Abandoned phone leads to arrest BY JEBB JOHNSTON firstname.lastname@example.org
Corinth police recently tracked down a shoplifter who they say left her cell phone at the scene of the crime. Heather Andrews, 35, of Borroum Circle, Corinth, was arrested on Monday and charged
with felony shoplifting. She posted $3,000 bond and was released. According to the Corinth Police Department’s report on the case, a Walgreens employee discovered a cell phone in a bathroom in the South Harper Road business on June
28. After further investigation, including examination of surveillance footage, the store determined that the owner of the phone had taken cosmetic and hygiene products into the bathroom, removed the packaging and left the store with the products. The packaging was
found in a garbage can in the bathroom. The cell phone led to identification of the suspect. The stolen products totaled about $138. Detective Capt. Ralph Dance said it constituted a felony regardless of the amount because it is a third of-
fense. In other recent arrests: ■ Brandon K. Porterfield, 33, of County Road 300, Glen, was arrested on Tuesday and charged with felony possession of a controlled substance folPlease see ARREST | 2
Extreme heat doesn’t have to shut down outdoor activities BY STEVE BEAVERS email@example.com

Holiday Slide There is nothing like a water slide to cool things one off during a hot summer day. Morgan Harmon took advantage of the opportunity by plunging into the water during the July 4th Celebration at Central Pentecostal Church.
The heat isn’t keeping those determined to stay fit from their favorite activities. It’s business as usual for those who like to run or play golf. “You don’t have to stop because of the heat,” said Corinth Coca-Cola Class 10K co-director Amy Smith. “With the proper precautions you should be able to run yearround.” With recent temperatures rising to triple digits, it is tempting to abandon fitness plans and just lounge around in the AC. That option won’t make one healthier or any fitter though. “Your body gets conditioned to the heat,” said golfer Frieda Stanford, who plays every time she can at Hillandale Country Club. “There are shade trees on a golf course and golfers are in a cart a majority of the time ... you just have to take it easy.” “The heat doesn’t bother me,” added Hillandale golfer Dick Spink. “I play more now than I ever have.” Smith suggests that run-
ners can continue their fitness program by “running in the morning before the heat is too bad.” “If you feel like you are getting too hot take walking breaks and remember to drink plenty of liquids before working out,” said Smith. Tips for those wanting to remain active and beat the summer heat are: ■ Pace yourself until you get accustomed to the weather. As your body adapts to the heat, you can gradually increase the length and intensity of your workouts and exercises. If you have a chronic medical condition or take medications, ask your doctor if you need to take additional precautions. ■ Stay hydrated at all time. It’s easy to forget to take a swig of water once the training starts, but it is important that you keep yourself hydrated while exercising. You lose bodily fluids while you are sweating and those need to get replaced. Sports drinks are especially recommended if you are going for longer and Please see HEAT | 2

An impressive lineup is planned as an annual concert series begins Sunday night.

with friend Chad Smith. The trio, which met at a Nashville music conference, have been ministering together for over 10 years. Their message is all about Christ and what he did on the cross. Breaking Grass, a local northeast Mississippi group, will continue the series on July 15. Made up of Cody Farrar on guitar, Tyler White on fiddle, Thelton Vanderford on banjo, Zach Wooten on mandolin and Britt Sheffield on bass, Breaking Grass is a relatively new band with one goal in mind — to make music that all ages can enjoy.

Today in history Today is Saturday, July 7, the 189th day of 2012. There are 177 days left in the year. Todayâ€™s Highlight in History: On July 7, 1937, the Second Sino-Japanese War erupted into fullscale conflict as Imperial Japanese forces attacked the Marco Polo Bridge in Beijing. (The end of the fighting coincided with the conclusion of World War II.) On this date: In 1846, U.S. annexation of California was proclaimed at Monterey after the surrender of a Mexican garrison. In 1865, four people were hanged in Washington, D.C., for conspiring with John Wilkes Booth to assassinate President Abraham Lincoln. In 1887 (New Style calendar), artist Marc Chagall was born in Vitebsk in present-day Belarus. In 1898, the United States annexed Hawaii. In 1919, the first Transcontinental Motor Convoy, in which a U.S. Army convoy of motorized vehicles crossed the United States, departed Washington, D.C. In 1930, construction began on Boulder Dam (later Hoover Dam). In 1941, U.S. forces took up positions in Iceland, Trinidad and British Guiana to forestall Nazi invasion, even though the United States had not yet entered the World War II. In 1952, the Republican National Convention, which nominated Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower for president and Sen. Richard Nixon for vice president, opened in Chicago. In 1969, Canadaâ€™s House of Commons gave final approval to the Official Languages Act, making French equal to English throughout the national
government. In 1981, President Ronald Reagan announced he was nominating Arizona Judge Sandra Day Oâ€™Connor to become the first female justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. In 1983, 11-year-old Samantha Smith of Manchester, Maine, left for a visit to the Soviet Union at the personal invitation of Soviet leader Yuri V. Andropov. In 1987, Lt. Col. Oliver North began his long-awaited public testimony at the IranContra hearing, telling Congress that he had â€œnever carried out a single act, not one,â€? without authorization. Ten years ago: Afghanistanâ€™s vice president, Abdul Qadir, was buried with full military honors a day after being assassinated. Texas Gov. Rick Perry saw the devastation days of torrential rain had brought to central and southern Texas. Lleyton Hewitt crushed David Nalbandian in straight sets, 6-1, 6-3, 6-2, in the Wimbledon final to win his second Grand Slam title. Five years ago: A truck bomb devastated the public market in Armili, Iraq, killing at least 115 people. A 24-hour music marathon spanning seven continents reached the Western Hemisphere with rappers, rockers and country stars taking the stage at Live Earth concerts to fight climate change. One year ago: Rupert Murdochâ€™s media empire unexpectedly jettisoned News of the World, Britainâ€™s bestselling Sunday newspaper, after a public backlash over claims it had used phone hacking and other illegal tactics to expose the rich and famous, royals and ordinary citizens.

Diabetes Tip Want to know how a particular meal affects your blood sugar? Check it just before the ďŹ rst bite of that meal and again one and a half to two hours after that. Its OK to go up about 50-60 points. If it goes up more then you may need to make an adjustement in food or medicine. Remember your after meal blood sugar goal should be under 180 according Jimmy Bennett Ji B to the American Diabetes Association. Some doctors even recommend that you be under 140. Controlling your diabetes can help you to reduce the risk of damage to your eyes, kidneys, nerves and most of all your heart.

Ward pleads guilty in McCoy death Associated Press
TUPELO â€” A Saltillo man has pleaded guilty to the 2010 shooting death of Anna Catherine McCoy. Prosecutors said Thomas Ward pleaded guilty Friday in Lee County
Circuit Court to culpable negligence manslaughter. Ward had initially been charged with depraved heart murder. Authorities say McCoy, a 20-year-old soccer player at Itawamba Com-
munity College, was shot to death at Wardâ€™s home on April 15, 2010. Wardâ€™s attorney had claimed the shooting was an accident. Circuit Judge James Roberts has not set a sentencing date for Ward.
Ward was tried in May, but a jury was unable to reach a verdict. Ward faces a minimum of two years and a maximum of 20 years in prison. Ward was returned Friday to the Lee County jail.
Tennessee bans on campfires in parks BY JEFF YORK Special to the Daily Corinthian
The Tennessee State Parks system is issuing a temporary ban on backcountry campfires in all state parks due to dry weather conditions that could increase the potential for wildfire hazards. The backcountry campfire ban is effective immediately and will remain in place until further notice. In coordination with the Department of Agricultureâ€™s Division of Forestry efforts, this burn ban serves as an additional measure to ensure the safety of campers and to protect the parksâ€™ forested areas. Campers will still be able to build campfires and use charcoal to cook their meals, as long as they are inside an appropriate fire ring or designated grill area in designated campground facilities (not in backcountry areas). â€œDry weather conditions continue throughout the state and humidity remains very low,â€? said
Deputy Commissioner Brock Hill. â€œWe want to take every precaution necessary to protect people and land.â€? Tennessee State Parks management team encourages all state park visitors to immediately report a fire or what could be a potential fire danger to 911. If a Tennessee State Parksâ€™ office or ranger station is nearby, also report to these appropriate locations. Tennessee State Parks also offers several fire safety tips for visitors: â– Use designated areas â€” Campfires in Tennessee State Parks must be contained within designated grills or fire grates. No backcountry campfires are allowed at this
time. â– Be responsible â€” Never leave a fire unattended, even for a minute. Donâ€™t allow children and pets near the campfire and never leave them unsupervised. Be aware that smoking poses a fire danger. Do not throw cigarettes on the ground or dispose in a flammable container. â– Play it safe â€” Keep a bucket of water and a shovel nearby. Stack extra wood upwind and away from the fire. After lighting, do not discard the match until it is cold. â– Do it right the first time â€” Learn how to safely start a fire. Never use flammable liquids to ignite or keep your fire burning. This means avoid gasoline, diesel fuel,
lighter fluid and other dangerous fuels. â– Be aware of your surroundings â€” Avoid starting a fire underneath low-hanging branches or shrubbery. Fires can often flame higher than you anticipate. Keep your fire away from anything flammable, such as dry grass, tents, paper plates, napkins and camping gear. â– Watch the weather â€” Be aware that hot embers can re-ignite the fire if strong winds are present. â– No fireworks â€” Fireworks of any kind are prohibited within the Tennessee State Parks system, except public displays approved by Tennessee State Parks officials in partnership with local government. â– Put it out â€” Make sure your campfire is completely extinguished before leaving a campsite or before bedtime. Always have on hand things to put out your fire such as water, a shovel and a fire extinguisher.
sure, being all covered up can keep your body temperature from going down in hot weather. If you do need to cover up, opt for lightweight, loose-fitting clothing in light colors to facilitate sweat evaporation which is necessary to keep you cool. Light colors also help deflect heat instead of absorbing it like dark ones do. â– Avoid going out dur-
ing the hottest times of the day. The sunâ€™s rays are at their hottest and most dangerous between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. It is best to schedule any workout, exercise, or game you want to do in the early morning or late afternoon. If scheduling is not possible such as in the case of pickup games, then at least try to play in-
doors. Wearing sunscreen is also an added protection. â– Have a backup plan. If the heat is really bad but you still want to exercise, it pays to have a backup workout plan. Walking around the mall, climbing stairs, and working in the gym are some of the best alternatives to outdoor exercise during a heat wave.
arrested Sunday and charged with felony possession of a controlled substance. The arrest happened after Hill, a truck driver, received directions from a city police officer who became suspicious that Hill was intoxicated. The officer followed the truck to
the weigh station where a search in conjunction with the Mississippi Department of Transporta-
tion uncovered 119 Lortab pills. Hill was released on $1,000 bond.

The Mississippi Artist Roster program is a listing of professional Mississippi artists who have been reviewed and approved by a panel of experts and are available to do performances, workshops, and other presentations in a wide range of settings around the state. Schools, community arts groups, libraries and other organizations use
the roster to identify potential artists who can present at their venues. Across the state, the arts commission awarded $1.5 million in grants to artists and arts programs. â€œEven though federal and state governments faced budget cuts and the global recession continues to strain private support, we are thankful we can keep our level of support steady,â€? said MAC Executive Director Malcolm White.

BY JEFF YORK Special to the Daily Corinthian
Country music artist Darryl Worley is continuing his efforts as an ambassador for the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency and other state organizations across the country who manage the nation’s natural resources and their efforts to aid those affected by recent natural disasters. What began as a simple idea to use the song to promote fishing grew to include a music video and a national fundraising effort. The campaign, spearheaded by TWRA and Outdoor Music, was built around the song
known as “The Fishin’ Hole,” which was the theme song for the old Andy Griffith Show. It features Worley and long-time songwriting buddy Wynn Varble enjoying a day on the lake with a surprise ending featuring some wellknown pro fishermen, Elite Pro anglers Terry Scroggins, Gerald Swindle, Kota Kiriyama, and Brent Chapman. “Everyone knows that melody, and it will stick in your head for days if you’re not careful,” said Worley at the time the project was launched. “Even though I’m a huge ‘Andy Griffith Show’ fan,
I did not know the song had lyrics. They are clever and give the song brand new life.” The music video, which was filmed near Worley’s home in Savannah, was released late last fall during the Southeastern Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies conference. During concert appearances, Worley has performed the song and invited his audience to pull out their cell phones and text the word FISH to 50555. This allows a $10 donation to be added to the user’s phone bill. These funds are received by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Foun-
dation. As a thank you gift, a link to a free ringtone of the song is sent to the donor’s phone. The net proceeds are then used to help restore levees, replace equipment lost or damaged in the disasters and re-stock fish in waters affected by tornadoes and flooding. Donations from other parts of the country are distributed back to the state of origin’s wildlife agency. “The Fishin’ Hole” music video was produced and directed by Jon Ward and Richard Prather.”The Fishin’ Hole” song is available on iTunes and at OutdoorMusic.com.
Electric car firm says it’s starting production BY JEFF AMY Associated Press
JACKSON — An electric car maker plans another coming-out party in north Mississippi. GreenTech Automotive was set to unveil its MyCar electric vehicle line in Horn Lake, just south of Memphis, Tenn. Some auto industry analysts have questioned whether the company will succeed. MyCar is a two-seat neighborhood electric vehicle, a cross between a golf cart and conventional car, with a 115-mile range. The company has said it plans to sell a “sizeable percentage” of products to Denmark over several years. In the United States, such vehicles are allowed only on streets with speed limits of 35 mph and below. The vehicles are supposed to recharge from household electric outlets and sell for about $10,000. Former Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe is chairman of GreenTech, based in McLean, Va. The CEO is Chinese businessman Charles X. Wang. GreenTech announced in 2009 it would build a massive factory in Tunica County, Miss., unveiling four models of full-sized electric cars at a Tunica casino. Those plans changed, though, after McAuliffe got involved and GreenTech acquired MyCar. GreenTech had said it would start production
in late 2011, but missed that deadline. The company said it still plans to build a 200,000- to 300,000-square-foot factory in Tunica County. It also says it plans to progress from neighborhood electric vehicles to fullsized cars. But for now, it’s leasing a former elevator factory in the Memphis suburbs of DeSoto County, Miss. Sally Williams, spokeswoman for the Mississippi Development Authority, said that the state hasn’t provided any assistance to the Horn Lake operation. She said Mississippi is “committed” to providing infrastructure aid, tax breaks and a loan to Tunica County to buy land there. However, Williams said she had no estimate of the value of that projected assistance and said details haven’t been finalized because GreenTech “is still assessing its needs related to its Tunica County plant.” GreenTech had said Thursday that Mississippi
Gov. Phil Bryant would attend Friday’s event, but withdrew that statement after the governor’s office told The Associated Press that Bryant wasn’t going. The company has not responded to questions submitted June 26 by the AP, and a number of factors remain unclear. Originally, GreenTech said it would raise money from foreign investors through the EB-5 visa program, which allows investors to obtain residency in the United States in exchange for putting a certain amount of money into a business venture and creating a certain number of jobs. It’s not clear whether GreenTech is still seeking foreign investors, or how much money it has put into the Horn Lake operation so far. On Thursday, an Escondido, Calif., firm called Flux Power

said it would be providing lithium battery packs for GreenTech and had already delivered “several hundred.” Flux Power is led by Chris Anthony, who co-founded failed electric vehicle company Aptera and then left to start Epic Electric Vehicles, which is developing a threewheeled electric roadster, an electric dune buggy and an electric boat. The GreenTech project has encountered intense skepticism from some auto industry analysts, who say it’s unlikely that an untried player without very deep pockets will be able to break into the fledgling electric vehicle market. GreenTech first came to public notice when Wang was engaged in a legal dispute with Yung “Benjamin” Yeung, a business associate.
