Man gets 15 years for armed robbery BY JEBB JOHNSTON

Defendants in an armed robbery case and an auto burglary case will serve time after entering guilty pleas in Alcorn County Circuit Court.

Christopher Autis Robinson, 39, pleaded guilty to armed robbery and was sentenced to serve 15 years in custody of the Mississippi Department of Corrections without the possibility of early release.

He was one of three individuals arrested in May 2015 after the robbery and assault of a woman at her home on County Road 327. According to the police report on the incident, several items were taken from

the home and the woman was treated at the hospital. Robinson was apprehended after a short chase, while the other two suspects led police on a more than 40-mile highspeed pursuit that crossed into

One of the lowest voter turnouts in county history saw Columbus attorney John Brady carry Alcorn County in Tuesday’s runoff for a seat on the Mississippi Supreme Court. In complete and certified results, Brady took the county with 376 votes (59 percent) to Bobby Chamberlin’s 263 (41 percent). Chamberlin, of Hernando, is the senior circuit judge in the 17th Circuit Court District. Brady, with experience as a defense attorney for businesses and individuals, ran as a conservative Christian, saying he would defend the constitution. In addition to his experience as a circuit judge, Chamberlin has served as a municipal judge and prosecutor and is cofounder of a drug court in the 17th district. The winner will take the seat currently held by Ann Lamar, who did not seek reelection. The district includes 33 north Mississippi counties. Turnout was hampered by a low-key race — the only contest on Tuesday’s ballot — and the threat of severe weather that emerged during the afternoon and evening. Still, the turnout of 640 exceeded the estimates made in the circuit clerk’s of-

County supervisors across the state are asking legislators to increase funding for roads and bridges after years of level funding for infrastructure. While the cost of road and bridge construction has increased 143 percent since 1987, funding for repair and upkeep of this infrastructure has remained flat, explained engineer Kent Geno to a large crowd of area supervisors gathered at Northeast Mississippi Community College for the first stop on the Mississippi Association of Supervisors/Mississippi Association of County Engineers Road Show. “We’re trying to do the same amount of work with the same amount of funds while all these things have increased dramatically,” said Geno. Tuesday’s meeting was the first in a series of stops across the state for the program aimed at spreading the word about infrastructure issues and the association’s push for increased funding ahead of the 2017 state legislative session which begins Jan. 3. The association is asking legislators to consider an increase

A one-vehicle accident on Tuesday resulted in “minimal damage” at historic Henry Cemetery.

Car crashes into cemetery BY BOBBY J. SMITH

The late morning peace of Henry Cemetery was disturbed by the crash of a onecar accident on Tuesday. Emergency personnel were dispatched at approximately 11:30 a.m. when a vehicle plowed into the historic cemetery on North Polk Street. Tishomingo County resident Abbigale Ewing, 18, was the driver of the white Pontiac G6 involved in the cemetery accident.

“Apparently she overcorrected and hit some of the markers there,” said Corinth Police Chief Ralph Dance. According to the police report of the accident, Ewing was traveling south on Polk Street when the front passenger side tire left the roadway. She pulled the car back onto the road and headed east across the street toward the cemetery when the car whipped around counterclockwise, the rear fender striking a utility pole, which

across different areas of the park. The event will feature a number of Christmas carols by groups including the Boys & Girls Club; a Christmas story from Autry Davis; remarks by local civic leaders including Mayor Tommy Irwin; and an appearance by the jolly fat man from the North Pole. Santa will bring Christmas cheer and candy canes to share with children. Participants should meet at Pavilion 2 — the first pavilion across from the park walking trail, where there will be hot chocolate for everyone. Event organizers wish to thank Lowe’s for supporting the 2nd Annual Lighting of Crossroads Regional Park.

Ron Kouri, Pickwick, Tenn.


It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in the park. Park workers were busy Tuesday getting ready for the 2nd Annual Lighting of Crossroads Regional Park, slated to begin at 6 p.m. on Thursday. “We want the public to come out and enjoy it,” said Corinth Alcorn Parks & Recreation administrative assistant Nina Doran. “Last year we had a lot of really good compliments about our decorations, and we’ve tried to make it even better this year.” Decorations this year will include a Christmas tree made entirely of lights, reindeer, and a variety of other Christmas decorations, with lights

Ron Kouri loves to cook. The Pickwick Landing State Park Marina manager cooks a huge Thanksgiving feast every year the Friday before the holiday, something he has done for a dozen years. He cooks everything for the meal at the marina and invites customers, friends and state park employees. “I just love to do it,” said Kouri, who made 16 pies for the event this year. A native of Winfred, N.D., he will celebrate his 19th anniversary as marina manager in January. When not sharing recipes and cooking, Kouri loves to fish. Last May, he landed a 10-pound, 13-ounce largemouth bass at the marina. After a photo session for a fishing magazine, he released the prize catch. He has plans to marry Sandra Aston in a Destin, Fla., ceremony in January.

Firefighters collect toys for local children BY BOBBY J. SMITH

Sometimes Santa comes in a sleigh. Sometimes he arrives in a firetruck. The Corinth Fire Department is asking for the community’s help in providing a better Christmas

for some local kids who may not be waking up to any gifts at all underneath the tree. The new Stuff a Firetruck toy collection will gather toys for needy kids across the county. “Firefighters are giving people by nature — that’s

what we do — this time of the year even more,” said Corinth Fire Department Training Officer Jerry Whirley. “So I came up with the idea to stuff a firetruck with Christmas presents for kids who need them.” Here’s how it works.

On Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings from 3 to 9 p.m., the fire department will bring a trailer to Corinth Walmart, where they will collect toys. Toys collected on Thursday will go to the Lighthouse Foundation’s Toy Store. Those collected on the next two days will go to especially in-need children identified by the Alcorn County Child Protective Services (CPS). “We’re working with the Alcorn County chapter of CPS,” explained Whirley. “They have lots of children placed for various reasons in the county with family or friends. They’re not necessarily foster kids.” With various organizations in the county helping to give a better Christmas to foster children, Whirley wanted to do something for those other kids who aren’t technically classified as foster children and not receiving the support that entails. “This is for the kids not classified as foster

kids but were still taken away from their families for whatever reasons,” he said. “The CPS said around 150 of these kids in our county alone that would possibly not be getting anything for Christmas because there’s no financial aid to help them. “I felt like that was the priority — kids that were possibly not getting anything for Christmas,” Whirley said. Whirley and his fellow firefighters will take the toys collected on Friday and Saturday to the CPS, where they will be distributed to the right kids. The time is slated for 3 to 9 p.m., but the toy collectors will stay at Walmart as long as the job requires, Whirley said. “I told everybody that if they’re still stuffing presents into the truck at nine o’clock, I’m not leaving,” said Whirley. The event organizer said he hopes the toy collection will benefit from the Christmas spirit in the

area this weekend. “We’re hoping when everybody leaves the Christmas parade they’ll come donate a toy or two,” said Whirley. Whirley also said that any group or organization that is looking for a good cause to contribute to can chip in with the Stuff a Firetruck toy drive. “We’ve been told there are a couple of organizations wanting to do something like this but they didn’t know where to take anything,” he explained. “If that’s true, those groups can come stuff the trailer and I’ll make sure they get what’s collected at the Lighthouse or the Alcorn County CPS.” The toy drive is seeking new toys for boys or girls of all age ranges, but especially young school-age kids, roughly around the ages of six to 10 years old. Also needed are diapers and baby wipes. (For more information call Jerry Whirley at 4152110.)

in the state’s tax on fuel to provide additional funding road and bridge repairs. Geno explained counties are responsible for maintaining approximately 52,000 miles of roads, of which 33,000 miles are not eligible for any form of state or federal assistance. The other roads come under the state aid road program which provides funding for work on these roads through a limited budget. Currently a total of $41 million is provided to counties for maintenance of local roads and another $51 million to the state aid road program from the state’s tax on fuel. An additional $20 million is appropriated by the state legislature from the general fund for the Local System Bridge Program which provides funds to repair or replace bridges. This funding is split among all 82 counties in the state. Geno said the revenue numbers from the fuel tax distributed to counties have remained level

Prentiss County Fourth District Supervisor Mike Huddleston and State Sen. Rita Potts Parks listen during the Mississippi Association of Supervisors Road Show meeting held Tuesday at Northeast Mississippi Community College. since 1987 while the costs of construction has risen steadily, leaving counties with less funds to maintain and repair roads and forcing them to increase local property taxes to pay for maintenance. He said the impact of the situation is a road system where 76 percent of roads in the state need maintenance and 46 percent are in poor or very poor condition while 30 percent of bridges across the state are posted with lower than designed weight limits due to deterioration and 146 bridges are closed. He said the issue is one of economic impact for the companies and citizens who use the roads and must pay increased costs for vehicle maintenance. Closed or weight limited bridges also create problems for potential employers, especially in industries such as agriculture and logging, who have difficulty accessing the areas they need to work. Geno said the current funding system works well, there just needs to

be more funds provided. “The system of funding is not broken, it’s just the inadequacy of the funding,” he said. Sen. Rita Potts Parks expressed appreciation for the meeting, saying she was glad to be able to get together with supervisors and other officials to discuss the needs and options. Sen. JP Wilemon told the group he believes a fuel tax increase could pass this session and he would support such a move because infrastructure is vital to the state’s economy. Rep. Tracy Arnold was skeptical of increasing taxes and asked the group if they would be comfortable with any increase being tied to a proposal for greater accountability in spending in order to be certain any additional funds are used to address the most pressing needs. Supervisors Association Executive Director Derrick Surrette said they would certainly be open to accountability measures and want to be transparent.

Today in History

Across the Region Shiloh

Today is Wednesday, Nov. 30, the 335th day of 2016. There are 31 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 30, 1782, the United States and Britain signed preliminary peace articles in Paris for ending the Revolutionary War; the Treaty of Paris was signed in Sept. 1783.

On this date: In 1016, Edmund II, King of the English, died after a reign of seven months. In 1803, Spain completed the process of ceding Louisiana to France, which had sold it to the United States. In 1835, Samuel Langhorne Clemens — better known as Mark Twain — was born in Florida, Missouri. In 1874, British statesman Sir Winston Churchill was born at Blenheim Palace. In 1900, Irish writer Oscar Wilde died in Paris at age 46. In 1936, London’s famed Crystal Palace, constructed for the Great Exhibition of 1851, was destroyed in a fire. In 1939, the Winter War began as Soviet troops invaded Finland. (The conflict ended the following March with a Soviet victory.) In 1940, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz were married at the Byram River Beagle Club in Greenwich, Connecticut. (The marriage ended in divorce in 1960.) In 1954, Ann Elizabeth Hodges of Oak Grove, Alabama, was slightly injured when an 81/2-pound chunk of meteor crashed through the roof of her house, hit a radio cabinet, then struck her as she lay napping on a couch.

Santa to visit military park for Christmas SHILOH, Tenn. – Shiloh National Military Park is inviting children to participate in a Civil War Christmas program on Saturday, Dec. 17, at 2 p.m. at the Shiloh visitor center. “We are excited to present this fun-filled, yet educational opportunity to area children. This unique hour-long program will introduce young people to how Christmas was celebrated over 150 years ago in our nation,” said Superintendent Dale Wilkerson. Gifts during the Civil War time period were often handmade; such as spinning tops, Jacobs’s ladder, and the cup and ball. In order to experience a Civil War Christmas, participating children will have the chance to make their own period gift during the program. St. Nicholas (a.k.a Santa Claus, Kris Kringle and Father Christmas) and Mrs. Claus will take time out from their busy schedule to make a special appearance at Shiloh Battlefield. He even told the park rangers that he is bringing a special gift for the children. (Those who have children who are interested in attending the Civil War Christmas program, should register by contacting the Shiloh Battlefield Visitor Center at 731-689-5696 or online at  

Ramer Commission discusses fire department issues RAMER Tenn. – Issues about a road turned into discussion pertaining to issues with the Ramer Volunteer Fire Department during the city’s commission meeting. Ramer lost its ISO rating of seven in August. The rating went to 10 because of an insufficient number of firefighters responding to fires. David White, assistant chief with the fire department, was there to address the board about a pothole problem on Ramer-Selmer Road when he Open 10-7 Mon-Sat Home of Hatchie Trading Company Apparel

was asked about the fire department. “The problem is there are no young people here,” said White. “We need to get new leadership over there to get our rating down.” ISO requires an average of four firefighters respond to structure fires. Ramer’s response was 3.6. “Our equipment is also outdated,” added White. “As fas as going into a fire, nothing meets safety standards.” An ISO rating of 10 is the same as not having a fire department. “We have the same 10 people who fight the fires around here and it doesn’t matter what department they are from,” said White. Firefighters with departments in Guys, Eastview and Chewalla also respond to fires in Ramer, according to White. Armstrong addressed the problem during the August meeting by saying the problem is younger firemen work during the day and attend their family activities at night.

Oxford UM ranked with top military programs OXFORD – For a fourth straight year, the University of Mississippi is one of the nation’s top schools for military programs and educational opportunities for veterans, according to Military Advanced Education and Transition’s 2017 Guide to Colleges and Universities. MAE&T awarded the designation after measuring best practices in military and veteran education. The guide was released Nov. 10, and is available online at “I was excited to hear that this university is recognized for its commitment to honor our veterans, service members and their families,” said Lt. Col. E. Scott Walton, UM chair and professor of military science and leadership. “With a commission from the University of Mississippi comes unsurpassed academic knowledge and mili-

tary training.” This designation, coupled with the university’s designation as a Purple Heart Campus last year, reinforces the hard work done by administration, faculty and staff to assist ROTC students in the successful pursuit of their dreams, he said. “The university, from the top down, provides outstanding support to the military,” Walton said. “Thanks to that support, all of the cadets, midshipmen and Marines that graduate and receive a commission from University of Mississippi are extremely well-prepared to lead in our nation’s military. “I would like to thank the university – not only as the department chair of Army ROTC here – but as a service member who sees firsthand the support this university renders.” The guide presents results of a questionnaire of the militarysupportive policies enacted at more than 600 institutions, including private, public, forprofit, not-for-profit, four-year and two-year colleges. The 2017 Guide to Colleges & Universities arms students with information about institutions that go out of their way to give back to the country’s men and women in uniform. In its 10th year of publishing the guide, MAE&T was the first publication to launch a reference tool of this type. This year, institutions were evaluated on their military culture, financial aid, flexibility, general support, on-campus support and online support services.

Columbus Firefighters put out car fire, find body COLUMBUS — Columbus police say firefighters called to a grass fire found a burning car — and when the fire was out, they found a man’s body near the car. Lowndes County Coroner Greg Merchant tells WCBI-TV that there was evidence of a gunshot wound. WTVA-TV reports that the man was 18 years old. Authorities say his body was

found several feet from the car early Monday morning. Officials say the man’s name is being withheld because investigators are trying to notify his family. Police have not arrested anyone.

West Point 1 killed in shooting at Thanksgiving concert WEST POINT — One person is dead after a Thanksgiving night shooting in West Point. Multiple media outlets report details are limited but it happened at a concert by rapper Moneybagg Yo at the Bryan Union Hall. Witnesses tell investigators the victim apparently was caught in the crossfire of an altercation and not the intended victim. Police Chief Tim Brinkley confirmed the shooting death Friday and added more information would be released later.

Oxford Traffic stop results in arrest of 2 men OXFORD – A simple traffic stop uncovered not only outstanding warrants but stolen property as well. Oxford police pulled over a car Saturday for a traffic violation. While talking with the driver and passenger, officers learned that both Morris Tallie, 31, and Christopher Kirkwood, 33, were wanted for burglary. The two Oxford residents were arrested. A search of their car uncovered items that had been reported stolen earlier in the week. Through the interview process, investigators determined the items had been stolen from residences on Poplar Heights, Church Street and Murray Street. The suspects took investigators to a house on Campground Road where more stolen property was recovered. Almost all of the property has been recovered. The men were charged with burglary. Bond was set at $10,000 for Tallie and $20,000 for Kirkwood.

Letter to the Editor

Flag issue obscures state’s real problems To the Editor: I have really tried to stay away from the flag debate, but after reading the letter from the gentleman in Oxford in the Corinthian Sunday paper, I have to respond. First of all this issue was settled by the voters in 2001. I know those with their own agenda have used the tragedy in South Carolina to promote their cause. This, in itself, is despicable to use the suffering of others to further your own cause. The Mississippi flag had nothing to do with the actions of this lunatic. I also like how individuals manage to cherry pick facts to support their own cause. I’m certain, given enough effort. I could cherry pick my own statistics. My problem with the whole issue is those advocating a flag change don’t want to utilize the system. They want the legislature to circumvent the will of the voters. So far the legislators have elected to not go this route and they should stay that course. The fact is the flag is the flag and it should fly over every state institution until changed by the voters. To not display the flag should mean immediate suspension of any state funding. Disrespecting what is currently legal is not the way to get things changed. I’m also so tired of hearing how the flag represents racism. I have news for you my friend. Racism lives in the heart and not in a piece of cloth. So those advocating change need to look inside their hearts also. I think it is just part of their liberal mantra which is, If you do not agree with me or my beliefs then you are a racist or a hater. That being said let’s do this. I personally have not seen a suggested replacement. So, maybe a couple of suggested replacements from someone or a group that is well versed in Mississippi history should be presented for consideration, or maybe just consider the old Magnolia flag. Then you get enough signatures of registered voters to put it to a referendum. Only this time the referendum needs to be legally binding. Last of all the suggested replacements must go up against the existing flag. Then the voters can decide. If one of the alternate designs wins, so be it. At least it was done correctly. Keep this in mind the Mississippi flag is not like the flag that flew in Sorth Carolina beginning in 1961 and was removed in 2015. The Mississippi flag has been in existence since 1894 and like it or not it is a piece of history. In conclusion let’s consider this. With all of the problems in Mississippi like teen pregnancy, obesity, poverty, high school dropout rates, unemployment and being ranked 50th in every statistic except catfish production should this be a priority? Rick Smith Corinth

Trump trade policy must put U.S. first Donald Trump’s election triumph is among the more astonishing in history. Yet if he wishes to become the father of a new “America First” majority party, he must make good on his solemn promise: To end the trade deficits that have bled our country of scores of thousands of factories, and to create millions of manufacturing jobs in the USA. Fail here, and those slim majorities in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin disappear. The president-elect takes credit for jawboning William Clay Ford to keep his Lincoln plant in Louisville. He is now jawboning Carrier air conditioning to stay in Indiana and not move to Mexico. Good for him. But these are baby steps toward ending the $800 billion trade deficits in goods America runs annually, or bringing back factories and creating millions of new manufacturing jobs in the USA. The NAFTA Republicans tell us the plants and jobs are never coming back, that we live in a globalized world, that production will now be done where it can be done cheapest. Yet, on Nov. 8, Americans rejected this defeatism and

responded to Trump’s call for a new nationalism rooted in the economic principles and patriotism of Hamilton and the men of Mount

Rushmore. The president-elect has declared the TPP dead, and says he and his negotiators will walk away rather than accept another NAFTA. Again, good, but again, not good enough. The New International Economic Order imposed upon us for decades has to be overthrown. For the root cause of the trade deficits bleeding us lies in U.S. tax laws and trade policies that punish companies that stay in America and reward companies that move production overseas. Executives move plants to Mexico, Asia and China for the same reason U.S. industrialists moved plants from the Frost Belt to the Sun Belt. Given the lower wages and lighter regulations, they can produce more cheaply there. In dealing with advanced economies like Japan, Germany, and the EU, another

critical factor is at work against us. Since the Kennedy Round of trade negotiations, 50 years ago, international trade deals have reduced tariffs to insignificance. But our trade rivals have replaced the tariffs with value-added taxes on imports from the USA. Even to belong to the EU, a country must have a VAT of at least 15 percent. As Kevin Kearns of the U.S. Business and Industry Council writes, Europeans have replaced tariffs on U.S. goods with a VAT on U.S. goods, while rebating the VAT on Europe’s exports to us. Some 160 countries impose VAT taxes. Along with currency manipulation, this is how European and Asian protectionists stick it to the Americans, whose armed forces have defended them for 60 years. We lose at trade negotiations, even before we sit down at the table, because our adversaries declare their VAT nonnegotiable. And we accept it. Trump has to persuade Congress to deal him and our trade negotiators our own high cards, without our having to go to the WTO and asking, “Mother, may I?” Like this writer, Kearns

argues for an 18 percent VAT on all goods and services entering the United States. All tax revenue raised by the VAT -- hundreds of billions -- should be used to reduce U.S. taxes, beginning by ending the income tax on small business and reducing to the lowest rate in the advanced world the U.S. corporate income tax. The price of foreign-made goods in U.S. stores would rise, giving a competitive advantage to goods made in America. And with a border VAT of 18 percent, every U.S. corporate executive would have to consider the higher cost of leaving the U.S. to produce abroad. Most important, by having Americans buy more from each other, and rely more on each other for the necessities of life, U.S. trade and tax policies would work to create a greater interdependence among us, rather than pull us apart as they do today. Why not write new tax and trade laws that bring us together, recreating the one nation and people we once were -- and can be again? Patrick J. Buchanan is the author of the new book “The Greatest Comeback: How Richard Nixon Rose From Defeat to Create the New Majority.”

Arc of history doesn’t always bend toward justice History is on our side. That’s a claim Barack Obama has made frequently, in his two successful campaigns for president and during his nearly eight years in office. It’s a claim that looks a little shakier this Thanksgiving holiday than it did during the Halloween holiday three weeks ago. Obama has frequently paraphrased a statement made by Martin Luther King: “The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” King, in turn, was paraphrasing the 19th-century abolitionist Theodore Parker. They turned out to be right about this -- but not without doing a considerable amount of the bending themselves. Parker was one of the abolitionists who set America on the course of abolishing slavery. King did as much as anyone else to persuade Americans to end racial segregation. But the arc didn’t travel in a straight line. The rights of freed slaves were effectively abolished after the rejection of the Republicans’ Reconstruction policies. Most Americans were content to let the South enforce segre-

gation for 80 years. Millions lived their whole lives under this system during. Michael M a n y Barone around the world fared Columnist worse. Tens of millions died in World War I and World War II. Josef Stalin, Adolf Hitler and Mao Zedong caused the deaths of tens of millions more. Americans today, few of whom have a memory going back before 1945, take it for granted that Hitler and Nazism were defeated. Millennials, most of whom have no memory of 1989, take for granted the fall of the Berlin Wall and the end of the Soviet Union. Most Americans don’t remember the late 1970s, when Mao died and Deng Xiaoping put China on the path of capitalist economic growth. None of these things was inevitable. Consider the 22 months between Aug. 23, 1939, when the Hitler-Stalin pact was signed, and June 22, 1941, when Hitler invaded the Soviet Union. Hitler,

Stalin and their allies in Italy and Japan swept over much of the landmass of Eurasia. Only an isolated Britain stood in their way, while an isolationist America dreaded getting involved. It was the closest the world has come to the dystopia of George Orwell’s “1984.” Two great leaders rose to the occasion. Winston Churchill insisted that Britain would never surrender, and Franklin Roosevelt provided American military aid to make sure it could fight on. On the deck of HMS Prince of Wales in a bay in Newfoundland in August 1941, Churchill and Roosevelt proclaimed the Four Freedoms. They had a sense of where they wanted history to head and how to move it in that direction. We take it for granted that the arc of history moved the right way, but it took some very heavy bending by two leaders and the millions they inspired. Obama’s vision of the arc of history is more cramped and partisan. In his view, history is a story of progress toward an ever larger government at home and an ever more assertive America

abroad. On foreign policy, Obama clearly thinks America has too often been on the wrong side of history, an oppressor more often than a liberator. Better to cede power to international organizations and to hold out to unfriendly powers an “open hand” rather than a “clenched fist.” So far, that seems to have produced not affection but contempt. Vladimir Putin expands Russian power into Ukraine and Syria. China advances to dominate international sea lanes. The mullahs of Iran ramp up support of terrorism and do little to conceal their pursuit of nuclear weapons. Unfortunately, the arc of history seems to be bending toward something other than justice. As Churchill and Roosevelt knew, history is contingent, and those who act as if progress is inevitable often prove to be sadly disappointed.

JACKSON — Runoffs on Tuesday decided one seat on the Mississippi Supreme Court, one on the state Court of Appeals and two in the state House of Representatives. Judicial candidates run without party labels. Because the legislative races are special elections, those candidates also run without party affiliation.

Supreme court Circuit Judge Bobby Chamberlin of Hernando won a seat on the state’s top court, defeating attorney John Brady of Columbus in a northern district runoff.

Chamberlin has been a circuit judge since 2004 in DeSoto, Panola, Tallahatchie, Tate and Yalobusha counties. Chamberlin will begin an eightyear term in January.


Legislative races Winners of the runoffs for two state House seats will serve the final three years of a four-year term. Donnie Scoggin defeated Ron Swindall in District 89 in Jones County. Scoggin will succeed Republican Rep. Bobby Shows of Ellisville, who retired. John Glen Corley defeated Greg Holcomb in District 106 in Lamar and Pearl River counties. Corley will succeed Republican Rep. Herb Frierson of Poplarville, who left the House to become state revenue commissioner.

Court of appeals Judge Jack Wilson retained his seat on the Mississippi Court of Appeals and begins an eight-year term in January. He defeated Ed Hannan. Both men live in Madison. Wilson was appointed to the Court of Appeals by Republican Gov. Phil Bryant in July 2015 to succeed Judge Larry Roberts, who

Storms bring hail, tornados across Mississippi Associated Press

JACKSON — Thunderstorms produced large hail and tornadoes across parts of Mississippi on Tuesday, as officials warned that severe weather could threaten the state through the night. The National Weather Service in Jackson said late Tuesday that it had counted six confirmed tornadoes so far in the areas of the state it monitors. Eric Carpenter, a meteorologist with the weather service’s Jackson office responsible for central Mis-

sissippi, said they’ll be sending out teams today to survey the damage. He says one tornado extended from eastern Rankin to Scott County. One stretched from Winston to Noxubee County. Others touched down in Noxubee, Oktibveha, Lowndes and Clay counties. He says some major roof damage was reported to homes, but so far that appeared to be the worst of the damage. Severe weather forced officials in one north Mississippi county to stop counting votes Tuesday night. Paula Cooper, a deputy circuit

clerk in Itawamba County, said storms had damaged buildings in Fulton and the county remained under severe weather warnings, so elections officials were sent home. Cooper said they will count votes today. Itawamba is one of 33 counties where a Supreme Court runoff was being held. National Weather Service meteorologist Brad Bryant said observers reported baseball- and golf ballsized hail hitting central and north Mississippi as several powerful storms move across the state.

etery Director John Ross was soon at the cemetery inspecting the accident site. “It looked like it could have been a lot worse than what it really was,” said Ross. “The cemetery received minimal damage. It did knock down some of the bushes and highway markers. No grave markers were damaged, though.”

suspended eight-year sentence with five years of probation. In a separate case, Dakota Blake Stults, 23, of Davis Avenue, Florence, Ala., entered guilty pleas on three counts of burglary of a motor vehicle and received seven-year sentences on two counts for a total of 14 years to serve. The third count

drew a suspended sentence with five years of probation and payment of restitution. Corinth police arrested Stults July 1 in Florence, Ala., after linking him through home video surveillance to the burglary of several unlocked vehicles in the Cedar Creek subdivision in North Corinth. Judge Paul Funderburk handed down the sentences last week.


fice. Joe Caldwell had predicted between 300 and 400. The smallest precinct, Bethel, had only nine machine votes.

The total includes 14 absentee votes. There were no affidavit ballots. It is believed there was a congressional runoff in the early 2000s that had a lower turnout.

What you need to know about health insurance BY TRUDY LIEBERMAN Rural Health News Service

Even though the election is over and Republicans are in a position to repeal and replace Obamacare as they’ve been vowing to do for several years, that doesn’t mean you should avoid signing up for 2017 insurance coverage. If you’re eligible and need insurance, the state shopping exchanges are open for business even if options this year are limited in many counties, particularly in rural areas. More than 40 percent of the counties where residents can buy an Obamacare policy have just one insurer selling them. That’s not a lot of choice, and policies that are offered are likely to have high premiums and limited options for doctors and hospitals. Still, some careful shopping is in order to minimize any surprise bills. After the election, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest urged Americans to sign up and announced “the vast majority” of eligible consumers would be able to buy insurance for a monthly premium of $75 or less, which has been the administration’s sales pitch. Assuming the White House math is correct, that doesn’t mean the vast majority should automatically buy a policy with a $75 premium. That strategy can mean expensive trouble later on. Reviewing the basics before wading into the Obamacare marketplace this year is essential. For starters, recall that platinum policies, generally the most costly, cover 90 percent of someone’s medical costs; gold plans cover 80 percent; silver plans pay 70 percent; and the bronze variety pays the least – only 60 per-

cent of a patient’s healthcare expenses. Silver plans have been the most popular, largely because those who buy them and have family incomes b e l o w $60,750 Lieberman get extra government subsidies to help pay their deductibles, copays and coinsurance. Bronze policies are popular, too, because they have low premiums, but people buying those policies won’t get the extra subsidies, a point that’s worth remembering. Those subsidies can be a big help if you need a lot of medical services. Both bronze and silver policies generally come with lower monthly premiums, but that doesn’t mean they are cheaper in the long run. Here’s where comparison-shopping gets tricky. It’s possible a bronze policy and maybe a silver one could end up costing more than a gold one with a higher premium if you get sick. That’s because of the relationship between the premium, copays, coinsurance and deductibles. Insurers mix and match these features to fit their marketing strategy. In general, a lower premium means higher deductibles and higher other out-of-pocket expenses. A policy with a higher premium often means lower out-of-pocket costs. For 2017 the maximum amount a family would have to pay out-of-pocket for copays, coinsurance and deductibles is $14,300. That’s a lot of money and enough to deter some people from signing up. Many people

For 2017 the maximum amount a family would have to pay out-ofpocket for copays, coinsurance and deductibles is $14,300. say paying that much before insurance pays isn’t really insurance. It’s also high enough to keep people from seeking medical care even when they need it. If people go to the doctor less, the country’s national health expenditures will drop - at least that’s the rationale for the high out-of-pocket limit. An Indiana couple I’ve written about before in this column recently sent an email updating me on the family’s insurance options for next year. Their carrier had increased their $836 monthly premium to about $1,300; their cost even after an Obamacare tax subsidy was applied. What’s more, the reader said, the insurer had raised the amount of coinsurance for hospitalizations from 20 percent to 50 percent. Given how much a hospital stay costs, they worried they’d be on the hook for a lot of money until they reached the $14,300 out-of-pocket maximum. It was a risk they weren’t willing to take, and they shopped until they found new coverage for only $700 a month with their subsidy. Choosing an Obamacare policy or any other insurance coverage comes down to how much risk you want to assume. If you are reasonably certain you won’t need many medical services, you may want to take a chance and buy less expensive insurance that comes with high deductibles, copays, and coinsurance. But if you’re like the Indiana couple, and afraid of high expenses for un-

Consumers who bought insurance from the Obamacare coops learned that. Almost all of the 23 coops authorized to compete with the big carriers have gone out of business. They priced their policies too low, and too many sick people signed up. Government regulators closed them down, send-

Home sales indicator A new tally of pending home sales contracts should provide insight into the health of the housing market. The National Association of Realtors’ pending home sales index rose in September after slipping the previous month. The gain suggests that home sales are ending 2016 on a high note. There’s usually a one or two month lag between a contract signing and a completed sale. The Realtors association releases today its pending home sales index for October.

Past Performance

seasonally adjusted annual rate


averaging an anemic 1.5 percent. That’s even worse than the 2.1 percent GDP average when George W. Bush was in office. Over the last four decades, only Bill Clinton has come close to 4 percent GDP rates, averaging 3.9 percent when he was in office in the 1990s. Economists have boosted their forecasts based on Trump’s proposals to cut taxes and increase spending on infrastructure, but those forecasts are still around 2.5 percent in 2017 and 2018, far below 4 percent.

President-elect Donald Trump pledged during the campaign to bring jobs back to America and boost overall economic growth. “It’s time to establish a national goal of reaching 4 percent of economic growth,” he said in a September speech. But many private economists see a 4 percent goal as a very tall order given current economic trends and recent history. President Barack Obama, who took office with the country in the worst recession in 70 years, will leave office with annual GDP gains

Hiring survey

Wall Street anticipates weaker third-quarter earnings from designer clothing brand owner PVH. The owner of brands including Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger and Izod reports its latest quarterly financial results today. Financial analysts expect PVH’s earnings declined from a year earlier, even as revenue edged higher. The company posted flat earnings in its fiscal first quarter and improved results in the second quarter.

Payroll processor ADP releases today its latest survey of hiring by private U.S. companies. The October survey showed companies added 146,900 jobs in October, the fewest in four months, as construction and manufacturing firms continued to shed workers. The data was the latest sign that the economy is growing at a slow but sustained pace. Economists predict ADP’s new survey will show private employers added more jobs in November.

Coming Up In The Daily Corinthian Watch for a large special edition coming out on Tuesday, Dec. 13 full of local columns and feature stories.

Office trainer seeks right way to dress-down code violators D E A R ABBY: I am a male in the training department at my office. A lot of times, beAbigail cause the I Van Buren people train are new hires, there Dear Abby are dress code violations from people who appear to be testing the limits. Most of the violations involve women who wear clothing that’s too revealing, in spite of the fact they receive a document at the start of training explaining what is and is not appropriate attire. I feel uncomfortable addressing dress code issues with the opposite sex. I have always asked a female in the department to do it for me. My problem is, my manager has told me I need to be able to deal with issues like this if I want to move forward in my career. My question to you and your readers is, as a woman, would you feel more uncomfortable with a male boss addressing a “too much cleavage” or “skirt too short” issue than you would with another female?

And have you any suggestions for wording in these situations? -- DRESSED FOR SUCCESS IN VIRGINIA DEAR DRESSED FOR SUCCESS: Speaking for myself, I think I’d prefer to hear that message from another woman -- however, MY preference is beside the point. You have a job to do, and that is to enforce the rules of your company. So when you tell a female employee that she’s not complying with the dress code, use the wording in the employee handbook or the document the person received when she was hired. (Hopefully, the wording is specific.) DEAR ABBY: I have a question about where and when to have a retirement party. I know it’s inappropriate for families to host a baby shower, but is that true of a retirement party? My husband has worked for a nonprofit for 14 years and will retire in a few months. There isn’t an appropriate site for a party at his work. I have suggested an open house at our home a couple of weeks after his retirement date. My daughter thinks her house would be better because we are

not supposed to have it. My son-in-law dislikes entertaining at home, so I know it would be stressful for them. If we have it at our house, we can encourage friends and co-workers to come over again and stay in touch. I love to entertain and would happily prepare the food and decorate. Am I on the right track, Abby? -- HAPPY THAT HUBBY’S RETIRING DEAR HAPPY: You’re absolutely on the right track. No rule of etiquette forbids you from hosting the party for your husband if you wish. According to Emily Post: “A retirement party may ... be given by family and friends instead of -- or in addition to -- a company party. It’s generally a good idea to invite a few of the retiree’s close work mates. Because they share a work history with the retiree, they’ll be able to speak of specific accomplishments in any speeches and toasts.” Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Horoscopes ARIES (March 21-April 19). Life is not a reality TV show where you’re either “in” or you’re “out.” Relationships often go along indefinitely, a little up-inthe-air, with various degrees of involvement. Don’t be in a rush to categorize where you’re at with people. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Keeping yourself safe from harm includes controlling the distance between you and people you love or could possibly love. It might help to think of yourself as a scientist, collecting data. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’re willing to fall in love with an idea, and you’re just as willing to step back and say, “This is not the right choice for me.” From this position you’ll make stellar decisions that favor your long-term happiness. CANCER (June 22-July 22). To make an emotional investment today will be riskier than other kinds of investing. It will also be more difficult to recover from if it doesn’t go right. That’s why what you’re doing is mighty brave. Give yourself more credit

for taking the risk. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You may not like the notions being brought to the table, but let them air anyway to discover how strong they really are. The censor will lose in the end because strong ideas find the fuel to keep the fire alive. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’re not here to close the deal at all costs.

It would be fun to have certain people for friends, but alas, there are appropriate friendships and inappropriate friendships, and those who can’t figure out the difference are asking for trouble. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There’s no time for critique or complaint today. If you’re walking around lamenting all that’s wrong with society, you’ll be distracted from the fact that you get to choose how to make this

When they knock it out of the park, you’ll beam. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Nothing you experience will go to waste. Your mind will be keen to pick up on the kind of details you can use to solve a problem. You’ll be a regular Sherlock Holmes! AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You haven’t always been able to say that you like your life, but now you can, and this will be reflected in your activities of the day. You’ll agree to propositions that look, sound and feel “so you.” PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There’s more being asked of you, so some of your usual selfcare activities might slip through the cracks now, but the sacrifices you make will be worthwhile. Besides, you can catch up tomorrow.

Greg Biffle and Roush Fenway part ways

In the years since Biffle and Roush first hooked up, Biffle won 16 truck races and the series championship in 2000. He also won 20 Xfinity Series races and the 2002 title, then moved to the elite Cup Series full time in 2003, driving Roush’s No. 16 Ford with 19 victories to his credit. But Biffle’s last Cup win came in 2013, and the recently concluded 2016 season produced the most disappointing results of his career. He had just one top-five finish, two other top-10s and finished a career-worst 23rd in the final points standings. But for Biffle, unlike his former teammates who left Roush and found success elsewhere, it might be too late to regain the glory of his earlier days. He’ll turn 47 on Dec. 23, and in today’s NASCAR world, that essentially makes him a senior citizen. Unless there are some unexpected developments in the next couple of months, all the seats at the top-performing multi-car teams are filled. The opportunities that existed for his former teammates simply aren’t there this time. Former Roush drivers Matt Kenseth and Carl Edwards both landed at Joe Gibbs Racing, where they’ve become regular contenders to both win races and the championship. After he left Roush and before he retired, Mark Martin won five races and finished second in the standings in a Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet in 2009, and Jamie McMurray won the Daytona 500 and the Brickyard 400 in 2010 driving for Chip Ganassi. Although Biffle has expressed frustration over the declining performance at Roush Fenway, he was focusing on the positives of his career in his comments announcing his departure from the team. “We’ve had an incredible run, and I am so appreciative for the opportunity to be a part of Roush Fenway,” he said in a team release. “For a kid that grew up Washington, I’m extremely proud of everything we have been able to accomplish over the last 19 years — both on and off the track. I’ve enjoyed every minute. I’m excited about the next

Mark Martin headed to NMPA and NASCAR Hall of Fame Mark Martin will be inducted into two Halls of Fame in January. On Jan. 20, Martin will enter the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte as a member of the institution’s eighth class, which also includes team owners Rick Hendrick, Richard Childress and the late Raymond Parks, as well as the late driving champion Benny Parsons. Two days later, Martin will be inducted into the National Motorsports Press Association Hall of Fame, which is housed at Darlington Raceway and was the premier NASCAR hall before the opening of the facility in Charlotte. Martin’s name appeared on 95 percent of the ballots cast by members of the NMPA. Others receiving votes but failing to reach the threshold of 65 percent needed for induction were crew chiefs Kirk Shelmerdine (61 percent), Buddy Parrott (59 percent) and Larry McReynolds (51 percent). Dick Thompson, the popular former PR director at Martinsville Speedway, was named on 59 percent of ballots, according to the NMPA.

Greg Biffle won 19 Sprint Cup races at Roush Fenway, though his last victory came in 2013.

chapter of my life, and I look forward to exploring other opportunities — particularly in radio and television — both inside and outside of NASCAR. “I’m thankful to Jack Roush for the opportunity to have driven his race cars for all these years. It’s very rare in this sport to have been able to stay with one team this many years, and to have been as successful as we have been.” Roush also had good things to say about Biffle. “I don’t have the words to say what Greg has meant to this organization,” the veteran team owner said. “He is a true racer who has always exhibited a will to win and an intense passion for speed. “For almost two decades Greg has given us an opportunity to run up front and compete for wins. Greg exemplifies what every owner hopes for in a driver, and I’m extremely thankful for having him as part of our organization. “I know that Greg and I will maintain a strong friendship, and I look forward to leaning on him on occasion as we continue to work on improving our performance.” Officials from Ford Motor Co., which has backed Roush and Biffle for years, also thanked Biffle for his contributions. “Greg Biffle has done so much for Ford during his NASCAR career, and all we can do is thank him for being such a hard-charging competitor and loyal ambassador to our brand,” Dave Pericak, global director of Ford Performance, said in a statement. “Greg has achieved many milestones with us and no matter where his career path takes him from here, he’ll always be a welcome member of the Ford family.” Biffle’s exit leaves Roush with two drivers, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. in the No. 17 and Trevor Bayne in the No. 6. There was no immediate word on what would become of Biffle’s No. 16 team, which has a charter that either needs to be used by Roush, leased to another team or surrendered. Also last week, reported that Robbie Reiser, the general manager and a longtime leader at Roush Fenway, has been relieved of his duties. And Zest soap, one of the sponsors of Stenhouse’s No. 17, announced that it would not return in 2017.

Mark Martin won 40 Cup races during his career, along with 49 Xfinity wins and seven victories in trucks.

Over the years, as one teammate after another left Roush Fenway Racing for driving positions elsewhere, Greg Biffle remained loyal to Jack Roush, who first hired Biffle in 1998 to race in the Camping World Truck Series. Last week, that unusually long run came to an end as Biffle and Roush Fenway announced in a team release that they’d be parting ways.

NASCAR CEO Brian France acknowledges complex issues confronting sport agreement and an important agreement,” he said. “It’s not just dollars and cents, but it’s a fit for us… “We’re in a good spot with that, I believe, but we’ll have to see how it finally plays out.” France was asked about how his support of President-elect Donald Trump would mix with the sport’s celebration of its first Mexican-born champion Daniel Suarez, but he cut the question short. “I’ll stop you right there,” he told NBC Sports reporter Dustin Long. “First of all, nobody wants to hear my political views ... so I won’t be talking about that. “But on my diversity, nobody, nobody in this company, has worked harder, done more and resourced it better than me. I founded the Diversity Council. I fought for every single thing that makes sense, because that’s my core belief about diversity. It’s very, very important. I talk about it frequently. “And my efforts there should never be challenged, no matter what my political views might be. That’s a ridiculous thing to do.” France also hinted that there could be a fourth auto manufacturer joining Chevrolet, Ford and Toyota in the sport. “Yes, yes, but we’re not in a position to make that announcement,” he said. And, France said he feels good in general about the future of the sport. “I’m happy with the health of the sport,” he said. “Would I obviously like to have everything perfect? Of course I would. But that’s sports. That’s a competitive business.”

NASCAR Chairman and CEO Brian France held his annual end-of-season question-andanswer session with the media at Homestead-Miami Speedway and discussed several topics, including declining TV ratings and the search for a title sponsor to replace Sprint, which will not return as the namesake sponsor of the elite Cup series. Brian France France said the TV ratings for Cup races, which have hit multi-year lows for several events this year, as well as empty seats at many venues, are not unlike what’s being seen in other sports. “You’re seeing TV ratings slide all over the place in sports, right?” he said. “You’re seeing all kinds of things happen in TV ratings. “The big events, they go one way, the digital audience is consuming things different. We’re no different from that. It’s not a surprise on that. “Attendance has been fine. ... We don’t have Jeff Gordon and Dale Earnhardt (Jr.).

Sprint Cup wins by Petty Enterprises — the most of any team

Toyota makes it a clean sweep Chevrolet drivers won two of the three major NASCAR driving championships as Jimmie Johnson won in the Cup Series and Johnny Sauter took the Camping World Truck Series crown. But when it came to the manufacturer’s title, Toyota swept all three divisions, including the Xfinity Series, where one of its drivers, Daniel Suarez, also took the driving title. Toyota’s Cup title was its first in 10 years of competition. Its drivers won 16 of the 36 points-paying races. “Capturing our first Cup Series manufacturer’s title is a tremendous accomplishment, and one that has been a goal for Toyota since entering the series 10 years ago as underdogs in this ultra-competitive series,” Ed Laukes, vice president of integrated marketing operations for Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A., said in a statement. “With the partnership of great teams like Joe Gibbs Racing and Furniture Row Racing, Toyota has been able to break through and become the first different manufacturer to earn this championship in 13 seasons. Toyota has now won manufacturer’s championships in all three NASCAR national touring series, and to have reached this amazing milestone really speaks to Toyota’s commitment to not only NASCAR, but also to motorsports endeavors around the globe.” Five drivers contributed to the win total, with Kyle Busch and Martin Truex Jr. leading the way with four apiece. Carl Edwards and Denny Hamlin had three wins each, while Matt Kenseth had two.

What’s next for Bulldogs and Rebels? I called it last week in my Friday picks. Mississippi State will win against Ole Miss. I also mentioned that it hurt me inside to make that choice because I am a Rebel fan. But I’m also realistic: Kent something my Mohundro son gets upset with me for ocSports Editor casionally because he wants to believe the best for Ole Miss. And I get that because I am an optomist at heart and never intentionally pick against the red and blue just because the odds say that’s the thing to do. By the way, the Rebs were a seven-point favorite head-

ing into each of their final two games against Vanderbilt and the Bulldogs. I picked them to win against the ’Dores but after seeing the way they played in Nashville, and all the other negative fodder surrounding the program currently, I had a gut instinct that led me to believe they didn’t have the makeup or passion to whip the ’Dogs for a third straight year. My instinct turned into reality shortly after dark Saturday in Oxford after MSU put a collosal 55-20 beatdown on the home team. Only two short years ago, both of these programs were living the high life of college football by being ranked simultaneously in the first College Football Playoff Poll of 2014. The Bulldogs and Rebels

had seemingly escaped mediocrity and moved into a penthouse apartment in the SEC West. The Rebels won two in a row against Alabama, and State came out of nowhere to be ranked No. 1 in the country for a few weeks: until they ran into the Tide and Ole Miss. Now here we are, back to reality again for both teams. They both finished 5-7 but the Bulldogs get to enjoy it more due to their Egg Bowl victory and the news that — even with a losing record — they’ll be invited to a lower-tier bowl. That’s another thing that bothers me: being awarded with a bowl game for being a so-so team. Having a breakeven season or posting a losing record would have meant you’re home for the holidays when I was growing up. There

were far fewer bowls and you actually had to win at least seven or eight games to get into a bowl. Now teams are going “bowling” with five and six wins. The very reason Mississippi State is getting this opportunity is that several high profile leagues — like the Big 12 and even Conference USA — don’t have enough teams with at least six victories. There are 40 bowls at the present: that’s 80 slots. There are only 128 Division I schools. You do the math. What’s wrong with this picture. The bottom line is there are simply too many bowl games. Back in the ’70s and ’80s — when I was in school — there were between 20 to 25 bowl Please see NEXT | 13A

Grizzlies guard Conley out for 6 weeks The Associated Press

The Memphis Grizzlies now have taken their biggest hit yet this season with star guard Mike Conley the latest to land on the injury list. The Grizzlies announced Tuesday that Conley will miss at least six weeks after being diagnosed with fractures of the transverse process bones in the vertebrae of his lower back. Conley will be re-evaluated in four weeks.

The guard signed a five-year, $153 million contract in July to stay with the Grizzlies. Conley was hurt Monday night during the third quarter of a 104-85 loss to Charlotte after taking a charge from Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. He went down hard on his back and stayed on the floor in obvious pain before leaving the game. He did not return. He is Memphis’ leading scorer. He is averaging 19.2 points

and 5.7 assists and has helped the Grizzlies to an 11-7 start putting them fifth in the Western Conference. Memphis plays at Toronto on Wednesday night. Memphis also announced that Vince Carter strained his right hip flexor in the game against Charlotte. Carter left early in the fourth quarter and didn’t return. He traveled with the Grizzlies to Toronto and is questionable for Wednesday night’s game.

This is the franchise that set an NBA record using 28 players last season as injuries piled up, causing the Grizzlies to limp into the postseason as the No. 7 seed in the West before being swept by San Antonio. Firstyear coach David Fizdale has been busy mixing and matching lineups with a variety of injuries already this season. The Grizzlies already had Please see GRIZZLIES | 13A

Peyton Manning shows up to talk with Eli & Co. The Associated Press

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Peyton Manning finally found some time in retirement to get together with little brother Eli. Peyton showed up at the Giants’ walk-through workout Tuesday and discussed football, sat through part of a quarterbacks’ meeting and talked about playing against the Steelers, New York’s opponent this weekend in Pittsburgh. Eli Manning was unaware his brother was going to show up at

the team’s facility, but he noted it was nice to see him. The Giants (8-3) have won six straight games — their longest streak since 2008 — and have a great chance to make the playoffs for the first time since 2011. “It was good to have him here,” Eli Manning said. “I hadn’t seen him in a while. He has something to do tomorrow, so he popped in and sat in on a few meetings with us today. Just good to catch up. I’ll get some time with him later on.”

Peyton Manning, dressed in pajamas, did a commercial before the season for DirecTV in which he had a hard time seeing Eli because his younger brother was playing on the days he wanted to meet. Eli Manning said Peyton seems to be adjusting to life after football, adding that he is staying busy and enjoying his down time. However, the longtime Giants quarterback said it’s obvious his brother enjoys being around

football. “I think when he gets in this environment, he was kind of drilling the coaches on questions,” Manning said. “I know he liked being in there and doing a little install on Pittsburgh. I’m sure he misses that environment, just the game plan, how you’re going to do things, how you’re going to deal with protections, how you’re going to pick things up, just really getting Please see MANNING | 13A

Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll oďŹ&#x20AC;er this one final thought and leave it alone for now. How can the NCAA money-makers and shakers seriously believe that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll make money oďŹ&#x20AC; a Mississippi State-Charlotte matchup in the Papa Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bowl (this is not a real game yet: itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just an example of what could happen)? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure Bulldog fans would eat those tickets up and ask for more. The stadium may not even be half full for a game like that, on top of which is the issue of TV ratings. That would be a joke. The only people who would be watching a matchup like that would be Bulldog and 49er fans: and a handful of bowl junkies who just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get enough football. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make money with bowl games like that, and I sincerely hope the powers-that-be in the NCAA are considering eliminating about 10 to 15 of the current bowls so â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bowl Seasonâ&#x20AC;? would mean something again.

Neither Mississippi State nor Ole Miss played well enough this season to win six games, although I do remind you the Rebels played a much tougher schedule. It was ranked the second-toughest in the country at the beginning of the season. They also had huge leads on Florida State and Alabama before they eventually blew second half leads. They beat a solid, bowl-bound Georgia squad by 31 points earlier in the year. They even got redemption against a pretty good Memphis team thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also bowl bound and just beat

Houston, which who beat Louisville the week before. The Bulldogs lost at home to South Alabama in week one, had to rally to beat UMass, and gave up 41 points to Samford. They did claim wins against South Carolina and Texas A&M, but were annhialated against Alabama and Auburn. So where do these two teams go from here? The first thing that needs to happen at Ole Miss before anything gets better is the NCAA investigation needs to come to an end, or at least give an indication of what to expect. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a nightmare for Rebel-nation and not knowing anything after this long is beginning to wear on the team, coaches, administration and fans. Recruits are dropping their commitments and athletic director Ross Bjork just released a personally-written letter to the Ole Miss fan base and alumni yesterday explaining the state of the Ole Miss football program. There will be a thorough evaluation of every position within the organization and some changes are inevitable, starting with the search for a new defensive coordinator. In Starkville, I can see a few changes coming as well, but it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be as drastic as those happening in Oxford. Many of us saw a drop-oďŹ&#x20AC; coming for State due to the departure of Dak Prescott and several other seniors that helped put the Bulldogs in the national spotlight the past two years. The challenge begins now for both programs to reestablish themselves as upper-tier SEC West contenders, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe for a minute thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gonna happen overnight. But it can still happen, and I believe it will. I truly hope both Mississippi State and Ole Miss will bounce back quickly. I believe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll happen a little faster for the Rebels since the talent level already on the roster is a cut above the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Dogs. Hey, just being real here. But unless the SEC â&#x20AC;&#x153;cloudâ&#x20AC;? disappears soon, things may remain cloudy in Oxford a little while longer.

back into that flow of things. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure it is a little reminder of how special it is to be in this situation.â&#x20AC;? Manning said his brother will watch his games and send him text messages afterward, telling him he made a good throw on some play or asking questions about certain plays or what the oďŹ&#x20AC;ense was running. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of always been the case,â&#x20AC;? Manning said, adding the two have always tried

to watch each other play. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good communication about what is going on.â&#x20AC;? The Giantsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; oďŹ&#x20AC;ense can use some help. It has scored 231 points this season, which is 21st in the league. There has been no consistency. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just a few plays away,â&#x20AC;? Manning said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You score 21, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not like we scored 10. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just not getting down in the red zone enough. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the deal.â&#x20AC;? The Giants tried to switch things up last week and go

with the deep ball. Manning threw six long passes against the Cleveland Browns in a 27-13 win, but he hit only one. Stepping up this week will be important when facing Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers (6-5), winners of two straight. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have our expectations of what we want to do and how we want to score,â&#x20AC;? Manning said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We feel we can score. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been good the last few weeks protecting

the ball, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s number one. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not about forcing things trying to score. We have to execute well, play smart and make the plays that are there.â&#x20AC;? The Giants have made enough plays to get back in the playoďŹ&#x20AC; hunt this season with five games to go. In the last three seasons, New York has had little to play for down the home stretch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can get spoiled early in your career when four years in a row you make the

playoďŹ&#x20AC;s,â&#x20AC;? Manning said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You assume that is kind of the norm. You play long enough you realize it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. It is special to be in contention to make the playoďŹ&#x20AC;s, and especially after the last couple being out early.â&#x20AC;? Notes: The Giants placed RB Orleans Darkwa on injured reserve with a leg injury. LB-S Eric Pinkins was signed oďŹ&#x20AC; the practice squad to take his spot on the roster. ... G Brett Jones, who injured a calf in a start against Cincin-

nati on Nov. 14, hopes to return to practice Wednesday. ... Starting LG Justin Pugh had a setback last week trying to return from a strained knee and seemingly will be out a little longer. ... Manning said he apologized to rookie WR Sterling Shepard for not targeting him in last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game. ... PK Robbie Gould took the blame for missing his third PAT in the past two games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just missed it. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have that, especially when you are trying to make the playoďŹ&#x20AC;s.â&#x20AC;?

been playing without their top free agent signee this oďŹ&#x20AC;season with Chandler Parsons, who Memphis announced Nov. 20 would miss at least two weeks with a bone bruise in his left knee. Parsons, signed to a $94 million contract in July, has played only six games for Memphis and is averaging 7.7 points in those games. Forward Brandan Wright had arthroscopic ankle surgery Nov. 15 to clean up his left ankle with no timetable for his return. He played only 12 games last season in his first with Memphis, and he hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t played in a game since Oct. 6 in the preseason. Zach Randolph hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t played since his mother died on Thanksgiving Day, and is on personal leave. Forward James Ennis has not played since straining a calf muscle Nov. 21 in a win at Charlotte.

comfort Shake off winterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chill with a hot, spiced cider BY THE CULINARY INSTITUTE OF AMERICA After a snowy walk or long day on the slopes, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing like curling up under a warm EODQNHW0D\EH\RXKDYHDÂżUHJRLQJDQGWKH dog asleep at your feet, with a good book just within reach. But before you can relax, you need to warm up those cold hands and chilled bones. Before you settle in for your long winterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nap, stir up this hot cider cocktail, featured at The Tavern at American Bounty at our campus in Hyde Park, New York. Hot cocktails are inspired by the classic hot toddy, a curative mixture dating back centuries that includes whiskey, rum, or brandy with hot water, a sweetener, and sometimes some spicing. However you like your hot toddy, it should be soothing and comforting on a cold day. In fact, hot toddies made with spirits, honey, and lemon juice are often used to ease the symptoms from our seasonal colds and coughs. Our cider cocktail recipe begins with alPRQGĂ&#x20AC;DYRUHGDPDUHWWRDQGKRWDSSOHFLGHU Bitters are added to help balance the sweetness from the cider (and the caramel sauce and whipped cream weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll add later). Bitters are a blend of naturally sour or bitter botanical Ă&#x20AC;DYRUV²OLNHRUDQJHSHHORUKHUEV,QFRFNtails, they add a concentrated dose of bitterQHVVZLWKRXWGLOXWLQJWKHSULPDU\Ă&#x20AC;DYRUVLQWKH drink. There are no rules when it comes to a hot cocktail, and this recipe can be reformulated to suit your mood or the contents of your liquor cabinet. In place of amaretto, you can use any of your favorite spirits, like whiskey or apple brandy. If you like infused spirits or syrups (a great make-at-home holiday gift), a hot cocktail LVWKHSHUIHFWZD\WRVKRZWKHPRĚ&#x2020;&LQQDPRQ infused bourbon or cardamom-infused simple syrup are great starts to making this recipe your own. Hot cocktails are the perfect treat for a little bit of quiet time, but they are also an excellent make-ahead recipe when you are hosting winter parties. They can be mixed and kept warm in a crock pot or on the stovetop over a YHU\ORZĂ&#x20AC;DPH%HVXUHWRSXWVRPHRIWKHKRW apple cider aside before adding the amaretto, for children and guests who choose not to partake. Garnish your party drinks with freshly made whipped cream, our caramel sauce, and a cinnamon stick for a particularly Instagramworthy presentation.

A little sugar goes a long way in fluffy, fancy pavlova BY MELISSA Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ARABIAN Associated Press

Pavlovas are dreamy. For the uninitiated, a pavlova (named after the IDPHGEDOOHULQDÂśVĂ&#x20AC;XĚ&#x2020;\WXWX LVHVVHQtially a meringue shell baked at low heat until the outside is barely golden crisp, but the inside remains soft and billowy, like a creamy marshmalORZ7KHVKHOOWKHQLVW\SLFDOO\ÂżOOHG with whipped cream, custard, or fruit compote. And, as mentioned, the result is a dream-come-true. Pavlovas are a splendid choice for entertaining, because contrary to what we might think of a delicate meringue, these guys are pretty hardy, and you can make them a day or two in advance. (Just be sure to keep them in an airtight container.) As you probably know, meringues are primarily two ingredients: egg whites and sugar. In this the good cop/bad cop pairing, VXJDULVGHÂżQLWHO\WKHEDGFRS while egg whites are considered downright health food. The sugar is what gives the pavlovas their luscious interior. So I wondered: Just how low I could go on the sugar without ruining the texture? The answer: surprisingly quite

low. A typical pavlova recipe might have a ratio of 1/4 cup of sugar per egg white in the recipe. I found that I could cut the sugar in half with no noticeable impact on texture and taste.

Tangy raspberry pavlova with balsamic glaze Start to finish: 90 minutes, including inactive time; Servings: 8 3 egg whites 1/4 cup sugar (The recipe will work with as little as 2 tablespoons of sugar, but texture of pavlova

will be less lush.) 1/2 teaspoon white vinegar 1 teaspoon corn starch 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/4 teaspoon almond extract Topping: 1 cup light sour cream 2 tablespoons maple syrup 1 cup raspberries (or other fruit) 1-2 tablespoons balsamic glaze (reduced balsamic vinegar) for drizzling fresh mint leaves, chopped, for garnish (optional)

Preheat oven to 275 F. In a stand PL[HUÂżWWHGZLWKDZKLVNDWWDFKPHQW beat eggs on medium speed until foamy, about 1 minutes.

(You can use a hand mixer, but times may be a little longer.) Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spoon the meringue into 8 even, round piles. Use the back of a tablespoon to spread the meringue into circles about 1/2-inch tall, and approximately 3-inches wide. Use the spoon to create a gentle depression in the center of the meringue. Bake for 20 minutes. Keeping the oven door closed, WXUQRĚ&#x2020;WKHKHDWEXWOHDYHWKH pavlovas in the oven for another hour. Remove the pavlovas from the oven and allow to cool completely.

Top with berries and a drizzle of balsamic glaze. Top with a sprinkle of mint leaves, if desired.

Some communication goes a long way WIZARD OF ID





Dear Annie: I have a handsome 23-year-old son who has been dealing with Asperger’s syndrome for about 20 years. He has grown from a very young child who didn’t look at or talk to people other than the family to a young man who can even share small talk with people, attend college and be a successful track and field athlete. However, he still has a terrible time knowing how to act around women, and he observes people around him for clues. He recently received a phone call from the campus police asking him to stop by. A woman had reported him because she felt uncomfortable around him at a dance. He had danced with her, sat and talked with her, and gotten her some punch, but then he put his arm around her. He did this because that’s what he had observed while watching other guys and girls. He felt terrible because he really liked her and is still missing the friendship that could have been. In the next day or two, another woman complained to the campus police. He and this other girl had a class together and had talked a few times. She accused him of stalking her. But what she said was “stalking” was his knowing a few things about her that he had gotten from her Facebook page — and she had accepted his friend re-

Dear Annie quest. He was banned from all the dorms and ordered to stay away from these two women. There was an appeal process, and the school lifted the ban on the dorms after everyone understood that with Asperger’s, a person doesn’t read body language or facial expressions very well. He went to the speech pathology department last year for coaching about social situations. Now, after this involvement with campus police, the Title IX department — which we didn’t know existed — has gotten involved. It has some classes that will help him to understand body language and facial expressions. I hope this will help him, but I also hope and pray that people, especially women, will give him a chance. Please tell women that if someone has made them uncomfortable, they should gently but firmly tell the person, “You are making me uncomfortable because I don’t know you that well.” My son would never hurt anyone, but these women ended up hurting him deeply. And as I’m his mother, they hurt me, too. — Heartbroken Again Dear Heartbroken:

Thank you for sharing your son’s story. Although I would never fault young women for removing themselves from situations that feel unsafe, it sounds as if these two women simply felt awkward. A little communication can go a long way in such cases. We should all be compassionate and keep in mind that we have no idea the struggles a stranger may be going through. I wish your son all the best. Dear Annie: I realize you meant well with your response to “Girl Who’s Gotta Eat,” whose co-worker was bothered by her frequent snacking. However, as the parent of a child who has been diagnosed with an auditory processing disorder, I think you should have gone further and researched misophonia. This is one of the perils and costs of the open-office trend. Your reader with the high metabolism has needs. However, they may not be on the same level as a fellow employee who has a genuine psychological or medical condition. Perhaps a less flip answer and additional research on your part are in order. A more holistic perspective might call into question the employer’s need to optimize employee performance in an open-office work area. — Think Again
