MBI investigates local shooting BY MARK BOEHLER

The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation (MBI) is investigating an Alcorn County shooting after a local woman was shot in the neck Monday night. The victim’s husband remains in custody in the Alcorn County Jail with charges expected to

be filed in the case, said Alcorn County Sheriff’s Department Investigator Tommy Hopkins. Since the shooting happened after the arrival of two Alcorn County sheriff’s deputies, a state MBI unit was called in to investigate, said Hopkins. Hopkins wouldn’t release the name of the victim or the depu-

ties Tuesday night, but he said more details would be released as the investigation progresses. The shooting victim was transferred to the Regional Medical Center (MED) in Memphis and family told Hopkins there was hope she would survive the shooting after a successful surgery.

Officers were called at 8:06 p.m. Monday to 3984 CR 100 — Kendrick Road — in the northeast part of the county to file a report on a prior disturbance, said Hopkins. “They wanted someone to do a report,” said the investigator. After the deputies arrived, “shots were fired and the wom-

an was struck in the neck,” he said. “There were shots from both directions.” “It’s unclear at this time what happened,” he said. “The victim’s husband is in custody.” Due to the circumstances, “we asked the state to handle the case for us,” added Hopkins.

Fire races through the Crossroads Full Gospel Church in Booneville early Tuesday morning, gutting the church’s main building.

‘It’s heartbreaking’: Pastor asks for prayers BY BRANT SAPPINGTON

A Prentiss County church is regrouping and looking toward the future after a massive fire gutted their main building the morning before Christmas. Fire tore through Crossroads Full Gospel Church just off of Meadow Creek Road in Booneville around 8 a.m. Wednesday, demolishing the interior of the church’s main auditorium and classroom building. Booneville Assistant Fire Chief Michael Rutherford said firefighters were dispatched around 8 a.m. when a neighbor saw flames coming from

the building and called 911. The exact cause of the fire remains under investigation, said Rutherford. Bro. Scott Bridges, associate pastor for the church, said he got a call from a church member who lives nearby shortly after 8 and raced to the scene to find it completely engulfed in flames. “It’s heartbreaking,” he said. The pastor said the congregation, which has around 70 members, is already making plans for Sunday worship service. He said they’re blessed that firefighters were able to keep

the fire contained to the main building and prevent it from spreading to the fellowship hall located just a few feet to the right of the burning structure. Bridges said he’s spoken with a friend who’s a pastor from another church who has offered to loan them pews to set up in the fellowship hall so they can hold services there on Sunday. He said he expects they’ll soon begin looking at plans for funding a new building in the near future and just asks the community to pray for them as they look to rebuild and continue to serve God.

TUPELO — The Tupelo police officer killed in the line of duty has Alcorn County ties. Officer Kevin “Gale” Stauffer, 38, was killed, and a 26-year-old fellow officer, whose name was not released, was in critical condition Tuesday after a shootout with suspected bank robbers. The officers arrived in separate cars to the robbery call from BancorpSouth around 3:15 p.m. Monday. They pursued the suspects’ car and those in the vehicle jumped out and began firing at the officers, said Tupelo Police Chief Bart Aguirre. The FBI has offered a reward of $50,000, which has been matched by BancorpSouth, for a total of $100,000. Stauffer had been with the Tupelo Police Department since 2005. He previously worked as a jailer for the Lee County Sheriff’s Office and was in the Louisiana Army National Guard. Stauffer lived for many of his younger years in Corinth. His grandfather, Dr. Roy McAlilly, was pastor of First United Methodist Church in Corinth during the early 1980s. Young Stauffer, his mother Debbie McAlilly Brangenburg and his sister, Caroline Stauffer Turney, all lived in Corinth. The family was active in Corinth school, church and community activities, according to current members of First United Methodist

Gale Stauffer Church. Stauffer’s mother was in charge of the Corinth Main Street program before moving to Tupelo to run the Main Street program there. Stauffer was a member of Corinth Boy Scout Troop 129, where he attained the rank of Eagle Scout. The city of Tupelo held a candlelight vigil for Stauffer on Christmas Day, The city said its was held to honor Stauffer and the unnamed wounded police officer shot while responding to the bank robbery. Stauffer’s funeral is scheduled for 11 a.m. Friday at the sanctuary of the First United Methodist Church in Tupelo. Burial, with military and law Please see OFFICER | 2

Mayor Jason Shelton said a bystander used a fallen officer’s radio to report the shooting. “We are grateful to the citizen who called for help and likely saved the life of the other officer,” Shelton said. Shantiqua Shumpert told the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal that she was in a car between the police and the robbers when a man walked around her car toward the officers. “The police told him to get back in the car, and the next thing I heard were shots,” she said.

A two vehicle accident sent three people to Magnolia Regional Health Center (MRHC) on Christmas Eve. The officer in charge was Lt. John Hall of the Corinth Police Department (CPD). He said three of the four passengers in the silver GMC Yukon had to be transported by ambulance after being rearended. “The Yukon was hit from behind by the blue Chevy Silverado truck when an unidentified car had stopped in front of the Yukon, forcing them to come to a complete stop in the left hand lane,” Hall said. “The truck tried to swerve into the right hand lane to miss the Yukon. However, the driver couldn’t avoid clipping the right rear end and that’s how the accident occurred.” Michael C. Bullock was the driver of the Silvarado. He was the only person in the vehicle and was not injured. Tommy Hill was the driver of the Yukon. Hill and his two minor sons, who were in the back of the SUV, were loaded onto stretchers with apparent neck injuries and were taken to MRHC by way of ambulance. Hill’s spouse, Glenda, who was on the front passengers side of the Yukon, was uninjured. The accident was on Cass St. in front of Rogers Supermarket. All persons involved in the wreck live in Alcorn County, according to Hall.

Christmas event shares food, fellowship BY JOSEPH MILLER

Today is Thursday, Dec. 26, the 360th day of 2013. There are five days left in the year. The seven-day African-American holiday Kwanzaa begins today. This is Boxing Day.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Dec. 26, 1776, the British suffered a major defeat in the Battle of Trenton during the Revolutionary War.

On this date: In 1799, former President George Washington was eulogized by Col. Henry Lee as “first in war, first in peace and first in the hearts of his countrymen.” In 1862, 38 Santee Sioux Indians were hanged in Mankato, Minn., for their roles in an uprising that had claimed the lives of hundreds of white settlers. The Civil War Battle of Chickasaw Bayou, resulting in a Confederate victory, began in Mississippi. In 1908, Jack Johnson became the first AfricanAmerican boxer to win the world heavyweight championship as he defeated Canadian Tommy Burns in Sydney, Australia. In 1933, Nissan Motor Co. was founded in Yokohama, Japan, as the Automobile Manufacturing Co. In 1943, the German battleship Scharnhorst was sunk by British naval forces during the Battle of the North Cape off Norway; only 36 of its crew of more than 1,900 survived. In 1944, during the World War II Battle of the Bulge, the embattled U.S. 101st Airborne Division in Bastogne, Belgium, was relieved by units of the 4th Armored Division. In 1966, Kwanzaa was first celebrated. In 1972, the 33rd president of the United States, Harry S. Truman, died in Kansas City, Mo., at age 88. In 1973, the demonpossession horror film “The Exorcist” was released. In 1996, 6-year-old beauty queen JonBenet Ramsey was found beaten and strangled in the basement of her family’s home in Boulder, Colo. (To date, the slaying remains unsolved.) In 2006, former President Gerald R. Ford died in Rancho Mirage, Calif., at age 93.

Ten years ago: An earthquake struck the historic Iranian city of Bam, killing at least 26,000 people. Three snowboarders were killed in an avalanche in Provo Canyon, Utah.

Some of the best memories on Christmas Day for some people has been the love they were shown by total strangers. Most of local residents spent the day with loved ones such as friends and family. However, for some folks, being alone for Christmas is something they have become accustomed. Not anymore. Tommy and Marea Wilson changed all that for the Crossroads area last year. The couple started an old-fashioned “Crossroads Christmas” for those who had no where to go for Christmas, and no one to share the day. As part of their Living Free Ministries way of giving back to the community, the Wilson family started this event in 2012 and watched over 300 people filter into their building in Corinth. “This is a special day for us for many reasons,” Tommy said at the event Wednesday. “We are just thankful to be here first off, thankful to have a place to fellowship, for all this food and the volunteers who are here to serve our guests . . . what a great day. A day to give praise for our Saviors birth together.” From 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. the Christmas spirit of love was in the air. Food was plentiful, along with smiles and hugs, while other activities

went on such as showing Christmas movies. “We expect to see over 300 people come through here again today,” Tommy added. “Movies will be played here in the front of the building on the big screen while folks eat at the tables, and another movie will be played in the back with our big screen.” A first year visitor to the Christmas event, Chris Raid from Corinth, said he was proud to be a part of the Living Free event. “I have been attending out here for a few months while living with my grandmother,” Raid said. “She passed away a few months ago so I started coming here for emotional and spiritual support. Tommy and his wife have been a blessing to me. A day like Christmas can be so depressing by yourself, but, they make it possible to where I don’t have to be.” Another guest, Randall Ragan from Chewalla, Tenn., explained why he was also so supportive of this event and the ministry of the Wilson family. “Early this year I decided to go the the Home of Grace down in Vancleave, Miss., and get a little help from them for an addiction that has had me bound for years,” said Ragan. “Being here is just another step. This is an awesome place and a place where you feel God and his love.” State Rep. Nick Bain of

Tommy Wilson of Living Free Ministries said 15 turkeys and five hams were brought to the Christmas Day event. Volunteers (from left) Rusty Manus, Bubba Harrell and Craig Johnson prepare turkey and ham, above. Folks gather in the front lobby area of Living Free Ministries on Christmas Day, left. Corinth was on hand to show his support for such a worthy cause. “I had Christmas with my family this morning and then came out here to enjoy this time of fellowship,” Bain said. “I have been Tommy’s attorney

for the board for about three years and have come to know him better through this ministry. I have a deep appreciation for what he does and just wanted to be apart of it.” Being apart of it was the pulling force being

the day’s event. Everyone who was on hand, either for volunteering, fellowship or whatever their reason — all agreed that being able to spend quality time with folks who care for one another was priceless.


being at an all time high. The trees will be transformed, broken down and converted into beneficial mulch. The fresh cedar mulch will be available to Corinth residents at no cost to use in their gardens and landscaping. Residents may dispose of their trees by either placing them curbside for pickup by the street department or by taking them directly

to the Inert landfill on Linden Street near the railroad. Hours are 7:15 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. All Christmas decorations and lights should be removed from the trees. “We won’t accept any trees that have decorations on them,” said Street Comissioner Philip Verdung. Pick up will start today and the trees will be grinded up and turned into mulch immediately after they have been collected.

Mississippians should embrace higher standards for students Carey Wright, Mississippi’s new state superintendent of K-12 education, has been crisscrossing the Magnolia State proclaiming she is “a huge advocate” of Common Core School Standards. She readily admits the standards are in dire need of advocates, since there is “a tremendous amount of misinformation” being circulated about Common Core. Common Core has become so contentious that Gov. Phil Bryant issued an executive order this week to assure Mississippians that their “classrooms will not become delivery vehicles for bureaucratic federal mandates.” While Wright said she supports Bryant’s position, she said his executive order doesn’t change the way public schools operate. Common Core, she said, is simply a set of higher standards for students. She stressed it is not a curricu! lum. It is up to individual school districts and their staff to put together curriculum and teaching methods to help students reach those standards. Parents and students in the Gulfport School District should be able to verify that. Gulfport has been implementing Common Core for the last three years. But most schools are just now taking on Common Core, which Wright says will “raise the level of rigor” in the classroom. Yet this effort to enhance the education of our children is under feverish attack. It is a regrettable target. We say that not because we are convinced Common Core will lift Mississippi students to new heights of achievement. We say it because it is obvious what we’ve been doing is not working for thousands of students. Frankly, if we had Wright’s job, we’d be insisting that all students wear uniforms and that there be zero tolerance for any behavior that disrupts a classroom. Under those conditions, we believe any set of standards would be more likely to be met. Sun Herald Biloxi

Prayer for today Gracious Father, give me the courage to live my life, and the endurance to overcome the disappointments that may come to me. May I not be neglectful of the great opportunities of which I am privileged to take advantage. May I not be pretentious of what I have not done, or boastful of what I am, but with my best ability live in truth. Amen.

A verse to share Whatever is true, ... noble, ... right, ... pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable — if anything is excellent or praiseworthy — think about such things. — Philippians 4:8

‘Duck Dynasty’ and the blacklist Pope Francis’ call for a truce notwithstanding, the culture war rages on in America. Last week, a Utah judge struck down part of the state’s anti-polygamy law, clearing the way for men to marry multiple spouses. Methodist pastor Frank Schaefer, defrocked for officiating at the same-sex marriage of his son, refused to recant, and joined a Dupont Circle congregation, declaring from the pulpit to repeated ovations Sunday, “Change is coming” to the United Methodist Church. Major media stories both. Yet these were skirmishes alongside the culture war clash last week over the remarks to GQ magazine of Phil Robertson, patriarch of the clan of “Duck Dynasty,” the wildly popular show on A&E. Using crude terms, but biblically correct arguments, Robertson told GQ what he thought of homosexuality and moral relativism. Said Robertson: “Everything is blurred on what’s right and what’s wrong. Sin becomes fine. ... Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men. ... “Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexuality offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers -- they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself.” The homosexual lobby GLAAD swiftly demanded that Robertson be purged

from “Duck Dynasty.” And A&E suspended him indefinitely. The backwas Patrick lash and Buchanan swift huge. FollowColumnist ers of “Duck Dynasty,” Evangelicals, politicians and free-speech champions arose to defend Robertson’s right to speak without punishment. Millions endorsed his views on what the Bible says and Christianity professes and promises. The battle revealed an immense and intense hostility in Middle America to the moral agenda being imposed by our cultural elites. While defenders of Robertson invoked the First Amendment, that is not the issue here. No one is denying Robertson his right to speak. What GLAAD wants to do is to blacklist Robertson, to punish him by taking away his podium, “Duck Dynasty.” The gay rights militants cannot silence him, but they do have the power to cost him his job and take away his megaphone so that his vast audience can no longer hear him. The blacklist of the Truman era did not deny the Hollywood Ten their right to produce movie scripts. It was an agreed-upon Hollywood policy not to commission or to use the work of unrepentant Communists as writers, producers or directors. Who were the Hollywood Ten? They were closet Communists, secret members of a Communist Party USA,

then a wholly owned subsidiary of the greatest mass murderer in history, Joseph Stalin. And of what were the Hollywood Ten guilty? When Stalinists were eradicating freedom and exterminating Eastern European Christians and overrunning China and murdering millions, as President Truman tried to rally the forces of freedom, the Hollywood Ten took the Fifth Amendment. They refused to repudiate Communism or name names of fellow Communists who were still reshaping the thinking of America from their upholstered perches in the film industry. Today, however, the Hollywood Ten are regarded as martyrs, moral heroes. Had they been secret Nazis rather than secret Stalinists in those years, they would likely not be so beloved of the Hollyleft. Contrast if you will the sins for which Phil Robertson is being blacklisted with those of the Hollywood Ten. He is a fundamentalist Christian professing his belief in what he holds to be Bible truths about sin, homosexuality, heaven and hell. For so doing, he is being censored by elites who wish to deny him access to the medium they largely control -- television. And what were the comparable sins of the Hollywood Ten? They were witting collaborators in a 70-year Communist conspiracy responsible for the murder of millions, which, in the 1940s, looked on the United States of America as the last impediment to world con-

quest. In that era, we were agreed that Communism and Communists were the enemies of America and mankind and should be regarded and treated as such. To our modern moral and cultural elites, it is those who condemn the values of GLAAD who are the enemies of decency and progress who ought to be fired and blacklisted to prevent their poisonous views from being disseminated. In the Hollywood of the late 1940s, Communism was persona non grata. In the 21st century, biblical Christianity is persona non grata. No, this is not the America we grew up in. And it is becoming less so. According to a CNN poll last week, while belief in God and the divinity of Christ is still shared by twothirds of Americans, that share — older, more Republican, less educated — is falling. Worldwide, too, Christianity at Christmas 2013 seems in a long retreat. Receding slowly in America, and moribund in Europe, Christianity is undergoing merciless persecutions in Africa and the Middle East -- from Nigeria to the Central African Republic to Egypt, Syria and Iraq. Compared to these folks suffering martyrdom for the faith, we have it easy here. So, Sursum Corda. Lift up your hearts. (Daily Corinthian columnist Patrick J. Buchanan is the author of “Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?” His column is syndicated nationally.)

A Christmas without rain Back at Thanksgiving, I asked my young niece Olivia if she’d ever seen in action the Rain Lamp in my mother’s living room. It rains glycerin drops down catgut strings while a Victorian lady swings in jerky motions inside the makebelieve shower. “I think so,” Olivia said. “Maybe.” Her uncertainty underlined for me the difference in children now and then. When my father bought the Rain Lamp -- we called it that with unfailing consistency and in uppercase -- a Christmas gift for Mother, I was 10. And I had never seen anything as wonderful as a lamp with moving parts and convincing raindrops. I would stand and watch it until somebody turned it off. Kids today, on the other hand, have seen teddy bears that have larger vocabularies than most Americans and computer games that let them crash cars and hit virtual baseballs. They

are not easily impressed with moving parts. Neither was my mother. My mother Rheta hated the Johnson Rain Lamp. I’m not sure Columnist why, except it was her practice each holiday to make sure presents were more practical than romantic, ours being a family with no budget for frills. It was a little like the scene in “A Christmas Story” when the movie father wins a sexy leg lamp and the mother finds it unbearably tacky. At our house, the Rain Lamp did not fit into Mother’s Early American decorating scheme. And it was somehow absurdly excessive, even for the 1960s. The Rain Lamp became a prominent symbol of my father’s annual failure at buying practical gifts for his wife. There was the coat with fur trim. Back to the

store it went. There was the string of pearls. Ditto. The Rain Lamp remained, I think, because even my mother was fascinated with its mechanics, though she never admitted it. It still stands five decades later on a table in the dining room, where nobody eats but nonetheless hallowed ground. I think it survived because of its fantasy feature, which makes one want to write a story about the smiling maiden so smitten with life that she continues to swing and dream in a downpour. Either that, or Daddy lost the receipt. As children we always sided with our father, because we knew in our hearts that Christmas is all about tacky and fanciful and you worry about the bills in January. Heck, we sided with him about everything. Mother was never better in her bad-cop role than at Christmas. And my father, never really known for frivolity, at Christmastime be-

came a somewhat jolly elf. He bought and hid the cocker spaniel puppies and assembled the bikes. He was The Man. Despite Olivia’s ambivalence, I should have insisted on turning on the rain and letting that lamp flood the dining room with good memories. I did not. What an event it always was to see the thing in full glory, the “Devil beating his wife” light, with the raindrops that looked a lot like hot teardrops falling. The Rain Lamp has to be a metaphor for something in childhood, though I’ve not yet figured out what. With my father gone now, Christmas will be a more solemn occasion. No Lionel trains hauling a pack of his cigarettes around the tree, or Davy Crockett hats, pellet guns or puppies. No more Rain Lamps.

Capitol’s dome set for 2-year renovation WASHINGTON — A world-famous symbol of democracy is going under cover, as workers start a two-year, $60 million renovation of the U.S. Capitol dome. Curved rows of scaffolds, like Saturn’s rings, will encircle it next spring, enabling contractors to strip multiple layers of paint and repair more than 1,000 cracks and broken pieces. The dome will remain illuminated at night and partly visible through the scaffolding and paint-capturing cloths. But the Washington icon -- and portions of the Rotunda’s painted ceiling that lies below -- will be significantly obscured for many months. The project is beginning as the Washington Monument sheds scaffolding that was used to repair damage from a 2011 earthquake. Half-completed when Abraham Lincoln stood beneath it to summon “the better angels of our nature� in 1861, the Capitol dome has since towered over Washington, which limits building heights to 130 feet. Time, however, has let water seep through hundreds of cracks. The water attacks cast iron, which “continues to rust and rust and rust,� said Stephen T. Ayers, Architect of the Capitol. This first major renovation in more than 50 years should add decades of structural integrity to the dome, which Ayers calls per-

haps “the most recognizable symbol across the globe.â€? The $60 million undertaking will heal inner wounds, he said, without changing the way the dome looks from the ground. Much of the work will be done at night and on weekends. It won’t be as flashy as the 1993 helicopter removal and return of the 19-foot Statue of Freedom from the dome’s top. The Capitol’s crowning piece is actually two domes, one nested under the other like Russian dolls, and separated by a web of cast iron braces hidden from view. Â

Health law not first with launch woes WASHINGTON — Although multiple problems have snarled the rollout of President Barack Obama’s signature health care law, it’s hardly the first time a new, sprawling government program has been beset by early technical glitches, political hostility and gloom-and-doom denouncements. President Franklin D. Roosevelt faced heavy skepticism with his launch of Social Security in 1935-37. Turbulence also rocked subsequent key presidential initiatives, including Lyndon Johnson’s rollout of Medicare and Medicaid in 1965, Richard Nixon’s Supplemental Security Income program in 1974 and George W. Bush’s Medicare prescription drugs program in 2006. Yet these programs today are enormously

popular with recipients. Obama and allies hope history will repeat itself on the health insurance overhaul. “Every day I check to make sure that it’s working better,� Obama said playfully the other day. With more and more Americans successfully signing up for the program, some Republicans have dialed back their harshest criticism. Still, the overall negative political fallout could damage Democratic chances in the 2014 midterm elections and possibly beyond. Any new major federal program is a likely target for early criticism. But the heaviest assaults seem to fall on social benefit programs like Social Security and its health care cousins Medicare and Medicaid. These “entitlement� programs are easy lightning rods because they affect so many Americans, directly or indirectly. After FDR kicked off Social Security in 1937, Washington’s precomputer age bureaucrats faced enormous hurdles enrolling people for the old-age benefits. Many had the same or similar names. Not all employers kept detailed records on employees and how much they were paid, further complicating the process. Alf Landon, the 1936 Republican presidential nominee, called Social Security “a fraud on the workingman.� Former Republican President Herbert Hoover suggested it would imprison elderly Americans in the moral equivalent of “a national zoo.�

Leland man arrested for embezzlement GREENVILLE — Washington County sheriff’s deputies have arrested a Leland man on a charge of embezzling from a federal agency. Sheriff’s Maj. Percy Miles tells the Delta Democrat Times that 27-year-old Richard Horton Jr. was arrested Monday after officials with the U.S. Department of Agriculture facility in Stoneville reported the theft. Miles says it has not yet been determined how much money was taken in the embezzlement and that the theft remains under investigation. Horton was released on $1,500 bond shortly after his arraignment Monday. Â

Salvation Army bell ringers collect rings BILOXI — Salvation Army bell-ringers in Biloxi collected two golden rings. The diamond engagement and wedding rings were wrapped in a twopage letter asking that they go to a Christian couple who cannot afford a diamond and are making a lifetime commitment. “Love can last a lifetime — and it should,� begins the letter stuffed painstakingly into a kettle outside the Biloxi Walmart. A Gulfport jeweler verified the rings as gold and diamonds worth $499, the Salvation Army of Alabama, Lousiana and Mississippi said on its blog.

The Coast Salvation Army said Monday that it is holding a contest for the rings. Entrants can describe hardships they have faced and why they feel they deserve the rings and a free wedding. The group’s Kroc Center lets it “help a couple have a full wedding with a chapel, reception, photographs — the whole nine yards. And that’s exactly what we plan to do,� said Maj. Gary Sturdivant, area commander for south Mississippi. They rings aren’t the first dropped into a local Salvation Army kettle this year. A woman dropped a $1,500 topaz ring on Nov. 18 into a kettle in Birmingham, Ala., and a set of silver wedding rings turned up this year in Alexandria, La., according to the regional blog. The Alabama woman “bought the ring over 10 years ago from a missionary to support the Lord’s work in the Mission field,� said Brandy Crumly, director of devel-

opment for The Salvation Army’s Greater Birmingham Area Command. Â

Merger issues remain as price tag emerges STARKVILLE — A commission charged with drawing up recommendations for merger of the Starkville and Oktibbeha County schools may seek $20 million for construction and operation of a grades 6-7 campus and a pre-kindergarten program to be created as a demonstration project. The Commercial Dispatch reports (http://bit. ly/1hCFSMm) that commission members went through a merger draft report this week. A final report is not expected to be complete until early 2014. State law tasked the group to deliver consolidation recommendations to the Legislature by March 1. The Legislature, which mandated that the districts merge, convenes Jan. 7.

Ex-school superintendent to report to prison JACKSON — Former Greenville Public School District superintendent Harvey Franklin must report to prison by Jan. 6 to begin serving more than six years in a federal bribery case related to a $1.4 million reading program for children. Franklin pleaded guilty in August 2012. He was sentenced to 76 months on Nov. 13 for taking more than $270,000 in bribes in exchange for influencing the school board to use the reading program. He also was ordered to pay $1.2 million in restitution to the Department of Education. Franklin’s lawyer, Julie Ann Epps, filed a notice on Dec. 6 that they are appealing the case to the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans. She declined comment when contacted by The Associated Press. Edna Goble, who owned Teach Them To Read in Conyers, Ga., pleaded guilty on Oct. 7, the same day her trial was to begin. Her reading program is called EDNA, for Early Detection Necessary Action. Goble “paid kickbacks and bribes to Harvey Franklin in the form of paying off a loan on Franklin’s automobile, paying for remodeling and home improvements for Franklin’s personal home, paying the balance of Franklin’s personal credit card account, and paying for college tuition on behalf of Franklin’s children,” according to court records.

Franklin, who became superintendent in Greenville in 2009, resigned in May 2012 after he came under scrutiny in the federal investigation. He pleaded guilty in August 2012.

MDES releases jobless figures for November JACKSON — New figures on Mississippi’s labor force show Clay County with the highest unemployment rate of 16.8 percent in November. Mississippi Department of Employment Security records released Tuesday show Holmes County with a jobless rate of 14.4 percent. Rankin County posted the lowest unemployment rate in November at 4.6 percent followed by DeSoto County at 5 percent. All told, Mississippi had a seasonally adjusted rate of 8.6 percent, a decrease of two-tenths of a percentage point from 8.5 percent in October, according to MDES figures. The rate decreased seven-tenths of a percentage point when compared to November 2012. In November there were 1,900 more jobs in Mississippi than in October and 18,500 more than November 2012, according to the MDES’ seasonally adjusted results from a survey of Mississippi employers.

Prosecutors drop charges against 5 in ’11 shooting NATCHEZ — Prosecutors have dropped charges against five of

seven people arrested in connection with a 2011 fatal shooting outside the Natchez Mall. District Attorney Ronnie Harper tells The Natchez Democrat that the cases against Venisha Noble, Brandon Collins, Clavin Matthews, Antonio Clay and Shakira Clay were dismissed Nov. 22 because of insufficient evidence to obtain a conviction. Police say 25-year-old Walter Washington was shot to death while sitting in a vehicle in the mall parking lot. Harper says the cases against Lee Raymond Smith Jr. and Latravis K. Clay remain active. Each is charged with murder. No trial dates have been set.

Ex-Navy worker changes travel-voucher scheme plea GULFPORT — A former U.S. Navy worker accused of stealing government funds and conspiring to submit false claims to the government has agreed to plead guilty to a lesser charge. The Sun Herald reports that federal court records show Eduardo Magana, 40, of LaMesa, Calif., has notified the court of his intent to accept a plea on a misdemeanor and be prosecuted in the Southern District of California. A two-count indictment returned by a grand jury in June alleged Magana embezzled money through cash advances and purchases on a government credit card and through fraudulent travel vouchers while assigned to work at the Naval Construction Battalion Center in Gulfport.

First-class stamps to cost 49 cents WASHINGTON — Mailing a letter is about to get a little more expensive. Regulators on Tuesday approved a temporary price hike of 3 cents for a first-class stamp, bringing the charge to 49 cents a letter in an effort to help the Postal Service recover from severe mail decreases brought on by the 2008 economic downturn. Many consumers won’t feel the price increase immediately. Forever stamps, good for firstclass postage whatever the future rate, can be purchased at the lower price until the new rate is effective Jan. 26. The higher rate will last no more than two years, allowing the Postal Service to recoup $2.8 billion in losses. By a 2-1 vote, the independent Postal Regulatory Commission rejected a request to make the price hike permanent, though inflation over the next 24

months may make it so. The surcharge “will last just long enough to recover the loss,” Commission Chairman Ruth Y. Goldway said. Bulk mail, periodicals and package service rates will rise 6 percent, a decision that drew immediate consternation from the mail industry. Its groups have opposed any price increase beyond the current 1.7 percent rate of inflation, saying charities using mass mailings and bookstores competing with online retailer Amazon would be among those who suffer. Greeting card companies also have criticized the plans. “This is a counterproductive decision,” said Mary G. Berner, president of the Association of Magazine Media. “It will drive more customers away from using the Postal Service and will have ripple effects through our economy — hurting consumers, forcing layoffs and impacting businesses.” Berner said her organization will consider

What My One Year Old Taught Me About My Heavenly Father By Mike Swims My 19 month old son Conner has entered into a new stage of growth where he really enjoys doing whatever it is that I’m doing. If I’m wearing my favorite ball cap, he wants to wear it, too. If I just took my boots off, he wants to put them on. Whatever I say, he repeats in his own baby language. However, while cleaning up our back yard after a recent wind storm, there was one place we couldn’t allow Conner to go, and that was near the burning branches. Conner didn’t like the fact that his mother and I were keeping him away from it. He kicked, screamed, cried, and even pulled against her, trying to do what he wanted to do, all to no avail. So while Conner thought we were being mean and restrictive parents with arbitrary rules, his mother and I knew what was best for him. And even though he didn’t understand why he couldn’t have his way, the important part was that we understood we were truly protecting him. And this got me to thinking: “How many of us are like my one and a half year old son in that we kick, scream, fight, and pull against God simply because we want to play too close to the fires of life?” Surely if Conner could speak he would’ve told us that he didn’t see any harm in what he wanted to do. And many people use this same excuse to justify the things they partake in. So this begs the question: Was I right by stopping my son from playing in the fire? No rational adult would say that if I truly loved him I should’ve just let him do whatever it is he wanted to do. And yet, there are those who claim to be followers of God who insist they can play in the fires of sin because God loves them too much to let them burn. The truth is that God gave us rules to avoid certain activities to make this life easier—and not harder—on us! But He also gave us His laws in order to keep us from burning in the first place! So had I let Conner play in that fire I would’ve been a negligent parent and the same would be true of God. It’s irresponsible of an earthly parent to allow such behavior, rationalizing it by saying they let their child do so because they love them, and yet some would have us to believe a greater, wiser being such as God would be guilty of this? Today Conner gave me a great reminder about the Heavenly Father, the rules He’s laid out for us, and His purpose behind them. They’re there to keep us from getting burned.

appealing the decision before the U.S. Court of Appeals. For consumers who have cut back on their use of mail for correspondence, the rate increase may have little impact on their pocketbooks.

New home sales slip in November WASHINGTON — Newhome sales dipped in November, but the government released more positive figures for the previous three months, a sign that housing may be regaining strength after a summer lull. Sales slipped 2.1 percent last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 464,000, the Commerce Department said Tuesday. The slight drop occurred after sales had surged to a rate of 474,000 in October. That was the fastest pace since 2008 and was 17.6 percent above the September level — the biggest one-month jump in 21 years. The annual pace of new-home sales remains well below the 700,000 generally consistent with a healthy market. But economists are encouraged by a pickup in sales after a slowdown likely

caused by higher mortgage rates. Mortgage rates had spiked amid investor concerns about how fast the Federal Reserve would remove its support for the economy. The government’s report Tuesday revised up new-home sales for the three months preceding November. August’s total was revised up by 9,000, September’s by 49,000 and October’s by 30,000. “The rebound in sales following the sharp slowdown in July was much stronger than originally reported,” said Michael Gapen, an economist at Barclays. Mark Vitner, senior economist at Well Fargo, said, “The housing recovery remains well in place.” He noted that mortgage rates are still low by historic standards and should support sales next year. Vitner predicted that new-home sales would rise next year to an annual pace of around 530,000. In a separate report, the Mortgage Bankers Association said the number of Americans applying for mortgages fell 6.3 percent last week from the previous

week. Applications have reached a 13-year low, down 63 percent from their May peak.

NSA leaker: ‘Mission’s already accomplished’ WASHINGTON — After six months when he was rarely heard from except through the documents he leaked, fugitive former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden says his “mission’s already accomplished” after leaking NSA secrets that have caused a reassessment of U.S. surveillance policies. Snowden told The Washington Post in an interview published online Monday night that he was satisfied because journalists have been able to tell the story of the government’s collection of bulk Internet and phone records, an activity that has grown dramatically in the decade since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. “For me, in terms of personal satisfaction, the mission’s already accomplished,” he said. “I already won.” “As soon as the journalists were able to work, everything that I had been trying to do was validated,” Snowden

told the Post. “Because, remember, I didn’t want to change society. I wanted to give society a chance to determine if it should change itself.” NSA spokeswoman Vanee Vines offered no comment on the interview Tuesday, nor did the State Department. White House spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden said via email Tuesday: “Mr. Snowden faces felony charges here in the United States and should be returned to the U.S. as soon as possible, where he will be afforded due process and all the protections of our criminal justice system.” President Barack Obama hinted Friday that he would consider some changes to NSA’s bulk collection of Americans’ phone records to address the public’s concern about privacy. His comments came in a week in which a federal judge declared the NSA’s collection program probably was unconstitutional. A presidential advisory panel has suggested 46 changes to NSA operations. Snowden was interviewed in Moscow over two days by Post reporter Barton Gellman, who has received numerous leaks from Snowden. The interview was conducted six months after Snowden’s revelations first appeared in the Post and Britain’s Guardian newspaper.

Survey busts myths of dads to diapers and more BY LINDSEY TANNER AP Medical Writer

CHICAGO — The detached dad, turning up his nose at diapering and too busy to bathe, dress and play with his kids, is mostly a myth, a big government survey suggests. Most American fathers say they are heavily involved in hands-on parenting, the researchers found. The nationally representative survey shows fathers’ involvement has increased slightly since the government first asked in 2002, coinciding with research since then that bolsters the benefits of hands-on fathering. The results are encouraging and important “because others have found the more involved dads are, the better the outcomes for their children,” said researcher Jo Jones of the National Center for Health Statistics, part of the Centers for Disease Control Prevention. She co-authored the report released Friday. More academic success, fewer behavior problems and healthier eating habits are just some of the ways fathers’ involvement has been linked with children’s well-being. “Times have changed,” said Robert Loftus, 34, of Yonkers, N.Y. He quit

“Times have changed. We’re trying to rethink our priorities and family seems to be the No. 1 priority whereas in the past maybe people were more focused on career.”

Some “are anxious about changing a diaper,” he said, but the study offers reassuring evidence “that everybody’s doing this.”

Robert Loftus, 34,

Pediatrician and author of “Dad to Dad: Parenting Like a Pro”

Yonkers, N.Y. a six-figure sales job a year ago to care for his two young children while his wife works full time. “We’re trying to rethink our priorities and family seems to be the No. 1 priority whereas in the past maybe people were more focused on career.” The results build on volumes of research showing changes in the American family since the baby boom years and before, when women were mostly stay-at-home moms and dads were the major breadwinners. As those roles shifted, so did the view that moms are the only nurturers. University of Chicago sociologist Jennifer Bellamy, who also studies fathering, said some old stereotypes persist, “that dads are sort of the co-pilots in their families,” absent or less involved than moms. But she said the survey

confirms that fathers “are quite involved in a variety of different and important ways.” The study involved nearly 4,000 fathers aged 15 to 44 who were interviewed in person between 2006 and 2010. One caveat: They self-reported their involvement, without input from their partners or others. Most men were married or living with a partner. Key findings among fathers living with children younger than 5: ■ 9 in 10 bathed, diapered, helped them use the toilet or get dressed at least several times weekly. ■ Even higher numbers played with them and ate meals with them that often. ■ Almost 2 out of 3 read to them at least several times weekly. Among dads living with kids aged 5-18: ■ More than 9 out of 10

Dr. David Hill

ate meals with them at least several times weekly and talked with them about what happened during the kids’ day that often. ■ Almost 2 out of 3 helped with homework several times weekly. ■ About half took their kids to or from activities that often. Overall, almost 90 percent of dads said they thought they were doing at least a good job of fathering. The researchers noted that during the study years, 45 percent of U.S. men — 28 million — aged 15 to 44 had a biological child. About the same number had a biological, adopted or non-related child living with them or an adopted or biological child living elsewhere. Survey questions were based on whether dads were living with their biological or unrelated kids, or apart.

Most lived with their kids. Not surprisingly, men who didn’t were less involved with parenting activities. Even so, several times weekly, at least 1 in 5 still managed to help bathe, diaper, dress, eat or play with their kids. Fathers of older children were generally less involved than those with kids younger than 5 but that’s at least partly due to the changing nature of parenting as children mature. The survey suggests black fathers may be more involved than whites or Hispanics with some activities, including homework, but Jones downplayed racial differences and said some were not statistically significant. Men with at least some college education were generally more involved with their kids than less educated fathers. The CDC did a simi-

lar survey in 2002 that showed slightly less father involvement. A national parenting survey by University of Maryland researchers found that in 2000, married U.S. fathers spent about two hours weekly interacting with their kids aged 18 and younger, more than double the time spent in 1965. Dr. David Hill, a Wilmington, N.C., pediatrician and author of “Dad to Dad: Parenting Like a Pro,” said the survey echoes what he’s seen among his patients’ fathers. Increasingly, fathers rather than mothers take their kids to the doctor, he said. Some “are anxious about changing a diaper,” he said, but the study offers reassuring evidence “that everybody’s doing this.” Men weren’t asked about employment, or whether they were stayat-home dads, who still are rare though their ranks have increased. Census numbers show almost 190,000 nationwide last year versus 93,000 in 2000. Loftus, the New York stay-at-home dad, said he feels lucky to be able to be such a hands-on father. “I’m doing the most important job in the world,” he said.

Cab driver finds $300,000 in back seat Associated Press

LAS VEGAS — Las Vegas cab driver Gerardo Gamboa thought someone left a bag of chocolates in the back seat of his vehicle, but the stash turned out to be $300,000 in cold hard cash. Now, Gamboa is winning honors for honesty after turning in the money he found Monday. The money was returned to an unidentified poker player. Yellow Checker Star Transportation named Gamboa its driver of the year and rewarded him with $1,000 and a dinner for two at a restaurant. Gamboa told the Las Vegas Review-Journal he had another passenger by the time he began wondering what kind of chocolates were in the brown paper bag. He peeked inside at a traffic light. “I told my passenger,

‘You are my witness on this,’” the 13-year taxi driver told the Las Vegas Sun, “and then I immediately called my dispatcher.” Gamboa took the six bundles of $100 bills to the company’s main office, where Las Vegas police

and casino officials linked it to the poker player. Gamboa said the man gave him a $5 tip after a trip from the Cosmopolitan resort to the Palms Place tower, and Gamboa then drove to the Bellagio resort.

Coming Up In The Daily Corinthian Watch for Staff Writer Jebb Johnston’s three-part Year in Review series coming Friday, Saturday and Sunday and then the Top Ten Stories of the Year will be presented on Wednesday, Jan. 1.

Mother’s promises to kick drug habit are empty words DEAR ABBY: I am a 15-yearold girl and a caring person. I’m worried about my mother. She has been an addict for nine years. She always says she wants help, but she never follows through with getting the help she needs. I have asked her many times to go and get help, and have told her how bad her using makes me feel. What do you think I can do to encourage her to follow through with treatment? I miss my mother. Any advice would be appreciated. — IN NEED OF HELP IN OLYMPIA, WASH. DEAR IN NEED OF HELP: You are not only a caring young woman, you are also mature for your age and intelligent. If your mother has been an addict since you were 6, your entire childhood has been spent taking care of her and raising yourself. I am truly sorry for that. Because nothing you say gets through to her, consider moving in with another relative if that’s possible. You should also join a Narateen support group. It’s a 12-step program for teenage friends and family members of addicts. There is one in your city called “Hope for Today.” To find the location, check the Nar-Anon website, DEAR ABBY: I am a grandmother, a former teacher and I have my master’s in child psychology. I was also a school board member. I love children.

Please pass this along to parents and anyone else who cares for children: Quit force-feeding Abigail them! Again again Van Buren and I see parents beg Dear Abby and coerce their kids to eat. There are too many obese people in the world. Kids will eat when they are hungry. Just don’t give them any junk in between. I know a dad who told me he forced his son to finish his food until the son went and threw up. He said he will never do that again. Remember, children have small stomachs. They don’t need to eat much to feel full. Restaurants serve too much. Let kids eat when they need to. Just give them healthy choices. — DIANE IN MILWAUKEE DEAR DIANE: Unfortunately, babies don’t come with written instructions. Many parents “encourage” their children to eat because they’re afraid if they don’t they’re not doing their job. It’s a reflection of their anxiety. Too often, mealtime turns into a power struggle, which is a big mistake. What you have written is common sense. A pediatrician or health clinic can advise parents what and how much their child should eat. And I agree, restau-

rant portions are usually larger than customers should consume in one meal, which is why those who are watching their calories are advised to cut the portions in half before eating. DEAR ABBY: I am a grown woman with a wonderful husband, two jobs and five beautiful children. I am a good person. My parents raised me to be respectful and accepting of all kinds of people. My arms are partially tattooed with beautiful flowers. Family members openly express their dislike of it. They have a right to their thoughts and to say what they please. What can I say back that tells them how rude they are and how they hurt me? — INKED AND IRKED IN POCATELLO, IDAHO DEAR INKED AND IRKED: You should say, “When you gave your opinion about my arms, I heard you the first time. For you to keep repeating it is insulting and hurtful, so please cut it out. I think my tattoos are beautiful and THAT’S what’s important.” And if your family members persist in making cruel comments, you have my permission to end the conversation. (Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.)

Horoscopes ARIES (March 21-April 19). When desire is fed, the inner animal is satisfied — but not the greedy human mind, which, once sated, only develops bigger appetites. You’ll have to convince the others to relax and be reasonable. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You really can boost your immune system by thinking positive thoughts. But first you have to neutralize the negativity being offered up by your critical inner voice. It’s as easy as saying “shhh...” GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You don’t know enough to tackle the project you’re considering, but that’s not a good enough reason to pass on it. You’ll learn. You always do. In fact, you can’t help yourself. You prefer to be constantly learning. CANCER (June 22-July 22). If you expend extraordinary energy doing a seemingly ordinary thing, you’ll elevate this aspect of daily life to the realm of “art

form.” This is the key to good living these days. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Instinct has led you to your current pursuit. You’ll wake up ready to focus on a fresh initiative, though you may not know until after you get to work the significance of what you’re doing. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You have helpers and advisers, but ultimately you’re the one who will bring a grand plan to fruition. You are tuned in to everyone and everything that can lead to your success. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You may not be able to remove the forces that oppose you, but once you accept that you are better for having to contend with them, you will start to see the advantages of your position. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your encouragement is potent, and those you cheer for will be moved to act confidently and accomplish what they didn’t think

they could. Use some of that supportiveness on yourself. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Look deeper into the things that intrigue and fascinate you. There’s a reason you are so mysteriously drawn by these pursuits, and they will connect you to good fortune. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’re a cosmic favorite these days, so be sure to want things for yourself and for others. Why not be greedy for love, goodness and health? AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Despite an absence of obvious constraint, impediment or interference, you still may feel that you’re not free. Consider exactly why you don’t feel at liberty to say and do as you wish. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Get focused, and you’ll be astounded at what you can accomplish. You’ll tackle the primary things you wanted to get finished before the end of the year.

SEC roundup

State starts hot but falls at UNLV Associated Press

LAS VEGAS — The UNLV Rebels are starting to find their groove. Playing two games on the other side of the Las Vegas Strip from its campus, UNLV played perhaps its two best games of the season. Kevin Olekaibe scored 17 points, including four 3-pointers, to lead UNLV over Mississippi State 82-66 in the Las Vegas Classic championship game on Monday night. Also for UNLV (8-4), Classic MVP Deville Smith added 15 points, while Roscoe Smith had 12 points and 12 rebounds. “My main focus was to get the stops on the defensive end and I shake my team up,” Smith said. “Those are my jobs.” Khem Birch had 11 points and eight rebounds for the Rebels, who went 4-0 in the Classic. “(Mississippi State) mixed their defenses extremely well and yet we were able to find open guys and make 11 three-point shots,” UNLV coach Dave Rice said. “We shot the ball extremely well the last four, five games, which was a huge key for us. I always thought we were a good shooting team. We’re starting to make shots. That’s a huge deal for us.” Craig Sword led Mississippi State (9-3) with 18 points. Colin Borchert added 12 points and six rebounds for the Bulldogs, who finished 3-1 in the Classic. The Rebels converted 11 threepointers, while the Bulldogs made only 1 of 11 attempts from beyond the arc. UNLV was outscored in the paint, 52-24, but went 19 of 24 from the free-throw line, while Mississippi State made good on 9 of 12. “The reason why (UNLV) is coming together is that they has so many new pieces,” Mississippi State coach Rick Ray said. “Those guys are figuring out how to play with each other. I was impressed on how fast they played. When you give up a defensive rebound or you make a mistake, they get in transition and they have so many guards. They can rebound, pass, and shoot.” In the first half, the Rebels converted 9 of 16 from 3-point range as Olekaibe and Smith both hit three 3-pointers. “We had guys come off the bench with solid contributions,” Rice said. “That’s a quality win. Mississippi State is a big physical team. They have a bunch of guys that can drive.” The Bulldogs jumped to 10-5 lead in the first five minutes, but the Rebels went on an 18-6 run and never trailed again. UNLV took the lead for good on a Smith 3-pointer with 12:21 until halftime. There were only seven free throws by both teams in the half. “(Sword) did not have a great first half,” Ray said. “We look to Craig to manufacture offense. We were kind of a lot of loss. Any time you get to a championship in a tournament, it’s a good tournament. You can’t win the big tournaments, unless you win the little tournaments.” The Rebels never let their lead go below 13 points in the second half and it grew to as many as 24. This was the team’s first meeting since Dec. 30, 1980, when the Rebels won in Las Vegas. UNLV next hosts Cal State-Fullerton back across The Strip in the Thomas & Mack Center on Saturday. Mississippi State is off until Jan. 2 when it hosts Maryland-Eastern Shore.

Carolina takes 3rd at Diamond Head Associated Press

HONOLULU — Midway through his freshman season, Duane Notice is finally breaking out. Notice scored a season-high 15 points as South Carolina defeated Akron 69-59 in the third-place game of the Diamond Head Classic on Wednesday. “Coach just challenged me and the first thing he did, the first practice when we came out to Hawaii, was he challenged me in front of everybody and that burnt a fire under me,” Notice said. “It got me into my competitive mode to show him that I’m not a phony so I think that’s what lifted my Please see GAMECOCKS | 11

Williams is Female Athlete of Year BY HOWARD FENDRICH Associated Press

Serena Williams likes to make one thing clear: She is never satisfied, no matter how many matches and tournaments she wins. Driven as ever, Williams won plenty this year. She went 78-4 with 11 titles, including at the French Open and U.S. Open, raising her Grand Slam championship total to 17. She compiled a 34-match winning streak. She earned more than $12 million in prize money, a record for women’s tennis. In February, she became the oldest No. 1 in WTA rankings history and never left that perch. Thanks to all of that, Williams was honored Wednesday as The Associated Press’ 2013 Female Athlete of the Year. It’s the third AP award for Williams, following 2002 and 2009. Only two women have been chosen more often as AP Athlete of the Year since the annual awards were first handed out in 1931. “Whenever I lose, I get more determined, and it gives me something more to work toward,” Williams told

the AP in an interview shortly before the start of the U.S. Open. “I don’t get complacent, and I realize I need to work harder and I need to do better and I want to do better — or I wouldn’t keep playing this game.” The vote by news organizations was about as lopsided as many of Williams’ matches this season. She received 55 of 96 votes, while Brittney Griner, a two-time AP Player of the Year in college basketball and the No. 1 pick in April’s WNBA draft, finished second with 14. Swimmer Missy Franklin was next with 10. The Male Athlete of the Year recipient will be announced today. Williams, who grew up in Compton, Calif., and turned 32 in September, produced the finest women’s tennis season in years. According to the WTA: ■ her .951 winning percentage was the best since Steffi Graf’s .977 in 1989; ■ her 11 titles were the most since Martina Hingis’ 12 in 1997; ■ her winning streak was the longest since her sister,

Venus, had a 35-match run in 2000. “She just continues to be an inspiration to American tennis,” said Gordon Smith, the executive director of the U.S. Tennis Association, which runs the U.S. Open. “Her year this year? Unforgettable.” By adding a fifth career U.S. Open championship, and a second French Open title, Williams also moved within one Grand Slam trophy of the 18 apiece won by Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert. The record is 24 by Margaret Court. Pretty heady company. Evert is one of the only two women with more AP awards than Williams. Evert won four from 1974-80, while Babe Didrikson collected a record six — one for track in 1932, and five for golf from 1945-54. “Serena already has provided significant contributions to taking our sport to the next level. ... She is chasing records and no doubt will break many records before she’s finished,” WTA Chairman Stacey Allaster said. “That obviously just brings a lot more attention to our

sport.” Two particular moments in 2013 stuck out to Allaster. One came at Qatar in February, when Williams cried after assuring herself of returning to No. 1 for the first time since 2010, the year the American needed two operations on her right foot and got blood clots in her lungs. “You could see the joy, the tears of joy. It meant so much to her, from everything she had been through, to be able to be back at the top of the sport, a sport that she does truly love,” Allaster said. The second moment came during Wimbledon, when Williams joined other women who have been ranked No. 1 at a celebration of the WTA’s 40th anniversary. “It was an opportunity to see her in a leadership position. ... She did a remarkable job at speaking on behalf of all those great athletes and speaking to future players,” Allaster said. “There’s a little girl, perhaps out there in Compton, who is dreaming of playing on the WTA, and Serena said, ‘We’re waiting for you, and we can’t wait to meet you.’”

Florida hires Duke’s Roper as new OC BY MARK LONG Associated Press

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Kurt Roper’s lengthy interview at Florida must have been impressive. Roper has agreed to leave Duke to become the offensive coordinator for the Gators, according to a person familiar with the situation. The person spoke to The Associated Press on Tuesday night on condition of anonymity because the hiring has not been announced. Roper spent several hours with Florida coach Will Muschamp in Gainesville on Monday. He is expected to remain with the Blue Devils through the Chick-fil-A Bowl on Dec. 31. ESPN was the first to report the decision. A Florida spokesman declined comment when reached by The Associated Press. Roper replaces Brent Pease, who was fired the

day after Florida (4-8) completed its first losing season since 1979. Florida’s offense ranked 112th nationally — the third straight year it placed 100th or worse. Muschamp also fired offensive line coach Tim Davis. Muschamp’s next offensive coordinator had been considered the most important hire in his tenure, a choice that surely will impact whether the head coach sticks around beyond 2014. If Florida doesn’t show significant improvement in Muschamp’s fourth year — he is 22-16 through three seasons — athletic director Jeremy Foley certainly will clean house. Muschamp had been expected to interview several potential candidates, a couple even after the bowl season. But he wasted little time offering Roper the job, although many believe Southern California’s Clay Helton was Florida’s top choice.

Helton decided last week to stay at USC under new coach Steve Sarkisian. Roper, meanwhile, followed coach David Cutcliffe to Duke in 2008 from Tennessee and helped rebuild the Blue Devils from one of the nation’s worst power-conference programs to the champions of the Atlantic Coast Conference’s Coastal Division. Roper was a finalist this year for the Broyles Award, given to the nation’s top assistant coach. The offensive coordinator helped the 22ndranked Blue Devils (10-3) set a school record for wins and earn a spot in the Chick-fil-A Bowl. Before joining Duke, Roper coached at three Southeastern Conference schools — Tennessee (2006-07), Kentucky (2005) and Mississippi with Cutcliffe (1999-2004). So he has extensive SEC experience, having coached quarterbacks at Kentucky and Ole Miss, and running backs at

Tennessee before arriving in Durham, N.C. In addition to his role as offensive coordinator, he has served as assistant head coach and quarterbacks coach at Duke. Florida is looking to change its offense from a pro-style, run-oriented scheme to an up-tempo system that features more spread formations. The Gators managed just 279 yards in a 26-20 loss to lower-division Georgia Southern on Nov. 23 and then 193 in a season-ending 37-7 loss to Florida State. Florida lost its final seven games and missed a bowl game for the first time since 1990. The Gators threw just four touchdown passes during that losing streak. Over the last two seasons, Duke averaged more than 30 points per game. Duke averaged 408.1 yards and 31.6 points this season, ranking sixth in the ACC in both categories.

Belichick questions offseason workout limits BY JOHN WAWROW Associated Press

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Patriots coach Bill Belichick is blaming recently instituted NFL rules shortening offseason practice time for what he claims to be an increasing number of player injuries. “I’m in favor of total preparation for the players for the season,” Belichick said during a conference call with Buffalo reporters this week in leading up to New England’s home game against the Bills on Sunday. “And I think that’s been changed significantly and, I would say, not necessarily for the better when you look at the injury numbers.” Belichick said players are more vulnerable to being hurt because they’re less prepared,

and described the limits placed on offseason workouts — including training camp — as being counterproductive. “Personally, I think that’s taking the wrong approach,” he said. “You have a gap between preparation and competition level. And I think that’s where you see a lot of injuries occurring. We get a lot of breakdowns. We get a lot of situations that players just aren’t as prepared as they were in previous years, in my experience anyway.” Belichick was specifically challenging several new rules negotiated into the NFL labor deal that ended an offseasonlong lockout in 2011. Teams were prevented from holding two-a-day practices during training camp. Limits

were also placed on how many times players practiced in pads throughout the year. In the spring, offseason team activity time was reduced from 14 to nine weeks (10 if the team changed head coaches). What’s in question is whether injuries are, in fact, on the rise in the NFL, as Belichick suggested. Though he didn’t cite specific numbers, Belichick said he was citing “a matter of record not opinion,” in saying injuries league-wide have been on the rise over the past three years. League spokesman Michael Signora disputed Belichick’s assertions. “We carefully monitor player injuries,” Signora said. “There is no evidence that the

new work rules have had an adverse effect on the injury rate or that injuries have in fact increased.” The NFL declined to released its numbers. But according to STATS, the number of NFL players finishing a season on injured reserve has risen significantly over the past 14 seasons. From 2000-06, there was an average of 239 players on IR. That average has jumped to about 314 over the past seven years. The low over that span was 192 in 2001, with the high being 353 in 2010, but that was before the new offseason rules came into effect. As of Monday, there were 288 players on IR, the lowest total since 287 in 2008.

Orton poised to make start Sunday for Cowboys Associated Press

IRVING, Texas — Kyle Orton and Jon Kitna sat at opposite ends of a couch in the Dallas Cowboys’ locker room Wednesday, turned toward each other and started chatting. They probably were talking about Dallas’ offense. Orton will make his first start at quarterback in his two seasons with the Cowboys on Sunday night, unless Tony Romo can recover from a herniated disc. Dallas will be playing a winner-take-all game at home against the Philadelphia Eagles for the NFC East title and a playoff

berth. Romo was nowhere to be seen in any of the public areas at Valley Ranch. He did not practice, and didn’t attend a morning offensive meeting, according to coach Jason Garrett. “I’m just excited,” Orton said. “I think the guys have got a lot of confidence in me. I’ve got a lot of confidence in myself. I can fall back on my experience. I’ve played a lot of games in this league. I don’t feel I have to do too much with the ball, just get it to 29 (DeMarco Murray), 82 (Jason Witten) and 88 (Dez Bryant).”

Garrett still hasn’t ruled out Romo. “I saw him briefly today. He’s fighting through it. He’s doing everything he can to get back. He’s going through the rehab process. “We’ll evaluate him day to day, the same as most players who are injured.” Asked whether he thought Romo would play Sunday, Garrett said, “We’ll have to see. It seems like he is feeling a little bit better.” Orton’s most recent start was in Week 17 of 2011 for Kansas City in a 7-3 victory over the Denver Broncos. He had started the season with

Denver, but was released after losing the starting job to Tim Tebow, who led the Broncos to the playoffs. The 31-year-old Orton has a 35-34 record in 69 starts in nine NFL seasons. For Dallas, Orton has appeared in three games, completing 12 of 15 passes for 129 yards. Garrett said even that limited experience was valuable. “Any time, at any position, it’s good to play,” Garrett said Romo has been an active participant in preparing game plans, and Garrett said Orton’s input would be welcomed.

Foles still hears about bad game against Dallas BY ROB MAADDI Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — Nick Foles has a new nickname that’s appropriate this time of year: Saint Nick. Foles hardly resembles jolly, old Santa Claus, but he’s given fans of the Philadelphia Eagles plenty of gifts this year. They want one more Sunday. A victory over the Dallas Cowboys (8-7) would clinch the NFC East title for the Eagles (9-6) and secure the No. 3 seed in the conference. It’s already been a remarkable turnaround under rookie coach Chip Kelly after a 4-12 finish last year. But this story is far from complete. For all of his accomplishments, Foles is constantly reminded about the first time the Eagles played the Cowboys. Both teams were 3-3 when Dallas came to Philadelphia, shut down Kelly’s high-flying offense and knocked Foles out of the game with a concussion at the end of the third quarter. Foles was 11 of 29 for 80 yards in the 17-3 loss, a dismal performance in only his second start after replacing an injured Michael Vick. “I know everybody is going to dwell on last time, but this game isn’t the last game,” Foles said. Foles returned from the concussion two weeks later and threw seven touchdown passes to tie an NFL record in a victory at Oakland. He leads the league with a passer rating of 118.8, which is third-highest in the history of the NFL. He’s thrown 25 TD passes to only two interceptions. He’s led the Eagles to a 7-2 record in nine starts and has them on the verge of going worst to first in the division. Yet, he’s still asked about that first game against Dallas on Oct. 20. See, beating the Cowboys is an obsession in Philadelphia. It’s almost equivalent to a playoff game every time they face the boys with the stars on their helmet. “If I look into every little thing that I did and try to break it down, I’ll drive myself crazy as well,” Foles said. “We’ve been asked that question several times and everyone wants an answer, but I think the answer is that we had a bad day. We did not play well, but from that game we’ve grown together as a team.” The offense has been nearly unstoppable with Foles under center since. The offense has set team records with eight games of 30-plus points and six games of at least 450 total yards. So, maybe that loss to Dallas didn’t hurt them too much after all. “We use that game as not necessarily fuel, but it was characterbuilding,” Foles said. “Tough games like that, tough things in life, you face adversity and it hurts. You don’t feel good. You feel it in your heart; it’s not fun. But you learn how to get better. You overcome obstacles and you grow together as a team, and that’s the beauty of it. We kept rallying and we kept sticking together.”

But Notice scored on the next play and then his steal and layup put the Gamecocks ahead 63-56 with 3:19 left.

Can Auburn’s magical ride continue? The UPS Team Performance Index (UPS TPI) measures overall efficiency and teamwork based on six key components: offense, defense, miscues, special teams, winning percentage and quality of opponent. For more information and the full UPS TPI rankings, visit BUFFALO WILD WINGS BOWL: MICHIGAN (UPS TPI: 109) VS. KANSAS STATE (UPS TPI: 108)

It was a strange season for Michigan. The Wolverines averaged over 6.0 yards per play in six of 12 games and under 3.0 yards in three games. That’s a huge swing. Kansas State rallied from a 2–4 start to finish 7–5.Michigan 28-24 ARMED FORCES BOWL: NAVY (UPS TPI: 106) VS. MIDDLE TENNESSEE (UPS TPI: 101)

Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds, one of five quarterbacks nationally with 1,000 yards rushing, leads college football with 29 rushing touchdowns. Middle Tennessee has forced 31 turnovers, which is tied for fifth-most in the nation.Navy 37–33 MUSIC CITY BOWL: OLE MISS (UPS TPI: 109) VS. GEORGIA TECH (UPS TPI: 104)

Only two teams in the nation —Army and Navy —have completed fewer passes than Georgia Tech (87) in 2013. Good thing for Ole Miss that it excels against the run; the Rebels give up 4.0 yards per carry, third-fewest in the SEC.Ole Miss 34-24 ALAMO BOWL: OREGON (UPS TPI: 122) VS. TEXAS (UPS TPI: 111)

Texas’ trip to the Alamo will be Mack Brown’s final game as the Longhorns’ coach. His task is to find a way to slow down an Oregon offense that averages 7.6 yards per play and 573.0 yards per game.Oregon 31-20 HOLIDAY BOWL: ARIZONA STATE (UPS TPI: 121) VS. TEXAS TECH (UPS TPI: 97)

Texas Tech lost its last five games, the final four by 19 points or more — and gets rewarded with a trip to San Diego. Arizona State went 10–1 in games not involving Stanford. The Sun Devils are the far superior team.Arizona State 41-17 ADVOCARE V100 BOWL: ARIZONA (UPS TPI: 110) VS. BOSTON COLLEGE (UPS TPI: 109)

Paul Levy


Quarterback Hutson Mason has proven to be a more-than-capable replacement for the injured Aaron Murray. In one full game and parts of two others, Mason has completed 64.8 percent of his passes and averaged 9.1 yards per attempt. If Mason plays well, the Georgia offense — which also features an All-America-caliber tailback in Todd Gurley — will be tough to stop.Georgia 41-30 HEART OF DALLAS BOWL: UNLV (UPS TPI: 94) VS. NORTH TEXAS (UPS TPI: 110)

This game in Shreveport features the two firstteam APAll-America running backs — Boston College’s Andre Williams and Arizona’s Ka’Deem Carey. Williams was the more efficient runner, averaging 6.4 yards per carry — 1.1 more than Carey. Boston College 24-20

UNLV is playing in its first bowl game since 2000 and its first not on its home field in Las Vegas since 1984. North Texas won eight games thanks to its ability to force turnovers — 32 in 12 games, which ranks fourth in the nation.North Texas 34-31



Virginia Tech’s struggles on offense continued in 2013, but the Hokies managed to win eight games by playing solid defensively (4.3 yards allowed per play) and winning the turnover margin (plus-0.67 per game). UCLA’s playmakers on offense — notably quarterback Brett Hundley — will test the Tech defense. UCLA 27-17 LIBERTY BOWL: MISSISSIPPI STATE (UPS TPI: 106) VS. RICE (UPS TPI: 101)

Mississippi State might be the best 6–6 team in the nation. Despite going 3–5 in the SEC, the Bulldogs outgained their league foes by an average of 2.6 yards per game — against a schedule that featured Auburn, LSU, South Carolina, Texas A&M, Alabama and Ole Miss. Rice will be at a distinct talent disadvantage. Mississippi State 37-17 CHICK-FIL-A BOWL: DUKE (UPS TPI: 113) VS. TEXAS A&M (UPS TPI: 109)

Duke has won 10 games for the first time in school history — but you’d never know it by looking at the stats. On a yards-per-play basis, the Blue Devils rank eighth in the ACC in both offense and defense, and they are just barely on the positive side in turnover margin(plus-0.23 per game). Texas A&M lost four games, but this is still one of the best offensive teams in the nation. Texas A&M 47-30

The BCS National Championship Game will feature two of the most exciting quarterbacks in the nation. Auburn’s Nick Marshall, a first-year junior college transfer, has rushed for 1,023 yards while operating Gus Malzahn’s attack. Florida State’s Jameis Winston, the 2013 Heisman Trophy winner, has thrown for 3,820 yards and 38 touchdowns.

Wisconsin has a new coach — Gary Andersen — but the Badgers’ identity has not changed. They rank second in the nation with a 6.6 yards-percarry average and are the only team in the country with two 1,300-yard rushers (Melvin Gordon and James White). South Carolina is outstanding on the defensive line, but its linebackers are young. The front seven must slow down Wisconsin’s rushing attack.South Carolina 24-20 OUTBACK BOWL: LSU (UPS TPI: 116) VS. IOWA (UPS TPI: 115)

True freshman Anthony Jennings will get his first start at quarterback for LSU, filling in for the injured Zach Mettenberger (ACL). He will be throwing to one of the most talented receiving duos in the nation — Jarvis Landy (1,172 yards) and Odell Beckham Jr. (1,117 yards). Iowa ranks second in the Big Ten in passing defense, both in yards allowed per game (182.4) and yards allowed per attempt (5.8).LSU 27-20 COTTON BOWL: OKLAHOMA STATE (UPS TPI: 125) VS. MISSOURI (UPS TPI: 123)

These two former Big 12 rivals entered the final weekend of the season in position to play in a BCS bowl. But it was not meant to be for either school: Oklahoma State lost at home to Oklahoma, and Missouri lost to Auburn in the SECChampionship

Game. Missouri will be eager to atone for its defensive debacle against Auburn, but not many teams have had success against the Oklahoma State offense. The Cowboys scored 38 points or more seven times in 2013 and rank third in the Big 12 with 5.9 yards per offensive play.Missouri 38-35 BBVA COMPASS BOWL: VANDERBILT (UPS TPI: 103) VS. HOUSTON (UPS TPI: 114)

Vanderbilt continues to excel on defense in the James Franklin era. The Commodores rank second in the SEC — behind only Alabama — allowing 5.1 yards per play. Houston, at plus-2.08 per game, leads the nation in turnover margin, having forced 40 and committed only 15. Vanderbilt 31-27


Alabama’s last trip to a BCSbowl that was not the National Championship Game ended with a 31–17 loss to Utah in the 2009 Sugar Bowl. Don’t count on another no-show from the Tide on this visit to New Orleans. At first glance, Oklahoma appears to be stout on defense; the Sooners lead the Big 12 in total defense (336.3 ypg) but only rank fifth in yards allowed per play (5.2) — a much better indicator. Alabama 35-17 ORANGE BOWL: CLEMSON (UPS TPI: 119) VS. OHIO STATE (UPS TPI: 120)

Arkansas State is playing in the Bowl for the third straight season — and for the third straight season the Red Wolves have lost their head coach. Bryan Harsin is now the boss at Boise State, leaving defensive coordinator John Thompson to run the show on an interim basis through the bowl season. Ball State’s Pete Lembo has only had one losing conference record in 13 years as a head coach. Ball State 33-20

Ohio State has lost only one game in the twoyear Urban Meyer era — and it was very costly. Instead of playing Florida State in the BCS National Championship Game — the Buckeyes’ destination had they won the Big Ten title — Ohio State will be battling Clemson in the Orange Bowl. The Buckeyes, who lead the nation with 7.0 yards per carry, will bring college football’s most efficient running attack to South Florida. Clemson is one of 13 teams nationally averaging over 40 points per game and one of 13 teams averaging over 500 yards per game. Ohio State 27-20




Michigan State is making its first appearance in the Rose Bowl since 1988 thanks in large part to a defense that ranked among the best in the nation in almost every key statistic. The Spartans are No. 1 in yards allowed per play (3.9), yards allowed per rush(2.7) and second in yards allowed per passing attempt(5.1). Stanford, a run-first team that lacks explosiveness on offense, will have a hard time scoring points in Pasadena. Michigan State 21-13 FIESTA BOWL: BAYLOR (UPS TPI: 118) VS. UCF (UPS TPI: 124)

The winner of the inaugural American Athletic Conference title, UCF will be playing on the biggest stage in program history. Now, let’s see if the Knights can slow down one of the most potent offenses in college football history. The Bears lead the nation in both scoring offense (53.3 ppg) and total offense (623.8 ypg) while ranking third in yards per play (7.6).Baylor 37-23

It’s quite the conundrum: The nation’s best team or the team of destiny? The mighty Florida State Seminoles or the scrappy Auburn Tigers? It’s a tough call, but we’ll take the Noles, who marched through their 2013 slate with surprising ease. Granted, Florida State’s schedule wasn’t overly taxing, but there aren’t many teams — in any league — capable of winning 13 straight games by 14 points or more. No team is perfect, but it’s difficult finding a weakness on Florida State. The Seminoles lead the nation with 7.81 yards per play on offense and rank second in yards per play on defense at 3.95. Auburn, on the other hand, has some deficiencies. The offense is among the best in the nation, but the Tigers’ defense is quite average, ranking 10th in the SEC and 95th nationally by allowing 6.0 yards per play. And for that reason, Florida State is the pick. Both teams are great. Florida State is complete. Florida State 35–31

Lynch could become first 2,000-2,000 man BY BERNIE WILSON Associated Press

SAN DIEGO — Jordan Lynch will make a run at history tonight when he suits up for the final time for No. 24 Northern Illinois in the Poinsettia Bowl against Utah State. Lynch already owns the major college record for yards rushing for a quarterback with 1,881. With 119 yards, he can become the first player to rush for 2,000 yards and throw for 2,000. “I’m just really proud of

him and wish I had him for about 10 more years but we don’t,” NIU coach Rod Carey said. “This is the last game we get him. That’s the biggest thing with him.” Lynch has passed for 2,676 yards and 23 touchdowns. He’s rushed for 22 scores and even caught a touchdown pass in leading the Huskies to a 12-1 record. “Listen, we ask him to do a lot, and it’s not because that’s our system. It’s because he can,” Car-

ey said. “Those are the things that amaze you. He makes the complicated things and the hard things skillwise look easy. That’s what amazes you every day. You tell him one time one play and then it’s done. It’s locked in a vault. That’s what is amazing to me.” That’s why Lynch was named to The Associated Press All-America team as an all-purpose player. Utah State coach Matt Wells knows Lynch has quite the supporting cast

in fellow 1,000-yard rusher Cameron Stingily and wide receivers Tommylee Lewis and Da’Ron Brown. “Jordan Lynch is fun to watch — it’s not fun to watch because you understand you’re going to have to defend him, but from a quarterback perspective, I’ve got a lot of respect for him,” said Wells, who played quarterback at Utah State in the mid1990s. “The guy is an 1,800yard running back, and by the way he’s over 60-per-

cent completion and 3-to1 touchdown-interception ratio. It’s amazing, and that’s back-to-back years. As you study him and the things that he’s done since he’s become a starter, he’s a flat-out winner,” Wells said. “I said to Rod last Wednesday when we were talking, you know, it’s almost like it’s a oncein-a-lifetime young man to coach because I know he’s the face of that program and everything that he’s meant to that staff

and that program and that city, that university.” Lynch accounts for 65 percent of the NIU offense with 1,881 yards rushing, 2,676 passing and 43 touchdowns. He’s 24-3 as the starter in two seasons. His eight 100yard rushing games include two of more than 300 yards Stingily has 1,081 yards rushing, giving NIU its first 1,000-yard rushing tandem. Three wide receivers have at least 30 catches each.
