Vice chair Dalton resigns from arena board BY STEVE BEAVERS email@example.com
Crossroads Arena Board Vice Chairman Alva Dalton has resigned from the seven-member board. Wednesday's meeting of the board was the first without the vice chairman who had been part of the group close to six years.
“I am going to miss him,” said board chairman Dr. Hardwick Kay. “Alva brought a lot of good experience and served the board well.” “Alva was a pillar of the board,” said board member Sam Tull. “He came up with a lot of good ideas and we will miss him.” Dalton, a city appointment to
the board, elected to not comment on his resignation when contacted Wednesday afternoon. Board members serve fiveyear terms. The City of Corinth and Alcorn County, which jointly own the Crossroads Arena, are each allowed three appointments to the board with one of the seven spots being jointly appointed.
Corinth Mayor Tommy Irwin said a new city appointment to the board should be in place within the next two weeks. “Alva did a great job and was good for the community,” said the mayor. The board has taken on a different look over the last year. Longtime board member Bill Strickland was replaced by Joe
Franks when his term expired in August. Franks' seat was filled by his wife, Sharon, when he passed away in December. The seven-person board now consists of city appointments Phyllis Keith-Young and Tull. The county representatives are Kay, Thom Rogers and Jane Clark Summers. Franks is the joint appointment.
Henry becoming Michie principal BY JEFF YORK For the Daily Corinthian
MICHIE, Tenn. — A longtime educator in the Crossroads area is coming home to become the new principal at Michie School for the next school year. Wayne Henry, 53, will complete the school year as the assistant superintendent of schools in Alcorn County before moving into his new job. He will take over as Michie’s principal on July 1. Henry is extremely excited about returning to the McNairy County School System after 28 years in Mississippi. He was a principal at Kossuth
High School for one year and a principal at Corinth High School for five years. He was once head football coach at his alma mater, Corinth High. Henry taught for Henry two years in Georgia and two years in McNairy County as well. “Wayne is a solid guy and will do a great job at Michie,” Please see HENRY | 2
Arena wants to add Firemen installing smoke detectors more dirt floor events Staff photo by Steve Beavers
Corinth Fireman Robert Lambert talks with Edna Grissom about the smoke detectors local firemen are installing free of charge.
BY STEVE BEAVERS firstname.lastname@example.org
Edna Grissom can rest better at night. Corinth firemen with Station 1 provided Grissom's relief by installing a pair of smoke detectors at her Forrest School Road home. “This saves me a lot of worry and expense,” said Grissom. “I have been thinking about this for a while.”
The installation of the free smoke devices was made possible by a U.S. Fire Service grant, according to Alcorn County Emergency Services Coordinator Ricky Gibens. “Everyone gets two detectors unless they live in a two-story home and then they get three,” said the emergency coordinator. Devices are available to citizens in Corinth and Alcorn
County. One stipulation is the home can not be a rental home or governmental housing. “It has to be the primary living residence,” said Gibens. Individuals can call their local fire department, E-911 Office or Gibens to set up a time to have the detectors installed. Gibens said a fire inspection will also be done when

Kossuth farmer learns ins and outs of genetic egg business BY BOBBY J. SMITH firstname.lastname@example.org
KOSSUTH — A local farmer is learning the ins and outs of the chicken business. For years Doug Mitchell’s Kossuth farm has raised row crops and cattle. Starting last year, Mitchell Farms has expanded into poultry. The last several months have been a learning experience, said Mitchell. “I was surprised by how fast a chicken does grow and how complicated the genetic egg business is,” he said. Mitchell has constructed two facilities on his farm near Kossuth on Highway 2. Both facilities have been up and running since mid December. The buildings are 50-by-465 feet and each house 10,000 hens and 1,000 roosters. They cost roughly $700,000 each. With their high level of automation, it only takes a couple of employees to keep the operation running smoothly. Mitchell’s facilities make up
the first chicken farm in Mississippi affiliated with Aviagen — a global market leader in poultry genetics. One of the most conspicuous aspects of Mitchell’s poultry operation is the high level of cleanliness the facilities operate under. “Cleanliness is one of the biggest things,” Mitchell pointed out. Anyone who enters the buildings must take a shower in the shower room at the entrance and change into a special disinfected suit of clothes. The operation is carried out in a way that minimizes the chances of bacteria or other harmful substances getting in with the growing chickens. “You’ve got to use hand sanitizers going in, and if you’re carrying a tool, it has to be disinfected,” said Mitchell. All is going well at the chicken farm, Mitchell said. In one house his birds are 14 weeks old. In the other they are at 18 weeks. At this stage — the first
Doug Mitchell’s two chicken buildings are 50-by-465 feet, and each houses 10,000 hens and 1,000 roosters. They cost roughly $700,000 each. 24 weeks — all they require is food and water to grow. From week 24 to 58, they will lay eggs. In the meantime, life goes on at Mitchell Farms. Last week was the time to vaccinate half of the birds in one of Mitchell’s barns. With over 5,000 birds to take care of, it was a big job. On Thursday a 12-man crew spent all day vaccinating chickens. Mitchell hopes more people in the area will see the potential

of chicken farming and make it a bigger part of the area’s agriculture. Currently, the majority of the money generated by the two chicken-houses goes toward paying for the buildings. Even while paying off his expenses, Mitchell brings in $50,000 a year. But the real money will start rolling in seven years from now when the buildings are paid for. The local farmer’s experience
so far has encouraged another member of his family to get in the business. Mitchell’s daughter and son-in-law will soon start their own operation a couple of miles from his. He said he’s also talking to a few other farmers in the area about raising chickens. If Aviagen can build 10 facilities like Mitchell’s in MississipPlease see EGGS | 2

the smoke devices are mounted. â€œAll they have to do is call Station 1 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. and we will set up a time when we can come out,â€? said Corinth Fire Chief Billy Briggs. Each of the 11 local fire departments received 100 detectors. â€œI can't stress the importance of having a smoke detector enough,â€? said Briggs. â€œSmoke is actually what ends up getting a person, but if someone has a working device, it can give them time to get out of the house.â€? â€œWe have been to fires where the devices made the difference in saving a life,â€? added fireman Jerry Whirley. The brand being installed is First Alert. It contains a 10-year lithium power cell and mutes unwanted alarms. Two other devices for avail-
able through the fire departments for those who are hearing impaired or deaf. A SafeAwake variety is triggered by the smoke alarm and fits under a mattresses and vibrates if the alarm sounds. While the third choice is a strobe light that is triggered by the alarm. Devices just can't be handed to the home owner. â€œThe fire departments have to install them,â€? added Gibens. The primary recipients are senior citizens, low-income households, physically impaired and households with children 14 years of age and younger. â€œI really appreciate what all firemen do,â€? said Grissom. â€œThey provide a great service to the community.â€? (City residents can call Station 1 at 286-2213. County home owners are instructed to call the E-911 Office at 286-7703 or Gibens at 415-3851.)

According to arena staff member Cindy Davis, 2,043 paying customers attended the Motocross on March 1-2 while a total of 3,778 paid to see monster trucks perform the following weekend of March 8-9. Saturday's paying crowd of the truck event totaled 2,186. â€œWe had a lot of local kids in the motocross,â€? said board chairman Dr. Hardwick Kay. â€œWe were able to pull several new people because of the show.â€? Kay said the promoter of the event was also pleased. â€œI was told it was a pleasure to work with the staff we have here,â€? added Kay. Board members discussed the idea of getting a better exhaust system prior to next year's truck show. â€œThe system we have will not keep up with a motorized event,â€? said operations manager Greg Moss. â€œIt is doing what it

Smoke from the monster truck event filled the building and to clear the air, doors had to be open on a cold night which caused the facility to be cool the rest of the evening. A second small discussion on a possible liquor license was part of the agenda. Genovese has been in contact with other facilities such as the arena in Tupelo, DeSoto Co., Huntsville, Ala. and Jackson Tenn. â€œAll four have their license,â€? she said. â€œWe are going to get all of our facts and figures together before we make a decision,â€? added the board chairman. The board was informed of eight future shows. â€œWe are open to new ideas and events and hope to have things worked out soon,â€? said Genovese.

Today in history
School district hires new curriculum coordinator BY BRANT SAPPINGTON email@example.com
Today is Thursday, March 21, the 80th day of 2013. There are 285 days left in the year.
Today’s Highlight in History: On March 21, 1963, the Alcatraz federal prison island in San Francisco Bay was emptied of its last inmates and closed at the order of Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy.
On this date: In 1556, Thomas Cranmer, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, was burned at the stake for heresy. In 1685, composer Johann Sebastian Bach was born in Eisenach, Germany. In 1804, the French civil code, or the “Code Napoleon” as it was later called, was adopted. In 1871, journalist Henry M. Stanley began his famous expedition in Africa to locate the missing Scottish missionary David Livingstone. In 1907, U.S. Marines arrived in Honduras to protect American lives and interests in the wake of political violence. In 1940, a new government was formed in France by Paul Reynaud (ray-NOH’), who became prime minister, succeeding Edouard Daladier. In 1944, Charles Chaplin went on trial in Los Angeles, accused of transporting former protegee Joan Barry across state lines for immoral purposes. (Chaplin was acquitted, but later lost a paternity suit despite tests showing he wasn’t the father of Barry’s child.) In 1960, about 70 people were killed in Sharpeville, South Africa, when police fired on black protesters. In 1965, civil rights demonstrators led by the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. began their third, successful march from Selma to Montgomery, Ala. In 1972, the Supreme Court, in Dunn v. Blumstein, ruled that states may not require at least a year’s residency for voting eligibility. In 1985, police in Langa, South Africa, opened fire on blacks marching to mark the 25th anniversary of Sharpeville; the reported death toll varied between 29 and 43. In 1990, Namibia became an independent nation as the former colony marked the end of 75 years of South African rule.
Ten years ago: The United States launched a ferocious, around-the-clock aerial assault on military targets in Baghdad and other cities. The House approved a $2.2 trillion budget embracing President George W. Bush’s tax-cutting plan.
An experienced administrator from Alcorn County has been appointed as the new curriculum coordinator for the Prentiss County School District. Board members voted unanimously Monday to appoint Kim Hamm to fill the curriculum coordinator post that has remained vacant since the death of previous district curriculum coordinator and transportation director Jason McKinney in an automobile crash last August. Hamm currently serves as federal programs coordinator for the Alcorn School District, though she is a Prentiss County resident, noted Superintendent Randle Downs. Downs said nine candidates were interviewed for the position with the search focused on finding an experienced administrator with the knowledge and ability to immediately step into the role with as small of a learning curve as possible. He said they had nine excellent candidates apply but it was
clear that Hamm’s experience in a similar position made her the best possible choice. He noted Hamm is a recognized expert on curriculum matters in the state and has been featured as a speaker at numerous workshops and seminars on curriculum issues as well as at the most recent meeting of the state superintendent’s association. Board members enthusiastically approved his recommendation for her appointment. “It’s like hitting a home run if we can get this person,” said board president Ronny Kesler. Hamm submitted her resignation to the Alcorn School District board Tuesday night and she will work out the remainder of her contract with that district before beginning her duties in Prentiss County at the start of the new contract year on July 1. Board members briefly and heatedly revisited the issue of designating Marietta and Hills Chapel elementary schools as athletic feeder schools for New Site High School. Board

current state policy of allowing students to attend the school of their choice within the district because it applies only to athletics. The discussion went no further due to the issue of its appropriateness on the current agenda and the board agreed to discuss it again at a future meeting. The board also heard Monday from Betty Jane Arnold regarding efforts at Thrasher school to support Principal Rivers Stroup in his ongoing battle with esophageal cancer. Arnold presented the board with buttons created for the students and staff in honor of Stroup and asked permission to share the buttons and to sell T-shirts created in his honor at other schools in the district. She said they are making no money on the buttons or T-shirts but instead are simply seeking to show Stroup everyone is behind him in his struggle. Arnold also told the board the school will be conducting its American Cancer Society Relay for Life efforts in Stroup’s honor this year.
Activity center Bishop Activity Center is having the following activities the week of March 18-22: today -pet therapy from Corinth Animal Shelter, puzzles, games and open discussion. Senior citizens, age 60 and above, are welcome and encouraged to attend. A variety of activities is offered for everyone.

ously voted in favor of the designation, said she also believed raising the issue was improper at Monday’s meeting under the normal rules of order. Kesler said he disagreed because the issue was one of old business that is valid for discussion at a followup meeting. Board Attorney Allison Worley agreed that the issue was not properly brought up for discussion at Monday’s meeting and would have to be considered at a future meeting. Kesler said he disagreed but accepted the decision of the other board members to discuss it in the future. He previously voted against the designation and said Monday he believes the previous decision was rushed and done without enough research and further research has shown the designation would have unintended consequences for all students by forcing the district to abide by school attendance area lines. Slack said she disagrees with that assessment and the designation won’t change the

Member Jason McCoy made a motion to rescind the board’s previous action in making the designation which was immediately seconded by Board Member Sheila Johnson. The designation requires students at these schools participating in activities sanctioned by the Mississippi High School Activities Association, including all sports, to do so only as a part of New Site High School team. If the student later transferred to another high school in the district after competing at the high school level at New Site they would be forced to sit out a year before being eligible to compete in the same activity at their new school. Board Member Lisa Slack, who had argued in favor of the move at the previous meeting, said Monday night the discussion of the issue was improper at Monday’s meeting because it was not on the agenda and because the minutes of that meeting had not been formally approved.

Medicaid expansion or not, health care costs will be paid While the battle continues between state Republicans and other fiscal conservatives intent on focusing on the long-terms costs of Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act and Democrats, health care advocates and state hospitals intent on focusing on the short-term benefits, the fact remains that one way or another, the costs of providing health care for the poor, the blind, the aged and the disabled will be paid by the Sid Salter taxpayers. A Mississippi Institutions Columnist of Higher Learning economic brief by state economist Bob Neal last year made the nuts-and-bolts of the Medicaid expansion question clear: “The results in each scenario indicate that Medicaid expansion will generate additional state Medicaid costs in years 2017-2025. From 2014-2020, cumulative state costs of Medicaid expansion, minus additions to state General Fund revenue, are projected to range from $109 million to $98 million. From 2014-2025, total state costs of Medicaid expansion, minus additions to state General Fund revenue, are projected to range from $556 million to $497 million. “Increased access to health care could enhance the overall health of Mississippi’s residents. In the long-term, a healthier workforce should result in a more productive workforce, leading to a healthier, more robust economy. Estimating these possible long-term economic improvements is beyond the scope of this study. In the long run (30 to 40 years) the benefits of Medicaid expansion might outweigh the costs. Paying for it in the years ahead might be a challenge,” Neal concluded. That assessment matches one drawn in a national study by the Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured three months ago which held, in part: “For opponents of Medicaid expansion in Mississippi, which to date includes state Republican heavyweights like Gov. Phil Bryant, Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves and House Speaker Philip Gunn, the report supports the contention the Medicaid expansion can’t be accomplished without increased costs to state government. “States are deciding whether to expand the Medicaid program, and they clearly will be balancing improvements in coverage against new costs for states,” said Diane Rowland, executive director of the Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured upon release of the study. “While some states will see net savings, others will need to weigh the tradeoffs between small increases in state spending in return for large gains in coverage supported by mostly federal dollars.” The report clearly names Mississippi — given the large number of uninsured and Medicaid eligible under the ACA — as one of the states that will see such cost hikes. So let’s focus the debate on that point — the Mississippi Legislature faces a choice between raising public health care costs for Mississippi taxpayers and expanding health care coverage to the state’s poor and working poor. Complicating that debate is the fact that as the poorest state in the union, Mississippi faces the lingering and compounding problem of high rates of uncompensated care — much of it delivered in the most expensive venue possible in hospital emergency rooms. The Kaiser report points out that if uncompensated care costs are considered, increased costs “even in states with the highest level of increased Medicaid costs from the expansion, new state spending relative to general fund expenditures is approximately 1 percent or less.” That contention is one that Mississippi hospitals and Medicaid expansion proponents emphasize. Opponents point to possible future federal policy shifts in calculating the state’s share of Medicaid expenditures after expansion as the greatest danger in expanding Mississippi’s Medicaid program. In other words, Medicaid expansion sounds good under the current rules — but what happens if the rules change in the future? Unavoidable, however, is the conclusion that whether through Medicaid or through uncompensated care, the taxpayers will still face the ultimate burden of paying for health care for the poor.

A verse to share “The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.” — Psalms 126:3
Ten years later: Was Iraq worth it? Ten years ago today, U.S. air, sea and land forces attacked Iraq. And the great goals of Operation Iraqi Freedom? Destroy the chemical and biological weapons Saddam Hussein had amassed to use on us or transfer to al-Qaida for use against the U.S. homeland. Exact retribution for Saddam’s complicity in 9/11 after we learned his agents had met secretly in Prague with Mohamed Atta. Create a flourishing democracy in Baghdad that would serve as a catalyst for a miraculous transformation of the Middle East from a land of despots into a region of democracies that looked West. Not all agreed on the wisdom of this war. Gen. Bill Odom, former director of the National Security Agency, thought George W. Bush & Co. had lost their minds. After a few weeks of “shock and awe,” U.S. forces took Baghdad and dethroned Saddam, who had fled but was soon found in a rat hole and prosecuted and hanged, as were his associates. And so, ’twas a famous victory. Mission accomplished! Soon, however, America found herself in a new, unanticipated war, and by 2006, we were, astonishingly, on the precipice of defeat, caught in a Sunni-Shia sectarian conflict produced by our having disbanded the Iraqi army and presided over the empowerment of
the first Shia regime in the nation’s history. Only a “surge” of U.S. troops Pat led by Gen. PeBuchanan David traeus resColumnist cued the United States from a strategic debacle to rival the fall of Saigon. But the surge could not rescue the Republican Party, which had lusted for this war, from repudiation by a nation that believed itself to have been misled, deceived and lied into war. In 2006, the party lost both houses of Congress, and the Pentagon architect of the war, Don Rumsfeld, was cashiered by the commander in chief. Two years later, disillusionment with Iraq would contribute to the rout of Republican uber-hawk John McCain by a freshman senator from Illinois who had opposed the war. So, how now does the ledger read, 10 years on? What is history’s present verdict on what history has come to call Bush’s war? Of the three goals of the war, none was achieved. No weapon of mass destruction was found. While Saddam and his sons paid for their sins, they had had nothing at all to do with 9/11. Nothing. That had all been mendacious propaganda. Where there had been
no al-Qaida in Iraq while Saddam ruled, al-Qaida is crawling all over Iraq now. Where Iraq had been an Arab Sunni bulwark confronting Iran in 2003, a decade later, Iraq is tilting away from the Sunni camp toward the Shia crescent of Iran and Hezbollah. What was the cost in blood and treasure of our Mesopotamian misadventure? Four thousand five hundred U.S. dead, 35,000 wounded and this summary of war costs from Friday’s Wall Street Journal: “The decade-long (Iraq) effort cost $1.7 trillion, according to a study ... by the Watson Institute for International Studies at Brown University. Fighting over the past 10 years has killed 134,000 Iraqi civilians .... Meanwhile, the nearly $500 billion in unpaid benefits to U.S. veterans of the Iraq war could balloon to $6 trillion” over the next 40 years. Iraq made a major contribution to the bankrupting of America. As for those 134,000 Iraqi civilian dead, that translates into 500,000 Iraqi widows and orphans. What must they think of us? According to the latest Gallup poll, by 2-to-1, Iraqis believe they are more secure — now that the Americans are gone from their country. Left behind, however, is our once-sterling reputation. Never before has America been held in lower
esteem by the Arab peoples or the Islamic world. As for the reputation of the U.S. military, how many years will it be before our armed forces are no longer automatically associated with such terms as Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo, renditions and waterboarding? As for the Chaldean and Assyrian Christian communities of Iraq who looked to America, they have been ravaged and abandoned, with many having fled their ancient homes forever. We are not known as a reflective people. But a question has to weigh upon us. If Saddam had no WMD, had no role in 9/11, did not attack us, did not threaten us, and did not want war with us, was our unprovoked attack on that country a truly just and moral war? What makes the question more than academic is that the tub-thumpers for war on Iraq a decade ago are now clamoring for war on Iran. Goal: Strip Iran of weapons of mass destruction all 16 U.S. intelligence agencies say Iran does not have and has no program to build. This generation is eyewitness to how a Great Power declines and falls. And to borrow from old King Pyrrhus, one more such victory as Iraq, and we are undone. (Daily Corinthian columnist Patrick J. Buchanan is the author of “Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?”)
GOP reaches for stars, but falls flat BY ROGER SIMON A new GOP study designed to theatrically rebrand the party and boldly redirect its future turns out to be 97-page blend of the obvious, the unlikely and the impossible. The study, which contains no fewer than 219 recommendations, was supposed to pull a party that has lost the popular vote in five of the last six presidential elections out of its death spiral. In previewing it on “Face the Nation With Bob Schieffer” Sunday, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said of the last election, “Our message was weak; our ground game was insufficient; we weren’t inclusive; we were behind in both data and digital; our primary and debate process needed improvement.” Wasn’t something else weak, insufficient, behind and needing improvement? Oh, yeah, Mitt Romney. Priebus didn’t mention his name, perhaps because he has already forgotten it. The bold and new rebranding of the Republican Party is, in fact, a melange of old Democratic successes (organize hard with paid

staff and new technology across the entire country), old Democratic failures (limit the number of primary debates) and thinking that is so pie-in-the-sky that GOP might as well stand for Grand Old Pastry. Take minorities. The Republicans are now going to study them like they were some kind of new microbe. Priebus is pledging to spend $10 million on the effort. I know $10 million sounds like a lot, but in political terms it is a pittance. The two presidential campaigns spent more than $2 billion in the last election, and one Republican billionaire, Sheldon Adelson, gave Romney $33 million in the closing weeks, bringing the total he and his wife gave to the GOP to $95 million. In other words, $10 million is what Republican fat cats find in their couch cushions. The Republicans are going to establish “Senior Level Advisory Councils” for Hispanics, African-Americans and Asian-Americans. They will reach out to women and start doing “voter engagement at a granular level starting now,” Priebus said at a news conference Monday.
The GOP doesn’t really expect to gain many new black voters in 2014 or 2016, but it is drooling over Hispanic voters. After the 2000 election, Matthew Dowd, then a senior strategist for George W. Bush, produced a nowhistoric memo stating that if Republicans continued to underperform among Hispanics, the party would be in serious trouble nationally as Hispanic voting strength grew. And Hispanics were fertile soil for Republicans. On the surface, the new GOP report looks good for Hispanics. “We must embrace and champion comprehensive immigration reform,” it says. “If we do not, our party’s appeal will continue to shrink to its core constituencies only.” (Which is what Dowd told them a dozen years ago.) But that is as far as the report goes. It does not address what most Hispanics really care about: immigration reform that guarantees a pathway to citizenship for the 11 million in America illegally. Some Republicans don’t want to reward lawbreak-

ing, and some say, “Hey, why create millions of new voters who are going to give Democrats 70 percent of their votes?” This is where outreach becomes tough. When Priebus was asked why gay voters would vote Republican, he replied, “Sen. Portman made some inroads last week.” And, indeed, Sen. Rob Portman, a Republican from Ohio, recently endorsed gay marriage after finding out (two years ago) that his son was gay. And if Portman ever has a black child, maybe Portman will champion civil rights. But don’t worry. The GOP is leaving no minority group unturned. The report calls for a “Celebrity Task Force of personalities in the entertainment industry to host events ... and allow donors to participate in entertainment events as a way to attract younger voters.” So maybe Sheldon Adelson and Taylor Swift could do a happenin’ duet.

Nevada town mourns Marines who died HAWTHORNE, Nev. â€” Hundreds of residents in a rural community steeped in military history turned out to mourn the loss of seven Marines as investigators arrived at an ammunition depot to try to determine how a mortar shell exploded at the Nevada base and sent shrapnel flying into troops during a training exercise. Families with children clutching small American flags were among the nearly 300 people who attended the brief memorial service Tuesday, where a trumpeter played taps at a city park as a giant American flag flew at half-staff across the street from the base at dusk. Marine officers from Camp Lejeune, N.C., who arrived at the Hawthorne Army Depot on Tuesday, could not attend the memorial, as they began the task of figuring out what caused a mortar shell to explode in its firing tube. The accident prompted the Pentagon to restrict the use of the weapons until an investigation can determine their safety, officials said. The explosion Monday night at the sprawling facility during an exercise involved the 2nd Marine Expeditionary Force from Camp Lejeune. Seven men were killed and eight were injured, officials said. A Navy corpsman is among the injured. Hawthorne has been an important installation in American military history since World War II, when it was the staging area for ammunition, bombs and rockets. The facility has downsized in recent years but still serves as a munitions repository and disposal site, along with being a training facility for troops as they take advantage of terrain and climate similar to places like Afghanistan. The facility is made up of hundreds of buildings spread over more than 230 square miles, and bunkers dot the sagebrush-covered hills visible from the highway. Even though the Marines were from the other side of the country, locals still feel a strong sense of pride in the military because the townâ€™s history is so deeply tied to the armed forces.
The town calls itself â€œAmericaâ€™s Patriotic Homeâ€? and is home to the Hawthorne Ordnance Museum, which displays hundreds of shells, munitions, battery guns and weapons dating to World War II. Red, white and blue sculptures made of former shells and bombs are on display in town. Storefronts carry names like Patriotâ€™s Plaza. The sign on a business Thursday carried the message, â€œPlease Pray For Our Marines.â€? â€œThe evening of March 18, 2013, will forever be remembered as a moment of profound tragedy in Mineral County,â€? District Attorney Sean Rowe told the memorial service. â€œYou have given meaning to the phrase, â€˜Americaâ€™s Patriotic Home.â€™â€? Â
Landmark gun bills signed in Colorado DENVER â€” The governor of Colorado signed bills Wednesday that put sweeping new restrictions on sales of firearms and ammunition in a state with a pioneer tradition of gun ownership and self-reliance. The bills thrust Colorado into the national spotlight as a potential test of how far the country might be willing to go with new gun restrictions after the horror of mass killings at an Aurora movie theater and a Connecticut elementary school. The approval by Gov. John Hickenlooper came exactly eight months after dozens of people were shot at the theater, and the day after the executive director of the state Corrections Department was shot and killed at his home. The bills require background checks for private and online gun sales and ban ammunition magazines that hold more than 15 rounds. Two ballot measures have already been proposed to try to undo the restrictions. At the signing ceremony, Hickenlooper was surrounded by lawmakers who sponsored the bills. He looked around with a solemn expression before signing a measure requiring buyers to pay fees for background checks. Each time he signed a bill, applause erupted from lawmakers and their guests, who included Jane Dougherty, whose sister was killed
in the attack at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn.; Sandy Phillips, whose daughter was killed in Aurora; and Tom Mauser, whose son was killed in the 1999 Columbine shooting in Colorado. Phillips, who lost daughter Jessica Ghawi, reminded Hickenlooper that it was the eightmonth anniversary of the theater rampage. â€œYouâ€™ve given us a real gift today,â€? she told the governor. Later, Phillips added: â€œThank you so much. Youâ€™re leading the entire country.â€? Dougherty thanked Hickenlooper with tears in her eyes. Mauser also expressed gratitude. Â
Plaintiffs rest in trial over Gulf oil spill NEW ORLEANS â€” Plaintiffsâ€™ attorneys have rested their case at a trial over the deadly Deepwater Horizon rig explosion and massive 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. A federal judge heard testimony by more than a dozen witnesses called by the Justice Department and private attorneys for Gulf Coast residents and businesses. The plaintiffsâ€™ lawyers rested Wednesday after their last witness, a former employee of cement contractor Halliburton, finished testifying. The trial continues with more testimony by witnesses for rig owner Transocean Ltd, whose chief executive testified Tuesday. BP and Halliburton also will call their own witnesses. U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier is hearing testimony without a jury. Barring a settlement, he could decide how much more money the companies owe for their roles in the nationâ€™s worst offshore oil spill. Â
Obama pledges to keep Iran from nuclear weapon JERUSALEM â€” Eager to reassure an anxious ally, President Barack Obama on Wednesday promised to work closely with Israel and do whatever is necessary to keep Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons, â€œthe worldâ€™s worst weapons.â€? He also pledged to investigate whether chemical weapons were used this week in the neighboring Syriaâ€™s two-year-old civil war. Please see NATION | 6
Health in counties: DeSoto ranks first JACKSON â€” Fastgrowing and relatively prosperous DeSoto County is the healthiest county in Mississippi, while low-income Quitman County is the least healthy. Thatâ€™s according to new rankings from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute. This is the fourth year for the groups to assess nearly every county in the United States. They look at health behaviors such as smoking, obesity, physical inactivity and sexually transmitted infections. They also look at the percentage of uninsured residents and social and economic factors such as education levels and unemployment rates. The five healthiest Mississippi counties, in order, are DeSoto, Lamar, Lafayette, Rankin and Madison. The five least healthy, starting at the bottom, are Quitman, Coahoma, Wilkinson, Holmes and Claiborne. One Mississippi county, Issaquena, was not ranked. Â
Former attorney faces $914,000 in liabilities ABERDEEN â€” The U.S. government is seeking $914,162 in restitution unpaid by a former Mississippi attorney convicted in a tax and mail fraud case in 2009. The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports that prosecutors filed a payment affidavit this week in U.S. District Court in Oxford. U.S. District Judge Sharion Aycock has scheduled an April 2 hearing in Aberdeen for William â€œBillâ€? Catledge to explain why the money hasnâ€™t been paid. Catledge pleaded guilty in June of 2009 to three counts of lying about his income to the Internal Revenue Service and to endorsing, depositing and using a
WIGGINS â€” Authorities have seized 117 mixed-breed dogs from a mobile home in rural Stone County. Chief Deputy Phyllis Olds said authorities went to the Magnolia community mobile home Tuesday after complaints from neighbors. The owner doesnâ€™t live at the home, Olds said. â€œItâ€™s really, really bad,â€? Olds told The Sun Herald. â€œThis is probably one of the worst cases Iâ€™ve seen and Iâ€™ve been doing this 13 years.â€? Olds said authorities found other dogs dead, some lying in the yard and others in black trash bags outside. Still others, including some puppies, were found dead inside the home. After a further review of animal cruelty laws, Olds said a decision was made Wednesday to charge the homeâ€™s

SAVED BY THE BLOOD OF CHRIST!!
The lost are saved by the precious blood of Christ. No one can be saved without the blood of Christ. Christ shed his blood for the remission of sin. “For this is my blood of the new testament which is shed for many for the remission of sins” (Matt 26:28). Only through baptism do we reach the saving blood of Christ. “Know ye not that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life” (Rom 6:3-4). Christians have been washed in the precious blood of Christ. “... Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood” (Rev 1:5). One is not saved until one is baptized into the death of Christ. “Know ye not that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death” (Rom 6:3)? Saul of Tarsus was told, “And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord” (Acts 22:16). Sins are not washed away by the water, but by the precious blood of Christ. One who claims to be saved prior to baptism is claiming to be saved without reaching the saving blood of Christ. One who claims to be saved before baptism is not accepting the teaching of the word of God. Why not accept what the Bible teaches and reject the doctrines and the commandments of men? Worship is vain based upon the doctrines and the commandments of men. “But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men” (Matt 15:9). Many across the religious world are following the doctrines and commandments of men rather than the teachings of the word of God. Are we willing to accept the truth or religious error? “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” ( John 8:32).

6th grader wins state spelling bee JACKSON — Desiree Roby, a 6th grade home schooled student from
Jackson, is Mississippi’s 2013 Spelling Bee Champion. Roby won the Mississippi Spelling Bee in the 26th round Tuesday by successfully spelling “dowager,” defined as an elderly woman of wealth and dignity. She now goes to the 86th Annual Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C., May 28-30. The runner-up was Dev Jaiswal, a 6th grade student from Winston Academy. Dev was eliminated in Round 25 with the word “styptic,” defined as tending to halt bleeding by contracting the tissues or blood
vessels. The Mississippi Spelling Bee was broadcast live on Mississippi Public Broadcasting and was sponsored by the Mississippi Association of Educators.
Tom Coburn, R-Okla., that is aimed at shifting money within the National Park Service to try to make sure the White House remains open to tours. But even if it’s approved, the amendment would appear to fail to accomplish its goal since the reason for closing the White House tours were cuts to the Secret Service, not the Park Service. Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., obtained a vote on an amendment — eagerly sought by the meatpacking and poultry industries — that would offer them relief from food inspector furloughs that threaten to intermittently shutter plants. The measure would fund the day-to-day operating budgets of every Cabinet agency through Sept. 30, provide another $87 billion to fund overseas military operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, and maintain a pay freeze for federal workers. The measure gives the Pentagon much-sought relief from a cash crunch in accounts for training and readiness, gives veteran health programs their scheduled increases and sets the detailed, line-by-line budgets for agencies such as Commerce, NASA, Agriculture and Justice. The measure leaves in place automatic budget cuts of 5 percent to domestic agencies and 8 percent to the Pentagon. The cuts have largely been unnoticed by the public but are making lawmakers uncomfortable, especially as intermittent layoffs known as furloughs begin to take effects next month. The fear of those furloughs compromising safety at 173 airports slated to lose their air traffic controllers led Sen. Jerry Moran, R-Kan., to seek to restore funding
to prevent the layoffs. He was denied an attempt to amend the measure, which led him to drag out debate.
Hattiesburg tables alcohol amendment HATTIESBURG — Hattiesburg City Council tabled a motion to amend alcohol ordinances to allow individuals to possess open beer and light wine containers on downtown streets closed for special events. The Hattiesburg American reports only businesses with current
permits to sell beer and light wine would be allowed to sell during the events. In discussion over the measure Monday, Mayor Johnny DuPree said he felt the council should wait until more input could be gained on the measure. Council President Kim Bradley said some businesses downtown were being put at a disadvantage because their business was fronted by a city sidewalk and could not legally sell beer during events such as Hub Fest. The council voted to table the matter on Tuesday.

Obama, after meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, said of Iran’s nuclear ambitions: “We prefer to resolve this diplomatically and there is still time to do so.” But he added that “all options are on the table” if diplomacy falls short. “The question is, will Iranian leadership seize that opportunity,” he added. The president said Iran’s past behavior indicates that “we can’t even trust yet, much less verify.” Netanyahu, at Obama’s side for a joint news conference, said that while he appreciated U.S. efforts to thwart Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons through diplomacy and sanctions, he said those tools “must be augmented by a clear and credible threat of military action.” Although preventing Iran from developing a nuclear weapon is a top priority of both Israel and the United States, Netanyahu and Obama have differed on precisely how to achieve that.
Senate set to approve huge spending bill WASHINGTON — The Senate moved ahead Wednesday toward a vote on a huge, bipartisan spending bill aimed at keeping the government running through September and ruling out the chance of a government shutdown later this month. Chamber leaders announced Wednesday afternoon that a logjam that has stalled the bill since Tuesday had been broken and that the measure would pass by late afternoon and return to the House, where a vote on Thursday would send it to President Barack Obama for his signature. A vote was scheduled on an amendment by
Fed stands by stimulus, sees stronger economy WASHINGTON — The Federal Reserve said Wednesday that the U.S. economy has strengthened after pausing late last year but still needs the Fed’s extraordinary support to help lower high unemployment. In a statement after a two-day meeting, the Fed stood by its plan to keep short-term interest rates at record lows at least until unemployment falls to 6.5 percent, as long as the inflation outlook remains mild. And it said it would continue buying $85 billion a month in bonds indefinitely to keep longterm borrowing costs down. Investors seemed pleased with the Fed’s decision to maintain its low-interest rate policies. The Dow Jones industrial average was up 76 points nearly an hour after the statement was released at 2 p.m. EDT, up 32 points from just before. The Standard & Poor’s 500 stock index also added to its gains on the day. The unemployment rate has fallen to a fouryear low of 7.7 percent, among many signs of a healthier economy. The Fed noted in its statement that the job market has improved, consumer spending and business investment have increased and the housing market has strengthened. But its latest economic forecasts, also released Wednesday, show that the Fed still doesn’t expect unemployment to reach 6.5 percent until 2015.
The Fed also cautioned that government spending cuts and tax increases could slow the economy. It predicts that growth won’t exceed 2.8 percent this year, slightly lower than its December forecast of 3 percent. A total of 13 Fed officials still think the first rate increase won’t occur until 2015, the same number as in December. One Fed official thinks the first boost in the short-term lending rate won’t occur until 2016.
Assault weapons ban not in Senate bill WASHINGTON — An assault weapons ban won’t be in the guncontrol legislation that Democrats bring to the Senate floor next month, a decision that means the ban’s chances of survival now are all but hopeless. The ban is the most controversial firearms restriction that President Barack Obama and other Democrats have pressed for since an assault-type weapon was used in the December massacre at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn. Rejection by Congress would be a major victory for the National Rifle Association and its supporters and a setback for Obama and the provision’s sponsor, California Sen. Dianne Feinstein. In a tactical decision, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., concluded that including the prohibition in the gun bill would jeopardize the chances for passage of any firearms legislation at all, taking away votes that would be needed to overcome Republican attempts to block the Senate from even taking up the issue.

Natchez man hopes to restore old theater organ BY LINDSEY SHELTON Associated Press
NATCHEZ — Even though he hasn't seen it since he was a boy, local pianist Burnley Cook can reach back into his memory and see the old Baker Grand Theatre's organ in all its original grandeur. “When I was going to the Baker Grand when I was 8, 9, 10 years old, I remember the organ was right in front of the stage, in the middle of the orchestra pit,” Cook said. “I always thought I would love to hear it played.” Cook never heard it, though, because he wasn't
around when silent films dominated movie theatres and organists played theatre organs that imitated orchestras to accompany Charlie Chaplin, Laurel and Hardy and the other greats of the silent film era. The Baker Grand's organ is now sitting in various pieces in Cook's garage after being moved from a storage unit in Vidalia, La., where it sat for the past 40 years. Cook said he first learned of the organ's location last week when Ruth Powers posted on the social networking site Facebook that she was
cleaning out her father's storage unit and found the organ. Powers' father, Robert Shumway, salvaged the organ from the Baker Grand before the theatre met the wrecking ball in the early 1970s. Shumway worked for Baldwin Piano & Organ and Deagan Organ Chimes companies as an organ technician, Cook said. “He was a genius really,” he said. Cook has moved the dozens of metal and wooden pipes, the xylophone and other parts of the organ out of the
storage unit in hopes of restoring the organ. According to the Organ Historical Society, the 1907 Robert Morton organ is a historic instrument, Cook said. “It's not extremely rare, but it is historic,” he said. Cook said he has reached out to other musicians and organ experts in the state and in Baton Rouge about discovering the organ. “They're all just tickled that this organ has been saved,” he said. “Most people thought it had met the wrecking ball, too.” The restoration process
will not be quick, Cook said. “(It will take) at least a couple of years of my life,” he said. “But, if nothing else happens with it, it will be saved because I will hear it played.” But Cook is hopeful the organ garners enough interest so that it can be restored and placed in a public venue in time for Natchez's tricentennial celebration in 2016. “I guess I'm a pipe dreamer myself, but wouldn't it be wonderful if someone restored the Ritz and you could have the organ there played along to old black-and-
white films?” he asked. “Or wouldn't it be wonderful if you had the organ in the City Auditorium being played before the pageant?” The organ will require a great deal of time and effort to restore, as well as tracking down some parts that are missing, but Cook said it will be worth it to preserve a piece of Natchez's history. “It' not a picture; it's not a painting; it's not some thing behind glass,” Cook said. “It's an actual piece of our history that we can hear, that we see and that we can touch.”
Southern Baptists expand north with church plants BY JAY LINDSAY Associated Press
FALL RIVER, Mass. — Pastor Tom Cabral still tells people to meet him at “the bar,” even though it's his church now. Locals best remember his worn building as a former sports bar where a 19-year-old once walked in and shot three suspected rival crack dealers. Eight years later, the mirrored walls, parquet dance floor and bar remain. But the worst trouble may be found around the Sunday school table, where kids try to heed a handwritten list of rules including: “We will walk indoors, not run.” Redemption Fellowship of Fall River is one of dozens of churches the Southern Baptist Convention has planted around New England in the last decade with a multi-million dollar push into territory skeptical of the South and increasingly indifferent to religion. Cabral seems unfazed. He's “indigenous,” he explains, a native of nearby Somerset. He's so eager to share his faith that he regularly carries a wood cross asking, “Are You Ready?” to a traffic island in this southeastern Massachusetts city and evangelizes to anyone who rolls down their window. “I really believe that God wants to change this city,” he said. Since 2002, the Southern Baptists have spent
Financial Freedom Begins With A Plan Let Us Develop A Plan For Your Individual Needs
roughly $5.5 million to plant churches around the region, and have another $800,000 committed for this year, said Jim Wideman, executive director of the Baptist Convention of New England, the Southern Baptist's regional church-planting arm. They've started 133 new churches in that time, a nearly 70 percent increase that brings their regional total to 325. No denomination is investing as much in New England church planting, though Hartford Seminary professor Scott Thumma notes that attendance isn't growing as fast as the number of churches. Thumma said the roughly 30,500 members the denomination had in New England 2010 is a 20 percent increase from a decade ago, according to the Association of Statisticians of American Religious Bodies. That growth is about the same as another religiously
conservative group, the Assemblies of God, which hasn't emphasized church planting. Thumma said Southern Baptists are drawing immigrants and new residents, but there's little proof they've reaching area lifers, including the large Roman Catholic population and increasing numbers of secularists. “I don't see a third Great Awakening happening at the moment,” Thumma said. A Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life study last year found that since 2007, the Northeast had the largest percentage increase nationwide of people who describe themselves as religiously unaffiliated. Meanwhile, a 2012 Gallup poll indicates the six-state New England region hosts the country's five least religious states (Connecticut is No. 11). Southern Baptists, the nation's largest Protestant group with about 16
million members, have been trying since the late 1950s to build a northern presence. But their vigorous, recent church-planting is part of a broader, denomination-wide emphasis at a time when overall membership is declining. Wideman said research indicates that the unchurched are far more likely to be drawn to a new church than one that already exists. And multiple church plants in neighborhood-centric urban areas, though unlikely to draw huge numbers, aim to create enduring Southern Baptist communities, he said. A similarity among the New England church plants is that none of their names include the words “Southern Baptist.” Thumma said it's a clear effort to avoid some of the stereotypes about Southerners, such as negative perceptions of their racial views or reputed “damn-us-all-to-hell” fundamentalism. It's not

malicious, he said, but “they're church-planting by stealth.” Wideman said they never deny they're Southern Baptist, but if it's a barrier to sharing the faith, why broadcast it? The Southern Baptist Convention itself has acknowledged this problem by approving an optional alternative name last summer: Great Commission Baptists. The main concern, Wideman said, is that Northerners will see the churches as excluding them. And he has a question for Southern friends who complain about the tactic: “How well do you think First Yankee Baptist Church would go over in Alabama?” With a thick North Carolina accent, Lyandon Warren can't hide his roots. But in seven
years planting churches in West Pawlet and Poultney, Vt., he finds showing a commitment to the local community is more important. Many New Englanders have zero familiarity with the Bible, so you can't just throw open the doors of a new church and expect people to come in, he said. Instead, his group reached out with novel approaches like offering water and a diaperchanging station at a town-wide tag sale. In Norwich, Conn., Pastor Shaun Pillay's group volunteers for various tasks, from filling sand bags to snow shoveling. It creates a foothold and trust in the community, if not converts, he said. “They say, 'We like what you do, but we don't like your God,'” Pillay said.

Big rebound funds percent from its peak in 2007 to its bottom in 2009. The majority of large-cap funds with the strongest results since October 2007 were able to stem their 2008 losses to less than 30 percent. The best in the bunch, Reynolds Blue Chip Growth (RBCGX), lost just 5.1 percent that year compared with the 38.5 percent decline in the broader market. The fundâ€™s 2008 result had a big impact because of the realities of recovery math. If stocks lose 50 percent of their value, they need a 100 percent gain â€” not 50 percent â€” to get back to where they started. The takeaway for investors is that limiting losses during market declines is crucial, because losses have a bigger impact on long-term results than nominally comparable gains.
For the managers of a select group of mutual funds, the stock marketâ€™s return to its 2007 highs is no big deal. Their funds crossed that recovery milestone some time ago. These funds needed just two or three years to make up for the losses they incurred after the market peaked in October 2007. Thatâ€™s quick work, compared with the nearly four years it took the Dow Jones industrial average to return to its pre-crisis level of 14,164 points after bottoming in March 2009. The Standard & Poorâ€™s 500, a broader index thatâ€™s a benchmark for many stock funds, is less than 1 percent below its level of Oct. 9, 2007. A common strength of these large-cap funds is that they were unusually successful at limiting their losses in 2008 when the S&P 500 plunged 38 percent â€” the market fell 55
Market recovery stars These large-cap stock funds limited losses in 2008, which helped them post the biggest returns since the marketâ€™s peak in October 2007. Expense Min. initial ratio investment

MARKET SUMMARY G
Spring sales preview?
Spotlight on housing
KB Home entered the December-February quarter with the biggest backlog of homes under contract since 2007. Thatâ€™s one reason investors will be looking for the homebuilder to report improved earnings today versus the same period a year earlier. Wall Street also will be listening for an update on how sales are faring this month, which coincides with the crucial spring home-selling season.
The National Association of Realtors reports its latest figures today on sales of previously occupied homes. The U.S. housing market is recovering after stagnating for roughly five years. Steady job gains and near-record-low mortgage rates have encouraged more people to buy. As a result, economists expect that home sales in February grew to an annual rate of nearly 5 million, up from 4.92 million in January.

Wall Street anticipates that Nikeâ€™s earnings declined in its third fiscal quarter, despite stronger revenue. The athletic shoe and clothing companyâ€™s sales have been growing in North America, its largest market, helped by the popularity of its namesake Nike brand, basketball shoes and NFL gear. That has been offset by Europeâ€™s weak economy and a slowdown in growth in China. Nike reports it latest financial results today.

Daughter’s decision to end pregnancy torments mom DEAR ABBY: My 22-year-old daughter became pregnant from a guy she had dated only a few months, but never seriously. After weeks of wondering what she was going to do, she decided that terminating her pregnancy was the best thing to do considering she has limited income and still lives with me. I, however, am pro-life, although I do feel that in cases of rape or incest it is acceptable. My daughter knows how I feel about this. I supported her in her decision, but did not agree with it. Abby, I have taken this really hard. I have cried every day since she had the abortion, and I’m torturing myself thinking this is my fault because I went against everything I believe in when I supported her in her decision. Why am I beating myself up about this? Is it because she’s my daughter, because I am prolife or both? How can I stop blaming myself for her decision? -- TORTURED IN THE SOUTH DEAR TORTURED: The decision about whether or not to terminate the pregnancy wasn’t yours to make; it was your daughter’s. Being pro-life, you have your own convictions, but you acted as a loving parent should -- you supported your child. If you feel you could benefit from counseling to help you through this, ask
your doctor for a referral. D E A R ABBY: My husband and I are having a disagreement and I’m ndering Abigail wif oyou could Van Buren weigh in. We keep a handDear Abby gun hidden in a locked safe in our bedroom. (An access code is required to open it.) We also have a 1-1⁄2-year-old daughter. On the recommendations of a co-worker, we recently hired a baby sitter whom we used for an evening while we attended a party. She seemed like a nice young lady. My problem is, when she arrived, my husband immediately announced that we had a gun upstairs. He felt it was her “right” to know. I think, because the gun isn’t accessible, the information was useless to her and actually may have put our family in danger. How do we know she won’t mention it to someone who will target us for a break-in in order to steal it? To me, having a (secured) firearm in our house is no one else’s business but ours. What do you
think? -- NOT THE WILD WEST DEAR NOT THE WILD WEST: I think you are correct. This is a subject that should have been discussed before the young woman was hired. Your husband exhibited poor judgment by sharing what should have been confidential information. DEAR ABBY: My colleagues and I are concerned about a close friend and co-worker. He insists that it’s not against the law to read books while driving. He says he does it only on highways because everyone is going the same speed and direction and you only need peripheral vision. In every other aspect of his life, this man follows the rules to the letter and is a highly respected teacher. Is it true that this is legal? -- CONCERNED IN OHIO DEAR CONCERNED: Of course not! A distracted driver who is reading books is at least as dangerous as one who is eating, texting, applying makeup, shaving or talking on a cellphone. This “highly respected” teacher doesn’t have my respect; he’s a menace on the highway. (Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.)
Horoscopes ARIES (March 21-April 19). Let your natural state overtake you. If your body feels relaxed and comfortable and free, there’s nothing more you need to do for physical health at the moment. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You may feel the warmth of love inside you, though that is useless to the object of your affection unless you also express the feeling with your actions. Love is a verb. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Today brings lessons about enjoying the ordinary. Chores are pleasant exercises. Errands are a chance to connect with the people in your neighborhood who help the community run smoothly. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your magnanimous actions will surprise those around you because they are not the norm for the situation, though they should be. Keep it up, and you’ll start a trend.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll find the strategies that work for you by mentally trying things on to see what feels right. One size does not fit all, and one method does not work for everyone. Do it your way. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Sometimes, in order to inject a sense of purpose into your routine, you have to remind yourself that what you’re doing is important. People depend on you. Your energy and efforts make a difference. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The levity of spring will surround you wherever you go. It’s almost as though you’re the one making the trees bud and the birds sing. There are highlights to this day that will stay with you forever. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Maybe time will prove that you indulged in unreasonable fantasies today. But it is better to have expectations and live up to them than to have doubts and live down to them.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). If your mojo seems to have slipped out the back when you weren’t looking, no worries. You’ll get it back today after you take a nice, long, unstructured, carefree break. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll feel more in control if you record what’s going on with you now. Take a picture of what you’re doing, write down an idea, or chronicle your day in some other interesting way. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You are a riddle. Just by being who you are and doing what comes naturally, you give others the idea that they must figure you out. Of course, they won’t be able to -- at least not today. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll put yourself out there. Start with a sure thing. Try to get helpful, warm, loving people to lend you a hand. This is no day to try to win over the difficult, prickly ones.

Defending national champs ousted in NIT by Robert Morris The Associated Press
MOON, Pa. — John Calipari and Kentucky experienced an entirely different kind of “oneand-done” in the opening round of the NIT. A year after cutting down the nets in New Orleans, the defending national champions were cut down in their coach’s hometown by Robert Morris, who let a 13-point second-half lead disappear before pulling out a 59-57 victory. Oh how far — and how quickly — the mighty have fallen.
“If there’s any doubters,” Calipari said, “have at it.” Kentucky’s ugly finish to a disappointing season gave the critics plenty of ammunition. Disjointed since the loss of center Nerlens Noel to a devastating knee injury a month ago, Kentucky (2112) looked disinterested and even rattled while playing in a gym that seats 20,000 less than Rupp Arena. The Wildcats lost six of their final 10 games, including a drubbing at the hands of Tennessee and a loss on the road to a
Northeastern Conference school that was a junior college when Calipari was growing up less than a mile away. Mike McFadden hit two free throws with 8.7 seconds remaining and Kyle Wiltjer’s 3-pointer at the horn bounced off the rim, sending students spilling onto the court in the biggest victory in the program’s history — and sending the Wildcats into an uncertain offseason. “This is humbling,” Calipari said. “They think we’re supposed to win 30 a year, 35 a year, go to the
Final Four, win a national title.” Robert Morris (2410) led almost the entire way, never blinking in a rare visit from one of college basketball’s Goliaths. Then again, this isn’t the same Kentucky team that roared through the NCAAs behind stars Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. The Colonials were hardly intimidated, taking it to Kentucky from the opening tip. Robert Morris scored the first 10 points and didn’t back down. Instead, it was Kentucky that
consistently retreated. “We wanted to show we had no fear that we was playing Kentucky,” Robert Morris guard Velton Jones said. “Going into the game, we knew we could be physical with them. They were tall, but not physically big. We just wanted to pressure them, let’em know we wasn’t going anywhere the whole game.” The triumph took some of the pain out of a heartbreaking end to the regular season. Robert Morris cruised to the Northeastern Conference title, but lost to Mount St. Mary’s
in the conference tournament. The defeat dashed the Colonials’ hopes of making the NCAAs, though the chance to play Kentucky hardly felt like a letdown. “It’s probably the greatest consolation prize you can possibly have,” coach Andy Toole said. Lucky Jones led Robert Morris with 15 points, but was ejected for a flagrant foul on Archie Goodwin with 3:41 to play. Kentucky, which trailed by 13 in the second half, managed to tie it twice but could never grab the lead.

CHS linksters fall in opener BY H. LEE SMITH II firstname.lastname@example.org
TUPELO — Corinth was consistent 1-4 but it wasn’t enough to knock off the host Golden Wave. The Warriors finished six strokes behind Tupelo #1 as Corinth opened its 2013 golf late Wednesday at Tupelo Country Club. The 6A host saw Miles Johnson card a 38 for medalist honors as the Wave totaled a 161 in the nine-hole match. Corinth was six strokes back at 167, finishing eight strokes ahead of Tupelo’s second entry. Collin Burns topped the Warriors with a 41. Corinth’s other three scores that counted toward the team total were all one stroke behind Burns at 42. The Warriors return to the links today at Booneville Country Club.

Bid shortage concerns SEC The Associated Press
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Frustrated Southeastern Conference coaches think their league is treated more like a mid-major rather than a BCS conference. The coaches said Monday the perception all year has been that the SEC was having a down year. The NCAA tournament selection committee apparently felt it was reality. Florida, Missouri and Mississippi earned the SEC’s only three NCAA berths, the fewest of any of the six major conferences. The SEC also ranked below the Atlantic 10 and Mountain West, which earned five bids each. The SEC also sent only
three teams to the tournament in 2009. Before then, the SEC hadn’t received as few as three bids since 1990. One of the “things that hurt us was the impression the league’s down,” Kentucky coach John Calipari said. “Everyone seems to say it. That’s why I tell the coaches we’ve got to brag about each other. We’ve got to set that straight.” The three berths continue the SEC’s downward trend. The SEC sent at least five teams to the tournament every year from 1997-2008, but it’s received as many as five NCAA invitations just once (2011) in the five years since. Kentucky, the defending
national champion, tied for second place in the SEC with Alabama and Mississippi. Kentucky and Alabama still ended up in the NIT. Mississippi only got a No. 12 seed in the NCAA field after winning the SEC tournament. Tennessee coach Cuonzo Martin predicted two weeks ago that the SEC would earn six bids. Martin said the SEC’s three bids were an “embarrassment” after the brackets were revealed, and he didn’t back down from those comments Monday. He said Tennessee, Kentucky and Alabama are “NCAA tournament teams” that landed in the NIT. “It’s almost like a mid-ma-
jor mentality in this league, when you’ve got your secondplace team that doesn’t get in the NCAA tournament,” Martin said. “This is a BCS league. It’s one of the best leagues in America. That shouldn’t happen.” The SEC’s non-conference performance indicates it actually wasn’t one of the best leagues in the nation this season. SEC schools went a combined 15-33 against the other five major conferences and had losing records against each of them: 3-6 against the Atlantic Coast Conference, 2-5 against the Big 12, 4-13 Please see SEC | 13

Memphis up next for travel-tested Gaels The Associated Press
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — The questions come seemingly every year for Memphis around this time. After rolling through Conference USA, the Tigers arrive at the NCAA tournament and a skeptical public wonders whether they’ve really been tested during the regular season. Coach Josh Pastner has heard just about enough.
“To say that we haven’t been battle tested is ridiculous,” Pastner said Wednesday. “We’ve won 26 straight Conference USA games. Every time we step on the floor, we get everyone’s best shot. That means if we’re playing East Carolina, they have a goldout. If we’re playing Marshall they have a green-out.” The easiest way for Memphis to silence the doubters would be to win in the NCAA
tournament, and that’s a goal that’s been elusive of late. When the sixth-seeded Tigers take on 11th-seeded Saint Mary’s on Thursday, they’ll be trying for their first victory in the tournament since 2009, when John Calipari was still coach. Standing in the way are the Gaels, who are unbeaten since December against everyone but Gonzaga. Saint Mary’s (28-6) beat Middle Tennessee
on Tuesday night to advance to the round of 64. “We know it’s just going to be a physical game, just like Middle Tennessee,” Saint Mary’s guard Stephen Holt said. “In the tough games in a tournament like this, that’s what it comes down to, is consistency, getting stops and just playing hard and aggressive and making plays.” Please see MEMPHIS | 13
NFL passes helmet rule, ends tuck rule The Associated Press
PHOENIX — If it was good enough for football’s greatest running back, NFL owners figure, it should work in the 21st century. Team owners passed a player safety rule Wednesday barring ball carriers from using the crown of their helmets to make forcible contact with a defender in the open field. Pittsburgh Steelers President Art Rooney put the change succinctly. “Jim Brown never lowered his head,” he said with a smile. “It can be done.” And according to the rules, it must be done beginning this
season. The second significant player safety rule passed this week to help protect defensive players came with much debate. Several coaches and team executives expressed concern about officiating the new rule, but Commissioner Roger Goodell championed it and it passed 31-1. Cincinnati voted no. On Tuesday, the league took the peel-back block out of the game. The changes were the latest involving safety, and head injuries in particular, with the issue receiving heightened attention amid hundreds of
lawsuits filed by former players claiming that the NFL did not do enough to prevent concussions in years past. League officials have defended the NFL’s record and did so again on Wednesday. The tuck rule, one of the most criticized in pro football, was eliminated. Now, if a quarterback loses control of the ball before he has fully protected it after opting not to throw, it is a fumble. The Steelers were the only team to vote against getting rid of the tuck rule. New England and Washington abstained. Video review now will be allowed when a coach challenges
a play that he is not allowed to. But the coach will be penalized or lose a timeout, depending on when he threw the challenge flag. That change stems from Houston’s Thanksgiving victory over Detroit in which Lions coach Jim Schwartz challenged a touchdown run by the Texans’ Justin Forsett. Although officials clearly missed Forsett being down by contact before breaking free on the 81-yard run, when Schwartz threw the red flag on a scoring play that automatically is reviewed, the referee could not go to replay. That loophole has been eliminated.
Gavitt begins as NCAA’s new tournament chief The Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS — Dan Gavitt spent the last nine months preparing for his own private version of March madness — weather concerns, damaged buildings, blackouts, even terrorist threats. He’s ready for just about contingency over the next three weeks.
While college basketball fans tune in to the NCAA tournament, Gavitt will be working hard behind the scenes to avoid all the potholes, pitfalls and pressure that come on the road to the Final Four — and not just for the 64 remaining teams that open second-round play today or Friday.
“I’m excited, I’m anxious, I think both at the same time,” Gavitt told The Associated Press as he prepares to run his first NCAA tourney. “I was growing up around the game of college basketball literally my whole life, but I also feel like I have an awesome sense of responsibility to manage this event the way it’s been
managed the last 74 years.” Gavitt has been a regular face in college basketball crowd for years. Now he has a longer title, NCAA executive vice president for men’s basketball championships, a new boss and an entirely different perspective on the NCAA’s marquee event.

against the Big East, 2-4 against the Big Ten, 4-5 against the Pac12. Some of the reasons for the SECâ€™s struggles were obvious. More players were taken in the NBA draft from SEC schools than any other conference last year. Tennessee forward Jeronne Maymon, one of only two returning all-SEC players from last season, missed the entire year with a knee injury. Kentucky center Nerlens Noel was challenging for SEC player of the year honors before tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee last month. LSU, Mississippi State and South Carolina had new coaches. â€œWhen you have coaching changes, when you have player turnover, when you have departures of really good players, itâ€™s going to take some time,â€? Florida coach Billy Donovan said. â€œThe unfortunate part with all those transitions going on is you really pay the price in November. ... What happens is your league gets labeled in November and December.â€? Donovan believes the league got better as the season wore on, but it couldnâ€™t prove that because its members were facing one another instead of playing teams from other conferences. But itâ€™s tough for SEC teams to schedule non-conference foes later in the year, particularly now that it has adopted an 18game league schedule. If SEC teams donâ€™t schedule quality non-conference foes later in the season, they must deliver better results against better teams early in the year. Five of the SECâ€™s 14 teams ranked lower than 230th in nonconference strength of schedule. Not only did the SEC schedule weak teams, it occasionally lost to them. Mississippi State fell to Alabama A&M, a Southwestern Athletic Conference team that finished 11-20. Vanderbilt lost to Marist, a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference program that went 10-21.

Memphis reached the NCAA title game in 2008 and went to the round of 16 the following year. Pastner took over after Calipariâ€™s departure and has gone 61-13 in Conference USA games, including the leagueâ€™s tournament. In 2011, the Tigers were a No. 12 seed in the NCAA tournament and lost their opener. They lost again last year as a No. 8 seed. â€œI recognize people are going to be on me if we donâ€™t advance in the tournament. I recognize that, but Iâ€™m OK with that,â€? Pastner said. â€œIf you ask anyone in our business, in our profes-
sion â€” in fact, (Michigan State coach) Tom Izzo said it on CBS when they were playing Ohio State â€” a true measure of a team is what you do during your conference play. Thatâ€™s a tremendous measure if youâ€™ve had a successful season or not because itâ€™s over a two-and-a-half, threemonth period.â€? Memphis and Gonzaga are the only teams this season that went undefeated in conference play both in the regular season and the league tournament. Gonzaga beat Saint Maryâ€™s three times while sweeping through the West Coast Conference, but the Gaels have built an impressive program of their own, reaching the NCAA round of 16 in 2010.
Matthew Dellavedova emerged from a shooting slump to score 22 points in the First Four game against Middle Tennessee. â€œHeâ€™s a very smart guard. It seems like heâ€™s been playing the game for a while,â€? Memphis guard Joe Jackson said. â€œHeâ€™s not the fastest guy, but heâ€™s one of the smarter guys in the country.â€? Jackson is Memphisâ€™ leading scorer at 13.6 points per game. Saint Maryâ€™s has already spent plenty of time traveling. The California school opened the tournament in Dayton, Ohio, on Tuesday, then made a quick trip north to Auburn Hills. The Gaels could be fatigued after already
playing a game in this tournament â€” or they could be less rusty than Memphis. â€œItâ€™s whatever you make it. Weâ€™re going to try and make it an advantage,â€? Bennett said. â€œI do like this about it: We hadnâ€™t played in a week, and it would have been 10 days since we played in our conference tournament. ... Playing Tuesday shortened that up a little bit.â€? Dellavedova averages 16 points per game, one of four Saint Maryâ€™s players in double figures. Guard Jorden Page didnâ€™t play against Middle Tennessee because of a right knee injury, and he isnâ€™t expected back for the game against Memphis.
