Investigators working Dollar General case BY STEVE BEAVERS

Investigators with the Alcorn County Sheriff's Department continue to look for leads in the break-in of a Kossuth store. Two male subjects broke into the Dollar General store early Christmas Eve, taking the safe which contained a significant amount of cash. The break-in was the third

in a three-week span involving Dollar General stores. Stores in the Thaxton community of Pontotoc County and Eastview, Tenn., have also been entered and money taken from the safe. Area law enforcement agencies in both Alcorn and Pontotoc counties believe their crimes could involve the same subjects. Both crimes saw a pair of while males enter the

front doors of the store and tie some sort of logging chain to the safe. The safe was then pulled through the doors by a white pickup, causing major damage to the the front of each store. The Kossuth Dollar General, located in the heart of downtown on Highway 2, was robbed at 3:05 a.m. on Dec. 24. The store was unable to reopen

until three days later. In Thaxton, the crime happened on Dec. 10 about 3:43 a.m. In both crimes, video shows two individuals robbing the safe. Individuals with information about the break-in can call the sheriff's office at 286-5521 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-773TIPS. “Any assistance the public

can give would be appreciated,” said Reggie Anderson, investigator with the Alcorn County Sheriff's Department. Dollar General stores have been hit numerous times in Tennessee. Over the last year, 10 stores have been robbed in Middle Tennessee. The latest happened on Dec. 23 in Columbia, Tenn., when two males robbed the store at gunpoint.

Non-jury trial set in flood lawsuit BY JEBB JOHNSTON

The City of Corinth will get a non-jury trial in the upcoming lawsuit over flooding at the Fulton Crossing shopping center. A consent order recently entered in U.S. District Court says Corinth is entitled to a non-jury trial to be held simultaneously with the jury trial against all other defendants in February 2014 in Aberdeen. All parties have agreed to the order. Kmart sued numerous defendants over damage in the May 2010 flood. In addition to Corinth, the remaining defendants are The Kroger Co., E&A Southeast Limited Partnership, Fulton Improvements and Kansas City Southern Railway Company. Corinth’s counsel has asserted that the National Flood In-

Guild features special exhibit BY JEBB JOHNSTON

Years later, like a lost masterpiece, one of Jeremiah Briggs’ earliest artistic works reached the light of day. “I remember drawing on the bottom of my mom’s dining room table,” recalled Briggs, a Selmer, Tenn., resident. “She found this years later when she got the table refinished. She turned the table over and here was this crayon drawing of a semi truck.” It was inspired by his father’s work as a trucker. The grown-up work of Briggs

is the featured January exhibit at the Corinth Artist Guild Gallery, which hosts an opening reception with the artist on Sunday from 2 until 4 p.m. The gallery is also hosting a collection of Jesse Ables’ snow scenes during the month. A special education teacher at North Side High School in Jackson, Tenn., Briggs’ featured work includes a number of fantasy and spiritually inspired pieces. “My love has always been for science fiction and fantasy type art,” said Briggs. “I grew up reading Edgar Rice Burroughs, Rob-

ert E. Howard and all of those guys, and I fell in love with the artwork that was on the cover. I always thought, ‘Man, if I could ever do something like that, that would really be fun.’” His drawings as a young boy growing up in Ohio led his father to enroll him in a Cincinnati art school at the age of 8. He went to class on Saturday mornings. “I remember I was so mad because I didn’t get to watch cartoons,” said Briggs. “I had to go to art class.” After Briggs served in the U.S. Please see BRIGGS | 2A

surance Act preempts the state law claims and that the city is immune pursuant to assorted provisions of the Mississippi Torts Claim Act. Kroger also sought to be dismissed from the suit. Kroger’s motion entered in September notes that the grocery store is a tenant in a building that it did not construct and was first occupied by Bruno’s/Foodworld. Kmart’s suit argues that the grocery store was built in a floodway and was a major cause of the flooding of the Kmart store. Kmart is seeking compensation for flood damage at the Fulton Crossing location, the store’s closure for about 10 months, and flood prevention efforts in April 2011, when the store was also threatened by flood waters.

CT-A searching for cabaret performers BY BOBBY J. SMITH

Corinth Theatre-Arts will bring a new kind of production to the stage in 2013. Cabaret Sunday, a night of themed performances, is scheduled for Sunday, Jan. 27, at the Crossroads Playhouse. “This is part of the new initiatives being introduced by Director Cristina Skinner,” said Technical Director David Maxedon. “Under the guidance of an almost brand new board of directors, innovations and change are the buzzwords as CT-A heads into 2013.” Cabaret Sunday will be an evening of performing arts with

actors, artists and patrons. The event will feature a combination a combination of musical revue, open mic poetry, stand-up comedy and more. Artistic director Skinner is looking for talent — be it CT-A regulars or newcomers — to be part of the evening. Performers need to prepare a performance beforehand that follows the theme of the first Cabaret Sunday event: “Titanic!” They should contact Skinner to discuss their material and how it relates to the theme.

State legislators ponder complex future of health care BY BOBBY J. SMITH

When the new legislative session begins Tuesday, state lawmakers will determine if thousands of more Mississippians will be added to the Medicaid rolls under the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as “Obamacare.” “The states have the option whether or not to enroll more people in Medicaid, and that’s something we’re going to have to consider, whether we choose to do that,” said 2nd District Rep. Nick Bain. “That’s going to be a

hot button topic.” District 1 Rep. Bubba Carpenter said the state simply cannot afford to pay for a huge expansion of Medicaid coverage. “As a state right now, one-third of our population is on Mississippi Medicaid. We’re looking at 250,000 to 300,000 more Mississippians being eligible for our Medicaid rolls,” said Carpenter. “Right now we struggle to balance our Medicaid budget.” In addition to increase in cost, another issue is the unknown factors of the Affordable Care Act.

“With this act, nobody knows what rules we’re going to be playing by,” Carpenter said. “As Mississippians, we’ll have to make a decision whether to accept the federal money or not. It’s like this scenario: I’m going to buy you a new truck. I’m going to make your payment for the first two years. Of course, the first two years it looks like a honeymoon. But then reality sets in.” Carpenter worries that after the two years of federal assistance are over, the state will be left with a skyrocketing health care bill and won’t be able to ad-

equately fund its top three budget items — education, Medicaid and prisons. “It’s a big decision, but I look forward to examining all the pieces of legislation and making a good conservative vote that Mississippi can live with and our health-care industry can live with,” Carpenter said. “But I will definitely not support the expansion of Medicaid. We can’t afford it.” The problem of paying for the state’s expanded responsibilities under the Affordable Care Act will be also be discussed in the

state Senate. District 4 Sen. Rita Potts Parks said Obamacare will be one of the main issues faced by the state Senate in the upcoming session, along with charter schools, a bond bill and the $30 million deficit within the Mississippi Department of Corrections. “We will debate the pros and cons of the Affordable Care Act or ‘Obamacare’ to determine what benefits, if any, are provided to Mississippians,” said Parks. “Also, we will consider a pathway dedicated to support Medicaid.”

On this day in history 150 years ago The Battle of Stone’s River continues after a day of rest and repositioning. An early Confederate assault pushes back the Federals, but in the afternoon, the Union counterattacks and retakes the field. It is a narrow victory for Gen. Rosecrans and both sides suffer a total of 23,515 casualties.

Man charged in crash that killed 5 kids, 1 adult Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — The driver of a SUV that careened off a road and into a rain-swollen creek has been charged with six counts of DUI manslaughter. Neshoba County Sheriff Tommy Waddell said bond was set at $150,000 for Duane John. John, 34, remained in the county jail Tuesday. Waddell said John was arrested Monday after his release from Neshoba County General Hospital. Five children and one adult died in Saturday’s accident in Neshoba County. Waddell said authorities they are awaiting the official toxicology report. “I’m not going to go

into a lot of the details we have, but the evidence we’ve gathered is that it’s alcohol-related,” Waddell said when asked about the charges. An accident reconstruction team of the Highway Patrol was at the site Sunday. Officials said the report would be finalized in a week or two and turned over to Waddell. Waddell said the victims apparently drowned after their Dodge Durango left a country road and plunged into a creek 20 miles southeast of Philadelphia. The victims of Saturday’s crash were members of the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians and lived in the Pearl River community.

The victims were identified as 9-yearold Daisyanna John; 8-year-old Duane John; 7-year-old Bobby John; 4-year-old Quinton John; and 18-monthold Kekambas John; and 38-year-old Dianne Chickaway. Waddell said John and two others survived — the mother of the children, Deanna Jim, and Chickaway’s husband, Dale Chickaway. Tribe spokeswoman Misty Dreifuss said a funeral for the children will be held 2 p.m. Wednesday at the tribe’s Pearl River Facility Building in Choctaw. A funeral for Dianne Chickaway is to be held 2 p.m. Thursday at Hopewell Baptist Church in Leake County.

Middleby says it will purchase Viking Range for $380 million Associated Press

GREENWOOD — Food service equipment maker Middleby Corp. says it will buy Mississippibased oven and kitchen appliance maker Viking Range Corp. for $380 million. Viking Range is based in Greenwood, Miss., and makes products for use in residential cooking. Middleby said Viking Range has $200 million in annual sales. Over the last 12 months Middleby’s revenue has grown 21 percent to $990 million. The deal was announced Monday. Fred Carl Jr., Viking’s founder and chief executive officer, tells the Greenwood Commonwealth that the manufacturer of upscale kitchen appliances will stay in Greenwood. He expects few changes resulting from the new ownership other than future growth in the city of its birth. “I am truly happy about this,” Carl said. “It’s going to be good for

Viking, good for Viking employees and good for Greenwood. That was very important to me.” Carl, 64, will remain the company’s president and chief executive officer for “probably several more years,” he said. In addition to Viking’s manufacturing operation, the company’s hospitality subsidiaries — including its cooking schools and The Alluvian hotel — are included in the sale to Middleby. Carl said Viking’s 1,000 employees were notified of the sale in an email Monday. Middleby, based in Elgin, Ill., says the acquisition will help it expand in the residential cooking market. It also plans to introduce Viking Range’s products in emerging markets. Selim A. Bassoul, Middleby’s chairman and CEO, said in a press release that plans are to maintain Viking’s operations in Greenwood. “It is our intent to help Fred and his team to

continue to grow Viking right there in Mississippi where it’s been since he started the company,” Bassoul said. Viking celebrated its 25th year of production in 2012. Since 1992, it has been owned by Carl, a Greenwood native, and The Stephens Group, a privately owned Little Rock, Ark., investment firm. With Stephens’ financial backing, the company experienced 15 years of dramatic growth, expanding its product line, its manufacturing operation in Greenwood and its worldwide distribution. Carl said that Viking had been approached on a regular basis over the years by potential suitors, including several residential appliance makers, private equity firms and private investors. Middleby itself had unsuccessfully approached Viking several years ago. The two companies, though, stayed in touch, and Carl said that earlier this year Middleby made another pitch. This time Carl and his partners were interested.

BY ERIK SCHELZIG Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — An effort to reduce opposition to supermarket wine sales has so far failed to change the minds of the liquor store owners who stand to lose the most out of the proposal. Under the bill taking shape before the Legislature convenes next week, local referendums would determine if wine could be sold alongside beer in grocery and convenience stores. In exchange, sponsors say liquor stores could branch out to sell items, like beer, mixers, ice and snacks. The measure could also end the current law that allows owners to operate only one

liquor store in the state. Rep. Jon Lundberg of Bristol, a main sponsor of the bill, said he expects improved prospects for the measure because of a growing number of likeminded Republicans in the Legislature. “You have a group of people who’ve been elected who want to remove shackles from competition and let the market-

place decide,” he said. “This is one of those prime examples of letting businesses compete like every other business.” But Chip Christianson, owner of J. Barleycorn’s in Nashville and former president of the Tennessee Wine and Spirits Retailers Association, said he and his colleagues didn’t buy their stores with designs on starting chains.

‘Self-interest’ versus ‘selfish’ Self-interest: a concern for one’s own well-being Selfish: concerned excessively or exclusively with oneself : seeking or concentrating on one’s own advantage, pleasure, or well-being Bryan without regard for others Golden arising from concern with one’s own welfare or advanDare to Live tage in disregard of others Without Limits Self-interest is essential for your happiness and well being. It enables you to provide food and shelter for you and your family. Self-interest is necessary for your economic and career success. If you are not concerned about yourself, who will be? Selfishness is different than self-interest. Selfish people tend to be exclusively concerned about only themselves. They don’t care about anyone else and have no regard for other people. Selfish individuals may act in a manner that’s detrimental to others. Having a healthy self-interest doesn’t preclude caring about others. Actually, a strong self-interest is a core component of those who are most concerned about other’s welfare. If you don’t care about yourself, how can you care about others? There is often confusion because the terms self-interest and selfish are erroneously used interchangeably. As a result, you may feel guilty about acting in your own self-interest. The reasoning is that taking care of your needs will invariably have a negative impact on someone else. When you feel guilty about taking care of your self-interests, you wrongly assume that someone else’s situation will somehow improve by your deprivation. Making sure that you are OK does not cause anyone else to suffer. A common example is doing well financially. Some try to assign a stigma to economic success, incorrectly asserting that economic success can only occur at the expense of others. If you are acting in your own self-interest, you are compensated financially for providing a desirable service or product. Therefore you prosper as the result of helping other people. Selfish people don’t care what they have to do get money. They have no ethics, morals, or standards. Their main focus is only what’s in it for them. Although selfish individuals may at times appear to profit, it’s only in the short term and not sustainable. If you find you have been selfish, now is a good time to change. Past behavior does not have to dictate your future actions. You have free will and can improve at any time. If you are not happy with how you have been acting, make corrections. When you act in your own self-interest you help others not only by what you produce but also by what you consume. Whenever you spend the money you earn, it gets spread throughout the economy causing a positive ripple effect. The more you spend, the more many others benefit. Conversely, if guilt prevents you from living as well as you would like, you have much less of a positive impact on others. Construct a list of what you want from life. Think big. Dream big. There’s nothing wrong with reaching all of your dreams. Your success is good. There is nothing to be ashamed about. The more you give out, the more you get back in return. Don’t listen to those who disparage your motives. Their situation won’t improve if they are successful in discouraging you. Life provides limitless opportunity for all. Whether or not someone avails them self of this potential is their choice. It’s good to act in your own self-interest. Have high aspirations. Work hard. Apply yourself. Ignore any criticism implying that you are selfish. Some will be jealous of your success. There’s nothing you can do about how they feel. So focus on your needs.

Legislature faces thorny issues in 2013 session STARKVILLE — Mississippi lawmakers face the usual lineup of tough issues in the 2013 session — the state budget, transportation issues, charter schools, renewed calls for a state bond bill, and perhaps the toughest issue of all, the question of whether or not to expand the state’s Medicaid program. The 2013 regular session of the Mississippi Legislature is set to run Jan. 8 through April 7. On the transportation front, there are increasing calls across the state for transportation funding, especially for road and bridge maintenance. The federal gas tax hasn’t changed in 20 years. Mississippi is one of 14 states nationwide that hasn’t adjusted the state gas tax in more than 20 years. Couple that with the fact that only five states — not including Mississippi — index their gas tax to inflation and there’s the fundamental riddle of transportation funding. At the federal and state level, rising costs of road and bridge construction and maintenance continue to drive up the cost of building and maintaining highway infrastructure — including the rising cost of

fuel. Mississippi’s 18.4 cents per gallon gas tax — last in Sid Salter hiked 1987 — is Columnist a flat tax. When we pay $2 a gallon for gas at the pump, the tax is 18.4 cents per gallon. When we pay $4 per gallon at the pump, the state tax is still 18.4 cents per gallon. The only way the state takes in more revenue in gas taxes is for the volume of gas consumed to increase. According to a report by the American Society of Civil Engineers, the state’s flat gas tax isn’t keeping pace with the inflation of rising highway construction and maintenance costs and with the modern fuel economy improvements in today’s vehicles. Central District Transportation Commissioner Dick Hall says the ASCE report makes clear that Mississippi has an estimated $30 billion in highway and bridge needs between 2008 and 2035. But even in a “best-case scenario,” the state’s current gas tax structure would only generate $15.3 billion to meet those

expenses. The Medicaid expansion battle will pit the state’s Republican legislative and executive leadership against the Mississippi Hospital Association and public health care advocates who tout the expansion provided by the federal Affordable Care Act as “economic development” and good health care policy. GOP leaders say the future of the expansion is uncertain and that such uncertainty makes the proposed expansion fiscally irresponsible. Lawmakers will be whipsawed between those two disparate political positions. The political train appears to be on the track for adoption of significant charter school legislation, but questions linger about how much real gain the measure will bring to the state’s educational system. Also, there is some lingering enmity in the Legislature about just how expansive the charter program backed by the leadership will be in terms of “successful” school districts. The state budget negotiations will be helped by the fact that revenue estimates have been met and slightly exceeded, but hurt by the tepid pace of recovery. Mis-

sissippi is one of 27 states reporting to the National Conference of State Legislatures that general fund revenue growth rates are lower than in previous recoveries. Uncertainty over what Congress and the White House would do about the so-called “fiscal cliff” also left Mississippi lawmakers — as were their counterparts across the country — in holding patterns as to crafting solutions to state issues like Medicaid that had a strong federal component. Mississippi lawmakers face making policy in the poorest state in the union year after year. But since 2005, their jobs have been exacerbated by Hurricane Katrina, protracted recessions, and now fundamental changes in federal public health care that have unprecedented impacts in poor states. The session begins with state leaders assessing impacts from congressional actions or inactions and move forward from that point.

Recalling times with Mabel, Barney, Hannah and me FISHTRAP HOLLOW, Miss. — My resolution for the new year is to make a little money. I don’t need a whole lot, simply enough to pay for dog food and maybe a little extra for me to enjoy Mexican lunches with my friend Jean. So I’ve been working in fits and starts on a book about dogs. Once you’ve written a book about Hank Williams and lost money, your remaining options are vampires, steamy romance or dogs. I choose dogs. I figure they owe me. I ordered “The Big New Yorker Book of Dogs” for my husband’s Christmas gift, which killed two birds. He got a nice, thick red book, and I got to read all the best dog stories. Writers like James Thurber and E.B. White and Ogden Nash and A.J. Liebling all have written about dogs and prove it can be done, if well, again and again. Believe it or not, the genre wasn’t invented by John Grogan, the “Me” in “Marley and Me,” though he did an excellent job and had

I might take a chronological approach — dogs I have owned — but then again I might not. My memories of my first blond puppy Maxie are a bit hazy and involve family debates over where the pet should sleep. The Maxie story ended badly, and in the elements. No, I think it best to skip Monster and Buster and Humphrey and start midstream with Barney, a big black mutt who was rescued by my sister from an interstate median near Nashville. She, quite naturally, left the bundle of joy with me. His nickname was WingNut because that’s what his ears put you in mind of

after he reached maturity. Barney was gentle, but a fearsome-looking dog. One year, five sheriff candidates came to the house seeking my vote. Barney greeted each man in his turn. Only one had the guts to get out of his car. He got my vote. Besides winnowing political candidates, Barney sang in a canine choir with two other rescued pups, Pogo and Albert. If I threw back my head and hit a High C, all three dogs would join in the chorus, Barney providing bass. Somewhere in this borderline hoarder’s house is an old videocassette of such a performance. Barney is buried on a hill behind my house, beneath a rock that says “Best Dog.” At that point, the day he was buried, it was true. Since then there’s been Pete, another Maxie, a temporary boarder named Sam, Boozoo, Hank, Hannah and, of course, Mabel, my own yellow Lab. She was the kind of dog the other dogs get sick of hearing

Mabel would perk up at the sound, her ears at alert, long limbs at the ready. “Finally,” she seemed to be thinking. “Someone is coming to add some life to this dead zone.” Mabel was too good to be good book fodder. She didn’t even smell bad when wet. Even in death she was considerate. On a wild ride to get her to the Mississippi State veterinary school before her heart stopped, she gave it up a few miles shy of our destination. If she couldn’t make me money, she’d save me some.

Bryant says education remains top issue BY EMILY WAGSTER PETTUS Associated Press

JACKSON — Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant said education dominates his 2013 legislative agenda, from merit pay for teachers to charter schools that will receive public funding but be free of some state regulations. “Ninety percent of our goal this session is to not only talk about education but get something transformational passed,” the Republican said in an interview with The Associated Press. The three-month session begins at noon Jan. 8. Bryant, who’s starting his second year as governor, proposes limited

funding — $3 million in a $5.5 billion budget — to pay for early childhood education programs in parts of the state. He said Mississippi can’t afford a statewide pre-kindergarten program, but he wants to see stronger academic offerings for children in day care centers and Head Start programs. “We just don’t need to set ’em in front of a television and feed ’em Froot Loops,” Bryant said. “We need to begin to teach them.” He also proposes a broad-scale program of public school choice that would allow students in the lower-ranked schools — those graded D or F — to cross district lines to attend schools with better

“We just don’t need to set ’em in front of a television and feed ’em Froot Loops. We need to begin to teach them.” Phil Bryant Mississippi governor academic performance if space is available. Public funding would follow the student. “We have 152 walls that we build around these school districts, and we won’t let students in or out,” Bryant said, speaking of school districts. “I call them Berlin Walls because they won’t let you out of there.”

The school choice program could face opposition from successful districts reluctant to change what they’re doing. “If I have the money, I can go buy a house in a nice district, my children go to a nice school,” Bryant said. “So what we’re saying to a poor family is, ‘Your child is in that failing school district, they

can’t get out and we’re never going to let you.”’ Here are other excerpts from the AP interview with the governor: AP: You’re pushing for charter schools, but critics say the approach is too narrow. Some black lawmakers are skeptical about the motivation behind the push. How do you respond to the concerns? Bryant: “As we were sitting in this office with Gov. Bush (former Gov. Jeb Bush of Florida) and talking with members of the Black Caucus, and I had never realized that some members in the African-American community, members of the Legislature, had a constituency — which I’m

very respectful of — that believes that somehow we’re trying to turn these into private schools, that somehow there’s this undercurrent of wanting to maybe put white students into public schools and sort of make them private schools. And I was so surprised by that. I had just never thought of that being an issue. Because every charter school I’ve ever been into is probably 99 percent African-American students. So, the idea that we’d somehow want to use this to make private schools using public dollars was just so foreign to me. ...

Calendar delivered 63 years late Associated Press

SCRANTON, Pa. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A northeastern Pennsylvania newspaper has just received a calendar to help ring in the new year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; except the year is 1950. Scrantonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Times-

Tribune reports a mail carrier delivered it 63 years late without explanation on Friday. The large tube contained a 1950 Pennsylvania Railroad calendar addressed to James Fla-

nagan, former general manager of The Scranton Times. The calendar includes a holiday greeting from a railroad executive dated December 1949. Flanagan died that month.


Republicans as, maybe members that are resistant of charter schools, and they think, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Phil Bryant canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really care about some African-American childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s education in innercity Jackson or in the Delta, so there must be some alternative motive.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; And the fact is, we do care. We care because the economic workforce of the future canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be sustained with half of our third-graders being unable to read at a third-grade level.â&#x20AC;? AP: People also wonder: Whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to make money off charter schools? Bryant: â&#x20AC;&#x153;If there is money to be made in charter schools, I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t figured out how that happens.â&#x20AC;? AP: Talk about your third-grade reading initiative. Bryant: â&#x20AC;&#x153;My idea is, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stop, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hold those third-graders that cannot read and not promote them to the fourth grade. But youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to intervene. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to have dramatic, transformational intervention. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve asked for $15 million to bring in reading teachers to help work with those classes, those teachers, that perhaps are not using the most successful techniques.â&#x20AC;? AP: Immigration enforcement was one of your top issues in 2012, but a bill died in the Senate. Will you renew your push in 2013? Bryant: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to certainly work with the House leadership. ... The people who come through the current system that are legal immigrants into America and into Mississippi, we welcome. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of the American fabric. And we need to clearly understand that it is those that are crossing our borders illegally and violating our laws that we should have the authority, simply have the authority, to apprehend and determine their citizenship.â&#x20AC;? AP: During a House committee hearing a few months ago, Hispanics said they were concerned that they or their loved ones could be stopped by

officers simply because of the way they look, even if a law were to specify racial profiling wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be allowed. What do you think of those concerns? Bryant: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a red flag that some groups use, I think, to try to derail the lawful enforcement of the immigration laws. ... A law enforcement officer makes the necessary arrest based on probable cause and facts. Because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to arrest that individual, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to handcuff them, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to take them to jail, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to book them in. Then you have to go to court and defend that arrest. And so the idea that a law enforcement officer would say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to profile this individual and somehow have a trumped-up cause to arrest him because heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hispanicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is just ridiculous. It is not going to happen. And I trust Mississippi law enforcement officers to make certain that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen.â&#x20AC;? AP: What kind of economic development proposals are on your 2013 agenda? Bryant: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are going to try to work carefully with the Legislature to fund MDA (the Mississippi Development Authority) at a level that is conservative but effective. ... And we will involve the state auditorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office at early stages when we begin to look for incentivizing bringing businesses into the state. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never been done before, but the state auditor and I have talked and we are anxious and certainly encouraged by his willingness to join us in more transparency.â&#x20AC;? AP: Are you making proposals to shore up finances of the Public Employees Retirement System? Bryant: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The PERS board believes that they can grow their investments by 8 percent. If they do that, then their actuary believes that certainly it will begin to grow the revenue to a level to sustain our projected retirees. Now, my concern is, if it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t grow at 8 percent, if we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have those returns on investments, then what? Well,

I tell you, the retirement will have to keep coming to the Legislature for more funding ... which, again, reduces the revenue that we have to invest in education, public safety and other issues. What Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like the board to do is to take, for example, a three-year period and to say at the end of this three-year period if your projections have not been met, if you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t grown by the 8 percent investment, make concrete recommendations of how the difference will be made. ... I think we have a responsibility to deliver on our promises to retirees.â&#x20AC;? AP: Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve said repeatedly that you oppose expanding Medicaid under the federal Affordable Care Act. Do you still oppose it? Bryant: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll resist it. ... We would simply have to raise taxes or make draconian cuts in state budgets.â&#x20AC;? AP: You talk about wanting to expand the medical industry in Mississippi. People who support expanding Medicaid enrollment say the extra federal money could help drive the addition of more medical facilities and workers. Bryant: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a difference between looking at the world from a public view, a public political view, and a privatesector view. And the private-sector portion of me says to expand the health care industry as an economic driver that we need to bring in more doctors, more nurses, create more jobs. Now, creating those jobs through public dollars means that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to take money from someone else in Mississippi to provide those jobs. ... Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not as if doctors are going to move to Mississippi and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to all the sudden have just more nurses that magically appear. ... If tomorrow we began to expand Medicaid and in two years we added 300,000 Mississippians, all youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to do is reduce access to care for everyone. Because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re basically going to have the same population of doctors and nurses.â&#x20AC;?

Northwestern ends bowl drought Associated Press

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The stuffed monkey spent the last year in storage, out of sight but still in everyone’s mind. Coach Pat Fitzgerald dusted it off for the Gator Bowl and even had it on the sideline Tuesday as a reminder of Northwestern’s decadeslong, bowl losing streak — the ol’ monkey on their backs. Now, it’s in pieces. Behind huge interceptions early and late, No. 21 North-

western beat Mississippi State 34-20 and snapped college football’s longest postseason losing streak. The Wildcats (10-3) hadn’t won a bowl game since 1949, a nine-game skid that was tied with Notre Dame for the longest in NCAA history. It’s history now. And as a reward, Fitzgerald let his players rip the monkey to shreds in the locker room. “We’ve never been here before, but now we’re here and here to stay with a new streak you can talk about in

a positive fashion,” Fitzgerald said. Quentin Williams returned an interception 29 yards for a touchdown on the third play of the game and Nick VanHoose set up another touchdown with a 39-yard interception return in the fourth. Those plays were the difference in a back-and-forth game that featured more interceptions (seven) than touchdowns (six). In between, Northwestern’s two-quarterback sys-

tem kept the Bulldogs (8-5) off balance most of the day. Scrambler Kain Colter ran for 71 yards, making up for his two interceptions. Backup Trevor Siemian threw for 120 yards and an interception, and also ran for a score. Even with the turnovers, they were more efficient than Mississippi State’s Tyler Russell. Russell completed 12 of 28 passes for 106 yards, with two touchdowns and four inPlease see DROUGHT | 8A

Gators insist Cards are legit Associated Press

NEW ORLEANS — Florida seniors Jon Bostic and Omar Hunter are done dwelling on what might have been if not for their lone loss to Georgia. After finishing third in the BCS standings, one spot too low to play for a national title in Miami, the Gators asserted they remain highly motivated heading into Wednesday night’s Sugar Bowl against two-touchdown underdog Louisville. Hunter even suggested a victory for fourth-ranked Florida (11-1) over No. 22 Louisville (10-2) would be a “program changer,” because Florida has not been to a BCS bowl game since Tim Tebow left after the 2009 season. Last year, the Gators nearly missed out on the postseason, finishing the regular season 6-6 before posting a 2417 victory over Ohio State in the Gator Bowl. This season, only a 17-9 loss to Georgia on Oct. 27 got in their way. “Being able to get this program back to a BCS game and possibly winning the game is big for our program,” Hunter said. “Being able to say that you brought Florida back to the top before you left is going to be special for these seniors.” The Gators are hesitant to buy into the idea they’ll just roll over the champions of the Big East without much resistance. One reason is their familiarity with Louisville coach Charlie Strong, who was Florida’s defensive coordinator from 2003-09, a period that included national championships in the 2006 and 2008 seasons. “I played for his defense and I know how he talked to us and got us ready for games and I know their defense is going to be ready,” Hunter said. “Coach Charlie Strong is a great coach. He’s going to give everything he has to those guys and those guys are going to come out ready.” Strong has sought to motivate his players by playing up their underdog status. “Nobody really gives us a chance,” Louisville defensive end Marcus Smith said. “We kind of take that to heart and want to show everybody what we can do.” Cardinals safety Calvin Pryor said he believes Louisville will “shock the world.” “I have confidence in my team and the guys who I play with and I feel like this is a big statement game for us,” Pryor said. “I feel like we’re going to make big things happen on Wednesday.” Strong said he may get a little sentimental when he walks onto the Superdome field and sees some of the players he recruited on the other sideline and hears the Florida band play the fight songs with which he became so familiar over the years. Yet the importance of the game for Please see GATORS | 8A

Late touchdown pass decides Outback Bowl Associated Press

TAMPA, Fla. — Steve Spurrier’s plan to use two quarterbacks in the Outback Bowl worked so well that Dylan Thompson and Connor Shaw both earned game balls. That’s a first for the Head Ball Coach, who has a wellknown penchant for benching struggling QBs. Except

in this case, the Gamecocks’ winningest coach used his talented pair of passers by design. Shaw began Tuesday’s 33-28 victory over Michigan with a 56-yard touchdown pass to Damiere Byrd. Thompson closed it out by throwing a 32-yard TD strike to Bruce Ellington in the final minute to help

South Carolina match the school record for victories in a season. “I don’t know if I’ve ever given two quarterbacks a game ball, but today I said: ‘Hey, we’ve got to give them to both you guys,”’ Spurrier said. “Both those young men are just so super team-oriented. There’s no jealousy,

nothing. ... Those guys are just really, really good teammates. Wonderful team players,” the coach added. “We tried to tell Connor: ‘It’s your game.’ And it was his game, but Dylan was going to play. He understood that. It worked beautifully as it turned out.” Please see OUTBACK | 8A

Murray’s touchdowns lift Georgia in Capital One Bowl Associated Press

ORLANDO, Fla. — Aaron Murray wanted nothing more this week than to send Georgia’s senior class out with a game to remember. The junior quarterback provided a record-setting performance to make it a reality. Murray threw five touchdown passes to set a Georgia bowl record, including two in the fourth quarter, as

the sixth-ranked Bulldogs beat No. 23 Nebraska 45-31 in the Capital One Bowl on Tuesday. Murray shook off a pair of first-half interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown, and passed for 427 yards — also a Bulldogs’ bowl record — against the nation’s top-ranked passing defense. He was the game’s most valuable player on the way to earning his first bowl

victory at Georgia. Georgia (12-2) also reached 12 wins for the third time in school history. “I don’t know what it’s like to head into an offseason with a win,” Murray said. “It’s a great feeling to get a win. It’s great for the seniors, who have meant so much to this team. They’ve done a great job of leading this team the whole season. “To get 12 wins...That’s

something special.” Nebraska (10-4) lost its third consecutive bowl game, and finished the season with two straight woeful defensive performances. The Cornhuskers lost the Big Ten championship game 70-31. The Cornhuskers led 24-23 at the half, but committed two of their three Please see CAPITAL | 8A

Basketball NBA standings, schedule


Thompson replaced Shaw during the winning drive, covering the final 43 yards after Shaw began the march from his own 30 and kept it alive with a 6-yard completion to Ace Sanders on a fourthand-3 play. Devin Gardner’s third TD pass of the game had given Michigan a 28-27 lead. “I wasn’t nervous. I knew I had great guys around me, and I trusted them and just was confident,” Thompson said. Shaw threw for 227 yards and two touchdowns after missing the Gamecocks’ regular-season finale with a left foot sprain. Thompson led the Gamecocks (11-2) to a victory at archrival Clemson, and threw for 117 yards and two TDs in the bowl. Gardner threw for 214 yards in his fifth start for Michigan (8-5) since Denard Robinson injured his right elbow late in the season. Robinson took some snaps at quarterback and even attempted his first passes in a game since Oct. 27, but lined up mostly at running back and rushed for 100 yards on 23 carries. Sanders caught TD passes of 4 yards from Thompson and 31 yards from Shaw, who completed 18 of 26 passes before aggravating his foot injury and limping off during the final drive. The speedy receiver had nine catches for 92 yards and also scored on a 63-yard punt return — one of four plays over 50 yards yielded by Michigan.


terceptions. He had only thrown six picks in the first 11 games this season. He threw interceptions on Mississippi State’s first two possessions and tossed another one early in the second quarter. After falling behind 13-0, Russell settled down and got the Bulldogs back in the game. “I talked to him going into the locker room after the third pick, said ‘Go into the locker room, splash some water on your face, readjust your pads and forget that you came out to start the game,”’ said coach Dan Mullen, whose team lost five of its final six games. “’Get in the tunnel, start jumping up and down again, get yourself tight and run out of the tunnel again.”’ It worked as Mississippi State tied the game at 13 in the third quarter. On the other sideline, there had to be a sense of panic. After all, the Wildcats had blown three double-digit leads in the second half of three games this season. Northwestern surrendered big leads against Penn State, Nebraska and Michigan. That ‘here-we-go-again’ feeling easily could have taken over when Mississippi State seized momentum. But the Wildcats didn’t flinch. They responded with Siemian directing a 76yard drive that put NU up for good. Tyris Jones bowled in from 3 yards out. Siemian added a 4-yard TD run — set up by Colter’s 31-yard scamper — that made it 27-13 with 26 seconds remaining in the third. That came after Russell’s fourth pick, the one VanHoose grabbed near midfield. “I feel like a big burden has been lifted off our shoulders,” Colter said.

Strong has more to do with matching his team against an opponent from the Southeastern Conference, home to national title winners the past six years, than the fact he used to coach in the Swamp. “It’s going to be key for our program because we have a chance to go play a Southeastern Conference opponent, an opponent that’s one game away from playing for a national championship,” Strong said. “If you look at the Southeastern Conference, look at the national championships over the last few years, it speaks for itself. ... Our team, they’re really excited about it.” Strong had a chance to rejoin the SEC as Tennessee’s head coach, but chose instead to remain at Louisville, an indication of how far he believes he can take Cardinals football, particularly if he keeps prolific sophomore quarterback Teddy Bridgewater around the next couple seasons. Bridgewater, an exceptional passer and scrambler, ranked eighth in the nation in pass efficiency, throwing for 3,452 yards and 25 TDs.

turnovers in the final 30 minutes. Taylor Martinez had two interceptions and two touchdown passes for Nebraska and Rex Burkhead rushed 140 yards in his final college game. But Nebraska coach Bo Pelini said the efficiency of Murray and Georgia on third down (finished 12 for 17) was too much to overcome. “I thought the plan was good,” Pelini said of his team’s defensive scheme. “Third down hurt us, obviously. When were in position, it was man on man down the field. We needed to make some of those plays and we didn’t. And, you know, again, that cost us a football game.” Nebraska drops to 12-7 against SEC opponents in bowl games. Trailed by questions about his team’s focus following its narrow loss to Alabama in the SEC championship game, Georgia coach Mark Richt said Tuesday was also about a team that finished 5 yards shy of a BCS title game-berth finding closure. “We wanted to win this game to prove to our-

selves that we are one of the better teams in the country,” Richt said. “I think our guys did a good job of sucking it up when they were tired... But when you make a big play here and there, it gives you a little more energy as well...We made enough big plays at the right moment.” Nebraska’s offense finished with 443 total yards, but the Bulldogs defense was stingy when it needed to be. They sacked Martinez five times, with junior All-American linebacker Jarvis Jones notching two. Damian Swann had both Georgia interceptions. With his two sacks Jones set a single-season record for with 14.5 sacks for the season. He will now decide in the coming days whether or not to enter the NFL draft. “I think our coaches did a great job of halftime adjustments and got us out there adjusting to what they were calling and got us players honed in,” Jones said. “Like coach Richt says, it’s a 60-minute game and you’ve got to fight all 60 minutes.” Murray found Keith Marshall free near the sideline for a 24-yard

touchdown pass that gave Georgia a 38-31 lead with 14:52 to play in the game. Following a Nebraska punt, Murray then hit Chris Conley for a short pass in space over the middle. Conley outran the Cornhuskers defenders for an 87-yard score. That play came after a 49-yard touchdown catch by Conley that helped Georgia tie the game in the third quarter. Nebraska clung to a 2423 lead at the half, taking back the advantage late in the second quarter via a 16-yard strike from Martinez to Burkhead. After a pair of early turnovers, Murray seemed to be getting Georgia’s offense back on track, as the Bulldogs punctuated a four-play, 38-yard drive with a 24yard touchdown run by Todd Gurley to make it 23-17. Both Bulldogs’ turnovers came via Murray interceptions as the nation’s top-ranked passing defense crowded Georgia’s receivers and disguised their coverage schemes. Gurley helped open things up, though, rushing for 81 yards in the opening 30 minutes.

Rearview mirror 2012 From Daytona to Homestead, it was a season to remember As the calendar rolls over from 2012 to 2013, and the NASCAR guys and gals get away from the tracks for a few weeks, it’s time to look back at the big stories of the recently completed Sprint Cup season.


t’s often been said that the season-opening Daytona 500, NASCAR’s biggest race, sets the tone for the entire year. First, there was the rain that came on race day and forced the only rainout of the history of the 500. But the news wasn’t all bad, because that put NASCAR racing live on prime time TV for the first time ever. That switch led to the highest number of viewers ever to watch a FOX race broadcast. Then there was the fire, when Juan Pablo Montoya lost control of his car and slammed into a jet dryer, igniting a spectacular blaze and causing a two-hour delay while repairs were made to the track. Luckily for NASCAR, just as it looked like the TV audience might tune out because of the delay, Brad Keselowski whipped out his cell phone and began Tweeting about the incident. In addition to gaining about 100,000 Twitter followers, he gave NASCAR’s social media initiative a huge boost. Later in the season, NASCAR decided cell phones in race cars were a bad idea and fined Keselowski $25,000 for Tweeting from his car during a red flag at Phoenix. Finally, at the end of the 500, there was Matt Kenseth winning his second Daytona 500. That victory, in addition to his solid performance throughout the season, made his mid-year announcement that he was leaving his RoushFenway Racing team for Joe Gibbs Racing even more startling. He’s taking over the No. 20 Toyota formerly driven by Joey Logano, who is moving to the No. 22 at Penske Racing as a teammate to Keselowski. Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s strong runner-up run at Daytona was the start of a comeback season for NASCAR’s most popular driver. He broke a 143-race winless streak at Michigan in June and made the cut for the Chase for the Sprint Cup. Also grabbing headlines at Daytona were the rules infractions by Jimmie Johnson’s No. 48 crew. NASCAR initially suspended crew chief Chad Knaus and car chief Ron Malec, docked the team 25 points and fined Knaus $100,000 for improper modifications to their car. The team appealed, and in a stunning move, NASCAR Chief Appellate Officer John Middlebrook overturned the most damaging parts of the penalties, leaving in place only the fine against Knaus. The drama that began at Daytona continued throughout the season. Both races at Bristol Motor Speedway produced interesting results. The Food City 500 in March, won by Keselowski, saw seas of empty seats in the grandstands, prompting track owner Bruton Smith to grind portions of the pavement in an attempt to bring back the “old Bristol” that

He ran a total of four races for Phoenix Racing.

Kyle Busch, driver of the No. 18 Toyota, and Brad Keselowski, driver of the No. 2 Dodge, in an incident during the Finger Lakes 355 at the Glen at Watkins Glen International on August 12. (NASCAR photo) often saw slam-bang racing because of the lack of multiple grooves. But when the night race in August got under way, the top of the track that had been ground in an attempt to keep drivers on the bottom, actually proved to be the preferred line. But fans were entertained as in the past, thanks in large part to Tony Stewart and Matt Kenseth. After the two crashed while racing for the lead, Stewart got out of his car and threw his helmet at Kenseth’s car, bouncing it off the front end. Denny Hamlin took the win, one of his five for the season. NASCAR’s return trip to Daytona in July produced another stunning story. Just before the start of the race, NASCAR announced that Penske Racing driver A.J. Allmendinger had been temporarily suspended from NASCAR because he didn’t pass a random drug test.

The Finger Lakes 355 at Watkins Glen on Aug. 12 turned out to be more significant than most races. Kyle Busch, who put aside much of his participation in the Nationwide and Camping World Truck series to concentrate on winning a Sprint Cup championship, was in position to essentially sew up a Chase berth before the last lap at the Glen. But while leading on the final circuit, he spun after contact with Brad Keselowski, who finished second in the race. Marcos Ambrose then made a daring move on Keselowski to get the victory, which helped his Richard Petty Motorsports team continue to receive much-needed funding from Ford Motor Company. As for Busch, he missed the cut for the Chase and finished the season with just one Cup win and none in either the Nationwide or Truck Series. That’s in contrast to 2011 when he had 18 combined wins, to 2010 when he had 24 and to 2009 when he had 21. Safety also was an issue in 2012. Dale Earnhardt Jr. was among those saying early on that racing is plenty safe these days. “The cars are safe, and we are not in physical danger of injury,” he said at Watkins Glen. But just a few weeks later, on Aug. 29, Earnhardt suffered a concussion in a hard crash during a tire test at Kansas Speedway. He kept his injuries to himself until a second crash, at Talladega Superspeedway on Oct.7. At that point he was diagnosed with concussions and was forced to miss the next two races. He wound up 12th in the final points standings

The 10-race championship-deciding Chase for the Sprint Cup played out in dramatic fashion as it boiled down to a one-on-one between Keselowski, in his third full year of Sprint Cup racing, and the five-time champion, Johnson, in his 11th. Keselowski won the Chase opener at Chicagoland Speedway and was never lower than second in points throughout the final 10 races. Johnson came on strong at the end, winning at Martinsville and Texas and holding the points lead after those two races. But in the next-to-last race at Phoenix, Johnson crashed hard and fell to 20 points behind Keselowski entering the finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway. In the Ford 400, pit strategy had put Johnson in position to win the race and possibly the championship before a penalty on pit road put him behind. Then a mechanical issue with the rear gear on his No. 48 sealed the title for Keselowski, who raced conservatively and finished 15th. Johnson’s struggles opened the door for Clint Bowyer to take the runner-up spot in the standings, capping off a remarkable three-win first season with Michael Waltrip Racing. Bowyer also was involved in a couple of “old-school” NASCAR moments. His risky move in the closing laps in the first Martinsville race caused a crash that ended what would have been a storybook moment for team owner Rick Hendrick. Two of his drivers, Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson, were at the front of the pack and in position to claim the 200th Cup win for Hendrick at the track where he got his first Cup victory and where he lost family members and friends in a plane crash. Instead, they were collected in a crash that set the stage for a win by Ryan Newman. But Bowyer didn’t get off scot-free. In the next-to-last race of the year, at Phoenix, Gordon paid him back by intentionally wrecking him. Then, in the final race of the year, the race for the win came down to none other than Gordon and Bowyer. Gordon won the race, the 87th victory of his Cup career. Bowyer’s second-place finish gave him a one-point edge over Jimmie Johnson in the race for the runner-up spot in the standings. A great start at Daytona and an equally thrilling ending at Homestead made for one memorable season and raise high hopes for the new NASCAR year.




NASCAR unveils personnel moves NASCAR has announced several changes in its competition department. Joe Balash, who has served as the Nationwide Series director since 2004, will become international Competition Liaison, working with NASCAR circuits in Mexico, Canada and Europe. Wayne Auton moves up from his post a director of the Camping World Truck Series to take Balash’s old job with the Nationwide Series. He will be replaced by Chad Little, who leaves his job as director of the Whelen Modified Tour. Balash now will report to Richard Buck, who has been promoted to managing director, Competition GRAND-AM and managing director, Touring Series NASCAR. Auton and Little will continue to report to John Darby, managing director, competition and Sprint Cup Series director. Brad Moran, now the Canadian Tire Series director, will serve in the role of director of Touring Series, NASCAR, and will report to Buck.

Home & Garden

Wednesday, January 2, 2013

Make garden resolutions for a happy 2013 I have made it my tradition for the last couple of years to suggest some New Year’s resolutions for the home gardener to consider. This year, I’m changing that up a bit by sharing some of my own garden resolutions for 2 0 1 3 . Maybe you will see Gary y o u r s e l f Bachman in some of what I reSouthern solve to do Gardening next year. When I speak to garden clubs and other groups, people often comment that my own landscape must be beautiful. I always answer, “Sometimes yes, but sometimes the landscape can look a little weedy and like it needs some pruning.” For those times when it looks rough, I use the analogy of the shoemaker’s kids who run around barefoot. I’m like every other busy gardener, and sometimes it seems there isn’t enough time in the day for all I need to get done. I resolve for 2013 to be more diligent in the regular day-to-day maintenance of my home landscape. Last year, I suggested that gardeners keep a photo journal to document what works and what they’d like to repeat. I take a lot of pictures in my home garden and landscape, but I’m not very good at organizing the images. Adding dates and descriptions seems

like a lot of work, especially if you are like me and fill up an 8 GB storage card with pictures every week. I resolve for 2013 to

keep my home garden and landscape pictures filed in an orderly fashion and to share them on Facebook. Like me on Facebook at “Southern Gardening” to

see what I’m up to. Many of my gardening friends know I have quite the home vegetable garden. I really enjoy the taste of homegrown veg-

etables and take satisfaction in knowing that my home garden can produce good, nutritious food. This is something every gardener can do regardless of the size of his or her garden. One crop I grow but don’t consume is fresh heirloom tomatoes. I grow these for my wife. My friends are shocked as I explain that I don’t eat them because it’s a texture thing. Once the heirloom tomatoes are canned, it’s

a different story. I resolve for 2013 -- and this is the big one -- to learn to eat and enjoy fresh heirloom tomatoes picked right off the vine. When talking about taking care of the landscape, one of the big issues to deal with is how to keep our plants watered. Let’s face it: water is too expensive to waste with inefficient application. An efficient and easy way to control water application is to install microirrigation in the landscape and garden. This method can use up to 70 percent less water than overhead watering methods use. All the components are readily available at local home improvement centers. I water many of my plantings with emitters that release 1 to 2 gallons directly to the plants’ root zones. No waste. But I have not yet completed the task of having the entire garden and landscape set up on microirrigation. I resolve for 2013 to save money on the monthly water bill by having all my garden and landscape watered on my microirrigation system. I am sure some of these resolutions will go by the wayside. (Want to bet it’s eating the fresh tomatoes?) But if I only complete a couple, I know that 2013 will be a good year in my garden and landscape. Happy New Year!

Bisexual woman mulls coming out DEAR ABBY: After years of denial I have come to realize that I am bisexual. I’m happily married to a straight man, and we have a great marriage I wouldn’t change for the world. He is my soul mate, and we plan to be together for many years to come. I just happen to be physically attracted to women, too. Some people say I can’t be bisexual if I’ve never been with a woman; I say they’re wrong. How do I deal with this in social situations? I’m afraid to put it on my social media profile for fear of a backlash from my family. I’d like my friends to know, but it doesn’t feel proper to just come out and say, “I’m bi.” I was hoping some of your readers might be able to give me some input. I’m not sure what to do with my revelation. I have pondered it for some time now, and felt I could trust you to give me tactful, unbiased advice. -- BI IN THE DEEP SOUTH DEAR B.I.T.D.S.: Bisexuality is having an attraction to people of both sexes, and yes, it is possible to be bisexual with-

out having acted upon it. H o w ever, being married means you Abigail are (hapVan Buren pily) involved in Dear Abby a monogamous relationship. To announce that you are bisexual would be a mistake, in my opinion, not only because it would shock your family, but also because it might seem like you were advertising that you are “available.” Unless you are promiscuous, you are not available. If you choose to confide your diverse sexual orientation to your close friends, that is your business. But if you do, please remember that once two people know something, there’s a strong likelihood of the news spreading faster than the flu. (Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.)

Horoscopes BY HOLIDAY MATHIS With the number of hours we’ve spent in 2013 still in the double digits, the Virgo moon guides the fresh year in practical action that resonates well with the Capricorn sun. Mercury in Capricorn also offers a cosmic tip: Watch out for reserved types. People who seem emotionally low-key are often highly driven and passionately motivated. ARIES (March 21-April 19). You feel driven and tenacious now, but can you keep this up in the days, weeks and months to come? Make a longterm plan that includes checkpoints. Accountability will be key. TAURUS (April 20May 20). In a sense, you’re on a never-ending journey, and therefore you cannot expect to arrive anytime soon -- or anytime at all, really. This should help you relax and enjoy yourself. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If you want to know what a big-time success looks like, look in the mirror. You are capable of greatness. Whatever strides you make today are just the beginning. Keep track of them. You’ll want to remember them later. CANCER (June 22July 22). While trying to stick to the moral high road, distracting thoughts could have you wondering what exactly is in it for you? You are, after all, a human being and not a saint. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your actions will reflect your basic belief that everyone is on the same level. You see those who try to separate people into classes as sadly misguided, and you’re right. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Don’t be a good soldier in the army of life. If you’re not headed where you want to go, stop marching and step out of line. Expect trial and error. Don’t settle for taking orders from an invisible leader. LIBRA (Sept. 23-

Oct. 23). Your efforts to create rapport may not seem to be working, but they really are. The connection will be made. Note that it’s much easier to have an influence over people who like you. SCORPIO (Oct. 24Nov. 21). People always want what they can’t have. You know this, and you intuitively feel compelled to create a sense of scarcity around what you have to offer. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Nothing attracts a crowd like a crowd. “Everyone is doing it” is an idea that many influencers use to add numbers to their group. You’ll use this principle in some way today. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). When you find yourself thinking you don’t have control over a situation, look for all the ways in which you do have control. There is always something to be done. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18). Rejection is no fun, and most people will do anything to avoid it. Yet, the only way to make exciting things happen in your life is to risk rejection. So you’ll gladly take the risk today. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Everyone has something to join and follow these days, but finding the truly worthy cause is still a challenge. Research will be necessary in order to see past the superficial to the actual work being done. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 2). You don’t even have to think about all the kind words you say. They naturally flow from your compassionate heart, connecting and endearing you to the people who make your life wonderful this year. The opportunities you attract with your compassion will move you to new places. You’ll earn big from a July sale. Aries and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 15, 2, 9, 3 and 17. GREEN RESOLUTION CHALLENGE PART

Today in history TWO: Join the Green Revolution by making a green resolution. What can you do this year to save the planet? I challenge you to pick a green resolution and keep it all year. What’s the resolution earth signs TAURUS, VIRGO and CAPRICORN are most likely to keep all year? The kinship these signs feel with the other living things on this planet may compel earth signs to start bringing their own bags to the store. The one trillion disposable plastic bags used worldwide every year are over-filling landfills and killing animals, especially in the oceans. It’s a truly needless waste considering how easy it is to bring your own reusable bags. Air signs GEMINI, LIBRA and AQUARIUS will feel motivated to do their part to keep emissions low by getting regular car tune-ups, making fewer trips and carpooling whenever possible. Some will go so far as to use more public transportation or purchase electric or hybrid cars. Since there are many ways to reduce carbon emissions, these air signs would benefit from one simple resolution: use less oil daily. Note that recycling also helps in this effort, as the oil used in creating plastic containers is considerable. CELEBRITY PROFILES: Gorgeous Capricorn actress Kate Bosworth will appear with an all-star cast in the multi-storied comedy “Movie 43.” A star since age 14, Bosworth has learned to navigate the celebrity world, keep it separate from her personal life and simplify that balance. Her secret: “I keep everything private private.” Spoken like someone born with Saturn in Scorpio.

Today is Wednesday, Jan. 2, the second day of 2013. There are 363 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Jan. 2, 1788, Georgia became the fourth state to ratify the U.S. Constitution. On this date: In 1893, the U.S. Postal Service issued its first commemorative stamp to honor the World’s Columbian Expedition and the quadricentennial of Christopher Columbus’ voyage. In 1900, Secretary of State John Hay announced the “Open Door Policy” to facilitate trade with China. In 1921, the play that coined the term “robot,” ‘‘R.U.R.” (Rossum’s Universal Robots) by Karel Capek, was first performed in Czechoslovakia. In 1935, Bruno Hauptmann went on trial in Flemington, N.J., on charges of kidnapping and murdering the 20-month-old son of Charles and Anne Lindbergh. (Hauptmann was found guilty, and executed.) In 1942, the Philippine capital of Manila was captured by Japanese forces during World War II. In 1959, the Soviet Union launched its space probe Luna 1, the first manmade object to fly past the moon, its apparent intended target. In 1960, Sen. John F. Kennedy of Massachusetts launched his successful bid for the presidency. In 1971, 66 people were killed in a pileup of spectators leaving a soccer match at Ibrox Stadium in Glasgow, Scotland. In 1974, President Richard M. Nixon signed legislation requiring states to limit highway speeds to 55 miles an hour. (Federal speed limits were abolished in 1995). In 1981, police in Sheffield, England, arrested Peter Sutcliffe, who confessed to being the “Yorkshire Ripper,” the serial killer of 13 women. In 1983, the musical play “Annie” closed on Broadway after a run of

2,377 performances. In 2006, 12 miners died in a methane gas explosion at the Sago Mine in West Virginia, W.Va., but one miner, Randal McCloy Jr., was eventually rescued. Ten years ago: President George W. Bush, seeking to counter Democratic criticisms that his economic policies favored the rich, said the economic stimulus plan he was going to unveil the following week would focus on jobs and the unemployed. Sydney Omarr, the astrologer to the stars whose horoscopes appeared in more than 200 newspapers, died in Santa Monica, Calif., at age 76. Five years ago: The Justice Department opened a full criminal investigation into the destruction of CIA interrogation videotapes. (A special prosecutor later cleared the CIA’s former top clandestine officer and others.) Pakistan pushed back parliamentary elections until Feb. 18, a six-week delay prompted by rioting that followed the assassination of opposition leader Benazir Bhutto. Oil prices soared to $100 a barrel for the first time. Latenight talk shows returned to the air two months into a writers strike. (David Letterman and Craig Ferguson had reached agreements to allow writers to work on their shows; Jay Leno, Conan O’Brien and ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel returned without theirs.)

One year ago: A gas pipeline in central Syria exploded; the government blamed “terrorists” while the opposition accused officials of playing on fears of religious extremism and terrorism to rally support behind President Bashar Assad. No. 3 Oklahoma State beat No. 4 Stanford 4138 in overtime in the Fiesta Bowl. No. 6 Oregon beat No. 9 Wisconsin 45-38 in the Rose Bowl. Today’s Birthdays: Country musician Harold Bradley is 87.

2012 another record-setter, fits climate forecasts BY SETH BORENSTEIN AP Science Writer

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; As 2012 began, winter in the U.S. went AWOL. Spring and summer arrived early with wildfires, blistering heat and drought. And fall hit the eastern third of the country with the ferocity of Superstorm Sandy. This past yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s weather was deadly, costly and record-breaking everywhere â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but especially in the United States. If that sounds familiar, it should. The previous year also was one for the record books. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had two years now of some angry events,â&#x20AC;? said Deke Arndt, U.S. National Climatic Data Center monitoring chief. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hoping that 2013 is really boring.â&#x20AC;? In 2012 many of the warnings scientists have made about global warming went from dry studies in scientific journals to real-life video played before our eyes: Record melting of the ice in the Arctic Ocean. U.S. cities baking at 95 degrees or hotter. Widespread drought. Flooding. Storm surge inundating swaths of New York City. All of that was predicted years ago by climate scientists and all of that happened in 2012. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What was predicted was there would be more of these things,â&#x20AC;? said Michel Jarraud, secretary

general for the World Meteorological Organization. Globally, five countries this year set heat records, but none set cold records. 2012 is on track to be the warmest year on record in the United States. Worldwide, the average through November suggests it will be the eighth warmest since global record-keeping began in 1880. July was the hottest month in record-keeping U.S. history, averaging 77.6 degrees. Over the year, more than 69,000 local heat records were set â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including 356 locations in 34 states that hit their highest-ever temperature mark. Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heartland lurched from one extreme to the other without stopping at â&#x20AC;&#x153;normal.â&#x20AC;? Historic flooding in 2011 gave way to devastating drought in 2012. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The normal has changed, I guess,â&#x20AC;? said U.S. National Weather Service acting director Laura Furgione. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The normal is extreme.â&#x20AC;? While much of the U.S. struggled with drought that conjured memories of the Dust Bowl, parts of Africa, Russia, Pakistan, Colombia, Australia and China dealt with the other extreme: deadly and expensive flooding. But the most troubling climate development this year was the melting at the top of the world, Jar-

raud said. Summer sea ice in the Arctic shrank to 18 percent below the previous record low. The normally ice-packed Arctic passages were open to shipping much of the summer, more than ever before, and a giant Russian tanker carrying liquefied natural gas made a delivery that way to prove how valuable this route has become, said Mark Serreze, director of the National Snow and Ice Data Center. Also in Greenland, 97 percent of the surface ice sheet had some melting. Changes in the Arctic alter the rest of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s weather and â&#x20AC;&#x153;melting of the ice means an amplifying of the warming,â&#x20AC;? Jarraud said. There were other weather extremes no one predicted: A European winter cold snap that killed more than 800 people. A bizarre summer windstorm called a derecho in the U.S. midAtlantic that left millions without power. Antarctic sea ice that inched to a record high. More than a foot of post-Thanksgiving rain in the western U.S. Super Typhoon Bopha, which killed hundreds of people in the Philippines and was the southernmost storm of its kind. The United States has had â&#x20AC;&#x153;some quiet years while the rest of the world was quite wild,â&#x20AC;? but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

not the case this year, Arndt said. Insurance giant Munich Re in a report this fall concluded: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nowhere in the world is the rising number of annual natural catastrophes more evident than in North America.â&#x20AC;? In 2011, the United States set a record with 14 billion-dollar weather disasters. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has a preliminary count of 11 such disasters this year. And NOAAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s official climate extreme index, which tallies disasters and rare events like super-hot days, is on pace to set its own record. Arndt points to the geographic heart of America, the Mississippi River, as emblematic. On May 6, 2011, the Mississippi River at New Madrid, Mo., crested at its highest point on record. Less than 16 months later on Aug. 30, 2012, the same spot on the river was more than 53 feet lower, hitting an all-time low water mark. The U.S. went through the same lurching extremes on tornadoes. Those storms killed 553 people last year, Furgione said. This year began with many tornadoes, then in April they just stopped. April to November, normal tornado season, saw the fewest F1 or stronger tornadoes in the U.S.

ever. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every year is bringing different types of extreme weather and climate events,â&#x20AC;? NOAA chief Jane Lubchenco said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All storms today are happening in a climate-altered world.â&#x20AC;? Not everything is connected to man-made global warming, climate scientists say. Some, like tornadoes, have no scientifically discernible connection. Others, like the East Coast superstorm, will be studied to see if climate change is a cause, although scientists say rising sea levels clearly worsened flooding. They are more convinced that the heat waves of last summer are connected to global warming. These are â&#x20AC;&#x153;clearly not freak events,â&#x20AC;? but â&#x20AC;&#x153;systemic changes,â&#x20AC;? said climate scientist Stefan Rahmstorf of the Potsdam Institute in Germany. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With all the extremes that, really, every year in the last 10 years have struck different parts of the globe, more and more people absolutely realize that climate change is here and already hitting us.â&#x20AC;? In 1988, NASA scientist James Hansen, sometimes called the godfather of global warming science, ran computer models that predicted the decade of the 2010s would see many more 95-degree or hotter days and much

fewer subfreezing days. This year made Hansenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s predictions seemed like underestimates. For example, he predicted that in the 2010s Memphis would have on average 26 days of more than 95 degrees. This year there were 47. Scientists have warned for more than a decade about a hurricane with big storm surge hitting New York City and flooding the subways. That happened with Sandy. Though it was never a major hurricane, it stretched across nearly 1,000 miles in the U.S., bringing storm surges, power outages to millions and even snow. Sandy killed more than 125 people in the United States and at least 70 in the Caribbean. For decades, scientists have predicted extensive droughts from global warming. This year, the drought of 2012 was so extensive that nearly 2,300 counties â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in almost every state â&#x20AC;&#x201D; were declared agriculture disasters. And with lack of water, came fire. Fire season in the U.S. came earlier than normal and lasted longer, officials said. Nearly 9.2 million acres â&#x20AC;&#x201D; an area bigger than the state of Maryland â&#x20AC;&#x201D; have been burned by wildfire, the third most since accurate recordkeeping began in 1960.
