Woman dies when truck rolls over her BY JEBB JOHNSTON

Power outage A construction company crew hauling heavy equipment into the former Liddon Lake area off U.S. 72 in Corinth struck utility lines and destroyed a power pole just before noon Saturday, causing a widespread power outage to the east side of town, including much of the business district along the highway. An Alcorn County Electric Power Association crew responded to the scene and had power restored to much of the area in about 40 minutes. With temperatures past 100 degrees, the ACE crew remained on the scene most of the afternoon clearing lines that fell on the heavy equipment and began making repairs to the pole.

A Corinth woman was killed at her home Saturday afternoon when a truck began to move and rolled over her. Coroner Jay Jones said the accident victim was Juanita Rogers, 81, of 502 Walnut Circle. It happened about 2:30 as Rogers and her sister were unloading potting soil from a truck. Jones said the truck was located on an incline and it began to move, rolling on top of the woman. Jones said the two women had spent the day together before the tragic accident. Memorial Funeral Home will have the arrangements for Rogers.

H. Lee Smith II, now age 42, credits much of his continued recovery from colon cancer to the dedicated support of his parents, Harold P. and Vonceil Smith.

Colon cancer at age 40? It could happen to you ... BY MARK BOEHLER

“You have a tumor and it’s cancerous.” A mother and father stood beside their hurting son in the emergency room at Magnolia Regional Health Center. Deadly colon cancer? Their son was still in his prime at 40 years old. There was shock and disbelief. The words came that September day in 2010 from Dr. Matt Johnson, a respected and highly regarded surgeon at Magnolia. The parents looked toward the surgeon, who said he was 98 percent certain their son had colon cancer. “I never did cry, but my knees got weak,” said the mother. “But I had faith everything was going to be OK.” She wished and then told Dr. Johnson she so hoped he was wrong. “How do you know?” the father asked. Dr. Johnson knew. And he was right. The patient was in so much pain, he said later, he didn’t

fully absorb the diagnosis. The patient was knocking on death’s door. He needed help. And he needed it quickly. ■■■

H. Lee Smith II grew up in Corinth, graduating from CHS in 1988. He always loved sports and always had a passion for keeping statistics. Wiffle ball participants in his own backyard from within a long home run shot at today’s high school campus always knew their batting averages and on base percentages. Young Lee used his parents’ old checkbook deposit tickets as scorebooks. He shared the love for sports with his parents, Vonceil and Harold P. Smith. Dad was an educator for 381⁄2 years before retirement in 1999. For many of those years, Harold P. was the principal at CHS. Vonceil grew up in a sports family. She also loves kids. For 27 years, Vonceil ran a day care in her home for teachers’ school-aged kids. Lee went on to Ole Miss, graduating in 1993 with a B.S. degree in business. But the business he most

enjoyed was sports. He began covering games for the Daily Corinthian in August, 1993. It wasn’t long before he was hired as sports editor at the local newspaper in June 1994, a position he holds today. The sports editor earned some accolades along the way from his peers in the Mississippi Press Association and Associated Press Managing Editors Association, both professional newspaper organizations. He once wrote the obituary of Colonel Reb long before the iconic symbol really died at Ole Miss, then ruffled many feathers in the Rebel Nation when he stated Peyton Manning had no good reason to be in Oxford on game day, unless to play against the home team. The sports journalist has written hundreds of accounts of local high school sports games, from hapless teams trying to get a first victory to those playing for state championships.

Easom School supporters met Saturday to review recent progress at the school campus. The Easom Outreach Foundation Board of Directors convened for its annual meeting Saturday morning along with interested community members. The group gave a round of applause to inmates who have provided labor for painting, floor replacement and other work to help get the campus’ initial community service programs going at a very low cost. “If I had to put a number to all of the stuff that we’ve done, including labor, I’d say $40,000,” said Samuel Crayton, board president. “And it has cost us $8,500.” One of the inmates did two wall paintings of the Easom yellow jacket, and another replaced floor tile, adding the lettering of “Easom.” Also, a mural is being painted in the gym. “These guys have done wonders,” said Crayton. “They enjoy coming here.” The former school building took on its first community service role June 4 when it opened as a site for the Summer Feeding Program of the Corinth School District and has seen av-

Evelyn Webb has been working with the volunteers who carry out the program on the school campus each day. “We have built a solid volunteer team,” she said. “We find as we are making calls throughout the community that everyone is very interested and has pride and hope in the fact that we are trying to take over the building, restore it, and have it for community use. And everybody has suggestions about things we could do.” Please see OUTREACH | 5A

Jacinto brings out the sweat BY JEBB JOHNSTON

Jacinto is ready to host another day of history, politics, Indian dances, food and crafts. Like many locals, Jacinto Foundation Executive Director Beth Whitehurst has been keeping an eye on the sultry weather forecast. It appears a slight cooling will greet Wednesday’s festival with a high temperature of about 97 under clear, sunny skies. But it wouldn’t be a proper Jacinto fest without a bit of sweat. “This is not new,” said

Whitehurst. “We’ll have a lot of vendors selling drinks, and people can bring coolers with them as long as it’s not alcoholic.” Festival-goers can get a break from the heat in the revamped museum and gift shop, where the museum has been given more prominence with exhibits of old farm tools, medical equipment and town life. “We’re trying to show the town life and farm life, because it was primarily a farming Please see FESTIVAL | 3A

1990s through today and he can recite the year and touchdowns they scored, or the points per game average on any given year, including free throws or three pointers. But through it all, there was an important statistic the sports editor neglected, he now admitted. His health. The recognizable H. Lee Smith II byline fell from the sports pages of the Daily Corinthian as the journalist took on his biggest challenge. The game of life. ••• Lee Smith’s pain and gastro troubles went on for a couple of years. He took a steady diet of Pepto-Bismol, but it was no cure of the road ahead. Lee easily talks sports, but not more serious subjects, like colon cancer. “I thought it was nerves,” said Lee, now age 42, about his stomach cramps, lower rectal pain, and other gastro issues since May of 2009. “I thought I had an upset stomach all the time,” added Lee, a single father with one son he adores, McCartney, who just turned 10. “Cart” is a sports junkie who can already write game accounts on his favorite teams, the Corinth Warriors, Ole Miss Rebels, Atlanta Braves and Dallas Cowboys. “There was always pressure in my rectum,” added Lee. “I was thinking ulcer and nerves, but it turned out to be something more serious.” As the pain got worse, Lee scheduled a colonoscopy. As he prepped for the procedure — one has to drink a gallon of hor-

er created some surgery postponements, Lee eventually had a foot of colon removed in addition to the tumor. Doctors performed an ileostomy, a bypass of the small intestine and much more serious than a colostomy, said his father. After eight days in the hospital, it was back to chemotherapy and Lee was placed on the chemo pump. A milestone happened on March 15 when the sports editor returned to work with the belief it was better on Lee’s mind to turn out sports stories than go on the long-term injury list, said his parents.

rible tasting, thick, human flush — things went south. All the liquids went in, but nothing came out. “I was miserable. I couldn’t even move. The pain was terrible,” Lee explained about the dreadful day nearly two years ago. “He got sicker by the minute,” added Harold P. Enter a quick trip to the ER at MRHC and the examination by Dr. Johnson, who didn’t have to enter but 2 inches inside Lee’s rectum to find a tumor the size of a golf ball, no sports pun intended. Lee had to put his game face on. In this life-changing event, he had no playbook. “He was going to die and he needed help quickly,” said Vonceil.



Just a day removed from the scheduled — and long overdue — colonoscopy — Lee took an ambulance ride and then underwent emergency surgery at Baptist Memorial (formally East) Hospital in Memphis for doctors to remove the fluids. The colostomy was the first of many surgeries, procedures, radiation treatments and chemotherapy Lee would endure the next 11⁄2 years. A colostomy is where the human waste goes into a bag outside the body in order to bypass the lower intestines. So many medical appointments, Harold P. kept his own stat book of the time, place and with whom Lee was supposed to meet. The sports editor missed work for six months. The chief surgeon who eventually removed the tumor said re-

And there was that ugly six-letter word — cancer. Lee was diagnosed with colorectal cancer, stage IV, with stage V being the worst, said his parents. The first sign of divine intervention was the cancer insurance policy Lee took out just months before his diagnosis. “I do believe God was at work,” said his mother. It was a long and bumpy road throughout the regular season and deep into the playoffs, his parents both say. “Lee, did you ever think about giving up?” his father asked him recently

over a sit down homecooked dinner by Vonceil. “No sir,” Lee returned, as he lost 30 pounds after surgery. Victory was within grasp. But the game wasn’t over. ■■■

The plan was first put Lee through radiation to reduce the size of the tumor and then some chemotherapy treatments. The West Clinic proved to be a godsend and important part of the team, the family said. “We are so blessed to have them here,” said Vonceil. “They are so nice. It’s a gift.” After bad winter weath-

“Our prayers have been answered,” said Vonceil upon the news her son had been declared cancer free, a championship on the horizon. “There were a lot of prayers by friends, family and our church family,” added mom, as the Smiths are members and attend First United Methodist Church. “He is cancer free and we pray he will continue to be that way,” said Vonceil. As doctors predicted, there were complications along the way. Attempts were made to get Lee’s colon working again. Eventually there was success and several procedures and his ileostomy bag was removed. There were chemo port problems and Lee developed a hernia, a side effect the doctors said might happen when a person has so many incisions in the abdomen. Harold P. also developed health problems, but like his son, he con-

Signs and symptoms of colorectal cancer are provided by the American Cancer Society. Colorectal cancer may cause one or more of the following symptoms. If you have any of these symptoms, see your doctor immediately. ■ A change in bowel habits, such as diarrhea, constipation, or narrowing of the stool, that lasts for more than a few days ■ A feeling that you need to have a bowel movement that is not relieved by doing so ■ Rectal bleeding, dark stools, or blood in the stool (often, though, the stool will look normal) ■ Cramping or abdominal (belly) pain ■ Weakness and fatigue ■ Unintended weight loss Most of these symptoms are more often caused by conditions other than colorectal cancer, such as infection, hemorrhoids or inflammatory bowel disease. Still, if you have any of these problems, it’s important to see your doctor right away so the cause can be found and treated, if needed. tinues to battle each challenge as it is presented. “Poor ole Vonceil, bless her heart,” noted Harold P. “She’s had to take care of both of us.” Through it all, Lee never called a timeout and Please see CANCER | 5A

Corinth, Miss.

Our View Thanks, Nelson Wall, for your years of service Local and state leaders and educators at all levels came together recently at Northeast Mississippi Community College in Corinth to honor a person we can all say was our friend. Nelson Wall. It’s hard to believe anyone could last in any job or profession for 51 years, but such was the case with Wall. The longtime educator and Alcorn County native recently announced he would be retiring. The retirement marks the end of a successful 51-year career in education, most notably the last five years 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 at the retirement reception. We’re not sure if there is someone out there keeping count, but according to the Mississippi Public Employees Retirement Service, people ordinarily retire with 31 years of service, Childers said. With 20 extra years under his belt of service than the average state employee, we can all agree that what Wall has accomplished is something worth saying thanks. Wall has touched many over the years. Beginning in 1960 in the Holly community, he then held positions at Oakland, Kossuth High School and Alcorn Central High School. The principal took his talents to Arkansas, where in 1992 he retired as a school district superintendent. He didn’t stay retired long when he returned home. NEMCC positions he held included Tech Prep coordinator, administrative assistant to the president and dean of community service before he was asked to oversee Northeast at Corinth. “Nelson Wall is an inspiration to everyone,” said Childers at the reception. “He’s a legend and an icon in education. I consider him to be a friend and a great American.” We agree. Thanks, Nelson Wall, for all you have done and the many contributions you have made. We will be forever thankful.

Prayer for today

Coleman walks in some long political shadows STARKVILLE — While on a quick stop to buy a Mother’s Day gift for my wife at the McCarty Pottery world headquarters in Merigold during a recent trip to Fayetteville, Ark., I had a very brief chance encounter with someone I’d never met — Ackerman native Josiah Coleman, who said he was running for a seat on the state Supreme Court. During a hurried conversation not recorded by a reporter’s notes, Coleman seem a bright, personable young man. I left the encounter vaguely aware that Coleman said he was related to the late former Gov. James Plemon “J.P.” Coleman of Ackerman, who later was a distinguished Mississippi federal judge. In a recent column on the state’s judicial races, I erroneously identified Josiah Coleman as the nephew of J.P. Coleman. Wrong. Coleman is the grandson — not the nephew — of Mississippi’s 51st governor and the son of former state Court of Appeals Judge Thomas A. Coleman. Josiah Coleman is seeking the Northern District Place 3 Supreme Court seat being vacated by retiring Presid-

ing Justice George Carlson of Batesville in a race that pits him against Batesville atSid Salter torney Rich“Flip” Columnist ard Phillips. The youngest Coleman practices law in Oxford, lives in Toccopola in Pontotoc County and is a volunteer fireman when he’s not in the courtroom. While I’ve only met his father in passing, I was fortunate to have had the opportunity to get to know his grandfather in during the last decade of his life after he’d stepped down from the federal bench. J.P. Coleman was first elected as district attorney in 1940 and served until 1946, when he was elected to the state Circuit Court. After serving there from 1947-50, Coleman served briefly on the state Supreme Court. From 1950-1956, Coleman served as Mississippi’s attorney general. Coleman was elected governor and served from 1956-60 in the days before gubernatorial succession. He would seek and win a

seat in the state House of Representatives in 1960, thus becoming the only person in Mississippi history to serve in elective office in all three branches of state government. He was both a transitional and a transformational figure in Mississippi politics. By today’s standards, Coleman’s record on race and segregation seems decidedly conservative and supportive of segregation. But in the 1950s and 1960s, Coleman was savaged by political opponents from within his own Democratic Party who questioned his devotion to the segregationist cause. Much was made of Coleman’s friendship with President John F. Kennedy and with President Lyndon B. Johnson — a friendship Coleman and Johnson had enjoyed since their days as congressional aides together on Capitol Hill. One of the things Paul Johnson used against Coleman in his 1963 bid for governor was the fact that he’d allowed then U.S. Sen. Kennedy to sleep in the “Bilbo bed” in the Mississippi Governor’s Mansion during a visit while Coleman was governor. After stepping down from

the federal bench in the 1980s, Judge Coleman and I shared several lunches at the old State Street location of Primos Cafe in Jackson near the old Baptist Hospital. His suit was dark, he always wore a felt hat, and he seemed to drape himself over his chair in the old Greek restaurant. Politics was a lifelong interest for him and Judge Coleman liked to keep up with the Capitol happenings until his health failed. Some of my favorite days as a reporter were listening to Judge Coleman’s accounts of Mississippi coming to grips with question of race, poverty and politics in the turbulent 1950s and 1960s — all told with as much Choctaw County humor and charm as he could muster. He had a marvelous laugh. I’m not sure how his grandson will fare in this year’s judicial elections, but it’s certain that Josiah Coleman walks in one of the longest, straightest, and most distinguished political shadows ever cast across Mississippi.

The umpire blinks in ObamaCare decision Chief Justice John Roberts famously defined himself as an umpire in his confirmation hearings. But an umpire is willing to make the toughest calls. In his ObamaCare decision, Roberts the umpire blinked. By issuing a decision that forestalled the tsunami of criticism that would have come his way had he struck down the law (as an activist, a partisan and an altogether rotten human being), Roberts effectively rewrote the constitutionally problematic portions of it. He overstepped his bounds. The umpire called a balk, but gave the pitcher a do-over. The ref called a foul, but didn’t interrupt the play. As a result, there’s ObamaCare as passed by Congress. Then there’s ObamaCare as passed by the Supreme Court. ObamaCare as passed by Congress had a mandate to buy health insurance and a penalty for failing to comply. ObamaCare as passed by the Supreme Court has an optional tax for those without health insurance. ObamaCare as passed by Congress required states to participate in a massive expansion of Medicaid, or lose all their federal Med-

icaid funds. ObamaCare as passed by the Supreme Court makes state participation in the Rich Medicaid exLowery pansion optional. National In pursuit Review of a judicial modesty deferential to Congress, Roberts usurped its role. ObamaCare as passed by Congress didn’t pass constitutional muster. ObamaCare as passed by the Supreme Court didn’t pass Congress -- and might not have passed Congress had it been presented for an up-or-down vote festooned with yet another tax. Roberts vindicated the core of the constitutional argument against the individual mandate that had been sneered at by the legal establishment and pronounced preposterous by the likes of Nancy Pelosi. The mandate is unprecedented in that it doesn’t regulate existing activity; it compels people to undertake an activity — namely, buying insurance — that Congress then regulates under the Interstate Commerce Clause. This stretch-

es the Commerce Clause beyond the breaking point. The chief even reverted to the widely derided broccoli argument: If the federal government can make you buy insurance, it can make you eat vegetables. The government’s logic, Roberts wrote, “authorizes Congress to use its commerce power to compel citizens to act as the Government would have them act. That is not the country the Framers of our Constitution envisioned.” Then, Roberts went out in search of some way, any way, to find the mandate constitutional. He alighted on the argument that the mandate isn’t a mandate at all, but a tax. Never mind that the tax argument was an afterthought in the administration’s defense of the law. Never mind that administration officials, from the president on down, vociferously denied that it was a tax during the debate over the bill. Never mind that the law itself never defines it as a tax and includes the mandate (and its penalty) in a different title of the act from the revenue provisions. “To say that the Individual Mandate merely imposes a tax is not to interpret the statute, but to re-write it,” the four conservative dis-

senters from the Roberts opinion write. The chief was willing to take out his rewrite pen to avoid striking down the mandate. He did the same to keep from throwing out the Medicaid expansion. He considers it, too, an offense against the constitutional order. Wherever exactly the line for impermissible coercion of the states falls, he noted, “this statute is surely beyond it.” Roberts gets points for cleverness. He set clear constitutional boundaries without striking down the law. He largely sided with the critics of ObamaCare without enraging its supporters. He came up with the only 5-4 decision that wouldn’t subject his court to the calumny of the Obama administration and law-school deans everywhere. All the op-eds that had been drafted trashing the legitimacy of the court have been filed away for now. As chief justice, Roberts has competing priorities, of course. But it’s not his job to redraft laws under the guise of judicial restraint. On ObamaCare, the umpire struck out. (Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

Corinth Theatre-Arts offers ratings system BY BOBBY J. SMITH

Corinth Theatre-Arts has announced a new rating system that give the local theater company the capability to quickly communicate what kind of

content theatergoers can expect from its 2012-13 season of productions. “It’s a way to communicate to the community things we’ve already been doing, but to make it more clear that we offer

certain types of plays for certain audiences,” said Artistic Director Cristina Skinner. “If people have any concerns about the content, we’re going further to describe what they’ll encounter, as far as

content.” This season CT-A is offering three ratings of productions — Main Stage, Second Stage and Youth Stage. Main Stage productions are considered appropriate for most

audiences. Second Stage consists of productions more appropriate for an adult audience. Youth Stage productions are appropriate for a general audience. Each play of the season

will also have a suggested rating: All Audiences, Parental Guidance, Parental Guidance below 13 or Restricted. These ratings provide further explanations for each product rating.

but Lee stays in the game. “There are good days and there are bad days,” said Lee. “But I’m here.” “I accepted the fact I had cancer. I was really at ease with the diagnosis because I had faith in God,” said the now cancer survivor. “I’d been blessed with a great life and if He thought it was my time to go, I had no

valid argument — not that I’d win it anyway.” The journalist is sharing his story in hopes others won’t ignore stomach cramps and rectal pains — see a doctor and order a colonoscopy, he said. Doctors recommend a colonoscopy at age 50, unless there is a family history, the Smiths shared. However, both

parents said they simply don’t know if colon cancer was a family problem in the past. But they are moving forward on health’s playing field. Lee’s younger brother Brewster Smith had the procedure at age 38 as a precaution. Lee’s son McCartney will follow with his first

checkup at the young age of 30. He will listen to his favorite coach, his dad. “We are sharing Lee’s story,” added an emotional Vonceil, her eyes full of tears “In hopes it might save a life.” In these parents’ eyes, they both agree. With a victory over colon cancer, H. Lee Smith

II is a champion. (The Smith family wishes to send out gratitude to all those fans who continued to pray through Lee’s ordeal and they send out loving MVP awards to all the health professionals along the way who cared for Lee when it was fourth down and a long way to go.)


kept going back to the huddle for help and support of his biggest fans and coaches -- his parents. “It’s been tough,” added Lee. “But they have been right there for me.” Today, Lee takes each day as it comes. He has spent 37 days in hospitals. He’s been through six surgeries, three outpatient procedures and numerous xrays and scans. There are ups and downs for a body which has been through so much. There might be timeouts and game delays,

Easom Outreach targeted all age groups to get involved. “There is a place for everybody,” said Webb. The group is working on a few details of building codes with the city before launching a hot meals program that will reach out to elderly and shut-ins in South Corinth. A $3,000 Appalachian Regional Commission grant will help launch that program. Easom supporters also gathered for the Easom Alumni 2nd Annual Affair Friday night.

Police sink teeth in this crime Associated Press

VIENNA — Have the teeth of two famed 19thcentury composers been stolen from their graves? Austrian prosecutors are trying to find out. Thomas Vecsey of the Vienna state prosecu-

tor’s office says authorities are considering filing charges against a man suspected of breaking into the graves of Austrian waltz king Johann Strauss Jr. and German Romantic composer Johannes Brahms and tak-

ing their teeth. Both are buried in Vienna. Vecsey said recently that suspicions first arose in 2008 but investigators determined that any crime fell under Austria’s statute of limitations.

Eastern storms kill 13 WASHINGTON — Millions across the midAtlantic region sweltered Saturday in the aftermath of violent storms that pummeled the eastern U.S. with high winds and downed trees, killing at least 13 people and leaving 3 million without power during a tripledigit heat wave. Power officials said the outages wouldn’t be repaired for several days to a week, likening the damage to a serious hurricane. Emergencies were declared in Maryland, West Virginia, Ohio, the District of Columbia and Virginia, where Gov. Bob McDonnell said the state had its largest non-hurricane outage in history, as more storms threatened. “This is a very dangerous situation,” the governor said. In some Virginia suburbs of Washington, emergency 911 call centers were out of service; residents were told to call local police and fire departments. Huge trees fell across streets in Washington, leaving cars crunched up next to them, and onto the fairway at the AT&T National golf tournament in Maryland. Cell phone and Internet service was spotty, gas stations shut down and residents were urged to conserve water until sewage plants returned to power. The outages were especially dangerous because they left the region without air conditioning in an oppressive heat. Temperatures soared to 94 by midafternoon and were to hit 100 in Baltimore and Washington, where it had hit 104 on Friday. “I’ve called everybody except for the state police to try to get power going,” said Karen Fryer, resident services director at two assisted living

facilities in Washington. The facilities had generator power, but needed to go out for portable air conditioning units, and Fryer worried about a few of her 100 residents who needed backup power for portable oxygen. More than 200 miles away in Morgantown, W.Va., Jeff and Alice Haney loaded their cart at Lowe’s with cases of water, extra flashlights and batteries, and wiring for the generator they hoped would be enough to kick-start their air conditioner. Even if they had to live without cool air, the family had a backup plan.

Obama lauds response to fires WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama praised the coordinated response to Colorado’s wildfires and said trying times bring Americans together. Obama was in the state Friday for a firsthand look at the damage after he declared the situation a major disaster and promised federal aid. More than 30,000 people have been evacuated in what is now the most destructive wildfire in state history. “One of the things that happens here in America is when we see our fellow citizens in trouble and having difficulty, we come together as one American family, as one community,” Obama said Saturday in his weekly radio and Internet address. The federal government has provided firefighters, fire engines, and aircraft, including 19 air tankers to assist in fighting the fires in Colorado and other Western states. Obama’s focus on the Colorado fires came at the end of an eventful week at the White House

capped by Thursday’s Supreme Court decision upholding Obama’s health care law and congressional passage of two Obama priorities — a highway construction bill and an extension of lower student loan rates. Obama acknowledged that choosing the fires as the topic of his weekend address was unusual, but said it was an opportunity to focus on the problem facing the people of Colorado. Obama emphasized the role the federal government was playing in addressing the disaster, a lesson learned from the Bush administration’s widely criticized response to Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

Some Dems still skittish on health care WASHINGTON — The constitutional win for President Barack Obama and Democrats on health care overhaul is reopening political cuts within the party over the unpopular law. Four months to an election with control of Congress in the balance, the Supreme Court’s affirmation of the law left several Democrats insisting that the issue was settled and it’s time to focus on jump-starting a sluggish economy. Other Democrats saw the newfound attention as a chance to reset the debate and make a fresh case for the law’s more popular elements, especially as 12.8 million Americans start getting health insurance rebate checks in the coming months. The most vulnerable Democratic incumbents and challengers — Montana Sen. Jon Tester and North Dakota’s Heidi Heitkamp among them — cautiously welcomed the court’s judgment but argued that the law could be improved.

RICHMOND, Va. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Sometimes a cigar isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just a cigar. From large hand-rolled cigars and smaller machine-made cigars to little cigars that are similar in size to cigarettes, there are nearly as many cigars as there are aficionados to enjoy them. And as federal regulators weigh standards for the entire industry, some in the cigar world are pushing to make sure their livelihoods and the products they enjoy donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go up in smoke. While the Food and Drug Administration has expressed its intention to regulate cigars under a 2009 law that gave it authority over the tobacco industry, it has yet to specify whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ahead as it ramps up efforts to curb the death and disease caused by tobacco. If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anything like the FDAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regulation of cigarettes and smokeless tobacco, that could mean banning certain flavors, requiring new health warnings, limiting the sizes and shapes of cigars, or imposing restrictions for marketing, advertising and retail sales. Cigars also may be restricted from being sold separately and the agency also could limit the amount of nicotine in the products. The premium cigar industry argues any number of the potential restrictions could hurt both cigar makers and specialty tobacco stores, whose products make up only a small fraction of tobacco sales, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pose the same concerns as cigarettes, and the range of sizes and shapes of cigars makes across-the-board standards almost impossible. Even the House Appropriations Committee weighed in on issue in its report on the fiscal year 2013

Agriculture Appropriations bill recently, reminding the FDA that â&#x20AC;&#x153;premium cigars have unique characteristics and cost prohibitive price points and are not marketed to kids. Any effort to regulate cigars should take these items into consideration.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to focus your efforts on regulating tobacco products to meet the spirit and intent of the Tobacco Control Act, where is best to spend those scarce resources â&#x20AC;&#x201D; on a tenth of a percent of the market or on a huge chunk of the market?â&#x20AC;? asked Bill Spann, CEO of the International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers Association, an industry group representing more than 2,000 tobacco retailers and more than 350 cigar manufacturers, distributors and others. According to the latest federal data, there are about 13.3 million cigar smokers in the U.S., far less than the 45.3 million U.S. cigarette smokers. U.S. tobacco sales topped $107 billion in 2011, but only 7 percent, or $7.77 billion, consisted of cigars, according to statistics from Euromonitor International. And of the 7 billion cigars sold annually, only about 250 million of them qualify as premium, handmade cigars that range in price from $6 to $30 and are â&#x20AC;&#x201D; as far as Spann is concerned â&#x20AC;&#x201D; akin to fine wines and craft beer. While Spann recognizes the need for tobacco regulation, he believes smoking premium cigars is a hobby, not a habit, and they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t marketed or sold to children. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a middle-schooler or highschooler standing on the corner with a $15 Davidoff (a brand of cigar) sticking out of their mouth,â&#x20AC;? Spann said. Possible restrictions to premium cigars have been

NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; For all the scary headlines â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a bailout of Spanish banks, JPMorganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s huge trading loss, the sputtering job market, Facebookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s failed initial public offering â&#x20AC;&#x201D; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a wonder stocks arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t down more this year. Actually, stocks arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t down. That was a trick sentence. At the halfway mark for 2012, stocks are up more than 8 percent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re down because memories are short,â&#x20AC;? says Rex Macey, chief investment officer at Wilmington Trust Investment Advisors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It feels like the marketâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been worse than it actually has.â&#x20AC;? The year began with investors focusing on corporate Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s record profits and scooping up stocks. The Standard & Poorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 500 index surged 12 percent from January through March. It looked like that gain might be wiped out in the second quarter. Investors worried about Europeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inability to find a lasting solution to its debt crisis and about slower job growth in the United States. Then came Friday: European leaders announced a broad strategy to funnel money into failing banks and keep borrowing costs down for governments, and stocks soared around the world. It all left the S&P 500

up a healthy 8.3 percent for the year. What happens next will probably depend on corporate earnings again. For April through June, they are expected to fall 0.7 percent from a year ago, according to S&P Capital IQ, a research firm. That would be the first drop in nearly three years. So far, though, stocks in the U.S. are trouncing those in many countries.

a topic of conversation at any one of Craig Cassâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; specialty tobacco shops in North Carolina and South Carolina, where smokers often make use of lounge areas to smoke and chat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re worried about losing the artisan nature of our products, where every time they come in thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something new to select from,â&#x20AC;? Cass said, adding that customers arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just coming in to â&#x20AC;&#x153;grab their smokes,â&#x20AC;? they are looking for a particular cigar to suit their mood or the situation. If regulations force cigar makers to conform their products, that could limit the number of cigars available for aficionados to choose from the storeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s large, walk-in humidors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of that range of flavor is very unique to every single box in the humidor,â&#x20AC;? Cass said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we were like the other category of tobacco like a cigarette, you could walk in the humidor and have 10 boxes of cigars in there. ... We have 700.â&#x20AC;? Cassâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; interaction with customers could also change under federal regulations, putting the cigars behind the counter rather than in a humidor where customers can smell, touch and see a variety of cigars. In Canada, for example, cigar shops now have binders with a list of available cigars that customers can point to on a piece of paper. Cass and Spann have joined with others in the cigar industry to seek a change in Congress to protect premium hand-rolled cigars from FDA regulation and save 85,000 small business jobs around the country. Resolutions in both the House and the Senate remain in committee. In the House, the resolution sponsored by U.S. Rep. Bill Posey, a Republican from Florida â&#x20AC;&#x201D; home to many of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pre-

mium cigar makers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; has gained more than 200 cosponsors. The Senate resolution, sponsored by Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, also from Florida, has more than 10 co-sponsors. As far as regulation is concerned, the greatest need is to â&#x20AC;&#x153;put an end to the production and marketing of products that have the greatest appeal to youth,â&#x20AC;? said Matt Myers, president of the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, singling out machinemade large cigars, little cigars and tobacco wrappers that sold at convenience stores for low prices and in a variety of flavors like peach and strawberry. Nearly 19 percent of high school boys currently smoke cigars, according to the 2009 Youth Risk Behavior Survey. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s slightly less than the 2005 rate of 19.2 percent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These highly flavored little cigars clearly appeal disproportionately to young people and have the potential to serve as starter tobacco products,â&#x20AC;? Myers said. While all cigars increase the risk of disease, Myers said â&#x20AC;&#x153;the FDA has the ability to segment which cigar products pose the greatest risk both in terms of disease and in terms of youth use and to design regulations appropriate for each, which is what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to see them do.â&#x20AC;? Richmond, Va.-based Altria Group Inc., owner of Black & Mild cigar maker John Middleton, said in a statement that if the FDA asserts regulation over cigars, it should be â&#x20AC;&#x153;science-based and apply to all cigar manufacturers.â&#x20AC;? Machine-made Black & Mild cigars and cigarillos are sold in flavor varieties such as sweet, wine and apple. Altria also owns the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest tobacco company and maker of top-selling Marlboro cigarettes, Philip Morris USA.

Potts sees opportunities at MVSU Associated Press

ITTA BENA — Chico Potts is getting the opportunity he has always wanted, but it certainly won’t be easy. In his first role as head coach, Potts believes he’s up for the challenge as he takes over a depleted roster and a program in academic shambles at Mississippi Valley State. Potts, 36, was hired to replace Sean Woods, who brought Potts in from Delta State as an assistant four years ago when Woods was hired to replace Lafayette Stribling. Two days after Potts’ hiring, MVSU’s men’s basketball team was hit with a one-year

postseason ban by the NCAA because of sub-par work in the classroom. MVSU received the level three penalty for falling below the mandated cutline of 900 for its four-year Academic Progress Rates. APR measures graduation rates of every Division I team. This year’s data calculates rates from 2007-08 through 201011. Valley’s APR was 865 in men’s hoops. The team will also lose three non-conference games for the upcoming season and practice time as part of the NCAA penalties. Potts was aware of the APR woes and knew of the pending penalties before being hired.

He believes he has a plan to fix the off-the-court issues. On the court, Potts needs players. Only three players return from the Delta Devils team that won the Southwestern Athletic Conference regular-season and tournament titles and appeared in the NCAA Tournament. Only one of those, Brent Arrington, saw significant playing time. “This is a great opportunity for me, and I plan to make the most of it. This is definitely the opportunity that I have waited and prayed for,” said Potts, an Indianola native. “I’m excited about leading this program going forward. Over the past four years, I have grown here with this

university and built some really special relationships and I’m so thankful and I feel so blessed for this chance. “Yes, I understand we face a big challenge because we have to replace seven good players who were the glue to last year’s team. We’ve got to get some guys signed and on campus. We’re a little behind, but we’ve got some guys committed to coming here,” he said. Potts, a former Indianola Gentry star, started his college career playing for Lon Morris Junior College in Jacksonville, Texas, before going on to Louisiana State University Please see MVSU | 9A

NFL shifts start for 2nd game of doubleheaders Associated Press

NEW YORK — Tim Tebow was leading the Broncos on yet another improbable last-minute comeback, and fans in New York, Dallas and other footballmad markets didn’t get to see the end. The NFL announced a scheduling change Thursday aimed at preventing such moments. The league is shifting the start time of the second game of its Sunday TV doubleheaders by 10 minutes to ensure fewer fans miss any of the action on the field. The late afternoon matchups on CBS and Fox will kick off at 3:25 p.m. CT instead of 3:15. Late games not on that week’s doubleheader network will still start at 3:05. Because of the networks’ contractual obligations, fans in the past would sometimes miss the end of the early telecast or the beginning of the late one if the 1 p.m. game ran long. The broadcasters must switch to the start of the second game in the home teams’ cities even if the day’s first televised contest is still going on. For fans in other markets, that overlap means they don’t get to see the opening of the late game. During the 2009-11 seasons, 44 games lasted long enough to require part of the audience to be switched. Under the 3:25 kickoff, that number would have been reduced to 15. On Dec. 4, Denver beat the Minnesota Vikings on a field goal as time expired on Fox, the Broncos’ fifth straight win as Tebow-mania swept the country. The game ended at 4:19 p.m. CT, so hometown fans of the Packers, Giants, Cowboys, Cardinals, Rams and 49ers — whose teams played in the 3:15 game — missed the final seconds. NBC said it would not change the way it produces its Sunday night pregame show, which starts at 6 p.m.

COLUMBIA, Mo. — Perhaps the only downer in Missouri’s jump to the Southeastern Conference is the indefinite interruption of the feisty border conflict with Kansas. Left behind in the Big 12, the Jayhawks were left feeling abandoned, jilted. Men’s basketball coach Bill Self said several times last season that he couldn’t see scheduling the Tigers anytime soon. There seem to be no hard feelings anywhere else, in-

cluding the big city just down the road that used to benefit from the Missouri-Kansas rivalry. Missouri athletic director Mike Alden took delight this past week announcing that a $30 million gift that jump-started the school’s $200 million facilities facelift came from Kansas City. “I thought it was pretty special to know that coming straight out of Kansas City was the second-largest gift to ever be made in the history of the University of Missouri,” Alden said. “Certainly the

move to the SEC was something that created quite a bit of enthusiasm and support.” Missouri’s move to the SEC is official on Sunday, ending an association with the Big 12 and its previous incarnations dating to 1907. There’s no looking back. An SEC logo already adorns midfield. The campus is sleepy this time of year. Yet, there’s unprecedented excitement about the inaugural year in a league that has recently dominated the top tier of college football in particular.

A Tiger Town initiative endorsed by the Columbia Tribune proposes closing downtown to vehicles and relaxing the city’s open container policy to accommodate “increasing hordes of Southeastern Conference visitors” and create a “pedestrian downtown party zone.” Tickets are scarce for the inaugural SEC game against Georgia in September, just the second meeting between the schools.

Aggies officially say ‘Howdy’ to new league Associated Press

COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Texas A&M is using its move from the Big 12 to the Southeastern Conference as a chance to reinvent itself from a regional brand to a national one. But first the Aggies wanted to introduce themselves, or as they would put it, say “Howdy” to their new conference. Roll Tide? War Eagle? Get ready for “Gig ‘Em!” In the last few months, one of the school’s initiatives has been using its website, Face-

book, Twitter and various SEC forums to educate people about A&M and answer questions concerning some of the unique traditions at this once all-male military school — the male-only Yell Leaders instead of cheerleaders, for example, and the 12th Man tradition. “I always tell people that Texas A&M has always been an SEC school in terms of our traditions, our spirit and our passion,” said Jason Cook, Texas A&M’s vice president for marketing and communi-

cations. “We’ve just been positioned in the wrong conference.” If that sounds like a jab, well, it probably is. The school’s departure from the Big 12 was at time acrimonious and dominated by a falling out of sorts with Texas, its biggest rival. The Aggies were worried about the future of the Big 12 after the departures of Nebraska and Colorado, and the creation of the Longhorn TV network by Texas and ESPN simply made things worse. Texas A&M began explor-

ing the possibility of joining the SEC a year ago to increase the school’s profile nationally — as well as increase revenue. They were welcomed into the league on Sept. 26 and will officially make the transition along with Missouri on Sunday when they will become the first newcomers to the league since South Carolina and Arkansas joined the conference in 1992.

Williams hits a record 23 aces, edges Zheng Associated Press

WIMBLEDON, England — While watching Serena Williams come from behind at Wimbledon, older sister Venus sat in the front row stifling a yawn. Nothing to worry about. Venus was correct — barely. Serena hit a Wimbledonrecord 23 aces, held every service game and narrowly escaped an upset bid by Zheng Jie, winning 6-7 (5), 6-2, 9-7 in the third round Saturday. Williams, who erased all

six break points she faced, served three times to stay in the match and held each time at love. She was pushed to deuce serving in the final game but closed out the victory with a volley winner, then hopped in glee on the Centre Court grass. “I just wanted to get through that match,” Williams said. “The last thing I wanted to do was lose.” The 5-foot-41⁄2 Zheng, seeded 25th, played with little flash but plenty of consistency, committing just 17

unforced errors. She hung in the match despite hitting only one ace. Venus Williams — a fivetime champion who lost in the first round — may not have been concerned, but Serena looked plenty worried. She rocketed a return to break for an 8-7 lead in the final set, then showed how much she wanted to win, throwing back her head and letting out a long scream. Williams has been stalled at 13 Grand Slam titles since winning Wimbledon for the

fourth time in 2010, and dealt with a series of health issues in 2010-11. Her next opponent will be unseeded Yaroslava Shvedova of Kazakhstan, who won all 24 points in the first set — a so-called “golden set” — and beat French Open runner-up Sara Errani 6-0, 6-4. It’s the first known golden set by a woman in the Open era, the International Tennis Federation said, and the BBC showed a highlight package Please see WILLIAMS | 9A

Spain promises to attack Italy in Euro 2012 final Associated Press

KIEV, Ukraine — Spain will play attacking football against Italy in the European Championship final. The defending champions just hope Italy returns the favor. Both teams go into Sunday’s final at the Olympic Stadium promising to maintain the tactics that have brought them here. Spain coach Vicente del Bosque promised an attacking lineup comprised of three forwards, which did little to clear up whether Spain will use its midfield-heavy attack or field a single striker. He also brushed off criticism that Spain’s attack lacks the cutting edge it had during the team’s Euro 2008 and 2010 World Cup triumphs. “We have more of an obligation to attack than to defend because we have players with capabilities to do so,” Del Bosque said on Saturday. “Football moves forward and there has been a change of players in the team, but the nucleus remains the same. We’re playing the same way we always have.” Cesc Fabregas and Fernando Torres have shared the most of the responsibility for Spain’s attack. David Silva has looked fatigue and there is speculation he could make way for Pedro Rodriguez, who has been impressive in his two appearances off the bench. Italy coach Cesare Prandelli has meanwhile promised to maintain Italy’s current style, which has not only helped it to the final but has come as a surprise compared to its normally defensive ways. “A team that has (Andrea) Pirlo, (Claudio) Marchisio and (Riccardo) Montolivo is a team that wants to play football, there’s no doubt,” Del Bosque said. “It’s an open final because we’ve both followed parallel styles to get here. Our styles of play have been very similar, I don’t see much of a difference.” Italy has played with a certain flair normally attributed to Spain, which is vying to win a third straight major title. Spain and Italy played to a 1-1 draw in their Group C opener, when Italy was one of the few teams not to sit back and to strike on the counterattack. “We have to wait until tomorrow to see what the Italy coach does,” Spain playmaker Xavi Hernandez said. “Italian football isn’t what it was two years ago, now they want the ball. They’ve got a great team and they know how to compete.” All the ingredients are there for a memorable final. “Italy has changed, they’ve got better as the tournament went on and they deserve to be in the final,” Del Bosque said. “We can’t think we’ll face a defensive Italy because they have never showed that here. They come (into the final) playing a certain way and I imagine they will maintain it for this last game against us.”

in October. Season ticket holder David Branom of Kirkwood, Mo., is anticipating making mini-vacations out of “some great road trips.” “I did not want Missouri to leave the Big 12,” Branom said. “And I have always thought the SEC thought a little too highly of itself. But now we’re a part of it, so I need to change my attitude.” During a summer

men’s basketball teleconference several days ago, the new guys had the welcome mat out. “Clearly, last year they were one of the top five teams from start to finish,” Florida’s Billy Donovan said of the Tigers. “Some of them are gone but others are coming, and I’m a big, big fan of Phil Pressey.” John Calipari, coach of national champion Kentucky, believes the new SEC, which is also adding Texas A&M, will send half of its teams to

the NCAA tournament. “And that’s going to be from here on out,” Calipari said. So rather than Oklahoma and Texas, the top-end competition in football will be Alabama and LSU. Or Arkansas, where there is also an attractive rivalry possibility in men’s basketball given that Razorbacks coach Mike Anderson led the Tigers for four seasons. “Now it’s just gotten a little more interesting,” Anderson said.

“They bring a great deal to the league. The whole athletic program, what Mike Alden has done, has been tremendous. and I’m proud to have been a part of it.” Football coach Gary Pinkel has characterized the move as “mammoth.” He is fired up about a renovation project that will add 6,000 seats and luxury suites, along with other improvements that should make it easier to sell high school prospects that Missouri is a desti-

nation school. The boost in attendance to about 76,000, in anticipation of increased demand relating to the move, would still be ninth in the SEC. But it makes a statement nonetheless. “It’s great for many reasons but it’s also huge for recruiting,” Pinkel said. “Players want to go to a place where they’re going to be the best, where they have excellent facilities, as good as anyone in the country. That’s what we’re going to have.”

The SEC allowed Texas A&M to begin cobranding merchandise immediately after the conference change was announced and the response so far has been huge, school officials say. In the first six months after the announcement, Texas A&M’s licensing revenue increased 24 percent, according to Cook. That’s just one sign of the support among students and fans about the upcoming move. “It’s been extremely positive and it’s actually

grown,” interim athletic director John Thornton said. “It’s exciting. There’s a buzz and it’s just been consistent. I’ve been at A&M for over 30 years as a coach and an administrator and gone through the Southwest Conference and the Big 12 and there’s nothing you can compare this to. There’s just genuine, genuine excitement and anticipation.” The change puts Texas A&M in the toughest football

conference in the country, a fact not lost on new coach Kevin Sumlin, who was hired from Houston in December. “There is no better, no

higher level of competition in college football than the SEC,” Sumlin said. That, Thornton said, is one of the most alluring parts of the change.


charge for the move, has called it a “100-year decision” and believes the SEC is the perfect place for the university to flourish, not only athletically, but also in academics. “There is absolutely no hierarchy within the SEC, every member is equally valued, at the table for every decision that’s made and treated with genuine respect,” Loftin says in a university video promoting the move.

and finishing his career at Delta State University. The experience of playing at those levels has served as a strong tool in helping Potts as a recruiter, and he believes that it will continue to be an instrumental part in bringing in talented players. “Having the chance to play on just about every level of collegiate basketball is a big deal when you’re talking to studentathletes. “I have the experience of playing big time SEC basketball as well as D-II ball. I know what they have to offer, and I know how to present this university because there is such a good and rich athletic tradition here. “Growing up right down the road in Indianola, I am very familiar with Valley. I love the Delta, and I believe in what we can do here at Mississippi Valley. For my family and me, this is where we want to be, and we are going to do our very best to be great representatives of this university,” Potts said. Potts said he will bring in an aggressive but disciplined approach to the game.

of all 24 points. Williams will face Shvedova on Monday. “Hopefully I’ll be able to win a point in the set,” Williams said. “That will be my first goal, and then I’ll go from there.” Defending champion Petra Kvitova, No. 2-ranked Victoria Azarenka and former French Open champions Ana Ivanovic and Francesca Schiavone also reached the fourth round. Lukas Rosol, who stunned twotime champion Rafael Nadal in the second round, flopped in his follow-up, losing to No. 27-seeded Philipp Kohlschreiber 6-2, 6-3, 7-6 (6). “I knew that this can happen,”

said Rosol, a Czech ranked 100th. “I was thinking only just to don’t sleep and open eyes again and play good tennis.” Three-time runnerup Andy Roddick failed to convert two set points in the second set and lost to No. 7-seeded David Ferrer 2-6, 7-6 (8), 6-4, 6-3. Fellow American Mardy Fish,

What does the health care law mean for you? BY CONNIE CASS Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Free vaccines for kids, cheaper drugs for the elderly and many other benefits of President Barack Obama’s health care law are already out there. More are coming, like a guaranteed right to buy health insurance even for patients with serious medical troubles. Many businesses and wealthy taxpayers, however, will see their costs go up. And most Americans balk at the idea of the government making people carry insurance or pay a penalty on their federal tax returns. The effects of the nation’s health care law, upheld Thursday by the Supreme Court, are gigantic and growing. Some questions and answers about it: Q: What does the ruling mean for me? A: The ruling affects virtually every American. Obama’s health care

law tells almost everyone they must be insured and makes sure that coverage will be available to them even if they are already ill or need hugely expensive care. It helps the poor and many middle-class people afford the cost. And it requires insurers to provide certain basic benefits, like preventive care without co-pays from the patient. Q: What did the Supreme Court say? A: The court upheld almost all of the law, including the most disputed part: the requirement that virtually all Americans have health insurance or pay a penalty. The court said the penalty is essentially a tax, and that’s why the government has the power to impose it. The ruling somewhat limits the plan to expand the Medicaid insurance program for the poor, a joint effort of the federal government and states.

It says the government may not withhold a state’s entire Medicaid allotment if it doesn’t participate in the expansion. Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the court’s four liberal justices — Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor — to form the 5-4 majority. Q: What does the decision mean for the November election? A: It’s a big win for Obama, dousing accusations that his signature legislation was an unconstitutional power grab. But Republicans hope the court’s ruling will fire up their supporters and inflame popular opposition to the law. Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney and GOP congressional candidates promise to repeal the law if voters put them in power. Q: What’s the law done so far? A: Some parts, like the elimination of copayments for preventive care, are already in effect. Young adults can stay on their parents’ insurance up to age 26. Insurers can’t deny coverage to children with health problems. Limits on how much policies will pay out to each person over a lifetime are eliminated. And millions of older people already are saving hundreds of dollars through improved Medicare prescription benefits. Q: What else is coming? A: Unless Congress changes the law, starting in 2014 almost everyone will be required to be insured or pay a penalty. Subsidies will help people who can’t afford coverage. Most employers will face fines if they don’t offer coverage for their workers. Newly created insurance markets

million or more without insurance will not be docked. By 2016, about 4 million people will pay the penalty, the Congressional Budget Office has estimated. They would pay $695 for each uninsured adult or 2.5 percent of family income, up to $12,500 a year. The IRS can’t prosecute violators or place liens against them, however. Its only enforcement option may be withholding money from refunds. Q: What other new taxes are in the law? A: An assortment, including: Individuals making more than $200,000 a year and couples earning above $250,000 will get new payroll taxes. These people are also hit with a 3.8 percent tax on investment income. Medical-device makers will pay a 2.3 percent excise tax, which probably will get passed along to patients. Taxpayers will have to spend more on unreimbursed medical care before they can claim itemized deductions. Q: What are Republicans saying? A: “Obamacare was bad law yesterday. It’s bad law today,” Romney said. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said Obama deceived Americans by denying that the penalty on the uninsured amounts to a tax. The ruling marks “a fresh start on the road to repeal,” he declared. The Republican-led House already has voted for repeal — and its leaders plan to repeat that vote next month — but repeal is stuck there so long as Obama’s in the White House and Democrats lead the Senate. Q: What does Obama say? A: He says the decision upholds the fundamental principle that in the wealthiest nation on earth, no one should be ruined financially by an illness or accident. Obama called it “a victory for people all over this country whose lives will be more secure because of this law.” Q: If the law survives in Congress, will the health care issue finally be put to rest? A: No, there’s more to do. Although the law is supposed to help curb costs, the nation’s spending on health care already is enormous and sure to climb as the baby boom generation ages. Skyrocketing budget deficits will force lawmakers to look for ways to save on the Medicare program for seniors and Medicaid for the lowincome and disabled, and that means painful choices ahead.

Many elderly Americans are worried about the cuts in reimbursements paid to hospitals and insurers by Medicare, which have already started and will grow deeper. Q: Does the insurance mandate affect many people? A: Relatively few, because more than 8 in 10 Americans already have insurance coverage. Employers face their own mandate. Those with 50 or more workers will be fined if they don’t provide insurance for their employees, and opponents argue that will cost jobs at a time of high unemployment. Q: Why impose a mandate that’s unpopular and won’t require any action by most people? A: The mandate is designed to produce extra income from more healthy, paying customers so insurers can to hold down costs for everyone. Without the mandate, insurance companies probably would find it too expensive to comply with requirements to accept customers with preexisting health problems and not charge them extra. Companies sought to control their costs by cherry-picking the healthy as their customers. Q: Is the penalty for the uninsured a tax? A: It will be collected along with income tax each year by the Internal Revenue Service. But Obama and Democrats have avoided using the dreaded “t-word.” Instead, they referred to it as a penalty for failing to act responsibly and focused publicly on other legal justifications. Before the Supreme Court, however, the Obama administration also argued that the law was constitutional under the federal government’s power to levy taxes. The court rejected the Obama administration’s other two legal arguments for the law but accepted the tax one. Still, most of the 20

will make it easier for individuals and small businesses to buy affordable coverage. And Medicaid will be expanded to cover more low-income people. Insurers will be prohibited from denying coverage to people with medical problems or charging those people more. They won’t be able to charge women more than men, either. During the transition to 2014, a special program for people with pre-existing health problems helps these people get coverage. The law is expected to bring coverage to about 30 million of the estimated 50 million uninsured people in the U.S. Overall, more than 9 in 10 of the eligible population — citizens and legal residents — will be covered. Q: Why will some people still go without insurance? A: It’s estimated that more than 20 million people will still be without coverage, including illegal immigrants, people who don’t sign up and choose to face the penalties instead and those who can’t afford coverage even with the subsidies. That number could be higher, depending on whether any states decline the Medicaid expansion. Q: Do people like the law? A: Not much. Some parts of the law have proven popular. But the individual insurance mandate is widely disliked. Each time The Associated Press has asked in polls, more than 8 in 10 Americans have said the government should not have the right to require everyone to buy health insurance. And the public has tilted against the law as a whole over the two years since it was passed. About half opposed it and a third were in favor in an AP-GfK poll shortly before the Supreme Court ruled.

Eight-acre garden Duncans have 1,200 tomato plants, grow 14 different vegetables BY STEVE BEAVERS

If it can be grown, it most likely is in the garden of Rufus and Roberta Duncan. The Macedonia Community couple have just about anything a person would want from a garden on their 8-acre plot near Jacinto. “It’s a full-time job and all that we can handle,” said Rufus Duncan Jr. looking over 1,200 tomato plants. “We spend a good part of the day out here.” That good part of the day extends from the last of April through September. Following a trip to Florida in March and then a camping outing to J.P. Coleman State Park in April, the Duncans start getting down and dirty the mid part of April. “The busiest time is July 4 to September when most things start coming in,” added the 69 year-old retired truck driver. As a visitor approaches the massive garden, there are blueberry trees the Duncans “are going to try,” then rows and rows of tomato plants. “Tomatoes and watermelons are my favorite, but we try to grow a little bit of everything that people want,” said Duncan. “He has his own method of setting out the plants and won’t let anybody else do it,” added Roberta. Rufus, who was born on the site he calls home today, puts out every single plant himself. “That way I can put them down the way I want,” he said. A water loop irrigation system “sketched out after talking to someone at Mississippi State University on the telephone” waters the many plants two hours a day from a lake. “Tomatoes need plenty of calcium, phosphorus, potash and potassium,” said the life-long farmer. “I don’t use a lot of nitrogen.” “Too much fertilizer will burn them up,” added Roberta. The Duncans grow three main brands of “maters” such as Big Beef, Christy’s and Mountain Variety. Besides tomatoes and watermelons, the couple plants seven kinds of pepper, squash, beans, peas, corn, cabbage, eggplants, potatoes, cauliflower, okra, cantaloupes and broccoli. They also have 12 beehives. “That sounds time consuming, but it’s not,” said Rufus. “I grew up on a farm and we have always had a good size garden to support us and our neighbors.” The Duncans, who sell a majority of their crops at the Farmers Market on Fulton Drive, would like one day to have a pavilion at their home where people could come and buy there. One can tell the pair are serious about their garden. Two utility lights are in place so the couple “can pick to 10-11 p.m. some nights.” “You have to want to work if you work for yourself,” said Rufus. “On these 100 degree days like we have been having, you have to enjoy what you do.”

Here’s a quick, easy way to clean a catfish There’s no two ands or buts about it. I like things simple. Maybe it’s because I’m an old school kind of guy that hasn’t necessarily evolved with modern trends, but it seems everything these days has to be so complicated. From what we do at work to the things we encounter on our leisure time, there seems to be so many unnecessary steps to follow and red tape to unravel. You would think things would be much easier and less complex considering the advancement of technology and the amount of knowledge floating around out there. Perhaps it is for those not as technology challenged as I.

B u t , the way I see it, the simple approach has several adDavid vantages. Green S t r e s s will be Outdoors less likely, more time can be spent on the things you enjoy doing the most and, in some instances, there will be more money left in your pocket since new modern era technology driven products usually come with a high price tag. As I was saying earlier, there’s a lot of information floating around out there. But be forewarned, not all of it is accurate in

how to do something easier or more efficiently. I’ve been writing outdoor columns going on about five years now and I’m sure I’ve made a mistake or two along the way, but while looking over a popular outdoor magazine the other day I came across an article telling how to skin an eating sized catfish. It was supposed to be an easy way to clean a catfish but, in reality, the author’s way of doing the task made it much more complicated, time consuming and added more work to the process than is actually necessary. He recommended placing a catfish on a 2 by 6 three-ft. board in length at waist height and then

uses a knife to cut the skin all the way around the head just in front of the gills before making another slit all the way down the fish’s back. Once this is done, a 16-penny nail would be driven into the skull to secure it in place, the dorsal fin would be cut off, and then with the board braced to your waist and the tail pointed toward you, take a pair of fish skinning pliers to grasp the skin and pull it down to the tail and off. Remove the fish from the board, hold the head in one hand and the body in the other, bend the head sharply down to break the spine, and bend the body back upward and twist to separate the head from the body. Then, open the

belly with the knife and remove the remaining viscera from the cavity, and rinse well. “Woo,” that’s way too much work. Made me tired just reading his instructions. Thankfully, there’s a much easier way to clean a catfish. Grab a hold of a fish in much the same way you would in removing a hook but have the palm of your hand on top of the head in the direction of the fish’s whiskers. Slit the skin all the way around behind the gills, pull off with skinning pliers, then with a knife cut at a 45 degree angle behind the dorsal fin to the spine in the direction of the mouth, snap and pull downward abruptly, us-

ing both hands. Rinse and you’re done. If the cut behind the top fin is made properly, the innards will come out the same time the head is separated from the body. Sounds a whole lot easier, doesn’t it? Granted, there’s more than one way to skin a cat. But why make things harder than they have to be?

Habitat destruction remains box turtle’s biggest problem BY JAMES L. CUMMINGS Conservation Corner

The term “box turtle” can refer to either the Asian box turtle or to the North American box turtle. Box turtles are characterized by their domed shell which is hinged at the bottom. This hinging allows the turtle to tightly close its shell providing better protection from predators. While this domed, hinged shell is common to both genera, the turtles differ in habitat, behavior and appearance. The North American box turtle, which is what we will be referring to in this article, is omnivo-

rous. Their sharp eyes and keen sense of smell help them to find foods such as snails, berries, fungi, slugs, worms, roots, flowers, fish, frogs, snakes, salamanders, birds and eggs. Their feasting preference varies by season but there is a definite trend as to age. The young are primarily carnivorous leading them to hunt for their food in ponds and streams during their first 5 to 7 years, while the adults usually feed on land as they tend to be more herbivorous. However, box turtles eat no green leaves. Temperatures tend to determine activity rates. The preferred body tem-

perature of the box turtle is between 84˚ and 100˚F. This is why in the heat of summer, box turtles restrict their activities to mainly mornings or after it rains. If they get too uncomfortable in the heat, they will hide under decaying logs and leaves, crawl into abandoned mammal burrows or dig into the mud. In the spring and fall, with the cooler temperatures, the box turtle will forage during daylight hours, sometimes stopping to bask in the sun for warmth. Box turtles are active in daytime and will scoop out a shallow bed for the night. Box turtles go into hi-

bernation by November in the Northern regions, but remain active on into December in the warmer Southern climates. To hibernate, they will dig up to 2 feet deep. They often return to the same place to hibernate and sometimes more than one turtle will share this place. Hibernation typically lasts until April. These turtles have a home range with a diameter of 750 feet or less in which they normally stay. For unknown reasons, they will occasionally journey beyond their range and will find themselves within the space of another turtle. Though this seems intrusive,

when found together, these turtles show no antagonism towards each other. The biggest problem facing the box turtle is habitat destruction. Woodlands converted into farmland have reduced the range of these turtles in many states. The remaining available land is often fragmented with housing projects and roads. These obstacles break up the turtles’ habitat. A further threat includes the capturing and selling of wild-born box turtles. Some states, such as Indiana, have laws against the collection of turtles from the wild and in

many states it is illegal to keep them without a permit. Collecting box turtles from the wild may cause irreparable damage to the turtle population because they are already hindered by a low reproductive rate compounded by their inability to easily find a mate.

‘Lady Richardson’ saw much action during Civil War BY TOM PARSON NPS Ranger

The Lady Richardson. Sounds like an English woman of title, doesn’t she? She wasn’t exactly a peer of the nobility, but she was certainly not one to be ignored or to go unnoticed. Whenever she traveled, she was led by a four-horse team and she always had at least eight strapping young men in attendance. Oh, and by the way, she weighed about 2,800 pounds, was painted flat black and had her name in white paint across her cast iron rear end. The “Lady Richardson” was a cannon, or, to be more specific, a 20-pounder Parrott Rifle. Named for the man who designed the weapon, Robert Parker Parrott, the Parrott rifle came in a number of sizes. On the small end was the 10-pounder, which fired, naturally, a 10-pound projectile. At the other end of the scale was a massive 300-pounder Parrott used by the Union to subdue Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor. The 10 and 20 pounders could be used in the field and were drawn by horses, but the others were so big they were only used in fortified positions. Company “D,” 1st Missouri Light Artillery was known as Richardson’s Battery, for their commander, Capt. Henry Richardson. They fought at Fort Donelson and again at Shiloh, acquitting themselves quite well on both occasions. It was not unusual for gunners to name their cannon, a tradition about as old as gunpowder it-

A pair of 20-pounder Parrotts are hitched to limbers and horses. self. There are two versions to the story of how the “Lady Richardson” got her name. One claims it was named for the wife of Sen. William A. Richardson of Illinois. Most of the men in the unit were from Illinois and they supposedly were honoring the senator’s spouse by putting her name on the breech of the cannon. I don’t buy into the story myself and am inclined to believe the other version, which claims the gun was named for another Mrs. Richardson. Capt. Richardson was a married man too, and I can just see him trying to explain to his better half why some other woman’s name is on one of his cannon. It’s like those pilots from WWII who used to put their gal’s name on the nose of their fighter or bomber. How many do you suppose named their plane for their senator’s wife? Richardson’s Battery was in the thick of the

A 20-pounder Parrott Rifle at Gettysburg was one of the rare survivors. fighting during the Battle of Corinth. Early in the morning of Oct. 3, the four guns, all 20-pounders, were unlimbered on Oliver’s Hill about 2½ miles from downtown. The lead and iron was flying and eventually the outmanned Federals had to retreat. Richardson’s four guns were attached to their limbers and were being hauled off when disaster struck. “Owing to the cow-

ardly conduct” of one of the gun crew, the cannon slammed into a tree and the limber pole was broken. The pole is what the four horses are attached to and without it, the cannon could not be pulled to safety. In a matter of moments, the rifle was overrun and became the property of the Confederate States of America. The capture of a cannon was a big thing. A trophy like that

showed the whole army the regiment responsible for the capture was full of courageous men, brave enough to charge into the face of a firing battery. The only problem was there were a number of regiments claiming to have captured the cannon. Because of the heavy fighting, the Confederate brigades and regiments were mixed together and it was unclear who had actually won the honor. The first man to reach the cannon jumped aboard and straddled the barrel, though he “immediately dismounted to cool off as it was a very hot gun.” Sgt. W.G. Whitfield of the 35th Alabama made persistent claims that he was the man who captured the piece, though men of the 9th Arkansas and 22nd Mississippi insisted it was they who captured the cannon. Brig. Gens. Albert Rust and John Bowen got into an argument over who

had won the prize. Gen. Bowen must have won the argument. Not long after Oliver’s Hill was captured, he had his men harness four captured mules to the cannon and haul it away. The war of words undoubtedly drew the attention of the army commander, Gen. Earl Van Dorn, for soon the “Lady Richardson” was handed over to a division that had not even been involved in the fight. Wade’s Missouri Battery took possession of the 20-pounder, but was forced to give it back to the Union the following year when members lost their guns near Vicksburg. Whatever happened to the “Lady Richardson”? A newspaper article claimed she was seen one more time, in 1897, on the steamer “City of Paducah” loaded with cannon destined for the new Shiloh National Military Park. Alas, it was not so. The park has never had a 20-pounder Parrott in its collection, let alone a celebrity like the “Lady.” The story may have a sad ending. There were about 300 of the 20-pounders cast during the war, but only 15 are known to still exist today. Where did the rest go? There was a time when every courthouse square boasted a cannon or two, but the scrap metal drives during World War II claimed a great many guns. More than likely, she was melted down and became a part of a warship in the Pacific or a bomb dropped over Europe. Either way, she was a fighter to the end.

Chronicling the birth and death of the river port of Eastport (This item, originally published in the Tishomingo County News, Iuka, Dec. 9, 1976, was written by Irene Barnes and transcribed by RaNae Vaughn.) All ghost towns are not in the west. Eastport, Mississippi, located at the head of steamboat navigation on the Mississippi side of the Tennessee River in Tishomingo County, is extinct. The river port landing there is now flooded by the waters of Pickwick Dam Reservoir. Eastport, so early citizens have told, was in two separate localities. The first settlement was made on the water’s edge and a disastrous flood came, sweeping away much of the town, but undaunted, the citizens built a better town on the hill, overlooking the bend of the river with Bear Creek in the distance. A more beautiful location could never have been found! Here on this beautiful bluff, overlooking the scenic Tennessee River, was built a town of good homes, brick sidewalks, two churches -- Methodist and Baptist, a Masonic Lodge, a hotel called The Mansion House, and a female college in which were taught higher mathematics, mental and moral philosophy, Latin, French, fine sewing, the making of wax and hair flowers, and various other subjects. The school record of the Eastport Female Institute in 1857 with Miss J. B. Lindsey as teacher, shows the following students: M. Sanders, E. Sanders, L. E. Whitaker, L. E. Rose, L. Barrett, B. Barrett, F. Winn, R. Winn, Charles Wammack, J. Hughes, E. Biffle, F. Robinson, Jn. Wammack, R. McDaniel, L. McDaniel, A. Simcox, T. Simcox, Ida Christian, L. Coburn, and P. Coburn. Eastport was given its

name because it served as the port of contact with other towns and RaNae villages. It Vaughn was to this shipping Historically and supply Speaking port that plantation owners and farmers brought their produce for shipment to market and it was from this port that manufactured goods and supplies from other parts of the country were obtained. Wagon trains traveled by day and camped at well-known camping grounds at night. A trip from Tupelo to Eastport usually required three days and nights. Five or six steamboats at a time would often be tied up at Eastport, unloading merchandise and reloading with commodities for shipment to market. An old timer once told of a trip he made to Eastport when he was 10 years old with his Uncle John from Itawamba County, Mississippi, in a steer wagon. It took six days to make the trip, carrying six bales of cotton in an old homemade tar wagon. The old timer said there were 15 or 20 stores with enormous stocks of groceries and hardware. After Uncle John sold the cotton to a Mr. Briggs and was buying supplies to carry home, he noticed Uncle John frequently visited the open barrels of whiskey stored in a side room. It was raining that day and Uncle John had worn buckskin pants. As they got wet and stretched, he kept cutting off the legs with his knife. When they stopped to camp that night, Uncle John’s britches got dry and crawled up to his knees. He had to go back

to Eastport and buy him another pair. As the last of the Chickasaw Indians left in 1837 for their new home in Indian Territory, many white families moved into the country to establish homes and take advantage of the newly opened territory. Although no data has been found on record to prove its population, tradition says Eastport was a thriving town of some 2,000 people. There were manufacturers, carpenters, shoe makers, saddle makers, tanners, millers, merchants, cabinet makers, physicians, druggists, farmers, and traders who came to settle at Eastport. Two governors of the State of Mississippi first settled at Eastport. Governor John M. Stone came to Eastport about 1854 from Milan, Tennessee, where he had been a school teacher. He clerked in a store in Eastport for a time before moving to Iuka to become station agent for the Memphis & Charleston Railroad, later known as the Southern Railroad. Governor Robert Lowery moved from South Carolina with his father to Eastport in 1840 when he was nine years old. He then went to Smith County at the age of 10 years to live with an uncle, and from Smith County, he became Governor in 1881. George Price Hammerly, born in Athens, Ala., in 1829, came to Eastport, Miss., at the age of 21 years and accepted a position as a salesman for A. T. Matthews. Mr. Matthews came to Eastport from Virginia. John H. Doan, a merchant, was born in South Carolina. Mr. and Mrs. Doan located at Eastport where they reared 10 children. Among others at East-

port were: J. M. Nelson, merchant from S.C.; Thomas Billings, grocer, Tenn.; John Briggs, merchant, Ireland; George Wingo, saddler, Ala.; J. Wheelock, carpenter, Mass.; W. B. Terry, planter, Tenn.; J. H. Hill, trader, England; John Barnett, farmer, S.C.; W. H. Muse, merchant, N.C.; Samuel Dewoody, druggist, Tenn.; R. T. Rutledge, merchant, S.C.; H. S. Brown, merchant, Va.; George Shehan, clerk, Ireland; Amber Bugg, farmer, Ga.; A. M. Scruggs, physician, Tenn.; J. B. Moore, physician, S.C.; Dan Castleberry, farmer, Ga.; J. McMahan, farmer, Ireland; G. W. Harvey, physician, Ireland. Eastport had her part in the Civil War. After the Battle of Shiloh, the Federal gunboats pushed up the river and assembled at Eastport. A report from Brig. Gen. Sherman’s headquarters at Shiloh, dated April 2, 1862, says “Eastport Landing during the late freshet must have been about 12 feet water, but at the present stage the landing is the best I have seen on the Tennessee River. The levee is clear of trees and snags, and a hundred boats could land there without confusion.” His object was to dislodge the enemy from batteries recently erected near Eastport. The old “breast works” thrown up throughout the hills surrounding Eastport are still plainly visible and souvenir hunters still rake the hill sides for relics of the Battle at Eastport. A detachment of 500 men and three cannons had been sent from Gen. Forrest’s headquarters in North Alabama to Eastport. They took a position on the hill overlooking the river landing and at daybreak opened fire on the Federal gunboats ly-

ing at anchor in the river. The Federals cut loose from anchor and pushed off to drift out of range of the cannon fire. This left the Union soldiers in camp near the landing in panic. Many Negroes had attached themselves to the Union forces, and remembering what had happened to the Negroes in another battle before, they were seized with consternation. A great number of Negroes plunged into the river and tried to swim to the retreating gunboats and hundreds drowned, according to the report. Forrest’s men, who were few in number compared with the Union forces, soon withdrew, having accomplished their mission of putting fear into the Union forces. The main struggle at Eastport occurred Oct. 14, 1862. The first post office was established at Eastport on May 30, 1842, with John Buttrill as postmaster. Those who followed were: Samuel Dewoody, Sept. 23, 1850; Wm. C. Phillips, April 30, 1856; Joseph S. Leake, Feb. 12, 1857; Wm. C. Phillips, Aug. 6, 1857; James H. Gillespie, May 5, 1858; John B. Alexander, Nov. 9, 1865; Benjamin Bence, Aug. 18, 1869; Wm. H. Banner, June 15, 1877; John W. Price, Aug. 18, 1879; Pinckney H. Davis, Sept. 13, 1880; Wm. H. banner, Oct. 12, 1881. The office was “discontinued to Iuka” on Dec. 18, 1883, but was re-established April 28, 1887, with Amelia Price as postmaster. It was discontinued again to Iuka on Nov. 9, 1889, but was re-established Feb. 20, 1892, with Rufus Skinner as postmaster. The post office was finally discontinued on Dec. 12, 1892. Mr. Skinner was also the last merchant left after Eastport had met its doom. In 1892, he still

conducted a general mercantile business in an old rundown shanghaied building, some 30 feet wide and 75 feet long. A number of similar buildings were along what had been “Main Street,” but they were being used by colored families who had taken possession of them for living quarters. A few comparatively nice dwellings still remained at this time and were occupied by local farmers. All went well with Eastport until the coming of the railroad. When the railroad surveys were made those in charge of the enterprise made propositions to the people of Eastport looking to building of the road by that place. They asked for a donation of $50,000 as a bonus. The shortsighted people at Eastport refused to do anything, probably thinking the railroad would necessarily be forced to come by, and at that time, they had good transportation by water anywhere. After it was too late, they saw their error and read the doom of their town. The railroad was completed in 1855. The hand of time has completed its work and now the town of Eastport is no more. Eastport is now a boat dock and fishing resort. To those who know its history and love its stories and legends, Eastport must always be an enshrined place. It was through this port that many of our ancestors came more than a hundred years ago to tame the wild country. In its ruin, there is glory.

Grad misses Southern hospitality with friends


DEAR ABBY: What is considered good manners when you enter the home of a 20-something Northerner? I’m a graduate student who recently moved from the South to the East Coast. When I visit the homes of my Northern friends, I feel they are being rude for not inviting me to come in and sit down. When visitors come to my place, I ask if I can take their coats, ask them to please sit and make themselves comfortable and offer something to drink. It feels strange to enter someone’s living space and not hear these pleasantries. It also makes me feel as if I’m imposing. If others arrive around the same time, I try to follow their cues, but I still find it uncomfortable to just plop down and make myself at home. Should I just get over it? -- FISH OUT OF WATER DEAR FISH OUT OF WATER: If you have been invited to someone’s home, then you are welcome. That your visit doesn’t begin with the customary rituals you’re used to does not mean that your host is rude. Yes, you should “get over it.” Just go with the flow -- in time you will adjust. DEAR ABBY: I don’t have a car. I can’t afford one at this time. For the last two years a friend has been doing me a favor by taking me grocery shopping every week.

I buy her dinner sometimes as a thank-you for her great help. Recently, I got to meet a group of her friends. She introduced me to every single person by going over the whole history of my not having a car, and how she has taken me grocery shopping every week. All her friends began praising her for her kindness. I was upset and embarrassed that rather than introduce me as a friend she instead portrayed me as an object of her charity. I always thought she enjoyed our get-togethers. She used to rebuff any attempts on my part to make our shopping trips less frequent.

A few years later, she quit her job and began drinking and smoking heavily.

But it was intended for my education. Am I wrong to be upset? -DISAPPOINTED SON IN FORT GRATIOT, MICH. DEAR DISAPPOINTED SON: Of course you’re not wrong to be upset. You wouldn’t be human if you weren’t. However, now that you know the money you were promised won’t be there, you need to start researching ways to finance completing your education. A place to begin would be your nearest library -- or online. Also, many schools allow students to work parttime on campus to help with the cost of classes, so look into that, too.

In 1863, the Civil War Battle of Gettysburg, resulting in a Union victory, began in Pennsylvania. In 1867, Canada became a self-governing dominion of Great Britain as the British North America Act took effect. In 1910, Chicago’s original Comiskey Park held its opening day under the name White Sox Park. (The home team lost to the St. Louis Browns, 2-0.) In 1942, the First Battle of El Alamein began during World War II. Tommy Dorsey and His Orchestra and vocalist Frank Sinatra recorded “There Are Such Things” in New York for Victor Records. In 1946, the United States exploded a 20-kiloton atomic bomb near Bikini Atoll in the Pacific. In 1961, Diana, the princess of Wales, was born in Sandringham, England. (She died in a 1997 car crash in Paris at age 36.) In 1962, the African nations of Burundi and Rwanda became independent of Belgium. In 1972, the rock musical “Hair” closed on Broadway. In 1980, “O Canada” was proclaimed the national anthem of Canada. In 1987, President Ronald Reagan nominated federal appeals court judge Robert H. Bork to the Supreme Court, setting off a tempestuous confirmation process that ended with Bork’s rejection by the Senate. In 1991, President George H.W. Bush nominated federal appeals court judge Clarence Thomas to the Supreme

Court, beginning an ultimately successful confirmation process marked by allegations of sexual harassment. The Warsaw Pact formally disbanded. Actor Michael Landon, 54, died in Malibu, Calif. In 2004, actor Marlon Brando died in Los Angeles at age 80.

Ten years ago The world’s first permanent war crimes tribunal, the International Criminal Court, came into existence. A U.S. airstrike against several villages in Afghanistan killed 48 civilians, according to Afghan officials (a U.S. investigation confirmed 34 deaths). A Russian passenger jet collided with a cargo plane over southern Germany, killing all 69 people on the Russian plane and the two cargo jet pilots. Chile’s Supreme Court ruled that former dictator General Augusto Pinochet was suffering from dementia and dropped all charges against him for human rights violations during his regime.

Five years ago Russian President Vladimir Putin arrived in Kennebunkport, Maine, for an overnight visit at the Bush family estate and talks with President George W. Bush. Princes William and Harry celebrated the life of their mother, Princess Diana, on what would have been her 46th birthday with a concert they’d organized at London’s Wembley Stadium.

Capsule reviews of ‘Magic Mike’, other films Associated Press

“The Amazing SpiderMan” — It’s impossible to avoid the comparisons, so we may as well just get them out of the way early so we can move on. This reboot — Prequel? New chapter? It’s hard to decide what to call it — is pretty much different in every way from the staggeringly successful Marvel Comics-inspired trilogy that preceded it. The basics are the same: A high school kid gets bitten by a scientifically modified spider, discovers he has newfound super powers, decides to use them as a vigilante crime fighter and takes to the streets of New York in an unforgivingly tight red-and-blue suit. But in terms of tone, characters, performances and even visual effects, “The Amazing Spider-Man” feels like its own separate entity. It may not be as transporting an experience as those earlier films, especially the first two, but it finds a distinct voice. Much of that has to do with the central performance from Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker. In the hands of Tobey Maguire, who originated the role in “Spider-Man” a decade ago, Peter was nerdy, scrawny, insecure — that’s how his everyman relatability manifested itself. Garfield plays Peter as more of a misunderstood outsider, a rebel with a chip on his shoulder. And that slightly arrogant attitude gives the whole movie a restless, reckless energy and a welcome sense of danger. At the helm, Marc Webb is a very different sort of director. He may not have sounded like the most obvious choice for a hugely

anticipated blockbuster based on his only previous feature, the romantic comedy charmer “(500) Days of Summer.” His big set pieces may lack some of the imagination that director Sam Raimi brought, but they’ll do. More importantly, though, he conveys an emotional truth, a pervasive sense of humanity, which may be an even tougher feat in this kind of fantastical scenario. Emma Stone is bright as ever as Peter’s love interest, Gwen Stacy, with Rhys Ifans nicely underplaying his role as SpiderMan’s nemesis. PG-13 for sequences of action and violence. 138 minutes. Thre e stars out of four. ■■■

“Beasts of the Southern Wild” — This is sheer poetry on screen: an explosion of joy in the midst of startling squalor and one of the most visceral, original films to come along in a while. The story of a little girl named Hushpuppy (Quvenzhane Wallis) living on a remote, primal strip of eroding land in the southernmost reaches of Louisiana is so ambitious and so accomplished, it’s amazing that it’s only the first feature film from director Benh Zeitlin. Working from a script he co-wrote with Lucy Alibar, based on her play, Zeitlin deftly mixes a sense of childhood wonder with the harsh realities of the adult world. His film is at once dreamlike and brutal, ethereal yet powerfully emotional. And he’s coaxed some surprisingly strong performances from a couple of inexperienced actors he had the daring to place front-and-center.

Wallis, who was only 6 when shooting began, has a fierce presence beyond her years but also a plucky, girlish sweetness. This is Hushpuppy’s fairy tale but she’s no damsel in distress. Her mother left long ago; now she and her ailing, alcoholic father, Wink (Dwight Henry), are living together on the narrow and ruggedly beautiful Isle de Jean Charles, known affectionately by the rag-tag locals as “The Bathtub.” As her father becomes consumed by poor health and drink — and with a damaging storm on the way — Hushpuppy must figure out how to survive on her own. PG-13 for thematic material including child imperilment, some disturbing images, language and brief sexuality. 91 minutes. Four stars out of four. ■■■

“Magic Mike” — Steven Soderbergh makes movies about sexy subjects, then strips away the sexiness about them. He is fascinated by process, often to a clinical extent. In recent years this has been true of “The Girlfriend Experience” (starring reallife porn star Sasha Grey as a high-priced Manhattan call girl), “Contagion” (about a viral outbreak that claims lives worldwide) and “Haywire” (featuring mixed-martial artist Gina Carano as a special-ops agent seeking revenge for a betrayal). Even the glitzy, star-studded “Ocean’s 11,” one of Soderbergh’s most pleasingly escapist films, takes its time laying out every detail of its ambitious Las Vegas casino heist. Now he’s directed “Magic Mike,” about the

Horoscopes Sunday, July 1, 2012 BY HOLIDAY MATHIS Creators Syndicate

The waxing Sagittarius moon will build anticipation until the release of Tuesday’s full Capricorn moon. There are times when expectation ruins the fun of what actually occurs, but not today. If anything, imagining what might occur makes things more magical, as long as you don’t get too attached to one particular outcome. ARIES (March 21-April 19). You may feel like you’re drifting from your joy, but a little effort and intention are all you need to get back on track. Think of what you’ve done in your life, what you do well and what you are passionate about. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll be exposed to new ideas. Learning is a process. Try to explain your newfound knowledge to a child in a few sentences. If you can do this, you really understand it yourself. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your easy social manner is legendary. Be careful not to talk too much, though, as you’ll be more respected for listening. You’ll be most effective by speaking only 30 to 40 percent of the time. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Narrow your focus. Trying to do too much today will be less than satisfying. Find a tiny segment of your grand plan and get deeper into it. This will give you a sense of accomplishment. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There’s something to be gained from winning back what was lost. Maybe it’s a customer, or maybe it’s a lost love. In either case, the way back is the same: a bold gesture that puts the other person’s needs before yours.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Suggest a cut-off date for the project you’re working on, or it may take over indefinitely. Establishing a deadline will put you in the right headspace for a prompt, successful ending. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll throw plenty of positive energy toward the person you like. You’ll look at this person’s face admiringly -- and not just the eyes, but everything. Infatuation can be exhilarating. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Genuine compliments are charming. Phony compliments are manipulative. You will know the difference and will react accordingly. Also, you’ll give only the most sincere words to the ones you appreciate. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll make things happen in your world by resonating at a cheerful emotional tone. This is easy to do since positive influences are all around you. They exist because you love to feel upbeat and full of energy. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll maximize each connection you make. You won’t even bother to contact people unless you feel you have something in common with them or that you could add to their scene in some way that will matter to them. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Realistic goals are not so easy to come up with in your current ambitious mood. Whatever you want to accomplish, find the halfway mark and shoot for that milestone in the days to come. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You like to do favors, but taking too much onto your plate is counterproductive to your helping nature. You have a strong feeling about when you should say no, so honor that.


cheesy world of male stripping in the cheesy setting of Tampa, Fla. Yes, the dance numbers themselves exude masculine, muscular heat — how could they not with guys like Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer and Joe Manganiello strutting on stage in barely-there costumes? — but Soderbergh and writer Reid Carolin take us behind the scenes and linger over the mundane minutiae of the performers’ daily lives. They go thong shopping. They rehearse their routines. They lift weights backstage. And they count their dollar bills when their work is done. Even the after-hours hook-ups with liquored-up ladies from the audience seem like one more obligatory step, like brushing your teeth before going to bed. It all seems glamorous and thrilling at first, though, for Pettyfer’s character, Adam, who becomes known as The Kid. A neophyte in this neon-colored world, he serves as our guide once the more established Mike (Tatum) recruits him to be a dancer at the Club Xquisite male revue. R for pervasive sexual content, brief graphic nudity, language and some drug use. 110 minutes. Three stars out of four. ■■■

“People Like Us” — It’s that increasingly rare kind of film: an adult drama. The filmmakers seem so nervous about this prospect that they fill the movie with actionfilm editing and a camera that moves so restlessly through domestic life that you’d think it lost its keys. It comes from the screenwriting duo of Alex

Kurtzman (who makes his directorial debut) and Roberto Orci, who wrote the 2009 “Star Trek” reboot, among other blockbusters. Chris Pine stars as Sam, a glib New Yorker reluctantly summoned home to Los Angeles for his father’s funeral, where he discovers that his rock producer dad secretly fathered a daughter (Elizabeth Banks). She’s a recovering alcoholic working as a bartender, trying desperately to get by as a single mom to a sarcastic, troublemaking 11-year-old (Michael Hall D’Addario). Sam befriends them without revealing their shared roots. It’s a soapy set-up of a familiar, heart-rending melodrama. But it owes much of its charm to the excellent Banks, who enters the film like a powerhouse, striding in heels and a black miniskirt to the principal’s office to pick up her son, while chastising a pair of ogling students: “I know your mothers,” she says. She does much to enliven this awakening of a sibling relationship, forged as much over tacos as through blood. PG-13 for language, some drug use and brief sexuality. 114 minutes. Two and a half stars out of four. ■■■

“Ted” — A teddy bear who smokes pot, parties with hookers, beds pop stars and spews profanity in a New England accent as thick as chowdah? Such a creature could only come from the blissfully twisted mind of “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane, confidently making his feature directing debut. If you love his show, you’ll probably love this: In a lot of ways,

“Ted” feels like a live-action, big-screen version of “Family Guy” with its popculture references and inappropriate racial humor, flashbacks and non sequiturs. (MacFarlane co-wrote the script with two of his longtime collaborators on the series, Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild.) He’s even included the same sort of full orchestral arrangements of jaunty transitional music between scenes. And Ted, whom MacFarlane himself voices, happens to sound exactly like Peter Griffin (which would have been obvious even without a throwaway joke spelling it out for us). Still, you chuck enough of this stuff at a wall and some of it will stick. Most of it does, actually, for most of the time, with only a few of the one-liners showing signs of strain. “Ted” also happens to be sweeter than you might expect, despite the predictability of its formula. Mark Wahlberg stars as John, whose wish upon a star as a lonely kid in the ‘80s turned his Christmasmorning teddy bear into a walking, talking friend for life. Decades later, John and Ted are still best buddies living in Boston; despite the adolescent attachment, John has managed to carve out a healthy, four-year relationship with the beautiful and exceedingly patient Lori (Mila Kunis, who voices awkward teenage daughter Meg on “Family Guy”). But by this point, something’s gotta give. R for crude and sexual content, pervasive language and some drug use. 105 minutes. Three stars out of four.
