Liquor petition effort reaches signature goal BY JEBB JOHNSTON

IUKA — The Tishomingo County petition for an election on the legalization of liquor and beer has reached the target number but is now going for a cushion of extra names. The petition needed 2,592 signatures of qualified voters, and the number has reached 2,601. The circuit clerk’s office has been checking names as they have been gathered gradually over the last few years. Charles “Tubby� Aldridge, the man behind the petition, originally planned to present the names to the Tishomingo County Board of Supervisors Monday morning, but he decided on Friday to delay presenting the petition in order to build a cushion of 100 extra names in case it is challenged. In the last few weeks, he needed less than 100 to reach

Fire sweeps through home BY BRANT SAPPINGTON

No one was injured Saturday when fire swept through a home on Third Street sending thick smoke through the neighborhood that could be seen

throughout the city. Fire broke out at the home around 1 p.m. Saturday and the fire was burning strongly when firefighters arrived on the scene. Corinth Fire Department Lt.

2,592, and Aldridge said those signatures came pretty easily. “As quick as the weather got where I could get out, they flocked to me,� he said. When a valid petition is presented, the county will set a special election date between 30 and 60 days later. Brewing since April 2010, Aldridge’s petition has taken a long and winding path. He originally thought he needed 1,500 names for the countywide vote and learned only after presenting them to the circuit clerk that the number needed was actually about 1,000 more. The signatures were checked for validity at that time and have continued to be checked along the way as he has presented batches of additional signatures.

Bass tournament will reel in funds for St. Jude BY BRANT SAPPINGTON

Area anglers will have the chance to reel in some serious prize money while helping children suffering from cancer and other life-threatening illnesses during an upcoming bass tournament on Pickwick Lake. The Fifth Annual Pickwick Big Bass Classic casts off on March 30 at JP Coleman State Park with all proceeds going to

benefit the Sardis St. Jude Bass Classic which annually donates thousands of dollars to support the work of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

With a total purse of $15,000 and a unique multiple weigh-in format the tournament offers fishermen numerous opportunities to bring home big bucks while using their sport to give back to St. Jude. Tournament organizer Chris Morlok’s passion for helping the children of St. Jude comes from a lifetime of seeing the good the center has done. His father, Dennis Morlok, retired

from St. Jude as its chief financial officer after almost 30 years, and he grew up witnessing firsthand his father’s love for the hospital and the difference it makes in children’s lives. “It’s just such a special place,� he said. His father has played a key role in organizing the annual Sardis tournament for St. Jude and he’s participated in every one for many years. He said he

heard from a lot of his fellow fishermen a desire to have a St. Jude supporting tournament on Pickwick Lake and five years ago he stepped out on faith and launched the Pickwick Big Bass Classic with the funds raised benefit the Sardis event’s efforts to raise funds for St. Jude. He said the Pickwick event has grown steadily over the Please see TOURNEY | 2A

Arnold proud of state’s school prayer stand BY BOBBY J. SMITH

As a pastor, Rep. Tracy Arnold is proud of Mississippi for standing up for the religious rights of students in public schools. “It’s a good day to be a Christian and a Mississippian,� Arnold said on Friday, one day after Senate Bill 2633 was signed into law by Gov. Phil Bryant. SB 2633 is the Senate version of the House bill Arnold coauthored that allows children to express their faith in Mississippi’s public schools. “Now they can have prayer at graduations and ballgames and be able to express their religious beliefs,� said Arnold. “It’s getting prayer back in schools. It’s one of the main things I was running to do.� Also known as the Mississippi Religious Liberties Act of 2013, the bill states that volun-

tary student expression of religious viewpoints in public schools is permitted, that public school districts shall allow religious Arnold expression in class assignments and that students will have the freedom to organize religious groups and activities in public schools. “Thank God,� said Arnold, “I believe this will bring the favor of God on our great state and its leadership.� Arnold is the main author of another bill that will soon come to the floor in the Senate. House Bill 1322 will give tax credits to companies or individuals who hire veterans coming home after serving overseas. The bill

“It’s a good day to be a Christian and a Mississippian.� Rep. Tracy Arnold unanimously passed in the House and has passed the Finance Committee and will likely be signed into law early next week. “A lot of our military guys can’t find employment coming home. They’re good mannered and qualified — and it’s very distressing to them,� Arnold said. “This will help them find jobs coming home.� Arnold said he is also happy with the work he did on bills protecting the privacy of gun owners and clarifying the state’s handgun carry policy.

past several years with an average of 100 boats each year. It’s been a grassroots effort with a very limited budget for advertising and promotion and Morlok said he’s working every year to increase the visibility of the tournament in the bass fishing community and encourage more anglers to put the event on their calendar.

Bass fishing is an expensive and time intensive hobby and Morlok said he believes this type of event offers anglers the opportunity to use their boats and equipment to give back while enjoying their sport. This year’s Pickwick Big Bass Classic offers a variety of ways to win big with a $5,000 prize for the biggest fish of the day and a $1,200 prize for the biggest small mouth bass of

the day plus prizes awarded throughout the day. Prizes will paid for the top three every two hours throughout the day with first place in each award period worth $1,000, second place winning $500 and third bringing in $250, plus a pair of $100 wild card prizes. The weigh in station will be open throughout the day, offering participants the opportunity to tailor their own strategy

without worrying about hitting a specific deadline to weigh-in. Entry fee is $190 per boat and covers the boat and up to two anglers. Registration can be done in advance online through Saturday, March 23, at or on the morning of the event with check in starting at 3:45 a.m. For more information, visit the website or call Morlok at 901-604-6274.

University proposes fracking on own land BY KRISTIN M. HALL Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The University of Tennessee wants to allow hydraulic fracturing to extract natural gas on a state-owned tract of rolling woodland and use the revenue to fund research into the environmental impact of such drilling — a proposal that environmentalists condemn as a conflict of interest. The unique proposal is being considered as national debate continues over “fracking.” Energy companies use the pro-

cedure to remove gas or oil from rock formations by forcing liquids underground at high pressure. Many universities say they lack the money to properly study its environmental implications. Gwen Parker, a Nashville-based staff attorney for the Southern Environmental Law Center, said her group is taking a lead in trying to block the move. She called the university’s proposal a “fundamental conflict of interest.”

The petition form is published weekly as an ad in the Tishomingo County News. Aldridge believes too much tax money on beer and liquor sales leaves the county, and he is convinced that voters will say “yes” to alcohol. “There is no doubt in my mind it will win big time,” he said.

JACKSON — Mississippi Agriculture Commissioner Cindy Hyde-Smith sees Jackson’s best hope for becoming a crossroads for large-scale exhibitions, professional entertainment and music concerts resting within the confines of the 51-year-old Mississippi Coliseum. To that end, she is lobbying legislators for around $40 million to overhaul the building. She had initially planned to seek $30 million for renovations of both the Coliseum and neighboring Trade Mart. Now her efforts are centered entirely on the Coliseum, HydeSmith said, though she emphasized she will seek help for the aging Trade Mart after securing money for the Coliseum revamp. “We just can’t do everything at the same time,” she said, “but that definitely is part two.” The choice is either making a go of the Coliseum as a viable venue or letting it continue to deteriorate, she said. “There are lots of challenges in that building,” she said. Smith, a Republican who served more than a decade in the state Senate before elected to her statewide post in 2011, must overcome any reservations Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves, the Senate’s fiscal gatekeeper, may have. Reeves has he would be hesitant to include the renovation money in a legislative general fund bond bill. Reeves said he would have to be convinced the allocation covers a “priority” need. “The Senate and House are only beginning to talk about which projects to include in a bond bill,” he said recently in an email. “We will review requests and finalize a bill by the end of the session. However, the Legislature needs to pass a reasonable, rational bond package that pays for priority needs.”

State Fairgrounds, will have to wait at least several more years for a renovation. It is one of the state’s busiest exhibition venues. Billy Orr, State Fairgrounds director, and his deputy, Jake Hutchins, are keeping the Trade Mart’s 67,000 square feet of open space booked by pitching its central location, ample parking and low costs. “We’re right on the interstate near two interchanges,” Orr said. “We’ve got plenty of parking. It’s probably the safest place (among Jackson’s exhibition and meeting venues) because of its location. I think, though, the big reason is the cost per square foot.” In setting his rental fees, Orr is mainly concerned about covering the cost of keeping the place running. The goal, he said, is to “make our budget every year and pay our utility fees and salaries” On the booking side, Orr said on a scale of 1 to 10, “I’d give it a solid 8. It’s been good. We stay pretty full.” The opening of the more than 300,000-square-foot Jackson Convention Center Complex slightly more than three years ago has made no detectable dent in Trade Mart bookings, according to Orr. While the Convention Center complex has a new, modern structure with attractive features such as carpeting, clean and spacious restrooms and escalators, it can’t accommodate the large events staged at the Trade Mart each year, chief among them the Jackson Junior League’s Mistletoe Marketplace.

move forward in a transparent manner, in which we will seek to engage and receive input from all interested parties.” Before the meeting, about 50 people against fracking held a rally across the street from the state Capitol. “We should not be allowing fracking in the state of Tennessee until we are absolutely certain that we have regulations ... in place that are going to guarantee the protection of water quality,” said Scott Banbury, one of the organizers. Environmentalists also argue that preservation of the forest tract in question is critical because it is one of the few mature forests still intact in the state’s Cumberland Mountains region. Gov. Bill Haslam is supportive of the university’s proposal. Shale formations undergird a wide swath of Appalachia. Hydraulic fracturing has touched off a boom, making enormous reserves of natural gas accessible where previous methods could not. Natural gas is extracted using large volumes of water, plus sand and chemicals, injected deep underground to break rock apart, freeing the gas. But environmentalists say the fluids could pollute water sources and methane leaks could cause air pollution. “There are questions surrounding natural gas extrac-

tion and we have the facilities, and we have the faculty, so have obligation to investigate in an unbiased, scientific way to provide those answers,” said Dr. Bill Brown, dean for research and director of the University of Tennessee Agricultural Experiment Station. Other universities that have studied fracking have faced criticism about their scientific findings after it became known that researchers had ties to the energy industry. The University of Texas at Austin recently said it would appoint outside experts to review that school’s Energy Institute, which issued a report on environmental effects from gas without disclosing that the lead researcher was also being paid hundreds of thousands of dollars by an energy company. And in May, a report from New York’s University at Buffalo generated similar controversy because of a researcher’s ties to the gas industry. Brown said the faculty who would work on the Tennessee project would be screened for outside relationships with industry contacts. He said other funding sources, such as federal or state grants, would be sought. He also rejected the suggestion that possible involvement by an energy company in the project

would affect research findings. “We need to get past this notion that if the university works with an industry, that somehow we are compromised or tainted,” Brown said. “Ultimately, many of the technologies that our faculty develops are going to be delivered to the market through the industry.” Parker said the university has attempted to push this proposal through the approval process without getting an independent appraisal of property value or the natural gas below ground. She also said there hasn’t been enough time to get details about the project. Pittsburgh-based Consol Energy Inc. hired Bryan Kaegi, a fundraiser for Haslam and other prominent Tennessee Republicans, to help shepherd the proposal through the approval process. Kaegi, who has not registered as a lobbyist, said in the correspondence with school officials that he had met with the governor and environmental officials to make the case for the program. Kaegi did not return messages seeking comment. Brown said if the subcommittee approves the university’s request to seek bids, they will have to evaluate those and go back to the State Building Commission for final approval.

Jake Hutchins State Fairgrounds deputy director


“We have not been able to find any instances of a university drilling on their land and funding their research with revenues from the drilling activities,” Parker said. Without an appraisal, it was unclear how much revenue such drilling could yield, though some said it could be in the range of millions of dollars annually. The university wants state permission to allow an outside company to drill on about 8,000 acres of mature woodlands it maintains as an outdoor laboratory in the Cumberland Plateau — all while performing research on the effects on water quality, air quality and ground impacts. University officials argue that because the property is stateowned, they can maintain control over the drilling project and provide independent scientific results in an area of the industry where many environmental questions remain. On Friday, the university presented its proposal to a subcommittee of the State Building Commission, which voted unanimously to allow the university to seek bids from companies. “Our intention is sciencebased investigation,” said Larry Arrington, chancellor of the UT Institute of Agriculture. “We will

Hyde-Smith said she is willing to do the project in phases if the funding can’t be provided all at once. “However the Legislature wants to do it; we’re just asking for the funding,” she said. An improvement study by Jackson architectural firm Wier+Boerner proposes all new permanent seating, a new stage, sound system, lighting system, new dressing rooms, new restrooms, four new elevators and an escalator. Audience seating would increase by 500 and additional space would be provided in the club level for another 300 folding chairs. Hyde-Smith said she expects the renovations would take 18 months but thinks the actual shutdown of the Coliseum could be limited to the 12 months between the Dixie National Rodeo events at the facility. Her plan would be to start the work just after the next year’s rodeo in mid-February and finish most of the project in time to host the rodeo the following February. Wier+Boerner envision a new color scheme throughout with the upgraded finishes as well as six new private suites with balconies. The private suites would be served by private corridors. Hyde-Smith said once the multi-million dollar improvements are completed she would put naming rights to the Coliseum on the market. “The rights will be worth a lot more on a renovated building than they are right now,” she said. The Mississippi Trade Mart, long the workhorse venue of the

“The Convention Center doesn’t have the parking nor the square footage,” said Hutchins, chief booker of events at both the Trade Mart and Coliseum. The Mistletoe extravaganza is the Trade Mart’s largest event of the year and shows no signs of slowing its annual growth. “It’s bringing people from everywhere,” Hutchins said. “We have to put tents outside. It’s something to see.” Other major events for Trade Mart use each year are the Wildlife Extravaganza and Farris Brothers Hardware & Sporting Goods Show. The Trade also has hosted the Mississippi Business Journal’s annual Business & Technology Expo and will do so again on April 4. The Trade Mart hosts gun shows regularly as well as car shows, craft shows, bridal shows, legislative events and gatherings for groups. Event organizers such as the Junior League tell Fairgrounds officials they want the Trade Mart’s interior modernized and more restrooms, Hutchins said. Hutchins said the renovations can’t start soon enough. “The Trade Mart has been run and run and then run some more,” he said. When the money is there, Hutchins has a priority list of improvements for the Trade Mart. “The Trade Mart has roof leaks. We need to get the air conditioning units off the roof,” he said. Overall, it needs “a complete face lift, including a bigger foyer on the front,” he said. For now, Hutchins will go on booking and waiting for the day he has a fixed-up venue to sell. “The Trade Mart is a Grand Old Lady,” he said. “She just needs a facelift.” ——— Information from: Mississippi Business Journal, http://

Education, Medicaid dominate discussions in Legislature BY CLAYTON STANLEY Lobbyist

The two most talked about issues around the state Capitol continue to be Medicaid and education. The House Medicaid Committee began the week with a push to further discuss the much talked about Medicaid expansion. As mentioned in this column before, Obamacare gave the states the option to expand their Medicaid rolls by 38 percent with the federal government footing the bill for the first three years. The committee heard testimony from all perspectives including hospital administrators, Governor’s staff, the Medicaid Director and an economist. The issue remains highly partisan with Governor Bryant and the Republicans largely opposing the expansion and Democrats supporting it. While both side are continuing to hold firm on their positions publicly, there was rumbling late in the week that members have begun studying a concept adopted by Arkansas early in the week. The Arkansas proposal is to use the federal money to provide coverage to additional people, but instead of adding them to the state run Medicaid roll, the money would be used to purchase private insurance policies. This idea could gain traction in Mississippi in the next few weeks. While several education bills continue to move through the process, including those dealing with charter schools, one education related bill that could potentially have a greater impact on local county schools is the bill that would allow for an appointed school superintendent. As I’ve mentioned in this column before, there are only 146 elected school superintendents in the United States with Mississippi being home to 64 of them. While Alcorn County has been fortunate to have elected many excellent county school superintendents, unfortunately that is not the case in other parts of the state. The reality is that when a superintendent is appointed, the decision is based much more on education and leadership experience than on popularity, as is the case when the superintendent is elected. Voters in many of the small counties in Mississippi struggle to find qualified candidates for this critical position. This bill would allow candidates to be hired from other counties or states if that is what it took to find the most qualified person. At one point during the debate of this bill Chairman John Moore was asked what qualifications were required to be eligible for superintendent. His reply, “well evidently you must be a coach.” While offered in jest to relax what was a tense debate, there is a lot of truth to what he said, and sometimes the truth hurts. Should SB2199 become law in its current form, counties will hold a referendum on the 2014 midterm election ballot to decide whether or not the job of county school superintendent would become an appointed position. Alcorn countians should seriously consider this option. Making the job of superintendent an appointed position would remove much of the politics from the job while still giving voters a voice through the election of board members. Superintendents could then lay out a long-term plan for success and stick to it. A far different way of managing from the current inefficient model requiring the officeholder to manage from four year term to four year term. Case in point, in the last 40 years the Corinth School District has had two appointed superintendents while the county has elected five – three in less than ten years. On lighter, yet unfortunately no less serious note, Senate Bill 2625 passed in the house. It states that if any public official is convicted of embezzling money they cannot be rehired by any state, county or municipal government. While this is a great piece of common sense legislation, what does it say about Mississippi voters that we would even need such a law?

Intellectuals and race, Part IV Among the many irrational ideas about racial and ethnic groups that have polarized societies over the centuries and around the world, few have been more irrational and counterproductive than the current dogmas of multiculturalism. Intellectuals who imagine that they are helping racial or ethnic groups that lag behind by redefining their lags out of existence with multicultural rhetoric are in fact leading them into a blind alley. Multiculturalism is a tempting quick fix for groups that lag by simply pronouncing their cultures to be equal, or “equally valid,” in some vague and lofty sense. Cultural features are just different, not better or worse, according to this dogma. Yet the borrowing of particular features from other cultures -- such as Arabic numerals that replaced Roman numerals, even in Western cultures that derived from Rome -- implies that some features are not simply different but better, including numbers. Some of the most advanced cultures in history have borrowed from other cultures, because no given collection of human beings has created the best answers to all the questions of life.

Nevertheless, since multiculturalists see all cultures as equal or “equally valid,” they Thomas see no justiSowell fication for schools to inHoover Institution sist that black children learn standard English, for example. Instead, each group is encouraged to cling to its own culture and to take pride in its own past glories, real or imaginary. In other words, members of minority groups that lag educationally, economically or otherwise are to continue to behave in the future as they have in the past -- and, if they do not get the same outcomes as others, it is society’s fault. That is the bottom line message of multiculturalism. George Orwell once said that some ideas are so foolish that only an intellectual could believe them. Multiculturalism is one of those ideas. The intelligentsia burst into indignation or outrage at “gaps” or “disparities” in educational, economic or other outcomes -- and denounce any cultural explanation of these group differences as “blaming the victim.” There is no question that some races or whole nations

have been victimized by others, any more than there is any question that cancers can cause death. But that is very different from saying that deaths can automatically be blamed on cancer. You might think that intellectuals could make that distinction. But many do not. Yet intellectuals see themselves as friends, allies and defenders of racial minorities, even as they paint them into a corner of cultural stagnation. This allows the intelligentsia to flatter themselves that they are on the side of the angels against the forces of evil that are conspiring to keep minorities down. When they cannot come up with hard evidence in any particular case to support this theory today, that just proves to the intelligentsia how fiendishly clever and covert these pervasive efforts to hold down minorities are. Why people with high levels of mental skills and rhetorical talents would tie themselves into knots with such reasoning is a mystery. Perhaps it is just that they cannot give up a social vision that is so flattering to themselves, despite how detrimental it may be to the people they claim to be helping. Multiculturalism, like the

caste system, paints people into the corner where they happened to have been born. But at least the caste system does not claim to benefit those at the bottom. Multiculturalism not only serves the ego interests of intellectuals, it serves the political interests of elected officials, who have every incentive to promote a sense of victimhood, and even paranoia, among groups whose votes they want, in exchange for both material and psychic support. The multicultural vision of the world also serves the interests of those in the media, who thrive on moral melodramas. So do whole departments of ethnic “studies” in academia and a whole industry of “diversity” consultants, community organizers and miscellaneous other race hustlers. The biggest losers in all this are those members of racial minorities who allow themselves to be led into the blind alley of resentment and rage, even when there are broad avenues of opportunity available. And we all lose when society is polarized. (Daily Corinthian columnist Thomas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.)

How the feds are conning you Last week President Obama told ABC News that the current national debt, which is approaching $17 trillion, is “sustainable,” and he does not feel the need to try to balance the budget. Where is Herbert Hoover when we need an economic genius? Just about every honest economist knows that running up massive debt without an effective strategy to improve the economy is flat-out dangerous. If the U.S. dollar collapses, there will be a worldwide depression that will make the recent recession look like an after-party at George Clooney’s house. In the meantime, I can report the following federal expenditures that the president apparently has no problem overseeing: ■ $27 million to the country of Morocco to teach the folks over there how to make pottery.

The National Institutes of Health calls the situation “an issue of high public-health significance.” Sure.

These expenditures are so stupid it hurts. But I also think they are a criminal misuse of our tax dollars. It is estimated that the federal government could save $400 billion a year by eliminating wasteful and redundant programs. There comes a point when folks get the government they deserve. The American people re-elected Barack Obama knowing that he is the biggest spender of all American presidents to date. In fact, Obama has spent more federal money than every president combined up until George W. Bush’s second year in office. And to this day, Obama and the Democratic Party are proud of their spending record. The donkey is the symbol of the Democratic Party. It should be the robosquirrel.

State Briefs

Nation Briefs confirm whether it had information on the use of unmanned drones to kill suspected terrorists. A lower court federal judge had sided with the CIA and dismissed a lawsuit by the American Civil Liberties Union seeking those records. In response to the ACLU’s Freedom of Information Act request, the CIA said that merely confirming the existence of drone records would reveal classified information. But the government subsequently backed off that claim during oral arguments before the appellate court. Friday’s ruling by a three-court panel sends the case back to the lower court, where the agency can argue that the records it has on drones are exempt from FOIA disclosure requirements. The initial refusal to confirm even the existence of a record is a Cold War-era legal defense known as the Glomar response after the Glomar Explorer, a ship built with secret CIA financing to try to raise a Soviet submarine from the ocean floor. The CIA had said that confirming or denying records in this case would reveal “among other things, whether or not the CIA is involved in drone strikes or at least has an intelligence interest in drone strikes.” In his opinion for the panel, Judge Merrick Garland noted that officials from President Barack Obama to John Brennan, then-counterterrorism chief and now the new CIA director, have acknowledged the use of drones by the government. “Given these official acknowledgments that the United States has participated in drone strikes, it is neither logical nor plausible for the CIA to maintain that it would reveal anything not already in the public domain to say that the agency ‘at least has an intelligence interest’ in such strikes,” wrote Garland, an appointee of Democratic President Bill Clinton. The use of drones has come under increased scrutiny recently. Last week, Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, a possible 2016 presidential candidate, used an old-style filibuster of Brennan’s CIA nomination to extract a reply from Attorney General Eric Holder that the president does not have the authority to use a drone to kill a U.S. citizen on American soil if the citizen is not engaged in combat. ACLU Deputy Legal Director Jameel Jaffer, who argued the case in September, called the ruling an important victory. “It requires the government to retire the absurd claim that the CIA’s involvement in the targeted killing program is a secret, and it will

Obama conducts charm campaign WASHINGTON — Over dinner at a fancy hotel a few blocks from the White House, Republican senators wanted to know if President Barack Obama would support a gradual increase in the age of eligibility for Medicare, set at 65 since the program’s inception more than four decades ago. The president hedged, according to several people at the event, recalling the discussion on a costsaving change to Medicare that most if not all leading Democrats in Congress adamantly oppose. One later recalled that Obama “drew no bright line” in opposition, but the lawmaker came away believing that the president “would be very resistant” even if it might unlock a long-sought deal to reduce deficits and an ever-growing federal debt. That lawmaker and some of the others describing what occurred in the meetings spoke on condition of anonymity, noting that the sessions were supposed to be private discussions. The politically fraught moment came at the outset of Obama’s widely publicized recent string of meetings with rank-and-file lawmakers. The unusual commitment of presidential time netted public praise from his most implacable critics and was supplemented by numerous conversations among lawmakers and senior White House aides. No breakthroughs were anticipated and none emerged, and for all the warm talk, House Speaker John Boehner delivered a tart summation. “Republicans want to balance the budget. The president doesn’t. Republicans want to solve our long-term debt problem. The president doesn’t,” he said, while adding it was incumbent on all sides to seek common ground. Across the hours, there were moments of levity, and an expression of gratitude to Arizona Sen. John McCain for his service to the nation on the 40th anniversary of his release from a prisoner of war camp in Vietnam. Evidently the food was pretty good, too. One presidential aide left a meeting with the Senate Republican rank and file toting a carryout bag from lunch that featured lobster salad and blueberry pie with ice cream.

make it more difficult for the government to deflect questions about the program’s scope and legal basis,” he said in a statement. “It also means that the CIA will have to explain what records it is withholding, and on what grounds it is withholding them. ... The public surely has a right to know who the government is killing, and why, and in which countries, and on whose orders.” Todd D. Ebitz, a CIA spokesman, said the agency “does not, as a rule, comment on matters before the courts.”

JACKSON — It appears Mississippi Valley State University is likely to lack a permanent leader for the foreseeable future, even though the College Board has recently named new presidents for two other state universities. The College Board decided not to renew Donna Oliver’s contract at the Itta Bena institution in October, four years after she was named to head the smallest of Mississippi’s eight public universities. But while the board moved quickly on openings at Delta State University and the University of Southern Mississippi, it has been slower in replacing Oliver. “We’re not going to be in a hurry,” trustee Ed Blakeslee said. “We’re going to make sure we get everything worked through. We don’t have a timeline, but it won’t be quick.” The university had been troubled by internal disputes, including a faculty vote of “no confidence” in Oliver, and diverging views among alumni and donors over Oliver’s performance. The College Board had been looking to Oliver to increase enrollment at Valley. Most Mississippi university presidents are under pressure to recruit more students as a way to increase revenue after a drop in state funding. At Valley, about 85 percent of students have come from 10 Mississippi Delta counties, a region where the population is shrinking.

was found in the parking lot at Pike Center Mart. Blood and hair in the trunk led lawmen to suspect Brock had been abducted. Shepherd says a landowner found partial human remains in a wooded area. He declined to identify the landowner, specify the area or say exactly when the discovery took place. Authorities sent the remains for testing. When the results came back, Shepherd said he contacted Brock’s family and spoke with them on Thursday morning. “We’ve never forgotten about this case,” Shepherd said. “We’ve never shoved it to the side and said it’s unsolvable.” Since Brock was a resident of Walthall County and disappeared in McComb, the investigation was a joint effort among McComb police and Pike and Walthall counties’ sheriff’s departments. As early as April 2004, Walthall County Sheriff Duane Dillon said he hoped authorities would make an arrest soon. The search included dragging the Bogue Chitto River near the Highway 570 bridge, an effort conducted by the Pike County Civil Defense Department. But further searches of the area, including a 30-acre wooded area off David Manning Road in northeastern Pike County, yielded no results, even with the help of cadaver-sniffing dogs and helicopters. “We’re going to continue working this case from every direction,” Shepherd said. “It’s our goal to have some conclusion in the future.”

MVSU to continue without leader

Pentagon spends $1 billion on jobless WASHINGTON — Even as it faces budget cuts and forced employee furloughs, the Pentagon is spending nearly a $1 billion a year on a program that sends unemployment checks to former troops who left the military voluntarily. Unemployment Compensation for Ex-Servicemembers, a Labor Department program, is a spinoff of the federalstate unemployment insurance program. The Labor Department says the overall program is meant to help “eligible workers who are unemployed through no fault of their own” such as during layoffs. But eligibility for the military compensation requires only that a person served in uniform and was honorably discharged. In other words, anyone who joins the military and serves for several years, then decides not to re-enlist, is potentially eligible for what could amount to more than 90 weeks of unemployment checks. The program’s cost rose from $300 million in 2003 to $928 million last year. “It eats away at other parts of the budget, and is for people they no longer have control of,” said Air Force veteran Joe Davis, a spokesman for the Veterans of Foreign Wars. “Why are we spending so much on (the program) at a time when we can’t afford to build a new fighter jet?” said Samuel Wright, a former Navy lawyer who helps troops with employment Please see NATION | 6A

government property and two counts of receiving, possessing, concealing, bartering or selling stolen firearms. He pleaded guilty to the count charging him with stealing body armor, ammunition and several guns from a parked FBI vehicle. Eatmon was recently sentenced to serve 40 years on state charges related to a 2011 rape and aggravated assault. He pleaded guilty to committing that crime while he was out on federal bond for allegedly burglarizing the FBI vehicle.

Court to review fondling case ruling JACKSON — The Mississippi Supreme Court will review a ruling that overturned the conviction of a man accused of fondling. David Campbell of Oxford was convicted in September of 2010 of inappropriate contact with a teenager who was living at his home. He was acquitted on a sexual battery count. Court documents say the 16-year-old girl was from Jackson County and was undergoing treatment at Millcreek in Pontotoc. The girl was living with Campbell and his wife. Prosecutors say Campbell was a foster parent to the teenage girl from May 1, 2006 to August 9, 2006. The charges came after an investigation into an allegation of inappropriate contact between the defendant and his foster child during a family visit in Pontotoc. During testimony at Campbell’s trial, a Mississippi Department of Human Services caseworker said the Campbell’s were in the process of being licensed as foster parents when the teenager was allowed to move in with them, but didn’t know if the license was ever granted. In his appeal, Campbell’s attorney argued the state failed to prove he was a person of authority over her, a stipuPlease see STATE | 6A

and other legal issues. The Pentagon is facing across-the-board cuts because of automatic spending reductions that took effect this month. Defense officials and outside experts have become increasingly concerned about the rising cost of the compensation program. And some believe it’s evidence of weaknesses in other programs, such as those designed to help veterans find jobs. Some military experts suspect the availability of the money may be discouraging some veterans from actively looking for work and thus falsely inflating data on their unemployment — data that shows higher joblessness for Iraq and Afghanistan vets than for older ones and for society in general. Navy Lt. Cmdr. Nathan Christensen, a Penta-

gon spokesman, said a factor in the higher costs is the increased use of National Guard and Reserve units over the past decade for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. That is, once they were activated, came home and were deactivated, they were added to the rolls of ex-active duty troops. Another factor could be the recession, which resulted in higher overall national unemployment rates, he said. The program for former military members started under a 1958 law aimed partly at helping troops transition from life in uniform to the private sector. Unlike the larger U.S. unemployment insurance program, there is no paycheck deduction from troops to fund the military one. In the private sector, employers pay a tax to fund compensation checks; in the military program, the

service branches are the employer. Claims are filed with the states. The Labor Department then tallies compensation sent to former military members and sends the bill to their individual service branches, as well as to the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration and U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, where a smaller number of former employees also are covered. Former military members are subject to the same state requirements as others when they apply to a given state for the money. All states have a requirement of some kind that recipients search for work while getting compensation, the Labor Department says. Nearly 120,000 people filed first-time claims for money in the military program over the last budget year, compared

with 71,000 in 2008, the Labor Department says. Well over 515,000 have gotten compensation since 2008. Wright, now director of the law center at the Reserve Officers Association, says the payments “ought to be for people who are actively seeking re-employment — it’s not just free money.” Officials worry, too, about what will happen to costs when the military draws down from its wartime size, sending more troops out of the services. A 2008 analysis for the Pentagon by the RAND Corp. research institution found that the sharp rise in military unemployment payments did not mean the civilian labor market for recent veterans had weakened. The study suggested “a rethinking” of the program and also noted the big increase in reservists called up over the decade.

JACKSON — A defense lawyer is asking a federal judge to dismiss charges against the owner of environmental laboratory accused of falsifying records on industrial wastewater samples. Tennie White, owner of Mississippi Environmental Analytical Laboratories Inc., was indicted Nov. 7 in U.S. District Court in Jackson. She’s charged with making false statements and obstruction. The indictment says Borg Warner Emissions Systems Inc. hired White to test wastewater discharge at its car parts plant in Water Valley. The indictment alleges that White created three reports in 2009 that indicated testing had been done, when it had not. White’s lawyer filed a motion to dismiss on Thursday. The motion says the documents referred to in the indictment are not criminal because they were not signed and not submitted to a government agency.

“What we have here is monetary stimulus vs. fiscal drag, and I think the Fed is winning.” Jim O’Sullivan Chief U.S. economist at High Frequency Economics

Unemployment aid applications slump to five-year low Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Fewer Americans sought unemployment aid last week, reducing the average number of weekly applications last month to a five-year low. The drop shows that fewer layoffs are strengthening the job market. The Labor Department said Thursday that applications fell 10,000 to a seasonally adjusted 332,000. That reduced the four-week average to 346,750, the lowest since the week of March 8, 2008, three months after the Great Recession began. The report “provides further evidence of a gradual strengthening in labor market conditions,” Paul Dales, senior U.S. economist at Capital Economics, said in a note to clients. Investors appeared to view the report as further evidence that job growth and the economy are strengthening. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 64 points in mid-day trading, and the Standard & Poor’s 500 stock index neared its all-time high. Applications for unemployment aid are a proxy for layoffs, and their steady decline signals that companies are laying off fewer and fewer workers. It suggests that companies aren’t worried that business might fall off in the near future. The number of applications for benefits has dropped five times in the past six weeks and has declined 13 percent since mid-November. At the same time, net hiring has picked up. Employers added an average of 200,000 jobs a month from November through February — up from about 150,000 a month in the previous four months. And the unemployment rate reached a four-year low of 7.7 percent in February. During the Great Recession, layoffs spiked, and applications for unemployment benefits peaked at 667,000 in the week that ended March 28, 2009. In a healthy economy, applications usually fluctuate between 300,000 and 350,000. Applications may pick up in coming weeks, though, as across-theboard government spending cuts force many federal agencies and government contractors to lay off or furlough workers. The spending cuts, which took effect March 1, were mandated by a 2011 budget deal. The White House and Congress haven’t been able to reach a deal to reverse them. Bricklin Dwyer, an economist at BNP Paribas, estimates that the government spending cuts will boost applications for unemployment

Still, the economy should generate steady job gains this spring, Dwyer says, even if monthly job growth dips from February’s 236,000 increase. aid by about 15,000 a week in the second half of March and between 15,000 and 20,000 a week in April. Still, the economy should generate steady job gains this spring, Dwyer says, even if monthly job growth dips from February’s 236,000 increase. Jim O’Sullivan, chief U.S. economist at High Frequency Economics, says he thinks the Federal Reserve’s efforts to boost growth by keeping interest rates at record lows should blunt the impact of the government spending cuts. “What we have here is monetary stimulus vs. fiscal drag, and I think the Fed is winning,” O’Sullivan says. So far, employers haven’t been laying off more workers because of higher taxes or government spending cuts. In January, Social Security taxes rose two percentage points. Someone earning $50,000 has about $1,000 less to spend in 2013. A household with two high-paid workers has up to $4,500 less. Higher taxes haven’t prevented Americans from spending more. Retail sales jumped in February by the most in five months, the Commerce Department said Wednesday. Much of the increase reflected higher gas prices. But even excluding the volatile categories of gas, autos and building supply stores, so-called core retail sales rose strongly. Economists were encouraged by the report. Many now expect much faster growth in the January-March quarter. Strong auto sales and a healthy recovery in housing are spurring more hiring and economic growth. Builders started work on the most homes last year since 2008. New-home sales jumped 16 percent in January to the highest level since July 2008. And home prices rose by the most in more than six years in the 12 months that ended in January, according to real estate data provider CoreLogic.

Battling demon of intemperance BY JIMMY REED Guest Columnist

The Mississippi Delta is known for its characters. Just as flatlanders nuance miniscule rainfall differences, ranging from “spits” to “frog drowners,” they also categorize characters, from those with benign idiosyncrasies, to those shockingly short of scruples, to raving lunatics roaming unrestrained among their fellow Alluvians. Everybody in the Delta knows everybody else in the Delta, and everybody knows a few characters, is kin to a mess of them, or IS a character. I’m a Deltan, and folks claim I’m a character. I’m not, although I flocked with a few when I farmed the flat land. One of the strangest Delta characters I knew was Lloyd “Lush” Llewellynn. His jovial red face framed a varicose-veined, bulbous nose and intelligent blue eyes, fixed always in a be-

mused, faraway stare. Even in the Delta’s soup-thick humidity and heat, when gills would serve better than lungs for respiration, he wore heavy, Victorian Era clothes, so old and shabby that Victorians might actually have worn them. He spoke with what he claimed was a Welshman’s accent, but to us sounded more like a Yankee’s Welch affectation. Lush loved beer. When he entered the local watering hole, he tapped his derby with a cane, unknotted a large bandanna, and counted out enough money to buy several quarts of warm Falstaff beer, which he lauded as fine English lager. Lush lived in a tiny Winnebago that listed to starboard. To feed himself and a dozen cats, and maintain an ample amount of Falstaff, he painted. I hired him once to paint a sign on my dad’s cotton gin.

Lush was a gifted artist, but a hopeless alcoholic, who seemed to have materialized out of thin air one day, and dematerialized the same way. Only his caterwauling cats and ramshackle hut remained. We never saw him again. Of talented people whose lives alcohol destroys, Abraham Lincoln once said: “ … if we take habitual drunkards as a class, their heads and their hearts will bear an advantageous comparison with those of any other class. There seems ever to have been a proneness in the brilliant to fall to the demon of intemperance.” Oxford resident Jimmy Reed is a newspaper columnist, author and college professor.

Revelers worldwide mark St. Patrick’s Day BY JENNIFER PELTZ AND VERENA DOBNIK Associated Press

NEW YORK — Crowds cheered and bagpipes bellowed as New York City’s annual St. Patrick’s Day parade kicked off Saturday, and people with a fondness for anything Irish began a weekend of festivities from the Louisiana bayou to Dublin’s Parnell Square. With the holiday itself falling on a Sunday, many celebrations were scheduled instead for Saturday because of religious observances. In New York, the massive parade, which predates the United States, was led by 750 members of the New York Army National Guard. The 1st Battalion of the 69th Infantry has been marching in the parade since 1851. Michael Bloomberg took in his last St. Patrick’s Day parade as mayor, waving to a cheering crowd as snowflakes fell on Fifth Avenue. Marching just behind him was Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny, who presented Bloomberg with a historic Irish teapot earlier. “The Irish are found in every borough, every corner of New York,” Kenny said at a holiday breakfast. “In previous generations they came heartbroken and hungry, in search of new life, new hope; today they come in search of opportunity to work in finance, fashion, film.” Hundreds of thousands like the parade route in New York, cheering the marching bands, dance troupes and politicians. “We’re crazy, the Irish, we’re funny and we talk to everyone,” said 23-year-old Lauren Dawson, of Paramus, N.J., who came to her first St. Patrick’s Day parade. In downtown Chicago, thousands lined the Chicago River and cheered as workers on a boat dumped dye into the water, turning it a bright


“The Irish are found in every borough, every corner of New York. In previous generations they came heartbroken and hungry, in search of new life, new hope; today they come in search of opportunity to work in finance, fashion, film.” Enda Kenny Irish prime minister fluorescent green for at least a few hours in an eye-catching local custom. In a sea of people in green shirts, coats, winter hats, sunglasses and even wigs and beards, 29-year-old Ben May managed to stand out. The Elkhart, Ind., man wore a full leprechaun costume, complete with a tall green hat he had to hold onto in the wind. “I’ve got a little Irish in me, so I’m supporting the cause,” he said. May bought the outfit online to wear to Notre Dame football games. But he figured it was fitting for this occasion too. “I probably will get to drink for free,” he said, after posing for a photograph with a group of women. “That’s what I’m hoping,” said his girlfriend, Angela Gibson. Kenny, who visited Chicago for St. Patrick’s Day last year, was again making the holiday a jumping-off point for an extended trip to the U.S., with stops in Washington and on the West Coast over the ensuing several days. “I will use my visit to promote Ireland’s many strengths and to further reinforce our deep and abiding political and economic relationship with the United States,” Kenny said in a statement this week. He and President Barack Obama were scheduled to meet at the White House on Tuesday and exchange shamrocks, a tradition that

dates to Harry S. Truman’s administration. Obama also is slated to meet separately Tuesday with Peter Robinson, the leader of Northern Ireland’s Catholic-Protestant government. Thousands of revelers gaudily garbed in green crammed the oak-shaded squares and sidewalks of downtown Savannah, Ga., on Saturday, for a celebration that’s a 189-year-old tradition. Led by bagpipers in green kilts, a parade kicked off Saturday morning, hours after customers began lining up at downtown bars. More than 1,000 worshippers also packed the pews of the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist for the Mass that traditionally precedes the parade. Bev Kehayes, of Greensboro, N.C., joined friends near the start of the parade route. She made hats with green feathers and flowers just for the occasion. “It’s good, clean fun. Heaven forbid there’s a little alcohol involved,” said Kehayes, who says she’s missed only three of the celebrations in Savannah in 29 years. In Ireland, Dublin’s five-day St. Patrick’s Day festival was unfolding with a new addition. For the first time, up to 8,000 visitors from around the world were due to march in a so-called people’s parade on Sunday, when Ireland’s capital city also intends hold its usual procession of bands and pageantry.

In Maine, St. Patrick’s Day prompted Gov. Paul LePage to relent on a vow to veto any bill that reached his desk before lawmakers pass his proposal to pay a state debt to hospitals. He signed a measure Friday allowing bars to serve alcohol a few hours earlier than usual, starting at 6 a.m., on the Sunday holiday. About 1,500 miles southwest, the city of Houma, La., was holding its unconventional celebration — an IrishItalian parade, with a celebration that features both Irish cabbage and Italian sausage — on Sunday. The event resumed last year after a 10-year hiatus. In Rolla, Mo., the Missouri University of Science and Technology continued a St. Patrick’s tradition that began in 1908, when students declared that the patron saint of Ireland also was the patron saint of engineers. A slate of events, which included a student portraying St. Patrick being transported downtown on a manure spreader, were to wrap up with a parade Saturday. Annapolis, Md., held its first St. Patrick’s Day parade March 10. A 40-year-old parade tradition took on a sense of renewal March 3 in Belmar, N.J., a shore town that took a heavy blow from Superstorm Sandy. But along with the festivities, in some places, came warnings from police that they would be on the lookout for drunken drivers and other misbehavior. New Jersey Transit officials said alcoholic beverages would be prohibited Saturday on any train between Manhattan and Hoboken, N.J., a nightlife-friendly city across the Hudson River. Transit police arrested 16 people during St. Patrick’s Day last year, including two people who were charged with aggravated assault on two conductors.

When I pulled up to his hovel, he opened the door and wheezed, “Top o’ the mornin’, Guvnuh. By Jove, our appointment slipped me mind. I’ll pop on out in a jiffy.” I asked Lush to paint the gin’s name in calligraphic letters, large enough to be read by truckers coming to pick up cotton bales. He knew how, but couldn’t start; in palsied tremors, his hands shook. “Your Honor, I need to quaff a dram or two to settle me nerves,” he said. “Please advance me enough for a couple of quarts.” When he had swilled the first quart, his eyes focused and his hands became as steady as a surgeon’s. He sketched the lettering without using a stencil, and set to painting. As we drove away, he gulped down the second quart. Artists never look back. Lush didn’t; he knew his handiwork was perfect.

BP seeks to block Gulf spill settlement payments BY MICHAEL KUNZELMAN Associated Press

NEW ORLEANS â&#x20AC;&#x201D; BP sued Friday to block what could be billions of dollars in settlement payouts to businesses over the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill. The London-based oil giant accused the courtappointed administrator for the settlement, Patrick Juneau, of trying to rewrite the terms of the deal. BP said Juneau violated the settlement in the way he used a complex formula to determine the payments to businesses. Last week, BP warned investors that the settlementâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s price tag will be â&#x20AC;&#x153;significantly higherâ&#x20AC;? than initially estimated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Although the ultimate exposure is at this time inestimable, it grows daily and could cost BP billions,â&#x20AC;? the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawyers wrote Friday. U.S District Judge Carl Barbier appointed Juneau and has upheld his decisions for calculating payments. Juneauâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spokesman declined to comment on BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawsuit. Attorneys who worked on the class-action settlement with BP said the payments to businesses were spelled out in the agreement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Simply put, BP undervalued the settlement and underestimated the number of people and businesses that qualify under the objective formulas that BP agreed to,â&#x20AC;? attorneys Steve Herman and Jim Roy said in a statement. BP said Juneau made decisions in January that expose the company to fictitious losses that were never contemplated in the settlement. Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s court filing asked Barbier to block payments to any businesses whose awards are part of the January decisions. As an alternative, BP asked to block payments to businesses in certain industries, including agriculture, construction, professional services, real estate, manufacturing and retail. Before Barbier ruled last week, BP had argued that Juneauâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interpretation of the settlement would lead to â&#x20AC;&#x153;absurd resultsâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;false posi-

Boeing: 787 flights to restart in weeks Associated Press

TOKYO â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Boeing said Friday it sees commercial flights of its grounded 787 jets resuming â&#x20AC;&#x153;within weeksâ&#x20AC;? even though it has not pinpointed the cause of battery overheating. Boeing Co. Chief Project Engineer Michael Sinnett outlined a fix centered on a new design for the lithium-ion battery system that has layers of safeguards to prevent overheating and measures to contain malfunctions.

tives.â&#x20AC;? The judge said the settlement anticipated that â&#x20AC;&#x153;such results would sometimes occur.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Objective formulas, the possibility of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;false positives,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and giving claimants flexibility to choose the most favorable time periods are all consequences BP accepted when it decided to buy peace through a global, class-wide resolution,â&#x20AC;? Barbier wrote. BP estimated a year ago that it would spend roughly $7.8 billion to resolve tens of thousands of claims covered by the settlement. It revised its estimate earlier this year, saying it expected to pay $8.5 billion, but now says it canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give a reliable estimate. Barbier also is presiding over a trial designed to determine the causes of BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s April 2010 well blowout and assign percentages of fault to the

companies involved in the disaster, which killed 11 workers and spawned the

nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worst offshore oil spill. The trial will enter its fourth week Monday.

Coming Up In The Daily Corinthian Our three-section, over 32-page special edition full of feature stories and information about the people who know and the place you call home has been in the works for over a month. Watch for it coming Tuesday.

Half brother creates tense visits DEAR ABBY: I was divorced when my son was 9. He’s now 24. My ex-wife married the man she had been having an affair with and they have a 12-year-old son. I am also remarried and in a good place in my life. For the past two years, my son has brought his half brother to our beach house for a weekend of fun. We honored this request and enjoy time with our son, but it is difficult having his half brother in my home. It brings up emotions I thought I had put behind me years ago. I do not want these visits to continue, and I need to communicate this. I’d like to have an adult conversation with my son to explain the situation. How much do I tell him about my emotional reasons without being negative about his mom? I also don’t think he should have to carry the news to my ex or disappoint a 12-year-old. Should I send a simple note to her and explain that we will no longer host her son? — NEEDS THE RIGHT WORDS DEAR NEEDS: By all means write your ex. Explain that entertaining her son brings up emotions you would rather not have to relive. It’s not the boy’s fault that he’s the flesh-and-blood symbol of his mother’s infidelity, but you don’t have to have him there if you don’t want to. If you would like to have a manto-man talk with your son, go

ahead and do it. He’s an adult. Tell him pretty much the same thing -- that having the boy over Abigail is painful you and, Van Buren for therefore, you prefer Dear Abby the beach house visits stop. You are entitled to your feelings, and your son is old enough to appreciate them. DEAR ABBY: I’m a widow, as are many of my friends these days. Widowhood is difficult. If you’re not prepared, it can be horrible. That’s why I’d like to urge women to learn to take care of themselves because the odds are they will be alone sooner or later after the age of 50. Some suggestions: 1. If you haven’t already, learn to drive. 2. Learn to pump gas and how to check your tires and the fluids in your car. 3. Learn to use a few basic tools and do home repairs. 4. Pay attention to financial matters such as balancing a checkbook. 5. Know where your records are, what’s in them and what information you will need for taxes.

6. Buy a shredder and shred unnecessary papers. 7. Make friends with other women. If you don’t, life gets lonely. 8. Be courageous and do what you need to do to be happy. 9. Start to simplify your home. It will free your mind from clutter and, if necessary, allow you to move to smaller quarters. 10. Let your children lead their lives, lead your own and present a cheerful face to the world! —KATHLEEN IN DULUTH, MINN. DEAR KATHLEEN: Those are excellent suggestions, to which I would add how important it is to consult a CPA and a lawyer if your spouse hasn’t already shown you what you need to know. A HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY TO MY IRISH READERS: May you always have A sunbeam to warm you Good luck to charm you And a sheltering angel, so nothing can harm you Laughter to cheer you Faithful friends near you And whenever you pray, heaven to hear you. (Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.)

Horoscopes BY HOLIDAY MATHIS As any good art director knows, much depends on how you frame things. Mercury has been moving backward in Pisces, encouraging us to envision the past differently and find a helpful, empowering viewpoint. Now Mercury punctuates the Irish celebration of luck and life by ending his retrograde and moving forward in good faith. ARIES (March 21-April 19). The need to belong to something greater than yourself will tug at you now. Ambivalence on the part of others only serves to inspire you to act purposefully. Someone must lead the way. Why not you? TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll have a sense that all is well. Sure, there are conflicts. But they seem both natural and inevitable. Whatever the reason they came into being, they can always be used in a positive way. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your past pops into your mind and begs for attention. You won’t regret pausing for a chat, or better yet, take your past to tea.

Revisiting will bring you a new perspective on what happened. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You know how to spot a bad situation and avoid it or, if it’s unavoidable, breeze right through it with minimal damage. You’ll keep your attachments and expectations to a minimum. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Inside you there is a deep reservoir of determination and strength. You won’t need it now, but just knowing that it’s there might calm you and keep you on purpose throughout the day. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). This day will not come with an instruction manual or a checklist, but your clear objectives will serve to organize the activities. It becomes obvious what has to happen next in order to get to the finish line of a goal. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You don’t have to settle in relationships. You can have what you want if you’re willing to do what it takes. You might have to learn a new way of communicating to get there. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll want to give to someone,

but if the gift is unnecessary, it will only cause more problems. Wait to see what is really wanted and, more importantly, needed. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Just because you find exceptions to a rule doesn’t make the rule wrong. Every rule has exceptions. But if the rule makes your life better and more organized, uphold it regardless of its inconstancy. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). In order to be part of the fun, you have to forget about what you look and sound like. Succumb to the wildness of your human animal being. Self-consciousness has no place there. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Move. Knowing what you’re doing is not a requirement. You’ll figure it out as you go through a process of trial and error. It won’t always be pretty, but you’ll be better for the effort. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You know one side of a person quite well, while being fully aware that there is another side that could remain a mystery forever. You’re curious but respectful.

Ole Miss beats Vandy 64-52 in SEC tourney BY TERESA M. WALKER Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Mississippi Rebels can breathe much easier on the edge of coach Andy Kennedy’s first NCAA tournament berth in his seventh season. Now they are setting their sights on a Southeastern Conference tournament championship first. Marshall Henderson scored 23 points as Mississippi beat Vanderbilt 64-52 Saturday in the SEC tournament semifinals, putting the Rebels into the title game for the first time since 2001. “We know we made the NCAA tournament now,” Henderson said. “If we didn’t, that would the biggest snub ever ... We know we made it. We’re in the championship. We might as well win it and get us a fat ring.” The third-seeded Rebels (258) came here needing wins to sharpen their postseason resume and finally reach the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2002. Now they will play No. 13 Florida, a 61-51 winner over Alabama, in Sunday’s championship game, where the winner advances to the NCAA tournament automatically. Kennedy ticked off the Rebels’ record and 14 SEC wins, including four straight and two here in Nashville, while pointing out

Ole Miss Assistant Basketball Coach Sergio Rouco talks to the team during a media timeout during the Jan 19 game against Arkansas. The Rebels will play Florida in the SEC Basketball Tournament Finals today at noon. not many teams still are playing. “So I feel pretty confident about our opportunity to get the albatross from around the neck for this program as it relates to the NCAA tournament,” Kennedy said. Senior Reginald Buckner also had 15 points, and senior Murphy Holloway added 12 for Ole Miss. The Rebels now have won six of seven overall. “There’s very few times in your life that you have a chance

to compete for a championship, so that’s where I want their focus to be,” Kennedy said. “I want them to play free and loose and understanding that on Sunday that we have the makings of a party. But on Saturday, you have a chance to do something special that no one can take away from you the rest of your life.” No. 10 seeded Vanderbilt (1617), the defending tournament champion, lost for only the second time in eight games. Ke-

dren Johnson had a team-high 12 points. Kennedy, the Rebels’ winningest coach, has at least 20 victories in four straight seasons and became the fifth SEC coach to win 20 in six of his first seven seasons. But another missed NCAA tournament could have jeopardized his job security. Vandy coach Kevin Stallings immediately congratulated Kennedy. Please see SEC | 11A

Alabama falls 61-51 to No. 13 Florida in SEC BY STEVE MEGARGEE Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Alabama couldn’t leave its fate out of the NCAA tournament selection committee’s hands. The Crimson Tide will wait nervously to learn whether it will earn an atlarge bid after squandering a 10-point, secondhalf lead Saturday and falling 61-51 to No. 13 Florida in a Southeastern Conference tournament semifinal. The top-seeded Gators (26-6) advanced to the championship game Sunday. Alabama (2112), the tournament’s No. 4 seed, will learn Sunday whether it’s included in the 68-team NCAA tournament field after failing to earn the SEC’s automatic bid. “That’s why they call them invitational tournaments,” Alabama coach Anthony Grant said. “We had an opportunity here to try to compete for a championship. Didn’t get it done. That’s all that was promised. After that, we have to wait and see.” Most mock brack-

ets had Alabama on the wrong side of the NCAA tournament bubble at the start of the week. Alabama went 12-6 in conference play during the regular season but hurt its cause by going 1-5 in December, including home nonconference losses to Mercer and Tulane. “I’ll just go to sleep, wake up tomorrow and see what they choose,” Alabama guard Trevor Lacey said. “Whatever they choose, we go from there.” Held scoreless for the first 25 minutes, Kenny Boynton had 11 straight points during a critical 15-0 run that put Florida ahead for good. Boynton said he benefited from Gators coach Billy Donovan’s halftime message to him. The senior guard’s second-half surge helped Florida end its seasonlong frustration in close games. “He challenged me to come out and play with confidence,” Boynton said. “Honestly he did challenge me, and I think I tried to step up to it.”

Boynton scored all 16 of his points during a 7-minute span. Patric Young had 13 points and nine rebounds for the Gators. Mike Rosario added 10 points. Trevor Releford scored 12 points, and Nick Jacobs and Lacey each added 11 for Alabama. Alabama led 37-27 with 16:05 remaining before Florida reeled off 15 straight points over the next 5 minutes. In the lone regular-season meeting between the two teams, Florida rallied from eight points down in the final 12½ minutes to win 64-52 on March 2 in Gainesville. After Alabama built its 10-point lead, Lacey and teammate Andrew Steele started thinking back to that regular-season loss to Florida. “Me and Andrew were talking about it on the bench,” Lacey said. “When we went up 10, we were talking (that) we need to keep what we were doing, keep it on them, keep attacking them and just trying to make plays and just try-

ing not to let what happened (on March 2 happen again).” That 64-52 result on March 2 represented Florida’s narrowest margin of victory all season before Saturday. The Gators entered Saturday leading the nation in scoring margin (plus18.9), but they’re 0-5 in games decided by six points or fewer. Saturday’s game featured the SEC’s two best scoring defenses, and it started out as a defensive struggle. Seven minutes into the game, Florida led 6-2. But after missing four of its first five shots and committing four turnovers in the first 5½ minutes, Alabama’s offense found a rhythm. The Tide shot 55 percent (11 of 20) in the first half against a Florida team that hadn’t allowed anyone to shoot 50 percent or better this season. The Tide stayed hot early in the second half and extended its lead to 37-27 when Releford sank two free throws with 16:05 remaining.

“We were playing good defense,” Young said. “They were knocking down some tough twos, some tough threes. But we knew they can’t hold that up the whole (game) because they haven’t been doing that the whole year. It’s been tough for them to score in the halfcourt the whole season.” That’s when Boynton took over the game. First, the senior guard made a pair of free throws to cut Alabama’s lead to 37-31. Next, he made a driving basket. Then, Boynton sank a 3-pointer. He followed that up with a fast-break layup that gave Florida the lead. Boynton closed this stunning flurry by going into the paint and making a shot off the glass that extended Florida’s advantage to 40-37 with 12:02 remaining. “My teammates found me in transition,” Boynton said. “Basically, I didn’t get more aggressive or anything. The floor just opened up more.”

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not a bracketology fan, but I would assume that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re safely in the NCAA tournament,â&#x20AC;? Stallings said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And they should be, in my opinion.â&#x20AC;? The Rebels played without point guard Jarvis Summers, who hit his head hard in Friday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s win against Missouri. He is day-to-day with a concussion. Not that they needed Summers as they wore down Vanderbilt, with the Commodores playing their third game in as many days along with going to class the past two days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had two or three guys that were just a quart low on energy,â&#x20AC;? Stallings said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t because they wanted to be. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t because they chose to be. They just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the same kind of pep in their step that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d had in days past.â&#x20AC;? Ole Miss outshot Vandy 44 percent (22 of 50) to 33.9 percent (19 of 56) as the Commodores went a chilly 6 of 30 behind the arc. The Rebels also finished with a 41-36 edge on the boards. Ole Miss didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t grab its first lead until the opening minute of the second half, but the Rebels took control with a 15-2 run a few minutes later. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We started off kind of slow,â&#x20AC;? Buckner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We kind of had a sense of urgency in the second half that they would get kind of tired and we would take advantage of it.â&#x20AC;? Vanderbilt was up 3430 off a fast-break layup by Dai-Jon Parker with 15:13 remaining. Then Henderson got the Rebels going with a 3. He added another jumper for the fourth and final tie at 36. Buckner then scored on a three-point play. By the time Buckner hit two free throws with 9:10 left, Ole Miss had its biggest lead yet at 45-36. Ole Miss led by as much as 58-40 on a dunk by Buckner with 3:20 to go. Vandy, which averaged 10 made 3-pointers in winning its first two tournament games, missed its first 10 to start the second half. Johnson hit the 11th with 2:07 left to cap a quick seven points for the Commodores, except it was too late. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It might have had something to do with us not shooting the ball as good as weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re used to shooting it,â&#x20AC;? Johnson said of playing three games in three days.

Parris Island leader says women can handle combat BY SUSANNE M. SCHAFER Associated Press

PARRIS ISLAND, S.C. — The first female Marine Corps general in charge of its tough-as-nails basic training site on Parris Island says she’s confident women in the Corps will be able to handle combat. Brig. Gen. Loretta Reynolds says the Pentagon’s lifting of the combat exclusion against women earlier this year means commanders will be able to “just use the talent that they have. Just use it where they need it. That’s awesome.” Reynolds was the first woman to command a Marine base in a combat zone when she was put in charge of Camp Leatherneck in Afghanistan in 2010. As head of the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force’s headquarters group, she oversaw the

base in Helmand province that grew to house 20,000 Marines. She also commanded a communications battalion in Iraq from 2004 to 2005 in battle-scarred Fallujah. Now, the Marine Corps has entrusted her with training all its women and nearly half its men. She said young Marines aren’t as concerned about gender as they are about a commander’s ability to lead. “Anytime you’re going to take your Marines into harm’s way, they are looking for leadership that is calm, assertive, sure of themselves,” Reynolds said in her first extended interview since the ban was lifted. “And quite honestly, I don’t think that some of these young Marines care if it’s a male or a female. They just want to be properly led.”

Reynolds said she doesn’t think the type of basic training both male and female recruits endure on the swampy, insect-filled island outside Beaufort will change much, given the Pentagon’s lifting of the ban. “We already work them pretty hard,” she said. “We think we give them a solid foundation.” As one of only two basic training sites for the Marines, Parris Island holds near-legendary status in the branch’s lore. After 12 weeks of arduous training, about 17,000 men and 3,000 women graduate from the tough-love of some 604 drill instructors who determine whether the recruits are worthy of pinning on the Eagle, Globe and Anchor emblem worn by Marines. “What we’re looking for here is character, intellect and potential to carry

forth our legacy,” Reynolds said. In January, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta lifted the so-called combat exclusion that kept women from serving in units that engage the enemy, such as the infantry, tank and special forces units of the Army and Marine Corps. Their leaders, the service chiefs, have yet to determine exactly what the physical standards are for those jobs, and some roles may still exclude women. Minimum physical requirements for many hard-core combat jobs had never been established, and the effort to come up with them is still in under way, Reynolds pointed out. The Corps has proposed adapting its twiceyearly physical fitness test to require that women complete at least three

chin-ups, a standard that men must currently meet. Data is being collected to see whether the standard is appropriate. In the past decade, men and women have found themselves fighting sideby-side when combat has overtaken support units once considered behind combat lines. More than 150 women have been killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. About 7 percent of Marines are female compared to about 14 percent overall for the armed forces. Reynolds is one of the two active-duty female general officers in the Marine Corps. There are also two other female generals in the Marine Corps Reserve. Pausing from training on a recent day, recruit Jennifer Martinez of Greenville, Texas, says she followed her father and grandfather into the military, although they both served in the Air Force. The 18-year-old said she thinks she could serve in a combat zone. “Boot camp has prepared you for everything,” said Martinez. “It’s prepared you mentally, physically, emotionally. Especially with the drill instructors. They do a great job of yelling.” Overseeing one company of female recruits and drill instructors, 1st Sgt. Rena Bruno says she commanded men during a deployment to Iraq. The petite 110-pound veteran of 13-years in uniform said that as a logistics manager, she dealt with dangerous convoy duty and learned “to hold my pistol a little closer to my

body.” “My Marines were looking at me to guide them and ensure their safety. There was no time to really question that,” Bruno said of being a female commander. Bruno said women have to train for the challenges, including upper body workouts so they could pull another Marine out of harm’s way, climb up a rope or carry battle armor and weaponry. “We are focusing more on the whole upper body because we are going to be required to do pullups,” Bruno said. “So a lot of our PT (physical training) sessions are geared toward that.” And can she do pullups? “Guaranteed, I can get up on a pull bar and knock out eight, very easy for me,” she said. Told of Bruno’s comments, Reynolds lauded the varied roles women have played on the battlefield. “It’s not all kicking down doors. It’s a lot about ensuring the security of the locals. It’s a lot of the counter-insurgency missions,” that require information female Marines can glean from locals that the males cannot, the general said. And even the 6-foot, fit and trim Reynolds, who played basketball at the Naval Academy and still goes on early morning runs with her recruits, is preparing for the proposed new standards. “I’m not ashamed to tell you I can’t do a pull-up yet, but I’m working on it!” the 48-year-old Reynolds said with a laugh.

SAN FRANCISCO — They’re called national security letters and the FBI issues thousands of them a year to banks, phone companies and other businesses demanding customer information. They’re sent without judicial review and recipients are barred from disclosing them. On Friday, a federal judge in San Francisco declared the letters unconstitutional, saying the secretive demands for customer data violate the First Amendment. The government has failed to show that the letters and the blanket nondisclosure policy “serve the compelling need of national security,” and the gag order creates “too large a danger that speech is being unnecessarily restricted,” U.S. District Judge Susan Illston wrote. She ordered the FBI to stop issuing the letters, but put that order on hold for 90 days so the U.S. Department of Justice can pursue an appeal to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The DOJ said it is reviewing the decision. FBI counter-terrorism agents began issuing the letters after Congress passed the USA Patriot Act in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. The case arises from a lawsuit that lawyers with the Electronic Frontier Foundation filed in 2011 on behalf of an unnamed telecommunications company that received an FBI demand for customer information. “We are very pleased that the court recognized the fatal constitutional shortcomings of the NSL statute,” EFF lawyer Matt Zimmerman said. “The government’s gags have truncated the public de-

bate on these controversial surveillance tools. Our client looks forward to the day when it can publicly discuss its experience.” Illston wrote that she was also troubled by the limited powers judges have to lift the gag orders. Judges can eliminate the gag order only if they have “no reason to believe that disclosure may endanger the national security of the United States, interfere with a criminal counter-terrorism, or counterintelligence investigation, interfere with diplomatic relations, or endanger the life or physical safety of any person.” That provision also violated the Constitution because it blocks meaningful judicial review. Illston isn’t the first federal judge to find the letters troubling. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York also found the gag order unconstitutional, but allowed the FBI to continue issuing them if it made changes to its system such as notifying recipients they can ask federal judges to review the letters. Illston ruled Friday that it’s up to Congress, and not the courts, to tinker with the letters. In 2007, the Justice Department’s inspector general found widespread violations in the FBI’s use of the letters, including demands without proper authorization and information obtained in nonemergency circumstances. The FBI has tightened oversight of the system. The FBI made 16,511 national security letter requests for information regarding 7,201 people in 2011, the latest data available. The FBI uses the letters to collect unlimited kinds of sensitive, private information like financial and phone records.

Gen. Thomas W. Sweeny, a true son of Erin There was some bad luck in store for Tom at the Battle of Cerro Gordo and he took a painful bullet in the groin. It was the start of a bad habit. In December of ’47, during the Battle of Churubusco, Tom was wounded again, this time in the right arm by a musket ball that shattered the bone above the elbow and resulted in the amputation of the arm.


Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I have a few drops of Irish blood in my veins thanks to my 3rd greatgrandfather, Tim Courtney, who came across the pond in the century before last. At our house we celebrate an Americanized version of St. Paddy’s Day. Nita fixes corned beef and cabbage and we watch John Wayne in “The Quiet Man.” The fight scene between Sean Thornton and Squire “Red” Will Danaher is pure blarney, but I do love it. While John Wayne is fun to watch, let me tell you the story of a real fighting Irishman, Thomas William Sweeny. Tom Sweeny was born in County Cork on Christmas Day, 1820. His father William died when Tom was just a lad and his mother Honora was unable to make ends meet in British occupied Ireland. In 1832 the family took a boat from Liverpool, headed for a new life in America. Family lore has it that young Thomas was swept over the side of the ship and spent half an hour in the frigid North Atlantic waters till he was rescued. Tom went to school in New York and later took a job at Gould and Banks, a printing company that specialized in law books. When he was 22 he joined a militia unit known as the Baxter Blues. The Mexican War broke out in 1846 and the Blues were mustered in as Company A, 2nd New York Volunteers. Tom was a 2nd Lieutenant by then and his regiment was assigned to the army under Gen. Winfield Scott. There was some bad luck in store for Tom at the Battle of Cerro Gordo and he took a painful bullet in the groin. It was the start of a bad habit. In December of ’47, during the Battle of Churubusco, Tom was wounded again, this time in the right arm by a musket ball that shattered the bone above the elbow and resulted in the amputation of the arm. For most men this would have signaled the end of a military career, but not Tom. He may have been unable to return to his typesetting job but, as a newspaper noted, “Uncle Sam kindly recognized the hero stuff behind that empty sleeve with a commission in the regular army.” For the next twelve years he fought Indians

Brigadier General Thomas W. Sweeny on the Great Plains and in California. In one of many such fights he took an ugly arrow wound in the neck. He was finally promoted to Captain just weeks before the Civil War broke out and he was sent off to command the U.S. Arsenal at St. Louis. It was a tricky assignment as thousands of Confederate sympathizers threatened to storm the arsenal and seize the cache of weapons. He held them at bay with a single company of soldiers, threatening to blow the place sky high if he was attacked. In May of 1861 he was promoted to Brigadier General of Missouri Volunteers. He fought at the Battle of Carthage and again at Wilson’s Creek where he took a third bullet, this time in the thigh. When he recovered from the wound his temporary general’s commission with the State of Missouri had expired. Tom then accepted the position as Colonel of the 52nd Illinois Infantry. The one-armed Irishman led the 52nd at Fort Donelson and then, just prior to the Battle of Shiloh, he was placed at the head of a brigade of six

regiments. During the fight he was on the far right of the “Sunken” Road (it wasn’t really a sunken road) and saw as much action as anyone. His horse was hit seven times and Tom, who seemed to attract bullets, was hit yet again, this time in the left arm. He managed to lead his men to safety only minutes before the Hornet’s Nest was surrounded and then passed out from loss of blood. When he recovered from his wound his brigade had been given to Brig. Gen. Pleasant Hackleman and Tom was back in command of the old 52nd. At the Battle of Corinth Col. Sweeny’s regiment was on the far right of the Union line inside the old line of Confederate earthworks. (The 52nd Illinois’ position was on the high ground right where the Hwy 45 weigh station is today). The boys from the Prairie State were not heavily engaged but were forced to fall back to the White House field where they were soon in the thick of it. In the midst of the desperate fight General

Hackleman was mortally wounded and Tom was thrust back into brigade command. The First Brigade was fighting for its life but the men in ranks were all veterans of Shiloh and each man toed the line. They were firing so fast that the barrels of their rifles became too hot to touch and several officers told Tom that cartridges were exploding before they could be rammed home. “Continue the fire, if necessary, until the guns burst,” was his answer. The line was stabilized when the brigade of “Fighting Joe” Mower came alongside and helped stop the final Confederate attack. The next day Sweeny’s brigade was placed in the Union line just to the left of Battery Powell. (Roughly from 3rd and Taylor, across the front lawn of First Baptist Church, to the corner of Main and Polk). The fighting which broke out about 10 a.m. was every bit as intense as it had been the day before. At the height of the battle Sweeny’s ranks gave way and fell back over 50 yards where he worked

like a madman to patch up the broken line. The second line not only held but soon counterattacked and retook all of the lost ground, driving the Southerners from the field. His horse was shot from underneath him and he was hit by a bullet in the left leg, but the force of the minie ball had been spent and he came away with no more than a bruise. In 1863 Tom was promoted to Brig. General, again, and spent most of the year in garrison duty in Tennessee. The easy life ended in the spring of ’64 when the campaign to take Atlanta began. He was then at the head of a division and led it with great success in a number of fights in Georgia where he was given the nickname “Fighting Tom.” But there was bad blood between Sweeny and his boss Major General Grenville Dodge, the commander of the 16th Corps. On a hot July evening things came to a head in Sweeny’s tent when Dodge came to visit with another division commander, English soldier-of-fortune Gen. John Fuller. Fuller had led the brigade which had defended Battery Robinett in Corinth two years before, but being an Englishman he was not exactly friends with Irish Tom Sweeny. There was probably too much alcohol consumed and words became shouts. Shouting led to cussing and I will refrain from repeating what the soldiers outside the tent heard. In the flash of an eye the one-armed Irishman was duking it out with two able- bodied men and he was having the best of it when the three men were pulled apart. Of course, there was a court martial. Tom was brought up on a host of charges, but he beat them all and was acquitted. Unfortunately, his division was given to another and he spent the rest of the

war on garrison duty in Nashville. The end of the war did not take the fight out of “Fighting Tom,” however. Sweeny was a member of the Fenian Brotherhood, an organization intent on invading Canada to force the British to end their occupation of Ireland. He resigned from the U.S. Army and because of his military experience Tom was elected the Secretary of War by the Fenian Senate. There were thousands of veteran Irish soldiers recently discharged from the Union Army and they actually had a fair chance of achieving their goals. They had an abundant supply of arms and ammunition and there were plenty of government officials willing to look the other way as England had been more than willing to help the Confederacy during the late war. Tom devised a threepronged attack into Canada and was in Buffalo, New York when the plan fell apart. The U.S. Army arrived to put a stop to the caper and Sweeny was placed under arrest and once again put on trial. With the threat of the invasion over, the government had no desire to enflame the Irish population of the country. All of the conspirators, including “Fighting Tom,” were released. Rather than the outcast you might have thought, Tom was welcomed back to the U.S. Army with open arms and for the third time was given a commission as a brigadier general. In 1870 the aging Irish warrior retired from the army and put his fighting days behind. Tom had been hit by no less than five bullets and an arrow but passed away quietly in his home on Long Island at the age of 71. Erin Go Bragh!

The story behind Tishomingo’s Colleges, theaters join to create own Sprouse Motor Company new plays about the Civil War Editor’s Note: As told by Inez Sprouse Patterson; used previously by June Bullard in Old Tishomingo Traces. When I was small, my dad Milton Sprouse Sr. had a motor company in Tishomingo, Miss. He sold only Ford cars. The one he loved to drive had to be started with a crank and he called it a touring car. Most of the time the crank would kick him when it started and did he hollow and hop around. He would let the top down and my grandmother, Nancy T. Scruggs Sprouce’s hat always blew off. Dad would pull over and walk back to get it. He told her to put more pins in it. She did but still it blew off. One day he got a long, narrow scarf and tied it on. That solved the

problem. Later, we moved to Iuka. Dad had a service station on corner of highways 25 and 72 across the street f r o m Deaton’s Service Station. RaNae M o t h e r Vaughn had a sandwich Historically shop in Speaking the back of dad’s station. Miss Myrtle, as she was called, had a special chicken salad she made. She would go out to the chicken yard, pick out one, grab it and ring its neck a few times, then chop off the head. She kept hot water ready to dip that sucker in so she

could pick every feather off. Then she would set a sheet of newspaper on fire and singe the fuzzy feathers off, cut it up and cook it. She always kept the pulley bone for my brother and me to put under the table to pull apart. Whoever got the short piece would have a happy day. My brother Milton Jr. and I started to school in Iuka. On my first lesson I got a zero and Bud got a 100. Mother was mad at me but I told her his grade was only a zero and one more than I got, but she walloped me anyway.

WASHINGTON — Four major universities are joining theater companies in Boston, Baltimore, Washington and Atlanta in a project to commission new plays, music and dance compositions about the Civil War and its lasting legacy 150 years later. The National Civil War Project was announced recently in Washington and will involve programming over the next two years to mark the 150th anniversary of the war between the North and the South. Beyond commissioning new works, organizers plan for university faculty to integrate the arts into their academic programs on campus. Under the program,

Harvard University will partner with the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Mass.; the University of Maryland’s Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center will join CENTERSTAGE in Baltimore; George Washington University is working with Arena Stage in Washington, and Atlanta’s Alliance Theatre will join Emory University. Each collaboration will evoke unique perspectives on the Civil War in each region. At Harvard, a new piece called “The Boston Abolitionists” about the abolitionist movement and the trial of a fugitive slave will be performed in May. Separately, Matthew Aucoin, an assistant conductor at the Metropolitan Opera, is

using Walt Whitman’s poetry about being a medic to develop a new opera. In Atlanta, Alliance Theatre and Emory will develop a new theatrical production of U.S. Poet Laureate Natasha Trethewey’s Pulitzer Prize-winning book “Native Guard,” with a workshop planned for 2014. It recounts the story of a black Civil War regiment assigned to guard white Confederate soldiers on Ship Island off Mississippi’s Gulf Coast. Arena Stage Artistic Director Molly Smith, who helped guide the project, said this is a chance to reevaluate the Civil War and consider the issues that still resonate in American life.

Turkey hunters need to take part in annual survey Each year since 1996 the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks has relied on a dedicated group of turkey hunters to participate in its Spring Gobbler Hunting Survey David (SGHS). T h e Green S G H S Outdoors provides the MDWFP with a comprehensive overview of the well-being of Mississippi’s turkey flock, which helps biologists to

better understand trends in turkey abundance, gobbling activity, hunter effort, harvest rates, age structure and the characteristics of harvested birds. In the process of the survey, hunters take on the task of being the agency’s eyes and ears in surveying the state’s wild turkey population. Participating individuals are asked to record all they see, hear, and harvest during their springtime hunts, and then provide the information to MDWFP wildlife biologists. “This survey is unparalleled in the Southeast,”

A general drawing will be open to all hunters who participate in the SGHS and report data to the MDWFP. After signing up, volunteers will receive a data collection booklet in the mail, and will have a chance to win one of two shotguns once their observation booklet is returned to the MDWFP. said Adam Butler, biologist with the MDWFP Wild Turkey Program. “Eastern wild turkeys are nearly impossible to ef-

ficiently survey at a statewide or regional scale, but with the cooperation of hundreds of turkey hunters each year, we

have a better handle on the trends in our turkey population than we do for most other resident game species. I can’t thank our hunters enough for what they give us.” All turkey hunters, regardless of their ability or experience, are encouraged to participate in this year’s survey. A general drawing will be open to all hunters who participate in the SGHS and report data to the MDWFP. After signing up, volunteers will receive a data collection booklet in the mail, and will have a chance to win one of two shotguns once

their observation booklet is returned to the MDWFP. The prize shotguns will be donated by the Foundation for Mississippi Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks and the Mississippi Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation. An additional drawing will be held for those hunters who recruit a new survey participant for the 2013 season. (Daily Corinthian columnist David Green is an Alcorn County resident.

Unique venues give weddings charm BY SUSAN COLLINS-SMITH MSU Ag Communications

Amy Michelle Roach, Justin Cole Smith

Sunday, March 17, 2013

JACKSON — With a wide range of venue types, Mississippi couples can tie the knot in the setting of their dreams. Beth Bell, child and family development area agent with Mississippi State University’s Extension Service in Tallahatchie County, said couples are choosing less traditional venues for many different reasons. Some couples anticipate more guests than can be accommodated at a small church or have demanding schedules that spare no time to plan a wedding. Other couples simply want a one-of-a-kind experience. Every couple can find a venue that meets their needs and budget with a little research.

“Couples should meet with the event coordinator to tour the facility.” Bell said. “Talk with them in detail about what services and amenities they offer, and make sure it is within the budget.” Non-traditional venues usually offer a combination of services and features that can include planning, decorating and catering. Many also make recommendations for vendors that provide the services not included in the venue’s amenities, such as photographers, salons and florists. “Many venues offer packages but will customize those packages to fit individual tastes,” Bell said. “Couples should be specific about their preferences when they contact the venue. Talk with them about the colors, music, food and decorations that you would like

to have and ask what is included in the price of the venue rental.” Most venues will work with each couple to create a special day full of one-of-a-kind memories. Michael May, owner of Lazy Acres Plantation in Chunky, is working toward becoming an all-inclusive wedding venue. He recently added Plantation Hall, a 7,000 square-foot banquet facility, to accommodate special events at his 120acre multi-seasonal agritourism business that includes a Christmas tree farm, pumpkin patch and corn maze. “We do not offer a cookie-cutter approach. Our goal is to work with our clients to achieve the result they have in mind,” May said. “In one of our upcoming weddings, the bride wants her wedding in an

open field. Guests who arrive for the wedding will be shuttled by tractor and a 40-foot cotton wagon to the site of the ceremony. The wedding party will arrive on another wagon, and the bride will follow in a carriage,” May said. Carol Jones, event planner at Monmouth Historic Inn in Natchez, works with brides all year long to plan a wide variety of weddings, from small and intimate to large and elaborate. “All of our weddings are unique,” Jones said. “We recently had a couple travel from Japan to get married at Monmouth, and their celebration included a New Orleans jazz band. “Every bride has her own perception of what her wedding day should be, and we help them make it a reality,” she said.

meanness out of us. Mother planted a golden delicious apple tree at the back of our house near the kitchen window. The first year it bore fruit only one apple and I believe it was the prettiest one I ever saw. It seemed to me everything was my brother’s. But since there were two of us, I convinced myself that half of it was mine and he should not tell me when to eat my half. Mother and Bud went to town and I got a ladder on back side away from the window, climbed up, holding the stem to the limb, I ate my half on the tree. Next morning mother said in a few days Bud can eat his apple. I sat real still. She didn’t know that his half was shrinking already. The day she went to get it, the apple had began to rot and dry up. Boy, did she wallop me. She didn’t even ask, just knew I was guilty. We went to visit my grandmother’s sister Aunt

Etha. Us kids would call her Aunt Chloroform to her back. She was Uncle Marvin Grisham’s wife. She would take us to the barn to pick off peanuts, thought that was the best thing we ever had. My brother always collected old cigarette packages to decorate for Christmas. Inside was a little sheet of silver paper. He’d gather a bucket of sweet gum balls and wrap them with the silver paper to make decorations for his Christmas tree. He covered his tree (in the yard) with them and had some candle holders that you pinch to open, then clipped them onto a branch. He put a colored candle in each holder, lit them and ran into house to get mother to show her. A candle tilted and set the tree on fire. When they came out of the house, only a burned tree stood there. He was so disappointed. It ruined his Christmas. We didn’t have much

to eat during the depression. Bud made rabbit boxes from scrap lumber he found, catch rabbits, dress them and hang on clothes line. So cold they would be frozen until mother got ready to cook. She would grind them up and make sausage. She seasoned them with sage and pepper like pork and they were delicious. Our neighbor Arlie Dodd’s son Roy had a pony named “Dixie.” That pony loved to bite kids so his sister and I were playing in the pasture one day. We looked up and here came Dixie. Instead of getting a tree each, we climbed the same tree. It was a small tree and we could not get out of his reach. He’d bit me, I’d move her way. The tree bent her way. Then he bit her and the tree swayed back. We yelled for her mother to come save us. After that, we changed playing places….

Roach — Smith Miss Amy Michelle Roach and Mr. Justin Cole Smith will exchange wedding vows at 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 6, 2013 on the Oakland Baptist Church lawn in Corinth. The bride-elect is the daughter of Glenn and Vicki Roach of Corinth. She is the granddaughter of the late Russell and Pauline Roach of Blue Mountain, and Ouida Burress and the late Rev. Bobby Burress of Corinth. The prospective bridegroom is the son of Tim and Hope Smith of Corinth. He is the grandson of Linda Smith and the late Vandel “Jiggs” Smith, and Hershel and Dorothy Smith, all of Corinth. Ms. Roach is a 2004 graduate of Alcorn Central High School. She received her bachelor’s degree in English educa-

tion from The University of Mississippi in 2008. In 2012, she earned her master’s degree in English education from The University of Mississippi. She is currently employed as a teacher at Alcorn Central High School. Mr. Smith is a 2001 graduate of Alcorn Central High School. He received a landscape management and design license from Mississippi State University in 2003. In 2009, he received his bachelor’s degree in organizational leadership from Union University. He is currently employed as the superintendent/ general manager at Iuka Country Club. All friends and relatives of the couple are invited to attend the outdoor ceremony and the reception which follows. No local invitations are being sent.


“This is an anniversary of what is arguably one of the most important times in American history,” she said. “And the same questions behind state rights and civil rights continue to infuse who we are as a country.” In September, the University of Maryland will host a national conference on civil rights and health disparities among minority populations to mark the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. Choreographer Liz Lerman, a 2002 MacArthur Foundation “genius” fellow, helped in developing the partnerships between theaters and universities during a semester spent at Harvard. She said artists can help professors animate their scholarship as more traditional lectures move online, and the Civil War is a good subject to connect art and academics. Lerman is developing a new dance theater piece in Washington called “Healing Wars” to explore the role of women and innovations in healing for amputees from the Civil War through the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Characters will migrate between past and present. The piece will feature actor Bill Pullman and eight dancers. Harvard President Drew Gilpin Faust, a Civil War historian, has been leading the university to integrate the arts with academic pursuits, through theater, exhibits or other art forms. “Engaging students through art and art-making is one of the ways in

“It’s an experiment to see how far we can go in bringing together the strengths of the university and the strengths of the theater company.” Steven Knapp


He took an umbrella to work every day, said any fool would know to take it if it was raining. He always milked the cow before he went to the office. He looked funny with a white shirt and tie on while milking. Bud and I took a cup each with him to milk. He sat us in the trough where the cow was eating. First he washed the cow’s udder, then got our cups and filled them with hot, foamy milk. It was not even filtered, but we loved it and it didn’t kill us. Bud and I would fuss some, but mother put a stop to that. Did you ever take any 666 tonic? It’s so bitter it would draw a blister on a wash pot. Mother would buy two large bottles, put his name on one and mine on the other. Every time we began to fuss, she would grab those bottles and give us a dose. She said it would work the

George Washington University president which universities prepare young women and men for life in a world that is far better connected and far more complex than at any other point in human history,” she wrote in an email about the Civil War project. At this anniversary of the war, she said it’s important to remember how the values of freedom and equality were defined in President Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg address as the war’s purpose. George Washington University President Steven Knapp said the Civil War transformed American history, culture and industry — even the concept of American democracy by redefining equality. Tackling such a subject between academia and theater could provide a new model for learning, he said. “It’s an experiment,” Knapp said, “to see how far we can go in bringing together the strengths of the university and the strengths of the theater company.”

Fanning inspires look at 5 great child actresses BY CHRISTY LEMIRE AP Movie Critic

LOS ANGELES — Elle Fanning does some incredible work as a teenager caught up in the anti-nukes activism of 1960s London in the new coming-of age drama “Ginger & Rosa.” This latest, greatest performance is part of a career she’s carved out for herself at only age 14, with previous impressive roles in films including “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” “Super 8” and “Somewhere.” (Must be in the DNA: Her older sister, Dakota Fanning, is also talented and experienced well beyond her 19 years with an eclectic mix of films ranging from “War of the Worlds” and the “Twilight” movies to “Hounddog” and “The Runaways.”) So in a year in which “Beasts of the Southern Wild” star Quvenzhane Wallis became the youngest-ever best-actress nominee at the Academy

Awards at only 9, here’s a look at five great child actresses: ■ Shirley Temple: The original. What precocious little girl hasn’t watched Temple singing and dancing to “On the Good Ship Lollipop” and thought to herself: “That looks like fun — I want to do that too”? Of course, we all couldn’t do it because she had that rare “thing” — that spark, that zest, that glow. She also worked her butt off perfecting her craft at a very young age — she started dancing and appearing in short films at 3 and making features at 5 — but she made childlike charm and enthusiasm look effortless. By 6, she’d already won an Academy Award — a special juvenile honor, but still. She then went on to make dozens of films over a three-decade career and remains arguably the greatest child star ever. What has your kid done today? ■ Elizabeth Taylor: In her early, family-friend-


Those mesmerizing eyes, that luxurious dark hair and flawless skin. It was as if she never went through the sort of awkward preadolescent stage the rest of us endured. ly films such as “Lassie Come Home” and especially “National Velvet,” Taylor had a startling and mature beauty for someone her age. Something about her aura radiated a grace and sophistication well beyond her years. Those mesmerizing eyes, that luxurious dark hair and flawless skin. It was as if she never went through the sort of awkward preadolescent stage the rest of us endured. She made her first film, “There’s One Born Every Minute,” at age 10. You guys know what happened from there: triumph, heartache, three Academy Awards, multiple marriage, superstardom. ■ Jodie Foster: As she

said in her rambling speech at this year’s Golden Globes, she’s been in the public eye since age 3. Now at 50, the two-time Oscar winner is a great example of remaining strong and vital throughout the transition from child stardom to adulthood. Foster had confidence and swagger from her earliest days — it’s evident even in something silly like a guest appearance on “The Partridge Family.” In 1976 alone, in a demonstration of her great range, she played two very different kinds of kids: Iris, the worldweary prostitute, opposite Robert De Niro in Martin Scorsese’s brilliant and disturbing “Taxi Driver,”

and Annabel, the quickwitted tomboy who finds she’s magically switched bodies with her mother in the Disney comedy “Freaky Friday.” ■ Kirsten Dunst: She started modeling and appearing in commercials when she was only a few years old, but her breakout role at age 12 was playing the adorably creepy vampire Claudia opposite Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt in “Interview With the Vampire.” Great choices from there have included Sofia Coppola’s “The Virgin Suicides” and “Marie Antoinette,” Michel Gondry’s dreamlike “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” and the kitschy cheerleader comedy “Bring It On.” Playing Mary-Jane in the “SpiderMan” trilogy probably didn’t hurt. But she was excellent — and deserved an Oscar nomination — for her haunting work as a depressed bride in Lars Von Trier’s “Melancholia.” (She also has a movie

opening this weekend, the sci-fi romance “Upside Down.”) ■ Abigail Breslin: She was one of the youngestever Oscar nominees at age 10 for her charming, vulnerable and ultimately inspiring performance as awkward pageant contestant Olive in the crowdpleasing indie “Little Miss Sunshine.” But she made an impression even earlier than that when she made her film debut at just 5 in M. Night Shyamalan’s “Signs.” Her varied work has ranged from the star-studded romantic comedy “Definitely, Maybe” to the heart-tugging “My Sister’s Keeper” to the horror comedy “Zombieland” to the musical drama “Janie Jones,” which showed off her singing and guitar-playing talents. (Like Fanning and Dunst, Breslin has a new movie in theaters this weekend, too: the thriller “The Call.”) And she’s only 16 now — it’s all out there in front of her.

Film project focuses on stories behind Japan tsunami debris BY BECKY BOHRER Associated Press

JUNEAU, Alaska — A ball. A boat. A little girl’s sandal. Filmmakers are working to find — and tell — the stories behind some of the items that have washed up on North American shores following the deadly 2011 tsunami in Japan. “Lost and Found” aims to reunite items discovered by beachcombers and others who feel compelled to return them to their rightful owners, codirector John Choi said. A trailer for the film, which is still being produced, features two men affected by the items they’ve found. John Anderson found a volleyball on a beach in Washington state and Marcus Eriksen, head of an expedition that sailed from Japan to Hawaii to look for tsunami debris last year, found part of a boat. Neither of the items has been linked to their original owners yet. “It was just like, Whoa, oh man! There’s one of them balls with all the writing on it,” Anderson says in the clip. “I’m more interested in the story behind it. You know, I would sure like to know what happened to these people. It would be nice to know that they survived or this was at home while they were away — just this got washed away.” Eriksen said when his team first saw the boat, there was initial excitement, “because we had been watching the ocean for a few weeks, just wondering what’s out there. But when we approached this, it quickly went from

fascination and excitement to, like, the sobering reality that this was someone’s property, and we were very quickly filled with compassion about, you know, who lost this boat.” “They didn’t lose it,” he said in the clip. “It was taken from them by natural disaster, so I feel compelled to find that individual.” It’s been a little over two years since the disaster, which devastated a long stretch of Japan’s northeastern coast and killed thousands of people. The Japanese government estimated that 1.5 million tons of debris was floating in the ocean in the immediate aftermath of the tsunami, but it’s not clear how much is still floating. Tsunami debris is tough to monitor and distinguish from the everyday debris — much of it from Asia — that has long been a problem along the West Coast. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said just 21 items of the more than 1,500 reports of possible tsunami debris — including balls, a motorcycle and boats — have been firmly traced back to the tsunami. However, the agency lists scores of other items along the West Coast and across the Pacific Ocean as potentially linked. Choi first got the idea for the documentary about 1 1/2 years ago, after hearing a news report discussing a tsunami debris field. He started thinking about what might wash ashore, and how cool it would be if there was an effort to return found items. He connected with co-

director Nicolina Lanni. At the time, he said, nothing had washed ashore. The effort took off after they met Seattle-based oceanographer Curtis Ebbesmeyer, who shared his thoughts on what might happen and encouraged them in their effort. The Canada-based filmmakers have been filming, on and off, for about a year. They established a network of contributors, and at times have been involved in trying to track down information on items found, like the little pink-and-purple sandal. A woman they met at a recent beachcomber fair found the shoe in Hawaii. A picture of it was posted on the film’s Facebook page, asking for help translating the handwriting on it. So far, he said, the team is looking at six stories, three of which involve items already traced to their owners. “Our film is about 3 countries, 2 continents, separated by the great vastness of the Pacific Ocean coming together to share in the memories, mourn the losses and find great joy in the reuniting of something once thought to be lost forever but has now been found,” a description of the project, on the Facebook page, says. Additional filming is planned for North America this spring and Japan this summer. The filmmakers have been raising money, to help with costs. Choi hopes to have the documentary released by the third anniversary of the disaster.

Future dad Buble not worried about album sales Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Michael Buble has sold millions of albums, but as he readies the release of his newest project, he’s less concerned with his future sales, thanks to his wife’s pregnancy. “I’m nervous and excited, and truly I think it’s given me great perspective,” the singer said at the music video shoot for his new single, “It’s a Beautiful Day.” “I used to worry about how the single would do and how the record would sell. And the truth is, I love this record. I’m so proud of it. But, at the end of the day, if it sells 10 million or 10 copies, I’ve got bigger fish to fry,” he continued. “I’ve got a

wife and a kid I love very much.” Buble married Argentine actress Luisana Lopilato in 2011. They announced in January they’re expecting their first child, and his publicist confirmed Thursday the couple are expecting a son. Most of Buble’s albums have reached multiplatinum status, and his last three releases have hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, including the triple platinum “Christmas,” the second best-selling album of 2011 behind Adele’s “21.” His new album, “To Be Loved,” will be released April 23. It finds the Grammy winner cov-

ering songs by the Bee Gees, Dean Martin and Elvis Presley, as well as collaborating with Reese Witherspoon. It also features four original songs, including a tribute to his wife called “Close Your Eyes.” “It’s a Beautiful Day” is about a man who is happy because his failing romantic relationship has finally ended. So who inspired the song? “Harry Styles,” the 37-year-old Buble replied jokingly, referring to the One Direction band member who dated Taylor Swift. “Harry Styles,” Buble said again, feigning heartbreak. “He left me for Taylor. I’ll be writing about her, too, soon.”
