39 ERA) struggled a little last season while trying to harness their immense talent, but now theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re overpowering the competition. Gausman leads the SEC with 97 strikeouts while Stratton is right behind with 95. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just tried to be more aggressive out there,â&#x20AC;? Stratton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been able to pitch inside more and really establish what I want to do. And then my off-speed pitches have developed so I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just have to rely on the fastball.â&#x20AC;?

Gausman, Stratton, Georgiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Alex Wood, Floridaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brian Johnson and Arkansasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Nolan Sanburn are all pitchers who could go early in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s draft with the same potential.

with their talent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it started for Chris last summer when he was in the Cape Cod (summer league),â&#x20AC;? Cohen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He looked around and said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hey, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just as talented as anybody out here.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I know that sounds simple, but sometimes that realization can be really powerful for a guy. Chris is more aggressive now and really believes in his pitches.â&#x20AC;? Florida also has a pair of position players who could go high in the draft â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Zunino and shortstop Nolan Fontana. Zunino is one of the few collegiate players who has shown consistent power, even after last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new metal bats drastically cut power and scoring in college baseball.

McNairy County expects Visitorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Center to stay busy BY JEFF YORK For the Daily Corinthian

SELMER, Tenn. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The newly renovated Latta Building in downtown Selmer became the home of the McNairy Regional Alliance and Chamber of Commerce office on Monday. The facility will be known as the McNairy County Visitorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Center

and will also be the home of Arts in McNairy. A cooperative effort between McNairy County Government, Tennesseeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department of Transportation, Arts in McNairy, McNairy Regional Alliance, U.S. Rural Development, Southwest Tennessee Development District and the City of Selmer

Crossroads Bridal Edition

helped fund the building. The facility will be a busy place with the McNairy Regional Alliance and Chamber of Commerce serving the public during the week. A federal grant of $1,098,352 was first awarded to build the Jimmy Daniel Walking Trail, but that project was can-

celed prior to using the grant. McNairy County had to provide 20 percent matching funds and contributed $274,588 to pay for the building. The total cost of the project is $1,372,942. While some in the county expressed dissatisfaction with spending that amount on this building, McNairy County Mayor Wilburn Gene Ashe be-

lieves it is a positive step for the county. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This visitorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s center is a good investment for our county,â&#x20AC;? said Ashe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will bring people into our county for AiM programs and other events.â&#x20AC;? Earl Latta owned the building when it was a Ford dealership for many years. Arts in McNairy will host their community theatre group, local artist

showings, Artisan Trail and performing arts series in the new facility. AiM recently celebrated their 10th anniversary and has built a solid arts program in the county. The first event in the new building will be the Chic-fil-A Leadercast on Friday, May 4. The leadership conference will feature John Maxwell and Tim Tebow. For information, call 731-645-6360.

Remembering the promise He gives us Lately I’ve been absolutely overwhelmed by some of the stressful situations a number of our friends and neighbors are experiencing — some concerning health issues, some accidents, others in job situations and just life in general. Mulling particular things over in my mind, I acted on an urge to call a friend who was especially encouraging when my husband went through cancer surgery and treatments 10 years ago. Four years ago, this brave lady walked through a similarly dark valley -- hers was late-stage bone cancer. I called Rose Ann Barnes to see how she is doing, not having heard a report from her in a long time. I’m here to say that when I hung up the phone, I felt energized and optimistic about almost everything I had been concerned with prior to the phone call. This lady may have had a terrible bout with the evil disease we all fear, but she is in remission and she wants the world to know how great and merciful her God is! Rose Ann’s voice and her enthusiasm is contagious, to say the least. I told my husband if any-

one needs a word of encouragement, she’s the one who can give it. Lora Ann I am reHuff m i n d e d of an exBack Porch perience we had recently when we visited Biggersville First Baptist Church, and a lady who was preparing for major surgery to remove a malignancy stood to sing a solo. “This is a special moment,” I thought to myself as she walked to the pulpit. Then the music began playing the introduction to “The Promise.” My heart beat fast as the first words came from the lady’s mouth: “I never said that I would give you silver or gold, or that you would never feel the fire or shiver in the cold, but I did say you’d never walk through this world alone; and I did say, don’t make this world your home. “I never said that fear wouldn’t find you in the night, or that loneliness was something you’d never have to fight, but I did say I’d be right there by

your side, and I did say I’ll always help you fight. “’Cause you know I made a promise that I intend to keep, my grace will be sufficient in every time of need, and my love will be the anchor that you can hold on to -- this is the promise, this is the promise I made to you.” Other reassuring verses followed, the lady’s voice growing stronger with each one, and when she finished the song, the congregation almost had a come-apart party. They stood up, they raised their hands, they clapped their hands. They openly praised God because they know the words of the song are so true. Many of the members have already experienced this promise in their own lives and were inspired to see this fellow Christian practicing her faith in such a trying situation. It was easy to tell these folks love each other, and together they lean on the everlasting arms of God. They know none of us can walk through this world with any kind of peace without faith in a heavenly Father who has proved over and over that He is willing and able to do more than we

can ever ask or think. He is the only source of real strength, and the sooner we admit that we are helpless without Him, the better off we are! … So when life throws the curve balls we didn’t really expect and we can’t seem to lift our heads up above the darkened clouds, remember there is Someone who has the answers, there is Someone more knowledgeable than the doctors, there is a Healer who can restore. … And, yes, perhaps He may choose to do it differently than we desire, but we can be sure He will not leave us. He will keep His promise as is stated in the last verse of the abovementioned song: “… So just keep on walkin’, don’t turn to the left or right, and in the midst of darkness, let this be your light -- that hell can’t separate us and you’re gonna make it through -- This is the promise, this is the promise I made to you!” (Lora Ann Huff is a Wenasoga resident and special columnist for the Daily Corinthian.

Bird man excluded from festival tries not to squawk DEAR ABBY: I am a professional ornithologist (bird expert) with a substantial record of accomplishments — books, scientific papers, blog, website, consultant work, etc. My hometown has held a bird festival for more than a decade and each year it features a main speaker at the dinner. My expertise and experience far outshine that of any of the speakers they have invited by a considerable margin. I am well-known in town, but have not been asked to speak. I talked to the festival board members, and they say I haven’t been deliberately excluded, but they didn’t give me any reason why I have been ignored. There’s no history of bad

feelings, but I’m starting to develop some now. It feels like a personal Abigail and proVan Buren fessional s n u b . Dear Abby How do I respond? — UNAPPRECIATED IN CALIFORNIA DEAR UNAPPRECIATED: You’re not alone with this dilemma. To paraphrase a verse from the Bible (which also sounds like Rodney Dangerfield), “A prophet is without honor in his own hometown.” Because the festival board members have been made aware that you are

qualified and would like to be a speaker, it’s time to step back. Make other plans for when the festival is held. It’s possible your absence may make their hearts grow fonder. However, if it doesn’t, at least you won’t be sitting at home and brooding. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist.) DEAR ABBY: When my husband and I have a private argument, he shares our problems with our 11-year-old daughter when I am not around. Later, she will tell me she sides with him about our argument. I feel my husband should not involve our daughter in our disagreements. It makes me feel betrayed. How should I deal with this issue?

— VIOLATED IN NEW JERSEY DEAR VIOLATED: You married a man who appears to be manipulative and not above using your daughter to “get to you.” I agree he shouldn’t discuss your disagreements with her — not because it’s a betrayal, but because it’s unfair that she is being put in the middle. Because there are problems the two of you can’t resolve, they should be talked out with a licensed marriage counselor, not a child. If your husband refuses to go, you definitely should go without him. DEAR ABBY: We love our son-in-law, “Chip,” but not his family. Family get-togethers are very strained because they

drink — a lot. Chip’s brother has given beer to his 3-yearold and no one says anything. I find it appalling and a form of child abuse. Chip’s brother is sarcastic and rude. I am worried about my grandson spending any time with them. My daughter has also made her concerns known to Chip, but nothing changes. Should I stay out of this? — TEETOTALING GRANDMA DEAR GRANDMA: Much as you might wish to, neither you nor your daughter is going to change the behavior of a belligerent drunk, which Chip’s brother appears to be. Because alcohol impairs his judgment to the extent that he’s giving li-

quor to his 3-year-old and the child’s mother allows it, someone should contact child protective services and ask what can be done. I recommend that you do it soon, because giving alcohol to a minor is not only against the law, but could make the child sick or create a dependency. As to your grandson, the boy should never be around his aunt and uncle unless there is strict supervision.

Students place high in art competition Special to the Daily Corinthian

‘Sisters Helping Sisters’ with founder, Shana Green.

Hardworking women become productive citizens Special to the Daily Corinthian

“Sisters Helping Sisters,” created by Shana Green, Corinth Middle School counselor, has really thrived in Corinth and at Corinth Middle School. The group of about 30-plus girls have been working hard in the community by volunteering at their school’s cafeteria by cleaning

and putting up trays and spending time with the elderly at Whitfield Nursing Home. The girls also volunteered at the Corinth-Alcorn Animal Shelter during their Spring Break week. Green, a native of Hazlehurst and Alcorn State University graduate, and the girls have programs where

they meet and talk about issues concerning youth such as teen violence, teen pregnancy, self-esteem, and career/ college choices. “Sisters Helping Sisters” mission is to teach young women to love their fellow sister as well as help them to become productive citizens in society, academically and socially.

Horoscopes BY HOLIDAY MATHIS Politics are not only for election ballots. We “vote” for one another with our words, body language and actions every day. The Libra Moon dominates the day, and diplomacy will be key. Luckily, it is not very hard to come by, as most people are naturally inclined to at least wonder what others need. ARIES (March 21-April 19). You work within a structure of intelligent individuals. It’s not mandatory to know what everyone does, but it might be nice to find out what’s going on outside of your area of expertise. Ask around. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It would be too easy to settle for being uninformed — people around you are doing it. You prefer to do your research. You’ll look before you leap so that you know what you’re getting into. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Meetings are on the agenda. If you expect to learn all you need to know at the meeting, you’ll only be disappointed. This is a chance to see and be seen. Get ready to do a bit of show and tell. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are the pilot of your own ship. Your vessel will be affected by the wind and currents today, but you’re still ultimately the one in charge, hands expertly gripping the wheel. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Love is not an intellec-

tual exercise. You may feel that you should give your love to someone (or perhaps to yourself), and yet you can’t force the issue because it just doesn’t work that way. Relax into love. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Once you get the creeping suspicion that you’re not going to get what you need or want from a situation, it’s best to move on. The lesson will occur to you long after you have left the scene. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Subconscious desires and core needs will be the emphasis, neither of which can be addressed through logic. So resist trying to reason about unreasonable things, and lead with your feelings. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). What you see in others also exists in a part of you — otherwise you wouldn’t recognize it. Knowing this, you’ll use your observations of others to unearth hidden feelings and air them out. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The world may be more or less the same as it was yesterday, and yet you see yourself differently in relation to it. It will be so natural and easy to work with all that you have that you’ll wonder why you were making it so hard. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). In a dance, neither person causes the other person to dance.

There is a natural reaction and response -- you move here, I’ll move there. You’ll be in a kind of dance today, swaying to the impulse of the moment. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18). You’re not as lost as you think you are. In fact, you have arrived at a destination you hoped for. Take full advantage of your surroundings. You’ll find your way when you are no longer looking for it. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Believing, thinking and deciding are futile mental exercises. There are only two categories that matter: You either do or you don’t do. The only way to make things happen is to act. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (MAY 4). You’ll live life on your own terms. Next month, new friends bring you the job you wanted most. In August, pitch in to help partners and you’re the one who will ultimately be rewarded. September features an adventure vacation - passions will be ignited in on far-off adventures. Revamp and remodel in November. Capricorn and Pisces adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 13, 11, 48 and 23. WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: Your disarming smile doesn’t win hearts so much as steal them. TAURUS: You’ll act on behalf of a group. Your sense of purpose and willingness to assume the leadership role will be of inter-

est to a certain amorous someone. GEMINI: You’d be surprised at who has a crush on you. CANCER: Your physical fitness efforts keep you young and exciting. Everyone will notice your progress. LEO: The thing that makes you feel better will also bond you with a like-minded individual when you share about your healing. VIRGO: You’ll go back to holding hands and sharing long amorous glances as your love renews itself. LIBRA: What you want out of a relationship is different from what the other person wants, and yet you can still work things out — discussion is in order. SCORPIO: What was lost will be regained with little effort. SAGITTARIUS: The end of one story is the opening chapter of an epic love adventure. CAPRICORN: Your originality will raise you in the mind and heart of another. AQUARIUS: You don’t have to explain yourself to the one who loves you so well. PISCES: You know what you want and how to get it, and your way will work just fine. COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Libra and Taurus are both Venus ruled signs who appreciate the finer things in life, although they don’t always agree on what those things might be.
