Hillandale Golf Course Pro Shop Manager William Cole gets range balls ready for golfers. The course reopened last Wednesday with 58 golfers playing on day one.

Former country club will be golf only BY STEVE BEAVERS sbeavers@dailycorinthian.com

Hillandale is back in the golf business. Golfers got back in the swing of things last Wednesday at the 18-hole course on Oakland School Road. “We are golf only this summer,” said Pro Shop Manager William Cole. “The course will be open until the end of October and then we will evaluate where we have been.” Hillandale Golf Course, which features three sets of

tees for different skill levels, is open Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. “Hillandale is now ‘pay as you play’ with the last cart going off at 5 p.m. and must be returned at 7 p.m.,” added Cole. The golf course is enticing area golfers with its special opening rates. Green fees are $40 for 18 holes of golf, with cart included, on Saturday and Sunday. Rates for Wednesday and Friday are $30 for 18

holes with a cart. Senior rates are $20 for 18 holes with a cart on Wednesday and Friday. “We will continue the special rates at least through the month,” said the pro shop manager. Wednesday’s opening day was a good start, according to Cole. “It was better than expected,” he said. “We were expecting around 35 and had close to 60.” Please see HILLANDALE | 2A

Identical twins love to be practical jokesters BY ZACK STEEN zsteen@dailycorinthian.com

Two has always been better than one in the Mitchell family. Identical twins Kevin and Matt Mitchell have a lot in common and it shows when the two brothers are together. “Which one are you again?” asks Kevin, as a grin spreads across his face. The 41-year-olds were born in Corinth on May 31, 1973. Kevin, who is the oldest by eight minutes, rubs the age issue in his little brothers face every chance he gets. “I have always joked that I’m the original and he’s the cheap imitation,” says Kevin.

Matt fires back quickly, “but Kevin was the rough draft and I am the finished copy.” The jokes between the two about who is better go on for several minutes before Matt breaks into another story. “We get asked some of the oddest questions,” he says. “Like, are we the only child ... like, I don’t even know how to answer that.” A question Kevin likes to hear — “if you’re in trouble, does the other one know?” “I always answer, ‘yes because’, we’re almost always together when one of us gets in trouble,” says Matt. The two look the same in

many ways - they both have the same hair cut and their beard styles match. When standing beside each other, it’s definitely hard to tell the two apart. “People get us confused all the time,” Kevin says. “It happens at least once a week.” When they were toddlers, their mom would often dress them alike. “As soon as we were able to dress ourselves, we did our on thing,” Kevin says in confidence. “Nowadays we still end up showing up at church with the same color pants and shirt on. I think we just think alike,

State has 1st case of mosquito-borne virus Associated Press

JACKSON — The Mississippi State Department of Health has confirmed the first case

of chikungunya virus, a mosquito-borne illness traditionally found in Africa and Asia. State health officials

say in a news release a Mississippi resident who recently returned from

their home on fire. Greer’s bond was set at $1.2 million. Hughes was arrested Aug. 25, 2013 after the 12-year-old daughter of a rape victim at a Beechwood Circle residence called 911 while the man was there. Officers apprehended the man after he dove out a back window. DNA evidence also linked Hughes, of Belzoni, to a rape charge involving a woman at Crossroads Regional Park last August. The park rape happened on the night of Aug. 15 when two friends at the park were approached by a young man with a gun. He had the man and woman lie facedown on the ground and then had them move to an area away from the lights before committing the rape of the woman. Greer awaits trial for the deaths of the two

Copelands on Feb. 13. Their bodies were found by Corinth firemen after extinguishing the blaze at the home the brothers shared at 912 Second Street. Firemen responded to the blaze around 12:30 a.m. Both bodies were discovered in the back of the home. Greer is believed to have shot both Copelands in the head with a .410 shotgun then using accelerant found in the house to start the fire. “The quick response of both the Alcorn County Sheriff’s Department and Corinth Police Department worked well in getting them back in jail,” said Corinth Detective Capt. Ralph Dance. “We are all glad they were caught because they are two dangerous individuals.” (Staff writer Jebb Johnston contributed to this article.)

Pink Flamingo Garden Gail Stables received a colorful and plentiful birthday surprise on Thursday. A family tradition of putting pink flamingos in the yard on a relative’s birthday continued with Stables waking up to 50 of the colorful yard decorations at her home on Garden Lane.

“They overpowered a security guard and went out about 2:40 p.m.,” said Roger Settlemires, security chief of the facility. “We had Greer back in custody within an hour and Hughes later that evening.” Hughes, taken back into custody within six miles of the facility, has been incarcerated at the correctional facility after being charged for two counts of kidnapping and two counts of armed robbery. His bond was set at $100,000 per charge for a total of $500,000. Greer has been housed at the jail and faces charges on two counts of first degree murder and one count of arson after being arrested for allegedly fatally shooting brothers James and Jerry Copeland and setting

HILLANDALE CONTINUED FROM 1A

Several golfers were getting ready to play a round Friday. “The course is in great shape,” said golfer Jimmy Young, who also turned out for the first day. Course superintendent Chuck Hamm has worked hard to get the course back in shape.

“It’s been a real challenge, but something I enjoy doing,” he said. Cole said work will continue to get the course where it needs to be. “Our goal is for Hillandale to be a course available for anyone who wants to play golf,” said Cole. “The more people we get on the course, the better it will be.” A four-person scramble,

sponsored by Coca-Cola, is set to take place this morning. “It has been a busy first week,” added Cole. A chance is all Cole is asking from the community. “We hope things are a success,” he said. “We aren’t through with what we are going to do … we just want people to try us out.” Corinth businessman James Daniel now owns the

course. Daniel purchased the property some time after it closed in October of 2012. The former Hillandale Country Club was a busy community centerpiece for many years before its recent demise. In addition to golf, it offered a swimming pool, restaurant and meeting areas where civic clubs gathered and many community events were held.

Today in history Today is Tuesday, June 24, the 175th day of 2014. There are 190 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On June 24, 1964, AT&T inaugurated commercial “Picturephone” service between New York, Chicago and Washington, D.C., as Lady Bird Johnson, wife of the president, called Dr. Elizabeth A. Wood of Bell Laboratories in New York. (Requiring the use of video booths, with a 3-minute call from Washington to New York costing $16, and a $27 charge for a 3-minute call between New York and Chicago, Picturephone never caught on.)

On this date: In 1314, the forces of Scotland’s Robert the Bruce defeated the English in the Battle of Bannockburn. In 1509, Henry VIII was crowned king of England; his wife, Catherine of Aragon, was crowned queen consort. In 1908, the 22nd and 24th presidents of the United States, Grover Cleveland, died in Princeton, New Jersey, at 71. In 1939, the Southeast Asian country Siam changed its name to Thailand. (It went back to being Siam in 1945, then became Thailand once again in 1949.) In 1940, France signed an armistice with Italy during World War II. In 1948, Communist forces cut off all land and water routes between West Germany and West Berlin, prompting the western allies to organize the Berlin Airlift. In 1968, “Resurrection City,” a shantytown constructed as part of the Poor People’s March on Washington D.C., was closed down by authorities. In 1975, 113 people were killed when an Eastern Airlines Boeing 727 crashed while attempting to land during a thunderstorm at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport. In 1983, the space shuttle Challenger — carrying America’s first woman in space, Sally K. Ride — coasted to a safe landing at Edwards Air Force Base in California.

NE medical lab techician students see success in sciences competition

BY JEBB JOHNSTON jjohnston@dailycorinthian.com

A man faces a felony charge after being accused of shooting a gun into a car driven by his wife. Demarcus Allen Tipler, 22, was arrested by the Corinth Police Department on Friday and charged with domestic aggravated assault. He has an address on Little Egypt Road in Ashland but is known to stay in Corinth. Tipler posted $100,000 bond and was released. Detective Capt. Ralph Dance said Tipler was on Cemetery Street last Tuesday when he spotted his wife driving in a separate vehicle. “He stepped out into the roadway and fired several rounds into her car through the back window,” said Dance. “She was not injured.” A warrant was issued for his arrest. On Friday, police found Tipler hiding in a residence on Sixth Street. Dance said Tipler has a prior kidnapping charge locally and a prior aggravated assault charge out of Benton County. Detective Ken Edmonds is in charge of the investigation.

Strive for five. Northeast Mississippi Community College’s Medical Laboratory Technology students have a streak in place that would rival many in the professional sports world. For the fifth year in a row, Northeast’s Medical Laboratory Technology students have placed in the top two at the annual Mississippi/Louisiana American Society of Clinical Laboratory Sciences Student Bowl. Northeast streak started in 2010 as the students claimed the overall championship and then turned the trick again going undefeated en route to their second championship in a row. Northeast claimed the runner-up spot in 2012 before returning to championship form in 2013 in Alexandria, Louisiana. In 2014, the team captain

Kayla Jones Edlin of Booneville, Huong Truong of Corinth, Jan Spoon of Burnsville and Kayla Clark of Blue Springs combined to take home second place in the multi-state competition held in Biloxi. Northeast entered the finals of the 2014 event undefeated but dropped a close match in the final round of the 14-school tournament to finish as runner-ups. During the two-day competition students compete to see who is the best clinical laboratory scientist and the best clinical laboratory technician. Students compete in a double-elimination quiz bowl format for top honors. During each round, teams

participate in segments lasting up to 20 minutes that cover the areas of chemistry, hematology, microbiology, serology/immunology, immunohematology, urinalysis, coagulation, and parasitology, mycology and virology. Program instructors for the Medical Laboratory Technology degree at Northeast are Shannon Goolsby of Ripley and Rosalyn Singleton of Saltillo. Goolsby serves at the Medical Laboratory Technology Program Director while Singleton is the clinical coordinator. Goolsby and Singleton also serve as advisors for the Medical Laboratory Technology students.

Analysis: Another attempt to end schools oversight BY JACK ELLIOTT JR. Capitol Dome

JACKSON — Forty-four Mississippi schools districts — the largest number in the Southeast — remain embroiled in lawsuits seeking to end decades of federal oversight. Legal battles over school desegregation have persisted since the U.S. Supreme Court’s Brown v. Board of Education decision in 1954. In the 1960s, school districts across the South were sued and given desegregation orders, which put them under Justice Department scrutiny. President Barack Obama, on the anniversary of Brown v. Board Education, said the decision was “the first major step in dismantling the ‘separate but equal’ doctrine that justified Jim Crow,” the racial segregation laws in place at that time across the South. Justice Department documents show its civil rights division is still a party to 43 school desegregation lawsuits against school districts in Alabama, 24 in Louisiana, 5 in Tennessee, 3 in Arkansas and 35 in Georgia. Among cases in Mississippi is a request by the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to U.S. District Judge Glen Davidson to explain how the latest possible solution — a freedom-ofchoice plan he ordered — would desegregate the school system in Cleveland. The Delta city has 12,348 residents, with 50.2 percent black and 47.5 percent white. The government has claimed Davidson’s plan would not effectively desegregate two all-black schools — East Side High School and D.M. Smith Middle School. But before Davidson could issue an explanation to the April request, Cleveland school officials and the Justice Department agreed June 17 to a timetable to present another desegregation plan to Davidson by December. If approved, it would take effect in the 2015-2016 school year. The district is expected to have a proposal ready in September. If both sides agree, a consent plan could be before Davidson in early December. If there’s no agreement, the process begins again. The desegregation case dates from 1965, when plaintiffs sued the school district to end white-only and black-only schools in Cleveland. The school system has been under oversight of federal courts ever since. The district petitioned the court to remove it from federal oversight in 2011. In Cleveland, two middle schools and two high schools have co-existed for decades. One set is all black; the other, school officials say, is well-balanced for race. The complexities of resolving the longstanding dispute are many. The school district wanted to introduce magnet programs at East Side High School and D.M. Smith Middle School to attract white students from Cleveland High School and Margaret Green Jr. High School. The 5th Circuit said in April that statistics show not a single white student chose to enroll at D.M Smith or East Side High after Davidson’s order, and that over decades no white student has ever enrolled at D.M. Smith or East Side High. The 5th Circuit said firmly disagreed with a freedom-of-choice plan where such plans have “historically proven to be an ineffective desegregation tool.” In their request to Davidson for time to compromise, neither the school district nor the government mentioned the ruling. Davidson, in granting the motion, told both sides to involve parents, school personnel, community leaders and students as they worked toward a solution. He urged the government to meet with district officials to schedule a tour of the schools and share information from consultants and outside experts. Davidson said he expected the parties to “work in good faith to negotiate an agreedupon plan,” to resolve disagreements and collaborate and cooperate in the review of desegregation options. The effort now being made appears to have all parties believing after 50 years that a solution is nearing. (Daily Corinthian columnist Jack Elliott Jr. is a writer for the Associated Press based in Jackson.)

Prayer for today Gracious Father, keep within me that cheer and courage which never has a place for weary murmurings; and with peace make the hours of solitude profitable as they pass. Help me to seek those who are in need of sympathy and encouragement, that I may help them to have a tranquil life. Amen.

A verse to share “For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him.” Isaiah 64:4

A lame duck country? Pundits are pointing to President Barack Obama’s recent decline in public opinion polls, and saying that he may now become another “lame duck” president, unable to accomplish much during his final term in office. That has happened to other presidents. But it is extremely unlikely to happen to this president. There are reasons why other presidents have become impotent during their last years in office. But those reasons do not apply to Barack Obama. The Constitution of the United States does not give presidents the power to carry out major policy changes without the cooperation of other branches of government. Once the country becomes disenchanted with a president during his second term, Congress has little incentive to cooperate with him -- and, once Congress becomes uncooperative, there is little that a president can do on his own. That is, if he respects the Constitution. President Obama has demonstrated, time and again, that he has no respect for the Constitution’s limitations on his power. Despite his oath of office, to see that the laws are faithfully executed, Barack Obama

has unilaterally changed welfare reform laws, by eliminating the work requirement Thomas passed by Sowell C o n g r e s s during the Columnist Clinton administration. He has repeatedly and unilaterally changed or waived provisions of the ObamaCare law passed by Congress during his own administration. President Obama has ordered Border Patrol agents not to carry out provisions of the immigration laws that he does not like. We see the results today in the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants entering the country unimpeded. President Obama’s oath of office obviously means no more to him than his oftrepeated promise that “you can keep your own doctor” under ObamaCare. Why do we have a Constitution of the United States if a president can ignore it without any consequences? The Constitution cannot protect our rights if we do not protect the Constitution. Freedom is not free, and the Constitution is just some words on paper if we

do not do anything to those who violate it. What can ordinary citizens do? Everything! Theirs is the ultimate power of the ballot that can bring down even the most powerful elected official. The most important thing the voters can do is vote against anyone who violates the Constitution. When someone who has violated the Constitution repeatedly gets re-elected, then the voters are accomplices in the erosion of protection for their own freedom. Laws without penalties are just suggestions -- and suggestions are a pitiful defense against power. After voters have failed to protect the Constitution, the last-ditch remedy is impeachment. But Barack Obama knows that he is not going to be impeached. Who wants to provoke a Constitutional crisis and riots in the streets? And, worst of all, end up with Joe Biden as President of the United States? Some cynics long ago referred to Barack Obama’s choice of mental lightweight Biden to be his vice president as “impeachment insurance.” With neither the Constitution, nor the voters, nor the threat of impeachment to stop him, Barack Obama

has clear sailing to use his powers however he chooses. Far from seeing his power diminish in his last years, President Obama can extend his power even beyond the end of his administration by appointing federal judges who share his disregard of the Constitution and can enact his far-left agenda into law from the bench, when it cannot be enacted into law by the Congress. Federal judges with lifetime tenure can make irreversible decisions binding future presidents and future Congresses. If Republicans do not win control of the Senate in this fall’s elections, a Senate controlled by Majority Leader Harry Reid can confirm judges who will have the power to extend Barack Obama’s agenda and complete the dismantling of Constitutional government. Barack Obama can, as he said before taking office, fundamentally “change the United States of America.” Far from being a lame duck president, Obama can make this a lame duck democracy.

Hail to the Redskins! The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s contribution to the Washington Redskins debate is pettifogging absurdity in the service of rank politically correct bullying. A panel of the office’s Trademark Trial and Appeal Board ruled in favor of plaintiffs claiming that the Redskins name “may disparage persons or bring them into contempt, or disrepute,” and therefore stripped the team of six trademarks. The decision has been celebrated by people who can’t tell the difference between Redskins team owner Dan Snyder and Andrew Jackson as a sharp blow for social justice in team nicknames. Exercising his constitutional power as arbiter of tastefulness in sports, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid rallied almost all of his Democratic colleagues a few months ago to implore the NFL to change the offending name, and hailed the patent ruling as the beginning of the end of the profound historical injustice perpetrated by

the football franchise that dare not speak its name. The dispute over Rich the RedLowry skins is the Jarndyce National v. Jarndyce Review of the NFL, or in patent lingo, “football exhibitions rendered in stadia.” Certainly, opinions differ about the appropriateness of “Redskins” as a nickname. But some perspective: There is no time in American history when Native Americans have been held in higher regard. The existence of a professional football franchise with the same name that it has had for the past 80 years -- no matter how anachronistic – has self-evidently not caused Native Americans to be held in contempt and disrepute. The piece de resistance of the patent ruling is the cancellation of the trademark for the Redskinettes for “entertainment services,

namely, cheerleaders who perform dance routines at professional football games and exhibitions and other personal appearances.” Was there ever a time when female Native Americans were called Redskinettes, disparagingly or otherwise? Are we supposed to believe that the self-esteem of proud Native American tribes depends on the fate of the Redskinettes trademark? The Washington Post called the patent decision “a victory for tolerance.” A bureaucratic body seeking to harm a sports team because some people don’t like its nickname is a strange exercise in tolerance. The paper went on to note that the tide is running against the Redskins since so many people have spoken out against them, “including the president of the United States and half of the United States Senate, which controls the tax breaks enjoyed by the NFL.” Get it? It would be too bad if something happened to your nice football league. How tolerant. In a section establishing the standing of the anti-

Redskins petitioners, the patent panel made it clear they have no direct interest except that they are offended. Fine. Don’t be Redskins fans. Root for the Cowboys or the Giants, the team’s NFC East rivals. Never go to FedExField. Don’t buy Redskins paraphernalia. If you must support a Washington sports team, make it one with a nickname so thoroughly anodyne that even the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office approves – the Major League Soccer team, D.C. United. But in the 21st century, this isn’t the American way. If something offends you, it must be crusaded against and crushed underfoot, using whatever instrument of power is available. That the franchise is holding firm against this assault is reason to say a hearty “Hail to the Redskins!” – while we still can.

Congressman holds GOP’s No. 2 post WASHINGTON — Some conservatives are skittish about having a new House majority leader from left-leaning California. Rep. Charles Boustany, R-La., acknowledged that his constituents were “probably scratching their head” when it came to Rep. Kevin McCarthy’s election Thursday, but he understands McCarthy represents a conservative district. Adding to the unease is that the House’s top Democrat, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, also is from California. “I don’t think you’ll have to worry about the two of them working together too much,” countered Rep. John Fleming, R-La. McCarthy’s Bakersfield-focused district is much more conservative than the rest of the state. Among registered voters, Republicans outnumber Democrats there by a 16-percentage-point margin. In the 2012 presidential election, Mitt Romney took almost 57 percent of the vote. The Republican tendencies reflect a region that relies on agriculture and oil production. Fleming said the California connection played into his lobbying efforts to get colleagues to vote for Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., to succeed McCarthy in the No. 3 job, majority whip. “We’ve been gradually becoming South-centric in terms of that’s where the red states are. Yet our leadership is primar-

Obama: Threat from militants may grow WASHINGTON — AlQaida-inspired militants who have violently seized territory in Iraq could grow in power and destabilize other countries in the region, President Barack Obama said. The Iraqi public will ultimately reject the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, the extremist Sunni group threatening Iraq’s government, but the group still represents a medium- and long-term threat to the United States, Obama said. “We’re going to have to be vigilant generally. Right now the problem with ISIS is the fact that they’re destabilizing the country,” Obama said, using a common acronym for the group. “That could spill over into some of our allies like Jordan.” The Sunni insurgency in Iraq and neighboring Syria is just one of an array of threats the U.S. must guard against, Obama said in an interview recorded Friday and airing Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” He pointed to the group Boko Haram in north Africa and al-Qaida groups in Yemen that he said also demand the attention of the U.S. and its partners. “What we can’t do is think that we’re just go-

ing to play whack-a-mole and send U.S. troops occupying various countries wherever these organizations pop up,” Obama said. “We’re going to have to have a more focused, more targeted strategy and we’re going to have to partner and train local law enforcement and military to do their jobs as well.”

Report: Politics had no role in PSU probe HARRISBURG, Pa. — A report released Monday detailing the handling of the Jerry Sandusky child molestation case faults police and prosecutors for long delays in bringing charges but found no evidence that politics affected the investigation into the former Penn State assistant football coach. The report, commissioned by Attorney General Kathleen Kane and written by former federal prosecutor Geoff Moulton, blamed a three-year lapse in filing charges on communication problems, an expungement of a 1998 complaint about Sandusky and a failure to take certain investigative steps early on. “The facts show an inexcusable lack of urgency in charging and stopping a serial sexual predator,” said Kane, a Democrat who had vowed to conduct a review of the investigation while running for office. “The report documents that more investigative work took place in just one month in 2011 than in all of either 2009 or 2010.”

Casino revenues dip sharply in May JACKSON — Casinos across Mississippi saw big drops in revenue in May, dipping by 10.6 percent compared to the year before. Mississippi Department of Revenue figures show casinos statewide won $172 million from gamblers in May, down from $192 million May 2013. The 12 coastal casinos won $84.3 million, down 11 percent from May 2013. The 18 river casinos won $87.5 million, down 10 percent from a year earlier. It’s the 21st month out of the last 23 that Mississippi casinos have won less money from gamblers compared to the same month of the previous year. June could see even sharper drops in the river region, with Caesars Entertainment Corp. closing its Harrah’s casino in Tunica County on June 2. About 1,000 workers lost their jobs in the shutdown, which left Caesars with two smaller casinos in the struggling eight-casino market. The numbers exclude Choctaw Indian casinos, which aren’t required to report winnings to the state. Revenue at Gulf casinos is down 2 percent over the last 12 months, reflecting a pattern where winnings have actually risen in a few months and have been flat in some others. The river casinos have seen revenues fall 7 percent over the last 12 months, where Tunica and Lula casinos have suffered in part from competition

from expanding gambling at two racetracks in Arkansas.

Cochran, Rangel try to survive primaries JACKSON — Two of the longest-serving members of Congress face primary elections Tuesday that could end their political careers. Six-term Mississippi Sen. Thad Cochran needs a comeback in a Republican runoff after trailing tea party-backed challenger Chris McDaniel in a June 3 primary. With more than $12 million in outside spending, the election has become the latest focus for the national battle between traditional Republican powers and conservative insurgents. Race is an issue, too, as tea partyers try to monitor how many Democrats — particularly black voters — cast ballots in the GOP runoff. Race also is an issue in New York, where Democratic Rep. Charles Rangel, one of the most

recognizable members of the Congressional Black Caucus, faces multiple challengers in his primary as he aims for a 23rd term representing demographically shifting areas of New York City. In all, there are elections Tuesday in seven states. Colorado and Maryland will pick candidates for governor. Republicans in Oklahoma will choose a nominee who will be favored to succeed retiring Sen. Tom Coburn. Utah has legislative primaries, and in South Carolina there is a Republican runoff for lieutenant governor. But it’s Cochran and Rangel who have drawn the most attention. Both races feature aging lawmakers — Cochran is 76, Rangel is 84 — battling younger competitors in a midterm election year marked by widespread voter discontent with Congress and the nation’s overall direction. In both cases, the primary winners will be heavy favorites in November.

The Unchanging Gospel “I marvel that you are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel; which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” - Gal. 1:6-8 Man is constantly looking for change. And we see it in the styles of dress, transportation, in government --in fact, in every realm of society. Some of that change is for the better. But there are some areas where change is not within the bounds of man’s rights. In the religious world a great cry for change is being sounded, “Make it relevant,” “Racial injustice must be preached,” and “Preach about stamping out poverty and all wars” are some of the cries being heard. But what is this “changeless gospel” Paul wrote about, and what is its message? What kind of change is necessary, or permissible? God Has Not Changed God is just. The apostle declares that He is “just, and the justifier of him that hath faith in Jesus.” (Rom. 3:26). And we read in Heb. 6:18, “It is impossible for God to lie.” God will be true though every man be a liar. What God has said, He will do. “He is faithful that promised. “When you read that God will judge the world, believe it. - for God is just, and He will do as He said. God is good. This goodness is shown in the fact He made man in His own image; that when man sinned, God made provision for his salvation: “For God so loved the world He gave His only begotten Son....” It is the goodness of God that leads the rebellious sinner to repentance (Rom. 2:4). The God who placed us here, gave His Son to die for our sings; and He doesn’t want any of us to be lost (1 Tim. 2:4). The constant care He gives and the blessings He bestows all speak of God’s goodness. Surely we would not want to change that! James wrote, “Every good gift, and every perfect gift, cometh down from above, from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow that is cast by turning.” (Jas. 1:17). God does not change. I urge you to abandon that which is worthless and flee to that ark of God wherein is salvation and the hope of eternal life. Christ adds to his church all who are being saved (Acts 2:42; Eph. 5:23). To be added to the membership of a denomination is another thing altogether. Flee that whose foundation is on shifting sand. When he returns, Christ will present only his church to the Father (I Cor. 15:24). That is the body every thinking person should want to be a part of! You are welcomed at Northside!

Biggersville leader brags on fire and rescue team BY KIMBERLY SHELTON

Unsung hero

kshelton@dailycorinthian.com

How do you define a hero? This was the question which plagued Jeff Allen’s mind after learning he had been deemed a local unsung hero. “When I think of the word hero, I think about the brave men and women who ran into the twin towers without hesitation during 9-11 and the brave passengers of United Airlines Flight 23 who gave their lives to take down the aircraft. We have people in our community who die overseas fighting for our country and who pull people from burning buildings. Those are the real heroes,” said the chief of Biggersville Fire and Rescue. “I don’t see myself as a hero. I never have and I never will. I do this because I want to do this. I’m not looking for a reward. Anytime we can go to a scene and all come back safely is reward enough. Allen said joining the fire service was an easy decision. “I wanted to give back to the community. I love helping people anyway I can,” said the chief. “Everyone has a purpose in life. I think I’ve found my purpose here.” Allen started out pulling hoses and eventually went on to lead others. “I started in 1998 and have never regretted it. I have been doing this for 16 years now. I was inactive for a couple of years to stay at home with our daughter who we adopted in 2004, on the weekends,” said Allen, who oversees 23 members at two stations. “I’ve got a good group of folks. When you have a good group of folks, life and work is a whole lot easier.”

Biggersville Fire and Rescue Chief Jeff Allen checks the air packs on the fire truck. While only a part-time job, working at the station can seem like a fulltime career. “They make it a lot easier to divide up the responsibilities,” said Allen, who is proud of his team. “I know I can call on anyone of them to help out and it will get done.” He identified training new volunteers as his biggest challenge. “A lot of new recruits come in gung-ho. It can sometimes be difficult to settle them down and get them to the level they need to be,” said Allen. “You can be too gung-ho and get yourself or someone else hurt. Luckily, I really have not had that issue here.” Before becoming a firefighter, Allen was an operations specialist in the U.S. Navy, serving from 1993 to 1997 aboard the U.S.S. Thorn and a Military Policeman (MP) and Cavalry Scout in the Mississippi Army National Guard. In addition to working with Biggersville Fire and Rescue, Allen has been a programmer at CM solutions for around 10 years now and also serves as a freelance

photographer for the Daily Corinthian. The 1987 Biggersville High School graduate holds two Associate of Arts degrees, one in electronics and the other in auto cadd from Northeast Mississippi Community College. He is currently pursuing an online elementary education degree through Mississippi State. “My goal is to be able to teach history at a college level,” he said. When not at work or hitting the books, the Biggersville native enjoys spending time with his wife, Bea, who also works for the fire station. The couple will be sworn in with the State Guard next month. “She’s my best friend,” Allen said. “I know that sounds corny, but she really is.” The 44-year-old is the father of Nicole Allen and the stepfather of William and Phillip Hutchinson. In his spare time, he enjoys fishing, metal detecting, hunting arrowheads and watching football. “I love the Mississippi State bulldogs. Go Dawgs!” said the avid MSU fan.

vide those things that people like,” said Mayor Tommy Irwin, who drove the deal. Purchased from Donald Bumpass, the land includes five parcels ranging from 0.464 acres in size to 1.464 acres that are situated somewhat in the middle of other available

property. It is described as behind the tennis courts area, and it extends south to adjoin two parcels bordering Droke Road that the city acquired during the project to upgrade Droke Road for the elementary school. The county agreed to join the city in the purchase for the jointly owned park.

“It is a real nice addition to the park property,” said Board of Supervisors President Lowell Hinton. “We thought while we are into the park expansion it would be a good time to go ahead and purchase the property and do the work that is necessary to get it prepared for expansion now or in the future.” Whether or not it is used

for new amenities with the upcoming expansion, he expects the wooded area will be cleared and grubbed, providing more attractive surroundings for the park. New ball fields and restrooms are envisioned for the park expansion, but Hinton said it’s all going to depend on the available funding, which is currently in development.

Stock market slips below records; FMC falls BY STEVE ROTHWELL Associated Press

NEW YORK — Stocks fell for the first time in seven days, ending a run that had pushed the indexes to all-time highs, as investors assessed corporate news. Chemical company FMC fell the most in the Standard & Poor’s 500 index after cutting its earnings forecast for the second quarter due because its Agricultural Solutions unit performed worse than expected in the period. General Electric and Wisconsin Energy both dropped after announcing acquisitions. The stock market has climbed steadily in the last two months amid signs that the economy has recovered its momentum

after being disrupted by an unusually harsh winter. Stronger growth should translate into higher corporate profits. “The market has had a good run and it needs to pause,” said Peter Cardillo, chief market economist at Rockwell Global Capital. The S&P 500 fell a fraction of a point, or less than 0.1 percent, to 1,962.61. The index closed at a record 1,962.87 on Friday. The Dow Jones industrial average dropped 9.82 points, or less than 0.1 percent, to 16,937.26. The Nasdaq composite index edged up 0.64 point, or less than 0.01 percent, to 4,368.68. FMC dropped $3.65, or 4.9 percent, to $71.10 after the company lowered its earnings forecast for the second-quar-

IRS commissioner: No obstruction of Congress in probe BY STEPHEN OHLEMACHER Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The head of the IRS said Monday his agency has provided Congress with hundreds of thousands of documents, brushing aside accusations that the IRS has obstructed investigations into the targeting of tea party and other political groups before the 2010 and 2012 elections. Commissioner John Koskinen was appearing at a rare evening hearing on Capitol Hill to answer questions about lost emails by a key figure in the probe. Koskinen told the House Oversight Committee in prepared testimony that congressional investigators were informed months ago that Lois Lerner had computer problems back in 2011. Koskinen said emails provided to the committee last fall showed that Lerner’s computer had crashed. The emails indicate that Lerner had lost some data, though they don’t explicitly say that Lerner’s emails were lost. They were provided to congressional investigators as part of the tea party investigation. “So it should be clear that no one has been keeping this information from Congress,” Koskinen said in prepared testimony. The IRS in 2011 lost an untold number of emails to and from Lerner. She is the former head of the division that processes applications for tax-exempt status. The Oversight Committee is investigating the handling of applications from tea party and other political groups. Koskinen said the IRS inspector general is inves-

tigating the lost emails. “It is not unusual for computers anywhere to fail, especially at the IRS in light of the aged equipment IRS employees often have to use in light of the continual cuts in its budget these past four years,” Koskinen said. “Since Jan. 1 of this year, for example, over 2,000 employees have suffered hard drive crashes.” Ahead of the hearing, committee Chairman Darrell Issa asked Koskinen to address a series of technical questions about the agency’s email system and its policy for retaining official documents. The title of the hearing suggests that Issa, R-Calif., already has reached some conclusions. The hearing is called, “IRS Obstruction: Lois Lerner’s Missing Emails.” Instead of an invitation, Issa, R-Calif., subpoenaed Koskinen to testify. “I will not tolerate your continued obstruction and game-playing in response to the committee’s investigation of the IRS targeting,” Issa wrote to Koskinen. “For too long, the IRS has promised to produce requested — and later subpoenaed — documents, only to respond later with excuses and inaction.” “Despite your empty promises and broken commitments to cooperation, the IRS still insists on flouting Constitutional congressional oversight,” Issa said. Koskinen had a long record of government service before taking over as head of the IRS at the start of the year. He served in different positions under Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, and worked for the District of Columbia.

ter, saying that the impact of the cold winter had been much stronger than it had originally anticipated. Investors were also watching deal news that produced both winners and losers. General Electric dropped 29 cents, or 1.1 percent, to $26.68 after agreeing to acquire most of the power generation business belonging to Alstom, a French company. Wisconsin Energy fell $1.62, or 3.5 percent, to $45.27 after the company said that it was buying Integrys Energy for $5.8 billion. Intergrys was among the winners. The company’s stock jumped $7.40, or 12.1 percent, to $68.35 on the news. Micros Systems also gained

on deal news. The software company’s stock rose $2.21, or 3.4 percent, to $67.98 after Oracle said it was buying the company for about $5.3 billion. The stock market may be heading for a summer lull after its latest record-setting run, as investors wait for more confirmation that the economic outlook is improving, said Scott Wren, a senior equity strategist at Wells Fargo Advisors. The S&P 500 is up 6.2 percent for the year after trading mostly sideways for the first three months of the year. “After the big run we’ve had over the past couple of months, a week or two of consolidation isn’t anything out of the ordinary,” said Wren. In government bond trading,

prices edged lower. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note, which moves in the opposite direction to its price, rose to 2.62 percent. The price of oil fell 66 cents, or 0.6 percent, to $106.17 a barrel. Among other stocks making big moves: Lululemon rose $1.02, or 2.5 percent, to $41.25 after The Wall Street Journal reported that the company’s founder was working with Goldman Sachs to shake up the yoga clothing company’s board. Lululemon’s stock is down 30 percent this year as the company works on improving its business since pulling one of its popular yoga pants from stores last spring because they were too sheer.

US hinterlands woo Chinese firms BY PAUL WISEMAN Associated Press

PINE HILL, Ala. — Burdened with Alabama’s highest unemployment rate, long abandoned by textile mills and furniture plants, Wilcox County desperately needs jobs. They’re coming, and from a most unlikely place: Henan Province, China, 7,600 miles away. Henan’s Golden Dragon Precise Copper Tube Group opened a plant here last month. It will employ more than 300 in a county known less for job opportunities than for lakes filled with bass, pine forests rich with wild turkey and boar and muddy roads best negotiated in four-wheel-drive trucks. “Jobs that pay $15 an hour are few and far between,” says Dottie Gaston, an official in nearby Thomasville. What’s happening in Pine Hill is starting to happen across America. After decades of siphoning jobs from the United States, China is creating some. Chinese companies invested a record $14 billion in the United States last year, according to the Rhodium Group research firm. Collectively, they employ more than 70,000 Americans, up from virtually none a decade ago. Powerful forces — narrowing wage gaps, tumbling U.S. energy prices, the vagaries of currency markets — are pulling Chinese companies across the Pacific. Mayors and economic development officials have lined up to welcome Chinese investors. Southern states, touting low labor and land costs, have been especially aggressive. In the case of the Pine Hill plant,

tax breaks, some Southern hospitality and a tray of homemade banana pudding helped, too. “Get off the plane and the mayor is waiting for you,” says Hong Kong billionaire Ronnie Chan. In March, Dothan, Alabama, held a two-day U.S.-China manufacturing symposium, drawing dozens of potential Chinese investors. On sale were T-shirts reading: “Ni hao, y’all” — combining the Chinese version of “hello” with a colloquial Southernism. Chinese executives wandered around during a street festival, experiencing Americana by snapping photos of vintage ‘60s muscle cars. A Chinese company, in a deal negotiated before the symposium, announced it would bring a 3D printing operation to Dothan. Among other Chinese projects in the United States that are creating jobs: — In Moraine, Ohio, Chinese glassmaker Fuyao Glass Industry Group Co. is taking over a plant that General Motors abandoned in 2008 and creating at least 800 jobs. The site puts Fuyao within four hours’ drive of auto plants in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. — In Lancaster County, South Carolina, Chinese textile manufacturer Keer Group is investing $218 million in a plant to make industrial yarn and will employ 500. South Carolina nudged the deal along with a $4 million grant. — In Gregory, Texas, Tianjin Pipe is investing over $1 billion in a factory that makes pipes for oil and gas drillers. The company expects to begin production late this year or

early in 2015. It will have 50 to 70 employees by the end of this year and 400 to 500 by the end of 2017. The United States and China have long maintained a lop-sided relationship: China makes things. America buys them. The U.S. trade deficit in goods with China last year hit a record $318 billion. And for three decades, numerous U.S. manufacturers have moved operations to China. The flow is at least starting to move the other way. One reason is that in the past decade, the cost of labor, adjusted for productivity gains, has surged 187 percent at Chinese factories, compared with just 27 percent in the United States, according to Boston Consulting Group. In addition, Chinese electricity costs rose 66 percent, more than twice the United States’ increase. The start of large-scale U.S. shale gas production has helped contain U.S. electricity costs. And the value of China’s currency has risen more than 30 percent against the U.S. dollar over the past decade. The higher yuan has raised the cost of Chinese goods sold abroad and, conversely, made U.S. goods more affordable in China. Those rising costs have cut China’s competitive edge. In 2004, manufacturing cost 14 percent less in China than in the United States; that advantage has narrowed to 5 percent. If the trend toward higher wages, energy costs and a higher currency continues, Boston Consulting predicts, U.S. manufacturing will be less expensive than China’s by 2018.

Sales of existing homes up 4.9 percent in May BY MARTIN CRUTSINGER Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Sales of previously owned U.S. homes posted the best monthly gain in nearly three years in May, providing hope that housing is beginning to regain momentum lost over the past year. The National Association of Realtors reported Monday that sales of existing homes increased 4.9 percent last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.89 million homes. The monthly gain was the fastest since August 2011, but even with the increase, sales are still 5 percent below the pace in May 2013. “Sales appear to be moving up again, although the increase to date — over two months — reverses just a fraction of earlier weakening,” Jim O’Sullivan, chief U.S. economist at High Frequency Economics, said in a research note. Sales had been dampened by last year’s rise in mortgage rates from historic lows and various other factors including tight supplies and tougher lending standards. The median price of a home sold in May was $213,400, up 5.1 percent from a year ago. By region of the coun-

try, sales were up the most in May in the Midwest, an 8.7 percent gain which likely reflected further catch-up from the severe winter. Sales rose 5.7 percent in the South and 3.3 percent in the Northeast but showed only a slight 0.9 percent increase in the West. The number of firsttime buyers remained stuck near record lows at just 27 percent of sales in May, down from 29 percent in April. Analysts expressed concerns about the scarcity of first-time buyers, who historically have made up around 40 percent of the market. “The existing home sales market can only retain its strength for so long if move-up buyers cannot find a firsttime buyer to purchase their starter homes,” said Stephanie Karol, an economist at Global Insight. The level of distressed sales — either foreclosures or short-sales in which the homeowner has to sell for less than the value of the mortgage — declined to 11 percent of all sales in May, an improvement from 18 percent of all sales a year ago. After hitting a recent peak of 5.38 million sales at an annual rate last July, sales started sliding. Potential buyers have been grappling with a limited

supply of houses, more expensive homes and lending standards which have been tightened in response to the housing boom of the past decade which resulted in millions of houses going into foreclosure. Five years into the recovery from a deep recession that was triggered in part by the collapse in housing, housing sales have yet to return to their historic averages. Demand remains strong for the most expensive homes but has faltered for starter homes and those priced for middle class buyers. The pace of home sales is below the 5.1 million homes sold in 2013 and off the pace of 5.5 million annual sales that would be consistent with a healthy housing market. Lawrence Yun, chief economist for the Realtors, said because of the weaker start to sales this year, he expects that sales for the entire year will be down 3.1 percent this year to 4.9 million, compared with 5.1 million sales of existing homes in 2013, which had been a 9.2 percent rise from 2012. Yun said he was predicting a stronger second half for sales this year but he said that would not be enough to compensate for the weakness at the start

of this year, a slowdown that reflected in part a harsh winter. Sales of existing homes began to slow in the second half of 2013 as mortgage rates crept up from historic lows, but home prices continued to rise due to a lack of available homes for sale. Average rates for 30year fixed-rate mortgages declined to 4.17 percent last week, down from 4.20 percent the previous week. Mortgage rates are about a quarter of a percentage point higher than they were at the same time last year. Yun forecast that mortgage rates will be rising at the end of this year as the Federal Reserve moves closer to starting to boost interest rates. He forecast rates would average 4.9 percent in the last three months of this year and 5 percent in the first quarter of 2015. The total inventory of homes for sale at the end of May climbed 2.2 percent to 2.28 million homes, which represents a 5.6-month supply at the May sales pace. Inventory is 6 percent higher than a year ago, which analysts said should help to slow price gains and boost sales by giving would-be buyers more homes to choose from.

McDaniel, Cochran rally on coast before vote BY PAUL HAMPTON The Sun Herald

(Editor’s Note: Both candidates were in Alcorn County just days before the election. Chris McDaniel was at the Generals’ Quarters Friday evening for a meet and greet, while local supporters hosted a free fish fry for Thad Cochran Saturday evening at the Circle Y.) The Republican candidates for U.S. Senate, just days out from today’s runoff, held spirited rallies in what is likely their final Gulf Coast appearances of the campaign. Chris McDaniel urged his backers to “storm those walls” by voting for him and turning longtime Sen. Thad Cochran out of office. Cochran asked his supporters at GulfportBiloxi International Airport to insure the election is held fairly and freely and return a “resounding victory for our party, our country and our hopes and dreams for our future.” That seemed to be a

“ ... You have to consider your options. What’s best for your state. What’s best for your community.” Gary Fredericks response to accusations from his opponents that his supporters were enticing Democrats to vote in the runoff even though they had no intentions of voting for the Republican winner in the general election against Democratic nominee Travis Childers of Booneville. Gary Fredericks was among the Democrats in the crowd supporting Cochran. “You have to think outside the box,” said the nephew of longtime state Reps. Frances and Isiah Fredericks of Gulf-

port. “You can’t just say I’m a Democrat or I’m a Republican. You have to consider your options. What’s best for your state. What’s best for your community.” Earlier, with former game show host Chuck Woolery, several talk radio hosts and a Branson music act onboard, the Tea Party Express came to Biloxi for a rally on a Hobby Lobby Parking lot. Cochran’s supporters gathered at the airport in hopes of hearing Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., but his flight had mechanical problems in Texas and was delayed. McCain is expected to appear Monday in Jackson with Cochran. Gulfport Mayor Billy Hewes and Rep. Steven Palazzo filled in for McCain, praising Cochran’s accomplishments in getting contracts for Ingalls Shipbuilding, supporting the military and helping the state recover from Katrina. Both the Cochran and McDaniel camps piled on Democratic Sen-

ate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who has been a favorite foil when the opponents aren’t criticizing one another. McDaniel argues that Cochran is trying to scare voters by saying McDaniel will cost jobs in Ingalls and will cost the state seniority and clout in Washington. “Don’t fall for the fear tactics,” McDaniel told his supporters. But, the Tea Party Express speakers who preceded him had plenty of fears of their own. For instance, Wayne Allyn Root, a talk show host and 2008 Libertarian vice presidential candidate, said, referring to President Barack Obama, “Our nation is being run by the Manchurian Candidate.” Lars Larson said he thought Obama should be impeached. “There’s a new world order coming to your town,” sang the Rivoli Review. Cochran spokesman Jordan Russell said the

incumbent’s campaign wasn’t trying to scare anyone, it was merely pointing out the differences on the issues. “Senator McDaniel is free to air his views, but he shouldn’t be surprised when we point out the flaws,” Russell said. “If you’re against federal funding for education because you believe it’s unconstitutional, we’re going to point that out. If you’re against Katrina relief, we’re going to point that out.” McDaniel insists being against the Department of Education wouldn’t cut education funding although that funding now comes through that department. Former “Love Connection” host Chuck Woolery, who was on the Tea Party Express bus in Biloxi, said he just wants what’s best for the entire country. “I believe we need to get rid of some of these older guys who have been in Congress for years and years and years making a living off the taxpayer

dollars and being professional politicians,” he said. “We need some people to come in and not think about themselves but start thinking about the states and the country.” Woolery said even though he isn’t from Mississippi, a senator from Mississippi’s votes affect him in Texas because he pays federal taxes. Neither candidate broke any new ground two days from the Tuesday election. McDaniel said he would fight to repeal Obamacare, wouldn’t cut education funding and wouldn’t balance the budget on the backs of the military. But he would back term limits and an end to the income tax. “It’s time for a balanced budget amendment,” he said. “It’s time to scrap the existing tax code and come back with something fair and flat.” Cochran just remained congenial, asking for voters’ support and thanking them for their support in the past.

Are you the victor or victim? It’s always your choice Do you conquer problems or do they conquer you? It’s attitude that determines whether you are a victor or a victim. Your age, education, financial status, or social standing don’t matter. There are victors and victims from every background. Victors are not special. They are not better than others. Victors know “they can” whereas victims are convinced “they can’t.” Whether you are a victor or victim is up to you. However, victims argue this is not the case. They claim they have no control over their circumstances. They believe some people are luckier than others or have more fortunate situations. A victim will point out that there’s nothing they can do to improve their situation. Victors don’t make excuses. They don’t complain. Victors look at whatever problems are before them and then seek solutions. They work with what they have and start from where they are. Victors understand they have the ability to take control of their destiny. You can choose to be a victor even if you are used to being a victim. Start with your self-perception. Visualize yourself as a victor, overcoming any obstacles you encounter. Don’t worry about not having an immediate solution. With a victor’s mindset, you will discover the answers you need. As a victor, you are not susceptible to naysayers who provide you with a litany of reasons why you

won’t succeed. As a victor, you are immune to ridicule. You don’t Bryan have a need Golden to convince anyone Dare to Live of your Without Limits chances for success. Instead, you simply stay focused on achieving your goal. Victors know every problem has a solution and they are determined to find it. They look at problems from every angle. They break problems

down to simplify them. They consider all possible solutions. You are a victor when you automatically think, “I can,” rather than, “I can’t.” You purge your self-talk of negatives. You never discourage yourself with a constant barrage of pessimistic thoughts. As a victor, you understand that anything is possible. Within you lies the power to achieve your dreams. You have more potential than you realize. Any limits you feel are self-imposed. For you, failure is not an option. You know that failure only occurs when

you give up. Setbacks are normal, providing an opportunity to grow. You learn from your mistakes rather than becoming discouraged. Victors are always honest, ethical, and moral. They don’t take advantage of or cause harm to anyone. Victors harness the power of attraction. They treat others with kindness, respect, and consideration. A victor’s success is not at the expense of someone else. Being a victor is not selfish nor does it cause other people to suffer. There’s no reason to be jealous of a victor.

Anyone and everyone can achieve that status. As you know, time goes by too fast. Being a victor enables you to get the most out of life. Too many people fail to live their dreams because they think and act like victims. The only thing stopping you is yourself. If you don’t feel like a victor, objectively assess your thoughts and actions. Identify those areas which need adjustment. When things have consistently not been going your way, look in the mirror to determine the role you are playing. The past is over. What’s important

is the course you will take from today forward. Life is about making choices. It’s up to you to decide whether you will be a victor or a victim. The path you follow is up to you. No one else can or should pick it for you. Be determined to think and act like a victor from this moment on.

Coming Up In The Daily Corinthian Our family of quality magazines continues in the Saturday newspaper with the presentation of Crossroads Magazine Bridal Edition.

Bored and lonely teen should find hobby to fill her free time D E A R ABBY: My 19-year-old sister died two years ago from an overdose. I’m 13. We were Abigail very Van Buren when close we were little, Dear Abby but during the four years before she passed away, my parents didn’t want us around each other for fear of her rubbing off on me, and she wasn’t home half the time anyway. A year earlier she went to rehab, and I remember talking with her about how she was clean for good and then ... It’s just so lonely! All my friends have sisters and brothers and I don’t, and I’m bored all the time. My parents work a lot, so I’m home alone at least three times a week, and although I’ve got friends and sports, I’m just really alone. It’s awkward going out to dinner or going on vacation because my parents just want to sit and relax, and I want to go out and do things, but it’s embarrassing going everywhere with your parents.

I miss having her around. -ALONE IN OHIO DEAR ALONE: Please accept my sympathy for the loss of your sister. You are still grieving, which is why you say you feel alone. However, if you think about it, because of her addiction, she has been out of your life for longer than two years. It may be that what you’re really mourning is the relationship you MIGHT have had. You say you have friends. If you listen to them talk, you may find that they, too, sometimes feel alone even if they have siblings. Many teenagers have told me this. Because you’re bored when you’re not with your friends or participating in sports, consider finding a hobby that will fill your time when your parents are working, or do some volunteering if they agree. You might also consider adopting a pet from a shelter to keep you company. Of course, pets require feeding, training, affection and exercise, but in return they offer unconditional love and companionship. If it would be all right with your parents, it might be a solution for you.

DEAR ABBY: I met a guy online. We have been dating for some time now. We have a wonderful connection and have our dates on Skype. The problem is, we have never met in person. Every time we plan on meeting, he shuts up for a time, isn’t reachable, then suddenly reappears and makes excuses, asking me to forgive him and plan another meeting. Should I still believe this will happen anytime soon? -- LEFT HANGING IN NAIROBI DEAR LEFT HANGING: I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings, but something smells fishy here. “Catfishy.” From where I sit, it appears your wonderful connection may be only your connection to the Internet. A person who does this repeatedly may not be who he has represented himself to be. Do not count on him for ANYthing. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Horoscopes ARIES (March 21-April 19). Stick close to your moral center, as there will be those around you who veer off. It’s better to make someone mad by doing what’s right than to make them happy by doing what’s wrong. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). No music? Start the dance anyway and let the music catch up. In other words, don’t wait around for the good time to start. It starts when you decide it does. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). As waitstaff the world over can attest, hungry people are meaner than satisfied people. It’s hard to be patient when you don’t have what you need. But this is the patience that defines stellar character. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Boring people are usually bored. Interesting people are usually interested. You fall in the last category and should be careful to seek the same from your companions.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). As the saying goes, choose your battles. Note that the saying does not suggest that you choose only large battles. Some of the small battles well fought will prevent the large ones from occurring. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There are so many reasons to spend time with the people who appreciate you “as is,” not the least of which is that you won’t have to constantly edit yourself, which, as you know, gets exhausting. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Part of what makes a game fun is not knowing who is going to win. Uneven matches quickly get dull. On a related note, your personal life will be as satisfying as it is challenging. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The success or failure of your actions is irrelevant. What’s important is that you follow through, honoring your strong convictions. Action increases

your confidence. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). While investigating, trust your more spontaneous instincts. If you want unpredictable answers, you have to ask the unpredictable questions. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Offer your gifts without expectation of who will enjoy them -- you’ll be surprised who does. Tonight features silliness among friends, and you’ll count yourself among the truly happy. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Expectations work best when you’re in a predicable place. But when you’re in a completely new situation, it’s best to let go of your ideas of how things should be and just take in what is. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Socially, you are exceptionally sharp and will remain present to what the moment needs. This quality alone makes you so attractive that you’ll have to manage the attention you get.


Daily Corinthian • Tuesday, June 24, 2014 • 11A

Sneaky little pests and big compost piles I’ve lived long enough to watch many a plant fad come and go. For instance, pansies. Remember when they burst upon the scene? They’d been popular back in Queen Victoria’s day, but no one I knew grew them. Suddenly, every other store had racks of pastel pansies bedecking their front doors each fall. And how about hostas? Yes, of course you can still buy them, but for a while there, everybody and his uncle was lining his flower beds and walks and shady corners with hostas, big round leaves, little narrow leaves, bluetoned, yellow, variegated, you name it. More recently, lantanas and sweet potato vines. Nowadays, it’s knockout roses. There have been many minor come and goes as well. Balloon flowers. Mandevillas. And about ten years ago, I bought myself a chameleon. I mean the plant, not the

lizard. It had a h e a r t shaped leaf in tones of green and ivory with a Ryland faint blush Bruhwiler of pink. Hmm, I Columnist said. Why not. I like the name. I’ll try it. Big mistake. That darn thing spread all through my flower beds. Its roots look like white worms and they go deep, burrowing through hard clay, no problem, then up pop those innocent-looking leaves, here, there, everywhere. This spring I finally decided that I had to do something about it--along with another mistake I’d tucked into the back of the bed, a small patch of bee balm that had suddenly overwhelmed its neighbors. I have spent hours--and hours--digging up those hydras and still not finished the job. One thing keeps leading to another.

For example, the chameleons had sneaked into the garlic bed which has been sitting kerplunk among my flowers. I’d been thinking for years that I ought to move them. So before I dug that area up, I made a deep trench around a stump next to the veggie garden, setting the topsoil aside. Then John carted me and nine buckets of red clay on the back of his tractor down to the barn where he could put it to good use. I filled those buckets with composted horse manure, he carted us back home, and I dumped the manure into the trench, shoveled in a layer of topsoil, another of leafmeal, mixed them by hand. More topsoil... leafmeal...mix by hand.... I just hope that garlic appreciates its new patch. But the most tedious task has been digging up the rich, black earth from my kitchen compost pile to add to the flower beds as they’ve been freed from the clutches of those cha-

meleons. I have never understood why every gardener doesn’t compost their table scraps. Tons of organic matter going to waste, tossed into plastic bags and added to filthy landfills instead of letting it turn into good, rich earth. And let me assure you there’s no need to be scientific about it, adding nitrogen tablets or layering it with so many inches of green scraps and so many inches of brown, as some folks advocate. Six years ago, Mom and I made a very simple pen in my side yard with a few stakes and some leftover wire fencing. And every day or two, I dump a bowl of coffee grinds and lemon rinds, stale cornbread, whatever, over the fence, then top it off with a couple handfuls of leaves or grass clippings to keep the flies away. That also keeps it looking natural (not like a pile of garbage). Unless you’re in a hurry, you do not need to arm yourself with a pitch-

fork and periodically turn it every other week or so. Give it enough time, and that stuff turns into lovely, friable soil all by itself. However, don’t leave it as long as I did--with saplings growing up in it. Their networks of roots make it hard to shovel. But the really irritating, time-consuming, nitpicking part is sifting out those little plastic labels that grocers slap all over our apples and avocados and bananas nowadays. There’s been more than one surprise. Like finding one of my best spoons deep down. And observing that certain seeds don’t compost all that well, when the soil I’d dumped into the flower beds sprouted forth a cucumber vine and more than one hundred tiny tomatoes. I also realized I’d been sharing that narrow pen with a very handsome snake. I’d just filled two fivegallon buckets with my beautiful dirt, dumped

it in the flower beds, and was returning to the compost pile when I noticed that about two thirds of a long, long body had emerged from under the fencing at the far end where I’d been tossing our fresh scraps these last few weeks. Good thinking, buddy. That’s where field mice and other small creatures of the night are likely to investigate the smorgasbord. And there’s Mr. Slick waiting for them in the den he’s burrowed below, listening to their tiny feet rustle above him, listening to their tiny teeth snack on that moldy bread, the cantaloupe seeds, the lima beans left too long at the back of the fridge. He paused. I paused. Then I shrugged. Move on, son. Come back when the coast is clear. (Daily Corinthian columnist Ryland Bruhwiler lives on a farm near Chewalla, Tenn.)

Education leaders support Common Core standards BY JACK ELLIOTT JR. AND JEFF AMY Associated Press

JACKSON — Mississippi’s top education officials are expressing disappointment with Gov. Phil Bryant for calling Common Core “a failed program.” The state superintendent and the chairman of the state Board of Education said Friday that the new academic standards are important to improving achievement in a state that has long lagged behind others. Bryant echoed critics last week who say Common Core doesn’t repre-

sent the highest possible standards. “Common Core is a failed program and many are realizing that these standards are not what many believed them to be,” Bryant said. “Mississippi has the responsibility and authority to manage its own education system and not delegate that control to Washington, D.C.” In Louisiana, Gov. Bobby Jindal is taking steps to block the use of tests tied to the Common Core education standards, a move that puts him — like Bryant — at odds with state

legislative, education and business leaders. The standards spell out what math and English skills students should master at each grade. They were adopted on a state-by-state basis but have faced push-back. Governors in Indiana, South Carolina and Oklahoma have signed legislation to repeal them but one that could help the likely 2016 presidential candidate with tea party supporters and conservative voters. In Mississippi, Wayne Gann, chairman of the state Board of Education,

and state Superintendent of Education Carey Wright said in a joint statement Friday that the state has made some improvements to education over the years but more are needed. “It was obvious that the state’s former standards would not be enough to move us from the bottom of every national measure of education outcomes. It is our hope that our students’ futures are not placed in jeopardy for political expediency,” Gann said. Since Dec. 13, the state Board of Education has

approved spending about $8.4 million on exams Mississippi helped develop through a multistate group. The board has also adopted new course plans and textbook lists. “When board members voted to approve the standards four years ago, we knew that this was an opportunity to provide students with the highquality education that they deserved so they can be better prepared for college or direct entry into the workforce with the knowledge and skills to succeed,” Gann said. Senate Education Com-

mittee Chairman Gray Tollison, R-Oxford, said because teachers will be teaching to the standards and the state plans to administer Common Corealigned standardized tests for the first time in spring 2015, he said it’s probably too late to make any changes for the upcoming school year. “I just think it would be disruptive to those educators and students to do an about-face and adopt lower standards,” Tollison said. “I’m troubled this has gotten into the political realm, but obviously that’s going to happen.”

Mississippi’s baseball program has been among the nation’s elite in terms of fan support and facilities for the better part of a decade. Now the Rebels finally have some results on the field to match. Ole Miss (48-21) made it to the College World Series for the first time since 1972 — and even hung around Omaha for a while — before falling to Virginia 4-1 on Saturday.

It was the deep postseason run Ole Miss fans have been craving for a long time. The Rebels came close to reaching the CWS in 2005, ‘06, ‘07 and ‘09, but lost in the super regional round each season, giving the program a hardluck reputation tough to shed. Now that label is gone and more trips to the CWS will be expected. It’s a goal that veteran coach Mike Bianco mentioned shortly after his team’s season-ending loss. “I’m proud that we’re here,”

Bianco said on Saturday. “And hopefully it won’t take so long to get back.” The Rebels might not need 42 years to get back to Omaha, but at least in the near future, a substantial rebuilding job awaits. Ole Miss could lose several important veterans after nine players were selected in the Major League Baseball amateur draft. Among the underclassmen who must make the stay-orgo decision: starting pitchers Chris Ellis (10-3, 2.55 ERA)

and Christian Trent (9-0, 2.05 ERA), outfielders Braxton Lee (30 stolen bases) and Auston Bousfield (.336, 50 RBIs) and closer Josh Laxer (6 saves, 1.47 ERA). Seniors stalwarts like catcher Will Allen (.339, 64 RBIs), reliever Aaron Greenwood (2.03 ERA) and third baseman Austin Anderson (.323, 41 RBIs) are also gone. “This is a special group of guys — a special group of Please see OLE MISS | 13A

Anthony loves N.Y., wants to see options NEW YORK (AP) — Carmelo Anthony “loves being a Knick” but is headed for free agency because he wants to explore his options, his agent said. Anthony had a Monday deadline to terminate the final year of his contract and had already informed the team he would do so. He will be able to negotiate with teams starting July 1. “Carmelo loves being a Knick, he loves the city and the fans,” Leon Rose said. “At this stage of his career he just wants to explore his options.” The best one financially would be to return to New York, which can offer him an extra year and around $25 million more than any team under NBA rules. But Anthony has said his priority at this stage of his career is to contend for championships, and the Knicks are coming off a 37-45 season and have little ability to upgrade the roster this summer because of salary cap rules. Teams such as Chicago, Houston, Dallas and Miami have all been mentioned as teams that could be interested in the All-Star forward, and all are playoff teams with established stars already on the roster. Anthony would have earned $23.3 million next season had he chose to play out the final year of his deal. Knicks president Phil Jackson had told Anthony it may be a good idea to consider that, but Anthony had repeatedly said his preference was to become a free agent this summer, Please see SHORTS | 13A

North Mississippi Motor Park Speedway BY H. LEE SMITH II lsmith@dailycorinthian.com

Some 600 fans were on the edge of their seats Saturday night at North Mississippi Motor Park. Fifty cars were entered in the weekly races at the fastest high bank track in North Mississippi, with 49 starting the feature in five classes. Racing will continue on Saturday. No races will be staged

on July 5 due to the holiday weekend, with regular racing returning on July 12. Upcoming events also include the $1,000 602 race on July 19 and the $1,000 600 Outlaw sprints on July 26. Saturday’s featured winner was Ashley Newman, who claimed the $2,000 first-place prize money in the Limited Late Model event. Danny Christian

posted the fastest qualifying time at 13.61. The Limited Late Model saw 16 entries, 12 of which finished. Entries by class also included Modified Street (12 with 7 finishers), Stock Late Model (9, 7), Pure Street (7, 3), and Outlaw (5, 4). Other highlights from Saturday’s races: • Todd Robinson claimed

the five-car Outlaw division. The bounty of $150 will remain in play for one more week. • In the seven-deep Pure Street class, Chance Burcham was black flagged. As a result, he will be barred from competing the next two racing weeks. Please see NMMPS | 13A

Wimbledon welcomes back defending champ The Associated Press

LONDON — It had been, famously, more than 75 years since a British man arrived at Wimbledon as the defending champion. So Andy Murray took a moment — and, really, only a moment — to take in the sights and sounds Monday at Centre Court as nearly 15,000 spectators, including Shaquille O’Neal up in the Royal

Box, rose to greet him with a raucous standing ovation. Murray’s parents and grandparents were present. So, of course, was his muchdiscussed recent choice as coach, Amelie Mauresmo. The other player, 105thranked David Goffin of Belgium, was little more than a bystander for all of the proceedings, which wrapped up a little more than two hours af-

ter they began with a 6-1, 6-4, 7-5 victory for Murray. “I was pretty nervous and stuff before the match. Then when you’re walking to the court — I have a lot of memories obviously from last year. To come to the court and get that reception, it was very nice,” said Murray, who last year became the first man from Britain since Fred Perry in 1936 to win the nation’s

prestigious tennis tournament. That title for Perry was his third in a row at the All England Club, but he did not try for another one in 1937. Murray heeded advice from Mauresmo, the 2006 women’s champion at Wimbledon, who told him to soak in everything while walking out to play because, as he put it, “You never know if you’ll get the chance to do it again.”

5 things to know about the Heat offseason The Associated Press

MIAMI — LeBron James headed to the Bahamas on vacation, Chris Bosh is on a world tour with his family and Dwyane Wade posted a photo of a new backpack suggesting he was ready for some offseason getaways as well. So we know Miami’s “Big 3” are going places.

Where those guys will be when training camp opens in September, well, that’s the story of the NBA offseason — and the next chapter could start to be unveiled during Thursday’s night draft. And here’s five things to know as the Heat get ready for the summer that will shape the direction of the franchise: DRAFT NIGHT: Thurs-

day’s draft might provide some clues. If the Heat take a point guard, that might be a sign that free agent Mario Chalmers is expendable. If they take a big man, perhaps that indicates that James won’t be asked to post up so much if he returns. But it’s very possible Miami will have no idea what the Big 3 plan to do by

Thursday. So look for the Heat to go “best available player” when they go on the draft clock. DATES TO KNOW: After Thursday night’s draft and before the free agency frenzy starts July 1, there are a few other key dates facing the Heat. Please see HEAT | 13A

College Recruiting: Next promise could be paycheck The Associated Press

OAKLAND, Calif. — They come calling with promises of a good education, a chance to play on television and some of the best facilities that money can buy. There may come a time, though, when recruiters chasing the best high school football and basketball players offer something else: a nice paycheck to take with them as a parting gift when their col-

lege days are over. Football players could get several hundred thousand dollars. Basketball players would do even better, perhaps becoming millionaires even if they never play a day in the NBA. Under some scenarios they could take the payments in lieu of what they would have gotten for tuition and room and board. They would be college employees of a sort, able to take classes

if they wish or simply play sports. And the NCAA might still be able to take the high road and continue to run big-time college sports as “amateur” programs. “There’s nothing inherent in the word amateurism that says increasing substantially the amount paid athletes would violate the principle of amateurism,” said Stanford economics professor Roger Noll, who tes-

tified on behalf of the plaintiffs. “There’s no reason to believe that.” It’s all theoretical, of course, based on models that may never come into play. But just what the future of big-time college athletics may look like if the NCAA loses a landmark antitrust suit is beginning to come into focus as attorneys representing former UCLA basketball star Ed O’Bannon and others press their case in a federal court trial.

older guys,”” Bianco said. ““(They) were such great mentors to the younger group that is so talented, but wasn’’t sure what to do when they got here. These guys put them on their back and were tremendous all year.”” The younger group Bianco referenced includes freshmen like shortstop Errol Robinson and outelders J.B. Woodman and Colby Bortles. All three provided big moments during the postseason. The mix of veterans and freshmen proved to be the right mix to push the program to Omaha. Ole Miss won the SEC’’s Western Division with a 19-11 record —— despite being picked near the

bottom of the league during the preseason by the league’’s coaches —— and the 48 overall wins tied a school record set in 2005. The Rebels had one of the best lineups in the country, hitting .297 as a team with 42 homers. One of the few times the Ole Miss offense struggled was in Omaha, where TD Ameritrade’’s cavernous dimensions and windy conditions took a toll. The Rebels scored just 10 runs over four games. But the season’’s nal loss did little to diminish the magnitude of the team’’s accomplishments this season. Bianco said this year’’s group will ““go down as the best team that ever played at Ole Miss.””

HEAT CONTINUED FROM PAGE 12A

—— June 29: Chris Andersen has until then to decide if he is accepting his player option of about $1.4 million for next season. Odds of this happening are virtually nil; Andersen wants a raise and after shooting 64 percent this season, he’’s going to get one, from Miami or someone else. —— June 30: This is the deadline for James, Wade and Bosh informing the Heat if they are opting out of their contracts and becoming free agents. Each is slotted to make just over $20 million next season and could stay with Miami even if they opt out. Also, this is Udonis Haslem’’s deadline to say if he is taking his $4.6 million player option. IT’’S DIFFERENT: In 2010, there was really only one formula in which the teaming up of James, Wade and Bosh could happen. There was a nite amount of money for them to share, and the salary of any player they wanted to add —— Mike Miller and Udonis Haslem being the best examples —— would have to come out of that communal pie. This time, there’’s countless ways things could unfold. That’’s both a blessing and a curse for Miami. It gives the Heat front ofce tons of options, and the creativity could help them put this puzzle together. It also gives the players the ability to make demands that simply couldn’’t be

considered four years ago. There was one-forall thinking in 2010, with everyone considered equals. It almost certainly won’’t be the same this time, not with James’’ stock still rising. TAX CONSIDERATIONS: One of the few moments where James laughed during his end-of-season interview session was when the conversation turned to money matters. ““I like money,”” James said. As such, it’’s worth noting that Florida has no state income tax. At his estimated $55 million annual income —— including endorsements —— he could pay about $3 million more in taxes than he does now if living in Ohio, or possibly $6 million more in taxes by moving to California. Then again, James makes enough to absorb any tax hit. WADE’’S LEGACY: There were absolute reasons why Heat President Pat Riley defended Wade so staunchly in his endof-season meeting with reporters. Make no mistake: The Heat don’’t believe he’’s done. Wade has appeared in 871 games, playoffs included, with the Heat. Among current players, only Tim Duncan, Kobe Bryant, Dirk Nowitzki, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili have played in more games and spent their entirety of their on-court careers with the same team (though Bryant was drafted by Charlotte and Nowitzki chosen by Milwaukee).

and he reiterated that to Jackson, general manager Steve Mills and new coach Derek Fisher during a recent meeting in Los Angeles. Anthony averaged 27.4 points and 8.1 rebounds last season. Both Jackson and

Fisher have said they hope the two-time Olympic gold medalist stays, but will be prepared if he doesn’t. “I’m not losing sleep over it, but I’m definitely concerned about the idea of a guy going into free agency. It only takes one bidder out there that has the ability

and can ruin your hopes and your chances,” Jackson said recently. “We will survive it. That’s what I’ve said and we’ll go forward. But this is a guy we recognize his talent and his skill is the kind of skill and talent that gets you through playoff games where things get

sticky, grind out and basketball becomes a force game and suddenly you need to have a player who has the capabilities of scoring with someone hanging on them in a situation that’s critical. He’s one of those players, one of the few players who can do that.”

TWINS CONTINUED FROM 1A

but it’s not fun looking like two twinkies.” In school, the duo was described as being very mischievous. “We were always joking around and playing jokes on others,” Matt says. Kevin recalls their first grade year, when their mom insisted they were placed in separate classes. “Looking back now, we were winners either way,” he says. “If we were in the same class, we would have had fun, but if we were in different classes, we were going to switch.” Switching places is something the Mitchells do well. The brothers learned at a young age just how talented they were when it came to swapping spots. “We first switched in the fourth grade. After that, it was on,” says Matt, with a chuckle in his voice. “We switched at least once a year from the fourth grade all the way through Northeast and Ole Miss,” says Kevin. “It was so fun ... and we just had to see if we could get away with it. We would either dress alike that day or both go to the bathroom at the same time and switch shirts. To this day, we’ve never been caught.” The twins insist they no longer play the switcharoo game. In 2000, Kevin received a call from Twila Bridges, who is heavily involved in local theatre. “She was telling me about this movie being filmed in Holly Springs. They were looking for two males to play the role of Rosanna Arquette’s mortician twin brothers in the independent film ‘Big Bad Love’,” says Kevin. When the brothers tried out for the role of twin #1 and twin #2, they were required to read only one line each.

The seven-year-old Mitchell brothers often dressed identical when they were younger. “It was very disappointing to only read one line, so we decided to give them a little extra,” says Matt. “We both quoted Clint Eastwood lines and we got a call back.” The brothers have been longtime fans of Eastwood, who shares the same birthday with the twins. “I remember the director, Arliss Howard, telling us we were strange, but he liked us,” added Kevin. “Big Bad Love” wasn’t a big hit, but because the Mitchells had principal roles, they were paid on union scale. “The first few checks were pretty good,” says Matt. “I remember I bought myself a brand new Troy-bilt weed eater with my first check. I was in heaven.” The most recent $14.24 royalty check was for one year’s worth of “Big Bad Love” showings on premium networks. “I often compare being in that movie to hitting a hole in one on Sunday

morning when everyone is in church ... it was a good shot, but no one was there to see it,” Kevin says. Matt first realized they were washed up movie stars at a recent yard sale. “The movie was marked $2 and the lady was willing to take less,” Matt says. “I was let down a bit, but I did go ahead and buy it. Now I have four copies of the movie.” “It’s a small collection,” Kevin says. Acting was just a side trip in the Mitchell twins lives. While neither plan to quit their day jobs, the brothers have had more success with their musical venture. “This year marks the 20th anniversary of Hurricane Kevin and the Breeze,” says a proud Kevin. “I’m the Kevin and Matt’s the breeze.” “I’m okay with it,” Matt says. “I actually came up with the name when we were running from Hurricane Bertha. We were playing a gig in Myrtle

Beach and the storm was coming ashore.” “People used to call us ‘Lightening and Rod’ because we always had a healthy respect for weather,” says Kevin. The two have never been big weather fans. Often when bad weather rolls into an area, the twins roll out. “When all six of us are playing, I like to think we’re a category five storm,” Matt says. Kevin plays a mean three chords on his rhythm guitar, while both of the twins sing hits from the ‘70s, ‘80s and classic country. Musicians who often join the Mitchells include Kevin’s brother-in-law Cole Sanders, their cousin Ben Mitchell, Brandon Bingham, Brian Graham, with occasional help from original band members Richie Tenhet and Andy Long. “We play with talented musicians. They know ahead of time they have to water it down to my speed. We call it ‘Mitchellizing’ a song,” says Kevin. “When a complex song is dumbed down to just three chords, so I can keep up.” Matt says with a smile, “we’re not true musicians, because they sing with their eyes closed. We’re more like entertainers. We sing with our eyes open in case someone throws something at us.” These days the twins

enjoy their lives in Corinth. They both have understanding wives and two beautiful children each. They are active in the community and are both long time members of Tate Baptist Church. “We like to say, we’ve been going to Tate Baptist since nine months before we were born,” says Kevin. The brothers can often be seen in the community volunteering their time to make a difference. They’ll actually roll up their sleeves next month to help with Tate Cares, a community outreach program at their church. Kevin works as the branch manger at the Home Banking Company and is approaching his 10th year as a member of the Corinth Kiwanis. Matt works at Region IV Mental Health Center and is an active board member of the Oasis Medical Center. “I have been told when you marry a twin, you get two for the price of one,” says Beth about husband, Kevin and brother-in-law, Matt. “It’s really great and I wouldn’t have it any other way. There is a laugh every minute. If Kevin isn’t saying something funny, Matt is.” Both of the Mitchell brothers are great husbands and fathers, notes Beth. “They are constantly joking around,” she says. “I often tell Kevin to call Matt if he wants a laugh,

because Matt finds things to be funnier than I do ... must be a twin thing.” Matt’s wife, Rachel, agrees. “Matt is a wonderful husband and father, but I don’t think I’ll ever understand him the way Kevin does,” she says. “Their connection is amazing and can only be explained as designed by God. ” Rachel says the two brothers are truly “one” of a kind. “They not only look alike, but they think alike, reason alike and ‘play’ alike,” she says. “Yet they are each their own distinct person.” Humor is definitely a big part of the two brothers lives. “I remember being in a church class when I was little. The teacher asked everyone who they wanted to be like when they grew up,” says Kevin. “All the kids were wanting to be like Moses or John The Baptist. When the teacher got to me, I said I wanted to be like Johnny Carson.” After Matt snickered a bit, he said he was still a little upset at Kevin about one thing. “When we were in college at Northeast, Kevin was voted Mr. Northeast,” Matt says. “To this day, I’m certain those people thought they were voting to me.” As Matt gets the last laugh, Kevin seems a little upset. It must be a twin thing.

Good barbecue has boundaries, remains sacred matter If good barbecue were a hurricane, the eye of it would be located in Memphis, Tennessee. I’m convinced that an invisible perimeter radiates from the Bluff City, home of Elvis and the blues, where cooked pig is almost sacred. I’m not sure of the exact boundaries, although on Nashville-bound Interstate 40, there should be a gargantuan marker or tangible red line on the bridge crossing the Tennessee River, distinguishing the end of the Memphis barbecue trail on the east side. On many subjects, I am liberal, open-minded, progressive — except when the topic turns to barbecue. On that one, I am willing to acknowledge other viewpoints, but I am generally not willing to concede to them. In early June while listening to the Sunday broadcast of The Splendid Table on National Public Radio, I bristled when I heard two food critics express an opposing opinion. According to their website, Jane and Michael Stern of Roadfood.com “drive around America looking for good food and exploring popular culture.” During the broadcast, they suggested that “good barbecue is no longer confined to the South.”

They then proceeded to tout an establishment located in Wingdale, New Stacy York called Jones Big W’s Roadside Downtowner BBQ, about 80 miles northeast of New York City. Don’t misunderstand me: I love New York for its theaters, museums, restaurants, and the frenetic pace of people who pulse through the city at all hours of the day and night. I do not go, however, to the Big Apple for barbecue. I was immediately reminded of that 1980s Pace Picante Sauce commercial decrying a competitor’s brand of salsa made in New York. “Get a rope,” the grizzled man in the advertisement grunted. I feel even stronger about my barbecue. I then visited the Splendid Table website, where the pair describes Big W’s as “a casual roadside barbecue… that offers a round-the-nation taste of excellent smoked meats: brisket, pulled pork, chicken, ribs, and burnt ends. The menu also includes chili, hot wings, and very good side dishes.” That succint description put to rout any credibility

I might have been able to invest in the roadside eatery, as any true barbecue gourmand knows that a serious barbecue producer specializes. Furthermore, those of us serious about Memphis barbecue may pretend to allow Texans to think their beef brisket is just as good as pulled pork — just as we play along with the charade of allowing them to believe Texas is located in the South — but we know better. Next, I decided to see what my friends on social media had to say about the matter. I entered the following post on Facebook that afternoon: “I heard a couple of food critics say on NPR that ‘good barbecue is no longer confined to the South.’ What are these people’s credentials, and have they truly been to Memphis?” I knew that posting about a topic so controversial would surely elicit a number of responses — and it did: over 20 of them. My friend Art responded almost immediately: “One can only assume that question is rhetorical in nature...” My friend Jane said, “It’s called ‘delusional.’” My friend Lynda said, “All I can say is...I’m always optimistic when [storrm] chasing through the Plains and have yet to find any BBQ as good

as we have.” My friend Larry said, “People that wouldn’t know a sauce mop from a lollipop talk about BBQ with less than two cents to add to the subject other than, ‘Dang that was wonderful!’” My friend Deborah added, “ Yes, and I bet they think the Mojave Desert is as beautiful as the soft, rolling, green hills or the mossy oak woods of the South. For their sake, they need to believe what they say.” My friend Adam, a west Tennesseean who now lives in Austin, Texas, proceeded to defend pork barbecue over beef brisket, after which my friend Ed, a Corinthian, disagreed vehemently, calling pork barbecue “blashphemy.” See? I knew all along there was a connection

Tennessee. I did have some pretty decent ribs and pulled pork in Kansas City. Had some really good brisket at a couple of places in Texas, but nothing compares to here.” And so two public radio food critics may truly believe that good barbecue exists outside of Memphis — heeavens, outside of the South! For me, pulled pork and pork ribs are, as I’ve said, like a religion, so I’m a doubting Thomas. I’d have to taste it to believe it. Anything else is heresy.

My friend Melissa digressed by discounting the source, saying “Well, you were listening to NPR.” I took up for public radio but hoped the post would be salvaged from hijacking. Finally, my two favorite responses—underscoring my own opinion—came from my friend Leslie from Corinth and my brother Loyd, who lives in Germantown. Leslie wrote, “I’ve tried BBQ in the Carolina’s, Texas, and Kansas. They all claim to have the best. Beef brisket is good, but it ain’t BBQ. We have the best. Hands down with no contest.” My brother Loyd said, “I have lived in North Carolina and Alabama, and what they call BBQ can’t hold a candle to west

Photographer’s passion is black and white BY ANGELA STOREY astorey@dailycorinthian.com

If there’s an old rundown barn or some antique farm equipment around, it may catch the eye of Booneville photographer William Patrick (Pat) Hensley. Hensley’s speciality is shooting photos in black and white. A native Californian, he has lived in Booneville for the past 14 years thanks to his wife, Shanda, who grew up in Booneville. He is a self-described outdoor type of photographer and not the ‘wedding type’ — at least for now. Hensley has been doing photography most of his life but has been a freelance photographer for the past five years or so. Photography is his parttime work. His full-time work is being a delivery driver for Tippah County Growers, a nursery in Tipplersville. Since moving to Mississippi more than a decade ago, he has enjoyed taking pictures of old barns and rustic buildings. Recently he ventured into taking photos pertaining to the Civil War such as cannons at Shiloh and other military parks and reenactments of Civil War battles. “Although I haven’t done many of these yet, I’m looking forward to doing them,” said Hensley. He has also begun doing studio photography where he takes photos of different objects. “I’ve been interested in photography all my life but really started doing it when I moved to Booneville since there’s so much ‘old’ stuff to be found

here, plus all the Civil War things that I’m really interested in,” he said. His black and white photography has been inspired by the famed black and white photography of Ansel Adams who was famous for taking pictures of the national parks and most famously for his photography of Yosemite. “That’s one place I’d love to go take pictures of, along with the Grand Canyon,” Hensley said, noting those locations are on his photography bucket list. A project he is giving serious thought is the possibility of putting together a book of his cannon shots from Shiloh. One of his favorite places to shoot locally is at Ray’s Place on Highway 4 East, Booneville, because of its authentic vintage feel, which he expertly captures in his crisp black and white shots. Hensley is strictly a Canon camera products photographer. Although vintage buildings and Civil War items are the things he is most interested in photographing, “Anything that looks interesting to me I’m willing to take a shot at,” he says. He has had his work for sale at the Green Market in Corinth a couple of times and looks forward to being there again in August. He also plans to have a booth with his photography displays at the Fall Festival in Booneville in October.

This vintage scene was shot at Ray’s Place east of Booneville. A cannon now silent at Shiloh National Military Park.

Does pride really come before every fall? At times it seems so I’m not sure if pride goes before a fall – for me it’s usually talking on the phone while holding a coffee cup and avoiding one or both cats as I’m walking up the stairs that does it -- but I do know that pride contributes to a tumble out of your porch swing. See, when you tell folks you fell out of your porch swing, they immediately think either you were on your third glass of wine or you are a lazy homeowner who neglects important safety inspections of potentially dangerous furniture. But pride is the culprit here. Not just one instance of pride, but a whole succession of unwarranted prideful thoughts. It started on Mother’s Day weekend. My daughters and grandbabies were coming to visit, and as usually happens when company’s coming, I wanted the house to look nice. And as also usually happens when company’s coming, I got into a cleaning frenzy where nothing’s safe. That’s how I found myself on the porch, contemplating

the swing that had been clean enough for me to sit on just the previous day but now seemed dirty beyond beCathy lief. Wood So with a fierceness I usuColumnist ally reserve for rooting against any Nick Saban team, I attacked that porch swing, cleaningwise, and restored it to something approaching its original pristine condition. Was I a little too proud of my hard work? Did I hope someone would walk by and say, “Oh my goodness, that is the best cleaning job ever!”? Did I secretly believe my gleaning white porch swing was the prettiest on our street? I think we all know the answers. Prideful thoughts nos. 1, 2 and 3. Proceed to a month later. This is when karma exerts her universe-balancing tendencies. Or luck and coordination fail

me. Take your pick. It was a gorgeous spring day – sunshine, warm breeze, blue sky. I was walking home from the salon in downtown Corinth where I get my hair cut and feeling good because my hair looked fantastic. I can say this with total modesty because I look in the mirror every morning after I’ve fixed my hair and I know it looks the same as before I did anything and sometimes worse. I am not a hair person. But for one day every two months or so, after I go to the hair salon, I’ve got the smooth and shining hair of my dreams and I take full advantage of it. So on this rare gorgeous hair day, did I walk around town hoping people would notice? Had I planned lunch out with my husband and dinner out with friends to get full mileage out of my professionally styled ’do? Did I incorporate extra hair tossing into every conversation I had on my way home? Yes, yes and yes. Prideful thoughts nos. 4, 5 and 6. Now we come to the fate-

See, when you tell folks you fell out of your porch swing, they immediately think either you were on your third glass of wine or you are a lazy homeowner who neglects important safety inspections. ful moment that day when bad decisions and misplaced selfcongratulations exact their due. As I rounded the corner to our house, I saw my husband standing behind our magnificently clean porch swing. As I bounded up our front steps – hoping my hair was glowing in the sunshine – I noticed he was watching Smart Cat (so called because she gets us to do things for her, such as go outside) stretched out on the cool concrete. Feeling jaunty, I jumped up onto the swing and twisted around to tease her and see how many hair compliments I could get out of my husband. But before he could tell me how good I looked (I know

that’s what he was going to say), the chain on a corner of the swing slipped out of its eye bolt and I ended up flat on the floor with the porch swing dangling in front of my face, a huge weird sort of headache and my husband saying: “Don’t move. Don’t move. Wait, you have to move so the swing won’t hit you.” He then got Smart Cat back inside and me to the emergency room. The good news was that I didn’t have a concussion. And more good news: My hair still looked great. (Cathy Wood is a freelance writer living in downtown Corinth. She contributes to the Daily Corinthian and Crossroads Magazine.)

Family member makes rude remarks on Facebook WIZARD OF ID

DILBERT

GARFIELD

FORT KNOX

PICKLES

Dear Annie: I am the thrilled stepgrandmother of a wonderful grandson, age 3. I’ve had the privilege of taking care of him twice a week since he was born. I decided to post his pictures on Facebook because his extended family lives all over the country and appreciates the updates on his outings and activities. I also enjoy having a computerized photo book not only for myself, but to share with my housebound mother. The problem is, one family member seems to post only negative remarks about him. Her comments have included criticisms of his baby blanket, his potty training and the length of his hair. She never compliments the boy or makes any positive comments at all. Today, she annoyed me so much that I deleted her comments from my page. I know that was petty and probably rude. Is there any kind of etiquette regarding Facebook posts? What about polite responses to unsolicited negative opinions about one’s grandson? — Wondering Dear Wondering: We have to wonder what would prompt anyone to make disparaging remarks about a 3-year-old on Facebook. (The most obvious reason is jealousy.) You can “re-

Annie’s Mailbox assign” this relative so that she no longer sees posted pictures of your grandson unless you specifically include her. You also can block her comments. Both solutions are acceptable. However, if you wish to address this with her, please do so with a personal phone call, asking whether there is a problem that can be fixed. It is the shared, public aspect of what should be a personal dispute that makes it especially rude. Dear Annie: You’ve printed letters about parents who are estranged from their children and have responded that neither side should let slights fester until it’s too late. So tell me, Annie, what about a child who has been treated poorly for her entire childhood? I’m talking about my daughter. My husband led a secret life of sex and drugs and passed two STDs to me. He neglected his family to the point of emotional abuse. We are now getting a divorce after 33 years. My daughter is getting

married soon and has no intention of telling her father. This pains me, because I always hoped they would reconcile. I don’t want her to live with regret. While I am sad for my daughter, I understand why she wants nothing to do with him, and she seems to be better off without the pain he caused. What do you think she should do? -- Betrayed in Virginia Dear Virginia: We think this is your daughter’s choice. Yes, it is possible that she will someday regret not having Dad at her wedding, but she should not feel guilty for excluding him. And keep in mind, your soon-to-be-ex also could reach out to find out what is going on in his daughter’s life. The best thing for you to do is not vilify her father or provoke her to recall her bitter experiences. We hope someday she can forgive him, not for his sake, but for hers.

Rambeau loves history, becomes Shiloh tour guide BY SARAH ROWLAND For the Daily Corinthian

The day his wife told him her company was relocating her from Virginia to Corinth, Thomas Rambeau couldn’t contain his excitement. He explained to her that just over the state line near their new hometown was the site of one of the most famous and bloodiest battles of the Civil War, the Battle of Shiloh. Rambeau has been a long-time “Civil War buff.” His deep interest in the Civil War would seem inevitable growing up near Gettysburg National Military Park, where he frequently visited and gave informal tours to family and friends. He said to become an official Gettysburg tour guide you have to pass a difficult test that some men had been trying to pass for 20 years. The test, along with rearing a family at the time, didn’t allow Rambeau to be a tour guide at Gettysburg. When he began visiting Shiloh National Military Park, though, Rambeau connected with David Stewart, who asked him to be an official tour guide for Shiloh Civil War Tours, which specializes in tours of Shiloh and Corinth. Stewart said when they first met he was very impressed with Rambeau’s knowledge of and enthusiasm for Civil War history and told him he needed to be a guide. Rambeau immersed himself in local Civil War history to the point where Stewart, who holds a bachelor’s in history, said Rambeau probably knows more about the Civil War than he does. Rambeau is only one of two guys who are knowledgeable enough to give tours of Corinth. He said in the feedback they receive about their tours, “Many people say they love Tom because he’s just like a walking encyclopedia,” especially since he not only knows so much about Shiloh history, but how the Battle of Shiloh fits into the history of the entire Civil War. “He adds so much to the community. He’s a terrific guy and a great asset to the community,” said Stewart mentioning also that though Rambeau has only lived in the area less than four years, he’s already made so many friends through his love of Civil War history. Rambeau explained that he has “the gift of

gab.” He said when he’s visiting the park alone he’ll often approach people who may be looking at a monument and ask to explain to them the history behind the monument. He shared many interesting stories of people he’s met through the tours he’s conducted, including several who had ancestors who fought at Shiloh. “Lots of people come here to see where their ancestors fought, which is very emotional,” he said. He had the opportunity to escort a 94-year-old woman and her sons and grandchildren to the 54th Ohio Regiment’s monument, the regiment her great-grandfather fought with and she still remembered his stories of fighting at Shiloh. Rambeau said since a lot of people know what regiment their ancestors fought in, “What I’ll do is I’ll study that regiment before they get here and emphasize that regiment throughout the tour following the regiment around the battlefield and talk about what they did, how many casualties they had, and the prominent people in that regiment.” At the 150th anniversary of the battle two years ago, he met a woman who is a re-enactor from Pittsburgh and the greatgreat-great-granddaughter of the first surgeon killed in the Shiloh battle. “One of the most difficult parts [touring Shiloh] is trying to get people to imagine in their heads what it would have been like. The smoke, the noise, the confusion.” Imagining just the amount of lead flying around the battlefield, “It’s a wonder anybody made it out alive,” he said. He questioned why a foot soldier could make it through the battle untouched, yet Albert Sidney Johnston, the Confederate general, died early in the fighting because of an undetected bullet wound to his leg. “It’s tough bringing southerners here because it’s all set up from a northern point of view,” he said explaining that when the park at Shiloh was founded over 100 years ago, Confederate soldiers weren’t allowed to be buried in the cemetery and many of the first monuments represented the north. Monuments for the South were added years later. “Many southerners have ancestors who

His favorite place is Shiloh National Military Park, where he stands beside the Tennessee monument. fought here and they fought bravely and they died here for what they believe in,” he said. He explained that many of the Confederate soldiers were fighting because they believed their country was being invaded and they were fighting for their homes. Rambeau explained that the importance of the Battle of Shiloh was to protect Confederate control of Corinth, where two important railroads crossed. The Union army led by General Ulysses

Grant traveled down the Tennessee River by steamboat and unloaded at Pittsburgh Landing at Shiloh to march toward Corinth while another Union army led by General Don Carlos Buell marched toward Shiloh by land. Confederate General Johnston knew he needed to engage Grant’s army and take Shiloh before Grant and Buell’s armies combined and outnumbered the Confederates. By the end of the first day, it looked as if the

Union army would be defeated, but on the second day the Confederate army took a severe blow as they were greatly outnumbered. The Confederate army retreated to Corinth while the Union army occupied Shiloh. Rambeau explained that Shiloh’s space and terrain gave the Union army plenty of room to comfortably drill and prepare up to 100,000 men for the siege of Corinth one month later. Rambeau said he’s grateful to Stewart for

taking him on as a tour guide and he’s grateful for the park rangers. “They do a wonderful job. You just can’t say enough about these people.

Fascination with Sherlock Holmes is pure ‘elementary’ I realize Sherlock Holmes’ aficionados may be offended, but I thoroughly enjoyed Hollywood’s adaptation of the famous 19th century detective as portrayed by Robert Downey Jr. His sidekick, Dr. Watson, played by Jude Law, is not hard to look at either. I find Downey’s characterization of Holmes, charming and clever and look forward to more of his swashbuckling adventures with Dr. Watson. Having said that, Benedict Cumberbach’s portrayal of Sherlock Holmes is my favorite. I have been completely drawn into the world of BBC’s “Sherlock,” which also stars Martin Freeman. Both excellent actors, Cumberbach and Freeman have become hugely popular in recent years. Cumberbach plays “Kahn” in the most recent “Star Trek” production. He is also the voice of the dragon in “The Hobbit, Desolation of Smaug.” Freeman is the lead character, Bilbo Bag-

Carol Humphreys Columnist

gins, in “The Hobbit” movies and co-stars along with Billy Bob Thornton in the dark but well-done television

show “Fargo.” From the moment I set eyes on Benedict Cumberbach -- what a name! -- as Sherlock Holmes, I was mesmerized. I’ve always pictured the British sleuth as a middle-aged man wearing a tweed cap with a pipe hanging out of his mouth. Cumberbach’s Sherlock is a tall, lanky young man who hates wearing the tweed cap, wears nicotine patches and has piercing gray eyes. He wears a long black trench coat and is suitably Gothic in appearance. Though BBC’s adaptation is set in modern times, the show’s dark setting reminds me of Charles Dickens’ Victo-

rian London. As a teenager, I read about Holmes in “The Hounds of the Baskerville,” written in the early 20th century, either, because I was bored and found it in my mother’s extensive library; or because it was required reading in high school. All I remembered about the story was the huge ghostly and vicious black dogs (hounds) and that there was a lot of running around on the English moors. My other concept of Sherlock Holmes was from black and white movies made in the 1930s. I knew when Scotland Yard had a seemingly impossible crime to solve, they turned to Holmes. The consulting detective was known to be clever and extraordinary skilled at solving criminal cases. I also knew he was assisted by Dr. Watson (“Elementary, my dear Watson”) and for some reason that he was a cocaine addict. I didn’t know he was

known as a psychopath. Or as Cumberbach’s Sherlock would say in response to being called a psychopath, “I’m a highfunctioning sociopath. Do your research.” Dr. Watson discovers Holmes is indeed a brilliant, eccentric man. The detective leaps with joy and anticipation when a seemingly impossible criminal case is brought to him. He grins with delight as he tells Watson, “The game is on!” Sherlock will do anything, including taking it “to the edge” or risk being killed to stop from being bored. He has amazing deductive skills by employing his “mind palace.” This enviable skill is his ability to store facts in his long-term memory and then be able to call upon them as needed. In the show, you visually travel into Holmes’ mind palace as he puts all his facts in sequence to help solve cases. Freeman’s characterization of John Watson

is as fascinating to watch as Cumberbach’s Holmes. His facial expressions and body language in reaction to Sherlock’s lightningfast mind and astounding behavior are priceless. There is obvious chemistry between the two actors. However, though Watson is obviously the saner, more reasonable of the two, it turns out he needs the danger and excitement almost as much as Sherlock. An army doctor during Britain’s part in the current war in Afghanistan, Watson returns home with post traumatic syndrome. He feels empty and alone. Trying to “find himself” the doctor ends up as a roommate to the weirdly brilliant Holmes. He is immediately caught up in life and death situations as he becomes the detectives unlikely partner. In one episode, Sherlock’s brother Mycroft tells Watson, “When you walk with Sherlock, you see the battleground. You are not haunted by war

but (rather) miss it.” “Welcome, back,” He adds. Once hooked, I couldn’t get enough of BBC’s witty, intriguing “Sherlock.” Unfortunately, only three episodes are produced every two years. I had to wait six months for the 2014 season to come out on Netflix. There are also three seasons available on DVD. It was my daughter Anna who suggested I watch “Sherlock” as a counter option to Hollywood’s version of “Sherlock Holmes.” I liked Hollywood’s version, but I can hardly wait for more of the British version. My fascination with it is pure “elementary.” Plus I love saying, “Benedict Cumberbach,” almost as much as watching him.

Extension Outdoors Stay safe around snakes, but let them do their job BY LESLIE BURGER Wildlife Biologist MSU Extension Service

Crafters Artisans Farmers Join us Saturday, July 5 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. First Saturday, April-October 221 North Fillmore at the Corinth Depot 287-3120 corinthgreenmarket.com The Green Market is the banner fundraiser for the Crossroads Museum, a non-profit organization.

STARKVILLE — Despite most people’s fears, snakes are an important part of the natural world and are also helpful in many ways. All snakes are predators, meaning they feed on other animals. Snakes kill and eat rats, mice, moles, insects and other pests that can damage crops and property or spread disease. Because snakes can get into places that other predators cannot or will not go, they can capture rodents that threaten livestock feed or farming equipment and supplies. Some snakes, such as king snakes, milk snakes and black racers, commonly eat other snakes, including venomous ones. Snake venom is also being studied for its possible medical uses in treating blood and heart problems and controlling harmful bacteria. When people encounter a snake in or around their home, they are understandably concerned about whether it is dangerous. Mississippi has about 50 different species of snakes, but in most cases, snakes that live near people – garter, ringneck and rat snakes – are harmless. Only six species found in the state are venomous -- sometimes incorrectly called poisonous. These are the copperhead, cottonmouth or water moccasin, coral snake, canebrake or timber rattlesnake, pygmy rattlesnake and eastern dia-

mondback rattlesnake. In Mississippi, all but one of these venomous snakes has a flat, triangular-shaped head with vertical, cat-like pupils in their eyes. The exception to this rule is the coral snake, which has round pupils and an oval head. Several non-venomous snakes have colors and patterns similar to those of venomous snakes, so the best way to avoid a bite is to avoid the encounter altogether. It may be hard to believe, but the majority of people hospitalized with a snakebite were bitten while trying to kill the snake. Had they simply taken two steps backward and given the animal some space, it is likely that the whole unpleasant, expensive experience could have been prevented. Preventing and discouraging snakes and their prey from living near or in your home is the best way to control them. There are no repellents, poisons or other chemicals approved for snake control. There is no documented evidence that home remedies, such as mothballs, sulfur or cayenne pepper spray, are effective. In early spring, the cool weather drives snakes to seek warm spots, such as metal cans, black surfaces or other heat-conducting items. Remove these hiding places around your home and outbuildings, including stacks of boards or firewood, rock piles and weeds. Seal off gaps around foundations or porches with packed soil or rigid materials, such as bricks or small-mesh

metal hardware cloth. Secure animal food in closed containers to discourage rodents and the snakes that eat them. Sometimes, in spite of prevention, a snake will still find a way to enter a house. One way to remove a snake is to sweep it with a broom into a box that can be closed and sealed. Release the unwanted visitor at a site far away from other houses. Do not attempt to grab a snake by the tail; it can easily and quickly strike the hand that is holding it. It is illegal to buy or sell a native snake or snake part in Mississippi. The black pine, eastern indigo, rainbow and southern hognose snakes are listed as endangered in Mississippi and receive special protection. Legal status of species may change, so check with the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries & Parks Museum of Natural Science in Jackson if you have questions or concerns. After all, they do have an important job to do. If you would like more information about snakes, consult Mississippi State University’s Extension Information Sheet 0641, Snakes Alive! How to Identify Snakes. (Editor’s Note: Extension Outdoors is a column authored by several different experts in the Mississippi State University Extension Service.

History

Daily Corinthian â&#x20AC;˘ 3C

Mystery of an old letter has been solved Let me introduce Ruth Ann Phillips, who came through the doors not long ago hoping we could help her with an old letter that had been in the family for years. The letter was addressed to her great-great-grandmother, Neomie E. Crook, of Wayne County, Tenn. The family had Tom deciphered Parson most of the letter, but Park Ranger one elusive word remained a mystery -- the last name of the man who wrote to Miss Neomie. Who was this fella who had written to g-g-grandma? Our first clue -- at the end of the letter he encouraged her to write back in care of Captain Clackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s company of Colonel Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Regiment. So we knew he was a soldier. I had a pretty good hunch of where this was leading so I took a look in the book â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tennesseans in the Civil Warâ&#x20AC;? and sure enough, Ruth and I were on the right track. The names Clack and Brown led us to his regiment, the 3rd Tennessee Infantry, but did nothing to identify the soldier. Looking at his signature it was easy to see the first name was Pleasant but the last name was harder to make out. The last five letters were â&#x20AC;&#x153;nneryâ&#x20AC;? but the first few looked more like chicken scratch than writing. Unsure of the last name, I logged onto a really great website called Fold3.com. We conducted a search of all Confederate Tennessee soldiers with the first name of Pleasant. There was a long list. I never knew Pleasant was such a popular name. Since we knew his regiment, we were able to scroll through the possibilities pretty quickly and bingo! There was our man. A look through his service record, some census reports and a few books and Ruth had the answers to her mystery man. Pleasant H. Tennery was 23 years old in 1861 when he enlisted in Company G of the 3rd Tennessee Infantry. Pleasant signed up alongside his younger brother, Edwin. If he looked anything like his brother, he had a dark complexion, dark hair, hazel eyes and stood 5â&#x20AC;&#x2122; 8â&#x20AC;? high. The 3rd Tennessee Infantry Regiment was organized under a sugar maple tree at Lynnville Station in Giles County, Tennessee, on May 16,

Ruth Ann Phillips shows the old letter sent to her great-great grandmother.

This page comes from Pleasant Tenneryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s service record book. 1861. The next day they traveled by rail to Nashville and camped for the night at the fairgrounds. Colonel John C. Brown was in command of the regiment and he was â&#x20AC;&#x153;a strict disciplinarian, full of the magnitude of the work ahead, and determined that his regiment, composed of picked material, should not be excelled.â&#x20AC;? The new unit moved to a few different camps for training and by September 16, 1861 they found themselves in Bowling Green, Kentucky as part of a growing army. It was here, just two weeks later, that Pleasant wrote to his â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dear Friend,â&#x20AC;? Miss Neomie, to tell her about life in camp. The young soldier penned, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If only we had some of the girls of old Tennessee to sit with us in our camps today and talk about the happy laughs.â&#x20AC;? It was not to be. On the 16th of February, 1862, the Confederate forces inside Fort Donelson surrendered after a short siege and battle. The Tennery brothers were â&#x20AC;&#x153;sick in quartersâ&#x20AC;?

and missed out on the shooting but nevertheless they were captured. They were placed on a steamboat with the rest of the captive army and sent to the Union prison camp at Camp Douglas, Illinois. Pleasant and his brother both recovered from their sickness while in prison and were hale and hearty when they were released in September of â&#x20AC;&#x2122;62. Actually they and the rest of the 3rd Tennessee Infantry were exchanged for Northern prisoners and sent down to Vicksburg on steamboats. By mid-November the exchange paperwork was completed and they were ready to rejoin the army. In no time at all they were back in action. In December the brothers played their part in the defeat of Gen. Sherman at Chickasaw Bayou and then in the spring moved south of Vicksburg to defend against a crossing of the river by Grantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s army. The Confederates could not stop Grant and soon he was on the east side of the Mississippi and marching north to-

ward Jackson. The regiment, all 548 of them, were in the thick of it at the Battle of Raymond. It was a Union victory. When all was said and done, the 3rd Tennessee lost 32 killed, 76 wounded and 68 captured. Among the wounded was Pleasant Tennery. The paperwork is kind of sketchy about his wound other than to say it was â&#x20AC;&#x153;severe.â&#x20AC;? By the time he was healed up, Vicksburg had fallen and the armies had moved into North Georgia. A different Union army, this one led by Gen. William Rosecrans, was headed south out of Chattanooga with his sights set on capturing Atlanta. Do you remember Gen. Rosecrans? He was the victorious Union commander at the Battle of Corinth. A good general needs skills as a soldier and no small measure of luck. It was September of

1863 and Rosecransâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; luck had run dry. The Confederate army under Braxton Bragg gave Rosecrans quite the thumping, in fact it was the greatest victory by the Army of Tennessee during the war. Sadly, it was also the greatest tragedy to befall the Tennery family. On September 20th Pleasant Tennery was killed at the Battle of Chickamauga and Edwin was captured once again. Seeing his brother killed and spending another 17 months in Camp Douglas took the fight out of Edwin. In February of â&#x20AC;&#x2122;65 he asked to take the Oath of Allegiance to the United States and he was allowed to go home. According to a certificate in his service record, he claimed to have been a loyal Union man all along and had enlisted as a Confederate â&#x20AC;&#x153;through false representations.â&#x20AC;? Edwin was permitted

to return home to Pulaski, Tenn., where he once again took up the life of a farmer. He died in Medina, Tenn. in 1920. Oddly, there is an obituary for Edwin in the pages of Confederate Veteran Magazine that claims he was in prison till the end of the war and then walked home to Tennessee. Hmmm, another mystery? In the end Ruth Ann Phillips learned of the mystery man who once knew her g-g-grandma and the rest of us learned the story of two Tennessee boys who might have faded into history were it not for a well-worn, creased and tattered letter. Thanks for sharing, Ruth. (Tom Parson is a National Park Service ranger at the Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center.)

Colorful classroom: Distracting or educational? BY JAYLENE WHITEHURST Columnist

When I sat down to begin fumbling round with words this morning, I was certain about where this column would begin, if not exactly sure what direction it would take. Before I settled in with my coffee and key board, though, I took a minute for a quick Facebook check. Maybe you know how that goes? So much for my planned column. My dear friend Donna, a middle school librarian with a passion for all things educational, had shared a link to a New York Times blog that snagged me and completely derailed my plans. You might want to check out Jan Hoffman’s blog for yourself. Here’s the link to her entry, Rethinking the Colorful Kindergarten Classroom. You read that right. Is it possible that the colorful room is not the best option for learning? Maybe it’s not, especially for children who already have trouble focusing. It’s a thought provoking read for teachers, parents and anyone interested in early childhood: http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2014/06/09/ rethinking-the-colorful-kindergarten-classroom/?_php=true&_ type=blogs&_r=0 When I realized that I’d high jacked Donna’s Facebook thread with three lengthy comments, I knew I had the beginning of an unexpected column, one I was hesitant to dive into because education is not my background. I’ve never been a classroom teacher. What I am, however, is an artist and counselor, an explorer of the differing ways in which we process this experience of being human. I’m curious

But could information-dense kindergarten classroom walls, intended to inspire children, instead be overwhelming? Could all that elaborate décor impede learning? Some experts think so. about and attuned to the impact of our surroundings on how we function in the world. Most significantly, I’m the parent of a former student who struggled throughout his school years with staying focused and completing tasks. The blog snagged me because I’ve thought about the very questions raised in the studies Ms. Hoffman references. I wondered about them when my son was in school, but I never raised them. I lacked the confidence to bring this up to the professionals and, I suppose, I felt it wouldn’t make any difference. As if it were today, I can still hear my young son saying, “Mama, I don’t mean to but I see everything. I can’t help it. There’s so much going on.” It’s no wonder this gripped me. Ms. Hoffman discusses a study of whether the colorful and highly decorated classrooms that have become typical of kindergarten could, in reality, be hindering learning due to the visual distraction, rather than encouraging it. Many classrooms are brightly colored, some decorated with commercially produced posters and educational material, frequently changing bulletin boards, and colorful borders (you know the ones that are corrugated and scalloped and have been around forever). Lots of color, lots of pat-

tern, lots of texture. It’s a big business. Design-wise, it’s also a lot of busy-ness. There’s pressure on teachers about how classrooms should look. Parents may walk in with expectations about the ideal learning environment. Fellow educators may not understand the teacher who opts to provide a less intense atmosphere for students. I’ve thought about what it would be like to be that teacher whose room was more sedate. How is that teacher perceived by colleagues and parents? This is from the blog entry Rethinking the Colorful Kindergarten Classroom: In the early years of school, children must learn to direct their attention and concentrate on a task. As they grow older, their focus improves. Sixth graders, for example, can tune out extraneous stimuli far more readily than preschoolers, the study’s authors noted. But could informationdense kindergarten classroom walls, intended to inspire children, instead be overwhelming? Could all that elaborate décor impede learning? Some experts think so. “I want to throw myself over those scalloped borders and cute cartoon stuff and scream to teachers, ‘Don’t buy this, it’s visually damaging for children!’ ” said Patricia Tarr, an associate professor

at the University of Calgary who researches early childhood education and art education, and was not involved in the study. Dr. Tarr has long railed against the notion of “decorating” a classroom. In a 2004 paper called “Consider the Walls,” published in Young Children, the journal for the National Association for the Education of Young Children, she argued that classrooms could become so cluttered with commercial posters and mobiles that they obscured the children’s own drawings and writings, posing special challenges to any child with attention deficits. Over the years, as a parent and with various jobs I’ve had, I have walked into classrooms that had so much visual activity that it set me, an adult, on edge. Bright primary colors dominated. Complementary colors (those that are opposite on the color wheel) naturally make each other “pop” more intensely, so they compete for attention. My eyes felt the strain. Admittedly, I’m a bit distractible myself, given my quick shift of column topic this morning, but my ability to regulate my response to the stimuli is more mature than a five or six year old. If the visual energy made me edgy, I wondered how a little person could possibly concentrate. No one wants totally colorless classrooms, though. That would be trading one extreme for another; it’s not even realistic. From my perspective as an artist, the key consideration is simply the fact that the eye seeks out spaces to rest. In design, whether in a painting or a classroom, the negative space (the open area)

provides this necessary visual rest. When there is pattern and color everywhere, it actually becomes more chaotic and less visible. A design stands out precisely because of the space around it. We can see it more easily when resting space sets it apart. Thinking back to the classrooms I was in at West Corinth Elementary, I pulled out my class pictures to be sure my memory was accurate. There were bulletin boards, pictures of presidents, writing guides, flip charts, and the like. Most rooms had at least a couple of potted plants. The pictures and charts were few but good quality; there was a sense of continuity and a lack of clutter, especially as the year began. I knew kids before me had sat under that same portrait of George Washington, and in three years my little brother would too. I wouldn’t have thought of any of my classrooms as austere. Maybe they were or maybe they simply had enough resting space. I called what they had a sturdy warmth. One of my earliest art experiences was getting to help put up bulletin boards and then later being allowed to design and post them by myself. Our drawings and class projects were proudly displayed and visible. As the year progressed, more of our work accumulated. Our progress was in view, easily seen. By the time I left each room at year’s end, it had become partly mine. I carry my investment in those early learning spaces with me still. Natural light flooded our space from windows that rose almost to the ceiling. Those windows opened onto a naturally shifting scene. Seasonal

and subtle. They’re the display I remember most. That was another time. A time before lamination and die cuts, back when the mimeograph ruled and stomachs knotted up on test day. There have been changes to how classrooms look since the 1960s, but stomachs still knot up. Children still take with them beyond their school years the images from their classrooms; they carry the emotions that they felt as they succeeded or didn’t, as they belonged or didn’t. Teachers still put more into the sacred task of teaching than seems humanly possible. May our young children and grandchildren learn in surroundings with enough to interest them and not so much as to distract them. May they have space where their unique contributions to the classroom are seen and celebrated, where they feel valuable, and where the unfolding process of learning is the liveliest decoration. May each classroom be a living work of art. (To the teachers in our community, may you have an enjoyable summer break. You’ve earned it.)

Tips on how to control pests in garden, yard, field Every year there are literally thousands of dollars spent on controlling plant pests. These include but are not limited to insects and fungi. These pests may range from your garden, Patrick b e d d i n g Poindexter plants and shrubs, to trees Ag Lines the in your yard. It would be nice if we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to worry about insects and fungi attacking our plants, but that is not the case. We must deal with them. One of the first things a person needs to do is to identify the pest causing the problem. You need to keep in mind that it might not be just one type of insect or fungus, but possibly a combination of pests that are causing the problem. By identify-

ing the problem early, you have a better chance of controlling it. Prevention is usually the best method of preventing problems from even getting started. If you notice your trees or shrubs wilting, leaves turning yellow, twig dieback, or leaf loss, this would merit a closer examination of the plant in question. By recognizing the problem early and doing something about it keeps the damage to the plant at a minimum and lets you begin control measures that can take affect when insects or fungi are at a young growing stage. This is when they are the most vulnerable. When selecting an insecticide or a fungicide to use, be sure to follow the label directions as to its safe use. If it says two tablespoons per gallon, then use just that amount. Guessing only decreases the ability of the insecticide to do its job, plus it could prove dangerous

to the person doing the application. Also check with-holding times if you are spraying vegetables. This will tell you when it is safe to harvest the vegetable in question after you have sprayed it. We are well into the growing season in Alcorn County. I have received calls dealing with a variety of problems thus far this year, most of which have been concerning fungal and insect attacks on plants in the home garden. With the type of weather that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had earlier this spring and over the past several weeks, these types of attacks are common. In order to be prepared and deal with these problems requires a bit of work. This includes having your soil tested and maintaining proper fertilizer levels in and around the plants you are trying to grow. It also means a regular spray schedule to

deal with insect and fungus infestations where needed. Inspect your plants closely and on a regular basis so you can detect any problems early enough to do something about it. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not forget to check the trees in your yard. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to overlook them, and by the time you would notice a problem, it might be too late to do anything about it. Here are some general rules of thumb you need to keep in mind when dealing with pests in the garden, yard or field. â&#x2013; Apply fungicides and insecticides only to plants listed on the label, since not all fungicides and insecticides can be used on all plants. â&#x2013;  When mixing fungicides or insecticides, always measure the amount needed â&#x20AC;&#x201D; donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t guess. â&#x2013;  Store a set of pesticide measuring spoons and mixing containers with your pesticides for ready

accessibility. Have one set for mixing herbicides and another for fungicides and insecticides. â&#x2013; Sprayers previously used for application of herbicides should not be used later for applying fungicides and insecticides. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best to have separate sprayers to avoid plant injury which could result from herbicide residues which are difficult to remove form sprayers. I personally have two â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one labeled for weed killer only and the other labeled for insecticide/fungicide only. â&#x2013;  Many fungicides and insecticides can be mixed together and applied to plants during the same spraying. However, not all are compatible. Check the labels for this information. If you are not sure if the two can be mixed, then donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mix them. This is the best way to avoid the problem. â&#x2013;  Pesticides should be applied only in open, well

ventilated areas and always avoid breathing the fumes and always follow the label and wear appropriate personal protective equipment such as gloves and long sleeve shirt. â&#x2013; If you arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure about the use of a pesticide product, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot better to ask questions before application, not after. (For questions about different plant, lawn, vegetable or tree problems during this growing season, give Patrick Poindexter a call at the Alcorn County Extension Office at 662-286-7755 or you can look up the extension office on the web at http://www.msucares. com. They also have two excellent resources available in the office â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Garden Tabloidâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lawn Careâ&#x20AC;?.

Osborne to headline upcoming Savannah Bluegrass Festival BY NITA RUTLEDGE For the Daily Corinthian

SAVANNAH, Tenn. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Bluegrass music lovers in the Crossroads area and in for a threat during the Fourth of July weekend next month. Wayne Jerrolds, founder and spokesperson for the two-day 36th Annual Savannah Bluegrass Festival, has announced that Bobby Osborne will headline the Saturday night show on Saturday, July 5. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m pleased and excited to bring Bobby Osborne back to Savannah as part of his 50th anniversary tour. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a popular entertainer with his mandolin playing and high lead vocals, and with his 60 plus years in blue-

grass music and all our local bands weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sure to have a great festival,â&#x20AC;? said Jerrolds. Osborneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance in Savannah will be part of his â&#x20AC;&#x153;Celebration Tourâ&#x20AC;?, a year-long tour in honor of his 50th year as a member of the Grand Ole Opry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Opry has been such a big part of my life. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem right to let the year go by without doing something special for it. I know the rest of the guys in the band are excited to a be a part of it as well,â&#x20AC;? said Osborne. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Celebration Tourâ&#x20AC;? started in Kentucky on Bobbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s birthday on December 7, 2013 and continues throughout 2014. Bobby and his brother

Sonny, known as the Osborne Brothers, became members of the Grand Ole Opry on Saturday, Aug. 8, 1964, at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. The brothers performed Ruby that night, one of the most significant and influential songs throughout both the Osborne Brothers and Bobbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career. The duo became the first bluegrass group to perform on a college campus in 1960 and the first bluegrass band to perform at the White House on March 17, 1973, when they performed for President Richard Nixon, his family and members of Congress. In 1994 they were inducted into the International Bluegrass Music

Hall of Fame, bluegrass musicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highest honor. The Osborne Brothers recordings of Rocky Top and Kentucky were named official state songs of Tennessee and Kentucky respectively. Sonny Osborne retired in 2004 but Bobby continues touring with his band, the Rocky Top X-Press. The band consists of his sons, Wynn Osborne, on banjo; Bobby Osborne, Jr., on bass; Joe Miller on guitar and Buddy Griffin on fiddle. In 2009 Bobby was once again inducted into the IBMA Hall of Fame as a part of the Lonesome Pine Fiddlers, an early group he played with, making him the only person inducted into

the Hall of Fame twice. Since going solo in 2004, Bobby Osborne has recorded six CDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s including Bluegrass & Beyond, Bluegrass Melodies, Try A Little Kindness and his latest, New Bluegrass & Old Heartaches. The 36th Annual Savannah Bluegrass Festival will be Friday, July 4, at the Wayne Jerrolds River Park beginning at 6 p.m. and Saturday, July 5, at noon on Courthouse Square Downtown Savannah. The festival is sponsored in part by the City of Savannah, Main Street Savannah, Hardin County Convention and Visitorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bureau and Hardin County. In addition to Osborne, over 20 local and

regional bluegrass bands will perform. The festival is a Heritage Tourism event, dedicated to showcasing and preserving the rich musical heritage of Hardin County, the state of Tennessee and the nation and a great way to celebrate the Fourth of July. The 36th Annual Savannah Bluegrass Festival is a family event and admission is free both days.
