Staff report

Donations are still needed for the annual Christmas Basket Fund. The fundraising goal is set at $23,000 to support the program, which provides around 1,000 baskets filled with food and paper products for those in the community who meet the requirements. As in years past, donations from the community are crucial for the event to be a success, said Daily Corinthian Publisher Reece Terry. The newspaper partners with the Corinth Rotary Club each year for the Christmas Basket Fund program. Donations can be dropped off at the Daily Corinthian office on Harper Road or mailed to Daily Corinthian Christmas Basket Fund, P.O. Box 1800, Corinth, MS 38835. Please see BASKETS | 2

Deadline for adopting children is Dec. 12 Holiday parade season begins BY KIMBERLY SHELTON

Heralding in a joyous holiday season, the city of Iuka and the Pickwick, Tenn. community will kick off local Christmas parades at 6 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 2. The Annual Corinth/Alcorn County Christmas Parade will follow at 5 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 3. This year’s theme will be “Rockin’ Around the Block.” These three holiday parades are the first of 10 parades in the Crossroads area. “Our Board of Directors felt the theme was appropriate since the parade is mainly held around the downtown blocks,” Please see PARADES | 5


“Our community is so awesome. I can put it in the paper and say I have 40 children who haven’t been brought back and they’ll come and adopt them right then. I’ll have them adopted in a couple of hours.”

The Corinth Salvation Army is in full swing this holiday season with a revamped Angel Tree program and a new Christmas event. The annual Angel Tree is now in place in Corinth Walmart. The tree gives community members a chance to provide a better Christmas for a local child by adopting an angel from the tree. The deadline for adopting one of the Angel Tree children is Monday, Dec. 12. Because of trouble in the past with the angels disappearing and no one showing up to provide a gift for that angel’s corresponding child, the Salvation Army has decided to implement a new system. “What we’re doing this year is, the Angel Tree tags

Michelle Miles Salvation Army director will have a child’s name and code number, with a letter instructing whoever adopts the child to call a separate phone number — our Angel Tree hotline — and we will give them the child’s clothing sizes and shoe sizes and be able to make contact with the person who is adopting the child,” explained Salvation Army Director Michelle Miles. The new system was put in

place after problems in previous years left Salvation Army workers scrambling to find gifts for kids at the last minute. But in a town with a heart as big as Corinth’s, Miles said, this wasn’t too big of a crisis. “Last year fully 40 percent of our Angel Tree children weren’t brought back. So we really had to hustle the week Please see ANGEL | 2

South Harper Road motorists encountered a new traffic signal Wednesday morning. The intersection with Legacy Drive (formerly Tecumseh Way) and Getwell Road just south of the Corinth city limits returned to full signalization at 10:35 a.m. At 3 p.m., there had been no mishaps, and officials were hopeful that would continue to be the case through the late afternoon traffic. Sheriff Ben Caldwell had deputies at the intersection after the activation. He asks drivers to be extra cautious. “Even if it’s green, watch what you’re doing and make sure the other traffic is stopping,” he said. The Mississippi Department of Transportation provided two electronic signs displaying “Caution: Active signal ahead” to help call attention to the new traffic control. The sign facing the southbound traffic is positioned to be seen before vehicles top the hill approaching the intersection. The signs are expected to be in place through the weekend. After Tecumseh shut down, the full signalization was removed and replaced with a flashing caution light. Full signalization is back due to an increase in industrial traffic.

Author releases companion Pusser novel BY KIMBERLY SHELTON

Concluding a project six months in the making, author Robert D. Broughton has released a companion to his first Buford Pusser novel. Much like its predecessor, “Ghost Tales of the State Line Mob,” the Cleveland, Tennessee, resident’s newest book is filled with headlines from local newspapers as well as photographs and artifacts from Sheriff Pusser’s birth (Dec. 12, 1936) to his death (Aug. 21, 1974). Just shy of 600 pages, “Sheriff Buford Pusser, Head-

lines and Pictorial History” chronologically follows the McNairy County, Tennessee, native from some of the first arBroughton ticles written about him in 1956 to the competing of Adamsville High School in the Sweet 16 State Championships. It also relates the story of a time he transported a pregnant mother in labor to the hospital. “There are the moonshine

still busts and raids on various night clubs, but a lot of the other documents included in the book show the sheriff dealing with the effects of a devastating tornado, chasing bank robbers or dealing with the tragedy of automobile accidents,” said Broughton of his latest work. “The book will give readers a broader and more personal look at his career as a lawman. It will also provide better insight into the makings of the legend in ‘Walking Tall’.” “Walking Tall” is the movie trilogy released in the early 1970s which made Pusser fa-

mous. Officially released on Friday, Nov. 18, the substantial tome is composed of approximately 1,200 documents, many of which are fragile and easily damaged by camera flash. “‘Ghost Tales of the State Line Mob’ is derived from over 40,000 documents, artifacts, photographs and interviews. So there was no way I could stuff all that information into one book,” said Broughton. “Sheriff Buford Pusser, Headlines “Since I did not focus on Sher- and Pictorial History,” written by Robiff Pusser as a main character, ert D.

before Christmas trying to get the children taken care of,” explained Miles. “Our community is so awesome. I can put it in the paper and say I have 40 children who haven’t been brought back and they’ll come and adopt them right then. I’ll have them adopted in a couple of hours.” While the community can always be counted on to come through in a pinch, Miles said the new system this year has been set up to cut down on some of the confusion. This Christmas will also see a new event that organizer hope will become a regular part of the holiday season. The first annual Night with Santa will be held at the National Guard Armory on Saturday, Dec. 17, beginning at 5 p.m.

All the Angel Tree children and the family members in their households will receive an invitation in the mail to the Night with Santa. With the Armory decorated as the North Pole, event participants will have a sit-down Christmas dinner. Kids will be able to wear their Christmas pajamas and have milk and cookies with Santa Claus. “Every child will get to visit with Santa, and we’re going to have chicken and dressing and food for the kids and food for their families,” said Miles. “It’s going to be a great, great time to get together and be able to fellowship with these children and their families.” Later in the evening Bro. Dan Jones, the youth minister at Tate Baptist Church, will speak to the children about the meaning of Christmas and share the story of Christ’s

birth. “We want to be able to have the opportunity to witness to these children and their families,” said Miles. The Salvation Army is also seeking volunteers for its Christmas bellringers to tend the organization’s signature red fundraising kettles. “We can always use volunteers for bell ringers. That’s a very important part of the Salvation Army,” said Miles. “Our kettles are the only fundraiser we do all year long. That money funds our social service programs and allows us to keep our doors open to continue to serve the community.”

the book that stands out as making me especially proud, but it pleases me immensely that people read the stories and contact me, telling me they like the book and how it has brought back memories,” he added. “I particularly enjoy when people say they feel like they are part of the story and want to share more.” Having now finished up his book on the subject, the “Krispy Kritter” author is on to other projects. “I am currently working on a book which is going to be titled ‘Louise, (Hathcock) Queen of the State Line Mob’. It will be more detailed about her life, her struggles through it and ultimately, her death,” he said. “Another book I currently have on the burner is about Charles Russell Hamilton, the serial killer from Chewalla, Tennessee. “I have the largest collection of artifacts, documents on him at my disposal. Both books will be co-written with Revonda Kirby,” said the author. Now available on the “Sheriff Buford Pusser, Headlines and Pictorial History” will set readers back $27.99. The book is also available at the Sheriff Buford Pusser Home & Museum for $34.99 and can be ordered through Barnes & Noble. A book signing will be held for both of Broughton’s Pusser novels from

10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at on Saturday, Dec. 3, at the museum. The author will be on hand to autograph them. “The first one, ‘Ghost Tales of the State Line Mob’, came out in June and we have sold nearly 500 copies. It is the most factual book that has been written to date about the evil force that Buford Pusser was fighting against during his years as sheriff from 1964-70,” said Museum Curator Tina Mullis. “The book is loaded with court documents, photos, etc. proving the facts. It will be available during the book signing for $29.99.” As an extra incentive to those considering attending the book signing, descendants of the State Line Mob will be present. Karen Jones, Jack and Louise Hathcock’s granddaughter, and Pee Wee Walker’s three daughters will be there along with Dwana Pusser, daughter of the late McNairy County sheriff. Dwana Pusser has also written a book about her “Daddy” called “Walking On” which she will also be signing at the event. The cost to purchase is $23.

(Anyone who wishes to volunteer should call the Corinth Salvation Army at 287-6979 and ask for Michelle Miles or Ashley Rhodes.)


I did not use all the documents I had on him, nor did I spend any time writing about his personal life in detail.” “For Pusser fans this book incorporates a lot of missing details in his career as a Sheriff, FBI reports, warrants, and other such documents,” he continued. “You get to see both sides of what was said about Sheriff Pusser in the newspapers – the good, bad and ugly.” Compelled to write the novel after being asked by Sheriff Buford Pusser Home & Museum Curator Tina Mullis in May 2016, Broughton’s newest contribution was conceived as a way to preserve displayed museum artifacts in a book for guests. “What I like about this book is it buttresses the documents and stories in ‘Ghost Tales of The State Line Mob’ and gives credence to the work done on the stories concerning Sheriff Pusser,” said the author. “These stories are not only compelling, but they give a deeper understanding of the rich history of the state line and the struggles that people endured from the 40s to the 70s.” “I don’t think there is one singular aspect of

WHO IS JESUS AND WHAT DID HE DO? (Continued from 11/7) In Revelation 1:5 the Apostle John said of Jesus Christ, ”[he] is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth.” In an earlier article, we looked at the concept of Jesus as a faithful witness of the Father; how he came to earth, and, in every way, perfectly represented God to man. Additionally, John refers to Jesus as “the first begotten of the dead.”(King James Version) The resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead is a declaration that he is the Son of God. (Romans 1:4). What greater statement could be made from heaven about the identity of Jesus than to, first of all, declare that he would be crucified; and secondly, that he would be raised from the dead on the third day, and that both came to pass exactly as has been foretold?! (Mark 8:32, Mark 9:31, Mark 10:32-34, Luke 24:44-47, Acts 2:2236) Christianity is the religion of a Resurrected Redeemer. The resurrection was at the center of the message preached by the first century evangelists. (Acts 2:22-36, Acts 3:12 -16, Acts 4:10) When Paul and Silas were in Thessalonica on the second journey preaching the gospel, they “reasoned with them out of the scriptures, opening and alleging (explaining and demonstrating) that Christ must needs have suffered, and risen again from the dead; and that this Jesus, whom I preach unto you, is Christ.” (Acts 17:1-4) The force of the evidence presented to the Thessalonians demanded a verdict. The Old Testament record was laid alongside the events surrounding the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, and the hearers were led to the undeniable conclusion that Jesus of Nazareth was indeed the Christ of God, “and some of them believed.” The resurrection of Jesus Christ is also proof positive that there is life beyond the grave. After identifying more than five hundred eyewitnesses of the Resurrected Redeemer, Paul reasons in I Corinthians 15:6,7, “For if the dead rise not, then is Christ not raised: and if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.” Further, verse twenty affirms: “But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.” “But thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”(1 Corinthians 15:57) We invite you to come and learn about the victory in Jesus at the Danville church of Christ.

Today in History

Daily Corinthian • 3

Across the Region

Today is Thursday, Dec. 1, the 336th day of 2016. There are 30 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlights in History: On Dec. 1, 1941, Japan’s Emperor Hirohito approved waging war against the United States, Britain and the Netherlands after his government rejected U.S. demands contained in the Hull Note. British-born journalist and broadcaster Alistair Cooke became a naturalized American citizen.

On this date: In 1862, President Abraham Lincoln sent his Second Annual Message to Congress, in which he called for the abolition of slavery, and went on to say, “Fellow-citizens, we can not escape history. We of this Congress and this Administration will be remembered in spite of ourselves.� In 1955, Rosa Parks, a black seamstress, was arrested after refusing to give up her seat to a white man on a Montgomery, Alabama, city bus; the incident sparked a year-long boycott of the buses by blacks. In 1965, an airlift of refugees from Cuba to the United States began in which thousands of Cubans were allowed to leave their homeland. In 1990, British and French workers digging the Channel Tunnel between their countries finally met after knocking out a passage in a service tunnel.





Tollison wins justice court runoff election

Company expands, adds new jobs to facility

Mississippi State names alumni fellows

Residence honored with Fant Chair

BOONEVILLE — Richard Tollison will be Prentiss County’s newest justice court judge. Tollison topped Tara Green Lauderdale in Tuesday’s runoff election for Justice Court Judge North with a total of 788 votes to Green’s total of 748. Tollison won the special election which was held to fill the vacant post of Justice Court Judge North. The post was declared vacant at the beginning of the year with the start of the current terms for county officeholders. Former Judge Debra Moore was the lone candidate to qualify to run for the post in last year’s county general election, but withdrew after the qualifying deadline due to health reasons, leaving no one on the ballot. State law did not allow anyone to be added to the ballot after the qualifying deadline, so the post became vacant at the beginning of the year. Moore’s husband Trent Moore has served as interim judge until the special election could be held. Tollison will serve out the remaining approximately three years left in the current term. Â

SAVANNAH, Tenn. — Tennessee Economic and Community Development Commissioner Randy Boyd announced this week that the Wise Company manufacturer will create 74 new jobs and expand its current facility in Savannah. The Wise Company is a leading American boat seat manufacturer. Boyd said they plan on starting construction on the new facility on Dec. 10. They will also be adding a second shift to the factory with this expansion.  

STARKVILLE — Eight prominent graduates now living as close as Madison County and as distant as Southern California are Mississippi State University’s 2016 Alumni Fellows. For more than a quartercentury, the fellows program has brought former students of distinction back to campus to meet with those currently enrolled and share experiences of their successful careers. Fellows carry the designation for life. They gathered on campus Nov. 3-5. The group also met with faculty and staff members. Sponsored and organized by the MSU Alumni Association, the annual recognition includes one representative from each college of the 138-year-old land-grant institution. They are chosen by their respective academic units to make presentations in both classroom and informal settings. “The Alumni Association proudly works with the academic colleges of Mississippi State to bring dedicated alumni back to our campus to share their success stories, mentor and enrich the lives of current students,� said Jeff Davis, the international organization’s executive director. “Through the years, we have had many top-caliber graduates selected as Alumni Fellows, and the annual experience strengthens this group’s ties with our campus and enables them to become stronger alumni leaders from this point forward,� Davis added. (For detailed biographies of the 2016 alumni fellows, along with information about the MSU Alumni Association and its programs, visit alumni.msstate. edu.)

OXFORD — Part of the attraction of a college town is enjoying nationally- and internationally-known speakers and musicians. Acclaimed concert pianist Bruce Levingston, the Chancellor’s Honors College Artist-in-Residence, brings many eminent guests to the University of Mississippi. The educational and cultural opportunities Levingston has added to the Oxford campus have prompted another title to be added to his name: He has been selected as holder of the Lester Glenn Fant Chair endowed by Lester “Ruff� Glenn Fant III of Washington, D.C. Fant committed a gift to create the endowed faculty position in memory of his father and grandfather. Ruff Fant’s father was a law professor at Ole Miss for three decades. “Bruce Levingston is truly a treasure for our university and for our state,� Chancellor Jeffrey Vitter said. “I cannot think of a more fitting person to serve as the inaugural recipient of the Lester Glenn Fant Chair. Both the Fant family and Bruce play a significant role in helping our university achieve the highest levels of excellence. “We are extremely appreciative of the ongoing support of the Fant family. And we applaud Bruce’s tremendous talent, teaching excellence, national stature and the extraordinary opportunities he brings to our university community.� The Lester Glenn Fant Chair is open to accept gifts from individuals and organizations. Checks can be made out to the University of Mississippi Foundation, with the Fant Chair noted in the memo line, and mailed to 406 University Avenue, Oxford, MS, 38655; or by visiting online at umfoundation. com/makeagift/.

Belmont Tishomingo city goes smoke-free BELMONT — Belmont is the latest Tishomingo County city to enact a public smoking ban, set to begin today. The ban will restrict smoking to outdoor areas no closer than 15 feet from any entrance at any public building including restaurants, stores and other businesses.  With the ban, Belmont joins more than 100 other cities and towns throughout Mississippi to go smoke-free in public places.

Tupelo Inmates back behind bars after escape TUPELO — Two men who escaped the Lee County Jail 10 days ago found themselves back behind bars on Tuesday. In addition to their original burglary charges, Michael B. Patterson, 31, of Mantachie, and Mickey Joe Williams, 36, of Randolph, now face grand larceny and felony escape charges, according to The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal. The jail trusties are believed to have cut a hole in the fence and escaped on Nov. 19. They followed the railroad tracks north to Saltillo, where they stole a work truck from a business in the industrial park. The men were given $40 from a friend in Mooreville the following morning and were spotted on camera with a third man at the New Albany Walmart that night. The truck was found abandoned on Interstate 22 on Nov. 23. Officials say two other men are in custody, facing possible charges of assisting Patterson and Williams while they were on the run.

Corinth, Miss.

Lucinda lived flat-out Lucinda deserves an obituary. She was an unforgettable little dickens. Not even 20 pounds, such a mix that no breed dominated, the dog that appeared last Thanksgiving and didn’t Rheta make it quite a year, left an Johnson indelible mark on my soul. I think it was her athleticism, Columnist the ability to jump into bed beside me before anyone could stop her. She was a spooner. In less than a year she demolished two sofas and started on a third. Once I came in from a short trip and it looked as if a Mardi Gras parade had marched through the living room. Beds, pillows, anything soft and pliable was at risk. She often made her way to the middle of the dining table, cat-like, when nobody was around. Instinctively Lucinda knew she needed to be up high, the better to protect herself. At night she slept in a pink crate without protest but made up for that confinement by tearing about all day at warp speed. She was not a beauty. Other than a perpetual puppy face that caused us to be surprised when, upon her arrival, the vet pronounced her already a year and a half old, she was put together of odd parts. She had short legs, long body, pop eyes, brindle and white and brown and black color, beautiful little teeth that sometimes refused to be hidden by her mouth. And, yet, she charmed you. She licked and kissed and when exhausted curled up in a comma pose so tight you’d swear she couldn’t weigh four pounds. All 19 pounds of her was alive and percolating. No catlike naps or slovenly dog ways. She was at it, about it, living flat-out. I know everyone else is writing about the sad state of our union. Latest reports say “social media” -- don’t you hate that term -- bogus news reports that shaped the presidential vote may have come from Russia. Russia. I imagined families all over America in Thanksgiving food fights, split as evenly about presidential choices as they were dark or white meat. I know in my family it’s an even divide. But I can’t focus on the nation. It wouldn’t do any good. As my old newspaper friend from Bogue Chitto, Mississippi, used to say, “You can’t ruin a ruint.” We’ll see who celebrates when Medicare vanishes and Florida is halfway underwater. You can deny truths only for a short while. Right now I’m caught up in the visceral loss of Lucinda, who made me smile every day she was on this earth. I can’t say that about any politician. She brought energy into a household with two old dogs and two old people. To paraphrase the late Leonard Cohen, we ache in the places that we used to play. Lucinda was youth, well-represented. Lucinda cut her paw about two weeks before she disappeared. When we took her to back to the vet to get the stitches removed, kind Doc Gina said Lucinda already had taken out her own stitches. Nothing slowed her down. Until it did. Three dogs went out last week as they do every morning. Only two came back for breakfast. We searched, of course, but never found a sign of Lucinda. We blame the coyotes, those sneaky, vicious, voracious and starving creatures that prey on the weak, the small, the injured. Sorta like some politicians. Rheta Grimsley Johnson’s most recent book is “Hank Hung the Moon ... And Warmed Our Cold, Cold Hearts.” Comments are welcomed at

Prayer for today My Father, grant that I may not deceive myself and expect big results from little efforts; nor be willing to receive assistance and refuse my support. May I not only be anxious to give others all that I can, and share their burdens, but may I be glad to help make fewer burdens for others to bear. Amen.

A verse to share My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.” –John 14:2-4

The left’s love affair with Fidel Castro In a statement following the death of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, President Obama spoke of “the countless ways in which (Castro) altered the course of individual lives, families, and of the Cuban nation.” That’s an understatement as the thousands who have risked their lives over the years to escape from Cuba have testified. The president added: “History will record and judge the enormous impact of this singular figure on the people and world around him.” Why wait on history? We can judge him now. For six decades the left has lauded Castro as a secular savior, seeing only what they wanted to see and reporting only what the Cuban government wanted them to report. Examples are legion, but this one is typical: In February 1988, the State Department named Cuba one of the world’s biggest human rights oppressors. NBC News reporter Ed Rabel visited Havana to check it out. Rich Noyes of the Media Research Center, the conservative media watchdog, writes: “NBC’s conciliatory approach allowed Castro to spew lies about his drug connections and the wonderful achievements of the Cuban revolution.” Rabel

reported, “There is, in Cuba, government intrusion into everyone’s life, from the Cal moment he Thomas is born until the day Columnist he dies. The reasoning is that the government wants to better the lives of its citizens and keep them from exploiting or hurting one another. ... On a sunny day in a park in the old city of Havana it is difficult to see anything that is sinister.” Over the years, celebrities made pilgrimages to Havana. Each time they marveled at the supposed excellence of Cuba’s medical care and quality of education. In the immediate aftermath of Castro’s death, the pattern was repeated. Typical was Andrea Mitchell, who gushed on MSNBC: “(Castro) gave his people better health care and education.” Mitchell and other Castro disciples apparently never read a July 2007 article in National Review titled, “The Myth of Cuban Health Care.” The magazine was among many publications that destroyed the notion of outstanding health care in Cuba, noting that the country offers three medical tiers. One tier is for celebri-

ties and tourists, requiring payment in hard cash to help bolster the regime. The second tier is for Cuba’s top government officials. The third tier is for everyone else, which the magazine called “...wretched. Hospitals and clinics are crumbling. Conditions are so unsanitary, patients may be better off at home, whatever home is. If they do go to the hospital, they must bring their own bed sheets, soap, towels, food, light bulbs, even toilet paper. And basic medications are scarce ... finding an aspirin can be a chore. And an antibiotic will fetch a fortune on the black market.” As for “excellence” in Cuba’s education system, a February 2015 article in The Atlantic punctured that myth: “Under Fidel Castro, education became universal -- but he also stipulated that anyone who received this education would have to actively promote government policies both during and after their schooling. They would also be required to take government-approved courses that didn’t tolerate any criticism of socialism as a way of life. In other words, education was seen as key to the revolution taking hold and creating a literate population loyal to the government.” The left, so concerned

about human rights in America and other noncommunist countries, ignores their violations in Cuba. As Human Rights Watch noted earlier this year, “The Cuban government continues to repress dissent and discourage public criticism. While in recent years it has relied less on long-term prison sentences to punish its critics, shortterm arbitrary arrests of human rights defenders, independent journalists, and other critics have increased dramatically. Other repressive tactics employed by the government include beatings, public acts of shaming, and the termination of employment.” President-elect Donald Trump’s statement was more direct and accurate than President Obama’s: “Today, the world marks the passing of a brutal dictator who oppressed his own people for nearly six decades. Fidel Castro’s legacy is one of firing squads, theft, unimaginable suffering, poverty and the denial of fundamental human rights.” This should be history’s judgment on Fidel Castro, depending on who writes it.

Self-government in the wilderness The Mayflower had a harrowing two months crossing the Atlantic. Its mast splintered in rough water and two people died, as supplies dwindled and passengers grew sick. It arrived in the New World later than expected, on the cusp of a punishing winter. It was this voyage, of course, that gave us one of the foundational documents in our history, the Mayflower Compact. It is easy to forget that the Compact, the first artifact of American self-government, was written at the outset of a survival challenge worthy of the TV show “Naked and Afraid,” except the stakes were real. In his excellent history of the Mayflower and the initial settlement at Plymouth, Nathaniel Philbrick writes of the outlandishness of the Pilgrim project. The Pilgrims rejected what they considered a corrupted Church of England and wanted to found their own community, but might as well have resolved to do it on the far side of the moon. As Philbrick notes, all other ventures to create permanent English settle-

ments in this hemisphere had failed, with the exception of Jamestown, which Rich wasn’t exLowry actly an encouraging National precedent. Review Its first year, 70 of 108 people died, and the next year, in the course of a brutal six months, another 440 of 500 settlers perished. Against these odds, the Mayflower traversed the Atlantic and was immediately confronted with what political philosophers might call a crisis of the regime. It sighted land off of Cape Cod on Nov. 9, 1620, well north of its intended destination in Virginia. It was too dangerous to venture farther down the coast. So, its passengers would have to land in Massachusetts, even though no legal provision had been made to do so. What was the governing authority in this literally uncharted territory? An argument ensued. In the words of the eventual governor of Plymouth

Colony, William Bradford, some passengers made “discontented and mutinous speeches,” and threatened to go their own way, because “none had power to command them.” (The passengers were divided between the Pilgrims and others who were on board simply to increase the odds of success, the so-called Strangers.) This created a truly ruinous prospect. Divided, everyone might well die. An agreement was hammered out and signed by the men on the ship. It provided that they would “covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil body politic.” The compact would be “for our better ordering,” and “to enact, constitute and frame such just and equal laws, ordinances, acts, constitutions and offices, from time to time, as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the general good of the Colony.” This wasn’t a revolutionary statement. It acknowledged “our dread sovereign Lord, King James.” The Pilgrims, of course, didn’t intend to set in motion the process that would create a liberal democracy. Histo-

rian Walter McDougall calls Massachusetts “an oligarchy of the devout.” And the Compact doesn’t set out any explicit rights. Yet the implication is clear. As political philosopher Willmoore Kendall put it, “The Compact is itself an exercise in freedom, and a tacit assertion of at least one right, that is, the right to be free, the right to make such a compact as the signers are making.” “Here,” John Adams marveled, “was a unanimous and personal assent by all the individuals of the community, to the association by which they became a nation.” William Bradford was re-elected 30 times as governor of the colony, and a through line runs from the Mayflower Compact to our contemporary democracy that hasn’t lost its vitality or ability to surprise. For that, and the wisdom and endurance of our forebears, we all should be grateful. Daily Corinthian columnist Rich Lowry can be reached via e-mail:

Campus Country ready for ‘Tomorrow Never Comes’ For the Daily Corinthian

BOONEVILLE — Northeast Mississippi Community College’s Campus Country will be learning to fly while letting go of it all during its second Showtime of the 2016-17 academic year tonight. Entitled “Tomorrow Never Comes,” Campus Country is expected to open up its mid-year Showtime with a 19-song setlist tonight in the Seth Pounds Auditorium. Curtain rises on the second Showtime of the year at 7 p.m. with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. Admission is free to Northeast faculty, staff and students with a current identification card and is only $5 for the general public. In addition to mixing in the Showtime’s title piece in the first two songs of the night, the second Showtime of the year will also serve as the Christmas Showtime that fans have come to expect from the musical ensemble. “Celebrating the Christmas season with our friends, families, and fans is always a treat for us,” said Northeast Campus Country director Chris Dunn. Campus Country has backloaded the setlist to include 13 pieces from contemporary country to classic country hits with some soft rock mixed in but will end the last third of the show with six holiday favorites. Campus Country will also have a rarity in the show opener as a male vocalist opens the show for the first time in a while

when Booneville’s Chance Stanley steps to the microphone for his rendition of Gary Allan’s “Right Where I Need to Be.” After finding where it needs to be on the stage of Seth Pounds Auditorium, Mary Steadman of Iuka will introduce the audience to the Showtime’s title piece “Tomorrow Never Comes,” by the Zac Brown Band. Northeast’s Campus Country follows up the Showtime’s title piece with The Steeldrivers’ “If It Hadn’t Been for Love,” as Saltillo’s Lane Boozer croons the crowd. The Steeldrivers became a springboard for former front man Chris Stapleton as he shot to stardom in the past few years. Stapleton has been a staple on previous Campus County setlists and The Steeldrivers won the 2015 Best Bluegrass Album Grammy Award for their album, “The Muscle Shoals Recordings.” “We actually covered the Adele version of ‘If It Hadn’t Been for Love’ a few years ago, but I’ve always preferred the original,” Dunn said. “To me, everything Stapleton does is fantastic. He’s one of our group’s favorite artist as is evident by how many of his songs we’ve performed over the last few years.” Booneville’s Emily Elliott and Walnut’s Ashlyn Inman follow with two woman-led ballads following Boozer’s rendition of The Steeldrivers classic. Elliott will take on the role of Adele for “Send My Love,” while Inman will head into the

country genre with “Vice” by Miranda Lambert. Acoustic Guitarist Billy Stone of Booneville gets a chance to showcase his vocal talents midway through the first part of the show when he channels Eric Church’s “Springsteen.” Molly Thorn of Belmont and Boozer follow Stone’s “Springsteen” with a little Fleetwood Mac “Landslide” to slow down the tone of the show. Vanna Loveless of Tupelo looks to Jaron and the Long Road to Love for her opening number of the Showtime when she begins with “Pray for You.” “Somehow, I had never heard ‘Pray for You’ before Vanna chose to perform it,” Dunn said. “I immediately cracked up over the lyrics and loved the songs chord progressions. Also, I get a chance to do my best gospel organ impression during the opening of that song, so it’s one of my favorites to perform.” Colby Crenshaw of Rienzi, who helped to rock Seth Pounds Auditorium during the first Showtime of the year with Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk,” will step out of the country genre and perform James Brown’s “It’s A Man’s World,” as the Showtime reaches the midway point of the night. Thorn leads the group into a four female set before Campus Country ends the night with six straight holiday songs. Thorn starts the four-song set off with Wynonna Judd’s “Only Love” and finishes it with

Jennifer Nettle’s “Unlove You,” as Elliott and Boozer cover the middle two performances with Maren Morris’ “Once” and Miranda Lambert’s “Priscilla.” In the holiday portion of the show, Campus Country will take both a serious and lighthearted look at the holidays. Inman and Stone open up the holiday portion of the concert with Lady Antebellum’s “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” while Steadman follows with the Melissa Etheridge classic, “Christmas in America.” Inman takes on Faith Hill’s “Santa Claus is Back in Town,” and Crenshaw steps to the mic for his second performance of the night with Danny Gokey’s “Mary, Did You Know?” Loveless sings of the true meaning of the season with the classic Alan Jackson version of “Silent Night” before a light-hearted look at the dysfunctional holidays arrives when Stanley, who opens up the Showtime, returns to the microphone to close the show with Robert Earl Keen’s “Merry Christmas from the Family.” “I really hope to see some members of the community or former Campus Country members at the show who might not have seen the group in a while,” Dunn said. “We’re constantly working to improve our performance and live presentation. If you have any ties to Campus Country or the NEMCC music program from years past, I’d be honored to meet and speak with you after our show.”

Members of 2016-17 NEMCC Campus Country include Lane Boozer of Saltillo (vocals), Adam Chabot of Waynsboro, Tenn. (bass), Colby Crenshaw of Rienzi (vocals/keys), Emily Elliott of Booneville (vocals), Drew Henry of Belmont (electric guitar), Ashlyn Inman of Walnut (vocals), Andrew Hill of Saltillo (electric guitar/sax), Dillon Keith of Waynesboro, Tenn.

McKinney of Amory (sound), Chance Stanley of Marietta (vocals), Mary Steadman of Iuka (vocals), Billy Stone of Booneville (acoustic guitar) and Molly Thorn of Belmont (vocals). Northeast Campus Country is under the direction of Chris Dunn of Booneville. Northeast’s Campus Country’s two Spring semester Showtimes are scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 16, and Thursday, April 13. Auditions for membership in 2017-18 NEMCC Campus Country are set for Saturday, April 8, at 9 a.m. in Seth Pounds Auditorium.

Police HQ to fly state bicentennial banner


After extending the original deadline from Sunday, Nov. 18, to Tuesday, Nov. 29., due to the overwhelming response they received, Main Street Corinth is no longer accepting parade entries and has reached capacity.

said Main Street Corinth Board President Sara Beth Green. The 2016 parade will feature approximately 70 holiday floats and cars as well as elected officials and service vehicles. As a special highlight, Magnolia Regional Health Center will present their “Trolls” themed float, complete with a whimsical train in front. All large floats should be in position by 3:30 p.m. Vehicles and walking groups should be in position no later than 4:25 p.m. The parade will begin promptly at 5 p.m., regardless of weather conditions. “Please allow time for travel to your lineup position as street closure and pedestrians may effect traffic flow,” said Green. “This year’s route will begin down Fillmore and Cass Streets and end at Memorial Funeral Home.” After extending the original deadline from Sunday, Nov. 18, to Tuesday, Nov. 29. due to the overwhelming response they received, Main Street Corinth is no longer accepting parade entries and has reached capacity.

Wildfire death toll rises in Tennessee Associated Press

GATLINBURG, Tenn. — Three more bodies were found in the ruins of wildfires that torched hundreds of homes and businesses in the Great Smoky Mountains area, raising the death toll to seven, a Tennessee mayor said Wednesday. Search-and-rescue missions continued, and Sevier County Mayor Larry Waters said they had found three people who had been trapped since the fires started spreading wildly in high winds on Monday night. The mayor said the three were OK. “That is some good, positive news for a change,” he said. The mayor said authorities are still working to identify the dead and did not release any details

about how they were killed. State law enforcement set up a hotline for people to report missing friends and family. Officials have not said how many people they believe are missing. Three brothers being treated at a Nashville hospital said they had not heard from their parents since they were separated while fleeing the fiery scene during their vacation. Gatlinburg Police Chief Randall Brackins said they have searched about 30 percent or less of the city so far. More than 14,000 people were evacuated from Gatlinburg on Monday night, and many of them are still nervously awaiting word of when they can get back in the city to see if they still have homes. Buddy McLean said he

watched Monday from a deserted Gatlinburg street as flames surrounded his 26-acre hotel nestled in the mountains. His grandfather bought the land in 1945, and he developed a subdivision on part of it and built The Lodge at Buckberry Creek about 14 years ago on the mountainside to take advantage of the views of Mount LeConte. McLean said four rooms were booked and another 15 people were having a private dinner when the hotel’s chef and event coordinator told everyone to evacuate. “I have 35 employees,” McLean said. “All of them lost their jobs overnight.” Storms moved through the area Wednesday as part of a system ravaging the Southeast, spawn-

ing suspected tornadoes in parts of Alabama and Tennessee, killing five people and injuring more than a dozen. Officials in the Gatlinburg welcomed the rain but were worried about mudslides, rock slides and high winds knocking trees onto power lines, perhaps creating new fires similar to the deadly ones that sparked Monday night. Most of those fires had been contained by Wednesday afternoon, but uncertainty remained for a region that serves as the gateway into the Great Smoky Mountains, the country’s most visited national park. Officials in nearby Pigeon Forge lifted the evacuation order there, but the order still stood in Gatlinburg.

Wife’s job at the gym has husband in a sweat D E A R ABBY: My wife and I have been married for almost 11 years and have three Abigail c h i l d r e n . four Van Buren About years ago my wife Dear Abby cheated on me and left. After a six-week split, we decided we wanted to work things out. Everything was great -- until recently, when she got a job working at a busy gym. Several of the guys from the gym have added her on Facebook and send her messages. They like all her posts and pictures. I work out there and when I go in, I see her laughing and joking with them. This has all started to bring me flashbacks to when she cheated. I tried talking to her about how I feel, but she just says they are my insecurity issues and I need to deal with them. At this point, I’m contemplating divorce so I won’t go through the same pain I went through last time. I check her Facebook page constantly to see if she has added any new guys and see

what comments they are leaving. I know it’s not healthy, and it makes me constantly depressed. My wife has no interest in marriage counseling, but tells me I should seek professional help for my issues. Is there any saving this marriage, or is it time to move on? -- THREATENED IN TEXAS DEAR THREATENED: Part of your wife’s job is to be friendly to the members of that gym. It doesn’t mean that she’s involved with any of them outside of work. The problem with jealousy and insecurity is that unless they are managed, they tend to feed on each other and grow. While I can’t banish the suspicions from your mind, some sessions with a licensed mental health professional might help you to put them into perspective. It may save your marriage. However, if it doesn’t ease your mind, you can always talk to a lawyer. DEAR ABBY: I take a maintenance pain pill for arthritis. I count them every other day to make sure that I’m not taking too many. My daughter has been coming to my house a lot lately, and -- not every time, but off and on -- I’ll count my pills after she leaves, and my count doesn’t

match the one from the day before. Sometimes I’m missing almost all of them, but when I talk to my daughter and ask if she took them, she always says she didn’t. If I ask nicely, “Are you sure?” she accuses me of calling her a liar. I know she’s taking them, but I don’t know what to do about her lying to me about it. I really need the pills for myself. The doctor prescribes them only once a month, and I know I’m going to run out. What should I do? I don’t want to hurt my daughter’s feelings, but she needs to stop taking my pills. -- IN PAIN IN KANSAS DEAR IN PAIN: Your daughter may have become addicted to your pain medication or be selling them to people who are. It’s time to start keeping your pills under lock and key. Once you do, your daughter may be forced to come clean about the lying -- or you may find you’re seeing a lot less of her than you presently do.

Horoscopes ARIES (March 21-April 19). There’s a reprieve in whatever relationship strife you’ve been experiencing. Rest confident that the one you love loves you. Reciprocity doesn’t guarantee an easy road, but it sure is a better start than the opposite dynamic. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You do not have to be an expert in grief or loss to help a bad situation. When you show up with an open heart, your very presence is a comfort to those who need it. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You have a family you were born to and a family you define. There’s an occasion coming up where the two might intersect, and this will turn out just fine. Relax. There’s nothing to worry about. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You may not be a schoolchild, but you’re not too old to show your work to someone whose opinion matters to you or to hang it up in an important place. Those who honor your self-ex-

pression honor you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Small talk won’t naturally gravitate to the things you care about unless you steer it in that direction. Do so today, because you’ll get more enjoyment from connecting with people on what truly interests you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You can and should automate and improve the process of dayto-day business. You’ll never know what your time could be better spent doing until you open some of it up to the possibilities. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). When you make efforts to see the bigger picture, you’ll notice, with mixed feelings, that many people around you face dramatic challenges that make your own grievances seem trivial. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Being a fan of great work perks your awareness and raises your bar, making you a candidate for eventual great work yourself. No pressure, though: For now, enjoy your fandom status. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec.

21). Everyone needs support and compassion, and yet there are not as may givers of these things as there could be. If you feel like you’re making up for the thoughtlessness and ignorance of others, you are. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). On the route to finding happiness, sometimes you have no idea which direction you’re headed. This is natural. Get rid of the things that make you unhappy, and see if that doesn’t clear your windshield somewhat. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). An unexpected wrinkle arises. This prompts you to seek expert help. There’s much available you won’t have to pay for. Follow the prescription to a T and you’ll be home free. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The best position is the one with the least to lose. Paradoxically, to get there, you have to agree to lose things. You’ll loosen your grip on something you thought you needed. Turns out, you don’t.

Where the Hedge Funds Are Want to rub shoulders with some hedge funders? Buy Expedia stock. Thirty percent of the online travel company is owned by hedge funds, the highest percentage of any stock in the Standard & Poor’s 500 index. For comparison, hedge funds only own 3 percent of, another popular stock among the exclusive investment funds. Why should regular investors care where hedge funds put money for wealthy families and big institutional investors? Because these stocks have tended to do better than the S&P 500, say strategists at Goldman Sachs. Since the summer of 2001, quarterly returns for the 20 S&P 500 stocks with the highest concentration of hedge-fund ownership have beaten the index 68 percent of the time. On average, they beat the S&P 500 by 2.5 percentage points. Of course, investing alongside hedge funds can also mean risk. Just because a hedge fund owns Expedia today doesn’t mean it will own the stock tomorrow. Hedge funds are notorious for trading quickly, though since the Great Recession they’ve tended to hold stocks longer. Hedge funds replaced 27 percent of their portfolios from the end of June through September.

Spotlight on construction The Commerce Department reports today its data on how construction spending fared in October. U.S. builders cut their spending on construction projects in September for the second month in a row. Much of the decrease came as government spending for schools, sewers and transportation projects tumbled. Economists predict that construction spending picked up in October by a seasonally adjusted rate of 0.6 percent.

Remember to do what’s best for children WIZARD OF ID





Dear Annie: My nephew, “Bill,” married “Helen.” Helen had a 2-yearold son, “Dylan.” Helen told Bill that Dylan’s father had given up his parental rights, so Bill legally and happily adopted baby Dylan. We all came to deeply love baby Dylan. He was adorable, bright and sweet. Dylan quickly felt close to all his many cousins. Four years later, Helen abruptly left Bill for another man. When Bill attempted to get visitation with Dylan, Helen informed the court that Dylan’s father had never really given up his parental rights, so therefore the adoption became void. Tragically, none of us in the family ever saw Dylan again. How could 6-year-old Dylan begin to understand this? He loved Bill more than anyone in the world, and then one day he never saw him again! We do not know what his mother told him. How could his mother hurt him like this? I often wonder whether children are ever going to have any rights of their own in our courts. So far, the only rights kids have are not to be starved and not to be beaten. Our children are still lawfully treated as property of their parents. Our courts look out for the parents’ rights. When will our laws become in favor of what is in the best interest of the

Dear Annie child? — Still Crying Dear Crying: Look further into the laws in your state. I think there is a good chance your nephew has recourse here to see Dylan again, especially as he adopted him — or at least was led to believe he did. Some states do have laws that take such factors into consideration, with the goal of doing what’s best for the child. Don’t give up hope. Dear Annie: I feel that your reply to “Serially Disappointed” was a cop-out. I hear what this young woman is saying. I am in my early 60s and have been divorced for 15 years. The men I meet are seriously lacking in relationship and basic life skills. I will admit I settled for much less than I should have with my most recent three partners because they had many good qualities that attracted me. One decided after three years that I was “too fat” (I am a size 12), and he met a woman who is shorter than I am but not thinner. Another, after two years, told me he had a boyfriend and thought it was OK to date us both at

the same time because he is bisexual. I ended the relationship, and six months later, he was married to a woman. Another one sat on my couch one day and began crying, telling me he missed his wife, whom he had divorced five years earlier. (They eventually remarried.) My friends, all married or in long-term relationships, said, “Take some time for yourself!” I don’t know what they were thinking when I’d been spending most birthdays, Christmas Eves and New Year’s Eves alone for years. I haven’t dated for two years. Now the same friends say, “You have to get yourself out there!” I go to movies, plays and other events alone. I bicycle on busy bike paths, and I work a job. But the truth is that no one has the answer as to why most single men are so out of whack. So they tell you silly things — for example, “Learn how to be happy with yourself.” “Serially Disappointed” gave no indication she is not happy with herself, and I am indeed happy with who I am. I just wish I could find a quality single guy in his 60s before he is snatched up by one of the millions of intelligent, compassionate, kind single women out there looking. — Will Anyone Love Me When I’m 64?

What’s going on around here? BY KENT MOHUNDRO Sports Editor

As the old cliche goes, “it’s the most wonderful time of the year.” Besides the fact that it is definitely a wonderful time of year with Christmas parades starting this week to kick off the official Christmas season, there is a plethora of sports events to go around. It’s kind of like going to the buffet two or three times to fill your plate up again. The following is a list of this and that’s sports notes, designed to keep even the hungriest sports fans at least halfway full.

Cancelled Basketball Games The severe weather threat we were faced with Tuesday night left most area schools scrambling to reschedule their games. And that had been accom-

plished as of Wednesday afternoon when it was announced the Biggersville/ Alcorn Central games will be made up on Jan. 21. However, a kink ocurred and now it’s in limbo again. We’ll keep you informed here when we find out for sure when that makeup date will be. Check the local schedule for the remainder of rescheduled games. Most will be made up in the next week, with Walnut and Thrasher both scheduled for Thursday evening.

Upcoming High School Basketball Notes With the Lighthouse Classic now in the books, it’s time to move on to other tournaments that usually dot the local schedule this time of year. • Biggersville High School will once again host their annual Biggersville Shootout, featuring boys teams from around North Mississippi, on Dec. 17.

Local teams, Alcorn Central and Corinth will be a part of this one-day tournament that will also bring in three 6A teams from DeSoto County. • The night before, on Friday Dec. 16, the Tishomingo County Braves will be playing in the Fed Ex Forum in Memphis, home of the NBA’s Memphis Grizzlies. The Griz will play that night, but the Braves boys and girls squads will be playing against Heritage Academy beginning with the ladies contest at 1 pm. • The 10th Annual Holiday Basketball Tournament at Alcorn Central, renamed after the late Peggy Bain four years ago, will tip off on Tuesday, Dec. 27, with action in both gyms as usual. This year, head coach Charlette Foster and the AC staff have put together a schedule featuring 23 teams from North Mississippi, Northwest Alabama, and Southwest Te-

nessee. Look for the complete tournament schedule in the Daily Corinthian sports section for all the information on teams, game times, gym sites and girls and boys pools. • McNairy Central will host the Bankers Classic at the round house on Dec. 19-20. • Several area schools will be competing in out-of-town tournaments after school dismisses for the Christmas break. Check the local schedule daily for a listing of those game. • The final item on the agenda will be the Alcorn County Tournament Jan. 5-7 at the Crossroads Arena. • Corinth and Tishomingo County continue to kick their way through the soccer schedule and look to finish well down the stretch. Again, it’s a busy time of the year, but definitely a most wonderful time if you just slow down occasionally and enjoy a plate full of sports. Happy Holidays everyone.

AC All-Division Volleyball Selection These eight Alcorn Central players made the Division 3A All-Division Volleyball Team. The Lady Bears were also Division champions, winning 16 matches in a row before bowing out in the second round of the state playoffs.

Cowboys could clinch playoff berth this weekend The Associated Press

Here’s a measure of just how good things are going in Big D. One team can clinch a playoff berth this weekend: the Cowboys. Dallas visits Minnesota on Thursday night. With a victory and either a loss by Washington or a loss/tie by Tampa Bay gets the Cowboys into the postseason parade. Minnesota’s defense should provide a decent challenge for rookie sensations Ezekiel Elliott, the league’s leading

rusher, and quarterback Dak Prescott. If the Vikings can get some sort of penetration through the best offensive line in football, they could have a chance. But they must steer clear of falling behind against Dallas, something most Cowboys opponents haven’t avoided. The Cowboys are ranked atop the AP Pro32 as they go for an 11th straight win since their opening loss to the Giants, who they take on next week.

Minnesota (No. 14 (tie), AP Pro32) has fallen on hard times since being the league’s last unbeaten team at 5-0 and now is 6-5 — and a 3-point underdog at home. Dallas takes the first step toward that playoff clinching. ... COWBOYS, 24-16

Knockout League Tip Haven’t liked anything we’ve seen lately from Houston, so put on those Cheeseheads and take GREEN BAY. No. 9 (tie) Detroit (plus 4

1-2) at No. 22 New Orleans A somewhat unusual selection for Pro Picks’ Best Bet, but Lions should cover, Saints should win. So ... BEST BET: SAINTS, 31-29 No. 9 (tie) Washington (plus 3) at No. 25 Arizona Redskins get the proper amount of rest — and then some — this time.

College football holds championship weekend spoilers The Associated Press

The trophies could be the only prizes for the winners in several games during championship weekend. This is not the NCAA basketball tournament. Those titles don’t automatically come with playoff spots, and in some cases, the wrong winner could ruin things for a conference. No more so than the Atlantic Coast Conference, where No. 19 Virginia Tech can only play spoiler to No. 3 Clemson. Not only would a victory by the Hokies likely cost Clemson and the ACC a chance to win the national championship, but it could also cost the conference $2 million. The College Football Playoff revenue distribution plan pays each conference $6 million for each team placed in the semifinals. The net loss would only be $2 million because Virginia Tech would be guaranteed a spot in the Orange Bowl as ACC champion (worth $4 million) and Clemson would be a good bet to be ranked high enough to end up in the Cotton Bowl and earn another $4 million for the conference. A rundown of what is on the line beyond playoff spots this weekend: SEC — Florida would earn a Sugar Bowl bid by beating Alabama. Pac-12 — If the winner of No. 4 Washington and No. 9 Colorado does not get into the playoff, it goes to the Rose Bowl. And if the winner does get into the playoff, the loser could very well end up in the Rose Bowl as the next highest ranked Pac-12 team in the last selection committee rankings. Big Ten — Worst-case scenario for the winner of No. 8 Penn State vs. No. 6 Wisconsin is the Rose Bowl. Big 12 — No. 11 Oklahoma State is at No. 7 Oklahoma in a de facto conference title game. The winner gets a Sugar Bowl bid and can hold out some very long shot playoff hopes.

Wallace says he has no regrets regarding time with Dolphins The Associated Press

DAVIE, Fla. — When Mike Wallace’s two frustrationfilled seasons with the Miami Dolphins came to an end, he was on the bench rather than in the playoffs. The Dolphins then discarded him for a fifth-round draft pick, an acknowledgement the $60 million, five-year deal they gave Wallace had failed to pay off. Even so, he said he has no regrets about his time in Miami in 2013-14. “They gave me a lot of money in two years,” Wallace said Wednesday. “It’s all love on my end. My life is a lot better because of those guys. So I have no grudges against them whatsoever.” Wallace is now with the Bal-

timore Ravens and will face the Dolphins on Sunday for the first time since he left under strained circumstances. He’s anticipating the game so eagerly he tweeted a countdown to kickoff on Sunday night: “7 days!” “A lot of people probably took it the wrong way,” Wallace said with a chuckle. “But I have nothing against those guys. It just didn’t work out.” The Dolphins under coach Joe Philbin went 8-8 in each of their two seasons with Wallace. One of the NFL’s fastest players, he fell short of 1,000 yards receiving both years, and he never got in sync with Ryan Tannehill on deep passes. “I definitely have fault on my end,” he said. “There was a lot of other fault, too.”

Frustration boiled over in the final game. Circumstances remain fuzzy as to whether Wallace refused to re-enter the game or was told by the coaching staff to stay on the sideline. “It was a frustrating incident where you wanted to do well and wanted the team to do well, and it just wasn’t going that way,” he said. “But I would never do anything to quit on my team.” After leaving Miami, Wallace had one disappointing season with the Minnesota Vikings, who then released him. At 30 he has revived his career in Baltimore, ranking among the top 15 receivers in yards (792) and yards per catch (15.5). “He has done great,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said.

“It has been great to have him here. I love his attitude. He works. He’s a competitor. He has a great personality. He wants to be a great player and has had some huge plays for us, and we’ve needed them.” Wallace has four touchdowns, one on a 95-yard catch. Is he as fast as ever? “You’ll see,” he said. “I think I’m forever young. I could be 45 years old and still run past people. I don’t think that’s ever going to be a problem, the way I feel today. Maybe tomorrow that might change. As of today, I feel I’ll never slow down.” Wallace said he remains friends with some Dolphins, including Jarvis Landry, Reshad Jones and Mike Pouncey. He said he had good relation-

ships with Philbin and Tannehill. “My whole time was good until the last game,” he said. “I was always good with Ryan. I like Ryan. I think he’s a great guy, a hard worker, and I see him getting better.” Tannehill is thriving under first-year coach Adam Gase, and the Dolphins (7-4) bring a six-game winning streak to Baltimore (6-5). Does Miami’s success make Wallace wish he was still there? “‘No,” he said. “I’m happy for those guys. No ill feelings. But I feel like I’ve been taken on this path for a reason.” And he loves Baltimore. “The way the organization is run is more my speed here,” he said.

Myles Gaskin and the Washington Huskies face Colorado on Friday night in Santa Clara, Calif., in the Pac-12 Championship Game.

Huskies playing for playoff A win in Pac-12 title game should secure a spot for Washington WASHINGTON VS. COLORADO (PAC-12) Washington is the rare trendy preseason pick that lived up to â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and perhaps exceeded â&#x20AC;&#x201D; expectations. The Huskies capped off a banner regular season with a 45â&#x20AC;&#x201C;17 win at Washington State in a winner-take-all Apple Cup. Conventional wisdom suggests that the Huskies, 11â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1 overall, will be in the College Football Playoff with a win in the Pac-12 title game. Colorado is perhaps the most surprising team in the nation. After winQLQJDWRWDORIWZROHDJXHJDPHVLQ0LNH0DF,QW\UH¡VĂ&#x20AC;UVWWKUHHVHDVRQV the Buffaloes won the outright South Division title with an 8â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1 record. Washington 30â&#x20AC;&#x201C;21

WISCONSIN VS. PENN STATE (BIG TEN) In a surprising development, neither Ohio State nor Michigan is representing the East Division in the Big Ten Championship Game. Penn State, which closed the season with eight straight wins, earned a spot thanks to its win over Ohio State in October. The Nittany Lions might not be as highly regarded as Ohio State or Michigan State, but this is still a very good team that is playing at a high level.

An interesting note about this game: It means very little to Alabama â&#x20AC;&#x201D; other than opportunity to add another SEC championship to its trophy case. Even with a loss, the Crimson Tide would be a virtual lock for a spot in the College Football Playoff. Alabama 33â&#x20AC;&#x201C;7

TEMPLE AT NAVY (AAC) Ken Niumatalolo continues to work his magic at Navy. The Midshipmen have won at least eight games for the eighth time in his nine seasons as the boss in Annapolis. Despite the loss of 10 starters on offense, the Middies averaged 470.0 yards and 41.7 points per game. Temple is back in the AAC title game for the second straight season â&#x20AC;&#x201D; something not many anticipated after the Owls opened the year with a loss at home to Army. Since Week 1, Temple has won nine of 11, with the losses by seven points on the road vs. Penn State and Memphis. Navy 34â&#x20AC;&#x201C;24

2. Jake Browning, QB, Washington Browning shined in the Huskiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 45â&#x20AC;&#x201C;17 win over Washington State, throwing for 292 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions. For the season, he has thrown for 3,162 yards with 40 TDs and seven INTs. 3. Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ nal home game was memorable; he threw for 347 yards and six touchdowns to lead the Tigers to a 56â&#x20AC;&#x201C;7 win over rival South Carolina. For the season, the junior has 3,626 passing yards, 444 rushing yards and has accounted for 38 touchdowns. 4. Christian McCaffrey, RB, Stanford McCaffrey moved up to fourth in the nation in rushing (145.7 ypg) after running for 204 yards in the Cardinalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 41â&#x20AC;&#x201C;17 win over Rice. The junior running back has averaged 198.2 yards rushing in the last ďŹ ve games. 5. Dede Westbrook, WR, Oklahoma Westbrook and the Sooners did not play last week. He ranks fourth nationally in receiving yards per game (123.1) and receiving touchdowns (15). He has at least 100 receiving yards in seven of the past eight games.

Western Michigan is the only team in the nation not named Alabama that has not lost a game. The Broncos havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t played a grueling slate, but they are 2â&#x20AC;&#x201C;0 against Power 5 opponents, with wins at Northwestern and Illinois in September.

SAN DIEGO STATE AT WYOMING (MOUNTAIN WEST) Both teams secured their spot in the Mountain West title game before they even played last weekend â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and it showed.

Florida has not scored an offensive touchdown against Florida State in the last nine quarters. The Seminoles have won four straight in the series. Vanderbilt scored 11 touchdowns in its last two regular-season games after scoring a total of seven in its ďŹ rst six SEC games. Pittsburgh and Syracuse combined for 20 touchdowns in the Panthersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 76â&#x20AC;&#x201C;61 win over the Orange. The two teams set an FBS record for most points scored in a game (137).

Alabama has not allowed a touchdown in the last four games. The Crimson Tide shut out LSU, gave up three points to both Mississippi State and Chattanooga and 12 points to Auburn in the Iron Bowl.


STOCK REPORT Two months ago, Penn State returned home with a 2â&#x20AC;&#x201C;2 record after a 49â&#x20AC;&#x201C;10 loss at Michigan. Now, eight wins later, the Nittany Lions are headed to the Big Ten Championship Game. Penn State capped off its unlikely run to the title game with a convincing 45â&#x20AC;&#x201C;12 win over Michigan State.

Tennessee, the overwhelming favorite to win the SEC East, ďŹ nished the regular season with a 4â&#x20AC;&#x201C;4 mark in league play after losing to Vanderbilt 45â&#x20AC;&#x201C;34 in Nashville. The Volunteersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; defense allowed an average of 661 total yards in its last three games â&#x20AC;&#x201D; wins over Kentucky and Missouri and the loss to Vanderbilt.

Navy lost 10 starters on offense â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including recordsetting quarterback Keenan Reynolds â&#x20AC;&#x201D; from a team that went 11â&#x20AC;&#x201C;2, yet the winning ways continue for the Midshipmen. Navy is 9â&#x20AC;&#x201C;2 overall and won the tough AAC West Division title with a 7â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1 record on the strength of an offense that is averaging 41.7 points per game.

UCLA ended one of the most disappointing seasons in school history with a 36â&#x20AC;&#x201C;10 loss at California. The Bruins ďŹ nished with a 4â&#x20AC;&#x201C;8 record overall and a 2â&#x20AC;&#x201C;7 mark in the Pac-12. Coach Jim Mora will be back for a sixth season, but he announced on Sunday that offensive coordinator Kennedy Polamula will not be retained.

No. 1 Alabama, No. 15 Florida ride strong â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to title game The Associated Press

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Southeastern Conferenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two stingiest defenses will take the field in the league championship game. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no coincidence. No. 1 Alabama has kept its end zone oďŹ&#x20AC;-limits for more than a month and been practically impenetrable to running backs. No. 15 Florida has only given up a few more points per game and flummoxed opposing quarterbacks. With defenses like that, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter so much that neither team so far

has a 1,000-yard rusher and their passing games have been statistically middle-of-the-pack. Both defenses feature highly rated NFL prospects like the Tideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jonathan Allen and the Gatorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Jalen Tabor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of like a minor league NFL game,â&#x20AC;? Florida quarterback Austin Appleby said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be first-rounders and NFL players all over the field. This is what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about in the SEC.â&#x20AC;? The Tide hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allowed a touchdown in 13-plus quarters, dating all the way back to October 22

against Texas A&M. A star-studded group led by defensive end Allen, linebacker Reuben Foster and safety Minkah Fitzpatrick leads the nation in limiting scoring (11.4 points per game), rushing (68.7 yards) and total defense (246.8 yards). Alabamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s numbers in all three categories are significantly better than last seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s national championship team. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certainly the most opportunistic defense nationally, having allowed 12 touchdowns and scored nine . â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel like weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the

best, but we have to go out there and prove it every week,â&#x20AC;? Allen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have the mentality we have to go out there and suďŹ&#x20AC;ocate and dominate the oďŹ&#x20AC;ense we go against.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worked well so far. Allen and Foster are two of five finalists for the Bronco Nagurski Trophy given to the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top defensive player. Allen has even drawn some buzz as a Heisman Trophy contender with two defensive touchdowns and seven sacks. Linebacker Shaun Dion Hamiltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s response

when asked which Tide defender heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d nominate for such an award: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The defense.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would take all 11 guys because, I mean, when all 11 guys do their job and get a win thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what matters the most,â&#x20AC;? Hamilton said. Floridaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defense has been aďŹ&#x201E;icted with injuries to key players, including defensive linemen Bryan Cox Jr. and Jordan Sherit, safety Marcus Maye and linebackers Alex Anzalone and Jarrad Davis â&#x20AC;&#x201D; all expected to miss the game. Led by cornerbacks

Tabor and Quincy Wilson, the Gators still rank among the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best in pass defense (third), scoring (fifth) and total yards allowed (sixth). Floridaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defense has remained formidable but the injuries have taken a toll, including in last weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 31-13 loss to Florida State. At their best, the Gators allowed 43 rushing yards to South Carolina, 149 total yards to Kentucky and a paltry 53 total yards against North Texas. They also held LSU, which Alabama shut out, to 10 points.

Keys for Alabama STOP THE RUN (AS USUAL): The Crimson Tide leads the country in rush defense at 68.7 yards per game, and a stout defensive front is the calling card of any Nick Saban team. Given Florida’s problems moving the ball, taking away the run is the first priority for Alabama. The Gators enter the week averaging 141.6 yards per game on the ground (104th nationally), and stifling that facet of their offense will force Jim McElwain’s team to lean far more heavily on the pass than they’d prefer. DON’T OPEN THE DOOR: Few opponents have threatened the Crimson Tide much this year, but one that did make a game of it was LSU. The Tigers didn’t let Alabama reach the end zone until the fourth quarter, but couldn’t muster any offense of their own in a 10-0 loss. The Crimson Tide had a pair of turnovers that

day, and a few giveaways could help a similar shaky offense/strong defense team like Florida stick around in this contest.

Keys for Florida PRECISE DEFENSE: As was the case last year, Florida doesn’t possess the most boisterous offense. Its path to victory against the Crimson Tide is to shorten the game and turn it into a low-scoring field position battle. That means the Gators must contain Alabama QB Jalen Hurts on the ground and be mindful of Crimson Tide WR Calvin Ridley, who had eight catches for 102 yards and a TD in last year’s SEC title game. Much of Florida’s talent resides on the defensive side, and it will be tested this week. DEFENSE/SPECIAL TEAMS SCORES: Florida ranks 117th nationally in total offense this year, and neither Austin Appleby nor Luke Del Rio

1. Alabama (12-0): Breezed through the SEC … but is that a reflection of the Tide’s greatness or a weaker league? (Last week: 1) 2. Florida (8-3): The winners of the SEC East got routed against the third-place team in the ACC’s Atlantic Division. (LW: 2) 3. LSU (7-4): The Tigers were closer to going 10-1 than they were 6-5, which only adds to the sting of a hard-luck year. (LW: 6) 4. Auburn (8-4): The Tigers aren’t the first (and probably not the last) team to get manhandled by Alabama this year. (LW: 5) 5. Texas A&M (8-4): Trevor Knight returned from injury to face Louisiana State, but he clearly wasn’t fully healthy. (LW: 4) 6. Tennessee (8-4): Closed out an uneven regular season with a surprising loss to Vanderbilt. (LW: 3)

is likely to explode for 400 yards passing against a weak defense, let alone Alabama’s. The Gators need to find a ways to get an easy score or two, whether it’s via a punt or kick return or something their defense sets up. That’s Alabama’s game, of course, so good luck to Florida making this work.

Prediction ALABAMA 31-7: The Crimson Tide has allowed 42 points in its past six games. Florida has shown little ability to muster much against even mediocre competition, and has not topped the 24-point plateau in any of its past five games. This could very easily turn into a rerun of last year’s SEC title game, when the Gators managed only 21 yards rushing and one offensive touchdown in a 29-15 loss. Alabama is likely to roll into the College Football Playoff as an undefeated top seed.



7. Georgia (7-5): Squandered away a late lead against Georgia Tech that snapped a three-game winning streak. (LW: 7) 8. Kentucky (7-5): Unlike the past couple years, the Wildcats finished strong, stunning Lamar Jackson and Louisville. (LW: 10) 9. Arkansas (7-5): The Hogs will head to a bowl game, but this wasn’t a particularly satisfying season. (LW: 8) 10. Vanderbilt (6-6): The Commodores didn’t sneak into a bowl via their academic prowess. They beat the Vols for win No. 6. (LW: 11) 11. South Carolina (6-6): Despite rout at Clemson, the season is a step forward for Will Muschamp’s team. (LW: 9) 12. Mississippi State (5-7): Stunned Texas A&M and pummeled Mississippi in the final month of the season. (LW: 13)

TB Derrius Guice, LSU: Rushed 37 times for a school-record 285 yards and four TDs as the Tigers smacked Texas A&M on Thanksgiving night. QB Nick Fitzgerald, Mississippi State: Rushed for 258 yards and two TDs in an Egg Bowl throttling of Mississippi.







ALABAMA 29, FLORIDA 15: Derrick Henry rushed for 189 yards and No. 2 Alabama used a suffocating defense to get into the College Football Playoff for the second conseuctive season with a victory over No. 18 Florida.

ALABAMA 42, MISSOURI 13: QB Blake Sims completed 23 of 27 passes for 262 yards as Alabama pulled away with a 21-point fourth quarter. T.J. Yeldon and Derrick Henry each had a couple of touchdown runs.

AUBURN 59, MISSOURI 42: Tigers running back Tre Mason rushed for 304 yards and four touchdowns, helping Auburn follow up their “Kick Six” win over Alabama to reach the final BCS Championship Game.

ALABAMA 32, GEORGIA 28: AJ McCarron threw a 45-yard touchdown pass to Amari Cooper with 3:15 remaining, and No. 2 Alabama barely held on at the end, beating No. 3 Georgia to advance to the BCS title game.

Points for Vanderbilt in a 45-34 upset of Tennessee, its largest scoring output against an SEC team since managing 49 points against Mississippi State on Nov. 25, 1971.

13. Mississippi (5-7): Rebels have earned a place in the conversation of massively disappointing teams nationally. (LW: 12) 14. Missouri (4-8): The Tigers won two of their last three, and should be poised to push back to a bowl in 2017. (LW: 14)
