Daily Corinthian Vol. 116, No. 141
BY JEBB JOHNSTON A line of severe thunderstorms with high winds downed trees and caused some minor property damage in Corinth and Alcorn County on Monday. The storm system greeted the area with dark clouds and wind gusts about 5 p.m. The largest tree blown down in the city blocked traffic on East Shiloh Road. It fell from the lawn of the Daniel residence across a roadside fence, with the top of the tree coming to rest in Shiloh Road.

Street Commissioner Jim Bynum said the tree hit a vehicle that was passing at the time, but there was apparently no major damage to the vehicle or injuries to the occupants. The residence is also home to the popular “Shiloh Road gorilla” lawn ornament, which Bynum said appeared to have been hit by the falling tree. “I don’t know how bad he’s hurt, but we believe he was pretty well hurt,” said Bynum. A large limb fell at Cruise and Proper, and the street

The Corinth School District Board of Trustees on Monday adopted an abstinence-only sex education policy but agreed to revisit the issue after it has been in place for a semester. School districts are required to adopt an abstinence-only or abstinence-plus policy by the end of June. The policy will go into practice with the 20122013 school year. The board reached its decision after much discussion in

which concern was expressed about youth becoming sexually active at younger ages. “I would like to take the position of abstinence-only, but I think that’s like wearing blinders,” said Board President Ann Walker. Superintendent Lee Childress said the differences between the two options are subtle. Abstinence-plus promotes abstinence while including information about how to use contraception but without demonstrating how to use it.
Abstinence-only does not altogether prohibit an instructor from talking about contraceptives, however. Board member Jerry Finger said he sees the need for sex education and is hearing it from others, as well. Childress agreed that the community faces an increasing problem. “Teen pregnancy has been a problem throughout this country for many years,” he said. “It Please see POLICY | 2

Congressman tours industry BY JEBB JOHNSTON firstname.lastname@example.org
Rep. Alan Nunnelee (R) visited a Corinth restaurant and industry while spending time in his home district Monday morning. At Corinthian, Inc., the congressman toured the Henson Road facility and learned about
the furniture manufacturing operations. “The economy is a little slow, especially in the furniture industry, but we’re hanging in there,” said Operations Manager Mark Coombs. Nunnelee, who represents Northeast Mississippi in the U.S. Congress, said the private
sector continues to struggle in the economic recession. “The good news is that the folks at Corinthian are operating, working and providing jobs,” he said. “But there is a cloud of uncertainty that is hanging over the economy. Please see NUNNELEE | 3
When Paynter finished second place in Saturday’s Belmont Stakes horse-race, Alcorn County resident Alan Porter had a reason to celebrate. The 55-year-old native of England consulted the mating for Paynter — along with many other top-tier racehorses over the years. Porter is a pedigree consultant, and as co-owner of three companies that promise their clients the best advice when it comes to breeding fast horses, the near-victory was an affirmation of the soundness of his advice. “I was delighted to see Paynter run so well in the Belmont Stakes, the third leg of the Triple Crown, and the race they call the Test of the Champion,” said Porter. “For a relatively inexperienced horse, making his first start in a major race, he performed remarkably well, very nearly leading from tape to wire, and just getting caught in a photo-finish by Union Rags, the
winter favorite for the Triple Crown.” Porter is a five-year resident of western Alcorn County, near the Hightown community. He moved to Alcorn following 13 years of living in New York. He has been professionally involved with thoroughbreds for almost 40 years, has been a writer on racing and breeding for more than 35 years and has been planning matings for 25 years. After several years working on a stallion farm in his native England, Porter turned to journalism, joining “Stud & Stable” magazine, which eventually became “Pacemaker,” where he worked as deputy editor. Over the years he has contributed to many racing publications around the world and has authored three books on racing, including “Patterns of Greatness” and “Patterns of Greatness II - The Americans” with Anne Peters.

Coffeehouse continues cultural offerings Corinth’s cultural offerings will be on display this month in a series of upcoming events at KC’s Espresso.
She also emphasized that the event is open to everyone, not just the musically inclined. “You don’t have to be a musician or a singer to come,” she said. “Just come hang out.”
The coffeehouse will stage its monthly Open Mic Night on Saturday, beginning at 6:30 p.m. On Open Mic Night the KC’s staff shut the doors facing Fillmore Street to make room for the PA system and local, mostly young, performers take turns playing sets of their choice material. Customers and performers enter through the side door facing Waldron Street. Performers at the events are talented musicians who represent all walks of life and all genres of music, owner Melinda Billingsley said. Usually around 10 performers divide the night’s stage time, each playing 15- to 20-minute sets. The owner said she hopes the monthly event will offer a safe alternative for the area’s young people, where they can come together and enjoy music and friendship in an environment free from drugs and alcohol. And it’s not just for the kids, she emphasized. “It’s for kids and adults — but mostly it’s the kids that take advantage,” Billingsley said.
On Tuesday, June 26, West Tennessee author Jeanne Crews Taylor will sign copies of her third novel, “The Final Stretch.” It is the story of two siblings who were separated at early ages who reconnect over a shared childhood in an Oklahoma trailer park. “This story is filled with conflict and emotion, and will tug at your heart,” said the author. “I like to give my readers a little bit of it all — adventure, romance and heartache.” Taylor will sign copies of her new book from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Homemakers host cultural arts fair Special to the Daily Corinthian
Alcorn County Mississippi Homemaker Volunteers’ Club, “The Lunch Bunch” hosted the Annual Cultural Arts Fair during the final days of the Mississippi State Homemaker Volunteer Week in April. “The Lunch Bunch” not only does numerous volunteer hours which is their major goal, but also participates in the learning of new arts and crafts techniques. The ladies then are able to share these cultural arts activities with different groups in the community. On April 25, the countywide Alcorn County Homemaker Volunteer brought remarkable handmade arts and crafts to the Alcorn County Extension Building to enter into competition (approximately 112 different categories). There were fourteen participants in this year’s competition. These participants entered many different categories and their entries were judged by an outof-state volunteer. There were several different types of items pictured in this article: portrait drawing, photography, oil painting, quilted pil-
low, hooked rug…just to show a few. This year the MHV Council decided not to enter their Cultural Arts items in the MS State Competition, but in the past Alcorn County has brought home many Best of Show state winners in many categories. This year’s motto for the Mississippi State MHV is “Embrace the Future”, as you have read these ladies (approximately 60 that are in four clubs) are always working to help others, learning methods of improving life while aging, helping teach others important values learned from experience, and sharing their talents of arts and crafts with others in the clubs and the community. Town and County, Hinkle, Cross City Piece Makers, and the Lunch Bunch are the organized clubs that are participating in many activities that are planned for this year. There are also Mailbox members that receive information about the homemakers’ activities. The following are some of the topics that are remaining learning events for 2012: June 20, 2012 a trip to Huntsville
Botanical Gardens; June 27, 2012 Dairy Luncheon to help celebrate Dairy Month; Stop Junk Mail and Unwanted Phone Calls; International Study; Estate Planning; Being a Family Historian; Food Safety Guidelines; Cooking for One or Two; and the Annual Holiday Fair November 18, 2012 (Bake Sale, Arts, Crafts, and Plant Sale) at Martha’s Menu Dining Room beginning at 8:30 a.m. The clubs also are making cough pillows, baby blankets, tote bags, diaper shirts, and wheel chair totes for the MS State Children’s Hospital this year, participating in a recycling effort, donating to local, state, and national organizations and working in activities in their local communities. The participation in these activities is an important part of being a member of the Alcorn County Homemaker Volunteers. The Homemakers are a part of a global community, but within this community they provide education and service within our individual families and communities.

sultancy businesses are www.pedigreeconsultants.com, www.performancegenetics.com and www.truenicks.com. TrueNicks is the leading website for planning and rating breedings, with over 700 stallions in North America, Central America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Turkey, the Philippines and elsewhere. The best horse his company has planned the mating for is Goldikova, who won the Breeders’ Cup Mile three successive time — the only horse to wind the same Breeders’ Cup race three times.
She was European Horse of the Year in 2010 and Champion Turf Mare in the U.S. in 2009 and 2010. With 14 wins, Goldikova owns the European record for most victories in grade one races (the highest level). Aside from his thoroughbred activities, Porter is a competitive runner. He won the area Masters 1500m Indoor Championship in 2001; and the Metropolitan Athlete Congress Masters Mile Indoor Championship in 2002. He placed third in the U.S. National Masters Championships in the 3k Steeplechase in 2003 and 2006. Porter also won grandmasters
(age 50-plus) at Gum Tree 10k four times, set the Mississippi 10k record for 50 and up, and won several local races outright at 50-plus. His recent high placing with Paynter gives Porter reason for high hopes for the season. “We expect to see great things from Paynter later in the season, and he has a real chance to end the year as the best of his crop,” said Porter. “It was a big week for us in classic races, as the previous week another horse that we had planned the mating for, Nutello, was third, beaten by less than a length in the French Derby.”
children, and whether we agree with what type of policy or standard it is, we’ve got to do something to stop teenage pregnancy because it’s rapidly becoming a greater issue for us to deal with.” The policy affecting grades 5 through 12 requires parents to opt in for their child’s participation. In the past, parents had to opt out. Males and females will be separated for the instruction. The board considered adopting abstinence-only for grades 5 through
8 and abstinence-plus for grades 9 through 12. Board member Missy Woodhouse expressed concern that participation might be diminished if the abstinence-plus policy is adopted. The board agreed to take a look at participation in the abstinenceonly version after the first semester and consider if changes are needed. The majority of districts across the state are opting for abstinence-only policies, the superintendent said.
Alcorn Emergency Management Director Ricky Gibens said the county had some mild road flooding, some trees down and a culvert washed out on County Road 409. “No major damage has
been reported to us,” he said. Gibens said the maximum sustained winds were 70 to 73 mph. Corinthweather.net reported 0.54 inches of rain as of 7:30 p.m.

People don’t have extra money to go out and spend on furniture and it shows up in jobs in Alcorn County.” In the nation’s capitol, Nunnelee and the rest of Congress have been focused on the appropriations process. “We’ve passed about half of the appropriation bills, and we’re committed to continuing to cut spending, because that’s one of the things we have to do to turn the economy around,” he said. “Right now, we are still borrowing about 40 cents out of every dollar we spend. There’s not a family in north Mississippi that could live on borrowing 40 cents out of a dollar. There’s not a business in north Mississippi that could live borrowing 40
this year.” The bill was introduced by the governor and was one of three tax cuts passed by the legislature and signed by Haslam this year as the state continues its work toward providing the best customer service at the lowest possible cost to taxpayers. Haslam included $21.3 million in the FY 2012-2013 state budget to fund the legislation. The reduced tax rate does not apply to prepared foods such as a meal at a restaurant, candy, alcoholic beverages or tobacco.
cents out of a dollar.” Nunnelee said he continues to be disappointed in the administration’s response to the Keystone Pipeline issue and believes gas prices, while currently falling, are still a major concern of constituents. The congressman said he believes the economy can rebound “if we can find a way to continue to reign in federal spending, if we can deal with the energy issue and if we can take care of this cloud of regulations that’s hanging over the American economy.” Nunnelee is on the ballot in November seeking a second twoyear term against Oxford Democrat Brad Morris and several third-party candidates. The congressman from Tupelo is a former long term state senator.
