Slugburger meat delivery lands business on ‘Burger Land’ segment BY STEVE BEAVERS

Mark Suitor wasn't expecting to be filmed as he made his normal Wednesday rounds for Suitor's Food Service. The company vice president was dropping off an order at Phillips Grocery in Holly Springs when he noticed numerous cameras in the parking lot. “I thought they were making a movie,� said Suitor. “They had cameras everywhere.� All the cameras were part of the Travel Channel's new original series “Burger Land� that is set to premiere April 15 at 9

p.m. In the series, host George Motz travels the country showing the different style of burgers. “Once they told me was what was going on, I told them I might have something they were interested in,� said Suitor. Suitor pulled out a box of the company's slugburger meat and patties for the film crew to check out. “They had heard of dough and cereal burgers, but never heard them called slugburgers,� added Suitor's, whose business is based in Rienzi. The crew preceded to film Suitor for about 30 minutes,

pulling up in his truck and unloading at Phillips Grocery. He was also interviewed for the segment that will be called “Burger Land Mississippi.� Motz, a self-proclaimed hamburger expert, takes viewers on a taste-testing adventure across America, exploring the nation’s most iconic and historic burger joints to reveal what goes into making these burgers the best in the land, according to the Travel Channel website. Motz tours a different region each week, focusing on three established burger spots and Please see SLUGBURGER | 3A

Fielding said residents of the area are concerned about service possibly being reduced. “There needs to be as many people as possible to come to the meeting and show support for the community so we can at least keep the post office open parttime,� she said. The postal service says it is considering reducing the Glen office’s window service hours to four hours weekdays. Saturday hours would not change. Weekday hours would decrease by two and three-quarter hours. The current hours are 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 1:45 p.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays and 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. on Saturdays. Please see FATE | 3A

Mayor forms youth council advisory board BY BOBBY J. SMITH

Members of the Mayor’s Youth Council Advisory Board met Thursday to determine what role the new council will play in the community. “We decided we really want them to have a knowledge of city government, how the city and its government works,� said Youth Council Coordinator Emily McGrath. “Also, we want them to determine what they’d like to see for themselves.� The Mayor’s Youth Council will be a group of 21 Corinth High School students who meets with the Corinth mayor each month in an effort to develop individual leadership skills to strengthen their communities through vol-

unteer service and increased communication with municipal leaders. Prospective members applied to join the council over the last few weeks. Those picked to be part of the council will be notified at school on March 18, following spring break. The first meeting of the council is set for March 21. McGrath said the Mayor’s Youth Council will seek to work closely with the Mississippi Municipal League. “They have special training and conferences for these youth to help them be better leaders and more community-oriented. We hope to get plugged in to those,� she said. McGrath said Mayor TomPlease see YOUTH | 2A

my Irwin has been a big supporter of the council since the planning stage begun. “When we first approached the mayor, he was very excited,” McGrath said. “He’s been in contact with other mayors and has spoken to them about their youth committees.” The group is seeking sponsors, not only monetarily, but also to help the council find ways to become more part of the community.

Advisor board members hope the Mayor’s Youth Council will become a long-term project they will continue to improve upon. “I want it to be something the kids look forward to when they get to high school, to apply to the Mayor’s Youth Council,” said McGrath. Members of the Mayor’s Youth Council Advisory Board are: Russ Elam, Markenna Edgeston, Terry Cartwright, Kim Ratliff, Andrea Rose, Emily McGrath and Jackie Holt.

Today in History Today is Sunday, March 10, the 69th day of 2013. There are 296 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History On March 10, 1913, former slave, abolitionist and Underground Railroad “conductor” Harriet Tubman died in Auburn, N.Y.; she was in her 90s.

On this date In 1876, Alexander Graham Bell’s assistant, Thomas Watson, heard Bell say over his experimental telephone: “Mr. Watson — come here — I want to see you.” In 1880, the Salvation Army arrived in the United States from England. In 1969, James Earl Ray pleaded guilty in Memphis, Tenn., to assassinating civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. (Ray later repudiated that plea, maintaining his innocence until his death.) In 1973, the Pink Floyd album “The Dark Side of the Moon” was first released in the U.S. by Capitol Records (the British release came nearly two weeks later). In 1988, Pop singer Andy Gibb died in Oxford, England, of heart inflammation five days after turning 30.

ues today from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. A whole galaxy of old time items are for sale at the relic show — from bottles to boots and bayonets. One will find muskets, muzzleloaders, Colt revolvers, Bowie knives, old currency, antique books, one-of-a-kind weapons, clothing, photos, display cases, flags, bullets and even a bombsight from a Japanese World War II dive bomber. For area relic hunters like Guntown’s Larry Hutcheson, the event is a time to come together with others who have caught the relic hunting bug. “It’s a good time,” said Hutcheson. “When I see all this stuff it makes me lust after it, thinking about why I can’t find none of it. And it’s all about the camaraderie. I like to come up here and see what everybody else has found and hear their stories. ” The stories are a big part of relic hunting, Hutcheson said. “The best stories are in coon hunting, relic hunting and fishing,” he said. “You hear more lies about those three things than anything else. Even when they’re telling the truth, sometimes it sounds like lies.” The show also hails the return of a relic with special significance to the Battle of Corinth — the sword that belonged to Col. William P. Rogers, the Confederate hero killed in the climactic charge on Battery Robinett and namesake of the local Sons of Confederate Veterans camp that produces the relic show each year. Rogers’ sword traveled to Corinth for the second straight year in the company of its new owner, Missouri-based

collector Allen Wandling. Wandling brought another item of interest to Corinth this year -- a previously unknown photograph taken in the aftermath of the carnage at Battery Robinett. Wandling said he hopes one day to be able to loan the sword to the Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center, as he believes the sword belongs in Corinth, where it is most appreciated. “I want to put the sword on loan here, but on my own terms,” said Wandling. “It’s got to be at the Interpretive Center if it comes back. The people are so nice here, and it belongs here.” The collector also has family connections to the Battle of Corinth. Two of his ancestors fought in an Ohio unit and very likely took some shots at the man whose sword he now owns, he said. This year, Wandling brought his son to Corinth to see the place where their ancestors fought. “He’s really excited to see where his family was,” Wandling said. “Later today, when everything calms down, we’re going to go out to the battlefield where he can learn about what happened.” As of Saturday, the event’s sponsors were already calling the fourth annual Corinth Civil War Relic & Militaria Show and Sale a success. “It’s been such a success that we’ve had to put dealers outside on the porch,” said Buddy Ellis, event coordinator, avid relic hunter and longtime member of the Col. Rogers SCV camp. “It’s the biggest event we’ve ever had.” Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for children under 13. (For more information go to or call Larry McDaniel at 415-5663 or Buddy Ellis at 665-1419.)


Unless the survey finds that at least 60 percent of residents are interest in a discontinuance study for the Glen Post Office and possibly opening a contractor-operated retail unit, the postal service intends to go

to the four-hour schedule. USPS will make a final decision after the public meeting based on all of the community input, according to the information distributed to residents. The Postal Service Post Plan affects many of the nation’s smallest post offices.

Two elephants remain: Education and Medicaid BY CLAYTON STANLEY Columnist

Several elephants remain in the room, or state house. Among them are Education and Medicaid. Not surprisingly, these two represent the lion’s share of the state’s budget. Earlier in the year many began to refer to this legislative session as the “education session” due to the number of bills proposing sweeping changes to the way Mississippi educates its young. Education came back into the spotlight this week after a meeting of the Senate Education Committee. Tuesday the committee met to consider education bills previously passed by the House. While several bills were addressed, the one that received the most attention was HB 890, the governor’s “Mississippi Education Works” bill. This bill originally focused on literacy performance measures and a pilot program for establishing performance based teacher pay. This is the bill mentioned in a previous column that was amended to include a $5,000 teacher pay raise. The committee passed HB 890 on Tuesday, but the bill number was the only thing in common with the bill that came over from the House. The committee inserted a “strikeall” amendment that removed all of the House language and inserted the Senate’s ideas on not only literacy programs and merit pay, but also compulsory attendance, abolishing failing schools and the real lightening rod – charter schools. Notably absent from this new omnibus education bill – the $5,000 teacher pay raise. The Senate is likely to pass this bill next week. The real test comes later when the House and Senate take this and other education bills to conference, and will be forced to agree on a compromise or let the legislation die. Mississippi’s Medicaid program is still set to expire at midnight on June 30. Just as no one believes this will actually happen, no one yet knows exactly how the crisis will be averted. The real issue is over whether or not Mississippi should expand Medicaid in accordance with Obamacare. Governor Bryant and some legislative Republicans on one side disagree with Democrats over whether or not Mississippi Medicaid should be expanded by 300,000 from the current 640,000. (Mississippi’s population is approximately 3 million.) Democrats argue that we cannot afford to turn down three years of “free money” from the federal government to provide care for these Mississippians. They say this money would not only provide healthcare, but would also create jobs and tax revenue as it moves through the economy. The governor argues that we cannot afford to be left with an unfunded mandate of billions of dollars after the three-year government subsidy is scaled back. The reality is that both sides are probably right. Lawmakers have a long way to go before they will have this matter resolved, but in the spirit of compromise, a group of Democrats sent a letter to the governor suggesting Medicaid expansion be conditioned on the federal government eliminating another type of federal payment to hospitals known as the “disproportionate share.” Whether it’s this solution or another one, lawmakers must find a compromise. The elimination of Medicaid would be catastrophic to health care recipients and providers alike. On a lighter more practical note, each year thousands of bills are offered that would add to government bureaucracy. Occasionally there are a few that have an immediate impact of convenience on the lives of Mississippians. One such bill that many might find helpful is a new law that allows drivers to show proof of auto insurance on their smart phone instead of the card that is always lost somewhere in our glove compartment. For those of us who live tethered to our phones, this should come in very handy. (Clayton Stanley lives in Corinth and is a lobbyist in Mississippi and Tennessee for Capitol Resources, LLC.

Prayer for today Faithful God, help us to learn to lean on you, especially when life feels meaningless. Calm our troubled minds with your peace. Amen.

A verse to share That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. — Romans 10:9

Upward economic mobility is possible in America Most people are not even surprised any more when they hear about someone who came here from Korea or Vietnam with very little money, and very little knowledge of English, who nevertheless persevered and rose in American society. Nor are we surprised when their children excel in school and go on to professional careers. Yet, in utter disregard of such plain facts, so-called “social scientists” do studies which conclude that America is no longer a land of opportunity, and that upward mobility is a “myth.” Even when these studies have lots of numbers in tables and equations that mimic the appearance of science, too often their conclusions depend on wholly arbitrary assumptions. Even people regarded as serious academic scholars often measure social mobility by how many people from families in the lower part of the income distribution end up in higher income brackets. But social mobility — the opportunity to move up — cannot be measured solely by how much movement takes place. Opportunity is just one factor in economic advancement. How well a given individual or group takes advantage of existing opportunities is another. Only by implicitly (and ar-

bitrarily) assuming that a failure to rise must be due to society’s barriers can we say Thomas that AmeriSowell can society no longer has Columnist opportunity for upward social mobility. The very same attitudes and behavior that landed a father in a lower income bracket can land the son in that same bracket. But someone with a different set of attitudes and behavior may rise dramatically in the same society. Sometimes even a member of the same family may rise while a sibling stagnates or falls by the wayside. Ironically, many of the very people who are promoting the idea that the “unfairness” of American society is the reason why some individuals and groups are not advancing are themselves a big part of the reason for the stagnation that occurs. The welfare state promoted by those who insist that it is society that is keeping some people down makes it unnecessary for many low-income people to exert themselves — and therefore makes it unnecessary for them to develop their own potential to the fullest.

The multiculturalist dogma that says one culture is just as good as another paints people into the cultural corner where they happened to have been born, even if other cultures around them have features that offer better prospects of rising. Just speaking standard English in an Englishspeaking country can improve the odds of rising. But multiculturalists’ celebration of foreign languages or ethnic dialects, and of counterproductive cultural patterns exemplified by such things as gangsta rap, can promote the very social stagnation that they blame on “society.” Meanwhile, Asian immigrants or refugees who arrive here are not handicapped or distracted by a counterproductive social vision full of envy, resentment and paranoia, and so can rise in the very same society where opportunity is said to be absent. Those “social scientists,” journalists and others who are committed to the theory that social barriers keep people down often cite statistics showing that the top income brackets receive a disproportionate and growing share of the country’s income. But the very opposite conclusion arises in studies that follow actual flesh-andblood individuals over time,

most of whom move up across the various income brackets with the passing years. Most working Americans who were initially in the bottom 20 percent of income-earners, rise out of that bottom 20 percent. More of them end up in the top 20 percent than remain in the bottom 20 percent. People who were initially in the bottom 20 percent in income have had the highest rate of increase in their incomes, while those who were initially in the top 20 percent have had the lowest. This is the direct opposite of the pattern found when following income brackets over time, rather than following individual people. Most of the media publicize what is happening to the statistical brackets — especially that “top one percent” — rather than what is happening to individual people. We should be concerned with the economic fate of flesh-and-blood human beings, not waxing indignant over the fate of abstract statistical brackets. Unless, of course, we are hustling for an expansion of the welfare state.

Hugo Chavez cheered from a safe distance Let us pause and reflect. The left’s favorite self-aggrandizing thug has shed this mortal coil. Hugo Chavez, R.I.P. All the country’s least-reflective and most-reflexive ideologues of the left immediately issued warm farewells — Sean Penn, Michael Moore, Oliver Stone and, of course, the nation’s 39th president, Jimmy Carter. Carter praised Chavez for his commitment “to bring profound changes to his country,” which, by installing himself as the effective president for life, he certainly did. Carter allowed that he did not agree “with all of the methods followed by his government.” New York Rep. Jose Serrano rushed to praise Chavez: “He understood democracy and basic human desires for a dignified life.” As a technical matter, Serrano is right: Chavez understood democracy exceedingly well, if by that you mean he understood how to exploit its forms while hollowing out its institutions to entrench himself in power in perpetuity. He displaced a corrupt, conscienceless oligarchy when he took power in

1999 with his own corrupt, conscienceless rule. In a recent report, Human Rights Watch Rich detailed how Lowery “the accumulation of National Review power in the executive and the erosion of human rights protections have allowed the Chavez government to intimidate, censor, and prosecute critics and perceived opponents.” Fidel Castro was his mentor, and he propped up the Castro regime with Venezuela’s ample oil. He praised every heinous dictator around the planet as a brother-in-arms. He was hell on the plutocrats, and also on the Jews. All of this should make Chavez an unsympathetic figure for everyone in America. Not so, sadly. For some, all is forgiven if you hate the rich with a whitehot passion and talk the language of populist redistribution, while wrapping your program in a bow of rancid anti-Americanism. Then, every allowance will be made for your thuggery.

Everyone will obsess about your colorful and charming personality. And praise you when you’re gone. Chavez’s American admirers apparently consider his program as being SCHIP with teeth. They must envy that while we endlessly debate ending “tax breaks for oil companies,” Chavez got to run a state-owned oil company and nationalize other industries besides. They must rue that someone here in the U.S. who speaks the truth about the noxiousness of American power merely gets a tenuretrack position, while down in Venezuela he gets to run a country by decree. During Chavez’s time in office — blessed by high oil prices — poverty fell in Venezuela. But it fell in other countries in the region as well, according to The Economist, thanks to a commodity boom. Chavez left his country crime-ridden, wracked by inflation and beset by a shortage of goods. The night of his death, Rachel Maddow had Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson on her program to discuss him. She asked Robinson in a voice heavy

with sarcasm whether Hugo Chavez was really “the monster” he was made out to be. Robinson explained that Chavez bonded with the poor and had lots of popular support. Maddow gently prodded Robinson to address criticisms of Chavez for not advancing freedom. Unable to muster any of the denunciatory venom he lavishes on Republicans once or twice a week, Robinson issued forth with a strangely tortured construction: “He was not what we would call a lover of democracy as we would like to see it practiced.” Robinson noted that Chavez gerrymandered electoral districts, but, hey, “that happens elsewhere as well.” All in all, he was “a man of contradictions.” You know, like Disraeli or Gladstone. Goodbye, Hugo Chavez. All your friends who got to admire your authoritarian savvy and gross economic mismanagement from a safe distance will miss you very much.

For Biden chief of staff Film incentives can mean big Bruce Reed, less is more gains for Mississippi towns BY JOSH LEDERMAN Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Understated. Self-effacing. Nonthreatening. Refreshingly old-fashioned. Don’t let these cool descriptors from friends and colleagues fool you: As the vice president’s chief of staff, Bruce Reed plays Mr. Fix-It, guiding Joe Biden’s role as a driving force behind the Obama administration’s agenda. With the White House wrestling Congress over gun control and taxand-spending priorities, Reed’s deep ties to the Oval Office and reputation for getting along with both parties make him a central character in some of Washington’s biggest political battles. Those who know Reed say his low-key style and consensus-oriented approach to deal-making are the keys to how he’s managed time and again to bridge an ever-widening gap between Democrats and Republicans — even when it rankles partisan Democrats who see concessions to the GOP as selling out. “It gets characterized from an ideological perspective, meaning centrist vs. leftist. Bruce would probably see it more as, ‘Are you a reformer and willing to make changes to accomplish the same goals?”’ said Chicago mayor and former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, who co-wrote a policy book with Reed after they served together in the Clinton administration. It’s a trait that meshes well with the pragmatic, do-whatyou-can approach to governing of President Barack Obama’s administration. Reed’s former and current colleagues say his method is also in sync with Biden’s freewheeling but driven personality. Once considered a potential liability to Obama, Biden has evolved into a serious heavy hitter whose broad portfolio of issues is never far removed from the president’s top priorities. It was Biden, not Obama, who finally cut the New Year’s deal with the Senate that averted the socalled fiscal cliff. White House officials credit Reed, who turns 53 this month, with steering Biden away from political pitfalls, helping him gauge which battles to fight and just how far to push. But Reed’s influence extends far beyond the vice president’s quarters and deep into the West Wing. He’s considered a full-fledged member of the economic team, joining the treasury secretary and others when the National Economic Council meets. Last year, he was tapped by Obama’s thenchief of staff, Bill Daley, to help coordinate the State of the Union address. When Biden negotiates with Republicans in Congress, Reed is often the only other person on the phone. And when Obama’s most senior advisers meet every morning at 7:40 to set the day’s agenda, Reed is there. These mornings, it’s Reed who keeps Obama’s team up to date on one of the administration’s top priorities: gun control. When the president tasked Biden with crafting a series of proposals to respond to a scourge of mass shootings, the role of chief architect fell to Reed, who cut

his teeth on gun issues as Clinton’s domestic policy adviser. The ensuing proposal includes broadly supported measures like universal background checks, but also a controversial ban on assault weapons. It quickly became clear the ban would face near-insurmountable obstacles in Congress. That led many to question whether the White House proposed the ban to placate those demanding tough action, but was ready to drop it if necessary to strike a deal. A Senate panel plans to vote on the ban Tuesday, though it has virtually no chance of passing the full Senate. While Biden and Obama say the ban deserves a vote, both have avoided describing it as a must-have. “Nobody needed to tell me. I saw Bruce’s fingerprints all over it,” said former Clinton adviser William Galston, who met Reed in the late 1980s working on Al Gore’s first presidential campaign. “Bruce is not afraid of the politics of aspiration, but he has a healthy awareness of the distinction between the best and the attainable. He will not counsel people to fall on their sword.” So far, there have been few outcries from the left over the prospect that the White House will abandon the assault-weapons ban — perhaps because even many Democrats are on the fence and fear being cast as infringing on lawful gun ownership. On other issues where Reed has sought consensus with Republicans, the backlash has sometimes been quite public. Credited with coining the phrase “end welfare as we know it,” Reed bore the wrath of liberals when he helped Clinton in 1996 secure a welfare overhaul — negotiated with Republicans — that ended some guarantees for poor Americans. A handful of Clinton officials resigned in protest. Still, even those on the losing end of policy disagreements say Reed somehow manages to keep it from getting personal. Peter Edelman, one of the officials who resigned, said even when consensus proved elusive, Reed treated his adversaries with respect. “In all the years I worked with him, I only saw him lose his temper once at me,” said Paul Weinstein, an economist who has worked for Reed in various roles since the 1980s. The rare outburst came in 1992, near the end of Clinton’s campaign, when Weinstein told Reed he needed to step away from the campaign to finish his Ph.D. “Bruce just lost it on me,” Weinstein said. “When I tell people I saw him lose his temper, they practically fall over backwards because they don’t believe it.” Democratic strategist

Kiki McLean, who has known Reed for more than two decades, said his sense of humor is striking considering his unobtrusive manner. “Bruce is not the guy who will stand on the table and sing, but he is the guy who will lean over and whisper something so you have to hold your sides to keep from bursting out laughing,” she said. Raised in Coeur d’Alene, a small Idaho town near the Washington state border, Reed followed his mother, Mary Lou Reed, a Democrat and former Idaho state senator, into politics. He moved east for school, studying English at Princeton University before becoming a Rhodes Scholar and earning a master’s degree at Oxford University. An avid baseball fan, Reed proposed to his wife, attorney Bonnie LePard, at a Pittsburgh Pirates game; they have two children. He wrote speeches for then-Sen. Al Gore, DTenn., starting in 1985, then joined the Democratic Leadership Council, a now-defunct group that sought to push the Democratic Party toward the political center. He served for all eight years in the Clinton White House, where he was often the public face of the administration’s policies on education, guns and welfare reform. Later, he ran the Simpson-Bowles commission, tasked with forging a bipartisan deficit-reduction deal. That deal never made it to a vote in Congress, but Reed impressed lawmakers from both parties. Republican Sen. Mike Crapo of Idaho, a vocal critic of Obama, recalled how Reed would flesh out a lawmaker’s idea, providing the analysis and figures needed to fully evaluate it. “It happened again and again,” Crapo said. “Even if it wasn’t necessarily something he would support from his personal political perspective, he was very focused on helping the individual member.” It’s been just over two years since Biden tapped Reed to be his chief of staff, and his cautious and meticulous manner often serves as a counterPlease see REED | 6A

receive money directly from the hands of the cast and crew benefited from the sudden influx of cash, symbolized by the ubiquity of the $50 bills used to pay per diems. “There was just money floating around,” said Cale Ainsworth, owner of Ainsworth Sign Co. “If it hadn’t been for the movie, 2010 was not going to be a banner year.” Ainsworth said he made around 100 signs for the movie, including several that continue to hang in the Fondren neighborhood of Jackson, where a few of the film’s scenes were shot. Over the course of the shoot, Crump estimates Greenwood reaped $13 million of the film’s $25 million budget. The city still gets many visitors who take tours of the locations and enroll in “The Help” themed cooking classes at the Viking Cooking School. At the end of the production, the Economic Development Council raised $30,000 from the cast and crew to help the historically black neighborhood of Baptist Town, where the scenes featuring the homes of the maids were filmed. An additional $150,000 was raised for the cause during a premiere in Madison, Miss, which will go toward the construction of a new community center. Baptist Town remains the impoverished neighborhood it appears to be on film. The house that served as the main character Abilene’s home is boarded over and covered with graffiti. Crump said that if states look at the economic impact of a film on a macro-level, they may be hard-pressed to find a bump. It’s the local story that’s evident. The filmmakers behind “The Help” aren’t alone in their appreciation of Mississippi’s potential. Film festivals are mushrooming around the state, and in recent years the incentives have drawn a number of films with smaller but substantial budgets, like James Franco’s adaptation of “As I Lay Dying,” based on the book by William Faulkner. Director Wes Benton recently committed to shooting three films here in the next two years. Director

employee is a veteran. A production must spend at least $50,000 in base investment or payroll to qualify. The efficacy of the incentives is contested. Studies pile up on the desk of Mississippi Film Office Director Ward Emling. Some argue that the rewards of incentives are fickle and fleeting, the money disappearing as soon as a production leaves town. Others, like a 2012 report by accounting firm Ernst & Young, argue that the incentives must be studied over a period of many years, looking at the indirect ways films benefit communities through tourism and job creation. “I would think that, just like any industry, you have to take the long view,” Emling said. “The Help,” the biggest-budget film to shoot in Mississippi since incentive programs came en vogue, was shot in Greenwood thanks largely to the efforts of a few determined natives. Director Tate Taylor and producer Brunson Green are both Mississippians, as is author Kathryn Stockett. Bill Crump, the chair of Greenwood’s economic development nonprofit, raised $50,000 to lure the film to town. That money paled in comparison to the savings in Louisiana, but it was a good-faith gesture that gave the city a boost. Emling and Taylor hope that by raising the salary reimbursement cap from $1 million to $5 million, Mississippi would attract larger films, since Hollywood stars earn bigger paychecks. “Mississippi has a great chance to do something with this legislation,” said Taylor, “so people don’t have to struggle the way I did.” The impact of “The Help” is clear in Greenwood. The cast and crew ate daily at local restaurants, including the Delta Bistro, where sales nearly doubled. They stayed in hotels like the Alluvian, and frequented local bars and grocery stores. They bought set supplies at antique shops and home improvement stores. They also employed local people for jobs in catering, sign-making and as extras. Even those who didn’t

BY LAURA TILLMAN Associated Press

GREENWOOD — In 2009, a group of filmmakers descended on Greenwood, looking for potential locations for their adaptation of the bestselling novel “The Help.” As they drove through the Mississippi town, they watched the homes and haunts of the book’s characters spring up before them. Thanks to the determination of the filmmakers, the project was eventually filmed in the Delta town. But first, Mississippi had to beat out neighboring Louisiana for the business. That state has one of the country’s most aggressive film incentive programs, an approach that’s spawned a deep infrastructure of production crews, equipment suppliers, studios and actors. Studio films cost millions to make and create a tizzy of purchases, from construction supplies to caterers to hotel rooms. It’s no wonder states around the country use tax incentives to tempt studios, hoping the influx of cash will ultimately reward their investment. Mississippi has slowly worked to expand its incentives over the past decade. Now, a new bill would allow the state to offer more money to individual productions and give back more cash for salaries. Supporters hope the legislation will ultimately lure bigger-budget films to the state and make it more competitive with Louisiana and other states that offer incentives. Mississippi offers up to $20 million in cash rebates to motion picture productions per year, a maximum that would remain the same under the new bill. But rebates toward salaries would be raised from $1 million to $5 million, and the total rebate for a production would be raised from $8 million to $10 million. The rebates are calculated as a percentage of production costs, including the salaries of production staff. The salaries of Mississippi residents are eligible for a 30 percent rebate, while non-residents are eligible for a 25 percent rebate. The new bill would give back an additional 5 percent if the

“Mississippi’s kids play a huge role in helping to reduce youth tobacco use in our state,” said Roy Hart, director of the Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) Office of Tobacco Control. “The kids participating in Kick Butts Day 2013 are sending two very important messages: they want to raise awareness of the problem of tobacco use in their com-

munity and they want to urge elected leaders to do more to protect them from tobacco.” Through MSDH’s local tobacco-free coalitions, young advocates take part in a variety of tobacco prevention activities throughout the school year, including working with elected leaders to develop policies that reduce youth tobacco use and exposure to sec-

ondhand smoke, and educating their peers about the risks of tobacco use. (For more information about Kick Butts Day events in Alcorn County or for tobacco cessation information, contact MS TOBACCO FREE COALITION at 662.284.8317, visit or follow us on Facebook at MSTobaccoFree.)

Daniel Zirilli, who completed the forthcoming “Blunt Force” last year, plans to return to shoot in Mississippi again. “In New Orleans, people are kind of sick of film production. They tend to jack the prices up because they can. I want to pay a fair price for what I get,” Zirilli said. Zirilli and other filmmakers marveled at the freshness of Mississippi’s locations. Directors accustomed to shooting in California and New Or-

leans are excited to find locations that have never been shot before. This is especially evident in “The Help,” where the inimitable landscape and characters’ homes take center stage. Emling said none of this would be possible without the incentives. Even the producers of “The Help,” who were incredibly committed to filming in Mississippi, said they would not have shot the movie here without the state’s incentive program. “Not a chance,” Taylor said.


weight to the more verbose and unrehearsed Biden. In that short time, Biden has played a leading role in winding down the war in Iraq, negotiating a fiscal-cliff deal with Senate Republicans, nudging Obama toward an embrace of gay marriage and spearheading Obama’s push on gun control.

Reed declined to be interviewed for this story. But Galston, the former Clinton adviser, said Reed values clarity of expression above almost all else. “He edits documents the way a sculptor works with a block of marble: by subtraction,” said Galston. “You get rid of what you don’t want, and what’s left is what you have in mind.”

NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; At barbecue joints, coffee counters and bottle-service nightclubs, a coming clampdown on big, sugary soft drinks is beginning to take shape on tables and menus in a city that thrives on eating and going out. Some restaurants are ordering smaller glasses. Dunkinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Donuts shops are telling customers theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to sweeten and flavor their own coffee. Coca-Cola has printed posters explaining the new rules, and a bowling lounge is squeezing carrot and beet juice as a potential substitute for pitchers of soda at family parties â&#x20AC;&#x201D; all in preparation for the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first limit on the size of sugarladen beverages, set to take effect Tuesday. Some businesses are holding off, hoping a court challenge nixes or at least delays the restriction. But many are getting ready for tasks including reprinting menus and changing movie theatersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; supersized sodaand-popcorn deals. At Brother Jimmyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s BBQ, customers still will be able to order margaritas by the pitcher, cocktails in jumbo Mason jars and heaping plates of ribs. But theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll no longer get 24-ounce tumblers of soda, since the new rule bars selling non-diet cola in cups, bottles or pitchers bigger than 16 ounces. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everything we do is big, so serving it in a quaint little 16-ounce soda cups is going to look kind of odd,â&#x20AC;? owner Josh Lebowitz said. Nonetheless, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ordered 1,000 of them for the North Carolina-themed restaurantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s five Manhattan locations, rather than take on a fight that carries the threat of $200 fines. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As long as they keep allowing us to serve beer in glasses larger than 16 ounces, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be OK,â&#x20AC;? Lebowitz reasoned. Beer drinkers can breathe easy: The restriction doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t apply to alcoholic beverages, among other exemptions for various reasons. But it does cover such beverages as energy drinks and sweetened fruit smoothies. City officials say itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pioneering, practical step to staunch an obesity rate that has risen from 18 to 24 percent in a decade among adult

Obama poised to pick Perez for Labor Associated Press

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Two people familiar with the White House deliberations say President Barack Obama is poised to select Justice Department official Thomas Perez as the next labor secretary. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the official announcement has not yet been made. Perez is head of the Justice Departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Civil Rights Division and previously served as Marylandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s labor secretary. He is expected to have solid support from organized labor and the Hispanic community, which is eager to have Hispanic representation in Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cabinet.

New Yorkers. Health officials say sugar-filled drinks bear much of the blame because they carry hundreds of calories â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a 32-ounce soda has more than a typical fast-food cheeseburger â&#x20AC;&#x201D; without making people feel full. The city â&#x20AC;&#x153;has the ability to do this and the obligation to try to help,â&#x20AC;? the planâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief cheerleader, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, said last month. Critics say the regulation wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make a meaningful difference in diets but will unfairly hurt some businesses while sparing others. A customer who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get a 20-ounce Coke at a sandwich shop could still buy a Big Gulp at a 7-Eleven, for instance, since many convenience stores and supermarkets are beyond the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regulatory reach. New Yorkers are divided on the restriction. A Quinnipiac University poll released last week found 51 percent opposed it, while 46 percent approved. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if the state should be our surrogate parent,â&#x20AC;? Peter Sarfaty, 71, said as he drank a diet cola with lunch in Manhattan this week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You get the information out there, but to tell people what they can or canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do? As if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to stop them.â&#x20AC;? Business organization ranging from the massive American Beverage Association to a local Korean-American grocersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; group have asked a judge to stop the size limit from taking effect until he decides on their bid to block it altogether. He hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ruled on either request. Many businesses arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t taking chances in the meantime. Dominic Fazio, the manager of a Penn Station pizzeria, has stopped ordering 32-ounce and 24-ounce cups, though he calls the regulation â&#x20AC;&#x153;ridiculous.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I guess the law is the law, right?â&#x20AC;? said Fazio, who put up an explanatory sign Coca-Cola Co. provided. The Atlanta-based soda giant said in a statement that helping small businesses prepare was â&#x20AC;&#x153;the responsible thing to do.â&#x20AC;?

Managers at rapper Jay-Zâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 40-40 Club were busy this week making sure they wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get in hot water over carafes of soda and other sweet mixers that accompany bottle service, spokeswoman Lauren Menache said. The carafes are slightly bigger than 16 ounces; city lawyers have indicated such containers should pass muster. Dunkinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Donuts shops, meanwhile, have set out colorful fliers explaining the complex rules surrounding coffee. Lots of lattes are exempt because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re more than half milk. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK for customers to load their large and extra-large coffees with all the sugar or sweet flavoring they want. But the chain will no longer do it for them, for fear of running over the limit of roughly three calories per ounce. Starbucks, meanwhile, believes most of its products wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be affected and isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t making any immediate changes, spokeswoman Linda Mills said. Even some businesses that specialize in big sodas arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t making moves â&#x20AC;&#x201D; yet â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in light of the lawsuit and the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pledge not to impose fines until June. Until then, violations would just spur a notice. At Dallas BBQ, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Texassizeâ&#x20AC;? 20-ounce sodas are staying for now, said Eric Levine, one of the directors. Switching to 16 ounces would mean ordering roughly 10,000 new glasses for the New Yorkbased companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 10 locations, including a Times Square spot that seats 1,000 people. And customers wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel they were getting the same deal: double the soda for little more than the price of the 10-ounce size, Levine said.

The ruleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s effects may be particularly pronounced at movie theaters, where belly-buster sodas are as familiar as coming attractions. Big beverages also account for about 10 percent of profits, according to court papers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People just like that comfort, while theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sitting there â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to make sure they have enough to drink for the whole movie,â&#x20AC;? Russell Levinson, the general manager of Movieworld, mused this week. The family-owned theater sells soda in 20-ounce bottles and 44-, 32-, 22-, and 12-ounce cups. The theater is looking at getting 16-ounce cups, considering twodrink and refill specials and retooling all its drink-and-popcorn combination offers, Levinson said. Some businesses, though, are adapting to the new rule with gusto. At Frames Bowling Lounge, a Manhattan spot that mixes bowling with an upscale bar, the families who pack the lanes on weekend days will no longer be offered pitchers of soda as part of a party package, executive general manager Ayman Kamel said. Instead, they can get individual, eight-ounce cups of soda â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or pitchers of the low-sugar, house-made juices that he and staffers spent an afternoon tasting this week. They experimented with such options as carrot, beet and mintand-citrus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to cost a little bit more money, but nothing is more valuable than having freshly squeezed juice available for our clients,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re taking advantage of the situation to promote the good side â&#x20AC;&#x201D; healthy options.â&#x20AC;?

Woman suspects she may be burned by an old flame DEAR ABBY: I met a man 15 years ago who has recently come back into my life. I hadn’t seen him in years. He says he wants to be with me and marry me, and I very much would like to be his wife. I live in one state, he lives in another and his work is in yet another state. He does travel — not much —but some. The problem is I think he’s married to his job. He says he wants to be home with me once we are married. But then he says that once his work slows down, he won’t earn as much. I’m not sure how I can do this, with him working in one state and living in another. Sometimes I wonder if he’s really in love with me or if he’s stringing me along. How can I be with him if I never see him? If you have any advice for me, please let me know soon. — HEARTS AWAITING DEAR HEARTS AWAITING: If a “little voice” is telling you this man may be stringing you along, make no hasty decisions. It’s important that you visit him at his home at least a few times, get to know his friends and family, if he has any, and see how you would fit in. You also need to decide how

you would spend your “alone” time while he’s working. If you are an independent type, you’ll be able to fill the time. But if you’re not, then face the fact that as much as you care for him, you’d be miserable. So look carefully before you leap to the altar. DEAR ABBY: I am an educated, open-minded, wellspoken, well-mannered single man. I enjoy life and smile just about every waking moment. My problem is that people — especially women — think I’m gay. I assure you, I’m not! One woman recently lambasted me, saying her “gaydar” is never wrong, so I should just admit it to myself. This issue has prohibited me from dating, especially over the last few years, because ladies see me as a peer instead of potential partner. Also, people tell others that I’m gay, so there are preconceived opinions. Please don’t think I am antigay. I have several gay male and female friends. I don’t think my speech inflections or mannerisms make people assume this. I don’t know what to do. Help! — STRAIGHT, BUT NOT NARROW IN ALABAMA DEAR STRAIGHT: Be-

cause there appears to be some confusion about your sexual orientation, I recommend you talk frankly with some of your female and male friends and ask what it is about you that has created this impression. Obviously there is something about the way you present yourself that’s causing it, and the quickest way to find out what it is would be to ask direct questions of the people who know you best. DEAR ABBY: My dear friend, God rest her soul, had a saying I think everyone could benefit from: “You are the master of the unspoken word. Once it is spoken, it is your master forever.” Comments, Abby? — DISCREET MIDWESTERNER DEAR DISCREET: Your dear friend was a smart woman. Too many times we say things that we wish we could take back. The same is true for the written word. (Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.)

Horoscopes ARIES (March 21-April 19). You may receive credit, but you also attribute it to your teachers. The ones who have been affectionate and selfless with you in the past have nurtured your ability to give in the same way to others. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). How can you care and be detached at the same time? You’ll figure that out and more today as life brings you assistance and lessons both practical and spiritual. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There is one accomplishment that once achieved will make many other areas of your life fall into place. It may take weeks to finally get there, but after today’s efforts, you’ll be well on your way. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Is naivety a negative trait? That depends on whether it is caused by a lack of experience or refusal to experience. You’ll help someone who is currently unable or unwilling to help himself. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll

be in a quiet mood, and if your environment matches, you’ll be golden. There’s strength to be gained from the experience of your thoughts. Your energy increases because you let less of it escape through voluminous words. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The correlation between your inner and outer world will be increasingly pronounced. As your unspoken inner will aligns with advantageous events you’ll know that you’re on the right track. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Don’t be tricked into thinking that someone can’t live without you. Do what feels comfortable. Times like this, it’s beneficial and healthier for all involved to let people fend for themselves. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It’s amazing what a smile can do to light up someone else’s world and open doors. You’ll smile often and in many directions. This difference in attitude will bring new developments.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your ability to envision the future will be highlighted. What you speak will in some way announce the next moment even when you have no idea what that moment holds. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The best goals are as challenging as they are realistic. You’re the expert in this regard and the restless feeling inside you declares that it’s about time you found a new target to aim for. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You are usually responsive to those who reach out to you. When you’re not, there are specific reasons. Those reasons are probably mysterious now, but take notes. Later you’ll solve this. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll develop new objectives. Be careful not to bite off more than you can chew. It’s better to name a narrow focus and be successful there than try for a broad accomplishment.

Sword, Mississippi State beats Auburn 74-71 Associated Press

STARKVILLE, Miss. — For first-year Mississippi State coach Rick Ray, there’s a silver lining to every cloud. Despite an unending string of injuries, suspensions and defections, Ray guided his team to a 74-71 overtime victory over Auburn on Saturday behind 19 points from Craig Sword. The win meant Mississippi State didn’t finish at the bottom of the Southeastern Conference. It meant they finished next to last. “You get a chance to read some things, and people talk about us being the worst SEC team in history,” Ray said. “Well that can’t be possible if we finished thirteenth out of 14.” Sword hit two crucial free throws in overtime, but he

wasn’t Mississippi State’s only hero. Mississippi State (9-21, 4-14) trailed by three late in regulation, but Colin Borchert hit a deep 3-pointer to force overtime. Borchert finished with 20 points on 7-of-11 shooting and had 13 rebounds. “I just went out there with a free mind,” Borchert said. “I was feeling it. I just let it ride.” Mississippi State was 25 of 62 (40 percent) from the field, and hit 8 of 17 3-pointers. The Bulldogs overcame 17 turnovers and won the rebounding battle 46-42. Sword was 7 of 17 from the field with six assists, two blocks and two steals. Roquez Johnson and Fred Thomas both chipped in 10 points. “I was wondering where our offense was going to come

from,” Ray said. “Sword got in the lane and created some things for himself in there. He’s that guy for us.” Thomas scored most of his points late, hitting two 3-pointers in close situations. “Fred had been in a funk,” Ray said. “Not just on offense, but on the defensive end, too. He had his head down, no energy. Once he did that, had some energy and made some stops on defense. That was huge for us.” The win moves Mississippi State into the thirteenth seed in the upcoming SEC tournament, just ahead of Auburn. The Bulldogs will play South Carolina on Wednesday night for the third time this season. Auburn (9-22, 3-15) had a chance to win the game in regulation, but Chris Denson couldn’t get his runner to fall. “Coach said to cut him off

going left,” Sword said. “Every time he went left, he was finishing.” Auburn was 28 of 68 (41 percent) from the field, and hit only 3 of 17 3-pointers. The Tigers turned the ball over 14 times. In overtime, a 3-pointer by Thomas put Mississippi State up 71-69, but a goaltending call on the other end tied the game again. After a foul, Sword hit both free throws and Johnson added another for the win. Mississippi State led early, but a 17-4 run by Auburn midway through the first half gave the Tigers a 22-16 lead. The teams were tied 24-24 at the half. Auburn opened up a sixpoint lead early in the second half, but was never able to hold it for more than a few minutes. Please see STATE | 11A

Henderson leads Ole Miss past LSU, 81-67 BY BRETT MARTEL Associated Press

BATON ROUGE, La. — Mississippi coach Andy Kennedy responded to one of the Rebels’ most deflating upset losses this season by incessantly reminding his players that if they pulled together, they could still capture an allimportant top-four seed in the Southeastern Conference tournament. “I talked about it every day simply because it was something that was attainable to us. We didn’t need anyone else’s help,” Kennedy said. “We put ourselves in harm’s way. We realize that. But we can still control our own destiny when there’s opportuni-

ties.” The Rebels responded as Kennedy hoped. Marshall Henderson scored 22 points, Murphy Holloway added 16 and Mississippi clinched a double-bye in the Southeastern Conference tournament with an 81-67 victory over LSU on Saturday. The triumph in Baton Rouge came on the heels of an 87-83 home victory over Alabama and capped a confidence-building week that the Rebels needed after a stunning 73-67 loss at Mississippi State on March 2. “Some days we look like one of the best teams in the SEC. Some days, we look like one of the worst,” Holloway

said. “Today, we looked like one of the best.” Jarvis Summers added 15 points and Nick Williams 11 for Ole Miss (23-8, 12-6), which will head to the league tournament in Nashville next week knowing it will play in Friday’s quarterfinal round. Johnny O’Bryant III had 17 points and 12 rebounds for LSU (18-11, 9-9), which needed a victory to finish higher than the eighth seed and avoid a potential quarterfinal pairing with league-leading Florida. Andre Stringer scored 18 for the Tigers, who finished as the ninth seed, setting up a first-round bye and second-round matchup with No. 8 seed Georgia on

Thursday afternoon. “When you go into the conference tournament, anything can happen,” O’Bryant said. “It’s a whole new season, so we’re ready to put it in front of us. We’re going to be ready to play.” LSU absorbed an early blow when Charles Carmouche, who had scored 20 or more in five of the previous six games, landed hard on his left hip when he was bumped by Holloway on a drive to the hoop. He returned after receiving treatment in the locker room, but finished with only eight points. “I don’t know if I came Please see MISS | 11A

Kentucky rallies to upset No. 11 Florida 61-57 BY GARY GRAVES Associated PressÂ

LEXINGTON, Ky. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Florida coach Billy Donovan said there was nothing wrong with his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s execution down the stretch Saturday against Kentucky. The shots were there. They just werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t falling. The 11th-ranked Gators didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t score in the final 7½ minutes and lost 6157 to Kentucky in their regular-season finale. Florida (24-6, 14-4 Southeastern Conference) scored with 7:36 left on Scottie Wilbekinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3-pointer that turned out to be the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final points. The Gators went 0 for 11 after that and committed five turnovers in coughing up the lead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For the most part, we defended pretty well,â&#x20AC;?

Donovan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make it. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to shoot 50 percent. But if we make a couple of chippies around the basket and maybe one jump shot, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re right there to win the game, and you probably do win the game.â&#x20AC;? It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that the Gators were taking forced shots during their drought. Patric Young missed a

layup and a point-blank jump hook. Wilbekin also missed a layup. And when Donovan drew up a play to get an alley-oop dunk for Casey Prather, the play worked. But Wilbekin threw a bad pass, and Prather couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t handle it. The ball sailed out of bounds. With about 15 seconds left and Kentucky up 5957, Kenny Boynton pulled

up for a 15-foot jumper to tie the game. The ball glanced off the back rim and bounced out of bounds to the Wildcats (21-10, 12-6). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Honestly, we just missed some shots that we should have made,â&#x20AC;? said Erik Murphy, who led all scorers with 17 points. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody had some good shots that they could have made and we just missed

The story of Thomas D. Duncan, Tishomingo Ranger BY TOM PARSON NPS Ranger

When I was a younger man I couldn’t get enough of the old western novels. I was particularly impressed with those lawmen and trackers who were always on the trail after the bad guys. Even with the barest amount of “sign” they could follow the track over mountains and across deserts. Sometimes when I’m searching old military records I’m reminded of those trackers, real and fictional, who could follow the trail like any bloodhound. I like to believe that most of the time I do just as well with historic research, nothing gets by me. Other days I feel I couldn’t track a horse if I was tied to his tail. This has been one of those weeks. I set out to tell the tale of Corinth resident and soldier Thomas Dudley Duncan. How hard could it be? I ended up covering my desk with stacks of books, piles of old newspapers, the U.S. Census reports, a couple of letters and the Corinth City Directory of 1875. To tell the truth, following the man was not a problem. He wrote a book about his Civil War days and told his story with flair and panache. No, the problem I had was the relatively simple task of figuring out which unit he was attached to, and this was what led me on a merry chase. Tom Duncan was born in Jacinto in 1847, the son of William and Rebecca Duncan, who reared their seven children on the family farm. William gave up farming in 1856 and moved to Cross City and set up shop as a merchant. He must have done well as he was able to build a fine home on the north-west corner of Bunch and Fillmore. When the war broke out, young Tom was anxious to join the Confederacy. Since he was only a 15-year-old at the time, his father was not too keen on the idea. He did consent to Tom enlisting in the Corinth Rifles under his neighbor William Kilpatrick. After a matter of weeks the elder Duncan had second thoughts about his boy being in the infantry. Due to Tom’s “youth and rather frail body,” William secured a transfer and had his boy dropped from the company rolls. Tom was then allowed to enlist in the Tishomingo Rangers, a cavalry company being raised by another neighbor, William Inge, a unit which would eventually be part of the 12th Battalion of Mississippi Cavalry. Are you starting to see my dilemma? The boy hadn’t even left Corinth and I had three units to research. Papa Duncan no doubt allowed this transfer to

The Duncan House as it is today on Polk Street. It was moved from its original location on Jackson Street. the Rangers as Tom’s older brother John was the 1st Lieutenant of the company. To sweeten the deal, William gave Tom a fine horse as all Confederate cavalrymen had to provide their own mounts. When orders came for the troops in Corinth to be sent off to war, the Tishomingo Rangers were not included. Several of the men, led by Captain Inge, secured transfers to regiments headed for combat and the number of men in the Rangers dwindled to a mere handful. 1st Lt. John Duncan became the new leader and they were rechristened Duncan’s Company. There weren’t enough men in the Rangers and they were compelled to join with another company from Alabama under Captain (and future general) Philip D. Roddey. Yet another name change was in the works and they were soon known as Roddey’s Company. From here on it gets a little confusing. Roddey’s Company was assigned to the 4th Battalion of Mississippi Cavalry, also known as the 2nd Battalion Mississippi Cavalry, aka Pope Walker’s Battalion, aka Baskerville’s Battalion. To top it off, there was another unit with the name “Tishomingo Rangers” who were assigned to Ham’s 1st Battalion State Cavalry, aka 16th Battalion of State Cavalry and then attached to the 12th Battalion Partisan Rangers under William Inge who had recruited the original Tishomingo Rangers in the first place. At this point my head was spinning. All of the confusing name changes did little to affect young Tom, who

After a short bit of training in Columbus, the company was temporarily attached to Forrest’s Regiment of Cavalry. Buckle up, here we go again. Researching this one regiment was a joy because they were known at different times as Forrest’s Regiment, the 3rd Tennessee Cavalry, the 18th Tennessee Cavalry Battalion, 26th Battalion, Balch’s Battalion, Kelley’s Regiment and McDonald’s Battalion. Take your pick. Tom’s stint with Forrest’s Cavalry led him to

the battle at Fort Donelson on the Cumberland River and then a return to his home in Corinth. When Tom came up the front steps, he found Gen. Beauregard had taken up residence in his father’s home and Duncan House was now the headquarters of the Confederate army’s number two man. As a result of Beauregard’s visit to the family fireside, Thomas was reassigned, again, this time as a courier on the general’s staff. It was Tom’s knowledge of the land between Corinth and Pittsburg Landing that led to his reassignment. His

duties during the Battle of Shiloh led him to every corner of the battlefield and it’s doubtful that anyone saw more of the terrible fight than the 16 year-old courier. He had his horse shot out from underneath him, but escaped with only a minor scratch over his eye. On his return to Corinth, young Tom was detailed away from his company yet again. He was assigned to Captain Samuel Lockett, the West Point trained engineer who surveyed and supervised the construction of the Confederate earthworks around Corinth. It was Tom’s job to lead the engineer to the north and east of town and help him select suitable sites for what we know as the Beauregard Line. Forrest had been wounded in the closing action of the Battle of Shiloh and when he recovered to once again take the field, Duncan’s/ Roddey’s Company was permanently assigned to Forrest’s Cavalry. Ah, another transfer for young Tom, but at least this time to a familiar unit. In the days following the Battle of Chickamauga, in September of ‘63, General Forrest had a minor falling out with his boss General Braxton Bragg. Okay, it was more than a disagreement. Forrest threatened first to “slap his jaws” and then to kill his supervisor. For that lack of discretion, Forrest was banished to West Tennessee with a mere 300 men of his cavalry division. He would have to rebuild his force from recruits in West Tennessee and Northeast Mississippi. Tom Duncan was transferred for the final time

and assigned to Forrest’s Escort and for the rest of the war he was associated with the Confederate chieftain. At long last the war was over and the 19-year-old veteran of 52 engagements began to make his way home. He paid a visit to his father, who had moved to Pontotoc during the Union occupation. In June of ‘65 he finally returned to a Corinth that looked far different from the one he had left three years before. A regiment of Negro troops was the occupying military force in town and many of the buildings he had known had been burned to the ground. Tom had a small stake of cash to start his new life and he found employment as a clerk in a downtown store. He moved back into the family house and restored it to its former beauty. A few years later he married Miss Juliette Elgin of Huntsville, “a beautiful and petite young lady of 118 pounds.” The couple had a pair of daughters and life was good. His brother-in-law Clifton Elgin came to town and opened a combination undertaking, furniture and cabinet shop on the corner of Waldron and Franklin. Tom worked there as his assistant and partner. In 1881 Thomas Duncan was given a plum of a job when he was appointed U. S. Post Master of Corinth by none other than his former adversary, President Ulysses S. Grant. In his declining years Tom was known as “Colonel” Duncan though he had never risen above the rank of private. It was an honorary title given to an honorable man, described in a Memphis newspaper as “a scholarly man … one of the city’s most brilliant literary men and some of his contributions to the historical literature of his native city and state ought to and no doubt will be permanently preserved.” And his work has been preserved. You can download “The Recollections of Thomas D. Duncan” for free at Google Books. It wasn’t easy to track the path of Tom Duncan during the four years of the Civil War, but it was a rewarding journey. For you see, I’ve had an interest in Tom for a very long time. For several years I lived in the Duncan House on Polk Street. I did quite a bit of writing under the same roof where another Tom wrote his book. It was indeed a confusing trail at times. But in the end, it was less like tracking some unknown historic figure and more like following the path of an old friend.

Curtis’ 5-cent hamburgers were great for hungry stomachs (The following information was obtained in part from The Tishomingo County News, the Vidette and Belmont News, Iuka, May 12, 1988.) Molly’s and Claude’s Hamburgers! How they interrupted the hunger and filled the stomachs of a generation of Tishomingo Countians! It was a terribly sad day for Iuka when their café doors were closed after 44 years of business. Claude’s first location was at the corner of Fulton and Eastport Streets. From there, he moved to the middle block of Main Street downtown in 1925. At that time the café was a long, narrow building; dimly lit, and offered barely enough room to

squeeze through, climb up on a stool at the long counter, and enjoy the aroma of hamburgers and onions while RaNae waiting for an orVaughn der. The building was only 7-foot Historically Speaking by 3-inches wide and 40 feet long, and Molly and Claude kept it full of satisfied customers. The menu was simple, and it offered just what the public demanded–hamburgers. The burgers were better than the ordinary and had the special “Claude Curtis flavor.” In

1925, along with hamburgers, beverages offered were coffee or a choice of three soft drinks -- Coke, Cherry Cola, or Peach Whip. A meal, hamburger and drink, was 10 cents. Claude Curtis Hamburgers were sold in Iuka for 5 cents for 30 years. In 1954, when the price of the bun increased, the Curtis’ found it necessary to raise the price to 10 cents where it remained until their retirement. Eight years prior to retirement, Claude and Molly pulled up stakes from the building they had occupied for so long and built, at the same site, a roomy brick café with a spacious counter, tables and

booths, and a juke box. This is the building which later housed Main Street Restaurant and is now home to Friendly Spider. In this larger and more efficient facility, they were better able to accommodate the increased number of workers who needed quick service on a lunch break with limited time to spare. Finally, after 1,440,000 hamburgers and 80 tons of meat, the Curtises had enough and sold their thriving business to Bobby and Ruby James. CocaCola Bottling Works of Corinth presented Claude a gold CocaCola bottle, and friends and well wishers from all the world called and wrote their thanks and their regrets. Letters from

Sam Traylor, Jr.; Jim Jackson (Houston, Texas); Captain James F. Oaks (Vietnam); and Leon Bruton (Marshall Islands) were received and printed in Iuka’s local newspaper, The Vidette. American servicemen were especially fond of Claude as he often fed them free in his restaurant and gave each departing serviceman from Tishomingo County a silver dollar on behalf of the local American Legion Post.

emony from textbook to storybook, and they may even save the new couple some money. “Sometimes the sentimental things are less expensive than the newest and most fashionable things, and they certainly make the wedding memorable and personal,” said Bobbie Shaffett, family resource management specialist with the Mississippi State University Extension Service. While family and the commitment of a marriage are more important than the wedding event, many opportunities exist to make the ceremony personal and special, she said. “A bride can express her individuality by having her attendants each carry a long-stem rose rather than big flower bouquets,” Shaffett said. Bridesmaids can wear differently styled dresses of the same color. This lets attendants choose a style that is flattering and reflects their personal style. When bridesmaids go less formal, the groom and his attendants can wear black suits rather than rented tuxedoes. Susan Cosgrove, an Extension family resource management area agent in Newton County, said simplicity in weddings is a good thing. “You don’t have to do things the traditional way. You can use simple decorations and simple flowers,” Cosgrove said. “There is a prevalent philosophy of getting back to the basics and paring down the excess.” Beth Bell, child and family development specialist in Tallahatchie County, said every aspect

of a wedding is customized these days. “The possibilities of having a personalized wedding are endless,” Bell said. “It is the bride and groom’s special day, and the wedding and reception should reflect their personalities and interests.” Special touches can include a ceremony that includes a Bible verse that is special to the couple or a specific song performed at the wedding or reception. Some weddings have themes, although these are more commonly seen expressed in the rehearsal dinner, the reception or on a smaller scale at the groom’s table with his cake. “A theme is a great way to personalize part of the wedding celebration,” Bell said. “These can highlight a particular activity the bride and groom like to do together, such as outdoor activities or tailgating.” Sometimes, personalizing a wedding ceremony also brings the cost down. Bell encouraged prospective couples to draw on the talents and generosity of friends and family with certain tasks. Artistic friends can help with invitations or decorations, musician friends can perform in the wedding or at the reception, and those with cooking skills can form a catering crew. “Ask for help and utilize family members and friends with talents and access to items that might be needed for the wedding,” Bell said. “Not only can this save some money, but it makes the event so much more personal and memorable.”

Spring wild turkey season opens on Friday “TGIF” is something that’s often said when people are looking forward to the ending of the traditional work week. A true sentiment indeed, but next week area sportsmen will have another reason to scream the four capital case letters aloud. Friday will be a beginning rather than an end. The second most popular of all the hunting seasons will be opening. The Mississippi spring wild turkey season opens March 15 and runs through May 1. Only one adult gobbler or one gobbler with a sixinch or longer beard may be taken per day, not exceeding more than three throughout the duration of the season. Many of today’s hunters

take pride of their skills in working a turkey call, sometimes placing David too much Green e m p h a s i s on soundOutdoors ing sweet instead of assessing the whole picture prior to and during a hunt. The sweet talk does sound good and it can be helpful in fooling a wise old tom, but it’s only a small portion of what it takes to garner success in turkey hunting. Other factors which play into being successful include: knowing the lay of the land like the back of your hand, knowledge of the

turkey’s roosts and travel routes, mastering exceptional woodsman skills, and knowing where and how to set up in order to boost the odds. By knowing the territory and possessing a general knowledge of how turkeys use it, the hunter can use his woodsman skills to best maneuver the landscape and get a wing up on his quarry. This is something that should be learned prior to a hunt so obstacles such as creeks, thickets, steep hillsides or some other abnormal feature doesn’t hinder impediment if a gobbler responds to your calling. Turkeys will fly over said barriers during normal travel, but rarely will they cross over when responding to hen calls.

The hunter has to make it as easy as possible for a tom to come in. If a bird gobbles, for instance, and you are aware there’s a barrier in the way, don’t just sit down and hope for the best. Back out of the area and make a wide circle around to put yourself on the same side of the terrain feature as the gobbler. How you set up is critical. Beware of the skinny tree and don’t set up in brush so thick that it makes it cumbersome to swing your gun. Where possible, set up against a tree wider than your shoulders, remain still, and trust your camo to conceal your silhouette from the approaching tom. The best case scenario

for an opening day hunt, or any other hunt for that matter, is to get in as close as possible to a gobbling tom on the roost. Using the available cover and getting within, say, 60 to 80 yards lessens the chance of hens pulling the tom away. Once situated, make a few soft tree calls and most likely it won’t be long before you’ll be headed back to the truck with the bird draped over your shoulder. Some toms aren’t so easy, though; stubborn and wise old birds are known to fly down in the opposite direction from what was expected. If a problem such as this continues to be encountered, it can be remedied by taking a buddy along and positioning him in the

general area of the tom’s back-ended escape path. The bird will be greeted with an unexpected surprise. Fortunate hunters who are lucky enough to bag a bird by the end of the day next Friday should be reserved the right to make a change in the old saying, at least for this year. “TGITS”, thank goodness it’s turkey season!

Chronic Wasting Disease attacks deer, progresses slowly BY JAMES L. CUMMINS Conservation Corner

Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) is a progressive neurological, debilitating disease that belongs to a family of diseases known as Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies (TSEs). TSEs are caused by unusual infectious agents known as prions. CWD attacks the brain of infected animals, causing the animal to become emaciated, display abnormal behavior, lose bodily functions and eventually die. First recognized in 1967 as a clinical wasting syndrome, CWD is a disease of farmed and free-ranging deer, elk

and moose. Although this disease shares certain features with other TSEs, it distinctly affects only these animals. There is no known vaccine or treatment for this terrible disease and though research is underway to develop live-animal testing, currently the only means of positive diagnosis is through the examination of the brain tissue of a dead animal. The exact mechanism of transmission is unclear, but evidence suggests CWD is transmitted directly from one animal to another through saliva, feces and urine containing abnormal prions shed in those fluids and tissues.

While the possibility of human infection remains a concern, it is important to note there have been no verified cases of humans contracting the disease. This includes transmission through eating grass growing in contaminated soil. CWD progresses rather slowly. Because of its long incubation period, a susceptible animal may not show signs for a number of months, or even years, after it is infected. As the disease progresses, however, the animal will gradually show changes in appearance and behav-

ior. These changes may include significant weight loss, stumbling, tremors, blank facial expressions, lack of coordination, excessive drooling, suppressed appetite, teeth grinding, listlessness and other outward, notable signs. It has even been noted that animals with this disease emit a smell like meat starting to rot. Although CWD is contagious and fatal among

deer, elk and moose, research suggests that humans, cattle and other domestic livestock are resistant to natural transmission. While the possibility of human infection remains a concern, it is important to note there have been no verified cases of humans contracting the disease. However, to minimize the risk of exposure, hunters should consult their state wildlife agencies to identify any areas where CWD occurs and take appropriate precautions when hunting in those areas. In June of 2012, the U. S. Department of Agriculture Animal and Plant

Health Inspection Service announced an interim final rule to establish a CWD herd certification program along with minimum requirements for interstate movement of deer, elk and moose in the United States. This proactive step should help to control the spread of this dreadful disease. (Daily Corinthian columnists James L.

Disney, Sam Raimi gamble on return trip to Oz BY SANDY COHEN AP Entertainment Writer

LOS ANGELES — Returning to the mystical land of “The Wizard of Oz” took more than 70 years and several hundred millions dollars. Disney releases its highly anticipated prequel to the 1939 movie classic on Friday. Directed by Sam Raimi, “Oz the Great and Powerful” explores the origins of the wizard (James Franco) and the witches (Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams and Rachel Weisz) in a three-dimensional Oz. The $200 million production, not counting another $100 million in estimated marketing costs, is a huge gamble for everyone involved, considering “The Wizard of Oz” is among the most enduring and beloved films of all time. Even Raimi, director of the first three “Spider-Man” movies, described the project as “daunting.” The risk is compounded by a general box-office slump and a poor show-

ing for last weekend’s $200 million big-screen take on another popular tale, “Jack the Giant Slayer,” based on “Jack and the Beanstalk.” “The plus side is that there’s such incredible awareness of ‘The Wizard of Oz’ that it’s going to translate into a mammoth opening weekend for ‘Oz the Great and Powerful,”’ said Dave Karger, chief correspondent for “The danger is that many people’s natural tendency will be to compare this to ‘The Wizard of Oz,’ and there’s no film that will ever live up to that.” According to a survey done by the site, nearly all those buying tickets for the new “Oz” film have seen the original, and the film is far and away the most popular of the week, comprising almost 80 percent of tickets sold. Franco has loved the world created by L. Frank Baum since he first saw the 1939 movie on TV as a kid. It inspired him to read all of Baum’s books,


which led him to other fantasy fare such as “Alice in Wonderland” and the works of J. R. R. Tolkien. But the notion of revisiting the Land of Oz with an A-list director wasn’t enough to lure Franco to the leading role. “I already had a lot of faith in the movie because Sam was attached, but as an Oz fan, I wanted to be sure that the approach was sound,” the actor said. “They very smartly did not just do a boy version of Dorothy and have the same trip through Oz.” For one, Franco notes the wizard is a con man and his trip through Oz is very different than Dorothy’s was. “He’ll be getting into awkward situations, basically kind of bouncing off of Oz in ways that Dorothy didn’t,” the actor said. While the new “Oz” has plenty of familiar elements — the yellow brick road, Emerald City, witches, munchkins (now multi-ethnic) — “the ways they’re interacting with the protagonist (are)

completely different,” Franco said. As the film opens in sepia-toned 1905 Kansas, Franco’s Oscar Diggs is a carnival magician who dreams of fame and fortune at any cost. When a twister whisks him to a fantastical land bearing his stage name — Oz — whose inhabitants believe him to be a wizard sent to save them, he can’t believe his luck. Power and riches are practically his for the taking. But first, he faces three witches, none of whom are exactly as they seem. Oz befriends a few locals, including a flying monkey (Zach Braff) and a china doll (Joey King), and eventually makes the plight of the people of Oz his own. Like Franco, Raimi grew up loving the original “Oz” film. “I remember it being the scariest movie I’d ever seen in my life and also the most touching movie, the saddest, sweetest thing I’d ever seen,” he said. “It was that spirit

of sweetness, of characters becoming complete by the end of the story — that was the most powerful thing I took away from the 1939 classic and the thing we tried collectively to put in our picture.” Some critics have questioned the casting of Franco as the wizard. The AP’s Christy Lemire wrote that he’s “too boyish for the role ... neither charismatic nor self-loathing enough.” Yet Raimi believes Franco was the perfect actor to portray the wizard: “He was born to play the part.” Franco and Raimi are personal friends, and the director said he’s seen the actor’s growth as a performer and an individual since they first worked together on 2002’s “SpiderMan.” “I knew James was a moody dreamer, and that’s who Oz is,” Raimi said. “He dreams of being this great man, even if he doesn’t know what greatness is.” The director knew Franco could embody

both the selfishness — which Raimi had seen in the actor when he was younger — and the heart of the wizard. “Because James had, in his life, been all of these things, I knew that if he could grab a hold of them and recognize them and hold up a mirror to himself — however actors do that — he could channel everything he was through this character and really bring him to life like no one else,” Raimi said. Franco said playing the role “was really like I was stepping into the imaginative world of my childhood.” And coming into Oz through the wily wizard, whose origins were never fully explored in the Baum books, is an inspired way to revisit the world, he said. “It’s a great way to return to Oz through a character that you sort of know but not really,” the actor said. “Because of that, it’s a great entry that feels familiar and new.”

Facebook executive’s book urges all women to ‘lean in’ BY BARBARA ORTUTAY AP Technology Writer

NEW YORK — For a book that has yet to be released, Sheryl Sandberg’s “Lean In” — part feminist manifesto, part how-to career guide — has got a lot of people talking. In the weeks leading up to the book’s release on Monday, pundits and press hounds have been debating its merits. New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd called Sandberg a “PowerPoint Pied Piper in Prada ankle boots,” and countless bloggers have suggested that Facebook’s chief operating officer is the wrong person to lead a women’s movement. “Most of the criticism has to do with the position she is coming from,” said Susan Yohn, professor and chairwoman of Hofstra University’s history department. Sandberg, 43, hopes that her message of empowerment won’t be obscured by the lofty pedestal from which she speaks. But is the multi-millionaire with two Harvard degrees too rich to offer advice? Too successful? Does her blueprint for success ignore the plight of poor and working-class women? Does the book’s very premise blame women for not rising to top corporate positions at the same rate as men? And just how big is her house? The questions keep coming largely because few people have actually read the book. But in it, Sandberg seems to have foreseen much of the criticism. The book acknowledges that critics might discount her feminist call to action with an easy-forher-to-say shrug. “My hope is that my message will be judged on its merits,” she writes in the preamble. Sandberg recognizes that parts of the book are targeted toward women who are in a position to make decisions about their careers. Still, she writes, “we can’t avoid this conversation. This issue transcends all of us. The time is long overdue to encourage more women to dream the possible dream and encourage more men to support women in the workforce and in the home.” Published by Alfred A. Knopf Inc., “Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead” will be launched Thursday with a reception in New York City hosted by Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Ari-

anna Huffington. It’s true that Sandberg is wealthy. She also has a supportive husband. Mark Zuckerberg is her boss. And, yes, her home in Menlo Park, Calif., has 9,000 square feet. But as a woman in Silicon Valley, Sandberg hasn’t exactly had it easy, and her tale shows she’s no armchair activist. After all, not many women would march into their boss’ office and demand special parking for expectant mothers. But Sandberg did just that when she worked at Google. Company founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin complied. After Sandberg moved to Facebook in 2008, she became even more outspoken on the issues facing women in corporate America. At a time when other executives, male or female, have largely stayed quiet, Sandberg has delivered speeches on topics such as “Why we have too few women leaders.” And she’s no workaholic. In an age of endless work hours, Sandberg is famous for leaving the office at 5:30 to spend time with her family. She does admit, however, to picking up work once her kids have gone to bed. Of the many inspirational slogans that hang on Facebook’s walls, her favorite asks “What would you do if you weren’t afraid?” “Lean In” is about pushing past fear. “Fear is at the root of so many of the barriers that women face,” she writes. “Fear of not being liked. Fear of making the wrong choice. Fear of drawing negative attention. Fear of overreaching. Fear of being judged. Fear of failure. And the holy trinity of fear: the fear of being a bad mother/wife/daughter.” Sandberg peppers the book with studies, reports and personal anecdotes to back up her premise — that for reasons both in and out of their control, there are fewer woman leaders than men in the business world and beyond. For example, the Fortune 500 has only 21 female CEOs. Sandberg is among the 14 percent of women who hold executive officer positions and the 16 percent of women who hold board of director seats, according to For minority women, the numbers are even bleaker. Women of color, she writes, hold just 4 percent of top corporate

jobs and 3 percent of board seats. “A truly equal world would be one where women ran half our countries and companies and men ran half our homes. I believe that this would be a better world,” she writes. “The laws of economics and many studies of diversity tell us that if we tapped the entire pool of human resources and talent, our collective performance would improve.” At less than 200 pages, plus a good chunk of footnotes, “Lean In” does not purport to be the end-all solution to inequality. It deals with issues Sandberg sees as in women’s control. “Don’t leave before you leave” is one of her catchphrases, aimed at successful women who gradually drop out of the workforce in anticipation of children they may someday bear. “Make your partner a real partner” is another. She says everyone should encourage men to “lean in” at home by being equal partners in parenting and housework. “Lean In” is, by and large, for women who are looking to climb the corporate ladder (which Sandberg calls a jungle gym), and ideally their male supporters. She hopes it’s the start of a conversation. To that end, Sandberg plans to donate all of the proceeds to her newly minted nonprofit, Sandberg writes about the “ambition gap” between men and women in the workplace — that while men are expected to be driven, ambition in women can be seen as negative. She writes about parents’ genderbased approaches to child rearing that teach girls to be “pretty like mommy” and boys “smart like daddy,” as she’s seen on baby onesies sold at Gymboree. And she writes about “feeling like a fraud” — that insidious notion, felt largely by women but men as well, that success is due not to one’s own merit but to some sort of gross oversight or accident. In the end, “Lean In” is a call to action to make it easier for women to become leaders. It’s a call for women to take space at the table, raise their hands, speak up and step up. It’s a personal account of a woman who, through a mix of talent, luck and ambition, but also with plenty of internal and external obstacles along the way, managed to do that.
