■1015 Main St. and 1011 Main St. — Public hearings set for Feb. 21. These properties at the far east end of Main Street, where it ends at the railroad track, have had issues with overgrowth. One of the lots has had some junk cars removed. Neighbors have complained

about cars parked in the grassy median at 1011 Main, where some curb damage has occurred, said Ratliff. ■1523 Robertson Drive — Aldermen adjudicated this property for cleanup after no response from the owner. The vacant commercial property,

formerly home to a Piggly Wiggly and more recently a mattress business, needs outside cleanup and removal of an old vehicle. ■402 Penn St. — With no response from the owners, the Please see SITES | 2A

Entertainment contest promoting the upcoming movie “The Vow.� The E! contest is for engaged couples to write and submit the vows they plan to say at their wedding. Peter and his fiancee found out about the contest two weeks ago while watching TV after dinner at her Philadelphia, Pa., apartment. A trailer for the new movie “The Vow� came on. At the end it mentioned the “Say Your Vows� contest from E! — and it was the last day to enter. “Megan told me she wanted

to give it a try,� Peter recalled. “So, she went online and started writing vows to me.� Before she submitted the vows, Megan let her husbandto-be give them a read. “I am normally a pretty emotionless guy, but as I read her vows for the first time, I was hit with a flood of feelings. I knew that every word came straight from her heart,� Peter said. A few days later the couple was studying in Barnes & Noble when Megan got an email from E! Her vows had passed through several rounds of judging and the couple had been selected to be one of five finalists in the competition. “At first, we couldn’t believe it.

SELMER, Tenn. — New York proved to be the Giants of the National Football League. A McNairy County congregation was just as good when it came to packing the pews on Super Bowl Sunday. First Baptist Church of Selmer celebrated its Souper Bowl I victory hours before the New York team hoisted the

While the Giant Nation relished in another title on Monday, church members were busy loading over 2,000 cans of food to be delivered to Loaves and Fishes. “An exciting day,” said worship minister Bryan Essary. “It was fun to watch our church family come together to help feed the hungry in our Please see SOUPER | 3A

departure from previous Energy Expos, McGrath said. “In the past we concentrated on each customer’s particular account,” he said. The 2012 event will focus on making ACE members aware of the available ways to increase energy efficiency, including new windows, insulation and energy efficient appliances, with the goal of empowering ACE members to take control of their own energy usage. The Energy Expo will also work to enhance member awareness of the geographical and economic factors that play a role in the cost of electricity, McGrath explained. Discussion at the Expo will focus on smart meters, which McGrath

called “a hot topic.” With the recent switch to smart meters, many ACE members have questions regard what the new smart meters are — and how the power company plans to use them. “We’re also going to show our customers where ACE competes with the rest of the nation as far as rates,” McGrath said. “And we’re going to show them why we believe electricity to be a powerful bargain compared with other commodities over the last 60 years.” A panel discussion with ACE members and TVAcertified contractors and vendors will cover a range of energy-saving topics, with ACE customers sharing their insights on what they gained from having a certified energy audit in their homes.

Booneville passes $2M bond issue BY BRANT SAPPINGTON bsappington@dailycorinthian. com

Booneville aldermen have voted to move ahead with a $2 million bond issue for repairs and improvements to the city’s waste water treatment plant and sewer system. City Engineer David Moore explained the next step is to begin the legal

process of advertising and issuing the bonds. The work will include renovations and upgrades to equipment at the waste water treatment plant along with work to repair pump stations and rehabilitate and repair old and damaged sewer lines throughout the city. The board voted to accept the low bid of

$888,850 from Delta Constructors of Jackson for the initial round of repairs and improvements to the wastewater treatment plant and associated equipment. Eubank Construction of Booneville submitted the next lowest bid of $897,000, followed by Hemphill Construction of Florence at $931,850 and Tidwell

& Associates of Booneville at $938,000. Moore said the remaining money in the bond issue will pay for the purchase and installation of a new clarifier pump at the water treatment plant which will leave approximately $1 million available for testing and repair of sewer lines throughout the city.

Box-checking Obama stays in liberal cocoon BY MICHAEL BARONE It’s unusual when a reporter sympathetic to a politician writes a story that makes his subject look bad. But Ryan Lizza of The New Yorker has now done this twice. The first time was in an article last April on Obama’s foreign policy in which he quoted a “top aide” saying that the president was “leading from behind” on Libya. Not what most Americans expect their presidents to do. Now, in an article based on leaked White House memos marked up by Obama, Lizza has done it again. Contrarian liberal blogger Mickey Kaus sums it up: “The president’s decision-making method — at least as described in this piece — seems to consist of mainly checking boxes on memos his aides have written for him.” A $60 billion cut in the stimulus package? “OK.” Use the reconciliation process to pass the health care bill? A checkmark in the box labeled “yes.” Include medical malpractice reform in the health care bill? The man who as an Illinois legislator often voted “present” writes, “We should explore it.” According to Lizza, Obama prefers getting information and making decisions by staying up late and reading memos rather than meeting with people — a temperament that’s a liability because face time with the president is one of his major sources of political capital. Lizza’s reporting undercuts the stated thesis of his article: that Obama sought to bring bipartisan governance to Washington, but was foiled by Republicans’ partisan intransigence. Evidence that Obama ever seriously considered Republican approaches is minimal in the New Yorker article. The alternatives Lizza describes Obama as considering are for even more spending and government control, such as a much bigger stimulus package. He mentions just in passing that Obama “had decided to pursue health care reform” as well as the stimulus package — a choice that inevitably made bipartisanship harder to achieve. At one point Lizza does quote Obama writing on a memo, “Have we looked at any of the other GOP recommendations (e.g., Paul Ryan’s) to see if they make any sense?” Another president might have looked at Ryan’s proposals himself or might even have called him on the phone. George W. Bush, in contrast, worked with Democrats — and sometimes even talked with them — on his education plan, his tax cuts and the Iraq War resolution. He even tried, unsuccessfully, to negotiate with them on Social Security. In Chicago, Obama seems to live in a cocoon in which Republicans are largely absent, offscreen actors that no one pays any attention to. His personal interactions are limited to his liberal Democratic staff —and to the rich liberals he meets at his frequent fundraising events. Two decisions in particular seem tilted toward rich liberals. One was the disapproval of the Keystone XL pipeline from Canada, even after it survived two environmental impact statements. Obama says he wants more jobs and to reduce American dependence on oil from unfriendly foreign sources. The pipeline would do both, and is endorsed by labor unions. But Robert Redford doesn’t like Canadian tar sands oil. Case closed. The other astonishing decision was the decree requiring Catholic hospitals and charities’ health insurance policies to include coverage for abortion and birth control. Here Obama was spitting in the eyes of millions of Americans and threatening the existence of charitable programs that help millions of people of all faiths. Catholic bishops responded predictably by requiring priests to read letters opposing the policy. Who’s on the other side? The designer-clad ladies Obama encounters at every fundraiser. They want to impose their views on abortion on everyone else. Obama fundraising seems to be lagging behind its $1 billion goal, and Democrats fear Republicans are closing the fundraising gap. So Obama seems to be concentrating on meeting the demands of rich liberals he spends so much time with. Michael Barone, senior political analyst for The Washington Examiner,, is a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, a Fox News Channel contributor and a co-author of The Almanac of American Politics.

Now that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has denied any U.S. involvement, Mossad is the prime suspect behind the killing of the nuclear scientists. And U.S. writer Mark Perry, in Foreign Policy, alleges that Mossad agents posed as CIA in London to recruit Jundallah. If this is true, this would be a false flag operation to provoke Iran into lashing out at America. Apparently, Iran did not take the bait. Why have the Iranians not followed through on their threat to close the Strait of Hormuz and begun to dial it back? War with the United States would be a disaster. Though the Tehran regime might survive — as Saddam Hussein’s survived Desert Storm — Iran’s navy, most of its armor, anti-aircraft and anti-ship defenses, and its strategic missile force would be destroyed, as would much of the country’s infrastructure. Iran would be set back years. Who, then, wants war with Iran? All those who would like to see exactly that happen to Iran. And who are they? The Netanyahu government and its echo chamber in

U.S. politics and media, the neoconservatives, members of Congress, Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum. And as the Obama administration is the major force in U.S. politics opposed to war with Iran, its defeat in November would increase, to near certitude, the probability of a U.S. war with Iran in 2013. Yet if the Pentagon and U.S. intelligence community are correct, why should we go to war with Iran? Answer: Iran represents “an existential threat” to Israel. But Israel has 200 atomic bombs and three ways to deliver them, while Iran has never built, tested or weaponized a nuclear device. Who is the existential threat to whom here? And though a U.S. war on Iran would be calamitous for Iran, it would be no cakewalk for Americans, who could become terrorist targets for years in the Gulf, Afghanistan, Baghdad’s Green Zone, Lebanon and even here in the USA. Year 2012 is thus shaping up as a war-or-peace election, with Republicans the war party and Democrats the peace-and-diplomacy party. And as the months pass between now and November, this will become clear to the nation. Patrick J. Buchanan is the author of “Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?”

to try to force Catholic institutions to pay for contraceptives and morning-after abortifacients for their employees. See? There’s nothing we can’t do — together. What Chrysler and GM desperately needed in their extremity was to go through Chapter 11 reorganization to pare down wages and benefits, shed uneconomical dealerships and ditch unnecessary brands. When the government got its hooks in them, it politicized this process and threw some $80 billion at the companies. Since we’ll never get an estimated $23 billion back, we all must be “pulling together” behind Detroit still. Amid all the patriotic piety, Eastwood neglects to mention that Chrysler is now 58.5 percent owned by Fiat, an Italian company. The heart-tugging images of Turin, Italy, apparently were left on the cuttingroom floor. Walking near the end of his tunnel, Eastwood assures us of our hoped-for national comeback: “Detroit’s showing us it can be done.

boost from resurgent auto sales. Otherwise, it remains a byword for urban apocalypse. More than anything, the city is a standing warning of the perils of social disorder and unaffordable, dysfunctional government. The entire tone of the Eastwood ad is martial. We must resist “discord” and “come together,” we have to take a “punch” and “win.” Understandably, Obama politicos David Axelrod and Dan Pfeiffer immediately tweeted their approval. The ad echoes President Barack Obama’s rhetoric of militarylike national unity from his State of the Union address. This message is profoundly at odds with the messy competition and selfinterested individual effort necessarily attendant to a true free-market economy. It is good that Chrysler and GM are now off lifesupport, but they took a lot of money we’ll never recover. A simple apology would be nice. Surely, Clint Eastwood could be hired to deliver an impressively sincere-sounding one. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. He can be reached via e-mail:

State State high court hears arguments on pardons BY EMILY WAGSTER PETTUS Associated Press

JACKSON — Attorneys for a group of former inmates told the Mississippi Supreme Court on Thursday that former Gov. Haley Barbour’s pardons of them are valid. The Supreme Court was holding a lengthy hearing on whether the pardons were legal. Barbour pardoned nearly 200 people, including four convicted murderers and a robber who worked as trusties at the Governor’s Mansion, in his final days in office. His actions outraged victims’ families. Attorney Thomas Fortner, who represents four of the former trusties, said past cases suggest that pardons are not reviewable by the courts. “If you have a valid pardon signed by the governor ... it is not open to judicial review,” Fortner told the court. Chief Justice Bill Waller Jr. opened the hearing, saying no decision would be announced Thursday. He did not say when the court might rule. He also admonished attorneys. “I don’t want any political sound bites. I don’t want any jury arguments. No grandstanding. No sniping. Everybody understand?” Waller said. Attorney General Jim Hood is challenging the pardons. The Democrat says if ads weren’t run in

daily papers every day for 30 days, or weekly newspapers once a week for five weeks, the pardons aren’t valid under the state constitution. “Publication is a condition ... you can’t do it (grant a pardon) until the publication requirement is met,” Hood said. Section 124 of the Mississippi Constitution says that in felony cases no pardon “shall be granted until the applicant therefor shall have published for thirty days, in some newspaper in the county where the crime was committed, and in the case there be no newspaper published in said county, then in an adjoining county ...” Fortner said the sole judge of whether the publication was proper is the governor. “The governor as the chief executive is granted the power to pardon and is the judge of the propriety of the publication,” he said. “The constitution does not give the power to anybody to review that.” Charles Griffin, an attorney for Barbour, also said the pardons are not reviewable. “This case is not about Haley Barbour. This case is not about General Hood. And this case is not about the individuals who have received pardons. This case is about the separation of powers under the Mississippi Constitution,” Griffin said.

Soldier dies abroad of medical condition JACKSON — The military says a soldier from Mississippi has died from a medical condition unrelated to combat in Afghanistan. The Pentagon said Sgt. 1st Class Billy A. Sutton died Feb. 7 in Uruzgan province. Mississippi National Guard spokesman Tim Powell says the 42-year-old soldier lived in Mooreville. Powell was member of the 288th Engineer Sapper Company based in Houston, Miss. He was married with a wife and a stepson. He enlisted Sept. 5, 2001.

Starkville, MSU pursue transit grant STARKVILLE — The city of Starkville has joined Mississippi State University in seeking a public transit grant from the state. The Starkville Daily News reports that the Mississippi Department of Transportation grant would provide half the funding necessary to have three shuttle routes throughout the city and 80 percent of funds needed to purchase shuttle shelters and buses. The program would be named the Starkville/MSU Area

Rapid Transit. The deadline to submit the proposal is March 4. The three routes would be a city and campus connecting route, a city circular route and a Starkville Sportsplex route. MSU Parking Services Director Mike Harris says if the grant is approved, the bus routes would likely begin operating in late 2013. Each bus would cost approximately $150,000. “We’ve had a transit group that has met over the past year with representatives from the campus and the community as to what areas we need to service. This has been a collaborative effort. It’s not something we’ve done overnight. We saw the need for this with continued enrollment growth on campus and growth in the community,” Harris said. The routes would run from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday. “It’s a great way to connect the city and campus, and it’s a green solution to traffic and congestion. What we’re trying to do is help with the overall quality of life for our community and campus,” he said.

Fire destroys closed paper mill GLOSTER — A fire has destroyed the former Georgia Pacific paper mill in Gloster.

The Natchez Democrat reports that fire units from several counties and Louisiana responded to Wednesday night’s fire. Amite County Fire Coordinator Sam Walsh says authorities were notified of the fire about 7:45 p.m. The plant was engulfed in flames when firefighters arrive. There were no injuries because workers had already left. The mill closed in 2002, leaving 300 people without jobs. It reopened in 2005 and closed again in 2009, this time for good. Workers have been cutting up and removing scrap metal and cleaning up the property. Walsh says it appeared the fire started in the main administrative building and main plant building. He says the fire is under investigation.

Bond set for suspects in church burglaries BYRAM — Bond has been set for two men charged with multiple church burglaries. WLBT TV reports Kewane Latiker and Amos Simmons, both of Jackson, made their initial appearances in Byram on Wednesday, where their bond was set at $65,000. Latiker and Simmons are charged with two burglaries in Byram, two in Jackson and five in Hinds County.

They also face separate charges in Hinds County. Investigators say the pair has admitted to taking electronics and musical equipment from the churches, most of which has been recovered by police. Police say the items will be returned to the churches later this week. It couldn’t be determined if the suspects have attorneys.

Doctor admits failing to pay child support GULFPORT. — A former Gulf Coast doctor has pleaded guilty to failing to pay thousands of dollars in child support while avoiding prosecution by living outside the United States. Federal prosecutors tell The Sun Herald 61-year-old Dr. Donald Lee Roberts Jr. is being held pending sentencing in U.S. District Court. The ear, nose and throat specialist, who had worked at a Gulfport clinic, was a fugitive for more than five years. He was taken into custody Dec. 5 when he tried to enter Mexico. Roberts pleaded guilty Monday. He will be sentenced on April 17. Records show a Harrison County judge in 1999 had ordered Roberts to pay $2,400 a month for his two children. A federal indictment returned in May 2006 said he had not paid it since 2000.

States, banks reach foreclosure settlement BY DEREK KRAVITZ Associated Press

WASHINGTON — U.S. states reached a landmark $25 billion deal Thursday with the nation’s biggest mortgage lenders over foreclosure abuses that occurred after the housing bubble burst. The deal requires five of the largest banks to reduce loans for about 1 million households at risk of foreclosure. The lenders will also send checks of $2,000 to about 750,000 Americans who were improperly foreclosed upon. The banks will have three years to fulfill the terms of the deal. It’s the biggest settlement involving a single industry since a 1998 multistate tobacco deal. Federal and state officials announced at a news conference that 49 states had joined the settlement. Oklahoma announced a separate deal with the five banks. The settlement ends a painful chapter that emerged from the financial crisis, when home values sank and millions edged toward foreclosure. Many companies processed foreclosures without verifying documents. Some employees signed papers they hadn’t read or used fake signatures to speed foreclosures — an action known as robosigning.

“This does not resolve everything. We will be aggressive about going after claims elsewhere.” Shaun Donovan U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Under the deal, the states said they won’t pursue civil charges related to these types of abuses. Homeowners can still sue lenders in civil court on their own, and federal and state authorities can pursue criminal charges. “There were many small wrongs that were done here,” said U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan. “This does not resolve everything. We will be aggressive about going after claims elsewhere.” Reducing loan principal will help some homeowners who are current on their payments but are “underwater,” meaning they owe more than their homes are worth. But consumer advocates and housing activists said the deal is flawed because it covers only a fraction of at-risk homeowners. Critics note that the settlement will apply only to privately held mortgages issued from 2008 through 2011. Banks own about half of all U.S. mortgages — roughly 30 million loans.

Those owned by mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are not covered by the deal. “The deal announced today is too small,” said Pico National Network, a faithbased group that is active on housing issues. “It falls far short of providing real justice for homeowners and American families.” Economists also cited the size of the deal: Some said it was hardly enough to have much impact on the troubled housing market. The settlement will be overseen by Joseph A. Smith Jr., North Carolina’s banking commissioner. Lenders that violate the deal could face $1 million penalties per violation and up to $5 million for repeat violators. About $10 billion of the settlement total will be used to reduce mortgage payments for underwater homeowners. Paul Diggle, an economist at Capital Economics, said that’s a “drop in the ocean,” considering that 11 million borrowers are underwater “to the tune of $700 billion.”

Dwindling time, rising tension make Iran top fear BY ANNE GEARAN AND JULIE PACE Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The prospect of conflict with Iran has eclipsed Afghanistan as the key national security issue with headspinning speed. After years of bad blood and an international impasse over Iran’s disputed nuclear program, why does the threat of war seem so suddenly upon us? The short answer is that Iran has used the years of deadlock over whether it was pursuing a bomb to get within roughly 12 months of being able to build one. Iran claims its nuclear program is not aimed at building a bomb, but it has refused to drop suspect elements of the program. Time is running short for Iran to back down without a fight. Time is also running short for either the United States or Israel to mount a preemptive military strike on Iran’s nuclear sites, something that seemed far-fetched until fairly re-

cently. It is still unlikely, and for the U.S. represents the last worst option to stop an Iranian bomb. The United States has a “very good estimate” of when Iran could produce a weapon, President Barack Obama said this week. He said that while he believes the standoff with Iran over its nuclear program can still be resolved through diplomacy, the U.S. has done extensive planning on a range of options. “We are prepared to exercise these options should they arise,” Obama said during an interview with NBC. He said Israel has not made a decision about whether to launch its own strike. Diplomacy and economic coercion are the main focus for the U.S. and its allies, and the preferred option. But the increasingly strong warnings from Obama and other leaders reflect a global consensus that Iran is closer than ever to joining the nuclear club. In November, the Inter-

national Atomic Energy Agency issued a scathing assessment of the Iranian nuclear program, calling it disturbing and possibly dangerous. The IAEA, a U.N. body, said it had “serious concerns regarding possible military dimensions” of a program Iran claims is not intended to build a weapon. Close U.S. ally Israel is driving much of the burst of international attention now focused on the likelihood of an Iranian bomb and what to do about it. “When a country that refers to you as a ‘cancerous tumor’ is inching, however slowly, toward a nuclear weapons capability, it’s understandably difficult to relax and keep quiet,” said Karim Sadjadpour, an Iran expert at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu frequently draws parallels between modern-day Iran and Nazi Germany on the eve of the Holocaust. Last week, Defense Minister Ehud Barak said there is

a growing global understanding that military action may be necessary. For Obama, the threat that the United States might use military force must ring true to Iranian leaders while not sounding alarmist to Americans or jittery oil markets. He has been very cautious, which is why his recent, blunter words are notable. With the clock in mind, the Obama administration is moving much faster than expected to apply the heaviest economic penalties yet on Iran and the oil trade it relies on. This week came a surprise announcement of new sanctions on Iran’s central bank, a key to the regime’s oil profits. Previous rounds of penalties have not changed Iran’s course, but the U.S. and Europe, which just approved a first-ever oil embargo, argue that they finally have Iran’s attention. The new oil-focused sanctions are intended to cut the revenue Iran’s rulers can collect from

the country’s oil business without roiling oil markets. While Obama has until late June to make a final decision on how to implement even stronger financial sanctions, a person advising the administration on the penalties said an announcement probably would come well ahead of that deadline. The adviser spoke on condition of anonymity because the White House plan is not final. Among the factors pushing up a decision: the possibility of a unilateral Israeli strike and the desire to avoid disrupting oil markets in the summer, when gasoline prices are usually already higher.

With Republican presidential candidates questioning Obama’s toughness on Iran, the White House also has a political interest in appearing to take a proactive approach to enforce the sanctions, rather than simply responding to a congressional deadline, the adviser said. The threat of military action is also used to strengthen the diplomacy. Countries like China, a major buyer of Iranian oil, don’t like sanctions but go along because opposing them may increase the likelihood of military action that would spike prices for the oil they buy, Sadjadpour said.

The Commerce Department is expected to report today that the gap between U.S. imports and exports widened in December. One likely reason is the weakening European economy, which has cut into demand for U.S. goods and services in the region. In November, U.S. exports to Europe fell 6 percent. Overall U.S. exports were down nearly 1 percent. Another possible factor: The rising price of oil.

Ebbing consumer confidence?

Arch Coal earnings

Consumers have been growing more pessimistic about the economy despite signs of improvement like the falling unemployment rate. We’ll find out today how they’re feeling this month, when the first February reading of the Thomson Reuters/ University of Michigan consumer sentiment index is released. Economists are expecting a slight drop in the index. There’ll be a final reading in two weeks.

Arch Coal’s fourth-quarter earnings are expected to match what the company earned a year ago. Investors want to see if the company’s shipments fell as they did the second and third quarters. And they’ll want to hear the company’s forecast. Some electrical utilities are switching to natural gas from coal because the price of gas has fallen to 10-year lows and is expected to remain in a slump.

Mississippi’s Jarvis Summers shoots over Mississippi State defenders during the first half of their game in Starkville, Miss., on Thursday.

Bulldogs avenge earlier setback Associated Press

STARKVILLE — Mississippi’s hope of sweeping the season series from rival Mississippi State for the first time since 1998 didn’t last long. Buried under an avalanche of dunks off alley-oop passes and hampered by an inconsistent offense, the Rebels lost 70-60 to the 20th-ranked Bulldogs on Thursday night. “We never got consecutive baskets in a manner that would put pressure on them,” Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy said. “They put us on the mat right off the jump.”

Mississippi State’s Arnett Moultrie scored 18 points and grabbed nine rebounds while Dee Bost had a career-high 13 assists as the Bulldogs won for the fourth time in five games. Moultrie made 9 of 14 shots from the field in another efficient performance that’s typified his breakout season. “I don’t know how I was so open,” Moultrie said. “I was surprising myself sometimes.” Bost is Mississippi State’s career assists leader, and found plenty of room to work against the Rebels. Ole Miss has leaned heavily on good

defense, rebounding and hustle this season because of a hit-and-miss offense, but couldn’t figure out how to keep Mississippi State from getting easy baskets. The Bost-Moultrie connection was good for four dunks, including three alley-oops. “When you see us and you see them, they’re bigger,” Kennedy said. “When the bigger team is quicker to the ball you’re in trouble.” Bost had eight assists in the first half as the Bulldogs built a 40-27 lead and the 6-foot2 senior’s 13 assists were the most by an SEC player this season. His most spectacular

pass came near the end of the first half, where he let loose a perfectly timed heave from midcourt that found Moultrie streaking toward the rim. Mississippi State (19-5, 6-3 Southeastern Conference) scored the first eight points and never trailed. Renardo Sidney added 14 points and Rodney Hood scored 10 for the Bulldogs. Kennedy joked that he “didn’t want to seem like Bost’s agent,” but called him the best point guard in the SEC. Mississippi State coach Rick Stansbury agreed that Please see NCAA | 9A

NBA All-Star runs end for KG, Duncan Associated Press

NEW YORK — Dirk Nowitzki’s streak survives, despite one of the worst seasons of his career. Two other old stars are no longer All-Stars. Nowitzki was chosen Thursday to his 11th straight All-Star game, with coaches overlooking the lowest scoring average since his second NBA season in favor of his long-term excellence. “It was a tough road back

to full health for me, but I am honored that the coaches thought enough of me to make me an All-Star,” Nowitzki said in a statement. “It has been a privilege to represent the Mavericks organization over the last decade and I look forward to doing it again in Orlando.” Paul Pierce will join him despite his own slow start caused by a foot injury and was picked for the 10th time. But Kevin Garnett wasn’t

chosen after 14 consecutive selections, and Tim Duncan was left out after 13 in a row. Other All-Star regulars such as Ray Allen and Amare Stoudemire will be home, giving way to five first-timers among the reserves: Portland’s LaMarcus Aldridge, Marc Gasol of Memphis, Andre Iguodala of Philadelphia, Indiana’s Roy Hibbert, and Chicago’s Luol Deng. Also headed to the Feb. 26 game are NBA assists leader

Steve Nash of Phoenix, Tony Parker of San Antonio, Russell Westbrook of Oklahoma City, Kevin Love of Minnesota, Chris Bosh of Miami, Atlanta’s Joe Johnson and Deron Williams of New Jersey. Already voted to start by fans in the Eastern Conference were Orlando’s Dwight Howard, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade of Miami, Please see NBA | 9A

Vanderbilt upsets in-state rival No. 11 Tennessee Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Tiffany Clarke scored 23 points, and the Vanderbilt Commodores upset No. 11 Tennessee 93-79 on Thursday night for their fifth straight win overall and a very rare victory over their in-state rival. The Commodores (19-5, 7-4 Southeastern Confer-

ence) got their first win against Tennessee since Jan. 11, 2009, by scoring their most points ever against their rival. For coach Melanie Balcomb, it was just her second win in 23 games against Tennessee since coming to Vanderbilt. Tennessee (17-7, 8-3) had

won 23 of the last 24 in this rivalry and seven straight. The Lady Vols, who fell out of the top 10 on Monday, now have lost two of three. Christina Foggie scored 22 points for Vanderbilt, and Stephanie Holzer added 19. Jasmine Lister had her first double-double with 19 points and a career-high 13

assists. Glory Johnson led Tennessee with 19 points before fouling out with 5:59 left. Meighan Simmons had a team-high 20 points, and Shekinna Stricklen 17. The Commodores outworked, outshot and simply outplayed Tennessee from start to finish.

Bost had a nearly flawless floor game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He got us in transition, scored in transition when we needed him to and was patient when we needed him to be,â&#x20AC;? Stansbury said. The result was a Mississippi State win that was never particularly close, and the Bulldogs continue to look like a team thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talented enough to go deep into the NCAA tournament. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This time of year,

Stansbury said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tough to play at that level for 30 games, but at this time of year, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about seven games.â&#x20AC;? Reginald Buckner had 15 points and nine rebounds for Ole Miss (149, 4-5), which has lost three of four. Jarvis Summers scored 12 points and Jelan Kendrick added 11 for the Rebels. Ole Miss won the first meeting between the teams 75-68 on Jan. 18,

mostly thanks to Buckner, who had a careerhigh 19 points and 15 rebounds. The 6-8 junior forward had another good performance in the second go-round, but the rest of the Rebels couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t keep pace and appeared overmatched from the outset in front of a raucous crowd of 10,364.

Mississippi Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 13-game home winning streak is tied for the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second-longest since Humphrey Coliseum opened in 1975.

Gingrich hopes high road, new funds can save him BY CHARLES BABINGTON Associated Press

CLEVELAND — Newt Gingrich, suddenly in danger of losing his perch as Mitt Romney’s strongest GOP challenger, is finetuning his presidential campaign to place more emphasis on raising money, guarding his home turf and trying to avoid nasty quarrels with the frontrunner. Rick Santorum’s stunning success in this week’s elections in Colorado, Minnesota and Missouri has fueled his claim that he, not Gingrich, is best qualified to rally conservatives who feel Romney is too moderate and unreliable. Gingrich, the former House speaker, again faces a dilemma that has dogged him for much of the election. Should he show his feistier, meaner side at the risk of turning off voters who want pragmatic solutions more than expressions of anger? Or should he use a tamer, high-minded tone and risk losing economically anxious, resentful Republicans such as those who handed him his only victory, in South Carolina? His aide R.C. Hammond said Gingrich favors the second option, at least for now. “We need to go hard at demonstrating we are the one campaign of leadership,” Hammond said in an interview in Cleveland, where Gingrich spoke Wednesday without mentioning Santorum, Romney or his own poor showing in Tuesday’s voting. Gingrich wants to avoid the harsh personal exchanges with Romney that have sometimes dominated the Republican campaign, Hammond said, and he wants to show he’s a better choice than Santo-

rum by letting voters compare their records. Gingrich plans few public appearances in the coming week, and none in highly competitive states. He will speak at a major convention of conservatives in Washington on Friday. He plans to spend Monday through Wednesday in California, mixing a few public events with eight fundraisers, Hammond said. On Feb. 17 and 18, Gingrich will campaign in Georgia, the state he represented in Congress for 20 years ending in 1998. He needs to win Georgia, Tennessee and Oklahoma in the March 6 “Super Tuesday” primary, and either win Ohio or come close. Six other states, including some small ones and Romney’s home state of Massachusetts, are voting that day. Gingrich has vowed to stay positive before, only to abruptly attack Romney, the “elite media” and other targets, with mixed results. Gingrich’s criticisms of Romney’s Bain Capital record and Cayman Island investments fell flat with many GOP audiences, and he dropped them. But Gingrich’s acid rebukes of reporters in two South Carolina debates, plus a strong response to Romney’s attack ads, helped him revive his campaign after a steep drop in Iowa. Many GOP insiders are dubious that the tempestuous Gingrich can stay positive for long. And some question whether he can win by doing so, given Romney’s big advantages in money and organization. Whatever his longterm intentions are, Gingrich went out of his way Wednesday to accentuate the positive at the Jergens metal manufacturing plant in Cleveland.

10 states get education waiver BY KIMBERLY HEFLING AND BEN FELLER Associated Press

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama on Thursday will free 10 states from the strict and sweeping requirements of the No Child Left Behind education law in exchange for promises to improve the way schools teach and evaluate students. The move is a tacit acknowledgement that the law’s main goal, getting all students up to par in reading and math by 2014, is not within reach. The first 10 states to receive the waivers are Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, Oklahoma and Tennessee, the White House said. The only state that applied for the flexibility and did not get it, New Mexico, is working with the administration to get approval. Obama said he was acting because Congress had failed to update the law despite widespread agreement it needs to be fixed. “If we’re serious about helping our children reach their potential, the best ideas aren’t going to come from Washington alone,” Obama said in a statement, released before the official announcement later Thursday. “Our job is to harness those ideas, and to hold states and schools accountable for making them work.” A total of 28 other states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico have signaled that they, too, plan to seek waivers — a sign of just how vast the law’s burdens have become as the big deadline nears. No Child Left Behind requires all students to be proficient in reading and

math by 2014. Obama’s action strips away that fundamental requirement for those approved for flexibility, provided they offer a viable plan instead. Under the deal, the states must show they will prepare children for college and careers, set new targets for improving achievement among all students, develop meaningful teacher and principal evaluation systems, reward the best performing schools and focus help on the ones doing the worst. In September, Obama called President George W. Bush’s most hyped domestic accomplishment an admirable but flawed effort that hurt students instead of helping them. Republicans have charged that by granting waivers, Obama was overreaching his authority. The executive action by Obama is one of his most prominent in an ongoing campaign to act on his own where Congress is rebuffing him. No Child Left Behind was primarily designed to help the nation’s poor and minority children and was passed a decade ago with widespread bipartisan support. It has been up for renewal since 2007. But lawmakers have been stymied for years by competing priorities, disagreements over how much of a federal role there should be in schools and, in the recent Congress, partisan gridlock. For all the cheers that states may have about the changes, the move also reflects the sobering reality that the United States is not close to the law’s original goal: getting children to grade level in reading and math. Critics today say the 2014 deadline was unrealistic, the law is too rigid and led to teaching to the test, and too many schools feel they are unfairly labeled as “failures.” Under No Child Left Behind, schools that don’t meet requirements for two

“This notion that Congress is sort of an impediment to be bypassed, I find very, very troubling in many, many ways.” Rep. John Kline House Republican years or longer face increasingly tough consequences, including busing children to higher-performing schools, offering tutoring and replacing staff. As the deadline approaches, more schools are failing to meet requirements under the law, with nearly half not doing so last year, according to the Center on Education Policy. Center officials said that’s because some states today have harder tests or have high numbers of immigrant and low-income children, but it’s also because the law requires states to raise the bar each year for how many children must pass the test. In states granted a waiver, students will still be tested annually. But starting this fall, schools in those states will no longer face the same prescriptive actions spelled out under No Child Left Behind. A school’s performance will also probably be labeled differently. The pressure will probably still be on the lowestperforming schools in states granted a waiver, but mediocre schools that aren’t failing will probably see the most changes because they will feel less pressure and have more flexibility in how they spend federal dollars, said Michael Petrilli, vice president of the Thomas B. Fordham Institute, an education think tank. While the president’s action marks a change in education policy in America, the reach is limited. The populous states of Pennsylvania, Texas and California are among those that have not said they will seek a waiver, although they could still do so later.

On Tuesday, Education Secretary Arne Duncan said states without a waiver will be held to the standards of No Child Left Behind because “it’s the law of the land.” Some conservatives viewed Obama’s plan not as giving more flexibility to states, but as imposing his vision on them. Rep. John Kline, R-Minn., who chairs the House Education and the Workforce Committee, said Thursday that, “This notion that Congress is sort of an impediment to be bypassed, I find very, very troubling in many, many ways.” Duncan maintained this week that the administration “desperately” wants Congress to fix the law. In an election year in a divided Congress, that appears unlikely. Kline, speaking at an event at the conservative American Enterprise Institute, said that in the House there was some bipartisan agreement on how to fix No Child Left Behind, but in many areas there was disagreement. He said later in the day he would release Republican-written legislation that seeks to restore states’ authority in education. California Rep. George Miller, the committee’s senior Democrat, has said such partisanship “means the end” to No Child Left Behind reform in this Congress. Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, who chairs the Senate committee on education, has said he believes it “would be difficult to find a path forward” without a bipartisan bill in the House.

porch: Wall loves his work continued from 2B

Small and large conference rooms are also available for groups or organizations needing a convenient and comfortable meeting place. The law enforcement academy trains policemen and firemen from Mississippi, as well as several neighboring states including Alabama, Tennessee and Arkansas. The school has a distance learning technology room for courses on the Internet. Students can also take classes online from home. Once their courses are completed, they come to the Corinth building for testing. Northeast offers classes at the Corinth Center, at New Albany, and at the main Northeast Mississippi Community College campus in Booneville. The most modern technology is in use in the “Dr. Tommy Sweat Memorial Library” at the Center. Magnolia Regional Health Center contributed $250,000 for the library. In addition to the materials present in the local library, laptop computers are available for checkout on-site where individuals may go on-line to connect with Northeast/Booneville library or most any other library nationwide. Wall’s next dream is to completely equip each classroom with iPad technology at an approximate cost of $10,000. After the spry 78-yearold’s living the education administration life for 51 years, Nelson says. “If I’ve been successful, it’s because I’ve been able to adapt to change.” That’s probably true because anyone who’s lived more than 30 years knows change is inevitable and often hard to accept. Nothing has changed more quickly than technology and up-

to-date technology is definitely basic to adequate education programs. Wall absolutely loves his work. “This is my hobby,” he says with a smile. “I like to hunt and I like to fish, but the education thing is what I love. It’s all about helping people, and I’ve loved every minute of these 51 years. I hate to see Friday come, and I can’t wait for Monday.” Readers might be interested to know Nelson Wall’s “schooling” began at Fields School, a two-room, eighth-grade facility in the Rock Hill community only a couple miles from where he grew up. He has transitioned from a small school with no indoor plumbing — he brown-bagged it and went to an outdoor toilet — to the most modern hightech classrooms where students can sit at a table and, through an on-line computer and screen, ask questions to a teacher in another office or classroom miles away. Wall thought his parents saw amazing progress as they witnessed the development of modern cars and the first airplanes, but today he has an outstanding story to tell as well. . . . So now we’ve shared just the tip of the iceberg, so to speak, about the opportunities offered by Northeast at Corinth. Be sure to watch for next week’s column, which will highlight the director’s growing-up years and those who mentored him as he entered his career in education. Nelson was my neighbor in those days and I think his personal story is worth telling, also. (Lora Ann Huff is a Wenasoga resident and special columnist for the Daily Corinthian.

days will cease and we will enter the grave and our time on earth will be no more. Prayer: God I praise you for another day of life. You have blessed me abundantly and I pray that I can serve you through anything that I do. Amen. (Corinth native Gary Andrews is a religion columnist for the Daily Corinthian. Now retired, the Yazoo City resident spent 35 years in the newspaper and magazine business. A deacon and Sunday School teacher in his church, many of Andrews’ family are residents in Alcorn County.)

Husband driving dangerously DEAR ABBY: There is an ongoing issue between my husband and me. It’s his disregard for my personal safety. Our large city is known for its heavy, fast traffic and impatient drivers. “Jon” is a good driver. He likes to drive in the left (passing) lane on the highway or tollway, usually about five miles above the posted speed limit. This is considered too slow for many drivers, who become impatient and aggressive having to be behind us in the fast lane. They flash their headlights and tailgate us, trying to get him to move over into the right lane so they can pass, but Jon refuses to yield. If they start to pass us on the right, he will speed up and race them so they can’t get ahead of him. He says he’s “teaching them a lesson.” I have told my husband repeatedly that these games are dangerous and

they scare me. Not only could we get into an accident, but we could Abigail get into an Van Buren ugly confrontation Dear Abby or worse. I am terrified in these situations and he knows it, but he continues. I try to drive as often as possible, but I can’t see as well at night as I used to, so Jon drives at night or when we’re going long distances. With the price of gas and considering the inconvenience and inefficiency, it doesn’t make sense to go in separate cars. Do you have any suggestions? — ON A COLLISION COURSE IN HOUSTON DEAR ON A COLLISION COURSE: Jon should be told that impeding the flow of traffic is a very dangerous practice. His childish be-

havior could incite road rage, and it is everyone’s responsibility to minimize instances in which road rage can occur. Contact the Department of Public Safety to get a copy of the Texas Drivers Handbook. That way you can show Jon in black and white that his behavior is not only wrong but dangerous. While some husbands are not receptive to a wife’s comments about their driving, most will listen to what a state trooper has to say about good driving practices versus bad ones. Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that. And one more word of advice: Continue being the driver as often as possible. Your lives could depend on it. DEAR ABBY: I was discussing with my 26-year-old daughter how parents punish their kids, when suddenly she told me that she hated

that I would make her write “lines” when she was growing up. She mentioned that one day I made her do it when her friend was there to play with her. I felt really bad about this and wonder why she is bringing this up now. — WONDERING DOWN SOUTH DEAR WONDERING: It came up now because punishment was the topic of conversation, and she flashed back on how humiliating it was to have been punished in front of a friend. Clearly it made an impact -- and it would be interesting to know if the infraction was repeated after that. (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 MATHIS The conjunction of Venus and Uranus can still be felt. It’s as though these planets are conspiring to, as the French say, “epater la bourgeoisie.” Loose translation: “shock the middle classes.” You’ll feel the transit wherever eyebrows are raised, automatic door locks are depressed and subjects are changed to something as innocuous as the weather. ARIES (March 21-April 19). You realize that relationships often are built over encounters that are few and far between. In order for the relationship to gain momentum, someone has to take initiative. That someone is you. TAURUS (April 20May 20). Your many successes will be the subject of inquiry. People want to know how you did what you did. Additionally, some of them would like to know whether you can help them achieve similar results. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Mood swings are not always a negative occurrence. Today’s shifts in feeling will be the cause of spontaneous excitement. In the future, you’ll look back on today in wonderment. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Due to the uninspiring nature of mundane chores, it’s often difficult to get started, though satisfying to finish. Handle things

quickly, and it soon becomes second nature to keep the orderly groove going. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If you don’t have the buy-in and support of your family, it will be very difficult to be successful in today’s big tasks. So communicate your desire clearly, and try to get your people on board. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There will be a financial reversal in your household. The one who usually wants to save will spend, and the one who usually spends will save. Everything balances out in the end. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re a little obsessed right now with an object of desire. When you really want something, there’s no point in putting it off. Move forward so you can check this one off your list and start thinking of other things. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Even though you are a strong individual, right now you are also quite impressionable. Use this to your advantage. Surround yourself with the kind of people you want to be more like. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). Something is not working in your daily routine, and this may be causing you to feel tired or unwell. This is an easy fix once you pinpoint the exact problem. Greater health and vitality will soon be yours. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). You’ll work on

your mindset and make a conscious effort to think like a winner. Your mental take on things will have an effect on how you look, the way you carry yourself and how convincing you are to others. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18). Follow-through is a strength of yours. You’ll commit fully to whatever action you take. And because you are feeling impulsive now, you might not think it through first. Luckily, your instincts won’t steer you wrong. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A former sweetie may romanticize about your past together, or an old pal might want to gab with you about the good old days. Gently nudge everyone into the present because there’s a lot of good in what’s going on now. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 10). It’s your turn to have fun. Your inter-

nal search engine scans the world at large for the data that will contribute to your happiness. Professional achievement will be good for your finances in March. Humor will be a cornerstone of your attitude. April’s “setbacks” are a blessing, as they guide you to more fruitful efforts. Taurus and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 25, 49, 30 and 14. COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: With the sun in Aquarius and the moon in Libra, these intellectual air signs could find themselves locked in a discussion that will last indefinitely. Feeding on each other’s ability to sail the breadth of ideas, their combined creativity will spin into infinity. This is not merely a meeting of minds. These two should take breaks from talking to enjoy the experience of sharing the same space.
