Over 11,600 turn out for election Bain beats Wood; Parks edges Powell
Smith easily wins school leader race
Bubba Carpenter coasts to easy margin of victory

He said Kossuth had a very impressive turnout of about 1,200. Caldwell described the general election as a smooth day of voting. “We had a lot of machines set up, and that really helped a lot of the precincts,” he said. Among the regional races, longtime District Attorney John
Gina Rogers Smith is ready for the challenge. The Biggersville Elementary principal earned the chance with a resounding victory over Republican Rivers Stroup in the race for Alcorn County Superintendent of Education. “I know there is a lot of work ahead, but I am looking forward to it,” said Rogers Smith. “This job has to have someone step up and motivate children to be successful, not only now, but for the future.” Rogers Smith, who defeated incumbent Stacy Suggs in the primary and Bo Seago in the runoff, completed the hat trick on Tuesday night. The Democrat collected 5,165 votes (68.8 percent) compared to Stroup’s count of 2,334 (31.1 percent) on Tuesday. “The citizens of Alcorn County believed in our vision and were so hospitable to my family,” said the superintendent-elect. “I want to thank the citizens, my husband and family for their hard work.” The Kossuth High School graduate won all 14 precincts, dominating the 2nd District boxes of Five Points (604), Central (578) and Glen (504) along with her home box of Kossuth (818). The new county education leader improved on

Turnout bigger than expected; Young loses DA re-election bid BY JEBB JOHNSTON email@example.com
Alcorn County voters turned out in bigger than expected numbers Tuesday for a heavy ballot that ushered in changes on the local and state level. The turnout of 11,608, including more than 600 absentee ballots, was just short of matching the summer’s first primary.
Those numbers include all absentee and affidavit ballots. Circuit Clerk Joe Caldwell had predicted 10,000, and a pleasantly warm and sunny day saw many residents head to the polls. “The weather really makes a difference,” said Caldwell. “It can change things a lot. You couldn’t have had the weather any better today.”
Ross will be new Voters return 2 justice county tax collector court judges to office; Jones named coroner

Relief. That was the first word out of the mouth of Larry Ross following a long election season. The campaign journey ended with the 62-year-old being elected Alcorn County Tax Collector on Tuesday night. “The most important thing is I want to praise the people who helped and give the glory to God,” said Ross outside the Circuit Clerk’s office. “I am thankful for the kind of race and the men who I ran against ... they are all good men.” Ross garnered 51.7 percent of the vote with his count of 5,873. He bested Republican challenger Bobby Burns (4,465) and Independent canRoss didate Milton Sandy (1,009) in becoming a first-time winner. “I am so blessed and will do my best to not let the people of Alcorn County down,” said Ross. Ross took 13 of the 16 precincts. His biggest count came at College Hill where he totaled 631 votes. The
Alcorn County voters chose to give the two incumbent justice court judges another term at the bench in Tuesday’s general election. Post 1 Justice Court Judge Steve Little was elected to his fifth term over challenger Luke Doehner, chef and owner of the Generals Quarters Inn. Doehner carried half of the Post 1 precincts, but Little emerged victorious with a total of 2,922 votes over Doehner’s 2,662. “I appreciate all of the voters who turned out,” Little said. “I want to thank my supporters, family and friends — and I look forward to serving the county for Little the next four years.” Three-term incumbent Jimmy McGee was reelected as Post 2 Justice Court Judge over challenger Ken Weeden, a former Baldwyn alderman. McGee took six of the post’s nine precincts and

Democratic Party candidates made a clean sweep in the races for county supervisors. In the first district, Democratic candidate Lowell Hinton, a farmer and program associate at the MSU Extension Service, defeated District 1 employee Eddy Sanders with 74.68 percent of the vote in Tuesday’s general election. Hinton took all three of the precincts in the district and finished with a total of 1,755 votes over Sanders’ 589. “It’s been a long campaign and I am really humbled by the support and vote I received,” Hinton said. “I Please see SUPERVISOR | 2A
Republican Arnold wins House District 3 seat over Cadle BY BRANT SAPPINGTON bsappington @dailycorinthian.com
Republican William ‘Tracy’ Arnold defeated Democrat Tommy Cadle Tuesday night to claim the Mississippi House of Representatives seat left
vacant with the retirement of William ‘Billy’ McCoy after three decades in the state house. Arnold, pastor of The Vineyard church in Prentiss County, came out on top in the general election over longtime Booneville
attorney Cadle, carrying clear margins on both sides of the county line in the district that covers most of Prentiss County and a small portion of Alcorn County. Arnold received a total of 3,899 votes over

Cadle’s total of 3,496. In Prentiss County, Arnold had a total of 3,296 and Cadle came in second with 3,034 votes. In Alcorn County, the total stood at 603-462 in favor of Arnold. Arnold was unopposed
in the Republican primary for the seat while Cadle won the Democratic nomination in a threeway race for the right to represent his party in the general election. The representative-elect said he is grateful for all
the support shown to him throughout the campaign and understands the victory is just the beginning. “It’s an honor and I truly appreciate the people and their faith in me,” Please see ARNOLD | 2A

He finished with 5,798 votes in his victory over Zane Elliott, earning all but one box in the August victory.

rish. Jones netted 7,593 votes over Parrish’s 3,498 — and carried every precinct in Corinth and Alcorn County. “I want to thank the citizens of Alcorn County for giving me the opportunity to serve as their next coroner, and I look forward to the next four years,” Jones said. “I’ve been doing this job, and now it’s time to switch titles from deputy coroner to chief — and I look forward to serving the citizens.”
Bain led with 3,772, or 51.5 percent, to Wood’s 3,550. “I’m ready to get to Jackson. I’m ready to get to work,” said Bain. ”I’m ready to bring jobs up to Alcorn County. I’m ready to protect our conservative values up here and make sure that our state employees’ retirement is taken care of and make sure that our educators get what they need to do their jobs.” While campaigning, he said the need for jobs and concern about public e m ployees’ r e tirement were t h e t o p issues Carpenter voters discussed. He described Wood as a “fine, worthy opponent.” “I commend him on a good, hard-fought race,” said Bain. He follows Harvey Moss (D), who did not seek reelection after 28 years in the post. “Thank you so much to Alcorn County,” said Bain. “I’m not going to let you down.” Wood carried five precincts — East Corinth, East Third Street, Kossuth, North Corinth and West Corinth. The Senate district 4 race was a nail-biter that left apparent winner Rita Potts Parks (R) reluctant to declare a win until the official results emerge in the neighboring counties. She did, however, express thanks for the vote and, like the others, said she heard voters’ call for jobs while on the campaign trail. The unofficial dis-

want to thank the Good Lord for giving me this opportunity, and I want to thank my friends and family for their hard work and support. But I know the real work is ahead of us and I’ll be asking for help again as we face the challenges ahead of us.” Residential builder and developer Dal Nelms (D) defeated Independent Billy Paul Burcham and Republican Jon Newcomb in the District 2 supervisors race. Nelms finished with over half of the total votes cast, with 1,237 (53.36
p e r cent) — over B u r cham’s 2 2 2 (10.42 p e r cent) a n d NewRoss comb’s 768 (36.04 percent). During the campaign, Nelms paid tribute to his father, the late Grady Nelms, who was always known to carry toothpicks. The younger Nelms was defeated by less than 20 votes in the 2007 District 2 Supervisor race.
“When I ran last time he said, ‘We’ll do it again in four years.’ He passed away last year,” Nelms explained. “In the campaign we made boxes of toothpicks — they looked like small matchboxes.” In the third district Tim Mitchell, owner of Biggersville’s Mitchell Farms, beat independent candidate Keith W. Hughes with over three-quarters of the total vote cast. Hughes finished ahead in the South Corinth precinct, but Hughes won the district’s two other precincts — Biggersville and Rienzi — to cinch the supervisor’s seat.
District 4 was the setting of the closest supervisor’s race of the general election, with incumbent Gary Ross claiming 57.25 percent of the vote for a victory over Republican challenger Pat Barnes’ 42.75 percent. Ross carried the district, receiving a majority of the votes in both the College Hill and Kossuth precincts. The fifth district supervisor’s race was settled in the August 28 runoff election with incumbent Jimmy Tate Waldon finishing with a secure lead over Jimmy Travis Drewery.

a role in the win. He pledged to get to work from day one on trying to improve opportunities for the people of the third district. “My goal is to work to make Mississippi more business friendly to bring jobs to our people,” he said. He said he wants to focus on passing legislation to restrict illegal immigration,

protect existing jobs and create better opportunities for job creation in the state. Arnold steps into a seat held since 1980 by McCoy, who announced earlier this year he would not seek reelection to the post. In addition to over 30 years of service in the house, he has served as Mississippi’s speaker of the house since January 2004.

trict-wide tally was 8,862 for Parks and 8,578 for Powell. In Alcorn County’s official totals, Parks led 5,878 to 5,540. Powell did not expect the outstanding absentee ballots in Tishomingo and Tippah counties to change the outcome. “The people have spoken,” he said. “I’m not sad. I’m not mad. When the people elected me to this office, I did the best I knew how to do. I accepted their call for me, and I’m accepting their call for me to step down.” Powell, seeking a second term, said he felt he was the target of a negative advertising campaign. “I just hate that the Republican Party got as nasty as they got,” he said. “I could have gone very negative, but I chose to take the high road and not go negative.” Powell said he has strived to work across party lines during his time in office. “I wish Ms. Parks well,” he said. For district 1, which includes five precincts in Alcorn County, Lester “Bubba” Carpenter of Burnsville enjoyed a solid victory over Democratic challenger Thomas McCarley, leading 2,066 to 836 in Alcorn County and 3,113 to 1,608 in Tishomingo County. “We worked very hard and ran a positive campaign,” said Carpenter. “I think that showed in the results.” He said many voters voiced concern about the state retirement issue. However, “Jobs and economic development is still number one in their hearts,” he said. Carpenter said he appreciates voters’ support and is looking forward to serving the people for another four years.
Young (D) easily carried his home county but fell short across the district. With 156 of 172 precincts, Trent Kelly (R) had 55 percent, or 36,285, to Young’s 29,428. In Alcorn County, Young led 6,993 to 4,108. Brandon Presley (D) won re-election as public service commissioner for the northern district and carried Alcorn County with 6,057 votes to Boyce Adam’s 4,725. Incumbent Northern District Transportation Commissioner Mike Tagert (R) also won reelection and carried Alcorn County with 6,318 votes to Ray Minor’s 4,347. Alcorn County heavily favored outgoing Lt. Gov. Phil Bryant (R) for the state’s top office with 8,210 votes, 72 percent, to Johnny DuPree’s 3,110. Although the “personhood” initiative failed on the state level, Alcorn County gave support to all three initiatives. The “life at fertilization” initiative got 6,681 “yes” votes, or 61 percent, and 4,298 “no” votes. The eminent domain initiative, which passed, enjoyed the strongest

If Alcorn County residents didn’t receive their monthly payments from the Social Security Administration, 11.9 percent of total personal income in the county would be lost, a total of $117,787,547 in 2009. Alcorn County is more dependent on Social Security payments than is the rest of the country. Nationally, 5.5 percent of total personal income in 2009 came from Social Security payments. In Mississippi, 7.7 percent of all income comes from these payments. In Alcorn County, 9,830 people receive some form of Social Security payment, either an old age pension, a survivor benefit or a disability check, according to the Social Security Administration and the Bureau of Economic Analysis. Social Security beneficiaries represent 27.4 percent of the total county population. In rural counties and counties such as Alcorn with smaller cities, Social Security payments constitute a much larger chunk of the local economy than in urban areas. A greater percentage of people in rural America receive these payments than in urban counties, and so rural counties have higher average payments per resident. “In many rural places, Social Security is a very critical element of the local economic base,” said Peter Nelson, a geographer at Middlebury College in Vermont. “It’s less important to a place like Los Angeles because there is so much additional economic activity going on there.”
More degrees to be offered at Lambuth campus Associated Press
JACKSON, Tenn. — The University of Memphis at Lambuth, just one semester old, has announced plans to expand its aca-
demic offerings. The campus in Jackson will add eight new degree programs for the spring 2012 semester, including bachelor’s de-
grees in English, communications, criminal justice, psychology, public relations, social work, accounting and entertainment music indus-
tries. In the fall of 2012, undergraduate degrees in biology/pre-med and nursing will be added. The Jackson Sun re-
ports that when classes began this fall, about 300 students were enrolled in courses in education, business and nursing.
Total Social Security payments in Alcorn County amounted to $3,288 per person in 2009. The national average was $2,199 per person and in Mississippi it was $2,393. Social Security payments in Alcorn County have been changing as a proportion of total income. These payments amounted to 5.5 percent of total income in 1970, 6.9 percent in 1980, 8.4 percent in 1990, 9.4 percent in 2000 and 11.9 percent in 2009. Social Security payments are particularly important to rural counties and small cities because the money is largely spent in the community. “The seniors who get these payments are primarily going to spend their money locally,” said Mark Partridge, a rural economist at Ohio State University. “And they are a key reason why some communities are still viable. If this money dried up, there wouldn’t be a lot of these small towns.” Social Security payments amount to 5 percent of the total income in urban counties. In counties with small cities, such as Alcorn County, these payments amount to 8.2 percent of total income, and in rural counties, Social Security totals 9.3 percent of all personal income. More than one out of five Americans living in small cities and rural counties received some kind of Social Security check in 2009.

Who’s looking out for The Little Man? BY ROBERT PURVIS The general perception of the current twoparty political system has long been that the Republican Party represents big business and the wealthy, while the Democratic Party functions in the best interest of the common people. The case can certainly be made Republicans pander to the likes of Wall Street tycoons and investment banking firms. According to data compiled by opensecrets.org, Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs and Citigroup Inc. all were included among the top donors to George W. Bush’s 2004 presidential campaign. However, all three reappeared as top donors to Obama’s 2008 campaign as well. President Bush was also extensively criticized for his ties to the oil industry, which became the focus of wide-spread accusations regarding his administration and policy making. However, British Petroleum (BP), the fourth-largest oil company in the world and responsible for the 2010 Gulf oil spill, donated more to President Obama’s campaign in 2008 than it did President Bush in 2004. BP’s campaign donations to the 2008 Obama campaign totaled $71,051 versus that of George Bush, which was $14,165 in 2004. The fact of the matter is both parties are equally culpable of fraternizing with corporate elites. Therefore, what is to blame for the misconception Democrats possess a greater compassion for the less-fortunate in our society? One must first understand progressive ideology and how it has impacted the American political system. It first appeared on a major scale in 1901 with the election of President Theodore Roosevelt, who was the first to propose major progressive programs such as environmental conservation, The Pure Food and Drug Act and the regulation of industry. He was also the first to aggressively use the presidency as a forum for promoting particular domestic policy initiatives. Roosevelt was greatly influenced by the philosophies of Herbert Croly, a progressive intellectual. In his 1909 book, “The Promise of American Life,” Croly wrote the American belief in individual freedom would result in what he called “a socially undesirable distribution of wealth.” This was, of course, in direct contrast to the constitutionalism of the American founding. Following Roosevelt’s administration, such progressive ideas increased under the presidency of Woodrow Wilson. Wilson firmly believed the founding principles of limited government, individual liberty and economic freedom were outdated and should therefore be eradicated. Furthermore, he believed the idea of inherent, God-given, natural rights was absurd. Wilson’s embodiment of progressivism can be characterized by the philosophy of Karl Marx, which stated, “ . . . from each according to his ability to each according to his needs.” The progressive movement continued to manifest itself throughout the programs of future presidencies, such as that of Lyndon Johnson’s The Great Society and Franklin Roosevelt’s The New Deal. The one major characteristic all programs of progressive legislation share is the desire to take us somewhere “new”; in other words, further and further away from limited constitutional government as the framers intended. We currently find ourselves in a society that has developed a mentality of entitlement due to social programs created by the progressive movement. For decades, the progressivedominated Democratic Party has been the source of major social programs creating the illusion among many Democrats have a greater concern for the common people. However, nothing could be further from the truth. Progressive Democrats seek to create a society of voters which is solely dependent on the government, while convincing their constituency the liberties they sacrifice are worth the entitlements they receive in return. The progressive movement continues to execute its assault on American constitutionalism, with the current administration leading the way. President Obama has demonstrated his adherence to progressive ideology by not only proposing socialist legislation such as Cap and Trade, increased taxation on the wealthy, and a nationalized healthcare system, but also verbally by stating his belief Americans should “spread the wealth.” The age-old question of which party is really looking out for the common people is, in some ways, a trick question because it should be us as individuals, rather than the government, who regulates our own lives. As we find ourselves on the cusp of another major presidential election year, we should all remind ourselves it is our responsibility, as individuals, to govern our own lives. The instant we submit to the idea our rights are given to us by government rather than our creator, we open the door to our demise as a free society. After all, if we derive our rights from man, then man has the power to take them away.

The strike wasn’t anywhere close to general, since most people with jobs don’t have time for idle political indulgences. But the protesters turned out a few thousand. Even before it truly got out of control at night, protesters were smashing windows and spraying graffiti on walls. After shutting down the port, a black-clad contingent headed downtown, where they set fires and threw firecrackers, rocks and bottles at the police. In a perfect expression of wanton destructiveness, they attacked road signs. Other Oakland protesters tried to restrain the violence, without much luck. Such is the dynamic of mobs. With no specific agenda and no standards for disentangling legitimate demands from lunacy, the Occupy movement is prone to get more extreme rather than less. A free-floating radicalism is written into its DNA. The catchy, initial promotional poster for Occupy Wall Street designed by the left-wing magazine Ad-
busters depicted a ballerina standing on the iconic Wall Street bull surrounded by riot police. In its absurdist aesthetic and forecast of conflict with the authorities, the poster presciently represented the future of the Occupy movement. Everyone acknowledges the right of the Occupiers to protest and to live however they please. They can request permits to march every day, and try to levitate the Federal Reserve building if they want. They can, in a fine American tradition, go off and create freakish communes where they hold goods in common and live in splendid squalor. But they shouldn’t be allowed to break the rules while building fetid encampments on property not their own, and their contempt for the police should be tolerated by no one. Mere protests probably won’t satisfy the movement, though. It is a self-styled “occupation,” which inherently involves taking what is not yours. It’s already ugly and will probably get more so.

Then he drove, periodically throwing up his hands before jamming on the brakes to show us how the car didn’t shudder when stopped in a big fat hurry. “If this gig doesn’t work out for you,” I said, “you could always drive a Paris taxi.” Soon enough we began that irritating process of making an offer, then waiting while the enthusiastic salesman checked with his manager, who, bless his heart, was on the verge of losing money on this car.

Republican Bryant wins governor’s race BY EMILY WAGSTER PETTUS Associated Press
JACKSON — Republican Phil Bryant of Brandon won the Mississippi governor’s race Tuesday, defeating Democrat Johnny DuPree of Hattiesburg. Bryant will take office Jan. 10 to succeed Republican Haley Barbour, who couldn’t seek a third term as governor. With 83 percent of precincts reporting late Tuesday, Bryant had 61 percent of the vote and DuPree had 39 percent. Bryant, 56, makes history as the first Republican to succeed another Republican as Mississippi governor in modern times. Barbour unseated a one-term Democrat in 2003. Bryant outspent DuPree 7-to-1, and the two nominees avoided criticizing each other during the campaign. “It’s been a long, hard campaign,” Bryant told The Associated Press by phone from his electionnight party in Jackson “The thing I really am
proud of is that Johnny and I ran a campaign without attack ads, without ugly mail-outs. We differ on some issues and that’s good. That’s what American democracy is all about.” DuPree, 57, is the first black candidate to win a major-party nomination for governor of Mississippi. He’s in his third term as mayor of Hattiesburg. He was not immediately available for comment. Republicans have held the Mississippi governor’s mansion for four of the past five terms. Vicksburg contractor Kirk Fordice unseated Democratic Gov. Ray Mabus in 1991 to be-
elected back-to-back Republican governors. That’s a tremendous testament to Mississippi’s GOP leaders and elected officials as well as the type of campaign run by Phil Bryant.” Bryant said he plans to hold a news conference Wednesday at the Capitol to unveil his 2012 legislative agenda, including a proposal for performance-based budgeting or state agencies. He said he’s also proposing cre-
ation of dual enrollment aimed at helping high school students who don’t want to earn four-year college degrees. Bryant said the students could take vocational courses at community colleges while
they’re still in high school so they’ll have marketable skills when they graduate. Kathryn Gray of Jackson, a public school educator, said she voted against Bryant, though she thought he would win.

GOP makes new offer on taxes, Medicare cuts BY ANDREW TAYLOR Associated Press
WASHINGTON — With a Thanksgiving deadline fast approaching, the GOP members of a deficit-reduction supercommittee are pressing a plan to cut the deficit by about $1.5 trillion over the coming decade, showing flexibility on tax revenue increases for the first time while proposing to gradually raise the Medicare eligibility age to 67 for future retirees. The plan floated by Republicans, including tea party favorite Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, would place sharp limits on the total amount of tax deductions and credits that a person could claim, in exchange for significantly lower income tax rates. At the same time, Republicans are willing to accept a net increase in individual income tax revenues of about $300 billion over the coming decade. The proposal also would cut spending by about $700 billion, mixing a less generous costof-living adjustment for Social Security beneficiaries with further cuts to agency operating budgets and curbs to the booming

growth of Medicare and the Medicaid health care program for the poor and disabled. Other revenues would come from proposals such as auctioning broadcast spectrum, raising Medicare premiums and increasing aviation security fees. The idea, discussed by a bipartisan subgroup of supercommittee lawmakers Monday evening, contrasts with a Democratic plan introduced last month that proposed revenue increases of about $1.3 trillion that would also be netted after a rewrite of the loopholecluttered federal tax code. Both proposals are similar in concept to ideas discussed last summer in negotiations between House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and President Barack Obama. During talks on legislation needed to increase the government’s borrowing cap, Boehner and Obama discussed a complete overhaul of the tax code that would have garnered some $800 billion in new revenue over a decade. But the Boehner-Obama talks fell apart over taxes and benefit cuts, and the final legislation included cuts to the day-to-day operating budgets of Cabinet agencies totaling $900 billion over a decade — and establishment of the deficit panel with unusual powers to develop a plan for further cuts. The panel is charged with coming up with $1.2 trillion in deficit cuts over a decade; failure to accomplish the goal would trigger automatic spending cuts across a wide range of federal programs.
The plan proposed Monday was more modest, congressional aides said, raising about $250 billion from individual tax reform and another $40 billion from using a new inflation adjustment when updating the income levels for tax brackets. An overhaul of the corporate tax code could raise another $60 billion, the aides said. Aides to supercommittee Democrats attacked the proposal, saying the GOP plan for a top individual tax rate of 28 percent would give wealthier earners large tax cuts while sharply cutting back tax breaks important to middle class workers such as deductions for mortgage interest and state and local taxes. And they said the proposed tax increases were too small when measured against the nation’s huge debt. The GOP plan assumes that the full menu of Bush-era tax cuts — including a generous cut in the estate tax enacted last year — would be made permanent when calculating the revenue “baseline” from which to start tax reform. Democrats said the $300 billion or so GOP revenue proposal was a pittance relative to the size of the deficit problem. The government ran a $1.3 trillion deficit in the recentlycompleted budget year. “I have yet to see a real, credible plan that raises revenue in a significant way to bring use to a fair, balanced proposal,” said Sen. Patty Murray, DWash., the co-chair of the 12-member supercommittee.

The number of individual investors who are bullish about stocks has been as erratic as the market.

Net investment in U.S. stock mutual funds Individual investors are feeling better about stocks after the market’s October comeback. About 40 percent say they’re optimistic about how stocks will do over the next six months, according to a survey by the American Association of Individual Investors. In late September, 25 percent of investors were bullish. The average since 1987 is 39 percent. The S&P 500 hit its low point for the year on Oct. 4, when it briefly went into bear market territory. Since then, the index is up 19 percent. U.S. economic news has gotten better. Europe has made progress on resolving its debt crisis. The U.S. job market improved slightly from July to October. And companies are reporting strong earnings. Third-quarter profits for the S&P 500 are expected to reach a record $23.78 per share. That would be up 7 percent from the second quarter. Investors are still pulling money out of stock mutual funds, which they’ve been doing since May. But the pace has slowed. Investors withdrew $3.2 billion during the week of Oct. 26, down from $3.5 billion a week earlier and $5.8 billion two weeks earlier.

Bernanke and small business
Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke will speak at the Fed’s Conference on Small Business and Entrepreneurship. Small businesses have been unwilling to hire because of the economy. So investors want to hear if he has a forecast for when companies are likely to start taking on employees. Small business hiring has been a factor in economic recoveries – but not this one.
Investors want to see if Cisco System’s efforts to turn itself around are working. The computer networking company is restructuring and getting out of businesses like its Flip video camera operation. Investors also want to know if Cisco is getting back the government business it lost during the debate over the national debt during the summer. Another concern: How much did the slower economy hurt business this summer?

Cardinals interview Francona BY R.B. FALLSTROM The Associated Press
ST. LOUIS — Former Boston Red Sox manager Terry Francona has interviewed with the St. Louis Cardinals for their manager opening, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press on Tuesday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no announcement was made. Francona managed the Red Sox for eight seasons and left after they wasted a nine-game September lead in the AL wild-card race. St. Louis is seeking a replacement for Tony La Russa, who retired two days after winning his second World
Series in 16 seasons with the Cardinals. More interviews are planned for Wednesday, believed to be with third base coach Jose Oquendo and Hall of Fame second baseman Ryan Sandberg, who managed the Phillies’ TripleA team last season. St. Louis previously interviewed Mike Matheny, Joe McEwing and Chris Maloney. Matheny and Maloney have organizational ties and McEwing played for St. Louis. The 48-year-old Oquendo has been the third base coach the last dozen years. He played his final 10 major league seasons with the Car-
dinals from 1986-95 when he was nicknamed the “Secret Weapon” as a nod to his versatility. St. Louis has received permission from the Phillies to talk with Sandberg, ruled out earlier for the managing job with the Cubs, the team he starred for from 1982-97. After he left the Red Sox, there were reports players drank beer and ate fast food-fried chicken in the clubhouse during games rather than root on their teammates. The Boston Globe reported the club was concerned he was “distracted,” living in a hotel while separated from his wife and taking painkillers to deal
with knee operations. Francona has said his personal life did not affect his performance. Boston ended an 86-year championship drought in 2004, Francona’s first season, when the Red Sox swept the Cardinals in the World Series. Francona also managed the Red Sox to a sweep of Colorado in the 2007 Series. Francona is the secondwinningest manager in Red Sox history with a 744-552 record and 8-0 mark in the World Series. Francona and Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak did not respond to requests for comment.

Central squads rip Wheeler BY STEVE BEAVERS firstname.lastname@example.org
GLEN — Alcorn Central opened the home basketball campaign in impressive fashion. Both Central squads had no problem in disposing of Wheeler. The Bears held the Eagles to only a lone field goal over the first eight minutes en route to a 98-50 victory. In the opener, the Lady Bears jumped out to a 13-1 advantage and never looked back in their 78-57 win. Central (1-1) took advan-
tage of the Wheeler (0-1) cold streak, building a 26-1 cushion at the end of one. The Bears extended the lead when Preston Cline scored on an assist from Trae Bain for a 38-6 margin three minutes into the second period. AC built the advantage to as many as 50 points to even its slate on the young season. In the first contest, Alexis Harmon and Katie Foster each bagged 16 points apiece as the Lady Bears improved to 2-0. Central returns to action with a home date ver-
sus Tishomingo County on Thursday night.

NBA union: No deal; no fear of ultimatum, either BY BRIAN MAHONEY The Associated Press
NEW YORK — NBA players made it clear Tuesday: No deal. No fear of Commissioner David Stern’s ultimatum, either. “The current offer on the table from the NBA is one that we cannot accept,” players’ association president Derek Fisher said. Instead, the players said they will ask for another meeting with owners before Stern’s Wednesday afternoon deadline — and sound willing to agree to a 50-50 split of revenues under the right circumstances — in an attempt to end the lockout and save the season. In an interview on NBA TV, Stern said that whether he agrees to meet “would be guided by the labor relations committee.” NBA spokesman Mike Bass
said the league has not yet heard from Hunter. A month of the season has already been lost, and the NBA risks losing fans without an agreement soon. Some already appear to have forgotten: Blake Griffin, last season’s rookie of the year, stood around in the lobby of a busy hotel off Broadway and was rarely approached by fans. The league’s current proposal calls for players to receive between 49 percent and 51 percent of basketball-related income, though union officials argue it would be nearly impossible to get above 50.2 percent. “The players are clearly of the mind that it’s an unacceptable proposal,” union executive director Billy Hunter said. “But because of their commitment to the game and their desire to play, they’re saying to us that we want you to go back, see if you can go
back, get a better deal.” If players don’t take the deal by 5 p.m. Wednesday, the next offer will call for salary rollbacks, a 53-47 revenue split in the owners’ favor and essentially a hard salary cap. “Our proposal on the table now goes away (Wednesday),” Stern said. “Our next proposal will then go to the players, and we will see where negotiations go.” Players are willing to negotiate further on the revenue split if they get some concessions on the salary cap system. Without them, Fisher said “we don’t see a way of getting a deal done between now and end of business” Wednesday. The league is seeking to limit the spending options of teams above the luxury tax threshold, believing that would lead to greater competitive balance. Players want all teams to be options for
free agents. When asked if there’s still wiggle room on system issues, Stern said that as of 3 a.m. Sunday there was none left. The players insisted they will not be forced into taking a bad deal by an ultimatum — though Stern refused to call it that. “The players are saying that we understand their position, but unfortunately we’re not intimidated by all that,” Hunter said. With more than 40 players ranging from All-Stars to minimum salary players behind them, Fisher and Hunter dismissed Stern’s warning, had hard words for Michael Jordan and repeated that they are willing to negotiate and believe they have made more than enough economic concessions to get the salary Please see NBA | 9A

Ole Miss starts it’s end with Nutt BY DAVID BRANDT The Associated Press
OXFORD — It was apparent quite quickly that this was not a normal Mississippi football practice. As players slowly made their way up the stairs and onto the practice field, employees loaded boxes into a car in the parking lot, the first signs that the beginning of the end of Houston Nutt’s tenure is here. In less than three weeks, Nutt will be gone. The fourth-year coach announced his resignation, effective at the end of the season, on Monday after the Rebels lost their 12th straight Southeastern Conference game. Now Ole Miss (2-7, 0-6 SEC) is stumbling down the stretch with a lame duck coach, youthful roster and questionable motivation. But Nutt said his team will be prepared for this weekend’s game against Louisiana Tech (5-4) and the two final conference games against LSU and Mississippi State, despite what will undoubtedly be a strange November. “It can be hard if you let it be hard,” Nutt said. “But I think our guys are professionals. We’ve got all our energy and all our thought into this game plan against Louisiana Tech because that’s our
job. That’s what we do.” Practice was eerily quiet on Tuesday afternoon, with muted chatter among the players and coaches as the team went through special teams drills. Junior defensive end Jason Jones said it’s disappointing to see one of the “greatest coaches in the game” lose his job. “Things happen — life happens,” Jones said. “That’s one of the things that coach Nutt has been talking to us about. Life happens. People get fired and hired all the team. People get let go. But he told us we just can’t flinch. Just keep going.” Nutt met with the players on Monday after his resignation was announced. He said it was a difficult afternoon, especially for the younger players who are suddenly without leadership. Though the Rebels have struggled, there’s a promising freshman class — led by receivers Nickolas Brassell and Donte Moncrief — that will likely be part of the foundation for whatever new coach is hired. “You could see that were hurt a little bit — a little unsure,” Nutt said. “It was a difficult day, but I thought they handled it well.” There’s also uncertainty
Mississippi assistant coach Keith Burns speaks about head coach Houston Nutt at a news conference Monday at the University of Mississippi in Oxford, Miss. Nutt will resign at the end of the season. for the Ole Miss assistant coaches, who will likely be looking for new employment soon. Gunter Brewer left an assistant coaching job at Oklahoma State in the offseason to join the Rebels as the passing game coordinator. He’s the son of former Ole Miss head coach Billy Brewer and grew up in Oxford, but his second stay in his hometown might be a short one unless the new coach wants to keep him around. “That’s part of the gig,”
Brewer said. “When you’re in the big leagues at the $100 table you expect the consequences.” The Rebels must push that disappointment aside quickly because Louisiana Tech will not be a pushover. The Bulldogs have won four straight games, and have scared several good teams in disappointing losses. Mississippi State needed overtime before beating Louisiana Tech 26-20. Houston and Southern Miss — two teams currently ranked in
the top 25 — beat Louisiana Tech by a combined three points. Even outside of the coaching upheaval, the Rebels have plenty of problems. Ole Miss ranks next to last in scoring offense in the SEC and dead last in scoring defense. Quarterback Randall Mackey, who showed promise in the middle of the season, has regressed in recent weeks and completed just 14 of 29 passes in last weekend’s 30-13 loss to
Kentucky. Opposing offensive players have won SEC Player of the Week honors four times in a row against the Ole Miss defense, including Kentucky freshman quarterback Maxwell Smith, who threw for 283 yards and two touchdowns against the Rebels in his first career start. Now there’s an imminent coaching change. Not exactly the formula for success, but defensive coordinator Tyrone Nix says no one’s giving up.
Los Angeles Lakers’ Derek Fisher (center) president of the NBA players’ association, and union executive director Billy Hunter (left) look on during a news conference on Tuesday in New York. NBA players are meeting to discuss whether to accept the league’s current proposal to end the lockout. Players have until Wednesday afternoon to take the deal.
NBA: The message was not just for the owners CONTINUED FROM 8A
cap system they want. That message was not just for the owners. They also were speaking to the players and agents who advocate disbanding the union in an attempt to take on the league in court. Union leaders said there was very little discussion about decertification, saying they understand there would be differences of opinion with a membership of 450, but that the team representatives summoned to New York knew the best interests of their teammates. The union called the meeting after Stern issued
his ultimatum early Sunday morning following an eight-hour bargaining session with a federal mediator. Fisher said 43 players, including superstars Carmelo Anthony and Griffin, attended the meeting and that 29 of the 30 teams were represented. Jordan provided perhaps the most memorable moment of the last lockout, chastising former Washington owner Abe Pollin that he should sell his team if he couldn’t make a profit without concessions from players. Jordan now owns the Charlotte Bobcats and is considered one of the hardliners who never wanted Stern to offer the
players a 50-50 split. “I would give him the advice that he gave to Abe Pollin,” Hunter said.

2011 CHASE CONTENDERS Chase Standings Following the AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway 1. Carl Edwards 2,316; Leader (finished second) He was able to keep smiling after losing to his closest challenger at Texas as he maintained the points lead, and he and Stewart were able to put considerable distance between themselves and the rest of the Chase field. 2. Tony Stewart -3 (finished first) Stewart proved at Texas that his boastful comments after winning Martinsville weren’t just idle talk. He went out and got maximum points at Texas, leading the most laps and winning the race to shave five points off Edwards’ lead. And he got his fourth win of the Chase by outrunning the points leader. Stewart said there’s no need to send any more spoken messages to Edwards. “I think our performance today spoke for itself,” he said. 3. Kevin Harvick -33 (finished 13th) His crew tried to use a two-tire pit stop late in the race to gain points, but the cards didn’t fall their way. “We gambled right there trying to steal a top-five [finish] and it didn’t work, so it probably cost us six or seven points,” crew chief Gil Martin said.
4. Matt Kenseth -38 (finished fourth) His No.17 Ford was good but not great,and he was unable to make up the points he lost in wrecking at Martinsville. “I thought we did everything we could possibly do, but we just weren’t fast enough,” he said.

Busch sidelined for 2 races after Friday night Truck Series crash
ack in the early days of 2010, when NASCAR officials announced that they were backing off of their policing of ontrack incidents, vice president Robin Pemberton summed up NASCAR’s then-new position by saying, “Boys, have at it.” NASCAR president Brian France also weighed in, saying NASCAR racing was a “contact sport.” While the statements made it clear that more aggression on the race track would be allowed, it was far from certain just how far that aggression could go before NASCAR did step in. The picture became a little clearer this past weekend at Texas Motor Speedway, when Kyle Busch was parked for the Nationwide and Sprint Cup races after intentionally wrecking championship contender Ron Hornaday Jr. under caution in the early laps of Friday’s Camping World Truck Series race. The crash knocked Hornaday out of title contention. It wasn’t the first time a driver had been barred from a Cup race over an incident in a lower series. In 2002, Kevin Harvick had to sit out a Cup race at Martinsville after a wreck in a truck race, and in 2007 Robby Gordon had to skip the Cup race at Pocono after an incident in a Nationwide race at Montreal. But Busch’s is the first punishment of this magnitude in the “have at it” era. Even before the latest of several incidents involving Busch, including one at Bristol involving Elliott Sadler and another at Darlington with Harvick, many a driver and fan have questioned just where the line is that a driver must cross to be severely punished. NASCAR president Mike Helton, in a press conference Saturday morning at Texas, said NASCAR looks at each situation and reacts accordingly. “The responsibility over the past two or three seasons we’ve given back to the drivers came, I think, with a very clear understanding that there could be a line that got crossed,” he
Kyle Busch watches from atop his team’s pit box as Michael McDowell drove his No. 18 Toyota in Sunday’s AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway. (NASCAR photo) said. “As annoying as the comments that I’ve made personally in the past about ‘we’ll know it when we see it’ might have been, we saw it [Friday] night.” Helton pointed out that there have been other similar incidents, such as the one last year at Atlanta Motor Speedway involving Carl Edwards and Brad Keselowski that drew penalties, although not as severe as the one imposed on Busch. And he said neither Busch’s on-track incidents at Bristol and Darlington nor Hornaday’s position in the truck championship battle were major reasons NASCAR reacted so strongly. “The question about the accumulation of incidents around the driver leading to this decision-making process, I won’t sit here and tell you that it’s not an influence, but it’s not an overriding influence,” Helton said. “The reaction we’re taking came more specifically
from the set of circumstances that unfolded [Friday] night in the single event.” Busch initially was unapologetic, but late Saturday issued a statement that indicated he was sorry for his actions. “I want to sincerely apologize for my actions during Friday night’s Truck Series race at Texas,” he said. “I apologize to my fans, all my sponsors, everyone at Joe Gibbs Racing and Kyle Busch Motorsports … I’d also like to apologize to Ron Hornaday Jr., and everyone associated with the No. 33 team in the Truck Series. “I understand why I was taken out of the car for the rest of the weekend. NASCAR officials had to act, and I accept their punishment and take full responsibility for my actions. “As a race-car driver, the hardest thing to do is to sit on the sidelines listening to cars on the track when you know you should be out there competing. For this, I have no one to blame but myself. “Through a lot of support from the people around me, I feel like I’ve made a lot of strides this year, but this was certainly a step backward. Moving forward, I will do everything I possibly can to represent everyone involved in a positive manner. However, I know my longterm actions will have more of a bearing than anything I say right now.” It was signed “Sincerely, Kyle Busch.” Busch, who could receive more punishment this week, met with his Cup team Sunday morning at Texas, apologized to his crew and asked to sit on the pit box during the race, according to his crew chief Dave Rogers. “I think Kyle handled [Sunday] like a professional,” Rogers told reporters. “It would have been much easier for him to get on an airplane and fly home and feel sorry for himself, and he didn’t. “He was obviously disappointed, but he stood there and he backed his race team from flag to flag, and I appreciate it.”
5. Brad Keselowski -49 (finished 24th) A collision with Denny Hamlin in the pit area and handling problems late in the race left him with a disappointing finish and all but out of the title hunt. Crew chief Paul Wolfe acknowledged the points situation and said he’s still proud of his team and what they’ve done this year. “We won’t lie down,” he said. 6. Jimmie Johnson -55 (finished 14th) He recovered from a late-race spin but not without some damage to his car.And it appears his run of five straight Sprint Cup titles is coming to an end.“It may have been the rear end or something because I didn’t really drive really good after that,” he said. “We were loose, but fast beforehand and then after the spin … that really hurt the car.” 7. Dale Earnhardt Jr. -79 (finished seventh) Despite a relatively good finish at Texas,he’s on the verge of elimination from the championship hunt. Barring a collapse by both Stewart and Edwards, he’ll be eliminated next week. 8. Jeff Gordon -81 (finished sixth) He overcame a bad pit stop to run in the top three late in the race, but faded a bit as nightfall took over Texas Motor Speedway. “When that sun went down it changed for us, and we just could not keep up with the track conditions and lost a little bit there at the end,” he said. 9. Kurt Busch -87 (finished 30th) His car was off the pace all day at Texas and a laterace fuel gamble didn’t work either. “We just missed it,” he said. “We started outside the top 10 and really never had the car to compete up front.” 10. Denny Hamlin -99 (finished 20th) A bad weekend left him mathematically out of the running for the championship with two races left to run. “”We just fought an ill-handling car all day,” he said.“It’s probably one of the worst that we’ve had in a long time.” 11. Kyle Busch -100 (did not compete) Parked for intentionally wrecking Ron Hornaday Jr. in Friday’s Camping World Truck Series race, Michael McDowell drove his No. 18 Toyota. McDowell finished 33rd, but Busch got no points. 12. Ryan Newman -103 (finished 16th) After losing two laps early in the race, he worked his way back to the front and led four laps before having to make a late-race stop for fuel.
Bayne gets first Nationwide win Ironically, just as one of NASCAR’s bad boys was sitting on the sidelines at Texas, a driver known for his exemplary behavior got his first career Nationwide Series victory. Trevor Bayne, who won this year’s Daytona 500 in just his second career Sprint Cup start, passed his Roush Fenway Racing teammate Carl Edwards with six laps remaining in the O’Reilly Auto Parts Challenge, then held off Denny Hamlin to get the victory at the same track where a year ago he made his Cup debut. “This is just as surreal as the 500,” Bayne said. “That’s hard to say but this has been so long. We’ve worked so hard to get our first Nationwide win, and I wasn’t sure if it was ever going to happen. I was thinking maybe the next Cup win would come first.” Bayne went on to say that Texas Motor Speedway is a special place for him. “It’s one of the toughest to drive, and that’s why I’ve always wanted to get a win at a place like this,” he said. “Daytona is great, but that’s restrictor-plate racing. I hate to say it, but a lot of people could be in Victory Lane there, but to win at a mile-and-a-half, that has been one of my dreams.” Edwards said he’s among those who admire Bayne and how he’s dealt with winning the Daytona 500, then being sidelined for much of this season with an illness. “I’m happy to see him have success, as happy as I can be as a competitor of his,” Edwards said. “I think that Trevor has been through a lot this year … To be as young as he is and to have so many changes in his life right now, and for him to handle everything as gracefully as he has, I think, says a lot about him.”

Martin to take Reutimann’s ride Mark Martin started his Sprint Cup career in a Pontiac, drove a Buick for a while, then ran an Oldsmobile and a Chevrolet before taking the wheel of a Ford. It was in a Ford, owned by Jack Roush, that Martin got the first of his 40 Cup victories, back in 1989 at Rockingham. The last five came in a Rick Hendrick-owned Chevrolet. Beginning next season Martin moves to a new manufacturer as he’ll spend the next two years running a partial Cup schedule in the No. 00 Toyota at Michael Waltrip Racing. Martin will run 25 races each year, with the team owner running five himself and other, as yet unnamed, drivers running the rest of the schedule. The move means that David Reutimann, the car’s
current driver, will be out of a ride. “It’s a bad time to be out of a job,” Reutimann told reporters at Texas. “You’ve just got to wonder if it’s worth it in the long run. I don’t know. The alternative is not doing it at all and that’s not a great alternative to have.”
Five-time Cup winner arrested Jeremy Mayfield, suspended from NASCAR in 2009 after failing a drug test, has been arrested on drug charges, and police say numerous stolen items, some allegedly taken during burglaries at NASCAR race shops, were found on his North Carolina property. Mayfield’s attorney told reporters that the fivetime Cup winner had no knowledge of the stolen property or the methamphetamine found when a search warrant was executed last week.

Voters defeat personhood prop BY EMILY WAGSTER PETTUS Associated Press
JACKSON â€” Mississippi voters Tuesday defeated a ballot initiative that wouldâ€™ve declared life begins at fertilization, a proposal that supporters sought in the Bible Belt state as a way to prompt a legal challenge to abortion rights nationwide. The so-called â€œpersonhoodâ€? initiative was rejected by more than 55 percent of voters, falling far short of the threshold needed for it to be enacted. If it had passed, it was virtually assured of drawing legal challenges because it conflicts with the Supreme Courtâ€™s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that established a legal right to abortion. Supporters of the initiative wanted to provoke a lawsuit to challenge the landmark ruling.
The measure divided the medical and religious communities and caused some of the most ardent abortion opponents, including Republican Gov. Haley Barbour, to waver with their support. Opponents said the measure would have made birth control, such as the morning-after pill or the intrauterine device, illegal. More specifically, the ballot measure called for abortion to be prohibited â€œfrom the moment of fertilizationâ€? â€” wording that opponents suggested would have deterred physicians from performing in vitro fertilization because they would fear criminal charges if an embryo doesnâ€™t survive. Supporters were trying to impose their religious beliefs on others by forcing women to carry unwanted pregnancies,
including those caused by rape or incest, opponents said. Amy Brunson voted against the measure, in part because she has been raped. She also has friends and family that had children through in vitro fertilization and she was worried this would end that process. â€œThe lines are so unclear on what may or may not happen. I think there are circumstances beyond everybodyâ€™s control that canâ€™t be regulated through an amendment,â€? said Brunson, a 36-year-old dog trainer and theater production assistant from Jackson. Hubert Hoover, a cabinet maker and construction worker, voted for the amendment. â€œI figure you canâ€™t be half for something, so if youâ€™re against abortion
you should be for this. Youâ€™ve either got to be wholly for something or wholly against it,â€? said Hoover, 71, who lives in a Jackson suburb. Mississippi already has tough abortion regulations and only one clinic where the procedures are performed, making it a fitting venue for a national movement to get abortion bans into state constitutions. Keith Mason, co-founder of the group Personhood USA, which pushed the Mississippi ballot measure, has said a win would send shockwaves around the country. The Colorado-based group is trying to put similar initiatives on 2012 ballots in Florida, Montana, Ohio and Oregon. Voters in Colorado rejected similar proposals in 2008 and 2010.
Voters approve eminent domain restrictions BY JACK ELLIOTT JR. Associated Press
JACKSON â€” Mississippi voters on Tuesday approved a constitutional amendment aimed at limiting governmentsâ€™ ability to seize property and hand it over to private developers. The ballot initiative on the power of eminent domain pitted landowner rights against economic development. Republican Gov. Haley Barbour, his economic development chief and many local officials opposed the amendment, which was pushed by the politically powerful Mississippi Farm Bureau Federation. The amendment seeks to prevent the taking of private land for private development. It keeps in place the stateâ€™s author-
ity to seize private land for public-use projects, such as streets or bridges. Leland Speed, leader of the Mississippi Development Authority, unsuccessfully sought to derail the amendment through the courts. The Mississippi Supreme Court ultimately decided it would consider a legal challenge if one is filed after Tuesdayâ€™s election. Barbour and Speed have contended that Nissan and Toyota wouldnâ€™t have come to Mississippi had eminent domain restraints been in place. The Farm Bureau contends homeowners and landowners deserve protection from the confiscation of their property under the guise of economic development for private companies.

Reeves, Hood win races BY JACK ELLIOTT JR. Associated Press
JACKSON — Republican Tate Reeves of Flowood handily won Tuesday as lieutenant governor of Mississippi. Reeves defeated Reform Party candidate Tracella Lou O’Hara Hill. Democrats did not field a candidate in the race. Reeves had been state treasurer for two terms. Hill, of Petal, spent only about $200 on her campaign. “We spent a lot of time traveling around Mississippi listening to what was on the mind of the people,” Reeves told The Associated Press. “It’s abundantly clear that jobs and the economy are what is on the minds of voters all across Mississippi. We are going to work for job creation — better and higher paying jobs for our people.” Reeves said it is not up to state government to create
jobs but rather to “create an environment which encourages the private sector to invest capital and create jobs.” Reeves said he will spend the next two months building a leadership team. Attorney General Jim Hood, the only incumbent Democrat statewide officeholder, won election to a third term. “I want to thank the people who us get re-elected and appreciate the voters confidence in what we are doing as attorney general,” Hood said. “We will continue doing the same things we have been doing and that’s fighting for the elderly, going after child predators and protecting the interests of those unable to take care of themselves.” Hood defeated Republican Steve Simpson, a former circuit judge and former head of the Department of Public Safety in the Gov.
Haley Barbour administration. Hood was district attorney in seven north Mississippi counties before winning the open office of attorney general in 2003. He grew up in the tiny community of Houlka in Chickasaw County and now lives in Brandon. He is the only Democrat in statewide elected office in Mississippi. Simpson, of Gulfport, worked for six years as an assistant district attorney in Harrison County before Democratic Gov. Ronnie Musgrove appointed him to a nonpartisan job as circuit judge in December 2000. Barbour appointed Simpson as public safety commissioner in April 2008, and Simpson stepped down in February to run for attorney general. Incumbent state Auditor Stacey Pickering defeated Reform Party candidate
Ashley Norwood to win reelection to a second term as Mississippi state auditor. Campaign finance reports showed Pickering, a Republican from Laurel, heavily outspent Norwood in his quest for re-election. Insurance Commissioner Mike Chaney won re-election. Chaney, a Republican from Vicksburg, defeated Democrat Louis Fondren of Gautier and Reform Party candidate Barbara Dale Washer of Hattiesburg. Chaney had counted among his achievements digitizing department records, updating the agency’s website, recruiting 140 new insurance companies to the state, completing a hurricane wind mitigation study, helping create a $20 million grant-based mitigation program for Gulf Coast homeowners and giving back policyholders more than $11 million.
Voters approve voter ID proposal BY JACK ELLIOTT JR. Associated Press
JACKSON — Mississippi voters on Tuesday approved a proposed constitutional amendment to require that voters present governmentissued identification at the polls. The issue has been debated at the Mississippi Legislature for 15 years. Republican Sen. Joey Fillingane of Sumrall with backing of the Mississippi GOP launched a petition drive that got the initiative on the ballot. The amendment seeks to require every person voting in Mississippi to show a driver’s license or other governmentissued photo ID at the polls. While supporters
called it commonsense legislation, opponents said it could be viewed by black citizens as an attempt to diminish minority voting. “It is unfortunate that as it relates to voting rights and access to the ballot box, Mississippi has gone backward,” said Derrick Johnson, president of the Mississippi NAACP. He said voter ID has not been shown to decrease incidents of voting fraud. Johnson said he believed that voter ID will result in an “increasing number of individuals being denied the right to vote.” Johnson said the NAACP has not decided whether it would mount a legal challenge to the initiative.

Landscape pavers, left, can be set into the ground to allow mower wheels to run over them, making a neat landscape edge that requires no trimming. These empty wine bottles, above, have been pushed in the ground upside-down, where the green and clear glass colors add variety.
Gardening on the edge Edging makes landscape beds pretty, easy to keep From railroad ties and landscape timbers to rolls of plastic and metal edging, nothing adds interest to the landscape quite like nice, crisp bed lines. We have all seen and used Southern m a n y Gardening types of landscape Gary R. edging Bachman materials. But why not be a little creative? To get you started, here are some ideas for landscape bed lines between walkways and flowerbeds. Vintage dinner plates placed in the ground on their edge create a bright garden bed edge. Get some from your local thrift store or stop at yard sales and buy chipped and mismatched plates. A couple friends of mine enjoy collecting quality wines from around the country. They push the empty wine bottles in the ground upside-down for a unique edge. The green and clear glass creates a nice variation of natural colors. Small ferns have started growing in the clear bottles, adding uniqueness to the landscape bed line. Remember that whenever you use a material that creates a hard vertical edge, you need to clean the edge up. And if the edging is breakable, such as the examples I’ve described, trimming may be difficult. I don’t like to use a weed eater, and I have a couple different strategies that work well for keeping bed lines clean. The first and perhaps easiest is to cut in your bed lines. Use a sharp, square-edged garden spade to cut straight into the ground along the bed line. Then make a 45 degree cut from the bed toward the first cut. The small trench that results will hold your mulch and creates a very nice line between a grassy area and the landscape bed. The other method is to use landscape pavers to create a space for your mower wheels to run over as you mow your lawn. This method requires more work, as the bed line must be dug out so the tops of the pavers are ground level. Placed end-to-end, the pavers create a nice, thin ribbon that forms a crisp bed line. I find it a bit difficult to keep my mower wheels on such a narrow bed line, though, so I prefer pavers laid side-by-side. This way, they provide an 8-inch edge and add a sense of formality to the landscape.

The green and clear glass creates a nice variation of natural colors. Small ferns have started growing in the clear bottles, adding uniqueness to the landscape bed line. The pavers can simply be set in soil at ground level, but if you do this, they can move around and get dislodged. I set my pavers in mortar mix to create a stable surface for my mower wheels. Properly edging your landscape beds not only looks sharp, but it also makes maintaining your landscape easier.
