Scam terrifies parent, kidnapper seeks ransom BY BRANT SAPPINGTON firstname.lastname@example.org
A Crossroads area woman was left terrified for the safety of her child recently before learning it was all just a scam. The Prentiss County woman reported to law enforcement she had received an anonymous call stating her son had been kidnapped by some type of gang and asking for ransom money for his release. She re-
ported the call to law enforcement and was able to determine that her son was safe and the call was a hoax. Prentiss County Sheriff Randy Tolar said the woman’s report was the first time he had heard of this particular version of the scam. However, shortly after she reported it to his department he began hearing other reports of scammers using a similar hoax in the coun-
ty. “These scammers change their methods regularly trying to stay a step ahead,” he said. A similar scam has been making the rounds for years. Tolar said the most common version involves callers claiming to be the victim’s child or grandchild and stating they had been robbed while traveling somewhere far away and need money to be wired so they
can get back home. Anyone who receives a frightening or suspicious call or e-mail of this nature is encouraged to contact law enforcement to determine if it’s true before taking any action. “It breaks my heart to hear about someone that has been taken in one of these scams,” said Tolar. He said the best advice he can give to residents is if some-
thing sounds too good to be true or too far fetched to be true, it probably is. People need to be skeptical of any unsolicited call or e-mail. He also warns of the ongoing variety of prize scams and reminds everyone that if someone says they’ve won a prize but must pay a fee to collect it, it is a scam. No legitimate contest will require a fee to collect a prize.
Burn victim remains in serious condition BY JEBB JOHNSTON email@example.com
One victim was seriously injured in Friday night’s house fire while the other has been released from the hospital. A 9-month-old who was in the home at 1803 East Fifth St. has been released and is doing well, said Assistant Fire Chief John Wood. However, Don Pruitt, who dropped the baby out a window to safety, has serious in-
juries and is at the burn center at Crossgates River Oaks Hospital in Brandon. The investigation remains open and a cause of the fire has not been determined. Wood said the state fire marshal’s office has visited the scene, and it could take weeks to learn the findings. The fire department cannot confirm reports of an explosion accompanying the fire.

Ice storm preparation
As the Crossroads area braced for a possible ice storm Tuesday evening, people began taking precautions. Gardner’s employee Chris Gardner took time out from his job at the market to stock up on bread. The National Weather Service forecast an upper level disturbance to bring a round of precipitation and potentially icy troubles to the area through early Wednesday morning. Motorists were urged to drive with extreme caution, especially over bridges and overpasses. County schools were closed Tuesday and many meetings were postponed. Going into the evening hours Tuesday, Corinth had a steady rain for most of the day and no reports of any traffic accidents.
IUKA — A Corinth man remains jailed in Tishomingo County following an arrest for the sale of cocaine. According to Tishomingo County Sheriff Glenn Whitlock, Rodney Grayson was arrested by deputies and also faces the same charge in Alcorn County. In other arrests in Tishomingo County:
■ Iuka's Tina Weathers was arrested on three counts of sale of a controlled substance. Weathers, on probation at the time of the arrest, remains in custody at the Tishomingo County Jail with a hold placed on her by the Mississippi Department of Corrections. ■ Karen Carter of Iuka was arrested for two counts of sale of a controlled substance.

Northeast promotes Hopewell Church celebrates unity Ford to vice president BY STEVE BEAVERS
For the Daily Corinthian
BOONEVILLE — Former Northeast Mississippi Community College head women’s basketball coach and current dean of students and athletic director Ricky Ford has been named the college’s new executive vice president. Ford will move into the new position effective Feb. 1 and will take the place of Dr. Larry Nabors. Dr. Nabors has accepted Mississippi Delta Community College’s offer to be the new president, which opened the door for Ford. “Ricky Ford has been an institutional asset for more than 31 years,” Northeast president Dr. Johnny L. Allen said. “I value his judgment and look forward to working with him in the capacity of Executive Vice President.” On March 7, 2011 Ford announced he was stepping down as women's basketball coach at Northeast but continued to be the athletic director and eventually accepted the role of dean of
Ricky Ford students after the retirement of Kenneth Pounders in the Spring of 2011. “I have a tremendous passion for Northeast Mississippi ComPlease see FORD | 3A

JACKSON—Gov. Phil Bryant marked significant progress toward his goals of bringing more physicians to Mississippi and growing the state’s health care economy as he helped break ground on a $63 million expansion to permit larger class sizes at the University of Mississippi School of Medicine. In October 2012, Bryant directed $10 million in grant funding to the School of Medicine to launch the effort. The new 151,000 square-foot facility will provide new classrooms and laboratory space, allowing the School of Medicine to increase the number of students it admits to each incoming class from 135 to more than 160. “I am thrilled to break ground on this expansion of the School of Medicine,” Bryant said. “Mississippi is in need of more bright, skilled physicians to provide quality medical care to our residents and to those patients from other states who seek outstanding care in Mississippi, and this state-

for an end to racism in the United States. The speech was a defining moment of the American Civil Rights Movement. Churches as well as other organizations and individuals are encouraged to make signs with their names on them. A video will be made commemorating the event. “It is so awesome that 50 years later people still remember the speech,” said Spence. “It wasn’t about color, it was about people working together.” Several guest choirs
from around the area will be providing the music. The church is also planning to recognize the NAACP and other organizations for its support of King’s non-violence movement. “Hopefully, we will get that same feeling as those who attended the march,” said Spence. The event is free and a small reception will be held following the program. “We hope we have the problem of seeing how many people our life center holds,” added Spence. Hopewell Church is located on 464 Highway 356.

UMMC vice chancellor for health affairs and School of Medicine dean, said the expansion will help address Mississippi’s medical needs. “Today’s ceremony marks a defining step in building the space we need to train Mississippi’s next generations of physicians. This new School of Medicine facility directly addresses our mission to educate health-care providers for Mississippi’s vast medical needs,” Keeton said. “We’re grateful to Gov. Bryant, the state Legislature and Mississippi Development Authority for recognizing how training more physicians for Mississippi will impact the state’s economy, and we’re glad to continue working with the state’s leadership to improve the future of health care in Mississippi.” Bryant worked closely with the Mississippi Economic Council to develop a comprehensive strategy for growing Mississippi’s health care economy, and increasing the state’s capacity to train physicians is key component of the plan.
“Blueprint Mississippi’s Health Care as an Economic Driver study focuses on the importance of building our capacity of physicians, and the new medical school is a ground breaking effort toward both attracting and training the best and the brightest,” said Blake A. Wilson, president and CEO of the Mississippi Economic Council, the state Chamber of Commerce. “It is another world class visionary move toward putting our state in the place of greatest opportunity.” During the 2012 legislative session, Bryant signed into law House Bill 317 to establish more medical residency programs throughout the state, a move that will allow more Mississippitrained physicians to remain in the state. This session, Bryant will continue to pursue efforts to increase the number of physicians practicing in Mississippi’s most medically underserved communities. The school of medicine expansion is expected to create about 930 jobs during construction.

of-the-art expansion will allow us to provide better training to even more students. “Not only will this help us reach our goal of training more physicians to provide better health care access, these new doctors will create a significant economic impact in the communities where they practice. I have said before that health care is an industry of necessity, and Mississippi is taking an important step today to proactively grow its health care economy.” The School of Medicine projects that the larger class sizes accommodated by the new facility will generate about $1.7 billion in economic impact in Mississippi by 2025 and that the additional physicians trained will support more than 19,000 new jobs by the same year. The current economic impact of practicing UMMC-trained physicians is more than $6.3 billion annually, and those physicians are estimated to support more than 60,000 jobs in the state.

Guest View Education is important topic at the Capitol BY NICK BAIN State Representative
The 2013 Legislature is now in session and we are facing several major issues which will affect us here in Alcorn County. The Medicaid expansion dilemma, the charter schools controversy and budget decisions are all receiving a lot of attention . Each of these important items deserves thorough examination and discussion. I will do my part to ensure respectful and productive conversations take place during the decision-making process. Our first House Education Committee meeting took place in a room crowded with spectators as we all listened to Gov. Phil Bryant’s plan to revamp our school systems. As I have stated before, I will not vote for any measure that may harm our already excellent school systems -- both here in Alcorn County and elsewhere in the state. Among the measures being proposed is the idea every school system should be mandated to accept charter schools as part of their programs. Our local school administrators, teachers and parents should be the ones to determine whether charter schools are needed here. We already have laws in place that provide this option. We shouldn’t be forced into a costly, disruptive process that may have negative effects on our children for years to come. As I did last session, I will be submitting a bill to allow a pre-kindergarten pilot program to be introduced in the Alcorn County Schools (H. B. 629, 2012 Reg. Sess.). This measure was the result of discussions with our local professional educators, who, like me, believe children who have strong educational experiences before kindergarten enjoy the greatest chance to succeed in school and beyond. It has been proven early childhood education results in a reduction in crime rates, school dropouts and academic failures. The economic return on taxpayer investment ranges from $6.97 to $12.03 for every dollar spent on early childhood education, according to a study by economist Robert Lynch. Gov. Bryant’s recommendation to provide $3 million to the early childhood education “Building Blocks” program is a step in the right direction. Mississippi is one of the only states in the nation which does not have the important underpinning of pre-kindergarten for our children’s futures. As I’ve said before, the school districts in Alcorn County rank among the best in the region. It seems to me establishing a pre-kindergarten program here as a model for others is a worthy goal. I will work to see a viable prekindergarten program becomes a reality here and across Mississippi. If you’re thinking public education holds a special place in my heart, you are right. My wife, the former Lesley Lewis, is a professional educator and we are the parents of two young children, with a third arriving in February. As your state representative for District 2, I will do everything I can to make sure our schools are safe and our children receive the best educational opportunities possible. There are no do-overs in education -- we need to get it right for our kids the first time. On another front, Alcorn County has now exceeded the statutory threshold to allow us to expand our justice system with another constable and justice court judge. I agree with our supervisors we don’t need the added expense of installing another set of these offices here. They believe -- and I agree -- our justice system is working just fine as it is. I will be introducing a bill to allow us to waive this requirement for Alcorn County. If it becomes necessary in the future to increase the number of constables and justice court judges, we can still do so. I welcome your suggestions, concerns and ideas on all issues that come before the Legislature. (Nick Bain of Corinth is state representive for House District 2 which includes Alcorn County. To reach him, email nbain@house. ms.gov or call him at 662-287-1620. He can also be messaged on FaceBook at Nicholas Ryan Bain.)
Prayer for today Christ our Morning Star, come and waken us from the greyness of our apathy, and renew in us your gift of hope. Amen.
A verse to share From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this ought not to be so. — James 3:10 (NRSV)
Worth quoting A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him. — David Brinkley
Farewell to devoted husband, dad, gentleman When my dad was badly weakened by the flu and my mom wanted to call an ambulance to take him to the emergency room, he wouldn’t go unless he could shave first and change into a nice shirt and a pair of slacks. My mom told him they don’t have a dress code at ER. He insisted. My dad, who didn’t survive his illness, was thoroughly old school. He would no more wear a pair of jeans than rainbow-striped clown pants. Born in 1929, he never lost his belief in the standards of a bygone era or his passion for its literature, culture and history. He taught English for decades at what was then Trinity College in Washington, D.C., with an emphasis on American literature of the 1920s and 1930s. He was a teacher’s teacher who devoted himself to transferring, as much as he could, his love for Hemingway and Faulkner to his students. He adored big-band music — Tommy Dorsey, Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller and the rest of them. He whistled and hummed their tunes constantly around the
house. Later in life, he even tried to teach himself to play the trumpet, although I Rich would put Lowery the emphasis on National the word Review “tried.” When we played recordings of the greats for him in the hospital, he hummed along through his oxygen mask. He was a committed World War II buff. Nothing would ever seem as momentous to him as the clash of great armies over the fate of civilization that was in the headlines every day of his youth. He might have missed his calling as a military historian. His bookshelves were a veritable research library on the armaments of World War II. He was a scale modeler, and his study is full of dozens of models of tanks, planes and ships from the war. He had nearly completed his latest, a Heinkel He 115-1 (a German seaplane), when he passed away.
He loved baseball and had New York Yankee pinstripes imprinted on his heart. Like any good Yankees fan, he believed that the universe is in proper order only when the Yanks are world champs. Since his norms were set in an era when it was a big deal when Joe DiMaggio once kicked the dirt near second base in frustration in the 1947 World Series, he had no use for the ostentation of contemporary sport. He was a private man and very self-contained. I never saw him cry and never heard him raise his voice. Swearing was out of the question. He didn’t hug, if he could possibly avoid it. But he may have had the tenderest heart of anyone I have ever known. He spoiled the cats horribly, fed the birds lavishly and always endeavored to find a way to usher insects out of the house without doing them any harm. He was a devoted husband and father. I’m always a sucker for sentimental father-son baseball scenes in movies. It brings back the times my dad would throw batting practice or hit fly
balls to me down at the local field on summer nights. On the walk back home — with the overused ball stained green from the grass — he would put his arm around me and tell me stories of the game. Whatever lessons I have learned in life in the importance of patience and diligence began when he assembled a model tank with me as a kid. He believed in excellence, in duty and in self-control. He was a constant reader, beginning with the newspapers every morning (I told you he was old school), and an inveterate self-educator. He always had something next on his list that he wanted to learn more about, and in the spirit of a tinkerer — he baked and had dabbled through the years in woodworking, gardening and bricklaying — always another project. He had a trial at the very end, but was dignified to his last breath. RIP. (Daily Corinthian columnist Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. He can be reached via e-mail: email@example.com.)
Plantation’s history more than a petticoat mirror DESTREHAN PLANTATION, La. — You could not ask for a more evocative scene than this — one day and 202 years after the largest slave revolt in this country began near here. A misty fog makes the sky moss-green, and the ground is puddled with yesterday’s rain. Live oaks the size of grain silos frame a levee that holds at bay the Mississippi River. A few miles from the New Orleans airport, this place is a world away from the city’s siren bray and hustle. The big house here was built and most probably designed in 1787 by a slave, Charles Paquet, who not only bought his freedom with the construction, but afterward was rewarded with a slave of his own. Human life might not have been cheap, but it was for purchase. Slaves along the Great River Road plantations — the so-called German Coast — presumably had heard about the successful slave coup in Haiti in 1804 and

carefully, over several years, planned one of their own. On Jan. 8, 1811, Rheta the time Johnson must have s e e m e d Columnist right. With the drumbeat of freedom in their heads, the slaves began their doomed march. Historians say eventually the army was anywhere from 150 to 500 strong, men and women, led by a rebel slave driver named Charles. Some believe he originally was from Haiti, where his inspiration gelled. The determined group first attacked a planter, Manuel Andry, and killed his son. The insurgents had heard that the Louisiana Militia had weapons stored at the Andry Plantation, thus the tactical choice. But that cache had been moved, so the marauding slaves armed themselves with whatever crude weap-
ons they could muster and marched on toward New Orleans and the seat of territorial government. Word spread. Houses and property were pillaged and burned. There was panic in the white community, with many planters fleeing to New Orleans. But the rebellion that began with bloody bluster quickly was squashed. Within 48 hours, betterarmed militia troops from both Baton Rouge and New Orleans had ended the feeble slave effort. Two whites were killed. About 100 blacks. One report has 66 killed in battle and 18 executed after summary trials, one held right here Jan. 13 — five days after the revolt began — at Destrehan. Nobody knows for sure how many slaves were killed, but many of their corpses were mutilated. Documents show the executed had “their heads harvested” and displayed on poles along the levee.

fellow slaves would serve to keep others in line. Or so went planter reasoning. An economy that depended on the enslaved to harvest its sugar cane crops would not show mercy. Destrehan documents said execution and the grotesque display of human heads was “necessary to suppress a revolt which could take on a ferocious character if the chiefs and principal accomplices are not promptly destroyed.” Today, a few primitive art paintings depict the bloody rebellion and are displayed in an outbuilding on the Destrehan property. The imagination has to do the rest. In the world of plantation tours — endless petticoat mirrors, shoo-fly fans and four-poster beds — this one may hold the most important history lesson of all.

State to measure spending effectiveness JACKSON — Mississippi officials are adopting a national system created by the Pew Center for the States to measure how much benefit a dollar of public spending creates. The system is first being set up to measure the effectiveness of criminal justice and corrections programs, but could be expanded to other areas in the future. House and Senate Appropriations Committee members heard a presentation on the plan Tuesday. Mississippi tried in the 1990s to measure the effectiveness of its spending, but those measures have been ignored in recent years. Gov. Phil Bryant has also called for making spending decisions based on results, but lawmakers moved little on the subject in
Senate committee OKs charter school bill JACKSON — Legislation to expand charter schools in Mississippi is once again moving forward, as the state Senate Education Committee approved Senate Bill 2189 on a split vote Tuesday. The action came after Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves met privately with committee members Monday evening. The bill was released Tuesday morning. “This is just kind of picking up where we left off in the 2012 session,” Senate Education Committee Chairman Gray Tollison, R-Oxford, told committee members Tuesday. The bill would give districts rated “A” or “B” a veto over whether charters can locate there, while “C” and lowerrated districts wouldn’t get a veto. Many House

members favor allowing C-rated districts to have vetoes as well. Students would be allowed to cross district lines to enroll in charter schools. Charter schools are public schools that agree to meet certain standards in exchange for freedom from regulations. Proponents say they can improve achievement in Mississippi. “I don’t know of anybody who has ever thought charter schools would be a panacea, but they do provide parents with options,” said Forrest Thigpen, president of the Mississippi Center for Public Policy, a conservative-leaning group that has pushed for charter schools. Opponents fear they will skim motivated students and money from traditional schools. “The public school system does well,” said Sen. David Jordan, D-Greenwood, a retired teacher and opponent of charter schools. “The only thing
wrong is you don’t have the resources you need.”
Walker removed at marine agency BILOXI — Bill Walker has been dismissed as the executive director of the Mississippi Department of Marine Resources. The decision same Tuesday in a unanimous vote from members of the Commission on Marine Resources. CMR Vice-Chairman Jimmy Taylor made the motion to terminate Walker “for cause.” There was no additional discussion before the vote. “In light of continuing information received by the commission, I believe the commission has received sufficient information to terminate with cause the employment” of Walker,” Taylor said just before making the motion to dismiss Walker. CMR Chairman Vernon Asper said the commis-
sion has been upset by the allegations made against Walker and the MDMR. “I can promise you, we are going to pay more attention to everything that goes on in the department. “It’s hard when you have someone you trust explicitly and they let you down,” Asper said without mentioning Walker by name. “In this case, we gave a person free reign. We are aggreived at the allegations which have been made.” Walker was suspended without pay on Dec. 28. He did not attend for Tuesday’s meeting. Walker, who was appointed head of the DMR in 2002 by Gov. Ronnie Musgrove, has come under fire in recent months — first from a preliminary report in a federal audit which questioned funds spent on land purchases made through a federal program funded by offshore money. The report
found the department paid far more in most cases than the estimated value of the properties.
Wicker to oppose Hagel nomination JACKSON — U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker, a Republican from Mississippi, says he will oppose the nomination of former Sen. Chuck Hagel to be defense secretary. Wicker is a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, which will hold confirmation hearings on Hagel’s nomination. Wicker says in a statement that Hagel has a flawed vision for America’s role in the world and Hagel’s comments have cast doubt on the role he would play as an advocate for a robust defense budget. Wicker says Hagel’s record of extreme views makes him an unwise pick for defense secretary.

owner resulted in serious injuries to a Johannesburg woman, 24. Chantal Beyer said the game park owner snapped pictures and suggested that she “stand just a little bit closer” seconds before the attack.
Photos show Beyer and her husband only feet away from two rhinos. The rhino attacked, and its horn penetrated Beyers’ chest from behind, resulting in a collapsed lung and broken ribs.
Sandy aid package moving toward votes WASHINGTON — The House moved toward action Tuesday on a $50.7 billion Superstorm Sandy aid package that Northeast lawmakers hoped could be approved despite attempts by fiscal conservatives to eliminate unrelated projects and to gain offsetting spending cuts to cover the costs of the bill. Amendments offered by opponents of full funding set up a faceoff on the emergency spending package, with Northeast lawmakers in both parties eager to provide recovery aid for one of the worst storms ever to strike the region. “I urge my colleagues to show fundamental humanity and pass the bill today,” said Rep. Louise Slaughter, D-N.Y., noting it has been more than seven weeks since the storm struck. Rep. Tom McClintock, R-Calif., complained that billions of dollars would go for projects that are not urgently needed. “It’s supposed to be for emergency repairs,” said McClintock. The base $17 billion bill by the House Appropriations Committee is aimed at immediate Sandy recovery needs, including $5.4 billion for New York and New Jersey transit systems and $5.4 billion for the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s disaster relief aid fund. Northeast lawmakers will have a chance to add to that bill with an amendment by Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen, R-N.J., for an additional $33.7 billion, including $10.9 billion for public transportation projects. The Club for Growth, a conservative group, is urging lawmakers to oppose both Sandy aid measures. Sandy aid supporters, nonetheless, voiced confidence Monday they would prevail. The Senate passed a $60.4 billion Sandy aid package in December with bipartisan support.
US condemns Morsi comments WASHINGTON — The White House on Tuesday strongly condemned remarks that Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi made almost three years ago about Jews. Morsi was a Muslim Brotherhood leader in 2010 when, according to a video obtained by The New York Times, he asked Egyptians to “nurse our children and our grandchildren on hatred.” Months later, in a television interview, Morsi referred to Zionists as bloodsuckers who attack Palestinians, describing

First Baptist Church 501 Main Street, Corinth, MS
Zionists as “the descendants of apes and pigs.” “The language that we have seen is deeply offensive,” said White House spokesman Jay Carney. “We completely reject these statements, as we do any language that espouses religious hatred.” The Obama administration called for Morsi to make clear he respects members of all faiths, saying the comments heard in the video are at odds with Egypt’s democratic aspirations and the best interest of the region. “This kind of discourse has been acceptable in the region for far too long, and is counter to the goal of peace,” Carney said. Morsi’s remarks and the Obama administration’s rebuke marked a new point of tension in the complex relationship between the U.S. and Egypt’s fledgling democracy.
Obama weighing action on guns WASHINGTON — Facing powerful opposition to sweeping gun regulations, President Barack Obama is weighing 19 steps he could take through executive action alone, congressional officials said. But the scope of such measures is limited. The steps could include ordering stricter action against people who lie on gun sale background checks, seeking to ensure more complete records in the federal background check database, striking limits on federal research into gun use, ordering tougher penalties against gun trafficking, and giving schools flexibility to use grant money to improve safety. Obama will unveil his proposals Wednesday, barely over a month since the massacre of 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., thrust the gun issue into the national spotlight after years of inaction by Obama and lawmakers. The White House said Obama and Vice President Joe Biden will be joined at Wednesday’s announcement by children who wrote the president letters after the Newtown shooting. Supportive lawmakers and advocacy groups are also expected to attend. Obama is vowing not to back off his support for sweeping gun legislation that would require congressional backing — including banning assault weapons, limiting the capacity of ammunition magazines and instituting universal background checks — despite opposition from the influential gun lobby.
“Will all of them get through this Congress? I don’t know,” Obama said at a news conference Monday. “My starting point is not to worry about the politics,” he said. “My starting point is to focus on what makes sense, what works.”
Obama gets second chance at speech WASHINGTON — Sixteen presidents before Barack Obama got a second chance at giving an inaugural address for the ages. Most didn’t make much of it. George Washington’s remarks the second time around were admirably succinct — only 135 words — but hardly qualify as an address. Thomas Jefferson, who laid out a masterful brief on democracy at his first oath-taking, spent much of his second complaining that the press was telling lies about him. Ulysses S. Grant also began his second term by grousing that he’d been slandered, although it’s unlikely those who had heard his first inaugural were expecting much better. Abraham Lincoln is the grand exception. Just matching his first offering, with its lyric appeal to the “better angels of our nature,” would have been a feat. On his second try, Lincoln brought forth the mostacclaimed inaugural address ever, one of the great American speeches. Four years of civil war at last coming to a close, he summoned his countrymen to bind up the nation’s wounds, “with malice toward none, with charity for all.” Such poetic lightning is unlikely to strike again. Indeed, expectations for inaugural eloquence are low these days, giving Obama some breathing room as he prepares for Monday. “Most inaugural addresses are just pedestrian,” said Martin J. Medhurst, a professor of politics and rhetoric at Baylor University. Their function is ceremonial; they lack emotion and urgency. After reading all 56 inaugural addresses to date, presidential historian Charles O. Jones found: “A lot of them, frankly, are highly forgettable.” And second inaugurals? Even worse. Lincoln’s brilliance aside, the phrasings that gleam brightest in American memory came from newly minted presidents: Franklin Roosevelt’s “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself,” and John F. Kennedy’s “ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.”

Nationally known speaker, David Ring, will be speaking Sunday, January 27th, at First Baptist Church. The service will focus on how to emerge victorious rather than victimized in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds. David Ring knows a thing or two about being victorious in the face of insurmountable odds. Born in 1953, David was deprived of oxygen for 18 minutes at birth leaving him with cerebral palsy. Orphaned at the age of 14 after both parents died of cancer, he was cast from family to family with nowhere to call home. He endured constant physical pain, humiliating public ridicule and constant discouragement. Yet he chose to be victorious rather than a victim. After surrendering his heart and life to Jesus Christ, he learned self-respect and acceptance of his physical challenges. To most, physical challenges of this magnitude would prove to be a tombstone. For David Ring, this coming of age was and remains a milestone. Although difficult at first to understand, Ring quickly captures his audiences with his quick wit and warm personality. He always focuses on an individual ‘s need to conquer the personal challenges and adversities of life. As one who has not been stifled by his physical limitations, he clearly states his challenge to everyone. “I have Cerebral Palsy ... what’ s your problem?” asks Ring. Ring has authored one book, and speaks to more than 100,000 people annually. Entrance to the event is free. Arrive early as seats will fill up quickly.

Fighting the flu Hospitals are swamped with flu patients. Although the flu normally doesnâ€™t spread across the country until late January or February, it is already widespread in more than 40 states. Even so, financial analysts expect health care stocks to remain largely immune from big share price swings as the need for medical help rises. â€œThe current cold, cough and flu season looks to be the most severe in at least the last decade and continues to intensify,â€? Credit Suisse analyst Edward Kelly said in a research note. Flu season can help drugstore chains like CVS Caremark, Rite Aid and Walgreen because it brings more patients to stores to fill prescriptions or pick up disinfectants or over-the-counter remedies. But the gains can be short-lived. Kelly said an analysis of the three most severe flu seasons in the last decade shows that drugstore stocks perform well as flu activity picks up, but they then give back much of the gain in the following months.

Bankruptcy plan close? American Airlines has been operating under bankruptcy protection since November 2011. But parent company AMR and the committee representing the airline operatorâ€™s unsecured creditors have recently asked the court for a 20-day extension to complete a reorganization plan. That could indicate that AMR is nearing its exit from Chapter 11. Investors will be listening today for an update on the bankruptcy process when AMR reports fourth-quarter results.

Local slate wiped out by weather BY H. LEE SMITH II email@example.com
Mother Nature reared her ugly head again on Tuesday. Following early dismissal of most area schools on Monday and a handful of closings on Tuesday, inclement weather put a halt to all action on the local front. Four basketball games — all division contests — involving Alcorn County teams, plus Corinth’s soccer match at New Albany were postponed.
■ On the hardwood, Corinth was set to complete its homeand-home series with Pontotoc. The Warriors and Lady Warriors haven’t played at home since splitting with Division 1-4A foe Shannon on Dec. 20. Tuesday’s 1-4A twinbill has been rescheduled for Thursday. The Warriors (16-4) have won 41 of their last 44 home matches, including 13 straight. ■ Biggersville’s 1-1A double-
header at Jumpertown was also postponed. According to Lion Head Coach Cliff Little, no makeup date has been set yet. ■ Kossuth and Alcorn Central were set to hit the road for Division 1-3A contests. Kossuth was supposed to play at Ripley, with Central traveling to Belmont. The Aggie-Tiger twinbill, the second meeting of the year between the rivals, has also be reset for Thursday.
Central’s game at Belmont has been tentatively reset for Friday, Feb. 8, according to Bear Head Coach Brandon Quinn. AC already had a date at Hardin County (Tenn.) on Thursday and Saturday was booked with a twinbill against Middleton (Tenn.) ■ Corinth’s soccer matches with New Albany are also set to be made up on Thursday. Girls’ action will begin at 5, with the boys’ game to follow.

Young Bulldogs win first 2 SEC match ups Associated Press
Mississippi State’s nonconference performance was such a disaster that it was easy to wonder if first-year coach Rick Ray could lead his team to even one Southeastern Conference victory this season. One week into SEC play, the Bulldogs have already won two. It’s been a stunning turnaround for Mississippi State (7-7, 2-0 SEC), which scuffled through December but should now have a little momentum and confidence when it hosts Alabama (9-6, 1-1) on Wednesday at Humphrey Coliseum. The Bulldogs went 5-7 during non-conference play, with
Proposals expected to be voted on during this week’s annual NCAA convention in Grapevine, Texas. If approved, the changes would: ■ Allow athletes to accept up to $300 per year beyond normal expenses to attend non-scholastic events; ■ Receive an undefined amount of money to help offset expenses associated with practices and competition with national teams, including tryouts; ■ Establish a uniform definition of necessary expenses for college athletes and recruits. The calculation would be based on a calendar year, not an event-by-event basis; ■ Allow schools to provide normal Please see NCAA | 9A
point — suffocating halfcourt defense that masks the Bulldogs trouble putting the ball in the basket. Ray’s background as an assistant coach included stints in the Big Ten (Purdue) and Missouri Valley (Indiana State), two conferences known for a blue-collar, bone-jarring approach on the defensive end. He’s brought that mindset to Starkville, and his players have embraced it. “If you’re not willing to play defense and be tough, you’re probably not gonna play,” Ray said. “Our guys have a mindset right now that defense is the most important thing. We still fight it a little bit when can’t score or have an offensive drought, but just
trying to get those guys to understand that if we continue to play defense the way we’re playing, even if we continue to have scoring droughts, we still keep that lead.” Craig Sword, who won SEC freshman of the week honors on Monday after scoring a career-high 18 points against South Carolina, said Ray’s practices consist almost entirely of defensive drills. The Bulldogs have only seven scholarship players available because of injuries and attrition, making a true scrimmage nearly impossible. Instead, there’s focus on individual skills and defensive techniques. Please see BULLDOGS | 9A
Suddenly unwanted, Tebow’s future uncertain Associated Press

the low point being a particularly embarrassing 59-57 home loss to Alabama A&M on Dec. 30. But since that day, they’ve won three straight, including a home victory over South Carolina and a road win over Georgia to start SEC play. “It was really a tribute to our kids’ toughness and persevering through a lot of different things,” Ray said. “I’m happy with the way our guys are playing. I know it was crazy when we lost to Alabama A&M, but I actually thought our guys were doing better during that time period and it’s starting to show in results with wins.” The cause for Mississippi State’s revival is easy to pin-
NEW YORK — From nearly unstoppable to nearly invisible. Tim Tebow was two wins from the Super Bowl a year ago. Now, he’s pretty much a player without a team — likely to be released by the New York Jets after one frustrating season and his hometown team in Jacksonville already pulling in the welcome mat.
Even Tebow doesn’t how this will unfold. A backup role on another NFL team? A position change? The Canadian Football League? “I don’t know what my future holds, but I know who holds my future,” the devout Christian said in a recent interview with Fox Business Network, his only public comments since his strange Jets season ended.
“And, in that,” he added, “there is a lot of peace and a lot of comfort.” Tebow barely played for the Jets last season. “An absolute mess,” is the way recently retired special teams coordinator Mike Westhoff described it. Tebow has two years left on his contract, but New York is expected to trade or release him in the next few weeks. So far, destination unknown.
“I can’t imagine a scenario in which he’ll be a Jacksonville Jaguar,” new general manager David Caldwell declared last week. “Even if he’s released.” While there’s an outside chance Tebow could remain a New Yorker, depending on the whims of the still -to-be-hired GM, it appears highly unlikely. So, that’s two NFL teams Please see TEBOW | 9A
NHL returns, but TV viewers may come back slower Associated Press
NEW YORK — Hockey fans will click their bitterness or forgiveness over the NHL lockout by whether they tune into the games on TV. Then again, if the shortened season ends with, say, a Rangers-Red Wings final, even the most aggrieved of them might have a hard time
staying away. Television viewership bounced back — eventually — after the last lockout, one that wiped out an entire season. So there’s certainly precedent that the sport’s ratings can weather the lost games and perceived greed of a work stoppage. “Hope the passion for hock-
ey bubbles back to the surface very quickly,” NBC Sports executive producer Sam Flood said Tuesday. “The hockey fan is a passionate group, and we’re cautiously optimistic they’ll come back. It won’t be instant. You’ve got to regain the trust, regain the passion.” History also shows playoff matchups can swing momen-
tum in either direction. When the first two Stanley Cup finals after the lockout were Carolina-Edmonton and Anaheim-Ottawa, viewership cratered. Then the league hit a favorable stretch of large-market, big-name teams, with sePlease see NHL | 9A

NBA standings, schedule CONTINUED FROM 8A
“We don’t even worry about offense because everybody on our team (knows how to play) offense,” Sword said. “That’s all coach preaches about is defense. If we play defense we’ll win.” After two SEC games, that’s hard to argue. But the Bulldogs have also started to show signs of improvement on offense. Junior Jalen Steele — one of the few experienced players on the roster — returned from a wrist injury in late December to give the Bulldogs some outside shooting help. Mississippi State is still shooting an SECworst 27.8 percent from 3-point range, but Steele hit 4 of 8 from long range in the Georgia win. Sword’s 18-point performance against South Carolina was followed by 16 points against Georgia. The 6-foot-3 guard is one of several freshmen — including fellow guards Trivante Bloodman and Fred Thomas — who have had to learn the college game quickly. And the current winning streak has done wonders for self-esteem.
TEBOW CONTINUED FROM 8A
down — the only ones, at that, who showed any interest last offseason when Denver shopped him — and the 25-year-old Tebow’s options appear to be dwindling. “Tim Tebow is an extremely popular individual — or, he was,” said former Cowboys executive Gil Brandt, now an analyst for NFL.com. “I think his popularity has waned significantly the last three or four months.” The buzz these days belongs to young quarterbacks like Washington’s Robert Griffin III, Seattle’s Russell Wilson, Indianapolis’ Andrew Luck and San Francisco’s Colin Kaepernick. It seems so long ago now that Tebowing — his signature dropping to a knee for a prayerful pose — was all the rage. But even Tebow never Tebowed during the regular season for the Jets. Not once. Quite a fall for a Heisman Trophy winner and twotime national champion with the University of Florida, and whose No. 15 Broncos jersey ranked second in national sales to Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers in 2011.

When this year’s lockout-shortened slate opens Saturday, NBC will show the Los Angeles Kings raising their championship banner, then regional coverage of Blackhawks-Kings or Penguins-Flyers. The network plans to show the most hockey since it started televising the league after the last lockout, with 14 regular-season windows for games. Including cable part-
ner NBC Sports Network, the NBC Sports Group will air 70 regular-season games. The payoff to the company’s commitment to the sport will hinge on whether fans flock back — and if so, how quickly. Appealing playoff matchups would help in that regard. “We know going into this that an all-Canadian Stanley Cup final would be different than a Boston
Bruins-Chicago Blackhawks Stanley Cup final,” Flood said. “That’s just the basics of market size.” The Bruins’ Game 7 victory in 2011 earned the highest rating for an NHL game in 37 years — and that was, in fact, against a Canadian team in the Vancouver Canucks. That followed strong numbers for finals involving the Red Wings, Penguins, Flyers and Blackhawks.

ries that lasted at least six games, and ratings spiked. While still well below viewership for the NBA and Major League Baseball, hockey’s TV audiences in recent years were quite healthy, in many cases matching or exceeding pre-lockout levels in an era of everincreasing entertainment options. Now, for
the second time in less than a decade, the NHL must make that climb back again. According to Nielsen, non-cable regular-season games averaged 1.7 million viewers during the 2003-04 season, the last before the previous lockout. Once hockey returned, the average was 1.4 million in 2005-06. By last season, that number had rebounded to 1.6 million.

Gordon, Bowyer mum on party After their high-profile run-in at Phoenix International Raceway last fall, Jeff Gordon and Clint Bowyer just can’t seem to get away from each other. A week after the Phoenix incident, one that saw Gordon fined and placed on NASCAR probation for intentionally wrecking Bowyer, the two raced for the win – without issues – at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Then they ended up at the same New Year’s party on a yacht owned Sean “P. Diddy” Combs, the wealthy rapper and music executive. During their media sessions at Daytona testing, both were asked about the party but neither offered much insight into what transpired or whether there are issues still to be resolved. “The question is how [Bowyer] got on the yacht,” Gordon said with a smile. “That needs to be the real question … “We were just hanging out having a good time and on walks Bowyer and [Kevin] Harvick and a couple other folks … It was a great New Year’s. I enjoyed myself very much.” Said Bowyer: “I’m pretty sure [Gordon] was on there. It was pretty late. Put it that way.” Pressed on the issue, Bowyer indicated he was growing tired of the subject. “Who cares? Really, who cares?” he said.
Daytona tests reveal issues with Gen 6 cars
ith three days of restrictor-platetrack testing at Daytona International Speedway behind them, NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Series teams and drivers now head to Charlotte Motor Speedway this week for another round of testing of the Generation 6 race cars that will make their competitive debuts in next month’s Daytona 500. The Daytona test seemed to show that the superspeedway versions of the cars don’t work as well in the two-car pushing tandems that dominated racing at Daytona and Talladega Superspeedway in recent years. The bodies aren’t well suited for pushing, as evidenced by a multi-car crash on Friday at Daytona that damaged 12 cars and sent several teams headed home early as they had no backup cars prepared. That incident also brought to light just how much work remains to be done to have fleets of race cars ready for the early months of the 2013 season. With the radical changes to the cars since last year, teams are just now getting some of the key NASCAR-issued parts like hoods and trunk lids to use on those cars. With NASCAR’s encouragement, teams tried drafting at Daytona on Friday, and it wasn’t long before a big lesson was learned. Dale Earnhardt Jr. in his Chevy and Marcos Ambrose in his Ford were near the front of the pack when Earnhardt tried to give Ambrose a shove to see if the tactic of the recent past would work with the 2013 Generation 6 cars, so named because it’s the sixth different car that has run in NASCAR, dating back to the strictly stock vehicles that were used when the sport was founded back in 1948. “I was just going to give [Ambrose] a push down the back straightaway and see if he could get the lead,” Earnhardt explained. “I was trying to eventually get the lead myself. We got off the back straightaway and were just kind of pushing him along there and our cars sort of just didn’t match up very well. I got him hooked into the fence.” Earnhardt said that earlier he’d pushed Martin Truex Jr.’s Toyota and had good results. The Fords, he said, are different, which is not surprising given that one of the key aspects of the Generation 6 cars is that each manufacturer’s car is unique and designed to more closely resemble the passenger car versions of the vehicles. “The roll bar of the front of my car is just at the right place where [Ambrose’s] car sits right up on top of that,” Earnhardt said. “I sort of had him going down the back straightaway like a forklift.” Earnhardt also said the Chevy front end isn’t the best for pushing. “Our bumpers on the Chevys have a little bit of a point,” he said. “It makes it a little bit of a challenge to get into guys and kind of help them. We definitely weren’t doing that in the corner at all because it was pretty hairy trying to do it on the straightaways.” Earnhardt’s Hendrick Motorsports teammate Jeff Gordon said push drafting is a much riskier proposition, especially now that the superspeedway cars have less downforce, which means they’re harder to control in some circumstances. “The cars drive pretty well,” Gordon said. “You can’t push, which I think is a good

(NASCAR photos) thing. “The bad thing is, you can still get to the guy’s bumper, but the cars just don’t line up very well. You really just shouldn’t even be doing it. Unfortunately, that is kind of that last little bit of momentum that you need to sometimes make the pass or make your lane move. “So, it’s something that is going to have to be dealt with very carefully. You are going to have to be cautious when you do it and do it with the right guys, but most of the time you’re going to need to stay away from it.” Carl Edwards, looking to put a miserable 2012 season behind him, said he’s anxious to start racing with the new package, especially the reduction in downforce. “The cars are stuck less, and they are looser,” he said. “That is good for racing. It is good for the fans. It will make it more exciting and make pit strategy come into play. “If you put [fresh] tires on you will be able to go faster. I think all of that is good. This is going to be a heck of a race. I like that the cars were sliding around and hard to drive. It will make it a fun race.” For many at the Daytona test, the most immediate concern was the lack of inventory of body parts like hoods and trunk lids in race shops with the start of the season just a little over a month away. The issue is one being faced by teams large and small. Donnie Wingo, crew chief of the Wood Brothers’ No. 21 Ford driven by Trevor Bayne, said his team, which only plans to race a partial schedule, worked up to the last
minute to get its Daytona test car finished. And he said there was still some work to be done on the downforce car it plans to test at Charlotte this week. Jimmie Johnson said the situation is basically the same over at the giant Hendrick Motorsports complex. “Generally speaking, we just don’t have any cars,” he said. “This is our only speedway car for the 48 car. We want to have that as a backup when we come back. We still need to go home and build our 500 car. We just don’t have the inventory. “I mean we have four deck lids for our cars that are legal and they are on the four Hendrick cars that are here now. We’re playing a big game of catch-up right now.” NASCAR vice president Robin Pemberton addressed the parts shortage during a press conference at Daytona. “It’s just a fact that there’s a lack of inventory,” he said, adding that he’s confident the parts soon will be flowing through the supply pipeline. “The only thing that is short is hoods from the manufacturers and deck lids that come from our supplier. “We’re on a pretty organized schedule for delivery dates on those. There are over 100 deck lids out there in service right now. “We’ll be on a shipping schedule that starts next Friday, 50 every Friday, so we should be pretty well handled by the time we head off to Vegas [for the third points-paying race of the season on March 10].” Pemberton said that if necessary, teams could swap those parts from one car to the next among their fleets.
Two-time Daytona 500 winner Michael Waltrip plans to come out of semi-retirement and try to qualify the No. 30 Swan Racing Toyota for the Daytona 500. “We’re looking forward to Daytona,” Waltrip said. “It’s my favorite time of the year every year, to come down here and get to participate in the greatest race in the world, in my opinion. To have won it before just makes coming back that much more special. This year is going to be particularly cool for me because … it’s going to be basically a reunion of when we won a few of these things.” In joining the relatively new Swan team, Waltrip will be reunited with crew chief Tony Eury Jr. and competition director Steve Hmiel, both of whom worked with him when he drove for Dale Earnhardt Inc. “It’s just an amazing team that they’ve started, and I’m hoping that my driving the car can help us get sponsors and can help them jumpstart what is going to be a very exciting year for the Swan Racing team,” Waltrip said. He added that he felt it was a bad idea for his own team to prepare a fourth car for him given the work it’s taking to get the team’s three regular cars prepared. He said he’s fairly confident he can make the starting field in the car normally driven by David Stremme. “[Stremme] had a lot to do with the direction and the build of the car that he came here and made the race with a year ago, and his hands are all over the cars that I will be driving this year,” Waltrip said. “Plus, Tony [Eury] Jr.’s confidence. “We rode down [to Daytona] together and talked about some of the fun times we’ve had in the past, but mainly focused on what we’re going to have in 2013 when we get back here in a couple of weeks.”

Son remembers Luther Carter, late short track driver NUMERICALLY Back in the early 1970s, one of Georgia’s tough-as-nails short track drivers was leading a race on a north Georgia bullring when a raw rookie wrecked him out of a sure win. The kid felt so bad about the crash, which caused lingering hard feelings between the two drivers’ families, that he abandoned for a time his plans to become a race driver. It wasn’t until a year later that the boy took the wheel again. The second time around, things went much smoother. The veteran driver continued to race the short tracks for decades, and actually became a fan of the youngster who once robbed him of a victory. That young driver’s name: Bill Elliott. The veteran was Luther Carter, who died Jan. 4 at 75 of cancer. A few years back, Elliott sought out Carter and told him how sorry he was about that wreck those many years ago. “I wanted to quit that night,” Elliott said. “I really felt bad about that.” Carter was deeply moved by the gesture. “It meant a lot to me for a man of his stature to do something like that,” Carter said at that time. Mark Carter, Luther’s son, said his father, a bulldozer operator and grading company owner by trade who raced cars numbered 3 throughout his career, had a lot in common with the late Dale Earnhardt when it came to his driving style. “He wouldn’t put up with much, and he wasn’t afraid to stand up for what he thought was

20 years later, Beers says kidnapping saved her BY FRANK ELTMAN Associated Press
OLD WESTBURY, N.Y. — Being chained as a 10-year-old for more than two weeks in a coffin-size box in a suburban New York dungeon was, Katie Beers says 20 years later, “the best thing that happened to me” because it allowed her to escape a life of abuse. On the 20th anniversary of her ordeal, Beers has co-written a book with a television reporter who covered her kidnapping. “Buried Memories: Katie Beers’ Story” (Title Town Publishing) has a happy ending. Beers is now a 30-yearold married mother of two who earned a degree in business management and works in insurance sales near her home in rural Pennsylvania. Her kidnapping attracted nationwide attention in early 1993, when revelations surfaced while she was still missing that she had suffered years of neglect from her mother and had been repeatedly sexually assaulted by her godmother’s husband since she was a toddler. Beers was described in Dickensian terms back then — a louse-infested, filthy waif who had no friends and often was forced to lug the family’s laundry down the block or fetch cigarettes and junk food for her elders. After kidnapper John Esposito, a family acquaintance, admitted to detectives on Jan. 13, 1993, that he had kidnapped Beers and showed them the dungeon where she was hidden for 17 days under his Bay Shore, N.Y., home, the little girl was placed in foster care and raised in a comfortable East Hampton home with four siblings. Her foster parents not only imposed newfound discipline into her life, making her go to school regularly and do small chores around the house, but they also shielded Beers from intense media interest. And reporters largely complied with a parent-like plea from a prosecutor to leave her alone. “We as a society must protect this child, or our professed love for own children is just a fraud, and our so-called compassion for each other is just a mockery,” said
James Catterson, at the time the Suffolk County district attorney. So Beers had barely been seen or heard from since until this week in a media blitz to promote the book. She appeared Monday on the “Dr. Phil” show and is the focus of a People magazine feature this week. The abduction and subsequent rescue saved her life, Beers said in an interview with The Associated Press. “The best thing that happened to me,” she said. “I would have never gotten out of the abuse situation I was in.” She went on to play volleyball at East Hampton High, participated in drama productions and went to college in Pennsylvania, where she earned a degree and met the man who would become her husband and the father of their two children. “There’s no point really in me right now being sad or wondering what if,” she told the AP. “I try not to be sad about what happened, because ultimately it made me who I am today, and I’m very satisfied and happy with my life,” she said. Beers agreed about four years ago to co-write the book with WCBS-TV reporter Carolyn Gusoff, although she had thought about writing a book for many years. “I want to be able to help people who might not know where to turn,” she explained. “To see that there is a road to recovery.” She has declined to disclose her exact hometown, married surname or college alma mater, citing privacy concerns for her family. In the book, Beers writes that she had been molested and raped by Sal Inghilleri — her godmother’s husband — from the time she was a toddler. Inghilleri, who served 12 years in prison for molesting Beers, died in jail in 2009 following his arrest on a parole violation. Beers also writes that Esposito raped her in the dungeon, explaining that she repressed her memory of the sexual assault for many years as a defense mechanism. Esposito, who pleaded guilty to kidnapping, was never charged with rape.
age to police. She feared if police thought she was dead, they might end their search for her. She “celebrated” her 10th birthday while a prisoner of Esposito’s and was heard on an audiotape found in the dungeon after her release singing “Happy Birthday” to herself, although she says today she has no recollection of that. Esposito, she writes, fed her primarily junk food and soda; to this day she is repulsed by chocolate after-dinner mints because they were a staple in captivity. She did have access to a small television, but says she can no longer listen to Whitney Houston’s version of “I Will Always Love You” because it played incessantly on MTV and VH1 while she in the dungeon. She didn’t realize it un-
He is serving 15 years to life and has been denied parole several times; his next parole hearing is later this year. At a 2007 parole hearing, Esposito described himself as asexual and said while he kissed the child, he never engaged in sexual relations. He told Gusoff in a letter published in the book that he believes he deserves to be released. “I think Katie knows I will always wish her well,” Esposito writes. “I’m sorry for what I’ve done. I’m sorry I even thought it up. It was a mistake.” During her time in the dungeon, Beers writes, she rarely slept, fearing abuse from Esposito. She said she was afraid Esposito might molest her while she slept, but also was concerned that he would photograph her sleeping and send the im-

But if I go back to my life in rural Pennsylvania and go back to my insurance sales job I would love that, too. “I’m very happy with where I’m at.”

Gusoff notes that as abhorrent as Beers’ sexual abuse and neglect was at the hands of her elders before the kidnapping, it may have steeled her into a survival mode. Dominick Varrone, the Suffolk County detective who led the investigation, agreed, telling Gusoff in the book that “because of her upbringing, the sexual experiences, the abuse, and street smarts and toughness, she was much more ad-

NY seals first state gun laws since massacre BY MICHAEL GORMLEY Associated Press
ALBANY, N.Y. — New York lawmakers agreed to pass the toughest gun control law in the nation and the first since the Newtown, Conn., school shooting, calling for a stricter assault weapons ban and provisions to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill who make threats. “This is a scourge on society,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Monday night, six days after making gun control a centerpiece of his agenda in his State of the State address. The bipartisan effort was fueled by the Newtown tragedy that took the lives of 20 first graders and six educators. “At what point do you say, ‘No more innocent loss of life’?” The measure also calls for restrictions on ammunition and the sale
of guns. It is expected to pass Tuesday. “This is not about taking anyone’s rights away,” said Sen. Jeffrey Klein, a Bronx Democrat. “It’s about a safe society ... today we are setting the mark for the rest of the county to do what’s right.” Under current state law, assault weapons are defined by having two “military rifle” features, such as folding stock, muzzle flash suppressor or bayonet mount. The proposal would reduce that to one feature, including the popular pistol grip. The language specifically targeted the military-style rifle used in the Newtown shootings. Current owners of those guns will have to register them. Private sales of assault weapons to someone other than an immediate family would be subject
to a background check through a dealer. New Yorkers also would be barred from buying assault weapons over the Internet, and failing to safely store a weapon could lead to a misdemeanor charge. Ammunition magazines would be restricted to seven bullets, from the current 10, and current owners of higher-capacity magazines would have a year to sell them out of state. An owner caught at home with eight or more bullets in a magazine could face a misdemeanor charge. Stores that sell ammunition will have to register with the state, run background checks on buyers of bullets and keep an electronic database of bullet sales. In another provision, a therapist who believes a mental health patient
made a credible threat to use a gun illegally would be required to report it to a mental health director who would have to notify the state. A patient’s gun could be taken from him or her. The legislation also increases sentences for gun crimes including the shooting of a first responder that Cuomo called the “Webster provision.” Last month in the western New York town of Webster, two firefighters were killed after responding to a fire set by the shooter, who eventually killed himself. The measure passed the Senate 43-18 on the strength of support from Democrats, many of whom previously sponsored bills that were once blocked by Republicans. The Democrat-led As-
sembly gaveled out before midnight and planned to take the issue up at 10 a.m. Tuesday. It is expected to pass easily. The governor confirmed the proposal, previously worked out in closed session, also would mandate a police registry of assault weapons, grandfathering in assault weapons already in private hands. It was agreed upon exactly a month since the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy. “It is well-balanced, it protects the Second Amendment,” said Senate Republican leader Dean Skelos of Long Island. Cuomo said he wanted quick action to avoid a run on assault weapons and ammunition. He estimates there are already about 1 million assault
weapons in New York state. Republican Sen. Greg Ball called that political opportunism in a rare criticism of the popular and powerful governor seen by his supporters as a possible candidate for president in 2016. “We haven’t saved any lives tonight, except one: the political life of a governor who wants to be president,” said Ball who represents part of the Hudson Valley. “We have taken an entire category of firearms that are currently legal that are in the homes of law-abiding, tax paying citizens. ... We are now turning those law-abiding citizens into criminals.” In the gun debate, one concern for New York is its major gun manufacturer upstate.
Survivors record song for charity NEW YORK — Children who survived last month’s shooting rampage at Connecticut’s Sandy Hook Elementary School have recorded a version of “Over the Rainbow” to raise money for charity. Twenty-one children from Newtown, Conn., performed the song Tuesday with singer-songwriter Ingrid Michaelson on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” Most of them are current and former students of the school, where 20 first-graders and six staff members were killed. They recorded “Over the Rainbow” on Monday at the Fairfield, Conn., home of Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth, two former members of the Talk-
ing Heads and Tom Tom Club rock bands. Copies went on sale Tuesday on Amazon and iTunes, with proceeds benefiting the United Way of Western Connecticut and the Newtown Youth Academy. Kayla Verga, 10, said she was singing for a friend, 6-year-old Jessica Rekos, who was killed in the massacre. “Singing the song makes me feel like she’s with me and she’s beside me, singing along with me,” Kayla told “GMA.” Another girl, 10-yearold Sandy Hook student Jane Shearin, added, “I really want to be kind to the people who have lost their loved ones and help them to recover from their sorrow.”
Gunman Adam Lanza went on a shooting spree with a semiautomatic rifle in the school on Dec. 14 after having killed his mother at their home in Newtown. He fatally shot himself as police arrived at the school. It’s still unclear what motivated the attack. The Sandy Hook children have returned to classes in a neighboring town at a building renamed for their old school. Newtown officials and residents have begun discussing what to do with the school where the shootings occurred. Some parents of children killed in the massacre spoke out on Monday, calling for a national dialogue to help prevent similar tragedies.

Lichens are commonly observed on trees and shrubs that are struggling, and they get most of the blame for the plants’ problems. Most of the time, the lichens were already present before any decline started. also the time when home gardeners start to notice other things growing in their gardens. The fact that they are green to gray in color adds a sense of dismay. The cause for concern 99 times out of a 100 is an organism called the lichen. Lichens are very interesting organisms found throughout the
world. They are an unlikely combination of fungi and algae that survive in a symbiotic relationship. Many gardeners incorrectly assume lichens are feeding on the trees and shrubs in some sort of parasitic arrangement. Actually, the lichen is only growing on the surface of the bark. The algae supply food via photosynthe-

sis, while the fungi gather water and other needed nutrients. Three main types of lichen are found on the bark of woody plants and on rocks and other hard surfaces. Some are spreading and have a very flattened appearance. These are the crustose forms of lichen and, as the name suggests, they may look a little crusty. Other lichens develop folds that resemble a crumpled sheet as they spread across a branch. These wavy folds are produced by folicose lichen. The third commonly found form of lichen is highly branched with multiple projections. These projections can have a very fine texture that resembles spongy little balls growing on a limb. These are the fruiticose forms of lichen. Lichens are commonly observed on trees and shrubs that are struggling, and they get most of the blame for the plants’ problems. Most of the time, the lichens were already present before any decline started. Trees that are stressed may lose a few branches, which allows more light into the canopy, and the lichens begin to grow better in the increased sunlight. As a tree continues to decline, lichens continue to grow, giving the illusion that they are causing the problem when they are just benefitting from the situation. At this point, you may be wondering what is the best way to control lichen growth. The answer is simply to keep the landscape plants in

A well-growing plant will have a canopy that discourages lichen growth. You can lightly prune damaged branches to encourage new branch growth, which in turn helps to establish a denser canopy. I personally think that lichen adds a touch of patina to our landscape plants, but I know that
other gardeners have a different opinion. Knowing that they are not harming the plant may give gardeners a new perspective on this unusual thing growing in the landscape.

Woman in love with gay man must look elsewhere Study club learning about DEAR ABBY: “Myles” and I have known each other for five years, but have grown really close over the past three. We tell each other everything, and I have fallen in love with him. A few months ago, Myles sent me a text saying he needed to tell me a “secret.” He went on to say the guy he had told me was his brother, “Jeff,” is really his lover. Needless to say, that bombshell floored me. We have discussed it in person, and I have never told him how I feel. I visit them a couple of times a month and always go home feeling hurt. I want Myles for myself, even though I know I can’t have him. I don’t want to lose him as my friend, but it hurts seeing him and Jeff together. How do I resolve this? – GIRL LEFT BEHIND IN CALIFORNIA DEAR LEFT BEHIND: Start by being as honest with Myles as he was with you. Tell him that over the course of your friendship you fell in love with him — and that
you wish you had known he was gay before you became so Abigail emotionVan Buren ally involved. Dear Abby If you want romance, you will have to look for it elsewhere. In order for you to find it, I cannot stress strongly enough that you will need to feel good about yourself. Stop torturing yourself by visiting the two lovebirds and take a break for a while. A long while. DEAR ABBY: I am a 36-year-old woman who has never been married or had children. For the past two years I’ve been seeing a man I’ll call Frank. I love him deeply, and I believe he feels the same about me. Frank is still married but legally separated from his wife. They have one child who lives with his mom. Frank lives with me, and Frank’s wife lives with another man
and has a second child by yet another guy. My problem is, Frank’s wife calls me whenever she has a fight with her boyfriend. She confides in me like I’m her best friend. I have never talked to Frank about divorcing her, but I’m at my wit’s end over this whole circle. Sometimes I feel like I’m wasting my time with him. Abby, I’m a longtime reader who needs to find a solution to this soap opera. Please help me. – GETTING DIZZY IN EAST BOSTON DEAR GETTING DIZZY: You need to talk to Frank about his degree of commitment to you. Two years is a long time to live with someone who’s married to someone else — let alone be trying to solve his wife’s love problems. Perhaps it’s time to distance yourself from both of them and figure out what you want to do for you. DEAR ABBY: My friend “Maggie” is getting a divorce. She has been living with my husband and me for four months.
She pays one-third of our utility bill but pays no rent. My husband feels that since Maggie is living with us, she should pay something – even if it’s only $100 a month. She’s a lifelong friend, and I don’t know what to do. Maggie is very upset over her messy divorce. Should I ask her for rent money? (I don’t want to fight over this with my husband.) – ONLY FRIEND IN KENTUCKY DEAR ONLY FRIEND: It depends on Maggie’s financial circumstances. If she has the money, it’s certainly OK to ask. If she doesn’t have the resources — or a job — she should consider finding one so she’s not completely financially dependent on others. (Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.)
Horoscopes Venus and Pluto align in early Capricorn inviting a more demonstrative kind of love. Maybe you can see the sparkle of affection in someone’s eyes, but you’ll believe it more when a person makes arrangements to spend time with you, tries to help you in practical ways and gives you something tangible to prove their feelings. ARIES (March 21-April 19). One of the reasons that you’re an interesting person is that you’re interested in what others are up to. Everything you learn makes you more exciting to be around. TAURUS (April 20May 20). You invent the weather around you. And when there’s a change in your personal weather, everyone in your vicinity
feels it. Because of this, you’ll make an effort to stay on the bright side. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your powers of memorization are particularly strong which will help you in efforts social, political and professional. Later you’ll make an impression with the information you gather. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your attention is a gift. Taking the time to appreciate another person’s mindset is a gift. Stick with the ones who can appreciate the value of your life energy. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your attachment to things will be challenged. What do you really need? You may find the answer to that question will change based on the time of day. The best-case scenario is: I
don’t need much. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You can’t do this thing alone. You could try — you’d get pretty far in the game, but you wouldn’t ultimately win it. You need a team. Stay aware and you’ll have the wherewithal to assemble a good one. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your words register in the ears of those who most need to hear them. It may be a process that’s hard to detect in the moment, but you can be sure that eventually the meaning will land. SCORPIO (Oct. 24Nov. 21). You are no stranger to the pangs of envy. Feeling them while you observe an online page of someone else’s apparently fabulous life is sign of the times. Just know that you have absolutely no reason to be jealous. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Formalities make everyone who is a part of the group and in-the-know feel quite comfortable while everyone on the outside of the group feels quite the opposite. Proceed with caution. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Communication is just as much about listening as it is about talking. While this comes as no surprise to you, there are a few people you know who consistently violate the

rules. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18). Unless you’re a superhero, power doesn’t come from your suit. But that doesn’t stop you from wanting to portray an image of success. It’s a lucky day for shopping -- you know yourself so well. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’re not looking for anyone’s approval, which is probably why you have no problem getting it. You’ll talk about your life in positive terms and you’ll attract good people. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 16). As you go where you are needed it may feel as though you’re reacting to life instead of creating your destiny — untrue! This is life’s way of giving you something wonderful that never would think to want on your own. You’ll go into March understanding a bigger picture. June and October bring new, lucrative work. Cancer and Libra adore you.

library’s art-related resources Special to the Daily Corinthian
Mrs. Robert Foster was hostess to the Twentieth Century Study Club on Nov. 13. Twelve members and one guest, William McMullen, were present and enjoyed refreshments during the social hour. Mrs. Gerald Cranford presided and turned the program over to Mrs. Rivers Ulmer, program leader for the day. Ulmer presented McMullen, Northeast Regional Library director. McMullen pointed out
the library contained a large resource in the art field. He showed many pictures painted by American artists including Winslow Homer, Divencorn, Georgia O’Keefe, John S. Coley and John Rogers Cox. McMullen discussed each painting and gave many interesting facts about them all. Cranford presided over the busness sessions during which the minutes were approved as read. After this the meeting was adjourned.

On Jan. 16, 2003, the space shuttle Columbia blasted off under extremely tight security for what turned out to be its last flight; on board was Israel’s first astronaut, Ilan Ramon (ee-LAHN’ rah-MOHN’).

â€˜Argo,â€™ â€˜Les Miserablesâ€™ win best-picture Globes BY DAVID GERMAIN AP Movie Writer
BEVERLY HILLS, CA. â€” â€œArgoâ€? is in big with the Golden Globes, but not so much with the Academy Awards. â€œLincolnâ€? is sitting pretty with the Oscars but was mostly left out in the cold at the Globes. Sundayâ€™s Globes left the Feb. 24 Academy Awards picture still muddled, with the Iran hostage thriller â€œArgoâ€? winning for best drama and director for Ben Affleck, a prize he already knows he canâ€™t win at the Oscars, where he
wasnâ€™t even nominated. The night featured former President Bill Clinton getting a standing ovation after introducing â€œLincolnâ€? and Jodie Foster coming out without really coming out as this yearâ€™s winner of the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award. Foster joked that celebrities are now expected to reveal theyâ€™re gay â€œwith a press conference, a fragrance and a prime-time reality show.â€? She declined: â€œMy reality show is so boring.â€? One thing not so bor-
ing this year were hosts â€” Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, who were given credit for being charming, irreverent and hilarious. Besides the three wins for â€œLes Miserablesâ€? and two for â€œArgo,â€? the show was a mixed bag, with awards spreads around a number of films. Steven Spielbergâ€™s â€œLincolnâ€? came in leading the Globes with seven nominations but won only one award, best actor for Daniel Day-Lewis. â€œLincolnâ€? also leads the Oscars with 12 nominations, with Spielberg, Day-Lewis and
SHOULD GET A FLU SHOT NOW â€˘ It takes at least two weeks to start to work â€˘ We may begin to see cases of the flu as early as this month â€˘ It's FREE if you have Medicare and only $25 for others â€˘ You can be done in 10 or 15 minutes and that could save you a week or more of sickness â€˘ It's easy ... you can get your vaccination at James Bennett Apothecary from 9:00am-5:00pm Monday through Friday
QUESTIONS? â€˘ Who should get a flu shot: all adults and children over six months old â€˘ Does it hurt: most people only feel a slight sting if anything â€˘ Are there side effects: only slight chance of a little fever or redness or swelling at injection site â€˘ Does it have H1N1 vaccine mixed in it: yes â€˘ Can you get the flu from taking the shot: no because the virus in the injection is not alive â€˘ What about my child: we only vaccinate adults so please see your doctor for children under 18
co-star Sally Field all in the running for possible third Oscars. â€œIf I had this on a timeshare basis with my wonderful gifted colleagues, I might just hope to keep it for one day of the year, and Iâ€™d be happy with that,â€? Day-Lewis said. â€œLes Miserablesâ€? was named best musical or comedy and won acting honors for Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway. â€œZero Dark Thirtyâ€? star Jessica Chastain won the Globe for dramatic actress as a CIA agent obsessively pursuing Bin Laden. Other acting prizes went to Jennifer Lawrence as best musical or comedy actress for the oddball romance â€œSilver Linings Playbookâ€? and Christoph Waltz as supporting actor for the slave-revenge tale â€œDjango Unchained.â€? â€œLes Miserables,â€? the musical based on Victor Hugoâ€™s classic novel, earned Jackman the Globe for musical or comedy actor as tragic hero Jean Valjean. Hathaway won supporting actress as a single mom forced into prostitution. â€œThank you for this lovely blunt object that I will forevermore use as a weapon against selfdoubt,â€? Hathaway said, cradling her trophy. Jackman was a bit hoarse from the flu, but his Globe win seemed to be the right antidote. â€œI was kicking myself for not getting the flu shot, but it appears that you donâ€™t need one. I feel great,â€? Jackman said. But when it comes to Hollywoodâ€™s highest honors, â€œLes Miserablesâ€? has the same obstacle as â€œArgo,â€? also failing to earn a best-director slot for filmmaker Tom Hooper at the Oscars. Last Thursdayâ€™s Oscar
nominations held other shockers, including the omission of fellow Globe directing nominee Kathryn Bigelow for â€œZero Dark Thirty.â€? Clinton upstaged Hollywoodâ€™s elite with a surprise appearance to introduce Spielbergâ€™s â€œLincoln,â€? which was up for best drama. The film chronicles Abraham Lincolnâ€™s final months as he tries to end the war and find common ground in a divided Congress to pass the 13th Amendment abolishing slavery. Lincolnâ€™s effort was â€œforged in a cauldron of both principle and compromise,â€? Clinton said. â€œThis brilliant film shows us how he did it and gives us hope that we can do it again.â€? Poehler gushed afterward, â€œWow, what an exciting special guest! That was Hillary Clintonâ€™s husband!â€? Lawrence won as best actress in a musical or comedy for her role as a troubled widow in a shaky new relationship. The Globe winners in musical or comedy categories often arenâ€™t factors at the Oscars, which tend to favor heavier dramatic roles. But â€œSilver Linings Playbookâ€? is a crowd-pleasing comic drama with deeper themes than the usual comedy. And Lawrence â€” a 2010 Oscar nominee for her breakout film â€œWinterâ€™s Boneâ€? who shot to superstardom with â€œThe Hunger Gamesâ€? â€” delivers a nice mix of humor and melancholy. â€œWhat does this say? I beat Meryl,â€? Lawrence joked as she looked at her award, referring to fellow nominee and multiple Globe winner Meryl Streep. Lawrence went on to thank her mother for believing in her and her fa-
ther for making her maintain a sense of humor. Waltz won supporting actor for his role as a genteel bounty hunter who takes on an ex-slave as apprentice in Quentin Tarantinoâ€™s for â€œDjango Unchained. The win was Waltzâ€™s second supporting-actor prize at the Globes, both of them coming in Tarantino films; he previously won for â€œInglourious Basterds.â€? â€œLet me gasp,â€? said Waltz, whose competition included â€œDjangoâ€? costar Leonardo DiCaprio. â€œQuentin, you know that my indebtedness to you and my gratitude knows no words.â€? Tarantino won the screenplay prize for â€œDjango Unchained.â€? He thanked his cast and also the group of friends to whom he reads work-inprogress for reaction. â€œYou guys donâ€™t know how important you are to my process. I donâ€™t want input. I donâ€™t want you to tell me if Iâ€™m doing anything wrong. Heavens forbid,â€? Tarantino said. â€œWhen I read it to you, I hear it through your ears, and it lets me know Iâ€™m on the right track.â€? The Scottish tale â€œBraveâ€? won for best animated film. It was the sixth win for Disneyâ€™s Pixar Animation unit in the seven years since the Globes added the category. Austrian director Michael Hanekeâ€™s old-age love story â€œAmour,â€? a surprise best-picture nominee for the Oscars, won the Globe for foreign-language film. The top prize winner at last Mayâ€™s Cannes Film Festival, â€œAmourâ€? is a grim yet moving portrait of an elderly woman tended by her husband as she is incapacitated by age.
