City releases Future Fare plan details BY JEBB JOHNSTON

The City of Corinth is making plans for Future Fare. Elected officials are beginning to talk about specific numbers and ramping up the public relations effort. A public presentation is planned for late July, when

more specifics will be revealed ahead of the Aug. 21 vote on a 12 mill ad valorem tax increase for Corinth residents. “It’s an open book,” said Mayor Tommy Irwin. “There’s no secrets. We’ll identify where the paving is going to be. Will it be enough to take care of everyone? Absolutely not. However,

you’re going to be surprised what three-and-a-half million dollars of paving will do in the City of Corinth.” The city is seeking endorsements of Future Fare from civic groups and others. On Monday evening, Irwin asked the Corinth School District Board of Trustees to consider an en-

dorsement of the proposed fiveyear thoroughfare and infrastructure program. The majority of the money — $3.636 million — is set to go to street paving and milling. Other plans for the money include: ■ Commercial and residential property cleanup — $300,000

■ Strategic master plan for years 5 to 15 — $100,000 ■ Drainage — $100,000 ■ Sidewalks and handicap accessibility — $200,000 ■ Signage — $250,000 ■ Aesthetics and corridors —$200,000

Mr. Smith — the holiday-spirited Shiloh Road gorilla — was killed during the storm Monday night.

Storm system kills popular Shiloh Road gorilla BY BOBBY J. SMITH

A beloved Corinth resident was killed in the storm Monday evening. Mr. Smith, the Shiloh Road gorilla, was decapitated when

a large oak tree fell on him shortly before 5 p.m. Monday. “I was out in the yard trying to move some stuff. The wind came up, the tree snapped and the gorilla was right in the line of fire,” said James Daniel,

who’d kept Mr. Smith as a pet for over five years. “The trunk went right across the middle of his back.” Corinth Street Commissioner Jim Bynum was on the scene shortly after Mr. Smith

was killed. He was one of the first to view Mr. Smith’s remains. “He usually stood up there with his arms on the fence,” Please see GORILLA | 3A

A 13-year-old died in a onevehicle wreck in Prentiss County Monday, said Sheriff Randy Tolar. Anna Rogers of Blue Springs was a passenger in a vehicle which was traveling south on CR 5111 near the intersection of CR 5226 when the accident occurred just before a severe storm hit the Prentiss County area Monday, he said. “It appears the driver lost control of the vehicle and struck a utility pole. The vehicle overturned and ejected Rogers, who was pinned under the vehicle. She was pronounced dead at the scene,” Tolar said. Three others in the vehicle were transported by ambulance, with two being taken to the Booneville hospital and the more seriously injured was transported to Tupelo by ambulance. A condition report was unavailable on the three Tuesday afternoon. Their names were not released. All were females around the same age, he said. Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Holland Funeral Directors in Tupelo.

Green Market begins reusing food container share program BY BOBBY J. SMITH

Recycling is good — but reusing is even better. Green Market organizers have announced a new program to encourage the community to start thinking about reusable items, especially in the kitchen. “To help reuse containers, we will have a Container Swap at the July 7 Green Market,” announced Program Director Karen Beth Martin. For the program, Green Market-goers can bring their empty food containers and put them on a designated table. People who see containers that they can use may take as many as they want. “All we ask is that the containers have lids and are reasonably cleaned out. You don’t even have to remove the labels,” explained Martin. Martin emphasized that the program is not for vintage dishware or Tupperware — only containers like a mayonnaise jar that would otherwise be thrown away. The program director said she got the idea for the pro-

gram while reading an article about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, the world’s largest landfill, a floating mass of plastic and garbage said to cover a space one and a half times the size of the USA. “The plastic never goes away, at least not in a lifetime,” said Martin. The Container Swap is one way to reduce the amount of plastic cluttering landfills and waterways. A wide range of handy items can be made from old food containers, Martin explained, and there are many ways to turn an old plastic package into a work of art. “A lot of people see ugly jars, but you can fix them up really cute,” she said. Karen Beth’s ideas for reusing/decorating food containers: ■ Decoupage with lace doilies or scarves ■ Paint with chalkboard paint so you can write what is in them ■ Or buy chalkboard labels (available online) ■ Use for flower vases ■ Tie up with burlap or pretty

ribbon ■ Make into outdoor lamps ■ Wine bottle for kerosene lamps ■ Use for storage for Legos, Q-tips, cotton balls, any sort of kitchen item, homemade laundry detergent, buttons, craft supplies, or anything you can think of ■ Use plastic bottles to selfwater plants ■ Pop plants in jars, jugs, coffee tins ■ Use for candle holders ■ Store leftovers in jars (be sure to use lids) ■ Have your kids decorate old containers with food-safe paint ■ Cake-in-a-jar ■ Spices, bulk grains, beans, dry goods ■ Store bathroom items (“I make my own shampoo and moisturizer and love storing them in mayonnaise containers”) ■ Make hanging lanterns out of vinegar jars ■ Memory jars ■ Snowglobes ■ Cover the lids in fabric ■ Change jar For more information, contact Karen Beth Martin, 287-8300.

Next month the Green Market will feature a Container Swap to encourage people to reuse food containers in a creative way, like these repurposed containers.

On this day in history 150 years ago Halleck directs a reluctant Gen. Grant to complete the earthworks around Corinth. “They were laid out on a scale that would have required 100,000 men to fully man them. It was probably thought that a final battle of the war would be fought at that point.”

Industry receives grant funds BY JEFF YORK For the Daily Corinthian

Gov. Bill Haslam and Tennessee Department of Labor & Workforce Development Commissioner Karla Davis have awarded $25,000 to Monogram Refrigeration, LLC in Selmer. “If Tennessee is going to become the number one location in the Southeast for high-quality jobs, then we must offer a well-trained workforce to employers,” said Gov. Haslam. “This kind of training grant not only helps educate workers, but also provides incentive to employers looking to relocate or expand in Tennessee.” “Both job creation and retention are vital in maintaining a healthy economy in Tennessee, and the Incumbent Worker Training program has played a key role

in accomplishing this,” said Commissioner Davis. “Since the program’s inception, Incumbent Worker Training grants have assisted more than 600 businesses by providing $14 million to train approximately 50,000 employees.” In its application for the grant, Monogram Refrigeration, LLC stated this grant will contribute to improving company processes by upgrading employee skills and enabling the company to continue moving up the value chain allowing job retention and creation. “I would like to thank Gov. Haslam and Commissioner Davis for their involvement in awarding this grant to the workers of McNairy County,” said Senator Dolores Gresham. “By investing in the skills of Tennessee’s

workforce, we’re also investing in our future economic success,” said Representative Vance Dennis. The Southwest Tennessee Human Resource Agency played a key role in awarding the grant to Monogram Refrigeration, LLC. The Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development administers the Incumbent Worker Training program. The program has been structured to be flexible to meet the business’s training objectives. The business may use public, private, or its own in-house training provider based on the nature of the training. Funding priority is given to businesses whose grant proposals represent a significant layoff avoidance strategy and represent a significant upgrade of skills.

five wards, although the ward 2 number is greater because it includes two major thoroughfares, Shiloh Road and Harper Road. The plan includes paving Harper from Shiloh north to Mississippi Highway 2. The downtown paving includes areas in ward 1. With property cleanup and a focus on aesthetics and corridors, the city will address “some of these areas that have been kind of a drag on our community,” the mayor said.

The special tax levy would begin with the fiscal year that starts Oct. 1. Irwin said the city is not copying Tupelo but requesting citizen approval to do what is necessary. “I knew when I ran for office at some point in time, with the information I had, that we would have to find a way to rebuild our community,” he said. “We’ve got to work on Corinth. There is not a grant, state or federal, that will fix our community. I wish there were.”

FUTURE CONTINUED FROM 1A ■ Contingency — $214,000 Paving is broken down amongst the five wards with an additional allotment for downtown. The figures include: ■ Ward 1 — $294,750 ■ Ward 2 — $1,759,250 ■ Ward 3 — $230,250 ■ Ward 4 — $353,500 ■ Ward 5 — $400,250 ■ Downtown — $598,000 Irwin said it is designed to be equitable among the

Bynum said. “When I got up there — that son of a gun — all I could see was his old chin hanging on the fence.” Before the news spread of Mr. Smith’s demise, civic leaders and members of the community held on to hopes for his eventual recovery. “I don’t know if he’s out of commission. I hope not,” said Mayor Tommy Irwin. “We like to look at him over the fence.” But the truth soon became evident. Mr. Smith was a goner. On Tuesday the street Mr. Smith called home was thronged with sightseers. The bereaved and the merely curious drove by all day to see where the gorilla met his sad end. One of Mr. Smith’s neighbors said people were stopping in the street to get a look at the gorilla’s mangled remains. It was still a grisly scene on Tuesday. Amid the still-green leaves of the tree that felled him, Mr. Smith stood headless, his wide-brimmed straw hat lying on the ground next to his mighty body. His colorful Hawaiian shirt was in tatters. A bunch of bananas — his favorite food — still hung around what was left of his neck.

February. Finally his owner received a phone call informing him where the Mr. Smith could be found. Daniel found his gorilla deep in the woods behind an apartment complex on Proper Street in the eastern part of the city. Corinth police believed several people, possibly juveniles, were involved in the gorilla heist. Mr. Smith was estimated to weigh a few hundred pounds and was not easily moved. Since the incident, Mr. Smith was put on a chain in the Daniel family’s yard to deter any more disappearances. Daniel said the family has received an outpouring of support since Mr. Smith was laid low by the tree Monday night. “Obviously more people liked him than I knew,” he said. “We got a lot of calls and a lot of people on Facebook, all day long, wondering about the gorilla.” In the aftermath of Mr. Smith’s tragic death, his owner is already making plans to ensure the gorilla of Shiloh Road does not fade into the past forever. “I think we’re going to have to find his twin brother,” Daniel said. “I hope we can find him somewhere, and I’m going to start looking at all the zoos.”

Mr. Smith’s severed head rested on the oak leaves. His eyes, still open through the night’s carnage, gazed to the south across Shiloh Road. “Bless his heart,” said Bynum. “He’s been around the world.” While Mr. Smith was a quiet, peaceful Shiloh Road resident, his life was anything but uneventful. Originally hailing from Marshall County — as close as could be determined — Mr. Smith was long a favorite of the community. He loved nothing more than peeking over the fence from his yard and dressing up for the holidays and to mark the change of seasons. Then tragedy struck. To celebrate Christmas of 2009, Mr. Smith was dressed up as Rudolph the red-nosed gorilla. In early January he was snatched up by kidnappers and held in an undisclosed location. Appeals went out from the community begging for Mr. Smith’s release. His owners offered a reward. A special Facebook page called “Bring Back the Shiloh Road Gorilla” was created where people testified to their love of the holiday-spirited gorilla and asked for his safe return. Almost 500 people joined the page. January turned to

Corinth, Miss.

Obama’s left flank looks precarious BY DICK MORRIS AND EILEEN MCGANN While Republican attacks on Obama over the economy are multiplying, the president’s real troubles may be the other end of the spectrum among his natural supporters on the left. There, dissatisfaction, disillusionment, and concerns about whether he is up to the job dog him. Obama’s poor showing in West Virginia, Kentucky, and Arkansas offers quantitative evidence of Democratic discontent with the president, and focus groups and polling offer qualitative evidence. Polls of registered voters show an Obama lead of up to four points, while those of likely voters show an equivalent lead for Romney. Obama cannot get his people to the polls. He can’t make registered voters who support him into likely voters. The Democratic discontent with Obama is taking its toll on the turnout of his base. The biggest disappointment with Obama is his failure to achieve anything with the Republican Congress. The president’s advisors assume you can either blame the Democrats or the Republicans for the failure of Washington to achieve anything. But the fact is that you can also blame all incumbents, particularly the one in the White House. Democrats are impatient with Obama’s failure to get anything done and intolerant of his inability to force Republicans to pass his legislation. While one side of this double-edged sword blames the GOP for ideological intransigence, the other sees in Obama a politician not able to produce and not up to the job. With books recounting how uninvolved Obama is in the legislative process (quite the contrary of the image of LBJ we see in the Caro biography), the negative view of the president among his normal supporters only grows worse. To liberals already antagonized by the fact that Gitmo is still open, that it took so long to pull out of Iraq, that we are still in Afghanistan, and that Obama may have been so incompetent in drafting his health care law that it is unconstitutional, the president’s failures with Congress may become the last straw. Now we face a summer of new confrontation in Washington and, likely, new gridlock -- because, inexplicably, Obama raised the debt limit too little to put raising it off until into 2013, and he now has to go about raising it again. Democratic demands for a “clean” debt limit increase devoid of spending cuts have failed to stir any interest among House Republicans. So it’s back to the old debate. Republicans will press for spending cuts. Democrats will only accept smaller cuts and only if they are also accompanied by tax increases on the wealthy. Republicans won’t buy any tax increase, so more gridlock will eventuate. In addition, GOP concerns about the impact of the defense sequester cuts and their efforts to reduce military spending cuts are also likely to add to the partisan divisions and gridlock. This situation is a win-win for the Republicans. If gridlock develops, the president will be the main casualty. The sense that he is, on the one hand, too weak and on the other hand, too partisan and negative, will grow and alienate liberal and Democratic voters, further depressing their turnout. House Republicans, as a group, will suffer too. But they don’t run as a group. They run as individuals and can skirt the blame for inaction in Washington as they campaign. But, for Obama, more gridlock will only deepen the sense that he is not up to the job of leading America. And, if Obama compromises -- that is to say, surrenders -- to GOP demands for cuts, the resulting image of weakness, centrism, and lack of conviction will hurt him just as surely as his approval of the Bush tax cuts hurt him with his base in the lame duck session of 2010. Either way, the events of the summer do not bode well for the president. (Dick Morris, former advisor to the Clinton administration, is a commentator and author of “Rewriting History.” He is also a columnist for the New York Post and The Hill. His wife, Eileen McGann is an attorney and consultant.)

Prayer for today God of all the world, thank you for your loving care that always surrounds us, even when we are not aware of it. Help us to trust you now in this life and for the life that awaits us. Amen.

Cochran’s pivotal role in U.S. farm policy STARKVILLE — Members of Congress from the Midwest and members from the South are fighting over whether this nation’s farm policy will favor crops grown primarily in the South over crops that are more prevalent in the Midwest. At stake are Republican efforts to save $23 billion in agriculture spending versus what many Southern farmers see as an effort to nail down profitability for some farmers by taking it out of the financial hides of farmers growing different crops. Or to put in more directly, Southern farmers who raise rice and peanuts are poised to see if the federal government gives them a smaller, less substantive farm safety net than that being afforded to farmers in the Midwest producing corn and soybeans. At a more elemental level, this fight is about whether U.S. farm policy shifts finally away from direct cash payments of commodity crop subsidies and price supports to new forms of subsidized crop insurance.” The move on Capitol Hill away from crop subsidies

and direct payments has been slow and inexorable, but visible all the same. MississipSid Salter pi’s senior Columnist U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran has fought this battle before. He fought it in 1996, again in 2002, again in 2007-08, and he’s back in the trenches again as debate rages over the 2012 Farm Bill. The Senate version of the 2012 Farm Bill under debate is a whopping 1,009 pages long and is estimated to ultimately cost taxpayers $969 billion over the next decade. But about 80 percent of that total pays for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as food stamps. After a fashion, history repeats itself. Back in 1996, the Federal Agriculture Improvement and Reform (FAIR) Act saw a farm bill passed that changed Depression-era crop subsidy programs in favor of a system offering guaran-

teed but gradually declining payments over seven years called “production flexibility contract payments.” While purporting to substantially eliminate farm subsidies, the legislation also ended government controls over what farmers could plant or what fields must be left idle. The general provisions of the new farm law were crafted by Midwestern grain-state congressmen and senators. But in 1996, Cochran was a key conferee in the bill that substantially sought to replace the old crop subsidy system with direct payments to farmers. The fear in 1996 was that smaller farmers would get squeezed out as the transition from subsidies to direct payments was made. Cochran was later credited with authoring the 2002 Farm Bill, legislation that provides income support for wheat, feed grains, cotton, rice, and oilseeds through three programs: direct payments, countercyclical payments, and marketing loans. By 2007, Cochran was the ranking member of

the Senate Appropriations Committee and its powerful Agriculture Subcommittee and a key Republican leader on the Senate Agriculture Committee. The battle in what became the 2008 Farm Bill was familiar - disagreements over the continuation of crop subsidies for farmers producing corn, cotton, soybeans and rice. Cochran argued that without the farm safety net it is more difficult for farmers to capitalize on the high market prices because there is too much uncertainty for farmers when renewing contracts or loans with farm lenders. In the current global and national economy, not even Cochran is arguing for the crop subsidies of old. He’s had a large hand in the commodity finance reforms of the last 20 years. But he is continuing to fight for fairness for Mississippi and Southern farmers on making the austerity program a more uniform austerity for all farmers. (Sid Salter is a syndicated columnist.

Around the table in 12 delicious months FISHTRAP HOLLOW — I thought about John Prine this morning first thing when, to paraphrase Prine, a bowl of Shredded Wheat tried to stare me down. And won. I’ve been on the road for pretty much a year, and that entailed a lot of pigging out along the way. Nothing allays boredom on the road like stopping to eat, or planning the next meal. How can you drive past a brisket joint in Texas when the cook is outside turning ribs on a grill? Now it is time to pay the piper or buy new clothes, bigger ones. Nothing sumptuous for me for a few weeks. I’m fighting my way back to my fighting weight. Yet I don’t regret a single meal from this year of living dangerously. To recall those calories is almost as good as digesting them. How could I not remember with fondness a giant burrito at Amanda’s Fonda in Old Colorado City?

We sat by Fountain Creek in the shadow of Pike’s Peak and watched the mule deer grazing a stone’s throw away. Pass the margarita

pitcher. And I won’t begin my regrets with Jack Dempsey’s in New Orleans, where seafood is fried the way nature intended, and the waitresses are seasoned and hennaed, not pierced and tattooed. They look like their names should be Loretta and Thelma, and they bump doors open with their hips. To them all customers are “Boo” or “Honey,” and they bring extra everything whether you ask for it or not. Nope, I am not sorry about going there, and I might have to make it back before the Mayan Calendar

brings the world to an end. I did a lot of substantial eating in Falls Church, Va., where my most loyal friend Betty Douglass lives and works. She knows all the good eateries with exotic fare that’s not readily available at the Piggly Wiggly in my hometown. My favorite is an Indian restaurant near her house, where the bread is flat and called nan and melts in your mouth. I’ll dream of it while limiting myself to dry rye. I spent three weeks in France, and the rabbit in mustard sauce at Chez Denise in Paris is the kind of meal that inspires odes and love sonnets. The night I ate there, about 20 of us crowded around a table meant for six, merrier because we were more, and sampled one another’s meals the way the French always do. And better yet were those weekly markets in every village in the French countryside, their streets for a few hours magically filled with

cheese and baguettes and pastries beneath a sea of umbrellas the color of rainbows. I ate my weight in good bread. One recent night in Biloxi, Miss., my good friend Tony Salmon threw crawfish and shrimp fresh from the Gulf into a big boiling pot. Then he dumped the pink results onto brown grocery bags spread on his dining-room table. Four of us sat and ate and talked while a heavy rain hammered the roof and Hank Williams sang away pain. That might have been the best meal of all. They say that dieting only serves to make you hungry, makes you think about food all the time. If that’s the case, and I believe it may be, then at least I’ve a lot of good memories to serve up and savor. (To find out more about Rheta Grimsley Johnson and her books, visit www.

State Briefs Associated Press

House will fund speaker’s critic travel JACKSON — The Republican-controlled Mississippi House of Representatives will pay for a critic of House Speaker Philip Gunn to go to a conference, after all. Democrat Billy Broomfield of Moss Point had criticized Gunn from the floor during the 2012 session, after House and Senate leaders declined to contribute $800,000 in state money to host the event in Biloxi in 2013. Instead, the meeting is scheduled for Mobile, Ala. Broomfield will be the group’s 2013 president. Gunn did not appoint Broomfield as a delegate to 2012’s conference in Charleston, W.V. That meant the House would not automatically pay for him to attend. However, a House committee voted Tuesday to pay Broomfield’s expenses, after another black Democrat warned that Black Caucus members could cause trouble in the 2013 legislative session over the denial.

Prison firm fined over safety issue JACKSON — A private prison operator that’s giving up its business

in Mississippi has been fined $104,000 by federal workplace safety regulators. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration says GEO Group exposed employees to assaults by inmates at the East Mississippi Correctional Facility near Lost Gap. Citations issued Tuesday by OSHA say GEO Group knowingly failed to provide adequate staffing, fix malfunctioning cell door locks or provide training to protect employees from inmate violence, including stabbings, bites and other injuries. GEO Group of Boca Raton, Fla., did not respond immediately to a request for comment. GEO Group said in April that it would give up its contracts to run East Mississippi and two other prisons in Mississippi. A Utah firm will take over.

said Lockhart, 22, was last seen early Wednesday leaving Temptations, a Bourbon Street strip club in New Orleans where she just finished her shift as a dancer. An unidentified man and woman were seen leaving the club with her early that morning. He said Tuesday the couple is not suspected in Lockhart’s death and they could be in danger. Lockhart’s torso was found on the beach in Bay St. Louis on Thursday evening. Other body parts and remnants of her clothing were found Saturday on beaches in Pass Christian and Long Beach. Bass said her feet, lower arms, hands and an upper part of a leg are still missing. Hancock County investigators went to New Orleans Monday to retrieve the surveillance video. Chief investigator Glenn Grannan said detectives also met Mon-

day with oceanographers to focus on whether tide patterns could help them trace back to the place where Lockhart’s dismembered body was dumped. She had been stabbed in the chest, but the precise cause of death remains unclear. Authorities said the body was identified in part by tattoos on her neck. Lockhart’s boyfriend reported her missing to New Orleans police and her longtime friend, Katrina Lucas Friedman, described her as “smart, and very creative.”

Forum focuses on federal policies JACKSON — The White House is hosting an African-American Regional

Policy Forum on Wednesday in Jackson, focusing on issues such as nutrition, poverty reduction and job creation. President Barack Obama will not attend, but officials from several federal agencies are scheduled to speak. The forum takes place at Jackson State University’s Mississippi eCenter. Democratic Congressman Bennie Thompson, who’s participating, says it’s a way for the U.S. Department of Agriculture, specifically, to reach out to black residents and show that the agency is “open for business for everyone.” Thompson says that in the past, the USDA has not made strong enough efforts to interact with

the African-American community. Mississippi’s population is 37 percent black.

Pair pleads guilty to yard sale scam ABERDEEN — Two men pleaded guilty to passing fake $100 bills at a yard sale in Tupelo last year. Terry Brown of Huntingdon, Tenn., and Anthony Jones of Birmingham, Ala., entered the pleas Monday in federal court in Aberdeen to one count each of passing counterfeit notes. Each faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. No sentencing date has been set. Brown and Jones were arrested in August 2011.

Vet seeks home for goose shot 7 times Associated Press

MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark. — The goose 50 Cent is on the mend. Named for the rapper who survived nine gunshot wounds, 50 Cent the waterfowl now needs a new home. The goose was brought into a northern Arkansas animal hospital

with a damaged wing. Veterinarian Rob Conner says an X-ray revealed the goose had been shot seven times with a pellet gun. Conner operated on the bird’s wing, inserting a metal rod and plastic tube to help the bird heal. Conner tells The Baxter Bulletin that workers ini-

tially wanted to name the goose Tupac, after the late rapper, but that they settled on 50 Cent because he recovered from his shooting. Authorities don’t know who shot the 50 Cent the goose. Conner says he’s hopeful someone will adopt the animal.

ARE YOU AT RISK FOR SKIN CANCER? 1. About 90% of non-melanoma skin cancer is caused by ultra-violet exposure. The UV rays of the sun are responsible for most non-melanoma skin cancers. Unprotected exposure to these rays can come from being outdoors, lying in tanning beds, and even having exposure through your car or home windows.

Associated Press

Russia sending Syria attack helicopters WASHINGTON — The Obama administration said Tuesday that Russia is sending attack helicopters to Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime and warned that the Arab country’s 15-month conflict could become even deadlier. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said the U.S. was “concerned about the latest information we have that there are attack helicopters on the way from Russia to Syria.” She said the shipment “will escalate the conflict quite dramatically.” Clinton’s comments at a public appearance with Israeli President Shimon Peres augured poorly for a peaceful solution to Syria’s conflict. Officials from around the world are warning that the violence risks becoming an all-out civil war, with Middle East power brokers from Iran to Turkey possibly being drawn into the fighting. Diplomatic hopes have rested on Washington and Moscow agreeing on a transition plan that would end the four-decade Assad regime. But Moscow has consistently rejected the use of outside forces to end the conflict or any international plan to force regime change in Damascus. Despite withering criticism from the West, it insists that any arms it supplies to Syria are not being used to quell antigovernment dissent. With diplomacy at a standstill, the reported shipment of helicopters suggests a dangerous new turn for Syria after more than a year of harsh government crackdowns on mainly peaceful protests and the emergence of an increasingly organized armed insurgency.

Republicans want outside prosecutor WASHINGTON — Attorney General Eric Holder on Tuesday fended off Republican demands that he appoint a special counsel outside of the Justice Department to look into

national security leaks. Holder said both he and FBI Director Robert Mueller have already been interviewed by the FBI as part of a fast-moving Justice Department leak investigation. At a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Sens. Lindsey Graham, RS.C., and Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said they want the attorney general to appoint a special counsel to look into the leaks, rather than Holder’s choices, U.S. Attorneys Ron Machen and Rod Rosenstein, who hold political appointments. Graham and Grassley were referring to a procedure by which a special counsel appointed from outside the Justice Department conducts the leak investigations. Holder praised the two U.S. attorneys as experienced and highly respected. “We have people who have shown independence, an ability to be thorough and who have the guts to ask tough questions,” Holder told the committee. “And the charge that I’ve given them is to follow the leads wherever they are, whether it is — wherever it is in the executive branch or some other component of government. I have great faith in their abilities.”

4-year university price up 15 percent When those college tuition bills come in, be prepared for sticker shock. The average tuition at a four-year public university climbed 15 percent between 2008 and 2010, fueled by state budget cuts for higher education and increases of 40 percent and more at universities in states like Georgia, Arizona and California. The U.S. Department of Education’s annual look at college affordability also found significant price increases at the nation’s private universities, including at for-profit institutions, where the net price for some schools is now twice as high as Harvard. At Full Sail University, a film and art school in central Florida, the average price of tuition, fees, books, and other expenses totals $43,990, even

2. One person dies from melanoma almost every hour. A common misconception is that you cannot die from skin cancer. Unfortunately, about 8,000 people will die of melanoma in the U.S. this year. It is estimated that 2,800 people will die of non-melanoma skin cancer this year as well. The sad thing is that most of these deaths could have been prevented by following easy skin cancer prevention methods.

3. Skin cancer accounts for nearly 50% of all cancers combined.

Skin cancer is the most commonly diagnosed type of cancer among men and women. Exposure to UV rays through natural and artifical means is the culprit. Since skin cancer is such a common type of cancer, it is advised that everyone examine their skin at home and undergo a yearly clinical skin exam by their doctor.

4. More than one million cases of skin cancer will be diagnosed this year. The American Cancer Society estimates that 1.5 million cases of skin cancer will be diagnosed this year, a number that is expected to continually rise. The culprit? Exposure to harmful UV rays from the sun and artificial means like tanning beds.

when grants and scholarships are factored in. The average net price for an incoming Harvard student: $18,277, according to the department. Net price is cost of attendance minus grant and scholarship aid. Education Secretary Arne Duncan said students need to be smart consumers and states needs to do their part by making higher education a priority in their budgets. Forty percent of states cut higher education spending last year, the most important factor in tuition increases. “As a nation, we need more college graduates in order to stay competitive in the global economy,” Duncan said. “But if the costs keep on rising, especially at a time when family incomes are hurting, college will become increasingly unaffordable for the middle class.” Pennsylvania State University had the highest in-state tuition for a fouryear public university at $15,250 during the 201011 school year. When the costs of room, board and other expenses are factored in, the total rises to $19,816, the fourth highest net price nationwide.

Smoke from wildfire blankets Denver LOVELAND, Colo. — A northern Colorado wildfire 60 miles away wrapped Denver in a pungent cloud of smoke for several hours Tuesday and complicated the aerial offensive against the spreading mountain blaze, which has killed one person and destroyed more than 100 structures. Downtown Denver was shrouded in an orange glow before a blanket of cold air trapping the fire pollution evaporated. The foothills stretching north to Fort Collins were virtually obscured by smoke, while closer to the 68-square-mile blaze, visibility on some highways was just a mile. State health officials urged the elderly, children and those prone to asthma to stay indoors. Smoke temporarily grounded the air attack on the High Park Fire, centered some 15 miles northwest of Fort Collins. Helicopters and tanker planes took to the skies by midday. Larimer County authorities allowed some residents to return home — but issued 25 more evacuation notices to residents on the fire’s western flank. In southern New Mexico, firefighters made progress on a 56-square-mile fire that forced hundreds of residents to evacuate near the mountain village of Ruidoso. Some 125 homes and outbuildings have burned, and the damage assessment was continuing, said Kerry Gladden, a Ruidoso town spokeswoman.

5. Skin cancer is most deadly for African Americans, Asians, and Latinos. The risk of developing melanoma is rather low for African Americans, Asians, and Latinos, however this type of skin cancer is typically more deadly for these groups. You should know that all people are at risk of developing skin cancer, regardless of ethnicity.

6. One in Three Caucasians will be diagnosed with skin cancer. One in five Americans will be diagnosed in their lifetime with skin cancer. The risk is higher for white individuals: one in three.

7. Just one bad burn in childhood increases the risk of developing melanoma later. Protecting children against UV exposure is essential for healthy skin into adulthood. A single blistering sunburn during childhood increases the risk of melanoma as an adult.

8. Men are diagnosed with skin cancer more often than women. Did you know that men are twice as likely to develop skin cancer than women? In fact, skin cancer is more common than prostate cancer, lung cancer, and colon cancer in men over 50. This makes skin cancer the most common type of cancer in men over 50.

Wholesale prices

Producer price index

Executive stafďŹ ng agency Korn/Ferry International reports ďŹ scal fourth-quarter earnings today. Wall Street anticipates the company will post lower adjusted earnings for the February-to-April quarter compared with a year earlier. Korn/Ferryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fee revenue declined slightly in its third quarter, reďŹ&#x201A;ecting a 3 percent drop in the number of executive recruitment engagements is the bottom line. it billed.

Declining gas and energy costs have been driving down U.S. wholesale prices lately.

Monthly percentage change


The producer price index, which measures price changes before they reach the consumer, fell in April. Economists expect it dipped again in May. Modest wholesale inflation reduces pressure on manufacturers and retailers to raise prices. That helps keep consumer prices stable.

Durant powers Thunder past Heat BY BRIAN MAHONEY Associated Press

OKLAHOMA CITY — Kevin Durant showed LeBron James how to play the fourth quarter in the NBA Finals. Durant scored 17 of his 36 points in another nightmarish final period for James and his team, leading a Thunder storm that overwhelmed the Heat and gave Oklahoma City a 105-94 victory over Miami in Game 1 on Tuesday night. Teaming with Russell Westbrook to outscore the Heat in the second half by themselves, Durant struck first in his head-to-head matchup with James, who had seven

points in the final quarter and was helpless to stop the league’s three-time scoring champion. Westbrook turned around a poor shooting start to finish with 27 points, 11 assists and eight rebounds for the Thunder, keying a strong finish to the third period that gave the Thunder the lead for good. Durant took over from there. Scoring in nearly every way possible, Durant finished 12 of 20 from the field and added eight rebounds. He and Westbrook outscored the Heat 4140 over the final two periods, showing that maybe this time

it will be offense that wins championships. James finished with 30 points, his most in any of his 11 finals games, but had only one basket over the first 8:15 of the fourth, when the Thunder seized control of a game they trailed for all but the final few seconds of the first three quarters. James averaged just three points in the fourth quarters of the Heat’s six-game loss to Dallas last year, taking almost all the heat for Miami’s finals failure. He was good in this one, Durant was just better. And when fans chanted “MVP! MVP!” late in the

game, they weren’t talking about James, the guy who won the regular-season award. They meant Durant, who is in a race with James for his first ring — and maybe the title of best player in the game. Game 2 is Thursday night in Oklahoma City. It will take more from the rest of Miami’s Big Three for the Heat to get past the Oklahoma City Thunder. Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh combined to go 11-for30 from the field in Miami’s loss to Oklahoma City on Tuesday night, totaling 29 points to go with James’ 30.

Warrior duo headlines 1-4A baseball team BY H. LEE SMITH II

A pair of recent Corinth graduates ended their prep careers by claiming two of the top four individual awards in Division 1-4A baseball. Lew Johnson garnered Offensive Player of the Year honors in the six-team league, while Jalen Kirk and Itawamba’s Austin Shumpert shared Defensive Player of the Year

honors. Both Warrior standouts played in the annual Northeast Mississippi Coaches Association for Better Baseball All-Star Game. Amory, Corinth, Itawamba AHS, Pontotoc, Shannon and Tishomingo County comprised the six-team conference. Corinth, playing in Class 4A for the first time since 1995, finished 10-17 overall and 2-8

in league play. Johnson batted a team-best .342 (26-of-76) with eight doubles, one homer and 15 RBI. He walked a team-high 27 times, including seven intentional passes, and was hit twice in compiling a team-leading .519 on-base percentage. The four-year veteran, who led the team in slugging at .487, was also perfect in 20 stolen base attempts.

One of only three Warriors to play all 179 innings, Johnson recorded 56 putouts and had a team-high 70 assists -- mostly at shortstop -- while having a hand in nine double plays. Kirk recorded 43 putouts -- many highlight-reel worthy -- and one assist while comvmitting just five errors in 159 innings in centerfield. At the Please see WARRIOR | 9A

South Carolina newcomers power latest run The Associated Press

COLUMBIA, S.C. — South Carolina coach Ray Tanner wasn’t sure when the year began if his team would have a chance to three-peat at the College World Series. And with good reason, the Gamecocks had lost so much. The past two CWS most valuable players — center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. and second baseman Scott Wingo — were gone, along with regulars at third base, catcher, shortstop and left field. Players who accounted for two thirds of the team’s RBIs in 2011 were not back this season.

“It was not going to be easy,” Tanner said. Nonetheless, they’re back in Omaha. The Gamecocks have a shot at a third straight national title, a streak of success only Southern Cal and its five consecutive crowns can claim in college baseball. South Carolina returns to the CWS thanks to significant contributions from its newcomers in the Gamecocks 5-1 victory over Oklahoma on Monday. Freshman left fielder Tanner English had two bunt singles and an RBI. New second baseman Chase Vergason sealed

the victory with a two-run double. And they haven’t been the only fresh faces to fuel this latest Gamecock run. Freshman shortstop Joey Pankake and junior transfer third baseman LB Dantzler helped South Carolina beat rival Clemson twice earlier this month to reach the super regional round. “We had a good group of guys come in,” English said of his fellow first-year players. “We were fortunate to have a great group of older guys to lead us and help show us the way to play ball here.” The newcomers had their

struggles early. The Gamecocks (45-17) looked to be a free-fall when they were swept in a series at Kentucky and lost two of three to Florida to start 1-5 in Southeastern Conference play. Pankake had 16 errors his first 40 games, nearly equaling the 20 shortstops Bobby Haney and Peter Mooney made combined in 2010 and 2011. The veteran pitching staff was also breaking in freshman catcher Grayson Greiner. Tanner, who leans heavily Please see NEWCOMERS | 9A

Roger Clemens’ fate in hands of ‘final umpires’ The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The dozen Washingtonians who will decide Roger Clemens’ fate heard a day of closing arguments stuffed with attention-getting sound bites. The eight women and four men who mostly care little about baseball then began deliberations Tuesday that will impact one of the most successful pitchers of his generation — and, in a way, the criminal pursuit of athletes accused of illegal doping. “You,” prosecutor Gil Guerrero told the jurors, “are the

final umpires here.” They heard a clever line about Clemens being “a Cy Young baseball player” but not “a Cy Young witness.” They heard the key witness called “a flawed man” who produced evidence from a “magic beer can.” There were asked to debate whether it’s “outrageous” that Clemens was charged in the first place, or whether it’s a byproduct from Congress’ “authority to protect the nation’s youth.” Having digested the competing spins on 26 days of tes-

timony by 46 witnesses, the jury met for some 15 minutes before being excused for the day at 5 p.m. They will reconvene Wednesday afternoon, then unless they reach a quick verdict, take off until Monday because of a long-scheduled out-of-town business trip by the judge. Clemens is charged with perjury, making false statements and obstructing Congress when he testified at a deposition and at a nationallytelevised hearing in February 2008. The heart of the charges

center on his repeated denials that he used steroids and human growth hormone. Clemens’ chief accuser was his longtime strength coach, Brian McNamee, who spent more than a week on the stand and testified that he injected Clemens with both substances. But also essentially on trial was Congress’ right to hold the hearings in the first place, and Clemens lawyer Rusty Hardin spent part of his closing statement appealing to the notion Please see CLEMENS | 9A

on experience in his 16 seasons at South Carolina, had few cards to play and was even feeling the pressure at home as his 6-yearold daughter Maggie kept telling him they needed to go back to Omaha because it’s so much fun there. Gradually, the jit-

tery newcomers became steadier, sure handed and ready to hit in the clutch. Pankake hasn’t made an error in 19 games, Greiner was selected by play for the USA Baseball collegiate national team. And big hits were coming from everywhere in the lineup instead of just near the top where CWS veterans Evan Marzilli, Christian Walker and

Adam Matthews were stacked. “This team stayed the course and was resilient,” Tanner said. “We lost some close ones, but if you stay (around), sometimes it works out.” It’s worked out again for South Carolina in the NCAA tournament. The Gamecocks ran their record streak of tournament wins — set at last

year’s College World Series — to 21 with their two victories over Oklahoma, which was the last team to defeat South Carolina at the 2010 CWS. Gamecocks star closer Matt Price called the firsttime players “sluggish” at first, something English chuckled about at the postgame media session. “But after they got a few games in, they start-

ed growing,” Price said. English thinks it was the just the getting-toknow-you process between the veterans the rookies. “It took us a little while to get going and learn how to play with each other,” he said. “We had to learn each other’s personality on and off the field. Now it’s like we’re a family.”

Department drugs-insports investigations that bore little fruit. More than seven years of probing yielded a guilty verdict on only one count of obstruction of justice last year against baseball’s all-time home run leader, Barry Bonds. A two-year, multicontinent investigation of cyclist Lance Armstrong was recently closed with no charges brought. The case against Clemens was far from tidy, relying heavily on a witness who carried a lot of personal baggage and physical evidence that sat for years inside a beer can. McNamee was the only person who testified to firsthand knowledge of Clemens using the drugs in question. McNamee said he injected Clemens with steroids in 1998, 2000 and 2001 and with

HGH in 2000. He also said he saved the needle and other waste from a 2001 steroids injection of Clemens and stored it in and around a Miller Lite can and put it in a FedEx box. Some of the waste was shown to have Clemens’ DNA and steroids on it. Clemens’ lawyers spent much of the trial attacking McNamee’s credibility and integrity. McNamee acknowledged that details of his own story changed over the years, but he said that was partly because he initially tried to protect Clemens as much as possible. “Saying that Brian McNamee lies zero times,” Hardin said, “is kind of like calling the Grand Canyon a ditch.” Hardin produced a chart titled: “Brian

McNamee’s testimony is admittedly not credible.” It listed more than two dozen times in which Hardin said McNamee either lied outright or said something that resulted from a “mistake” or “bad memory.”

Guerrero readily conceded that McNamee is a “flawed man.” “We’re not asking you to even like him,” Guerrero said. “Brian McNamee did a lot of things that aren’t nice, and we know that.”


that the U.S. government was way out of line. “What’s happened in this case,” Hardin said, “is a horrible, horrible overreach by the government and everyone involved.” Prosecutor Gil Guerrero argued that Congress had the right to care because major league baseball players are role models. “They influence children. They influence kids. Congress has to be involved with that,” Guerrero said in a packed federal courtroom that included Clemens’ wife and four sons. “Congress has the authority to protect the nation’s youth.” It’s a debate that’s timely following a pair of expensive Justice

‘Sweet vindication’ for Sauter

Kurt Busch, driver of the No. 51 Phoenix Construction Services Chevrolet, stands on the grid during qualifying for the Sprint Cup Series Aaron's 499 at Talladega Superspeedway on May 5, running the “ME” paint scheme from the film “Talladega Nights” film. (NASCAR photo)

Many hope suspension will be lesson learned for Busch


he big question surrounding Kurt Busch – on NASCAR probation until the end of the year, and just coming off a one-week suspension for cursing a reporter – is whether the suspension got his attention. In the past, suspensions have proven to be an effective way of letting a driver know that NASCAR officials are in charge of the sport and expect their standards for behavior on and off the track to be followed. It worked for Kevin Harvick, Jimmy Spencer and even Kyle Busch in the fairly recent past, and according to some, it could work again in Kurt Busch’s case. “Kurt Busch’s suspension is long overdue, and that is coming from someone who learned his lesson after sitting out a race for punching him a few years ago,” Spencer said. “Kurt has been given plenty of chances to right his wrongs and put himself back on the right path, but he has failed to take advantage of any of those opportunities. “NASCAR had to do something to restore a sense of respect toward the sport on Kurt’s behalf, because he seems to consistently flaunt his disrespect for everything and everyone in this sport. Maybe sitting out and watching the race from the pit box or his couch will wake him up to how great he really has it.” Spencer said his own suspension back

in 2003 for slapping Busch in the garage at Michigan had a positive effect on him. “I can say that my suspension was extremely upsetting to me, but it made me a better person off the track,” he said. “That’s what Kurt needs now, and I hope this helps him. It seems to have straightened his little brother, Kyle, out, and I hope the same is true for Kurt.” Jeff Gordon told reporters at Pocono that he hopes Busch can bounce back. “I think he could have such a bright future in this sport,” Gordon said. “I think that you continue to hope that a guy learns his lesson, and a guy can pull it together. I’m sure in his mind this is a minor incident and didn’t justify what happened, but eventually you have to start straightening up your act, and utilizing your talent on the race track to earn the respect. “This, unfortunately, is a step backwards for him.” Tony Stewart, who is both a car owner and driver, said how sponsors react will play a major role in determining Busch’s future. “Half of the battle is getting a good partner and sponsor, and if the sponsors are leery, then it puts you in a bad spot as an owner, unless you have unlimited funding and can just put in there whoever you want,” he said. “It’s definitely a huge concern.”

Hall of Famer Owens dies Less than a month after being elected to the NASCAR Hall of Fame, former driver and car owner Everett “Cotton” Owens died after a lengthy battle with cancer. Owens, 88, won nine times as a driver in the series now known as Sprint Cup and finished second to Lee Petty in the 1959 title run. He also won NASCAR’s Everett “Cotton” Owens Modified championship in (NASCAR photo) 1953 and 1954. He ended his driving days while still in his prime. He won his next-to-last race, at Richmond in 1964, and finished second to Ned Jarrett in his final run, at Orange Speedway in Hillsboro, N.C., on Sept. 20, 1964 But his biggest successes came as a car owner. He won 38 times, 27 of them with fellow Spartanburg, S.C., resident David Pearson doing the driving. Owens’ final win came in the 1970 Southern 500 with Buddy Baker driving his No. 6 Dodge. NASCAR chairman Brian France issued the following statement: “NASCAR has lost one of its true pioneers, with the passing of Cotton Owens… This is a sad day for the NASCAR industry, but we are all consoled by the fact that Cotton was voted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame before his death. Today we have lost a portion of our past. But people like Cotton Owens are the reason our sport thrives today – and can look forward to a promising future.”

Pocono win catapults Logano out of Cup doldrums With his career chips down, and his Sprint Cup future uncertain, 22year-old Joey Logano turned in the kind of performance at Pocono Raceway that should go a long way toward assuring him of a long future in NASCAR’s elite division. Logano, touted as “Sliced Bread” (as in “best thing since”) when he joined the Cup circuit in 2009 at age 19, won a rain-shortened race at New Hampshire on a fuel gamble his rookie year. But more recently he’s been lackluster at best despite driving for Joe Gibbs Racing, one of the sport’s powerhouse teams. He finished 24th in points last year. But at Pocono, he was fast in practice, won the pole, led 49 laps and overcame a late-race challenge from veteran Mark Martin to get the victory, which puts him right in the thick of the battle for a berth in the Chase for the Sprint Cup. He said in his winner’s interview that his turn around actually started in the Nationwide Series, where he has four wins in 10 starts this season. “Last year was obviously a tough year for us, not many Nationwide wins, been winless over here [in Cup],” he said. “It was a very hard year, and this year getting those four Nationwide wins under our belts

(NASCAR photo) already, as a driver, that puts a lot of confidence in yourself, saying, ‘Hey, I can do this.’” He said that confidence is a must. “You’ve got to have that little arrogance or cockiness as an athlete to have that,” he said. “That’s really important. You don’t have to be a

jerk about it, you can still be a nice guy and smile every once in a while, but at the same time you have to believe in yourself a lot and know that you’re the best race car driver out there. “As long as you believe in yourself and know that, but at the same time be humble enough to learn things from other drivers, and learn things from other people out there, I think that’s what makes a special athlete.” He said he’s not been informed about his contract status for next year, but he’s much more encouraged after his win. “It’s all up in the air,” he said. “Obviously, winning a race means a lot and it helps that out a ton. For sure right now my future is not set with anybody.” Martin said he hopes Logano, whom he first saw race in kids’ events in the Southeast, is again on the right track, career-wise. “Maybe things will start to turn,” Martin said. “He’s been kind of in a stall in his career, or in his progression with the Cup Series. But it looks like, the last couple of weeks, that maybe that’s starting to turn. “I’ve always known since I saw him drive at 11 years old that he could be a Cup champion. “I knew it then.”

Between his grandmother’s cooking and a change of luck, Johnny Sauter had a weekend to remember at Texas Motor Speedway. And he got to put behind him a bitter disappointment from a year ago. In last June’s Camping World Truck Series race at Texas, he was black-flagged on a restart with two laps to go, and went from a likely win to a 22nd-place finish. This time around, Sauter, now a five-time winner in the Truck Series and the seventh winner in seven races this year, had a fast truck from the start of practice and closed the deal after two challengers, Ty Dillon and James Buescher, crashed late in the race. “There’s no sweeter vindication,” Sauter said in his post-race interview. “Last year was really tough to swallow. Had the dominant truck, and to come down to a late-race restart like that … Rules are rules, and I broke a rule. That was tough to swallow.” The only hitch in Sauter’s recent weekend was the rain that washed out qualifying and took away a chance for him to earn a top starting spot. Instead, the lineup was based on points. “To start the race in 20th, and to ultimately be able to drive to the lead and overcome some obstacles tonight, I couldn’t be prouder of [crew chief Joe Shear] and all the guys at ThorSport,” Sauter said. “The driver is only a small part of the equation, and that truck could Johnny Sauter pretty much drive itself.” (NASCAR photo) Sauter’s typically been fast at Texas, which is sort of like a home track for the Wisconsin native. “My grandma lives 20 miles down the road in Dallas, and I get an opportunity to go there and have chicken and dumplings every year, homemade nonetheless,” he said. “It’s cool. It’s like a relaxing feeling to be able to hang out and do those things.”

Busch wins Prelude at Eldora Kyle Busch won the eighth annual Prelude to the Dream all-star race at Tony Stewart’s Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio, last Wednesday night, but Stewart, who finished second, seemed just as happy afterward. He had praise for his fellow Sprint Cup drivers, who had to work in the charity event between test sessions at Pocono Raceway, where they’re preparing for Sunday’s 400-miler on a newly repaved track. “I think that speaks volumes to what this event is all about, and what it means for these guys to be here,” Stewart said. Austin Dillon finished third, ahead of sprint car racer Donny Schatz and Ryan Newman. Danica Patrick finished 15th in her first try in a dirt Late Model. “I realized early that I wasn’t really in the mix, so I figured I would take the chance to get comfortable driving sideways a little bit more, as I’ve found that that helps in driving a stock car,” she told reporters afterward. “I was just feeling it out, and I really wanted to bring the car home without balling it up. “I sort of did that.” When the Cup drivers left Eldora, the regular Late Model drivers moved in for the Dream, a $100,000-to-win race. It was won by Shane Clanton, the younger brother of one-time NASCAR truck and Nationwide Series driver Joey Clanton.

Nature notes: ungrateful lizard, persistent woodpecker If I kept one of those nature logs, the recent entries would go something like this: Swarms.... Charlie.... The ungrateful lizard.... Two hot hikes at Big Hill Pond.... Hummers... Question mark.... Darn bugs. The swarms and hikes I’ll write about another day. Let me start with Charlie (short for Charlotte, not for Charles). My husband had his shoulder operated on last month, so I’ve been helping him feed the horses their evening mix of oats and corn, then turn them back outside to graze. Our pretty filly is a Good Eater, and John, of course, can’t exercise her these days. So Charlie’s growing a “grass belly.” Practically looks pregnant. Every other night, I’ve had to fasten a muzzle -- a lot like a shortstop’s mask -- over her face and loop it behind her ears. The straps don’t stop a horse from eating, but they slow her down. What gets me is her

sweetness. If a thousand pounder decided not to let me put Ryland a stupid Bruhwiler basket on her head, Columnist she would win that contest, I assure you. I offer a slice of carrot which she accepts between her velvet lips and, while she’s munching, I slide the muzzle up -- awkwardly -and fumble with the hook. She shakes her head a bit, but permits it. Each time I am amazed. Not every critter I encounter is as charming. Take that yellow-bellied lizard in the horses’ trough. I went to fill it up a few days ago and found the doomed critter dog paddling round and round the plastic barrel, nose barely above the water. I tried to scoop him up. He kept scooting away. I persevered (doing my St.

Less joyous to me is that twice this last week I’ve heard lone cicadas start up their long drawn, rattling whine. Yes, I know folks love that rise and fall. Think summer’s not summer without them. To me, they’re summer all right: hot and long and wearing. Francis number) and finally managed to almost hold him just long enough to toss him out onto the ground -- in the middle of which, he turned his head and bit me with his little lizard teeth! Onward and upward: Finally got around to setting a second feeder for the hummingbirds just outside my study window. Those kamikazes look so cute, so innocent, as they perch like puny penguins and sip-sip-sip, lifting their pretty heads every other moment to keep a beady eye out for other thirsty birdies. Some eat and run. The motto of most,

however, is “Dive bomb the other guy -- or be bayonetted!” They’re brave as lions. Pitiless as eagles. Meaner than a junkyard dog. I’d love to take a real “birder” down to our pond. Just before you reach it, there’s a mighty oak within a clearing, and every evening some bird keeps singing a loud and joyous song. Same bird, same aria, every night. Wish I knew his name. Less joyous to me is that twice this last week I’ve heard lone cicadas start up their long drawn, rattling whine. Yes, I know folks love that rise and fall. Think summer’s not

summer without them. To me, they’re summer all right: hot and long and wearing. Summer may mean barbecue and beaches to you. To me it also means mosquitoes (which are plentiful this year) and horseflies (ditto) and ticks. Ah yes, the ticks. Worst year, but one, that I remember. None of my recent Nature Notes, however, holds a candle to Margaret’s. After the storm ran through Memphis last Monday, she and her husband found a baby woodpecker in their backyard. “JB sprinkled some crumbs,” she wrote, “which interested him not in the least. We decided to leave baby W for fear his red-headed mom wouldn’t come after him.” While they watched from their kitchen window, “all on his own he hopped into a flower bed surrounding a tree that he probably fell from. “Soon his mother was on-site and soon she had him climbing the

tree. She would perch upside down, feeding him bugs, and he went steadily upward.” He began “pecking the bark for bugs all by himself. Still she pecked bugs from a hanging basket and fed him. He seemed to grow stronger by the second and was soon about 15 feet up the tree.” Though they were fascinated, they had errands they had to run. When Margaret returned, there was no sign of either bird, but she felt certain “he made it to the top of the tree and possibly to the nest. Miracles happen.” I’m not sure Ms. W. Pecker would have seen it that way. Miracles imply something contrary to Nature. But horses endure. Hummers insist. Mothers try. (Ryland Bruhwiler lives on a farm in McNairy County, Tenn.

The same is Movie Critic true with fairytale kingdoms. Some rulers are compassionate and want to be sure all their people are cared for, while others rule over their kingdom with tyranny. Those who survive are a part of the good, bad and ugly. In “Snow White and the Huntsman,” the ruler of the kingdom is killed and his daughter Snow White (Kristen Stewart) is captured and kept in a prison cell. Now the kingdom is ruled by Snow White’s stepmother and the kingdom’s people are starving and suppressed. This movie’s version of the story delivers an engaging story about kindness and helping the misfortunate. Everyone in the kingdom believes Snow White is dead. It becomes essential for her to escape from prison so her people will recognize her. She can then help her people regain their pride and fight for freedom and justice. Snow White’s mother had taught her that though her beauty was physical, it was also within her heart. The current queen (Charilze Theron) is a mean vicious woman. She also realizes Snow White has powers that will help her keep her own beauty and remain young and powerful. She summons her brother Prince William (Sam Claflin) to bring Snow White to her from her prison cell. While attempting this feat, Snow White escapes. Prince William must journey into the Black Forest to find Snow White, but first he must find someone who knows the Black Forrest.

Enjoy growing mint without any trouble Mint is one of those plants gardeners both love and hate at the same time. Many gardeners love the sweet fragrance they smell when they brush against the mint foliage. They also find mint iced tea to be delicious or a mint julep to be a surefire summer time refreshment. But in the landscape, mint grows aggressively and can quickly take over an area. I’ve heard people say -- hopefully in jest -that the only way to control mint in the landscape is to move. What we call mint is actually a diverse group of plants. It seems there are hundreds of varieties the home gardener can grow. Peppermint and spearmint are perhaps the best known, with their familiar fragrances. Other varieties expand the olfactory mint experience. Ginger mint, apple mint and orange mint all are appropriately named. The mention of chocolate mint brings mint chocolate candies to mind, but to me, the name more accurately describes the contrast of the chocolate brown stems to the bright green foliage. The smell and taste of mint are well known, but many people don’t notice these plants have flowers, too. Flowers are produced in spikes that are magnets for various kinds of pollinators, especially bumblebees and wasps. Most herbs taste best before the flowers form, but mint tastes and smells best after the flowers have formed. Most of the mints I’ve

mentioned are comm o n l y found in garden centers, especially Gary in spring Bachman and early summer. Southern But mint is Gardening really easy to propagate if you have a friend growing the variety of mint you want to grow. Divide a plant to have many smaller plants to share. Mint produces stems that scramble across the ground, forming roots wherever the stem touches the ground. Snip off some of these sections with roots, and they will readily grow into new plants. Another way to start a plant is to take a cutting and place it in a glass of water. Roots should form in a couple of weeks. Despite the jokes about mint’s proliferation, controlling its growth is not an impossible mission. The key is to establish boundaries. An easy way to do this is to plant mint in a tall, bottomless container. Dig the planting hole and place the bottomless container in the hole, leaving a few inches above ground. Fill the container with good, amended soil and plant the mint. The bottomless container will provide a physical barrier that prevents the spread of the root system. I’ve come up with a unique solution to controlling mint and recycling at the same time. In the summer months, it’s common to see coolers

For greatest flavor and fragrance, harvest mint after flowers are produced. beside the road that have fallen off pickups and out of boats. I stop and pick these coolers up. When filled with good potting mix, the mint grows well, and the roots cannot escape. Be sure the drain plug is open so the plants are not over-watered. If the cooler doesn’t have a drain plug, simply drill some drain holes in the bottom. Wherever you grow mint, be sure to try some so you can enjoy the smell outdoors and the taste indoors. (Dr. Gary Bachman is an assistant Extension research professor of horticulture at the Coastal Research and Extension Center in Biloxi.)

WASHINGTON — Americans are buying more homes in every region of the country, the latest indication that the housing market could be on the mend. An increasing portion of those sales are from first-time buyers, who are critical to a housing recovery. Sales of previously occupied rose 3.4 percent in April from March to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.62 million, the National Association of Realtors said Tuesday. That nearly matches January’s pace of 4.63 million —the best in two years. It is still well below the nearly 6 million that most economists equate with healthy markets. A pickup in hiring and


cheaper mortgages, combined with lower home prices in most markets, has made home buying more attractive. While many economists acknowledged that the market has a long way to go, most said the April sales report was encouraging. “The trend in sales is upward, and we think it has a good deal further to go over the next few months as payrolls pick up further and mortgage availability improves,” said Ian Shepherdson, chief U.S. economist for High Frequency Economics. Sales rose last month from March in all regions of the country. They increased 5.1 percent rise in the Northeast, 3.5 percent in the South, 4.4 percent

in the West and 1 percent in the Midwest. And more first-time buyers entered the market. In April, they made up 35 percent of sales. That’s up from 32 percent in March. “First-time homebuyers are slowly making their way back,” said Jennifer Lee, an economist at BMO Capital Markets. “That is still below the 40 percent-to-45 percent range during healthy times, but the highest in almost half a year.” The report measures completed sales. A sale typically closes a month or two after a buyer signs a contract to buy a home. But a growing number of buyers in recent months have been investors who pay cash, which speeds up the process.

Couple headed for altar trips over boyfriend’s fling DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend, “Wally,” and I have been friends for several years, and a couple for nearly two. He recently brought up the subject of marriage, and we agreed that we are likely altarbound. Only one thing gives me pause. A few months ago, Wally got plastered and had a fling with a female friend. He regretted it immediately and said it was what made him realize I am “The One.” (He is getting help for his drinking now.) The problem is, the woman is still pursuing him. She buys him gifts or brings him vegan meals. He has asked her repeatedly to stop, to no avail. Because Wally is a vegetarian and I’m not, I sus-

pect she’s trying to prove she would be a better partner for him. Abigail I have Van Buren a s k e d Wally to Dear Abby cut off contact with her, but he won’t. He feels bad for her because she has few friends and lives in an isolated little town. What do you suggest I do? -- UNWILLING TO SHARE DEAR UNWILLING TO SHARE: Raise the subject of marriage with Wally again, and tell him his continued contact with the woman he cheated with is hurtful to you and a threat to your

relationship. Ask how he would feel if you continued to see and accept gifts from a man you’d had a drunken fling with. If he says he wouldn’t be thrilled, perhaps he’ll be able to understand your reaction to what’s going on. If he says he’d be fine with it, then Wally isn’t the man for you. DEAR ABBY: My 13-year-old niece, “Amelia,” is a beautiful young girl. She has only two flaws -- she lies constantly and she’s boy-crazy. I have to listen to my sister talk on and on about how hard it is to trust her. My sister and brother-inlaw have set many rules and limits for my niece. I think her punishments for breaking rules fit the crime -- grounding, hav-

ing things taken away, etc. Amelia knows she can’t have a boyfriend until she’s 16. Lately, she keeps trying to get boys’ phone numbers and meet with them. She has also been caught sexting three times and lying about it. As her punishment this time, my sister and her husband shaved Amelia’s head. I am shocked and devastated for my niece. I think it was extremely inappropriate. When I try to talk to my sister about my concerns, she tells me she had no choice because her daughter had so many warnings. I don’t know what to do. I think my niece will need counseling. My sister says I am overreacting. Am I? Or did she? -- WORRIED

AUNT IN UTAH DEAR WORRIED AUNT: Amelia’s parents went off the deep end. What was done to her was awful, and you are not overreacting. Instead of shaving her daughter’s head, your sister should have tried to understand why she is lying and desperately seeking attention from boys. If I ever heard of a family in need of family therapy, it is your sister’s. Love, attention and less draconian punishments are what Amelia needs, not months of public shaming. DEAR ABBY: My husband committed suicide 20 years ago. He left a note, but I never shared it with our children, as they were very young

at the time. They are all happy, successful adults. Should I share the note with them? I still have it. -- ANONYMOUS DOWN SOUTH DEAR ANONYMOUS: Your children are probably curious about why their father chose to end his life. Let them know the note exists, share it with them if they would like to see it and answer any questions they may have. They have a right to know.

Leo’s lesson in social graces can be summed up in three words: Less is more. Ever the entertainer, Leo doesn’t have to worry about coming across as boring. It’s simply not an option. Leo’s mind gravitates toward attention-grabbing and often provocative topics. Also, Leo has the subconscious agenda of behaving in a manner that others will find memorable if not funny and fascinating. To the lion, laughter and applause are the music of life. Given Leo’s natural inclinations, appropriate socializing includes a great deal of self-control and internal editing. The wise Leo stays socially in check, realizing the benefit of holding back. Not every story

needs an answer story from the personal history archives. Listening is more important than talking. Holding space and seeming interested can be charming social moves. Being bigger than life can scare people. The party does not always need a star. You don’t have to be a Leo to benefit from the principle of “less is more.” Any sign can play it cool! CELEBRITY PROFILES: A poster child for versatility, Tim Allen has played everything from an intergalactic superhero to Santa Claus, with a few middle-aged family men along the way. The one constant is that this Gemini with his natal Mars and Jupiter in Gemini, as well, is always funny. Allen’s star continues to rise to infinity and beyond.

Also, the sun angles responsible Saturn to bring a present to Gemini people celebrating their birthdays this time of year. The gift is big-time motivation and the organizational skills needed for getting life gloriously together. ARIES (March 21-April 19). Were you born this way, or did you become this way? The only rightful conclusion is: It doesn’t matter. Embracing the you that you’ve become without further question is your best move yet. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). When was the last time you wrote a letter to a famous person or to someone who could change the laws and systems by which society abides? Reaching out today will be lucky for you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There’s someone you feel drawn to talk with, and there is absolutely no reason why you shouldn’t. Today is perfect. Sit down and tell this person what you’re thinking. CANCER (June 22-July 22). The only thing more delicious than a juicy opportunity is the ability to recognize it when it comes along. Street smarts, practicality and financial savvy will help you turn a profit. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22).

Bitesized knowledge will delight you -- but anything more and you’re stuffed. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Reach out, and another person will reach toward you to close the space. Go forward, and you’ll be accepted and embraced. Think the best of people, and your open mind and heart bring out the best, too. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). Your original expectation of someone may have proved wrong, but all is not lost. This person will contribute something valuable and quite different from what you anticipated. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). Learning gets frustrating. Not understanding as fast as you’d like, you may be tempted to quit. Better to take a breather than to make a

(The eight were arrested after one of them went to U.S. authorities; six of the saboteurs were executed.)
