Fire chief urges safety BY JEBB JOHNSTON email@example.com
The display of live Christmas trees, cooking of big holiday meals and the use of electrical space heaters combine to make December one of the most fire-prone times of the year in the home. Fire officials encourage residents to keep safety in mind as they enjoy the holidays. From 2005 to 2009, more than 200 home fires per year in the U.S. began with Christmas trees, according to the state fire marshal’s office. Corinth Fire Chief Rob Price said proper care of the live trees is very important. “Be sure the trees are wellwatered. They drink more water than you think they would,” he said. As a general rule, according to the marshal’s office, tree stands should provide 1 quart of water per inch of stem diameter. Shedding needles indicate a tree is dry and a fire hazard. Tree lights are another potential source of trouble. “Make sure that the lights’ wires are not frayed, and when purchasing new lights, make sure they have a UL listing,” said Price. The UL listing is a product safety certification. Lights should be unplugged before leaving or going to bed, and Christmas trees should be kept away from any potential sources of ignition, such as Please see SAFETY | 3A

Outbreak source: Don Julio State report confirms 59 cases came from 1 restaurant BY STEVE BEAVERS firstname.lastname@example.org
The salmonella crisis is over. The Mississippi State Department of Health reports that salmonella is no longer a risk to the public in Corinth and singles out one restaurant as to the source of the recent
food poisoning outbreak. The MSDH reports that 59 patrons and employees of Don Julio Mexican Restaurant — located in The Commons shopping center — have had positive cultures confirming the presence of salmonella. “Our investigation has
shown that the incident does not appear to be a food producer or supplier issue,” said Northeast Mississippi District Health Officer Dr. Jessie R. Taylor. “It appears to be an isolated problem with this particular restaurant, and the restaurant is working closely with
us to correct the problem.” Don Julio will remain closed until an improvement plan is approved by the MSDH. The MSDH reports that area health care providers have been notified of the situation. Please see OUTBREAK | 3A
Grant helps famous sword’s return BY STEVE BEAVERS email@example.com
The Corinth Area Convention & Visitors Bureau is teaming with the Sons of Confederate Veterans to bring the sword of Col. W.P. Rogers back to Corinth.
Board members agreed to a funding request of $3,500 to sponsor the Corinth Civil War Relic Show in March in which the sword will be displayed. “This year I am 99.9 percent sure we will have Col. Rogers sword,” said Larry Mangus with
the Sons of Confederate Veterans. “We hope to get a 20-25 percent increase in people attending because of the sword.” Should the sword not arrive to be displayed, the board agreed to fund the event for $2,500. “This will be a once in a
lifetime treat,” said Mangus. “Who knows if we will ever get it back again.” “Usually, we sponsor the show for $2,500 but this is a special year,” added tourism Please see SWORD | 3A
Organizations host legislative reception BY STEVE BEAVERS firstname.lastname@example.org
Community leaders received chance this week to become more familiar with local representatives in state government. The Alliance and Corinth Area Convention & Visitors Bureau co-sponsored a legislative reception for the officials on Monday evening. “We want to keep a good rapport with our legislative delegation and let them know who we are,” said The Alliance President and Chief Operating Officer Gary Chandler. “This is an effort to say thank you for their service and best of luck.” “It’s a time to meet with our local and state reps one-onone,” added Alliance president Brian McCullen. Among those attending the reception where newly elected local state representatives Nick Bain, Lester “Bubba” Carpenter, Tracy Arnold along with other city and county elected officials. “It has been an exciting and fun time,” said district 2 representative Bain. “We have a chance tonight to talk with people and find out what their concerns are, along with just having a time of fellowship.” Chandler said he looks forward to working with the representatives in the state legislature. “We have a lot of new faces and we need to stick together as Alcorn County and the TAP Alliance,” he said. Carpenter is ready to continue the work for the area. “They’re a lot of good people in Alcorn County and I’m honored by their support,” said the district 1 representative. “I look forward to working with the new guys.” Arnold told the crowd that all three of the reps will be working together for northeast Mississippi. “We have a great opportunity in this part of the state and we are all pulling in the same

District moves forward on softball facility BY JEBB JOHNSTON email@example.com
The Corinth School District is moving forward with plans for a softball facility at property it owns on Proper Street east of Harper Road. Superintendent Lee Childress told the board of trustees on Monday that it’s possible the field will be ready for use
in the upcoming season, which begins around March 1. “We are hoping to get that out for bids real soon … We are going to begin to clear the site where we can hopefully get it drier than it is with the trees that are on it right now,” he said. Architectural plans are yet to be completed, but the district

is planning for bleachers with seating for 408, two dugouts, fencing, dressing area and ticket booth. “If we ever built a baseball field on the other side, it will serve as a dual entrance and ticket booth for both fields,” said Childress. Showing the board some preliminary drawings, the su-
perintendent noted that the field house does appear “extremely long.” “Part of this is a covered area that the coaches would like to have to work out in bad weather,” he said. “A lot of these things will be bid as alternates so we can see how they come in.”
On this day in history 150 years ago Prince Albert, consort of Queen Victoria of England, died at the age of 42. Though in poor health, he had been working behind the scenes to defuse the tension between the United States and Great Britain caused by the “Trent Affair.”

Christmas at Corinth Elementary
Waits Jewelry & Fine Gifts
Photos by Kim Jobe/Corinth School District
Students in Lee Ann Knuckles’ second-grade class at Corinth Elementary School took time out recently to hang the ornaments they made on the Christmas trees which stand in the entryway of the school. The trio of pre-lit Christmas trees were provided by the school’s PTO in order to spruce up the school for the holiday season. Students in pre-K through fourth-grade have spent a little time recently creating ornaments to be placed on the trees. The students will take the ornaments home with them when classes are dismissed on Friday, Dec. 16, for Christmas break. Also pictured are first-graders in classes taught by Jennifer Strickland (candy canes) and Lauren Roberts (snow men) who were working on their ornaments to hang them on the tree.

UT-Martin offers waiver BY JEFF YORK For the Daily Corinthian
SELMER, Tenn. — A Crossroads area university is now offering to waive out-of-state tuition for high-achieving students. The University of Tennessee at Martin will begin in 2012 to waive out-of-state tuition for any applicant with an ACT score of 25 or above and a 3.5 GPA on a 4.0 scale. The offer is expected to increase the number of Mississippi students at the U.T.-Martin campus branch in Selmer. The tuition break is valued at about $12,400 per year, and applicants will also be eligible for university scholarships such as the Deans, Chancellors and University Scholars. “We do expect it to get more students from Mississippi to come to
our school,” said Deidra Beene, director of the U.T. Martin/McNairy County — Selmer campus. “This waiver is a fantastic way for those students to come to our university and save money.” U.T.-Martin had previously lowered the out-of-state tuition to Mississippi students in Alcorn, Tishomingo and Tippah counties. “We did get more of the area students from across the state line when UTM reduced some of the out-of-state tuition two years ago,” said Beene. UTM now has approximately 250 students at their Selmer campus and that number is growing larger every year. Prospective students can apply online and find scholarship infor-
mation at www.utm.edu. The deadline to apply for scholarships is Feb. 1, 2012. Beene pointed out a student could get their two-year degree at Northeast Community College and then cross the state line to finish their four-year degree at UTM in Selmer. The UTM campus offers degrees Elementary Education (K-6), Social Work, History and BUS (bachelor of university studies). Beene has been working at the Selmer campus for 11 years and has served as the director of the school for the past six years. Since 1998, U.T.-Martin has administered the Selmer campus, which serves McNairy County, Please see WAIVER | 5A

heaters. Artificial trees should be fire-retardant. When cooking for the holidays, Price said it’s important to remain attentive and keep young children away. Heating can pose a hazard at the holidays and throughout the winter. The fire department often sees problems with
space heaters. “Never leave them unattended,” said Price. “If you have to leave the room, turn them off.” Also, “Do not ever sleep with them on,” he said. “We have had people throw the cover off the bed and cover them up and start a fire.” As a fire in the city last Friday illustrated, electric wall heaters are
also a threat. Common in homes built during the 1950s and 1960s, the heaters need to be removed from the power source or the breaker thrown if they are not being used. The heaters can sometimes turn on even when they appear to be off. “The thermostat that is in them does not have an ‘off,’” said Price.
OUTBREAK: 10 new cases reported over weekend CONTINUED FROM 1A
Ten new cases were reported over the weekend while the final count shows an increase of 20 from Monday. A report from Magnolia Regional Health Center on Tuesday says the hospital treated 40 patients for salmonella. The first report of patients being treated for salmonella was made
public last Tuesday afternoon, when Magnolia Regional Health Center CEO Rick Napper released a statement saying the hospital had received 11 positive salmonella cultures since Monday, Nov. 28, 2011. A note taped to the front door of Don Julio since last Tuesday says the restaurant’s management decided to close for the safety of its cus-
tomers. The restaurant claims it was closed due to reports of contaminated vegetables it had received from suppliers. The restaurant had been inspected by health officials, the note explained, and no evidence of contamination was found. Although the restaurant was not ordered to close, it would remain inoperative to await test results.

Last year, 675 attended the relic show, a figure that was up from 550 the previous year. “It’s unbelievable the sword is coming back,” said Mangus who saw the sword for the first time at a relic show in Franklin, Tenn., last year.

Improving education deserves brass bands Tooting a little horn isn’t getting the job done. Mississippi needs to strike up a proverbial brass band to promote itself. “You just don’t know what you’re sitting on here,” said Ed Day, president and CEO of Mississippi Power Co., to those gathered in Gulfport for a stop on the Mississippi Economic Council’s progress tour. He was referring to the positive aspects of Mississippi — the state’s infrastructure, workforce, environment, culture and improving educational performance — that are too often discounted by the state’s all too often low standing in national rankings. But as MEC President Blake Wilson said, “We do not own the franchise on problems and we need to stop selling that and buying into it.” To help put a stop to the poor mouthing and give Mississippians even more to brag about, the MEC is championing “Blueprint Mississippi,” the vision of which is “to enable a more prosperous, vibrant and resilient Mississippi, built upon a foundation of economic opportunity for all its citizens.” As with superior highways, superior schools will not blossom overnight. But classroom by classroom and district by district, progress can be made until no child is left behind anywhere in Mississippi for any reason. Methods to achieve this are already being formulated. But to spread success across Mississippi will require funding from the Legislature that does not dry up whenever the state experiences a rainy day. We’ve proven that we can build roads. Now we need to prove that we can put our children on the road to success here in Mississippi. Doing so will justify striking up quite a few brass bands. Sun Herald, Biloxi
Local reserves should be used for emergencies Gov. Haley Barbour, in a series of farewell speeches across the state, is putting forth some good ideas and at least one that’s not very conservative. Among a long list of suggestions on education, Barbour said K-12 districts, community colleges and universities should spend down their own reserve funds to reduce state budget pressure. Coveting local school district reserve funds to take the pressure off the state isn’t new with Barbour. He’s pushed the idea before. But those reserves are there for a reason — to use in emergencies. Perhaps there should be a limit on how much is held in reserve, but any agency or business needs one. It seems contradictory that while Barbour zealously guarded state reserve funds, he didn’t seem to appreciate local school districts holding back some money. Enterprise-Journal, McComb

In particular, under state law to collect states would have to write state sales taxes while the their laws to require that online merchants without a the sales tax be collected at physical business domicile the point of delivery rather in Mississippi were allowed than at the point of sale.
But Barbour’s original claim — that he was against “raising anybody’s taxes” — will still be true. Collecting sales tax on online purchases of items that are already subject to sales tax in Mississippi isn’t a new tax by any stretch of the imagination. It’s an existing tax that the state has failed to collect and that big corporations have fought to avoid. Congress gave those corporations cover. But now, even mighty Amazon. com has seen the light and agreed to voluntarily collect state sales tax. The technology exists to do it. And the failure to do so remains as unfair to mom-and-pop, Main Street merchants as it was a decade ago. A 2009 University of Tennessee study estimated that Mississippi lost between $102.1 million and $117.4 million in uncollected legal sales taxes due in 2010 and estimated Mississippi’s online sales tax collection losses between the period of 2007 and 2012 to be between $616.5 million and $667.6 million. That’s not from new taxes, that’s
from uncollected present taxes. Perhaps there’s one argument that conservative Mississippi lawmakers can embrace. Congress, after years of letting the lobbyists hold sway over the online sales tax issue, has the issue in its sights. If individual states like Mississippi don’t move quickly and decisively to collect existing state sales taxes and use that revenue to fund state government, then Congress is certain to look at online sales as a potential federal tax source. But what is clear is that as Barbour was in 2003, Bryant is on record against collecting existing state sales taxes on online sales. Why? He’s planning on facing the voters again and doesn’t want to do so with accusations that he raised taxes. Still, it’s clear that online sales tax collection isn’t a new tax at all. It’s full and fair collection of an existing tax that should be collected. Sid Salter is a syndicated columnist. Contact him at email@example.com.

ting Newt’s check-kiting, double-dipping, ethics-violating, government-shutdowning ways, the rank and file also may be able to overlook his hypocrisy. That’s why double standards were invented, after all. I no longer say things like, “Gee, wouldn’t Democrats have a field day if Republicans nominated Newt.” Watch American politics long enough, and you learn to keep your mouth shut. For whenever you think you’ve reached the bottom of the barrel, pulled a monkey from the muck, then someone comes along to remind you it could be worse.

Local Officials warn: ’Tis the season for phone, mail scams BY ANGELA STOREY firstname.lastname@example.org
Law enforcement authorities warn residents to beware of telephone and mail scams anytime and especially during the holiday season. “This time of year, we see an increase in ploys involving scams. I have received an unusual number of calls concerning scams within the last several weeks,” said Prentiss County Sheriff Randy Tolar. “The most recent have been someone calling and claiming to be a representative from Publishers Clearing House, notifying
people that they have won a cash prize with the catch that they must obtain a money card and put an amount of money on it, then either send the card or somehow otherwise transfer funds to them. “The other involves bogus debt collection that targets people that are vulnerable to pressure and convince them that they owe them money and insist the victim give them bank information or other means of making the pay-
ment over the telephone.” Sheriff Tolar encourages everyone to be wise to these sorts of scams and simply hang up. “Don’t carry on a conversation with them and just don’t answer the telephone during their numerous attempts to call back. Brandon Presley, the Northern District Public Service Commissioner, recommends these actions rather that talking with the scammer and take a chance on becoming con-

vinced of the ploy. “These people are very diverse in their methods of scamming and are very convincing. There are varying versions of these scams. The best rule of thumb is, if it sounds too good to be true it very likely is a scam.” Law enforcement also sees an increase in the number of thefts and burglaries during the holiday season.
“Most of them occur during the daytime hours while many people are at work. I encourage neighbors to look out for one another and when they see something suspicious (people, activities or vehicles passing frequently), call the Sheriff’s Office or Police Department giving a good description and direction of travel as possible. “This could prevent a theft or burglary, aid us in
catching the suspects in the act or provide a vital lead in the event of a theft or burglary. Even if the event might seem insignificant it could very well be something. “This last week, I had someone report suspicious activity in their community on two occasions and eventually was able to get a tag number that gave us a lead in a string of recent thefts.”

JACKSON — A report being released Wednesday could recommend a three-year elimination of cost-of-living increases for Mississippi government retirees and a longterm change in the pension rules for new hires, according to a nonvoting member of the group that produced the document. Sen. Hob Bryan, DAmory, said he read a draft that included a recommendation to halt, for three years, the 3 percent annual increase now given to people receiving benefits from the state Public Employees Retirement System. “This is after the gov-

Thief slips away with load of butter Associated Press
CEDAR FALLS, Iowa — Authorities are searching for a thief who slipped away with a truckload of margarine bound for an Iowa warehouse. The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports that
authorities say a semitrailer packed with the spread, about $50,000 worth, disappeared during the weekend from a truck stop in Elks Run, near Waterloo. The margarine was bound for a Target warehouse in Ce-
ernor said people who worried about their 13th checks were silly,” Bryan told The Associated Press on Tuesday. The cost-of-living adjustment is typically referred to as a “13th check” because many retirees take it as a lump payment at the end of each calendar year. However, they have the option to receive the COLA each month. Bryan said the draft also included a recommendation that new government employees have different pension rules. Half of their retirement money would go into a defined benefit plan that all PERS beneficiaries have now, and the other half would go into a defined contribution plan with the em-

dar Falls. The Black Hawk County sheriff’s office says the driver left the trailer at the truck stop to wait until the warehouse had space. Another truck was slated to pick up the trailer for the last leg of the journey.

ployees either managing their own investments or hiring someone to manage the investments for them. Bryan said the defined contribution plan would be riskier for employees. “This obsession with the defined contribution plan is just a philosophical difficulty with having the system that we have,” Bryan said. Republican Gov. Haley Barbour appointed the 12-member commission in August to study the investments, management and other financial aspects of Mississippi PERS. The group on Wednesday is releasing the report with recommended changes to shore up the system’s finances. The group can only make recommendations. Any changes would have to be approved by new lawmakers who take office in January. Barbour’s term expires Jan. 10. During public hearings this fall, public employees expressed concern about the possibility of reduced benefits for their retirement. Many said a reduction would make it difficult for them to retire comfortably. Union leaders said many public employees already work for lower wages than private-sector workers, and a defined-benefits retirement package is incentive for many to stick with government work. The study group was meeting during the legislative election season, and the uproar over possible changes in benefits prompted Democratic and Republican candidates to pledge to protect the system, including preserving the 13th check, if possible.

If youâ€™ve had big gains or losses in some of your investments, you should think about rebalancing. That means selling some investments to be sure that none of your holdings has a disproportionate share of your portfolio. Letâ€™s say that bonds made up 10 percent of your portfolio at the start of the year, and now make up 20 percent after this yearâ€™s gains. If you feel that you have too much money in bonds, consider selling some. You might also want to sell some of your losing stocks, especially if they still look risky. Investors who bought stocks of foreign companies to diversify their portfolios have had big losses this year. The MSCI EAFE index, a broad list of stocks in developed countries, is down 16 percent. And the global economy still looks risky because of the European debt crisis. Selling at a loss will help you offset taxes on any gains youâ€™ve had.
Last minute planning The end of the year is a good time to see if you want to make any changes in your investment portfolio. This is especially true after the volatility that has left many stock investors with losses for 2011. The S&P 500 is down 2.5 percent. As you do your yearend review, keep in mind that the uncertainty about the U.S. economy and the European debt crisis that hurt stocks this year is expected to continue into 2012.
Keep in mind that good yields will still be hard to find next year. Interest rates are expected to remain at historic lows because the Federal Reserve says it plans to keep short-term rates near zero at least until mid-2013. Investors seeking income will see very little from money-market accounts or CDs. The top yield youâ€™re likely to find from either is likely to stay at about 1 percent. Investors looking for income from bonds might do better by buying municipal or high-grade corporate bonds. The average muni with an AAA rating and that matures in 20 years has a yield above 3 percent. The average 20-year corporate bond with an AAA rating has a yield above 4 percent.

Bond sale in Italy
Joy Global earnings
The Italian government holds an auction of five-year bonds. Investors want to see how good demand is for the bonds after European nations agreed to create a treaty designed to prevent debt crises in the future.

Joy Global isnâ€™t a household name, but the mining equipment companyâ€™s fiscal fourth-quarter earnings report will be notable for its take on the economy. When it released third-quarter results in August, Joy Global said it had increasing evidence that the economies of countries around the world were slowing. But it also said it thinks the world economy is stronger than it was when the recession started in December 2007.

Biggersville sweeps 1-1A twinbill Field goal defense paves the way BY H. LEE SMITH II email@example.com
BIGGERSVILLE — Defending the rim was a winning formula for Biggersville. The Lady Lions held Thrasher scoreless from the floor for an 8:11 span of the second half in ending a twogame skid with a 45-41 win in Division 1-1A play. BHS (6-4, 3-1) outscored the visitors 9-1 during the span, erasing a halftime deficit and avenging an earlier 4036 loss to the Lady Rebels. The drought was much lon-
ger and the margin even bigger in the nightcap. The Lions held the Rebels without a field goal for 10:23 stretch of the middle quarters in a 90-62 victory. Biggersville (8-2, 4-0) blew the game wide open in the second half as 16 out of 17 players got in on the scoring act. The Lions and Lady Lions continue 1-1A play Friday at home against Falkner. ■ After watching Xeneia Sorrell light up the nets for 22 points in the first half, the Lady Lions locked down on the sophomore and her teammates. Sorrell managed just a single free throw in the second
half and the rest of the Lady Rebels combined for just 12 more as the Lady Lions erased a 28-25 halftime deficit. Chloe Henson reclaimed the lead for BHS with consecutive buckets to begin the third. Thrasher answered with its own 4-0 spurt, pushing the advantage back out to three with 5:39 left in the quarter. A one-of-two showing from the stripe by Sorrell would be the only THS points over the equivalent of a quarter. Dana Thompson’s putback in the closing seconds gave BHS the lead for good at 3433. Thompson, who tied Henson for team honors with 10,
put back another miss in the fourth to cap a 9-1 advantage. Tatum Emmons’ long deuce with 5:28 remaining finally ended the Lady Rebel drought from the floor and pulled the visitors back to within 38-35. A three-point rip by Tyler Shelley and four straight points by Jada Tubbs ballooned the lead out to 45-37 with 1:37 remaining. Biggersville missed a pair of gimmies in the paint in the final 1:21, but Thrasher would get no closer than the final score. ■ The Lions hung 30 points in the third and another 28 in Please see BHS | 9A
Despite charity, Kossuth falls to ACHS BY JAMES MCQUAID MURPHY firstname.lastname@example.org
KOSSUTH -— Sometimes the difference between winning and losing comes down to the opponent’s charity. Not so last night at Kossuth High School, where despite the offerings of Alcorn Central, the Aggies and their Lady-friends just couldn’t pull away from a doubleheader sweep suffered at home. The visiting Golden Bear squads gave plenty of opportunity for their Aggie counterparts to rake in some change from the free throw line. While the Aggie men lost to ACHS by a margin of 33 points, 91-58, the Kossuth ladies fell by only one (51-50) after an astounding turnaround in the final minute of play. Neither Aggie unit entered the fray with a whole lot going for them, however. Both were down by five at the close of the initial eight, and by the break the Ladies had let their deficit slip to six, while the Aggie men found themselves down by 13 coming back from the half. Trae Bain led the Golden Bears into the recess with 14 points, six on a pair of treys in the upper four of the first period. He later closed the second period with a deuce and his third triple of the night. Bain went on to shoot 19 points, four from outside the arc, tying Aggie Josh Whitaker for the game-high record. Meanwhile four of Bain’s mates pulled down doubledigit scoring for the night. Jeremy Powers, Luke Maddox, Preston Cline, and Jay Moore combined for a total of 59 points against Kossuth. As for the charity work, the Golden Bears dished out a total of 28 fouls, handing the Aggies 40 shots from the free throw line. That was nice of them. No worries. With Maddox,

Alcorn Central’s Luke Maddox goes in for a layup over Kossuth’s Matthew Stewart. Moore, and Justin Sparks combining for six more in addition to Bain’s four triples - a total of 30 points from beyond the arc for ACHS - the Aggies would’ve been lucky to pull another ten for their side from the freebie mark, simply by upping their free throw percentage from 50 to 75. As it was, however, the Aggies only nailed 21 of those candy stripes. ACHS Coach Brandon Quinn said, “We still got a long way to go, and we definitely have to get more consistent.” ■ It was no better for Lady Aggies. If anything, Alcorn Central is happy to give away fouls. Coach Charlette Foster’s girls handed the Lady Aggies
39 holiday-come-early freebies, and for the Kossuth girls unit it would’ve made all the difference in the world. The girls match-up all came down to the final minute of play, where it looked as though ACHS had clenched it by a trustworthy cushion of six. Haley Barnes hits a deuce at the minute mark, taking Alcorn Central’s buffer to eight, but with the clock winding down to 39 seconds, Hanna Parks drops a triple followed seven seconds later by a turnaround. In steps Annaleigh Coleman, who sinks her third trey of the game and brings the score back down to a twopoint margin, 51-49. Suddenly Kossuth has a
shot at winning. What’s more, Coleman was under harm, and Barnes has now fouled out of the game to watch Coleman sink another conversion from the free throw mark, with thirty seconds still left on the clock. And here’s where all the difference in the world comes down to the realm of charity, even for the team that is the leading. Alexis Harmon misses a pair of free throws with 22.8 on the clock. No breathing room there. Rachel Winters takes the shot for Kossuth. Lucky for the Lady Bears, she misses. Clarissa Turner rebounds, Please see KOSSUTH | 9A
Harrison suspended 1 game for McCoy hit The Associated Press
PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison has carved out a niche as one of the NFL’s most feared defenders over the last five years by straddling the line between clean and dirty play. After one dangerous hit too many, the league apparently has seen enough. The NFL suspended Harrison for one game following
his helmet-to-facemask hit on Browns quarterback Colt McCoy last Thursday, making Harrison the first player to miss game time as a penalty under the league’s revamped policy on such collisions. Harrison’s agent Bill Parise said Tuesday afternoon Harrison has already filed an appeal and expects it to be heard later this week by Art Shell or Ted Cottrell, jointly appointed by the NFL and the players’
association to hear such cases. They’ll have to determine Harrison’s intent when he laid out McCoy late in the fourth quarter of Pittsburgh’s 14-3 victory. The 2008 NFL Defensive Player of the Year was penalized for roughing the passer on the play and said Monday he believed the hit didn’t warrant further punishment. NFL Executive Vice President Ray Anderson disagreed, pointing out the violation
marked the fifth illegal hit on a quarterback by Harrison in the last three seasons. The four-time Pro Bowler has also been fined on two other occasions for unnecessary roughness over the same period. Though Harrison hasn’t been fined for such a hit in over a year, he was considered a repeat offender under the 2011 League Policies for Players manual, leading to the suspension.
No. 17 Mississippi State survives late scare The Associated Press
STARKVILLE — Dee Bost scored 22 points, Rodney Hood added 19 and No. 17 Mississippi State survived a late scare from Florida Atlantic for a 75-68 victory Tuesday night. The Bulldogs had a comfortable 39-29 lead at halftime, but the Owls clawed their way back into the game, taking a 55-54 lead on Pablo Bertone’s 3-pointer with 9:22
remaining. Mississippi State fought off the rally, with Bost and Hood scoring a combined 24 second-half points on the way to the team’s ninth straight victory. Jalen Steele scored 12 points for the Bulldogs and Renardo Sidney added 10. Raymond Taylor had 20 points for Florida Atlantic (4-6) while Bertone scored 14 and Kore White added 12. Mississippi State (10-1) was
playing without two starters — guard Brian Bryant and forward Arnett Moultrie. Bryant missed a third straight game for a violation of team rules while Moultrie, who averages 17 points and 11 rebounds, missed the game because of knee tendinitis. Moultrie’s absence was the most significant and the Bulldogs obviously missed his production. The weakened lineup made the game strikingly similar to
last year, when a banged-up Mississippi State team lost a stunner to Florida Atlantic 6159. Bost watched that game from the sidelines because he was suspended after failing to pull his name out of the NBA draft by the deadline. But the Bulldogs seemed in control of this one early, taking a 39-29 halftime lead. Hood had 10 points while Steele and Please see MSU | 9A

the fourth in breaking open a 32-23 halftime lead. Thrasher went the final 7:08 of the second without a field goal, but stayed in the game at the stripe. The Rebels got 10 of their 12 second-quarter points from the free-throw line and finished the night 25-of-41. After a horrendous showing from the floor -- 13-of-49 overall, 1-of-13 from three-point range -- the Lions began to pull away in the third. Martonious Watson scored six of his team-high 16 points in a 10-0 run as the Lions pushed the lead to 19 less than three minutes into the second half. Luke Walden ended the run, and the Rebels 0-for streak from the floor, with a putback at the 4:45 mark. BHS responded at bumped the margin to as much as 22 before settling for a 62-44 lead after 24 minutes. Daniel Simmons rounded out Biggersville’s double-digit scorers with 11. The Lions remained unbeaten in league play despite getting just five points from leading scorer Dexter Stafford, who threw down 26 in the teams’ previous meeting.

Malzahn expects to be coach at Arkansas State The Associated Press
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn is set to become the next coach at Arkansas State. A person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press on Tuesday night, confirming earlier reports, that Malzahn will return to the state where he made a name for himself as a high school coach before leaving for college foot-
ball. Arkansas State has scheduled a 3:30 p.m. news conference on Wednesday to introduce its new coach. Former Red Wolves coach Hugh Freeze left the school last week to become the new coach at Mississippi. Arkansas State (10-2) will play Northern Illinois in the Godaddy.com Bowl on Jan. 8. The 46-year-old Malzahn has served as Auburn’s offensive
coordinator and quarterbacks coach for three seasons, helping the Tigers win the national championship last season. He won the Broyles Award last season, recognizing college football’s top assistant coach, and helped Auburn and quarterback Cam Newton set nine school records in 2010 — including points per game (41.2) and total offense (499.2). Malzahn began his coaching
career in northeast Arkansas at Hughes High School, eventually moving on and winning two state championships at the private school Shiloh Christian in Springdale, Ark. He later took over at Springdale High in the state’s largest classification, going 14-0 in 2005 and winning the state championship while finishing in the top five in most national high school polls.

fouling Amber Meredith, who goes on to flub another pair of free throws for Alcorn Central. Still no breathing room, truly a nail-biter. And with 12 seconds on the clock, Kossuth ends it on a missed three-pointer by Coleman, who closes the match with a game-high 19 points for a team that shot 20 of 39 on charity throws. One point killed them in the end.
As for the Alcorn girls, Foster was none too pleased watching the Lady Bears almost give away an otherwise well-played match. The Alcorn girls closed the night having shot nine of 25 from the free-throw line, with two starters and one secondary fouling out in the final three minutes of play. “You can bet yourself my girls will be shooting free throws ‘til their fingers fall off tomorrow,” said Foster.

Drivers in six series honored The champions of NASCAR’s lower-tier touring series were honored last week in Charlotte, N.C. The honorees included Max Gresham, champion of the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, Greg Pursley from the K&N Pro Series West, Scott Steckly from the Canadian Tire Series, German Quiroga from the NASCAR Mexico Series, Ron Silk of the Whelen Modified Tour, and George Brunnhoelzl III, the champion of the Whelen Southern Modified Tour. “These six series represent the future of our sport,” George Silbermann, NASCAR vice president, regional and touring series, said in presenting the awards. “There is some remarkable talent on hand … that provided close, exciting competition all season long.” Various other awards were handed out, and one had a familiar ring to it. Chase Elliott won the Most Popular Driver award for the K&N Pro Series East Division. His father Bill Elliott won the Most Popular Driver award in the Sprint Cup Series a record 16 times before he took his name off the ballot.

NASCAR CEO speaks out on ratings, rulings and going too far NASCAR Chairman Brian France recently met with reporters to discuss a variety of issues affecting the sport. Here are excerpts of his comment: On the recent uptick in interest in the sport and the rise in TV ratings for broadcasts of NASCAR races: “We’ve always said that ratings go up and down because of many, many things. The things we can control are showcasing the racing, telling our story and giving the drivers some big moments to race for. That will help us. You never know [what], percentage-wise, what really matters the most. “But we know that that’s the NASCAR we want. We want to see these elevated performances, and they’re just fun to watch. We want to see what’s happened. I’m confident if we do that, and do a lot of other things, we will have better ratings and better attendance.” On the secret fines imposed on drivers – Ryan Newman and Denny Hamlin in the past and most recently Brad Keselowski – who publicly criticized the sanctioning body: “In the last couple of years we’ve taken a position that drivers are going to be able to speak their mind and criticize the sport way more than any other sport would allow. So let’s start with that. “However, there have to be some limits. We thought those limits were being exceeded in the last couple of years, because you can’t denigrate the sport. You just can’t do that. We’re not going to accept that.
“Whether we make the fines public or private, we didn’t see a benefit to making them public. If there is some benefit to that, we’ll take a look at it. But that is the reasoning behind the penalties.” On the incident at Texas Motor Speedway between Kyle Busch and Ron Hornaday Jr. that led to Busch’s suspension for the weekend at Texas and how NASCAR determines when “have at it” retaliation reaches the level of intervention by officials: “There is a line, and the drivers, they may walk around and say sometimes that they’re not clear about it, but they know the line. “We have these conversations with them all the time. What you’ve got to remember is this is a contact sport … We thought a couple years ago that we were overregulating the events. We wanted to give more authority back in the drivers’ hands, and that’s been good for NASCAR. “But there is always a limit. You can’t do anything you want. We will look at it. We talked to the drivers. If they’re close to the line, we have a conversation that day. If they go over the line, we’ll deal with that, too. “So this idea that nobody knows where the line is, not true, not accurate.” On whether he wants to eliminate the two-car tandems at Daytona International Speedway and Talladega Superspeedway: “It is one of the things we are after. We would prefer to eliminate tandem racing in the manner it
exists today. There is no question about that. We are working on rolling back the clock to traditional Daytona, Talladega races. We’ll have to see how that goes. I think the majority of fans would like to see that, and so would we.” On why he doesn’t attend as many races and meet as often with the media as his father and grandfather did before him: “I frequently say, and I’ve said this before, if I thought that I was the last one out of every event, and I turn the light off on the way out, that that would grow the sport in some way, I would do it. “What we have is a different sport than it was 10, 15 years ago, and that’s real clear. I don’t publish my schedule, but it’s pretty busy. We feel like we’re managing the sport. We know we’re managing the sport the best way that we need to to grow the sport.” On the policy of allowing drivers to compete for championships in just one NASCAR division, which keeps Sprint Cup drivers from winning titles in the Nationwide Series: “I think it’s worked the way we want it to. We want to showcase the young drivers in their own series and still have the participation with drivers with a lot of experience. That’s exactly what we’ve gotten. “I think it’s been good for the young drivers to get some different notoriety. The honor and prestige of winning a championship and the money that comes with that and all the rest has been a good thing.”
On whether the Chase format will be tweaked again next year: “It’s possible. I don’t know. We take those ideas throughout the year. We really look at them as carefully as we can. Then what we do is we run them past the team owners and drivers and … everybody else in the industry in the off-season before we would do anything, and that’s exactly what we did last year going into this year.” On whether he might postpone the switch from carburetors to electronic fuel injection, which is set to begin at the start of the 2012 season: “We announced it several years ago. These are not the things that you can just pull off the shelf and put them back on and off. We have agreements with suppliers that have to be met. “You’ve got to remember why we are doing that. [It’s] because we want to be more relevant to the car manufacturers and other green technologies as well. We always said that we will do that in a balanced way. We’re not going to be like some other divisions around the world that are heavily emphasized on that on technology. “But we’re going to have to do more than we did in the past. It’s not because we feel like doing it or want to put additional costs on anyone, but because they’re accepting a lot of money from the car manufacturers, and that’s what’s under the hood on cars today, and we have to be mindful of that as we make policy.”
For those keeping a scorecard of NASCAR crew chiefs and driver swaps, a pencil might come in handy. It seems that few relationships are permanent in the pressure-packed world of Sprint Cup racing. In the past week, Darian Grubb, who was released after he led Tony Stewart’s No. 14 team to the 2011 Sprint Cup championship, landed at Joe Gibbs Racing, where he’s replacing Mike Ford, who led Denny Hamlin to 17 wins and five points finishes inside the top 10 in the past six seasons. “Darian is a great addition to our organization and the person to lead our No. 11 FedEx team,” owner Joe Gibbs said in a team release. “Obviously, he has proven the ability to guide a team to a championship, and we are excited to have him working with Denny [Hamlin] toward achieving that goal here at Joe Gibbs Racing.” Grubb, who was notified of his impending dismissal back in October, led Tony Stewart’s team to 11 victories, including five of the 10 races in this year’s Chase. He also was the crew chief for Casey Mears when he won the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte in 2007, and he won two races, including the Daytona 500, while filling in for the suspended Chad Knaus at Jimmie Johnson’s team in 2006. Grubbs’ old spot with Stewart’s No. 14 team is being filled by Steve Addington, who left the No. 22 team at Penske Racing before driver Kurt Busch parted ways with that team. Over at Michael Waltrip Racing, Brian Pattie has been hired to crew chief Clint Bowyer’s No. 15 Toyota. Pattie spent the past several seasons as crew chief for Juan Pablo Montoya, and the team made the Chase in 2009 and won at Watkins Glen in 2010. His old job at Chip Ganassi’s team has been filled by Chris Heroy, who most recently was the top engineer for both Mark Martin and Dale Earnhardt Jr. at Hendrick Motorsports.

Deck the halls: Holiday light attractions help speedways keep coffers full If you’re driving by Atlanta Motor Speedway this month, you might get the idea that track president Ed Clark has the same passion for Christmas lights as the fictional Clark Griswold of “Christmas Vacation” fame. The speedway has been converted into a millionlight display known as the “Gift of Lights.” For $15 per carload, visitors can drive through the speedway facility, under the main grandstands, around behind the Elliott Grandstand and up on top of the camping area – that once was the Nelson Weaver Grandstand – all the while listening to Christmas music on their car’s radio and enjoying a lighting display of more than 200 different features totaling approximately one million bulbs. Like lots of other things in NASCAR, many of the AMS lighting displays are put there with the backing of corporate sponsors. Joining in on the light show bandwagon this year are two other tracks under the Speedway Motorsports umbrella – Texas Motor Speedway and New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Bristol Motor Speedway is on its 15th year of displaying Christmas lights. It typically draws about 125,000 people a year, with all the proceeds benefitting the Bristol Chapter of Speedway Children’s Charities. But light shows aren’t just a speedway’s way of sharing in the holiday spirit. For most NASCAR tracks, things like light displays are part of what they do to keep revenue flowing in on the 50 or 51 weeks of the year when there are no Sprint Cup cars on the track. Clark said that while the NASCAR weekends bring in about 80 to 85 percent of the total revenue generated by his race track each year, the other events are critical to keeping the facilities in top condition.
Ed Clark (AMS photo) “We have 887 acres, two garages, a media center and a lot of other buildings to maintain, so the nonSprint Cup revenue is critical to us,” he said, adding that his track employs 61 people full-time, 22 of which are in the operation department. And he’s also dealing with the fact that after having at least two NASCAR weekends a year since 1960, the track is down to one. “This place eats money whether we’re racing or not.” As part of the expansion of its operating plan, AMS has been hosting races for Legends cars for years as well as a Friday Night Drags program, where participants drag race down pit road. Music concerts are held at the track along with circus shows, gun shows, private parties and ride-anddrive events in which participants get to ride
around the track in specially modified race cars. Occasionally, the facility serves as a production location for the TV and film industry. Earlier this year, scenes from “The Walking Dead” were shot at AMS. Among the more successful regular rentals is one in which the NASCAR garages are used for a clothing consignment sale. Participants turn out as if Dale Earnhardt Jr. were holding an autograph session. “They’ll line up all the way to the tunnel to get in,” Clark said. In years past, Clark and his staff basically sat back and waited for potential renters to come to them. But in today’s economic climate, they’re out soliciting business. Among the latest offerings is a program where Atlanta-based companies that can no longer afford to fly people to places like Las Vegas for a meeting can come to AMS and hold a team-building session that includes some time on the quarter-mile track driving Legends cars. “We think there’s a market for it,” Clark said of his track’s latest venture. “Companies can do this, and the people can stay home and sleep in their own beds.” The veteran track president said that ultimately he’d like to have a second or third major revenuegenerating event to complement his Labor Day weekend NASCAR races, but it’ll have to be something innovative and something that corporate sponsors would support. He’s considered events centered around things like barbecue, music or even hot-air balloons, but at present none of the ideas under consideration include auto racing. “I don’t see a racing event that makes sense,” he said.

Congressional redistricting case moves ahead BY JEFF AMY Associated Press
JACKSON — Republicans and Democrats continue to fight over moving Adams and Wilkinson counties in southwest Mississippi from the 3rd Congressional District to the 2nd. That dispute looms large in the latest filings in a federal court case which is likely to produce new lines for Mississippi’s four U.S. House districts. Attorney General Jim Hood dropped remaining objections to a three-judge panel’s redrawing district lines, after the Legislature failed to propose a plan by Dec. 4. By a Monday deadline, no one else objected in court to the judges handling the task, clearing the way for them to act.
The judges must equalize population among the four districts, which will mean shifting a large number of people into the 2nd District, represented by Democrat Bennie Thompson. New lines are required every 10 years after Census results are released to reflect population shifts. Each of the state’s four congressional districts should have 741,824 people. After 10 years under the current plan, northeast Mississippi’s 1st District is heavily overpopulated, with 788,095 people or 6.2 percent above ideal, according to court filings. The 2nd District, centered in the Delta and Jackson, had 668,263 people, 9.9 percent below ideal. Cen-
tral Mississippi’s 3rd District and south Mississippi’s 4th are slightly above the ideal. Republican U.S. Rep. Gregg Harper and Thompson were unable to agree on a map, which was one reason the Legislature failed to act. Thompson doesn’t want to add Adams and Wilkinson to his district, which is already about 200 miles long. Republicans want to move Adams and Wilkinson from Harper’s district to Thompson’s, making Harper’s district more compact. A group including state Rep. Kelvin Buck, D-Holly Springs, filed a new suit proposing its own congressional map, supported by Thompson. The new lawsuit appears likely to
be consolidated into the main 10-year-old suit that the Republican Party revived. Gov. Haley Barbour and Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann, both Republicans, supported the move. That plan, which has now been slightly amended, would move all of Panola County and most of Grenada County from the 1st District to the 2nd. It would shift precincts in Leake, Madison and Hinds counties between the 2nd and the 3rd, but leave those counties split. Finally, the plan would move more of Marion County from the 4th to the 3rd, but leave the county split. The state Republican Party objected to that plan, saying that putting
all the counties along the Mississippi River together would make more sense. “The Buck complaint does not suggest any historical or regional interests which would support expanding the 2nd District eastward instead of southward,” lawyer Michael Wallace wrote for the GOP. “The community of interest among the rural counties along the Mississippi River has been repeatedly recognized by court decisions extending back over three decades.” Republicans suggested the 2nd District should begin with a slightly larger number of residents, since many counties it contains have been consistently declining in population. Hosemann urged the judges not to adopt a map
by Buck or anyone else, but to draw their own, saying that any map not drawn by the judges would require clearance by the U.S. Justice Department. He warned that the clearance process, which takes 60 days or longer, would mean that a map wouldn’t be ready before the Jan. 13 date to qualify for the March 13 congressional primaries. Federal judges have said they plan to draw a new map quickly and then seek comments. The court already ordered the state GOP to buy redistricting software for the judges to use. The judges said the software could not be bought with court money, and the Republican Party eventually might be reimbursed for the purchase.
Police say dog fighting ring found
barking dogs. WLOX-TV says Biloxi police discovered 26 dogs in the woods behind two vacant mobile homes and it appears to be a place where dogs are raised for fighting. Several of the animals have bite injuries consistent with dog fighting. One investigator describes the conditions as “deplorable.” The animals were to be taken to the Harrison County farm, since the humane society of South Mississippi cannot accept animals because of a minor fire Monday. Most of the dogs are pit bulls and are attached to heavy chains.

SOUTHAVEN — A man accused of robbing a north Mississippi bank in 2010 is scheduled for sentencing in January. Christopher Wayne Gable pleaded guilty in July to robbing the Wachovia Bank in Southaven in March 2010. He was convicted of the robbery in which he walked into the bank and handed a teller a note that demanded cash. His sentencing is set for Jan.6 in U.S. District court in Aberdeen.
No animals hurt in shelter fire
animal shelter damaged by fire Monday night in Gulfport. The building had extensive smoke and water damage, but no animals were seriously hurt when in the fire at the Humane Society of South Mississippi. Krystyna Szczechowski, a marketing specialist, said the shelter usually charges $50 to $100 for adoption fees, but the donor will pick up those costs. “The anonymous donor’s help is a blessing,” she said. The shelter also announced it has stopped taking in animals until officials can assess fire damages. The shelter has been housing about 245 animals, with about 170 of those available for adoption. The others are stray pets or are being held in the shelter in court dis-
putes. “In light of what could have been a real tragedy, we are thankful that no one was harmed, both two-legged and four,” said Tara High, the shelter’s executive director. “But now we have to go down a road of recovery and like many of the challenges we have faced before, we know the community will help and support us during this time of crisis.” Five trucks and 16 firefighters responded to the blaze on 25th Avenue, Chief Michael Beyerstedt said. He investigated the fire and thinks it started when hot laundry touched a plastic bag. David Waltman, direction of operations for the Humane Society, said an employee was checking the doors and “thank God she did. That’s when she found the fire.”

Operations halt at some ports Associated Press
OAKLAND, Calif. — Heady with their successful attempts to block trucks and curb business at busy ports up and down the West Coast, some Occupy Wall Street protesters plan to continue their blockades and keep staging similar protests despite requests to stop because they’re hurting wage earners. Thousands of demonstrators forced shipping terminals in Oakland, Calif., Portland, Ore., and Longview, Wash., to halt parts of their operations Monday. At least one outside observer who has followed political movements for decades said the port blockades were an indicator of the disruptive activities likely to continue for months
and right until next year’s presidential elections. The movement, which sprang up this fall against what it sees as corporate greed and economic inequality, focused on the ports as the “economic engines for the elite.” It comes weeks after police raids cleared out most of their tent camps. Protesters are most upset by two West Coast companies: port operator SSA Marine and grain exporter EGT. Investment banking giant Goldman Sachs Group Inc. owns a major stake in SSA Marine and has been a frequent target of protesters. Demonstrators say they are standing up for workers against the port companies, which have had recent highprofile clashes with union

workers. Longshoremen in Longview, for example, have had a longstanding dispute with EGT, which employs workers from a different union to staff its terminal. The longshoremen’s union says the jobs rightfully belong to them. In Oakland, some 1,000 protesters vowed to at the port overnight, but the crowd had shrunk to around 150 by 9:30 p.m. Monday, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Tuesday. While the protests attracted far fewer people than the 10,000 who turned out Nov. 2 to shut down Oakland’s port, organizers declared victory and promised more demonstrations. “Mission accomplished,” said protest organizer Boots Riley. Mike King, another Occupy Oakland organizer, said demonstrators had voted to remain at the port until at least 3 a.m. Tuesday to block any sudden shifts of longshoremen to offload the three ships that were neglected Monday. KGO-TV reported that the 3 a.m. shift was canceled because of the demonstrators, who at least later in the morning, were no longer at the port. Two people were arrested in Oakland during morning protests for impeding traffic after ignoring orders to clear a gate, said interim Police Chief Howard Jordan. Oakland Mayor Jean Quan pleaded with the occupiers to go home and allow the longshoremen and truckers get on with their livelihoods. “People have to think about the consequences,” she said. “People have to think about who they are hurting. They are saying, ‘We want to get the atten-

tion of the ruling class.’ Well, I think the ruling class is probably laughing, and people in this city will be crying this Christmas. It’s really got to stop.” Police in Seattle used “flash-bang” percussion grenades to disperse protesters who blocked an entrance to a Port of Seattle and 11 demonstrators were arrested. Officers moved in Monday evening after Occupy Seattle protesters tried to set up a makeshift barrier near the entrances to two terminals, using scraps of wood and aluminum debris. Police Detective Jeff Kappel said demonstrators blocked traffic and hurled flares, bags of paint and other debris at officers and police horses. He said one officer was treated by medics after a bag of paint hit his face. In Portland, a couple hundred protesters blocked semitrailers from making deliveries at two major terminals. Security concerns were raised when police found two people in camouflage clothing with a gun, sword and walkie-talkies who said they were doing reconnaissance. In Alaska, Occupy Anchorage protesters showed solidarity with their West Coast counterparts by focusing on port issues, though they took a different tack in Alaska’s largest city. Rather than try to shut down the port — which is only open two days a week and Monday was not one of them — protesters assembled to highlight what they said was mismanagement and the proposed expansion of the Port of Anchorage, which handles most goods consumed by Alaskans.
Briefs Police say fake bills were copies SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — It didn’t take special training for workers in South Dakota to spot the fake $20 bills that were being passed off as real money this week. Police say the phony bills were simply low-tech color photocopies. Sioux Falls police spokesman Sam Clemens says the reason someone was able to get away with passing off about $200 worth of the bills is that he wrapped the phony ones inside of a real one, then rushed out the door before employees could stop him. The bills were used at more than a halfdozen businesses before police arrested a suspect — inside a hotel room he allegedly paid for, in part, with a fake bill.
Deputy back on job after shooting screen SEVIERVILLE, Tenn. — A veteran deputy with the Sevier County Sheriff’s Office is back on the job — with a firearms refresher course completed — after he accidentally fired a shot inside a convenience store. Cpl. Chris Huskey was demonstrating a Glock pistol to Deputy Adam Bohanan at Dunn’s Market on Nov. 23 when the weapon discharged, firing a bullet through a computer monitor and the wall of a walk-in freezer, where it lodged in a pack of frozen bologna. No one else was in the store at the time and neither officer was hurt, according to The Mountain Press.
’Can I have my weed back?’ BEAVER, Pa. — A defense attorney’s argument that a bag of marijuana uncovered during a Pennsylvania traffic stop could have belonged to a man other than his client has unraveled after an arresting officer recalled the suspect asking him: “Can I have my weed back?” Nineteen-year-old Devonte Davon Jeter was one of four men in a car stopped by Midland police on May 13. Jeter’s attorney said Monday that the marijuana could have belonged to any one of the men in the car.

Bernstein says Hunter believed she had no choice but to be a part of the hazing within the famed Marching 100 band.

Corzine says he never authorized â€™misuseâ€™ of money BY DANIEL WAGNER AND MARCY GORDON Associated Press
WASHINGTON â€” Questioned by senators he once served with, Jon Corzine told a panel Tuesday that he never told anyone to â€œmisuseâ€? customer money that vanished when MF Global collapsed this fall. An estimated $1.2 billion in client funds are missing. Senators demanded that Corzine and two other executives from the securities firm explain who authorized the transfer of money in the days before the firm became the eighth-largest bankruptcy in U.S. history. â€œI never gave any instruction to anyone at MF Global to misuse customer funds,â€? Corzine testified at a hearing of the Senate Agriculture Committee. Corzine, a former Democratic New Jersey senator and governor, resigned as CEO of the securities firm last month. Bradley Abelow, the firmâ€™s president and chief operating officer, and Henri Steenkamp, the chief financial officer, also tried at the hearing to dis-
tance themselves from any decision to transfer customersâ€™ money. Brokers are required to keep client money separate from company funds. All three witnesses said they donâ€™t know where the money is. Yet their phrasing varied in subtle ways that could have legal distinctions. Corzine said he did not direct anyone to â€œmisuseâ€? clientsâ€™ money. Abelow said he does not recall â€œany conversation about customer funds being used for anything other than their intended purpose.â€? Steenkampâ€™s stance was more sweeping. He said he did not â€œauthorize, approve or know of any transfers of customer fundsâ€? out of their accounts. Depending on the circumstances, transferring money from customersâ€™ accounts could violate securities laws and, in some cases, could amount to a crime. Federal authorities have begun criminal investigations. And regulators are looking into whether the firm broke
interviewing MF Global employees, â€œasking for an accounting of checks and balances â€” who was in charge.â€? Added Sen. Mike Johanns, R-Neb.: â€œSomebody in this organization had to have the ability to say, â€˜Lightâ€™s green, take the money.â€?â€™ Corzine and Steenkamp said that given whatâ€™s now known, they wouldnâ€™t have signed the firmâ€™s last quarterly financial statement attesting that its internal financial controls were adequate. Under a 2002 anticorporate-fraud law that Corzine co-wrote as a U.S. senator, the CEO and chief financial officer of public companies must personally certify the accuracy of their companyâ€™s financial statements. It can be a violation of the law for executives to sign a false statement. MF Global collapsed after a disastrous bet on European debt spooked its investors, customers and trading partners. The three executives say that they didnâ€™t become aware of the shortfall until
securities rules. â€œFunds donâ€™t simply disappear,â€? said Kansas Sen. Pat Roberts, the committeeâ€™s top Republican. â€œSomeone took action, whether legal or illegal, to move that money. And the effect of that decision is being felt across the countryside.â€? Roberts said MF Global violated â€œa sacred rule of the futures industry,â€? under which customersâ€™ money remains segregated from the firmâ€™s. â€œYou donâ€™t break the glass in regards to segregated funds,â€? Roberts said. As the senators drilled into who might have authorized the transfer of funds, Corzine pointed to the role of the firmâ€™s treasury operations department. â€œThe people who headed that were probably closest to the scene of the action,â€? he said. Roberts noted that the department ultimately reported to Abelow. The committee is continuing its investigation of MF Global. Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., said staffers are
hours before the firm filed for bankruptcy protection on Oct. 31. Tuesdayâ€™s hearing included an added element of intrigue: Corzine was pressed by some of the senators he served with from 2001 through 2005. The Senate panel is one of three congressional committees to have issued subpoenas to compel Corzineâ€™s testimony on the issue. It marked the first time a former senator has been subpoe-
naed by his former peers in more than 100 years, according to the Senate historianâ€™s office. Many lawmakers have heard from farmers, ranchers and small business owners in their states who are missing money that was deposited with the firm. Agricultural businesses use brokerage firms like MF Global to help reduce their risks in an industry vulnerable to swings in oil, corn and other commodity prices.

NTSB recommends ban on driver cell phone use BY JOAN LOWY Associated Press
WASHINGTON — States should ban all driver use of cell phones and other portable electronic devices, except in emergencies, the National Transportation Board said Tuesday. The recommendation, unanimously agreed to by the five-member board, applies to both hands-free and handheld phones and significantly exceeds any existing state laws restricting texting and cellphone use behind the wheel. The board made the recommendation in connection with a deadly highway pileup in Missouri last year. The board said the initial collision in the accident near Gray Summit, Mo., was caused by the inattention of a 19 year-old-pickup driver who sent or received 11
texts in the 11 minutes immediately before the crash. The pickup, traveling at 55 mph, collided into the back of a tractor truck that had slowed for highway construction. The pickup was rear-ended by a school bus that overrode the smaller vehicle. A second school bus rammed into the back of the first bus. The pickup driver and a 15-year-old student on one of the school buses were killed. Thirty-eight other people were injured in the Aug. 5, 2010, accident near Gray Summit, Mo. About 50 students, mostly members of a high school band from St. James, Mo., were on the buses heading to the Six Flags St. Louis amusement park. The accident is a “big red flag for all drivers,”
“No call, no text, no update is worth a human life.”
A recent survey many drivers don’t think it’s dangerous when “they” do it — only when others do.
Deborah Hersman NTSB chairman NTSB chairman Deborah Hersman said at a meeting to determine the cause of the accident and make safety recommendations. It’s not possible to know from cell phone records if the driver was typing, reaching for the phone or reading a text at the time of the crash, but it’s clear he was manually, cognitively and visually distracted, she said. “Driving was not his only priority,” Hersman said. “No call, no text, no update is worth a human life.” The board is expected to recommend new restrictions on driver use of electronic devices behind the wheel. While the NTSB doesn’t have the power to impose restrictions, it’s recommendations carry significant weight with federal regulators and congressional and state lawmakers. Missouri had a law banning drivers under 21 years old from texting while driving at the time of the crash, but wasn’t aggressively enforcing the ban, board member Robert Sumwalt said. “Without the enforcement, the laws don’t mean a whole lot,” he said. Investigators are seeing texting, cell phone calls and other distracting behavior by operators in accidents across all modes of transportation with increasing frequency. It has become routine for investigators to immediately request the preservation of cell phone and texting records when they launch an investigation.
In the last few years the board has investigated a commuter rail accident that killed 25 people in California in which the train engineer was texting; a fatal marine accident in Philadelphia in which a tugboat pilot was talking on his cellphone and using a laptop; and a Northwest Airlines flight that flew more than 100 miles past its destination because both pilots were working on their laptops. The board has previously recommended bans on texting and cell phone use by commercial truck and bus drivers and beginning drivers, but it has stopped short of calling for a ban on the use of the devices by adults behind the wheel of passenger cars. The problem of texting while driving is getting worse despite a rush by states to ban the practice, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said last week. In November, Pennsylvania became the 35th state to forbid texting while driving. About two out of 10 American drivers overall — and half of drivers between 21 and 24 — say they’ve thumbed messages or emailed from the driver’s seat, according to a survey of more than 6,000 drivers by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. And what’s more, many drivers don’t think it’s dangerous when they do it — only when others do, the survey found. At any given moment last year on America’s streets and highways, nearly 1 in every 100 car drivers was texting,
Investigators are seeing texting, cell phone calls and other distracting behavior by operators in accidents across all modes of transportation with increasing frequency. emailing, surfing the Web or otherwise using a handheld electronic device, the safety administration said. And those activities spiked 50 percent over the previous year. The agency takes an annual snapshot of drivers’ behavior behind the wheel by staking out intersections to count people using cellphones and other devices, as well as other distracting behavior. Driver distraction wasn’t the only significant safety problem uncovered by NTSB’s investigation of the Missouri accident. Investigators said they believe the pickup driver was suffering from fatigue that may have eroded his judgment at the time of the accident. He had an average of about five and a half hours of sleep a night in the days leading up to the accident and had had fewer than five hours of sleep the night before the accident, they said. The pickup driver had no history of accidents or traffic violations, investigators said. Investigators also found significant problems with the brakes of both school buses involved in the accident. A third school bus sent to a hospital after the accident to pick up students crashed in the hospital

parking lot when that bus’ brakes failed. However, the brake problems didn’t cause or contribute to the severity of the accident, investigators said. Another issue involved the difficulty passengers had exiting the first school bus after the accident. The bus’ front and rear bus doors were unusable after the accident — the front door because the front bus was on top of the tractor truck cab and too high off the ground, and the rear door because the front of the bus had intruded five feet into the rear of the first bus. Passengers had to exit through an emergency window, but the raised latch on the window kept catching on clothing as students tried to escape, investigators said. Exiting was further slowed because the window design required one person to hold the window up in order for a second person to crawl through, they said. It was critical for passengers to exit as quickly as possible because a large amount of fuel puddled underneath the bus was a serious fire hazard, investigators said. “It could have been a much worse situation if there was a fire,” Donald Karol, the NTSB’s highway safety director, said.

Traditional poinsettias bring Christmas cheer Besides the Christmas tree, the poinsettia is the plant most often Gary associated Bachman with the Christmas Southern season. Gardening You can hardly go wrong with their colorful bracts brightening your decorations. The color spectrum of poinsettia is truly remarkable. Colors range from red to white to even maroon, making it hard to choose favorites. There are bicolored, speckled and marbled poinsettias. And if that’s not enough, growers are even painting leaves and adding glitter. When shopping for poinsettias, be aware of the wide variety available. Take your time to select the very best. Poinsettias are fragile plants, and the stems can break quite easily from mishandling. Be aware that the paper or plastic shipping sleeves around most poinsettias can hide damage that happened in transport. Pay particular attention when removing them; never try to slide the sleeve off because you could damage the plant. Always tear or cut the sleeve off. The bracts should be completely colored and fully expanded. If they aren’t, the plants were probably shipped before they were completely ready. Growers and florists have been using poinsettias in combination containers in recent years. Poinsettia combination containers sometimes feature contrasting colors, such as snow white

We at Southern Gardening recommend combining poinsettia with the Mississippi Medallion winner Diamond Frost euphorbia. Both are in the euphorbia family and have similar growing characteristics and care needs. The following care tips can help keep your poinsettia looking good long after the Christmas holidays.

at night. The closer you can provide to these same temperatures, the longer your poinsettia will last. Don’t let the leaves or bracts touch the window glass. Outside temperatures are readily transferred through the glass, and the cold can damage the plant. A poinsettia might look great by the front door when guests arrive, but it will perform better if it is shielded from the sudden temperature changes caused by open doors. While poinsettias like
cool temperatures, those below 50 degrees will harm the foliage and colorful bracts. So on the way home after purchasing your plants, be sure to have the new poinsettias carefully covered, taking care not to break any branches and stems. Probably the most important thing to remember is not to overwater these plants. Poinsettias are sensitive to wet feet, and root rot will set in very quickly. The potting mix should feel dry to the touch before watering,
and be sure the decorative sleeve has drainage holes. Some people are sensitive to the milky, latex sap in the poinsettia and may develop a skin rash. To avoid this problem, always wash your hands after handling your poinsettia. So pick plenty of your favorite poinsettia colors, and use them to brighten the Christmas season.

HOUSEWIFE DEAR DESPERATE: As an educated woman, it’s time for you to smarten up and accept your mother-in-law for the “character” she is — warts and all. You were wrong to expect her to fulfill the fantasy role you created for her. She’s not ready to do it — and she may never be. The way she dresses will not influence your daughter; you will do that. Your mother-inlaw’s attire is a reflection only on her, not you. Remember that. If she is so youthful in spirit that she has been accepted by a younger group of women, stop judging her and perhaps even learn from it.
She’s not over the hill yet. So stop trying to push her there, and you’ll both be happier. DEAR ABBY: My husband, “Joe,” and I have been married for 12 years. I have a daughter from a previous marriage and he has a son from a previous relationship. My daughter is married and lives in another state. My 22-year-old stepson, “Junior,” lives with us. He has a history of drug and alcohol abuse and has stolen from us. I recently discovered that another item of mine was missing. I told Joe it has to stop — that I can’t live like a prisoner in my own home. Joe will not kick Junior out of the house.
Joe said he would leave, but that he won’t put Junior out on the street like a dog. Our marriage was solid until Junior’s problems started a year ago. I’d never ask my husband to make a choice. Junior is his son. I, on the other hand, feel like a stranger in my own home. We barely speak now and have been sleeping in separate rooms. I am at a loss. Abby, have you any advice? — STRANGER IN MY OWN HOME DEAR STRANGER: Yes. You and your husband should consult a therapist who specializes in treating addictions. Your husband loves his son, but he is enabling
him to continue using by turning a blind eye to his stealing and not enforcing consequences. Sometimes love has to be tough. Because your marriage has deteriorated to the point that you no longer speak or share a bedroom, recognize that you must look out for your own welfare because your husband seems unwilling or unable to.

Horoscopes by Holiday BY HOLIDAY MATHIS Everyone enjoys a good story, and the Leo moon has a stellar sense of dramatic pacing. Even the most mundane information can be delivered in a manner that adds suspense. If you are inclined to be flirtatious, your natural abilities will shine during this transit. Mercury, now direct, warms up the audience with a harmonious trine to Uranus. ARIES (March 21-April 19). Much will depend on what kind of friend you are. Try to think ahead about what a friend might need from you. Also consider the expectations you’ve already set up and how you’ll deliver on them, or not. TAURUS (April 20May 20). You want to have a good time and be a big contributor to the social swirl, but you have so much on your mind that social goings-on might not seem like a huge priority. GEMINI (May 21June 21). Buried pain
has a way of staying buried until someone clever acts as a kind of metal detector to remind you where the heavy elements are hidden. A Scorpio or Cancer person could serve this purpose for you. CANCER (June 22July 22). You accept that you have created your experience, and now you wonder whether it’s quite the way you meant it to be. Something definitive will happen to let you know whether it’s working for you or not. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Where you spend your time will be crucial to the way relationships develop or don’t. Go where you’re sure to be in the mix with all the players who are in your game. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your word is good. You’ll knock yourself out to make sure you do what you say you’ll do. It’s part of why you’re confident: You trust yourself to deliver, and others trust you, too. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). So many people don’t think about the details, but you do, and it gives you an advantage. Because you are con-
cerned about the initial impression you make on others, you’ll come across even better than you intended. SCORPIO (Oct. 24Nov. 21). Sometimes you forget to use your position to share yourself fully with others. Today you’ll take the responsibility to heart. You’ll be warm when others are distant. Instead of breaking the ice, you’ll melt it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Every adventure involves an element of danger. If there is no danger, it might be an exciting experience, but it’s not really an adventure. You’re in the mood to take on risks
and adventure. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll be involved in a group effort and will be very aware of the fact that your friends are also your teammates. Try to develop a strategy that will allow everyone to win together. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18). In order to be a superstar in any area of the world, you have to get involved in every aspect of it. You’ll dive for deeper knowledge and also for adjacent information. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Some of your greatest triumphs will happen because of the particular way you pick yourself up after a
fall. Knowing this, you’re not afraid to slip up, and you’ll radiate the kind of confidence that makes mistakes less frequent. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 14). You’ll build your network of supporters, friends and customers. Your relationship with yourself is the most important one you’ll nurture. You’ll find new reasons and ways to appreciate who you are, grow your talents and care for yourself on every level. January unites lovers. February brings a financial breakthrough. Pisces and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 14, 2, 4 and 25.

Mississippi kids benefit from in-state program BY MICHAELA GIBSON MORRIS Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal
TUPELO — Bryon Pounders and Georgia Grace Thurlow were born with broken hearts. The Golden toddler and the Starkville tween are thriving, growing children because of advances in pediatric heart surgery. Before April 2010, getting treatment for their congenital heart defects would have sent them across the country for specialized surgery. A new robust congenital surgery program at the Blair E. Batson Children’s Hospital at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson has given them new options. In a year and a half, the heart program has completed about 400 surgical cases with a 98 percent success rate, said congenital heart surgeon Dr. Jorge Salazar, who was recruited from Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston to restart the program. The national average is about 95 percent. The hospital also resumed pediatric heart transplants last month. “We’re already one of the larger programs in the country,” Salazar said. “We’re thrilled to be able to offer the highest standard of care in our own state.” The program uses a team concept to care for the children, many of whom have complex heart defects. It’s about more than just the surgeon and the operating room team, Salazar said. The care patients get before and after surgery is just as crucial to achieving good outcomes. It’s a long-term commitment because many of the children will need follow-up
care for the rest of their lives. “Each team member is really critical,” Salazar said. “Every single link has to be strong.” The program has added a second heart surgeon and pediatric intensivist, but the nurses, therapists and technicians are all from Mississippi. “Mississippi already had excellent clinicians,” Salazar said. “We started the program with people who are already here.” Having a program close to home with highly regarded staff delivers peace of mind for families of children with congenital heart defects. “They need to know it’s not scary; maybe a little at first,” said Georgia Grace Thurlow, 10, who had her third open heart surgery this summer. “But when you have good doctors, good surgeons and good nurses, you know it’s going to be all right.” Byron Pounders was born with multiple heart defects and has been through four surgeries, including three open heart procedures, in his short life. “Now he’s singing, and trying to walk,” said mom Nanette Pounders. This year, Bryon will get to open presents under his own tree with Mom, dad Byron, and siblings DJ, 18; Lacey, 15; and Haven, 2. “Last year, we had Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years in the hospital,” Nanette Pounders said. A routine sonogram revealed something was wrong with the baby’s heart. By design, she delivered at UMMC, so Bryon could get care for the heart defects immediately. Instead of having a pulmonary artery which takes blood to the lungs
to get oxygen, and an aorta which takes oxygen-rich blood to the rest of the body, Bryon was born with one vessel that combined the two. That meant too much blood was going to his lungs, and not enough blood was getting out to the rest of his body. The arteries were also narrowed. “Within a week to 10 days, he would have been very sick,” Pounders said. The first surgery when Bryon was 8 days old repaired the anatomy of his heart, although the artificial conduit will have to be replaced as he grows. A second surgery added a pacemaker. A third defect, Shone’s Syndrome, which affects the heart’s valves, didn’t become apparent immediately and is very unusual to have in combination with the other defects. The third surgery replaced the mitral valve affected by Shone’s. “Dr. Salazar said it was like getting hit by lightning,” Nanette Pounders said of the odds. Bryon needed a fourth surgery to help his digestive tract work more efficiently. During those long months, Nanette Pounders stayed with Bryon in Jackson; daughter Lacey spent most of that period in Jackson, too, so her mom could continue her home-schooling studies. Dad Byron, who had to return to work, came every weekend. Family helped care for Haven, who came to visit frequently. Oldest brother DJ, who works in Louisiana, visited as he could. “We had to do what we had to do,” Pounders said. When Byron came home in January he was not quite 9 pounds; now he’s 19 pounds and healthy. He’ll likely need another surgery between
the ages of 4 and 7, but he’ll be watched closely as he grows. “With heart babies, nothing’s written in stone,” Pounders said. There’s nothing about Georgia Grace that would suggest she has a heart defect. She loves art, bikes and horseback riding. “I’ve just been a regular kid,” she said. Nearly 11 years ago, the Thurlow family of Starkville didn’t have advanced warning of a heart defect when Georgia Grace came into the world. Mom Mel Thurlow ended up having a Caesarean section because Georgia Grace was breech. “Little did we know that it saved her life,” Mel Thurlow said. “That was the first miracle.” At her 5-day checkup, the doctor identified a heart murmur and sent the family to Jackson for a consult with a pediatric cardiologist. Georgia was diagnosed with a complex heart defect with four distinct problems: a large hole in the wall of her heart allowing blood with and without oxygen to mix, her aorta was in the wrong place, the pulmonary valve and artery were restricted, and the right ventricle got too thick from working so hard to get blood into the pulmonary artery. “It was the most difficult day of our lives,” Mel Thurlow said. Days later, UMMC surgeons installed a shunt to help Georgia Grace’s heart operate more efficiently until she had grown big enough for a repair. When she was 6 months old, the family was sent to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia for the major repair. For nearly 10 years, Georgia Grace passed her follow-up visits with fly-
ing colors. In June, doctors found that a leaky pulmonary valve, which is common to her defect repair, needed to be replaced. “It’s not what we wanted to hear,” Mel Thurlow said. This time, her cardiologist, Dr. Jennifer Shore, who had recommended Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia for the first surgery, pointed them toward the congenital heart surgery program at Blair E. Batson. “Mel asked the Mom question, ‘What would you do if it was your child?”’ father Bill Thurlow said. “Dr. Shore said ‘I’d stay right here.’ That’s quite a statement.” Georgia Grace has done well with her new valve, which came from a cow. Brother Mason, 9, likes to tease her that the doctors will now hear her
heart moo. She had to wait a few months to go back to biking and riding horses while her sternum fully healed. The family was able to take a beach vacation a month after the surgery, and she didn’t miss any school because of the surgery. The biggest difference in their experience was being surrounded by friends and family during the surgery and the recovery, the Thurlows said. Georgia Grace’s best friend since preschool was able to visit as she recovered. “It means a lot to have family and friends at your side during such a difficult time,” Mel Thurlow said. “I truly believe it helped speed Georgia Grace’s recovery. Had we been in Philadelphia again, it wouldn’t have been an option.”

Attorney general vows to enforce civil rights protections Associated Press
WASHINGTON â€” Attorney General Eric Holder vowed Tuesday to fully enforce civil rights protections in next yearâ€™s elections amid a flurry of activity by states to redraw political boundaries and impose requirements that could reduce voting by minorities who enthusiastically supported Barack Obama in the 2008 election. Giving his most expansive speech on civil rights since taking office, the nationâ€™s chief law enforcement officer declared that â€œwe need election systems
that are free from fraud, discrimination and partisan influence â€” and that are more, not less, accessible to the citizens of this country.â€? He urged the country to â€œcall on our political parties to resist the temptation to suppress certain votes in the hope of attaining electoral success.â€? â€œInstead, encourage and work with the parties to achieve this success by appealing to more voters,â€? Holder said in remarks prepared for an appearance in Austin, Texas. Currently, the Justice
Department is reviewing new requirements in Texas and South Carolina requiring voters to produce a photo ID before casting ballots. The department also is examining changes that Florida has made to its electoral process â€” imposing financial penalties on third-party voter registration organizations like the League of Women Voters when they miss deadlines and shortening the number of days in the early voting period before elections. Most of the changes
have been promoted and approved by Republicans, who argue they are needed to avert voter fraud. Democrats, citing studies suggesting there is little voter fraud, say the measures are actually aimed at reducing minority votes for their candidates. Where a state canâ€™t meet its legal burden in showing an absence of discriminatory impact, â€œwe will object,â€? the attorney general said in his speech at the Lyndon Baines Johnson Presidential Library and Museum. As

from the polls â€” from literacy tests and poll taxes, to misinformation campaigns telling people that Election Day has been moved, or that only one adult per household can cast a ballot,â€? said Holder. In light of that history, the attorney general announced he supports Democratic-sponsored legislation that would require stiff criminal penalties for distributing false communications such as the wrong date or time for elections, giving inaccurate information about voter eligibility or promoting false endorsements of candidates.

Most of the 16 states are in the South and all of them with a history of discrimination against blacks, American Indians, Asian-Americans, Alaska Natives or Hispanics.

Borsig sees community ties as key to MUW success BY NERISSA YOUNG The Commercial Dispatch
COLUMBUS — He will be president, but he doesn’t have all the answers, nor will he bluff them. That quality endeared Dr. Jim Borsig to the Mississippi University for Women campus. Borsig will become president of MUW in January. January will mark the beginning of the journey to learn and shape that vision. Borsig told members of The Commercial Dispatch editorial board that MUW’s success rests with all its constituent groups, and he will ask everyone to take part. “This is more than a team sport,” he said. “This is a family event.” In a nod to Interim President Allegra Brigham, he credited her
with easing the transition. “I am fortunate to follow Allegra, who has made the way for whoever would have been president a lot easier,” he said. “This is the start of a conversation. We have to get pretty good at the conversation. We have to imagine what The W will look at in the 21st century. That’s the focus.” Borsig was asked more than once about applying for the MUW presidency before he decided he might be a good fit for the university. “I was not looking for this job. I was not looking for a job. I enjoyed what I was doing,” he said. “My first reaction was ‘I don’t think so.”’ He spent the next week to 10 days thinking about it. “Looking at what I knew about the institution and
thinking about my experience, I came to the realization that I didn’t know if I was the best, but that I should listen. “I’m convinced this institution has a bright future. I have a passion for The W and for its potential — one that I discovered in this process.” Borsig said he won’t shy away from the big issues, and he knows name change and sports are among them. What others interpret as controversy, he sees as evidence of passion. “You gotta have the courage to walk to the other side of a conflict.” Any discussion about changing MUW’s name “is likely to get messy,” he said. “I think the conversation is essential. It’s not necessarily the most important thing to me at this
moment. I don’t have the answer, but I’m not afraid to have the conversation.” MUW was founded as the Industrial Institute and College in 1884 and was the first state-supported college for women. In 1920, II&C became Mississippi State College for Women. And in 1974, MUW adopted its current name. The college has been accepting men since 1982. Restoring the college’s sports program is another important consideration, he said, since sports can be an important part of campus life. He doesn’t yet know enough about the university’s financial situation to decide whether reinstating the sports programs is feasible. Borsig plans to focus on student recruitment, retention and graduation.
“Those are the critical factors,” he said, rattling off a series of statistics: One-third of the 10,000 students who graduate annually from the eight state-funded universities enter college as a freshman and attend one school all four years. Onethird of those students transfer from a community college into a four-year institution. The last third is everyone else, including students who take an extended time to graduate or have attended more than two colleges. “We will compete, I think, for those traditional students,” he said, noting he will encourage a “plug and play” transfer program for community college students. Mississippi is at the top of states helping nontraditional students finish
their degrees, and “that is the market for students.” Without in-depth research, he declined to put a number on how many students would be optimum for The W, not committing to the 3,500 figure he has heard repeatedly. “I know it’s more than what we have enrolled today,” he said. Past MUW President Claudia Limbert spent much of her tenure in a tug of war with a faction of the university’s alumni. Eventually, it led to the disaffiliation of the college’s more than centuryold MUW Alumnae Association and the creation of a new alumni group. Borsig said he recognized the importance of university-alumni relations, though he doesn’t expect everyone to always agree.
