MLE venue adds Slugburger Festival Tourism board grants $7,000 to Main Street Corinth for July festival BY STEVE BEAVERS

The Corinth Area Convention & Visitors Bureau is helping Main Street Corinth take a bite of Major League Eating. The tourism board approved $7,000 for Main Street to use as part of the Slugburger Festival set for July 12-14. “This is a great opportunity to grow the festival to a regional

level,” said Main Street Director Montana Hill. “We want to have a more festival atmosphere and the MLE gives us so many opportunities to do that.” Hill told the board in March that a major eating association had inquired about having a Slugburger World Eating Competition. “It’s more entertainment than an eating contest,” added Hill.

Major League Eating is the world body that oversees all professional eating contests. The organization, which developed competitive eating and includes the sport’s governing body, the International Federation of Competitive Eating, helps sponsors to develop, publicize and execute world-class eating events in all varieties of food disciplines.

The board also approved a pair of sponsorships for the Jacinto Foundation, Inc. and a request from the Kiwanis Club. In the first Jacinto request, the board approved $262 to be used for a new sign above the store. The sign will be designed by a local Girl Scout troop with Corinth High School art instructor Lynn Haynie overseeing the project. The Jacinto

Volunteer Fire Department will install the sign for free and all labor will be donated. Up to $1,343 was approved for the foundation to purchase 10 new picnic tables. A pair of the tables will replace rotten ones by the store, two will be placed at the well with the remaining six put throughout the park. Please see MLE | 2A

Re-enactor portrays unknown soldier walking during tour For the Daily Corinthian

An Africian-American Civil War re-enactor for the National Park Service will portray the unknown Union soldier on Saturday at the Bethany Historic Cemetery. “Walking through Time”, a guided cemetery tour by Patrick Shell wills at 2 p.m. at the cemetery. Guests will learn to look beyond the stones and into the stories of the men and women

who molded the community as well as soldiers who died to preserve a way of life. Shell, who is from Vicksburg, will tell the story of a black soldier who guarded the supply wagons of the Union troops at the Battle of Brice’s Crossroads on June 10, 1864. Historians believe that a skeleton uncovered in the Tishomingo Creek bed in 1953 could have been one of the U. S. Colored troops. When the skeleton was found, his pocket

watch and weapon remained with him. His remains were buried in the Bethany Historic Cemetery. Six other local costumed figures will enchant and entertain as they bring to life the founding minister of the Bethany A.R. P. church; one of the known Confederate soldiers, Hardin Gilbert; founding families and others. Please see CEMETARY | 2A

others for adolescent immunization coverage. Forty-one other states require the vaccine, which has been a recommended vaccination for that age group since 2006. “We still strongly recommend the Tdap vaccine for all adolescents,” said Dr. Paul Byers, acting state epidemiologist. “However, it is only required for those entering seventh grade.” The Tdap vaccine normally costs $10.

Living Free Ministries celebrates eighth year BY JEFF YORK For the Daily Corinthian

A ministry which has helped thousands of people across the Crossroads area over the past eight years will celebrate its anniversary with a special Celebration Night Thursday at Oakland Baptist Church. Living Free Ministries will have their annual Celebration Night at Oakland Baptist Church Thursday to celebrate their 8th anniversary. The free meal will begin at 6 p.m. and there will be childcare for those ages 4-12 at the Living Free Building on U.S. 72 behind Magnolia Funeral

Home. “We are very excited about our celebration night,” said Living Free founder Tommy Wilson. “This night is all about saying thank you to the community for their generous support over the years. We do not hold any regular fundraisers and this night is not a fundraiser.” A favorite saying of Wilson is their goal is to “turn drug addicts into dads.” He and his wife Marea have worked hard over the past eight years to build the very successful ministry.

Habitat for Humanity is taking a swing to raise funds for its next project. The Corinth-Alcorn Chapter is trading its hammer for a golf club with the 2012 Habitat for Humanity Golf Tournament scheduled April 28 at Shiloh Falls Golf Club in Pickwick, Tenn. “We would like to raise $25,000 so we can begin our next project with a partner family,” said the chapter’s Chessica Harville. “We will also accept any kind of donation.” The four-man scramble has an entry fee of $200. The fee includes 18 holes of golf, use of cart, practice range balls and lunch. Subway is providing the lunch. Organizers are shooting for 30 teams. Five teams have reg-

istered thus far. Registration begins at 8 a.m. with the scramble teeing off at 9 a.m. “We also need more sponsors and will take as many as we can get,” added Harville.

Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit, Christian housing ministry that seeks to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness. Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Habitat provides affordable housing for families in need. Habitat isn’t a giveaway program.

The health department says the immunity gained from early childhood immunizations against pertussis (whooping cough) weakens over time. Pertussis is highly contagious and is considered an increasing problem across the U.S. Parents may also choose to get other recommended shots for preteens, such as those against meningococcal disease, human paillomavirus, and a second

dose of varicella (chicken pox) vaccine for those who did not receive one at an earlier age. Vaccinations are available for diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, polio, haemophilus influenzae type b, measles, mumps, rubella, chicken pox, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, pneumococcal, meningococcal, HPV and rotavirus. “Immunizations are the best protection we can offer our children against these often deadly diseases,” said Byers. The Alcorn County Health Department is open Monday through Friday on Jo Ann Drive.

the night with a message. The church is an avid supporter of Living Free. Wilson has brought in author Rev. Eddie Spencer as the keynote speaker. Spencer wrote the book “Inmate 46857” about his time in Parchman State Penitentiary and the moment God changed his life. Rev. Spencer was sitting on his prison cot in Parchman in 1982 holding a homemade knife and contemplating murdering two fellow inmates just to strengthen his tough reputation. While the 19-year-old convict visualized stabbing his intended victims, God intervened and provided deliverance. The encounter with God took only a moment, but getting there had taken a lifetime. Instantly, all the years of anger and rejection flashed before his eyes.

Finally, Spencer recalled the night he slipped into a house, pointed a gun at a sleeping man’s face and said “Give me all your money!” He later served a 10year sentence at Parchman for attempted murder and robbery. Living Free has been instrumental over the years in helping many people with life controlling issues like alcohol, drugs and gambling. LFM has over 100 people weekly in their various local meetings. There are classes for men and women in an addiction study on Monday at 6 p.m. The Celebration Nights are held on Thursday at 6 p.m. A meal is held before both meetings. On Saturday, there is a men’s Bible study at 7 a.m. and a women’s Bible study at 9 a.m. (For more information on Living Free, you can check their web site ( or search for them on Facebook.

Mother’s Day, give the gift of health For the Daily Corinthian

Patti Beard, 54 and a Warren County native, started smoking at age 18 while in college “because everyone else was doing it and it was cool.” Beard quit smoking 34 years later because her dream of watching her only child grow up and have her own children was more important than her own addiction. “Smoking was impacting my breathing, so I didn’t want to risk the chance of how it would continue to impact my health. I quit a year and a half ago and hope I quit before I caused damage that may show up later,” said Beard. Women, like Beard, are increasingly being targeted by the tobacco industry through elaborate marketing campaigns. All too often these marketing campaigns are used to reduce women’s fear of the health risks from smoking by depicting positive images, such as models or celebrities using tobacco. “Mississippi women are a major target of the tobacco industry. The tobacco industry is targeting women with cleverly thought-out marketing campaigns in order to replace smokers who will die prematurely from tobacco-related diseases with new users,” said Roy Hart, Director of the Office of Tobacco Control with the Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH). According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), female smokers are at a greater risk for cardiovascular disease, higher rates of infertil-

Smoking during pregnancy adversely affects fetal development. It also increases infant mortality rates, which is the rate at which babies under one year of age die. “The facts are clear: smoking kills,” said Emily J. McGrath, project director of the Tobacco-Free Coalition of Alcorn and Tippah counties. “But there are opportunities for Mississippi’s female tobacco users to win the war against their addictions. Women who get help are twice as likely to quit for good.” Mississippi women and others who want to quit using tobacco can contact the Mississippi Tobacco Quitline at 1-800-QUITNOW to receive free counseling and medications, such as nicotine patches or gum. “With all of the resources available today to help, there has never been a better time to quit smoking,” said McGrath. “Make this Mother’s Day the day you quit.” (For more information, visit the Mississippi Tobacco Quitline at or call 1-800-QUITNOW or 1-800-784-8669.

Beef plant fiasco parties reach legal agreement Mississippians got a “blast from the past,” as they say, with the news that a legal settlement appeared in the offing over the nearly forgotten Mississippi Beef Processors Inc. For those who may have forgotten, the beef plant, as it was called, was once a shining idea among state lawmakers for creating a market for cattle growers. It failed, with taxpayers left holding the bag. As The Clarion-Ledger reported, Jan Schaefer, a spokeswoman for Attorney General Jim Hood, said the state and Georgia’s Facility Group, which was hired to oversee construction of the plant, have reached agreement although a settlement has yet to be submitted to Hinds County Circuit Judge Winston Kidd. The state’s lawsuit alleges that Facility Construction Management Inc., a subsidiary of the Smyrna, Ga., Facility Group, kept the project going even after executives knew it was doomed, so the state kept pumping in money. Mississippi Beef Processors LLC closed three months after it opened in 2004, laying off 400 people and sticking taxpayers with $55 million in state-backed loans. A trial had been scheduled to begin March 19 before Kidd, but never took place. The last public action in the case was lawyers arguing motions before Kidd in February. Six people went to jail in that case, including three leaders of the Facility Group.. The truth of the matter is that the beef plant exposed a monumental breakdown in the state’s process of due diligence for economic development projects between the legislative and executive branches of government. ... As former State Auditor and now Gov. Phil Bryant said afterward in investigating the fiasco, state officials “took a bad idea and turned it into a financial disaster.” They ignored all warnings. But it did provide a good, though expensive and, hopefully, enduring lesson: that elected officials should not be involved in the details of economic development. ... Another lesson, however, is contrary to the ones learned through the blunder, and that is one of not throwing the baby out with the bath water. The state cannot afford to allow the beef plant fiasco to stop needed investment in markets and industry that can benefit the public. — The Clarion-Ledger, Jackson

Out-of-state tuition waivers may draw talent College recruiting in Mississippi is a competitive business. Not only do the eight public universities compete against each other and, to some degree, against the less-expensive community colleges and the more-expensive private colleges. They also compete against universities in bordering states. Mississippi has decided to copy their trick and begin waiving the higher out-of-state tuition for some students from neighboring states who enroll in Mississippi universities. Gov. Phil Bryant signed into law a bill that gives the state College Board the authority to use these waivers as a recruiting tool. The idea is a good one, as long as it is used judiciously. The details are still being worked as to which universities will use the waivers and for which students. Some schools, such as the University of Mississippi, don’t need to create an extra edge. Already more than a third of the students on the Oxford campus come from out of state. They appear to have no issue with paying the higher tuition. There are some places, however, where the average price break of about $8,200 a year might be a useful carrot. That’s especially true for the smaller universities near state borders that are struggling to meet their enrollment goals. The tuition waivers need to be carefully monitored, however, since the families of these out-of-state students don’t foot much of the tax bill that subsidizes their education. Even though state support, as a percent of the total cost of educating a student, has steadily declined in recent years, it still represents a healthy chunk of a university’s operation. It doesn’t do Mississippi much good to invest in educating some other state’s citizens, only to have them return home when they get their degree. But if the tuition break can be used to attract and keep talent from nearby states, then that’s a good bargain. Whatever revenue is foregone in the short term will be more than made up for by the economic activity such imported brainpower can generate. — The Greenwood Commonwealth

States do fine on 10th Amendment issues One surefire way to gain the sympathy of the voters during election season is for a candidate to bemoan the fact that the evil ole federal government is brutishly suffocating the states under the heel of its boot. Given the recent rhetoric of certain candidates and the flurry of activity by the states now is a good time to assess the status of federalism in the United States. How many times has a candidate, a conservative strategist or a conservative member of Congress invoked the notion the 10th Amendment has been ignored long enough and the 10th Amendment would be restored to its original meaning if only candidates from their side were elected? The 10th Amendment states ,”The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” Taken by itself, the amendment seems fairly clear. However, it must be considered beside its menacing Constitutional counterpart, often referred to as the “elastic clause” or the “necessary and proper clause,” which appears in Article I of the Constitution. This clause states ,”The Congress shall have Power -- To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution

the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the GovMarty ernment….” So the Wiseman conservative Stennis assumption Institute anything that has yet to be dealt with by the Constitution or Congress is reserved totally to the states must compete with the notion Congress has carte blanche to pass anything it wishes in furtherance of the wellbeing of the country -- national healthcare legislation being an excellent example. What is the status of this battle as we head into the heat of a presidential campaign? At this point in time it seems modern era “states righters” doth protest too much. The growing crescendo of conservative legislation around the country is gaining traction in the state legislatures, but not in the hopelessly deadlocked Congress. Indeed, the state legislative efforts to put forth the conservative agenda are doing so well it almost seems to have been orchestrated to be this way. One cannot help but wonder, “Where is Haley Barbour, and what is he doing now he doesn’t have to worry about running a state?” Former Gov. Barbour admitted during his last few

years in office that in his role as an officer, and ultimately as chairman, of the Republican Governors’ Association he would be heavily involved in elections in a majority of the states in the country. In fact, this has been one of the most successful periods of electoral success at the state level for Republicans in history. When the smoke cleared from the most recent round of elections there were 29 Republican governors and 34 legislatures where at least one house was in Republican hands, and 27 of these were legislatures where the GOP was in the majority in both houses. Are we thus to believe it is a planned strategy on the part of Republicans to hold the U.S. Congress in a deadlocked position and to vigorously push legislation at the state level? To add some horsepower to the hard-fought Republican majority in the governors’ mansions and legislatures the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) was created as a clearing house for the assembly of conservative model legislation to be considered by their growing number of subscribing conservative members in these legislatures. What has been the result of these efforts so far? Legislation and/or citizen initiatives related to all manner of reproductive

rights have been put forth on a state-by-state basis. These have pertained to abortion restrictions, restrictions on the availability of contraceptives, and a national initiative on the definition of “personhood.” Several Republican-majority legislatures are at some stage of wrestling with immigration laws of the type clearly assumed as federal priorities until recently. Then there is a bevy of legislation related to state election law reforms, including the requirement for voter identification cards in a number of states. Many have viewed this as an effort to suppress the vote in the states where they have passed because a number have rolled back such things as weekend registration opportunities and lengths of time for early voting. Other states have attempted to strike a fatal blow to labor unions by passing right-to-work legislation. Then there are states, through their attorneys general, suing over the Affordable Health Care Act. In summary, states are wasting no time filling the void left by a deadlocked Congress. No doubt the federal courts will speak on behalf of the national government. If this is indeed a planned strategy the Republicans should take full credit for its successes since it has put the states back in the federal game.

Gathering yet another box of books RALEIGH, N.C. — In a fairground exhibit hall as big as Rhode Island, the library is selling its castoffs, enough books to educate a small nation. Or Rhode Island. The place is packed with folks who don’t know or care that a contraption named Kindle rules, who prefer to touch books and turn their pages and occasionally stack some thick ones beneath the bottom of a child too short to reach the table. Men and women and a few children, gratifyingly enough, are walking around with boxes filled with books, the kind you can dog-ear and press flowers with and put on a shelf to admire and read again. Who would have thought technology would make us dinosaurs who feed on printed words and endlessly roam the stacks? A bagpiper plays from a stage, and I keep hoping it is not a dirge. Aren’t there enough of us hefting boxes piled with mysteries and thick, pretty art books and novels we read back in col-

lege to give hope that books aren’t buggy whips? Don’t we look normal, not cadaver-ish? My home is Rheta built around Johnson my books, Columnist not the other way around. I paid a carpenter recently to close in a deck to make a room with more shelves. I had filled all my others. And I cannot stop buying books, though sometimes I chide myself for spending far too much money on words. But how can I resist when there’s a new one with a tea-stained-colored cover called “Hemingway’s Boat, Everything He Loved in Life, and Lost?” It tells us about the writer in Cuba and on his boat The Pilar, a context as brilliant and vast as the sea. And my husband recently gave me the letters of Julia Child and Avis DeVoto, “As Always, Julia,” and how could you not want to display properly that lovely

cover with a beaming Julia wearing pearls in her French kitchen? And then my friends keep writing books, which makes it necessary to place signed copies on a special, prominent shelf. Leslie Criss compiled her columns, and Jimmy Johnson his cartoons. Jerry Brown scored a book blurb by Harper Lee on his deftly told grandfather’s story, and a group of Auburn women gathered the best of their short stories and poems and named the book “Be the Flame” and themselves the Mystics. Some shelves are sentimental journeys, with groupings of books by friends dead and gone, inspiring writers like Celestine Sibley, a woman never too busy writing four columns a week to churn out a book every now and again. Kathryn Wyndham’s work is on that shelf as well, and books by that tough, takeno-prisoners gal Molly Ivins. I miss them all, but don’t have to be bereft because

they left me their sterling words. If you are reading these words in a newspaper, I am preaching to the choir. I don’t have to tell you how it feels to be part of a vanishing breed, a sucker for tangible words. You know. I fill my box slowly, not wanting to leave a swell scene some would describe as a vanishing act. I peruse the travel books and find one about Italy for friends about to go there. I find a small book on Natchez I know my mother will love. I move past tables and tables of mysteries -- why, oh why, don’t I write those? -- and linger too long in the crafts aisle looking for knitting books for my knitting friend Anita. And that routes me to photography, where I get a real workout pulling Ansel Adams and Karsh from the bottom of tall stacks. The price for a big box of books is $26, less than I’ll spend for supper. I’ll have the books forever, but tomorrow won’t remember what I ate.

State/Local Senators mull changing Mississippi workers’ comp bill BY JEFF AMY Associated Press

JACKSON — Mississippi senators are considering making more changes to a workers’ compensation bill that sparked controversy in the Legislature this year. Supporters said the bill removes an existing bias toward workers, while opponents say changes would make it harder for workers to get paid for injuries. Workers’ compensation insurance is supposed to limit employers’ liability, in exchange for not making workers prove who’s at fault. The House actually passed Senate Bill 2576 twice, pulling it back for

more debate in between. Supporters are urging senators to agree to the House changes and send the bill to Gov. Phil Bryant, avoiding the chance of another reversal in the House. The Senate approved the bill 39-13 on March 14, in part because Senate Insurance Committee Chairman Videt Carmichael, R-Meridian, had assured other senators that the bill would go to conference for negotiations with House members. Carmichael said Tuesday he hadn’t decided if senators should agree to the House version or seek further talks. “There’s no decision now that’s been made,”

he said. “We are going to listen.” Most of the changes would apply to the small minority of claims that are disputed, supporters said. Several senators who voted for the measure the first time expressed concerns, urging a conference. “I want to make sure we’re not hurting good, hard-working Mississippians,” said Sen. Sean Tindell, R-Gulfport. “This Legislature doesn’t do anything for the little man,” said Sen. Kenny Wayne Jones, DCanton, who also voted for the bill in March. Sen. John Horhn, D-

Jackson, who has opposed the measure from the beginning, said the message that the bill will make it harder for injured workers to navigate the system is getting through. “The problem is when the bill first came before the Senate, we didn’t realize the ramifications of the bill to the extent we do now,” Horhn said. Among the items that opponents are most concerned about is a requirement that workers present proof at an early stage of a contested proceeding that work somehow caused an injury. They say that eats away at the idea that workers don’t have to prove employers

are at fault. But Sen. Will Longwitz, R-Madison, said opposition to the measure is overblown. “Every party now is going to have to bring some proof,” he said. “Nothing about this bill is going to change the no-fault nature of workers’ compensation.” Longwitz said that an analysis shows that employers’ insurance rates would go down under the bill. Sen. Giles Ward, RLouisville, said that 48 business associations have endorsed the proposal. “They consider this legislation as the single most

important piece of legislation that we’ve had before us since tort reform,” said Ward, citing bills to limit lawsuits that were a focus of business efforts for years. Dan Gibson, executive director of the Mississippi Association of Self-Insurers, denied that the push is about saving money, though. The association’s members are employers who cover their own costs, instead of contracting with third-party insurers. “This isn’t a matter of rates, it’s a matter of fairness,” Gibson said. “It’s gotten worse and worse. We’ve been trying to get this done for 20 years.”

Dispatchers teach first graders importance of 911 — and when not to call BY JEFF YORK For the Daily Corinthian

MICHIE, Tenn. — An effort to educate first graders on how to properly use 911 has gotten positive feedback two weeks into the program. The McNairy County E-911 dispatchers went to Michie School last week and plan to visit the other four elementary schools to teach the first graders when it is appropriate to call 911. The U.S. Senate voted last year to declare the month of April as National 911 Education Month. McNairy’s dispatchers came up with the idea to carry a 911 education program into the schools and target

the first grade classes. “We are excited about the program and the children seem to be excited to learn when they are supposed to call 911,” said Dana Swims, director of 911 in McNairy County. “We believe the first graders are old enough to understand about calling 911.” Swims was proud to say the first graders from Michie School had sent personally made thank you notes to the dispatchers and they have them hung on the wall of McNairy’s 911 office. “We tell the kids when it is okay to call 911 and when they should not call,” said Swims. “We have a good video and a mascot ‘Cell

Phone Sally’ who helps us to teach them.” Sometimes children play with old cell phones and Swims said as long as the battery is still in the phone, it can call 911. Swims said it is a problem when children think they are having fun by making prank calls to 911 and some of the young children do not realize it is wrong. “We make sure the children understand the different circumstances that could come up to cause them to need to make an emergency call,” said Swims. Dispatchers Melissa and Troy Carmack and Stephanie McCullar went

to Michie School and more dispatchers will be involved in the program

this week and next. The dispatchers will give their activity books, color-

ing books and crayons as gifts for participating in the educational program.

Lawsuit claims circumcision ‘robbed’ inmate Associated Press

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — A South Dakota prison inmate is suing the hospital where he was circumcised as a newborn, saying he only recently became aware that he’d undergone the procedure and that it robbed him of his sexual prowess. Dean Cochrun, 28,

is asking for $1,000 in compensatory and punitive damages. He also asks in the lawsuit that his foreskin be restored “in the hopes I could feel whole again,” though he acknowledged that he didn’t expect such a restoration to be anything more than aesthetic. Cochrun, who is im-

prisoned in Sioux Falls on a kidnapping conviction, filed the federal lawsuit Friday against Sanford Hospital. Cochrun claims that an “unknown doctor” at the then-named Sioux Valley Hospital misled his mother to believe that the procedure was medically necessary.

Rubio’s immigration push may provide GOP lift BY DONNA CASSATA Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Florida Sen. Marco Rubio’s push for a Republican version of immigration legislation looks like the answer to the election year prayers of the GOP — and Mitt Romney. Rubio — telegenic son of Cuban exiles and potential vice presidential pick — is pulling together a bill that would allow young illegal immigrants to remain in the United States but denies them citizenship, an initial step in the drawnout, divisive fight over immigration policy and the fate of the 11 million people here illegally. The freshman senator calls his evolving legislation a conservative alternative to the DREAM Act — the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors measure. That Democratic-backed bill, which is overwhelmingly popular with Hispanics, would provide a pathway to citizenship to children in the United States illegally if they attend college or join the military. The measure came close to passage in December 2010 but has languished since then. “We have to come up with an immigration system that honors both our legacy as a nation of laws and also our legacy as a nation of immigrants,” Rubio told The Associated Press on Tuesday. An immigration plan from Rubio, the GOP’s best-known Hispanic, could help Republicans make some headway with the fastest growing minority group and its 21 million eligible voters, many concentrated in the contested presidential battleground states of Florida, New

Mexico, Arizona, Nevada and Colorado. Democrats maintain a significant political advantage with Hispanics, numbers that were only strengthened by the harsh rhetoric from Republican presidential candidates in this year’s primary. Hispanics overwhelmingly backed Barack Obama over Republican presidential nominee John McCain, 67-31 percent, in the 2008 presidential race and they favored Democratic congressional candidates 60-38 percent in 2010, according to exit polling. This year, opinion surveys show Obama and Democrats with a solid edge over Romney and the GOP among Hispanic voters. It’s a reality the likely Republican presidential nominee clearly recognizes. “We have to get Hispanic voters to vote for our party,” Romney told a private fundraiser in Florida on Sunday in which he insisted the GOP needs an alternative to the DREAM Act. He warned that a significant number of Hispanics backing Obama “spells doom for us,” according to NBC News. Rubio, who notably called on his party to tone down the anti-immigrant talk earlier this year, is working on a plan that would allow young illegal immigrants who came to the United States with their parents to apply for non-immigrant visas. They would be permitted to stay in the country to study or work, could obtain a driver’s license but would not be able to vote. They later could apply for residency, but they would not have a special path to citizenship. Rubio said he has not

talked to the Romney campaign about his plan but definitely would. “He’s our nominee and I think it’s important for him to feel comfortable with and be supportive of whatever endeavor we pursue,” the senator said. The 40-year-old freshman lawmaker is looking at unveiling his bill in the coming weeks. The early outlines have drawn interest and skepticism from pro-immigration groups. Rubio’s political motivation also has been questioned, especially since congressional Republicans and Democrats say legislation as ambitious as immigration is unlikely to be done seven months from the election. “Is this really a legislative initiative or a political ploy?” asked Frank Sharry, executive director of America’s Voice. “If it’s about a political ploy, it’s about throwing a lifeline to Romney, rather than throwing a lifeline to the dreamers.” Joaquin Castro, a Democratic member of the Texas legislature and a candidate for the U.S. House, said Rubio must be troubled by the GOP talk. “It must be difficult for a Hispanic Republican to sit there and listen to all of the harsh rhetoric coming from the Republican Party about his community,” Castro said in an interview. Rubio insists that Democrats, who controlled the White House, Senate and House for two years and never completed immigration legislation, are “just panicked about the prospects of losing this issue as a campaign tool.” Brent Wilkes, national executive director of the League of United Latin American Citizens, said if it’s Rubio’s bill or nothing, “I think we would have to look pretty hard at the offer because the most important thing for these students, at least initially, is for them to get right with the law and get on with their lives.” But Wilkes cautioned against creating an apartheid-like system in the United States with a permanent group of second-class individuals. President Barack Obama challenged the GOP for opposing changes to immigration while Rubio works on an alternative. “Somehow Republicans want to have it both ways. That looks like hypocrisy to me,” the president said in an interview last week with Telemundo News. Rubio faces a major obstacle in pushing his measure. The Republican Party and its allies remain fiercely divided over immigration policy, a split even more pronounced in an election year.

UK’s first 5 ready for NBA The Associated Press

LEXINGTON, Ky. — Kentucky’s starting lineup of three freshmen and two sophomores did most everything together. Now, they will go their separate ways in the NBA. Freshmen Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Marquis Teague, and sophomores Terrence Jones and Doron Lamb declared for the draft in a nationally televised

news conference Tuesday night. “We made it work,” Jones said. “We all wanted to be there and do it together like we’ve done everything else together.” The group, all clad in similar blue UK golf shirts, came into the season largely untested before ascending to No. 1, winning the Southeastern Conference in dominating fashion and capping an NCAA

tournament run with a 67-59 victory over Kansas in the title game for the school’s eighth championship. “It’s been a great opportunity playing here, I’ll miss this team, the way we played together. We all love each other,” said Davis, who picked up every major player of the year award and is likely the No. 1 pick in June’s draft. “I’m just going to miss this place. We won an NCAA championship

here and did a lot. We all did a lot for this school and I’m going to miss it.” The five join seniors Darius Miller, who is also projected to be drafted, and Eloy Vargas in leaving the program. “This is a players’ first program. I said it three years ago. During the season, it’s about our team. You saw it in this year’s team, they were about Please see KENTUCKY | 9A

Petrino’s former mistress resigns The Associated Press

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The University of Arkansas says the former mistress of fired football coach Bobby Petrino has resigned her position with the program. The school announced in a news release Tuesday evening that Jessica Dorrell had stepped down as the football team’s student-athlete development coordinator. Athletic Director Jeff Long said the decision was mutual and that there are no immediate plans to try to re-fill the job. The university says Dorrell will be paid approximately $14,000 to settle “all matters between the parties.” Petrino was fired last week for not disclosing their affair — a conflict of interest — and Dorrell had been put on paid leave. The revelations about their relationship surfaced after they were involved in a motorcycle accident.

Bain, baseball form perfect Union BY H. LEE SMITH II

GLEN — Trae Bain will continue his true love at the next level. Alcorn Central’s two-sport standout signed a letter of intent on Monday to play baseball at Union University. The Jackson, Tenn., school is moving up to Division II and will play in the Gulf South Conference. It had previously played at the NAIA level. “I think it’s a good fit,” said Bain, a five-year starter for the Golden Bears. “The coaches seemed straight forward and honest.” Bain is hitting .437 (38of-87) with 11 doubles, four homers and 28 RBI. He’s drawn 13 walks while striking out just once. On the hill

he’s registered two wins and a pair of saves. “I think I’ll get a chance to play right away and that’s big,” said Bain. “I could have gone to a bigger school and sat on the bench for a few years.” The son of Dale and Debra Bain also excels in the classroom, where he ranks fourth in a class of 107 and was a finalist for the Wendy’s High School Heisman. He was selected to the Hall of Fame, a Star Student and is a member of the Top Ten. Bain will be a true studentathlete at Union. He’s also receiving an academic scholarship and plans on majoring in Sports Medicine while also dipping into Physical Education.

A five-time All-Division selection, Bain began playing with the varsity team in the seventh grade. During his tenure he’s amassed over 200 hits and blasted 23 home runs, including a walkoff grand slam against rival Corinth this season. Bain was also a standout on the basketball court for the Bears, helping Central reach the North State quarterfinals the past two seasons. He averaged 13.6 points, including 59 3-pointers, last season and finished with 1,433 career points. Now basketball will be a thing of the past. “It’s going to be tough,” said Bain. “It’s already starting to sink in a little bit.” Tuesday’s regular-season

finale at Pine Grove was rained out but the senior still has some work to do. The Bears (8-19, 3-5 Division 1-3A) have qualified for the playoffs and will open play against Cleveland East Side or Leland. An All-State selection following the 2011 campaign, Bain will cap his prep career in the Mississippi Association of Coaches All-Star Game to be held at Trustmark Park in Pearl on June 2. Continuing to pursue his true love is something Trae’s late grandmother, Peggy Bain, would have enjoyed. “She loved baseball more than anything,” said Bain. “And watching her grandkids play was a huge deal for her.”

Guillen back in dugout after suspension The Associated Press

MIAMI — Ozzie Guillen emerged from the clubhouse tunnel three hours before game time Tuesday, saw the horde of media waiting for him in the dugout and uttered an expletive in surprise. He’s back. Returning from a five-game suspension imposed after he praised Fidel Castro, Guillen rejoined the team for Tuesday night’s game against the Chicago Cubs.

“I feel great,” said Guillen, seated in the dugout and facing about 50 reporters and cameramen three hours before the first pitch. “It’s nice to come back and do what I love to do.” The talkative, opinionated, profane Guillen said he won’t change — but then added he’ll steer clear of certain subjects from now on. He also said he’ll be more careful about what he says around people he doesn’t know well.

“Obviously talking about some issues is not my business,” he said. “My business is to talk about baseball. ... I learned a very tough lesson. You learn from mistakes. I hope this mistake makes me a better person.” No demonstrations were evident at the ballpark Tuesday, and there was no reaction when Guillen took his seat at the dugout railing just before the game. But in the fourth inning, a

fan in the second deck stood, waved his arms and screamed several times, “Ozzie, you’re an ...” while finishing the line each time with an R-rated synonym for “jerk.” Guillen’s comments about Castro in a magazine interview outraged angered Cuban Americans, who make up a large segment of the Marlins’ fan base.

Spring football may have new look in future The Associated Press

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Michigan facing another school in a spring game at the Big House? Probably not. Wolverines coach Brady Hoke working with Eastern Michigan’s Ron English to put together a plan to benefit both team during a day or two

of spring drills? That could happen someday. When the American Football Coaches Association board meets in Arizona next month, possibly proposing NCAA rule changes that would allow schools to scrimmage or practice against other programs during the spring is expected to be on the agenda.

“Based upon the buzz about this within the profession the last couple of months, I’m sure we’ll be talking about this when we meet,” AFCA president and Harvard coach Tim Murphy told The Associated Press. “I think the NFL model would be a good way to do it, going through drills with another team. If you

wanted to hold a scrimmage, you could do it, but it would just be more complex. “It wouldn’t be unprecedented, though, because other college sports do it.” Basketball, soccer and field hockey are the Division I sports allowed to have scrimPlease see FOOTBALL | 9A

each other,” coach John Calipari said. “When the season is over, it’s about moments like this.” The departures mean only freshman Kyle Wiltjer remains from the rotation with a new class of highly touted recruits joining Calipari next season. Calipari said he had never watched the final game of a season until this one. Kidd-Gilchrist appeared emotional for a few moments at the podium and later said his mother, Cindy Richardson, wanted him to return to school since he was one of the youngest players in Division I after turning 18 in September. Instead, he has other plans for her. “I want to spoil my mom. I think I’m going to spoil my mom to death. That’s one thing I’m looking forward to,” said KiddGilchrist, who plans to buy her a watch for starters. “I’m ready, I think. I’m ready for anything that comes my way now.” Teague, the point guard, seemed to be the only player who might be a questionable first-round pick in Calipari’s effort to match his 2010 draft class that saw five players go in the first round led by the No. 1 overall pick, John Wall. Teague said he felt like he did enough to be drafted in the first round by leading a “great team that’s kind of like an NBA team” to a national championship. “This is my lifelong dream to play in the NBA and to be doing it with these guys, we’re all just making the decision together just makes it that much more special,” Teague said. “I love every day knowing I played with these guys and that not being an option any more is tough to deal with. But we all decided we needed to move on, so this is something we’ve got to do.” Lamb said he really had only one goal after both he and Jones were projected first-round picks last season. “The reason I stayed was to win a national championship,” Lamb said. “Me and Terrence we talked together last year and we decided to come back this year to win a national championship and we did that. Our dreams came true.” Wiltjer, who said earlier this year the thought of his teammates leaving was “scary,” and the rest of the bench made up just 6 percent of the total minutes played this season. But the group will quickly be getting help as Calipari closes in on his fourth straight No. 1 recruiting class. Kentucky already signed Willie Cauley, Alex Poythress and Archie Goodwin in the early period. Top prospect Nerlens Noel committed to the Wildcats on national television last week by shaving the school’s initials in the back of his signature flat top hairstyle. Transfer Ryan Harrow is expected to take over as point guard with Wiltjer, giving the Wildcats the same projected starting mix of two sophomores and three freshmen. The team is in the hunt for a few of the remaining top prospects who have until May 16 to make their final decisions. All of Kentucky’s new players will be thrust into major roles because with the departures, the Wildcats will lose 93.3 percent of their points, 94.5 percent of their individual rebounds and 96.2 percent of their assists. Meanwhile, this group is about to begin their new lifestyle, something Davis couldn’t help laughing about when he was reminded of his upcoming payday. “I actually haven’t thought about that yet. That’s right, I am going to be rich,” Davis said. “You’ve just got to manage your money well. Good thing is I like math. So I should be fine.”

Braves knock out Santana, beat Mets The Associated Press

ATLANTA — The Atlanta Braves finally beat the New York Mets, taking advantage of shaky defense to hand Johan Santana the shortest start of his career in a 9-3 victory Tuesday night. Tyler Pastornicky’s two-run double highlighted a five-run

second that finished off Santana. Randall Delgado (2-0) won it for the Braves, who lost their first four games against the Mets this season. Two costly errors — Jason Bay dropped a fly ball, Ike Davis made a wild throw — led to a pair of unearned runs against Santana (0-2), who allowed just

one run in his first two games. He was lifted after 1 1-3 innings, finished off by Jason Heyward’s run-scoring single that made it 6-0. Santana had never gone less than three innings in his previous 265 starts. The night turned cool and blustery after an afternoon storm front moved through At-

lanta, forcing the teams to use the indoor cages for batting practice. Delgado went 51⁄3 innings and allowed three runs and seven hits. Kris Medlen got out of a jam in the sixth by striking out David Wright, pitching 22⁄3 scoreless innings.

spring practice.” Stoops brought up the major obstacle that might stop the changes from happening. “My main concern always this time of year is having my full squad healthy, ready to enter the summer, to continue to build strength, speed and get ready for the year when we do play people,” Stoops said. Nebraska Athletic Director and former football coach Tom Osborne said the changes would alter the objectives of spring ball by competitive coaches who would spend too much time preparing for the opponent.

“Spring ball is best used for development,” Osborne said. NCAA rules allow football programs to have 15 spring practices — including a spring game and up to two additional scrimmages — and eight of the 12 sessions can include tackling. Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe, who is on the AFCA board of trustees, and Duke’s David Cutcliffe both said their peers have been talking about wanting to be able to scrimmage or practice against other schools for at least a few decades. Michigan State Athletic Director Mark Hollis said foot-

ball coach Mark Dantonio discussed it a couple years ago at a Big Ten coaches meeting. Hollis said the Big Ten and MidAmerican Conference could perhaps form a partnership to cut down costs if scrimmages or practices against other schools were permitted. “That’s an old idea, that’s a good idea, but that’s very difficult to get the NCAA to move in those regards,” Cutcliffe said. “Your best chance is if you can prove you can make some money because then you have a chance for the presidents and the ADs to vote in favor of it.”


mages or exhibition games before their first game. NCAA rules strictly prohibit football programs from practicing or scrimmaging against other schools during spring ball. Alabama’s Nick Saban and Oklahoma’s Bob Stoops are among the coaches who would rather leave spring ball just the way it is. “You can really focus on trying to develop unknowns in your players, which I think is really important,” Saban said. “I think that’s the real value of

edly during an extraordinary news conference a week ago, then began the suspension only five games into his tenure with the team. Contrite but upbeat, Guillen said he spent his idle week at home in Miami and watched Marlins games on TV, which he found weird. He said he visited with Cuban exiles and was moved by the

stories they told. “The most difficult thing was looking directly in their eyes,” Guillen said in Spanish. “One gentleman spent 26 years in prison. Tears came out. I asked for their forgiveness. I still feel bad because I injured many persons.” He said he hopes to repair damage done by winning games and being active in community outreach.

‘Rock’owner: Race a success Kasey Kahne took the checkered flag in Sunday’s Camping World Truck Series race at Rockingham Speedway, but the real winners were track owner Andy Hillenburg and the people in the Rockingham area who worked hard to bring NASCAR racing back to the Rock. An impressive crowd estimated at 27,500 was on hand to participate in the first NASCAR race at Rockingham since 2004, when the track was closed and its remaining Cup race moved to Texas Motor Speedway. Hillenburg told reporters after the race that although he doesn’t have the final numbers, he considers the weekend a big success. “As a promoter, I still want to go and do better, but I am very proud of our efforts,” he said. “It was a team effort, and I feel like we did the best that we could do based on the knowledge that we had. I also feel confident in saying that if I get a second chance from NASCAR, I can do even better.”

Hall of Fame nominees named

Biffle: ‘This year is my year’


reg Biffle’s rebound appears to be for real. The veteran driver, who hasn’t performed up to expectations in recent seasons, broke a 49-race losing streak on Saturday at Texas Motor Speedway, and has led the Cup points standings since the third race of the season, at Las Vegas. In the eyes of many observers, Biffle’s victory validated his position atop the points standings. For others, it raised the possibility, although it’s still very early in the season, that he could become the first driver ever to win a championship in all three of NASCAR’s elite divisions – Camping World Trucks, Nationwide and Cup. Biffle won the truck title in 2000 and the Nationwide crown two years later. But as Biffle pointed out in his winner’s interview at Texas, where he defeated five-time Cup champion Jimmie Johnson in a late-race duel, the higher a driver advances up the NASCAR ladder, the more difficult it is to win races and championships. “When I moved from the truck series to Nationwide, it was a huge step,” Biffle said. “It was much, much harder. And when I moved from the Nationwide to the Cup Series, I had no idea that the competition was going to be what it was. “I knew it was going to be hard. But man, it’s tough, and there are a lot of great drivers in this sport and a lot of good equipment. ... But this year is my year, so I’m going to keep after it all the way to Homestead.”

Biffle has come close in the past. In 2005, he led the Cup circuit in race victories with six, and tied his Roush Fenway Racing teammate Carl Edwards for second in the championship standings, 35 points behind winner Tony Stewart. He was third in 2008, but the next three seasons saw him win just two races – at Pocono and Kansas in 2010 – and finish outside the top five in points. Midway through last year, Biffle’s team got a new crew chief as Matt Puccia replaced Greg Erwin. The results began to change almost immediately. Like Biffle, Puccia’s career has seen him make stops in all three NASCAR divisions, and like Biffle, he’s a longtime member of Jack Roush’s race team. Saturday’s victory at Texas was his first in the elite Cup series. “Jack gave me this opportunity in the Truck Series and I got my first win with Roush in 2008 with Erik Darnell,” Puccia said. “It’s been a great progression with the company.” Also like Biffle, he’s looking forward to the upcoming stretch of races on the schedule. “We’ve got some good race tracks coming,” he said. “We’ve got Kansas and Richmond and Talladega and Darlington, and as we look ahead there’s not one race I can’t say we can’t go and run good and be in contention to win every week. “So we’re looking forward to getting going the next part of this little stint here.”

Bristol owner cautioned in addressing attendance woes Speedway Motorsports Chairman and Bristol Motor Speedway owner Bruton Smith is trying to put the action genie back in the bottle at Bristol, but several drivers are saying “not so fast” to his plans to somehow alter the track in an attempt to bring back the beating and banging that fans say they miss. The recent Food City 500 played out before a 160,000-seat grandstand that was barely half full, setting off a debate over the drop-off from years of consecutive sellouts. Some say the surface, reconfigured in 2007, eliminated the onegroove racing that led to the large use of bump-and run tactics, and fans don’t like the side-by-side racing that ensued. Others say the slumping economy, coupled with the high cost of attending races, is to blame. Jeff Gordon is among those urging Smith to proceed with caution. “I think you have to be very, very careful,” Gordon said in his weekly press conference, at Texas Motor Speedway, adding that the track’s issues might be more related to the Car of Tomorrow than the racing surface. He said that with the new car, bump-and-run at Bristol might not be practical. “This car punches a big hole in the air, and I’m not so sure we’d be able to get to the guy’s rear bumper,” he said. “We might see more single-file racing.” Gordon said he polled his Twitter followers, and a majority of them said the racing surface wasn’t a big issue. “My Twitter poll was that gas prices and hotel prices and the economy are the biggest reason why people are saving their money to come to the night race there, and not able to travel as much as they used to and be able to incur some of the expenses that they used to,” he said. “They’re going to save up for a Saturday night race.”

As caddy, Hamlin gets taste of Masters golf tournament Denny Hamlin went from being one of the stars of one sport to being a fan of another athlete during last week’s Masters golf tournament in Augusta, Ga. His friend and fellow “Dukes of Hazzard” enthusiast Bubba Watson had Hamlin caddy for him during a preliminary event at Augusta, then went out and scored a dramatic win in the prestigious golf classic. “Of course that trick shot I taught him on Wednesday paid off on Sunday,” Hamlin joked in reference to the hook shot that Watson launched from the woods that put his ball within easy reach of the cup during the second hole of a sudden-death playoff. “It’s just one of those things where it was an amazing accomplishment for him and his family.” Hamlin said that he and Watson hit it off from the first time they met, on a golf course in Phoenix in 2010. “We’re both lefties,” he said. “We both obviously like racing. I grew up loving ‘The Dukes of Hazzard,’ and he obviously does as well. I don’t know what it is about our personalities, but we seem to get along. It was right from the ‘get go.’” And he admits pulling hard for his friend in the closing round of the Masters. “I was just generally nervous for him on Sunday,” Hamlin said. “I’m nervous because it’s my friend and you hope that the guy does well. It’s just a great feeling. I felt like I won it myself.”

Edwards on ex’s tell-all book: ‘I consider us friends’ Carl Edwards took the high road when asked at Texas Motor Speedway about his portrayal as controlling and self-centered in an autobiography by his former girlfriend, Amanda Beard. Edwards, now married to another woman and the father of two children, said he really didn’t know what to make of Beard’s opinions. “I guess all I can say is that I

considered us friends and I didn’t realize that she had all those problems,” he said. “I would have done anything in the world to have helped her with those. As always, regardless of what she writes in her books and things like that, if she ever needs something from me, I would be there to help her out. I don’t know what else to say about that.”

Pioneering African-American driver Wendell Scott and NASCAR’s first treasurer and secretary Anne B. France are among the latest five nominees for induction into the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte, N.C. Joining Scott and France are engine builder and car owner Ray Fox, sponsor executive Ralph Seagraves and driver Rusty Wallace. They join 20 nominees who were on the list last year. Five will be selected on May 23. Scott, who died in 1990, is the only AfricanAmerican to compete regularly in the series now known as Sprint Cup. He ran 495 races from 1961-73, winning one pole, at Savannah, Ga., in 1962, and one race, at Jacksonville, Fla., in 1964. He also had 20 top-five and 147 top-10 finishes. His career essentially ended with a grinding crash at Talladega in 1973. Fox won 14 races in NASCAR’s elite series, and fielded cars for drivers including Junior Johnson, Buck Baker and Buddy Baker. Seagraves, as a senior vice president of R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co., helped bring the sponsorship of Reynolds’ Winston brand to NASCAR, and worked with the NASCAR industry to expand the sport. Wallace, who retired from driving in 2005, won 55 Cup races and the 1989 championship.

Stenhouse gets 2nd 2012 win Ricky Stenhouse Jr. continues to show that he’s truly one of NASCAR’s up-andcoming stars. At Texas Motor Speedway, the defending Nationwide Series champion got his second Nationwide victory of the season, and moved to within four points of series leader Elliott Sadler. Stenhouse led three times for 68 laps and held off Cup regulars Paul Menard, Kasey Kahne and Denny Ricky Stenhouse Jr. Hamlin to get his (NASCAR photo) fourth career victory. “I feel a lot better coming into this year, obviously, with the championship from last year,” Stenhouse said. “One thing I do enjoy about this is running up front every week, and we have a shot to win every week. That is all we can do. When we can finish it off like that, that is a positive.”

Where there is mud, there is some good pie Long before I had a cooktop that produced heat when the knob was turned, I had a corner kitchen on the back porch of my parent’s house, a set of pots and pans and the cutest metal kitchen set you ever did see. Most mornings I would drive my Hot Wheel from the back door to my little kitchen (a whole six feet or so), park and go in for a hard day toiling over my little metal stove. This kitchen was sweet: Open to the outdoors on three sides, concrete block “shelves”, a nice mix of Fischer Price kitchenware and castoffs from my Mom’s kitchen (or, ahem, pieces I thieved when I thought she wasn’t looking), a kid-sized table and chairs, mini appliances with doors that actually opened, no grocery or electric bills and no threat of burning the place down. Ah, I miss that kitchen. My main ingredient was mud. And a mean mud pie I could make. Through lots of trial and error and many long

days spent in that kitchen, I perfect the ratio of yard dirt to waKaren Beth ter so that Martin the “batwas Green Queen ter” the perfect consistency. The only thing that made me feel less-than-areal-cook was the fact that to “bake” the pie, I had to set it out in the sun instead of putting it into my little oven. But, sacrifices we make. I think my creativity in the kitchen really started then and there. With mud, folks. I would collect grass, leaves, pebbles, who knows what else and either make a special “recipe” or decorate the end result. From time to time, I would manage to sneak out of my Mom’s kitchen with a cup of milk or something “real” to add to my creations. Those were the times I really felt like I was whipping up something clever. That kitchen and those

pies were a good while ago and although I no longer cook with dirt and I certainly no longer use milk, I do still love to whip up clever things in the kitchen. And while I normally fly by the seat of my pants and make up my own concoctions, I know a good recipe when I see one. And this one is a tried and true, far too good not to share. Like those pots and pans and the cups of milk from my Mom’s kitchen, this is a recipe I swiped from a vegan blog I admire. Before you scroll down and read the ingredient list, know this: No one I’ve made this for has ever not liked it. It is a decadent treat, something to be savored after a delicious meal with a nice cup of coffee. And yet, it actually has fruit in it that delivers a nice punch of healthy fats, no refined sugar and no eggs or wheat. So, as far something with almost a full cup of maple syrup goes, it is at least fairly healthy. And, it is the favorite

dessert of my chocoholic Aunt Jane. I’m in trouble if I don’t show up at holidays with this in my goodie bag (and a couple of random times throughout the year). That’s saying a lot. This is a no-bake deal that is meant to be served cold. Perfect for summer, I’d say. And although you might not be able to find some of these ingredients at the regular supermarket, you can get the harder-tofind ones at Vitality Health Foods on Shiloh Road. So, here it is, with a little twist on the name (I couldn’t leave it completely in tact). Ode to the Mud Pie (recipe from No Bake Chocolate Crust: ■ 2 cups pecans ■ 1/4 cup cocoa powder ■ 2 tablespoon coconut oil ■ 1/4 cup pure maple syrup ■ 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract ■ 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt Chocolate Avocado

Mousse: ■ 2 cups avocado flesh (approximately 3 small avocados), pitted and scooped out ■ 1/3 cup almond milk ■ 2/3 cup pure maple syrup ■ 1 tablespoon smooth peanut butter ■ 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder ■ 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt ■ 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract ■ 1 cup + 2 tablespoons bittersweet (not milk) chocolate or carob chips, melted ■ 1/4 cup cocoa powder, sifted if clumpy For the crust, lightly oil a deep pie pan. In a food processor, pulse the pecans until crumbly. You still want them a bit chunky so be sure not to over process. Add the rest of the crust ingredients and pulse until just mixed. Scoop mixture onto prepared pan and press down firmly and evenly with slightly wet spatula. Pop into freezer to set while making the mousse. Place all mousse ingre-

dients EXCEPT CHOCOLATE CHIPS into food processor. Process until smooth. Melt your chocolate chips in the microwave or on the stovetop and add to food processor mixture. Process until smooth. Remove crust from freezer and put mousse on top of crust. Smooth out as much as possible and then place in the freezer for 2 hours to firm. Once firm, remove from freezer and allow to sit at room temperature for 5-10 minutes before serving. Should you have leftovers (highly unlikely), wrap in freezer wrap and store in freezer in sealed container. NOTE: This torte should be served chilled as it gets too soft if left at room temperature for too long.

habits,” she said. “Not only do we have a more nutritious diet, we save money, and our impact on the planet is lessened. It also connects us to the earth in a really powerful way, and I think that nurtures an appreciation for the environment that I hope causes my children to be better stewards of the planet.” Community garden projects have the potential to improve the health of Mississippians. “Many fruits and vegetables we buy at the grocery store must be harvested before they are fully ripe so they can travel the long distances without ruining,” Twiner said. “Fruits and vegetables have more nutrients and are better for us if they are allowed to ripen on the vine.” The act of gardening itself is a way to be active. “Everyone knows the benefits of regular exercise, and gardening is exercise,” Kelly said. Gardening can be economical, especially if it is a community effort where time and resources are pooled. “People say eating healthy is expensive,” Twiner said. “But you can grow your own fruits and vegetables, and it doesn’t have to be expensive.” Even for a beginning gardener, starting a community garden is not that complicated, Lindsey said. “Our garden came together because those who know how to garden shared their expertise

MISSISSIPPI STATE — Community gardens have gained popularity in Mississippi recently because they can improve health and environmental sustainability. “The economy is one reason we have seen a resurgence in interest,” said Lelia Scott Kelly, consumer horticulture specialist with the Mississippi State University Extension Service and Alcorn County native. “People are staying home more and looking for ways to cut costs and still maintain their quality of life. Teaming up with neighbors and friends to create a community garden helps cut production costs and is an attractive alternative to the high costs of grocery-store produce.” Cary Lindsey, an undergraduate student at MSU and mother of three, was looking for a way for her family to improve their health and be less dependent on the supermarket for their food. “I read Lester Brown’s “Plan B 4.0” for a class, and it really got my attention,” Lindsey said. “All of a sudden, recycling wasn’t enough for me anymore. The book really made me think about what my family could do to remove ourselves from the grocery store, have a more positive effect on the environment and live a healthier lifestyle.” Lindsey convinced her landlord to allow her to

start a community garden project on the site of a neighboring house that had been torn down. She invited individuals with varying levels of gardening knowledge to join the project. They built 12 raised beds with materials salvaged from a demolished building and shared tools, such as drills and shovels. Community gardens allow participants to control the quality, freshness and availability of the fruits and vegetables they grow, Kelly said, making a healthier lifestyle more accessible and affordable. “People in rural areas will increase the types of fruits and vegetables they have access to simply because a grocery store is only going to stock items that sell quickly,” said Ann Twiner, MSU Extension health agent in Sunflower County who manages a youth garden project. People are also more likely to eat foods they grow. “The same is true for kids,” Twiner said. “When they put their hands on it, put the seeds in the soil, water the plants and take care of the plants, they are much more likely to eat the fruits and vegetables produced.” Lindsey also found this to be true and said gardening is influencing her kids in more than one way. “I am excited to see how growing their own food impacts their eating

Mandevilla vines give gardening possibilities

(Photo by Gary Bachman)

Mandevilla flowers are displayed against dark green, leathery foliage. Mandevilla blooms from early summer through first frost.

Mandevilla grows and flowers best when planted in full sun. It will tolerate partial shade in hot locations, such as southfacing walls. Make sure the soil in the planting bed is rich with organic matter to ensure good drainage, but don’t let the soil dry out too much.

Coming in the Sunday Daily Corinthian: Spring Home Improvement Special Edition

If you’re thinking about what you want your porch or deck to look like this summer, consider how you can use Mandevilla, a vining plant best known for its showy of Gary displays summerBachman time flowers. Southern You can Gardening find these plants in red, pink and white at garden centers. Flowers are displayed against a backdrop of dark green, leathery foliage. Leaves can be quite large — up to 8 inches long. Some selections have smaller leaves. The plants are sometimes sold as Dipladenia, which rhymes with gardenia. Flowering begins in the early summer and continues through frost in the fall. Mandevilla is considered a tender plant that requires protection when temperatures fall below 40 degrees. This plant is hardy through zone 9, which is good news in the coastal counties. Mandevilla is usually killed back by fall frosts, but it may grow back from the root system the following spring. Most gardeners simply treat Mandevilla as a flowering annual. Mandevilla grows and flowers best when planted in full sun. It will tolerate partial shade in hot locations, such as south-facing walls. Make sure the soil in the planting bed is rich with organic matter to ensure good drainage, but don’t let the soil dry out too much. Mandevilla can tolerate some droughty conditions, but it requires supplemental irrigation for extended periods of drought. Mandevilla is a great choice for growing in containers on the porch or patio. This is a popular planting method in areas with cold winters.

Mandevilla is a great choice for growing in containers on the porch or patio. This is a popular planting method in areas with cold winters. When the cold winds start to blow, gardeners simply bring the container inside for protection. If it is placed in a window with enough light, the Mandevilla makes a fine houseplant for the winter months. Because Mandevilla is a vining plant, you must provide support for the plant to scramble and climb. You can make your own supports from hardware cloth, plastic mesh or other materials that give the plants a surface to scramble on. You can hang the mesh between two stakes for a simple design. If you want something more elaborate, you can design a trellis from thin strips of wood secured in a vertical and horizontal crisscross pattern. If you don’t provide support, Mandevilla could be considered an odd choice for a ground cover. Mandevilla is very tolerant to pruning. With careful pruning, you can train the plant to grow in a shrub-like form. Flowers are produced on new growth, so there is little worry about pruning too much and removing the season’s blooms. Mandevilla is a fastflowering vine that can quickly cover a garden with beautiful, colorful flowers or mask an ugly area in your landscape.

Building better burgers You can grill a great burger using beef, but why stop there? ’Bello burger

BY JOE BONWICH McClatchy-Tribune News Service


e’d have liked to provide some burger-making tips to coincide with the start of grilling season, but as everyone knows, this year that ship sailed with La Nina. Nonetheless, we’ve been Àipping up a storm at the grill, making burgers from a variety of meats. Our ¿rst suggestion: Use highquality, relatively low-fat beef, but add some fat. Putting herb butter inside the uncooked patty makes the interior moist and adds Àavor. Our second suggestion: Skip the beef and go with bison for a full, meaty Àavor. Bison has about a third less fat than 90 percent lean beef, however, so it, too, can bene¿t greatly from some added ingredients. We recommend adding one egg for every pound of ground bison. For our third and fourth suggestions, consider dropping the meat altogether. Make a burger out of tuna or take advantage of the fact that a portobello mushroom cap looks like burger patty.

Hamburgers with herb butter Yield: 4 servings 4 teaspoons finely chopped fresh herbs (any combination of parsley, chives, basil, oregano and tarragon) 1⁄2 clove garlic, minced Freshly ground black pepper 1⁄4 cup (1⁄2 stick) salted butter, at room temperature 11⁄2 pounds ground sirloin, round or chuck Coarse salt 4 slices pancetta, optional 4 slices white Cheddar cheese, optional 4 hamburger buns 2 tablespoons melted butter

’Bello burger Tuna burger with wasabi slaw

Place herbs, garlic, 1»4 teaspoon black pepper and softened butter in a small mixing bowl; stir or beat to combine thoroughly. Place on a piece of plastic wrap or parchment paper, roll into a cylinder and twist the ends to compact the mixture. Refrigerate until ¿rm. Cut the herbed butter into 4 slices. Divide the ground beef into 4 portions. Pat each portion of beef into a thick patty. Press an indentation into the center of the patty, ¿lling it with a slice of herbed butter. Mold the beef to enclose the butter completely. Sprinkle burgers with salt and pepper to taste. Preheat grill to high. When ready to cook, brush oil on the grill grate. Grill the pancetta, if using, until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels. Place the burgers on the hot grate. Grill the burgers until cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes per side for medium. If using cheese and/or pancetta, place a slice of each on each burger after you’ve Àipped it, pancetta ¿rst. Brush the buns with the melted butter and toast on the grill for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Assemble the burgers as desired. Bison burger

Yield: 4 servings cup balsamic vinegar cup soy sauce cup plus 1 teaspoon olive oil, divided 3 cloves garlic, minced 4 portobello mushroom caps (about 5 inches in diameter) 1⁄2 medium roasted red bell pepper, stemmed, skinned and seeded 1⁄3 cup mayonnaise 1 pinch ground red (cayenne) pepper 4 thin slices mozzarella cheese, optional 4 large, crusty rolls, such as kaiser rolls 4 lettuce leaves 4 slices ripe tomato 1⁄4 1⁄4 1⁄4

At least 30 minutes and up to 2 hours before you plan to grill, prepare a marinade by combining the balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, 1»4 cup olive oil and garlic in a medium bowl. Place the mushrooms and the marinade in a plastic bag, shake to coat and let sit at room temperature. Cut roasted red pepper into chunks and place in a food processor or blender. Add mayonnaise, the remaining 1 teaspoon olive oil and cayenne pepper. Process until pureed. Refrigerate. Prepare grill for medium temperature. Drain mushroom caps. Place mushrooms, gill-side down, on the grill. Grill uncovered for 8 to 10 minutes, turning the mushrooms twice. Top each with a cheese slice, if using, after the second turn. Meanwhile, toast the rolls at the edge of the grill. Place the mushrooms on the bottoms of the toasted rolls and top with condiments. Close the sandwiches with the top of the buns. Serve hot.

Tuna burgers with wasabi slaw Yield: 4 servings For the slaw: 2 tablespoons wasabi powder 11⁄2 tablespoons water 1⁄2 cup mayonnaise 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger 1 clove garlic, minced 2 cups finely shredded cabbage or coleslaw mix Kosher salt Freshly ground black pepper For the burgers: 1 pound sushi-grade tuna, cut into 1-inch pieces 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard 1 clove garlic, minced 1 tablespoon finely diced shallots 1 tablespoon finely grated fresh ginger 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest (colored portion of peel) 4 hamburger buns Make the slaw. In a small bowl, mix wasabi powder and water, forming a paste. Add mayonnaise, 1 teaspoon ginger and garlic. Place cabbage in a medium bowl. Add wasabi mayonnaise and toss until evenly coated. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Make the burgers. Place tuna in a food processor and chop until coarsely ground. Do not overprocess: The tuna should be similar to the texture of ground beef. Transfer to a large bowl. Add mustard, garlic, shallots, 1 tablespoon ginger and lemon zest; gently stir to combine. Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions. Being careful not to overwork or compact the meat too much, pat each portion into a patty about 3»4-inch thick. Refrigerate for at least an hour. Preheat a clean grill to medium-high. Open the grill and brush the grates with vegetable oil. Place the burgers on the grill. Close the lid and cook, turning once, until the desired temperature is reached, 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. About 1 minute before the burgers are done, lightly toast the buns. Place each burger on the bottom half of a bun and top with wasabi slaw. Serve immediately.

Bison burgers Yield: 4 servings 1 egg 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce 1 tablespoon minced shallot Salt and freshly ground black pepper 1 pound ground bison 4 hamburger buns Preheat a grill for direct heat. Combine egg and Worcestershire sauce in a bowl; beat with a fork. Stir in shallot and salt and pepper. Add bison. Mix gently and form into four patties. Season again with salt and pepper. Brush oil on the grill grate. Cook burgers over direct heat 4 to 6 minutes per side. Place each patty on a bun, garnish as desired and serve.

Daughter probably realizes mom never wanted her DEAR ABBY: My youngest daughter, “Lizzy,” the sweetest and most conscientious of my children, has been cut off yet again by her mother, “Ruth.” Ruth pressured Lizzy to graduate from high school a year early because she couldn’t date with a child still at home. (Her words.) After graduation, Lizzy was shipped off to another state for college, then abandoned to find her own funding for continued education. Lizzy feels unwanted by her mother and desperately wants to know why. The truth is, Ruth didn’t want that pregnancy in the first place and has held it against Lizzy. The deeper truth is I wanted another child and deliberately got Ruth pregnant. I never

told anyone, even after Ruth divorced me several years later. far as I Abigail As know, she Van Buren has always Dear Abby accepted it as accidental. What I did was wrong, yet I can’t imagine a world without my daughter in it. Lizzy is the only one of my children who has become close to me since the divorce. The others all believe their mother’s lies about me — that I cheated on her, which is the opposite of what really happened. Should I share the truth about her birth with my daughter? I’m not sure because I have always be-

lieved it is a major mistake to admit to a child of any age that their pregnancy was a surprise, let alone that it was unwanted. Two of my siblings weren’t planned, and one of them has become a bitter and distant adult. I want to help my daughter understand and accept her mother’s insane actions and get on with her own life. What should I do? — GUILT-RIDDEN DAD DEAR GUILT-RIDDEN: Lizzy already has a pretty good idea that she wasn’t wanted, and I wouldn’t be surprised if her mother hasn’t told her she was a “surprise” baby. Do not try to expiate your feelings of guilt by telling your daughter what you have told me. That is a discussion you should have

with your confessor, not your child. It may take a therapist to help Lizzy forgive her mother and get on with her life. What you should do is pay for at least half of her therapy and contribute toward her education. DEAR ABBY: My son was recently diagnosed with bone cancer and is currently receiving treatment. We heard about a fundraiser for pediatric cancer being held in our community. We joined the event and have received many donations from family and friends. As much as I want to hand-write thank-you cards, between his treatments, my work schedule and my other kids I can’t find the time. Is an email thank you OK? The

donations have all been made online. — WANTS TO DO THE RIGHT THING DEAR WANTS TO DO THE RIGHT THING: I know you are under a lot of pressure right now. However, please refrain from expressing your gratitude by email. Send short, handwritten, personal notes — a few at a time — to those who gave money, as your schedule permits. It is the proper thing to do, and they will be appreciated. DEAR ABBY: For decades I have been told I look like my mother. The problem is, my mother is ugly! I no longer respond to the comment, preferring to remain silent and just stare at the person instead. Abby, please remind

people that unless the comparison is to an attractive model, opinions should be kept to oneself. — BEAUTIFUL IN MY OWN WAY, RICHMOND, KY. DEAR BEAUTIFUL IN YOUR OWN WAY: I’ll remind them, but it’s possible that you’re overly sensitive. The person could be referring to a family resemblance, your coloring or a mannerism. A diplomatic response would be, “Thank you. Isn’t she a dear?” (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.)

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll be good at the games that get played regularly in your circle. Some of these are actual competitions with rules. Some of them are subconscious games to establish social order. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Wanting and needing to make a change won’t inspire you as much as physical and mental discomfort will. It’s only when your comfort zone becomes a discomfort zone that you will be inspired to make the change. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 18). The world seems to know that you’re serious about getting what you want. You’ll assert yourself and watch the doors open wide. Your strongest financial oppor-

tunities come this month and next. Someone falls for you and falls hard. You’ll bond with people you trust in July and possibly start a business together. Aquarius and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 30, 1, 28 and 18. CELEBRITY PROFILES: Socialite and reality-television star Kourtney Kardashian is an Aries with Mercury and Mars in the fiery sign, as well. These stars show intensity and a certain fearlessness. Her moon in Capricorn indicates tremendous business savvy and a desire to amass concrete assets. The Capricorn influence adds some downto-earth grounding to all that passionate Aries energy.

Horoscopes Everything that is in the world started out as an idea. Yesterday’s Pisces moon favored imagination and flights of fancy. Hopefully, there was something in those dreams that you can act on now, bringing the intangible into a physical form. The moon moves into Aries bringing with it the particular kind of alchemy needed to give form to thought. ARIES (March 21-April 19). Ask for advice and opinions, but don’t be too quick to incorporate everything you hear. Don’t change your ways just to get the right response. You know more than you think you know. TAURUS (April 20May 20). If you listen

closely, you’ll find that people will tell you who you are. They may not even realize they are doing it, but they feel a need for you to be who they want you to be. Resist. Take the time to decide what you think. GEMINI (May 21June 21). A solo effort will be brilliant. You’ll be surprisingly comfortable addressing the needs of the day alone. Maybe you’ll even try harder because you’re not relying on others. CANCER (June 22July 22). You can feel good about many of the things you’ve done in your life. Mentally scan through some of your history, and you’ll bring a wave of happy contentment upon yourself. LEO (July 23-Aug.

22). The authority figures in your life are losing their influence over you. By what standard would you judge your own success if you didn’t have the example put forth by your parents, your boss or anyone else? VIRGO (Aug. 23Sept. 22). You’ll love the way another person sees you. It changes who you think you are, inspires arduous feelings in you and raises you to a state of complete enchantment. LIBRA (Sept. 23Oct. 23). It’s not enough just to mention what you want. You’ll have to bring it up again and again so that people remember. They want to help you, but you have to teach them how. SCORPIO (Oct. 24Nov. 21). You don’t have

to worry about what your loved ones will say about you when you’re not there. People will be as loyal to you as you are to them. Your reputation is growing. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The day starts off scattered, but your mind will get extremely focused once you complete a ritual to focus it. The ritual could be as simple as writing down your top aim and then giving yourself a timeframe in which to accomplish it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll get the vague notion that something needs to be done, followed by a strong instinct as to precisely what that is and who should do it. It’s likely that the “who” is you!
