Police warn of tornado relief scam BY JEBB JOHNSTON

People in Corinth and other areas are reporting possible tornado relief scams following the devastation in Oklahoma. The Corinth Police Depart-

ment received complaints during the last few days about a woman who had been to several businesses and said she was soliciting money for the Red Cross office in Tupelo. She was at Corinth Commons when

Corinth police questioned her. “I’m not going to say her intent was not to give the money to the Red Cross, but we could not verify that she was affiliated with the Red Cross in Tupelo,” said Police Chief David

Lancaster. “We confiscated the bucket she was carrying and are going to make sure the money gets to the Red Cross in Tupelo.” The amount was estimated at less than $100.

“From what they tell us, they don’t do solicitations like that, but if they did, the person would have an I.D. badge,” the chief said. Please see SCAM | 3A

Arena will turn to supervisors for exhaust system BY STEVE BEAVERS

Corinth commencement More than 100 graduates received their diplomas during the commencement exercises of Corinth High School on Friday night. Corinth seniors Jaynesia Johnson (from left), Antwone Patterson and Alexis Jacobs enjoy a moment together prior to graduation at the Crossroads Arena. More photos from the CHS Class of 2013 graduation ceremony will be presented Tuesday.

The Crossroads Arena will now turn to the Alcorn County Board of Supervisors in attempt to have an exhaust system added to the facility. Members of the board made the decision after getting three costly options from city/county engineer Cook Coggin about adding the system along with replacing existing air conditioning units. “These numbers are at best staggering,” said Cook Coggin's Johnny Crotts. “We found it best to start high and work into reality.” Doug Thornton, of Architectural & Energy Resources for Construction in Hernando, presented the options the

board on Thursday during a special called meeting. The least expensive choice was an estimate of $300,000 which would leave all the existing air conditioning options as is now while adding an exhaust system. “This option is the easier one to accomplish,” said Thornton. “We are not trying to scare you,” added Crotts. “We are just letting you know what you are going to face sooner or later.” According to Thornton, the changes would be 10-15 percent more energy efficient. It would also call for the moving of the units from the roof to

The Mod Squad hopes the public is in a buying mood. Those associated with the Alcorn County 4-H Modeling Squad – Mod Squad – are having a community yard sale on Saturday, June 8 at the Alcorn County Extension Center. Vendors are also welcome to set up inside or outside for the event that goes until. Outside booths are available for $10 while those wishing to have a booth located inside the building can do so for $15. “This is the first time we are trying something like this as a fundraiser,” said 4-H volunteer Judy Martin. “Every October we take the modeling squad to Jackson for a competition … whatever we make will be used to cover that expense.” The yard sale will be held rain

Today in History

Law enforcement stressing safety BY BOBBY J. SMITH

Today is Sunday, May 26, the 146th day of 2013. There are 219 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On May 26, 1913, Actors’ Equity Association was organized by a group of actors at the Pabst Grand Circle Hotel in New York; the union’s first president was Francis Wilson.

Memorial Day motorists are urged to be safe on the roads and exercise good judgement during one of the busiest weekends of the year. Corinth Police will be out in force this weekend, said Deputy Chief Scotty Harville. “It’s common sense stuff,” said Harville. “Don’t drink and drive. Our guys will be out and looking, and if they’re

caught they will be arrested.” Harville also urged drivers to slow down and be careful. “There’s going to be a lot of traffic out this weekend,” he said. The Mississippi Highway Patrol are stepping up patrols for the Memorial Day weekend. MHP officials say they want a repeat of last year’s no fatality Memorial Day holiday. The 78-hour Memorial Day holiday began at

“Click It or Ticket” initiative in 2002. At that time the seat belt usage rate was about 50 percent. Since then, the rate has increased, and nearly 82 percent of motorists wear their seat belts. During last year’s Memorial Day holiday, the MHP issued a total of 8.367 tickets, investigated 101 crashes, made 246 DUI arrests and issued 975 seat belt violation and 165 child-restraint violation tickets.

number of statewide fatalities. In 2005, 931 people died on Mississippi roads and highways. Last year the number was down to 582, a reduction of 38 percent. “Seat belts save lives,” said MHP Director Colonel Donnell Berry. “The motoring public is better educated about the importance of wearing safety belts and it is making a difference.” Mississippi began its participation in the

6 p.m. Friday and ends at midnight Monday. “The Memorial Day weekend is the traditional beginning of the summer holiday travel season,” said Public Service Commissioner Albert Santa Cruz. “We plan to have all available resources out this Memorial Day weekend to encourage motorists to obey the rules of the road.” Over the past seven years there has been a steady decline in the


On this date: In 1521, Martin Luther was banned by the Edict of Worms (vohrms) because of his religious beliefs and writings. In 1868, the impeachment trial of President Andrew Johnson ended with his acquittal on the remaining charges. In 1938, the House Un-American Activities Committee was established by Congress. In 1940, the evacuation of more than 338,000 Allied troops from Dunkirk, France, began during World War II. In 1941, the American Flag House, where Betsy Ross once lived, was donated to the city of Philadelphia. In 1942, the U.S. War Department formally established the Armed Forces Radio Service (AFRS). The Tule Lake Segregation Center for Japanese-American wartime internees opened in northern California. In 1952, representatives of the United States, Britain, France and West Germany signed the Bonn Convention granting conditional sovereignty to, and ending the Allied occupation of, West Germany. In 1960, U.N. Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge accused the Soviets of hiding a microphone inside a wood carving of the Great Seal of the United States that had been presented to the U.S. Embassy in Moscow. In 1969, the Apollo 10 astronauts returned to Earth after a successful eight-day dress rehearsal for the first manned moon landing. In 1972, President Richard M. Nixon and Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev signed the AntiBallistic Missile Treaty in Moscow. (The U.S. withdrew from the treaty in 2002.) In 1981, 14 people were killed when a Marine jet crashed onto the flight deck of the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz off Florida. In 1998, the U.S. Supreme Court made it far more difficult for police to be sued by people hurt during high-speed chases. The Supreme Court ruled that Ellis Island — historic gateway for millions of immigrants — is mainly in New Jersey, not New York.

Ten years ago: Angering hard-liners, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon declared in a speech to his Likud Party that he was determined to reach a peace deal and end 36 years of rule over the Palestinians. An airplane carrying Spanish peacekeepers returning from Afghanistan crashed in Turkey, killing all 75 people aboard.

the afternoon before the main Relay for Life event at Crossroads Regional Park. Invitations have been sent out to survivors and caretakers who have attended the event in the past, but Survivors Meal organizers are also depending on word-ofmouth and any other ways of spreading the news to encourage more people to be part of the event. Students from Corinth High School have volunteered to serve the meal, tend the register, decorate cars and more. Following the meal and a short program, survivors and caregivers will

be escorted by police to the park in time for the survivors to take the first lap at the Relay for Life event, joined by the caregivers in the second lap. “It’s a beautiful program,” said Caples. “Someone calls the names of the survivors as they’re doing this.” Tate Baptist Church is located on Harper Road across from Corinth High School. Once survivors and caretakers pull into the parking lot, volunteers will be on hand to guide them to the church fellowship hall. The Survivors Committee wishes to thank Tate Baptist Church for sponsoring the event.

The Relay for Life event begins at 6 p.m.

the ground where they would be better maintained. An estimate of around $50,000 for an exhaust system was given to the board by Dan Taylor with Taylor Heating & Air Conditioning during an April meeting, “This is going to scare everybody to death,” said board member Sam Tull of the cost options presented by Cook Coggin. “What we need right now is the $50,000 exhaust system,” added operations manager Greg Moss. Plans for an exhaust system were part of the original proposal in the

multipurpose building before being eliminated due to costs. General manager Tammy Genovese said a letter will be sent to supervisors to see if funds are available in the Bricks and Mortar portion of its budget to cover the cost of an exhaust system. During motocross and monster truck shows this year, doors had to be open in attempt to draw smoke out of the building during extremely cold nights. With more dirt events such as those two planned for next year, the board was hoping to have some kind of system in place to draw smoke out of the building without bringing in the much cooler air.

Corinth, Miss.

Unions are mostly irrelevant within Mississippi politics Combative emails and phone calls trailed — as they almost always do when I write on that topic — my most recent column on the pursuit of a union vote at Nissan’s auto manufacturing plant by the United Auto Workers. Pro-union critics made their usual protestations about the historic good the unions did in getting rid of child labor sweat shops, unsafe working conSid Salter ditions, and winning the 40hour work week. But in point Columnist of fact, those are not serious issues in the current dispute over the UAW’s attempt to infiltrate foreignowned auto plants in the South. In considering the UAW’s position, it’s apparent that the declining political relevance of organized labor when one gets past contest Democratic Party primaries has made any expansion of the footprint of the unions difficult if not impossible. Unions have all but died on the political vine and that’s particularly true in right-to-work states like Mississippi. According to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, only some 48,000 Mississippians or 4.3 percent of Mississippi workers are members of labor unions with another 64,000 or 5.7 percent of the state’s workers who report no union affiliation but whose jobs are covered by a union or an employee association contract. That dwindling union membership in Mississippi means that there are over a million more non-union workers in this state than there are union members and non-joining but union-represented workers combined. In 2012, the BLS reported that 19 states had union membership rates above the U.S. average, of which 9 had rates above 15 percent. Of the nine states with the highest rates, three were located in the Northeast, one in the Midwest, and the remaining five were in the West. New York had the highest rate (23.2 percent), followed by Alaska (22.4 percent), Hawaii (21.6 percent), and Washington (18.5 percent). In fact, New York has had the highest membership rate in the nation for 16 of the past 18 years. In addition, the BLS confirms that 31 states and the District of Columbia had union membership rates below the national average of 11.3 percent in 2012. Eight of these states had union membership rates below 5.0 percent, with North Carolina having the lowest, 2.9 percent. The next lowest rates were recorded in Arkansas (3.2 percent), South Carolina (3.3 percent), and Mississippi (4.3 percent). About half of the 14.4 million union members in the U.S. lived in just seven states (California, 2.5 million; New York, 1.8 million; Illinois, 0.8 million; Pennsylvania, 0.7 million; and Michigan, New Jersey, and Ohio, (0.6 million each), though these states accounted for only about one-third of wage and salary employment nationally. Where unions still do matter politically in Mississippi is in the campaign coffers of candidates who are almost exclusively Democrats — but even that influence is declining with the erosion of union membership. According to the National Institute on Money in State Politics, labor unions contributed $442,550 to statewide and state legislative races in Mississippi in 2003. That number dropped to $260,636 in the 2007 elections and dropped again to $207,005 in the 2011 elections. The Center for Responsive Politics reports that since 1989, Thompson has received $2.01 million from organized labor with $93,000 of that total coming from the UAW. Thompson, an unabashed pro-labor Democrat, never denied his support for organized labor in both the public and private sectors. Thompson supported organized labor before he rose to Congress, so the campaign contributions they give him seem neither surprising nor sinister. But few if any Mississippi politicians have benefitted more from union support. Politically safe in his district, Thompson is free to embrace the unions without penalty on Election Day. That’s not a status any of the

Low-skilled workers get raw deal from Obamacare Would you like to have a “skinny” health insurance policy? Probably not. But if you’re employed by a large company, you may get one, thanks to Obamacare. That’s the conclusion of Wall Street Journal reporters Christopher Weaver and Anna Wilde Mathews. They report that insurance brokers are pitching and selling “low-benefit” policies across the country. You might be wondering what a “skinny” or “lowbenefit” insurance plan is. The terms may vary, but the basic idea is that policies would cover preventive care, a limited number of doctor visits and perhaps generic drugs. They wouldn’t cover things such as surgery, hospital stays or prenatal care. You might ask how Obamacare could encourage the proliferation of such policies. It was sold as a way to provide more coverage for more people, after all. And people were told they could keep the health insurance they had. As Weaver and Mathews explain, Obamacare’s requirement that insurance policies include “essential” benefits such as mental health services apply only to small businesses with fewer than 50 employees. But larger employers, they write, “need only cover preventive service, without a lifetime or annual dollarvalue limit, in order to avoid the across-the-workforce

penalty.” Low-benefit plans may cost an employer only $40 to $100 a month per Michael e m p l o y e e . Barone That’s less than the Columnist $2,000-peremployee penalty for providing no insurance. “We wouldn’t have anticipated that there’d be demand for these type of Band-Aid plans in 2014,” the Journal quotes former White House health adviser Robert Kocher. “Our expectation was that employers would offer high-quality insurance.” Oops. It turns out that Friedrich Hayek may have been right when he wrote that central planners would never have enough information to micromanage the economy. It’s probably true that businesses trying to attract and retain high-skill employees for long-term positions have an economic incentive to offer generous and attractive health insurance. Otherwise they’d lose good people to competitors. But the kind of businesses mentioned in the Journal story — restaurants, retailers, assisted-living chains — tend to employ lower-skill workers who typically work there only temporarily. In a high-unemployment economy they may not need

to offer gold-plated health insurance to get the workforce they need. Such employers would have to pay a $3,000 penalty for each employee who buys insurance on Obamacare’s health insurance exchanges. But it seems likely that many workers, especially young ones, would opt not to pay the hefty premiums for that. The problem here is that Obamacare’s architects seem to misunderstand the concept of insurance. People buy insurance to pay for low-probability, high-cost and undesirable events. It doesn’t make sense to hold onto enough cash to replace your house if it burns when you can buy an insurance policy that will cover that unlikely disaster. But Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has a different idea of what insurance is. In response to an American Society of Actuaries report that health insurance premiums would rise 32 percent under Obamacare, she said, “Some of these folks have very high catastrophic plans that don’t pay for anything unless you get hit by a bus.” Her idea apparently is that insurance should pay for just about every health care procedure. In her defense, the World War II decision to make the cost of health insurance deductible for employers and nontaxable for employees

has moved things in that direction. Many people have come to expect that. But as the Daily Beast’s Megan McArdle commented, “Coverage of routine, predictable services is not insurance at all; it’s a spectacularly inefficient prepayment plan.” Some Obamacare architects, including its namesake, want to move toward a single-payer system in which government would pay all health care costs. Many Obamacare opponents want a bigger role for markets, allowing consumers to choose insurance that covers catastrophes and paying for routine costs with tax-free (and in some cases subsidized) dollars. But if large numbers of employees are enrolled in “skinny” health insurance plans, as the Wall Street Journal article suggests, Obamacare will have produced an unanticipated outcome no one wants. People stuck with these policies will have insurance that pays for the equivalent of oil changes (up to six a year!) but not for the equivalent of wrecked car. Just the opposite of real insurance. (Daily Corinthian columnist Michael Barone, senior political analyst for The Washington Examiner, is a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, a Fox News Channel contributor and a coauthor of The Almanac of American Politics.)

President addresses much-needed American values President Obama gave two commencement addresses in one to graduates of Morehouse College in Atlanta, Ga., last weekend. It would be easy for this conservative to critique the political and social elements of his speech. Instead, I choose to focus on the inspirational part. The president struck the right note at the historically all-male college. AfricanAmerican men in America need more role models and encouragement to counter the reality, reinforced by much of the media, of too much failure, crime, imprisonment, out-of-wedlock births, a disproportionate abortion rate and other social maladies affecting many in the black community. The president underscored values any conservative could embrace when he spoke of the college’s objective of producing “good men, strong men, upright men” who will “better themselves so they could help others do the same.” He added, “In troubled neighborhoods all across this country — many of them heavily African American -too few of our citizens have

role models to guide them.” They do, but too often they are the wrong role models. Cal Only an Thomas A f r i c a n American Columnist man could say what the president said to these young African-American men. In this, he repeated what comedian Bill Cosby has been saying for years about personal responsibility and accountability, while taking heat from some in the black community. The president challenged the graduates to think beyond what their degree could do for them: “... it betrays a poverty of ambition if all you think about is what goods you can buy instead of what good you can do.” Given the size of government and especially welfare programs, the president’s statement “nobody is going to give you anything that you have not earned” rings a little hollow, but the ideal he stressed is worthy of praise. The president spoke of

previous generations who overcame hardships worse than theirs: “And if they overcame them, you can overcome them, too.” In the most poignant moment in the speech, the president said he wished he “had had a father who was not only present, but involved.” In too many African-American homes, there is neither. He said because he didn’t know his father he has tried to be a good husband and father to his wife and daughters. “I want to break that cycle where a father is not at home -- where a father is not helping to raise that son or daughter. I want to be a better father, a better husband, a better man.” As a husband and father he is an excellent role model. This is the message that needs to be delivered not only in the African-American community, but in all communities. Inspiration, followed by motivation, followed by perspiration can improve any life, while entitlement, envy and greed can only diminish it. The president asked — no, he commanded — the Morehouse graduates to “be a good role model, set

a good example for that young brother coming up. If you know somebody who’s not on point, go back and bring that brother along — those who’ve been left behind, who haven’t had the same opportunities we have. ... You’ve got to be engaged on the barbershops, on the basketball court, at church, spend time and energy to give people opportunities and a chance. Pull them up, expose them, support their dreams. Don’t put them down.” Beyond the rhetoric, the president acts as if these ideals can best be advanced by government, but even he seemed to acknowledge there is something more powerful than what happens in Washington. It is what happens inside an individual. The values the president stressed are, or once were considered to be, American values. They are needed most, not only where people live in poverty, but among those who suffer from a poverty of spirit. (Readers may email Daily Corinthian columnist Cal Thomas at

Political landscape changes with economy WASHINGTON — Alleged misbehavior by the Internal Revenue Service and other federal agencies gives the GOP something else to talk about and investigate as the economy clearly, if slowly, recovers on President Barack Obama’s watch, robbing Republicans of a central argument against Democrats. Amid a series of recent positive economic reports, the GOP is revving up its portrayal of the Obama administration as scandalridden and inept, while largely abandoning the party’s where-is-the-recovery criticism. Republicans had little choice, given that the economy has gained considerable strength over the past 18 months. Today, the federal budget deficit is shrinking rapidly and tax receipts are rising. Consumer confidence and spending are up, as are auto and housing sales. Stocks are near all-time highs. Such improvements give U.S. policymakers some rare breathing room, even if the nearly 12 million people still out of work don’t discern the brighter picture. While unemployment is at 7.5 percent, it’s down from the 10 percent of October 2009. Also, recent job creation in the private sector has been relatively strong. Republicans, who earlier stressed the weak recovery and what they depict as Obama’s economic mismanagement, are now busy denouncing his administration on several fronts: for allowing the IRS to target conservative groups for extra tax scrutiny; for engaging in an alleged cover-up on the nature of a deadly terrorist attack on a U.S. post last September in Benghazi, Libya; and for secretly seizing records of journalists from The Associated Press and Fox News. Obama and Democrats are trying to look beyond the ethics investigations

to talk up the recent economic gains and the president’s efforts to promote more jobs. He’s been trying to draw attention to his job-creation ideas in a series of out-of-town events before audiences of workers.

Obama refocuses terror threat level WASHINGTON — Some call it wishful thinking, but President Barack Obama has all but declared an end to the global war on terror. Obama is not claiming final victory over extremists who still seek to kill Americans and other Westerners. Instead, he is refocusing the long struggle against terrorism that lies ahead, steering the United States away from what he calls an equally frightening threat — a country in a state of perpetual war. In doing so, Obama recasts the image of the terrorists themselves, from enemy warriors to cowardly thugs and resets the relationship between the U.S. and Islam. His speech Thursday was designed to move America’s mindset away from a war footing and refine and recalibrate his own counterterrorism strategy. Obama asserted that al-Qaida is “on the path to defeat,” reducing the scale of terrorism to pre-Sept. 11 levels. That means that with the Afghanistan war winding down, Obama is unlikely to commit troops in large numbers to any conflict — in Syria or other countries struggling with instability in the uncertain aftermath of the Arab Spring — unless, as his critics fear, he tragically has underestimated al-Qaida’s staying power. “Wishing the defeat of terrorists does not make it so,” said Rep. Mac Thornberry, a Texas Republican who is vice chairman of the House Armed Services Committee and a member of the House Intelligence Committee. In Thornberry’s view, Obama is pushing the idea that “we can simply declare al-Qaida beaten

and go back to the pre9/11 era.” From the beginning of his presidency, Obama’s centerpiece of his national security strategy has been a desire to move beyond the wars he inherited in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as in the shadowy spaces occupied by alQaida and its offshoots now creeping up in North Africa and elsewhere. Those endeavors consumed enormous amounts of his administration’s time and attention during his first term, not to mention the incalculable costs paid by military members and their families. “This war, like all wars, must end,” he said. “That’s what history advises. That’s what our democracy demands.”

Key senators control immigration debate WASHINGTON — For all the soothing words she heard from fellow Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Mazie Hirono of Hawaii never had a chance to win a relatively modest change to farreaching immigration legislation. Instead, the hidden hand of the Gang of Eight reached out and rejected her attempt to create an immigration preference for close relatives of citizens with an extreme hardship — the same force that had already derailed dozens of other proposals deemed to violate the delicate trade-offs made by the bill’s authors. The gang — the four Republicans and four Democrats who forged the plan— held together “amazingly well under the circumstances,” said one member of the Judiciary Committee who was not part of the group. “It’s a very complex bill,” added Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah.

Bear sightings worry some county residents JACKSON COUNTY — Sightings of a black bear have some residents of Jackson County’s St. Martin community nervous. Nancy Bawcum snapped pictures of the bear roaming around her home in St. Martin on Tuesday morning. Her neighbor, William Koenigs, told WLOX TV ( he believes that same bear found its way onto his property just south of Interstate 10 that same day. Koenigs said he thinks the bear may have entered the property by digging under a back gate. He pointed to that hole and some smaller ones where the bear may have been digging in search of food. Koenigs said his dogs chased the bear up a pine tree. “You’ll see all the broken off bark. There’s the claw marks when he went up the tree,” Koenigs said. As he pulled the dogs away, the bear quickly climbed down and took off. “It was really kind of shocking, I mean, to see a bear that size, that close to the dogs,” said Koenigs. “I got three grandkids living at the house, ages 2 to 5. I mean, if one of them was out, they’re smaller than a black bear, so a bear wouldn’t feel threatened by them.” Walter Murphy followed the bear tracks from Koenig’s property to his land behind a subdivision. “I’ve seen bear tracks before up when I hunted a lot ... and this was an exceptionally big bear,” Murphy said. Wildlife officials say they know of two protected Louisiana Black Bears

living in Jackson County. “What we recommend is first and foremost, do not feed this bear. If he’s hanging around, pull in your garbage, pull in your dog food, your cat food, your bird food, just for a couple of days. He’s going to move on. He’s looking for food. He’s not a harm to anybody,” said Jim Walker, a spokesman for the MS Department of Wildlife, Fisheries & Parks.

Mayers is Delta State athletics director CLEVELAND — Ronald G. “Ronnie” Mayers has been named Director of Athletics and Director of Aquatics at Delta State Universitiy in Cleveland. Mayers has served as interim director since Oct. 1. He replaced Jeremy McClain, who resigned to accept a position at the University of Southern Mississippi. President William N. LaForge announced Mayers’ appointment Friday. Mayers has been associated with Delta State for 37 years in various capacities in the department of athletics.

Work center inmate on the loose FAYETTE — Mississippi authorities are looking for an inmate from the Jefferson County Community Work Center. A Department of Corrections news release says 32-year-old Melvin Toney left the facility in Fayette around 6 a.m. Saturday. He was last seen wearing prisonissue green and white striped pants and a white shirt with “MDOC Convict” printed on the back. Toney was serving a seven-and-a-half year sentence for cocaine possession. Anyone who spots Toney or has any information on him should

contact their local law enforcement agency or the Mississippi Department of Corrections at 662.745.6611.

Lofts, commercial space under development HATTIESBURG — If Daniel Jussely and Rob Tatum have their way, downtown Hattiesburg soon will be a cultural hub of “urbanite lifestyle” in Mississippi. As co-owners of Hub City Lofts, Jussely and Tatum are rejuvenating two of the Hub City’s oldest buildings, converting them into more than 50 loft-style apartments and more than 14,000 square feet of commercial space. The America Building, which was originally built in 1907 as the Ross Building, will host four retail spots on the first floor and 20 apartment spots on the top four floors. The six-story Carter Building — which has been a Hattiesburg fixture since 1904 — will have 9,685 square feet of retail space, along with 32 apartments that will command 26,060 square feet of residential space. “We’re really excited about the opportunity we have here,” Jussely said. “We’ve gotten an enormous response from all different age groups interested in spaces, and we’re looking forward to being part of the community downtown.” The America Building will see its first tenants in the next couple months. Jussely and Tatum will begin accepting leases for the apartments on June 1, and residents can start moving in July 1. The building will have 4,408 square feet of retail space and 17,927 square feet of residential living space.

Memorial Day is when many Americans take a step back to remember those who died in service to our country. Technology can bring us closer to those brave souls who died on the shores of Normandy or those laid to rest in Arlington National Cemetery, even if time and distance separate us. Don’t let lengthy to-do lists or holiday activities such as family picnics and long weekend getaways cause you to forget the reason we observe Memorial Day. Websites like http:// gravelocator.cem. hosted by the Department of Veterans Affairs keeps records of those interred at national cemeteries. Arlington National Cemetery maintains its records at The American Battle Monuments Commission also maintains in-

formation on all service men and women who died while serving overseas. Its collection of names and gravesites can be located at http:// php. Left-click on the war your loved one died in to search the cemeteries associated with that war. You could have a service member like my grandfather, Sgt. Max C. Kirkpatrick. When he finally made it back to French Camp, Miss., from the Pacific Theatre after World War II, he kindly told the U.S. Army he had no intentions of ever leaving the red hills of Attala County again. So, he was buried in the cemetery of the church he had attended as a child, less than half a mile from where he grew up. His name is not recorded in any of the national cemetery databases, but a photo of his tombstone and the cemetery where he is buried can be found at

Findagrave allows users to upload photos and request photos. For example, if you have family members buried in Illinois or South Carolina, you could look for their cemeteries online and quite possibly view their headstones from your computer. Furthermore, you can request a photo of a particular tombstone; if someone in that area is agreeable, he or she can go out to the cemetery, snap a photo for you and upload it to the site. Another site – http:// – also contains records, but it doesn’t seem to have gotten to the small cemetery where my grandfather is buried. Both of these sites allow searches either by the person’s name or by the cemetery. takes a bit of a different approach. It has a mobile app available for iPhone and Android smartphones. The app uses your phone’s built-in GPS abilities and camera

to enable you to map out cemeteries and upload the information to the site. This service is free, but you will need to create an account. Once the account is created, you can take photos with GPS tags, add a new cemetery to the database and transcribe the headstones. The site’s goal is to make it easy to record information for genealogists. There is another app in the works called LegacyTec, but it is still under review and not available for the public yet. You can preview this app on YouTube at Wouldn’t our loved ones be amazed by what technology enables us to do as we remember their contributions to us and to this country? This Memorial Day, as tiny American flags are placed on fallen service members’ headstones, remember their sacrifice and use technology to connect you to your family’s past.

Newspaper tour Cub Scout Pack 27, Den 4 in Corinth recently took a tour of the Daily Corinthian facility on Harper Road. Editor Mark Boehler gave the Cub Scouts, their parents and other family members a tour of the newspaper, including its news, production, distribution and printing operation. Scouts and family were surprised to learn the Daily Corinthian prints four area weekly newspapers and produces a dozen magazines and 10 special sections every year, plus Community Profiles and Pickwick Profiles specialty publications.

Highlights of the 2013 legislative session BY BUBBA CARPENTER State Representative

The 2013 Regular Session of the Mississippi Legislature was a whirlwind 90-day session. Deadlines were pushed up, and it proceeded at a much faster pace than last year’s 125-day session. But despite the shorter session, the House ended the 2013 Legislative session on Thursday, April 4, — a full three days ahead of the scheduled April 7 deadline for Sine Die. While this year’s legislative session has ended, my dedication and service to Northeast Mississippi continues throughout the year. I would like to take this opportunity to update our citizens on the events of the 2013 Legislative Session.

Education The 2013 Legislative Session has been heralded by Governor Bryant as a “transformational” one, specifically concerning the passage of major education reform. As always, improving education remains the number one priority of the Mississippi Legislature, with more than 55.8 percent of the state’s general fund budget devoted to educational pursuits (including 40.8 percent of the $5.772 billion budget earmarked for K-12 education alone. These numbers are contingent upon the Legislature funding Medicaid for which they have reserved approximately $840 million). Major strides were taken during the 2013 Session to improve Mississippi’s educational standing. The charter school debate garnered the most publicity again for the

2013 House Education Committee this session. Last year, a similar bill was introduced and did not make it out of committee during conference week. “The Mississippi Charter Schools Act of 2013,” House Bill 369 (HB369), declares that a charter school is a nonprofit, public school that is designed to foster innovation and increase community involvement in the education of community children. The bill establishes a new authorizing board comprised of seven members (three appointed by the Governor; three appointed by the Lieutenant Governor and one appointed by the Department of Education). HB369 allows for charter schools in all districts, giving local school boards in A-, Band C-rated districts veto power. It caps the number of charter schools per year to 15. Under this bill, 75 percent of teachers would be required to be licensed or certified by the state. The “Mississippi Charter Schools Act of 2013” was adopted after great debate in both Chambers. The final conference report was adopted by House members with a bipartisan vote of 62-56. Senate Bill 2347 (SB2347), commonly known as the “Third Grade Reading Gate,” passed the House floor by a wide margin vote of 9916. This bill aims to require children to be able to read on a third grade reading level before being promoted to the fourth grade, thus ending social promotion. Enactment of this measure ensures that children in grades K-3 will receive intense reading instruc-

tion, while being tested at every level. Additionally, K-3 teachers and administrators will receive special training on the most effective methods to improve literacy among our children. Governor Phil Bryant’s Education Works Program was passed in the form of Senate Bill 2658 (SB2658) by a vote of 114-0. This bill was commonly referred to throughout the session as the “omnibus bill” because it is comprised of so many different elements like: requiring high schools with graduation rates below 80 percent to submit plans on how they propose to increase graduation rates to the Mississippi Department of Education; offering 200 scholarships to high-performing students to become teachers in Mississippi for at least five years; and creating a pilot program in four Mississippi school districts to implement the performance-based compensation program for teachers. Other measures in the bill include: ■ Directing $6 million to Teach for America. ■ Directing $3 million to continue early childhood education efforts conducted by Mississippi Building Blocks. ■ Directing $300,000 to training for Dyslexia professionals. ■ Directing $22.6 million to the National Board Certified Teacher program. ■ Directing $250,000 to help high school students obtain work certifications. ■ Directing $1 million to dropout prevention and intervention efforts conducted by Jobs for Mississippi Graduates. Legislators also


the good.


passed Senate Bill 2188 (SB2188) which raises the requirements for students wishing to enter education programs at Mississippi universities. Students must have a 2.75 GPA on pre-major coursework and either score a 21 on the ACT or pass the Praxis Core Academic Skills for Educators assessment. Additional educational bills passed this session include: ■ House Bill 1530 (HB1530) requires students to be at school 63 percent of the day in order to be counted as attending. ■ Senate Bill 2395 (SB2395), or the “Early Learning Act of 2013,” authorizes the Department of Education to implement a voluntary pre-K program on a phased-in basis beginning with the 2013-2014 school year. ■ Senate Bill 2633 (SB2633) enacts the “Mississippi Student Religious Liberties Act of 2013.” This act will provide protection for children to express their religious views in school. This covers expression in class assignments, organization of religious groups and activities, and establishment of a public forum for student speakers at non-graduation and graduation events.

Second Amendment Rights Due to the tightening of Second Amendment rights in states around the nation, the leadership introduced and passed several bills focused on protecting those rights. House Bill 485 (HB485) exempts the names and addresses of people who have con-

cealed carry permits from being a matter of public record. House Bill 2 (HB2) clarifies language affecting citizens licensed to carry concealed weapons in Mississippi. This law protects people who have a permit to carry a concealed weapon even if the weapon is holstered and thus not totally hidden. House Bill 1139 (HB1139) allows hunters to use a weapon of choice for deer hunting on private land after November 30, 2014.

Budget The proposed FY 2014 General Fund budget demanded a lot of attention and nurturing as it was crafted throughout the 2013 Session. House and Senate members were able to reach an agreement on a General Fund budget of approximately $5.772 billion. Because of the uncertainty of the Medicaid program, the numbers used to break down the 2014 General Fund budget do factor in the $840 million set aside should the Legislature vote to fund the program. Some key agencies receiving a funding increase include: ■ K-12 Education — $2.3 billion, up 2.12 percent, with the Mississippi Adequate Education Program (MAEP) component alone totaling $2.062 billion, up by $27 million, or 1.34 percent ■ Universities — $713.9 Million, up 6.59 percent ■ Community and Junior Colleges — $246.9 million, up 4 percent ■ Mental Health — $237.4 million, up 5.84 percent ■ Corrections — $337.9 million, up 8.39 percent

■ Human Services —$144.7 million, up 11.52 percent ■ Military, Police and Veterans’ Affairs — $91.4 million, up 1.65 percent ■ Public Safety — $72.8 million, up 5 percent

Pro-Business, ProEconomic Growth Several bills were brought forward this session which supported Mississippi businesses, pro-economic growth and the tourism industry. Creating jobs and incentives for new companies remains a focus of the House and Senate legislative leadership. Many of the pro-business bills passed included tax exemptions for various industries. House Bill 844 (HB844) exempts members of certain industrial manufacturers, farming entities and the fishing/ shrimping industries from paying sales tax on electricity and fuel required to keep those industries running. These groups currently are taxed at 1.5 percent, which is a reduced rate from the standard six percent sales tax. This will cost the General Fund approximately $6.9 million. Supporters of the bill say this tax break provides an incentive for new businesses seeking to move to Mississippi. Mississippi is one of 13 states utilizing this incentive. Opponents believe the state cannot afford to eliminate a vital tax to such a broad group of businesses when the state struggles to fund many of its programs. Similarly, House Bill 591 (HB591) offers a sales tax exemption and Please see SESSION | 12A

Nissan marks 10th anniversary in Canton BY JEFF AMY Associated Press

JACKSON — On May 27, 2003, a gold Nissan Quest minivan burst through a paper barrier to the cheers of assembled workers and dignitaries in the company’s new Canton plant. It was Mississippi’s entry into automaking. A decade later, some workers are looking back at their changed lives and Nissan celebrated with a free Saturday festival at Veterans Memorial Stadium in Jackson that included a circus, a concert by Kool & the Gang and a fireworks show. By the day that first minivan rolled off the line, Bob Mullins had been working for Nissan Motor Co. for more than two years. Mullins was vice president of economic development at Hinds County Community College when he got a call asking if he could come to Tennessee the very next day to interview for a job as the Japanese automak-

er’s first Mississippi-hired employee. “The first thing we did was take a tour of the plant in Smyrna, Tennessee,� remembers Mullins, whose employee number is not 1, but 30,001. “It was nothing like I’d ever seen, and I had been to a lot of plants in Mississippi.� Mullins joined human resources director Galen Medlin, who was sent down from Tennessee, in recruiting and hiring workers. They worked first from a rented storefront on the east side of the courthouse square in Canton, and then in the training center built for Nissan on the west side of Interstate 55, across from the future plant site. The building was empty at first, Mullins said, but soon became ridiculously cramped as more employees were added. When the company sought workers, its minimum requirements were a high school diploma and

two years of work experience. Total applicants by the time the plant opened? 87,000. The odds of getting hired weren’t as long as winning the lottery, but new employees could still feel like minor celebrities. “When you first got hired and you got your Nissan uniform and you went to the store or mall, you always got your questions,� said Randy Pippins, repeating a story that most long-time employees tell. “It was like you were a semi-star.� Pippins had dropped out of college and was working at a call center in Starkville when he got hired by Nissan. He started as a paint shop technician while workers got trained and production slowly ramped up.

“You might see one or two vehicles in an area all day long,� Pippins said. “That’s how slow we were running.� Over time, he completed his bachelor’s degree and entered management. “I never looked back,� Pippins said. “I don’t see myself going anywhere. I see myself retiring from this place.� The anniversary comes soon after a January announcement that Nissan would start making the Murano crossover vehicle in Canton in late 2014, adding 400 jobs to its current total of about 5,200. Canton, which was built to focus on trucks, now makes six vehicles: the Armada and Xterra SUVs, the Titan and Frontier pickup trucks, the NV van and the Altima sedan.

How will you pay for    

retirement? Let’s talk.

Former foster mom weighs adopting troubled young girl DEAR ABBY: Some time ago, my husband and I became foster parents to a little girl who had been seriously abused. After we had cared for her only seven months, she was returned to her parents. Shortly after that, the mom signed guardianship over to the grandmother and now the grandmother is considering putting the child back into the system. This is a girl with “difficult” issues. Although I deeply loved her, the time she was with us was very challenging and hard. Do I sign up for a life filled with uncertainty and give this child a shot at stability? Or do I pray that she will find the perfect home to meet all her needs? — UNCERTAIN ABOUT THE FUTURE DEAR UNCERTAIN: Only you decide about whether you are up to the challenge of trying to fix this damaged girl. There are no guarantees, and it is no disgrace to admit this is more than you feel you can manage. However, if you feel that you and your husband can make a difference, it is important that you know you won’t be alone in trying to handle her emotional issues. In this country, support systems for children are better than they are for adults. Your

county mental health department can guide you, and if there are medical schools nearby, they Abigail may sponsor to Van Buren programs train young psychiatrists Dear Abby who can also help you. D E A R ABBY: My husband and I have been married for 18 years. Our marriage has had its ups and downs. Last year we separated for eight months. We decided to stay married and are now again living together. I found out not long ago that he slept with my daughter’s best friend. I am horrified that he’d do such a thing, because as a teenager she would hang out at our home. I feel that what he did should have never happened. Although I would like to think our marriage can be repaired, I still have my doubts. Should I feel this way or let the past stay in the past? — LOOKING FOR ANSWERS IN OKLAHOMA DEAR LOOKING FOR ANSWERS: Not every woman would forgive an affair that seems this uncomfortably “in-

cestuous.” A counselor may be able to help you sort out your feelings, and joint marriage counseling should definitely be considered before you make up your mind. DEAR ABBY: What is a man’s ethical responsibility when he hears of a crime in group therapy? While attending a Narcotics Anonymous meeting, I heard a man confess that he had dropped a cinder block on a boy’s head when he was 12. The man was never arrested for the crime. I can’t stop thinking about the boy who was his victim. Should I tell the police? — SOMEWHERE IN THE SOUTH DEAR SOMEWHERE: It is the group leader’s responsibility to contact the authorities if a group member is a danger to himself or others. If this happened when the man was 12, what would it accomplish to report it at this point? Because this has been preying on your mind, you should talk with the group leader about the matter. (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). There’s still something to be learned from that time long ago. You’ll gather your memories and look for common themes. Someone else who was there can shed new light on the matter. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll be taken care of. Believing this makes you live better. Your faith will free you. You won’t be so focused on security that you’re afraid to branch out, try new things and experience life. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There is magical potential wrapped up in the day. You’ll feel like a wizard as you concoct the perfect plan. Your high level of concentration will energize your work. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You may feel caught in between two worlds: cut off from what you are leaving behind, but not yet connected to your new future. Step forward in faith, because you’re doing the right thing. Keep moving. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22).

Even though you have many interests, it will take something brand-new to stretch and energize you. Be on the lookout for the book, hobby or pursuit that will help you stay strong, young and relevant. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It’s only natural to want to please the people close to you, including those who pay you. But recognize that while their approval may be necessary in the scheme of work, it doesn’t speak to your worth as a person. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Worrying about money is silly now, and it will ruin your mood, too. Believe that you have more than enough and that anything you need you’ll find a way to earn. Be peaceful on the matter. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Themes of the day include knowing what you can do and being independently strong. Remind yourself of the times when you have prevailed. Give yourself a pep talk, and then go create more proof.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). Whether you are in a position to lead those who don’t readily take direction or are following someone whose leadership you don’t understand, you won’t regret being patient and kind. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll accept opportunities you once would have dismissed. Those options didn’t seem to fit before, but your life has changed, and now you can see how to make use of what’s presented to you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Ordered serenity is an ideal that is not always represented in your environment. But today this may work for you. Messy circumstances may cause you to rely more on instinct and bring out your spontaneity. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It will take a while for you to get into a productive frame of mind, but once you get into the right headspace, you’ll be unstoppable. Take precautions to guard against distractions.

All-Star Game ends with split BY DONICA PHIFER 

A slew of North Mississippi’s best senior players took to the field for one more game on Saturday in the 23rd Annual Northeast Mississippi Coaches Association for Better Baseball’s All-Star Game. Six members from Alcorn County’s four high schools participated in the game, while Biggersville Head Coach Eric Lancaster headed the charge for the 1A/2A match. The West took the 1A/2A game 8-3 while the East flipped the result in 3A-6A for their own 8-3 victory. Biggersville’s lone participant, and its only senior team member, Jordan Davis took the loss for the East, throwing two innings and playing another two on third base. Davis was also the recipient of the Brown Memorial Award for Good Sportsmanship during the post-game ceremony. Alcorn Central’s Jay Moore also received an award for his

effort on the field, the Ralph Bruce Memorial Award following the second game of the day. Moore’s teammate Hunter Bronson logged an inning on the mound, tossing one strike out and giving up one hit to Ripley’s Cody James. Moore put in two big plays for himself, touching base in the second inning after being struck by a pitch before stealing second and moving to third off a dropped ball. With no pitcher on the mound, Moore moved on to an outright steal of home plate, scoring a tying run for the East after the West put in two runs in the opening inning. A passed ball score by Amory’s Tanner Poole gave the East a 3-2 advantage in the third before a four run sixth inning. Faced with loaded bases, Mooreville’s John Morgan Gilland put in a single for the first run before Jimmy Cockrell of Columbus was walked for an unearned fifth. Tishomingo County’s

Johnny McDuffy added another, as Corinth’s Osiris Copeland followed with a tworun RBI for an 8-2 lead. Central’s third player, Dustin Sparks finished the game with no hits as did Kossuth’s lone senior Josh Whitaker. Sparks and Whitaker both logged multiple innings fielding their high school spots first and second base. Also, Kossuth Head Coach Daniel Threadgill received Coach of The Year honors during the postgame ceremony on Saturday while former Corinth High School coach Jay Walker and Tishomingo County’s Jerry Long and Scotty James were among the inductees into the NEMCABB Hall of Fame.

2nd memorial golf tourney tees off Saturday BY H. LEE SMITH II

Shiloh Ridge is remembering one of its own again. The Second Annual Charles King Memorial Golf Tournament is set for an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start on Saturday at Shiloh Ridge Athletic Club. King was a longtime golfer and friend to those at Shiloh Ridge. Sponsored by the Shiloh Ridge Men’s Golf Association, all proceeds from the 4-man

scramble will go directly to St. Jude Children’s Hospital in King’s name. The event is open to the general pubic at a cost of $60 per player or $240 per team. Green fees, cart rental, chances on door prizes and lunch – provided by the Shiloh Ridge Men’s Golf Association -- are included in the fee. “Charlie, as he was called by many of his friends, loved the game of golf and played as much as he could up to his

untimely death following as accidental fall as his home,” said Charles Ellington, a member of the Shiloh Ridge Men’s Golf Association. Ellington said to this day, King is spoken of kindly by his many golf buddies at “The Ridge.” First and second places will be awarded from Saturday’s event. Longest drive and closest to the pin will also be recognized. To help balance things out

for what could be a very diverse field, participants 12 and under and over 62 will play from the yellow tees. The middle group 13-62 will tee off from the white tees. Mulligans, with a limit of two per person, will also be available for purchase. Registration forms can be picked up at the Shiloh Ridge Pro Shop. For more information, call Shiloh Ridge Athletic Club at 286-8000.

Minor leads Braves to 8th win in row BY BEN WALKER Associated press

NEW YORK — Start-by-start over the years, the Atlanta Braves have seen Mike Minor emerging as a young, talented pitcher. Perhaps as a hitter, too. Minor homered for his first two RBIs in the majors and struck out 10 as the Atlanta Braves posted their second win in a matter of hours, beating the New York Mets 6-0 Saturday for their eighth straight victory. “He’s been fun to watch,” Atlanta manager Fredi Gonzalez said, later adding, “he’s a good athlete.” Earlier, Dan Uggla hit a goahead single in the 10th inning and the Braves won 7-5 in the resumption of a game suspended because of rain Friday night after eight innings with the score tied. Minor (6-2) then pitched 7 1-3 innings of three-hit ball, sending the Mets to their fifth loss in a row overall and eighth straight at Citi Field. Minor was hardly a force at the plate coming in — he was a paltry 8 for 108 (.074) in four seasons, striking out in exactly half of those at-bats. He perked up for his first two-hit game in the majors. In the third inning, Minor singled to become the Braves’ first baserunner of the game, and a bat boy brought him a warmup jacket on a blustery, cool evening. The next time up in the fifth, with a light rain, the 25-year-old lefty never had time to get chilly. Despite gusts that kept knocking down fly balls, Minor hit a two-run drive inside the left field foul pole off Dillon Gee (2-6) that broke a scoreless tie. “Got to have power, like me,” Minor said with a grin. Minor homered for the first time since his senior year of high school, and it touched off a fiverun burst. Minor connected after a two-out single by Chris Johnson, and they smiled the whole way from home plate back to the bench. Minor’s teammates celebrated the shot, too, and big first baseman Freddie Freeman hugged the pitcher and playfully jumped up and down with him in the dugout. There was a fireworks show after the game. The seats were nearly empty, with few bundledup fans sticking around.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Tim Duncan scored the first five points of overtime, and the San Antonio Spurs rallied from an 18-point deficit to beat the Memphis Grizzlies 104-93 Saturday night and move a win away from the NBA Finals. The Spurs grabbed a 3-0 lead in the Western Conference finals and now have won five straight this postseason. With the memory of blowing a 2-0 lead a year ago in the West finals to Oklahoma City, when they lost the next four, the Spurs shook off their sloppy play early and pushed the young Grizzlies to the edge of elimination in the

first West final played in Memphis. San Antonio, which didn’t lead this game until the opening minute of the fourth quarter, can wrap up the series Monday in Memphis and get back to the finals for the first time since their last title in 2007. The Spurs hit eight of their 10 shots in overtime, with Duncan scoring seven of his 24 points. Tony Parker had five of his 26 in overtime, and even Tiago Splitter, playing with four fouls, scored six in the extra five minutes to finish with 11. Mike Conley led Memphis with 20 points. Marc Gasol had 16 points and 14 rebounds, Zach Randolph added 14 and

15, and Quincy Pondexter had 15 points. But the Grizzlies, who thrived at the free throw line in knocking off No. 1 seed Oklahoma City in the semifinals, got there only 18 times and made only 10. The Grizzlies last led 85-84 with 1:04 left in regulation on a 15-footer by Gasol. After that, they managed only to tie it up twice, the last on a layup by Randolph with 4:28 left in overtime. Duncan scored and knocked down the free throw with 4:10 remaining to put the Spurs ahead to stay. The Spurs dominated the Grizzlies in the paint, outscoring Memphis 58-42 to offset their 17 turnovers, which the

Grizzlies turned into 25 points. After the Grizzlies outscored San Antonio in the first quarter, the Spurs outscored them in each of the final three periods and overtime, where they had an 18-7 edge to put away the win. Memphis, which had a lead for only 90 seconds in San Antonio, opened up with its trademark grit and grind defense, forcing eight turnovers in the first quarter to grab an 18-point lead. The Spurs quit turning the ball over and whittled away that lead to set up a doozy of a fourth quarter where the teams swapped the lead 11 times with 10 ties — all in the final 17 minutes.

an income tax credit to companies moving their headquarters to Mississippi. Such companies must create at least 20 jobs to qualify. A measure to incentivize oil companies and drillers to expand operations in southwest Mississippi relative to the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale Project also passed in the form of House Bill 1698 (HB1698). Horizontally drilled wells, a rare and complicated form of drilling used for this project, require special knowledge and equipment to produce oil. This bill reduces the rate of severance tax to 1.3 percent for the first 30 months on oil and gas produced from these wells. Additionally, a county may, by resolution, enter into a road maintenance agreement with a taxpayer that is eligible for the reduced severance tax. Supporters believe this will be an economic boom for southwest Mississippi much like North Dakota has experienced where unemployment rates are at an all-time low, and sales tax revenues are at an all-time high. Opponents contend this work will be done at

the taxpayersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; expense in the name of economic development, and that incentives offered will take money away from the counties. In the spirit of the probusiness atmosphere favored by legislative leadership, House members passed House Bill 722 (HB722) that revises the zoning of health care industry facilities under the Mississippi Health Care Industry Zone Act, which passed last year. HB722 authorizes the Mississippi Development Authority (MDA) to certify Health Care Industry Zones in areas where a health care industry facility is located within a five-mile radius of certain accredited colleges and universities. The targeted colleges and universities must train workers for jobs in health care or pharmaceutical fields of study. Senate Bill 2462 (SB2462) extends the Mississippi Motion Picture Incentive Act to include computer or video game businesses that wish to locate in Mississippi. Enactment of this measure increases the amount of payroll to $5 million, allowing this group to apply it toward the Mississippi Motion Picture Incentive Act Rebate.

Family Protection Once again this session, several bills were introduced and passed that focused on protecting children and families. House Bill 1009 (HB1009) prompted prolonged debate among House members. Enactment of this bill will give the Department of Human Services (DHS) the authority to contract certain services with outside vendors. Supporters of the bill believe it will recoup a portion of taxpayer money in uncollected child support (approximately $1 billion). Opponents of the bill maintain that the bill, as written, would allow privatization of all functions of DHS, and that privatization in a limited fashion has not worked well. Opponents also believe that costs to provide privatized services will exceed current costs to taxpayers. Furthermore, opponents believe that the proper course would be to appropriately fund the DHS budget. Members adopted the conference report by a narrow vote of 62-56. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lenoraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Law,â&#x20AC;? Senate Bill 2732 (SB2732), amends the sex offender registry law. Upon release from prison, a sex

offender must register his/her place of residence. This law requires offenders to wear a GPS tracking device upon release from prison to prevent evasion of the registry law. An amendment was added to prohibit sex offenders from living within 3,000 feet from a school. House Bill 481 (HB481) revises the use of an ignition-interlock device for DUI offenders. Its aim is to strengthen laws against drunk driving. Should a person be convicted of a DUI, under this law, the judge has the option to require the person convicted to install an ignition-interlock device in their car for six months or suspend their license for 90 days. Usage of the device prevents a vehicle from starting if a person has alcohol on their breath.

Medicaid Despite enacting historic education reforms and passing much other noteworthy legislation, the Legislature ended the Regular Session without reauthorizing Medicaid or appropriating the funds necessary to run the program after July 1. The existing Medicaid program serves nearly

700,000 of our stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s children, aged, blind and disabled citizens, nursing home patients, etc. The sticking point revolved around whether to expand Medicaid to include an additional 300,000 adult which is optional for states under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obamacareâ&#x20AC;?). Generally, House Democrats wanted a vote to expand Medicaid before the session ended, but House Republicans contending that a debate or vote on expansion at this time would be both premature and imprudent unless and until more information is provided by the Federal government. For technical reasons relating to 3/5 super-majority vote requirements, and also to the fact that some members claim real or perceived ethical conflicts of interest, thereby affecting the total number of votes needed for passage, none of the four separate Medicaid bills brought to the floor passed the House. Neither party budged from its position, and as a result, Medicaid was neither expanded nor extended (or funded) during the Regular Session, and the existing program will terminate July 1 un-

less Governor Bryant calls the Legislature back into Special Session to further tackle the issue.

Special Session I am confident the Mississippi Legislature will return to the Capitol before the deadline of June 30 to come to an agreement on Medicaid. We have a responsibility to the 700,000 current enrollees, nursing homes, and hospitals to resolve this issue. Failure to fund our existing Medicaid program would be detrimental to all Mississippi Families. Hospitals and Nursing Homes could be forced to lay off healthcare workers compromising healthcare to our elder, children, and others dependent on vital services. While this is highlights the 2013 Legislative Session, I would be happy to answer any questions concerning current legislation, new legislation, or ideas for the upcoming session in 2014.

The service will start at 11 a.m. Vietnam veteran James H. Minor, who served from 1966 through 1969, will provide the keynote remarks in remembrance of these fallen American soldiers. The service will begin with welcoming remarks by Superintendent Bundy and include an opening prayer, the keynote presentation, wreath laying, honor guard rifle salute by Veterans of Foreign Wars, and officially close with the playing of Taps. After closure of the first ceremony, activities will move to the Shiloh National Cemetery, where at 11:30 a.m., a second service will be conducted beneath the

The story of Confederate Gen. Dabney Maury There is an old saying that goes “Good advice is worth its weight in gold.” On the 4th of October, 1862, Gen. Van Dorn got some golden advice from one of his division commanders, Brigadier General Dabney H. Maury. Dabney Herndon Maury was a native Virginian, born in 1822 and was raised by his uncle. His dad, a Navy officer, died when Dabwas still a Tom ney toddler and the Parson job of bringing up the little felPark Ranger low was given to his young uncle, Matthew Fontaine Maury. Matthew would become famous for his studies of Oceanography and would later be known as the “Pathfinder of the Seas.” Dabney received an appointment to the West Point class of 1846 and joined a veritable who’s who of future generals. No less than twenty men in his class would achieve the coveted rank including George McClellan, Samuel Sturgis, George Pickett, and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson. “Dab” didn’t have much use for Jackson who he considered “awkward and uncultured in manner and appearance.” Oh, and by the way, Dab was his real nickname, I didn’t make it up. Maury graduated 37th in a class of 59 and was assigned to the Regiment of Mounted Rifles. The Mexican War was in full swing and Dab was soon on his way to the Rio Grande. Before he could get into action, he was wounded in a hunting accident near Monterey and while he was recovering he became fast friends with Captain Ulysses “Sam” Grant. At the Battle of Cerro Gordo, Lt. Maury ordered his company to charge down a slope, but half way down the hill he found he was the only one making the charge. A bullet shattered his left arm and an overworked surgeon told him it would have to be amputated. Dab asked the sawbones to work on another man first and then mounted a mule and rode five miles to a find a doctor who would treat the wound rather than cut it off. The arm was saved though it hung useless at his side for the rest of his life. After a short convalescence he was transferred to New York and a position on the staff at West Point. For four years he taught geography, history, ethics and infantry tactics. He

Brigadier General Dabney H. Maury

Perhaps General Maury’s greatest contribution came years later when he was the driving force behind the Southern Historical Society and the 52 volumes of war related papers it published. would go on to write Tactics for Mounted Rifles which became the textbook for the horse soldiers on both sides during the Civil War. The man literally wrote the book on cavalry operations. When the war broke out, he was at his post in Santé Fe in the New Mexico Territory. He had decided to resign his commission about the same time he was booted out of the army, “it having been ascertained to the satisfaction of the War Department that he entertained and had expressed treasonable designs.” He made the long trip home to Virginia where he cast his lot with the new Confederacy. In a single day he was appointed Colonel of Cavalry of the Virginia forces, Captain of the Regular Cavalry of the Confederacy, and Lieutenant Colonel of the provisional army. It must have made it tough to order his new uniform.

Maury’s first assignment was not to his liking. He wanted to remain in Virginia near his wife and mother but was sent across the Mississippi where he became Chief of Staff to Gen. Earl Van Dorn. With the assignment came a promotion to colonel. He was at the disastrous Battle of Elk Horn Tavern (Pea Ridge) and then accompanied the “Army of the West” across the river to Corinth. Maury had done well in Arkansas and was promoted to brigadier general and given field command of one of Van Dorn’s divisions. He led his three brigades at the Battle of Iuka though they were never called on to fight. A few weeks later he was with the newly christened “Army of West Tennessee” which Van Dorn planned to lead in an attack on Corinth. The capture of Corinth was just the first step in Van Dorn’s grand plan of driving the Union out of West Tennessee and all

the way through Kentucky to the Ohio River. Once this goal was met, he would link up with Gen. Bragg’s Army of Tennessee and together they would cross the river into Ohio or Indiana. It was a bold venture that could have changed the course of the war. As Maury later wrote, “But such speculations are vain and sad enough now; my present business is to tell the sorrowful story as it was, not to dream about what it might have been.” Maury’s division set out on the campaign with roughly 4,800 men. They made up about a quarter of Van Dorn’s army but they did more than their fair share of the fighting. It was Maury’s men who broke the Union defenses at Oliver’s Hill and later forced the Federals to abandon Battery F. On the second day of the battle half of the division punched a hole in the defensive line and penetrated all the way to the railroad crossing at the heart of Corinth. The other half of the division made the three tragic charges against Battery Robinett. In two days of bitter fighting Maury’s division had lost nearly 2,000 men killed, wounded and captured. By noon on October 4th Van Dorn realized his grand design had failed and he ordered a retreat. Walking back to Ripley, however, was not as simple as it sounds. You see, the army had marched north from Ripley and actually entered Tennessee before they turned east and marched to Chewalla. (That’s pronounced “Sha-wally” to you non-locals.) Van Dorn thought it would be a good idea to leave his 500 supply wagons on the road to Chewalla so they would not slow him down when he made his attack. Now that he was in retreat he had to return the same way he had come or else lose the wagons and all the food in them. The army was pretty beat up, but they kept marching through the long afternoon and by dark they were making camp in the low hills south of Chewalla. The men in ranks were glad for the rest, but the officers were left with their mouths hanging open in surprise. They wanted to keep marching at least a few more miles till they crossed over the Tuscumbia and put the river between themselves and the enemy. Then Van Dorn explained his reasoning to his senior officers. He planned to march southeast to Rienzi, turn to the

north and attack Corinth again, this time from below. You could have knocked them over with a feather. General Price, second-incommand, was astonished and decided Van Dorn’s decision “came from a mind rendered desperate by misfortune.” Price, Maury and a few others climbed into his wagon to try and talk some sense into the boss. “Old Pap” Price pointed out the army was in no condition to fight again and that if they headed off for Rienzi the enemy would surely capture the train of 500 wagons waiting up the road. It was Dab Maury who finally got “Buck” Van Dorn to listen to reason. He told him, “Van Dorn, you are the only man I ever saw who loves danger for its own sake. When any daring enterprise is before you, you cannot adequately estimate the obstacles in your way.” Van Dorn thought about it for a minute. “While I do not admit the correctness of your criticism, I feel how wrong I shall be to imperil this army through my own peculiarities…I will countermand the orders and move at once on the road to Ripley.” Another disastrous chapter had been averted, but there was still a final page to be turned. The next day Maury’s decimated division suffered another 500 casualties at Davis Bridge on the Hatchie River. When it was all said and done his division lost 52% of its men over three days of hard fighting. Imagine, if you can, how much worse it would have been if Dab Maury had kept his mouth shut and stayed out of the wagon? Thousands more would have perished, men who would become vital in the upcoming defense of Vicksburg. Dabney was promoted to Major General and finished out the war in command of the Confederate defenses at Mobile, Alabama. He was forced to evacuate the city on April 10, 1865, the day after General Lee surrendered to Grant in Virginia. Perhaps General Maury’s greatest contribution came years later when he was the driving force behind the Southern Historical Society and the 52 volumes of war related papers it published. We have the entire collection in our research library at the Interpretive Center, and I for one am very grateful to him. I use them every day.

NY’s Main Beach tops annual list


Sunday, May 26, 2013


BY FRANK ELTMAN Associated Press

EAST HAMPTON, N.Y. — This may be hard to believe in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, but an annual list of the best beaches in the country has a New York beach ranked No. 1. Less surprisingly, that beach is in East Hampton, the vacation playground for the rich and famous. In an announcement that coincides annually with the unofficial start of summer, coastal expert Stephen P. Leatherman on Friday released the 23rd version of his Top 10 Beach List, placing Main Beach in East Hampton at the top. “The thing about the Hamptons is that people are so proud of their beaches out there,” Leatherman told The Associated Press in an interview in advance of the release of his list. “People pick up their litter there, the bathrooms are clean; they provide good services.” Leatherman, who goes by the nickname Dr. Beach, visited Main Beach earlier this month. He said that unlike many beaches farther to the west and in New Jersey, the beaches on eastern Long Island saw less erosion and flooding from the effects of Superstorm Sandy. “Considering the magnitude of the storm, people will be very pleased to see that Main Beach is the way they remember it,” he said. Leatherman, a professor at Florida International University in Miami, has visited beaches around the world and uses criteria like water and sand quality, as well as safety and environmental management, to compile his annual list. Once a beach Javier Baldo the Main Beach visitor reaches pinnacle of No. 1, it is retired from future consideration, he said. Coopers Beach in nearby Southampton, N.Y., was the No. 1 pick in the 2010 survey. Sarasota, Fla.’s Siesta Beach was tops in 2011 and Coronado Beach in California earned the top spot in 2012. The other nine on Leatherman’s 2013 list after Main Beach are: Kahanamoku Beach, Waikiki, Hawaii; St. George Island State Park, Fla.; Hamoa Beach, Maui, Hawaii; Waimanalo Bay State Park, Oahu, Hawaii; Barefoot Beach Preserve County Park, Bonita Springs, Fla.; Cape Florida State Park, Key Biscayne, Fla.; Cape Hatteras, Outer Banks, N.C.; Coast Guard Beach, Cape Cod, Mass.; and Beachwalker Park, Kiawah Island, S.C. East Hampton village residents have free access to Main Beach, although parking permits are required from May 15 to Sept. 15. Non-residents can buy parking passes at $25 per day but they are limited in number, with only 40 non-resident daily parking passes sold on weekends and holidays. Max Scainetti, a lifelong East Hampton resident, said the tiny grains of tan sand and the cleanliness of the beach are two of the things that make Main Beach special. “This is one of the best beaches in the country and I’ve been to a lot of beaches,” Scainetti said. “I think basically it’s a lot to do with the sand. A lot of Long Island beaches tend to be rocky where these are more sandy beaches.” Javier Baldo, an East Hampton cook, said he has visited Main Beach regularly for about eight years. “It’s fairly civilized. It doesn’t get too crowded. The water is delicious,” he said. Delicious? “It’s really great water, it’s really clean. You just have a lot of space.” Baldo said celebrities are sometimes seen at the beach, but people generally keep to themselves. “It’s quiet, there’s no loud music playing.

MISSISSIPPI STATE — Technology offers ways to improve wedding experiences for guests and connect friends and family who could not attend. Some couples choose to broadcast weddings via Skype or other live streaming services to loved ones who are not able to be at the wedding because of distance or illness. Connie Templeton, distance learning analyst for the Mississippi State University Extension Service’s Extension Center for Technology Outreach, said many live streaming services are free, but she recommended hiring a professional videographer to set up the equipment. “It is important to keep the camera stationary to avoid pixilation,” she said. “A professional or tech-savvy friend would be able to help with this. Some wedding photographers and videographers will be able to incorporate this service into the wedding package.” Templeton said practicing with equipment before the ceremony is vital. “I definitely suggest couples test the system beforehand to work out any kinks. They should be aware of the Internet speed to make sure it’s not too slow,” she said. “This will help the whole thing run more smoothly during the actual ceremony.” Templeton said the videographer should be sure to adjust the streaming settings to prevent long distance viewers from disrupting the ceremony by talking. “Live streaming is a favor for the guests, but we must remember the day is really about the bride and groom,” she said. Tech-savvy couples have also found creative ways to incorporate technology in wedding receptions. Bryce Hall, digital and graphic designer, created a photo booth to use at his wedding reception in 2011. “My wife, Rita, had always wanted a photo booth at her wedding, but most photographers were going to charge at least $1,000 for that,” he said. “That simply wasn’t in our budget, so we decided to see what we could do to create our own.” To create the photo booth, Hall used a camera, laptop with photography software, a monitor, a studio- style flash, a softbox lighting kit and a remote control to trigger the camera. He said the remote

This meant the Halls did not have to pay a photographer or ask a friend to operate the camera the entire time. Hall said he tethered the camera to the computer, which connected to the larger monitor. When a guest used the remote, the flash went off and the camera took the photo. The camera transmitted the photo to computer, and the image was displayed on the monitor until the next photo was taken. “I felt like the big screen was important because it allowed people to see what they had just taken,” Hall said. “Everyone got to laugh at the silly photos together, and it just added a nice element to the setup.” Hall said he and Rita created their own backdrop for the photo booth using PVC pipe and fabric. Their backdrop was about 15 feet by 10 feet to accommodate multiple guests at once. To add a creative element to the photo booth, Rita bought inexpensive props for the guests to use. “It became one of the attractions at the wedding that everyone had to be a part of,” he said. “It also allowed my wife and me to get involved with some of the wedding guests for some really fun shots. While we still had professional photographers at the wedding, the photo booth pictures are different and special.”

MISSISSIPPI STATE — The best way to avoid an infamous wedding disaster is to have a supervisor who is able to anticipate factors and think fast when the unexpected occurs. Karen Benson, an area family and child development agent with the Mississippi State University Extension Service, has been on both sides of wedding challenges. After directing several weddings for other couples, she gained planning experience last fall as the mother of the bride. “Experience helps directors anticipate needs and have back-up plans, but no matter how much experience someone has, if they are part of the wedding party, they should not be the director,” she said. “There are too many details that will need special attention at the last minute, often while other things are happening.” Benson said couples may cut some corners to reduce costs, but a good director is a must. “The couple, friends, family and other advisers can be actively involved ahead of time, but on the wedding day, someone outside the immediate wedding party needs to be in charge.” Michael Burns of Tupelo might not seem like a wedding expert, but as a retired fire chief, he is well trained for this sort of major event. “As a father of two daughters and a retired fire chief, I can attest to the fact that weddings and disasters have a lot in common, especially when it comes to managing the chaos created by both,” he said. “Without some system of management, both can go from bad to worse in a matter of seconds.” For Burns, a longtime trainer and advocate for the Incident Command System, it was natural for him to turn to his ICS background when his daughters married. “The ICS strategy facilitates planning and improves communication with everyone involved. The emphasis is on teamwork,” he said. “One person cannot anticipate or respond to every need. Major events, like a wedding, need a written plan of action and an effort to identify gaps that need to be addressed.”

Tavis Smiley celebrates 10th year on PBS BY LYNN ELBER AP Television Writer

LOS ANGELES — Tavis Smiley has stood out in 20 years in broadcasting, and he has no intention of changing his style or substance. He’s the rare black host with national TV and radio platforms, one who sees his job as challenging Americans to examine their assumptions on such thorny issues as poverty, education, and racial and gender equality. In other words, he doesn’t squander his opportunities on PBS’ daily talk show “Tavis Smiley,” which marks its 10th year this month, or on public radio’s “The Tavis Smiley Show” and “Smiley & West,” the latter a forum for commentary he shares with scholar and activist Cornel West. His quarterly “Tavis Smiley Reports” specials for PBS, in-depth looks at topics such as the relationship between the juvenile justice system and the teenage dropout rate, fit the same bold pattern.

Smiley, marking two decades in broadcasting this year, considers himself engaged in a calling as much as a career: “This is the kind of work I think needs to be done. I’m trying to entertain and empower people.” PBS President and CEO Paula Kerger was a public TV executive overseeing New York station WNET when she became interested in launching a Smiley talk show as a companion to “Charlie Rose.” The programs air backto-back on a number of PBS stations. “The two of them have very different styles. Tavis has done a great job of bringing a wide range of people on to public broadcasting,” Kerger said. “He’s constantly looking at the next big idea” to bring to the national dialogue. Smiley, 48, also doesn’t shrink from the repercussions that occur when his opinions, delivered on radio and in interviews in his distinctively punchy cadence, strike a nerve.

He has drawn the ire of conservatives and, because of his insistent criticism of President Barack Obama’s policies, that of some liberals and African-Americans. Smiley contends that members of the Obama administration, whom he didn’t identify, have pressured sponsors to drop their support of his projects, including his anti-poverty initiatives. The White House had no comment, said a spokesman, Kevin Lewis. While Smiley said he understands the desire of blacks to stand protectively by the first AfricanAmerican president, he’s adamant about his right to take Obama to task on rising black unemployment, the use of military drones and other issues. “This administration does not like to be criticized. And the irony of it is, there’s nothing I have tried to hold the president accountable on that my white progressive colleagues have not,” Smiley said. “They’re labeled

courageous critics, but if I say it, I’m an ‘Obama critic.’ There’s race at play in the very question.” He’s unlikely to find boosters on the right. National Review senior editor Jay Nordlinger in 2002 dismissed him as “the black leftist radio personality,” and thenFox News Channel commentator Glenn Beck spurred anti-Smiley letter-writing campaigns to PBS, Smiley said. Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the PBS show’s underwriter since the start, has “consistently stood by our side,” said a Smiley spokeswoman. But others have dropped out or donated money to his projects on the condition of privacy because they’ve heard from a displeased White House, according to Smiley. “I don’t have an antiBarack agenda,” he said, “but this is what I do: My job is to raise questions of accountability.” The public reaction is more generous, Smiley said: While he’s ques-

tioned on the street by people about his views on Obama, they give him the courtesy of a hearing — and continue to pay heed in other ways. “Since Obama has been president, I’ve had not one, but two, New York Times best-selling books, been on the cover of Time and made its 100 list,” the magazine’s tally of the world’s most influential people, in 2009, Smiley said. He’s a popular keynote speaker for a wide range of events, including the upcoming unveiling of a monument to slain civil rights leader Medgar Evers (although one Peoria, Ill., event replaced him as speaker last year, reportedly related to his Obama stance). The Indiana University graduate has received honorary degrees from universities including Tuskegee and Fisk, and he created an exhibition, “America I Am: The African American Imprint,” that wrapped this year after a national tour.

Smiley’s program aimed for diversity from the start, with his first week’s guest list including Bill Cosby, Wesley Clark, Newt Gingrich and Magic Johnson. His 10-year list also boasts, among others, former President Jimmy Carter, Coretta Scott King, Yo-Yo Ma, Toni Morrison and Prince. Smiley speaks to an overwhelmingly white audience on his Public Radio International shows and on TV, and said he appreciates the opportunity to introduce them to a different perspective. Kerger said she looks forward to his “next 10 years” on public broadcasting. So does Smiley, come what may. “You’re going to be challenged when you address inconvenient truths. Sometimes you’re challenged with merit, sometimes without merit. I try to be authentic and be a truth-teller. I have no monopoly on the truth but can try to raise questions that get at the truth.”



Google music plan serendipitous BY RYAN NAKASHIMA Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Google’s new music service offers a lot of eye candy to go with the tunes. The song selection of around 18 million tracks is comparable to popular services such as Spotify and Rhapsody, and a myriad of playlists curated along different genres provides a big playground for music lovers. The All Access service represents Google’s attempt to grab a bigger piece of the digital music market as more people stream songs over mobile phones. Such services are also meant to further wed smartphone users to Google’s Android operating system, where the search leader makes money from advertising and transactions on its digital content store, Google Play. For a monthly fee, All Access lets you listen to as much music as you want over an Internet connection. You can also download songs onto mobile devices for smooth playback later when you don’t have cellphone or Wi-Fi access. It’s worth a try for the discounted monthly rate of $8 if you sign up by the end of June. Those who sign up later will pay $10 a month, the same amount charged by the main competitors, Spotify and Rhapsody. Either way, you get the first month free and can cancel at any time. All Access works on the free Google Play Music app for Android devices and over Web browsers on computers — but not on the iPhone. (Spotify and Rhapsody work on both Android and the iPhone). Visually, the app that I tested on Google’s Nexus 4 smartphone is engaging. Iterating on the list-heavy layouts of its competitors, Google Play Music jazzes up the interface by adding plenty of big artist photos along with little animations, including bouncing equalizer bars and screensize cover art that moves slowly back and forth when a song is playing. You can re-order songs that are in your queue on the fly — something not offered by either Spotify or Rhapsody. But this takes gripping a very thin digital handle to the left of a song title and sliding it up or down. Because it’s much thinner than the thumb I’m using to grip it, I ended up playing songs that I only wanted to move, or deleting them from the queue by accident. The options icon on

About All Access Google Inc.’s new streaming service lets you listen to as much music as you want over an Internet connection. You can also download songs onto mobile devices for offline use as long as your subscription is active. It costs $8 a month if you sign up for a free trial by June 30, and $10 after that. You need an Android device to get the full experience. With Google’s free Google Play Music app for Android, you’ll also be able to listen to music you bought through Google Play and elsewhere. each song title is also tiny and caused frequent mistaps. Where the service starts to get interesting is in its radio function. Like other Internet radio plans, it takes some traits of a particular song and finds others like it somehow. Doing this with Reggie Watts’ comedic beat-box tune “(bleep) (bleep) Stack,” I discovered the song fits within a kind of sub-genre of humorous rappers, after it played Flight of the Conchords’ “Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros,” and MC Chris’ “I Want Candy.” I gave these songs a digital thumbs up, which marks them in a playlist so I can find them later. Google Play Music attempts to do something that Samsung Electronics Co.’s Music Hub did before it. Music Hub blended four things: a music store, an online storage service, unlimited song streaming and an Internet radio player. Google’s app does all those things. In addition, because it comes as an update to the existing Google Play Music app, it preserved the music I took the trouble of uploading to my Google Music storage space prior to the revamp. When Google first launched its music store in 2011, it merely sold songs or albums a la carte. But it offered users free online storage for up to 20,000 songs, including ones they had bought at other stores such as Apple Inc.’s iTunes. Starting last December, Google’s uploader software added the ability to scan your hard drive for songs and match them with songs Google already has on its serv-

ers. That way, you have to upload only the songs Google didn’t recognize. With that, your personal library of owned songs still exists, but the sense of ownership has blurred. With All Access, you still see your library of owned songs in a place called My Library on the Google Play Music app. A lot of that music is stored online, or in the cloud, and requires an Internet connection to listen to. But you can “pin” a song to download a copy for offline listening, something that Google Play Music and other cloud lockers had offered already. You can toggle the view in My Library to see everything you can access in the cloud, or just the stuff you can access on the device without a cellular or Wi-Fi connection. If you start running out of space, you basically “unpin” the song to free up the memory, even though your ownership still exists in the cloud. All Access also allows you to “pin” songs you don’t own. Copies will get downloaded for offline play. Or you can mark songs as favorites by adding them to My Library in the cloud. But because those favorites are stored in the same place as songs you actually own, your sense of ownership will suffer a hit. You might not know which is which until the All Access songs disappear should you ever stop paying the monthly fee. You can share songs from the app to the Google Plus social network, but there’s no Facebook integration as is the case with Spotify and Rhapsody. It also doesn’t integrate with Twitter’s new (hash)music service, the way Rdio and Spotify do quite well. Google’s new music service covers the fundamentals of unlimited on-demand music with Google-like solid execution. And with the radio function running on Google’s vaunted ability to tweak algorithms, it adds a healthy dose of serendipity to the mix, turning up songs and artists I wouldn’t have discovered on my own. That puts it at least on an equal footing with streaming services that have come before it and will persuade some subscribers of those services to switch. Although you need an Android phone to use All Access fully, I don’t believe that in itself will get Apple fans to drop their iPhones. But it’s one more nice thing Android has going for it.

Olive Branch ceremony honors fallen airmen BY TONI LEPESKA The Commercial Appeal

OLIVE BRANCH â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Olive Branch resident Paul Clever was 6 years old when his father went down in a spy plane over Laos during the Vietnam War. After years untangling red tape, investigating the crash and traveling to Laos himself to recover remains from the jungle, Clever officially welcomed his father home. A repatriation ceremony â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the act of returning to the country of citizenship â&#x20AC;&#x201D; was held Saturday with a procession from the Olive Branch soccer fields.

With the help of a police escort, a horse-drawn casket carriage with the remains arrived at Olive Branch High School stadium for the ceremony. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re honoring the entire crew,â&#x20AC;? said Clever, whose father, Louis John Clever, went down in an EC-47Q with nine other men on Feb. 5, 1969. The military recovered some remains within a few months of the crash, and they were buried in November 1969 â&#x20AC;&#x153;but we really donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know who we buried,â&#x20AC;? Clever said. The skeletal mass did not account for all the crew. Another set of remains

was discovered in 1995, and then Clever and his wife, Nita, personally went to Laos in December 2012. With the support of Maximum Recovery in Southeast Asia, they combed the jungle mountainside where the plane crashed. Based on where his father would have been sitting, Clever believes now he does have some of his fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s remains. Othersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; remains are likely included. After the ceremony, where an American flag will be draped on the casket, the remains were taken to an Air Force base in Nebraska for DNA analy-

sis. Clever, 50, who moved to Olive Branch a few years ago for work, has spent a lot of his life trying to piece together what happened to his father. His most vivid memory of him is after Clever was accidentally knocked out with a baseball bat by his sister. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I remember opening my eyes and seeing my dad struck with fear,â&#x20AC;? said Clever, who is married now and has three children. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He picked me up and held me like only a father can.â&#x20AC;? Cleverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father, from Tarentum, Penn., was Air Force radio operator

on the plane during the height of the Vietnam War. The base lost contact with the plane about 21 miles from Chavane, Laos. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where it was found about three months later. The families of the crew were told that there had been an engine fire, but Clever believes that was disinformation because of the classified nature of the aircraft. His investigation has led him to believe that anti-aircraft took the right wing out â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which held the radio gear, disabling the crewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to issue a distress call. Military personnel de-

termined no one could have survived the crash. Cleverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother never remarried, fearing her husband was somehow alive and she would be ashamed if he walked in the door and found her with another man.
