Center provides woman hope Facility gives young mother a second change on life BY STEVE BEAVERS sbeavers@dailycorinthian.com

An American bald eagle and her young eaglet have taken up residence near a pond in Corinth.

Bald eagles make Corinth their home BY STEVE BEAVERS sbeavers@dailycorinthian.com

Tourists often find Corinth a great place to visit. Even those who soar through the air. A pair of American bald eagles have been feeding at a pond in the Steeplechase subdivision. Lisa Weeden, who owns the subdivision along with her husband, Dr. Mike Weeden, said the eagles have been in the area since last year. “My son (Blake) said he saw an eagle around Christmas last year, but we didn't really think much about it,” said Lisa. “Then in November., my parents and sister-in-law both saw it.” An apparent mother and her young eaglet, discovered Sunday, have been coming and going, according to Lisa Weeden. “They don't seem to be scared,” said Weeden, who has photos of the mother. “We have seen eagles in areas like out West, but never this close to home.” Although no nest has been located, the birds have taken up residence and seem to be feeding well. “The fish they have been able to catch are huge,” said Weeden. Since the birds were discovered, the Weedens also noticed all the ducks in their pond have disappeared. The best time to catch a glimpse of the eagles is around noon and after school from 3-4 p.m. “Sometimes we won't see them all day, but lately they have been here,” said Mrs. Weeden. Weeden said she has received a ton of comments on Facebook and encourages anyone who would like to catch a glimpse of the eagles to do so. Please see EAGLES | 2A

(Editor's Note: Due to the sensitivity and nature of this story, the Daily Corinthian has chosen not to reveal the true identity of a woman staying at the Hope Dream Center. The woman will be referred to as Jane throughout the story.) Life isn't always kind. During those difficult times, people need some kind of hope that things will be alright. For a 34-year-old mother, the Hope Dream Center is giving her a second chance when no one else would. “Life happened and circumstances I couldn't help brought me here,” said Jane. “Corinth is very judgmental … I had no where else to turn because of my past.” The woman has been hit hard by life. She lost her job and home, forcing her to stay “here and there” to avoid the streets. The loss of income kept her from being able to afford the medicines she needs to combat lupus. “The center was the only place that said it would help,” said Jane. “Thanks to them, I

911 director Burns takes her last call BY JEBB JOHNSTON jjohnston@dailycorinthian.com

They may not have the glamour of double-oh-seven, but Teresa Burns’ name has become interchangeable with three other important digits: 911. “Through the years, I kind of lost my identity and became Teresa Burns 911,” said the retiring director. Friends, family and associates joined Burns at the communications center on Thursday for a reception celebrating her years with the county and the 911 office, where she served as director for 15 years. A 1982 Alcorn Central graduate, Burns found herself laid off from ITT and back in the job market at the age of 21. It was a big disappointment to her when she didn’t get a job at another local industry where many of her friends from ITT had found work. But factory work was not to be her path. A call came from the sheriff’s department, wanting to know if she could type, a requirement

lives from cancer each day is succeeding and there is new hope daily in the fight against cancer. In Alcorn County, the b e s t way to c o n tribute to that battle is to join in the annual Relay for Life, s a i d Chittom. A kick-off event was recently held to mark the start of Relay season with the annual event set for May 31 from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. at Corinth High School.

This year’s theme is “Toon Out Cancer” and teams are invited to pick their favorite cartoon characters to join them in the fight. Chittom said they had a great kic-koff w i t h many n e w teams joining the effort this y e a r a n d they’re hoping for one of the biggest years ever.

my future career path,” said Burns. About six weeks after beginning work for Sheriff Bill Gant, a job offer came from Wurlitzer. It was too

late — she was already hooked on dispatching. After 61⁄2 years with the sheriff’s office, she moved to the new 911 office at the courthouse and took the first call to 911 on Nov. 21, 1991. What would be-

come a cramped office was sparse at the time with a couple of 911 phones and one computer on a table and a map on the wall. In addition to taking emergency calls, the 911 office began doing all dis-

patch for the Corinth Fire Department. It was slow going in the beginning, however, and Burns remembers many long, lonely night shifts in the basement of the courthouse. “We didn’t have that

many calls coming in, and the ones we did have were mostly curious citizens wondering if this 911 system worked,” she said. In the early days, she estimates as much as 75 percent of calls coming in were non-emergency. A public relations campaign began to educate people about when to call 911. After becoming director in 1998, she had the 911 team begin work on getting directions to every address into the computer system. It took nine months to complete. She also teamed with the post office soon after becoming director to convert route and box addresses to road and house numbers. Because of a growth spurt in Alcorn County at the time, the office spent a year resurveying the entire county. After years of taking calls, the dispatchers have heard just about everything. But there are still occasional surprises. “It never ceases to amaze us that we get a new and unique call every week,” said Burns. The job can be dramatic. “I remember the first time one of my dispatchers helped someone deliver a baby,” she said. During Hurricane Ka-

trina, a desperate call from the disaster somehow found its way to Alcorn 911. “We got a call from a family in Moss Point that was on top of their roof,” said Burns. She helped with the census efforts in 2000 and 2010 and was elected president of the Association of Public Communications Officials in 2010. Now, she looks forward to slowing down a bit. “I plan to take some time off and just enjoy my family,” she said. “I hope to assist my husband and son with our Burns Rental Properties.” She is grateful for the opportunity she had to serve Alcorn County. “A lot of people don’t really think of a career as being a dispatcher or telecommunicator, but it has been one of the best decisions that I ever made,” said Burns. “Anybody that truly knows me knows that I have a big heart for helping people. I feel so blessed to have survived the politics of my job all these years and to be able to say that for 28 years I have done something that I absolutely love and I have never dreaded a day that I have to get up and go to work.”

EAGLES CONTINUED FROM 1A

“People who want to drive out, can during the day,” she said. The pond where the eagles have been feeding is located off of Gaines Road in the subdivision owned by the Weedens. Another pair of two other bald eagles have made their home at Shiloh National Military Park since

2007. Hiram and Julia began nesting in the park and have raised two eaglets each year with the exception of 2010. Last year, two eggs were laid, but neither survived. The pair have returned to the park this year, moved their nest and have been seen mating the past several weeks. The nest isn't far from where the two have been making their home.

Deaths Daphne Johnson

Funeral services for Daphne L. Burns Johnson, 71, of Corinth, are set for 1 p.m. Monday at Gravel Hill Baptist Church with burial at Gravel Hill Cemetery. Mrs. Johnson died Saturday, Jan. 26, 2013, in Booneville. Born Aug. 27, 1941, in Guys, Tenn., she was a quality control inspector for Corinthian Inc. She was a member of Kendrick Baptist Church and a former member of Gravel Hill Baptist Church. She was preceded in death by her parents, J.L. and Johnnie Callins Burns; a daughter, Tra-

cy Leigh Burcham; and a brother, Lester Burns. Survivors include her husband, Danny Oneal Johnson of Corinth; a daughter, Tina Louise Yancey of Marksville, La.; a son, John David Wiley of Alexandria, La.; a brother, Jimmy Dan Burns of Ramer, Tenn.; seven grandchildren; and one greatgranddaughter. Bro. George Kyle will officiate. Visitation is today from 5:30 to 9 p.m. at Shackelford Funeral Directors of Selmer and Monday from noon until service time at Gravel Hill Baptist Church.

and lodging with clean bathrooms. Counseling is also available to determine their needs as well as how to avoid repeating their circumstances. “It's so sad this happens,” said Center President Annie Saffore. “Jane never thought she would be in this situation.” Jane's intentions were to be involved in helping others at the 36,000 square-foot facility. “I had talked with Miss Annie about coming to work here when it opened,” said Jane. “My calling is to help, but then it happened to me … I couldn't get ahead without being knocked back down.” According to the woman, there are more women out there who need the same help. “They are afraid to come forward,” said Jane. “No one should be put through what I have gone through and or watch other women go through to keep a roof over your head and food in your stomach.” More community awareness is needed in the fight to help the homeless, according to Jane. “This is the only center for women from all walks of life,” she said. “Women need to know

there is help out there.” The Hope Dream Center faced many obstacles before it could open. Over $25,000 had to be raised to meet the city building code requiring a sprinkler system. Now volunteers are needed to renovate more rooms. “People can give back to the community by helping the center,” said Jane. “Without the help of others, this isn't going to work.” Her stay is enabling Jane to reconnect with the Lord. Once the facility is up and running, she plans to complete the six months remaining to earn her college degree. Jane is also looking for a job to get back on her feet and pay for needed medication. “I wouldn't be alive today without the Hope Dream Center,” said the young woman, while trying to hold back tears. “All of us deserve a second chance … you can turn your life around. Sometimes you just need a little help getting back up.” (Those interested in helping the Hope Dream Center can call the facility's new telephone number at 287-7411.

EXPRESS DVD NOW

BY BOBBY J. SMITH bjsmith@dailycorinthian.com

Lisa Lambert’s blend of country and folk styles of music is all about traditions. This week she will combine her love of traditional music with another kind of tradition — eating at Martha’s Menu in downtown Corinth. The release party for Lambert’s new album, “Come on Home: Songs and Stories from Tishomingo County,” begins at 5 p.m. Thursday at Martha’s Menu. The choice of venue was easy to make, said Scott Nunley, Lambert’s songwriting partner, manager and husband. “One of the things we’ve done over the years when we’re playing at the courthouse is go by Martha’s Menu to eat. We like the home cooking,” said Nunley. “Then we started playing when we were there. It’s become a tradition.” At the release party, Nunley and Nolan Wells will join Lambert for some acoustic performances of songs from the new album. Then,

after dinner, the musicians will relocate to East Corinth High School to join the Courthouse Pickers and other bluegrass enthusiasts at Pickin’ on the Square, Corinth’s weekly bluegrass hoedown. Lambert’s new album tells the stories she heard and lived growing up in Alcorn’s neighbor county to the east. “It’s stories of growing up in Iuka and Tishomingo County,” said Nunley. “Lisa had a lot of family

in Corinth and she grew up around here.” Each of the songs comes from a life experience, Nunley said, and while the album is “straight electric country” on the whole, it also includes the gospel-flavored title track. “Come on Home” has already been picked up by local gospel radio stations. The album features 11 original tracks recorded professionally in Nashville, Tenn., last October. “My Fisherman and Me”

Shiloh park offers Valentine’s Day program BY BOBBY J. SMITH bjsmith@dailycorinthian.com

In February Shiloh National Military Park will take kids on a trip through history to learn about the origins of Valentine’s Day — including a chance for kids to make their own old-style Valentine cards. “We are excited to present this fun-filled, yet educational, opportunity to area children,” said Superintendent John Bundy. “This unique hour-long program will introduce young children to how Valentine’s Day was celebrated 151 years ago in our nation.” This new program will give children insight into the history of Valentine’s Day, Valentine cards and how soldiers celebrated the holiday during the Civil War. In the early 1800s, most Valentine cards were handmade and had become the most popular way to express feelings of love, explained Park

Smedley pointed out. During the program, each child will construct a Civil War-era Valentine card to take home and give to someone special. The Valentine’s Day program was conceived as a follow-up to the greatly successful Shiloh Christmas program for kids, Smedley explained. Almost 40 area youths participated in the Christmas program. “We want to start offering more projects for area children,” she said. “Most of our projects are geared toward older youths and adults, and we wanted to do something for children in which they can learn about how they holiday developed and do something hands-on.” The Shiloh Valentine’s Day program for kids is free of charge. It begins at 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9, at the Visitor Center. Register children for the program by calling Smedley at 731-6895696.

reaches back to Lambert’s childhood, when her family befriended a Gulf Coast fisherman on their yearly vacations to the coast. “She lost him in Hurricane Camille,” said Nunley. “She begged and begged him to come up here, but he stayed down there.” The song “Freedom” is another from Lambert’s youth — the story about her first impressions of downtown Iuka on the Fourth of July. “It’s about a little girl, Lisa, going to the Fourth of July parade in downtown Iuka and seeing the soldiers and figuring out what it’s all about,” Nunley explained. The Corinth appearance kicks off a busy weekend for Lambert. On Friday she will play a “session in the round” at the famous Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, the regular haunt of hit-makers on the prowl for good songs and talented writers. The following Thursday she will play live on Channel 3 out of Memphis. (For more information, visit www.lisalambertmusic.com.)

Momentum picks up in state legislature BY CLAYTON STANLEY Columnist

Momentum in the Mississippi legislature picked up substantially during the third week. This past week marked the deadline for filing bills that members wish to have considered during the 2013 session. Ultimately, there will be several thousand bills filed, but only a few hundred will make it all the way through the process and become law. Like the previous week, the most talked about issue in Jackson was charter schools. The previous week the Senate passed their charter bill, SB2189, last week was the House’s turn. On Wednesday, Chairman John Moore brought forward House Bill 369 the “Mississippi Public Charter Schools Act of 2013.” Debate on the bill began around 2:30 p.m. Wednesday and after hours of questions, considering 18 proposed amendments and an out loud reading of the entire 251-page bill, a vote finally came early Thursday. Around 1 a.m. the bill passed with bi-partisan support, 64-55. Thursday’s vote was a major milestone for charter school supporters. It was the first time the House had been able to pass a bill on the issue after several failed attempts in 2012. While a bill has now been passed in the House and Senate, the two versions are quite different, and in order for anything to become law, the two sides must agree on compromise language. The issue that is likely to cause the most discussion in the compromise process is over which school districts get veto authority in deciding whether or not a charter school is allowed within its boundaries. The House version gives veto authority to districts with an A, B or C accreditation under the state’s new scoring system, while the Senate version only gives this power to A and B districts. Based on current rankings under either scenario, both the Alcorn School District (B ranking) and the Corinth School District (no ranking because of non-standard curriculum) would have veto authority. Gov. Phil Bryant delivered his second State of the State speech to a joint session of the legislature on Tuesday evening. Gov. Bryant was able to address his priorities for the 2013 legislative session ranging from education and health care improvements to responsible budgeting. Gov. Bryant, like his predecessor, devoted substantial time in his remarks to job growth and economic development. He recognized two local industries, Caterpillar and Kimberly Clark, for their recent expansions. Gov. Bryant emphasized his continued focus on economic development, saying “Mississippi will not take a back seat to anyone when it comes to attracting jobs.” The House and Senate will reconvene Monday afternoon beginning a week known as “committee week” in the legislature. For any of the thousands of bills filed to survive past Feb. 5, it must be approved by the committee in which it has been assigned. Committee meetings will begin in earnest this week and by week’s end, it will start to become a lot clearer which bills will live and which ones will die.

Persistent problems cloud Obama’s second term Rarely have second terms lived up to the hopes and expectations of presidents or their electorates. FDR’s began with an attempt to pack the Supreme Court by adding new justices and a second Depression of 1937. He was rescued only by the war in Europe in 1939 and the GOP’s nomination of “the barefoot boy from Wall Street,” Wendell Willkie. What can be called Harry Truman’s second term was a disaster. In 1949, the Soviets exploded an atom bomb and China fell to Mao. In 1950, the Rosenbergs were convicted as atomic spies for Stalin and North Korea invaded the South, igniting a three-year war Truman could not win or end. He lost the New Hampshire primary in 1952 to Sen. Estes Kefauver, dropped out and saw would-be successor Adlai Stevenson crushed by Gen. Dwight Eisenhower, as Republicans captured Congress. Truman left with the lowest approval rating of a president before or since. In his second term, Ike did better, but suffered a GOP defeat in 1958, saw Fidel Castro seize Cuba in January 1959, and had the U-2 shot down by Russia in May 1960 and his Paris summit blown up by Nikita Khrushchev, who berated Ike to his face. His vice pres-

ident, Richard Nixon, then lost the White House. The Kennedy-JohnPat son second Buchanan term began spectacuColumnist larly, with passage of all the Great Society legislation. But, in 1966, LBJ’s party suffered huge losses. In 1968, that year of assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy, of race riots in a hundred cities, and of campus anarchy, antiwar protests and an endless war in Vietnam, LBJ was challenged in the primaries, quit the race, and saw Nixon succeed him. After his own 49-state reelection victory, Nixon did not survive his second term. Jimmy Carter did not get a second term. Ronald Reagan comes close to being the exception. While he lost 10 Senate seats in 1986, he cut income tax rates from 50 to 28 percent, and his summiteering with Mikhail Gorbachev is seen as a historic success, leading to America’s victory in the Cold War. The Iran-Contra scandal almost broke his presidency. But by the time Reagan left in 1989, his popularity had been restored, the Cold War was ending, and his vice president was taking

the oath of office to succeed him. George H.W. Bush was denied a second term. And the main event of Bill Clinton’s was his impeachment and Senate trial for the Monica Lewinsky affair. In his second term, George W. Bush lost his battle for Social Security reform and lost both houses of Congress in 2006, ending his presidency with America mired in two unwinnable wars and plunging into a near-depression. By January 2009, Bush’s approval rating was approaching the Truman low, and his party had lost the White House. About Obama’s second term it is hard to be sanguine. The hopeful news is that, after four years, the U.S. economy appears to be recovering. Progress is slow, but we seem to be out of intensive care and walking the hospital halls. The perils, however, are visibly present. With its massive creation of money, the Federal Reserve is taking an immense risk that as recovery takes root, inflation may explode. And the hostility between President Obama and House Republicans likely means no big deal to constrain future deficits. Obama added $5 trillion to America’s debt bomb in his first term, and his second promises the same. Iraq is drifting toward

sectarian-civil-ethnic war. Few are optimistic about the fate of Syria when Bashar Assad falls. Even fewer are optimistic about Afghanistan after U.S. troops depart. The Taliban of Afghanistan’s past may be her future. Islamism and Islamist terrorism seem to be growth stocks in the Sahel region of Africa, the Maghreb, and the Middle and Near East, all the way to nucleararmed Pakistan. The most immediate crisis may come this year, when a re-elected Bibi Netanyahu and his neocon and War Party allies demand of the president an ultimatum to Tehran, followed by U.S. air strikes on its nuclear facilities if Iran does not capitulate. Obama may be dreaming of amnesty for illegal aliens and a Federal Gun Registry, but most of us would settle for no more wars and no double-dip recession. Remarkable how the expectations of Americans seem so modest compared to what they were when we were young. Today, the minimalist slogan, “General Motors is alive, and Osama bin Laden is dead!” is enough to get you re-elected president. (Daily Corinthian columnist Patrick J. Buchanan is the author of “Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?”)

Do gun control laws do anything to control guns? The gun control controversy is only the latest of many issues to be debated almost solely in terms of fixed preconceptions, with little or no examination of hard facts. Media discussions of gun control are dominated by two factors: the National Rifle Association and the Second Amendment. But the over-riding factual question is whether gun control laws actually reduce gun crimes in general or murder rates in particular. If, as gun control advocates claim, gun control laws really do control guns and save lives, there is nothing to prevent repealing the Second Amendment, any more than there was anything to prevent repealing the Eighteenth Amendment that created Prohibition. But, if the hard facts show that gun control laws do not actually control guns, but instead lead to more armed robberies and higher murder rates after law-abiding citizens are disarmed, then gun control laws would be a bad idea, even if there were no Second Amendment and no National Rifle Associa-

tion. The central issue boils down to this: What are the facts? Yet there are Thomas many who Sowell seem utterly unconColumnist cerned about facts. There are people who have never fired a shot in their life who do not hesitate to declare how many bullets should be the limit to put into a firearm’s clip or magazine. Virtually all gun control advocates say that 30 bullets in a magazine is far too many for self-defense or hunting — even if they have never gone hunting and never had to defend themselves with a gun. Anyone who faces three home invaders, jeopardizing himself or his family, might find 30 bullets barely adequate. After all, not every bullet hits, even at close range, and not every hit incapacitates. You can get killed by a wounded man. These plain life-anddeath realities have been

ignored for years by people who go ballistic when they hear about how many shots were fired by the police in some encounter with a criminal. As someone who once taught pistol shooting in the Marine Corps, I am not the least bit surprised by the number of shots fired. I have seen people miss a stationary target at close range, even in the safety and calm of a pistol range. We cannot expect everybody to know that. But we can expect them to know that they don’t know -- and to stop spouting off about life-and-death issues when they don’t have the facts. The central question as to whether gun control laws save lives or cost lives has generated many factual studies over the years. But these studies have been like the proverbial tree that falls in an empty forest, and has been heard by no one — certainly not by zealots who have made up their minds and don’t want to be confused by the facts. Most factual studies show no reduction in gun crimes, including murder, under gun control laws. A sig-

nificant number of studies show higher rates of murder and other gun crimes under gun control laws. How can this be? It seems obvious to some gun control zealots that, if no one had guns, there would be fewer armed robberies and fewer people shot to death. But nothing is easier than to disarm peaceful, lawabiding people. And nothing is harder than to disarm people who are neither. One can cherry-pick the factual studies, or cite some studies that have been discredited, but the great bulk of the studies show that gun control laws do not in fact control guns. On net balance, they do not save lives but cost lives. Gun control laws allow some people to vent their emotions, politicians to grandstand and self-righteous people to “make a statement” — but all at the cost of other people’s lives.

State Briefs Associated Press

Man gets prison for home repair fraud GULFPORT — A former Wiggins businessman has been sentenced to serve 12 years in prison for defrauding south Mississippi homeowners who had hired him to fix their properties after Hurricane Katrina struck in 2005. Harrison County Circuit Judge John Gargiulo sentenced 53-year-old Charles Lynn Reeder last week to a total of 15 years in prison, but suspended three of those years. Reeder pleaded guilty to charges that included home repair fraud. The Sun Herald reports that Reeder’s victims included two elderly residents. He allegedly lied to the property owners about his qualifications and the work he performed through his company, ABC House Leveling and Home Maintenance.  

environmental phase of the project. The Parkway and tribe envision a center with replicas of historical Chickasaw living quarters and other interpretive exhibits.  

Woman gets life in prison for murder GULFPORT — A Gulfport woman has been sentenced to life in prison for stabbing her boyfriend to death. Harrison County Circuit Judge Lisa Dodson sentenced 41-year-old Bertha Mae Wilson after a jury convicted her of murder in the Aug. 14, 2011, death of 36-year-old Marcus Spencer, of Meridian. The Sun Herald reports that Spencer was naked and lying on his back in Wilson’s bedroom when

she stabbed him in the neck, kicked him and stomped on his face. Wilson testified that Spencer had pushed her during an argument over her suspicions that he was having an affair. But a forensic pathologist testified that Spencer didn’t have any defensive wounds, suggesting it was a surprise attack. Jurors deliberated for about 30 minutes before convicting Wilson.  

Sheriff’s deputy shot on duty BROOKHAVEN — A Lincoln County sheriff’s deputy was taken to a Jackson hospital after he was shot while on duty. Sheriff Steve Rushing told The Daily Leader that the deputy, Byron Catch-

ings, was driving down a street in Brookhaven on Friday night when he was apparently shot once through the driver’s side door. Catchings kept driving and radioed for help before he was taken to the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson. His condition wasn’t immediately available, but Rushing said he didn’t lose consciousness before he was taken to the hospital. Rushing said investigators were questioning a “person of interest” in the shooting but didn’t elaborate.  

Jackson County sets open house for shelter VANCLEAVE — The Jackson County Board of Supervisors will hold an

open house on Feb. 7 at the new Vancleave hurricane shelter. Supervisor John McKay tells the Mississippi Press that the open house marks the completion of three identical shelters that have been under simultaneous construction by the county since 2011. Each of the shelters is 10,000 square feet and will be able to withstand 200 mph winds. They have self-supporting utilities and will be able to house hundreds of people. Each shelter cost $3 million dollars with a vast majority of the funding coming from the state and federal emergency management agencies. The other shelters are in Hurley and the St.

Martin.  

Tonnage, revenue jump at Vicksburg port VICKSBURG — The Port of Vicksburg saw increases in tonnage and revenue in 2012 — due to both a monthlong closure in 2011 during the record-breaking Mississippi River flood and a deal with DuPont to ship raw steel-making components. Port director Wayne Mansfield tells the Vicksburg Post that for 2012, shipments reached 332,453 tons, up 56 percent from 2011’s flood-lowered figures. Mansfield says revenue for the year hit $2.5 million for the first time in more than a decade,

Senator Harkin won’t seek 6th Senate term BY THOMAS BEAUMONT Associated Press

CUMMING, Iowa — U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin said Saturday he will not seek a sixth term in 2014, a decision that eases some of the burden the national Republican Party faces in retaking the Senate. Harkin, chairman of an influential Senate committee, announced his decision during an interview with The Associated Press, and said the move could surprise some. But the 73-year-old cited his age — he would be 81 at the end of a sixth term — as a factor in the decision, saying it was time to pass the torch he has held for nearly 30 years, freeing a new generation of Iowa Democrats to seek higher office. “I just think it’s time for me to step aside,” Harkin told the AP. Harkin, first elected in 1984, ranks 7th in seniority, and 4th among majority Democrats. He is chairman of the health, education, labor and pensions committee, and chairman of the largest appropriations subcommittee. Harkin has long aligned with the Senate’s more liberal members, and his signature legislative accomplishment is the 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act. He also served as a key salesman of Presi-

dent Barack Obama’s 2010 health care bill to the wary left. “I’m not saying that giving this up and walking away is easy. It’s very tough,” Harkin said at his rural Iowa home south of Des Moines. “But I’m not quitting today. I’m not passing the torch sitting down.” Harkin’s news defied outward signals. Besides being beloved in his party, Harkin has $2.7 million in his campaign war chest, second most among members nearing the end of their terms, and was planning a gala fundraiser in Washington, D.C., next month featuring pop star Lady Gaga. Although members of his family have been diagnosed with cancer, Harkin said his health is good — and reported a recent positive colonoscopy. But he said “you never know,” and that he wanted to travel and spend his retirement with his wife Ruth “before it’s too late.” He also nodded to his political longevity: “The effect of that cascades down and it opens a lot of doors of opportunity” for future candidates, he said. But by opening a door in Iowa, Harkin has created a potential headache for his party nationally. Democrats likely would

have had the edge in 2014 with the seat, considering Harkin’s fundraising prowess and healthy approval. A poll by the Des Moines Register taken last fall showed a majority of Iowans approved of his job performance. Democrats hold a 55-45 advantage in the Senate, requiring Republicans to gain six seats to win back the chamber. But Democrats have more seats to defend in 2014 — 20 compared to only 13 for Republicans. Historically, the president’s party loses seats in the midterm elections after his re-election. In GOP-leaning West Virginia, five-term Democratic Sen. Jay Rockefeller recently announced he would not seek re-election. And on Friday, Georgia Sen. Saxby Chambliss, a Republican, announced that he wouldn’t seek a third term. Democratic incumbents also face tough reelection races in Arkansas, Louisiana, Montana, North Carolina and Alaska — all states carried by Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney in November’s presidential election. Harkin’s move opens a rare open Senate seat in Iowa. Harkin, Iowa’s junior senator, is outranked by Sen. Charles Grassley, who has held the state’s other seat since 1980.

names of gun violence victims and messages such as “Ban Assault Weapons Now,” joined a rally for gun control on Saturday, marching from the Capitol to the Washington Monument. Leading the crowd were marchers with “We Are Sandy Hook” signs, paying tribute to victims of the December school shooting in Newtown, Conn. Washington Mayor Vincent Gray and other city officials marched alongside them. The crowd stretched for at least two blocks along Constitution Avenue. Participants held signs reading “Gun Control Now,” “Stop NRA” and “What Would Jesus Pack?” among other messages. Other signs were simple and white, with the names of victims of gun violence. About 100 residents from Newtown, where a gunman killed 20 firstgraders and six teachers, traveled to Washington together, organizers said. Participant Kara Baekey from nearby Norwalk, Conn., said that when she heard about the Newtown shooting, she immediately thought of her two young children. She said she decided she must take action, and that’s why she traveled to Washington for the march. “I wanted to make sure this never happens at my kids’ school or any other school,” Baekey said. “It just can’t happen again.” Once the crowd arrived at the monument, speakers called for a ban on military-style assault weapons and highcapacity ammunition and for universal background checks on gun sales. Education Secretary Arne Duncan told the crowd it’s not about taking away Second Amendment gun rights, but about gun safety and saving lives. He said he and President Barack Obama would do everything they could to enact gun control policies. “This is about trying to create a climate in which our children can grow up free of fear,” Duncan said. “This march is a

starting point; it is not an ending point ... We must act, we must act, we must act.” Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton, D.C.’s non-voting representative in Congress, said the gun lobby can be stopped, and the crowd chanted back, “Yes, we can.”  

Nation Briefs Associated Press

Ryan says GOP needs to pick its fights WASHINGTON — Rep. Paul Ryan said Saturday that Republicans need to stick together and pick their fights during President Barack Obama’s second term, rejecting some White House proposals outright and trying to infuse others with conservative principles. In a speech to conservatives, the GOP’s 2012 vice presidential nominee said Obama would attempt to divide Republicans but urged them to avoid internal squabbles after a second straight presidential loss. “We can’t get rattled.

We won’t play the villain in his morality plays. We have to stay united,” Ryan said at the National Review Institute’s weekend conference on the future of conservatism. “We have to show that if given the chance, we can govern. We have better ideas.” The Wisconsin congressman outlined a pragmatic approach for a party dealing with last November’s election defeats and trying to determine whether to oppose Obama’s agenda at every turn or shape his proposals with conservative principles.

activists who also heard from Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin and Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas. Govs. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana and Bob McDonnell of Virginia were scheduled to address the conference on Sunday. The theme also dominated the Republican National Committee’s winter meeting, which ended Friday in Charlotte, N.C. With a surging minority population altering the electorate, Republican leaders have discussed the need to attract more women and Hispanics while at the same time standing firm on the values that unite conservatives. Republicans said despite the losses, the party could return to power by projecting optimism and attracting new voters with a message of economic opportunity.

Walker, a star among conservatives after surviving a union-led campaign to recall him from office, said government needed “brown-bag common sense,” a reference to his frugal practice of packing his own lunch of ham-and-cheese sandwiches every day. Qualities like optimism, staying relevant to voters and showing courage in tackling big problems would be rewarded at the voting booth, he said. “We’ve got to learn to be more optimistic. We’ve got to learn to give a viable alternative to the voters,” Walker said. Cruz said Republicans needed to use upcoming fights over the budget and the deficit as “leverage points” to tame longterm spending and debt. Projecting an upbeat outlook for the party, he said Obama’s policies would drive many voters to Republicans just as many Americans turned to Ronald Reagan after the economic turmoil of the late 1970s.  

Thousands march for gun control WASHINGTON — Thousands of people, many holding signs with

Health answers sought about war garbage WASHINGTON — J.D. Williams didn’t think much about the smoke cloud that often shrouded his air base in Iraq. Not when it covered everything he owned with black soot or when his wheezing and coughing made it difficult to sleep at night. “We just went about our business because there was a war going on,” said Williams, a retired chief warrant officer who was responsible for maintaining some 250 aircraft for the U.S. Army’s 101st Airborne Division. He returned home from that second stint in Iraq in 2006 and subsequently was diagnosed with an irreversible lung disease that his doctor suspects could be related to smoke from one of the hundreds of burn pits that dotted Iraq and Afghanistan during the course of the two wars. The pits were used to burn off the garbage that accumulates at military bases, everything from Styrofoam and metal to paints, solvents, human waste and medical waste. A new Department of Veterans Affairs registry, mandated by Congress, will be used to try to determine if there is a link between the burn pits and long-term health problems. Military personnel who were stationed near an open burn pit can sign up. Researchers will use the database to monitor health trends in participants, and the VA will alert them to major problems detected. Over the long term, the findings could make it easier for veterans who served near burn pits to obtain disability payments.

FSA will continue to accept SURE applications for 2011 crop losses through June 7. The Supplemental Revenue Assistance Program (SURE) provides payments to producers when crop revenues are below the crop guarantee. The SURE payment is equal to 60 percent of the dif-

ference between the crop guarantee and revenue. All crops on all farms of a producer are included in the calculation to determine the guarantee and revenue under SURE. SURE payments are limited to $100,000. To be eligible for the 2011 SURE program, a producer must have must have at least one crop

with a 10 percent production loss. In addition, the producer must have crop insurance on all insurable crops. For crops not covered by crop insurance, such as pumpkins and cucumbers, the producer must have purchased coverage under FSAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Non Insured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP). The requirement for

crop insurance or NAP coverage is waived for crops that are not economically significant to the farming operation.

Mississippi pays $4.35 million lump sum to Nutt Associated Press

OXFORD, Miss. — Mississippi has agreed to pay former coach Houston Nutt a lump sum of $4.35 million to complete his contract buyout. Nutt was fired after the 2011 season with about $6 million remaining on his contract. Ole Miss athletic director Ross Bjork said on Saturday in a statement that the school’s agreement with Nutt happened last month, and the one-time payment would save the athletic department about $550,000. Bjork said the agreement was a “win-win for everyone and both of us can now move ahead.” He said the money came from the school’s private athletic foundation. Nutt coached for four seasons at Ole Miss, leading the program to back-toback Cotton Bowl wins in 2008 and 2009 before slumping to a 2-10 record in his final season.

Kossuth wins again in tourney  BY DONICA PHIFER dphifer@dailycorinthian.com 

NEW ALBANY — The Aggies extended their winning streak to a pair, taking a two point win over West Union in the Hot Bed Classic on Saturday. The 57-55 game was dominated by West Union in the first quarter, the Aggies falling into a 10 point deficit in spite of the opening 3-pointer by Justin Mills. Kossuth gained 20 points of their own in the second pe-

riod, Mills pushing through for 7 of his 13 points to put the Aggies within four points at the half. Rick Hodum, a first time leading scorer for Kossuth with 14-points, led the charge in the second half. Hodum racked up 10 points in the third period, as Josh Whitaker grabbed 5 to push the Aggies into a 47-44 lead heading into the final period. Brandon Grayson provided the winning edge, nailing four consecutive free-throws to

close out the game and earn the win. The Aggies see action again three times next week when they will host Booneville on January 29, and Holly Springs on February 1 in Division 1-3A contests. Kossuth will close out the week on February 2 in a rematch with West Union, which will also serve as Senior Night for the Aggies. Tip off for all three games is set for 6 p.m.

AUBURN, Ala. — Mississippi had an awful night at the free throw line until it mattered most. Marshall Henderson scored 15 points and made the gamewinning foul shots with 7 seconds remaining to lift the No. 23 Rebels over Auburn 63-61 on Saturday night. Ole Miss was an embarrassing 2 for 15 at the line before Henderson came through. “We weren’t very efficient from the foul line,” coach Andy Kennedy said. “We were close to 50 percent from the 3, but when you go 4 for 17 from the foul line and you can still find a way to grind out a road SEC win, I think it speaks to the character of this group and their will to win.” Henderson went to the free

throw stripe with the score tied after an off-the-ball foul was called on Shaq Johnson as Ole Miss (17-2, 6-0 Southeastern Conference) was inbounding under its own basket. Frankie Sullivan’s last-second heave for Auburn was off the mark, and the Rebels escaped. LaDarius White led Ole Miss with 17 points and Jarvis Summers added 14. Chris Denson had 18 points for Auburn (8-11, 2-4). Auburn led 33-31 at halftime and by as many as nine before Ole Miss came charging back in the second half. The Tigers jumped out to a 9-0 lead and were still up by nine after Noel Johnson’s 3-pointer with 5:21 to play in the first half. From there, Ole Miss went

on an 11-4 run to cut the deficit to two at halftime. White scored on a layup a minute into the second half to tie the game. “Obviously it hurt,” Auburn coach Tony Barbee said about Ole Miss’ run to close the first half. “When you are up (nine) with 3 minutes to go you are supposed to finish that half out. I had to go to the bench a little bit during that time and when you go to the bench, you have guys contribute, not just offensively but defensively as well.” Auburn trailed 61-56 with 3:30 to go before a quick 5-0 spurt tied the score with a minute to play. With less than 20 seconds left, Murphy Holloway blocked Denson’s layup attempt and got the ball to the Rebels’ Reginald

Buckner in transition. But Shaq Johnson tracked down Buckner and blocked the ball out of bounds to set up the game’s final sequence. Shaq Johnson knocked Henderson to the floor as he rotated on the inbounds set and was whistled for a foul. Henderson hit both free throws to give Ole Miss a victory in a hostile environment. “To me, the greatest compliment, I think, this program has been given is when other people are paying to see you play,” Kennedy said. “Auburn is 8-10 and they’ve lost three in row. Having a sellout tonight, that was because Ole Miss had a rank in front of their name. “I’m glad our guys responded.”

Stokes, Tennessee pull out 54-53 win over Alabama BY STEVE MEGARGEE finally breathed a sigh of relief. Associated Press KNOXVILLE, Tenn. Stokes’ defense on — Jarnell Stokes kept Alabama guard Trevor waiting to hear the Lacey in the final secwhistle. onds Saturday preWhen it never came, served Tennessee’s the Tennessee forward 54-53 victory over Ala-

bama. The Volunteers (10-8, 2-4 SEC) rallied from a 10-point deficit and pulled ahead for good in the final minute, but their victory wasn’t secure until the final horn.

Alabama (12-7, 4-2) had a chance to win after Trae Golden missed the front end of a oneand-one opportunity with 15.4 seconds left. After a scramble for the rebound, the ball went

out of bounds off Tennessee with 11.8 seconds remaining. The Crimson Tide worked the ball to Lacey, who left his feet and appeared to draw contact from Stokes.

Mississippi State falls to No. 8 Florida Gators 82-47, Ray frustrated BY DAVID BRANDT Associated Press

STARKVILLE, Miss. — Florida has one of the most experienced, talented and deep teams in the country. Mississippi State’s roster lacks any of those attributes. But that’s not why first-year Bulldogs’ coach

Rick Ray is frustrated. Instead, Ray bemoaned a long string of bad decisions and selfish basketball that led to No. 8 Florida’s easy 82-47 victory over the Bulldogs on Saturday night. Kenny Boynton and Erik Murphy both scored 18 points and the 8th-

ranked Gators poured in a season-high 14 3-pointers in an easy 82-47 victory over Mississippi State on Saturday night. “They have the best players in the SEC and the most talented players in the SEC, but their willingness to share the basketball is by far their

best attribute,” Ray said. “Our team needs to learn from that ... Right now, we’re just a selfish basketball team. Then on top of that, we’re not defending the way we need to defend because we’re so wrapped up in our offense.” Boynton said the reason for Florida’s shooting suc-

cess wasn’t because of a fancy scheme. Instead, it was simply good decisionmaking. “We took open shots,” Boynton said. “Patric Young did a great job finding us when they doubled him on the post. He found shooters and we did a good job knocking them

down.” Scottie Wilbekin and Young both added 13 points. The Gators (16-2, 6-0 Southeastern Conference) have now won eight straight and were never challenged in this one, bolting out to a 20-6 lead in less Please see STATE | 9

FSU’s Manuel leads South to Senior Bowl win BY JOHN ZENOR Associated Press

MOBILE, Ala. — EJ Manuel’s January couldn’t have gone much better on the field. More importantly, he’s hoping for a similarly happy February for his family. The Florida State quarterback passed for a touchdown and rushed for another on the South’s first two drives in a 2116 victory over the North in the Senior Bowl on Saturday, and was named Most Outstanding Player. Now, he can try to be the MOS — Most Outstanding Son. His mother, Jackie Manuel, who was diagnosed with breast cancer before the season, has been recovering from her final round of chemotherapy, and Manuel said she’s scheduled to have surgery on Feb. 1. “That’s kind of been my motivation,” Manuel said. “I call my mom every single day and tell her I love her. I never miss a day. “They’ll be sending that award home to her. I won that award for her. I went out there and played well for her. I’m happy I was able to do it.” And even happier to return to her side in Virginia for a few days, instead of just squeezing in Skype and Facetime sessions. It was a great finish for Manuel to a month that began with a 291-yard performance in an Orange Bowl victory over Northern Illinois. Manuel and running backs Stepfan Taylor and Mike James combined to put the game for senior NFL prospects away on the South’s final drive. Stanford’s Taylor carried five times for 32 yards and caught a 6-yard pass from Manuel. Manuel converted a fourthand-1 play on a sneak to set up a 5-yard touchdown run for Miami’s James with 2:41 left.

than eight minutes and a 41-19 advantage by halftime. Boynton and Murphy led the Gators with four 3-pointers each. Boynton finished 7 of 11 from the field and 4 of 8 from 3-point range. The Gators are already known as an elite defensive team, giving up about 51

points per game. But their offense was just as efficient against the Bulldogs, as Florida made 31 of 56 shots (55.4 percent) from the field and 14 of 31 (45.2 percent) from 3-point range. Murphy shot 6 of 8 from the field — including 4 of 6 from 3-point range — while Young was 6 of 6 from the floor and grabbed four offensive rebounds. Florida had 23 assists on 31 field

We moved and passed the basketball and really got good looks throughout the course of the game.” Fred Thomas led Mississippi State (7-11, 2-4) with 19 points. Colin Borchert and Gavin Ware both added 10. The Bulldogs have lost four straight.

Lawmakers eye more K-12 education changes BY JEFF AMY Associated Press

JACKSON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Charter schools, though they have dominated the first three weeks of the Mississippi Legislature, are only the beginning. House and Senate lawmakers are considering numerous other measures to change K-12 education, many of which have never been debated before. Some proposals are being pushed by Republican Gov. Phil Bryant, who spent months calling for 2013â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Legislature to focus on education. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have brought for-

ward or plan to bring forward an array of ideas designed to improve education in Mississippi,â&#x20AC;? House Speaker Philip Gunn, RClinton, said Friday. Ideas are circulating to pay for more 4-year-olds to attend preschool, give tax breaks for people who donate money for children to attend private schools, require children to read on grade level before passing third grade, and tinker with the public school funding formula. Thursday, a Senate committee passed a bill to require county school districts that now elect

superintendents to appoint them, except where voters opt out. House Education Committee Chairman John Moore, R-Brandon, said his committee is likely to take up a similar measure, among 15 or 20 bills he expects the panel to approve. Moore also wants to change state law to make all school board members elected. Now, board members are all elected in some districts, but can be all-appointed or a mix of appointed and elected in other districts. It appears likely that

both the House and the Senate will give consideration to a plan to increase state subsidies for 4-yearold preschool. Sen. Brice Wiggins, R-Pascagoula and Rep. Toby Barker, R-Hattiesburg, are carrying bills that would create local early learning consortiums. The state would give them money or tax-credit subsidies that the locals would have to match to pay for more children to attend preschool. The slots could be in private or public operations, Barker said. He estimates his bill would create 1,375 slots in the

first year. Those bills could compete with or complement Bryantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request to start providing state money to Mississippi Building Blocks. That program has instructed children, trained preschool teachers and provided materials in private child care centers over the last four years, using private money. Some ideas seem to have little opposition, as least in concept, such as requiring improved reading instruction in earlier grades and not allowing students to progress if

theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not reading well. But questions remain about the details. For example, The Parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Campaign Executive Director Nancy Loome says that following Floridaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s model on reading could require Mississippi to make the same large investments in reading instruction that the Sunshine State did. Others have asked about where Mississippi will set the bar for moving on to fourth grade. Bryant has said repeatedly he wants to set it at â&#x20AC;&#x153;proficient,â&#x20AC;? the second highest of Mississippiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s four levels.

Aging America: Elder abuse, use of shelters rising BY DAN SEWELL Associated Press

MASON, Ohio — She raises her hands to her snow-white hair in a gesture of frustrated bewilderment, then slowly lowers them to cover eyes filling with tears. The woman, in her 70s, is trying to explain how she wound up in a shelter that could well be where she spends the rest of her life. While the woman was living with a close family member, officials at the Shalom Center say, her money was being drained away by people overcharging for her grocery shopping, while her body and spirit were sapped by physical neglect and emotional torment. She says she was usually ordered to “go to bed,” where she lay in a dark room, upset, unable to sleep. “She just yelled at me all the time. Screamed at me, cussed me out,” the woman says of a family member. “I don’t know what happened. She just got tired of me, I guess.” The Shalom Center offers shelter, along with medical, psychological and legal help, to elderly abuse victims in this northern Cincinnati suburb. It is among a handful in the country that provide sanctuary from such treatment, a problem experts say is growing along with the age of the nation’s population. The number of Americans 65 and over is projected to nearly double by 2030 because of the 74 million baby boomers born in 1946-64, and the number of people 85 and over is increasing even faster rate. The number of seniors being abused, exploited or neglected every year is often estimated at about 2 million, judging by available statistics and surveys, but experts say the number could be much higher. Some research indicates that 1 in 10 seniors have suffered some form of abuse at

least once. “That’s a big number,” said Sharon MerrimanNai, project director of the Clearinghouse on Abuse and Neglect of the Elderly, based at the University of Delaware. “It’s a huge issue, and it’s just going to get bigger.” Recognition of and mechanisms for dealing with elder abuse are many years behind strides that have been made in child abuse awareness and protection, experts say. Getting comprehensive numbers of the abused is complicated, experts say, because the vast majority of cases go unreported out of embarrassment, fear of being cut off from family — most abuse is at the hands of relatives — or confusion about what has happened. Abuse sometimes comes to light only by chance. County-level adult protective services caseworkers can get anonymous tips. In one recent Ohio case, a hair stylist noticed her elderly client was wincing in pain and got her to acknowledge she had been hit in the ribs by a relative. Another Shalom Center patient was referred by sheriff’s detectives who said his son beat him. “Are these older people going to be allowed to live their lives the way they deserve to?” said Carol Silver Elliott, CEO of the Cedar Village retirement community, of which the Shalom Center is a part. “We really are not addressing it as a society the way we should.” The Obama administration has said it has increased its focus on protecting American seniors by establishing a national resource center and a consumer protection office, among other steps. But needs are growing at a time when government spending on social services is being cut on many levels or not keeping up with demand.

>ŽiÊޜÕÀÃivÊ Vœ“vœÀÌ>Li

In Ohio, slowly recovering from the recession, budgets have been slashed in such areas as staffs that investigate elderly abuse cases. Staff at the Jobs and Family Services agency in Hamilton County in Cincinnati is about half the size it was in 2009, spokesman Brian Gregg said. Even as national statistics indicate elder abuse is increasing, the number of elder abuse cases the agency can probe is lower, down from 574 cases in 2009 to 477 last year, he said. There are no longer enough adult protective services investigators to routinely check on older adults unless there is a specific report of abuse or neglect. “We do the best we can down here,” Gregg said, noting that the agency has a hotline to take anony-

mous reports and that it is seeing more financial scams targeting elderly people. The price for not getting ahead of the problem and preventing abuse of people who would otherwise be healthy and financially stable will be high, warned Joy Solomon, a former Manhattan assistant prosecutor who helped pioneer elder abuse shelters with the Weinberg Center for Elder Abuse Prevention, which opened in 2005 at the Hebrew Home community in New York City. “My argument always is, if all you do is come in when the crisis has occurred, it is much more costly than preventative care,” said Solomon, director of the shelter, which takes in about 15 people a year. “We’re going to have to pay for it anyway.”

New 2-yr agreement with qualifying voice and data plans or Mobile Share plan required.

She and others in the field say the first steps are to raise public awareness and train police, lawyers, criminal justice officials and others to recognize and respond to signs of abuse. Prosecutors often have been reluctant to purse elder abuse cases, which can be complex because of medical and financial complications, the witness’ ability to testify or reluctance to testify against relatives, according to research for the National Institute of Justice. In suburban Los Angeles, Orange County started an Elder Abuse Forensic Center nearly 10 years ago; it helps police, geriatrics specialists, lawyers and social services workers coordinate efforts to identify, investigate and prosecute abuse cases. New York City started its Elder Abuse Center

to 2009 to bring a multiorganization approach to the problem, saying nearly 100,000 older people are abused in their homes in the city alone. While he was Ohio’s attorney general, Richard Cordray, now director of the federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, initiated in 2009 the state Elder Abuse Commission, something current Attorney General Mike DeWine has continued. The commission has focused on training and education and hopes to launch a public awareness campaign this year, said Ursel McElroy, the longtime adult protection services investigator who leads it. The commission also has been pushing for legislation to improve legal protection and abuse prevention, expand training, and improve statistical data.

General Grant stands with one of his favorite horses, Cincinnati.

Three famous horses passed through Corinth BY TOM PARSON NPS Ranger

Despite my warning, some people were surprised by the darkness of my previous article on Henry Robinett. Sorry, but like I said, when the subject is war, it’s not always easy to paint a pretty picture. The darkness will always rear its ugly head. My coworker, Hannah, suggested I lighten things up a bit this week and write about “unicorns, rainbows and a friendly T-rex.” I hit the books and tried to find a credible account of Civil War unicorns in Corinth. But surprisingly, I drew a blank. So I did the next best thing. I figured if I couldn’t write about magical horses, I could at least tell you about some of the famous horses that visited Corinth during the war years. Perhaps the most celebrated steed to come from this area was a coal black Morgan named Rienzi. And no, the town was not named for the horse, but the other way around. In June of 1862, Rienzi was minding his own business, eating a little grass, when the 2nd Michigan Cavalry rode by his pasture. The commanding officer of the regiment, Colonel Philip Sheridan, had been bumped up to brigade commander and young Captain Archibald Campbell had taken over the helm of the 2nd Cavalry. The story is that Campbell saw the horse as a convenient way to stay on Sheridan’s good side, so

he gave the animal to his boss as a present. Where the story gets a little murky is “how” Campbell acquired the horse. One story is he just put a rope around its neck and led it out of the field. Another tale says Campbell traded two mules for Rienzi, and yet a third insists he hauled out his wallet and paid a tidy sum for the charger. I’m inclined to believe the first account. At any rate, Sheridan accepted the black horse, which stood an impressive 17 hands high at the withers. Sheridan said he was, “an animal of great intelligence and immense strength and endurance. He always held his head high, and by the quickness of his movements, gave many persons the idea he was exceedingly impetuous. This was not so, for I could at any time control him by a firm hand and a few words, and he was as cool and quiet under fire as any one of my soldiers.” When Sheridan was transferred out of Mississippi, he took Rienzi with him. The big war horse was in several battles and was actually wounded four times, but it was at the Battle of Cedar Creek, Virginia, he gained his greatest fame. The battle broke out at dawn on Oct. 19, 1864, and for the first few hours all the fighting favored Gen. Jubal Early’s Confederates. What was Sheridan doing early in the battle?

Nothing. He wasn’t even there. He was 20 miles away in Winchester on a return trip from a meeting in Washington, D.C. When he learned of the battle, he jumped on Rienzi and rode the 20 miles at a gallop, rallying his demoralized troops along the way. Their presence, man and horse, galvanized the Union soldiers, who returned to the fight and turned a defeat into a victory. Rienzi was a hero! Thomas Buchanan Read wrote a poem about the duo that was widely printed and soon everyone knew about the famous horse. Here are a few lines: Hurrah! hurrah for Sheridan! Hurrah! hurrah for horse and man! And when their statues are placed on high Under the dome of the Union sky, The American soldier’s Temple of Fame, There, with the glorious general’s name, Be it said, in letters both bold and bright: “Here is the steed that saved the day By carrying Sheridan into the fight, From Winchester -twenty miles away!” I won’t say that fame went to his head, but the horse was thereafter known as “Winchester.” Rienzi (as I prefer to call him) never did return to his Mississippi roots. He stayed with Phil Sheridan, who rose to General in Chief of the U.S. Army,

and died in a comfortable stall in Chicago in 1878. That was Rienzi that died in the stall, not Sheridan. By the way, you can visit Rienzi/Winchester next time you are in Washington, D.C. He was stuffed and is on display at the Smithsonian. Another famous steed to trot down the streets of Corinth was Gen. Albert Sidney Johnston’s horse Fire-Eater. The name “fire eater” was used to describe the outspoken Southern nationalists who led the call for secession. I’m not sure of the horse’s politics, but I do know he was a magnificent Thoroughbred bay, every bit as impressive as his famous master. Just before the Battle of Shiloh, Gen. Johnston confidently declared, “Tonight, we will water our horses in the Tennessee River.” Sadly, Fire-Eater never was able to get his drink. Gen. Johnston was mortally wounded in the leg and Fire-Eater was struck by at least three bullets. After the battle, the horse passed to Johnston’s son, William, who sent the animal off to Arkansas to recuperate. Once he recovered, Johnston kept him and rode him through the rest of the war. As luck would have it, William Johnston and Fire-eater were with President Jefferson Davis near Irwinville, Ga., on the morning of May 10, 1865, when Davis and his party were captured by

the 4th Michigan Cavalry. (What is it with Michigan Cavalry capturing these famous horses?) FireEater became a P.O.W. Fire Eater’s ultimate fate is a mystery. What we do know is the horse was immortalized in bronze. There is a statue of Gen. Johnston and Fire-Eater atop a tomb at the Metairie Cemetery near New Orleans. The general was briefly buried there during the war, but in 1867, his body was moved to Austin, Texas. Fire-Eater’s whereabouts are unknown. Johnston’s opponent at the Battle of Shiloh, Gen. Ulysses S. Grant, was an accomplished equestrian. At West Point, he excelled in riding and his good friend (and future Confederate general) James Longstreet said, “In horsemanship, he was noted as the most proficient in the Academy. In fact, rider and horse held together like the fabled centaur.” Grant rode a horse called Fox during the battle, a horse that had actually slipped and fallen on the future president a few days before, badly spraining his ankle. The general’s ankle, not the horse’s. Gen. Grant rode through the Battle of Shiloh with a crutch strapped to his saddle. After the battle, a Union officer (my guess is a Michigan cavalryman) found an abandoned Confederate horse on the field. He was a “rawboned horse, very ugly and apparently good for noth-

ing.” As a joke, he sent it to Colonel C.B. Lagow, a member of Grant’s staff, who was pretty well-todo and was known for his excellent choice in horses. Lagow was getting ribbed by the other officers when Grant came by and told him the horse was actually a Thoroughbred and a very valuable one at that. Lagow didn’t want anything to do with the horrid looking beast and was grateful when the general offered to take him off his hands. Lagow should have kept him. All through the Siege of Corinth, Grant nursed the horse back to health. Because it really was pretty ugly, Grant named the animal Kangaroo. Eventually, it recovered its health and beauty and became one of Grant’s favorites. Kangaroo was a stalwart companion and carried the general through the Vicksburg campaign. So what can we learn from this story? First, don’t trust your horse around cavalry from Michigan. Second, there were indeed some celebrated horses that passed through Corinth during the war. I’m sorry, Hannah, but as famous as these animals were, none of them had a magical horn growing out of its forehead. I’ll see what I can do in another article about the friendly T-rex. (Tom Parson is a National Park Service ranger at the Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center.)

Golden Sawmill brought many families to northern Mississippi The Golden Sawmill had a powerful and longlasting impact on northern Mississippi. Not only did the mill d e c i mate vast stands of virgin timber, but hordes of laborers poured RaNae into the to Vaughn area work in Historically the mill. Speaking T h i s brought a much-needed economic surge to a poor area. Even today, there are many people in the northwest Alabama and northeast Mississippi area whose families flocked to the area with the advent of the Golden Sawmill. Thousands of acres of virgin timber were cut by the mill. The history of the Golden Sawmill is somewhat sketchy. The formation of the sawmill began in 1919, but land purchases were formulated in 1920. At that time, the company started its operation. It seems that a man by the name of H.M. Young was in the grave business in Corinth in the early 1900s.

He began to purchase large tracts of land from Dee Luther of Minnesota and Franklin Webber of Boston. They put together a large number of acres in northeast Itawamba County and surrounding areas in Tishomingo County, Prentiss County and Franklin County, Ala. These men had dealings in the stave business, according to some older people. In the early 1900s, staves were a big business in this part of the country. On April 1, 1919, Webber sold a large sum of land to the amount of 10,146 acres for a little more than half a million dollars. On Sept. 9, 1920, a bill of sale for lumber was recorded in the courthouse in Iuka. This bill of sale is for yellow pine shipped to Chicago Lumber and Coal Company for 860,187 board feet. It seems that the Golden Sawmill was buying lumber from a number of peckerwood mills located in and around Golden. The names of some are L. R. and A. T. Davis at Bay Springs, S. J. Davis at Dennis, and Parker Sawmill. In this bill of sale, the Golden Sawmill is known as the Young Curtis Com-

pany and the partnership of Hubert F. Young, W.D. Henry, and Louis Werner Sawmill Company at St. Louis. In 1921 the Golden Sawmill Company purchased a Type B Shay-geared locomotive rated to weigh 42 tons in working order, with the original builder number of 2062. The purchase price for the locomotive was $7,000 and was bought from the Birmingham Rail Locomotive Company. There is a statement of the fact “this locomotive will be used for logging operations in Golden, Mississippi, and not to be moved. “ On April 25, 1924, James Copeland, as special commissioner for the Copeland Estate on behalf of Mrs. Gertrude Clements, sold to Herbert F. Young all the lands except the Copeland home place on the Ridge Road. Mrs. Clements purchased the home place for $15,000. Mr. Herbert F. Young purchased the remaining property for $409,750. During the sawmill’s heyday, Hassell Leathers tells about lying across a stump in the Chubby Creek bottom when he was a child with his feet hooked on one side of

the stump and his fingers hooked over the other side. According to him, this stump was at least 5-½ feet across and was only one of many such all across north Mississippi. Hazel Cromeans tells about a picture of her father, Gus Woods, who logged for the Golden Sawmill, taken by the side of one being hauled to the mill. The log was so big only one could be hauled on the wagon, and that log tested the strength of the oxen pulling the wagon. Evidence of the rail lines used to haul the massive logs to the mill in Golden still exists. Railroad spurs were built over North Mississippi and into the Freedom Hills. The late F. J. Horn, who worked as a logger for several years, began working in the woods for the sawmill when he was about 15. He said the main line in Itawamba County ran from Golden to south of Burnt Mills and to the edge of Mud Creek. This line ran parallel with Highway 25 and stretches of the roadbed are still visible and filled in places and even cuts in the hills where the standard gauge railway was

built. The main line was built with a steam-powered drag line mounted on rail cars. The rail line was built and finished in 20foot sections. According to Coot Horn, the trees were laid top to butt along the ground and covered with dirt to form a raised road bed. From the main line, spurs were built to give access to big timber stands. Sawmill camps provided housing for the loggers and woodcutters. The camps, made of oneand two-room shot-gun houses, were located near the timber stands. Families moved into northern Mississippi and located in these little sawmill camps. There was one near the Salem Church and another set up by Aussie Wallace in the woods west of Fairview Church. The men working at the mill usually lived near Golden. E.R. Warren, who talked to Jerry Martin, when he was writing his book on Belmont recalled doing a man’s work at the age of 15. He earned $2.25 per day feeding the flooring machine. The men doing common labor were paid $2 per day. At the peak

of production, the mill sawed 60,000 board feet per day and worked two crews, a day crew and a night crew. About 350 men were required at the mill and in the woods. At one time, when hands were needed, the company advertised for sawmillers for $3.50 for a 10hour day. The mill was located in Golden where the E.R. Warren home later stood. The company store was located in the edge of the present Golden to Red Bay highway. On Feb. 5, 1920, the Golden Sawmill Company purchased the mill site from W.H. Patters. The land lay around the Illinois Central Railroad. On this acreage, the company set up the sawmill building, planer mill, edger, dry-kill, storage area for equipment, and dwelling houses for the employees as well as the company store. Unfortunately, the Depression began to take its toll. The Golden Sawmill shut down in 1933 and completely closed in 1934. The mill was then sold at auction. Parts were purchased from different places, and some went to Please see SAWMILL | 2B

Better shot decisions help prevent discouragement Letting the big one get away is something that sticks with you for a long, long time. “ Shoulda, could-a, would-a” thoughts are replayed over and over again as you think back to what could have been done differently so the outcome might have turned out better. Yeah, it’s pretty sickening all right. But, in one instance, it can be far worse. The worst case scenario is when a deer hunter takes a shot at a trophy buck, makes the hit, blood trails it until the blood runs out and comes away empty handed, not knowing the fate of the animal. And more than likely, the hunter has put in lots of time and effort for this one opportunity only to bungle it to the max. Sportsmen try to make clean and humane kills

while hunting, but if you hunt deer long enough, a misplaced shot causing the animal not to be recovered is bound to happen. It happens to the best of us. If it hasn’t, it probDavid ably will at Green some time or anothOutdoors er. I know it’s a little late in the game to be talking about shot placement considering there are only a few days are left in the season, but I wouldn’t want a similar occurrence to haunt you like it has another hunter I’ve spoken with recently. Maybe, by mentioning it, you’ll be better prepared if a down-to-the-wire last chance opportunity presents itself in the waning

days of the season. Not meaning to throw salt on his wounds, but the shot this hunter took is one that should never be taken as far as I’m concerned. I’ve heard too many stories of bucks being shot square in the brisket and never found. The shot is simply too risky because there’s too much bone to shoot through in the middle of the breast plate. A frontal shot, however, would have been okay if he had taken aim toward one side on what could be called the armpit area. The bullet would have gotten through to the “broiler room” and caused significant damage to the heart and lungs. A lot of times, a buck will fold up right there in his tracks when a shot is placed in this area. What happened was this particular hunter got in a rush. The buck came

in straight toward him fast under low light conditions and he panicked. Thinking the deer had made him and was about to bolt, he took the first available shot, figuring this would be his one and only opportunity. The key word here is “panic.” Things can sometimes get hairy quick in the deer woods. You’ve got to keep your composure with your head on straight when the moment of truth is unfolding in front of your eyes. Panic causes ill- advised shots, and ill- advised shots lead to lost deer. A broadside shot directly into the “wheel-house” is what we all wish to take. But, you know as well as I the terrain around here is nothing close to the wide open spaces of South Texas, where it seems hunters have an eternity to study the deer before

taking the shot. So, we have to make shot decisions based on we’ve got to work with. That means being able to shoot with pinpoint accuracy to hit other smaller vital areas if the need arises. Well-placed head and neck shots are always lethal, but you have little room for error. Missing just a little on a head shot can mess up the antlers or, worse, severely wound the animal. A deer can be dropped like a ton of bricks when shot directly beneath where the tail connects. Again, there’s little room for error, and the shot is more than a bit risky if your marksmanship is not up to par. The best shot to take other than a broadside shot, especially if you’re hunting in tight quarters from an elevated stand, is right down between the

shoulder blades. There will be no blood trailing with this shot. No one likes injuring and losing a deer. The discouragement lasts for a long, long time. Know your abilities, keep your head on straight and don’t panic in the heat of the moment so it will be less likely to happen to you. If you’re not confident in taking the shot, don’t take it. Most likely, the deer will still be around to hunt next year. (Daily Corinthian columnist and Alcorn County resident David Green is an avid hunter and fisherman in the Crossroads area.

Seed for food plots now available through Wildlife Mississippi BY JAMES L. CUMMINS Conservation Corner

Whether you are a photographer, a hunter or just like viewing wildlife on a sunny afternoon, anyone who has spent time overlooking a food plot will have a deep appreciation for wildlife plantings. Food plots are very attractive to wildlife enthusiasts because they can supplement daily nutritional needs at a low cost. These plots can be designed to serve as a source of food and cover. Wellmanaged food plots have the potential to not only

increase the wildlife population and their quality of health, but can also increase our opportunities for wildlife viewing. To aid landowners who would like to plant wildlife food plots, Wildlife Mississippi is continuing its popular Wildlife Habitat Seed Program. Through this program, Wildlife Mississippi will make seed available at a minimal cost. The Wildlife Habitat Seed Program is designed to provide an incentive for landowners to establish and maintain food plots

that will yield a variety of benefits to the landowner as well as to the wildlife he or she is managing. Corn, soybean and grain sorghum will be available through Wildlife Mississippi’s Spring 2013 Wildlife Habitat Seed Program. All seed has been treated and has good germination rates. Wildlife Mississippi will also be taking pre-orders for winter wheat, to be distributed in the fall. If planted properly, the various types of seed will be utilized by a variety of species of wildlife. Whitetailed deer, turkeys, bob-

white quail, mourning doves, waterfowl and many species of songbirds will benefit from the plantings of the seed that is offered. The guidelines regarding this program are simple and easy to follow. Anyone interested in obtaining seed should send a self-addressed, stamped envelope to Wildlife Mississippi with a request for an order form and planting recommendations for the seed. Wildlife Mississippi will be taking orders until March 8. This will allow

Wildlife Mississippi to place the orders in a timely manner to ensure that they will be filled in time for the planting season. Shipping and handling charges incurred by Wildlife Mississippi are included in the price of the seed. The costs will be $18 per 50 lb. bag for corn, $12 per 50 lb. bag for sorghum, $12 per 50 lb. bag for soybeans and $9 per 50 lb. bag of winter wheat. Pick up locations will be Tupelo, Greenville, Hattiesburg and Madison. For an order form and planting recommenda-

tions for this beneficial program, send a self-addressed stamped envelope to Wildlife Mississippi, PO Box 10, Stoneville, Miss. 38776. If you wish to place your order online, please visit our website at www.wildlifemiss.org. (James L. Cummins is executive director of Wildlife Mississippi, a non-profit, conservation organization founded to conserve, restore and enhance fish, wildlife and plant resources throughout Mississippi.

Godparents-to-be discover another couple in the wings DEAR ABBY: My fiance’s friend “Art” and his wife, “Julie,” just had a baby. While Julie was pregnant she asked my fiance and me to be godparents. Although we could not attend her baby shower due to a previous commitment, we contributed several gifts as well as a quilt I had made. A few weeks later, Julie posted on her social networking site that she was thankful for her baby’s godparents and named an entirely different couple – not us. I am offended. If she had discussed her reason for the change with me, I would have understood. But there was no dialogue, and to this day I have never received so

much as a thank-you for our shower presents. I would like to disAbigail tance myVan Buren self from Julie, but Dear Abby without damaging the relationship between Art and my fiance, who thinks I am overreacting and should let it go. What are your thoughts? – NOT A GODMOTHER DEAR NOT A GODMOTHER: Julie may have been upset that you and your fiance didn’t attend the baby shower, or she may have spoken too quickly when she asked you to be godparents and didn’t have the courage to

say so. Whether you can let this go only you can decide, but I do think that before you make up your mind, you should have a chat with her and clear the air – if only because your fiance and her husband are such good friends. DEAR ABBY: My husband’s younger sister, “Cindy,” is mentally ill. She has caused tremendous problems in the family. She has been arrested too many times to remember and is now on five years’ probation for injury to a child. My inlaws continue making excuses for her and are the worst enablers I have ever known. My husband once urged his dad to put Cindy into a group home or program

that will take care of her because his parents are getting up in years. They refuse because it would mean they’d have to have Cindy officially committed, and they think there is still some magic doctor out there who will fix her. Can my husband do anything as a last effort before something happens to one of his parents, or she winds up in jail? – SAD IN TEXAS DEAR SAD: Your husband should try to convince his parents to get some family counseling. It might help them accept that their daughter needs more help than they are equipped to give her. An outside, objective person should weigh in so that Cindy can get the profes-

sional help she so obviously needs. If she is physically, psychologically or emotionally abusing her parents, Adult Protective Services can step in to be sure they are protected. When your in-laws pass away, if your sister-in-law becomes a danger to herself or those around her, a family member can request a commitment and psychological evaluation. DEAR ABBY: A number of years ago, when two of my sons got married, I paid for two lovely rehearsal dinners among other wedding costs. Both marriages ended in divorce. Now they are both engaged again and planning weddings for next summer. My question is, how

many rehearsal dinners do I have to pay for? And how many other wedding expenses am I expected to pay for the second time around? – MOTHER OF GROOMS IN VIRGINIA DEAR MOTHER OF GROOMS: From now on, you do not have to pay for anything. The expenses should be paid for by your sons and their brides-to-be, especially if their fiancees have also been married previously. (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.

Who killed J.R.? ‘Dallas’ makes its return BY FRAZIER MOORE AP Television Writer

NEW YORK — J.R. Ewing wouldn’t hesitate to cheat his fellow man. He also famously cheated death. In the second-season finale of “Dallas” back in 1980, he was shot by an unknown assailant in his office and left for dead. But he recovered nicely, and the cliffhanger question that gripped the nation (Who shot J.R.?) was answered that November in an episode seen by 80 million viewers. This time, J.R. won’t get off so easy. The second season of TNT’s rebooted “Dallas” poses an even more dramatic question: Who killed J.R.? Meanwhile, viewers will have to reckon with the loss of arguably TV’s greatest villain, and bid farewell to the actor who portrayed him so indelibly and also cheated death for years. Larry Hagman, who died of cancer at 81

the day after Thanksgiving, was diagnosed in 1992 with cirrhosis of the liver from a life of heavy drinking and, three years later, when a malignant tumor was discovered on his liver, successfully underwent a transplant. This double loss would be a burden for any show to bear. “Dallas,” returning at 8 p.m. Monday, comes fully loaded. “I think viewers want closure,” said Linda Gray, who plays J.R.’s long-suffering ex-wife, Sue Ellen. “They want to mourn Larry Hagman and J.R. Ewing. They want to know they can grieve the fact he won’t be around.” But all that comes later. With its two-hour season premiere, “Dallas” carries on in familiar fashion, with the expected twotiming, squabbles, a kidnapping revealed, a stolen identity and assorted other mischief. And never fear: J.R., though visibly frail, con-

tinues his reign as a scheming oilman and rascally Ewing patriarch. “I came over to deliver some muffins to the pretty little secretaries,” he announces on making an unannounced visit to Ewing Energies headquarters before he laments, “Who could have guessed so many would turn out to be MEN? Where’s the sport in THAT?” In another scene, J.R. shares sly counsel with his son, John Ross, on double-crossing other members of the family: “Love, hate, jealousy: Mix ‘em up and they make a mean martini. And when we take over Ewing Energies, you’ll slake your thirst — with a twist!” The new “Dallas,” which debuted last June, is stocked with a troupe of young regulars (including Josh Henderson, who plays John Ross), as well as veterans of the original CBS series, notably Gray and Patrick Duffy

as J.R.’s ever-upright brother, Bobby. J.R. will appear in a minimum of five or as many as seven of the season’s episodes. (It remains to be seen how footage of Hagman might be adapted to depict J.R.’s murder.) After that, can “Dallas” survive the dual deaths of its central character and legendary star? “Larry being gone doesn’t eliminate the influence of the character of J.R.,” Duffy pointed out. Who knows what land mines J.R. will have left behind? “We can find business deals he did or schemes he started that now are coming home to roost, and they can turn up for years to come.” “Whatever will happen on the show, we will be talking about J.R. Ewing and he will have done things that have a ripple effect,” Gray agreed. “He will always be there.” “There’s a lot of driving forces on the show — not

just J.R.,” added “Dallas” executive producer Cynthia Cidre, who, interviewed by phone a couple of weeks ago, was parked outside a posh Dallas social club where the wake for J.R. was about to be filmed. She said this season she tried to use Hagman sparingly. “He was the most delightful man and a total professional,” she said, “but he wasn’t well and we didn’t want to overtax him.” “We didn’t have a Plan B, on purpose,” said Cidre. “We just knew that we had Larry, so let’s use him, let’s enjoy him, and if something happens, we’ll scramble and fix it. I had great faith in the writers’ room. We knew the day might come and what we would do then: Figure it out.” That day came in late November when she got a call from Duffy. “He told me, ‘Larry’s in the hospi-

tal and it isn’t good. He’s saying goodbye.’ In 24 hours we had fixed one of the scripts. We had two more scripts that had to be adjusted, and then this episode we’re shooting now, the Goodbye Episode.” Roughly 85 percent of the season’s story line remains intact, she said, supplemented by the death of J.R. and the “Who Killed J.R.?” mystery surrounding it. The mystery, she said, will continue through episode 15, “with a giant, delightful, delicious climax in the season finale.” To get there, shooting continues until April on the Dallas set, where, even two months after Hagman’s passing, “I’m lonely because my best friend isn’t there to play with,” Duffy said. “I was with him from 1978 until his final hours in the hospital. But I have no regrets. Every day I think of him and smile.”

Netflix shuffles the TV deck with exclusive ‘House of Cards’ BY JAKE COYLE AP Entertainment Writer

NEW YORK — In Netflix’s bid for a flagship original drama of its own — a “Sopranos” to its HBO — the subscription streaming service is presenting a high-class adaptation of a British political thriller offered up all at once, with its first season immediately ready for TV-viewing gluttony. The show, “House of Cards,” is a bold attempt to remake the television landscape with the kind of prestige project cable channels like HBO, AMC and Showtime have used to define themselves. But

“House of Cards,” produced by David Fincher and starring Kevin Spacey, won’t be on the dial of that refuge of quality dramas — cable television — but streamed online. “It’s sort of like we’re the new television series that isn’t on television,” says Spacey. On Feb. 1, all 13 hours of “House of Cards” will premiere on Netflix, a potentially landmark event that could herald the transition of television away from pricey cable bundles and toward the Internet — a process well under way at YouTube, Hulu, Yahoo and others, but not

yet tested to the degree of “House of Cards.” The show is no lowbudget Web series, but an HBO-style production for which Netflix reportedly paid in the neighborhood of $100 million for two seasons. “When we got into original programming, I wanted it to be loud and deliberate,” says Ted Sarandos, head of content at Netflix, who only will say the cost was in the “high end” for a TV show. “I wanted consumers to know that we were doing it and I wanted the industry to know that we were doing it so we could

Horoscopes Sunday, January 27, 2013 BY HOLIDAY MATHIS Creators Syndicate

The astral influences that come with this Leo moon might dampen its spirits a bit. So if you feel like an unsatisfied child even though you have a friend and a room full of toys to explore, consider this: Happiness is not a place. You can’t get there. You can only decide that you are there. ARIES (March 21-April 19). Can your joy run out, or is it an infinitely renewable resource? You could ask the same question of love. The answer: When you subtract all resistance, the feelings will flow endlessly. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It won’t be enough for you to be better than average at what you do. Excelling beyond your peers also brings limited rewards. You’ll be happiest when you do what it takes to advance toward mastery. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). In some aspects of relationships, you are still a beginner. You’ll learn through practice. Each new interaction has something to teach you as long as you don’t assume you already know everything. CANCER (June 22-July 22). In spite of what self-help gurus profess, there is much valuable knowledge and inspiration to be gained by watching television, as long as you do it mindfully. With the remote in hand, keep your inner critic awake. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your curiosity will be stimulated by areas of interest just outside of your current realm. It only takes one phone call or introduction to break into an adjacent circle and make new friends there.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Shyness is a mask for fear of public opinion. One way to get around it is to agree internally to be disliked. Better to be disliked for expressing what’s really on your mind than to be liked for being someone you’re not. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ve built your life with certain people, but you’re not exactly like them. It’s a day to celebrate your differences. It’s wonderful to be part of a tribe and still be accepted as an individual. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). While it’s temporarily wonderful to avoid criticism and impress others with your abilities, it has nothing to do with long-term satisfaction. Concern yourself instead with what feels comfortable and right. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). A project gets much simpler once you abandon the pretense of being perfect. It’s unnecessary, not to mention impossible. You’ll be doing yourself a huge favor by simply forgetting about perfection and going for fun. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Maybe you want things the way they were, but no matter how hard you try, there’s really no going back. You’re smarter now. You’ll use the past to build in a new direction. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). As the darling of the planets these days, you’ll often enjoy the vibrant feeling of your mind, body and spirit synching perfectly to help you reach new heights of accomplishment. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll have a strong sense of what really matters. It may seem as though this is no big deal, but indeed, it’s a rare and fine quality, as there are many around with trifling concerns.

attract more interesting projects. Doing it in some half way, some small thing, it wasn’t going to get us there.” The revered British original aired in three seasons from 1990 to 1996 and was adapted from the books by Michael Dobbs, a notable politician and adviser to Margaret Thatcher. It starred Ian Richardson as a scheming, manipulating politician who shared his power-hungry strategies directly into the camera. With a darkly comic antihero as protagonist, it was a forerunner to characters like Walter

White of “Breaking Bad” and Dexter Morgan of “Dexter.” Independent studio Media Rights Capital, a producer of films like “Ted” and “Babel,” purchased the rights to “House of Cards” and paired Fincher with the project, along with Beau Willimon, the Oscarnominated screenwriter of another political drama, “The Ides of March.” When MRC approached different networks (HBO, Showtime and others), it reached out to Netflix about adding the show to its digital library following a run on TV. But

Netflix wanted “House of Cards” as a statement show to launch a crop of original programming. A general spirit of rookie experimentation pervades “House of Cards,” the first TV show for Fincher, the director of “Fight Club” and “The Social Network.” “I walk into this as a total neophyte. I don’t watch much TV,” says Fincher, who directed the first two hours and has overseen the whole series. “What was interesting to me was the notion of having a relationship with an audience that was longer than two hours.”
