Alcorn County supervisors US indictment seeking bridge replacement for $20 bill gets BY JEBB JOHNSTON

Alcorn County will seek a major bridge replacement on Smithbridge Road. Cook Coggin Engineers will submit a proposed $3 million bridge replacement project on County Road 750 to the state aid program for consideration. The bridge crosses the Tuscumbia canal. “That’s something that has been needed for a long time,” said Board President Lowell Hinton. In other business this week: ■ The board officially released the contractor, Eutaw

Construction, and accepted the Kimberly Clark Parkway following the final inspection. Supervisors are interested, however, in the possibility of the road being maintained by the state highway department and requested that Cook Coggin Engineers look into making a formal request. ■ The board approved pay increases for some departments as proposed in the new fiscal year budget; the 911 office’s request was tabled. Sheriff Charles Rinehart proposed a 3 percent raise for sheriff’s department employees who had not had a raise in six years,

he said. ■ Supervisors concurred with the city’s reappointment of tourism board members Pauline Sorrell and Billy Taylor. ■ The board opened bids on the sale of landfill equipment and took them under advisement for further study. ■ The board accepted Commerce National Bank’s bid of 1.55 percent on a $900,000 negotiable note. Other bids: Regions — 1.84 percent, Trustmark — 1.91 percent, BancorpSouth — 2.11 percent, Farmers & Merchants — 2.22 percent.


An allegedly counterfeit $20 bill passed at a Corinth supermarket has led to the indictment of a Booneville woman in federal court. Jennifer Strange, 34, of Booneville, was indicted last month by a federal grand jury on one count of passing or uttering counterfeit obligations.

She entered a plea of not guilty Monday in U.S. District Court in Oxford and has been released on an unsecured bond of $5,000. Strange is accused of passing a forged $20 bill at Rogers Supermarket on or about March 11, 2013. The indictment alleges Strange knew the note was false and used the fake bill with the intent to defraud the business.

Corinth readies C Spire’s Fiber to the Home plan The City of Corinth is pushing forward its campaign to have Corinth designated as one of C Spire’s first Fiber to the Home communities. Last month, C Spire announced its “Get Fiber First” initiative, a competition to become one of C Spire’s first launch locations for ultra highspeed broadband service to the home. Speeds for C Spire’s Fiber to the Home service are expected to be 100 times faster than most current broadband services currently available in the Corinth market. The ultrafast 1 GBPS Internet connection can also provide home phone and television service over fiber optic connections directly to the home. Fiber to the home greatly increases your current internet broadband speed and capacity, allowing streaming of multiple movies on multiple devices in the home, it provides web browsing with instant page changes, no buffering, and much more. The impact of the service on the Corinth School District would be significant. Corinth School District Superintendent Dr. Lee Childress says, “Corinth Fiber to the Home will open many exciting opportunities for students and parents in the Corinth School District. This service will enable the Corinth Schools to explore many new technology opportunities for our students as we work to provide them with the technology, college, and career readiness skills they need to be successful

Pink Chics urge team effort for breast cancer awareness BY STEVE BEAVERS

A pair of local women are getting the word out about breast cancer. Their call for more awareness about the dreaded disease can be found on the back of a T-shirt. Pink Chics – the two-woman Relay for Life team of Kristy Knight and Lisa Parks – is encouraging the public to become part of its team effort of Mission Pink. “The more attention we

bring to breast cancer, maybe people will take it more serious,” said Knight. “There are so many people in our community who have been affected by the cancer,” added Parks. It’s those people the two keep fighting for. “A big part why my family is really behind this is a special neighbor of ours,” said Knight. Knight’s neighbor, Larry Hardin, has Mantle cell lymphoma (MCL). “He is the best neighbor

ever,” said Knight. According to the American Cancer Society, breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women. Those rates have been going down due to early detection and better treatment. Currently, there are more than 2.8 million breast cancer survivors in the United States. About one in every eight women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course Please see PINK | 3

in a global economy.” Magnolia Regional Health Center officials say access to the high-speed service would provide benefits both to their operations and to their patients and staff. “The Magnolia Regional Health Center Medical Staff and Board of Trustees made a proactive commitment to lead the implementation of several new electronic practices aimed at improving the safety of our patient population by transitioning to full Electronic Medical Record on October 1, 2013. In doing so our increased use of computer systems warrants the great need for increased bandwidth to our hospital and to our medical community. C-Spire selecting Corinth as the first launch location would be a benefit to the health and wellbeing of our patients,” said MRHC CEO Ronny Humes. Corinth Mayor Tommy Irwin, with a team of local elected officials and community leaders, attended C Spire’s Town Hall Meeting in Ridgeland last week to learn more about the competition. Mayor Irwin states, “Our goal is to put Corinth in a position to thrive and grow. C Spire’s Fiber to the Home service will allow our community to offer ultra fast broadband to our residents, putting us in select company considering only a host of cities around the country currently have such service. The possibilities are endless.” The competition consists Please see FIBER | 3

Today in history Today is Thursday, Oct. 10, the 283rd day of 2013. There are 82 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 10, 1962, President John F. Kennedy, responding to the thalidomide birth defects crisis, signed an amendment to the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act requiring pharmaceutical companies to prove that their products were safe and effective prior to marketing.

On this date: In 1845, the U.S. Naval Academy was established in Annapolis, Md. In 1911, Chinese revolutionaries launched an uprising which led to the collapse of the Qing (or Manchu) Dynasty and the establishment of the Republic of China. California voters approved Proposition 4, giving women the right to vote, and Proposition 7, which established the initiative process for proposing and enacting new laws. In 1913, the Panama Canal was effectively completed as President Woodrow Wilson sent a signal from the White House by telegraph, setting off explosives that destroyed a section of the Gamboa dike. In 1938, Nazi Germany completed its annexation of Czechoslovakia’s Sudetenland. In 1943, Chiang Kaishek took the oath of office as president of China. In 1957, President Dwight D. Eisenhower apologized to the finance minister of Ghana, Komla Agbeli Gbdemah, after the official was refused seating in a Howard Johnson’s restaurant near Dover, Del. In 1967, the Outer Space Treaty, prohibiting the placing of weapons of mass destruction on the moon or elsewhere in space, entered into force. In 1970, Quebec Labor Minister Pierre Laporte was kidnapped by the Quebec Liberation Front, a militant separatist group. In 1973, Vice President Spiro T. Agnew, accused of accepting bribes, pleaded no contest to one count of federal income tax evasion, and resigned his office. In 1982, Father Maximilian Kolbe, who died in the Auschwitz Nazi concentration camp, was canonized by Pope John Paul II. In 1985, U.S. fighter jets forced an Egyptian plane carrying the hijackers of the Italian cruise ship Achille Lauro to land in Italy, where the gunmen were taken into custody.

Timber company brings jobs to Prentiss BY BRANT SAPPINGTON bsappington@

A nearly $2 million investment in a local timber company will generate more than three dozen new jobs in Prentiss County. Maple Land and Timber have announced the expansion of its company, American Land and Timber. The project will include the construction of a new 20,000-squarefoot facility and a new sawmill at the site on Mississippi Highway 30 west of the 30/145 interchange near Frankstown. The company is investing $1.95 million in the project and plans to create 38 new jobs at the fa-

“The addition of this new sawmill and facility, as well as the jobs being created, will have a positive impact on the local community and economy.� Brent Christensen MDA executive director cility which will produce lumber to supply overseas markets. The company has operated in the county since 1984, producing hardwood and pine lumber, pallet materials and railroad crossties. Prentiss County Development Association Executive Director Leon

Hays said he’s grateful for the company’s willingness to invest in Prentiss County. “We’re happy that the company made the choice to invest in Prentiss County. We’re glad that Maple Land and Timber is creating 38 new jobs and excited about the future of the


cess in Prentiss County.� The Mississippi Development Authority has been involved in the project and provided state tax incentives to support the company’s expansion. “The addition of this new sawmill and facility, as well as the jobs being created, will have a positive impact on the local community and economy. It also serves as a testament to the favorable business climate companies enjoy in Mississippi,� said MDA Executive Director Brent Christensen. “We congratulate Maple Land and Timber on its growth in Prentiss County and thank our local economic development partners for working to bring this project to fruition.�



of two Phases. Phase 1 consists of a Request for Information (RFI) to local entities, combined with individual interest registrations. At the end of this phase C Spire will choose one or more finalist locations (city, county, or other district). Corinth is currently in Phase 1. Phase 2 will challenge individuals to officially pre-register for service in neighborhoods of the finalist locations. A team of city and community leaders met and determined what needs to be done in order to complete the RFI. The City is working closely with the Corinth School District, Magnolia Regional Health Center and The Alliance to complete the RFI. The RFI response is due October 20. An important part of Phase I is determining the community’s level of interest and support

for Fiber to the Home. Corinth cannot have a winning application and become a launch site in Mississippi without the involvement of the community. “Individual registrations are fundamental in Phase I,� said Gary Chandler, President of The Alliance. “We are encouraging Corinthians to register their interest in the service. Our efforts to do this are manifold including, but not limited to a massive social media campaign, promotional booths at various events around town including Corinth High School home football games and the recent Hog Wild Festival, a digital billboard campaign and public service announcements.� Chandler says the potential impact on the economic development front could be a game changer. “This is another tool in our arsenal to use when manufacturers are look-

ing at our community. Very few communities, specifically in our region, have such highspeed Internet service. In terms of recruiting, it truly opens up doors for us that we traditionally have not been able to crack.� Corinth Alderman Bubba Labas said, “We are very close to completing our proposal. This has been a full court press for the last two weeks and we believe our proposal is strong. As we understand it, the winning locations will be announced on November 4, so we need Corinth residents to sign up immediately. Our social media push to drive sign-ups has been significant. Our theme is #CorinthFiberFirst and it is going viral.� Corinthians may express their interest in the C Spire Get Fiber First service by going to fiberhome/fiber_signup. html.

Nathan B. Forrest by Mike Cole, Gen. William J. Hardee by Fred Lincoln and Gen. Ulysses S. Grant by Curt Fields. Contributions toward the ongoing restoration of the Verandah Curlee House will also be ac-

cepted at the event and they will be tax deductible, according to Mangus. (For more information about this event please call Mangus at 662-2870766 or at 662-8729180.)


the event. “Since many of the generals were here in Corinth during the Battle of Shiloh and the Siege and Battle for Corinth, they have asked that donations be accepted for the restoration of the Verandah House, where many of them visited or actually stayed there in 1862.� The audience will have an opportunity to ask questions of the generals.

Governor Phil Bryant lauded the announcement as proof of an improving economy. “I appreciate the team at Maple Land and Timber for investing in its operations and creating these new jobs for the area’s residents,� said the governor. “This has been an excellent year for economic development in Mississippi, and this expansion is proof that our economy is getting stronger and that great things are taking place in our state.

of her lifetime. The Pink Chics, formed when Knight and Parks were coworkers at Quebecor World, are committed in encouraging both women and men to have regular exams. “This is something we are really pushing through the shirts,� said Knight. During the first two years, the two only sold shirts to company employees in effort to raise money to battle the disease. Quebecor World’s closure cut the team drastically. “We started as a company team and now it’s basically a family effort,� said Knight. Knight and Parks have the rare distinction of being two-time winners of the Rookie of the Year award given by Relay of Life. Their devotion to the cause is evident by the time amount of time spent through the years at the annual relay event at Crossroads Regional Park. “Our kids and grandchildren have spent their birthday parties

What If the Church Shut Down? Well, it finally happened. The federal government has shutdown, bringing numerous federal programs to a halt. But as we enter into the second week of this shutdown what is most noticeable to people is how inconspicuous this shutdown has been in our daily lives. In fact, life has simply gone on. And this confirms two things in my mind: 1) Christ was correct when he said that he held all true power, both in Heaven and on Earth (Matt. 28:18). Though the federal government has shut down and the neverending news cycle predicts the sky is falling because of it, it is good to be reminded that the Kingdom of God hasn’t put up a “Closed for Businessâ€? sign, and it is still taking care of us (Jas 1:17). 2) It also reminds me that oftentimes we take the church and her charity work for granted when we’re not in need of it. But at a time when 800,000 federal employees are unexpectedly left without their next paycheck, someone or something must step in and help them in their time of need. And it won’t be the person who processes unemployment applications-they’re on furlough, too. Yet, amidst all this chaos, there stands Christ and His church (Rom 16:16). Helping people is what the church is experts at doing (Acts 6:1-8)! We’ve been mastering the art of benevolence for 2,000 years now! The church of the New Testament (Romans 16:16) is perfectly capable of providing these much-needed resources to the community that enjoys them. We have been praying for each other during sicknesses (James 5:16), helping each other during the tough times (Matt. 25:35-40), and we watch after each other’s children (Psalm 127:3). We encourage one another (Gal. 6:1-3). We lift one another up (Heb. 10:24-25), watching after one another (1 Thess. 5:11), and we’ve been doing all this based on unity and loving each other for thousands of years‌ ‌And there’s no sign of a shutdown yet.

out there because that’s where we were at,� said Knight. Through their business, Serendipity Shirt Shack, the two Pink Chics are churning out shirts for this month’s Breast Cancer Awareness. This year’s shirt features numerous encouragements dealing with breast cancer in the form of a pink ribbon on the back. Mission Pink is listed on the left side on the front of the shirt. “There are so many different things out there today promoting awareness,� sad Parks. “We wanted something cool and hip,�added Knight with a laugh. Shirts come in the colors of charcoal gray, heather purple and navy. Sizes available are small to extra large. Long sleeve versions are also available in gray and navy. Cost is $12 for short sleeve and $15 for long sleeve. “Our goal is to really hit it hard with all the proceeds going to relay,� said Knight.

Faith demands action to care for the poor BY REP. CECIL BROWN State Representative

In recent public statements, both Gov. Phil Bryant and Speaker of the House Philip Gunn have raised the issue of religion and how it affects their work in the public offices they hold. Gov. Bryant told a group of school kids that Christianity “shapes his world view.” He went on to say that his Christian faith leads him to oppose abortion and support the display of nativity scenes on government property. He has also opposed any and all efforts to create health care exchanges and has opposed Medicaid health insurance expansion. Speaker Gunn said he opposes expansion of Medicaid health insurance coverage for the poor because, he argues, that his reading of the Bible indicates that “It is not the government’s job to take care of its citizens” and that “people should not look to the government for their provision, their dependence or their joy.” I read these opinions and thought how different they are from how Christianity and the Bible inform my own world view. For the religious community, caring for the poor and the sick is a timeless obligation. And while clearly the church and the non-profit community have a role to play in fulfilling that obligation, I believe that the government, as a human institution created under the authority of God, also has a role to play. When we consider the expansion of Medicaid in Mississippi, for example, we are looking at an opportunity to fulfill Christ’s declaration that “these signs shall follow them that believe . . . they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.” (Mark, 16:17-18) Certainly we cannot be like Jesus “healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people,” (Mathew, 4:23), but we can facilitate healing by offering health care to the hundreds of thousands of poor Mississippians who are currently uninsured through the expansion of the Medicaid program and a state-based health insurance exchange. If, in fact, the government has no role to play in caring for its citizens, we would not sanction federal aid for hurricane victims. The federally subsidized flood insurance program would be totally privatized. We would abandon the federal school lunch program. There would be no need for the Mississippi departments of health or mental health. We would shut down Meals on Wheels and the federal unemployment insurance program. Medicare and Medicaid would be eliminated. All federal assistance for the creation of small businesses would be repealed. Obviously the people of this state and this country, through their elected representatives, have decided that these government programs serve important social welfare needs. Certainly the Speaker and the Governor should look to their faith to help guide the important decisions they make. However, neither they nor any other humans are infallible. There are many people of great faith who believe that Christ clearly calls on us to serve people in need, and this government “of the people, by the people, for the people” gives us one more way to do so. For many Christians, caring for the poor, the sick the needy is a duty that comes from God. For that reason, God’s people should not stand aside when we have the opportunity to extend health insurance to thousands of low-income working Mississippians through the Medicaid program and a state-based health insurance exchange.

Prayer for today My Father, I would pray that my sense of gloom may not be more than thy grace. May the glorious light of thy love break through my disheartened soul, and reveal the sincerity of thy promises, that I may be happy in thy care. Amen.

A verse to share “For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” Matthew 16:26

UAW seeks pawns in effort to slow union’s decline As noted in prior columns on this topic, the United Auto Workers is digging in for a global battle for the survival of the declining union and the epicenter of the fight is Canton, Mississippi’s Nissan plant. The New York Times this week produced a sweeping account of the UAW’s strategies in Mississippi and linked those strategies to a global effort to force Nissan to knuckle under to union organizers. The Times outlined an unprecedented union organization push that will attempt to rely on global leverage against Nissan as well as the interjection of “civil rights” into the debate. “The union has also helped create a group of students and community and religious leaders, the Mississippi Alliance for Fairness at Nissan, which includes the NAACP,” according to the newspaper. “The alliance often uses the slogan, ‘Labor Rights Are Civil Rights.’ ” In addition, the newspaper reported that the UAW “has sent a team of Mississippi ministers and workers to South Africa, where Nissan has an assembly plant, to try to embarrass the company with accusations that it violates workers’ rights at the Canton plant.” If a labor union is looking for a backdrop from

which to try to establish linkage between civil rights and union rights, Mississippi’s Sid Salter history ofoptics. Columnist fers But the less than subtle attempt to interject racial overtones into a unionization fight is reprehensible. The average wage at Nissan is $23.22 an hour or $48,297 per year. And that’s in a state with a median household income of a lowest-in-the-nation $37,095. But if the UAW is to be successful, they must convince workers not to think about employment opportunities in Canton prior to Nissan, but about employment opportunities thousands of miles away from Canton. Reports of UAW activities in Brazil, France and Japan are all linked to the push to unionize the Nissan plant in Canton. Two prior UAW efforts to unionize the Canton plant have failed. Nissan workers in Smyrna, Tenn., rejected a union vote at that facility in 2001. And while the UAW’s effort to break Mississippi’s “right to work” state status with a successful unionization push at the Nissan plant in Canton is understandable from the perspective of perpetuating

the existence of the UAW, it’s less clear the benefit to the plant’s workers. The UAW pitch is predictable, despite the fact that the federal government now performs at taxpayer expense most of the functions that made unions important over the last century. How are workers protected in the United States? Let me count the ways. Worried about unsafe working conditions? There’s OSHA. Worried about interference with union organizing efforts? There’s the National Labor Relations Board. Concerned about injuries on the job? There’s Worker’s Compensation and the courts. Is your job causing health and family concerns? There’s the Family Medical Leave Act. What about the disabled? There’s the Americans With Disabilities Act. Are you fearful about the exploitation of child labor? There’s the Department of Labor. Do you have wage and hour violations? Again, there’s the Dept. of Labor. Are you the victim of job discrimination? Thank goodness for the Federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. All those protections are important and necessary. And, yes, organized labor in the long run played an important role in winning some of those protections.

But in recent years, unions have become far less about protecting workers and far more about protecting the political relationship between the union bosses and the politicians who protect them on Capitol Hill. To survive, the UAW must abandon the ruins of old Detroit and infiltrate the foreign-owned automakers in “Detroit South.” That’s why they seek to make Nissan in Mississippi the first domino to fall. politicians who do their bidding on Capitol Hill. Those who shriek about the relationship between Big Business and the GOP tend to get lockjaw when it’s time to talk about the relationship between the Democrats and the union bosses. The UAW wants to infiltrate Detroit South and suck it dry just like they did in old Detroit. Getting their hooks into the foreign auto manufacturers in the Deep South is the goal, not protecting workers. What union infiltration of the Mississippi auto manufacturing industry will ultimately do is put Mississippi workers who have good jobs at good wages out of work all in the name of pumping new union dues into the dying carcass of the national organized labor hierarchy.

Hail to the Washington Redskins, focus of liberal hate The Washington Redskins have a problem. The football team’s nickname is offensive to members of an easily aggrieved group that is determined to make pointless gestures toward righting historic wrongs through a grim lack of proportion. In other words, its nickname is offensive to American liberals. The epicenter of the antiRedskins resistance is editors of liberal websites and magazines like Slate and Mother Jones who have decided to banish the word from their football coverage, such as it is. Needless to say, if you get your gridiron news from Mother Jones, you probably care more about the team’s labor practices and its carbon footprint than the performance of its positional units on any given Sunday. President Barack Obama validated the offense-taking when he said in a recent interview that if he were owner of the team, he would consider changing the nickname, displaying, as usual, an officious inability to leave any presidential opinion unexpressed. The roots of the Redskins go back to 1930s Boston.

The team was known as the Braves when it played at Braves Field alongside the alliterative Rich baseball team Lowry the Boston Braves, then National to Review switched the Redskins when it went to Fenway Park to play alongside the Red Sox. A few years later, the team decamped to Washington. In the consciousness of the nation’s capital, the Redskins exist somewhere between a beloved sports team and the object of a quasireligious veneration. The team has a rich tradition, including a 70-year-old fight song, “Hail to the Redskins,” performed by a marching band (“Braves on the Warpath!/Fight for old D.C.!”). Its burgundy-and-gold uniforms and its logo are iconic, and the team’s long rivalry with the Dallas Cowboys has always made its nickname seem perfectly apt. Surely, the franchise didn’t settle on its nickname as a way to slight Native Americans. San Francisco didn’t choose the name “49ers”

because it wanted to mock the foolish desperation of people panning for gold in the mid-19th century. Dallas didn’t pick the name “Cowboys” to highlight the gunslinging violence of life on the American frontier. Team nicknames invariably denote fierceness and strength, which in the context of the NFL are very good things. Yes, the name “Redskins” is an anachronism, but it is a harmless one. It isn’t meant as a statement of how people should refer to Native Americans, nor would any rational person take it as such. A team nickname is a highly stylized symbol utterly removed from reality. Are we supposed to believe that the team’s cheerleaders are popularly known as the Redskinettes because that’s what people think Native Americans called their women? In an ecstatic Pittsburgh, baseball fans have been waving black flags with skulls and crossbones to root on their surprising Pirates. No one stops to object that the Barbary pirates did terrible things centuries ago, as do Somali pirates today, and therefore everyone in

Pittsburgh is making light of murder and mayhem on the high seas. This would obviously be an absurd overinterpretation of an innocent team nickname and the good-natured spiritedness surrounding it. But absurd overinterpretation is endemic to the antiRedskins case. Psychologist Michael Friedman, Ph.D., seriously maintains, “Not only does the use of this slur risk causing direct damage to the mental and physical health of our country’s Native American population, it also puts us all at risk for both participating in and being harmed by ongoing prejudice.” On the website Salon, English professor Steven Salaita argues that the nickname involves “the peculiar disquiet of a whiteness perceived to be in decline.” This would be news to Redskins fans, who are evidently feeling a rather mundane disquiet over a 1-3 start and the state of star quarterback Robert Griffin III’s surgically repaired knee. Sometimes football is just football. Rich Lowry can be reached via e-mail:

Obama plans talks with Republicans WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is making plans to talk with Republican lawmakers at the White House in the coming days as pressure builds on both sides to resolve their deadlock over the federal debt limit and the partial government shutdown. With the shutdown in its ninth day Wednesday and a potential economy-shaking federal default edging ever closer, neither side was revealing clear signs of bending. Amid the tough talk, though, there were hints of the possibility of a brief truce. There were indications that both sides might be open to a short-term extension of the $16.7 trillion borrowing limit and a temporary end to the shutdown, giving them more time to resolve their disputes. Obama was to huddle with House Democrats Wednesday afternoon as both parties look for a way forward. So far, the underlying standoff remains the same. Republicans demand talks on deficit reduction and Obama’s 2010 health care law as the price for boosting the government’s borrowing authority and returning civil servants to work. The president insists that Congress first end the shutdown and extend the debt limit before he will negotiate. “Speaker Boehner

could end this government shutdown today, an hour from now� by letting the House vote to do so, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said Wednesday of House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio. Don Stewart, spokesman for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said GOP senators hoped Obama’s desire to meet with them meant he was willing to bargain. “But if this is a meeting where he simply reiterates that he won’t negotiate, this meeting will not be productive,� Stewart said.

Boston buses rolling after strike BOSTON — Boston school buses started rolling again Wednesday morning, the day after a surprise strike by about 600 drivers, but school officials warned that the dispute that led to the work stoppage was not resolved. “We’re still concerned about a similar action at any time, and we’re keeping our contingency plans in place,� schools spokesman Brian Ballou said, while warning that there may be delays and the buses couldn’t be counted on for rides home. The drivers’ union said drivers agreed to return to work after the company contracted by the city to transport students, Veolia Transportation Inc., agreed to meet with the union on Wednesday to discuss grievances. Mayor Tom Menino, who was outraged by

the strike and vowed to use every legal avenue available to get drivers back to work and to punish those responsible for the work stoppage, called the development “very good news.� The wildcat strike Tuesday stranded about 33,000 children, who were shuttled to schools in police cars and offered free rides on public transportation. The school department said students had an 82 percent attendance rate Tuesday, about 10 percent lower than a normal day. Boston schools opened an hour early Wednesday for parents who wanted to drop off their children before work.

Man seeks reduced jail time in carjacking JACKSON — A man who pleaded guilty to an armed carjacking in central Mississippi has asked a federal judge to throw out part of his 10year sentence. Ryan Quincy Pugh, 32, pleaded guilty to two charges in August 2008 related to a carjacking in the Jackson suburb of Byram. He was sentenced to 37 months for carjacking and 84 months for using a gun during a crime of violence. The sentences were to run consecutively. In a motion filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Jackson, Pugh argues he was only charged with using or carrying a firearm in a crime of violence, but was sentenced for “brandishing� the weapon. He claims he should have been sentenced to five years on that count instead of seven, based on sentencing guidelines.

3 in US win Nobel Prize for chemistry NEW YORK — Three U.S.-based scientists won a Nobel Prize on Wednesday for developing a powerful new way to do chemistry on a computer. They pioneered highly sophisticated computer simulations of complex chemical processes, giving researchers tools they are now using for a wide variety of tasks, such as designing new drugs and solar cells. “Today the computer is just as important a tool for chemists as the test tube,� the Swedish Academy of Sciences said in announcing this year’s $1.2 million chemistry prize. “Simulations are so realistic that they predict the outcome of traditional experiments.�

Teen arrested in 2 explosives incidents MCCOMB — A McComb teenager has been charged with two counts of placing or planting a bomb or explosive weapon after two incidents in the past week. Police Detective Deska Varnado tells the Enterprise-Journal that 18-year-old Kaylubglenn Leviticus Lemieux was arrested at his home Friday. Lemieux was being held Wednesday in the county jail on a $250,000 bond. Prosecutors say each

count carries a maximum life sentence. No one was hurt in the incidents. Authorities say an explosive detonated Thursday outside a Dollar General store on U.S. Highway 51 south of Summit.

Jones: Play incident is learning opportunity GREENWOOD — The chancellor of the University of Mississippi says the disruptions at a campus play with gay slurs and inappropriate laughter from the audience is an opportunity to educate students about tolerance. Chancellor Dan Jones met Monday with the editorial board of the Greenwood Commonwealth. Jones was asked about the play at the meeting. The disturbances occurred Oct. 1 during a university theater department production of “The Laramie Project,” which is about an openly gay man who was murdered in Wyoming. Ole Miss officials say the dark theater made it hard to identify specific people, and early reports differ about the frequency, volume and source of comments. Jones says those in the audience were almost exclusively freshmen, who were attending the three-hour play as a course requirement.

USA International Ballet kicks off in June JACKSON — Top young dancers from around the globe will perform next June during the festival of dance, also known as the 2014 USA International Ballet Competition. USA IBC will celebrate 35 years in Jackson during the two-week event that begins June 14. USA IBC Executive director Sue Lobrano said organizers expect between 30,000 and 40,000 to attend some or all the 18 scheduled performances. Lobrano said at a news conference Tuyesday that IBC’s opening ceremony will feature the contemporary New York-based dance company Complexions. The event — the 10th in Jackson — runs from June 14 to June 29. Organizers expect about 100 professional and amateur dancers from around the world to compete in junior (ages 15-18) and senior (ages 19-26) divisions. Dancers compete for medals, cash awards, scholarships and company contracts. Edward Villella will be the jury chairman for the 2014 USA International Ballet Competition. Villella was a New York City Ballet principal for many years and was the founding director of the acclaimed Miami City Ballet. “It’s not just about competing and winning,” he said. “It’s an invitation into a global view of the field of dance.” He said the gathering of dancers, teachers and coaches is a valuable resource for artistic reference. Villella said dancers are exposed to so many different approaches and he hopes young competitors will broaden their understanding beyond “their own slice of dance.”

Horn Lake voters ratify hotel-motel tax HORN LAKE — Horn Lake voters handily approved a $2-per-night tax on hotel and motel stays, providing a financial boost that city officials will use to promote economic development. According to complete but unofficial totals, the proposed tax got 415 favorable votes, or 91.4 percent, compared to 39 votes, or 8.6 percent, against it. As expected, turnout was low Tuesday, with only 3.4 percent of the city’s 13,264 registered voters casting ballots. Mayor Allen Latimer says the tax should generate $80,000 to $100,000 annually.

Old cast-off: Mastodon tooth found in donation box GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A Michigan charity that collects donated clothing, shoes and other items for low-income residents got a really old cast-off in a donation box: A mastodon tooth. The Grand Rapids Press reports the remains of the extinct relative of the elephant turned up during a July pickup in Grand Rapids. The charity called In The Image turned them over to the Grand Rapids Public Museum, which is adding them to its collection. The tooth is broken into two

parts and is covered in lacquer. A tusk, also covered in lacquer, is hollow at one end and also may be from a mastodon.

Detective arrested in NYC motorcycle-SUV melee NEW YORK — An undercover police detective was arrested as fallout from a burst of motorcyclist mayhem reached a new level, with investigators saying the officer was shown on video hitting and kicking an SUV before bikers attacked its driver. Wojciech Braszczok, who was off-duty when he joined a motorcycle rally that spiraled into

violence, was expected to be arraigned Wednesday. He surrendered Tuesday to face riot and criminal mischief charges, New York Police Department spokesman John McCarthy said. There was no immediate response to phone messages left with Braszczok’s attorney, Phil Karasyk. The arrest added to the complexities of the Sept. 29 episode, which authorities say began with a reckless motorcycle group ride on a Manhattan highway. One motorcyclist was run over, and the SUV driver was dragged from behind the wheel and beaten on a street.

Fall enrollment increases Northeast Faculty Association at Blue Mountain College leading fundraising campaign Total enrollment figures for the fall semester at Blue Mountain College are up 2.8 percent over a year ago, school administrators said. The total enrollment – including full-time, part-time and graduate students – at the private, liberal arts college affiliated with the Mississippi Baptist Convention sits at 527 students, up from 512 in the fall of 2012. “Having graduated the largest class in the College’s history this past spring, we are very pleased to see this increase in total enrollment,” said Dr. Barbara Childers McMillin, BMC president. “We are optimistic that we will add to

this number as more students enroll in the second eight-week session of our online business program beginning October 21.” Enrollment at BMC has climbed continually over the past 10 years, showing a 27.9 percent increase during that time. The number of male students has shown the largest increase the past decade – 59.8 percent, and 50.5 percent since BMC became fully coeducational in the fall of 2006. Founded in 1873 as an all-female institution, the BMC student body is now made up of 313 females (58.5 percent) and 214 males (41.5 percent).

BOONEVILLE — At Northeast Mississippi Community College, the Northeast Faculty Association takes on projects each academic year aimed at creating a better learning and professional environment at the twoyear college. The NFA spearheaded the drive to make Northeast’s campuses smokefree. At its August meeting the NFA voted to initiate a fundraising campaign to support the purchase of Automatic External Defibrillators for the campus. NFA president Glenice Stone said the association also formed a sub-committee to conduct further research on the equipment needed.

Cost of the portable defibrillator, used to restart a heart that has stopped, is about $1,500. Through the efforts of a subcommittee of the association, the Weston Reed Foundation donated an AED to Northeast. The subcommittee includes division of health sciences faculty Paula Stennett, chair, Mary Sue Perrigo, Amanda Sullivan, and Felicia Crump. “We have a few, but we can always use more in the event that a student, faculty member or guest goes into cardiac arrest,” Perrigo said. One defibrillator is stored in Dental Hygiene area on the fourth floor of Childers Hall. The Athletic Department has a couple at its disposal.

Coming Up In The Daily Corinthian The Boys and Girls Club prepares to name its youth of the year. Find out who it is this week.

Visiting mom’s sweet perfume puts household in sour mood DEAR ABBY: My problem is my mother-in-law and her abundant use of perfume. The last time she visited, it was so bad we had to open our windows to air out the rooms. (This was in January in Minnesota.) My husband addressed the problem with her when I was pregnant, but now that the baby is here she’s back to her old habits. We are all sensitive to perfumes and get headaches when exposed to it. When she visits, we can’t get away from the smell. I don’t wear perfume, but was always told that “perfume is to be discovered, never announced.” However, when I say that around her, she dismisses it. What’s the proper etiquette in addressing the perfume cloud that surrounds her? -- THE NOSE KNOWS DEAR NOSE: I receive complaints about perfumes almost daily. Perfume “in abundance” can cause serious allergic reactions in people who are sensitive to it. And when they are exposed to it in enclosed places (elevators, airplanes, houses with storm windows, gymnasiums, etc.), it can cause real problems. Your mother-in-law should be reminded again that her perfume is causing headaches and asked to please not use it around you. Depending upon how old

she is and her sense of smell, she may not realize she is using as much as she is. W o m e n ’s Abigail p e r f u m e s men’s Van Buren and a f t e r - s h av e lotions and Dear Abby colognes can also cause problems at the gym. When people who are exercising begin to sweat, the smell can become overpowering and a nuisance to others. Scents that were applied the day before can turn rancid, so a shower before working out would be considerate if this could be you. DEAR ABBY: I have a son, “Billy,” who will be 9 soon. He was conceived through rape by a man who was physically, emotionally and sexually abusive, as well as controlling and manipulative. He threatened to kill me and Billy, but I eventually got free. I have a criminal no-contact order on him, and he has no legal rights to Billy. I have raised my son without any knowledge of his father. I feel it would be cruel to tell him how he came into the world. My mother disagrees. She thinks it will backfire if and when Billy finds out. She points out that Bil-

ly has two half-sisters he doesn’t know about. I don’t like to keep that from him. I need to protect my son, no matter what. But am I doing the right thing? I sometimes question what is in my son’s best interest and that of our relationship. Please give me some advice. -- LIVING IN THE PRESENT DEAR LIVING IN THE PRESENT: I’m surprised your son hasn’t already asked about his father, because surely he must have questions. When Billy asks, he should be told some of the truth in an ageappropriate way. He does not need to know about the rape, but he should know that his father was violent, so for your safety and his, the courts decided Billy’s father should not be in contact with the two of you. Billy should also be told that until he is an adult it will have to remain that way. When he’s older, he can be told that there are half-siblings. (I agree with your mother on that.) While you can’t protect your son forever, you can keep him safe until he’s old enough to process the information. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Horoscopes ARIES (March 21-April 19). Vague hopes without a stepby-step plan will stress you out instead of motivating you. Get specific. Your optimism will return when you make a few small, achievable and measurable goals. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The best talkers don’t always have the best ideas. That’s why you can’t always trust the most charismatic person in the room, even though everyone else is listening to him or her. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You may feel you have to prove yourself in a crowd of strangers. But the key to winning them over is in dropping that feeling to join your own side. What’s in it for you? CANCER (June 22-July 22). The others are not trying to get in the way of your work, and yet their very presence may be keeping you from concentrating. Make a getaway for an hour, and you’ll accomplish what you couldn’t in three.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You like to try things before you make a judgment about them. This can be costly, but not today. Someone will foot the bill for you so you don’t have to assume the risk. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Which achievements give you the most pleasure: the tangible ones that come with certificates, money and material evidence, or the intangible ones that happen in a person’s heart? You’ll enjoy a taste of both today. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Surprise, surprise! You are once again caught between two options and trying to make a decision. You of all people make this look graceful. Your light heart refuses to be weighed down by indecision. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Social skills are important, but they are not the only important skills. Quietly tuning in to your own private muse is also a skill. You’re not being antisocial;

you’re being pro-you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll be entering into new relationships. This is the time to be mindful of pacing. It’s also the moment to really make sure another person has interests that complement your own. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). If you initiate a new deal now, you’ll likely be held up while too many people deliberate on the terms. Consider going paperless for a while. A lot can be said for an old-fashioned handshake arrangement. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It’s as though you dive into a pool of intense, focused energy and go for a nice long swim. When you emerge, instead of being exhausted from the exercise, you’ll feel cleansed. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The machinery of your life is humming along unimpeded. This is a fine opportunity to stockpile the product of your efforts. Save something for a rainy day.

Northeast ready for test on the turf BY BLAKE LONG NEMCC Public Relations

SCOOBA — A Northeast Mississippi Community College football team that has already been well tested in nonconference action comes up against its biggest challenge so far in league play tonight. The Tigers travel to East Mississippi Community College for a matchup of teams that are tied for the lead in the Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges (MACJC) North Division. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. in Scooba. This will be Northeast’s first visit to the new SullivanWindham Field. The Tigers are the last MACJC North Di-

vision team to compete on the all-turf playing surface since it opened in 2011. For the second year in a row, WNAU-AM out of New Albany is the home of Northeast Tiger football on the airwaves. Join Jeremy Kennedy, the Voice of the Tigers, at 6:45 p.m. for the pregame show by setting your radio dial to 1470 AM. Those that cannot pick up the broadcast in their area can still listen to the Tigers by webcast. A link to WNAUAM’s live Internet stream is available on the Northeast athletic website, Fans not in attendance can also keep up to date during

the contest with live in-game updates at the new home of Northeast sports on Twitter by searching and following @ NEMCCTigers. Northeast returned to its winning ways last week with a 27-17 homecoming victory over Coahoma Community College to remain unbeaten in MACJC North Division action. The Lions have dominated their opposition through six games, averaging 65 points per outing while allowing only two touchdowns the entire season. East Mississippi sits at No. 3 in the latest National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) rankings.

The contest will be against the third top-10 ranked opponent for the Tigers this season. After playing both then-No. 9 Copiah-Lincoln Community College and then-No. 10 Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College very close, Northeast enters this matchup with a positive outlook. “It’s been a big week. The guys have really responded and had a good week of practice,” said Tigers head coach Ricky Smither. “It’s going to be important that the kids play a full game. We’re going to have to be productive and on point offensively. DefenPlease see NEMCC | 11

Etling replaces Henry as Purdue’s QB Associated Press

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Danny Etling fit the part Tuesday. Decked out in a three-piece suit with rosy red cheeks and a beaming smile, Purdue’s new starting quarterback nervously answered question after question in the same basement cafeteria where so many other big-name Boilermakers had stood before — Drew Brees, Rosevelt Colvin, Ryan Kerrigan, Matt Light, Kyle Orton and Shaun Phillips. The excitable freshman couldn’t believe he was already here. “It’s something you’ve dreamed of all your life, to be a starting quarterback in the Big Ten,” Etling said Tuesday. “It’s kind of weird to have a dream come true, that’s I guess the best way I can describe it.” Etling hasn’t given much thought to the significance of being the quarterback of the future at this quarterback rich school. He’s more concerned with getting Purdue’s stalled offense jump-started. So Etling spent his time during the bye week studying game tape, quietly calling out plays and trying to get in sync with his receivers before making his first career start Saturday against Nebraska (4-1, 1-0 Big Ten).

Fifth-year senior and team captain Rob Henry (above) has been replaced as Purdue’s quarterback by freshman Danny Etling. Expectations are high for the 19-year-old, who graduated early from Terre Haute South so he could start college in January. When he replaced fifth-year

senior and team captain Rob Henry with 35 seconds left in the first half in the Sept. 28 loss to Northern Illinois, the crowd roared with approval. Nothing has been the same

since then. By the time Etling picked up his cellphone after the postgame news conference, Please see HENRY | 11

Freshmen playing critical roles on SEC defenses Associated Press

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Any teams wanting to capitalize on the suspect Southeastern Conference defenses should get their shots in now. Defenses were hit hard by the NFL draft and have turned to promising freshmen to fill vital roles. Thirteen of the 20 SEC players selected in the first two rounds of this year’s draft were defensive standouts. Now, nearly all the main contenders for the SEC title have at least one defensive starter just out of high school. The youngsters are learning on the job, and the lessons have been difficult. “When guys get thrown into the fire right away, we’re watching them mature right before our eyes, and it’s pain-

ful sometimes,” Georgia coach Mark Richt said. “They just have to keep their faith and keep banging away, so they can keep getting better.” Georgia has had five freshman defenders start games this season and the seventhranked Bulldogs are allowing a league-worst 32.2 points per game. No. 9 Texas A&M has played 17 true freshmen overall, tied with UCLA for the most of any Football Bowl Subdivision school. Georgia and Tennessee have each used 14. Top-ranked Alabama and No. 10 LSU have played 13 apiece. “That’s part of the SEC,” Tennessee coach Butch Jones said. “You’re going to attract the best of the best. We try to recruit individuals who as

true freshmen can play right away and play early.” It’s not unusual for a freshman on offense to spark an SEC’s title run - running back T.J. Yeldon and receiver Amari Cooper were two of the top playmakers on Alabama’s national championship team last year. Defensive players, however, often need more time to develop. “I think it’s tough in this league, but there are many (freshmen) that are doing it right now and some are having great success,” Mississippi coach Hugh Freeze said. “The easiest position (on defense) to teach would be defensive line, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy to play there with some of the offensive linemen we come up against. But that

would be the easiest mentally to learn. And then the hardest is the secondary, unless you’re just going to play some base coverages and not get too far out on things.” Experienced QBs around the conference have taken advantage of inexperienced defenses, but several young defensive backs have been able to hold their own. Florida cornerback Vernon Hargreaves heads the list. He is tied for the SEC lead with three interceptions and hasn’t allowed a touchdown pass for the 17th-ranked Gators. “We’ll play freshmen when they’re ready, and this guy’s ready,” Florida coach Will Muschamp said. “That’s the bottom line.” Please see FRESHMEN | 11

Tigers’ Verlander gets ball for Game 5 again Associated Press

OAKLAND, Calif. — These decisive Game 5s sure are becoming familiar for Justin Verlander. Just like last October in Oakland, the Tigers have been pushed to a winner-take-all fifth game in their AL division series against the Athletics. And Detroit will have Verlander on the mound again Thursday night after he pitched a four-hit shutout in the 2012 clincher. “Well, you don’t pretend. It’s not just another game,” Verlander said after the Tigers evened the series with an 8-6 win Tuesday at Comeria Park. “The season is on the line. It was on the line for us tonight,

too. This whole season, the way we battled and played as a team, comes down to one game, may the best team win. You can’t treat it just like another game. It’s a little bit different. There is more to it.” Verlander dominated in a thrilling pitcher’s duel with rookie Sonny Gray in Game 2 last Saturday, though he had nothing to show for it in a 1-0 loss. Verlander is riding a 22-inning postseason scoreless streak against the A’s, and has 33 strikeouts over the past three playoff matchups with Oakland, 11 in each outing. Not that the A’s are counting. “He’s been beaten before, it

can happen again,” third baseman Josh Donaldson said. Verlander acknowledged it would have been great to pitch the playoff opener, while also noting 21-game winner Max Scherzer more than earned the nod. Now, Verlander gets the ball for his most meaningful start this year — to extend the season Thursday night. With Scherzer pitching in relief Tuesday, Verlander became the automatic Game 5 choice for manager Jim Leyland. “I don’t want to sit here and tell you we planned on doing it, but it was an option,” Leyland said. “It worked out good for us. We took our best shot and we had to because we

were behind the 8-ball a little bit. We took that shot and, hey, both teams are going to have a good pitcher going two days from now.” Both clubs chose to use Wednesday as a full day off without on-field workouts after two long flights in four days. The A’s were yet to announce their Game 5 starter as of early Wednesday afternoon. They were deciding between 18-game winner Bartolo Colon, the loser in the ALDS opener, or Gray. It’s quite a choice for 2012 AL Manager of the Year Bob Melvin, whose team is trying to Please see TIGERS | 11

sively, we’ve got to wrap up and tackle those guys.” East Mississippi’s offense leads the nation with 615 yards per contest and is a threat with the both the pass and run. Starting quarterback Dontreal Pruitt has already thrown for over 2,000 yards and 23 scores. C.J. Bates is Pruitt’s top target with 24 receptions for 378 yards. Bates is also the reigning MACJC Special Teams Player of the Week after returning a punt to the end zone in a win over Holmes Community College. Miguel Graham heads a group of defensive backs at Northeast that aim to shut down Pruitt and the East Mississippi receiving core for the first time this campaign. The Maben native pulled in his second interception of the year against Coahoma. Graham is also tied with South Panola High School graduate Gregdrecus Leland with a team-high four pass breakups. Jamel Dennis continues to climb the charts as one of the best players on defense in the country. The outside linebacker from Oxford is second in the league behind Co-Lin’s Jordan Harris and sixth nationwide with 64 total tackles. “You see it in practice that (Jamel) just loves to play the game,” Smither said. “A kid like that is going to be good.” Jabari Edwards is coming off the best performance of his young career. He goes to East Mississippi after recording seven tackles, five of them unassisted, in the Tigers’ homecoming triumph last Saturday. Jeremy Liggins hopes to light up a Lion defense that allows less than 100 yards per contest in both offensive categories. The Northeast quarterback is completing 50-percent of his passes for 401 yards in three games at the position. Smither has been pleased with the progression Liggins has made since returning to his natural spot on the gridiron from the defensive line. “We put him in a bad situation the last couple of weeks and asked him to make some throws,” he said. “We shouldn’t have done it, but he’s worked on those weaknesses that he’s had hard the last two weeks and has gotten a lot better. “Jeremy is the type of guy that every snap he takes he gets better.” The Lions are led defensively by A.J. Stamps, who has picked off three passes and returned one for a touchdown. Northeast has found success in Scooba, claiming a victory during its last outing in the small Kemper County town 49-42 in 2010. East Mississippi has claimed two straight victories though against the Tigers and also leads the all-time series 34-18.

it was filled with text messages, and now the anonymity of walking around campus peacefully has been replaced by other students asking if he was actually Danny Etling. “I’m like, ‘Yeah,’” Etling said. But the three days between the Northern Illinois game and last Tuesday, when coach Darrell Hazell called each quarterback to his office to explain the decision, were filled with tension and excitement. Etling wasn’t sure what would happen. Hazell didn’t debate it long. “I slept on it, and I had a pretty good idea and I called coach (John) Shoop in and we talked about it,” Hazell said. “I said a few weeks ago, when we go to Danny, if we go to Danny, that when we go, we have to go. “We can’t go back and

forth. I said, ‘When we decide if we ever decide to go with him this year, you’re going to have to go and you’ve got to live with the results that you get. So you’ll have to sleep another four nights and I think that is the best thing for our football team.” The Boilermakers’ offense needed a boost. With Henry running the show, Purdue’s usually highscoring offense sputtered. The Boilermakers (1-4, 0-1) head into Saturday with averages of 17.0 points per game and 3.1 yards per carry. Henry was completing just 53.6 percent of his passes, throwing for less than 200 yards per game with four touchdowns and six interceptions, and only three plays went for more than 40 yards. So when Henry stopped potential scoring drives with interceptions on back-to-back series against Northern Illinois, Hazell made the change.

Etling entered the game with 35 seconds left in the half, completed his first two passes to move the Boilermakers from their own 47 to the Northern Illinois 30 and Paul Griggs kicked a 47-yard field goal to cut the deficit to 27-13. He finished 19 of 39 with 241 yards, two TDs, two interceptions and was sacked three times. But it was enough to convince Hazell things could be different with Etling behind center. “Our guys were running around with a lot of energy the last couple days, and excitement,” Hazell said. “I think what you’re going to see with the quarterback change and you’ll be able to see some of those young wide-outs a little bit more and better.” That’s not the only change Hazell is making. Hazell moved Jordan Roos into the starting spot at right guard, juggled his receiving

depth chart in part because of B.J. Knauf’s two-game suspension and is adjusting the defensive line rotation to try and get more pressure on the quarterback. The changes include using defensive tackle Bruce Gaston more often at end and using freshmen defensive linemen Evan Panfil, Jake Replogle and Ra’Zahn Howard. And Rob Henry is still trying to get acclimated to playing safety, where Hazell said he is making progress but has not yet moved onto the depth chart. Etling, too, is trying to get acclimated to his new role — trying to become the next big thing at the Cradle of Quarterbacks. “I’ve been trying to do it (prepare) pretty much the same,” he said. “I might be doing a little more because now you know you’re playing, so you obsess about it a little more.”

an impact in the front seven. Georgia’s Leonard Floyd has a team-high 10 quarterback hurries and is tied for the team lead with three sacks. Tennessee’s Corey Vereen applied the pressure that led to a game-clinching interception in a recent 31-24 triumph over South Alabama. Texas A&M linebacker Darian Claiborne has topped his team in tackles in two games. Montravius Adams leads Auburn with six hurries, while teammate Carl Lawson produced two sacks Saturday in a 30-22 victory

over Mississippi. “It means a lot,” Lawson said after his big performance, “but there are still a lot of things I can go back and fix.” Indeed, all these freshmen have much to learn. For example, Vereen recorded a sack during Tennessee’s second-half comeback in a 34-31 overtime loss to Georgia last week, then committed a personal foul on the Bulldogs’ game-tying touchdown drive. With so many freshmen, SEC teams are winning with

offense, not defense. Florida and Alabama are the only SEC schools ranked among the top 25 teams in total defense or scoring defense. For everyone else in the conference, they hope their freshmen grow up quickly. “When you learn, you make mistakes,” Richt said. “It’s just the way it is. You hope they can learn and make mistakes while they’re in practice, as they’re getting their chance to start two or three years in, but that’s not the way life goes all the time.”


Other starting cornerbacks in the SEC include LSU’s Tre’Davious White, Alabama’s Eddie Jackson and Tennessee’s Cam Sutton. Alex Sezer started each of Texas A&M’s first two games. Safeties Tray Matthews and Quincy Mauger and cornerbacks Brendan Langley and Shaq Wiggins have started for Georgia. Mississippi’s Tony Conner and Kentucky’s Blake McClain are starters at nickel. Freshmen also are making

everybody. “Going to go out there like we always do,” leadoff hitter and center fielder Coco Crisp said. “He’s a great competitor and we’re a competitive team. We’re going out there to go out and beat him.” Verlander has hardly had the kind of dominant season like he

had the past two years, including 2011 when he won both AL MVP and Cy Young Award honors. Yet that hardly affected Leyland’s decision-making as he insisted Verlander’s 13-12 record was hardly indicative of how well he pitched much of the season aside from a couple of rough stretches.

Prime Time Players CARLOS HYDE, OHIO STATE With the passing attack misfiring, Ohio State turned to Hyde with the game on the line at Northwestern. The senior didn’t disappoint, rushing for 168 yards and three touchdowns on 26 attempts and catching four passes for 38 yards. Hyde scored the game-winning touchdown with just over five minutes to go. MARCUS MARIOTA, OREGON Chip who? The Ducks haven’t missed a beat on offense with Mark Helfrich and Scott Frost calling the plays, largely due to the performance of Mariota. Against Colorado, the sophomore threw for 355 yards and five TDs and rushed for 43 yards and two scores on seven carries. Mariota has not thrown an INT in 202 attempts. JAMEIS WINSTON, FLORIDA STATE Winston is only a freshman, but the Alabama native can safely stake a claim as one of the top quarterbacks in the nation. Winston led the Seminoles to a 63–0 victory over Maryland, completing 23-of-32 passes for 393 yards and five scores. Winston already has three 300-yard passing performances this season. TAJH BOYD, CLEMSON Boyd has been razor-sharp since a sluggish outing against NC State. After throwing for 311 yards and three scores against Wake Forest last week, Boyd torched Syracuse for a schoolrecord 455 yards and five scores in a 49–14 win on Saturday. Four of Boyd’s TD tosses were at least 40 yards, including a 91-yard bomb to Sammy Watkins. TY MONTGOMERY, STANFORD Stanford won a game in which it was outgained by 210 yards thanks to Montgomery’s play on special teams. Montgomery, who has also emerged as a playmaker at wide receiver, returned the opening kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown and a third-quarter kickoff 68 yards to set up what ended up as the game-winning touchdown.

Upset of the Week October usually means the focus in the Hoosier State shifts to basketball, but after a historic win over Penn State, perhaps Indiana’s football program has turned a corner. The Hoosiers used 23 fourth quarter INDIANA 44 points to earn PENN STATE 24 their first win over Penn State in 17 tries. Quarterback Nate Sudfeld threw for 321 yards and two scores, including a highlightreel 36-yard toss to Kofi Hughes in the fourth quarter. The offense also had a solid effort from running back Tevin Coleman (92 yards), while receiver Cody Latimer caught nine passes for 140 yards. Indiana’s defense has been an issue for several seasons, but the Hoosiers held the Nittany Lions to a respectable 4.4 yards per play, recorded a safety and forced two fumbles. After earning the biggest win of his tenure, coach Kevin Wilson can turn his attention to getting Indiana back to a bowl game. With matchups against Minnesota, Illinois and Purdue remaining, the Hoosiers should be able to get six wins this year.

Can Gator D slow down LSU attack? FLORIDA AT LSU

Two of the hottest quarterbacks in the SEC will be on display Saturday at Tiger Stadium. Florida’s Tyler Murphy, a third-year sophomore who had not thrown a pass in college until three weeks ago, has been terrific in relief of injured starter Jeff Driskel. He is completing 72.2 percent of his passes with five touchdowns and only one interception. LSU’s Zach Mettenberger is thriving under new offensive coordinator Cam Cameron, leading the SEC in touchdown passes (15) and yards per attempt (11.1) while ranking third in yards per game (289.7) and fourth in completion percentage (68.2). This week, however, Mettenberger will be facing one of the nation’s elite secondaries. The Gators are allowing a league-low 152.0 passing yards per game, and opposing quarterbacks are averaging only 4.6 yards per attempt, third-lowest in the nation. Florida also excels at stopping the run, allowing a league-low 65.0 yards per game and 2.78 yards per attempt. This will be a huge challenge for the much-improved LSU offense. LSU by 3 OREGON AT WASHINGTON

Washington lost 31–28 at Stanford Saturday night, but the Huskies proved they belonged among the top 15 teams in the nation. Steve Sarkisian’s club, which has wins over Boise State, Illinois and Arizona on its résumé, has tremendous balance on offense and has been outstanding on defense. Stanford managed only 284 yards of offense and converted just 4-of-14 on third down against UW. Now, however, the Huskies take on the nation’s most explosive team (with apologies to Baylor). Oregon has cruised to a 5–0 start by scoring at least 55 points and holding its opponents to no more than 16 points in every game. Sophomore quarterback Marcus Mariota ranks ninth in the nation in total offense (339.2 ypg) despite ranking 75th in total plays. The Ducks have dominated this series of late, winning nine straight by an average of 25.8 points per game. Washington believes it’s ready to make this rivalry competitive again. We’re not so sure. Oregon by 17 NORTHWESTERN AT WISCONSIN

Stock Report Miami isn’t ready to contend for the BCS title, but it’s clear coach Al Golden has the program moving in the right direction. A 45–30 win over Georgia Tech tightened the Canes’ grip on the Coastal, with showdowns looming against Florida State and Virginia Tech in November. Quarterback Stephen Morris and running back Duke Johnson lead an explosive offense, and the defense is significantly better after struggling mightily in 2012. Southern Miss recorded 18 consecutive winning seasons from 19942011, but the Golden Eagles went 0–12 in 2012 and hit rock bottom with a 24–23 loss to FIU on Saturday. This is the same FIU team that lost to Bethune-Cookman earlier this season. Southern Miss could be staring at another winless season in Todd Monken’s first year in Hattiesburg. Remember when Missouri coach Gary Pinkel was on the hot seat? After a 5–0 start, Pinkel has quieted his critics and has the Tigers positioned to return to a bowl in their second year in the SEC. Missouri defeated Vanderbilt 51–28 on Saturday to remain the lone unbeaten in the SEC East. The Tigers have a difficult upcoming slate, but Pinkel’s team is clearly improved after a shaky 2012. Georgia Tech looked poised to take an early commanding lead in the ACC Coastal with a second-half comeback against North Carolina two weeks ago, but Paul Johnson’s team may be out of it after a collapse against Miami. Tech was outscored 38–13 in the final three quarters in the loss to the Hurricanes. With last week’s 17–10 loss to Virginia Tech and 45–30 loss to Miami, the Yellow Jackets are 1–2 in the ACC, losing to two fellow division contenders. In those losses, Georgia Tech has turned the ball over a combined five times. Ball State coach Pete Lembo should field some calls at the end of the season, especially after a 46–27 win over Virginia in Charlottesville. Ball State is off to a 5–1 start and has gone 4–3 against teams from BCS automatic-qualifying conferences under Lembo. This includes a three-game winning streak with wins over Virginia, USF and Indiana (not counting a bowl loss to then-Conference USA member UCF at the end of last season). Ball State’s formula Saturday against the Cavaliers was simple: No penalties and no turnovers. Virginia had 12 penalties for 89 yards and three turnovers.

Tim Clark/Athlon Sports

LSU senior Zach Mettenberger has emerged as one of the top quarterbacks in the nation this season. He will be tested this week by an elite Florida defense in Baton Rouge.

Madison to play arguably the nation’s top two-loss team. The Badgers are 3–2, with losses by two points at Arizona State (in controversial fashion) and by seven points at Ohio State. As usual, Wisconsin is running the ball with tremendous success — and that is not good news for Northwestern. The Wildcats gave up 248 yards on the ground to Ohio State on Saturday night and rank eighth in the Big Ten in rushing defense (144.8 ypg). Northwestern will counter with a twoquarterback platoon that has worked well through the first five games of the season. Trevor Siemian, who leads the league with 10.4 yards per passing attempt, gives the Wildcats a deep threat, while Kain Colter excels as a runner and in the short passing game. The key, however, will be Northwestern’s ability to stop Wisconsin’s rushing attack. Wisconsin by 7 OKLAHOMA VS. TEXAS (DALLAS)

Texas is 2–0 in the Big 12, but the Longhorns do not look like a team capable of winning the league title — Mack Brown’s stated goal for the 2013 season. Oklahoma, on the other hand, has emerged — perhaps with Braden Gall 57-15 Louisville by 13 USC by 7 South Carolina by 3 BYU by 4 Baylor by 10 LSU by 3 Texas A&M by 10 Michigan by 4 Oklahoma by 17 Boise State by 4 Oregon by 10 Wisconsin by 4

Baylor — as the team to beat. The Sooners followed up a 35–21 win at Notre Dame two weeks ago with a 20–17 victory over TCU on Saturday. The defense, an issue in recent seasons, has been dominant. OU gave up only 210 yards in the TCU game and leads the league in total defense (281.6 ypg) and scoring defense (13.0 ppg). Texas has some solid playmakers on offense, but it’s tough to trust Case McCoy at quarterback against this Oklahoma defense. Oklahoma by 10 TEXAS A&M AT OLE MISS

The Rebels have been humbled the past two weeks, losing 25–0 at Alabama and 30–22 at Auburn. The offense, so efficient in the first three weeks of the season, has scored only two touchdowns in the last eight quarters. Bo Wallace, who did not throw an interception in the first two games, was picked off twice on Saturday. Hugh Freeze must get things fixed on offense in a hurry with Texas A&M rolling into town. The Aggies have some issues on defense, but this team has no trouble scoring points. Ole Miss will have to score at least 40 points to win this game. Texas A&M by 6 Rob Doster 60-12 Louisville by 10 Arizona by 2 South Carolina by 6 Georgia Tech by 1 Baylor by 19 LSU by 3 Texas A&M by 7 Michigan by 3 Oklahoma by 17 Boise State by 8 Oregon by 15 Wisconsin by 4

Texas WR Davis issues new apology over cut block Associated Press

AUSTIN, Texas — A day after saying he would “do the same thing again,” Texas wide receiver Mike Davis issued a new apology Tuesday for a cut block against Iowa State defensive back Deon Broomfield that drew a personal foul penalty and a public reprimand of Davis from the Big 12. In a statement issued

by Texas officials, Davis offered a “full apology” for the play and his comments. “Most of all, I would like to apologize to Deon. He’s a great player, and I would like to make sure he knows that my intent was never to hurt him, and that I am not that kind of player,” Davis said. “Again, I am sorry for what happened on the field and everything

that has happened around that. Also, I would like to apologize to Commissioner (Bob) Bowlsby and the Big 12.” Davis’ block came on a Texas scoring play in the Longhorns’ 31-30 victory last week. Davis leaned low to cut block Broomfield at the left knee after a Longhorns running back had scored and the play was over. The block almost im-

mediately was highlighted in replays on and websites as a dirty play. Texas coach Mack Brown said Monday that Davis “was wrong” to throw the block after the whistle, but also noted the play was a “run-pass” option that called for Davis to throw that block if the quarterback had thrown to the receiver to the outside.

Davis said Monday he was glad Broomfield wasn’t hurt, but also suggested the defender wasn’t playing hard. “If we have another runpass situation, I’d do the same thing again,” Davis said. “If the (defender) is loafing, he deserves to be cut.” The Big 12 reviewed the play and could have suspended Davis for this

week’s game against No. 12 Oklahoma in Dallas. Davis has 26 catches for 287 yards and four touchdowns. The league instead issued a public reprimand. “I would like to provide a full retraction of anything I said that wasn’t apologetic for the play last Thursday, and that I completely understand and accept the reprimand by the Big 12,” Davis said.

Sleepwalking through gambling and corruption Runner Runner, R, **1/2, Ben Affleck, Justin Timberlake, Rebecca Shafran, Anthony Mackie. 20th Century Fox. Director Brad Furman. Length 91 minutes. “Runner Runner” does not have very much velocity to share with the audience. The dialogue and actors seem to be sleepwalking through the story. “Runner Runner” refers to a card hand completed or significantly improved by using the last turn of the cards and the river cards-or the community cards while playing poker. Now, the absolute best film about poker is “The Cincinnati Kid” starring Steve McQueen. It is an older movie, but it does hit the target by keeping the attention of the audience right up to the very end. Unfortunately, at that

time I had not viewed “The Cincinnati Kid,” and a college friend deTerry cided to Burns tell me the ending Movie Critic before I could stop him. That did not set well with me. I do not want to know much of the story before I see it. That is why I try not to disclose much about the films when preparing a review. It is best to give only a very small portion regarding the film in order to allow the reader to decide to see it or not see it without giving away the main events. In college I played nickel and dime poker in the dorm. If my parents had found out, it would not have been pleasant.

Iuka man loses bid for conviction petition The Associated Press

JACKSON — The U.S. Supreme Court has declined to hear an appeal from an Iuka man sentenced to life in prison in 1998 after pleading guilty to capital rape of a child. Merlin Hill had sought approval for a postconviction appeal of his conviction and sentence. The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals denied Hill’s petition in January. The Supreme Court upheld that ruling with-

out comment Monday. Hill also argued the courts had ignored the results of a psychiatric evaluation. Capital rape involves sexual relations with a child under the age of 14. Court records show Hill had moved to the Tishomingo County area from Michigan to work on the NASA space project. Prosecutors said the sexual attacks occurred over a 3- to 4-year period.

“Runner Runner” is about online poker where a Princeton student, Richie Furst (Justin Timberlake) is attending school to obtain a masters degree while playing poker to pay his way through school. Furst loses all of his tuition money. He is smart enough to know he has been cheated. However, the president of the school is not happy. I remember having to talk with an employee at college who was not happy with me. The talk made an impression on me. However, it does not seem to work with Furst. He immediately travels to Costa Rica where the online poker games are located in order to get his money back. There he meets the man in charge of the online gambling, Ivan Block (Ben Affleck). Block talks Furst into working for him, and the

Recent Reviews Runner, Runner **1⁄2 Rush, R, *****plus Prisoners, R, ****1⁄2 The Family, R, **1⁄2 We’re the Millers, R, *** entire situation becomes dangerous and deadly. Rebecca Shafran (Gemna Arterton) works for Block, and Furst is interested in getting to know her better. However, Block seems to like Shafran also. Ah – “The Eternal Triangle” of love. Remember what happened to Tom Dooley as it was told in the song by The Kingston Trio. When it comes to love and money, we all tend to chase it. The temptation of big time money and a beautiful lady takes Furst

down the road of danger and as the song by the Greg Kihn Band goes Our love’s in jeopardy. To know for sure if love’s in jeopardy, the reader will have to see the movie. The audience meets a lot of individuals taking bribes in the Costa Rica gambling area. From police officers to some very evil gangsters, kickbacks are taking place along with individuals getting a little angry if they do not get their payoffs. An American law officer, Agent Shavers (Anthony Mackie), wants Furst to spy on the gambling business and find a way to trap Block. Furst does not seem to like that idea, and Agent Shavers uses some very tough ideas to try and persuade him. Will he be swayed? Many of the scenes are short and not very inter-

esting. The movie does not show the audience much about the game of poker or in depth information about the illegal money being shared. Basically, it just uses dull dialogue to bring the point home to the audience. We have choices in movies at the theaters, so we go to one movie and wished we had gone to the other one. The movie never breaks out of mediocre entertainment dialogue. (Terry Burns is technology coordinator for the McNairy County School System.

Search for flute gives mother a scare BY JIMMY REED Guest Columnist

Even if the hospital is a short distance away, city mothers expecting to give birth at any time may feel a little anxious. When Mama was pregnant with me, her first child, she was more than just a little anxious: The hospital was half a county away. Dad’s farm, known as Bamboo, couldn’t have been any farther out in the Mississippi Delta boondocks. Bamboo’s crows could reach civilization after a fifteen-mile flight; its people had to travel twice that far, over winding, gravel roads. Mama was Italian, and therefore superstitious, and to her dying day blamed herself for the fact that I was the most accident prone of her six head

Dad’s eyes were locked on the road, and he raced on, never realizing that his poor wife fainted because Junior had been ejected! of kids. When the time came to bring me into the world, it was not only a Friday, but also the thirteenth day of the month! Poor woman … tried to hold out until the fourteenth, but an hour before midnight, she was cuddling Jimmy Reed, Jr., a purplish, screaming baby with a face only a mother could love. The flute fiasco gave credence to Mama’s superstition about Friday the thirteenth. For my sixth birthday, she gave me the little musical instrument. I loved it, and traipsed around the house for hours, tooting happily. One day, she heard the flute’s tooting stop abruptly. Then her brat child ran into the kitchen with the flute lodged in his throat. He had tripped and fallen on it! Mama dashed outside, forgetting English,

screaming in Italian to one of Dad’s employees. “Newman, go find Mr. Jimmy — we’ve got to get Junior to the hospital quick!” The only part of her shouting that he understood was Dad’s name, but that was enough. Off he fled. Mama put me in the back seat of the family’s old Packard, the kind with the seats so high that folks in front had to rise up to look in the back. Dad clutched, shifted and accelerated, flinging gravel as he slued around curves. Mama looked over the seat constantly, checking on Junior. Then she noticed one of the back doors was ajar. Knowing her husband wouldn’t stop, she asked the boy to close it. About that time, Dad negotiated a particularly sharp curve, and Mama latched on for dear life. The curve behind them,

she raised up to see if Junior had closed the door. Instantly, she shrieked and collapsed, out cold, beside her husband. Dad’s eyes were locked on the road, and he raced on, never realizing that his poor wife fainted because Junior had been ejected! Dad skidded to a stop at the hospital, jumped out, opened the back door to get his son, and stared unbelievingly at an empty seat. Then Mama woke up. The boy had to be somewhere past that bad curve. Mama drove slowly, sobbing and praying, training the headlights on the tall grass at the road’s edge. Crouched on the hood, Dad called, “Junior, Junior, where are you, boy?” Then he saw him, crawling along … looking for his flute.
