Museum sees substantial visitation increase BY JEBB JOHNSTON

Crossroads Museum visitation saw a substantial increase during the past year. Executive Director Brandy Steen reported in Thursday’s annual museum meeting that visitation reached, 3,800, climbing from about 2,500 in the prior year. Steen attributes that increase

to visits associated with the Civil War Sesquicentennial. In the coming year, “We hope to see an increase,� she said, “but you never know. It depends on the tourism season.� The long-running “Civil War Archives� exhibit, which was tied to the sesquicentennial, is ending, with “Mississippi Scenes,� a collection of original paintings by noted watercolorist

Thomas “Thom� Cochran, will begin April 15. He lived in Jackson and died in 2006. Running through May 20, that exhibit will be followed by an exhibit of World War II items from the archives, including a couple of uniforms, photos, rifles and other items. The museum is planning a new permanent exhibit featuring Jackie Simpson, a line-

backer who played in the CFL and AFL, as well as some other notable athletes who were from Corinth. The annual photo contest will be back for the 12th year, and Steen hopes to see last year’s growth continue. The contest drew 219 entries in 2012, a record response. She is aiming for 300 entries this year. The museum will also host

the 12th edition of the annual Heritage Festival in conjunction with October’s Green Market, which the museum is now managing. For the coming year, Sandy Walker will continue as president of the museum board. Bryan Clausel is vice president; Jack Griffith, treasurer; Lila Wade, secretary; and Becky Williams, executive member at large.

Kids share love for pets at First Baptist show BY STEVE BEAVERS

There were no lions, tigers or bears among the bunch. But there was still a big variety of animals at the First Baptist Kindergarten/Preschool Pet Show Friday morning. The three, four and five-yearold students had been waiting all year to put their pets on display. Inclement weather had forced the show to be pushed back from Wednesday in the church courtyard. Aside from the usual pets of dogs, students with the help of their parents brought such

unique animals as a rooster and squirrel. “The kids were so excited to see all the different pets,� said kindergarten/preschool director Jackie Huskey. “They have talked about it all year and wanted to know when we were going to have the pet show.� The pet show has been a tradition at the school for over 20 years, according to Huskey. “We have had lots of different animals over the years,� she said. “One year a child brought a pony and everyone got a

Works produced for different assignments in the art class bring a wide variety of styles, textures and visions to the paintings and dimensional pieces on display. The students produced the art under the instruction of Lynn Haynie, who is in her final year as art instructor. “I have been blessed to be able to teach what I love,” she said. Haynie enjoys seeing the work go from the classroom to the downtown gallery. “I see it while they are working on it, but when it’s all up somewhere else like the gallery, you see it with a whole different perspective,” she said. The dimensional works include assemblage, a technique using found objects. Other works include paintings with raised surfaces, pottery, chalk pastels on black paper, and heated plastic that has been shaped like glass art. A centerpiece of the exhibit is “fractured hearts,” in which the students created hearts, divided them into quarters and mixed them up for dramatic effect. The exhibit is part of the gallery’s educational outreach. “I always find it inspirational to see the wide range of creative approaches that the children bring to the different mediums,” said

The game gives the kids an opportunity to see policemen away from the job, according to Gooch. “Most kids portray police as bad, but we are here to support the community and we want to be

involved with kids … this lets them see us outside of the department.” Grice also said the game will serve as a leadin to the club’s healthy lifestyle program. “The week will be a fun week for the kids and community members,” said the unit director. “We want to show the community how great futures begin at the Boys & Girls Club.” The police department’s contest versus

SCV Camps awards two BY BOBBY J. SMITH

Today is Sunday, April 7, the 97th day of 2013. There are 268 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On April 7, 1953, the U.N. General Assembly ratified Dag Hammarskjold of Sweden as the new secretary-general, succeeding Trygve Lie of Norway.

On this date: In 1788, an expedition led by Gen. Rufus Putnam established a settlement at present-day Marietta, Ohio. In 1798, the Mississippi Territory was created by an act of Congress, with Natchez as the capital. In 1862, Union forces led by Gen. Ulysses S. Grant defeated the Confederates at the Battle of Shiloh in Tennessee. In 1922, the Teapot Dome scandal began as Interior Secretary Albert B. Fall signed a secret deal to lease U.S. Navy petroleum reserves to his friends, oilmen Harry F. Sinclair and Edward L. Doheny. In 1927, the image and voice of Commerce Secretary Herbert Hoover were transmitted live from Washington to New York in the first successful long-distance demonstration of television. In 1939, Italy invaded Albania, which was annexed less than a week later. In 1949, the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical “South Pacific” opened on Broadway. In 1959, a referendum in Oklahoma repealed the state’s ban on alcoholic beverages. In 1966, the U.S. Navy recovered a hydrogen bomb that the U.S. Air Force had lost in the Mediterranean Sea off Spain following a B-52 crash. In 1969, the Supreme Court, in Stanley v. Georgia, unanimously struck down laws prohibiting private possession of obscene material. In 1978, President Jimmy Carter announced he was deferring development of the neutron bomb, a high-radiation weapon. In 1983, space shuttle astronauts Story Musgrave and Don Peterson went on the first U.S. spacewalk in almost a decade as they worked in the open cargo bay of Challenger for nearly four hours.

The local Sons of Confederate Veterans Camps has awarded two $500 scholarships to Alcorn County students. Recipients of the scholarships are Katie Hancock of Alcorn Central High School and Clayton Allred, a Corinth High School student. In 2011 the Colonel William P. Rogers Sons of Confederate Veterans Camp #321 voted to establish two $500 scholarships in honor of the camp’s two Real Sons — Willie J. Cartwright and James J. Nelms — the two last real sons of Confederate veterans in the Mississippi, men whose fathers fought in the Civil War. Cartwright was the son of Private John Henry of the 1st Mississippi Infantry. Nelms was the son of Private James J. Nelms

Alcorn Central High School student Katie Hancock is the recipient of the Willie J. Cartwright Scholarship. Sr., of Company B, 8th Mississippi Cavalry. “Mr. Cartwright and

Mr. Nelms were two super guys and the camp wants to continue to

honor them,” said Camp Commander Larry Mangus.


The Reals Sons scholarships are available to any Alcorn County high school senior who plans to attend a Mississippi college or university. Points are awarded for academic excellence, leadership accomplishments, community service and a one-page essay on “Why Our Southern Heritage Should be Preserved.” Almost 40 applications were received this year and the competition was very strong, Mangus said. “Two outstanding students were selected from the class of 2013,” said the camp commander. The scholarships are awarded each year on April 1. Applications will be available in the high school counselors’ offices and are due by March 1. (For more information about the Col. William P. Rogers SCV camp visit www.battleofcorinth. com.)

ville were part of the first-year program last semester. “We are encouraging kids to get active and the right way to exercise,” said Coke 10K race cocoordinator Amy Smith. Smith visits Kossuth Elementary two days a week. Alan Smith and Get Fit Program Director Lindsey Brawner are also part of the active program at Kossuth and Rienzi. Magnolia Regional Health Center employees are involved with Get Fit at Corinth Elementary. Students begin with stretching and then it's constant motion for an hour. “Kossuth has a good program in place,” said Smith. “We go in and show them the proper way to stretch and how to pace themselves when it comes to running.” The curriculum assist schools in meeting the activity goals as outlined by the USDA. Some of the areas the

program is designed to help are: ■ Provide opportunities for students to develop the knowledge and skills for specific physical activities. ■ Teach students the importance of energy balance through healthy eating and regular exercise. ■ Ensure student's regular participation in physical activity. ■ Teach students the short- and long-term benefits of a physically active and healthful lifestyle. “The big thing is to keep them moving and their heart rate up,” said Smith. Smith said students will begin working on goal setting in the coming weeks. Those who are part of the program will receive a certificate to sign up for the May 4 10K at discounted rate. “The kids are really enjoying it and are anxious to run every day we are here,” added Smith. “They want to learn the importance of a healthy lifestyle.”

ATTENTION all Old and New

Ten years ago: U.S. troops in more than 100 U.S. armored vehicles rumbled through downtown Baghdad, seizing one of Saddam Hussein’s opulent palaces and toppling a 40foot statue of the Iraqi ruler. The Supreme Court voted 6-3 to uphold a 50-year-old Virginia law making it a crime to burn a cross as an act of intimidation. The Boston Globe won the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for public service for its coverage of the priest sex abuse scandal. Syracuse won the NCAA basketball tournament with an 8178 victory over Kansas. Actor Russell Crowe married Danielle Spencer in Nana Glen, New South Wales, Australia, on his 39th birthday (the couple separated in 2012).

Session ends, but more work remains BY CLAYTON STANLEY Columnist

Thursday marked the end of the 2013 Regular Session of the Mississippi Legislature, a day referred to by those familiar with the process as Sine Die. It is important to note that while the “regular” session is complete, the work of the legislature is not. Long before the session came to an end, it became apparent that Governor Bryant would have to call his first “special” session as governor to address the issue of Medicaid. The Medicaid program is currently set to expire at midnight on June 30. Not only will there be no legal mechanism to operate the program, but there is also no money in the budget to fund it. Late last week the $840 million Medicaid appropriations bill failed to garner the required number of votes in the House, causing it to die. Everyone seems to agree that a solution has got to be reached before July 1, but what the solution will look like is anyone’s guess. This situation is beginning to resemble the tort reform debates a decade ago where members held special session after special session waiting to see who would flinch first. Time will tell how this ultimately gets resolved, but it appears there is more political blood to be spilled before that happens. Medicaid aside, the 2013 session is generally being scored as a successful one. Education policy changes seemed to be the most talked about issues throughout the session. Most notable was the passage of legislation allowing the formation of charter schools in low performing districts throughout the state. Charter schools was a major campaign issue for many Republicans in the last election. While some consider what passed to be watered down, passing a charter school law was a major victory after unsuccessful attempts in prior years. While charter schools have been the most talked about, several other educations bills were passed. Legislation establishing a “third grade reading gate” requiring students with reading deficiencies in the third grade receive intense training and be retained. Other pilot programs were established to implement pre-K in certain low performing districts and a pilot program for merit based teacher pay. Legislators passionate about reforming education see these as good first steps, but certainly aspire for more changes to the way Mississippi educates its young. While less discussed, significant attention was given legislation to foster economic development and job creation. Several bills offering various incentives and tax credits to business and industry to encourage capital investment and hiring. Incentives were offered to manufacturers, oil and gas companies and motion pictures. All were offered some form of tax credit incentive should they come to or invest further in Mississippi. The final story of the Mississippi session is the budget. Apart from the unfinished business surrounding the Medicaid budget, this year’s budgeting process went smoothly, particularly as compared to previous sessions. The primary reason is that they had slightly more revenue to appropriate and agencies are recognizing that their slimmed down budgets of the last few years are the new normal. Despite modest revenue increases, appropriators have resisted raising budgets. After failing to do so last year, legislators were finally able to pass a bond bill for capital projects across the state. Members agreed to a $196 million bond package with roughly half of the money going to the states eight universities and colleges and an additional $25 million going to the community colleges. The total bond package is nearly $50 million less than the state will pay off this year – another testament that a sense of fiscal responsibility remains in Jackson.

Gun violence more complex than Carrey’s video The tragic shooting death of Jackson Police Department Det. Eric Smith inside JPD headquarters Thursday underscores the ongoing national debate about gun violence and efforts to stem that violence with a deluge of new laws driven by a wide variety of motivations. A murder suspect reportedly killed Smith with his own weapon during an interview on the third floor of JPD headquarters. Sources told The Clarion-Ledger newspaper that the detective and suspect got into an argument during the interview and the suspect reportedly overpowered Smith, took his weapon from him and shot him. Another JPD officer then shot the homicide suspect, sources told the paper. Against that raw backdrop — and others like it from Newtown, Connecticut to Aurora, Colorado, and other venues like them across the country — the debate over proposed federal and state gun laws roils and rages. A recent study by the

Center for American Progress — a liberal or selfdescribed “progressive” think tank Sid Salter that supports Columnist e x p a n s i v e gun control laws — has entered the fray with the contention that there is a strong correlation between “weak state gun laws and high rates of gun violence.” The study examined overall firearm deaths in 2010, overall firearm deaths from 2001 through 2010, firearm homicides and suicides in 2010, firearm homicides among women from 2001 through 2010, firearm deaths among children ages 0 to 17, from 2001 through 2010, law-enforcement agents feloniously killed with a firearm from 2002 through 2011, aggravated assaults with a firearm in 2011, crime-gun export rates in 2009, and percentage of crime guns with a short “time to crime” in 2009. Based on that study, the

group ranked the results of those factors and produced “an overall state ranking for the prevalence of gun violence” that saw Louisiana ranked tops in gun violence in the U.S. followed in order by Alaska, Alabama, Arizona, Mississippi, South Carolina, New Mexico, Missouri, Arkansas, and Georgia. The study claims that in 2010, Mississippi had the second-worst gun-murder rate in the nation, 92 percent higher than the national average. The common denominators among the “worst 10” states in the study? The list includes states that are conservative, primarily rural, sparsely populated, and nine of the 10 states voted against President Barack Obama. Clearly, the implication is that rural, conservative states are misguided about their support for Second Amendment rights and should follow more “progressive” states in adopting more restrictive gun laws. Perhaps in illustration of that sentiment, actor Jim Carrey has created a sensation on the website Fun- in portraying people who value their Second Amendment rights as rubes on a Hee-Haw set with the late Charleton Heston as the whipping boy of the satire. Carrey plays both Heston and a cowboy singer named “Lonesome Earl” on a video entitled “Cold Dead Hand.” Funny stuff. And after all, don’t we all enjoy our “HewHaw” lives here far from Hollywood? Don’t we? Meanwhile, a decent Mississippi police detective doing his job is gunned down in police headquarters. How many new gun laws would have saved that detective’s life while he tried to protect all of our lives? And would that senseless crime have been avoided if we were in a “progressive” state like Massachusetts with tougher gun laws? After all, don’t tougher gun laws reduce gun crime? Det. Smith would likely beg to differ. (Daily Corinthian and syndicated columnist Sid Salter can be contactedat 601-507-8004 or

Has a war with North Korea become inevitable? “If you see 10 troubles coming down the road, you can be sure that nine will run into the ditch before they reach you,” said Calvin Coolidge, who ever counseled patience over the rash response. Unfortunately, the troubles presented by North Korea’s Kim Jong Un seem unlikely to run into a ditch before they reach us. For Kim has crawled out on a limb. He has threatened to attack U.S. forces in Korea and bases in Asia, even U.S. cities. He has declared the truce that ended the Korean War dead and that “a state of war” exists with the South. All ties to the South have been cut. The United States has sent B-52s and stealth fighters to Korea and anti-missile warships to the Sea of Japan. Two B-2 bombers flew from Missouri to Korea and back in a provocative fly-by of the Hermit Kingdom. And both South Korea and we have warned that, should the North attack, swift retribution will follow. Kim Jong Un is in a box. If he launches an attack, he risks escalation into war. But if his bluster about battling the United States turns out to be all bluff, he risks becoming an object of ridicule in Asia and at home. Why is he playing with fire? Because his father and grandfather did, and got away with murder.

In 1968, Kim Il Sung hijacked the U.S. intelligence ship Pueblo and held its crew Pat h o s t a g e . Buchanan A m e r i c a , tied down Columnist in Vietnam, did nothing. In 1976, North Koreans axmurdered two U.S. officers in the DMZ. In 1983, Pyongyang tried to assassinate South Korea’s president in Burma and blew up three members of his cabinet. In 1987, North Koreans blew up a South Korean airliner. These unpunished atrocities all occurred during the rule of Kim Il Sung. Under Kim Jong Il, Pyongyang torpedoed a South Korean patrol boat, killing 47, and shelled a South Korean island, killing four. Neither Washington nor Seoul retaliated. The danger is that Kim Jong Un believes he, too, can get away with murder and he, too, will be appeased with aid. Yet neither President Obama nor President Park Geun Hye can be seen as tolerating another North Korean outrage. To avoid a collision, a diplomatic path will have to be opened for Kim to back away from the confrontation he has provoked. But, in the longer term, America

has to ask herself: What are we doing, 20 years after the end of the Cold War, with 28,000 troops in Korea and thousands on the DMZ facing the North? Why is South Korea’s defense our responsibility, 60 years after President Eisenhower ended the Korean War? For over a decade, some of us have urged the United States to pull all U.S. troops off the peninsula. Had we done so, we would not be in the middle of this crisis now. South Korea is not inherently weaker than the North. It has twice the population, and its economy is 40 times as large. And the South has access to U.S. weapons superior to anything the North can acquire. After Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq, as Robert Gates said, any defense secretary who recommends that America fight a new land war in Asia ought to have his head examined. Why, then, are we still on the DMZ? The long-run danger that has to be addressed is this: Kim Jong Un is about 30, and his life expectancy, absent a coup, is 40 or 50 years. Yet, within a few years, if he persists as he promises to do, he could have dozens of nucleararmed missiles pointed at South Korea, Japan and

Okinawa. And if Pyongyang becomes a nuclear weapons state, it is difficult to see how Seoul and Tokyo will not be required to match its nuclear arsenal, as Pakistan felt compelled to match India’s. What would China do? Some Chinese are urging Beijing to dump North Korea as an unreliable and uncontrollable ally that could drag them into war. Hardliners are said to be urging China to stand by her longtime ally and buffer state. Whatever comes of this crisis, U.S. policy, seemingly frozen in the 1950s, is in need of review. We cannot indefinitely be responsible for the defense of South Korea from an erratic dictator hell-bent on acquiring nuclear missiles. In the near-term, even a conventional war on that most heavily armed border on earth, between South and North Korea, would be a calamity. To avert it, if necessary, Obama should pick up the phone, call North Korea and talk directly to Kim. In a far graver crisis, perpetrated by Nikita Khrushchev in 1962, John F. Kennedy did not hesitate to communicate with the culprit. (Daily Corinthian columnist Patrick J. Buchanan is the author of “Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?”)

Nation Briefs Associated Press

Sandy Hook families bring emotion to debate WASHINGTON — Bringing their emotional advocacy to the national gun debate, families of those killed in the Connecticut school shooting are appearing with President Barack Obama and walking the halls of Congress to plead for stricter regulations. They already have helped push through the nation’s most restrictive firearms law, which Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, DConn., signed Thursday. With no lobbying background and fueled by the power of their emotions, a group of Sandy Hook Elementary School families can take credit for helping shape the measure as it moved through the state Legislature. Now they’re trying to do the same in Washington, where gun legislation is facing tough resistance. Congress is returning from spring break, and Newtown, Conn., families plan to spend the coming week on Capitol Hill. Their goal of their personal appeals is to speak to every senator who has yet to express support for the gun legislation, and to show how the Dec. 14 shooting has affected their lives. “I’m not a constitutional scholar and I’m not a Second Amendment specialist,” David Wheeler, who lost his 6-year-old son, Benjamin, said in a telephone interview. “I don’t know the ins and outs of gun policy but I know ...,” his voice trailed off as a sob catches in his throat. “But I now know one of the things that no father should ever know. And in our system of representative government we have to use our voices.” The families of the 20 children and six staff members killed in the December shooting at Sandy Hook are a diverse group politically. They include gun own-

ers, and Democrats and Republicans. They don’t always agree on gun policy. One father — Mark Mattioli, who lost his 6-year-old son, James — attended a National Rifle Association news conference last week to endorse a proposal to train school staffers as armed security officers. But relatives of nine victims have come together with a nonprofit group called Sandy Hook Promise to sign a letter sent Thursday to senators. It asks them to vote to expand background checks for gun purchases, strengthen laws against gun trafficking and ban ammunition magazines with more than 10 rounds. Nicole Hockley wonders if her 6-year-old son, Dylan, might be alive if shooter Adam Lanza hadn’t been able to carry 10 magazines that held 30 rounds each into the school that day.

Discouraged Americans leave labor force WASHINGTON — After a full year of fruitless job hunting, Natasha Baebler just gave up. She’d already abandoned hope of getting work in her field, counseling the disabled. But she couldn’t land anything else, either — not even a job interview at a telephone call center. Until she feels confident enough to send out resumes again, she’ll get by on food stamps and disability checks from Social Security and live with her parents in St. Louis. “I’m not proud of it,” says Baebler, who is in her mid-30s and is blind. “The only way I’m able to sustain any semblance of self-preservation is to rely on government programs that I have no desire to be on.” Baebler’s frustrating experience has become all too common nearly four years after the Great Recession ended: Many Americans are still so

discouraged that they’ve given up on the job market. Older Americans have retired early. Younger ones have enrolled in school. Others have suspended their job hunt until the employment landscape brightens. Some, like Baebler, are collecting disability checks. It isn’t supposed to be this way. After a recession, an improving economy is supposed to bring people back into the job market. Instead, the number of Americans in the labor force — those who have a job or are looking for one — fell by nearly half a million people from February to March, the government said Friday. And the percentage of working-age adults in the labor force — what’s called the participation rate — fell to 63.3 percent last month. It’s the lowest such figure since May 1979. The falling participation rate tarnished the only apparent good news in the jobs report the Labor Department released Friday: The unemployment rate dropped to a four-year low of 7.6 percent in March from 7.7 in February. People without a job who stop looking for one are no longer counted as unemployed. That’s why the U.S. unemployment rate dropped in March despite weak hiring. If the 496,000 who left the labor force last month had still been looking for jobs, the unemployment rate would have risen to 7.9 percent in March.

Hosey gets 40 years for armed robbery GULFPORT — Kewam Hosey has been sentenced to 40 years in prison for armed robbery for his role in a home invasion in 2010. However, the Sun Herald reports that a Harrison County jury could not decide if Hosey was guilty in the capital murder or murder in the death of Courtney Beavers. Assistant District Attorney Crosby Parker says prosecutors will ask for a new trial in the slaying of the 30-yearold Beavers. Authorities say Beavers was shot in the thigh and shoulder and died when the bullet to the shoulder traveled to his lungs and heart. Authorities say Beaver was killed in one of two home invasions in which Hosey and three others participated on July 2, 2010. The three others have been convicted and sentenced.

Ex-police officer acquitted of bribery JACKSON — Former Jackson police Sgt. Richard McGahey has been acquitted of charges that he allegedly accepted a $250 bribe to help secure a field release for a suspect. A Hinds County jury returned the verdict Friday. McGahey had been arrested last September. McGahey testified that the money a FBI informant gave him was repayment of a loan, not a bribe. He testified he often loaned money to the man, who had worked as an informant over the years. McGahey said that he often performed field releases for those with warrants, due to jail overcrowding. McGahey was a 20year veteran of the Jackson Police Department. The FBI’s informant

2 charged in film tax credit case BATON ROUGE, La. — The owners of two Baton Rouge film production companies are each charged by federal prosecutors with participating in a conspiracy that cost Louisiana taxpayers at least $1.2 million. The Advocate reports that Daniel Garcia and Matthew Keith are each charged in a federal bill of information with allegedly working with unnamed others in a conspiracy to commit wire fraud. Prosecutors say Garcia owned and operated DMG Holdings LLC and Louisiana Film Finishers LLC. Matthew Keith owned and operated Dirty District Entertainment LLC. The case involves the Louisiana Motion Picture Industry Development Tax Credit Program. It is designed to encourage film and video production in the state. It provides a 30 percent state income tax credit on qualified expenditures for the production of films in Louisiana. In the bill of information, prosecutors say the tax credits are “fully transferable” once issued by the state. Keith allegedly worked with others, including a man identified as “D.G.,” owner and operator of DMG Holdings and Louisiana Film Finishers. “D.G.” is an apparent reference to Daniel Garcia based on the court filings. Through “multiple transfers of funds among four separate companies,” the charge filed against Keith alleges, “D.G. received approximately $1.2 million of tax credits to which he was not entitled.” Wire transfers to banks in Baton Rouge from banks in Gulfport, Miss., and Irving, Texas,

were among evidence prosecutors cited against both Keith and “D.G.,” according to Keith’s charge. Daniel Garcia, identified in his bill of information as owner of both DMG Holdings and Louisiana Film Finishers, allegedly used the same tactics to fraudulently obtain “$900,000 of tax credits to which he was not entitled.”

South Korea and Japan, which host U.S. military bases. No one can tell with any certainty how much technological progress North Korea has made, aside from perhaps a few people close to its secretive leadership. If true, it is unlikely the North would launch such an attack because the retaliation would be devastating. The North’s third nuclear test on Feb. 12, which prompted the toughest U.N. Security Council penalties yet, is presumed to have advanced its ability to miniaturize a nuclear device. Experts say it’s easier to design a nuclear warhead that works on a shorter-range missile than one for an intercontinental missile that could target the U.S. The assessment of David Albright at the Institute for Science and International Security think-tank is that North Korea has the capability to mount a warhead on its Nodong missile, which has a range of 800 miles (1,280 kilometers) and

by friends and foes, is not his “ideal plan” but offers “tough reforms” for benefit programs and scuttles some tax breaks for the wealthy. That’s a mix, he contends, that will provide long-term deficit reduction without harming the economy. In his first comments about the 2014 spending blueprint he’s set to release Wednesday, Obama said he intends to reduce deficits and provide new money for public works projects, early education and job training. “We don’t have to choose between these goals — we can do both,” Obama said in his weekly radio and Internet address, broadcast Saturday. Obama’s plan for the budget year that begins Oct. 1 calls for slower growth in government benefits programs for the poor, veterans and the elderly, as well as higher taxes, primarily from the wealthy. Some details, made public Friday, drew a fierce response from liberals, labor unions and advocates for older Americans. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, was not impressed, either. “It’s a compromise I’m willing to accept in order to move beyond a cycle of short-term, crisis-driven decision-making, and focus on growing our economy and our middle class for the long run,” Obama said. Obama proposes spending cuts and revenue increases that would result in $1.8 trillion in deficit reductions over 10 years, replacing $1.2 trillion in automatic spending cuts that are otherwise poised to take effect over the next 10 years.

could hit in South Korea and most of Japan. He said in his analysis, published after the latest nuclear test, that it is an uncertain estimate, and the warhead’s reliability remains unclear. Albright contends that the experience of Pakistan could serve as precedent. Pakistan bought the Nodong from North Korea after its first flight test in 1993, then adapted and produced it for its own use. Pakistan, which conducted its first nuclear test in 1998, is said to have taken less than 10 years to miniaturize a warhead before that test, Albright said. North Korea also obtained technology from the trafficking network of A.Q. Khan, a disgraced pioneer of Pakistan’s nuclear program, acquiring centrifuges for enriching uranium. According to the Congressional Research Service, Khan may also have supplied a Chinese-origin nuclear weapon design he provided to Libya and Iran, which could have helped the North in developing a warhead for a ballistic missile. But Siegfried Hecker at Stanford University’s Center for International Security and Cooperation, who has visited North Korea seven times and been granted unusual access to its nuclear facilities, is skeptical the North has advanced that far in miniaturization of a nuclear device.

The AP has asked for the video to be released under open records laws, but authorities have not responded to the request. Powell, 23, was being questioned about the stabbing death of a man whose body was found Monday near a Jackson street. Ken Winter, executive director of the Mississippi Association of Chiefs of Police, said it’s not unusual for a suspect to be unrestrained during questioning. “It depends on the demeanor of the individual at the time. I would assume that the detective had no reason to believe this guy was aggressive or he wouldn’t have been interviewing him in the first place,” said Winter, who spent 36 years in law enforcement as a police chief, a detective and as director of the state crime lab.

The suspect, Jeremy Powell, was not handcuffed during questioning at the Jackson Police Department on Thursday, the person said on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk about the ongoing investigation. Powell overpowered Det. Eric Smith and took his gun, shooting the veteran detective four times before shooting himself in the head inside a third-floor room of the department’s headquarters, the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation said. Other officers heard the shots ring out and rushed to the interview room, but both men were dead.

STARKVILLE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Mississippi 4-H has annual in-service training and leadership development opportunities to maintain excellence among its leaders, giving participating young people the best opportunity to thrive later in life. A recent study by the Tufts University Institute for Applied Research in Youth Development found 4-H succeeds at helping young people reach their full potential. 4-H, the youth development program of the Mississippi State University Extension Service, is supported by a team of professional staff and volunteers who train regularly to stay on top of their game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mississippiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 4-H professionals are determined to provide the best possible programming to the youth of our state,â&#x20AC;? said Paula Threadgill, associate director of the MSU Extension Service. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We continually train our volunteers to keep their skills fresh, and we strive to make every 4-H opportunity the best possible for our young people. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We understand the importance of training up the future leaders of the state, so Mississippi 4-H does all it can to equip our adult leaders to be most effective with our youth,â&#x20AC;? Threadgill said.

Tufts University recently released results of a longitudinal study that began in 2002. The 4-H Study of Positive Youth Development continues today, surveying more than 7,000 adolescents from diverse backgrounds in 44 states. The study was funded by contributions from the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s land-grand universities, including MSU, and the National 4-H Council. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The structured learning, encouragement and adult mentoring that young people receive through their participation in 4-H plays a vital role in helping them achieve future life success,â&#x20AC;? a report on the study stated. When compared with other young people, those involved in 4-H were found to have a higher educational achievement, a greater motivation for future, education and an increased commitment to community service. 4-H focuses on the head, heart, hands and health of young people in the program. These emphases seem to pay off in real-world advantages. According to the Tufts study, 4-Hâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ers -- regardless of their background, socioeconomic status, ethnicity or gender -- are 3.4 times more likely to delay sexual activity by Grade 12 and have shown significantly lower drug, alcohol and cigarette use than their peers. They are also 2.3 times

more likely to be physically active than their peers. The research-proven advantages continue in school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Young people in 4-H report better grades, higher levels of academic competence and an elevated level of engagement at school,â&#x20AC;? the study found. 4-Hâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ers are nearly twice as likely to go to college and are also more likely to pursue careers in science, engineering or computer technology. Girls often fall behind boys in science classes, but 4-H girls are twice as likely as their peers to pursue science careers. To keep these good results happening, Mississippi 4-H educates its professionals and adult leaders continually. So far in 2013, the Mississippi 4-H Volunteer Leaders Association met Feb. 22-23 to learn

new leadership skills and techniques. From March 26-28, the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 4-H staff had three days of in-service training, and other training opportunities are offered each year. Rae Oldham coordinates 4-H curriculum and 4-H professional development for the MSU Extension Service. She said the March training was a refresher course for those already working in 4-H, and those with new 4-H responsibilities were taught the requirements of a 4-H program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We looked at what makes up a club, program management, educational programming and volunteer management,â&#x20AC;? Oldham said. Training continues throughout the year as needed or requested for county Extension staff.

Fire ants on march in spring LOOKING FOR THE

Associated Press

BATON ROUGE, La. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; April is the time for neighborhoods to get together to fight fire ants and for farmers to attack the critters in pastures and hay fields, experts say. Experts say the most effective treatment is baits designed for fire ants. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hurt helpful insects because the ants forage for food, pick up bait and bring it to the nest to feed other ants. Eventually, the chemical finds its way to the queen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once they get the bait into the colony, it works its way into the system,â&#x20AC;? said Linda Hooper-BuĂ­, an entomologist at the LSU AgCenter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then the colony dwindles and dies.â&#x20AC;? She said that if you only treat your own yard, fire ants can return from nearby yards â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but treating large areas can help eliminate colonies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter if everyone uses the same product or not,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important that all residents treat their yards. Get the people on your block together, purchase fresh bait â&#x20AC;&#x201D; fresh baits are most attractive to ants â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and attack the problem together.â&#x20AC;? Experts at the Mississippi State University Agricultural Extension Service say it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make sense to buy more bait than you can use in one season. The poison or growth regulator is made attractive to ants by mixing it into grits coated with oil. If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kept too long the oil will go rancid, making the bait unattractive. Nor does it make sense to use more than the label recommends. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be tempted to apply excessive rates in order to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;really get â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;em,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? the MSU fact sheet states. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you are willing to spend more money for improved control, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much better to spend it on a second application later in the season!â&#x20AC;?

Coming Up In The Daily Corinthian Alcorn Central Elementary School’s “Heather’s Heros” Relay for Life team is selling T-shirts to raise money for the American Cancer Society in memory of Heather Mayo. See staff writer/photographer Steve Beavers story coming this week.

Beard is bone of contention between husband and wife DEAR ABBY: I’m married to the love of my life. Our 25th anniversary will be here soon. My issue is, my husband has a beard I cannot stand. It’s long and unkempt, and makes him look 10 years older than he is. It has become a real issue between us. He keeps telling me about women and co-workers who tell him what a “nice full beard” he has. I don’t care what these women think. I am his wife, and I think he should shave it or at least trim it for me. Abigail I am withVan Buren holding sex (which is very Dear Abby important to him) until he trims it and no longer make eye contact with him because I can’t stand looking at him. What should I do? I love him more than anyone else in the world does. Shouldn’t he respect my wishes? — IN A HAIRY SITUATION IN DULUTH DEAR HAIRY SITUATION: If you want to make your marriage last 26 years, please stop using sex as a weapon to manipulate your husband. That said, your opinion should supersede that of the women he sees at work. A beard can be

flattering if it is kept clean and trimmed. If it’s not, a man can look like Howard Hughes in his latter days, which is truly unfortunate. Because you are unable to get your message across, enlist the help of your husband’s barber. Perhaps he can get through to him. DEAR ABBY: I’m planning on moving into the same apartment complex as my ex-boyfriend. It’s all I can afford and still be close to where my family lives. He’ll be on one side, and I’ll be on the far side. I don’t think he will be driving to the side I’ll be living on. Should I text him and let him know I’m moving nearby but I’m not stalking him? Or should I keep my mouth shut and hope he never sees my car? — TOO CLOSE FOR COMFORT? DEAR TOO CLOSE?: Before you sign the lease, ask yourself how you would feel if you saw your ex-boyfriend involved with another woman. If it would be painful, then it would be healthier for you to find an apartment elsewhere. Next, ask yourself why your ex might think you were stalking him. If there is a grain of truth to it, again, you should not move there. If, however, there isn’t, it is not necessary to text him about anything. If he sees your car and has a problem with it, do not make it your problem. The romance is over and so is the drama. Live your life and let him live his.

DEAR ABBY: I recently sent my wife flowers, but she took umbrage because I didn’t take the time to stop by the florist and jot down a message myself. I phoned in the order and dictated the message instead. I am hurt and mystified over this alleged faux pas. Did I commit a social no-no? — STEVEN IN ST. LOUIS DEAR STEVEN: Of course not. For your wife to have criticized your gift was ungracious. She may have been upset about something else or having a bad day. Dictating the message on the card was perfectly appropriate. DEAR ABBY: I’ve been divorced for nearly two years, and my ex and I have moved on. My question is about our family portraits. I don’t want to throw them away because of my kids, but I don’t really want them around my house either. What should I do? — NOT LOOKING BACK IN AUSTIN DEAR NOT LOOKING BACK: Put them in an album, or display them in your children’s bedrooms if they wish. Although the marriage is over, your ex is still their father and, hopefully, he will always be a part of their lives. (Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.)

Horoscopes ARIES (March 21-April 19). You don’t mind working in obscurity. In fact, you prefer it to having to deal with the distraction of the attention popularity provides. Ignore unwanted attention, and it will eventually go away. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You never know whom you might meet at a child’s birthday party or the golf course. You will make new professional contacts when you are not at all trying to do so. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Beware of unmanageable goals. Set goals based only on things that are within your power. For instance, how much weight you lose is not really within your direct influence, but how many calories you eat absolutely is. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Life is a patient teacher. It keeps bringing the same lesson back until that lesson is learned. How do you know you’ve learned it? When it stops showing up in the classroom of your days. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You give off a superstar energy as

you walk around with your head held high. You’ll lift the excitement level of your environment. And don’t worry. Everyone will respect your celebrity status and give you privacy. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll be asked to judge. Do not get personally involved in conflicts, but hear them out objectively. Stay open to all sides of an argument before reaching a decision. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You are serious about making a change that you know will benefit you in many ways. Start with small, easy changes. Those wins will lead to bigger changes, because success begets success. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The distant point you see is not even close to your destination, but you can’t make out anything beyond it. That’s OK. Journey to that point, and when you get there, you’ll be able to see farther. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec.

21). You’ll run into someone you met long ago and treat this person with the warmth of a dear friend, mostly because that’s just how you are. As the positive feelings flow, you’re teaching others to be this way, too. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Did you ever ask yourself to take yourself to the airport, agree to the favor and then forget to say thank you? You do a lot for yourself and sometimes forget to thank or credit yourself for the contribution. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your theories about what you can and can’t do will be incorrect now. So instead of theorizing, just make a commitment. By striving to fulfill it, you’ll find out what you can do. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Put yourself in a situation that will help you learn more about how your body moves and builds itself. Dance, exercise and other physical activities will help you gain a new sense of ownership of your body.

Lady Warriors win pool title BY DONICA PHIFER

A Saturday doubleheader gave the Corinth Lady Warriors the sweep in the closing rounds of the Morris Hunter Softball Tournament in Southaven. With wins over Booneville and Cleveland High School, the team clinched the tournament title in Pool A after an undefeated run across four games played in the two days. Pitcher Colby Cox continued her undefeated record on the mound, throwing five strikeouts across the two games.

Cox gave up only six hits during the contests, while the Lady Warriors combined for 16 hits as a team. Portia Patterson put the Lady Warriors on top with a grand slam in a 10-0 victory over Cleveland, with Rebekah Williams and Katie Vandiver turning in double hits. Williams gained another hit in the Warriors 5-0 victory over Booneville, posting a triple during the fourth inning.

Rebel Road Trip The TriState Rebel Club will host

The host school and the home school traded punches. Alcorn Central finished first on the girls’ side and runnersup in the boys’ event in the Golden Bear Invitational held earlier this week at Tishomingo County High School. Biggersville, Mantachie and New Site rounded out the field in Tuesday’s meet. “We’re extremely young, but a lot of these kids were with us as eighth- and ninth-graders last year,” said coach Bobby Purvis, who has a combined two juniors and one senior among the two squads.

“This is a great bunch of kids and they are really competing hard.” The Lady Bears dominated the five-school meet, finishing 41 points ahead of secondplace Tish County. Central, which remained unbeaten at 10-0, had 10 first-place finishes in totaling 121 points. Alex Madahar led the way with the individual hat trick, claiming firsts in the high jump, long jump and high hurdles. Alissa Ann Williams won the pole vault and 400 dash, and added a third title as part of the 4x400 relay team. Kaitlynn Mynatt also had a hand in three victories, run-

ning on both the 4x200 and 4x400 teams after claiming the discus. Tish County edged out Central (7-3) in the boys’ meet. The Braves totaled 130 points, with Central 13 points back on the strength of seven first-place finishes. Sam Holley led the way with titles in the 800 and 1600 runs. Josh Harbor won the 300 hurdles and a leg on the victorious 4x400 relay team. Central participated in the Pontotoc Invitational at Tupelo High School on Saturday in a meet postponed from March 23.

Shock absorbers: Cards rally to title game Associated Press

ATLANTA — The deficit was getting bigger, the clock becoming an enemy and Louisville’s options were dwindling. “I just kept telling the guys ... ‘We’re going to make a run. It’s about defense,’” coach Rick Pitino said. “The tempo is not ours. Give them their credit, but the bench won the game for us tonight. Unbelievable display.” Impressive comeback, too. Luke Hancock came off the bench to score 20 points, walk-on Tim Henderson sparked a second-half rally with a pair of monster 3s and Louisville advanced to the

NCAA title game Saturday night, escaping with a 72-68 victory over Wichita State. Now the Cardinals (345) will try and win it all for their emotional leader on the bench, injured Kevin Ware. As the final buzzer sounded, Ware stood up, grinning as he thrust his arms above his head. Louisville will play for the national title Monday night. It is the Cardinals’ first trip to the title game since they won it all in 1986. “We just played super hard,” said Russ Smith, who led the Cardinals with 21 points. “Nobody wanted to go home.”

Cleanthony Early had 24 for the ninth-seeded Shockers (30-9), who nearly pulled off their biggest upset of all. Wichita State had knocked off No. 1 seed Gonzaga and Ohio State on its way to its first Final Four since 1965, and the Shockers had a 12-point lead on Louisville with 13:35 to play. It was the largest deficit all tournament for the Cardinals, who seemed out of sorts after an emotional week following Ware’s gruesome injury; he snapped his tibia and the bone broke through the skin during last weekend’s Midwest Regional final. But Louisville had come back to win five games after

trailing by nine points or more already this year, including rallying from a 16-point deficit in the title game at the Big East tournament. This one trumped them all. “It’s tough for Wichita State to lose this game tonight because they played great. We had to dig in,” Pitino said. “Four of our starters had their worst start of the season. We had to win the game with our second unit.” Henderson, the walk-on who was forced into increased playing time because of Ware’s injury, made backto-back 3s to spark a 21-8 Please see LOUISVILLE | 11A

Michigan edges Syracuse in second semifinal Associated Press

ATLANTA — Don’t call these guys the Fab Five. Michigan’s latest group of young stars is determined to leave its own legacy. Attacking Syracuse’s suffocating zone defense in the first half with 3-pointers, crisp passing and a fearless attitude, the Wolverines advanced to the national championship game with a 61-56

victory over the Orange in the Final Four on Saturday night. Michigan (31-7) will be going for its first national title since 1989 when it faces Louisville on Monday at the Georgia Dome. Syracuse (3010) failed to complete an allBig East final in the fabled league’s last season before breaking up. The Wolverines got sloppy in the second half and had to

hang on at the end, winning despite a tough night for Associated Press player of the year Trey Burke. He scored only seven points. That made for some nervous moments as Michigan got a little too conservative trying to run out the clock. Trailing 58-56, the Orange had a chance to force overtime. But Brandon Triche was called for a foul when Jordan

Morgan stepped in to take the charge with 19.2 seconds left. After Jon Horford made only one of two free throws, Syracuse called timeout and set up a play. Curiously, the Orange didn’t attempt a tying 3-pointer. Instead, Trevor Cooney drove the lane looking to put up an easier shot. But the ball was swatted Please see MICHIGAN | 11A

run. While Hancock and Behanan were knocking down shots, Smith and Peyton Siva were turning up the heat on the Shockers. After going more than 26 minutes without a turnover, Siva darted in to strip the ball away from Carl Hall. He fed Hancock, who drilled a 3 that gave Louisville a 56-55 lead, its first since the end of the first half. “Down the stretch, we were just loose with the ball, we just didn’t take care of it, pretty much,” Wichita State’s Malcolm Armstead said. “I can’t give you an explanation — it just happened.” Early would give the Shockers one more lead, converting a three-point play. But Siva scored and then Smith stole the ball and took it in for an easy layup that gave Louisville a 60-58 lead with 4:47 left. Louisville fans erupted, and even Ware was on his feet, throwing up his arms and clapping. The Cardinals extended the lead to 65-60 on a tip-in of a Smith miss and another 3 by Hancock. Wichita State had one last chance, pulling within 68-66 on Early’s tip in with 22 seconds left. But the Shockers were forced to foul, and Smith and Hancock made their free throws to seal the victory.

As the final buzzer sounded, Chane Behanan tossed the ball high into the air and Henderson and Hancock did a flying shoulder bump at midcourt. “It’s just a mix of emotions, of feelings. It hurts to have to lose and be the end of the season,” Early said. “But these guys fought to the end, and we had a great season and keep our heads high and know the grind doesn’t stop.” The Cardinals were the overall No. 1 seed in the tournament, and they steamrolled their way through their first four games, winning by an average of almost 22 points. They limited opponents to 59 points and 42 percent shooting while harassing them into almost 18 turnovers a game, setting an NCAA tourney record with 20 steals against North Carolina A&T. The presence of Ware was supposed to provide even more motivation for Louisville, which already had some unfinished business after losing to Kentucky in last year’s Final Four. He urged his teammates to “just go win the game” before being wheeled off the court on a stretcher last weekend. Three days later, he joined the Cardinals as they made the trip to the Final Four in Atlanta, Ware’s hometown. The Cardinals have modified their warm-up T-shirts

in Ware’s honor — they now read “Ri5e to the Occasion,” with Ware’s No. 5 on the back. He had a seat at the end of the bench, his right leg propped up on towels, and every one of the starters went to shake his hand after being introduced. But whether it was the emotional roller-coaster of the last week, the expectations or just Wichita State, the Cardinals seemed out of sorts much of the night. “There’s a reason our starters played poorly, because Wichita State is that good,” Pitino said. Wichita State may not have the names or pedigree of a Louisville, Syracuse or Michigan. But what the Shockers lacked in star power they more than made up for in hustle and heart. This, after all, was a team with one player (Carl Hall) who salvaged his career after working in a light bulb factory and two more (Armstead and Ron Baker) who paid their own ways in their first years. The Shockers barely seemed to notice that vaunted Louisville press until the final minutes of the game. They didn’t rush shots, working it around until they got a look they liked — Louisville was called for more than one foul late in the shot clock, including one on Smith with only a second left — and they were relentless on the backboards.

And that “play angry” defense? Now the Cardinals have an idea of how their opponents have felt. Wichita State bottled Louisville up inside, never letting Gorgui Dieng be a factor, and the Cardinals were continually forced to put up awkward and bad shots from outside. Tekele Cotton sparked an 11-2 run with a jumper, and his layup to finish it off gave Wichita State a 43-32 lead with 14:19 to play. Smith interrupted the spurt with a 3, only to have Hancock foul Early at the other end. Early made the first free throw and missed the second, but Cotton scooped up the rebound and dished it out to Early, who drilled a 3 to put Wichita State up 47-35. “We were kind of waiting to make our run,” Hancock said. “Obviously you’re a little concerned when you’re down by 12 in the second half. We just had to turn up our intensity, maybe gamble a little more.” The Shockers have had trouble hanging onto leads, and this game was no different. Once Henderson buried those back-to-back 3s the Cardinals were off and running, all the way to the last game of the season. “Coach Pitino kept telling us to go out there and have fun and keep playing and we were going to win. Stop hanging our heads,” Siva said. “That’s what we did.”

bench from freshmen Caris LeVert and Spike Albrecht. LeVert scored eight points and Albrecht chipped in with six — all of them crucial after the Wolverines went cold in the second half and struggled to put away the Orange. Tim Hardaway Jr. led the Wolverines with 13 points. Of course, there’s nothing unusual about Michigan getting big performances from

first-year players. This team starts three freshmen — Glenn Robinson III, Mitch McGary and Nik Stauskas — which, of course, rekindled memories of the great Fab Five teams of the early 1990s. These kids want nothing to do with the comparisons, saying they haven’t done nearly enough to be mentioned in the same breath with a team that changed the face of college bas-

ketball. Well, if the Wolverines can win their next game, they’ll accomplish something that eluded the Fab Five: a national title. Syracuse was looking to give 68-year-old Jim Boeheim another title, a decade after the Orange won it all in their last trip to the Final Four.

He also competed in the first annual cookoff in Corinth. “Steve (Knight) does a good job and that’s why you get good cooks,” said the 2002 and 2006 world champ of the local event organizer. The 76-year-old from St. Louis, Mo., who entered the red and chili event in Corinth, had some advice for those looking to get into the competition. “Keep it simple,” said

PETS the leader of his team Chili By Jerry. “The key is cooking chili until it’s done, then you taste it and make adjustments.” Simmons said the green chili or stew, as he referred to, is the best chili. “It’s better and has more variety,” he said. Hall, chili verde world champ from 2009-12, won the green chili division in the first year of the local event. “Corinth is a great place to come and enjoy the people here,” he said. “This cook-off is an equivalent to one that is 20-years-old. It is starting to bring in a lot of people … Steve has done a great job.” Jeff Netser of Seymour, Ind. was the fourth past

champion involved on Saturday. “This is a nice place to come and my wife gets to spend some money at the Green Market,” said the 2005 chili verde world champ. “They’re are some good cooks here today.” Proceeds from the annual cook-off are slated to go to the Corinth-Alcorn Animal Shelter. In the ICS-sponsored competition, the winner of each category qualified for the World Championship Cook-Off. Categories include Red, Chili Verde and Salsa. Seven local teams competed.

chance to ride.” Even though no ponies were available this year, there were plenty of dogs the students tried riding while they waited to be presented their blue ribbons. “Each child was presented a ribbon that pertained to something special about their pet,” said Huskey. Parents were asked to bring supplies such as food, towels and newspapers in support of the Corinth-Alcorn Animal Shelter. “They were encouraged to bring a live animal or they could also bring a stuffed animal or a picture of one,” said Huskey. Sixty-four children took part in the annual event after a lesson about animals. “We talked about how God gave us all these animals and how we need to care for them,” said the director.

The important Engineer Regiment of the West BY TOM PARSON NPS Ranger

When I was in the Navy my first ship was home ported out of Port Hueneme, Ca. The U.S.N. owned a tiny corner of an otherwise tiny harbor, but our ship was there more as an afterthought. The real purpose of the sprawling base alongside the harbor was the home of the U.S. Navy Construction Battalion, the Seabees. The Seabees, with their motto “Can Do!” are the Navy’s version of combat engineers. Combat Engineers have a long and proud tradition that goes back a couple of dozen centuries. Whenever an army needed to build a fort or cross a river, they called on the engineers. The engineers played a vital role in the Civil War and you can see plenty of examples of their work around Corinth. The miles of earthworks in every direction around town are evidence of their skill with the pick and shovel. Engineers, however, were called on for much more than just digging and they proved it here in North Mississippi. In July 1861, Josiah W. Bissell received permission form the governor of Missouri to recruit a full regiment of men, “all of them either mechanics, artisans, or persons accustomed to work as laborers under mechanics.” It was the beginning of the Engineer Regiment of the West. Men poured in from Missouri, Illinois and Iowa and they represented a host of trades. There were iron molders, carpenters, railroad engineers, masons, riggers and more. Because they were specialists, they were given extra pay. A regular army private brought in a whopping $13 a month. A mechanic was given $24 and a laborer $20 a month. Still, all of the new recruits were considered soldiers and all were trained to use their muskets. One of their first assignments was to create a 12-mile canal which bypassed the Confederate guns at New Madrid, Missouri. The route was through a thickly wooded swamp and the engineers designed and built an enormous pivoting saw mounted on a barge. It cut trees off five feet below the surface of the water and opened a route for the shallow draft gunboats. Gen. Pope, commander of the expedition, was delighted. “Of Colonel Bissell and his Engineer Regiment, I can hardly say too much. Untiring and determined, no labor discouraged them, and no labor was too much for their energy. They have commenced and completed a project which will be memorable in the history of war.” In April of ’62 the Engineers came with Pope’s Army of the Mississippi to join in the Siege of Corinth. Of course, they were involved in the digging of the entrenchments, but their real contribution was in the road and bridge department. Heavy rains had washed out the small bridges and turned the roads into rivers of mud. Bissell’s men created 44 miles of corduroy road by cutting down

The bridges over the swollen streams were not just thrown together affairs of logs and planks, but sturdy spans wide enough to allow two heavily laden supply wagons to pass side by side as well as supporting the massive weight of the siege artillery trains. Another project of the engineers was the creation of a large observation tower in a tall oak tree near Farmington. The branches were removed from the tree so they would not obstruct the view, and a bulky platform was mounted at the top. Confederate observers mistook the structure for an observation balloon and a number of concerned messages passed back and forth between the top brass about how to deal with this new threat. On the 28th of May, the Engineers were busy building an artillery position on the east side of Bridge Creek when they were surprised by a col-

umn of screaming Confederate infantry. Union field artillery began to fire in response and the mechanics dropped to the ground caught between the two opposing forces. When the firing stopped, they went right back to work. If you wonder where this little fight took place take a visit out to the Corinth-Alcorn Animal Shelter on Proper Street. The stay in Corinth was a short one and the regiment was soon sent north up the tracks of the Mobile & Ohio Railroad to Jackson, all that is but Company E who stayed behind in Cross City. Lieutenant Milton Edinger kept the company busy on a number of projects, including several large warehouses, an addition to the railroad depot, a locomotive turntable, and a car shop to repair the flat cars and box cars. Apparently morale was a little low during the summer months until Lt. Edinger, “arrested all the lewd women in the town and sent them to Cairo, when tranquility was restored.” No word

on the state of tranquility in Cairo when the “soiled doves” arrived in that community. On one occasion a group of men went out of camp to shoot some turkeys for supper. One of the lieutenants was a wee bit near-sighted and took aim at what he thought was a turkey sitting on the top of a hill. It’s amazing how much a mule’s head looks like a turkey. “The whole party were convulsed with the laughter that the scene forced upon them.” They didn’t say how the officer cooked his dinner. The 3rd of October was the start of the Battle of Corinth and word soon reached General Grant at his headquarters in Jackson, Tenn. The bulk of the regiment was sent by rail under the command of Brig. Gen. James McPherson who collected a number of Union garrison troops along the way. By morning of the 4th they were within 10 miles of Corinth, but Confederate cavalry had torn up the tracks forcing them to march the last leg on foot.

The Engineers arrived too late to participate in the battle, but as McPherson’s small division was the freshest, they led the Union pursuit of the retreating Confederates the next morning. The Engineers were not called on to fight, but they were invaluable in repairing bridges over the Tuscumbia and Hatchie Rivers. For the next two and a half years the Engineers were kept busy building bridges, fixing roads and a hundred other chores in which they were so gifted. They were on hand during the siege of Vicksburg and then, a year after they had left, they returned to Corinth to repair the Memphis & Charleston Railroad in the direction of Chattanooga. They were in camp at Glendale (modern Glen) and working from this camp when they built a number of bridges near Burnsville and Iuka. One of their biggest projects of the war was a 300-foot railroad bridge over the waters of Bear Creek just across the Alabama line. By early 1864 the sadly

depleted regiment was consolidated with the 25th Missouri Infantry to form the 1st Missouri Engineers. The new regiment marched to the sea with Sherman, bridging every stream and river in their path. At war’s end one of the men wrote a history of the regiment and in its pages Col. Bissell took pains to ensure the individual soldiers were not lost in the tale. “In such an operation the public only want to know what was done and how; they take no interest that Sergeant Prescott never seemed to get tired, or that Devillo Grow was always the first to jump in the water if the saw was ‘pinched;’ the man at the head gets all the credit, while these details, which are often the gist of the whole thing, pass almost or quite unnoticed.” Well said Colonel Bissell, well said.

Chaplain receives Medal of Honor 62 years after his death BY SHARON COHEN AP National Writer

In the cold, barren hills of Korea more than 60 years ago, two teary-eyed soldiers stood in a prisoner of war camp where

their chaplain lay dying. The Rev. Emil Kapaun was weak, his body wracked by pneumonia and dysentery. After six brutal months in the hellish camp, the once sturdy

Kansas farmer’s son could take no more. Thousands of soldiers had already died, some starving, others freezing to death. Now the end was near for the chaplain.

Lt. Mike Dowe said goodbye to the man who’d given him hope during those terrible days. The young West Point grad cried, even as the chaplain, he says, tried to com-

fort him with his parting words: “Hey, Mike, don’t worry about me. I’m going to where I always wanted to go and I’ll say a prayer for all of you.” Lt. Robert Wood wept,

too, watching the Roman Catholic chaplain bless and forgive his captors. He helped carry Kapaun out of the mud hut and up Please see MEDAL | 2B

Bedding bream, gobbling toms ... it’s all good What a difference a year makes in the turkey woods and on the water. An early spring last year had toms gobbling their heads off at the onset of the hunting season, hens started nesting early and fish species began their spawning cycles much sooner than usual. Never in my life would I have thought I’d ever see bream trying to bed in late March. It’s just not supposed to happen. But it appears everything has returned to normal. That is, if there is such a thing as normal these days considering the constant swings in the weather we always seem to have. Bream fishermen who got an early jump on the

fishing season last year, however, won’t have much longer to wait David in getting Green in on some hot action. Outdoors As normal, look for bream to begin bedding toward the end of April, about five to seven days prior to the next full moon. It’s like sitting in a crowded doctor’s office. No one likes to wait. But, in this instance, the wait will be worth it. The first of many bream spawns to come is when the biggest fish in the pond are caught. A better than average

turkey population gave many hunters an illusion of high expectations for the season. Several have done well and met those expectations, but many others have had trouble finding a tom sexually frustrated enough to open his beak. Gobbling activity got off to a real slow start in many areas. No need to fret, though. If it hasn’t already, that’s all about to change. Traditionally, peak gobbling activity occurs in this area during the first week or so of April. But finding a firedup tom first thing in the morning is not always what it’s cracked up to be, especially if he’s got hens nearby. Hens try to hook-up with a mate right

after fly-down, and if they get to him before you do, odds are not in your favor. Most of the time they’ll pull him away, making the challenge of luring the tom into gun range next to impossible. All is not lost, however. Persistence can pay off in one of two ways. If you’re familiar with the terrain and have an idea where the turkeys might be heading, a wide circle can be made to get out in front and cut them off at the pass. Or, if that’s not feasible, hang tight and hunt later into the morning. Once the hens go to nest, ole tom is liable to fire-back-up as he meanders about looking for another mate. With most hens gone

to nest, a lonely tom is known to be susceptible to be coaxed in with some seductive late morning calling. Afternoon hunts become more productive as well. Nothing can be done about the extremes with the weather. It is what it is, and it seems to have become the norm. Making adjustments to counteract what Mother Nature has thrown is about all a person can do. An adjustment could be a rational rethinking of a game plan according to the conditions, or it could be something as simple as choosing the sport that has the best chance of providing the most action at the moment with the least amount of effort.

As the weather begins to stabilize and the warmth of spring takes hold, sportsmen have plenty of choices to choose from. Whether it’s the fast-paced action of fishing for bedding bream, dunking jigs and minnows for crappie, throwing plugs at bass, or chasing after strutting toms in the woods ... hey, it’s all good!

There’s nothing better than spring in Mississippi’s outdoors BY MIKE GILES The Meridian Star

Shad skittered near the shoreline of a local lake just a split second before a bass slammed into the school sending a spray of tiny baitfish up onto the banks on a recent spring morning. A lone angler promptly pitched a Junebug lizard near the commotion and a lunker bass sucked it in. Almost simultaneously I slammed the hook deep into the lunker bass’ jaw and it exploded through the surface and fought wildly all the way to the boat! I was living the dream

and enjoying stress relief smack dab in the middle of some of the finest hunting and fishing in the world. Spring has come to Mississippi again and the dogwoods are blooming, the gobblers are booming and fish are biting. And the choices are so many we fret over what to do? Come with me and explore our outdoor opportunities right in our own backyard. Grab your pole, don your sneakers, or boots and come along for a spring outing. Follow me to the flooded minnow ponds of Okatibbee Lake

and a springtime crappie outing on an action packed fishing trip. Crappie head to the shallow waters of Okatibbee each spring and provide glorious fish catching opportunities second to none. Follow me still to the hills west of Meridian as love sick gobblers scream thunderous early morning wake up calls, a challenge to all comers and hunters, and a come hither pleading to any hen within hearing distance. Come with me as a young hunter makes his first early spring gobbler hunt and harvests a tro-

phy tom. Come with me to the Chunky River and catch a limit of the explosive spotted bass. Come to Kemper Lake and catch a lunker bass amidst the lilies while eagles soar overhead. Come to the fertile streams of Kemper County where bucks roam the banks, ducks fill the sloughs and even walleye swim the streams! Come and enjoy. Whippoorwills whistle tunes filling the early morning hours and nights with melodious refrains free to all who will listen. Feel the thrill again and

again and join Ken Murphy on a lunker hunt as he catches and releases bass after bass at Okatibbee Lake! Come and canoe Okatibbee Creek right near Meridian and observe the wondrous assortment of wildlife living right here among us. See the bucks, ducks, coyotes, hawks, and even wild hogs while catching red bellies, spotted bass or catfish. Come and explore beautiful Bonita Lakes. Catch a monster bass, or bike, hike, or jog the hills and hollows. Come this spring and walk the trails,

canoe the waters and enjoy the beautiful explosions of blooms painting the spring foliage with a magnificent rebirth of nature.

True hunting story: Father, son bag turkeys on opening day of season BY JOE MACALUSO The (La.) Advocate

BATON ROUGE, La. — Score one for the old guys. And two for a family, because how rare is it for a father and son to score on the opening day of any hunting season, much less the opening day of the turkey season? It sounds like it would be easy to get gobblers after 11 months of not having hunters chase after

them, but taking a mature bird with the wiles of a wild turkey isn’t common. And for the record, Jeff Farrar, the dad, went oneup on his son, Jameson, to chalk-up that rare double. The story started with the usual conversation: The son asked his dad if he was hunting on opening day, and the dad responding that he was, but he wasn’t waking up at the

crack of dawn like he’d done for so many turkeyseason openers in the past. Jeff Farrar said he told his son he planned something different, “I would go midmorning, take my time, and hope that I would have better luck than before. “My midmorning strategy may have also had something to do with the fact that I’m 52 years old, and it’s not as easy for me

to get up that early like it is for my 28-year-old son,” Jeff said. “Of course, he told me I was wasting my time and that he was going before daylight, hoping to have a better advantage.” Both were true to their words: Jameson was out long before the sun, and Jeff admitted his first move, after having breakfast at Johnny B’s in Clinton, was a little after 9 a.m.

“I wasn’t there 30 minutes when I bagged a fine gobbler,” Jeff said. “He came in full strut; it was the perfect hunt. I could not wait to catch up with my son and brag about my success. “On my way home, I passed Jameson on Blairstown Road. We pulled off of the side of the road, and before I could gloat about what a great hunt I had, he pulled a 20-pound turkey out of the back of his truck. With a big smile on his face he said, ‘That’s how you do it dad.’ “We shared our stories and decided that, when all was said and done, both strategies were very successful,” Jeff said. But as family rivalries go, somebody had to have the last word.

“My midmorning strategy may have also had something to do with the fact that I’m 52 years old, and it’s not as easy for me to get up that early like it is for my 28-year-old son.” Jeff Farrar Hunter Jeff Farrar was more than willing to step to the plate: “By the way, my turkey had a 12-inch beard and my son’s an 11-inch (beard),” he said. “The old man can still put it on him!”

April 2013 has been designated as National Safe Digging Month and Corinth Gas & Water Department is dedicated to increasing the awareness of safe digging practices in our city and county. All persons preparing to dig must call Mississippi 811 two days prior to the beginning of any work. Underground facilities will be marked using the color code system and then work may proceed. Every digging job requires a call whether you are planning to do it yourself or hiring a professional. The depth of utility lines varies and there may be multiple utility lines in a common area. Digging without calling can disrupt service to an entire neighborhood, harm you and those around you and potentially result in fines and repair costs. Calling 811 before every digging job gets your underground utility lines marked for free and helps prevent undesired consequences.

a hill on a stretcher after Chinese soldiers ordered he be moved to a hospital, a wretched, maggot-filled place the POWs dubbed “the death house.” There was little or no medical care there. Kapaun died on May 23, 1951. These two soldiers — and many more — never forgot their chaplain. Not his courage in swatting away an enemy soldier pointing a gun at a GI’s head. Not his talent for stealing food, then sneaking it to emaciated troops. Not the inspiring way he rallied his “boys,” as he called them, urging them to keep their spirits up. The plain-spoken, pipesmoking, bike-riding chaplain was credited with saving hundreds of soldiers during the Korean War. Kapaun (pronounced Kah-PAHWN) received the Distinguished Service Cross and many other medals. His exploits were chronicled in books, magazines and a TV show. A high school was named for him. His

statue stands outside his former parish in tiny Pilsen, Kan. But one award, the Medal of Honor, always remained elusive. Dowe and other POWs had lobbied on and off for years, writing letters, doing interviews, enlisting support on Capitol Hill. Dowe’s recommendation was turned down in the 1950s.The campaign stalled, then picked up steam decades later. Kapaun’s “boys” grew old, their determination did not. Now it has finally paid off. On April 11, those two young lieutenants, Dowe and Wood, now 85 and 86, will join their comrades, Kapaun’s family and others at the White House where President Barack Obama will award the legendary chaplain the Medal of Honor posthumously. “It is about time,” Dowe says. Even now, Father Kapaun’s story may still have one final chapter: sainthood.

Variety is tops in reception treats BY SUSAN COLLINS-SMITH MSU Ag Communications

Bethany Nicole Sherard, Tory Nicholas Riley

Sunday, April 7, 2013

JACKSON — Wedding cakes have long been the centerpiece of the reception, but large multi-layered cakes are being replaced by new trends. Couples are choosing smaller cakes or no cakes at all and instead offering several different desserts or individual dessert servings. “Southern tradition in wedding ceremonies calls for having a large wedding cake, often referred to as the bride’s cake, and a groom’s cake,” said Tashmia Prowell-Turner, child and family development area agent in Madison County with the Mississippi State University Extension Service. “But many couples are opting to offer multiple selections of food and desserts at their receptions.” A smaller wedding cake can help trim the budget and make room for more dessert options. Individual desserts, such as cupcakes and cake shooters, are popular additions or alternatives. Cake shooters are packaged like push-up ice

cream treats and contain cake and icing in various flavors. Couples can personalize each cake shooter with their monogram or other decoration. “Most pastry chefs charge by the size of the cake and complication of design, so having a smaller cake can be less expensive, depending on how many and what types of other desserts are offered,” Prowell-Turner said. Many couples offer other desserts to make the celebration more personal. Individual desserts, such as pies, cheesecakes or cookies, give the couple more opportunity to incorporate their personal tastes or unique stories into the reception. “I customize each menu for each client, and a lot of my clients are asking for distinctive, single-serving desserts, like cake shooters,” said Kelly Pittman, owner of Elements Catering and Floral Design in Columbia. “It gives the couple a chance to offer more than one or two different flavor combinations of cake and icing. It can also be a

fun way to reflect the couple’s personality or a special aspect of the couple’s relationship.” If the reception includes a formal dinner, small, simply decorated cakes can serve as centerpieces at each table before guests eat them for dessert. For less formal receptions, a small, elaborate wedding cake is perfect for the purpose of pictures, but guests can eat slices of frosted sheet cakes. Some couples are accommodating their guests’ preferences by offering a dessert bar. Dessert bars may offer several different kinds of desserts or may offer one type of dessert that can be customized to the guests’ liking, such as ice cream sundaes. Variety can meet the needs of guests who are allergic to gluten, dairy or nuts. “Dessert bars are a good way to accommodate all guests,” ProwellTurner said. “Some guests may not enjoy the bride or groom’s favorite flavor of cake, so having more dessert options to choose from can ensure everyone will enjoy the reception,” Prowell-Turner said.

Budget weddings for a smart financial start BY BONNIE COBLENTZ MSU Ag Communications

MISSISSIPPI STATE — While every bride wants a special wedding, having an event that breaks the bank is the wrong way to start married life. According to www., the average cost of a wedding in Mississippi is under $24,000. In Washington County, weddings costs range from $16,724 to $27,874; in Madison County, couples typically spend between $19,367 and $32,279; and in Jackson County, that cost is between $17,025 and $28,675. But financial specialists with the Mississippi State University Extension Service said weddings do not have to be expensive to be meaningful. Susan Cosgrove, an Extension family resource management area agent in Newton County, said taking on debt for a wedding is a bad idea. “If you’re going to go into debt for something, make sure you’re paying for something that you still have,” Cosgrove said. “The ceremony will be over quickly, the cake will be eaten, and the flowers wilted.” Bobbie Shaffett, Extension family resource management specialist, said an affordable wedding is best. “It is wise to start a marriage with good decision making and live within your budget,” Shaffett said. “This can be the basis for the rest of your marriage.” Wedding decisions should be made with that long-term outlook. “If you make what you want more important than what you can afford, that tends to carry over to all the decisions that couple makes,” Shaffett said.

Start by deciding how much can be spent on a wedding, and work within that figure. Identify the most expensive items in a wedding, and then decide how to handle each of them. Big-ticket items in the budget include location, food, flowers and dresses. “You may need to prioritize and decide which of these items are most important,” Shaffett said. “Fit them in the budget first, finding ways to reduce their costs when possible, and then you will know how much money you have left to spend on other, less important things associated with the wedding.” Teresa Lyle, an Extension family resource management area working in Leake County, said elegant weddings are possible without spending a lot of money. “Keep them simple and be creative without spending a lot of money,” Lyle said. Scaling back the guest list is an easy way to cut costs because less food is required at the reception afterwards. Very light snacks may be sufficient for an afternoon reception, while weddings held near meals require a significantly larger budget for food. When a wedding is planned long in advance, some items can be bought in advance, spreading out the cost. Experts agreed that the details and trappings of a wedding are not nearly as important as the commitment being made. “When you look at the wedding with a longrange perspective, you realize the ring, the flowers or the dress are really inconsequential,” Shaffett said. “It’s the commitment that counts.”

Holly Springs hosting 75th annual Pilgrimage Tour Special to the Daily Corinthian

HOLLY SPRINGS, — The 75th Pilgrimage will take place in historic Holly Springs, April 1214. Set in the Antebellum Capitol of the MidSouth, the tour features selected antebellum homes hosted by costumed guides, local storytellers, organ recitals in the town’s historic churches, horse-drawn carriage rides, Civil War re-enactors, luncheons, a character-guided cemetery tour, arts and crafts and a Southern supper in the antebellum Montrose mansion. Guests are invited to enjoy an authentic, preCivil War experience. Homes on tour this year include the historic Magnolias, circa 1852. Built by William F. Mason as a wedding present for his daughter, Elizabeth, this Gothic style home features period furnishings, crystal chandeliers and a circular staircase. The Tudor arched entrance has a door bearing the marks of a bayonet that was thrust through it when the home was raid-

ed during the Civil War. This beautiful home was chosen as the primary filming location for the 1999 film “Cookie’s Fortune.” Also included on the tour are Finley Place (1856), Walthall Place (1848), and Montrose (1858), headquarters of the Holly Springs Garden Club, sponsors of the pilgrimage, which houses an arboretum. For the first year ever, Hedge Farm (1842) is featured on the tour. Hedge Farm, one of the best examples of a planter’s cottage in the state, sits on 175 acres of original farmland that was once part of a 2,000-acre plantation. According to the Holly Springs Garden Club president, Sarah Taylor, “This year is the 75th anniversary of one of the finest events Mississippi has to offer. It is just as vital and special to our community now as it was 75 years ago. This year, we hope to entertain former pilgrimage royalty, guests who return year after year, and hopefully, many new guests who have nev-

er attended this extraordinary event before.” Attractions this year include the Church of the Yellow Fever Martyrs (1841), First Presbyterian Church (1860), Christ Episcopal Church (1858), and First United Methodist Church (1849), with organ recitals to be held throughout the weekend, as well as the Marshall County Historical Museum, the Ida B. Wells-Barnett Museum, and the Strawberry Plains Audubon Center.

Book Review

Excellent read: ‘The Supremes at Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat’ BY TERRI SCHLICHENMEYER Columnist

“The Supremes at Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat” by Edward Kelsey Moore c.2013, Alfred A. Knopf $24.95 / $28.95 Canada 313 pages All for one, and one for all. That could’ve been the motto for you and your two best friends. Growing up, you were the Three Musketeers, sharing gossip, secrets, crushes, families, and truths. Everybody knew that you three were close as paint on a wall and where there was one, the other two weren’t far away. You were lucky to have those friends when you were young and if you’re lucky now, you’ve still got them around. As you’ll see in the new novel “The Supremes at Earl’s AllYou-Can-Eat” by Edward Kelsey Moore, those longtime friends may be life’s

best souvenir. If it was Sunday after church, then everybody in Leaning Tree knew where they’d find Odette, Clarice, and Barbara Jean: at Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat. They’d been gathering there for forty-odd years but food wasn’t all they got. The diner’s owner, Big Earl, had been like a father to just about everybody in town. He practically raised Odette’s husband, James, and he’d taken in Barbara Jean when her mother died. Big Earl was generous with advice and compliments and everybody loved him. But now he was dead. Odette learned it from her mother, who came visiting in the middle of the night, along with a welldressed white woman who seemed a little tipsy. Odette wasn’t surprised to see her Mama at that time of day. Ever since they’d buried Mama six years before, she’d been visiting Odette real often.


But Odette didn’t talk about that. No sense in worrying James, the love of her life for more than thirty years. No reason to make Clarice fret, since she had enough problems with a philandering husband. And since Barbara Jean carried loss heavy in her chest, there was no sense in stirring up bad memories. Yes, Big Earl was dead but life went on in Leaning Tree, Indiana. Life went on, Clarice kept turning a blind eye on her husband’s affairs; Little Earl kept the All-YouCan-Eat running; Barbara Jean drank herself stupid every day, like she had for years; and Odette passed the time with those who’d passed on. Until one day, Mama had something to say that Odette didn’t want to hear… Have you ever read a book that made you feel so at home that you never wanted it to end?

Yep, that’s what reading “The Supremes at Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat” is like: comfortable from the first page, delightful to the last. Author Edward Kelsey Moore made me laugh out loud in parts of this book with characters that are snide and sarcastic, strong yet delicate. Then he turned around and made me feel bad for what was coming. I loved his turns of phrase and his sense of humor, and I loved the fact that he made me forget that his characters weren’t fleshand-blood. Overall, I just plain loved this book. If you’ve ever had a friend (or two) that you knew better than you know yourself, then you need to share this book. “The Supremes at Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat” is great for one, but better for all.

‘Duck Dynasty’ stars greet fans BY STACEY PLAISANCE Associated Press

METAIRIE, La. — Phil Robertson, one of the shaggy-bearded stars of the hit reality TV series “Duck Dynasty,” used to get mistaken for a homeless man. He said he was even singled out once at an airport for a security search and wands went “places my woman hasn’t been in years.” These days, though, the patriarch of a family of duck hunters-turnedmillionaires is more likely to get stopped by strangers who want autographs or pictures. “When you look like this, there’s no hat and glasses that can cover it up,” Phil’s son Willie said, drawing laughs from his family of co-stars. “I’m certainly more recognizable. I can tell you that.” Last Saturday, more than 500 fans showed up at an autograph session with the family. The Robertsons cracked jokes about their celebrity status and signed books, T-shirts, shoes and even some hunting rifles for fans in their home state of Louisiana. The show, which airs on A&E, follows the family and its business, Duck Commander, which specializes in handmade duck calls and other bird hunting gear. But the Robertsons are easily distracted from their work and amuse the audience with their humorous adventures. The show premiered in 2012 and is in its third season, drawing about 8 million viewers a week.

The Robertsons would not talk about the status of a fourth season or reports they were holding out for more money. But if their popularity is any indication, they’ll be back. The Robertsons have fan merchandise such as bobble-head dolls, duckthemed license plates and Chia Pet planters in the shape of their faces with greenery that grows like their beards. At the autograph session, Phil, with his sons Willie and Jase, and his brother Silas “Uncle Si” Robertson, gathered outside a sporting goods store in the New Orleans suburb of Metairie. Kids in the crowd blew into duck calls while a group of women chanted “Si, Si, Si, Si!” “We’re getting more and more used to it as we go around, seeing people crowded up and wanting a picture or an autograph, and we think it’s neat,” said Willie Robertson. “We were hoping the show would have that kind of impact, and it has.” Hundreds of fans arrived too late and were kept behind red velvet ropes several yards away from the stars. Some came from as far away as Cow Bay in Nova Scotia, Canada. “Nova Scotians, they’re rednecks also,” said Dwayne Doucette, a Canadian who was with the group holding signs that read: “We love Duck Dynasty” and “Canada loves Duck Dynasty and Duck Commander.” Jase Robertson, whose

real name is Jason, said the duck calls are still handmade, one-by-one. To meet demand, the business has gone from a dozen employees before the show aired to about 75 in the past year. They make 14,000 duck calls a week, he said. Fans buy the duck calls even though many have no intention of hunting, he said. Casey Cambre and his 5-year-old daughter, Ava, waited more than eight hours to be the first in line to meet the family. “I’ve never done anything like this, ever, not even for a concert,” said Cambre. “A lot of people like the show because it’s funny. I like it because it’s a good, clean, wholesome family show.” Each of the show’s episodes ends with the family gathered around the dinner table in prayer. “We’re trying to infuse a little good into the American culture,” Phil Robertson said. “Love God, love your neighbor, hunt ducks. Raise your kids, make them behave, love them. I don’t see the down side to that.” Si Robertson, who is always with a tall cup of tea in hand, said he drinks about two gallons of unsweetened tea a day. As he sipped some during an interview, he said it was a misconception that he drinks sweet tea. That would rot his teeth, and besides, he said, he’s sweet enough as it is. “I’m so sweet I can’t get out in the rain. I’ll melt,” he said.

Ebert not just a critic, but part of Hollywood BY DAVID GERMAIN AP Movie Writer

LOS ANGELES — Roger Ebert could be tough on filmmakers, but unlike many critics, he earned their respect. So much so that they claimed him as one of their own when the Directors Guild of America made Ebert an honorary lifetime member at the group’s awards ceremony four years ago. What better testimony for a life’s work in a profession that typically draws sneers from filmmakers and fans alike? But then Ebert, who died Thursday at age 70, was not just any critic. He was THE critic. At the Chicago SunTimes since 1967 and through decades as a pioneering film reviewer on television, Ebert championed tiny gems that he scouted out at film

festivals and took Hollywood’s biggest names to task when they missed the mark. Ebert drew his own criticism that the thumbs-up, thumbs-down trademark of his TV shows over-simplified the way we look at films. Yet with his chubby frame and thick-rimmed glasses, he popularized the notion of the dweebish critic as arbiter of cultural taste, inspiring a generation of TV and online reviewers much as Woodward and Bernstein inspired a generation of investigative journalists. Just as inspirational was how Ebert continued the work he loved through repeated ailments. He lost parts of his jaw and the ability to speak after cancer surgeries in 2006, yet he came back to writing fulltime and eventually returned to television. And that famous thumb

barely scratched the surface of Ebert’s work as a critic, student and just plain lover of film. “Roger loved movies. They were his life. His reviews went far deeper than simply thumbs up or thumbs down,” said Steven Spielberg, one of the filmmakers who honored Ebert at the Directors Guild ceremony. “He wrote with passion through a real knowledge of film and film history, and in doing so, helped many movies find their audiences.” Ebert died at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, two days after announcing that he was undergoing treatment for a recurrence of cancer. Ebert’s criticism earned him a Pulitzer in 1975, and he wrote more than 20 books that included two volumes of essays on classic movies.
