Business rolls out red carpet for good cause




Shelter board gives update By Jebb Johnston

The animal shelter has seen more than 600 dogs and cats during the past four months of operation under its new managing board. The Corinth Board of Aldermen received an update on operations of the Corinth-Alcorn Animal Shelter on Tuesday. “We have averaged approxi-

mately 85 dogs and 58 cats delivered to the shelter per month, either through owner surrender or animal control,” said Charlotte Doehner, representing the shelter. Working with seven other rescue groups, the organization had a 45 percent adoption rate in November, compared to a typical average of 18 to 22 percent among animal shelters, she

said. Since Aug. 1, the shelter has cared for more than 350 dogs and 250 cats. As building improvements move forward, “Community volunteers are continuing to work at the shelter to keep our payroll costs low,” said Doehner. Building improvements have included repair of all roof leaks, fencing repairs and increased

number of runs, replacement of broken windows, placement of tarps to protect the runs, replacement of defective gas heaters and repair of the water heater, lighting improvements and general cleaning and painting inside the building. The organization is awaiting its tax exempt status. Please see SHELTER | 3A

Salmonella count rises to 22 cases By Bobby J. Smith

As an investigation by the state health department continues, hospital officials have confirmed more new cases of salmonella. On Thursday afternoon a spokesperson from Magnolia Regional Health Center said the hospital has treated a total

of 22 confirmed cases of salmonella, with results pending for eight more patients. None of the patients treated for food poisoning were in critical condition, said Tracy Moore, executive assistant to CEO at Magnolia. The Mississippi State Department of Health had no new details to release on Thursday,

although a spokesperson said the state health office would soon release more information as its investigation continued. The state health department began its investigation after learning that the local emergency room had several people coming in with gastrointestinal illnesses. Once they were notified, of-

ficials at the Mississippi State Department of Health began an investigation focused on interviewing the patients to find out what foods they’d eaten and the patients’ recent activities. The state health department’s ongoing investigaPlease see POISON | 3A

‘Scrooge & Marley’ lifts holiday spirits By Bobby J. Smith

The local theatre group is drumming up some Christmas spirits. Corinth Theatre-Arts’ production of “A Christmas Carol: Scrooge & Marley” opens tonight at the Crossroads Playhouse. Playwright Israel Horovitz’s stage adaptation of Charles Dickens’ beloved Christmas story puts a new spin on a timeless tale. “It’s the story of miser Scrooge and how he’s visited by three spirits who show him the error of his ways — his concern with money instead of people,” explained CT-A Board President and acting director Linda Dixon. “Marley, Scrooge’s business partner, plays a much larger role in this particular version. He’s the one who basically sets up the visit by the spirits to save Scrooge from the same eternal fate he’s facing, because he has

Holly Baptist offers ‘One Bethlehem Night’

A downtown boutique is rolling out the red carpet for its customers as it works to raise money for a good cause. Red Carpet with a Cause will be held Saturday at Lipchic Boutique in downtown Corinth. All proceeds from the secondannual event will go to Nathan’s Journey, a program that raises money for Nathan, a local teenager with special needs. “We lay out the red carpet to show our appreciation for our customers,” said Lipchic owner Brenda Barbour. “We get all dressed up for them and always have cool specials.” In its first year the Red Carpet day included an hourly giveaway of items and gift certificates. For the 2011 event the store’s owners have organized a silent auction featuring items donated by local vendors, with all money raised going to Nathan’s Journey. Silent auction participants will have the opportunity to bid on a wide variety of items, including a football personally autographed by Nick Saban, the head coach of the University of Alabama Crimson Tide. During the event, Lipchic’s staff will be decked out in a glamorous array of formalwear as they honor the store’s cus-

Guys officials optimistic on post office fate BY JEFF YORK For the Daily Corinthian

GUYS, Tenn. — The outlook is brighter for keeping the town’s post office in Guys open after fears the office would be closed by the U.S. Postal Service at the end of the year. Guys town officials learned earlier this year that their post office was on the list to be closed as part of a cost-cutting measure by the Postal Service. The USPS issued a 60-day notice in early November that the Guys Post Office would be shut down by the end of December. A positive turnout at a

“We really had a good meeting and I believe that helped our chances.” Keith Rinehart Mayor public meeting with a representative from the Postal Service is believed to have made a difference in possibly closing the Guys Post Office. “We really had a good meeting and I believe that helped our chances of keeping our post office open,” said Guys Mayor Keith Rinehart. “We understand the Postal Ser-

vice is having financial issues, but want to keep our post office.” Rinehart said he felt that a lot of small towns would be hurt by the closure of their post offices as a way for the Postal Service tried to cut their losses. The Postal Service does not receive tax money and works independent

of government, but Congress can control some parts of the USPS operations. It is expected the Postal Service will have a loss of $14.1 billion in 2012 because the volume of first class mail continues to fall. The USPS will close 252 mail processing centers beginning in March and that will slow the delivery of first class mail. This will basically eliminate next-day delivery of first-class mail as the Postal Service looks for ways to cut costs and reduce their deficit.

ference center. “We will have a variety, and lots of unique things for sale,” explained Leah Giesler, the administrative assistant for the Hardin County Chamber of Commerce. “Everything is usually under $20. Some things may be higher, but it’s a great time to Christmas shop for unique items.” Around 60 vendors selected from a waiting list that was started almost a year ago will offer their wares at the Holiday Mart. “Everyone wants in on this show. If we had 10

times more space we’d fill it up because the waiting list is so long,” Giesler said. From 6 until 9 p.m. visitors will have the opportunity to tour the park and view the extensive display of Christmas lights on free horsedrawn carriage and trolley rides. For the little ones, there will be a train ride to Santa’s house.

Saturday Christmas in the Park’s second day will begin with a breakfast with Santa from 7 until 10 a.m. in the dining room of the Pickwick Landing State Park Inn.

The Holiday Mart begins earlier on Saturday. Vendors will be open for business from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. The second day’s evening activity for kids will be an hour of bedtime stories with Santa Claus and his elves, starting at 8 p.m. in front of the inn’s fireplace. Carriage and trolley rides will be offered again on Saturday from 6 until 9 p.m. The park is offering a special holiday package for $80 per couple including one night’s lodging for two with no extra charge for children under age 16; breakfast for two

in the dining room; and a holiday treat basket waiting in the room. Pickwick Landing State Park is located just south of Pickwick Dam in Hardin County, Tenn., 12 miles south of Savannah. Park accommodations include a modern inn and restaurant, cabins, camping areas, and a golf course — all on 1,400 acres of forested hills and hollows. Call 1-800-2508615 for reservations.

and fears that people have today before becoming a believer,” said Harrison. “He — like everyone else — realizes that something special happened that

night.” Harrison said the musical drama has some comical scenes along with several power plots where it gets serious. “It turns to serious drama the last 15 minutes,”

said the director of the hour-long production. Shane Williamson and Shelbi Barnes will play the parts of Joseph and Mary. Myles Emerson is portraying the Baby Jesus.

“This is something I enjoy doing and have done it a lot of years,” said Harrison. This is the second consecutive year the church has produced “One Bethlehem Night.”

tion also involves taking food samples from local restaurants. Their communications director declined to name the specific Corinth restaurants

involved in the investigation. Corinth’s Don Julio Mexican Restaurant remained closed Thursday, after locking its doors on Tuesday. A note taped to the front door said the

management decided to close the restaurant due to reports of contaminated vegetables it had received from suppliers. The note explained that the restaurant had been inspected by health

officials and no evidence of contamination was found. The restaurant was not ordered to close, the note stated, but was closing for the safety of its customers while test results were pending.

SHELTER: Organization plans to have building completed by spring CONTINUED FROM 1A

“We have established guidelines for our organization to ensure that any equipment purchased by us for the shelter will be the property of the shelter and cannot be removed in

the event that we no longer manage the facility,” said Doehner. With a $3,000 grant resulting from a visit by members of the state and national humane society, the shelter will add two additional banks of cages.

“This will enable us to house 18 additional small breed dogs and puppies inside during extreme weather,” she said. The shelter aims to complete its new building by spring and has begun a building fund.

Funds raised through October included adoptions, $2,908.41; donations, $4,638; hot dogs fund-raiser, $1,122; and intake fees, $675. A retired nurse, Katrina Vastlik, has joined the shelter board.

Letter to the Editor Being designated driver is perfect holiday gift To the editor: If you are still looking for the perfect present this holiday season for an adult friend or family member, consider gifting yourself as a designated driver. What better way to tell others you care about them than helping them get home safely from a holiday celebration or night on the town. If you do, you won’t be alone. More than 141 million American adults have been a designated driver or been driven home by one, according to a projection based upon a 2011 survey conducted by GfK Custom Research North America. Now that’s a reason to celebrate. If you planning on hosting a holiday party for adults, remember these tips to help have a safe celebration: ■ Serve food with your alcohol beverages and encourage your guests to space drinks throughout the night; ■ Offer non-alcohol beverages for the designated drivers; ■ Don’t refresh drinks as people can easily loose track of how much they’ve had; and, ■ Stop serving alcohol one hour before the party ends. A&B Distributing Company and AnheuserBusch encourage adults who choose to drink to do so responsibly and to use a designated driver or alternate transportation if they may have had too much to drink. Thanks to efforts like these and increased law enforcement, our nation is making progress in the fight against drunk driving. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, drunk-driving fatalities have declined to a record-low level, down 49 percent since 1982. We hope you have a great holiday and remember, it’s our collective responsibility to keep our roads safe. Joan Lunsford Consumer Awareness & Education A&B Distributing Company

Worth Quoting Nothing so conclusively proves a man’s ability to lead others as what he does from day to day to lead himself. — Thomas J. Watson

Prayer for today As Jesus taught us, we pray, “Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil; for thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.”

is the latest and perhaps the most devastating -- and painfully relevant to our current president. Economist and columnist Walter Williams’ new book this year is “Race and Economics.” You don’t need to know any economics to read it, but you will know some after you do. If you believe that things like minimum wage laws or government regulations in general help low-income minorities, you will find it hard to keep believing that after this book bombards you with hard facts and hard data, going back for decades. Ann Coulter’s new book this year, “Demonic,” is in the tradition of her other books with one-word titles, a blend of very sharp wit and thoroughly researched facts. It will delight Ann Coulter’s fans and may cause those few liberals who read it to be at risk for apoplexy. Although “Demonic” was published before the “Occupy Wall Street” movement got under way, its subtitle was prophetic: “How the Liberal Mob is Endangering America.” Its theme is how mob thinking and mob actions have long been common on the left, whether in academia, the media or the streets. One chapter is titled, “You Can Lead a Mob to Water, But You Can’t

Make It Think.” Another writer whose series of books likewise blend wit and wisdom is Theodore Dalrymple, a British doctor who has lived in various countries around the world. His latest book this year is titled “Anything Goes,” and its theme is the degeneration of Western culture, to the accompaniment of unthinking rhetoric. My all-time favorite among Theodore Dalrymple’s books is “Life at the Bottom.” It is based on his chilling experiences working in a low-income, predominantly white neighborhood in Britain. It is a classic examination of the moral squalor produced by the welfare state and its ideological rhetoric, regardless of race. My own new books this year include “The Thomas Sowell Reader,” which has more than 400 pages of selections of my writings over the past decades, ranging from the humorous to the painfully serious. The 4th edition of my “Basic Economics” and the 2nd edition of my “Economic Facts and Fallacies” were also published this year. Merry Christmas.

you make promises to the American people?” It’s not a trick question, but one that goes to the core of an individual’s values and character. What is marriage? Is it something for the convenience of the U.S. Post Office for orderly mail delivery, or is there a Higher Authority behind it? For most people, marriage is a sacrament with “rules” firmly established by God and when followed these rules benefit married couples, their children and society. Among the main requirements of marriage is fidelity. “Forsaking all others” is the phrase contained in the Christian marriage vow. Divorce has become widely accepted (though not to the Author of marriage) as a sometimes “necessary evil,” but adultery remains for most people what it has always been: a betrayal. It’s not just a religious concept. Ask a person who is married but does not believe in God how he or she would feel about a cheating spouse and you most likely would get the same response you would receive from one who does believe in a higher power: anger

and profound disappointment. In The Washington Post’s “Reliable Sources” column last week, Roxanne Roberts and Amy Argetsinger asked, “Is an affair still the kiss of death?” That they have to ask the question is another indicator of falling standards. Once, divorce was a political “kiss of death.” Now we are debating whether adultery should carry a similar penalty. One shudders to think what might be next. Ultimately, what voters must decide is this: Does a presidential candidate’s personal flaws rise (or fall) to a level that inhibits his ability to do the job of president? Put another way, if you are about to have surgery, do you care if the doctor is a cad, or do you care more whether most of his patients are alive and well? With the multiple challenges Americans face and with the choices presented to us, if the country is to be made well, voters may just have to sacrifice the ideal for the pragmatic.

State Former official charged with fraud FBI investigating BY HOLBROOK MOHR Associated Press

JACKSON — A former Mississippi county road manager and his wife have been indicted on two federal charges of Hurricane Katrina fraud in what authorities describe as a kickback scheme. Roger Ladner was road manager for Hancock County on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, home to quiet beach towns like Bay. St. Louis and Waveland and

hit hard by the killer storm on Aug. 29, 2005. Ladner, 55, and his wife, Sharon, 52, were indicted Tuesday and each charged with money laundering and conspiracy. Arraignment was set for Monday morning in U.S. District Court in Gulfport before Magistrate Judge Robert H. Walker. The couple’s lawyers, Peter and William Barrett, said in a statement posted on the firm’s website that the Ladners want to “clear

their good names.� “The indictment returned on Tuesday by the grand jury is nothing more than an accusation — it is not evidence of any wrongdoing by Roger and Sharon Ladner. Roger and Sharon are confident in their innocence; they believe in the American justice system and they look forward to the trial of these charges and the opportunity to clear their good names,� the statement said. Prosecutors say Ladner

was given the authority to award millions of dollars in ditch-cleaning contracts and some of the contracts went to his relatives with a portion of the money funneled back to him and his wife. The nine-page indictment said the Ladners used third parties “to conceal the fact that they and their companies worked on the county ditch cleaning contracts� and funneled the proceeds “to various persons and accounts.�

Man faces charge in alleged Texas hay scam Associated Press

CRYSTAL SPRINGS — A Wesson, Miss., man has been charged with selling hay over the Internet. Authorities say the problem is James Darin Hoffman had no hay. Copiah County chief investigator Milton Twiner told The Clarion-Ledger that Hoffman was freed

on $50,000 shortly after his arrest on Nov. 29. Twiner said Hoffman allegedly been selling hay to farmers in Texas through a website called The Hay Barn. The site calls itself a “classified ad site for hay, hay equipment, and haying services.� Twiner said the Texas

area was an easy target as it is under a state of emergency because of the ongoing drought. Grimes County, Texas, investigator Jimmy Armatys said farmers are frantically trying to figure out how to keep their animals fed. “There’s just no hay here,� he said. “They’ll

pretty much buy anything they can get their hands on. People are taking ads out in the paper. They’re desperate.� Twiner said during September and October, Hoffman advertised for hay and the farmers would send him money. They bought hay that never arrived.

Southhaven mayor BY HOLBROOK MOHR Associated Press

JACKSON — The FBI confirmed Wednesday that it is investigating the mayor of Mississippi’s third largest city who was already ordered by state officials to pay more than $170,000 for travel, stress counseling and other personal expenses billed to taxpayers. Southaven Mayor Greg Davis had already come under scrutiny after Mississippi Auditor Stacey Pickering announced Nov. 2 that a seven-month investigation revealed improper billings for such things as a personal trip to Key West, Fla. Pickering demanded for Davis to repay $153,589 for expenses, $16,822 for interest and $13,571 for investigative costs. Now the focus of the investigation has possi-

Study: More drivers are texting at wheel BY JOAN LOWY Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Texting while driving increased 50 percent last year despite a rush by states to ban the practice, federal safety officials said Thursday. Two out of 10 drivers say they’ve sent messages from behind the wheel — and that spikes much higher among young adults. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration takes an annual snapshot of drivers’ behavior by staking out selected stoplights and intersections to count people using cellphones and hand-held Web devices that allow them to text, view directions, check emails, surf the Internet, or play games. At

any given time, just under 1 percent of drivers were texting or manipulating handheld devices. The activity increased to 0.9 percent of drivers in 2010, up from 0.6 percent the year before. In a separate telephone survey of drivers, 18 percent said they’ve sent texts or emails while at the wheel. That number jumps to half among younger drivers, ages 21 to 24. The survey also found that most drivers will answer a cellphone call while driving and most will continue to drive while they talk. NHTSA surveyed 6,000 drivers ages 18 or older in the national poll conducted a year ago and released Thursday. “What’s clear from all of

the information we have is that driver distraction continues to be a major problem,” NHTSA Administrator David Strickland said. The increase in texting while driving came even though many states have banned the practice. Last month, Pennsylvania became the 35th state to forbid it. Jonathan Adkins, a spokesman for the Governors Highway Safety Association, said the increase is alarming. “It is clear that educational messages alone aren’t going to change their behavior,” Adkins said. “Rather, good laws with strong enforcement are what is needed. Many drivers won’t stop texting until they fear getting a ticket.”

The family of Fabon Follin would like to thank everyone for their kindness after the accident and death of our dad. We especially thank the nursing staff at Magnolia Regional Hospital, Cray & Patsy Franks, Reverend Mickey Trammel, Jim Johnson, & Dr. Carl Welch. Our dad would be proud that Follin Plumbing & Electrical Service continues in business. Fabon’s grandson, Ryan has worked with his grandfather over the past two years and virtually grew up in the business. So the next generation is moving forward and looking forward to another generation of quality work.

How developed stock markets have done in 2011 Ireland


How emerging stock markets have done in 2011

Look whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best



This may come as a surprise: The U.S. stock market has been one of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best in 2011. The job market is weak and many investors have lost faith in the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to help the economy. But other countries have bigger problems. The S&P 500 is down 2 percent this year. Stock indexes in Europe and emerging markets like China and Brazil are down by double digits. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why: â&#x20AC;˘ The debt crisis in Europe. Many investors believe that the inability of countries like Greece and Italy to handle their debt will lead to a recession. â&#x20AC;˘ The economies of emerging markets are slowing. The economies of China, India and other countries are growing faster than those in developed countries like the U.S. But investors are concerned that growth will slow because governments have raised interest rates to try to control inflation. Indiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy will grow 7.8 percent this year, down from 10 percent in 2010, according to the International Monetary Fund. The stocks of Indonesia and Ireland have gone against the trend. Both are up. The reasons why: â&#x20AC;˘ Indonesia is thriving. Indonesia is an emerging market whose economic growth is accelerating. The IMF says the economy will grow 6.4 percent this year. Last year, it grew 6.1 percent. â&#x20AC;˘ Ireland is healthier after a bailout last year. Investors have been pleased by steps it has taken to stay financially sound. The government has announced new taxes and cut spending.

First look at consumers in December

A reading on trade

The preliminary Thomson Reuters/University of Michigan consumer sentiment index for December will give a first reading on how consumers are feeling in the early days of the holiday season.

The Chinese economy Chinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s government releases reports on inflation, retail sales and factory production for November. The numbers are expected to show whether Chinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy continues to moderate. Inflation is a particular concern because the government has raised interest rates to stop it from surging. In October, inflation at the consumer level fell to 5.5 percent from 6.1 percent in September. Milder increases in food prices were behind the drop.

CHS takes different approach BY H. LEE SMITH

In lieu of wearing pink during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Corinth football team opted to collect money. On Nov. 29, The West Clinic located at Magnolia Cancer Center was presented with a $118.21 donation. “They probably do not realize how much this will help many of our patients,” stated Martha King, Site Director Corinth. “Some need money for gas to get to their doctors’ appointments, others need

snacks since some treatments last all day.” While pink was the theme across various high school, college and professional football gridirons, Corinth Head Coach Jimmy Mitchell conjured up a different idea. “I told the team ‘why spend money for pink accessories when we can give money straight to our clinic here,’” said Mitchell, noting the price for pink socks and receiver gloves wasn’t cheap. Mitchell also saw the gesture as a way to keep the focus on those affected by breast

cancer, not the individual players. “The attention is secondary,” said Mitchell. “Instead of decorating themselves, they could help someone locally.” According to national breast cancer website, women in the United States get breast cancer more than any other type of cancer except for skin cancer. It is second only to lung cancer as a cause of cancer death in women. The site also states that each year it is estimated that nearly 200,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and

more than 40,000 will die. Approximately 1,700 men will also be diagnosed with breast cancer and 450 will die each year. King was pleased to see something positive for a change. “Most of the time when you pick up the paper or turn on the TV you see and hear so much negativity that I think we should embrace all the positive things going on around us,” she said.

Tonight, Biggersville will host Pine Grove for the BHS basketball wing’s third Division 1-1A matchup, an opportunity for both Lion squads to get back on track after a sweep by Alcorn Central. The loss to ACHS ended a four-win run for the Lions and sunk the Ladies to a 5-3 mark. As the third division

since losing to Booneville 5843 on Nov. 15. ACHS handed them their second highest point-spread loss, as the BHS girls shot a lowly 12-of-44 on field goals and 12-of-31 from the free throw line. It was an uncharacteristic loss overall for BHS. Point guard Tyler Shelley averages 18.25 points per game on a season high of 146, including seven treys, plus a game-high record of 27 during the Lady Lions’ first divi-

sion matchup against Jumpertown. Shelley has broken the 20 mark in two other games, the season-opener against TCPS and a game three loss against Booneville. The Lions have even less excuse for ending their fourgame winning streak last Saturday on a 71-65 loss. Power forward Dexter Stafford has scored in the double Please see BHS | 9A

Larry Fedora’s departure leaves USM in limbo The Associated Press

HATTIESBURG — Less than a week after Southern Miss won its first Conference USA title since 2003, the program is looking for a new football coach. North Carolina said Thursday that it will hire Larry Fedora away from the Golden Eagles as its new head coach, pending final approval by the school’s trustees Friday morning. UNC has scheduled a news conference in Chapel Hill that afternoon. “It’s a situation I’m extremely excited about,” Fe-

dora said on Thursday after a meeting at Southern Miss. “The University of North Carolina has a national brand and I think they’re hungry to win championships.” In a statement, North Carolina athletic director Bubba Cunningham said interim coach Everett Withers would coach the Tar Heels in the Independence Bowl. It’s unclear what Withers’ responsibilities will be after the bowl game. Fedora said it was too early to make any staff decisions. Fedora met with Southern

Miss players and coaches on Thursday where he revealed he was leaving for North Carolina, but will coach the 22nd-ranked Golden Eagles in the Dec. 24 Hawaii Bowl against Nevada. “We want to see this thing through,” Fedora said. “We want to finish this thing. This could be only team in 100 years of football that wins 12 games. We want to get that 12th win.” Fedora, 49, has a 33-19 record in four years with Southern Miss. The Golden Eagles just finished arguably

the best regular season in school history, with an 11-2 record and Conference USA title after easily beating No. 7 Houston 49-28 in the championship game. Before coming to Southern Miss, Fedora was the offensive coordinator at Oklahoma State and Florida. Southern Miss offensive lineman Joe Duhon said players were disappointed by Fedora’s decision, but there were no hard feelings. “Southern Miss is SouthPlease see FEDORA | 9A

Pujols, Angels reach $254 million, 10-year deal BY RONALD BLUM The Associated Press

matchup and the first meet against Pine Grove, both units have an opportunity to expand on a 2-0 division streak. It will be the second home game for the Lady Lions since hosting Tupelo Christian Prep (TCPS) to open their season, and this will be the first time the men welcome the opposition at BHS Gymnasium. Last week the Lady Lions gave their poorest showing

DALLAS — Albert Pujols could have been a wealthy Cardinal for life, planning for the day his statue would be erected outside Busch Stadium next to those of Stan Musial, Bob Gibson and the other St. Louis greats. Instead, exactly six weeks after leading the Cardinals to a second title in one of the most thrilling World Series ever, he decided to accept the second-highest contract in baseball history for a new future in southern California with the Los Angeles Angels. The three-time NL MVP agreed Thursday to a $254 million, 10-year contract with the Angels, leaving behind a heartbroken fan base

by jilting one of the sport’s traditional teams for an expansion club with only one championship in its halfcentury. For baseball, it was a virtually unprecedented move. Many top stars have changed teams in their careers, from Babe Ruth to Willie Mays to Barry Bonds. But this is perhaps the best player in the game over the past decade, exiting shortly after one of the great postseason power shows. A big and burly offensive force with a shaved head, the nine-time All-Star has a room full of honors, winning the 2001 NL Rookie of the Year award, NL MVPs in 2005, 2008 and 2009, a batting title in 2003 and a pair

of Gold Gloves at first base. Who would have predicted that when the Cardinals selected him in the 13th round of the 1999 amateur draft with the 402nd overall selection? And now, he’s going West. As his deal fell into place on the final day of the winter meetings, the Angels struck another big agreement, a $77.5 million, five-year contract with left-hander C.J. Wilson, the ace whose Texas Rangers lost to the Cardinals in the seven-game World Series. “This is obviously the moment where we have thrown our hat in the ring,” new Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto said. Had he stayed in St. Lou-

is before packed, adoring crowds, Pujols would’ve established a Cal Ripken-like legacy of loyalty, a rare modern star who remained with a franchise from first at-bat to final swing. Instead, some of his former fans will see him as a sellout. Pujols rejected a multiyear extension last offseason that was said to include a small percentage of the franchise and cut off negotiations a day before he arrived at spring training. St. Louis also offered the slugger a 10-year deal that chairman Bill DeWitt Jr. said was in excess of $200 million. “I would like our fans to know that we tried our best Please see PUJOLS | 9A

BHS: Clubs looking to rebound CONTINUED FROM 8A

digits all seven games this season, commanding the post position for an average of 20 points per game on a blistering 141 season total. Even in defeat, Stafford led the Lions in their ACHS loss with a total of 13 rebounds, six on offense and seven on defense. Meanwhile the Ladies boast late starter Jada Tubbs, who entered the season against Booneville to now rank third at 53 points behind Shelley. Tubbs shot for 17 points against Wheeler in the team’s second division win, and despite the loss to ACHS -- meanwhile catching heat from Coach Cassie Farris for a damaging five turnovers -Tubbs led the team for a total of nine rebounds, six on offense. Add to that the towering center Dana Thompson, who’s pulling in second at 58 this season -- she led the defense with a total of eight rebounds and three blocked shots against the Golden Bears -- and there’s no shortage of scorers and defenders at BHS. Equally on the men’s front, you’ll find shooting guard and small forward Blake Anderson trailing Stafford with 66 points this season, meanwhile Anderson leads the Lions on triples -- a total of 12. Mix in the added bonus of Tevin Watson pulling an easy third at 58 points and 10 treys, while point guard Daniel Simmons follows fourth at 46, and the ingredients for victory are there. Only the bread didn’t rise in the heat of Alcorn Central’s oven. Will it be hot enough tonight at the BHS Gymnasium? Back on the Ladies front, starters Chloe Henson and Savannah Davis

are pulling in the fourth and fifth spots on scoring for their season, at 45 and 40 respectively, yet as a team the Lady Lions have split the regular season at 3-3. A strong showing so far in their division might lend them another success, but not with the kind of inaccuracy they displayed last weekend. As for the Lions, their worst showing was that first loss in Booneville, where they scored a meager 33 on a current average of 73 points per game. But then they bounced back for a four-win streak, which started with an 8575 win over Jumpertown followed by two games where they broke 90 on scoring. The Lions average margin of victory over that four-win streak was 22.75, and so far they’ve towered over their division opponents by an ample 27.5, despite going 3-2 in the regular season. So what are the lessons and the outlook for the men’s unit? BHS Head Coach Cliff Little said the team learned a lot from the recent loss to ACHS, and the past week has been an intense period of practice and preparation for the next division game. “For one, this is our first home game, and all the players are really excited about that,” he said. “But Pine Grove will play you real hard, and they’re a pretty scrappy bunch. Coach (Brad) Pounders does a good job with those boys. “So this week we talked about speeding things up on the court,” added Little. “We need to get faster on the floor, be more proactive on offense, and do a better job of attacking the basket and blocking out on defense. We have to get better at stopping the opposition, especially if they guard Stafford as heavily as Alcorn did.

FEDORA: ‘I understand his decision and still really respect him as a coach and mentor’ CONTINUED FROM 8A

ern Miss — we’re going to continue to win with or without” Fedora, Duhon said. “I understand his decision and still really respect him as a coach and mentor.” Fedora said Southern Miss made a “huge push” financially during the negotiations with North Carolina, “but there was more to it than just that.” Fedora made a salary of $704,500 last season according to USA Today. North Carolina’s board of trustees met Thursday morning to discuss “a personnel matter” for about an hour in closed session. Later, the board of governors for the 16-campus UNC public system also met for about an hour in closed session to review certain provisions of a deal. The school hasn’t released contract terms. After the second meeting, board members congratulated Cunningham and UNC chancellor Holden Thorp as they left. Thorp declined to com-

ment to reporters as he walked out, smiling and saying only, “See you tomorrow.” Cunningham thanked Withers, who was promoted from defensive coordinator to interim coach after Thorp fired Butch Davis shortly before training camp after an NCAA investigation into the program. Withers’ promotion came under former athletic director Dick Baddour. “He and his staff provided exemplary leadership under trying circumstances and I am glad they were rewarded with an opportunity to play in a bowl game,” Cunningham said in the statement. While North Carolina is celebrating a new coaching hire, Southern Miss begins its search. Southern Miss offensive lineman Austin Quattrochi said he hoped the new coach would be someone from the current staff. Offensive coordinator Blake Anderson is a likely candidate, though the Golden Eagles are also expected to look at outside candidates as well.

PUJOLS: ‘I think baseball needs to have s steroid-testing policy for owners’ CONTINUED FROM 8A

to make Albert a lifetime Cardinal,” he said in a statement, adding later in a telephone interview: “They were substantially higher than our bid.” In St. Louis, Pujols has accomplished so much that he would have been beloved no matter his future performance. But in Anaheim, he will have to prove himself anew. “I think his body’s going to start breaking down and he’s not going to be good for 10 years,” said Katie Coyle, fitness coordinator at the Webster-Kirkwood YMCA in Missouri, a diehard fan who wore team colors to work during the playoffs. “I think he’s going to regret leaving here. If he’d have stayed here and signed a long-term deal with the Cardinals, they’d have had compassion for him because they’ve seen him at his best.” Pujols’ contract, which like Wilson’s is subject to a physical, is only the third to break the $200 million barrier, following Alex Rodriguez’s $252 million, 10-year deal with Texas before the 2001 season and A-Rod’s $275 million, 10-

year agreement with the Yankees before the 2008 season. “This is a monumental day for Angel fans and I could not be more excited,” said owner Arte Moreno, who bought the team for $184 million from The Walt Disney Co. in 2003, a year after its only title. Despite a top-four payroll this year, the Angels languished to a secondplace finish behind Texas in the AL West. They spent $331.5 million on just two players, capping an unusual winter meetings in which the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox watched while the Angels and Miami Marlins spent as if they were the sport’s financial elite. Moving into a new ballpark next season, the Marlins failed to reel in Pujols but acquired All-Star closer Heath Bell, All-Star shortstop Jose Reyes and left-hander Mark Buehrle for $191 million, meaning the two clubs committed $522.5 million to just five free agents. “I think baseball needs to have a steroid-testing policy for owners,” said Andrew Zimbalist, a sports economics professor at

Smith College. At the very same hotel 11 years earlier, teams spent $738.95 million on 24 free agents and none of the three big deals worked out as planned. Rodriguez, Manny Ramirez ($160 million over eight years with Boston) and Mike Hampton ($121 million over eight years with Colorado) all were traded during their contracts. Pujols became the first player to hit 30 home runs in his first 11 seasons and the second after Al Simmons (1924-34) to reach 100 RBIs in his first 10. He has a .338 average with 445 home runs and 1,329 RBIs to become a franchise icon second only to Musial, and is fourth in career slugging percentage at .617, trailing only Hall of Famers Ruth (.690), Ted Williams (.634) and Lou Gehrig (.632). But Pujols’ numbers in nearly every major offensive category are on a three-year decline. He had his poorest season in 2011 with a .299 average, 37 homers and 99 RBIs. He batted just .240 in the Series but had a night for the ages in Game 3, joining Ruth and Reggie Jackson

as only the third player to hit three home runs in a Series game. “We understand that players will go through peaks and valleys of sort,” Dipoto said. “Albert has spent many years operating at peak, and if we want to call a decline going from superhuman to just great, I don’t think we’ve seen the last great days of Albert Pujols, obviously, or we wouldn’t be sitting here today.” Some have speculated he is older than the listed 31 and he could be a full-time designated hitter within a few years. “Albert Pujols’ age to me is not a concern,” Dipoto said. “I’m not a scientist. I can’t tell you where he is, but I can tell you he hits like he’s 27.” The Angels made the move as the financially troubled Los Angeles Dodgers are in the process of being sold by Frank McCourt in U.S. Bankruptcy Court, a deal that could give the region’s NL team a new, wealthy owner. The Dodgers could aggressively bid for talent a year from now, giving them a boost in the regional competition for fans’ attention.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Footlooseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; provides adrenaline rush BY TERRY BURNS Movie Critic

Footloose, PG13, ***1/2,Kenny Wormald, Julianne Hough, Dennis Quaid, Vindie MacDowell, John Flueger, Miles Teller; Paramount film; Director Craig Brewer; length -- 113 minutes As the song â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mr. Bojanglesâ&#x20AC;? by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;He danced and talked of life.â&#x20AC;? This could be a metaphor for the remake of the movie, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Footloose.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Footlooseâ&#x20AC;? originally came out in 1984 and starred Kevin Bacon and Lori Singer. It has been updated for todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teenagers and takes place in a small rural town in the South. The movie begins with a dance at a local high school, after which a horrible accident happens. The local townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s counsel then bans dancing for teenagers. It becomes illegal to have a dance in the city limits and a

curfew for young people is also passed. Ren (Kenny Wormald) shows up in the small Southern town and moves in with his uncle and his family. Ren is from Massachusetts and the norms of the south are quiet a shock to him. He is a great athlete, and an individual who knows how to work. He has had some hard times in his past, but he is a compassionate and smart young boy. The Rev. Moore (Dennis Quaid), the local preacher and a member of the town council, preaches hell fire and brimstone along with suppressing the young peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s social life. This does not set well with Ren or Mooreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter Ariel (Julianne Hough). Of course, everyone tends to scrutinize preacherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s children a little more than others. They seem to be expected to walk the straight and narrow at all times, so they are under the microscope. Ariel is dating a real

unusual verses at a city council meeting. Hopefully, the audience wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t shake off the message while listening to the music. The song â&#x20AC;&#x153;Footlooseâ&#x20AC;? plays at the beginning and end of the movie. The viewer may have to hold on to his or her theater seat in order to keep from getting up on the floor and dancing foolishly!

Chuck is not happy with this. Ren makes friends with Willard (Miles Teller). He is shy and does not know how to dance. Ren teaches him how to dance. As a result Ren creates a dancing fool in Willard. He definitely becomes a hot shot dancer by the final scenes of the movie. Ren has a few problems in school and the teachers do not take time to learn more about his troubled past. Forcing suppression on people may result in some kind of revolt. Ren does not understand the over the top constraint in the new town he is living in.

Death row inmate gets new trial because of tweet Associated Press

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Arkansas Supreme Court on Thursday tossed out a death row inmateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s murder conviction and said he deserves a new trial because one juror slept and another tweeted during court proceedings. Erickson Dimas-Martinezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attorneys had appealed his 2010 murder conviction because a juror sent tweets despite the judgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s instruction not to post on the Internet or communicate with anyone about the case. The lawyers also complained that another juror slept. In one tweet, juror Randy Franco wrote: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Choices to be made. Hearts to be broken...We each define the great line.â&#x20AC;? Less than an hour before the jury announced its verdict, he tweeted: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s over.â&#x20AC;? Other tweets by Franco made passing references to the trial, with posts such as, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the coffee sucks hereâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Court. Day 5. Here we go again.â&#x20AC;? The court said Franco, known as Juror 2 in court documents, violated gen-

eral instructions to not discuss the case. Before opening arguments, the judge said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just remember, never discuss this case over your cell phone. .... and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Twitter anybody about this case.â&#x20AC;? Franco didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t immediately return a message left Thursday, but he has defended his tweets in the past. â&#x20AC;&#x153;None of my texts indicated anything about the trial,â&#x20AC;? he told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t made up my mind.â&#x20AC;? That explanation seemed to satisfy a lower court judge, but it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sit well with the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highest court. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because of the very nature of Twitter as an ... online social media site, Juror 2â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tweets about the trial were very much public discussions. Even if such discussions were one-sided, it is in no way appropriate for a juror to state musings, thoughts, or other information about a case in such a public fashion,â&#x20AC;? Associate Justice Donald Corbin wrote.

acter in the play is important. Some arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t on the stage long, but what they say is important.â&#x20AC;? The play features several local actors in key roles. Corinth resident and CT-A veteran Nathan Dodds portrays the moneyhungry Scrooge. Corinth High School instructor Philip Henson makes his stage debut as the ghostly Marley. For the Petty family of Iuka, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Scrooge & Marleyâ&#x20AC;? is a family project. John Petty plays Bob Cratchit opposite his real-life wife, Lesley, as Mrs. Cratchit. Their 17-year-old daughter, Rebekah, plays the dual roles of the wife of Scroogeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nephew and the Spirit of Christmas to Come. John and Lesleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other daughter, 15-year-old Leah, stepped into the role of the Spirit of Christmas Present after Kelley Johnson got sick shortly before performance time. The director said Johnson could possibly play the role she put so much time into rehearsing if she recovers in time. Corinthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jan Soltz, a CT-A board member and veteran of the stage, plays the Spirit of Christmas Past. Her husband, Tom, and her son, David, appear in the play as well. Tickets can be purchased by calling the Crossroads Playhouse and will be available at the theaterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s box office beginning at 3:30 p.m. today and 1 p.m. on Saturday. Tickets to the show are $12 for adults and $6 for students. Reservations are strongly encouraged. While â&#x20AC;&#x153;Scrooge & Marleyâ&#x20AC;? is based on a Christmas classic, its moral of focusing oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life on people â&#x20AC;&#x201D; instead of the pursuit of money â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is a message to keep in mind all year long, Dixon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heartwarming, but not a comedy,â&#x20AC;? she pointed out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And it shifts our focus onto whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really important in life.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Scrooge & Marleyâ&#x20AC;? will open tonight at 7:30 p.m. It will be performed again at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday and 2 p.m. on Sunday.

Palestinians’ statehood bid part of Christmas BY MOHAMMED DARAGHMEH Associated Press

BETHLEHEM, West Bank — At Christmas time the world looks to Jesus’ traditional birthplace of Bethlehem, and this year the Palestinians hope to use some of that attention to boost their quest for independence. They’re trying to be subtle about it, with just a hint of politics in this year’s Christmas slogan, “Palestine celebrating hope,” a veiled reference to their bid this fall to win U.N. recognition of a Palestinian state. Organizers say they didn’t want to be overtly political for fear of putting off foreign pilgrims in search of a religious experience. Some 90,000 foreign visitors are expected to throng the Church of the Nativity and adjacent Manger Square in December, including 50,000 during Christmas week. “We want to use this opportunity to convey a message to the world that we have hope of having our own independent state and we need the international support for that,” said Palestin-

ian Tourism Minister Khouloud Daibes. “Since Christmas is a religious occasion, we can’t use direct political slogans.” Volunteers will distribute postcards with the Christmas motto in the courtyard of the Church of the Nativity, built over the grotto where tradition says Jesus was born. Visitors can then mail them at the Manger Square post office, using Palestinian stamps, another symbol of the state in the making. Members of a tour group from Britain and Canada heading into the Nativity church Tuesday had mixed feelings. Some, like 37-year-old pilot Mario Savian from Ontario, said they didn’t like injecting politics into Christmas. But Catherine Meecham, 62, a retired health worker from Scotland, said there was a legitimate connection because Christmas is a time to pray for peace. “I want to see people in Palestine find a peaceful solution,” she said. Israeli government spokesman Mark Regev said the cause of peace would be better served

by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas resuming negotiations with Israel. “We hope that the Palestinians will use the holiday season as a time to think ... and that ultimately they will soon expeditiously return to peace talks,” he said. Abbas has said he won’t negotiate unless Israel halts construction for Jews on occupied lands the Palestinians want for their state, arguing settlement growth pre-empts the outcome of talks. As part of the campaign, the Palestinians also offer pre-Christmas media tours to highlight Bethlehem area settlement expansion and the disruption caused by Israel’s separation barrier which surrounds the city on three sides. Israel announced or approved plans for thousands more apartments for Jews in the Bethlehem area in recent months, settlement watchdogs say. “This Christmas will be an opportunity to show the real threat to the city of Bethlehem -- the settlement enterprise and the wall that separates the city from its twin, Jeru-

salem,” said Ziad Bandak, an Abbas adviser on Christian affairs. The Bethlehem area, which borders occupied lands Israel annexed to Jerusalem after the 1967 Mideast War, has been particularly hard-hit by settlement construction, said Hagit Ofran of the Israeli anti-settlement group Peace Now. She said the expansion is an attempt to block the Palestinians from establishing a capital in the annexed areas of Jerusalem -- a reference to the fact that the construction creates an Israeli buffer between Palestinian areas Israel has effectively ceded, like Bethlehem, and any part of Jerusalem. Regev argued that Israel only approved construction “in areas where there’s a strong consensus internationally that they’ll stay part of Israel” in a final peace deal. However, the international community has repeatedly urged Israel to halt settlement construction. After Christmas, Abbas’ government also plans to seek U.N. recognition of Bethlehem as a world

heritage site, following acceptance of Palestine as a member of the world body’s cultural agency, UNESCO. The successful UNESCO membership bid further strained relations with Israel, which accused Abbas of trying to bypass negotiations with unilateral actions and temporarily suspended the transfer of $100 million in Palestinian tax refunds. Over the years, Christmas in Bethlehem has reflected the rollercoaster of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Tourism experienced a long dry spell at the height of the second Palestinian uprising a decade ago -- at one point Palestinian gunmen on the run from Israeli troops even barricaded themselves in the Nativity church for a month. During the relative lull of recent years, the number of visitors has risen gradually, in part because Israel has eased access through the barrier which consists of gray cement slabs along the stretch separating Bethlehem from Jerusalem. This year, the number of foreign visitors is expected to be up about 10

percent from last year, mainly because more pilgrims are coming from Russia and Poland, new markets for the Palestinian tourism industry, officials said. Local Christians say they have no problem with politicizing the holiday, saying the conflict with Israel affects everyone’s lives here. “The settlements and the wall turned Bethlehem into a jail,” said Suzan Atallah, a 48-yearold teacher and mother of four. “My school can’t take the students to sacred places that they read about in Jerusalem because of the wall and the permits,” she added, referring to Israel’s stringent entry restrictions for Palestinians. In Beit Jalla, a town next to Bethlehem, prayers at the local Roman Catholic church have focused on the fear of losing land to Israel’s separation barrier, said the congregation’s priest, Father Ibrahim Shomaly.

3B â&#x20AC;˘ Daily Corinthian

Woman worried about boy, guns DEAR ABBY: I recently met a man I love dearly, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t agree with the toys he buys for his 10-year-old son, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dale.â&#x20AC;? The boy plays violent video games and is obsessed with guns to the point that we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave the house without him bringing a toy gun along. The video games he plays (unsupervised) are violent and gory and rated M. Dale is not mature for his age. In fact, he often whines when he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get his way. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s allowed on the Internet without supervision, and I have walked in and caught him surfing naughty pictures. When I told his dad, he laughed and said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Boys will be boys!â&#x20AC;? Abby, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m afraid for my 6-year-old daughter. A few weeks ago, Dale decided he wanted to play â&#x20AC;&#x153;good guys/bad guysâ&#x20AC;? with her. When he grabbed my daughter in a choke hold and held a toy gun to her head, she became hysterical. I have since had nightmares that Dale will find a real gun, think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of his play guns and shoot my

daughter. I think Daleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obsession is unhealthy, and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Abigail healthy for Van Buren my daughter to be Dear Abby around him. How do I handle this with my boyfriend? I love him and would like to spend the rest of my life with him, but I cannot marry him at the expense of my daughter. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; PARANOID AND PERPLEXED DEAR PARANOID AND PERPLEXED: How did your boyfriend handle the â&#x20AC;&#x153;good guys/ bad guysâ&#x20AC;? incident when you brought it to his attention? The answer to that question will provide you with insight into his ability to parent his son, and what your and your daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future will be like if you marry him. If his reaction wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t to your satisfaction, then you must place your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safety above your heartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s desire, and you have assessed the situa-

tion correctly. DEAR ABBY: I am a divorced, childless, independent and financially secure woman. I live happily in my upscale apartment. How do I respond to family members, coworkers and friends who constantly ask, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you buy a house and quit throwing your money away paying rent?â&#x20AC;? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to buy a house and be tied to a 30-year mortgage. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m perfectly happy the way things are. What is a proper response to those questions? Saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want toâ&#x20AC;? hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been enough. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; HAPPY RENTER IN HOUSTON DEAR HAPPY RENTER: The responsibilities of home ownership arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for everyone, and many individuals have realized it as bills for plumbers, electricians, roofers, insurance and property taxes mounted up. You might mention that to the inquirers, although your response to your wellmeaning friends, relatives and co-workers should have been sufficient. A

way to change the subject would be to say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talk about something else.â&#x20AC;? DEAR ABBY: My 22-year-old son told me he had a fight with his girlfriend. Am I allowed to ask him what it was about, or if they have resolved the problem? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; CURIOUS MOM IN MONTANA DEAR CURIOUS MOM: When your son mentioned the spat, that would have been the logical time to ask what it was about. If you start probing now â&#x20AC;&#x201D; after the fact â&#x20AC;&#x201D; it could be construed as nosiness. If heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still seeing the girlfriend, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safe to assume the problem was resolved â&#x20AC;&#x201D; so keep your mouth shut, your eyes open and let him solve his relationship issues without involving yourself in them. (Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.)

Horoscopes BY HOLIDAY MATHIS If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re feeling heavily burdened, troubled or oppressed in some way, Uranus invites you to revolt. The planet has been traveling retrograde and will now resume a direct path in Aries, the realm of the warrior. Be brave, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be cosmically supported. If perchance your own mental chains are the oppressor, it is now time to throw them off. ARIES (March 21-April 19). Setting goals may be the start of creating a change, but goals are not enough in and of themselves to make the transformation happen. Action is the only way. Be confident, and keep moving ahead. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Regrets are normal, and you may realize youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been carrying around a few accumulated disappointments, as well. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to cast these cumbersome burdens away. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be planning the rest of the month, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t plan everything. Footloose and fancy-free plans open a wider and more enjoyable sphere of possibilities than you could have dreamed up. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You will benefit from a technique for more constant inner balance. Repeat to yourself: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am not under attack. Modifying my values and attitudes will help me grow.â&#x20AC;? LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any wild ambitions for your loved ones. You want only for their happiness, in whatever form it takes. As for yourself, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a different story. A big dream is start-

ing to come together. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not one to accept a naive reliance on luck, and yet some things are completely out of your control. So youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll let go and hope for the best. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s precisely what will come of this. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You still have time to do something extremely special for a loved one by the end of the year. Keep in mind that a gift you make by hand will have deep meaning and personal significance. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You were there when a project, person or idea was in its infancy stage. Now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s developed into its own exciting force in the world, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be running to keep up. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). A feminine supporter will bolster your ego and remind you who you really are. And though this may happen on a superficial level, it helps you keep faith in yourself. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your sign mate Professor Edwin A. Locke notes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are two kinds of people in the world: the vulnerable and the dead. Those who live only to avoid hurt are the living dead.â&#x20AC;? AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your attitude will keep you in perfect readiness to receive good fortune when it befalls you. Until then, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not in the mood to worry or obsess. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be focused on following a new curiosity. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The day will be socially oriented, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find many occasions to

shake hands and exchange smiles and hugs. The work gets done when everyone agrees on the task and cooperates in their efforts. TODAYâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 9). Believe that known and unknown forces are on your side. All of your hard work, planning and organization will pay off in 2012. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll affirm your love and solidify new relationships in February. March favors your business ventures and financial transactions. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a breakthrough for your family in May. Scorpio and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 2, 7, 14, 39 and 10. WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: Watch your gestures. Go at a slow, seductive pace. TAURUS: Love may not conquer all, but it will conquer most. GEMINI: Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll feel that you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t control whom you love, and this is true to some extent. CANCER: You have a wideopen interest in someone. LEO: Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be feeling even more secure in yourself now that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve let go of your expectations of someone. VIRGO: Your honest smile is irresistible. LIBRA: So many people use bad manners to break social barriers when good manners will bring people together. SCORPIO: Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get overly caught up in reciprocating what someone has already given you. SAGITTARIUS: Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll like the pace of romance. CAPRICORN: Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll make room for someone in your life. AQUARIUS: Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be interested in more than a friendship with someone. PISCES: Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll create a warm feeling of mutual acknowledgment.
