Area mostly unscathed by storms Fallen trees only damage suffered BY JEBB JOHNSTON jjohnston@dailycorinthian.com

Sunday night’s severe weather scare left Corinth and Alcorn County mostly unscathed apart from a few fallen trees.

Storm sirens wailed across Corinth for a tornado warning affecting the northeast part of the county around midnight, but there were no reports of any visual confirmation. Corinth Street Commissioner Jim Bynum said the only issue brought to his attention was a large downed tree across Phillips Creek off Proper Street and near the Nor-

folk Southern railroad track. “We’re going to have to get a track hoe in there [Tuesday] to get it out of that creek because it’s holding water back,” he said. The tree is 6 feet in diameter. A tree was also blown down at Crossroads Regional Park in the walking track area. Alcorn Emergency Management Director Ricky Gibens said county

deputies monitored a downed tree on County Road 432 until road crews cleared the debris. A tree was also reported down on road 560. A squall line moving through in the early a.m. hours brought severe thunderstorm wind speeds. Gibens said some wall clouds could be seen passing over the area.

“We’ve been very blessed over the past few years that we haven’t had significant damage with the storms,” he said. The same storm system is blamed for two deaths in central Alabama on Monday. The storm that caused wind damage in Corinth early Saturday did not cause any reported damage in the county.

Historic building dealt blow Wind causes large portion to collapse BY JEBB JOHNSTON jjohnston@dailycorinthian.com

Trey Albright, co-owner of the property, surveys the rubble outside the old Corinth Machinery building on South Tate Street. The building suffered major damage due to wind during the weekend.

Dealt a major blow by a weekend storm, the old Corinth Machinery building likely faces a grim future. On Monday morning, co-owner Trey Albright was attempting to get in touch with officials at the Mississippi Department of Archives & History for guidance on what’s next for the historic building. New fencing was put up Monday to keep curious members of the public from getting too close to a building that is in danger of collapse. “There is a point where preservation ends and safety begins,” said Albright. A considerable portion of the building on South Tate Street collapsed during the early a.m. hours Saturday as a storm moved through Corinth. The destrucPlease see DAMAGE | 2

Tourism forms Bowler continues to roll along antique show BY STEVE BEAVERS

sbeavers@dailycorinthian.com

BY BOBBY J. SMITH bjsmith@dailycorinthian.com

Event organizers are accepting vendor applications for the Antiques Crossroads Show — an all-new event from the creators of the award-winning and popular Green Market. The name for the Antiques Crossroads Show is a localized nod to the long-running PBS series “Antiques Roadshow,” explained Corinth Area Convention & Visitors Bureau Program Director Karen Beth Martin. “We had so much success with Green Market and Red Green Market, and we saw how much people really love antiques,” said Martin. “These days events with antiques are very popular — so why not do an antique market?” The Antiques Crossroads Show will be held from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 21, at the Green Market location by the Crossroads Museum. Martin, a long-time antiques enthusiast, said the new event was inspired by the many phone calls she received from people wanting to sell antiques at the Green Market. “We’re putting something out there that we’ve had a great deal of demand for, and we want to have a really high quality antique market,” she said. “We want items to be of a high quality, but that doesn’t mean is has

to be all designer stuff — we just don’t want a bunch of broken bits and pieces of stuff out there.” The show is open to individuals as well as antiques dealers. Unlike Green Market there are no geographical limitations for vendors: Anyone from anywhere can participate, Martin said. All items for sale at the Antiques Crossroads Show must be at least 20 years old. No reproductions or repurposed items are allowed. Item eligibility will be judged by members of the organizing committee. Collectible items — such as Strawberry Shortcake, Troll Dolls, Precious Moments, Coca-Cola, etc. — must make up no more than 25 percent of a vendor’s booth. This is also at the discretion of the organizing committee and will be monitored throughout the day of the event. Items must be of such a standard and in such condition that they are in keeping with the best interest of a high-quality antiques show. Vendors must submit representative photos of items they intend to sale along with their applications. If the vendor has participated in a show before, the organizing committee requests a photo of the vendor’s prior set-up. The non-refundable ven-

Marcella Pearson needed something to do after her husband passed away. The 91-year-old decided to give bowling a try. Thirty-five years later, Pearson is still bowling. The Milwaukee, Wis., native takes part in the Thursday Morning Coffee League every week at Plaza Lanes, making her the oldest league bowler. “During a time when most people are only concerned about themselves, she is committed to being here every Thursday and that encourages others,” said Plaza Lanes owner David Curry. The left hander is part of the Gutter Girls in the league. She and teammates Carolyn Bailey, Pat Stoop and Estelle Ragan were a portion of a room full of bowlers on Thursday. “When my husband (Carl Pearson) died, I figured I would start bowling,” said Pearson before heading off to take her turn bowling. “It’s good exercise for all parts of your body.” The mother came to Corinth three years to live with her only child Judith Nelson. “I have pins and awards from when I bowled in Milwaukee,” said the retired worker from Allis-Chalmers. “I used to go to nationals every year.” “She doesn’t worry about winning, she is out here to get her exercise,” said teammate Bailey. “What she is doing is great and she enjoys doing it ... I hope when I am 91 I can do the same things.” Pearson was the hit of the bowling alley on Thursday with everyone so pleased she was

Stolen guns recovered in McNairy County BY JEFF YORK For the Daily Corinthian

SELMER, Tenn. — A cooperative effort between the McNairy County Sheriff’s Department, Hardin County Fire Department and the ISR Group led to the recovery of four stolen guns from two ponds on Saturday. McNairy County Sheriff Guy Buck was very pleased with the cooperation between the groups on Saturday to recover the guns that belonged to Phillip McMahan, of

Talley Road in Hornsby, Tenn. The ponds were in the Mt. Vinson Community, near Stantonville. “We had information that some guns had been thrown in these two ponds,” said Buck. “Our department got a lot of help from the Hardin County Dive Team and the ISR Group to recover the guns.” The guns had been stolen in a burglary in December and Terry Carter was charged with the theft. He is now in the

“We had information that some guns had been thrown in these two ponds. Our department got a lot of help from the Hardin County Dive Team and the ISR Group to recover the guns.” Guy Buck McNairy County sheriff McNairy County Jail. Carter, 39, of 1670 Airport Road in Selmer, was arrested on Dec. 22 by the McNairy County Sher-

iff’s Department. He was charged with aggravated burglary, aggravated criminal trespassing, vandalism and violation of

parole. The ISR Group has an unmanned maritime system (UMS) with sonar that went into the ponds and located the guns. A member of the Hardin County Dive Team would then go into the frigid water to retrieve the guns that were stuck barrel first into the muddy bottom of the ponds. Buck said it was amazing to see the submarinetype vehicles operate and provide video from the bottom of the ponds. The

ISR Group is based in Savannah that specializes in unmanned vehicle systems. The sheriff said the guns were salvageable after getting the mud blown out of the gun barrels. Sheriff Buck said one of the guns was a Browning shotgun that had a lot of sentimental value to the owner. Sheriff Buck said the recovery of the guns would help the district attorney in the prosecution of the case.

Things to do today ‘Outstanding Citizen’ The Junior Auxiliary of Corinth Inc. is now accepting nominations for the Outstanding Citizen of 2012. Applications may be obtained at the Corinth Library, The Alliance or the Daily Corinthian office. Mail all nominations and supporting data to Annie Richardson, 2105 Maple Road, Corinth, MS 38834.

Property co-owner Trey Albright is concerned about safety as the Corinth Machinery building appears to be in danger of further collapse.

DAMAGE: Any work on building requires state approval CONTINUED FROM 1

tion attracted the public’s attention, with people stopping to take pictures Sunday as Albright stood watch, making sure no one got too close. The mortar has largely gone to sand, making the bricks easy to dislodge. And with Saturday’s collapse, Albright points to just a single beam that he believes is holding the front wall in place. On the other side of the building, he believes the large metal spiral staircase and its concrete support is one of the things that has kept that area from collapsing. There is concern that another collapse could cover the adjacent railroad track and threaten neighboring buildings. Saturday’s collapse sent a brick flying through the upper portion of the neighboring woolen mills

building that Albright uses as a warehouse for his export business. To see the building reach this condition is frustrating for Albright, who purchased it with business partner Justin Shelton of Columbus with the hope of renovating it in some way. “I just got tired of seeing it sit here and I thought I’d try to do something with it,” said Albright. “I reinvested back in Corinth for something nobody else was willing to do, and mother nature took its course.” Shelton was acquainted with the building’s prior owner, whose renovation plans never materialized, and convinced him to sell the property. Completed in 1869, the structure has been regarded as the state’s oldest existing industrial building and a symbol of the Reconstruction period. It was home to the successful Corinth Machinery Company from 1912 to 1973. “My accountant built the stairway in the back

before he was an accountant,” said Albright. “So many people have had a history with this building.” The piles of toppled brick now surrounding the building show the construction techniques of another time. Albright said many have fingerprints because they were made in forms on the ground and workers would rake off the tops with their fingers. The latest study of the building recommended an $8.5 million budget to attempt to preserve the building by constructing an exoskeleton and a metal roof. Albright said a budget of that magnitude “leaves me out of the loop.” He said attempts with MDAH and others to find investors have been unsuccessful. Because of its historic status, any work on the building requires approval by the Mississippi Department of Archives & History. Albright said he will also be consulting with the city.

Corinth, Miss.

Letter to the Editor County resident takes offense with comments To the editor: I would like to make a few comments about statements made by Corinth city alderman Chip Wood concerning the residents of Alcorn County. Wood stated the people of Alcorn County took pride in not having a building code and they could put big orange buses in their front yards. I cannot believe someone who is a representative for citizens of Corinth would make such degrading remarks about people in the county. The leaders of Corinth are always stressing we should Shop Corinth First. “Shop in Corinth - Keep Your Money Here” is a phrase seen and heard throughout Alcorn County. It seems the people of Alcorn County are good enough for Corinth to want their money, but they are nothing but a bunch of ignorant folks when it comes to voting on important issues such as legalizing the sale of liquor in Corinth. Yes, I do believe it would be wrong to legalize the sale of liquor in Corinth. Alcohol has destroyed many individuals, homes, and killed scores of innocent people. Placing labels on me and others who live in Alcorn County because of what we believe has no place in the discussion about who can or cannot vote on something that will affect everyone. Do our elected officials really believe their constituents should be degraded in such a manner? Shirley Rhodes City of Farmington, Alcorn County

Senate President Pro Tempore Terry Brown, both Republicans, were quick to say the Senate wasn’t being anti-religious. Rather, they said there was simply no need for the resolution. Legislators and staffers already have voluntary prayer groups that meet regularly. And, legislators don’t need their colleagues’ permission to form any kind of caucus. Reeves said he and House Speaker Philip Gunn, RClinton, would issue a proclamation expressing support for a Capitol prayer group. Brown said there was no consensus in the Senate about establishing a prayer caucus. Some senators privately expressed concerns that a prayer caucus could be turned toward partisan purposes. Resolutions are seen as more binding than proclamations, so leaders found a way to say they like prayer without making anyone vote on a resolution that made them uncomfortable. The Senate chaplain in 2011 was the Rev. Ben James, pastor of Prentiss Baptist Church. He was chosen for the job by Repub-

lican Phil Bryant, who was lieutenant governor at the time and is now governor. Republican Billy Hewes of Gulfport, president pro tem last term, told his colleagues in January 2011 that the Senate needed a chaplain because: “Our Christianity is under attack and I think this is a way for us to make a statement that faith in our lives is very important.” At the time, Hewes was embarking on a campaign for lieutenant governor. Months later, when Hewes and Reeves were in a heated race for the Republican nomination, James used Senate chaplain letterhead as he publicly endorsed Reeves — an endorsement Reeves’ camp said he did not seek. Fillingane, who is friends with James, said this past week he saw no problem with the endorsement, even on Senate letterhead. “I don’t think you check your citizenship rights at the door when you do the Lord’s work,” Fillingane said. Legislators in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Tennessee and other states also open daily sessions with prayer.

and every other city of size in the country. Compare the conduct of that war to the Iraq conflict. Was anything asked of the American people in the Iraq War? Anything at all? Certainly not taxes. They were cut so that “job creators” could create jobs, which they did — mainly in China. Nor participation. We’ve got an all-volunteer armed force coupled with a large number of contracted mercenaries. You didn’t join up unless you wanted to (or couldn’t get a better job). I remember President George W. Bush being asked at the beginning of the conflict what the American people could do to contribute to the war effort. “Go shopping,” he said. That was the great sacrifice we were asked to make. The young men and women we sent to fight that eight-year war bore virtually the entire burden of it — nearly 4,500 U.S. military deaths, along with about 1,500 military contractors, and God knows how many thousands of Iraqis, both friend and foe.

maimed or psychologically damaged, their futures truncated. (The unemployment rate for returning veterans 20-24 years old is 30 percent.) The war cost well over $800 billion and counting, mocking Bush adviser Paul Wolfowitz’s prediction that it would pay for itself. It was a lousy war from the beginning, sold to the American people on false pretenses, and it has done us precious little good. We were hardly out of the door when the sectarian rivalries that existed before we got there began to shred the country again. So much for creating a model democracy, which was one of the stated goals of the invasion. The chief result of the war was the strengthened position of Iran, our sworn enemy in the region. Some wars end with a bang, others with a whimper. The end of the Iraq War was accompanied by the sound of one hand clapping. OtherWords columnist Donald Kaul lives in Ann Arbor, Mich.

Local Judge delays decision on pardoned inmates BY HOLBROOK MOHR AND EMILY WAGSTER PETTUS Associated Press

JACKSON — A Mississippi judge on Monday delayed a decision on whether to invalidate some pardons, including of convicted killers, issued by Haley Barbour in his final days as governor. Hinds County Circuit Judge Tomie Green issued the bench ruling after the state attorney general’s office said it needed more time to prepare. The office of Attorney General Jim Hood said it had been deluged with motions and documents from lawyers representing current and former inmates. Green scheduled the next hearing for 1 p.m. on Feb. 3. She extended until then an earlier order that temporarily blocked the release of five inmates who’d been given pardons by Barbour.

The judge had ordered five former inmates who worked as trusties at the Governor’s Mansion and were pardoned by Barbour, including four convicted killers, to be in court. Four showed up. Joseph Ozment, convicted in 1994 of killing a man during a robbery, did not appear in court Monday. Officials with the attorney general’s office said investigators were unable to find him to serve notice that he had been ordered to appear. Green told the four former inmate trusties that they need to continue to check in daily with the Mississippi Department of Corrections. “Your liberty is at risk,” Green told them. “This court has allowed you to remain out as a result of the injunction.” The four former trusties were taken out a back door of the courtroom,

keeping them separate from victims’ families who attended the hearing. The four were David Gatlin, convicted of killing his estranged wife in 1993 as she held their baby; Anthony McCray, convicted in 2001 of killing his wife; Charles Hooker, sentenced to life in 1992 for murder; and Nathan Kern, sentenced to life in 1982 for burglary after at least two prior convictions. Green ordered that five other people who received full pardons remain in custody. The five were pardoned by Barbour on Jan. 10, but they were not immediately released because MDOC said it generally takes a few days to process paperwork to release an inmate. The five have been held under the temporary injunction that Green issued Jan. 11 at Hood’s request.

The five pardoned inmates who are still being held are: ■ Aaron Brown, who was convicted of murder, concealed weapon and possession of a controlled substance. ■ Joshua Howard, who was convicted of statutory rape. ■ Azikiwe Kambule, who was convicted of armed carjacking and accessory after the fact to murder. ■ Katherine Robertson, who was convicted of aggravated assault. ■ Kirby Glenn Tate, who was convicted on drug charges, including possession of oxycodone and delivery of marijuana. Amid an uproar over the trusties’ pardons, Hood challenged some of Barbour’s pardons on the grounds that they failed to meet the state constitutional requirement of publishing a legal no-

tice for 30 days in a local newspaper. Hood wants the pardons to be invalidated and the former trusties returned to prison. But the vast majority of the people who could lose their pardons had already served their sentences and had been out of prison for years, in some cases for decades, before Barbour’s actions. Barbour pardoned 198 people in his final days as governor before leaving office Jan. 10. He granted some sort of reprieve to 26 inmates who were in custody — 10 full pardons; 13 medical releases; one suspension of sentence; one conditional, indefinite suspension of sentence; and one conditional clemency. Those being released for medical reasons or who received suspended sentences or conditional clemency did not need to publish no-

Alderman wants nuisance property crackdown Associated Press

BROOKHAVEN — Brookhaven alderman David Phillips has proposed the city adopt an ordinance targeting nuisance properties. The Daily Leader reports that Phillips told

other aldermen this past week that police received 80 complaints in 2011 concerning a trailer park in the area he represents. Police Chief Pap Henderson said officers have visited the trailer park

several times this year. He says complaints have originated from residents of the trailer park and neighbors around the park. He said complaints from the property include robbery, armed robbery, threats

and harassment. Phillips said the police can deal with the people involved in individual incidents, but no ordinances or codes currently on the books provide the city with leverage over the property

owner. “This is a tool we need,” Phillips said. The proposed ordinance would define a “chronic nuisance property” as one “on which three or more nuisance activities occur or exist during any 60 day period.”

tices in newspapers. Barbour, a Republican who served two terms, has accused Hood of partisan politics. Hood is the only Democrat in statewide office. An attorney for four of the former inmate trusties claimed in court papers that Hood’s office should be disqualified from the case because an assistant attorney general helped with the notification process that Hood is now challenging. Hood issued a statement denying those claims, but his office has refused to answer questions from The Associated Press about whether or not it provided legal advice to Barbour’s office about the notification process. “Our detailed response will be in our court filings,” Hood’s spokeswoman, Jan Schaefer, said Monday.

Stem cells may aid vision in blind people Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Scientists are reporting hints that embryonic stem cells can ease blindness in some people. It’s the first results from the use of embryonic stem cells in humans. The research published

online Monday in the journal Lancet involved two legally blind patients. They received an injection of cells derived from embryonic stem cells in one eye. One had the “dry” form of age-related macular degeneration and the other had a rare disease that

causes serious vision loss. After four months, both did better on a standardized eye test. The work was done by scientists at the University of California, Los Angeles and Advanced Cell Technology in Massachusetts.

Two left dead as storms pound South BY JAY REEVES Associated Press

CLAY, Ala. — Violent weather including possible tornadoes roared across the heart of Alabama on Monday, injuring more than 100 people and killing at least two, including a man who lived in an area devastated by a deadly twister outbreak in the spring. The storms flattened homes and peeled off roofs in the middle of the night in the rural community of Oak Grove near Birmingham. As dawn broke, residents surveyed the damage and began cleaning up across parts of central Alabama, an area that has a history of tornadoes going back decades. In a sign Alabama has become all too familiar with severe weather, officials had to reschedule a meeting Monday to receive a report on their response to the spring twisters. Alabama’s governor declared a state of emergency for the entire state.

Oak Grove was hit hard in April when tornadoes killed about 240 people statewide, though officials said none of the same neighborhoods was struck again. Amber Butler and her family hid in her sister’s brick home as the storm approached about 3:30 a.m. Butler’s own home was destroyed. “I just so speechless now, I don’t know what to do,” she said. “God Bless our friends and neighbors who have come to help. We’ve lost everything we had.” Butler lived near 83-year-old Bobby Frank Sims, who was killed when his home was leveled by a tree. In Clay, northeast of Birmingham, 16-year-old Christina Nicole Heichelbech died, the Jefferson County coroner’s office said. Rescue workers said her parents were injured. “Some roads are impassable, there are a number of county roads where you

Gingrich lands in firing line BY BRIAN BAKST Associated Press

TAMPA, Fla. — Fresh off his big South Carolina win, Republican Newt Gingrich found himself on the defensive Monday as the volatile GOP presidential contest shifted to Florida. Chief rival Mitt Romney sharpened his attacks on the former House speaker, calling him “erratic” and pressing for disclosure of clients, contracts, records and other work he was paid to do after leaving Congress. Atop Romney’s list are Gingrich’s consulting arrangements with mort-

gage giant Freddie Mac and details of ethics investigations in the 1990s. Romney also charged that Gingrich had engaged in “potentially wrongful activity” when he worked with former colleagues in Congress to create a prescription drug benefit for Medicare. “We could see an October surprise a day from Newt Gingrich,” Romney said after a round-table session with people struggling with home foreclosure problems. Gingrich, who earlier had appeared on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” mocked Romney as

THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE THE Bible has in it 3,566,480 letters, 810,677 w o r d s , 3 1 ,1 7 5 verses, 1189 chapters and 66 books. The longest chapter is the 119th Psalm. The shortest and middle chapter is the 117th Psalm. The middle verse is the 8th verse of the 118th Psalm. The longest name is in the 8th chapter of Isaiah, verse 1, and contains 18 letters. The word and occurs 46,627 times; the word Lord 1,855 times. The 37th chapter of Isaiah and the 19th chapter of II Kings are alike. The longest verse is Esther 8:9; t he shor t est v e r s e is J o h n 11 :3 5 . I n Ez r a 7:21 are all the letters of the alphabet except the letter j. The finest piece of reading is Acts 26th chapter. The name of God is not found in Ester. The Bible contains knowledge, wisdom, the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, the doom of the sinner and the happiness of believers. Its doctrines are holy; its precepts are binding; its histories are true, and its decisions are immutable. It contains light to guide you, food to support you and comfort to cheer you. God was 2,500 years getting ready to write the Bible; 1600 years writing it; and has been 1900 years fulfilling it. The word boy occurs in the Bible three times and the word girl two times. Christ is the key to the entire Book. Forty men were employed in its making. It was written by doctors, farmers, fishers, kings, shepherds, old, young, rich, poor, learned and unlearned. It is the traveler’s map, the pilgrim’s staff, the pilot’s compass and the soldier’s sword. Do not neglect your Bible. It is a mine of wealth and health to the soul and a river of pleasure. It is given to you in this life and will be opened to you at the judgement and it is established forever. If you want a crown of rejoicing when Jesus returns to Earth again, read your Bible and lead lost souls to Christ and you will have a rich reward when He comes. II Timothy 2:15 is the key that will unlock the sacred Book to you. Read, hear, keep what it contains and you will always be happy and proserous. Revelation 1:3.

have either debris down, trees down, damage from homes,” said Yasamie Richardson, a spokeswoman for the Alabama Emergency Management Agency. The storm system stretched from the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico, producing hail, strong winds and rain. Possible tornadoes were reported in Arkansas on Sunday night. In Alabama, searchers went door-to-door calling out to residents, many of whom were trapped by trees that crisscrossed their driveways. Stevie Sanders woke up around 3:30 a.m. and realized bad weather was on the way. She, her parents and sister hid in the laundry room of their brick home in Clay as the wind howled and trees started cracking outside. “You could feel the walls shaking and you could hear a loud crash. After that it got quiet, and the tree had fallen through my sister’s roof,” said Sanders.

“somebody who has released none of his business records, who has decided to make a stand on transparency without being transparent.” After initially balking, Romney is set to release personal tax records on Tuesday. The sniping between the two contenders opened a Florida fight that is shaping up as pivotal to determining which one of them will become the GOP’s presidential nominee. The four candidates — Gingrich, Romney, Rick Santorum and Ron Paul — were to meet Monday night in Tampa for the first of two debates heading into Florida’s primary on Jan. 31. Gingrich, who planned a pre-debate campaign appearance on Monday afternoon in Tampa, basked in his come-frombehind triumph in South Carolina two days earlier. The win made for three different winners in the first three states to hold contests, with Santorum winning Iowa and Romney taking New Hampshire. Gingrich’s campaign said it had raked in $1 million in the first 24 hours since South Carolina’s primary Saturday. Frequently the aggressor in the race, Gingrich is now the one taking fire from all sides. Santorum described Gingrich as too “high risk” to be the Republican standard-bearer. Romney has been calling Gingrich a lobbyist. Gingrich flatly denied lobbying on behalf of Freddie Mac or other clients. “It’s not true. He knows it’s not true. He’s deliberately saying things he knows are false,” Gingrich said. “I just think that’s what the next week will be like.”

Today

Yahoo’s fourth quarter Many investors believe that Yahoo will report Tuesday that revenue fell for a 13th straight quarter. So they’ll be more interested in hearing what new CEO Scott Thompson is planning to do to turn the Internet company around. Thompson started his job just two weeks ago, but investors are impatient for answers — when is Yahoo going to reclaim the Internet advertising space it has lost to Google and Facebook?

Sears: Buy? Sell? Three weeks ago, Sears was a stock to sell. Now it’s the best stock in the S&P 500 for 2012. Investors bailed after Sears said Dec. 29 that holiday sales were weak and it would close up to 120 Sears and Kmart stores. Financial analysts expect Sears to lose $542 million in the fiscal year that ends this month. The stock is up 64 percent since Jan. 5, when it hit a bottom of $28.89. It’s up 49 percent this year. Sears had fallen 65 percent from Oct. 27 to Jan. 5. It closed Monday at $47.39. Analysts say some of the buying is coming on bets that Chairman Edward Lampert will take Sears private. Other buyers are believed to be investors who sold Sears short — a bet that it would continue to fall. When Sears started rising, they had to buy it back. Some analysts expect the retailer to pull itself up in the long term. A look at what’s behind the stock’s moves: A BUYOUT CANDIDATE? Lampert has been buying Sears stock recently. He controls about 61 percent of Sears. But Morningstar's Paul Swinand says there are no clear signals or motivations for a buyout. If you want to bet Lampert will take Sears private, be aware that the stock could drop if the speculators are wrong. A REAL ESTATE BARON Sears stores are struggling, but they’re sitting on a lot of land. There are more than 2,300 big-box and mall-based Sears and Kmart stores in the U.S. and its territories and Canada. And more than 3,600 specialty stores and catalog locations. The real estate holdings alone would give Sears a value of $80 to $90 a share, Swinand says. When stores are closed, Sears can profit from selling land or leases. That could lift the stock.

Verizon Communication’s fourth-quarter earnings report will show how many subscribers the company lured away from competitors when it began selling the iPhone 4S. The phone was introduced in early October. Analysts estimate that Verizon added just over a million net subscribers who signed contracts for wireless service. But its ability to win more was likely limited by the fact that AT&T and Sprint also sell the iPhone.

LOSING ITS TOUCH Sears and Kmart stores have lost customers because they’re run-down. Not even brands like Craftsman and Kenmore have kept shoppers from turning to Lowes and Home Depot. Revenue at stores open at least a year, the standard measure of a retailer’s strength, fell 5 percent during the holidays from a year earlier. Sears is trying to change. It has hired the CEO of gadget retailer Brookstone as its chief merchandising officer.

The Warriors and Lady Warriors both went unscathed through the fourteam, double round-robin schedule after being bumped up a class following the annual two-year reclassification process.

■ The Warriors enter the postseason having lost just once since falling to Starkville on Nov. 12. CHS has compiled a 14-1-2 mark since, the lone setback via shoot-out at DeSoto Central on Jan. 14. Corinth has outscored its opponents 71-16 with goalkeeper Cullen Grantham recording seven shutouts.

Saturday’s 4-2 win over New Albany and the early setback to Starkville are the only times CHS has allowed multiple goals in regulation. Leading scorer John Mathis (60 points: 27 goals, 6 assists) returned to action on Saturday and helped Corinth rally from a 2-1 deficit over the final 23 minutes. The All-State performer had missed the previous four games after breaking his collarbone against Tishomingo County on Jan. 3. Josh Trest is second on the club with 36 points, including a team-high 16 assists. Albert Stanley (9 goals, 9 assists) came up big during Mathis’ absence, tallying 13 of his 27 points in the fourgame stretch. A win would pit Corinth against the Florence-Amory Please see CORINTH | 9

Public memorial set for Paterno at Penn State Associated Press

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Joe Paterno’s family said Monday the legendary football coach will get a two-day viewing and a public memorial this week on the Penn State campus, two months after the university summarily fired him over the phone. The family gave no details on who might be invited or asked to speak at the memorial Thursday at the basketball arena, which can hold 16,000 people. Penn State spokes-

woman Lisa Powers said the specifics were still being worked out with the Paternos. But many alumni and students say Paterno was treated shabbily by the Board of Trustees in November, and trustees and other members of the administration might not be made to feel welcome at the memorial for the 85-yearold coach, who died Sunday of lung cancer. “I don’t think it’s going to be heavily laden with administration and trustees,” said

trustee Linda Strumpf, who lives in New York and will not attend. “This is something the family is putting together and not the university. I don’t think the university wants to be in a position to tell them what a memorial service looks like.” But trustee Al Clemens said he will be there to honor a man he described as a good friend. “This is really a family thing, and so we’re just going to go as individuals,” Clemens said.

“Joe’s a great guy. No matter was the situation was in the last two months, it doesn’t take away from what he’s done through history for so many people. He’s just been tremendous.” The viewing will be held Tuesday and Wednesday at a campus spiritual center, followed by a private funeral Wednesday afternoon. The public memorial will be at the Jordan Center and is expected Please see PATERNO | 9

Not-so-special special teams can lose a game Associated Press

If it’s true, as the saying goes, that “defense wins championships,” the NFL’s conference title games offered ample evidence that special teams can lose them. “You’re going to need special teams. A kick will win a game more often than a run or pass will win the game, and a special teams tackle can make a big difference,” former Minnesota Vikings and Arizona Cardinals coach Dennis Green said in a telephone interview Monday.

“There’s nothing like it when it all works,” added Green, now an NFL Network analyst. “And there’s nothing worse when it doesn’t work.” The Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers found that out the hard way Sunday. First, the Ravens wasted an easy opportunity to force overtime in the AFC championship game when Billy Cundiff pushed a 32-yard field-goal attempt wide left, letting the New England Patriots escape with a 23-20

victory. Then, in a windy and rainy NFC championship game a few hours later, the 49ers handed the Giants the football and great field position in overtime when fill-in returner Kyle Williams fumbled a punt — his second turnover of the game on a return — and New York soon was celebrating its 20-17 victory on Lawrence Tynes’ 31-yard kick. “Those games were even. The teams were even. Baltimore was going to win with the run game and defense,

and that was the way San Francisco was going to win, too. When you have that as your way to win, you have to have special teams play a role, because it means a lowscoring game,” Green said. “Everyone always says you win with the three phases — offense, defense, special teams — but rarely do they mention special teams when it comes to what is the most significant thing.” After the Patriots and Giants set up their Super Bowl Please see NFL | 9

The Warriors beat Amory twice this season. â&#x20AC;˘ The Lady Warriors enter play having won two straight â&#x20AC;&#x201D; both over New Albany â&#x20AC;&#x201D;and four of their last five. CHS has been getting it done on defense, having tallied just 39 goals â&#x20AC;&#x201D; eight in one match â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in 20 contests. The Lady Warriors have posted eight shutouts, seven courtesy Madison Bickert. Meredith Wilbanksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first career goal on Saturday helped send the game into overtime. Seirra Maness, who paces the squad with 14 goals, scored in the first 10-minute period and the game went scoreless over the final session. Brianna Scobey, who owns the other blanking in goal, and Frances Bullard are second on the team with six goals. Olivia Suitor has a team-high eight assists to go along with three netters. The Lady Warriors would also match up with the Florence-Amory winner on Saturday. Amory claimed a pair of victories during the regular season.

PATERNO: Penn State community separate from Board of Trustees CONTINUED FROM 8

to draw thousands. Michael Day, a 1973 Penn State graduate from Hagerstown, Md., whose father taught there and whose four children all have Penn State degrees, said the trustees were wrong to fire Paterno and he believes they will ultimately be replaced. He said he hopes they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t attend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the Penn State community is separate from the Penn State Board of Trustees,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Board of Trustees has separated itself from the Penn State community, and the Penn State community loves Joe Paterno and always will. So itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appropriate for the Penn State community to honor Joe Paterno in this service.â&#x20AC;? Paterno was fired Nov. 9 after he was criticized over his handling of child sexabuse allegations leveled against former assistant Jerry Sandusky in 2002. Pennsylvaniaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s state police commissioner said that in not going to the police, Paterno may have met his legal duty but not his moral one. Bitterness over Paternoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s removal has turned up in many forms, from online postings to a note placed next to Paternoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s statue at the football stadium blaming the trustees for his death. A newspaper headline that read â&#x20AC;&#x153;FIREDâ&#x20AC;? was crossed out and made to read, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Killed by Trustees.â&#x20AC;? Lanny Davis, lawyer for the board, said threats have been made against the trustees. Janice Hume, a journalism professor at the University of Georgia, said that staging an appropriate memorial creates a dilemma similar to the one faced by Paternoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obituary writers: how to address the scandal without letting it negate his entire career. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably very difficult to strike the right balance,â&#x20AC;? she said. Clemens said the board will later consider more lasting tributes to Paterno, including scholarships in his name. Because of his generosity to the school, his family name is already on the library and a spiritual center. There has also been a movement over the past few years to change the name of Beaver Stadium, the football teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home field, to Joe Paterno Field at Beaver Stadium, and on Monday the man behind it, Warren W. Armstrong, a 1960 graduate and retired Allentown advertising executive, said he would renew his efforts. Some are suggesting renaming the street leading to the stadium Paterno Way. A family spokesman said the Paternosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; focus this week is on the viewing and funeral plans and they do want to weigh in on any ideas for a permanent memorial right now. But â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would say the family would welcome a conversation on that,â&#x20AC;? Dan McGinn said.

NFL: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You want to make a play for your team. We werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly moving forwardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; CONTINUED FROM 8

rematch, though, that was the main thing everyone wanted to talk about. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was a game of field position, a game of turnovers. We needed for special teams to help us, No. 1, with the field position aspect of it, but secondly, in contributing turnovers,â&#x20AC;? Giants coach Tom Coughlin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And certainly we got two big ones.â&#x20AC;? Indeed. Williamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first miscue, allowing the ball to bounce off the turf and scrape his right knee, gave New York the ball at San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 29 early in the fourth quarter and led to Eli Manningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 17yard touchdown pass to Mario Manningham, putting the Giants ahead 17-14. On Monday, Williams said he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think the ball touched him. The second error by Williams â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the son of Chicago White Sox general manager Kenny Williams and the subject of angry, and sometimes threatening, tweets after the game â&#x20AC;&#x201D; set up the Giants at the 49ersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 24. On that play, he was stripped by New Yorkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jacquian Williams, a backup

linebacker, while trying to shift the football from one hand to the other. The Giants player who recovered both botched punts, Devin Thomas, is also hardly a household name. Thomas was drafted in the second round of the 2008 draft by the Washington Redskins, but he was released in October 2010, after being dogged by questions about his work ethic and route-running ability. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My position as a fourth or fifth wide receiver and special teams player â&#x20AC;&#x201D; I take pride in that and do anything to help this team win,â&#x20AC;? Thomas said. Describing the overtime play, Thomas recounted: â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe he just fumbled.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Then Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;OK. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m right here.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; So I just made sure I secured it.â&#x20AC;? Special teams players sometimes are the last men on an NFL roster, young or fringe players who get their best chance to make an impact on the kicking units (although starting 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman made at least one particularly impressive tackle on punt coverage Sunday). Kyle Williams, actu-

ally, was handling returns against the Giants because he replaced the injured Ted Ginn Jr. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re out there, you want to make a play. You want to make a play for your team. We werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly moving forward. It was one of those things where we needed something to spark us. I feel comfortable. I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go back and change it; 10 times out of 10, I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t change it,â&#x20AC;? San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Williams said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was one of those things where I was just trying to make something happen â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and the other guy on the other team made something happen.â&#x20AC;? It must have been particularly galling for Ravens coach John Harbaugh to see his team flub a kick, given that part of his preparation for becoming an NFL coach was serving as a special teams assistant. He had a timeout left at the end Sunday, but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use it, and it appeared Baltimore might have been rushing just a bit before taking that missed kick. Harbaugh â&#x20AC;&#x201D; whose brother Jim coaches the 49ers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t available to reporters

Monday, but Cundiff was. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tough to disappoint your teammates,â&#x20AC;? the kicker said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tough to go out there and fail.â&#x20AC;? There were, to be sure, other reasons his team lost Sunday, including Lee Evansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; drop of a pass in the end zone moments earlier. Plus, even if Cundiff did make that seemingly automatic kick, there still was overtime to be played, and who knows what would have happened then? The 49ers, meanwhile, could point to plenty of other problems, including going 1 for 13 on third downs. And letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not pretend the Patriots and Giants were absolutely perfect on special teams, either. New Englandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Danny Woodhead fumbled a kickoff return in the second half, leading to a field goal by Cundiff. The Giants, meanwhile, got pushed back 5 yards by a sloppy delay-of-game penalty before Tynesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; gameending kick. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can never take for granted the ability to hit a field goal at the end of a game,â&#x20AC;? Green said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every now and then, you can have a disaster.â&#x20AC;?

If I had realized earlier what a sense of freedom and maturity getting my license would give me, I would have gotten it the day I turned 16. — ALSO A LATE DRIVER DEAR ABBY: “Rather” has good reason to fear driving: Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among U.S. teens. In 2009, about 3,000 teens ages 15 to 19 were killed and 350,000 were treated in emergency rooms. After graduation she can choose a college in an urban area with sidewalks, bicycle lanes and good public transit and minimize — or even eliminate — the need to drive. People who walk are less likely to experience many health problems. They are not the ones who should consider talking to a therapist. Rather, it is those drivers who account for the 65 percent of trips under a mile that are taken by car. — PROMOTING TRANSPORTATION SAFETY

DEAR ABBY: If “Rather” wants to drive and just needs to get past the initial fear that comes along with the enormous responsibility, then your advice was on target for how to get over her insecurity. However, if she just prefers to walk, I can tell her from personal experience that a person can function just fine, especially in a large city. I took driver’s ed when I was 16 and never got comfortable driving, nor did I feel the need to get my license. I am now 33, living in a large city. I walk to my job, the grocery store and anywhere else I need to go. If I choose to venture farther, there is public transportation. I am selfsufficient. I have never yearned to have my driver’s license, and I am totally comfortable being a pedestrian. — HAPPY ON FOOT IN MILWAUKEE Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

Horoscopes by Holiday BY HOLIDAY MATHIS Maybe it’s yesterday’s new moon in Aquarius, or maybe it’s Venus squaring the true node in Sagittarius, but there’s a restless energy that begs to be set loose on the world. The best journeys mix adventure with doing good works. The outdoors will have great appeal, and the necessity of fresh air will be pronounced. ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll be highly productive, putting out a stream of quality work. Your creativity is matched by your marketing skills. You’ll present things in an irresistible light. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll find others who enjoy the same things as you do. The chance to talk about the specifics of your interest doesn’t come along every day, and you’ll enjoy getting into the deeper levels of knowledge on this topic. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Give your curiosity free rein, and you’ll find that you have many questions about those in your network of acquaintances. Start asking questions. CANCER (June 22July 22). You’ll be made

aware of exciting options. Maybe the options were always available to you and you just didn’t realize it before. This new awareness gives you a fresh sense of freedom. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll feel more attuned to a loved one, and you’ll be compelled to watch this person with great attention. What you observe will increase your respect for this person. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Think about all of the people who profit from the work you do. Value your gifts, and they will, too. This is an excellent time to push for a much bigger share of the bounty. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The people in your life are a mix of wonderful and not so wonderful qualities. You wish you could take the good and leave the bad, but instead you have to accept the whole mix and strive to bring out the best in everyone. SCORPIO (Oct. 24Nov. 21). Being well rested will make it much easier for you to steer the action with your higher mind. Get the sleep and sustenance you need now,

and tomorrow you’ll have increased powers of selfdiscipline. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). In order to feel emotionally in control, you may have to deal with lingering childhood or family issues. This doesn’t have to excite drama or conflict. It can be done privately in your own journal or meditation practice. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). You haven’t felt compelled to reach out to certain friends in a long time, though you do feel a strong kinship. The spirit of your love thrives sometimes in spite of evidence. But can the other person feel it, too? AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18). You’ll be making fresh connections. Remember that other people don’t know what you know. Avoid slipping into talk that is so specific to your work or culture that outsiders won’t understand it. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It will be helpful to acknowledge your own fears relating to security and your ability to earn. Take a practical look at the way you’ve been spending

your money, and initiate a plan for stretching your resources. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 24). You have a strong instinct for making money in the first part of the year. Cut down on expenses so you can invest in yourself. You’ll have to work harder to stay on course in May, but in June, it will actually benefit you to give in to some of the delightful distractions around you. Seize the moment! Capricorn and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 10, 49, 22 and 19. CELEBRITY PROFILES: Mischa Barton received critical acclaim in her theatrical performances on the Broadway stage, but it was her role as “Marisa” on “The O.C.” that catapulted her to “it girl” status. The Aquarius actress was born under a Libra moon, highlighting beauty, style and charm.

Kentucky mayor fatally shot; suspect surrenders  Associated Press

HICKMAN, Ky. — The mayor of a small western Kentucky town was shot dead early Monday morning in his home, and a suspect turned himself in shortly afterward. Hickman Police Chief Tony Grogan said 30-year-old Thomas Joseph Lattus walked into the police department around 1 a.m. CST and told an officer he had just shot Mayor Charles Murphy. Lattus has been charged with murder. Just after Lattus was taken into custody, a witness told police he’d heard a gunshot at Murphy’s home and that he’d seen a truck leaving the scene that was parked at the station. An officer went to Murphy’s home and found the mayor’s body in the bedroom. Lattus was being held at the Fulton County Detention Facility, where records do not indicate whether he has an attorney. A home phone number for Lattus could not immediately be found Monday morning. Grogan did not say anything about a motive. Morrison Williamson, manager at Hickman

Hardware, said people in the town of about 2,500 were shocked to wake up and find out the mayor had been killed. He first heard about it early in the morning from his wife. “Next thing I know, people started calling the store, saying ‘Did you hear what happened?”’ Williamson said. Murphy, 68, oversaw the city’s preparation during historic flooding on the Mississippi River in April and May. Hickman, in the extreme southwest corner of Kentucky, is about 265 miles southwest of Louisville. Murphy was in his second term as mayor. He previously served on the city board of commissioners. Attempts to reach several city commissioners were unsuccessful Monday morning. Hickman is home to the Hickman-Dorena Ferry, which provides the only connection for automobiles between Kentucky and Missouri. A search of online court records in Kentucky showed that Lattus had no pending civil cases or criminal charges against him in Kentucky.

From the ridiculous to the sublime I know my chin dropped as I looked at my neighbor who was born back in the ’30s at the height of the Depression. We’d been talking about bathrooms and trying to keep them warm in winter. I’d remarked, Well, at least we aren’t marching outside to use an outhouse in the middle of the night! She nodded but said she remembered how exciting it had been when government workers came down her country road building outhouses — for free! — for families that had none. That’s when my jaw dropped. As a city girl growing up in the ’50s, I’d thought the height of poverty was to have no indoor plumbing. It had never occurred to me that there were hardworking farming families who didn’t even have an outhouse to go to. Of course, it’s not just us 20th century Southerners who’ve had difficulties with this sort of thing. I happened to pick up a beautiful little book at a local flea market last Wednesday with illustrations from Medieval manuscripts and descriptions of what everyday life was like for peasant

and for prince. Not only did poor families cram into oneroom huts, Ryland but their Bruhwiler l i v e s t o c k often lived Columnist indoors with them. (Just imagine.) The wealthy didn’t have it a whole lot better. Courtiers residing in the magnificent palace of Versailles “complained that there were not enough privies for them to use” so they had “to relieve themselves in corners.” That sure shot my postcard-palace fantasies. Yes, it’s been one of those weeks when I kept learning all sorts of intriguing tidbits. Andrea Schuhmann from Strawberry Plains Audubon Center gave an excellent talk chock-full of facts about predators — from bobcats to bears — at the library last Tuesday. Folks used to come to Mississippi from all over the country to hunt bear, she said, but nowadays there are, at most, 120 in the whole state, though just recently they’ve started to gain a little ground down in the Delta.

People sometimes ask her why in the world we’d want to support the growth of potentially dangerous critters like a bear or panther. Well, she said, look what happened to the deer population when we destroyed the Eastern red wolf, its natural foe. Pretty as is a white-tailed deer, it’s turned into a destructive nuisance all over the South. Now — contrary to popular opinion, she insisted — coyotes very rarely hunt deer or cattle. They are basically solitary hunters, or they work in pairs. Even wolves, who are much larger, have to attack in good-sized packs to take down large game. On the other hand, coyotes do love watermelons (!) which they can consume because although they have a predator’s scissor-slashing teeth to rip off their prey’s flesh, the back teeth of canines are slightly blunt. So they can grind bones to get to the rich and tasty marrow and gnaw a bit of grass for good digestion. Or munch down on a nice, ripe melon. Another treat I enjoyed last week was having Fr. Rich of St. James Church lend me his copy of “The Five Books of Moses” by Robert Alter. It is a mag-

nificent translation with commentary by a brilliant Jewish scholar, and it’s making dense and tedious passages of the Bible come alive. Even trivial details can stir the imagination, such as his explaining that when Israel is described as a land “flowing with milk and honey,” don’t imagine cow’s milk. It was probably goat’s. And since they weren’t yet raising hives of bees in those early times, their “honey” was most likely “a sweet syrup extracted from dates.” Well, now we know. More deeply interesting is his discussion of verses that have always disturbed me. For instance, why does it say that God hardened Pharaoh’s heart so that he wouldn’t let the Israelites go — since that implies that he turns Pharaoh into His puppet, and who could blame a puppet if someone else is pulling its strings? No one knows the answer for sure, of course, but to read through the possibilities that scholars have suggested over the centuries is fascinating. Finally, there was that cute video that Steve and Charlotte forwarded just last night: A crow hops on a jar lid and slides down a snow-covered roof. (Whoopie!)
