Politicians, vendors get ready Historic Jacinto Fourth of July Festival returns next week BY JEBB JOHNSTON jjohnston@dailycorinthian.com

Politicians and vendors are signing up for next week’s hot ticket in Jacinto. The July Fourth Festival promises the familiar mix of politics, history, arts and crafts, food and old-fashioned atmosphere. After last year’s huge political speaking, a political “off-year” such as this brings more of a laid-back mood to the ghost-town festival. “It’s almost a different crowd on the off years,” said Jacinto Foundation Executive Director Beth Whitehurst. “This year should be a really friendly festival. In the off years, it’s more about the fun, the food and the crafts.” The much lighter slate of political speakers is scheduled to take the stage between roughly 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Local elected officials are always invited, and the festival usually draws prominent candidates for statewide or regional posts. “You either have to be in office or running for office, although you don’t have to be officially qualified,” said Whitehurst. “Haley Barbour came to speak at Jacinto the year before he ran for governor.” Candidates running for office who have confirmed they will appear are U.S. Rep.

A solid month for sales tax revenue across the state gave Corinth its fifth consecutive month of growth. Ten of 11 area municipalities posted gains in their share of sales tax proceeds deposited at mid-June. For Corinth, the total was $472,043.33, a gain of 4 percent, or about $17,000, from the same month a year earlier. With nine monthly deposits received, the current fiscal year’s total is $4.10 million, an increase of 3 percent from the same point in the prior year. For the month, Mississippi cities collectively received $33.07 million, a 3 percent increase from a year ago. The 2 percent tourism tax on prepared food and lodging in Corinth also continued a positive trend. The month’s total was $91,018.36, an increase of almost 10 percent from a year earlier. It is the first June tourism tax deposit to top $90,000. The tourism tax has seen growth in seven of the fisPlease see GAINS | 2

Future car tags can show support for local schools BY BOBBY J. SMITH

“I think it’s a good program and a good, efficient way to raise money and show support for the schools.”

bjsmith@dailycorinthian.com

Alcorn County residents may soon get the opportunity to show some pride in local schools with their car tags. District 2 Rep. Nick Bain said during his time in the state capital he has notice many car tags with local school logos. Bain has filed a bill to allow Alcorn County residents to purchase customized car tags representing all of the local high schools — Alcorn Central, Biggersville,

Nick Bain State representative from Corinth

Corinth and Kossuth. For the customized tags to become a reality, at least 300 of

the tags must be pre-purchased. Once the minimum number is met, the tags will be produced.

From the cost of each tag, $24 will go to local schools. If the minimum number is met and the tags are made, it will raise at least $7,200 for local schools. “I think it’s a good program and a good, efficient way to raise money and show support for the schools,” Bain said. While local school leaders support the project, specific plans are not yet in place for the effort to meet the minimum number of tags. “Rep. Bain asked if we were

interested, and we said we were,” said Corinth Schools Superintendent Lee Childress. “Of course, we’ve yet to decide on a design or talked about selling the tags.” Childress said it will be a good way for the school district to raise money and local school leaders will soon decide how to take the next step. “We’re going to look at it and decide what to do — and how to roll it out to the public,” Childress said.

Retiring educator honored for 51 years of service BY BOBBY J. SMITH bjsmith@dailycorinthian.com

Local and state leaders came together with Northeast in Corinth personnel to honor Nelson Wall — longtime educator and Alcorn County native — on the occasion of his retirement. Wall’s retirement marks the end of a 51-year career in education. For the last five years he has served as the director of Northeast Mississippi Community College’s Corinth facility. “Can you imagine anyone with over 50 years in education?” asked former Northeast President Joe Childers. “According to the Mississippi Public Employees Retirement Service, people ordinarily retire with 31 years of service. Nelson has nearly doubled the 31 years!” Childers paid tribute to Wall’s contribution to local education. “Nelson Wall is an inspiration to everyone,” he said. “He’s a legend and an icon in education. I consider him to be a friend and a great American. He’s done a lot for Northeast.” District 2 Rep. Nick Bain attended the reception and presented Wall a proclamation he wrote with House Speaker

Philip Gunn. The proclamation commends and congratulates Wall during “an epic conclusion to a stellar career in education that has spanned 51 years.” Wall was born in the Rockhill-Fields community of Alcorn County in 1933. He attended Fields Elementary and Farmington High School. After attending Northeast Mississippi Junior College, Wall earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees at Mississippi State University. He also pursued advanced studies at the University of Mississippi, Arkansas State University and Memphis State University. Wall’s teaching career began in 1960 in the Holly community and continued at Kossuth High School. Later he served as assistant principal at Oakland and principal at Alcorn Central High School, before taking another job in education in Arkansas in 1981. In 1992 Wall retired as a school district superintendent in Arkansas. He later returned to North Mississippi and began working initially as Tech Prep coordinator at NEMCC. His other positions at the Booneville campus include administra-

Agency honored for literacy efforts BY JEFF YORK Special to the Daily Corinthian

The Tennessee Education Association (TEA) has chosen the Governor’s Books from Birth Foundation (GBBF) – in partnership with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library – as the recipient of its Friend of Education Award in the organization category. The Friend of Education Award is presented to an outstanding individual and an organization from a list of nominees submitted by local TEA associations throughout the state. “We are honored by the TEA’s recognition of both the Governor’s Books from Birth Foundation and Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library,” said GBBF President Theresa Carl. Each month, Tennessee’s statewide Imagination Library mails a new, age-appropriate, high-

quality book to registered preschool children from birth until age five - at no cost to families and regardless of income. All of the state’s 407,000 children under age five have access to the Imagination Library. “Tennessee is fortunate enough to have statewide participation in all 95 counties in the Imagination Library programs,” Carl added. “Our ‘trinity’ of goodwill – the Governor’s Books from Birth Foundation, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, and the grassroots Imagination Library programs in each county – work together to ensure that all preschool aged children are able to receive their very own book each month.” An increasing amount of research supports the idea that children who grow up around books typically achieve better educational outcomes in school.

Irwin also made a prediction regarding Wall’s retirement. “People are going to want him involved in things,” the mayor said. “This is not the end — it’s the beginning of a new thing — because he’s got so much to offer.”

Capitol displays ‘Singing My Blues’ BY JEFF YORK Special to the Daily Corinthian

McNairy Central High School 2012 graduate Molly Weatherford was honored last week as the winner of the Congressional Art Competition in Washington, DC. U.S. Congressman Marsha Blackburn announced Weatherford as the winner. The winning entry “Singing My Blues” was chosen out of submissions from across Blackburn’s district. Weatherford’s piece will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol for one year. “From great singers and songwriters, to authors and publishers, and artists and supporters, the arts have a dedicated place here in Tennessee,” said Blackburn. “Many outstanding young artists submitted works for this year’s competition. I look forward to displaying “Singing My Blues” in the halls of Congress and congratulate Molly on her success.” Weatherford’s winning painting will be hung in the Cannon Tunnel, an underground passageway

that connects the United States Capitol to the Cannon House Office Building. Members of Congress, and hundreds of American and domestic visitors pass by the exhibit daily. The display is one of the highlights of Capitol tours, and whenever you walk through the passageway, interns and staff guiding guests are sure to point out their district’s piece. The annual art competition is sponsored by the U.S. House of Representatives and recognizes one outstanding artist in each Congressional District. “The Congressional Art Competition is a great opportunity for students to share their creative talents and have the chance to represent their school in our Nation’s Capitol,” said Blackburn. “Tennessee’s Seventh Congressional District is known for its rich artistic history, and I encourage all high school students to participate in this wonderful program.” Last year, over 400 Members of Congress participated, and it is ex-

A view from inside The Supreme Court BY STUART TAYLOR JR. Kaiser Health News

Inside the marble palace, as some justices have called it, the regulars in the Supreme Court bar, and in the news media, all knew that the odds of getting high drama today via health care — the decision, we mean, not the real thing — were maybe one in ten. But they were almost all there anyway. If the health care ruling did come down, it might well be the biggest decision in decades. And these reporters and lawyers would no more take a one-in-10 chance of missing it than play Russian roulette with one bullet in the chamber. Besides, they also knew that a second Big One (immigration), and a third (mandatory life without parole for juveniles), were a lot more likely today, and likely to deliver high drama of their own. The chatter before the justices started talking was about what could be read into tea leaves, such as Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s cheerful demeanor when she alluded to the health care case in recent public remarks. The chatter after was about the angry dissents in those other two cases. But inside the palatial courtroom, the real drama came when the justices were the ones talking. The first to speak at length was Justice Elena Kagan, summarizing her opinion striking down by 5-4 all laws — both state and federal — that mandate sentences of life in prison without parole for certain especially horrible murders by juveniles (as well as adults). Then came Justice Samuel Alito, summarizing at length his dissent — one of three — from what he called a sweeping aside of the laws of a majority of the states, based not on the Constitution but on the whims of five justices. Justice Anthony Kennedy then summarized his opinion striking down by 5-3 three provisions of a notoriously tough Arizona law designed to stem the tide of illegal immigrants into that state. Justice Antonin Scalia summarized his dissent from that one. Justices summarize dissents from the bench only on those unusual occasions when they are fighting mad. And if Alito was smoldering, Scalia was blazing with anger, both at the majority and at the Obama administration, which he accused of refusing either to enforce federal immigration law or to allow border states to protect themselves. It wasn’t over. Reporters got another surprise when they streamed down to the press room after Chief Justice John Roberts had announced that all remaining cases (including health care) would be issued on Thursday. This one was a terse, one-page smack down — again by 5-4 — of the Montana Supreme Court for upholding a state law that the majority saw as unmitigated defiance of the same majority’s 2010 Citizens United decision that corporations have First Amendment rights to spend on political campaigns. Plus, naturally, a dissent by the four liberals, who called for overruling Citizens United. (Kaiser Health News is an editorially independent program of the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, a nonprofit, nonpartisan health policy research and communications organization not affiliated with Kaiser Permanente.)

Prayer for today Dear God, we pray for those facing seemingly impossible and hopeless circumstances. May they find hope in your love and feel your presence today. Amen.

A political glossary for election year Since this is an election year, we can expect to hear a lot of words — and the meaning of those words is not always clear. So it may be helpful to have a glossary of political terms. One of the most versatile terms in the political vocabulary is “fairness.” It has been used over a vast range of issues, from “fair trade” laws to the Fair Labor Standards Act. And recently we have heard that the rich don’t pay their “fair share” of taxes. Some of us may want to see a definition of what is “fair.” But a concrete definition would destroy the versatility of the word, which is what makes it so useful politically. If you said, for example, that 46.7 percent of their income — or any other number — is the “fair share” of their income that the rich should have to pay in taxes, then once they paid that amount, there would be no basis for politicians to come back to them for more — and “more” is what “fair share” means in practice. Life in general has never been even close to fair, so the pretense that the government can make it fair is a valuable and inexhaustible asset to politicians who want to expand government.

“Racism” is another term we can expect to hear a lot this election year, Thomas e s p e c i a l l y Sowell if the public opinion Columnist polls are going against President Barack Obama. Former big-time TV journalist Sam Donaldson and current fledgling CNN host Don Lemon have already proclaimed racism to be the reason for criticisms of Obama, and we can expect more and more other talking heads to say the same thing as the election campaign goes on. The word “racism” is like ketchup. It can be put on practically anything — and demanding evidence makes you a “racist.” A more positive term that is likely to be heard a lot, during election years especially, is “compassion.” But what does it mean concretely? More often than not, in practice it means a willingness to spend the taxpayers’ money in ways that will increase the spender’s chances of getting reelected. If you are skeptical — or, worse yet, critical — of this practice, then you qualify for a different political label:

“mean-spirited.” A related political label is “greedy.” In the political language of today, people who want to keep what they have earned are said to be “greedy,” while those who wish to take their earnings from them and give it to others (who will vote for them in return) show “compassion.” A political term that had me baffled for a long time was “the hungry.” Since we all get hungry, it was not obvious to me how you single out some particular segment of the population to refer to as “the hungry.” Eventually, over the years, it finally dawned on me what the distinction was. People who make no provision to feed themselves, but expect others to provide food for them, are those whom politicians and the media refer to as “the hungry.” Those who meet this definition may have money for alcohol, drugs or even various electronic devices. And many of them are overweight. But, if they look to voluntary donations, or money taken from the taxpayers, to provide them with something to eat, then they are “the hungry.” I can remember a time, long ago, when I was hungry in the old-fashioned sense.

I was a young fellow out of work, couldn’t find work, fell behind in my room rent — and, when I finally found a job, I had to walk miles to get there, because I couldn’t afford both subway fare and food. But this was back in those “earlier and simpler times” we hear about. I was so naive that I thought it was up to me to go find a job, and to save some money when I did. Even though I knew that Joe DiMaggio was making $100,000 a year — a staggering sum in the money of that time — it never occurred to me that it was up to him to see that I got fed. So, even though I was hungry, I never qualified for the political definition of “the hungry.” Moreover, I never thereafter spent all the money I made, whether that was a little or a lot, because being hungry back then was a lot worse than being one of “the hungry” today. As a result, I was never of any use to politicians looking for dependents who would vote for them. Nor have I ever had much use for such politicians.

Obama’s strategy in attacking Romney emerges BY DICK MORRIS AND EILEEN MCGANN The battle of Barak Obama is ending in his defeat. A sagging economy, a likely setback on Obamacare, and sliding job approval are foreclosing the possibility that the president can be re-elected on his record in office. So the battle of Mitt Romney is beginning. It is evident to Obama’s people that only through a negative campaign can they hope to win the election. Their strategy in attacking Romney is becoming clear. It begins with an understanding of the fact that Romney’s major attribute in the minds of the voters and his leading defect are two sides of the same coin. On one side, voters see him as a businessman with vast experience. In a war, they turn to a general. In a deep recession, they turn to a businessman with a record of job creation. But the other side of the coin is that voters feel that Romney is too rich to understand the

problems of the average person. They worry that he lives on another planet and doesn’t grasp what is going on in their lives. Whether or not he can overcome the negative is wrapped up in how people see his tenure at Bain Capital. Does it indicate that Romney is a job creator or a dealmaker? Is he a creature of Wall Street or Main Street? Are his skills at saving businesses or just at making money from them? The perception of his Bain career is far more important to the Romney candidacy than his record as governor of Massachusetts or his various flip-flops on issues. Bain goes the core of his key credential — his business experience. Lose it and he loses everything. If Obama can win the battle of Bain, he can go from there to paint Republican budget cutting plans as the product of a party whose nominee either doesn’t know or doesn’t care about the plight of the average person.

He can depict GOP refusal to raise taxes on the rich as a pander to its backers. And then he can take the campaign to the safe haven of all Democrats: Medicare and Social Security. But if Obama loses the battle of Bain, his attacks on the Republican Party will miss the mark (or miss the Mitt). The House Republicans (as a unit, not as individuals) may be seen as heartless or rigid or dogmatic, but Romney doesn’t sit in the House. Unlike Dole in 1996, he is not responsible for the positions his Party takes in Congress. Nor has he ever embraced voucher alternatives to Medicare without also stressing the ongoing availability of the current system into the indefinite future. Even if Obama scores against the Republican Party as an institution, Romney himself will be seen as an expert who knows his stuff and quietly creates jobs while the politicians fight. If the Republican nominee’s image is deeply rooted in

his successes at Bain, he cannot be characterized as a rich guy making deals and raking in millions. Nor can he be vulnerable to Democratic charges of arrogance and ignorance of the problems of Main Street. Obama opened the battle of Bain with a two-week foray of negative ads depicting a steel worker who had lost his job, pension, and, apparently, his hope as well. It was a moving ad that cries out for rebuttal. The Romney campaign must put ads on the screen that show the opposite of the Obama negative — the success stories of Bain and the ways in which Romney’s skill, intellect, dedication, and hard work produced some jobs and saved others for average American workers.

Lamar House gets unwanted visitors OXFORD — Squirrels love the L.Q.C. Lamar House Museum. The big, majestic trees surrounding the house are home to dozens of squirrels. The squirrels were happy in their wooden homes, until the historic Lamar House received a makeover. “The squirrels basically fell in love with the Lamar House,” said Hollis Green, director of the Oxford Conference Center. Officials say the damage by the squirrels began about two years ago. Green says the squirrels have been working overtime to get inside of the historic home, Green said. “It’s been an ongoing, increasing problem since the renovations,” he said. During renovations, a screen was placed under the roof eaves, which allows the attic to breath. However, it also gives the squirrels an easy access. Green said the cost to repair the home will

Petal School District to reduce costs PETAL — The Petal School District will operate on a budget of $35.4 million this year — up slightly from last year’s budget of $34 million. Superintendent John Buchanan said that the school district will reduce expenses rather than raise taxes to make up the difference. He said the district is getting less state money. Officials said the district saw an increase in property and liability insurance, retirement and teacher salaries. Buchanan said the decision was made to cut spending at the school and department level by 5 percent to 25 percent, depending on need. Buchanan said there will no layoffs.

chase along U.S. Highway 45 in Lee County. Highway Patrol spokesman Warren Strain identified the man as Gerald John Wagner, 40. Strain said an investigation is ongoing. Strain said the chase began in Monroe County when authorities tried to stop Wagner who fled in a green sport-utility vehicle. The pursuit ended in Lee County where a Tupelo police officer deployed a “stop stick” in the highway, which deflated the vehicle’s tires. Strain said Wagner fled on foot from the scene, ignored orders to stop and was fatally shot when he turned toward troopers brandishing a handgun. Strain said during the pursuit, Wagner fired at least four shots at the officers.

Ex-attorney sentenced for embezzlement CANTON — A former Ridgeland attorney who admitted to swindling hundreds of thousands of dollars from his former clients has been sentenced to serve 20 years in prison.

District Attorney Michael Guest said former Ridgeland attorney Vann Leonard received a 40year sentence Monday for embezzling more than $500,000 from several clients that he represented in 2008 and 2009. Twenty years of the sentence was suspended. Leonard has pleaded guilty to misleading two of his former clients between June 2008 and December 2011. Leonard told his clients he’d hold their money in his trust account for legal fees, when he actually spent the funds for his own personal use.

So the indictment claims they used a former employee to apply for the loan and buy the house in 2008.

Choctaw County School Superintendent Glen Beard said that the Justice Department needs more information and time to review the proposal.

Skin cancer accounts for nearly 50% of all cancers combined. Skin cancer is the most commonly diagnosed type of cancer among men and women. Exposure to UV rays through natural and artificial means is the culprit. Since skin cancer is such a common type of cancer, it is advised that everyone examine their skin at home and undergo a yearly clinical skin exam by their doctor.

Sex scandal rocks Air Force base Associated Press

SAN ANTONIO — From a chapel pulpit on Lackland Air Force Base, where every American airman reports for basic training, Col. Glenn Palmer delivered his first order to nearly 600 recruits seated in the pews: If you’re sexually harassed or assaulted, tell someone. “My job is to give you a safe, effective training environment,” Palmer said firmly. What the colonel did not mention directly in his recent address was a widening sex scandal that has rocked the base, one of the nation’s busiest military train-

ing centers. Allegations that male instructors had sex with, and in one case raped, female trainees have led to criminal charges against four men. Charges against others are possible. The most serious accusations surround an Air Force staff sergeant scheduled to face a courtmartial in July on charges that include rape and multiple counts of aggravated sexual assault. The other three defendants were charged with lesser crimes ranging from sexual misconduct to adultery. All of the defendants were assigned to turn raw recruits into airmen in eight weeks of

Lost and Still Lost The people of God seem to be shrinking in number. Why? His people are dying and fewer see a need to obey the gospel and some of God’s people just wander back into the sinful life. Oh! How easy it is just to leave God out of our life. On the other hand, man may do several things and still be lost. We may hear the word of God and still be lost. True of the people in Antioch, “And the next sabbath day came almost the whole city together to hear the word of God. But when the Jews saw the multitudes, they were filled with envy, and spoke against those things which were spoken by Paul, contradicting and blaspheming. And when Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you; but seeing ye have put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles” (Acts 13:44-46). They heard the word of God, but refuse to believe and obey it. Thus, they chose to remain in their sin or lost. How sad!”---the Lord and His angels shall be revealed from heaven. In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ” (2 Thess. 1:7-8). Obedience is faith in practice-submission of heart and life to Jesus Christ. The same was true of Felix a Roman ruler.”---he sent for Paul, and heard him concerning the faith in Christ. And as he - Paul - reasoned of righteousness, temperance-self controland judgement to come, Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time: when I have a convenient season, I will call thee” (Acts 24:24-25). As far as we know, the convenient time never came. He was still lost. Paul had the opportunity to speak to different Roman rulers on his way to Rome-as a prisoner. He taught the King Agrippa. Paul challenged the King with the message of Jesus. “King Agrippa, believest thou the prophets? I know that thou believest. Then Agrippa said to Paul, almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian” (Acts 26:27). The King was so near to becoming a Christian, yet so far away. Jesus said unto the Apostles, “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved but he that believeth not shall be damned” (Mark 16:15-16). Jesus said that is the way one obeys the gospel and the Lord adds the saved to the church. Christ is the Saviour (Acts 4:12). The saved are in the church (Acts 2:47). We can allow things to hinder our obedience to Christ.

basic training. A two-star general is investigating alongside a separate criminal probe, which military prosecutors say could sweep up more airmen. Advocates for female service members and members of Congress have started taking notice. “It’s a pretty big scandal the Air Force is having to deal with at this point,” said Greg Jacob, a former Marine infantry officer and policy director of the Service Women’s Action Network. “It’s pretty substantial in its scope.” Yet there are signs the Air Force still doesn’t have a handle on the full depth of the problem. Staff Sgt. Peter Vega-Maldonado pleaded guilty earlier this month to having sex with a female trainee and struck a plea deal for 90 days’ confinement. Then he acknowledged being involved with a total of 10 trainees — a number previously unknown to investigators. On Friday, after months of embarrassing disclosures, the head of the Air Force’s training command ordered Maj. Gen. Margaret H. Woodward to lead an independent investigation. That same day, the Air Force gave reporters rare access to Lackland’s instructional headquarters in an effort to show there was nothing to hide. The headquarters facility is where Lackland trains the people who train recruits. Inside one small classroom, three women and two men were lectured on the importance of having a moral compass while watching a slide presentation titled “Integrity First.” Lackland has about 475 instructors for the nearly 36,000 airmen who will graduate this year. That’s about 85 percent of what Lackland would consider a full roster of instructors, a demanding job that requires airmen to work longer hours than most for four years, at the expense of family and personal time.

FDA probes safety of metal hip implants

In March, British experts at the world’s largest artificial joint registry told doctors to stop using metal-on-metal hip replacements, citing an analysis showing they have to be replaced more often than other implants. Hip replacements are supposed to last between 10 to 15 years, but more than 6 percent of patients with metal hips needed them replaced after less than five years. That compared with just 2 percent of people who had ceramic or plastic joints. Both types of devices are prescribed for people suffering hip pain and limited movement due to arthritis or injury. British regulators now recommend that people who have the implants get yearly blood tests to make sure no dangerous metals are seeping into their bodies as the components rub against each other. The FDA has not made any recommendations of its own for the estimated 500,000 American patients with the devices. FDA scientists say they want to consider all available information before making their recommendations — not just the data from the U.K. “Why look at a single registry when there’s data from around the world?” said Dr. William Maisel, FDA’s chief scientist for medical devices, in an interview with the Associated Press. “This is an opportunity for us to look at all the available information so that we can have a thoughtful conversation about what clinical recommendations can be made.” Maisel said the FDA is working to combine data from foreign countries and the U.S. to determine which groups of patients and implants are most problematic. On Wednesday and Thursday the FDA will ask a panel of experts to recommend the best practices for monitoring patients with the devices. Some U.S. orthopedic specialists say they have already reached their own conclusions about metal hips. “In my personal opinion there is very little room, if any, for metalon-metal implants because the alternatives we have on the market are likely safer and as effective,” said Dr. Art Sedrakyan, professor of public health at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York.  

WASHINGTON — Metal hip replacements implanted in a half-million Americans may be failing earlier than expected, but it could be years before U.S. health regulators have a clear picture of the problem. The Food and Drug Administration holds a two-day meeting starting Wednesday to scrutinize the safety of metal-onmetal hip implants, following years of patient reports of pain and swelling that sometimes requires removal of the devices. It is a challenging, but familiar, predicament for the FDA: reviewing the safety of a device that was expected to be superior, but which may actually be more dangerous than what came before. For decades nearly all orthopedic implants were made from plastic or ceramic. But in the last 10 years some surgeons began to favor implants made with metal stems and sockets. Laboratory tests suggested the devices would be more resistant to wear and reduce the chances of dislocation. But recent data gathered by surgeons in the U.K. appears to show just the opposite.

WASHINGTON — When it comes to the economy, half of Americans in a new poll say it won’t matter much whether Barack Obama or Mitt Romney wins — even though the presidential candidates have staked their chances on which one would be better at fixing the economic mess. People are especially pessimistic about the future president’s influence over jobs, according to the Associated Press-GfK poll. Asked how much impact the November winner will have on unemployment, 6 in 10 gave answers ranging from slim to none. Yet the candidates, the polls and the pundits agree — the economy is the issue of 2012. Can either man convince voters that he would set things right? James Gray of Snow Hill, N.C., is skeptical. “It doesn’t look to me like the economy or nothing gets better no matter who you’ve got up there,” Gray said. “I don’t know why it is.” A retired policeman, Gray plans to vote for Romney and thinks the Republican might win. But Gray doesn’t have

New-home sales stir optimism WASHINGTON (AP) — Americans bought new homes in May at the fastest pace in more than two years. The increase suggests a modest recovery is continuing in the U.S. housing market, despite weaker job growth. The Commerce Department said Monday that sales of new homes increased 7.6 percent in May from April to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 369,000 homes. That’s the best pace since April 2010, the last month that buyers could qualify for a federal home-buying tax credit. Even with the gains, the annual sales pace is less than half the 700,000 that economists consider to be healthy. Yet the increase follows other signs that show the housing market is slowly improving nearly five years after the bubble burst. Builders are gaining confidence in the market and starting to build more homes. Mortgage rates have plunged to the lowest levels on record, making homebuying more affordable. Prices remain low and have started to stabilize. And sales of previously occupied homes are much higher than the same time last year. Though new homes represent less than 20 percent of the housing market, they have an outsize impact on the economy. Each home built creates an average of three jobs for a year and generates about $90,000 in tax revenue, according to the National Association of Home Builders. One reason prices could rise is the supply of new homes for sale remains extremely low. Just 145,000 new homes were for sale in May. At the current sales pace, it would take 4.7 months to exhaust the May supply. A six-month supply is generally considered healthy by economists. “With no excess inventory of unsold new homes, any sustained rebound in new home sales should quickly translate into firmer prices,” said Steven Wood, chief economist at Insight Economics.

much hope that would improve the economy or help people like him, living on a fixed income. “Every time you go to the grocery store the prices have gone up,” he said. Years of disappointing economic news following the 2007-2009 recession have deflated American optimism. And worries about financial troubles in Europe and congressional gridlock at home hang over the future. Two-thirds of people still describe the economy as poor. And two-thirds expect unemployment to stay where it is or climb even higher over the next year. “Right now it’s so bad,” said Maria Fisher of Timber Pines, Fla. “I wish everything was better.” Fisher, a preschool teacher at the YMCA, said she favors Romney because he’s a Republican and a successful businessman. She’s ready “to give him the chance to fix all these problems,” she said, but doubts there’s much the president can do. Many Obama supporters feel the same way. “The office of the president as a single person doesn’t have as much influence as we generally attribute to them,” said Jeff Guertin, a mechanical engineer in Bedford, N.H., who wants to keep Obama in office. Guertin said a president is limited by Congress’ willingness to go along with his ideas, as well as all sorts of other factors, including world events, that affect whether the U.S. economy grows or shrinks. Asked how much impact the person living in the White House in 2013 will have on the overall economy, 48 percent in the survey say a “great deal” or “a lot.” Fifty percent give answers ranging from “just some” to no impact. Republicans are more likely than Democrats to predict that the winner’s imprint will be felt: 58 percent say the election’s outcome will affect the economy.

Biden told Obama in memo war flawed WASHINGTON — As President Barack Obama considered adding as many as 40,000 U.S. forces to a backsliding war in Afghanistan in 2009, Vice President Joe Biden warned him that the military rationale for doing so was flawed, a new book about Obama’s expansion of the conflict says. The book, “Little America: The War Within the War for Afghanistan,” also says that in planning the drawdown of troops two years later, the White House intentionally sidelined the CIA. Obama purposely did not read a grim CIA assessment of Afghanistan that found little measurable benefit from the 30,000 “surge” forces Obama eventually approved, the book quotes a U.S. official as saying. The Associated Press obtained a copy of the book by Washington Post correspondent Rajiv Chandrasekaran. It will be released Tuesday. A previously undisclosed Biden memo to Obama in November 2009 reflects his view that military commanders were asking Obama to take a leap by adding tens of thousands of forces whose role was poorly defined. Although Biden’s doubts have become well known, the new book details how Biden used a months-long White House review of the war to question the basic premise that the same “counterinsurgency” strategy that had apparently worked in Iraq could be applied to Afghanistan.

Generating yields The Federal Reserve is sticking with its plan to keep short-term interest rates super-low through 2014. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not great news for people who depend on investment income. When the Fed keeps the rates it controls at record lows, rates throughout the economy generally stay low, too. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where utility stocks can come in. They offer an average dividend yield of 4 percent. Utilities are traditionally a haven for investors looking for stability. Utilities enjoy steady customer demand for power regardless of the economy. Plus, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re closely regulated, which means that they rarely offer earnings surprises. Last week, utilities stocks in the Standard & Poorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 500 index hit their highest level since September 2008 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the month that Lehman Brothers declared bankruptcy. Utility stocks are up 58 percent since the market bottomed in March 2009. The run-up means many of the stocks are pricey, MONDAYâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S CLOSE

based on their expected earnings. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trading with an average forward price-earnings ratio â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stock price divided by the earnings per share expected over the next 12 months â&#x20AC;&#x201D; of 15. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s above their 5-year average of 13. A lower ratio suggests stocks are cheaper. But if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; re betting on interest rates staying low, utilities represent a worthwhile wager, says Morningstar analyst Travis Miller. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There could be a lot of room to run for many of the utilities,â&#x20AC;? Miller says. One reason is that utilities borrow to finance infrastructure projects and are the second-largest borrowers behind banks. Low rates means cheap borrowing costs, which reduces the impact on earnings. And low rates means their dividend yields become more attractive. Here are three stocks that Miller says are attractive options for yield-seeking investors:

Alliant Energy (LNT) $44.62 $34 $46 15.0 16.8% 10.8% $1.80 (4.0%) A Wisconsin-based utility holding company that supplies electricity and natural gas throughout the Midwest.

Home prices Home prices rose in March from February in most major U.S. cities for the first time in seven months. Some of that increase was attributed to the start of the spring home-selling season, which traditionally continues through April. Does that mean April saw an uptick in home prices? We find out today when Standard & Poor's releases its S&P/Case-Shiller index of home prices for April.

The Conference Board reveals its index of consumer confidence for June today. The monthly reading has been declining since February, but took a sharp tumble in May. A bleak jobs report for that month and mounting troubles in Europe has heightened concern that economic growth will slow this summer. The latest consumer confidence index is expected to show another monthly dip.

Kentucky’s outspoken men’s basketball coach John Calipari has long championed the talent and depth in the Southeastern Conference — even when the NCAA tournament selection committee didn’t share his optimism. And he’s even more bullish about the league’s future now that Missouri and Texas A&M have made the switch from the Big 12 to the SEC. “Think about what happens now,” Calipari said during Monday’s summer teleconference. “Now we start moving up a notch in where everybody is. I think seven teams in our league

— half of our league — is going to be in the NCAA tournament. That’s what I believe.” Perhaps that is overly optimistic. There’s little doubt, however, that Missouri and Texas A&M add some hardwood flavor to the football-crazy SEC, which has been considered topheavy on the basketball court during recent years. Kentucky finished with a 38-2 record last season and won its eighth national championship, while Florida coach Billy Donovan has usually kept the Gators in the national spotlight after back-to-back national titles in 2006 and ’07. But outside of those two pro-

grams, the SEC’s national reputation is tepid. Only four teams (Kentucky, Florida, Vanderbilt and Alabama) made the NCAA tournament last year. That’s where Missouri and Texas A&M can help. The Tigers, in particular, has a national pedigree in basketball that few programs in the SEC can boast. Texas A&M has also been good in recent seasons, making six straight NCAA tournaments before a down year in 2012. Missouri figures to be competitive immediately in the SEC and should also have one of the league’s best home-court advantages — 15,000-seat Mizzou Arena.

“We have a really good tradition here and we’re excited about what we bring to the table,” Missouri coach Frank Haith said. “I think that we have a really good fan base, a great arena and hopefully we’ll be very competitive in the league.” While Missouri leaves behind some traditional rivalries — most notably its heated homeand-home series against Kansas each season — Haith said he’s intrigued by the possibilities in the SEC. “We leave one power conference for another and I’m excited about the opportunity,” Haith Please see SEC | 9

Byrd suspended 50 games for PED Associated Press

NEW YORK  — Outfielder Marlon Byrd was suspended 50 games by Major League Baseball on Monday after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance. Major League Baseball said the 34-year-old Byrd tested positive for Tamoxifen, which can reduce side effects of steroid use and increase testosterone. It is often used to treat breast cancer patients. “I made an inexcusable mistake,” Byrd said in a statement released by the players’ association. “Several years ago, I had surgery for a condition that was private and unrelated to baseball. Last winter, I suffered a recurrence of that condition and I was provided with a medication that resulted in my positive test. Although that medication is on the banned list, I absolutely did not use it for performance enhancement reasons.” Byrd is currently a free agent, and will be placed on the restricted list for the duration of his suspension, which began immediately. He started the season with the Cubs and was dealt to the Red Sox on April 21. He was designated for assignment by Boston on June 9 and released four days later. “I am mortified by my carelessness and I apologize to everyone who loves this game as I do,” Byrd said. “I will serve my suspension, continue to work hard and hope that I am given an opportunity to help a Club win later this season.” In 2009, Byrd admitted using supplements provided by Victor Conte, the founder of the Bay Area Laboratory CoOperative. BALCO was at the center of a wide-ranging scandal involving performance-enhancing drugs that enveloped several top-level athletes, including Marion Jones, Tim Montgomery and Barry Bonds. Conte pleaded guilty to steroid distribution in July 2005 and Please see BYRD | 9

Venus Williams of the United States tosses the tennis ball to serve to Elena Vesnina of Russia during a first round women’s singles match Monday at the All England Lawn Tennis Championships at Wimbledon, England.

5-time champion Venus Williams falls Associated Press

WIMBLEDON, England — Racket bag slung over her shoulder, resignation written across her face, Venus Williams weaved through fans milling about on the sidewalks that players must traverse to get from Court 2 to the Wimbledon locker rooms. The 32-year-old Williams had just absorbed a lopsided first-round loss at the Grand Slam tournament she once ruled, a poor performance that raised questions about how much longer she will keep playing tennis while dealing with an energy-sapping ill-

ness. She trudged by as her hitting partner, David Witt, was saying: “It’s tough to watch sometimes. I think everybody sees it. I don’t know what else to say.” Looking lethargic, and rarely showing off the powerbased game that carried her to five Wimbledon titles and seven majors overall, Williams departed meekly Monday with a 6-1, 6-3 defeat against 79thranked Elena Vesnina of Russia. Only once before — as a teenager making her Wimbledon debut in 1997 — had Williams exited so early at the All

England Club. She hadn’t lost in the first round at any Grand Slam tournament in 6 1/2 years. Still, Williams said she’ll be at the London Olympics next month and is “planning” to be back at Wimbledon next year. “I feel like I’m a great player,” Williams said, sounding a tad like someone trying to convince herself. She repeated that affirmation as she continued: “I am a great player. Unfortunately, I had to deal with circumstances that people don’t normally have to deal with in this sport. But I can’t be discouraged by

that. ... There’s no way I’m just going to sit down and give up just because I have a hard time the first five or six freakin’ tournaments back.” Later, as part of a slightly testy and awkward exchange with reporters, Williams said: “I’m tough, let me tell you. Tough as nails.” Her loss, in her first match since a second-round ouster at the French Open, was part of an odd Day 1, even if the true tournament favorites in action won easily: Novak Djokovic, Roger FePlease see VENUS | 9

Lawyer: Sandusky insists he’s not guilty Associated Press

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — As Jerry Sandusky insisted through a lawyer Monday that he is not guilty of sexually abusing children, a juror who voted to convict the retired Penn State assistant coach said she hoped the verdict would help his accusers heal. The jury found the testimony of the eight victims who took the witness stand compelling, Ann Van Kuren said Monday. Jurors weighed the accounts and evidence diligently before finding San-

dusky guilty last week of 45 counts for sexually abusing 10 boys over 15 years, she said. She expressed empathy for the eight men who offered emotional and explicit testimony. “I really feel for the victims and any other victims that are out there that haven’t come forward,” Van Kuren said. “That all of them need to heal. I’m hoping that this trial, with this verdict, will help them heal.” The sweeping case rocked the Penn State community

following Sandusky’s arrest in November. The ensuing scandal led to the ousters of Sandusky’s former boss — Hall of Fame coach Joe Paterno — and the university’s president, while forcing a re-examination of the role that college administrators played in reporting abuse allegations. Sandusky, 68, is under observation at the Centre County jail, where he is being kept away from other inmates pending a psychological review that will help determine the next step toward

his sentencing in about three months. “He’s defiant and wants the truth to be told. He wants people to know that he’s not guilty,” said defense lawyer Karl Rominger, who visited his incarcerated client Monday. Also Monday, Judge John Cleland ordered county probation officers to evaluate whether Sandusky is a sexual predator, a finding that could factor into his prison placePlease see SANDUSKY | 9

Hockey labor negotiations about to begin Associated Press

CHICAGO — The head of the NHL players’ union said Monday that negotiations on a new collective bargaining agreement will begin “very quickly” — perhaps as early as this week — and didn’t rule out talks stretching into the season. New NHL Players Association executive director Donald Fehr said negotiations will begin after Wednesday’s meeting of the NHLPA’s executive board, though he did

not specify a date. He was in Chicago for three days of union talks. The NHL canceled the 2004-05 season before a labor deal was reached that included a salary cap for the first time. That agreement expires on Sept. 15. Fehr was asked whether a work stoppage was inevitable. “None of that is coming from our side,” he said. “That’s the first thing. Secondly, we have not made a proposal. We haven’t heard

an owners’ proposal.” He also shrugged off concerns about having a deal in place by the time the season begins. “There’s nothing magic about Sept. 15. The law is that if you don’t have a new agreement, and as long as both sides are willing to keep negotiating, you can continue to play under the terms of the old one until you reach an agreement,” he said. Asked if that could happen in this instance, Fehr said,

“All I know is that in baseball, there were any number of occasions in which we played while the parties were continuing to negotiate.” A work stoppage, he said, would be a “last resort.” “The problem that we’ve had in the salary-cap sports going back 20-plus years now is that in many instances, historically — I’m not saying it’ll be true this time — a lockout has been the negotiaPlease see NHL | 9

said. “I think being in the Southeastern Conference — obviously Mizzou is a national brand and we can recruit nationally — but I think there’s no question it does open some doors in the Southeast from a recruiting standpoint.” The addition of Missouri and Texas A&M isn’t the only issue for the SEC, which will officially admit the two universities on July 1. Other topics on the summer teleconference: — The NCAA’s new rule changes for basketball were widely praised by the league’s coaches. The governing body de-regulated contact with recruits during the summer months, allowing for unlimited calls and text messages. “Any time you open up the lines of communication, that’s a healthy thing,” Florida coach Billy Donovan said. The NCAA also now allows coaches to spend eight hours per week on the court with players enrolled in summer school. For new coaches in the league like South Carolina’s Frank Martin, Mississippi State’s Rick Ray and LSU’s Johnny Jones, it’s allowed a little extra time to get familiar with personnel. ■ Kentucky begins its quest for a second-straight national championship with an almost completely overhauled roster. Stars from last year’s team — including Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Marquis Teague, Terrence Jones and Doron Lamb — have left for the NBA, but Calipari has reloaded with some of the nation’s most highly regarded freshmen, including Nerlens Noel, Alex Poythress, Archie Goodwin and Willie Cauley. “You won’t believe this, but we’re going to be really young,” Calipari deadpanned. “... What I’ll tell you is, I like my team. I think we’ve got good players, good kids.” ■ Some SEC coaches believe the escalating number of Division I basketball transfers needs to be addressed. NCAA president Mark Emmert recently said that 40 percent of all Division I players transfer before their junior season, the highest percentage of any sport. Both South Carolina’s Martin and Auburn coach Tony Barbee said the problem begins before college, when elite players often transfer between high schools and AAU programs. Barbee said a culture has been formed that allows players to “run from their problems” when there is adversity.

derer, Maria Sharapova. Among those sent home were sixth-seeded Tomas Berdych, the 2010 runnerup at Wimbledon; 11thseeded John Isner; No. 16 Flavia Pennetta; and No. 18 Jelena Jankovic, who was rather easily beaten 6-2, 6-4 by Kim Clijsters, a four-time major champion who has been beset by injuries in her last season on tour and, like Williams, is unseeded. Other seeded losers: No. 23 Andreas Seppi, No. 24 Marcel Granollers and No. 27 Daniela Hantuchova of Slovakia, who was upset by 100th-ranked Jamie Hampton of the United States 6-4, 7-6 (1). Truth be told, the biggest surprise might very well have been the way Isner — the highest-ranked American man — blew a match point, wasted a twosets-to-one lead, dropped a tiebreaker on grass, and bid a 6-4, 6-7 (7), 3-6, 7-6 (7), 7-5 farewell to Wimbledon in the first round against 73rd-ranked Alejandro Falla of Colombia. Then again, there’s a pattern here. It’s the third consecutive major tournament that Isner leaves after a five-set loss, including 18-16 at the French Open against 261st-ranked Paul-Henri Mathieu. This from a guy who’s best known for winning the longest match in tennis history, 70-68 in the fifth after more than 11 hours, against Nicolas Mahut at Wimbledon in 2010. “I didn’t put my opponent away. I had my chances, and I didn’t do it.

SANDUSKY It’s all on me. Was just not great on my part,” said the 6-foot-9 Isner, who hit 31 aces to Falla’s four. “I get out there sometimes, and lately it’s happening quite a lot, and I get out there in the match and I’m just so clouded. I just can’t seem to figure things out. I’m my own worst enemy out there. It’s all mental for me, and it’s pretty poor on my part.” Mental strength has long been viewed as Ernests Gulbis’ weakness, because his strokes are as good as they come, but the 23-year-old from Latvia who is ranked 87th stood tall in a 7-6 (5), 7-6 (4), 7-6 (4) victory over Berdych. “A lot of players mature later than others. Some mature at 15; some mature at 29. I hope it’s somewhere in between; 23 is OK,” Gulbis said. “If I hit the ball well, I hit stronger than everybody else. It is like this, you know. Maybe only couple guys hit the ball as strong as I do.” Used to be that Williams could say that when comparing herself to other top women. She and her younger sister Serena rewrote the way the game was played in the late 1990s and early 2000s, with 120 mph serves and ferocious forehands. But Williams hasn’t been that player for quite a while now. She announced in August that she had been diagnosed with Sjogren’s syndrome, an autoimmune disease that can cause fatigue and joint pain.

ment. Such orders are pro forma in sex abuse cases. Sex offenders are required to undergo treatment while in prison, so Sandusky, if deemed a predator, would likely be sent to a facility with such a program. Sandusky, who has been placed under a suicide watch, said he doesn’t want to kill himself and wants to get the separate psychological examination done so that he can receive visits from his friends and family, Rominger said. “He’s fine but he’s just not been evaluated,” the lawyer said. “He is very disappointed to be in prison. He is anxious to get out of this suicide watch,” Rominger said, adding that Sandusky told him: “If I have to keep sitting in this room for another three or four days without being able to talk to anybody, I might start to need help at that point.”

NHL The state investigation into Sandusky didn’t begin until after the ex-coach was barred from a high school in 2009, when a mother complained about the former coach. At the time, Gov. Tom Corbett was the state attorney general. Charges were filed in November 2011. Investigators took into account Sandusky’s status as a celebrated assistant coach in building the case, Corbett said Monday when asked in Harrisburg why charges weren’t filed after the first accuser came forward. “If it’s one-on-one and now put the celebrity status in, put (that) Jerry Sandusky is loved by everybody ... how can anybody say there must be something wrong,” Corbett said. “You’d better corroborate it, and that’s what they started doing. They started pulling strings and gathering and gathering and gathering, and that’s my experience. You build those cases, as well as you can.”

tion strategy of choice,” Fehr added. “It’s unfortunate because it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Hopefully, that’s not going to be true this time.” The league declined comment. Fehr said he expected 40 to 60 players to attend the meetings, and some of the game’s biggest stars were in attendance on Monday, including Washington’s Alex Ovechkin and Chicago’s Jonathan Toews. “I think everybody has to be involved,” Ovechkin said. “It’s our lives.” Toews said, “I think it’s important for all of us.” He called it a “learning process,” particularly for players who were not around for the lockout, and he senses an urgency to reach an agreement. “I don’t see why not,”

he said. “That’s obviously what everyone wants.” Commissioner Gary Bettman said during the Stanley Cup finals last month that he believes the labor scene is different this time around. One big change is that the players are now being led by Fehr, the former head of the powerful baseball union. Fehr is working with a group that was in disarray following the lockout and went through several changes in leadership including a scandal that led to the demise of former executive director Ted Saskin, who was accused of ordering spying of player e-mail. Fehr was brought in as an adviser before becoming the union’s head about a year and a half ago. He has since spent time catching up on hockey and his members’ needs. He has been having informal discussions with Bettman for some time.

BYRD CONTINUED FROM 8

served four months in jail. Byrd said the supplements were all OK to use under MLB rules. He had never before been suspended for failing an PED test. He hit .210 in 47 games with the two teams, though he hit .270 with a homer and seven RBIs in 34 games with Boston. The Red Sox picked him up when they had a shortage in the outfield after a rash

of injuries. “He played here and he played well,” Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said. “I had no indication or I don’t think anyone did.” The 34-year old has played for five teams in 11 major league seasons and is a career .278 hitter. Byrd finished fourth in the National League Rookie of the Year voting in 2003 with the Phillies and was a National League All-Star with the Cubs in 2010.

Book should be focus when serious readers meet DEAR ABBY: “Pennsville, N.J., Reader” (May 15) complained that her book club members don’t always read their current book and want to socialize instead. I can add nothing to your thoughtful answer. Still, her letter troubles me. As you know, literacy is under siege in America, and many people can’t follow the directions on a box of cake mix. Years ago, I heard Margaret Mead speak. She warned us against turning into a “machine-worshipping society,” and that is precisely what we have become. It’s killing off a part of our brains. We are wired to electronic messaging most of the time, at our peril. Reading serious books helps to reclaim our brains.

E a c h m e m ber of my group has a voice in selecting the book. Abigail Most of Van Buren us do read the Dear Abby monthly selection, and the moderator -friendly but firm -- keeps us on track with our discussions. No one ventures too far afield, ever. If someone comes to the meeting and hasn’t read the selection, she simply listens and takes notes while the others discuss the designated chapters. I feel strongly that if anyone wants to socialize instead, he/she should arrange and host their own meetings at home

and make it clear that the gathering is a social chat. -- BOOK CLUB MEMBER IN NEW YORK DEAR BOOK CLUB MEMBER: Readers agree that the reading and socializing should be kept separate and were quick to offer solutions to the problem of mixing the two. Read on: DEAR ABBY: For years, I have led three book groups in three different states. Our monthly meetings are two hours long; the discussions are 60 to 90 minutes. Socializing comes afterward. We choose books by ballot, voting from a list submitted by members. Each member leads discussions on a rotating basis of a book that particularly piques their interest. If the non-readers of

the group mentioned in the letter (who should not be attending a book group just to socialize) were discussion leaders, they would read the book. If they choose to attend without reading, they should remain quiet during the discussion and wait to socialize later. Give those lazy nonreaders a task! -- SERGEANTAT-ARMS IN SOUTH DAKOTA DEAR ABBY: I have discovered the joy of audio books. Most of them are classics long out of copyright, but classics are classics because they are good. My local library has a way to access current books by best-selling authors. I get all of these treasures on my cellphone and listen to them no matter where I am or

what I’m doing. Being “too busy” is no longer an excuse for not being well-read. I’ll bet the women in that club would get with the program if they were introduced to audio books. -- WIRED BOOKWORM, STILLWATER, OKLA. DEAR ABBY: Here’s how our club handled the problem of members not reading the books: We started charging $5 for failure to do it. The money is held by our unofficial treasurer, and every summer it is used to pay for meals during our yearly summer outing. It’s a simple system that has cut down on people not doing the assigned reading. --BOOK-CLUBBER, TOO DEAR ABBY: Our group has every member take a

turn to host for a month. The leader chooses the book we read and leads the discussion. Once this plan was adopted, several people dropped out. But we have now grown to 18 members and have a waiting list, so we must be doing something right. Sure, there will be books not everyone cares for, but variety is what a book group is all about. Socializing is fun, but being a member of a book group is about reading. -LYNN IN LILBURN, GA

30, 24, 1, 26 and 39. ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: “I’m a Scorpio (11/18/75) who would like to get back with my old boyfriend (11/3/75), but I’m also attracted to someone new (11/19/73). Are you seeing the pattern here?” Loving the honesty that other Scorpios can bring to a relationship is not such a rare pattern. On a physical level, you are so completely comfortable with Scorpios like yourself that right now you don’t see the point in venturing beyond your sign. Your tenacious Taurus moon suggests that when something is working well for you, you dig in your heels and repeat the pattern. Scorpios help stabilize the contradictions in your highly mysterious and power-oriented nature. You’re stronger and more complex than most of those around you. Another powerful personality equalizes the inner pressure of the strong urges within you. Your first boy-

friend comforts you. His nature is centered and peaceful, which helps you handle the inner turmoil you’re currently going through. Your new love interest shares your moon, Mercury, Venus and Pluto signs. Scorpio sun/Taurus moon is unpredictable in relationship matters. Give this relationship a chance. CELEBRITY PROFILES: As Cat Valentine of Nickelodeon’s “Victorious” series, Ariana Grande is a whimsical inhabitant of her own little world. Grande’s sun and Mercury in Cancer suggests it’s easy for her to intuitively relate to the characters she plays, as well as the real people she meets. But her grounded Venus in Taurus promises that her personality is more down-to-earth than the character she’s made so popular.

Horoscopes BY HOLIDAY MATHIS Neptune is a higher octave of Venus, taking her embodiment of beauty, harmony and romance and lifting it to the spirit realms. Neptune is all dreams, poetry and rivers of collective consciousness stocked with the symbols and colors that give life meaning. These two retrograde planets challenge one another, and us, to declare what’s real. ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’re observant and curious about interactions regardless of whether or not they involve you. In fact, you best interpret how others are feeling by the way they look when they are not interacting with you. TAURUS (April 20May 20). Your powers of reason will be put to excellent use. You’ll calm someone with logic -- maybe yourself. You’ll solve a problem or prove a postulate, putting everyone at ease. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Wealth is transient.

Some have built riches over a lifetime only to see the next generation dwindle the funds down to nothing. Realizing the temporal nature of riches, you’ll spend yours in a way that makes you happy. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Others know your beauty because they can stand back and take in the entire picture of you -- or at least the picture from their angle. You’re too close to observe yourself, so believe their compliments. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There’s nothing wrong with being silly. In fact, you’ll create something so right by connecting with another person in a shared bit of inanity. The human condition can be quite absurd, indeed! VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You are not the only one allowed to write on the blank page of your life. Sometimes people take their own pen and start scribbling. You will take those lines and make something beauti-

ful out of them. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll revisit a scenario from last week. This is not a rerun in which the lines are predictable and the outcome is the same. This is more of a do-over. The outcome is up to you. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll do your best work while sleeping. Your mind’s poetry will weave associations as beautiful as they are nonsensical. Keep a notebook and pen next to the bed, and jot down your impressions immediately upon waking. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Those who do not readily say “thank you” are perhaps not as mindful of your contribution as they might be. You’re much more likely to give to those who know how to receive graciously. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Style and technique figure into your success in a big way today, so don’t be afraid to spend the bulk of your

time making things exactly what you want them to be. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18). You have a strong need for an audience, and you’ll attract a decent one. What they lack in numbers they’ll have in heart. People want to be involved with you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are so giving and open-minded now that the necessity of personal boundaries may not occur to you. Draw some anyway. Later, you’ll be glad you did. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 26).

Today in history Today is Tuesday, June 26, the 178th day of 2012. There are 188 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History On June 26, 1912, Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 9 in D major premiered in Vienna more than a year after the composer’s death; Bruno Walter conducted the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra.

On this date In 1483, Richard III began his reign as King of England (he was crowned the following month at Westminster Abbey). In 1870, the first section of Atlantic City, N.J.’s Boardwalk was opened to the public. In 1911, John J. McDermott became the first American-born golf player to win the U.S. Open, played in Chicago. In 1936, President Franklin D. Roosevelt was nominated for a second term of office by delegates to the Democratic national convention in Philadelphia. In 1945, the charter of the United Nations was signed by 50 countries in San Francisco. In 1948, the Berlin Airlift began in earnest after the Soviet Union cut off land and water routes to the isolated western sector of Berlin. In 1950, President Harry S. Truman authorized the Air Force and Navy to enter the Korean

conflict. In 1963, President John F. Kennedy visited West Berlin, where he famously declared, “Ich bin ein Berliner” (I am a Berliner). In 1973, former White House counsel John W. Dean told the Senate Watergate Committee about an “enemies list” kept by the Nixon White House. In 1987, Supreme Court Justice Lewis F. Powell Jr. announced his retirement, leaving a vacancy that was filled by Anthony M. Kennedy. In 1988, three people were killed when a new Airbus A320 jetliner carrying more than 130 people crashed into a forest during a demonstration at an air show in Mulhouse, France. In 1990, President George H.W. Bush went back on his “no-new-

taxes” campaign pledge, conceding that tax increases would have to be included in any deficit-reduction package worked out with congressional negotiators.

Ten years ago The Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools was unconstitutional because the words “under God” had been inserted by Congress in 1954. (The U.S. Supreme Court overturned the decision in 2004 on a technicality.) The Group of Eight nations, meeting in Canada, announced that Russia would be made a full-fledged member of the elite group. Chinese basketball star Yao Ming was selected first overall by the Houston Rockets in the NBA draft.

The busy evening ritual around our house Most folksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; evenings take a certain form. Mine has been extra busy since Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s operation on his rotator cuff. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doing great, but when that shoulder gets jarred, he can still feel exquisitely painful ouchiness. However, he began rehab last Wednesday, and I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be surprised if heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back on his horses in just a month or two. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hoping! Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been such a trooper all through these hard weeks. And most of the time, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve enjoyed the evening chores. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s insisted on going down to the barn with me from the very first (I absolutely could not stop him) and helping out onehanded. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be dishing out the horsesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; dinners into their gaily colored buckets (red for Charlie,

yellow for Indian Summer, blue for Blue), varying amounts Ryland of corn Bruhwiler and oats and sweet Columnist feed (depending on how fat or skinny each horse is) plus special salts and minerals (the horses eat better than we do) while I use a little brush to sweep up the rat poop from the horsesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mangers. (The nasty critters sneak in when the barn is empty to feast on leftover grains -- and leave behind what looks like grains of black rice. Yuck!) Then I shovel out the much larger horse poop into the wheelbarrow and fill their water buckets

and empty the wheelbarrow into the enormous poop pile (letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s call it compost). And here comes the grand finale: Opening the barn door nice and wide to let the big guys enter. Even after all these years, I still find it quite a drama. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just mosey in. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hungry. And during this part of the summer, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re nearly desperate to escape the horseflies that buzz nonstop around their sweating selves and land and bite. So they move intently, swinging their great bodies on those powerful haunches, their faces focused on getting to their dark stalls where few flies follow and where they know their dinnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s waiting. But always thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s some

jostling among the three as they crowd into the passageway, some head tossing, eye rolling, ears laid back if only briefly, the possibility that one will suddenly decide to check out anotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stall (to see if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting more or better feed). Then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be two big bodies in one way-toosmall a stall, the scuffling sounds of fancy footwork, and one or the other suddenly scoots back out into the hall, a thousand pounds of irritated jitters. They settle down to serious munching, a steady, peaceful rhythm, as John and I bolt each door, call the dogs, and head off on a trek through the fields to get our evening exercise â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and to pick a few blackberries. Every month has its own character, and wild blackberries

just about make June for me. We have two scrubby patches whose berries are small and tart, not at all like store-bought plumpers. But it feels like Christmas â&#x20AC;&#x201D; better! â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to get this freebie from the land night after night. We pick a handful and eat them as we walk. Or take little plastic containers and get enough to add to a cold bowl of cereal next day. Then home again, home again, and John takes the dogs inside for their dinner while I water. And here may I say quite devoutly: Thank goodness for garden hoses. I love the sound of the stream of water splashing on my potted plants, on the ferns that are struggling in the summer heat, and, just lately, on the veggies that are wilting in this drought. That means

watering each tomato, each zucchini, each pepper plant and so on, one by one, and sometimes I get impatient. But I can almost sense in my own body the relief those fellows must be feeling as that cool water reaches their roots. Meanwhile, of course, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m keeping an eye out for veggies that are just right for plucking, fill a bag, and, most nights, chop and toss them right into the pan for a simple stirfry. Yes, evenings around our house are rather busy. But they sure are blessed. (Ryland Bruhwiler lives on a farm in McNairy County, Tenn.

Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true colors emerge as world ends in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Seeking a Friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, R, ***,Steve Carell, Nancy Carell, Keira Knightley, Melanie Lynskey, Rob Corddry, Patton Oswalt; Focus Features; Director Lorene Scafaria; length â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 101 minutes â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seeking a Friend for the End of the Worldâ&#x20AC;? does not waste time getting to the point. We know as soon as the movie begins the world is about to be destroyed by an asteroid large enough to complete the job. It is right in line to take the earth out in three weeks. The government tried to destroy the asteroid but to no avail. It looks like the end is nigh. What would we do if this situation was thrown in our path? (Pun intended.) Would we taste all the pleasures

and sins we have avoided so far? Maybe we would try to make Terry a m e n d s Burns w i t h old enMovie Critic emies and friends? In Dodgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case (Steve Carell), he does not see any point in doing his job. Since his job is selling life insurance, I am sure we all agree with the decision. Dodgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife leaves him immediately to spend time with her true love. Riots break out and the worst in people raises its evil head. Some people still try to do the right thing. Some look for relatives, friends and acquaintances in order to make

amends. Would it not be better to take care of this before the end ... ends us? I think it would be much more sincere, but on the other hand, it is best to get the past in order before it is too late â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Better late than never.â&#x20AC;? Dodge meets Penny (Keira Knightley). She is a little on the free spirit side â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to say the least. Dodge and her lived next door for years and are just now officially meeting. A letter belonging to Dodge was delivered to Penny by accident years ago. The letter is from Dodgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old girlfriend. Penny gives the letter to Dodge. After a few dangerous adventures, Dodge and Penny become friends and decide to take a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Road Trip.â&#x20AC;? They each have their own reason.

         

 

Terry Burnsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; movie ratings Rock of Ages, PG-13, ***1â &#x201E;2 Prometheus, R, *** Snow White and the Huntsman, PG-13, **** Men in Black III, PG13, ***1â &#x201E;2, The Avengers, PG13, **** The two are truly looking for a way to wash away troubles and pain on the road to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shambala.â&#x20AC;? Gratefully, they find some kindred souls along the way. They also find some not so kindred. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just say the good outweighs the bad in this case. Dodge is looking for his first love, and Penny wants to fly home to see her parents. So they have

something to bind them together. Helping each other makes living with the future catastrophe a little easier to bear. Do we always find the answers we are looking for? To semi-quote the Rolling Stones, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always get what we want, but if we try sometimes we just might find we get what we need. An unusual surprise actor appears toward the end of Dodgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Pennyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s journey. I found the scenes with this actor made it worth sitting through some of the craziness at the beginning of the movie. The actor brings meaning and structure to the movie. I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t impressed with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seeking a Friend for the End of the Worldâ&#x20AC;? at the beginning, but be-

gan enjoying it more the farther it got into the movie. It eventually develops into a meaningful lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s journey. The dark storyline redeems itself with the message during the last few minutes of the movie. Of course, it had to take the dark route in order to find the light at the end of the tunnel.
