Aldermen ponder pants policy proposal Minister seeks ordinance to stop the sag BY JEBB JOHNSTON

An associate pastor told the Board of Aldermen that the city should require saggers to pull up their pants. John Patterson, associate minister of New Covenant Baptist Church, asked the board on Tuesday to consider adding a

provision dealing with sagging pants to the public indecency ordinance. “We’re trying to gain respect — let our young folks know they need to respect themselves more instead of going around in the grocery store and different public places with their clothes all off their butt,” he said. Patterson believes it would help the city and not be a hindrance to law enforcement. He said children as young as 7 and 8 years old are wearing sagging pants. Alderman Chip Wood said he

believes it would be difficult to enforce a sagging pants law. Patterson replied, “You’ve got the manpower to go in the neighborhood and sit on corners and just watch folks ... You can’t stop for a minute and say, ‘Pull your pants up?’” The board took no action on the request. Alderman J.C. Hill said the police chief requested time to review the proposal. The Tupelo City Council recently adopted such an ordinance. Patterson said he is also on the NAACP prison committee, which will be asking the Leg-

islature to consider a state law prohibiting sagging pants. In other business: ■ The board received updates on four properties that have been targeted for cleanup. Aldermen gave a continuance to April 3 at 310 Tate St., which has been purchased by Taylor Heating & Air with plans for demolition of the building. The board also gave a continuance to April 3 at 1106 Ross St., where cleanup is about one-third complete, and at 1811 Droke, where a contractor has been hired for demolition and cleanup but

has not been able to do the job because of wet conditions. The ongoing Rhoades property cleanup on U.S. 72 is continued until May 1. ■ The board authorized the mayor to sign documents for PPM to conduct a phase one environmental assessment and asbestos testing at the old Wurlitzer property for $5,500. ■ Aldermen adopted the final versions of the ordinance establishing the entertainment district and the ordinance establishing a property tax break for revitalization in certain areas.

Hope Center needs Money BY STEVE BEAVERS

The Hope Dream Center Mission of Corinth needs some help to turn its aspirations into reality. The Dream Center must come up with around $21,000 to meet the city building code requiring a sprinkler system for the 36,000 square-foot facility at 1223 Tate St. “It is a struggle right now,” said Center President Annie Saffore. “We know there are good people out there that want to help ... some just don’t know what we are doing.” What the Hope Dream Center Mission wants to do is provide a shelter for the homeless and troubled women along with their children in the old Tate Baptist Church building. U.S Sen. Roger Wicker and Corinth Mayor Tommy Irwin were part of the dedication ceremony in mid-January. “Our plans are to provide a place where the homeless and troubled women know they are cared about,” said Saffore. “You don’t have to be a bad person to be homeless. Unfortunate things can happen and put anyone in that situation.” Should it receive the variance request, the HDCCM is set to renovate the building into rooms that can house over 100 people. Plans call for the center to have 50 rooms available. Donations are also needed to help with bathrooms, furniture, beds, linens, along with clothing and shoes. Those eligible for the shelter must come in and fill out an application good for 28 days. If a longer stay is necessary, another

Woman and children will receive meals, a warm bed and lodging with clean bathrooms. They will be counseled to determine their needs as well as how to avoid repeating their circumstances. “Clients will be trained to be

able to live on their on,” said Saffore. “If they need clothes, we will provide them and also have retired teachers come in to work with them if they need help getting a GED.” Clients will be required to help in the building’s upkeep. They will be expected to help with

the cooking in which they will be taught how to prepare balanced meals. “This will not be a place of leisure,” said the president of the center. “It will be a place for rebuilding lives.” Those interested in making Please see HOPE | 2

Disney trip effort reaches target BY STEVE BEAVERS

Police warn of email scams BY BOBBY J. SMITH

The numerous fundraisers and donations have paid off for a group of special needs children. The youngsters are going to Disney World after organizers met the $25,000 goal for the trip scheduled for late May. “The Lord has blessed this trip,” said trip organizer Havis Hurley. Money will continue to be collected to help with other expenses during the trek. A fundraiser is set for 5-8 p.m. tonight at Pizza Inn. The special needs group will receive 15 percent of what is taken in along with all tips. Modern Woodmen of America will match what is collected up to $1,000 during the three hours. Two $50 cash prizes will be drawn at the end of the night. Winners need not be present to win. “The money raised will be used to get each kid five shirts for each day we are down there,” said

The Mississippi House of Representatives voted Tuesday on two liquor bills, narrowly defeating one and approving another that would allow Senatobia to have a vote on legalizing alcohol sales. House Bill 928, which would have allowed any municipality to vote to legalize alcohol sales, barely failed in a 60-59 vote. Local Reps. Nick Bain, Tracy Arnold and Bubba Carpenter all cast “no” votes on the bill, which was authored by District 59 Rep. Kevin McGee (R). The bill called for an election if 20 percent of qualified voters present a petition and would limit the availability of liquor to by-the-drink sales in restaurants and hotels. The Corinth Board of Aldermen recently passed a resolution seeking legislative approval for a cityonly vote on the sale of liquor, but the local legislative delegation has not supported the idea. Another city could be moving in that direction. Also on Tuesday, the House approved Bill 506, which seeks to allow Senatobia to vote on liquor sales, in a 76-43 vote. Attempts to return Alcorn County to a wet county have failed. Liquor was sold in Corinth for 21 years until 1989, when Alcorn County voters ended liquor sales and, in a city election, Corinth voters said “yes” to beer sales, resulting in a swap of liquor for beer. County referendums on the sale of liquor in 1993 and 2005 failed to pass.

The public should be mindful of ongoing telephone and internet scams — especially requests for money or personal information. One such recent fraudulent venture is an email that many local residents have received from someone claiming to be the Internal Revenue Service. In its subject line the email claims that the recipient’s tax return has been rejected. Under an official-looking IRS graphic, the email includes a link to site to “download the rejection file and resubmit your appeal.” Corinth Police Department Chief David Lancaster said it is not a general practice of the IRS to send out this kind of email. “The key to recognizing this is when someone asks you for something and you didn’t contact them first yourself,” Lancaster explained. “If they

ask for personal info — and you didn’t contact them first — you shouldn’t give it.” He said the Corinth Police have been dealing many telephone and internet scams lately. One of the most common techniques the scam-artists are using is to tell people they’ve won a large sum of money, but to receive it they must first send a smaller sum to cover shipping or other costs. “Any time you have to send money to receive money it’s a scam,” said Lancaster. In another variation, a person is told he has won a lottery or a sweepstakes which the person has never entered. “If you didn’t buy a lottery ticket or enter the sweepstakes, you didn’t win,” the police chief said. “We’ve got to keep in mind that very few things in life are free, and people are not going to send you money if you haven’t done anything for them.”

On this day in history 150 years ago March 8 — The Battle of Pea Ridge, also known as Elk Horn Tavern, began in northwest Arkansas. Van Dorn’s attack from the rear was discovered and countered and a series of charges failed to break the Union line.

vouchers for families. “That will help the kids eat each day and enjoy the Disney experience more,” said the event organizer. As of Tuesday afternoon, donations totaled $25,800. The Kiwanis Club gave $2,000 for the trip earlier Tuesday. “I run into people walking down the street and they give me money for the trip,” added Hurley. “It has been amazing.” A package was put together for the trip to see Mickey Mouse. Cost is

around $450 per child with the deal including transportation, tickets and accommodations for five days. Sixty-two kids and parents will be making the trip May 26 through June 1. Hurley, who has made over four dozen trips to the park, came up the idea for the magical ride while working with 18 of the youngsters. He started putting the plan into action in September of last year. Three more fundraisers remain for the trip. The group will be working at Subway on Highway 72

later in the month, at Sweet Peppers Deli, and is set to help with the Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast in early May. An account — Disney World Fundraiser — has been set up at Trustmark Bank for those that would like to donate. Donations can also be sent to: Havis Hurley, 1306 Orchard Lane, Corinth, MS. 38834.

Common Core: Helping parents understand what is about to come BY ADRIENNE SIMMONS For the Daily Corinthian

It seems that every other year educators have a “new way of doing things.” If it is difficult for teachers to grasp all the changes, imagine what it is like for parents. As a mother, myself, I worry about what my own child will be expected to know, and will it be effectively taught to him. Each state currently has their own set of standards, those items we are expected to teach at each grade level. However, when you look at the “grades” of all states sideby-side not everything seems to line up. In the past it has seemed that Mississippi schools were on the lower end of academic excellence, but is that really

the case? This past fall Lee County and Tupelo Public educators had the experience to listen to Bill Daggett, the chief executive of the International Center for Leadership in Education. He helped us to understand that we are not as far down the line as we originally may have thought. He said, “you’ve got to prepare the kids for the world they’re going to live in.” While most students grow up and continue living in the same vicinity they grew up, you do have those few who will move off. Whether it be to another state within the U.S., or to another country, we must prepare our students for the jobs that are not even thought of yet! Common Core will help to do just that! Common Core standards will be beneficial for our students because

for brethren to dwell together in unity” (Ps 133:1)! The early church was able to practice unity. “And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common” (Acts 4:32). How tragic it is that the religious world has never been more divided than it is today. Many seem to think that division is necessary so one can choose what they believe. Some believe that religious unity is just not possible. However, the Bible teaches that division is sinful and wrong. Paul taught that God is not the author of confusion. “For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints” (1 Cor 14:33). A lack of respect for the Bible may cause division. The writers of

they are set up to help prepare students with the knowledge and skills they will need in order to succeed in college and careers. Common Core focuses on fewer standards each year, thus allowing time to focus on a deeper depth of understanding of the topics being covered. The standards are much clearer than what we have dealt with in the past. Common Core also focuses on putting the standards into kid-friendly language so students, themselves, will understand what is expected. We live in an increasingly mobile society. Common Core will help to ensure that families with children transferring to new schools will not have to adjust to new learning expectations. Parents can feel assured that their children will have access to the same high-quality education other students receive throughout our country. The standards will be the same across all states who are adopting Common Core. This will make transitions easier for students, and for their parents. There is a sense of more clarity and understanding of what is expected of student learning. There is a lot of talk about Common Core and a lot of information out there, but be leery of everything you read or hear.

the Bible were moved to reveal what they wrote. “For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost” (2 Pet 1:21). Jesus said...”Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God” (Matt 22:29). Paul revealed all the counsel of God. “For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the cousel of God” (Acts 20:37). Are we willing to follow only the Bible to bring about religious unity?

‘The Artist’ proves silence is golden

Deaths Holley Lee

Holley Nash Lee, 66, died of a brain aneurysm on March 6 at Methodist University Hospital in Memphis, Tenn. A lifelong Corinthian, she was the daughter of the late Martha Helen and A.Y. Nash. She received her master’s degree in elementary education from Memphis State University. Upon returning to Corinth, she served on the board of trustees of the First United Methodist Church, was an enthusiastic Girl Scout troop leader, and was an active volunteer with the American Cancer Society. Holley Lee’s calling in life was to befriend everyone she met. She was loving, wise, funny, strong, fiercely loyal, and yet tender. She loved unconditionally. She was never too busy to listen; her compassion and empathy for others allowed all to feel at ease in her presence. In addition to Spencer, her devoted husband of almost 49 years, survivors include her children, Ginger and husband Ben Sharpe and Allan and wife Kathryn Lee; her grandchildren, Spencer, Lizzie, Atlee and Benjamin; her sister, Sally and husband Dick Molpus; her aunt, Francis Dalton; nieces, nephews and cousins; and a host of others were touched by her generous and kind spirit. Funeral service will be held at 3:30 p.m. today at First United Methodist Church in Corinth with the Rev. Dr. Prentiss Gordon and Dr. Glenn Wiygul officiating. Burial will follow in the Henry Cemetery. Family will receive friends in the fellowship hall of the First Methodist Church from 2 to 3:15 p.m. “To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.” — Thomas Campbell Donations may be made to: Monroe Carell, Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbuilt, 2525 West End Ave, Suite 450, Nashville, TN 37203, or Mississippi Chapter for Juvenile Diabetes, 1640 Lelia Drive, Suite 130, Jackson, MS 39216.

The Artist, PG-13, *****,Jean Dujardin, Berenice Bejo, John Goodman, James Cromwell, Uggie; The Weinstein Co; Director Michel Hazanavicius; length — 100 minutes Return to those days of yesteryear when films were black and white and without sound. Although “The Artist” has very little speaking in it, does have music and just the right amount of resonance at just the right times. The film is definitely worth seeing for the acting, creativity, originality, superb performances and vision. The orchestras in front of the stage and the acting taking place on stage are in sync with one another. I did not have the opportunity to see “The Artist” before the Academy Awards. After having won Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Director along with two other awards, the film made it to this part of the world. The last time a silent film earned the top prize was when the World

Communication takes place in many forms and the actors and actresses in “The Artist” portray this with extraordinary talent. The movie begins in 1927 just as George Valentin (Jean Dujardin) is at the top of his game in silent movies and stage acts. The audience becomes aware of his ego that all actors tend to have. After all, actors must have great confidence in order to perform before an audience or the camera. “The Artist” introduces a young inspiring actress, Peppy Miller (Berenice Bejo).

The Rev. Peter Alexander Sr. was born into slavery in Nashville, Tenn., in 1801 and died at his home near Tishomingo at the age of 103. As a slave in 1840, he was sold away from his wife and two children to the Alexander family near Bishop, Ala. He was a handyman and worked as a type of overseer on the plantation. Because he was alert, useful and trustworthy, he was taught to read and write by members of the household; this was unheard of during this time due to existing slave law. At one point during his Alabama enslavement, he was for sale once again but he determined not to leave his second wife as he was

chancery judges currently make $104,000 a year. The bill would increase their pay in four annual steps to $136,000 a year by 2016. Pay would also increase for district attorneys, appellate judges and county court judges. Salaries of

The Rev. Alexander built a legacy that continues to thrive. The Carter’s Branch and Petertown communities of Tishomingo County are divided by a stream called Carter’s Branch at the eastern born of Tishomingo County and the Alabama state line; however, these two communities are linked in their history.

Other Views Is two percent enough to dismiss voter ID law? The U.S. Justice Department’s opposition to a voter ID law in South Carolina does not bode well for Mississippi getting approval for its version either. The Justice Department is using its authority under the Voting Rights Act to block voter ID in states with a history of discrimination against minority voters. The statistics that the feds cite now to show discriminatory impact, though, are much less convincing than they would have been during the age of literacy tests and poll taxes. For instance, in South Carolina, according to the Justice Department’s research, 10 percent of non-white registered voters do not currently have a driver’s license or other photo ID from that state’s Department of Motor Vehicles. That compares to 8 percent for white registered voters. Is 2 percentage points really enough difference to claim voter ID is unconstitutionally discriminatory? That’s a stretch. — Enterprise-Journal, McComb

Pilot program may help some school dropouts A plan to enroll high school dropouts in college will work for some, and it’s worth trying as a pilot program. But it isn’t going to be a cure for what’s causing most kids to quit school in Mississippi. The reasons for dropouts are varied, but the most common one is the inability to read proficiently. And that comes back to early childhood education — effective pre-kindergarten, not just babysitters — where state leaders looking to improve education aren’t putting enough emphasis. Hinds Community College and the Rankin County School District will partner next school year in a plan allowing recent dropouts and those in danger of dropping out a chance to earn their high school diplomas at the community college while at the same time working on college undergraduate courses. A bill pending in the Legislature would expand the concept to a pilot program in five school districts before expanding to all school districts in 2013-14. It’s a component of Gov. Phil Bryant’s “Mississippi Works” agenda. Give Bryant and the Republicans who now control the Legislature credit for innovation in trying to improve educational achievement in Mississippi. This includes strengthening the state’s charter school law, which is in the works. The dual-enrollment plan with high schools and community colleges will help a minority of dropouts who leave school for non-academic reasons. But if they can’t read well — and many dropouts can’t — we question how they can pass college work, unless they are given remedial courses, which shouldn’t be the role of colleges. Better to make sure kids can read before they reach the third grade. That is easier said than done, given the number of children coming from underprivileged homes where the parents themselves don’t read well. — The Greenwood Commonwealth

and Catholic employers of their freedom to opt out of providing health insurance coverage for contraception, abortifacients and sterilizations for employees, if they have religious objections. The position of the Catholic Church on this issue is neither new nor is it unknown. It was reaffirmed in 1968 in the famous encyclical “Humanae Vitae” of Pope Paul VI. Artificial birth control is unnatural and immoral. Any government that orders Catholic institutions and employers to provide contraceptives, “morning after” pills or sterilizations for employees has crossed the line between church and state to trample upon the First Amendment religious freedom it was established to protect. Sandra Fluke, a 30-yearold student at Georgetown Law School, has emerged as the heroine of the Democratic establishment, being phoned by President Obama after her excoriation by Rush Limbaugh. And what is Fluke’s demand? That Georgetown University pay for and provide birth control for herself and all coeds and law school students. Fluke attends one of the most prestigious law schools in America. She is among a cognitive elite whose future is secure. Why should she not pay for her own birth control, even if she has to borrow money?

This is not an abandoned woman on welfare. Why should other students or the university be forced to foot the bill for Fluke’s exercise of her freedom to pursue her personal lifestyle? Georgetown University and its law school presumably remain Jesuit institutions. For Fluke to demand contraceptives or birth control pills for herself and her fellow students is to demand that Georgetown enable and subsidize behavior the the Jesuit community teaches to be immoral. Undeniably this episode, where the Democratic Party, traditional political home of America’s Catholics, is now demanding that Catholic institutions and employers be forced to subsidize what their church teaches to be immoral conduct, tells us much about the sea change that has taken place and is taking place across America. The America of Barack Obama that is emerging appears to be a country where civil disobedience may yet become a duty of traditional Christians and Catholics. The historian Arthur Schlesinger Sr. once called anti-Catholicism “the deepest-held bias in the history of the American people.” In Obama’s Washington, it is becoming so again. Patrick J. Buchanan is the author of “Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?”

They objected to the administration’s dithering on the Keystone Pipeline, so they included a requirement that President Obama make a decision in an unrelated piece of must-pass legislation. He escaped this trap — by rejecting the pipeline. This is the tale of congressional frustration when Republicans have been united. There’s no guarantee that they will remain so if their numbers diminish and if their standing with the public remains low. A cataract of tax increases set for 2013 will give the president invaluable leverage in budget negotiations. As ever, he will have outsized influence in setting the agenda. With one speech, he can take income inequality from an animating issue in Zuccotti Park to an animating issue in the national debate. He will presumably replace the liberal Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who will be 80 in 2013, with another liberal who will serve for another 30 years.

cades. There is no presidential election that is not said to be the most important in our lifetime. It was even said in 1996, when Bill Clinton won a decisive but not particularly consequential victory over Bob Dole. But Clinton had been chastened by the Republican sweep in 1994, and in a period of peace and prosperity, the country could afford to debate the meaning of “is.” Now, we are truly at an inflection point, between the Barack Obama and Paul Ryan approaches to government, between consolidation of the past three years of historic government expansion and rollback. The downbeat musings on the right are driven by the dreary primary season and the belief that the party’s nominee will be weak. But so is the president, who leads likely nominee Mitt Romney only narrowly. For Republicans, the general election is still winnable, and there is no substitute for victory.

State Legislators mull agency advertising bill The Associated Press

JACKSON — A bill pending in the Mississippi Senate seeks to pull the plug on all state agencies' ability to advertise. “Millions and millions of taxpayers' dollars are going for a whole bunch of bogus programs that are advertised all over the state and we're going to put a stop to it,” Sen. Merle Flowers, R-Southaven, told WLBT-TV. Flowers, the lead author of the bill, said much of that money spent is in radio. The bill which would prevent state agencies from using radio and television advertising to promote agency programs. The bill does not include newspapers and there would be some exceptions like public service announcements

required by the federal government. Legal notices and employment opportunities also would be excluded. If state agencies must use state dollars to advertise, then a bidding process would be required. “If you are going to have advertising we want it to be very competitive,” Flowers said. “We want to make sure that you have a bidding process and we have open contracts for the whole world to see.” The board within in the state Department of Finance and Administration would look over proposed ads to determine if they meet rules and regulations for advertising The bill does also does not apply to community colleges and universities. “We don't want to stop that but we just want to J7NÂ<H;;Ã?DL;IJ?D= tqxÃ;:K97J?EDÃI7L?D=IÃFB7D <?N;:Ã?D9EC; I H;J?H;C;DJÃFB7DD?D=

make sure that we get the best bang for the buck on it,” said Sen. Terry Brown, president protem and a co-author of the bill. Brown, R-Columbus, said it's simply a way to save money and become more transparent. “We're responsible for

the taxpayers' dollars and it's our responsibility to make sure they're spent efficiently and in the right areas and this is just part of that,” Brown said Brown said on many occasions the state has thrown money into advertising public notices

where federal dollars should have been used instead. “Anything that we can save a dollar on in this state, it has to be beneficial,” Brown said. The bill was sent to the full Senate by the new Accountability, Effi-

ciency and Transparency Committee. “If the state is going to be spending money, we need to know how they're spending it,” Flowers said. “The public has a right to require their government to get the best deal possible.”

House GOP struggles to make cuts in budget BY ANDREW TAYLOR Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Conservatives dominating the House are pushing to scrap last year's budget pact with President Barack Obama and impose new cuts on domestic agencies in an election-year drive to show voters they're serious about shrinking the government. The move is popular with freshman lawmakers elected on a tea party wave in 2010. But veteran lawmakers warn it will produce gridlock later, when Congress has to follow up the springtime debate on a broad budget blueprint with actual spending bills reflecting the new cuts, and get them enacted into law. Driving the discussion is frustration among many Republicans that they haven't done enough to cut spending or curb deficits that still exceed $1 trillion a year. The upcoming budget debate is maybe the last, best forum to demonstrate their bona fides to voters — especially core conservatives they're counting on to turn out in large numbers to maintain the GOP's majority in the House. “There is a lot of pentup demand from our members to show the American people a way forward to fiscal sanity.

We can't continue to have budget deficits of over a trillion dollars a year,” House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said Tuesday. “This is not sustainable. So our members want to show the American people a way forward, and they will.” At issue is the arcane way Congress does its annual budget. First comes a debate on a sweeping but nonbinding document that's called a budget resolution. It sets the broad parameters for follow-up legislation on spending and taxes. Last summer's hardfought legislation to lift the government's borrowing limit also set 10 years' worth of new, stringent “caps” on the Cabinet agency budgets set each year by Congress. Lawmakers followed it up in December with a $1 trillion-plus omnibus 2012 spending package that essentially froze dayto-day agency operating budgets. In the eyes of Democrats, the White House and many Republicans, a deal's a deal — the $1.047 trillion agency spending cap for fiscal 2013 should govern the upcoming round of spending bills. “I think that the $1.047 trillion number that was the crux of the bill last year is the right number,” said House Appropria-

tions Committee Chairman Harold Rogers, R-Ky. “It needs to be a reasonable number that will allow us to pass these bills, which by all accounts will require some bipartisanship.” A large contingent of Republicans, however, never supported the underlying debt and budget deal. And they won't support a GOP budget plan that affirms it. “The cap is a ceiling, not a floor. I think there are a lot of people in my conference that would not vote for it at $1.047 trillion just because of the frustration of that,” said Rep. James Lankford, R-Okla. “We have got to address more aggressively the debt issue.” Added Rep. Mick Mulvaney, R-S.C., “We're just trying to argue that we're really serious about spending less money. A key wrinkle this year is that because the so-called deficit supercommittee failed to agree on at least $1.2 trillion in spending cuts over the coming decade, a round of automatic across-the-board spending cuts will kick in next January. Much of the reasoning behind lowering the caps is that the automatic cuts — called a sequester — would effectively reduce the $1.047 trillion cap by almost $100 billion anyway.

Romney says he’s ready to fight to nomination BY LAURIE KELLMAN Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney said Wednesday he's “prepared to fight all the way” to become the Republican presidential nominee after padding his delegate count on Super Tuesday. Supporters of his chief rival, Rick Santorum, tried to elbow Newt Gingrich out of the race in an effort to give conservatives a clear alternative to the GOP front-runner. Gingrich, who won only his home state of Georgia in Tuesday's ballot-

ing across 10 states, said Wednesday he's pressing ahead and will “wait and see how the race goes.” He headed for Alabama and Mississippi, hoping to pick up more southern delegates next week. Super Tuesday gave Romney a narrow victory in pivotal Ohio and wins in five other states, while Santorum laid claim to three states. Rep. Ron Paul won none. The split decision refreshed questions about Romney's appeal to conservatives, and guaranteed more convul-

sion ahead as Republicans struggle to settle on a candidate to take on President Barack Obama. Leaders of a super political action committee supporting Santorum said it's time for Gingrich to step aside and let Santorum go head-to-head with Romney. If Gingrich remains in the race “it's only a hindrance to a conservative alternative to Romney,” said Stuart Roy, an adviser to the Red, White and Blue Fund. “And Romney simply won't be the conserva-

tive alternative to Obama.” The PAC has spent about $3 million on TV ads helping Santorum's White House bid, and Roy predicted that Wednesday would be “a good day for fundraising.” Santorum, who was campaigning Wednesday in Kansas and Mississippi, pointed to his wins in the West, the Midwest and the South as proof he can win across this country. Romney, in an appearance on CNBC's “Squawk Box,” insisted he's “getting the kind of support across

the party that I need to become the nominee.” “We've got the time and the resources and a plan to get all the delegates, and we think that will get done before the convention,” Romney said. His campaign announced that Romney raised $11.5 million in February, the secondbest month ever for the campaign. Still, that's not substantially ahead of Santorum, who raised $9 million in February. Gingrich, in a morning appearance on Bill Bennett's “Morning in America” radio program, said there's no evidence Santorum could defeat Romney even in a one-on-one competition. “If I thought he was a slam dunk to beat Romney and to beat Obama, I would really consider getting out,” Gingrich said. “I don't.” Gingrich spokesman R.C. Hammond said Alabama and Mississippi, which vote on March 13, are must-win states for the former House speaker, although he stopped short of saying Gingrich would get out of the race if he lost there. To that end, Gingrich dropped plans to campaign Friday in Kan-

sas, which holds caucuses Saturday, to focus on the southern states. House Republican Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia argued that Romney's claim to the nomination is inevitable, adding that Santorum and Gingrich “have not demonstrated an ability to do what needs to be done.” But in a morning interview on CBS “This Morning,” Cantor acknowledged there is still plenty of ongoing debate in “a robust party with many ideas.” Obama chose the busiest day of the GOP race to speak from the presidential bully pulpit, where he dismissed the Republicans' almost constant criticism of his administration. “Those folks don't have a lot of responsibilities,” Obama said in a White House news conference. “They're not commander in chief.” In addition to claiming Ohio, Romney scored a home-state win in Massachusetts, and triumphs in Idaho, Vermont, Alaska, and Virginia. Santorum laid claim to Oklahoma, Tennessee and North Dakota.

Gingrich to receive Secret Service detail BY KEN THOMAS Associated Press

Paid for by Keith Conaway & Friends

WASHINGTON — Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich was set to receive Secret Service protection starting Wednesday, two people with knowledge of the security plan confirmed to The Associated Press. They spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive security matters. The former House speaker is the third GOP hopeful to get a Secret Service detail. Mitt Romney has had Secret Service protection since Feb. 1, and Rick Santorum received Secret Service protection last week. Ron Paul is the only Republican candidate

without a Secret Service detail. Gingrich requested Secret Service protection last month. He was scheduled to campaign Wednesday in Alabama following his win in neighboring Georgia, Gingrich's home state. Alabama's primary is March 13. Secret Service protection is given to each major party's presidential nominee but can be provided earlier if the Homeland Security Department approves a campaign's request. Federal law allows candidates to seek protection if they meet a series of standards, including public prominence as measured by polls and fundraising.

Applications for unemployment aid have fallen steadily since the early fall and are down nearly 15 percent since October.

Williams-Sonoma’s 4Q

Mortgage rates have been below a near-record low of 4 percent for more than three months. Cheaper rates have spurred modest improvements in the battered housing market. The average rate on a 30-year home loan fell last week to 3.9 percent. That’s just ahead of the 3.87 percent average rate recorded a couple of weeks earlier, which was the lowest rate since long-term mortgages began in the 1950s. Will the latest weekly survey by Freddie Mac show another dip?

Retailer Williams-Sonoma today reports results for its fiscal fourth quarter, a period that coincided with the holiday shopping season. The company, which sells high-end home goods, has benefited from affluent consumers' willingness to spend on luxury goods as the economy and the stock market have improved. It is expected to report a higher profit for its latest quarter.

Colts release Peyton Manning BY MICHAEL MAROT The Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts ended their successful partnership with a tearful goodbye Wednesday, when team owner Jim Irsay released the star quarterback rather than pay a whopping $28 million bonus while there are lingering questions about his health. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We all know that nothing lasts forever,â&#x20AC;? Manning said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Times change, circumstanc-

es change, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the reality of playing in the NFL.â&#x20AC;? Manning and Irsay each paused frequently, fighting tears and their voices shaking, as they appeared together at a news conference at the Coltsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; team complex. It was an unusual and awkward scene, two men whose NFL lives have been so closely intertwined, standing side-byside in jackets and ties as they told the world they were splitting up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This has not been easy for

Jim,â&#x20AC;? Manning said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and this has certainly not been easy for me.â&#x20AC;? The 35-year-old Manning will become a free agent, and is expected to generate interest from a half-dozen or so NFL clubs, provided heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s healthy. Manning is coming off a series of operations to his neck and missed all of last season when his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s record, not coincidentally, plummeted to 2-14. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peyton is on the mend to try to resume his career,â&#x20AC;? Ir-

say noted. Indianapolis needed to cut Manning this week to avoid paying him a bonus from the $90 million, five-year contract he signed in July, although both owner and player insisted the decision was not really about money. The Colts are widely expected to begin moving on by taking Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck with the No. 1 overall pick in Aprilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s draft. Please see COLTS | 9

Kentucky, Syracuse stand out for top seeds

Adult Softball

BY EDDIE PELLS The Associated Press

The Corinth/Alcorn Co. Parks and Recreation Department will be conducting team registration for Adult Softball Leagues until Friday. Leagues forming are Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Industrial, Open, Church and Seniors. A date and time for the mandatory mangers meeting will be given upon registration. Leagues will begin play the week of March 26. League registration is $350 for teams with an Alcorn County sponsor and $400 for others. All teams will be required to wear matching jerseys. Come by the park office to complete a registration form. For information call 286-3067. Office hours are 8 a.m. till 5 p.m.

Even the chairman of the tight-lipped NCAA selection committee canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t deny this simple fact: Heading into this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conference tournaments, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kentucky and Syracuse, and then everybody else. In a teleconference to preview Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s release of the NCAA tournament pairings, committee chairman Jeff Hathaway all but handed two of the four top seeds to the Wildcats and Orange, each of whom entered their conference tournaments with a re-

When Hathaway was pressed about his KentuckySyracuse statement, he tried to back off. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to say anyone should feel secure,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I did, those two coaches would get after me and say we took away some motivation.â&#x20AC;? He said injuries or a suspension, each of which the committee considers when making up the bracket, could change the picture.

He said the Big Ten, widely perceived as the strongest conference top to bottom this season, would not receive special consideration for a top seed.

COLTS: Bidding for Manning begins

Scoreboard Pro basketball NBA standings


Irsay repeatedly used the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;rebuildingâ&#x20AC;? and acknowledged: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re definitely a few years away.â&#x20AC;? Manning wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t retire and hopes to be playing in the NFL at the start of next season. Still, he said Wednesday: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll always be a Colt. I always will be. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never change.â&#x20AC;? The announcement was made in a room at the Coltsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; complex normally reserved for celebratory news conferences, such as the hiring of a new coach or general manager â&#x20AC;&#x201D; two other major steps Irsay took recently. The room is lined with banners honoring some of the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greatest stars, including, of course, Manning himself, flanked by Pro Football Hall of Famer members Eric Dickerson and John Mackey. Clearly, this was not an easy goodbye for Manning. He even got choked up while discussing all of the Colts employees heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll no longer be around, pausing to collect himself while noting: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got the greatest equipment guys in the world.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think about those type of relationships â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not necessarily always on the field, and the touchdown throw to win the game. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the behind the scenes. The laughs. The stories. The times spent together. Those are the memories. Those arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going away. Those will be with me for the rest of my life.â&#x20AC;? Manning forever will be thought of around these parts as No. 18, the quarterback who led the Colts to an NFL championship, barking out signals while waving his arms at the line of scrimmage to change a play after reading the defense â&#x20AC;&#x201D; something he did as well as any QB. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be remembered, too, for his record four MVP awards, his 50,000 yards passing and his 200 consecutive starts. Most of all, Manning will be the guy in the horseshoe helmet who turned around a franchise and transformed a basketball-loving city into a football hotbed.

Cabrera homers for first time Associated press

LAKELAND, Fla. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Miguel Cabreraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first home run of the spring was quite a sight. Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland would rather see some more groundballs hit at his new third baseman. Cabrera led off the third inning with a mighty home run over the left field berm in the Tigersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 5-1 over the Atlanta Braves, but he had only one ball hit toward him at third base. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ever worry about him hitting,â&#x20AC;? Leyland said of the American League batting champion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to see him get some action to get used to fielding the ball. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play him nine innings, and at the end of five innings he hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had many groundballs.â&#x20AC;? Cabrera, moving to third base this spring to accommodate Prince

Fielder at first base, made a good play on the ball hit to him Wednesday, saving rookie right-hander Jacob Turner from a big inning. With two on and none out, the Bravesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Tyler Pastornicky hit a chopper that Cabrera had to come in on and then throw across his body for the out at first base. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He made a good play on a guy that can run,â&#x20AC;? Leyland said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only a tough play if you worry about making a perfect throw,â&#x20AC;? said Cabrera, who played third base in his first four major league seasons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just tried to get to it and not worry so much about the throw.â&#x20AC;? Ryan Raburnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two-run triple highlighted a fourrun inning off Atlanta starter Brandon Beachy. Ryan Strieby and Clete Thomas also had hits in the inning, costing Beachy

a loss in his first spring start. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At this point last year, if I go out and do this, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m at a totally different place in my mind,â&#x20AC;? said Beachy, who has a spot in the Bravesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rotation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But today I felt good, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always the No. 1 thing when you go out there for the first time.â&#x20AC;? The 20-year-old Turner, bidding for the fifth spot in Detroitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rotation, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get through the second inning because of four walks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You want to get ready for the season, but at the same time you want to show what you can do out there. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t my best day,â&#x20AC;? he said. Luis Marte came in to shut down the Braves and get the win. Left-hander Andy Oliver pitched three shutout innings for the Tigers.

NCAA: Committee tries not to see â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;majorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; status CONTINUED FROM 8

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fact of the matter is, conference RPI and conference rankings are not brought up in the rating room at all,â&#x20AC;? Hathaway said, speaking to a change the selection committee made in the time since he joined five years ago. He said the knee injury to freshman Branden Dawson of Michigan State, denying the Spartans of an eight-point, four-rebound player as they head into the postseason, could play into their seeding. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The ... great thing about this situation is, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have the ability to see Michigan State play without himâ&#x20AC;? in the Big Ten tournament, Hathaway said. Two years ago, Purdue lost two of its last five games heading into the tournament after high-

scoring forward Robbie Hummel tore up his knee late in the season. The committee dropped the Boilermakers, once a topseed contender, into a No. 4 seed and conceded Hummelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s injury made Purdue a different team and affected their decision. Hathaway said committee members have been instructed to look at teams on their own merits, without lumping them into the usual categories â&#x20AC;&#x201D; midmajors vs. BCS or â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;powerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;conference teams. The number of midmajors that earn at-large bids is always widely scrutinized. Last year, there were seven â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one fewer than in 2010, but three more than in 2009 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and VCU made the Final Four. Meanwhile, mid-major Butler has been in the last two finals, though the

Bulldogs struggled this year and arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expected to make the tournament. Among those on the bubble this year are South Florida, Miami, Texas, North Carolina State and Colorado State. The Ramsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fate might be as telling as anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. They are a lowprofile, mid-major team with 18 Division I wins, only three of which were away games. Yet they have an RPI rating of 22 and the eighth most difficult strength of schedule. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We look at the body of work, front to back, beginning to end,â&#x20AC;? Hathaway said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We put them up against other teams that are being considered for selection. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the bulk of the work. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why we spend so many days and hours here. We make sure we compare all the teams, irregardless of what conference they come from.â&#x20AC;?

ANTHONY DAVIS, KENTUCKY The fabulous freshman closed the regular season in style, with 22 points, 12 rebounds and six blocked shots as Kentucky capped off a perfect 16–0 SEC regular season with a dominating 74–59 win over Florida in Gainesville. Davis, the SEC Player of the Year, shot 50 percent or better from the field in all but two conference games this season.

WILL BARTON, MEMPHIS Memphis wrapped up the Conference USA regular-season title with a 78–66 win at Tulsa. Barton, a sophomore swingman, led the way with a season-high 30 points to go along with a game-high nine rebounds. Memphis finished with a 13–5 league record, two games ahead of Southern Miss. DOUG MCDERMOTT, CREIGHTON The awards keep rolling in for McDermott, the Bluejays’ sophomore forward and the son of head coach Greg McDermott. Just days after earning Missouri Valley Player of the Year honors, the younger McDermott was named MVP of the MVC Tournament after scoring 33 points in Creighton’s 83–79 overtime win over Illinois State. The Bluejays are now headed back to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2007. JAE CROWDER, MARQUETTE In his final game at the Bradley Center, Crowder scored 26 points and grabbed 14 rebounds to lead the Golden Eagles to an 83–69 win over Georgetown. A senior who began his career in junior college, Crowder is averaging 17.6 points and 7.9 boards for Buzz Williams’ club. He was a first-team All-Big East pick. DREW GORDON, NEW MEXICO Gordon scored 30 points and added 13 rebounds to help New Mexico secure a share of the Mountain West title with a 76–61 win over Boise State. New Mexico and San Diego State both finished 10–4 in the league, one game ahead of UNLV. ARNETT MOULTRIE, MISSISSIPPI STATE Mississippi State closed its SEC slate with a convincing 79–59 win over Arkansas behind yet another double-double from Moultrie. The junior from Memphis — by way of UTEP — scored 20 points and had 10 rebounds for the Bulldogs, who won for the second straight game to even their SEC record at 8–8. KENDALL MARSHALL, NORTH CAROLINA Marshall scored 20 points and handed out 10 assists in North Carolina’s surprisingly easy 88–70 win at Duke on Saturday night. It was the eighth time in 16 games that Marshall has had at least 10 assists in a league game. JAMAAL FRANKLIN, SAN DIEGO STATE Franklin did a little bit of everything for the Aztecs, who wrapped up a share of the Mountain West title with a 98–92 win in overtime at TCU. The sophomore guard scored 35 points, grabbed 13 rebounds and had five assists. It was his third straight game with at least 18 points and 12 rebounds. THOMAS ROBINSON, KANSAS In what figures to be his final game at historic Phog Allen Fieldhouse, Robinson scored 25 points and grabbed 14 rebounds to lead Kansas to a 73–63 win over Texas. Robinson, a junior and consensus first-team All-American, is expected to jump to the NBA following the season. WILLIAM BUFORD, OHIO STATE Buford, Ohio State’s only senior, scored a gamehigh 25 points and nailed a jump shot from the top of the key with one second left to give the Buckeyes a thrilling 72–70 win over Michigan State in East Lansing. The victory created a three-way tie between Ohio State, Michigan State and Michigan for the regular-season Big Ten title.

MIKE SCOTT, VIRGINIA Scott came up big for Virginia in his final regular-season game. The senior forward scored a career-high 35 points and added 11 rebounds to lead UVa to a 75–72 overtime win at Maryland. The win gives the Cavaliers a first-round bye in the upcoming ACC Tournament and almost assures them of an at-large invitation to the NCAA Tournament — their first since 2007.

Kentucky completes perfect SEC season; first to do so since ’03 Cats. Orange led the Big East in offensive and defensive efficiency in league games. Tar Heels win the ACC regular-season crown in style with big win in Durham. Opponents are hitting only 40 percent of their 2-point attempts vs. Kansas. Tigers lead the nation by averaging 1.24 points per offensive possession. Blue Devils have not lost outside of Durham since Jan. 4, at Temple. Buckeyes rally to beat Michigan State in East Lansing to tie for Big Ten title. Spartans lose on Senior Night, but Draymond Green still gets to hang a banner. Eagles are tenacious but lack size; keeping opponents off the offensive glass is key. Opponents are shooting only 27.5 percent from 3-point range; best in the nation. Hoosiers went 5–0 vs. in-state foes, with all five wins coming by double figures. Wolverines earn a share of their first Big Ten championship since 1986. This team is far too talented to have lost six games in the Big 12. The Badgers ‘erupt’ for 70 points in a 14-point win over Illinois in Big Ten finale. Shockers stumble in Valley semis, but this team is good enough to reach Sweet 16. The Seminoles have proven that they are more than just defensive stoppers. The Owls are among the most efficient offensive teams in the nation. It wasn’t easy, but Murray State edged Tennessee State for the OVC Tournament title. Free throw shooting could be an issue in NCAAs; ISU shoots .677 from the stripe. Fighting Irish won 10 of their final 12 Big East games to earn a double-bye. Rebels lost their final four road games; this could be an issue in the NCAAs. The king is dead: Gaels knock WCC bully Gonzaga from its throne. Dores went 5–3 down the stretch, with two of the losses to UK by single digits. Zags didn’t win WCC regular season, but exacted revenge in league tournament. Lobos’ efficiency numbers were great in Mountain West play. *Records and rankings are as of March 5

Tyler Zeller, North Carolina

Athlon Sports’ Tournament Previews Dark horse — Indiana With wins over Kentucky, Ohio State and Michigan State, the red-hot Hoosiers have proven they can beat any team in the nation. Predicted winner — Indiana Winning four games in four days is never easy, but Tom Crean’s team is playing with a ton of confidence. Having the tournament in nearby Indianapolis won’t hurt, either.

ACC Tournament Favorite — North Carolina The Tar Heels didn’t quite dominate like we thought in the regular season, but this is still a very talented team that won the outright ACC title and is still in position to earn a No. 1 seed in the upcoming NCAA Tournament. If the Tar Heels shoot well from the perimeter, they will be very tough to beat. Dark horse — Florida State The Seminoles wrapped up a 12–4 ACC season with a win vs. Clemson over the weekend. It’s no surprise that Florida State is strong on the defensive end; what makes the ’11-12 Noles special is their improved offensive play. Prediction — North Carolina It’s tough to bet against Duke in the ACC Tournament — the Devils have won the event three straight times — but North Carolina is clearly the best team in the league. Big 12 Tournament Favorite — Kansas This is far from a vintage Kansas team, but the Jayhawks still managed to win their eighthstraight Big 12 title. KU boasts two elite players — big man Thomas Robinson and guard Tyshawn Taylor — a solid cast of role players and an elite coach in Bill Self. That’s a recipe for postseason success. Dark horse — Iowa State Few teams rely on the 3-point shot as much as the Cyclones, who get 36.8 percent of their scoring from beyond the arc. This team could win three games in three days if the shots are falling. Predicted winner — Missouri The Tigers would love nothing more than to cut down the nets in Kansas City — and celebrate a win over Kansas — in their final appearance in the Big 12 Tournament. Big East Tournament Favorite — Syracuse The Orange dominated the league, winning the regular season by three games over Marquette. This team might lack a true superstar, but Syracuse is strong at every position and has quality depth across the board. Dark horse — Georgetown Not much was expected from the Hoyas this season, but JTIII’s club won 12 games in league play and has a favorable draw (Cincinnati in the

Pac-12 Tournament Favorite — Washington The Huskies struggled in non-conference action, but they have plenty of talent. The backcourt duo of freshman Tony Wroten and sophomore Terrence Ross can be a handful. Dark horse — UCLA This once-dominant program has been an afterthought in the Pac-12 in 2011-12, but the Bruins do have some talent, and they have been very solid on the offensive end of the floor during league play. It wouldn’t be a shock to see UCLA reach the title game. Predicted winner — Oregon The Ducks played well down the stretch and finished with a 13–5 mark in league play. The addition of DeVoe Joseph, a mid-year transfer from Minnesota, has given Dana Altman’s club a reliable threat from the perimeter.

Bruce Schwartzman

Kansas has won five of the past six Big 12 Tournament titles. Thomas Robinson and the Jayhawks are the favorites to win it again, but watch out for Frank Haith and Missouri.

quarterfinals) in the Big East Tournament. Georgetown could play its way to a No. 3 seed in the NCAA with a strong showing in New York City. Predicted winner — Syracuse It’s the boring pick, but Syracuse is the safe pick, as well. The Orange, if motivated, should be able to win three games in three days. Big Ten Tournament Favorite — Ohio State It’s tough to pick a favorite when three teams tie for the regular-season title, but the Buckeyes have the most talented roster in the Big Ten. Keeping Jared Sullinger out of foul trouble will be the top priority for the Buckeyes.

SEC Tournament Favorite — Kentucky Kentucky was by far the best team in the league — both offensively and defensively — and won their 16 SEC games by an average of 16.4 points. Some point to the bench as a weakness, but both Darius Miller and Kyle Wiltjer are outstanding players who would both start for every other team in the league. Dark horse — Mississippi State You can never count out Rick Stansbury and his dysfunctional band of Bulldogs. Senior point guard Dee Bost and junior forward Arnett Moultrie give Mississippi State one of the best insideout duos in the league. The supporting cast is solid, as well. Predicted winner — Kentucky A few teams in the SEC have proven they are good enough to play with Kentucky, but none has shown the ability to beat the Wildcats. It would be a major surprise if UK doesn’t claim its third straight SEC Tournament title.

Top-ranked Kentucky team to beat at SEC tourney BY DAVID BRANDT Associated Press

NEW ORLEANS — Three years into coach John Calipari’s tenure at Kentucky, the Wildcats are once again the unquestioned kings of the Southeastern Conference. The No. 1-ranked Wildcats open this week’s SEC tournament in New Orleans with a swagger reminiscent of the 1990s, when they won seven of eight tournament championships. They were so

dominant the event was jokingly referred to as the Kentucky Invitational. “It’s another time to get a championship,” Kentucky guard Darius Miller said. “Hopefully we can continue the run that we’ve had and hopefully it can give us a little experience for the (NCAA) tournament.” There’s a good reason the Wildcats’ moxie has returned. Kentucky boasts a roster of potential future NBA players and a 30-1 record

that includes the first 16-0 SEC slate for any program since the Wildcats accomplished the feat in 2003. They haven’t lost in nearly three months and have arguably the nation’s best player in freshman Anthony Davis, a 6-foot-10 forward who is averaging 14.4 points, 9.8 rebounds and is the nation’s leading shotblocker with 4.7 per game. The top four seeds — Kentucky, Tennessee, Vanderbilt and Florida — all receive first-round

byes in the 12-team tournament, which starts on Thursday. There is drama in the middle of the pack. Several teams need a strong showing to solidify their NCAA tournament resumes. Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi State and Mississippi are all in various stages of uncertainty as the league hopes to place six teams in the tournament for the first time since 2008. Mississippi State’s

NCAA resume looked fine until a surprising fivegame losing streak in February. The Bulldogs have won two straight to right the ship and are the last team not named Kentucky to win the tournament in 2009. Ole Miss is trying to make the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2002, which is the league’s longest drought. The Rebels likely need a deep run to merit much consideration.

Horoscopes by Holiday BY HOLIDAY MATHIS The full moon in Virgo suggests that this is the moment to get back to basics. The top priority is safety and health. Everything builds to that end. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just about sticking to secure situations and activities, getting exercise or eating foods that nurture your body, though. Your happiness is a key piece of the puzzle. Do your joy. ARIES (March 21-April 19). Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re careful to celebrate the big events in the lives of others, but you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait for big events to show people how much you care about them. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be on many â&#x20AC;&#x153;favoriteâ&#x20AC;? lists. TAURUS (April 20May 20). A compulsive sense of urgency compels you to achieve more in less time. But is this sense of hurry really necessary? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not so good for your heart. Try to take things slow. GEMINI (May 21June 21). You wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be content to know that you did your best unless your best was enough to get the job done. You wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be happy until you know that you did what it took to get the job done. CANCER (June 22July 22). Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been said

that your life canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go according to plan if you have no plan. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also been said that when you make a plan, the gods laugh. So which is it? Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see a little of both schools of thought at work in your life. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Sometimes what you would like to do is not actually the most important thing, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why it never fits properly into your schedule. Trust that you always have time for what you think is truly important. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You like to be thought of as a considerate person. By the same token, you have no interest in being taken advantage of by those who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appreciate the thought you put into relationships. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be making â&#x20AC;&#x153;notes to selfâ&#x20AC;? all day long. It will help you to write them down, or youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re likely to forget. Writing helps you mentally organize yourself even if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t save what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve written. SCORPIO (Oct. 24Nov. 21). Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re onto something; you just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what it is quite yet. Look at what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve covered and where youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going next. Record and

explore new ideas. Be patient, and allow yourself to drift. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You want to inspire others like you have been inspired by the greats. Living well is the key. Your life will be more of an inspiration than your words ever could be. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be taking yet another chance. This one might not be much of a risk in any way except perhaps emotionally. Better to try to do something and fail than to try to do nothing and succeed. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18). You have a feisty spirit, and you like to say the kind of funny things that make people wonder whether or not youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really kidding. Probably even you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the answer to that question. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your creativity will be strengthened by a lackadaisical attitude toward rules and structure. Later, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to get with the so-called â&#x20AC;&#x153;program,â&#x20AC;? but for now youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re better off doing your own thing. TODAYâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S BIRTHDAY (March 8). You havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a clue whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coming, and the surprise of that makes life interesting for you this year. A fantastic new circle of friends will cele-

brate your ideas and support your plans. You provide what family needs in June. September is your time to invest deeply in your own dream. Aquarius and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 21, 24, 40 and 19. COSMIC CONFIDENCE: In the age of Facebook and YouTube, there are more opportunities than ever before to project yourself in a public forum. Your astrological sign offers unique insight to help you gain the confident edge that will make others take notice and give you the right kind of attention. So whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your cosmic advantage? SAGITTARIUS: Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re one of the most confident signs of the zodiac, but you probably donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know that. In the same way

Top 10 Reasons For Reading A Newspaper: 1. My newspaper has never crashed, gone down or flashed animated ads at me. 2. Anywhere I travel, my newspaper goes with me. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need a laptop or a wireless connection or a PDA. 3. I can read my newspaper while standing, while eating, while riding a bus, but not while driving my car, which is just as well since I should be paying attention to the road. 4. If I read a story I like, I can tear it out and save it, and not have to pay to read it 30 days later. 5. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to sign in or customize or register or remember passwords to read my newspaper. And I often enjoy articles in my newspaper on topics I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t normally think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be interested in. 6. My newspaper has high-resolution pictures and type on large pages that load almost instantly, making it easy to browse and enjoy. 7. My newspaper is cheap, disposable and easy to replace. If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lost or stolen, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no big deal. 8. My newspaper is not made of unrecyclable toxic materials. 9. If my newspaper makes a mistake, the correction is posted with an explanation. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not sneaky applied to the original story after Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve read it. 10. I can read my newspaper sitting outside on a nice day in the sun, even if a breeze is blowing, because I know how to fold a newspaper.
