Longtime lawman and cancer survivor Doug Mullins is the new warden at the Alcorn County Regional Corrections Facility.

Longtime law enforcement officer Doug Mullins had his first official day on the job as the new warden of the Alcorn County Regional Correctional Facility on Monday, Nov. 7, 2011. A lawman since February 1977, Mullins is also a cancer survivor. Almost a year before he became warden, Mullins — who will turn 54 on November 18 — was diagnosed with esophageal cancer, a rare form of cancer in which malignant cells form in the tissue of the esophagus, the hollow, muscular tube

A Caterpillar executive described several areas that he said can make a difference in the quest for more jobs in remarks before The Alliance membership. Mark Stratton was guest speaker for the annual meeting of The Alliance Thursday evening. He is a former Corinth facility manager and current general manager in Caterpillar’s Americas Remanufacturing & Components Division who has direct accountability for production operations at six facilities, including Corinth and Booneville. “There is no magic wand that you wave and all of a sudden jobs get

created out of thin air,” said Stratton. “The best you can do is create an environment where free enterprise and commercial operations can flourish and grow and create those opportunities.” For Caterpillar, the world’s largest manufacturer of construction and mining equipment, global competitiveness is essential. “There is no other option,” said Stratton. “The growth is happening in other places as other people strive to enjoy the standard of living that we have developed.” He said factors making it difficult for U.S. corporations to comPlease see JOBS | 2A

Bus driver raising funds to take special students to Disney BY BRANT SAPPINGTON bsappington

Mickey Mouse’s house can make a magical difference in the life of a child. That’s the belief and the vision behind a local man’s efforts to take more than a dozen special needs children and their parents to Disney World for the trip of a lifetime. Havis Hurley has spent his life working to better the lives of young people through work with the Boys and Girls Club in Florida and Mississippi and a lengthy stint as director of the Corinth Sportsplex. It was during his time living in Florida and working with the Boys Club (what is today known as the Boys and Girls Club) of Ft. Lauderdale that he came to fall in love with the magic of

Walt Disney World. In October of 1971 he attended the opening of the Magic Kingdom with a group from the club. Since then he’s made more than 4 dozen visits to the park with his own family and with groups of children who have never had the opportunity to experience the magic. “I think I’ve made about 53 trips down there and I just can never get enough,” said Hurley. Today Hurley serves as a bus driver, transporting approximately 18 children with special needs each day. He said working with these special young people gave him the idea to try to coordinate a trip to Disney for them. They’ve managed to put together a package including transportation, tickets and accommodations for 5 days that will

Warm Hearts, Warm Child effort collecting coats for kids BY BRANT SAPPINGTON bsappington

Chilly weather is just around the corner and people will be scrambling to bundle up in a warm coat to protect themselves for the cold, but for many families in this area providing coats for their children can be a difficult task. Christy Grice, Director of the Boys and Girls Club of Corinth, said she sees young people every day whose families simply can’t afford to provide them a coat for the cold weather ahead. Out of this realization was born the idea for an effort called Warm Hearts, Warm Child. “We have our coats and we just think everyone does, but in this economy

is partnering with the Corinth SportsPlex and

several local businesses to collect coats for children in need. The outerwear will be distributed as it is collected to young people who would otherwise not have a coat to wear. The director said she sees the struggles facing many families and knows it’s especially hard to meet these needs for young children who so quickly grow out of clothes and need something new. They are collecting new and gently used coats in good condition at both the Boys and Girls Club and the SportsPlex.

Hurley said he’s seen firsthand how the Disney experience can broaden the horizons of children who might otherwise never have the opportunity to see this part of the wider world. “I explained to the kids, it’s 800 miles, it’s going to be a long ride, but when you get there it will be a life changer because you’ll definitely be different,” he said. Hurley said the Disney experience is so different from everyday life and it gives children a chance to expand their worlds and dream big. “It’s just such a different feeling when you’re Please see HURLEY | 2A

MULLINS: ‘I’ve always been one of those people who thought — good or bad — I was the cause of it’ CONTINUED FROM 1A

Last year the couple were visiting Vicki’s father in the hospital. Her father had undergone open heart surgery and Vicki had just learned that he was going to pull through. The good news made her affectionately reach for her husband. “I turned around to hug him and his color was horrible,” Vicki recalled. She tried to get her husband to go to the doctor and get checked out but there was always too much to do, plenty of reasons to put it off. On Dec. 8, 2010, Vicki — who works in real estate — asked Doug to ride with her to help put up a sign at her workplace. They got in the car and left, but soon Doug no-

ticed they weren’t heading in the direction of the real estate office. “Where are we going?” he asked. “To the doctor,” Vicki replied. “No, I don’t have time right now,” Doug said. But they went to Dr. Jackson’s office anyway and had Doug tested. His diagnosis was particularly dire. At the time of detection, his cancer was advanced, in its fourth stage and had spread to his lymph nodes. There was also a tumor in his esophagus and his body had lost 46 percent of its blood. “We found it on December 8th, was getting blood on the 9th. By the 20th he was getting chemo,” remembered Vicki. “It hit him hard and fast.”

The diagnosis was a shock that would change Doug’s life forever. “I’ve always been one of those people who — whatever happened, bad or good — thought I was the cause of it and could change it or do better,” Mullins said of his experience. “I found out I couldn’t overcome that. Somebody higher up had to deal with it.” Now, almost a year later, after an exhaustive schedule of treatments, Mullins’ cancer is in remission. While the disease is hopefully gone for good, he will carry lessons learned from the experience for the rest of his life. “I learned not to stress over a lot of things. There are very few things I stress over now,” Mullins said. “It’s like you’re given

a new chance.” The New Warden Mullins first began filling in as the interim warden at the Alcorn County Regional Correctional Facility in September 2011 — the same month his cancer went into remission. His history working with law enforcement reaches back over three decades. The new warden began his law enforcement career in February 1977 as a dispatcher for then-Sheriff Edwin Coleman at the Alcorn County Sheriff’s Department. He has worked with Corinth PD, Tishomingo County law enforcement and the Booneville PD. “Back when I started, we’d get laid off about every three months,” he explained. “There was a lack of money in all the agencies back then.” Mullins has worked his way up from dispatcher, to deputy, investiga-

tor and chief deputy. He worked for three years with the Mississippi Department of Corrections at a community work center and three years with the National Auto Theft Bureau (now the National Insurance Crime Bureau) investigating auto theft, fraud, arson and other related offenses. His “last hoorah” away from Alcorn County was a stint spent working with the Department of the Army at Fort Polk, La., from 2005 to 2008. Around the time Mullins started filling in at the Regional Correctional Facility he was approached by Sheriff Charles Rinehart and asked if he’d be interested in the permanent position. It sounded like a challenge, and Mullins agreed to give it a try. Now he is settling into a new role in his long career in law enforcement. His familiarity with the local jail situation — going back to the consent agree-

ment that was issued way back when one person ran the county jail and many Mississippi facilities were under the federal microscope because of the proliferation of hanging deaths among inmates — has familiarized Mullins with jail policy, procedure, and what it takes to properly manage this kind of facility. His battle with cancer has sharpened Mullins’ focus, has helped him boil down life and his career to the essential elements, and he brings all of his life and career experience to bear in this new chapter of a life dedicated to law and order. “My plans are to make sure we follow MDOC policy on the jail side and make sure it’s a secure facility with well-trained officers throughout,” Mullins said. “When this opportunity came along I said, ‘I think I’ll try that’ — and I am well acquainted with the life.”

pete are tax structure, global trade, education and infrastructure. Education is “not necessarily a money problem,” he said, but one of time and effort. “The average school year in the United States is 180 days,” said Stratton. “The average school year in Korea is 220 days. The average school year for a student in Japan is 243 days … We have to ask ourselves how long can we put our children at that kind of a disadvantage.” Stratton described solid infrastructure as the driver of the economic engine.

“From 1980 to 2008, the traffic on our highways increased by approximately 95 percent,” he said. “Our national highway infrastructure capacity increased by 70.” He would like to see a national strategy for infrastructure improvement. “We have in our hands at Caterpillar the five-year plan for China for infrastructure … We have exactly the same thing from India. We don’t have that from the federal government,” he said. On the need for open trade, he noted more than half the products produced by Caterpillar in the U.S. are sold overseas.

“We employ 47,000 people in the United States right now,” said Stratton. “We’ve added over 7,000 jobs this year as the economy continues to improve. If we don’t have a level playing field, those jobs go away.” He also identified corporate taxes as an obstacle. “We have one of the highest corporate tax rates in the world … it’s an indirect way to tax the general populace,” said Stratton. He encouraged members of The Alliance to learn about the issues and be involved. “We have to get engaged at a personal level,” said Stratton. “This is a contact sport.”

He said on that trip the children marveled at the size of the city and the buildings and were amazed at how different it was from home. “A couple of them said, ‘Well Mr. Havis, this is the best thing I’ve ever done in my life,’” he said. He believes that the upcoming trip will have an even greater impact. Hurley said he’s asking anyone who can help them with funding the trip to call him at 662-643-3561.

Lawyer: AG’s race ad taints jury pool BY HOLBROOK MOHR Associated Press

JACKSON — The lawyer for a man accused of killing a Catholic priest says his client can’t get a fair trial in Mississippi because a campaign commercial in the state attorney general’s race said he murdered the cleric in cold blood. Brian Alexander represents Jeremy Wayne Manieri, who is charged in the July 11 death of the Rev. Ed Everitt of Hammond, La. Authorities say the Louisiana priest was robbed and fatally shot at a beach house in Waveland, Miss. Manieri allegedly told authorities he shot the priest after passing out drunk and high and waking up to find Everitt fondling him.

A commercial for Attorney General Jim Hood shows a picture of Manieri while a voice says Hood’s campaign opponent, former judge Steve Simpson, let a “child molester” out of jail and he later “murdered a 70-year-old priest in cold blood.” Hood, the incumbent Democrat, defeated Republican Simpson in Tuesday’s election after a bitter campaign. Alexander, a Bay St. Louis attorney, said the Hood commercial tainted the prospective jury pool in Mississippi because viewers were “instructed by the Attorney General that Jeremy Manieri is a cold-blooded murderer when he has yet to even

be indicted on any charge, much less murder.” “It’s a clear violation of his oath as attorney general, as an elected public official and as a member of the Mississippi Bar,” Alexander said in telephone interview Thursday. “He has all but ensured that my client cannot receive a fair trial in the state of Mississippi. He has not only eroded the presumption of innocence — attendant to all those who stand accused — he destroyed it.” Hood’s office referred questions to his campaign manager, Jonathan Compretta. Compretta said the ad was paid for by Hood’s campaign but refused to discuss publicly it beyond a written statement.

“This ad did not name the defendant and merely stated facts from media reports,” Compretta said. “If the defendant wants a change of venue, then he should file his motion before the court at the proper time instead of trying his case in the media. He is manipulating members of the media in an attempt to get more pretrial publicity to bolster his case.” Alexander responded that it was Hood’s campaign that brought pretrial attention to the case for political gain. “The concept of ‘pretrial’ is apparently a concept with which the Hood campaign has only recently become familiar,” Alexander said.

Bias alleged in firing

Elvis home hopes to bring in more tourists

JACKSON — A Jackson woman has filed a federal lawsuit claiming she was fired by the state because of her race. According to Saturday’s Clarion Ledger Janice Brown filed the racial discrimination lawsuit last week in U.S. District Court in Jackson. Nick Norris, one of her attorneys, says that from the evidence they have seen, it appears that the Mississippi Senate based its decision to terminate Brown on her race “rather than legitimate business reasons like seniority, experience, or performance.” The Senate leadership committee made the decision to fire Brown, according to senate staffers. State Senate President Pro Tem Billy Hewes couldn’t be reached. State Senate officials said they have been instructed by the state attorney general’s office not to

TUPELO — The Elvis Presley Memorial Foundation has kicked off its public fundraising campaign for a $6.3 million expansion. Officials said that the project is aimed at doubling the number of tourists to Elvis’ birthplace. Presley was born Jan. 8, 1935, in Tupelo. He died at his home, Graceland, in Memphis, Tenn., on Aug. 16, 1977. Work on the expansion started in April. The parking lot already has been doubled and now can accommodate buses and RVs. A 125-seat indoor theater/event center, a 75seat mini amphitheater and a picnic area also are included in this phase. Next the foundation plans for an amphitheater for 350 to 550 people and two sculptures — one of Elvis as a boy and one of Elvis the entertainer.

Working for fun benefits from market capitalism BY MICHAEL BARONE Washington Examiner

Some of my friends in the conservative blogosphere have been ridiculing a New Yorker named Joe Therrien. I want to put in a good word for him. Therrien appears in the lead paragraph of a story in The Nation on Occupy Wall Street. He's an example, writer Richard Kim wants us to know, of the “creative types” ingeniously protesting capitalism. It's one of those no-violence-or-antiSemitism-here-justnifty-people articles you find not only in the avowedly leftish Nation but also in mainstream media. Conservative bloggers and commenters have been making fun of Therrien, who quit his job as a drama teacher in New York City public schools to get a master of fine arts in puppetry at the University of Connecticut. Now he's saddled with $35,000 in student loans and unable to find a puppetry job. So he's substitute teaching at half his former pay and is a member of Occupy Wall Street's Puppetry Guild. “Could he not see this coming if he spent $35k on a degree in puppetry?” asks cartcart on “A hopeless case.” But actually it turns out that some Americans do make a living doing puppetry. And not just the famous ones like Burr Tillstrom of the 1950s TV show “Kukla, Fran and Ollie,” or Jim Henson of “The Muppets.” Some do so working for outfits like the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta, the Sandglass Center for Puppetry and Theater Research in Putney, Vt., and the Spiral Q Puppet Theater in Philadelphia. Reason's Mike Riggs notes disapprovingly that these organizations got federal money from Barack Obama's stimulus package. But they also receive money from people who buy tickets for performances and those who make larger voluntary contributions. They look like good examples of the Tocquevillian voluntary associations that crop up all over America and benefit from the prosperity generated by market capitalism. Therrien, accord-

ing to Richard Kim, thought his master's in puppetry would bring him “a measure of security.” But I think that in quitting a tenured job he was giving up security and taking a risk to achieve his dream. He presumably felt that he could be a good enough puppeteer to make a living at it and could find a job doing so. That's the sort of thing the late Steve Jobs told Stanford graduates that they ought to do. Therrien didn't know that we were going to have a financial collapse in fall 2008 and that a lengthy recession would follow. Neither did most economists -- including the very good ones in the Obama administration -- and most people in banking and financial services. Or perhaps Therrien didn't understand that a lengthy recession could reduce the market demand for puppetry, as fewer people could afford tickets or make generous gifts. I have long thought that one of the wonderful things about our affluent society is that more and more people could find jobs doing things they love. In a hunter-gatherer society, men hunt and women gather, whether they like it or not. In an agricultural society like 18th century America, practically everybody has to make a living farming even if they hate it. In industrial America a century ago, people had jobs as factory workers or, if they were skilled and lucky, file clerks. Liberals today ooze nostalgia about how half a century ago an unskilled guy just out of high school could get a steady job on an auto assembly line. Well, I grew up in Detroit, and I know that people hated those jobs. In the America of our time, a lot of people make livings as actors, musicians and, yes, as puppeteers. I think it's a safe assumption that they get more satisfaction and sense of accomplishment from their work than they would as file clerks or factory workers with significantly higher pay. Joe Therrien bet $35,000 that he would be able to find work he loved, and I think well of him for it, even though he has at least for the moment lost his gamble.

Prayer for today Dear Father God, help us to know your peace as we walk through the days you have ordained for us. Amen.

A verse to share Jesus said, “If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father’s commands and remain in his love.” — John 15:10 (NIV)

Changing of the guard evolves at state Capitol STARKVILLE — Mississippi Republicans have come a mighty long way since the days that Rubel Phillips, Gil Carmichael, Jack Reed, and others laid the groundwork for the victory the GOP won in the 2011 Mississippi general election. There are other names -- Wirt Yerger, Billy Mounger, the late Evelyn McPhail, and Billy Powell -whose names are attached to that victory as well. But in holding control of the Governor’s Mansion and taking abSid Salter solute conColumnist trol of the Mississippi Legislature in both houses for the first time since Reconstruction, there must also be a protracted nod to Gov. Haley Barbour -- who brought Washington-style party discipline and organization to the Mississippi political party that in the days of Phillips and Yerger could hold their state conventions in a veritable phone booth. With Phil Bryant as the

new governor and Tate Reeves as the new lieutenant governor, the only mystery at this point is who will lead the Mississippi House as the first Republican speaker in modern times. With the defeat of highly respected state Rep. Sid Bondurant, R-Grenada, the names most often mentioned in the GOP speaker’s race are state Rep. Philip Gunn, R-Clinton, state Rep. Herb Frierson, R-Poplarville, state Rep. Jeff Smith, R-Columbus, state Rep. John Moore, R-Brandon, and state Rep. Mark Formby, R-Picayune. Bondurant’s defeat created a scramble among some GOP legislators who had been committed to him. Republicans lawmakers say they expect and orderly internal process and several Democratic lawmakers have said they have no intention of taking the speaker’s race “to the board” on a roll call vote -- which would technically allow the speaker to eventually be named by acclamation. What isn’t expected to happen -- despite what many conservative voters

believe is a righteous anger over the last four years when Republicans were essentially shut out of committee chairmanships and from real influence on the House “money” committees (Appropriations and Ways and Means) -- is that a new GOP speaker will shut the Democrats completely out of chairmanships or seats at the table on the money committees. With control of the Governor’s Mansion, the House and Senate, Mississippi Republicans have complete control of Mississippi government. But that reality also means that without some power sharing, the GOP likewise will be assigned -- rightly or wrongly -- total responsibility for problems that arise in government over the next four years. With the party switch of state Sen. Gray Tollison of Oxford, Lt. Gov.-Elect Tate Reeves will enjoy a GOP super majority in the state Senate. Such won’t be the case for the new GOP House speaker. In order to pass key legislation, the Republican majority in the

House will need some level of political rapport with the Democrats. For Gov.-Elect Phil Bryant, the prospects of furthering his personal policy agenda will now revert to the same system that existed when a monolithic Democratic Party control all three sides of the Iron Triangle in state government. Bryant will need the cooperation and support of Reeves and the new House speaker. One fact is undeniable. After eight years of Gov. Barbour’s leadership -- a time in which Barbour enjoyed more power than the state’s 1890 Constitution actually affords the governor -- Republicans and Democrats alike in the Legislature are ready to more forcefully assert themselves into policy decisions. But in the short term, times are grand for the Grand Ole Party in Mississippi -- a party that has decidedly outgrown that stories old phone booth. (Sid Salter is a syndicated columnist.

The character assassination of Herman Cain The real scandal in the accusations against Herman Cain is the corruption of the law, the media and politics. Let's start with the law. Some people may think the fact that the National Restaurant Thomas A s s o c i a Sowell tion reportedly paid Columnist $45,000 to settle a claim made by one of its employees against Mr. Cain is incriminating. Most of us are not going to part with 45 grand without some serious reason. But that is very different from the situation of an organization in the present legal climate. The figure $45,000 struck a chord with me because, some years ago, my wife -- who is an attorney -- was fervently congratulated when her client had to pay “only” $45,000 in a jury award when the plaintiff was demanding a million dollars, in a case that was as frivolous a lawsuit as you could find. The person who was suing was a drunk driver, whose car went out of control and slammed into a

tree. After the sheriff's deputies arrested her, she sued them on dubious charges, and the sheriff's department was glad it had to pay “only” $45,000. The department was painfully aware of the uncertainty about what ruinous costs a jury might impose on the deputies. The real scandal goes far beyond the case of Herman Cain and his accusers. The real scandal is that the law allows people to impose heavy costs on others at little or no cost to themselves. That is a perfect setting for legalized extortion. The fact that neither judges nor juries always stick to the letter of the law means that people who have zero basis for a lawsuit, under the law as written, can still create enough uncertainty to extract money from people who cannot afford the risk of going to trial. As for a $45,000 settlement, that is what an organization would pay to settle a nuisance lawsuit -- if they are lucky. If we had a legal system where judges threw frivolous cases out of court, instead of letting them go to trial, that would put a damper on legalized extortion.

If those who bring charges that do not stand up in court had to pay the other party for their legal fees -and should have to pay for their time as well -- these games could not go on. It turns out that the women making televised charges against Herman Cain have past histories that do not inspire confidence, including in at least one case a history of making similar complaints against others. Another woman who has come forward tells of Herman Cain asking her, at some conference, to see if she could locate some woman in the audience who had asked him a question, so that he could take her to dinner. This apparently struck her as suspicious. Many years ago, I was at a conference where a woman made some very insightful comments, and I took her to lunch to continue the discussion. It so happens she was a nun. Contrary to cynics, there is more than one reason for a man to take a woman to lunch or dinner. The same mainstream media whose responses to proven charges against Bill Clinton was, “Let's move on,” is not about to move on from unproven charges

against Herman Cain. What role does race play in all this? It is probably not racism, as such, that motivates these attacks on Herman Cain. The motivation is far more likely to be politics, but politics makes a prominent black conservative like Clarence Thomas or Herman Cain far more dangerous to the Democrats than an equally prominent white conservative. The 90 percent black vote for Democrats is like money in the bank on election day. A prominent black conservative who offers an alternative view of the world is a serious danger politically, because if that alternative view has the net effect of reducing the black vote for Democrats just to 75 percent, the Democrats are in big trouble at election time. In this political context, merely defeating a black conservative at the polls or at confirmation hearings is not enough. He must be destroyed as an influence in the future -- and character assassination is the most obvious way to do it.

Prentiss County sheriff wins fourth term BY BRANT SAPPINGTON & ANGELA STOREY bsappington

Prentiss County Sheriff Randy Tolar claimed an unprecedented fourth consecutive term as voters chose a new Justice Court Judge for the southern district and a new supervisor for the first district and returned two more incumbent supervisors to office during last Tuesday’s Nov. 8 general election. Voters chose to return Tolar, already the longest serving sheriff in Prentiss County history, to office for a fourth term with more than two-thirds of the votes cast. Tolar received 5,316 votes to defeat independent challengers Michael Hall who received 1,557 votes and Benny Stennett who received 855 votes according to complete, but unofficial figures including all 327 accepted absentee ballots, 26 affidavit ballots and eight curbside ballots. Democrat Angela White Pounds claimed the post of Justice Court Judge South with 2,060 votes over Republican William A. Copeland with 1,217 votes. Pounds defeated incumbent Judge Billy Sartin in the Democratic primary in August. Longtime first district

employee James Ray Plaxico (D) won the race for first district supervisor 1,103 to 520 over Todd Eaton (R). Plaxico will replace outgoing District 1 Supervisor Buddy Clark who did not seek re-election. Incumbents proved successful in the other two contested supervisor races on the general election ballot Tuesday night. Incumbent Mike Huddleston (D) defeated Republican challenger Jackie C. Tolar 1,081 to 377 to earn another term in the fourth district. Incumbent Larry Lambert (D) also defeated his challenger, Republican Gary Cleveland 981 to 298 in the fifth district. Turnout was heavy for the election. There were 7,864 ballots cast (48.32 percent) out of 16,276 active registered voters. “It was a big turnout,� said Prentiss County Circuit Clerk Mike Kelley. “More turned out to vote than I anticipated. We had a better turnout in the general election than the primary. I think the three initiatives on the ballot generated a lot of interest and the house seat.� Typically the race everyone votes in is the sheriff’s race, he said. There were 7,732 votes cast in the sheriff’s race in the general election Nov.

8 compared to a total of 7,427 votes cast in the sheriff’s race in the Democratic primary Aug. 2 — a difference of 305 more votes. Sheriff Tolar said he’s grateful for the support and trust shown to him by the voters of the county in allowing him to continue to serve them as sheriff. “This is just the biggest night of my entire career. I just truly appreciate the people and the trust they’ve shown in me,� he said. The sheriff said he’s grateful for everyone who supported him and pledged to continue to work hard and do the best job he can for every citizen in the county. Pounds said she appreciates all those who worked so hard throughout the campaign and is truly appreciative of all the kindness and support shown to her throughout the contest. “I promise that they will not be disappointed in electing me their new Justice Court Judge South,� she said. Supervisor Lambert also expressed appreciation for the support and trust of the voters in reelecting him to office. “It really makes you feel good. They’ve been really good to me and I truly appreciate what people have done for me,� he said.

Senator J.P. Wilemon Jr. was elected to another term in office in Senate District 5, which covers portions of Prentiss and Tishomingo counties. Unofficial totals show Democrat Wilemon with 9,483 votes to Republican challenger Jerry Keith’s total of 7,524. In Prentiss County, Wilemon received 4,255 votes to Keith’s 3,423. An upset appeared in the making in the race for District Attorney. Complete, but unofficial totals showed Trent Kelly defeating longtime incumbent John Young by a margin of 38,858 to 34,852. Kelly carried Prentiss County over Young by a vote of 3,863 to 3,778. Young has served as district attorney in the first district since 1975. Prentiss County voters bucked the statewide trend on Initiative 26, also known as the “Personhood Initiative�. The initiative, which sought to modify the state constitution to declare that life begins at conception, was defeated by Mississippi voters Tuesday night. In Prentiss County, the initiative found strong support with 4,637 votes in favor and 2,883 opposed. Many local races were unopposed on the general election ballot after office holders either faced no op-

Third-Grade Challenge students at Corinth Elementary School learned about communities while building models of the structures that might be found in a typical community.

My family and I truly appreciate the prayers and words of encouragement we received during the election campaign and we thank you for your support.

Students learn about communities BY KIM JOBE Corinth School District

As we move forward, we continue to ask for your help and prayers as we meet the challenges ahead. Thank You, Lowell Hinton Paid for by Lowell Hinton

Third grade Challenge students at Corinth Elementary School have recently been learning about what it takes to make up a community. Since the third grade social studies curriculum is based on communities, Challenge Teacher Angela Dickerson came up with the idea as a way to acquaint the students with the different types of communities. The group researched and created an urban community, a suburban community and a rural community.

During their research – which utilized the Internet and books - the students learned the various types of transportation that would be used in each community and how the communities depend on each other for survival. The group visited the Corinth City Hall where the head of each department spoke to the students about how a city is planned, constructed maintained and supported. The students made thinking maps to compare the structures that might be found in each community, and they decided which structure they wanted to build. The materials for the buildings were brought into the school from home. The students recycled packaging equipment to construct the buildings with. Using paint, glue, clay and markers, the students completed each building. The buildings were then situated into tabletop communities. Streets, vehicles and people were added to complete the display. Students elected a mayor for each community – Tucker Brown, Frank Archer Davis and Cole Clark. Will Verdung was chosen to serve as the building inspector. Parents were invited to view the projects on a Sunday afternoon. According to Ann Woodhouse, another Challenge teacher at CES, the students learned that different types of communities depend on one another for certain goods and services; that communities are planned out well in advance of construction, that there is a lot involved in running a city other than just buildings ie transportation, street layout, drainage, sewer systems and taxes; that students can look forward to being community leaders in the future.

A for sale sign hangs in front of a home in Millis, Mass. Homeowners trying to sell their property during wintertime can use staging and the lack of competition to their advantage.

Tips for wintertime home sellers BY DAVE CARPENTER Associated Press

CHICAGO — Just your luck — you have to sell your home in winter, the slowest and dreariest sales season of all. But cheer up. You can use staging, the reduced competition and some seasonal opportunities to your advantage. “You wouldn’t necessarily choose to sell your home in winter,” says Katie Severance, a broker for ReMax in Upper Montclair, N.J. “But there are certain extra steps you can take to really help your chances.” Many homeowners pull their houses off the market by year’s end if they haven’t sold. The period from Thanksgiving through New Year’s Day is the slowest time of year for home shopping as people focus on family and holidays. The weather, too, helps put the chill in sales in most locations between now and spring. January and February see the fewest home sale closings, according to the National Association of Realtors, with the market not fully gearing up until April and May. Sometimes a job transfer, lease or personal circumstances require plunging into making a sale in the dead of winter. Although that means fewer buyers in most areas, as a seller you’ll have a chance to stand out in a thinnedout field of competitors.

“If it’s priced properly, it will sell any day of the year.” Katie Severance Real estate broker

“And if you can leave at least a few pieces of furniture behind, it has more of an impact.”

thorough job. It’s important for reasons of safety, aesthetics and, once again, competition. In particular, a foreclosed house probably won’t have walks and parking spaces shoveled out, and “people don’t like to deal with that,” says Holden Lewis, real estate expert for

Loren Keim Real estate broker

Remember the basics Taking care of needed maintenance and repairs is obligatory in any season. A thorough cleaning and getting rid of clutter are equally essential. And tidying the yard and touching up the exterior appearance to improve curb appeal also can make a difference. In a slow market, nothing counts more than pricing aggressively. Check recent sale prices in your neighborhood and price your home competitively. “If it’s priced properly, it will sell any day of the year,” says Severance.

Think warm and cozy Home staging takes on a new focus in winter. To convey a cozy impression in winter, it may behoove you to turn up the thermostat and have a fire in the fireplace for open houses.

Staging may in fact be even more important in winter, according to Loren Keim, a real estate broker and professor of real estate at Lehigh University. “If you have a vacant house in winter with the heat turned down to 50, chances are someone will make a very low offer,” he says. “And if you can leave at least a few pieces of furniture behind, it has more of an impact.” Displaying photos of how your property looks in summer is a good idea. Some staging experts also recommend decorating with warm colors such as deep orange or crimson.

Neatly shoveled paths make a difference It might seem obvious to keep sidewalks and driveways free and clear of ice and snow. But many homeowners who have already vacated their houses don’t do a

Good lighting is essential Your home may appear darker due to less daylight. Fight the gloom. Turn on all the lights possible for visitors. Open blinds, drapes and shutters to let natural light pour in. Make sure to clean any grime off the windows first.

Tasteful holiday decorations can help The holidays give you an extra chance to make your home stand out. Keep decorations conservative and don’t overdo it on outdoor lighting. You don’t want to put 25,000 lights on the roof like Clark Griswold in “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.” As sure as he blacked out the neighborhood, you would scare off buyers. But a big red bow on the For Sale sign and some holiday greenery, twinkling lights and elegant decorations inside can help give buyers a dose of seasonal cheer.

United CEO sees more passenger choice — for a fee BY JOSHUA FREED AND SCOTT MAYEROWITZ Associated Press

NEW YORK — Jeff Smisek says he was drawn to the airline business for a simple reason: the complexity. “People who love challenges get into this business,” says Smisek, a former corporate lawyer turned airline CEO. He faces many as he tries to combine United and Continental into the world’s largest airline. Most of his day is spent integrating the airlines’ different cultures, fleets and unions. Managing skyhigh fuel costs is also high on his to-do list. And before he leaves the office, Smisek reads as many emails as he can, including those from passengers upset they got stuck with the middle seat. The combined airline is targeting business travelers who tend to pay more for last-minute tickets and focusing on lucrative international routes. The airline is also looking at new ways to get more money from

passengers. Smisek says airlines probably won’t add more baggage fees. However, there will be plenty of other extra services that his airline will offer, for a fee. Smisek sat down with The Associated Press and discussed the economy, airfares, and why air travel was never glamorous. Q: What’s your take on the economy and how that might affect air travel? A: We have a lot of different geographies we operate in. Latin American markets are doing extremely well. The Pacific market is doing well. The European market is actually holding up far better than I would anticipate given all the turmoil. And the U.S. market is just sort of chugging along, sort of sideways. We’re not seeing any decrease in business travel. We’re not seeing any increase. Q: Are there two or three big changes

that air travelers will see in the next five years? A: We have an enormous amount of data about our consumers that we do not adequately use today. You’re going to see more targeted marketing, on an individual basis. We know how frequently they travel, where they travel, when they travel. Often we know whether they’re renting a car, or a hotel. We know their propensity to upgrade or buy an upgrade. Q: Is there anything that will make airfare pricing less complicated? A: No. I think what you’re going to see is more choice. And choice can become complex. Q: A lot of people love to hate the airlines. Do they expect too much from you? A: We’re in the business of getting people safely from point A to point B, on time, with their underwear. That’s what we do for a living

and we are really good at it. The mental image people have of the glamour of flying was when flying was unaffordable. When I was a child, I didn’t fly — we couldn’t afford to fly. Flying was for rich people. Today, flying is for everybody. Q: Are there any foreign airlines doing things you think are especially innovative? A: I like to fly competitors, because I learn. I like to go spy on them. We’re not proud. We’ll copy anything that makes sense. I can’t think of any particular item where we’ve gone, “Wow, we should do that,” but we’re always looking for it. Q: Is consolidation good for consumers? A: Ultimately, yes. It’s bad for consumers to have airlines that are always on the brink of insolvency, that are subject to potential strikes by labor, who cannot be depended on to be there the next day.

No. 4 Alabama recovers with MSU BY DAVID BRANDT Associated Press

STARKVILLE, Miss.— Alabama is done feeling sorry for itself. Now the Crimson Tide’s back to inflicting pain on the opposing team. Trent Richardson rushed for 127 yards and a touchdown, Alabama’s defense gave up just 131 total yards and the fourth-ranked Crimson Tide beat Mississippi State 24-7 on Saturday night. “After a loss like last week, a win is the only medicine,” Richardson said. It was a typical no-frills victory for Alabama (9-1, 6-1 Southeastern Conference), which has won nine of its last 11 against Mississippi State, including four straight. The Crimson Tide defense has

held 11 straight opponents to 14 points or less. Alabama struggled again with field goals, missing two of them in the first half after missing four in last week’s 9-6 loss to No. 1 LSU. But Richardson and Eddie Lacy, who rushed for 96 yards and two touchdowns, made up for those miscues. “We had a slow start,” Lacy said. “They had a lot of energy, but energy only lasts so long.” Mississippi State (5-5, 1-5) remains one victory from bowl eligibility. Third-year coach Dan Mullen is now 2-11 against SEC Western Division rivals, with both victories coming against Ole Miss. The Bulldogs averaged just 2.2 yards per play.

Richardson didn’t have his typical Heisman-caliber performance, finding little running room against Mississippi State’s defense, especially in the first half. But he got stronger as the game progressed, with an explosive 25-yard run early in the fourth quarter to Mississippi State’s 4. Two plays later, he plowed through the line for a 2-yard touchdown that gave the Tide an insurmountable 17-0 lead. He had 88 of his yards rushing in the second half and carried a huge workload all night, with a season-high 32 carries. Alabama coach Nick Saban was pleased how his team bounced back after last Please see MSU | 9A

Louisiana Tech roars past suffering Rebels The Associated Press

OXFORD, Miss. — This wasn’t what the lame duck head coach of the Mississippi Rebels, Houston Nutt, was hoping for. It was worse. Louisiana Tech, brushing off an early touchdown deficit, roared back for a 27-7 win Saturday night over Nutt’s beleaguered Rebels before a less-than-announced homecoming crowd of 44,123.

“It’s difficult,” Nutt said. “When things go wrong, they snowball. That’s where we are.” Nutt was informed Monday that he would not return as the Ole Miss coach next season. Dashing hopes that the Rebels would rally on the field in their final three games, they suffered their fifth consecutive loss, falling to 2-8. Louisiana Tech (6-4) won

its fifth consecutive game and first against a Southeastern Conference opponent since a 22-14 win over Mississippi State in 2008. The win also snapped a season losing streak to Mississippi teams. Earlier this season, the Bulldogs lost to Southern Mississippi 19-17 and to Mississippi State 26-20 in overtime. Chad Boyd and Javontay

Crowe scored on a 33-yard fumble return and a 26-yard interception return, respectively, in the second half, to seal it for the Bulldogs. The Rebels led early, scoring on a 34-yard touchdown pass from Randall Mackey to Brandon Bolden on the game’s second possession. Louisiana Tech led 10-7 at Please see REBELS | 9A

Murray throws 4 TDs as Georgia rips Auburn BY PAUL NEWBERRY The Associated Press

ATHENS, Ga. — Georgia is closing in on a trip to the Southeastern Conference championship game. Auburn is a long way from playing for another title. Aaron Murray threw four touchdown passes to surpass Matthew Stafford’s school record and the No. 14 Bulldogs, with a dominating first-half performance, romped past the defending national cham-

pions 45-7 Saturday to move within one win of clinching the SEC East. The Bulldogs (8-2, 6-1 SEC) won their eighth in a row with a dominating performance in the Deep South’s oldest rivalry. They raced to a 35-7 halftime lead over the No. 24 Tigers (6-4, 4-3) and finished with their biggest win in the series since a 41-0 triumph in 1946. Georgia will be at home next weekend against Ken-

tucky, looking to clinch its first division title in six years and completely snuff out any talk about Mark Richt’s coaching future. The Bulldogs have bounced back from a losing season in 2010 and an 0-2 start to this year. Murray threw all his scoring passes by halftime, giving him 27 TDs on the season and nine in the past two weeks. He broke the school mark of 25 set by Stafford in 2008 before he was picked No. 1 overall in

the NFL draft. With 92,000-seat Sanford Stadium as loud as it’s been in years, Georgia scored on four of its first five offensive possessions — the only glitch was the first of two fumbles by freshman Isaiah Crowell, Auburn fumbled right back to Georgia. Murray threw touchdown passes of 8 yards to Tavarres King, 27 yards to Michael Bennett, 15 yards to Bruce Figgins and 25 yards to Malcolm Mitchell.

MSU: Kicking slows down Alabama CONTINUED FROM 8A

week’s emotional loss to LSU. The setback put a serious dent in the Tide’s national championship hopes, though there’s still an outside shot at a second title in three seasons. “There was a challenge presented to them after the difficult circumstances of last week,” Saban said. “And they responded.” Alabama could’ve had a bigger lead much sooner, but struggled once again with the kicking game. The Tide missed two field goals — a 49-yard attempt by Cade Foster and a 31-yarder by Jeremy Shelley — before taking a 7-0 lead in the second quarter after Lacy’s 2-yard touchdown run. But Mississippi State’s kickers couldn’t kick straight either. The Bulldogs blew their best opportunity late in the first half when Cameron Lawrence intercepted A.J. McCarron’s pass and returned it to the Alabama 4-yard line. But the ensuing three plays lost yards, and Brian Egan missed a 29-yard field goal as Mississippi State came up empty. McCarron completed 14 of 24 passes for 163 yards and an interception.

REBELS: Turnovers plague offense CONTINUED FROM 8A

halftime, tying the game on a 21yard touchdown pass from Colby Cameron to Taulib Ikharo and a 43-yard field goal by Chad Nelson on the first half’s final play. Nelson added a 34-yard field goal in the third quarter before the defensive touchdowns ended any hopes of an Ole Miss rally. The Rebels managed only 307 yards in total offense, had three turnovers and missed a pair of field goals. Mississippi kicker Bryson Rose, who had hit 17 consecutive field goals over a two-year period, missed from 36 and 52 yards. Rose was within one kick of tying the SEC record set by Tennessee’s Fuad Reveiz in 1982. “It was a living nightmare,” Ole Miss offensive coordinator David Lee said. “I’m embarrassed.” Nutt admitted his surprise at the offense’s problems, especially after an impressive showing in the early scoring series. “Louisiana Tech is a good team. They deserve credit.” Nutt said. “Our defense did some good things. But you’ve got to score points. It’s that simple.” Brandon Bolden led the Ole Miss offense with 112 tandem yards in rushing and receiving. But after accounting for 55 yards in the early 78-yard scoring drive, he was not a factor the rest of the way. “It’s just the way the ball bounced. It wasn’t bouncing our way this game, and it hasn’t been bouncing our way this season,” Bolden said. “We just have to go out there and keep fighting.” Hunter Lee rushed for 127 yards on 24 carries as the Bulldogs rolled up 350 total yards. Cameron finished 13 of 27 for 180 yards.

Johnson’s 2 TDs leads Arkansas past Vols BY KURT VOIGT The Associated Press

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arkansas is having its way with the East Division of the Southeastern Conference. Dennis Johnson accounted for 140 total yards and a pair of touchdowns to help No. 8 Arkansas beat Tennessee 49-7 for its sixth consecutive victory. The Razorbacks (9-1, 5-1) kept alive their hopes for a second-straight BCS bowl game — and possibly more. They also earned their seventh straight win against an SEC East opponent. Johnson led Arkansas with 97 yards rushing, including a 71-yard touchdown run in the first half. He also had 43 yards

receiving. Jarius Wright added five catches for 94 yards, setting the school record for career receptions. Wright now has 154 catches, moving ahead of Anthony Eubanks’ previous record of 153. Joe Adams made a pair of catches to reach 153 for his career, including a 40-yard touchdown. Rajion Neal had an 11-yard TD run for the Volunteers (4-6, 0-5). Freshman Justin Worley, making his third straight start in place of the injured Tyler Bray, was 15 of 29 passing for 210 yards for Tennessee. But Worley also had a costly interception late in the first half.

The Razorbacks had no such critical mistakes while remaining in the SEC and national championship picture. In addition to Wright’s record-setting night, he and Adams combined to provide two of the more spectacular highlights of Arkansas’ season. Adams’ gem was his 60-yard punt return for a touchdown, his third of the season and fourth off his career. The Razorbacks were leading 7-0 late in the first quarter when Adams fielded a Matt Darr punt and initially made a move to his right. When the Tennessee return team collapsed on Adams, he backed up and turned to the

left as though he were about to flip the field. When that closed down, Adams turned back to the right — with the Volunteers bouncing off and sliding over him — and streaked down the sideline before slamming down the ball once he crossed the goal line. The rout was on after that, but the highlights were far from finished. Wright tied Eubanks’ mark in the second quarter on a 40-yard pass from Tyler Wilson. Wright reached around Tennessee cornerback Justin Coleman to tip the ball up, and it eventually bounced again off his facemask before he was able to dive back and snare the ball just before it hit the turf.

Promising deer season lies ahead for hunters In the week ahead many area sportsmen will be busy rounding up their hunting gear, making sure guns are sighted in, and putting the finishing touches on their game plans in anticipation for what could be considered the Super Bowl of all hunting season opening days. Mississippi and Tennessee will both be opening their first gun season for deer next Saturday, Nov. 19. The Mississippi season goes through Dec. 1 as usual, before giving way

to the special archery and primitive weapons season running from Dec. David 2-15. Green Tennesseeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gun Outdoors season, however, is structured quite differently from anytime in the past. There is no longer a second season. The gun season goes non-stop from the time it opens all the way through till Jan. 1, 2012.

In recent years, only archery equipment could be used during the period between the first and second gun seasons. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s apparent the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency heard enough grumbling from their constituents and finally decided to make the change. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good thing, too, if you ask me. Not all hunters bow hunt, and besides, this period is right smack dab in the middle of the rut; the time which will likely be your best chance in harvesting that

monster buck youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been after for so long. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d sure hate to know I only had a stick and string in my hand if I happened to see a huge buck somewhere off in the distance just standing there and looking back as if he was taunting and challenging me to do something about it. Hunters in Tennessee do not have as long of a season as those in Mississippi, but with the new season structure, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost a given more trophy bucks are going to be taken this year. No deer hunter Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever known has had any trouble in getting pumped up for opening day, but just for good measure, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to throw my two cents worth in on why we should have a better than average deer season as a whole. Overall deer harvest numbers have been down slightly in the region over the last few years, mainly because of plentiful food resources which caused

daytime movements to be less frequent since deer feed mostly at night. Food is in abundance again this year, but with past lower harvest rates and the deer population showing a healthy increase, there will be more deer competing for the same food sources. This should work in favor of the hunter. That is, if we have favorable weather for hunting. Plentiful food supplies and past lower harvests also means thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be more mature bucks left out there roaming the woods competing for the femaleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attention. There were some exceptional bucks taken from the region last year, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m expecting even more this time around. And more than likely some of them will have impressive body weights to go along with their headgear. While Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m at it, might as well make a prediction Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure car insurance companies donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to

hear. Deer hunters wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mind however. Considering the weather trend and other factors figured in, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m expecting to see a deer population explosion like weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never seen before in the next few years. The first gun season was as slow as Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever seen last year, and it will probably be a little tough again this time, but as the season goes on and the rut gets nearer, everyone who puts their time in should be able to have back-straps for breakfast instead of having to settle for the usual mainstays of greasy sausage and bacon. The countdown is on to what appears to be a promising deer season. Hope youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got your game plan together for opening day. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to just be in the playoffs. You want to win the whole thing. Heck, if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve studied your playbook and the stars are aligned, you could feel like an MVP by dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s end.

Company makes top-notch calls Associated Press

Because I hunt ducks only intermittently, I was not aware until the fall of 2003 that we have one of the nations top manufacturers of duck calls located here in Mississippi. Flextone Game Calls are the products of Wiley Outdoor Products of Starkville. I met Tom Wiley in October of 2003 and got to know him well during an extended deer and duck hunt on his hunting lease near Port Gibson. His Flextone calls, beginning then to be sold nationwide, have a fascinating technology the origin of which is almost inconceivable. Tom was working in a Starkville hospital as an Paid for by Gina Rogers Smith

emergency room nurse when, while cleaning up the trauma room, he became entangled with a chest tube that had been used on an injured man. The tube caught his attention while his mind was on duck hunting, as it often was during his seven to seven nighttime shifts. The tubing looked about the right size to hold a duck call reed assembly, so he cut off a piece and inserted a reed from another duck call. He was looking for a way to make duck calls cheaply. Acrylic duck calls were just coming onto the market and they were expensive. This night shift nurse was already braiding call lan-

yards during down time at the hospital and selling them to friends. What Tom Wiley discovered that night was that the call sounded more like a duck than the calls then on the market. He well knew how ducks sounded because he had been a hunter since his BB gun days with his grandfather around Lexington, Mississippi and for several years he had been addicted to duck hunting. He had called in his first duck near Carthage early in his hunting life. When Wiley began making the â&#x20AC;&#x153;chest tubeâ&#x20AC;? calls by hand, he and a friend went on a hunt near Grenada and took a limit of ducks.

Defeat may not end ‘personhood’ efforts in state BY JEFF AMY Associated Press

JACKSON — The “personhood” proposal contained in Initiative 26, or something like it, could resurface next year in the Mississippi Legislature, Republican Gov.-elect Phil Bryant said. But he stepped back from comments he made before the election that the anti-abortion initiative’s defeat would mean victory for Satan. Mississippi already has some of the nation’s toughest abortion regulations, and Bryant noted that anti-abortion bills are often introduced. “I would be very surprised if a member of the Legislature didn’t introduce some legislation similar to that,” the Republican said Wednesday. Voters rejected the proposed state constitutional amendment by a 58 percent to 42 percent margin on Tuesday, with 98 percent of precincts reporting. The amendment would have defined

life as beginning at fertilization. It sought to ban abortion, and many physicians said it could have made some birth control illegal, as well as deterring some doctors from performing in vitro fertilization. Some lawmakers already are looking at further ways to regulate or restrict abortion, said state Sen. Michael Watson, RPascagoula. “I think it’s going to be something that a lot of senators talk about because of the amendment,” Watson said Friday, adding that some abortion opponents were surprised by the defeat. Bryant backed away from comments he made at a rally Monday in Tupelo. Standing next to the Rev. Donald Wildmon, founder of the American Family Association on election eve, Bryant said the defeat of Initiative 26 would mean “Satan wins.” After the election, Bryant seemed to offer only lukewarm

support for a rerun of the personhood debate. “I believe there could have been a better job at presenting the information on 26,” Bryant said when asked if he believed Satan had won. “The people of the state of Mississippi have spoken on that issue, and one thing I’ve learned to do is listen to the people.” Bryant said he was upset because he felt opponents were distorting the issues. “When any political issue is in front of the people, all I ask is that the truth be told,” he said. “We can certainly differ on our opinions, but I hope we could keep the facts together.” Republican Gov. Haley Barbour, who voiced doubts about the amendment but ultimately said he voted for it, said Thursday that he thought proponents had erred in putting the amendment on the ballot through a petition instead of going through the Legislature.

“If it had gone to the Legislature, the wrinkles in it would have been worked out, the ambiguities would have been understood and eliminated. Instead, these were some people from Colorado who had an initiative they tried twice to pass in Colorado and they couldn’t,” Barbour said. “And they thought, ‘What’s the most pro-life state in the country?’ Well it’s Mississippi. So they came to Mississippi with a halfbaked initiative.” Sen. Chris McDaniel, R-Ellisville, said he would consider retooling the amendment. “That exact language has been soundly rejected and I don’t think that would by a wise political move, but to improve upon the language would be a possibility,” said McDaniel, a leading abortion foe among lawmakers. Les Riley of Pontotoc, head of Personhood Mississippi, an affiliate of Personhood USA, an

umbrella group for similar efforts around the nation, said he is considering the best course of future action. Revising language in the Legislature is one possible route. “We’d like to answer their concerns and answer those questions and see if Mississippi voters and legislators would pass legislation to protect every life,” Riley said Friday. One voter who’d need to be persuaded is Kim Bourn of Madison, an accountant and married mother of two. She said Initiative 26 was potentially too far-reaching. Bourn, now 40, said that during her first pregnancy, in 1994, she was carrying a daughter that she and her husband had already decided to name Meredith Anne. At 20 weeks, halfway into the pregnancy, her doctor in Starkville discovered the baby had a fatal defect — the heart would pump fluid in but not out.

As Cain, Perry scramble, Gingrich seeks opening Associated Press

WASHNGTON — Mitt Romney chugged ahead Thursday as the conservative-fueled drive to deny him the Republican presidential nomination reached a difficult new phase: Once-surging rivals Rick Perry and Herman Cain scrambled to control serious damage, while an old face sought new ways to exploit their problems. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich could emerge as the newest hope for conservative activists who doubt Romney’s commitment to their priorities. But Gingrich trails Romney and others in organizing in key states such as Iowa. And he will have to prove that his long and sometimes troubled political

history can withstand closer scrutiny. Meanwhile, Texas Gov. Perry rearranged his schedule Thursday to try to mitigate a disastrous debate moment, in which he could not remember the third federal agency he has vowed to abolish. Perry canceled a Tennessee fundraiser to appear on several TV networks and the David Letterman show, pledging to stay in the race. He repeatedly said he “stepped in it” at the Wednesday night debate but declared in an interview, “This ain’t a day for quitting nothing.” For Cain, the former pizza company executive, it was day 11 of trying to get beyond sexual harassment accusations leveled

against him by four women, two of whom received cash settlements from a trade association Cain once headed. Facing voters for the first time since the allegations emerged, Cain met with tea party groups in Michigan, hoping the friendly settings would preserve the lofty perch he enjoyed in GOP polls two weeks ago. “How you beat Obama? Beat him with a Cain!” he told one supporter at a crowded diner in Ypsilanti. The crowd cheered. He is airing his first TV ad in Iowa, and he has hired a new lawyer who is warning women they will be scrutinized for any charges made against the candidate. Late Thursday word

came that attempts to organize a joint news conference with the four women alleging Cain harassed them had fallen apart. Joel Bennett, the attorney for Karen Kraushaar, said his client had decided not to hold the news conference “unless and until the other women come forward and wish to participate.” Romney, the former Massachusetts governor who recently filmed a TV ad in Iowa, blasted President Barack Obama’s Iran policy in a Wall Street Journal opinion piece Thursday. His supporters quietly reveled in the good fortune of Perry’s and Cain’s woes. With the Iowa caucus set for Jan. 3, and the New Hampshire primary a week after that, Romney is looking strong, but he’s hardly home free. Many conservatives still resent his past support of legalized abortion and gay rights, and his requirement that all Massachusetts residents obtain

has in months. With Romney widely seen as the front-runner in New Hampshire, a rival must do well in Iowa to surpass him. Gingrich is popular with many Iowa Republicans, and he drew good reviews for his speech at a large dinner in Des Moines last week. But he has little structure in place for the organizationally intensive caucuses, which require people to show up for gatherings on a midwinter night. Gingrich has not done much of the retail-level campaigning seen by past successful caucus candidates. His schedule in the next 10 days shows him visiting the state to promote a movie he produced with his wife and participate in a multi-candidate event aimed at social conservative activists Gingrich has had no paid staff in Iowa since a mass exodus of his campaign team in June. He plans to name a staff and open campaign headquarters in Iowa soon, “What I’m seeing now is a real surge of energy” for Gingrich, said supporter Linda Upmeyer, Iowa’s House majority leader. “The bright, shiny things have come and gone, and now people are focusing on a decision.” A key question is whether Romney will see Cain’s and Perry’s problems as a chance to make a big push in Iowa. A win there would make him the prohibitive favorite. But to fare poorly after raising expectations would echo his disappointing Iowa performance four years ago. Romney has made only four public visits to Iowa this year. But a small core of advisers and staff keeps in close touch with key elements of the Iowa network he assembled in 2007.

health insurance. But they have failed to coalesce around a single alternative. Rep. Michele Bachmann briefly topped the polls, followed by Perry and then Cain. It’s unclear whether Cain can hold his position. Some Iowa Republicans hope former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, who emphasizes social conservative issues such as abortion and gay rights, can make a move. He has visited all 99 Iowa counties and aired radio commercials. Other party insiders feel the person best poised to rise is Gingrich, the fiery Georgian who led the GOP’s 1994 takeover of the House (after 40 years in the minority). He eventually lost his leadership post and left the House after clashing with President Bill Clinton over taxes and an unpopular government showdown. Gingrich is adding staff in key states, opening new offices this week and raising more money than he

Wedding cake ideas can be non-traditional BY PATTI DRAPALA MSU Ag Communications

MISSISSIPPI STATE — In the minds of many brides and grooms, the perfect wedding cake is one that acknowledges tradition yet reflects individuality, and most cake decorators can make the couple’s dreams come true. Cake decorators use skill, experience and creativity to turn the wishes of the bride and groom into a showpiece that draws the admiration of the wedding guests. The cake must look good, but it also has to taste good to succeed. “People eat with their eyes first,” said assistant Extension professor Jason Behrends of the Food Science, Nutrition and Health Promotion Department at Mississippi State University. “If it looks good, the mind perceives it will taste better than something that does not.” Behrends coordinates the department’s educational effort to teach students how to combine culinary arts, food science and food technology to make the appearance and taste of food a pleasurable experience. Successful wedding cake designers base their business on the principle of food that is prepared to look as good as it tastes. “By practicing this principle, cake decorators can take a plain-but-flavorful sheet cake, and dress it up to make it more appeal-

ing,” Behrends said. “And, they know the bride’s cake should be elegant and possess the ‘wow factor,’ while the groom’s cake can be more adventurous.” The bride’s cake traditionally has been several tiers of plain, white pound cake covered with white, buttercream frosting and garnished with flowers, scrolls, scallops or ribbons. The clean, elegant, classic lines those traditional cakes exude are hard to surpass. Some brides dare to be different, however, and ask the cake designer to incorporate more color, flavor and fillings. “Spot color on the bride’s cake can create an elegant effect,” said Starkville cake decorator Carol Taylor, owner of The Cake Box by Sweet Temptations. “Color used as an accent can create a beautiful effect, but it must be used sparingly.” Fondant, a sugary icing that resembles dough, gives decorators an additional option because it creates a super-smooth cake surface. It can be rolled, modeled, handpainted and airbrushed. “If a bride came to us and wanted a cake covered in maroon fondant, we would do our best to create such a cake,” said Lorrie Bryan, cake decorator for the MSU Fountain Bakery. “It does take skill and time to mix colors to create the right shade of Mississippi State

maroon.” Fondant must be rolled into very thin layers and applied correctly to prevent wrinkles and air bubbles. Smoothing the fondant does take considerable time, but the effect is worth the effort, Taylor said. Other decorative food materials, such as modeling chocolate, gum paste or even cereal, make more options possible. “Some brides are choosing nontraditional materials for cakes,” said Sylvia Byrd, MSU associate professor of food science, nutrition and health promotion. “I recently attended a wedding where the reception featured a cake made out of crisped rice cereal. The bride apparently decided to move away from the traditional type of cake for her wedding.” Inedible bride-andgroom figurines that once topped most wedding cakes have all but disappeared. Fondant and other edible materials give the decorator an opportunity to create flower bouquets, monograms and symbols for the cake’s top tier. These cake toppers usually are edible. “A wedding is your day,” Behrends said. “If you have an idea, tell the decorator. Most professionals want to work with you and make your dreams come true. You won’t know what is possible if you don’t ask.”

New marriages can be tough for pets BY CHEREE FRANCO MSU Ag Communications

MISSISSIPPI STATE — In the chaos of organizing a wedding, brides and grooms sometimes overlook how tough the transition may be for their furry, feathered and hoofed friends. Blending pet families can be stressful for both humans and animals, but foresight and attention to detail help ensure a successful adjustment. “The biggest mistake pet owners make is not planning ahead,” said Dr. Joey Burt, chief of community veterinary services with Mississippi State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. “Don’t throw pets together and hope they’ll work it out; they won’t.” While the animals still have separate residences, Burt recommends a towel exchange. “Rub your furry pets with a towel and send it to the other animal’s home, so they can begin getting used to each other’s scent. Then switch back, so the scents are blended. This may neutralize the actual introduction.” “It’s not dogs and cats that have problems with each other. Usually it’s dogs and dogs and cats and cats,” he said. “We all have bad days. If your pet is particularly grumpy today, don’t push it. You want everybody in a positive mood when you start this process.” For dogs, Burt advised finding a neutral place -- that is, neither home -- for the initial introduction. At first they should be leashed and given simple commands in

each other’s presence, to ensure responsive, obedient mindsets. “If things are going smoothly and the dogs seem curious, bring them into contact while leashed,” Burt said. “Then you can take the dogs off lead and allow them to play. This may happen in one session, or it may take several meetings.” He recommends removing toys and food during the introduction and offering these items only under supervision for a few weeks. “Use a barrier during feedings,” he said. “With a bowl on either side of the door, dogs can hear and smell each other and sense each other’s presence while something pleasurable is happening. It’s positive reinforcement. And when you’re ready for toys, give each dog a toy at the same time, so they don’t have anything to be territorial over.” Introducing cats is even trickier, said Burt. “Cats have a certain threshold, and you never know what that threshold is,” Burt said. “One cat may want to be the only cat in the house, while another may tolerate five cats but gets upset with the sixth.” Burt encouraged owners to give each cat time to explore. “Bring the new cat in while the old cat is put away,” he said. “After the new cat has explored, put it away and bring the old cat out, so that it can wander around and smell the new cat in its home.” Until the cats grow comfortable with each other, pet owners should

provide extra litter-boxes. In general, a good number of litter boxes is the number of cats plus one. “If you have two cats, you need three litter-boxes, so that there is neutral area,” said Burt. “Cats are territorial with smells and marking.” Synthetic pheromones are safe and may help calm cats, but Burt advised using them only if necessary. “Consult with a veterinary behaviorist so that you know how to use them appropriately,” he said. Burt often encounters pet owners who don’t get professional help soon enough. “If a couple of months have passed and you’re still having problems, you should contact a veterinarian or a behaviorist,” he said. “I might forgive the first fight, but the second time animals attack each other, it’s time to try other remedies. These may be specially designed antianxiety toys or in extreme cases, antianxiety medication.” When pets have a natural predator/prey relationship, such as the one between dogs and rabbits, owners should be extremely cautious with introductions and may not ever be able to leave their pets alone together. Burt emphasized that owners should be receptive to their pets’ individuality. “Even when things appear to be going well, owners should watch for signs of stress in their pets: hiding, changes in eating and elimination habits and excessive grooming,” Burt said.

Daily Corinthian • Sunday, November 13, 2011 • 3B

Horoscopes by Holiday BY HOLIDAY MATHIS Sharing is caring. The day is one conversation after another, including some between you and you. You’ll get ideas while visiting with friends. It will be nearly impossible not to be struck with at least one really good idea by tomorrow morning. The Gemini moon spins our mental wheels even when we’re sleeping. ARIES (March 21-April 19). So few people are paying attention to one another now. Be the rare exception, and you’ll instantly win people to your side. The more actively aware you are the bigger your team will be. TAURUS (April 20May 20). You’re thinking about starting a new project just because you’re so bored with the ones you’ve been working on. Finishing is important, so at least get closure by deciding officially that, for you, the project is over. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Most people compare what they are doing to what their friends are

doing. It’s only natural. If you’re wondering what might be the appropriate amount of time to spend on this today, the answer is none. CANCER (June 22July 22). What comes in through your five senses is registered in the emotional part of your brain first. Emotional memories will be stronger and more influential than reason. Remember this as you communicate and persuade others. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). When you’re clear about what you want and don’t have other conflicting wants, your energy moves full force in one direction. Otherwise, your energy bounces like stray pingpong balls, making little impact. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). A good reason to let go of a grudge is that it’s too costly to keep it alive. Grudges consume energy. Holding on requires a certain amount of strength -- and that’s power that you could be using somewhere else.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll have a critical edge at work and at home. Your stellar style of communication practically ensures that your colleagues will respect you and loved ones will understand you. SCORPIO (Oct. 24Nov. 21). You realize that what’s important to you is not the least bit important to someone else, and vice versa. So you’ll rely on your powers of observation to determine the choice that will make the most people happy. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Today you will not be as concerned with self-fulfillment as you will be with fulfilling the needs and ambitions of a group to which you belong. Still, you will be personally quite satisfied with how things develop. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). What you intend as honesty could come across to others as stubbornness. While you stand in your truth, be aware that there are many other truths about the

situation that you haven’t observed yet. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18). Here’s what “beauty rest” is really about: The more energy you have the more attractive you are. Make arrangements to get the most of tonight’s sleep because tomorrow brings a stellar opportunity. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You don’t have to get to the bottom of a problem in order to solve it. That will take too long. You need a remedy that will allow you to be productive today, not a year from now. And that’s just what you’ll find. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 13). A new circle will embrace you this year. You’ll connect with someone special in 2012. Your ego will be gratified at first, but soon enough, it’s your heart that really benefits. With a few key diplomatic maneuvers you make in January and February, you’ll be exactly where you want to be at work. Cancer and Virgo people adore you. Your

lucky numbers are: 20, 1, 44, 38 and 17. FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: In many ways, this week is the calm before the storm. It’s the last full week of the Scorpio solar journey in 2011. The end of the year comes on like a tornado for many. Social occasions, family holiday celebrations and taking advantage of commercial opportunities in December can be additional sources of stress. For some, the new pressure is invigorating. For many others, it’s too much and there’s a need for increased strength to deal with it all. This week offers the chance to set yourself up for a yearend in which the peace and togetherness overshadow the challenges. “Take care” becomes more than a sentiment; it’s a call to action. Take precautions to make life easier and better as you head toward the new year. Making time for exercise and sleep will be a big help. Mars in healthoriented Virgo will form a

lucky angle to Jupiter, the planet of excess, helping us to be temperate in our indulgences and moderate in mood. The creative Leo moon Wednesday through Friday infuses our holiday plans with originality, creativity and brilliant solutions. The weekend will be an excellent time for thoughtful gift buying and making logistical plans. CELEBRITY PROFILES: Though he is perhaps best known as “Sex and the City’s” Mr. Big and Peter Florrick of “The Good Wife,” Chris Noth is a versatile actor who has played a wide array of characters. This Yale graduate is a Scorpio with four luminaries in the seductive sign. Scorpio takes a highly intuitive approach to life and art and is often fearless in the exploration of his own talent.

Sandler, DiCaprio highlight new releases — Christy Lemire, AP Movie Critic

— Jake Coyle, AP Entertainment Writer



“Jack and Jill” — Very much like one of the faux Adam Sandler movies of Judd Apatow’s “Funny People,” ‘‘Jack and Jill” stars Sandler as both sides of male-female identical twins. A gleefully stupid movie more in line with Sandler’s earlier comedies than his later, more adventurous films, it’s like a joke trailer stretched into a feature film. Sandler plays Jack Sadelstein, a family man (Katie Holmes plays his wife) and TV commercial producer, whose twin sister (Sandler) visits for Thanksgiving. Sandler plays Jill as he might have for a “Saturday Night Live” sketch: She’s less a real character than a walking punch line. Jill proves useful, though, because she’s surprisingly fetching to a handful of men, most notably Al Pacino (as himself), whom Jack is trying to get to make a donut commercial. Pacino, chasing Jill with ga-ga eyes, gets most of the laughs. Sandler’s longtime filmmaking partner Dennis Dugan (”Happy Gilmore,” ‘‘Grown Ups”) directs the unapologetically idiotic comedy, which comes off like the last 15 years of comedy didn’t happen. PG for crude material including suggestive references and comic violence. 90 minutes. One and a half stars out of four.

“J. Edgar” — A riveting, noble attempt by director Clint Eastwood, now 81, to wrestle with big American questions. It’s another largely fascinating, if disappointingly flawed chapter in Eastwood’s fantastic late period. “J. Edgar” is a biopic framed around longtime FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover (a thoroughly committed, engaging Leonardo DiCaprio) dictating his life’s tale to various typists. This is Hoover’s story, mainly told through his perspective — and therefore a somewhat claustrophobic view of history. The film, from an ambitious script by Dustin Lance Black (who wrote the Harvey Milk biopic, “Milk”), opens with a lot of switches in time as the narrative rushes to pack in the rise of Hoover as a Justice Department upstart and eager riser at the nascent Bureau of Investigation. It’s a grimly propulsive first hour, pushed forward by the relentless, paranoid patter of the fast-talking Hoover. Still, the most affecting parts focus on Hoover’s two most important personal relationships: with his mother (Judi Dench) and with his No. 2 and close friend Clyde Tolson (Armie Hammer). R for brief strong language. 137 minutes. Three stars out of four. — Jake Coyle, AP Entertainment Writer

The Associated Press

“Into the Abyss” — Werner Herzog does something great reporters know how to do: He listens. He pays attention during conversation. He’s so in-the-moment, he instinctively asks the natural follow-up question, and that’s what often elicits the greatest honesty and the most unexpected emotion. Perhaps it’s his very presence that makes people feel so safe; approaching 70, the veteran director quietly probes his subjects’ histories in that mesmerizing, instantly recognizable and oftenimitated German accent of his. But he also seems genuinely engrossed in the subjects he tackles, and that purity of interest shines through. In taking on a divisive topic like the death penalty — especially in a place like Texas, where the punishment is more prevalent than in other states — Herzog never seems to be judging the people on the other side of his camera. He states at the outset that he’s opposed to capital punishment, but then goes on to interview the various people associated with a bloody triple murder without injecting that opinion. It’s hard not to be moved by the gruesome and horrifically needless crime he’s exploring. PG-13 for mature thematic material and some disturbing images. 106 minutes. Three and a half stars out of four.

fatality of Scott Plunk that I was responsible for on October 14, 1995. Although I have served all sentencing requirements imposed upon me by our legal system, I will never forget the pain I have caused his family. I do not drink, and I have not been arrested or involved in any crime prior to or since this tragic accident. I cannot erase the pain and sorrow that I caused many in the community as a foolish 18-year-old, but I hope that the remainder of my life can be used for good. Through Young Life Ministries I have counseled teenage boys on the consequences of drinking and drug use while mentoring them in their Christian faith. I humbly ask for clemency. If you have objections to this request, you may call 601-576-3520.
