Two killed in Highway 72 crash Vehicle left the highway and struck utility pole BY BOBBY J. SMITH bjsmith@dailycorinthian.com

Rescue workers respond to the scene of the one-vehicle crash on U.S. Highway 72 that claimed the lives of two local women Wednesday afternoon.

Two Corinth women were killed on Wednesday in a one-vehicle accident on U.S. 72. Samantha J. Evetts, 20, and Phoenix Peacher, 18, both of Corinth, were pronounced dead at the scene by Coroner Jay Jones. Both attended Alcorn Central Evetts High School. The Corinth Police Department received the call on the accident at 1:44 p.m. and responded to the scene a short distance east of Lake Hill Motors on U.S. 72. Peacher Peacher was the driver of the 2002 Ford Mustang that was heading westbound on Highway 72 when the driver lost control of the car, drove down a steep embankment and hit a utility pole, according to Assistant Chief Scotty Harville. The passenger, Evetts, was ejected from the vehicle. Neither of the vehicle’s occupants was wearing a seatbelt. Personnel from the Corinth Fire Department also responded to the scene. Funeral arrangements were incomplete at press time Wednesday

Supervisors sell former manufacturing building BY JEBB JOHNSTON jjohnston@dailycorinthian.com

County supervisors agreed on Tuesday to sell an old industrial building to the town of Rienzi for use as a community-oriented property. Formerly used by Wurlitzer and King Manufacturing, the

building will be sold to the town for $1,000. Third District Supervisor Tim Mitchell said the town feels it will be advantageous to own the property when seeking grants to improve the building rather than leasing it. Board attorney Bill Davis said the county has the authority to

sell the building at a sum the county determines to be a “fair value.” The building is in declining condition and the town recently approached the county about finding a use for it. Rienzi officials have mentioned a number of possibilities for the property,

including a park, walking track, community center or town hall. In other business: ■ After difficulties with getting a couple of road projects scheduled, the board had a discussion of rescinding the current contracts for paving and chip & seal services.

■ Supervisors approved two requests for use of the courthouse grounds — a downtown block party on Sept. 29 requested by Cindy Thomas and distribution of women’s and children’s self-defense awareness information by Jay Anthony on Oct. 5-6.

Commissioners reject request BY JEFF YORK Special to the Daily Corinthian

ELMER, Tenn. — A request to put a referendum on the ballot to fund two new elementary schools was denied by the McNairy County Board of Commissioners during a special called meeting Tuesday night. The commissioners voted 12-8 to postpone the idea of putting the referendum on the November ballot. Commissioners had moved their September meeting up one week to meet the deadline required to get any measure on the ballot

for the upcoming election. McNairy’s Board of Education had asked the county commission to place a referendum on the ballot that would have used a $20 wheel tax and/ or a half-cent sales tax increase to pay for the proposed new schools in Adamsville and Selmer. McNairy County Mayor Ronnie Brooks is now planning to put together a joint meeting between commissioners and school officials. He hopes to get commissioners on the budget committee, building committee and education committee to

meet with McNairy County Director of Schools Charlie Miskelly and the school board to get an agreement between the groups. “We have some communication issues to iron out between the commissioners and the school officials,” said Brooks. “A few commissioners were unhappy with the way that information was provided them by the school board” An optimistic Brooks believes the combined meeting of commissioners and school representatives will help smooth

over unanswered questions between the two groups. “I believe everyone agrees there is a need for two elementary schools and we just have to find a way to fund them,” said Brooks. “We need to present it to the people in the county and get them enough information. Our county has always supported school building programs in the past.” If the county commission passes a resolution to support the referendum then a special election could be held in the future.

Celebrating 40 years in banking The Mississippi Bankers Association recently recognized Regions Bank associate Reta Baswell in Corinth for reaching her 40-year banking career milestone. During the celebration, Baswell, a Branch Service Leader with the bank’s Corinth main branch, was presented with a certificate by Paula Smith, Regions’ Corinth Main Branch Manager, and Becky Spence, Regions’ Shiloh Road Branch Manager.

funding. The scope of the project includes an upgrade of airfield lighting controls, replacement of the Precision Approach Path Indicator, and an update of the airport master plan. The FAA grant covers 90 percent of the project, or $222,369, and the Mississippi Department of Transportation will contribute $12,354. The grant includes $63,000 for planning with the remainder going to airport development. In July, the boards agreed to match an Airport Multi-Modal Grant that will provide for the enclosing of T-hangars to protect aircraft from the elements. In other actions this week, the Board of Su-

pervisors agreed to submit application to the Mississippi Development Authority to form an economic development pact with the city of Corinth that would allow the two to commit equal shares of matching funds on projects throughout the county. The request must be approved by MDA. The pact affects one project currently on the table — improvements to Manpower Road, which is outside the city limits, for Caterpillar’s new South Harper Road facility. Supervisors also agreed for the county to apply for a grant on behalf of Corinth Gas & Water for a gas line that would serve as a backup for Kingsford and APAC, according to the county engineering firm.

Runner-up trapshooter keeps eye on target BY BRIAN BROOM Associated Press

JACKSON — Many hunters would be happy if they could hit just one 4 1/2-inch clay disc flying through the air at 42 miles per hour. Tony Kirk of Corinth won't be satisfied until he hits 100. One hundred out of 100, to be precise. At age 10, Kirk started shooting trap with his father after going to a range at his hometown of Corinth. “I shot a round or two and was hooked from

there,” said Kirk. Now 14, Kirk accomplished in August what most trapshooters never achieve in a lifetime. Kirk won a sub-junior competition at the Grand American World Trapshooting Championships in Sparta, Ill., an event that draws thousands of the top trapshooters in the U.S. and abroad. His father was quite proud of Kirk's accomplishment. “There are people that go up there their whole life and don't come

home with a trophy,” Tony Kirk Sr. said. Kirk didn't stop there. He competed against more than 2,000 other shooters of all ages for a chance at the biggest event, the Grand American Handicap. Jim Porter with the American Trapshooters Association said the handicap system is much like a handicap in golf and the distance from which a competitor shoots is based on known ability and other factors. Shooting 99 clays out

of 100, Kirk seemed to have secured a spot in the final round of the Handicap, until someone shot a perfect 100 and left Kirk as the runner-up. How big is runner-up? According to Porter, “the accomplishment he has made is huge, nothing short of huge.” Stressing the point, Porter said, “it's really, really, really huge.” Porter said it is a lot like finishing one stroke behind Tiger Woods. Kirk still has plenty of goals left.

TUPELO, Miss. — A company that dissembles wide-body commercial aircraft has invited Tupelo officials to take a tour amid some public criticism of how its operation looks. Universal Asset Management flies 747s and other decommissioned aircraft to Tupelo and takes them apart in the former Army Air National Guard facility. The parts are then recycled. To help block the hulking jets from view, the city planted trees and shrubs near the fence line bordering the facility. But it will take years for the foliage to grow into an effective screen. The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports that some residents apparently have complained to city officials about what they claim is an unsightly view. UAM, which opened operations at Tupelo Regional Airport in 2011. “I think the biggest mis-

conception is that UAM is a junkyard that causes damage, and that's the furthest thing from the truth,” said Keri Wright, chief operating officer for the Memphis-based company. “We're not a junkyard. We run a highly sophisticated and highly skilled process that the entire aviation industry depends on,” Wright said. UAM flies 747s and other decommissioned aircraft to Tupelo and takes them apart in the former Army Air National Guard facility. The parts are then recycled. Council member Mike Bryan said some constituents that are unhappy with all the planes. “They want to know how many more planes will come in and are we getting money from them sitting there,” he said. UAM pays the airport $85,000 annually for its lease. That rate will increase each year until capping at $115,000.

Isaac could mean some relief to low Miss. River BY HOLBROOK MOHR Associated Press

JACKSON — Rain from the remnants of Hurricane Isaac could help the drought-stricken Mississippi River, but experts say it's not enough for long-term relief. The Mississippi River is lower than it has been in years, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is busy trying to keep barge traffic flowing on the vital shipping

channel. Marty Pope, a hydrologist for the National Weather Service in Jackson, Miss., says Isaac dumped rain on areas that feed the lower Mississippi River, but too little for a sustained rise in water level. Corps spokesman Kavanaugh Breazeale says the river could rise two feet at Vicksburg, Miss., over the coming weeks.

Goat exhibit will introduce youth to agriculture BY STEVE BEAVERS sbeavers@dailycorinthian.com

Youngsters are going to get a chance to milk a goat at the Alcorn County Fair. Once they try the milking end, children will also be allowed to sample their work. The exhibition is being done by Mandie Wilbanks. Wilbanks and her husband, Josh, raise Purebred Nubian goats on their farm “I want children to come out and see how easily goats are kept and how wonderful the milk is,” said Mandie Wilbanks. Wilbanks, who also works at Rickman’s Meat Market, started using goat milk after her son, Nate, was having trouble eating at two years-old. She bought two young dairy goats and quickly learned that the milk is better in a number of ways than milk from a cow. In fact, 65 percent of milk consumption worldwide is from goats. It has been determined that goat milk is less allergenic. Study of infants shows that those allergic to cow

milk could drink goat milk with virtually no side effects. Goat milk is also naturally homogenized and is easier to digest. It rarely causes lactose intolerance and matches up to the human body better, according to studies. “It’s going to be hands on,” said Wilbanks of the exhibition. “A lot of kids don’t even know that goats produce milk.” The Wilbanks family, also made up of six-yearold Elsie, are set to bring three of the goats along with two babies to the fair on both Friday and Saturday afternoon. Children will be allowed to also feed the smaller goats. “I have showed livestock before, but never goats,” said the mother of two. “Elsie would milk every day, if I would let her.” Wilbanks calls her “Nan’s Milk and Honey” venture a hobby. “I just wanted to teach my kids how to do something since I was raised on a hog farm,” she said.

Oldest convention delegate Revolve service brings originally from Mississippi worship to county fair GARY D. ROBERTSON Associated Press

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The oldest and youngest delegates to the Democratic National Convention were born 80 years apart, but they say the thrill of participating in the political process is timeless. Sam Gray of Marion, Iowa, who turns 18 next month, said he hasn’t had much time to do the homework the teachers at his high school assigned to him. But he’s getting quite an education by coming to Charlotte as one of 5,556 delegates. “It’s amazing to have this opportunity,” said Gray. “It’s really cool to be able to experience this.” On the other side of life, there’s Elzena Johnson of Terry, Miss., who turns 98 on Sept. 25. She’s participating in her first convention after a lifetime of being a mother, a champion swimmer in the senior Olympics into her 80s, a Terry board alderman, and most importantly, a loyal Democrat. She recalls getting active for the party as a teenager. “We are Democrats, and we wouldn’t miss Charlotte,” Johnson said. One of her earliest po-

litical memories as a child is of her parents voting after having paid a $4 poll tax. Johnson was first eligible to vote for president in 1936, casting a ballot for Franklin Roosevelt. Gray’s political memories are much more recent — family members discussing a 2000 debate between Al Gore and George W. Bush, and wanting to learn more. “I didn’t know what they were talking about but I wanted to participate,” he said. Today, he said, “I’m starting the conversation.” Gray serves on the student Senate and plays on the golf team at his high school in Marion, a city of

35,000 near Cedar Rapids. Gray’s parents aren’t party activists, although one uncle was once a small-town mayor and another served in Democrat Jimmy Carter’s administration in transportation. Delegates must be 18 years old on Election Day to qualify as a delegate. “He’s always surprising us,” said his mother, Joann. “He’s very talented and we’re just glad to see him use his talents.” When other teenagers are thinking about cars and dates, Gray is thinking about the future — he wants to be either an attorney or a financial adviser.

Revolve is ready to get crunk. The ministry led by young people will be featured on Wednesday, September 12 at the Alcorn County Fair. “Revolve is a highenergy service geared toward young people,” said organizer Jonathan Marsh. “It is awesome to see the sincere worship.” Willie “Kryst Lyke” Prince, a hip hop artist from Birmingham, Ala., will kick things off at the event set for 6-8 p.m. at the Crossroads Arena. The Zach Fleming Band

is set to follow Prince during the night. Fleming, originally from Decatur, Ala., has led worship across the southeast and worked with such people as Ed Newton and Wade Morris. He committed his life to sharing the Gospel through worship music. “I believe worship is an integral part of every believer’s life,” said Fleming on the band website. “I hope to point all those I come in contact with to the hope and redemption that is found in Christ.” Ike Ubasineke is scheduled to be the featured speaker. Ubasineke, who follows the Revolve

Drama Team that night, is part of the “The Basement” Leadership Development and Worship Team. The Basement Extreme Team is dedicated to reaching the “unreachable” and letting them know of God’s love, hope, and purpose for their lives. Revolve, held the first Monday of each month, draws students to something bigger than themselves. The 150-200 students of the ministry is getting their hands dirty and making a difference in the lives of other young people.

Corinth, Miss.

Sorry, you can’t get there from here BY WILLIAM A. COLLINS “Take the train,” We used to say; But now that train Has gone away. Riding the London Underground from downtown to Heathrow Airport can awaken you to just how archaic America’s transportation system is. Most U.S. cities make heading to the airport a hassle. And once there, where can you fly? Airlines are dropping routes to small cities like hot potatoes, having declared the likes of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and Sioux Falls, South Dakota not profitable enough for non-stop flights. Changing planes multiple times can make your trip take longer than it would if you traveled by train. So, why not board the train instead? In most cases, you can’t do that. The United States has invested big time in roads, but not rails. Practical intercity train travel is confined to very few places, mostly in the Northeast corridor that stretches between Boston and Washington, D.C., and parts of California. And even in those cases, your train fare can cost far more than a discount plane ticket. And all that periodic gab about a high-speed rail system that would rival its counterparts in Europe and Asia lacks both money and political support. That leaves us with highways. Having driven to Alaska and back this summer, I can say with authority that they’re pretty good. I think it’s part of why we Americans regularly drive much farther than our European or Asian brethren. U.S. highways are just too convenient, especially when our public transit is just too abysmal. Further, gas prices are so low compared to Europe that many of us (though not me, not even on my way to Fairbanks) still drive SUVs. Even when gas flirts with the $4-per-gallon mark, we’re still paying only 60 percent of the European rate. We’re also filling oil mogul coffers and pushing our leaders into a string of never-ending Middle East misadventures. The good news for rail believers these days lies in freight, not passengers. The private sector has ramped up its reliance on train travel for trans-oceanic shipping containers. All the rail lines have now invested in intermodal terminals, serious maintenance, and specialized freight cars. Except in New England. Since the Poughkeepsie Bridge over the Hudson burned 40 years ago, trains have no convenient route to get there. Consequently, trucks rule. The railroads are not about to invest their own money in a new crossing, and no single government is in charge. Here, then, is one big downside of privatization: neither the public nor private sector is able to perform when a really major task rears its head. And often they can’t even get together to tackle much smaller challenges. Take buses. With the defection of airlines from small cities, the decay of intercity passenger rail service, and the metastatic growth of highway traffic, a new alternative has sprung from its own long-cold ashes — the bus. As the media is beginning to notice, the intercity bus business is booming. Rather than viewing this popular new phenomenon as a blessing, local governments see it as a bother, and the states scarcely see it at all. What a shame. With our population growing inexorably, oil prices spiraling, the public unwilling to pay for train lines, and ever more air routes shutting down, intercity buses could be a godsend. But no one is willing to pay for them either, no matter how economical they may be. No subsidies, no terminals, and no one’s priority. Buses still appeal mostly to lower-income Americans, who lack political clout. However, if buses were gussied up, given a chance to operate out of attractive terminals, and treated at least as well as trains, the private sector might again bail a segment of our ailing transportation infrastructure. Unfortunately neither the bus companies nor their riders possess the political muscle to make that happen. Further, the automakers and oil companies have the clout to keep serious federal money out of mass transit of any kind. Indeed, for long-distance mass transit, the end of the tunnel remains disappointingly dark. (Daily Corinthian columnist and OtherWords columnist William A.

Prayer for today Strong and loving God, help us to trust you completely. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

A verse to share The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love. — Galatians 5:6 (NIV)

Reece Terry publisher rterry@dailycorinthian.com

Modern conventions hold little drama STARKVILLE — In the national political conventions of my youth, the events offered drama and intrigue that rivaled modern-day reality television shows. Today’s conventions offer virtually no drama. Well into the 1970s, the national conventions arrived with the nominee of the respective parties in doubt. The 1976 Republican convention gave Mississippi a moment in the sun as Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan sparred for the soul of the state’s GOP. After assuming the presidency following the 1974 resignation of President Richard Nixon in the depths of the Watergate scandal, President Gerald Ford began in 1975 to seek the 1976 Republican nomination for president that would culminate at the Kansas City GOP National Convention. In Mississippi, Reagan had earlier won support from Greenville’s Clarke Reed, then-state Sen. Charles Pickering of Laurel and Jackson oilman W.D. “Billy” Mounger. Ford was supported by then-U.S. Rep. Thad Cochran, 1975 Mississippi gubernatorial

nominee Gil Carmichael of Meridian and thenJackson City Commissioner Doug Sid Salter Shanks. But when Columnist Reagan chose liberal Pennsylvania U.S. Sen. Richard Schweiker as his running mate, Reed defected to the Ford camp and other Mississippi delegates followed. Nationally, the Ford-Reagan battle for the nomination was almost dead even and both candidates began to scour the country for uncommitted delegates to the convention. Because of the so-called “unit rule” - which required that the candidate who had the support of the majority of the state’s 30 delegates got all 30 votes — a procedural vote on a Reagan-backed convention rules change was the showdown vote. Mississippi’s 30 votes went against the rules change and Reagan’s bid for the nomination was effectively dead in 1976. Mississippi Democrats — once the dominant party in state politics — continue to

struggle against the state’s current Republican juggernaut. During World War II, Mississippi Democrats took 94 percent of the state’s vote. The late 1940s saw the rise of the Dixiecrat Party over the issue of segregation, but Democrats were able to return to dominance in the 1950s. But the presidential candidacy of John F. Kennedy in 1960 signaled the beginning of the end of Democratic dominance in presidential politics in Mississippi. With the exception of Georgia Gov. Jimmy Carter in 1976, no Democratic nominee has won a presidential bid in Mississippi. Despite Mississippi’s rather predictable presidential political behavior, the conventions were still dramatic affairs up until the rise of early primaries and “Super Tuesday” politics. Now, the conventions carry zero drama as to the nomination process and serve rather as a scripted week of prime time exposure for the major parties in which the smallest details are stage managed. After covering both Re-

publican and Democratic national conventions, it became clear to me that that while the scripting and packaging of modern conventions is visible to TV viewers, it’s more evident in the convention halls to the delegates. That’s why actor Clint Eastwood’s appearance at the GOP convention was so captivating. Eastwood obviously had no script and was obeying no time limit. His rambling, vaguely scary speech kept Republicans and Democrats alike on the edge of their seats hanging on his every word. Politics was more fun before the spin doctors, the speech writers, the TV commercial producers, the ad agencies and the focus groups took command of the process. Clint Eastwood reminded the nation that there is virtually nothing more invigorating for political junkies than an unscripted speaker in front of an open microphone — empty chair and all.

Obama hobbled by record, slumping Democratic brand BY MICHAEL BARONE “One question, Mr. President,” read the words on the front cover of this week’s Economist, behind a silhouette of the back of Barack Obama’s head, “just what would you do with another four years?” It’s a good question, and one that’s still open as Barack Obama prepares to deliver his acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention in rainstorm-plagued Charlotte tonight. Other presidents seeking re-election have usually provided a more or less convincing answer. George W. Bush said he would try to reform Social Security and advance energy independence. Bill Clinton said he would provide “a bridge to the twenty-first century,” which turned out to include significant tax cuts and a lunge toward Medicare reform. Bush failed to deliver on Social Security, and Clinton failed to deliver on Medicare, but both tried to pivot from a first-term to a second-term agenda. The first George Bush, in contrast, didn’t seem to pivot. He gave the impression he’d just keep going on. That wasn’t good enough for voters. Obama similarly has not pivoted. Unlike Clinton, he did not shift ground when his party was rejected in the off-year election.

For a second term he has been calling for more infrastructure stimulus, more unionized teachers and (though he has said it’s harmful in a time of economic sluggishness) higher tax rates on high earners. Republican strategist Karl Rove had a bit of fun with this last week in his Wall Street Journal column, imagining how a more moderate and compromising Obama would be running well ahead now, as Clinton was at this point in 1996. Instead, the Obama campaign, with assists from mainstream media and during the months it had a money advantage, has concentrated on demonizing Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. Clinton did this with great effect on Bob Dole in 1996. It hasn’t worked so well this time. The Democrats’ other strategy is to rouse the enthusiasm of their various disparate constituencies. This hasn’t worked for an incumbent Democrat since Harry Truman in 1948. But it is something you fall back on given the nature of the Democratic Party. The Republicans have always had a core constituency of people considered by themselves and others as typical Americans — Northern Protestants in the 19th century, white married Christians today — who are by themselves less

than a majority. The Democratic Party has typically been a coalition of out-groups — white Southerners and big city Catholics in the 19th century. Today, the coalition includes blacks and to a lesser extent Hispanics, unmarried women, members of the Millennial generation, public employee union members and, most important, the group that demographer Joel Kotkin dubbed gentry liberals. They don’t always agree. Blacks tend to oppose same-sex marriage, while gentry liberals strongly favor it. Labor unions want the Keystone pipeline, while environmentalists want to kill it. Other difficulties have surfaced. Democrats to their surprise find themselves on the defensive on Medicare, needing to explain why they took $716 billion from it and gave it to the still unpopular Obamacare. Late in the game, Obama decided to rope in Bill Clinton to give a big convention speech Wednesday night. In effect, he’s trying to suggest his second four years will look like Clinton’s. In the meantime, there is evidence that the Democratic Party brand, to use marketing term, is in trouble. Pollster Scott Rasmussen periodically estimates party identification on the basis of

World Wide Web: www.dailycorinthian.com To Sound Off: E-mail: email: news@dailycorinthian.com Circulation 287-6111 Classified Adv. 287-6147

thousands of robocall interviews of likely voters. His findings have been uncannily close to the exit polls. In the last quarter of 2008, his party ID numbers were 41 percent Democratic, 33 percent Republican. The 2008 exit poll showed Democrats ahead in party ID by 39 to 32 percent. In the third quarter of 2010, Rasmussen pegged party ID as tied at 35 percent. The 2010 exit poll showed it exactly the same. The third quarter of 2012 is not yet over. But the Rasmussen party ID numbers for the second and third quarters combined are ominous for Obama’s party: 34 percent Democratic, 36 percent Republican. Republicans are up only 3 percent from 2008, but Democrats are down 7 percent. The partisan playing field has changed a lot since 2008. But Obama’s policies have not. There has been no pivot. It will be interesting to see how loudly and often the delegates cheer, “Four more years!” (Daily Corinthian columnist Michael Barone, senior political analyst for The Washington Examiner, www.washingtonexaminer.com, is a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, a Fox News Channel contributor and a co-author of The Almanac of American Politics.)

State Child care operators oppose new system JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Child care operators are complaining about Mississippi’s plan to install fingerprint scanners to check in and out children who benefit from federally-subsidized vouchers. Operators said Wednesday that it’s another effort to cut payments when they already feel squeezed. They said parents may pull their children out because of the hassle or because they fear having their finger scanned. The state Department of Human Services was not invited to a legislative hearing Wednesday when complaints were aired. DHS Director Ricky Berry wrote in a letter to state Sen. Albert Butler, D-Port Gibson, that the system will cut costs and stop centers from being paid when children aren’t there. Butler, chairman of the Investigate State Offices Committee, said he plans another meeting to give the department

a say, and wants administrators to hold a public hearing on the rules. Those rules are currently up for public comment. DHS plans to adopt the rules Oct. 1. Scanners are currently being tested in some Jacksonarea centers. They’re supposed to be rolled out Nov. 1 in 38 counties in southwest Mississippi, the Delta and around Jackson. The remaining 42 counties are supposed to start using the scanners Feb. 1. Carol Burnett, executive director of the Biloxibased Low Income Childcare Initiative, said DHS appears locked into its course of action. “I don’t foresee that hearing changing DHS’ mind about implementation,” she said. “Truthfully, they seem pretty committed.”

Singing Brakeman’s birthday celebrated MERIDIAN, Miss. (AP) — Events are planned Thursday and Saturday in Meridian in celebration of Jimmie Rodgers’

115th birthday. The birthday celebration for the “Father of Country Music” kicks off at 6 p.m. Thursday with a party at the Dentzel Carousel in Highland Park on Thursday. Betty Lou Jones, president of the Jimmie Rodgers Foundation, tells the Meridian Star that the design for a Jimmie Rodgers specialty car tag will be unveiled during the celebration. The tag was approved this year by the Legislature On Saturday, the International Singing Brakeman Association will celebrate Rodgers’ birthday on Saturday at the Best Western Motel in Meridian beginning at 2 p.m. Born in Meridian on Sept. 8, 1897, Rodgers was also known as the “Singing Brakeman” for his work on the railroad. He made his first recording in 1927. Rodgers died of tuberculosis at the age of 35 on May 26, 1933 in New York City. He was the first performer elected to Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame in 1961.

Rodgers also has been inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame (1970) and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (1986). He also has been honored with a Mississippi Blues Trail marker in Meridian in 2007. The first star on the Mississippi Arts and Entertainment Center’s Walk of Fame was dedicated to Rodgers in 2009. Rodgers was honored with the first marker on the Mississippi Country Music Trail in 2010. Meridian holds an annual festival in his honor.

3rd arrest made in fatal shooting MERIDIAN, Miss. (AP) — Meridian police say a third suspect has been arrested in an Aug. 21 fatal shooting. Police Chief James Reed says 29-year-old Robert Demond Moore of Meridian has been charged with murder in the August shooting death of Jaddarian Jimerson on a city street. Reed says Moore posted a $350,000 bond and

State reports 2 new West Nile virus deaths JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — The Mississippi State Department of Health is reporting two new deaths and 19 new human cases of the West Nile virus. Health officials say both deaths were in

Rankin County, and the new cases were reported in Calhoun (2), Copiah (1), Hinds (1), Lamar (1), Lauderdale (1), Madison (2), Marion (1), Pearl River (1), Rankin (6), Warren (1), and Yazoo (2) counties, bringing the state total to 114 cases and four deaths. Health officials say it is the largest number of cases reported by the end of July since 2002. In 2011, Mississippi had 52 WNV cases and five deaths. The MSDH only reports laboratoryconfirmed cases to the public. The MSDH is also reporting a human case of La Crosse Encephalitis in Lawrence County.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Democratic officials are moving President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s convention speech Thursday indoors, citing the possibility of severe weather. Obama had planned to accept his partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nomination in an outdoor football stadium before a crowd of up to 74,000 people. But Obama officials said forecasters have predicted severe thunderstorms Thursday in the 9 p.m. to 10 p.m. hour, raising concerns about the safety of supporters, volunteers, staff members and law enforcement. Officials said Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entire program would be moved indoors, including Vice President Joe Bidenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s speech. The events will be held at the Time Warner Cable Arena, the site of the first two days of the convention proceedings. Obama will speak to about 15,000 people gathered in the arena Thursday, a far smaller audience than had been expected at the outdoor stadium. Democrats were warily watching the weather all week. Their worst case scenario was a last-minute cancellation that would strand tens of thousands of people, many of whom had planned to arrive by the busload in the middle

of the storm with no place to go. Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team, locked in a tight race with Republican Mitt Romney in this Southern battleground state, determined that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worth the political risk. Democrats were also worried about the possibility of anti-Obama hecklers acquiring some of the free tickets to the event and disrupting the presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s speech. The move indoors limits that possibility because most of those in the crowd will be official convention participants. Republicans, who canceled the first day of their convention due to weather in Tampa, Fla., accused Democrats of downgrading their events because of low enthusiasm. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After promising to hold the event at Bank of America stadium rain or shine, suddenly Team Obama is moving inside after questions about enthusiasm for the event,â&#x20AC;? said Kirsten Kukowski, spokeswoman for the Republican National Committee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the real forecast for the speech? Forty percent chance of lies and scattered excuses.â&#x20AC;? Democrats insisted the decision was based strictly on the weather. Steve Kerrigan, who heads the Democratic convention, said more than

65,000 people had signed up for credentials to attend the outdoor speech but now could not be accommodated because of the smaller venue. He said organizers were encouraging those credential holders and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Americans across the country to continue to come together with their friends and neighbors to watch and participate in history.â&#x20AC;? Kerrigan said Obama would speak to those credential holders on a national conference call Thursday afternoon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will work with the campaign to ensure that those unable to attend tomorrowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event will be invited to see the president between now and Election Day,â&#x20AC;? he said. Forecasts for Thursday night had been improving all through the week. The National Weather Service said Wednesday morning that there is a 40 percent chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon, but it would drop to 20 percent by the time the president was scheduled to speak in the 10 p.m. hour. But there was still no guarantee of good weather for Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s speech. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re dealing with a warm, unstable air mass, so you can never absolutely say itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to rain or storm,â&#x20AC;? said National Weather Service meteorologist Bryan McAvoy.

Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., announced in late July plans for the six-month funding measure, which is expected to keep most agency budgets funded essentially at current levels. A lame duck session of Congress after the Nov. 6 elections is expected to focus on efforts to avoid the socalled fiscal cliff â&#x20AC;&#x201D; an austere, one-two punch combining the expiration of Bush-era tax cuts and automatic cuts to the Pentagon and other Cabinet agencies that were required after a congressional supercommittee failed to reach a debt-reduction agreement last year.

was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;security riskâ&#x20AC;? and would not be allowed on the flight, he said. The parents protested, and later were rebooked to fly coach with another airline. American Airlines spokesman Matt Miller said the disabled boy was agitated and running around the gate area prior to boarding, which his parents dispute. The airplaneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pilot observed the boy, Miller said, and made the call based on his behavior. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was not ready to fly, that was our perspective,â&#x20AC;? Miller said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We rebooked the family out of concern for the young manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safety and that of other passengers as well.â&#x20AC;? But Vanderhorst said his son did not run at any time, did not make any loud noises and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t display any other offensive behaviors. The boy walked around with him or sat quietly in the gate area, Vanderhorst said. Vanderhorst said Bede, a freshman at Granite Hills High School in Porterville, about 70 miles from Fresno, is very charming in contact with other people. The family has flown more than two dozen times with him, without any difficulties. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Usually my son gets his snack and falls asleep, just like most people,â&#x20AC;? Vanderhorst said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The problem is this pilot thought my son might not be like most people. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want a disabled person disturbing other passengers in first class.â&#x20AC;? The family says the pilot might have also been affected by the disabled boyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s size â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Bede is 5 foot -1 and weighs 160 pounds.

Nation Briefs Dawn craft to depart asteroid for Ceres LOS ANGELES (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; One asteroid down, one to go. After spending a year gazing at Vesta, NASAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dawn spacecraft was set to cruise toward the most massive space rock in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a voyage that will take nearly three years. Firing its ion propulsion thrusters, Dawn had been slowly spiraling away from Vesta for more than a month until it was to pop free from its gravitational grip. Since its antenna was pointed away from Earth during this last maneuver, engineers would not know until Wednesday how it went. The departure was considered ho-hum compared with other recent missions â&#x20AC;&#x201D; think Curiosityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s whiteknuckle â&#x20AC;&#x153;seven minutes

Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no tension, no anxiety,â&#x20AC;? said chief engineer Marc Rayman of the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which manages the $466 million mission. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all very gentle and very graceful.â&#x20AC;? Launched in 2007, Dawn is on track to become the first spacecraft to rendezvous with two celestial bodies in a bid to learn about the solar systemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s evolution. Dawn slipped into orbit last year around Vesta â&#x20AC;&#x201D; about the size of Arizona â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and beamed back stunning close-ups of the lumpy surface.

CHRIST ONLY HAS ONE CHURCH Christ promised to build His church in Matthew 16:18. â&#x20AC;&#x153; ... and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against itâ&#x20AC;?. Paul identifies the church as the one body. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sake, which is the churchâ&#x20AC;?

(Eph 4:4). â&#x20AC;&#x153;But now are they many members, yet but one bodyâ&#x20AC;? (1 Cor. 12:20). Since the body is the church; Christ only has one church. Paul revealed that those who were baptized were baptized into the one body. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spiritâ&#x20AC;? (1Cor 12:13). Christ is referred to as the head of the body the church. (CoI 1:18). Since there is only one body or church, why are there so many different churches today? All who claim to be the Lordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s church should honor Christ by wearing His name. Christ is not associated with denominationalism and does not approve of it. Denominational names are not found in the new testament? Paul revealed that the Lord purchased the church with His own blood according to Acts 20:28: â&#x20AC;&#x153; Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own bloodâ&#x20AC;?. The only church which belongs to Christ is the one He purchased with His blood, is the head of and the one who wears His name. Are we a member of the Lordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s church or a denominational group which we cannot read about in the Bible? The Lordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s church started about 33 A. D., some 1500 years before denominationalism. The one body refers to the Lordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s church (Eph 4:4-6, Eph 1:22-23; Col 1:24).

Capitol Hill are likely to ensure a smooth flow of disaster aid in the wake of Hurricane Isaac. Congressional aides are working quietly on a six-month government funding bill that would prevent a shutdown of the government next month and ensure that the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main disaster relief program gets a steady flow of money. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a different story from a year ago, when inadequate Federal Emergency Management Agency funding and slew of expensive disasters almost combined to drain the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main disaster program dry. A spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said Tuesday itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hoped lawmakers can reach agreement on the funding bill next week. The House and the Senate then would pass it before the current budget year ends on Sept. 30 and avert a government shutdown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have heard of no hiccups,â&#x20AC;? Boehner spokesman Kevin Smith said.

the asteroid belt littered with chunks of rocks that never quite bloomed into full-fledged planets. As cosmic time capsules, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ideal for scientists trying to piece together how Earth and the other planets formed and evolved. During its yearlong stay at Vesta, Dawn used its cameras, infrared spectrometer, and gamma ray and neutron detector to explore the asteroid from varying altitudes, getting as close as 130 miles above the surface. Dawn uncovered a few surprises. Scientists have long known that Vesta sports an impressive scar at its south pole, likely carved by an impact with a smaller asteroid. A closer inspection revealed that Vesta hid a second scar in the same region â&#x20AC;&#x201D; evidence that it had been whacked twice within the last 2 billion years.

Disabled boy not allowed to board plane FRESNO, Calif. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A California family that was not allowed to board a cross-country flight says they believe they were discriminated against because their son has Down syndrome. Robert Vanderhorst, his wife Joan and 16-year-old son Bede, who is disabled, were booked to fly on an American Airlines flight from Newark to Los Angeles on Sunday when the boy and his parents were not allowed on the plane. The family from Porterville had upgraded to first class tickets at an airport kiosk, and asked the airline to seat the boy and one of his parents together â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a request the airline granted â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Vanderhorst said Tuesday. When the family was ready to board, they were stopped by airline personnel, told their son

The Corinth Lady Warriors remained unbeaten at home with a straight set win over Tishomingo County on Tuesday. Corinth improved its overall mark to 12-6 — 6-0 in the Teepee — with a 3-0 win over Tishomingo County. The 25-10, 25-20, 25-19 win also provided CHS with a home-and-home sweep of the Lady Braves. Grace Swanson paced the winners with 10 assists and tied Sadie Johnson for the team lead with two aces. Johnson also chipped in five assists and was second on the squad with five kills. Jaynesia Johnson had six kills to pace the Lady Warriors. Aundrea Adams recorded a team-best three blocks, with Prentiss Worsham and Madison Colley leading the dig effort with three each. Corinth returns to action Monday at New Albany.

FARMINGTON — The Cubs and Dodgers are playing for all the marbles. The two clubs captured the respective Yard Division and Lawn Division championships over the weekend and advanced to the Mississippi Yard Wiffleball League’s World Series. The seven-game series will begin Saturday at 2:45 at CoOp Field at Home Banking Company Stadium. The Dodgers — the regu-

lar-season champions in the Lawn Division — lost Game One to the Padres before reeling off three straight to claim

the best-of-5 series. The No. 2 seed Friars had advanced to the league championship with a 2-0 sweep of the Braves in the Divisional Round. The Yard Divisional Championship was a classic with the Cubs pulling a 3-1 upset over the regular-season champion Rangers. The Cubs walked-off in Game 4 after trailing 8-5 heading into their final at-bat. The Rangers entered the postseason hot, winning 14 of their last 15 to climb out

of the cellar and earn the division championship and a first-round bye. All four games were decided by one run. The Rangers opened the series with a 5-4 win before the Cubs clawed back for 7--6 and 6-5 wins in Games Two and Three. The Cubs opened the postseason with a sweep of the rival Cardinals in the Divisional Round. (For more visit www. leaguelineup.com/msyardwiffleballleague)

Defensive Player of the Week Northeast Mississippi Community College sophomore linebacker Nick Thomason was named Defensive Player of the Week by the Mississippi Association of Community/Junior Colleges. The sophomore registered 11 tackles (six solo), two tackles for loss and blocked an extra-point kick in a 33-14 loss to Copiah-Lincoln on Saturday.

Local trapshooter keeps eye on target Associated Press

JACKSON — Many hunters would be happy if they could hit just one 41⁄2-inch clay disc flying through the air at 42 miles per hour. Tony Kirk of Corinth won’t be satisfied until he hits 100. One hundred out of 100, to be precise. At age 10, Kirk started shooting trap with his father after going to a range at his hometown of Corinth. “I shot a round or two and was hooked from there,” said Kirk.

Now 14, Kirk accomplished in August what most trapshooters never achieve in a lifetime. Kirk won a sub-junior competition at the Grand American World Trapshooting Championships in Sparta, Ill., an event that draws thousands of the top trapshooters in the U.S. and abroad. His father was quite proud of Kirk’s accomplishment. “There are people that go up there their whole life and don’t come home with a trophy,” Tony Kirk Sr. said.

Kirk didn’t stop there. He competed against more than 2,000 other shooters of all ages for a chance at the biggest event, the Grand American Handicap. Jim Porter with the American Trapshooters Association said the handicap system is much like a handicap in golf and the distance from which a competitor shoots is based on known ability and other factors. Shooting 99 clays out of 100, Kirk seemed to have secured a spot in the final round

of the Handicap, until someone shot a perfect 100 and left Kirk as the runner-up. How big is runner-up? According to Porter, “the accomplishment he has made is huge, nothing short of huge.” Stressing the point, Porter said, “it’s really, really, really huge.” Porter said it is a lot like finishing one stroke behind Tiger Woods. Kirk still has plenty of goals left. “Next year,” he said, “I want to win it all.”

Hamilton: Armstrong book provides relief Associated Press

NEW YORK — At first, Tyler Hamilton was impressed with the power Lance Armstrong wielded in cycling circles, his ability to call the head of the international cycling federation at any time — and call him by his first name.

As time passed, Hamilton saw how that power could work against him, too — for example, when he was summoned to the federation’s offices and warned he was being monitored shortly after beating Armstrong in a race. The 41-year-old, who rode

with Armstrong on the U.S. Postal Service team from 1998 to 2001, details the years he spent lying about using performance-enhancing drugs and his relationship with Armstrong in his book, “The Secret Race, Inside the Hidden World of the Tour de

France: Doping, Cover-Ups and Winning at All Costs.” He said coming clean about secrets he always swore he’d take to the grave gave him a sense of peace after years “of being so stressed out,” even Please see BOOK | 9

Roddick’s career ends with loss to del Potro Associated Press

NEW YORK — Chants of “Let’s go, Andy!” rang out between points during the last service game of his career, and again before the start of what would wind up as the last return game. Always a fan favorite at the U.S. Open, and the 2003 champion, Andy Roddick headed into retirement with a

6-7 (1), 7-6 (4), 6-2, 6-4 loss to Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina in the fourth round at Flushing Meadows on Wednesday. It was an emotional farewell for Roddick, who sat in his changeover chair, covering his face with a white towel, after sailing a running forehand long on the last point. He choked up during an on-court

speech at Arthur Ashe Stadium, telling the crowd, “Oh, wow. For the first time in my career, I’m not sure what to say.” “Since I was a kid, I’ve been coming to this tournament. I felt lucky just to sit where all of you are sitting today, to watch this game, to see the champions that have come and gone,” Roddick told the

fans. “I’ve loved every minute of it.” The American surprisingly announced last Thursday, his 30th birthday, that the U.S. Open would be his final tournament. That impromptu news conference came a day before Roddick’s secondround match, and he wound Please see RODDICK | 9

well after he retired. “The truth will set you free, I’d always heard that term,” Hamilton told The Associated Press during an interview Wednesday. “Once in a while, when I was younger, I’d lie, then tell the truth and I’d feel better. But this was like a thousand-pound backpack off my shoulders. I was out of cycling, I was continuing to live my life in my post-cycling career. But I was miserable. There was something wrong.” The book, released Wednesday, is a culmination of a gutwrenching 18 months for Hamilton, who provided details to a grand jury looking into the Armstrong case, then talked about them during an interview on “60 Minutes.” All of his information was used in the case the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency brought against Armstrong. Armstrong has long denied doping but last week chose not to fight drug charges by USADA, which last month erased 14 years of Armstrong’s competitive results, including his seven Tour de France titles. Wearing a light grey suit and long curly hair that brushed his neck, Hamilton looked and sounded much more relaxed than the halting, hesitant person who appeared on “60 Minutes” in May 2011.

up winning that one, and a thirdrounder, too, riding a wave of support in the stands. But those two opponents were ranked 43rd and 59th, and the seventh-seeded del Potro, the 2009 U.S. Open champion, provided a far more daunting challenge — especially once he lifted his energy level and got his big, flat forehand cranked up. The match was suspended because of rain Tuesday night after Roddick took the first point of the opening-set tiebreaker, and they resumed more than 18 hours later in front of thousands of empty blue seats. It took Roddick only four minutes to close that set, fresh and strong as can be, while del Potro was rather sluggish. The key, probably, was the third set. Neither man faced so much as a single break point, and this time it was del Potro’s turn to dominate the tiebreaker. Gaining more traction on his opponent’s once-all-powerful serve, del Potro whipped a cross-court forehand return right at Roddick’s feet on set point. Del Potro’s momentum swing continued when he broke to begin the third set. He hit a drop shot that Roddick chased, grunting loudly, and eventually del Potro deposited a passing winner that left Roddick hanging his head. Del Potro broke again for a 3-0 edge in that set, producing a drop shot winner that Roddick didn’t even chase.

Sudden Impact

Stephen Strasburg

Hisashi Iwakuma, Seattle You may not be familiar with Iwakuma, but he is quickly becoming one of Seattle’s top starters. Last week he was 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA and 0.75 WHIP. After a win at Minnesota, the slender righthander tossed 7.1 shutout innings against the Angels, giving up just five hits, no walks and seven strikeouts in the 2-1 win. The Mariners have won his last five starts.

Pedro Alvarez, Pittsburgh The Pirates’ third baseman is beginning to unlock the potential that made him the second overall pick in 2008. He began last week with 10 hits in four games, including 11 total bases in a win over St. Louis on Tuesday. He batted .458 with a 1.542 OPS and led the NL with four home runs. During the week, he either scored or drove home more than a third of the Pirates’ runs.

The Angels’ Mike Trout continues to chase history as a 21-year-old rookie bidding to become just the third rookie to win AL MVP honors. How does his season stack up against the best rookie seasons of all-time? Here’s at glance at the best rookie seasons ever. 1. Ted Williams, Boston Red Sox, 1939 The Splendid Splinter burst onto the scene in Boston leading the ALwith 145 RBIs and 344 total bases. His command of the strike zone was immediately evident by his 107 walks. 2. Albert Pujols, St. Louis Cardinals, 2001 After a meteoric rise through the minors, the 13th-round draft pick started more than 30 games at four different positions. On a team that included Mark McGwire and Jim Edmonds, the rookie led the Redbirds in runs, hits, doubles, home runs and RBIs. 3. Dale Alexander, Detroit Tigers, 1929 His career was brief — only five seasons — due a knee injury, but his rookie season was stellar. The Tigers’ first baseman led the circuit with 215 hits and did not miss a game. He won a batting title in 1932.

Mike Trout of the Angels conjures up memories of a young Ted Williams (left) and Trout’s teammate Albert Pujols during their rookie campaigns. Will Trout have a similar career?

4. Fred Lynn, Boston Red Sox, 1975 Some of his numbers pale compared to other eras, but the 1970s were not kind to hitters. The Gold Glove outfielder is one of only six rookies ever with 100 runs and RBIs, and he led the AL in runs, doubles, slugging and OPS. He was the first rookie to win an MVP.

Best Seasons by Rookies

Bud Norris, Houston It isn’t easy getting wins these days in Houston, but that doesn’t prevent Norris from pitching well enough to earn victories. In 12.2 innings over two starts, Norris had a 0.95 ERA and 0.71 WHIP pitching against San Francisco and Cincinnati. He left the Giants game after 6.2 innings with the score tied 1-1, then tossed six shutout innings over the Reds and left with a 1-0 lead. The Astros’ bullpen lost both games.

Christian Yelich, Miami The 20-year-old is already in his third professional season. The slim outfielder has played in 106 games at High-A Jupiter batting .330 with 12 home runs and 20 steals.

Chris Owings, Arizona The defensive whiz split time between HighA and Double-A this season. After hitting .324 at Visalia, he was promoted to Mobile where he’s batting .259.

Sept. 6, 1995 As MLB and its players desperately try to mend fences with fans after a labor dispute cancelled the 1994 postseason and delayed the beginning of the season, Cal Ripken Jr. emerges as a saving grace for the game. Ripken plays in his 2,131st consecutive game for the Baltimore Orioles, breaking a record once thought to be untouchable. The game is delayed for 20 minutes in the fifth inning as the crowd celebrates the accomplishment.

Los Angeles Dodgers at San Francisco Forget about home-field advantage in this great rivalry. The last two series have been swept by the visitors — Los Angeles in San Francisco and the Giants in L.A. Chad Billingsley (with relief help) and Clayton Kershaw hurled back-to-back shutouts during the Dodgers’ last visit to San Fran, but neither will pitch in this series. The scheduled pitching matchups do not exactly exude classic pennant race drama. Josh Beckett, Chris Capuano and Joe Blanton will pitch for the visitors, while Tim Lincecum, Matt Cain and Barry Zito will go for the Giants.

Best Rookie Seasons of All-Time

Adrian Beltre, Texas Beltre is honored here for the second week in a row as he continues to creep into the MVP discussion. The Texas third baseman had three three-hit games last week and batted .478 with a 1.563 OPS. Among his seven extra-base hits were three home runs, and he drove in seven runs. Beltre closed the week with an 8for-14 series against Cleveland, all the while playing excellent defense at the hot corner.

New York Yankees at Baltimore Last weekend at New York, the Orioles won two of three to creep ever closer to the Yankees in the AL East. The Yankees’ lead, which had reached double-digits in July, stood at just two games at the end of the weekend. Newcomer Randy Wolf earned his first win as an Oriole on Sunday in relief of Chris Tillman, who left injured. Baltimore ace Wei-Yin Chen will pitch the first game of the four-game set on Thursday. Youngster Zach Britton, who has given up just three runs over his last three starts, will pitch the finale for Baltimore. The Yankees will send 13-game winners Phil Hughes (Friday) and CC Sabathia (Saturday) to the mound.

5. Richie Allen, Philadelphia Phillies, 1964 Later known as Dick Allen, the enigmatic slugger had some difficulty finding a home later in his career. But during his rookie season, the Phillies’ offense leaned on him as he led the NL in runs and triples. He started every game at third base. 6. Mark McGwire, Oakland A’s, 1987 Before his arms blew up like Popeye’s, McGwire was a feared slugger for Oakland. Part of the Bash Brothers with Jose Canseco, McGwire established a rookie record with 49 home runs, which led the AL that season. 7. Ichiro Suzuki, Seattle Mariners, 2001 Ichiro came to America as the owner of seven batting titles in Japan, not exactly inexperienced. But winning a batting title, a stolen base title and earning MVP honors in his first season in the U.S. is impressive. 8. Tony Oliva, Minnesota Twins, 1964 Oliva won a batting title and led the American League in hits, runs and doubles. He joined Hall of Famers Rod Carew and Harmon Killebrew in a formidable lineup in the 1960s, leading the Twins to the World Series in 1965, and to two division titles in 1969-70.

Age of Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout, who is the youngest player ever to hit 25 home runs and steal 40 bases in a season. Trout is bidding to become just the third rookie to win an MVP award. Record for the Baltimore Orioles when leading after seven innings. Runs in August for Angel Pagan of the Giants. No other National Leaguer scored more than 22. 1-0 losses by the Tampa Bay Rays this season, which leads the majors. Two of the games went 10 innings and all four came in August. American League teams with a winning record vs. the AL West. The division-leading Texas Rangers are not one of the five. The list includes the Yankees and Rays from the East, the White Sox from the Central and the Angels and A’s from the West.

11,759 Average attendance for a four-game series in Baltimore featuring the White Sox and Orioles — essentially two playoff teams in a city presumably of fans starved for winning baseball. #smh 1997

The last season the Red Sox finished below .500. They must finish 19-8 to avoid a losing season.

9. Joe DiMaggio, New York Yankees, 1936 Joltin’ Joe began his assault on AL pitching right out of the box. He finished eighth in MVP voting and it marked the only time in his career that he led the league in triples. 10. Carlton Fisk, Boston Red Sox, 1972 Our most vivid memory of Fisk is the stout catcher waving a home run fair to walkoff Game 6 of the 1975 World Series. Pudge won a Gold Glove as a rookie and led the AL with nine triples. His OPS+ of 162 ranks among the best ever for a first-year player. 11. Frank Robinson, Cincinnati Reds, 1956 Robinson, who would become the first player to win the MVP award in both leagues, got the attention of NL pitchers quickly in 1956. His OPS of .936 finished second in the NL to Duke Snider, and ranked ahead of Willie Mays, Hank Aaron and Stan Musial. 12. Johnny Mize, St. Louis Cardinals, 1936 The Hall of Famer had a .400 onbase percentage in each of his first six seasons. He missed three full seasons due to WWII service, and wasn’t quite the same player when he returned. 13. Nomar Garciaparra, Boston Red Sox, 1997 Nomar led the league in hits and triples during his rookie campaign. He earned a trip to the All-Star Game, finished eighth in MVP balloting and won a Silver Slugger award. 14. Ryan Braun, Milwaukee Brewers, 2007 His rookie season was briefer than most since he didn’t make his debut until May 25. But his 34 home runs tied for fifth in the league and his .634 slugging topped the NL. 15. Mike Piazza, Los Angeles Dodgers, 1993 The second of five consecutive Dodgers to win the NL Rookie of the Year, Piazza started 141 games behind the plate. He led the Dodgers in average, runs, homers and RBIs.

The Washington Nationals are closing in on their first postseason berth since moving to Washington in 2005. While there has been great baseball tradition in Washington dating back to the early 1900s, there has been very little postseason baseball in our nation’s capital. Can you name the only three teams to play postseason games in Washington DC? TRIVIA ANSWER: The old Washington Senators of the American League (who moved to Minneapolis in 1961) played in the World Series in 1924, 1925 and 1933. The Pittsburgh Pirates and New York Giants represented the National League in those Series.

First at-bat in the 2012 Futures Game: Home Run. First at-bat in the big leagues: home run. Second at-bat in the majors: double. That’s just a taste of what this summer has been like for Texas Rangers’ rising star Jurickson Profar. The 19-year-old made his major league debut for the Rangers last Sunday, playing second base, a postion he has played very little in the minors. A natural shortstop, Profar had appeared just 25 times at second base, but handled the position well for the Rangers. The youngster’s exploits have had researchers rifling through pages of history to find other teenage phenoms and their first atbats. Here’s a sampling: • Profar is now the youngest player ever to homer for the Rangers, besting Ivan Rodriguez. • The last 19-year-old in the American League to homer in his first game was pitcher Denny McLain, but not in his first at-bat. • At 19 years, 195 days, Profar is the youngest MLB player to homer since his teammate Adrian Beltre did it for the Dodgers back in 1998. • According to Elias Sports Bureau, Profar joins Whitey Lockman (1945) and Ted Tappe (1950) as the only teenagers to homer in their first at-bats, only Lockman at 18 years, 345 days, was younger.

Reds Cruising to NL Central title. Nationals Can Nats hold on without Stephen Strasburg? Rangers Jurickson Profar certainly looks like the real deal. Yankees Huge week coming up at Tampa and Baltimore. Giants Went 5-1 on back-to-back road trips. Braves Bravos feel like they can run down the Nats. A’s Where did all this winning come from? Rays Next 12 games against contenders. Orioles Within one good weekend of catching the Yanks. Tigers Maybe this time they really do have control of the division. White Sox Tigers’ ace Verlander beat Sox ace Sale on Sunday. Dodgers Must gain ground against the Giants this weekend. Cardinals Offense took about a week off. Pirates Back-to-back shutouts over St. Louis looked good at the time. Angels Won 9 of 12 to climb back in race; 7 of next 10 games vs. A’s. Diamondbacks Still nine games left with San Francisco. Mariners Continue to bank on starting pitching. Phillies Committed to being a spoiler down the stretch. Brewers One of the teams that contenders don’t want to play right now. Mets Can affect wild card race vs. Cards, Braves and Nats. Padres Last seven saves by four different pitchers. Royals Finishing with a flurry could yield 76 wins, most since 2003. Red Sox Can Bobby V and Dustin Pedroia coexist? Blue Jays Last two series Jays won were against Yankees and Tigers. Marlins Ozzie Guillen will likely get a mulligan on this season. Twins Need just eight wins to avoid 100 losses. Rockies Can the Rockies get one pitcher to 10 wins? Indians Need to learn from this season and move on. Cubs Optimistic about young players, but lots of holes to fill. Astros Total house cleaning on the field and in the front office.

Votto’s return doesn’t help Reds against Phillies The Associated Press

CINCINNATI — Not even the return of All-Star first baseman Joey Votto was enough to help the Cincinnati Reds win a series from the Philadelphia Phillies. Votto went 2-for-3 with a walk in his first game since July 15, but Erik Kratz hit a three-run home run, Chase Utley added a two-run shot, and Roy Halladay pitched the Phillies to a 6-2 win on Wednesday. Votto lined the third pitch he saw in 52 days

to left field for a single with two outs in the first inning. He walked in the fourth and singled to left-center in the sixth before striking out looking against left-hander Antonio Bastardo in the eighth. “I think it went better than I expected,” Votto said. “I was happy to be back in the lineup playing. Unfortunately, it came with a loss.” Reds manager Dusty Baker thought about taking Votto out in the seventh, but changed his

mind when Votto said he was OK. “Joey’s fine,” Baker said. “I think those (medical) rehab days (in the minor leagues) really helped. I asked him in the seventh inning how he was doing, and he said he was fine.” “He looked pretty good to me. He even slid. We didn’t anticipate him sliding on that double-play ball, but he’s a ballplayer.” Votto hurt his knee sliding into third base in San Francisco on June 29. He went into another slid Wednesday in the fourth

inning. “The knee held up well until Bastardo buckled it,” Votto joked. “I was a little apprehensive and did some things gingerly. I have to get over that hurdle, and I will at some point.” Votto said he was humbled by the ovation he received when he went out just before the game to loosen up, and by the standing ovation given to him by half of the crowd when he stepped to the plate in the first inning. “I’m appreciative of the

support,” said Votto, who admitted on Tuesday to being apprehensive about his reception. “It exceeded my expectations.” Halladay, 4-1 in his last six starts, is 110-0 when he is staked to a lead of at least four runs. Halladay (9-7) scattered eight hits over 7 1-3 innings, allowing one run with five strikeouts and one walk. Philadelphia won two of three in the series against the NL Central leaders and went 4-3 overall this season. The Phillies have won

nine straight season series against the Reds. The Reds went 32-16 while Votto was out due to two operations related to a torn meniscus in his left knee. Votto finished 2-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout for Cincinnati, which lost a series for just the third time in 16 matchups since the All-Star break (11-3-2). Jay Bruce homered for the fourth consecutive game, but it wasn’t enough to rally the Reds in the ninth inning.

Bride resists attempt to keep stepmom in shadows DEAR ABBY: “Disappearing Stepmother’s” June 9 letter brought back memories of my stepdaughter “Amy’s” wedding. Her mother also tried her best to prevent us from being involved. However, Amy included all four of her parents in the wedding. Dad and Stepdad walked her down the aisle together, and her mom and I lit the bride’s candle together (though I’m sure she gritted her teeth when she did it). The bride needs to develop a backbone and stand up to her mother. The dad (who’s paying for half the wedding) should at least put his foot down about the guest list, and invite whomever he and his wife would like to be there. Wedding photos can be of the two families separately, including the stepmom. Otherwise, resentment will linger and

poison the relationship between stepmom and stepdaughter. Abigail -ANVan Buren O T H E R S T E P Dear Abby MOM DEAR STEPMOM: I encouraged “Disappearing” to attend the wedding to support her stepdaughter and inject a dose of reality into the “fantasy,” and readers were quick to share their views: DEAR ABBY: I, too, am stepmom to two beautiful young women whose mother harbors animosity toward me and my husband. When the girls were kids she filled their heads with lies about us. Their father and I remained noncritical, loving and constant. There were some rocky

years, but my stepdaughters and I have made it through. When the younger one was married two years ago, she did a beautiful job including me. Her mother spent the wedding day spewing vile lies about us to anyone who’d listen, and is still bitter these 26 years later. The girls see their mother as she is and do not let her affect their relationship with us. For this I credit my husband, who never tolerated her ill treatment of me. Stepmoms are not looking to be in the spotlight or take anyone’s place. But we are an important part of the modern family and should be treated with the honor and respect we deserve. -- MADE IT THROUGH DEAR ABBY: I work in the wedding industry, and all too frequently I see the engaged couple manipulated by a parent

in order to hurt the former spouse and alienate the stepparent. It is the bane of my professional existence. They cause so much stress for the couple that I’ve had brides break down and cry in my office and choose to elope rather than deal with the drama. Parents must realize that their children are loved by many people, and the best gift they can give them on their wedding day is to set aside differences and old grudges in order to support the couple as they begin their marriage. -- FRUSTRATED WEDDING PLANNER DEAR ABBY: My husband’s former wife has been a huge challenge for me, even showing up at our small wedding ceremony and slapping me in the face. The children were all there and I kept the evening going by hug-

ging them and saying I was sorry their mom was so upset. Now, as I watch these grown kids and their kids making their way through life, I am proud to have been part of showing them what a solid, loving family can be without alienation and selfishness. -- BARBARA IN ILLINOIS DEAR ABBY: I sympathize with “Disappearing,” having myself been ignored at “blended” family events, including weddings. I am also conveniently excluded from family photos. I deal with all of this by staying in the background during events. The gathering is not about me. My stepkids are simply trying to keep the drama caused by their mother to a minimum. They would never hear the end of it from her, and she has been known to go off in public. I know they appreciate

my quiet approach because, when not in their mother’s presence, they treat me with kindness, love and humor. -- MARCIA IN VIRGINIA DEAR ABBY: First wives hold the upper hand in many instances. It’s something you never really get used to -- you just live with it. When your husband’s daughter matures and is a mom herself, things may change. They did for me. Take the high road and always do the right thing. That first wife is clearly traveling on a lower path. -- SURVIVOR IN ALABAMA (Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

Horoscopes BY HOLIDAY MATHIS People talk about the benefits of slowing down to “smell the roses,” but the events that actually cause such slow downs -- traffic, long lines, missed connections, etc. -- are often met with annoyance. Venus offers us a challenge as she slips into the “show me” sign of Leo. Walk the talk. Beauty is all around at every moment, ripe for the taking. ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll awaken with a new perspective. It’s been a while since you were this objective about your own life. When you really think about it, you rather like where you’ve landed. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You may have to explain this to someone: Just because you are privy to information doesn’t mean it’s yours. It belongs to the person who gave it to you and is not to be given away to another. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your awareness will be heightened. You won’t assume that everyone is looking out for everyone else. You’ll look out for you and yours. Sometimes you have to be your own biggest fan. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re excellent at operating with your team. You try to see things as your team members might see them. Also, you’ll have the overriding sense that you are stronger together than you are apart. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll show people that you care and demonstrate exemplary character through simple matters of respect -- for instance, turning off your phone to give your full attention to the people you’re with.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll experience an increased sense of purpose, and yet your purpose may be strangely difficult to put into words. Try anyhow. The exercise will focus you powerfully. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). No one will give you time for reflection; it’s something you’ll have to steal. Decide how you’re going to spend your time, and let everyone know what you’re doing. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll see people constantly during this busy day. You’ll move in and out of environments, always saving some of your energy for the next meeting. Make notes as you go because you’re not likely to remember all of the details. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Someone will recognize your talent. This person also may have an opinion as to which way you should take your gifts. It’s worth a listen, but if a ride on the bandwagon is offered, don’t jump. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). Take action, and you’ll also be taking control. Take responsibility, and you’ll also be taking ownership. Take offense, and you’ll also be taking time and energy away from your success mission. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18). If someone badmouths another person, they will, if given a reason, do the same to you. Your wise instincts kick in. You recognize and avoid toxic people and behaviors. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It’s true that you’re adept at reading body language, but that’s not the entire reason you’re hyper-aware of someone’s opinion of you

(even though the person never voices it). You also can read minds. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 6). You respond well to challenge and will do amazing things under pressure in 2013. Capricorn and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 2, 15, 49, 3 and 10. ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “My mom and dad are about to get the shock of their lives. I am 18 and have decided that I don’t want to go to college yet. I want to pursue music. I’ve played guitar and harp since I was 10, and I’ve been told I’m good. I’ve started writing songs in private. I want to study music and see where it will take me. Maybe I’ll be famous. How should I break the news to them? What do I tell them? I’m a Libra.” Libra people are artists at heart, and they harmonize in many ways with the rest of the world. Music has obvious appeal, partly because musicians quite literally play for a living. But make no mistake: As a profession, music is about as competitive as it gets. A very small percentage of musicians make their living solely from music. Having a plan will be crucial to your success. Where will you live? How will you support yourself? Will your parents allow you to live at home while you study music? If so, how will you contribute to the household? I encourage you to tap into your innate sense of balance. Many musicians have part-time jobs that allow them to focus on music while still being able to support themselves. CELEBRITY PROFILES: Virgo comedian and best-

Today in history Today is Thursday, Sept. 6, the 250th day of 2012. There are 116 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History On Sept. 6, 1997, a public funeral was held for Princess Diana at Westminster Abbey in London, six days after her death in a car crash in Paris.

On this date In 1757, the Marquis de Lafayette, the French hero of the American Revolution, was born in Auvergne, France. In 1861, Union forces led by Gen. Ulysses S.

Grant occupied Paducah, Ky., during the Civil War. In 1901, President William McKinley was shot and mortally wounded by anarchist Leon Czolgosz at the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, N.Y. (McKinley died eight days later.) In 1916, the first self-service grocery store, Piggly Wiggly, was opened in Memphis, Tenn., by Clarence Saunders. In 1939, the Union of South Africa declared war on Germany. In 1948, Princess Juliana of the Netherlands was inaugurated as queen, two days after the abdication of

her mother, Queen Wilhelmina. In 1952, Canadian television broadcasting began in Montreal. In 1966, South African Prime Minister Hendrik Verwoerd was stabbed to death by an apparently deranged page during a parliamentary session in Cape Town. In 1970, Palestinian guerrillas seized control of three U.S.-bound jetliners. (Two were later blown up on the ground in Jordan, along with a London-bound plane hijacked on Sept. 9; the fourth plane was destroyed on the ground in Egypt. No hostages were harmed.)

selling author Jeff Foxworthy hosts the popular game show that asks “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?” And though he’s a redneck humorist, his masterful comic approach exudes a sophisticated artistry that only can come from years of experience and practice. Foxworthy was born when Mercury, Venus and Uranus were in the sign of entertainment.

The book the movie is based on, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Wettest County in the World,â&#x20AC;? was written by Matt Bondurant, a grandson of one of the Bondurant brothers. His book focuses on the three Bondurant brothers who were 1â &#x201E;2,Shia

involved in bootlegging moonshine in Franklin County. Forrest Bondurant (Tom Hardy) is the oldest brother followed by Howard, (Jason Clarke) who has an extremely hot temper, The youngest brother is Jack (Shia LaBeouf). Jack enjoys having a good time without fully understanding the consequences of not paying attention to what is going on around him. Forrest is the leader of the Bondurant family and has a reputation of being a fearless individual. He definitely lives up to his status. When Maggie (Jessica Chastain), a city girl, arrives in town looking for work, she takes a strong liken to Forrest. For awhile, Forrest appears not to be interested but gradually he begins to

Cricket (Dane DeHaan), crippled by rickets as a child is a good old boy just trying to do his job. He is Jackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best friend and accomplice in Jackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bootlegging schemes. Jack has a crush on Bertha (Mia Wasikowska), a preacherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter. He decides to attend a service at her fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s church but has had too much fruit of the vine. What happens is not pleasant to the congregation. Special agent Charlie

(Guy Pearce) is a nemesis to Forrest and his brothers, and a horrible, despicable person. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lawlessâ&#x20AC;? is high voltage entertainment containing strong violence. As the story progresses and some very horrifying incidents take place, tension prevails and lasts throughout the film. From the toughness and seemingly invincibility of Forrest to Jack trying to prove himself to his brothers it moves with white lightning speed -pun intended.

In order to sell or make illegal booze in Franklin County, some local law enforcement individuals have to be compensated to look the other way. City thugs also move in for their take but as Forrest tells others, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are Bondurants and we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lay down for anybody.â&#x20AC;? He speaks in a mountain brogue that says he really means it. The audience will notice some bootleggers in the movie using a radiator to make the whiskey, adding battery acid to the brew. This created lead poisoning or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jake Legâ&#x20AC;? which a lot of individuals suffered from when they drunk the home brew. It could cause death, paralysis or brain damage. By the end of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lawlessâ&#x20AC;? the audience will want special agent Charlie to

get what he deserves. The cinematography is exceptional and the tension about as tight as it can get. Be prepared for some very graphic and gruesome scenes. Still, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lawlessâ&#x20AC;? is a well-told story about a legendary family who became a part of the violence and bootlegging activity in â&#x20AC;&#x153;the wettest county in the world.â&#x20AC;?

Evading Isaacâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s remnants during summertimeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last hurrah Not that I should complain -- what with all those poor folks down in New Orleans who had water up to their roofs. But in our corner of McNairy County, Tenn., our grass is scorched, our dogwoods drooping and we got only one downpour last Friday that lasted about three minutes. Meanwhile, the massive aftermath of Hurricane Isaac was heading north into Arkansas and Kansas -- straight toward our familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cabin in the Ozarks, where Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d promised to join my sisters and my brother for a get-together. Hmmm. At its best, Labor Day weekend is not my favorite time to go. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Summertimeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Last Hurrah. Folks throng the river, families clambering over the Big Falls, jabbering above the roar of the water at so high a pitch we hear them way down at

our dock, one canoe after another intermittently shooting the rapids Ryland with an Bruhwiler e x c i t i n g whoosh or Columnist nosediving into the bubbling depths. Whatever, the result is always accompanied by shrieks, exultant or despairing. The river is crowded and it is loud. On the other hand, thunderstorms might drive us all inside. I thought about being cooped up in a small cabin for a long weekend and emailed my sister: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Are we sure we want to do this?â&#x20AC;? She replied, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of course we do!â&#x20AC;? So while my husband stayed home with the critters, I headed off to

Memphis, where I joined up with my brother Dean on Friday, and we rolled on over the Mississippi River bridge and into Arkansas, a pleasant drive except for a patch of rain so hard Dean drove down the middle of the deserted highway, making sure we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go plunging into the ditches along its side. Our sister Bay had reached the cabin before us. Saturday was warm and windy and cloudy, but not wet. After a leisurely morning drinking coffee, frying omelettes (and admiring the bream our brother had caught while we sisters slept), we did a supermarket run to stock up on food. Then I toodled into town to go â&#x20AC;&#x153;antique-ingâ&#x20AC;? as Dean and Bay biked off on a winding trek to Cherokee Village, five miles away. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d hardly gotten going before they no-

         

 

ticed ragged cloud formations in the west. Looked like those things might swoop down and swallow something. It began to sprinkle, so they peddled hard, thinking theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d find shelter farther on. But the clouds moved on to the north and east, and they breathed easier. Still, they made it home six minutes faster than theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever done that run. Meanwhile, our sister ThaĂŻs and her husband were wending their way from Kentucky. Heard the eery rowr-er-row of sirens as they passed through town after town. Radio reported a tornado had just been sighted on the ground at Crowleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ridge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where is Crowleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ridge?â&#x20AC;? Sean asked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just passed it,â&#x20AC;? ThaĂŻs said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A few seconds ago.â&#x20AC;? While my siblings were

evading Isaac, I was drifting through my favorite antique mall, each stall a miniature museum of Americana. A CD of bluegrass music twanged away in the background. The aroma of something I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite identify (sorta nutty, sorta sweet) wafted from a burning candle. Heard an old lady exclaim: â&#x20AC;&#x153;One hundred and nineteen dollars! Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got that set in my kitchen!â&#x20AC;? She looked up from a stack of three pink and white Pyrex bowls (the square sort, with matching lids) and shook her head, astonished. I spent all of one dollar on a water glass etched with fleur-de-lis, then, at the last moment, was seduced by a quaint New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;noisemaker.â&#x20AC;? Three bucks. Too much, but Momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s birthday is coming and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll love it. Got back to the cabin

just before ThaĂŻs and Sean pulled in, stiff from their long drive, and Dean and Bay pulled up on their bikes, sweaty and jubilant. Dragged on our swimsuits for The Swim to the Falls, chatting and laughing and swapping stories. That Spring River water was uncomfortably chilly on this grey, windy afternoon. But we were the only folks in sight. The two-legged kind, I mean. We shared the falls with one short, brown heron. Passed a banded water snake, pretty head lifted above the riverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surface, pressing hard for shore. Green trees. Tumbling waters. Somber skies. All ours.
