Musical icon Charlie Daniels coming to arena Country artist, songwriter Murphy also will take Arena stage Aug. 24 BY STEVE BEAVERS

“The Devil Went Down to Georgia” in 1979. The group who wrote and performed the popular song is coming to the Crossroads Arena. The Charlie Daniels Band is set for its first appearance at the multi-purpose facility come Aug. 24. Country music artist and songwriter David Lee Murphy and Corinth’s own Maty Noyes will be opening for Daniels. “During his 50-plus year career, Charlie has scored hits on the rock, country, pops and Christian charts,” said Crossroads Arena General Manager Tammy Genovese. “The man is a musical icon and another first for the Arena.” Daniels, a talented and showy fiddler, is widely known for his country and southern rock music.

City nixes park board expansion BY JEBB JOHNSTON

A proposed expansion of the park commission membership has been scrapped. The Board of Mayor and Aldermen had been moving toward an ordinance amendment to expand the board from five to seven members, but Alderman Ben Albarracin said the Board of Supervisors does not support the change. The board voted in Thursday’s meeting to dismiss the item from the agenda. The proposed park expansion had been mentioned as a reason for increasing the membership of the commission, which consists of members appointed by the city and county boards. Please see BOARD | 2A

He is best known for the number one country hit about the devil’s attempt to steal a young man’s soul through a fiddle contest. The song, featured in the 1980 movie Urban Cowboy, was the band’s biggest hit, reaching number three on the Billboard Hot 100. “The band has always been known for its instrumental dexterity, but they are also notorious for their down-home, good-oldboy attitude,” said Genovese. Daniels was awarded a Grammy Award for Best Country Vocal Performance in 1979 for the his top hit. In 2008, the 76-year-old was honored as a member of the Grand Ole Opry.

Hillside New Beginnings Project enriches the lives of others through horses BY MARK BOEHLER

MICHIE, Tenn. — On a rural hillside near the corner where the counties of Alcorn, Hardin, McNairy and Tishomingo come together, people arrive for a new beginning through therapy with horses. A closer look over the 12-stall barn and 33 acres reveals there are others present for a new start. Many of the dozen horses grazing in the pasture are rescue animals with abused backgrounds. And the couple who started, own and manage the operation lost previous spouses to cancer before they met, then agreed to pour their life savings in this dream of providing hope for others in their own new venture.

This is the story of Hillside New Beginnings, where horses and humans bond to tackle problems, overcome fears and enrich their lives.

Meet the Baileys

The dream actually begins south of the border at the El Dorado Royale in Cancun, Mexico. David Bailey lost his spouse and 13-year companion, Brin Hendrix, after her battle with breast cancer. Now 57, David is a Hardin County native who spent a dozen years in Texas and 15 in Mississippi. Many of those years were in the auto parts business, but David is a self-proclaimed “maintenance man,” good with tools, building and repair. David and Brin had a dream

Yancey’s Circle Y sets in motion Genesis Christian Academy BY STEVE BEAVERS

Keith Yancey and his family have opened the Genesis Christian Academy.

Circle Y is starting over. The restaurant and family event center is getting into the business of making a difference in the lives of young people. Genesis Christian Academy has been formed with registration for first through 12th grade students taking place now. “It is a new beginning,” said academy director Keith Yancey of the family-owned business. “We have so many opportunities to get back to teaching kids the basics of life here … I am looking at this as a mission to help children.” The academy – promoted as “The Beginning of a Great Education” by the Yancey family, opened its doors in March of last year. On Aug. 5, the private

school begins its first full year. “I have been working on it about a year, trying to get the courage to do it,” said the director. “I tried twice to back out of it, but it was meant to be.” What was once the main dinning room is now a classroom filled with desks and a computer at each station. Positive signs encouraging students line the walls. There are also numerous subject workbooks ready to be handed out. “A lot of kids in public schools are slipping through the cracks,” said Yancey. “We feel we can offer more one-on-one help.” Genesis Christian Academy will incorporate the Biblebased, non-denominational curriculum called Accelerated Christian Education.

“The purpose of GCA is to educate and train the whole student, spiritually, intellectually, physically and socially,” added the director. “Everything we do is geared toward families and children.” Although a separate entity from the Circle Y Day Care and Learning Center also located on the property, the two can now combine to take care of babies through high school seniors. “We are trying to use the whole community so children can get a well-rounded education,” said Keith’s step-mother and day care director Sheryl Yancey. “Our focus is on what they need to enter college or a career,” said Keith Yancey. “The Please see ACADEMY | 2A

to open a bed and breakfast business in the former Jackson home, an historic house currently getting a facelift on Linden Street in Corinth. Brin developed cancer, the house fell vacant and the dream was lost. David purchased 60 acres from Brin’s father in a place so rural, it’s hard to describe. It’s in the southwest corner of Hardin County four miles from McNairy County and about 2.5 miles north of where Alcorn and Tishomingo counties connect in Mississippi. It has a Michie address and “going to town” means Counce. While on vacation in Mexico, he met Rachel, a woman he would eventually marry after a nine-month long distance courtship. Now 47, Rachel lost her spouse of 18 years, Bruce Lund, after his battle with brain cancer. Rachel lived in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where she was a business executive and college professor. Reared as a missionary child in foreign countries, she was involved in politics, served as a commissioner and once made a run for state senator. A singer and race car fan, Rachel has a passion for horses. For the past 13 years Rachel has been involved with Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) and Equine Alternative Learning (EAL), fancy terms which simply means horses are used to help people deal with their issues.

and equine-assisted therapy background and David had the land. Bingo. Hillside New Beginnings was born.

The Dream

“I became a horse man,” said David, sitting with his wife in the office next to the stables. Tall and lanky, David is covered in sawdust from the many chores necessary in caring for a dozen horses. This day he was installing an air conditioning unit in the office wall. “I had property, but no horses,” he said. Rachel, a striking and confident woman, acknowledged her husband’s progress. “He’s really good with horses now and the training,” she said. “We’ve invested all of our life savings into this,” noted Rachel. “All of our retirement. We believe in what we are doing. There is a need.” The couple have been married a little over two years and Hillside New Beginnings has been in operation for nine months. “We are just getting started,” said David, as a dozen people have been helped so far. The Bailey team includes Rachel as executive director, while David makes sure everything is in working order. “I’m the fix-it guy,” admitted David. A board of directors is required and Rachel said she is proud of those who have agreed to serve. Other than the Baileys, the group includes a veterinarian, counselor, clergy, attorney and doctor. “They are creative people and great to work with,” she said. Rachel brings horse therapy curriculum experience to the corral, so the match comes with a passion for a form of therapy which worldwide has a success rate of 66 percent. They live on 60 total acres which includes a house and D&R Hillside Ranch across Damon Road.

Why horses?

Horses have their very own language, according

to Rachel. They communicate with body movement, expressions and the distance they choose, maintain or increase between them and an object or person of interest. This language is integral to understanding their behavior and how to be with them, she explained. The ability to recognize fear, frustration, willingness and happiness is important, said the therapy expert. “The horse is a tool to get the client to talk,” said David. “The horse in its own magnificent way is the teacher.” Horses are excellent at reading and mirroring body language and emotions and will respond to it honestly, said Rachel. “This makes them powerful messengers.” By using horse related exercises, clients learn to solve their own problems, overcome fear, develop confidence and discover truths, noted Rachel. “It helped me with my own recovery when I lost my husband,” said Rachel. “It works.” “It helps with healing in a different way,” she said. Most of the therapy herd were rescue animals donated to the hope effort. “Most all of the horses have been donated to us,” she said, as she introduced Coco, a 35-year-old gelding and the senior helper. Daisy, a 5-year-old mare, is the youngest of the group.

marriage, anger management and abuse. “Equine therapy assists with emotional growth and teaching of issues related to substance abuse, problems with communication, behavior and relationships, “ explained Rachel, “along with teaching life skills such as behavior modification, creative thinking and problem solving.” “We want mental health people to use our office,” stressed Rachel. Added David, “It’s not a bad office -- outside and working with horses.” “We partner with many other agencies and organizations,” added Rachel. “If a person has been in an office setting for a year and it’s not working, it may be time to try something different.” Hillside also works with businesses and their employees to build leadership skills, team building and communication skills, she said.

Where they are

“Those dealing with difficult situations of life,” Rachel responded to the question about clients. Youth, families, groups, individuals, business professionals and military personnel are some she mentioned. “We have such a huge need in so many areas,” she said. “Especially youth dealing with drug problems.” She has also seen a need for veterans who are having a hard time adjusting to civilian life after active duty. Situations mentioned included bully prevention, at-risk youth, issues in the

The Baileys began with a field of dreams. With much work and sweat, facilities built by their hands include a corral, the 12-stall barn, tack room, office, restroom and feed room. They want to build a covered arena so sessions can continue despite rainy days. “We are dependent on the weather,” said Rachel. They want to continue to network and spread the word of what Hillside can do to make a difference. Two recent clients were a couple with communication and anger issues. All the details are a private matter, but the couple and their horse worked through all the issues. “It’s amazing what happened,” said Rachel. It was another new beginning with hope through horses.

At 410 Cemetery Street, which borders the national cemetery, neighbors have been mowing the front yard of a vacant property, but the city wants the back yard cleaned up as well, said Code Enforcement Officer Kim Ratliff. The board gave a 30day continuance for a Wick Street property — block 87, Mitchell

and Mask subdivision — which is in the final stages of cleanup by the owner. The board adjudicated the cost for cleanup commissioned by the city plus a $500 penalty for 216 Penn Street, corner of Penn and Ross, 608 Wenasoga Road, 1521 Jackson, southeast corner of Crater and White, southeast corner of Ross and Pierce, 1223 Wick and 906 Scott Street. The penalty is waived if the cost is paid within 60 days. ■ The board approved a beer license for Mi Ranchito, a new Mexican restaurant on U.S. Highway 72. ■ Aldermen approved taking bids for the sale of three small lots in Spence subdivision.

Sporting events will take place from 3-5 p.m. “Sports are important and we plan on having a very active program, but it’s not the only thing that matters,” said Yancey of having the time at the end of the school day. Every student must fill out an application and pass an interview. GCA will not accept students suspended from public school.

“We are not a reform school,” added Yancey. Students will also be tested to determine what level in which they begin. A dress code is also required. The grading system will consist of 100-94 (A), 9388 (B) and 87-80 being a C. Each Wednesday a devotional will be held with the help of area pastors and churches. As of Friday, 12 students were already registered. The number is expected to rise, according to the director with school still not on the minds of many parents. “I will be satisfied with whatever number we have register,” he said. “We don’t have all the answers, but we know what not to do.”

Today in history Today is Sunday, July 14, the 195th day of 2013. There are 170 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On July 14, 1913, Gerald Rudolph Ford Jr., the 38th president of the United States, was born Leslie Lynch King Jr. in Omaha, Neb.

On this date: In 1789, during the French Revolution, citizens of Paris stormed the Bastille prison and released the seven prisoners inside. In 1853, Commodore Matthew Perry relayed to Japanese officials a letter from President Millard Fillmore requesting trade relations. (Fillmore’s term of office had already expired by the time the letter was delivered.) In 1881, outlaw William H. Bonney Jr., alias “Billy the Kid,” was shot and killed by Sheriff Pat Garrett in Fort Sumner in presentday New Mexico. In 1911, Harry N. Atwood became the first pilot to land an airplane (a Wright Model B biplane) on the grounds of the White House after flying in from Boston; he was greeted by President William Howard Taft. In 1921, Italianborn anarchists Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti were convicted in Dedham, Mass., of murdering a shoe company paymaster and his guard. (Sacco and Vanzetti were executed six years later.) In 1933, all German political parties, except the Nazi Party, were outlawed. Cartoon character Popeye the Sailor made his movie debut in the Fleischer Studios animated short, “Popeye the Sailor.” In 1943, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed a measure providing funds for a national monument honoring scientist George Washington Carver; the monument was built at Carver’s birthplace near Diamond, Mo. In 1960, British researcher Jane Goodall arrived at the Gombe Stream Reserve in the Tanganyika Territory (in present-day Tanzania) to begin her famous study of chimpanzees in the wild. In 1966, eight student nurses were murdered by Richard Speck in a Chicago dormitory. In 1976, Jimmy Carter won the Democratic presidential nomination at the party’s convention in New York. In 1980, the Republican national convention opened in Detroit, where nominee-apparent Ronald Reagan told a welcoming rally he and his supporters were determined to “make America great again.” In 1999, race-based school busing in Boston came to an end after 25 years.

Ten years ago: Iraq’s new governing council, in its first full day on the job, voted to send a delegation to the U.N. Security Council and assert its right to represent Baghdad on the world stage.

In court filings before Pillault pleaded guilty, Pillault’s lawyer had wanted to prohibit prosecutors from using evidence about his interest in the Columbine shooting, serial killers and research on making bombs. Prosecutors responded at the time by arguing Pillault’s lawyer was trying to exclude “the very evidence that would show that he in fact did fully intend to carry out the threat and was making preparations to do so.” The judge wrote he had decided to seal the documents “based primarily upon concerns that potential jurors might be prejudiced by media coverage of the case.” “That concern is no longer relevant, inasmuch as defendant has entered a guilty plea,” Mills wrote in Monday’s order.

Unsealed documents offer details of school threat Associated Press

JACKSON — The man who pleaded guilty to making online threats to attack a north Mississippi high school had researched how to make bombs, the 1999 Columbine High School shooting and serial killers, according to recently unsealed court records. Joshua Brandon Pillault, 20, pleaded guilty on June 20 to making threats against Oxford High School in a chat room for an online medieval fantasy and role-playing strategy game called “Runescape.” Another player reported the threats in October 2012. A transcript of the online conversation was among the documents unsealed this week by U.S. District Judge Michael P. Mills. “I can’t wait to blow brains out of skulls,” Pillault said, according to the chat log, using the account name “Paul Gilbert” and the login name “Merlan 91.” The chat logs said the attack would be carried out with guns, molotov cock-

The 1999 shootings at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colo., were carried out by two students and left 13 people dead. Pillault also tried to download a game named Super Columbine Massacre RPG, a role playing game that allows players to recreate the Columbine attack. Pillault’s lawyer, Roy Percy, said in court records Pillault made the comments, but described them as “idle or careless talk, exaggeration or something said in a joking manner.” Percy had no comment on the case when contacted

Thursday. The judge recently ordered an evaluation to determine if Pillault needs mental health care and what options are available. The report is to be submitted to the court before sentencing, which has not yet been scheduled. An FBI interview with Pillault, also unsealed this week, said Pillault dropped out of Oxford High School in October 2011 because of a drinking problem and he had also told an ex-girlfriend he wanted to attack the school. Pillault “has always been interested in serial killers like John Wayne Gacy and Jeffrey Dahmer,” according to the FBI interview on Oct. 10. Pillault told the FBI agent he didn’t remember

PONTOTOC — The president of a north Mississippi meat processor said a video released by an animal rights group shows two instances in which pigs were not stunned properly before slaughter. Southern Quality Meats president Don Haynie said Friday in a news release that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals did not give his company a copy of the video it released to news organizations this week. After getting the video from a third party, Haynie said it was shot on the floor of the Pontotoc plant. He said it shows workers using stunning techniques. He said the video showed two incidents where a pig was not knocked unconscious by the first stun. “These two instances show a company employee using improper stunning techniques that are contrary to company policy and procedures. We have again retrained our employees on correct procedures. “In addition the company has already installed an animal restraining system to help facilitate proper stunning techniques,” Haynie said in the news release. Haynie said the company was working federal and state agencies that are looking into the video. Haynie said the company received a complaint in May from officials of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. He said the complaint was investigation but the company found no evidence of problems. PETA’s release of the video prompted an U.S. Department of Agriculture inspection of the slaughterhouse. The USDA has issued no statement on the results of that inspection. PETA wants the USDA to take stringent action against the company. It also is asking the Mississippi State Department of Education to suspend its contracts with Southern Quality Meats. State Department of Education spokeswoman Patrice Guilfoyle said Thursday the state has a contract with Southern Quality Meats for pork for its school nutrition programs but did not have amounts immediately available.

NHS lessons for Obamacare FT. WILLIAM, Scotland — The power of television to shrink the world has always amazed me. Eating lunch on the road to Ft. William, a man at the next table recognizes me and introduces himself. Keith Farrington says he spent 15 years working as an assistant director of finance for the South East Thames Regional Health Authority, part of the National Health Service. He has strong warnings for the U.S. about Obamacare. “The main problem is that the NHS is seen as free on Cal delivery to everybody,” FarThomas rington said. “It is not free.

This number is seen as a passport to full NHS care, including operations and aftercare because the clinicians say it is not their job to sort out who is eligible and who is not. In this way, billions of pounds are spent on noneligible folk. ... Word has got round in Nigeria, Ghana, India and Pakistan that it is possible to receive treatment on the UK taxpayer without restraint and cheaper than paying in their own countries.” Obama claims that won’t happen here. “The reforms I am proposing,” he said in 2009, “would not apply to those who are here illegally.” Partly true. With Obamacare, noncitizens would not be covered and would not be subject to the individual mandate, but they could still walk into any ER and get treated on the taxpayer’s dime. With such open-ended spending in the UK, the predictable has occurred. The NHS faces a 30 billion pound deficit by 2020 and, according to Tim Kelsey, director for patients and information at NHS England, is set to “run out of cash.” Each time I visit the UK I read about NHS horror stories. The Scottish Daily Mail reported on three brutal killings that might have been prevented were it not for a “catalogue of failings by a (NHS-operated) mental health trust.” One of the men had been refused treatment for failing to register with a local doctor. An investigation by the UK Daily Telegraph found that some patients are forced to wait up to eight hours inside ambulances because there are not enough beds inside hospitals. Senior NHS doctors and managers say up to 20 hospitals across the country may close to avoid financial ruin. If you are sick on a weekend, fewer doctors are available. The Telegraph quotes senior officials as saying 4,000 lives a year are lost because of poor weekend care. These officials call the current trend in the NHS “unsustainable.” One health minister referred to scandals and cover-ups in patient deaths at two hospitals as part of a “rotten culture” in the NHS. In March, the Daily Mail reported “Nearly 1,200 people have starved to death in NHS hospitals” because “nurses are too busy to feed patients.” At Stafford Hospital, police are investigating the deaths of 300 patients over a four-year period. They suspect neglect, even criminality, may have contributed to their deaths. Why isn’t this a lesson for the U.S.? Why do people believe government is more competent than the private sector, despite numerous examples to the contrary? The Obama administration is pressing ahead with implementing America’s version of the NHS, no doubt expecting different results. Though postponing the employer mandate until 2015, beginning Oct. 1, the administration plans to start sending money to states that have already set up health care exchanges. As Washington Examiner columnist Byron York has noted, the sooner people become dependent on this latest government program the more difficult it will be to overturn the law. Keith Farrington has a “you’ll be sorry” attitude toward America concerning its version of an NHS. He is shocked that we would scuttle one of the best health systems in the world -even with its imperfections, which can be fixed -- for one in which government controls a key part, which he predicts will produce results similar to the UK. He speaks from experience. Is anyone in America listening? (Readers may e-mail Daily Corinthian columnnist Cal Thomas at

Prayer for today When our lives seem confused, dear God, help us to see your hand at work, bringing order out of chaos. Amen.

A verse to share And my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness and of thy praise all the day long. — Psalms 35:28

Smith family’s gift to state is closing Given our relatively small population, Mississippi is fortunate to have a number of really great book stores — established places like Oxford’s Square Books, Lemuria in Jackson, and Reed’s Gum Tree in Tupelo and emerging new stores like Turnrow Book Company in Greenwood. But as I learned while selling and signing my own book, those great stores don’t become great without the people who own and operate them — the bookmen. People like Richard Howorth, John Evans, the Reed clan, and many others. There are also some wonderful book women in the business as well. Yet if a Mississippian has a love of old and rare books — and a particular affinity for Mississippi literature, history and culture — they have had no better friends than the Smith family at Jackson’s venerable Choctaw Books at 926 North Street in Jackson. The store specializes in the history of Mississippi, the South, and the Civil War, along with Mississippi literature. Sadly, Choctaw Books will close its doors on Sept. 30. The owner said Webbased rare book sites, general sales sites like EBay and Craigslist, the entry of Ama-

zon into the used book business, and technological changes like print-on-deSid Salter mand books caused foot Columnist traffic to steadily decrease over the last six years. What began in Ridgeland’s Old Town Square on Feb. 1, 1982, as the private library of former Mississippi U.S. Rep. Frank Ellis Smith grew over three decades to a book store filled with over 110,000 mostly hardback volumes with an additional selection of maps, historical papers, documents and “ephemera” (everyday documents intended for one-time or short-term use). The Smiths would relocate the store to Manship Street in Jackson in 1984 and finally to the present location at 926 North Street in Jackson Frank Smith was a fascinating man — a World War II U.S. Army field artillery officer, former newspaper editor, former state legislator, former aide to U.S. Sen. John C. Stennis, and former five-term Mississippi congressman — whose moderate views on race

eventually cost him his seat in Congress. He would later be appointed by President John F. Kennedy as a director of the Tennessee Valley Authority. With his son and partner, Fred, the Smiths built a used and rare book store that attracted a staggeringly wide range of people interested in literature, government and politics. Prowling the crowded, dusty rows of books, one might encounter a current congressman, a Jackson television anchor, doctors, lawyers, professors, journalists, ministers, political operatives, and historians. Choctaw Books helped build a lot of quality home libraries and was a refuge for writers and researchers who could not locate rare or out-of-print books in libraries. If you needed a book, Fred could usually get it. It never felt like shopping — it felting like visiting. Fred Smith became the “go-to” guy in the state for appraisals of rare books, maps, documents, and “ephemera” — program, matchbooks, menus, political signage, buttons, you name it. Fred’s work was and is the basis of insurance policy values and income tax returns. Along the way, Fred met a lot of Mississippi literary royalty in the per-

sons of writers like Eudora Welty and Willie Morris. “I’m closing the store, but I’ll still be around the book world,” said Fred. “I’m proud to be a bookman. I’ll sell books on the Internet. I just won’t enjoy it as much. I’ll still do appraisals and I’ll still find rare Mississippi materials for special collections.” After 31 years of being open six days a week, Smith admits to looking forward to time with his family. But in many ways, Fred Smith cherishes these final weeks in the life of Choctaw Books. “I’m looking forward to seeing folks who I think have a connection to the place make their last visits,” said Smith. “It will be a little like going to your own funeral, I suppose.” For the eclectic mix of Choctaw Books customers and friends, most will be happy for Fred but sad about the closing of a Mississippi institution — and they will visit one more time to close their eyes and feel the Mississippi history and talent that surrounds them in the comfortable oasis that Frank and Fred Smith created.

GOP has a chance to recapture Senate What’s the outlook for the 2014 Senate elections? The Republicans once again have a chance to overturn the Democrats’ majority, as they did in 2010 and 2012. Much attention has been focused on whether Republicans this time will nominate candidates capable of winning key races, as they failed to do in those two elections. But another interesting question is how Democrats will try to hold onto seats in Republican-leaning states even as Barack Obama maintains his strong tilt to the political left. The lineup is certainly favorable to Republicans. Assuming the New Jersey seat now held by Republican appointee Jeff Chiesa goes Democratic in the October special election, only 14 Republican seats will be up in 2014, as against 21 Democratic seats. Only one of those Republican seats is in a state carried by Barack Obama, Maine (56 percent Obama), and three-term incumbent Susan Collins looks unbeatable. In contrast, Democrats have to defend seats in sev-

en states carried by Mitt Romney and in four states that were target states in the 2012 Micahel presidential Barone election. RepubliColumnist cans seem sure to win open seats in South Dakota and West Virginia. Well-known Democrats are avoiding both races, and they look like certain Republican pickups. The scene is a bit different in Montana, where Senate Finance Chairman Max Baucus is retiring after 36 years. The strongest possible Democrat is folksy former Gov. Brian Schweitzer, who takes populist stands on economics and has backed the Keystone pipeline, which Barack Obama has so far refused to approve. Two seats in the Deep South held by Democrats with locally famous names are in peril, and the two incumbents seem to have different strategies. In Louisiana, Mary

Landrieu, daughter and sister of New Orleans mayors, seems to be running as a proud Obama Democrat. Her state has the second largest black percentage in the union, and evidently she’s hoping for high black turnout and just enough white votes to give her a fourth narrow majority. In Arkansas, Mark Pryor, son of David Pryor, the representative, governor and senator whose election wins date back to 1966, seems to be running as a moderate in tune with local values. He was re-elected unopposed in 2008, but Republicans have since captured all the state’s U.S. House seats and majorities in the state legislature. And Arkansas has a much lower black percentage than Louisiana. Both Landrieu and Pryor have run under 50 percent in recent polls against Reps. John Fleming and Tom Cotton, with Pryor a statistically insignificant 1 percent ahead of the Republican. If Democrats lose all seven of these seats in Romney states, and if Republicans avoid nominating candidates who manage to lose

seats that currently seem unloseable, Republicans will have at least a 52-48 Senate majority. And they have at least an outside chance of winning seats in 2012 target states Colorado, Iowa and New Hampshire, plus Michigan. Well, you might ask, isn’t it unusual for parties to sweep all the close races? Actually, sometimes they do. Republicans did in 1980 and Democrats did in 1986 -- and those were the same seats. Republicans won the bulk of close races in 2002, and Democrats won the bulk of close races in 2008 -- the same seats again and the ones up next year. A sweep is by no means certain this time. But if the Obamacare rollout is a “train wreck,” as Baucus feared, the odds get better.

Napolitano exit bares DHS leadership gaps WASHINGTON — The leadership vacancy created by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano’s resignation is the latest and greatest blow to a department where one-third of the heads of key agencies and divisions have been filled with acting officials or remained vacant for months. Napolitano’s departure, slated for September, will create the 15th hole in the department’s 45 leadership positions. Napolitano’s chief of staff and the director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement are leaving this month. The deputy secretary, general counsel, heads of Customs and Border Protection, privacy, legislative affairs, intelligence and analysis and more are filled with acting officials. Other key positions, like the executive secretariat, inspector general and deputy undersecretary for cybersecurity remain vacant. The pattern of putting acting officials in leadership positions at the Homeland Security Department— sometimes replacing acting officials with other acting officials — has been going on for months. This swath of vacancies raises questions about how a department depleted of permanent leadership could implement changes, particularly as Congress considers overhauling the nation’s immigration system. “Her departure is a substantial addition to the growing list of unfilled key leadership positions within the department,” Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, who chairs the House Homeland Security Committee, said of Napolitano’s resignation.

5-figure water bills blamed on software GIRARD, Ohio — A spate of five-figure water bills in an Ohio city is being blamed on new software, but a pastor jokes his church’s $93,000 bill was from using too much holy water.

The July bill sent to St. Rose Catholic Church in Girard near Youngstown was one of many erroneous statements sent to the city’s water customers. The (Youngstown) Vindicator reports that the Tri-Changes hair salon got a $12,000 bill. Residents, business owners and clergy recently descended on the city’s water department seeking an explanation. Girard public services director Jerry Lambert says the city is replacing manual-read meters with automatic readers. He says the errors are a result of software problems during the changeover.

ID emerges of third plane crash victim SAN FRANCISCO — The name of a girl who died of injuries suffered in the crash-landing of an Asiana Airlines flight in San Francisco has emerged early Saturday. Chinese state media identified her as Liu Yipeng. China News says she went to school with the other two victims killed in last week’s accident, a pair of 16-yearold girls. Liu Yipeng’s identification comes a day after her death was announced amid the official confirmation that one of the other girls who died in the disaster had been covered on the runway in flame-retardant foam and hit by a fire truck speeding to the crash site, a disclosure that raised the tragic possibility she could have survived the crash only to die in its chaotic aftermath. Liu Yipeng, whose name was first reported in the U.S. by KGO-TV, died Friday morning at San Francisco General Hospital where she had been in critical condition

since the July 6 crash. Friends and strangers have left condolences on Chinese social media sites in her memory. Jianshang Education Bureau director Mao Zhuoxing confirmed Liu Yipeng’s identity to China News. Her age was not disclosed. All three girls killed were from China.

Cash-starved city to sell West artifacts HARRISBURG, Pa. — A cavernous brick building on the outskirts of the city holds a failed dream, a warehouse stacked high with the remnants of a multimillion-dollar spending spree by a former Harrisburg mayor who used city money to purchase artifacts for an Old West museum that died in its infancy. City officials hope that after a weeklong auction that starts Monday, the collection will be gone — the stuffed buffalo and mountain lion, the more than 500 firearms, the racks of period clothing, the wooden dugout canoes and the Savage Ale bar sign with a bullet hole tenuously attributed to frontierswoman Calamity Jane. Among the items that have attracted interest are a Colt Firearms Co. advertising board with an endorsement by the Texas Rangers and a circa-1890 coin-operated slot machine called The Owl. The collection also includes a sizable number of Spanish colonial artifacts, as well as documents linked to Presidents George Washington and John F. Kennedy and historical figures Billy the Kid and John Hancock. There are dozens of saddles, framed collections of marshal and deputy badges, and countless antlers.

Man to plead guilty in pipe bomb case GULFPORT — Federal court records say one of two men arrested after authorities found a bomb in a car at a state prison in Leakesville has filed notice of his intention to plead guilty. Federal court papers show John Harberson, of Carriere, filed the notice Thursday in U.S. District Court in Gulfport. Harberson and Scott Jenkins Waits, of McHenry, were arrested after officers at the South Mississippi Correctional Institution found a pipe bomb in a vehicle June 1. Harberson had driven Robin Denell Baker, of Gulfport, to visit an inmate, authorities say. Harberson told agents he and Waits had built the pipe bombs from aluminum flashlight bodies, shotgun shells, black powder and candle wax. He said they had made a previous bomb and blown it up in a gravel pit near Waits’ home. Harberson said he forgot the new bomb was in the car when he and Baker drove to the prison for the visit. Officials say they don’t believe the bomb was intended for the prison. Harberson’s change of plea hearing is July 31. Waits has pleaded not guilty.

Man to plead guilty to enticement OXFORD — A Mississippi man is expected to plead guilty Thursday on a charge related to using a computer and cellphone in attempting to entice a minor for sex. James Rudy Leach is scheduled for a change of plea hearing in U.S. District Court in Oxford. Court records say he tried to entice a 15-year-old for sex in January. Authorities say the crime happened in Nettleton. He was indicted in January on one count of coercion or enticement of a minor.

Judge resets child porn sentencing OXFORD — A federal judge has rescheduled the sentencing of a man who pleaded guilty to possessing child pornography in Columbus. Noel Everett Sumrall was indicted on the charge in August 2012. He pleaded guilty earlier

this year. His lawyer asked for a delay in the sentencing, which had been scheduled for Monday. Sentencing is now set for July 29. His lawyer wanted more time for an expert to consider Sumrall’s “propensities for child sexual abuse and possible diagnosis of his proclivities.” The information was to be provided to the court and probation services. Sumrall is charged in U.S. District Court in Oxford.

Plea hearing set in immigrant case JACKSON — A change of plea hearing has been scheduled for July 25 for a naturalized U.S. citizen charged in Mississippi with transporting two Chinese immigrants who were in the United States illegally. A criminal complaint in U.S. District Court in Jackson said the two immigrants went from China to Hong Kong to Honduras. The complaint says they traveled through Mexico and crossed the border near Laredo, Texas. Court records say Ming Che Chen picked them up in Texas and was taking them to New York when a deputy stopped him on Interstate 20 in Rankin County. Ming was arrested after all three were questioned. He previously pleaded not guilty. The change of plea hearing is scheduled to take place in U.S. District Court in Jackson. A previously scheduled plea change hearing in April was postponed.

The Daily Leader reports 35-year-old Jerry Hux was arrested on charges of arson after the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Department investigated a fire at his home on Hog Chain Road. The fire was reported shortly before 10 p.m. on July 4. Sheriff Steve Rushing said there had been a domestic disturbance at the trailer earlier in the day. Rushing says investigators believe Hux set the trailer on fire after others left. It was not immediately clear whether Hux has an attorney.

ACCO Brands cranks out back-to-school products BY BRANT SAPPINGTON bsappington@

Anyone who has used an office or school supply recently has probably touched a piece of one of Booneville’s most thriving industries. ACCO Brands Booneville facility is on the move with expansions of existing lines and the addition of new functions to its 885,500-square-foot campus just off of North Second Street. The ACCO family of products manufactured or distributed through Booneville includes such recognized names as Quartet, Wilson-Jones, Kensington, Day-Timer and GBC and the facility is now the national center for the manufacturing of store displays for Mead products since the merger of ACCO and Mead in 2012. Booneville produces dry erase boards, ring binders and custom specialty binders. The company has been manufacturing products in Booneville since 1969 and joined the ACCO brands family in 2005. Today the facility employees approximately 530 full-time along with a current total of 175 temporary or seasonal workers whose numbers fluctuate due to seasonal demands. General Manager for Indirect Logistics Chuck Milner said the company continues to be committed to growth in Booneville because of the strong

support it receives from the Prentiss County Development Association and local government leaders and the dependability, availability and work ethic of the area’s workforce. “Booneville itself is held in high regard from a corporate standpoint,” said Milner. PCDA Executive Director Leon Hays said the county is thankful to have such a strong corporate citizen. “It really means a lot to see you flourish here,” he said. After struggling through the economic downturn, activity is again on the upswing at the Booneville plant with more products being shifted to the local facility that had previously been manufactured in China and the growth of the customer service and display production areas. Bob Alley, general manager for indirect manufacturing, said the focus on the manufacturing side has been on increasing efficiency and making the plant competitive with production facilities anywhere in the world. “We can make products equal to anyone,” he said. Those efforts have helped bring additional product lines to Booneville resulting in the addition of jobs and the retention of other jobs. The display production work creates store-ready displays shipped to ma-

jor retailers, such as WalMart, throughout the country. Tracie Arnold, operations manager for distribution, explained when the company merged with Mead the displays were being produced by an outside company. The Booneville facility was able to show it could produce the same products in-house more efficiently which led ACCO to bring the work here. The result has been a doubling of the display output of the plant in the last year. Much of the work is done by temporary workers who are hired to meet seasonal upswings in demand, such as the current back to school season. Those workers are supplemented with experienced full-time employees who help train and support them. Arnold said in addition to back-to-school, the addition of the Mead brands creates opportunities for year round display production for products such as planners and calendars in the fall and other items during other seasons. Customer service has also seen big growth in Booneville. Customer Service Manager Angie Olive explained the local facility has become a key center for customer service operations in the company, combining services that were previously housed in several locations. Customer service workers in Booneville provide

said they try to provide unique benefits to their team including an on-site workout center, a snack and food center with automated payment options and a once-a-week visit by a health clinic employees can use for checkups or other treatments without having to leave work. “We want this to be a preferred employer for all the right reasons,” said Milner. Senior Human Resources Manager Christina Lawless said they also work hard to reach out to the community and be a partner. They’ve taken part in Relay for Life, sponsored local sports teams coached by their employees and are continuing to work to expand their outreach efforts. They also donate thousands of dollars worth of products to non-profits including area schools each year. Milner said the corporate leadership has seen the hard work and success of the Booneville plant and it’s always in consideration when new opportunities arise. They expect to continue to see new additions and changes in the future. “Booneville is the right place to be,” he said. Lawless noted the company is currently hiring for numerous positions. Job listings and online applications can be found at or by visiting the local WIN Job Center.

They also recently began taking consumer support calls to assist customers with any questions they may have. The expansion of customer service at the plant has already added 19 new jobs with more expected soon. Booneville also serves as one three regional distribution centers for ACCO products across the country and handles

60 percent of the company’s distribution volume. They operate a fleet of 50 trucks out of the local center which drive over 50 million miles per year. “The fleet has been a tremendous asset for us,” said Milner. The distribution center is also on the move working to position itself to take advantage of changes in distribution models as more purchases are made online and the demand grows for smaller, more directed shipment services. ACCO’s leaders believe it’s good business to care for employees. Milner

Shiloh park presents program on CCC Camp Young SHILOH — Shiloh National Military Park will present a special evening program Monday to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) camp at Shiloh. The program will include a showing of the film, The 1930s: The Civilian Conservation Corps, and a power point presentation on the contributions made by the CCC camp at Shiloh Battlefield. Shiloh’s CCC camp, known as Camp Young, had its initial enrollment at Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia on June 27, 1933. Sixty African American World War I veterans made up the initial membership. On July 15, 1933, these men were transferred to Shiloh National Military Park, and by August had built a permanent camp at the park. The men in the

CCC camp worked on varied construction projects at Shiloh such as; erosion control, fire protection, roadway and bridge construction, and masonry. “We hope this program will give visitors a sense of what the Civilian Conservation Corps was, and how the men in Camp Young lived, worked, educated and entertained themselves while stationed at Shiloh during the Depression,” said ranger Heather Smedley. The program begins at 6:30 pm in the Shiloh Visitor Center auditorium and will last approximately 90 minutes. For more information on this program and other upcoming events at Shiloh go to or, or call the Visitor Center at 731-6895696.

19-pound cabbages Johnny Pittman (left) and Daniel Lee show off five huge cabbages with an average weight of 17 pounds grown on Jerry Brawner’s farm in the Wenasoga community. The bigger cabbages weigh 19 pounds and the “smaller� ones are 16 pounds. According to Brawner, it’s been a good year for cabbage due to the cool and wet spring. The youth call themselves the “Maroon Team� and are neighbors of Brawner. Pittman will be a freshman at Kossuth High School and Lee will be a freshman at Biggersville High School.

Stocks inch higher, setting new records It was another record day on Wall Street — barely. After spending most of Friday flat or down, stocks rallied at the last minute and closed slightly higher, just enough to post new record highs for the Dow Jones industrial average and the Standard & Poor’s 500 index. The gains were tiny. And the new record doesn’t mean much for investors, who hardly have any more money now than they did a day earlier. But it is a sign that investors believe the market’s rally this year may not be over yet. The S&P 500 has closed higher seven days in a row. The last time it did that was in March. Investors had to look past a pessimistic outlook from UPS, which said it was seeing a slowdown in U.S. industry. And in the afternoon, Boeing shares tanked after one of its 787s caught on fire in London, reviving fears of the troubles that plane had with smoldering batteries earlier this year. Other economic news was mixed. Profits at big banks Wells Fargo and JP Morgan came in better than expected, and that helped financial stocks. But a University of Michigan measure of consumer sentiment came in lower than expected for this month. Investors will get a lot more information next week, when key reports on inflation and retail sales are due. That’s also when the pace of company earnings reports picks up sharply. Results are due from the remaining big banks as well as General Electric, Intel, Microsoft and other industry bellwethers. “This is the jump ball, this is the Lebron James of the market,� said David Darst, chief investment strategist for Morgan Stanley Individual Investor Group, referring to the second-quarter earnings rush. “It’s going to determine where the market goes.� The Dow closed up 3.38 points, just 0.02 percent, at 15,464.30. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 5.17 points, or 0.3 percent, to 1,680.19. Both indexes also closed at alltime highs on Thursday. The Nasdaq composite edged up 21.78 points, or 0.6 percent, to 3,600.08. It’s still well short of its

record high of 5,048, set in March 2000. The Russell 2000, which is made up of smaller companies, rose 3.35 points, or 0.3 percent, to close at 1,036.52. Stocks spent most of Friday down, but not down much. Analysts believe investors are waiting for several major earnings and economic reports next week before deciding whether the rally has further to run.

Coming Up In The Daily Corinthian Watch for a story on the business development of Wick Street in our next Crossroads Magazine — Lifestyles Edition coming out Aug. 3 in the Daily Corinthian.

Married friends can’t seem to leave spouses at home DEAR ABBY: I am a 58-yearold woman who would like your take on a problem I have with several married female friends and my married sister. During the many years I have been close to these couples, the women seem unable to have one-on-one conversations, outings or a lunch date with me without including their husbands. Several times after making a lunch date, one friend, unbeknownst to me, has called her husband and invited him as well. Another friend’s husband never seems to allow her to talk to me alone, and will even be on speaker or another phone listening — again, unbeknownst to me until he suddenly says something. My sister will not read her emails from me, but instead has her husband read them aloud to her while she’s doing something else and then dictates a few words to reply to me with. Consequently, I stopped emailing her and told her why. There is nothing I would say to these ladies that I wouldn’t want their husbands to hear, but can you tell me why certain women feel a need to include their spouses in their female relationships in this manner? At the very least, I feel it is extremely rude. — FRUSTRATED WITH MY BFFs DEAR FRUSTRATED: Your friends may assume that you

like their husbands’ company as much as they do. They may feel that because they tell their Abigail spouses “evrything,” Van Buren etheir menfolk might as well Dear Abby hear what you have to say directly from you. Or their husbands may be retired or semi-retired and have no social lives of their own. Of course, the way to get a direct answer to your question would be to ask them why they do this, and because you feel it is rude, you should tell them. As to your sister, she may be too busy with household chores to read your emails and reply to them, which is why she has her husband read them to her, or you may have sent more than she can handle. Not sending her any more emails is not the solution; telling her how you feel might be. DEAR ABBY: Last year a neighbor confided to me that she had been sexually assaulted. In an effort to both show and invite compassion, I told her I empathized with her because I had been assaulted on multiple occasions as a child and teen decades ago. I have now learned that this

woman has told other neighbors that I “had sex with a lot of men,” but she failed to put it in the context that I was a child victim of multiple predators. How should I respond to this? Should I ignore the situation or explain the truth to the neighbors? I don’t know whether or not to confront the woman who divulged the information. I am shocked that she’d do such a thing. I have no shame or guilt issues over what happened to me because I worked through that long ago. But I’m at a loss about what, if anything, I should do. I have already learned the painful lesson that she wasn’t worthy of my trust and has serious issues of her own. What are your thoughts on this matter? — RE-VICTIMIZED DEAR RE-VICTIMIZED: You have every right to be angry with the blabbermouth. Because the word is out, set the record straight with the neighbors who were kind enough to tell you your confidence wasn’t respected. And in the future, I wouldn’t blame you if you avoided the woman who started the rumors whenever possible, and let her know why. (Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.)

Horoscopes ARIES (March 21-April 19). Nothing is all good or all evil. Avoid people who talk in extremes or try to sway you far to one side -- they will make life too complicated. Stick with the mild, reasonable types now. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If time is on your side, consider yourself lucky. It’s one of the better forces to have working for you. You’ll be made aware of how rapidly life is changing for someone you know. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Stick up for your friends, especially when their nearest and dearest share less than complimentary information. Familial love can be complicated. Take everyone’s opinion with a grain of salt, even your own. CANCER (June 22-July 22). The problem you deal with day in and day out is not only your problem; it’s shared by thousands of others. All you have to do is reach out a bit, and you’ll find the support you need.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’re all for letting people get to know the real you, as long as the real you is more or less appropriate for the situation. Today’s success rides on your ability to choose the most effective version of who you really are. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may not be a daredevil exactly, but you’re a chance taker in areas of life that do not involve the possibility of bodily harm. You’ll astound with the impulsive and bold move you make today. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You are like Hercules battling the lion today. It seems like an unfair match, but you’ll dominate and win in the end. If your victory doesn’t happen quickly, take heart: It took Hercules 30 days. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When chasing old dreams feels tired, it’s time to invigorate your daily life by dreaming anew. If you’re going to chase something, make sure it’s fresh excitement.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). “What could possibly go wrong?” is a dangerous question. The answers that spring to mind probably won’t occur. The answers that don’t spring to mind will show up in real time to keep things interesting. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Amazing things are accomplished in the name of fun. If you’re not having fun, you’ll accomplish approximately half as much. A change of schedule will bring a change of heart. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The same people who are extremely shy are usually highly sensitive and thoughtful -- and worth taking the time to get to know. Break the ice with that person who can’t break it alone. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Don’t be afraid to leverage your relationships. You took the time to build them, so why not utilize them? Your friends would love to help you, especially if it’s something fairly easy for them to do.

Ole Miss gets Hickerson’s bust Associated Press

OXFORD, Miss. — The Pro Football Hall of Fame bust of the late Gene Hickerson has found a permanent home at University of Mississippi. The Oxford Eagle reports that the bust was presented to Ole Miss by Hickerson’s family. Hickerson helped the Rebels to the 1955 SEC title and a 1956 Cotton Bowl win over TCU, plus a victory over Texas in the 1958 Sugar Bowl. Hickerson went on to play 15 seasons for the Cleveland Browns as the lead blocker for three Hall of Famers — Jim Brown, Leroy Kelly and Bobby Mitchell. He was a member of the

2007 Pro Football Hall of Fame class when he joined tackle Frank M. “Bruiser” Kinard as the only players from Ole Miss to be enshrined in Canton, Ohio. Kinard was inducted in 1970. The bust of Kinard is on display in HollingsworthManning Hall, the Ole Miss athletics memorabilia room located in the Michael S. Starnes Athletics Training Center on campus. Hickerson’s bust will be part of a special display honoring his accomplishments at both Ole Miss and Cleveland. “We are honored to donate Gene’s Hall of Fame bust to

Ole Miss,” Bob Hickerson said. “Gene always loved Ole Miss and had fond memories of his days while playing for Coach (John) Vaught. I know he would be pleased that he continues to be remembered as an Ole Miss Rebel.” Quarterback Bobby Ray Franklin, a teammate of Hickerson at Ole Miss and then for seven years with the Cleveland Browns, presented Hickerson during the Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremonies. “Gene really loved Coach Vaught and Ole Miss as well as anybody,” Franklin said of the man who became his best friend. “I didn’t know Gene

until my freshman year at Ole Miss and he took care of me. In those days, the veteran players were pretty rough on the freshmen. We played two years together at Ole Miss and then those years with the Browns. In fact, we roomed together my rookie season in Cleveland. “Gene was so much faster than the linemen and Coach Vaught made him run with the backs,” Franklin recalled. “It didn’t take Coach (Paul) Brown in Cleveland long to realize how important it was for Gene to pull on end run sweeps.” Hickerson passed away in 2008 after a lengthy illness.

Manning brothers all about football at academy Associated Press

THIBODAUX, La. — Peyton and Eli Manning took some time during their passing academy for youngsters this week to talk about facing off against one another again this season when the Denver Broncos play the New York Giants on Sept. 15. The Houma Courier reported that Peyton, who is entering his 16th NFL season and second with Denver, said he remembers little from the two previous games against Eli except for a moment during the National Anthem. “What I do recall from the first two games, I stand around the 40-45-yard line for the National Anthem. I look across, and I see Eli is in the same exact spot,” Peyton said. “So you do take a mo-

ment and realize how unique it is, but once the game starts, you play to win.” Peyton and Eli, as well as their father, Archie, fielded questions Friday at press conference for the 2013 Manning Passing at Nicholls State. The four-day camp ends Sunday. While the brothers deflected some questions about the upcoming game, Peyton and Eli both said they understood how rare it is for brothers to quarterback opposing teams, and how the game may be the final time the two will compete against each other in the NFL. Peyton is 2-0 against Eli as the Indianapolis Colts, Peyton’s former team, defeated the Giants in 2006 and 2010. Without a win over his big

brother, Eli is looking forward to the game, but he is also amazed at how Peyton played in the 2012 season after missing the entire 2011 season following neck surgery. “(Playing against each other) doesn’t happen that often, and this will be the third time, so it is special to look at the other sideline and see my big brother. It is unique, and I look forward to it.” Besides their upcoming game, the Mannings also spoke of their passing academy in its 18th year and the eighth at Nicholls. Archie said he appreciates all the work done by the university and his staff to host 1,200 campers. “Once again, we are excited to be back in Thibodaux. We have a great staff of college

and pro coaches. We asked our coaches to stand up and give an introduction, and some of them say it is their 16th, 15th, 14th year coming back. That tells us that our staff likes coming back and want to come back,” Archie said. “It takes a lot of people to make this work. My boys have been here for 18 years, 100 percent of the time. Eli was a camper when we first started, and Peyton was a junior at Tennessee. We are glad to be here, and the weather got off to a good start.” Besides working with the Mannings, campers also get instruction from high-profile college quarterbacks who work as counselors.

Hughes gives up 3 HRs, Yankees lose to Twins 4-1 BY MIKE FITZPATRICK Associated Press

NEW YORK — Phil Hughes can become a free agent after the season and he certainly might benefit from leaving Yankee Stadium behind. A flyball pitcher in the wrong ballpark for that, Hughes gave up three home runs to the slumping Minnesota Twins in their 4-1 victory over the New York Yankees on Saturday. Trevor Plouffe, Ryan Doumit and Pedro Florimon connected against Hughes — all on 2-2 pitches with one out. Plouffe sent a legit drive to left-center, but the other two balls probably wouldn’t have left any other ballpark in the majors. “I have a straight fastball, a four-seamer, that when I miss over the plate with it, it leads to flyballs. I just have to concentrate on location, and it comes down to execution,” Hughes said. Samuel Deduno pitched seven impressive innings for the

Twins, who finally figured out a way to beat New York. Minnesota snapped a six-game losing streak with its second victory in 14 games, winning for the first time in six meetings with the Yankees this year. New York won 32 of the previous 39 matchups, including a pair of playoff sweeps. “It’s frustrating,” Hughes said. “I’ve felt good with my stuff over the last three or four starts. There’s just one or two mistakes that I have to stay away from.” Beaten by Hughes earlier this month, Deduno (5-4) scattered six hits in his first start at Yankee Stadium. He struck out three, walked three and matched the longest outing of his career. The Yankees, who swept four games in Minnesota from July 1-4, had won three straight and nine of 12. “Deduno was tough on us,” manager Joe Girardi said. “He has a very good changeup and has given us trouble in the past.”

Hughes (4-9) tied a career high with 10 strikeouts in 7 1-3 innings but gave up three homers in a game for the second time this season. He has allowed 18 long balls in as many starts. The 27-year-old right-hander has the lowest groundball-toflyball ratio of any starter in the majors. He has served up 53 homers the past two seasons, second-most in the big leagues behind Ervin Santana (55). “I thought it was some of the better stuff he’s had all year,” Girardi said. “I think he threw the ball exceptionally well except for a few mistakes.” Casey Fien pitched a scoreless eighth and All-Star closer Glen Perkins, making his first appearance in a week, got three outs for his 21st save in 23 chances. “Exciting baseball game,” said Twins manager Ron Gardenhire, ejected in the eighth for arguing a call at first base. “That was needed. It’s been a

tough go here to get a win, so to see the guys smile again is very exciting.” About 13 hours after the Yankees finished a rain-delayed shutout Friday night, the teams were back on the field. New York jumped on top in the first inning when Ichiro Suzuki doubled and scored on Robinson Cano’s single. Deduno got Vernon Wells to ground into an inning-ending double play and settled in from there. The right-hander, who pitched the Dominican Republic to the World Baseball Classic championship in March, received some help when Doumit caught Zoilo Almonte stealing second with a runner on third to end the fourth. Deduno struck out Suzuki with two on to finish the fifth and worked around a one-out double in the seventh. Plouffe tied it in the second and Doumit put the Twins ahead in the seventh with a line drive to Please see YANKEES | 11A

first two games of the series, found success with their fill-ins. Jose Constanza, recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett, started in left field and hit leadoff with Reed Johnson in center and rookie Joey Terdoslavich in right. The patchwork outfield combined for seven hits, including three by Constanza. Brian McCann and Dan Uggla hit home runs. Minor (9-4) snapped a streak of five straight starts without a win. The left-hander allowed two runs on six hits and one walk — including only one hit in his last five innings.

right. “That’s a single at Target Field. It might be an L-9,” Doumit said, referring to Minnesota’s pitcher-friendly home. “This is a great place to hit. Girardi was well aware of that. “A lot of places that’s not a homer but we’ve taken advantage of that, too,” he said. Gardenhire was tossed by plate umpire Vic Carapazza in the eighth after Clete Thomas and was called out for interference when Hughes’ throw to first hit him in the back and bounced away. Aaron Hicks, who opened the inning with a bunt single, was sent back to first base.

Associated Press

LYON, France — Now, the Tour de France goes sharply uphill, much more sharply than last year. More likely than not, the champion who will be crowned next Sunday in Paris will be the rider who copes best with this last week of vertical torture. The pain starts on Sunday on the horrid climb of Mont Ventoux. The barren white mountain rises from the sunbaked plains of Provence. The 181 brave souls who have survived the 2,325 kilometers (1,444 miles) ridden so far, out of 198 who started two weeks ago, will see the climb coming long before they hit it, so there will be plenty of time for apprehension, for butterflies in the stomach, to build. The forecast is for uninterrupted sunshine, so the riders will find no relief from the weather either. As if the climb itself wasn’t hard enough, they will already have ridden 221 kilometers (137 miles), setting off in the mid-morning, before even reaching the foot of the mountain in the late afternoon. So they will be tired for the ascension, too. Sunday’s stage — a grand total of 242.5 kilometers (150 miles), including the final climb — is the longest of this Tour and starts in the Rhone

valley town of Givors. “Ventoux is always scary,” said GarminSharp rider David Millar, a veteran of 12 Tours. “It’s going to be horrible for everyone.” One of the big questions is whether yellow jerseyholder Chris Froome will zoom or go boom on the climb, perhaps extending his race lead if he has a good day or losing it if he has a disastrous one. The Briton is an excellent climber. The steepness and length of the Ventoux ascent should suit him. But because the climb is so tough, even top riders can lose bags of time if they wilt. Ventoux has the hardest rating for Tour climbs. In around one hour of sustained physical effort, the Tour will go from an altitude of 300 meters to 1,900 meters (the equivalent of a vertical mile). The uphill goes on for 21 kilometers (13 miles) to an old weather station at the summit. Froome is bracing for his main rivals, who need to make up lost time, to try to ride away from him. If they succeed, leaving him far behind, Froome’s Tour could be ruined. But they will be equally wary of him. If they tire too early and Froome then powers away, they may never catch him again before Paris. It could be fascinating cat-and-mouse. Or

Froome and his challengers, tired from recent exertions, could spend the ascent mainly eyeballing each other. “A lot of people have reason to attack now. A lot of people spent energy in the last couple of days so it will be an interesting one,” said Froome, the Tour runner-up last year. Saturday’s stage was a hilly 191-kilometer (119mile) ride to the city of Lyon, France’s gourmet capital. With the main Tour protagonists saving themselves for Sunday, a group of 18 lower-ranked riders broke away. They included Matteo Trentin, who perfectly timed his sprint finish to win his first Tour stage and the first for an Italian in the 100th race. Rolling in more than seven minutes later with the bulk of the pack, Froome gave a few brief television interviews but skipped the usual daily news conference for the race leader so he could get to his hotel earlier and rest up for the Ventoux stage. With 14 of 21 stages completed, Froome’s closest rival is Bauke Mollema — a surprise because the Dutch rider has completed only one Tour, finishing 69th in 2011 and abandoning on Stage 11 last year. He is 2 minutes, 28 seconds off the lead. Alberto Contador, the 2007 and ‘09 champion

The Colombian climber already jousted with Froome in the Pyrenees. Contador said the first time he climbed Ventoux, admittedly not in top shape, “my heart almost came out of my mouth.”

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Megatoadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; wins second Slugburger Championship BY BOBBY J. SMITH

Over a thousand spectators turned out under a blazing July sun to witness a historic spectacle in downtown Corinth â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Main Street Corinthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Second Annual World Slugburger Eating Championship. The only thing hotter than the temperature was the competition. Not only did the contest feature returning champion Matt â&#x20AC;&#x153;Megatoadâ&#x20AC;? Stonie, who set the world record by eating 30 slugburgers last year, the stakes were upped by the presence of Joey â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jawsâ&#x20AC;? Chestnut,â&#x20AC;? Major League Eatingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top ranked competitor. Chestnut holds MLE records in 25 different division. Out of 11 eaters, there could be only one victorious. When the 10-minute time limit was up and the remaining burgers were counted, the Megatoad once again stood victorious. Stonie won by surpassing his previous yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s record by one, eating a total of 31 slugburgers, narrowly defeating Chestnut by one burger. So, whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s it like to be the undisputed two-time Slugburger Eating Champion? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It feels great,â&#x20AC;? said

Stonie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I came here to defend my title and I broke my record by one. The buns were a little harder than last year, but you just had to crush down on it and plow through them.â&#x20AC;? Knowing he was competing against the best in the league, Megatoad said he kept an eye on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jawsâ&#x20AC;? Chestnut through the competition. And how did he feel, just a few minutes after slamming 31 slugburgers? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel fine,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel great about the outcome.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be back next year,â&#x20AC;? he added. Corinthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own Taylor Coombs, director of Main Street Corinth, took the stage to eat against the pros. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a once-in-alifetime opportunity,â&#x20AC;? Coombs said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really excited about the turnout. It was easily 1,500 people.â&#x20AC;? Coombs downed a respectable three-and-ahalf slugburgers in her first foray into professional eating. It was an experience sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll always remember, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After one went down I thought Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d probably throw up. But after I hit the three mark I knew Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d

As the champion, the Megatoad walked away with a $1,500 cash prize. Chestnut netted $750 for his second place finish. Pro eater Juan Rodriguez finished third with 17

burgers for $500, and fellow pro Ronnie Hartman got $250 for fourth, with 13 burgers. Many in the audience were amazed seeing the pro eaters at work. Corinthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Will Dillinger

marveled at the technique exhibited by the top eaters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty crazy,â&#x20AC;? Dill-

inger said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I couldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve knocked out nine or 10 possibly â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but I know I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do 31.â&#x20AC;?

With the “promotion,” Green could command any and all Confederate troops, which opened him up for greater duties and responsibilities. than send in fresh troops he ordered Green’s brigade to charge yet again. And then twice more. The Union artillery tore holes through Green’s ranks and his men fell by the dozen. The cannon fire ceased only when the enemy ran out of ammunition. At dusk the Federals were driven into the inner line of defenses within a quarter mile of the railroad crossing. Gen. Van Dorn planned to resume the attack in the morning and believed his men would easily take Corinth. He sent a messenger to General Hebert to begin the attack at dawn. But the messenger got lost. Unable to find Gen. Hebert he went into a local farmhouse and went to sleep. At dawn… nothing happened. Van Dorn sent three messengers to find Hebert to find out what

the hold-up was. They could not find him. At last Hebert walked into Van Dorn’s tent, sat on a camp stool, and informed his boss he was too sick to fight and would have to be relieved. I can only imagine the state of Van Dorn’s blood pressure. Martin Green, the senior officer in the division, was quickly summoned and informed that not only was he now the acting division commander, he would lead the attack. At which point Green undoubtedly asked, “What attack?” The messenger had never arrived with the battle plan and there was not a single Confederate on the left ready to make the attack. Van Dorn’s blood pressure goes up again. A tremendous burden was placed on Martin’s shoulders as he set out to prepare an attack with

his four brigades. It took hours to get everyone in position. Major Robert Bevier of the 5th Missouri Infantry, unaware of the difficulties involved wrote, “General Green upon whom the authority then fell was hopelessly bewildered as well as ignorant of what ought to be done.” What Martin had to do was align his brigades along the north-south Mobile & Ohio Railroad and then have them attack a position that stretched diagonally from the modern Coca-Cola Bottling Works to the Junior High School. The challenge was to get his entire line to strike the enemy at the same time. In order to do so the entire line had to pivot like a giant closing door. Not an easy task for an experienced division commander, which Martin was not. On the morning

of October 4 he was at the head of about 6,000 men, far more than he had ever lead before. By 9 a.m. the attack was ready to begin when Green was given devastating news; his attack would be made without artillery support. From his vantage point he could see Battery Powell bristling with cannon, in addition several batteries of field artillery were already shelling his men. It would be a long, exposed charge with no artillery of his own. Despite the difficulties, Green’s men charged forward and broke the Union line, capturing Battery Powell and eleven pieces of artillery. The men on his right penetrated into town and after severe house to house fighting arrived at the depot, the very heart of Corinth. Victory was within his grasp. He called for reinforcements to exploit his gains but none came. A brigade sent to his assistance never arrived and his exhausted men began to waver. Unable to hold any longer the division fell back under a mighty Union counter-attack. Without support they were forced to retreat. Nearly a hundred of his men lay dead in the field and several hundred more were wounded. During the height of the action Martin’s horse was shot out from beneath him and a bullet grazed his hip. It had been at that moment, with bullets striking all about him that Martin had jested, “I believe those d___d scoundrels are trying to hit me.” Green’s men were called on the following day at Davis Bridge on the Hatchie River and later during the Siege of Vicksburg. Martin had gained the reputation of an officer who could be counted on in a scrape. On June 25th he was slightly wounded in the fighting at Vicksburg. It wasn’t a dangerous wound and he was up two days later to check on his men in the trenches surrounding the city. At one point he paused and put his field glasses up to study the enemy position. Before he could lower them a bullet crashed through his head, killing him instantly. Martin left behind his wife Maggie, two girls and four sons, including his oldest boy, Thomas, who had fought in his father’s division at Corinth.

Photographers captured grim realities of bloody Civil War The Associated Press

On July 4, 1863, portions of Robert E. Lee’s Confederate army began a slow retreat from Gettysburg. The following day, men stepped onto the field with something other than rifles. Carrying a camera and tripod, photographers walked across the field, stopping to take a picture of the dead that covered the hills around Gettysburg. Timothy O’Sullivan, Alexander Gardner and James Gibson were some of the first photographers on the battlefield. O’Sullivan served as part of Alexander Gardner’s photographic team. Unlike other photographic teams, O’Sullivan and Gardner chose to show the horrors of war, photographing corpses covering the rolling hillsides around Gettysburg. Gardner and

O’Sullivan’s Gettysburg Series of photographs numbered close to 60 images. The vast majority of these photographs contained images of bloated corpses, open graves, dead horses and related images of death. Following the Army of the Potomac from Virginia to Pennsylvania, O’Sullivan and his camera became history’s eyes. He was on or near the battlefield during the second day when the Army of Northern Virginia launched its attack up the Emmittsburg Road on the Union left flank. During the fighting, O’Sullivan saw James Longstreet’s corps fight their way across Rose Woods. At the Wheatfield, possession of the field changed hands as the fighting swirled like a tornado. Eventually, the Confederates gained con-

By today’s journalistic standards, the posed photograph taken by O’Sullivan and Gardner is unethical, but the image has stood the test of time as a signature picture of the Civil War. trol of the Wheatfield. At the Peach Orchard, William Barksdale’s Mississippi Brigade conducted what a Union colonel described as the “grandest charge ever made by mortal man.” During that charge, Barksdale and many of his men fell. Without Barksdale and proper support, the Mississippians’ charge came to an end near the Valley of Death at the base of Little Round Top. On July 3, 1863, O’Sullivan was at George Gordon Meade’s headquarters at Lydia Leister’s

house when Confederate cannon, commanded by Edward Porter Alexander, began an artillery barrage that preceded Pickett’s Charge. At Gettysburg, O’Sullivan shot some of the most well-known photographs of the battle and Civil War. At Rose Woods, he took a picture of dead soldiers stretched across the farmland. The photo, entitled “Harvest of Death,” showed fallen soldiers who fell early in the threeday battle. Their faces and bodies were swollen

and clothes ripped open by the wounded themselves in an attempt to see if their wound was mortal. Many of the soldiers were already picked over by other soldiers needing shoes or other items. At Devil’s Den, O’Sullivan took a photo of a slain Confederate soldier at a location now known as the Sharpshooter’s Nest. In 1975, author William Frassanito discovered that Gardner moved the soldier’s body from another location nearby to the more aesthetically pleasing Sharpshooter’s Nest. A rifle was propped near the body to create the image of a Confederate slain while fighting at Devil’s Den. By today’s journalistic standards, the posed photograph taken by O’Sullivan and Gardner is unethical, but the image

has stood the test of time as a signature picture of the Civil War. O’Sullivan’s other famous Gettysburg photograph is of three Confederate prisoners taken near the Lutheran Seminary. The picture captures the defiant spirit of the three men, standing with their possessions. Called “America’s forgotten photographer,” O’Sullivan’s career did not end with the Civil War. O’Sullivan took pictures for the War Department in geological exploration of the western frontier in Arizona, New Mexico and Nevada. Admired by photographer Ansel Adams, the 19th-century O’Sullivan has gained a following by modern-day photographers, too. It is easy to see O’Sullivan’s influence on Adams’ pictures of the American West.

Waterfowl hunters likely to get more opportunities Sportsmen who are fond of waterfowl hunting could quite possibly be getting more bang for their buck this fall, based on the information recently announced by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in its early season migratory game bird frameworks. During the last week of June, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service released early-season frameworks that provide a window of dates upon which individ-

ual states may select specific season dates that include an increase in David the daily Green teal bag limit and Outdoors possession limits for all migratory game seasons. The Mississippi Commission on Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks will be

considering dates for the 2013-2014 early hunting seasons for migratory game birds this coming Wednesday, July 17, at their monthly meeting. Early migratory game bird hunting seasons that will be considered on this date by the Commission include resident Canada geese, teal, snipe, woodcock and rails. MDWFP waterfowl program leader Houston Havens explained in further detail, “There are two

changes for hunters in the frameworks this year. The framework provides for the harvest of six teal during the September season and for an increase in the possession limit for all migratory birds from two to three times the daily bag limit.” The increase in the early teal season daily bag limit from four to six is said to have arose from a recent assessment of teal populations and the capability of the birds to sustain an

increased harvest. Also, the possession limit increase was implemented in order to provide hunters more flexibility in preserving harvested birds, which will be welcomed with open arms by the many sportsmen who travel great distances for hunting trips each year and want to take their harvest home. Season dates and bag limits approved for the early season migratory

game birds mentioned will be released following this week’s Commission meeting.

Before marrying, merge a perfectly accessorized home Special to the Daily Corinthian

(NewsUSA) — Some brides-to-be might find it hard to think beyond the intense planning that a wedding requires. But beyond the pomp and circumstance of the big day, it’s important to think ahead to mergers -- the merging of styles and decor to set up a home the bride and groom will both love. Ideally, decorating a first home together begins with the furniture and accessories near and dear to both the bride and groom. But if a bride-to-be can’t live with her fiance’s 1970s thrift store coffee table and orange bean bag chair, chances are he won’t be thrilled with her antique oak hope chest and ornately carved sleigh bed. Can these two conflicting schemes coexist after the couple has crossed the threshold? Designer home collections make it easier than ever to meld female and male sensibilities in home decor by offering products to suit a variety of styles. Bedding, furniture, fabrics, area rugs, flooring, storage accessories, table linens and window coverings are all designed to work in traditional and more updated settings. No matter which room is the newlyweds’ favorite, bedrooms, baths and living rooms all can be decked out in style.

Setting the tone Choose a color scheme together, and creatively arrange furniture and accessories around it. Find a neutral ground to meld his love of earth tones, for example, with her love of soft fabrics. A melange of colors and fabrics will inspire looks ideal for both Mr. and Mrs.

Splish, splash Create an understated, clean look in the bath for him, but add accessories with a dash of color to satisfy a bride-to-be’s lively outlook. Bold shower curtains, wastebaskets and vanity items inject freshness and personality.

Merging moods She’s a homebody; he likes beaches and picnics. For bedrooms and living rooms, couples can combine sensibilities with bedding and furniture lines that bring the outside in, and vice versa. Try mixing a table from one line with a chair from another -- mixing it up is a playful way to punch up the personality of a room. Just like in the corporate world, mergers can either run smoothly or be a headache. By considering the sensibilities the bride and groom share -- rather than just the differences -- creating a first home together can be one merger full of fringe benefits.

2 Renoir masterpieces on view at the Dixon Special to the Daily Corinthian

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The Dixon Gallery and Gardens is pleased to announce that visitors can experience two rarely seen Impressionist masterpieces by celebrated French artist Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919). Joining selections from the Dixon’s permanent collection, Renoir’s The Loge (1874) and The Umbrella (1878) will be on view now through Labor Day of this year. “Both paintings are breathtaking examples by one of the masters of the French Impressionist movement,” says Julie Pierotti, Dixon Associate curator. “They show Renoir at the height of his power as an artist and the Dixon is fortunate to have these paintings in our galleries. They are stunning works that really must be enjoyed in person.” Renoir’s The Loge was

painted in 1874, the same year as the first of eight independently staged Impressionist exhibitions in Paris. A larger version of The Loge, now in the Courtauld Institute of Art in London, actually appeared in that first Impressionist show. The work offers a glimpse into a private theater box at the Paris Opéra. A fashionable young woman and her male companion are at once observers of and participants in the spectacle that was the Parisian theater. By the time Renoir completed The Umbrella in 1878, Impressionism was at its peak. (Currently on view in the Dixon residence through Sept. 2, Renoir’s masterpieces are on loan from a private collection. For more information, call Carolyn Fly, 901761-5250, ex. 118 or visit

Grand Ole Opry installs two new tours The Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Darius Rucker’s surprise invitation to become a member of the Grand Ole Opry is a moment he says he will always cherish — and now fans will be able to share the experience with him over and over again. The singer, who rose to fame as the frontman for South Carolina rockers Hootie & The Blowfish, began pursuing his lifelong passion for country music a few years ago. Now he is the video host for one of two new tours that have been added to the Opry’s backstage tour line-up. The tours are the “VIP Behind The Opry Curtain Tour” and the “Opry House Post-Show Tour,” which Rucker hosts. “They’re going to get to relive that night, and that moment” he was asked to

join the Opry, said Rucker, who was inducted shortly after the invitation last October. “But they’re also going to see some other great things behind the scenes.” For the behind-the-curtain tour, a limited number of guests go backstage and get an intimate look at the inner workings of the Opry moments before the big curtain goes up. “The Grand Ole Opry is a great show on stage, but it’s a whole other world backstage,” said Brenda Colladay, who has been the Opry museum’s curator for 16 years. “It puts people right in the thick of ... all of those different artists, and musicians and square dancers, and everybody backstage. It’s an exciting time.” Following Opry performances on certain nights, Rucker will share with


“The Grand Ole Opry is a great show on stage, but it’s a whole other world backstage. It puts people right in the thick of ... all of those different artists, and musicians and square dancers, and everybody backstage. It’s an exciting time.” Brenda Colladay Opry museum curator guests some of his favorite backstage moments and memories as they visit areas occupied just minutes before by artists on that night’s show. “Backstage at the Opry is awesome,” Rucker said. “You never know who’s going to show up, who’s going to be standing around; and all the great pictures and all the great memories.”

Among the Ruckerhosted videos are “Opry home movies”, which share video footage of Opry debuts, including Vince Gill, Alan Jackson and Kenny Chesney, as well as vintage performances by George Jones and Dolly Parton. There’s also an array of Opry fashions and hairstyles through the years. And then there’s that

night the 47-year-old Rucker was asked to be an Opry member, the third black performer to hold Opry membership, joining Country Music Hall of Fame members DeFord Bailey and Charley Pride. Rucker has had a multiplatinum, award-winning run since his decision to pursue country music. He performed at the Opry that night before receiving the visit from unannounced guest Brad Paisley, who surprised him with the invitation. “That day is still one of those days that I remember like it was yesterday,” said Rucker, who released his third country album in May. “That was probably the first day I felt I was part of country music.” Bill Cody is an on-air personality for country radio station WSM-AM and an Opry announcer.

He recalled the conversation he had with the Opry’s general manager leading up to Rucker’s invitation. “Pete Fisher came over to me shortly before the show ... and said, ‘Tonight we’ve got some plans and it’s top secret, and here’s what’s going down: Darius is going to be asked to become the next member of the Opry,’” said Cody, who will also share Opry moments by video during the tours. “And I’m like, oh, wow!” Other areas and items that can be seen on all three tours include a sampling of 18 dressing rooms that are decorated with a unique theme to honor Opry greats like Minnie Pearl, Porter Wagoner and Jimmy Dickens, as well as Studio A, where “Hee Haw” and other TV shows have been filmed over the years.

Shakespeare festival ends run The Associated Press

OXFORD — To be or not to be has been answered, at least for the Oxford Shakespeare Festival. The 10th anniversary season was the last for the popular summer theater event, but there are hopes that some sort of artistic production may continue in the summer. Joe Turner Cantú, artistic director of the program, officially announced the end of the festival this past week. The festival is coming to an end due to the National Association of Schools of Theatre asking the Theatre Arts Department faculty to clarify and define its relationship with OSF and a request from the University of Mississippi Provost Morris H. Stocks that the festival be placed under one department, rather than be a hybrid of the theater department, Ford Center, Division of Outreach and music department. The theater department met in the fall and decided not to continue its support of the program. “We really have been an island,” Cantú said. “No one entity is the owner of the festival, so to speak.” Theater Department Chair Rene Pulliam was unavailable for comment. Cantú said that he has also tried to find a younger faculty member to take control of the festival for the past three years and he hoped by the 10th anniversary someone would take over. But, in the fall, the decision became moot when he learned there would no longer be a festival. “I’ve been going through all the stages of grief pretty much,” Cantú said. “I am at the point that I am just

grateful. It’s always been a labor of love. No one was doing that for the money. I’m proud of the fact that I played a part in providing so many artists — local, professional, students — an opportunity to do their work and to continue their creativity. I have no regrets.” Cantú had previously run a festival at universities where he had previously been employed, so when he came to the University of Mississippi to be a theater professor he decided to try it again. “I came here to be the head of the acting program,” Cantú said. “Then I went to the Ford Center and I did a little research and one thing led to another.” Cantú said theater is expensive and requires a lot of manpower, and he doesn’t blame the theater department for choosing not to take on the project. For the first few years, in order to not go into the red, he often went without pay for the festival. In the past four years, the festival has operated better financially and he has been able to get paid a small fee. All the others involved also get paid for their efforts. Gertrude Castellow Ford Center for the Performing Arts Director Norm Easterbrook said he believes theater department is looking at trying to find some activity for the summer. “It’s been an asset to the community to have the activity in the community,” Easterbrook said. “The Ford Center has been a very strong supporter since it started. I’m going to be sad to see it go. In the summertime,

the community has the need for some kind of art and I hope we can fill that space. It’s too bad. I think it’s a shame that the festival has gone away. “Whenever anything like this happens you’ve got to take a break and breathe a little bit and then go back and reassess what parts of the activity did work for us and what can be done differently to keep those things alive. It was a really valuable experience for those that participated in it. I think all of the departments need to be in league together for productions like that to work in the summertime.” Easterbrook said he is not yet booking the Ford Center for the same time next year, as he wants to see what happens at the university level before considering what could replace the festival. Cantú said he is looking forward to continuing teaching and to focus on a play, as he has not written in the past 10 years. He hopes to also get more involved with Theatre Oxford in the future once he obtains full professorship. “I didn’t want to quit,” Cantú said. “I wanted the time to do other things but I would never ever want to quit. I wasn’t about to be responsible for dropping this big ball. I never want anyone to think that this happened because Joe got too stressed or too tired. It has much less to do with me than it has to do with the situation.” Cantú said he hopes to get help from the library archiving materials from the festival’s 10 years so that in the future there may be someone interested in renewing such a project.

Hasselbeck exits ‘View’ with no hard feelings The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Elisabeth Hasselbeck left “The View” after a decade on Wednesday, showing no hard feelings toward her colleagues even though her political views made for some awkward and heated exchanges on the daytime chat fest over the years. Her exit came less than 24 hours after it was announced that Hasselbeck will join Fox News Channel and the “Fox & Friends” morning show in September. Fellow cast member Joy Behar joked about Hasselbeck being a “fish out of water” on the Fox show, which is popular with conservatives. Hasselbeck, who appeared at the Republican National Convention in 2008, usu-

ally found herself outnumbered on “The View” when she offered conservative political opinions. On Wednesday, she thanked the show’s executive producer, Bill Geddie, for challenging her and telling her to “never be fearful of voicing my opinion.” Hasselbeck warmly thanked all of her colleagues. She said she calculated that she spent some 3,000 days working with show creator Barbara Walters, an experience that was like a master’s class in communications and journalism. She said Whoopi Goldberg was as loving as she was talented and that she had “an insane amount of respect” for Behar. “I even like it when Joy has been able to throw a

one-liner in and make me laugh even when I don’t want to,” she said. Behar said their debates added excitement to the show and “we were never mad at each other.” The show’s other cast member, Sherri Shepherd, was away on Wednesday. The popular ABC show also faces the loss of Behar this fall. Walters, its creator, is retiring from television next year. Although former Playboy playmate Jenny McCarthy is widely considered a top candidate to join the show, Walters said Wednesday that the show will take its time naming replacements. There will be a series of guest hosts, a process that often amounts to on-air auditions.

July 14, 1969 - June 21, 2005 The Lonely Hunt Thereʼs a chill in the air Meaning fall is here Deer seasons open, something We held so dear. As I step into the woods the Wind is brisk and cold. The leaves in the trees are of A brilliant red and gold. As I approach the tree where You had your stand, I can still see the marks on it Made by your hands. As I look up the tree into the cold crisp air, It breaks my heart knowing Youʼre not there. I set myself down, my back Against your tree. I fold my arms and rest my Head upon my knees Tears well up in my eyes and I find it hard to see. As I set here reflecting back On what used to be. Iʼll never forget that horrible Day, When the works of Satan Took it all away. Hunting is not as enjoyable As it used to be. Knowing that you can no longer go with me. But when Iʼm in the woods On the trail of a deer, I have this most wonderful Feeling that you are so very near In loving memory Of Tim “Turtle” Kingen By: Tommy Kingen
