Officials eye possible disaster declaration BY JEBB JOHNSTON email@example.com
Alcorn County is almost within reach of seeking a federal disaster declaration following the severe storms of the night of July 30, according to emergency management officials. Ricky Gibens, emergency management director, said reports are needed from any home or business owners who have not already reported storm-related damage from the storms that happened around
11 p.m. and 2 a.m. on the night of July 30 and early morning of July 31. “It looks like we had about eight or 10 homes that we classed as destroyed,” said Gibens. Ten to 12 had severe damage. Another 20 had moderate damage with a total of about 50 homes affected. No reports of business damage have been received. Representatives of the American Red Cross and EMA have done field surveys.
The numbers are not currently enough to seek a declaration, but officials believe there could be some unreported damage that would put the county within range. Anything related to the storm and the numerous downed trees and limbs can be reported. Shingles blown off, broken glass, chipped bricks and any other damage to a home would qualify. In one case following the storm, some workers cutting a tree limb caught the cor-
ner of a house with a trailer, resulting in damage. That type of situation also qualifies. The threshold is generally about 100 homes or $300,000 in total damage to qualify for a major disaster declaration. The threshold is lower for a declaration through the Small Business Administration. A federal disaster declaration could help the county and city recoup cleanup expenses. “We potentially could receive some help in the clearing
away of [debris] that people put out on the street,” said David Huwe, director of community development and planning for the city. Right now, the affected departments hope not to bust their budgets, he said. The city received 24 reports of downed trees in the night’s storms as the east side of the county took the hardest hit. Citizens can contact Gibens at 286-7737; leave a message if no answer for a return call.
Quick thinking Biggersville fireman honored in ceremony BY BOBBY J. SMITH firstname.lastname@example.org
A Biggersville fireman was recently honored for singlehandedly extinguishing a fire in a local business. Biggersville Fire & Rescue Capt. William Hutcheson was among several firefighters honored in a recent ceremony at the fire department’s North Station. Hutcheson received Biggersville Fire & Rescue’s Meritorious Conduct Award for actions during a call on Nov. 18, 2010. Hutcheson was shopping in a Biggersville convenience store when a grease fire ignited in the kitchen area. According to the official report on the in-
cident, “Capt. Hutcheson was quick to act by retrieving the only fire extinguisher in the store only to discover that it was not charged. Thinking quickly, Capt. Hutcheson went to the retail section of the store and retrieved multiple boxes of baking soda which he used to smother the fire.” Due to his quick actions and ability to act according to his training, Hutcheson was able to prevent heavy loss to the business and possible injury of its occupants. “We are very proud of our volunteers for what they do and Please see CEREMONY | 2A
Church uses baseball to share Jesus in Ukraine BY STEVE BEAVERS email@example.com

8-year-old Lauren Talley along with the rest of Alcorn County students headed back to school for a new year Tuesday. Talley, the daughter of Todd and Lori Talley, is a third-grader at Kossuth Elementary.
Baseball was the tool which planted the seed. Seven members of Holly Baptist Church used “America's Pastime” to spread the Gospel in Feodosia, Ukraine, during a mission trip on June 29 through July 8. During four days, the local men worked with about 50 children from the city on the basics of the game. “The first day was an adventure on what to do,” said church member and Kossuth baseball head coach Daniel Threadgill. “Teaching the ba-
sic things like putting a glove on right and how to hold a bat were new to me.” The idea for taking the game to Feodosia — a port and resort city of about 40,000 on the Black Sea — was one of former Corinthian Gary Watkins. Watkins, whose International Equipping Ministries is located in Collierville, Tenn., spoke at the church about the possible mission trip. “I didn't know how it was going to work, but we were going,” said Holly pastor Bro. John Boler. “Baseball was goPlease see BASEBALL | 2A
Photographer Lowry Wilson looks for unique perspectives in work BY JEBB JOHNSTON firstname.lastname@example.org
In a bullet-smashed windshield on an abandoned vehicle, a lonely Confederate cemetery or a Ferris wheel shrouded in a dusky haze, Lowry Wilson seeks the essence of the South. The New Albany photographer’s work is the featured exhibit for August at the Corinth Artist Guild Gallery. An opening reception for the “Old South Images” exhibit is set for Thursday from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. “Everything I do, I try to find unique perspectives of,” said Wilson, who was also featured at the gallery in 2009. “I try to look for things that are different; things that capture the eye.” Wilson ran a photo studio for about 10 years, shooting weddings and portraits. “For the last several years, I have been teaching studio lighting and wedding consultations for one of the largest photo labs in the world, along with leading several tours along Route 66 in Missouri, Kansas and Oklahoma.” A series of images from the
Mississippi Delta hangs on the gallery’s front wall. He plans to expand the series into a future gallery exhibit and book. He is also working on a series made with film-based toy cameras for a future exhibit. In addition to Mississippi landscapes populated with barns and aging vehicles, a sampling of other photos in the exhibit includes the Memphis & Arkansas Bridge against a pastel-hued sky, a colorful flag painted on the wall of Corinth’s old Railway Express Agency building, and a sea of old bathtubs and sinks captured in black and white. Non-color photos make up almost half of the exhibit. “I think the black-and-white photos are quite interesting with their shape and composition,” said Guild President Sonny Boatman. “Bullet,” which shows an old vehicle’s interior with a bulletcracked windshield, was captured on the camera of a cell phone.

the passion they have for helping people in our community,” said Deputy Chief Jonathan Rider. “Tonight’s awards are just a small way we can recognize them and say how proud we are of them taking time out of their personal lives to receive this training.” Biggersville Fire & Rescue Chief Patrick Claunch said there is no doubt in his mind that Hutcheson’s actions saved the business from significant damage. “He showed initiative and prevented something catastrophic,” said Claunch. “My hat’s off to him.” Hutcheson is a Biggersville resident. He works at the Alcorn County E-911 Center and volunteers for
the Biggersville and Southwest fire departments. Hutcheson also goes on medical calls for the Kossuth Fire Department and is part of the Mississippi Search & Rescue Association. He regularly attends classes to increase his training. “He’ll take time out of his personal schedule to go to classes,” said Claunch. “That’s something I really appreciate. He’ll take the time to get training we all need.” Biggersville Fire & Rescue is a 100 percent volunteer department and answers over 300 calls for service each year with two stations in the central portion of Alcorn County.

ing to be our bridge to share the gospel.” Missionaries Igor and Irena Novikov served as translators and guides during the trip. “Igor and Irena are the real deal,” said Boler. “I would go back tomorrow if God opens that door.” It became more about witnessing than teaching the game of baseball for Threadgill. “I never thought I would go on a mission trip to do baseball,” said the KHS coach. “The trip really humbled me to see the same Christ who died
for me died for them too … they might wear different clothes and come from a different culture than us, but we all have a soul.” Both Boler and Threadgill said the children who attended the camp were enthusiastic each day to learn the game. “Keeping their attention wasn't a problem at all,” said the coach. “Whatever we did -- no matter how small -- was fun for them … they thought we were professional baseball players.” “Not only did the kids want to know how to play, but the authorities
and director of the park would come out to see what we were doing,” added Boler. Those crowds gave Boler and the Holly team a chance to talk about Jesus. “We wanted to go and be a blessing to them, but any time you go on a mission trip you are the one who receives the blessing,” said Boler. Most of the villages in the port city are low income. “It was a culture shock for us,” said the pastor. “But it was also good for us to see how some people live in the world.”
Boler hoped a simple question would give them the opportunity to talk of the answer they needed to hear. “I wanted them to ask why did you bring baseball here?” he said. “If they did that, we could plant that seed about Jesus.” Threadgill returned home a changed person following the mission adventure. “I came back different,” he said. “My wife says I just light up when I tell others about the trip … it's not about me, it's that Christ died for all of us.”
In other gallery happenings, Boatman wants the public to know that the gallery is not planning to close. The owner of the building has put
it up for sale, and a “for sale” sign posted in the window has prompted questions about the gallery’s future. Boatman hopes any new owner would allow the gallery to continue as a tenant.

McNairy County adds circuit clerk to November ballot BY JEFF YORK For the Daily Corinthian
An addition to the ballot in November will result in the election of a new McNairy County Circuit Court Clerk. This will fill an upcoming vacancy when Ronnie Brooks resigns to take over as county mayor. McNairy County Mayor Wilburn Ashe learned while researching how the vacancy could be filled that the office could be placed on the ballot in November. The person elected will serve the remaining two years of Brooks’ term as circuit court clerk. “We thought the county commissioners would have to choose a replacement, but the state law says it can be placed on

“It will take some pressure off the county commissioners to let the people elect Ronnie’s replacement.” Ashe said he had notified both county parties they could have a meeting and nominate a candidate for the office. An independent candidate can qualify be getting the signatures of 25 registered voters on a petition. Brooks was elected last week as county mayor. He will have to resign as circuit court clerk before being sworn-in as county mayor on Sept. 1. Ashe was twice elected to fill a vacancy as county mayor, once in 2005 and another in 2011. The difference was the two vacancies were filled during an off-year for elections.
St. James Music Press publishes work of North Alabama student For Community Profiles
FLORENCE, Ala. — Drew Mills, a senior at the University of North Alabama, now owns the copyright to “All Blessings Flow,” his own arrangement of the familiar hymn tune “Old Hundredth,” commonly used as the Doxology in many churches. The arrangement was published by the prestigious St. James Music Press and recorded by Chanticleer, a Grammy Award-winning vocal male ensemble. Mills’ piece was a weeklong project that was originally submitted as an assignment for his Choral Techniques class, he said. Upon the encouragement of his instructor, Dr. Ian Loeppky, Mills submitted the

the ballot if the office is open 60 days prior to an election,” said Ashe. “A couple commissioners had expressed interest in the position and I was concerned about how many votes would be needed because they could not vote.” Brooks is expected to resign his office as circuit court clerk by Aug. 31 and that would allow time to place his position on the Nov. 6 ballot. The deputy clerk in the office would run the circuit court clerk’s office until the replacement is elected in November. “The county commission could select an interim to fill Brooks’ office, but I do not think that will happen before the election,” said Ashe.
piece to the editor of St. James Music Press, who liked what he heard. “It was interesting to be a part of the collaboration process that happens between editor and composer,” Mills said. After it was accepted for publication, the final piece was emailed to Mills recorded by members of Chanticleer. “That someone of that musical caliber would be singing my piece was a really humbling idea,” Mills said. Chanticleer is the only full-time professional chorus in America and the first vocal ensemble to be inducted into the American Classical Music Hall of Fame. St. James Music Press is an online publisher
that operates on a subscription basis. Subscribers pay a once-annual fee and have access to any digital downloads on the site. “To get this kind of exposure for Drew as a young composer is really impressive,” Loeppky said. “I’m thrilled that his audience will be more than just me.” “All Blessings Flow” is available for download for all St. James Music Press subscribers. Mills’ arrangement will also be performed by the UNA Chamber Choir as part of the Fall Choral Showcase and on their Ireland Tour next spring.

Hall isn’t afraid of raising taxes STARKVILLE — While most members of his party run like scalded dogs from the mere mention of anything resembling a tax hike (try getting out of a GOP primary as an advocate for higher taxes!), Republican Central District Transportation Commissioner Dick Hall is loudly calling for an increase in the state’s gasoline tax. Has Hall taken leave of his partisan political senses? No, he’s simply continuing to beat the drum for a legitimate state gas tax problem that he’s been calling attention to for well over a decade. That Hall has the courage to go against the political grain on this question is admirable. One of the biggest public policy and economic misconceptions in Mississippi is the notion that as gas prices have risen, state gas tax revenues have risen with them. That’s not the case. Why? Mississippi’s 18.4 cents per gallon gas tax (CPG) is a flat tax. When we pay $2 a gallon for gas at the pump, the tax is 18.4 CPG. When we pay $4 per gallon at the pump, the state tax is still 18.4 CPG. The only way the
state takes in more revenue in gas taxes is for the volume of gas consumed to inSid Salter crease. The state’s Columnist 18.4 CPG gas tax was last raised in 1987. According to a report by the American Society of Civil Engineers, the state’s flat gas tax isn’t keeping pace with the inflation of rising highway construction and maintenance costs and with the modern fuel economy improvements in today’s vehicles. Hall says the ASCE report makes clear that Mississippi has an estimated $30 billion in highway and bridge needs between 2008 and 2035. But even in a “bestcase scenario,” the state’s current gas tax structure would only generate $15.3 billion to meet those expenses. Compounding that discrepancy is the fact that modern vehicles get better mileage. The ASCE report shows that total vehicle miles traveled in Mississippi increased more than 5 billion miles (14.2 percent)
from 2004 to 2008, gas tax revenues in 2008 were just .3 percent higher than that of 2004 because of improved fuel efficiencies. Can Hall make the case to fellow Republicans in the Legislature for a gas tax hike to fund roads and bridge construction and maintenance in Mississippi? Perhaps. But it will be a tough sell. Still, the numbers suggest that even some of the GOP’s most fiscally conservative legislators can see that Hall’s alarm is more than justified. The U.S. Energy Information Administration reported that the national average tax on gasoline is 41.66 CPG as of July 12. The federal tax on gasoline is 18.4 CPG. The national average state gasoline excise tax is 23.26 CPG. EIA reported that the national average tax on diesel fuel is 48.18 CPG as of July 12. The federal tax on diesel is 24.40 CPG and the national average state tax on diesel is 23.78 CPG. In Mississippi, drivers pay total federal and state taxes of 37.2 cents per gallon of gasoline and 43.2 cents per gallon of diesel. Mississippi’s excise tax totals 18.4 CPG on gasoline
and diesel, with 0.4 cents going to an environmental protection fee. In coastal Hancock, Harrison and Jackson counties, there is an additional 3 CPG seawall tax. That ranks Mississippi as having the 37th lowest gasoline motor fuel taxes in the U.S. and the 38th lowest diesel motor fuel taxes in the nation. Those rankings are misleading because of some ties among states with higher tax rates. More to the point, only six U.S. states charge higher total gas taxes than does Mississippi and only seven states charge higher diesel fuel taxes. Mississippi’s gas tax is lower than Alabama (19.25 cents per gallon), Arkansas (21.80 CPG), Louisiana (20 CPG), or Tennessee (21.40 CPG). It would seem then that the pertinent question would be whether Mississippi roads and bridges are in better shape that the transportation infrastructure in those surrounding states?

The musical story of Gina Forsyth NEW ORLEANS — Gina Forsyth is a tall, striking woman with Rita Coolidge hair and regal bearing. She strums and sings for a crowd of six the same as if it were 6,000. We are sitting in a little hamburger joint and bar on the shady street called Esplanade, having arrived early by New Orleans standards. Gina speaks to everyone in the place, which doesn’t take long. She’s friendly that way. I thought I knew a little something about Gina Forsyth, having heard her country fiddle at least half a dozen times at the annual Hank Williams tribute show in little Eunice, La. While I had a second home in Louisiana, in Henderson, I never missed the Hank show. Most years the backup band, besides Gina, included Don Helms, Hank’s old steel player, and the best accordionist I ever heard, Reggie Mott. Who in their right mind would miss all

that? I knew Gina lived in New Orleans and was a classically vioRheta trained linist. I knew Johnson she someColumnist times toured with a Cajun band. I even knew that she could sing. At one Hank show, she put down the fiddle and did an amazing duet in her distinctive deep alto. But I had no idea how versatile she was, or that her song-writing might rank even above her fiddling and singing. In the little club with the invisible crowd, I am about to find out. She’s pushing her first album in a decade, something with an ironic title and cover called “Promised Land.” In the CD photo, Gina sits with her guitar in front of a slice of vanishing Americana, a big white barn, presumably on a family farm.

pretty much deliver on the promise of the photo. “Christmas in China,” for example, is a love story and political commentary all tied up together with biting wit: “Our Christmas was made in China, humanrights issues and all. From my brand-new socks to my old gym shoes, to the decorations on my wall. ... They don’t have Christmas in China, not like in the U.S.A. There they work for chicken feed, making things we think we need.” In a song called “4th of July,” she compares her relationship with this country to a troubled romantic one and wonders aloud if anyone else feels this way. “Will everything be all right in the morning?” she asks. She gets even more specific in “Sweet and Sunny South.” That’s a constantly evolving song, and tonight she works in quips about the recent Chick-fil-A controversy. “In the sweet and sunny South where I was born,

moss on the magnolia, it’s grits and not granola, where we know it from Shinola, in the sweet and sunny South where I was born. ... Where we love our musicians and our fascist politicians .... I love it and I hate it, every now and then berate it .... Where Washington and Lee can’t get married legally....” She can say those kinds of things because she was born in Florida, grew up Baptist in Alabama, moved to New Orleans in 1983 to study at Loyola. Not only is she blessed with the brains to examine and question things, she knows how to put it all to music. If you’ve ever wondered what happened to the gutsy folk singers who used to roam the earth with their instrument and protest, check out Gina Forsyth. In the tradition of Guthrie, Dylan and Prine she is writing and singing, not just fiddling while America burns. (Rheta Grimsley Johnson is syndicated columnist for the Daily Corinthian.)

Soybean-sucking bugs reach Mississippi BY JANET MCCONNAUGHEY Associated Press
NEW ORLEANS — Kudzu bugs, pea-sized Asian insects with hearty appetites for soybeans as well as the weed they’re named after, have hitchhiked from Alabama to western Mississippi. Farmers and entomologists in Arkansas and Louisiana are keeping a wary eye out for an invasion. The bugs were found near Vicksburg, Miss., in July. “That’s too close for comfort for us in Arkansas and the rest of the Mississippi Delta,” Arkansas Extension Service entomologist Gus Lorenz said when he learned of
the Mississippi sighting. The LSU AgCenter also put out an alert asking farmers to keep an eye out for the bugs. Vicksburg is about 270 miles west of the nearest Alabama county where they’d been seen. Since first being spotted near Atlanta in 2009, kudzu bugs have spread to the Carolinas, southern Virginia, northern Florida, Alabama and east Tennessee. They are strong flyers, but also are known to hitchhike on trucks and other vehicles. Such a big jump out of Alabama would be surprising if the bugs were only flying from place to place, said Wayne Gardner, an entomologist at the University of Geor-
gia’s campus in Griffin. “We knew these insects were very strong flyers, but we also knew they’re exceptionally good hitchhikers,” he said. Kudzu bugs range from green to a brown so dark it’s almost black. They look a bit like ticks and a bit like dark ladybugs with squareish backsides. “If it was on you and sitting still, you might say, ‘Gosh is that a tick?’ If they were moving you might say, ‘What kind of lady beetle is that?”’ Gardner said. Like stinkbugs, to which they’re related, and like imported ladybugs, they emit a protective stink. Gardner said it’s a fruitier smell than stinkbugs’ stench, and has been mistaken at least once, by a
woman who called 911, for a gas leak. “There was no gas. But there were kudzu bugs all over her screens and door and windows and porch,” he said. That’s another way they’re like imported ladybugs — they’ll go into buildings for warmth. They especially seem to like white and pale colors. Gardner said he’s found them on his white car after checking beans or kudzu for the bugs, which are known to scientists as Megacopta cribaria. That’s why they were first noticed in Vicksburg, said Angus Catchot Jr., an associate extension professor in entomology and plant pathology at Mississippi State University. A woman saw them on a

Caller seeking ride for beer arrested Associated Press
COLUMBIA, Tenn. — When you’re out of beer and need a ride to get some, who you gonna’ call? Not 911. The Columbia Daily Herald reported city police arrested a 67-year-old man after he allegedly called emergency dispatchers at least nine times Satur-

day. Most of the calls were hang-ups, but a dispatcher said at least once, the caller asked if someone could send him a ride so he could buy beer. Police Officer Seneca Shield said he told Allen Troy Brooks that if he cooperated, he would just receive a citation. But authorities said Brooks
denied making calls and claimed he didn’t have a telephone. Brooks was arrested and charged with making 911 calls in a nonemergency situation. He was released on bond. A phone number listed for Brooks was out of service on Monday and no attorney was listed in court records.
follow. That’s when those in the court will hear from Loughner at length for the first time, as the judge questions him about the agreement and changing his plea to guilty.
Giffords satisfied with Loughner plea TUCSON, Ariz. — Former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is satisfied with Tuesday’s expected plea agreement from the man accused of shooting her and many others in a deadly rampage at one of her political events, and she hopes it will allow victims of the mass shooting to move on with their lives. Jared Lee Loughner is expected to plead guilty in federal court in Tucson, Ariz., as part of an agreement that will allow him to avoid the death penalty in the shooting that left six people dead, including a federal judge, and wounded Giffords and 12 others. “The pain and loss caused by the events of Jan. 8, 2011, are incalculable,” Giffords said in a joint statement with her husband, Mark Kelly. “Avoiding a trial will allow us — and we hope the whole Southern Arizona community — to continue with our recovery.” Later Tuesday, the legal team defending Loughner will have to convince a judge that he is competent enough to enter a plea. The 23-year-old college dropout is scheduled to attend a hearing during which his attorneys and prosecutors will try to persuade U.S. District Court Judge Larry A. Burns that Loughner is no longer mentally unfit for trial. Experts had concluded that Loughner suffers from schizophrenia, and officials at a federal prison have forcibly medicated him with psychotropic drugs for more than a year. A courtappointed psychiatrist is expected to testify Tuesday that he is competent to enter a plea. If Burns agrees, as legal experts expect, a formal change-of-plea hearing will
Romney’s ‘green jobs’ criticism carries risks DENVER — Some Republicans are worried that Mitt Romney is going too far in savaging President Barack Obama’s green jobs initiative. At issue is a comment by a Romney campaign spokesman that Congress should let a tax break for wind energy producers expire at the end of the year. One Iowa congressman suggested Romney lacked a “full understanding” of how important the credit is to Iowa and the nation. And the Obama campaign circulated fact sheets showing deep support for the credit in swing-voting states including Iowa, Colorado and Nevada. Obama will appear in Colorado on Wednesday to promote his economic plan, and it’s possible that the wind tax credit could come up.
‘Is she not dead?’ man asks in Akron shooting AKRON, Ohio — A man suspected of calmly walking into a hospital’s intensive care unit and shooting his wife in the head in what may have been a mercy killing appeared perplexed at the attempted murder charge against him when he stood before a judge Tuesday, asking whether his wife was indeed dead. Hours later, a medical examiner issued a report ruling the woman’s death from the gunshot wound a homicide, clearing the way for prosecutors to consider more serious charges. John Wise, 66, with a white beard down to his
chest, appeared before an Akron Municipal Court judge via video from jail on an aggravated attempted murder charge. His bond was set at $1 million. The judge delayed his formal arraignment until Wednesday to give Wise time to get an attorney. Wise, who lived with his wife in Massillon, is charged with shooting his wife of 45 years at her bedside in the ICU unit of Akron General Medical Center on Saturday. She died the next morning. Wise was apparently confused about the attempted murder charge Tuesday, asking, “Is she not dead?” Visiting Judge Marvin Shapiro didn’t answer his question but said he would soon have an attorney who could. “We’re going to get you an attorney who will be able to answer all of your questions for you, sir,” Shapiro told him. Wise surrendered to hospital security after the shooting and has cooperated with investigators. Police said Barbara Wise had been in critical condition in the ICU for several days, but details of her illness haven’t been made public.
19 killed at Nigeria church Bible study ABUJA, Nigeria — Three men entered a central Nigerian church just before Bible study began, but instead of joining the worship service they opened fire, killing at least 19 people in an attack that shows that violence is spreading in the divided nation.

Muni bonds spring back Municipal bond investors ors have h h d a good had d run for f the past year, but now they need to consider what may lie ahead. Potentially insurmountable fiscal troubles remain, as three California cities filed for bankruptcy protection this summer. Yet, so far, investors arenâ€™t running scared. Mutual funds that invest in bonds issued by state and local governments continue to attract cash. And from May 2011 through this June, they added a net $40 billion to their coffers. Thatâ€™s nearly as much as the $43 billion withdrawn as fear of muni defaults peaked during a six-month period ending in April 2011. So many investors wanted out that muni bond funds lost an average 4.6 percent in the first three months of 2011, their worst quarter since the early â€™90s. Investors who stayed the course made a profitable decision. Funds investing in long-term
munii bonds b d issued i d around the nation have posted an average return of 10.5 percent over the last year. â€œMunis have absolutely bounced back,â€? says Jeff Tjornehoj, a bond fund analyst with Lipper. The interest payments on muni bonds are exempt from federal income taxes. If you buy a fund that holds bonds issued by governments in your state, you donâ€™t pay state income taxes. Still, a key risk for investors is the fiscal cliff, a combination of tax increases and spending cuts to take effect in January if Congress canâ€™t reach a budget agreement by the end of the year. Among the taxes scheduled to go up is the tax rate on dividends. That could make munis more desirable. But federal cuts to state aid could increase the risk of municipal defaults, says Warren Pierson, co-manager of the Baird Intermediate Municipal Bond fund.
Long-term performers: Each of the funds below has a 10-year record placing it in the top 20 percent of its peers, and a gold medal analyst rating from Morningstar for its future performance prospects. Fund

Express Scriptsâ€™ 2Q
Higher costs and weakness in Europe are expected to offset better revenue in Ralph Laurenâ€™s latest quarterly results. The maker of clothing and home products reports earnings for the April-to-June period today. The company is expected to show improved revenue, but lower net income compared to the same period last year. Clothing makers are facing high costs for labor and transportation, though some commodity costs, such as cotton, have moderated.
What kind of impact has the acquisition of rival Medco Health Solutions had on Express Scriptsâ€™ bottom line? Investors get to find out today, when Express Scripts reports quarterly results that, for the first time, will count Medcoâ€™s contributions. Express Scriptsâ€™ $29.1 billion acquisition of Medco closed in early April. The deal made Express Scripts the largest pharmacy benefits manager by far.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos are treating their visit to Chicago on Thursday night just like any other preseason opener. Only, it isn’t. This marks the four-time MVP’s first game of any sort since Jan. 30, 2011, when he went 2-for-5 for 12 yards and an interception in the AFC’s 55-41 loss to the NFC in the Pro Bowl. “I think he’s anxious to get in there, just like all of our starters,” coach John Fox said Tuesday. Anybody who wants to see Manning’s first game in 18 months had better tune in
early because he won’t have much more than a cameo appearance at Soldier Field. “Well, we don’t get into how much we’re going to do but we’ll approach it much like any first preseason games,” Fox said. “Our first unit will go the first quarter — about — and the seconds will go the second and third quarters, and the third will finish out the fourth quarter.” That’s fine with Manning. “We’d like to get a drive or two going,” Manning said. “I’ve always said you love to get a bit of everything in the preseason if you can. You love to get some short-yardage work, some third-down conversions, you’d love to get
some red zone, goal line. In all four games, if you can get all the situations that we work on out here, that would be ideal. “So, however long we play, or whatever Coach Fox wants to do, we’re good with. We just need to play well when we’re out there.” Manning missed all of last season with a nerve injury in his neck that weakened his throwing arm and led to his tearful release from the Indianapolis Colts that set off the biggest free agent frenzy in NFL history. He landed in Denver and hasn’t looked back. Throughout offseason workouts, minicamp and training camp with the Bron-
cos (No. 10 in the AP Pro32), Manning has had plenty of zip on his passes and he’s been as accurate and cerebral as ever. Even Tuesday, when he had his share of incompletions against an ever-improving, first-string defense, Manning was sharp in his decisions. “I wouldn’t say that,” Manning retorted when asked if it was a frustrating day at practice. “Every day, you’re trying to get better. Certainly, there’s always some things you can improve on.” Although his fused neck is actually stronger than it was pre-surgery, the next big mile marker in Manning’s comePlease see MANNING | 9A

Raisman wins 2 more gymnastics medals Associated Press
LONDON — Five things to know about Tuesday, Day 11 of the London Olympics: ■ Floored: Aly Raisman finishes Olympics in style with floor gold. ■ All-American final set for women’s beach volleyball. ■ Bolt breezes into 200-meter semifinals; Pearson wins women’s hurdles. ■ It’s over: U.S. men shut out in boxing tournament. ■ On top: Hoy sets British record with 6th Olympic gold. ■■■
Aly Raisman’s reaction was right on. She put together a crisp floor routine Tuesday, then mouthed, “Wow” after she saluted the judges. Wow, indeed. Raisman became the first U.S. woman to win Olympic gold on floor, and she picked
up a bronze on balance beam on the final day of the gymnastics competition at the London Olympics. “It definitely went better than I thought it would,” Raisman said. Raisman just missed a medal in the all-around, finishing with the same score as Russia’s Aliya Mustafina but dropping to fourth on a tiebreak. She was on the right end of the rules for beam Tuesday, bumping Romania’s Catalina Ponor off the podium. The U.S. captain initially finished fourth, with a score of 14.966. But she questioned it, and judges added an extra tenth to her routine’s difficulty after a review. That gave her and Ponor identical scores of 15.066, but Raisman got the bronze
because her execution score was higher. “A gold medal is a gold medal, but I definitely felt like (beam) was redemption from the other night in the all-around,” Raisman said. “I was in the same exact position, but it went in my favor this time.” China collected two more golds when Feng Zhe won the parallel bars and Deng Linlin the beam competition. Epke Zonderland won the high bar, the first medal for a Dutch man and only the second Olympic medal overall for the Netherlands in the sport. It will be an All-American party at beach volleyball when Kerri Walsh Jennings and Misty May-Treanor take on April Ross and Jennifer Kessy in Wednesday night’s final.
Walsh Jennings and MayTreanor won gold medals in Athens in 2004 and Beijing in 2008 without losing a match, and they ran their unbeaten streak to 20 with their victory over China in the semifinals. Ross and Kessy advanced with a three-set win against top-ranked Brazilians Juliana and Larissa. “We want to seal the deal that we’re the best team that’s ever happened,” Walsh Jennings said. “Misty has changed my life. I just love her. I want to win tomorrow for us.” Usain Bolt is eyeing another gold after he cruised through 200-meter qualifying, jogging down the stretch on his way to a stress-free first-round heat of 20.39 secPlease see OLYMPICS | 9A

Day after brawl, Rex Ryan punishes team Associated Press
CORTLAND, N.Y. — Rex Ryan ordered his players to cut out all the nonsense. When the New York Jets ignored their coach, it was time to run. And run some more. A day after a 20-player throwdown highlighted a chippy practice, Ryan made his players run a series of sprints Tuesday as punishment for a few minor scuffles on the field. “I think sometimes, you’re trying to be physical but being physical is one thing,” Ryan said. “Going past that is something else, and that’s what I didn’t like. That’s why
we stopped and had to remind the guys that the enemy is not in green and white.” With most of the media off to the side speaking with owner Woody Johnson, linebacker Demario Davis and running back Terrance Ganaway — both rookies — got into it after Ganaway was a little too physical on a play. Ryan immediately called everyone over to tell them to be physical, but smart and not selfish. There was another skirmish a few minutes later involving cornerback Antonio Cromartie and rookie wide receiver Stephen Hill, with Cromartie threatening to
punch him. Moments later, Cromartie and tight end Dustin Keller got into it. “Apparently, someone didn’t get the message,” Ryan said, referring to Cromartie. He added that he thought Cromartie, who refused to speak to reporters after practice, should have backed off and not hit Keller as hard as he did. Ryan immediately shouted at his players and had them all line up on the sideline. “It’s just part of training camp,” safety Eric Smith said. “We’re out there banging around, it gets hot and people get frustrated. Tempers esca-
late.” Every player on the Jets (No. 17 in the AP Pro32), from the quarterbacks to the kickers, was then ordered to run about 10 gassers — sprints from sideline to sideline — for at least 10 minutes. It was the first time, Ryan confirmed, that he has punished his players in that way as coach of the Jets. “I guess the big thing is, I just felt it needed to be done,” Ryan said. “There’s no question I thought it needed to be done. And the point I want them to understand is I’m sePlease see RYAN | 9A

back is bouncing back from that first big hit. Manning said he has no doubt he is ready to absorb it, although the Broncos aren’t exactly eager to get that blast behind them. “Well, you never want to see your guy the one being hit regardless of position,” Fox said. “But it’s all part of the game. I think he’s definitely preparing himself, and we’ll see how it goes Thursday night.” Manning has spent the last five months learning his new teammates and working on timing with his new targets, but he is eager to see who steps up in the preseason. “The lights have not been on yet,” Manning said. “We’ve had practices, we had the scrimmage Saturday, which was a game-like atmosphere, but going against a different opponent on Thursday” will provide a better gauge. “So it’s serious business out there on Thursday. There’s jobs being competed for, there’s jobs that people are trying to keep. That’s where all of us have something to play for,” he added. “Sure, you want to win the game, but everybody’s competing, trying to do their jobs well.” Notes: DT Ty Warren didn’t finish practice because of a stomach problem. ... Several of DT Ben Garland’s defensive teammates gave him two replacement silver sabers he received upon graduating from the Air Force Academy, along with a Falcons football helmet. The originals were lost in the wildfire that destroyed his grandparents’ home in Colorado Springs this summer. ... RB Knowshon Moreno made a big blunder when he ran out of bounds during a two-minute drill in which Denver’s offense was trying to protect a late lead. “That’s why you practice it,” Fox said. “I’d rather that happen now in a practice situation vs. in a game when it counts.” ... With Manning the marquee attraction, the Broncos have drawn 74,209 fans to camp. With five public practices remaining, they could double their old record of 45,124 set last year.

Daily Corinthian • 9A
A group of former Penn State players, led by former quarterback Michael Robinson, has notified the NCAA that it intends to appeal the harsh sanctions placed upon the football program for the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.
Paul V. Kelly, an attorney for former Nittany Lions quarterback Michael Robinson and seven others who played for Penn State at some point during the 14 seasons in which the NCAA vacated victories, sent an intent to appeal letter to the NCAA dated Aug. 7. A Penn State trustee
has sent a similar letter to the NCAA, though the governing body for college sports has said the sanctions are not subject to appeal. The group is challenging the consent decree Penn State President Rodney Erickson signed when the school accepted the penalties last
month, as well as the findings in the Freeh report, which the NCAA used instead of doing its own investigation. “The Appellants challenge the factual findings and conclusions of the consent decree and of the underlying investigative report by Sporkin & Sullivan (the “Freeh Re-
port”), which — without notice , investigation or hearing as required — provided the predicate for the actions taken by the NCAA in this matter.” The letter says many of the findings in the report “are clearly erroneous and not supported by the evidence.”
the track and field competition. Makhloufi made the most of his second chance after he was disqualified when track and field officials ruled he didn’t try hard enough during a heat in the 800. The DQ was overturned after a medical officer reviewed the evidence, and Makhloufi completed the 1,500 in 3 minutes, 34.08 seconds. Pearson got the best of a strong field by clocking an Olympic record 12.35 seconds to edge defending champion Dawn Harper of the U.S. It was Australia’s fourth gold medal of the games. While Bolt moved on with ease, Liu Xiang failed to make it out of the preliminary heats of the 110-meter hurdles for the second straight
Olympics. The 2004 Olympic champion from China stumbled into the first barrier, crumpled to the ground and stayed down for a few moments, clutching his lower right leg. The head of China’s track team, Feng Shuyong, said Liu might have ruptured his right Achilles tendon. The last American boxer in the men’s tournament was eliminated, giving the U.S. team its first Olympic medal shutout. Welterweight Errol Spence dropped a 16-11 decision to Russia’s Andrey Zamkovoy in the quarterfinals. The Dallas-area fighter started slowly and never got going in his team’s ninth loss in 10 fights. Spence only reached
the quarterfinals after the Americans successfully protested a loss to India’s Krishan Vikas over an accumulation of uncalled holding fouls last week. Given a second chance to avoid the shutout, Spence said he had no reason to argue about this loss. “I’m glad a better guy beat me this time, because I didn’t like the way I went out last time,” Spence said. “I didn’t think about the pressure on the team. I just tried to fight my fight, and it didn’t work out. He was the better man.” Track cycling wrapped up at the London Velodrome, and Chris Hoy gave the boisterous crowd one last memory. Hoy broke the Brit-
ish record with his sixth Olympic gold medal, defending his keirin title to finish off a dominating performance by the home nation. “Because this is the end, the last Olympics I’m doing, the last Olympic medal I can win, the nature of the whole event,” Hoy said, “this one was probably the best.” Hoy’s gold gave Britain seven out of 10 awarded at the London Velodrome, matching its haul from the Beijing Games. Anna Meares of Australia won the women’s sprint earlier in the day, beating British rival Victoria Pendleton in the final, while Laura Trott gave the host country a win in women’s omnium.
guy, you never want to be running gassers,” said 305-pound defensive lineman Mike DeVito. “No fight is worth running gassers when you’re over 300 pounds. It gets guys’ minds reset and back to focusing on playing football and not the extra stuff.” Added Smith: “I was just listening for that double whistle so we could stop.” It was the angriest Ryan had been during a practice with the media
watching in his threeplus years as coach. “He’s tired of it,” DeVito said. After the laps, there was another incident on the field during 1-on-1 drills in which offensive lineman Dennis Landolt injured a knee after trying to block defensive lineman Marcus Dixon. Right guard Brandon Moore, who declined to speak after practice, yelled at Dixon, apparently thinking he tried
to hurt Landolt, who was carted off the field with what Ryan called a “subluxed” knee that could sideline him a few weeks. “He knows we’re a
physical team, but we need to take care of each other,” Smith said when asked what Ryan told the players. “We’re not being good teammates right now.”

onds. The World’s Fastest Man repeated in the 100 on Sunday night when his 9.63-second run set an Olympic record. He is trying to become the only man with two Olympic titles in the 200. “I was taking it as easy as possible. It’s my first (200) run,” Bolt said Tuesday. “I’m looking forward to tomorrow.” Algeria’s Taoufik Makhloufi (men’s 1,500 meters), Australia’s Sally Pearson (100-meter hurdles), Germany’s Robert Harting (men’s discus) and Russia’s Ivan Ukhov (men’s high jump) won gold medals on the fifth day of

Tire tests begin for 2013 cars The 2013 model cars that will be run on the Sprint Cup Series next year will begin on-track tire tests August 7-8 at Martinsville Speedway. The cars also will be tested Oct. 4 at Talladega Superspeedway, Oct. 9-10 at Texas Motor Speedway and Oct. 18 at Kansas Speedway. Martinsville Speedway will open its grandstands free of charge, but there apparently will be no representative from Dodge, which has yet to reveal any plans for next season. Jeff Gordon told reporters at Pocono Raceway that he’s interested in learning more from the testing, especially where it concerns plans to take some weight off the cars. “I did not know about them trying to take weight out,” he said. “I have to do a little investigating myself and talk to some of the engineers to see what exactly they are doing there, because if I had to guess, they are not doing near enough, but anything is a gain.” He said that’s an area that should have been looked at long ago. “It’s always been known since the first [Car of Tomorrow] that Goodyear has really struggled trying to build a proper tire for this car, because it has a high [center of gravity] and there’s a lot of weight on the right side and not near enough on the left side,” he said. “So, it just really puts a lot of stress on the right side tires, especially the right front. “Directionally, it’s the right thing to be doing, but until I know a little bit more about exactly what they are doing, I don’t really want to comment on the details of it.”

Gordon breaks records with overdue win in Pocono race
eff Gordon’s drought-breaking 86th career Sprint Cup victory likely will be remembered as a bittersweet one for the veteran driver. The same rainstorms that played into Gordon’s victory at Pocono Raceway also brought lightning that killed one fan and injured nine more, one of whom was in critical condition on Monday. Gordon lined up sixth for what turned out to be the race’s final restart, but surged into the lead when the front two cars of Jimmie Johnson and Matt Kenseth collided on the start. Before racing could resume, storms hit the track, and the race was called after 98 of 160 laps. “It’s nice to know that things can still go our way,” Gordon said. “The way our year has gone, we’ll definitely take it like this. With all the things that have gone wrong for us this year, I’m hoping that this is the one that makes up for it all.” When he was told of the situation with the fans, Gordon acknowledged the impact on his victory, one that put him in great position to claim one of the two wild card slots for the Chase for the Sprint Cup. “That’s the thing that’s going to take away from the victory, is the fact that somebody was affected by that,” he said. “I mean, the fans here are so loyal and avid … so you hate
to hear something like that.” Gordon’s victory was record-setting on two fronts. He now has six at Pocono, the most of any driver, and his 86 Cup wins give him undisputed possession of third place on the alltime list. Although NASCAR’s official records say otherwise, Bobby Allison and most of the sport’s historians say he has 85. And this win didn’t come out of the blue. Gordon had a strong enough car at Pocono to drive to the front from his 27th starting position, and he’s been competitive in recent weeks. “All I will say is we’ve been on a nice streak of finishes,” he said. “Even though they haven’t been wins, they’ve been really solid finishes, top 5s, top 10s, that have gotten us further up in the points. That is something to build on, ’cause this year, the way things have gone, we haven’t had a lot to build on. “The last several weeks, we’ve had something to build on.” Two of Gordon’s Hendrick Motorsports teammates escaped Pocono in better points positions than they might have had. Dale Earnhardt Jr. finished 32nd after breaking a transmission, but retained the series points lead. And Kasey Kahne finished second on a flat tire to maintain his position as the top-seeded wild card contender.
Biddle Ridley, dead at 72 Long before Bill Elliott ever thought about driving a race car, his family’s No. 9 Ford was winning races on the short tracks of the Southeast with Biddle Ridley doing the driving. Ridley, the brother of former Sprint Cup Rookie of the Year Jody Ridley, died July 30 at age 72 after a battle with cancer. “I loved him to death,” Elliott said of Biddle Ridley, a resident of Chatsworth, Ga. “He and Jody about raised me. We raced together, stayed together and traveled a lot together.” Elliott said Biddle Ridley, who put his own driving aside to work on his brother’s cars, was an outstanding driver in his own right. “He was a great driver,” Elliott said. “He won a ton of races.” The Ridleys also played roles in getting Elliott’s driving career started. “They did a lot for me early on,” he said. “I very much enjoyed working with them. They were determined to do well.”
Townley puts off Cup debut After brushing the wall getting up to speed on his first lap of practice at Pocono Raceway, John Wes Townley opted to postpone his Sprint Cup debut. Jason White took over Frank Stoddard’s No. 32 Ford and posted a 31st-place finish. Townley ran the Camping World Truck Series race at Pocono and finished eighth, his firstJohn Wes Townley ever top-10 in a major (NASCAR photo) NASCAR series.
Hamlin to be first-time father Denny Hamlin made a big announcement during his regular media appearance on Friday at Pocono. “I just want to let everyone know that me and Jordan [Fish] are expecting next January, and excited about that,” he said. “It’s been a long time coming, so it’s going to be exciting to be a dad.” He said he hopes he can be as good a father to his child as his dad was to him. “Half of what my dad was would be good,” he said. “My family has done a lot for me to get to this point, obviously, and just all of the sacrifices and all that they’ve gone through. “My dad tells me all of the time that some of the best times he had is just carrying me around in his pickup truck every day, taking me to work with him and things like that. It’s going to be a great experience, and so I’m really excited about it, and really just excited to be a part of it. For my parents to have grandkids is all going to be good.” He also said there might be wedding bells somewhere in his future. “I am 31, so I consider myself pretty patient if I haven’t been married yet,” he said. “There’s no reason to rush into it right now, especially with everything that is going on. “We’ve obviously got a busy six months ahead of us.”
Gordon named humanitarian For his work on behalf of children dealing with serious illnesses, Jeff Gordon has been chosen as the seventh recipient of The Heisman Humanitarian Award, which he will receive during the 78th annual Heisman Memorial Trophy Dinner on Dec. 10 in New York. Gordon established his foundation in 1992 after his then-crew chief Ray Evernham’s son was diagnosed with leukemia. Since then, the foundation has raised more than $11 million. Gordon also opened the Jeff Gordon Children’s Hospital in Concord, N.C. The Heisman award includes $50,000 for Gordon’s foundation.

Chinese drywall turns dream home into a nightmare BY BOBBY J. SMITH email@example.com
(Editorâ€™s Note: Two attempts to get this entire important story into the hands of our important readers have been unsuccessful. With apologies to our faithful readers and this storyâ€™s author, we are pleased to present the article in its entirety. Measures are in place in hopes of preventing this from happening in the future.) Itâ€™s early on a rainy and dreary day. Emily, a 40-year-old mother of three, is sitting in her car, looking across the driveway at the fouryear-old home she bought last April. She thought it would be her dream home, but her experience has been more like a nightmare. In the yard sits a large metal container. It looks like a shipping container that would be used on a boat. The container holds the recently stripped out interior of her home, the toxic Chinese drywall that costed Emily and her family so much â€” even their health. â€œI thought I bought my dream home,â€? said Emily. â€œI had pictures of the front of my house plastered everywhere, at work, on my fridge. It was my first house as a single woman. I thought I did everything right. I brought in a home inspector, I asked all the right questions. How did this happen to me?â€? Emily bought the house from its previous owner in August of 2011. She works hard every day in the medical field, and after saving for a year and a half, she wanted to do everything right. So, she called in a home inspector. After spending over two hours in the house, the home inspector told Emily it was perfect. He couldâ€™t find anything wrong with it, he said. A second home inspection would also get the thumbs up. Soon the air conditioning went out. She called one of the big air conditioning companies in town and they said her AC was low on freon. They had to refill her air conditioning system with Freon four times from August to the following March. â€œFinally that company
called me and said the EPA would not allow them to continue putting Freon in my unit without doing a leak test,â€? Emily remembered. â€œIt was high dollar already. I had only been in the house six months â€” how can it already be a money pit?â€? Emily enlisted Jeff Crabb, of Crabbâ€™s Heating & Air, to do the leak test. â€œHe wasnâ€™t in the house but a couple of minutes and he detected it,â€? Emily said. â€œIt was Chinese drywall. The gases from it corroded the copper in my unit. Thatâ€™s why the Freon was leaking out.â€? Chinese drywall is defective drywall made imported from Chinese manufacturers beginning in the first years of the 21st century. Lab tests have identified emissions of several sulfurous gasses â€” carbon disulfide, carbonyl sulfide and hydrogen sulfide â€” coming from the drywall. These gases emitted by Chinese drywall can be destructive to home materials and pose severe a serious health risk to people exposed to it. Short-term exposure (a period of a few hours) has been shown to result in sore throat, eye irritation, cough, shortness of breath, chest pain and nausea. Longterm exposure over a period of weeks can cause chronic fatigue, insomnia, loss of appetite, dizziness, irritability, headaches and memory loss. The gases from the

drywall had been eating through the copper coiling on Emilyâ€™s air conditioning unit. â€œIf drywall is eating through copper that quickly, then what is it doing to us?â€? Emily said. Once it was pointed out by the air conditioning man, the presence of Chinese drywall was obvious, Emily said. In the unfinished upstairs part of the home there are places where the backs of sheets of drywall are exposed. On the back it is clearly marked: Made in China. â€œThe home inspector either turned a blind eye or didnâ€™t know what that meant,â€? Emily said. â€œHow could you not see that?â€? Four months later, Emily still speaks from a deep sense of gratitude about the man who discovered the cause of her problems. â€œIf there is a hero to my story itâ€™s Jeff Crabb, the man that discovered the Chinese drywall in my home and warned me about the dangers of it,â€? she said. â€œJeff detected it immediately. All AC repairmen in our area need training in this area, because without Jeff, I would still be oblivious and living in it, breathing
it every day.â€? Emily was shocked to learn of the hazardous materials in her home, but it answered a lot of questions, she said. â€œWe were sick all winter, like a really bad upper-respiratory infection. You canâ€™t stay on antibiotics all the time, but it just wouldnâ€™t go away,â€? she said. â€œMy symptoms got worse. Very bad. Very random.â€? She had a constant headache. Her nose ran constantly. It continued to get worse. Emily and her children all developed styes. They would go away and return. Finally, she had to have one removed from the inside of her eyelid. She would later learn that eye irritation is one of the main symptoms of being exposed to the toxic drywall. And Emilyâ€™s family wasnâ€™t alone. â€œAll the houses on my street have it. They were all built at the same time, by the same man, with the same products,â€? she said. â€œWe all have the same symptoms. Soon, on the advice of her friends and mem-
on my credit since I was 17. And I took it on myself to tear my house down and have it rebuilt so my children can have a safe place to grow up.â€? Emily hopes that her story will help other people who are going through similar situations. One way to do that is to teach them how to identify the effects of Chinese drywall. One thing to look for is the tell-tale deterioration of copper coils on an air conditioning system. The copper will be covered by a black, ashy, soot â€” like it has been in a fire â€” and will turn a personâ€™s fingers black if they touch it. Another way to tell is to remove the plate from an electrical outlet and look at the wires. The Chinese drywall often turns these wires black. Another telltale sign is the smell. â€œAfter a while it will smell like sulfur, like the house is burning,â€? Emily explained. Now Emily is looking ahead to the future. Last week she had all new drywall installed in her home. This time it is stamped with the words â€œMade in America.â€?
bers of her family, Emily moved out of what she thought was going to be her dream home. Three months after moving all of the symptoms have disappeared from Emily and her children. While the illnesses are gone, she is still saddled with the financial burden of trying to make her home livable for herself and her family. Her homeownersâ€™ insurance will not pay to have the drywall replaced, so sheâ€™s had to pay for all the work out of her own pocket. â€œI get up at 5:30 every morning and work hard,â€? she said. â€œI had a home inspection. I had my ducks in a row. I followed all the steps. Why is there nothing in place to help people like me? Why â€” on a local, state or federal level â€” is there not somebody to help me? Like a lowinterest home loan, or a break on my taxes. I did nothing wrong.â€? Some have suggested that Emily should just cut her losses, stop making payments and let the house go back to the bank. â€œI canâ€™t do that,â€? she said. â€œIâ€™ve been working

Kossuth High FFA chapter connects with local farmers INDIANAPOLIS – Thousands of FFA members from hundreds of FFA chapters in 12 states have finished a huge effort to connect with local farmers, and one local chapter has taken home a nice prize for its efforts. The Kossuth FFA Chapter received 78 votes from local farmers and placed sixth in the Mississippi standings. As a result, it will receive a $1,250 FFA Certificate of Credit to be used for FFA expenses like official FFA jackets, chapter supplies and registration fees for national FFA leadership conferences. The Kossuth FFA Chapter is located in Kossuth, Mississippi. The Kossuth FFA advisor is Brad Gillmore. The FFA Chapter Challenge, a second year program that expanded to 12 states in 2012, challenged FFA members to meet farmers in their local communities to build relationships and learn about different agricultural careers. After meeting, FFA members encouraged the farmers to vote for their chapter online or over the phone. Monsanto sponsors the FFA Chapter Challenge as a special project of the National FFA Foundation. “The mission of FFA goes beyond farming but its heart will always be in creating new generations of leaders who understand agriculture and small communities,”
said Linda Arnold, Monsanto customer outreach lead. “Monsanto is proud to partner with the National FFA Foundation to help local chapters create that bond with the people who grow our food and build our communities.” Voting for the 2012 FFA Chapter Challenge began Jan. 16. The second-year program expanded to 12 states this year, including Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, Tennessee and Texas. The campaigned finished Feb. 29, with over 10,000 votes coming in during the final week of competition. The contest wrapped up just days after FFA members across the country celebrated National FFA Week, Feb. 18-25. An impressive 856 FFA chapters participated in the FFA Chapter Challenge and nearly a quarter of them will be taking home a nice reward for their hard work. The top FFA chapter in each of the 12 states received a $2,500 FFA Certificate of Credit good for the FFA-related costs, while chapters ranked second through tenth in each state received credits worth between $1,000 and $2,000. 80 other atlarge chapters received credits worth $1,000. The Lawrence County FFA Chapter in Moulton, Ala., won the 2012 FFA

Corinth High School freshmen and their parents got an opportunity last week to pick up their schedules and walk through them prior to the start of school on Aug. 9. The event also gave the students an opportunity to talk with CHS Principal Russ Elam and CHS Assistant Principal Jeannie Sauls. Most of the teachers whom the students will have during their first semester in high school were also on hand to visit with them Tuesday night. One of the more challenging things during the evening was attempting to open their lockers after being issued the combinations for the locks. Sophomores, juniors and seniors or any freshman who didn’t attend orientation may pick up their schedules from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. today. The students are asked to bring a copy of two proofs of residency when they come to pick up their schedules. The Corinth School District is required by the state to have two current proofs of residency on file for a student to be eligible for enrollment. Acceptable documents to support proof of residency include the following: filed Homestead Exemption application form; mortgage documents or property deed; apartment or home lease; utility bill (only one will be accepted); driver’s license; voter precinct identification; and automobile registration.

Horoscopes BY HOLIDAY MATHIS Creator’s Syndicate
Fewer communication errors and misunderstandings will occur. Mercury has ceased his retrograde antics and will maintain direct motion through November 6. If you had the flexibility of mind to see the humor, you may even find that you miss the entertaining little mishaps the Mercury retrograde brought. ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll enjoy relating to the cultured, artistic types you run into today, because you are so much alike. Your generosity and attention will be much appreciated, and you’ll gain a fan. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Fear is like a wild horse. If you’re going to ride it, you must first become its master. There is a dominant part of you that can communicate with this wildness inside of you. Show it who’s boss. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Material goods, education and relation-
ships are elusive forms of security. A stronger sense of security comes from faith in your beliefs, whether it’s faith in a higher power inside of you, the goodness of the universe or love itself. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Today’s events unfold much the same as yesterday’s, but you’ll be happier about them, maybe because your observation is sharper. You’ll catch the opportunities you were too busy to see before. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). What took you a long time to accomplish could be quickly undone if you involve the wrong people. Be cautious in your dealings. Stick with people who have proved themselves worthy of your trust. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). While it’s easy to tell when you’re progressing at work, social advancement is a trickier equation that depends on your ability to read subtle cues correctly. You’ll be brilliant
at this now. LIBRA (Sept. 23Oct. 23). Life as usual doesn’t showcase your talents as well as stepping into unknown territory does. Your uniqueness shines through in novel situations. SCORPIO (Oct. 24Nov. 21). Success depends on doing what people care about, talking about what people are interested in and generally thinking of others. You won’t lose yourself, as there will be plenty of overlapping commonalities. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There is no need to divide the world into winners and losers. There are so many factors involved in your quest today that polarized thinking such as this would be counterproductive. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). This is true, yet difficult to believe: There are people in the world who don’t like pie. Many will love what you offer, and there’s no good reason to take of-
fense if there are a few who don’t. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18). You can waste time with the best of ‘em. But are you really wasting time? Following what interests you and finding reasons to think, giggle or lighten your mood is anything but wasteful. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The person who encourages you to grow, to trust your decisions and to see life as an endless series of opportunities is your true friend, if not your true love. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 8). You have a knack for finding worthwhile endeavors and valuable items this year and will on several occasions make money with this talent. Love grows through the fall. You’ll seek new purpose in October. November brings travel and family fun. You could start a new job or community effort in May. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 30, 1, 24 and 19.
