2011 Christmas Basket Fund ‘A Community Tradition’

Donations to basket fund near $27,000 The spirit of giving this Christmas season is alive and well in the Alcorn County area. Donations continue to arrive for the 16th annual Corinth Rotary Club/Daily Corinthian Christmas Basket Fund. A $25,000 fundraising goal was set so 1,100 food baskets could be given to local families on Saturday, Dec. 10. It was a record number of baskets and the community has responded in a big way. Baskets were given away based upon the faith the goal would be reached and the faith has now turned into fact with the goal not only being reached, but surpassed. So far $26,930 has been raised. Donations include $100 from A.H. Taylor; and $50 from Lora Ann Huff in memory of Leroy Hopkins. Donations will continue to be accepted through Christmas Day and are a perfect time to make a tribute to a loved one. Contributions to the Christmas Basket Fund can be made “in honor of” or “in memory of” a special person or persons. The tribute will be published in the Daily Corinthian. Donations can be brought by the newspaper office or mailed to: Daily Corinthian, Attn.: Christmas Basket Fund, P.O. Box 1800, Corinth, MS 38835.

CT-A needs young actors for 2 plays BY BOBBY J. SMITH bjsmith@dailycorinthian.com

Corinth Theatre-Arts is looking for young actors to take the stage in two upcoming productions. “We’re looking for youth of all ages through 19,” said CT-A Managing Director Tommy Ledbetter. “No preparation or experience is required — all you’ve got to do is show up for the audition and read a page of the script.” Auditions for “The Fisherman and His Wife” and “The Emperor’s New Clothes” will be held Monday, Jan. 2, and Tuesday, Jan. 3, beginning at 4 p.m. at the Crossroads Playhouse. Tryouts for both productions will be held on both dates. “The Fisherman and His Wife” is based on one of the Brothers Grimm’s most famous fairy tales, the story of a good man content with very little and the destruction caused by his dissatisfied wife after an encounter with a magical fish with the power to grant wishes. The cast will require approximately 12 actors. Sponsored by Northside Mini Storage and LINK, “The Fisherman and His Wife will be performed on Friday, Feb. 24, at 7:30 p.m. It is also a traveling production, and will be taken to several schools in Please see CT-A | 3A

Port authority lands grants Funds will build spec building, railroad spur in industrial park BY BRANT SAPPINGTON bsappington@dailycorinthian.com

BURNSVILLE — A pair of improvement projects in the works at the Northeast Mississippi Waterway Industrial Park could pay big dividends for future economic development in the region.

The Yellow Creek Port Authority has received a pair of grants from the Mississippi Department of Transportation Multi-Modal Fund that will be combined with port authority funds to construct a spec building and begin the first phase of construction to connect a rail

line to the barge terminal at the industrial park. TAP Alliance members say the projects will greatly improve the attractiveness of the industrial park to potential industries. The group, which represents economic development organizations and local

governments in Tishomingo, Alcorn and Prentiss counties, is focused on working together to bring new industry and employers to the region by combining resources and strategies for the benefit of all involved. Please see GRANTS | 2A

Retirement of voting printers OK’d BY JEBB JOHNSTON jjohnston@dailycorinthian.com

The U.S. Department of Justice has given approval for Alcorn County to stop using the external printer modules attached to the county’s electronic voting machines. Abandonment of the printer attachment has been a trend among Mississippi counties that use electronic voting machines. Prentiss County is among those

that have already stopped using the extra paper trail. The printers were intended to give voters confidence that their vote was recorded by allowing them to look at it on paper, but election officials believe it is rarely utilized by voters. Also, “If you have any trouble, that’s where 99 percent of it is — usually a paper jam,” said Circuit Clerk Joe Caldwell. If the printer runs out of pa-

per before a voter has finished casting his vote, the voter has to wait for the printer module to be reloaded. Removing the printer will reduce those types of delays, Caldwell said. Caldwell said he doesn’t know of any problems that have arisen in counties that have stopped using them. “We still are going to have a paper printout,” he said. “There is a printer made into

the system.” The printer module is an optional add-on that the state purchased when many counties were moving to the electronic touch-screen machines in order to comply with federal law. It allows voters to see their votes through a clear plastic window on the module attached to the right side of the Please see PRINTERS | 2A

The Corinth Civitans are doing their part to bring Christmas joy to a group of local children. The Corinth Civitans Club recently held its annual Kids Day — a day dedicated to helping local children have a special Christmas. “Kids Day is one of my favorite times of the year. The Corinth Civitan theme this year is ‘Enriching lives through service’ — what better way to serve the community,” said Civitans President Tina Bugg. “Also it is a great way to put the theme into action by helping share the true meaning of Christmas by helping children.” It all started back in 1976 or ’77, remembered Tommy Stine, a long-time Civitan and current board member. The Civitans wanted to do something to bring a brighter Christmas

to area kids who needed it. It began with two Alcorn County kids and a clothes-buying trip to Belk. This year the Civitans brought their brand of Christmas joy to 12 children, all in kindergarten and first grade at schools in Corinth and Alcorn County, and all chosen by their teachers. The event was held Dec. 14. The days begins when the kids arrive at the Civitans’ regular meeting place, Hillandale Country Club. “We feed them a nice lunch — this year it was chicken tenders and hamburgers — and make them the center of attention,” Stine explained. Right about the time lunch ends, Santa Claus arrives, bringing sacks of “goodies” for the kids and a willingness to sit for pictures and listen to Christmas wishes. Please see CIVITANS | 2A

GRANTS: ‘It’s great to have land, but without infrastructure it’s an uphill battle,’ Alliance president says CONTINUED FROM 1A

TAP member and Corinth Alliance President Gary Chandler said the rail spur project will begin the creation of approximately one mile of rail line, the first step in connecting NorfolkSouthern’s nearby line with the barge terminal. The total cost of the entire project will be approximately $3-4 million. Phase I of the rail spur project is being funded through $700,000 from MDOT’s multimodal fund, matched by $300,000 from the Port Authority. Phase I is expected to be completed prior to June 2013 and will include

alignment of the rail bed and railed ballast. It is a first step toward the eventually construction of the entire spur. Chandler termed the project a significant first step in the right direction toward making the industrial park even more appealing to potential new industries. “It’s great to have land, but without infrastructure it’s an uphill battle,” he said. Rail access to the terminal is considered key to meeting the needs of many industries that might consider locating in the area. The port authority has also obtained funds

through the MDOT program to be matched by its own funds for construction of a 20,000-squarefoot spec building with the capacity for the installation of a 20-ton crane near the barge terminal in the park. The project is being funded through a $400,000 award to the port authority from the MDOT program, matched by $400,000 of port authority funds. Site work on the project is complete and the port authority is preparing to award the construction project. The building is slated to be complete by June of 2012. The building will be designed to be easily expanded or modified to

meet the needs of any potential industrial client. Chandler said the TAP Alliance has worked closely with the port authority on both projects and is thrilled to see the work being done on the industrial park. He noted that a study commissioned by TAP this year pointed to the industrial park as a key site for industrial development in the region. He said they are continuing to work on new ways to market the site to industries with the goal of bringing new jobs to the region. “The TAP Alliance and Yellow Creek Port Authority are ‘all in’ in terms of working together to pur-

sue necessary infrastructure and to aggressively market the Northeast Mississippi Waterway Industrial Park site in Burnsville. Without the motivation of the YCPA director and its board in seeking and matching these funds, these two projects would not be on the table. In order for our region to thrive and grow, it is imperative that we continue to build on this spirit of cooperation and keep the positive momentum going. Only good things will come of it,” said Chandler. Tishomingo County Development Association Executive Director and TAP Alliance Member Gary Matthews said these types of infrastructure improvements are key to successfully recruiting industry in today’s climate. “Industrial prospects today expect a ready to build on site,” he said. He praised the port au-

thority for stepping up and being progressive in improving the industrial park to make it more attractive. Matthews emphasized that this type of effort is a long-term process that may not result in immediate successes, but will pave the way for the possibility of major success in the future. TAP Alliance member and Prentiss County Development Association Executive Director Leon Hays said they are grateful for the work being done by the port authority at the site. “Yellow Creek Port is a jewel of the area. It’s something we’re all looking to promote,” he said. Hays said TAP is working together to make the area more attractive and competitive in recruiting industry and this project is an example of an effort that can put the area in a more competitive position.

— a spotter and a driver — to maneuver their robot in a series of challenges. While they finished four places away from moving on to the next round, the BearBots quickly shifted their focus to plans for next year’s robotics competitions. “The kids were already making plans and brainstorming in the bus on the way back,” said Weaver. “The minute we finished, they started getting ready for next year.” The BearBots earned this month’s trip to Auburn University by finishing second in the Mississippi BEST Robotics challenge at Mississippi State University on Oct. 28. The focus on robotics is a new thing for Alcorn Central. Weaver started the after-School robotics program on Sept. 17. With the help of her husband Paul, a retired engineer,

and Joel Byrom, father of the BearBots’ Isaac, Weaver and the BearBots have quickly moved from beginners to contenders. They look to 2012 with plans of working on a website and expanding the program to encompass Tshirt design and displays as they go for the more comprehensive Best Award. Another focus is the job of recruiting younger students to the team. Weaver and the BearBots wish to thank John Mocny and their sponsors at Caterpillar for the company’s “more than generous” sponsorship; and the West Corinth Subway. “We are most grateful for those sponsors,” said Weaver. They also wish to thank Rodney Hopper at the Alcorn Career and Technology Center; ACHS Assistant Principal Lisa Wigginton; Superintendent Stacy Suggs and other members of the administration.

Jackson County was the first to back out of using the printers in 2007. Federal law does not require a voter-verified paper trail. Some states have such laws, but Mississippi is not among them.

commissioners and poll workers is that few voters ever look at the paper printout. The external printer is not used in tallying votes. The county will see a cost savings of about $6,000 per election for the paper rolls and related expenses, the circuit clerk said. The Alcorn County election commissioners wanted the change to happen after this year’s countywide election. Next on the election calendar is the congressional and presidential primary election in March.

Following the Santa session, the Civitans dismiss the meeting at Hillandale and meet the kids at Belk. The kids ride with their teachers, who picked out clothes for their students the day before at the department store. After the stop at Belk, they go over to Joe’s Shoes for new footwear. Each child gets approximately $100 worth of shoes and clothing. Stine said the real value, before discounts from the stores, is more like $300 apiece. When the shopping is done the school day is over, and the kids ride

home in school buses or with their teachers. The Civitans members get to know the true joy of Christmas — the joy of giving. “We enjoy that so much,” Stine said. “It makes my Christmas to be a part of it.” The Civitans thank Corinth’s Belk and Joe’s Shoes for allowing them a discount for the Kids Day program and the community for supporting the Civitans’ efforts through fundraisers and donations. “This is a tradition that I and the club truly enjoy and are blessed every year,” said Bugg.

Corinth Catholic Church founded by Confederate priest he Rev. John Baptist Mouton, a former Confederate chaplain, was the first resident Catholic priest in Corinth. John Baptist Mouton was born at Maumusso, Loire Inferieure, Frances on March 7, 1831. He studied at the seminary in Nantes and was a pupil of the famous Pere Loyson. He was ordained at Nantes on Jan. 31, 1859. When Father Mouton left France for Natchez, Mississippi, he was going to what was for him, a “foreign” mission field. He reached Natchez May 2, 1859. After studying English for a time at Sulphur Springs, Father Mouton began his missionary journeys in the eastern part of Mississippi. He is sometimes called “the pioneer of the faith” in Northeast Mississippi because he served so many towns and communities in that area. Father Mouton’s missionary journeys extended from Jasper and Smith counties to Tennessee. In traveling through the sparsely-settled areas, he sometimes had difficulty finding food and shelter from the wintery winds for himself and his horse, “Jim.” The priest was sent to Corinth for a time in 1862 when it became apparent that a battle would be fought there or nearby. He received a chaplain’s commission in November, 1862. During and after the Civil War he served elsewhere in Mississippi until 1872 when he helped construct Vicki a little frame church in Corinth and it’s first resident pastor. The Roach became building was 65 by 30 feet and was Family located on the southeast corner of the Branches intersection of Foote and Madison streets. The church was called St. John the Baptist. There were cedar trees in the yard. In 1899 the church, which was considered beyond repair, was torn down and the lot sold. Father Mouton is known to have been pastor in Corinth as late as 1875-1876. In 1877 he was sent to Yazoo City, where he died of yellow fever on Oct. 22, 1879. He was one of the group of six priests and 16 sisters who died of yellow fever in the Diocese of Natchez, during the epidemic of that year. Father Mouton is buried in Glenwood cemetery at Yazoo City. On his tomb are the words “The good shepherd givith his life for his sheep.” The sources for this brief account are many and varied, though the main source was certain records preserved by the Diocese of Natchez, Jackson. These were examined by the writer through the courtesy of the Most Reverend R.O. Gerow, Bishop of the Diocese. An interesting postscript was added to this writer’s notes on Father Mouton in 1959 when she learned the priest’s letters from Mississippi to

BY ROGER SIMON With the glut of debate stories safely behind us until human beings actually cast votes in Iowa on Jan. 3, the media now shift their concentration to what really counts: polls. Polls are predictions of the future. They are crystal balls. They are magic. Pollsters try to deny this, humbly murmuring about how their magic is a mere “snapshot in time.” But we don’t believe this. Pollsters are wizards, shamans, diviners. They toss numbers around the way astragalomancers once tossed bones to foretell events to come. Increasingly, however, pollsters find it difficult to get people to talk to them. This should not be a surprise. Pollsters call us during inconvenient times when they expect us to be home (the dinner hour, for example) and then can ask all sorts of personal questions about our age, sex, religion, party affiliation, income and whom we intend to vote for. I have never been called by a political pollster and don’t know anybody who has, but I know some pollsters, who assure me they don’t make the numbers up, and I believe them. Pollsters do get people to talk to them. Not vast numbers of people, but pollsters do not require vast numbers. A recent Washington Post-ABC News poll, which is highly respected, tells us that “Gingrich and Romney are each favored by 30 percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents.” Also, the “survey shows President Obama receiving his highest approval rating since March ... (and) the number who disapprove of his overall performance has dipped below 50 percent for the first time this fall.” We are a nation of nearly 313 million people. So how many people did the pollsters actually speak to? If you have extremely good eyes, you can find the answer in tiny type at the bottom of a chart: The Post-ABC poll was conducted by phone “among a random sample of 1,005 adults.” That represents 0.0003 percent of the nation at large. The poll does not tell us how many are registered voters, though it does say in a sidebar story: “The president leads a potential race against former House speaker Newt Gingrich (Ga.) by 51 to 43 percent among registered voters — in part because of an eight-point advantage among independents.” So the poll must have spoken to registered voters and independents, but we don’t know how many. And, frankly, who cares? Most people do not read the fine print. As I said, this poll has a very good reputation, and I “believe” the results in that I believe they were calculated without any agenda. But in the vast, murky world known as reality, are Gingrich and Mitt Romney really tied 30-30? And, if they are, what different does it make? The primary is not a national contest, but a series of state contests by which the winning candidate amasses a majority of the approximately 2,288 delegates to the Republican National Convention. Does Obama really lead Gingrich by 8 percentage points in a (currently) imaginary matchup? Gingrich’s drop in the polls — one shows him in third place in Iowa behind Ron Paul and Romney — and Obama’s rise have become big media talking points over the last few days. There is little real political analysis anymore. Instead, there are journalists who read polls and try to explain the results: Newt’s drop? Attack ads by his opponents are damaging him, people are learning more about him and don’t like what they are learning. Obama’s rise? The 21st paragraph of a sidebar story to the Post-ABC poll contains a figure that may be of critical importance: “The new survey finds that most Americans are optimistic about their personal finances, even though gloom continues about prospects for the national economy.” People who are personally optimistic are the kind of people who do not change horses in midstream, especially if they feel the stream is strewn with rocks. You can challenge the accuracy of polls. But you can’t challenge their influence.

In the debate, Paul went on to warn against a push “to declare war on 1.2 billion Muslims,” as if a country that has resorted to force of arms to save Muslims from starvation (Somalia), from ethnic cleansing (Bosnia, Kosovo) and from brutal dictators (Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya) is bristling with an undifferentiated hostility toward all Muslims. This isn’t an expression of an anti-interventionism so much as a smear. It goes beyond opposition to American foreign policy to a poisonous view of America itself. Paul never knows when to stop. He lets his suspicion of centralized power slip into paranoia worthy of a second-rate Hollywood thriller about government malevolence. In January 2010, he declared: “There’s been a coup, have you heard? It’s the CIA coup. The CIA runs everything, they run the military.” On his latest appearance on the radio show of the conspiracymongering host Alex Jones, he opined that the alleged Iranian plot to kill the Saudi ambassador on U.S. soil was “another propaganda stunt.” He exclaimed that the latest defense bill authorizing the indefinite deten-

tion of enemy combatants will “literally legalize martial law” (yes, “literally”). Paul’s promiscuousness with his ideological bedfellows — he hails members of the John Birch Society for their fine educations and respect for the Constitution — accounts for the disgrace he brought on himself with his newsletters in the 1980s and 1990s. As journalist James Kirchick exposed, they were full of race-baiting and rancid Israel-bashing. Paul maintains he didn’t know what was being written in the first person under his name. To this day, he says he doesn’t know who wrote the copy. Has he asked? During some dozen Republican debates, not one journalist thought to query Paul about the newsletters that would be disqualifying for anyone else. Iowa caucus-goers are protective of their pre-eminent place in the nominating process. If they deliver victory to a history-making Ron Paul, no one should take them as seriously again.

are being made the victims of Muslim pogroms. And as with Christianity in the 16th and 17th centuries, Islam is a house divided, between Shia and Sunni. If demography is destiny, the future would seem to belong to Islam. Consider. The six most populous Muslim nations — Bangladesh, Egypt, Indonesia, Pakistan, Nigeria and Turkey — had a total population of 242 million in 1950. By 2050, that 242 million will have quintupled to 1.36 billion people. Meanwhile, Europe’s fertility rate has been below zero population growth since the 1970s. Old Europe is dying, and its indigenous peoples are being replaced by Third World immigrants, millions of them Muslim. Yet there is another side to the Islamic story. In international test scores of high school students in reading, math and science, not one Muslim nation places in the top 30. Take away oil and gas, and from Algeria to Iran these nations would have little to offer the world. Iran would have to fall back on exports of carpets, caviar and pistachio nuts. Not one Muslim nation is a member of the G-8 economic powers or the BRICfour emerging powers — Brazil, Russia, India, China. In the 20th century, the world saw the rise of the Asian “tigers” — South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong. Where are the Muslim tigers? A few years back, the gross domestic product of the entire Arab world was

only equal to Spain’s. Take away oil and gas, and its exports were equal to Finland’s. Measured by manufacturing power, the Islamic world, though more populous, cannot hold a candle to China. And while Islam was a civilization superior in some ways to the West from the 7th to 17th century, somewhere that world began to stagnate and decline. So the question arises: If Islamism is capturing Libya, Tunisia and Egypt, and will capture other Muslim nations as the Arab Spring advances, where is the historic evidence that these Islamic regimes can convert their states into manufacturing and military powers? Where is the evidence that Islamist regimes, such as Sudan and Iran, can deliver what their peoples demanded when they brought down the dictators? And if, like the communist regimes of the 20th century, they cannot deliver the good life that the rebels sought when they dumped the tyrants, what will follow Islamism, when Islamism inevitably fails? In the long run, does Islamism really own the future of the Islamic world? Or has the clock begun to run on the fundamentalists as well? Patrick J.

ROACH: After pursuit, general broke up army into smaller commands CONTINUED FROM 3A

Associated Press

FEMA to give partial credit for substandard levees JACKSON — The Federal Emergency Management Agency is taking comments on a proposal that would give partial credit for substandard levees in drawing flood zones and figuring flood insurance rates. It’s not clear how much relief the plan, open for comment until Jan. 30, would offer. But it’s a break from past policy, where substandard levees were treated as if they didn’t exist. FEMA is reassessing levees nationwide, partly as a result of 2005’s Hurricane Katrina. As problems turn up, the old rules had threatened to hamper development in some areas, raise federal flood insurance premiums, and force more people to buy flood insurance.

Alcorn seeks grant for notification system CORINTH — Alcorn County has applied to the state for money to install a countywide emergency notification system. Emergency Management Director Ricky Gibens said that it would take $50,000-$60,000 to install hardware and software. Corinth city government and schools have an emergency notification system in place. The system sends voice or text telephone messages to anyone who registers. Households would purchase the receivers through a local retailer for about $30 or less. Gibens says the grant would help provide receivers to underprivileged and elderly people. Through the system county residents could be alerted to weather emergencies, derailments, floods, wildfires, law enforcement emergencies and even notices like road closures.

Racial bias case returned for trial ABDERDEEN — A federal appeals court has overturned the dismissal of a Clay County woman’s racial discrimination lawsuit against a Starkville bank. The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans on Wednesday sent the case back to federal court in Mississippi for trial. Carol Vaughn alleged in her lawsuit that she was fired by Woodforest Bank because she is white. A Mississippi judge dismissed the case, saying Vaughn did not have enough proof that her termination was racially motivated. The 5th Circuit said a jury, not the judge, “must decide whether Vaughn’s race was the real reason she was fired.”

Federals Occupy Corinth (Part 1) Source: Alcorn County Family History Volume I On June 1st the Federal forces, under Gen. Halleck (who had commanded the Federal Army since Shiloh) marched into and across town to Corona College. There, they met Mrs. Gaston, who had remained to protect the property. She disclaimed any knowledge of which road the Confederates had taken and objected when a United States Flag was hoisted to replace the yellow hospital flag which the college had flown since April. Gen. Halleck ordered Gen. John Pope to pursue the Confederates. A Union Cavalry column

caught up with the Confederate rear guard in Tuscumbia bottom late in the afternoon. They met strong resistance. The Confederates crossed the river and burned the bridge leaving sufficient force to prevent reconstruction. Next morning the Federals went up stream to a narrow place in the river, felled trees and crossed. While the artillery engaged the Confederates at the bridge, the infantry began a flanking movement. Seeing they were about to be trapped, the Confederates withdrew toward the south with the Federals continuing to press their rear. From Booneville,

Gen. John Pope wired for support; but Halleck replied, “The main object now is to get the enemy far enough south to relieve our railroads from danger of immediate attack. There is no object in bringing on a battle if this can be obtained without one. I think by showing a bold front for a day or two, the enemy will continue to retreat, which is all I desire.” Restrained by Gen. Halleck’s attitude, the Federals halted their pursuit at Twenty Mile Creek near Baldwyn. They remained there for eight days before returning to Corinth. When the pursuit ended, Gen. Halleck be-

gan to break up his army into smaller commands. Two divisions were sent north to Bolivar; two moved west into Memphis; and Buell was sent east toward to Chattanooga. One division was assigned to Corinth. Vicki Burress Roach is a professional genealogist and special columnist for the Daily Corinthian.

US concedes errors in Pakistani deaths BY LOLITA BALDOR Associated Press

WASHINGTON — After 10 years of war in Afghanistan, a persistent lack of trust between the U.S. and Pakistan still complicates operations along the critical Afghanistan border and was a key factor in the errant American airstrikes late last month that killed 24 Pakistani troops. U.S. officials on Thursday accepted some blame for the deadly incident that infuriated Pakistani leaders, prompting Pakistan to shut down key supply routes for the war and further eroding America’s already rocky relations with Islamabad. The Defense Department briefed reporters Thursday on the conclusions reached in its investigation into the November incident. But the U.S. did not

apologize, despite the embarrassing series of communications and coordination errors. And as of Thursday afternoon, it had not briefed Pakistani leaders on the results of the investigation. Pakistan refused to cooperate in the investigation. And the U.S. report — placing some of the blame on Islamabad — is likely to only increase their fury, hamper any hope of rebuilding the relationship and delay the opening of the supply routes. In a Pentagon briefing, Brig. Gen. Stephen Clark, an Air Force special operations officer who led the investigation, made it clear that U.S. forces were fired on first and acted in self-defense. But he acknowledged that efforts to determine who was firing on the U.S.

troops and whether there were friendly Pakistani forces in the area — the primary questions in any cross-border incident — failed because U.S. forces used inaccurate maps, were unaware of Pakistani border post locations and mistakenly provided the wrong location for the troops. There is “an overarching lack of trust between the two sides” that keeps them from giving each other specific details on troops or combat outpost locations, Clark said as he went through a blow-byblow account of the events that began late on Nov. 25 and continued overnight. U.S. and NATO commanders, Clark said, believe that some of their military operations have been compromised when they’ve given details and locations to the Pakistanis.

Walmart pulls formula after Missouri baby dies COLUMBIA, Mo. — Walmart and health officials awaited tests Thursday on a batch of powdered infant formula that was removed from more than 3,000 stores nationwide after a Missouri newborn who consumed it apparently died from a rare infection. The source of the bacteria that caused the infection has not been determined, but it occurs naturally in the environment and in plants such as wheat and rice. The most worrisome appearances have been in dried milk and powdered formula, which is why manufacturers routinely test for the germs. Walmart pulled the Enfamil Newborn formula from shelves as a precaution following the death of little Avery Cornett in the southern Missouri town of Lebanon. The formula has not been recalled, and the manufacturer said tests showed the batch was negative for the bacteria before it was shipped. Additional tests were under way. Customers who bought formula in 12.5-ounce cans with the lot number ZP1K7G have the option of returning them for a refund or exchange, Gee said.

The package Mary Beth Mauldin sent via the United States Postal Service last December finally arrived in Florida on Dec. 16 — one year and six days after it was mailed from Greenbrier, Ark. Mauldin visited the post office numerous times over the past year to try to track the package. The box contained a gift card and a flannel nightgown for her mother, Mary Lou Shelton. Post office officials who say they aren’t sure what caused the delay. Shelton also got some additional holiday cheer when her daughter’s Christmas card arrived this week, three days after it was mailed from Arkansas.

Darryl Worley song to raise money for wildlife ATHENS, Tenn. — Who knew that the song many are familiar with as the theme to “The Andy Griffith Show” had lyrics? The song is actually called “The Fishing Hole” and it has been re-recorded — words and all — by country singer Darryl Worley of Hardin County, Tenn. to benefit state wildlife agencies. Fans who want the song can text the word FISH to 50555. In exchange for a $10 donation added to their phone bill, they will receive a ringtone of “The Fishing Hole.” In Tennessee, the donations go to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Foundation to help repair damage from recent natural disasters. That includes restoring levees, replacing damaged equipment and re-stocking fish.

The government is expected to report that sales of new homes rose slightly in November. That would give homebuilders a third straight month of higher sales. It would also add to the positive vibes about housing of late â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the industry has improved enough that builders are more optimistic than at any time since May of 2010. But a rise in sales will do little to stop 2011 from eclipsing 2010 as the worst year for new home sales in a half century.

NETFLIX IS NOT NIRVANA Be careful with hot stocks â&#x20AC;&#x201D; you can get burned. Netflix (NFLX) lost nearly 80 percent of its value the second half of the year. That happened after it rose nearly 400 percent in 18 months. Netflix peaked at $304.79 in July. It fell as low as $62 this month. Another soaring growth stock, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR), lost two-thirds of its value in eight weeks after nearly quadrupling from January to September. Both stocks fell on negative news about the companies.

GOLD ISNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;T SUCH A SAFE HARBOR The price of gold reached a record $1,891.90 an ounce in August. At that point, it was up 33 percent for the year. Many investors believed gold was a safe place for their money. But speculative buying played a big role in its rise, and that left gold vulnerable to a sell-off. And sure enough, by Sept. 29, it had fallen 15 percent from its high to $1,608.50. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still up 13 percent for the year. It closed Thursday at $1,608.90.

INTERNATIONAL INVESTMENTS CAN IMPLODE Many investors ignored warning signs about Europeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s debt crisis a year ago. That came back to bite anyone who was heavily invested in international stocks. The Vanguard Total International Stock Index Fund (VGTSX) fell 25 percent between April and late September. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s down 18 percent this year. That doesn't mean you should ignore international stocks. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a long-term investor, this might be a good time to buy.

DON'T COUNT OUT TREASURYS Did you follow the lead of bond investor Bill Gross of PIMCO and dump Treasurys because the outlook was bad for U.S. debt? Oops. You lost out on good returns. Prices for Treasurys rose sharply starting in February as the weaker U.S. economy and Europeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s debt crisis sent investors looking for safe investments. Yields on bonds move in the opposite direction from their price. The strong demand for U.S. debt sent the yield on the 10-year Treasury to a record low of 1.71 percent in September. It was at 1.95 percent Thursday.

Are businesses spending more on big-ticket items such as computers, heavy machinery and other durable goods? That hasn't been the case this fall. New orders for manufactured durable goods fell in October and September, in part due to a big drop in demand for aircraft. Economists are looking for November's durable goods orders to be up 2 percent. Question is: Is this a one-off or the start of a wider lift in spending by business?

Blue Raiders down Ole Miss Associated Press

SOUTHAVEN — JT Sulton had to get an IV early in the second half. His Middle Tennessee teammate, Raymond Cintron, was plagued by foul trouble. Midway through the second half, however, the duo keyed a 13-1 run to spur Middle Tennessee to a 68-56 win over Mississippi Wednesday night. The game was played at the DeSoto Civic Center, five miles south of Memphis. “It was great to get JT back,” said Middle Tennessee coach Kermit Davis Jr., a Starkville native who coached Wednesday in front of some 75 family and friends who made the trip to Southaven from all over north Mississippi. “It was almost like JT came back with fresh legs. He really did. He had a lot of pop to him. Cintron got going. He’s a really good shooter. We kind of stayed with a couple of sets we were running. I just thought we were patient.” With the game tied at 43-43 with 9:42 left, Sulton’s dunk after Ole Miss committed a turnover on the other end of the floor gave the Blue Raiders (112) the lead for good. Cintron, who scored a gamehigh 18 points, made two free throws and then knocked down a 3-pointer on Middle Tennessee’s next two possessions to expand the lead to 50-43. “We absorbed some really difficult times against a really athletic team,” Davis said. “We moved the ball a lot better in the second half. We seemed to be a lot more unselfish in the second half.” After Jarvis Summers made a free throw to stop the run, Sulton spun a Nick Williams turnover into a dunk and then hit a jumper on the Blue Raiders’ next trip to push the lead to

Middle Tennessee led by as many as 16 points late in the second half. Ole Miss (9-3) never got closer than 10 points in the final 3 minutes. It was the second key

non-league win for the Blue Raiders, who beat UCLA earlier this season. “The UCLA win early was a big for us, but I think, given where we all live and what our fans watch,

to beat an Ole Miss team that has had some good wins will do a lot for our fan base in Murfreesboro,” Davis said. Please see MISS | 9A

Quirks abound in NBA schedule Bulldogs Associated Press

Carmelo Anthony’s return to Denver is delayed for another year. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade won’t be visiting Sacramento anytime soon. Fans in Chicago will only be seeing Kobe Bryant on television this season. The NBA sought competitive balance. What it got was schedule imbalance. One of the many consequences of the lockout, besides hundreds of lost games and hundreds of millions of lost dollars, was the tradition that every team plays in every NBA city at least once per season. That’s not the case this year. While teams will visit every other team in their own conference, they will only make trips to play nine clubs from the other side of the league instead of the usual 15. It’s one of many quirks of a 66-game schedule that, in a variety of ways, is not like any other in NBA history. “In some cases, the team business-type might complain that they didn’t get (to host) the Heat or the Lakers,” NBA Commissioner David Stern said. “While in the background, the coach is doing cartwheels. So it’s kind of an interesting dynamic.” There’s no shortage of those. Reigning scoring king Kevin Durant dropped 66 points

in New York earlier this year — alas, at Rucker Park, the fabled outdoor court and not Madison Square Garden. He and Oklahoma City won’t be going to play the Knicks this season. The NBA champion Dallas Mavericks won’t be going to Charlotte, nor will Durant’s Thunder, Bryant’s Lakers or the Spurs, and that will keep ticket dollars from finding Bobcats owner Michael Jordan’s pockets. Teams won’t be playing the same number of divisional games, so get ready for complaining should tiebreakers come into play when determining playoff seeding. And many small market teams will be miss out on some guaranteed sellouts against some elite clubs that might hurt in the standings but help with the bottom line. “That’s what happens when you have a lockout,” Durant said. When Magic coach Stan Van Gundy heard the league was putting together a 66game slate instead of the usual 82-game run, he figured the breakdown was simple: Play every team in your division four times, then face every other team home and away. That seemed easy enough. Instead, it’s complicated. “I’m not being critical of it,” Van Gundy said. “They’ve got a short period of time to play 66 games and there were a lot of factors they had to consider and I’m sure that they did it the

best way that they could.” True, but there is some zaniness. Atlanta takes a trip that has the Hawks going north, then south, then north, then west, then east, then west and then home again, all in the span of nine days. Cleveland has a ninegame February homestand. San Antonio goes nearly four weeks without a home game, as it does each year because the rodeo takes over the arena. The Kings close the first half of their schedule with 20 of 28 away from Sacramento, daunting for a team desperate to keep fans engaged while trying to get a new arena. Denver plays nine in a row at home in one stretch, then immediately hits the road for seven straight. But there’s no Anthony homecoming in Denver. “Did it bother me? Not really,” said Anthony, now with the Knicks. “I mean, I would love to go back and play there. The reaction I would get, who knows? I might get some boos, I might get some claps, but it’d have been fun.” Minnesota coach Rick Adelman was thrilled to see his club opens with six of seven at home. And then he looked who those early opponents are — the first four clubs to visit the Timberwolves are Oklahoma City, Miami, Dallas and San Antonio. Please see NBA | 9A

coast past Demons Associated Press

JACKSON — DeVille Smith weaved through some defenders midway through the second half and then looked up toward the basket to survey his options. Sure enough, Arnett Moultrie was cruising toward the hoop. It wasn’t surprising. The big man had been around the basket all game. Smith lofted a pass toward the 6-foot-11 Moultrie, who jumped and slammed home the alley-oop with two hands. It was another easy bucket for Moultrie and No. 18 Mississippi State as the Bulldogs coasted to an 82-67 victory Thursday night at the Mississippi Coliseum. Mississippi State (12-1) has won 11 straight games. Moultrie finished with 24 points and 14 rebounds for his seventh double-double of the season. Eleven of his 14 rebounds were on the offensive glass. “I think it had to do with me being 6-foot-11 and very athletic,” Moultrie said. “It’s kind of hard for people to box out. Even when they do, I’ve got the quickness to get around them.” Please see MSU | 9A

MSU: Moultrie stood out with 11 points CONTINUED FROM 8A

Moultrie led a productive night for the Bulldogsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; big men. Wendell Lewis scored a careerhigh 14 points off the bench, while Renardo Sidney added nine points and four rebounds in the first half before sitting out the rest of the game because of a strained patella tendon in his left knee. Rodney Hood added 11 points and six rebounds. But Moultrie was the standout. He shot 8 of 11 from the field and 8 of 8 from the free throw line. The Bulldogs won easily despite an off night from most of the guards. Dee Bost, the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading scorer with 18 points per game, managed just eight on 3-of-14 shooting. Mississippi State jumped out to a 30-11 lead by midway through the first half, feasting on easy baskets at pointblank range. Sidney had a particularly violent onehanded tomahawk that highlighted the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 26 points in the paint during the first half. The Bulldogs took a 41-27 lead into halftime. The 6-foot-10 Sidney was playing one of his better games this season during the first half, with nine points and four rebounds in 11 minutes. But he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play in the second half because of the knee injury, sitting on the bench with a bag of ice on his left leg. Mississippi State coach Rick Stansbury said he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think Sidneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s injury was serious, but wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be certain until he was evaluated by the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s medical staff. Without Sidney, Mississippi State struggled to open the second half. Northwestern State (76) went on a 12-4 run to close the gap to 45-39 just minutes into the second half. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The team got off to a big lead and just kind of coasted,â&#x20AC;? Stansbury said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had our bags packed for the holidays and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where their mind was at that point.â&#x20AC;? But the Bulldogs responded with an 11-1 run of their own to put the game out of reach, capped by Lewisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; dunk on a fast break that pushed Mississippi Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead to 56-40. Moultrie also had a few baskets during the rally, with several offensive rebounds that extended possessions.

Texas A&M lineman dies in car crash Associated Press

COLLEGE STATION, Texas â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Texas A&M senior offensive lineman Joseph Villavisencio has been killed in a car accident, according to the university. Witness reports say that Villavisencio swerved to avoid a buzzard and veered head-on into the path of an 18-wheeler near the town of Normangee about 40 miles from College Station, on Thursday. Villavisencio spent part of Thursday with the team delivering gifts to families at a local shelter after the Aggies finished their last workout on campus in preparation for the Meineke Car Care Bowl. Villavisencio was heading to his home in Jacksonville, Texas, at the time of the crash. Villavisencio saw very limited action in his career with the Aggies, but touched many involved in the program. Former coach Mike Sherman says everyone will remember him as a person â&#x20AC;&#x153;who would do anything for anybody.â&#x20AC;? The 22-year-old was a three-year letterman whom athletic director Bill Byrne says â&#x20AC;&#x153;epitomized selfless serviceâ&#x20AC;? to helping the Aggies improve as a team.

NBA: Injuries may hurt a team more than normal CONTINUED FROM 8A

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a challenge for us,â&#x20AC;? Adelman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we come out and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ready to go, and we can knock some of these people off, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just going to be better for us.â&#x20AC;? The Wolves donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t host Atlanta, Milwaukee, New Jersey, Orlando, Toronto and Washington, teams that perhaps donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t inspire the casual fan to run down on game night to check them out, but could be winnable games. They also donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t travel

to Boston, Chicago, Miami or New York. From a competitive standpoint, not having to play those teams on the road is great for the Wolves. But from a player experience standpoint, the Wolves donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sound thrilled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go to Miami and Chicago. ... Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little sad,â&#x20AC;? eagerly anticipated guard Ricky Rubio said. With this kind of schedule, youth might be served. Washington is expected to open the year with 10 players on the

team age 25 or younger. So on those back-to-backto-back nights, the Wizards might have a touch more spring in their collective step than some other clubs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It reminds me of an AAU season â&#x20AC;&#x201D; playing five games in one day,â&#x20AC;? Wizards guard John Wall said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It can be tough at times, but I think it can help us.â&#x20AC;? In past years, playing four games in five nights would be considered the worst of the schedule grind.

MISS: Loss of Holloway is big CONTINUED FROM 8A

LaRon Dendy scored 13 points for Middle Tennessee. Marcos Knight added 11 and Sulton finished with 10. Jarvis Summers led Ole Miss with nine points. Despite three first-half fouls for starting center Reginald Buckner, Ole Miss led 27-26 at halftime. The fouls haunted the Rebels all night. Forward Terrance Henry had two first-half fouls, picked up his third early in the second half and then his fourth with 13:13 left.

The third member of the Rebelsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; starting frontcourt, forward Murphy Holloway, suffered a left leg injury with 10:09 remaining and did not return. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our most efficient player,â&#x20AC;? Kennedy said. Kennedy said Holloway would have X-rays on his ankle Thursday in Oxford. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big loss for them,â&#x20AC;? Davis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the heart and soul of their team. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the best offensive rebounders in college basketball. I hope heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fine.

TOM BRADY, QB, PATRIOTS No amount of Tebowing could stop Brady and the Patriots during a 41–23 statement road win over the Broncos. The three-time Super Bowl champ completed 23-of-34 passes for 320 yards, two TDs and zero INTs, while doing his best Tim Tebow impression on a goal line QB sneak TD run. Following Brady’s first rushing score of the season, the Pats’ emotional leader let out a little steam with a powerful spike and primal scream to celebrate the six points. CALVIN JOHNSON, WR, LIONS Megatron was in top form, with nine catches for 214 yards (23.8 ypc) and two trips to the end zone during a 28–27 victory at Oakland. Johnson’s second TD grab of the day was a six-yard strike that capped a 98-yard drive to give the Lions — who trailed by 13 points in the fourth — the lead with 39 seconds remaining. After a nail-biting finish, in which Ndamukong Suh blocked a potential 65-yard game-winning FG, Detroit earned yet another comeback win. LESEAN MCCOY, RB, EAGLES Just when it seemed as if the “Dream Team” had been put to sleep, Philly has stormed back into the playoff picture, with a mathematical shot at the NFC East title with two games left. McCoy had 18 carries for 102 yards and three TDs in a 45–19 rout of the Jets. In the process, “Shady” surpassed Hall of Fame running back Steve Van Buren for the Eagles’ single-season rushing and total TD records. McCoy now has 16 TDs on the ground and 19 total this year. REGGIE BUSH, RB, DOLPHINS The Fins feature back had 25 carries for a career-high 203 yards and a season-long 76-yard TD sprint to paydirt — after which Bush was penalized for excessive celebration for sliding into the snow in the back of the end zone — during a 30–23 win at Buffalo. The effort was Bush’s third straight 100-yard game; the sixthyear back out of USC left New Orleans as a freeagent to sign with Miami, where he has posted a career-high 973 yards and six TDs. JOHN ABRAHAM, DE, FALCONS Atlanta’s top pass rusher was at his strip-sacking best during a 41–14 blowout of Jacksonville on Thursday night. Abraham recorded five tackles, a season-high 3.5 sacks and two forced fumbles of Jaguars rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert, who appeared to be in over his head playing against the terrorizing 6'4", 263-pound 12th-year veteran sack artist with four Pro Bowl selections already under his belt.

■ New Orleans quarterback DREW BREES is a fantasy football hero this week — after completing 32-of-40 passes for 412 yards, five TDs and zero INTs during a 42–20 road victory at Minnesota. Owners around the country hope Brees keeps up his historic pace this week in the traditional Week 16 Super Bowl.

First Things First Colts clinch first victory; Packers lose first game By NATHAN RUSH Athlon Sports Editor

The streaks are over; there will be neither a winless nor an undefeated team in the NFL in 2011. The 0–13 Indianapolis Colts beat the Tennessee Titans, 27–13, on the same day the 13–0 reigning Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers lost to the Kansas City Chiefs, 19–14. For the Colts, the win was the team’s first without Peyton Manning starting at quarterback since current 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh was under center, leading Indianapolis to a 41–0 win over Miami on Dec. 14, 1997. That’s 222 games between wins without No. 18 leading the way, for those true blue fans scoring at home. But the quarterback had less to do with this victory than did the Colts’ fast-track defense, which held the Titans to 66 yards rushing while picking off two passes and returning one for a momentum-shifting pick-six. “Give credit to our defense,” said quarterback Dan Orlovsky, who was an efficient (albeit un-Manning-like) 11-of-17 for 87 yards, one TD to Reggie Wayne and zero turnovers. “One of the better performances I’ve seen defensively in my career. It was nice to be out on the field to take the knee to end the game.” The crowd at Lucas Oil Stadium — which will host Super Bowl XLVI — was rocking until the very end of the surprising and especially sweet win. The victory ensures Indy will not join the 2008 Detroit Lions as the only 0–16 team in history. And the one-win Colts are still in position to lock up the No. 1 overall pick in the draft.

Reggie Wayne’s streak of seven straight 1,000-yard seasons is in jeopardy this year, but the Indianapolis Colts’ streak of 13 consecutive losses is finally over.

“It’s great to finally leave here with a smile on your face,” said Colts running back Donald Brown, who ran for a career-high 161 yards highlighted by an 80-yard touchdown run. On the other end of the spectrum, the unblemished Packers staggered, losing their first game since a 31–27 defeat (without Aaron Rodgers) on Dec. 19, 2010 at New England. As a result, Green Bay has no chance to join the 2007 Patriots with a 16–0 regular season record or, better yet, the 1972 Dolphins — who went 17–0 including a win in Super Bowl VII — as the only unbeaten team in history.

In Romeo Crennel’s first game as interim coach, the Chiefs’ defense bullied the Packers offense, sacking Aaron Rodgers four times and jamming Green Bay’s receivers all day. “That’s the way you stop a team that can throw the football. They pressed us from the time we got off the bus,” said coach Mike McCarthy. With the undefeated monkey off their backs, the Packers’ focus turns to the stretch run and the playoffs. “The perfect season is over now,” said Donald Driver. “We have something better to look forward to and that’s Super Bowl XLVI.”

TEXANS (10-4) AT COLTS (1-13) In Week 1, Houston handed Indianapolis its first of 13 consecutive losses, with a 34–7 blowout. But the Colts ride into this Thursday nighter fresh off their first victory, while the Texans had their seven-game win streak snapped. BRONCOS (8-6) AT BILLS (5-9) Tim Tebow goes on the road again, where the frequent-flying Superman is a perfect 5–0 — with eight passing TDs and zero INTs. DOLPHINS (5-9) AT PATRIOTS (11-3) Miami lost to New England, 38–24, in Week 1; this may be déja vu all over again for the Fins. BROWNS (4-10) AT RAVENS (10-4) Baltimore must bounce back after a 34–14 loss at San Diego on Sunday night. A visit from the Browns — a rival the Ravens beat 24–10 in Week 13 — will cure what ails Ray Lewis. RAIDERS (7-7) AT CHIEFS (6-8) Kansas City interim coach Romeo Crennel is 1–0 after knocking off the Packers. But the likeable defensive guru needs to win out if he hopes to remain the head Chief at Arrowhead. VIKINGS (2-12) AT REDSKINS (5-9) Adrian Peterson is toughing it out for his fantasy team owners; but he might want to rest his left ankle for his real team owner Zygi Wilf. CARDINALS (7-7) AT BENGALS (8-6) Two top rookies — Arizona cornerback Patrick Peterson and Cincy wideout A.J. Green — go toe-to-toe in a matchup of future Pro Bowlers. RAMS (2-12) AT STEELERS (10-4) St. Loser aims to match its season-opening, season-long six-game losing streak this week. BUCCANEERS (4-10) AT PANTHERS (5-9) Three weeks ago, Cam Newton marched to Tampa Bay and handed the Bucs a 38–19 loss. Get ready for the rookie’s first season sweep. GIANTS (7-7) AT JETS (8-6) The battle of the Big Apple is technically an “away” game for the Giants, even though it will be played in the same stadium Big Blue plays their home games in. This is a must-win for both of East Rutherford, New Jersey’s teams. JAGUARS (4-10) AT TITANS (7-7) Tennessee gave Indianapolis its first win of the season; the Titans need to avenge that defeat plus their 16–14 Week 1 loss at Jacksonville. CHARGERS (7-7) AT LIONS (9-5) The Bolts are surging in December once again, shocking the league with a three-game win streak after a six-game slide earlier this year. EAGLES (6-8) AT COWBOYS (8-6) Big D can win and get in (with a Giants loss). A Boys loss (and G-Men win) would result in a playoff play-in next week in the season finale. 49ERS (11-3) AT SEAHAWKS (7-7) Before Niners boss Jim Harbaugh had his postgame handshake issues with the Lions’ Jim Schwartz, the former Stanford coach was asked “What’s your deal?” at midfield after upsetting then-USC coach Pete Carroll. These two bring a collegiate energy to an NFC West rivalry. BEARS (7-7) AT PACKERS (13-1) The only Christmas Sunday game on the NFL schedule is the league’s oldest rivalry — but not necessarily this season’s best matchup. The 184th meeting of the Bears and Packers is a rematch of a Week 3 contest Green Bay won 27–17 against a Chicago club that had a healthy Jay Cutler. Following their first loss of the year, the Packers will be eager to Lambeau Leap as many times as possible on Xmas. FALCONS (9-5) AT SAINTS (11-3) Atlanta coach Mike Smith was widely criticized by Monday morning, armchair quarterbacks after going for it, and subsequently failing to convert, on 4th-and-1 in overtime of a 26–23 loss to New Orleans in Week 10. Since then, the Falcons are 4–1; but the Saints are 4–0.

Maturing Newton looks to set record vs. Bucs Associated Press

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The last time Cam Newton faced the Buccaneers he ran his way into the NFL record books. This time he’ll use his arm to do the same. The Panthers sensational rookie quarterback needs 18 yards passing Saturday against Tampa Bay to break Peyton Manning’s rookie single-season record of 3,739 yards. But Newton said that record is not as important as closing the season with two wins and helping the Panthers (5-9) carry a

load of momentum into next season when their games once again starting counting for something. “We need this win and it would be an excellent early gift on Christmas Eve,” Newton said. “So I’m more worried about the win column than the individual stats. If the season is going right, individual awards will take care of themselves. The big goal is to win the game first.” The Panthers come in hot having won three of their last four, including a 28-13 win last Sunday

against the playoff-bound Texans, and looking for a series sweep of the Bucs. The Bucs (4-10) are reeling. They lost eight straight, including a 38-19 defeat to Carolina three weeks ago, and have only managed to eclipse 20 points once during that span as questions swirl around the future of their young coach Raheem Morris. If there’s some bit of good news for the Bucs it’s that Josh Freeman will be back at quarterback. Josh Johnson started the Dec. 4 game against the

Panthers and was sacked twice and intercepted once and was unable to bring the Bucs back from an early 21-6 deficit. Forced into catch up mode, the Bucs pretty much abandon the run and running back LaGarrette Blount was a non-factor with 19 yards rushing on 11 carries. A year ago, the Bucs were as resilient as any team in the league, winning 10 games. This year, not so much. “It’s been a rough year,” Freeman said. “We haven’t played up to our potential.” The Bucs have really struggled to find consisten-

cy on offense, although they did have some luck against Dallas running the hurry-up offense. Freeman suggested that might be something that could help jumpstart a unit in need of a spark. “I could see that happening, trying to really get something going early,” Freeman said. “We’re playing a good team this weekend in the Panthers and their offense has been playing extremely well. It’s going to be a game where we’re going to have score some points.” He’s probably right. Newton had his way with

the Bucs earlier this month in leading five touchdown drives. He threw for one touchdown and ran for three others. Newton’s third touchdown run cemented Carolina’s win and broke Steve Grogan’s 35-year-old NFL record for touchdowns in a season by a quarterback with 13. For Newton, this season has been about learning how to handle adversity, something he didn’t have to deal with much while winning back-to-back national championships at Blinn Junior College and Auburn.

Nourish a spirit of gratitude at Christmastime Christmas is here and I’m still wondering where all the “shopping days” went so quickly. I did some baking the first part of December, earlier than usual for me, and sent cookies to a few friends and relatives out of town. Then I was going to get my shopping done early -- but somewhere along the way, I got sidetracked and procrastinated too long. I must admit, though, that I’ve actually been caught up in a spirit of gratitude and have concentrated more on the privilege of sharing the holidays with my family more than worrying about gift-buying. Just sitting down for Thanksgiving supper with all my family members’ feet under the table put me in awe of how blessed I am! About three weeks after my heart attack, our children and grandchildren joined my husband and me to have a family portrait done, the first since our new granddaughter was born. I picked my order up at the photographer’s last week, and every time I look at the large print of our family group, I’m thankful all over again that we had the opportunity to have that picture made. We all know life is not always fair and things don’t always go the way we would like. With so much pain in the world and so many hurting hearts, we must never pass up the chance to give thanks for the people who brighten our days and make our life worth living. This past Monday night, my grandkids and I had a long-awaited “sleepover.” We had been planning one for weeks but couldn’t find a night that was convenient for everybody. Finally, the time was right, and that afternoon, Hayden and I went shopping to buy something special for us to do together. He chose a wood-working project and picked out one for each child, announcing to the cashier that we were having a sleepover and needed something special to do. What he didn’t comprehend was the measure of joy I experienced on

that simple little escapade in the store. My spirit of gratitude actuLora Ann ally kicked Huff in before I The Back started the Porch car to leave the house! What fun the three older kids had that night building their wooden lockers to store their small treasures in! Then we dressed all four children in their sock monkey pajamas and made pictures under the Christmas tree. That was quite interesting because Rilee Bea, at 8 months, was not totally into sitting still and posing with the other three. After eating homemade pizza, we loaded up to go riding with Popaw to see “Christmas lights.” Threeyear-old Christian asked, “Where do you go to see Christmas lights -- at the light house?” Two minutes into our drive, Hayden began singing “Jingle Bells” and Christian, Victoria, Popaw, and I quickly chimed in. Wish I had recorded it. Their little voices sounded so sweet, and they didn’t miss a word. What a memory (for me)! We rode around and listened to the giggles and words of surprise at the different colorful decorations until the kids were asking to go home because they were so tired and sleepy. Except for Victoria who announced, “I’m not gonna sleep, I’m gonna stay up all night!” She actually held on til about 1 a.m. before giving in to the sand man, and we slept til 8 the next morning when Christian announced, “Momaw, it’s wake-up time!” You see why I am so grateful to be able to share in this holiday season? I’m sure many folks reading this feel the same way I do and would agree we need to enjoy every day and make the most of our opportunities. After all, it is true we’re not promised tomorrow -- so let’s make the most of today.

What does Christmas mean to you? BY GARY ANDREWS gary@gadevotionals.com

What does Christmas mean to you? It is a time for merriment, a time of gift giving, a time for celebration and a time for good food. Too many times we allow this to be our focus on what Christmas should be. Many of us celebrate Christmas as a time of giving and receiving and miss the blessing that Christmas was first intended to be. Christians celebrate Christmas as the birthday of our Heavenly King and Savior. It is a reminder from God we have an advocate in Jesus Christ. It is the greatest gift ever given and it is the gift that never fails or goes out of style. Jesus came to give us hope and

to allow us to have a Savior who will never leave us. Through our local churches and Christian families, we have kept the message of Christ’s birthday alive and our younger generation has the opportunity to learn the real meaning of Christmas. But, unfortunately, so many of the people in the world today are unchurched and Christmas is portrayed in a fashion other than what it should be. Santa Clause has become the center of this great holiday season and our merchants have pushed the season as time to purchase gifts and gorge ourselves with rich foods and beverages. Our children look forward to Santa stopping at their house and leaving toys, clothes and other good things but

somehow the message of Christ is often omitted. Some of our hopes are centered around the Christmas tree and the packages that go under it. It brings a time of anticipation and good feeling when we light it up with bright lights and ornaments. Most of us place a star on top of the tree and possibly don’t understand what the star should be a sign of. In the gospel of Matthew 2:2 it is written; “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him.” Continuing in verses 9 & 10 “ . . . and the star they had seen in the east went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. When they saw the star, they were overjoyed.”

Suggested Bible readings: Sunday - Luke 2:1-12; Monday - 2 Corinthians 5:17; Tuesday - John 3:16; Wednesday - Psalm 102:12; Thursday - John 10:10; Friday - Isaiah 9:6; Saturday - Matthew 1:21 Many believe this bright star may have been a beam of light from heaven as God directed the magi to the birthplace of Christ. The star was the heavenly sign of promises long ago. God promised a Savior for the world and the star was the sign of fulfillment of His promise.

Vatican has no plans to limit visitors to the Sistine Chapel paintings Associated Press

VATICAN CITY — The Vatican is determined to avoid limiting the number of visitors to the Sistine Chapel with its Michelangelo frescoes, despite harmful buildup of dust and other pollutants, the director of the Vatican Museums said Wednesday.

“We will try to keep it open” without putting a limit on the growing number of visitors to the chapel, “in the conviction that it is possible to do so without risk to the paintings,” Antonio Paolucci wrote in the Holy See’s daily newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano.

Paolucci, who also is one of Italy’s most renowned art restoration experts, said the Vatican was working to give the chapel where popes are elected an “updated and efficient air conditioning system able to ensure the refreshing of the air and the combating of pollutants in both solid

and gas forms.” Some 4 million people visit the Museums annually, with the chapel the highlight -- or even the sole aim of the visit -- for countless numbers of them. Ticket sales are a big moneymaker for the Vatican. Dust, sweat, humidity and carbon dioxide ex-

haled by visitors who jam into the chapel to crane their neck to look at the frescoed ceiling can build to unwanted levels. Last year, a high-tech monitoring system was installed in the chapel to obtain data, and the monitoring “is a good way along,” Paolucci said.

The monitors register temperature and relative humidity at various heights in the chapel as well as the temperature of the frescoes themselves, dust levels, and the concentration of carbon dioxide, as well as the direction and speed of air currents in the cavernous room, he noted.

Horoscopes by Holiday BY HOLIDAY MATHIS Tomorrow’s new moon in Capricorn will be a lucky time for making wishes, though this is the best time to dream those wishes up, as the moon is in openminded Sagittarius. There also will be a sense of urgency under this passionate influence, and it will seem as though this is the last chance to make a play for a certain outcome. ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll immediately identify what’s in the way of you and a certain situation you want to create for yourself. Using your amped-up powers of charm and persuasion, you will effectively eradicate this obstacle. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Regular feedback will be your magic success ticket. Arrange to check in with a supportive person, preferably a mentor type who has experience with what you’re doing. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). This will be an ordinary extraordinary day. In many ways, it’s like yesterday. And yet you notice your moments differently, experiencing the uplift of a thousand interesting details. CANCER (June 22July 22). Your eyes and ears are wide open, and wonders will be revealed to you. You’ll use all you learn to gain greater clarity about your world, especially your immediate environment. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your day will have an el-

ement of glamour to it. There will be a victory of sorts, and you’ll know that you have caused a change that would not have happened were you not involved. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Though you are in the process of instilling new habits, you may need to take a break from your efforts to do what’s necessary to overcome other challenges of life. Rest assured, you are still moving forward. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll solve problems quickly. You might not find the fix that will last through the centuries, but what you come up with will do for now. And your ingenuity will be admired by those who can help you with more permanent solutions. SCORPIO (Oct. 24Nov. 21). The help of a socially supportive network will make a difference for you. With an enthusiastic team in place, you’ll be able to accomplish far more than you thought you would. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have a jolly and flexible attitude, and that will bring you luck. You may have to push your plans around a bit to accommodate the realities of changed circumstances in your life. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). You have much to accomplish, and you’ll be busy all day. The moment you check something off of your list, you’ll

want to move down to the next item. Pause to pat yourself on the back between tasks. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18). There are about 500 reasons to smile. Then again, you’ll only be as happy as you let yourself be. So remind yourself that you deserve to feel content. You really do! PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your astute observations will allow you to see financial opportunity. You’ll determine how you might offer something better and different from that of the competition. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 23). You’ll come to understand your unique gifts. Every week you’ll spend time developing your talent. You’ll be applauded in April. Through the spring, you will focus on the needs of your loved ones, and somehow your own needs will be addressed in the process. In June, you will embark on an astonishing adventure. Taurus and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 49, 18, 24, 31 and 23. WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: You’ll stroke a loved one’s ego. Your love is a safety zone. TAURUS: Ever the independent, you will be annoyed by anyone who comes to your rescue when you don’t really need it. GEMINI: The person who works to get your attention will appreciate it all the more. CAN-

Today in History CER: You’ll gain greater control over your emotions and direct them in a way that brings a loved one near. LEO: In the eye of an emotional storm, you will be the gentle, calm refuge that a loved one needs. VIRGO: You’ll simplify your life so that you have more to give to someone else. LIBRA: You’ll love the surprise that your love brings to you. SCORPIO: You’ll seize the chance to make a memory and take pictures to solidify the moment. SAGITTARIUS: You have just the kind of humor that someone finds devastatingly attractive. CAPRICORN: Your willingness to melt the ice with a stranger will lead to an interesting opportunity. AQUARIUS: You’ll share your dreams with someone who will someday help them come true. PISCES: You feel that you’ve been too giving and trusting in the past, but you’re not about to change that now. You’d rather believe the best of people. COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Sagittarius and Capricorn may be next-door neighbors on the zodiac wheel, but they are unfamiliar in so many ways that they could spend a lifetime learning about each other. Capricorn believes that love is usually as strong as its demonstration. What matters to this sign is what you do in the name of love.

I’d like to show Anita ably blended family? — BLENDED FAMILY how much I love her, as IN BATON ROUGE, well as show others we’re in a serious relationship. LA.

An engagement ring would be a way to show it. However, the term “engagement” would not be accurate because we do not plan to marry. Can you suggest another symbol or even another term for a ring to show unity without indicating the eventuality of marriage? — ROMANTIC IN OHIO DEAR ROMANTIC: How about calling Anita’s ring a commitment ring? Or give her a pendant with a sweet message engraved on the back? Or a wristwatch engraved with, “Love ya ‘til the end of time,” or “... ‘til time runs out.” Another way to indicate to others that you’re together but don’t believe in “tradition” would be to hold a commitment ceremony and invite friends. DEAR ABBY: There is an issue driving a wedge between my wife and me. I have always believed that my casual shirts (in fact, all my shirts) should be worn tucked into my slacks. My wife feels they should be left out. I think

Friday, December 23, 2011

I look better with them tucked in. She feels differently. Abby, you can save our marriage if you’ll let us know who is right. To tuck, or not to tuck — that is the question. And, by the way, she says I should mention that I have a bodacious waistline, which means I could lose 40 pounds. — FRIAR “TUCKED” IN LONGMONT, COLO. DEAR “TUCKED”: Your wife is your best friend and she is right. (If you doubt it, consult a men’s haberdasher.) By leaving your shirt out, you would appear to be a few pounds thinner. When you tuck it in, your “bodacious” waistline is accentuated by a horizontal line, which makes you appear to be heavier.

Perhaps you sent a lovely card, or sat quietly in a chair. Perhaps you sent a funeral spray, if so, we saw it there. Perhaps you spoke the kindest words, As any friend could say. Perhaps you were not there at all, Just thought of us that day. Whatever you did to console our hearts, We thank you so very much, whatever the part.
