2011 Christmas Basket Fund ‘A Community Tradition’

Basket fund donations top $27,000 The spirit of giving this Christmas season is alive and well in the Alcorn County area. Donations continue to arrive for the 16th annual Corinth Rotary Club/Daily Corinthian Christmas Basket Fund. A $25,000 fundraising goal was set so 1,100 food baskets could be given to local families on Saturday, Dec. 10. It was a record number of baskets and the community has responded in a big way. Baskets were given away based upon the faith the goal would be reached and the faith has now turned into fact with the goal not only being reached, but surpassed. So far $27,270 has been raised. Donations include $100 from Four Seasons Garden Club; $100 from John R. and Susan Young in memory of James “Buddy” Crow, Frances Vivian Young and Phil M. Young and in honor of Mary Sue Crow; and $140 from employees of Corinth Dental in honor of Dr. and Mrs. Spencer Lee. Since the newspaper office is closed Christmas Day and Monday, donations will continue to be accepted through Tuesday and are a perfect time to make a tribute to a loved one. Contributions to the Christmas Basket Fund can be made “in honor of” or “in memory of” a special person or persons. The tribute will be published in the Daily Corinthian. Donations can be brought by the newspaper office or mailed to: Daily Corinthian, Attn.: Christmas Basket Fund, P.O. Box 1800, Corinth, MS 38835.

Lighthouse honors dedicated volunteer BY BRANT SAPPINGTON

When it comes to keeping the books at Corinth’s Lighthouse Foundation, it’s truly integrity that counts the most. For more than a decade, retired accountant and Corinth School District business manager Margaret Dennie has volunteered her time and talents to manage the finances of the busy non-profit organization. She was honored recently for her work by the foundation’s board with a reception recognizing her for her many years of service. “You won’t find anyone with more integrity and honesty and just pure dedication to what she does than Margaret Dennie,” said longtime Lighthouse Foundation board

member Jett Wilson. Foundation Executive Director Gary Caveness said it’s hard to imagine how the organization would function without her leadership and dedication. He said she works countless hours both in the office and at home without asking for anything in return and gives leaders the security of knowing the work is done right and done well. “There is simply no cutting corners,” said Caveness. He said Dennie’s work at the foundation goes beyond keeping the books, a job that has grown immensely over the last few years with the addition of the foundation’s thrift store and the growth of Please see DENNIE | 5A

Mother-daughter duo share holiday spirit BY ANGELA STOREY

The true spirit of Christmas is being shared in the Corinth area thanks to a mother and daughter who want to make the holidays brighter for others. An idea was born when Eliza Hill of Booneville began collecting snow globes for residents at Whitfield Nursing Home in Corinth. Along with snow globes, she found other gift ideas such as “poinsettias in a can,” which came with seeds

and dirt so residents could enjoy growing their own plants. For men, there were gifts of woodworking kits complete with glue and wood so they could build little boats. The gifts were delivered to Whitfield Nursing Home by Eliza Hill, her 5-year-old son, Bo Hill, a preschooler at First Methodist Church in Booneville, and Eliza’s mother, Sherri Rutledge of Corinth. The residents were given the opportunity to select the gift of

their choice. Also among the gifts was one little ballerina doll. “One woman selected it and was so happy with it. Everybody got exactly what they wanted,” said Rutledge. The residents also enjoyed interacting with Bo and hugging him as he helped deliver the gifts. The three generations did more than simply take gifts to residents. They made room-toroom visits where they talked with residents and listened as

they spoke about their lives and families and shared other thoughts. “When we first got there everybody was quiet and nobody would say much. By the time we left, six or seven people who’d been in their rooms came out smiling, thanking us and saying goodbye. It was like a different place,” she said. Rutledge said her daughter came up with the idea of Please see GLOBES | 5A

The new management of the Corinth-Alcorn Animal Shelter received some glowing praise from the mayor of Farmington at a recent meeting of town officials. “You have been doing a good job since the first day. It’s a thousand percent better than it was,” Mayor Dale Fortenberry said to shelter board member Arlene Crawford, during Crawford’s update to the board. Crawford reported a “crazy month” of December at the shelter, with only 14 cats and about 30 dogs remaining — a decrease from the shelter’s 350 dogs and 250 cats in the previous month. “We’re almost out of animals to adopt,” she said. Another topic of Crawford’s report was the condition of the building. She said the new board has made great progress Please see BOARD | 5A

Corinth, Miss.

The Republican winner will move ahead in stealth BY DICK MORRIS AND EILEEN MCGANN In politics, as on the battlefield, the odds are so much tilted toward the attackers that those who would survive must advance in stealth. Precision-guided munitions have long dominated combat. If they can see you, they can shoot you down. Only stealth aircraft has a decent chance at survival. Similarly, the anti-incumbent bias in our current politics assures that anyone under attack most likely will come crashing down. That’s why the Republican nominating process has been so filled with brilliant candidacies that flame out and die. First it was the non-candidates who burst forth on the horizon only to fade in short order. Donald Trump, Mitch Daniels, Mike Huckabee . . . each had his day. Then Michele Bachmann entered the race, got herself on the cover of Time Magazine and faded (really through no fault of her own). Then it was Rick Perry’s turn. For several weeks in late August and early September, he seemed irresistible, until we got to know him better — and to learn how shallow he is. Herman Cain followed and ended in disaster. Now Newt Gingrich is going through his own baptism of fire. Under attack by $10 million worth of negative ads in Iowa and the national scorn of such influential players as Ann Coulter and National Review, Gingrich is falling down as the first caucus approaches. Gallup reports more than a 10-point fall from his heights nationally, and the latest polls in Iowa have him running behind both Romney and Ron Paul. Gingrich lacks the organization or money to handle the attacks. He doesn’t have Romney’s or Paul’s dedicated corps of supporters prepared to bring out the vote in Iowa since he never had the money or time to do real organizing there. He lacks the money to answer negative ads from virtually all of the other candidates. What may save Gingrich? Ron Paul! As the polls show Paul doing better and better in Iowa, Republicans will get scared of the prospect of that screwball winning their nomination. More and more, the genuine threat he poses to our national security; his desire to disarm America; his opposition to any defense in the War on Terror; and his apparent acquiescence in an Iranian nuclear weapon will loom large as the Iowa vote approaches. Look for the other candidates to ease up on Gingrich and go after Paul, the target du jour. Romney has it right. He lets others flame forth, momentarily hogging the media attention, and waits for their demise. He never emerges as the clear frontrunner, so he never draws the flack. It hits everybody else but him. Most likely, Romney will end up winning Iowa. Gingrich is too badly damaged, and Paul is about to be. After that, Romney will win New Hampshire. Will the contest then be over? Not likely. Voters haven’t recovered from their love affair with Newt or their dislike of Romneycare and of Mitt’s former pro-choice position. Look for a buyer’s remorse to set in as South Carolina approaches. Romney won’t be able to hide behind another candidate, and the flack will come his way. Then, look for Gingrich to get back into the race. The motto: Advance in stealth. Dick Morris, former advisor to the Clinton administration, is a commentator and author of “Rewriting History.” He is also a columnist for the New York Post and The Hill. His wife, Eileen McGann is an attorney and consultant.

Prayer for today Gracious, loving and merciful God, on this Christmas Eve, as the light of your Word penetrates our hearts, as we are reminded of the gift of life and faith, we open ourselves up to your Spirit and give you thanks. We are grateful, Lord Jesus, that your story has become our story, and we celebrate your birth. Continue, we pray, to instill in us a profound sense of your abiding presence, and help us to take to heart the wonder of your love, that we may walk in your ways and delight in your will. Help us, Lord God, to be the faithful, gracious, loving, giving and forgiving people you would have us be. Amen.

A verse to share And this is the sign unto you: Ye shall find a babe wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men in whom he is well pleased. — Luke 2:12-14

sorship of the press, denial of women’s rights — these seem to be the norm. To be free means to rail against such injustice. Christians believe Jesus came to set us free from sin. Those who have died in our wars fought and gave their lives that we might have our many freedoms, including the religious freedom to hear and accept or reject His message. Passing Arlington, I recall a line from one of our wonderful patriotic songs, “America, the Beautiful,” which says of our war dead, “O beautiful for heroes proved in liberating strife, who more than self their country loved, and mercy more than life!” In a narcissistic age this may seem odd, even offensive to those whose favorite nouns are “I” and “me.” Perhaps that’s why so many of us don’t know anyone who has served in the military. It’s called military “service,” after all. Making money serves self. If we haven’t served in the armed forces, it is less likely

we would know people who are serving, or have served. I served, albeit not on the battlefield, making my contribution as part of Armed Forces Radio in the ‘60s. As the ads and emails suggest last-minute gift ideas, here’s a suggested gift that will last longer in your heart than any purchase you make for yourself or your family: Find someone who has lost a loved one to war and take them a present. It doesn’t have to be expensive. Tell them, “I wanted to bring you a gift in recognition of the gift your loved one gave our country.” If you don’t know anyone, search online for organizations that assist families whose loved ones paid the ultimate price for our country. If you do that, I suspect this Christmas will be unforgettable for the person on the receiving end of your compassion. It could also be a transforming event in your own life and a Christmas you will never forget. Readers may e-mail Cal Thomas at

Mass was a huge deal. Apparently, not anymore. So what’s going on? There is no question that secularism is on the rise in America, and the media are happy about it. Openly religious people like Tim Tebow are mocked. You are quickly branded a zealot if you talk up your faith in public. But if you act like one of Caligula’s running buddies, you are glorified as cool and with it. South Beach is in; Lourdes is out — assuming you actually know what Lourdes is. But the churches themselves have to share some of the blame. Too often, the person preaching at the pulpit does not have much to say, especially to younger people who are looking for life guidance. I mean, St. Paul had the Corinthians mesmerized, but that was before the Internet, cable

and BlackBerrys. Paul had the stage to himself. Not much competition in ancient Syria. Today, the challenge is to get the attention of the faithful, and that takes some doing. Christmas seems to be a good place to start. Jesus changed the entire world in fewer than 35 years. How did the guy do it? Talk about a great narrative. What did a baby born into poverty possess that persuaded billions all over the world to believe in his philosophy? That’s something to think about on the birthday of the most influential man who ever lived. Veteran TV news anchor Bill O’Reilly is host of the Fox News show “The O’Reilly Factor” and author of the book “Pinheads and Patriots: Where You Stand in the Age of Obama.”

Foundation board member and treasurer Terry Cartwright said it’s amazing to see how hard she works throughout the year. He said it’s clear the work has become a calling for her and they are so grateful to have her. “She’s so very important to the Lighthouse. We’re just blessed to have her,” he said. Board member Marcus Simmons said it’s Dennie’s devotion to the work and the mission of the foundation to reach out to those struggling in the community that set her apart. “She’s so wonderful. She’s just so devoted,” he said. Simmons said Dennie is blessed with the gift of being able to be cross all kinds of barriers and work well

with everyone who comes through the foundation’s doors. “She just can communicate and get along with everybody. She’s just a wonderful person. She’d be so hard to replace,” he said. Board member Phil Little said he’s known Dennie for more than a decade and seen the kind of person she is and her love and dedication to the foundation. He said it’s a true blessing that someone with her capabilities is willing to donate their skills. “It’s rare that someone of her ability and talent and dedication will donate her time,” he said. Little, a CPA himself, said he’s always impressed with the clarity and attention to detail he sees in Dennie’s work. “She helps the Lighthouse to probably be one of the best-run non-profit organizations in the state,” he said. Little said it’s hard to overemphasize what she means to the foundation. “I just cannot imagine the Lighthouse without Miss Margaret Dennie,” he said.

BOARD: Resolution says all funds put into the shelter stay in the shelter, regardless of overseer CONTINUED FROM 1A

in improving their facility and it is now waterproof, the air circulation has improved and the electrical issues have been resolved. “It’s no longer a fire hazard,” Crawford said. Another topic of the shelter representatives’ report was the improved financial status of the shelter. Crawford cited a tax-exempt $3,000 grant from the American Humane Society. “We currently have $14,343 in the bank: a lot we raised and a lot from donations,” Crawford explained, including a $5,000 grant from Magnolia Regional Health Center. The final topic of the report was the shelter board’s goals for 2012. She said the board hopes to start construction

on a new shelter facility by springtime. The shelter board, she reported, made a resolution for all funds put into the shelter stays in the shelter — regardless of who is overseeing the facility. She closed with words of praise for the Farmington mayor. “We want to thank Mayor Fortenberry. I don’t know how he does it, but when we have a need, he finds a way to meet it and there is never a bill,” Crawford said. After the shelter update, Fortenberry again praised the work of the new board’s members. “They took over during a bad situation. They wiped up the spilled milk and went on,” he said. “And they provide a service that needs to be provided to this county.”

GLOBES: Duo would like to see spirit of giving continue CONTINUED FROM 1A

“Snow Globes for Nursing Homes” while working as an assistant with her husband, Dr. Tate Hill of Booneville, when he did eye exams at nursing homes in another town. “She wanted to give the residents an activity,” Rutledge said. “Eliza is so sweet with those older people. She just has a way with them. She can’t stand for anyone to be hurt or alone. She wants to bring brightness to lives. And these gifts and visits made the residents so happy,” Rutledge said. Rutledge and her daughter found the visit to Whitfield Nursing Home to be such a blessing to both them and the residents, they collected more snow globes and gifts and visited residents at Dogwood Plantation and Country Cottage in Corinth this past week. While Hill purchased many of the gifts herself, members of the community also played a part in this project by giving donations of $1 or more. “She went to some businesses and explained for $1 they would be giving a gift and a visit to a resident’s room. People like to give $1 to give a gift to an older person,” Rutledge said. Noyes Family Care Center gave a generous donation, enabling more gifts and visits for residents. When they visited the Country Cottage, Rutledge ran into people she had known as a child and did not know were living

Five-year-old Booneville pre-school student Bo Hill shares a hug with Whitfield Nursing Home resident Shirley Greer. there such as Marie Holly Anderson, Bud Johnson, Lynn Curlee, Virginia Bell, Florence Milam, Sam Adams and Jami Madden. Since the idea of “Snow Globes for Nursing Homes” has “snowballed,” Rutledge and her daughter would like to see this spirit of giving continue to grow to encompass all the nursing homes in Corinth. “It makes you want to go back because it made people so happy. We would like to make it even bigger and get more

people involved so people won’t have a lonely moment, especially at Christmas,” added Rutledge.

Lost cat found 2,000 miles from home Associated Press

NAPLES, Fla. — An orange striped tabby cat that ran away from its home in Florida has been found — more than 2,000 miles away on a snowy street in Colorado. Daniel Johns adopted the kitty in Florida in June

and named him Waylon. The feline escaped through a hole in a dryer vent and Johns thought he’d lost Waylon forever. It’s unclear how the cat made his way to Colorado. A good Samaritan found Waylon on a snowy street Wednesday and

brought it to the Foothills Animal Shelter in Golden, Colo. Workers at the shelter discovered that Waylon had a microchip — and that his registered owner was in Florida. Johns says he’s working to bring Waylon back to Florida.

Congress votes holiday OK of tax cut extension BY ANDREW TAYLOR Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Barely beating Santa’s sleigh, Congress delivered a lastminute holiday tax-cut extension to 160 million American wage-earners on Friday, just when it looked like they and millions of unemployed workers were going to be left with coal in their stockings. It was a major yearend political victory for President Barack Obama, a big slice of humble pie for House Republicans and a blow to House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, who’ll have an angry band of tea party lawmakers to deal with when Congress returns to Washington next month. Back-to-back voice vote approvals of the twomonth special measure by the Senate and House came in mere seconds with no debate, just days after House Republican leaders had insisted that reopening negotiations on a full-year bill was the only way to persuade them to prevent a tax increase on Jan. 1. Obama immediately signed the bill into law. “I said it was critical for Congress not to go home without preventing a tax increase on 160 million working Americans and I’m pleased to say that they got it done,” a buoyant looking Obama said at the White House. Actually most lawmakers were long gone. A token few showed up to make approval official. The legislation buys time for talks early next year on how to finance the yearlong extensions — negotiations that promise to be contentious, especially if Democrats continue to use Obama’s jobs agenda to

seek a political edge in the 2012 presidential and congressional campaigns. The measure will keep in place a 2 percentage point cut in the Social Security payroll tax — worth about $20 a week for a typical worker making $50,000 a year — and prevent almost 2 million unemployed people from losing jobless benefits averaging $300 a week. Doctors will win a reprieve from a 27 percent cut in their Medicare payments, the product of a 1997 cut that Congress has been unable to permanently fix. Republicans did claim a major victory, winning a provision that would require Obama to make a swift decision on whether to approve construction of the Canada-to-Texas Keystone XL oil pipeline, which could generate thousands of construction jobs. To stop construction, Obama, who had wanted to put the decision off until after the 2012 election, would have to declare it was not in the nation’s interest. On Friday, an expressionless Boehner read from a piece of paper before him, gaveled the House’s last session of the year closed and stepped off the podium on the Democratic side. Boehner had been open to the Senate’s version of the legislation a week ago, even though it would have punted the issue into February and given Democrats a proven political issue. But tea party forces and some in his own leadership revolted, insisting on picking a holiday fight with Democrats, and Boehner felt no choice but to go along. The battle turned out to be a loser for House Republicans, earning the ire

of swing voters and many in the GOP establishment, but when Boehner capitulated on Thursday he then felt the lash from hard-core conservatives. “Even though there is plenty of evidence this is a bad deal for America ... the House has caved yet again to the president and Senate Democrats,” said Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Kan. Meanwhile, Democratic Senate leader Harry Reid of Nevada did a victory lap, twisting the knife into tea party Republicans. “I hope this Congress has had a very good learning experience, especially those who are newer to this body,” Reid said. “Everything we do around here does not have to wind up in a fight.” A full-year extension of the tax cut had been embraced by virtually every lawmaker in both the House and Senate but had been derailed in a quarrel over demands by House Republicans. Senate leaders of both parties had tried to barter their own yearlong agreement a week ago but failed, instead agreeing upon a 60-day measure to buy time for talks next year. House GOP arguments about the legislative process and what the “uncertainty” of a two-month extension would mean for businesses seemed lame to many people when compared to the consequences of raising taxes and cutting off jobless benefits in the middle of the holiday season, and Obama and the Democrats were hard on the offensive. House Republicans finally resorted to a technical fix and the fact that Reid would name negotiators on the GOP’s yearlong measure as reasons to reverse course and embrace the Senate measure.

Standard & Poor's releases its S&P/Case-Shiller index of home prices for October on Tuesday. The key question for investors is whether a recent downturn in prices for most of the 20 cities tracked in the index continued in October. The September index showed that home prices fell on a monthly basis in 17 of the 20 cities. It was the first drop after five consecutive months in which at least half the cities in the survey showed monthly gains.

Better economic outlook? A healthier job market and cheaper gas have consumers feeling better about the economy. Consumer confidence surged in November to its highest level since July. On Tuesday, we find out if the good economic vibes are holding up when the Conference Board reports its consumer confidence index for December. Economists expect the reading to rise to 58. But some perspective: It takes a reading of 90 or better to indicate that the economy is on solid footing.

Pending home sales

The National Association of Reindex altors releases its pending home 94 sales index for November on 92 Thursday. The index shot up in October as the number of Ameri90 90.9 cans who signed contracts to buy homes rose to its highest level in a 88 year. Another increase could sig86 nal a pickup in home sales â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but it isn't a sure bet. A growing num84 ber of buyers have been canceling contracts after appraisals showed 82 J that the homes were worth less than the price they agreed to pay.

10A â&#x20AC;˘ Saturday, December, 2011 â&#x20AC;˘ Daily Corinthian

Walker honored for 25 years at Hamilton-Ryker

Gratitude for how rich life remains

Special to the Daily Corinthian


MARTIN, Tenn. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Hamilton-Ryker Company, one of the Southeastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest human resource providers for over 40 years, recently honored one of their key employees, Dedra Walker, for her 25th anniversary with the company. Walker, recently promoted to an executive leadership position with the company as director of staffing operationsCommercial Division, has been employed by Hamilton-Ryker since 1986 when she started with the company as one of their temporary employees. She worked at the corporate office in the accounting department and then opened the Corinth office in the early 90s. She has been an integral part of every major development of Hamilton-Rykerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Commercial Division over the past 25 years. Walkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current role is to oversee all commercial staffing operations for their 16

Come Christmas morning, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be an extravagant pile of gifts heaped beneath our shining tree, symbolic of that wonderful line from Luke: â&#x20AC;&#x153;pressed down . . . and overflowing . . .â&#x20AC;? But all I have to do is to sit still and I am almost overwhelmed by how rich my life is. There are the biggies to be thankful for. The little stuff, too. I am grateful for chocolate and for pens that work and for potted plants on the windowsills in winter. For grinning dogs who are so happy when we come home. For a home to come home to. For blue skies and for green woods. For chicken eggs that are near perfect and for leaves that turn in the fall. For oddball inventions like scissors and dental floss and twinkling Christmas lights -and the brilliance of my fellow men and women who dream them up. Sometimes I wish we

Dedra Walker commercial branch offices and works with executive management on all commercial staffing strategic issues. Customers of Hamilton-Ryker have come to know and love Dedraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vivacious personality and innovative methods in solving their problems. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Without a shadow of a doubt, Dedraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s level of service and passion for Hamilton-Rykerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s customers is our standard here,â&#x20AC;? said Kelly McCreight, president of HamiltonRyker. Walker is a long time resident of Corinth.

had the money to spend a long, cold February in Southern France. Exchange one of our sweltering summers for a romp throughout New Zealand. Or sail along the coast of Norway. But, oh, I am so grateful I can pay my bills. And head off to a clean and well lit grocery store without a second thought. And splurge on creative fun-stuff like boxes of clear Christmas balls for the kids to paint. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll hang them on the wispy cedar Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve set up in the kitchen. I am so grateful for the morning rituals, coffee brewing, bread toasting. The rising sun. For hot water and lemon-scented dish detergent. For the Do Lists and the errands and the commitments that give structure and meaning to my days. For paper and books and emails and a host of friends with interests as varied as fox hunting and poetry and centering prayer. For the freedom to go to a church I love with its mix of ancient rituals and searching minds


and open hearts. I am grateful for the surprises. A dusting of snow in November. A new bug or the tiniest acorn I ever saw. A call from a long-lost juniorhigh-school very-best bud, whose voice I should have instantly known. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so glad my brother Dean can still mimic our brother Adam and our dad and our grandparents long dead and make me laugh or cry. Grateful for the opening notes of favorite Christmas carols, for flames flickering above the candles in the Advent wreaths, for cranberry reds and orange sweet potatoes, and the aroma of brown sugar and vanilla and butter baking. I am thankful that -eventually -- skunk stink fades away. Even off a wet dogâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fur. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m grateful I come from a family with so rich a cast of characters, from my Auntie Lois, who could not balance her checkbook, to my cousin Daphne, one of NASAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mathematicians. I am glad Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve known them all,

the buxom and the beanpoles, the athletes and the artists. Bright lawyers, gifted teachers, sweettalking salesmen, the scientists and the nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;er-dowells. I love the winding roads we drive to town on and the man I drive them with. We never turn the radio on when we head off together, enjoying a companionableness beyond words. I am so grateful for the day we met, for the courage I could hardly pull together to say yes, for the grace thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seen us through the 33 years we celebrated just a few days ago. And for the sons he brought into my life. When Paul, our oldest, died overseas last year from cancer, there could have been no gift more beautiful to me than those his brothers gave him of their time. Leaving his wife and children to do Christmas without him, David took off from a demanding job during the whole of that December to support Paul through the second grueling round of chemo.

Horoscopes by Holiday BY HOLIDAY MATHIS Paying respect to tradition is always a big theme during the Capricorn moon, which will be amplified on the eve of Christmas. The new moon rules the night, making the twinkling lights seem brighter for its disappearance. There will be a crisp, fresh feeling of ambition in the air. Visions of sugarplums will be overtaken by more practical intentions. ARIES (March 21-April 19). It may feel like everyone wants something from you at once. You’ll rise to the occasion. You’ll be quite amazing in your ability to address more than one need at a time. TAURUS (April 20May 20). You enjoy making people comfortable. You could use your charm to climb to new ranks, though more than likely, you’ll dedicate yourself to simply making others happy, and whatever happens after that is just icing on the cake. GEMINI (May 21June 21). You’ll have more company than you expected, but that’s OK because you get such a positive charge from friends. You’ll notice a loved one’s happy, dancing eyes and wonder what secrets lie behind them! CANCER (June 22July 22). Life will seem suddenly less complicated. You can feel that you have the potential for a good life ahead of you, and you sense that suc-

cess is really just a matter of continuing to choose what’s best for you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You know better than to pin your hopes on acquiring certain objects. You’d rather have the feeling that comes with knowing that you love and are loved. You’ll do what it takes to kindle that feeling now. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll have the strong sense that you’re in control of your own destiny. This is what liberty feels like. When you exercise your free and independent will, joy rings through you like a bell. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll do everything within your ability to make life the way you want it to be. There are others involved who won’t mind doing things your way. In fact, they’ll rather enjoy being a part of your vision. SCORPIO (Oct. 24Nov. 21). You’ll find simple ways to bring joy to others using the talents with which you were born. It’s a win-win: You delight in applying yourself in this way, and everyone you reach out to really appreciates it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Waste not a moment in apprehension. There is no use in wondering whether everything will turn out. It already has. There is no better place or time than now. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). Scientists have yet to figure out exactly why flowers make people smile. But they do. You’ll

use flowers and other methods to put a smile on the faces of those around you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18). You’ll be decisive, choosing as though you know you can’t get it wrong. In fact, you probably can’t. Whatever you pick, you can always pick something different next. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You believe that being alive is enough of a reason to celebrate. So when special occasions come up, you think either “What’s the big deal?” or “This is the biggest deal ever!” Which one is it this time? TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 24). You’ll systematically build on small victories, and before you know it, you’ve done something remarkable. Your accomplishments will give you a sense of pride. You’ll be available to those who need your support in 2012 and will be grateful to be in a position to help. Adventure happens in April and August. Libra and Aquarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 14, 3, 1 and 18. CANCER POWER RESOLUTION FOR 2012: Consider choosing just one this year, as you are more likely to keep a simple, singular intention than a series of demands written by your higher mind and distributed to the rest of Team You. You’ll find this one easy to keep, and its benefits will be far-reaching: Befriend your calendar. Actually, befriending it may not be enough. Make

your calendar your BFF, and lean heavily on it for all kinds of support and structure. Use it for more than keeping track of dentist and hair appointments. Use it to plot out your dreams and goals. Until a task is an actual “appointment,” it may as well not exist. Everything you want to do with your life -- and this year, you’ll be more ambitious than ever -- requires time and attention. Your calendar is the place to carve out the time. And remember, if for some reason things don’t go as planned, you can always reschedule. LUCKIEST DAYS OF THE YEAR: January 25, 26, 27; February 10, 11, 19; March 12, 25, 30; April 3, 4, 5; May 5, 6, 7; June 15, 28, 29; July 11, 12, 27; August 8, 9, 31; September 24, 29, 30; October 2, 3, 4; November 6, 20, 21; December 9, 15, 16. CELEBRITY PROFILES: Ryan Seacrest is arguably the hardestworking man in show business and the highest paid reality-show host to boot. Daily reporting on radio, television and the Internet keeps Seacrest’s wit and charm on constant duty. His natal sun, Mercury and Venus in the work-oriented sign of Capricorn are fueled by Mars and Neptune in the high-energy and passionate sign of Sagittarius.

Wife demurs advances made by men reconnecting online DEAR ABBY: I have been happily married for more than 20 years. I joined an online social network to keep in touch with family, friends and my kids who are in college. I love the convenience, but I’m in a quandary. A number of men from my past (some I dated and some not) have contacted me online with their phone numbers and asked me to call them. I was flattered at first, but now I think phone communication would be inviting trouble. I politely inform friends who push the issue that I’m happy to catch up online, but out of respect for my husband and my marriage I don’t call men who send me their numbers. Most of them then drop further attempts at communication; others do not. My problem is it continues to happen. I don’t remember being that popular when I was young, so it has caught me off guard. I suspended my account several times, but reactivated it because I miss the connection with extended

family and friends. I’m getting turned off to responding to any Abigail “friend” r e q u e s t s Van Buren anymore Dear Abby because it seems that most men just want to recapture some youthful fantasy. How do I handle this? -- BLAST FROM THE PAST DEAR BLAST: You are handling it very well just the way you are. DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend, “Ian,” and I are in our 30s. Although we have been together for seven months, his family is not yet over his ex-wife. They invite her for dinner, share weekend visitation with Ian’s daughter with her, and remind him constantly that they are disappointed with his decision. Ian has moved on. He would like to cut all ties with his ex, but his family won’t allow it. He’s afraid if he puts his foot down it will destroy the already strained relationship he has with them. My family accepts Ian,

but his refuses to admit I exist. How do we deal with this? It’s Ian’s life, and he has the right to choose who he spends it with. -- INVISIBLE WOMAN IN PHILLY DEAR INVISIBLE WOMAN: Toughen up, grit your teeth and continue the relationship. Remember, because a child is involved, Ian cannot completely move on. As for his parents, accept that their grandchild’s mother will always be a part of their lives so get used to it. If this romance leads to the altar, you will meet Ian’s family at some point. DEAR ABBY: My friend “Cailin” is very sensitive and not very accepting. She’s also unforgiving and tends to get into stupid arguments about nothing. Since the sixth grade it has gotten even worse. There is a new girl in school who seems to be a really nice, friendly person. Cailin was the first one to meet her and she wouldn’t let anyone else sit with them. I told my mom about it and she said to just sit down with them both. Today I did what my mom said to do. When

Cailin saw us together, she was steaming. She ignored me for the rest of the day. I don’t want to keep the new girl, just share her. Why can’t Cailin and I both be friends with her? Is there any way I could talk to her? I’m considering talking to the dean of students. Would this be OK? -SHARING FRIENDS IN COLORADO DEAR SHARING FRIENDS: Cailin is immature, insecure and possessive. She’s afraid that if the new girl talks to other people, the girl will no longer like and depend on her. That’s why she was angry when you sat down with them. By all means discuss this with the dean of students. The dean may have a solution that will allow the new girl a chance to make friends with more of her classmates -- including you.

That’s what they’ll remember for the rest of their lives.” Southern Miss won a schoolrecord 11 games this season en route to capturing its fifth CUSA title by upsetting Houston 49-28 in the conference championship game behind Austin Davis’ four touchdown passes. It was the Golden Eagles’ first 10-win season since 1988. Despite the record year, Davis said the team isn’t done yet as Southern Miss makes its 10th straight postseason appearance and is looking to snap a two-bowl losing streak. “I would hate to end it on a bad note.

HONOLULU — As if being 5,500 miles from Hattiesburg and having Waikiki beach as a backyard wasn’t enough, Conference USA champion Southern Mississippi had to deal with even more distractions. The 22nd-ranked Golden Eagles (11-2) face Western Athletic Conference runnerup Nevada (7-5) in the Hawaii Bowl on Saturday in what will be the final game under coach Larry Fedora. “It’s going to be tough. There’s a piece of my heart and soul in this football team,” said Fedora, who is leaving after four seasons to lead North Carolina. “I deeply care about each and every one of those kids. ... But I do know, they’re going to look back at this sea-

ish strong and get No. 12,” said Davis, who has thrown for 3,331 yards and 28 touchdowns this year. Fedora said his team isn’t letting down after its big win over Houston. “You can go out and watch practice and you wouldn’t know if it was Aug. 5, the first day of practice for us, or if it was the next to the last practice. They’re still practicing the same way,” he said. “They understand what it takes. They understand how important it is. We’re not playing another game. We’re making history at Southern Miss.” Fedora is being replaced by South Carolina defensive coordinator Ellis Johnson, who was introduced in Hattiesburg while the team was in Hono-

lulu. “There’s a lot of distractions going on with this football team and their future. So that makes it difficult,” Fedora said. “The thing is, I’ve got to allow these seniors ... they’re going to be the ones that lead us through the distractions. I expect us to play as we do week in and week out.” While Southern Miss is making its first trip here since beating Hawaii in 1977, Nevada is no stranger to the islands, or the Hawaii Bowl. Nevada is making its seventh straight postseason appearance and 12th overall. It will be playing in the Hawaii Bowl for the third time since 2005. Nevada defeated CenPlease see USM | 3B

The Associated Press

IRVING, Texas — Tony Romo is on quite a roll, even though he has never had a winning December for the Dallas Cowboys. Right after their last game, owner Jerry Jones declared that it would be a career disappointment for him if the NFC East-leading Cowboys missed the playoffs this season when their quarterback is playing so well. “I just think anytime you’re in this position, where you have a chance to make the playoffs, it’s important to get it done,” Romo said. “It’s hard to get here. It’s also fun to be

his passes for 869 yards with eight touchdowns and no interceptions in that stretch. He has 22 TDs with only four picks his last 10 games. “I tell you what, he’s playing very, very good football right now,” Eagles coach Andy Reid said. “It’s a tribute to him and that whole offense there, but he’s putting that ball into small windows, doing a nice job with it.” After the Cowboys swept through their four November games, improving Romo’s career record as a starter in that month to 19-2, they lost their first two games in December when they missed field goals

at the end of regulation in both. Romo has a 10-14 record overall in December, and has never won more than two games in the last month of the calendar year. But his eight TDs this month are already more than he’s ever had in December. “It’s about us going out and winning football games, so I don’t think about any individual stats or any of that stuff,” Romo said. “Any time you step on the field, you’ve got to have confidence in your abilities as a team and, obviously, Please see ROMO | 3B

Colts’ win throws Luck sweepstakes up in air The Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS — All that good luck the Indianapolis Colts have received on the field these last two weeks could leave them with no Luck at all when the NFL draft rolls around. The Colts have won two straight games to fall into a tie with the Vikings and Rams for the league’s worst record and the chance to take Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck with the No. 1 pick. With Peyton Manning out for the year with a neck injury, the Colts lost their first 13 games of the season, and most figured Luck could start looking for an Indy-based realtor. Then a funny thing happened — the Colts started winning. The Colts beat Tennessee two weeks ago for their first win of the season. No big deal, right? They still had a game on two-win teams in Minnesota and St. Louis and didn’t have to deal with the ignominy of going winless for an entire season. Vikings fans were already dreaming of USC offensive tackle Matt Kalil coming in to protect Christian Ponder and clear a path for Adrian Peterson. With Sam Bradford under center, Rams fans were drooling over the prospects of bringing in Oklahoma State’s Justin Blackmon as the stud receiver he’s been missing early in his career. Then the Colts went out and won on Thursday night against the playoffbound Texans. What were they thinking?!? That was some of the outcry heard from fans and pundits after the victory, which many view as jeopardizing the franchise’s long-term health by risking losing out on

another All-Pro caliber quarterback in Luck to eventually replace the face of the franchise, albeit one who will turn 36 in March and has had multiple neck surgeries over the past two seasons. All of a sudden some Colts fans — particularly those who were showing up to Lucas Oil Stadium with blue No. 12 jerseys that had “Luck” written on the back — have an entirely different pain in their necks. “That’s not for the players to worry about,” Colts running back Joseph Addai said. “I don’t worry about that. I just go out and keep playing ball.” Now all three teams are tied for the fewest wins in the league, with the Vikings and Rams still to play this weekend. Minnesota has lost six in a row and plays at Washington on Saturday before hosting Chicago in the season finale on Jan. 1. The Rams figure to have a tough time in Pittsburgh on Saturday and with Philadelphia at home to end the season. The Colts hold the strength-of-schedule tiebreaker over Minnesota and St. Louis. So a loss at Jacksonville next week would clinch the No. 1 pick for Indianapolis. But the Jaguars haven’t exactly been hitting their stride as the season wears on. Rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert has been erratic and head coach Jack Del Rio has already been fired. “For one thing, not knowing what my future’s going to be, just wanting to get a win,” Colts receiver Reggie Wayne said after making the gamewinning touchdown catch with 19 seconds to play Thursday night. “Couldn’t get anything better than this.”

Sorry Reggie, but some fans would say that a 6-foot-4, 235-pound college star with a rocket right arm and a completion percentage of 70 percent trumps one more victory in a season that has been lost since the moment Manning went under the knife. And even though the Vikings and Rams both have already spent high first-round draft choices on young signal-callers in the last couple of years, they would have to at least consider Luck with the top pick. Scouts lavish praise on a prospect they call the best quarterback to come out of college since John Elway. Luck’s touchdown-to-interception ratio is almost 4 to 1, he calls his own plays for the Cardinal and takes puppies to visit senior citizens in hospice care. Well, that part about the puppies has not been confirmed, but you get the point. Should either the Vikings or Rams luck out and sneak into the top spot, they also could decide to stick with their young guns, trade down with another team eager to take Luck and stockpile picks to fill the numerous holes on each roster. Just look what the Chargers did in 2004 when the New York Giants so badly wanted Eli Manning. The Giants sent the Chargers draft picks that amounted to Philip Rivers, Shawne Merriman and Nate Kaeding to get their hands on a quarterback who would eventually lead them to a Super Bowl victory. Up until two weeks ago, the thought of having to make that decision seemed absurd. Then again, so did a Colts winning streak.

USC QB Barkley coming back The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Southern California quarterback Matt Barkley believed he was prepared to play in the NFL and the draft prognosticators agreed with him. He had skillfully guided the program through two years of NCAA sanctions, put up big numbers to add his name to the list of great Trojans quarterbacks. Barkley just wasn’t ready to leave. He still had some unfinished business at USC. Setting off a round of cheers at USC’s Heritage Hall, Barkley announced Thursday that he’s returning for his senior season, putting off the NFL for a chance to lead the Trojans from under the cloud of NCAA sanctions to a BCS bowl. “I am staying so I can finish what I started,” Barkley said. At 6-foot-2, 220 pounds and with a game that matured over three years at Troy, Barkley was projected as a high firstround pick in the NFL

draft, an enticement that had lured his predecessor, Mark Sanchez, after his junior season. Instead of following Sanchez’s footsteps, Barkley took the route of former USC quarterback Matt Leinart and Stanford’s Andrew Luck. Leinart returned to USC after winning the Heisman Trophy and a national championship, and led the Trojans to the 2005 BCS title game, where they lost to Texas. Luck came back this season after being the Heisman runner-up last year and took the Cardinal to the Fiesta Bowl while finishing second to Baylor’s Robert Griffin III in this year’s Heisman voting. Like those two, Barkley felt as though he still had goals he wanted to accomplish after leading the Trojans to a 10-2 record and a No. 5 ranking in The Associated Press poll. Barkley let USC coach Lane Kiffin know about his decision with a Christmas ornament that had a picture of the two together during this season’s

game against Colorado on one side and the words “One More Year” on the back. His announcement Thursday in front of about 200 people, including his family and Kiffin, set off a wave of applause and a quick burst from USC’s band as a pair of cheerleaders danced along. “That’s not an easy decision,” Kiffin said. “Not many people would do what Matt has done.” Barkley is the latest in a heralded lineup of USC quarterbacks that includes Carson Palmer, Leinart and Sanchez. He had an uneven first season with the Trojans, making some questionable decisions that led to 14 interceptions. Still, Barkley threw for over 2,700 yards and 15 touchdowns to become the only freshman semifinalist for the Davey O’Brien Award as the nation’s best quarterback. Barkley developed into a mature leader by his sophomore season, again throwing for over 2,700 yards, with 26 TDs.

Tennessee rallies to beat ETSU The Associated Press

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Cameron Tatum scored 13 points, and Tennessee hit all four of its free throws in the final minute to hang on to beat East Tennessee State 6663 on Friday night. The Buccaneers led throughout the first half and were up 59-51 when a layup by Trae Golden with 5:27 to play launched an 11-0 run for the Volunteers (5-6). Kenny Hall dunked with 2 minutes left to put Tennessee up 6059, and the Vols led the rest of the way. Hall

followed the basket up with a steal and a dish to Golden, who hit a dunk of his own, and Golden and Jordan McRae each hit a set of free throws to seal the victory. Adam Sollazzo hit a layup with 10 seconds left and attempted a 3-pointer with 2 seconds to go, but the ball hit the backboard and bounced away. Sollazzo led ETSU (5-6) with 19 points. ETSU, which hasn’t beat Tennessee since 1991, used a 7-0 run early in the game to take a 14-4 lead and lead by as many as 11 points in the

first half. The Bucs went to a zone defense that’s confounded the Vols for much of the season to stay in control of the game as their shooting cooled off. Tennessee went to its shooters. The Vols hit 6 of 12 from behind the arc in the first half, including three treys by Tatum before halftime. Tatum and Jordan McRae hit back-to-back 3s to trim a nine-point ETSU lead to 24-21 with 6:37 in the first half, and Tatum hit another 3 with 2:13 that knotted the score at 29 points.

USM: ‘We’ve been here. It’s great and beautiful and we love it here, but for us, it’s a business trip,’ CONTINUED FROM 1B

tral Florida 49-48 in overtime in 2005 and lost to SMU 45-10 in 2009. “We’ve been here. It’s great and beautiful and we love it here, but for us, it’s a business trip,” Nevada defensive tackle Brett Roy said. “We know what we’re here to do.” Featuring a high-powered offense that ranks fifth in the nation with 522.8 yards a game and eighth in rushing (251.8), Nevada is coming off a roller coaster year where it started 1-3 and won five straight before losing to Louisiana Tech and Utah State, blowing its chances for a conference title in its final season in the WAC before moving to the Mountain West Conference. “We want to get that bad taste out of our mouths,” said Roy, who is eighth in the nation in both sacks (10) and tackles for loss (18.5). “In order to do that, we have to go through Southern Miss, which is a

high-caliber team.” Quarterback Cody Fajardo, who didn’t start until the fifth game, runs Nevada’s potent pistol. He has passed for 1,647 yards and six scores while rushing for 680 yards and 11 TDs. Nevada also has Rishard Matthews, who has caught 91 passes for 1,364 yards and eight TDs. “They gain a lot of yards on the ground and through the air,” said Southern Miss linebacker Ronnie Thornton, who leads the team with 104 tackles. “They have a very mobile quarterback that can make plays on his own, even when things may seem like they break down.” The Wolf Pack will be trying to pressure Davis, who has a quartet of capable running backs and his favorite receivers, Kelvin Bolden and Ryan Balentine. “When they find something they can do, they exploit it and they do it often,” Roy said. “Our biggest focus is tightening our

loose ends and knowing if we do that, they don’t have anything to exploit. So we’ve got to play the most sound football we have this year because we are definitely a huge underdog.” Nevada coach Chris Ault said Southern Mississippi’s win over Houston is a good example. “They just destroyed them. That just shows you what kind of football team they are,” he said. “This Austin Davis is as good as we’ve seen. ... The defense does a great job getting around the ball. They’re really a fine football team.” Davis said, “We went out and played well on that day. But we also know if we don’t come ready to play in this game, it can go the other way, too.” Nevada is hoping Southern Miss had its fill of Hawaii and a week that included a luau and trip to Pearl Harbor. “Hopefully they’re all swimming, all tired and surfing up a storm,” Roy said.

Hawaii Bowl Capsule No. 22 Southern Mississippi (11-2) vs. Nevada (75), 8 p.m. (ESPN) Line: Southern Miss by 8. Series Record: 2-0 Southern Miss. WHAT’S AT STAKE Southern Miss is seeking a school-record 12th win, trying to snap a two-bowl losing streak and trying to send coach Larry Fedora out with a win. Fedora is leaving for North Carolina after the game. The Golden Eagles also want to prove they are one of the nation’s top teams after their upset win over previously unbeaten Houston for the Conference USA title. Nevada is trying to end on a high note after dropping two of its last three games, which cost the Wolf Pack a chance at the Western Athletic Conference title. KEY MATCHUP Southern Miss QB Austin Davis vs. Nevada defensive tackle Brett Roy. Roy, the leader of the Nevada defense with 10 sacks, will

FACTS & FIGURES Southern Miss is making its 22nd postseason appearance and is 9-12 overall. ... This is the seventh straight bowl appearance for the Wolf Pack. Nevada is 4-7 overall in the postseason. ...This will be the third meeting between the schools. The Golden Eagles won 35-19 in Hattiesburg in 1997 and won 55-28 in Reno in 1998. ... Southern Miss lost its last two bowl games, including a 31-29 defeat to Louisville in the St. Petersburg Bowl. ... With the Hawaii Bowl, the Golden Eagles are one of a dozen teams that have reached the postseason 10 straight years. ... Nevada has 18 players on its roster who have already earned degrees including quarterback Tyler Lantrip, who has a Master’s degree. Every senior who came to Nevada as a freshman has graduated. ... This will be the final WAC appearance for the Wolf Pack, who are moving to the Mountain West Conference next year.

ROMO: 1st playoff win came 2 years ago for Cowboys CONTINUED FROM 1B

individually. Our team continues to grow and get better.” Romo, in his sixth season as the Cowboys starter, got his first playoff victory two years ago when the Cowboys beat the Eagles in the regular-season finale and then again the following week in the NFC wildcard game. In 2006, after Romo became the starter seven games into the season, the Cowboys lost 21-20 in the playoffs at Seattle when Romo flubbed the hold on a short field-goal attempt and was tackled short of the end zone trying to scramble for a score. A year later in the postseason, the Cowboys were home as the No. 1 seed after a bye week and lost

27-21 to the Giants after Romo’s fourth-down pass with 9 seconds left was intercepted in the end zone. Romo was asked if he was worried they may be running out of chances and if there was a feeling of having to do it now. “I just think you have to put your head down and win football games and keep getting better as a team throughout the season. We’ll deal with the end of the stuff later,” Romo said. “It’s hard to be in this position, to be in first place this late in the year.“You need to go out and obviously finish it, and then start the whole new season once the playoffs begin,” he said. “So our objective is just keep getting better, put our heads down and go win a football game this week.” Notes: Defensive coor-

dinator Rob Ryan says the Cowboys are getting the “ultimate mulligan” with a chance to play Philadelphia again. The Eagles beat the Cowboys 34-7 and rolled up 495 yards in October after Ryan’s preseason comments calling the Eagles the “allhype team” and saying his squad would easily handle them. “ We had a bad game that day,” Ryan said. ... RB Felix Jones missed practice again Thursday because of tightness in his hamstring. Coach Jason Garrett hasn’t ruled Jones out of Saturday’s game even though he has been limited to working on the side and going to meetings this week. ... LB DeMarcus Ware and NT Jay Ratliff were both limited in practice for the second consecutive day, but are expected to play.

need to help contain and keep pressure on Davis, who has passed for 3,331 yards and 28 touchdowns while rushing for 332 yards and four TDs. The Wolf Pack can’t afford to allow Davis to get too comfortable in the pocket, or he’ll pick them apart as he did Houston. PLAYERS TO WATCH Nevada: QB Cody Fajardo. The WAC freshman of the year didn’t start until week five and led the Wolf Pack to five straight wins. He is the trigger man in the pistol and has thrown for 1,647 yards and six TDs while rushing for 680 yards and 11 scores. Southern Miss: LB Jamie Collins thrived under first-year defensive coordinator Dan Disch, recording 94 tackles, including 19.5 tackles for loss, to go with 6.5 sacks. The former defensive back who moved to linebacker last year is used as a “bandit” who can get down in stance as a lineman or stand.
