Sweet Peppers Manager Tess Benson puts out one of the many healthy items on the deli’s menu.

The Alcorn County Board of Supervisors heard some requests regarding courthouse office space and made several board appointments on Monday. The new coroner, Jay Jones, is requesting permission to establish an office in the courthouse. He said he needs a small space that can accommodate a desk and some file storage. Previous coroner Dan Leeth had an office at his home. In another discussion regarding courthouse space, Sheriff Charles Rinehart encouraged the board to consider not moving the equipment in the old 911 office so that a backup system is readily

Program promotes menu options BY STEVE BEAVERS

It’s time to start eating healthy. The Mississippi Hospitality & Restaurant Association is helping individuals do just that. In efforts to help the state rid itself of the tag of “fattest state in the nation” the Hospitality & Restaurant Association has unveiled the statewide drive called “Eat Healthy Mississippi”. The program is designed to promote locally grown produce in the preparation of dietitian-approved, healthy dining menu options at restaurants throughout the state. All approved menu choices will be featured at, along with resources to educate restaurants and consumers about nutrition along with eating and living well. A pair of the local restaurants are part of the promotion. Sweet Peppers Deli and McDonald’s each have 12 or more menu items that are appealing to those looking to take a healthier approach. “We have done really well and

saw an increase in sales on our lite menu,” said Sweet Peppers Manager Tess Benson of being included in the promotion. “All of our food is on the healthy side and you can find plenty of healthy items to choose from our menu.” Sweet Peppers has a lite line that includes seven items with only 293 calories. Some of the new items on the menu include Turkey and Avocado, BBQ Shrimp Crisp — a whole

wheat wrap with shrimp and vegetables — and a Waldorf Wrap. “It is our hope that this innovative approach to linking local producers to local restaurants will provide consumers with even more healthy dining options at their favorite restaurants throughout the state,” said Mike Cashion, MHRA Executive Director. Gov. Phil Bryant is also on board to help the state get healthier. “We all must take seriously the impact lifestyle choices make on health,” Bryant said. “Poor choices can lead to obesity, disease and other health complications, but smart choices such as healthful diets and regular exercise can lead to a longer life. I encourage everyone to adopt a healthy lifestyle and choose wholesome foods at home and when dining out.” Through MHRA’s strategic partnership with HealthyDiningFinder. com, participating restaurants will have access to Healthy Dining’s ex-

CAYP group forms ‘Founder’s Board’ BY BOBBY J. SMITH

The Corinth Area Young Professionals recently held a meeting to discuss the group’s future. Forming committees and planning upcoming Young Professionals events were among the main topics of the meeting. The group decided to form the “Founder’s Board” — a committee of volunteers made up of nine members and Andrea Rose as The Alliance contact. Officers for the board would consist of a chairperson, who would have volunteer vice-chairs for special events or as needed, as well as a person serving the Please see CAYP | 2A

Man speaks the truth about lies Rogers talks about career as polygraph examiner BY JEBB JOHNSTON

Rick Rogers thinks you are a liar. But don’t take it personally. He thinks that of everyone else, too, including himself. “I believe we are conditioned to be lousy liars, although not from the lack of practice,” said Rogers, a former polygraph examiner for the Dallas Police Department. “Since the average person tells two or three lies every day, you’d think we’d get better at it.” In a talk with Kiwanis on Tuesday, the Corinth resident discussed the nature of lies and some of his experiences with the polygraph. “Since most of us tell lies ourselves,” he said, “we’re not really comfortable calling other people liars … I get paid to call people liars, but most people would rather not know and don’t want to confront a liar.” He noted that some fibs are rooted in tradition, such as Santa Claus, and some are simply polite, such as a response to the question, “Do I look nice in this?” Rogers began working with the polygraph in 1984 and continues to offer his services today. He trained at the University of Houston with

spools of paper. “The key to effective lie detection is the understanding of the psychological mindset and the physiological change that occurs as a person lies,” he said. The tester can reach one of three outcomes — truthful, untruthful or inconclusive.

Those planning on running or walking in the 31st Annual Corinth Coca-Cola Class 10K are being provided with a training program for the May 5 run through downtown Corinth. “The program is more geared for those who aren’t doing any exercise,” said race co-coordinator Amy Smith.

Rooster attacks toddler, mom says Associated Press

OCEAN SPRINGS — Ocean Springs Alderman Chic Cody says the city has to address the rooster issue once and for all. Cody’s comments came Monday after a woman told the Mississippi Press that her 2-year-old daughter was scratched on the arm by one of the roosters last week.

It’s the seventh reported incident of a runin between the roosters and children since November. Sarah Fountain, the child’s mother, now wants the roosters confined or relocated and the city of Ocean Springs to cover her medical expenses. “We need to decide about the roosters once

and for all, one way or the other,” Cody said. The board of aldermen meets Wednesday. A flock of about 10 roosters showed up in July and seemed to belong to no one. Only 2 roosters -- affectionately known as Carl and The General -- are still alive and have become a novelty in the downtown area of Ocean Springs.

dual office of secretary/ treasurer. Members suggested the committee should meet monthly, on the Friday before each Young Professionals event. They discussed adding different kinds of events — including lunch & learn and breakfast — but decided to continue with the group’s current type of events, mostly evening networking events. Upcoming events include networking at Pizza Grocery on Feb. 16 from 6 until 8 p.m.; networking at Cafe Mike’s on March 15 from 6 until 8 p.m.; and a fish fry or crab boil at Pickwick. The committee will

line up other events through October, when there will be a large barbecue event and a kickoff for the next fiscal year. Other issues discussed by the groups included the founding of a charitable side of the organization. They determined the main benefit of Corinth Area Young Professionals is networking, and made suggestions to change the name of the group to Crossroads Young Professionals — and do a bigger push through social media and word of mouth. The group began discussion centered on its formal incorporation, non-profit status and by-laws. They discussed the pos-

sibility of charging for membership or events and how this would be done. Corinth Area Young Professionals is a group that meets once a month on a Thursday evening for networking, food and fun. The CAYP is a way for young professionals to meet other young professionals from Corinth and Alcorn County. For those new to the area or with a new business, the group provides a fun atmosphere to help people become part of the community.

10K: Organizers offer up training tips for 10K runners CONTINUED FROM 1A

walkers are encouraged to prepare slowly for the race. Over the first month, there is at least one rest day in between workouts. “The most you will have to do per day over the first month is 20 minutes,” added Smith. A program that starts with walking and gradually increases to running is best. During the first month, participants are slated to train three times a week. Participants will work their way up as they get ready for the race. “The program will help you health wise whether you take part in the race or not,” said Smith. “We are trying to promote the race as a catalyst for people to use to begin a healthy lifestyle.” Those training need to remember that the 6.2 mile course isn’t a one-day

event. Preparation begins months before with walking or running the course with just a short period of training being the wrong thing to do. Runners/walkers can also incorporate the program into their daily routine. “Nothing says you have to discontinue the program once the race is over,” said Smith. Organizers have offered some training tips for those intending to take part in the 10K. Spend a few minutes before and after your workout doing some light stretching. Mixing — if you are just starting, mixing short periods of running and walking is best. As you get stronger, you can lengthen the running time. Practice LSD — long slow distance. Think about the duration of your activity, not speed.

Too hard and too fast will lead to injury. Breathing — exercise at a “walkie-talkie” pace — the ability to talk during your exercise. Labored breathing is no fun and unnecessary. Breathe through your mouth. Listen to your body — aches and pains that last more than a few days should be checked by a health care professional. Call your doctor if you experience chest discomfort, heart rhythm changes, unusual shortness of breath, dizziness or nausea. Older people, or anyone with pre-existing medical problems, i.e. heart or lung problems, should check with their doctor before starting an exercise program.

ROGERS: Man has tested murderers, sex offenders CONTINUED FROM 1A

Rogers has tested many murderers and sex offenders. He described one subject as a sociopath who killed many people. In the case of a sociopath, the polygraph results may be “dampened.”

“What a real psychopath fears is not what he did — he’s justified that — it’s the fear of getting caught,” he said. A polygraph examination can only be given with the subject’s consent. “Sometimes, the decep-

tive person is the first person to raise their hand,” said Rogers. Polygraph testing is used by some law enforcement agencies to screen potential employees, but the admissibility of polygraph testimony in courts is limited.

Letters to the Editor

Supporting patients with heart disease To the editor: February is American Heart Month, a time to raise awareness about cardiovascular disease, support advances in heart research and recognize those heart patients who are fighting and winning the heart disease war. This year, The Mended Hearts, a national volunteer and a community-based organization offering hope, encouragement and support to heart patients, now aligned with the American College of Cardiology, will celebrate its 60th year anniversary. The theme “Our Foundation for the Future” recognizes our established foundation built over the years that will continue to support our future endeavors. We know from experiences -- and scientific studies confirm -- that a patientto-patient visiting program is often a critical component in a patient’s recovery and return to a fulfilling life. In Corinth, Mended Hearts chapter No. 349 conducts an accredited visiting program at Magnolia Regional Health Center. Our volunteers visit heart patients and their families in the hospital when they need us the most. Our members also make follow-up visits and telephone calls; answer lifestyle questions; and write letters and e-mails to offer emotional support and encouragement. Perhaps most important of all, we listen. Since receiving its charter in April 2008, Corinth Mended Hearts visitors have made 397 hospital visits to recovering heart patients at our local hospital. Our motto is “It’s great to be alive — and to help others” and during this American Heart Month we invite current heart patients to request a hospital visit and those who have recovered to become involved in helping others. To learn more about the services and outreach we offer to heart patients, please contact us. You can reach Mended Hearts by phone locally at 662-293-1086 or 662-2869476 or nationally at 1-888-432-7899 or on line at Dick Wood, president Mended Hearts Chapter No. 349

March primary gives voters another option To the editor: Constituents informed our U.S. Congressman Alan Nunnelee not to raise the debt ceiling or to the continuing resolution to fund Obama Care or Planned Parenthood. What did our newly elected representative do? He voted for a compromise continuing resolution which funded both Obama Care and Planned Parenthood. His votes for HR 2608, 2112, and 1473 will also continue to fund Obama Care and Planned Parenthood. Nunnelee has simply followed the Appropriations Committee’s Chairman Hal Rogers’ voting direction on these bills. Our congressmen are elected to follow their constituents and not the dictates of Washington. The March primary will give us an opportunity to select a representative who will follow our direction. In the primary, Henry Ross is on the ballot to challenge Alan Nunnelee. Ross is conservative, a constitutional lawyer, has been a mayor, judge and worked in the U.S. Justice Department under President Bush. I look to Ross to give us the representation we deserve in the First District. Donald Vastlik CR 173, Corinth

Then state’s Medicaid costs to they used federal stimulus funds. steadily increase.

But as most taxpayers know, the Legislature had another sizable source of funds they used to pay for Medicaid -- the state’s Health Care Trust Fund. After the state’s $4.1 billion dollar tobacco settlement, the HCTF was established on July 1, 1999, with the initial deposit of $280 million in tobacco settlement funds. Left alone, the HCTF would today contain well over $2.4 billion in principal earning as much as $100 million in annual interest payments to spend on public health care in the state. Yet today ,the HCTF currently has a balance of $97.4 million. The Legislature appears set to spend that entire amount to prop up the state’s troubled budget and avoid additional budget cuts. Some have tried to blame the depletion of the HCTF on Republicans in general and Barbour in particular. The facts contradict that posture, as confirmed by former Democratic Attorney General Mike Moore in a 2010 interview with this writer: “It hasn’t mattered who was in office, Republicans, Democrats, Musgrove, Barbour, or who was leading the Legislature.

It’s the greatest disappointment I’ve had in 20 years that they couldn’t resist spending it all.” More than that, Democratic lawmakers defended the practice two years ago with many of the same arguments offered by Republicans currently about the need to spend the HCTF monies on health care. In 2010, state Rep. Robert Johnson, D-Natchez, didn’t dispute that lawmakers and governors had almost exhausted the HCTF in a bipartisan fashion. But he argued that the funds were spent in great measure on Medicaid. “We did spend it, but it was for health care and that’s where we directed a lot of it,” said Johnson. “It is true that we spend a lot on other functions of government, too, but that’s our responsibility to make decision about using all the state’s resources in the most effective manner.” Republican legislative leaders are likely to echo Johnson’s 2010 words during the 2012 session Sid Salter is a syndicated columnist.

When your heart settles on a place, it’s hard to convince it that anywhere else can be home. No matter that elsewhere you make friends, have a nicer house, frequent amazing restaurants and have access to a variety of breads and other groceries the stalwart Piggly Wiggly does not offer. It doesn’t even matter that the spectacular Rocky Mountains are outside your window, iced with snow and positioned against a Windex-blue sky. You eventually miss the humbler North Mississippi hills, worn to speed-bump size by thousands of years of nature’s abuse. You miss the sycamores with their loincloth leaves and the skinny dogwoods with their spring surprise. Most of all you miss the people, the slow-talking, slothfully rhythmic folk who speak on the sidewalk

whether they know you or not. You miss the long and circuitous stories that pass for answers to questions that could be answered with a simple “yes” or “no.” You miss what you have always known. It’s aggravating, almost. Last month I left the land of no litter and dramatic vistas and cold that doesn’t feel cold to come home to tornado threats and the damp chill that permeates a Southern spring. I left a neighborhood with art galleries and animal control and a French bakery where the baguettes are fresh each morning to return to the thundering peace of this place. I was homesick for, well, home. To find out more about Rheta Grimsley Johnson and her books, visit www.

State Zoo owners ask judge to return seized animals Associated Press

COLLINS — The owners of the Collins Zoo have asked a judge to return 11 animals seized by state wildlife officers in January. The owners, Gus and Betty White, are asking the Covington County Circuit Court to review a justice court order that led to the Jan. 25 seizure of tigers, wolf hybrids, leopards, cougars and a Rhesus macaque by the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks. The Whites’ attorney, A. Regnal Blackledge, tells the Hattiesburg American that the state violated a regulation that calls for a “reasonable period of time” to correct deficiencies in facilities housing what are legally defined as “inherently dangerous animals” following an initial inspection. He says the rule provides that after the period allotted for corrections, a follow-up inspection is in order. Betty White said when MDWFP officials inspected her facility in October, she didn’t hear from them again until January, when a court order for seizure was already in place. “Without any notice or opportunity to be heard and refute and/or rebut the allegations of (MDWFP), justice court granted an order for seizure ...” the Whites’ petition filed in circuit court states. “If you’re going to close them down based on the

regulation, you’ve got to follow the regulation,” Blackledge said. MDWFP spokesman Jim Walker says the agency has done what they were obligated to do and obtained a legal court order. “As far as we’re concerned, this matter has been concluded,” he said. “If the Whites want to take further legal action, that’s their right.” Walker said January’s seizures come after a long and winding road of legal action. “They had a lot of chances to bring up their standards, and they were not up to standards for the proper care of those animals,” he said. Betty White said the department is picking on her and her establishment, explaining that she’s been in and out of court for a quarter century. Betty White said none of her animals have ever escaped or harmed anyone. She said her cages are built from heavy-gauge wire that exceeds USDA standards, and they installed a 10-foot perimeter fence in 2010 that also exceeds USDA standards. The zoo still contains a 15-year-old caracal, which is a large, wild cat, and an exceptionally old kinkajou, a “honey bear” native to South America. The Humane Society of the United States has said it’s helping coordinate the placement of the animals from the Collins Zoo.

House panel snubs Hood’s effort to testify on proposal BY JEFF AMY Associated Press

JACKSON — A state House committee voted Tuesday to push forward a bill that would cut Attorney General Jim Hood’s authority, turning down Hood’s request to speak to the group before it voted. Hood, steaming mad that he couldn’t speak, claimed the bill is unconstitutional. The lone Democrat in statewide office, Hood said he made a personal plea to House Judiciary A Committee Mark Baker to have extra time to study the bill. “To pass a bill affecting the constitutional powers of the attorney general and not let him speak, that shows that they didn’t care what the law is,” Hood said immediately after the meeting. “This is a partisan-backed bill.” The committee voted 14-9 along party lines to approve the bill, with

Baker cutting off debate while Democrats were still trying to offer amendments. Baker, a Brandon Republican, said during the meeting that Hood has had plenty of time to lobby members and make his opinion known. “This bill has been around for five or six years, so I didn’t see the need for a hearing,” Baker said. Baker said after the meeting that he would have allowed Hood to speak during the meeting if Hood had only asked. “He asked for a separate public hearing,” Baker said. “He didn’t ask to speak to the meeting. If he had asked, I would have recognized him. He sat at the table.” The measure, which the full House is expected to consider Thursday, would allow statewide elected officials and the heads of state agencies to hire lawyers without the attorney general’s approval. It would also require the

attorney general and any other government official who pays a lawyer more than $100,000 to submit contracts for online publication. Hood is already voluntarily putting contracts with outside lawyers online. Baker said that the bill is meant to make sure that the attorney general can’t override the wishes of an agency director or of any other statewide elected official. “It’s good policy that agency heads have a voice in litigation that involves their agency,” Baker said. Baker said that at times in the past, the attorney general had improperly affected state policy by how he represented the state or by declining to represent an agency. He could not cite specific instances. Republicans have opposed efforts by Hood and past attorneys general to launch big lawsuits against corporations that can involve huge sums of money and sweeping outcomes.

Party members have been trying for years to limit Hood’s authority. Previous bills passed by the Republican-led Senate would have curtailed Hood’s ability to hire and pay outside lawyers. Those bills died in what was then a Democratic-controlled House. Republicans won a House majority in November. Tuesday’s bill, sponsored by House Speaker Philip Gunn, R-Clinton, instead would let others hire lawyers without Hood’s OK any time an agency head finds Hood has a conflict or can’t adequately represent the agency.

BY KEN THOMAS Associated Press

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Reversing an earlier stand, President Barack Obama is now encouraging donors to give generously to the kind of political fundraising groups he once assailed as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;threat to democracy.â&#x20AC;? He had little choice, his campaign says, if he was to compete with big-money conservative groups that are sure to attack him this fall. Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign is urging its top donors to support Priorities USA, a â&#x20AC;&#x153;super PACâ&#x20AC;? led by two former Obama aides that has struggled to compete with the tens of millions of dollars collected by Republican-backed outside groups. Campaign officials said Tuesday the president had signed off on the decision. The president is already facing criticism that he is compromising on principle and succumbing to Washington political rules he pledged to change. Yet in a plea to supporters, campaign manager Jim Messina said it would be unfair and unwise for the presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s re-election effort to live under one set of rules while the Republican presidential nominee benefits from a new supercharged campaign finance landscape. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We decided to do this because we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford for the work youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing in your communities, and the grassroots donations you give to support it, to be destroyed by hundreds of millions of dollars in negative ads,â&#x20AC;? Messina said. The Supreme Court opened the door to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;superâ&#x20AC;? political action committees, stripping away some limits on campaign contributions in its 2010 decision in the Citizens United case, a ruling that Obama has spoken

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We decided to do this because we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford for the work youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing in your communities, and the grassroots donations you give to support it, to be destroyed by hundreds of millions of dollars in negative ads.â&#x20AC;? Jim Messina Campaign manager against. The new super PACs canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t coordinate directly with candidates or their campaigns, but they have played a major role in the Republican primary contests by raising millions of dollars for negative advertising in early contests in Iowa, South Carolina and Florida. Messina said senior campaign officials, along with some White House officials and members of Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cabinet, would attend and speak at fundraising events for Priorities USA but would not directly ask for money. He said Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and first lady Michelle Obama would not be part of the effort and would remain focused on Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own re-election campaign. Republicans jeered Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision, and they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t alone. Supporters of more openness in government said the president had capitulated on his past calls to rein in the role of money in politics. Former Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Wis., a longtime advocate for campaign finance limits, said the decision to support the super PAC would â&#x20AC;&#x153;gut a winning, progressive strategy. When Democrats play by Republican rules, people see our party as weak, and a false alternative to the power of rich individual and corporate interests that are increasingly dominating our government.â&#x20AC;?

Bob Edgar, president of Common Cause, said the notion that White House officials â&#x20AC;&#x153;are not soliciting money is laughable.â&#x20AC;? Republicans criticized the Obama campaignâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s embrace of the outside groups, calling it a hypocritical shift by Obama after he criticized the influence of secret, specialinterest money. Obama has previously referred to the money as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;threat to our democracy.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just another broken promise,â&#x20AC;? House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said of Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision. Not facing any primary opposition, Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign has socked away tens of millions of dollars. But his team took notice as recent fundraising reports revealed a large disparity with Republican super PACs. American Crossroads and Crossroads GPS, two groups tied to Republican strategist Karl Rove, raised $51 million last year, while major Democratic groups, including Priorities USA Action, collected $19 million. Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign and its supporters at Priorities USA and the Democratic National Committee actually have out-spent their Republican counterparts by nearly two to one, records show. Financial reports as of late 2011 show Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s re-election effort garnered nearly $253 million in contributions and had $95.9 million still on hand.

Groupon earnings


News Corp. earnings

Online deals company Groupon made a big splash in November when it went public. Today investors get a look at how it has done since its initial public offering. Some merchants have become increasingly skeptical that partnering with Groupon and similar services really benefits them. Investors want some insights into Groupon’s prospects for growth. They’ll want to see whether it has more subscribers – and whether they’re buying deals regularly.

Share price: $24.19

In the weeks after the British phone-hacking scandal rattled News Corp., the media giant created a plan to buy back up to $5 billion shares. That gave News Corp.’s stock a boost and helped soothe investors angry about the scandal. Financial analysts expect News Corp. to report higher earnings when it reports fiscal second-quarter results today. Watch for any word of another round of buybacks.

An iPhone surge? Did the iPhone help Sprint Nextel stop the defections of its most lucrative customers? We find out when the wireless carrier reports its fourth-quarter earnings. Sprint has lost subscribers from its contract-based plans for years. It started selling the iPhone in October, and analysts believe that brought Sprint more customers. That doesn’t necessarily mean higher earnings – like AT&T and Verizon, Sprint subsidizes each phone.

No. 1 Kentucky thumps Florida The Associated Press

LEXINGTON, Ky. — Freshman Michael KiddGilchrist had 13 points and 13 rebounds and topranked Kentucky easily passed its toughest Southeastern Conference test to date with a 78-58 victory over No. 8 Florida on Tuesday night. The Wildcats (24-1, 100) have won 49 straight at home and matched their best start in league play since 2005 thanks to three freshmen starters who have jelled into a formidable defense to go along with their high-powered offense. Doron Lamb scored 18 points and freshman Anthony Davis added 16 for Kentucky, which won its

16th straight overall and ended Florida’s run of seven consecutive wins. Kenny Boynton led the Gators (19-5, 7-2) with 18 points, but the team with the nation’s most 3-pointers this season went 6 of 27 from behind the arc and shot 34.9 percent overall from the field. One of the last remaining questions for a team that continues to believe it can play for a national championship in just under two months had been the quality of opponents the Wildcats had faced after not meeting a ranked team in over a month. Kentucky answered it emphatically. Freshman point guard

Marquis Teague finished with 12 points and 10 assists as the Wildcats attacked on both ends. Florida scored the first two baskets of the second half to cut it to 38-30, but Kentucky answered with an 11-0 run sparked when Teague and Darius Miller hit consecutive 3-pointers. Florida freshman Bradley Beal then drove to the hoop only to have Davis reject his shot and Davis swatted another from Patric Young on the possession for good measure. Miller added another jumper and Kidd-Gilchrist spun, hit a basket and was fouled. He completed the three-point play that made it 49-30 as Florida missed

eight straight shots before snapping the skid. The lead reached 20 points when Lamb buried a 3 from the left corner with 11:27 left and by as many as 21 late. Beal scored 14 points and Young added 12 for the Gators. Florida insisted before the game all the pressure was on the Wildcats, but this group that starts three freshmen and two sophomores doesn’t appear to get rattled easily. Their only blemish is a one-point loss in December at Indiana. Fans received a panoramic black-and-white poster of Davis stretching Please see KENTUCKY | 9A

Memphis to join Big East, source says The Associated Press

Memphis is the latest school to sign up for a spot in the new Big East. A person familiar with the decision says Memphis is joining the Big East for all sports in 2013.. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because an official announcement would be made Wednesday. The Big East announced it would hold a teleconference with Commissioner John Marinatto, University of Memphis President Shirley C. Raines and Memphis Athletic director R.C. Johnson, though it did not give any details about what would be discussed. Johnson said a new confer-

ence would be held in Memphis after the teleconference to discuss the university’s athletic affiliation. U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen (DTenn.) couldn’t wait until the news became official to celebrate. “I am thrilled that my hometown team and alma mater the University of Memphis is being invited to join the Big East,” Cohen said in a statement. “Joining the Big East will not only be great for the University of Memphis, but it will be an economic catalyst for the City of Memphis. “Thanks to Louisville Coach Rick Pitino for his strong support. And Congratulations to Dr. Shirley Raines and R.C. Johnson.”

The Tigers will become the fourth Conference USA team to move to the Big East in the last two months, along with Houston, Central Florida and SMU. first reported Memphis was on the verge of joining the Big East. Memphis is the seventh future member the Big East has added in the last two months, but the first that brings more value in basketball than football. The Tigers haven’t had a winning record in football since 2007, but the men’s basketball team has been a Top 25 mainstay. The Big East is trying to replace basketball powers Syracuse and Pittsburgh and West Virginia, and create a football league with at least

12 teams. Syracuse and Pittsburgh are leaving for the Atlantic Coast Conference and West Virginia is headed to the Big 12. The Big East has been adding new future members for the last two months. In December, Boise State and San Diego State agreed to join for football only in 2013, along with SMU, UCF and Houston. Last month, the Big East announced Navy will become a football-only member in 2015. When West Virginia, Syracuse and Pitt will leave the Big East is still up in the air. West Virginia has sued the Big East in an effort to join Please see MEMPHIS | 9A

his arms out over a span of more than eight basketballs. When he puts his arms up, he’s been almost unstoppable in leading the nation’s topranked defense by field goal percentage.

BY JOHN ZENOR Associated Press

AUBURN, Ala. — JaMychal Green scored 19 points and Trevor Releford added 15, leading Alabama to a 68-50 victory over rival Auburn on Tuesday night. The Crimson Tide (16-7, 5-4 Southeastern Conference) won its third straight since a fourgame losing streak, and this time did it without suspended star Tony Mitchell. Alabama used a 19-6 run to build a 19-point lead by the midpoint of the second half and coasted to its fourth consecutive win in the rivalry. Green made 8 of 13 shots, including his second 3-pointer of the season. Releford capitalized on three first-half technical fouls against Auburn and was 9 of 10 from the free throw line. He had six turnovers and five steals. Charles Hankerson scored 14 points for the Tide and made 3 of 5 from 3-point range. He came in averaging 3.4 points and finished within two points of his career high.

O’Neal’s freshman conference record set 22 years ago. Kentucky’s lone problem was a slow start. The Wildcats fell behind 6-0 and missed their first seven shots before scoring nine straight points. The game featured frenetic up-and-down play early. In one sequence, Mike Rosario went behind his back to find Young for a dunk, but KiddGilchrist answered when he floated an alley-oop pass to

Davis for a slam over Erik Murphy. It was an electric — and sometimes bizarre — atmosphere among the 24,389 fans at Rupp Arena. Former Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl sat courtside signing a few autographs, and at one point during free throws by Beal in the first half a fan in the student section tried to distract him by wearing nothing but a blue Speedo.

It didn’t work. Beal made the free throws, but Florida went more than 6 minutes without a field goal. Teague’s 3-pointer gave the Wildcats their first doubledigit lead with 1:38 left in the first half and Lamb hit two 3-pointers in the final minute to put them up 38-26. Florida would close the gap to eight points to start the second half, but never got back within striking distance.

MEMPHIS: League intends to hold West Virginia, Pitt and Syracuse until 2014 CONTINUED FROM 8A

the Big 12 in 2012. The Big East filed a countersuit trying to force WVU to abide by the conference’s bylaws, which require a 27-month notification period for schools to depart. Big East Commissioner John Marinatto has said the league intends to hold West Virginia, Pitt and Syracuse until the summer of 2014. Memphis has been trying to move from Conference USA since being snubbed when the Big East expanded in 2005, losing a long-time rivalry with Louisville. A departure now would be pricey for the Tigers. The exit fee from Conference USA for 2013-14 is $500,000 plus Memphis’ share of television rights revenue, which is

approximately $6.13 million, according to a league spokeswoman. The Tigers have one of the strongest basketball programs in the country. Memphis had made 23 NCAA tournament appearances and lost in the national title game in 1973 and 2008. They also reached the Final Four. Louisville coach Rick Pitino has been lobbying the Big East to add Memphis to help strengthen the league in basketball. Louisville and Memphis have spent years together first in the Missouri Valley Conference, the Metro Conference and Conference USA. Pitino again called out for league officials to consider Memphis after Louisville beat Memphis on Dec. 17.

“I’m just hoping the Big East gets smart and does something about that and allows them to come into the league,” Pitino said. “I keep getting on the pulpit and saying this: We got hurt big time and we need Memphis. Memphis doesn’t need us, we need Memphis. We need Temple. We need to build up basketball again.” Along with Louisville, Rutgers, Cincinnati, South Florida and Connecticut are the remaining Big East football schools. Providence, St. John’s, Georgetown, Seton Hall, Marquette, Villanova, DePaul and Notre Dame are the Big East schools that do not compete in the league’s football conference — but still help make up a strong basketball conference.

With John Calipari as coach, Memphis made four straight NCAA tournament appearances between 2006 and 2009. Josh Pastner, who took over when Calipari left for Kentucky in 2009, took Memphis to the NCAA tournament last season after winning the Conference USA tournament. Memphis will be hosting Conference USA’s men’s and women’s basketball tournaments in March. Memphis football has played in five bowls since 2003, but all have been lower-tier games. Lately, the program has hit the skids. Memphis just hired Justin Fuente as its new football coach, replacing Larry Porter who was fired after going 3-21 in two seasons. The Tigers play football at the Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium.

Newmans start ‘Rescue Ranch’

Bobby speaks Bobby Labonte drives the No. 47 Toyota during the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Auto Club 400 on March 27, 2011, in Fontana, California. (NASCAR photo)

Labonte, driver of No. 47 Toyota, opens up about personal life


s he rose through the NASCAR ranks, from being a helper on the race team of his big brother Terry to winning a Cup championship of his own, Bobby Labonte has often been reluctant to spend a lot of time talking about himself. Even as he won a Nationwide Series championship in 1991, and followed that with a Cup title in 2000, won 21 Cup races, 10 in Nationwide and another in the Truck Series along with the IROC title in 2001, he’s typically been the kind of driver who kept his head down, worked on his race cars and caused little controversy on or off the race track. He’s made some interesting career moves – some that worked out quite well and others that didn’t deliver the desired results. In 1994, he left his first full-time Cup car owner Bill Davis to drive for Joe Gibbs Racing, a move that produced immediate results in the form of three Cup wins in his first season with Gibbs and a top-10 points finish. He left Gibbs after the 2005 season – and back-toback winless years – to drive for Petty Enterprises. That pairing didn’t produce any victories, and last year, after two years driving for a hodgepodge of owners, he signed to drive the No. 47 Toyota at JTG-Daugherty Racing. He started the 2011 season with a fourthplace finish in the Daytona 500, but wound up 29th in the final points standings. As he’s preparing for another season behind the wheel of the No. 47 Camry, he spent some time talking to his team PR representatives about his personal life, giving answers that tell a lot about just what kind of person he is. For starters, he’s been married to his wife Donna since 1991, and they have two children, Tyler, 17, and Madison, 14. “Family is super important to me,” Labonte said. “I make sure I do the best job I can and at the same time wish I can do better. It’s not easy with the travel schedules, but it’s something you have to work really hard at doing. “We make sure we take 45 minutes at the table for dinner, and we get caught up during that time. Right now, Madison is busy with her volleyball games, and Tyler has his political views that are a hot topic we talk about a lot. Tyler’s also interested in getting his pilot’s license, and he has already soloed. We also talk about colleges he is interested

Two of NASCAR’s best-known animal lovers, Ryan Newman and his wife Krissie, have begun work on an animal rescue facility to be called “Rescue Ranch.” It will be located off N.C. Highway 21 near Statesville, N.C. The first phase of the project, which includes classrooms and offices, has been awarded to contractor Ronnie Smith, father of Newman’s fellow Cup driver Regan Smith, with completion expected later this year. Future plans call for a boarding facility, veterinary clinic, horse stalls and pastures, riding trails and educational camps.

Daytona 500 sets record purse The Sprint Cup Series’ season-opening Daytona 500 on Feb. 26 will offer a record purse of more than $19 million, and it will include a $200,000 bonus for the driver leading the 100th lap, which is halfway to the scheduled 500 miles. If the halfway mark is reached under caution, the bonus will be paid to the leader of the fifth consecutive green-flag lap following that caution. The total purse is $19,142,601, with the winner of the 54th running of NASCAR’s bestknown race set to earn a minimum of $1,431,325.

Annett gets Nationwide team When Rusty Wallace idled his Nationwide Series race shop, it left Michael Annett and his longtime sponsor, Pilot Flying J, without a NASCAR home. But Richard Petty Motorsports has filled the void by forming a Nationwide team for Annett. Last year, Annett had seven top-10 finishes and finished ninth in the final points standings.

(NASCAR photo) in at the moment.” Labonte also is big on giving back to the public. Like many Cup drivers, he has his own foundation, which works with various charities, and each year he hosts the Share the Road Memorial Ride, which honors cyclists killed riding their bikes. “My brothers-in-law introduced me to the sport,” Labonte said. “I watched it on television and then started riding bikes. I enjoyed the challenge, the enjoyment of the road, the enjoyment of seeing things and going to different places, and it’s a neat activity that is good for exercise. It’s fun and clears your heart and soul at times if need be.” Labonte, who had his own race team at the beginning of his driving career, still owns and operates a race team. Bobby Labonte Racing fields dirt Late Model cars for Earl Pearson Jr., who won national titles for Labonte in 2007, 2008 and 2009. “I always wanted to give back to grassroots racing because it’s where we all came from,” Labonte said. “It’s been good having the team.

Earl and the guys have won a lot of races, a few championships and we’ve been able to have a fun time with the team. “We had an off year last year, but we reorganized and got back to basics. We were building our own chassis and got off base. We’re looking forward to a better season.” The veteran Cup driver also owns a Red Mango yogurt and smoothie franchise in High Point, N.C., and he’s formed his own marketing agency, Breaking Limits. “I had an inkling to start a marketing agency, and it’s something I want to do for years to come,” he said. “I see firsthand what we do for sponsors and the work that goes into public relations and marketing to make the program successful.” Labonte is an outdoors type, hunting big game when his schedule allows, but he’s also a big fan of technological devices like iPhones and iPads. “I’ve always been a gadget guy and tech person,” he said. “I’ve always been on the cutting edge of something new, it seems like.”

National Speed Sport News, once the premier weekly trade paper for the motorsports industry, is returning to publication with new owners, a new look and a different schedule. Turn 3 Media, a company founded by Curt Moon, Joe Tripp and Ralph Sheheen, has acquired the rights to National Speed Sport News and plans a monthly print publication. The first issue of Speed Sport Magazine is set to roll off the presses in March, one year after the original paper, founded in 1934 and edited for decades by veteran journalist Chris Economaki, ceased publication.

Go Canada Racing rebranded The Nationwide Series team Go Canada Racing has changed its name to GC Motorsports International and plans to open the 2012 season with Sprint Cup veteran David Ragan doing the driving. Canadian driver Andrew Ranger also is set to return to the car for selected races, including the Napa Auto Parts 200 in Montreal.

Kenseth matriarch, 63, passes Nicola Sue “Nicky” Kenseth, mother of Sprint Cup driver Matt Kenseth and grandmother of Late Model racer Ross Kenseth, died last week at age 63 after a battle with Early Onset Alzheimer’s Disease.

#NewTricks: Martin debuts on Twitter

Danica Patrick speaks with the media during the 2012 Sprint Cup Series Media Tour on Jan. 23, 2012, in Concord, N.C. (NASCAR photo)

Patrick to use Baldwin Racing’s 2011 owner points The Sprint Cup circuit’s newest drawing card, Danica Patrick, will be guaranteed a starting spot in the Daytona 500, but the car owner points she’ll be able to fall back on won’t be coming from her car owner, the most recent Cup champion Tony Stewart, as some had expected. Instead, Stewart-Haas Racing has entered into an agreement with

Tommy Baldwin Racing, which will allow Patrick to use the points earned by Baldwin’s No. 36 Chevrolet last season. For record-keeping purposes, the No. 36, which finished 33rd in points last year and therefore is eligible for provisional starting spots for the first five races this season, will become the No. 10 (Patrick’s chosen car number), and Baldwin’s team

will be car owner of record. Patrick is set to drive in 10 races this year, while also competing in the Nationwide Series. David Reutimann is set to drive the Cup car in the 26 races where Patrick is not planning to compete. Dave Blaney, who drove the No. 36 last year, will have to qualify on speed to make the starting field for the Daytona 500.

Mark Martin is in the process of proving wrong the old adage about not being able to teach old dogs new tricks.

Reeves noncommittal on schools’ rainy day funds BY EMILY WAGSTER PETTUS Associated Press

JACKSON — It’s too early to decide whether local school districts should be required to tap into their financial reserves if there’s a dip in state education funding for the coming budget year, Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves said this week. When Gov. Phil Bryant, a fellow Republican, unveiled his budget last week, he recommended that the 152 local districts should use $73 million, collectively, from their rainy day funds. That

would cover a proposed reduction in state funding for the year that begins July 1. Reeves said he wants to wait a few weeks to see how state tax collections are looking. That might allow legislators to increase the estimate of how much money the state can spend on education and other services in the coming year. “I don’t think we can commit to specific numbers and the utilization of reserve funds or not until we have a better understanding of what the revenues are going to be,”

Reeves said at a forum sponsored by the Capitol press corps and Mississippi State University’s Stennis Institute of Government. Writing a state budget is a long process. Top lawmakers consult with financial experts to determine how much money the state can expect to collect from taxes and fees during a 12-month period. The revenue estimate generally is set more than six months before a fiscal year begins. It’s been the normal process the past several years for legislators to adjust

the estimate, upward or downward, as the start of the fiscal year approaches. That allows them to try to set a budget that more accurately reflects the state’s financial condition. Legislators face a May 1 deadline to adopt a state budget. House Appropriations Committee Chairman Herb Frierson, R-Poplarville, has also said he hopes to delay work on the budget as long as possible in hopes that the revenue estimate can be increased. The local school districts, collectively, held

$615 million on June 30, the end of last fiscal year, Bryant said. The state Department of Education said the figure was $463 million as of Dec. 31, but about $10 million of that can’t be spent because of a range of legal reasons. The reserve funds are used, in part, to help districts pay expenses as local tax collections fluctuate throughout the year. Some districts set aside the money for big projects such as school construction. Reeves also repeated his support for proposals to create charter schools,

which have greater flexibility than most other public schools to try different academic approaches or set different operating hours. Reeves said he believes those applying to run charter schools “need to have a proven track record of success,” and the schools should be governed by an independent commission rather than by state or local boards of education. He also said if a child decides to transfer to a charter school, the per-pupil share of public funding should be sent to that charter school.

Ammunition, shells meant death in nation’s bloodiest war BY BRUCE SMITH Associated Press

CHARLESTON, S.C. — They were the messengers of death in America’s bloodiest war: special rifle ammunition that caused mayhem on Civil War battlegrounds, artillery shells designed to blow ironclads out of the water and early mines and napalm. They are on display in a new exhibit at the Charleston Museum in the city historians say has been bombarded more

than any place in the Western Hemisphere. As part of the sesquicentennial of the war that started in nearby Charleston Harbor and saw the city bombarded by Union shells for 567 days, the museum is mounting the exhibit “Blasted: Assorted Projectiles and Explosives of the Civil War.” More than 100 rarely seen items from museum collections are on display through Sept. 10 chronicling the shot and shells

used in the war in which historians estimate more than 600,000 died. The items include a rare Confederate Quinlivan shot, a solid shot used against ironclads and one of only four thought to be in existence. There’s a two-chambered shell that was an early form of napalm that Union gunners lobbed at the buildings of Charleston. The shells had an explosive charge in one chamber and in the other,

a mixture of coal oil, coal tar and petroleum that would splatter and burn. “This exhibit goes into the nitty-gritty of things that are not normally discussed,” said Grahame Long, curator at the museum founded in 1773 and which is the oldest in the nation. The exhibit has more than 100 items including models of torpedoes — what we today would call mines — that were anchored in the waterways

around Charleston during the Union blockade. If a ship’s hull hit the detonating pin, the torpedo would explode. But they sometimes caused more problems for the Confederates than the Yankees. “The problem is that salt water corroded them and they would break free and float aimlessly with the tide,” threatening Southern vessels on the rivers and harbor, Long said. Torpedoes adapted as land mines were used

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;More like a parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;: Trace looks to improve more BY CARLIE KOLLATH Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal

TUPELO â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Natchez Trace Parkway has been quietly changing the past two years. Motorist and cyclist safety has improved, bathrooms have been upgraded, signage has been changed and exhibits have been overhauled. Parkway Superintendent Cameron â&#x20AC;&#x153;Camâ&#x20AC;? Sholly has been in the driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seat of the movement. He took the job in August 2009 after the position had been open for three years. The 444-mile parkway made headlines that year after two cyclists were killed in collisions with vehicles. Sholly made improved safety one of his top goals. He embraced Tupeloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three-foot passing law for cyclists and enacted a policy for the entire Trace. Two years later, the parkway hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had any more bicycle fatalities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Knock on wood,â&#x20AC;? Sholly said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty hard to get super excited about two years.â&#x20AC;? At the same time, cyclist usage has increased on the Trace, according to information gathered by the parkway.

Parkway vehicle fatalities also dropped 60 percent last year, but he downplayed the numbers, saying a collision on the Trace is easy, considering the traffic. Last year, 13.8 million people used the Trace for hiking, cycling, sightseeing or commuting. Car counts in Tupelo are roughly 7,000 per day. The Jackson area section of the Trace averages 13,000 per day, he said. Law enforcement and safety improvements will continue to be a part of the Trace, but Sholly said he wants to make progress on one of his original goals â&#x20AC;&#x201D; interpretation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now that the parkway is completed, our focus is making the parkway more like a park,â&#x20AC;? he said, during a recent interview at the Traceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s headquarters in Tupelo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve almost set up this unrealistic expectation that there is something to do every mile along the Trace.â&#x20AC;? The emphasis, he said, is to build up and enhance key signature sites, such as the Meriwether Lewis site in Tennessee and Emerald Mound in Natchez. Sholly also said the parkway and the Chickasaw Nation have restart-

HOLDERâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S Business #662-415-9354

ed conversations about building a new heritage center in Tupelo. The talks are very preliminary, he emphasized. He cited the Traceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s partnership with the Natchez Trace Compact for improving perception and visitor experiences. The compact is a marketing group of convention and visitor bureaus along the Trace. The group promotes the communities â&#x20AC;&#x153;behind the trees.â&#x20AC;? The parkway also is in the process of upgrading about 300 signs, at a cost of about $250,000. The new stone and wood signs can be seen at Highway 78 and in front of the parkway headquarters. The project should be largely done by the end of 2013, Sholly said. Bathrooms are also on the to-do list, Sholly said. He suspects Tupelo drivers will be happy to hear that the parkway has plans to upgrade the bathroom facilities at Jeff Busby, which is on the way to Jackson. The project will be done in the next few years, depending on funding, he said. Sholly also is looking at the parkway on a bigger scale, trying to see what the challenges will be in a decade or so.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the biggest threats to the Natchez Trace is degrading scenic viewsheds,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We support economic development, but we have to find the balance of protecting the parkway and its interests.â&#x20AC;? The parkway is in the process of assessing the entire 444-mile park in 10-mile increments. The strategic plan grades each section based on number of trees, power lines and potential for future development, among other things. And as the federal government continues to focus on budgets, Sholly said the parkway continues to look for ways to operate more efficiently. The parkway has drafted goals through 2015. The goals mirror the National Park Serviceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goals, including teaching communities more about their heritage, improving close-to-home recreation and helping students understand the relevance of parks in their lives. While Sholly is the public face for the parkway, he credits the Traceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s partners and its staff for the changes and improvements. Here are some of the highlights from the past two years.

The plant’s name comes from the beautiful purple flowers that seem to attract an endless number of butterflies and bees, especially all sorts of bumblebees. Traditionally, flower colors range from pastel purplish-pinks to deep, dark, vibrant burgundies. Purple coneflowers are members of the genus Echinacea, which is derived from the Greek word for hedgehog. This seems like a fitting description of their seeds, as they are very spiny and prickly.

This will help to encourage repeat blooming through the summer. They reseed themselves readily, so deadheading spent blooms will help prevent your flowerbed looking weedy with too many coneflowers next year. I have had this problem in the past, and you don’t want to have this problem.

You can leave the last blooms and subsequent seed heads of the season as food for some of the birds that stay here during winter. It is easy to propagate purple coneflowers by sowing collected seed. The seed needs about 60 days of cool, moist stratification to germinate. Ideally, sow the seed in small plastic pots and place outside on the back porch around Jan.

Quince-filled chocolate marzipan bonbons can be sprinkled with flake sea salt, candy sprinkles, finely crushed nuts or coconut for a gourmet touch.

Bonbons don’t have to be complicated BY J.M. HIRSCH Associated Press

ttempting to make chocolate bonbons from scratch is enough to test anyone’s


love. First you have to cook up some fussy ¿lling, and get it into — and to hold — just the right shape. Then you have to temper the chocolate, the ultimate of troublesome and tiresome culinary labors. And don’t even get me started on the mess all this makes. But I was convinced there had to be an easier way. So I started playing. The result is this ridiculously simple — yet outrageously delicious — recipe for quince¿lled marzipan bonbons. First, the coating. The chocolate used to cover bonbons must be tempered. If not, it won’t ¿rm up properly and will discolor. The easy way around this is to

use so-called chocolate melts, or candy coating. These chocolatelike disks are sold in a variety of colors at baking supply shops and in the baking aisle of many grocers and most craft stores. These disks melt easily, coat well and require no tempering. You won’t mistake them for an expensive dark chocolate, but they get the job done. For the ¿lling, I was not prepared to make a ganache or other ¿lling. But I wanted something that would be soft, chewy and sweet. Something that could be easily shaped. Something that was almost completely effortless. That something turned out to be marzipan, a paste made from ground almonds and sugar. It’s sold in the baking aisle of just about every grocer and has a soft, putty-like consistency and a deliciously sweet-almondy Àavor. It’s easy to form into balls

and is perfect for coating with chocolate. In fact, it was so easy to work with, I decided I could take my bonbons one step further and ¿ll the marzipan, making the ¿nished treat that much more decadent. If you can play with Play-Doh, you can handle this. The ¿lling really could be any thick jam, or even a piece of dried fruit or a salted nut. But I liked quince paste, an extremely thick jam-like paste often sold near ¿ne cheeses. It has a pleasantly tart-sweet Àavor that works well with the marzipan and chocolate.

Quince-filled chocolate marzipan bonbons I like the classic look of dark chocolate, so I used dark brown chocolate melts. But they are available in numerous colors.

You also can get creative with this. Use one color to coat the bonbons, then melt a second color to drizzle over them for a decorative look. Start to finish: 20 minutes Makes 14 bonbons 7-ounce tube marzipan 2 tablespoons quince paste 4 ounces chocolate melts Line a plate with parchment paper. Cut the tube of marzipan into 14 equal portions. One at a time, form each portion into a round, shallow cup. Fill the cup with about 1»2 teaspoon of the quince paste, then carefully fold the sides of the cup up over the ¿lling and roll in your hands to form a tight ball. Set aside. Place the chocolate melts in a microwave-safe measuring cup. Microwave on high for 1 minute,

stopping every 20 to 30 seconds to stir, or until completely melted. One at a time, use a fork to lower the marzipan balls into the melted chocolate. Move the marzipan around to ensure it is evenly coated. Use the fork to lift it from the chocolate, tapping gently on the side of the cup to remove excess chocolate, then carefully set the bonbon on the prepared plate. If you want to sprinkle a dry coating on the bonbons, such as salt or candy sprinkles, do so immediately. Otherwise, coat the remaining bonbons, then let them dry and harden. The drying can be sped up by placing the plate in the refrigerator for several minutes. If desired, melt a small amount of a second color of candy melts, then drizzle this over the dried bonbons to decorate.

Chocolate mousse is satisfying, but not too rich BY ALISON LADMAN Associated Press

Because this is a chilled dessert, you can make it ahead of time and not worry about things coming out of the oven at the right time when you’re busy trying to impress your sweetheart with dinner.

be told that she didn’t like me because of the color of my skin. Since then, I have been having bad dreams of my mother being disappointed in me because I didn’t fulfill her wish. Please advise me on what I should do. — UNACCEPTED IN NORTH CAROLINA DEAR UNACCEPTED: It takes two people to form a relationship. By reaching out to your grandmother, you did the best you could to fulfill your mother’s wish — which, from your description of your grandmother, was an unfair burden to try to place on you. There’s no reason for you to court another round of rejection and, for your sake, I’m advising you not to. It may help to write a letter to your mother, explaining to her what happened when you reached out to your grandmother, then read it at her grave. But please, stop blaming yourself for your grandmother’s inability to love. DEAR ABBY: While going through pictures on my girlfriend’s computer, I discovered that she had posed nude for a draw-

ing by her artist daughter. For some reason, I am really bothered by her posing nude and doing it for her daughter. How can I bring this up, which will let her know that I was snooping on her computer? — SAW WAY TOO MUCH IN KENTUCKY DEAR SAW WAY TOO MUCH: Why would you be “really bothered” by a mother posing nude for her artist daughter? Most mothers and daughters have seen each other in states of undress and there is nothing shocking about it. My advice is to first figure out what you think is “wrong” with it, then admit that you snooped so you can talk it out. After that, she can determine if she wants to continue being involved with a man who is as nosy and prudish as you appear to be. 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 or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Horoscopes by Holiday BY HOLIDAY MATHIS Yesterday Saturn, the stern taskmaster of the zodiac, threw it into reverse and started backtracking through the judicious sign of Libra. Whatever is on your life list, a process begins to make sure it belongs there. Each item will be put to the test and thoroughly examined. It’s a slow process, but we have until June 25 to complete it. ARIES (March 21-April 19). Perfection is impossible, though it makes you feel good to work toward your ideal scenario anyhow. One small step will make a world of difference. It beats focusing on everything that’s wrong! TAURUS (April 20May 20). Games are favored. Instead of competing on a subconscious level, bring it out in the open. Consider setting up a kind of contest, complete with real rules and rewards. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll enjoy the bit of pretention here and there that spices up today’s social interactions. It adds just the element of ridiculousness that will have you remember-

ing this time and talking about it for years to come. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You may be feeling shyer than usual, which produces an attractive glow of mystery around you. You’ll love how someone draws you out of your shell and makes you feel special and valued. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). A friend will figure strongly into the day’s action. There is always a bit of chaos around this person — sometimes intriguingly so and other times annoyingly so. You’ll have to decide how deeply you should get involved. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Kidding is a form of love. You’ll find a way to make someone you care about blush, giggle or get a little bit flustered. This sweet impression will last a lifetime. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). One significant difference between people and zoo animals is that people often get to design their own cages. You’ll have choices. Choose the one that gives you the most space — and possibly an escape hatch. SCORPIO (Oct. 24Nov. 21). You like seeing how others live, and you’ll enjoy today’s peek into a

lifestyle that’s similar to yours, with a few obvious differences. Reserve judgment, and learn all you can. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There are those who want you when they need something and until then are quite scarce. You know the type, and you’re careful not to present yourself in such a manner to anyone else. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). Enthusiasm and determination are traits that will carry you far in any endeavor. In order to maintain these qualities, you must be continually inspired. It may not occur naturally, so arrange for it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18). You have friends and well-wishers, but even the best of them will sometimes fall down on the job. Take steps to further develop a spiritual belief and practice that supports you in good times and bad. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Stay aware. There are those who will give you gifts that are more beneficial to them than they are to you. You’ll feel good around the ones who really do appreciate you. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 8). Satisfaction is close at hand. You’ll feel free to express your true feelings, and you’ll use your talents for a high

purpose. The shoes you are asked to fill in March may not be big exactly, but they sure are fancy. In June, spontaneous travel brings good fortune. A secret admirer becomes known in August. Pisces and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 43, 1, 22, 36 and 14. COUNTDOWN TO VDAY: The Valentines will be flying next Tuesday, and if you haven’t already figured out how you’re going to express your heart, you still have enough time to come up with something good. If you’re a fire sign — Aries, Leo and Sagittarius — you’ll need the extra days to nail this one, as your passionate heart deserves an equally impressive announcement. CELEBRITY PROFILES: Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, the planet of revolution, secret power and rebellion. That’s what makes the iconic Aquarian actor James Dean such a fitting poster child for the sign. Though his life and career were cut short, this “Rebel Without a Cause” was the embodiment of his generation, striking out to find a purpose of his own.
