Prime Time Players ZAC STACY, VANDERBILT Stacy became Vanderbilt’s all-time single-season rushing leader by running for 184 yards and three touchdowns in the Commodores’ dominating 41–7 win at Wake Forest. The junior from Alabama, who now has 1,136 yards, is only the fourth Vanderbilt running back to top the 1,000yard mark and the first to do since 1995. He will have an opportunity to add to his total as Vanderbilt heads to a bowl game for just the fifth time in school history. DENARD ROBINSON, MICHIGAN Michigan snapped a seven-game losing streak to rival Ohio State thanks in large part to the exploits of Robinson, who accounted for five touchdowns in the Wolverines’ 40–34 victory in Ann Arbor. The man they call Shoelace completed 14-of-17 passes for 167 yards and three touchdowns and added 170 yards rushing and two more scores to give Michigan its 10th win of the season and likely a spot in a BCS bowl. MATT BARKLEY, USC In what might be his final game at the L.A. Coliseum, Barkley completed 35-of-42 passes for 423 yards and six touchdowns as the Trojans rolled past rival UCLA, 50–0, with ease. Barkley, a junior who will likely be a high pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, set a new Pac-12 record with his 39th touchdown pass on the season. USC finished the season with a 7–2 record in league play, two games ahead of UCLA, but is ineligible to play in the league title game or a bowl game due to NCAA sanctions. Barkley finished the season with 39 TDs and only seven INTs. TRENT RICHARDSON, ALABAMA Richardson made his case for the Heisman Trophy by rushing for a career-high 203 yards in Alabama’s 42–14 win over Auburn. He failed to run for a touchdown, but he had carries of 35 yards and 57 yards that set up scores in the second half, and he caught a 5-yard TD pass in the second quarter. Richardson leads the SEC with 1,503 yards rushing and ranks fifth in the nation with 20 rushing touchdowns. TERRANCE GANAWAY, BAYLOR Baylor is known for its passing attack, but the Bears leaned a bit more on their running game on Saturday with star quarterback Robert Griffin III sidelined for the second half with a reported concussion. Ganaway, a 242-pound tailback who began his career at Houston, rushed 42 times for 246 yards and two touchdowns in Baylor’s 66–42 win over Texas Tech at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington. The Bears, who close the 2011 regular season vs. Texas next week, have won eight games for the first time since 1991. CONNOR SHAW, SOUTH CAROLINA Shaw played his best game since taking over for Stephen Garcia in midseason as the Gamecocks’ starting quarterback. The sophomore threw for 210 yards and rushed for 107 to lead South Carolina to a surprisingly easy 34–13 win over Clemson. The Gamecocks have won three straight in this underrated rivalry, something that hasn’t happened since 1968-70. “Historically, Clemson has owned this series,” Gamecocks coach Steve Spurrier said. “They don't own us now.” MONTEE BALL, WISCONSIN Quarterback Russell Wilson stole the headlines early in the season, but Ball is emerging as the Badgers’ top Heisman Trophy contender. The junior tailback rushed for 156 yards and four touchdowns to lead Wisconsin to a 45–7 win over Penn State. Ball now has 34 touchdowns this season, the second-most in a single season in NCAA history. Barry Sanders, who scored 39 in 11 games for Oklahoma State in 1988, holds the record. Ball, who has played 12 games already, has two more games — the Big Ten title game and a bowl game — to break the record.

Upset of the Week Jacory Harris’ up-and-down career as the quarterback at Miami ended on a negative note. The four-year starter threw four interceptions in the Hurricanes’ 24–17 loss at home to a Boston ColBOSTON COLLEGE 24 lege team that MIAMI (FLA.) 17 had scored 19 points or fewer in all but one of its previous 10 games against FBS competition. Miami finished the season with a 6–6 overall record but will not play in a bowl game due to an ongoing NCAA investigation. The Canes lost three of their final five games, including two at home — by seven points to both Virginia and Boston College. BC, which trailed 14–10 at the half, took the lead on a Chase Rettig-to-Chris Pantale 32-yard touchdown pass early in the third quarter and then went ahead by 10 early in the fourth quarter when All-America linebacker Luke Keuchly returned a Harris interception 45 yards for a touchdown. Keuchly, only a junior, became BC’s all-time tackles leader with his 525th career stop in the first half. He also broke his own ACC single-season tackles record of 183 that he set last season. The Eagles ended the season with a 4–8 record, their first losing mark since 1998. They went 3–5 in the ACC Atlantic Division, finishing in fifth place ahead of only Maryland.

Tigers overpower Hogs to secure SEC West title. Tide’s spot in BCS title game all but wrapped up. Pokes need to win big and hope voters jump on board. Ducks host UCLA in first-ever Pac-12 title game. Cardinal likely headed to the Fiesta Bowl. Hokies win yet another Coastal Division title. Sooners playing for a BCS bowl in Stillwater. Hogs overwhelmed by LSU’s rushing attack. Spartans were Legends in the Big Ten. Badgers eager for another shot at Sparty. Trojans end Year 2 of Lane Kiffin era in fine fashion. Cats were the biggest surprise of the 2011 season. Broncos still smarting from lost opportunity vs. TCU. Gamecocks finish off 10-win season in style. Dawgs take 10-game winning streak to Atlanta. Bears prove they can win without RGIII. Frogs can secure MWC title with a win vs. UNLV. Coogs one win away from BCS riches. Wolverines end painful streak vs. hated Buckeyes. Nebraska faithful don’t like three-loss seasons. Nittany Lions had no answer for Wisconsin attack. Pressure will be on Brian Kelly next season. Tigers top Kansas in last Border War showdown. Tech has lost six straight at home to Georgia. Tigers’ late-season struggles continue.


The Badgers will have an opportunity to avenge their “Hail Mary” loss when they face Michigan State in the first-ever Big Ten Championship Game. The Spartans have had a fine season — they won 10 games for the second year in a row — but Wisconsin is the best team in the Big Ten. The Badgers have been mauling the opposition with a devastating rushing attack and an efficient passing game. Junior tailback Montee Ball ranks third in the nation in rushing (135.2 ypg) and has topped the 100-yard mark in all but one Big Ten game. Michigan State is good. Wisconsin is better. Wisconsin 27, Michigan State 20


This isn’t what Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott had in mind when the league expanded to 12 teams to set up a conference championship game. Oregon is a 31-point favorite over a UCLA team that went 6–6 overall and is fresh off a humbling 50–0 loss to USC. The Trojans were obviously the best team in the Pac-12 South, but are banned from the postseason due to NCAA sanctions. That leaves a very mediocre UCLA team — with a coach (Rick Neuheisel) who has been fired — as the representative from the South. This will be ugly. Oregon 48, UCLA 14 VIRGINIA TECH VS.

LSU’s has all but locked up a spot in the national title game, but the Tigers still have plenty to play for — a coveted SEC championship. Les Miles’ club proved once again why it’s deserving of the No. 1 spot in the polls with a thorough 41–17 victory over Arkansas on Friday. The LSU rushing attack churned out 286 yards on 46 attempts and simply wore down the Razorback defense in the second half. Georgia’s defensive numbers are outstanding, but keep in mind that the Bulldogs did not play Alabama, LSU or Arkansas in the regular season. Georgia did not beat another SEC team that had a winning record in league play. LSU 34, Georgia 17

Miami (Ohio)

Brian Ebner

Wisconsin tailback Montee Ball rushed for 115 yards on 18 carries in the Badgers’ loss at Michigan State earlier this season. He leads the Big Ten in rushing.

Virginia Tech on Oct. 1. Times have changed. The Tigers are now 9–3, having lost three of their last four games, each by at least 14 points. Virginia Tech, on the other hand, has won seven straight since that home loss to Clemson and is coming off an impressive 38–0 win at Virginia. Look for Logan Thomas, David Wilson and the Hokies’ offense to have their way against a Clemson defense that has given up an average of 410.7 yards in its last six games. Virginia Tech 34, Clemson 24 SOUTHERN MISS AT HOUSTON (C-USA CHAMPIONSHIP GAME)

Houston is one win away from its first Conference USA title since 2006 and its first-ever spot in a BCS bowl. With a win over Southern Miss, the Cougars, currently 12–0, are likely headed to the Sugar Bowl to face Michigan. But first things first: Southern Miss is a very good team that won 10 games in the regular season, highlighted by a 30–24 victory at Virginia in September. The Golden Eagles are potent on offense — 15th in the nation in total offense and scoring offense — but have had trouble at times on defense. And that is a bad sign with Houston, the nation’s No. 1-ranked offense on deck. This should be entertaining, but the Coogs should prevail at home. Houston 47, Southern Miss 31


No Robert Griffin III? No problem for Baylor — at least for one half against a bad Texas Tech defense. With their star quarterback sidelined with a concussion, the Bears outscored Tech 35–14 in the final two quarters of a 66–42 win at Cowboys Stadium. Griffin III should be back this week, and Baylor will need him at his best against a very good Texas defense. The Horns somehow won at Texas A&M despite gaining only 237 yards of offense. Yards and points should be easier to come by in Waco, but Texas might not be good enough offensively to outscore the Bears. Baylor 30, Texas 27

Athlon Looks Back The 1998 Oregon Ducks’ championship dreams were dashed by UCLA. Score: UCLA 41, Oregon 38 (ot) Date: Oct. 17, 1998 Details: In 1998, Reuben Droughns rushed for over 200 yards in three of Oregon’s first five games, wins over Michigan State, Stanford and Washington. The Ducks also beat Texas-El Paso and San Jose State in that early stretch, but Droughns injured his ankle against the Miners and didn’t play against the Spartans. It was a chilling omen of things to come. The Ducks were 5–0 and ranked No. 11 went they went south to meet No. 2 UCLA. The eyes of the nation were on the game, including ESPN’s GameDay crew. Oregon trailed 24–14 at halftime, then scored 17 straight to take a fourth-quarter lead. UCLA answered with two TDs, the second set up by Droughns’ third fumble of the day. The Ducks would score to tie the game, then survived a missed field goal as time expired, but Akili Smith threw an interception in overtime and the Bruins scored to win 41–38. As big as the loss that day was the one that lingered throughout the season, as Droughns had suffered a broken leg at some point during his 172-yard performance.


Oklahoma State is ranked No. 3 in the BCS, but it appears as though the Pokes are a long shot to play in the national title game — even with a convincing win over Oklahoma coupled with an LSU loss to Georgia in the SEC title game. O-State would still welcome a Big 12 championship and a first-ever appearance in a BCS bowl, but the Cowboys will likely never get over the stunning loss to Iowa State that ultimately cost them a shot at the title. Oklahoma will no doubt provide a stiff challenge, but the Pokes are healthier and have the advantage of playing at home. Oklahoma State 41, Oklahoma 33

Baylor’s ‘Big Griff’ guards Heisman hopeful RG3 The Associated Press

WACO, Texas — Baylor’s biggest player on the field has the initials RG and is referred to by teammates as “Big Griff.” Yes, his name is Robert Griffin. But he isn’t the Heisman Trophy hopeful quarterback for the 19thranked Bears. This is the 6-foot-6, 330-pound right guard blocking for the quarterback with the same name. “We never call him the other Robert Griffin,” said Robert Griffin III, the 6-2, 220-pound quarterback

who isn’t related to the big lineman. “No one calls me ‘Little Griff’, but we call him ‘Big Griff.’ He outweighs me by a lot, but by no means am I little.” There is never any confusion on the field over which Griffin is which. RG3 is the big-play, dual-threat quarterback who has 4,290 total yards and 41 touchdowns (34 passing, seven rushing) this season for the Bears (8-3, 5-3 Big 12). Robert T. Griffin, nicknamed “RG2” by coach Art Briles, is the big man

blocking up front. “He stays pretty, I get dirty. It’s my job,” said Griffin the lineman. “I was born with that name. He was born with that name, and we’re just two athletes that came to Baylor and we love it. ... I love him just like a brother. He has my name, he’s No. 10, I’m No. 79. I’m going to block for him, I’m going to do what I have to do to protect that man and keep him off the grass.” The team with two Robert Griffins already has won the most games at

Baylor in 20 years. The Bears went 4-0 in November after winning only four Big 12 games combined the previous 15 Novembers. Baylor plays its regularseason finale Saturday at home against Texas (7-4, 4-4). Then the Bears will play in their second consecutive bowl game following a 15-season postseason drought. Even while playing one of the nation’s toughest schedules, the Bears still have a chance for their only 10-win season other

than 1980, which was Mike Singletary’s senior season. Griffin the offensive lineman will be playing his final Baylor home game Saturday. He has been a starter both seasons since transferring from Navarro College after playing on a state championship team for Texas high school power Euless Trinity. Before joining the Bears, the lineman was known just as Robert Griffin. The initial from his middle name, Torrez, was added at Baylor to distin-

guish him on rosters and in publications from the quarterback. Griffin, the fourth-year junior quarterback, is one of four players in major college history with at least 9,000 yards passing and 2,000 yards rushing in his career. The game against the Longhorns will be the last chance for RG3 to impress Heisman Trophy voters. “Everybody knows who’s the Heisman,” said Griffin the lineman. “He’s big Griff too. He does big things too, just like me.”


11 • Daily Corinthian

Horoscopes ARIES (March 21-April 19). You can’t expect yourself to endure endless hours of thankless work without retaliating in some way at the end of the day. If your pleasure-to-pain ratio is off, everything will be off. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll find a way to make a deal sweeter, to make an offer more graceful or to create a stir in an otherwise boring situation. It’s a talent of yours, and you’ll feel complete when you use it. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). One of your favorite people will reach out and communicate with you. You weren’t sitting around waiting for the message, but you’ll respond quickly, and that quick response will convey your true affection. CANCER (June 22-July 22). There’s a question in your mind about what you deserve and why. You feel that in many ways you are privileged beyond reason. Yet there’s something more you want, and you wonder whether you have a right to it. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Instead of smirking at the establishment, you lean forward to listen. You’ll like getting out of your own head in this way. And in listening, you learn a great deal about where your talents might best be utilized. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You don’t mind a sprinkle of uncertainty and unpredictability in your day. It makes life exciting — as long as circumstances don’t make you feel too tense or aggravated. When it gets to that point, you can always walk away. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You don’t have to try to be interesting. You’re fascinating to someone as you react to the normal ups and downs of life. Heightened emotions cause you to do something you would not ordinarily do. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). If you take a different action, you’ll get a different result. Don’t change what is already working well. Just know it’s better to be grateful for what comes than to push for more. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your selfcontrol may wane. Or perhaps the personal influence you wield may not seem to be working as effectively as it did last week. You haven’t lost your touch; you just have to work a bit harder to maintain it now. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). A hotheaded person you know may act rashly today. Consider that it might be your steady attitude of stability that allows this person to fly off the handle. You’re the safety net. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll try to cover a wide base of interests, desires and activities — maybe too wide for one day’s work. There’s much to be accomplished before the weekend. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Whatever you hope to gain by your efforts is not likely to be what results. What comes will be better — more surprising, complex and engaging. It’s truly a good day.

Today’s birthday In many ways, you blossom. You become more focused and organized this month. January brings partnership proposals. In February, you will gain a greater understanding of your power, and you will use it to create and control your environment. There’s a tradeoff in the spring that leaves you feeling wealthier. Aquarius and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 1, 44, 39 and 18.

Astrological questions “I don’t know if this is an actual phobia, but I’m afraid to open my email. I’m tired of banking scams and being called on to help a Nigerian businessman recover his lost gold. I’ve signed up for more shopping coupon programs than anyone could possibly deal with in a lifetime of shopping, and I could fill a library with all the free newsletters I get. I never know how to handle weird correspondence from ex-loves or distant acquaintances, let alone the chain letters and unfunny forwards from well-meaning friends. Is it possible that an old-fashioned Capricorn can drop out of the digital world entirely?” It is possible, yes. Many have. Although, because you’re a Capricorn, and therefore probably trying to grow in power and personal influence, you will most likely need to stay involved the way most people do. Your phobia might therefore be handled with a progressive strategy to keep electronic correspondence in a proper and containable compartment of your life. For instance, pick one time in the afternoon when you handle your emails. Set a timer for 15 minutes. Use the delete key with reckless abandon.

Misbehaving kids often learn from parents’ bad example DEAR ABBY: I want you to know how much I agree with your answer to “Paying for My Popcorn in Oregon” (Sept. 15), who complained about her niece sneaking food into the theater. I used to teach a parenting class to parents who had kids in trouble with the law. I started out by asking, “How many of you teach your children to lie, cheat or steal?” Of course nobody admitted they did. I then had about 20 items I’d list, the movie food issue being one, driving over the speed limit, and so on. At least one of the 20 applied to everybody. Then I’d say: “You taught your kids that it was OK to lie, cheat and steal — it’s only getting caught that’s bad. That’s why you are in my class today.” This is what that niece is teaching her

children. — PAUL IN DENVER DEAR PAUL: Thank you for Abigail agreeing. Van Buren However, I’m Dear Abby sorry to say that many readers thought the issue was more about the cost and selection of snacks than that of cheating the theater owners. My newspaper readers comment: DEAR ABBY: For a family of four to see a movie and get a drink and popcorn or candy costs about $80. This is highway robbery. The cost of a drink is about 5 or 10 cents to the theater, and they charge a whopping $5. The same goes for popcorn. Let’s

be serious. How much does popcorn cost? A tub of popcorn at a theater is $7.50. My children want the whole theater experience, which includes a snack. How can a family afford to go to the movies at these prices? Theater owners should be able to make a reasonable profit on the snacks, but this is ridiculous.

IS THERE LIFE AFTER DEATH? People have always believed there is life after death. The first inhabitants of America believed in what they called a “happy hunting ground” after death. If life after death does not exist, then man is on the same level of animal life. Why be concerned about the way we live if there is no life after death? If there is no life after death, there would be no reason to be religious. The Bible teaches there is life after death. Job believed there was life after death and that he would see God. “And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God”. (Job 19:26). David believed that he would see his dead son and that he would dwell in the house of the Lord forever. “But now he is dead, wherefore should I fast? can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me” (2 Sam 12:23). “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever” (Ps 23:6). Solomon revealed that man’s spirit would return to God who gave it. “Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it” (Eccl 12:7). Paul refers to the reward of the righteous after death. “For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens” (2 Cor 5:1). The Bible refers to some who were alive after death. “I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. God is not the God of the dead, but of the living” (Matt 22:32). Peter, James and John saw Moses and Elias talking with Christ on the mount of transfiguration. “And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him” (Matt 17:3). Luke referred to the condition of the rich man and Lazarus after death in Luke 16:19-31. There is life after death and how we live will determine where we will live after death. All will be raised either to eternal life or eternal damnation. “Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation” (John 5:2829). Only the prepared can look forward to death. Are we prepared for life after death?

‘Faithful servant’ escorts soldier’s body home Civil War letter The following letter is dated July, 1862 and postmarked West Point, Georgia. It is addressed to Bob Williams of Rienzi and reads as follows ... “It pains me much to record to you the death of your beloved son, Zeb. He deposed this life on Sunday night at half after two in the morning. His illness was short after he had taken bad. I will start him home as soon as I can get him ready. John has been a faithful servant to Zeb. I put confidence in him in getting Zeb home. I was able to wait on him in all the later part of his illness. He had medical attention from two able physicians and was treated kindly by all the family where he boarded. His expenses will be tolerably heavy. I do not know what they will be yet, I will put them in his black book what I pay, if I have to pay any. I want John to have enough to take him home. If I do you can

Vicki Roach Family Branches

pay the amount to my mother that suits you. “Yours respectfully signed by L.B. Mitchell.�

This L.B. Mitchell was Lyman Beecher Mitchell. He was the father of Burge Mitchell, Houston Mitchell, Mrs. W.A. McCord and Ely B. Mitchell. L.B. Mitchell was a Lieutenant in Company E, 42nd Mississippi regiment. He enlisted in the Confederate Army at old Jacinto and was in many battles, one of which was Gettysburg. Bob Williams of Rienzi sent the slave, John, along with his son Zeb when he enlisted in the Mississippi regiment. It was custom for soldiers to take along a Negro slave to wait on them when they went to war. When Zeb became sick at the camp, located at Columbus, Georgia,

It took the slave nearly eight days traveling almost constantly to make the journey. But he finally arrived at the old home place and there was great rejoicing as well as many tears. There is an aftermath to this story. While Dr. Carroll Kendrick was serving in the Mississippi Legislature, a bill to grant a pension to Negro slaves who served in the war with their masters came up for consideration. Dr. Kendrick told the story about the faithful Negro slave John to the assembly and without a dissenting vote the bill passed.

about 40 miles from the town of West Point, John was at his side day and night. There evidently was no hospital at the camp, or the one there was crowded, and that was the reason Zeb Williams was at a private home. Zeb died and Lt. Mitchell assumed the responsibility of seeing that his body was sent back to Rienzi. The return from Georgia to Rienzi covered a distance of about 400 miles, so Lt. Mitchell worked out a plan to preserve the body for the long journey. He burnt some charcoal and placed it, after it had cooled, in the coffin around the body of Zeb. Securing a wagon and a team of oxen and a permit he sent the slave John on his way to Rienzi with the body.

Tishomingo was against secession Old Tishomingo county, which included the present Alcorn, Tishomingo and Prentiss

counties voted against secession from the Union when a vote was taking in Jackson on Jan. 9, 1861. However, since the majority of delegates to the meeting voted in favor of withdrawal from the Union, Old Tishomingo delegates signed the article of secession. The Mississippi legislature had called a convention to meet Jan. 7, 1861 to consider secession. Delegates from the counties were elected prior to that date. In Old Tishomingo county two factions arose. Two tickets were presented for consideration of the voters. The faction favoring immediate unconditional secession was represented by A.B. Dilworth, W.M. Rogers, L.B. Gaston and B.D. Hodges. The ticket favoring

secession conditional upon all Southern states going out of the Union together, and opposing individual state action, included A.E. Reynolds, W.W. Bonds, J.A. Blair and J.P. Young. This group won the county election and attended the secession convention in Jackson. Mississippi was the second Southern state to secede preceded only by South Carolina.

Veteran photo display moves to new location By Mark Boehler

The photographic tribute to the veterans which gained much attention while on display at the Corinth Library will soon have an extended stay at another area library. “A Salute to Veterans� — which features almost 200 photos of men and women from the region who answered America’s call and served in the armed forces — will go on display next week at the George E. Allen Public Library in Booneville. It will remain on display in Booneville for about a month. The exhibit made its debut on Veteran’s Day at the American Legion in Corinth before moving to the Corinth Library. The display has gained so much good response, the invitation for an extended stay for Prentiss County citizens to see the display was gladly accepted by Alcorn County photographers Bill Avery and Lisa Wilbanks, who undertook the project following the success of their recent “Faces and Places Please see Display | 2

MHP pursuit ends in felony By Jebb Johnston

A man who fled from the Mississippi Highway Patrol in Alcorn County Tuesday afternoon has been charged with felony DUI. Initially, there was some speculation that the man might

have been one of the suspects in the Abbeville bank robbery earlier in the day, but officials determined that was not the case, said MHP Trooper Ray Hall. William R. Goodwin III, 31, of Oxford, was charged with felony DUI and some misde-

meanor traffic violations. A pursuit began on Mississippi Highway 350 near the Alcorn and Tishomingo county line when a trooper attempted to stop Goodwin, who tried to evade the officer. The man turned off of the highway onto

a logging road. He then fled on foot and was apprehended a short time later after a search of the area with the assistance of the Alcorn County Sheriff’s Department and the Mississippi Department of Transportation.

Blaze heavily damages downtown; mayor calls fire a ‘dreadful night’ By Jeff York For the Daily Corinthian

ADAMSVILLE, Tenn. — A late night fire resulted in heavy damage to three buildings in downtown Adamsville on Monday. The fire began around 11 p.m. and seven fire departments responded to help get the fire under control. The fire is believed to have started in the Saw Meal Restaurant at some point around 10:45 p.m. and spread to damage the Saw Meal Coffee Shop, the Dance Academy and the Tanning Alley. Firefighters

“It was a dreadful night for Adamsville that we will not forget anytime soon. On what should have been a quiet, snowfilled evening, we witnessed our vibrant downtown engulfed in flames. I stood in the middle of Main Street in shock of what was taking place.� David Leckner

Adamsville Mayor worked throughout the night to contain the fire and protect the other downtown buildings.

“We do not have any idea what caused the fire,� said Sherry Kiser, who co-owns two

of the three buildings with her husband Sammy. “I’m sure that we will rebuild, but I just do not know when yet.� Michelle Gieger, Sherry Kiser’s sister, is the owner and manager of the restaurant. She had closed the business at 9 p.m. and had left the building around 10 p.m., according to Kiser. “It was a dreadful night for Adamsville that we will not forget anytime soon,� said Adamsville Mayor David Leckner. “On what should have been a Please see Blaze | 2

Caterpillar gift gives Salvation Army a lift By Steve Beavers

Caterpillar provided a much needed spark for the Salvation Army. The Corinth plant donated a forklift battery that kept the agency’s bale warehouse up and running. “Our battery went down about two months ago and the cost to replace it was unbelievable,� said Salvation Army Director Michelle Miles. “Caterpillar was there to help.� Without the electric forklift battery -- which can run in cost up to the $4,000-$5,000 range, the agency’s bale warehouse would have been out of commission. “We go through everything that is donated,� said Miles. “What we make from recycling our bales helps fund our social service programs ... Caterpillar most graciously came through to keep that part of the Salvation Army going.� Caterpillar Group Manager Please see Caterpillar | 2

of Alcorn County” and “Me and My Mom” exhibits at the Corinth Library. The veterans featured in the exhibit are from Alcorn, Prentiss, Tishomingo, Tippah and Union counties in Mississippi, McNairy County in Tennessee and several other states, including Alabama. For the two photographers — who spent countless hours shooting photos and assembling the displays — the work was a labor of love and an eyeopening experience. And, the response has been great. “The veterans are very appreciative of it,” said Wilbanks. “We are saying thanks to them for service to their country and they are the ones thanking us.” “The response has been so big we are thinking about doing it again next year,” added Wilbanks, as many veterans left their phone numbers with their name in the guest registry at the photo exhibit. The photos are displayed on 14 black felt covered 4 foot by 8 foot panels. Intermingled with the panels are flags, boots and military stand-up displays which were donated by the Army, Navy and Air Force recruiting centers in Corinth. The American flag is featured somewhere in each of the pictures. “It’s taken a lot of effort, but it’s been well worth it,” added Wilbanks.

Through late night and into the morning hours, these volunteers worked together to prevent the total loss of our downtown area,” said Leckner. “On behalf of the City of Adamsville and the downtown association, I would like to extend our sincere gratitude for their hard work and efforts.” “We must remember buildings can be rebuilt, lives cannot,” said Leckner. “God bless the brave men and women who volunteer to keep us safe from harm.” Adamsville Fire Chief Terry Thrasher was out of town and unavailable for comment on the fire.

Are your burdens too heavy to carry? One of my faithful readers, Paul Fleming, who lives near Marion, Ill., sent me something the other day that has tremendous potential to help us to better carry our burdens, or whatever it is that is weighing us down. The article has to do with stress management, and the Lord knows we need that kind of help today, with the state of our nation’s economy, the health-care debate and the breakdown of character, ethics and morals that have been the bedrock of our society. The article, by an unknown author, is very good and I would like to share it with you and ask you to seriously ponder what it says. See if it does not make a difference in your perspective and how you face the challenges in the days ahead. It begins: “A lecturer when explaining stress management to an audience, raised a glass of water and asked, ‘How heavy is this glass of water?’ Answers called out ranged from 20g to 500g. The lecturer replied, ‘The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long

you try to hold it. If I hold it for a minute, that’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my Jim right arm. If I Davidson hold it for a day, you’ll have to call Columnist an ambulance. In each case, it’s the same weight, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.’ He continued, ‘And that’s the way it is with stress management. If we carry our burdens all the time, sooner or later, as the burden becomes increasingly heavy, we won’t be able to carry on. As with the glass of water, you have to put it down for a while and rest before holding it again. When we are refreshed, we can carry on with the burden. ‘So, before you return home tonight, put the burden of work down. Don’t carry it home. Whatever burdens you are carrying now, let them down for a moment if you can. ‘My friend, put down everything that may be a burden to

you right now. Don’t pick it up again until after you have rested a while. ‘Here are some great ways of dealing with the burdens of life: ‘Accept that some days you’re the pigeon and some days you are the statue. ‘Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them. ‘Always wear stuff that will make you look good if you die wearing it. ‘Drive carefully. It’s not only cars that can be “Recalled” by their maker. ‘If you can’t be kind, at least have the decency to be vague. ‘Since it’s the early worm that gets eaten by the bird, sleep late. ‘The second mouse gets the cheese. ‘When everything’s coming your way, you’re in the wrong lane. ‘Birthdays are good for you. The more you have, the longer you live. ‘You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person. ‘Some mistakes are too much

fun to only make once. ‘A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour. ‘Have an awesome day and know that someone has thought about you today.’” Well, that’s the end of the article, and I believe you will agree, it contains some great advice and suggestions for any of us who sometimes let our burdens pile up and feel like the weight of the world is on our shoulders. One thing that really helps me is humor. When I can laugh a lot, I am not nearly as uptight as when I am too serious. It’s been said, and rightly so, we should take what we do seriously, but we should never take ourselves too seriously. There is another old saying that comes to mind that applies here. We can burn the candle at both ends, and it does produce a brilliant flame, but we are not nearly as bright as we think we are.

Hurricane seasons ends, but Irene’s effects remain BY KELLI KENNEDY AND TONY WINTON Associated Press

MIAMI — Say goodbye to the 2011 Atlantic hurricane season, which was a study in contradictions: It spared the usual Southern targets while Irene paralyzed the Eastern seaboard and devastated parts of the Northeast with deadly flooding. The season ended Wednesday as the sixth straight year without U.S. landfall of a major hurricane, yet Irene was one of the costliest storms in U.S. history and killed at least 47 people here and at least eight more in the Caribbean and Canada. Irene was not considered a major hurricane because it did not have winds exceeding 111

mph, or Category 3, when it made landfall in North Carolina on Aug. 27. “You would think the impacts would be somewhat light, but the damages caused by Irene will be up there in one of the top 30 or so storms,” National Hurricane Center Director Bill Read said. The season produced the third-highest number of tropical storms on record, with 19, but only a slightly higher-thanaverage number of hurricanes, with six. Read said low pressure systems on the East coast and high pressure systems over the central U.S. created favorable steering currents that kept the storms mostly churning far out to sea. Storms won’t move into high

pressure, clearing the way for an easy storm season for the U.S. Gulf Coast. An exception was Tropical Storm Lee, which formed off the Louisiana coast and drenched much of the eastern U.S. “It was another very odd year,” said Dr. Jeff Masters, Weather Underground’s director of meteorology. The rare combination of nearrecord ocean temperatures but unusually dry, stable air over the Atlantic was partially responsible for the unusually high count of named storms, Masters said. Hurricane Ophelia was the strongest storm of the season, at one point strengthening to a Category 4 with 140 mph winds when it was just northeast of Bermuda. Ophelia hit south-

eastern Newfoundland, Canada, as a tropical storm, but caused little damage. The last major hurricane to hit the U.S. was Wilma, which cut an unusually large swath of damage across Florida in 2005. Irene caught many New England residents by surprise in late August, following a rare path as it brushed up the Eastern seaboard from North Carolina, across the Mid-Atlantic and near New York City, where meteorologists said they couldn’t ever recall a direct hurricane hit. Broadway shows were cancelled as New York officials ordered 370,000 people to leave their homes in low-lying areas and immobilized the nation’s biggest subway system.

Taking care of garden during winter It looks like we’re finally settling in to a winter weather pattern in the Alcorn County area. I have been receiving some questions about what to do with areas where people had gardens this year. During the fall and winter one of the most important things you can do to your garden spot is “soil test.” The main thing we want to get from this soil test during this time of year is the pH, then you can make a lime application if needed. It will then have time to work prior to the spring planting season. One of the most common problems with garden areas is low pH. If your pH is as low as 5.0, research shows you are wasting over 50 percent of the fertilizer you put out simply because the plant cannot utilize the fertilizer that is available. If you move the pH up to 6.0, you then only realize a 19 percent loss. Moving the pH to 7 will make 100 percent of the fertilizer available with

no loss, so you can see the importance of liming. Even if Patrick you soil Poindexter tested and put lime Ag Lines out last year, you need to soil test again. You might not need any lime this time but it pays to double check. It is also important to remember many of the problems that were experienced in your garden this year might be around next year if appropriate measures aren’t taken to combat them. These problems include fungi, bacteria, nematodes and many other microorganisms. All of these have little difficulty in surviving winter months. If we have a light winter this year in Alcorn County it could prove to be a problem this coming spring and summer. By this I mean the insects and other nuisances such as those

listed above won’t have as hard a time surviving this winter as those in the past. Experienced gardeners know a winter cleanup will help reduce disease carryover. Removal of diseased leaves from an area where you might have experienced a problem with fungi last year will help in controlling it if it happens to come back this year. Perennial weeds in and around the garden area should be destroyed since these are often hosts for viruses and different fungi. If there are any old plants or parts of plants that are still in the garden, they should be removed from the area. Fungi and bacteria can overwinter in these plants and come back in the spring with another onslaught of problems. If you have fruit trees that had problems with canker, black knot or other types of fungus problems last year, you should remove those branches that might be dead or dying. This will

also help control some insects that overwinter in dead branches. It is important to remember if you prune a tree with a fungus problem, you should disinfect your pruning tools between cuts. This will prevent the spread of the fungus to different branches and other trees. A good disinfectant can be either bleach diluted to 10 percent strength or rubbing alcohol. Pruning tools should be washed and dried before storing to prevent rusting. It is also important to remember any major pruning that doesn’t involve diseased or dying branches can be put off until later on in the winter months if need be. This would include fruit trees, grape vines and crape myrtles. For more information concerning the winter care of your garden or trees, call Patrick Poindexter, county director, at the Alcorn County Extension office at 286-7755 or visit www.msucares. com.

Default judgment entered in abortion lawsuit Associated Press

JACKSON — A state judge has entered a default judgment in a lawsuit that claimed a woman nearly died from a failed abortion in Mississippi that left her in a coma for a week. Daschica Thomas and her husband filed the lawsuit in 2005 in Hinds County Circuit Court against Dr. Joseph Booker, the National Women’s Health Organization of Jackson and others. The suit claimed Thomas went into the coma because of a blood infection brought on by a botched abortion in 2003. Circuit Judge William Gowan entered the default judgment Tuesday in Thomas’ favor after the defendants didn’t show up for trial. The ruling didn’t mention damages,

Thursday, December 1, 2011

and it wasn’t immediately clear when that issue would be decided. The ruling came less than a month after Mississippi voters rejected a constitutional amendment that would have effectively banned abortions in the state. Mark Wann, who once represented Booker in the case, said he’s no longer involved in the litigation and wouldn’t comment. Wann said he doesn’t know where to find Booker. A phone number for Booker wasn’t immediately available. The state Department of Health said Mississippi had one licensed abortion clinic in 2003, and the state has only one now. The current clinic is on the same Jackson site as the former clinic, but under different ownership.

Shannon Brewer is director of All Women’s Healthcare of Jackson, which is currently the only abortion clinic in Mississippi. She said the National Women’s Health Organization no longer owns the Mississippi clinic and Booker doesn’t work at the clinic now. Brewer said she doesn’t know where he is. The lawsuit claims that Booker wasn’t the doctor originally scheduled to perform the abortion, but the other doctor was out that day. When Booker was performing the abortion, he allegedly stopped abruptly, said he couldn’t finish it and told Thomas to come back so it could be completed by the other doctor. The lawsuit claims a “reasonably prudent” physician would have treated

Thomas with antibiotics because of her diabetes, but Booker didn’t. Thomas allegedly came down with a blood infection, went into a coma and needed blood transfusions. The lawsuit also claims, among other things, that Thomas couldn’t have children after the abortion and that her husband lost his job for missing work while caring for her. In December 1999, three dozen bags of aborted fetuses and other remains were found buried in a shallow grave behind a business in the Gulf Coast city of Ocean Springs. An investigation revealed that the fetuses came from a storage room Booker had rented in nearby Gulfport, a city where he had performed abortions at a gynecology clinic.

Corinth, Miss.

Guest View Don’t expect clueless politicians to fix economy What makes an economy work . . . or not? Ask any 10 economists and you’ll get at least 20 different answers. They really don’t know, but they can speculate based on years of study and a wide diDanny versity of shaky ideological Gardner models that never work as planned. Columnist Just ask President Obama’s economic advisors, if you can find them. They’ve all left the White House after the stimulus debacle when they prophesied unemployment no higher than 8-percent, and jobs, jobs, jobs. Of course, there have been many explanations why nothing has worked to turn our souring economy around, including some explanations we have turned the economy around but we just don’t know it yet. That’s economist-speak for “we’re not as bad off as we would have been, and we’re not taking the blame for how bad it really is.” I just finished reading the second edition of “Aftershock,” a book by David Wiedemer, Robert A. Wiedemer and Cindy Spitzer. They are what I would call “bubble” economists having “accurately predicted the domino fall of the conjoined real estate, stock, and private debt bubbles that led to the financial crisis of 2008 and 2009.” They’re predicting the bursting of the dollar bubble, government debt bubble and the world bubble. Don’t read this book if you’re looking for warm fuzzy predictions of good times. They define a bubble economy as one “that grows in a virtuous upward spiral of multiple rising bubbles – real estate, stocks, private debt, dollar and government debt – that interact to drive each other up, and that will inevitably fall in a vicious downward spiral as each falling bubble puts downward pressure on the rest, eventually pulling the whole economy down.” I’m no economist, but that doesn’t sound good to me. But wait, it can get worse. The title of their book, “Aftershock,” is defined as “Phase II of the popping of the bubble economy. Just when many people think the worst is over, then comes the aftershock, when the dollar bubble and the government debt bubble will burst.” Interestingly, the authors don’t blame anyone in particular for our economic woes, but portray a sort of perfect storm of bad decisions by Washington, Wall Street and even good old American instant gratification, i.e. spending what we don’t have. Besides not blaming anyone in particular, they also see no particular solution that would lead us away from the bursting bubbles they’re predicting. Like I said, this is not a good book for those who want to feel better about the economy. Nevertheless, we’re already hearing politicians on all sides explain how they plan to fix the economy, or in the case of those still in office why they can’t fix the economy under the current circumstances. In other words, they don’t know how economies work either. Why in the world would we expect any of these politicians to fix the economy with more government programs? I believe we’d be a lot better off if the government would just leave the economy and businesses alone. (Daniel L. Gardner is a Corinth native who currently lives in Starkville.

Obama sure to channel the Spirit of ’48 You could almost hear the hands rubbing together in glee in President Barack Obama’s political shop at the failure of the congressional super committee. How the president’s politicos must welcome a new count in the indictment against the “do-nothing Congress.” The phrase famously originates from the 1948 presidential election when Harry Truman (who borrowed it from a reporter) used it to lambaste a justelected Republican Congress and claw his way to an upset re-election victory. Hopeful Democrats think “Give ‘em hell, Barry” can use the 1948 template to overcome his poor standing in the polls in another victory over another new, unpopular Republican Congress. That the Truman campaign is a template at all is a measure of Obama’s desperation, and of his definitive termination of the politics of hope and change. We associate 1948 with the smiling, triumphant Truman holding up a postelection copy of the Chicago Daily Tribune with the erroneous headline “Dewey Defeats Truman.” That’s because there are no compelling photos of the low demagoguery that fueled

his re-election. In his book “The Last Campaign,” Zachary Karabell Rich writes: “It Lowery was a campaign of us National them, Review and of anger and bitterness, of the haves and have-nots. Truman fought to lead the country for another four years, and to achieve that victory he was willing to sow dissension, stir up fear, and slander his opponents.” In this sense, President Obama is sure to channel the Spirit of ‘48. At his whistle-stops, Truman ranted: “The Republican gluttons of privilege are cold men. They are cunning men. And it is their constant aim to put the government of the United States under the control of men like themselves. They want a return of the Wall Street economic dictatorship.” Subtle. This was when he wasn’t comparing Republicans to Hitler and Tojo as threats to democracy. Obama’s rhetoric isn’t so purple, but his agenda has boiled down to tax increases for the rich, a politically popular wedge issue

that Democrats leverage at every opportunity. Want to reduce the deficit by $1.2 trillion over the next 10 years when we’re set to spend roughly another $45 trillion? Sorry, it can’t be done without tax increases on the rich. Want to extend the temporary payroll tax cut? Sorry, it must be paid for with tax increases on the rich. Tax increases on the rich have become the Democrats’ alpha and omega, their sine qua non of government. Harry Truman, the nasty virtuoso of crude populism, would surely approve. But as Jay Cost pointed out in an essay for The Weekly Standard, Truman benefited in 1948 from conditions that Barack Obama, no matter how vigorous his hell-giving, can only envy. Truman ran against the backdrop of popular New Deal legislation of recent vintage; Obama’s signature pieces of legislation, the stimulus and ObamaCare, stink in the nostrils of the American public. Truman used a brief downturn in the economy toward the end of 1948 to his advantage, winning over the Midwest by blaming Republicans for not doing enough to alleviate falling crop prices; any downtick in this tenu-

ous economy will be a disaster for Obama. Truman ran against a Republican in Thomas Dewey who was reluctant to attack him; Obama’s opponent will happily blast away. Then there’s the matter of Democratic complicity in Congress doing nothing. Super committee Democrats rejected a last-ditch Republican offer of about $600 billion in consensus savings. The GOP wanted to salvage something; the Democrats wanted nothing – at least nothing without a tax increase. If President Obama were so worried about the deficit stalemate, he could publicly offer his own package of specific entitlement savings that would immediately break the logjam. He can’t because his base won’t abide it, and a substantial bipartisan accomplishment would undo his campaign theme. It’s too cynical by half, but Obama is going to make like Truman: He’ll buckle his chin strap, say anything to win and, if he succeeds, hope history cleans up the ugly affair later.

Current issues cause shock, disappointment In the spirit of the holiday season I have a gift for you: a freshly minted Herman Cain joke. Q: Mr. Cain, what about Libya? A: I never laid a hand on her. But life isn’t all jokes and foolishness. It just seems that way when you’re dealing with politics. There are serious issues to be addressed – college football, for example. The grimmest college scandal in memory has erupted at Penn State, a quiet university deep in the Pennsylvania mountains, dedicated to academic excellence and watching football. One of its most widely respected football figures – a retired assistant coach of national reputation – has been persuasively accused of being a serial pedophile who used his access to the university and its athletic department to enhance the practice of his perversion. Worse yet, the entire hierarchy of the school – from head coach to athletic director to president – seems to have turned a blind eye to

the situation. For years. W h i c h would be bad enough if it happened at just any Donald football-firstKaul a n d - e v e r y thing-elseOther Words b e - d a m n e d school (of which there are many), but Penn State has long been considered the gold standard of football integrity. It was big-time football the way it should be. Its ancient coach, Joe Paterno, was without rival when it came to reputation. Now the president, the athletic director, and Paterno have been fired, and Paterno’s name has been taken off the trophy awarded to conference champions – the football equivalent of being brought before the troops at dress parade and having the epaulets and brass buttons ripped from your uniform. Not many things shock me anymore, but I confess to being shocked at the Penn State scandal. On another front, I’m not

so much shocked as disappointed at the number of people who don’t have a clue when it comes to Occupy Wall Street and the rest of the Occupy movement. Talking heads and editorial writers have looked disapprovingly at the (mostly) young people setting up camp in financial districts around the nation and asked, “What do they want?” Or even, without irony, “Why don’t they get a job?” And that’s the point, isn’t it? There are no jobs; not the kind the protesters have gone to college and trained for. Times are hard for new graduates these days. I doubt that their future has been this bleak since the Great Depression. On average, they graduate more than $25,000 in hock, often facing bleak job prospects. Then they look at Wall Street and the big banks and see the very people who gamed this economy into disaster still making millions of dollars a year playing the same games and complaining about taxes.

because people are skimping on things like milk and meat. At the same time, Saks Fifth Avenue is selling lots of $1,000 handbags and $2,000 suits. What do they want, the protesters? They want justice, for openers. They want the kind of society they were promised, one that gives people an equal chance at success if they’re willing to work for it. They don’t want a society where the top 1 percent of the population commands more than one-fifth of the nation’s income and more of than 35 percent of its wealth, a society ruled by a corporate elite whose only religion is greed. They don’t want a society where in tough times the only people asked to make sacrifices are the old, the young, and the poor. More than anything, they want their future back. It’s not a lot to ask, actually, not if we really are the exceptional nation we pretend to be. (OtherWords columnist Donald Kaul lives in Ann Arbor, Mich. otherwords. org)

State State Briefs Associated Press

Drainage project money sought NATCHEZ — Natchez officials say they intend to finish the North Natchez Drainage Project even if they have to borrow the money. City Engineer David Gardner said $750,000 is needed to finish the project. Gardner says he and his staff are working to find grants to help match the $4 million already provided for the work. He says the city has several pending grant applications with several agencies for various programs, including the Delta Regional Authority and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Charity apologizes for Seabee statue BILOXI — A veterans’ charity group is apologizing for mistakes on a Seabee statue. The group was contacted when local Navy veterans noticed the hat atop the statue’s head wasn’t correct for a Navy chief petty officer. The insignia on the hat resembles one on a U.S. Coast Guard hat. Others noticed the medals were displayed on the outside of the coat’s lapel, instead of under it. The group known as Operation Never Forget uses donations to fund memorial busts of fallen military personnel.

‘Green’ cottages part of housing development PASS CHRISTIAN — A new neighborhood in downtown Pass Christian is expected to appeal to people who want to live and work in the heart of Gulf Coast town. The neighborhood is a mixture of MEMA cottages and what’s being called “green cottages.” There are 40 cottages in all. Twenty of the rental homes are one-story, refurbished Mississippi Cottages that were donated by a nonprofit group. The rest are two-story cottages designed to be energy efficient, from the electrical and water fixtures to the appliances. Part of the funding comes from a grant that supports building “greener” homes. The cottages are expected to be finished in mid-February. There are one-, two- and threebedroom models. The rent ranges from $500 a month to $1,200 a month.

Former Gov. Waller dies Borsig: MUW won’t close, merge


COLUMBUS — Jim Borsig, the preferred candidate to become president of Mississippi University for Women, says the university is not going to close or merge. Borsig also said MUW, which has also enrolled men since 1982, won’t abandon its historic mission of educating women. “The women’s mission is important, but it doesn’t have to be our only mission,” Borsig said Wednesday during an on-campus meeting with civic leaders. The state College Board was expected to offer him the MUW presidency Wednesday after he spent several hours meeting with students, faculty and other groups on campus. The job pays $218,000 a year, with about $25,000 of that coming from the university’s foundation. Borsig is currently the associate commissioner for external relations and public policy at the College Board.

JACKSON — Former Mississippi Gov. William Waller Sr., who as a district attorney twice unsuccessfully prosecuted the man eventually convicted of killing civil rights leader Medgar Evers, has died. He was 85. Waller’s law office said he died Wednesday, but declined to release other details. Waller died at St. Dominic Hospital in Jackson, where he had been admitted Tuesday night. Funeral arrangements were incomplete. A list of survivors was not immediately available. The Democrat served from 1972-76 — a time when Mississippi governors were limited to one term. Waller also served as district attorney in Hinds County in the 1960s and twice tried to get a conviction against Byron De La Beckwith for Evers’ assassination. In 1994, prosecutor Bobby DeLaughter was able to secure a guilty verdict when blacks were able to serve on the jury.

“Under the circumstances, I think we did the very best job that we could,” Waller said in a 2001 interview with The Associated Press “I think the jury was taking the position that they wanted to be convinced beyond a reasonable doubt, to a moral certainty, and a lot of jurors interpret that as eyewitness, direct proof.” Charles Evers, the brother of Medgar Evers, said it’s unlikely Beckwith would have been convicted some 30 years later if it weren’t for Waller laying the foundation with the two trials in the 1960s. “He was a true devoted Mississippian who believed in law and order. He believed that if you committed a crime you paid the price. He tried Byron Del Beckwith twice, which was unheard of in those days to prosecute a white man for doing anything to a black man. “He did everything he could. He just couldn’t get a conviction,” Evers said. Waller ran an unsuccessful campaign for governor in 1967 but turned

things around in 1971, when he rallied against the “Capitol Street” gang that was supporting his opponent. Waller, a Democrat, went on to win the general election over Charles Evers, an independent candidate. Former Gov. William Winter, who was the lieutenant governor during Waller’s administration, said he was saddened to hear a longtime contemporary had died. Winter said Waller was a friend and a successful governor who tried to do what he thought was best for Mississippi. “He contributed much to the progress of Mississippi. We are all indebted to him for his leadership,” Winter said. “Bill Waller was forthright. He was frank, candid. He spoke his opinions in a way that didn’t always please people, but he called it just like he saw it.” Gov. Haley Barbour said in a statement that “Mississippians have lost a great leader who launched an era of change that continues to this day.”

GOP: Offsetting cuts must cover tax relief

Cain accuser stands by claim of longtime affair

WASHINGTON — Any extension of this year’s payroll tax cut must be paid for with savings from elsewhere in the budget, House Speaker John Boehner said Wednesday. Boehner’s comment meant that House and Senate Republicans are united in demanding that any eventual measure, which could cost over $100 billion, not add to the federal deficit. It also suggested that President Barack Obama and Congress would have to find mutually acceptable savings before any extension could become law. The current tax cut expires Jan. 1.

WASHINGTON — An Atlanta businesswoman who has asserted she had a longstanding affair with Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain stood by her story Wednesday despite his denials, saying she was not proud to admit it. “Our relationship was on and off for the last 13, 14 years,” Ginger White said in a nationally broadcast interview. “This was not a consistent love affair that went on every day for the last 14 years, so he is correct when he made that statement.” But White also said she was “disappointed” that Cain reportedly referred to her as a “troubled Atlanta businesswoman.”

U.S. finds reassurance in Egypt’s voting WASHINGTON — The Obama administration offered tempered praise this week as millions of Egyptians cast ballots in an election likely to be the country’s freest and fairest ever — a vote the U.S. insisted go forward despite objections by pro-democracy street protesters. The administration wanted timely elections even though they risked leaving the U.S. with less influence and fewer friends in the Middle East. After two days of largely peaceful voting marked by high turnouts, U.S. spokesmen termed Egypt’s first vote since Hosni Mubarak’s ouster a success. They focused on the openness of the parliamentary election and not on the Islamic hardliners who may end up the big winners — or what that might mean for U.S. policy or U.S. ally Israel. “I congratulate the Egyptian people for a peaceful, successful start to their election process,” Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said in

Questions and answers about Europe’s debt crisis BY PAUL WISEMAN Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The coordinated plan that the Federal Reserve and other central banks announced Wednesday is intended to ease financial strains that threaten Europe’s common currency and could tip the global economy into recession. The Fed, the European Central Bank, the Bank of England and the central banks of Canada, Japan and Switzerland said they would make it easier for banks to get dollars if they need them. Stocks soared in response. The plan helped boost confidence among investors and lenders and shows that the banks are able to take coordinated action to encourage lending. But it isn’t a permanent fix for the broader crisis in Europe: Debt burdens are overwhelming Spain, Italy and other nations and raising fears that they’ll go into default. Banks that hold much of that debt have been reluctant to lend to each other. Earlier, markets had fallen after the finance ministers of the 17 countries that use the euro failed to reach an agreement on resolving the crisis. That means major disputes will now have to be addressed by the leaders of all 27 countries in the European Union who will hold their own meeting next Friday in Brussels. Here are some questions and answers about the crisis: Q: Why the urgency now? A: Earlier efforts, like bailouts of Greece, Portugal and Ireland, haven’t convinced investors that European policymakers can or will ease the crushing debts of some European nations. Jittery investors are demanding that European governments pay ever-higher inter-

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration scrambled diplomatically Tuesday to repair the damage caused by a NATO air assault that killed 24 Pakistani soldiers, hoping Pakistan won’t play spoiler in the U.S.-backed plan to shore up Afghanistan’s security and bring international forces home. Senior State and Defense Department officials were reaching out to their counterparts in Islamabad, while the first battlefield accounts suggested that NATO and Pakistani forces may have attacked one another in a tragic case of mistaken identity, with each believing the other was Taliban. A U.S. investigation was under way into the incident, the deadliest among allies in the decade-long fight against al-Qaida and other extremist groups along the Afghan-Pakistani frontier.

est rates on their bonds. Yields on Italian bonds, for instance, top 7 percent. That’s considered unsustainable. Even Germany, Europe’s economic powerhouse, struggled to sell bonds last week. Q: Why are higher interest rates such a problem? A: Governments have to pay more interest on their debts. So they can’t spend as much on goods and services that fuel economic growth. The economy slows. Tax revenue then falls. The cost of unemployment benefits and other social programs rises. Some countries might abandon the euro, plunging the continent and perhaps the world’s economy into recession. Q: Why would countries want to jettison the euro and go back to their own currencies? A: To become more economically nimble. When they joined together 12 years ago, the 17 eurozone gave up their currencies and adopted the euro, and they surrendered control of their interest-rate policies to a new European Central Bank. That meant they couldn’t cut rates to boost their economies. Nor could they reduce the value of their currencies, to give their exporters an edge. (A lower currency makes exports cheaper for foreigners to buy.) Abandoning the euro would let them escape an economic trap. Q: How did Europe get into this mess? A: The euro made it easier to do business across Europe and made the continent a potent economic bloc. Yet the experiment was flawed. Countries were harnessed to one another despite different economies and cultures. Banks lent at low rates even to weaker countries like Greece. The euro meant lenders didn’t have

to worry that individual countries would suffer inflation that would have reduced the value of their loans. Governments overspent for years and got away with it because they could borrow at low rates. But once the Great Recession hit hard, their debts became devastating. Q: Why is a solution so hard? A: The ECB and Germany have resisted aggressive action. Many economists want the central bank to buy the debt of Italy and other struggling countries. That would push down interest rates and ease those countries’ borrowing costs. The ECB has bought Italian and Spanish bonds. But it’s loath to do so in a big way. The ECB says it must control inflation, not be a lender of last resort to governments. And it doesn’t want to set a precedent for bailing out financially ailing nations. Germany opposes one idea — creating joint bonds backed by the whole eurozone — because it fears its own borrowing costs would surge if it had to borrow jointly with weaker countries. Q: What options have European officials considered? A: Things that would have been unthinkable just weeks ago. One option would be to have countries cede control of their budgets to a central authority. That authority would stop countries from spending beyond their means. There has also been talk of forming an elite group of euro nations to guarantee each other’s loans. It would require fiscal discipline from any country that wants to join. Once that happens, the ECB might be more willing to buy government bonds aggressively, thereby pushing down interest rates and easing governments’ debt burdens.

FAA: Changes coming to prevent delays on the tarmac Associated Press

U.S. scrambles to contain Pakistan fallout

Thursday, December 1, 2011

WASHINGTON — Obama administration officials promised Wednesday to make changes before the Christmas travel season aimed at preventing nightmare scenarios like the one in October when hundreds of passengers were trapped for hours on planes in Hartford, Conn., during a freak snowstorm. “We can act fast,” Federal Aviation Administrator Randy Babbitt said as he and Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood discussed the changes with reporters. Babbitt described a disastrous scene at Bradley International Airport in which airliner tugs couldn’t get traction on the ice, power outages

shut down luggage belts and other problems. Much of the chaos might have been mitigated with better communication among airlines, airports and air traffic controllers, he said. Planes crammed with hundreds of passengers on Oct. 29 could have been accommodated at other airports if airlines had known so many flights were going to Hartford, Babbitt said. Instead, travelers were stuck on planes, some for more than seven hours, after 28 flights were diverted to Bradley because of weather and equipment problems at New York area airports. Transportation Department rules limit tarmac delays to a maximum of three hours before airlines must allow passengers to get off the plane. Airlines that exceed that limit face fines of up to $27,500 per person. But sometimes the lack of open gates or Customs officials make it impossible for airlines to let passengers disembark. In the October storm, carriers only knew of their own diversions and not what other airlines were doing, Babbitt said No one, including controllers, had a complete picture of what was happening, Babbitt told over 100 aviation officials at a forum on tarmac delays hosted Wednesday by

FAA and the Transportation Department. “There is a lot of knowledge out there,” Babbitt said. “If everyone had access to the whole picture they wouldn’t have continued to send planes to (Bradley).” The diversions overwhelmed Bradley, which has only 23 gates. The airport received 20 inches of snow during the storm, which marked the first time that area of Connecticut had received over an inch of snow in October in more than a century of record-keeping, a National Weather Service official told the forum. The storm knocked out power to the airport several times during the day. Luggage belts quit working. Tugs that move planes out of the way couldn’t get traction on the ice. Planes had trouble refueling and de-icing because of the power outages, preventing departures. Seven of the diverted planes were international flights, but there weren’t enough Customs officials working to handle a large number of unexpected passengers who had to wait for more officials to arrive. If a plane can’t get deiced, “you might as well just weld the aircraft to the ramp — it’s not going anywhere,” Babbitt said. And if planes can’t depart, there’s no room to unload planes that have landed.

BACK IN BLACK The Dow moved back into positive territory for the year in November. It’s traditionally a good month for stocks and, thanks to a strong rally in the last three days, this year was no exception. Since 1950, the Dow has posted an average gain of 1.5 percent. Yet, as of Friday, the Dow was down 6 percent for the month on worries about Europe’s debt crisis and the U.S. government’s deficit. But the Dow climbed to close up 0.8 percent for the month. A strong start to the U.S. shopping season helped optimism. As did a joint move Wednesday by central banks to let European banks borrow dollars more cheaply.

ISM manufacturing index

The nation’s manufacturing industry is still growing, economists expect a report today to show. But it may not last. A read54 ing above 50 on the Institute for Supply Management’s manufacturing index indicates growth. Economists expect a reading of 52, which would be the strongest 52 since June. But economists with Capital Economics say that troubles in Europe and slowing growth in China could mean less demand for U.S. factories in the next 50 few months. Manufacturing recovered J before the rest of the economy after the recession, but it began slowing in April.

Construction spending

Kroger earnings

Look for stronger construction spending by the private industry to again outweigh drops in government spending. Economists predict overall spending grew for the third straight month in October. In September, public spending on construction sank 0.6 percent. But private spending rose 0.6 percent on increased residential, health care and transportation construction.

The grocery chain’s thirdquarter results should give a clue on how shoppers are feeling. Three months ago, it said that customers were feeling more pessimistic than at any time in the year. Customer baskets were less full at the register than they were before. Financial analysts expect Kroger to report a slight dip in thirdquarter earnings per share from a year ago.

Walnut tweaks annual tourney BY H. LEE SMITH II

WALNUT — Monday night’s late snow played havoc with the annual Walnut Tournament, knocking out the final two games featuring the host Wildcats and Lady Wildcats twinbill with Ashland. According to Walnut boys’ head coach Mike Lewis, those games will not be made up and be recorded as forfeits. Ripley swept Potts Camp in the games that were played on Monday. The Lady Tigers won 69-43, with the Tigers claiming a 82-46 win. Walnut tweaked the final eight games, four each for Thursday and Saturday, to produce better matchups each night. The remainder of the tournament, which features an all-Tippah County clash between Walnut and Ripley in the final two contests, is as follows:

Kentucky embracing view at top of rankings The Associated Press

LEXINGTON, Ky. — Kentucky coach John Calipari said his freshmen are “oblivious” to what it means being ranked No. 1 in the country. However, with the Wildcats atop the poll for the first time in nearly two years, Marquis Teague, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Anthony Davis are about to experience it firsthand. “I’ve never been in this po-

sition. It’s pretty exciting just to know that you’re No. 1,” Teague said. “But you’ve still got to come out to perform.” The Wildcats (6-0) returned to No. 1 for the first time on Monday since a oneweek stint in the 2009-10 season, but Calipari has been starting three freshmen and two sophomores who weren’t around the last time the program was at the top. “I said (to them), ‘I want

you to understand, it’s not a burden, it’s a badge of honor,” Calipari said. “That’s what it is. And playing here, this is what you’re trying to attain. It’s not when we want it, but we’re there.” The last few times, the stay at No. 1 was short-lived. The top-ranked Wildcats lost to South Carolina in 2009-10 and Marquette in the 2003 NCAA tournament regional finals.

“It’s an honor, but it’s November,” Davis said. “There’s not really much that we can do. We’re not even halfway through the season.” This group takes the floor as No. 1 for the first time Thursday when they host St. John’s (4-3) as part of the SEC-Big East challenge. Then on Saturday they face No. 5 North Carolina, which fell Please see KENTUCKY | 9

from the top spot following a 90-80 loss to UNLV. The North Carolina loss came hours after Kentucky beat Portland. “We were talking about (being ranked No. 1). We weren’t sure. We were like, ‘Are we going to be No. 1?’ and all this,” Davis said. “But at the end, it just means we’ve got to work even harder now because teams are going to come after us.” St. John’s will be without coach Steve Lavin as he continues to recover from prostate cancer surgery.

who spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because it’s an ongoing investigation. The U.S. Secret Service already searched Fine’s house last Friday. Federal prosecutors with the U.S. Attorney’s office in northern New York, which is leading the investigation, would not say what they sought or found there, saying it was under seal. The warrant approving the search of his of-

fice also was sealed. Three men, including two former Syracuse ballboys, have accused Fine of molesting them as children. He has denied the allegations. The university fired him Sunday after a third accuser went public and ESPN broadcast a 2002 audiotape, obtained and recorded by accuser Bobby Davis, of a conversation between Davis and a woman ESPN identified as Fine’s wife, Laurie, in which

she says she knew “everything that went on.” As the investigation continues, advocates for sex abuse victims have said Hall of Fame coach Jim Boeheim should resign or be fired for adamantly defending Fine and verbally disparaging the accusers. Contacted by The Associated Press by phone Wednesday, Boeheim repeated several times, “I can’t talk about anything.”

er and returned for four more before missing the Red Storm’s last two home games. “We want coach Lavin to feel like he can take as much time as he needs based off our behavior — that’s the most important thing for us,” assistant coach Mike Dunlap said. “I don’t want to paint our players as being machine-like, because they’re not. But, they feed off of the rest of the coaching staff’s energy levels. We have a tendency as a staff to have a lot of energy.” St. John’s hasn’t beaten the No. 1 team in the country in 27 years and has started with a tough schedule early against ranked opponents Arizona and Texas A&M before dropping

a home game on Saturday to Northeastern. Freshman forward Moe Harkless says he’s excited to travel to Rupp Arena because Kentucky reminds him of his own team. “They’re like a longer version of us. But if we put more pressure on them and play more physical than they play, we’ll be fine,” Harkless said. “We just have to go out there, play hard, and execute.” Calipari said the Wildcats have struggled with physical opponents and that he’s noticed other deficiencies on things like breaking traps and defending 3-point shooters off screens after watching Portland hit 11 of 23 shots from beyond the arc.

Still, Kentucky has won every game by at least 10 points this season, including over thenNo. 13 Kansas on Nov. 15. But the Wildcats have not played anyone at home with a current RPI above 121. That’s led to lopsided victories against Marist (by 50), Radford (48) and Portland (24) that has Calipari ready to see what his team can do. “These are learning opportunities, and you can’t learn against Popcorn State. You just can’t,” the coach said. “You can play those games and you’ve got to fill out your schedule, but you need these kind of games. You just don’t need 12 of them, especially when you have a young team.”
