City gets overall excellence award BY JEBB JOHNSTON jjohnston@dailycorinthian.com

BILOXI — The City of Corinth took top honors in the excellence awards handed out Wednesday by the Mississippi Municipal League. During the annual conference at the Mississippi Coast

Coliseum & Convention Center in Biloxi, Corinth received the overall excellence award for the Clifford G. Worsham Surface Water Treatment Facility, which greatly expanded the city’s water capacity by tapping the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway as a water source.

“I feel so much pride for the city today,” said a jubilant Mayor Tommy Irwin. “That project started probably 30 years ago, and it took a lot of people along the way to make it happen.” Awards are given to cities in the areas of public safety, planning and economic devel-

opment and city spirit. A committee of judges outside of the MML selects the winners, recognizing cities and towns for innovative problem solving, excellence in management, citizen participation and striving to provide a higher level of service. Irwin and members of the

Board of Aldermen were among the 3,000 in Biloxi attending classes and networking with other municipal leaders at the three-day conference. The recently completed water project is now in operation. Please see AWARD | 2

District reviews MSTAR plan BY JEBB JOHNSTON jjohnston@dailycorinthian.com

The Corinth School District is making preparations for a big shift in evaluation procedures for teachers and administrators. The changes are among the new requirements that come with Mississippi’s waiver from No Child Left Behind. The district’s board of trustees on Monday adopted the Mississippi Statewide Teacher Appraisal Rubric (MSTAR) for teacher evaluation, the Mississippi Principal Evaluation System and the Mississippi School Boards Association superintendent evaluation. The MSTAR evaluation looks at planning, instruction, assessment, learning environment and professional responsibility. “It requires that a teacher have an observation in the fall and an observation in the spring, and in addition to that, five walk-through observations that will be about 15 to 20 minutes,” said Superintendent Lee Childress. “The formal observations have to be what they consider to be a full class period, so we’re talking about probably 35 to 50 minutes, depending on what you might see at the elementary level.”

Walk-through observations are expected to begin in September. Student performance on statewide assessments will be one component of the teacher’s rating. “This is not a ‘gotcha’ system,” said Childress. “The state views this as a system that can truly bring about instructional improvement and increased student achievement.” Some training sessions have already been held for MSTAR, and more are scheduled in the next few weeks. The new evaluations for principals and superintendents will be more goal-oriented. In other business: ■ In personnel items, the board accepted the resignation of Shana Green, counselor at Corinth Middle School, and approved the hiring of Rob Phillip for the position. The board approved request for leave for Amber Ross, a Corinth Elementary School teacher. The board approved the hiring of Volante Jones, assistant girls and boys track Please see MSTAR | 2

One man was transported to Magnolia Regional Health Center following a one-car crash on US 72 on Tuesday. The accident happened not long after 5 p.m. a few miles west of Corinth in the westbound lane, when the injured party’s car reportedly swerved to miss a truck and trailer and left the highway. The car traveled down the embankment and struck a drainage ditch between the

highway and a field. Shortly after the wreck emergency personnel called for Air Evac, but soon learned that the driver was injured but it was not severe enough to require an airlift. The driver was taken to the hospital via ambulance. According to personnel on the scene, the driver did not appear to be seriously injured. A passenger in the car was not injured. The accident is under investigation by the Mississippi Highway Patrol.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Voters in six Memphis suburbs have decided to start public school districts in the municipalities where they live. Residents of Arlington, Bartlett, Collierville, Germantown, Lakeland and Millington overwhelmingly approved separate school systems in the second vote on the issue in less than a year. A federal judge invalidated the first vote. The suburbs want to avoid a massive merger

between the struggling Memphis City Schools system and the more successful Shelby County Schools system. Suburban leaders fear that education quality will suffer in the huge merged system. Critics say the predominantly white suburbs want to avoid merging with the majorityblack Memphis district on racial grounds. Experts say the merger represents one of the largest school consolidations in decades. The merger is to take effect in August.

Terral Jr., the leader of the 7th Mississippi Battalion who was mortally wounded while leading a charge against the Union position at White House Ridge during the first day of the battle. He was reportedly a full 20 yards ahead of his men, leading them on, when the fatal bullet found him. Five items belonging to Terral are on display — his officers sword, a rare .36 caliber Kerr revolver, a small Bible given to the soldier by his mother in 1854, a journal containing his letters and a family portrait of Terral. Terral was carrying the sword and revolver when he was mortally wounded on Oct. 3, 1862. The belongings were sent home to his son after Terral’s death. With their unique connection to local history, the items are a welcome addition to the Interpretive Center.

Renasant profits rise 26 percent in quarter Associated Press

Today is Thursday, July 18, the 199th day of 2013. There are 166 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On July 18, 1863, during the Civil War, Union troops spearheaded by the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry, made up of black soldiers, charged Confederateheld Fort Wagner on Morris Island, S.C. The Confederates were able to repel the Northerners, who suffered heavy losses; the 54th’s commander, Col. Robert Gould Shaw, was among those who were killed.

On this date: In A.D. 64, the Great Fire of Rome began. In 1536, the English Parliament passed an act declaring the authority of the pope void in England. In 1792, American naval hero John Paul Jones died in Paris at age 45. In 1872, Britain enacted voting by secret ballot. In 1913, comedian Red Skelton was born in Vincennes, Ind. In 1932, the United States and Canada signed a treaty to develop the St. Lawrence Seaway. In 1940, the Democratic National Convention at Chicago Stadium nominated President Franklin D. Roosevelt for an unprecedented third term in office. In 1947, President Harry S. Truman signed a Presidential Succession Act, which placed the speaker of the House and the Senate president pro tempore next in the line of succession after the vice president. In 1969, Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., left a party on Chappaquiddick Island near Martha’s Vineyard with Mary Jo Kopechne, 28; some time later, Kennedy’s car went off a bridge into the water. (Kennedy was able to escape, but Kopechne drowned.) In 1976, at the Montreal Olympics, Romanian gymnast Nadia Comaneci received the first-ever perfect score of 10 with her routine on uneven parallel bars. (Comaneci would go on to receive six more 10s at Montreal.) In 1984, gunman James Huberty opened fire at a McDonald’s fast food restaurant in San Ysidro, Calif., killing 21 people before being shot dead by police. Walter F. Mondale won the Democratic presidential nomination in San Francisco. In 1988, Texas Treasurer Ann Richards, delivering the keynote address at the Democratic National Convention in Atlanta, skewered presumed Republican nominee George H.W. Bush as having been “born with a silver foot in his mouth.”

TUPELO — Regional bank Renasant Corp.’s profit rose 26 percent in 2013’s second quarter from the same three months of 2012, as it set aside less for bad loans and increased interest earnings. Renasant said Tuesday it posted quarterly profit of $8.02 million, or 32 cents per share, up from $6.35 million or 25 cents per share in 2012’s second quarter. Analysts polled by FactSet had estimated 32 cents per share, on average.

“Our second quarter results reflect our continued efforts to grow net income, which increased for the sixth consecutive quarter.” E. Robinson McGraw Chairman and CEO “Our second quarter results reflect our continued efforts to grow net income, which increased for the sixth consecutive quarter,” said Chairman and CEO E. Robinson McGraw. The bank said total loans increased to $2.85 billion, up 8 percent over a year ago. Renasant set aside $3

million for future bad loans, $1.7 million less than in 2012’s second quarter. Renasant’s return on assets rose to 0.76 percent. That key measure of profitability has been steadily rising at Renasant, but the bank has trailed statewide and national averages. In 2013’s first quarter, Renasant had

return on assets of 0.73 percent, compared to 0.84 percent for all banks based in Mississippi and 1.12 percent for all banks nationwide. The amount that the company collected in interest from borrowers, net of what it paid out to savers, rose to $34 million. However, the net interest margin, a measure of that spread divided by all loans, drifted down to 3.88 percent. Low interest rates have caused that spread, which is the bread-and-butter of bank profits, to narrow. Based in Tupelo, the $4.2 billion bank has offices in Mississippi, Tennessee, Al-

abama and Georgia. Renasant awaits regulatory approval to merge with First M&F Corp. of Kosciusko, Miss., after shareholders for both banks approved the $143 million stock purchase in June. The merger will create the fourth-largest bank in Mississippi, with $5.8 billion in assets. “Our pending merger with First M&F Corp, which we anticipate completing during the third quarter of 2013, will only enhance our strong performance potential,” McGraw said. Renasant spent $385,000 on merger expenses in the second quarter.

Shelby County suspends principal 2 injured as small after audit finds fraudulent claims plane crashes into lake Associated Press Associated Press

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The Shelby County Schools have suspended the principal of Melrose High School amid a financial investigation. Principal Leviticus Pointer was placed on leave Monday, according to The Commercial Appeal.

An audit found 11 cases of possible fraud or theft. The school district audit found evidence that former Melrose librarian Jonathan Phipps pocketed money for expenses he didn’t incur and was paid to coach a non-existent wrestling team. Phipps’ attorney, Michael Floyd, said his cli-

ent was transferred in late winter from Melrose to Geeter Middle School. Pointer said the school tried to gin up interest in a wrestling team, but there was little found, so it was never started. The audit results have been sent to the white collar crime unit at the state comptroller’s office.

COLLIERVILLE, Tenn. — Officials say two people were injured when a small plane crashlanded in a lake in the Memphis suburb of Collierville Mark Heuberger, spokesman for the town of Collierville, says the single engine plane crashed Wednesday af-

ternoon. He says the plane briefly caught fire. Heuberger says two people walked out of the wreckage of the plane, which was partially submerged near the shore of the lake. They were treated on the scene by paramedics. The cause of the crash is under investigation. Identities of the two people are not available.

Zimmerman verdict, double standards keep nation divided We are so programmed by our history with race in America that reaction to the acquittal of George Zimmerman on charges of murdering Trayvon Martin depends largely upon one’s individual, even group Cal experience. Thomas If you are African-American, you might react like former Columnist Washington, D.C., homicide detective Rod Wheeler. Appearing on Fox News, Wheeler said many blacks look at quarterback Michael Vick, jailed for taking part in an illegal interstate dogfighting ring, and wonder why Zimmerman gets away with killing a young black man. If you are white, or Hispanic, you could possibly see the trial as something whipped up by the always racially conscious media and rhetorical bomb-throwers like Rev. Al Sharpton. You might conclude that if the victim had been white and the perpetrator black the media would have shown little or no interest. Or you could point to O.J. Simpson, who was acquitted of killing two white people by a majority African-American jury. Your view would be reinforced by a case in Georgia in which four African-American teenagers beat a 36-year-old white man as he emerged from a gas station convenience store. While trying to escape, the man stumbled into the middle lane of a highway where he was struck by a car and killed. The Marietta Daily Journal reported that the four are charged with felony murder, aggravated assault and violation of the Georgia Street Gang Act. The incident occurred two weeks ago, but I have seen no national media coverage. As defense lawyers noted after the Zimmerman verdict, the loss of any life, especially a young one like Trayvon Martin, is a tragedy, but tragedy and race were not on trial in Sanford, Fla. Putting all extraneous considerations aside, the jury of six women was asked if there was sufficient evidence presented to convict George Zimmerman of murder or manslaughter. The jury found there was not. The Justice Department says it will look into the shooting death of Martin to determine if evidence in the case “reveals a prosecutable violation.” That may turn out to be more of a political decision than one based on facts. It would likely perpetuate the media narrative of blacks as victims and whites (one CNN reporter ludicrously called Zimmerman a “white Hispanic”) as descendants of slave masters. What helps keep us divided is our propensity for labeling and categorizing people. Certain behaviors and language are tolerated, while others are not. Some people can get away with language that others cannot. Some faiths can be disparaged while others are insulated from criticism. We hyphenate some Americans, making them appear as though they are less than fully American. What is needed is one standard. One national identity. One America. We’re not there yet. Benjamin Crump, an attorney for Trayvon Martin’s family, compared Trayvon’s death to those of Emmett Till and Medgar Evers. Any attempt to turn Trayvon into a civil rights martyr similar to Till and Evers goes well beyond the apples and oranges analogy. More to the point was a comment by Zimmerman’s attorney Don West: “The prosecution of George Zimmerman was disgraceful.” The defense believes he should never have been brought to trial. Co-defense counsel Mark O’Mara speculated about “how many lawsuits will be spawned by this fiasco.” Probably quite a few, given our neverending racial double standard. As both sides noted during and after the trial, there are no winners in this case. (Readers may e-mail Daily Corinthian columnist Cal Thomas at tmseditors@tribune. com.)

Prayer for today Father, help us to surrender ourselves fully to You so we are among those who have supernatural faith which makes us confident of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see with human eyes. Amen.

Fact, fiction of immigration reform a problem For more centrist Republicans, the 2012 election cycle was enough to jumpstart a new discussion of compromise from hard right-wing dogma on immigration reform both at the national and state level. Yet what was a promising start for the 2013 version of immigration reform had by this month ground down to another stalemate. Republicans on Capitol Hill are still too worried about getting out of their congressional primary races to serious debate immigration reform even if it costs the GOP in presidential elections to come. The message in 2012 was clear — Hispanic voters now total about 9 percent of the national electorate. In presidential politics and in the politics of control of the Congress, Latino voters are now strong enough to assist their friends and hurt their enemies. Former President George W. Bush caved on immigration reform despite having family ties to America’s Hispanic community. President Barack Obama made exorbitant political promises to deliver immigration reform, but caved on them

in a slightly different direction. Both presidents failed to move the needle on Sid Salter immigration reform deColumnist spite having bipartisan support for some form of immigration reform. Despite that fact, Obama got a whopping 71 percent of the Hispanic vote in 2012 to GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s anemic 29 percent. That development came despite the fact Obama deported more immigrants than did Bush. Congress, as it has for decades, has talked in circles around immigration reform until the numbers of illegal or undocumented immigrants grew to the level that mass deportation is neither fiscally feasible nor politically plausible and that the nation’s economy has become inexorably intertwined with immigrant labor. Not only have immigrants workers filled the void on low wage, low skill jobs that Americans in other demographics have not pursued, they have done so with a

sterling work ethic and a performance that has given them upward mobility in the workplace. That’s reflected in a recent Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy study that suggests that state and local governments could collect an extra $2 billion annually from immigrants if Congress was successful in a national immigration policy overhaul. ITEP is a liberal think tank and their study didn’t address the obvious increased costs for state and local governments that such reforms would produce, principally increased public health care, educational costs and other entitlements. But what the study does establish is that even immigrants in the country illegally under false documentation pay a number of various taxes, principally sales taxes. Some illegals even pay property and income taxes, the study notes. Congressional Budget Office estimates say immigration reform could produce a $135 billion deficit reduction over the next decade. In Mississippi, the ITEP estimate is immigration reform would produce an

additional $12 million in annual tax revenue on top of the estimated $48 million in annual taxes already collected by state and local government here from immigrant taxpayers. But in Mississippi, as apparently in much of the U.S. House districts around the country, immigration reform is still a political hostage as Republicans fear conservative reprisals in GOP primaries if they support any immigration reform measure that contains a so-called “path to citizenship” for the estimated 12 to 15 million illegal immigrants already in the country. Yet it’s also obvious Republicans all over the country are toning down their illegal immigrant rhetoric. Fortunately, illegal immigration is just simply from a numerical standpoint a top-drawer problem in Mississippi. There’s also been a decline in the amount of state legislation offered on the topic after a flurry of bills was introduced in the last five years.

George Zimmerman trial comes down to race BY ROGER SIMON Anyone who thinks the stalking of Trayvon Martin and the trial of his killer, George Zimmerman, was not about race is kidding himself. We would wish it otherwise. Race is the most important undiscussed issue in America today. On Monday, Attorney General Eric Holder called the shooting “unnecessary,” but did not delve any deeper into the political morass of race, fear, hatred and violence in America. We talk about race only after a tragedy or crisis -- Martin’s shooting and Zimmerman’s acquittal -- or after those rare moments when we pat ourselves on the back and tell ourselves we don’t need to talk about race because the election of Barack Obama made the United States a “post-racial” society. But while Obama’s election was significant, historic and even epic, it did not signal an end to racism in America. Martin, 17, was black and unarmed when he was shot to death on Feb. 26, 2012, in Sanford, Fla., by Zimmerman, 28, whom the news media took to calling a “white Hispanic.” (His mother was born in Peru.) There were many disputes during the trial about what

actually happened that rainy night, but both sides agree that Zimmerman was suspicious of Martin, whom he recognized as black, walking around in his neighborhood. Zimmerman left the safety of his truck to search for Martin on foot. Zimmerman was carrying a Kel-Tec 9 millimeter semiautomatic handgun, for which he had a concealed carry permit. There was a confrontation, and Zimmerman shot and killed Martin. Zimmerman was questioned by police and let go. But many, especially in the black community, were outraged. President Obama said a few weeks later in the Rose Garden, “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon. I think (Trayvon’s parents) are right to expect that all of us as Americans are going to take this with the seriousness it deserves, and we are going to get to the bottom of exactly what happened.” Finally, 46 days after the shooting and the intervention by Florida’s governor, who appointed a special prosecutor, Zimmerman was arrested and charged with second-degree murder, the highest charge prosecutors could bring. Which was the problem. It was a classic case of overcharging. But to prove murder in

the second degree in Florida, the prosecutors would have to prove that Zimmerman had acted with “a depraved mind without regard for human life” when he shot Martin, and they would have to prove it beyond a reasonable doubt. Did the racial atmosphere force the prosecutors to bring a charge they knew they would have a tough time proving? They say no. In his opening statement to the jury, prosecutor John Guy said: “We are confident that at the end of this trial you will know in your head, in your heart, in your stomach that George Zimmerman did not shoot Trayvon Martin because he had to. He shot him for the worst of all reasons, because he wanted to.” But Zimmerman’s legal team presented a different scenario: An innocent man is attacked by an aggressive teenager, knocked to the ground, his nose broken and his head beaten against the concrete several times. Zimmerman was in fear for his life and responded with justifiable deadly force. The judge made sure race was downplayed during the trial. She ruled that the prosecution could accuse Zimmerman of “profiling” Martin, but not “racially” profiling him.

In the end, the jurors did not find Zimmerman innocent, only that the prosecution had failed to prove Zimmerman guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. The jurors also did not find Zimmerman guilty of the lesser charge of manslaughter, which they might have done had prosecutors concentrated on that charge. Martin was breaking no law by being a black teenager walking through a neighborhood wearing a hoodie. He had as much right to be in that neighborhood as Zimmerman did. But Zimmerman, under Florida’s demented gun laws, had a right to be carrying a concealed handgun that was ready to be fired. As his attorney, Mark O’Mara, said on CNN Monday, “If you have a gun and don’t have a round in the chamber, it’s a paperweight.” Oh, how I wish George Zimmerman had been carrying a paperweight that night. Trayvon Martin might be alive today and his family spared the agony they are now going through. And it would be good to be able to talk about race in America without agony. But that day has not yet arrived. (Daily Corinthian columnist Roger Simon is Politico’s chief political columnist.)

Elderly grocery store owner refuses robber MARSHFIELD, Wis. — A masked robber apparently thought the 96-year-old owner of a neighborhood grocery store in Marshfield would be an easy target for his crime. But, he was so wrong. Margaretta Wolf has owned the store bearing her family name for 54 years. And she wasn’t about to turn over her cash to the armed intruder after he ordered her to open the cash register. “I said, ‘I’m not opening up that cash register and that’s it, I’m not opening it. I said you can have all the Tootsie Rolls you want but I am not opening that cash register,’� said Wolf. The man in the silver mask and carrying a knife continued to give Wolf orders during the robbery attempt Monday. “He said, ‘Walk in the back of the store,’ I said, ‘I’m not walking no place, I’m standing right here,’� Wolf recounted. The elderly store owner stood her ground when the man flashed a pocketknife and placed it on the counter. “I said, ‘I’ll press a button and I’ll have somebody here in seconds,’� she said. Wolf said the wouldbe robber appeared frustrated, looked around, spotted a security camera in the corner, grabbed the knife and fled. Marshfield Police Lt. Darren Larsen said he’s

just glad Wolf is OK.  

Kidnapping suspect pleads not guilty CLEVELAND — The Cleveland man accused of holding three women captive in his home for more than a decade pleaded not guilty Wednesday on an expanded indictment charging him with 512 counts of kidnapping and 446 counts of rape, among other crimes. The charges returned Friday by a grand jury against Ariel Castro expanded on a 329-count indictment filed earlier that covered only part of the time frame of the alleged crimes. He previously pleaded not guilty to that indictment. Castro, 53, has been jailed since his arrest on May 6 shortly after the women escaped to freedom. As in past court appearances, he kept his head down Wednesday, typically responding to a judge’s questions with oneword answers. Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Judge Pamela Barker repeatedly told Castro to raise his head and keep his eyes open during the brief court appearance. The judge continued his bond at $8 million. Besides kidnapping and rape, the new 977-count indictment also charges him with seven counts of gross sexual imposition, six counts of felonious assault, three counts of child endangerment and one count of possessing criminal tools.

Police ID family killed crossing road

Associated Press

Judge rejects deal for ex-postal worker

PHILADELPHIA — A mother and three young sons were struck and killed while trying to cross a busy Philadelphia highway after dark, and police on Wednesday were questioning a driver who may have been drag racing. A fourth son was injured in the crash Tuesday night on Roosevelt Boulevard, a major artery that divides neighborhoods in north and northeast Philadelphia. The highway has become notorious for pedestrian fatalities, many of them at night and several involving drag racing. Samara Selena Banks, 28, was pushing a stroller while crossing the boulevard with her four sons at about 10:30 p.m. when they were hit by a 2012 Audi, police said. Banks and her 23-month-old son died at the scene. The three other children were taken to hospitals, where the 7-month-old and 4-year-old were later pronounced dead. The surviving 5-year-old was in stable condition with bumps and bruises, police said. They identified the 7-month-old as Saamir Williams but did not immediately release the other boys’ names. No arrests had been made, but police said Wednesday that charges were pending. Police Chief Inspector Scott Small said there is a crosswalk near the area where the family was trying to cross.

OXFORD — A federal judge rejected a plea agreement for a former U.S. Postal Service employee in Tupelo charged with stealing $20 from a package. The indictment in the case said Steven Joslyn stole the money from a piece of mail in September 2012. He was expected to plead guilty this week in U.S. District Court in Oxford, but the judge rejected the agreement and set a trial for Sept. 16. He faces up to five years in prison and up to a $250,000 fine.  

Hood will file appeal to support gun law  JACKSON — Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood says he’ll file an appeal early next week to try to push an open-carry gun measure into law. A Hinds County circuit judge has put the law on hold, calling it “unconstitutionally vague.� Hood will ask the state Supreme Court to overturn that ruling. Hood says many law enforcement officers around the state are confused about whether they can arrest someone who’s openly carrying a firearm. Hood says a Hinds County judge has the power to block a state law from taking effect, because the seat of state government is in Hinds County. But Hood’s also telling sheriffs and police

officers in the other 81 counties they might be wasting their time by arresting people for simply carrying a gun that’s not concealed.   

Teen charged in death wants out of jail VICKSBURG — A Vicksburg teenager charged in the slaying of her stepmother has asked to be released on bail for the second time. The Vicksburg Post reports that attorney Marshal Sanders filed a motion this past week asking for Circuit Judge Isadore Patrick to release the girl on bail. Patrick set a hearing for 9 a.m. Friday. The girl, now 17, has been held without bail in the Warren County Jail since December 2011 when her bonding agent revoked her $75,000 bail. The girl’s trial on a murder charge was indefinitely postponed as she awaits mental evalu-

ation. Authorities said the body of 32-year-old Michelle Vega was found May 2, 2011, in the family home in Vicksburg. Authorities say neighbors reported seeing the girl drive away from the home minutes before her stepbrother returned and found his mother’s body. The girl was arrested six days later. Sanders argued in her motion that the only reason the girl’s bail was revoked is because her relatives could not afford to pay the bonding agent, according to court records. District Attorney Ricky Smith said he is opposing the bail request because his office has not received word on whether her court-ordered mental evaluation has been completed. “This case has drug on and the primary reason it has taken so long is getting the evaluation,� Smith said.

Jackson County sheriff turns over records PASCAGOULA — Jackson County Sheriff Mike Byrd has provided a Gulf Coast newspaper with flight records for the sheriff’s department helicopters. Byrd had initially declined a request from The Sun Herald . On Tuesday, he gave the newspaper some records, including how his department has spent drug-forfeiture money in 2013. The flight records show the helicopters have been used 39 times since April 2011. The sheriff’s department has two helicopters, both military surplus. Money needed to secure the helicopters, and to maintain and fly them, comes from money the sheriff’s department gets when drug dealers forfeit the possessions they buy with drug money. The first helicopter was purchased years before Byrd, now in his fourth term as sheriff, took office. Byrd got the second helicopter in 2006 using drugforfeiture money. The logs show the helicopters were used in 2012 for numerous

maintenance runs, a Coast Guard mission to search for a missing “crew member,” patrol missions in the Vancleave area, for county patrols of the rivers, for public relations at a Baptist church and to take part in the USS Mississippi convoy and commissioning. In addition, Byrd was aboard on at least 14 missions between 2011 and 2013. The sheriff flew with a pilot on a recovery operation in Ocean Springs Harbor for two drowning victims, on Memorial Day patrols and to patrol waterways. The 2013 operations, the records show, included what is referred to as a “hover practice” at Trent Lott International Airport and a public relations event at First United Methodist Church. The sheriff also provided records listing items purchased with $114,974 in drug-forfeiture money in 2013. Among them were: ■ $13,924 on vehicle repairs, to paint and decal eight new patrol cars, and for a Bimini top for a patrol boat. ■ $59,718 on four vehicles — a 2012 Chevy Tahoe K-9 unit, a 2007 and two 2008 Crown Vic-

Freelance reporters train in combat zone first aid NEW YORK — In an era when news organizations are shutting foreign bureaus to cut costs, more of the dangerous work of reporting from the world’s trouble spots is falling to freelancers, who often must fend for themselves to get the story out and get out alive. Preparing freelancers for the danger of reporting from such places as Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria is the goal of a four-day first-aid training session where reporters working on their own learn to treat their injuries and take care of their colleagues in combat-like conditions. The free training provided by Reporters Instructed in Saving Colleagues, with simulated explosions and gunfire, is vital because much of the front-line reporting today is done by freelancers who often work without the protective resources of major news organizations, said Sebastian Junger, a former war reporter and author who founded the organization. Covering such stories is “a great opportunity for freelancers,” said Junger, best known as the author of “The Perfect Storm.” ‘‘But the risk is that they’re not prepared; they’re not trained, and they go into these very volatile situations without the skills that they need.” On a recent sweltering day at RISC’s South Bronx facility, freelance reporter Danny Gold put his training into practice under conditions designed for maximum chaos. With sweat dripping down his face, and screams and explosions ringing out around him, he quickly pulled a tourniquet from his pack and wrapped it tightly around the leg of the limp victim in front of him. “Journalists face a very unique challenge,” said Sawyer Alberi, a flight medic with tours in Iraq and Afghanistan who runs the RISC training. “When I’m in wartime, I have a whole military behind me and it doesn’t scare me nearly as much to be there. But while

journalists are there and they’re trying to focus on taking pictures, getting the truth and getting a story, the journalists are really in danger.” According to the Committee to Protect Journalists, recent years have seen record levels of journalists dying from civil unrest and combat situations. Last year 71 journalists were killed in the line of duty, making it the second deadliest year for journalists on record. Of those deaths, 26 were in combat situations. Additionally, out of 141 journalists killed since 2010, 43 were freelancers. In 2011, about a third of all journalists killed were freelancers. That’s more than twice the average, according to CPJ, which has been keeping detailed records since 1992. “Freelancers are the ones that are taking the risks without much backup,” said Frank Smyth, CPJ’s senior adviser for journalist security. “That changes the game for them. And they have to take care of themselves in a way, even more so than they ever had to do before.” Unlike more traditional hostile environment trainings — which anticipate kidnappings, information security, sexual assault and other challenges — RISC training focuses on basic combat first aid: how to apply a tourniquet, stabilize a fracture or pack a wound. So far, the group has trained 96 journalists. Freelancers often work without any real guarantee of support. Some will deploy as stringers, with an arrangement to report for an organization on a per-story basis, and large outlets have sometimes come to their aid when a serious threat emerged. Others take the more fraught route of working what’s known as on spec, or without any specific agreement.  

Southern California mountain wildfire grows IDYLLWILD, Calif. — Firefighters braced Wednesday for an intense day battling a wildfire in the mountains southwest of Palm

662-284-9099

BILOXI — Courtney Nixon Murray figured her SUV was gone for good after it was stolen from her home Tuesday. Then she spotted it at a red light at Mississippi Highway 67 as she and her sister were headed to a movie. Murray tells the Sun Herald that she recognized her 2004 Cadillac Escalade from the dent in the driver-side door and the Grateful Dead decal on the back. The sisters followed and Murray relayed information to authorities about where the SUV was. The chase ended when the SUV slid into a median. Authorities say the driver and five passengers, all under 18, were arrested. Murray says she learned two lessons — always trust in God to provide and never leave the doors unlocked with a spare key in the console.

Springs that already has burned seven homes and led to the evacuation of dozens more as well as a camp serving children with cancer. Temperatures were expected to soar as high as 105 in the area and humidity was critically low, possibly dipping as low as 1 percent by the afternoon, said Tina Rose, a spokesman for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. “I was here at sun-up and the fire was burning like it was 3 o’clock in the afternoon. That is extreme fire behavior,” Rose said, adding that the area had not burned in many years. “The slightest little spark is going to make a run and torch trees. It’s just so bone dry.” The blaze destroyed three houses, damaged another and destroyed three mobile homes, a cabin, a garage and about a half-dozen vehicles, the U.S. Forest Service said in a statement Tuesday. Eleven outbuildings, five commercial buildings and several smaller structures also have been lost. The wildfire started Monday between Palm Springs and Hemet, near the rural Riverside County community of Mountain Center and grew to more than 22 square miles by Wednesday morning. It was burning in thick brush and trees at an elevation of 5,000 to 7,500 feet. More than 2,200 firefighters and 25 aircraft had the blaze about 10 percent contained. It was mostly moving east toward the desert and away from small communities of homes, summer cabins and ranches in the San Jacinto Mountains. Most of the damage occurred late Monday and early Tuesday as the fire more than doubled in size, but it was not assessed until later in the day. About 50 homes were evacuated along with Camp Ronald McDonald, which hosts programs for children with cancer and their families. The fire also led authorities to close a pair of state highways and the Pacific Crest Trail. One of the highways reopened Wednesday.

Raccoons, heat, home sickness prevail on camping trip TISHOMINGO — There was a line I always used when talking to parents who might be pushing their kids into activities in which they don’t want to participate. A Ramer Dixie Youth baseball coach approached me years ago and asked out of the blue with no introduction, “Are your boys gonna play baseball?” I thought for a second and responded, “Not sure. Have you asked them?” I was relatively new to the community and apparently nobody had informed me that’s what boys do in this area after school is out for the summer. They swing bats, eat sunflower seeds, swing bats, throw strikes and learn dugout chants. I learned. This father caught on very quickly of those things deemed important, but I had made my point. I would tell my two boys — now grown, still athletic and successful at many things besides baseball —

they didn’t have to play baseball, but they may want to give it a try. Mark Wind the Boehler clock forward and Sidetracks I’m wondering if activities with my grandson are what we want to do, or am I living my life vicariously through a nine-yearold? Am I practicing what I used to preach? Throwing the football, sharing lame jokes, model railroading or tent camping -- is this my wish list? Gregory has a very tender heart and I think he sometimes tells me what I want to hear to please me rather than the honest truth. Take for example a recent vacation to camp for a week in a tent at Tishomingo State Park. It was planned, discussed and anticipation built for months. Poppy and Gregory —

just the two of us. Camping, cooking, campfires, bicycle rides, swimming, canoe trip, hiking, story telling and disc golf were on the agenda. “Poppy, I have no cell service,” my grandson told me upon arrival. I was excited. That’s what I call camping -- a disconnect from the real world, if only for a week. Ole Poppy was concerned a week may be too long for his little tag-along, as previous camping excursions were just the weekend or the tent pitched in the yard at home. What a great time we were having when we both decided we wanted to experience canoes, trails and the pool by day, but sleep in our own beds at night. Before this hint of home sickness hit us, events turned rather comical. Raccoons began to rob us blind, somehow getting into food boxes with the lid still shut tight. We named one particular midnight bandit “Harry

Houdini” for his trickery. After securing all food inside the SUV, one night I decided to investigate to see what the critters were doing as the racket was as if someone was carrying pots and pans into the woods. It was “Houdini,” that darn coon. Items were knocked over, spilled onto the ground and Coleman camping storage container violated and ransacked. I had failed to put up one six-pack of boxed Juicy Juice. I witnessed a raccoon go up a nearby cedar tree, perch on a limb, chew a whole into the top of a Juicy Juice box and then proceed to down the orange flavored drink. I took our favorite Peyton Manning youth football and tossed it at the animal. Why, I have no idea. I’m no Peyton Manning, so all my errant throw did was tick off the little beast. It returned the next night to inflict more damage on our campsite, apparently very fond of Juicy

Juice. We have since reflected on this night of terror in humor, as Poppy had failed to dress when he left the tent to battle the raccoons. When I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter, I had tore open the tent shutters and threw up the sleeping bag sash. The full moon on the breast of the horizon gave a luster of this huge midnight object below. It was Poppy standing there in nothing but his Haynes gray boxer briefs. I laughed in spite of myself. A grown man in his underwear, throwing a football at a raccoon drinking a box of Juicy Juice — a scene so hilarious I can’t be making it up. It gets better. As I left the tent to go into battle with the campground thieves, not only did Gregory not warn me I might want to slip on my shorts and T-shirt, he had other concerns. My grandson wasn’t concerned about his Pop-

py being mauled by a raccoon. Oh no. He asked me to please shut the tent door upon my exit and please retrieve his cell phone he had left on the picnic table. Apparently, even a nineyear-old has his cell phone priorities, service or not. We laugh now as we reflect on the night of bandits. A memory has been built. This dynamic camping duo broke camp three days early when the temperature hit 98 degrees with a heat index of 115, but that’s another Opry Show. Grandson and grandfather now have a mutual understanding. Camping trips in the future will be weekend only. And Gregory will decide when — and if — he’s ready to go again.

Several movies worth seeing Learning how to adapt to change in the upcoming months This seems like a good time to take a brief look at movies coming to a nearby theater in the next 14 weeks. I choose just a few of the coming attractions. Hopefully, some of the movies mentioned will inspire readers. Personally, I would like to see all of these. I chose films I think will be interesting and entertaining, some more than others. Terry Overall, I Burns think the list below Movie Critic will be worth the drive — and the money. ■ “Red 2” — Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren and Anthony Hopkins. The exoperatives are back with humor and apparently lots of action. It should be worth the time spent in a dark cool theater. ■ “Blue Jasmine” — Director Woody Allen with Cate Blanchet, Peter Sarsgaard and Alec Baldwin. The trailer looks promising about starting a new life in California with humor and drama. ■ “2 Guns” — Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington; comedy/ action film. These two very talented actors should bring entertainment to the forefront. ■ “Elysium” — Matt Damon and Jodie Foster. A sci-fi movie about the rich and the not so rich. Matt Damon leads the way to right wrongs, along with putting things into perspective for everyone. ■ “Paranoia” — Harrison Ford, Liam Hemsworth, Amber Heard and Gary Oldman. The film is based on the book by Joseph Finder. Read the book, then see the movie about a young man with a blue collar background taking care of his father. He has a weak spot for

Terry Burns’ movie ratings The Lone Ranger, PG-13 ***** The Heat, R, ***1⁄2 World War Z, PG-13, ***1⁄2 Man of Steel, PG-13, **1⁄2 Now You See Me, PG-13, ***1⁄2 employees which gets him in trouble with the big boys. He ends up getting involved with corporate espionage to keep from going to jail. ■ “The Butler” — John Cusack and Forest Whitaker. The film is based on the story of Cecil Gaines, who served eight years as the White House’s lead butler from 1952-1986. It should be a very interesting and historical piece. ■ “Jobs” — The story of Steve Jobs, a college dropout who became an entrepreneur for Apple Computers. As if anyone on the planet did not already know this. I am looking forward to this one also. ■ “Getaway” — Ethan Hawke, Selena Gomez and Jon Voight. Brent Magna (Ethan Hawke) must get behind the wheel and take orders from someone on the phone while he is driving. His wife has been kidnapped, and the individual on the phone keeps Magna engaged in some very dangerous driving maneuvers. ■ “Closed Circuit” — Lawyers and ex-lovers defend a terrorist during a trial. ■ “Salinger” — A documentary about recluse author J.D. Salinger ,who wrote “The Catcher in the Rye.” ■ “Rush” — Director Ron Howard. I have always been a Grand Prix racing fan. This film is a true story about Niki Lauda and Peter Hunt fighting for the Grand Prix championship. Lauda was in a horrible accident on the track and returned to racing a little over a month after the accident. Hunt was Lau-

Jones graduates basic training Air Force Airman Matthew T. Jones graduated from basic military training at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, San Antonio, Texas. The airman completed an intensive, eight-week program that included training in military discipline and studies, Air Force core values, physical fitness, and basic warfare principles and skills. Airmen who complete basic training earn four credits toward an associate Jones in applied science degree through the Community College of the Air Force.

da’s rival. Hunt was also a playboy and known for his escapades on and off the track while Lauda was more subdued off the track. Take a look at a sport where cars do not just turn left. but curve to the right and to the left at extremely fast speeds. ■ “Runner Runner” — Ben Affleck, Justin Timberlake and Genna Artston. A college kid gets involved with online gambling involving an offshore business. ■ “The Fifth Estate” — Julian Assange and Daniel Domscheit-Berg. I love what the Internet can do for learning and education while keeping us informed instantly, but not the horrors it can cause from gibberish or wrong doings. This film is about the clash between WikiLeaks founder Assange and colleague Domscheit-Berg. ■ “Oldboy” — Josh Brolin, Samuel Jackson and Elizabeth Olson. An advertising agent is held hostage for 20 years. When he was captured he had a wife and a child along with a good job. Once set free, he begins his revenge. The film is a remake of a Japanese film by the same name. ■ “The Counselor” — Writer Cormac McCarthy. Think “No Country for Old Men.” This movie even has Javier Bardem in it along with Brad Pitt and Michael Fasssenbender.

The only constant in life is change. Yet change can be unsettling, especially when it is unwanted. Predictability and consistency provide a certain amount of comfort. Change often carries the prospect of having to deal with the unknown. Knowing how to adapt to change is an essential skill that will serve you for a lifetime. There’s no point to resisting change because you can’t prevent it. People who try doing so get extremely frustrated. Attempting to resist change is as effective as seeking to stop the waves in the ocean. You are better off learning to surf on the waves rather than being constantly tossed around by them. Here are some tips to help you adapt to change. Go ahead and use them, especially if you have trouble adapting to change. Start by accepting change. You may not like it or want it, but it happens. Denying change doesn’t make it go away. Hiding from it doesn’t work either. Recognize it for what it is. Life goes forward and you must adapt to change. When faced with change, don’t act or think like a victim. Complaining about unfairness or whining about why things always happen to you is counter productive. Although you may not have any control over the source of the change, you do have control over your response. Don’t lament the past or it will pollute your future. Getting caught up with what you would have, should have, or could have done differently, wastes your time. Any feelings of anger, resentment, or bitterness will impede your ability to adapt to change. Your attention should be on where you want to go from here. Resist reacting impulsively to change. Before taking any action, stop and think. Determine what’s causing the change. Is the change the result of decisions you made or is it out of your control? Under-

standing the source of change helps you formulate an appropriate reBryan sponse. Golden Next, list all possible Dare to Live Without Limits o p t i o n s without evaluating any of them. Brainstorming in this fashion will give you many more choices than if you judge them first. Reviewing a big list will help you generate even more ideas. Knowing your likes and dislikes will assist in picking the most appropriate course of action. Without this insight, you are more likely to make dissatisfactory choices. Your decisions should be based on what you want to accomplish, rather than what others expect of you. While assessing your various options, keep your mind open. Let your mind dream about ideal solutions. More things are possible than you realize. Look for hidden opportunities. Change can alter your perspective. Change reveals prospects you may not have previously considered. The old adage, “when one door closes another opens,” has a lot of validity. When faced with

change, assess each option based on your requirements. Don’t let the opinions of others taint your evaluation process. Be flexible. Let go of preconceived notions. Adapting to change requires a fresh perspective. Your priorities may have to be rearranged. Be willing to alter your course as needed. When the change is significant, concentrate on one day at a time and one step at a time. There are occasions where it’s not possible to see very far down your road. That’s OK. As you move forward your vision will become clearer. With each step forward, more comes into focus. Life is fluid and filled with surprises. Learning to become more adept at adapting to change is a worthwhile endeavor. You can even get to the point where you welcome change as an opportunity to grow. Adapting to change is essential to accomplishing your goals. (Daily Corinthian columnist Bryan Golden is a management consultant, motivational speaker, author, and adjunct professor.

“One Man’s Trash Is Another Man’s Treasure.” The scene was early 1500’s Europe, around the time Martin Luther was sending his translation of the Bible to the printing presses. It’s in this period of Europe when a young typesetter’s daughter was playing in her father’s shop. As she played, she came across a crumbled up piece of paper that had the words, “for God so loved the world that He gave”. No ending was given, no conclusion, no completion of the thought. The sentence simply was not finished. The sentence was not finished, but what was said changed this little girl. With little knowledge of God, or of His Word, she had grown up terribly afraid of God. Yet, there she stood, holding the words that made that fear seem... unnecessary. Suddenly, she felt an ease come over her in regards to God. The little girl stuck that piece of paper in her pocket and ran home. When she arrived, she pulled the paper out of her pocket and showed her mother. Her mother-like her daughter- had very little knowledge of God or His word. However, the mother read the words anyway. “For God so loved the world that He gave” Again, no completion of thought was given. No ending to the sentence. No ending to this sentence left the mother baffled. Confused, she asked her daughter, “Well? What was it that He gave?” The daughter simply smiled at her mother and replied, “I don’t know, but whatever it was, it must’ve been wonderful, because He loves us.” How much simpler can you make the Gospel message? The entire life changing Gospel message was summed up for this little girl, found on a piece of paper that had been crumbled up and discarded by her typesetter father. Where he surely read a mistake or a typo, she read a message of hope and love. And she was changed forever by it. The fact of the matter is that God doesn’t have to give us anything. However, He loves us so much that He gave the most precious gift that any parent could ever dream of parting with-His beloved Son. I wonder what the mother would have thought if she had been able to read the rest of John 3:16? “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not parish but have everlasting life.” I suppose I’ll never really know the answer to that question, though I can speculate that, being a parent herself, the significance of what was given would not have been lost on her. What I do know though is two things: 1) The act of carrying home another person’s trash has been happening for hundreds of years, and; 2) Sometimes, one persons trash truly can be a treasure. A treasure that has the power to change lives.

The Microsoft shuffle Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer is restructuring the company to enable it to better keep pace with changes in technology. The rapid adoption of mobile devices running software made by Apple and Google has left the maker of Windows software a step behind its biggest rivals. The company’s new set up focuses on software and devices, and services connecting those devices to applications stored in remote data centers — a concept known as “cloud computing.� In a conference call last week, Ballmer conveyed that he’s hoping a more closely knit organization making the software and services that run smartphones, tablets, the Xbox video game console

and PCs will help re-establish Microsoft’s reputation as a market leader. Microsoft is one of the top performers in the Dow Jones industrial average this year with a 34 percent rise, compared with the 18 percent climb of the Dow. The stock has surged, partly because revenue is holding up better than many financial analysts expected, despite five consecutive quarters of declining PC sales. In a move to stay competitive, Microsoft cut the price of its Surface RT tablet by $150 Sunday. In the first quarter of this year, Microsoft was the sixth largest tablet manufacturer with 2 percent of worldwide shipments. By comparison, Apple topped the list with 39 percent of the market, according to research firm IDC.

Internet heavyweight Google’s latest quarterly earnings are likely to determine whether its stock extends a recent surge. The company, whose stock has been creeping close to $1,000 per share, has been making more money by maintaining its dominance of Internet search and online advertising while plumbing opportunities in the mobile-device market. Google is due to report second-quarter earnings today.

Coming Up In The Daily Corinthian Brock Thompson loves history. He is a World War II re-enactor and attended the recent re-enactment of the Civil War Battle of Gettysburg. Read Brant Sappington’s story coming Sunday.

Mom resists risking good money on son’s bad credit DEAR ABBY: We have a grown son who is married with his own family and home. He and his wife have jobs. My husband and I are semiretired — not rich, but we live comfortably. Our credit score is great. My son wants us to co-sign a loan for him. I know his credit is not good because I get phone calls from collection agents looking for him. We really don’t want to co-sign. How do I explain this to him? I feel that because I’m his mother it obligates me. I am also afraid he will stop letting us see the grandkids if I refuse. — SCARED OF THE DOTTED LINE DEAR SCARED: Since debt collectors are calling because your son isn’t paying his bills, do not co-sign for a loan for him! If you do, you could wind up having to pay it off yourselves. Your son is an adult. That you are his mother does not obligate you to assume responsibility in case he doesn’t pay his bills. If he retaliates by not allowing you to see the grandkids, so be it. If you knuckle under to emotional blackmail, it won’t stop, and it could affect your standard of living for the rest of your lives. DEAR ABBY: I’m in high school and my daddy just passed away. I want to know why I have so much anger and hurt about this. I feel like he never

got to see me reach any of my goals in life. The main goal was to see my graduation. What is the best way I Abigail can get my Van Buren mind off this? — YOUNG Dear Abby GIRL IN ALABAMA D E A R YOUNG GIRL: I am sorry for your loss, which is a particularly difficult one at your age. It’s important that you understand the feelings you are experiencing are normal. Anger is a part of the grieving process, and it may take some time for you to get beyond it. The best way to “get your mind off this” would be to find a safe place to talk about it. A grief support group would be helpful. Your clergyperson could help you find one and so could your family doctor. DEAR ABBY: I am writing regarding the letter from “Appreciative in Hitchcock, Texas” (June 17) about the importance of sending thank-you notes. Maybe this will help others: When our three children were young, we had a “note rule.” When they received a present, they had five days to write the

note. If written within two days, the note only had to be three lines long. On the third day, it was four lines. On the fourth day, five lines. On the fifth day — the gift went to charity! None of them ever complained about doing their notes, and it became a habit while growing up. We were proud of each of them when their wedding thankyous were out within a week! — STRICT PARENTS IN ST. LOUIS DEAR STRICT PARENTS: Good for you! You taught your children that there were consequences for shirking responsibility. That’s an important lesson because the same is true when they become adults. DEAR ABBY: I was wondering, do you ever read a letter and say to yourself, “If this is all you have to worry about, you’re lucky”? — JEFF IN FORT MCCOY, FLA. DEAR JEFF: No. I have more respect for my readers than that. However, many people have written me to say that after reading the letters that appear in my column, they felt lucky! (Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.)

Horoscopes ARIES (March 21-April 19). Work or school might feel like an albatross around your neck, but don’t despair: An unexpected encounter will remind you that you have wings of your own, and you’re just waiting for the right moment to take flight. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If you’ve ever actually sung the blues, you know how the things that make you sad can be the very same things that lift your spirits once expressed. Try it. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your network of far-flung friends and relations maybe doesn’t feel exactly like a net, but rather more like an exhausting trap of obligations and duties. Let everyone know that you’re taking a well-deserved break. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You don’t need to have a thrilling time to have a good time. You’ll be more reasonable than your friends in this regard. You have a charming way of projecting the voice of reason.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You hate to feel indebted to people. You’ll return favors, give gratitude and contribute big. But there’s a sense that you can’t get even with some people who always want to give you more. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You strive for a pure heart, clear mind and devout soul. It doesn’t always work out that way. On the bright side, vice in moderation can be a bonding agent between people. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Pleasant surprises are still surprises, and today you’re just not in the mood to be startled in any way. Luckily, you will be able to control your environment to a large degree. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Good fortune is the result of good planning. Of course, for a plan to work, you have to follow it, which you will with a few exceptions. Today you’re the perfect mix of being structured and in the moment.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When it comes to the daily dance of juggling work and family, you’ve often felt as if you have two left feet and a bad case of vertigo. But others only see how well you can spin those plates without dropping them. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Older people tend to project an illusion of happiness onto younger people who may or may not feel that way. This moon helps you tune in to the truth of the matter, though, and reach out as needed. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You love mischievous and playful people, but not dishonest people. The distinctions can get a bit murky. Don’t be afraid to clear them up, though, and sooner rather than later. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Even when you are not among your true friends, you can still be yourself. In fact, that’s the best person to be to attract new true and sincere friends.

Top Selling Jerseys

Adam Jones, Baltimore The All-Star center fielder hit .400 last week with four multi-hit games. He scored eight runs with a 1.323 OPS and homered in each of the three weekend games against Toronto with six RBIs.

Chris Archer, Tampa Bay The Rays’ young righthander produced two outstanding outings last week. Through six innings against Minnesota, he allowed just one unearned run, then followed that with a fivehit shutout of Houston, with no walks in either contest.

Buster Posey, San Francisco The Giants’ backstop began the week with a 5-for-8 performance in San Francisco’s 16inning marathon with the Mets. He ended the week with nine hits over five games for a .483 average and 1.191 OPS. He drove in five in one game, then scored three in the next.

• The St. Louis Cardinals have been outstanding in many ways this season, but haven’t been able to completely translate statistical dominance into winning percentage dominance. The Redbirds ended the first half with a +127 run differential, easily the best in the majors. Only three other teams in the majors have a run differential more than half that of St. Louis (Boston +91, Detroit +89 and Atlanta +78). • It may be difficult for some fans to believe, but the Los Angeles Dodgers are clearly in the pennant race in the National League West. Just a couple of months ago, this team with a payroll bulging to more than $200 million, was mired in last place with a 13-21 record on May 10. With talk of when — not if — manager Don Mattingly would be fired, the Dodgers improved only slightly over the next month to 3042 on June 21. Still underachieving, still in last place. But since then, the Dodgers have won 17 of 22 games to climb to an even .500 at the All-Star break with increasing confidence. While the arrival of rookie Yasiel Puig on June 3 doesn’t exactly coincide with the Dodgers’ surge, the young Cuban outfielder has been a major key to the success. The Dodgers are 2313 when Puig starts. Los Angeles is on the heels of the NL West-leading Diamondbacks, just 2.5 games behind. It’s a good thing that the Dodgers’ brass didn’t overreact too quickly and make Mattingly the scapegoat in May. • Since Interleague play began in 1997, no team has dominated another across league lines like the Oakland A’s have owned the Pittsburgh Pirates. The teams have rarely met, but when they got together prior to this season, it was all Oakland. The A’s swept three-game series in 2002, 2004 and 2010 before taking the first two of the three-game set this year. But lefthander Francisco Liriano helped the Pirates break the string by leading Pittsburgh to a 5-0 win on July 10, giving the Pirates a 1-11 record against the A’s.

Noah Syndergaard, New York Mets The 20-year-old pitcher would love to join a rotation of Matt Harvey, Zack Wheeler and Jeremy Hefner in a few years in New York, and the Mets believe he’s on the right track for stardom. Acquired in the R. A. Dickey trade over the winter, Syndergaard made 12 starts at High-A St. Lucie before being promoted to Double-A Binghamton recently. Over his first 20 innings at the Double-A level, he’s allowed just three earned runs.

July 19, 1910 At age 43, Denton True (Cy) Young wins the 500th game of his career while pitching for the Cleveland Naps. Over a 17-year span, Young averaged 372 innings per season, leading the league only twice. Young also averaged 26 wins per season during that time, but led the league in wins just five times during that stretch. July 19, 1927 Playing the Philadelphia A’s at age 40, Ty Cobb blasts a double for hit No. 4,000 of his career. It would take almost 60 years before another player reached the milestone. Pete Rose, then of the Montreal Expos, got hit No. 4,000 in 1984.

Maintain the best record in baseball through the first half. Finished 5-5 on recent 10-game West Coast trip. Have allowed the fewest runs in the American League. Given up more than four runs just once in last 17 games. Most home wins in the majors, below .500 on the road. First team to beat Max Scherzer this season. Justin Upton back on a hot streak. MVP3: Chris Davis, Manny Machado, Adam Jones. Getting little production from bottom of the order. Pitching has been shaky of late. Jason Kipnis is Cleveland’s newest young star. Paul Goldschmidt continues to carry the Arizona offense. Only nine extra-base hits in seven games last week. Could be extremely active once again at trade deadline. Lost 12 of 19 games vs. NL East. At 24-14, Phils have best record vs. NL East. Troy Tulowitzki back in lineup is welcome sight. Haven’t won two in a row since June 23. Topped the majors with 51 runs and .505 slugging last week. Tim Lincecum went 74 starts between shutouts. Won a respectable 17 of their last 30. Disappointing sweep by Seattle. Open second half with Detroit and Baltimore. Still saveless in July. Won six of last nine, all on the road. Two six-game losing streaks since June 30. One of the teams anxiously awaiting possible PED suspensions. Played 34 innings in two days at Philadelphia. Logan Morrison lone recent bright spot in lineup. Chris Carter, leading team in HRs and RBIs, may be traded soon.

Second Half Preview

With the first three months of the season in the rearview mirror, it’s time to explore what’s in store for the second half. Who are the contenders? What players will step up?

AL EAST The two surprises of the first half were how well the Red Sox rebounded from last season’s debacle, and how much the Blue Jays struggled, especially with their pitching. One thing we learned is that the Yankees are old and fragile, without a strong support system at the minor league level. New York fans are not accustomed to watching a pennant race without the pinstripes, but the Yankees will likely sit this one out. There are still 86 games to be played just within this historically tough division. So, the title will be decided in head-to-head matchups. With David Price healthy and in Cy Young form, and Matt Moore continuing to pitch well, the Rays certainly have a strong run in them. Many experts thought — myself included — that Baltimore used up its allotment of luck last season and would come back down to earth. Not so. The Orioles are not dominating one-run games and extra innings like they did last season, but they’re winning every other kind of game. Crystal Ball: Baltimore and Tampa Bay will be the strongest teams down the stretch and overtake the Red Sox. The clutch Rays will find a way to slip past Baltimore at the end. AL CENTRAL It seems this is at least the second verse of the Tigers-should-be-running-away song. Jim Leyland knows what he’s doing, and he’s confident the Tigers will be ready in September and October. But getting the back of the rotation and bullpen sorted out would make Detroit fans much more comfortable. I like the direction of

Division leaders at the All-Star break have no guarantees that the second half will be as friendly as the first half. Expect the Rays, led by rookie Wil Myers (left), and the Nationals with star Bryce Harper, to take over first place over the next three months.

Cleveland and Kansas City, but I don’t see either team with enough firepower to challenge the Tigers in 2013. Crystal Ball: This remains the Tigers’ division. The Indians will outlast the Royals for second but will not charge into the wild card race. AL WEST When you look at the Texas and Oakland rosters side-by-side, it’s difficult to see just how the A’s are competing with the Rangers. But somehow they are, and we don’t see them going away. No other race would be affected as strongly by the Biogenesis fallout as the AL West. If Nelson Cruz of the Rangers and Bartolo Colon of the A’s face suspension, both teams must scramble to fill holes. Crystal Ball: Texas will edge the A’s, but Oakland is my pick to host the play-in game against the Orioles. NL EAST The Braves have dominated this di-

vision since the opening bell, and that may continue for another month or so. But the Nationals still have a charge in them this summer. The interesting question will be if the Phillies believe they are contenders and hold on to their tradable players like Cliff Lee, Michael Young and Chase Utley. I think they should seek trades, but it will be difficult to find a team willing to take on Lee and the $62.5 million still owed the lefty. Crystal Ball: With a fresher and more stable starting rotation, the Nats will overtake the Braves around the third week in September, leaving the Braves at home in October. NL CENTRAL Who would have believed that the three best records in the league could come from this division? Cincinnati probably won’t finish with the third-best record but will easily be in the wild-card hunt. The Cardinals have the horses to win this division but also have more injury

risks than their rivals in Ohio and Pennsylvania. Crystal Ball: St. Louis will win the NL Central with the best record in the league. Pittsburgh will host Cincinnati in the wild card game. The Cubs will complete the most trades in July. NL WEST This is truly the wild, wild West. There are no great teams, maybe not even any very good teams, but with the exception of San Diego, every team will be in the race in September. The Dodgers are beginning to jell and Yasiel Puig has given the team a badly needed spark. The seven games between the Dodgers and Diamondbacks in September will decide the race. Crystal Ball: The Giants will never quite put it all together, and Colorado’s pitching will fade, leaving Arizona and Los Angeles to duke it out. The Dodgers will win by two games and earn Don Mattingly some Manager of the Year votes.

Batting average with runners in scoring position and two outs this season for Allen Craig of St. Louis. The highest average in any one season in the 2000s with a minimum of 60 plate appearances is .472 by Ichiro Suzuki with Seattle in 2004. At .475, Miguel Cabrera of Detroit also has a chance to top Ichiro’s mark this season. Players in history with 30 home runs and 90 RBIs prior to the All-Star break. Both Chris Davis of Baltimore and the Tigers’ Miguel Cabrera accomplished that this season. Complete games by the Tampa Bay Rays’ pitching staff last week, more than 18 teams have all season. Games played by the Milwaukee Brewers — including 11 in the postseason — between complete games by one of their pitchers. Wily Peralta notched the first complete game of his career and the first for the Brewers since Yovani Gallardo tossed a two-hit shutout of the Braves on April 5, 2011. The game was also the first that Peralta’s mom, Miledy Peralta, saw her son pitch in person as a professional. Batting average for the San Francisco Giants off the Mets’ Zack Wheeler during New York’s 7-1 win over the Giants last week. San Francisco traded Wheeler to the Mets in 2010 at the trade deadline for Carlos Beltran, who left the Giants after that season as a free agent. Athlon Sports

Heading into the 2013 All-Star Game, do you know the current active player who has the most plate appearances in AllStar Games? And do you know the active pitcher who has logged the most All-Star innings? TRIVIA ANSWER: Ichiro Suzuki has gone to bat 28 times in the All-Star Game, one more than both Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter. Mariano Rivera leads all active pitchers with 8.0 innings, three more than Mark Buehrle, Dan Haren and Joe Nathan.

Zack Greinke, Los Angeles San Francisco’s Tim Lincecum was certainly masterful in his no-hitter against San Diego, but Greinke had two superb starts last week against division rivals. He logged seven shutout innings at Arizona and tossed a complete game shutout vs. Colorado.

A’s are alone atop AL West at All-Star break BY JANIE MCCAULEY Associated Press 

OAKLAND, Calif. — The Oakland Athletics are hardly accustomed to playing in first place at the All-Star break. Yet the top spot seems to fit them just fine at the moment — even if it's quite a change for the low-budget club long known for those secondhalf surges that make for a dramatic September. The A's are all alone atop the AL West at the break for the first time since 1990. And that's saying something for the defending division champions, who last June 30 trailed the Texas Rangers by 13 games before rallying to capture the West crown on the season's final day. It didn't hurt for momentum that outfielder Yoenis Cespedes won the Home Run Derby during All-Star festivities Monday in New York. At 56-39, the A's are

making another statement after surprising everybody with a stunning sweep of the Rangers to end the 2012 regular season and steal away the AL West title from Texas. “I really believe that the guys in this clubhouse really believe that we have one of the best teams in baseball,” third baseman Josh Donaldson said. “It's just one of those things, where when we get an opportunity to play a good team like the Red Sox or the Pirates or the Cardinals, we're out there sending a message that we are a good team, that we're for real.” Cespedes has continued to make strides in his second major league season, and perhaps winning the Derby will help propel him into the second half. The second-year slugger from Cuba has 15 home runs and 43 RBIs. And Oakland announced Wednesday it would open the gates an hour earlier to

fans for remaining Friday home games so they can watch Cespedes and others take batting practice. “He's not happy about his average right now but his production's still there for a guy who's hitting (.225),” manager Bob Melvin said. “He's always on the verge of a hot streak.” Oakland has seven wins in 10 extra-inning games, and six walkoff victories already after 14 last season led the majors. The A's also have their first winning first half since 2008 — with plans on making another run at an underdog division title. “Everything's rolling pretty well,” Donaldson said. “We've got a lot of guys in the lineup that can do some damage, not only just hitting home runs but getting on base. ... From 1 to 25, we feel like we can put anybody in the game and they're going to be successful.” Who would have

thought Angels stars Albert Pujols, Josh Hamilton and Co. would sit a surprising 11 games back at this stage? The A's lead Texas by two games. “They've got a pretty good team to work with, too,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said. “It was very impressive what they did last year, because I don't think they envisioned they'd make the playoffs. At the beginning it was kind of like, 'Do the best you can and we'll worry about the future later.' I don't think BoMel (Melvin) got into that, because you can't have that attitude as a manager, because that transfers to your players.” General manager Billy Beane did acknowledge his club was in rebuilding mode, so the A's overachieved. They lost in the deciding Game 5 of the AL division series to the Tigers, who went on to be swept by the San Fran-

cisco Giants in the World Series. Melvin has done an admirable job mixing and matching to cope with injuries to key players such as center fielder Coco Crisp. Oakland's substitutes have done their share. “It shows that there are 25 guys in this room that, when used properly, can compete and win games,” said Nate Freiman, who singled home the winning run against Mariano Rivera in an 18-inning win over the Yankees last month. “And it shows that the guys making the decisions are good at making the decisions and they know how best to use guys.” Donaldson's steady bat is a key reason the A's are in the lead. He is hitting a team-best .310 with 16 home runs and 61 RBIs and 107 hits, most in the first half by an A's player since Carney Lansford's 118 in 1988.

Donaldson is the first A's player to bat at least .300 with 15 or more home runs before the break since Jason Giambi in 2001. Donaldson didn't make the AL All-Star team, with closer Grant Balfour the lone representative in place of 40-year-old, 12-game winner Bartolo Colon. These young, unselfish A's are accustomed to being snubbed, and certainly don't mind the role of overlooked opponent. Though that image might be wearing off in a hurry if they keep this good thing going. Along with Donaldson, Brandon Moss also has 16 home runs. “It's fun to watch our lineup hit,” lefty starter Tommy Milone said. “There's no easy out. That makes it tough, especially for other pitchers. It's good for us because we go out there and feel comfortable with any lineup that we put out there.”

HOOVER, Ala.— Coach Dan Mullen and quarterback Tyler Russell have both been at Mississippi State for five seasons. The duo hopes that experience can help lead the Bulldogs back to a bowl game for a fourth straight season and contend for a Southeastern Conference Western Division title. Mullen said on Wednesday at SEC Media Days that the seasoned Russell “understands what has to get accomplished” for the Bulldogs to meet their goal of making the SEC championship game.

“When Tyler walks into the huddle to speak, stands up in front of them, everyone is going to listen to exactly every word he says,” Mullen said. “When he understands the message and the direction as a whole that the program is going in, why we're trying to go in that direction, it certainly helps you.” The 6-foot-4, 220-pound Russell had a breakout season in 2012, throwing for 2,897 yards, 24 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. The Bulldogs appeared to have an outside shot at the SEC championship last season with a 7-0 start, but lost five of six down the stretch

against tough competition. Mullen said he hopes that experience helped his team learn how to “handle that adversity a little bit better.” The bad November and Gator Bowl loss to Northwestern represented the first real adversity of Mullen's tenure. The Bulldogs had continually improved under Mullen until that point, but now it's easy to wonder if the program can ever crack the upper echelon of the Western Division, which includes Alabama, LSU and now Texas A&M. And Auburn and Arkansas were not long ago ahead of the Bulldogs. Mississippi State also has

a much more difficult opener this season against Oklahoma State in Houston. But Russell says the Bulldogs should be ready and are ready to break through. “Going 8-5, going to a bowl game isn't good enough anymore,” Russell said. “A few years ago, you win 5 games and that was a pretty good year. Now, we've changed everything, we continually get better. Our goal is to go 7-0 (again), to continue the season undefeated and ultimately make it to the (SEC) championship. If you don't have those goals, you shouldn't really be playing football.”

Jones: Tennessee’s proud seniors take ownership BY JOHN ZENOR  Associated Press 

HOOVER, Ala. — Tennessee defensive lineman Jacques Smith's praise of his latest coach is evidence of the program's turmoil the last few years. “It has been the easiest transition out of all the coaches that we've had,” Smith said about Butch Jones's hiring. The Volunteers are hoping the latest new coach is able to stabilize and turn around a tradition-rich program. Jones is the fourth head coach since the Phillip Fulmer era ended in 2008, counting interim boss Jim Chaney last season. Jones has made a positive impression on Smith from the outset in making that smooth

transition. The Volunteers are trying to rebound from three straight losing seasons and halt skids against rivals Alabama and Florida. They're hoping the former Cincinnati coach is the guy to make it happen. “Coach Jones made a genuine introduction of himself,” Smith said Wednesday at Southeastern Conference media days. “He got off the plane, walked into the team room with his family and introduced his sons and his wife to the team. It was quite an impression that stuck with every single player.” Jones has emphasized the “brick by brick” method of rebuilding the Vols into SEC contenders.

On Wednesday, he spoke of hungry seniors and a fan base eager to beat the Gators (eight straight losses) and Crimson Tide (six). “In order for us to make those rivalry games, we have to get back to being relevant and winning those football games,” Jones said. “Obviously, those are tremendous football programs with coach (Will) Muschamp and coach (Nick) Saban. Obviously, they've done a tremendous job. “I hear that all the time. Our fan base is very prideful, so I'm reminded of that quite a bit.” Jones faces a challenging schedule in starting his turnaround job, including road trips to Oregon, Florida and

Alabama. Plus, the Vols must replace quarterback Tyler Bray and wide receivers Cordarrelle Patterson and Justin Hunter among others. Still, Smith and his fellow seniors are determined to at least put Tennessee back on the path toward SEC contention. “With the situation that we're in, winning would be the best thing ever and if we lost, it would be terrible,” Smith said. “There's no choice, we are going to win and when we do we're going to be marked as the class that changes this Tennessee program. “Expectations are high and if we're expecting high things, the outcome is going to be great.”

NCAA to stop putting name, logo on EA video game BY RALPH D. RUSSO Associated Press 

NEW YORK — Hang on to NCAA Football 2014, all you video game fans. It will be a collector's edition. The NCAA said Wednesday it will bar Electronic Arts Inc. from using its logo and name beginning next year. The move ends a lucrative, eight-year business deal with the gaming industry giant and it comes as the NCAA fights a high-profile lawsuit that says the governing body owes billions of dollars to former players for allowing their likenesses to be used for free. The NCAA said it won't seek a new contract with EA Sports, which manufactures the popular game, beyond the current one that expires in June 2014. However, that won't stop EA Sports from producing a college football video game depicting powerhouse schools such as Alabama, Ohio State and Oregon, and

the Redwood City, Calif.based company made that clear. “EA Sports will continue to develop and publish college football games, but we will no longer include the NCAA names and marks,” said Andrew Wilson, executive vice president. “Our relationship with the Collegiate Licensing Co. is strong and we are already working on a new game for next generation consoles which will launch next year and feature the college teams, conferences and all the innovation fans expect from EA Sports.” The company reported $3.8 billion in net revenue during its last fiscal year and is well known not just for its NCAA Football franchise but its Madden NFL, FIFA Soccer and other games. NCAA Football allows participants to play as any major college football team, though unlike in its professional sports games, the names of players are not used. The

similarities between the avatars in the game and actual college football players are at the root of a legal fight that could alter the way the NCAA does business in the future. The NCAA is in the midst of a long legal battle that started with a lawsuit filed by former UCLA basketball star Ed O'Bannon after he was shown a video game with an avatar playing for the Bruins that played a lot like him. The lawsuit, which also names EA and the Collegiate Licensing Company that handles trademark licensing for dozens of schools, the NCAA and various conferences, has expanded to include several former athletes who claim the NCAA and EA Sports have used their names and likenesses without compensation and demand the NCAA find a way to give players a cut of the billions of dollars earned from live broadcasts,

memorabilia sales and video games. “We are confident in our legal position regarding the use of our trademarks in video games,” the NCAA said. “But given the current business climate and costs of litigation, we determined participating in this game is not in the best interests of the NCAA. “The NCAA has never licensed the use of current student-athlete names, images or likenesses to EA. The NCAA has no involvement in licenses between EA and former student-athletes.” Still, the NCAA said its members can seek arrangements with video game manufacturers — if they wish. “Member colleges and universities license their own trademarks and other intellectual property for the video game,” the NCAA said. “They will have to independently decide whether to continue those business arrangements in the future.”

Bielema critical of hurry-up offenses BY DAVID BRANDT Associated Press

HOOVER, Ala. — Arkansas coach Bret Bielema brought some fire to Southeastern Conference Media Days on Wednesday, saying his deliberate style of play is “normal American football” and that the new trend of hurry-up offenses makes players tired and can lead to more injuries. The first-year coach, who was hired away from Wisconsin during the offseason, responded to first-year Auburn coach Gus Malzahn, who earlier in the day said that he first thought criticisms of hurry-up offenses were “a joke.” Bielema countered that he wasn't a comedian and passionately defended his position, saying college football has changed rules when trying to improve safety. “All I know is this: there are times when an offensive player and a defensive player are on the field for an extended amount of time without a break,” Bielema said. “You cannot tell me that a player after play five is the same player that he is after play 15.” When an offense is running a hurry-up, no-huddle, it makes it much more difficult for the defense to substitute. It's a tactic that is successfully used by several of the league's newer coaches, including Texas A&M's Kevin Sumlin, Mississippi's Hugh Freeze and Malzahn. Arkansas and Auburn play on Nov. 2.
