Tuesday means decision time 3 initiatives are on ballot Clerk predicts 10,000 turnout BY JEBB JOHNSTON firstname.lastname@example.org
A “yes” or “no” response to three questions on Tuesday’s ballot will shape the outcome for proposed state constitutional amendments. The initiatives dealing with personhood, voter identification and eminent domain have gained a little more attention in the closing stretch leading up to the general election. Circuit Clerk Joe Caldwell said the three items will be found toward the end of Tuesday’s ballot. “I’m hearing some folks that are really torn between which way they’ll vote,” he said. But, at the same time, he has not found the initiatives to be a big focus
of election talk. The “personhood” initiative has gained the most attention, with comments from Gov. Haley Barbour keeping the issue in the news this week. Initiative 26 is worded as follows: “Should the term ‘person’ be defined to include every human being from the moment of fertilization, cloning, or the equivalent thereof?” Barbour ultimately voted in favor of the initiative by absentee ballot, the Associated Press reported. In pro and con information compiled by the secretary of state’s office, amendment supporter Brad Prewitt argues that each human being has an unalienable right to life from its biological beginning until death, while
public health advocate Lynn Evans, arguing against the amendment, says it will jeopardize in vitro fertilization, treatment of ectopic pregnancies and stem cell research. Initiative 27 appears on the ballot as follows: “Should the Mississippi Constitution be amended to require a person to submit government issued photo identification in order to vote?” Initiative sponsor Joey Fillingane argues, “The right to vote is too important to allow dishonest people to steal elections by voting in the name of other people, often times in the name of dead people or folks who are out of state on election day.”
The Alcorn County Courthouse was busy with election-eve preparations Saturday morning. At the circuit clerk’s office, residents cast a steady stream of votes as the office offered a last shot at absentee voting. Deputy Clerk Crystal Starling said the office had seen a busy morning, and the total number of absentee ballots cast for Tuesday’s general election was up to around 730 by late morning. Election commissioners finished packing up the voting machines, poll books and other materials, which are sitting ready for transport to the

All American Diner
Couple reopens Holt’s to keep tradition alive BY ANGELA STOREY firstname.lastname@example.org
The All American Diner is just as its name implies where all American style food is offered in a familyfriendly atmosphere. The owners are Trey and Sheena Stewart. Its location at 2196 Highway 72 East in Corinth will be familiar to many Corinthians as the former Holt’s Restaurant run by a former Corinth mayor, Jack Holt, and part of the Corinth scene for decades. “Holt’s Restaurant was in business 40 years ... it’s been something known in Corinth forever,” says Corinth native Sheena Stewart. After Holt’s death last year, his daughter, Jill Mauney, took over but later sold it because of health reasons, she said. Holt’s Restaurant closed on March 6, 2011, which happened to be Sheena’s birthday. “I took it as a sign it was supposed to be mine,” she said. The Stewarts opened The All American Diner on Sept. 9, 2011, and look forward to continuing the tradition of serving great food in the popular location. A 1950s theme is found in the newly remodeled diner with its black and white checkered floor and black and red seating at the tables and booths. Photographs of Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth, older model cars, along with patriotic photos of Uncle Sam, Rosie the Riveter and the Twin Towers line the bright red walls.

Kossuth High School had a two groups of students compete at the annual FFA National Convention in Indianapolis, Ind. last month. Kossuth was ranked in the top 50 among the more than 500 schools that participated in the convention and individual students brought home bronze and silver awards. Biggersville High School also had a group travel to the convention which saw the team garner bronze honors for their work. Students earn their spots in competition at the national convention through success at the state level convention Kossuth High School’s student’s competed in the categories of livestock judging and horse judging.

During the week of Thanksgiving and Christmas, customers can look forward to special holiday meals with either ham or turkey, dressing, cranberry sauce and a casserole. And on Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving typically known as the biggest shopping day of the holiday season, the All American Diner will open early at 3 a.m. just to accommodate the rush of shoppers in the Crossroads area. “We will be selling a bacon or sausage and biscuit with a small coffee for $1.99,” she said.

Willie Pearl Gann Hight, age 93, went to be with her Lord on Saturday, Nov. 5, 2011. She was born in Corinth on May 20, 1918. In her younger years she worked at Weaver Pants Factory and with her husband operated a grocery store for many years on Proper Street in Corinth. She was a true family matriarch and instilled in her family a love for music and singing. She loved gospel music and sang in a family quartet, in her church choir, and at other area churches for many years. She taught Sunday School and Bible classes and was a lady who knew the power of prayer. She loved the Lord and told everyone wherever she went about His goodness. Her favorite scripture, found in II Chronicles 7:14,says, “If my people,which are called by my Hight name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways ,then will I hear from heaven,and will forgive their sin,and will heal their land.” She is survived by her husband of 78 years, Harley, and by five children, Marvin Hight and wife Shirley of Corinth; Shirley Craine and husband Glynn of Fort Smith, Ark., Wayne Hight and wife Nancy of Corinth, Jerry Hight and wife Melba of Michie, Tenn., and Suzette Pruitt and husband Chris of Corinth. She is survived by 14 grandchildren, the Rev. Nelson Hight and wife Pam of Corinth, Melanie Brown and husband Carroll of Hattiesburg, David Craine and wife Cathy, Steve Craine and wife, Tina, Joe Craine and wife, Stacie, Beth Blythe and husband Ross, all of Fort Smith, Ark., Kim Doles and husband John of Murfreesboro, Tenn., Brad Hight of Corinth, Trudy Littlejohn and husband Tony of Michie, Tenn., Todd Hight and wife Angie of Corinth, Ted Hight and wife Tammye of Corinth, Sabrina Nunley and husband Jesse of Muscle Shoals, Ala., Will Pruitt and fi-
Sheena Stewart Co-owner, All American Diner people will really enjoy the food and service. It’s a happy, friendly atmosphere,” she says. The All American Diner also does large group orders and catered events. The couple have both worked for large corporate companies. They wanted to establish a home-owned business and provide a work environment where family is put first. There are six employees, which includes the owners. “We want to have a place of business where employees come in and we’ll do everything we can to take care of them. We want them to know they aren’t just a number. They mean something to us,” she said. The owners both have a background in the restaurant business. Sheena has worked in restaurants a number of years, while Trey, a native of Fayetteville, Tenn., most recently worked at Carquest in Florence, Ala., where he commuted dai-
ly from Corinth. They decided they didn’t spend enough time together ... so now they have the opportunity to work together in the diner. The couple has two daughters, Sydney, 6; and Madison, 2. “Our children love it up here. Sydney enjoys eating the chicken strips and Madison likes the sausage ... which she takes straight off the biscuit and eats,” Stewart said. The couple’s goal is to provide the best possible service and good quality food at a reasonable price, and at the same time support their community. “We care about our community. We want to make a difference in the community and to give back to it in some way,” she said. (The diner is open seven days a week, Monday-Saturday from 5 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Sunday, 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. The phone number is 662286-6778.)
INITIATIVES: Eminent domain amendment would bar giving private property to developer for decade CONTINUED FROM 1A
Opponent Sue Harmon argues that it amounts to a new poll tax and that instances of voter impersonation are few. The eminent domain amendment, initiative 31, appears in this form on the ballot: “Should government be prohibited from taking private property by eminent domain and then transferring it to other persons?” The amendment would bar the government from taking private property and turning it over to any private
developer for a period of 10 years. Sponsor David Waide argues that governments have recently taken private property and given it to private developers for their own personal gain. Economic developer Leland Speed argues the amendment “will cripple Mississippi’s ability to attract good-
paying jobs” and “could hinder private landowners’ ability to sell their land for industrial development.”

Daley: Uncivil politics makes reflection on all BY ROGER SIMON When Bill Daley took over as White House chief of staff in mid-January, the reviews were good. Articles said that he was experienced, serious and wise to the ways of Washington. “I said to my wife when we got here -- and we had great press when we got here -- I said: ‘Six months, that’s about how long, then they’ll kick the s--- out of us.’ So I got nine months out of it. That’s pretty good,” Daley told me with a laugh. We were sitting in his West Wing office, he in an armchair and me on a couch. My digital recorder sat between us on a low coffee table. “This is on the record?” Daley asked. Yes, I said, but if you want to go off the record, just say so, and I won’t use that part. In the hour or so that followed, Daley never went off the record. He spoke frankly about how difficult the first three years of the Obama administration had been and what President Barack Obama intended to do in the future. The day that my column appeared, it was the subject of the first, second and fourth questions by members of the White House press corps at the daily briefing. (The third question was about the Occupy Wall Street movement.) When I was invited on CNN’s “John King, USA” to talk about my column that day, King’s first question was whether Daley and I had been drinking. King was joking, and I laughed, but I also assured him (truthfully) that we had not been. But I took the question as a compliment. There were other shows and stories and blogs and tweets. Which raises the same question after any White House interview that makes a splash: Who was using whom? Had I really gotten Daley, a political veteran, to say anything he had not intended to say? Or had Daley used me, a press veteran, to convey White House talking points? My answer is simple: Don’t know, don’t care. You can drive yourself crazy asking yourself that one. The column met my ultimate test, the test a column has to pass before I hit the send button: I liked it. I thought it was good; I thought it was fair; I thought it conveyed something. Mike McCurry, Bill Clinton’s very able press secretary, once told me: “The modern presidency is defined by the manipulation of the news flow 24 hours a day.” And I always keep that in mind. But the manipulation of that news flow has gotten more and more difficult over the years. In my interview with Daley, I asked him: How much more difficult does the media make your job? “What’s the media today?” Daley replied. “Everybody’s got a camera, everybody’s got a website. Everybody whose got a
telephone can be a media person. And how people get their information and communicate is very different. “It’s very much more difficult, I believe, today, to govern in this very diffuse way in which people get and give information. There isn’t anything we do here (in the White House) that gets to the American people that isn’t filtered.” I had first heard the term “filtered” applied to the media by the late Lee Atwater, who was George H.W. Bush’s campaign manager in 1988. Atwater may not have invented, but he perfected, what is today nearly universal for political operations: formulating a “message of the day,” the talking points that all members of the operation push to the media. Either you control that message, or the media pick their own message. And you don’t want the media picking their own message. “It’s not like a campaign where you buy ads,” Daley said to me about the downside of White House incumbency. “So everything you do is filtered. There’s a thousand ways people get that information, but every piece of it is filtered maybe multiple times, and it makes it very hard to get into the consciousness of the American people.” So the media is a filter, not a neutral conveyor of news? I asked. “The fragmentation of the media over the last 25 years is a big change,” Daley said. “There are liberal radio stations, TV stations, magazines. You’ve got conservative TV, radio, etc. You don’t need to go near what you don’t want to believe in today.” This may be a return to earlier centuries, when nearly all the press in America was partisan. But that is not necessarily a good thing. Today, many believe there is too much partisanship. “The politics reflects the society,” Daley said. “A lot of people say: ‘Oh, politics is so uncivil. Isn’t that terrible? Why can’t they get along? Gee, I’ve never seen anything like this.’ Well, it should be better, but maybe it’s more reflective of society.” Daley talked about the popularity of reality TV, where “everybody yells at each other, they throw things at each other, they’re obnoxious to each other, they swear at each other.” “And watch the cable (news) shows,” he said. “What gets (ratings)? The angry, the nasty, the insulting, the edge thing. So maybe politics is just more reflective of society than we want to admit.” He paused. “We want to think politics should be better,” he said. “But maybe it is more reflective of us. And that may be what we don’t like to see.” (Roger Simon is chief political columnist of politico.com, an award-winning journalist and a New York Times best selling author.)

Initiatives may bring consequences STARKVILLE — For months, political operatives and journalists alike thought the state’s November general election ballot would be advantageous for conservatives in general and the Mississippi GOP in particular, but the three ballot initiatives that confront state voters have proven to be more complex than that. Republicans worked hard for two decades to get the voter ID issue on the ballot for the general election. The initiative would require voters to submit a photo ID in order to vote in a manner that already has survived U.S. Supreme Court scrutiny in 2008 in an appeal from a similar law in Indiana. Initiative No. 27, the voter ID amendment, would implement virtually the mirror image of the Indiana law in Mississippi. The ballot wording is straightforward: “Should the Mississippi Constitution be amended to require a person to submit gov-
ernment issued photo identification in order to vote?” Voter ID will pass by a substantial margin, but it is likewise motivating Demto Sid ocrats turn out Salter to vote Columnist against it as well as it turns out GOP voters who favor it. Initiative No. 26, the so-called “personhood” initiative redefines the word “person” in the state constitution to include fertilized human eggs and undeveloped embryos. The ballot wording is as follows: “Should the term ‘person’ be defined to include every human being from the moment of fertilization, cloning or the equivalent thereof? Voters will be asked to weigh in with a “yes” or “no” vote. As with most issues related to abortion, con-
servatives believed there would be virtually uncontested passage of the “personhood” amendment in Mississippi. But as evidenced by Gov. Haley Barbour’s publicly expressed misgivings about the possible unintended policy consequences of the personhood amendment, it appears the amendment has had unintended political consequences as well. Significant opposition to the amendment appears to have developed. While most observers look for the amendment to pass, it’s clear that Initiative 26 opposition votes may well impact some key legislative races in favor of Democrats. Conservative voters who oppose abortion are expressing doubt about the wording of the proposed amendment. Privately, some Democratic legislators are praising the initiative as providing a “get out the vote” issue for liberal voters. Barbour’s misgivings (which preceded his “yes” vote on the issue,
he said) were likely not misplaced. Adoption of the “personhood” initiative will almost certainly set off a constitutional challenge because of the Roe v. Wade decision, but proponents point to that decision as the genesis of the “personhood” movement. The third ballot initiative in Mississippi on the November general election ballot is Initiative No. 31, the eminent domain initiative. The ballot wording is: “Should government be prohibited from taking private property by eminent domain and then transferring it to other persons?” Again, voters will be asked to weigh in with a “yes” or “no” vote. Barbour opposes this initiative, but it will linger as one issue in which he was out of sync with the majority of Mississippi voters who favor putting a belt and suspenders – as the late Acadian comic Justin Wilson used to say - on the state’s eminent domain laws.
Media wolf pack judges Cain When it comes to sex, the media apply different standards to Republicans and Democrats. Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton allegedly trolled for women, using state troopers as his procurers. As president, Clinton engaged in oral sex with Monica Lewinsky in the Oval Office. He lied about it under oath and was impeached, though later acquitted by the U.S. Senate. Other sexual accusations tainted Clinton, including one that he raped one Juanita Broaddrick. That “everybody lies about sex” and “it was just sex” and didn’t affect his public responsibilities, were just two of the exculpatory statements from Clinton’s Democratic defenders. James Carville slimed Paula Jones, one of Clinton’s accusers, by saying you never know what you’ll find “when you drag a hundred-dollar bill through a trailer park.” Many other Democrats in modern times have been caught with their pants down -- JFK, John Edwards. Some paid a political price. Most did not because their policies were favored by the liberal media, which gave them cover. Now it is Herman Cain’s turn and the rules have suddenly changed. Cain

stands accused of sexually harassing two women more than a decade ago when he headed the National Restaurant Association. Cal Many in Thomas the media wolf Columnist pack have already judged him guilty because he updated his initial statement denying the allegations. And yet The Washington Post, in association with Politico.com -- which broke the “story” -- routinely updates its online pages when new information comes to light. Is Cain, a relative media novice, expected to have instant and total recall of events that may or may not have happened more than 10 years ago? The way this works is, if you can’t give the media immediate and detailed answers to their questions, they “raise new questions” and then when you do provide them additional information they say you should have provided it before and must be covering something up, prompting even more questions. One cannot say what,
if any, political motives the anonymous female accusers might have, or even if they helped bring these charges to Politico. So much of this is subjective. What is known is that a charge of sexual harassment is not proof that sexual harassment occurred. This story also has a noxious odor of racism about it. Historically, perhaps the worst stereotype directed at African-American men is that they are oversexed and constantly on the prowl for female conquests. Cain’s candidacy has unnerved the Washington political establishment. I have just finished his book “This is Herman Cain!: My Journey to the White House.” In it, I learned that Cain is a self-made man who achieved success without government and without self-loathing. He is the enemy of big government, and of Democrats’ “can’t do” condescending attitude toward minorities. Cain exudes a positive and optimistic spirit. Were Cain to become president, this “CEO of self” would threaten the political and economic prison liberal Democrats have built to keep disenfranchised minorities down and voting for Democrats for fear their

government programs will end. Cain has a better way and he writes about it in his inspiring personal story, which is the embodiment of the American Dream. This is why Cain is being excoriated by the liberal left. Even some in the Republican establishment wish he would just go away. There will be more on this as reporters and tabloids throw money at Cain’s accusers, seeking to get them to talk in violation of their termination agreements. If you’re wondering why more qualified people don’t run for office, consider what is being done to Herman Cain. People don’t want every mistake or bad decision they’ve made trumpeted from the rooftops and so they avoid politics to the nation’s detriment. Cain may ultimately triumph over these allegations. Last Monday Cain recorded his biggest fundraising day ever, netting $400,000. Still, the best defense is a good offense and what would be best for Cain is for him to get all the facts out, immediately, before his enemies do it for him.

TURNOUT: Voters will usher in some big changes with the election of new governor, lieutenant governor CONTINUED FROM 1A
16 county precincts. Commissioner John Peebles is looking for a turnout around 8,000, while Circuit Clerk Joe Caldwell is predicting 10,000. Peebles said larger precincts such as Five Points and Kossuth will have 10 voting machines, which he said should keep the lines moving. “Unlike the primaries, there will be just one sign-in table,” he said, since no party declaration is required. About 150 poll workers will help to hold the election at the precincts. Sample ballots will be available for review prior to voting. Voters will usher in some big changes with the election of a new governor and lieutenant governor on the state level. Locally, a couple of new legislators will be chosen, and Peebles said that seems to be driving a lot of the interest in Tuesday’s election. The county
level is assured of new faces in three supervisor posts, superintendent of education, tax collector, constable post 1 and coroner. Eleven of the 17 county posts have contested races. The primary winners for sheriff, chancery clerk, circuit clerk, tax assessor, county attorney and fifth district supervisor are unopposed on Tuesday’s ballot. On the ballot, the state races are listed first, followed by the legislative posts, county offices and ballot initiatives. Contested races on the ballot:

Cain accuser sticks to harassment allegation Associated Press
WASHINGTON — A lawyer for one of Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain’s accusers declared Friday that she had alleged “several incidents of sexual harassment” in a complaint filed more than a decade ago.

live the specifics” of the incidents in a public forum. Cain has denied ever sexually harassing anyone and is trying to overcome the controversy and resume normal campaign activities. In a statement late in the day, the restaurant association said Cain had disputed the woman’s allegations at the time she made them more than a decade ago. He was CEO of the organization at the time. Bennett’s comments to reporters outside his law office came at a time Cain was making a concerted effort to show he would no longer allow the controversy to dominate his unlikely challenge for the GOP presidential nomination. Cain drew cheers of support Friday from conservative activists as he delivered a speech focused on the U.S. economy. He is trying to convert his meteoric rise in opinion polls into a campaign organization robust enough to compete with Mitt Romney, Rick Perry and other rivals in early primary and caucus states. In an appearance before the Americans For Prosperity Foundation, the career businessman pitched his trademark 9-99 economic program and referred only elliptically to the controversy that has overshadowed his campaign in recent days. “I’ve been in Washington all week, and I’ve attracted a little bit of attention,” he said to knowing laughter from his audience.

VICKSBURG — About 100 people were in line when the doors opened at the Vicksburg WIN Job Center, where applications were taken from those interested in 24 job openings at Tyson Foods’ plant in Warren County. But 90 minutes later, some 900 names of applicants had been written on lists circulating among the job-seekers. Office manager Timothy Crudup told The Vicksburg Post (http://bit.ly/syqIFL) that Friday’s crowd far exceeded the usual number of job candidates seen at the facility, and he said it’s a sign of a bleak local jobs market. “I’ve been here 11 years, and yeah, it’s more than last year, too,” he said. Unemployment in Warren County was 11.7 percent in September, up from 11 percent in August. Mississippi’s rate was 10.6 percent for the month, up half a percent. Figures for October have not been released. The company was looking to fill manual labor and support positions that pay $8.60 an hour and involve straightening prod-
ucts on conveyor belts and handling 10- to 40-pound product cases at the plant. U.S. minimum wage is
$7.25 an hour. The plant currently employs about 500. Crudup said the positions
were advertised only at the plant. None was posted in the employment office or online.

Bulldogs Ole Miss remains winless in SEC run over Skyhawks The Associated Press
STARKVILLE, Miss. — Vick Ballard rushed for 102 yards and two touchdowns to lead Mississippi State to a 55-17 victory over Tennessee-Martin Saturday night. The Bulldogs (5-4) posted 570 yards of total offense in the game and averaged 8.3 yards per play. The Skyhawks (5-4) racked up 454 offensive yards, but struggled on third down. In the first quarter Mississippi State marched 80 yards in 13 plays and Ballard scampered in for a 5-yard touchdown, the Bulldogs’ first on an opening drive this season. Jonathan Banks returned a Tennessee-Martin punt 65 yards for a touchdown on the next possession. Dueling quarterbacks Tyler Russell and Chris Relf each threw a touchdown passes for the Bulldogs in the first half, and Mississippi State led 28-3 at the break. Relf finished 5 of 6 for 61 yards and two touchdowns for the Bulldogs. Kenny Jones scored both Tennessee-Martin touchdowns, one rushing and one receiving.
LEXINGTON, Ky. — Maxwell Smith threw for 283 yards and the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter as Kentucky beat Mississippi 30-13 on Saturday for the Wildcats’ first Southeastern Conference win in nearly a year. Smith, a freshman, was forced to start because of an injury Morgan Newton sustained last Saturday against Mississippi State, and he was steady
in his first career start. He had 128 yards passing at halftime, but Kentucky couldn’t quite reach the red zone. The Wildcats had four drives in the first half that ended between the Ole Miss 30-yard line and the 50; one ended in a 48-yard field goal, one ended in a missed field goal and two ended in punts. But Kentucky offensive coordinator Randy Sanders opened up the playbook in the
second half to the deep passes. Smith’s 38-yard touchdown pass to La’Rod King gave the Wildcats (4-5, 1-4) a 16-13 lead with 12:22 left. That pass marked the latest Kentucky had held a lead in any SEC game since a 38-20 win over Vanderbilt on Nov. 13, 2010. After forcing the Rebels (27, 0-6) into two punts, Smith put the game out of reach with a 56-yard pass to King that
set up an 8-yard touchdown throw to Gene McCaskill. Ole Miss held an early 6-0 lead after getting into the red zone twice but coming away with field goals both times. The Rebels finished with 195 rushing yards but were consistently pinned back in their own territory by Kentucky punter Ryan Tydlacka. CoShik Williams had 111 yards rushing and two touchdowns for the Wildcats.

Gulf Coast clips NEMCC in OT BY MICHAEL H. MILLER Special to the Daily Corinthian
PERKINSTON — Northeast carried the South Division champion to the limit before falling to Gulf Coast in overtime during the semifinals of the Mississippi Association of Community/Junior Colleges (MACJC) state football playoffs. Northeast (6-4, 4-2 in the North Division) entered the playoffs as the second seed from the North Division and pushed South Division champion Gulf Coast to overtime before ultimately falling 20-17 on a 40-yard field goal by Taylor Pontius on fourth-and-eight. Both teams battled to a 17-all tie in regulation before entering the extra session. Northeast saw its hopes of a prolonged overtime disappear when Gulf Coast was able to come away with a fumble on the Tigers first play in the extra frame. Northeast’s defense held strong and forced the Gulf Coast offense into a
fourth-and-eight situation from the 23yard line and Pontius was true on the field goal attempt sending the Bulldogs to their fifth straight MACJC state championship game. Northeast held the lead at half 10-7 thanks to a 50-yard field goal by Taylor Earhart (Olive Branch) and then battled back from a 14-10 deficit to take a 17-14 lead on the Bulldogs before Gulf Coast could respond. Former University of Mississippi quarterback Raymond Cotton put the Bulldogs up 14-10 when Cotton found Javon Bell on a 20-yard strike on Gulf Coast’s second possession of the third quarter with 11:41 showing a. Northeast would not go quietly and former Corinth High School signal caller Parks Frazier gave the Tigers the lead on Northeast’s next possession when the Tiger freshman found Tres’ Houston (Atlanta) on a 38-yard scoring pass along
the visitor’s sideline. Houston broke through a hold by linebacker Chris Payne and battled his way passed a pair of Bulldog defenders in finding his route to the end zone. Earhart, who cleared his 50-yarder with a foot to spare with eight seconds to go in the first half, got a friendly bounce on the extra point attempt after the try was tipped giving the visitors a 17-14 advantage. Northeast would hold the edge over Mississippi Gulf Coast until the 12:22 mark of the fourth quarter when Pontius converted on a 25-yard try after Gulf Coast coach Steve Campbell decided to go for the field goal instead of a first down on fourth-and-one from the Tiger 8. Mississippi Gulf Coast thwarted a Tiger scoring effort with 9:09 to go when the Bulldogs stepped in front of J.R. JenPlease see NEMCC | 9A

Tiger sophomore Ryan Richardson (Ripley) returned the favor when he came away with an interception with 6:27 left in the game ending Gulf Coast’s ensuing drive. Northeast and Gulf Coast would share punts on the final four drives of the game before setting up overtime. Earlier in the contest, Gulf Coast took an early lead when Clint Hatten found Bell on a 15-yard strike with 8:47 left in the first. Northeast pieced together a nine-play, 90-yard drive that spanned the latter part of the first and first part of the second quarter in knotting the game at 7-all. Following a 66-yard pass from Jennings to Houston, Northeast found itself with first-and-goal from 10 with just over 12 minutes remaining in the first half. Northeast would force the ball to the one before deciding to go for the touchdown over the field goal during a timeout with 11:25 to go in the second quarter. Jamarcus Goodloe (Leighton, Ala.) found paydirt with 11:18 to go and following Earhart’s extra point, the game would remain tied until Earhart booted his 50-yarder through with eight seconds remaining in the half.

GATORS: Demps run ends comeback CONTINUED FROM 8A
terback John Brantley, scored on a 5-yard run in the second quarter and saved his best play for last. He made safety Kenny Ladler miss in the open field on a third-and-1 play and went the distance for the winning score. “Jeff’s an outstanding player,” Gators coach Will Muschamp said. “He’s been a guy that every time he’s been healthy this year for us he’s been very productive.” His run pretty much ended Vanderbilt’s comeback. Florida (5-4, 3-4 Southeastern Conference) led 17-0 at halftime and could have been up more had it not been for a missed field goal and a fumble at the goal line. But the Commodores (4-5, 1-5) scored on consecutive drives in the second half, cutting the lead to 20-14, and had a chance to move ahead.
Murray leads Georgia past New Mexico BY GEORGE HENRY The Associated Press
ATHENS, Ga. — Even without his top three tailbacks, Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray still had plenty of weapons to help the Bulldogs score. “We’ve been doing that all year,” he said. “Our coaches are doing a great job of spreading the ball around and making sure defenses stay fair and conscious that anybody can catch the ball at any given time.” Murray threw five second-quarter touchdown passes, former walk-on receiver Brandon Harton ran for 98 yards and No. 18 Georgia won its seventh straight game by cruising past New Mexico State 63-16 on Saturday. The Bulldogs (7-2) turned to Harton this week after Isaiah Crowell and Carlton Thomas

were suspended one game for failing a drug test. Georgia was also without top reserve tailback Richard Samuel, who will miss the next month after undergoing ankle surgery. But with Murray running the offense, Georgia had little reason for concern against New Mexico State (3-6). Murray, who played only the first half, completed 18 of 23 passes for 238 yards, five TDs and no interceptions. The Bulldogs hadn’t scored 63 points since beating Northeast Louisiana in 1994, seven seasons before Mark Richt’s first year as head coach. Georgia’s 627 yards of total offense was its most since the ’93 game against Southern Mississippi. Nine Bulldogs scored a touchdown.
“It’s gratifying to see that many guys who don’t normally have an opportunity to get in the game,” Richt said. “We got to spread it around, so some of them scored for the first time in their career, and that had to be a lot of fun for them.” Coming off a 24-20 win over Florida, the Bulldogs used the game as a tuneup for next week’s home matchup with Southeastern Conference rival Auburn. After facing the Tigers next Saturday, Georgia will close the regular season by hosting Kentucky on Nov. 19 and visiting Georgia Tech on Nov. 26. Victories over Auburn and Kentucky, combined with a conference loss by South Carolina, would give Georgia the SEC East title. The 10th-ranked
Gamecocks were visiting No. 8 Arkansas Saturday night. “They did what I asked them to do, what our coaches asked them to do,” Richt said. “And now we get an opportunity to relax a little bit, enjoy the rest of the day and watch the big ballgame tonight and hope Arkansas wins.” Harton had not taken a snap since the Bulldogs’ blowout win over Coastal Carolina on Sept. 17. He lost a fumble on his first carry, a 9-yard run to the Aggies’ 3, before redeeming himself with a 4-yard TD run to make it 14-3 early in the second. Cornerback Branden Smith, who occasionally plays offense, started at tailback and made it 7-0 with a 56-yard touchdown run midway through the first quarter.

Files show convicted arms dealer Bout’s Libyan ties BY STEPHEN BRAUN Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Records found in Moammar Gadhafi’s former intelligence headquarters show that British officials apparently warned the Libyan government in 2003 about its dealings with Viktor Bout, the Russian arms dealer just convicted on federal conspiracy charges. The documents, which indicate Bout was trying to expand his operations in Libya, add fresh intrigue to questions about whether he played a role in Gadhafi’s rush to bolster weapons caches in the years before the recent uprising that drove him from power. American officials and allied governments have sent teams of weapons specialists into Libya to search for loose, Russianmade anti-aircraft missiles and other dangerous munitions. Arms experts and investigators said learning
more about the source of those weapons would help them know what to look for and assess the threat. “We know there are a lot of conventional weapons floating around Libya now and an important question to pursue is how they got there,” said Lee S. Wolosky, a former Clinton administration national security deputy who led U.S. efforts to scrutinize contacts between Bout’s network and the Gadhafi government in 2000. “Viktor Bout’s operation in Tripoli would be a good place to start.” U.S. prosecutors revealed evidence before Bout’s three-week trial that the Russian air transport executive had tried in 2008 to sell a Russianmade missile system to an unidentified Libyan client. A federal jury in New York convicted Bout on Wednesday on charges of conspiring to kill Americans and U.S. officials, deliver anti-aircraft missiles

and aid a terrorist organization. He was arrested in Thailand as he negotiated a weapons deal worth at least $15 million with South American narcoterrorists who turned out to be U.S.-paid undercover informants. Documents found by human rights activists in a former Gadhafi government office in Tripoli, the Libyan capital, indicate that in late September 2003, British intelligence officials told then-Libyan intelligence chief Musa Kusa that Bout had a “considerable commercial presence in Libya” and aimed to expand his interests there. The documents do not include any response from Kusa, who later became Gadhafi’s foreign minister until he defected this year. The documents show that Kusa apparently was warned about Bout during a phone conversation with Sir Mark Allen, then-counterterrorism director for MI6, the British spy service. An aide to Allen followed up with telefaxes to Kusa outlining Bout’s Libyan business interests and alerting him to concerns that Bout planned to transfer a major air cargo maintenance operation to Tripoli. In one fax, referring to Bout by his known alias of “Viktor Butt,” a British intelligence official asked Kusa for more information about the Russian’s reported plans to travel to Tripoli. At the time, Bout was targeted by a U.N. international travel ban and subject to arrest. “We should be most grateful for any confirmation of any attempt by Mr. Butt to visit your country,” wrote a person who identified himself as Allen’s assistant.

Looking for the perfect deer hunting destination Not too many years ago a fellow hunter once said to me, â€œYou know, soon itâ€™s going to be tough for the average person to find a place to deer hunt. Youâ€™re just about going to have to be in a club.â€? Fortunately, soon never came. H i s David statement Green seemed leOutdoor gitimate at columnist the time, but as deer herds have expanded throughout the region, so has the number of available options. Instead of being limited to one place or not having anywhere to hunt at all, most sportsmen are now faced with the decision of where to devote most of their time. The opening of the first gun season for deer is getting closer by the minute, and sportsmen of all ages go out of their way to plan ahead and strive toward a common goal. They all
want to locate a good place on some property where there are lots of deer that will give themselves the best possible chance of downing an opening day deer. Most hunters by now have already got a place in mind for opening day, but in case you havenâ€™t or maybe youâ€™re having second thoughts about the area youâ€™ve chosen, Iâ€™m going to give you some options to mull over. The Holly Springs National Forests in Benton County consists of thousands of acres of open public hunting land. Deer hunting on these territories has always been good -- at least, as far back as I can remember -- but now the hunting is better than ever. With deer herds expanding across every corner of the state over the years, the National Forest lands do not receive near the hunting pressure as they once did. Low hunting pressure over time results in a higher population of deer and it also means more deer survive to reach maturity.
But just because there are more mature bucks roaming the woods doesnâ€™t make it any easier to harvest one. A good friend of mine goes down there every fall to bow hunt and at times heâ€™s seen some monster bucks just out of bow range. Then, with the arrival of gun season, he would go back and hunt hard- sometimes wasting an entire season without ever seeing neither hide nor hair of any of the trophy bucks. If hoping to tag an open-
ing day bruiser buck without having to log a bunch of road miles however, one should still put an emphasis on locating places that receive little or no pressure. That could mean venturing farther back into a piece of property where nobody else goes, or could mean trying to gain permission on some land you know hasnâ€™t been hunted in years. Iâ€™ve taken several big bucks during my time, but the two largest came from areas that seldom got hunt-
ed. The place where one of them came from was so far away from civilization it wouldnâ€™t surprise me if the deer had ever seen a human before. Another good destination to check out is the Divide Section Wildlife Management Area located in Prentiss and Tishomingo counties. According to a brochure I looked at recently, the use of modern gun weaponry will be allowed this season. Only bows and primitive weapons were al-
lowed in past years. Avid deer hunters are adept at looking and finding the perfect opening day deer hunting destination, which is usually a place where they expect to score and score big. With so many good places around these days, choosing the best one could be the most difficult part of preparing for the hunt.

Giffords vows return in book
STEVE LITTLE has a proven record of honesty, fairness & impartiality. He is the only candidate that lives in Post 1.
“Your Kindness & Support is Greatly Appreciated.”
PHOENIX — Rep. Gabrielle Giffords vows to return to Congress in a new book that details months of intense therapy and her emotional battle to come to terms with what happened when a gunman opened fire in front of a Tucson grocery store. The memoir, called “Gabby: A Story of Courage and Hope,” is the most personal and detailed look yet at Giffords’ struggle over the past 10 months to relearn how to walk and talk, and her painful discovery that 12 others were wounded and six killed during the Jan. 8 attack. The Associated Press purchased an advanced copy of the book. It is set for release on Nov. 15. The book is written by Giffords’ husband, former

astronaut Mark Kelly, but Giffords delivers the last chapter — a single page of short sentences and phrases entitled “Gabby’s Voice” in which she says her goal is to get back to Congress. “I will get stronger. I will return,” she vows. Giffords, 40, stunned colleagues by appearing on the U.S. House floor in Washington on Aug. 1 to vote for the debt ceiling deal, but she has focused most of her time on her recovery at TIRR Memorial Hermann, a rehabilitation center in Houston. In the book, Kelly recalls trying to tell his wife several times what had happened that June 8 morning, when Giffords was shot in the head while meeting constituents. But she didn’t fully understand until March 12.
Kelly asked Giffords if she remembered being shot, and she replied that she did. When he asked what she remembered about it, she said three words: “Shot. Shocked. Scary.” Later that same day, Kelly was reading to her from a New York Times article about her recovery and skipped over a paragraph that said six others were killed. Giffords, following along, knew he left something out and pushed him to tell her what it was. Kelly writes that after she learned of the deaths, Giffords was overcome with emotion and had trouble getting through her therapy. That night as they lay in bed, she told Kelly that she felt awful about all the people who were killed. He held her as she cried.

Civil War diarist’s photos reunited with journals BY SEANNA ADCOX Associated Press
COLUMBIA, S.C. — Nearly 200 photographs that famed Civil War diarist Mary Boykin Chestnut collected to illustrate her epic account of that conflict have been reunited with her original journals, 125 years after her death. Chestnut’s descendants have given the photos to the University of South Carolina, where several dozen will be on public display through Jan. 31 in the school’s South Caroliniana Library. Chestnut’s seven original journals and dozens of her later edits have been at the university since the early 1960s. Chestnut’s daily accounts, which she expanded in later edits to create an autobiographical tone, have long been a historical source as one of the better depictions of the South in the Civil War. The best edited and well-known version, published in 1981, is widely considered the finest literary work of the Confederacy. “The albums are basically the eyes, the faces, the hands of those who figure in the diary,” Henry Fulmer, the library’s curator of manuscripts, said Thursday. The images — 2 1/2-by4 1/2-inch photographs called “cartes de visite” or visit cards swapped in that era — include images of President Abraham Lincoln, Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee, newspaper editor Horace Greeley, and European leaders from whom Southern leaders sought support, including Pope Pius IX. They also put a face to lesser known family and friends mentioned in her diary. “They absolutely confirm and illustrate her pan-
oramic view of the Civil War as a great epic tragedy,” said her great-great grand-niece Marty Daniels, 67, who is among 12 in her generation responsible for the upkeep of the family’s historic Mulberry Plantation near Camden. “She was writing not just of the Confederates but the whole world stage,” Daniels noted. The family donated Chestnut’s three albums to the university in September, nearly four years after winning at auction those albums once considered lost to history. Family members and scholars knew they existed. But the albums that Chestnut referenced in her journals disappeared in 1931, after the niece who inherited them died. They resurfaced in November 2007 on eBay. “Of course, where else would they be in this day
and age?” Daniels asked, laughing. She credits a Civil War collector who recognized their worth for saving the albums from an owner who had begun taking them apart and selling the photos separately. Alerted to the eBay notice about a live auction in Nashville, the family pooled their resources. Daniels said even her elementary school grandchildren wanted to contribute, and the family urged libraries and museums across South Carolina not to bid against them. “We were very afraid we wouldn’t be able to afford them,” Daniels said. In making the request, the family promised “we’d do the right thing and get them to the people of South Carolina and reunite them with her diaries, but we also dearly wanted to see the photographs of our ancestors.”

To the Post 2 Voters of Alcorn County: Please help me ensure the citizens of Alcorn County receive fair and impartial justice from its local court system. I was raised on a farm in Union County where I learned many principles of hard work and perseverance. I am also the product of a long line of Mississippi educators, and I personally know the importance of public service and community involvement. Before relocating my family to Corinth in 2003, I was elected twice to serve as Alderman for the City of Baldwyn. Additionally, I have practiced law in Northeast Mississippi and Corinth, as well as worked in ﬁnancial services, for a combined 16 years. I want to put my experience to work for you and your family. Your consideration is greatly appreciated.
STARKVILLE — Mississippi State University has received approval for two construction projects and a land exchange from the state College Board. Jerry Gilbert, provost and executive vice president at MSU, said that chief among the projects is a new classroom building with built-in parking facilities to the north of the YMCA building. Initially, Gilbert said, internal discussions at MSU only placed a parking garage on this parcel, but record enrollment at MSU accelerated discussion of a new classroom building. He said it was MSU President Mark Keenum who came up with the idea to combine the new classrooms and parking into a single building. “The discussion of the project has been about a year, but only recently within the last four months or so have we been talking about the project with classrooms associated with it,” Gilbert said. Gilbert said the facility will feature a total of about 1,900 classroom seats in 38 classrooms of varying sizes. University architect Tim Muzzi said the classroom space will be located on the upper three floors, with 170-185 parking spaces on the bottom two floors. Gilbert said these num-
bers are far from final because what College Board approved was only MSU’s call for proposals from its chosen architectural firm, Belinda Stewart Architects in Eupora. Further, Muzzi said, the project still has to be approved by the state Bureau of Buildings. “Anything that we do that’s over $1 million has to be approved by IHL (College Board),” Muzzi said. “If there’s state funds involved, IHL has to approve it, then it has to be approved by the Bureau of Buildings.” Muzzi said it usually takes 8-10 months for contracts, designs and other steps in the planning and state approval process before MSU can actually break ground on a project, so he anticipates construction starting about one year from now. From there, Muzzi said, it could take from 12 to 16 months to actually construct the facility. He said College Board’s approval letters are currently at the Bureau of Buildings, so design development should start by Jan. 1, 2012. The College Board also approved a land exchange between MSU and the Mississippi Baptist Convention, through which MSU will receive the current Baptist Student Union Building and its associated 2.5 acres.

Mississippi prepares for Tuesday general election BY EMILY WAGSTER PETTUS Associated Press
JACKSON — Mississippi’s two gubernatorial nominees, Republican Phil Bryant and Democrat Johnny DuPree, spent Saturday traveling the northern part of the state in their final push toward Tuesday’s general election. Bryant, who has outspent DuPree more than 7-to-1, was urging Republicans not to be complacent as he seeks to succeed GOP Gov. Haley Barbour, who’s limited to two terms. DuPree was trying to solidify support among Democrats, emphasizing that he has been outspent in every campaign in which he’s had an opponent. Polls will be open 7 a.m.7 p.m. Tuesday as voters elect eight statewide officials, including a new gov-
ernor, treasurer and commissioner of agriculture. Bryant, 56, of Brandon, is finishing one term as lieutenant governor. DuPree, 57, is in his third term as mayor of Hattiesburg. There are no thirdparty or independent candidates running for governor. While the two nominees have largely avoided criticizing each other, Republican leaders in recent days — including Bryant and Barbour — have been saying a GOP win in redstate Mississippi will give the party momentum as it tries to unseat Democratic President Barack Obama in 2012. DuPree has not responded to the tactic, saying he is focusing on telling voters about his own ideas and his record
of avoiding tax increases and attracting privatesector jobs as mayor of what’s now Mississippi’s fourth-largest city. In an email to supporters Friday, DuPree touted three endorsements he has received, from comedian and actor Bill Cosby; from former U.S. Agriculture Secretary Mike Espy, a Democrat who represented Mississippi’s 2nd District in the U.S. House in the late 1980s and early 1990s before joining President Bill Clinton’s Cabinet; and from Ron Williams, a Gulf Coast businessman who unsuccessfully sought the Republican nomination for governor this year. “I think Ron William’s endorsement shows the reach of this campaign,” DuPree wrote. “Our mes-
sage of restructuring education, creating jobs through small business development and expanding rural access to health care is resonating across the state and across party lines.” Mississippi has had Republican governors four of the past five terms. Kirk Fordice of Vicksburg won the 1991 race, becoming the state’s first Republican governor since Reconstruction and serving two terms. He was followed by Democrat Ronnie Musgrove of Batesville. Barbour, a Yazoo City native who’d been a top-tier Washington lobbyist, unseated Musgrove in 2003. “There has never been one Republican governor followed into office by another Republican gover-
nor,” Bryant said Thursday at a rally in Rankin County. “I don’t know about y’all, but I’m ready to make some history.” DuPree is the first black candidate to win a majorparty nomination for the Mississippi governorship. While he has acknowledged the milestone, he doesn’t dwell on it. He’s been campaigning designed to appeal to a wide swath of voters. Two-term state Treasurer Tate Reeves of Flowood, a 37-year-old Republican, is expected to be elected lieutenant governor on Tuesday. No Democrat is in the race for the state’s second-highest office, and Reeves’ only opponent is the Reform Party’s Tracella Lou O’Hara Hill of Petal, who has spent only
$200 on her campaign. Candidates in the treasurer’s race are Republican Lynn Fitch of Madison, Democrat Connie Moran of Ocean Springs and the Reform Party’s Shawn O’Hara of Hattiesburg. Fitch, 50, has raised the most money in the race. She has been executive director of the state Personnel Board the past two years, and is on leave during the campaign. She spent five years as deputy director of the state Department of Employment Security. She started her legal career on the staff of then-Attorney General Ed Pittman. As an assistant attorney general, Fitch represented several state entities, including the treasurer’s office and the Bond Commission.

Booneville native’s opera sings praises of collard greens BY RICHARD MORGAN Associated Press
OXFORD — Although there are no definitive chronicles on the subject, it seems safe to say that the entire history of opera had never before included the word “jiveass” — that is, until it was included in “Leaves of Greens,” an opera performed by University of Mississippi students in Oxford on Sunday morning. The odd tone of the lyrics mirrored the opera’s odd subject matter: It was a three-part oratorio devoted entirely to collard greens, a trippy triptych for food and music enthusiasts alike. When she first got an email suggesting “a vegetable opera,” Amanda Johnston, 40, an assistant music professor, pianist and music director for the opera theater at Ole Miss, was wary. Then she realized the broad cache of Southern literature that mentions collards, from writers including William Faulkner and Mark Twain. She suggested to the Southern Foodways Alliance, which commissioned the work for its annual symposium, that a junior music major, Price Walden, 20, create the opera. He pored through “Leaves of Greens: the Collard Poems,” a poetry collection published in 1984 by a North Carolina collard festival. He needed the help. Walden, from Booneville, eats collards rarely, pretty much only during holiday trips to his grandmother’s house. And Johnston, a recent Canadian immigrant, has never eaten collards. “It’s not like there’s a lot of precedent,” said Johnston. “So we had a lot of license.” After a month of boiling down the right lyrics, Walden took another month and a half to pair them with his own musical compositions. A dozen students began rehearsals
“From age to age the South has hollered the praises of the toothsome collard. Our parents’ precepts we have follered and countless messes we have swallered. When times were hard, a single dollar’d buy ample potfulls of the collard. And any help nutrition scholar’d give highest rating to the collard. Full many a happy hog has wallered in luscious leaves of wilting collard. Yes, keep your cordon bleu — by Gollard! I’d trade it all for one big collard!” “Leaves of Greens” sample lyrics in late September. The performance lasted about half an hour and took place in the Lyric Theater, on Oxford’s famed town square. Dressed in modest costumes of greens, browns and burgundy in a style that could be called “sharecropper chic,” the students mostly sang a cappella but were also accompanied by a vibraphone and Johnston on piano. They sang as a choir, as well as in solos, duets and trios. The performance included references to children’s first squeamish bites, tips on growing and cooking greens, as well as stories about family traditions, Thanksgiving and more. “You know who used to wear a collard in his lapel just like a proud carnation?” went one riff, which continued, “Thelonious Sphere Monk from North Carolina is who. I like to imagine some hotstuff jazz critic — maybe Leonard Feather or another jiveass — asking, ‘Say Monk, what is that thing you’ve got on?’ And Thelonious replies: ‘You looking at my sole credentials.”’ In an earnest benediction on collards immediately before the opera, Ed Davis, the speaker, said, “Collards are proof we are loved” to sincere nods in the audience of about 200; they gave the opera a standing ovation when it finished. “It’s been absolutely surreal,” said Walden, while signing program bulletins for audience members after the show.

Horoscopes The Scorpio sun and the Pisces moon accompany each other like shadows and fog, playing games with our senses and seducing us into their illusions. The atmosphere is infused with moody mystery, but you don’t have to be. Don’t believe what you see. Theatrical distortions are enjoyable when you don’t take them too seriously. ARIES (March 21-April 19). Relationships are always changing, though the changes are often gradual. You anticipate how things will develop. You know it before it happens. You feel the wind changing direction, and you gather meaning from the shift.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You endear yourself to others, though certainly not on purpose. You’re just in that sweet mood you wear so well -- the one where you can’t help but do nice things for people. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Every place you go has a mood that was there before you arrived on the scene. You notice the looks on the faces around you and know exactly “where it’s at.” Your just being in a place lifts the vibration for everyone. CANCER (June 22-July 22). There’s someone you like immensely who has been on your mind even more than usual. Reflect on why you’re so smitten.
Your answer will tell more about you than the other person. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You won’t agree with all you hear. Don’t be afraid to question people when you don’t quite follow their logic. It’s acceptable and even appropriate to hold people accountable for what they say. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll gather information, but it just doesn’t seem to add up. Instead of going deeper into the issue, take a step back. You already know the answer intuitively. Your “gut” is giving you signals. Start reading. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). About six things will
be thrown at you at once. You don’t have to catch all six. Take it one task at a time. Exercise will help you get grounded and prevent you from going into “overwhelm.” SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your senses will be heightened, not because you are given some kind of superpower by the sun, but because you tune in to your surroundings. Your awareness makes you experience things deeply. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It will do you no good to dwell intellectually on matters of the heart today; feelings don’t want to be processed that way. Instead, let the emotions work through your
body and soul. Reserve judgment for a later date. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You feel at times that you are so far from your goal that it’s futile to keep trying. When the feeling creeps in, you know that it’s time to give yourself a break from all the striving. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18). You want to feel loved and supported. This is what drives you to make a special effort to look and behave in an ultra-attractive way. One could say your efforts are just one way you love and support yourself. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Harmony depends on how well you know
your loved ones. This is no time to get overconfident about the matter. Ask questions, and watch as though you were just learning about the person for the first time. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 6). You’ll be a superstar at work after you get special training before the year is over. You’ll enjoy the love that comes into your life, mostly because you don’t expect it, though you recognize that you really deserve it. March brings terrific news. In June, you’ll invest in yourself, which pays off handsomely in August. Gemini and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 12, 14, 39 and 1. FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: The full moon in Taurus will light the sky on Wednesday, awakening the senses and bringing forth a greater appreciation for all that’s delicious, harmonic and beautiful. There are other moods and mysteries that will haunt the atmosphere, though the Taurean influence is likely to keep us true to our original goals and intentions. Wednesday features another important passage, one that will last through June 8, 2012. After a fivemonth journey backward (at least from our earthly point of view), Neptune, the planet of dreams, visions and ideals, resumes a direct course in Aquarius. This forward-moving transit is good news for technology lovers, and these days that’s nearly everyone. In the months to come, millions will resolve to be a small help to a big cause, and the results will march humanity toward a bright future.

Review: Englishâ€™s tone too harsh BY DINESH RAMDE Associated Press
Grammarian Robert Hartwell Fiske doesnâ€™t seem to have much tolerance for people who spell poorly and misuse idioms. But he saves his greatest contempt for the nationâ€™s dictionary editors. Fiske seems to have the best of intentions in his new book, â€œRobert Hartwell Fiskeâ€™s Dictionary of Unendurable English.â€? He catalogs hundreds of examples of misused grammar and provides the correct usage, but his tone
is often so curmudgeonly as to be off-putting. For example, plenty of grammar police point out that irregardless isnâ€™t a word. But to Fiske, someone who uses the term is â€œa shoddy speaker, a third-rate writer, a thoughtless thinker.â€? He also writes that people who use good where well should be used are â€œsoulless speakers, hopeless writers.â€? Those bouts of touchiness are infrequent, but they still get tiresome. To be fair, Fiske has a
clear passion for the English language. He believes words should be used according to their specific meanings, and that the meanings shouldnâ€™t be allowed to change just because enough people fail to get the usage right. Thatâ€™s where he faults dictionaries. Too many dictionary editors allow alternate versions of words he laments. Although Fiskeâ€™s heart seems to be in the right place, his message occasionally gets lost in his writing.

â€˜Meanâ€™ moment leads to CMA nom for Swift BY CHRIS TALBOTT Associated Press
NASHVILLE, Tenn. â€” Taylor Swift turned a negative into a positive, and it has netted her a special nomination at this yearâ€™s Country Music Association Awards. Swift received her first CMA song of the year nomination for â€œMean,â€? her spunky rebuttal to cynical criticism. That trophy goes to the writer, not the artist, and is among Wednesday nightâ€™s most coveted awards in a town where the songwriter is celebrated and revered. â€œRespectfully, itâ€™s about time,â€? said Scott Borchetta, head of Swiftâ€™s label, Big Machine Records. â€œI donâ€™t think she gets near the props she deserves for her songwriting. Iâ€™ve been in the business with Taylor for almost seven years now and her songs were great when I met her at 14.â€? Swift has gotten her share of love for her songwriting. She won a Grammy for best country song in 2010. Nashville Songwriters Association International has named her songwriter/artist of the year four of the last five years â€” and at 21 she remains the youngest winner of that award. And BMI, the performing rights organization, has awarded her all-genre song of the year once and country song of the year three times. Sheâ€™s won a trunk full of CMA trophies, including top award entertainer of the year in 2009. But sheâ€™s never broken through in that songwriting category. â€œMean,â€? a retort to nit-pickers, bullies and
perhaps curmudgeonly commentator Bob Lefsetz, was hard to resist. It shows Swift at her best. Itâ€™s both vulnerable and confident, with an infectious chorus, an upbeat, empowering message and among her most countrified instrumentation built around Swiftâ€™s six-string banjo line. The song went to No. 1 on the country and adult contemporary charts. â€œGetting a CMA nomination for â€˜Meanâ€™ was definitely a jumping-upand-down moment for me because this song is really close to my heart,â€? Swift said in a statement to The Associated Press. â€œIâ€™m so thrilled it was nominated for song of the year because itâ€™s a song that I wrote on a really, really bad day, but it has produced so many happy days for me since.â€? With more to come perhaps. Brad Paisley, a sixtime nominee in the category, believes Swift has been unfairly overlooked as a songwriter among the industry voters who make up the CMA. He points out that most of the voters are in their 30s
and 40s, and older. This yearâ€™s nomination could be a breakthrough. â€œThereâ€™s no 18-yearold in the world that you talk to who doesnâ€™t relate to some of her lyrics,â€? Paisley said. â€œAnd in that sense, though, sheâ€™s laughing all the way to the bank as the voters might be saying, â€˜Well, you know, thatâ€™s not for me.â€™ Thatâ€™s not fair. In some ways itâ€™s even more groundbreaking what sheâ€™s done. Iâ€™m proud of what sheâ€™s done.â€? Other nominees in the category are Zac Brown, Coy Boyles, Wyatt Durette and Levi Lowry for Zac Brown Bandâ€™s â€œColder Weather,â€? Kimberly Perry for The Band Perryâ€™s â€œIf I Die Young,â€? Brantley Gilbert and Colt Ford for Jason Aldeanâ€™s â€œDirt Road Anthemâ€? and Deana Carter and Matraca Berg for Kenny Chesneyâ€™s â€œYou and Tequila.â€? The field can be considered wide open with Berg the only previous winner, in 1997, as co-writer of â€œStrawberry Wine.â€? The CMA Awards air Wednesday on ABC (7 p.m. CST).
