2011 Christmas Basket Fund ‘A Community Tradition’

Basket fund donations still accepted The spirit of giving this Christmas season is alive and well in the Alcorn County area. Donations continue to arrive for the 16th annual Corinth Rotary Club/Daily Corinthian Christmas Basket Fund. A $25,000 fundraising goal was set so 1,100 food baskets could be given to local families on Saturday, Dec. 10. It was a record number of baskets and the community has responded in a big way. Baskets were given away based upon the faith the goal would be reached and the faith has now turned into fact with the goal not only being reached, but surpassed. So far $26,780 has been raised. Donations include $25 from the Pauline Missionary Society of Waldron Street Christian Church. Donations will continue to be accepted through Christmas Day and are a perfect time to make a tribute to a loved one. Contributions to the Christmas Basket Fund can be made “in honor of� or “in memory of� a special person or persons. The tribute will be published in the Daily Corinthian. Donations can be brought by the newspaper office or mailed to: Daily Corinthian, Attn.: Christmas Basket Fund, P.O. Box 1800, Corinth, MS 38835.

Sales/tourism tax receipts fall for October BY JEBB JOHNSTON

The sales and tourism taxes took a backward step in the third monthly deposit of the new fiscal year. Although sales tax collections were up across the state by 3 percent with $30.8 million returned to municipalities, both local taxes were in the red for the month. The city’s sales tax deposit for mid-December was $419,640.23, down almost 6 percent, or about $26,000, from the same month a year earlier. The prior two deposits had left the city even with the previous fiscal year, but the year-to-date total of $1,275,904.62 is now 2 percent behind the same point in fiscal 2011. The funds received this month reflect sales activity in local businesses during the month of October. City Clerk Vickie Roach said the latest numbers are the type of results the city feared heading into the new fiscal year. She’ll be Please see TAX | 2

Downtown fire’s cause undetermined BY JEBB JOHNSTON

Investigation of the Dec. 4 fire that destroyed Crossroads Dry Cleaners has ended with no determination of the cause. Corinth Fire Chief Rob Price said his department has concluded its investigation. The fire scene has also been examined by the state fire marshal’s office and an investigator for

the insurance company. “Nothing was found to make us suspect any foul play,� said Price. “We could not find a definite cause, but we did find a suspected area of origin. It was up high and in what we called the office area toward the back of the building.� Price combed through the scene with both investigators on separate days. “Without consulting with

each other, they both came to the same conclusion,� he said. The fire at 712 Cruise St. was reported at 11:18 p.m on Dec. 4, a Sunday night. Residents of apartments at the adjacent BelHaven building were evacuated. The owner of the dry cleaning business, Kevin Harvell, has said he will be looking to rebuild. The business employed eight.

The BelHaven, which has eight tenants, had some smoke and water damage. The fire chief has said the city narrowly avoided a disaster as firemen were able to stop the blaze from getting to other buildings. “It could have gotten that whole block where Martha’s Menu, JB Outdoors, all of that is,� he said.

Not yet goodbye Outgoing tax collector reflects on past, looks ahead BY JEBB JOHNSTON

Don’t say “goodbye� to Greg Younger just yet. Although his time as tax collector is ending this month, he will continue working in the office until about mid-April to help his successor, Larry Ross, have a smooth transition to the post that Younger has held since Jan. 3, 1988. For his next endeavor, Younger is planning a consulting business that would offer services to local governments, and he is also keeping his options open in the political arena. “I’m too young to quit working altogether,� said Younger, who is wrapping up his sixth term. “Unless something changes, I’m going to form a consulting company, and I’m hoping to work with several different counties, not just Alcorn.� A narrow election loss for the office of chancery clerk this year has not diminished his interest in elective office. Younger said he would not shut the door on a run for another office, whether it be chancery clerk or another position. He has considered running for mayor at times in the past, including in Corinth’s 2010 election. His path to elective office began in late 1986 when he read about the split of the assessor

Trading cards will tell story of war BY BOBBY J. SMITH

In early 2012, a set of trading cards depicting events, places and people from Civil War events at Shiloh and Corinth will be available from the National Park Service. The program started in the northeastern states earlier this year. The first five cards in the local series will probably be released in February, said NPS Supervisory Park Ranger Ashley Berry, of Shiloh National Military Park. Three of the upcoming first set of five trading cards will be centered on Corinth and share the theme of “Civil War to Civil Rights,� with two focusing on the Corinth Contraband Camp; one about Kate Cumming (1828-1909), a Civil War nurse who braved Corinth’s dismal wartime conditions to treat wounded Confederates following the Battle of Shiloh. The remaining two in this initial set will focus on the Bat-

Holidays increase dangers for pets BY SUSAN COLLINS-SMITH MSU Ag Communications

FLOWOOD — The holidays are full of tasty treats, glittery decorations and shiny new toys, but for pets these things could mean big trouble. And for pet owners, that may mean emergency trips to the veterinarian. “During the holidays, we see a lot of emergencies,” said Dr. J. Darrell Phillips, hospital administrator of Animal Emergency and Referral Center in Flowood, an affiliate of Mississippi State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. Partaking of all the holiday meals, snacks and candies that are so plentiful this time of year is something most people enjoy, but the same should not be true for pets. Phillips encourages pet owners to be careful with food, as well as orna-

mental plants and holiday decorations. “We see a lot of gastrointestinal upset in pets where they have just eaten too much,” he said. “But a lot of things are toxic to our pets, like chocolate, grapes, raisins and some nuts. And those things can cause serious injury and sometimes death.” Seek treatment by a veterinarian right away if a pet eats anything toxic. “While some poisonings, such as with anticoagulants and antifreeze, require minimal exposure to be lethal, the prognosis for many poisoning incidents can be improved with prompt intervention,” said Dr. Jody Ray, assistant clinical professor at the MSU veterinary college. “Some poisonings require Please see PETS | 3

in “The Seven-Year Itch.” After six terms in the collector’s office, Younger knows perhaps better than anyone in Alcorn County that people do not like to pay taxes. While he said most people who come into the office are “extremely nice,” he is no stranger to gripes from people handing over their hard-earned money for property taxes and car tags. “A lot of times I feel like they don’t follow through on complaining to the people who could actually do some good,” said Younger. “They complain to us here and vent, and then they don’t go any further with it.” The first year he served, the office collected about $4 million. In the latest fiscal year, the amount was a little more than $21 million. The car tag is one area that he believes needs a change. He said the 1995 legislative credit has been largely offset by rising prices, higher millage rates and the higher sales tax rate. Younger would like to see the county establish a branch location of the collector’s office where car tags could be picked up at a drive-through. And, as the person who has managed the county’s computer systems through the years, he believes the county eventually needs to hire an information technology director. Lining the walls of his office are commissions signed by each governor since Bill Allain. He believes the people of Alcorn County placed their confidence in him through the years, and he speaks with emotion about his appreciation of their trust for a quarter century. After that first election for tax collector, “I got reelected five times without an opponent,” said Younger. “I always joked that it was because nobody wanted to be tax collector. But then when I announced that I wasn’t going to run for reelection, there were nine people decided they wanted to run for it.”

immediate attention for the best possible outcome, and some may not be as time-sensitive. Consulting with your veterinarian in the event of a poisoning is the best option.” Decorations, including ornamental plants, often can be the cause for holiday trips to the emergency veterinary clinic. “It is a safe bet that most ornamental plants that folks have around during the holidays are somewhat toxic, but some very popular holiday plants are extremely toxic, such as lilies,” Phillips said. In fact, many common

holiday foods, plants and products are quite dangerous for pets, Ray said. “The most common poisonings reported in companion animals include human foods such as onions, chocolate, rai-

keeping dangerous things out of reach will help keep pets out of the emergency room. A few tips to help keep pets safe around holiday décor include unplugging the tree lights when unattended, not

placing food gifts under the tree even if wrapped, and not using tinsel around cats. “Pets are curious, and during the holidays we have all kinds of unusual things around the house,”

Phillips said. “I tell people to think of it like they are going to baby-proof a house. You are going to do the same kind of thing for your pet during the holidays — and the rest of the year.”

Corinth, Miss.

Other Views

Barbour’s view of issues on target Gov. Haley Barbour has been traveling around the state giving his view of important issues. . . . Barbour may be one of the most effective governors Mississippi has ever produced. His achievements are many. For example, his administrative skills and political genius and ability to persuade lawmakers were on full display in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. That worst storm in history was a perfect storm for Barbour and Mississippi when it came to rebuilding the state from disaster. Barbour was able to use this contacts and political abilities to help the state as it sought to recover and rebuild from this disaster. Politically, Barbour turned a constitutionally weak office of the governor into a powerful one by sheer dint of his own prowess. The priorities he presents today are on target, but the governor’s reflections show the depth of the ongoing, deep issues involving education, health care, teen pregnancy, illegitimacy and other issues associated with poverty that have long plagued the state. His call for more church involvement, personal responsibility and reaffirming values that build families and promote individual success are points well taken. Finding solutions to Mississippi’s deep social and economic problems will take efforts that go beyond government programs. However, solid public policy also must lay the groundwork for family stability, community health and individual success. Mississippi desperately needs to provide better educational opportunity for all, including early-childhood education. Mississippi needs better job training, which Barbour has done much to achieve already. The state needs better health care. Most of all, Mississippi needs leadership at every level to keep talking and keep pushing for ideas to move the state forward. That is why it is good that Barbour, as he approaches the end of his time in office, is not just talking about what he sees as his achievements, but also issues that remain. Mississippi has a new set of state leaders who will face this list of old problems. Progress depends on facing them squarely. Regardless of political philosophy, that is an approach new leaders can take from Barbour. — The Clarion-Ledger, Jackson

Bryant wants to be ‘the big idea governor’ So far, Phil Bryant is saying all the right things as he prepares to become Mississippi’s governor in a couple of weeks. He told an assembly at a policy meeting in Jackson that he wants to be “the big idea governor.” Like many of the state’s residents, Bryant believes in Mississippi. He told the 200 people at the meeting Dec. 15 that he didn’t run for office to say, “Let’s be mediocre.” Bryant has already made a wise suggestion that the various medical centers in Jackson should work together to turn the capital city into a regional medical hub. The Republican said the state should expand its medical services, increase energy production, strengthen its manufacturing base and reduce its teen pregnancy rate. Those are all fine goals, but enhancing medical services may be the easiest one to accomplish. If history is a guide, it will be most difficult to reduce the number of teen pregnancies. Making Bryant’s task more difficult is the fact that a tough economy is the wrong environment to encourage the big-idea, longterm work of which Bryant speaks. Lawmakers who have been grappling with shrinking revenues the past few years have been told to expect even less next year. They will be struggling to maintain current programs, much less add new ones. Bryant’s own Republican Party, though, will be in charge of both the House and Senate. It will be interesting to see how much of the budget goes toward ideas such as the ones the incoming governor is discussing. —The Greenwood Commonwealth

Thad Cochran was chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee at the time or the contributions of the rest of the state’s congressional delegation. But Barbour’s mastery of the federal bureaucracy and his personal relationship with former President George W. Bush that put Mississippi ahead of the game in terms of relief and recovery from Katrina. There is an intrinsic value in the governor of a small, poor state knowing exactly what relief to request and to whom to make that request -- and to have a relationship in place to ease the transaction. That was Haley Barbour’s great gift as Mississippi governor in times of crisis. From a political standpoint, Barbour was a force of nature in Jackson, more often than not winning political battles that he didn’t

have the constitutional power as governor to win. But Barbour understood party discipline and how to bring pressure to bear against friend and foe alike. Two moments during his tenure I will remember -first, I remember the quiet rush of tears to his eyes when surveying the enormity of the damage on the Gulf Coast after Katrina from the air. Second, I remember the cold resolve in those same eyes during a particularly contentious moment during the “hospital tax” fight when a political foe threatened dire political retribution if Barbour didn’t relent on a key policy point. Barbour said: “Look, you be for what you’re for. I can assure that’s exactly what I’m going to do -- and we’ll still be friends when this is over with.” As in most cases over his eight years in office, Barbour won the policy point.

put the result of such faith this way: “Is that all there is? If that’s all there is to life, then let’s break out the booze and have a ball, if that’s all there is.” Why contribute to charity, or perform other good deeds? Without a source to inspire charity, such acts are sentimental affectations, devoid of meaning and purpose. If survival of the fittest is the rule, let only the fit survive. That was the sentiment of Ebenezer Scrooge before his visitation by those three spirits and his subsequent transformation. Let the poor and starving die, he said, “...and decrease the surplus population.” Who is to say such a notion is wrong without a standard by which to judge wrong. To object to God is to create morality from a Gallup Poll. In Gallup We Trust doesn’t have the same authority. Hitchens was a gifted writer, but who gave him the gift?

merely a “chasing after the wind”? (See Ecclesiastes) Apparently he thought so. An atheist will tell you he doesn’t need God in order to be good, or perform good works. Maybe not, but the very notion of “good” must have both a definition and a definer. “Only God is good,” said Jesus. (Mark 10:18) Who is the author of evil? And if God is nonexistent, why do we call it evil? Is one person’s evil another person’s good? Does such a view lead to ethics that must inevitably be situational? Scripture warns, “The fool has said in his heart ‘there is no God.’” (Psalm 14:1) In this season when many celebrate the object of their faith, there is no joy in the death of one who had faith that God does not exist. Hitchens now knows the truth and that can only be the worst possible news for him. As for the atheists still with us, Christmas is a reminder there is still time to believe and receive the ultimate gift. Readers may e-mail Cal Thomas at

Casino revenue decline continues in November

Southaven closes meeting about mayor’s receipts

JACKSON — Mississippi’s casinos won $165.8 million from gamblers in November, down nearly 8 percent from $179.6 million in 2010’s same month. The 19 river casinos won $84.7 million, down 10 percent from $93.9 million in November 2010, according to Mississippi Department of Revenue figures. Winnings at the 11 Mississippi coast casinos totaled $81.1 million, down 5 percent from $85.6 million the previous November. River casino winnings are down 12 percent through the first 11 months of the year. That partly reflects the heavy impact of flooding in May and June in that region. Gulf casino winnings are now down 1 percent for the year, with a poor second half of 2011 wiping out gains from earlier. Statewide, gross revenue is down 7 percent for the year, to $2.05

SOUTHAVEN — Southaven aldermen met in closed session Tuesday night to discuss $44,000 in receipts from meals and other items Mayor Greg Davis charged to the city. The Commercial Appeal reports the officials didn’t reveal what they discussed. Davis repaid about $96,000 of the more than $170,000 the state auditor demanded he return to the city for personal expenses he billed to taxpayers. Davis said last week that he’s gay after the receipts reviewed by auditors and aldermen, and obtained by The Commercial Appeal, showed he charged the city for thousands of dollars of food and liquor and for an unspecified $67 purchase at a gay sex shop in Canada. Davis says he’ll miss the Jan. 3 city board meeting because he’ll be on vacation.

Life sentence handed down in 2010 slaying CLEVELAND — A Bolivar County man has been sentenced to life in prison for murder in an incident that occurred on Christmas Eve 2010. The Bolivar Commercial reports that 61-yearold Prentiss Earl Smith was convicted this past week in the shooting death of 60-year-old Albert Smith Jr. and the wounding of 55-year-old Derba Smith at a Cleveland home. Circuit Judge Johnnie Walls also sentenced Prentiss Smith to a concurrent 20-year term for aggravated assault in the wounding of Derba Smith. Police say the victims were Prentiss Smith’s brother and sister-in-law.

The Sun Herald reports that Necaise was supposed to be changing from his inmate uniform into street clothes for his fourth day of trial when he was found hanging in the cell. He later died at Memorial Hospital at Gulfport. Necaise had been accused in the 2008 robbery and stabbing death of Frank Roberts of Biloxi. Roberts had been held for ransom and later was found dead in a wooded area in Gulfport. The capital murder case was passed to the files as a result of Necaise’s death.

She would not say what researchers were studying.

House, Senate show no give in payroll tax fight BY ANDREW TAYLOR Associated Press

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; House and Senate leaders traded demands Wednesday but remained mired in a bitter holiday-season stalemate that is threatening 160 million workers with Jan. 1 tax increases and millions of the longterm unemployed with an end to their benefits. In a letter, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid urged Speaker John Boehner to bring House lawmakers back to Washington and approve a bipartisan measure the Senate approved overwhelmingly last weekend. That bill would extend the payroll tax cut and jobless benefits for two months, giving bargainers time to agree to a more expensive, yearlong measure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because we have a responsibility to assure middle-class families that their taxes will not go up while we work out our differences, we must pass this immediate extension first,â&#x20AC;? wrote Reid, D-Nev. Minutes later, Boehner, R-Ohio, and other top House Republicans invited reporters into a meeting where they urged

Reid to bring senators back to town so they can negotiate over a yearlong extension of the tax cut and jobless benefits. The bill would also postpone a scheduled Jan. 1 cut of 27 percent in payments to doctors who treat Medicare patients. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re asking for is to get Senate members over here to work with us to resolve our differences so we can do what everybody wants to,â&#x20AC;? Boehner said. President Barack Obama and leaders of both parties want to extend the tax cuts and jobless benefits and prevent the cut in doctorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; reimbursements for an entire year. Most lawmakers have left Washington for the Christmas and New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s holiday, but could quickly return to vote on any agreement. The back and forth underscored a pressurepacked partisan fight, being waged on the eve of a presidential and congressional election year, in which neither side is showing any indication of give. In a moment of political theater, Democrats tried to get the House to consider the two-month extension of the payroll tax

cut as the chamber convened for a ceremonial session at which no formal business was scheduled. But acting speaker Rep. Michael Fitzpatrick, R-Pa., adjourned the chamber and walked out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mr. Speaker, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re walking out. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re walking away just as so many Republicans have walked away from middle-class taxpayersâ&#x20AC;? and others, Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland, the No. 2 House Democrat, shouted to an empty chair where the House presiding officer sits. Republicans also came under pressure from their own usual allies when an opinion article on the Wall Street Journalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conservative editorial page accused the GOP of botching the fight over the payroll tax cut. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Republicans would do best to cut their losses and find a way to extend the payroll holiday quickly,â&#x20AC;? the editors wrote. On Tuesday, the House voted 229-193 to kill the Senate measure. Afterward, Obama signaled heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll use his presidential megaphone to try to force Republicans controlling the House into submission.

Utah man crashes Lamborghini Man proposes via holiday light display hours after winning it in contest SYFY


Associated Press

NORWICH, Conn. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Tis the season for a Connecticut man to propose to his girlfriend using a holiday light display. Jeremy Wilcox tells the Norwich Bulletin newspaper he and his mother spent about two hours putting the words â&#x20AC;&#x153;Will you marry me?â&#x20AC;? in lights across a fence at the family home, which has traditionally been decorated with elaborate holiday scenes during

the Christmas season. He popped the question to Elizabeth Caron on Dec. 10 by lighting up his proposal as she was viewing the decorations. He asked Caron to close her eyes while he plugged in the lights. When she opened them, he was on one knee holding the engagement ring. She said yes. They havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t set a wedding date.

Dopp wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t injured, but his wife said she was shocked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My heart pretty much fell out,â&#x20AC;? Annette Dopp said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They said they were OK. Then (came), you know, that feeling when your heart drops and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh, my gosh. What do we do now?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? The 640-horsepower Lamborghini has frontend damage, a punctured wheel and scratches along the passenger side. The vehicle is insured. David Dopp was videotaped last month jumping up and down and hollering in speechless disbelief when contest officials announced during a college football game that he won the car. The giveaway, which awarded participants for using a rewards card at Maverik stores, was cosponsored by nonprofit organization â&#x20AC;&#x153;teamgive,â&#x20AC;? which raises awareness about rare neurological diseases.

A blip or a trend?



The Labor Department reports on the number of people who applied for unemployment benefits last week. Applications have fallen three weeks in a row and reached the lowest level since May 2008. That means the job market is healthier than it has been since the Great Recession. More is needed -- applications must consistently be below 375,000 for the unemployment rate to keep falling from Novemberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 8.6 percent.

PIMCOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s view of 2012

The mutual fund company PIMCO, which manages $1 trillion in assets, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t shy about making the big picture look bleak. Not long after the financial crisis hit in 2008, PIMCO laid out a gloomy forecast for the years to come: Debt that piled up over the boom years would hurt the U.S. and Europe. PIMCO turned out to be right. Its view of the year ahead? Everything again hinges on Europe. Tony Crescenzi, a PIMCO market strategist, spoke with The Associated Press about what the company expects: Like the second half of this year. That means people will be buying Treasurys. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be the big beneficiary again as people flee other assets. You want bonds that will behave well in a risky environment. For instance, Canadian government bonds, the U.K. gilt market, Australia, sshorter maturities in the Brazilian market. And German Germ m government bonds. ... Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d expect continued strength strre in the dollar.

How do you imagine 2012 will be different from 2011? The world is playing a game of hot potato right now. There are more and more banks and investors seeking to sell assets and more assets seen as toxic. So you have more hot potatoes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; such b and Eurobt as, European bank debt pean government debt.. The only player with oven mitts iss the Euut itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ropean Central Bank, b but e of last er refusing to be the lender e time, resort.

The Commerce Department's third report on how much the economy grew during the summer is expected to match its second estimate a month ago. The government said the economy expanded at an annual rate of 2 percent in the JulySeptember period, lower than an initial 2.5 percent estimate a month earlier.

The holidays used to be a boom time in the greeting card business. But card maker American Greetings went into the final months of this year with a cautious outlook because of uncertainty over the economy and its impact on consumers. The companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s revenue has grown this year, but demand for greeting cards remains a question as more people rely on e-mail or social networking sites rather than buying paper cards.

The Associated Press

WACO, Texas — Robert Griffin III played football for years simply because he was good at it. Then Baylor’s exciting dual-threat quarterback tore the ACL in his right knee and missed the last nine games of the 2009 season. While stuck on the sideline watching, he realized just how much he loved the game. “After a knee injury like that, a lot of times you see guys come back and it’s not the same,” Griffin said. “So I didn’t want that to be attached to me, great player, got hurt, never was the same.

arrived at Baylor nearly four years ago as a 17-yearkid after graduating high school early, is the nation’s most efficient passer this season, throwing for 3,998 yards with a Big 12-leading 36 touchdowns and only six interceptions. He also ran for 644 yards and nine more scores. Baylor (9-3) has a fivegame winning streak, its longest in 20 years, going into the Alamo Bowl next week. With a win over Washington, the 15th-ranked Bears would match the school record of 10 wins set during Mike Singletary’s senior season in 1980.

In his comeback from injury last year, after getting a medical redshirt that means he’s now a fourth-year junior, Griffin helped lead the Bears to their first Top 25 ranking since 1993 and their first bowl game in the Big 12 era. Baylor hadn’t even had a winning season in the first 14 Big 12 seasons. That year on the sideline was the toughest for Griffin and the Bears, who went from big expectations to another losing record without their star quarterback. “You miss out making plays Please see GRIFFIN | 9

Former prep standout sued for sexual harassment The Associated Press

OAKLAND, Calif. — A former Golden State Warriors employee filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against star guard Monta Ellis on Wednesday, alleging Ellis — a former prep star at Lanier High School in Jackson -sent her unwanted texts that included a photo of his genitals. In her lawsuit, which also names the team, Erika Ross Smith alleges Ellis began sending her several dozen explicit messages, sometimes several times a day, starting in November 2010 while she worked for the team’s community relations department. The messages included lines such as, “I want to be with you,” and “Hey Sexy,” and periodically asked her what she was wearing or do-

ing, according to the lawsuit. Smith would often reply with “What do you want?” or “I am sleeping,” the lawsuit claims. “On a micro level, my client has endured unwanted harassment, has suffered and continues to suffer emotional distress and trauma,” her attorney, Burt Boltuch, said at a news conference in his Oakland office. “On a macro level, this type of conduct, especially in the sports world, must stop. “She was embarrassed. She was intimidated. She felt scared and helpless.” Boltuch said his client rejected Ellis’ advances and feared that no one would believe her. Boltuch also showed a photo of what he said was Ellis’ genitalia that the guard allegedly sent to

Smith’s work-issued cellphone on Dec. 17, 2010, a day after he complained to the team about her job performance. When questioned if the photo came from Ellis, Boltuch responded, “We know it came from him.” Rick Welts, the Warriors’ president and chief operating officer, said in a prepared statement Wednesday that the organization takes all harassment allegations seriously. “When we were made aware of a consensual relationship between Mr. Ellis and the Plaintiff, we did what an organization should do. We told both to stop — promptly, directly and fairly,” Welts said. “The Warriors have never taken any action against the Plaintiff for any

inappropriate reason, and we deny the allegations she is making.” Boltuch rejected the team’s claim. “It was absolutely, unequivocally 100 percent not consensual,” Boltuch said. “And if it was, why was my client’s job duties removed and nothing was done to Mr. Ellis? To me that smacks of sexual harassment.” Ellis’ agent, Jeffrey Fried, said Wednesday that he was en route to Oakland and didn’t immediately have a comment. According to the lawsuit, the Warriors changed Smith’s job description and eventually fired her after Ellis’ wife, Juanika Ellis, learned of the texts and complained to team Please see ELLIS | 9

executives in January. Smith said she told team executives that Monta Ellis told her he was using a â&#x20AC;&#x153;secret cellular phoneâ&#x20AC;? that was being kept by the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s equipment manager and was in the name of a third party. Smith, who has worked in similar jobs with the Washington Wizards and the Phoenix Suns, said Wednesday that it was tough to go public. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was pretty hard because I knew that essentially my career is over and it would be hard to re-establish myself after working so hard throughout the years,â&#x20AC;? said Smith, who believes she may be blacklisted in NBA circles. According to the lawsuit, Smith said she told team officials that Ellisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; wife called her on Jan. 7 and said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know about the secret phone.â&#x20AC;? Shortly after that, Smith said Ellis told her that he met with team officials and general manager Larry Riley told him â&#x20AC;&#x153;not to worry,â&#x20AC;? and that â&#x20AC;&#x153;everything would be swept under the rug.â&#x20AC;? The following month, Juanika Ellis apparently used her purse to push Smith into a wall during a Warriors home game, the lawsuit said. Smith said she believes that Ellisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; wife believes Smith initiated the texts with the player. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was accusatory towards me,â&#x20AC;? Smith said Wednesday. Boltuch said the team in February reduced Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s responsibilities, including interaction with Ellis and other players after she refused to resign. Boltuch said the team eliminated Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position in August, more than a week after she notified the team that a reporter contacted her inquiring if Ellis was â&#x20AC;&#x153;stalkingâ&#x20AC;? her. The lawsuit alleges retaliation, wrongful termination and intentional infliction of emotional distress and seeks unspecified damages. Ellis was the Warriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading scorer last season, averaging 24.1 points per game. He was recently selected as a team captain for this season.

GRIFFIN: Baylor quarterback focusing on Alamo Bowl before draft decision CONTINUED FROM PAGE 8

and doing great things,â&#x20AC;? Griffin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I missed playing, I missed practicing, but you really just miss your teammates.â&#x20AC;? By time Griffin played his first game for the Bears in 2008, when at 18 he was the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s youngest FBS starting quarterback, he was already a Big 12 champion and NCAA All-American in the 400-meter hurdles. He set an FBS record by throwing 209 passes to start his career before his first interception. Griffin passed for 2,091 yards and 15 TDs with 843 yards and 13 more scores rushing as a freshman. But then he got hurt on the opening series of the third game of his sophomore season. He finished the first half of that game against Northwestern State on a gimpy leg, throwing for 226 yards and three touchdowns to push the Bears ahead 41-10. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take another snap

televised game, but his biggest play was a 15-yard catch from receiver Kendall Wright to convert third-and-10 on the game-winning drive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really liked that play,â&#x20AC;? running back Terrance Ganaway said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a touchdown, but it meant a lot for our team right there. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be my favorite play because it helped win us the game.â&#x20AC;? And set a tone for what would be an incredible season for the Bears. After a tough stretch in October, Baylor swept through November with four consecutive victories. The Bears had won only four Big 12 games combined in November the previous 15 years. That November stretch included their first win over Oklahoma, a 45-38 victory punctuated by another of Griffinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signature plays. Griffin threw for 479 yards and four touchdowns, the last when he scrambled to his left and threw across his body to the corner of the end zone on the

that season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have something and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taken away from you, then all of a sudden you appreciate it more,â&#x20AC;? coach Art Briles said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everything had come real fast for him, from seventh grade on up, so what it did, it let him slow down. It let him appreciate the game and understand the game, get a different feel for the game, from a spectator and from a team-member standpoint, as opposed to always being the focal point.â&#x20AC;? But Griffin is clearly the centerpiece for the Bears when he is on the field. RG3 returned last year to throw for 3,501 yards to lead the Bears to a bowl game. He already holds 46 school records with a highlight reel that keeps getting longer. This season started with a 50-48 victory over defending Rose Bowl champion TCU, the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top defense the previous three seasons. Griffin threw for 359 yards and five touchdowns in that nationally

Baylor president Ken Starr said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was scrambling around. And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve watch that replay, that was magical. It was magical and miraculous.â&#x20AC;? That is RG3, who now faces the big choice of whether to return for one more season at rising Baylor or go into the NFL draft, where his stock has risen significantly. Griffin said his focus is on the Alamo Bowl and trying to get Baylorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 10th win. After that, he will discuss his options with his family and Briles on a decision that may be tougher now because of all the success. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I come back, people would be like why.

JASON PIERRE-PAUL, DE, GIANTS The 6'5", 278-pound second-year end out of South Florida has drawn comparisons to the original “Freak,” Jevon Kearse; and JPP showed just what an unbelievable athlete he is during New York’s 37–34 win over Dallas on Sunday night at Jerry’s House. Pierre-Paul’s wingspan seemingly stretched from sideline-to-sideline, as the one-man Big Blue Wrecking Crew recorded eight tackles, two sacks — including one safety — one forced fumble and a blocked kick on the potential game-tying field goal. After notching 4.5 sacks as a rookie, JPP has 12.5 through 13 games during what is likely the first of many Pro Bowl seasons for the 22-year-old. ROB GRONKOWSKI, TE, PATRIOTS Another incredible physical specimen in his second season, the “Gronk” had six catches for a career-high 160 yards and two record-breaking TD grabs during a 34–27 win at Washington. In the process, the 6'6", 265-pounder out of Arizona set the all-time single-season record for TD catches by a tight end. Gronkowski’s 14th and 15th TDs — an 11-yard strike and 37-yard highlight run — moved Tom Brady’s go-to guy past Antonio Gates (2004) and Vernon Davis (2009), who each hauled in 13 TDs. TERRELL SUGGS, LB, RAVENS The Colts’ return to Baltimore — where they played from 1953-83 — was not quite the homecoming the horseshoes were hoping for. The Ravens sent the league’s lone remaining winless team back to Indianapolis in impressive fashion during the 24–10 contest. Suggs led the way with three sacks and three forced fumbles, as the Ravens defense forced six Colts punts, while holding Indy to just three points through three quarters. Over the past three weeks, Suggs has recorded seven sacks and four forced fumbles, giving him 13.0 sacks and six forced fumbles this season. MATT PRATER, K, BRONCOS Say whatever you want about Tim Tebow or the Denver defense, but the latest Broncos miracle was a result of the golden right foot of Prater — who bombed a career-long and game-tying 59-yard field goal with three seconds remaining in regulation before splitting the uprights on a 51-yard field goal in overtime to seal a 13–10 win over the Bears. After entering their Week 6 bye with a 1–4 record, the Broncos have won seven of their last eight, including six straight, and are currently sitting alone in first place of the AFC West division standings.

■ With fantasy playoff berths on the line, Jaguars running back MAURICE JONES-DREW came through in the clutch — with 85 rush yards and two TDs on the ground, along with six catches for 51 yards and two TDs through the air. Thanks in large part to Mojo’s rising, Jacksonville beat Tampa Bay, 41–14, and fantasy owners on the playoff bubble punched their ticket to the postseason.

Houston: No Problem Texans earn franchise’s first playoff berth By NATHAN RUSH Athlon Sports Editor

Houston, we have lift off — the Texans are AFC South champs and rocketing into the postseason for the first time since the franchise arrived on the NFL horizon as an expansion team in 2002. A dramatic 20–19 comeback win at Cincinnati — the Texans’ seventh straight victory — coupled with a 22–17 Tennessee loss to New Orleans, secures a trip to the playoffs for owner Bob McNair and the coach he stood by since 2006, Houston native Gary Kubiak. “It’s pretty crazy,” said rookie thirdstring-turned-starting quarterback T.J. Yates. “A lot of people in this organization have waited a long time for this. This is a special day for this team and this organization.” After starter Matt Schaub (Lisfranc) and backup Matt Leinart (collarbone) suffered season-ending injuries in back-to-back weeks earlier this year, many thought the Texans were quarterback-less and their subsequent playoff chances were hopeless. But Yates — with plenty of help from the team’s power running game and stout defense — has stepped up to lead the Texans to their 10–3 mark. A fifth-round pick (No. 152 overall) out of North Carolina, Yates was the ninth quarterback selected in the draft but has shown poise beyond his years thus far as Houston’s top passer — leading the team to a win over the Jaguars after coming off the bench in place of Leinart, and going 2–0 as a starter against the Falcons and on the road in the playoff-clincher against the Bengals.

Houston Texans running back Arian Foster headlines the league’s No. 2 rushing offense, which has taken the pressure off of rookie third-string quarterback T.J. Yates.

While Yates has been impressive as a rookie thrown into the fire, the keys to the Texans’ success have been their running game led by the one-two punch of Arian Foster (957 yards, eight TDs) and Ben Tate (820 yards), and the hybrid defense coordinated by Wade Phillips. The league’s No. 1 overall defense (274.9 ypg) is as balanced as they come — ranking No. 3 against the pass (183.5 ypg) and No. 4 against the run (91.5 ypg) — numbers that are even more impressive considering the loss of All-Pro pass rusher Mario Williams, whose torn pectoral muscle ended his season in Week 5.

With the playoffs on the line, Phillips’ stop-unit held the Bengals to 81 total yards in the second half — limiting Cincinnati running back Cedric Benson to minus-one yard on eight carries after halftime. The Texans may not have an elite quarterback, but Kubiak’s formula of ground-and-pound offense, and don’tbend-or-break defense has historically worked for teams in the playoffs. And that has Houston fans fired up for their turn to flex postseason muscle. “I’m a proud Houstonian like everybody else. And to see the excitement in our town,” said Kubiak, “it’s pretty cool. It’s been exciting.”

JAGUARS (4-9) AT FALCONS (8-5) The Dirty Birds have not been great closers, but they have won the games they were expected to win at home — with only defeats to the Packers and Saints (in overtime) in the friendly confines of the Georgia Dome this season. COWBOYS (7-6) AT BUCCANEERS (4-9) The first Saturday night game of the season pits two teams licking their wounds. The Boys have lost back-to-back games on painful missed potential game-winning field goals — both of which came after timeouts that “iced” kicker Dan Bailey. The Bucs have simply lost seven straight games and are desperate to win. BENGALS (7-6) AT RAMS (2-11) St. Louis is the Gateway to the second-Worst team in the NFL (and No. 2 pick in the draft); Cincy is still eyeing a longshot playoff berth. DOLPHINS (4-9) AT BILLS (5-8) Miami crushed Buffalo, 35–8, in Week 11. That was the Bills’ third straight loss in a streak that has since grown to six consecutive defeats. TITANS (7-6) AT COLTS (0-13) Rookie Jake Locker could make his first start of the season, following a left calf injury to old man Matt Hasselbeck. But Tennessee is just hoping to avoid handing Indy its first win of the year. The Titans still have an outside shot at a Wild Card berth, but must win their last three. REDSKINS (4-9) AT GIANTS (7-6) Comeback king of New York, Eli Manning, will be looking to avenge a 28–14 Week 1 loss at Washington when the G-Men host the Skins. SAINTS (10-3) AT VIKINGS (2-11) Drew Brees loves playing indoors. N’Awlins is 3–2 in the elements this season and 7–1 under a roof in a temperature-controlled dome. PACKERS (13-0) AT CHIEFS (5-8) Expect to hear plenty of great quotes from Vince Lombardi and Hank Stram prior to this rematch of Super Bowl I, which the Packers won 35–10 on Jan. 15, 1967 in Los Angeles. PANTHERS (4-9) AT TEXANS (10-3) Cam Newton hits Houston looking to win his third straight road game, after taking victories in Indy and Tampa Bay in Weeks 12 and 13. SEAHAWKS (6-7) AT BEARS (7-6) Chicago has gone 0–3 since Jay Cutler’s thumb injury; the Hawks are 4–1 the past five weeks. LIONS (8-5) AT RAIDERS (7-6) Ndamukong Suh returns just in time to show the Black Hole what a real scary, dirty player looks and acts like on and off the field. JETS (8-5) AT EAGLES (5-8) This meeting would have been a quote-board bonanza earlier this season. As it stands, Philly’s only role is that of Jets spoiler. BROWNS (4-9) AT CARDINALS (6-7) Phoenix is rising, having won five of its last six games following a 1–6 start to the season. PATRIOTS (10-3) AT BRONCOS (8-5) Tom Brady and Tim Tebow are carrying a combined 10–0 record, with 18 TDs and two INTs over the past five weeks. This week, however, either Tom or Tim Terrific will suffer a loss. RAVENS (10-3) AT CHARGERS (6-7) San Diego needs to win out and have Denver and Oakland fall apart in order to contend for the AFC West title. Meanwhile, Baltimore is jockeying for homefield advantage throughout the playoffs. Both teams badly need this win. STEELERS (10-3) AT 49ERS (10-3) Both of Pittsburgh’s top two offensive players — quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and center Maurkice Pouncey — have been diagnosed with high-ankle sprains and are questionable heading into this Monday night matchup with the fifth-ranked overall defense (305.1 ypg) and No. 1 rush defense (70.5 ypg). The Niners could use a win, however, having lost two of their last three after a 9–1 start to the season.

McCoy’s concussion prompts NFL changes The Associated Press

BEREA, Ohio — Browns quarterback Colt McCoy still hasn’t shaken symptoms from a concussion sustained nearly two weeks ago, one that has reformed the NFL’s game-day procedures on head injuries. McCoy was not cleared to practice again on Wednesday, keeping him sidelined since he was illegally blasted in the face mask by Pittsburgh’s James Harrison on Dec. 8. Browns coach Pat

Shurmur said McCoy was evaluated by team doctors and did “a little physical activity” as he continues to recover. McCoy has not been seen at the team’s training facility this week. The second-year QB, who has displayed immense toughness while being roughed up all season, will miss his second straight game Saturday at Baltimore. Backup Seneca Wallace will start against the Ravens, although Shurmur has not made that announce-

ment official. Wallace doesn’t know Cleveland’s plans beyond this week. “I just get ready,” he said. “Colt started the season, he should finish the season as the starter if he’s healthy. All the other stuff will take care of itself.” The Browns are being extra careful in their treatment of McCoy. It was their failure to check him for a concussion on the field or sideline at Heinz Field that prompted the league to institute a policy

of having an independent certified trainer, paid by the NFL, in the press box at games to monitor for head injuries and help identify players who need to be tested. The league said the trainer will not diagnose or prescribe treatment and can’t order players be removed from a game. The trainer will be in a booth upstairs with access to video replay and direct communication to the medical staffs of both teams.

Also, the league will allow medical personnel to use their cell phones during games to get information to help any injured player, not just those with head injuries. In a statement announcing the changes, the league stressed the importance of communication between coaching and medical staffs and urged that “concussions continue to be managed in a conservative and medically appropriate way.” McCoy wasn’t tested for

a concussion until after the loss to the Steelers, and was sent back into the game after missing just two plays. The Browns said McCoy wasn’t showing symptoms of a concussion so they didn’t test him. Also, team doctors were treating other players and didn’t see the impact from Harrison’s vicious hit, which earned the Steelers’ linebacker a one-game suspension he served in Pittsburgh’s loss to San Francisco on Monday.


11 â&#x20AC;˘ Daily Corinthian

Horoscopes by Holiday BY HOLIDAY MATHIS The sun poses a challenge to Uranus in Aries, promising that no matter how cool, calm and collected a person may seem on the outside, one never knows what kind of molten lava emotions might be stewing underneath. ARIES (March 21-April 19). You are always capable of dreaming up the kind of plan that makes your eyes widen and your pulse quicken. This is one of the things loved ones count on from you. TAURUS (April 20May 20). You have to be able to measure what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing -- not because it matters to you so much, but because it will help you when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about it to others. GEMINI (May 21-June

21). You have a way with words, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll use it to get into an elite situation or out of a tricky one. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You may be a bit tired because the recent high level of activity is taking its toll. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get a second wind this afternoon, though, that comes out of your total commitment to make something happen. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Every waking moment, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be scanning your environment for people and resources that fit into your goals and make them easier to attain. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your schedule will be filled with things you feel you must do, not things you really love to do. Make a plan to remedy this situation by the

weekend before someone else makes plans that worsen the situation. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You decide what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to do and how youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to do it. What will really make the action complete is some kind of reward or celebration at the end of the cycle. SCORPIO (Oct. 24Nov. 21). Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be processing some negative thoughts. Greet obstinate, unhelpful ideas like old friends. Thank them for visiting, and then send them on their way. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be like a successful salesperson working the room. What youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re selling might be difficult to name correctly; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never what you

Today in History think it is. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). You communicate in a kind of emotional shorthand with the ones you love. Celebrate the ease that comes with this tie. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been through the good and the bad, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still united in friendship. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18). Those who behave in heartless ways baffle you, but you give them the benefit of the doubt. Maybe they just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the happiness they will find by leading with their heart. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Everything happens in stages. The action stage is coming. For now, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still contemplating how you might make a change.

CHRIST AND CHRISTMAS The national holiday of Christmas is perhaps the most enjoyable holiday of the year. Families enjoy being together and exchanging gifts which demonstrates their love and concern for each other. Christians observe this holiday as they do other national holidays. However, there are many who observe this holiday as the birth of Christ. Many have been led to believe that Christ and Christmas are connected. It has been suggested that December the 25th should be celebrated as the birthday of Christ. Since about 400 A. D. December 25th has been celebrated as the birthday of Christ by many. Some across the religious world still consider this as the authoritative date of the birth of Christ. However, the birth of Christ has been placed by some in every month of the calender. The word Christmas is not found anywhere in the Bible. The Encyclopaedia Britannica states. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Christmas was not among the earliest festivals of the church, and before the 5th century there was no general consensus of opinion as to when it should come in the calender, whether on January 6, March 25 or December 25â&#x20AC;? . If God wanted us to celebrate the birth of Christ, He would have given us the exact date and instructions for the observance. Where in the Bible does it give a speciďŹ c date for the birth of Christ? The day of worship for Christians is the ďŹ rst day of the week. The early Christians came together on the ďŹ rst day of the week to observe the Lordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Supper in remembrance of Christ. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of meâ&#x20AC;? (1 Cor 11:24-25). Christ left a memorial to his death, but not to His birth. Christians are taught not to forsake the assembling of ourselves together. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approachingâ&#x20AC;? (Heb 10:25). Many fail to remember Christ in His appointed way on His appointed day. Christians observe Christmas as a national holiday; not as the birthday of Christ.

Barbourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first stop on Church still hosts volunteers lecture circuit: Miami following Hurricane Katrina BY EMILY WAGSTER PETTUS Associated Press

JACKSON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour has told The Associated Press his first event as a professional speaker will be the day after he leaves office. Barbour, 64, said Monday that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s booked to speak Jan. 11 in Miami at a conference hosted by Barclays bank. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s limited to two terms, and his time as governor ends at noon Jan. 10. Barbour was a Washington lobbyist and former Republican National Committee chairman before unseating a Democratic governor in his home state in November 2003. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being represented by Leading Authorities, a Washington firm that handles speech bookings and event planning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We checked with the (state) Ethics Commission, who said that I could have somebody to represent me and I could accept speeches before I

got out of office, as long as the speech itself will not be until after Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gone out of office,â&#x20AC;? Barbour said during an AP interview Monday in his office near the state Capitol. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And so believe it or not, last week the speakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bureau called me and said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Would you be willing to do something in Miami on Jan. 11?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be my first paid speech,â&#x20AC;? he said. Ethics Commission director Tom Hood confirmed in a separate interview that Barbourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attorney spoke to him informally about Barbourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plans to hit the paid lecture circuit when leaving office. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were aware of the potential necessity to give up speaking fees, if necessary, and they were willing to do that,â&#x20AC;? Hood said. Hood said there are no prohibitions on Barbourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being paid for speeches after leaving office, as long as there is no relation between a speech payment and business he conducted as

governor. Barbour did not say how much heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be paid for speeches, only that the fee will depend on how time-consuming the appearance is and how much travel is involved. The chief operating officer of Leading Authorities did not immediately respond to a message. The firm represents several high-profile clients, including former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, a Republican who ran unsuccessfully for president. Barbour considered seeking the 2012 GOP nomination for president but said in late April that he wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t run because he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the â&#x20AC;&#x153;fire in the belly.â&#x20AC;? Barbour has previously said that he plans to write a book about crisis management when he leaves office, drawing on his experience responding to Hurricane Katrina, which left a wide swath of destruction across south Mississippi in 2005.

BILOXI â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Six years have passed and still they come. Volunteers from throughout the nation converge at Biloxi Christian Church to help those still facing the daunting task of finding their â&#x20AC;&#x153;new normalâ&#x20AC;? after Hurricane Katrina. With just a handful of local church folks and one tireless volunteer coordinator the church has been able to maintain a sense of humble structure amid the mountainous tasks laid before them. BCC houses hundreds of volunteers in their bunkhouses inside the church building every month. The church was founded in 1972 in Gulfport but soon moved to Keller Avenue in Biloxi and to its current location in 1986. Pastor John Wester has been at Biloxi Christian Church since 2005 and has seen the effect the churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work has had on the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are restoring the church back to the word

of God,â&#x20AC;? Wester said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I preach what is on my heart, and I follow where God leads. The Lord has blessed me with something to say every Sunday.â&#x20AC;? The members of the church go out into the community and minister to the needy and sick. Church members use the Old Testament as their authority and the New Testament as their guide to understand Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love through the sending of His son, Jesus Christ. Those who have needs that can be filled by the volunteers or the church members are encouraged to call the church. One member of the church who has made an impact on Mississippi and other areas hit by natural disasters is Ken Wetzel. On Aug. 28, 2006, Wetzel was awarded the Volunteer of the Year award for his efforts following Hurricane Katrina. President George W. Bush presented the award to Wetzel during a stop in South

Mississippi to commemorate the first anniversary of the storm that changed the Coast forever. Wetzel is still coordinating volunteers and working to help people wherever disaster strikes. He is part of New Life Disaster Relief based in Biloxi. The organization coordinates with local, state and federal officials to help set up relief camps, and provide food, supplies and volunteers in times of disaster. Wetzelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team often joins with Samaritanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Purse and other organizations to benefit those in need. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s instruments. His hands and feet, salt and light,â&#x20AC;? Wetzel said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were there when the floods ravaged Kentucky and Iowa and when Ike hit Texas. We were in Nashville, Alabama and our own state of Mississippi after the tornadoes hit. We also brought relief to Joplin when their town was flattened.â&#x20AC;?
