The school celebrated phase two of its partnership with the Blue Cross & Blue Shield Foundation of Mississippi Thursday, marking the acceptance of a second more than $300,000

grant from the organization and a continuation of an effort that has made the school a regional leader in fitness and health. College President Ricky Ford said the second phase of fund-

ing will allow the school to expand the fitNEss program further into the community. “We’re very pleased to be a part of it. It’s very important that we get this message out,

It’s not every day breakfast can be had with a motorcycleriding Santa. The Biker Awareness Group Giving Every Road Safety (BAGGERS) is hosting a breakfast and pictures with Santa event on Saturday from 8 a.m. until noon at North Corinth Baptist Church at 311 North Polk. Proceeds from the event will help a couple of local families in need as the holidays approach. It is one of several community outreach projects the dozen BAGGERS members take on each year. “This is our one thing we do at Christmastime,” said member Lisa Lambert. “Last year, we teamed with the fire department in Iuka and it benefitted families there.” This year, the church helped identify a couple of families to benefit from the event. The pancake breakfast will be served for a donation of any amount, while photos with Santa will cost $10 for a fiveby-seven sized picture that will be mailed to the purchaser. Children, adults and pets are all welcome to be in a photo. Lambert said pancakes and ba-

Boys & Girls Club president delivers message of hope BY BOBBY J. SMITH bsmith@dailycorinthian.com

Dark clouds are hanging over the youth of America, but the young people at the Boys & Girls Club are providing a silver lining. This was the message delivered by Boys & Girls Club of America President and CEO Jim Clark when he visited Corinth on Thursday. Clark was the guest speaker at the “Commitment to Excellence” reception celebrating 60 years of service to the

community by the Boys & Girls Club of Northeast Mississippi. “These kids today are facing, in some ways, seemingly insurmountable challenges,” said Clark. Clark said one in five kids now won’t graduate from high school. One in three children in America are overweight or obese. Kids are the poorest segment of the population, with almost 15 million children living in poverty. “Today this generation is

the first generation in our society that stand not to do as well as their parents have done,” Clark said. “Academically, kids are not going to be as educated as their parents are. Economically, they’re not going to earn as much. And when it comes to health they’re not going to live as long. This is the first time we’ve faced this as a society.” While these are some dark clouds hanging over the fu-

The soulful sound of R&B will rock Corinth this weekend. Set for 9 p.m. on Saturday at the Crossroads Arena, the concert will feature platinumselling singer-songwriter and Love and Hip-Hop Atlanta star Lyfe Jennings. The show will also feature several comedian friends of Jennings. “We are happy to have Lyfe coming to North Mississippi for the first time ever,” said promoter DeWayne Sorrell. “Lyfe puts on a great show. He not only sings, but also plays the guitar, bass and piano -- all of which is integrated into his music.”

Santa, discounted adoptions highlight event BY ZACK STEEN zsteen@dailycorinthian.com

Santa Claus is coming to the Corinth-Alcorn Animal Shelter this weekend. Kris Kringle, portrayed by Sonny Boatman, will be on location at the local animal shelter hearing Christmas wishes from both children and pets on Saturday. Santa is highlighting the shelter’s annual Christmas Open House set for 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event not only includes photos with Santa, but also discounted adoption rates on cats and dogs currently housed at the shelter. “We do this every year and it’s always very successful,” said Charlotte Doehner, volunteer director at the animal shelter. “Best part of the

event ... all adoption fees will be half price just in time for Christmas.” Adoption rates only available during the open house include $25 for adult dogs, $42.50 for puppies, $15 for adult cats and $20 for kittens. Each adoption price includes all shots and spaying or neutering of the animal. Refreshments will be served and a special bake sale for pets and people will take place during the event. “We welcome children and pets to come get their photo taken with Santa Claus,” said Doehner. Another upcoming shelter fundraiser, the McDaniel’s Christmas, will take place on Saturday, Dec. 10. Held at the home of Bobby Mc-

Daniel located at 25 County Road 105, just off Kendrick Road, in Corinth, the event will also include free photos with Santa, a puppy kissing booth and refreshments. The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., as well. Donations will be accepted at both holiday events to benefit the shelter. The local animal shelter is a nokill, non-profit organization on a mission to save the abused, neglected, abandoned and injured animals of Corinth and Alcorn County. (For more information or to make a donation to shelter, contact 662-284-5800, email alcornpets@ gmail.com or visit alcornpets. com.)

Photos with Santa will be offered on Saturday during the Corinth-Alcorn Animal Shelter’s Christmas Open House.

Northeast Mississippi Community College students take part in an exercise demonstration during a celebration of the launch of the second phase of the school’s campus and communitywide fitness effort.

FITNESS CONTINUED FROM 1A

dation Executive Director Sheila Grogan said

their vision for creating a healthier Mississippi is focused on using the colleges and universities

to serve as centerpieces for creating a culture of healthier living that extends into the broader

community. “Our goal is to build a culture of health and wellness on this campus that impacts the community and the K-12 students,â€? she said. The original grant announced in March 2015 brought a major expansion of the college’s fitness center along with implementation of exercise programs and eorts to encourage healthier lifestyle choices for students, faculty and sta. The new grant will continue that eort by adding additional equipment in the fitness center, creating marked walking trails throughout campus and a new facility for cooking

classes and adding new programs. Patti Cooper, division head for health sciences and social services and director of the grant program on campus, said they plan to remodel a building into a permanent demonstration kitchen where they will oer classes to the community on healthy cooking and how to make healthier choices in the kitchen. They are also moving further into the local schools with dedicated programs to be taught at elementary schools in the Booneville and Prentiss County districts aimed at helping children learn early on how to live a

healthy lifestyle. She said they want to start at the youngest level helping to create a culture of fitness and health responsibility that can grow and continue throughout life. NEMCC Fitness Center Director Joseph Pennington said he’s excited about all that’s been accomplished and about what the future holds for the program. He said they’re seeing lives being changed through the eort and he believes the new additions and expansions will help them reach more people both on campus and in the community to help develop better habits and a focus on fitness that will continue to grow.

Jennings continued to write music and rekindle his faith in God. Jennings served a little over 10 years behind bars. Two days after his release, Jennings auditioned at Showtime At The Apollo in New York City. He won the competition five times in a row, and soon signed a record deal with Columbia and Sony to begin his career. The concert will feature music from his new album “Tree of Lyfe� and hits like “Must Be Nice� and “Stick Up Kid�. Hosted by comedian

Wanda J and featuring comedian Caszell Williams, Piper The Comedian and comedian “EJ Love�, tickets are still available for the weekend performance. “We are expecting over 2,000 people to attend the concert this weekend with well over 1,000 guests from outside Corinth,� added Sorrell.

Critics have called Jennings a throwback to the R&B singers of the 1960s, including such artists Sam Cooke and Al Green, while his use of hip-hop beats and collaborations with rappers connects his music to contemporary developments in R&B. In 1992, Jennings went to prison for arson. As he states in his music, he turned his life around while incarcerated. There,

They are 20 percent more likely to go to college and 35 percent less likely to skip school â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the action that corresponds with dropping out of high school more than any other. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So, Boys & Girls Clubs work,â&#x20AC;? said Clark. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our alumni tell us, if not for the Boys & Girls Club, they wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even be here today.â&#x20AC;?

Today is Friday, Dec. 2, the 337th day of 2016. There are 29 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Dec. 2, 1816, the first savings bank in the United States, the Philadelphia Savings Fund Society, opened for business.

On this date: In 1804, Napoleon crowned himself Emperor of the French. In 1823, President James Monroe outlined his doctrine opposing European expansion in the Western Hemisphere. In 1859, militant abolitionist John Brown was hanged for his raid on Harpers Ferry the previous October. Artist Georges-Pierre Seurat was born in Paris. In 1927, Ford Motor Co. unveiled its Model A automobile that replaced its Model T. In 1939, New York Municipal Airport-LaGuardia Field (later LaGuardia Airport) went into operation as an airliner from Chicago landed at one minute past midnight. In 1942, an artificially created, self-sustaining nuclear chain reaction was demonstrated for the first time at the University of Chicago. In 1954, the U.S. Senate passed, 67-22, a resolution condemning Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy, R-Wis., saying he had “acted contrary to senatorial ethics and tended to bring the Senate into dishonor and disrepute.” In 1961, Cuban leader Fidel Castro declared

Booneville State officials to visit school district BOONEVILLE – Officials from the Mississippi Department of Education will visit “A” rated Booneville School District next week. Mississippi’s education leaders, including State Superintendent Dr. Carey Wright, will visit the local school district to congratulate students, teachers and administrators for being ranked as some of the best in the state. Booneville School District receives an “A” rating in the 2015-2016 school year accountability results issued by the Mississippi Department of Education. “Teachers and students have experienced a great deal of change in the last few years as we worked to improve public education in the state, and they have met and conquered any challenge,” said Wright. “It’s time to give them the recognition they deserve for what’s been accomplished so far.” Booneville is one of only 14 districts in the state to receive the “A” rating.  Oxford School District was the only other North Mississippi district to do so.  

Blue Mountain Colleges sign credit transfer agreement BLUE MOUNTAIN – Northeast Mississippi Community College and Blue Mountain College have agreed to allow students to transfer credits between the two colleges. Students participating in Northeast Mississippi Community College’s technical programs can now transfer up to 70 credits to Blue Mountain. Once students arrive at Blue Mountain, they will only be required to complete a minimum

Oxford Recovery treatment center proposed in area OXFORD — Lafayette County planners are recommending approval of a drug and alcohol treatment center for teenage boys, even after hearing protests from neighbors in the residential area where it would open. The Oxford Eagle reports the next step is for county supervisors to vote on the recommendation made by the planning commission. Developer Bryon Fikes wants to create Stonewater Addiction Recovery Center in the Clear Creek community of Lafayette County. It would have 10 fulltime and two part-time staff members to monitor patients. Several residents spoke Monday against the proposed facility. Dr. Rick Carlton bought a home just over a year ago that would be next to the treatment center. He said he is concerned about the safety of the neighborhood and a potential decrease in property values.  

Tupelo Men who helped esapees arrested TUPELO – Two former inmates were returned to the Lee County Jail Tuesday night, 10 days after they escaped from the downtown Tupelo facility. Two men accused of helping the escapees while they were on the run are also in custody, reported The Northeast Missis-

sippi Daily Journal. Michael Patterson, 31, of 109 Mark Ave., Nettleton; and Mickey Williams, 36, of 183 Pine Crest Ave., Plantersville; were booked back into the jail Nov. 29 at 11:10 p.m. on the charge of felony jail escape. “We got some information over the weekend that led us to the Belden area on the LeePontotoc county line,” said Lee County Sheriff Jim Johnson. “Along with the Pontotoc County Sheriff’s Office, we checked two residences in the area. We were able to bring in without incident the two escapees. “We also brought in the occupant of the house and another individual from the second location. Neither one of them has been charged so far.” According to jail records, Matthew Self, 21, of 10153 Highway 25, Aberdeen; and Eddie Strawbridge, 50, of 556 Strawbridge, Belden; were booked into the jail at the same time as Patterson and Williams. Johnson said charges are still pending for Self and Strawbridge.  

Starkville Teacher resigns after social media post STARKVILLE – An art teacher at an Oktibbeha County school has resigned following a controversial social media post following the election of Presidentelect Donald Trump, according to WTVA-TV. On Facebook, Connie Barber shared a post about celebrities who said they would move if Trump was elected. She added, “So GO!

OXFORD – More than 100 researchers gathered recently at the University of Mississippi for a two-day conference focused on advanced materials that could transform defense, aerospace and civil environments. Lecturers included representatives of NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, National Science Foundation’s Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research, or EPSCoR, Dynetics, Redstone Arsenal, U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center, Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation and the Army Research Laboratory. The event was co-sponsored by the UM School of Engineering and the Mississippi Research Consortium. The consortium of research universities includes UM, Jackson State University, Mississippi State University and the University of Southern Mississippi. “The Mississippi Research Consortium was delighted to help sponsor and participate in the Advanced Materials workshop last week,” said Gordon Cannon, vice president for research and T.W. Bennett Professor of Biochemistry at USM, and chair of the consortium. “It was gratifying to see so many of Mississippi’s university experts gathered to brainstorm ideas for new materials that might be central to a wide range (of) subjects such as energy, air and spacecraft design as well as defense projects. All of these programs have potential to positively impact Mississippi’s economy and job outlook. I would like to thank the University of Mississippi for hosting the event.”

Letter to the Editor

You can’t have it both ways with the state flag To the Editor: After reading Rick Smith’s letter about the state flag I am inclined to offer a differing opinion. After the Ole Miss Alabama game and after the Sugar Bowl last year I saw middle aged white women hugging Laquon Treadwell and Evan Engram , two of Ole Miss’ prominent black players, just like these players were their own sons. And for good reason-they are our sons. To perform this gesture of love and respect and to also support our state flag, which contains a symbol of racism, slavery, and hate would be the height of hypocrisy. A lot different from the days when I attended that school. We have thrown away most of the symbols of our past. Just to recruit great black players? I hope not. Engram just won the Conerly Award, and rightly so. Mr. Smith advocates the state ending funding for institutions not flying the state flag. Really? I can just see our state cutting off funding from Ole Miss, an institution that has brought Mississippi more good publicity and fame than any other. You can’t have it both ways. Choose one or the other. We either revel in our sordid past or we move forward to a brighter, smarter and more decent future. I support Ole Miss not flying the state flag. Someone once said that he didn’t listen to anyone who was under 25, because a person that young hadn’t lived long enough to know anything. Well, I disagree. Sometimes to become wiser and nobler you might have to become younger. Eddy Arnold Corinth

State must address inmate recidivism Officially, Mississippi says it doesn’t have much of a problem with inmates returning to prison after they get out. Its reported recidivism rate is 32 percent, less than half the national rate of 66 percent. The comparison, though, is flawed because Mississippi’s method of calculating the rate artificially understates the magnitude of the recidivism problem. Mississippi calculates its recidivism rate based on the number of inmates who return to prison within three years. The national rate is based on five years. Given the sluggish pace through which offenders are processed through the criminal justice system, three years is too short of a time frame to gauge how successfully former inmates are reintegrating into society. Keith Starrett, a former circuit judge from Pike County who now sits on the federal bench, describes recidivism in this state as “horrible.” Starrett chairs the Mississippi Reentry Council, which was established by the Legislature to recommend ways to smooth inmates’ return into society and reduce the chances that they will be back behind bars. Corrections Commissioner Marshall Fisher has approached this issue with an open mind and a willingness to do things differently. He wants to implement a re-entry program modeled on one that has been successful at Louisiana’s Angola State Penitentiary. There, inmates can spend two years training in marketable skills so that they have a better chance of getting a job when they come out. Fisher deserves the Legislature’s support in getting that and other programs — such as treating inmates’ mental health or addiction issues — either implemented or updated. The purpose of incarceration is as much rehabilitation as it is punishment. If inmates come out of prison with a reasonable chance of gaining lawful employment, they are less likely to return to prison. That’s beneficial for inmates and their families. It improves public safety and reduces how much taxpayer money is spent on corrections. The Enterprise-Journal McComb

Prayer for today Lord God, I pray that thou wilt provide me with thy indwelling peace. May it keep me reconciled to the decline of years, and enable me to bear the earthly separation from those whom I love. May I always have hope and trust in thee. Amen.

A verse to share Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever. –Psalm 23:6

What will Trump do for infrastructure? In May 1986, a 39-yearold Manhattan real estate developer named Donald Trump promised to get Wollman Rink in Central Park up and running -something the city government, despite spending $13 million, had failed to do for six years. Trump delivered, ahead of time and under a $3 million budget. The 70-year-old president-elect surely remembers that. His proposal for massive infrastructure spending holds out the opportunity to transform government spending programs much as he transformed the process of building an ice skating rink in the beautiful infrastructure Frederick W. Olmsted designed in the time of the Civil War. Federal transportation infrastructure programs, designed in the post-World War II years, have run out of gas. Gas tax receipts have been flagging because of decreases in driving and increased gas mileage requirements. Projects are doled out by congressional committee members, and environmental procedures hold up completion for years. As President Barack Obama said after his 2009 stimulus didn’t do much stimulating, “there’s no

such thing as shovel-ready projects.” Common Good’s Philip K. Howard points out Michael that governBarone ment agencies set out Columnist in 2008 to raise the Bayonne Bridge, which connects Staten Island and New Jersey, to permit new super-container ships coming through the widened Panama Canal to enter Port Newark. The widened canal was opened in June. Despite millions spent on plans and environmental approvals, the bridge hasn’t been raised yet. This is just one of many examples of how, as Howard writes, “decade-long review and permitting procedures more than double the effective cost of new infrastructure projects.” Congress, at the prodding of the Trump administration, could change that. Republicans may be wary of spending as much as Trump wants, and Democrats may be wary about changing some of the rules. But Trump could point out that Congress can change those rules. It could repeal the re-

quirements for environmental impact statements or require that they be completed within a given time with the default assumption that the project would go ahead otherwise. Congress could cut off endless appeals to the courts. That would put out of business groups that exist solely to bollix things up. With low interest rates, government could right now borrow cheaply for infrastructure. It still would have to pay off the debt, but not all of it if Congress encouraged infrastructure public-private partnerships. Having private money at risk also would increase the chance that infrastructure would be built where it is needed, not just in some senior committee member’s district. Another thing that makes infrastructure in the U.S. so much more expensive than in Canada, Australia and Europe is the Davis-Bacon Act, passed originally to exclude blacks from construction work and now employed to favor unions. Davis-Bacon requires government bureaucrats to calculate the “prevailing wage” in each of the 3,141 counties involved -- a lengthy and money-wasting process. A gifted dealmaker might

tell the unions that they can keep Davis-Bacon in, say, 50 counties -- which is where most of their members are concentrated -- but that it will go away for the rest of the country. Another thing Congress might want to consider is that good infrastructure requires not just construction but maintenance. Large hunks of Washington’s Metro subway are out of service these days because, as fatal accidents have shown, the system has been stinting on maintenance for 40 years. Maintenance and repair jobs in the long run will outnumber construction jobs, and they also tend to be more permanent. And maintenance will inevitably be concentrated on infrastructure that is actually useful and used. The beginning of an administration offers an opportunity to make sharp changes to processes previously considered unchangeable. Will the 45th president do for infrastructure what he did for Wollman Rink?

Look at a real e-mail scandal BY JOE CONASON Guest Columnist

For well over a year, Donald Trump ranted constantly about the woman he smeared as “Crooked Hillary,” insisting that her alleged disclosures of classified information -- although unintentional, harmless and ultimately deemed innocent by the FBI director -- were serious felonies for which she ought to be sent to prison. “Hillary Clinton’s corruption is on a scale we have never seen before,” he sputtered. “We must not let her take her criminal scheme into the Oval Office.” That Trump no longer threatens to abuse his office to prosecute her doesn’t change what he or his supporters said about her supposed crimes. The ugly screams of “Lock her up!” at the Republican convention still echo. But now Trump evidently believes that David Petraeus -- who pled guilty to charges that he intentionally revealed classified information to his mistress -- could be trusted to serve in the same sensitive post that Clinton once held.

retired general, who commanded U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan before serving as CIA director under President Obama, reportedly came very close to a felony conviction that would have sent him to prison for leaking top secrets. He also lied to FBI agents during their investigation of his misconduct, a crime that FBI director James Comey specifically said that Clinton did not commit. FBI investigators and Justice Department prosecutors wanted to indict Petraeus, and he only escaped that humiliating fate through a plea bargain -- a deal achieved, ironically enough, by David Kendall, the same Washington attorney who has long represented Bill and Hillary Clinton. When President Obama accepted Petraeus’ resignation from the CIA four years ago, the ostensible reason was the exposure of an extramarital affair with his biographer Paula Broadwell. But then a lengthy FBI investigation revealed that he had leaked classified documents to Broadwell -- which were found on her computer -- and that he had also given

her access to his CIA email account. The matter never went to trial, so the Justice Department presented no evidence concerning the nature of those documents or the damage their disclosure might have inflicted on U.S. national security. Trump and other Republicans have wrongly compared Clinton’s alleged offenses with those confessed by Petraeus, claiming that he was treated unfairly while she escaped punishment. But the differences are enormous, and point in Clinton’s favor. Unlike her case, there was no question that Petraeus knew the leaked documents were classified -- nor that he gave them intentionally to his mistress. His lies to the FBI constituted a separate but equally serious offense. Last year, The New York Times reported that career prosecutors and FBI officials were angry because Petraeus was allowed to plead guilty to a misdemeanor and avoid trial, although lower-level officials whose offenses were less egregious faced much harsher treatment. In the end, he was sentenced to probation and

a large fine. We shall see whether the same FBI officials who sought to smear the Clintons before Election Day will now speak out against Petraeus. Meanwhile Trump, whose advisers are battering each other over the nation’s top diplomatic post, is considering whether to appoint Petraeus to the job. As The Intercept observed, it is not even clear that the former CIA chief could qualify for the security clearances required to occupy a cabinet post. No one doubts that Petraeus is highly qualified -and he is preferable in many ways to Rudolph Giuliani, John Bolton, Mitt Romney and perhaps others whom Trump may be considering. But to float his name represents a new peak of hypocrisy, even for Donald Trump. Nobody should be surprised if the Senate Republicans who would have to confirm Petraeus go along with this charade, despite their own fervent denunciations of Hillary Clinton’s imaginary crimes. They are all capable of the same bogus indignation as the leader they have now embraced.

Santa Claus riding into Long-Lewis dealership BY BOBBY J. SMITH bsmith@dailycorinthian.com

A local car dealership invites the community to kick off the day of the Christmas parade with a visit with Santa Claus. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be at Long Lewis Ford Lin-

coln of Corinth from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. “We’ve talked to so many people who ask where Santa Claus would be because they didn’t have the money or the time to go out of town or go to the mall, so we’re just try-

ing to help people out and do it locally,” said Amber Luther, internet coordinator for Long Lewis. Kids of all ages can visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus and have their pictures taken. If parents are using their own

camera or phone photos are free. A photographer will be on hand to take photos for $5 for anyone who doesn’t have a camera. Hot chocolate and candy canes will be provided for free. Santa and the missus will be

in the main showroom at Long Lewis. “We want everyone to come, it doesn’t matter their ages,” said Luther. “Everyone can come out and have a good time here before the Christmas parade.”

The people in East Tennessee may seem a mite cliquish at first — but perhaps we are as well in West Tennessee and North Mississippi. Once you get to know the folks, though, they’ll invite you onto their porches and into their homes and almost demand that you eat some of that aforementioned cuisine. You’ll also discover — after the East Tennesseans warm up to you — that it also gets colder over there earlier in the fall than in West Tennessee, which is more influenced by the Gulf Stream. Therefore, the leaves there tend to change colors earlier. In the middle of October, I chaperoned a group of high school students on a trip to Knoxville to tour the campus of The University of Tennessee, where I taught English for five years. While the leaves were still mostly green in the still sweltering summer-like 80-degree temperatures on this side of the state, the leaves along I-40 on top of the Cumberland Plateau

and on Rockwood Mountain west of Crossville began to meld into golden and amber hues as we drove along. Finally, I believed it might be fall. Now, a mere month and a half since I visited East Tennessee, some of the prettiest of those leaves farther east are gone. The charred remains of the trees from which they fell lay scattered among the oncepeaceful, now-apocalyptic terrain where people made their homes and others vacationed with their families. Accordingly, the place holds a fondness for both residents and visitors alike. A cousin of the East Tennessean I married hails from Mobile, Alabama, and had the following to say about the area: “I grew up visiting the small town of Loudon on the banks of the Tennessee River in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains where my aunt and her family lived. She and her husband had three boys and we spent two weeks camping every summer. They

lived on the top of a hill which sloped to the river and had a pool and a huge patio where we learned to skateboard. My aunt had a big freezer with ice cream bars and a refrigerator full of Cokes, which we could have anytime without asking. But the best thing was those unfamiliar words of freedom: ‘You all go on outside now and don’t be bothering us until dinner time.’ Heaven!” For many, that description fits what that little segment of East Tennessee was to them: a sort of paradise. Now a swathe of it is gone, swallowed up in the flames that ravaged the even quieter, now desolate landscape where only memories remain.

Death toll from Tennessee wildfires increases BY ADAM BEAM AND JONATHAN MATTISE Associated Press

GATLINBURG, Tenn. — Crews discovered the remains of more people as they searched the rubble of wildfires that torched hundreds of homes and businesses near the Great Smoky Mountains, bringing the death toll to 11, officials said Thursday. Authorities set up a hotline for people to report missing friends and relatives, and after following up on dozens of leads, they said many of those people had been accounted for. They did not say whether they believe anyone else is still missing or may have died. “I think it’s fair to say that the search is winding down,” Sevier County Mayor Larry Waters said. “And hopefully we will not find any more.” He said the searches would likely be completed Friday. Nearly 24 hours of rain on Wednesday helped dampen the wildfires, but fire officials struck a cautious tone, saying people

shouldn’t have a false sense of security because months of drought have left the ground bone-dry and wildfires can rekindle. The trouble began Monday when a wildfire, likely caused by a person, spread from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park into the tourist city of Gatlinburg as hurricaneforce winds toppled trees and power lines, blowing embers in all directions. “We had trees going down everywhere, power lines, all those power lines were just like lighting a match because of the extreme drought conditions. So we went from nothing to over 20-plus structure fires in a matter of minutes. And that grew and that grew and that grew,” Gatlinburg Fire Chief Greg Miller said. More than 14,000 residents and visitors in Gatlinburg were forced to evacuate, and the typically bustling tourist city has been shuttered ever since. At least 700 buildings in the county have been damaged.

“Gatlinburg is the people; that’s what Gatlinburg is. It’s not the buildings, it’s not the stuff in the buildings,” Mayor Mike Werner said. “We’re gonna be back better than ever. Just be patient.” Starting Friday, homeowners, business owners, renters and lease holders will be allowed to go see most of their Gatlinburg properties, said City Manager Cindy Cameron Ogle. The city is hoping to open main roads to the general public Wednesday. There were other signs of recovery. Waters declared that Sevier County was “open for business.” In nearby Pigeon Forge, the Comedy House rented an electronic billboard message that said it was open for laughs, and a flyer at a hotel urged guests to check out the scenic Cades Cove loop. “Take a drive and remember what you love about the Smokies!” the flyer said. Great Smoky Mountains National Park Superintendent Cassius Cash has said the fires were “likely to be human-

caused” but he has refused to elaborate, saying only that the investigation continues. Agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are helping investigate the cause. About 10,000 acres, or 15 square miles, burned inside the country’s most visited national park. Another 6,000 acres were scorched outside of the park. One of the victims was identified as Alice Hagler. Her son Lyle Wood said his mother and brother lived in a home at Chalet Village in Gatlinburg and she frantically called his brother Monday night because the house had caught fire. The call dropped as Wood’s brother raced up the fiery mountain trying to get to his mother. He didn’t make it in time. “My mom was a very warm, loving, personable person. She never met a stranger. She would talk to anybody,” Wood said. Authorities said they were still working to identify the dead and did not release any details about how they were

killed. 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. A number of funds have been established to help victims of the wildfires, including one set up by the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee and another by country music legend and native Dolly Parton. The flames reached the doorstep of Dollywood, the theme park named after Parton, but the park was spared any significant damage and will reopen Friday. About 240 people stayed overnight in shelters, including Mark Howard, who was flat on his back in the hospital with pneumonia when the wildfires started. He called 911 when he heard his house was consumed. “I had no insurance. It’s a total loss,” the 57-year-old owner of a handyman business said.

Wisconsin election recount begins ‘Thank you’ tour has raucous start BY SCOTT BAUER Associated Press

MADISON, Wis. — The tedious task of recounting Wisconsin’s nearly 3 million votes for president began Thursday with scores of hastily hired temporary workers flipping through stacks of ballots as observers watched their every move. The action in Wisconsin could soon be duplicated in Michigan and Pennsylvania, where Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein was pushing for recounts. Donald Trump narrowly beat Hillary Clinton in all three states, but recounts were not expected to flip nearly enough votes to change the outcome in any of the states. The Wisconsin recount marked the first time in 16 years there was a candidate-driven recount of a presidential recount. But it doesn’t carry the same drama as the drama of the Florida presidential recount of

2000, when the outcome of the election between Al Gore and George W. Bush hung in the balance. “This is certainly not Bush v. Gore,” said Wisconsin’s chief elections administrator, Mike Haas. Even so, the campaigns for Trump, Clinton and Stein all had observers spread throughout the state to watch the process. The recount will have to move quickly. The federal deadline to certify the vote to avoid having the fate of Wisconsin’s 10 electoral votes decided by Congress is Dec. 13. Even if that were to happen, the votes would almost certainly go to Trump, since Republicans control both chambers of Congress. Most counties will manually recount the ballots, although Stein lost a court challenge this week to force hand recounts everywhere. The state’s largest county, Milwaukee, was recount-

ing the ballots by feeding them through the same machines that counted them on election night. In Dane County, where Clinton won 71 percent of the vote, the ballots were being counted by hand. Workers in Dane County are being paid $20 an hour and will work two shifts over about 12 hours a day to get the recount done by the deadline, said County Clerk Scott McDonell. He didn’t expect much change in the results. “I think we will be very close to what was reported on election night,” McDonell said Thursday. Clinton lost to Trump by about 22,000 votes in Wisconsin, or less than a percentage point. Stein has argued, without evidence, that irregularities in the votes in all three states suggest that there could have been tampering with the vote, perhaps through a well-coordinated, highly complex cyberattack.

CINCINNATI — Donald Trump returned to his campaign roots Thursday in his first major public appearance since Election Day, resembling the pugnacious, brawling campaigner more than the traditional presidentto-be as he held court in front of thousands of adoring fans — and even announced a Cabinet pick from the stage. Trump’s first stop on this “Thank you” tour to salute his supporters was in Ohio and, ever the showman, he made the surprise announcement that he will be offering the post of Defense Secretary to retired Marine Corps Gen. James Mattis. Trump said he was supposed to unveil that Monday, so he jokingly warned the Cincinnati crowd to “not tell anyone.” The raucous rallies during the Trump campaign road show often had the feel of a rock concert, and Thursday night in Cincinnati had all the hallmarks of a reunion tour: Trump took a veiled swipe at

fellow Republicans. He remembered his general election foe by joking, “We had fun fighting Hillary, didn’t we?” He boasted about size of his victory and repeatedly bashed the media. Protesters briefly interrupted the proceedings. And the crowd chanted “Build the Wall” and “Lock Her Up.” The president-elect had eased up on those campaign promises recently, suggesting the U.S.-Mexico border wall could be part-fence and indicating no willingness to pursue criminal charges against Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton. Perhaps befitting an encore presentation, the downtown arena that Trump packed in October — drawing a crowd that was one of the loudest of the campaign — was only about half-full Thursday night. But the thousands who were there cheered Trump as he declared to restore American to greatness, saying, “Now is not the time to downsize our dreams.” “Never again will anyone’s interests come be-

fore the interests of the American people. It’s not going to happen,” Trump thundered. “The old rules no longer apply. Anything we want for our country is now possible.” Trump did nothing to downplay expectations before he takes office, declaring that “America will start winning again, big league.” Much like he did during the stretch run of the campaign, he read from teleprompters, but he was bombastic as ever, spending more than a dozen minutes bragging about his victory before outlining his economic plan. He boasted about his wins in Midwest states that normally vote Democratic, declaring he didn’t just “break the blue wall, we shattered it.” He veered off-script to make fun of a protester, saying she was being ejected from the arena so “she could go back to Mommy.” He repeated his recent threat that, despite Constitutional protections, “if people burn the American flag, there should be consequences.”

Carnival’s Princess pays $40M fine MIAMI — Princess Cruise Lines will pay a $40 million penalty after pleading guilty to seven federal charges in an illegal ocean pollution case that involved one ship’s use of a socalled magic pipe to divert oily waste into the waters, authorities said Thursday. Miami U.S. Attorney Wifredo Ferrer told a news conference the penalty is the largest ever of its kind. A plea agreement filed in federal court also requires Carnival Corp., parent company of the Princess line, to submit 78 cruise ships across its eight brands to a five-year environmental compliance program overseen by a judge. Ferrer said the illegal practices came to light when an engineer aboard the Caribbean Princess discovered the “magic pipe” in 2013 off the coast of Great Britain and told investigators about it. Authorities later learned the 952-foot ship had been illegally discharging oily water into the ocean since 2005. “Our open seas are not dumping grounds for waste,” Ferrer said. “One thing we must never do is take our clear blue oceans for granted.” A single illegal discharge dumped 4,227 gallons of oil-contaminated waste about 20 miles off the coast of England on Aug. 26, 2013, according to court documents. The documents also show illegal practices were found on four other Princess ships, including use of clean ocean wa-

ter to fool onboard sensors that would otherwise detect dumping of improperly contaminated bilge water. Authorities say cost savings was the motive and that the ship’s officers and crew conspired to cover up what was going on.

Tunnel replacement will cost $4 billion BALTIMORE — The Federal Railroad Administration is proposing a $4 billion project to replace a 143-year-old Amtrak tunnel beneath Baltimore that is a major bottleneck in the Northeast Corridor between Boston and Washington. The agency said Thursday that the project is the preferred alternative in a final environmental impact statement . The administration says it expects to decide next spring whether to approve it. The agency says rebuilding the 1.4-mile Baltimore & Potomac Tunnel would allow for more and faster trains. The administration says the project would displace 22 residential properties, including five that are vacant. The Baltimore Sun reported in February that many people who spoke at a public hearing said they feared that the noise and vibration from the trains would disrupt their communities.

A Republican lawmaker plans to file legislation next week to prohibit dilation and evacuation, or “D&E,” a second trimester procedure that abortion supporters say is the safest and most common. “It’s barbaric, it’s savage, it’s cruel and it’s something we don’t need to support as a society,” said Rep.-elect Andy Mayberry, who is also president of Arkansas Right to Life, which calls the procedure “dismemberment abortion” and says the ban is its top legislative priority when lawmakers convene in January.

Superintendent fired, seeks reversal

Man faces charge for embezzlement

JACKSON — The lawyer for Greenville Superintendent Leeson Taylor says the school board has fired him, and that a meeting Tuesday with the school board was Taylor’s appeal. Brandon Dorsey told The Associated Press Thursday that the board has given Taylor a termination letter. Dorsey says he doesn’t immediately recall when the letter was sent. Dorsey says he expects the board to notify Taylor of a decision on the appeal within 10 days. Everett Chinn, a spokesman for the district, is referring comment to the board’s attorney, Dorian Taylor. She couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.

JACKSON — Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood says a 51-yearold Long Beach man has been arrested on one count of felony embezzlement. Hood said in a news release Thursday that Everette Waits was arrested Tuesday following his indictment by a Hancock County grand jury. He was booked into the Hancock County Detention Center with a bond set at $20,000. Hood said Waits is accused of accepting a personal check for $25,000 towards contracting work for a construction job and did not complete any of the work for a homeowner in Bay St. Louis. Waits allegedly converted the money to his own use.

Court rules against inmates in drug case

Miss. gets $33M in federal funds

ST. LOUIS — Two Mississippi death-row inmates suing for the identity of Missouri’s supplier of lethal injection drugs are studying their next options after their latest setback in federal court. A three-judge panel with the St. Louis-based 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in October that Missouri can keep its pentobarbital provider secret. Last week, the full 8th Circuit denied the inmates’ request to hear the matter. An attorney for the inmates, Jim Craig, said Thursday he’s weighing their next move, which could include asking the U.S. Supreme Court to intervene or dropping the litigation. The pentobarbital provider has argued it won’t supply states if its anonymity vanishes.

JACKSON — A federal grant totaling $33 million is coming to Mississippi to be used to beef up coordination among emergency responders statewide. Vicki Helfrich, executive director of the Mississippi Wireless Communications Commission, tells The Clarion-Ledger the money will be used to create and upgrade technology that will allow first responders in the state to view and share data. Helfrich says the data sharing could be operable as soon as the end of 2017.

Three men indicted on drug charges GULFPORT — Federal prosecutors say three Louisiana men have been indicted on drug

distribution charges following a series of breakins with sledge hammers at three Mississippi Coast pharmacies and one in Louisiana. The Sun Herald reports 26-year-old Shundrake McKeel and 30-yearold Lamarvin Haynes, both of Baton Rouge, and 37-year-old Justin McKeel, of Avondale, have each been indicted on a conspiracy charge and five counts of possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance. They’re accused of stealing and planning to sell oxycodone, hydrocodone, tapentadol, methadone and dextoamphetamine. They each face federal charges punishable by 10 or more years in prison. Chief U.S. District Judge Louis Guirola Jr. set a trial date Monday for his court calendar that starts Feb. 6.

James challenges Appeals Court loss JACKSON — Mississippi Court of Appeals Judge Ceola James is contesting her loss in the Nov. 8 election, saying her opponent violated state laws that require nonpartisan judicial races. James filed a lawsuit Monday against Latrice Westbrooks, who won the election; and Democratic U.S. Rep. Bennie Thompson, who campaigned for Westbrooks. The lawsuit says Westbrooks and Thompson “willfully and intentionally” aligned themselves politically by appearing together at events and by distributing a sample ballot recommending that people support Thompson in the U.S. House race and Westbrooks in the judicial race.

Oil and gas tracker Oilfield services company Baker Hughes issues today its latest weekly tally of U.S. oil and natural gas rigs. Depressed energy prices have curtailed exploration although the rig count has been rising in recent weeks. Last week, the number of rigs increased by five to 593. That total included 474 rigs exploring for oil and 118 seeking natural gas. One was listed as miscellaneous. The U.S. rig count peaked at 4,530 in 1981. It bottomed out in May at 404.

Man drains family savings to fund failing enterprise D E A R ABBY: My husband of 23 years, “Gerald,” quit his job to start his own law firm. Abigail He told me it only Van Buren about after he had quit. I have Dear Abby tried to be supportive, but seven months down the line, he has spent all our “rainy day” cash and earned only one paycheck. We have two teenagers, one who will be going to college in a year. I took a high-paying job a year ago to help pay down our mortgage and fund our son’s college expenses. Gerald claimed the bonus money he received when he quit his old job belonged to him to fund the new venture. He’s now saying that seven months is too little time to make any huge decisions, but we are now going to start liquidating our 401(k)s. This is where I draw the line. He needs to get a job. I have worked every year of our marriage and never quit. I feel like I’m living with a selfish stranger who calls me a “money-hungry stereotypical female” when I ask when he’ll get

paid. Is it time for me to take off the rose-colored glasses and file for divorce? -- STUCK IN HIS MIDLIFE CRISIS DEAR STUCK: Your husband should have discussed his career change with you before he quit the law firm. Do NOT allow him to push you into taking money from your 401(k). Because your husband hasn’t yet reached retirement age, when he liquidates his, there will be a penalty for early withdrawal. Consult an attorney -- other than your husband -- about what your next steps should be to protect yourself and your children because your spouse does not appear to be making rational decisions. DEAR ABBY: I am writing in response to the letter from “Loving Granddaughter” on July 2, who was asking for ways to prepare for the eventual passing of her grandparents, with whom she is very close. A way to help her cope with her premature grief would be to take time to sit down with her grandparents and video a personal interview with them. This “Interview With a Loved One” provides an opportunity to capture her favorite stories and memories as told by her grandparents in their own words. She might even hear some surpris-

ing new stories as well! We started doing this with my grandfather when he was first diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, before he started losing his memory. After he finally succumbed, going back to his interviews was a great way for our family to remember him in the way that he would have wanted to be remembered. -- JESSICA IN MISSOURI DEAR JESSICA: That’s a wonderful suggestion, one that I know will be appreciated by many of my readers. Thank you! DEAR ABBY: How do I introduce my unmarried daughter’s baby daddy? Can’t say “husband,” and can’t say “partner” since gays have claimed that word. So how do you define that new role? -- I’D LIKE YOU TO MEET ... DEAR MEET: When you introduce your grandchild’s daddy, use his name and say, “This is ‘John,’ ‘Jessica’s’ partner.” The term is not used exclusively by LGBT people, but by straight couples as well. 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 www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Horoscopes ARIES (March 21-April 19). You have a big heart. You can’t help but accommodate those who live inside it. If you don’t get to the goal, it’s because your loved one needed you more. You thought that was more important, and you were right. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll work from sun to moon -- no “casual Friday” for you. In your efforts, you’ll prove just how strong you are. Determination and tenacity are so much a part of your makeup that everyone comes to expect it from you. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). People have surprised you in good and bad ways, and now you’re not as surprised. In fact, now you can predict some behaviors you wish you couldn’t. But you can, and you should. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your space matters. You’re happiest in a thriving space that lives and grows along with you. The maintenance, the updates -- when you approach them with the right attitude, they bring you

pleasure and satisfaction. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). This is not a day to buy or sell anything in haste. Do your research. Wait to get the best price. An attitude of nonchalance doesn’t hurt either. You’re in a good position, but not if you don’t believe it. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’re a citizen of the world, and your exemplary manners will be your passport. Of course there are cultural differences to consider. Intention counts. You don’t have to get it perfect to get it right. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The best people you know have a dark side, and the worst people you know can be kind and wonderful, too. Your capacity for understanding the complexities will help you manage the day. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). A world in emotional order can plunge into unpredictable chaos with the introduction of one exciting dynamic. Such things can be like thrilling carnival attractions. Do not fear: Use your

ticket to ride. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Make thoughtful decisions. Stave away the fever of impulsivity. Don’t give in! If you feel yourself acting rashly, consider that you may feel differently when a few hours have passed. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Haggling for what you need can be a long, drawn-out, tedious process if the people involved just can’t give it to you. Maybe they don’t have it. Turn elsewhere and hang on for big, bright, beautiful results. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Quiet observation is called for. Tune into your nearest and dearest. Read the small changes in a loved one’s behavior and draw a conclusion. Then keep it to yourself for a while. Watch and see to test the truth. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The relationship that doesn’t help you is hurting you because it’s taking up your valuable attention. If you had a void there, you would fill it with more helpful forces.

Alabama coach Nick Saban is chasing history. He needs three more wins to secure his fifth national title in 10 seasons with the Crimson Tide and sixth championship overall, which would equal Bear Bryant for the most by any coach. Even with a loss, Alabama has a shot at claiming one of four spots in the College Football Playoff for the third year in a row. Florida is merely a spoiler, looking to earn a trip to the Sugar Bowl by pulling off a massive upset.

Key matchup Alabama defense vs. Florida QB Austin Appleby. The

Crimson Tide has allowed the fewest points (11.4 per game), rushing yards (68.7) and total yards (246.8) of any FBS team, and there’s little reason to believe the Gators have much chance of moving the ball against Saban’s stellar unit. Appleby is a graduate transfer from Purdue, starting his sixth game this season. The Gators have scored just one TD in their last 10 quarters.

Players to watch Alabama: QB Jalen Hurts. The freshman has completed 65.9 percent of his passes for 2,454 yards and 21 touchdowns, to go along with 840 yards and 12 TDs rushing.

Florida: CBs Teez Tabor and Quincy Wilson. Tabor has four interceptions this season and nine in his career, while Wilson has picked off three passes in 2016. Both have returned interceptions for touchdowns.

Facts and figures This will be the ninth time in the 25-year history of the SEC championship game that Alabama and Florida have met for the title. They split their previous eight meetings. ... Alabama defeated the Gators 29-15 in last year’s title game. ... Florida’s coach Jim McElwain is a former offensive coordinator under Saban at Alabama.

The Gators’ defense ranks in the top 10 national in three categories: third in passing yards (158.0), fifth in points (14.6) and sixth in total yards (291.9). ... Alabama has won 14 straight games over ranked opponents, the longest streak since Southern California won 16 straight from 200205. Florida has scored in 359 consecutive games, the third-longest streak in NCAA history. ... Alabama is 110-12 since the start of the 2008 season, which is 10 more wins than any other team during that period. Line: Alabama by 24. Series record: Alabama leads 25-14.

Hurts brings big plays, not mistakes BY JOHN ZENOR AP Sports Writer

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Jim McElwain never had a quarterback at Alabama quite like Jalen Hurts. The freshman has emerged as the top-ranked Crimson Tide’s most prolific rushing quarterback, a departure in style from the drop-back passers running the show during McElwain’s days as offensive coordinator in Tuscaloosa. Now, his 15th-ranked Florida Gators have to figure

out a way to contain Hurts and the Tide in Saturday’s Southeastern Conference championship game in Atlanta. “They’ve added a new dimension, obviously,” the Gators coach said. “This quarterback is something that’s real special, has created a lot of explosive plays not only for himself but obviously because you have to play that component, it loosens it up for some other guys. There isn’t really a weakness on that team.”

“I don’t think anybody on the team wants to play better at his position than Jalen Hurts.” Nick Saban Coach Now, though, the 6-foot2, 209-pound Hurts will be facing the best pass defense

of his young career. The Gators rank third nationally in pass defense efficiency, behind only playoff contenders Ohio State and Michigan — among the potential Tide opponents down the road. It’s a challenge for a youngster who has been a dynamic playmaker but hardly immune to mistakes — no surprise for a freshman, even one leading the defending national champions.

Patriots’ Gronkowski Jeff Gordon to drive in to have back surgery Rolex 24 at Daytona  Associated Press

BY KYLE HIGHTOWER AP Sports Writer

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Rob Gronkowski’s season might be over. The star Patriots tight end is having surgery for a herniated disk in his back, a person with knowledge of the details tells The Associated Press. The person spoke Thursday on condition of anonymity because the surgery has not yet been announced by

the team. The surgery was first reported by the Buffalo News. He’s likely to be out for eight weeks or more. The Super Bowl is scheduled for Houston on Feb. 5, should the Patriots get that far. Gronkowski sat out practice Wednesday with what listed as a back injury. He was absent from practice Please see SURGERY | 11

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Four-time NASCAR champion Jeff Gordon, who retired after the 2015 season, will drive in the Rolex 24 at Daytona for the first time in a decade.

MSU freshman arrested, suspended  Associated Press

STARKVILLE — Mississippi State freshman safety John Michael Hankerson is free on bond following his arrest for simple assault and trespassing. Multiple media outlets report MSU Police arrested Hankerson, of South Bend, Indiana, at 6:18 p.m. Wednesday. He was released after posting $1,000 bail. Authorities say the alleged incident involved a fellow student. Further details were not provided. In a statement, coach Dan Mullen says the university is aware of the incident and they’re gathering more information. Meanwhile, he says, Hankerson has been suspended indefinitely from all team activities. Hankerson, a 6-foot-1, 170-pound player who grew up in Starkville, redshirted this season.

again on Thursday. The injury is believed to have occurred during the Patriots’ loss to the Seahawks on Nov. 13, in which Gronkowski said he received “probably one of the hardest I’ve got hit in my career” from safety Earl Thomas. Gronk sat out the following week against San Francisco. He played part of the first half last week in New England’s win over the New York Jets, but did not make a reception. Gronkowski has

missed three games this season. He has 25 catches for 540 yards and three touchdowns. He’s also dealt with a hamstring injury in 2016. The 2014 Comeback Player of the Year, Gronkowski’s career has been plagued by injuries. A second-round draft pick in 2010, he has had ankle and knee surgery once, and three operations on his forearm. He has missed 20 games in his career and played many others while not 100 percent. Gronkowski is a threetime All-Pro.

helped drive the No. 10 Pontiac with Angelelli, car owner Wayne Taylor and Jan Magnussen to a third-place result. “When I announced I would no longer be competing full time in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, my hope was that I would get an opportunity like this to compete again in such a prestigious event with Konica Minolta and Wayne Taylor Racing with the hopes of winning it this time,” said Gordon, who works as a NASCAR television analyst. “I

know that Ricky and Jordan are super-fast, and I believe it will be a very strong combination.” The Wayne Taylor entry will compete in the prototype class. It will be one of three Cadillac DPi-V.R cars in the field. Three-time defending series champions Action Express Racing will field two Cadillacs. Gordon has participated in private test sessions with the team in recent weeks and is expected to take part in an upcoming IMSA-sanctioned test at Daytona International Speedway in two weeks.

HURTS CONTINUED FROM PAGE 10

doesn’t allow freshmen to speak to the media during the regular season, so Hurts’ own take on his play will have to wait until at least after the game.) Hurts has passed for 2,454 yards and 21 touchdowns. He has also already set the singleseason rushing record for an Alabama quarterback with 840 yards while accounting for half of the team’s 24 touchdowns on the ground and 30 percent of the Tide’s runs. That’s been good enough to lead the Tide to a perfect regular season and secure Hurts a spot among the 10 finalists for the Manning Award as the nation’s top quarterback. There’s plenty for him to fix as a passer before a likely playoff game, and certainly in the next couple of years. Hurts threw his eighth and ninth interceptions of the season in the first half against Auburn . That’s more than any Alabama quarterback since coach Saban’s first year, in 2007, when John Parker Wilson was picked off 12 times. Hurts has also fumbled nine times, losing five. He’s made more than enough plays to compensate for those mistakes, proving his resiliency along with his talent. Hurts is still learning on the job, after all, and Saban said he’s “very dedicated” to improv-

ing. “I don’t think anybody on the team wants to play better at his position than Jalen Hurts,” Saban said. “He wants to do well. You’re still talking about a guy that’s a freshman. You can’t really coach experience. There are some things that guys just have to learn by doing and sometimes the best way to learn it is when you make mistakes.” Hurts took over the starting job after the opener against USC, when he fumbled on his first snap. Former fivestar signee Blake Barnett started that game but soon left the program when it was clear Hurts was going to be the guy. He’s operating an offense with talented runners like Damien Harris and Bo Scarbrough and receiving threats like ArDarius Stewart and Calvin Ridley. But nobody has delivered more timely plays than Hurts. He has produced eight runs of 20plus yards and some big passing plays, though he hasn’t been particularly consistent with the deep ball. McElwain praises not only Hurts’ talent but his mental fortitude. “I do know they’ve done a heck of a job playing to his strengths,” he said. “He’s fun to watch, I’m telling you. He’s got a great command. He’s calm. He doesn’t get flustered. He takes what they give him.”

Passing rate suggests Brees is as good as ever BY BRETT MARTEL AP Sports Writer

METAIRIE, La. — Bad memories of Saints quarterback Drew Brees completing 32 of 39 passes against his team on a Super Bowl Sunday back in 2010 have come flooding back to Detroit Lions coach Jim Caldwell this week. More than half a decade has passed since Brees and the Saints beat Caldwell’s Indianapolis Colts in the NFL’s championship game. Brees had just turned 31. He was in his prime then — and still is. “He’s still obviously performing great,” Caldwell said Wednesday, as the Lions prepared to visit New Orleans on Sunday. “He spreads it around quite a bit, you know, and he’s accurate as a day is long. You can tell by his numbers he’s difficult to manage, difficult to handle.” Brees’ play might not be generating as much attention as it would if the Saints (5-6) weren’t a game below .500 and struggling to stay relevant in the NFC playoff picture. But the fact is he might very well break his 2011 completion rate record of 71.2 percent, and could very well wind up leading the NFL in yards and touchdowns passing while he’s at it.

After completing nearly 80 percent of his passes in New Orleans’ past two games, Brees has a season-long completion rate of 71.5 percent. Last Sunday, Brees completed nearly 78 percent of his passes (28 of 36) for 310 yards and four touchdowns against the Los Angeles Rams, who entered the game with the sixth-ranked pass defense in the league. That marked the fourth time this season Brees has completed 77.1 percent or more of his throws in a game this season. Accuracy is part of it, but that’s nothing new. Brees has been known to orchestrate accuracy competitions with fellow Saints QBs throughout training camp. In one appearance on “60 Minutes” he stood on the 20-yard line and fired a ball off the crossbar. In a “Sports Science” episode, he hit a target with accuracy similar to that of an archer. Apparently, he’s still got it. “I feel like I’ve become smarter, wiser through experience,” Brees said. “I work hard at my craft. The stats don’t always tell the story. “There’s certainly areas where I’m continuing to try to improve. But I think, all in all, I feel good. I feel good about my preparation, about my process, and that’s all I really focus on.”

Meanwhile, New Orleans has run the ball better lately, which forces defenses to respect playaction fakes. Also, Brees’ trio of young receivers has been blossoming, and running back Mark Ingram, who learned a thing or two about catching passes from his ex-NFL receiver father, has been a reliable option on screens and check-downs. When a quarterback’s completion rate is as high as Brees’ is, “there are a lot of things that go into it,” Lions safety Glover Quin said. “For one, if you’re running the ball well, then you’re probably going to have a lot of wide-open throws. “You can mix in playaction, mix in quick screens, you can mix in quick (outs) because (defenders) are so concentrated on stopping the run,” Quin said. “You can mix in a maxprotect and take a shot down the field. Then if the guys are catching the ball, the completion percentage is probably going to be high.” The offensive line has played pretty well, too, giving up 18 sacks, which is tied for sixth fewest in the NFL. “We have a generational player at quarterback. Like, you hope you get the one in five — that’s the level he’s at. For some reason he doesn’t get

that type of recognition,” Saints right tackle Zach Strief said. “You see lists and he’s not in the top five. I mean, it’s just like preposterous, right? If you can give that guy time, I don’t care who your receivers are and who the defense is, he will get it to some open guys.” Brees leads the NFL with 3,587 yards passing and 30 TDs, putting him on pace for 5,217 yards and about 44 TDs, which would be marginally below career highs he set in both categories in 2011. A key to his completion rate this season, Brees said, has come down to decision-making, such making multiple reads and often opting for the easiest throw. The veteran QB recalled an expression he hear from Marty Schottenheimer, his former coach in San Diego, who told him, “You never go broke taking a profit.” “At the end of the day, even if a completion gets you 2 or 3 yards, it’s better than taking that sack or having to throw the ball away,” Brees said. “It’s the difference between thirdand-5 and third-and-7 or third-and-8. That’s a big difference. “Completions are good. Positive plays are good,” Brees added. “Plus I think there’s a flow and a rhythm (for the offense) that goes into that as well.”

Thankful for Mary’s willing heart Thanksgiving slipped up on me and now it’s almost Christmas – and I’m not ready. But the Christmas stories Lora Ann and memories Huff always pour over me and get me Back Porch in the mood although I may not have made lots of preparation. Last Sunday’s sermon at our church focused on Luke’s account of the angel appearing to Mary to explain how she was highly favored and God would ask her to give birth to His son who would provide salvation for the people of the world. The story always reminds me of a very special person from my younger days. After graduating high school at Alcorn Central, I attended Wood College, a Methodist supported school in Mathiston, Miss. Dr. Felix Sutphin was the college president and, by God’s grace and a good work/study program, I was blessed to get to work in his office several hours every week to supplement my scholarship. It’s hard to describe this man, but to use a simple term that described King David, he was a man after God’s own heart. Dr. Sutphin tried to look at ev-

erything from a spiritual standpoint, and when he quoted verses from the Bible, it was obvious they were real to his heart, not just words that filled up a page. In my first year there, each student government committee chose a representative to be in the annual beauty review. One group nominated me – a very “dumb” move! No part of me physically, mentally or emotionally - was beauty review material. I reluctantly agreed to participate, I still don’t understand why, and my mother helped me choose fabric so I could make my dress for the occasion. As far as I know, there were no rental options at the time. Trying to make it a well-rounded event, they always included a talent review. I assumed I would sing a song even though several others would be singing and one of them could sing just like Julie Andrews – and I knew she would do a number from “The Sound of Music.” What had I gotten myself into??? Then my friend, Bro. Felix, called me into his office. Because of my long hair and quiet disposition, he thought it would just be wonderful if I wore blue and white attire and would reverently recite “The Magnificat” when it came time for my talent spot. His next chore was to explain to

an 18-year-old country girl exactly what The Magnificat was! I had read Mary’s song and heard sermons about it but had never heard the “official name.” Anyway, because of my tender heart for God and my great respect for Dr. Sutphin, I agreed to try. I explained that I could not act and was as scared as could be. He advised me to ask the speech and drama teacher (who I was totally afraid of) for help in emphasizing the phrases so I could express them more like Mary would have. I lived through the experience somehow. By no means did I do justice to Mary’s words of submission to the task before her, but I learned a little bit about her devotion to her Lord and her young, tender heart – and I was in awe that a man who was so schooled in theology and the Word of God had thought me worthy to quote those verses on stage in front of an auditorium full of people. Through the years I kept in touch with Bro. Felix - we always exchanged Christmas cards, and many times he mentioned the beauty review. In his last Christmas card, as he turned 96 years old on Christmas Day, he told me once again how special it was to remember my recitation of Mary’s Magnificat in the beauty review so many years before!

The important thing to him was not how I performed — the important part was that he was still amazed at Mary’s words, he loved the way she willfully agreed to allow God to use her. Felix Sutphin had followed that example as he, too, submitted to God’s leadership through the years, preaching the Word as well as living it daily as he worked to do whatever he could to help those around him. … So Christmas brings back Luke’s account of Mary’s words, “My soul doth magnify the Lord, and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour; for he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden…” When I recited those words on stage, all I had to do was quote them with expression – Mary quoted them and then had to experience the fulfillment of those words, which sadly included watching her son die on a cross in order to save the rest of us from our sins. Today I’m thankful for Mary’s words and her willingness, and I’m thankful that Jesus Christ cared enough for us to complete the plan of salvation once and for all. We can be sure “it is finished” just as He said. Lora Ann Huff is a Wenasoga resident and special columnist for the Daily Corinthian. She may be reached at 1774 CR 700, Corinth, MS 38834.

What does the word Gospel mean to you? Several years ago as my wife and I sat in Sunday School, o u r Gary t e a c h e r Andrews asked the question Devotionals what is worship? Several members had answers and all of these answers were good. Then we started a discussion on the Gospel and what it really means. In our small group discussion our members wanted an acronym for the word Gospel when all of a sudden I had an idea for the word that is the meaning of our salvation. Think about this; “Gospel – God’s only Son provides eternal life.” A few years later I found out I wasn’t the first to come up with the acronym but it doesn’t matter because it speaks the truth. This is the gospel, for without Jesus, God’s only Son, we would never have the opportunity of an eternal life with our Lord and Savior. Several years later a

It is my hope and desire that I will not just talk church and salvation but will start asking the question, “Do you know Jesus? Do you know what the word ‘Gospel’ stands for?” member of our small study group, went home to be with the Lord. The pastor, preaching her service, had looked through her Bible for her favorite passages when he came across the hand written explanation of the Gospel. He stated it was the first time he had heard the Gospel used this way but he would remind people from then on what the Gospel stands for. In these New Testament times many of us will talk with our friends and neighbors about the Gospel, but how many of us really talk to them about Jesus? We have these conversations but never ask the question, “Do you know Jesus personally and have you accepted Him in your heart as your Lord and Savior?” So many times we talk about the Gospel, the

church, the Bible and hit on every notation concerning salvation without asking that all important question, “Do you have Jesus in your heart?” My friend that has left our small group knew Jesus personally and I have no doubt that she is sitting at the feet of our glorious Lord singing praises to Him at this moment. It is my hope and desire that I will not just

talk church and salvation but will start asking the question, “Do you know Jesus? Do you know what the word ‘Gospel’ stands for?” I hope that you also will stand up for Christ in a dying world and ask all of your friends and neighbors, “Have you accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior?” Prayer: Father God, thank you for sending Jesus into this dying world so that we have the hope and understanding of spending eternity with you. Amen. (Gary Andrews is the author of Encouraging Words: 30-days in God’s Word. To obtain a copy go to his website www. gadevotionals.com.)

Pope plans 2018 visit to Ireland Associated Press

VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis confirmed plans Monday to make a 2018 trip to Ireland, a Roman Catholic country devastated by the clerical sex abuse scandal, where same-sex marriages are legal and a constitutional ban on abortion is being questioned. Francis confirmed the plans during a meeting with visiting Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny. “The pope has confirmed that he is coming to Ireland for the World Meeting of Families,” Kenny told reporters. The prime minister said talks were under way about whether Francis would visit Northern Ireland, which St. John Paul II avoided as pope in 1979 on security grounds. Kenny harshly criticized the Vatican in 2011 over what he called its “dysfunction” in responding to the abuse scandal, accusing the Holy See of frustrating an Irish investigation into the problem and seeking to preserve its own reputation instead. Ireland closed its embassy in what was seen as retaliation, though the embassy reopened in 2014 and Kenny said the diplomatic breakdown was over. Kenny said he agreed with Francis’ position on fighting sex abuse, calling the pope’s comments on the topic “very strong.”

WANNA BE “BLIND AND TOOTHLESS”? W.T. Hamilton, in his book about Job, stated that those who live by the eye-far-an-eye-and- a-tooth-for-a-tooth rule are the people most likely to be “blind and toothless” themselves. That is, they are more likely to be in altercations that leave them that way. Doctors report that after treating scores of young men involved in fist fights, they found that the most common injury was broken knuckles, or “boxer’s fracture”. Broken jaws were quite rare. Thus, the person throwing the punch is the most likely to get hurt. The eye-for-an-eye rule was a measure given to Moses and the other judges to use in various disputes under the old Law, not a rule to be used in personal living (Exodus 21:22-25, for example). After stating the rule, Jesus countered by saying, “But I tell you not to resist an evil person. But whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also” (Matt. 5:38-39). Was Jesus saying by this extreme example (and the two others which follow, vs 40-41) that we should let others run over us? No! Rather, He was saying (by hyperbole) that we should, with whatever measure it takes, avoid developing an obsession with getting even. He was protecting His disciples from the spirit of retaliation that eats away (like cancer) at one’s soul. When disciples James and John wanted to zap with fire an entire Samaritan village because they refused to give Jesus a place to lodge, Jesus rebuked the disciples by saying, “You don’t realize what manner of spirit has taken control of you” (Luke 9:51-56). Physical altercations, violent protests, tirades of anger, strivings to get even, clamor, and such, simply have no place in a Christian’s life (Ephesians 4:31-32). The only animal a grizzly bear will tolerate eating at his trough is a skunk. Why? He knows the high cost of getting even! Someone has correctly observed, “You cannot give someone a piece of your mind without giving away your peace of mind!” A traditional proverb advises, “If you seek revenge, dig two graves!” Jesus was not trying to protect our enemies when He told us to love them and pray for them--He was protecting us (Matt. 5:44-45). Let us seek real life in Jesus Christ. Study and worship with us. --Duane Ellis STRICKLAND CHURCH OF CHRIST 13 CR 218, GLEN, MS 38846-9749 (662)287-3328 MINISTER: BRAD DILLINGHAM; ASSOCIATE MINISTER: TERRY SMITH

Dear Annie: My brother and I were born on the same day, exactly one year apart. Our birthday fell on a Saturday this year. He told me that his girlfriend was going to take him out on his birthday and that we would celebrate together with our parents the following day for brunch. I said OK. My husband and I also went out to dinner for my birthday that Saturday night. As we were driving to the restaurant, I saw my dad standing across the street in front of a restaurant that my brother and I both love. My husband and I had reservations across the street. After we finished dinner, we decided to walk up and down the street. We happened to pass the restaurant I had seen my dad in front of. I decided to pop in and see whether my parents were there. I looked around and saw my brother with his girlfriend and our parents. He saw me and waved us over. When I got to their table, I was laughing. I thought it was funny to find the four of them there. My mother, under her breath, said, “I couldn’t tell you.” The girlfriend looked at me and said, “This is my doing. It’s my party.” I re-

Annie’s Mailbox plied, “That’s great.” We chatted briefly and left. The next day, my brother texted me, “Do not bring up last night.” I said, “OK, but why? I’m not angry. All is cool.” We met for birthday brunch. I asked my brother whether he told his girlfriend what I’d said. He told me to tell her. When I did, she replied with, “Well, it made the rest of the evening awkward.” That was it. I just laughed it off. Well, just recently, my brother told me I needed to apologize to his girlfriend. I said, “For what?” It was not a pleasant conversation. He was adamant that it was my fault. Just to appease my brother, I will apologize, but I just don’t know what to say and still feel I did not do anything wrong. Help. — Confused Dear Confused: I’m confused, too. The best way to straighten this out is just to call your brother’s girlfriend and say, “Did I offend you somehow? I really didn’t intend to, and I’m not sure where things went wrong.” Either it’s a

misunderstanding or she’s a little nuts. A candid conversation is the only way to figure it out. Dear Annie: I’m writing in reply to “Halloweary,” who complained about trick-or-treaters being too old, not in costume or out after 8 p.m. I grew up in the inner city, where parents worked multiple jobs and took multiple buses to get home. The understanding was that Halloween doorbell ringing ended at 9 p.m. Some kids are too poor for costumes. Some have parents who don’t care or aren’t really around for them because of addiction. As for the age aspect, I have known kids who looked like adults at age 9. My brother had a friend who had to have an adult desk in kindergarten because he didn’t fit in the type that the other kids had. Any child learns soon enough that he has to give up being a child. Let children remain children as long as possible, and take pity on those who are less fortunate. Your kindness may be their fondest childhood memory. — Be Kind Send your questions for Annie Lane to dearannie@creators.com.
