Rally of 300 backs Second Amendment BY STEVE BEAVERS sbeavers@dailycorinthian.com

Josh Scarborough drove close to two hours to celebrate his 28th birthday. Not only was he commemorating another year, but the freedoms handed down by the United State Constitution. Scarborough and his wife, Shauna, wanted to be part of the Second Amendment Firearm Freedom Day sponsored by the Alcorn County Patriots after seeing the announcement of the event on Facebook. “I love hearing all knowledge about guns,” he said of the rally on the grounds of the Alcorn County Courthouse. “When I heard about the rally, ‘I told my wife this is what I want to do for my birthday.”’ The Scarboroughs were part of around 300 hundred people who turned out to honor local legislators for their support of Mississippi House Bill 2. “Guns are where the federal government is attacking us first,” said Scarborough. “The state is on our side when it comes to this.” The event went on as scheduled despite the injunction of Hinds County Circuit Judge Winston Kidd, blocking the gun law from taking effect earlier in the week. A hearing is set for Monday to decide if the injunction will be extended.

KHS grad sworn in as Amory mayor Pilot program

brings latest tech to students

BY BRANT SAPPINGTON bsappington@dailycorinthian.com

Alcorn County native Brad Blalock recently took on a new title – mayor of a growing Northeast Mississippi community. Blalock was elected in May to the top job in Amory after a desire to create a better future for his young son pushed him to run for the seat being left vacant by a retiring two-term incumbent. He was sworn in to begin the new term last week. A 1996 graduate of Kossuth High School, Blalock is the son of Jim and Linda Blalock who still live in the Kossuth home he grew up in. Despite his new position, the mayor said he isn’t interested in being a politician. “I’m not very interested in politics,” he said. “I just want my community to be better”. After graduating from Kossuth, Blalock first enrolled

The technology revolution begins in the Booneville School District. The district is preparing to launch a $1.2 million state-funded pilot program putting tablet computers into the hands of every student and fundamentally changing the way students access information and use technology inside and outside of the classroom. “This is the biggest change in education to the way education is presented in the history of the school district,”said Superintendent Todd English. We are very fortunate to have gotten this pilot program.” The project, funded by the Mississippi legislature during the most recent regular session and over seen by the state department of education, will provide every student in the district with a digital device that will contain their textbooks along with programs for word processing, Internet access for research, and

ing money for the Mississippi monument during the Mississippi SCV’s annual meeting in Jackson. Ellis received the J.Z. George Preservation Award for his hard work on the project and received a certificate from the outgoing commander of the Mississippi Division for his “faithful dedication to duty and service” to the commander. He was also honored with a standing ovation from the assembled SCV members. So far, Ellis has helped raise approximately $175,000 for the project. Added to a $250,000 pledge from the Mississippi legislature, this puts Ellis

and the SCV in the neighborhood of the projected $450,000 to $500,000 cost of the monument. “We’re getting pretty close,” said Ellis. “We need more donations, but we’re close.” Right now they are working with the National Park Service, learning all of the rules and regulations in regard to placing a monument on the battlefield. The next step — after finding out what is acceptable to the Park Service — will be to plan the actual monument with a designer. If they raise more than the monument costs, the funds will be saved for upkeep, Ellis said. Ellis and members of the Col. W.P. Rogers camp plan a fish fry at the na-

tional SCV convention later this month in Vicksburg. Other camps are working on projects as well. The planned monument will be placed near Rhea Springs on the battlefield, the site of some of the heaviest fighting for Mississippi troops during the battle. The projected completion date is sometime in 2015, although it could be earlier, Ellis said. The project is nothing new for Mississippi’s SCV members. There was much talk of a Mississippi monument for years, but not much else. “Three or four years ago a lot of people said it will never happen, we’ll never get the money,” Ellis recalled. “Some worked for

a while and quit. Gave up.” But giving up never entered into Ellis’ mind. “I ain’t giving up till it’s done,” he vowed. Now he’s seeing the light at the end of the tunnel — a monument for the sons of Mississippi who fought, bled and died in one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War. “It’s very long overdue,” said Ellis. “I’m looking forward to the day we get it. And glad the end is in sight.” (To learn more or contribute to the Mississippi monument fundraising effort contact SCV Mississippi Division Second Brigade Commander Buddy Ellis at 662-286-6779 or by email at bellis1960@comcast. net.)

Supporters of the bill said it makes clear those in Mississippi do not need any kind of state-is-

What to do when technology hurts

Today in History Today is Sunday, July 7, the 188th day of 2013. There are 177 days left in the year.

BY DR. MARIAH SMITH MSU Extension Center for Technology Outreach

Today’s Highlight in History: On July 7, 1846, U.S. annexation of California was proclaimed at Monterey after the surrender of a Mexican garrison.

On this date: In 1865, four people were hanged in Washington, D.C., for conspiring with John Wilkes Booth to assassinate President Abraham Lincoln. In 1898, the United States annexed Hawaii. In 1919, the first Transcontinental Motor Convoy, in which a U.S. Army convoy of motorized vehicles crossed the United States, departed Washington, D.C. (The trip ended in San Francisco on September 6, 1919.) In 1937, the Second Sino-Japanese War erupted into full-scale conflict as Imperial Japanese forces attacked the Marco Polo Bridge in Beijing. In 1941, U.S. forces took up positions in Iceland, Trinidad and British Guiana to forestall any Nazi invasion, even though the United States had not yet entered the Second World War. In 1952, the Republican National Convention, which nominated Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower for president and Sen. Richard Nixon for vice president, opened in Chicago. In 1963, a Navy jet fighter from Willow Grove Naval Air Station in Pennsylvania crashed into a picnic area, killing seven people; the pilot, who ejected, survived. In 1973, actress Veronica Lake, known for her “peek-a-boo” hairstyle, died in Burlington, Vt., at age 50. In 1976, President and Mrs. Gerald R. Ford hosted a White House dinner for Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip. In 1981, President Ronald Reagan announced he was nominating Arizona Judge Sandra Day O’Connor to become the first female justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. In 1983, 11-year-old Samantha Smith of Manchester, Maine, left for a visit to the Soviet Union at the personal invitation of Soviet leader Yuri V. Andropov. In 1987, Lt. Col. Oliver North began his longawaited public testimony at the Iran-Contra hearing, telling Congress that he had “never carried out a single act, not one,” without authorization.

MAYOR CONTINUED FROM 1A

at the University of Mississippi before transferring to FreedHardeman University in Henderson, Tenn. where he earned a degree in Biblical Studies. His degree led him to Amory where he took a job working with a church in the area. He later decided to go back to school to seek his Masters in Education, but while working on that degree he became inter-

ested in law, took the law school qualifying test and enrolled in law school at the University of Mississippi. After completing his law degree he and his wife, Candy, moved back to Amory where he went into private practice as an attorney. He said watching his son, seven-year-old Cooper, grow up inspired him to run for office. “I want to make sure my family has a good community to grow up in,” he said.

He plans to focus on economic development, downtown improvement and quality of life issues during his first term as mayor and he said he’s thankful for the lessons learned growing up in Alcorn County. He tries to get back home when he can, but admits busy work schedules and a full list of activities including travel sports teams for his son keep them from making the trip as often as they’d like.

The district is currently completing the installation of equipment to allow wireless Internet access in every building. The expect to seek bids soon for the purchase of the devices with the goal of having the tablet computers in the hands of the students by Christmas. Students in kindergarten and first grade will receive a simpler device and grades 2-12 will receive a more advanced digital device, likely an Android based computer, which will have their complete textbooks and all other needed materials installed. English said the goal of the program is to help students meet the increasingly rigorous Common Core Curriculum standards being implemented across the state which focus on technology and communication and put much greater demands on students. He said students already use this type of technology in their daily lives and it makes sense to incorporate it and encour-

age the development of technology skills in the school setting. The program will also save money on the purchase of textbooks and allow those resources to be updated on a more regular basis. English said they understand not all students have Internet access at home, so the textbooks themselves are stored in the memory of the machine and will not require an active Internet connection to use. The equipment will be overseen by the district’s technology coordinator Dustin Pounders who will have full access to maintain the machines, send out updates and ensure they are being used correctly. The superintendent also noted all Internet access using the devices will go through the state content filter to ensure they are used for legitimate purposes and no inappropriate material is accessed.

TECHNOLOGY CONTINUED FROM 1A

specific applications tied to individual subjects or study areas. The superintendent emphasized the program is entirely funded through the state and no local tax money will be used for the effort. Booneville is the sole K-12 participant in the pilot project. The Hattiesburg School District was funded through the same bill to pilot the program only at the middle school level. The pilot projects will be monitored closely by the department of education and will be used as models for the rest of the state for the implementation of this type of major technology changes in schools. “Booneville’s program will be a model for the state,” said English. He said he’s extremely grateful to State Senator J.P. Wilemon, State Representative Tracy Arnold and Gov. Phil Bryant for their leadership in encouraging the creation of the pilot program and bringing it to Booneville.

JPS gets special ed standards extension Associated Press

JACKSON — Jackson Public Schools is getting seven more months to meet federal special education standards before the state pulls its accreditation. The extension is the second one the state Department of Education has given the district’s exceptional education department to comply with the

Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. Compliance will ensure all JPS students with disabilities receive a free and appropriate public education. With the new deadline, JPS will have had about three years to comply with IDEA. The agreement gives the district until Feb. 28, 2014, to meet the standards.

Technology hurts. Whether you’re banging your head on the desk in frustration or watching money disappear with the purchase of the new, must-have gadget, technology can hurt both physically and mentally. Like many of you, I spend a great deal of quality time with my mouse and keyboard. During a recent workday, my wrist and forearm began to hurt so badly I had to stop altogether. Most of us know this type of pain as the beginning of carpal tunnel syndrome. Clearly, I am not the only one feeling the burn. According the National Institutes of Health, carpal tunnel is three times as likely to occur in women as it is in men. As I was teaching a class of senior citizens, I noticed that they too needed help making technology hurt less. Even simple double-clicks of the mouse on an icon can cause pain. One dear lady told me her rheumatoid arthritis prevented this simple maneuver. As I looked around the room, several participants were using both hands to move the mouse and click because it was too difficult to do with just one hand. There must be a better way, and technology has to be able to hurt less. The first victim in a war on hurtful technology could be the keyboard. Trade in your old clunker keyboard for a lightweight keyboard. Go to the store and try out the keyboard before purchasing. Make sure you can press the keys easily and without too much force. Personally, I use an Apple keyboard with my PC computer because of how easy the keys depress. It’s like typing on air.

If using the mouse is where your challenge lies, consider using shortcut keys on the keyboard instead. Shortcut keys such as pressing the control key and the letter “s” (Ctrl + S) on your keyboard simultaneously will help you avoid using the mouse to select menu functions. There are a lot of shortcut keys. You can find many of them at http://support.microsoft. com/kb/126449. If you don’t find one you like, you can always create your own. One website that allows you to make personal shortcuts is at http://tinyurl.com/ nwnpfpy. The mouse can be a slippery beast running to and fro over the mouse pad. If you have trouble keeping the mouse contained, cut the mouse pad in half to limit your wrist and arm motions. Also consider using a mouse with a roller ball rather than the standard optical mouse. Under the “Control Panel” of your computer, you should see a mouse icon. If you click this icon, you will get the “Mouse Properties” window. Here, you can adjust the speed of the double-click, as well as other mouse functions. For my friend who had trouble doing a quick double-click, we reduced the clicking speed to help her arthritic fingers click on icons. For the rest of us, taking short breaks of just a few minutes can give aching wrists and forearms a break. Also, pay attention to your mother. When she said, “Sit up straight; your posture is important,” she was right. Good posture and keeping your feet on the floor or on a footrest can also help alleviate muscle pain. If your technology is hurting you, take corrective measures. Technology shouldn’t hurt.

Corinth, Miss.

A surrender on Obamacare Washington is riven by conflict and deepseated division. It is rare indeed when both sides can agree on anything consequential. Therefore it is incredibly heartening that there is now bipartisan agreement that the implementation of Obamacare is a mess. Republicans have long maintained this, but now the Obama administration has lent its implicit assent with its astonishing decision to delay by a year the law’s employer mandate. This is what the administration calls, via a blog post by the Treasury Department’s assistant secretary for tax policy announcing the decision, “Continuing to ImRich plement the ACA in a Careful, Lowery Thoughtful Manner.” It can call it whatever it National wants, but there is no hiding Review the embarrassment of a climbdown on a high-profile feature of President Barack Obama’s signature initiative. Although the administration was determined to do all it could to hide it. The administration was apparently planning to announce it on July 3 — only because the day before Thanksgiving or Christmas Eve was too far off. The purported reason for the delay is incompetence. The administration’s story is that it simply couldn’t find a way to implement the insurance reporting requirements on employers in the time frame set out in the law. Merely as a side-effect, it had to put off the mandate and the $2,000-per-employee fine on employers with more than 50 employees who don’t offer health coverage. This just happens to be the mandate that is causing howls of pain from businesses and creating perverse incentives for them to limit their hiring or to hire part-time rather than full-time employees. Explaining the decision, Obama apparatchik Valerie Jarrett issued a stalwart communique from Central Command that should take an honored place in the annals of blatant, unembarrassed hackery. Her message was: All is well. Nothing to see here. Yes, maybe we’ve delayed implementation of the (hilariously euphemistic) “employer responsibility payments,” aka fines, but don’t worry, it’s “full steam ahead” with the health-care exchanges this October. Jarrett portrayed the decision as about “cutting red tape.” But if you pass a horrendously complicated law placing new burdens on employers, you aren’t cutting red tape, you are adding to it. And a delay doesn’t cut red tape -- it delays it. “As we implement this law,” Jarrett explained, “we have and will continue to make changes as needed.” But the law is supposed to be the law, not optional suggestions from Congress. In Jarrett’s view, Obamacare is little more than a warrant for the Obama administration to decide how it wants to run the American health-care system, one executive decision at a time. It has become a trope among defenders of the law that its flaws are the fault of Republicans because they don’t want to fix them. They must have seen their own peculiar version of “Schoolhouse Rock!”: The first step in making a law is jamming a massive bill down the opposition’s throat. The second is whining that the opposition won’t fix problems inherent in the bill jammed down their throats. Obamacare was sold on the twin, flagrantly false promises that you could keep the insurance you have and the prices for insurance would drop. But there will be significant dumping of employees onto the exchanges, and the latest indication of the law’s price shock came via The Wall Street Journal this week, which reported that “healthy consumers could see insurance rates double or even triple when they look for individual coverage.” The delay of the employer mandate may create political pressure to delay the more important individual mandate as well, on grounds that ordinary people shouldn’t face the fines for not buying government-mandated coverage that businesses have been spared. Certainly, the maneuver on the employer mandate is a painful concession and a signal of weakness. Now everyone can agree: Implementation of the president’s proudest achievement is troubled, at best. (Daily Corinthian columnist and editor of the National Review, Rich Lowry can be reached via e-mail: comments.lowry@nationalreview.com.)

A verse to share “But man dieth, and wasteth away: yea, man giveth up the ghost, and where is he?” — Job 14:10

Reasons why Reagan Democrats departed On Nov. 3, 1969, Richard Nixon, his presidency about to be broken by massive antiwar demonstrations, called on “the great silent majority” to stand by him for peace with honor in Vietnam. They did. Within days Nixon’s approval surged to 68 percent. The ferocious Republican partisan of the 1950s had won over millions of Democrats. Why? Because sons and brothers of those Democrats were doing much of the fighting in Vietnam. If Nixon was standing by them, they would stand by him. In 1972 Nixon would win 49 states. Ronald Reagan, backed by his “Reagan Democrats,” would win 44and 49-state landslides. Yet since Reagan went home, Democrats have won the popular vote in five of six presidential elections. The New Majority is history. The Reagan Democrats have departed. What happened? Answer: For a generation, when forced to choose between Middle America and corporate America, on NAFTA, most-favored nation for China, and free trade, the GOP establishment opted to go with the Fortune 500. Consider who has benefited most from Republican-backed globalization. Was it not corporate executives and transnational companies liberated from the land of their birth and the call of patriotism? Under the rules of globalization, U.S. corpora-

tions could, without penalty or opprobrium, shut their factories, lay off their Pat U.S. workerect Buchanan ers, new plants in Columnist Asia, produce their goods there, and bring them back free of any tariff to sell to consumers and kill the U.S. companies that elected to stay loyal to the U.S.A. They then used the profits from abandoning America to raise executive salaries to seven and eight figures. And how did the Reagan Democrats make out? Real wages of U.S. workers have not risen for 40 years. One in three U.S. manufacturing jobs vanished between 2000 and 2010. A nation that used to export twice what it imported has been running huge trade deficits for decades. China now holds $1 trillion in U.S. debt and can buy Smithfield hams out of the petty cash drawer. With 50,000 U.S. factories closing in this new century, the greatest manufacturing power in history has been hollowed out, as Beijing booms at our expense. Corporate America is building the new China that is pushing Uncle Sam out of the western Pacific. “Where did the ‘America’ in corporate America go?” asks Robert Patterson in National Review.

The Bush aide hearkens back to “Engine Charlie” Wilson, Ike’s first secretary of defense, who said, “For years I have thought what was good for our country was good for General Motors and vice versa.” Wilson’s words were twisted by a capitalistbaiting press, but he saw GM as first and foremost an American company. Before Wilson there was William Knudson, the dollar-a-year man of FDR’s war effort who converted GM and Detroit into the great arsenal of democracy, a story movingly told by Arthur Herman in “Freedom’s Forge: How American Business Produced Victory in World War II.” “In the good old days,” writes Patterson, “Americans could at least count on business leaders being proAmerican. Beloved or not, major corporations functioned as true stakeholders of America: fortifying American industry and building American factories, spreading American innovation, paying billions of dollars in American taxes and creating millions of high paying ‘family-wage’ jobs that helped create and sustain an expanding middle class.” And today? “No longer committed to a particular place, people, country or culture, our largest public companies have turned globalist, while abdicating the responsibility they once assumed to America and its workers.” Citing Joel Kotkin’s work, Patterson adds, “the worst

offenders are Apple, Facebook, Google, the high-tech firms secluded in Silicon Valley, a dreamland where the information age glitterati make Gilded Age plutocrats look bourgeois.” Google has five times GM’s market capitalization but employs only one-fourth the number of GM’s American workers. Steve Jobs’ Apple has “700,000 industrial serfs” working overseas. Since we bailed it out, GM has become “General Tso’s Motors,” creating 6,000 new jobs in China while shedding 78,000 U.S. jobs here. Marco Rubio today leads Senate Republicans in doing the bidding of corporate America, which, in payback for its campaign contributions, wants amnesty for 12 million illegal aliens. Agribusinesses need more peons. Restaurant chains want more waitresses, dishwashers, busboys. Construction companies want more ditch-diggers. Silicon Valley demands hundreds of thousands more H-1Bs — foreign graduate students who can be hired for half what an American engineer might need to support his family. “Merchants have no country,” said Thomas Jefferson. “The mere spot they stand on does not constitute so strong an attachment as that from which they draw their gains.” Amen to that. (Daily Corinthian columnist Patrick J. Buchanan is the author of “Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?”)

Exploring the mindset of the left: Part III The fundamental problem of the political left seems to be that the real world does not fit their preconceptions. Therefore they see the real world as what is wrong, and what needs to be changed, since apparently their preconceptions cannot be wrong. A never-ending source of grievances for the left is the fact that some groups are “over-represented” in desirable occupations, institutions and income brackets, while other groups are “under-represented.” From all the indignation and outrage about this expressed on the left, you might think that it was impossible that different groups are simply better at different things. Yet runners from Kenya continue to win a disproportionate share of marathons in the United States, and children whose parents or grandparents came from India have won most of the American spelling bees in the past 15 years. And has anyone failed to notice that the leading professional basketball players have for years been black, in a country where most of the

population is white? Not only people but things have been grossly unequal. Thomas More than Sowell two-thirds of all the torColumnist nadoes in the entire world occur in the middle of the United States. Asia has more than 70 mountain peaks that are higher than 20,000 feet and Africa has none. Is it news that a disproportionate share of all the oil in the world is in the Middle East? Whole books could be filled with the unequal behavior or performances of people, or the unequal geographic settings in which whole races, nations and civilizations have developed. All this moral melodrama has served as a background for the political agenda of the left, which has claimed to be able to lift the poor out of poverty and in general make the world a better place. This claim has been made for centuries, and in countries around the world. And it has failed for centu-

ries in countries around the world. Some of the most sweeping and spectacular rhetoric of the left occurred in 18th century France, where the very concept of the left originated in the fact that people with certain views sat on the left side of the National Assembly. The French Revolution was their chance to show what they could do when they got the power they sought. In contrast to what they promised — “liberty, equality, fraternity” — what they actually produced were food shortages, mob violence and dictatorial powers. In the 20th century, the most sweeping vision of the left — Communism — spread over vast regions of the world and encompassed well over a billion human beings. Of these, millions died of starvation in the Soviet Union under Stalin and tens of millions in China under Mao.

the left were correct, central planning by educated elites with vast amounts of statistical data at their fingertips, expertise readily available, and backed by the power of government, should have been more successful than market economies where millions of individuals pursued their own individual interests willy-nilly. But, by the end of the 20th century, even socialist and communist governments began abandoning central planning and allowing more market competition. Yet this quiet capitulation to inescapable realities did not end the noisy claims of the left. In the United States, those claims and policies reached new heights, epitomized by government takeovers of whole sectors of the economy and unprecedented intrusions into the lives of Americans, of which ObamaCare has been only the most obvious example.

Solar powered plane on final leg of flight WASHINGTON — A solar-powered aircraft lifted off from a suburban Washington airport before dawn Saturday, embarking on the final leg of a history-making cross-country flight. The Solar Impulse flew out of Dulles International Airport a little before 5 a.m. en route to New York City. The flight plan for the revolutionary plane takes it past the Statue of Liberty before landing at New York’s JFK Airport early Sunday. “This is a leg where everybody is quite moved,” Bertrand Piccard, one of two pilots who took turns flying the Solar Impulse across the United States, said shortly after the aircraft was in the air. He stood on the tarmac, giving an enthusiastic thumbs up as the plane soared into the morning sky. The Solar Impulse was expected to set down in New York around 2 a.m. Weather for the flight, which will take the plane over Maryland and Delaware, then up the coast past Atlantic City, was expected to be good. Andre Borschberg was piloting the final leg. Despite the relatively short distance, it would be a long flight. The slow-flying aircraft would be traveling between two of the world’s busiest airports and was required to take off very early in the morning and land very late at night when air traffic is at a minimum. The aircraft, powered by some 11,000 solar cells, soars to 30,000 feet while poking along at a top speed of 45 mph. The Solar Impulse left San Francisco in early May and has made stopovers in Phoenix, Dallas-Fort Worth, St. Louis, Cincinnati and Dulles. The cross-country flight is a tune-up for a planned 2015 flight around the globe with an up-graded version of the plane.

Pentagon facing day without pay WASHINGTON — A day without pay, the first of 11 through September, comes next week for more than 650,000 people who hold civilian jobs with the Defense Department. Officials worry that the Pentagon will be hit even harder by layoffs in 2014 if automatic budget cuts continue as planned. Roughly 85 percent of the department’s nearly 900,000 civilians around the world will be furloughed one day each week over the next three months, according to the latest statistics provided by the Pentagon. But while defense officials were able to shift money around to limit the furloughs this year, thousands of civilian, military and contract jobs could be on the chopping block next year. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is expected to provide senators with more details early next week on how the next wave of acrossthe-board budget cuts will affect the department, said Pentagon press secretary George Little. But while defense officials have not yet released details on the impact of the cuts, Gen. Ray Odierno, the Army’s chief of staff, has warned that as many as 100,000 more activeduty, National Guard and Reserve soldiers could lose their jobs if Congress allows billions of dollars in automatic budget cuts to continue next year. Initial hopes that the number of furlough days could be reduced have largely been dashed. Instead, talk is focused more on how to slash spending in 2014. The department can only force workers to take 22 furlough days per year, thus the need for possible layoffs. In the coming weeks, however, civilian employees ranging from

top-level policy advisers to school teachers and depot workers will not be answering their phones or responding to emails for one day a week through the end of the fiscal year on Sept. 30. The department estimates the savings will be between $1.9 billion and $2.1 billion.

‘Evil spirit’ scam plagues immigrants NEW YORK — One woman was told by a fortune teller that her son was possessed by demons. Another was approached on a Chinatown street by a stranger who eerily claimed her daughter would die in two days. A third was informed that her dead husband was communicating from the grave, telling her to hand over thousands in cash. “Your son will die in a car accident — he is cursed,” a 65-year-old was told. In each instance, the women bundled up cash and jewelry in a bag and gave it to strangers they’d just met — selfproclaimed spiritual healers. They were told the contents would be blessed in an effort to ward off evil spirits, bring good luck to the family or heal a sick child — they just have to wait a period of time to re-open it. When they do, they find water bottles, cough drops and beans. But no valuables. Detectives say there has been a rash in New York of what’s known as an evil spirit or blessing scam, where older immigrant women, mostly Chinese, are swindled out of their valuables by clever scammers arriving from China who prey on superstition and fear. In the past six months, two dozen victims have reported valuables stolen — in some cases more than $10,000 in cash and $13,000 in jewelry, according to police reports.

County to join wireless radio system GREENVILLE — Washington County will advertise for bids to buy equipment to join the Mississippi Wireless Information Network. The Delta Democrat Times reports that the decision by the board of supervisors came after months of searching for a way to fix the county’s troubled radio communication system. The county’s radio repeaters recently were upgraded at a cost of nearly $15,000. That came after a Federal Communications Commission advisory that radio bandwidth had become too congested. The county spends about $14,000 a month to maintain the 13-yearold system. Supervisors said maintaining the system is a constant drain on county finances. Emergency Management Director David Burford said the upgrade to MWIN would cost more than $80,000, but monthly expenditures would drop. Bill Buffington, technical director for the state Wireless Communication Commission, said smaller cities such as Madison and Ridgeland spend less than $40,000 a year to operate their systems. Burford said by switching to the state system county workers would be able to communicate across city and county frequencies, a benefit during emergencies.

High court to hear Eaton arguments JACKSON — The Eaton

Corp. goes before the Mississippi Supreme Court on Aug. 5 seeking reinstatement of its $1 billion trade secrets lawsuit filed against a rival, Frisby Aerospace. A Hinds County judge in 2010 threw out the case, saying Eaton knew about and sanctioned secret actions that attorney Ed Peters took to influence former judge Bobby DeLaughter, who was the initial judge on the case. Frisby attorneys argued that Peters worked behind the scenes to influence DeLaughter and give Eaton an unfair advantage in the civil case. Eaton alleges in its lawsuit that five former Eaton engineers took aerospace information and gave it their new employer, Frisby. Frisby then began competing with Eaton for military and commercial contracts, according to the lawsuit. The Eaton case is among dozens the Supreme Court will consider during its July-August term. A decision is expected later this year. In May 2012, federal prosecutors dropped criminal cases against the five aerospace engineers who had been accused of stealing trade secrets. The cases had been frozen since 2009, pending the outcome of the civil suit. Frisby Aerospace is now part of Triumph Group, based near Philadelphia, Pa. Cleveland, Ohio-based Eaton, which makes hydraulic aircraft pumps at a 600-employee factory in Jackson, filed suit in 2004. Eaton has argued that protecting trade secrets helps maintain those jobs.

Tupelo council lifts rule on comments TUPELO — Got something to say to the Tupelo City Council? Now, you don’t have to wait a year to say it. The newly inaugurated council has eliminated a rule that said a citizen could speak only once a year about any given topic. The policy was put in place in 2010. Council member Jim Newell pushed for the change, saying people should be allowed to speak at council meetings multiple times a year on the same subject, if they want. Council president Nettie Davis said that she can’t recall any instance of a citizen abusing the power to speak publicly at meetings. Davis is in her fourth term on the council, her first as president.

Lindley is a native of Starkville where she attended Mississippi State University and obtained her undergraduate degree in social work and a master’s degree in rehabilitation counseling. She is a licensed social worker.

Car drives several miles with dog trapped by axle Associated Press

DANIA BEACH, Fla. — South Florida firefighters came to the rescue of a dog that traveled 5 miles while trapped under the

hood of a car. The Broward Sheriff’s Office says firefighters were called Thursday afternoon to Dania Beach to free the dog.

JACKSON — A prison company wants a federal judge to dismiss a lawsuit filed by relatives of a guard who was killed during a prison riot in Mississippi. Correction officer Catlin Carithers was beaten to death during the May 20, 2012, riot at the privately run Adams County Correctional Facility in Natchez. The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court in Natchez against Nashville, Tenn.-based Corrections Corporation of America, which runs the prison. The lawsuit, which seeks unspecified damages, says CCA “created a dangerous atmosphere for the correction officers by depriving inmates of basic needs and treating them inhumanely.”

A motion to dismiss the lawsuit filed Wednesday says, among other things, that CCA is immune from the claims in the lawsuit because they are barred “by the exclusive remedy provision in the Mississippi Workers’ Compensation Act.” The argument is that workplace injuries should be compensated by workers’ compensation, not through litigation. “Carithers’s death was caused by the willful conduct of a third party (inmates) because of his employment status as a correctional officer at ACCF and while working on the job. Therefore, his death is compensable under the Act,” the motion said. The lawsuit says prison officials were told by an informant in the days before the riot that the situation was becoming volatile and that the officials

failed to warn Carithers that he and other guards were on an inmate “hit list.” Besides the Workers’ Compensation Act, the motion provides an alternative argument to dismiss the lawsuit — that the allegations fail to state a claim. “Defendants did not assault or batter Carithers; inmates did. Moreover, regarding the alleged failure to disclose the inmate informant’s “black list” report, the Complaint fails to allege the reliance, proximate causation, and legal duty requirements of a fraudulent concealment claim,” the motion says. Carithers was off the day of the riot but was called in to help, his family has said. It took hours for authorities to control the riot, which grew to involve hundreds of inmates and

injured at least 20 people. The prison holds nearly 2,500 inmates convicted of crimes while being in the U.S. illegally. The FBI has said in court records that the riot was started by a group of Mexican inmates, known as Paisas, who were angry about what they considered poor food and medical care and disrespectful guards. Paisas are a loosely affiliated group within the prison, without ties to organized gangs, FBI spokeswoman Deborah Madden has said. Several inmates have been charged with rioting in the case. The prison’s special response team and the Mississippi Highway Patrol’s SWAT team worked to end the riot while state and area law enforcement officers, some from neighboring Louisiana, helped secure the outside.

Point project to close park temporarily PASCAGOULA — The Pascagoula City Council has awarded a $1.3 million construction contract for new parking and a grassy, tiered amphitheater the Point Park. The contract was awarded this week to Saucierbased Knowles Constriction Inc. “This is a great first step,” Mayor Jim Blevins said. Construction on a new parking lot, as well as an amphitheater, will begin about Aug. 1 and run through November, said Darcie Crew, city parks and recreation director. The park, used primarily as a boat launch and fishing pier, will be closed dur-

at a savings of about $600,000. Crew said the city removed a stipulation that the project would have to be phased so as to never fully close the Point to the public, which saved about $250,000. He said engineers also saved another $100,000 by removing some excavation work. “The engineers have done what they call value engineering — a reduction in scope to try to save money,” Crew said.

The city will also use up to $100,000 in hotel tax revenues to fund the work. The city’s master plan calls for an $13 million development, which would include more parking, restrooms, rip-rap, boardwalks, lighting, landscaping, ramp improvements, pavilions, a playground, a stage and other features. In May, the previous administration rejected an over budget bid on the work. At that time, only a $2.3 million bid from Talley Contracting Inc. was received. City leaders decided then to re-advertise a slightly altered version of the project to save money. The city removed from the project a 20-foot by 30-foot elevated structure that would have housed two unisex restrooms,

‘Queen of the Air’ brings romance and drama BY TERRI SCHLICHENMEYER The Bookworm Sez

“Queen of the Air” by Dean Jensen c.2013, Crown $26.00 / $31.00 Canada 336 pages The bar was all of an inch in diameter, but it was perfect. You only needed to grab it and hang on, so it didn’t have to be very big. It just had to hold your weight as you swung hand-overhand, hung upside down, and performed monkeyshines on the monkey bars when you were a kid. It was so easy then. Those same moves look easy now, especially when done by a professional.

But as you’ll see in the new book “Queen of the Air” by Dean Jensen, what’s on the trapeze isn’t what’ll keep you hanging. Alfredo Codona didn’t believe in love at first sight – until he saw Leitzel. He was just sixteen years old, a relatively minor trapeze artist and soon-to-be heartthrob. She was eighteen, stunningly beautiful, a “darling with circus audiences everywhere...” Smitten, he pursued her with single-mindedness – but the Queen of the Air had her career to think about, and she ended the short romance. Born to an unwed teenager in 1891, Leitzel definitely had circus blood in

her veins: her father had owned a traveling troupe; her grandmother and aunts were all performers and her mother was a trapeze sensation. It didn’t take long for Leitzel to upstage her. Alfredo was the longawaited son of Edward Codona, owner of a traveling circus. Born in Mexico, Alfredo spent most of his youth watching his sister, Victoria, receive tutoring on the high wire. It was her prowess that got him to Chicago. It was she who saw his heart break when Leitzel said their romance was over. And so, in 1909, Leitzel went her way and Alfredo went his.

She married, divorced, and married again but always had lovers on the side, powerful men who visited her tent after her performances. Her fame grew, and she made “Mister John” Ringling a lot of money. On the trapeze, the grown-up Alfredo “had no peers.” His fame, too, was growing and he had his sights set on a feat that everyone said was impossible. He married a fellow troupe member, but he never forgot his first love. And then, eighteen years after their last kiss, Alfred Codona found himself working beneath the same roof as his beloved Leitzel…

So you say you love a good romance filled with drama. Add 1920s intrigue, period settings, elephants, and a dash of OMG, and you’ve got “Queen of the Air.”

Author Dean Jensen, in fact, makes Leitzel and Alfredo’s story seem more like a novel, with rich settings and good character shaping. But it’s no novel, and in his afterword, Jensen explains how he researched this “epic” story. Long before you get that far, though, you’ll be treated to a few hours of stupendous feats under the Big Top, and back to an innocent time that wasn’t so innocent after all. I could barely tear myself away from this book, and I think you’ll love it, too. For anyone who knows that stardust can be a tarnished and magic is an illusion, “Queen of the Air” absolutely soars.

A beloved pig pal with the grace of a queen named ‘Oink’ BY JIMMY REED Columnist

Even though my old mentor and boyhood best friend Jaybird enjoyed the company of dogs and cats, his favorite pets were pigs. He would have agreed with Sir Winston Churchill, who once said, “Always remember, a cat looks down on men, a dog looks up to men, but a pig will look men right in the eye and see his equal.” I was acquainted with a few of Jaybird’s beloved pig pals, among them Peggy Pokechop, Hortense Hog, and Clarabelle Chitlins, but the pig he loved most was named

Oink. After a day of chopping cotton, he and I would relax on his cabin porch and watch the sun slide beneath the flat Mississippi Delta horizon. He would kick back in his rocking chair, pull out his old cigarette case (one of my most cherished possessions to this day) and light a Camel. Directly, he would fetch a bottle of corn whiskey, and yell out, “Oink, come on up and jine us.” We’d hear an excited grunt, and Oink would trot up the steps, nuzzle Jaybird’s hand, and sit beside him with all the

decorum and grace of a queen. You may have known a few well-behaved pigs, but when it came to poise, manners, and etiquette, none could outdo Oink. Although her great beauty caused Jaybird’s boars to engage in tusk wars, she was demure, coy, and totally self-effacing about her drop-dead good looks. Long, curly lashes swept down over her brown, intelligent eyes, her face was always fixed in a pleasant grin, a couple of incisors poked cutely beside her jowls, and her ears, festooned with bristly hair, rotated con-

stantly, indicating that she keenly enjoyed good conversation, especially Jaybird’s jokes. She was also keenly interested in Jaybird’s corn whiskey. As she waited expectantly, he’d pour a dram or two in her bowl. At first, he held it to her mouth and let her sip, but soon he taught her to hold the bowl with her front feet and raise it to her mouth, although he later regretted teaching her this skill because, as the evening progressed, she left off sipping and began slurping in a most un-ladylike way. And, bless her heart,

she understood English — not that of a pedantic, grammar and syntax English professor, but the field hand vernacular that Jaybird used. Once, I witnessed an amazing example of this un-swinish ability. Jaybird was very protective of the rose bushes in his front yard. Oink was rooting too close to one of them, and instantly he put together a string of prepositions and shouted, “Oink, you better come on away from up in around behind dem bushes.” The pig grunted apologetically and trotted away. Although Jaybird loved

cracklins, chitlins, hams, and pork chops, he never met a live pig he didn’t like. In my mind’s eye, I can still see the three of us on his front porch — a wise old black man, a white boy he raised, and a pampered pet … a pig named Oink.

Man who drove Hank Williams on last trip dies ATF evidence causes BY BOB JOHNSON Associated Press

M O N T G O M E RY, Ala. — Charles Carr, who was just 18 when he drove country music legend Hank Williams on his final, lonesome journey, has died. The director of the Hank Williams Museum in Montgomery, Beth Petty, said Carr, a retired investor, died Monday after a brief illness. He was 79. Carr’s son, Charles Lands Carr, said his father didn’t talk much about being Williams’ driver on that final trip on Jan. 1, 1953, until late in his life. Williams died during the

“When he was younger he didn’t have an interest in being defined by that moment in his life.” Lands Carr Son night in his 1952 blue Cadillac near Bluefield, W.Va., while he and Carr were on their way to Canton. The Cadillac is on display in the Hank Williams Museum in Montgomery. Carr began to speak more about Williams’ last ride after he became involved with the museum. “When he was younger he didn’t have an inter-

est in being defined by that moment in his life,” Lands Carr said. In later years, Lands Carr said the museum “embraced” his father who became more comfortable talking about that trip with Williams. “If they invited him, he made a point of being there,” Lands Carr said of the museum.

Petty described Carr as a friend of the Hank Williams museum and as a man who “was always kind to fans of Hank.” Petty said Carr never tried to profit from the fact that he was driving the country music singer on that last trip. Carr was a friend of the Williams’ family when Williams asked him to drive him from Montgomery to a New Year’s Day concert in Canton, Ohio. Carr’s father owned a Montgomery cab company at the time. “My father drove for them from time to time,” Lands Carr said.

JACKSON, Tenn. — An evacuation of the federal building in Jackson has been called off after suspicious materials turned out to be evidence shipped by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. ATF Special Agent Michael Knight told The Jackson Sun that Friday’s delivery to the Ed Jones Federal building was labeled properly by the agency’s lab, but when screeners looked at the material through an X-ray, they contacted

Michael Knight ATF agent police. Jackson Police Lt. J.D. Hale said it is standard procedure for security to call the department if screeners detect suspicious packages. The ATF’s Knight said the agency appreciates screeners taking a close look. But in his words: “In the end, it was something that was legitimate.”

High tech options set for your next car BY DEE-ANN DURBIN AND TOM KRISHER AP Auto Writers

DETROIT — Cameras that check around the car for pedestrians. Radar that stops you from drifting out of your lane. An engine able to turn off automatically at traffic lights to conserve fuel. Technology that saves lives — and fuel — is getting better and cheaper. That means it’s no longer confined to luxury brands like Mercedes and Volvo. It’s showing up in mainstream vehicles like the Nissan Rogue and Ford Fusion. “What we see today as slightly elitist technology is changing very, very fast,� said Steven Lunn, chief operating officer for TRW Automotive, which supplies electronics and other parts to carmakers. TRW says its newest radar is a quarter of the price of the model it sold 10 years ago. Its cameras are smaller and cheaper, making it easier to put multiple ones on each car. Here are some up-andcoming features that drivers can expect on their next cars:

Collision warning with automatic braking New cars have radar and camera systems that warn you, with beeping sounds, of a possible front-end crash. Some even stop the vehicle, or at least slow it enough to make a crash less severe. More sophisticated systems apply the brakes if a car veers off the road and heads toward a moving or fixed object. The systems are the outgrowth of adaptive cruise control, which came out 15 years ago and helps keep cars a safe distance from vehicles in front of them. Mercedes, Honda, Toyota, Infiniti, Volvo and other brands offer automatic braking to avoid a collision; more automakers will follow soon. The systems seem to be working. David Zuby, the chief research officer at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, said collision warning systems alone reduced crashes by 7 percent in a study of insurance claims for several thousand Mercedes vehicles with the technologies. Adding automatic braking doubled that benefit.

Advanced cameras Automotive cameras are showing up on more cars ahead of a government requirement to

install backup cameras, which is expected by 2015. But with cameras getting smaller and cheaper, automakers aren’t just putting them on the back of the car anymore. Honda has side cameras that come on automatically when a turn signal is employed, so drivers can spot obstacles while turning. Nissan’s aroundview monitor blends images from four cameras tucked in the mirrors and elsewhere around the car into a composite, bird’seye view to help the driver back out of a parking spot. The system is available on a high-end Rogue, which costs $6,000 more than the base model. Volvo and Subaru have frontmounted cameras that can apply brakes to avoid hitting pedestrians.

automatic high beams to cars without them.

Stop-start By 2025, new cars and trucks sold in the U.S. will have to average 54.5 miles per gallon of gasoline, up from the current 30.8 mpg. One feature will almost be a must-have: A “stop-start� device that shuts off the engine at a stop light and automatically turns it on when the driver releases the brake. Alex Molinaroli, a vice president with Johnson Controls Inc., which makes batteries that pow-

Lane centering A camera can follow the road and gently nudge a car — using the brakes — to stay in the center of a lane. These systems — dubbed Lane Keep Assist — are available on most Mercedes-Benz vehicles as well as the Ford Fusion, Ford Explorer, Toyota Prius, Lexus GS and Lincoln MKZ. They aren’t cheap. A combined lane-keeping and lane-centering system is a $1,200 option on the Fusion SE. Prius owners must spend $4,320 to get the system, packaged with cruise control and an entertainment system. Lanecentering is an outgrowth of lane-keeping systems, which first appeared on commercial trucks a decade ago. Those systems — now offered by Honda, Buick, Cadillac, Nissan and other brands — sound a beep or vibrate the driver’s seat if a camera senses that a car is swerving out of its lane.

Adaptive headlights Headlights don’t have to be round any more to accommodate bulbs, so designers have more flexibility on where to put lights. And LEDs, or light-emitting diodes, are letting automakers cram more brightness into smaller spaces. Audi, Mercedes, Acura, Mazda and others have so-called adaptive headlights that swivel in the direction the car is going to help drivers see around corners as they turn. And many cars now have high-beam lights that sense oncoming traffic and dim automatically. The Ford Fusion and other mainstream cars have them, and drivers can buy after-market kits to add

er the systems, estimates they raise gas mileage by a minimum of 5 percent. Stop-start first surfaced in Europe, where gas prices are far higher. Now, nearly all gas-electric hybrid vehicles have it, as do some cars and trucks with conventional engines.

Victim of bullying in schools not ready to accept apologies DEAR ABBY: I was bullied from second grade all through school. In junior high the abuse was both emotional and physical, and it happened on a daily basis. My parents’ response was that maybe I was the problem — and if I wasn’t, people would stop picking on me. (That’s a letter for another day.) What would have been my 10year high school reunion was two weeks ago. Needless to say, I didn’t go. Since the reunion, however, I have received more than 30 messages via Facebook from former classmates. It seems I was the main topic of conversation at the reunion, mainly because everyone apparently wanted to apologize to me. Abby, I don’t know how to respond to these people. While I don’t doubt the sincerity of their apologies, I truly don’t want to have any contact with them (even on Facebook). At the same time, I don’t want to be rude and just ignore them. So far, I haven’t replied to any of their messages. I want to know if I must, and if so, what I should say? To be honest, I’d like to tell them all to go to hell, but I’m trying to be nice. — LOST FOR WORDS DEAR LOST FOR WORDS: You do not have to say anything

to any of these people, and you do not have to be “nice.” Silence sends a strong message, Abigail and it is the I’m recVan Buren one ommending. Understand Dear Abby that by apologizing they are trying to make themselves feel better. It’s also possible that maturity has caused them to realize what they did was wrong. However, you are not obligated to accept their apologies if doing so will make you feel worse. DEAR ABBY: I am a single mother struggling with my 12-year-old daughter. For the last three months she has been withdrawn, uncommunicative, rude, mean and treats me with contempt. We have been in counseling and are going back again, but I can’t ask people to stay with her while I go and recharge my spirit because she’s so rude to them as well. I need to know, Abby, what do other parents do to make it through this incredibly painful period in the lives of their teenager and themselves? — SIN-

GLE MOM IN CANADA DEAR SINGLE MOM: Any abrupt change in behavior should be regarded as a red flag. Your daughter should be evaluated by her pediatrician to be sure there isn’t an underlying cause. Could she have been molested, be using drugs, pills, alcohol, etc.? Do her friends act this way? Does she have friends? Changes like this don’t usually happen overnight. Was this behavior tolerated when she was smaller? If a child of mine behaved that way, she would be grounded and her cellphone and Internet privileges canceled until she was 30. As to whom you can leave her with while you “recharge,” does this girl have a father, an aunt, a grandparent who can give you respite? That’s how some single parents get a break. But if those resources are not available, you will have to deal with this (with the help of a more effective therapist than the one you were using) until your “problem child” becomes an adult. (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 www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.)

Horoscopes ARIES (March 21-April 19). Someone has to be looking out for the group, and that someone is you today. Luckily, you have experience with controlled chaos. You know how to have fun and still stay aware of exactly what’s going on. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Socializing will benefit you in unforeseen ways. A smile and a few words to a stranger will be all it takes to spark conversation. Listen to someone’s experiences. There’s something key for you in the exchange. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Everyone deals with stress differently. Your way today is to reframe the stressful event, naming it “an adventure” or “an opportunity.” Hang on tight, and ride the ups and downs of this roller coaster of a day. CANCER (June 22-July 22). It’s only natural to want to spend time with people who are like you, but it’s a delightfully different friend who will broaden your horizons. So don’t be afraid to reach out to someone outside of your comfort zone.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You may never jibe with a certain person as easily as you do with your best friends, but you can still have pleasant interactions. All it takes is one simple compromise to turn a relationship around. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). A deep, forgotten wound is still a wound. However, its pain may never have been felt, so it arranges scenarios in which new pain is a possibility. You’ll end the cycle when you seek healing for this long-ago hurt. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Though you continue to deliver with star quality, the attention will be diverted from you now. It’s likely that you’ll find this to be a pleasant change and a chance to relax. It’s not easy to always be “on.” SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Consider your options carefully. One possible course of action will be easier for you, but it will displease a friend. Avoid that one. It’s so not worth the avalanche of a reaction likely to follow.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). Soon you’ll steal the show, but you’re not quite ready to break out and do things on your own yet. For now, you’ll learn by being a quiet observer and listener extraordinaire. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It’s hard to try out a new approach (or perhaps a new personality) when you’re among people who know you well. Groups of strangers offer exciting possibilities for personal change. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Today’s events will require your patience and fortitude. Go to bed early because this challenging tone continues through tomorrow. If you’re rested and at your best, you’ll figure out how to benefit from the situation. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Travel will inspire you. But if you can’t get away, reading, viewing media and talking with people who’ve lived in different places are forms of travel that will work almost as well.

Lakers regroup without Howard BY BETH HARRIS Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Suddenly, next season isn’t looking so bright for the Los Angeles Lakers. Having been spurned by Dwight Howard, the Lakers are facing a tough season with an aging roster led by Kobe Bryant — and even he’s not ready to go. It’s not known when the five-time champion will return as he recovers from Achilles’ tendon surgery. Howard’s choice of Houston over Los Angeles leaves oft-criticized Pau Gasol as the Lakers’ lone remaining big man. If coach Mike D’Antoni were to pencil in his lineup now for opening night, there would be a few holes.

Besides Gasol, the Lakers figure to have Steve Nash, Steve Blake and Jordan Hill as starters. Metta World Peace could be waived via the league’s amnesty provision and Earl Clark is already gone, having agreed to a twoyear deal with Cleveland. Los Angeles must decide how much it can add while preserving the majority of the 2014 cap space, with Nash the only current player who has a deal past next June. A more severe luxury tax will take effect next season, possibly forcing the Lakers to trim spending in order to get under the threshold. The Lakers aren’t even looking like the best NBA team in their own arena. That status

belongs to the Clippers, who just lured Doc Rivers away from the Celtics to coach and retained Chris Paul on the first day of free agency. Bryant took part in the Lakers’ courtship of Howard on Tuesday, but then Bryant posted a photo on Instagram of himself and Gasol shortly after Howard’s decision on Friday night. Bryant captioned it with the Spanish words vamos (let’s go), juntos (together) and corazon (heart). “Naturally we’re disappointed,” Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak said in a statement Friday. “However, we will now move forward in a different direction with the future of the franchise and,

as always, will do our best to build the best team possible, one our great Lakers fans will be proud to support.” Howard’s tenure in Los Angeles was mostly unremarkable, with averages of 17.1 points and 12.4 rebounds in 76 games after playing his way back into shape following back surgery. He arrived last August from Orlando as part of a four-way trade After injuries to Bryant, Gasol and Nash, the Lakers were swept in the first round of the playoffs by San Antonio. Howard could have resigned with the Lakers for five years and $118 million. Now he’s looking at a deal with Houston for four years and $88 million.

The University of North Alabama will be hosting a baseball camp July 8-10 at Mike Lane Field. Cost for camp is $170 without lunch and $200 with lunch. Camp runs from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. each day, and is open to children grades 1-6. Registration can be done online via unabaseball.com, or from 8:30 to 9 a.m. on July 8. For more information on the camp, contact Mike Keehn at mjkeehn@una.edu.  

Basketball Tryouts The Mississippi Bulls AAU Basketball Club will be holding tryouts for 4th-6th grade boys at the Ripley Park and Recreation Gym on July 8 and 9. Tryouts will run from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. both nights. For more information contact Don Newton at (662) 5874074.  

Lady Aggies Golf Tournament The Kossuth Lady Aggies Softball Team will be hosting a golf tournament at the Shiloh Ridge Country Club on July 20. Registration for the tournament is $240 per team, or $60 per person, with all money raised contributing towards improvements to the softball team’s facilities. The fee includes golf cart rental and green fees. Those interested can register for the tournament at Shiloh Ridge. For more information contact Gary Mullins at (662) 223-6817 or (662) 223-0354.  

Try Tennis The Northeast MS Tennis Association is looking for individuals interested in learning to play tennis or to improve on their skills. Through a grant from the United State Tennis Association, the group is planning several “Try Tennis” events for ages 10-75. The group will also provide 6 free lessons with a local pro player for adults who join the UTSA for the first time. The organization also hosts local leagues for kids and adults.

Heyward leads Braves offense in rout of Phils Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — Jason Heyward hit a three-run homer to lead an Atlanta offense that scored in all but two innings, Tim Hudson pitched seven strong innings and the Braves set season highs for runs and hits in a 13-4 rout of the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday night. Andrelton Simmons and Dan Uggla also homered for Atlanta, which amassed 19 hits while snapping a three-game skid. Brian McCann had four hits and Simmons was a double shy of the cycle for the Braves. Hudson (5-7) allowed one run on five hits to earn his first victory since May 5. The right-hander had been 0-6 with a 4.50 ERA in his last 10 starts. He struck out four and did not walk a batter. Hudson, who retired the final 11 batters, looked more like the dominant pitcher who has made three All-Star appearances than the one who has struggled over the last two months. Hudson, who had his start pushed back a day due to neck stiffness, also the run support that he hadn’t been getting. He received 10 runs on Saturday after getting 14 combined during his winless streak. The Braves scored in every inning except the third and sixth innings. Michael Young homered for Philadelphia, which fell 8½ games behind the first-place Braves in the NL East.

Djokovic, Murray build Slam rivalry BY HOWARD FENDRICH Associated Press

LONDON — Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray are building their own Grand Slam rivalry, one that perhaps someday will merit mention alongside Roger Federer vs. Rafael Nadal, or Djokovic vs. Nadal. When the No. 1-ranked Djokovic faces No. 2 Murray to determine Wimbledon’s

champion today, it will be their fourth meeting in a major final — and third in less than a year. Djokovic beat Murray at the Australian Open in 2011. Murray beat Djokovic at the U.S. Open last September. Djokovic beat Murray at the Australian Open this January. That’s not yet quite up to the lofty standard set by Federer and Nadal, who played

each other in eight Grand Slam title matches from 2006-11. Djokovic and Nadal have contested five major finals since 2010, including a stretch of four in a row. While part of the appeal of the Federer-Nadal matchup lies in their vastly contrasting games — all the way down to the most basic level, righty vs. lefty — Djokovic-Murray features two guys who employ

rather similar styles. They are improving servers and fantastic returners who managed to silence big hitters in the semifinals Friday: Tough to decide whether it was more surprising that Djokovic had a 22-4 edge in aces during his 7-5, 4-6, 7-6 (2), 6-7 (6), 6-3 victory over No. 8 Juan Martin del Potro, Please see MEN | 11A

France’s Bartoli wins first grand slam title BY HOWARD FENDRICH Associated Press

LONDON — Ever since she was a kid, practicing until midnight with her father, Marion Bartoli went about playing tennis her own way. The two-handed strokes for backhands, forehands, even volleys. The hopping in place and practice swings between points, which help her focus. The unusual setup for serves

— no ball-bouncing, arms crossed, right wrist resting on her left thumb before the toss. Whatever works, right? This unique Wimbledon, appropriately enough, produced a unique champion in the ambidextrous Bartoli, the 15th-seeded Frenchwoman who won her first Grand Slam title by beating 23rd-seeded Sabine Lisicki of Germany 6-1, 6-4 Saturday in an error-

filled, one-sided final that was far from a classic. “It’s always been a part of my personality to be different. I think being just like the other one is kind of boring. I really embrace the fact of being a bit different and doing something that not everyone is,” said the 28-year-old Bartoli, who plays tennis righthanded but signs autographs with her left. “I actually love

that part of my game, being able to have something different.” She certainly stands alone. This was Bartoli’s 47th Grand Slam tournament, the most ever played by a woman before earning a championship. She is the only woman in the 45-year Open era to win Please see WOMEN | 11A

Davis tops fan vote, O’s have 3 All-Star starters BY HOWIE RUMBERG Associated Press

NEW YORK — Baltimore slugger Chris Davis powered past Detroit Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera in the final week to claim the most fan votes in All-Star game balloting, and Washington

outfielder Bryce Harper used a final surge to win a spot in the National League’s starting lineup. Right-hander Max Scherzer was one of a major leaguebest six Tigers chosen for the All-Star game July 16 at Citi Field in New York. St. Louis

catcher Yadier Molina led the NL fan vote announced Saturday night. He is one of the Cardinals’ five All-Stars, tops in the NL. “I think any time you are getting that recognition not only from your fan base but from everybody across the

nation I think it feels good to know that people are watching,” Davis said. Mets young ace Matt Harvey and third baseman David Wright will represent the host team in the 84th All-Star Please see VOTE | 11A

or that Murray had a 20-9 edge in aces during his 6-7 (2), 6-4, 6-4, 6-3 victory over No. 24 Jerzy Janowicz. They also are cover-every-inch hustlers who can switch from defense to offense, quick as can be. “There is some similarities there, in terms of if you look at stats and stuff. I mean, both of us return well. “That’s probably the strongest part of our games. Both play predominantly from the baseline,” said Murray, who is aiming to become the first British man to win Wimbledon since Fred Perry in 1936. “We both move well, but a different sort of movement,” Murray continued. “He’s extremely flexible and he slides into shots, even on the courts here. He slides more. He’s quite a bit lighter than me. So I’d say I probably move with more power, and he’s much more flexible than me.” In the women’s final Saturday, 15th-seeded Marion Bartoli of France won her first Grand Slam title, beating 23rd-seeded Sabine Lisicki of Germany 6-1, 6-4. Djokovic, the 2011 Wimbledon champion, is seeking his seventh Grand Slam title overall and will be playing in his 11th major final. Murray is 1-5 in major finals. He has reached the championship matches at each of the last four Grand Slam tournament’s he entered; he skipped this year’s French Open because of a bad back. Murray didn’t need to expend too much energy to get past Janowicz, but Djokovic’s win against del Potro was physically and emotionally sapping. It lasted 4 hours, 43 minutes, a record for a Wimbledon semifinal, and was filled with intense points. “I did play a very long match, but I had situations before where I had to recover even just in 24 hours for the match the next day,” Djokovic said Saturday. “I kind of got used to it and I know my body.”

WOMEN CONTINUED FROM 10A

Wimbledon playing twofisted shots off both wings (Monica Seles, Bartoli’s inspiration for that unusual style, collected her nine major titles elsewhere). Until Saturday, it had been more than 1½ years since Bartoli won a tournament at any level. Until these last two weeks, Bartoli’s record in 2013 was 14-12, and she had failed to make it past the quarterfinals anywhere. Asked how to explain how she went from that sort of mediocre season to winning seven matches in a row at Wimbledon, never dropping a set, Bartoli briefly closed her eyes, then laughed heartily.

“Well,” Bartoli said, spreading her arms wide, “that’s me!” Unlike Lisicki, a firsttime major finalist who was admittedly overwhelmed by the occasion and teared up in the second set, Bartoli already had been on this stage, with the same stakes. Back in 2007, Bartoli won only five games during a twoset loss to Venus Williams in the Wimbledon final. “I know how it feels, Sabine,” Bartoli said during the on-court trophy ceremony. “And I’m sure, believe me, you’ll be there one more time. I have no doubt about it.” Bartoli became the first woman in the Open era to win Wimbledon without facing anyone seeded in

the top 10 — her highestrated opponent was No. 17 Sloane Stephens of the United States in the quarterfinals. That’s in part because of all of the injuries and surprises, including exits for No. 2 Victoria Azarenka, No. 3 Maria Sharapova, No. 5 Sara Errani, No. 7 Angelique Kerber, No. 9 Caroline Wozniacki and No. 10 Maria Kirilenko by the end of the second round. Lisicki was an entirely different player Saturday, rattled by every little thing, even the walk downstairs from the locker room to Centre Court and the final-afternoon ritual of players carrying bouquets of flowers when they enter the arena.

was one of the 68 players selected. The 43-year-old career saves leader will hop across town as part of his retirement tour for a 13th All-Star appearance, second most by a pitcher behind Hall of Famer Warren Spahn, who made 17 teams. “The fact that I went through all the adversity and I’m standing here talking about the All-Star game ... it’s a privilege,” said Rivera, who has 29 saves this year after missing nearly all of last season with a torn knee ligament. Davis finished with 8,272,243 fan votes to edge Cabrera, who had 8,013,874, for his first AllStar selection. Davis has 33 homers, seventh best before the break in big league history. Davis is the second first-time All-Star to lead the voting, joining Seattle outfielder Ichiro Suzuki (2001). The first baseman with the cool nickname of “Crush” is one of three Orioles to be selected by fans, the first time that

has happened since Cal Ripken Jr. was one of the picks in 1997. Shortstop J.J. Hardy and center fielder Adam Jones will take the field with Davis. Baltimore third baseman Manny Machado was picked as a reserve. Scherzer is the first pitcher to start a season 13-0 since Rgoer Clemens in 1986. He was joined from Detroit by first baseman Prince Fielder, shortstop Jhonny Peralta, and outfielder Torii Hunter. Tigers manager Jim Leyland, who will run the AL squad after leading Detroit to the World Series, picked his ace Justin Verlander for the team. “This is not a simple thing, but I’m proud of it,” Leyland said. “We worked hard on it. We’re not going to be perfect. I put a lot of time and thought into it. I had a lot of help. It’s still not going to make everybody happy. There’s going to be guys who should be All-Stars who are left off. That happens every year.”

VOTE CONTINUED FROM 10A

game. Harvey received the most votes among NL pitchers in the player balloting, outpacing the Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw. Cuban defector Yasiel Puig wasn’t picked — not yet, at least. The Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder with just one breathless month in the big leagues is among five candidates for the final NL spot, with fans able to vote online through Thursday. Puig is joined in the final NL five by shortstop Ian Desmond of Washington, first basemen Freddie Freeman of Atlanta, Adrian Gonzalez of the Los Angeles Dodgers, and outfielder Hunter Pence of San Francisco. The American League’s five are all relievers: Detroit’s Joaquin Benoit, Toronto’s Steve Delabar, the Yankees’ David Robertson, Texas’ Tanner Scheppers, and Boston’s Koji Uehara.

The Maggies are the awards for outstanding achievement at Corinth Theatre-Arts.

Corinth Theatre-Arts gives out annual Maggie Awards BY BOBBY J. SMITH bjsmith@dailycorinthian.com

It was one of the year’s biggest nights for local theatre as Corinth Theatre-Arts celebrated another successful season and awarded the coveted “Maggies.” The annual Magnolia Awards ceremony and members’ meeting wraps up the season by announcing the Maggie awards and introducing the CT-A board of directors and officers for the upcoming season. The award for the 2012-2013 season’s outstanding youth production went to “Footloose.” The production of “Nunsense: The Mega-Musical” racked up the award for outstanding adult production. More youth winners for the season were: outstanding ensemble, Maurryn Bingham, Ashley Austin and Kristina Nunley as Rusty, Urleen and Wendy Jo, “Footloose”; featured actor, Kennedy Curtis as Tigger, “The House at Pooh Corner”; featured actress, Ellice

Patterson as Ethel McCormack, “Footloose”; supporting actor, Jonathan Huwe as Reverend Shaw Moore, “Footloose”; supporting actress, Mikaela Hancock as Eeyore, “The House at Pooh Corner”; leading actor, Thomas Elam as Ren McCormack, “Footloose”; and leading actress, Marlee Sue Bradley as Ariel Moore, “Footloose.” Adult winners were: outstanding set, “Miracle on 34th Street”; technical achievement, Casey Duke and run crew, “Footloose”; artistic achievement, Amber Fletcher, costumes and make-up, “The Wizard of Oz”; ensemble, Emili Gann, Jenny Jordan, Leah Petty and Tina Carreon as Novices and Wilhelm, “Nunsense: The Mega-Musical”; actor or actress in a cameo role, Randy Duke as Mr. Justice Millhouse, “Whose Life is it Anyway?”; debut actor, Paul Anderson as Office Welch, “Rumors”; debut actress, Cynthia Potter as Sister Anderson, “Whose Life is it Anyway?”; featured actor, Dan Marsh as Er-

Leaving the CT-A board are James “Sonny” Boatman and youth representative Mikaela Hancock.

The Maggies 2013 began in the theater lobby as the CT-A Guild hosted a social hour. Then audience members took their seats in the festively decorated theater, where emcees Dan Marsh and Leland Hendrix entertained the crowd with their opening number of “Who Will Win the Maggie?” sung to “Wouldn’t It Be Lovely?” Maggie Award nominations come from anonymous seasonticket holders who have attended each production during the season. They submit names to the CT-A Awards and Nominations Committee for potential nomination. The committee collects and tallies the nominations and sends ballots to CT-A seasonticket holders, who vote for the winners. Special thanks for the 20122013 Maggies go to CT-A member Paul Schumacher for the awards plaques and to all of the other volunteers, supporters and donors who made the evening possible.

Would you pay $50 to see a movie? Some fans did The Associated Press

NEW YORK — So this was the deal: For $50, you got to see Brad Pitt’s hotly anticipated zombie thriller “World War Z” before all your friends. You also got 3D glasses to keep, popcorn and sodas, a poster, the DVD when it comes out, and an intimate dinner with Brad. Just kidding! No dinner with Brad. But hundreds of fans did pay $50 for the other stuff last week in a small-scale marketing experiment in five theaters — and the studio, Paramount Pictures, says it worked well. With all the recent talk about future movie ticket prices climbing into the stratosphere, is it a harbinger of things to come? Before you scoff, it’s worth noting that premium pricing happens all the time: in Broadway theaters, where you could get second-row seats for Tom Hanks in “Lucky Guy” this week if you paid $300 a pop, or at concerts, where you could pay well over $1,000 for, say, a Rolling Stones VIP package. At Yankee Stadium, a top-tier Legends seat can also top $1,000 per game, but season holders can get perks like a free trip to spring training. Still, the idea of $50 for a movie strikes a lot of

fans the wrong way. “That’s possibly the craziest thing I’ve ever heard,” said Dillon Mahoney, 19, a student at the University of Pennsylvania, waiting in line for a regular “World War Z” showing. “I have a hard time paying 50 bucks for a Phillies game!” “That’s my dinner,” noted another Philadelphia moviegoer, Cheyanne Farmer, 15. “That’s my allowance,” added Rahyaan Hall, her friend. “For a month.” In New York though, one fan did some quick calculating and saw a reasonable value. “With the DVD and all those other things you mention, it probably comes to more than $50,” said Alex Leighton, 24, who’d just bought tickets to “World War Z.” ‘‘So you’re getting more than the movie.” That’s the point that Paramount wants to make. “This ended up being a headline that didn’t really represent what the offer was,” says Megan Colligan, the studio’s president of domestic distribution and marketing. “These people stepped up and made their commitment to us, and we gave them a great experience.” That experience, which involved just one show each at five theaters across the country, in-

“When you think of it, it’s strange to have an industry where every product costs the same, no matter how good or popular. I think consumers are smart — they can figure out that ‘Avatar’ costs a lot more to make than a romantic comedy. And we see with 3D movies that price flexibility is possible, for a different viewing experience.” Tom Adams Analyst and director of U.S. media, IHS Electronics & Media cluded not merely seeing the film two days early and the free stuff; the “mega-ticket” buyers also got to bring friends along at regular price and they got a party atmosphere, including a DJ and photo booths. Colligan says that four of the theaters sold out — they averaged 250 seats each — and one was 80 percent full. She wouldn’t get more specific in terms of revenue, but said: “It was a fun, positive experience for everyone.” The offer might have gone largely unnoticed, had it not been for its timing: The special showings came just a few days after Hollywood heavyweights Steven Spielberg

and George Lucas, speaking at the University of Southern California, issued dire predictions about the future of movie prices, with Lucas estimating tickets could end up at “$50, maybe $100, maybe $150,” and Spielberg predicting differentiated pricing according to a film’s budget — with the next “Iron Man” costing $25 perhaps, but the next “Lincoln” costing $7. How realistic were those projections? As for the Lucas estimates, there’s no way prices could reach that high, says Tom Adams, analyst and director of U.S. media for IHS Electronics & Media. “I just don’t see what we could add to

the experience to make it worth that much,” he says. But differentiated pricing is much more realistic, he says. “When you think of it, it’s strange to have an industry where every product costs the same, no matter how good or popular,” he says. “I think consumers are smart — they can figure out that ‘Avatar’ costs a lot more to make than a romantic comedy. And we see with 3D movies that price flexibility is possible, for a different viewing experience.” At Paramount, Colligan points out that her studio’s $50 experiment is not really about Lucas’ dire price projections, but about the need to find new, creative ways to market the movie experience, both in theaters and at home. “This is all part of wanting to take risks, to develop new strategies of how we do business,” she says. “There’s going to be more experimenting to come. You can’t do what you did 10 years ago and have the same results.” The advantages of a “mega-ticket”-like scheme, if people go for it, are clear for the studio (Paramount partnered with Regal Entertainment Group, the large movietheater circuit). First, you get customers buying the

DVD at the same time they see the movie, rather than buying it later and only if they really loved the film. Perhaps even more important, you help generate early buzz, with moviegoers spreading the news on social networks two days before opening. It’s like having theaters full of critics ready to post their reviews — but here, the critics are fans, predisposed to loving the film. The upside for fans? They get to see the film early — not a small thing, depending on the fan and the movie. It may work even better for installments of huge franchises, mused Leighton, the New York movie fan, and his friend, Florian Baier, 22. “I wouldn’t have done it for this movie, but maybe for the next ‘Star Wars’ film or maybe ‘Lord of the Rings,’” Leighton said. “I’d also be checking the online reviews — I’d have to know the movie was good.” Added Baier: “I wouldn’t do it for the DVD. That is not a draw.” Leighton agreed: “There are easier ways to watch online. If I even have the time.” Note to studios: Maybe you should think about offering that dinner with Brad, after all.

Finding humor during difficult times Someone was always ready to crack a joke to ease tension For some time Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had it in mind to share a few of the more humorous anecdotes about the Battle of Corinth, and how a laugh or smile can ease a stressful situation. I know of Tom a number such Parson of incidents Park Ranger but I got to thinking of how often humor and battle were combined. Just for fun I Googled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Humor in difficult timesâ&#x20AC;? and I got 5,290,000 hits in .26 seconds. This subject is nothing new, particularly to men who have been in combat. In any dangerous situation there is always someone ready to crack a joke to ease the tension. Often itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just an observation of some act in the middle of the peril that seems so funny or ludicrous that it has to be shared even if the bullets and bombs are flying. As amazing as it may seem, there was laughter while Washington was crossing the Delaware, on the beaches at Iwo Jima and even in the jungles of Vietnam. Shoot, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll bet a couple of Roman centurions were telling elephant jokes at Zama just before they whipped Hannibal. And of course it happened during the Battle of Corinth as well. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

Sam Byers of the 5th Iowa who freely admitted he was too excited to be scared. Colonel James Gordon of the 2nd Mississippi Cavalry wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite as excited as Byers. He was waiting patiently as the Confederates were preparing to attack the Union defenders on Oliverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

Gordon watched as a brass band, all mounted on horseback, came forward to play a few tunes, just out of range of the enemy muskets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the rosy realm of childhood my fancy had pictured the bands discoursing martial music while the soldiers were fighting.

mind of this fairy tale.â&#x20AC;? Instead of an inspirational song the musicians began to play â&#x20AC;&#x153;Listen to the Mockingbird,â&#x20AC;? a popular ditty of the day. Suddenly a round of artillery fired from the heights struck the tree next to the band, injuring no one but showering the group with leaves and splinters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Mockingbird hushed its dulcet strain and the boys shouted with glee as the band â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;skedaddledâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to the rear.â&#x20AC;? The concert was over. The Southerners charged up the slope and were soon approaching the enemy who were crouched behind the old â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beauregard Lineâ&#x20AC;? of earthworks. The Confederate bullets were falling short of the 81st Ohio and the men were being showered by dirt and debris kicked up by the musket balls. Pvt. John Blake, known for his profanity, suddenly stood up and yelled out, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shoot higher, you rebels, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing no good!â&#x20AC;? Later in the day the 81st was lying in the weeds near the White House waiting for yet another Confederate charge. Sgt. John Mader scooted a bit to the side so he was behind his captain who was standing and looking across the field. Mader nudged the man next to him, pointed to the captainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s foot and said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got to go through that to get to me.â&#x20AC;? When the Union position finally collapsed a number of the soldiers of the 12th Iowa ran as fast as they could. Some were captured, but not Private Silas Crossman. A bullet had destroyed his musket and he was being chased by a Confederate who kept calling on Silas to surrender. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The boys say that he so stretched his legs in running that his cartridge box struck the ground at every jump.â&#x20AC;? Some of his comrades had made it to safety and laughed as he â&#x20AC;&#x153;reached a rail fence, turned a somersault over it, and lay exhausted so near our lines that the pursuer dared not follow.â&#x20AC;? A half a mile to the west Col. Marcellus Crocker commanded a brigade of Union troops who had been fighting desperately for forty-five minutes near Battery F. Col. William Belknap of the 15th Iowa stood next to him as they watched the enemy on the far side of the

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I raised my musket and blazed away at nobody in particular. A comrade in front of me afterward said I â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;nearly shot his ear off.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; He glanced back once, he said, and I was only laughing.â&#x20AC;? Sam Byers Sergeant railroad tracks. (This spot is along Edgewood Drive just northeast of the hospital.) Crocker looked off in the distance and asked, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do you know, old fellow, what I am thinking about?â&#x20AC;? Belknap looked at his boss and shook his head. Crocker grinned wryly, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wish I was back in Des Moines.â&#x20AC;? Then there was the Confederate soldier from Missouri who let the excitement get the better of him and jumped astride a captured cannon; and immediately launched himself straight into the air to get off the red hot iron. His comrades had no pity and doubled in laughter. After it had cooled a few minutes another soldier hopped onto the barrel and felt so cocky he smarted off to Col. James McCown, commander of the 5th Missouri Infantry. The officer sat atop his horse and the lowly private mocked him, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, Colonel, you mounted fellows are tolerably useful in camp, and serve a good purpose on the drill ground but we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need you much in a fight.â&#x20AC;? It was the foot soldiers who had performed the hard work and the Colonel grinned back at him good-naturedly. The action resumed the following morning but one problem after another delayed the Confederate attack until well into the morning. The Union soldiers waited in the sun and began to grouse about their predicament. One of them complained, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re goinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to take us, why donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t they come and do it in the cool of the morning? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be hot after a while!â&#x20AC;? The thermometer stood at 94 degrees. The first charge was made by the division of Brigadier General Martin Green. The Confederates rushed forward and took Battery Powell and very close by a staff officer found General Green literally drenched in blood. The frantic officer asked him where he was hit and Martin indicated it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t his blood but that of his horse. The horse had been hit three times and Green was trying to staunch the wounds when another bullet hit the animal in the forehead, dropping it to the ground. The

nearby bushes were being plucked clean of their twigs and branches as bullets whizzed by Green on either side. Finally a bullet just grazed his hip and he looked up as if just noticing he had been serving as a target. He turned to the other officer and quietly remarked, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe those d___d scoundrels are trying to hit me.â&#x20AC;? The heavy fighting shifted to the area around Battery Robinett where Captain Oscar Jackson of the 63rd Ohio became concerned for his faithful servant â&#x20AC;&#x153;Old Mose.â&#x20AC;? Mose was a run-away slave who would not leave Jacksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s side and the young captain urged the man to take shelter behind a nearby log. Mose contented himself to sit on the log until a piece of an exploding shell struck between his legs. At last Mose saw the wisdom in the matter and muttered, â&#x20AC;&#x153;This fellow better git to the other side of the log.â&#x20AC;? He rolled backwards, â&#x20AC;&#x153;like a turtle,â&#x20AC;? and slid off to the rear side of the log. When bullets began to strike the other side as well, Mose stood up and shouted, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hard to tell which side of this log is better to be at!â&#x20AC;? And what of Sam Byers, the sergeant who said he was â&#x20AC;&#x153;too excitedâ&#x20AC;? to be scared? His very first experience with battle came on the second day of the Battle of Corinth. The 5th Iowa Infantry was way over on the Union right, (near the Jr. High School on 5th Street). The regiment was in double ranks with Sam in back when the order came to fire. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I raised my musket and blazed away at nobody in particular. A comrade in front of me afterward said I â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;nearly shot his ear off.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; He glanced back once, he said, and I was only laughing.â&#x20AC;? Everyone who fought in the battle was scared. Everyone. The soldiers considered â&#x20AC;&#x153;braveâ&#x20AC;? were simply those who could suppress the fear enough to do their duty. Sometimes a simple smile or laugh would make all the difference. Tom Parson is a National Park Service ranger at the Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center.

Outdoors

Sunday, July 7, 2013

It’s never too early to plan for deer season It’s been usually pleasant for the beginning of a Mississippi summer, which is a stark contrast from the hot and sticky conditions we’re accustomed to having at this time of the year. Normally, it’s so hot you don’t want to leave the AC and stick your head out, much less do anything else. The cooler than usual weather has been a welcoming sight to all outdoor enthusiasts and, apparently, the fish like it too. Fishermen have and continue to do very well on area lakes in their pursuits of bass, bream, and catfish. But regardless of how well the fish are biting, when the calendar turns over to July, many sportsmen who have a “rabid”

desire to hunt start making preparations for deer season. Bows David get dusted Green off and tuned, inOutdoors ventories of hunting supplies are taken and replenished, trail cameras often get set out for advance scouting, and the glassing of field edges are some of the first things done. All are noteworthy first steps, but none of these should be the main priority. Making sure you have a quality place to hunt and maybe set up a trail camera should be at the top of the agenda. There’s plenty of time yet for all the other stuff.

Just because you had a good place to hunt last season doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll have the same desired access to the parcel of land again this year. Things change. Maybe the ownership of the land has changed hands to someone who doesn’t allow hunting, or maybe the timber has been clearcut as bare as a baby’s behind, or maybe someone has come in and leased the property out from under you. Over my 30-some-odd years of hunting whitetails, I’ve had to look for a new place to hunt numerous times. Scenarios like the ones previously mentioned play out all the time, which makes it doubly important to locate and secure hunting rights on properties well

before season opens instead of having to make a last ditch effort in trying to find one. Mississippi has lots of quality open public hunting lands but, by choice, most hunters would prefer their own personal honey-hole away from the masses where the only intrusion would be that of a buck walking into their sights. Attaining permission on private lands is far from being easy; however, it can be done if it’s handled the right way. First impressions mean everything. When meeting a landowner for the first time, I wouldn’t advise you to wear full camo clothing as if you were headed off to war. They’re going to already know what you are there for without ever

opening your mouth. Instead, dress nice and talk courteously in a way that would let them get to know you better before popping the big question. And always address them with “yes sir” or “yes ma’am,” whichever is appropriate. Odds of getting permission are much better if they feel like the person they’re talking with is not a total stranger. If or when permission is authorized, always respect the land. You’re on someone else’s property, so make sure to keep your water bottles, tobacco canisters or any other unwanted debris picked up. Leave the environment the way you found it. Otherwise, your tenure for hunting the land could come to an abrupt halt. It doesn’t hurt to say “thank you,” either. And

as another way of showing your appreciation, offer them some deer meat if you happen to bag a deer this season. The thoughtful gestures could go a long way in securing the hunting rights for a long time to come. Though it’s only the beginning of summer and the fish are practically jumping in the boat, it’s never too early to start thinking and planning ahead for deer season.

July 4th saluted with fireworks, parades, parties The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Extravagant displays of Fourth of July fireworks lit up the skies around the nation, including 19 single bursts in Arizona to remember the firefighters killed in a wildfire, the Statue of Liberty reopened eight months after it was shuttered by Superstorm Sandy, and President Obama urged citizens to live up to the words of the Declaration of Independence. Four barges carrying 40,000 shells on the Hudson River on Thursday night unleashed a barrage of brilliant reds, whites and blues — some in shapes and smiley faces — as spectators marveled at the classic New York overthe-top fireworks display, snapping videos and pictures on their cellphones. “They’re awesome,” said a beaming 10-yearold Johnny Deluca, of Melbourne, Fla., while watching the 25-minute show titled “It Begins

with a Spark” in Manhattan with his parents, Joe and Marie. “He wanted to see the largest fireworks show in the world so we planned our vacation specifically to see the show in Manhattan,” added Marie Deluca. In Arizona, a fire chief read the names of the 19 firefighters killed last weekend battling a wildfire while 19 single fireworks burst overhead. “Less than 100 hours ago, the city of Prescott, the state of Arizona and the nation lost 19 of the best, the bravest firefighters ever dispatched into the forest,” fire department division chief Don Devendorf said. The commemorative starbursts were followed by a raucous 20-minute display choreographed to patriotic pop songs, which drew cheering, grins and shouts of “America!” In California, at least 14 people were injured

Cryptoquip

by malfunctioning fireworks at a large community park in Simi Valley. Officials say more than a dozen people were taken to area hospitals with minor to moderate injuries. No other details were immediately available. Earlier Thursday, hundreds lined up to be among the first to board boats destined for Lady Liberty, including New Yorker Heather Leykam and her family. “This, to us, Liberty Island, is really about a rebirth,” said Leykam, whose mother’s home was destroyed during the storm. “It is a sense of renewal for the city and the country. We wouldn’t have missed it for the world.” Nationwide, Boston hosted its first large gathering since the marathon bombing that killed three and injured hundreds, and Philadelphia, Washington and New Orleans hosted large holiday con-

certs. A Civil War reenactment commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg drew as many as 40,000 people to Pennsylvania. In Arizona, sober tributes were planned for 19 firefighters who died this week battling a blaze near Yarnell. Interior Secretary Sally Jewell, speaking at the reopening of the Statue of Liberty, choked up as she told the crowd she was wearing a purple ribbon in memory of the fallen firefighters. “Nineteen firefighters lost their lives in the line of duty, and we as a nation stand together,” she said through tears. The island was decorated with star-spangled bunting, but portions remain blocked off with large construction equipment, and the main ferry dock was boarded up. Repairs to brick walkways and docks were ongoing. But much of the work

has been completed since Sandy swamped the 12acre island in New York Harbor, and visitors were impressed. “It’s stunning, it’s beautiful,” said Elizabeth Bertero, 46, of California’s Sonoma County. “They did a great job rebuilding. You don’t really notice that anything happened.” The statue itself was unharmed, but the land took a beating. Railings broke, docks and paving stones were torn up and buildings were flooded. The storm destroyed electrical systems, sewage pumps and boilers. Hundreds of National Park Service workers from as far away as California and Alaska spent weeks cleaning mud and debris. “It is one of the most enduring icons of America, and we pulled it off — it’s open today,” National Park Service Director Jonathan Jarvis said. “Welcome.”

The statue was open for a single day last year — Oct. 28, the day before Sandy struck. It had been closed the previous year for security upgrades. Neighboring Ellis Island remains closed and there has been no reopening date set. Elsewhere in New York, throngs of revelers packed Brooklyn’s Coney Island to see competitive eating champ Joey Chestnut scarf down 69 hot dogs to break a world record and win the title for a seventh year at the 98th annual Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest. Sonya Thomas defended her title with nearly 37 dogs. In his weekly radio address from Washington, Obama urged Americans to work to secure liberty and opportunity for their own children and future generations. The first family was to host U.S. servicemen and women at the White House for a cookout.

Bartlett vocalist among selected Stax Music Academy students The Associated Press

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Stax Music Academy vocalist Tia Henderson remembers how nervous she was before her first talent show in elementary school. But with some encouragement from her mother on the sidelines, the young singer took the stage and belted out a song by gospel duo Mary Mary. She won the competition and took home $100, not too shabby of a prize for a grade-schooler. “I’ve been singing all my life,” Tia said on a recent day during a break from her summer studies at Stax. “There’s no other way for me to express how I feel.” Success in singing has continued to follow the confident and outgoing 17-year-old from Bartlett. She was recently among eight Stax students accepted into a prestigious five-week summer performance program at Berklee College of Music in Boston. The program starts July 6. Tia, a rising senior at Memphis Academy of Science and Engineering, learned she’d won a scholarship to the Berklee summer program during an awards ceremony at Stax. The other students selected are Christian Dukes and graduates Tangela Mathis, Andrew McNeill, Jeremy Wright, Carl Maguire, Alan Maguire and Justin Hicks. “I was the last one to be

“My grandmother always told me, ‘You’re going to be a star.’ So, I have to make sure I fulfill what she told me.” Tia Henderson Young singer called,” she said. “They said my name and I just dropped my head. It was like one of those TV moments.” In 2010, Tia started in the after-school and summer music programs at Stax, where students receive vocal and instrumental instruction and study all aspects of the music industry. Tia, whose musical influences include Lalah Hathaway, Anita Baker, Jill Scott and Carrie Underwood, has performed with Stax groups in New York, Berlin, Germany, Boston and Connecticut, in addition to performances in Memphis. A Summer Soul Tour featuring about 25 students is being planned for late July. Tia, who enjoys performing neo soul, gospel, jazz and country, said studying at Stax has given her knowledge of the music business and has taught her how to entertain and speak intelli-

gently about music. She’s looked up to by many of her peers, literally because she’s tall, but also because of her powerful voice, positive and fun personality and commitment. “Tia not only has a beautiful voice, but she is a leader and the other students look up to her,” said Stax songwriting teacher Randy Haspel. On a recent day, Tia, wearing sunglasses propped on her head, shiny frog earrings and colorful bead bracelets, walked the halls of Stax to friendly greetings of “Hey baby!” and “Hey T!” from her classmates. Brenda Tindle said she’s long known her daughter had a special talent. Even as a child, Tia could feel the emotion in a song and one time even cried to Mariah Carey’s “Hero” while riding in the back seat of the car. “She loves to sing,” Tindle said. “She just wants to uplift people’s spirits and touch people’s hearts.” The powerhouse singer, who also likes painting, is a member of her school’s bowling team and has a dog named Jazzie, said she hopes to one day be a famous entertainer.

LONDON — Amy Winehouse seemed to live in public, but her fans never knew the private person. An exhibition at London’s Jewish Museum aims to reveal an intimate side to a troubled star who was also, in the words of her older brother Alex, “simply a little Jewish kid from North London with a big talent.” “Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait” brings together items from the late singer’s London childhood, her stageschool years and her short but stratospheric career in music — from her first guitar to a posthumous Grammy Award. By the time she died in 2011 at the age of 27, Winehouse was a largerthan-life figure whose battles with drugs and alcohol, splashed across front pages around the world, sometimes seemed to overshadow her tal-

ent. The exhibition shows that she was also a young woman who loved music, loved London and loved her family. “It’s a story that people don’t know about Amy, her family story,” museum chief executive Abigail Morris said Tuesday. “You can forget there’s a person behind the hype.” Morris said the show was a natural for the Jewish Museum. Winehouse came from a close-knit Jewish family, and the museum is in Camden, the neighborhood where the singer lived for most of her adult life — where she saw gigs and played them, browsed in secondhand record stores and drank in pubs. It’s also the neighborhood where she died of accidental alcohol poisoning at her home in July 2011. Assembled with help from Alex Winehouse and his wife Riva, the exhibition grew from the

Winehouse family’s offer to donate one of Amy’s dresses. It expanded into a celebration of her Jewish roots, her family and her home city. “The more we talked the more we realized the exhibition wasn’t going to be about her dresses and her clothes,” said curator Elizabeth Selby — though there are several outfits on display, from the shimmery blue dress Winehouse wore at the 2008 Glastonbury Festival to the tracksuits she preferred at home. “It’s about her roots and her family life.” The exhibition, which opens Wednesday and runs to Sept. 15, traces the singer’s family tree back to great-great-grandfather Harris Winehouse, who came to England from Belarus in 1890. Like many other 19th-century migrants, he hoped to reach New York, but landed up in London’s East End.
