Jobless rate dips to 8.4 percent BY JEBB JOHNSTON

Unemployment rates across the state continued to moderate in April. Alcorn County’s jobless rate dropped to 8.4 percent from 9.1 percent in March. Mississippi unemployment went from 8.7 percent to 8.3 percent during the same period as all but five counties experienced decreases or no change in the rate. Alcorn County had 79 initial claims for unemployment insurance during the month, down from 92 a year earlier. Continued claims numbered 855, down from 1,440 a year earlier. Regular benefits paid in the county totaled $120,746, down from $255,627 a year ago. The county had 1,310 unemployed, down from 1,770 a year earlier, and 14,170 employed, down from 14,390 a year ago. Prentiss County fared best in the region at 8.3 percent. Tishomingo County was at 9.5 percent and Tippah at 9.8 percent. All three posted decrease from the prior month. Results from Mississippi’s non-farm employment survey,

which is counted by the location of establishments, reported a not seasonally adjusted employment increase of 3,700 over the month but a decrease of 2,500 from one year ago. Industry sectors registering the largest monthly employment gains were leisure & hospitality; trade, transportation & utilities; and manufacturing. The professional & business services sector had the largest over the month employment loss. Across the U.S., regional and state unemployment rates were little changed in April, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Thirty-seven states and the District of Columbia recorded unemployment rate decreases, five states posted rate increases, and eight states had no change, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported last week. Forty-eight states and the District of Columbia registered unemployment rate decreases from a year earlier, while only one state experienced an increase, and one had no change. The national jobless rate was little changed from March at 8.1 percent but was 0.9 percentage point lower than in April 2011.

All proceeds from the annual event goes to the American Cancer Society, and the amount raised this year will be announced later this week. (For more photos, see page 12A)

The Bingo Bunch has some new equipment. The senior citizen group got a chance to test the material at its annual Thursday bingo meeting at Arby’s. The Community Development Council of The Alliance purchased the new equipment for the 60-70 senior adults. “Corinth is a Certified Retirement City and retirees play a big part in the community,”

said Community Development Director Andrea Rose. “We want to get the word out on what we have to offer for senior adults.” To help make retirees feel welcome, included, and connected, The Alliance conducts a meet-and-greet monthly luncheon and speaker program called “Senior Connectors.” Many retirees learn more about their new community Please see BINGO | 2A

Artist Guild holds exhibit

Scouts refurbish court benches



Tennessee oil painter Rennie Herd is the gallery’s featured artist for June. An opening reception with Herd is set for 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the 507 Cruise Street gallery. The exhibit runs through June 27. Herd’s paintings leave no question that she is an animal lover, particularly horses. She said she enjoys painting animals because they “can’t complain.” The collection also includes some country landscapes and portraits. Herd, a resident of White House, Tenn., took up the brush when she entered an oil painting class with a friend at a college. Please see EXHIBIT | 2A

The 'ole courtsquare whittlers' angels are smiling down from the heavens. The wooden benches around the Alcorn County Courthouse are now completely refurbished, thanks to an Eagle Scout project and plenty of volunteer labor sweat from Boy Scouts and their adult leaders. “People have been coming by and telling me how great it is to see this work being done,” said 13-year-old Andy Clausel of Corinth Boy Scout Troop 123 and the young leader working on his Eagle Scout project Saturday afternoon. “There has been some great feedback.” Clausel said he couldn't have completed the task all day Friday and Saturday without the help of Troop 123 as 11 Scouts Please see BENCHES | 2A

The Community Development Council of The Alliance donated new bingo equipment to the Arby’s Bingo Bunch. Bingo program leader Lanell Coln (from left), Community Development Director Andrea Rose, Arby’s Manager Linda Pace and Arby’s Area Manager Masi Carter check out the new equipment prior to the weekly start of the games at Arby’s.


and make new friends through these events. Rose presented a new cage, board, 125 cards and 3,000 markers to the group of behalf of the community development

council. Arby’s Bingo Bunch plays every Thursday from 2:30-4 p.m. The group has grown from six players to almost 70 every week. “They like being here and I like them being here,” said Arby’s Area

manager Masi Carter. “This is a home away from home for them,” said Arby’s Manager Linda Pace. “Every Thursday the parking lot is full and I think that has brought more awareness to what we offer here at Arby’s.”

Lanell Coln, who started the Bingo Bunch, says the bingo day “gives seniors a place to go.” “Playing bingo has brought us all together to also help the community with other events,” said the program leader.


and 10 adult leaders assisted in the project. “I would have never got it done without their help,” added the Scout, who will be an 8th grader at Corinth Middle School next year. The future Eagle Scout's parents, Stephanie and

Bryan Clausel, were two of the adults helping out. Mom is a 25-year educator in the Alcorn School District and Dad is a Scout leader and business owner. Andy will be Eagle II in the family as son Alan Clausel earned his Eagle Scout badge in 2004, also with Troop 123.

The project included replacing all wood with new timber and adding a fresh coat of paint to the new wood and the fixed concrete supports. It took 38 2x4s, 38 2x6s, six gallons of paint “and a bunch of nuts, bolts and washers,” said Stephanie Clausel.

The Magnolia Foundation Board of Directors and staff kindly express our appreciation to our generous sponsors, participants and volunteers for their unwavering support of our annual Dr. Mark S.

The Magnolia Regional Health Center Foundation, Inc. provides charitable support to MRHC and similar non-profit organizations in Alcorn County in order to improve the health and wellbeing of our community. Sponsorships such as these are vital to the continuance of our mission.

To help fund the project, Andy will be installing “in honor” and “in memory” plaques on the benches. There have already been 10 donors to the cause, each with a great memory of family time sitting around courtsquare, said Stephanie. “We've heard a lot of good stories around these benches,” she added. (Want to give a donation toward the courtsquare bench project in honor or in memory of someone? Call Stephanie Clausel at 662415-9653 and she'll share how to help her son's Eagle Scout project.)

“I could have been in watercolors. It just so happened that oil painting was open,” said Herd. “We didn’t learn a whole lot at that first class, but we really had a good time. We did learn how to buy oil paint, oil brushes and canvas.” She enjoys getting together and painting with friends on a regular basis. She paints with a group in Hendersonville, Tenn., under the guidance of portrait artist Jennifer Emery Simpkins. Herd had horses for many years, and they are one of her favorite subjects to paint, along with pets. One painting in the exhibit is of singer Naomi Judd’s farm,

which is visible from the Natchez Trace Parkway in Leiper’s Fork, Tenn. Herd has family in the Corinth area and has had some pieces hanging in the gallery for a few years. While in town on a recent visit, she snapped some photos for possible future paintings. She plans to do a painting of the Fillmore Street Chapel, and an old police car parked on property along U.S. Highway 45 caught her eye. Herd does some commissioned pieces, but many of her paintings go to family members. “I just do it for fun,” she said. “If I did it for money, I would be in the poor house.” Regular gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

Prentiss officers involved in pursuit BY BRANT SAPPINGTON bsappington@

A high-speed pursuit that began in Itawamba County passed through Prentiss County twice before ending with the suspect crashing his vehicle on the Natchez Trace near Tupelo. Prentiss County Sheriff Randy Tolar said his officers became involved when the chase entered the county from Itawamba. They traveled back out of the county and then back into Prentiss, where they exited onto the parkway. “Our officer assisted with the pursuit until it terminated near Tupelo when the driver made an evasive move to avoid spike strips and lost control, flipping several times. He was taken to the hospital in Tupelo and later released,” said the sheriff. Itawamba County authorities told WTVA the chase began when the

“Our officer assisted with the pursuit until it terminated near Tupelo ...” Randy Tolar Prentiss County sheriff driver, a 17-year-old juvenile, fled from a deputy who attempted to stop the vehicle for not having a license plate. Itawamba County Sheriff Chris Dickinson said they believe the driver is a suspect in other cases in their county. No charges had been filed in the case at press time. A 14-year-old female passenger in the vehicle exited the vehicle during the chase while they were passing through Prentiss County. Tolar said she was picked up by deputies and turned over to Itawamba County.

Grant funds Prentiss safety checkpoints BY BRANT SAPPINGTON bsappington@

Grant funds are helping local law enforcement improve safety for travelers during the summer with a series of checkpoints aimed at increasing seatbelt usage. The Prentiss County Sheriff’s Department assisted the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers by providing safety checkpoints in the

area of Bay Springs Beach during the Memorial Day holiday weekend. Sheriff Randy Tolar said the department has received a grant as part of the Click-It-or-Ticket campaign to pay for overtime for deputies to operate safety checkpoints. He said the checkpoints in the Bay Springs area are something they do each year to assist the Corps of Engineers and

improve safety for those visiting the popular recreation areas. “We are helping them ensure the safety and welfare of those coming to the beach and making sure everyone is in compliance with their rules and state law,” he said. Tolar said the goal of these and all checkpoints is to save lives. “It’s all about safety and seat belt awareness,” he said.

2012 Legislative Session wrap-up BY NICK BAIN The 2012 Regular Session of the Mississippi Legislature brought many historic changes to the Magnolia State. Following concludes my discussion from last week’s column on some of the new laws that were passed during this 2012 Legislative Session.

Pro-business, pro-economic growth Several bills were brought forward this session which supported Mississippi businesses’. The Inventory Tax Reform, and the Mississippi Small Business Regulatory Flexibility Act, are two laws that I am proud to say I supported. The Inventory Tax Reform bill (SB 2934) increases the income tax credit authorized for the ad valorem tax paid on inventory starting in 2014. “Raw materials” and “worksin-process” are now qualified to be eligible for the inventory tax credit. The existing $5,000 credit increases to $10,000 in 2014, then $15,000 in 2015. For the 2016 taxable year and each taxable year thereafter, the tax credit of the taxpayer shall be the lesser of the amount of the ad valorem taxes paid on inventory or the amount of the income tax liability. The Inventory Tax Reform measure is considered especially significant for those areas, like Alcorn County, on the periphery of the state, because our sister states heretofore have enjoyed a significant tax advantage over Mississippi businesses. Senate Bill 2398 (SB 2398) creates the Mississippi Small Business Regulatory Flexibility Act. This bill establishes a volunteer committee comprised of 12 people from associations of various businesses throughout the state. This committee is charged with reviewing regulations put out by various state agencies that affect small businesses. SB 2398 requires each agency to determine whether any proposed rules by the agency affect small business and prepare an economic impact statement. Enactment of this bill allows the committee to file a written petition with an agency to oppose all or part of a regulation that has a negative impact on small business.

Distinctive license plates Each year the Legislature allows for specific distinctive license plates to be issued. This year, upon my initiation, the Legislature created license plates for Alcorn Central High School, Biggersville High School, Corinth High School, and Kossuth High School. Each school directly receives $24 for each tag purchased.

Readers express views on Social Security taxation STARKVILLE — The first angry phone call from a reader came a little after 6 a.m. on Wednesday morning. Other communications — emails, more phone calls and messages, and a text or two — would follow. Here’s why the readers felt the need — in varying degrees of intensity and courtesy — to tell me why they disagreed with one point in my most recent column. In that column, I sought to make the case that taxing and spending should be the focus of the 2012 presidential and congressional elections based on the fact that over the next 25 years, some 77 million Americans — the vaunted “Baby Boomers” — will begin drawing Social Security checks, collecting Medicare benefits and receiving long-term care under Medicaid. That fact, in concert with the fact that there are already 67.3 million Americans who are dependent on taxpayers for food, shelter, income, education, health care and other support,

seems clear enough. Entitlement programs now account for some 70 percent of Sid Salter all federal Columnist spending. The third leg of the tripod upon which I tried to build my argument was the fact that some 49.5 percent of all Americans pay no federal income tax. To explain how that number can exist, I sought to quantify just what demographics aren’t paying federal income taxes. First, I cited those with who pay no income tax because they don’t earn income sufficient to incur income tax either through lack of earnings or low earnings combined with standard tax deductions and exemptions. Then, I cited what this group of displeased readers cited as the offending paragraph: “Social Security benefits are exempt from taxation, which accounts for another 22 percent of

senior Americans who don’t pay federal income taxes. Earned income child credits and child care credits exempt another 15 percent of those who don’t pay federal income tax from the tax rolls.” Readers didn’t just tell me I was wrong, they were angry about it. They wanted me to know in no uncertain terms that they paid taxes for their Social Security benefits. Most callers weren’t happy about that fact. The truth is that most Social Security recipients don’t pay income taxes. Like it or not, the Internal Revenue Service says: “If Social Security benefits were your only income for 2010, your benefits are not taxable and you probably do not need to file a federal income tax return. If you received income from other sources, your benefits will not be taxed unless your modified adjusted gross income is more than the base amount for your filing status.” Those base amounts are $32,000 for married

couples filing jointly and $25,000 for single or head of household filers. The Social Security Administration says that about one-third of all Social Security recipients will pay some tax on their benefits -- but only if they have other provisional income that is combined with their benefits to increase their adjusted gross income above the base amounts. Now, gentle readers, there is my mea culpa. Some Social Security recipients — about one-third — do pay income taxes. Two-thirds don’t. But with the crush of Baby Boomer recipients poised to swell the ranks of Social Security recipients, one can also expect a corresponding increase in the number of non-income tax paying recipients. Where does that leave us in the 2012 elections? Same conclusion as my last column: That the 2012 federal election debate should center on taxing and spending. (Sid Salter is a syndicated columnist.

HWY 9N funding As you know, Toyota built a plant in Union County several years ago. One condition Toyota placed on the State was an access road to the North. Gov. Barbour conceded to this and promised the manufacturer the completion of Hwy 9N, which would reach into the extreme portions of Northeast Mississippi. This road would give Alcorn County a quicker and more direct route to the plant in Blue Springs, thus opening up the possibility for suppliers to Toyota to locate here. As mentioned, Gov. Barbour agreed to funding this project and had $40 million in bonds issued to begin. During the 2012 Legislative Session there was a move affront to terminate this project and place the funds elsewhere. The bill was HB 791. Rep. Bubba Carpenter and I offered amendments on the house floor that would have killed the bill. Both amendments narrowly lost. However, our efforts opened up a discussion of this project and its importance to this region. What followed was the formation of a coalition spearheaded by the Legislative Delegation, supervisors, and various local economic developers from the region. This coalition came together and worked for the good of the region, and because of this effort HB 791 died and the $40 million to begin the HWY 9N project remains intact. (Nick Bain is state representative for District 2, representing Alcorn County. He can be contacted at: or 662-287-1620.)

Prayer for today Loving God, make us aware that in all circumstances your hand will guide us and you will provide the strength we need to face each day. Amen.

How conservative editor purged the Arabists After taping John Stossel’s show on May 16 in New York, the Mrs. and I took the 10 a.m. Acela back to Washington. Once we had boarded the train, who should come waddling up the aisle but Bill Kristol. The Weekly Standard editor seemed cheerful, and we chatted about the surge in Mitt Romney’s popularity and prospects. I did not ask what he had been doing in New York, but thanks to the website Mondoweiss, I found out. Kristol was there for a May 15 “debate” with Jeremy Ben-Ami of J Street, the pro-Israel organization, at B’nai Jeshurun synagogue on the Upper West Side. After listening to Kristol, writes Phil Weiss, “I am still reeling.” “Kristol was treated like royalty and came off as ... a Republican Party warlord,” bragging “about how all the hostile elements to Israel inside the Republican Party were purged over the last 30 years -- (and) no one (now) dared to question the power of the Israeli lobby.” “The big story in the Republican Party over the last 30 years, and I’m very happy about this,” said Kristol, is the “eclipsing” of the George H.W. Bush-James Baker-Brent Scowcroft realists, “an Arabist old-fashioned Republican Party ... very concerned about relations with Arab states that were not friendly with Israel ... .”

That Bush crowd is yesterday, said Kristol. And not only had the “Arabists” like Pat P r e s i d e n t Buchanan Bush been shoved aside Columnist by the neocons, the “Pat Buchanan/Ron Paul type” of Republican has been purged. “At B’nai Jeshurun,” writes Weiss, “Kristol admitted to playing a role in expelling members of the Republican Party he does not agree with.” These are Republicans you had to “repudiate,” said Kristol, people “of whom I disapprove so much that I won’t appear with them.” “I’ve encouraged that they be expelled or not welcomed into the Republican Party. I’d be happy if Ron Paul left. I was very happy when Pat Buchanan was allowed -- really encouraged ... by George Bush ... to go off and run as a third-party candidate.” Kristol’s point: Refuse to toe the neo-con line on Israel, and you have no future in the Republican Party. Ben Ami seemed equally exultant: “We’ve won the war; we won the war,” he told the audience. Ninetynine percent of Congress now votes almost 100 percent pro-Israel. But Ben Ami appeared nervous about how this

unanimity in the Congress behind Israel had been achieved: “I very seriously and absolutely do believe that a significant percentage of American members of the House of Representatives and the Senate are intimidated on this issue (of Israel). ... They worry about the ramifications of speaking out. ... They are worried about the attacks that they will receive.” Ben Ami said the 50 members who have criticized Israel are courageous, but, “Another 200 are scared to do it.” Haaretz. com reports Ben Ami as saying congressmen “live in fear” of the Israeli lobby. Kristol laughed at this and dared Ben Ami to name them. When Ben Ami brought up the destruction of Palestinian rights on the West Bank and said Hillary Clinton repeatedly raises this issue with Israel, writes Weiss, “Kristol sniggered.” It’s a “myth,” said Kristol, that Arabs care about Palestinians. The Israeli occupation on the West Bank can last for 45 or 60 years more. Bill Kristol on Palestinian rights sounds like Bull Connor talking about Negro rights in Birmingham in 1965. Another source says Kristol predicted that Sen. Joe Lieberman, whose voting record is closer to Socialist Bernie Sanders’ than to conservative Jim DeMint’s, will

be secretary of state in the Romney administration. A former head of the Israel lobby AIPAC describes Lieberman as “the No. 1 pro-Israel advocate and leader in the Congress.” Joe led the cheers for our last three Middle East wars — and has pushed for two more, against Syria and Iran. At the synagogue, Kristol was never asked about his role in the Iraq War that he and his collaborators pressured Bush to wage as “Israel’s fight against terrorism is our fight.” Some 4,500 Americans died in that war, 35,000 were wounded, and 100,000 Iraqis perished, leaving half a million widows and orphans. Result: U.S. influence in the Middle East is at a nadir. Al-Qaida has spread into Pakistan, Iraq, Yemen, Somalia, Syria and North Africa. Now the neocons are worming their way into the Romney camp, dropping us hints on whether John Bolton or Joe Lieberman will be the next secretary of state. Has Gov. Romney imbibed the Kristol Kool-Aid that caused the war and cost the party Congress in 2006 and the presidency in 2008? Hard to believe, but we should find out before November. (Patrick J. Buchanan is the author of “Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?”)

Shipyard gets $2.38 billion Navy contract JACKSON — The U.S. Navy has awarded a $2.38 billion contract to Huntington Ingalls Industries to build an amphibious assault ship. The future USS Tripoli will be built at the company’s Ingalls Shipbuilding division in Pascagoula. The Defense Department announced the contract last last week. The shipyard earlier won a contract to order advance materials. The Tripoli’s sister ship, the future USS America, is currently under construction in Pascagoula. Huntington Ingalls says it will launch the America this summer and deliver it to the Navy next year. The ships are meant to land Marines on shore using helicopters supported by fighter jets, and can serve as small aircraft carriers. The previous class of assault ships could also launch landing craft from an interior dock. The shipyard, with 10,000 employees, is Mississippi’s largest industrial employer. Navy Secretary Ray Mabus announced earlier this month that the ship would be named the Tripoli. It will be the third ship to bear that name, commemorating the capture of Derna in what is now Libya in 1805 by a force of U.S. Marines and soldiers from other nations. The battle, memorialized in the Marines’ Hymn with the line “to the shores of Tripoli,” brought victory in the First Barbary War against Mediterranean pirates. Huntington Ingalls,

based in Newport News, Va., had said earlier this month that it was negotiating the contract with the Navy. “Large-deck amphibious ship construction is an important component of our business plan, and we are pleased to have reached agreement with the Navy on this contract,” said Ingalls Shipbuilding President Irwin F. Edenzon. The ship will be 844 feet long, 106 feet wide and weigh nearly 45,000 tons. It will host a crew of more than 1,000, with room to carry more than 1,600 additional Marines. Ingalls is the only American shipyard which builds amphibious assault ships, having built 13 others in the past. Ingalls struggled to build the last amphibious ship that it delivered, the USS Makin Island. Then parent-company Northrop Grumman Corp. had to write off more than $200 million after it had to rip out and redo bad wiring.

Bay St. Louis eyes adding amenities BAY ST. LOUIS — City leaders say they want to turn a sea wall the Army Corps of Engineers has built to protect this town from hurricanes as a place for people to sit and enjoy events. The Sea Coast Echo reports that Mayor Les Fillingame wants to use the seawall in the future for seating and add amenities that don’t affect the storm protection purpose of the wall. The seawall has steps up from the beach much like stadiums and movie theaters do. Those steps consist of a one-foot rise and a two-foot run, which

is far greater than the average steps in a home. Fillingame said amenities like stairways and seats may be added at the city’s cost, but only if the corps approves.  

USM faculty backs Hammond for AD HATTIESBURG — The University of Southern Mississippi Faculty Senate wants Jeff Hammond to be the school’s next athletic director. The American reports that the faculty body voted overwhelmingly in favor of outgoing President Martha Saunders’ choice of the former Army major general as the next permanent athletic director at the college. Hammond is the school’s interim AD. In April, he criticized former AD Richard Giannini for running up a $1 million deficit at the athletic department. The faculty body praised Hammond for making “important strides to improve the financial status of athletics.” “We want someone who shows ethical behavior. That’s part of our core values,” said Desmond Fletcher, co-chair of the senate budget committee that drew up the recommendation. The recommendation passed 23-0 with four senators not voting.

BMC, NEMCC sign transfer agreement BLUE MOUNTAIN — Blue Mountain College and Northeast Mississippi Community College have signed an agreement that will enable students to transfer credit more easily. Under the agreement,

Blue Mountain will accept 64 hours of General Education Core work provided the student earns a grade of C or higher toward the completion of a four-year degree. Blue Mountain has a similar agreement with Itawamba Community College.

USS Mississippi commissioned PASCAGOULA — The USS Mississippi, a sophisticated attack Navy submarine, is going into active service. The 377-foot Virginiaclass submarine arrived last month in Pascagoula and was commissioned Saturday. A commissioning places a ship into active service. The Clarion-Ledger reports that the USS Mississippi, which cost $2 billion to build, was delivered a year ahead of schedule and under budget. This is the fifth Navy ship or boat to carry the Mississippi name. It is expected to remain in the fleet for about three decades. The submarine was christened at General Dynamics Electric Boat in Groton, Conn., on Dec. 3, and has been through sea trials. The submarine will be assigned to Submarine Group Two. With a crew of about 130 officer and sailors, the submarine carries torpedoes and Tomahawk missiles, and can be configured to carry Navy SEALs. Electric Boat and its major subcontractor, Huntington Ingalls Industries-Newport News, have received contracts to build the first 18 submarines of a planned 30ship Virginia Class.

“That is a very emotional part of the event,” said Lauren Pitre, a 1995 graduate of West Point High School who serves as the Virginia class program office acquisition manager. “You then see the crew run on board. It definitely gives you chills.” Rear Adm. Michael Jabaley, a 1980 graduate of Murrah High School in Jackson, Miss., is manager of the Virginia fleet and he said having the commissioning happen in Mississippi was special to him.

Alcorn State seeks funds for improvements LORMAN — Alcorn State University is going on a major capital fundraising campaign. That’s according to President Christopher Brown. “We must keep our students in the classroom and build a campus infrastructure to sustain our growth,” Brown said. The Clarion-Ledger reports that Brown was in California recently meeting with potential donors interested in helping the historically black university grow. The university said it was in the process of establishing campaign goals.

Schools aim to cut costs on supply lists TUPELO — The Tupelo Public School District is providing a consistent list of necessary supplies to parents for each grade level across the district. Assistant Superintendent Diana Ezell tells the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal that one parameter was to be

sensitive to prices and keep the total cost close to $20. “We’ve tried to keep it reasonable because parents were overwhelmed at the beginning of the past school year with all of the fees and supplies, and we wanted to be sensitive to families,” said Ezell. Ezell said the school supplies list are on the district’s website. Lists are for each grade from pre-kindergarten to eighth. “We try to do it as early as we can because we know if you have more than one child, it is nice to be able to stock up in the summer when things are on sale,” Ezell said. The new lists were a priority of the Teacher Advisory Council, Ezell said. The lists note the items specifically needed for the start of school. The list includes additional quantities of each item as needed for the entire school year.

Risks of viral boomerangs become reality in cyberwar Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is warning American businesses about an unusually potent computer virus that infected Iran’s oil industry even as suspicions persist that the United States is responsible for secretly creating and unleashing cyberweapons against foreign countries. The government’s dual roles of alerting U.S. companies about these threats and producing powerful software weapons and eavesdropping

tools underscore the risks of an unintended, online boomerang. Unlike a bullet or missile fired at an enemy, a cyberweapon that spreads across the Internet may circle back accidentally to infect computers it was never supposed to target. It’s one of the unusual challenges facing the programmers who build such weapons, and presidents who must decide when to launch them. The Homeland Security Department’s warning about the new virus,

known as “Flame,” assured U.S. companies that no infections had been discovered so far inside the U.S. It described Flame as an espionage tool that was sophisticated in design, using encryption and other techniques to help break into computers and move through corporate or private networks. The virus can eavesdrop on data traffic, take screenshots and record audio and keystrokes. The department said the origin is a mystery.

Hundreds gather to mourn coaches ANSLEY, Neb. — A crash that killed two Nebraska high school basketball coaches and injured eight players as they returned from camp broke “our collective heart,” a minister told hundreds gathered at a Saturday vigil. The crash happened Friday when the team van collided with a pickup on a rural highway near Ansley, a small town about 160 miles west of Lincoln. Coaches Zane Harvey, 38, and Anthony Blum, 24, died, along with the driver of the pickup, 70-year-old Albert Sherbeck, according to the Nebraska State Patrol. Eight students were taken to hospitals, and four remained hospitalized Saturday, according to the Broken Bow Public Schools, which organized the vigil. “Yesterday afternoon, all of us had things on our mind, some were happy — I was preparing to officiate at an evening wedding — some were working, some were playing, some were getting ready for a fun weekend,” Pastor Larry DeMoss, of Broken Bow Berean Church, said, according to the Omaha WorldHerald. “A few moments later, as news trickled in, we found that our collective heart was broken with the news of the tragic accident just a few miles down the highway.” One hospitalized student suffered a broken femur and elbow. Information on the others’ injuries wasn’t released by the district, and a message left Saturday with a Kearney hospital wasn’t immediately returned. The state patrol said Harvey, an assistant coach at Broken Bow High School, was driving the van, and Blum, the head coach, was his front-seat passenger.

Runner with cerebral palsy turns online hit COLUMBUS, Ohio — When John Blaine realized 11-year-old Matt Woodrum was struggling through his 400-meter race at school in central


crossroads wedding planner

Ohio, the physical education teacher felt compelled to walk over and check on the boy. “Matt, you’re not going to stop, are you?” he encouragingly asked Woodrum, who has cerebral palsy. “No way,” said the panting, yet determined, fifth-grader. Almost spontaneously, dozens of Woodrum’s classmates — many who had participated earlier in the school’s field day — converged alongside him, running and cheering on Woodrum as he completed his final lap under the hot sun. The race on May 16, captured on video by Woodrum’s mother, is now capturing the attention of strangers on the Internet, many who call the boy and his classmates an inspiration to be more compassionate toward each other. A nearly five-minute YouTube video posted this week by the boy’s uncle has received more than 680,000 views. Woodrum, who has spastic cerebral palsy that greatly affects his muscle movement, said he had a few moments where he struggled. “I knew I would finish it,” said the soft-spoken Woodrum, who attends Colonial Hills Elementary School in suburban Worthington. “But there were a couple of parts of the race where I really felt like giving up.” It was his fourth race of the day, and one he didn’t have to run. Only a handful of students opted to give it a try, said Anne Curran, Woodrum’s mother. She said her son doesn’t exclude himself from anything, playing football and baseball with friends and his two brothers. “He pushes through everything. He pushes through the pain, and he pushes through however long it may take to complete a task,” she said. “He wants to go big or go home.” The sometimes shaky footage shows Woodrum beginning the race on a steady pace with his classmates, though he quickly lags. As several students pass him on their second lap around the grassy course, Blaine walks over to make sure Woodrum is OK.

ment said in a statement that deputies have reunited a man and his iguana, whose name is just “Lizard,” five months after he was stolen. Lizard lived at Ken Schmidt’s auto shop for 17 years and was apparently the only thing stolen when the Bellflower business was burglarized in December. Deputies say blood near a broken window led to a suspect. When investigators served a search warrant at a home in Downey they found a loaded gun, marijuana, hashish oil and the missing iguana. Lizard and Schmidt were reunited Thursday.

Edwards’ mistress publishing memoir RALEIGH, N.C. — John Edwards’ mistress Rielle Hunter is publishing a memoir about her relationship with the former presidential candidate and their daughter. Jennifer Canzoneri, marketing manager at Dallas-based BenBella Books, says “What Really Happened” is set to be released on June 26. Edwards and Hunter had an affair while the Democrat was running for the White House in 2008 and have a daughter together, Frances Quinn Hunter. On Thursday, a jury acquitted Edwards on count of illegally accepting campaign contributions and deadlocked on five other charges. He had been accused of orchestrating a plan to use money from campaign donors to hide Hunter while he ran from the White House. His relationship with Hunter currently remains unclear.

Big volcano’s 100th anniversary marked ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Even a century after one of the world’s largest volcanic eruptions, a strong wind still whips up the ash that rained down on what became known as Alaska’s Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes. Pumice chunks still dot the beaches of Kodiak Island across Shelikof Strait. The three-day explosion that began June 6, 1912, spewed ash as high as 100,000 feet above the sparsely populated Katmai region, covering the remote valley to depths up to 700 feet. The volcanic cloud spread across the United States and traveled as far as Algeria in northern Africa in the most powerful eruption of the 20th century.

Collegesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bank deals saddle students with big fees BY DANIEL WAGNER Associated Press

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; As many as 900 colleges are pushing students into using payment cards that carry hefty costs, sometimes even to get to their financial aid money, according to a report released last week by a public interest group. Colleges and banks rake in millions from the fees, often through secretive deals and sometimes in apparent violation of federal law, according to the report, an early copy of which was obtained by The Associated Press. More than two out of five U.S. higher-education students â&#x20AC;&#x201D; more than 9 million people â&#x20AC;&#x201D; attend schools that have deals with financial companies, says the report, written by the U.S. Public Interest Research Group Higher Education Fund. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For decades, student aid was distributed without fees,â&#x20AC;? said Rich Williams, the reportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead author. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now bank middlemen are making out like bandits using campus cards to siphon off millions of student aid dollars.â&#x20AC;? Programs like Higher Oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shift the cost of handing out financial aid money from universities, which no longer have to print and mail checks, to fee-paying students, Williams said. The fees add to the mountain of debt many students already take on to get a diploma. U.S. student debt tops $1 trillion, according to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Student loans have surpassed credit cards as the biggest source of unsecured debt in America, according to the CFPB, which regulates cards and private student lenders. It took Mario ParkerMilligan less than a semester to decide that he was paying too many fees to Higher One, the company hired by his college to pay out studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; financial aid on debit cards. Four years after he opted out, his classmates still face more than a dozen fees â&#x20AC;&#x201D; for replacement cards, for using the cards as all-purpose debit cards, for using an ATM other than the two oncampus kiosks owned by Higher One. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They sold it as a faster, cheaper way for the college to get students their money,â&#x20AC;? said Parker-Milligan, 23, student body president at Lane Community College in Eugene, Ore. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It may be cheaper for the college, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not cheaper for the students.â&#x20AC;? Among the fees charged by Higher One, according to its website, is a $50 â&#x20AC;&#x153;lack of documentation feeâ&#x20AC;? for students who fail

to submit certain paperwork. The U.S. Department of Education called the charging of such fees â&#x20AC;&#x153;unallowableâ&#x20AC;? in guidance to financial aid officers issued last month. Higher One founder and Chief Operating Officer Miles Lasater said in an email that the company takes compliance with the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rules â&#x20AC;&#x153;very seriously,â&#x20AC;? and officially swears that to the government each year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are committed to providing good value accounts that are designed for college students,â&#x20AC;? he said, and students must review the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fee list when they sign up for an account. He cited a study commissioned by Higher One that declared Higher One â&#x20AC;&#x153;a low-cost provider for this market.â&#x20AC;? The same study found that the median fees charged to the 2 million students with Higher One accounts totaled $49 annually. Among the fees charged to students who open Higher One accounts: $50 if an account is overdrawn for more than 45 days, $10 per month if the student stops using his account for six months, $29 to $38 for overdrawing an account with a recurring bill payment and 50 cents to use a PIN instead of a signature system at a retail store. Higher One has agreements with 520 campuses that enroll more than 4.3 million students, about one-fifth of the students enrolled in college nationwide, according to public filings and the U.S. PIRG report. Wells Fargo and US Bank combined have deals with schools that enroll 3.7 million, the report says. Lane Community Collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s president, Mary

Spilde, said in an interview that the real problem is a â&#x20AC;&#x153;lack of adequate public funding,â&#x20AC;? which forces students to seek financial aid and colleges to find ways to cut costs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many institutions are looking at ways to streamline and to do things that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re good at, which is education and learning, and not banking,â&#x20AC;? Spilde said. Students can opt out of the programs and choose direct deposit or paper checks to receive their college aid, but relatively few do. The cards and accounts are marketed aggressively using college letterhead and websites carrying the endorsement of colleges. Higher One also warns students that it will take extra days if they choose direct deposit or a paper check. In the end, students feel locked into accounts before they have a chance to shop for a better deal, Parker-Milligan said.

He said thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s especially tough for poor students who rely on food stamps and other social services. Those students budget down to the penny, and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t plan on paying a fee when Higher Oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ATM runs out of cash, he said. Offerings by financial companies vary by campus. Some issue checking accounts with debit cards. Others offer prepaid debit cards, which are similar to bank debit cards but can carry higher fees and offer fewer consumer protections. Often, studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; campus ID cards double as payment cards. TCF Bankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s university partners give students multiuse cards that can serve as school IDs, ATM and debit cards, library cards, security cards, health care cards, phone cards, and stored-value cards for vending machines, the report said.

BY BRIAN MAHONEY Associated Press

BOSTON — Everywhere Dwyane Wade turned, two Boston Celtics seemed to be waiting. And as long as Chris Bosh is out, he understands it’s probably going to stay that way. The Celtics can double-team him without fear, knowing LeBron James is the only other Miami player who can consistently hurt them. Wade scored only 18 points

Friday in the Heat’s 101-91 loss in Game 3, snapping his streak of 12 straight 20-point playoff games against Boston that was the longest since Jerry West had 18 in a row from 1966-69. Wade isn’t expecting Bosh back from his lower abdominal strain Sunday in Game 4, so the scheme probably won’t change. But he vows that his performance will. “I’m not coming here crying,” he said Saturday. “I can score the basketball, I’ve just

got to find other ways to do that. It might not be a 41-point effort like it was in Indiana, you never know what each game takes, but I’m just going to go out here and play the game that I played for so many years and I will find a way to be effective.” Wade shot 9 of 20 in his second-lowest scoring performance of this postseason, after a five-point effort in Game 3 of the second round against Indiana. He was struggling with

knee pain then, but insisted there was nothing wrong physically now. The only problem, he said, was the two defenders closing on him whenever he came off a pick or caught the ball anywhere near the lane. He was also largely contained in Game 2, managing only 15 points in regulation before scoring eight in overtime to help the Heat pull out a 115-111 victory. Please see WADE | 9A

Mississippi State’s Mitch Slauter puts down a bunt to score a runner against UAB in the sixth inning of an NCAA regional tournament game on Saturday in Tallahassee, Fla. Mississippi State won 8-1

Mississippi St eliminates UAB 8-1 Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Wes Rea and Sam Frost each hit two-run doubles and Southeastern Conference champion Mississippi State eliminated UAB 8-1 in NCAA regional play Saturday. Rea’s double into the left

field corner ignited a five-run sixth that catapulted the Bulldogs into a 7-1 lead. Frost, whose fourth-inning double gave Mississippi State a 2-0 lead, added his third RBI in the sixth with a sacrifice fly. Ross Mitchell (3-0) picked up the victory after replacing

starter Kendall Graveman in the fourth. Caleb Reed went the final four and two-thirds innings to register his ninth save. Ryan Nance (4-4) was tagged with the loss for the Blazers, who scored their lone run on an infield ground out.

The Conference USA champions (32-30) scored just two runs in the double-elimination tournament. Mississippi State (40-23) will meet the loser of Saturday’s winners’ bracket game Please see REGIONAL | 9A

A nose. That’s all that separated Real Quiet from racing immortality. He was beaten by the smallest of margins in the 1998 Belmont Stakes, the longest and toughest leg of thoroughbred racing’s Triple Crown. Affirmed was the last to sweep the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont, 34 years ago. Since then, 11 horses have won the first two only to come up short in the Belmont, felled by a safety pin picked up in a stall, a stumble out of the gate or a jockey’s judgment. Now it’s I’ll Have Another’s turn to try to become the 12th Triple Crown winner. The chestnut colt chased down pacesetter Bodemeister in the final 100 yards to win the Kentucky Derby on May 5. Two weeks later, he surged past Bodemeister a few yards from the finish line in the Preakness to win by a neck. Bodemeister won’t be back to challenge I’ll Have Another

Levin leads Memorial heading into final round of PGA tour Associated press

DUBLIN, Ohio — Spencer Levin gets another crack at his first PGA Tour win, this time with a smaller lead and a lot more star power behind him.

Levin felt as though he could do no wrong Saturday at the Memorial when he chipped in for eagle, chipped in for birdie and even had a par putt swirl around the cup and fall in.

That allowed him to make a few mistakes on the back nine and still post a 3-under 69 for a one-shot lead over Rory Sabbatini (71). Rickie Fowler also had a 69, one of only three

rounds in the 60s, and was three shots behind. Fowler will play in the final round with Tiger Woods, a four-time Memorial champion who is very much in the picture.

Woods had a share of the lead early, but fell back with a sloppy short game on the back nine and had to settle for a 73. He was four shots back. Levin, a self-styled Cali-

fornian who rarely hides his emotions, had a sixshot lead going into the final round of the Phoenix Open this year until Please see PGA | 9A

Baseball NL standings, schedule


in the Belmont. But 10 other rivals are likely, including Derby also-rans Dullahan, Optimizer and Union Rags. The others are horses that skipped one or both of the first two legs, leaving them well-rested for the 1 1-2 mile run around the deep, sandy dirt track. “It ain’t like the old days where everyone used to run in all three,” said Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith, who is 1 for 13 in the Belmont. “It’s taxing on the horse to run in all three. If somebody is hiding behind the bushes waiting to jump you when they’re all fresh, they can beat you.” Smith will be aboard one of the fresh ones in next Saturday’s Belmont. He’ll ride Paynter, who skipped the Derby and Preakness. Nineteen times since 1944 horses have come to the Belmont with a chance to win the Triple Crown. Big Brown was the last horse to take a shot in 2008. But he bombed out in the Belmont, mysteriously getting eased at the top of the stretch and leaving nearly 95,000 fans stunned at the sight of the colt with the bad feet failing to finish. The final 11⁄2 miles on the Triple Crown trail can do a number on a horse, trainer and jockey. Sometimes, a horse finds trouble in his own stall. On the morning of the 1979 Belmont, a safety pin was discovered embedded in Spectacular Bid’s hoof. He didn’t appear lame, so he ran in the race. His teenage jockey, Ron Franklin, gunned the colt to the early lead before he eventually faded to third. Silver Charm in 1997, Real Quiet in 1998 and Smarty Jones in 2004 were the only three since Affirmed’s victory to lose by a length or less. In Real Quiet’s case, he owned a five-length lead with a quartermile left in the Belmont. Victory Gallop, second in the Derby and the Preakness, moved up on Real Quiet and jockey Kent Desormeaux. The horses crossed the wire in a photo finish, but Victory Gallop got his nose in front. A stride past the finish line, Real Quiet had regained the lead. “I thought he won it,” said Bob Baffert, the Hall of Fame trainer who had his hopes dashed with both Silver Charm and Real Quiet. In 1997, Baffert watched from the stands as Silver Charm fought off Free House for the lead with a quarter-mile to go and appeared to have clear sailing to the wire. Then Touch Gold made a move on the far outside. Jockey Gary Stevens didn’t see his rival and Silver Charm was beaten by three-quarters of a length.

“As a team, we have to figure out ways to exploit the double team,” James said. “As his teammates, we’ve got to make ourselves available to make plays for ourselves, and also when the double team is not there early on offense, we’ve got to get the ball to him early so he can attack without a double team.” Wade didn’t attempt a free

throw for the first time in a playoff game since 2004, when he was a rookie, and managed just six points on 3-of-9 shooting in the first half. Still, he was far from the only problem for the Heat. “You look at all the effort areas we dominated the first two games, we got our butt kicked in all of them last night,” said coach Erik Spoelstra, rolling through the list quickly as if afraid he’d forget one if he

stopped for a breath. “Points in the paint, they pounded us. Rebounding, they pounded us. Free throws, they beat us. Layup attempts, they beat us. Every area that has to do with toughness and effort we lost, and in the first two games we were winning those categories. Loose balls, 50-50 opportunities.” That’s because the Celtics realized that’s the only way they can beat such a talented oppo-

nent. “I just thought Game 3 was more of a desperation game and we have to play like that,” Kevin Garnett said. “We have to get these two at home by any means necessary and then deal with whatever after that. I felt like the way we played in Game 3 is the way we have to play. This team is too athletic, too good, too confident, too well coached, too well-sound defensively.”


between Florida State and Samford in an elimination game Sunday.

Mississippi 6, Texas A&M 3 COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Mike Mayers pitched solid ball into the

seventh inning and thirdseeded Mississippi defeated top-seeded Texas A&Mon Saturday night at the College Station Regional. Mayers (6-3) limited the Aggies to three runs — two earned — and four hits, and struck out a career-high nine in 61⁄3

innings. Rebels reliever Brett Huber kept the Aggies to a lone hit over the next two innings, and R.J. Hively closed it out by re-

tiring the final two batters with two runners on. Mississippi (37-24) scored two runs each in the third, fourth and sixth.

he squandered it away on the back nine and wound up losing to a remarkable comeback by Kyle Stanley. What did he learn? “People have been asking me that question, and I don’t know yet,” Levin said. “I’ll be able to answer that tomorrow.” Muirfield Village figures to be a far stronger test, not only the course but who is chasing him down. A strong wind and firm conditions — not to mention a few pins tucked near the edges of the greens — made for difficult scoring. Only 14 of the 71 players managed to break par. That’s one reason this tournament is far from over. The other reason comes from the six players right behind him. All of them have either won

Woods and Fowler will play together for the second time in a month, this time with a little more riding on their scores. They were in the same group the opening two rounds of The Players Championship. Ryo Ishikawa, using a local caddie from Muirfield Village, ran off three straight birdies on the back nine and finished with a 71. The Japanese star was in a group at 213 that included Henrik Stenson (71) and Jonathan Byrd (72). Vijay Singh had the other 69 and was in the group at 214, six shots behind.

Summer camp provides plenty of experiences “The organized summer camp the most important step in education that America has given the world.” — Charles Eliot Among my several attributes is my hearty appetite, which, no kidding, I owe to camping. As a child, I learned to eat any-

thing and everything at summer camp. Readers may think I’m joking, but I’m not. From the time I could gag, I hated squash, okra, broccoli, cauliflower, sweet potatoes, and the list goes on. At camp, always ravenous after an active day, I learned the food is there,

well prepared; if I wanted to eat, I had to eat what they served. I gave in, ate, and now I’m an ardent vegetable and fruit lover. Can’t name one I don’t love. I write this because the weather is turning absolutely gorgeous and I wish for every child in this

world the opportunity to go to summer camp! Besides learning healthy eating habits, camp provided more education and adventure than I could ever describe in Beth a 700 word Jacks column. Many of Snippets my fondest memories are of youthful camping experiences, starting in childhood and continuing into my teen years. About this time 50-plus years ago, I was making plans to step up from a mere Camp Castalian Springs camper to the exalted position of counselor. I’d attended Castalian near Durant for four or five years prior to the summer of ’59, and although I really wasn’t quite old enough to be a counselor, the YMCA honchos decided to promote me since I’d become a fixture around the place. The YMCA letter came in early spring. They were pleased to say I’d been chosen to be a counselorin-training. In this important position of CIT, which they didn’t mention included cleaning bath-

rooms and washing dishes, I would not receive a salary but would have all expenses paid. No salary? Didn’t matter. I was going to camp free of charge and I was ecstatic. And yes, I had another memorable summer. In my 1959 diary during those CIT weeks, I recorded these gems: “In the morning I’m in charge of the infirmary -big yuk. It started raining like gushes yesterday afternoon and now the kids are all sick as dogs. In the afternoons I teach archery even though I don’t know a thing about shooting arrows. One of the horse guys climbed a tree to get a pine cone. He bet me I couldn’t hit it with an arrow and he was right. None of the campers showed up at the archery range, so I sunbathed . . . This afternoon the counselors hid and the campers had to find us. Only six found me, so I had peace and quiet for a while, good thing since I listened to Randy’s all night last night and was TIRED today . . . The horses got lose [sic] this morning and everybody was screaming. They were galloping all over the grounds and down the road (the horses, not the kids) . . . Shirley has a copy

of ‘Peyton Place.’” Educational? Well, sure. Camp Castalian wasn’t my only camping experience. Covering the state of Mississippi, I sometimes attended two or three camps in one summer. (Think my parents were trying to get rid of me?) Let’s see, there was also YTeen camp at Rockbrook near Macon, church camp at Lake Stephens (Oxford), and music camp at the University of Southern Mississippi. All were wonderful. Really, where else can a kid go during a long, hot summer to escape parents and mosquitoes, learn a zillion silly songs, kidnap their counselors, meet dozens of new friends, and make precious memories? And what do you want to bet every summer camp will have a bunch of fabulous cooks in the kitchen who can coax campers into eating boiled okra? Ask any kid -- that’s adventure.

Me, ‘Gus’ and a real pain in the old neck BY TOM PARSON NPS Ranger

Last week I had throat surgery and I am still recuperating at home. There were plenty of people willing to tell me the horrors of having my tonsils taken out as an adult and how I would be a hurtin’ pup for a few weeks. As it turns out, the stories were very accurate. It hurts. Lucky for me, I have plenty of sick time saved up and the boss has been tolerant of the time off for recovery. So, as I was lying in the hospital bed the day after the surgery, devoting all of my physical energies toward swallowing a sip of water, I was reminded of Confederate General Beauregard. Pierre Gustave Toutant Beauregard, or “Gus” as we call him at the office, had a similar surgery during the Civil War but his boss was not nearly as understanding as mine. Beauregard and Confederate President Jefferson Davis were never what you would call close and despite Gus being the hero of Fort Sumter and the Battle of Manassas, the president was looking for a way to get rid of him. The 43-year-old Creole was a graduate of West Point, class of ’38, and was known by his colleagues as “The Little Napoleon,” or “Old Borey.” A gifted soldier, he was also prone to talk too much. His stature in the high command of the Confederacy began to dwindle after Manassas when he got into some rather heated arguments with members of the army staff as well as the Davis cabinet. At one point he questioned whether the secretary of war was nothing more than a “functionary at his desk” who would rather “write lectures on law while the

Bladon Springs Hotel, a resor t just nor th of Mobile, Ala., was well known for the curative properties of the mineral waters. enemy is mustering in our front.” The president entered the argument to make peace between the two, but to no avail. It came to a boiling point when Beauregard told the newspapers it had been the interference by President Davis which had prevented his destroying the enemy forces during the late battle. The actual nature of his throat affliction is a bit hazy, but apparently it began to trouble him in the days following his victory at the Battle of Manassas. It was serious enough to require surgery, an option not taken lightly in those days when most maladies were treated with “Blue Mass.” Blue Mass? Whatever the medical problem was, Blue Mass was the cure. Made from equal parts of mercury and honey it was used to treat throat ailments, tuberculosis, toothaches, insanity and childbirth. In this case Blue Mass was not enough and Gus was forced to go under the surgeon’s knife. He was still in recovery when an incensed President Davis chose to make some adjustments. The president decided the best place for Beauregard was far from Richmond and he was given orders to report to General Albert Sidney Johnston as second in command of the sprawling Department No. 2.

Gus’s new duties gave him little time to sit around sipping chicken soup. Late in January of 1862 Beauregard made his way to Kentucky and soon after to Jackson, Tennessee. By mid-March he had made his headquarters at the Duncan House on Jackson Street in Corinth. Fortunes in the Western Confederacy were at an all-time low with the fall of Forts Henry and Donelson as Johnston and Beauregard rallied the troops for a smashing offensive against the Union invaders. The Creole was still feeling the effects of his surgery when the Battle of Shiloh was fought and he assumed command of the army upon the death of General Johnston. He was far from being a well man. The Siege of Corinth put immense pressure on Gus and despite the recommendations of his surgeons to rest he pushed himself harder than ever. The days and nights were filled with hours of work to salvage the army’s position and strength, but it was to no avail. By the end of May, he had determined to abandon the critical rail junction and move his headquarters to Tupelo. Beauregard was able to save the army, but the loss of the city was a terrible blow to the Confederacy. For his part, Gus felt the withdrawal had been conducted so masterfully he was to be congratulated and the movement itself treated as a victory. President Davis did not agree and his irritation with Gus reached new heights. Luckily for Beauregard, the Union forces did not pursue him to Tupelo and he was finally able to think about his health. On the 17th of

Pierre Gustave Toutant Beauregard, a 43-year-old Creole and graduate of West Point, class of 1838, and was known by his colleagues as “The Little Napoleon,” or “Old Borey.”

The Siege of Corinth put immense pressure on Gus, and despite the recommendations of his surgeons to rest he pushed himself harder than ever. June, 1862, heaccepted a medical certificate of disability presented by his surgeons and placed himself on sick leave. He took the train south to Bladon Springs, Ala., a resort just north of Mobile which was well known for the curative properties of the mineral waters. The centerpiece of the spa was an ornate Greek Revival hotel which boasted a ballroom, bowling alley, billiards, and even a roller skating rink. It was a perfect place to

recover but there was only one problem: Gus had failed to ask permission to defer his duties for his two-week vacation. President Davis was furious, at least outwardly. Actually, things could not have worked out better if he had planned them himself. Before the train had even reached Mobile, General Braxton Bragg was ordered to take command of the army and a message was sent to Gus to take as much time off as he needed.

Gus would eventually return to active duty, not in Mississippi, but in far away in Charleston, South Carolina where it was believed the sea air would be good for his throat. Unlike Gus, I had the foresight to talk to my boss in advance of my surgery. I don’t have any plans to visit Mobile, but I am taking no chances and staying right here in Corinth ’til I’m ready to go back to my desk. You never know.

Already the summer visitors have begun to come in. It looks as though we will have a good number. The hotels and boarding houses are in constant correspondence with parties from various places who are expecting to spend the summer here. The friends of our brother, W. F. Jourdan, will be pleased to know of his recent success in the educational field. He has been unanimously elected to the principalship of the city schools of Temple, Texas, where are in attendance about 800 pupils and more than a dozen assistant teachers.

At a hop given at the Iuka Springs Hotel Tuesday night, the following young ladies and gentlemen participated: Misses Carrie Harvey, Myrta Walmsley, Lilly Harris, — Wells, Lizzie Walmsley, Lula Tindall, Messrs. Fred Groesbeck, Tom Harvey, T. W. Moore, Dan Candler, Ed. McKinney, Charley Watson. Ice cream was served the guests.

Jamaica seeks heritage status for sunken port BY DAVID MCFADDEN Associated Press

KINGSTON, Jamaica â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Archaeologists said last Tuesday theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll ask the United Nationsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; cultural agency to bestow world heritage status on Port Royal, the mostly submerged remains of a historic Jamaican port known as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;wickedest city on Earthâ&#x20AC;? more than three centuries ago. Receiving the designation would place Port Royal in the company of global marvels such as Cambodiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Angkor temple complex and Indiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Taj Mahal. The sunken 17th century city was once a bustling place where buccaneers including Henry Morgan docked in search of rum, women and boat repairs. International consultants have conducted painstaking surveys to mark the old cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s land and sea boundaries to apply for the world heritage designation by June 2014, said Dorrick Gray, a technical director with the Jamaican National Heritage Trust, a government agency responsible for preserving and developing the islandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cultural spots. Port Royal was the main city of the British colony of Jamaica until an earthquake and tsunami submerged two-

thirds of the settlement in 1692. After the quake, the remainder of the town served as a British royal navy base for two centuries, even as it was periodically ravaged by fires and hurricanes. In his book â&#x20AC;&#x153;Caribbean,â&#x20AC;? author James Michener described Port Royal as having â&#x20AC;&#x153;no restraints of any kind, and the soldiers stationed in the fort seemed as undisciplined as the pirates who roared ashore to take over the place night after night. They were of all breeds, all with nefarious occupations.â&#x20AC;? Now, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a depressed fishing village with little to attract visitors. The sunken remnants of the city are in murky waters in an archaeological preserve closed to divers without a permit. But in recent decades, excavations have turned up artifacts including cannonballs, wine glasses, ornate pipes, pewter plates and ceramic plates dredged from the muck just offshore. The partial skeleton of a child was found in 1998. At a Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s press conference, experts said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s among the top British archaeological sites in the Western Hemisphere and should be protected for future generations.

Mr. and Mrs. Jimmy Fowler Jr.

Dearman â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Fowler Aimee Elizabeth Dearman and Jimmy â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jimmerâ&#x20AC;? Loyd Fowler Jr. were united in marriage on April 21, 2012 at Paris-Yates Chapel at Ole Miss.

The bride wore an offthe-shoulder white taffeta gown with crystal and pearl beadwork on the bodice, a pleated waist through the hip and Vback adorned with taffeta buttons and cathedral-length train. She carried a bouquet of light and dark pink peonies. The bridesmaidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; gowns were knee-length, sailboat-blue, sleeveless

dresses with ruffled collars. They carried light pink peony bouquets. Her matron of honor as Andrea Alexander of Ridgeland. Bridesmaids were Miranda Marshall of Houston and Meggan England of Tupelo. Flower girls were Eme Claire Smith of Hamilton, Ala. and Lauren Richey of Saltillo. The best man was the groomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father. Groomsmen were Sean Shaalan and Jonathan Fowler, the groomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother, both of Corinth. Ushers were Jason Griggs of Oxford and Corey Gilmore of Corinth. Ring bearer was Ashton Richey of Saltillo. The couple were honored with a reception at the Oxford Conference Centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Magnolia Room.

(Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a five-hour plane ride from here.) My family, especially my parents, are making me feel extremely guilty about even considering this move. They say I am â&#x20AC;&#x153;abandoningâ&#x20AC;? them, and ask how could I live with myself if something ever happened? Abby, my parents are in their early 50s and in excellent health. My two sisters live near them. I fail to see why I am getting so much grief, when I just want to move on to the next stage of my life. Any advice? -- PULLED IN TWO DIRECTIONS DEAR PULLED IN TWO: Your parents are anxious because even at 30, you are still their child, and they are experiencing separation anxiety.

DEAR ABBY: My adult son, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jake,â&#x20AC;? is in prison for the fourth time for an indiscretion in his early 20s. He hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t repeated the offense, but he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t comply with the rules of his probation and ends up back in prison. I fully supported my son when the incident happened because I felt he got a bad break, but I feel he should take responsibility for his actions. Jakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s repeated offenses for noncompliance are part of a rebellious and stubborn attitude and an unwillingness to accept the lifelong consequences of his initial offense. To compound the issue, he has three daughters. He keeps popping in and out of their lives, which is very disruptive. If it werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for them, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d probably write him off (I have done that emotionally anyway), but I keep trying to maintain some kind of connection between them in case he comes around someday.

Gospel artists flock to Atlanta to advance career BY JONATHAN LANDRUM JR. Associated Press

ATLANTA — Christian rapper Lecrae first came to Atlanta as a teenager for a youth conference in 1999, but what ultimately convinced him to lay down roots here was its thriving gospel music scene. “Atlanta is just a musical hub,” said the 32-yearold, who moved from Houston three years ago. “There are a slew of producers, engineers, artists and writers. There’s a wealth of outlets here, and it’s a community of artists who are here as well. That’s a major reason why I came here.” Atlanta has become a key place of business for many of the heavyweights in gospel and Christian music, like Marvin Sapp, Mary Mary, Kirk Franklin and Jason Crabb. They flock to the city known to some as “gospel’s Hol-

lywood” because of its flourishing R&B and hiphop scene, an evolving television market, a variety of Christian and gospel record labels, and a plethora of mega churches. Some of the industry’s best, such as Francesca Battistelli, the group Casting Crowns, Chris Tomlin and Dottie Peoples, reside in the city or in the suburban areas. “Atlanta is becoming like the new Los Angeles,” said Sapp, the chart-topping gospel singer from Grand Rapids, Mich. “Everybody and their momma are shooting all types of films here,” he added. “It’s becoming a regular hotbed for the entertainment field. And because of that, gospel is coming here as well. People are connecting. It’s becoming a very viable place for gospel artists to excel and be successful musically.” Recently, the 43rd an-

nual Dove Awards took place at the popular Fox Theatre in Atlanta for the second straight year. The show, which celebrates Christian and gospel music, had all the glitz and glamour of a high-profile awards show, with more than 250 media outlets on the red carpet. The rising support of the genre in Atlanta is what convinced Gospel Music Association organizers to move the Doves to the city in 2011. The ceremony started in Memphis and was held in Nashville, Tenn., for more than four decades. GMA board chairman Mitchell Solarek said organizers felt Atlanta has a larger media reach with more radio and television outlets to support the show. With GMC — formerly the Gospel Music Channel — based in Atlanta, Solarek called the move a “no brainer.” The network aired the awards

in April. “Even though Nashville is touted as the music capital of the world, the media is not as broad there as it is in Atlanta,” he said. “We wanted to take this (awards show) to a market that was broader than it was in Nashville, while still achieving our goal of musical diversity and still reach the bulk of our members. And Atlanta is just a drive away.” That sounds good to the ears of Georgia officials, who have worked hard to promote the state as an entertainment destination. They offer one of the highest tax credits in the United States — up to 30 percent to those looking to produce shows, music videos and commercials in the state. “We are developing strategies to aggressively promote Georgia’s strengths in the music industry including its wealth of talent, expand-

ing digital media infrastructure, production facilities, live music scene and music education opportunities” said Lisa Love, the director of music marketing and development for the Georgia film, music & digital entertainment office. “The gospel and contemporary Christianoriented assets in all of those areas will continue to be invaluable in the positioning of Georgia as an entertainment industry destination,” she continued. Lecrae has made it his destination. Since he has lived in city, the rapper has become one of the most popular in Christian hip-hop. He also cofounded his own record label with Ben Washer, Reach Records, which is based in Atlanta. Other labels launched by artists based in Atlanta or in the state of Georgia include Christian rock group

Third Day’s Essential Records; singer/rapper Canton Jones’ Cajo International; Dottie Peoples’ DP Muzik Group; and televangelist Creflo Dollar’s Arrow Records. Warner Music Group’s Taseis Distribution is located in Atlanta as well. “It’s easy to come here because of all the industry people are already here,” said Henry Panion III, whose record label, Audiostate 55 Entertainment is based out of Birmingham, Ala., and is distributed through Taseis. “Atlanta has become an entertainment draw, and gospel is following suit.” Lecrae feels he’s in Atlanta at the perfect time. “It’s been really good here,” he said. “Just seeing people within the music industry from mainstream and even what others call secular music come together to use their talents for the Lord, it’s great.”

Naomi Judd gets her own call-in radio show on SiriusXM BY CHRIS TALBOTT AP Entertainment Writer

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Naomi Judd’s new limited-run SiriusXM radio talk show has no safety net and even the country star says with a laugh she isn’t sure that’s a great idea. “If you’ve been at a press conference, you know I’ve said things I haven’t thought of — whoa,” Judd said. “That’s why they asked me. And there’s no 5-second delay. I’m wandering the woods without a map.” Judd hopes “Think Twice,” which starts its six-week run of hour-long

Friday morning episodes June 8, will be a place the satellite radio network’s 22 million subscribers can turn to for a freeform discussion of ideas and topics, from current events and politics to hotbutton issues like abortion and evolution. “I want people to think twice,” Judd said in a phone interview. “That’s why I came up with the title, because in today’s culture, in this ADHD culture, people don’t understand the real important stuff. I want people to be talking about this stuff at the water cooler, around the kitchen table. I may

have a total brainiac on who’s one of the most important people in the world, but I want to translate it for standard-issue folks because that’s where my heart is. I want to tell them how this is affecting their everyday life.” First up, though, the 66-year-old Grammy winner will examine her own life and her relationship with daughter Ashley Judd. Mother and daughter will sit down together in front of a studio audience next Tuesday to tape the debut episode. Judd’s voice filled with emotion when she described her feelings about

Horoscopes Sunday, June 3, 2012 BY HOLIDAY MATHIS Creators Syndicate

It is said that there’s no way to happiness because happiness is the way. Tell that to a goal-oriented individual on a mission, though, and expect a puzzled response. Happiness is, to this person, a trophy in hand. Mercury and Saturn form a fortuitous angle to help us see the validity of different approaches and try to find the best fit. ARIES (March 21-April 19). People want what you have. You’ll be approached by many, and you don’t have time to address each person’s individual need. Find a way to help several people en masse. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll go the extra mile to make sure that your actions not only match your words but also exceed the expectation that your words set up. That’s why you’ll be promoted in the esteem of others. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll capture someone’s imagination. That’s not what you set out to do, but you’ll do it all the same. And once you’ve caught this imagination, you can bring it wherever you want to go. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re objective when it comes to your work, and what you observe about it now will inspire you. Like a sculptor who steps back to behold a work in progress from a distance, you begin to see the shape of your life. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). As you follow your curiosity about ordinary people and daily life, you discover that there is no such thing as an “ordinary person” and that each day is really entirely different from the last.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Whether you’re traveling to the grocery or to another country, travel light. It’s simpler, easier and cheaper. Plus, it sends a signal that you trust the universe to bring all you need. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You really appreciate what’s going so right in your life now, which includes your relationship with a few people you cherish. You’ll be moved to let them know in little ways that they are special. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). As you rise to meet the challenges of the moment, new influences march into your life. You’ll be smart about which ones to adopt. It’s brave, the way you are always changing. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Making backups is favored, whether it’s a digital copy of your computer files or a plan B for today’s schedule. Thinking ahead to what might go wrong will make it more likely that things go right. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You feel a transition coming on, and you want to be graceful with this change. The element of surrender will help you. Let go and trust that you’ll have a soft landing. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Sometimes loved ones treat you like you’re an on-call problem solver. Take the pressure off of yourself. You don’t have to have all of the answers. Go off-duty. There’s peace in saying “I don’t know.” PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Respond promptly to phone calls. This one rule will save you from confusion, miscommunication and/or awkwardness. Handling things in real time gives you power.


the interview. She said that though the two have spent time together since Ashley Judd published a memoir last year that placed stress on their relationship, they have not spoken about the book or the revelations that Ashley was sexually abused as a child, including by a family member. When “All That is Bitter & Sweet” was published last year, Ashley Judd said she’d never told her mother of the abuse. Both Naomi Judd and her other daughter, duo partner Wynonna Judd, say they also suffered sexual

abuse. “I admit I’m a little nervous about doing it because this is the first time that Ashley and I have ever done anything together,” Judd said. “And I’m going to ask her about what happened in our relationship — whoa, I have to take a deep breath before that one.” Judd said she would also ask her daughter about her feelings over the recent cancellation of her television series “Missing” and her emotions watching her husband, three-time Indy 500 champion Dario Franchitti race in the

aftermath of the death of his close friend Dan Wheldon. The remainder of the season will be live callin shows that will be replayed Saturday morning. She’s pulling her guest list from her personal rolodex, which is full of Nobel Prize winners and leaders in the science, medical and technology fields, deep thinkers and interesting people. Guests already scheduled include National Institutes of Health Director Dr. Francis S. Collins and Dr. Helen Morrison, a forensic psychiatrist specializing in serial killers.
