Local voters go with Santorum BY BOBBY J. SMITH bjsmith@dailycorinthian.com

Tuesday’s primary election in Alcorn County saw a low, primarily-Republican voter turnout. “What we found was that not

many Democrats turned out,” said Circuit Clerk Joe Caldwell. “Most of the people voted Republican.” Out of Alcorn County’s 23,660 registered voters, only 3,608 (15.25 percent) cast bal-

County supported Rick Santorum, who netted 1,127 of the county’s votes — almost 35 percent of all votes cast in the county on Tuesday. Santorum was followed by Newt Gingrich with 1,024 votes (31.55 percent)

Drug unit plans ‘zero tolerance’ for meth makers BY STEVE BEAVERS

Erin Rainey has seen the country — all on a speedy horse. The 24-year-old has been part of team penning and ranch sorting competition since she was 6 after a friend of her father’s introduced the event. “It has been a family thing for me,” said the 2010 Mississippi State graduate. Rainey and her dad, David, have been teammates in the sport for 18 years. The two will be part of the United States Team Penning Association (USTPA) Regional Qualifying Show on Saturday at the Crossroads Arena, beginning at 9 a.m. The show — usually held at the Rainey’s Horseshoe R Arena off Highway 72 West every March — has been moved to the arena as part of Cowboy/Rodeo Week in Corinth and Alcorn County. “We have been doing this as a family for over 20 years,” said Erin’s mother Susie Rainey, who teamed with her daughter to win an event in 2005. “Erin fell in love with the sport and still loves it today.” Team penning begins with 30 cows marked zero through nine in multiples of three at one end of an arena. A team of three penners lines up and an announcer calls a number. The riders then race against the clock to strategically separate each cow with that number. Once separated, the cows must be gathered into a pen at the other end of the arena. “I just have a connection with horses,” said Erin Rainey inside the family arena. “If something

The Alcorn Narcotics Unit is sending a clear message to those involved in methamphetamine activity. There will be no letting up. “There is a zero tolerance for people who manufacture methamphetamine,” said Alcorn Narcotics Unit’s Darrell Hopkins. “It is very serious with a lot of families suffering due to use and abuse.” The unit arrested a pair of individuals involved in the illegal activity over the weekend. Lacey Diane, 30, of 79 CR 515, Corinth and Christopher James Hughes, 36, of the same address, were arrested after turning themselves in to the Alcorn County Sheriff’s Department on Saturday. Both have been charged with conspiracy to manufacture meth and currently out on bond. The two individuals were stopped on U.S. 72 prior to officers determining they were traveling to other states purchasing pseudoephedrine pills used to manufacture meth. “People who cook meth continue to persuade other people to purchase pills and bring the pills to them,” said Hopkins. “They do this so their name does not come up on record as buying the pills.” According the officer, people who purchase the pills are convinced the activity isn’t illegal. “It is illegal to purchase pseudoephedrine pills and bring back to cooks to manufacture meth,” he said. “We are not going to let up on the cookers or people who posses methamphetamine.” Hopkins says officers keep a close eye on prescriptions of pseudoephedrine along with people that go to other states to buy the pills. “Children are the most vulnerable due to being exposed to the drug by simply living in the house where cooks and smokers have been,” said Hopkins. “This is unacceptable and will not be tolerated.”

“There is a zero tolerance for people who manufacture methamphetamine. It is very serious with a lot of families suffering due to use and abuse.” Darrell Hopkins Deputy, Alcorn Narcotics Unit

Cook-off looking for volunteers, more entries BY MARK BOEHLER editor@dailycorinthian.com

Entries continue to trickle in for the 5th Annual Crossroads Chili Cook-Off, which crowns the official International Chili Society sanctioned Mississippi state champions in several categories. Organizers are hopeful a new Local Favorite category will help generate more local interest in the event as volunteers are also being asked to step forward to help as judges. The popular event will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 7, at the Corinth Depot in downtown Corinth in conjunction with the Green Market’s fourth season. “We continue to have teams sign up,” said cook-off organizer Steve Knight. “It’s still

“We continue to have teams sign up. It’s still a little early, but registrations now sure are appreciated as the number of entries will determine prize money.” Steve Knight Event organizer a little early, but registrations now sure are appreciated as the number of entries will determine prize money.” The Crossroads Chili CookOff has added a new Local Favorite Category which will be scored by sanctioned judges. The winner gets $300 and a trophy, while second and third places will depend on number of entries, said Knight. “This is something just for lo-

cal teams,” explained Knight. “We want to encourage some local friendly participation for bragging rights as to local folks who cook some good chili.” The fee is $25 and local favorites entries must have two quarts of chili for the judges and another gallon for People’s Choice. The best part for participants in the local favorite — the chili can be made ahead of time, not-

For a small fee to a charity, people get to sample chili and pick their favorite. The winner gets a trophy. “People’s Choice has been a huge success,” said Knight, as

JACKSON — Corinth School District Project Director Kim Jobe was one of 20 Mississippi public school communication officers recognized for their work recently during the recent Mississippi School Public Relations Association’s annual awards dinner. “We have so many great programs and people in our schools, and this is one way to honor their hard work in the area of communications,” said Nicole Thomas, public infor-

Preserved memorabilia at Tennessee Civil War event For the Daily Corinthian

PICKWICK DAM, Tenn. — The Tennessee State Library and Archives continues the successful Looking Back project on April 4 at Pickwick Landing State Park. This event is a rare opportunity for all Tennessee citizens and visitors with Tennessee Civil War manuscripts, artifacts and photographs to have the items digitally preserved free of charge. As part of the commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, a team of professional archivists, curators and conservators from TSLA will be on-hand starting at 10 a.m. to digitize privatelyowned Civil War records. “The great strength of this project is that it reaches out to families and com-

munities around the state and taps into that rich vein of interest in the Civil War that exists in Tennessee,” said Dr. Wayne Moore, assistant state archivist. “The quality of the photographs, documents and artifacts that people are bringing out is just extraordinary. No other state has done a Civil War digitization project of this magnitude. It allows us to create a virtual archive that will be a resource and legacy for future generations of students and Civil War scholars.” The goal of the Looking Back: The Civil War in Tennessee project is to digitize records and artifacts from all 95 counties in Tennessee and promote public interest in Tennessee’s Civil War history. The files are maintained

by TSLA and will become part of a virtual archive to be used by the general public as well as K-12 teachers and students. The state’s 2012 Sesqui-

centennial Signature Event, “Invasions by Rail and River: The Battle of Shiloh,” will be held April 4-5 at Pickwick Landing State Park in Pickwick Dam. Dur-

ing the event, the public will not only have the opportunity to have their Tennessee related Civil War memorabilia copied, but can review some of the 7,500 relics.

March Madness: Fun here, death abroad BY ROGER SIMON It is a warm and pleasant Sunday, and my Twitter stream is full of March Madness, the selection of 68 college basketball teams for the NCAA tournament. Other media are awash and aflame with it also, and soon Barack Obama’s official website will publish its own brackets, inviting citizens to match their expertise against the president’s. On Tuesday, the president and British Prime Minister David Cameron, in America on a state visit, will travel to Dayton, Ohio, to attend a first-round game between Mississippi Valley State and Western Kentucky. Both world leaders will be interviewed at halftime. My Twitter feed scrolls. Spirits rise and fall as the brackets are announced. And then I see a small, virtually buried item and click on the link that it contains. In Afghanistan, another type of March madness has occurred. A U.S. Army sergeant, a family man with two children of his own, has methodically gone from house to house in a rural south Afghan village and allegedly massacred 16 unarmed civilians, including nine children, four of them younger than 6. He then set fire to their bodies. The sergeant, The New York Times would inform us, had been assigned to “what is called a village stabilization operation.” I think we can consider that at least 16 people in that village are now permanently “stabilized.” After the shootings, President Obama is immediately briefed and issues a statement of apology. He then talks to the president of Afghanistan from the back seat of the White House limousine. Obama is on the way to a basketball game in which his daughter, Sasha, is playing. The White House releases a picture of Obama on the phone in the limo’s backseat, looking serious and concerned. After the call concludes, the official White House pool report makes clear, Obama continues to the game. One wonders what they make of all this in Afghanistan. The United States has been in that country for 10 years. After going there to destroy the al-Qaida terrorist operation that carried out the 9/11 attacks from that country, the United States has lingered. Obama has announced we will finally leave at the end of 2014, though the pace and scope of our withdrawal may be affected by facts on the ground. Meanwhile, 2012 has already proved a horrendous year. Last month, American soldiers burned copies of the Quran — “inadvertently,” we say — which led to attacks by Afghan soldiers that killed six U.S. soldiers. (Afghan soldiers and U.S. soldiers are supposed to be allies, just in case you were wondering.) Now a U.S. staff sergeant based at LewisMcChord, Wash., with 11 years in the military and three tours of duty in Iraq, has allegedly killed 16 unarmed men, women and children. The White House press briefing on Monday began with a presentation about fighting high gasoline prices, and then Jay Carney, the White House press secretary, opened things up for general questions. Did he have any statement to make about the shootings in Afghanistan? he was asked. “No,” Carney replied. A reporter then asked if “killing children in their sleep” would affect American thinking about staying in Afghanistan. No, Carney replied. “The president’s policy is to disrupt, dismantle and defeat al-Qaida and stabilize Afghanistan so Afghan security forces can stabilize their country,” he said. ABC’s Jake Tapper asked if the United States had reached its “sell by” date in Afghanistan. “We’ve been there a long time,” Carney said and then seemed to deflate slightly. “Incidents like this do not make it any easier, no question. This is a challenging time, there is no question. Our goal is not to stay any longer than we have to.” Carney was then asked whether President Obama would continue with his plan to attend the NCAA tournament on Tuesday considering the terrible events in Afghanistan. “His schedule has not changed,” Carney said. “March Madness is just getting started. Many of us around this country enjoy this. March Madness is a wonderful tradition in American sport and culture.” Message: Life is good. For those who get to live it.

Another $496 billion or cent for scientific/medical

Those numbers reflect the hard reality that no president and no Congress can solve the nation’s long-term fiscal woes without first addressing entitlement-driven structural debt and deficit problems. The 2010 Social Security Trustees report found that over the next 75 years, Social Security owed $7.9 trillion more in benefits than it will receive in tax revenues. Social Security trustees reported a $21.4 trillion unfunded liability - the difference between taxes that will be paid and benefits that will be received over the lifetimes of workers and retirees already in the system. That’s a far more ominous forecast than Congress uses to calculate the financial health of the program. And why wouldn’t Congress fudge those numbers? Congress has systematically spent through the Social Security payroll deduc-

tions paid in by workers for functions of government that had nothing to do with federal retirement benefits as a means of avoiding an honest accounting of their taxing and spending over decades. Congress further skews its reporting of Social Security’s shortfall by counting the $2.6 trillion in essentially IOUs the government has pledged to the Social Security Trust Fund – which is the fiscal equivalent of paying off your credit card balance with another credit card. At present, the federal government subsidizes citizens at retirement age by about a combined $25,000 a year in Social Security and Medicare benefits. As the oldest of the Baby Boomers began to hit 65 in 2011, the growing subsidy became unsustainable. Candidates seeking federal office in 2012 who aren’t addressing this looming fiscal train wreck should be. Sid Salter is a syndicated columnist.

Southern Indica azaleas give good performance If there’s a single shrub that could be called a staple in the Southern landscape, it has to be the azalea. Its spectacular flowering has made the azalea one of the alltime most Gary p o p u l a r Bachman landscape shrubs. Southern Here on Gardening the coast, azaleas have been putting on a show since they began blooming in early March. The progression of blooms will continue to north Mississippi by early April. One of the earliestblooming varieties is the Southern Indica azalea.

nda Ama gan Mor -7144 643 662-

Whether used as specimen plants, hedges or backgrounds, the Southern Indica has to be my favorite azalea. The blooms are huge, resembling rhododendrons, and they are produced in great quantities. The flowers are funnelformed with narrow bases and bell-shaped edges. They come in many flower colors, ranging from vivid and sparkling to pastels and pure whites. Many have speckles in the flower throats. Southern Indica azalea has the potential to be a big plant. Homeowners will comment that they have enormous plants and want to dramatically reduce their size. I’m often asked how much an azalea can be pruned

Southern Indica azalea is very pruning tolerant and can be cut back as much as needed. Regular pruning can keep them smaller and result in denser growth. Always do any pruning

right after flowering. An easy way to remember this is to finish all your pruning before July 4. The flower buds for next year are formed early in the summer. Azalea lace bug is a

common insect pest that causes leaf speckling. Lace bugs are sucking insects that live on the underside of the leaf and leave telltale spots of black frass. Another interesting insect pest is the azalea caterpillar. Its main body is black with yellow spots, and its head is red. These caterpillars can quickly strip the foliage off a plant. When bothered, the caterpillar will raise both its head and tail in a threatening manner, but it is harmless. The easiest control method is to hand pick the caterpillars and dispose of them. The azalea root system is shallow and fragile. Avoid excessive raking and disruption of the soil as this can damage the fine roots. Once an azalea is planted

in rich, well-drained soil, don’t try to move and transplant it again. Mulch your azaleas with something organic like pine needles or composted oak leaves. This is a great way to conserve soil moisture and keep landscape weeds under control. When watering azaleas, I like to use one of the acid-forming, water-soluble fertilizer formulations. Be sure the fertilizer has additional iron and other micronutrients. Give the soil around the plant a good soaking during dry conditions, and be sure to spray down the foliage. Southern Indica azaleas enhance the home landscape with their beautiful spring colors, and their relaxed growth is perfect for informal garden settings.

Obama warns China against ’skirting rules’ BY JULIE PACE Associated Press

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama warned China Tuesday that it would not be allowed to gain a competitive advantage in world trade by “skirting the rules.” Making an electionyear pitch to American workers, and businesses as well, Obama announced Washington has brought a new trade case against Beijing. The goal is to pressure China, a rising Asian economic power, to end its restrictions on exports of key materials used to manufacture hybrid car batteries, flat screen televisions and other high tech-goods. “If China would simply let the market work on its own, we’d have no objection,” Obama said during remarks in the White House Rose Garden. “But their policies currently are preventing that from happening. And they go against the very rules that China agreed to follow.” The U.S., working in conjunction with the European Union and Japan, asked the World Trade Organization Tuesday to facilitate talks with China over its curtailment of exports of what’s known as rare earth minerals. Obama cast the fresh action against China as part of a broader push to level the playing field for U.S. companies. “When it is necessary,

I will take action if our workers and our businesses are being subjected to unfair practices,” Obama said. With the U.S economy slowly recovering from recession, Obama has sought to bring a renewed focus on Chinese policies that could hinder U.S. expansion. He used an executive order last month to create a new trade enforcement agency — the Interagency Trade Enforcement Center — to move aggressively against China and other nations. But Obama’s posture on China has already surfaced as an election-year issue, with Republican front-runner Mitt Romney criticizing him for refusing so far to cite China for manipulating its currency. Romney has said he would label China a currency manipulator on his first day in office, a move that could lead to trade sanctions against Beijing. China has a stranglehold on the global supply of 17 rare earth minerals that are essential for making high-tech goods, including hybrid cars, weapons, flat-screen TVs, mobile phones, mercury-vapor lights, smartphones and camera lenses. The materials also are used in the manufacture of tiny motors, such as those used to raise and lower car windows and in consumer electronics.

China has reduced its export quotas of these rare earth minerals over the past several years to cope with a growing demand during rapid business expansion at home, although Chinese officials also cite environmental concerns as the reason for the restrictions. U.S. industry officials suggest it is an unfair trade practice that violates rules established by the WTO, a group that includes China as a member. Administration officials said Beijing’s export restrictions give Chinese companies a competitive advantage by providing them access to more of these rare materials at a cheaper price, while forcing U.S. companies to manage with a smaller, more costly supply. “America’s workers and manufacturers are being hurt in both established and budding industrial sectors by these policies,” U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk said in a statement. “China continues to make its export restraints more restrictive, resulting in massive distortions and harmful disruptions in supply chains for these materials throughout the global marketplace.” On Tuesday, a Chinese foreign ministry spokesman defended Beijing’s curbs on rare earth production as necessary to limit environmental damage and conserve scarce resources.

troops home, and, while the president has laid out a responsible path to do so, we should continue to look for every opportunity to accelerate our timeline,” Smith wrote in an opinion piece in USA Today.

Fed takes no action with better economy WASHINGTON — The Federal Reserve offered a more positive view of the economy after a burst of hiring since its last meeting. It held off taking further steps to boost the recovery and reiterated its plan to keep short-term interest rates near zero until at least late 2014. The Fed’s statement issued after Tuesday’s oneday meeting was more upbeat than the one it released in January. The Fed said the unemployment rate has declined notably and should continue to fall as the economy expands moderately

over the coming months. Household spending and business fixed investment continued to advance. And strains in the global financial markets have eased, though the Fed warned they continue to pose a threat. The statement also said rising oil and gas prices will push up inflation temporarily. But it said longer-term inflation should remain stable — repeating a view expressed by Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke earlier this month. The statement was approved on a 9-1. Atlanta Fed President Jeffrey M. Lacker dissented for the second straight meeting. The statement said Lacker doesn’t “anticipate

that economic conditions are likely to warrant exceptionally low levels of the federal funds rate through late 2014.” Stocks held their early gains. The Dow Jones industrial average was up 110 points before the Fed statement and stayed at that level shortly after the statement was released. Since the Fed’s last meeting in late January, a stream of positive economic reports has suggested the economy is doing better than the Fed anticipated. Employers added 734,000 jobs from December through February, the best three months of hiring in two years. That’s lowered the unemployment rate to 8.3 percent.  

Ally-on-ally killings muddy path for pullout WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is only beginning to calculate the pace of troop withdrawals from Afghanistan beyond this summer, facing an endgame fraught with political risk and complicated by shocking setbacks like the alleged U.S. slaughter of Afghan civilians.

House stops bid to honor Toto breed TOPEKA, Kan. — There may be no place like home, but don’t tell Toto. A Kansas House committee squashed a bid Monday to make the cairn terrier, a breed perhaps best known as that of Dorothy’s canine sidekick in “The Wizard of Oz,” the state’s official dog. Democratic state Rep. Ed Trimmer told the Wichita Eagle he plans to reintroduce the bill next year. And Brenda Moore, a South Central Kansas Kennel Club official who first proposed the idea, says she plans to drum up public support for it this summer. The animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals opposed the measure, saying it believes it would cause Kansas puppy mills to “churn out

At stake is not only President Barack Obama’s pledge to prevent Afghanistan from reverting to the terrorist haven it was before the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, but also his commitment to wind down the war while crafting a long-term security relationship with the Afghans. U.S. military commanders want to keep as many troops in the country as possible until the Dec. 31, 2014, target date for having all combat forces out. They fear a too-rapid pullout would risk surrendering the security gains they have made in recent years. But the White House faces the prospect of intensifying political pressure to end the military mission, especially after events such as the burning of Muslim holy books by U.S. troops last month that triggered a wave of Afghan violence, including the killings of at least six U.S. troops by Afghan troops. Rep. Adam Smith, DWash., a top Democrat on the House Armed Services Committee, is among those calling for a faster withdrawal. “It is time to bring our

Republican mistakenly pitches Democrats ALBIA, Iowa — A Republican congressional candidate says he’s learned to double check his campaign schedule after he mistakenly spoke at a Democratic convention in Iowa. Dan Dolan told the Quad-City Times he arrived early Saturday at the county courthouse in Albia for a Republican convention. He says his staffer asked the crowd if he could speak, and when he finished, “a guy raises his hand and says, ‘I think you want to talk to the Republicans.”’ Turns out, Democrats were meeting in the same place two hours before the Republican event was to start. Dolan, of Muscatine, Iowa, says everyone was nice about the mix-up, but he now asks “Is this the Republican convention?” before he starts talking. Dolan is running for the GOP nomination for Iowa’s 2nd Congressional District seat.  

Tallest man may have stopped growing CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Thanks to treatment by researchers at the University of Virginia Medical Center, the world’s tallest man may have reached his peak. Measuring at 8-feet-3 inches, 29-year-old Sultan Kosen of Turkey is listed in the 2011 Guinness World Records at the tallest living man. Kosen visited U.Va. in May 2010 for treatment for a disorder called acromegaly, which is usually caused by a tumor in the pituitary gland. The Richmond TimesDispatch reports that Kosen was placed on a new medication that could potentially help control the production of growth hormone and stop his continued growth. According to U.Va. officials, doctors in Turkey say Kosen has stopped growing.

Regaining lost wealth A stock rally at the end of last year helped Americans rebuild some of the wealth they lost during the Great Recession. Many responded by borrowing more for the first time since the financial crisis began in 2008, even as home values fell further. Household wealth, or net worth, rose 2.1 percent to $58.5 trillion in the October-December quarter, the sharpest gain in a year, according to the Federal Reserve. Net worth is the value of assets like homes, bank accounts and stocks, minus debts such as mortgages and credit cards. Total wealth bottomed at $50.5 trillion in the first quarter of 2009 and will need to rise another 13 percent to hit its pre-recession peak of $66.8 trillion. Greater net worth tends to boost the economy because consumers who feel wealthier spend more. Businesses respond by stepping up hiring and expansion plans. Stock portfolios rose nearly 10 percent in the fourth quarter of last year. And stocks have risen 11 percent more this year. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index is up 27 percent since early October.

Household net worth by quarter $68

Still, few are pocketing returns on their biggest investment. Home values dropped 1.3 percent in the fourth quarter to roughly $16 trillion. The value of U.S. housing is down nearly 24 percent since the recession began in December 2007. Household debt, which includes credit cards, auto and student loans, increased at an annual rate of 0.25 percent, the first increase since mid-2008. Yet credit card debt is still below pre-recession levels — borrowing fell $2.9 billion in January after four months of gains. What’s ahead? A survey of economists by The Associated Press last month found that Americans will gradually save g less and borrow more, reversing a shift toward frugality that followed the start of the Great Recession and the financial crisis. Americans have regained only half of their lost net worth since the financial crisis.

MSU hires Schaefer as women’s coach

AC opens with 3rd-place finishes BY H. LEE SMITH II

The Associated Press

STARKVILLE— Mississippi State has hired Vin Schaefer to be its next women’s basketball coach. Schaefer comes to the Bulldogs after 15 years as the associate head coach at Texas A&M. He also had an eight-year stint as the head coach at Sam Houston State before going to the Big 12. Schaefer is regarded as a defensive specialist and MSU athletic director Scott Stricklin calls him “one of the top assistant coaches in the nation.” Texas A&M made seven NCAA tournament during Schaefer’s tenure and won the national championship in 2011. Schaefer takes over for previous coach Sharon Fanning-Otis, who announced her retirement last month after 17 seasons with the Bulldogs. She leads the program in career coaching wins, with a 281-232 record.

UMass exodus: MSU ousted from NIT Associated Press

STARKVILLE — Chaz Williams scored 28 points, Sean Carter added 20 and Massachusetts outlasted Mississippi State 101-96 in double-overtime Tuesday night in the first round of the National Invitation Tournament. UMass (23-11) won the marathon game by outscoring MSU 11-6 in the second overtime. Williams shot 11 of 20 from the field, including 4 of 7

from 3-point range. “Coach just preached the will to win and that’s what I think our guys have as a collective group,” Williams said. “We just want to win. We’re tired of losing. We don’t want to go home yet and we did everything within our ability to make sure we didn’t go home.” Williams, a 5-foot-9 sophomore, briefly went down with a left knee injury, crashing

hard to the floor and writhing in pain. But he never came off the court, providing several clutch moments down the stretch while playing 47 minutes. “He means so much to the team that it’s difficult for me to take him out of the game,” UMass coach Derek Kellogg said. “He’s good and he’s tough.” Javorn Farrell scored 16 points off the bench. Raphiael

Putney added 10 points and 16 rebounds. UMass had a 72-68 lead with 2:48 remaining in regulation, but MSU’s Arnett Moultrie hit a turnaround shot and later sank two free throws with 41.1 seconds left to tie it at 72. The Bulldogs had a chance to win in regulation but Dee Bost’s 12-foot runner in traffic missed as Please see MSU | 9A

Melo Yello: Syracuse center ineligible for tourney Associated press

PITTSBURGH — Syracuse will have to chase a national championship without starting center Fab Melo, who has been declared ineligible for the NCAA tournament. The university announced Tuesday that the 7-foot Brazilian, who did not travel with the team to Pittsburgh for the second- and third-round games, won’t take part in the tournament due to an eligibility issue. The school did not elaborate. Melo missed three games earlier this season — including one of the top-seeded Or-

NCAA spokesman Erik Christianson said Syracuse, not the NCAA, declared Melo ineligible. Coach Jim Boeheim said the Orange will be “ready to play.” As he left the bus in front of the team hotel Tuesday, Boe-

heim at first said he had nothing to say. He then told The Associated Press that “all we can do is be ready to play with the guys we have.” “That’s all we can do,” he said. “There are injuries, things happen during a season. We’ll be ready to play and we’ll go play.” Melo’s sudden ineligibil-

MSU: All-Southeastern Conference players Bost, Moultrie can’t keep Bulldogs from brutal finish continued from 8A

time expired. “Every time we threw a jab, MSU came back with one of their own,” Kellogg said. “.. I think we forced them to play smaller than they are accustomed to with our press. We were fortunate to come away with a win.” Mississippi State (2112) finished a brutal final month of the season, los-

ing seven of nine games despite having two firstteam All-Southeastern Conference players in Bost and Moultrie. Moultrie scored a career-high 34 points on 12 of 23 shooting from the field. Bost added 20 points, 13 assists and six rebounds. Mississippi State never led until Brian Bryant’s steal and layup on gave the Bulldogs a 63-62 advan-

tage with 8:05 remaining. Bost said “nobody wanted to play” early because of the disappointment of being left out of the NCAA tournament, but the players slowly came around during the second half and overtimes. Jalen Steele scored 17 points off the bench and Brian Bryant added 12. “Those guys on the floor were competing,” Stansbury said. “That’s all I ask.”

CENTER: Keita or Christmas could get Melo’s start Continued from 8A

Melo, the Big East Defensive Player of Year, on Thursday when Syracuse (31-2) opens the tournament against No. 16 seed North Carolina-Asheville. Melo’s presence on the back line of the Orange’s 2-3 zone might not be a factor in that game but it could be if Syracuse advances to play to face the winner of the Kansas State-Southern Mississippi game or possible future opponents in the East Regional such as Ohio State, with sophomore center Jared Sullinger, Florida State or Wisconsin. Sophomore Baye Keita or freshman Rakeem Christmas should get the start. The Orange are one of the deepest teams in the tournament with seven players, including Melo, averaging between 13.8 and 6.6 points per game. Melo averaged 7.8 points and 5.8 rebounds and had 88 blocks this season for Syracuse, which was ranked No. 1 for six weeks this season and finished No. 2 behind Kentucky in the final poll. The Orange opened the season with 20 straight wins before losing 67-58 at Notre Dame without Melo. Syracuse then won

11 in a row before losing 71-68 to Cincinnati last Friday in the Big East tournament semifinals. The news is the latest development in a tumultuous season for Syracuse. Last week, school officials said the university had more than a year ago self-reported possible violations of its internal drug policy by former members of the team and that the NCAA was investigating. None of the current members of the team was involved. In a report, Yahoo Sports said a three-month investigation it conducted showed that the Syracuse men’s basketball program failed to adhere to the

drug policy while playing ineligible players over the past decade. The report, which citied anonymous sources, said at least 10 players since 2001 had tested positive for a banned recreational substance or substances. The report did not identify who tested positive. Syracuse won its lone national championship in 2003. And the season began with the dismissal of associate head coach Bernie Fine after two former ballboys accused him of sexually molesting them in the 1980s. While charges have yet to be filed against Fine, he was fired in late November.

For fans, drivers, Bristol offers one-of-a-kind race experience

M

any a race fan, upon stepping into the giant stadium-like seating area at Bristol Motor Speedway for the first time, has marveled at seeing a NASCAR race track in the space typically occupied by a grassed football gridiron. On the other hand, drivers entering from the lower side of the grandstands see the place from a totally different perspective. “The first time you go there and you’re in the infield and you see how steep the banking is and how high the grandstands are up above you, you just feel like you’re in the middle of a volcano,” 2001 Sharpie 500 winner Tony Stewart told reporters during a recent appearance at Bristol, which hosts this weekend’s Food City 500. “It’s pretty intimidating.”

“Watching a race at Bristol is like putting 43 cars in a blender.” – Tony Stewart Despite the differences in perspectives, drivers and fans tend to agree that Bristol’s high-banked half-mile oval track, with its 165,000-seat grandstand, is a unique and special place. “Watching a race at Bristol is like putting 43 cars in a blender; it’s just nonstop action,” Stewart said. “There’s no track on the circuit that fans are as close to action as they are at Bristol. “They are literally sitting right at the edge of the track, and there’s not a bad seat in the house. Every seat is a great seat. And it’s a fun place, whether you’re

in the track watching the action or over at the campgrounds, everybody just has so much fun.” But for the drivers, it’s also a serious racing place, as 2008 Food City 500 winner Jeff Burton pointed out. “Bristol, in my eyes, is one of the three or four race tracks on the circuit where you don’t have a fluke winner,” he said. “Guys who don’t run well anywhere else can win at Daytona, [but] an average race car driver just doesn’t win at Bristol. “Everybody has to be on it at Bristol, and the winners there are typically hard racers. And if you can win there, you feel like you can win anywhere. I look at Bristol as the ultimate test of where you are as a driver.” It also can be the ultimate test of a race car, since many of them wind up battered and bruised after 500 laps. Tony Stewart, who is a part owner of his own and Ryan Newman’s Chevrolet, doesn’t seem to mind the repair bills – if he can prevail at the finish. “I don’t care if my car is upside down, on fire, or in a hundred pieces as long as we’re the first to cross the finish line there,” he said.

‘Double dippers’winning less

Stewart hits jackpot in Vegas race Tony Stewart motored away from the pack through one late-race restart after another in the Kobalt Tools 400 to score his 45th Sprint Cup victory, his sixth in the last 13 Cup races dating back to last year, and his first win at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Perhaps more important for the big picture, it was his first win with crew chief Steve Addington, who was put in the difficult position of taking over for a crew chief, Darian Grubb, who had led Stewart to five Chase victories and the Cup championship last year after being told he would be fired at season’s end. “It’s a big relief, to know you’re the [only] difference in the race team right now,” Addington said. “Nobody put the Tony Stewart on pit road at Las Vegas pressure on me Motor Speedway. (NASCAR photo) except myself. I really didn’t realize how much I’d put on myself going to work for the championship team the very next year. “It’s been a lot of pressure. I think that even when Tony feels good about the car, I’m still questioning. He’s just like, ‘Relax, dude, it’s going to be all right.’” Stewart said that he’s done all he can to keep from putting heat on Addington. “From day one we told Steve that we had an awesome scenario at the end of the year, winning the championship,” he said. “I guess it’s easy for us to not feel that pressure from our side …We told him from day one we’re going to go have fun, race hard, take what it gives us.” Stewart said that the Vegas win, coupled with Grubb’s win last week with his new driver, Denny Hamlin, should go a long way toward putting that story to bed. “I think it was a pretty cool two weeks,” he said.

Gordon rolls with it: ‘The actual wreck was fun’ Ever wonder what goes through a race driver’s mind when his or her world gets turned upside down – literally? Jeff Gordon provided some insight while discussing his flip during the Budweiser Shootout at Daytona last month. “You hold on tight, and you just hope that it ends soon,” he said. “You basically just brace yourself for any impact that may be coming.” He said the difficult part is not being able to tell what’s coming next. “You can’t see,” he said. “You’re spinning around, and you’re seeing the sky and the track and the sky and the track, and it’s all happening pretty fast. You’d be surprised at how fast it goes by.” Even though things happen fast, Gordon said drivers do have time to get nervous, like at Daytona, where he was sliding along on his left door with sparks flying everywhere. “I was more concerned with if those sparks turn into fire, and I need to get out, how am I going to go through the other window?” he said. “I knew some cars had gotten into me, and I thought the car might be stuck like that.” Then he said he began to worry that the car would land upside down, which it did. “When it landed upside down, everything was fine. I was like, ‘That didn’t hurt so bad, and I’m not injured,’” he said. Still, it took some time for rescue workers to decide whether to right his car first or get him out and then get the car back on its wheels. Gordon said he got impatient and tried to get out on his own. “I wish I had waited, because I tried to get out and that was the only time I was scared,” he said. “I was stuck inside the car when I tried to unhook. That was

NASCAR’s “Junior Nation” had plenty to cheer about in the opening laps of the Kobalt Tools 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Dale Earnhardt Jr. blasted into the lead on the start and led all but three of the first 73 laps. His 70 laps led in that race were 18 more than the 52 he led all of last year. But Earnhardt was unable to keep his car at the front of the pack as track conditions changed, and he wound up 10th at the finish and shouldering much of the blame for falling out of contention. He said he just didn’t do a good job of communicating the information on his car’s changing handling characteristics to crew chief Steve Letarte. “Our car was tight at the start of the race,” he said. “We were fast, and I knew before the end of the race we were going to have to free my car up, and I never let Steve [Letarte] do it. “I just never told him enough and never gave him enough freedom today that he felt like he needed to free the car up. When we got in traffic, the car was just really tight, and it’s a lesson that you learn a long, long time ago ... “It was more my fault than anything, really. I didn’t give him enough information.” Still, Earnhardt heads to one of his better tracks, Bristol Motor Speedway, fourth in the Cup standings, 18 points behind leader Greg Biffle.

Jeff Gordon signs autographs for fans last week. (NASCAR photo) the part that wasn’t much fun.” He said that overall, the most disappointing aspect for him was that he felt he caused the wreck. “I got impatient with Kyle Busch,” he said. “His car was terrible, and yet he wins the race. He was just so loose that every time I tried to push him by the car in front of us, he just kept getting out of control. “I pushed him too hard at a bad point in the corner, and then I had to try to avoid him as he started to wreck, and then I end up in the wreck and cause another wreck. That was the thing that got me mentally more so, and that was just making sure I don’t get myself in that same position. “The actual wreck itself was fun.”

After several years in which double-dipping Sprint Cup drivers won about all the Nationwide Series races, the trend seems to be reversing. Last year, five races were won by drivers who were essentially Nationwide only, and a sixth was won by Trevor Bayne, who runs a limited Cup schedule. This year, the first three Nationwide races have been won by Nationwide regulars, with James Buescher winning at Daytona, Elliott Sadler at Phoenix and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. at Las Vegas. For Stenhouse, the defending series champion, the Las Vegas victory was his first-ever on an intermediate track. “To win on a mile-and-a-half is big for me,” said the driver of the No. 6 Ford. “I feel like our cars are better than I am at some mile-and-ahalves, and I feel like I drive really hard at the short tracks. I think we’ve got a really good package going right now and to get that win on a mile-and-a-half feels good.” Veteran Mark Martin, who finished second, was among those impressed with Stenhouse’s performance. “That was one serious beat down Ricky Stenhouse just put on me there at the end,” he said.

Earnhardt adds to ‘boneyard’ It seems the old saying “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure” is true, at least for Dale Earnhardt Jr., who is now the proud owner of the No. 42 Chevrolet that Juan Pablo Montoya drove into the back of a jet dryer during the Daytona 500. Earnhardt recently added what’s left of Montoya’s car to his personal race car boneyard on part of his North Carolina property. “I’ve got about 50 or 60 cars out there, and I didn’t buy any of them,” he told reporters at Las Vegas, adding that a friend in the business has helped him amass his collection. He said the Montoya car ranks high in his collection, right up there with a car Dennis Setzer flipped at Talladega. “It’s one of the top two or three,” he said. Earnhardt also said he’d like to have the remains of the jet dryer.

Santorum sweeps Mississippi, Alabama primaries BY DAVID ESPO Associated Press

WASHINGTON — A resurgent Rick Santorum swept primaries in Alabama and Mississippi Tuesday night, upending the race for the Republican presidential nomination as he sought to push Newt Gingrich toward the sidelines. Mitt Romney was running third in both states. “We did it again,” Santorum told cheering supporters in Lafayette, La. He said it was time for conservatives to unite in an effort to defeat Romney, the former Massachusetts governor who is the faraway leader in the competition for Republican National Convention delegates. Romney bristled in the hours before the votes were counted, saying Santorum was “at the desperate end of his campaign.” But it was Gingrich with the most to lose as he struggled for political survival in a part of the country he hoped would fuel one more comeback in the unpredictable race to pick an opponent to President Barack Obama. He congratulated Santorum on his victories, and poked at Romney. “If you're the front-runner

Associated Press

Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum speaks during his election night party, Tuesday in Lafayette, La. He finished first in Mississippi and Alabama. and you keep coming in third, you're not much of a front-runner,” he said in Birmingham, Ala. There were 107 Republican National Convention delegates at stake on Tuesday, 47 in Alabama, 37 in Mississippi,

17 in Hawaii caucuses and six more in caucuses in American Samoa. Santorum's two victories were worth at least 21 delegates. Gingrich won at least 17 and Romney at least 16. The split in Mississippi underscored the

difficulty that Romney's rivals face in overcoming his big lead. Each of the three leading contenders won 10 delegates there with seven still to be allocated. The day began with Romney leading the delegate competition in The

Associated Press count, with 454 of the 1,144 needed to win the nomination. Santorum had 217, Gingrich 107 and Paul 47. That gave the former Massachusetts governor more than his rivals combined. And while Santo-

rum in particular challenges the mathematical projections, Romney still is amassing delegates at a rate that puts him on track to clinch control of nomination before the convention next summer. In Alabama Tuesday night, with 80 percent of the precincts counted, Santorum was pulling 35 percent of the vote, Gingrich had 29 percent and Romney 28 percent. Returns from 93 percent of Mississippi's precincts showed Santorum with 33 percent, Gingrich 31 percent and Romney 30. Rep. Ron Paul, the fourth contender, made little effort in the states on the day's ballot. Evangelicals played an outsized role in both primary states, underscoring the challenge to Romney. In Mississippi and Alabama, 80 percent or more of voters leaving their polling places said they were born again Christians or evangelical. Those voters have been reluctant to rally to Romney's side in the primaries and caucuses to date. Among them, Santorum bested Romney by 9 points in Alabama and 4 points in Mississippi.

Wicker, 4 congressmen clear Mississippi primary hurdles BY JEFF AMY Associated Press

JACKSON — Tea party candidates were unable to dent the popularity of Mississippi’s congressional Republicans in voting Tuesday, and former Greenville Mayor Heather McTeer fared no better in her Democratic primary race against longtime U.S. Rep. Bennie Thompson. U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker, a Tupelo Republican, and Mississippi’s four U.S. House members breezed

to victory in their Tuesday party primaries, setting up November races in which each will be heavily favored. The closest race involving an incumbent was in north Mississippi’s 1st district. First-term U.S. Rep. Alan Nunnelee of Tupelo won a comfortable majority over Henry Ross of Eupora and Robert Estes of Southaven in north Mississippi’s 1st District. Ross and Estes, though, were holding Nunnelee under 60 percent, while the other

races involving incumbents were walkovers. Wicker was so secure that he barely campaigned. On Friday, when speaking at a Rotarian convention in Jackson, he only indirectly alluded to the fact he was on the ballot. He defeated E. Allen Hathcock of Stewart and Robert Maloney of Madison, barely having to tap his $2.1 million war chest. Wicker will face Albert N. Gore Jr. of Starkville, who won the Democratic

primary against Will Oatis of Silver Creek and Roger Weiner of Clarksdale. Thomas Cramer of the Constitution Party and Shawn O’Hara of the Reform Party also are on November’s Senate general election ballot. Ross and Estes criticized Nunnelee, saying he hadn’t done enough to cut federal spending. The 53-year-old Nunnelee said he wanted to do more, but disagreed with claims that he had

betrayed his promises or hadn’t been conservative enough. In November, the Republican nominee will face Democrat Brad Morris of Oxford, Libertarian Danny Bedwell of Columbus, Reform Party member Chris Potts and Constitution Party member Jim Bourland. Nunnelee and the other Republicans, already were looking forward to November and focusing on President Barack Obama and overturning

the federal health care law. “Do we want to continue the failed policies of two years ago?” Nunnelee asked. “Or do we want someone who will go back to Washington and fight to cut spending and repeal Obamacare?” The Republican congressional primaries in the 4th and 3rd districts were fought along similar lines, although challengers there were less competitive.

CHILI: Cook-off to benefit charities CONTINUED FROM 1A

International Chili Society competition, which promises to draw many chili-cooking teams from around the region. The ICS is a non-profit organization that sanctions chili cookoffs around the world for the benefit of charities and other non-profit organizations. The ICS sanctioned competition will feature three categories — Red (traditional red chili), Chili Verde (green chili) and Salsa. Registration for the Crossroads Chili Cook-Off will continue until 9 a.m. on the day of the event. Participants are encouraged to register early to reserve a space. A call has also been issued for volunteers to assist during the cook-off, especially judges.

“Volunteers are needed in many ways,” said Kenny Carson, cook-off volunteer coordinator. “It’s a really neat community event.” At least 10 judges are needed at 11 a.m. to judge Local Favorite, followed by Salsa judging at noon. Sanctioned events are judged in the afternoon, he said. Volunteers can sign-up to judge one category so they don’t have to spend all day at the event, noted Carson. (For more information or to sign-up as a volunteer, contact the Tourism Office at 662-287-8300. Chili cookers who want to register may also contact the Tourism Office or send an email to Steve Knight at sknight@xroadsfest.com. Interested chili cooks can also go to the Web site at www.xroadsfest.com.)

What would it be like to say goodbye to both cataracts and astigmatism at the same time? The common irregularity known as corneal astigmatism occurs when the surface of the eye has an uneven curvature. Cataracts and astigmatism cloud and blur vision. Traditional lens implants used in cataract surgery clear the vision, but cannot correct the astigmatism (eyeglasses or contacts are needed to reduce blurring and distortion). Thanks to a revolutionary new technology available through SHIPP EYE CLINIC, it is now possible to perform cataract surgery using a Toric artificial lens designed to correct this astigmatism. Imagine being able to finally enjoy quality distance vision without glasses or contact lenses!

Erin, a 2006 Kossuth High School graduate, recently competed in the National Western Stock Show in Denver, Colorado during the Professional Bull Riding evening performance. She earned her way to the finals both nights, taking 11th place in the Pro/Am Novice Penning division. “Shows like in Denver are what grow our sport,” said Rainey. On Thursday, March 22 at 6:30 p.m., the Raineys will be growing the penning/sorting sport at the Crossroads Arena with a demonstration and discussion.

“I just want people to come watch and see what the sport is all about,” said Rainey. “It’s something that hooks you.” Susie Rainey, who won a few saddles during her riding days on her horse Hot Rod, is glad her only child took up the sport. “You can’t put a price tag on the times our family has been together,” she said. “She and her daddy are the pros at this, I always want her to give her best and to be a good sport.” “Kids need something like this,” added David. “We want others to see it is a good family sport and that everyone involved are a good bunch of people to be around.” Erin, whose main horse is an 11 year-old sorrel AQHA gelding named Doc, has a passion to win every event, but she also takes great satisfaction when other competitors do well. “She loves working with younger kids,” said her mother. “I love it when someone I have helped wins,” added Erin. Erin gets another chance to help and at the same further the sport come Saturday.

Henry Ross, the former Eupora mayor and former circuit judge, trailed behind Nunnelee with 1,405 votes (44.36 percent). Southaven businessman Robert Estes received 219 votes in Alcorn County. Incumbent Senator Roger Wicker swept Alcorn County in the Republican Primary. Wicker received 2,709 votes — almost 88 percent of all votes cast in Alcorn County — to win over challengers E. Allen Hathcock (182 votes) and Robert Maloney (198 votes). Wicker issued a statement shortly after he was declared winner of the primary. “It is an honor to represent the people of Mississippi in the U.S. Senate, and I am thankful for the opportunity to be the

conservative, Republican choice for the general election in November,” said Wicker. “I will continue working to advance conservative principles such as spending restraint and less regulation to solve the problems we face.” The Democratic primary for the 1st congressional district resulted in a local victory for Albert N. Gore. Gore coasted to victory in Alcorn County with 200 votes (63.29 percent) over Will Oatis (23 votes) and Roger Weiner (91 votes). Caldwell said he believed Alcorn County’s Republican voters were motivated by the barrage of recent phone and television campaign ads. “Most people voted Republican. The senate race was the only Democratcontested race, and none of the Democratic candidates got involved much,” he said. “I think the people came out to vote for their person.”

All kale breaks loose with a good rub BY RUSS PARSONS McClatchy-Tribune News Service

K

ale is about as unlikely a food star as you can imagine. It’s tough and ¿brous. Bite a piece of raw kale and you’ll practically end up with splinters between your teeth. Nevertheless, kale has become a green of the moment because, given a little special care, it actually can be made not only edible but delicious. You can cook it, of course, the lower and slower the better. But surprisingly, one of the most popular ways to use kale these days is in salads. Though kale leaves have always been found on almost every salad bar, it wasn’t for reasons of edibility _ it was for decoration, because this was one green so tough it would last forever without wilting. But the solution is remarkably simple: Give it a massage. Yes, seriously. And I mean a real massage — a deep-tissue bonebreaker. Grab bunches of it in both hands and squeeze. Then rub them together. And repeat. It’s almost like kneading bread dough. It won’t take very long — just a couple of minutes — but you’ll be amazed at the difference. That tough cellulose structure breaks down — wilts, actually — and those leaves that once seemed so coarse and ¿brous turn silky. You can feel it happening. You can see it too — the leaves will darken and shrink to almost half their pre-massage volume. The Àavor changes as well. That pronounced bitterness mellows, revealing some of the same depths of sweet green Àavor you normally get only through long, slow cooking. In fact, the best way to know when you’ve massaged kale long enough is to take a bite. The color and texture changes can happen before the leaves are completely softened. But taste doesn’t lie. Even better, because the massaged greens have such a wonderful texture and just the right mix of sweet and bitter Àavor, you don’t need much of a salad dressing. Use a little good olive oil and a pinch of salt when you’re giving it a rubdown and all you need afterward is a hint of acidity — vinegar or lemon juice — to make a perfectly balanced salad. One mark of kale’s rock star status is the sheer number of varieties available. It wasn’t so long ago that you found just dark green curly kale. Then came the type variously called “Tuscan,” “lacinato” or “dinosaur.” Now you can even ¿nd kales beautifully colored in shades of lavender and purple. The good news is they all work equally well for salads. Provided, of course, you give them a good rubdown ¿rst.

Horoscopes BY HOLIDAY MATHIS Venus and Mars trade moves as though they were playing a cosmic game of chess. Actionoriented Mars ultimately wins this game, but Venus insists that winning is not the point. It’s the beauty of the game and the love of the players that matter most. The Sagittarius moon agrees, spurring us on toward future adventures. ARIES (March 21-April 19). You get the sense that your talent and skills are being used in the wrong way. Pull back to get perspective. Nothing good comes of forcing yourself into a situation to please those around you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The latest research suggests that improving your weaknesses, while noble in intent, may very well be a waste of time. Finding

out your strengths and focusing there will make you more effective. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You carry a question around with you now. Your mind will find a way to answer it. Believing this will help to relieve the degree of anxiety that goes along with not knowing. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll be excellent at motivating yourself. Time pressures can really work for you now. You’ll excel with the creative tension that happens when you’re close to a deadline. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Selfdiscipline isn’t fun. In fact, it can be quite uncomfortable, which is why many people don’t have as much of it as they want. But you’d rather suffer the discomfort of self-discipline than the pain of regret.

Today in history

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Steer clear of dented cars because they show their history of collision. Similarly, be wary of people who talk of old battles and of being victimized, hurt or wronged. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re a splendidly expressive conversationalist. So what if some of the things you say don’t come out quite right? What counts is that you are contributing. You’re a giver. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Determination and resolve will pay off, though it would be nice not to feel that life is an uphill battle. Everything you do shouldn’t require such a great deal of energy. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Ideas bounce around in your head, and you want so badly to be able to pursue each one to

its natural conclusion. But you can’t. You have to prioritize and let some of it go. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You may value someone’s opinion and still not agree with it. You’ll run into a case or two like this today. The important thing is to stay humble, appreciative and diplomatic. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You want to spend time playing with your loved ones and creating fun memories. Remember that working together builds a bond, too -- maybe one that’s even more powerful than leisure-time glue. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Sudden changes are around the corner. In order to get ready, build up your strength, flexibility and stamina. This calls for exercise, reading, meditation and extreme self-care.

Teen’s free place to live comes with a painful cost DEAR ABBY: I am 19 and having an affair with a married man twice my age, but I am an unwilling participant. You see, I grew up with “Jasmine,” and over the years her family has become mine. I was going through a rough time, and when her family offered me a place to stay, I accepted. They treat me like one of their own, buy me presents — even introduce me as a daughter. However, after my birthday party, Jasmine’s father came into my bedroom and took advantage of me. I was scared and didn’t say anything. Over the past few months, he has sneaked into my room several times to “talk” or rub my back. He always crosses the line, and I’m too afraid to tell

him to stop. I feel sick and guilty when I see JasAbigail m i n e Van Buren or her m o t h e r, Dear Abby and I’m hurt and ashamed when I see him. I feel betrayed and confused. I tell myself I do it “for a place to stay.” Is there forgiveness for me? Please help. — DISTRAUGHT IN THE NORTHWEST DEAR DISTRAUGHT: It appears you are “doing it for a place to stay,” and for your own well-being you need to make other living arrangements. You have been betrayed, and your feelings are valid.

You are not being treated like a daughter; you are being coerced by a man with no conscience. Of course there is forgiveness for you — but you have to forgive yourself. Leaving is the first step. DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend, “Ross,” and I have been together for five years and have a 2-yearold child. We talk a lot about marriage and we’re engaged — kind of. Ross asked me and I said yes four years ago, but no one knows we’re engaged. He bought me a ring and I have been wearing it. Nobody has questioned it. I want to say something about our plans, but Ross says he’s too nervous and is afraid my parents will be angry. I am 23 and unemployed. Ross is 24 and has had

buying a gift for someone and it arrives with a mailin rebate, what do you do? If you give the person the rebate, he or she will know how much you paid for the gift. If you remove the UPC code, it looks like you regifted. How should this be handled? — HAVEN’T A CLUE IN EAST HARTFORD, CONN. DEAR HAVEN’T A CLUE: Many people regift, and as long as the item is well-chosen for the recipient and is in mint condition, there’s nothing wrong with the practice. How much was paid for the item is beside the point. When a gift is given, the price tag is removed. Because the mailin rebate would be a tipoff, it should be removed, too. (Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.)

bad luck with a bunch of jobs. Our 2-year-old and I live with my parents. Ross is currently staying with his grandparents. I don’t want a big wedding and I’m afraid my parents will be mad if Ross and I start planning ours. How can we break the news to them? — TIMID IN STOCKTON, CALIF. DEAR TIMID: If your boyfriend is too nervous to tell anyone about the engagement, face it — you’re kind of not engaged. If I were you, I’d hold off making any announcements to your folks until you have the answers ready to some questions first, like where you and Ross plan to live after the wedding. With your parents? His grandparents? Who do you expect will be paying for the wedding you’re planning? “Everyone” may have ignored the significance of the ring you’re wearing because neither of you is ready for marriage.
